CAC Board approves draft budget: tax rates will increase, salaries won’t By Lana Jones The Central Arizona College Governing Board met at Aravaipa Campus last Tuesday, April 19, and unanimously agreed to publish the draft 2011-2012 budget. The Board will get another chance to look at the budget and approve any changes at their next meeting on Signal Peak Campus, May 17. CAC faces the same situation as many schools and counties: the state has cut funding by millions again this year. The state cut appropriations to CAC this year by $2.4 million. Tax revenues will also decrease despite an increase in the tax rate. The only notable increase in the budget will come from

the board-approved tuition increase of $5 per credit hour. Chris Wodka, CAC’s vice president of finance and administration, told board members that property tax values in the county had decreased more than 15 percent. CAC’s primary property tax rate is set to increase from 1.47 percent to 1.51. Even so, the primary taxes brought in will decrease by $2.9 million. Secondary taxes will increase to pay for voter-approved bonds being issued next spring. The increase in the secondary tax rate will bring in $2.3 million. The combined changes in primary and secondary taxes will leave CAC with a $580,000 decrease in tax

revenue compared to last year. Board member Rick Gibson said that the board decreased tax rates for a number of years as property values in the county grew. He asked if the current increase would raise tax rates above previous levels. Wodka said that the current rate was lower than the highest primary tax rate of 2.17 percent in 2002-2003. The tax rate had fallen to 1.38 percent by 2010. After the budget discussion, the Board revisited the issue of raises in 2011-2012. Dennis Jenkins, CAC president, brought the issue back to the Board because of an unexpected change buried in the state budget. He said that when the Board

decided against raises, they thought that employee payroll deductions were going to increase .9 percent. It came up after the fact that employees are going to have to pay more into the Arizona State Retirement System. In the past, employees and employers split retirement contributions 50-50. Employees will be responsible for 53 percent of the retirement contribution next fiscal year. As a result, total employee deductions will increase 1.55 percent. “So their take home pay will be less,” Jenkins said. The Board took no action to change their previous decision on raises.

Friday the 13th will be lucky for someone because on May 13 starting at 6 p.m., at the Hayden School District Auditorium, the locally-fueled pageantry that is known as the Copper Basin Idol 2011, will unfold, for the entertainment and delight of young and old, alike; and, for the benefit of the very young, indeed. The cost of admission is $3, three cans of food, or one package of diapers, which will go to benefiting the Family First Pregnancy Care Center and Diaper Bank. Two groups of contestants,

ages 3-12 for the Junior Idol, and 13 and up for the Idol, will be competing, and, one grand prize winner from each will be chosen. Each contestant will be allowed to sing at most two songs, one for the competition and for those who qualify one after winning. The winners will represent the Copper Basin Area for events throughout the year until the next year. The program for the Copper Basin Idol 2011, hosted by Pat Brumley, begins with the National Anthem, performed by 2010 Copper Basin Idol

winner, Anissa Newman. From 6:30 to 7:10 p.m., Junior Idol and Idol contestants perform. Then, from 7:15 to 7:45 p.m., 2010 Junior Idol winner, Julianna Borquez, performs ‘Put Your Records On’ by Corrine Bentley, and, from 7:45 to 8 p.m., the two 2010 winners will perform their last songs as Junior Idol and Idol. The current winners will be announced and perform. Other guest performers and former winners from years past will also perform throughout the evening. Special thanks from the

Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce, proud sponsor of Copper Basin Idol 2011, are extended to Trendz Restaurant for auditions, Pinal County for auditions in the Kearny Administration Building, Copper Basin News for articles, Hayden/Winkelman School District for Auditorium and of course anyone else who may have not been formally mentioned but who was helpful to the cause and just as appreciated. Plan on attending and cheering for your favorite contestant.

Four students inducted into Phi Theta Kappa at CAC’s Aravaipa Campus By Guy Harrison Media and Marketing Specialist WINKELMAN, Ariz. – Four students from Central Arizona College’s Aravaipa Campus were rewarded for their excellence in the classroom on April 19 with induction into Phi Theta Kappa, the International Honor Society of the Two Year Colleges. Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and encourages the academic achievement of two-year college students and provides opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming. To be eligible for induction, students must compile a 3.5 grade point average. Amanda Carter, Kari Ramsey, Alex Villanueva and Lisa Walker were selected for induction. Nancy Deegan, Central Arizona College’s librarian, alum and guest speaker at the induction, offered valuable advice for the inductees during an impassioned speech before an audience of inductee friends and families as well as college administrators. “Do your best to plan, but be flexible,” she said. “It’s not a race to get that degree, it’s about the journey.” In addition, two CAC staff members were given recognition as honorary Phi Theta Kappa members. Jill Coleman and Evelyn Friend were chosen by the Alpha Theta Delta chapter for their dedication and contributions to Phi Theta Kappa. The Phi Theta Kappa Honor

The Central Arizona College students were inducted to the international honor society Tuesday April 19 on the Aravaipa campus. Lisa Walker will be the new secretary. Lynda Dickey, a previous inductee, will be the new vice president. Jill Coleman and Evelyn Friend were welcomed as new honorary members. (Lana Jones photo) Society was established by Missouri two-year college presidents in 1918 and serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students. The society provides opportunities for individual

growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than two million members and 1,200 chapters

located in the United States, U.S. Territories, Canada and Germany. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.

