Letter to the Editor: In full support of Mammoth recall Editor, San Manuel Miner: A response to Mammoth to have Recall, General Election in March: As a citizen of Mammoth most of my life, and as a citizen who has been attending monthly council meetings for the past year, and as the wife of a town employee of 12-1/2 years, I am a little confused by what Councilmen Bart Goff and Robert Koch had to say in their own defense. Goff says he has served on the Mammoth Town Council for more than 10 years and has served the community with no agenda and only what is in the best interest of our town? Mr. Goff, is it not true that most of the council meetings that I have attended, you were not even there? Do we need to take a closer look at documentation for the past year or more to see how many meetings you have actually missed? But, you claim you’re here for the people of Mammoth, right? Well, it must be in the spirit because most of the time we don’t even see you! I am also confused by your statement as a lifelong resident of Mammoth wanting what is best for our town. Mr. Goff, I, too, am a lifelong resident of Mammoth and I have one question for you. Have you seen the condition of the town, including cemetery, parks and roads? Mr. Goff, can you explain, as the Public Works Commissioner and lifelong resident, what you are doing about it or is this what you call in the best interest of our town? I have seen citizens, Vice Mayor Frances Wickham, Councilman Al Barcelo and Councilman Rudy Romo complain about the conditions. You usually just sit quietly, when you do attend a meeting, and let everyone else do all the talking. When you were given the task/duty to review documents for an appeal hearing, with plenty of time given, you failed to do so; and, at the second illegal hearing, you completely changed your entire vote. Wow! Both you and Koch knew my husband won his appeal due to two tied/failed votes,

according to Robert’s Rules of Order, which Council follows; but you went along with the second illegal meeting, even after Wickham, Barcelo and Romo, strongly opposed citizens, even spoke out against having a second illegal meeting and a third vote. But you serve the community with no agenda and good intentions, right Mr.Goff? Mr. Koch, you stated that you perform your Councilman duties with honesty, integrity and fairness. Mr. Koch, were you really being fair as the police commissioner during my husband’s ordeal? As I recall, you never once spoke to my husband or even tried to get his side of the story! My husband has been a dedicated employee for 12-1/2 years, which should mean something to you, but didn’t. The employee you did side with has since moved out of state, after a very short stint as a city employee; and there was never any conflict of interest there, right Mr. Koch? When my husband called you and asked you to get involved on one incident, your exact words were, “I will do this for you and call you right back.” Mr. Koch, were you being honest with my husband or after 10 months gone by, are you still planning on getting back to him? My husband was only asking from you, after getting nowhere with two supervisors, was he getting paid or not during his Admin leave because he has a wife and four small children to support. Councilman Al Barcelo took care of it because he cares and you showed you didn’t. Shame on you, Mr. Koch! You should have been fair, as the Police Commissioner, by gathering

all the facts and talking to other senior employees, who agreed with my husband about the turmoil in the department, but you did neither. When you thanked the Hearing Officer and Rachelle Sanchez for doing such a good job (matter of opinion) at a meeting, in front of my husband and me, also including the citizens there to support us, I found that to be distasteful and a cheap shot, knowing the situation to be very sensitive. So, would you call that having integrity, Mr. Koch? I have also observed you being absent at several meetings but you will get on the phone to cast your vote against my husband because you’re all about fairness and having no agenda, right? Lastly, Mr. Koch, are you not on tape, at a budget

meeting, saying “We need to hit them where they live.” in reference to you wanting to collect cemetery debts from citizens and raising rates? “Hit them where they live.” Wow! How sad! So, yeah, I can see why you and Goff are being recalled and I fully support it! Mr. Goff and Mr. Koch, please quit patting yourselves

on the back along with certain others because, I can assure you, several Mammoth citizens are not! It’s time for a change in Mammoth and new leadership. So, please go and vote in March. Thank you, Al Barcelo, Francis Wickham and Rudy Romo for all that you do for our town, for caring and for

having your own voices. Goff and Koch want to defend themselves and be heard but not once did they ever talk to my husband, so he can defend himself and be heard. Respectfully and freely stating only my opinion. /s/ Dulce McIntosh Proud Mammoth Citizen

