Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I hope everyone remembers that special someone in your life. This is the day to show them how you feel about them. Send them flowers. Buy them chocolates, or maybe a stuffed animal. Many will cook dinner for that special someone and many will go out to eat. Whatever you do have a Happy Valentine's Day.

Fire board meeting
At Monday night's fire board meeting, Lew Levenson, executive director for RPAP -- Regional Payson Area Project, had a briefing for the purpose to develop more effective coordination among fire districts cooperating with the RPAP, as coordinated through the Arizona Partnership for Forest Health. For those of you not familiar with RPAP, it is the organization in charge of the brush pit. RPAP also has given our fire department two chain saws for residents to use to clear their property. If you would like to use one, you can go down to Station 51 and sign a disclaimer. You will be showed how to use it and the department will want to see what you will be cutting. Levenson said it would be helpful if we had a Red Cross volunteer in our area. If you are interested and can attend some training sessions, give Levenson a call at (928) 472-7175.
RPAP meets monthly at Gila Community College. Give Levenson a call for more details.
