Hi-Desert Star Column #199

Our little Community is holding the monthly Potluck Party today; instead of the usual last Saturday of the month. While the theme for Potluck will be Thanksgiving, we are encouraged to bring food which has nothing to do with Turkey Day.

Beautiful sunrise over the Center. Come check it out!
Here’s wishing everyone a wholeheartedly wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We have so much to be thankful for, living here in our most splendiforous neck-o’-the-woods! May you enjoy unity, companionship and all that is loving this Thanksgiving. Big hugzzz!

There’s been a lot of complaining about the state of our dirt roads. Coyote Valley road is truly appalling where it goes up the hill and around the corner. I drive that way to College every weekday and my poor little truck is so battered from all the bumping, that the bed has literally ripped away from its moorings and is hanging on by tape and an oak board across the back! A Neighbor wrote a letter of complaint and here’s an excerpt of the answer received from the County:
“Due to the additional cost of storm repairs from the previous year and this year we had to suspend grading for the month of October in Copper Mountain due to insufficient  funds. The grading will resume on Nov. 24. Also we are reducing the monthly grading schedule from 32 hours to 24 hours in order to build  up a cash contingency for use in case of additional storm activity or other unforeseen events. 
The grading contractor has been instructed to concentrate on the primary roads at this time. I have forwarded your request to the grading contractor and he will make every effort to grade other roads if time permits.” 
It was also suggested that we post a speed limit of 25 mph, as this will supposedly cut down the wear and tear on the roads.

The amazing Wonder Valley Musicfest was held at The Palms last Saturday; hosted by Ben Vaughn. He also hosts “The Many Moods of Ben Vaughn” radio show every Sunday at 3pm on Z107.7 and plays truly superb songs. So tune in and stay well!
