I just received word that a relatively new resident of Tonto Village has been missing since Feb. 7. The gentleman's name is Tim Tucker Adams and he lives on Johnson Boulevard in Tonto Village II. Tim supposedly left on foot from Tonto Village wearing a black coat, jeans and white sneakers. Adams is 5 feet, 11 inches, he weighs 175 pounds and has brown eyes and gray hair. He also wears glasses and has a mustache. If you have any information about this missing man, call Sgt. Terry Hudgens of the Gila County Sheriff's Office at (928) 474-2208.
Search and Rescue teams have been looking for any sign of Adams around the village this past week. Let's hope that he will be found safe and sound.
Tonto Village Fire District
Dave Miller and Jeff Shaw, two of the volunteer firemen from our fire district, just completed a Wildland Fire Safety refresher course and Pack Test to qualify for a Red Card. They are now able to assist in all wildland fires. There will be more volunteers from the department who will be taking the refresher courses this coming month. Congratulations to Dave and Jeff.

Birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
Eric Kirchhoefer of Tonto Village III celebrates a birthday on March 6. Theresa Meeker, of Tonto Village II and Scottsdale, will add another candle to her birthday cake on March 8, and, last but not least, Bill Snyder, my other half, will be another year older on March 9.
A very happy birthday to all of you.
Also, everyone needs to say special prayers for Phil Davenport of Tonto Village III. Phil has had another small stroke and he is still in the hospital in Scottsdale.
