The Scout Law says a scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful â€¦
Scout Travis Schwendeman from Newdale exemplified being helpful as he taught two instructors, scouts and adult leaders how to crack a cow whip on Friday afternoon at the Rise Up 2013 Boy Scout Encampment near Firth.
â€śYou swing the whip one way, reverse it and crack it,â€ť Travis said. â€śThe crack [of the whip] does not happen because the whip hits the ground; itâ€™s more like wave action.
Record-breaking heat is in the forecast across the country and right here in East Idaho. The heat is hard on everyone, but for older adults who are particularly vulnerable to the dangers of heat, the extreme temperatures can become deadly. Excessive heat claims more lives than each year than tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and lightning combined.
Senior care companies take great care to ensure that their residents are safe and hydrated in extreme temperatures.
