Denard A. Brandt

September 16, 1922 - October 22, 2011 Denard A. Brandt passed away peacefully Oct. 22, 2011 in Tucson. He was born in New Bern, North Carolina on Sept. 16, 1922. He attended Roskruge Junior High and graduated from Tucson High School in 1939. He became an assemblyman at an airplane factory in Burbank, California during World War II and married Grace V. Heltman. Two years later, he joined the Merchant Marine and was a machinist on the Dalles, a tanker. He ranched briefly in Aravaipa Canyon and then later became employed with Kennecott Copper Corporation in Hayden. While at Kennecott, he was awarded a patent for a machine part for the mining process. He was eventually promoted from Maintenance Supervisor to Planner. Meanwhile, three children were added to the family: Denard A. Brandt II, Clarine (Haslag)

and Ellen (Parkhurst). In 1973, Denard and Grace divorced. In 1974, he married widow Louise Burnam. They moved to Salt Lake City where he worked for National Lead Company in their maintenance department for many years. After a brief retirement, Denard became an independent consultant for several years. Denard is preceded in death by his first wife Grace Brandt Hosea and his second wife Louise Burnam Brandt. He is survived by his immediate family, Denard A. Brandt II (Roxana), Clarine Haslag (Tom), and Ellen Parkhurst (David); and grandchildren, Bill and Matt Haslag, Naomi Passarelli, and great grandchild Joseph Passarelli. He is also survived by stepchildren, Ron (Judy) Burnam, Lynette Phipps, Cathy Tepper and Carol Burnam, and their children, Angie,

Heather, Tiffany, Nick, Aislon, Lauren Tepper, Tracy and Marti Jo, several great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Those who knew him will miss a great storyteller, analytical and creative mind, and loving father. Services are pending at East Lawn Cemetery, Tucson.

Meet your Hayden Town Manager, Bill Leister By Mila Lira The Hayden Town Council recently hired Bill Leister to be the Town Manager. While several of the newer members of the Hayden Town Government believe that Leister is the first town manager that has served the Town of Hayden, that is not strictly true. Gayle Carnes, retired managing editor of the Copper Area News Group, reported that Hayden has not had a town manager since the 1970s when Eugene King was the manager. King retired in the mid 1970s. Bill comes to the Town of Hayden from the Central Arizona Association of

Governments (CAAG). Bill was employed at CAAG as their Transportation Planner. He also has experience with grant coordination and has extensive background in governmental finance. Prior to working for CAAG, Bill worked for the tribal government at the San Carlos Indian Reservation. He graduated from Arizona State University in 1970. Bill explained that he is excited to be working for the people of Hayden. One of the things he said he enjoys best about doing this type of work is helping people. One of the immediate goals he has is to promote Hayden. Currently the

Town does not have a website or email system. He would like to have a web site built that promotes Hayden and is something that the residents can use to keep up with Town business. He also anticipates setting up email accounts for the staff at the Town of Hayden. Bill is a lifelong resident of Arizona. He was born and raised in Phoenix and moved to Globe when “Phoenix got too big,” explained Leister. Bill has been married to his wife Carolyn for 44 years. They have a son Jared and daughter-in-law Jessica and the light of his eye is his grandson Gavin.

Kearny Police Report 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. Only criminal citations are listed. All damages are

estimates. Oct. 27 A 17-year-old male juvenile was arrested for possession of marijuana in a drug free zone, possession of drug paraphernalia, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was transported to Florence and booked into the Pinal County Juvenile Detention Center. A 16-year-old female juvenile was arrested for possession of marijuana in a drug free zone.

