Building a 5-0 lead after three innings, the Curley-John- ston team had to rely on a Sultan error which scored Brian Cottrell in the sixth to take a narrow 6-5 margin over Sultan.

Sultan's comback was led by Shawn Stucker's three run homer in the fourth, followed by two more in the fifth to knot the score.

Young Readers Turn Sleuth In Monroe Library Club Tracking down good books will be the job of young readers who join the Super Sleuth Reading Club at the Monroe Library this summer. As soon as school is out for the summer, budding detectives may receive a Super Sleuth Reading Club folder and begin to solve the ten clues to the "Case of the Missing Cookies". Each clue is accompanied by space in which to record a book read during the summer. After reading five books and solving five clues, each detective will receive Super Sleuth's Mystery Handbook full of puzzles, riddles and things to do. When 10 books have been read and 10 clues solved, the case is closed and each sleuth will receive Super Sleuth's Code Disk which can be used to send secret messages to fellow detectives. Books of all kinds are available from which young readers may make their selections, including mysteries and other imaginative stories as well as true books. Free programs featuring puppet shows, films, stories and crafts for children of all ages will be offered at all libraries during the summer and everyone is welcome whether a member of the Reading Club or not.
