Hi-Desert Star Column, November 24, 2016

Our little Community Potluck Buffet took place last Saturday, November 19th, the weekend before Thanksgiving. Our very own Bob Deloyd attended this gourmet event at the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center.

Here’s what he said:
“I went to Potluck with my rice and cookies - I can’t cook. Dyan Carroll and her mom, Dorothy Jacobsen showed us their culinary skills with a delicious spread of salmon patties, turkey stuffing, coleslaw, cheddar cheese broccoli and carrot cake. Mary Koval and her daughter Chris van Nortrick stirred up some mighty tasty stew. Susie Gardner tended bar and handed out out non-alcoholic Shirley Temples and Roy Rogers. Dave brought some Barbecue beans that were to die for: if you ate too many of them! It was Mary Koval’s and Dave King’s Mom’s birthday and we all got to sing Happy Birthday twice. There were around twenty hungry folks who showed up.” 
Thank you, Bob, good to hear your voice!

Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center
Happy Birthday felicitations to all You November Birthday Celebrators out there and hugzzzz to Mary and Aggie! While we’re in such a festive mood, here’s wishing us all a lovely Thanksgiving Celebration. From our neck-o’-the-sands to yours: Gobble gobble and Tofu tofu - may you have lots to be thankful for!

We are all very thankful our beloved Jim is here with us this year. We will be enjoying a liquid Turkey dinner, so Jim can ingest the meal via his feeding tube, which goes directly into his stomach. He can’t taste anything, but his nose tells him it’s delicious. It’s all good, he’s gained over ten pounds and we are thankful, yes indeedee!

By the way our new Copper Mountain Mesa Board of Directors line-up is: Ken Sitz - President; David King and Kip Fjeld - 1st & 2nd Vice-presidents; Rohini Walker and Christian Camargo - co-Secretary; Tim Atzei, Jay Babcock and Stephanie Smith - Directors; with Mary Helen Tuttle as appointed Treasurer. Thank you all so very much for stepping up; we sincerely appreciate your service.

Next Saturday, December 3rd is our monthly Breakfast from 8-11am. We can’t wait to see your face and spoil you rotten: stay well!

Hi-Desert Star Column, November 17, 2016

Our little Community held our annual “changing of the Guard” Board meeting last Saturday. The closing of the fiscal year meeting was at 1 p.m., immediately followed by the General meeting. I have been President of the Board of Directors for the past two years and it would have been nice if I was there to conduct my last meeting, but...I couldn’t show. I did go over to the Community Center just before 2 p.m., to share that I am simply unable to be part of the Board right now. I formally handed in my set of keys and assured everyone I would be back just as soon as I’ve completed my education.

All those kind, sympathetic eyes were just too much for me and I completely broke down. Tears streaming down my “ugly-cry” face, I shared my woes with my beloved Neighbors. Everyone was so encouraging and I got lots of Big Hugzzzz! I left right after that, so with many humble apologies, I must confess that I have no idea who the President or newly elected Board Members are.

I’m feeling pulled in so many directions and I’m not present enough to be a good ambassador for our beloved Community at the moment. I have been worried about the quality of this Copper Mountain Mesa column recently too. My writing is very self-absorbed right now. It’s almost impossible for me to talk about local goings-on in a cheerful tone, which, I think is what is expected of me as representative and columnist of our wonderful Neighborhood.

Bob DeLoyd
Our very dear Neighbor, Bob Deloyd, who wrote this column for eleven years and was my immediate predecessor, offered to help out here and there, writing about the Potluck and that sort of thing, which I appreciated greatly. Then, Neighbor Jay Babcock e-mailed me, offering to help in any way, including taking over the column if that was the solution to my dilemma. Jay is an engaging story-teller, loves this Mesa, is involved with local conservation, volunteers at the Center and has impressive writing credentials.

Between us, we gotcha covered; stay well!

Copper Mountain Mesa volunteers honored

At the San Bernardino County Fire Department Fifth Annual Firefighter Appreciation Banquet, held May 2, 1987 at the SBC Fairgrounds in Victorville, six Copper Mountain Mesa volunteer firefighters were honored for 5 years of service. Those honored were:

  • Maria Girouard
  • Juan Maybee
  • Robert R. Maybee
  • Biffel Redfern
  • Stephanie Villarreal
  • Michael Villarreal

According to the 1982 Fire Protection Annual Report, published by San Bernardino County Forestry and Fire Warden Department,
The Copper Mountain Mesa Fire Station 44 was dedicated May 28 [1982] and was constructed entirely by the community through fund-raising activities to purchase the building materials, and labor was donated to construct the building.
According to the 1983 Fire Protection Annual Report, published by San Bernardino County Forestry and Fire Warden Department,
Grant fund monies were given to... Copper Mountain Mesa Station 44 to beautify station grounds by planting trees and shrubs and adding automatic water systems, fences and planters.
Sparky the Dog and Smokey the Bear flank the volunteer firefighters.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

Hi-Desert Star Column for Copper Mountain Mesa, November 10, 2016

Our little Community is on the brink of a very important election of our own. It’s time to elect new Copper Mountain Mesa Community Association Board members, as well as decide who will be our next President and Vice Presidents.


