Update on Teen Spree from YCSO 2/18/2018

No Comments
Dear Neighbors 
Since the original report of a break in attempt in Montezuma Estates, five more instances possibly identifying the same suspects have been sent to us.  Dwight D’Evelyn, YCSO Media Relations Coordinator, reports: “I requested xtra patrol in the area. If suspicious activity is seen, please call the Sheriff’s Office (567-7710) first before posting/emailing the information to neighbors.
 
Also, would you PLEASE remind residents to LOCK THEIR CARS WHEN UNATTENDED, especially overnight. We cannot seem to get ahead of the many opportunist crimes allowed as a result of the failure to use such a simple crime prevention technique.”
 
We have two or three teenagers whose behaviors may lead to someone getting hurt or damage to property.  If you know who they are, please let YCSO know.  There needs to be an intervention soon for the safety of all.
The original report is at the bottom of this email and the other sightings follow.
Be safe!  Please lock your vehicle doors and home windows and doors.

Additional Reports of Possible Sightings in Lake Montezuma & Rimrock

Yesterday, 2-17, three young men ran across the rooftop of the Lake Montezuma Village Post Office and Adult Center. They were seen from behind.  Two may have been the ones from the original break in.  One wore a red hoodie.

 

On Saturday 2/17/18 in Montezuma Haven two teenagers opened our gate and came onto our property one came to our back door and knocked lightly, When the door was answered he asked if he could have fifty cents or a dollar.   A second individual had made his way toward the front of our house and was standing out of sight, when he was observed both individuals were advised to leave the property immediately.  Both subjects where wearing knee length shorts one had light colored hair and was dressed in camouflage wearing a gray hoodie.  The second subject had dark curly hair and was wearing a red head band.  The police were notified.

These two live in the neighborhood (Montezuma Estates). I see them walking around all the time. Kind of surprised me actually.  When my wife arrived home from work, she reminded me that the boy with the curly hair actually knocked on our door on Sunday, Jan 6th, just to ask me the time. He acted weird, and I thought it was strange, but never gave it another thought. Now I am a bit more suspicious of the activity, and realize that I haven’t seen them in a few days. They usually walk by the house daily.

The description of the two boys sound similar to a situation on last Sunday afternoon in the Lake Montezuma off Lakeview.
My friend gave me a copy of yesterday’s report about the attempted Break In – it caught my attention as on the night of January 28/morning 29 – someone went into my car, in my driveway and took my NFL 49er jacket (was reported to Sheriff).  What caught my attention was the red hoodie.  When talking with one of my neighbors on the 29th she told me that on the 28th, she got home from work between 11 and 11:30 and was on her patio when she saw 2 males walking up the road – one wearing a red hoodie – when she lit her cigarette they turned around and walked back they way they came.  I am thinking these two have a little crime spree going on.  I think everyone should be aware of what going on.

Break In Attempt in Montezuma Estates
NOTICE:  submitted by a Montezuma Estates resident in Rimrock  (Name on file)

2-12-18 

This morning two young men, possibly teenagers, tried to
break in through a window of our home on Kramer. They went removed the screen from the window before being confronted at the window.  Prior to this, they had rung the doorbell about 30 times. They have black hair, at least one with curly hair and darker skin.  One of them was wearing a red hoodie. The Sheriff’s office has been notified.

Please keep an eye out for them, and lock all your windows and doors, and call the Sheriff if you see or experience anything suspicious.

Dear Neighbors
Rain has been requested by the community and is expected to be received in Beaver Creek today and possibly on several other days this week.  Week long highs in the fifties and lows above freezing have been forecasted by NWS.  So please get your burn permits from the fire station and take care of your slash before more grows.
The LM Women’s Civic club is meeting tomorrow to enjoy lunch while collecting baby blankets and other items to donate to the hospital.  Their fun tea fundraiser will be on the 24th which will help to support community projects such as a scholarship to a Beaver Creek School student.  This weekend several activities and meetings are scheduled.  Of special note are the Beaver Creek Adult Center pot luck and the Habitat for Humanities Workshop to be held at BC School. 
Please check out the “Good Things are Happening at Beaver Creek School”.  The field trips, high school and college planning, and healthy activities scheduled by school staff and community volunteers are mind blowing to someone who still remembers the one kindergarten field trip and one 8th grade trip offered in the calendar crew’s schooling.
Up coming on March 1 is the annual Kiwanis Chili & Pie Dinner and on March 10, VV Ancestral Gardens supported by BC Kiwanis is sponsoring a Beaver Creek Rd cleanup.  More on these events next week.
The APS rate increase has been a hot topic for several months after many residents received nearly a doubling of electric bills which was not the advertised rate.  As it happens, it takes 25 review requests from the public to require the Arizona Corporation Commission to schedule a rehearing.  The initial hearing on the rate increase is scheduled for 2/15 at 1:30 PM.  It is a procedural conference for the formal complaint: Stacy Champion, et al, versus Arizona Public Service.
While the rehearing request on the APS rate increase has been in the works, APS requested on January 9 that the ACC approve a $119 rate reduction to customers to start on February 1.  The request is based on Federal corporation tax cuts.  No word yet on when ACC will schedule and approve this request.  Meanwhile, it is recommended that customers who have had particularly large rate increases call the number on their bills and make sure that the best rate category is being used for billing.
Happy for the chance of rain,