This semi truck fell off a jack killing an Oracle man. (Photo courtesy of PCSO) An Oracle man was killed Oct. 7 when a semi-truck he was working on slipped off the jack and crushed him. Pinal County Sheriff’s Deputies and emergency medical personnel were called to a home in the 2000 block of West Oracle Ranch Road after a woman called 911 and reported that a semi-truck had fallen on her father. Another person at the scene told dispatchers that the vehicle had been moved off the victim and that he was not breathing. A medical helicopter was put on standby by medical personnel, but it was later cancelled after the victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim was transported by the Medical Examiner’s Office and the call was turned over to Pinal County Homicide Detectives. The name of the victim was not released by Pinal County Sheriff’s Office. Elias Johnson, Public Information Officer for PCSO, said that the investigation is ongoing, but that all indications are that this was an accident.

Road receives name change to honor early residents By Mila Lira The Pinal County Board of Supervisors recently approved a name change for Seventh Avenue in San Manuel. Supervisor

Pete Rios initiated the application to rename Seventh Avenue to Willeford Road. The name is being changed to recognize

Daisy and Henry Willeford for their involvement in the community of San Manuel. The Willefords were also one of the first families to move to San

Manuel. In his request to change the name of the road, Supervisor Rios thought an honor like this would help remember the Willeford’s pioneer

spirit when it came to making San Manuel a thriving community during copper’s heyday. The County will be planning a ceremony to

commemorate this name change and honor the Willefords. Specific event information is not yet available.

Sky is the Limit for SBCO’s Walkathon XV On Saturday, Oct. 22, you’ll see the streets of SaddleBrooke filled with walkers wearing sky-blue shirts and lots of smiles, too. This annual walk benefits programs such as Kids’ Closet and tutoring and enrichment programs for kids in San Manuel, Mammoth, Hayden, Oracle and as far north as the San Carlos Apache Reservation. The 15th Annual Walkathon, a community tradition, will get underway at 7:45 a.m., with a warm-up session at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse, 64500 East SaddleBrooke Boulevard (825-3048). The walk will begin at 8 a.m., on

a signal from membership Vice-President and long-time Walkathon volunteer Ken Siarkiewicz. The walk, all the way round Ridgeview Boulevard, will end at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse. Water stations will be all along the route, along with water and doggie treats for our four-legged friends. Walkers will have a choice of delicious foods at the full hot breakfast and great prizes at a raffle. This year’s walk is dedicated to the memory of Sue Ambler. New this year will be a continuously running slide show of past Walkathons and an area where 2011 sponsors

will display their products and services. We hope you’ll be there! It’s easy to get in on the fun and to get some healthy exercise and help very worthwhile programs for youth at the same time. You can register for the Walkathon in person at the Community Outreach Office, Suite L, in the commercial shopping center in SaddleBrooke. A friendly volunteer will help you register and pick out a tee-shirt or tee-shirts, too. You can also sign up online at org and pick up your shirt at the office or at the event on See Walkathon, Page 17

Town of Mammoth projects reach completion By Jennifer R. Carnes Folks in the Town of Mammoth should be proud. Just in the past two weeks several projects have reached completion, leaving the town a bit brighter and more welcoming. On Oct. 7, the Town of Mammoth officially cut the ribbon for the newly expanded and renovated Charles Clark Community Center. Those in attendance were also celebrating the official completion of the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Mammoth sidewalk project. Those driving through Mammoth on a regular basis were probably


the first to notice the sidewalk’s completion but it wasn’t until Oct. 12 that the end of the project came blazingly into view. Mammoth Town Clerk Rachelle Sanchez confirmed that the sidewalk lights were officially turned on Oct. 12. “They were waiting for a part to come in,” said Sanchez about the delay. The sidewalk project was started in 2005 and included two phases, the second of which was just finished. ADOT handled all the financial details, Sanchez said. The town was consulted initially on the design of the sidewalk which runs the length of town along Highway 77 when the grant (under

the Highway Safety Improvement Program) was awarded. The second of the two phases was delayed for six years due to ADOT budget constraints. The second phase cost $660,000. “I always see someone using it,” Sanchez said about the new sidewalk. The community center project was funded with two grants awarded directly to the Town of Superior. Initially, the project was supposed to only entail renovating the existing building using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from 2010, but Sanchez was able to secure a second grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to expand the center. Sanchez explained that the Town had to obtain special permission from the federal department to combine the two grants. With $137,507 from the CDBG grant and the additional $142,000 from HUD, the Town was able to commit $280,000 to the project. The building looks nothing like it did before Far West Developers of Tucson began construction on it in June. Gone are the outside bathrooms and awful flooring. Gone are the back doors that wouldn’t open properly. Gone is the not up-to-date kitchen. The sparkling new building is twice the size of the old center. It has See Mammoth, Page 16