I am writing this article on the morning after the Nation’s Presidential election. As I do not have TV, I kept an eye on things via internet overnight, as I finished my Communication essay and did my readings for class. First thing this morning I checked my computer and it was true, it wasn’t a nightmare: Donald Trump won the 2016 United States Presidential election.


Obviously, the majority of American voters wants to stick with the “Me first; I’m right; my wealth, my god; my rules; my skin color: all is right-wing conservative-alrighty in my country. The rest of the world, climate change etc., can just go away and stop being so damned annoying”. I must confess, I am astounded, disappointed and dismayed. I know what the Global Community thinks of our presidential choice!

There is one bright light, people! Marijuana is now sort-of legal in California. Let’s go medicate ourselves into oblivion and we won’t care who our president is or what direction he takes our beloved America in. We’ll have our pot and pills; won’t have to worry about a thing!


Okay, onward ever onward. If you’re around this weekend, join us at the Community Center at 65336 Winters road, on Saturday November 12th from 1 p.m. for the final Board meeting of the fiscal year. My two terms as Madame President are over and I sincerely thank everyone for giving me the opportunity to serve my beloved Community.
Young, tech-savvy needed
The General Membership Meeting which follows at 2 p.m. will vote to fill three seats: mine, as well as Mary Helen and Steve Tuttle’s . We are calling on Neighbors to step up, address the issues and help lead the Center. It’s time for change; we need younger minds with innovative, workable solutions, technologically savvy, with a clear direction for the Community of Copper Mountain Mesa. See you at the Meeting; stay well!

Movie Night | Saturday, July 16, 2016


Saturday, July 16, 8 - 10 p.m.
Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center
65336 Winters Road, Joshua Tree, CA 92252

Join us for Movie Night Under the Stars - the last of the season!

The movie is Billy Wilder's Ace in the Hole, with Kirk Douglas and Jan Sterling. The story takes place in the Arizona desert and conforms with our desert theme.

Ace in the Hole is one of the best movies I've seen, looking into the dark heart of media exploitation. Formerly titled "The Big Carnival" this movie is a must see going into the presidential election.

We'll be serving bacon-wrapped kosher hot dogs, homemade buttered popcorn, and other homemade baked goods.

A suggested donation of $5, and for veterans and seniors $3, benefits our fund for a new roof on the community center.

generosity%20clipartOur little Community Potluck Buffet and Egg Coloring Party was such fun last Saturday.

Mary Koval and her daughter Chris hostessed the Party as usual and it was touching how much care they took with the decorations and set up. These conscientious Ladies sew their own table cloths specially for every occasion. Last month they decorated with a Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day theme and this month it was Saint Patrick’s Day and Easter, with appropriately colored table cloths and decorations to match. It was very festive and certainly set the mood of joy and good cheer throughout our gathering. The food was varied and tasty, as everyone brought their most delicious dishes; including some fabulous desserts.


I enjoyed a lovely chinwag with Neighbor Bob Deloyd, who actually wrote this column for 11 years and is my immediate predecessor. He is a very talented writer, with a down-home in the Desert tone to his journalism. He gave me an autographed copy of his latest book: “Azure Sea of Dreams”, Poems, Inspirations and Meanderings of Robert Deloyd. It’s really a good read, full of thoughts and feelings Bob probably jotted down over the while and compiled into a book. I am enjoying the ride!

I also had a nice chat with Joseph Lechner who is in the same Copper Mountain College English Literature class as I am, with Professor Ellen Baird. His wife Brenda and I took an art class together a couple of semesters ago and they brought their three children along for the egg coloring. David King had much eggsperience, thanks to all his nieces and nephews. We had the regular bowls of dye, along with stickers and other art deco, but David provided the most original egg-dying method with a bowl full of shaving cream with different coloring in various spots. Great fun was had by all and good nutrition too!

Our little Community is definitely feeling the Spring in the air!

