The members of Troop 33014 recently met with local writers Karen Grandados and Julia Park Tracey to discuss various types of writing to earn their Scribe Badge. The girls learned about poetry and crafted haikus and acrostic poems; they wrote short stories, short news articles and letters to the editor. What follows are their letters to the editor. Thank you for your consideration.

Barbara Ann Caulfield, Scout Leader


I am writing to you about the gum on the streets. This bothers me because it looks trashy and not fun to get on your shoes. For example, on Park Street, there is a lot of gum on the sidewalk. This could be fixed by hiring people to power wash the street. All in all, I am bothered by the gum on the sidewalk.

My opinion is about people cutting down trees. I think there should be a change to this. We can solve this problem by not cutting down the nice trees, like on Park Street where the trees were cut down for no reason.
