    Are there any female Scout Executives in the US?

    Oct, 2014: Sharon Moulds, SE/CEO Laurel Highlands Council 2014-present https://triblive.com/news/editorspicks/6945412-74/moulds-scout-scouting "She is one of seven women among about 300 Boy Scout executives. She oversees programs for about 30,000 Boy Scouts in 16 council districts across Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia."

    Are there any female Scout Executives in the US?

    Yes. Wendy Shaw , SE/CEO Coronado Area Council , comes to mind. https://www.ksal.com/first-female-scout-executive-to-begin/ "Shaw will join the Council in Salina on February 18th. Shaw will be one of only a handful of female Scout Executives in the country."

    Omaha Tribe Elder and Others - disrepect at National Mall

    I would hope on a scout outing, that our adult supervision would quickly intervene and move youth to a safer gathering point. My $0.02

    Helping Others Who Help Others - auxilium semper

    Boy Scout Troop 211 from Astoria helped gather (food pantry) donations for the Coast Guard over the past week. They and some other scouts from Portland were on hand over the weekend to help move supplies. “A lot of people affected by this are my friends at school,” said Kegan Rascoe, a senior patrol leader with Troop 211. “They’re struggling to feed their families.” More info and great photo of a scout at source link: https://www.dailyastorian.com/news/local/food-pantry-for-government-workers-serves-more-than/article_610bce7a-1d33-11e9-9509-ef7ecd81d659.html More than 1,300 federal employees and their families left in economic limbo by the government shutdown lined up Saturday and Sunday outside the Astoria Masonic Lodge for the Be the Light food pantry.

    Omaha Tribe Elder and Others - disrepect at National Mall

    Thanks for the save. As to @DuctTape point, I misunderstood the incident and thought a scout act of kindness directed towards one of the groups might help. I should have been better informed; I failed the "Covington Catholic Test".

    Recruiting for council training committee

    Powerpoint and me? That'll be the day. Good point about asking who else is on the committee and their mindset.

    Recruiting for council training committee

    Is Council interested in what I can bring to training scouters or do they want worker bees who will stick to a fixed script? I would want to know the details and what decision-making authority I would have. My $0.02

    Omaha Tribe Elder and Others - disrepect at National Mall

    Maybe. I have now looked at a couple other videos of the incident. and who did what when is becoming less clear. Apparently there were more than two groups protesting/representing different causes.

    Troopwebhost vs Scoutbook

    @VAD welcome to scouter.com
  13. Might be kind for Scouts to send notes of appreciation to Elder Nathan Philips. Let him know those youth are not representative of American youth. https://www.omaha.com/news/nebraska/omaha-tribe-member-in-spotlight-in-face-of-taunting-teens/article_475ee455-cf4c-510a-a9a1-2d29b25eb0f2.html My $0.02

    Shooting Sports in Scouting’s Program

    Historically, cowboys who carried revolvers left the hammer on an empty chamber to prevent misfire. Not an issue with modern revolvers. With semi's, we are trained to carry/draw with a round in the chamber. Would you have time or a hand available to rack the slide? Maybe, maybe not. Back to OP, we used .22's (even during ammo shortage a few years back) for Rifle Shooting merit badge. Firearms are tools and as such require training for their safe use . Safe is the gotcha - proper eye and ear protection is not cheap . Lead cleaning hand soap is often over-looked. Secure firearm storage and cleaning are musts. An interesting question to pose, say you are in a public area and you see a handgun lying there, unattended in full view what do you do? 1. Call 911 and leave area, tell others to stay away. Guns are dangerous and we don't want to disturb existing fingerprints. 2. Call 911 and make the firearm safe - point in a safe direction and unload it. 3. Call 911 and listen to dispatch instructions. 4. Something else or does the answer depend who you are and your firearm experience. My $0.02
  15. IMO, a typical, non-engaged CO is less effective in selecting troop leadership than engaged parents. My $0.02
