Fire danger not over The public has been asked to use caution while enjoying the great outdoors this Labor Day weekend, as fire danger in the forest still varies between high and very high. According to the Gallatin National Forest office in Bozeman there are currently no fire restrictions in effect. However, the potential for wildfire has increased in recent weeks, despite recent rains and cooler evening temperatures. Due to years of persistent drought large fuels continue to be low in moisture. With Fall just around the corner, the drying of green grasses and shrubs will add to the fire danger. National Forest officials are asking the public to completely extinguish all cooking and warming fires before leaving them, even for a short time; to be cautious when smoking and use an ashtray; and to check ATV's and chainsaws for properly functioning spark arrestors. There have been 21 lightning and seven human-caused fires in the Gallatin National Forest this season.

Rivers Across would like to depict how Captain Clark and the Corps of Engineers spent their time in Sweet Grass County. "The purpose of the signs," Huepal said, "is to help visitors understand the Lewis and Clark story." Heupal's designs are free to the local commission and are paid through NPS funds. If the committee chooses to use Heupal's designs, it will save nearly $2,000 in design fees. The committee wants the three-sign series to depict events as Clark and his band of explorers moved along the Yellowstone. The group will use text from a book edited by Gary E. Moulton from the original journals called Journey Sports Briefs of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The interpretive signs will combine provocative text with vivid graphics. One sign will have a place for driving tour brochures for Clark's route on the Yellowstone, as well as other places of historic interest in the county. Native plants will be planted around the kiosk. Heupal said the signs could be done by next year in time for the bicentennial celebration. The signs are made of material that withstand various acts of vandalism and weather. The local commission will decide whether to use KLB Exhibits of Missoula or the NPS for the signs. Rivers Across members axe inspecting the KLB signs west of Livingston and the NPS signs west of Bozeman before making their decision.
