Gunnar also shows the passion, skill and commitment of
the firefighters battling the flames and the enormous
logistics supporting their activities.
Gunnar's photos have and continue to show was is
actually happening in our backyards. He provides the
viewer with rare images about the true nature of wildland
fires and the amazing jobs performed by firefighters.

On Saturday, May 3, from 12 - 2:30 p.m. the Frazier Park
Library will host a photography show "Mountains
Burning."
Everybody is welcome to come in and enjoy the
spectacular images for a few minutes or for the entire
time.
Gunnar J Kuepper has captured images from more than
50 Wildfires in the Greater Frazier Mountain Area since
August of 2012, the latest one being the Curtis Fire on
April 30, 2014 in Lockwood Valley.

The "Mountains Burning" Photo Show goes hand-inhand with the Wildfire Awareness Expo’s on Saturday,
just across the street from the Frazier Park Library. There
you will receive valuable information on wildfire
awareness,
hazard
reduction,
and
emergency
preparedness at the Wildfire Awareness Expo. You will
see wild land firefighting equipment and meet local
wildland and Kern County firefighters.

His series of wildfire images shows the power and
sometimes even the beauty created by the flames, the
force of the dark smoke, as well as the total devastation
following the blaze.

In our Frazier Park Library you will see “wow” photos of
the men and women and their equipment in action, and
you will see spectacular images showing the recent
wildfires in and around our communities.

The 63rd annual California State Science Fair was held
in the California Science Center on April 28 - 29, 2014.
This year there were 1030 participants from 423 schools
throughout the State who met in competition for awards
totaling $50,000.
El Tejon School students, William Edwards, Michael
Stegeman, Jacquie Kelly, and Kelly Stegeman, were
among 629 other students participating for the very first
time at this prestigious event. Our students gave it their
all, but were unable to come home with an award; the
competition was just so challenging and intense.
However, what they did come home with was a very
positive attitude and experience that will help them
prepare for next year’s project and beyond. And despite
our students being exhausted from all the time and effort
they put into their projects, they were still very excited
and proud to represent El Tejon Unified School District
at this incredible event. I am so proud and honored to
have worked with such a dedicated group of students,
and I look forward to working with more future scientists
in the years ahead.
