    WEYAUWEGA, Wis. -- Gary Hirte, a high school scholar, star athlete and Eagle Scout whose name seemed to be in the local paper all the time, is accused of committing murder--not for money or revenge, but just to see if he could get away with it.

    THE CITY of San Diego recently announced a whopping gift of taxpayer dollars to the American Civil Liberties Union. With budgets tight up and down California, San Diego citizens might have been surprised to learn there was so much extra cash lying around city hall. The payoff is part of the city council’s shameful cave-in to the ACLU’s lawsuit that aims to kick the Boy Scouts off of public parkland in San Diego.

His goal at the time was simply to polish off his Eagle Scout requirements. Looks like the project passed muster.</p>
