Resources Committed: Personnel: 935; crews: 8 Type 1, 11 Type 2; engines: 57; helicopters: 4 Type 1, 2 Type 2, 2 Type 3; dozers: 3; water tenders: 15 Today's weather: 75 88 degrees, relative humidity 12 15%, wind NNW 8 15 mph gusting to 25 mph Total Injuries to Date: 5 Structures destroyed: 254 (242 residential commercial structures and 12 Area Closures: The entire White Mountain Wilderness, and that portion of the Smokey Bear Ranger District south of US 380 to the Mescalero Apache Reservation boundary, including a large area east and north of Ruidoso to the south boundary of the Fort Stanton Recreation Area. Summary: Black line is now in place from north of Runnels Stables west and south to White Horse Hill in the White Mountain Wilderness. Crews will mop up and hold the edge of the black line today, as helicopters ignite additional backing fires within the burnout area. Fire will be active in the burnout, producing smoke columns from torching and consumption of heavy fuels. Unstable atmosphere will readily disperse smoke, and chance of smoke settling on any community is minimal. Burnout of fuel around the Runnels Stables subdivision should be complete today. Activity on the remainder of the fire will consist of patrol and mop up, and rehabilitation of dozer lines in all divisions. Release of excess resources continues, making these resources available for other assignments. All subdivisions are now open. Angus, Bonita Park, Ski Run Road, and Bonita Lake are open to residents only. Residents returning to their homes should be alert for fire vehicle traffic and damaged roads. The Village of Ruidoso wants everyone to know that, despite the fire activity, it is open for business. See the following websites:Evacuations: All campgrounds west of Bonito Lake Information on wildland fire smoke and your health can be found on the New Mexico Department of Health website at:As the monsoons approach, heavy rainfall may produce flash floods. The National Weather Service Advisories are available at: A predictive model for probability of thunderstorms over burned areas, known as Burn Scar Thunderstorm Threat Matrix, is available at:The firefighting organization is humbled by the tremendous outpouring of gratitude and support from the community. The following excerpt from the June 18 edition of the Ruidoso Free Press is a succinct summary of the community's feelings. ICP will pack up, leave a small footprint behind and move on to another fire, in another place. The county will regroup and rebuild because more than a thousand of the country's finest took time from their lives to become a part of Lincoln County.

The real test of leadership is influence. Would your subordinates describe you as an effective manager, supervisor or team leader? Be honest with yourself. Put yourself in their shoes. Would you want to work for YOU?! If your employees' pay, perks and benefits were not dependent on doing what you ask, would they still want to follow you? If the answer is yes, you are truly a role model of leadership. In conducting leadership training around the world for over a decade, here are the key traits I hear over and over that employees want to see in their leaders. Yet, we need to be reminded of them. Many managers confide to me that they're so overloaded they forget about practicing many of these qualities on a regular basis. 1) Supportive/Good listener: It's been said the average person listens to what you have to say only 25% of the time. Yes, that's right. Much of the time we're caught up in our own "stuff" and we're not always listening. Listen. Think before you speak. Some people just need to be allowed to vent. Vent within reason of course. Then, they'll be more likely to listen to you. 2) Open minded. It's hard to listen without an open mind. At least acknowledge what your employees have to say. It doesn't mean you necessarily have to agree. In order to gain respect and get your team members to follow you, sometimes you first have to show respect. 3) Honest. Do you possess personal integrity? Your team members will look to see if you do what you say you are going to do. This sounds like common sense and it is. Yet, many in a leadership position forget this important trait. The minute you can't deliver on your promises you lose all credibility. It will be the one thing your employees will always remember. As the saying goes, "They remember your last act." Under promise and over deliver. Always do what you say you are going to do. True Leadership = Inspiration: 4) Inspiring. True leadership = inspiration. Real leaders have a passion for what they do. They are able to transfer that enthusiasm to their employees. People want to follow someone they respect and admire. In my leadership training, a lot of managers tell me they also want a leader "who is balanced in their personal as well as professional life." They see a balanced leader as someone who walks their talk. Employees want to follow someone who has what they want. 5) Intelligent. I frequently hear the comment, "In our organization, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing." Or, "My manager really has no idea what I do for a living. What my job entails, the challenges and the time constraints." Please educate yourself on each of your team member's responsibilities. It's the only way you can speak intelligently to them and gain respect. 