I know my story is not unique, but that is all the more reason to tell it. I grew up in the Boy Scouts of America and from the time I was a small child my mother was the Den Leader of our Cub Scout troop until I went off to college, and I was proud to have earned my Eagle Scout badge. Between the weekly meetings, monthly campouts, annual summer camps, ski trips and canoe trips, the time and energy that I dedicated to the organization is astounding. That dedication is matched only by the leadership experience, confidence and character that I gained through my relationship with scouting.

Three wooden cars raced down a 30-foot track at blinding speeds, blending into a blur of color, surrounded by the excited cheers of the Laguna Beach Cub Scouts. They raced, again and again, car after car, cheering the names of winners. The Pinewood Derby, which drew about 70 spectators to the Laguna Presbyterian Church on Tuesday night, has been held annually since 1953 and involves all levels of the Cub Scouts, from the littlest Tigers to the tallest Webelos. "The derby is a great opportunity for the kids to create, learn, spend quality time with their parents who help them, and enjoy recognition for their efforts," Cub Master John Hovanesian said.

The jawbone of the blue whale is the largest such bone on earth, yet it is also very fragile. That is what drove 14-year-old Matthew Hulley to embark on a major project to protect a set of bones at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. After a regular family trip to the center, Matthew noticed that what first looked like slabs of concrete and a piece of driftwood lying against a chain link fence were actually a blue whale’s vertebrates and jaw bone. It was in that moment the Aliso Viejo middle school student decided to create a whale bone exhibit for the center as his Eagle Scout Project.
