The newly formed Iola Explorer Scout Post 75 held its first organization meeting last week, which got the post chartered by the Quivira Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The post is sponsored by local law enforcement agencies under a statewide program initiated by Attorney General Vern Miller. Young persons, boys or girls, who are interested in law enforcement will get an inside look at actual police-sheriff procedures through the Explorer Scout program. Advisors of the scout group are Sheriff Glen Cooper, Police Chief Everett Shepherd, Deputy Ivan Van Houden, the Rev. Bill Deckinger, Highway Patrolman Mark Westgate, Undersheriff Gary Garver, Leslie Andres and Bill West.
