  3. It sure would be helpful if the date was posted where it can easily be seen on various pages, ie; the DEQ's Air Quality Index. Also, I like the photo from Skinner's Butte, but it's labeled as 2017 which causes a little confusion as today's date isn't posted anywhere obvious on the web site. Thanks for all your volunteer efforts.
