Irma Lemus MAGNOLIA PARK -- Ten Burbank boys received The Arrow of Light Award, the highest honor a Cub Scout can earn, during a ceremony at Magnolia Park United Methodist Church. The boys, who were honored Thursday, had to earn at least eight activity badges to be eligible for the award, said Steve Eisinger, Cubmaster for Cub Scout Pack 201. Eisinger said many of the boys worked for nearly five years to be eligible for the award. The accomplishment also marked the boys' transition into the Boy Scouts, he said.

Laura Sturza BURBANK VILLAGE -- Making a commitment to studying dance as often as five days a week is no small feat. But the six children from the Boys and Girls Club auditioning for a scholarship at the Media Dance Arts Centre Saturday knew they would have to be up to the challenge. The school and its Media City Ballet Company look to turn Burbank's attention to dance, an art form Director Natasha Middleton says has been missing from the city's cultural mix. Middleton auditioned six girls, none with prior dance experience.

Laura Sturza Kelly Higgins was among customers leaving Sportmart who were met by Boy Scouts eager to wrap her freshly purchased gifts. "I'd love something wrapped," said Higgins, who is the mother of two Girl Scouts. With that, the scout/parent teams set to putting boxes and paper around the holiday items in a technique demonstrated by 11-year-old Geoff Tyndall that involved "neatly folding and taping" the packages. Boy Scouts are out in force to raise funds for camping events, like a trip to Fresno's Camp Chawanakee, which 11-year-old Jonathan Elliot said featured favorite activities such as kayaking and knot-tying contests.

Mayor's support of Boy Scouts misplaced I was disappointed to see Burbank Mayor Todd Campbell pictured on the front page of the Burbank Leader participating in a ceremony with four Boy Scouts ("Scouts help prevent fires," Oct. 4). The legal issues that have challenged the Boy Scouts of America in recent years drew nationwide attention to the fact that the organization discriminates against homosexuals and those who do not profess a belief in God. Although this may not be the position of the four young men who worked so hard on their project, nevertheless, by making an appearance, the mayor was supporting the actions of a group that discriminates against many of the people in our community.
