Guest Editorial Correcting the PCCEG ‘Town Hall’ on the Oracle Schools bond issue By Boyd Bosma The Pinal County Citizens for Excellence in Government held a “town meeting” at the Golder Ranch Fire Department Training Center on Monday, Aug. 29. The room was actually scheduled for the monthly meeting of the Eagle Crest homeowners group. This was announced as the first of four such meetings to be sponsored by PCCEG. The purpose of this paper is to provide a response to some of the more egregious statements by two of the PCCEG

leaders. These are actual recorded statements made by Fred MacKenzie, the PCCEG chairman, and by Ted Kennedy, a long-time conservative who runs a blog dedicated to the removal of Barack Obama as President in 2012, followed by my response. Fred MacKenzie: “Over 50% of the budget is for administrative costs. I’m not sure that’s the way it should be.” Response: “Misleading.” The Auditor General’s report actually identifies a

need that resulted from the actions of our reactionary state legislators, not something that schools should be blamed for. Our state has had education cuts virtually every year since 1990, when the Republicans took over the legislature. Since fixed expenses remain mostly the same, there’s less money for instruction. Oracle’s share is about midway for Pinal County school districts, all of which are suffering from the cuts. Another factor is rising gasoline costs, which are far worse than in most

Letter to the Editor: Addressing concerns about the upcoming bond election Editor, San Manuel Miner: This letter will address three concerns regarding the upcoming election for bonds for the Oracle School District: the cost of educating students, the management of district finances, and the costs that will be imposed on local taxpayers. Much of the information that has been distributed to the public by a local political action group is poorly informed, inaccurate or misleading. By way of full disclosure, I am a former member of the Oracle School Board and served as co-chair (along with one other resident from SaddleBrooke) of the Capital Improvement Committee which studied the district’s needs and recommended the list of replacements and upgrades to school property that the bonds are designed to address. None of those needs are frivolous, they address safety concerns, development of facilities to both improve instruction and reduce maintenance costs and needed upgrades to school transportation. Are Oracle’s per pupil

expenses too high? The average national cost per student per year is $10,441. If one excludes the costs of fixed expenses (such things as insurance, utilities and especially transportation) Oracle’s cost is about $6,200 per student. If one includes the total per pupil cost including fixed expenses, the figure is about $8,310. The Oracle district, while small in population, is very large geographically – one of the largest in Arizona. A consequence of this is that transportation costs for bussing students is a large part of the budget, much larger than an urban district such as schools in Phoenix or Tucson. Considered in this light, the district has done a remarkable job of managing funds. Despite claims by local political action groups, budget overrides are not proof that the district is mismanaged. The truth is that almost all districts in Arizona utilize overrides. The legislature provides enough funds for a very, very basic education; if a district wishes to provide such things as after-school

tutoring for students who need more instructional time and such extracurriculars as music and art, overrides are needed to pay for them. Moreover, budget overrides can, by law, be utilized only for instructional costs; they may not be used for capital upgrades. For the past several years, the state legislature has not funded the school facilities board. A result is that many school districts have had to ask voters to approve bonds to pay for necessary repairs and upgrades. Voters in neighboring Amphitheater school district recently approved bonds for this purpose; other school districts are doing the same. Voters in the Oracle Elementary School District currently pay one of the lowest tax rates in Arizona, less than half the school taxes that voters in next-door school district, Amphitheater, pay. Our school taxes are not too high; they are too low. We should do the responsible thing and adequately fund our schools /s/ Mike Carran

past years. Last year, over a fourth of the teachers resigned, preventing forced layoffs but increasing average elementary class size by more than a half, from 19 to 30. They haven’t had a raise

in three years. The figures came from Vince (Venden) Leach, who got his figures from an Auditor General report, which is the only thing you can say about it. The figures are meaningless without

understanding the impact of state actions. It’s another case of blaming the victim and this time trying to penalize children Fred MacKenzie: “Half See Bond, Page 19

