Philip Canzian of Pine has achieved Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank awarded by the Boy Scouts of America.

Philip has been an active participant in scouts since 2006 when he joined St. Alexis' Cub Scouts Pack 956 as a first grade Tiger Scout. He bridged over to Boy Scouts in 2011 as one of the founding members of Aquinas Academy's Boy Scout Troop 596. The school was the benefactor of Philip's Eagle Scout project, which was completed in July and entailed installing a 100-foot gravel access path and drainage system to Aquinas's outdoor classroom (another Eagle Scout's project). The project spanned a six day period with the help of friends, family and fellow troop members all contributing over 240 work hours. The funding of the project came from direct donations from family, friends and local businesses.

Philip is now a senior at Vincentian Academy and plans to continue his involvement with scouts.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
