ELK CITY —- The melodrama for the Elk City Days parade, Aug. 14, is called The Elk City Gang! It is an old west reenactment from the late 1800s. Larry Marcum is the head of the gang. It should be a lot of fun.

Looks like the Dixie-Jumbo fire is winding down. It has been turned over to a local Nez Perce-Clearwater Forest Type 3 team. It has burned up more than 37,000 acres and at present the perimeter is 18 percent contained. As of July 25, there are 524 people on the fire. Keep the firefighters in your prayers and thank them when you see them. It is hard and dangerous work.

For those of you with a computer, you can go to the INCIWEB site for information about all the fires taking place. For the Dixie-Jumbo fire go to Dixie-Jumbo Fires (ID) Information - InciWeb the Incident Information System (nwcg.gov).
