  • Basketball with nine players on a team
    Saturday, August 31, 2019 4:00 AM
    Coach Mac Petty gave a very interesting presentation about the “History of Basketball” at the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club this week.
    Did you know that the original name of the game was “Basket Ball” and there were nine players on a team! Basketball is the only major sport that originated in the United States when a physical education teacher in Springfield Massachusetts, by the name of James Naimsmith, was asked to come up with a sport that students could play inside during the winter. He originally had two eighteen-inch square boxes and an old soccer ball that he was going to use with his class. He set them up in the auditorium before class, but a hard-working custodian saw the empty boxes and threw them away before Naimsmith came back with his students. At this point Naimsmith had to go out to the fruit market down the street and grabbed two peach baskets to throw the ball into.

    The Montgomery County Master Gardeners met on Monday Aug. 12 with 14 members in attendance.
    President Susan Smith called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. in the Jr. Leader’s Bldg at the 4-H grounds.
    A motion was made and carried to approve the minutes from our July meeting that had previously been sent to members via e-mail by secretary Priscilla Zachary.
    Treasurer Paula Furr reported on our finances and let members know that she will be adding the usual 25 percent of the profit earned from the April Lawn and Garden Show into the Future Fairgrounds Fund. It was suggested that maybe some of that funding could be used toward some of the needed improvement projects at the current fairgrounds. The discussion was tabled for lack of information.
    Ashley Adair, coordinator did say that members interested in pursuing some changes along with new ideas should attend the monthly Fair Board meeting on Sept. 3 at 6:30 p.m., to be held in the Jr. leader’s bldg at the fairgrounds. Any additional information could then be brought to the group for discussion. Several members plan to attend.
