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.

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.

BC 4th of July a Red-White-and-Blue Winner

jensen4th_3The annual parade and picnic for July 4th in Rollins Park went off like a firecracker,  with 350-400 attendees eating pancakes and sausage, hot dogs, and ice cream.  What an exuberant celebration!

Peter Jensen, President of sponsoring BC Kiwanis club,  couldn’t have been prouder when the parade marched by, featuring daughter Junior Grand Marshal Abigail Jensen representing both her family and the community.  Daily Bugle columnist Bill Helm, our personal favorite journalist, featured Abigail in his column July 3rd.

Grand Marshal Verna Shafer, the original designer of Sycamore Park, was also featured in a Bugle column citing her lifetime contributions to the community.   American Legion Post 93 Riders of Camp Verde started off the parade, and the audience sang, saluted, cried, and cheered when the national Anthem was played.

The worducksld-renowned duck race at Sycamore Park was, of course, the next highlight of the day. Prizes of all sorts were won by duck sponsors, and kids of all ages had a wonderful time.

Here is Ray of Ray’s Handyman, the fountain guy, in front of the newly renovated fountain, which is back to its bubby condition at the center of the park.ray2

This Weekend in Beaver Creek 4/13/2018

Dear Neighbors
 
Tomorrow, Saturday, is the usual second Saturday of the month FREE food bank in the early AM at Beaver Creek School.  There is always some fine produce and some bread and meat in addition to other items.  Also the Second Saturday Hike sponsored by the Beaver Creek Trails Coalition begins at 9 AM from the Forestglen Trail Head at the southern end of Wickiup Mesa. The special guest host for this one is Master Gardener Jane Kennedy.  Additional information is below.
Below are three media releases.  The first has all the details about the sad black cows at night versus vehicles on Cornville Rd.  Fortunately the humans walked away but the cows and vehicles were not so lucky….  The scarlet macaws are still on display the last Sunday of each month at 10 AM through August at Tuzigoot.  And finally, it’s the time of year that roadwork begins.  Information is below about work on I-40 and I-17 near Flagstaff.  There are open house dates at the Flagstaff ADOT facility where more project information will be available.

Vehicle Collisions with Cows on Cornville Road- Open Range IssuesNoted
***
YCSO Media Release
Background – Ranch hands from the Apache Maid Ranch, based in Cornville, Arizona, ran cattle during the day from the west side of Cornville Road to the east side of Cornville Road for grazing purposes. Because not all cows were transferred over to east side of the road during the day, there was distress among the heard causing the mother cows to knock down or jump portions of the fence in an attempt to get back to their calf’s on the other side of the road.
The Incident -
The initial call came into YCSO on April 7, 2018, around 8:30 pm, regarding black cows in and along Cornville Road between mile marker 8-11. No cows where located after searching for 20-30 minutes.
At 9:45 PM, deputies were dispatched to the same area regarding 3-4 black cows roaming in the roadway. While deputies were attempting to move them off the roadway, a passing motorist informed them of a collision between a van and a cow near mile marker 9. Deputies contacted the driver and saw the front end of her van had been smashed and the windshield shattered. The cow was dead. The driver was not injured.
While deputies conducted traffic control due to a lane closure pending arrival of ranch hands and a tow truck, another collision occurred involving a cow and vehicle nearby on Cornville Road. This was a minor collision with little damage to the vehicle and non-life threating injuries to the cow who ran off.
At 1:45 AM on April 8, 2018, a third cow vs. vehicle collision occurred around mile 9 on Cornville Road. This collision involved a small truck headed towards Cornville and one black cow. There were three male occupants inside of the truck during the time of the collision. After the cow was struck, another passing vehicle struck the cow again. The cow was pronounced dead at the scene. The second vehicle involved was not damaged. Fire personnel arrived on scene to check on the occupants involved in the incident. All were treated and released. Apache Maid Ranch personnel were contacted again regarding the latest collision.
A fourth and final collision involving another cow and vehicle took place a short time later. This vehicle was heavily damaged on the passenger side quarter panel. The woman driving worked for a local newspaper delivery service. Fortunately, she did not sustain any injury, but was just shaken up. She told deputies that while driving on Cornville Road, she noticed the emergency lights and then suddenly realized a black cow was in the roadway and collided. The cow ran off and she thought it best to continue towards the emergency lights and contact deputies to report the incident.
Fortunately, none of the drivers and passengers involved required hospitalization.
Additional deputies arrived and traffic control points were set to prevent further collisions and allow ranch hands to reunite all cows into common area.
OPEN RANGE -
Yavapai County falls under the Open Range concept – see definition below. Yavapai County has no ‘No-Fence’ districts which means the Open Range concept applies throughout the County and the liability from a collision causing the death of an animal will likely rest with the driver.
In a No-Fence district, liability generally falls on the livestock owner. (See ARS 3-1422. Publication of order forming no-fence district – The order of the board of supervisors that a no-fence district be formed shall be published once each week in a newspaper published in the county for four successive weeks, and from and after completion of the publication, no fence shall be required around the lands in the no-fence district, and it shall be unlawful for livestock thereafter to run at large in the district).
If a residential property owner does not live in such a district, the property owner is required to fence out livestock on their land using a ‘lawful fence’ – see below for details.
What is “Open Range”?   (reference Arizona State Land Department at https://land.az.gov/content/what-open-range ).
This question is frequently asked by motorists involved in automobile accidents with livestock on a roadway, or by owners of private land in rural subdivisions whose ornamental plants are eaten by livestock from adjoining State Trust grazing land.
The answer is not easily found. The Arizona Department of Agriculture’s Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 3, Article 8 (No-Fence Districts), contains nine separate statutes that comprise the open range laws of the State. A motorist who has been involved in an accident and wants to know if a particular location is “open range” should contact the County Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors is the entity that has the authority to designate No-Fence Districts. If an area is not within a No-Fence District, it is open range. The Board of Supervisors keeps the records for such designations. (ARS 3-1421-1422).
The landowner who is concerned with livestock damaging plants and other private property, has an obligation to fence his/her private land with a lawful fence to keep animals out. Having a lawful fence is necessary in any action to recover damages due to trespassing animals. (ARS 3-1427).
YCSO staff is working with Apache Maid ranch staff to mitigate the issues which includes secure fencing and signage along roadways in these grazing areas.
SACRED SCARLETS TO HOLD MONTHLY DEMONSTRATIONS AT TUZIGOOT
 
