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 : Behind “The Wall” By: David Hodge Behind “The Wall” is a memoir of author David Hodge’s experiences behind prison walls. These experiences remind us that we do not want to waste our life in prison before deciding to live an honest, God-fearing life. We only get one life here on Earth. Maintaining our freedom is the best thing we can do for ourselves, free to go and come as we please, free to choose our partners in life, free to manage our life. We do not have to sell dope for a living or use illegal drugs to escape reality. Society needs to stop idolizing drug dealers and praising a man for holding down a job. And the responsible ones of this country need to work on paying a decent wage to our uneducated workforce so they are not enticed by the possibilities of illegal activities. That is what fuels the penal system, folks taking a chance at the American Dream because they believe they can support themselves, family, and lifestyle with such activities. David hopes his experiences will touch the hearts of those trying not to return to prison, those lost without a direction, and those looking for guidance.

Summary : B.G.P., Tha' Berch', Weed Gardens..." All nicknames representing a neighborhood - Berchwin Gardens Projects! Berchwin was a Garden because of the talented budding youth housed in the neighborhood. Hundreds of bright young children ran in courtyards, on playgrounds and in hallways of a Garden. That Garden budded youth that blossomed into adults affected by the ills of the projects. Some say it is hard to have a Garden in the Projects because there is rarely even one rose that grows from concrete. There are a few success stories of those who escaped from B.G.P.'s, finding success and never returning, but those stories are not told for inspiration but rather disgust. One thing about those housed in this Project Garden, unity was essential. Poverty had a vise grip on those of Berchwin but close inter - family bonds gave Berchwin a sense of community pride. Even with the common ills of the projects; dysfunctional families, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, disease and poverty Tha' Berch was home to a special budding star. A star that was destined to represent the Garden... This young rose of "Weed Gardens" was destined because those before him of the same lineage and genes struggled. That struggle was passed down through painful family issues that created a youngster focused on not being like "them." Meet that youngster... Meet that star... Meet that rose amongst weeds.... See life through his eyes... Tobe Carberry and Samont Washington Present; The Sonny Chronicles, Volume One: First Things Learned Are Hardest to Forget.

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

Summary : In reading this book, you will get a glimpse of my day-to-day life. The tirades (or stories) are based on true life events that have either pissed me off or made me think. No doubt, this book will make some of you uncomfortable and somewhat offended. Half of you won't make it through the first tirade. I don't care. But if you can keep reading, your uncomfort may release you and be a blessing from a maniac. I feel so many things go unquestioned or unanswered in the world. We live lives not of quiet despair , but of quiet slavery. We submit to a 9 to 5 , we submit to marriage and divorce, we submit to 2.5 children, we submit to our friends' dumb ass suggestions, we submit we submit . We witness things that piss us off and we do nothing. Yet, we will wait for someone to take up the mantle and speak out. Well, I could no longer wait for someone else to do what I should have done long ago. When I wrote the first tirade, I was pissed off. And while I was writing it, I had no intention of writing another (at least initially). But, the release was incredible - therapeutic. And the funny fucking thing was I really had something to say all be it in my own unique way. People wrote me to let me know I had tapped into something or touch a nerve. My friends wanted me dead..my family wanted me deader. But, everyone wanted more and I had more to say. So as you read this book, whether you are sitting on the toilet, in prison cell or in your cubicle at work, it really is my gift to you. Please let me know what you think. Hell, you may become the next subject of a tirade

Summary : This book describes dialect differences in American English and their impact on education and everyday life. It explores some of the major issues that confront educational practitioners and suggests what practitioners can do to recognize students’ language abilities, support their language development, and expand their knowledge about dialects. Topics addressed include: *popular concerns about the nature of language variation; *characteristic structures of different dialects; *various interactive patterns characteristic of social groups; *the school impacts of dialect differences in speaking, writing, and reading, including questions about teaching Standard English; and *the value of dialect education in schools to enable students to understand dialects as natural and normal language phenomena. Changes in the Second Edition: In this edition the authors reconsider and expand their discussion of many of the issues addressed in the first edition and in other of their earlier works, taking into account especially the research on dialects and publications for audiences beyond linguistics that have appeared since the first edition. This edition is offered as an updated report on the state of language variation and education in the United States. Dialects in Schools and Communities is rooted in questions that have arisen in workshops, surveys, classes, discussion groups, and conversations with practitioners and teacher educators. It is thus intended to address important needs in a range of educational and related service fields. As an overview of current empirical research, it synthesizes current understandings and provides key references—in this sense it is a kind of translation and interpretation in which the authors’ goal is to bring together the practical concerns of educators and the vantage point of sociolinguistics. No background in linguistics or sociolinguistics is assumed on the part of the reader. This volume is intended for teacher interns and practicing teachers in elementary and secondary schools; early childhood specialists; specialists in reading and writing; speech/language pathologists; special education teachers; and students in various language specialties.

Summary : Marooned in an Oregon trailer park, Josie Wallgood thinks she's discovered a way to hit it big as a psychic headliner. While barely making rent money as a fortune-teller spinning tales for the gullible, a trusting heiress hires her to exorcise the spirit of her father Max who was killed in action during the Korean War. Josie teams up with Cain Reeves, a washed-out minor league catcher, and hatches a plot to bilk her client out of the family fortune. But something seems to be going wrong-all Josie's cornball predictions start coming true, and the missing pieces to a twenty-five year mystery in her victim's past begin to fall into place. Is "Madame Josephina" really on the path to celestial stardom, or is she just another footnote in the Psychic Hall of Fame?
