Boy Scouts Face NIdaho Backlash

Scout program leaders in North Idaho are pleading constituents not to cut off support for the Boy Scouts out of opposition to the Camp Easton land swap. Officials with the Old Mission District, which oversees scouting programs in Kootenai, Shoshone and Benewah counties, say they have been contacted by a high number of volunteers and financial donors threatening to sever ties with the district if the proposed exchange goes through. "Some of our biggest contributors are saying, 'We're not going to be associated with scouting anymore,'" said district Chairman Ladd Livingston. Some have made significant donations to fund Camp Easton infrastructure, Livingston explained, with the understanding that the improvements would be used at that location permanently/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press.
