Land exchange tactics hurt Superior, pose environmental risk say Rio Tinto critics By Chase Kamp Copper Area News Rio Tinto, the multinational mining company that owns the Resolution Copper Mine project in Superior, announced on Nov. 30, 2012 that a total of 400 employee and contractor

layoffs would result from a project budget decrease of $150 million. The company said the project’s viability hinges on a federal land exchange bill currently awaiting review in the Senate that would grant the project 2,422 acres of land in the

Oak Flat campground outside of Superior. Critics of the RCM say Rio Tinto is taking a risky regulatory shortcut with the land exchange bill and is subjecting the Superior workforce to industry ups and downs. “Resolution Copper Mine is engaging in the same old

scare tactics to pressure the U.S. Senate to act on bad legislation,” said Terry Rambler, Chairman of the San Carlos Apache Tribe in a written statement. “Resolution Copper made the very same claim in 2007 when its President John Rickus told the Tucson Citizen it would

not invest more money in the project unless the land swap was approved by Congress,” Rambler added. Eleven versions of the land exchange bill have been drafted, the first in 2005 and the most recent in 2011 by then CD-1 Rep. Paul Gosar. Past bills have been thwarted by pushback

Town of Mammoth Public Works update AmeriCorps NCCC By John Hernandez The Town of Mammoth has purchased a new Caterpillar 420 F backhoe loader. The loader was purchased for $104,000 from Empire Caterpillar in Eloy. According to Public Works Director David Garcia, the town saved $35,000 on the purchase price by “piggybacking” on an order from the City of Tucson.

The new loader is more fuelefficient, has an enclosed cab for safety and comfort, comes with a 24” and 18” buckets and has four-wheel drive. Purchase price included operating and maintenance training for staff. Town of Mammoth Public Works employees have been busy doing clean up and maintenance work around town. They have been putting

in sidewalks along the little league field as well as curbing for drainage control. The cemetery has been cleaned up and walkways and railings have been painted. Using recycled paint to save on cost, they have been painting walls and benches around the park areas, little league field, community center and the swimming pool.

Donate! ARIZONA INCOME TAX CREDIT Addressing a need

Today, Sun Life has seven medical centers, three pharmacies, and a dental clinic. Each clinic is an important part of the community it serves. From those humble beginnings, Sun Life has become the largest provider of primary health care services in Pinal County, with 34 providers providing over 100,600 patient visits per year. For over 36 years, Sun Life has delivered care insured, and underserved and uninsured people living in rural Pinal County, many of whom had no access to care. Many of these people had never experienced any health care until they came to Sun Life. Sun Life staff truly care about the people we serve. It has been our legacy since Sun Life started in 1976. Throughout the years, we have continued to believe that all people deserve access to high quality, comprehensive care, regardless of the ability to pay. As health insurance costs rise, the number of employers who do not provide insurance or cover family members increases. Already overcrowded emergency rooms are being asked to meet the growing demand for healthcare…perpetuating the healthcare cost crisis.

Working together to transform lives

In Arizona, taxpayers who itemize have the unique opportunity to CHOOSE to have their tax dollars directly benefit the needs in their communities. By making a gift to Sun Life before December 31st, you can reduce your 2012 income tax liability dollar-for-dollar up to $200.00 for an individual or $400 for a married couple filing together (H 2286). Over 36,000 children, women and men call Sun Life their healthcare home. Your tax credit donation will assure their continued access to affordable healthcare in your community. We hope you will take a stand by choosing to support Sun Life in our efforts to make a difference in your community.

ORACLE, Ariz.—A team of 11 members of the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), an AmeriCorps program, has been stationed at Oracle State Park for five weeks to perform general park maintenance. From Nov. 20 to Dec. 19, 2012 the team of 18 to 24 year olds will be working at the short-staffed park, performing trail clearing and building, forest fire mitigation and firewood collection, ranch house cleaning and a variety of other tasks. “We’re very happy to have the help and youthful energy of the NCCC crew,” said Jennifer Rinio, Park Ranger at Oracle State Park. “They’re honing their handyman skills with a variety of park maintenance projects, as well as getting the opportunity to consider their own roles and talents as future land stewards.” The state park, which serves as a wild life refuge, educational center and recreational area, is open partially throughout the year, so much of their work will be in preparation of its reopening in Feb. The team has a diverse background, comprised of members from all over the United States. Despite their close encounters with coyotes and cacti, and other elements of the Arizona wilderness that are foreign to most of them, the team is enjoying their stay and work at Oracle State Park. “This project has definitely taken many of us out of our comfort zones,” said the NCCC crew’s Team Leader, Casey Bartlett. “Living in tents for weeks on end and being in this environment

has been a growing experience.” AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, residential, national service program in which 1,200 young adults serve nationwide each year. During their 10-month term, Corps Members – all 18 to 24 years old – work on teams of eight to 12 on projects that address critical needs related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. Members work on a series of different projects, typically lasting six to eight weeks each, to mentor students, construct and rehabilitate low-income housing, respond to natural disasters, clean up streams, help communities develop emergency plans, and address countless other local needs. The Southwest Region campus in Denver is one of five regional hubs in the United States and serves eight states in the southwest part of the country. The other campuses are located in Perry Point, Md., Vinton, Iowa, Vicksburg, Miss. and Sacramento, Calif. In exchange for their service, Corps Members receive $5,550 to help pay for college, or to pay back existing student loans. Other benefits include a small living stipend and room and board. AmeriCorps NCCC is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, for more information about AmeriCorps NCCC visit Americorps.gov/NCCC.

