The group’s National Council on Thursday reportedly gave the go-ahead to allow openly gay boys into its ranks. Tell us what you think of the decision.

Jeff Eberhart was in a motorcycle accident Thursday at 1 p.m. on Interstate 75 northbound in Emerson.
Updated 9 p.m. Emerson Police Chief Stan Bradley called the Interstate 75 crash that claimed the life of Jeff Eberhart, 58, an "unfortunate accident." Eberhart's Harley-Davidson, which was pulling a trailer, was the only vehicle involved in the 1 p.m. incident just outside Cartersville in Bartow County, Bradley told Patch.

Authorities believe Eberhart lost control of the motorcycle as a result. "That's just speculation, but with a motorcycle, the margin of error is much smaller than with a car," Bradley said, adding the motorcycle, which was traveling about 65 mph, …
