Leslie Anne West To Leslie Anne West, the world was a stage in which she played many parts: artist (paintings, sculpture, jewelry), mother, gardener, actress and entrepreneur. Leslie resided in Nevada City, California from 1966 to 1991. While there, she was a partner in a small restaurant, Bunce’s, in Grass Valley, CA. She then purchased Blackthorn’s, a basket shop in Grass Valley, and expanded it into a fine gift store. Balckthorn’s was later moved to a location on Broad Street in Nevada City. In 1975, she partnered with her friend Diane Fetterly and husband Bruce to start The Foothill Theatre Company. She appeared in several productions, most notably ‘The Glass Menagerie’ and ‘Summer and Smoke’. Leslie was also the Company’s business manager. In 1991, Leslie moved to Scottsdale and attended art classes at the Scottsdale Community College. She relocated in 1996 and established her studio in Superior. Leslie passed away in Superior on July 26 at the age of 67, following a lengthy illness. She was born Leslie Anne Borden in Pittsburgh on May 7, 1945 and attended high school in Shingle Springs, CA. She is survived by her son, Nathaniel (Ivonne) Borden West of El Monte, CA., husband Bruce Kimball West of Burbank, mother Maxine Borden of Ocean Shores, WA., sisters Bonnie Hall of Anchorage, AK and Christine Borden of FL, and niece Wendy Hudspeth of Anthem.

Generosity and compassion abundant By Mila Besich-Lira Last month the Lopez family of Superior experienced two major losses in the span of seven days. The family lost two brothers Joey and Steve, both of whom were active members of the community. Together they left behind a legacy of family, friends, and many memories but their unexpected losses created an undue and large financial burden on their families. When their friends and family learned of these troubles a benefit was planned, advertised and executed within two weeks. On Sunday hundreds of people, young and old, gathered at the Los Hermanos ball room to listen to the music of Angie Gomez and the Powerdrive

Band, Los Guys, and the Superior All Star Band. All of these musicians donated their time to the benefit. Steve Lopez was a well known musician and played with many of the band members and so the benefit also gave everyone an opportunity to listen to the music he recorded before. Roy “Potts”Chavez was the master of ceremonies for the benefit and he donated the use of his sound equipment and disk jockey services. The volunteers who organized the event gathered up donations for multiple raffles and auctions that were given away during the event. One of the major prizes raffled off was a three hour party bus rental. All of the food was

donated so that ensured that the $10 admission fee was going straight to the family.

Those in attendance commented at how it had been such a long time

US 60 expansion coming soon ‌ not a bypass

ADOT workers Monday were using a helicopter to ferry heavy supplies from one side of US 60 to the other and below where work was being done on a bridge near the US 60 Park. (James Carnes photos)

By Mila Besich-Lira Representatives from the Arizona Department of Transportation gave two in-depth presentations at the Superior Town Council meeting last week. The first presentation was about how ADOT funds transportation projects and how they are planned throughout the state. Kathy Boyle of ADOT explained that with the recent decline in the economy and rising fuel costs that revenues to ADOT have declined. She explained that monies to fund ADOT come through vehicle registrations and fuel taxes however those fees have not increased with inflation and, with fewer people buying new cars, it is creating a decline in revenues at ADOT which stalls construction and maintenance projects throughout the state. The second presentation by Rod Lane from ADOT gave an overview of the ADOT projects that will be completed over the next three years in the Globe District. He explained that due to current funding most of the projects in the district were maintenance and preservation projects and not expansion work. One of the hot topics in the presentation was the expansion of US 60 from the Arboretum to Superior; that project is called the Silver King Project. He explained that the project will extend the four lanes where they end now just west of the Arboretum into Superior at the 177 bridge. From the Arboretum to the Superior Airport the highway will be four lanes of divided highway once entering Superior the highway will be four lanes undivided with a turning lane. This project is planned and budgeted; construction is expected to begin in 2014. ADOT has budgeted $45 million to the project. The Silver King project is one of the only expansion projects slated in the ADOT

budget. Some of the concerns raised about the four lanes coming through Superior is the access to parking for businesses on the highway. Councilmember Chris Tomerlin expressed his concerns that the four lane expansion will hurt the businesses on the highway. He asked if it would possible to just leave the highway as it is. The ADOT representative explained that the four lanes are planned but they will be working with local community leaders and business owners regarding the right of way issues on the highway. Currently many of the businesses are using ADOT right of way as their parking areas.

