Opinion

Economic growth depends on new and old industries alike By Martin Sepulveda The road to economic growth and fiscal sustainability is paved with lower taxes, a balanced budget and a less intrusive regulatory environment. When these conditions are met, the private sector can flourish and create jobs.  Arizona is blessed with five C’s: copper, cattle, cotton, citrus and climate. The first C, copper, was a critical engine of growth throughout Arizona’s history. In recent

years, however, the weight of excessive federal regulation crushed growth in this industry. But this can change. The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conversation Act of 2013 is a great first step. The bill – sponsored by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) – authorizes the construction of an underground copper mine in Superior, Arizona through a land exchange. The economic impact of this mine is staggering.

Dedicated to providing services to the families of the Copper Corridor with care and compassion

The mine will create approximately 3,000 construction jobs over an initial six to ten year period. Then, once the mine is fully operational, it will employ more than 3,700 people. These are high-paying jobs that range from $40,000 to $120,000 annually in an area of the state that is particularly suffering economically. The total economic impact of the mine on the state of Arizona is estimated at $61.4 billion. That means more than $1 billion per year over the life span of the mine. Additionally, the mine will generate almost $20 billion

in federal, state, county and local tax revenue. In order to be successful, Arizona must create new jobs and attract industries that may not have a significant presence in Arizona while continuing to develop the industries that helped make our state great. We have a unique opportunity to create real net new sustainable employment, now it’s time to leverage it.

Special dinner held for Jessee Walker – donations for Youth Group By Nina Crowder San Manuel Miner It was a wonderful evening late last month at Mammoth Elementary as friends of Jessee Walker attended to celebrate his birthday with a special spaghetti dinner and help support his Mammoth Christian Youth Center. Jessee is the leader of Mammoth Christian Youth Center consisting of approximately 20 youth. The youth, as well as many volunteers, helped with the preparations and clean up of the dinner. The public was welcome to attend and donations were accepted for the youth center. The

donations of the evening totaled over $1,000. The evening was a fun filled event for all who attended with singing, slide shows of previous events and lots of laughter. While the $1,000 in donations may seem like a lot of money it cost the youth center over $5,000 a week for summer camp in Prescott. The youth center also attends a weekend camp in the winter at Prescott. They try to do different programs during the year. They have plays, musical events, and they help with other charity organizations. They are also involved with drug

prevention, bible study, struggling families, homeless teens and sex abstinence courses. The youth center holds car washes, fundraisers and banquets throughout the year. Having the youth participate in this event and other events

helps them learn about responsibilities, finances and hopefully making correct choices in their lives. Jessee formed the youth center about five years ago and felt the youth needed a place to have events and learn about life. Recently

the youth center has helped with some youth studying and obtaining their GED’s. This has been a wonderful addition to be able to provide. If interested parties would like to make a donation to the Mammoth Christian Youth Center the address is

P.O. Box 582, Mammoth, AZ 85618. For questions or volunteers please feel free to contact Jessee Walker at 520-975-2653. Jessee would like to thank Larry Ramirez and MSM Community Schools for the donation of the facility to hold the event.

Knights of Columbus to serve up benefit taco dinner this Friday in Mammoth The Knights of Columbus, founded on principles of charity, unity and fraternity in 1882, was formed to assist the disabled, infirm and needy members, as well as their families.

Lady Cougars finish first in Central Junior High League The first season is done with hopefully some learning experiences that were both fun and helpful for many of the student/ athletes here at Mt. Vista School. A goal for some might have been just to be a part of the team, whether it was to cheer from the bench or stands, or to give it your best whenever your name was called for game time. Our seventh grade girls volleyball team along with a sprinkling of ambitious sixth graders, gave it their best and ended the regular season in first place in the Central Junior High League. What that meant is that they would have to take their “A” game to Ray on Saturday, Oct. 19 for a