Springtime on the mesa

 Flowers everywhere and that lovely warm sunshine.  Turkey vultures all over our tamarisk tree last week suggested that Spring is here and this was confirmed by a huge gobble of turkey vultures on a cottonwood tree by the Surprise Valley water well a few days later.


Wow, March just blew through didn’t it? It’s the April Community Breakfast next week, April 2nd, yay! Everybody’s favorite day of the month. It’s also the end of an era: our very last $5.00 All-American Breakfast, including unlimited access to the coffee pot. We have been forced to raise the price of the Adults Breakfast to $7.00 per person; the Child Breakfast price remains $2.50. All the food choices and beverages remain the same: fresh squeezed orange juice or V-8; Eggs; Bacon or sausage; home fried potatoes; pancakes; biscuits and gravy or toast, with unlimited coffee. Our Oatmeal Special, brimmin’ with trimmin’s and other monthly side dishes will continue to be offered.


Rising costs and dwindling funds made this price increase inevitable and it will go into effect at the May 7th Breakfast. We are sincerely hoping that most of our guests won’t blink an eye and will cheerfully fork over the extra two bucks per person to help keep their beloved Center going. However, as we all know, Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center, stewarded by the volunteers and members of the CMMC Association, has been a friendly face and a full, happy tummy to many of our low-income Neighbors for decades and we aim to keep it that way. So no worries if the wallet won’t stretch any further, we will figure something out, okay? Seeing your face is worth way more than 2 bucks! 

Sat. March 26th Eggstravaganza
Egg coloring at the Center 
Don’t forget the Easter egg coloring event during the Community Potluck Buffet this Saturday March 26th, from 4pm. Please join us for delicious dishes, Egg coloring party and a jolly good chin wag and bring the kids, grand- and great-grandkids; let’s celebrate that Spring has Sprung on Copper Mountain Mesa:
stay well!

Hi-Desert Star Column #267, March 19, 2016

Our little Community Potluck Buffet will be going on next Saturday, March 26th, from 4pm. That is Easter weekend, so we’ve decided to hold our annual Egg Coloring event that Saturday as well.

Should be fun; we’ve always enjoyed ourselves immensely, creating beautiful huevos, outside on the porch at our beloved Community Center. So, please join us and bring the kids, the grandkids and the great-grandkids, as well as all your favorite friends and neighbors. Let’s party people! Whatever your religious persuasion might be, coloring eggs is always a unifying, joyful experience for all concerned. Hope to see you there, along with your favorite dish to share!


Upcoming Monday morning, our very dear and appreciated Neighbor, Bill Trees, will be organizing the details for our monthly USDA food giveaway, beginning at 10a.m. This food giveaway and our monthly Breakfast continue to be the two biggest attractions for getting Neighbors to leave their own, personal Desert retreats and come join us at the Community Center!

By the way, I misreported on our road grading status last week.

Winters Road west of Friendship
Winters road was only graded from the pavement to Friendship road and Coyote Valley road was graded from La Brisa to the intersection of Winters. That’s it. Neighbors on the east end of the Mesa did not receive any road grading whatsoever. Sadly, the ‘smooth-job’ barely lasted a few days anyway, before all the old ruts, sand traps and solid rock ‘curbs’ were right back where we started from. The grader dude did an incomplete job on the few roads he worked on and his bill for that privilege was $840: I saw it with my own eyes! Meantime, boy do we pay the price for our appalling roads. A few weeks back, Jim had to replace our in-tank fuel pump; last week the idler bearing seized, the  bolt rattled completely out and our serpentine belt dropped off into the road, disabling the entire vehicle! What’s next? Well, I took a bad tumble, landed on my face and slid on my nose for a bit, so if you see me, be nice OK? Stay well!

Hi-Desert Star Column #266, March 10, 2016

Our little Community Breakfast was rockin’ again last Saturday. Eighty-three guests fed and sent on down the bumpy dirt roads, with happy tummies and faces.


Speaking of bumpy dirt roads, ours were smooth for half a second, about a week ago. I mentioned it in this column and praised the “mystery grader” to high heaven! Weeell; turns out this was not an act of charity or kindness! Winters road was graded from the pavement to Lear avenue and Coyote Valley road was graded from La Brisa to the intersection of Winters. That’s it and as I said, the ‘smooth-job’ barely lasted a few days before all the old ruts, sand traps and solid rock ‘curbs’ were right back where we started from.

