Letter to the Editor: Talkin’ trash Editor, Superior Sun: Thanks for the trash, Superior! What a great turnout we had for the Annual Fall Dump Day! Truckload after truckload came bearing gifts of old furniture, mattresses, bicycles, tables, chairs, tires, yard waste and general trash. In just five hours we disposed of approximately 30,000 pounds of trash, a trailer full of metal, a roll-off full of tires and piles of yard

clippings. We couldn’t have done this without the joint effort of Orion Recycling, Resolution Copper, BHP, the Town of Superior and the volunteers and residents of Superior. A very special thanks to the Public Works employees who volunteered, along with their families and the Gila County inmates, and unloaded trash from trucks and trailers, tossed and smashed it into roll-offs

until they were full to the brim. Keep up the great work, Superior! We’re looking

cleaner! /s/ Sue Anderson, for the Let’s Talk Trash Committee

Valenzuela wins recall election, unofficially By Taylor Beard Jayme Valenzuela has been declared the unofficial winner of last week’s recall election. Michael Hing received 325 votes and Valenzuela received 353. Five write-in votes were cast. Now what happens? Technically, Mayor Hing is still in power at the beginning of Thursday’s town council meeting. If he so chooses, he will open the meeting and conduct it through the consent agenda and communication, at which point the council will canvas the votes and either accept them officially or not. If Hing is not present, the meeting

will be opened and conducted by Vice Mayor Olga Lopez. If the election results are accepted, Valenzuela will be sworn in as the new mayor and will oversee the rest of the meeting through the agenda items and be in power from that point on. The election was administered by the Pinal County Elections Office for the Town of Superior. The results are unofficial until the Superior Town Council canvasses the votes. Once accepted,Valenzuela will win the recall election officially and be the new mayor of Superior.

Parks and Recreation offers fun for Superior Kids By Mila Lira The Town of Superior Parks and Recreation department has been running full steam ahead since its grand opening at the new Town Hall (Roosevelt School) in late September. Parks and Recreation Director Barbara Arriola explained that on average 30 kids attend the open recreation nights held

on Thursday and Fridays. She encourages Superior youth ages 8-18 to come and enjoy the center on Thursday and Friday’s from 4 to 8 p.m. She explained that they will have some holiday activities in the coming weeks. The center hopes to open more hours in the future if grant funding becomes available. Arriola also stated that they

Pastor’s Corner

God considered to be sin. They would disobey God’s rules and then attend church, saying that God was okay with their detestable lifestyle. They had created a worthless, false religion for themselves. It was not from God. It seems to be a common

choice for people to ‘do their own thing’ and yet call it Christianity. This idea comes because they have not bothered to study our instruction manual, the Bible. When we only read our favorite or familiar passages, we miss out on important, life changing Scriptures. If a new concept enters our mind, it is not recognized as correct or incorrect, yet it seems to be reasonable and acceptable to us. As a believer in Almighty God, it is necessary to understand the Bible from cover to cover. We must have a spiritual teacher who has been trained to communicate the truths of God to us. The Scriptural lists of sins that we find throughout the Old and New Testaments, were aimed at the good church people, not at unbelievers. These Godly people considered their actions to be acceptable with the Lord. In our passage, God says that He has been watching. In verse 19 He adds this note: “they are harming themselves, to their own shame.” We are reminded often in the Holy Bible to carefully consider our thoughts, attitudes, actions and the words we speak. Whatever we do or say, whether right or wrong, will always have consequences in our lives and the lives of those around us. God gives us really good advice in verse 13. If we are not willing to listen when He speaks to us, He will not answer when we call out to Him. Jeremiah 8:6 and 7 tell us – “each pursues his See Pastor, Page 5

Talented youth of Superior get involved to give thanks By Taylor Beard It was a joyful evening, last Thursday, Nov. 10, when the Superior Substance Abuse Coalition hosted its fourth annual Appreciation Dinner. The Multipurpose room of the Superior Junior/ Senior High School filled with many individuals from not just the community of Superior, but the large surrounding area, who have reached out to help the coalition in its mission to combat drug and alcohol abuse in Superior. A blessing given by local CYM student Jesse Zavala started off the evening in a great way. He was the first of many local students who were involved in helping the evening leave a memorable impression. After a wonderfully heartfelt welcome and introduction to the evening, given by SSAC Chair Elizabeth Magallanez, the group

was treated to a special performance given by some of the very charming ‘little’ local ladies in town. The Hip Hop Shop, started and lead by local lovely Billie Jo Villaverde, harnessed and showcased the fantastic talent of the younger generation of Superior gals, from tiny to teen. Outstanding is the best word to fully describe their performance. The rest of the evening’s entertainment was provided by the Coolidge United Dance Crew and their contribution to the evening was a stunning as the first. Behind the scenes, other talented youngsters (a.k.a. Superior High Culinary Arts Students) worked their magic helping Chef Ed Farmer of Kiss the Chef Catering. Chef Ed devised an incredible menu for the evening, and with the help of these superbly talented students, was able to bring his appetizing

The students taking part in the Culinary arts program are already rockin’ their way towards being unbelievable chefs, but working with Chef Ed gives them a nice punt further along. While guests chowed down, longtime SSAC volunteer Michael A. Flores II introduced the guest speaker, Steve Henry, Pinal County Sheriff Paul

Babeu’s Chief Deputy Sheriff. After speaking on how education is essential in prevention of drug and alcohol abuse, Henry was very pleased to present the coalition with check in the generous amount of $1,500 from Pinal County for the great effort they put towards these exact points. The contribution was an unexpected, yet excellent surprise for the coalition.

