Summit Academy has been turned into the command center for the Highrange Fire over on Joseph Plains. The top photo shows the tents and vehicles to the west of the school. Normally you would be able to see Cottonwood Butte in the background but the smoke in the area pretty much hazes it out. The second photo shows the supply area to the north of the gym. The third photo shows more tents set up in the playground area and the bottom photo shows the portable shower facility.Click on the photos for larger views.

Jason Stubbers graduated from the Graziadio School of Business and Management, Pepperdine University, in Malibu, Calif., with a Master of Science in Organizational Management on August 2. He had the honor of singing the National Anthem at the graduation ceremony. He is the son of Ralph and Debbie Stubbers of Greencreek, and they, along with their daughter Heidi McRoberts, were in attendance. After graduation festivities, the group attended the Dodgers baseball game against the Chicago Cubs, which the Dodgers won in extra innings with a home run in the 12th. The Stubbers also toured the Getty Museum of Art and Architecture in Los Angeles. The museum sets on a hill above the city and on a clear day you can see the entire region all the way to the ocean. Unfortunately there were clouds with a little rain that day—very unusual for LA in August. Photo by Debbie Stubbers.