San Manuel’s Open Air Market offers shoppers a ‘hodgepodge’ of goodness By John Hernandez The San Manuel Open Air Market has been in town for four years now but many people still don’t know about it. Some of the vendors joked that it is the best kept secret in town. Laurie, the coordinator for the vendors, welcomes anyone who would like to sell something or is looking for something to buy to come and visit and see what the market is like. Many of the market’s regulars come to socialize and sit and talk over coffee or a cold drink. “You don’t have to buy anything, just stop by and visit,” Laurie said. There are tables set up and plenty of good things to eat. There are tamales, both green corn and red chili, and menudo every week. You can eat them there with beans and rice or take a dozen home with you. Homemade breads, cinnamon rolls, brownies, cookies and other sweet treats are available to go along with your coffee. Arts and crafts are for sale and sometimes fresh produce and eggs are available. Michie Smith owns Frog’s Hair Crossing. She sells homemade people shaped dog biscuits that are all natural (no preservatives), jerky made from London broil and jellies such as jalapeño, pomegranate and prickly pear. She also does handicrafts and had some dream catchers made with devil’s claw. But why Frog’s Hair? Michie said, “Because there is nothing finer than frog’s hair.”

Other vendor’s crafts included jewelry, hot pads and dish towels. “It is a little hodgepodge of everything,” said one of the vendors. On the second Saturday of the month, the Cardells perform live at the market. The Cardells play rock and roll from the 60s. The cost to set up and sell items is only $5. You can come and sell anything you want. The open air market is similar to a swap meet. You can find good bargains there. If you are interested in setting up, contact Laurie at (520) 385-4215 or show up at the Market. The San Manuel Open Air Market is located at the Community Presbyterian Church at 801 McNab Parkway. The market is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon. It’s set up under the eaves of the church so it’s also open rain or shine.

Safe Journey House has new director By John Hernandez The Safe Journey House in San Manuel now has a Director. The Eastern Pinal County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (EPCCADV) has selected Carol Heflebower as the Director of their advocacy center. Carol and her husband Clay are recent transplants from Annapolis, Maryland. Carol said the reason they moved to Arizona was that they got tired of the snow and cold. “You don’t have to shovel hot,” she said. The couple lives in

SaddleBrooke. In Maryland, Carol was a pharmaceutical representative for more than 20 years. She and her husband had a medical equipment business. When she wasn’t working, Carol volunteered for a faith based non-profit organization that provided services for the homeless in a large county in Maryland. She later was hired as a case manager for transitional housing, permanent housing and first housing programs. In working with the homeless she learned to identify a lot of needs and

their underlying causes as well as how to provide information and services. Her career has been centered around services for people in need. Carol accepted the position at Safe Journey House because she felt she “could be effective here, helping to identify underlying causes of domestic violence and providing services and referrals for healing and growth.” She is excited about meeting the community leaders and acquainting them with the dynamics of domestic violence and having them help us to

improve the services to the population. “It will be a significant challenge here learning local resources and the community,” Carol said. “I will learn fast about the community. It’s ok to get lost once in awhile and ask directions.” She added, “I really look forward to growing the coalition, forming strong partnerships with other providers and learning about the community. The Safe Journey Home will work to increase services and strive to address and eliminate domestic abuse, the new director vowed.