Rancho Robles hosts music festival By John Hernandez San Manuel Miner El Rancho Robles in Oracle was the site of the Playing for Change Music Festival on Saturday October 19. Over 250 people attended the festival. The event featured a kid’s music and art workshop, food and art vendors, camping under the trees, a drum circle, farmers market, zip line and some outstanding music. The zip line which is now a permanent attraction at Rancho Robles was popular with the kids and adults who enjoyed zipping down the cable over the desert. The Playing for Change Music Festival was a benefit for the Playing for Change Foundation which provides musical instruments and music instruction for kids around the world and locally. All the bands that performed volunteered their talent and time. The bands and musicians included Lexa Raquel; David Liers & Creosote King; Diane Davis; Donato; Youth of Oracle; Undercover; One Heart Beat featuring Blackman Clay; Edna & Ely (B Cool) with Malik Alkabir & Jacques Taylor; and One Love. Blake Campbell, owner of El Rancho Robles donated the use of the ranch grounds for the event. The Playing for Change Foundation is dedicated to creating positive social change through music education. If you would like to learn more about this organization or donate visit their website at www.playingforchange. org.

Volume 3, Number 2

Science Club learns about native plants and foods By Mia Dale Mammoth STEM Science Club Secretary In our afterschool science club, we have been baking squash cookies and prickly pear cookies. We will soon be making mesquite bread. Our class took a field trip to the desert in Oracle

where we picked mesquite beans at the Oracle Park. We also picked prickly pears on Linda Vista Road. The class learned to follow directions for safety and we learned how to pick ripe fruit and beans. We have been working hard to grind the beans and juice

the prickly pears for the native foods. On October 23rd, our school held a Family Night. From 3:30-5:30 pm, the science club sold pumpkins donated by the Smallhouse family. And from 5:30-6:30 pm, we provided snacks for parents

and also sold prickly pear jelly. We asked for donations for science club for field trips and projects. Thank you to all the parents who have helped us with baking and donating ingredients. Also, thank you Mrs. Faulkenberry for all your expertise and help!

Darkling Beetles

The Mammoth STEM kindergartens and first graders have been experimenting to learn if the darkling beetles can reproduce at a rate that will provide food for our bearded dragons throughout the year. There were 100 beetles last year and now we have counted 200. We feed each bearded dragons 2 larvae every day. The bearded dragons also eat 3 crickets a day. Our class will order crickets soon so we can start to produce enough crickets also. The bearded dragons love to eat both kinds of insects.

Science Club members prepare prickly pear fruit to be juiced and made into jelly.

The Mammoth STEM Pre-K Class has been busy investigating pumpkins. They have been learning the inside and outside parts of a pumpkin. They have made predictions and tested to see if pumpkins float or sink. Students have enjoyed learning songs and reading stories about pumpkins. Students have also learned the life cycle of the pumpkin and what better way to observe the life cycle than a field trip to the Marana Pumpkin Patch and Farm! There the students jumped on a jumping pillow, visited a petting zoo, took a trip around the farm on a train, climbed a haystack, and finally they picked their very own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. The students had a terrific time! A special thank you to the chaperones and parents who helped make this trip a success!

Miner Swimmers make waves at regional swim meet Miner Swimmers competed in the Southern Arizona Regional Qualifier Swim Meet in Oro Valley at Canyon Del Oro High School on Nov. 1-2. Twenty teams from Southern Arizona attended the meet as a season finale and hoped to achieve a qualifying times for the state championship meet to be held Nov. 8-9. Miner Swimmers were at their best bumping up against some of the best swimmers in the state from much larger schools like Catalina Foothills, Ironwood Ridge, Canyon Del Oro, Rincon, Buena, Tucson, Desert View, and Douglas. In fact Miner Swimmers more than held their own. The girls 10th place put them respectably right in the middle of the 20 team field with 75 points. The boys had an amazing meet and finished 6th place overall, finishing ahead of some much larger schools like CDO, Sabino, Douglas and Buena. The girls team had a great meet. Eight of the girl swimmers did well enough in preliminaries to swim in finals on Saturday. Among the most excited was Sophomore Mariela Canisales when learning she had earned that 16th seed in the finals in the 100 butterfly. Senior Amara Apuron lead the Miner charge with three top eight finishes. After earning a state qualifying time in the 200 individual medley with a 6th place finish with a time of 2:35.35, she went on to swim the 500 freestyle for an 8th place finish. Then after completing the two toughest events in high school swimming, Apuron went on to anchor the 200 freestyle relay with Senior Cierra Austin, Senior Nicole Primero, and Junior Jazelle Sanchez to a win in the consolation final to take a 9th place overall and earn

a state qualifying time of 1:58.77. Later in the meet the same group would team up and finish in 7th place in the 400 freestyle relay. Austin finished 13th in the 50 freestyle and 16th in the 100 freestyle in the always close sprint events. Sanchez finished 14th in the 100 butterfly. For the boys to finish well overall, they needed to earn points in nearly every event with multiple swimmers in top 16. This is not an easy task when there are 19 other teams at the meet with the same intentions. Things went well in the preliminary session on Friday, Miner Swimmers advanced to the finals in eight individual events and all three relays. As the events got underway on

