ve Boone and other past mascots a retirement ceremony in the upcoming academic year.The image of Denver Boone was originally designed by a Walt Disney artist and named by a UD student back in 1968 .The cartoony figure, which sports a scruffy beard and a raccoon skin cap, is reminiscent of the Daniel Boone character from the 1950s TV show based on the real-life pioneer.Boone was a legend of early American history and the archetypal hero of the American Western Frontier.Later, his image and legend fell victim to revisionist history as he became associated with the forceful displacement of Native Americans from their land.So how closely linked are Denver Boone and Daniel Boone?Any association of the Denver Boone caricature with America's pioneer hero, Daniel Boone, is misguided, said Randell Jones, historian and author of the book In the Footsteps of Daniel Boone.Mythology and Fess Parker aside, it is well documented that Daniel Boone never wore a coonskin cap. Neither did he wear a beard. Moreover, any exploits by him west of Missouri are speculative at best. GRANTS PASS, Ore. Wildfires burning in Oregon, Idaho and Montana are taxing national firefighting resources and helping to push spending past $1 billion for the year.The National Interagency Fire Center in Boise upped the national wildfire preparedness level Tuesday to the highest level for the first time in five years.The center lists two central Idaho wildfires as the country's top priorities, helping provide crews and resources for the Beaver Creek fire, which forced the evacuation of 1,250 homes in the resort area of Ketchum and Sun Valley and has cost nearly $12 million so far.Fire center official Steve Gage says they can't fill the requests for crews and equipment for all 48 fires that remain uncontained around the country.___Keith Ridler contributed to this report from Boise, Idaho.
