This Week in Beaver Creek 9/10/2018

Dear Neighbors
Lots of good news this week!  Deuce the dog was found at VVHS and is back at home.  This chip sealing got off to a slow start and is not proceeding in the expected order, but Cactus Asphalt is doing a much better job than we had from the last chip sealing work done in our area.  Before your street is chip sealed, a “Notice to Residents” flyer will appear at your home which has the dates to NOT park in the street.  Meanwhile, enjoy this nice beginning fall weather!
On Thursday at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station the annual Kiwanis Donation Spaghetti Dinner will be from 5 to 7 PM.  Kiwanians and Kiwanis student clubs invite you to come spend an evening visiting with us.  At lunch time on Tuesday, the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club meets for the first time this fiscal year and has a special guest speaker from Out of Africa.  On Saturday, a monarch butterfly survey is being completed at Montezuma Well.  If you’d like to participate, the instructions to register are below.  Also on Saturday morning, the Food Bank at Beaver Creek School will be open. Other clubs and organizations are meeting again starting this month.  Please check out the schedule below.
Upcoming special events for later this month are the Shred-A-Thon, the Chili Cook-Off and free prostate screening.
It’s cooling off a little and the sky is beautiful.  So we hope to see you out & about.
Celebrating the wonderful month of September,

Where we are in a big world

Lake Montezuma, Arizona, is a teeny, tiny town or maybe a gistmedium-sized village in a big world.  When I came here several years ago, my first stop was the Post Office.  I wanted to ask whether my new home was in Lake Montezuma (86342), or Rimrock (86335).  I was warmly greeted by  Assistant Postmistress Tre. There was no big line for service in this Post Office, no red rope barrier hanging from yellow plastic posts. Tre soon introduced me to Postmistress Lisa as well.  These two charming and friendly ladies explained to me that, although I live within 100 feet of the Lake Montezuma Post Office, my address could be either Rimrock or Lake Montezuma, and that I did not need to put up a mailbox, as there is no mail delivery to my door.  They proceeded to rent me a PO Box, though they said I could also get a box from the Rimrock Post Office if I preferred.  Hmmmm. . .

 

Now, this might have discouraged some people, but to me it was absolutely perfect!  I had rented my new home on Craigslist, and stumbled blindly into a place where even Google maps could not quite locate me, Bing was unsure of my zipcode, and Qwest maps wasn’t altogether clear that my street existed at all.  To the USPS big digital database, my new location was strictly unknown, physical whereabouts optional.  Directions to relatives do not include “turn left at the 3rd streetlight”, because, of course, that would be three  streetlights beyond this place.

 

I have since learned that Rimrock works for deliveries, Lake Montezuma works for Post Office Box mail only, and Beaver Creek might be another option for my community moniker. Beaver Creek is inclusive of McGuireville as well as Rimrock and Lake Montezuma. Several thousand people call Beaver Creek home.

 

It’s not exactly rural, though it’s unincorporated.  Lake Montezuma itself has a wonderful restaurant, and there are several others, as well as two discount stores, several antique and thrift shops, a feed store, Montezuma Well, first class hiking trails, and three gas stations within five miles.  There are schools and a very good library in Rimrock, several churches, very active community organizations, some stop signs, and from time to time a bar or liquor store opens and closes.  No grocery store, but the gas stations and discount stores do what they can to fill that need.  There are rumors of a grocery/deli coming to Rimrock. There once was a big golf course with a restaurant and bar here, and there are always rumors that it will become active again.  Meanwhile, visitors keep looking for the big lake, which is really a nice big pond with dozens of ducks and geese.  Wet Beaver Creek is a fully functioning, beautiful, clear creek, and we have two parks, a big one on Beaver Creek and a small one in front of the Post Office.

The friendly ladies at the Post Office are a daily delight. They know every resident’s name, the names of their kids and dogs and cats, mothers and dads, aunts and uncles. They assist some of us in and out of the lobby and down and up the front steps, even when the occasional wanderer arrives in pajamas and is unsure how to get back home.  They somehow find my lost packages, and they call me when my puppy gets loose and runs around the park without me. They know exactly where we are in the world!  Thank you both so much for making life in a small place just terrific. You are truly good neighbors.

PS to USPS:  I wanted to be sure not to say anything which would cause USPS anxiety in this post office, so I looked up what I think is the appropriate rule in a manual here.  I believe that Handbook PO-209 for Retail Operations says it nicely on page 8:

The Post Office lobby is the principal business office of the Postal Service. For many customers, the lobby is their close-up view of Postal Service operations; therefore, its appearance, convenience, and efficiency directly affect the Postal Service’s public image. The perfect transaction includes clean lobbies that are stocked with forms and supplies and professionally attired, friendly retail professionals who are knowledgeable about the products and services offered by the Postal Service and know how to match these to our customers’ needs each and every time. The retail professional must follow the GIST (Greet, Inquire, Suggest, and Thank) model during every retail transaction conducted.

I guess I could say more, but you get the GIST.

