The reopening of about 98,000 acres of the forest’s northern, southern and eastern areas will offer recreational opportunities including hiking, picnicking and camping to the public in time for the Memorial Day weekend. Marty DumpisÖ, the Angeles National Forest’s deputy supervisor, said it’s been strange not seeing the general public in the forest for nearly two years, since the disastrous fire ravaged 250 square miles, destroying structures and taking the lives of two firefighters.

On Sunday during a ceremony at Lanterman Auditorium, 40 local Girl Scouts received the Gold Award, the highest honor awarded in the Girl Scout program. For many of the teens it was the pinnacle of community service that began when they first put on their Daisy Scout blue apron as a kindergartner. To receive the Gold Award, girls must choose a philanthropic project that fulfills the need within their community, rather global or local, and creates a change. They must plan the project, contact the agency or agencies involved and follow through with logistics and organization.
