dear kidflash, i am the grandchild of "tony"betz. Though he passed away about 21 years ago, the family is alive and well. I have asked my grandma
and uncle a million times at christmas about the whereabouts of "The Ball", but I just get a smile. See, I was not born yet when it was found, but I
was raised with all the stories. I don't know if they still have it, or gave it away, but the gov't never got it-though they tried a long time ago.
Wish I had a chance to see it too, but I guess Grandma can really keep a secret. And the family did get tired of the press, from what I've heard, it
was harassment. But it was not a hoax. Dr. Hynek(one of the Dr.s that researched it-also had work at area 51) he made a small appearence at the end of
the movie, Close Encounters of the third kind. He's the old bearded man smoking the pipe at the landing of the ufo. Go figure.