Carol Heflebower is the new Safe Journey House Director. (John Hernandez photo)

Trunk or Treat : An eerie night that leaves dentists shaking in their smocks Trunk or Treat is an opportunity, they will tell you, to provide the kids of the Tri-Community a safe place to trick or treat. Oh, but is it? Is it really? Or, is it a diabolical plot masterminded by fiends from beyond the grave to rot out the teeth of small children and break the hearts of dentists everywhere? Perhaps hatched by some nefarious non-brusher of teeth? Imagine yourself strapped to the dentist’s chair, mouth forced open and the drill – oooh that high speed drill – swooping in to clear away the edges of newly formed cavities, with the mad cackling of the fiend in your ear, as the dentist, tears in his eyes, forges bravely on in his fight against dental caries. There’s something that puts zombies and ghouls in perspective, heh kiddies? Though the prospect is

frightening, it is also avoidable, if you remember to rinse well and carry an approved toothbrush, as you make your way through a night of candy-laden madness. It’s the usual night in the usual way, minus the newly called for smell of mint and scrubbing noises. The San Manuel High School’s Auditorium Parking Lot becomes a delightful romping ground for tots on Monday, Oct. 31, beginning at 6 p.m. and with a hearty hail of ‘Trunk or Treat,’ the gaiety will commence. Don’t forget, if you want to participate as a giver of fine confectionery suited to the palate of the young, to reserve a “parking space” or a vendor space, which is free for parking and non-profit vendors, but $20 for vendors who are seeking to make a profit, you need to get your registration form filled out

and in to the school secretary by Oct. 27 at noon at the latest. These may be dropped off, emailed to armentl@ or faxed to

The Mammoth Police Report is submitted by the department. According to state law, there are two methods by which police may arrest suspected offenders. The suspect may be physically taken into the department and booked into jail, or the arresting officer may write a citation and release the suspect to appear in court later. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Oct. 9 A brush fire was reported in the area of Main Street. Mammoth Fire and Police responded and the fire was contained.

Jim Cowlin teaches basic digital photography in Oracle By Guy Harrison Media and Marketing Specialist ORACLE, Ariz. – Local freelance photographer Jim Cowlin will offer Basic Digital Photography this fall through Central Arizona College’s community education program. The class will be held at Mountain Vista School in Oracle on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 5-8 p.m. and costs $25. During the class, which is designed for community enrichment, students will study the basics of digital photography, including tips for lighting and composition. Students will be asked to bring their cameras and instruction booklets to class. Cowlin is a freelance photographer based in Oracle, specializing in nature, travel and fine art. For more 30 years he has been documenting the landscape of the Western United States and has built a collection of images that range from broad panoramic views to intimate close-ups. Cowlin’s photographs can be licensed for use in travel and

nature magazines, websites and promotional materials. He provides detailed captions facilitating their use in science textbooks. He also specializes in the production of fine art prints for use in corporate offices, hotels and healthcare facilities. Using high resolution scans of film-based images or digital captures, he makes beautifully detailed, archival prints in almost any size. Cowlin’s current work in progress is documenting US Route 89 between Canada and Mexico. By concentrating on Highway 89, he is able to shoot in 20 national parks and monuments and document the landscape of the West from the Rocky Mountains, across the Colorado Plateau and into the arid mountains and valleys of the Southwestern Desert. His photographs range from the tourist meccas of Yellowstone and Grand Canyon to less well-known attractions such as the Logan Canyon National Scenic Byway. The photographs from the US Route 89 Project form a dynamic portrait of this vital

and fast-growing region. For more information about CAC’s Community Education program, or to register for this class, please contact Muriel Thomas by e-mail at muriel., or by phone at 520-494-6616.

The Miners continue to roll down the tracks heading into a good playoff seeding as they currently sit at a #9 AIA Division V State Power Ranking and at #3 in Section III. The Miners sit behind Thatcher 8 – 0 and Willcox 7 - 1 in Section III. In the first quarter, the Miners did not take long to get on the scoreboard as they took their opening drive in for a score. San Manuel began the drive at their own 33 yard line – marching down the ball to the Hawks’ 10 yard in three plays with big runs by John Ruiz. Jared Gonzalez would cap off the drive with a 10 yard run into the end zone for the touchdown. The PAT kick attempt was no good for a 6 – 0 lead with 10:33 on the clock. The Miners drove 67 yards in four plays taking 1:22 on the drive. On the first possession for the Hawks – Tanque Verde turned the ball over on downs after nine plays, giving the Miners the ball back.

