GOOD READ


Eugene Buchanan has a blunt, com- mon-sense message for parents and youth leaders: If we don’t want kids to become nature-averse screen potatoes—and possibly obese and unhealthy—it’s not enough to bark, “Get up off the couch and go outside.” Instead, get up and go with the kids, intro- ducing them to life-enhancing outdoor activities such as biking, snow sports, backpacking, fishing, and more. To help with this quest, Buchanan, a veteran journal- ist, recently published Outdoor Parents, Outdoor Kids: A Guide to Getting Your Kids Active in the Great Outdoors. And when he calls it a “guide,” he’s being modest; “A-through-Z idiot-proof training- wheels guide” is more like it. The book is stuffed with hands-on, been-there advice that leaders can use and pass along to parents. It spells out in close detail how to help youngsters do just about everything, from choosing between fish scales and wax on their skis to the pros and cons of using PowerBait in fly-fishing. For all his expertise, Buchanan writes like your pal, not your pro-


fessor, candidly confessing what he’s learned from both blunders and triumphs. Get this book and get those kids outdoors. Heliconia Press, $19.95; helipress.com.


Spirit of Service


The National Eagle Scout Association has established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award. It recognizes valuable service of an exceptional nature by a Scout to a religious institution, school, community, or other entity performed as part of the then-current requirements for earning the Eagle Scout Award. One national award winner is chosen from among four regional


award winners who are selected from local council winners. The recipient of the national award will receive a plaque, a silver Eagle knot device, and a cash award of $2,500 for the Scout’s future educational purposes or for the Scout to attend a national or international Scouting event or facility. The national award winner’s local council also will receive a $2,500 award. The first award went to Alex Griffith of Jarrettsville, Md., at the


BSA’s National Annual Meeting in May. The Scout, from Troop 809 in the Baltimore Area Council, raised nearly $63,000 and enlisted the aid of 634 volunteers from 23 states to build a playground in Krasnoyarsk, Russia.

GRILLING TIPS


Be prepared for summer camping and remember cookout:


• Sprinkle seasoning onto meat and press the spices in, then let stand for 15-30 minutes before cooking. This allows the seasoning to penetrate the meat, providing a


• When cooking chicken with the skin-on, be sure to rub


• When grilling steaks, remove from cooler and season 30 minutes before grilling. For best results, use steaks that are 1 to 1 ½-inches thick.


• Brush and lightly oil the grilling rack before placing the meat on the grill. This keeps the meat from sticking and cracking, preventing the loss of natural juices.


• Use tongs or a spatula. Do not use a fork because it will poke holes in the meat and allow the natural juices to spill out.


• Don’t forget to pack your favorite Fire Roasted™ grilling seasoning
