As an Eagle Scout candidate, Shane Bleicher Otto of Jim Thorpe worked hard to refurbish six bus stops in Penn Forest Township, repairing and painting roofs and doing other maintenance work. Along the way, the 12-year scout learned the skills and determination necessary to achieve life goals. On Thursday, Carbon County commissioners honored Shane, of Scout Troop 555, with a resolution.
