Letter to the Editor: Hosea running for mayor Editor, Copper Basin News: You might remember me: I am James Hosea. I started petitions and fought against the property tax increase last year. Beginning last June, I submitted several information requests to the Town Manager for financial information and other information about operational expenses of Kearny. These information requests included the salary amounts of the Town Manager and other of our highest paid positions. The Town Manager resigned without ever disclosing any of this information. Here it is, 2012, and I have decided to run for Mayor. I have decided that just to sit and complain is not the answer. We, the taxpayers of Kearny, need change. If you will vote me in, I will do everything I can to create transparency in city government. The taxpayers will not have to guess the salaries of the Town Manager. I do not believe in rubber-stamping change orders on contracts; I do believe in holding contractors to the prices they bid. I believe in an open-door question and answer policy. I am firmly against tax increases. I believe we need to work hard to balance the budget and live within our means by staying within the budget and not increasing the burden on our citizens.

I do not see the need to spend money on useless, pretty parks like Rail and Copper Park, when our city park, the one that is supposed to be for our children, is falling apart, with damaged, unsafe equipment, such as missing slides 15 feet in the air, with plywood blocking the hole. Instead of saying why the lake can’t be fixed, we need to ask “How do we fix the lake?” I am one person and I know, alone, I cannot change the world; but I can be your voice in city government. I do believe that, as a taxpaying citizen, you have the right to be heard. I believe that, if we vote for something, then, the majority has spoken and the few in the positions of power should not have the right to pass legislation blocking what the majority has asked for by using the right to vote. I firmly believe that all future Town Managers should be required to live in Kearny, along with their families. If they have no vested interest in Kearny, how can they effectively manage Kearny? If you would like to have one of my yard signs, to remind people to vote for me, please call me at 520-7051332. Yes, that’s my real phone number. Feel free to call me for a sign or to ask me questions. I am looking forward to serving you. /s/ James W. Hosea

Department of Justice accepts County Redistricting Plan ByMila Lira After years of planning and drawing, several public meetings and reviewed by the Pinal County Supervisors the new five supervisor district boundaries are official. The county announced last week that they have received official approval from the Department of Justice to accept the district boundaries. The 2010 Census found that Pinal County’s population is at 375,770. By law, Pinal County was required to add two new supervisors once it passed the population threshold set in statute, as determined by the official US Census Bureau data. The new officials will run for election in the November 2012 election and will take their oaths of office in January 2013. “After all the time and effort that we put into this process by reaching

out to the public, I am not surprised that our redistricting maps were so quickly pre-cleared by the US Justice Department,” said Pinal County Board of Supervisors’ Chairman Pete Rios. “I thank our Elections Department staff for all their hard work.” The Copper Corridor Communities (Aravaipa, Superior, Kearny, Mammoth, San Manuel, Oracle, and Mammoth) all remain in Supervisor District 1, along with the other district one community precincts of Coolidge (Northeast, Northwest and South), Eloy, Randolph, and Cactus Forest. Added to the district are the north and south precincts of Florence. Due to the redistricting, SaddleBrooke East and West are both moving from District 1 and into the newly formed District 4. The SaddleBrooke

precincts will join the Town of Maricopa, Red Rock and Arizona City. To review the population break outs for each precinct/district visit the county website at: http:// The Maricopa Monitor announced last week that former Kearny

resident Cheryl Chase has announced that she will be running for Pinal County District 2 Supervisor. The position is currently held by Bryan Martyn. Martyn announced recently that he will not seek re-election. Chase has been employed by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) as

the director of community relations office for the past three years under Sheriff Babeu. Chase represented the Copper Corridor in the Arizona Legislature as a representative for District 23. District Two includes most of the unincorporated community of San Tan and parts of Apache Junction.

Now that the boundaries have been drawn candidates wishing to run for County Supervisor may pick up election packets from the Pinal County Elections Department. You can visit the County elections department website at: http://1.usa. gov/z1cz7B.