Alec Newman tells Knights of Columbus some of the many local Boy Scouts activities.

Knights of Columbus pledge continued support of San Manuel Boy Scouts Troop Local Knights of Columbus voted last Wednesday to continue supporting Boy Scouts of America Troop 822 in San Manuel for their third year. Troop leader Terry Newman and his son Alec told the Knights about the troop’s many activities and awards, including a trip to Tucson missile manufacturer Raytheon which encouraged Scouts to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics. According to Newman, Troop 822 won numerous awards at Camp Raymond last summer, including first place in troop competition.

Scout Alec Newman shared plans for an Eagle Project to install solar water heaters for the San Manuel pool. The project puts Eagle Scout candidates in a position of organizing, leading and supervising local volunteers, adults and other scouts, on a major project. The Scouts and Knights coordinate on projects, including cleaning Highway 77 between mile post 97 and 98. According to Newman there are 10 boys in troop 822 with an expected five or six new members who have expressed an interest in joining. The Knights’ support includes a Cub Scout pack.

Off the Shelf: Local youth add history to San Manuel Library By Chaille McGrew San Manuel Library Chairperson A piece of San Manuel’s history has been refurbished thanks to Ms. Ronning and some of her Advanced Art Class members. In the early 1990’s a local resident, Wally Vogel, painted a silhouette of the Magma/BHP smelter and plant site on the front wall of the San Manuel Library. Of course that silhouette can no longer be seen in reality as the site has been cleared. But thanks to Mr. Vogel’s talent, memories of this important part of our town’s heritage is there to be seen for now and the future. The silhouette was painted in black and after 15-plus years, the desert sun had done a good job of fading the paint. The Library Board was very concerned that the fading would lead to the eventual loss of this historical gem. The Library contacted Ms Ronning of the San Manuel High School Art Department and she and three of her advanced students brought the art work back to its original freshness. The refreshing was done freehanded by the talented students and their teacher. Ms. Ronning has been the San Manuel High School art teacher for three years. Students that participated in this service project were Kimberlee Ostrander, Iris Hill, and Wyatt Fessenden. The Library Board and Staff want to thank this group for preserving part of San Manuel’s past. Don’t forget that library fines can be paid off during December with food donations. One item equals $1in fines. Food items will be donated to the Tri Community Food Bank

Ready to take the plunge? Here’s a cool thing to do on Saturday Are you brave? Think you can handle a little cold water? Then get ready to take the “Plunge.” The Polar Plunge will take place on Saturday, Dec. 15, at 1 p.m. at the San Manuel Pool for those brave enough to get wet. A school fundraiser, the Polar Plunge is open to students and adults. A $20 entry fee will get you a dip in the pool, hot chocolate or coffee and a snack plus the Polar Bear t-shirt. You must get in the water to receive your shirt. If you are under 18 you will need a parent or guardian’s signature. The Polar Plunge is a

fundraiser for the San Manuel High School Class of 2016. Groups of 10 or more are welcome with a chance to raise a percentage of the money raised for the group. These groups could be the swim team, baseball team, etc. You can also designate which school in the Mammoth-San Manuel School District receives your $20 entry fee by checking the appropriate box on the registration form. The event is sponsored by the Mammoth-San Manuel Community Schools and the Class of 2016. You can get a registration form at www.facebook.com/

msmcommunityschools or you can pick one up at Community Schools. They can be turned in at any of the schools. Polar plunges are done annually around the country as fundraisers. Usually they jump into the ocean or a lake but the San Manuel pool should provide a nice chilling bath. Come out and support the event. If you don’t enter come out and watch the daring divers as they take the Polar Plunge. Provide moral support for them. A friendly push may be needed to get them in the cold water. The money goes to a good cause. If

crazy people can dive into a frozen lake in Alaska in February and survive, jumping into the San Manuel pool should be a piece of cake (an ice cream cake, but a cake nonetheless). Be cool to your school and support the Polar Plunge.

