Zuni Transfer Station update

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.

Continental Divide will be out trimming trees along all power lines

in Timberlake, starting March 1st (weather permitting).  They will be working all summer.  They will be creating neat piles of the trimmings along their right-of-way.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Steve Wills, TRLA president, at 783-2457 or TRLApresident@gmail.com.  He will be the interface to Continental Divide.  The tree trimmers are contractors and are just doing what they are hired to do.

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.


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.  Also, if you would like to attend the public meeting on February 26th at 5:30 p.m. in Grants, please contact Mary Jo Wallen at 505-269-5022 or Mrsdw19dw@aol.com.  There will also be a follow-up meeting sometime in May after the results of the survey and meeting are compiled.

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.  

There is also a Zuni Mountain Collaborative meeting in Grants on February 12th from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The meeting will address (1) The future of collaboration in the Zuni Mountains (2) Updates on monitoring and outreach (3) The status of restoration treatment implementation from 2019.  Email gabe@forestguild.org by February 7th if you plan to attend and visit www.zunimountainscollaborative.org for more information.
