While kayaking at Chain O' Lakes State Park in northern Indiana, I followed a butterfly as she led the way through the channels. Then suddenly, she landed on the water, and with the weight of the water on her tiny wings, she was not able to lift herself up to fly. She called to my spirit for help.

Paddling over to her, I scooped her up in the palm of my hand and brought her into the kayak with me. She perched on a life vest, and I paddled out of the channel into...

This byte of knowledge focuses on Apple's latest edition of their operating system Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar. Over the past year and a half Apple's Mac OS X has evolved from a great innovation to a reality of full productivity, simplicity and compatibility.

Just by looking at the box and Cds you see a wild Jaguar skin print on the box. This I see as a symbol of Apple's dedication to design and graphics. After updating my system to 10.2 I noticed speed improvements in the...

I'm disappointed in that I don't have a lot of information coming in from area Scout troops or packs. Send me your advancements and where you went on your monthly outings. Let me know what your leaders are planning and where and when you meet in case someone is interested in joining your unit. In the meantime I'll report what I have. We'll also publish pictures of your unit as space permits.

Jerry Lloyd, Scoutmaster of Troop 38 and Jim Fox, Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 38 have informed...

Venus, the Moon and a Star Named Spica

I wonder what 'twill all be like in 1999;
And how we'll get from here to there in 1999.
Man's legs don't take him very far;
Instead, he goes by motor car.
But he'll be reaching for a star, in 1999.


I wonder what we'll find to do in 1999;
Or if we'll need to work at all, in 1999.
Man's hands, his brains, are obsolete;
Computers do the job complete;
No wash, just wear, will keep us neat, in 1999.


I wonder, will the world still stand, in 1999.
Or will the Millenium bring us peace, in 1999.
As sure...
