Eagle Scout Stabbed By Berserk Mom June 6, 2010

Timothy Hinkle became Louisa County’s newest Eagle on June 5th. The crazy woman sticking the pins in his chest is his mother, the Beautiful and Sometimes Silly One. She told investigators that the multitude of badges on his shirt had caused her to confuse him with a bulletin board.

More seriously, Timothy is the latest in a long line of Eagle Scouts from Louisa County that stretches back over nearly the entire 100 history of the Boy Scouts of America.

To earn the rank of Eagle, a scout must master basic first aid and outdoor skills, complete at least 21 Merit Badges, take a leadership role within his troop, and complete an approved service project. He must also demonstrate his commitment to the values codified in the scout oath, law, and motto.

Only two percent of all scouts become Eagles. Tim is the fourth boy to receive his Eagle under the guidance of Scoutmaster John Dale of Troop 67 out of Morning Sun, Iowa. In the last ten years, Louisa County’s four troops have produced more than a dozen Eagles–an enviable record of accomplishment.
