The 1984 Summer Olympics may have ended in Los Angeles Sunday night, but, thanks to a young man bucking for Eagle Scout, there were Olympic games of a different sort Monday in L.A.

At Montello Field 30 children and teen-agers from the Lewiston-Auburn area competed in a Special Olympics organized by Michael Menard, 17, of Scout Troop 158 in Lewiston.

The games were opened by Lewiston Mayor Alfred Plourde at 9:30 a.m. and gave handicapped kids from 6 to 19 a chance to compete for prizes in sports ranging from shot put and discus to the 150-yard-dash.
