THELMA MAY BE ONE OF the least likely names you'd expect to belong to the scoutmaster of a Boy Scout troop.But Thelma Furlong, the first female scoutmaster in the Scouts' Capital District, is part of a new breed of Scout leaders.Besides Furlong, whose district includes the southern and western parts of Anne Arundel County, the state has no more than five female scoutmasters.Granted, there have always been women Cub pack leaders. That's how Furlong started her Boy Scout career.But, when it comes to teaching the rugged, big-guy stuff, the role is traditionally left to men."

BOY SCOUTING is my avocation," said Linthicum resident James P. Dunne Jr. In his youth, he was a Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Explorer and earned Eagle rank. As an adult, he has served in many areas of the Scouting program.When his three sons were in Cub Scouts, he was Cubmaster of Pack 845 and Pack 447. He has been a Scoutmaster three times for three troops (869, 550, and 216).But, it is Boy Scout Troop 216, the one with which he is associated now, that possibly gives him the greatest satisfaction.

When my brother, Frank, and I were growing up in Baltimore City on South Calhoun Street we were both charter members of the Southwestern Police Boys Club on the third floor of the police station at Pratt and Calhoun streets. The club was run by full-time policemen and had an indoor basketball court, boxing ring, pool tables, ping-pong tables, a woodworking shop, a Boy Scout troop and a TV room. I believe it was open six days a week and closed about 9 p.m. In the summer, we would go away to Camp Ritchie for one or two weeks.

The Boy Scouts of America has lifted its ban on gay boys being full participants in their programs ("Scouts lift ban on gay youths," May 24). Much of the news has centered in the backlash from "faith-based organizations" which sponsor Boy Scout troops. Churches, in particular, are named as those opposing this change and withdrawing their sponsorship. The Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore is proud to sponsor Troop 35, a historical and successful program of the Boy Scouts of America with an impressive record of Eagle Scouts.

This week my kids will be packing for summer camp with their Boy Scout troop. For my 15-year-old, it's a familiar routine. In fact, he complains he'll be bored because he's seen and done it all before. For the 11-year-old, it's a different story. This will be the first time he has spent an entire week away from home and he's nervous. He's always been rather ambivalent about outdoor camping. He doesn't like bugs, especially spiders. Now he knows he'll have to spend a week sleeping in a tent.

I now fell much safer knowing that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations authorities have captured the flea market gang that was threatening our country with phony merchandise ("Counterfeits long suspected at market," April 24). It seems to me that they could have deputized a Boy Scout troop led by a couple crossing guards to apprehend these desperadoes while homeland security folks were stopping the daily flood of illegal immigrants, including terrorists, from entering the country.
