St. Ann's Cub Scout Pack 50 has its money back, more than two years after the father of a scout took hundreds of dollars in proceeds from their Christmas 2001 fund-raiser.
Tina Muncie, a pack mother, said she got a Turkey Hill Minit Market money order in the mail Friday for $145. She forwarded it to the pack treasurer before noon, she said.
The amount won't be enough to get the scouts to the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York City -- their original goal -- but it's a start, Mrs. Muncie said.
William Ferrell, 43, of Taylor, pleaded guilty to theft last week in Lackawanna County Court. He was accused of stealing about $845 from the Scouts and from Mickman Brothers of Ham Lake, Minn., which supplied the Scouts with Christmas wreaths to sell as a fund-raiser.
Mr. Ferrell was also to pay the Scouts' outstanding bill at Mickman Brothers, estimated at $500 to $700. A woman who answered the phone there Friday said the Scout bill -- once written off as bad debt -- has been settled in full.
What kind of useless scum would volunteer be a scout leader so as to get his hands on the young boys to molest them?
AND what kind of useless scum would defend their right to do that? I know the answer to this one.... the ACLU!
