Credit union honored

The Arizona Credit Union League (ACUL) awarded Advocate of the Year to Paul B. Stull, senior vice president of marketing at Arizona State Credit Union, at the 2010 ACUL Annual Meeting.

The Advocate of the Year award highlights Stull’s commitment to credit union political advocacy at the state and federal level. The award is named in honor of R.C. Robertson, retired president of Arizona State Credit Union.

“The Arizona Credit Union League works collaboratively with the credit unions of Arizona to serve more than 1.6 million members. Paul is a leader in credit union political advocacy and, as a member of the Legal and Legislative Committee, has made it a top priority to build key relationships with legislators to further the credit union cause,” said Scott Earl, president of Arizona Credit Union League and Affiliates.

Stull leads Arizona State Credit Union’s fund-raising activities and the credit union is the top contributor to the CULAC Payroll Deduction Program in Arizona.

The credit union also contributes many resources, including engaging staff and credit union members on key legislative issues such as interchange fee legislation, pay day lending and member business lending.

“We’re honored to be part of the Arizona Credit Union League, and to be recognized for the efforts of Paul’s contributions in political advocacy for all credit unions,” said David E. Doss, president of Arizona State Credit Union. “Everything we do as a credit union, and as a league, is to benefit and create better experiences for each and every member we serve.”

New horse camp opens

The Heber-Overgaard Chamber of Commerce is hosting a horse camp at Navajo County’s Tall Timbers Park on Highway 260. This is a great opportunity for Arizona trail riders to experience riding in a truly historic area while camping in a secure, comfortable camp with rest rooms, water, a ramada and ponderosa pines. This is an in-town horse camp, in the Sitgreaves forest.

This is the home of the renowned Heber wild horses. Elk, deer and turkey abound.

The Rodeo-Chediski Fire missed the Horse Camp. The camp is nestled in tall pines. The riding area, in general, has not been scarred by the fire. But, you will be able to see what a forest fire can do.

Aside from the basic amenities, this is a “bare bones” group campground. There is plenty of space for parking, but no designated “campsites.” No pens for horses. You can bring your portable pens, tie to your trailer, put up a picket line. It’s up to you. If you like to camp in a tent, you will have to cross over the fence, leaving the park and going into the forest. Tenting in the forest is OK, but no tenting in the park. Your horse can stay in the park.

The park will be open seven days a week. The fee for per day is $12 per rig (a rig being a hauling vehicle and trailer.)

You will take your trash and manure with you when you leave. The camp will supply plastic bags if needed. There is a garbage compactor less than a mile away if you don’t want to take it all home.

Special weekends: July 9-11, Aug. 13-15 and Sept. 10-12.

Guided group ride on Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. with independent riding all three days, any time.

Though this horse camp will not require reservations, we would appreciate your contacting us for the special weekends. Phone: (928) 595-0384, (928) 595-1072, or e-mail and advise how many in your group.
