Good Things at BC School 6/19/2019

No Comments
Dear Neighbors
Check out the good things below that are happening at Beaver Creek School, always so wonderful to see what are kids are experiencing!
On another note, Beaver Creek School is short one first grade teacher and needs housing for another one.  Superintendent Ward would work with someone who has a bachelor’s degree in another field who would like to get started in teaching and would get a lot of support and appreciation.  Please call 928-567-4631 if you are interested in the first grade position or have a lead on housing for the other teacher.
All the best,
. . . . . the calendar crew  
Good Things Happening at Beaver Creek School
 
During the last two weeks of school :
  •          The 5th-8th grade students enjoyed Bell Trail. The hike was amazing.!
  •          The  forty-five  7th and 8th grade students who earned the SunSplash enjoyed a fun day in Phoenix!
  •          The Western Theme Concert was fun for all to see!
  •          The play put on by 21st Century 4th-8th graders was well attended.
  •          Mrs Guth’s annual play is always fun to watch.
  •          The kindergarten graduation was joyful and energetic!
  •          The 8th grade graduation went well. The students really listened and worked as a team .
After school was out, we prepared for the College for Kids and Kinder Boot Camp.  Thirty students are attending College for Kids!  We had 3 students in Boot Camp but they are now ready to see kindergarten in August.  None of these students had been in preschool or Head Start.   And, Diana Iverson  is now on her three week vacation ( before retirement day of June 30) after a lovely lunch put on by the office staff on Friday, June 7!
We are enjoying having an office and a maintenance youth NACOG worker this summer.

Lots of Summer Events 6/11/2019

Dear Neighbors
With the arrival of mid June, the annual preparations for the Fourth of July Parade, Pancake breakfast, Celebration and Duck Race are in progress.  There is always interest in watching the parade, however we would like to see more participants in it.  Walkers are welcomed as well as motor vehicles and horses.  It’s a different experience doing the short route and doesn’t have to be anything fancy, though decorations and creativity are always appreciated.  Signing up can be done at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station or at the Beaver Creek Adult Center.
The potential Verde Connect road and bridge project is a hot topic around here.  The Beaver Creek Community Association has heard presentations from both Connect and Disconnect.  BCCA will meet from 3 to 4 PM on Monday, 6/24, in the Beaver Creek Adult Center to finalize the association comment.  BCCA would appreciate further comments from local residents directed to contact@BeaverCreekAZ.us or at the meeting. Yavapai County is holding public meetings tonight in Cottonwood and tomorrow night in Camp Verde to present the alternatives and to take public comments.  Further information on these is below.
There have been questions about when the fog sealing will take place on Montezuma Avenue and Lake Montezuma Rd.  It has been cancelled due to the product specified with the Asphalt Paving and Supply contract would not work on these roads.  Yavapai County will reschedule treatment of these roads in the future, probably using chip seal.
Duck Tickets Here
Duck Race tickets are for sale at many locations through out Beaver Creek.  Good prizes as usual and the profit supports local Beaver Creek Kiwanis projects throughout the year.  The fine summer activities are continuing at our local library.  This afternoon, Ancestry.com training is featured from 1 to 3 PM.
On the road again

Beaver Creek eNews 6/5/2019

Dear Neighbors
June is here and the temps have heated up. Looking at the low 90’s this week. The calendar crew’s two local favorites are in full bloom-the birds of paradise and the yuccas. Always a joy to see each summer!
Saturday morning at the Beaver Creek Adult Center is the monthly pancake breakfast from 8 to 10 AM followed by the semiannual Dump the Drugs. If you need to get rid of old or unneeded medications, please stop by and see Jeannette Estes and Deputy Alex Hawkins in the library portion of the Adult Center from 10 AM to Noon who will graciously assist you.
The summer library programs start this week at the Beaver Creek Library with interesting sessions for all ages. The schedule and flyers are below. Don’t be bored, please come make some new friends and learn something, too.
The annual Back to School BBQ at Beaver Creek School will be on August 1 this year. Lyndel Kelley, Administrative Assistant, is doing the planning and sends this invitation:
Dear Community Member:
          Beaver Creek School is planning its Annual Back to School Barbeque.  It is a perfect time for Community, School, and Local Agencies to come together and make information available.  The Back to School Barbeque will take place on Thursday, August 1st from 6:00 until 7:30 P.M.  Set up will begin at 5:30.
          We would like to extend an invitation to your group or agency to reserve a table at this event.  If you are interested please call Beaver Creek School at (928) 567-4631 or respond to this email with the name of your group or agency, contact name, and phone number.  Please respond by Monday July 17 if you are interested in having your group represented.
 