Family to honor slain deputy, Part Four By Becky Drew On May 11, 2011, the Drew family of Kearny will honor their ancestor, Edward Landers Drew. EL was a Deputy Sheriff for Pinal County and stationed at Ray. He was killed in a shoot out at the

Saloon of Dick Remington (or Pennington) in Sonoratown. I have included parts of the family story (so as to make sense of where the Drews came from and just how they ended up). This is by no means a complete story

as it is much longer. Help us honor EL Drew and those other brave law-men of the area, some who gave their lives and others who dedicated their lives to make it a safe place to live. Pauline Preston Drew c. 1898 Thomas and Hannah Preston family moved to Howard Lake, Minnesota where they had a farm and while there they converted to the Mormon faith. The Prestons then moved to Arizona Territory in 1885. They filed for a homestead soon after moving to Pima, which later became known as the Pennsil Farm. Mr. Preston and his sons grubbed the mesquite, leveled the land, dug ditches and planted crops. Polly received her education from Brigham Young Academy, Church Normal Training School at Provo, Utah. She received a Membership Certificate, on 21 August 1893, after completing all requirements. Before her marriage, she taught school at Layton (which is now part of Safford) and at Aravaipa Canyon, while also she was being a mother to her eight siblings due to the death of her mother, Hanna (7 August 1889). Her earnings went to help the family. Mr. Preston was a Civil War Veteran and buried when he died with an American flag in 1924. On 5 December 1898 Ed and Polly’s first, Doris Ethel was born. In a book by Forrestine Hooker, daughter-in-law to Colonel Hooker, The Long Dim Trial (1920), Ethel writes in the margins: “Lived at the Springs when was only a little girl, four years old. Used to wash my doll clothes in the mild hot water from the Hot Springs, which was known as Hooker Hot Springs at that time,” signed Ethel Drew Brenner (Page 44. The Hot Springs are between the fork of Johnson Flats and San Pedro, 15 miles. The Springs are about 30 miles from Wilcox.) A newspaper account (Arizona Republican, 7 Jan 1900.) from the Arizona Republic entitled “Arizona Day by Day, Live News Taken from Territorial Exchanges” informs us “. . . that Ed Drew on December 26 met

with an accident which caused a fracture of one of his legs. His horse fell over a bluff with him. This is the second painful accident which had recently befallen Mr. Drew. -- Wilcox News.” Newspaper accounts of the year 1900 reveals that in February of that year the Drews bought the John Nash farm in Pima.

In addition, that Ed “will give up the unclassical occupation of ‘cowpunching’ and devote his attention to his farm and to feeding stock.” The July 6th Arizona Bulletin says that Ed Drew shipped 20,000 pounds of oats to Cedar Springs. In August Ed was canvassing to see what his chances were as a candidate on

Thru the efforts of Christine Rhode I learned that E.L. was a deputy sheriff for Cochise County for a number of years. ) The September 12, 1900-edition of the Arizona Bulletin carried the following article: BRUIN TREED THREE OF THEM Last Sunday a party consisting of James, Jim and Larry Allison, a couple of Mexicans, with Ed Drew as foreman, were out riding after cattle. They were camped on Ash Creek near the Sierra Bonita ranch. The party had eaten dinner and were leaving camp when the came across a large bear. The fun began by roping his bearship, one loop deftly thrown around his hind legs and another around his neck. Several of the party then dismounted and came closer to take a look at bruin. Not having a rifle among them, Jim Abbot arrived from camp with a small caliber rifle and opened fire. One bullet cut the See Drew, Page 5

Bearcats, Lady Bearcats post big wins By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter The Lady Bearcats have continued to produce some great results during their play…part of this has to do with having an awesome group of athletes, part has to do with how they get along as a team and part has to do

with the wonderful coaching staff. Obviously, a nice mix has been created with the Lady Bearcats. During their game in Globe on Tuesday, April 19, the ladies went right ahead and showed off their incredible skills in top form once more.

Coach Hatfield explained, “Anissa Newman got the win 9 K’s[strikes], 4 BB and gave up six hits.” Hitting for the team was Lacee Reidhead at 2 for 5, with two RBI, and one Home run. She was followed by Leticia Arguello at 2 for 5 and two

RBI. Paula Real was batting at 2 for 5, with two RBIs. Breauana Hathaway was at 3 for 4 with one RBI. He continued stating “We scored one run in top of 1st, four in 3rd, one in 5th and then blew it open in top of 7th with nine runs on 10 hits in the

Ray Junior tracksters place in Hershey’s Games With several schools competing and more than one hundred athletes on the field, several Ray Elementary School students brought home medals from the Hershey’s Field and Track Games held April 16 in San Tan Valley at the Mountain View Middle School. Winners of Saturday’s Hershey’s Field and Track Games will move on to compete in State track events in May. The 54 boys and girls, ages 9-14, placed first and second in runs,

standing jump, and softball throw for different age groups. State Field and Track is scheduled for May 14 in Glendale. The Hershey’s Field and Track Games is sponsored by the Hershey’s Company and is free for all participants. “Word of our event is growing and we had a lot more kids participate this year,” said Ethan Albertson, teacher and coach at Magma Ranch School. Coaches brought runners from as far away as Kearny, Glendale, and

Maricopa. Last year, the meet took place within one school district. This year three school districts promoted the event. More than 100 youth competed by age in 50-1,600 meter dashes, standing long jump, and softball throw. Finish times for state champions are compared to those from the four other states in the region, and final winners are eligible for the national competition in Hershey, Pennsylvania. To see results online, go to

Local students placing were: Chandler Coleman second place in Boys 11-12 800-meter run (3:14); Jeron Coleman second place in Boys 13-14 800-meter run (2:42.9); Aaron Azevedo second place in Boys 9-10 standing long jump (6’ 0’’); Derek Figueroa second place in Boys 9-10 softball throw (89’ 5’’); Jeron Coleman second place in Boys 13-14 softball throw (134’ 8’’).

