SINCE HIS RETIREMENT in 2004 from Local 374, Hammond, Ind., Bruce (Randy) Scott has been keeping busy volunteering his time for community services in northwest Indiana. An assistant pastor of the Pentecostals of Southlake in Merrillville, Ind., Scott also is the chaplain for the community’s police department. He says his greatest honor was to open a session of the U.S. House of Representatives with a prayer in July 2010 as a guest chaplain sponsored by Rep. Pete Visclosky and his staff.
