NEIGHBORS

Scouting is one of the best ways for girls and boys to learn about the joy of achieving difficult goals.

As they earn their way through the various levels of Scouting, they also learn self-respect by facing and overcoming the many challenges that Scouting offers.

At the Blue & Gold Banquet, held Feb. 22 by Cub Scout Pack 615, four Scouts from the Webelos Bison Den were awarded the Arrow of Light, Cub Scouting's highest award. To achieve the Arrow of Light award, each Scout had to earn required activity badges.

At the end of the ceremonies, all four were bridged into area Boy Scout troops.

The Arrow of Light award was presented to:

Tommy Farley, Spencer Lean and Brian Wolvovsky, who will be bridging into Boy Scout Troop 613; and, Benjamin Schwartz, who will be bridging into Boy Scout Troop 874.

A number of Wolf Den Cub Scouts also were awarded Bear Badges at the banquet.

Moving up to Bear Den Cub Scouts were: Ryan Farley, Adam Fisch, Ryan Pearson, Jason Pine, Matt Rothwell, Ben Rubin, Joshua Sturgill and Jack Tepe.

The recent swastika incident at Uniphoto Labs Inc. in Harper's Choice Village Center has drawn the ire and condemnation of the Columbia community.

A disgusted Charles I. Ecker, Howard County executive, has angrily denounced the hate crime and has stated that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated.

Shortly after the incident, Vicki Cox of the Howard County Office of Public Information announced that a reward of $300 will be paid to anyone with information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for painting the swastikas on the display windows of Uniphoto Labs.

If you have information, call the Howard County Police Department at 313-3700.
