The city clerk of Evansville, Indiana, is urging residents to send in money for a worthy cause: shipping golf balls to soldiers in Iraq. Apparently, the American Red Cross sent 6,500 balls over there last week, but has at least as many on hand that it can't afford to ship.
"There are hundreds of guys over there, enthusiastic at the thought that Evansville, Indiana, is sending them golf balls," Alberta Matlock, the clerk, told the Associated Press. "I hope we can continue to do this until this war's over and all our people who are over there can come back home."