Junior High Miners finish regular season 5–1 By Frank Smith The San Manuel Junior High football team finished the regular season with a record of 5 – 1 with after posting a 22 – 8 win over Eloy on Oct. 11 at home. The Miners were up for the challenge as Eloy would be a tough opponent. Both teams would hold their own in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Miners would get on the scoreboard after putting together a 78 yard, nine play drive – highlighted by running backs Stephen Faulstich and capped off by wide receiver Ysidro Wasko with a 31 yard run on the reverse play for the touchdown. The two point play by running back Armando Lopez was good for an 8 – 0 lead with 2:10 left before the half. Eloy would get the ball before the half but turned the ball over on downs with the Miners running out the clock to take the lead into the half. In the third quarter, the Miners would take their opening drive in for a score. San Manuel began the drive at their own six yard line, marching down field with Lopez picking up major yardage along the way to set up Faulstich for the 13 yard blast into the end zone for the touchdown. The two point conversion failed for See Jr. Miners, Page 13

Page 12


Continued from Page 10 25 yard touchdown run on the fourth play of the drive. The PAT kick was no good for a 12 – 0 lead with 3:48 left in the first quarter. The Miners drove 59 yards in four plays taking 1:06 on the drive. The next possession for the Hawks resulted in a punt after three plays. The Miners would give the ball up on downs after facing a fourth and 17 on an incomplete pass.

San Manuel Miner, San Manuel, Arizona Now in the second quarter, the Hawks lined up at their own 43 yard line after taking over on downs but were not able to sustain a drive with the unforgiving Miner defense forcing the punt. The Miners lined up at their own 20 yard line. Ruiz and Gonzalez combined to move the ball to the 44 on two plays. Sierra would go to work picking up gains to the Hawks 40 yard line and then the 22 yard line to set up Valdez with a 22 yard touchdown run on the next

play. The two point attempt by lineman Daniel Renteria failed for an 18 – 0 lead with 7:15 on the clock. The Miners drove 80 yards in six plays taking 1:38 on the drive. The Miners’ relentless defense once again forced the punt after a three and out. San Manuel’s offense would line up at their own 45 yard line, but were soon facing a second down and 45 yards to go after several penalties and a loss – lining up at their own 20 yard line. Sierra then called

Gonzalez’s number – handing off the ball to his left side, Gonzalez then turned the corner-hitting the sideline and was gone for an 80 yard touchdown run. The PAT kick by Jose Damien was good for a 25 – 0 lead with 4:23 on the clock. The Miners drove 80 yards in two plays taking 1:10 on the drive. The Miners’ defense would not let up-forcing yet another punt. San Manuel lined up at the Hawks 45 yard line. The Miners would score once again-this time Sierra called wide receiver Clark Montano’s number several plays later. On third down and 17 to go from the Hawks’ 25 yard line, Sierra dropped back and fired a pass into the end zone where Montano would make the catch for a 25 yard completion for the touchdown. The two point try failed for a 31 – 0 lead with 1:01 left in the half. Tanque Verde received the kick off and began their drive at their own 14 yard line, playing it safe running the ball up the middle to run out the time in the half. In the third quarter, the Hawks sustained more of a drive moving the ball from their own 35 yard line to the Miners 49 in seven plays only to punt the ball away. San Manuel would line up deep in their own territory at the 13 yard line – the next drive of the night would be all Ruiz. On first down, Ruiz took the ball to the 39 yard line. Ruiz then broke free down the right side of the field - running the ball down to the Hawks’ one yard on the next play. Ruiz would then cap of the drive with a one yard push into the end zone for the touchdown . The PAT kick was blocked for a 37 – 0 lead with 6:25 left in the

