LOWELL / SYRINGA The threat of fire is over for hopefully this year for Lowell; it’s three miles out and burning very slowly. News from the Coolwater Complex about the Andy’s Hump fire is that cooler weather has stopped that burn from causing concern for structures here at the confluence. They continue to watch and finish the planned protection. Forest Supervisor Cheryl Probert has approved a plan designed to improve forest health and reduce fuels. The Lowell WUI project (we pronounce woo-ee) will treat 166 acres on the district.
The fire crews called in from afar are heading home. Our own local crews will remain in place.
Fall is here with the cold wet weather, yellow leaves, football games and pumpkins getting ready to pick.
The wedding behind the resort at Wilkins/Brown property was held on a perfect sunny day, not even any smoke.
With all the goings on the MERMS were able to enjoy Lumberjack Days in Orofino. They scattered when they walked in and the only photo was of Miss Maddie; she was loving life.
Her cousin Mr. Max is loving life too at preschool — I think he’s the smartest one!
Here’s a quote: “When you need to use the bathroom at preschool, you don’t take off all your clothes.”
