Signs of NJ Dumb Kids of the future

Kids return 20G in lost Yank tix, get to see games

Jersey boys who done good, (l. to r.) Chris Osmun, Corey Platt, Pat Huck, Matt Stephens, Matt Rea, Jaleel Fraser, Christian Flores, Kevin McNany, Will Cummings and Kenny Miller at Summit, N.J., city hall yesterday with 20G worth of Yanks tix.

When ten New Jersey kids stumbled upon $20,000 worth of Yankee playoff tickets lying on the street, they celebrated their good fortune.
Then the kids from Summit did something remarkable - they turned the tickets in.

"It didn't seem right keeping them," 12-year-old Chris Osmun modestly explained. "Each ticket was worth a lot and there were tons of tickets. We thought if you had bought something with that much money, you would want to know what happened to them."

The precious tickets, bound for the regional headquarters of Wachovia bank, tumbled out the back of a UPS truck Monday and were strewn across the streets of Summit - just waiting for someone to grab.

The Summit Ten could have kept the bounty. After all, wasn't "finders keepers" meant for this kind of thing?

Instead, the seventh-graders turned over the tickets to the Summit police and earned the honor and reward that come from doing the right thing.

"It's been pretty amazing," Osmun said.

Yankee owner George Steinbrenner applauded the kids' honesty, and invited them, along with three guests each, to Thursday's division-clincher against the Minnesota Twins. For some of the boys, it was their first trip to Yankee Stadium.

"It's a tribute to their honesty and total integrity," Steinbrenner said in a statement relayed by spokesman Howard Rubenstein. "Those kids showed true spirit."

Wachovia plans to invite the kids and their parents to see a New Jersey Nets game in December from the bank's corporate box.

But it seems only fair for the boys - who passed up a chance to see the Yanks in the playoffs - to experience October magic in Yankee Stadium.

So the Daily News will treat the boys next week to prime box seats to Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

"That's great!" said Matt Rea, 12.

Of Wachovia's 70 missing tickets, 66 were found and turned over to Summit police.

Corey Platt, 12, said some of his school friends initially thought it was "messed up and retarded" to turn in the tickets.

"Yeah, they did think we were crazy," said Patrick Huck, 12. "But we couldn't keep 'em."

Still, the boys were unprepared for the hoopla their decision would create.

Elizabeth Platt, Corey's mom, said the response has been a bit overwhelming. Her son was supposed to serve detention Thursday for missing a homework assignment. But detention was put off until next week so he could go to the Yankee game.

"Corey hasn't been the greatest student at school, so it's good to see him be recognized this way for doing something good," she said. "I just don't want all the attention to make him think that there's always a reward for doing the right thing."