Taylor’s Take: Tea with Me ... General Store filled with By Taylor Beard Many of you have gotten to know the lovely Betty Gallego since she moved back to town a few years ago from California and if you haven’t met her yet, your day will come. Betty is really full of life and excitement; she is one of those people who you speak to for a few seconds and immediately think ‘I’ll bet this one’s got quite a story’. So, as I mentioned previously, Betty moved here from California and recently she decided to open a sweet, little shop, La Serna General Store, located on Pinal Avenue. I like that the name has General in the title, because ‘general’ is the only word you could really use to encompass the many elements of this shop; it’s rather diverse to be blatantly honest. I am a great believer that you can learn something new from every person you meet and life has proven this to me; however, with Betty, I have this feeling that I will learn something new from her with every interaction we share and

that is a wonderful feeling. La Serna sort of embodies this idea, that of ‘learning something new’, since one of the many attributes or rather some of the treasures within, are the abundant and beautiful artwork and antiques. Just like Betty, I feel like each one probably has a unique and interesting story; for instance, Betty showed me a, hmmm…what shall I call it? amalgamation… that looked like it was one part antique silver teapot, one part crystal lamp base and one part delicate old clock. I would love to know what that person was on when they boiled up this idea … ‘it’ is pretty awesome! La Serna has this wonderful Egyptian thing going on. When I first walked in, The Bangles’ ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ was definitely on repeat in my mind. Dotted amongst the many incredible antiques, you’ll find several different Egyptian pieces, whether it be jewelry or framed, painted papyrus or mini statuettes of the gods. I have to admit this is fairly cool, taking the exquisite

afterthoughts from one unbelievable desert culture and dropping them into gem situated in an entirely different desert. Again, you could learn loads by simply walking through the door…if you’re young, you might even be inspired to become an Egyptologist. Beyond the Egyptian element, there are oodles of gorgeous pieces: unique and stunning jewelry, old silver, cool watches, lovely brandy sets, limitless paintings, neat old bags (no, not a nickname for cool grandmothers), the list truly goes on and I would venture to guess that you would be hard pressed to find anything similar in the state, let alone the country. La Serna is the sister shop to another shop in Pasadena, California. Betty and her son are very selective about the merchandise they want to sell and this work out well for the patrons because you are guaranteed something amazing. The other great aspect of this relationship is that it provides for continually rotating inventory. There is always something different and

unique. Occasionally, Betty will buy certain items if they peak her interest, but she explained she really likes to leave those type of decisions to her son. “He’s the expert,” she laughed. If you are interested in selling an antique or some heirloom jewelry, drop in and speak with Peter. This is the exact sort of place you would want to come shopping for something marvelous for your wife for your anniversary or wonderfully special for your grandfather on his 70th birthday. Betty’s son, Peter Gallego, is an expert in watches and jewelry, qualified to repair and appraise both jewelry and watches; along with this he also makes jewelry. Peter visits frequently and will happily give free verbal appraisals on watches and jewelry, for written appraisals there will be a charge. Following along the lines of ‘general,’ La Serna also sells coffee, tea, soft drinks, snack and candy… fulfilling the role of a general store. The store itself has been in her family

Betty Gallego stands ready to serve at the La Serna General Store. (Taylor Beard photo) for several generations and upon arriving in Superior, Betty set forth on renovating the property to its original glory, complete with delicate tin ceilings and beautiful moldings. La Serna has a beautiful porch and is a quaint spot to stop and have a cup of tea with some friends. Betty has recently added Snow Cones to the menu. When I dropped in Betty had just made fresh chocolate chip cookies…I was pretty stoked on the gooey chocolate goodness. Currently, Betty is

running a 10% off special for the holidays through January 1 on merchandise in the store when you mention this article. This is fantastic because the prices are already very reasonable. If you see something you love, but do not have the means to purchase it immediately, La Serna offers $1 layaway during the holidays. You only need a dollar to hold something until you can purchase it. Beyond this, if you don’t actually have time to shop, you can simply give

La Serna is also offering a special discount to seniors 65+, $5 watch batteries. There are several reasons to check out La Serna General Store: a cup of tea with friends, a visual history lesson, meeting a super cool woman, grabbing a snow cone, or finding an awesome gift for someone you love… typically some of these reasons overlap and you end up hanging out in the shop for several hours, like I did. Either way, I promise if you decide to grace La Serna with your presence you will find every moment spent decidedly delightful. La Serna General Store is located at 25 North Pinal Avenue in Superior and is open from Tuesday through Saturday 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. La Serna’s phone number is 520.689.2660 and the website is
