Suspects charged in ‘toolbox murder’ Pinal County Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives have charged two men in the killing of an unknown
man and two others with concealing his body inside a toolbox and burying it in the area of the East
Florence Kelvin Highway and Highway 177 near Kearny. According to PCSO, on Jan. 16, 2011, at 11:42 a.m. a hunter discovered the toolbox containing the victim’s body. The hunter immediately contacted PCSO and homicide detectives began the investigation. The “Delta” toolbox was partially buried in the ground. Inside of the toolbox, detectives located the decomposing body of an adult male. The male was middle aged and the body had obvious signs of trauma. The body was taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy. The manner of death was ruled as a homicide by the Medical Examiner’s Office. Last week, detectives charged Paul Goga, 33, Tempe, and Gilbert Evora, 30, Mesa, with first degree murder. They also charged Javier Santos, 34, Apache Junction, and Joshua

McGuire, 31, Kearny, with first degree hindering and abandonment or concealment of a dead body. According to PCSO Public Information Officer Tim Gaffney, homicide detectives followed up
on every lead which they received related to this case. The investigation, he said, revealed the motive in the case was apparently related to a drug debt. Allegedly, Goga and Evora devised a plan to kill the victim. Detectives said
Goga drove the victim to a residence in the 200 block of Hartford Street in Kearny where Evora was waiting inside with a baseball bat. Once inside, the victim was allegedly beaten with the bat by Toolbox, Page 12

Dionne charged with murder of Winkelman man FLORENCE, Ariz. – A San Manuel man has been charged in the shooting death of Nicolas Angelo Lagunas. According to Tim Gaffney, Public Information Officer of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, a 911 call was received on Sat., Oct. 27, 2012, at 9:09 p.m. from a resident in the 300 block of E. Fifth St., San Manuel. The caller reported that an unknown male individual was banging on their front door yelling for the homeowner to call 911. Deputies arrived at the residence within minutes of the call being dispatched and, upon their arrival, they found Nicholas Angelo Lagunas, 30,
Winkelman, lying on the ground outside of the residence. Lagunas was unconscious and bleeding from a gunshot wound to the chest. Despite the efforts by deputies and medical personnel, he was pronounced deceased at the scene. PCSO Homicide Detectives responded to the scene and began conducting an investigation. During the course of the investigation, it was determined Lagunas had allegedly been shot by Stephen Paul Dionne, 29, San Manuel. According to Gaffney, detectives discovered that the two men had been involved in a verbal
altercation at the home Dionne lived at in the 200 block of E. Fifth Street, San Manuel. During the altercation, detectives said Dionne shot Lagunas in the chest. After being shot, Lagunas ran down the street to a house and began banging on the door yelling for help. Lagunas died at the scene as a result of the gunshot wound he received. Following the shooting, Dionne fled the scene and went into hiding. On Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012, homicide detectives with the assistance of the U.S. Marshal’s Office were able to locate Dionne at a residence in Tucson near the intersection of Grant and Country Club.
Dionne was taken into custody and booked in the Pima County Jail for an outstanding felony probation violation warrant. On Friday, Nov. 2, detectives filed charges of first degree murder.

Of all the cotton-picking times to ... learn about cotton? Cotton, proudly displayed on the State emblem as one of the Five C’s of Arizona (Copper, Cattle, Cotton, Citrus and Climate), became a cash crop for Arizona farmers in the 1910’s, when Supima cotton was born upon a field on the Gila River Reservation. It became the plant that makes Ralph Lauren’s cotton goods worthy of his name. Over time, Supima cotton became

less important to Arizona economy, as prices fluctuated, but, it is still grown in Arizona and across the American Southwest and is widely recognized as one of the finest cottons the world has ever known. Cotton still remains an important part of Arizona industry, and it’s no wonder when this plant is so versatile. It is used in fuel, fertilizer, paper, cardboard, margarine and shortening, as well as clothing and other household textiles. Arizona cotton is primarily grown in the Copper Corridor, most especially in Pinal County
and is the main crop grown in the Gila River Valley. Over the past hundred years, the cotton industry has seen remarkable advances in technology, mostly due to the Arizona Cotton Ginners Association, which has led the advance of progress both in Arizona and nationwide. One advance is the Phytogen brand cotton seeds, the most widely planted cotton seeds in the U.S, known for their quality, performance, vigor and yield. Phytogen is engineered to better resist pests, disease and even
drought conditions, yet, is comparable to the other high quality cottons. During the recession, the future of Arizona cotton was threatened as farmers were forced to switch to more lucrative crops or even to sell their fields for development. With less production in other top cotton-producing countries, prices are higher and more farmers are growing cotton again. For most areas of Arizona, the cotton fields are in early bloom in June. In Western Arizona, peak bloom is often met by the end of June, the month
commonly referred to as “prime time” for Arizona cotton production. The majority of the harvest begins in Oct. and right now in the Copper Corridor the cotton is high. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, cotton prices are up for the fifth year in a row. Arizona farmers have planted 188,000 acres of cotton, mostly of the upland variety, to be sold at prices of more than 80 cents per pound. In 2008, cotton’s lowest production year, the crops still generated $165 million dollars in cash that
directly affected Arizona economy, and that does not factor in any advantage to the economy but the actual amount garnered from crop sales. This is great news for the farmers and great news for those who hope for a better economy all around. Now, go forth and buy sweatpants. Make sure the cotton they are made from was bought from Arizona, and sit back in comfort, on your day off, content in your comfort as well as with the knowledge that you helped your friends and neighbors in the cotton industry.

