  Many Louisiana Scout families have been impacted and displaced by flooding. Both, the Evangeline Area Council (Lafayette) and Istrouma Area Council (Baton Rouge) are operating with limited communication and staff. This fund has been set up to make it easy for those wanting to help. Your support will provide new uniforms and handbooks to Scouts and leaders who are devastated by the floods and help both councils again become fully operational. Thank you in advance for your continued prayers and support.

The crew was filled with ambitious teens seeking a career in Law Enforcement and/ or...

11-year-old Charlie Borowczak doesn’t want presents for his Birthday. Instead, he asks for donations to The Salvation Army Angel Tree program. This year he has already raised enough money for eight Angels and by Christmas, he expects to make Christmas possible for 23 kids in need. The Angel Tree program allows people to “adopt” a child in need for the holidays and buy their Christmas presents. At age six, Charlie adopted his first two Angels and was so inspired by the experience that he asked his cousin to do the same the following year – together they adopted six angels. Now, every holiday...

Clearly, it’s wise to dine in a restaurant with a member of the Dallas City Council, at least one who knows the Heimlich Maneuver. On Saturday afternoon, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings was grabbing a bite with son Gunnar at the downtown El Fenix when they espied a woman turning red and gasping for air. The woman told WFAA-Channel 8 she was a few bites into her fajitas, but recalls little about the event: “When I turned around I started gasping for air. I remember standing up, and that’s about all I remember.” Next thing Helen Mayer knew, Mike Rawlings was standing behind her, performing the...
