5. Reading Boy Scout. Last week the selectmen commended Boy Scout Jacob Westerman for his fire hydrant locator Eagle Scout project. Working with town officials, Westerman raised money to buy 150 poles, used to find hydrants in heavy snow, prioritized where to place them and led a group of scouts to put them up.
