When the Magnolia Park United Methodist Church needed help paying for its community bus, Daniel Etter’s family donated money from his grandfather’s funeral to help them buy the vehicle used for field trips. The charity of Daniel’s family has proven to extend through the generations, as the Boy Scout is working to repair the 1973 Dodge Carpenter and donate it to the American Indian Children’s Hunger Fund. The $6,000 endeavor is Daniel’s Eagle Project, the last step in his Boy Scout career in order to obtain the position of an Eagle Scout.

Comparison to the KKK was uncalled for I was disappointed to see that the Rev. Damon Vix lacked the vision to recognize that his rant perpetuates the very discrimination that he was speaking out against ("Mayor's support of Boy Scouts misplaced," Mailbag, Saturday). He was, however, correct about the fact that the Boy Scouts are an "expressive association." So, if I read his commentary right, this puts the Boy Scouts in the same sphere as the Ku Klux Klan? From its inception, the Boy Scouts has had a core belief in God — as evidenced in the Scout Oath and Law reference, "Duty to God" and "reverence" respectively.

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.

With a little help from Smokey Bear, Eagle Scout candidates and Burbank city officials dedicated fire-danger signs on Tuesday at Fire Station 16. Four Eagle Scout candidates from Troop 209 took on the challenge of building the signs, which rate the risk of fire in an area, for their Eagle Scout project. The Scouts built the signs to mark the anniversary of last year's Harvard Incident Fire, which in October burned more than 1,100 acres in the Verdugo Mountains above Burbank.
