FROM THE HUMOR TO GET US THROUGH THIS HEAT WAVE DEPARTMENT
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sandra Scott, Fiscal Specialist, sends along the following (true) story on the subject of: "A funny thing happened on my way..."

She says, "I can laugh now, at what happened this morning ..."

The Scenario:
Last night, our cat (my husband says "your cat") killed a mouse and I did not feel like going out that late to dispose of the mouse.

This morning, as I am leaving for work, out the door, I step on this headless, one paw missing, dead mouse. Mouse parts were scattered all over the front porch. (Last night the mouse wasn't that close to the front door. I would think the cat moved it, but I wouldn't put it past my husband either.)

Anyway, after stepping on this mouse part, I pulled my shoe off, washed it off with the hose, and set it on the porch. Now I have one shoe on, walking tippy-toed with the bare foot, and washing off the steps and porch. I had to now dispose of the mouse (I tossed it over the fence, into the woods).

Before I could come inside the house, I had to take the other shoe off, and leave it outside too. I came inside, washed my feet off, put on my house slippers which were sitting by the front, door, tried to call my husband, but to no avail.

Finally I am in the car, I had driven off, and after a short time driving ... I notice I am wearing my house slippers; my fluffy, navy blue house slippers! Of course, I have to head back for home, go inside and find a dry pair of shoes, yadda, yadda, yadda....

I made it in to work after all. Just thought I would share this. Sometimes it is good to laugh at your own situations.

RTI PRESENTS REPORT ON FUEL REMOVEL PROJECTS
On July 10, RTI Project Coordinator, Larry Mason, presented findings from the soon to be released RTI report on "Investigation of Alternative Strategies for Design, Layout, and Administration of Fuel Removal Projects" to the Lakeview Stewardship Group, the Fremont National Forest, and the Fremont-Winema Resource Advisory Committee in Lakeview, Oregon. This report includes case-study analysis of alternative fuel removal treatment simulations for the Fremont National Forest and the Okanogan National Forest. This analysis was performed to better understand fuel reduction activities based upon metrics of effective risk reduction, economic results, consequences to selected wildlife habitats, and to additions/subtractions of atmospheric carbon.

PULP & PAPER SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR TEACHERS A SUCCESS
Eighteen high school science teachers attended the Summer Institute for papermaking and recycling held July 8 - 10. The teachers left with instructions and laboratory equipment for conducting laboratory experiments that teach scientific principles through applications in pulping and papermaking. This was the second year for the Summer Institute. The program is an opportunity for teachers to earn continuing education credits.

RECENT ACTIVITIES AT WIND RIVER CANOPY CRANE

In Congress, the House VA/HUD Appropriations Subcommittee has reportedly funded NEON (National Ecological Observatory Network), a new program being formulated at NSF -National Science Foundation at the requested funding level. Professor Jerry Franklin and others will be competing for this grant. Best of luck Professor Franklin.

WRCC FIELD STUDIES
The Wind River Canopy Crane is on line with the busy field season in full swing. Current studies this month, include:
-- Height dependent variation in tissue water relations and growth of tall trees. Dr. Barbara Bond, OSU and Frederick Meinzer, PNW Research Station Corvallis.
-- Stand level herbivory measurements. Dr. David Shaw , WRCCRF and Kris Ernst, CWU.