Junior Lobos, Lady Lobos return to diamond action By Nolberto Waddell After a three week lay-off from action due to spring break and the scheduling, the Hayden Junior High baseball and softball teams finally returned to the diamond, traveling to Kearny to take on the Junior Bearcats on Wednesday, March 30. The young Lobo baseball team, composed mainly of sixth and seventh graders, took it on the chin again as passed balls and errors combined with timely Bearcat hits led to a nine run first inning and a lead the young Lobos could not overcome losing the game in the 10-run rule shortened ball game 4 to 21. On the softball diamond, a very exciting pitching duel and well executed play on the field by both teams led to a nine inning game that was finally won by the Lady Lobos. If you did not get a chance to attend the game you missed a great pitching duel between the Lobos Lyana Waddell and the Bearcats Stormee Galka. Both teams had little trouble with the opposing batters in the first two innings but in the bottom of the third inning a walk given up by Lyana Waddell almost proved costly as the runner came around to score on three passed balls to take a 0 to 1 lead and with the pitching that was turned in by both pitchers it seemed like one run would be enough to win the ball game. Both pitchers again mowed down batters in the fourth and fifth innings and it looked like the game would end 1 to 0. The top of the sixth inning had Carolina Gomez leading off with a hit up the middle; Cheyenne Gaona came up to bat laying down a great bunt that froze the defender long enough to cause a bad throw to first base allowing Carolina to come around and score the tying run. Lyana put down the Bearcats in order in the bottom of the sixth inning and the teams headed into extra innings. In the top of the seventh inning the Lady Lobos had a chance to take the lead but a couple of running miscues led to outs. In the bottom of the seventh, with one out, the Lady Bearcats also had an opportunity to win the game getting a runner to third base on a fielder’s choice and a throwing error but Waddell buckled down striking out the next two batters to end the threat. The eighth inning was quiet with the Lobos getting a runner on with a hit but were unable to bring her around and the Lobos’ Waddell striking out the side in the Bearcats turn in the batter’s box. The top of the ninth inning was disastrous for the Bearcats. Lyana Waddell led off, hitting a fly toward the right side that was mishandled by the second baseman. Samantha Sampson got a hit to put runners at first and second. After an out, Leti Vargas laid down a good bunt that again forced a late throw to first loading the bass with Lady Lobos. After a strike out for two down, Savannah Huerta stepped into the box and hit a hard grounder toward first that was misplayed allowing two Hayden runs to come across the plate and a third run came in when a bad throw to third allowed Leti Vargas to score another run. The Lobos were not done. Carolina Gomez hit a hard grounder to the shortstop who took her time looking Huerta back to second base allowing Carolina to reach base safely. Hayden’s next batter, Cheyenne Goana, hit another grounder that was misplayed allowing Huerta

to come around and score the fourth run of the inning with the inning finally coming to an end when Gomez was caught at home on a steal attempt but the damage was done as Hayden took a 5 to 1 lead in the top of the ninth. In the bottom of the ninth after two outs, Waddell gave up her second hit of the game as a high bouncer went passed her outstretched arm for a harmless hit when the next batter hit a pop-up toward second to end the game and give the Lady Lobos a hard fought 5 to 1 win over the Bearcats. Carolina Gomez led the Lady Lobos at the plate getting two hits and scored a run in five at bats. Lexi Gomez and Jessie Lopez each had a hit in four at bats with Samantha Sampson also going one for four and scored a run. Lyana Waddell had a hit in three at bats and scored a run. On defense the Lady Lobos turned in a good game committing only one error backing up the great pitching performance of Lyana Waddell who gave up one unearned run, two base hits, walked only two batters and struck out 14 Bearcats batters. The Bearcats’ Stormee Galka also turned in a great pitching effort giving up the five

runs on six hits, no walks and struck out 18 Lobo batters but four fielding errors led to the loss. The young Lobos next game was another trip this time to Miami to take on the Junior Vandals. Once again miscues and passed balls led to another lopsided loss for the young Lobo baseball team dropping the game to the Junior Vandals with a score of 3 to 13. On the softball field, the Lady Lobos played well enough to earn a 10 to 5 win over the Lady Vandals despite six fielding errors by the Lobo defense. The Lobos gave up single runs in the first, second, third and fourth innings and one in the sixth inning mostly on fielding errors and passed balls. The three hits that the Vandals had did not bring any runs across the plate. Lyana Waddell was in the pitching circle for the Lobos tossing the six innings giving up the five runs on three hits, six errors, walked three Vandals and hit one batter and struck out 15 Vandal batters. On offense, the Lady Lobos pounded out seven hits and took advantage of six Vandal errors and five walks to score the ten runs. Lyana Waddell led the Lobo batters getting two