6) Future oriented. Upper management should put their organization's five year, three year, and one year plan in writing and pass it out to every employee. A lot of employees don't know their organization's overall goals and objectives. An integral part of leadership is having vision, and being able to convey that vision in a way that excites and inspires team members. A great way to motivate most of your employees is to show each and every one where they fit in with the organization's big picture. Most of them want to know their purpose and how they make a difference. Effective Leadership = Effective Social Skills: 7) Excellent communicator. Many people are promoted to leadership positions based on their "hard skills" or technical skills. Yet, most managers describe true leadership as demonstrating good interpersonal skills. Excellent leaders and managers aren't just good communicators in terms of what's expected on the job. They also make it a priority to take a sincere interest in their employees. Little things go a long way. For example, know your employee's birthdays, whether or not they have children, and acknowledge their length of service on their anniversary. 8) Fair minded. Employees and managers alike respect leaders in an organization who are fair, objective, and "don't play favorites." They want sincere recognition for a job well done. Most employees want to be judged on their performance, not on whether or not they've got friends in high places. 9) Flexible with change. An effective leader is open to change, new ideas and taking risks. A leader who is a good role model doesn't take a "my way or the highway" approach. They're confident enough in themselves that they can give explanations for WHY a change is being made. Employees always want to know why. Managers and leaders who are secure within themselves don't need to say, "Because I'm your supervisor and I said so." 10) Leadership starts with service. Effective leadership involves rolling up your sleeves and helping others. The term "servant leadership" was coined in 1970 by Robert K. Greenleaf, former AT executive and founder of The Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership. He wrote, "It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead." "A good example is the best sermon." Anon.

Big Size Air Jordan 6 Rings Black Dark Charcoal,Air Jordan 11 Ultimate Gift of Flight ''This place will get kind of rowdy if you let it,'' quarterback Brandon Weeden said. ''Anytime you get them out of their seats and headed to the exits, that's huge.'' Missouri quarterback James Franklin committed four turnovers in the second half: three interceptions and a lost fumble at the Oklahoma State 4. Weeden had three touchdown passes after the opening snap of the second quarter. Lewis' interception and fumble recovery helped the Cowboys (7 0, 4 0 Big 12) pull away and win their ninth in a row on the road despite injuries to both starting wide receivers. They're 7 0 for just the third time in school history, also doing it in 2008 and 1945. A major reason: They've forced 22 turnovers the last five games. ''They gave us what we had been working on all week,'' defensive end Jamie Blatnick said. ''When we see what we've prepared for it works out for us.'' Justin Blackmon caught a touchdown pass in the first quarter but was held out the second half as a precaution after taking a blow to the head. Hubert Anyiam, the Cowboys' third leading receiver, is out for the season with a broken bone in his left foot. Isaiah Anderson had a career best five receptions and Tracy Moore matched his career best with seven receptions. Moe had six catches for 103 yards and a score for Missouri (3 4, 1 3), which has yet to win consecutive games and has dropped three straight in the series. All four of the Tigers' losses have come against teams ranked at the time, and they play at No. 18 Texas A next week. ''We adjusted at halftime and played a little better,'' defensive end Jacquies Smith said. ''But we didn't make enough plays.'' The Tigers had a strong second quarter, scoring on an 18 yard run by Kendial Lawrence and Moe's 34 yard catch from James Franklin to cut the deficit to seven, before being undone by mistakes. Lewis intercepted a tipped pass at the Missouri 27 and three plays later Randle scored on a 16 yard run for a two touchdown cushion midway through the third quarter. Gaines intercepted Weeden in the end zone and returned it 54 yards, also ending Weeden's string of 194 consecutive passes without a pick. Franklin's lost fumble gave the Cowboys possession at the 12, and again they needed just three plays to respond with Randle's 59 yard jaunt making it 38 17. Brodrick Brown's interception and 21 yard return set up Randle's fourth TD in the final minute. ''We had opportunities,'' Pinkel said. ''Against a team like this, a really, really good team, we have to take advantage of every single opportunity.'' Weeden was 33 for 49 for 338 yards after a sizzling start and extended his streak of 30 yard completions to 15 games. The 28 year old senior was 19 for 25 for 214 yards in the first quarter, with all six incompletions on drops. ''We may score 40 in the first half if we just catch the dang ball,'' Gundy said. ''We have to clean that up this week.'' Michael Harrison was wide open on a 27 yard catch and Blackmon caught an 8 yarder for his 28th receiving touchdown in 19 games. On the first play of the second quarter, Oklahoma State went up 21 3 on Weeden's 13 yard TD pass to Randle. Trickery produced Missouri's best play of the quarter, with Franklin throwing a lateral pass to Moe and then getting it back for a 31 yard gain to the 13. But the Tigers stalled, settling for a short field goal by Grant Ressel.
