Six Lincoln Elementary School first graders, all members of Cub Scout Pack 310, visited the offices of the Crescenta Valley Sun last Monday to learn about communications. Cub Scouts in attendance were Brendan Alcalde, Riley Duarte, Kyle Lange, Joo Sang Lee, John Nunes and Matthew Riner. Accompanying adults were Den Leader Mario Alcalde, Ga Young Park and Won Lee. The visit helped fulfill requirements so the youngsters can advance to the Wolf rank. The group was attentive as they watched the Valley Sun's Amanda Stevens accept a classified advertisement over the telephone, listened to display advertising sales representative Larrie Rosenfeld talk about why businesses advertise in a newspaper, learned the ins and outs of reporting sports stories from sports editor Ralph Saenz, and were interviewed by city editor Jennifer Berry for this article.

Four cars sat idling atop the ramp. Three were without drivers, but one had a Lego man glued in, hands in the air like he was riding a roller coaster. And then they were off — the cars swooped down the 8-foot ramp and across the 40-foot track in about five seconds at the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby race Saturday morning. “It is something we have every year, and it’s one of the Scouts’ favorite things,” said Greg Schowengerdt, assistant cub master.

Currently, he volunteers as vice president in charge of programs for the Verdugo Hills Council in Glendale. There is only one part missing from Kelsey’s life of Scouting activities. He was never an Eagle Scout.