FLORENCE, AZ – Continuing to demonstrate its commitment to transparency in government, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors along with the Planning & Development department announce an interactive webbased source for planning and development information. “Pinal County gets a lot of calls from people who want to know more about projects in their community, particularly

if they’ve received or read a legal notice about a pending case,” said Arline Studley, Records Manager for Pinal County Planning & Development. “We provide substantially more information than is required by law. People appreciate that, especially when they’re trying to find out about a project near their home or office,” said Ms. Studley added. “The

public can now view exactly the same information that members of the Planning & Zoning Commission and Board of Supervisors review before making a decision on a case.” Pinal County’s Planning & Zoning Commission is made up of citizen volunteers who evaluate proposed projects and make recommendations. The Commission can recommend approval, denial

or stipulate approval if certain conditions are met. The recommendation then goes to the Board of Supervisors for a final decision. The starting point to access this information is the Planning & Development home page at http:// www.pinalcountyaz. gov/Departments/ PlanningDevelopment/Pages/ Home.aspx. See Map, Page 13

Are you ready for a healthier life? Weight loss not only improves your quality of life, but also prevents or lowers your risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, back and joint pain. You’ve probably tried to lose weight before, but gained it back. Studies have shown that patients on traditional weight loss programs lose weight, but often regain two-thirds of it within one year and almost all of it within five years. The LAP-BAND® System is an adjustable band that is placed around the top of your stomach laparoscopically (using a video camera and small incisions), reducing the stomach capacity and creating an earlier feeling of fullness. It is an effective and reversible surgical method for weight loss. It’s safer and less invasive than gastric bypass, as there is no stomach cutting or stapling. Dr. Werner Andrade is now offering this procedure at Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center.

CVRMC CEO named to the AZ Hospital and Healthcare Association Board of Directors Neal Jensen, Chief Executive Officer of Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center has accepted the honor of representing rural hospitals on the Board of Directors of the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association (AzHHA). “This board is a wellrespected group of healthcare executives, physicians, and community leaders and it’s a great opportunity for me to network and learn from people who have

excelled professionally. I’m excited and honored to be part of the board,” Jensen speaks of his recent appointment. The AzHHA is a statewide trade association representing more than 100 hospitals, healthcare systems, affiliated health organizations, and the patients and communities they serve. With a mission of sustaining and improving the health of Arizonans, AzHHA supports its members by providing advocacy,

education and services. Jensen served as the Chief Financial Officer for CVRMC for 10 years before being promoted to CEO in 2008, a time when the economy began to turn. “Many hospitals are cutting services, our position is to bring new services to the people we serve. Our equipment and people are top of the line,” Jensen speaks about his strategies to withstand the economic recession and changes

in healthcare. “We are providing more education and training than ever before. Customer service, quality, and growth are the focus of CVRMC as we continue our work to provide excellent care for our patients and their families.” Rural hospitals see a wider variety of patient cases and the experience for the staff is much greater. Rural hospitals face legislative and economic changes with more impact than urban

hospitals. “Rural healthcare compared to urban healthcare is like night and day,” Jensen states. “Anything that happens to the healthcare industry is magnified at rural hospitals. We are very sensitive to community healthcare changes. If we lose a couple of doctors, it could be crippling. I am pleased to be adding another voice for rural hospitals on the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association.”

Georgie Digs ... By Georgie Wood (ggannwood@yahoo. com) In 1923, Mrs. J.M. “Abbie” Keith had become Secretary of the Arizona Cattle Growers Association (ACGA) which had been organized in 1904, and when my husband-tobe, Clifford Wood of Aravaipa Creek, was in the U.S. Army helping to train recruits in Oregon in the early 1940’s,

Kearny Elks has state hoop shoot champ The state of Arizona will be represented in Las Vegas, Nevada by Alex Bravo, who shot 22 out of 25 baskets to win the 8 and 9 year old boys division at the Arizona Elks State Hoop Shoot Contest on Saturday. Alex will compete against the winners in his same age group from Utah, California/Hawaii and Nevada on Saturday, February 25. Kearny also had two third place winners, Liana Goad and Kenny Palmer.

Abbie Keith entered in a ACGA newsletter the following from a letter written by Cliff: “Figured I’d drop you a few lines from down here in Oregon. I’ve been here about nine months so I feel like a native, but I wouldn’t trade good old Arizona for the whole state, although the part I’ve been in looks like a cowman’s paradise; the grass is belt high

everywhere and plenty of water. There must be something wrong though for I’ve seen only about ten head of cows and they are all milk cows. I’m getting along fine in the Army except they walk a fellow too much. Sometimes I’d give all I own for a good horse, but if it takes walking to win this war, I’m all for it. My mother sends me the newsletters and I sure have enjoyed them for

they keep me well up on Arizona news. Sure hope the dry spell breaks soon and you all get plenty of rain for we sure need plenty of good fat beef. Hope the association continues to prosper.” In 1945, Abbie Keith established the “Arizona Cattlelog”, the very interesting official publication of the ACGA, and Richard G. Schaus was a photographer and writer