CAC’s Dennis Jenkins to retire PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. – After four decades of outstanding service to Central Arizona College, its students and the residents of Pinal County, President/CEO Dennis Jenkins will step down from his position effective Jan. 3, 2012. “Today, I announce my retirement as president/CEO of CAC effective the end of the day on

Jan. 3, 2012,” Jenkins stated. “Beginning tomorrow (Nov. 2) through Jan. 3, 2012, I will use accumulated leave.” Jenkins said it has been a tremendous 40 years at CAC.   “I am very proud of the accomplishments and progress at CAC and the fact it is a great asset to Pinal County,” he said. “I leave with my head high for

putting CAC in a better place. I want to thank the Governing Board and the communities across the county for their continuous support of me and CAC.” In a joint statement, CAC’s Governing Board said it was grateful, as all of Pinal County should be, to President Dennis Jenkins for his 40 years of ser-

vice to the college. The board cited his numerous stellar accomplishments under his leadership, including passage of the general bond for the expansion of current CAC locations and the building of two new campuses in the city of Maricopa and in the San Tan Valley.   The board also lauded Jen-

kins’s ability to keep CAC financially sound in a time when many community colleges are on less solid financial footing. Jenkins’ work ethic has been unparalleled, his loyalty and dedication are beyond reproach, and his decisions and the resulting actions have always been in the best interest of CAC. Dr. Doris Helmich, the vice

president for student services, will be in charge until the CAC Governing Board holds a special meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011. The meeting will be held at 11:30 a.m. in room T116 on the Signal Peak Campus to decide on and share a plan for temporary leadership in preparation for a nation-wide search for a new president.

By Georgie Wood (     In 1993, there was a safety evaluation done on the living quarters where the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ranger for the Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness (ACW) stayed, and I find it amusing that some have referred to that trailer home as the “Abbey trailer”. The controversial author Edward Abbey had lived in that trailer home for just a short while after the Defenders of Wildlife (DOW) had assumed the Nature Conservancy (TNC)  mortgage on our Wood Brothers Panorama Ranch in 1972

and had purchased that trailer home from our friends, Bud and Helen Burnap, who had our permission to live there when we had owned the ranch. After Ed Abbey lived there as “coordinating custodian” for DOW, Larry Coak, the Preserve Ranger for DOW, lived there, and after the DOW-managed George Whittell Wildlife Preserve was returned to TNC in 1988, BLM Ranger, Andrew “Andy” Wigg, lived there longer than anyone, followed by BLM Rangers Katie Fenn and Sue Morgan.      After BLM had no luck in buying that site, but a larger

one, from TNC, in April of 1998 BLM had an environmental assessment for a new Ranger station on BLM’s Brandenburg Campsite much further down the Aravaipa road, despite the fact that the original site was where a Ranger could more effectively administer the ACW. When the new Ranger station was being built, in February of 1999 BLM Ranger Sue Morgan watched my husband, Cliff Wood, dowse (or witch) for a well site close by, and Cliff, who had witched lots of wells with success, found a site for a well and marked it, but the site he found was not where

a well driller later drilled at two nearby sites with no water found. Perhaps BLM was required to use a hydrologist before drilling?     For a while, the new Ranger station, which must have been costly to build, had no electricity to the site, so a generator was used, and water was hauled in by a big truck because the site had no well. After Ranger Sue Morgan left for another job in Utah, Michelle Mistler was introduced as BLM’s new west-end Ranger at an October 2000 meeting of the Aravaipa Property Owners Association (APOA), and three years later it was reported that

there was no full-time BLM Ranger, but the position was expected to be filled in January of 2004, and that volunteers were hauling the trash. Patrick O’Neil became the next Ranger, and it was reported in April of 2004 that the electricity and water was hooked up to the new Ranger station, with the water being piped from the Barassi property by the creek below, but the water service was on hold until a bacteria problem was solved.     The many hikers to ACW were able to drive to the original Ranger site to park their vehicles before setting off on their adven-

tures. I have often wondered what their thoughts were as they began their hikes and could see the area where the Panorama Ranch homesites had been before the 1995 fire, or if they knew the history of the area, or if they cared. “Sister” Eulalia Bourne from our San Pedro River country, and the author of “Woman In Levis”, had thought our Panorama Ranch homesites a paradise with its flowers, grass, and trees - like an oasis in the desert! When we sold the ranch to TNC in 1970, the thought never entered my mind that it would ever change. How naive we were!

