Subject: Turkey Springs Arizona Gone

I have just returned from Show Low, AZ, after evacuating my
family from our house, 1/2 mile from the fire line. We spent the
night in Eagar, AZ, at the large domed high school gymnasium
which President Bush visited this morning.

Before leaving, I spoke with Mike Rogers, who was also

family are safe, and (b) ascertain to what extent he was able to
gather evidence from the Turkey Springs area. Suffice to say for

remain a tree-whispered secret that is now 'Gone with the
