The rain certainly was a blessing, but more moisture is needed to get it under more control than the current 32%. According to meteorologists, it doesn't look like we're going to get more rain any time soon. As of Tuesday, the fire had consumed 15,233. Smoke from fires has caused concern, and even air quality alerts, all over the West. Newspapers in Utah recently reported that the smoke from Idaho fires was invading that state. Last week's fire article had a slight error. Somehow a comma got printed as a decimal, and See WESLEY FXRE, page 13 f Sue Schaffer took this amazing photo at the Circle C Ranches near New Meadows while a helicopter drew water from a pond to drop on the Wesley Fire. It shows Mike Schaffer and his horse, Moonshadow, waving a salute to fire- fighters battling the Wesley Fire. "We wanted to show them we appreciated them keeping New Meadows and Round Valley safe," Sue said. "Sometimes we just don't say thank you or show our appreciation, and this was just our way to do that, we never really expected anyone other than the pilots to see our wave of thanks.

THE SPORT REPORT I HOMECOMING Find out who got busted on page 15 See the Pics on page 11 BY DALE FISK How pathetic is it that less than two-tenths of an inch of precipitation makes for a headline? Not only was it not a downpour, but it was spotty, with some areas receiving even less. A grand total of .04 inches was recorded at the Boise Airport by 8:15 PM on Sunday. Light showers were reported all over southern Idaho and southwest Montana into Monday morning. For the whole month of June, Council received less than half of the normal rainfall, with at total of 1.03 inches. The last time we got any real rain was. July 14, when the Council area got a third of an inch, along with a thunderstorm or two. September 9 brought a trace of rain to the area, but only in spots. Along with those scattered showers came lightning that ignited the Wesley Fire northwest of New Meadows. The light rain on Sunday helped slow the fire, but came nowhere near putting it out. It was nice while it lasted - almost no smoke and even a little fog here and there on Monday morning. The next week or more looks to be back to sunny weather, with a 10% chance of rain next Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to be no higher than the low 80s.