In preparation for the summer monsoon season for those who live near the creek or a large wash, please note the location of the two sandbag areas. One has a new entrance and the other has been relocated. The Rimrock location is at the back of the same lot next to the post office. Access it via the post office entrance and continue on the Beaver Creek Baptist parking lot and turn left. In Lake Montezuma, the Sycamore Park parking lot is no longer used. Instead, turn off Montezuma Ave onto Seneca Ln and you will see the sand location.

Free Saturday Bus Stops around BC

Free Local Transportation

BCT Saturday Van Route
 
The Beaver Creek Transit Saturday Van will run from 10 AM to 2 PM, starting and stopping in the lot across the street from the Ranch House parking lot. The Buggy will make five local loops in the Beaver Creek area stopping in Lake Montezuma, Rimrock and McGuireville. There is no charge. The driver, Roz, will not take donations on these runs. Also, please note that the Saturday Route is unable to take passengers needing to use the wheelchair lift or children under 5 requiring booster seats. Riders needing special accommodations may call 301-2749 to make reservations for transportation on other days. There will probably be schedule changes as Beaver Creek Transit gets more experienced with this route. Please bear with us as we learn.
This service is very much a community effort. Thank you to the Beaver Creek Community Association which purchased the buggy and to the Beaver Creek Adult Center which provides the nonprofit 501(c)3 partnership. Thank you to the Lake Montezuma Civic Club, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, the Yavapai Apache Nation and to the Kiwanis Key Club (high school students) who have provided the initial funding for the Saturday route. And last, but not least, heartfelt gratitude to Rask’s Auto Service on Beaver Creek Rd for keeping the van operating for the past 10 years. There would be no Saturday run without Rask’s preventive maintenance and resourceful repairs. Nor would there be without our drivers!

BCCA News & Dues Letter 5/13/2019

Hello, Members

May 13, 2019
Beaver Creek Community Association
When

3 PM
2nd Monday of each month

Where

Beaver Creek Adult Center
4250 E Zuni Way
Lake Montezuma, AZ 86342

Dear Members,
 
This is a news and dues letter. We are trying to save money on postage, so this year we’re doing business by email as much as possible. The household dues are still $25 or $35 if you would like to send a little extra to help more with the Rollins Park upkeep. The easiest way to send in dues is to use the PayPal at www.BeaverCreekAZ.us. The other two ways are to put a check in our mailbox behind the hostess desk in the Adult Center or to mail one to BCCA, PO BOX 5292, Lake Montezuma, AZ 86342. From way back the LM post office has been used. Please use its 86342 zip code. Some members have already paid, please disregard the request if you have done so, and catch up on the news. Also, if you purchased an ad in the business directory, your dues are covered for the year.
As always, we could use more help if you have a little time to spare. A couple of tasks that need to be done in the near future (besides paying the dues which help us to keep going) are volunteers to place the flag at Rollins park at half staff when required and to replace the flag when tattered. We will also need volunteers to attend the AZ State Transportation meeting in Cottonwood on July 19 to support us in our request for safety improvements at the McGuireville Interchange. The meeting will probably start at 9 AM; we don’t know the location, yet. Last month we sent a complaint about the tall weeds on the golf course to Yavapai County Development Services who that day sent a letter to the owners about that problem. We would like to report other problem lots due to the upcoming fire season being of particular concern. Please let us know! Also if you have a weed eater and some extra energy, it would be nice to help out a neighbor who can no longer cut weeds. To volunteer or send us information, please use contact@beavercreekaz.us.
Our web site has lots of information on it including meeting minutes and letters. Any time that you have a comment or question about a topic, please use the contact email and we’ll do our best to answer or get information to you. An update about some of the things that we’ve been doing follows.
Sincerely,
BCCA Board: 
Janet Aniol, president; Sharon Olsen, vice president; Ron  Melcher, secretary; Bob Burke, treasurer; Mike Nelson board member; Chris Nichol, web master
BCCA President’s Update May 13, 2019
 
