Onc of my worst nightmares is that I will be the last Sea Scout. I
believe I can rest easy now that I know my ship will soon go... long
Our slip is subsidized by public money. Our local Sea Scout Base sits on
county land for which we pay $1 per year. Under the rule of law, the
county should withdraw its support based on the prejudicial practices of
the Boy Scouts. They will, I'm sure, as soon as someone brings this
matter to the attention of our County Supervisors.
So when it comes to worrying about rules and losing charters, I think
that is a more immediate concern.
