Juniper Hills Group Starts Work on Community Building

 

Construction is under way on the community center building on the site of Juniper Bowl, announces the Juniper Hills Community Association.

 

The 2400 square foot building will consist of a large assembly area, a kitchen which is all electric, and toilet facilities.  The structure will be of wood frame and stucco construction.  The ceiling will have acoustical tile.  The interior walls of the assembly area will be finished in a plywood veneer.  Finish flooring throughout will be asphalt tile, reports Noel N. Neal, board member, who says he is confident that with the continued assistance of the officers and members of the association the building soon will become a reality and an addition to the area, which is already well known for its Juniper Bowl.

 

Officers who have participated in the project include Maier Hosley, president; Harry Shimp, vice president; J. Russell Snyder, treasurer; Mrs. Kay Roth, secretary; Mrs. Agnes McMillan, assistant secretary.

 

James Ronald Fetridge, A.I.A. of Palmdale, was architect, and George Hall of Lancaster was consulting engineer.

Up-to-Date in Juniper Hills by Judy Payson:

 

October 24, 1964 will long be remembered by the residents of Juniper Hills and surrounding towns as the date on which the mortgage was burned on their Juniper Hills Clubhouse and Bowl.  The date will also take its place in South Antelope Valley as a testimony as to what can be accomplished by friendly neighborhood cooperation.  The real pioneer spirit as the early settlers practiced it.

 

To celebrate this happy occasion there will be an Hawaiian Luau for members and their guests starting at 6:30 p.m.  Our president, George Brumbach, will act as head chef.  We are promised a feast of exotic island food.  Also in the outdoor amphitheater there will be real Hawaiian entertainment furnished.

 

After the outdoor program, dancing in the clubhouse will be enjoyed.

 

The following members are more than busy preparing for this jouous occasion.  George Brumbach, chef; Harold Strange, head of the committee on food; Mrs. Virginia Strange, in charge of decoration; Mrs. Sharon Ellington, in charge of the program.

 

Deadline for reservations will be October 18.  Donation for adults will be $2.50 and for children under 12, $1.00.  For reservation please call Mrs. Olive Dunsmore, Mrs. Hazel Arnet or Mrs. Judy Payson.

Editor's Comment

SOME TIMES IT PAYS TO FIGHT!

 

The Juniper Hills Association, and in particular Gunther Redmann, have been working to get a lower rate from Pacific Telephone, and as of February 27, that work has paid off.  The residents of the community have been charged a mileage rate from the 96th St. telephone facility.  This made a high monthly basic rate for all the users.  An example is the Redmann past rate of $18.50 per month before toll calls are added.  The new rate at the Redmann residence for phone service will be $12.00.  The reason for this is that the point from which mileage is figured will be at the corner of Sierra Mesa Road and 106th St East.  At 65 cents a quarter mile, there can be quite a difference in the point from which the charges are measured.  At a hearing held on July 31, 1979, Redmann provided enough facts before the Public Utilities Commission to warrant an order by the PUC that the Telephone Company establish the rate point to the Sierra Mesa location.  The Telephone Company has also assumed implementation of four-party line suburban service and withdrawal of four-party line urban service.  All this goes to show that you can fight and win and it looks to us as if the residents owe a vote of thanks to their community association and to Gunther Redmann.
