Hello again, fellow Creekers.

As a reminder, there are two events this Saturday. The Annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Christopher Creek Homeowners Association is at 2 p.m., Saturday, March 23. The event is located on Columbine Road across from the Ashby Pasture. There will be lots of prizes for kids age 10 and under. For more information contact Irma Armenta at (928) 478-4753.

Also, this Saturday the Christopher Kohl’s FireBelles are having a “Bake and Book Sale” at the Tall Pines Market from 10 a.m. to noon. All proceeds go to the “Training Fund” for new department members. Anyone wanting to donate baked goods can drop them off today, Friday, March 22 at Tall Pines. For more info you can call Linda at (928) 478-4011.

Since my last article, people have contacted me regarding the massive power outages from APS March 8 through March 10. For others of you that might be concerned with the amount of power outages we have you may e-mail, call (602) 371-7171, or fill out their online form at info/contactus/default.html.

It seems like the Christopher Creek area gets more than its fair share of outages.

In Pinetop-Lakeside, Show Low, Alpine, and Greer, where they have more snow and more trees, they rarely have interruptions. Reliable power is of course essential to residents and businesses, in particular the elderly or anyone with medical equipment or devices.

Plus, in our area many folks run off of wells and no power also means no water.

Some old friends happened to be in town recently. Shirley Broadston and other locals went and visited the Landmark Restaurant and also took a look at the renovated Tall Pines Market. Mike Jelinek, owner of the wonderful Tall Pines Market (and everyone’s friend) was kind enough to give them a tour of the market and the old station.

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: info 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.

Thanks again for reading the column.
