Summary : Hittin' the Jumper is a nostalgic tale of the key role that the game of basketball has played in the life of an ordinary player-a 60-year journey from the alley hoops and playgrounds of his boyhood hometowns in Montana to the hallowed halls of Notre Dame and Harvard, white-shoe law firms in New York and Chicago, and a variety of urban and suburban courts. Along the way, the author re-discovers fascinating characters and lost worlds in an appreciation of the gifts that playing the sport for a lifetime can bring. Several with whom he has shared the court-teammates and opponents-became famous in politics, business, and academia, and a few were former NBA players. Most, however, were not in the headlines. Their stories are diverse. Some are filled with humor, others are instructive and insightful, particularly in dealing with the challenges of continuing to play as age encroaches, while a few are tragic. All touched the author as they did their fellow hoopsters through the years. The author's basketball life has been shaped by the history, traditions, and ethos of the communities where he played, whether it was the local basketball lore or, even more generally, the prevailing culture of a place. These places include the neighborhood of the birth of our country and the site of the birth of the game of basketball itself. The courts in these communities each possess a distinctive character. Some were inspirational because of their historic connections while others simply provided comfort with their familiarity, intimacy, and charm. Lovers of basketball and the history of sport, of unusual life stories and sentimental journeys, will find this memoir both pleasurable and informative.

Summary : Like its predecessor, Dialects in Schools and Communities, this book illuminates major language-related issues that educational practitioners confront, such as responding to dialect related features in students’ speech and writing, teaching Standard English, teaching students about dialects, and distinguishing dialect difference from language disorders. It approaches these issues from a practical perspective rooted in sociolinguistic research, with a focus on the research base for accommodating dialect differences in schools. Expanded coverage includes research on teaching and learning and attention to English language learners. All chapters include essential information about language variation, language attitudes, and principles of handling dialect differences in schools; classroom-based samples illustrating the application of these principles; and an annotated resources list for further reading. The text is supported by a Companion Website (www.routledge.com/cw/Reaser) providing additional resources including activities, discussion questions, and audio/visual enhancements that illustrate important information and/or pedagogical approaches. Comprehensive and authoritative, Dialects at School reflects both the relevant research bases in linguistics and education and educational practices concerning language variation. The problems and examples included are authentic, coming from the authors’ own research, observations and interactions in public school classrooms, and feedback in workshops. Highlights include chapters on oral language and reading and writing in dialectally diverse classrooms, as well as a chapter on language awareness for students, offering a clear and compelling overview of how teachers can inspire students to learn more about language variation, including their own community language patterns. An inventory of dialect features in the Appendix organizes and expands on the structural descriptions presented in the chapters.

Summary : The irrepressible Sammy Bench joined the Navy during World War II and never before or after has there been such a sailor. Part con man, part savior, we follow his antics, trials and tribulations through boot camp and into a Ships Company assignment. These were the men who fought their libidos and fears; sailors who “comforted” war widows and romanced the young ladies who creamed to do their part for the war effort. We meet Sammy’s buddies Billy and Bernie and his girlfriend Sarah, and what a profound effect each one’s life has, as a result of Sammy. They struggle together to try to make sense through the later years of WWII before the Bomb ended it all. The novel grabs a hold and won’t let go from page one. This book could only be written by one who was there, Seaman Joseph Currey, Liberty Hound. Joseph Currey is a retired State of California Security Enforcement Officer who served in the United States Navy during the later years of World War II. He completed boot camp at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Chicago. Mr. Currey is also the author of a comedy-mystery novel titled, The Nutt House, and has written 11 short stories. He resides in Encinitas, California. Quotes: "The Liberty Hound made my laugh and made me cry. What remarkable memories of Boots and making the most of liberty time with the ladies of Chicago and Milwaukee. We were young and invincible but we also knew that every fling might be our last. Joe Currey has captured an era on paper that is truly a page-turner. If you were a Liberty Hound, you might want to hide this book from your wife."-Fred Puffenburger, Lt. Commander, (Ret.), Pearl Harbor Survivor "The author puts you in the middle of the action of WW II boot camp. In the back of our minds we all thought we might become just one of the million-plus who were expected to die in the invasion of Japan, so make every day count. The Liberty Hound does just that in a most remarkable story. The action and fun never stops until the last page. Riveting!" Thanks, Joseph Currey, for such vivid memories."-L.C. Smythe, M/Sgt., USMC (Ret.), Purple Heart Recipient
