I bet the Sun News could find the time to build a toolbar which Las Cruces residents could download onto their computers to give us instant news and links to stories, sure would be an upgrade from print media and quick online news stories on your Web site one may or may not see.

Free toolbar creators can be created with free software, here are a few links for you.

"Cause of the fire is not know at this time"

I'll bet it was an M1A1 Abrams tank round that went a little far that started this fire!

"The Gila National Forest Ranger District is reporting a new fire that broke out at about 9 a.m. this morning 15 miles north of Silver City in the Pinos Altos Mountains and two miles south of the Gila Wilderness boundary."

This lead paragraph should be taken out and SHOT. Here, let me give it a try:

"There is a new fire on the Silver City Ranger District of the Gila National Forest 15 miles north of Silver City, two miles south of the Gila Wilderness boundary in the Pinos Altos Mountains."

CAN I HAVE A JOB NOW, LAS CRUCES SUN-NEWS? I GRADUATED FROM NMSU WITH THE SAME DEGREE IN JOURNALISM THESE CATS HAVE, BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT I SEEM TO KNOW THAT PEOPLE "REPORT," NOT RANGER DISTRICTS, AND THAT THERE ARE RANGER DISTRICTS ON A FOREST, BUT THEY HAVE NAMES SEPARATE FROM THE NATIONAL FOREST THEY'RE ON.

What in the hell is the "Gila National Forest Ranger District?" In this case, it's the Silver City District. It could have been the Wilderness District, the Glenwood District, the Black Range District, the Quemado District... Why, oh why can't people who report on US Forest Service activities educate themselves at least somewhat regarding the inner workings of the agency?

George Bush caused it. Might as well blame him for this too.
