ADOT plans to burn slash piles
The Arizona Department of Transportation plans to burn 700 slash piles along State Route 67 and US 89A in the Jacob Lake area. The project is expected to begin this week and will continue through late winter or early spring. Crews will be burning Monday through Thursday weekly. No lane closures will be necessary, but motorists should anticipate drifting smoke across the roadway which may cause reduced visibility.
Booster Club seeks members
The Grand Canyon High School Booster Club is in need of new members to take an active role in athletic and academic events that impact student-athletes.

There will be a meeting on Oct. 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the school multi-purpose room. The one-hour meeting will cover the history of the Booster Club, overview and objectives, recent projects and future of the club.
