Gallup Recyclng - how to…

The Timberlake Volunteer Fire Department is asking for your cooperation in not using the cut across through their parking lot to Wolf Road from the mailboxes. This has become a major safety issue for fire equipment/personnel and includes all vehicles such as cars, trucks, ATVs and UTVs.  

On December 28th the Timberlake Volunteer Fire Department successfully burned both monster brush piles to the south of the Ranch House Community Center.  Weather conditions were finally optimal.  The brush pile had to be closed late fall due to the tremendous amount of heavy fuel load removed from 10 miles of sideroad easements.  Thank you to Isaac Wilson Julie Farrell, Rick Farrell, Kathy Waller, Dale Waller, Cheri Sanders, Bill Sanders, Andy Wilson, Ryas Wilson and photographer Wade Aubuchon.

CONGRATULATIONS to our local Ramah post office. They recently were #1 in their District (New Mexico and Arizona) for their size of post office.  Revenue, customer service and scanning was the criteria for winning.  Did you know that they even handle more packages than the Gallup post office?  Special thanks and appreciation goes to our very own Pam Mansperger and her boss Lisa.

ALWAYS call 911 first with any emergency and give the operator the County you live in and then Timberlake subdivision north of Ramah, NM.  We are in District 55 for fire emergencies.


The bathhouse opening has been delayed until May 1st due to the extended Coronavirus danger and concerns. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the Board feels that health and safety are a priority.

We do not have the resources to constantly monitor and clean the facilities.  That leaves the bathhouse  in an uncontrolled environment and the possibility of cross contamination would be very high. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience the delay may have caused, but hopefully we can all get this Coronavirus pandemic behind us and have a wonderful summer.

WE NEED YOUR HELP – Updated 2/27/2020

From the Fire Mitigation Committee

Cibola County is currently updating their CWPP Plan (Community Wildfire Protection Plan) from 2006.  Even if you live in McKinley County the Fire Mitigation Committee would appreciate your help by filling out a survey at:


You can read the entire CWPP Plan from this website.  The first public meeting was held on February 26th and another one will be held in May in Grants.  Please contact Mary Jo Wallen at 505-269-5022 or at Mrsdw19dw@aol.com.  A lot of positive recommendations have been made and discussions have started concerning Suggestion #1 below between Cibola County and the BIA.

The CWPP helps residents and emergency managers of Cibola County set priorities to prepare for wildfire.  In reviewing the 2006 Plan it is evident that Timberlake was not mentioned that much, so we need to have our voices heard now.  One-third of the lots in Timberlake are in Cibola County (262 out of 743).   When you open the page, go down to the bottom and click on “Public Survey”.  It should only take about 15 minutes.  We would like to offer at least two suggestions: (1) Mention that we only have one-way in and one-way out in case of a fire or medical emergency and ask that Cibola and the BIA work on an agreement to fix/maintain the BIA portion of our road. (2) Ask that more grants be made available for landowners to mitigate their property.

As we reported last year, the updated McKinley County CWPP reported that Timberlake was one of eight areas in the County at a high risk for major crown fires.  This updated Cibola CWPP is also indicating we are in a high risk area.
