By BENJAMIN HECKATHORN What I think of Scouting to me means that I can use useful skills now that I want to learn. It's really exiting and it's changed my view on things. I love going to campouts and showing off my fire building. It's a lot of fun and I want to help out when I can't earn any more badges. It's a lot of fun and I would encourage anyone that wants to give it a try to take a whack at it. Time is too important to waste so I'm learning new skills that will help in the future. I've been in Scouting six years. My best friends Kenny Martin, Zach Meyers, and Dalton Schenk have been in Scouting with each other for all the time in Scouting. We've all gotten our arrow of lights Cub Scouts highest award. We were in Troop 44 until we started Boy Scouts. It's a lot of fun and I like Troop 8. We've done everything together. The only bad thing is when the Senior Patrol Leader Andy eats. Lets just say he gets gassy. I love campouts. They are the most fun part of scouting. We go to almost all campouts that are offered. Our troop leader Mr. Schultz is a cool dude. (If you're reading this Mr. Schultz I was kidding!!!!!!) We usually have a lot of fun It's relay cool most of the stuff we do.

mlboose@norwalkreflector.com Dominic Dellisanti had only one request for the teacher in his food basics class at St. Paul High "Let me make my aunt's cheeseburger soup." Now the recipe has a new name Dominic and Aunt Renee's Cheeseburger Soup. The recipe was as bit a hit in the class as it is in the Dellisanti home.

"One thing we seem to get mostly right in our country is freedom of religion and the practice thereof,' reported CCC's philosopher who is often handy with the day's first thought. "Most of us can recall stories of prisoners suing their government because while incarcerated, they aren't getting some special adjustment such as food or clothing which their religion requires.' "Some of us also get a little bent about certain holidays if we direct a common greeting like ‘Merry Christmas' toward folks of certain faiths who prefer other greetings or perhaps, none at all,' responded the historian.

A major records preservation project is underway in Huron County. At least, I feel it is major since I instigated it and have been the "chief cook and bottle washer' in seeing it carried out in cooperation with Huron County Probate Judge Timothy Cardwell. For more than 30 years I have been aware that more than 900 very early probate estate files existed in Huron County. The earliest date from 1815 when our county's legal system began functioning independently. Before that year our county was attached to Cuyahoga for legal purposes.

AMBOY, Wash. - A tattered, half-buried parachute unearthed by kids had D.B. Cooper country chattering Wednesday over the fate of the skyjacker, who leapt from a plane 36 years ago and into the lore of the Pacific Northwest. While the FBI investigates whether the fabric came from the world's only unsolved skyjacking, the discovery re-energized a legend in the southwestern Washington woods where Cooper may have landed, and where time has helped turn him into a folk hero.