singles, a double, scored three runs and had two RBI in four at bats. Lexi Gomez had two hits and scored two runs in four at bats with Samantha Sampson getting a hit and scored two runs in three at bats. Jessie Lopez had a hit for two RBI and scored a run in two official at bats. A home game for the Lobo teams against the Superior Junior Panthers did not turn up good results for the Hayden teams. The young Lobos on the baseball diamond again were done in by errors, walks and passed balls, losing the game to the Junior Panthers with a score of 0 to 13. The results at the softball field also were not good. The usually under control pitching of the Lobo’s Lyana Waddell went by the wayside when she could not find the umpire’s strike zone giving up nine walks and the three timely hits by the Lady Panthers and three Lobo errors at crucial See Lobos, Page 4

inning.” This fantastic game was ended with a shutout score of 15-0! At press time, the Lady Bearcats were playing in Ray on Tuesday, April 26, against Desert Christian; the score is yet unknown. Currently the Ray Lady Bearcats hold 1st place in the 2A South Region, ahead of San Manuel in 2nd and Pusch Ridge in 3rd. Baseball This last week was good one for the Bearcats. During their first game against Miami on Monday, April 18, they blasted the Vandals back, showing all that talent that they have been working on so diligently with Coach Herb White. The team has had a great

season thus far and their obvious excitement for the game shows in the passion they put into their play. They left the close game against Miami at 7-6 moving them that much further up the rungs. Unfortunately, the following game was played against Globe on Tuesday, April 19, and while it was an incredibly tense game played at School Hill Park, the Bearcats could not get past the Tigers. While the game was left at 3-4, this is not that big of a hit to the team since Globe is not part of Ray’s region. Currently, the Bearcats in 3rd place for Region 2A South, behind Hayden in 2nd and San Manuel in 1st. Playoff games are not yet known; however that info will be posted as soon as it is available.

Three of the boys were unable to reach their horses and made for some trees near by which they climbed with alacrity. When Abbot saw the effects of his shooting, he rushed back to camp and secured a heavier rifle with which he dispatched the bear. The gentlemen, who in meantime had been peering down from the trees like chickens from their perch, came down, upon inspection it was found that they had escaped without injury. The seat of Mr. Drew’s trousers had an ugly rent caused by a sweep of the bear’s claws as Ed was rapidly ascending the tree. The bear was a Cinnamon weighing 400 pounds.--Range News. A second daughter, Thurza Mae, was born on 17 November 1900. In the spring of 1904 Mrs. Drew was expecting their third child. It was roundup time at the Sierra Bonita and all the men, except Colonel Hooker and the gardener went out to work the cattle. The baby decided to come prematurely on 4 May. The gardener was sent to the army post at Ft. Grant, which was 12 miles away, for help. Dr. John C. Wilson arrived several days later. Colonel Hooker delivered the child, Glenn Edwin, who weighted only two and a half pounds. They wrapped the baby in cotton and olive oil for the first few weeks, his bed was a boot box until he grew stronger. When Glenn was two, the family moved back to Pima. It was during this time that Mama Drew died. She was either visiting or living in Pearce at the time. On 21 October 1906 she passed away and was buried in Pearce, Arizona. In 1909 Ed sold a third interest in the Triangle No. 1 Mining Claim, which was located in the Turquoise Mining District, Cochise County. This account is taken from the minutes of the meeting of the Board of Directors of the Leadville Townsite Leasing and Mining Company. Mrs. L. J. Lemion owned the other twothirds interest in the mining claim, which she sold at the same time. The board met in their offices in Courtland on 16 February 1909 and approval for an agreement to purchase third interest in the Triangle No. 1 Mining Claim from E. L. Drew was accepted. For his interest they paid Ed $3,333.33 of which $333.33 had been paid and the balance due in installments. The contract was executed on 23 February 1909.

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona in by Jas. E. McGee, Sheriff. The family was planning to move to Ray, Arizona when an outlaw killed Ed during a holdup, on 15 May 1911, in Sonoratown (or Sonora) just outside Ray. Ed was only 46 years old. The Arizona Republican of May 17, 1911: KILLING OF AN OFFICER E.L. Drew Murdered in Ray By Masked Man WAS MIDNIGHT TRAGEDY Presumption is that Outlaw Planned to Rob a Saloon. Identity of Murderer Who Is Still At Large, is Unknown. E.L. Drew of Ray, a deputy sheriff of Pinal county, was shot and killed by an unknown masked man in a saloon in Sonoratown, a suburb of Ray, a few minutes before 12 o’clock, Monday night. Whether the shooting was an incident of a planned holdup for the purpose of robbery, or whether it was planned as a murder for revenge, seems not to be a settled point in Ray. The murderer made no effort to rob the saloon thereafter, and so far as know Drew had no personal enemies, being universally liked as an officer. Glen Hartford was seated in a chair nearby and Jack Russell, the bartender, was close to the other two men and between them. The masked man, whose nationality even has not been learned here, entered with a revolver in his hand and gave the order “Throw up your hands.” Russell and Hartford obeyed at once. Drew hesitated in his course of action until the second command came to “Throw up your hands damned quick.” As Drew still reclined the stranger stepped up and slapped him, whereupon Drew pulled his revolver but he before he could use it his assailant fired. It seemed as though Drew was waiting to get the drop on his assailant, or at least an even break with him, before reaching for his gun. When the masked man fired Drew

