Congressional candidates differ on Resolution land exchange By Chase Kamp Copper Area News Superior-based Resolution Copper has placed its hopes in a federal land exchange bill that would allow mining operations begin on copper-rich federal lands. There have been ten different permutations of the bill in the last six years. The current Congressional candidates representing the region have differing opinions on the current bill, which is awaiting review from the Senate. The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act, or H.R. 1904, was introduced by then District 4 Representative Paul Gosar. The bill is an agreement between the federal government and Resolution Copper that would facilitate the company’s mining efforts just outside the town of Superior in the former Magma copper mine. In Oct. 2011, the U.S. House passed the measure mostly along party lines. The bill states that Resolution Copper will receive 2,422 acres of the Oak Flat federal land parcel in Pinal County. The

federal government will receive 5,344 acres of land from eight various parcels around Arizona, notably those in the Lower San Pedro River and Apache Leap South areas of Pinal County. A provision in the bill requires the government to consult with the Yavapai and Apache Indian tribes regarding a management plan for Apache Leap, but the exchange can go forward before consultations with tribes begin. According to Resolution Copper, the copper mine project is expected to create over 3,700 direct and indirect jobs at the mine site. The company has invested more than $750 million in the process since beginning work on the exchange in 2005. Opponents of the bill, such as Representative Raul Grijalva (D-Tucson), argued the job figures were overblown and sought more environmental oversight. Current CD-1 Democratic candidate Ann Kirkpatrick introduced a bill of her own two years ago that included provisions sought by Senate

Democrats. “Mr. Gosar’s legislation differs from mine by eliminating the NEPA environmental impact study and governmentto-government tribal consultations prior to the land exchange,” Kirkpatrick said in a statement. Like Democratic amendments to the Gosar bill, it did not pass the House. Her Republican opponent, Jonathan Paton, has come out in support of the Gosar bill, according to campaign representative Barrett Marson. “Paton supports Rep. Gosar’s efforts to push that through,” he said. “Jobs is the number one issue in this election.” Marson said Paton would introduce a new bill if Gosar does not win reelection against Democratic challenger Mikel Weisser this Nov. “If Gosar is not re-elected, then he will pick up the mantle and run with it,” he said. Republican Senate candidate Jeff Flake cosigned the legislation when he was a member of the House and has toured the Resolution facilities. Democratic Senate candidate Richard Carmona’s campaign did not respond to queries regarding his stance on the land exchange by press time. Flake’s opponent and the former U.S. Surgeon General has not made public statements regarding the project. However, groups affiliated with the Democratic Party have criticized Flake for his past work as a mining lobbyist.

Letter to the Editor: Nasty robo-calls a no go We have been receiving some fairly nasty robo calls from a Alicia Bristow running against Pete Rios for Supervisor. Most area voters have known Pete Rios for over 3 decades as a good public servant, so we hang-up on these very

negative phone calls. Some of her other phone calls make reference to the Oracle Fire District where she accuses Pete of not listening to area residents on the size of a new fire board. The Pinal County Board of Supervisors vot-

ed to create a 3 member board, since no one from the community testified at their September meeting. Later Alicia Bristow claimed that the Oracle community had wanted 5 members and had passed a resolution, that she or the

fire dept. apparently failed to turn in. The Board of Supervisors never had a copy of the resolution, but later met again and went to 5 members. Alicia’s husband is one of seven candidates run-

ning for the Oracle Fire Board. Could it be she raised such a big stink over this, just to give her husband a greater chance to get elected? Alicia Bristow does not appear to be an honest and truthful person. She is

participating in the area’s most dirty campaigning and is trying to force her husband’s election on the fire board. We know Pete Rios and what we know of Alicia is not good. /s/Angie Huerta Mammoth, AZ