Letter to the Editor: Satellite channels still coming from Phoenix Editor, San Manuel Miner: A definitive answer for all the residents of S.E. Pinal County wanting to receive Tucson local TV channels from their satellite TV providers has been given by the FCC. They will not change their present designations corresponding to the Nielsen Designated Marketing Areas. All satellite TV providers must feed all Pinal County

residents Phoenix local channels in accordance with their licensing agreement with the FCC. The remedies they suggested were for “each consumer to contact their own satellite provider and pay for additional satellite services to receive local channels (referred to as distant signals) outside the designated area or subscribe to cable services and negotiate

with the cable provider to receive the preferred local channels” since cable providers do not have to adhere to the same rulings as satellite providers. A third recommendation is to revert to over-the-air antenna reception of local channels in addition to satellite TV coverage. This would possibly require some special equipment from the satellite provider or an electronics store to

blend the two receptions. A fourth suggestion would be to use one of the newer computers that receive TV channels via the internet, then connect the computer to the TV with audio and video cables. Unfortunately, each consumer is going to have to invent their own method of meeting their desired results. Some residents have already found their

own unique method of receiving Tucson channels. They may want to share their findings with their neighbors to save “reinventing the wheel” over and over. Many thanks to those who worked very hard in their communities on the petition drive, which netted over 1600 signatures, in an attempt to get our situation in S.E. Pinal changed. Also, thanks to Senator Jon

Kyl’s office, who obtained information for us and for delivering the petitions to the FCC and Rep. Paul Gosar’s office who interceded with the FCC on our behalf, but to no avail. It has brought many of us together as friends and that may be a blessing in itself. /s/ Marci Heath Chairman Committee to Divide Pinal County

leeches – Penny’s version of “We’re all through playing now!” • Humans isolate

Life lessons are sometimes messy By Jennifer R. Carnes Why is it that humans have such a huge learning curve when it comes to parenting? I’ve been a mother for 12 years now and I still struggle with the concept. It has become more clear to me in the three weeks since out family expanded to include six puppies that still haven’t

got a clue about all the aspects of parenting. Here are a few of my observations: • Humans (at least those of us not considered to be “earth mothers”) have no idea how to breastfeed. We take classes and have visits in the hospital from “lactation experts.” My Schnauzer didn’t need to take classes. She

just automatically knows how to feed her babies. It’s been funny watching her interact with her babies. When they were first born, Penny would head into the whelping

box to feed them. She would stand herself right over the puppy pile and then sit on them. Puppies would ooze out around her sides, finding the nearest teat and

Miners fall to Benson By Frank Smith The San Manuel Miners varsity football team fell to 5 – 1 after a 0-8 loss to the Benson Bobcats last Friday night in Benson. The Miners entered the contest 5 – 0 while the Bobcats came in with a 1 – 4 record, the Bobcat record included some tough losses to some tough teams – their solo win had come against Tanque Verde 53 -21 in the first game of the season. Since then Benson had faced Willcox, Bisbee, Morenci and Arizona Lutheran Academy. The Miners had some what of an easier road facing two teams with no wins and three teams with 1 – 4 records thus hurting the Miners in the AIA Power Point Rankings. Nevertheless, the Miners knew they would have to stay focused as the Bobcats were hosting the Miners for Homecoming and were on the prowl for a win. San Manuel had posted scores of 59, 33, 48, 49, and 27 on their way to a 5 – 0 record, averaging 43 points per game but found it difficult to find the scoreboard in Benson as San Manuel was shut out for the first time this year. In the first quarter, the Miners had two drives – one from their own nine yard line and the other from their own 14. San Manuel punted both possessions away with Punter Josue Alvarez getting plenty of distance on both punts to keep the Bobcats at bay. The Miners defense did their job as they keep Benson from threatening on the three drives the Bobcats sustained – forcing punts on all three. In the second quarter, the See Miners, Page 7