There are 32 females and 4 males. The Footes also have two horses, one mustang and five working dogs. Twenty of the goats have to be milked twice a day. This keeps them busy throughout the day. They also make natural raw milk goat cheese at Foote’s Hold Dairy. They are one

In Loving Memory of Our Beloved Grandson

Anthony M. Carrillo

6/14/87 – 11/2/2008 It’s been 3 years since you’ve been gone, but we still miss you and love you. Love Tata Manolin & Nana Veva

of two dairies in the state certified to make raw milk goat cheese. John starts milking the goats early in the morning and again in the evening. Crystal then starts turning the milk into cheese. “The milk is 107 degrees and I lower the temperature to 86 degrees,” Crystal explained. “At that point I add the culture and let it set for an hour. I drain the whey, add spices and sea salt and then hang it in cheesecloth anywhere from 6 to 24 hours. The whey goes to the Double Check Ranch where it is fed to the pigs. It makes their meat sweeter. The cheese is pressed and then placed in the refrigerator for two to six months. After it is aged we seal it in natural bees wax and it is ready for market.” Seems like a long process. “It is not how fast you make it,” Crystal said, “but how good you make it.” Foote’s Hold Dairy makes two cheeses a day

which weigh between two and a half to five pounds. They hope to double the output next year. They make and sell three cheeses regularly. A queso blanco (white cheese), pepper jack and a queso rojo. They also make a salt free Panir East Indian cheese that is used in Indian cooking like tofu. During the winter holidays Crystal makes a cranberry cheese which is a white cheese with cranberries in it. From December to January Foote’s Dairy sells a holiday log with a spicy cheese similar to bleu cheese that is rolled in pecans or almonds. The health benefits of goat’s milk are many. John and Crystal pointed out that goat’s milk has less fat and more vitamins and minerals that cow’s milk. It has 13 percent more calcium and 26 percent more B vitamins. It is easier to digest and people allergic to cow’s milk can tolerate goat’s milk. “Goat’s milk is good for every mammal on the

is genetically modified organisms. The goat’s cheese is natural with no additives. It also tastes great. You can purchase their

goat cheese at some of the farmers markets such as St. Phillips Plaza, Oro Valley, Jesse Owens Park, Alan’s Organic, 77north in Catalina and Margaret’s

Garden Market (Guyton’s) in Oracle. You can also buy the cheese at Foote’s Hold Dairy 5850 North Dudleyville Road but you may want to call ahead otherwise you will be greeted by at least a dozen goats. You can contact Foote’s Hold Dairy at (520) 483-2029.

Southeast Arizona Land Exchange moves forward By Mila Lira The US House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to approve the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2011. The vote was approved with 235 votes in favor of passage and 186 against the passage of the bill. The legislation will allow Rio Tinto to swap 5300 acres of environmentally sensitive land that they own for 2400 acres of forest service land in the Tonto National Forest with the federal government. The swap is needed for the development of the Resolution Copper mine. The ore body they expect to mine will produce 80 percent of North America’s need for copper. The vote in the House of Representative is the farthest this legislation has gone since it was first introduced by then Congressman Rick Renzi in 2005. Passage of the bill did not occur without great debate and requests from House Democrats to amend parts of the legislation or stall the bill all together. The amendments were discussed in the House Rules Committee on Monday and Tuesday prior to the hearing. There were three proposed amendments to the bill all of which failed. The first amendment was requested by Arizona Representative Raul Grijalva who is a longtime opponent to the legislation. His amendment would have required that the remote operations center for the proposed mine be located in Superior. The amendment also required that Resolution actively recruit and hire local employees, that all ore produced from the mine be processed in the United States and all equipment used at the mine be made in the United States. The second amendment was entered by Representative Ben Ray Lujan, a Democrat from New Mexico. His amendments would have exempted all Native American sacred and cultural sites from the land conveyance. Edward Markey a Democrat from Massachusetts brought forward the third amendment. His amendment would have required as a condition of the land exchange that Resolution Copper pay an eight percent royalty to the United States on all locatable minerals produced from the federal land that the company

