Paradise council passes scout’s Eagle project in the nick of time

PARADISE–Colton Wuetherich has been pushing his luck to complete his Eagle project on time, with his 18th birthday just a week away. He approached the Paradise Town Council Wednesday, asking to have his Eagle project passed off even though it is only half complete.

Wuetherich and Matt Forbes have been working on their Eagle project for the past few weeks. They are supposed to fix up an old drinking fountain near the Cracker Barrel in Paradise and make it usable for the public again.

“We kind of split it up so that I would do the plumbing and concrete,” said Wuetherich. “Matt is going to do the bricks. I have my part all done and I’m still going to help Matt with putting the bricks on it but we came here today to see if you can pass me off on mine. My birthday is next Saturday.”

The Eagle project must be completed by a young man’s 18th birthday or he cannot move on to the next rank of Eagle Scout.

Mayor Leland Howlett agreed to pass off Wuetherich’s Eagle project since he had finished his part. With it nearly finished, the two young men expect the drinking fountain to be fully functional by Saturday, Nov. 27.
