Hello again, fellow Creekers.
Christopher Creek’s own Jeff Daniels was the technical “wizard” behind the scenes of The Shelby School’s spring production of “The Wizard of Oz.” He ran the lights and sound for the show on Friday, May 3. He is pictured here with his granddaughters, Emma and Occean Helmick. Occean, a third-grader, plays a lively citizen of Emerald City. Emma, her fourth-grader sister, plays Dorothy’s happy-go-lucky companion — the Scarecrow! Elizabeth Fowler really did a lot to promote this event and I’m sure everyone who attended had a wonderfully entertaining time.
I have a couple more folks at the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department to introduce you to: Chad StLuka is originally from Palatine, Ill. What brought him up to the creek was the four seasons and his family was tired of the Valley. He’s been in the area for 10 years now and prior to being a firefighter he was in construction. His favorite hobbies are training, fishing and boating. His favorite thing about the area is the creek, the Rim views and working at the fire department while getting to know people in the area.
John Digman also works for CKFD as well as the Gila County Roads Department. He’s originally from Platteville, Wis. He was originally brought to Christopher Creek seeking out nice places to camp and to enjoy the various seasons. He originally moved here back in 1998 and if he wasn’t here he said his wife would want to be in Mexico on a beach, which also works for him. In the past John has worked with big trucks and heavy equipment. He likes woodworking, NASCAR and most anything out in nature. When I asked his favorite thing, he said his daughter who lives here and works over at the Tall Pines Market. A memorable time he says was living at CCMHP with Ken, Patty and Scotty, where they played a lot of jokes on each other.