FRANCHISE AGREEMENT BETWEEN ARIZONA PUBLIC SERVICE COMPANY AND TOWN OF KEARNY, ARIZONA Section 1. - Grant of Franchise: There is hereby granted to Arizona Public Service Company, a corporation organized and existing under and by virtue of the laws of the State of Arizona (herein called “Grantee”), its successors and assigns, a franchise (herein called the “Franchise”) to construct, maintain and operate its electrical system, as defined herein, upon, over, along, across and under the present and future public rights-ofway. These rights-of-way include but are not limited to streets, alleys, ways and highways in the Town of Kearny, Arizona (herein called “Town”). Grantee’s system includes electric power lines, together with all necessary or desirable appurtenances, including, but not limited to, poles, towers, wires, cables, conduits, transmission lines, transformers, switches and communication lines for its own use. This Franchise is for Grantee’s use of Town’s public rights-of-way to supply and deliver electric energy to Town, its successors, the inhabitants thereof, and all individuals and entities either within or beyond the limits thereof, for all purposes. Section 2. – Grantee’s Compliance with Town Practice; Plans Submitted for Approval; Town Construction near Grantee’s Facilities: All construction under this Franchise shall be performed in accordance with established practices of Town with respect to such public rights-of-way. Such construction shall be completed within a reasonable time. Before Grantee makes any installations in the public rights-of-way, Grantee shall upon request or direction from Town obtain a construction permit and submit for approval a map showing the location of such proposed installations to Town’s Engineer. Town and Grantee agree and understand that there may be instances when Grantee is required to make repairs that are of an emergency nature. Grantee shall notify Town prior to such repairs, to the extent practicable, and shall obtain the necessary permits in a reasonable time after notification, showing the work performed in the public rights-of-way. If Town authorizes either directly or through a contractor any construction project adjacent to or near Grantee’s facilities operated pursuant to this Franchise, Town shall include in all such construction specifications, bids, and contracts, a requirement that the contractor or his designee must comply with the overhead power line safety laws (A.R.S. § 40-360.41 et. seq. as amended). Section 3. – Construction and Relocation of Grantee’s Facilities; Payment: All facilities installed or constructed pursuant to this Franchise shall be so located or relocated and so erected as to minimize the interference with traffic, or other authorized uses over, under or through the public rightsof-way. Furthermore, Grantee shall not install, construct, maintain or use its facilities in a manner that damages or interferes with any existing facilities of another utility located in the public rights-of-way and agrees to relocate its facilities, if necessary, to accommodate another facility relocation that has a prior rights interest in the public rights-of-way. Activities related to the construction of Grantee’s facilities within the rights-ofway such as traffic control, backfilling, compaction and paving, and the location or relocation of lines and related facilities shall be subject to regulation by Town. Grantee shall keep accurate records of the location of all facilities in the public rights-of-way and furnish them to Town upon request.

If Town requires Grantee to relocate Grantee’s facilities which are located in private easements obtained by Grantee prior to Town’s acquisition of said property from which the facilities must be relocated, the entire cost of relocating Grantee’s facilities (including the cost of purchasing a new private easement if necessary) shall be borne by Town. Town shall also bear the entire cost of all subsequent

relocations of the relocated facilities required by Town, until such time as Town condemns or purchases Grantee’s private easement. B. Except as covered in Paragraph A above, Grantee shall bear the entire cost of relocating its facilities located on public rights-of-way, the relocation of which is necessary for Town’s carrying out of its governmental functions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Grantee is requested to perform work of a temporary nature on a governmental project to relieve construction problems which could be relieved by other means, the cost of said temporary work will be borne by Town or Town’s contractor working on the governmental project. Governmental functions are those duties imposed on Town, where the duties involve a general public benefit, not in the nature of a corporate or business undertaking for the corporate benefit and interest of Town. Governmental functions include, but are not limited to, the following: Any and all improvements to Town’s public rights-of-way; Establishing and maintaining domestic water systems, sanitary sewers, storm drains, and related facilities; Establishing and maintaining municipal parks, parking spaces, parkways, pedestrian malls, or grass, shrubs, trees and other vegetation for the purpose of landscaping any street or public property; Providing fire protection and other public safety functions; and Collection and disposal of garbage and recyclables.

Town will bear the entire cost of relocating any of Grantee’s facilities, the relocation of which is necessitated by the construction of improvements by or on behalf of Town in furtherance of a proprietary function. All functions of Town which are not governmental are proprietary. If Town participates in the cost of relocating Grantee’s facilities for any reason, the cost of relocation to Town shall not include any upgrade or improvement of Grantee’s facilities as they existed prior to relocation. Town will not exercise its right to require Grantee’s facilities to be relocated in an unreasonable or arbitrary manner, or to avoid its obligation under the Franchise. Town agrees to notify Grantee during the planning and design of Town’s projects in rights-ofway that may require relocation of Grantee’s facilities and to coordinate its construction plans and schedules with Grantee to determine the most cost-effective design to mitigate Grantee’s cost to relocate its facilities. Town agrees it will not require Grantee to relocate its facilities located within the public rights-of-way without providing Grantee adequate space within the rights-of-way to relocate the facilities that must be moved. Town will not plant any tree that can normally grow to a height of more than 25 feet under or adjacent to Grantee’s overhead power lines in the public rights-of-way. Grantee shall have the authority to prune or remove any trees or shrubs located within or hanging over the limits of the public rights-of-way of Town that in the judgment of Grantee may interfere with the construction, or endanger the operation, of the lines and/or facilities of Grantee. All said vegetation management work is to be done at Grantee’s expense and pursuant to A.N.S.I. Standard A300. Section 4. – Indemnification: Grantee shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, defend, indemnify, and hold Town harmless from and against any and all claims, costs, suits, damages, judgments, expenses and losses including, but not limited to attorney fees and court costs relating to, arising out of, or alleged to have resulted from the exercise of this Franchise by Grantee; provided, however, that such claims, expenses and losses are not the result of the willful misconduct or negligent acts or omissions of Town.

