· Ben Hoffman, a seventh grader at the Carlisle Public School, has been selected to the prestigious Lightning Baseball of New England 13-Year-Old AAU baseball team. Ben was one of 16 players chosen from more than 75 players from Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine who tried out over five sessions this fall.

Ben plans on trying out as a catcher, pitcher, and outfielder. Head Coach Rick Petersen, also an Associate Scout with the San Diego Padres, says "Ben has a good chance to be one of our top players. He has excellent arm speed for a 13-year-old. We clocked him on the radar gun at 69 m.p.h. He also is the fastest player on the team. His 60-yard dash time of 7.6 is one of the fastest we've ever recorded for a 13-year-old."

Fathers and daughters have a lively time at the Girl Scout Father-Daughter square dance held at the Scout House in Concord.
