But to my very busy weekend, a month ago, My sons Boy Scout Trailer was stolen it was next to the scout hut at the back of the Charter organization(Church) parking lot. Somebody went on a Saturday night and stole it. We have been telling people that the person that stole it probably was never a scout and never was exposed to the positive virtues of being a scout. I and many others were very angry about it. But we try to listen to the better angels of our nature and "forgive" them. I do try, but I am a human being and it can be hard.
We got put on the local news, The outpouring from the community was overwhelmingly positive.

On a personal note, I DID buy some .22 ammo there, it was a special shipment for the grand opening, So for the moment, there was ammo available, but soon they will be like the others, if you find any at all, you will be lucky. I will be glad when the supply catches up with the demand.
"(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend" is a cowboy-styled country/western song written in 1948 by noted American songwriter, Stan Jones. A number of versions were crossover hits on the pop charts in 1949. The ASCAP database lists the song as "Riders in the Sky" (title code 480028324), but the title has been written as "Ghost Riders", "Ghost Riders in the Sky", and "A Cowboy Legend".
The song tells a folk tale of a cowboy who has a vision of red-eyed, steel-hooved cattle thundering across the sky, being chased by the spirits of damned cowboys. One warns him that if he does not change his ways, he will be doomed to join them, forever "trying to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies". Jones said that he had been told the story when he was 12 years old by an old cowboy friend. The story resembles the northern European mythic Wild Hunt.
More than 50 performers have recorded versions of the song. Charting versions were recorded by The Outlaws, Vaughn Monroe ("Riders in the Sky" with orchestra and vocal quartet), which topped the Billboard magazine charts, by Bing Crosby (with the Ken Darby Singers), Frankie Laine, Burl Ives (two different versions), Marty Robbins, The Ramrods and Johnny Cash. Other recordings were made by Eddy Arnold, Peggy Lee (with the Jud Conlon Singers) and Spike Jones and his City Slickers. Gene Autry sang it in the 1949 movie, "Riders in the Sky." Jones himself recorded it for his 1957 album "Creakin' Leather." Children of Bodom, Impaled Nazarene and Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have also made covers.
The melody is based on the song "When Johnny Comes Marching Home." According to Robby Krieger, it inspired the classic Doors song "Riders on the Storm."
The song was also the inspiration for the Marvel Comics Western character "Ghost Rider" later renamed Phantom Rider (not to be confused with the later character named "Ghost Rider.")
The song may have also been the inspiration for the REO Speedwagon song Ridin' The Storm Out.
The chorus lines of this song are and have been since the 1960s a terrace song of the Aston Villa Football Club of England. The words have been modified to include the line "Holte Enders in the Sky," a reference to the occupants of the vast stand behind the goal at the southern end of the Villa Park stadium.
The song is also referenced in the Def Leppard song Foolin', with the line "On and on, we rode the storm".
