Searching for compromise on a divisive issue, the Boy Scouts of America is proposing to partially lift its long-standing exclusion of gays — allowing them as youth members but continuing to bar them as adult leaders.
On opposite sides of the world, the brother and sister sat transfixed before their computers, reading a stranger's account of long-ago secrets and deeply buried sins. The memo was just four pages long, about an incident in 1963 at a Boy Scout camp in New Jersey. A Scout executive had gotten drunk during an overnight outing, then was discovered gambling with a group of boys. But there was more.
Caught in an ideological crossfire, the Boy Scouts of America is retreating until May from a decision about whether to ease its policy of excluding gays. Whatever the organization eventually does, it's likely to anger major constituencies and worsen schisms within Scouting.

Travis Christopher, head of the Boy Scouts' Northern Lights Council, which includes troops in the Grand Forks area, said he hasn’t heard much feedback from troops yet. Troop sponsors, which include churches, have a lot of control over troop membership.
Again and again, decade after decade, an array of authorities — police chiefs, prosecutors, pastors and local Boy Scout leaders among them — quietly shielded scoutmasters and others accused of molesting children, a newly opened trove of confidential papers shows.
Travis Christopher will be the new scout executive and CEO for the boy scouts’ Northern Lights Council, which includes the Grand Forks region, starting Nov. 16, according to Council President Steve McLister Friday.
Matt Valenti chose a service project to win Eagle Scout status that will honor the country’s fallen soldiers in a graphic way. Valenti was busy Thursday in the National Guard armory in Grand Forks typing in the last of the names of the approximately 1,960 U.S. military personnel who have given their lives in Operation Enduring Freedom, the 10-year war in and near Afghanistan.
Myron Barnes didn’t expect to dedicate his life to the Boy Scouts when he applied for a summer job to be an aquatics director at a scout camp near Hibbing, Minn. But the three-month position opened the door to a lifelong career, and this month, Barnes retired after 36 years with the Boy Scouts.
Carolyn Truex watched a border collie sniff a patch of weeds early Tuesday along a riverbank near the spot where her 4-year-old great grandson was last seen a few days ago. She didn't know whether to feel relief or despair when it turned up nothing.
Boy Scouts of America will collect donated food for an annual food drive later this month. The 24th annual Scouting for Food Drive is being chaired this year by North Dakota First Lady Betsy Dalrymple.
