Bake Sale

The Festival is almost upon us and we need LOTS of homemade Baked Goods for the Bake Sale Tent. It is a wonderful way to get the family involved and support our Fire Department. All proceeds go directly to RCVFD.Our biggest request from folks who come to the festival is for PIES. We can never have too many! Cookies, brownies, cupcakes, breads, scones, tarts, and bars are always a hit too. Get creative, bake whatever you want to share! It is very helpful to have items packaged in sellable amounts, ie: half dozen cookies or individual brownies. Listing ingredients especially allergens such as peanuts is helpful too. Someone will be at the tent as early as 7:30 on 9/8/2018 so feel free to drop items off anytime after that. If you have questions please don't hesitate to call or email. Lisa Diederich..

Mountain Lion Attacks Lower Buckhorn

On Tuesday evening 11/7 we lost 2 of our goats to a couple of mountain lions. One we believe was lost and confused in the thick fog that day and was attacked on our south facing mountainside. The other goat was 12 feet from our east facing deck well within our perimeter fencing. Our dog alerted from inside. Turning on the east side light I immediately saw large lion prints and a clear drag mark that ran down the east side to the south side of the house until the lion could not get its kill outside the fencing. It was to dark even with outside lighting to safely follow the mountain lion tracks and drag mark that was approximately 80-100 yards long. Wednesday morning upon inspection I found one dead goat inside our fenced area at the end of the drag mark with clear lion tracks. Other than the kill of this goat there was no sign the lion attempted to eat it. I believe the lion abandoned its kill when I turned on the outside lights. We stumbled upon the second goat with the lion guarding it. We were approximately 20 feet from the lion before it growled and turned away. Yesterday 11/11 2 more goats were picked off by the lion(s). We are aware of the obvious, we moved into predator territory and goats if you've ever had the experience are hard to contain in any sort of fencing. Despite all off this, the lion has killed 6 times on our property within the last 8 months! And, 3 of those 5 kills were well within our perimeter fencing close to the house. This mountain lion or lions are clearly comfortable walking up close to the house! Be alert! Be safe! Be aware!

Fire extinguisher recall

Terry Shetler just brought the Kidde fire extinguisher recall to my attention. He had 4 recalled and it turns out 5 out of 6 extinguishers in my house are on the recall list.

This is the Kidde link for the fire extinguisher recall:

They are offering free replacement for all affected units back to 1973. Four of the seven extinguishers we have are affected.

Jon Stephens is planning to exhibit a recalled extinguisher with the recall notice in the Winter Festival tent.
