    • Good post. Idealistic, but this should be the visionary model of every council. The higher the visionary in the organization, the broader the success of the organization. I posted a few times lately that the quality of units are directly related to the quality of the district leaders. And of course the quality of the council is directly related. But not always. I have experienced strong district leaders who leverage their power over weak paid council representatives. So, nothing is guaranteed.  As I have said before, the best councils and districts are the ones that express vivid visions that units can understand and follow,  and recruit the right leaders in positions to match the required skills to develop the units. I think this is where Churkhardt is going. The situation at the district level can be a paradox; leadership without vision don't typically recruit skilled leaders. And if they don't respect vision, they aren't likely to replace themselves with visionary substitutes. There are many successful councils like Cburkhardt's out there, but they are lucky because there aren't that many visionaries like Cburkhardt in high positions. Barry  
    • I keep hoping they'll revise it so that A and B fit on 1 single piece of paper (front/back).  It would make it easier for troops to maintain their set of forms and it would be half us much paper for camps.
    • I'm disappointed to hear of the loss of  any resource my fellow scouters find useful.  I've never known about events there though, and when asked about online merit badge classes, I just mention Scoutmaster Bucky.  
    • Absolutely. I mean, they'd need a translator for a start. Chip? That's a crisp right? Or french fries? 
    • According to Wikipedia  "The median income for a household in the city was $38,255, and the median income for a family was $41,786. Males had a median income of $32,348 versus $21,772 for females. The per capita income for the city was $14,960. About 6.2% of families and 7.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 7.4% of those under age 18 and 11.1% of those age 65 or over."
