NOREEN: Lamborn is AWOL, but a heroic Boy Scout isn't

Jordan Evans, 11, gets a hug from his grandmother Ann Parker after Evans received many honors from Boy Scout Troop 187 Monday night, Jan. 23, 2012, at the Calvary Worship Center. The awards were for his heroism stemming from an incident where Parker was injured when a tree branch fell on her head rendering her unconscious with a major gash in her scalp. He will also attend Report to the Nation, where he will travel to Washington, D.C. and meet the President next month. Photo by CAROL LAWRENCE, THE GAZETTE
