1To the editor:

We would like to express our appreciation and thanks to all the fire departments who responded to the huge grass fire last week on the National Guard. They all did an outstanding job in bringing the fire under control.

It is the most helpless feeling to see that giant cloud of smoke headed in your direction.

To the volunteers, thank you for serving others. And thanks to so many friends who just came to help when we needed them.
