Johnson Lane Scouts camp at Twin Lakes

Cub Scout Pack No. 33 from Johnson Lane went on a wonderful camping trip to Twin Lakes out of Bridgeport, Calif. Camp hosts are Tom and Maddi Paulsen at the Craggs part of Twin Lakes. If you haven't camped up there, it is a very relaxing place to stay. I haven't yet been in a tent, but we've spent lots of summers there and I can't say enough good things about this camping area.

Twenty-six boys, 15 siblings and 39 adults showed up for the trip. This sounds like so much fun. Some caught trout out of Robinson Creek and most hiked up to the Horseshoe Falls waterfall at upper Twin Lakes. Then they tie-dyed T-shirts that even glowed in the dark. I wonder how that works.

The kids rode bicycles, played games and roasted marshmallows and, of course, made s'mores by the campfire. It sounds like they had a great camping experience " no bears and only a few deer bugging them for scraps of food and, best of all, no mosquitoes.

If you would like to join the Cub Scouts in the Johnson Lane area, you can call Malia Taylor at 267-0545. Joining Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts can be really rewarding and they can always use more parents to volunteer.


Did you hear "boom, boom, boom" about 8:30 p.m. last Thursday? Turns out a neighbor at the end of Johnson Lane had buried ammunition in his yard. The bomb squad came out and dug it up with a tractor and took it out to the Johnson Lane jumps and blew it up.

Music teacher a hit at benefit for fire department

Heather Keuhner is the guitar heroes music teacher at Pinon Hills and Jacks Valley elementary schools. She played at the Sheridan Volunteer Fire Department benefit last Saturday night and was the only female in the Big Band, playing swing-type music. She sang a solo and was the best. Heather, you were great!

School is back in session again. Remember to watch for the buses and the kids who ride bikes.

Next week I am going to tell you all about one family's trip to Alaska and all of their outings. Be safe.
