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


This month's Bugle is not what you are used to.We have been having mega problems with our system, and it has been pretty much hit or miss for me as I worked on it.Losing Bugles and restarting new ones.Yes, I need to get back-up copy into my vocabulary.Hopefully with the new year, we of little computer knowledge at this house will have everythingfixed.


Love ya all,
