Community Helps WWII Vet Get New Roof
February 07, 2019
Back in 2017, Hurricane Irma badly damaged the roof on 94-year-old Leo McLarney’s home in Palmetto Bay, Florida. The World War II veteran and survivor of Pearl Harbor had been living underneath a blue tarp since the storm, but after his story aired on local news recently, people in his community were happy to help him out.
McLarney’s story touched the hearts of many and donations started pouring in to get this elderly war vet a desperately needed new roof. The director of Miami-Dade’s long term disaster recovery group says McLarney has a new roof and they’re now working on replacing his water-damaged carpet and having his house painted. Don’t you love a happy ending?

Special Needs Man Becomes Eagle Scout At 61
February 07, 2019
He’s a bit older than the average Eagle Scout, but Doug Cuthbertson has finally earned the highest rank from the Boy Scouts of America. Doug is 61 and has special needs, and the organization allows those with special needs to continue working on the designation as adults.
Doug is part of Troops 33 and 117 in Swartz Creek, Michigan, which include about 20 scouts with special needs and 90% of them live in assisted living homes. Their scouting meetings and events are sometimes the only activities that get them out of the house once a week. But Doug, who has lived in an assisted living home is lucky enough to have had a job at a local McDonald’s for 27 years and he’s also active in his church.
This Eagle Scout is one of around 100,000 special needs people who have participated in Boy Scouts since the organization began way back in 1910. It’s not easy to achieve the rank, but Doug has what it takes.