B. Grantee shall not install, construct, maintain or use its facilities in a manner that damages or interferes with any existing facilities of another utility located in the public right-ofway or public utility easement and agrees to relocate its facilities, if necessary, to accommodate another facility relocation that has a prior rights interest in the public rightsof-way or public utility easements. 3.2 Those phases of construction of Grantee’s facilities relating to traffic control, backfilling, compaction and paving, as well as the location or relocation of pipelines and related facilities herein provided for shall be subject to regulation by Town. Pursuant to A.R.S. § 40360.30 and any other applicable law, Grantee shall keep installation records of the location of all facilities in the public rights-of-way and public utility easements and will furnish or provide access to them to Town upon request. A. If Town requires Grantee to relocate Grantee’s facilities which are located in private easements obtained by Grantee prior to Town’s acquisition of said property from which the facilities must be relocated, then: a) the costs and expenditures associated with relocating Grantee’s facilities shall be borne by Grantee in accordance with Section 7.2 of this Franchise Agreement; except that b) the cost of purchasing of a new private easement if necessary shall be borne by Town, provided, however, such relocation is not essential to the health, welfare and safety of the general public. Notwithstanding the foregoing, should the Grantee obtain an easement prior to or during the development stage of a parcel, the Grantee shall abandon the easement, and based on final development plans approved by the Town, either (at the Town’s discretion) leave the facility as is, or relocate its utilities elsewhere within the future rights-of-way corridor. The development process is defined as the stage after a pre-application conference with the Town, which has occurred on the subject property. B. Except as covered in Paragraph A above, Grantee shall bear the entire cost of relocating its facilities located on public rights-of-way or public utility easements, subject to Section 7.2 of this Franchise Agreement, the relocation of which is necessary for Town to carry out its governmental functions. All functions of Town, which are not specifically determined by law to be proprietary, are governmental. Governmental functions include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) Any and all improvement to Town streets, alleys and avenues, and other Town property; (2) Establishing and maintaining storm drains, water lines, sewer lines, effluent lines, water wells, wastewater treatment facilities and any other facilities related thereto; (3) Establishing and maintaining municipal parks, parking, parkways, pedestrian malls, or grass, shrubs, trees and other vegetation for the purpose of landscaping any street or public property; (4) Providing fire protection and other public safety functions; (5) Collection and disposal of solid waste and recyclables; (6) Providing public transportation. C. The Town reserves its prior superior right to use the public rights-of-way and Town property, including the surface areas, for all public purposes, funded with public funds. When the Town uses its prior superior right to the public rights-of-way, or other Town property, the Grantee shall move its property that is located in the public rights-of-way, or on other Town property, at its own cost, to such location as the Town directs. D. Town will bear the reasonable cost of relocating any facilities, the relocation of which is necessitated by the construction of improvements by or on behalf of Town in furtherance of a proprietary function except as otherwise specifically provided herein. E. Subject to Section 7.2, Grantee shall bear the entire cost of relocating any facilities regardless of the function served, where the Town has a prior superior right to use the public right-of-way or public utility easement, or where Town facilities or other facilities occupying public right-of-way or public utility easement under authority of a Town permit, license or franchise, which must be relocated are already located in the public right-of-way or public utility easement and the conflict between the Grantee’s potential facilities and the existing facilities can only be resolved expeditiously as determined by Town, by the movement of the existing Town or permittee facilities. The Town and the Grantee agree that Town is not a party to disputes among permittees using the public right-of-way and public utility easements. F. If Town participates in the cost of relocating Grantee’s facilities for any reason, the cost to the Town shall be limited to those costs and expenditures reasonably incurred for relocating such facilities in accordance with Town ordinances and, where not in conflict therewith, applicable industry standards. Costs to the Town for relocation of Grantee’s facilities shall not include any upgrade or improvement of Grantee’s facilities as they existed prior to relocation. Prior to payment by Town, Grantee shall provide an itemization of

Subject to reimbursement under Section 7.2, Grantee shall remove, at Grantee’s sole cost, abandoned lines at the request of Town when required to facilitate construction of any municipal project or as Town determines is reasonably necessary to protect public health and safety. Grantee may contract with Town contractor for such removal.

Grantee shall reimburse the Town for permit fees/costs and for pavement (cut surcharge) damages fees for the location (or relocation) of Grantee’s facilities. Reimbursement for permit fees/costs (i.e. plan review, inspection, etc.) and pavement (cut surcharge) damage fees is separate, and in addition to, any other Franchise fees included in this Agreement. Section 4 – Indemnification; Insurance 4.1 Town shall in no way be liable or responsible for any accident or damage that may occur in the exercise of this Franchise by Grantee of its facilities under this Franchise, and the acceptance of this grant shall be deemed an agreement on the part of Grantee to indemnify and hold harmless the Town from and against any and all liability, loss, costs, legal fees, damages or any other expenses, which may be imposed on the Town by reason of the acts of the Grantee in the exercise of this Franchise, including the maintenance of barricades and traffic control devices in construction and maintenance areas. Grantee shall defend, indemnify, and save Town harmless from any expenses and losses incurred as a result of injury or damage to third persons occasioned by the exercise of this Franchise by Grantee, provided, however, that such claims, expenses and losses are not the result of any willful or grossly negligent acts of Town. 4.2 Grantee shall maintain throughout the term of this Franchise liability insurance and/ or a program of self-retention or general assets, to adequately insure and/or protect the legal liability of Grantee with respect to the installation, operation and maintenance of the gas lines together with all the necessary and desirable appurtenances authorized herein to occupy the public rights-of-way or public utility easements. Such insurance, selfretention or general asset program will provide protection for bodily injury and property damage including, without otherwise limiting the foregoing, contractual liability and legal liability for damages arising from explosion, collapse and underground incidents.

