I know my story is not unique, but that is all the more reason to tell it. I grew up in the Boy Scouts of America and from the time I was a small child my mother was the Den Leader of our Cub Scout troop until I went off to college, and I was proud to have earned my Eagle Scout badge. Between the weekly meetings, monthly campouts, annual summer camps, ski trips and canoe trips, the time and energy that I dedicated to the organization is astounding. That dedication is matched only by the leadership experience, confidence and character that I gained through my relationship with scouting.

The hexagonal bench, surrounding a Brazilian pepper tree, is a recent addition to the playground area. Jamie Kline, 14, built the bench as the final project in his ascension to the ranks of Eagle Scout.

Tony Altobelli For those out there looking for either a positive role model, a special influence, someone to talk to or just simply a groovy dance partner, look no further than Jim Scott. "Recently, I was over at Victoria School teaching kids how to dance and I was on television," Scott said proudly. "Good, wholesome dancing is a lost art. When Chubby Checker came on the scene teaching people how to twist, proper dancing went out the window." Scott, 75, a fan and supporter of Estancia High athletics for over 30 years, watched his four kids attend high school there (Jim's youngest son, Tom, died in 1977 after being hit by a car)

But nature didn't cooperate with Costa Mesa's Boy Scout Troop 711 last month during the first weekend of its ongoing car wash fundraiser. Cars trickled into the Burger King Parking lot on Harbor Boulevard slowly on that Saturday in October, and rain forced the organizers to cut short the event the following day. Business was better on this sunny November Saturday.
