Mayor Jen Miles

Kingman Route 66 Rotary Club's March 6 speaker, Mayor Jen Miles (shown with club president Karen Brown), addressed the club on the state of the city. The Home Rule option has been approved every 4 years by voters since 1988. When it expires in 2023 staff recommends replacing it with a Permanent Base Adjustment. Miles noted the Rancho Santa Fe Interchange looks good and is expected to go to executive session in April with hopes of breaking ground by the end of the year. Water issues focus on the substation and state legislation is needed for these. Rep. Regina Cobb has proposed several bills on this but no progress yet in the State House of Representatives. Downtown Kingman has new parking spaces for tour buses and street-side seating in front of some businesses. August's primary ballot will include a measure to change the term of mayor from 2 years to 4 years. (Photo and verbiage by Jo Ann Oxsen)

Rotary Microgrant recipient
 
At its March 6 meeting, Kingman Route 66 Rotary Club presented Kingman Academy of Learning teacher, Stephanie Roundy with a microgrant donation check of $2,000 (shown with Rotarian Brenda Rhodes and club president Karen Brown). Roundy teaches 3rd-5th grades and will be using the donation for materials to be used in the Sensory Path Circuit program. This is an evidence-based, colorful, creative and playful way for kids to improve fundamental motor skills and build stronger sensory connections in the brain that are responsible for sight, touch, sound, balance, etc. (photo and verbiage by Jo Ann Oxsen)
Treatment for Opioid Addiction
 
The community Medical Services Clinic Manager for Kingman and Lake Havasu City Michelle Valandingham and her associate Ronny Jones spoke at Kingman Route 66 Rotary Club's February 7 meeting (shown above with club president Karen Brown).  Offering treatment for opioid addiction, there are 46 Community Medical Services clinics nationwide including Kingman, which opened September 2019 and Lake Havasu City, open since August 2019. The clinics administer methadone treatments and provide Naloxone for overdose treatment. Jones, a recovering opioid addict himself, noted opioids are as important to an addict as food and water and methadone helps rewire the brain to help patients avoid relapses. The clinic accepts Medicare, Access or private payment. For further information call 928-565-6699 or email michelle.valandingham@cmsgiveshope.com  (provided by Jo Ann Oxsen) 

Mohave Community College

 

Featured speaker at Kingman Route 66 Rotary Club's January 24th meeting was Mohave Community College's Kingman campus President (and fellow Rotarian), Dr. Stacy Klippenstein. As of July 1st, Klippenstein became  MCC's 6th President. Having earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education and Master of Education in Student Affairs Administration at Montana State University, Klippenstein went on to be awarded his Doctor of Education at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. From there, he began his career in higher education at Northern Arizona University in 1996, where he worked in the Office of Residence Life and Facilities Management. Klippenstein and his wife always had a soft spot in their hearts for Arizona and were happy to return here last year. He noted Mohave Community College has served Mohave County, our communities and students extremely well over the years and he is encouraged by the positive and collaborative spirit of its faculty, staff, students and community partners.
