Reactions mixed to Boys Scouts accepting girls

Local councils weigh in on Boy Scouts' admittance of girls

I wanted to preserve the moment.

"Utilizing the resources that we have already, we have the capacity to serve more kids and to bring programming, leadership development skills". Ninety-percent of USA female astronauts, 80 percent of US female tech leaders, 75 percent of USA female Senators, and more than half of all US female business owners are part of the Girl Scout sisterhood.

She is among many Girl Scout alumni concerned that camping and other outdoor activities have lost their prominence in the programming now promoted by the GSUSA.

Never heard of a Bronze Award? Amy Mountain, director of communications for the Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania - which covers the four Valley counties among its 30 statewide - said this week her organization has seen a 38 percent increase in new girls in the new Scouting year, which began October 1.

And what those Girl Scouts offer the community in return. I have a secret for you: there is.

Eminem unleashes rap attack on Trump and A-list stars approve
James Corden also imagined Trump's rap-response to Eminem's diss track, which borrowed from "The Real Slim Shady". Eminem has unleashed a lyrical tirade against President Donald Trump , saying he " came to stomp ".

The Coles' three daughters were involved with Girl Scouts - now one even leads her own troop - and their grandchildren are all Boy and Girl Scouts as well.

Many parents like Mary Morris are happy with the decision."Times are changing and the matter of the fact is boys and girls should be able to learn the same and have the same values". A few years ago, a Williamstown troop hosted a "reunion dinner" for the displaced residents of The Spruces to come together after being scattered after Tropical Storm Irene ruined their homes. The council represents 18 counties in the Big Country area.

What Girl Scouts needs is you to lend a helping hand.

In some ways, that part makes sense. They loved using the grommet tool.

The statement continued by saying: "The benefit of this type of girl-centered environment has been well-documented by educators, scholars, and other girl- and youth-serving organizations, as well as Girl Scouts themselves". It's a huge part of what my troop does - from caroling in the nursing home to donating food to the Williamstown food pantry as younger girls to completing more complex projects as they grew more mature. If convicted, they could be sentenced to one to seven years in prison. They also presented the bench at a WES School Board meeting where they spoke to a room of adults on camera; they were nervous but did great. "Given our history, as a courtesy, they could have let us know". Every month they collect non-perishable food and donate it to help the North Adams E3 program's Little Free Food Pantry on River Street. They have cookies, too.

Trump sends signal with Corker attack - Source Thehill
Corker had been an ally and personal friend to the president before they developed a public feud on social media. On Oct. 9, Corker stated that Trump had intentionally made inaccurate statements on a regular basis.

They're pretty awesome kids, and it has been a privilege to watch them grow from tiny little Daisies to proud and strong Cadette Girl Scouts. The letter also questioned the Boy Scouts' ability to achieve the same result with girls as boys given the Boy Scouts' plan appears to simply take their current program tailored to grooming boys to be leaders and apply it to girls.

"If they allow girls in this group, I will drop out of Scouts completely", Gremel said. A program for older girls will be created by 2019.

As I noted back in May, "The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod severed its ties with scouting in 2015, and Franklin Graham, the influential evangelical pastor, reacted to the news of the Mormon decision by writing that "all churches" should 'pull out of the Boy Scouts organization completely.'" That suggests that the BSA, which has long enjoyed the backing churches, has been hurt by their new socially progressive policies. There's nothing wrong with having an organization for boys and an organization for girls. These girls are a force to be reckoned with, and they are changing the world.

Speaking as someone who has kept his Order of the Arrow sash for almost 30 years, the Boy Scouts of America lost my almost all of my remaining respect today.

North Korean hackers 'stole US-South Korea war plans'
In a pair of tweets sent Saturday afternoon, Trump said past agreements with North Korea have all been violated. Late last month the USA flew B-1Bs over worldwide waters close to North Korea's east coast.