receives in the exchange. The Democrats supported this amendment because the Mining Law of 1872 does not require any royalty payment. Congressman Ed Pastor, who was raised in the copper mining town of Miami, Arizona also supported this amendment. In his speech during the debates, Pastor said that he could not support this bill as it is written. Congressman Pastor introduced a similar bill into Congress several years ago. In a final attempt just prior to the official vote, Rep. Markey requested that the bill not be passed because .03 percent of Rio Tinto’s mining operations mine uranium in other countries. He stated that the uranium could be used by terrorists and to construct a nuclear bomb. Markey’s very passionate speech on the floor of the House included a picture of Iran’s current President Mahmud Ahmadinejad. One critical issue that Democrats continued to bring up was the automation that Rio Tinto uses in their mining operations. Democrats argued that the proposed mining project will not create the jobs they claim it will because robots will be working in the mine. Several Republican Congressmen from across Arizona and America debated in favor of the legislation. They reminded their colleagues across the aisle that the legislation once approved will create jobs for Americans; add billions of dollars into the economy, and preserves 5300 acres of environmentally important land in Arizona. The Republicans also assured them that the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) will be conducted prior to any minerals being extracted from the land. Arizona Representative Jeff Flake shared in his speech how local businessmen Albo Guzman and Jeb Dalmolin are just a few of the current contractors working on projects for Resolution Copper. He also commented that 90 percent of the 500 current employees on the project are from Arizona. Representative Gosar who introduced the bill into Congress earlier this year reminded his colleagues that the lands that are to be exchanged will preserve the ecologically important 7B Ranch in Pinal County, and will create

3700 jobs without costing the taxpayer a dime. The following members of the Arizona Congressional delegation voted in favor of the passage of the bill: Rep. Gosar, Rep. Quayle, Rep. Flake, Rep. Franks and Rep. Schweikert. Representatives Grijalva and Pastor voted in opposition to the bill. Representative Giffords did not vote

on the bill. Giffords was absent from the vote due to her ongoing recovery from injuries sustained in the shooting this winter. Several local supporters of the Land Exchange gathered to watch the hearing at the Resolution Copper Main St. Office, upon the official announcement of the passage of the house bill there was a big sigh of relief and

cheers echoed from the supporters. Many of these supporters have been patiently waiting for this step in the process. Roy Chavez the spokesperson for the Retired Miners and Concerned Citizens group remarked on the passage of the legislation. He explained to the Copper Area News that they were “disappointed and disgusted with the

outcome of the vote, but they we not discouraged.” The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation of Act of 2011 will still need to pass the Senate and be approved by President Barack Obama before the legislation is finalized. The legislation is expected to face some resistance in the democratically controlled Senate.

Copper Area readers support the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act By Mila Lira The Copper Area News Group ran a poll over the weekend following the passage of H.R. 1904 The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2011 and of those participating in the online survey there was overwhelming support for the project and a strong belief that the Resolution Copper project will help to rebuild and stimulate the economy of the Copper Corridor. The first question that was asked in the survey was: Do you support the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act? There were 48 total responses to this question, 37 people (77%) of those responses said that they support the land exchange while only 10 (20.8%) said that they do not support the land exchange. There was 1 no vote. Those responding to the survey were allowed to comment on each question. All comments will remain anonymous: Here are some of those comments to question one: • Copper is one of the “C” in Arizona, and is vital to the existence of this state and country. As the daughter of a retired copper miner, and who’s first job was in a copper smelter, I fully support mining in Arizona. It’s also important to develop a non mining economy, so when mining operations shut down, the area wont revert back to a ghost town, experiencing the current economic struggles. • I do not believe federally protected land that has been designated for recreation and has a cultural and spiritual significance should be touched for profit, especially by foreign entities with major human rights

and environmental charges against them. • I would expect Resolution Copper to mine at the highest standards available in their operation. I would expect the company to find ways to return to the community the tax base taken from the areas that will not receive any taxes because this is an exchange of land, not a purchase. I hold RCM accountable for the environment and community and expect the company to be an upholding citizen, and one that has money to put into the community where it is established. • I am opposed to the royalty tax on extracted ore. Copper mining is difficult and expensive enough. We need less taxation and more conservative representation. • The land to be exchanged is part of our National Forest, a camp ground where many people go. When it is gone, it will be gone forever. Question 2 of the survey asked: Do you think that Congress really has an understanding of what our region needs when it comes to job creation? There were a total of 48 respondents in this question a 37 (77%) of the respondents said No that Congress does not have an understanding of what our region needs when it comes to job creation. Ten (20.8%) of the respondents said yes that Congress does have an understanding. There was one non-responding vote. The comments for this questions varied but most expressed their overall concerns with Congress. • Arizona doesn’t have the manufacturing jobs or non mining industries that other regions of the county have, so mining is an