for the Arizona Cattlelog before becoming editor of the magazine after Abbie Keith’s retirement as editor in 1962. There are many photos in the Richard Schaus Ranching Collection of The Arizona Memory Project at the Arizona Historical Foundation, and they can be found online by searching “Arizona Cattlelog”. In my possession are the December 1958, the September 1969, and the May 1970 issues of the Arizona Cattlelog that included Richard G. Schaus’ short stories about my husband’s dad, Martin Wood; Guadalupe “Lupe” Salazar of the Klondyke area; and George Upshaw who had settled on Deer Creek southeast of Winkelman. The histories of those

men and their families are so interesting, and the times when and after they became settled in their own ranching areas were so different than the present times. Despite the fact that they did not have the conveniences we now have, I believe that in some ways their times might have been much simpler. Now days, we have to remember so many numbers! Red Skelton said, “There are three signs of old age; loss of memory - I forget the other two.”

Good Shepherd offers Lenten beginnings Two events, one fun and informal and the other solemn and contemplative, are Lenten gifts from Church of the Good Shepherd in Kearny to the people of the Copper Basin. Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper will take place in Ray Hall of Church of the Good Shepherd. Pancakes, sausage, and beverages will be served. Tickets (at $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under – and children three and under are free) are available from church members and will also be on sale at the door on the night of the dinner. The next day, February 22, is the solemn day of Ash Wednesday for all Christians, marking the first day of the season of Lent. A simple bread and soup dinner will be served in Ray Hall at 6 p.m. and,

at 7 p.m., everyone will enter the church building for the service of Holy Eucharist with the solemn imposition of ashes. The meal is free to the public and, of course, so is the service of worship. The serving of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday is an old English and European tradition. In medieval times, leading to the present day, the people have a final rich meal anticipating the fasting days of Lent. The purpose hundreds of years ago was to use up all the fatty and rich foods in order to do away with temptation. The Ash Wednesday service, of course, has older and deeper roots. It marks the first day of considering human mortality in relation to Jesus’ gift of salvation. The placing of a cross formed from ashes is a sign of humanity as well as the promise of Easter.

ASARCO Centennial: Part 3 By Rosalind Padilla If you attended the Best Fest at the State Capitol this past weekend you would have seen the ASARCO booth as the company helped Arizona celebrate its 100th anniversary as well as the 100th anniversary of operating their own smelter in Hayden. Mark your calendar and join ASARCO at the Hayden Golf Course Park Saturday, Feb. 25, at noon with food and fun for all ages. Look for the complete schedule next week. From any direction you are traveling to Hayden you will see the ASARCO smokestack. In the 1960s there were four smoke stacks in the area, two at San Manuel (demolished in 2007), the Kennecott stack and AS&R both in Hayden, each emitting sulfur smoke up and down the valley in which we live. There was a saying, “The smoke was a welcome sight and smell,” because it meant the employees were working. Strikes and shutdowns were hard on the economy in the Copper Corridor and other regions because copper is needed in so many daily uses and activities The mine, crusher and

concentrator are easy to describe in lay persons terms but there are so many stages that go into the smelting of copper. Have you ever looked at a chunk of native copper and wondered how it got that way. The conditions had to be just right with the earth’s internal temperature and the correct minerals present to get this natural substance in all shapes and shades of the color we call copper. The Ray mine has a crusher, electro wining plant, concentrator, silicate leaching plant and acid plant all necessary to the smelting process. From the mine, products are sent by Copper Basin Railway to the crusher and some products are sent directly to the concentrator and smelter to start the smelting process. In 1854 or earlier, copper ore was sent all the way to Wales for smelting. Prospecting for gold or silver was the main interest with copper deposits pushed aside. It was the evolution of electricity, telegraph, telephone and railroad that brought copper production to Arizona. ASARCO, a pioneer in the smelting and refining industry, began construction of the Hayden copper smelter in 1911 and in 1912 the first copper

from the plant was poured. Since then there have been many revisions not only to the smelter plant but to the process of smelting and refining. The process of smelting involves many chemicals, correct temperatures, correct timing etc, therefore consider these words associated with smelting which are Roasters, reverberatory furnaces, convertors, anode furnaces and casting and acid plant. The facilities also include maintenance and repair shops, and a steam power plant utilizing waste heat from reverberatory furnaces to supply some of the plants electricity. As you have been on the highway you have seen flat bed trucks carrying large rectangles of copper which are 99.6 percent pure copper. These are copper anodes heading to the ASARCO refinery in Amarillo, Texas and each anode weighs approximately 720 pounds. Daily, the remnants or waste of this copper smelting process rise to the top of the mixture, is skimmed off the top and poured into 60 ton slag haulers. In the day light you might see smoke but at night you see the brilliance of slag being

