Inslee declares wildfire state of emergency, limited burn ban
Inslee declares wildfire state of emergency, limited burn ban

Gov. Jay Inslee declared a statewide state of emergency last Tuesday (July 9) relating to the growing risk of wildfires, including a statewide prohibition on most outdoor and agricultural burning through September 30.

"Washington is facing a historic drought and we have already experienced record-breaking heat," Inslee said. "We must be vigilant in our efforts to prevent wildfires, and the loss of life and destruction of land and property that comes with them. We don't want a repeat of recent years with dangerous wildfires across the state that have destroyed towns, killed livestock and resulted in weeks of unhealthy air quality. I urge everyone to do their part to help protect our beautiful state and all our communities."

"We have seen a record-breaking number of fires for this early in the summer," said Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz. "Extreme drought conditions leave communities across our state at risk as fire danger continues to climb. I'm asking everyone to do their part and take precautions to prevent wildfires. Our firefighters on the frontlines depend on us to help keep them safe."

Cheese Days a success again this year

Cheese Days was a success again this year. The 100th anniversary was celebrated by all. The crowd was excited to be out and the parade route was filled with a few thousand spectators. It was a fun weekend and Saturday was no exception.

The festivities started with the Car Show at the Toledo Middle School early in the morning. The area was packed with cars and vendors. Then at 10:00 am before the parade, Winlock Dance Center performed as parents watched their dancers perform.

At 11:00 am the parade started and there were quite a few entries. Toledo Police started the parade off, with Mayor Dobosh sitting with Chief Brockmueller. Chief Mike Dorothy followed right after with the Toledo Fire Department. Toledo Big Cheeses Ron and Sue Smith and Dale and Jeanette Koth were in Ron Smith's classic car, followed by the Cheese Days float. The Toledo High School Band did an excellent job.
