The incident apparently occurred on State Route 73 near the junction with State Route 260, outside the parking lot for the Hon-Dah Resort and Casino hotel. Officer David Kellywood, one of the youngest officers with WMAT Police, responded to a report of shots fired at the roadside between the Hon-Dah RV Park and the casino hotel. A press release issued by the Navajo County Sheriff's Office on behalf of WMAT Police at 10 a.m. Monday morning stated that the first officer on the scene located the man matching the description of the individual involved and "the subject immediately engaged in a violent physical altercation with the officer during which the officer was shot." A second responding officer arrived shortly thereafter and fearing for his safety, shot the suspect. Both Officer Kellywood and the suspect were transported to Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center for treatment. According to sources, both died as a result of their injuries.

    FN 7x57 1895 Mauser scout rifle? $200

    even if the barrel channel is stepped the furniture alone is worth $200. this was well done and no holes drilled. heaven knows i am no buyer now but a pic of the crest markings, barrel channel and bottom metal would be of value. a cock-on-opening kit and a new 16" .358win. barrel would have made a pleasant addition for me. past lives and all... good luck, lee

    that looks like chief butte on the pinal parkway(az79). we found lots of tank training evidence and a couple of tank traps farther north at the edge of ninety-six hills where they reach the parkway. i was told it was tank training from ww2 by an old fellow in aj i met at aj imports say 1994. could it have been an effort to create a mud bog for driving tanks through for training? long shot. lee

    Angel in a fire tower

    a friends wife that has spent 30 years in the Greens Peak tower needs your prayers. she has been evac-ed far away from loved ones here on the mountain and it will be a rough road back. i cannot even imagine the sleep she lost for the forest-and for us-dreading the many wind swept dawns during spring and summer in the white mountains. and-of course-the tears........ i do not know her but offer prayers, and luck. lee The End of the Ocean High clouds at dawn and finger tracings of moisture in the eastern sky. From beyond the western rim of mountains, ocean’s breath floods the valley. Mist spills over high ridges. One by one, the peaks wink out. Soon, the lookout is wrapped in blowing cloud. Wetness drips from propped shutters. The visible world beyond misted windows, an isthmus of rock and heather. “I stood as one stupefied,” wrote Petrarch. “I looked down and saw the clouds lay beneath my feet. I felt as if another.” tim mcnulty

    they usually burrow in and hibernate during the coldest weather, must be climate change.