Letter to the Editor: John Fillmore supports Joe Ortiz, TJ Shope Early ballots are out And, I wanted to give a very strong statement of support for two excellent people for the State Legislature and Pinal County. Joe Ortiz, an excellent leader, motivator, and someone whom shall make Pinal proud is the clear choice for State Senate. I have known Joe for years and he has always given his best, listened to others and been strong in his convictions. Joe will make an excellent State Senator. TJ Shope will be a true asset for Pinal County as State Representative and I encourage all to “single Shot” TJ. This is where a voter although may vote for two for this office, instead votes

for just one. It doubles the vote potential and TJ is worth it. Frank Pratt, while a nice guy has been a pathetic legislator. He is happy just to be elected and a “good guy.” Frank was rated a friend of big government from the Americans for prosperity and has a lackluster rating from most Republican groups. Meanwhile, leadership is what TJ Shope is all about, He has shown maturity and dedication in everything that he has taken on and is an excellent person to take my place. I ask all that have supported me to “single shot” TJ shope, and let Pratt”s name identification carry him for the number two spot and insure that Pinal County’s LD 8 has at least one leader in the

her for her work. Because her job is an elected position anyone can challenge her and run for the position. In this election her opposition is a young, inexperienced kindergarten teacher. This person cannot come close to the experience, knowledge and educational background of Ms Roberts. Roberts

has used her expertise and knowledge to secure many federal grants bringing millions of federal dollars to Pinal County to enhance our schools to the benefit of our children. Interestingly her opponent has said she would not secure any federal grants because “she doesn’t believe in

it.” Apparently she is willing to sacrifice our children’s future to satisfy her personal radical political ideology. Pinal County’s children need Superintendent Orlenda Roberts. They should not be a pawn to further someone’s radical right wing agenda. /s/ Joe Robison, Retired Saddlebrooke

Pastor’s Corner – Believing God is Good Checkmates My Bitterness By Joe Palmer Pastor, Fellowship Baptist Church Bitterness is a condition brought on by a perception that another person has hurt us or blocked us (or someone we love) from having what is rightfully ours. I know what bitterness is, and so do you. Perhaps you’re bitter about something right now. Perhaps there is a person you would like to see humbled and apologetic about what they have said or done. If this is the case, give it up! The fact is that someone has something to be bitter with you about. Not one of us is free from having hurt someone else. And in this realization is the seed thought for escaping the miserable condition of being bitter. God tells us to be “kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has

forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:32) Understanding that God is good and willing to forgive us of our sins because of Jesus Christ, gives us the logic for forgiving any other human being on the planet for whatever they have done. A person forgiven by God has been forgiven things far worse than that person you are bitter with. If you have been forgiven through Jesus Christ, you have been forgiven far worse things. If you believe that God is good, that He loves you, that He has made it possible to be forgiven and have eternal life, and if you have this wonderful gift free of charge, then be free! Be free! Be free of your bitterness! If you would like to talk with me (Pastor Joe Palmer of Fellowship Baptist) about it, e-mail me at joeandsuzypal@

Art and Wine Auction featured artist Joy Weddle on the go at 80 At almost 80 years of age, Joy Weddle is currently building a rock wall in her back yard and refinishing her kitchen cabinets. “My life just seemed to have provided the ideal

settings to inspire me, but mostly I have just always created things for the joy of it, not struggling to become anything,” she said. Joy’s early artistic story

begins on a ranch in the Arizona desert near what is now Peoria. “Our Daddy taught us to draw,” she said. “We would sit around our big oak table, each with a stack of typing paper and draw for hours.” At the age of eight, Joy’s father moved the family to Horse Mesa Dam, “When I wasn’t swimming or climbing, I was drawing and painting pictures of the mountains,” she recalled. After high school graduation, Weddle took a correspondence course in oil painting in 1958. “People began wanting to buy my paintings,” she said. Her father moved the family to the San Carlos Reservation where he took a job at the Coolidge Dam.

