I am letting the WWW.SYCUANFIRE.COM and WWW.GEHOTSHOTS.ORG hosting expire as such they have been erased from the Internet. A mountain range of creative work (hundreds of fire department Web pages and thousands of fire department pictures) have been lost, but that is the way things go sometimes, I guess.

I am freezing the Web sites and all work on the reservation until I can get my (unrelated) 1,000-day-old COPYRIGHT DISPUTE with the Sycuan Casino resolved....
June 8, 2008:
GEHS IHC Division Chief Ray Ruiz Sr. resigned from the Sycuan Fire Department to pursue other career opportunities. Mr. Ruiz's active leadership and participation on producing the SYCUANFIRE and GEHOTSHOTS web sites will be greatly missed by the founding webmaster best of luck to you, Ray.

Uploaded SYCUANFIRE.COM under leadership and inspiration was provided by GEHS DIVISION CHIEF RAYMOND RUIZ SR.
October 12, 2007:
Funding for GEHOTSHOTS.ORG was hit and miss since my last post, but we managed to grow the site by working on our own time, including Ray and Juan paying for my time out of their own pockets, and some work on the Sycuan-BIA clock. I am happy to say I am back to work on the clock and look forward to completing old pages and building new pages.
April 14, 2005:
GEHOTSHOTS.ORG was uploaded with a contracted budget to build a basic website, up to 25 pages. The site's principal leadership and inspiration was provided by Battalion Chief RAYMOND RUIZ SR, with an active participation by Lead Captain 63a JUAN MENDEZ.
Original crew site www.handcrew.com consisted of one SPEC Home Page and was built and uploaded by G BALLARD. We never got a budget and the site was expired after the initial one-year server subscription.

Dear staff, families and fire fighters,
What a thrill it has been for me serving your community, and being a part of Chief Murphy's fire fighting programs.
After 20 years with Sycuan, I can tell you it has been a meaningful and life-changing experience for me.
I've archived a few pages of your blogs, movies and pictures on KUMEYAAY.INFO to preserve the historical record.
Very truly yours,
GARY G. BALLARD
