La Pine says goodbye to a local fire captain. Approximately 300 people showed up at La Pine High School for a 2 p.m. memorial. It was a mix of firefighters and citizens. Firefighters showed up from all over the state of Oregon to say goodbye to Fire Captain James Palmer, 37. Palmer was remembered for helping others; for being the drummer in a rock band, and most importantly, as a family man who would always put his kids first.  A former chaplain of the La Pine Fire Department who is now in the Albany area, says he watched Palmer’s career and he was a pleasure to work with. After the Saturday afternoon memorial, a procession of fire trucks from as far away as Baker City rolled past the La Pine Fire Station in a silent procession. The sign outside the station said goodbye to Captain Palmer and that he will be missed. He was killed a week ago Friday in a two-car accident on Highway 97.