Apparently, someone from San Bernardino County supervisors office authorized this grading and we were sent the bill! Yup: you heard me, Copper Mountain Mesa Community Association, which is barely managing to keep the doors open at our Community Center, received a bill from the “mystery grader” for $840.00! Mind you, all of us Neighbors just forked over for property taxes in December and we’re about to fork over a whole lot more by April 10th. Part of those taxes is supposed to finance the grading and maintaining of our dirt roads. What is going on? I smell a stinky, that’s what: a big, fat stinky! Rest assured, CMMCA Board members Steve Tuttle, Kip Fjeld, Mike Casey and David King are all over it and we are splendidly represented at the Municipal Advisory Committee meetings, by Mary Helen Tuttle.


Our monthly Board meeting is happening this Saturday morning, March 12th, from 10 o’clock. The monthly USDA food giveaway is on Monday, March 21st from 9am. Also, I’ve received enquiries regarding our annual Easter egg-coloring party, which we usually tag on to the breakfast nearest to Easter weekend. This year, however, Easter falls on the weekend of March 26th and our Community Potluck Buffet just happens to fall on that weekend, the last Saturday of March. Perhaps it would be more fun to color eggs at the Potluck party? I await your response; stay well!


NOTE: We need a volunteer who is familiar with web editing, to post Annelies's columns on this blog every week and to make periodic updates. We can train you - it's pretty easy. If you'd like to do this, please contact Teresa Sitz at teresa.sitz@gmail.com. Thank you.

CSDs - A Form of Self Government


The community of Copper Mountain Mesa is invited and welcome to attend and participate in a meeting regarding CSDs - A Form of Self Government a discussion with Gayl Swarat and Donna Munoz Saturday, March 26, 10:00 a.m. Wonder Valley Community Center 80526 ½ Amboy Road, Wonder Valley, CA Gayl Swarat and Donna Munoz, board members of the Morongo Valley CSD (Community Service District), will be in Wonder Valley to tell us the pros and cons of having a CSD - a form of independent local government used to provide services in unincorporated areas of a county. The Morongo Valley Community Service District was formed in 1958 and governs MV’s - fire and paramedic services - park - library - street lights Gayl Swarat 
is the MAC Delegate for Morongo Valley and a board member of the Morongo Valley CSD Donna Munoz
is the General Manager of the Morongo Valley CSD and is also on the board of Morongo Basin Ambulance
A Community Service Area (CSA) was formed in 1986 which allows the San Bernardino County Office of Special Districts to manage roads in Copper Mountain Mesa.
Read more about the Morongo Valley CSD http://www.92256.net/csd/ WHAT IS A CSD? Did you know that Morongo Valley has its own form of government? Many people don’t realize we are a Community Services District (CSD) and that our Community’s business is conducted by a 5 member Board of elected local citizens. All serve as volunteers and are unpaid for representing us (they are perhaps the only CSD Board in the State who do not draw a meeting stipend!). A special district is a separate local form of government that delivers a limited number of public services to a geographically limited area. The Morongo Valley CSD was formed in 1958 and oversees the Fire Department, Parks, libraries and street lighting - most other services are provided by the County of San Bernardino or State of California. There are 2 types of special districts: independent and dependent. Dependent districts are administrative extensions of cities or counties and depend on another unit of government, like a County Board of Supervisors, for their existence. Independent districts are directly responsible to their constituents and are created by local petition. The Morongo Valley CSD is an independent district. The main source of funding for the Morongo Valley CSD is from property tax allocations, a benefit assessment, fire & park fees and grants. 1% of our property tax bills are allocated to San Bernardino County. The CSD receives 20% of the County’s 1% allocation. In other words for every $1.00 paid by a resident of Morongo in property taxes only 0.2 of one cent is received by the CSD. The benefit assessment directly funds fire department operations. The paramedic services, added when the benefit assessment passed, are funded from general funds. The Paramedic Program allows us to offer upgraded medical services via the Fire Department. The closest ambulance service is located in Joshua Tree, often a 30 minute response time, away. Since over 60% of department calls are for medical aids, the Board of Directors felt strongly about bringing enhanced service to the Morongo Valley residents. Fire Services operational expenses constitute over 70% of the annual budget. The CSD is able to provide quality, local services by running a combination paid and volunteer Fire Department. A small core of paid personnel staff the engine, and offer paramedic and administrative duties 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. Volunteers are Fire Academy graduates who volunteer in exchange for furthering their certifications and training opportunities while serving Morongo Valley. The only other personnel are the General Manager, a park groundsman and a part time office worker. The General Manager is the Board secretary and is responsible for office administration, human resources, grant writing and administration, budget & policy oversight and representation of the community on the County and State level. The groundsman is responsible for landscaping duties, watering, sprinkler repair, trash removal and pruning. MVCSD and FD positions are paid approximately half the rate paid to comparable positions at the County or State level and are not offered retirement benefits.
