: Can't you call Brian Beeman and tell him we don't own it?

I stopped at both the Beacon office to talk to Herman, and the city hall to talk to Beemann on Monday morning. Both have been told that the Scout troop does not own the display. (I also sent an email to WCCO after their video was broadcast on the 6:00 news.)

I did find out that the troop did assist in setting up the display for several years when Ben K was a member of the troop. His dad had volunteered to set it up and Ben called a few Scouts each year to help out. After Ben left the Girl Scouts took over the job.

The thing that tees me off is that Beemann told the city council that the Boy Scouts were contacted about the change of location for the display when in fact no one had talked to anyone currently involved with the troop. Seems to me that we have a city administrator who is too lazy to make a couple phone calls and does not mind giving false information to the city council.