A five percent (5%) penalty shall be added to payments not made within the required time, and interest of one and one-half percent (11/2%) shall accrue on the entire amount due. Interest and penalties can be waived by the Town for reasonable cause or if casualty renders Grantee unable to compute or estimate the liability from business records. For the purpose of verifying amounts payable hereunder and upon reasonable notice, the books and records of Grantee shall be subject to inspection or audit by duly authorized officers or representatives of the Town at reasonable times. 6.2 Grantee shall pay Franchise Fees pursuant to the terms of the previously executed Franchise Agreement between Grantee and Town through June 30, 2011. Beginning July 1, 2011 payment as described in the preceding paragraphs shall be payable in quarterly amounts within thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar quarter. 6.3 If at any time during the term of this Franchise Grantee is paying any municipality in the State of Arizona a Franchise Fee greater than two percent (2%) of Grantee’s gross receipts in such municipality, then the percentage set forth in Section 6 shall be increased to match the greater percentage amount Grantee is paying to such other municipality under a franchise agreement. If Town requests Grantee to match such greater Franchise Fee, Town agrees to incorporate the terms, conditions and limitations applicable to the payment of the greater Franchise Fee to such municipality, into this Franchise Agreement. Should the Grantee or the Town determine that Grantee over collected or under collected the required amount of Franchise Fees from its customers, Grantee shall immediately adjust its Franchise Fee collections to ensure that no more or no less is collected from its customers as is required to be remitted to the Town. 6.4 In addition to the foregoing Franchise Fees, Grantee shall pay charges, taxes, and fees as described in Section 7 of this Agreement. Section 7 — Additional Fees and Taxes 7.1 Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, Grantee shall, in addition to the payment provided in Section 6, pay the following charges, taxes and fees as established in a code or ordinance properly adopted by the Town: A. General ad valorem property taxes; B.

Other charges, taxes or fees levied upon businesses generally through the Town provided said charge, tax or fee is a flat fee per year and that the annual amount of such fee does not exceed the amount of similar fees paid by any other business operated within Town; and D. Applicable and customary permit and inspection fees (i.e. plan review, inspection, etc.) and pavement (cut surcharge) damage fees, established by ordinance of Town, necessary for the construction, installation and other work to be conducted by Grantee hereunder. Such expenses shall be considered for reimbursements by the Town from the Capital Expenditure Fund. Town shall charge any allowable expenses against the Capital Expenditure Fund and provide Grantee with quarterly reports on the amounts of such deductions. 7.2 In addition to and separate from the Franchise Fee set forth above, the Town and the Grantee agree that beginning July 1, 2011 the Town shall allow additional compensation to be paid by Grantee to the Town in quarterly payments in the amount equal to two percent (2%) of the gross revenues of Grantee as defined in Section 6 of this Agreement.

Costs incurred by Grantee that are reimbursed by the Southwest Gas Capital Expenditures Fund may not be included by the Grantee in its rate base nor shall Grantee seek a return on investment for any such reimbursed capital expenditures.

Drew

Continued from Page 5 wounded with two holes though him. It has not definitely established, according to The Republican’s information, whether Drew ever fired a shot or not, or whether the other was man was injured in the battle. No bullet holes were found in the room that seemed to have come from his direction, however, and the murderer was able to make a hasty departure as soon as his victim fell. Drew is spoken of as a man well liked in the community, and no incident is recalled in which he participated that would be likely to have left a spirit of revenge strong enough to stimulate a man to murder. In fact the only person that seem might have borne him revenge is a Mexican whom he arrested a short time ago for beating his wife, but so far as learned here there is no certainly that the murderer was a Mexican. The only other incentive suggested is the proposed robbery of the saloon, and if that was planned the murderer gave it up after he killed Drew, evidently believing that time was more valuable that money at that juncture. The officers are following every possible clew, according to report, but at this time will not admit that they have any definite suspicions as to the identity of the culprit. Drew went to Ray from Pearce, a mining camp in Cochise county, it is understood, and his was body was brought fro Ray yesterday afternoon , as far as Tempe, and from there sent to Pearce on last night’s train. The Courtland paper dated Saturday, May 20, 1911 gives this account: Monday night, at about midnight, E. L. Drew, a deputy sheriff of Pinal county, was killed in Sonoratown, a suburb of Ray, while resisting a holdup of one of the saloons. Mr. Drew was well known in Courtland, where he held a commission as deputy sheriff (Confirmed by Christine Rhode, Cochise Co. Recorder.) for a considerable time and was generally liked, and probably as well known throughout the valley and surrounding country as any man in the territory, having been a resident of this section for many years. The body was brought to Pearce by a brother, Charles, who was also employed at Ray and the funeral took place Wednesday afternoon . . . A report reached Courtland Thursday, that Jack Monroe, suspected as being the man who fired the fatal shots, had been captured near Ray, suffering from a bad gun shot wound in the breast, which makes it appears the Mr. Drew made a commendable resistance, even though he lost his life in doing so.