alternative to joblessness in this area. What Congress ought to do is concentrate on changing the antiquated mining laws, so that foreign companies don’t exploit the resources, people and mining culture similar to what BHP did. • If they really knew the nuts and bolts of the agreement and workforce profile alongside the hiring practices of Rio Tinto and BHP they would see this farce of job creation is more like profiteering from economically depressed areas without accountability. • I know this to be the case that Congress does NOT understand the West, they rather view it as a big vacationland and do not understand how people live and work here. I think a few do, namely AZ delegation. • I believe Congress is aware that we need jobs but they don’t know how to create them. That should be left up to business people and private companies to create jobs or develop the project that will. They should support legislation that help facilitate job creation! • I think Congress is made up of a group of egotistical fools who are out for themselves, their political position, and their career. I don’t believe anyone in congress deserves to be there because they’re a bunch of spoiled individuals who know only how to oppose each other and have no connection to the People they supposedly represent (and definitely do not!). The third and final question of the survey was: Do you believe that the Resolution Copper Mine will help stimulate and rebuild the economy of the copper corridor? Forty-eight readers responded to this question and 40 (83.3%) of them agreed

that that the Resolution Copper Mine will help stimulate and rebuild the local economy. Of the 48 respondents only eight (16.6%) said that the project will not stimulate the local economy. There was one no response. Some of the comments to this question included: • I believe, if done correctly and responsibly, RCM will provide good jobs. What I hope is that RCM will continue to care about the community and show, as done in Superior, that they are giving back to the People who have made this all possible. For the record, I recognize the work that RCM has put into bringing Superior back to life, dedicating trails, and working with the community to move ahead thoughtfully and carefully. Thank you. • I believe they will take the money and run back to England and leave us with another toxic mess to clean up at OUR expense • Seems to already be working for Superior! • By default it will, due to its geographical location, and skilled labor currently in the area. Many of those who’ve left for mining jobs in Nevada, Utah, and etc. will return home, and revive the economy in communities • I believe it will stimulate Gold Canyon, Apache Junction and encroach on our way of life.

After the fight: A follow-up to the House vote By Taylor Beard The debate over the H.R. 1904 or its predecessors has spanned several years in and out of the town of Superior with many people for the many benefits of the bill and many people against the destructive forces they feel the bill will bring to the area. On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the bill passed on the floor of the House of Representatives for the first time. Yet during the heated debates taking place on the floor preceding its passing, many relevant points were brought up and passed over without revisiting the issue. Arizona Congressional Representative Paul Gosar and Jon Cherry, Vice President for Environment, Legal and External Relations at Resolution Copper, took the time following the vote to explain anything that might have been brushed over. In the past, Congressman Ed Pastor had been a proponent of a previous version of this bill, yet this time around he took a very different stance on the matter, prompting some anger from local supporters of the bill who were confused over the change of heart. “On one hand,” Gosar said, “I was happy that he acknowledged what we tried to do with this bill, you know, our way of listening and trying to incorporate everyone into a solution. Then again, it also makes me sad that we’ve become so partisan up here that we don’t take advantage of what’s good.” Cherry explained: “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and they have to vote their conscience and that’s obviously what he did.” During the debate, representatives in opposition to the bill repeatedly referenced an eight percent royalty that they would like to see made part of the bill. This would be an additional eight percent taxed on profits of the mine above and beyond the taxes and royalties that they would already be paying to the government. When asked about what such a royalty would have meant to the operation, Cherry explained, “This bill

