Gala! Country Music! Jazz! Piano Battle!
Del E. Webb Center celebrates 16th Season The Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts in Wickenburg schedules a wide variety of performances in the intimate, 600-seat venue every year from November through April. During the second half of its 16th Presenting Season, the Webb Center features diverse genres, including: country, Broadway, comedy, classical, jazz and Big Band music. “We had a wildly successful 2015-16 season, and are thrilled to be presenting a combination of brand-new and returning artists this season,” stated Cathy Weiss, executive director of the Webb Center. “The Webb Center strives to offer exciting performances from multiple genres. For example, this season we are presenting Piano Battle where audience members are invited to vote on the classical pianists’ performances and ultimately determine a winner.” Webb Center audiences will be delighted by the sophisticated sounds of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra; legendary jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis and his quintet; and a new Phoenix Symphony’s pops program.
Country music fans will enjoy hits by country royalty Rosanne Cash with John Leventhal and The Quebe Sisters’ vintage style of Texas swing and three-part harmony. Kicking off Wickenburg’s Gold Rush Days celebration in February is John Anderson, who boasts five #1 singles on the country charts. Comedy this season comes in the form of comedian Tom Papa, who got his big break opening for Jerry Seinfeld. February welcomes the Webb Center’s fourth annual Find Your Center Gala featuring legendary Broadway vocalist Betty Buckley on February 18. This premiere event promises more than 100 silent auction items, an open bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and a spectacular concert with proceeds from the event benefiting the organization’s many programs. Tickets are on sale now. Call the Webb Center’s box office at (928) 684-6624 to purchase tickets or visit www. dewpac.org for schedule, information on artists, and video previews.

Bring a penny! The Wishing Well has been a local favorite since it was constructed 75 years ago next to the Hassayampa River bridge. The well is now surrounded by a small town park adjacent to the Hassayampa River Walk. The Wishing Well is also the site of several interpretive signs detailing Wickenburgâ€™s cultural history, as well as the ofďŹ cial version of the Hassayampa Legend. The Town of Wickenburg and local volunteer groups continue to add landscaping and other attractive features to this inviting little park, located on the edge of downtown.

Mayo Clinic telestroke online at Community Hospital In a relatively rural area, Wickenburg residents have access to many advanced healthcare solutions. Due to the diligent fundraising efforts of the community and forward-thinking leadership, Wickenburg Community Hospital (WCH) continues to grow and advance, and offer state-ofthe-art treatment. One of those services is emergency medical care for a stroke with the Mayo Clinic â€œtelestrokeâ€? program available at WCH. 0D\R&OLQLFZDVWKHĂ€UVWPHGLFDOFHQter in Arizona to do pioneering clinical research to study telemedicine as a means of serving patients with a stroke in non-urban settings, and today serves as the hub in a network of 14 other spoke centers, all but one in Arizona. WCH is the 10th hospital to be part of the telestroke service from Mayo Clinic. When Mayo Clinic began its stroke telemedicine program in 2005, statistics revealed that 40 percent of residents in Ari-
zona lived outside an area with immediate stroke expertise. In telestroke care, the use of a robot located in a rural hospital lets a stroke patient be seen in real time by a neurology specialist at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix. The Mayo stroke neurologist, whose face appears on the screen of the robot, consults with emergency room physicians at WCH and evaluates the patient. Patients showing signs of stroke can be examined by the neurologist via computer, smart phone technology, portable tablets or ODSWRSV$PDMRUEHQHĂ€WRIWKHFROODERUDtion is that patients with stroke symptoms who meet the criteria can often be administered medications within the narrow window of time necessary to minimize permanent injury to the brain. â€œExcellent, capable emergency physicians at Wickenburg Community Hospital can ring the telestroke hotline and be instantly connected with Mayo Clinicâ€™s stroke experts,â€? said Bart Demaerschalk,

Hassayampa River holds a surprise As drivers cross the Hassayampa bridge from Highway 60 into Wickenburg, the riverbed is dry sand. But our â€œupsidedownâ€? Hassayampa River makes a beautiful appearance three miles south of town at the Hassayampa River Preserve. There, it slowly meanders through grassy banks and groves of cottonwood and willow trees, helping one forget theyâ€™re in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. And deeper into the preserve are shaded walking paths and the chance to see nature up close. The preserve was created in 1987 to protect the trees and critters that abide along the banks of the river. In addition to a large variety of animals, there are more than VSHFLHVRIELUGVWKDWĂ RFNWRWKHSUHVHUYH In addition to providing walking and hiking opportunities, the preserve offers a variety of programs, including educa-
tional bird walks led by master birders and fun projects for little enthusiasts. The river preserve has developed exciting programs for older children and adults in partnership with the Town of Wickenburg, the Bureau of Land Management and Maricopa County Parks. For instance, one of the monthly programs, Nature Rangers, invites children to learn about nature with hands-on projects, taught by fun and insightful volunteers More than a reprieve, the Hassayampa River Preserve is a valuable get-away, offering all ages a place to gather, to learn, meet friendly neighbors and rejuvenate.

