Another horrible blight on Long Beach. A feed trough for local politicians and a great harm to LongRead More Beach's youth. From my experiences with this place and with the families it has served, the people here have done far more harm than good, all at the expense of Long Beach kids, while lining their pockets to the tune of millions in tax dollars. The sooner this band of vipers is out of here, the better for Long Beach.

Long Beach is one of the few places where the scum is so rotten that it sells out the community'sRead More young. REACH is one step above the west end bar owners who serve up cocaine to 17-year-olds. This place pushes drugs on them. All for a buck. If there were real men and real women in this town, their $350,000-year scumbag director would have been lynched a long time ago.

Long Beach is the only community that sells its kids for a buck. REACH is one step below the westRead More end bar owners who sell cocaine to 17-year-olds. Instead, REACH pushes drugs and tells the teens not to tell their parents. All for a buck. If the parents find out and object, standing in the way of their money, they send the cops to their house. If Long Beach had any real men or women left it in, the $350,000 per year scumbag director of this self-serving "charity" would have been run out of town years ago. One attempt by its privileged leaders to push Long Beach back into the 1970's. Sorry if they had to hook your kids on drugs. Had to be done.

as a retired teacher, it warms my heart to know that perhaps, a few less children will commitRead More suicide because they are different and are shunned by others. those who have no feelings for these kids never witnessed what other kids (straight kids, i might add), did to them with lots of impunity. thank you b.s.a. now, keep going and finish the job.

My guess is that the reason this is such a devisive issue for the BSA has to do with the usual redRead More state/ blue state divide on social issues and the extent to which modern thinking upsets religious conservatives. The BSA demographics likely give significant influence to the Midwest and South where the BSA is more popular. Imagine, the compromise is to allow gay scouts, but then tell them they are unworthy to be scout members or leaders when they turn 18. Were I gay, I'd want nothing to do with the BSA. And as a retired teacher, I can validate the statement by Jo-Anne regarding the tortures some gay students have had to endure, though, with credit given to today's enlightened youth, this treatment seems to be less common.

A good deed is a good deed, comments above notwithstanding. Money saved by a cash strapped city dueRead More to volunteer efforts is a good thing, no? I can understand why some would not join or support this organization, but the work done by these volunteers is valuable and deeply appreciated by this resident. The people who planted the flowers some weeks ago, the clean up of the canals that Surfrider people did, this, all great stuff. Thank you

While I understand that some people may be put off by Sustainable's agenda, a good deed is a goodRead More deed. And volunteers doing important work to help a cash strapped City, also good, no? This resident is thankful to all those volunteers who did the plantings a couple of weeks ago, the Surfrider guys who cleaned the canals, and yesterday's crew for the good deeds they have done. THANK YOU!