Continued from Page 6 Miners were pinned deep in their own territory at their own five yard line after a good Bobcat punt. San Manuel moved the ball out to the 31 yard line in nine plays to give them some breathing room for the punt. The Bobcats began their drive from the San Manuel 45 yard line after a short punt, the Miners defense went to work as Benson drove the ball down to the Miners eight yard line in five plays to face a third and five to go. On the next play for the Bobcats linebacker Daniel Perez and defensive end met at the quarterback for a sack on the quarterback for a one yard loss. On fourth down and six to go for the Bobcats at the San Manuel nine yard line, Perez blitzed forcing the quarterback to rush the throw for a incomplete pass in the end zone. The Miner would take over on downs at their own nine yard line to move the ball to the 22 yard line – running out the time in the half for a 0 – 0 half time score. In the third quarter, the Miners were forced to punt their second half – opening drive after five plays from their own 35. The Miners defense forced another punt after six plays from the Benson 45 yard line. Clark Montano returned the punt for the Miners catching it on the bounce at the Miner 37 yard line almost breaking free down the side line but was knocked out of bounds at the Benson 48 yard line. The Miners gained some momentum after the return, driving the ball down to the Bobcat 23 yard line in seven plays. Quarterback Marcos Sierra handed the ball off to running back Daniel Perez who fumbled the ball at the Benson 24 yard line – that was as close as the Miners would get to the red zone the rest of the night.

Continued from Page 7 The San Manuel defense forced a three and out for the punt but the Miners returned the favor also going three and out for the punt giving the ball back to the Bobcats for another series of punts for both teams. The only score of the

night came on the ensuing drive for the Bobcats as they drove down field from their own 27 yard line to the Miners 19 yard line in six plays capping off the drive with the Benson quarterback keeping the ball and running it up the middle of the field for the touchdown run. The two point conversion play was good for an 8 – 0 lead

On the kick off, Jared Gonzales returned the kick to the from the 28 yard line to the Benson 46 yard line where on the first play of the drive Sierra fumbled the ball on the quarterback keeper. The Bobcats started out the drive at their own 42 yard line, driving down to the Miners 39 yard line were they were forced to punt after seven plays on the drive. San Manuel got the ball back with 1:26 seconds left in the game; they would begin the drive from their own 21 yard line. The first play was a seven yard pass to wide receiver Clark Montano to bring up a second and three for the first. Sierra keep the ball for a no gain on the next play, the next two plays went incomplete as the Miners gave the ball back to the Bobcats on downs at the San Manuel 27 where Benson would take a knee and the 8 – 0 win.

In the air, Marcos Sierra went 5 - 11 for 34 yards. On the receiving end Andre Sierra had three receptions for 17 yards and Clark Montano had two receptions for 17 yards. Defensively, Daniel Perez had 16 tackles and Fernando Torres had 14 tackles. “The whole team played extremely had for all four quarters. It was a hard fought game that came down to turnovers, and

we lost that battle. There were still a lot of positives to take out of the game, especially defensively,” Coach Steve Elmore said. “I am very proud of how the team fought and never gave up. We need to work that much harder now to keep our season going in the right direction and the entire team knows they have to bring their game up to the next level.” The loss drops the Miners to a #10 power ranking in Division V and a number four ranking in section III. The Miners will travel to Globe on Friday to take on the Tigers at 7 p.m. The Tigers have a 2 – 3 record.

Miner Swimmers swim well at home dual meet and at Speedo Classic Invitational The Miner Swimmers hosted a dual meet on Wednesday, Sept. 28, against Coolidge High School. The Meet was held in the 50 meter direction (Olympic Length) of the San Manuel Pool to satisfy water depth standards at the starting end for High School Swimming. For many swimmers this was the first time competing in an Olympic length course. The boys easily won the meet 87 - 49 by winning nine of the 11 events. Even though Coolidge has some quality swimmers, Miner boys were able to win all three relays, something they were unable to do in the past meet against Coolidge. Two Miner swimmers led the charge by winning both individual events. John Bribiescas continued his winning ways in the distance freestyle events by winning the 200 and 500 Freestyle.

