It’s back.  Yes, USSSP is offering an Internet Patch for Scouts.  The internet is such a huge part of most of our lives.  As a matter of fact, it is the only way to get a copy of the Bugle : )  USSSP offers an internet patch that can be earned by Cub Scouts after  fulfilling the requirements  which can be  found at the link below. http://usscouts.org/internetscoutpatch.asp

This month I aplologize to you for being so late in getting the Bugle out.  For the last month or so, I have been totally exhausted, and have slept more than anything, except to go to work.  Yes, I have been to the doctor, and for the most part all is well with me, so no need to worry about me.  In December, I am taking off a few days from work, and will catch up on much needed rest, and hopefully get some energy back at that time.  But if the truth be known, I am getting older : ).

The requirements are available in pdf, HTML and Word.

Recently at work we had in a group of Tiger Cubs.  What the Tigers did at our Thrifty Nickel would be a great idea for your own pack newspaper.

We had them design their own ads for the favorite place to shop.  Catherine our graphic artist printed off some graphics for the Tigers to choose from..  After we cut the ads out for the boys they designed their own 2x2 inch ads.  At our paper, we have a fun page for our readers.  Every week there is a crossword puzzle, recipe and other fun ideas or games to play.  In our 12/29 issue we placed the actual ads done by the Tigers on our fun page.  I am very proud to work for the Thrifty Nickel here in Huntsville for it is a paper that truly gives back to the members of our community.

I am LOOKING for Earl Bateman, in Canada.  If anyone knows him, please have Earl contact me at cmr1954@usscouts.org or cmr1954@knology.com

Be sure and check out our start page where there is information about earning “Say Yes to Reading Program”.  The Cubs have until DEC. 31, 2001 to earn this patch.