By Mila Besich-Lira Yesterday evening, KVOA, the NBC affiliate from Tucson, reported that the Arizona Department of Safety (DPS) had recovered $2,000,000.00 of copper that was stolen from the ASARCO mine in Hayden. The initial discovery of the stolen copper was found on Sept. 27 at a ranch near Tangerine Road in Marana. The report explained that at least 12 people could be indicted in this case and
will be facing up to 40 counts. The DPS investigation led them to Upland California and to a scrap metal dealer who has connections to a Chinese broker. The Arizona copper was put into sea containers and began its journey to China on the ship “Franesca.” Jim Oien is the DPS officer who has been investigating this crime, in his interview with KVOA Oien said two weeks ago,
the “Francesca” was loaded with three containers of stolen copper. It sailed to Hong Kong where Customs and Border Protection agents managed to get the ship returned with the containers. In total 500 830-pound anodes of copper were recovered in the ship. “The Arizona copper that was mined in Arizona by Arizona workers ends up in the hands of the Chinese, and it’s stolen,” explained
Oien. ASARCO originally suspected the copper thefts and began an internal investigation prior to alerting the authorities. The company has been working with law enforcement and there is a $50,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction. If you have information you are urged to call 88-CRIME or 9-1-1. Copper Area News will release more details as they become available.

Blazers finish off Baja softball season with two wins The Blazers traveled to Oro Valley to face the third ranked Dare Devils. In the first game of the day, the Blazers jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first at bat and never relinquished the lead. The Blazers defense did not allow a run until the fifth inning when a runner scored on a throwing error. In the sixth
and final inning, the Blazers added six runs to bring the final score to 12-1 in favor of the Blazers. Starting on the mound Daniella Hinojos (6K/3W/1ER) and relieving Nikki Baldenegro (3K/3W/0ER) combined for the win. Offensively the team was led by Nikki Baldenegro (3-4), Julie Meza
(3-4), Deseray Godoy (3-4), Samantha Bejarta (2-4) and Destiny Gonzalez (2-4). In the second game of the afternoon, the Blazers started off slow and the Dare Devils started off strong scoring four runs in the first inning. The Blazers woke up the bats in the second inning tying up the score at four apiece.
What does college, career ready mean? College today means a lot more than just pursuing a four-year degree at a university. Being “college ready” means being prepared for any postsecondary experience, including study at two-year and four-year institutions leading to a postsecondary credential (i.e. a certificate, license, Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree). In today’s economy, a career is not just a job. A career provides a family-sustaining wage and pathways to advancement. According to the Center on Education and the Workforce about 40 years ago, 72 percent of US jobs were held by individuals with a high school degree or less. By 2018, only 38 percent of jobs will be available to individuals without some education and
training after high school. According to the Brookings Institution nearly one-half of all job openings in the United States will be in “middle skill” jobs, all of which require at least some postsecondary education and training. By contrast, those with a high school diploma or less are eligible only for the onefifth of all job openings that are deemed “low skill.” CVIT, with its Central Programs, offers career readiness training to students while still in high school. Superior, Globe, Miami, San Carlos and Hayden/ Winkelman students take advantage of free college classes that leads to community college and/or industry certifications. “With a wide range of program offerings we
hope not only to reach the interest of students in our communities, but also meet industry needs” says Pete Guzman, CVIT Superintendent. Courses include Medical Assistant, Certified Nursing Assistant, Fire Science, Electrical and Instrumentation Technology, Welding, and Cosmetology programs are provided in cooperation with Gila Community College. Pre-Engineering Geology program is provided in cooperation with Central Arizona College, Arizona State University and Resolution Copper. For more information about how high school students can take advantage of these programs in the 2013/2014 school year contact Beata Tarasiuk, CVIT Coordinator/ Recruiter, at 928.425.9654.