Wayne Newman easily won the 200 Individual Medley (IM) and 100 Breaststroke. Martin Seballos edged out teammate Colten Smith to win the 50 Freestyle. PJ Mortensen led the Miner one-two finish with teammate Jordan Peasley in the 100 Freestyle. The Girls lost the meet 50-105 against a much larger team. Amara Apuron was the only Miner Girl to win an individual race at the meet. Apuron won both the 200 IM and the 100 Backstroke. The Girls 400 Freestyle Relay of Apuron, Austin, Garcia and Sanchez beat the Coolidge team, once again ending the meet on a positive note for the Miners. The coaches of the fledgling Miner Swim team (2010 was the first year for Swimming at San Manuel High School) decided it was time for

swimmers to expand their horizons and attend a large swim meet where

they would compete against the best in the state.

On Saturday, Oct. 1, Miner swimmers participated at the Speedo Classic Invitational held at the University of Arizona Hillenbrand Aquatic Center. During the meet, 978 swimmers from 35 schools competed at one of the best venues in the state for a swim meet and had the opportunity to qualify for the State Championship Meet. Miner swimmers

made the most out of the opportunity to race in a fast pool against formidable opponents and had many personal best swims. Wayne Newman, who has already qualified for state, improved his qualifying times in the 200 IM (2:19.56) and 100 Breaststroke (1:07.41), bettering school records in both.

Conservation initiative proposed for San Pedro By John Hernandez The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is exploring the possibility of forming a collaborative conservation and management initiative in the lower San Pedro River. The area along the San

Pedro River that would be managed extends from Winkelman south to an area approximately 15 miles past Cascabel. A two mile strip on both sides of the river would be in the managed area. A public meeting was

held at the Aravaipa campus of Central Arizona College Thursday, Sept. 22. Many of the ranchers, farmers, and other landowners on the San Pedro River between Winkelman and Redington attended. Local conservationists were in attendance also. They listened to a few speakers talk about the proposed

initiative and were allowed to ask questions and voice their opinions. The majority of ranchers that spoke seemed to be against the idea of the initiative. Andy Smallhouse of the Carlink Ranch received a round of applause when he spoke about government agencies and conservationists putting

more regulations on the rancher, making it harder to do everyday business which takes time away from managing the land. The San Pedro River is the last major free flowing undammed river in the southwest United States. It has major ecological importance as over 300 migratory bird species and 100 nesting species use

the river as their habitat. More than two thirds of the aviary diversity can be seen along the river during the year. It is abundant with animal life including 80 species of mammals and 65 species of amphibians and reptiles. The Fish and Wildlife Service will continue to hold public meetings concerning the initiative.

Copper Town Days set for this weekend By John Hernandez San Manuel was built as a company town for Magma Copper Company in 1953. Mine workers from all over the world came to work in the thriving copper mine, mill and smelter. My family arrived in San Manuel in 1956. Looking back it was a great place to grow up.

It is hard to believe that the smokestacks that were once a landmark are now gone. You could see them from miles away coming down the hill from Oracle or up the hill from Mammoth. They let you know you were getting close to home. The Magma Mine was once the largest

underground copper mine in the world but those days are gone. Mother Magma is no more. We will miss her but not forget what this town meant to the many of us that grew up here or worked at the mine. On Saturday October 8, the Copper Town Association is hosting

the Second Annual Copper Town Days. It is a time for anyone and everyone that ever lived in San Manuel, worked for the companies (Magma and BHP), or was a part of the TriCommunity to come together share their memories and feelings about San Manuel. The public is also invited

to come and meet the people from this small copper town. Copper Town Days will have a car show, youth soccer tournament, vendors, food and drink and live entertainment. Performers include Mariachi Luz, Desert Boyz and Haywire. There will also be

Uptown Fights at San Manuel High School. Events begin at noon but at 8 a.m. there will be a free pancake breakfast with Sheriff Paul Babeu. Sit down and chat with the Sheriff. Copper Town Days should be a great day of fun and getting together with old and new friends.

