CUB SCOUTS from Hampstead Pack 790 raced 12 homemade model sailboats at Cascade Lake on Sunday.As during the America's Cup, creative use of wind power determined the winners. In the case of the Cub Scout Regatta, however, the wind was man-made; each boy blew against the stiff sail of his boat.Typically, a Scout regatta takes place on rain gutters filled with water, enabling the boys to better guide the model sailboats. During Sunday's race, however, Ed Cross, den leader and race organizer, sent both boy and boat into the lake.

County officials raised concerns yesterday about the parking lot at Cascade Lake during their review of the owner's plans for an expansion to the popular recreation area that draws as many as 1,400 people each day during the summer. County planners said they would need to see plans for a parking lot with clearly marked spots and an all-weather surface, meaning it must be paved or covered with crushed rock, before site plans can be submitted to the county planning commission. The commission decides whether a project will be allowed to move forward.
