Tim Tschepl and his dad, Steve, are seen above, taking a short break between repainting the lightpoles on Lexington's Square. Tim is working to earn his Eagle Scout designation. Tim Tschepl, assisted by his dad, Steve, was busy painting all the light poles and benches on the Lexington Square last Wednesday afternoon. He has also power washed all the concrete and brickwork around the Square.

Tim is finishing up the requirements for becoming an Eagle Scout and that is why he is volunteering to help spruce up the Square. He is a member of Lexington's Troop 142 which is sponsored by Immanuel Lutheran Church in Giddings. Nathan Vecera is the Scout Master.

The rains slowed down Tim's work on the project of beautifying the Square, so his dad stepped in for the finishing up. Tim rounded up all the paint and supplies needed and recruited his assistants. Once he has finished, Tim will have 90 days in which to complete his project report, which then becomes a "How To" manual for future scouts.

Tim turned 18 on Saturday, which ends his status as a Boy Scout. He will stay with the troop through the summer as an Assistant Scout Master. He will graduate in May as one of the top 10 in his class.

He has applied for a Navy scholarship and hopes to attend either UT, Texas A&M, LSU, Colorado, or Florida.

Following graduation, Tim hopes to work in Naval Intelligence, or the CIA, ultimately going into politics.