Got your kicking shoes ready, kids? Soccer Challenge is Saturday age category will receive a Champion certificate and a plaque. Najera stressed that all participants must have a signed parent permission slip, which will be available at the competition. All boys and girls, ages 10 to 14, are invited to compete in the Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge during the Community Schools soccer tournament on Saturday, October 8 at the San Manuel softball/soccer fields, starting at 9 a.m. “The Knights of Columbus sponsor youth and family activities to strengthen our community,” Soccer Challenge chairman Daniel Najera said. “We really appreciate the help and support of Community Schools Director Larry Ramirez,” he added. The Knights of Columbus recently sponsored a Family Swim Night and softball tournament to benefit youth activities, including donations to the little league, according to Najera. All participants at the Soccer Challenge will receive a certificate and the top boy and girl in each

Welcome everyone! Have a great time!

“Boys and girls don’t have to be on a soccer team to be in the Soccer Challenge, but those who are in the soccer tournament this Saturday can come and kick penalty shots between their games,” Najera said.

“Others can come by the tent any time between 9 a.m. and noon to sign up,” he added. A goal is set up with targets worth 5, 10 and 20 points. Players get three practice kicks, followed by 15 penalty

shots from a 12 yard line for the highest score by girls in each age group and boys in each age group. Ties are broken by kicking three times from 15, then 18 and 21 yards, if necessary Najera explained.

Old school, cars and more: Lopez By John Hernandez Lopez Custom, located in the old Ritchfield Gas Station in Dudleyville, has been in business for over 25 years. I Ruben Lopez, owner of Lopez Custom, started out painting bikes as a kid. He then started helping his cousin Art Lopez who did auto body and paint work. He continued to learn and as he got older began working on and restoring

vintage automobiles. He did it as a hobby and got so good at it, he decided to go into business. He also entered his vehicles in car shows and started winning. He entered the shows to meet other car enthusiasts and help solicit business. Along the way he started collecting old toy pedal cars and even restored some of them. In the early 1980s, Ruben went to an

antique show in Pomona, California. While there he saw some old gas station and advertising signs as well as a few old Coca Cola vending machines that he liked. He then began collecting these items as well as other antiques. When you approach Lopez Custom, you will see a bunch of what appears to be old rusted junk car bodies and parts but when you see some of the finished restored cars Ruben has worked on, you realize that what Ruben sees is probably a diamond in the rough. There are lots of antique toys, bicycles, signs and Bryan Plumb adds detail work to a 1950 Pontiac Chieftan. (John Hernandez photo) Most offices are independently owned and operated

other items hanging from the ceiling and walls or tucked away in corners in and outside the shop. There are some vintage coke machines and a Chevron gas pump that once were a part of the history of the ghost town of Sonora. In the upholstery shop he

has a chair made out of the rear end of a 1954 Chevy that was beat up and totally rusted. In the yard there is a huge toy bi-plane that was built at Central Arizona College. The school was going to throw it away when Ruben salvaged it. He plans on painting

Custom is ready to restore it like the Red Baron’s plane and maybe putting Snoopy in the pilot’s seat and hanging the plane as a large sign. At Lopez Custom, Ruben does complete

restoration, custom interiors, custom paint jobs and air brush painting. Ruben says he does “old school” upholstery, tuck and roll, diamond tuck, etc.

A friend of his, Bryan Plumb owner of Coolidge Custom Pin Striping and Murals comes to Dudleyville and does detailed painting on vehicles for Ruben. In the mixing bay of his shop, he has Matrix and Martin-Senour paints and products. He can mix and match any colors. Besides winning numerous car shows, some of the vehicles Ruben has restored or done work on has appeared in magazines along with articles about Ruben such as Low Rider, Motor News and Hemming’s Rods & Performance. In the article and picture in Hemming’s magazine, he did the custom paint job for a 1927 Model T. The vehicle was owned by Jon Smith of Oracle. The oldest vehicle that

1957 Chevy Bel Air Ruben has restored is a 1928 Model A Ford Roadster truck. The truck is owned by Jake Jacobsen, President of See Lopez, Page 14

