I’ve been saving newspapers with pictures since Sammi’s post a couple of weeks ago. I have:
Denver Post – Denver and the West section – July 11th – picture of Travis Lesmeister and Seth Brewer – identified as members of the Wenatchee Valley Rappellers;
Denver Post – July 19th – picture of Jered Hogansen – at a Hayman burn area in West Creek – the accompanying article quotes David Storms from the Skookum 102 crew in Eugene, Ore; Steven Davis, also of Eugene; and Regis Elrod, also on the Skookum crew. There are also US Forest Service personnel quoted from various parts of the country. If more than one person wants this, I have a scanner and will send copies wherever you want.
People can access these by going to www.thedenverpost.com. The Post archives articles and you can search and print free for 60 days; after that, you can still search, but it costs, I think, $1.75 to print the article. Pictures and graphics don’t print after 60 days is what I understand.
I’ll hold on to everything I find until the end of fire season in case families want the originals.
I don’t know if families of the pilots killed here at the Big Elk Fire want them, but there are pictures of both pilots in the Rocky Mountain News today (July 20) with several articles. They can be accessed through www.RockyMountainNews.com.
Do we have any information on where to send donations yet?
Thanks, Ab, for all you do.â€¨Colorado Mom
I’m posting that info below.