Saturday, the Miner Medley Relay team started with a 10th place. The time of 2:06.77 was a season best by the team of Sophomore Taylor Woods, Sophomore Armando Noriega, Senior Colten Smith and Freshman Colbey Stratton. In the next event, the 200 free, Senior John Bribiescas finished 6th with a time of 2:16.03, his best time ever, against a tough field. In the 200 individual medley, Freshman Michael Garcia went on to win the consolation final for 9th place, while Woods went on to finish 8th in the championship final, both swimmers improving their times by a several of seconds. Smith finished 13th in the 50 freestyle with a time of 25.94. After the diving break, Stratton

added to the Miner point tally by finishing 14th in the 100 free, and Bribiescas swam the grueling 500 freestyle to a 5th place finish. The 200 free relay team of Stratton, Bribiescas, Noriega and Smith swam a season’s best to finish 10th. Woods and Garcia had remarkable races in the 100 backstroke to finish 5th

and 11th respectively. In the final event, the 400 free relay, the team of Stratton, Bribiescas, Woods and Smith finished 8th place with a new school record time of 3:58.50 shattering the previous record by 5-seconds. A great finish to the meet and the season. Since only the fastest 32 swimmers in individual

events and fastest 24 relay teams will compete in the state championship meet at Skyline Aquatic Center in Mesa on Nov. 9 and 10, Miner Swimmers will have to wait until seeding is done later this week to determine if they will make the cut. Congratulations to Miner Swimmers for an outstanding season.

Enriqueta Exercise Group at the Elks Club promotes healthy change

By Nina Crowder San Manuel Miner Enriqueta Guevara leads a free exercise group at the Elk’s Club back entrance at 143 8th Ave. in San Manuel every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Enriqueta feels strongly about helping others get healthy with exercise. Enriqueta with Jeanie Woods, Maxine Gillespie and Doris Haynes helped start the group. Enriqueta has been doing this for five years now and Maxine had started this at the senior center about 18 years ago. The Elks Club doesn’t charge for this, but any donations are appreciated for materials. Enriqueta says she is very happy to be doing this. Chuck Cancaid with his wife Jan are avid participants and Chuck holds the record for sit ups. He has to outshine the women. The group ranges between ages 58 and 83, any ages are encouraged to come participate. “When people become ill they think of exercising but never do it, they just give up and it is sad, you are alive and should be able to feel healthy, exercising will help you do that,” Enriqueta said. Enriqueta uses weights because she is worried about the loss of muscle in individuals as

we age. Doris Haynes is a breast cancer survivor. She was informed that people who exercise have a much lower reoccurrence rate. She keeps coming to exercise because she cares about her health. Enriqueta encourages people to try and do what they can, over time they will be able to increase the exercises. If people want to feel better, have more energy and even live longer, look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. The benefits of exercise are there for the taking, regardless of age, sex or physical ability. Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When people are physical they burn calories, the more intense the activity, the more calories they burn. Some of the exercises the group performs are stretches with rubber bands, lifting with small weights, walking, sit ups by sitting in a chair and pulling their legs up, and lunges, to name a few. Feel free to start out slowly and increase with time, participants will soon see and feel the results. Many people in the community are ill or have some

Whether it is diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or other illnesses exercise in time will help. Exercise can help with cancer, depression and arthritis. Exercise can even help stimulate various brain chemicals that can leave people feeling happy and more relaxed. Exercise can also serve as a confidence and self esteem booster.

Enriqueta and the group of people participating at this exercise group were enthusiastic, fun, happy and full of life. All of the participants were encouraging others to attend. The friendships and value of health they have gained is irreplaceable. If you have a chance stop in and see how easy you can change your life with some simple exercise and great attitudes!
