    Ugly merit badge sashes...

    Same for me. Back then I had these 2 sashes. I kept thinking why not one sash. The front for mb's, the back for OA.

    My new Scout's going to camp but freaking out

    With anxieties...Small steps. Gradual transitions, with no sudden surprises, to build confidence. Become a trained leader. Plan to stay the week if he needs you. Hopefully after 2 or 3 days, he will say I got this Mom.

  7. Eagle Nathanael Batson, 18 has been selected as the 2019 Section 1 recipient of the Heart of the Arts Award, making him eligible to be the national winner, who will be recognized June 29 at the NFHS summer meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana. “I’m honored,” he said Thursday in the music room at the high school in Fairfield. “It just kind of shows, with respect to what I’ve been through, my tribulations and adversities. I’m so overcome, and I so love music. “It shows I love music and have a heart for music. That’s the exact purpose of the award — somebody has heart for music, heart for art.” Nathanael, 18, is legally blind despite three rounds of chemotherapy that began at age 5. Like his sister Corina, 30, and his mother Yvonne, 59, Nathanael has a rare hereditary disorder, neurofibromatosis, which causes tumors throughout the body. In music, Nathanael has qualified and played with the Kennebec Valley Music Educators’ Association Band every year of high school and the All-State Band as a sophomore. Batson memorizes all of his music and is well-known for his stirring performances of the Star-Spangled Banner at school, civic and community events. Outside of music, Batson achieved the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America during his early teens by organizing a Pops Band that performed a free concert at the Maine Veterans’ Home in Augusta. He also participated in the 2017 National Scout Jamboree Band in West Virginia, which performed for more than 40,000 people from around the world.

    Flooding and Sandbagging

    In the summer of 1950, when I was 6 years old, there was a series of floods close to my hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska. The disaster killed 23 people and destroyed 60,000 acres of land. Some adults thought it would be good experience for the Boy Scouts to help out by delivering food and clothing to victims. I was a Cub Scout and went along. I remember sitting in the bus staring out at waters that lined the highway as we entered a small town with our packages. When we left to head back to Lincoln, a river of water was flowing across the highway blocking our way. I was terrified, even though our driver managed to get through to safety. Now and again, I still have dreams of being stranded by a flood, cut off from all means of escape with only the hope that the water will recede on its own. In time the water does recede. The terror subsides, and people return to normal. But what will “normal” be when a changing climate drives the weather that produces new floods? by Bob Kerrey, Democrat, is a former governor and U.S. senator from Nebraska. http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/mar/23/bob-kerrey-midwests-floods-are-catastrophic-is-thi/

  11. Posted March 21, 2019 Boy Scouts made rosaries during a Scout retreat sponsored by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Catholic Committee on Scouting. The theme of the day-long retreat was “Champions of Christ: Military Saints and Chaplains.” More details and photos at source link http://catholicphilly.com/2019/03/news/people-and-events/scouts-on-retreat-make-rosaries-for-u-s-military/

    Privacy of Health Forms

    Yes, but that adult will not be admitted to the scout activity, at least not around here. We have fewer adults volunteering for summer camp due to information being asked which they feel is not needed and the lack of security in handling that information. Most adults expect their info to be returned to them at the conclusion of the activity, as in, show me the law. I did omit my $$# when the Health Form required a Social Security. National felt that ER's required that info for treatment. Not true.. As I said earlier, my idea for treating grown-ups as grown-ups. The personal medical information form would have the results of the most recent exam, medical history, prescriptions, vaccinations, and insurance. This would be securely held and handled by the adult and trained medical personnel. The activity permission form would list permitted, restricted, prohibited activities, as well as allergy, contact and pickup information. Non-medical personnel , such as units, could have copies of this form. Non-medical personnel would have patient relevant info for basic first aid . Another $0.02

    Privacy of Health Forms

    Consider the expense of an unqualified, untrained, non-medical person MIShandling your confidential medical and insurance information. But more to my point regarding adult participants, IMO a BSA event need only have a signed doctor authorization for activity and contact info. If BSA thinks otherwise, get HIPAA trained, compliant.

    NATIONAL POLICY: AOL and Crossover Ceremonies

    IMHO, there will be a move towards a stronger association with the US Park Service which we already have a relationship - Scout Rangers. My $0.02