1938 Buick (diamond in the rough?) was Ruben’s brother Jerry Lopez’s first car. Jerry also restores old vehicles and owns “Miami’s Finest Custom Auto” in Miami, Arizona. In fact working on cars seems to run in the family. Besides learning from his cousin Art, his

cousin’s son teaches auto painting at Central Arizona College in Aravaipa. Ruben’s sister also does upholstery work. In addition to custom auto work, Ruben says he can do metal toy and antique restoration. He can even make you one of those automobile chairs. He will be making a chair out of a 1957 Chevy pickup bed. You can tell Ruben loves working on the old school cars and collecting antiques by the way he talks about them. Ruben said that one of the things he likes about restoring cars is “seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they leave.” Lopez Custom is located at 5558 North Dudleyville Road. You can contact Ruben at (520) 444-8521. And keep an eye out at this weekend’s Copper Town Days Car Show in San Manuel. You might just see one of Ruben’s restorations on display.

Former Superior mayor speaks to San Manuel committee By John Hernandez The former Mayor of Superior and lifelong Arizona resident Roy Chavez spoke at the Village Town Council steering committee meeting held Thursday, Sept. 29, at the San Manuel Fire Station. Chavez spoke about where Superior has been

and where they are now. He talked about how Superior adapted after the Magma Mine shut down and the issues and problems they had while incorporating. He pointed out how San Manuel is going through some of the same things Superior has. “It took a long time for the town to accept that

our destiny was in our hands,” he said, explaining that people held on to the attitude that “when the mine opens again, we will be all right.” Chavez told the audience that they need to put their minds and efforts together to find a solution to sustainability for San Manuel.

He suggested incorporating. “If you incorporate,” he said, “you have more muscle.” He pointed out that the people of San Manuel have three choices. Either incorporate, pursue the Village Town Council idea or do nothing and take the chance that the town

will continue to decline in population. Chavez talked about San Manuel already having a good infrastructure. There are schools, a medical center, empty buildings that can be used for businesses or offices, and a fire department. The people of San Manuel, he suggested,

should look at drawing light industry from Tucson for jobs. “The concept and vision have to come from you,” he said. The next meeting of the steering committee is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the San Manuel High School cafeteria.

Junior High Miners take first loss of the season By Frank Smith The San Manuel Junior High School football team carried an undefeated record of 3 – 0 going into the game against the Pusch Ridge Lions on Sept. 30.The Lions carried an undefeated record also, posting a record of 4 – 0. Someone was going to have to win and someone was going to have to lose… well when all was said and done the Miners took their first loss of the season 6-20 in the hands of the Lions to drop to 3 – 1. The Lions took the ball in for a touchdown in their opening drive with an 11 yard pass into the end zone. The two point conversion play was stopped by Armando Lopez for the Miners, to hold the Lions to a 6 – 0 lead with 1:52 left in the first quarter. The Lions drove 70 yards in eight plays taking nearly the entire first quarter on possession time with 6:01 on the drive. The Lions were not done scoring as they scored again on their next possession after a Miner punt. The Lions lined up at their own 36 yard line and tossed a swing pass to a Lion receiver Aaron Tvrdy for a 64 yard catch and run for the touchdown on the first play of the drive. The two point conversion was good for 14 – 0 lead with 7:28 in the second quarter. San Manuel began the drive at their own 40 yard line but fumbled the ball on the pitch

five plays later giving the ball back to Pusch Ridge at the Miners 45 yard line. The Lions would score once more before the half. Pusch Ridge drove down to the San Manuel 11 yard line in four plays-capping off the drive with an 11 yard pass into the end zone. The two point conversion play was stopped by Isidro Wasko for a 0-20 Lions lead with 1:29 left in the half. On the ensuing kick off, the Miners seemed to find a groove as quarterback Frank Renteria aired out a pass to wide receiver Isidro Wasko down to the Lions 40 yard line for the first down. Renteria then dropped back and hit tight end Kyle Yonkin for a gain of 10 yards to the 30 yard line. Renteria then hit running back Stephen Faulstitch with a swing pass for a four yard pick up. The Miners were now at the Lions 26 yard line but were running out of time. Renteria dropped back again throwing a pass down field that was intercepted at the eight yard line. The Lions took the ball and a knee to run out the first half going into the locker room with a 0-20 lead. In the second half, the Miners defense began to impose their will on the Lions offense and held them scoreless – forcing a fumble late in the fourth quarter that would lead to the Miners only score of the night. The Miners lined up at the

