Houston Scouts help get ill leader to safety

A group of Houston Boy Scouts made heroic efforts to carry their Scoutmaster down a mountain after he became seriously ill in the Colorado wilderness, officials said.
Donald Leever, 58, a Houston dentist, remains in fair condition at Mercy Regional Medical Center in Durango, Colo., after a dozen Boy Scouts from Troop 642 based at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church carried him in a makeshift basket out of the Weminuche Wilderness Area.
“Certainly, this individual's condition warranted quick action,” Knowlton said of the Scoutmaster's illness. “I believe they used their training and came together as a group of people and a group of Scouts and started making their best efforts to help their leader.”
The troop has a long history, having existed for more than 52 years and has about 75 to 125 Scouts per year. More than 400 boys have achieved the rank of Eagle in Troop 642 — one of the highest numbers in the nation, according to the troop's Web site.
Poisoned chalice? Swine flu hits church wine
LONDON, England (CNN) -- The archbishops of Canterbury and York are recommending that churches stop sharing the chalice at communion over swine flu fears, the Church of England said Thursday.
The archbishops wrote a letter to all Church of England bishops with the recommendation. It follows government advice not to share "common vessels" for food or drink so as not to spread the virus.
In the Anglican Church, worshippers commonly drink from the same chalice during communion. The chalice is wiped before the next person drinks from it.
For churches that still wish to offer both bread and wine, the archbishops recommend the priest dip communion wafers in the chalice before handing them out to those taking communion.
"The Department of Health have recently advised us that 'in a pandemic it makes good sense to take precautions to limit the spread of disease by not sharing common vessels for food and drink,'" the archbishops write in the letter.
