For years after he retired from a Chicago-area foundry, master mechanic John R. Grant traveled in his white Ford cargo van, spending time in Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and the Chicago suburbs. His last stop came in late March when Grant, 82, died of lung cancer at a motel in Sheldon, Iowa, a town of about 5,000. The former Calumet City, Ill., resident, whom police described as a transient, surprised everyone with what he left behind in Room 20: $263,000 in small bills inside a vinyl cassette-tape case.

What was scheduled to be a baseball game Thursday afternoon turned into "Battles at the Ballpark," a two-hour soap opera that took place on the field and in the stands at Reseda High. Chatsworth defeated Reseda, 7-6, in a West Valley League game, enabling Chatsworth (8-2, 5-1) to remain in a first-place tie with El Camino Real. Reseda fell to 1-5. The central character in the plot was Reseda's Mike Stone.

When John Grant started out as a marine biologist, he imagined himself working in the kind of setting one might see on a Sierra Club calendar--quietly conducting shellfish counts on a pristine stretch of California coast. Instead, 17 years later, Grant finds himself responsible for guarding sand crabs, pelicans, grunion and other sea creatures from oil spills off Los Angeles and Orange counties, a marine superhighway for tankers, cargo ships and pleasure craft.

A bomb shelter that was allegedly built for President John F. Kennedy has been put on display as part of the Palm Beach Maritime Museum. The bunker was built 25 feet underground on Peanut Island, just north of Palm Beach where the Kennedys had an estate, in 1961. "The cover story was it was a munitions depot," says museum president John Grant, who notes the site was leased by the Secret Service and has bathrooms, a communications center and air filtration.
