This fellow stepped up and stopped it.
"SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -
In the wake of a shooting at Freeman High School, Wednesday morning that left one person dead and three others injured, we are learning about heroism in the midst of the horrible violence.
The Spokane County Sheriff's Office told us about a man who stopped the shooting spree - Freeman High School custodian Joe Bowen.
The Sheriff's Office says Bowen confronted the gunman and ordered him to stop firing and surrender his weapon. The gunman did pause long enough for a school resource officer to take him into custody."

Last night at 1am.
They got it out by this morning and no houses were lost.
We have these little mountains behind our towns. This one
NW of where we are.
Hope we don't have to participate in any more of the fire season.

I've never seen the appeal of golf but my FIL was a great player and enjoyed it.
He might have been out there with them!

The fire jumped the river and is now burning in WA.
Roads on both sides are closed. I think we now have 5 passes or river roads
closed now across Oregon and WA.
There is ash falling in Seattle.
Smoke here at its worst. No recess for the kids. No sports practices.
Hope all of you in Florida and the East Coast stay safe from Irma.

We drove all over Oregon. LOTS of smoke. Three new fires started during our trip.
This one is along the Columbia Gorge on a hiking trail - started by a kid with a fire cracker.
A whole bunch of hikers had to be evac-ed and people from homes. So far no injuries. We drove
by today - a place I had spent a lot of time as a kid.
We are back, doggies happy, smoke here too.
Hope you all had a good weekend. :-)
