Important To Keep Properties Free Of Yard Debris


Hello again fellow Creekers.

Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona has proclaimed the week of March 27 through April 2 Wildfire Awareness Week in Arizona.

This year it is expected that the El Niño will weaken significantly. That means we can expect a hotter and dryer summer. The good news is that we should have less wind. In fact, the National Weather Service has predicted little to no measurable rain between now and the end of July. With hotter, dryer weather, we can expect more wildland fires to start.

Therefore, we once again are urging everyone to clean up all loose pine needle duff. Also, prune up all your trees and bushes, and keep all the grass and weeds short. This will help us protect your home and property. The next CKFD board meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., April 11. Consult the local postings for more details.

Brenda Slapnicka is offering yoga classes at Kohl’s Ranch. The classes started in March and are going great. It is a beginner-friendly, hatha-based yoga class. This is a great class for anyone looking to tone their body, relieve some stress, anxiety, fatigue or insomnia. Classes are $10 for someone just wanting to drop in. Anyone interested in the appropriately named Yoga-Rave should call Brenda at 928-978-1861 or e-mail her at

As always, I do need your help with content and stories! For anyone wanting to submit information from the Christopher Creek area for inclusion in our weekly article, please e-mail me at: Any submitted pictures must be full-size (typically around 1MB per picture). The cutoff time for inclusion in Friday’s article is close of business on Monday.
