An Hour at the Roosevelt Lake Visitor’s Center with LuAnn Peeks

By Patti M. Daley There’s a humble, hidden treasure of the Tonto Basin to be found just a short drive from Globe. It’s easy to get there: drive north on Highway 188 to Roosevelt Lake. At mile marker 242.8, you’ll see the sign. You’ve reached the Roosevelt Lake Visitor’s Center. The building, built into the landscape, is barely visible from the highway. When you enter, you’re greeted by a beautiful view of Roosevelt Lake and an easygoing introduction to the wildlife and history that surrounds it. Every Tuesday through Saturday, from 7:45 in the morning until 4:30 in the afternoon, LuAnn Peek will be there to welcome you. Employed by the USDA Forest Service as a Customer Service Rep, LuAnn answers questions and helps travelers explore the region. She does it with a love and knowledge of the Roosevelt Lake area that comes from a lifetime of living there. LuAnn grew up in a large family of fishermen, hunters and campers. “When we had our last Easter Picnic here, we were five generations,” she remembers. “What a blast it was.” She moved away only once, when she and her husband, Tom, went to work at the BHP Copper mine in ...

Gila County Health Department breaks new ground in fight against opioid abuse

GILA COUNTY-The Gila County Health Department is the first county health department in the state to make naloxone available free to the public. The “recovery kits” contain two doses of naloxone (the drug that can reverse an opioid overdose), two intramuscular syringes, and clear instructions on when and how to administer the drug.  The potentially life-saving injection should be administered in one of four major muscle groups and does not have to be injected into a vein to be beneficial.