The organizations that we are particularly affiliated with are all busy this month. The Beaver Creek Community Action Team (safety & health committee) has received its emergency cards (printing paid for by us) and is distributing them at meetings and placing them in locations such as the Adult Center and the Beaver Creek Library. Beaver Creek Transit has just started its Saturday local loop which provides bus service to our businesses. BCT recently received a check from the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club for $600+ which will cover about the first month of operation cost. The Beaver Creek Trails Coalition has its annual meeting this month on May 20  at 1 PM in the Adult Center. Please come see an excellent Power Point and find out what’s been happening with local trails.
BCCA secretary, Ron Melcher organized the replacement of the burned out light atop of our flagpole. Copper Canyon Fire & Medical responders wonderfully provided the equipment and expertise to get to the top of an unusually tall flagpole. (Flag photos courtesy of Ron)
 
The Beaver Creek Business Directory has been mailed to zip codes 86335 and 86342. We will do a mail out to those of you receiving mail in other zip codes in the next couple of weeks. The directory team who started from scratch to make this happen included Bob Burke, BCCA treasurer, Nancy Rowland, BCCA member, and Chris Nichol, BCCA web master.
I attended the AZ State Transportation Board meeting in Flagstaff last month and spoke to that board and ADOT engineers about our need for safety improvements at the McGuireville Interchange on I-17. The Yavapai County Director of Public Works, Dan Cherry, also spoke to the board about our issue (many thank you’s!!!). We need to follow up with many community members speaking about their dangerous experiences at the interchange during the July 19 meeting of the state board in Cottonwood.
At this time Yavapai County has budgeted $1.5 million dollars in fiscal 2022/23 for Public Works to improve safety at the dangerous curve on Beaver Creek Rd occurring prior to the entrance to Montezuma Well. The cost to the National Park Service will be about $250,000 for the cultural archeology excavation to be done prior to the road work.
I attended the Yavapai College Governing Board meeting in Cottonwood last month. The Call to the Public lasted more than an hour. The unanimous theme was that there needs to be more classes and programs offered in the VV, particularly in career and technology training. New college President Rhine is giving us some hope for a changed attitude toward out region. She has already added emergency food to the campus.
DR. RHINE ANNOUNCES THAT VICE PRESIDENT OF STRATEGIC INITIATIVES WILL BE HIRED TO FOCUS ON IMPROVING THE HEALTH OF COMMUNITY COLLEGE BY ADOPTING AN “OUTWARD MINDSET”.  Says that there will be an organizational shift where innovation, accountability, collaboration, equity, transparency, and engagement will become the essence of the Community College’s normal culture.

CC Fire & Medical Rescue, BC Transit News 5/11/2019

Bell Trail Technical Rescue

On May 9 at 12:57 pm Copper Canyon Fire & Medical was dispatched to a technical rescue call in the area of Bell Trail. The information received was the patient had fallen approximately 20 feet. the patient was located several miles up the trail in the wilderness area. It took crews time to make contact with the patient due to an extensive hike into the wilderness. With the help of YCSO a rescue helicopter was sent to assist crews with extricating the patient.
Copper Canyon Fire personnel began medical treatment and prepared the patient to be picked up by DPS ranger. The patient was successfully picked up by DPS ranger and brought to a landing zone to be transported by a medical helicopter. Yavapai County Sheriffs Office and Copper Canyon Fire set up and utilized a unified command system to coordinate the efforts and the YCSO Search and Rescue team was used to secure and set up a landing zone for all the helicopters.