“I began drawing and painting the Apache children and the Crown Dancers; I took a class from the Indian school in clay and ceramics and began sculpting,” she said. A few years later, Weddle began her work in bronze. “You could do more detail and make editions and still have one to keep,” she reasoned. “Because of the expense, my husband and I learned to do most of the work ourselves.” Her husband did all the casting, helped with sandblasting and made all the bases for her bronze sculptures. Over the years, Weddle has received numerous awards for her works of art and sold pieces through the El Prado Gallery -

Tlaquepaque, in Sedona. Weddle has worked with many mediums including ink, watercolors, oils, clay, stone and bronze. Today, Weddle creates many pieces in paper clay. Her sculpture, “Dragon on Manzanita,” will be for auction along with many other beautiful pieces created by many local talented artists at the Gila County Fairgrounds, Nov.3 at 5 p.m. The CVRMC Foundation raises funds in support of Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center to purchase

equipment and technology specifically for patient care and staff training which strengthens the healthcare services in the community. A silent and live auction will be held along with several wine tasting stations, a beer garden, photos by Come Alive Photography, and a fun carnival atmosphere!. Tickets are now on sale for $10 or $12 at the door. For more information or to donate an auction item contact Dianna Jernigan at (928) 402-1197 or Jessica Morgan at (928) 402-1230.

Georgie Digs ... By Georgie Wood Because I have often been asked how I got involved in writing my short “Georgie Digs” articles, I will try to explain how and why in this article. To begin with, I had done lots of research into family history and history of Aravaipa Creek where I had lived most of my life, and I had obtained lots of stories from my husband Clifford Wood who had become a rancher in the Aravaipa country after having arrived there as a young boy. Consequently, in 1995 I started my manuscript “A Creekside Story” of which I am working on its last rendition - hopefully, its last! When Rita Hazzard was the Editor of the Copper Country News, the weekly newspaper out of Globe that is still distributed to numerous areas, and after Ted Lake, who was then a reporter for that paper, had written an article in June of 2009 about Crystal Cave that was located southeast of Winkelman, I let Ted Lake know what my husband Cliff had remembered about Cliff’s exploration of Crystal Cave in the 1930’s. Although Ted Lake and I had corresponded, I never had the pleasure of meeting the one who arranged for the Copper Country News to publish a few of my stories about when my husband’s Wood family had lived circa 1919 at El Capitan on the east side of the Pinal Mountains in Gila County before finally settling along Aravaipa Creek. Ted Lake has been a Staff Writer for Globe’s weekly Arizona Silver Belt newspaper for quite a while. The “Georgie Digs” title of my articles came about from a caricature of me that I had obtained during a visit to Disneyland or Knotts Berry Farm in California. I don’t remember which, but I must have told the artist who had drawn the caricature that I liked to do something with rocks, because the caricature portrayed me using a trowel

on top of a pile of rocks. I have made some pretty good rock walls - when I was younger! To a person with a crazy imagination like I have, it could portray Georgie “digging up” information (or dirt?) for my short articles. Since May 5, 2010, Editor in Chief Jennifer Carnes has published my articles in the weekly Copper Basin News whose Publisher is James Carnes and General Manager is Michael Carnes. It is just one of the publications the Carnes family has, and a very interesting story written by Rosalind Padilla was published on January 6, 2010 , and it was about the Carnes and their long-time family history in the publishing business. Besides buying the newspaper, I am a subscriber to their website (CopperArea. com) for the modest monthly cost of $2.00, which is a good way for people to stay in touch with what is going on in what is referred to as the Copper Corridor which starts at Superior and proceeds south through Kearny, Hayden, Winkelman, Dudleyville, Aravaipa, Mammoth, San Manuel, Oracle, and ends at Oracle Junction. There is lots of history in each of those areas, and I really wish that the other “old timers” who are still with us will come forward with stories of what they remember. Did you notice I said “other old timers”? There is a saying I can relate to - in every old person there is a younger person wanting to know what happened.

