Louisville Community Mourns
the tragic loss
Benjamin Ryan "Ben" Petrzilka
Grandson of Louisville City Councilman Clete Petrzilka
Benjamin Petrzilka, 13 year old grandson of Louisville's Clete
Petrzilka, lost his life in the Scout camp tornado at Little Sioux,
Iowa. Ben's parents, Bryan and Arnell Petrzilka of Omaha, are doing
everything they can to improve the safety of Scout camps by helping to
provide storm shelters. They remain staunch supporters of Scouting,
and hope that no other families will ever suffer the same kind of loss.
To this end, the Ben Petrzilka Memorial Fund has been established at
Home State Bank
in Louisville. Funds in excess of the final expenses
of Ben Petrzilka will be used for Scout safety. Initial meetings with
local and national Boy Scout leadership have already been held, and
preliminary work on the storm shelter concept has begun.
They say every cloud has a silver lining. Although the loss is nearly
unimaginable, the safety upgrades will make a difference for
generations of future Scouts. Donations may be made at Home State Bank

The Most Urgent Call
June 11, 2008
“On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake,
Thursday Morning June 12th, 2008 millions and millions of people world wide froze in their tracks, in stunned wonder and amazment; trying to imagine a situation, so dire, so urgent, so critical in Heaven that God had to call Ben, the natural leader, and 3 more of America's Best Scouts to report immediately.
Not soon, not when you get a little older, but right now
Well, whatever it was, I am sure it is all under control now.
You can always count on a Petrzilka to answer the call
and rise to the challenge.
