Information requested on former Scout camp

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I am a retired professional scouter from the Bucks County Council in Doylestown.

I am attempting to write a book on Pennsylvania Council Boy Scout camps.

I am trying to find out any information I can on Camp John M. Phillips that was operated by the Lawrence County Council between the years of 1926 and 1935.

Any information would be appreciated.

I am also trying to obtain a patch from that camp.

I am grateful for any information anyone can supply me with.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
