The U.S. Forest Service is dismissing a study it commissioned that recommends a major overhaul in its approach to fighting wildfires, suggesting swapping out expensive retardant-dropping air tankers in favor of less costly water-scooping planes. A Rand Corp. study examined the optimal combination of large planes and helicopters deployed to fires, providing an analysis of the effectiveness and efficiency of each type of aircraft. The Forest Service relies heavily on an aging fleet of WWII-era tankers to fight fires, which drop thousands of gallons of fire retardant that slows the spread of fires and allows crews on the ground to build containment lines.

La Cañada Flintridge is heading into the thick of fire season in good shape, according to Assistant Fire Chief Bill Niccum, who told the City Council at its meeting Monday night that the third week of October has historically proven to be the most dangerous time for fires. Niccum said that dry vegetation remaining from summer, combined with hot, dry Santa Ana winds that typically arrive in late October, push the risk of a major fire to the highest point of the year. Despite that, Niccum said the city is well prepared, noting in particular that there have been new investments in water-drop aircraft in the wake of the 2009 Station fire.

He is 27 years old, stands fit and trim at 6'2'' and will return for a second tour of military duty in Iraq sometime this month. His name is Cpl. Michael T. Morton and he is a U.S. Marine. For me, the war in Iraq now has a face. I met Morton and members of his family last Saturday night during a surprise birthday party for his father, Marty Morton, who is director of Maintenance, Facilities and Operations for La Cañada Unified School District. The party in La Crescenta celebrated a dual purpose, as it was also a farewell send-off for Mike.