October 19, 2011 third quarter. The Miners drove 87 yards in three plays taking 1:02 on the drive. The Hawks were reeling - looking for some kind of offensive charge. Tanque Verde was pinned back at their own nine yard line on the ensuing kick off. On the third play of the drive, the Hawks’ quarterback David Novak was finally able to drop back for a pass as the Miner defense was in the back field all night. With the pressure from the Miner defense, Novak threw to the intended receiver but was intercepted by safety Phil Adami who stretched out for the ball to complete the turn over. The Miners looked to score once again as they were given the short field at the Hawks’ 37 yard line but returned the favor as Sierra was intercepted at the five yard line and returned to the 22 yard line. The Hawks would get a scoring drive going as they began the drive at their own 22 yard line, putting together a 17 play drive – using up a lot of time on the drive. The Hawks brought the ball down to the Miners’ seven yard line where they faced a fourth and goal-opting to go for the field goal. Novak would line up at the kickers spot and boot a 22 yard field goal to get on the score board at 3 – 37 with 2:41 left in the game. The Miners would take the ensuing kick off and run out the clock to end the game securing the win. The San Manuel offense amassed 469 total offensive yards, 444 yards on the ground and 25 yards in the air. Running backs Jared Gonzalez and John Ruiz had a huge night in

the ground game. Gonzalez totaled 144 yards on just five carries with three touchdowns including an 80 yard touchdown run and Ruiz chalked up 160 yards on nine carries – scoring a touchdown. Running back Vinnie Valdez and quarterback Marcos Sierra also picked up some valuable yards adding to the rushing attack. Valdez totaled 55 yards on five carries – scoring a touchdown and Sierra gained 69 yards on three carries. Also contributing to the running game were running backs Jose Damien who had nine yards on two carries and Daniel Perez who had seven yards on two carries. In the air, Marcos Sierra went 1 for 5 completing a 25 yard pass for a touchdown and throwing an interception. Wide receiver Clark Montano hauled in one pass for 25 yards with a touchdown. The Miners’ defense held the Hawks to only three points on the night with four Miners defenders totaling double digits in the tackle column. Linebacker Daniel Perez muscled up 16 tackles and forced a fumble; defensive end Jonathan Croci grabbed 11 tackles and a quarterback sack; defensive end Anthony Garcia picked up 10 tackles; and lineman Danny Quijada posted 10 tackles. “The guys played a great game from start to finish,” Coach Steve Elmore said. “The seniors wanted to go out with a win for their last regular season home game and they brought everybody together and played lights out.” Elmore continued, “Offensively, the O-line had a great game led by seniors Anthony Salazar, Daniel Renteria, Lance StarkNunez, Rene Ortega, Phil Adami and Jesus Torres. Underclassmen Danny Quijada, Anthony Garcia and Jonathan Croci also helped in making huge holes for the backs to run through and gain a total of 444 yards on the ground. “Defensively, they came to play again with Daniel Perez leading the way from his middle backer spot. From start to finish the defense held their ground with crushing hits on the backs and constant pressure on the quarterback.” The Miners will travel to Oro Valley to take on the Pusch Ridge Lions on Friday night. The Lions post a record of 2 – 5 coming off a 24 – 22 win over Eloy. Kick off is slated for 7 p.m.

Jr. Miners Continued from Page 11 a 14 – 0 lead with 3:34 left on the clock. The Miners drove 94 yards in eight plays taking 4:24 on the drive. The Miners’ defense would continue to shut down Eloy’s offense to take the ball back on downs. San Manuel lined up at the 50 yard line. This time it would only take the

San Manuel Miner, San Manuel, Arizona Miners four plays to hit ‘Pay Dirt’ as Wasko struck again on the reverse play – this time from 28 yards out for the touchdown. Faulstich would convert on the two point play to add to the lead at 22 – 0 with 6:37 left in the fourth quarter. Eloy would take the ensuing drive in for a score after a nice return to the Miners 44 yard line, driving 44 yards in six plays capped off by a three yard run for the touchdown. The two point

Page 13

conversion was good for an 8 – 22 score with 3:21 left in the game. The Miners received the kick off, settling in at their own 43 yard line to run the clock down – taking a couple of knees to end the game and take the win. With the win, the Miners hosted the first round of the playoffs on Tuesday, taking on Hayden. If the Miners win they will play the winner between Pusch Ridge and Eloy. With a Pusch Ridge win, the Miners will play at Pusch Ridge for the Championship. If Eloy wins the Miners will host Eloy for the Championship on Oct. 25.

