Oregon crews to join shuttle debris search.
Salem firefighters will use grid skills to find Columbia wreckage.
My mom and dad both told me that she was going to be heading out to do this, but I didn't think she'd get famous for it! Granted, Salem is a smaller town (100,000), but this is pretty big news to me and makes me extremely proud. Way to go Mom!!

Effie Frazier (left) of the Salem district Bureau of Land Management fire crew, weighs her pack Thursday before heading to Texas to search for pieces of the space shuttle Columbia. Each member is permitted to bring 65 pounds, but Frazier's pack was 3 pounds too heavy. BLM surveyor Bob Aarseth holds the scale and crew boss Barb Raible (right) looks on.