The Blazers traveled to East Tucson to play the Tanque Verde first place team, Inferno. The Blazers started strong scoring three runs in the first inning only to be matched by the Inferno scoring three runs in their first at bat. The Blazers defense tightened up for the next two innings only allowing one run to the Inferno, while the Inferno defense also allowed only one run. Heading into the fourth inning with the score tied 4-4 and time running out the Blazers scored three runs, bringing the score to 7-4. With the bottom of the Inferno lineup coming up at their last bat, the Blazers should have wrapped up the game. Instead a lack of determination to put the game away along with three errors and a walked batter allowed their cleanup batter to come around to her turn and hit an in the park homerun for three runs and squeeze by with an 8-7 victory. On the mound Daniella Hinojos (3K/3W/4ER) for three innings and Brianna Galarza (0K/3W/1 ER) relieving for one inning. Offensively the Blazers were led by Samantha Bajarga (2-2, double), Daniella Hinojos (2-3, double), Brianna Galarza (2-3), Emma Alvarado (23), Julie Meza (1-2), and Deseray Godoy (1-2). After a 15-minute break to shake off that tough loss, the Blazers were at it again. The Inferno came up to bat first scoring two runs,

starting right where they left off from the last game. The Blazers scored none. Holding the Inferno to no runs in the second, needing a spark, the Blazers went back to small ball and with some fantastic base running the Blazers scored four runs in the inning. Inferno came back and scored two runs in the third inning tying up the game 4-4. In the Blazers third at bat, two back-to-back doubles sparked a four-run third inning allowing the Blazers to pull out to an 8-4 lead. With time running out, the Inferno had one last at bat. Bringing up the bottom of their lineup and what should have been a quick inning, once again turned into a nail biting inning. One walked batter, one dropped ball, one fielding error and two throwing errors allowed Inferno to creep back into the game 8-7 and bring back the top of their lineup with one out. After one quick timeout and team refocusing discussion, the Blazers pitcher struck out two of the final three batters to hold on for a win 8-7. On the offensive side the Blazers were led by Brianna Galarza (1-2, double), Daniella Hinojos (1-2, double), Julie Meza (1-2) and Samantha Bajarga (1-2). On the mound starting and closing Daniella Hinojos (3K/1W/3ER), and Brianna Galarza (4K/0W/1ER) relieving for two innings.

Lady Lobos earn a trip to state volleyball tournament By N. Waddell Since the last article on the Lady Lobo volleyball team, the Lobos earned a trip to the state playoffs winning six of their last seven matches to end the regular season with a thirteen win and four-loss record. The Lady Lobos went on a no loss streak winning five of their last seven matches in three sets. The Lobos defeated the San Carlos Lady Braves with scores of 25 to 18, 25 to 16 and 25 to 20. The Lady Lobos next match was a trip to Coolidge to take on the Lady Eagles of Imagine Prep and they again came away with a three set win defeating the Lady Eagles with scores of 25 to 9, 25 to

9 and 25 to 10. The Lady Lobos winning streak continued when they traveled to Superior on Oct. 9 for the make-up of the Sept. 5 postponed match. The sets were a little bit tougher for the Lady Lobos but they came through with great serving, court movement and talking to take the match against the Lady Panthers with scores of 27 to 25, 25 to 18 and 25 to 20. The Lady Eagles of Imagine Prep made the return match at Hayden with the results about the same as in the first match between the Lobos and Eagles. The scores were a little bit better for the Lady Eagles but they were still a bit in the lopsided side losing in three sets with

scores of 25 to 13, 25 to 12 and 25 to 13. The Lady Lobos lost the only match during the seven game stretch when the Lady Miners of San Manuel came to Hayden Gym for an exciting five set match. The Lady Miners broke out to a two set to none score with scores of 26 to 28 and 19 to 25. However, the Lady Lobos came back playing strong on the net and landing their serves to take the next two sets and even the match at two sets apiece with scores of 25 to 23 and 25 to 20 to set up the exciting fifth set. The Lady Miners broke out to a 0 to 3 score on penalty points before the Lobos could break their serve and take a 4 to 3 lead. The Miners could not take advantage of the service break returning the serve to Hayden and they raised the score to 7 to 4. The serve went back and forth with Hayden holding an 11 to 8 lead after four players for each team had gone to the service line. It would be as close as the score would get as the next Miner server went to the line and hit for five services points to take a 12 to 14