Special Edition

Supervisors approve $2.1M of budget reductions for FY 2011-12 FLORENCE – In their Wednesday meeting, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors took a major step in balancing its upcoming budget by adopting $2.1 million in cuts for the new fiscal year, which starts in July. County Manager Fritz Behring has recommended $5 million in cuts to the general fund for next year as part of a multi-year effort to bring county spending in line with existing revenues. To date, staff has identified and the Board has approved, $3.3 million in cuts to the general fund and $1.4 million in other funds. The county manager has said the remaining $1.7 million in spending cuts will come from all departments – primarily in the form of reductions to operating line items. The first budget reduction proposal the Supervisors considered and approved was a $617,000 cut to Correctional Health, a Pinal County Health & Human Services program. These cuts would eliminate five full-time positions and 10 part-time positions in the jail health program. This represents a 13 percent reduction in operating costs. The reductions to this department came after an examination of Yavapai County’s privately-run correctional health system. Adopting the “private contractor” staffing model used by Yavapai County will save vital county funds. The second budget reduction option presented to the Board involved a restructuring in Pinal County Development Services, cutting $1.5 million. The current economic crisis in the United States and Arizona has resulted in continued declines in developmentrelated services. According to projections, revenues in this area are forecast to be flat for the next two to three years. The reductions in Development Services will impact personnel and services. Twenty positions will be eliminated in six departments. Development Services personnel will reduce staffing at the Oracle and Casa Grande satellite offices. Supervisor Snider added that he would like to see the county use technology when possible to serve people who may not have the time or ability to travel to Florence. The Board voted to implement the Development Services budget and staffing reductions. The third and final budgetrelated program ended in a 2-1 vote. It involved a proposal to reduce or eliminate a lease subsidy for county van pools. The van pool program began as part of a federal initiative to improve air quality and reduce traffic by encouraging large employers to reduce single vehicle commuters through employee trip reduction incentives. Currently, the county pays an amount equal to 50 percent a van pool lease. Leases vary based on the size and model of the van. Employees who belong to the van pool are responsible for the rest of the lease costs as well as fuel, cleaning and maintenance costs. After cutbacks in prior budget years, the county has 17 vans in operation with a county contribution totaling $125,000. After a vigorous discussion about the role of the van pools, the Supervisors approved a 25 percent cut in the subsidy. The next scheduled meeting for the Board of Supervisors is Wednesday, May 11, at 9:30 AM at the main county complex in Florence.

CVRMC earns CAP accreditation Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center Laboratory has been awarded accreditation by the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologist (CAP), based on the results of a recent onsite inspection. The laboratory’s Doctor of Pathology, Achyut K. Bhattacharyya, MD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the

services being provided. Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center Laboratory is one of 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories worldwide. The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program began in the early 1960s. It is recognized by the federal government as more stringent than the government’s own inspection program. During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine

the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, as well as the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, in addition to the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.

Carmen Lopez, Sandra Montgomery, Dr. Achyut Bhattacharyya, Stayce Underwood, Brittany Gonzales, David Haddick, Norm Ratliff are just some of the Lab staff who are excited about the newest accolades the CVRMC lab has garnered. Other staff not pictured are: Marcelino Olivarez, Art Rocco, Anecita Uy, Kim Benally, Josh VanWoesik, Peggy Foerster. (Submitted photo) The College of American Pathologists is a medical society that serves more than 17,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world’s largest association

composed exclusively of Board-Certified pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. The College is an advocate for high-quality and cost-effective patient care.

County warns restaurant, bar owners to beware of ‘imposter inspectors’ FLORENCE – Pinal County’s Environmental Health department is warning restaurant and bar owners that potential scam artists are making threatening phone calls to area bars and restaurants claiming to be health inspectors. The ‘imposter inspectors’ who are making these phone calls are sometimes demanding money or threatening to shut down the business. “We do not announce our inspections in advance, all of our inspectors carry identification and in no case would we threaten to shut down a restaurant over the phone,” Reg Glos, Director of Pinal County Environmental Health. “This appears to be a scam and, according to my colleagues in other jurisdictions, it is not unique to Pinal County. So far, we have received enough calls about this to merit an advisory to food service establishments in Pinal County.” Restaurant inspections are routine and unannounced, Glos said. The only time a restaurant would know of an inspection in advance is if corrective action is required and a re-inspection is set. “Sometimes we find things that need to be corrected immediately, such as food stored at an improper temperature. Other times, restaurants are given time to correct the violations and a re-inspection is scheduled,” Glos explained. Here are some points to keep in mind about Pinal County Environmental Health inspectors: * They carry County identification and business cards, * They do not charge money or collect fees during a random inspection, * Inspectors do not accept tips, gifts or other compensation. “This scam preys on the fears of bar and restaurant owners who worry about their livelihood, so this is particularly disturbing to hear about,” Glos said. If someone receives one of these calls, Pinal County Environmental Health recommends that the recipient take down as much information from the caller as possible, including name, call back number and caller ID, if available. The information should then be relayed to city or county law enforcement officials. Environmental Health’s food program can be reached at 520-866-6807. County health inspectors monitor food service establishments to ensure that the food and beverages are safe for consumers to eat or drink. They enforce established standards for health and safety. They conduct inspections at restaurants, bars, grocery stores, school cafeterias, day care kitchens, mobile food vendors and at special events where food is served.
