HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY MAY28,2010 5 Area 74 prescribed, fire operations begin Submitted by GILA NATIONAL FORESTISi/ver City The Black Range Ranger District has treated approxi- mately 600 acres on the Area 74 Pre- scribed Fire as of Thursday, May 20. Due to firing opera- tions (ignitions) near a power line and around private prop- erty, fire managers proceeded with cau- tion in the initial stages of the pre- scribed fire. The plan for Fri- day, May 21. began interior ignitions in order to prepare for a possible wind event on Friday afternoon and Saturday. This will allow the interior pockets of fuel to burn more actively to meet the objectives of the prescribed fire. Objectives of the prescribed fire are to improve wildlife habi- tat, range, and forest health. Firing operations are imple- mented only when conditions fall within prescription and the spe- cific guidelines of the project. If conditions are not met, the pre- scribed fire will be delayed or postponed. The Area 74 Prescribed Fire is located in the Poverty Creek area, about 50 miles northwest of Truth or Consequences. N.M.. and 20 mi&apos;les east of the Beave rhead Work Center. Planned acreage for the pre- Scribed fire is 9,078 acres. Firefighting personnel will be monitoring and overseeing the project. A portion of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDNST) located immediately south of N.M. State Highway 59 will also be impacted by the prescribed fire as the trail bisects the fire area. The temporary closure of a segment on the CDNST is in ef- fect. It is recom- mended that hikers contact the Black Range Ranger District (RD) to find gift the daily, status of the CDNST. Please exercise caution when driving near the project, as smoke may limit ,vis- ibility along segments of N.M. 59. If smoke is present, drive with your lights on and reduce speed. Residents in the area may experience some mpact from smoke during this prescribed fire. For additional information, contact the Black Range RD.

Joana plays soft- ball, and she also can handle a basketball well on the court. In- doors; Joana enjoys video games and loves watching shows on TV. Joana loves to capture her memo- ries through scrapbooking and like every girl she "just loves" clothes. Joana's dream vacation is to go to Disneyland where her young heart can enjoy all the fun to be had with her favorite Disney character "Pooh": Joana's favorite food is spaghetti and ranch dressing is a must- have topping to make any meal complete. Joana's forever fam- ily should be ready with loads of affection and should be willing to en- gage in Joana's education and counseling. Joana is cur- rently below grade level in school; however she is a good stu- dent whose favorite Subject is sci- ence. Like all teens Joana can use that extra reminder to do her homework. Joana prefers-a loving mom and dad who would support her relationship with her siblings .... in fact the desire clos- est to her heart is to maintain con- tact with her siblings. Joana would like a home limited to a younger child or a baby, so she wotdd still have-room to soak up the attention she likes. A room of Joana H. her own is also at the top of Joana's list.., and maybe a fam- ily pet like a dog, hamster or cat. Joana will thrive in a structured home, where expectations are clearly defined and the family is motivated to guide and encourage Joana to express her self in a positive way and work through her behavioral challenges. Joana would blossom with a family who could support her in becoming a social but- terfly and in building age appro- priate social skills and bound- aries.

The 3 rd Annual Jessie Darnell 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament invades .Maverick Gym this Saturday and Sunday, May 29 and 30. More than 50 teams are signed up and ready to hoop it up. That's quite .the accomplish- ment, since last year they had 42 teams and in its inception they only had 30 teams. The well-organized tourney came to life three years ago, when the late Jessie Darnell's sister, Jamie Diaz, came up with an idea to keep the memory of her brother aliye and well in the community in which he was so beloved. "It takes well over a month to orgamze, we have scheduled 82 games for Saturday and 66 on Sunday. That is a lot of bas- ketball in just two short days," said DJ Saucedo, one of the events organizers. Jessie Darnell's tragic depar- ture from this world touched this community. His loss was not in vain; the commu- nity has had to learn how to cope with this kind of tragedy and has grown together because of these kinds of sad 3rd Annual Jessie Darnell 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament Schedule for Satuiday, May 29, 2010 losses.

"I want the community to remember him in a positive way and I want the community to know that families can get through these, tragedies in a posi- tive way," added Diaz. The proceeds of the tourna- ment go directly to the One Heart- beat Scholarship Fund. This is a memorial scholarship given to two students at Lordsburg High School every year in the amount of $1,000 each. One thing is certain; this community comes alive during this event. The spirit of Jessie Darnell is felt in the gym he once played in and shared the stage with his Maverick teammates. "We'd like to thank all of the volunteers and our sponsors, be- cause this would not be possible without them," concluded Diaz. There are five different age categories in this tourney and there are plaques and medals given to first and second place. All participants get t-shirts. There will be teams from Sil- ver City, Deming, Las Cruces, Morenci, Duncan, Animas and as far as Tucson hitting the hard- wood this weekend. So if you're a basketball fan, this is an event for you.