The Good Things Happening at Beaver Creek School
January 2018
 
News release:  Mrs. Karin Ward, Superintendent at Beaver Creek School
Our STEAM Extravaganza is rapidly approaching. It will be held on February 22. Students are working hard to understand and use the scientific method, and teachers are supporting their efforts through guided practice. Teachers are also organizing activities for parents, students, and community members.
 
Friday 2/9 will be the Verde Valley In-Service day for teachers. Beaver Creek School is hosting the discussion on new topics and trends in special education. We are also sending teachers to schools around the Verde Valley to learn and discuss ideas with other educators. This collaborative effort to grow as professionals gives us all a chance to reflect, learn, and revise our practice.
Beaver Creek School welcomed our new student teacher Mr. Jeff Reeves this quarter. He is working with Mrs. Cheryl Guth in her fourth grade class. He is doing a great job, absorbing information and supporting students daily.
Mrs. Allie Wheeler has been working with Mrs. Micca Martinez to get the 2018 season of Jr. Basketball up and running. Mrs. Martinez created the program and is helping to transition it to Mrs. Wheeler. They have both worked hard to make sure our kids have the opportunity to play. We are very excited to welcome first though fourth grade students to the 2018 season of Jr. Basketball. We have several parents volunteering to coach. Thank you to coaches and families for your cooperation and enthusiasm for this program.
Mrs. Pam Zahnzinger will be holding auditions for her upcoming drama production on 2/13 and 2/16. She is working on this performance as a partner with our 21st Century program. She put on a wonderful play last year. The district staff is  certainly happy to see her working with our kids once again.
Mrs. Betsy Ciminieri is forming a running club in partnership with our 21st Century program. She will use running to fuel conversations about healthy habits, keeping a balanced lifestyle and building self-esteem. Welcome Coach Betsy!
Baseball and softball season are off to a great start. Coaches Hardy, Kelley, and O’Brien are working with their players to build their teams. The players are excited to begin playing! Go Bobcats!
We have out third wellness week planned and we will have guest speakers from the Health Department discussing Healthy vs. Unhealthy relationships, Safe Dates, and dating abuse.  We have officer Godina in to talk to our students K-5 about personal safety.  Mat Force will be here to talk to our students about Life Skills that include self esteem/assertiveness. The Yavapai County Health Department will talk to 5th grade about puberty and the changes their bodies are going through.  Nurses will also keep our students current on their immunizations, check heights and weights, and scoliosis.  The staff will play the 8th grade in the annual staff versus 8th grade basketball game.  We will also be celebrating spirit week with a retro theme.  Our staff and students will be encouraged to dress in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s throughout the week.
The eighth grade toured both high schools in preparation for selecting where they will attend high school.  It is valuable for them to actually see the campuses and classes that are available to them.  It is always interesting to hear what specific opportunities and classes excite our students for next year.
On February 15th the fifth and sixth grade students get to attend Cinderella at Phoenix Symphony Hall.  This is a wonderful experience to broaden their horizons and to expose them to the fine arts, as well as, introduce all the jobs and careers that are related to the performing arts.
Upcoming field trips are to The Tempest, the Shakespeare play, the Renaissance Festival and The Maze, which is a hands-on experience related to teenage issues and concerns.
The Women’s Civic Club is once again offering a scholarship to graduating seniors who attended Beaver Creek School and live in the Beaver Creek area. The district is pleased that Mrs. Cowan is able to help some of our former students in their career and college choices.  Many begin their college careers at Yavapai College.  Our current students (7thand 8th) have already toured the campus and are aware of the programs that are offered there. This really helps them to make more educated choices that are personal and beneficial to them.
Our boys and girls basketball teams both made it to the small school State Tournament. What a wonderful accomplishment.  Go Bobcats! We have spirit yes we do!

This Week in Beaver Creek – 2/8/2018

No Comments
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.
