Memorial Day Was One Wet Weekend


I think that was the wettest Memorial Weekend I have ever seen.

The campers were coming out of the forest trying to find a dry place to sleep and the problem was it was a holiday and everyone was all booked up.

Some people were loving the cold and rain and others were very disappointed because they wanted to fish. Woods Canyon Lake had several inches of snow and I saw a lot of people dressed in shorts and flip flops. Not a good combination for snow.

I guess they did not listen to Cory Mclowsky, weather man for Fox 10 News.

He told everyone if you were headed for the Rim Country to take everything you own from flip flops to snow shoes to parkas. Well, the holiday is over and so is the rain. We are liking the sun and nice weather.

Homeowners support Jim Oliver

The Christopher Creek Homeowners had their May meeting Saturday, May 24 and the homeowners voted to support the appointment of Jim Oliver to become the administrator of the fire district.

A message was sent to the three county supervisors informing them of the action and support that the community has for Jim Oliver. The petition was turned in on Tuesday with the majority of the district in favor of Jim Oliver.

In other action at the Christopher Creek Homeowners' meeting, the homeowners showed their support of the CKFD by donating $2,000. The money most likely will be used to purchase new radios, which are desperately needed.

Kids clean up the creek day

Don't forget the kids clean up the creek day at 10 a.m. June 7 at the walking bridge.

They need adults to help supervise the kids. Come out and enjoy the days and give the kids a chance to clean up around the creek.

The kids will be grouped into teams and each will be assigned an area.

They will have a hot dog and soda lunch after all their hard work.

Hunter Creek Homeowners Association will also have there clean up day on June 7. A meeting at 9 a.m. will have three speakers. Someone from Christopher/Kohl's Fire Department, Payson Fire Department and the Arizona Forest Department. Potluck is at noon at the water tower on Elk Circle.

Ladies bring your favorite covered dish. Paper products, dessert and drinks will be provided. Clean your yards and leave your debris by the road and a crew of hard working men will pick it up.


Jerry Fisher will be adding another candle to his cake on May 30, as will my husband, Frank Marazza, whose cake is getting a little crowded. Susan Rhodes of Hunter Creek will be celebrating on June 1, and Sandra Coolidge will have another birthday on June 4. Wishing all of you a happy birthday.