 

 

 

eNews 7/9/2018

Dear Neighbors
Grand Marshal Verna Shafer & BC Kiwanis President Peter Jensen
What a wonderful 4th of July we had and now the monsoons are beginning!  We’re all sure hoping for some good rains and more water in the creek.  However, the ducks did make it through the channel that is still running.  Thank you to the businesses, organizations and individuals who donated more than $7000 worth of prizes this year.  The prize winners are being called today, so the prize list will be published during this week.  Thank you to all who celebrated in Rollins Park and made it the best get together to date.  Please don’t miss Bill Helm’s photo gallery “2018 Beaver Creek Independence Day Celebration”.  He captured the enjoyment of the event.  https://www.cvbugle.com/photos/galleries/2018/jul/05/2018-beaver-creek-independence-day-celeb/
And Sunshower Rose has posted a tribute to Friends of Beaver Creek Library at the celebration on youtube:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs2y_29zW2c&feature=youtu.be
Local availability of food is a theme of this week.  In addition to the second Saturday of themonth Free Food Distribution at Beaver Creek School, the Rimrock Farmers Market starts Wednesday evening at the Verde Valley Honey store on Beaver Creek Rd.  Candy Hammond, RRF Director, gave us a taste of what’s to come by providing 195 servings of watermelon at the Beaver Creek 4th of July Celebration and had that colorful and creative parade entry.
And continuing about local creativity and ingenuity, two more authors have books available on Amazon.  Both authors have been long time residents and volunteers in the community.  Carol Rotta now lives in a senior complex in Prescott.  Her book is about her early years homesteading in Alaska.  Carol Penfield’s new offering is a sequel entitled Lucina’s Destiny which follows Midwife of Normandy and continues the historical saga of the Dupres family in the 17th century.

The Good Things Happening at Beaver Creek School
 
From Principal Katrina Sacco:
  • Our Veterans Day concert showcased our students’ talents and hard work, all classes did an excellent job!
  • Our students also honored veterans and developed a deeper understanding of the sacrifices made by others who ensure safety and security to all U.S. citizens.
  • Mrs. Guth was honored in the Bugle as a remarkable teacher. She is a wonderful asset to our school, and this recognition was a great tribute to her work.
  • Mrs. Cowan, Mrs. Martinez, Mrs. Wheeler, Mr. Worden and myself met with Pastor Ken Miller to discuss how they can support our school. They are working with us to bring more supplies and books to our classrooms, and we are very grateful!
  • Our November staff training focused on the effective use of the data we receive from NWEA’s MAP Growth assessment.
  • We learned how to use it to make meaningful improvements in our grouping and instruction.
  • Our new instructional media program, Moby Max, is gaining in popularity around campus and it is helping teachers differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of all students.
  • Our crew welcomes Mrs. Laura Bleak as a new fifth grade paraprofessional. She comes to us with a great passion for improving the lives of children and we are delighted to have her.
  • The American Legion donated new flags for our campus, and John Maddox spoke to our students about the symbolism and importance of the flags.
  • This was a great way to lead into our Veterans Day education.
From Margee Cowan, College & Career Readiness:
  • The field trip to the Junior Achievement Center in Tempe was once again a success for the 7th graders in Biztown.
  • This is truly life-changing as students learn how to maneuver through life in the simulation given to them.
From Allie Wheeler, Athletics, Art and the 21st Century Learning Program
  • Our volleyball team finished the season first in the league and took second at the league tournament.
  • This allowed them to go to small school state volleyball tournament, where they placed 4th against the best small schools in northern Arizona.
  • This is the first time for Beaver Creek since 2004. Shelly Warfield was awarded first-team all-tournament and Makela Martinez was awarded second-team all-tournament at the small state tournament.
  • The 21st Century Tutoring has begun, we are serving about 40 students during this time.
  • Our focus is on math and reading instructional interventions.
  • Art: 6 and 7 grade finished their interpretation of Van Gough’s sunflowers. They turned out beautiful.
 
From Superintendent Karin Ward:
  • As we count our blessings this Thanksgiving, for me this school district and every department is blessing.
  • Patricia Garitson the service manager has a great staff focused on feeding students well-balanced meals.
  • Diana Iverson, and her crew balances a spotless campus (the Yavapai Health department raves about it at the annual inspection each year), and transporting students safely on the buses to and from school and on trips.
  • Katrina Sacco and her school team work to make sure each student has a quality education that meets his or her own needs.
  • The staff uses data to drive teaching and learning decisions.
  • The office staff under the direction of Sharon Brooks continues to take care of everything from band aids to payroll.
  • We are appreciative of the community for the continued support to our school and children.
  • We hope people remember Beaver Creek School during tax credit season.

Vintage (RR BBQ) Closed as of 11/9/2016

 

Yesterday the RR BBQ Restaurant hosted 40+ members of the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club and was bustling with energy throughout Tuesday.  Today it is closed off.  A sandwich board blocks the driveway which states, “Sadly, due to recent changes in employment laws, we cannot afford to continue in business”.
 
In late spring Mulligan’s Grille LLC owned and managed by Shane and Kathy Watts began the process of a zoning change for the RR BBQ parcel to hard-zoned Commercial 2-35 (Commercial; General Sales and Service).  On September 21, 2016, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors approved upgraded zoning.  Thus, the Watts are ready to begin a new endeavor at this location.
 
With the grille’s closure, scheduled meetings and activities are being relocated starting with the special FBCL meeting that would have used the building on Sunday.  Therefore:
 
FRIENDS OF BEAVER CREEK LIBRARY’S ANNUAL MEETING WILL BE HELD AT THE BEAVER CREEK ADULT CENTER THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2:00 TO 4:00 PM DUE TO THE SUDDEN CLOSURE OF RR BBQ.
ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS MEETING, PLEASE CONTACT JUDY MCBRIDE, 567-4648 OR DARLA MELCHER, 592-0792.
