Plants Needed for Desert Gate Area

Do you have some mature agave plants that you would like to have removed? Several of our neighborhood volunteers...Don Hartje, Cheryl Brownstein, William Rodman, and Tom Aigner... are doing some landscaping work around the Desert Gate area at the west end of Excelso. They've prepared some nice rock circle borders for agave plants, and now they need six mature plants, each a minimum of 32 inches high. If you have a plant you would like to donate, please contact Cyndie Alto (509-881-7569) or Tom Aigner (720-518-9505).

Rare Sonoran Salmon Run

Have you seen one of these rare "Sonoran salmon" running across the desert? Mary and Rod Harp spotted this one. It's really a piece of cactus, but doesn't it look like a salmon swimming up stream? You just never know what you will find in our desert!

Keeping Your Vehicle Safe
Source: Pima County Sheriff's Department; Green Valley Council Citizens Corp Emergency Response Committee April Message
Keeping your vehicle safe from theft should be a priority to everyone. Our vehicles are important investments, essential in emergency situations, and necessary for daily life. Due to current vehicle shortages in this country right now, citizens should be even more conscientious about the security of their vehicle as getting a replacement vehicle may be difficult to do. 
Many of the stolen vehicles that are less than 10 years of age are stolen with the keys. Every day, people have their vehicle stolen because they leave their vehicle unattended and running. A common theme is that the person was only going to be away from their vehicle for “a couple of minutes”. This is more than enough time for a waiting thief to steal your vehicle. Below are some tips to keep your vehicle safe and in your possession.
  • Always lock your vehicle, even in your driveway or garage.
  • Never leave your vehicle running and unattended.
  • Do not store extra keys in your vehicle.
  • Do not leave vehicle keys in visible areas within your home.
  • Avoid leaving valuable items in plain view inside of your vehicle.
  • Close and lock your windows and doors when parking your vehicle.
  • Always park in well-lit areas.
  • Install a vehicle immobilization device (steering wheel lock) when you park your vehicle