Take a stroll ...
On the Hassayampa River Walk By Patti Slattery Those who drive by the Hassayampa River Walk during the holiday season â€“ especially at night â€“ are met with dazzling lights, festive decorations and a 29-foot Christmas tree topped with a cowboy hat made of lights. The spot is the destination of the newest Wickenburg tradition â€“ the Christmas tree lighting, which draws residents from Wickenburg and beyond with free cookies, coffee and hot chocolate, plus musical presentations, free photos, and the chance to touch bases with old friends and new. The Town of Wickenburg spared the old bridge several years ago, giving it a second chance. The Hassayampa River Walk is not exactly new in town â€“ more like repurposed, and in this day and age where the old is often demolished to make way for the new, it is refreshing when a piece of history is lovingly valued and preserved. That is exactly what The Town of Wickenburg did when it turned the old, retired highway bridge into The Hassayampa River Walk â€“ a pedestrian hangout where Spring/Summer 2017
people gather by foot or on bikes to cross the Hassayampa River, or just linger and visit. The walk begins at Wishing Well Park, off Kerkes Street across from the downtown roundabout. It is complete with an attractive wrought iron fence that overlooks the river. The surface of the bridge is covered with decorative asphalt with 199 horse hoof prints stamped into it. The walk is lined with benches for relaxing, and decorative lighting. It also features electrical outlets for vendor booths during special events. An added bonus of the walk is that it provides a pedestrian pathway under Hwy. 60. On any given day â€“ especially when rain causes the usually dry river to run â€“ visitors utilize the river walk to take an evening stroll, meet friends or just see the sights. Many gaze over the bridge to FDWFKRQHRI:LFNHQEXUJÂˇVPDJQLĂ€FHQWVXQVHWVRUWRVRDN up the peace and tranquility that the small, desert town provides. Whatever the sight, visitors are sure to return home glad they took the time to venture along the Hassayampa River Walk, out Wickenburg way.

Tour historic downtown Looking for a way to visit Wickenburg and have a little fun? Weâ€™ve got a map for that!
Come Ride Our Trails
Start out at the corner of Yavapai and Frontier streets. Here, youâ€™ll find the beautifully restored 1895 Santa Fe Railroad Depot, alongside a steam engine from 1890 and an intriguing red caboose from yesteryear. Step inside the depot for a look around and pick up a Walking Tour Guide. This helpful little pamphlet includes a map of historic downtown Wickenburg and 31 points of interest, all within easy walking distance of the depot. (Of course you can drive it as well.) Along the way, youâ€™ll find attractions such as the old brick post office where settlers arrived on horseback to pick up mail. The building houses a dry cleaner and laundry service now, but itâ€™s easy to see the original bricks and imagine the hitching rail out front. The old livery stable around the other side of the block was built in 1890 and today houses several businesses along Tegner Street. With the help of the guide, the discerning eye can still make out the angle of the buildingâ€™s corners, which was transformed from livery stable to car dealership and gas station as times changed. Youâ€™re sure to meet lots of friendly faces inside the

modern day shops and restaurants found all along the way as you enjoy your walking tour. Some other friendly faces are those of the painted bronzes along the sidewalks. These folks represent actual people in early Wickenburg. Start out with the school teacher near the depot. Having just stepped off the train in Wickenburg, she is looking down the street hoping to find her way to the school and the family she will be staying with as she takes on her new job. This is one of nine bronzes listed on the walking tour.

Like to Hike?
Two excellent treks close to Wickenburg
The Vulture Peak trail offers a spectacular panoramic view of Wickenburg and the desert beyond. The hike is four miles round WULSDQGUDQJHVIURPHDV\WRGLIÀFXOW7KHÀUVWSDUWRIWKHKLNHLVD VLPSOHWUDLOWKDWPHDQGHUVWKURXJKZLOGÁRZHUVDQGVDJXDURVWDQGV The peak of the hike becomes a demanding trek up the side of the mountain. The trail is jagged with high step-ups which lead to a saddle between peaks. Between the saddle and the summit, the trail becomes extremely steep as hikers have to use their strength to hoist themselves up a crevice in the mountain. The hard work pays off at the top with a panoramic view in every direction. To reach the Vulture Peak trail head start at Safeway in Wickenburg and drive south on Vulture Mine Road for about 6.4 miles. Look to the left for the signs which are nestled in a curve in the road. Turn left on the dirt road and continue to the parking lot. Off-road and 4-wheel drive vehicles can continue past the parking lot for about a mile to the upper trail head. The parking lot has a restroom and a map of the trail. The trail does not have trash cans or water along the way. Athletic dogs may be able to make it to the top, but most four-legged friends will end their hike at the saddle. Hikers who do make it to the top can head to WKH&KDPEHURI&RPPHUFHDIWHUWKHLUKLNHIRUDFHUWLÀFDWHWRSURYH they made it.

Continue past the rodeo grounds and beyond the end of the pavement. The dirt road winds through a wash and soon comes to a fork with Blue Tank Road to the left. Take Blue Tank Road for 1.4 miles. Look for the parking area on the right hand side of the road. A portion of the trail system has been improved for mountain biking. Consult the map at the trailhead for more information.