For over 1000 years, Scarlet macaws have dazzled people of the southwest.  Their brilliantly colored plumage and large size inspire curiosity in all who gaze upon them.  Remains of macaws have been documented in early archaeological excavations at both Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments.  Many visitors are impressed when they learn these exotic birds were traded into the Verde Valley, and farther north, from hundreds of miles South into modern day Mexico.  It is the intent of the National Park Service to increase visitor awareness of this unique part of history in the Verde Valley.  In partnership with Sacred Scarlets we hope to leave an impression on visitors, allowing them to make a meaningful connection to our sites.
Sacred Scarlets will be extending their monthly demonstrations at Tuzigoot National Monument on the last Sunday of each month at 10am, through August 25
th, 2018.   Sacred Scarlets presents lectures and demonstrations featuring a young, beautiful captive-bred scarlet macaw. These lectures and demonstrations address conservation as well as the scarlet macaw’s fascinating history in American Southwest culture.
Kelley Taylor, Founder of Sacred Scarlets, presents these amazing birds as ambassadors for their protection in the wild while sharing their long, rich, sometimes mysterious and often unknown history in the American Southwest. To learn more, please visit www.sacredscarlets.org .
There is no additional fee to attend the demonstration, but normal fees apply. Tuzigoot National Monument accepts all federal interagency passes including annual, senior, military, access, volunteer, park annual, and Every Kid in a Park.  Each pass admits up to four adults.
Tuzigoot National Monument is located at 25 W Tuzigoot Rd, Clarkdale, AZ 86324.  For more information, please call 928-634-5564 or visit

This Week in Beaver Creek – 2/8/2018

Dear Neighbors
This is just a quick note to help us keep in mind the activities available in our local area for the weekend.
Our warm weather will start to cool off starting on Saturday (below 70 degrees) but is still good for the planned special hike with guest Matt Mulheran from the National Park Service.  On Sunday the temperature really drops and we will probably see a run of days with highs in the 50’s.  Looks like winter has finally arrived for a bit.  Saturday is also free food distribution morning at Beaver Creek School with lots of good vegetables expected in addition to some meat and other items.
Starting Saturday, those who have picked up burn permits may burn their slash when it is not windy.  There may be some gusts on Saturday, so please keep an eye out for weather changes.
Special events upcoming later this month are the Valentine’s Pot Luck at the Beaver Creek Adult Center, the Tea/Fashion Show/Auction by the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club in the Beaver Creek School Auditorium, and the STEAM Extravaganza and VV Habitat for Humanity Workshop both at Beaver Creek School.

Beaver Creek eNews 11/18/2017

Dear Neighbors
 
We’re looking at another beautiful week in Beaver Creek.  The sunny highs are expected to be in the upper 60’s and lower 70’s and cold enough for a little heat at night.  Skinks and tortoises are hibernating and the scorpions are coming inside.  (A black light hunt for those mean insects is a particularly good idea this time of year.)
This is a wonderful weekend to be active.  Free food including lots of cantaloupes is available in the early AM today at Beaver Creek School.  The Saturday hike will be led by Stan Mish, the president of the Beaver Creek Trails Coalition.  If you have any questions about the construction of the Wickiup Mesa Trails, don’t miss this particular hike.
Since November is Native American Heritage month, several special programs are scheduled at Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot.  Please take a look at the National Park Service flyer below.  The bird walk at Montezuma Well is also today.  Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments will close at 3 PM on November 23, Thanksgiving Day.  This includes all three units-Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well in Rimrock, and Tuzigoot in Clarkdale.  All units will resume normal operating hours on November 24, 8 AM to 5 PM.
Later this month, everyone is invited to a free Thanksgiving Dinner from 2 to 4 PM at Grace Community Lutheran Church.  Another trail hike is scheduled and the Kiwanis Christmas House opens at the Beaver Creek Gasmart on the 30th.