1134 Hwy. 60 Superior, AZ 85173-2647

Local community members have also been concerned that ADOT is planning a US 60 bypass around Superior and the Globe-Miami area. The ADOT representative explained that the bypass is only in the studying phase, the project is not in the planning phase and has not been budgeted. In his presentation he explained that the state transporation board approved the study of a bypass but they have not allocated any budgetary funds for planning or construction. There had been speculation in the community that ADOT had already made the final plans on both projects without any community

input. Lane explained that ADOT will be conducting public hearings and will be working with Town Officials such as the town manager and mayor to ensure the needs of the community are discussed. Local residents can expect to see some construction in the area of the Arboretum this fall as they begin construction on new parking lots for the park. This construction is not part of the US 60 expansion project and is a separate project that is being coordinated through ADOT for the Arboretum.

Hank Gutierrez resigns from Superior Town Council after conflict-of-interest verdict

By Chase Kamp Superior Sun In a letter submitted on

Oct. 3, 2012, Superior Town Councilman Hank Gutierrez stepped down

from his seat after a Pinal County Superior Court judge found him guilty

of violating state law for making a vote that was found to be a financial conflict of interest. The rest of the Council accepted his resignation in a vote at its regular meeting on Oct. 4. The Arizona Attorney General’s Office filed an indictment against Gutierrez in Jun. for voting on an agreement between the Town and Resolution Copper Mining while he was allegedly a contractor with the company. According to the indictment, Gutierrez “possessed a substantial interest” in the agreement between the Town and RCM. In the court’s Sept. decision, Gutierrez was found guilty of a class-six felony for failing to refrain from making a public vote in which he would benefit financially. In 2008, RCM signed a Mutual Benefits Agreement

(MBA) with the Town that provided funding for town improvements following completion of the Southeastern Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act. The Town of Superior in return agreed to work together with the company. In Dec. 2010, RCM renegotiated the agreement with the Town recognizing that the land exchange bill was taking longer than expected to be approved by Congress. The town council also unanimously approved a new MBA that has since led to more than $400,000 in funding to the town for improvements and other needs. Gutierrez was among those who voted for the agreement. “Our company policy is not to comment on pending legal proceedings and any questions regarding potential conflict of interests should be directed to the Town of Superior,”

Resolution Copper said in a written statement. “We can confirm that Hank Gutierrez has been a contractor to RCM since early in the project’s history.” In his letter of resignation, Gutierrez wrote that his decision was not made with personal gain in mind. “My vote, as always, was made with the best interests of the town and its citizens foremost in my mind,” he wrote. Gutierrez was required to leave his post on the council per state law. Councilman John Tameron said those on the council with family ties to RCM, himself included, need to be steadfast in knowing which votes may be improper. “I have to recuse myself at times and keep it in mind for the future,” Tameron said. “This is a sad way to leave the council.”

By Sylvia P. Perez Special to the Sun The Class of 1962 is busy and excited about this weekend, Oct. 13, because this class will be celebrating its fiftieth class reunion. The class considers themselves a big family, because of all the years spent

together, in and out of their school years, and the communication that has continued. The schedule is a group class picture on the steps of the old high school, tours of the schools, then a social and dinner at the Jade Grill. This class has had the misfortune

of having 18 deceased classmates that they are aware of, but, whom will always be remembered. The Superior High School Class of 1962 is in the years of going to bed with the chickens, walking with care, wearing dentures, having knee replacements and thinning hair, although some still have dark hair. The schedule was planned early, because some can’t drive at night, not being as young as they used to be, but, all are thankful for the years they have had together. May the friendships continue until the end and may it be a joyous and fabulous fiftieth reunion.

Ad Deadlines for the Copper Basin News, Superior Sun and San Manuel Miner have been changed. The new deadlines for all regular display ads Class of 1962 Reunion set and all classified ads is 5 p.m. Friday. for this weekend in Superior Please call the CBN/ Sun office at 520-3635554 or email cbnsun@ or the Miner office at 520-385-2266 or email miner@minersunbasin. com to place your ads or for more information.
