Globetrotter Makes Shot from Helicopter

High above Morey’s Piers Amusement Parks in Wildwood, NJ, Harlem Globetrotters star Bull Bullard made a historic trick shot from a helicopter.  Hovering 210-feet above the beach, it becomes the highest basketball shot ever made from an aircraft. Bull is in Wildwood preparing for four games at the Jersey Shore from Aug. 16-19, plus a national tour starting in the fall.  The Globetrotters are headquartered in the Atlanta suburb of Peachtree Corners, GA.

An Alligator on the Loose in Missouri?

Police thought they were tracking a loose alligator in of all places, Missouri.

Officers in Independence, a Kansas City suburb, responded to a call on a Saturday evening about a large alligator lurking on the embankment of a pond, police spokesman Tom Gentry said Thursday.

An officer called a state conservation agent, who advised him to shoot the alligator because there was little that conservation officials could do at that time, Gentry said.

As instructed an officer shot the alligator, not once but twice, but both times the bullets bounced off -- because the alligator was made of cement.

The property owner told police later that he placed the ornamental gator by the pond to keep children away. But residents had little to fear.

"There are no alligators around here, we are too far north, it's too cold," said Bill Graham, spokesman for the Missouri Department of Conservation.

Gentry acknowledged the incident is drawing a lot of attention.

"In hindsight, it's humorous," he said. "But we have to take every call seriously."