Baldenegro (2K/1W/3ER) started and Daniella Hinojos (4K/4W/0ER) relieved this game. Offensively the Blazers were led by Deseray Godoy (2-3), Samantha Bejarta (23), Destiny Gonzalez (2-3) and Daniella Hinojos (2-4, 2

Pastor’s Corner By Joe Palmer Pastor, Fellowship Baptist Church I’ve said goodbye to several people lately. These people were on the verge of making a journey to a wonderful place, and I told them that I would see them later. They were going to Heaven. Sometimes people might wonder if I’m not just consoling others with platitudes about a mythical place. “Does Heaven exist, and will I be going
there?” This is the question you have asked yourself, and if you are not cynical you still ask it. The cover story for the Newsweek magazine on October 8 was “Heaven Is Real: A Doctor’s Experience With the Afterlife.” According to the article, a neurosurgeon by the name of Eben Alexander went into a coma for seven days and experienced heaven. He describes some of what he experienced this way, “Higher than the clouds—immeasurably

Goga, Evora, Santos and McGuire are currently in custody. Homicide detectives are still working to try and determine the identity of the victim. “Homicide detectives never gave up on this case and were determined to find out who committed this gruesome murder,” said Sheriff Paul Babeu. “Our detectives started with only physical evidence on this case and after continuously working it four people are in custody and will remain there for years to come.”

Detectives said at this point Santos and McGuire agreed to take the toolbox which contained the body to the remote desert area near Kearny and bury it. It is estimated the victim was murdered and buried sometime between March and November of 2009.

– Heaven is Real higher—flocks of transparent, shimmering beings arced across the sky, leaving long, streamer-like lines behind them. … Birds? Angels? These words registered later, when I was writing down my recollections. But neither of these words do justice to the beings themselves, which were quite simply different from anything I have known on this planet. They were more advanced.
When recorded return to: Clerk, Pinal County Board of Supervisors P.O. Box 827 Florence, AZ 85132 ORDINANCE NO. PZ-C-003-12 AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF PINAL COUNTY, ARIZONA, RELATING TO ZONING AND AMENDING THE PINAL COUNTY DEVELOPMENT SERVICES CODE, TITLE 2 (COUNTY ZONING ORDINANCE), CHAPTER 2.185 “0UTSIDE STORAGE AND PARKING;” CHAPTER 2.105 “CI-1 LIGHT INDUSTRY AND WAREHOUSE ZONE;” CHAPTER 2.325 “C-3 “GENERAL COMMERCIAL ZONING DISTRICT;” CHAPTER 2.330 “I-1 INDUSTRIAL BUFFER ZONING DISTRICT;” CHAPTER 2.335 “I-2 LIGHT INDUSTRIAL AND WAREHOUSE ZONING DISTRICT;” AND CHAPTER 2.340 “I-3 INDUSTRIAL ZONING DISTRICT” WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors on February 10, 2010, approved the codification of all Development Services ordinances, and the codification as the Pinal County Development Services Code became effective on March 13, 2010; WHEREAS, Ordinance No. 61862, as amended, is the Pinal County Zoning Ordinance as codified in Title 2 of the Pinal County Development Services Code; and WHEREAS, it is in the best interest of the public to amend chapters 2.185, 2.105, 2.325, 2.330, 2.335 and 2.340 of the county zoning ordinance in the Pinal County Development Services Code to meet current needs.

it. The sound was palpable and almost material, like a rain that you can feel on your skin but doesn’t get you wet.” If you want to read more, Dr. Alexander has written a book entitled Proof of Heaven. I may buy the book, but I don’t need to. I know that heaven is real because I have spoken with people who have seen it for themselves. I know it is real because I know beyond a shadow
of doubt that God is real and that His Word is true. So it has been with joy and not remorse that I have said, “Goodbye, I’ll see you later” to many good friends. If you would like to talk with me (Pastor Joe Palmer of Fellowship Baptist) about it, email me at joeandsuzypal@yahoo. com.

The purpose of this election is for the continued use of the alternative expenditure limitation. Pursuant to A.R.S. 41-563.01, the Town Council of HAYDEN voted to approve the proposed alternative expenditure limitation – home rule option at its special meeting on OCTOBER 15, 2012. The vote for approval was 6 For and 0 Against. At the primary election to be held on MARCH 12, 2013, the voters of the Town of HAYDEN will vote on the question of an alternative expenditure limitation -home rule option.
