WORKSTAR HEATS UP

Santa Catalina island is a deceptively wild and untamed place. The 74-square-mile island is widely known for picturesque Avalon village, its casino and popular harbor. But inland are vertical peaks rising up to 1,600 feet and narrow canyons and arroyos that are barely accessible by foot. Dry grasslands and the infamous Channel Island winds can be a deadly combination. In 2007 a construction crew accidentally set off a blaze that burned 4,000 acres and virtually surrounded Avalon. A total conflagration was barely averted by a massive response from the mainland LACoFD.

But brush fires and the worrying fact that most of Avalon's homes are small, wooden bungalows crowded together on narrow streets are the main reasons Weeks and the LACoFD brass decided three years ago to commission something unique for their most remote outpost.

Captain Black explains that they have in place what they call the "Catalina Plan." In addition to Black and his engineer at the Avalon station, there are the Avalon Fire Department's five firefighters and 25 volunteers, the 10 members of the Avalon Harbor, six LA County sheriffs, the rangers of the Catalina Island Conservancy and a number of other professionals and volunteers. When a fire or any other incident occurs, Captain Black jumps in his car to access the situation. If there is any question at all that the local crews might need help, Black implements the Plan and calls to the mainland for backup.

It takes the mainland crews about 45 minutes to get here by helicopter," say Captain Black, "so whatever the situation is, we need to do our best to control it during that time."


NAVISTAR SWEEPS 2014 ATD TRUCK OF THE YEAR HONORS

Both International ProStar with ISX15 and TerraStar 4x4 awarded

NEW ORLEANS (January 26, 2014) - Navistar swept the competition during this week's annual American Truck Dealers (ATD) Convention and Exposition in New Orleans with the International® ProStar® with Cummins ISX15 engine with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) named "2014 Heavy-Duty Commercial Truck of the Year" and the International® TerraStar® 4x4 named "2014 Medium-Duty Commercial Truck of the Year."

"It is an honor to be recognized this year with both the 2014 ATD Heavy-Duty and Medium-Duty Commercial Truck of the Year titles," said Bill Kozek, president of North America Truck and Parts for Navistar. "Being recognized in both these categories proves International is back with great product offerings."

Judged by a panel of journalists from leading truck publications in North America, Truck of the Year is selected based on a number of criteria, including innovation and design, safety, and driver and owner satisfaction. For the Heavy-Duty category, the Class 8 International ProStar beat out the Kenworth T880 Vocational Truck with PACCAR MX-13 engine and Peterbilt Model 579. The TerraStar 4x5 beat out the Hino 195h-DC, Kenworth Class 6 K370 Cabover and Peterbilt Model 220 for Medium-Duty Truck of the Year.

ED'S CORNER

A women had a pet mongoose. It was very faithful. One day she went to the market leaving her baby in the care of the mongoose.

At that time a big cobra entered the house. The mongoose killed it after a long and fierce fight.

When the woman came back she saw the mongoose lying at the entrance. She noticed its blood-covered mouth.

In her haste the women thought that the mongoose had killed her baby. In a moment of sudden fury, the woman threw the water pot on the mongoose and killed it.

Alas! When she entered the house she was filled with remorse. Her baby was playing cheerfully.

Nearby a big cobra lay dead. The women shed tears of grief fondling the carcass of the mongoose.

MORAL: Do not act in haste.