lead after five servers had gone to the line and finally won, 12 to 15, on the service break when Hayden could not land their serve. San Manuel handed the Lobos their fourth loss of the season and the second one at the hands of the Lady Miners. The Lady Lobos were on the winning side on their next match when the Lady Panthers of Superior came to Hayden for the return match of the season. The second match against the Lady Panthers was just as tough as the first but the results were the same with the Lobos taking the match in three sets with scores of 25 to 23, 25 to 19 and 25 to 19. The last scheduled match of the season was a trip to Globe to take on the Lady Tigers. The Lady Tigers played better the second meeting between the teams but the results were almost the same as the Lobos took the match in four sets. The Lobos took the first two sets with scores of 25 to 20 and 25 to 17. The Lady Tigers came on strong in the third set wining 22 to 25. The Tiger’s celebration must have tired them out

because they could not do anything with the Lobos hard serves from Danielle Paton, Lainey Lopez and Devin Estrada as they combined for 17 service points to hand the Lady Tigers a 25 to 6 loss in the fourth set to win the match. The Lady Lobo JV also had a good run winning four of five matches to end the season with an 11-win and 4-loss record. The Lobo JV lost a tough match to the San Carlos JV with scores of 23 to 25, 25 to 15 and 14 to 16. It would be the last loss they would have winning their next four matches. The Lobo JV defeated the Superior Lady Panther JV in two sets with scores of 26 to 24 and 25 to 17. The San Manuel Miner JV was next and the Hayden Lobo JV took care of business in three sets winning the match with scores of 20 to 25, 25 to 18 and 15 to 11. The Superior Panther JV were on the schedule again and the results were the same but the action was much better with the Lobo JV winning a first set marathon with a 31 to 29 score and cruised to the two set win with a 25 to 15

score. The final match of the season was another two set win when the Lobos traveled to Globe for the return match, winning with scores of 25 to 17 and 25 to 16. The Lady Lobo varsity earned the trip to the state play-offs with their eleventh place finish in the power point standings. The Lady Lobos will travel to Prescott Valley to play the number six seed Lady Wildkats of Duncan High School on Fri. morning Nov. 2. A win will send them to a second round game later in the day on Fri. It was a great showing by the Lady Lobos during the season. The best of luck in the Arizona State Volleyball Tournament play tough and to the best of your abilities and good results will come to the team. Again, the best of luck to the Hayden High School Lady Lobo volleyball team.

Panthers edge Junior Cats in championship game

See more photos from the Championship Game online at or by scanning the code with your smartphone. (Photos by Valerie Garcia) By Richard Bravo The Ray Junior High Bearcats traveled to Superior last Tues. to take on the Panthers in the Central League Championship Game. It was a highly anticipated rematch for the Junior Cats as they were trying to avenge their first loss of the season from the Panthers. The Panthers came into the game undefeated and were the number one seed in the central division, allowing them to have home field advantage. This may have helped them stay perfect as they edged the Junior Cats 14-8. After a scoreless first quarter, Ray got on the scoreboard first with just over six minutes left in the second on a 19-yard touchdown run by Paul Michael Wormwood. The two-point conversion pass from quarterback Cole Yocum to receiver Jordan Pace gave the Junior Cats lead 8-0. The Junior Cats lead would be cut down to two points as the Panthers scored on their next possession on a 43-yard touchdown run on a quarterback keeper.

The two-point conversion failed leaving the Junior Cats with an 8-6 lead with 5:10 remaining in the first half. After a turnover on downs on the Cats, next possession the Panthers took over at their own 42yard line with just under two minuets remaining in the half. Facing a third down and long the Panthers caught the Junior Cats off guard throwing a 42-yard halfback pass for a touchdown with 28 seconds left in the first half. The two point conversion was good to give the Panthers a 14-8 halftime lead. The second half of play was a defensive battle with both teams playing tremendously. Both the Junior Cats and Panthers struggled offensively moving the ball in the second half. At the end of the third quarter the Junior Cats still found themselves trailing 14-8. The final quarter of play, the Junior Cats found some openings in the Panther defense as they put a drive together taking the ball to the Panther six-yard line setting up a first and goal. Hoping to take the lead