Miner Cagers open the season up with tough games By Frank Smith The San Manuel varsity basketball team opened up the season in Tucson at St. Gregory High School in the Boyd Baker Tournament, the Miners faced off against some tough opponents winning two games and losing two. On Nov. 19, the Miners fell to Desert Christian 41 – 53 the top scorers for the Miners were Andres Sierra who scored 20 points and Andy Monfred scored 16 points. The Miners took on Tohono O’Odham on Nov. 20 and came away with the 49 – 12 win with Andy Monfred scoring 17 points and Andres Sierra scoring 14 points. San Manuel dropped the game against ST. Gregory 30 – 42 on Nov. 21, Andres Sierra scored 13points and Andy Monfred scored 12 points. Also on Nov. 21, San Manuel took on Greenfields picking up the win 63 – 56, leading the Miners was Andres Sierra who scored 19 points, Andy Monfred scored 17 points, and Jordan Peasley chipped in with 11

points. Head Coach Ryan Sichting said, “Overall it was a successful tournament. We played some really good competition and we competed. Defensively we played very well in the tournament. On the offensive side of the ball we

struggled at times. We need to find other scorers besides Andy and Andres. In the two games we lost we were winning at the half. So when we play good teams we need to figure out how to play a complete game. Our biggest weakness is definitely experience so this

tournament will help us out down the road.” The Miners hosted Thatcher on Nov. 29, the Miners took the 59 – 16 loss, the leading scorer for the Miners was Andre Sierra with five points. The Miners headed up to

Tucson on Nov. 27 to take on Immaculate Heart, bringing home the 46 – 30 win. The Miners scored 12 points in the first quarter while holding Immaculate Heart to four points, the Mines extended the lead by scoring

Head Coach Dave Jungbluth said, “eadHeaThe Immaculate Heart game was a disappointment losing 3635. We came out flat and they shot the lights out during the first five minutes of the game. We came back to take the lead with less than 40 seconds left in the game. They came down and shot the ball. The Miners grabbed the rebound. I called a timeout with 35 seconds left in the game. After throwing the ball in Immaculate Heart stole the ball, dribbled the length of the court and made a 10 footer to win the game. Our shooting percentage was not good shooting 22 percent hitting 15 out of 68 shots and went 0 for 9 in three point shooting.” The Lady Miners traveled over to Oro Valley on November 28th to match up with the Canyon Del Oro Lady Dorados, coming away with a 49 – 20 loss. San Manuel was outscored 26 – 10 at the half and could not rebound as they fell short again in the second half 20 – 3 to take the loss. Contributing for the ladies was Leticia Reidhead scoring seven points with one rebound, and one assist, Kadi Monfred scored five points with one steal, Alexis Garibay scored four points with two rebounds, Angelica Zuniga scored two points with two rebounds, and Maximilliana Lara scored two points with three rebounds, Analisa Robles pulled down eight

Coach Jungbluth said, “The CDO game was 49-20, they shot the lights out from the three point range and we struggled again shooting 18% for the game.” The Lady Miners then headed up the hill to Globe to take part in the Copper Cities Tournament starting on November 29th with San Manuel facing the Lady Braves from San Carlos in the their first game of the tournament. San Manuel took the 13 point loss 40 – 27, the Lady Miners outscored San Carlos 19 – 18 in the first half but could not keep pace in the second half as the Lady Braves out ran San Manuel 22 – 8 to seal the victory.

Coach Jungbluth said, “In the Globe Tournament, we were leading San Carlos after the first half but came out flat during the second half. Against Cholla High school, it was close but came out 1 of 18 in the second half. In

the Cibecue game, the girls played better but not good enough to win, again shooting percentage was low. Miami was 3-0 when they played us, we started strong and played a good first half, in the second half we played poorly until the last four minutes of the game. Against Morenci, who was by far the best team in the 14 team tournament beat us easily with their pressure 52 – 21.” The Lady Miners will host Thatcher today with the JV playing at 5pm and the varsity will take the court at 6:30pm.

Miners Continued from Page 11 points with one rebound, and Richard Romo scored one point with one rebound. Coach Sichting said, “In the Immaculate Heart game, we played a very good first half. We were winning 34 to 12 at half. I really liked that we had more balanced scoring. That’s what we need this year in order to be successful. As a team we did a very good job rebounding. We had 20 defensive rebounds and 8 offensive rebounds. San Manuel took the trip over to Oro Valley to take on the Canyon Del Oro Dorados on Nov.28 with the Miners taking the 57 – 23 loss. The Miners were outscored in the first quarter 15 – 8, losing the second quarter 16 – 5 to fall behind at the half 31 – 13. In the third quarter, the Miners continued to fall behind getting outscored 26 – 10 in the third to take the loss. Leading the Miners was Andre Sierra with 14 points, two rebounds, and one steal, Andres Moreno scored three points with one rebound, Demetrious Dietz scored two points with one steal, Richard Romo scored two points with one rebound, and one steal, and Jordan Peasley scored two points with one rebound. Coach Sichting said, “In the CDO and Thatcher games, both of these teams are very good. CDO will compete in Division 2 this year and Thatcher last year was State Runner UP for Division 3. I like playing good teams like this early because you see what you need to improve on. We need to take better shots offensively and cut down on turnovers. Even though the scores of these two games were lopsided, I was really impressed with how hard our team played.” The Miners will host Greenfields on Friday with the varsity team playing at 7 p.m.
