Letter to the editor: Doug Weimer lives by Scout Oath

The Boy Scout Oath and Law have been lived by over 2 million young people who have become Eagle Scouts since the founding of the Boy Scouts of America in 1910. Doug Weimer, running for Hempfield Township supervisor, became an Eagle Scout and continues to live by the principles of the Scout Oath — duty to God, country and self.

Weimer lives by the Scout motto of “Be Prepared” and the Scout Law (a scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent) in his everyday life as a community leader and family man.

It is a pleasure to know Weimer as a merit badge counselor and township leader who has always been willing to assist scouts to achieve their Eagle award with project ideas which benefit our community. I am proud to continue supporting Weimer for Hempfield Township supervisor.

Jay Anderson


The writer is district vice chair of the Laurel Hills District of the Westmoreland-Fayette Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