is about a land exchange. Congressman Flake gave a very good rebuttal, saying he has been working on this in the past. Royalty issues belong with the 1872 Mining Law debate, not on a land exchange. It essentially would have preempted the existing mining law.” Cherry added, “Why would you be singling out one company in the United States to apply that to? It’s picking and choosing winners and that’s not appropriate. It was intended to kill this bill, not to look at policy.” “That’s exactly right,” Gosar agreed. “If you’re going to consider a differences of the way our mining act looks at a mineral, then you need to do it all the way across the board, not pick and choose this company over another. What we need to do is then go back to the full mining act and make that full disclosure and change. But until then what they need to do is abide by this and how this process works. It’s very common sense, very practical. When you start talking about the facts, this is why this thing wins out.” At several points during the House debate, the comment was repeatedly made that the mine was going to be manned by robots, not human beings. The opposition referenced the Pilbarra mines in Australia, which are remotely operated. The bill, they argued, would not be for human jobs in Arizona, but instead would give profits to a company that would stock its workforce with robots. When asked to explain the role of humans and robots in the Resolution Copper project, Cherry said, “Just because you have a robot doesn’t mean that you have fewer people. We are using these things to be more efficient and to work even safer. Every piece of automated equipment still needs someone to program it, someone to operate it. When we talk about remote equipment, there may not be a driver sitting on that piece of equipment. He is going to be back at the end of the drift or up on the surface. There still has to be human interaction with that piece of equipment on several different levels.”

The Pilbara mining operations in Western Australia is an entirely different operation with several factors dictating why it is remotely operated, such as safety, location and ore type. The opposition also stated that the numbers of jobs that would result from this project had been grossly inflated. In response, Cherry said, “We’ve done a prefeasibility study. We’re just wrapping that up. We have the preliminary engineering designs. We have the design of what this mine is going to look like. We know how many people it is going to take to operate it. We have gone through that engineering process and part of the process is determining the workforce that is required. It is all based on the fundamental engineering design and the fundamental engineering principles.” During the debate, an amendment was introduced by opposing Congressman Raul Grijalva, essentially dictating where Resolution Copper could hold its company headquarters and that the company would only be allowed to utilize American made products. “We’ve so hamstrung industry that no one wants to play in America anymore,” Gosar said. “No one wants to play in America anymore because they cannot afford to.” Rep. Lujan of New Mexico suggested an amendment to the bill to keep lands that Native American Tribes deemed “Sacred” out of the bill. Part of the Land Exchange Bill, Gosar explained, includes the donation of 110 acres of Resolution property on Apache Leap to the federal government for long term protection. “We are starting the block cave mining away from the Leap and we will have high tech monitoring in place to watch the Leap,” Cherry said. “The bill itself prohibits us from impacting the Leap.” The federal government, he continued, evaluated the “sacred sites.” They gave a fact of no finding. The Tribes challenged the finding in court and the court upheld the Forest Service’s finding.

(Taylor Beard photos) Towards the end of the debate, the opposing congressional members lashed out against the bill from the standpoint that supporting it would support terrorism, since Rio Tinto holds a stake in a Uranium mine that is minimally owned by the Government of Iran. “Rio Tinto owns and operates a uranium mine in Namibia, Africa,” Cherry said. “We own roughly 65 percent of that operation, along with the Namibian Government. The IFIC own 15 percent of Rossing Uranium. It was done in 1975 when the Shah

of Iran was in control, so that agreement and arrangement happened prior to the Islamic Revolution. That property is still retained by the government of Iran, but since that time, we have taken steps. There is no nuclear technology that will ever be transferred to Iran. We do not sell uranium to Iran. We have frozen all of their dividends and financial interests in their part. Provisions have been taken to not allow the two board members (from Iran) to attend meetings. We are in full compliance with all of the U.N. Sanctions. We are in full

compliance with all of the law. H.R.1904 does not waive any Federal law, statute or sanction – period.” With the passing of the bill, both men are optimistic about what will come next. When asked if the bill would need to be changed before it is brought before the senate, Cherry replied, “Hopefully not at all. We’re very pleased with the bill the way that it’s written and we hope that it goes through the Senate the way that it is written. It’s a good bill.” “It’s a good day,” Gosar said. “It’s team work. We all did this together.”
