Optimism Dominates Fire Lines

fire downtown

Secure fire lines and a shift to cooler weather have led to a relaxation of defense modes that have been in place for the last week in the southeast corner of Jackson.  The hose and pumps that were laid out in Jackson are being removed by crews today. Additionally, limited access for some local businesses will be arranged with Safety Officer escorts.  Taking advantage of cooler temperatures, increased air moisture, and decreased winds, firefighters expect to make swift progress in the completion of fire line construction on the eastern portions of the fire.  In the Game Creek and Porcupine Creek subdivisions, structure protection measures will remain in place while crews improve those lines and extinguish pockets of heat in the Wilson Creek drainage. Depending on weather conditions and fire behavior, fire managers say they may consider burnout operations later in the week to strengthen the perimeter.

    Just how does a new offensive philosophy affect the wide receivers?  One position that the Wyoming Cowboys were deep at on the offensive side of the ball was wide receiver.  That’s because they were used to trotting out five wide-outs every snap, so the need for those players was essential.  Now that two, maybe three […]
  • Why can’t I find old-school camo? Wait, don’t answer that. - August 27, 2014
    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