Pusch Ridge 49 yard line with 4:50 left on the clock. Faulstitch got the first call picking up four yards on the carry. The Miners were called for a motion penalty moving the ball back five yards. Faulstitch got the call again picking up nine yards for a three and three to go. Faulstitch then picked up three yards and the first down. On first on 10, Renteria’s pass went incomplete. Wasko picked up eight yards on the next play on the end around placing the ball at the Lions 31 yard line. On the next play of the drive, Renteria unleashed a pass to wide receiver Armano Lopez down to the Lions four yard line. With the Miners lined up at the four yard line, Faulstitch got the ball for a no gain as the Lions were ready for him. On second down and goal, Lopez lined up at the full back position and took the quick hand off from Renteria for the four yard touchdown run. The two point conversion by Faulstitch was stopped for a 6 – 20 score with :52 left in the game. The Miners went for the onside kick but the Lions recovered the ball and took a knee to run out the game clock – taking the victory 6-20. The Miners headed up the hill to Oracle to take on the Mountain Vista Cougars on Tuesday and will return home on Oct. 11 to host Eloy with a 6 p.m. kick-off.

Lions Quail Hunter’s Breakfast a tasty treat shared by few The Lions Club Quail Hunter’s Breakfast did not do as well as hoped in raising funds for the community. “We had a poor turnout for breakfast this year; barely broke even! I hope!” said Lion Donnie Wright. “We only prepared 156 breakfasts and 80 bowls of Menudo!” he continued. Poor turn outs for such events mean bad news for the Tri-Community, especially as we near the holidays, when many families who are struggling financially look forward to receiving a Thanksgiving and/or Christmas basket, that means the difference between having enough for the month and sharing a little joy with the family, or going to bed hungry on the days when most are feasting. Your local Lions and volunteers are working toward helping such families make it through the holidays

and having a little something to share with their children, but, while they can put in the hard work of gathering the food, setting up tables and making the breakfasts, they can’t afford to pay for all those baskets on their own. Next time you pick up a newspaper, please check for local Lions events, as attending them is a great way to have fun while helping others; and, like with the Quail Hunter’s Breakfast, there are usually prizes to win. This time around, the grand prize was $200, won by Rick Guitard; in addition a cash prize of $100 was won by Monica Hughy; Larry Ramirez won a haircut from Linda’s Barber Shop; a $45 gift certificate for Dr. John Huntington was won by Henry Vargas Jr. There were also many fine prizes from local restaurants. Larry Sanchez won dinner

for two from La Casita; a $10 gift certificate from the very tasty Las Michoacanas Restaurant in Mammoth was won by Oracle resident, Erica Nelson and another was won by Dudi Castillo from San Manuel; dinner for two from Casa Rivera were won by Monica Hughy; and both Larry Ramirez and Robert Castillo won gift certificates from Romo’s Restaurant. “Congratulations to all winners and those that help support the San Manuel-Oracle Lions. Thanks to the volunteers Pat Carmarena,Bernadette Carmarena, Kimberly Wright, Dee Reidhead, Louie Chavez, Jessie Starks and Chelsea Starks and the Leos & Lions.” says Donnie Wright. To discover what new events the San ManuelOracle Lions are planning, contact your local Lions Club or keep an eye on the news.

Continued from Page 3 million dollar parking lot…. costs not justified. They’re not directly related to children’s education.” Response: “Misleading.” MacKenzie knows that the purpose of the bond issue is to deal with the capital needs of the schools. Having decent educational facilities has long been shown to be a factor in educational achievement. Fixing the parking lot is only one of a long list of overdue repairs. Fred MacKenzie: “I would be coming in with requests for computers, and for things that directly relate to the education of the children. These don’t seem to meet that profile.” Response: “Misleading.” MacKenzie is trying to change the issue again. I’d focus on educational improvement also, but under current state law the district has done all it legally can. Capital improvement issues have been around for years, though, and it’s past time to take care of those. Fred MacKenzie: “The business manager said…. repairs could be covered from the Maintenance and Operation (M & O) Budget even if the bond sale did not pass. So my response would be let’s energize the maintenance program and start using the M & O budget. If we can’t make it happen then, come back and see us.”

