LDS Scout Maps Florida Historical Trail
Miami Herald 2Apr00 P2
By Sofia Santana: Herald Writer

PERRINE, FLORIDA -- Jared Cadogan, an 11-year-old Boy Scout from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Homestead, Florida, has recalculated and mapped an old hiking trail as a requirement for the American Heritage merit badge, his fourth badge so far.

The trail that Cadogan mapped out has a rich and varied history. Known as the Old Cutler Road, it was first used by the Tequesta Indians several hundred years ago. It was used as recently as 100 years ago as a horse trail to connect the estates of two settlers.

"I had to map a historical trail and bring it to the attention of the community to earn the badge,'' said Jared, who lives in Perrine and is in his first year of Boy Scouts. ``I haven't hiked it yet, but I might this summer.''

Jared, a sixth-grader at Southwood Middle, has already earned merit badges in Indian Lore, Indian History and Environmental Science badges. He eventually hopes to become a computer scientist or engineer.
