Stealing toys from children? Shame It is a very sad commentary on what is happening to San Manuel when someone steals a box of toys meant for the needy in the Tri Community. The San Manuel Historical Society and Thrift Store put out boxes to collect toys for needy families. When I went to collect the toys the box was gone. The next day it was there

empty. When I spoke to the manager, he said someone came in and took it. All I can say is, if your need was so great that you had to steal them, then you are welcome to them. But you could have done it the honest way and put in a request. Shame, shame on you. /s/ Janice Rapp Thrift Store Manager

Medical marijuana dispensary in Pinal County under review By Mila Besich-Lira The Pinal County Planning and Zoning commission will have a hearing on Jan. 17, 2013 to approve or deny a request to open Pinal County’s first medical marijuana facility in Duddleyville. The application was submitted by Paul Shaub, Dr. Glenn Wilt and Gregory

Rowles. The three member board plans on opening the Pinal County Wellness Center to distribute marijuana to authorized prescription users. The dispensary will be located on property owned by Dr. Wilt across Valentine Road from the Minit Mart on Highway 77. Wilt owns dozens of properties

throughout the Copper Corridor. According to the submitted application, there are 73 medical marijuana authorization cards in the Community Health Action Area (CHAA) #94 as of August 13, 2012. The CHAA area will serve Dudleyville, San Manuel, Oracle as well as other surrounding communities. According to the medical marijuana law, a prescription holder can grow their own marijuana under certain requirements. If the facility should open card holders in CHAA #94 will not be allowed to grow their own marijuana. If the application is recommended for approval by the commission, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors

will have final approval on the application. If the Board approves, the Planning and Zoning department will then complete an administrative site review to ensure that the building requirements, such as parking, are met. The Arizona Department of Health Services will review, authorize and monitor the

medical marijuana dispensary permitting once the business location is set. For more information or see a copy of the permit application you can review it online at: http:// www.pinalcountyaz. gov/Departments/ PlanningDevelopment/Lists/ NOHPZ/Attachments/117/ SUP01012.pdf

Resolution Copper Land Exchange dies in the Senate

By Mila Besich-Lira Resolution Copper officials held out hope that the 2012 Congress would pass H.R.1904, the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act, in the lame duck session of Congress, but to no avail.

Company officials have said the land exchange is critical to the future development of the mine. Without the exchange, Resolution will not be able to open the mine. It is expected the company will review their strategy for

future legislation. Rio Tinto, the Britishbased multinational company that owns Resolution, announced large layoffs earlier this month that were due in part to political uncertainty and the numerous failed attempts at passing

the exchange. Arizona Senators John McCain and Jon Kyle both worked to get the bill approved. In the days before Christmas, attempts to attach the bill to other legislation or pass it on its own failed.

Oracle animal shelter founder passes away, shelter seeks volunteers, fosters By John Hernandez Charlotte Miera, the founder of local animal rescue group At Risk Rescue, unexpectedly passed away late last month and her friends are asking for help to keep her shelter operational. “I loved her to pieces” said friend Cher Heath,

who said Miera was an amazing animal lover and advocate. “She will be missed.” Miera founded At Risk Rescue in 2011 and under her leadership more than 1,000 cats and dogs were spayed or neutered in less than a year. Heath said that Charlotte cared so much

for the animals that she paid for 90 percent of the

food for the foster pets out of her own pocket.

“She would make sure they had medication if

needed and paid for vet visits,” Heath added. “She was also instrumental in getting dogs placed in foster homes and adopted. She instilled a strong sense of responsibility for animals that no one else could.” To carry on her dream, the founding members and volunteers of this animal rescue group will re-organize under a new name, Charlotte’s Way Rescue. Friends said the name a play on how Miera was known to be pushy, but always got things done. A memorial service is planned in Oracle for Charlotte next year with details forthcoming. In lieu of flowers, donations will be accepted in her name for Charlotte’s Way Rescue. At Risk/Charlotte’s Way Rescue is in need of volunteers to help with exercising and feeding dogs, transportation to vets, cleaning their pens and completing paperwork. They also need help in organizing and working at fundraisers. The organization can also use donations and foster families to take care of animals until they can be adopted. The Rescue will provide food for fostered pets. For more information on how to help, contact Cher at (520) 705-5425 or Laura at (520) 405-6484 or (520) 896-2405. Donations can be dropped off at Hot Dogs & Cool Cats grooming service, Monday through Thursday on American Avenue in Oracle.