Taken from a fenced backyard were a lawn mower, garden and construction equipment, tools, lawn blower, weed eater, chainsaw, hammer drill, cordless drill, battery charger and more. Sept. 23 An unattended death was reported in the 600 block of South San Carlos Street, San Manuel. Sept. 23 Emma V. Robles, 38, Oracle, was arrested in the 1700 block

Sept. 23 A female juvenile, 12, Oracle, was cited and released on charges of truancy. Sept. 24 Criminal damage was reported in the 8000 block of South Yellow Jacket Drive, Mammoth.

Response: “Misleading and untrue.” Both normal maintenance and instructional expenses come from the M & O budget, which includes maintenance staff salaries, cost of buses, and normal repairs to buildings. It does not cover capital improvement or even preventive maintenance, both of which were covered by the State Facilities Board until the Republicans in the legislature cut the SFB budget three years ago. The district has already been using the M & O budget for maintenance, which cuts the amount available for instruction. It’s time to bring the buildings up to date. Fred MacKenzie: “Can anybody tell me what would the enrollment be in five years….Why are we building all these new structures? What’s going to happen if we have all these bright new buildings and not enough students to fill them?” Response: “Misleading.” After substantial losses resulting from the closing of the copper mine in San Manuel in the early 2000s, enrollment has increased by an average of three to five percent per year since, and is projected to remain in the same range for the next decade. New home building in Oracle has continued to expand and will do so in the foreseeable future. MacKenzie is trying raise an irrelevant straw man. Fred MacKenzie: “I didn’t

mean to slant this.” Response: “Ludicrous.” The entire presentation, and all of PCCEG’s activities since May, have been designed to stir public resentment against public schools and against taxes. You can read their own comments on the PCCEG and SaddleBrooke Republican Club websites and judge how nonpartisan and objective they really are.

Continued from Page 5 themselves at home with their brand new babies and then wonder why they have such bad cases of post partum depression. With the Schnauzer, not so much. True, she did spend the first day or two worrying over her brood, protecting them from perceived threats from her sister Dachshund. But since then she lets us know when she’s had enough. A bark from the “baby’s room” lets us know that she wants out. She heads outside for what we refer to as “adult conversation.” Sometimes it’s just going outside and barking


Continued from Page 9 set a new school record in the 50 Freestyle of 29.34 breaking her old record by 0.06 seconds. Amara Apuron had an outstanding swim in the 100 Backstroke, finishing in 1:16.98 and breaking her own school record (1:19.90). The boys 200 Freestyle Relay team of Wayne Newman, Martin Seballos, Colten Smith, and PJ Mortensen set a new school record of 1:44.49 breaking the old record by three seconds. The girls 200 Freestyle Relay team of Amara Apuron, Nicole PrimeroPredgo, Jazelle Sanchez and Cierra Austin also set a new school record of 2:03.12.

Penny, it seems to me, cares only that the babies are fed and cleaned on a regular basis. She makes sure they are safe and not being handled too much. It’s been fun sharing the first couple of weeks of these new living creatures’ lives. I can’t wait to see what comes next. size. Both the Boys and Girls 200 Freestyle Relay teams were within a second of the Provisional State Qualifying times. The way it stands now Wayne Newman will be the only Miner Swimmer headed to the State Championship Meet. However, Coach Alex Gort was quick to point out that the Miners still have at least one more qualifying meet and, as of Friday, only nine teams have hit the provisional qualifying standard for the Boys 200 Free Relay and only 16 teams have achieved the standard for the Girls 200 Free Relay. Since 24 relay teams will qualify, Miner swimmers have a realistic chance of qualifying in both races. Miner swimmers will travel to Florence on Thursday for their next meet.
