The flights took place in the late- morning, and people may heard and saw NORAD fighter aircraft in close proximity with DOD contracted general aviation air- craft as they practice their in{er- cept and identification proce- dures. The exercise was been care- fully planned and was closely controlled to ensure NORAD's rapid response capability. NORAD has conducted ex- ercise flights of this nature throughout the U.S. and Canada since the start of Operation Noble Eagle, the command's response to the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. Each exercise flight utilizes a scenario to test NORAD's response, systems and equipment. Scenarios could in- clude counter-drug operations, aircraft in distress, aircraft defect- ing, hijacking, unknown aircraft, Dangerous Military Activity, Temporary Flight Restriction violation or airborne terrorist.

Ruiz, who is also a City of Lordsburg employee, said that all City departments are currently shorthanded and having to take on extra workloads and it would be unfair to all City employees to grant the raises in question. In the end, the Council ap- proved a motion to create a com- parable salary schedule for all City employees. o Cont 4 4 RELAY FOR LIFE e June 18, 2010 There are currently 21 teams enrolled in this year's event!
