Tim and Suzanne Wolf of Ahwatukee announced that their son, Alex, 13, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor in the Boy Scouts of America. Wolf began scouting as a Cub Scout with Pack 879 at Kyrene de los Cerritos Elementary and earned his Arrow of Light, the highest rank in Cub Scouting, when he was 10. He then bridged into Boy Scout Troop 14, which meets at Esperanza Lutheran Church. His Eagle Project consisted of building a wall within the offices of The 100 Club in order to create a therapy room for police officers and firefighters to meet with counselors.

The advertisements haven’t divulged much about the film’s plot or characters.

That’s still more than enough to make any fan boy swoon like a teenage girl watching “Twilight.”
Ahwatukee Troop 1685 has been together for six years and is made up of 13 girls, ages 11 and 12. This year the troop was challenged to create its own goals and projects.

The girls selected, organized and participated in the community events on their own with only subtle guidance from the troop leaders and parents.
