Scouts pay tribute

-A A +A

   Boy Scouts of America scout Austin Ross needed a project to achieve his next rank. After mulling over a few ideas, he decided upon a flagpole for the yard at First United Methodist Church in Chiefland.
   Several businesses and groups in the area, as well as fellow scouts, helped Austin with the project, which included the construction of a flagpole and a concrete base.
   A commemorative plaque, honoring WWII Merchant Marine Seaman Robert H. Ross (Austin's grandfather), was fastened to the flag's pedestal.
   The local VFW donated the flag, presented by Kary Colson.
