More input on mystery balls 

Dear Editor, 

I don’t know if this story has brought any further information, but my mother-in-law saw these floating balls the same night in Rockford. She took pictures and asked me to come over to check them out. She was pretty freaked also. In talking with some friends, I brought these fireballs up. They knew exactly what I was talking about. While camping in Grand Haven this summer, they witnessed these as well. They found where they were coming from along the beach. Apparently, they are plastic grocery bags that have been filled with a special kind of gas, lit on fire on the inside, tied, and then let go to float up in the air—all just for fun.

Hope this helps!

Fan loved ballpark experience

Dear Editor,

As a 1973 RHS Alumni, I had not been to a football game in years (my boys graduated in 98 and 01). I thought the game at the Whitecaps sounded like fun and am so glad I decided to go. The football team looked great, the band looked great, but most of all, I enjoyed the drive back to Rock ford with two solid lanes of traffic in front and back of me all the way (it made me feel like what a community!). Parking – $5; ticket – $7; feeling like part of the community – priceless. I may even start going to homecoming games again this year.