or tie the game the Junior Cats could not finish the drive and were stopped on all four attempts, turning the ball over on downs. Tanner Willis gave the Junior Cats one last chance to score as he came up with an incredible interception with just under two minutes left in the game. With the ball spotted at

the 27-yard line the Junior Cats needed to go 73 yards for the score. However, the tough Panthers defense kept them form marching down for a game winning drive forcing a turnover on downs and securing a victory. The Junior Cats were led offensively by running back Wormwood who had

another big game carrying the ball 17 times for 126 yards and one touchdown, Pace had eight carries for 55 yards and Bobby Mesa had 25 yards on five carries. Defensively the Junior Cats were led by Yocum who had with seven tackles and three assists, Wormwood and Anthony

Acuna had four tackles each, and Jonah Cude and Nathan Molar had two each. This team went from not finishing a season a year ago to the central league runners-up a year later. Congratulations to the players and coaches and thank you for an exciting season.

The top two teams in the region and top three individuals in their events qualify to compete in the College National Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming. The CAC Rodeo Team has made it to the Nationals 42 consecutive years. The Men’s and Women’s Team is currently in fourth place in the Grand Canyon Region. Head Rodeo Coach Joe Moody, Skyla Teel, Professor of Reading and a “Cow Girl” and the members of the team were on hand to answer questions about rodeo and the team. The team competes in bareback riding, tie down roping, break away roping (girls), saddle bronco riding, goat tying (girls), steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing (girls), and bull riding. Rodeo is an expensive sport as each member of the team must have a horse which they must feed and take care of. They also have to pay their own entry fees to rodeos. The individual competitors can win money at each rodeo. The CAC Rodeo Team will be hosting a rodeo on March 3-4 2013 at the Johnny Whitlow Rodeo Arena in Florence Arizona. Come down and watch a great bunch of athletes

compete.

Florence Copper Project moves forward By Zach Richter Copper Area News Despite local opposition and the best efforts of the group Protect Our Water our Future, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) granted Curis Resource the Aquifer Protection Permit [APP] required for the company to move forward with Phase 1 of the in-situ copper mine the Florence Copper Project on Sept. 28, 2012. “The receipt of our Phase 1 operating permit from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is a key milestone for the company as we look forward to the start of construction and development of the Florence Copper Project,” said Michael McPhie, Curis President and CEO

in a press release regarding the permit. The Southeast Valley Ledger spoke with Rita Maguire, Senior Legal and Government Affairs Advisor to Curis Resources about what the permitting means for the project and a tentative start date for Phase 1. She explained that the ADEQ permit has been issued though there is a public comment period before it is finalized. “This permit is a critical milestone, next the ADEQ will begin its formal comment and hearing process where they will take public comment and then issue the final permit,” Maguire said. “The ADEQ won’t issue the permit at all unless we meet all of their requirements; they believe

the [in-situ] process is safe.” Maguire went on to note that the dates of the public comment meetings will be announced by the end of Oct., “The second part of the permitting process is the EPA’s underground injection permit,” she continued. “It’s been in process form many months…we’re hopeful the permit will be issued by the end of the year.” Assuming everything goes according to plan, Maguire believes the Florence Copper Project will be up and running in its testing phase in the spring of 2013. “Things are really moving forward, we’re actively remodeling offices and Curis is hiring new people and moving

forward with vendors and contractors,” she said. “What the ADEQ has done is grant a temporary [APP] for two years on a small scale…all the data will go to the ADEQ and the EPA demonstrating this process can operate exactly as we expect.” While Curis and the ADEQ are confidant in-situ mining is safe, the organization known

as Protect Our Water our Future is confidant they know better. The Southeast Valley Ledger reached out to the group and received a statement from group spokesperson Justin Merritt. “We knew the APP permit was going to be issued, that is why we filed the complaint along with Pulte Homes and Johnson Utilities, over

a week ago,” he wrote. “In our opinion foreign owned Curis Resources is requesting a temporary permit for long term commercial use, which is totally inappropriate.” “This is an end-run around the will of the residents of Florence who have repeatedly expressed that they don’t want a mine located in Curis, Page 20