Accident at Resolution Copper sends man to the hospital By Taylor Beard A Superior man is listed in serious condition Monday after an accident at Resolution Copper’s East site. According to a spokesperson for Resolution Copper, Gilbert Chavez, a contractor working for Resolution Cooper on a crew that’s sinking the #10 shaft at the East Plant, was seriously

injured at approximately noon on Friday. Chavez was working at the bottom of the shaft, 4,853 feet below the surface, when a steel door fell about 50 feet from the galloway above, striking him in the lower back. The door was estimated to weigh between 150 and 200 pounds. No other employees were injured. An investigation

is underway by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, Rio Tinto and Resolution to understand how the door became unhinged and fell. Other employees on site administered First Aid and transported Chavez to the surface where he received additional emergency medical attention from RCM medical responders and the Superior Fire

Department before he was taken by helicopter to Scottsdale Memorial Hospital. All shaft work at the East Plant has been suspended with the exception of water pumping activities pending completion of the investigation. Chavez is employed by Cementation and it is understood that Cementation has been

working closely with the family to assist them in any way they can. Resolution Copper also has offered its assistance with the situation. “Our focus is on Mr. Chavez and his family,” said Jon Cherry, Vice President of Resolution Copper. “He’s a member of the RCM family and our thoughts are with him and his family.”

Life lessons are sometimes messy By Jennifer R. Carnes It’s been quite a journey for our family since the six little Schnauzers arrived in our household. The babies are now eating sloppy messy puppy food and becoming less dependent on their mom (for which she’s extremely grateful). They’re also developing personalities of their own. Lauren, who shares a room with the new little ones, has decided she can do without the noise of babies, thank you very much. “Make them shut up,” she has groaned on more than one early morning when the babies decide

it’s time to get up and EAT! I think this has permanently cured her desire for a brother or sister (for which I’m extremely grateful). We have all enjoyed watching the babies learn how to play with each other. I’m absolutely amazed sometimes to see them playing the same game we see their mom and our other dog playing, the “can I chew on your face” game. The babies also tackle each other the way Penny does our Dachshund. Lauren is currently studying genetics in her seventh grade life science course (great

timing). She has done Punnett Squares using the babies’ parents as subjects. I love that we can turn these experiences into life lessons for her to learn. I’m also a devious mom/teacher – believe

it or not, Lauren’s least favorite thing to do is write (I know, shocking!). I’ve used the birth of the puppies to get two really great essays out of her and am planning on working the puppies a bit more for a

John Clark honored with ‘Spirit of NAU’ award Former Superintendent will be recognized during NAU Homecoming game October 22 John Clark, Vietnam Vet and citizen of Oracle, along with co-winner Dick Nothstein, has worked for years with the university and its representatives to award medals of honor to alumni veterans as well as to implement a new student veteran center on campus. For this work, recognizing and honoring our country’s veterans, he is being honored with the NAUAA Joe and Marie Rolle Spirit of NAU Award, which will be presented to him during halftime at the NAU Homecoming football game, Saturday, Oct. 22, at the Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff. This award, named

after two very industrious and helpful Alumni, was established by the Rolle family to recognize an alumna or alumnus who radiates the same fine spirit of NAU that Joe and Marie Rolle exhibited throughout their careers as students and beyond. The recipients must show their consistent support to the university , in a prominent manner that is ongoing throughout their life. “This is more than an award. Joe and Marie Rolle are the epitome of what service to your university emphasizes. There’s just no finer standard than being recognized in their spirit. I’m very humbled by it,”

said Clark. Crediting Joe and Marie Rolle with the guidance that helped make him who he is now, Clark goes on to say, “When I got out of the Army, Joe Rolle took me under his wing. He gave me a letter that allowed me to get a class schedule and had me report to him, every Friday at 4:30 p.m., for a semester. It started a lifelong interest and friendship. Marie Rolle, working in the guidance center, helped me numerous times, in my career decisions and moves for me and my wife. I just can’t say enough about them.” After graduating from NAU, John spent

his career in Arizona schools as coach, teacher, principal and superintendent and has served on the national Alumni Board of Directors for NAU for six years. Clark’s parents are NAU alumni too. Buck and Marcia Clark met at NAU, just as Clark met his wife, Margery and as his daughter Jaime met her husband Josh. John’s daughter, Kynal, brother Tom and sisterin-law Kim are also NAU alumni. “I’m thrilled to honor John and Dick. They both deserve it for the many things they’ve done for NAU over the years. They’re amazing people,” said Marie Rolle.
