  1. At one time, there was a calculator to help determine a payout based on state and degree of abuse. Not sure where it was....but I’m still waiting on how much and when!
  2. No news at all? After daily posts for over two years, it is strange that all the conversations have ended. I guess everyone is just waiting for what’s next?
  3. I thought the Hartford and Century contributions would increase substantially. They are sickeningly low. What is the accuracy of this BSA calculator now? https://www.bsarestructuring.org/estimated-potential-payment-calculator/ Seems like there may have been an additional calculator at a law firm website.
  4. I would argue the physicians did not desire or even know how to do the work of the lower paid staff. And, as you said, it was temporary. Some of those staff might have preferred to collect the state and federal unemployment for awhile too! SE’s are fully capable of doing a program or executives jobs as required. However, a DE or a office assistant is not remotely qualified to do the job of a SE.
  5. And what Council is this? Poor leadership in my opinion. Cut some staff and reassign some responsibilities if needed. Cut some staff and services as needed. Don’t work for less than you have earned and deserve. Name another business that does that. That council will merge with another when the dust settles. Districts are expected to serve a certain number of youth, units, and be financially sustainable. If not, cut the position and leave it open, or merge districts. Don’t take away a person’s income and personal self worth. Scout executives salaries are set by the local b
  6. There has always been an attitude that council and national office employees and boards are just idiots. Those employees don’t know the real world and we are not following their rules. It doesn’t matter if it is dodgeball, squirt guns, separate sleeping tents, bee keeping, swimming, or youth protection....there is always a group that will break the rules and do their own thing. More Youth will be molested in BSA.
  7. CS is the only reason this topic has educated anyone to the extent that it has. Some of you are witty and knowledgeable, but not very analytical at a USAToday level. So how is the patch trading market currently? Have BSA patches increased in value, about the same, or there is lack of interest? I have some to move.
  8. Anyone received the packet yet? i have no desire for my spouse to question the package. I have delayed an out of town trip for two weeks now. It looks like I’ll need to wait again. Also, the transcripts from town halls have been updated. I missed a lot on the 7th after zoom 1 hour shutdown. Patiently waking for CS to return with his comments, even those I may not like or agree. Lawyers and moderators are not on my gift list.
  9. My observation is the moderators on this site are half crazy. I've never seen so much editing and censorship. Some attorneys are lions and some are vultures. Let people speak their mind. Placing CS in some kind of delayed post prison is silly. Nobody would understand 1/2 of this case without his posts. We sure don’t need his posts censored and whitewashed. Are the moderators simply jealous of his posts? If BSA fails, what will the moderators do? Sit around in green shorts and red jackets trading old antique patches?
  10. When should a claimant receive the court mailing? I’m on my own without an attorney and I have not received anything yet. I thought October 15 was mentioned somewhere. I missed the TCC meeting. I hope they post the video today.
  11. Here is a TCC Town Hall observation and a suggestion for the committee. i don’t know who is compiling their written transcripts, but they are ridiculously slow. I could compile the transcript in just a few hours of typing. Are Zoom meetings limited to one hour only? If not, perhaps they can throw a few more dollars to Zoom to fully record the meeting! i look forward to getting my packet and voting to REJECT the BSA plan.
  12. There seem to be a lot of rabbit holes in this topic. As I understand now, RSA 1.0 is gone. There is a RSA 2.0 working wirh the CO’s included that can be killed if nobody’s happy. Are the grey shade state tiers still in play? Or, the sol’s are back to 1% equity? The “how much and when” part is where I want to arrive!
  13. So my takeaways from the TCC zoom meeting… BSA plans to file a RSA by midnight today if so, TCC will have another zoom meeting tomorrow night. Only 5000 claimants do not have a lawyer. SOL victims are going to get the short end of the stick with insurance settlements.
  14. Councils should keep copies of their board minutes and insurance policies. But, how many of those records are actually complete? How many scout executives just shredded those old records on their way out the door so they could leave the next guy a cleaner office?
  15. Fees are fees I suppose. However, it does seem like BSA has dragged their feet. For instance, why are so many claimants still not assigned to a state or council? It is not difficult to ascertain if a person lived in X town or attended X camp in X year, there is a high probability that person was in X council. We know membership records were not computerized unless someone typed those names into databases. We know councils can shred paper copies of membership forms after 3 years. I just wonder how good the national records are for the past. We know there are people that particip