FLORENCE – Much needed help has arrived in the days following two backto-back animal hoarding investigations. Pinal County Animal Care & Control responded to two hoarding cases involving 158 dogs, cats and birds during the first week of February. PetSmart Charities is providing $15,500 in grant funding through its Emergency Relief program. The dogs from the first hoarding cases will benefit from $9,500 to assist with medical expenses. Another $6,000 will be used to cover medical expenses for the

cats. PetSmart Charities has also provided much needed supplies including: • Plastic kennels, cat carriers and wire crates • Pet beds • Dog and cat food • Kong toys • Cat litter and pans • Food and water bowls The first case involved 93 dogs and two adults living in squalid conditions with no running water or electricity. The animals’ owner admitted that they were overwhelmed and voluntarily surrendered the animals. The property was declared uninhabitable and the home’s renters

were forced to find other accommodations. County Environmental Health and Building Safety departments were involved in the assessment. The landlord was unaware of the extent of the problem. Two days later, one dog and 59 living cats were pulled from a house that also contained carcasses of nine dead cats. Two adults were living in the home, which investigators described as “living in a locked litter box that was never cleaned in four years.” After an altercation with Pinal County Sheriff’s deputies, the male

The Arizona State Capitol dome, cast in copper, can be seen peeping above the building. poured at the slag dump readily visible from Highway 77 just beyond Hayden High School. The original smoke stack was the size of the Kennecott stack that is still standing in Hayden. The taller smoke stack was originally built to simply disperse the sulfur dioxide gas higher into the atmosphere. It was their first method of air pollution control. More extensive controls are now used to remove sulfur dioxide and making it into

sulfuric acid which is a valuable byproduct for the industry. Watching the smoke stack being built was a daily, awesome experience. There was construction inside simultaneously while additional work was visible on the outside. Scaffolds rose higher each day surrounding the perimeter of the stack thankfully with a safety net below the scaffolds. At recess the students and teachers at the Hayden Primary School (now

Verdugo Hall) would watch the stack rise. I am aware of only one worker falling off the scaffold into the safety net. He was not injured but was incontinent in the fall; just ask those who rescued him. I look at the smoke stack often and find it an amazing structure but the whole process from the mine to the making of the anodes is a complex process we all take for granted, especially when we turn on a light or look at the dome of the State Capitol.

PetSmart Charities, rescues and others rally to help after hoarding cases occupant was arrested. They were not allowed to live in the property after it was inspected by Environmental Health and Building Safety. Here is an update on the status of the animals: • Each dog and cat has been checked by a vet. Blood work was done on some of the animals. • Most of the female dogs are pregnant – about 10 in all. • None of the cats are believed to be pregnant, likely due to infection and poor physical condition. • None of the animals in either case were spayed or neutered, based on physical

examinations. • Many of the cats have upper respiratory infections and some of the blood work has come back positive for feline leukemia. • All of the dogs received a combo vaccine and bordatella (kennel cough) preventative. • Dogs and cats exhibiting signs of respiratory infection are being treated with antibiotics. • All blood testing needs to come back before spay/ neuter surgeries can be scheduled. Animals that are recovering from infections will not receive surgery until

they are restored to good health. At the recommendation of the veterinarian one cat was euthanized due to an acute respiratory infection as well as possible hip displacement with infection. One dog was euthanized due to seizures, malnourishment, weakness, possible Valley Fever and a severe respiratory infection. “The animals were barely clinging to life and the chance for any meaningful recovery was slim,” Kaye Dickson, Animal Care & Control Director explained. “Fortunately, a vet has See Donations, Page 13

Volunteers spend Saturday cleaning up Kearny

All ages helped during the Great Kearny Clean-Up including this little guy.

Kearny got a sprucing up last Saturday thanks to the efforts of many. Twenty-six volunteers spread out around the town to collect trash and other discarded items. The group was joined by 18 other volunteers from the Church of the Good Shepherd who cleaned up their mile of highway.

Lobo basketball season ends with losses to San Carlos By Nolberto Waddell The Lobo basketball season came to an end on Friday, Feb. 3, for both the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team with losses to the San Carlos Braves teams. With three scheduled home games in that final week the Lobo teams still had a small chance for the A.I.A. sectional tournament but they had to

win all the games and that did not happen. The Lobos took on the Vandals from Miami High School on Tuesday, Jan. 31, in what turned out to be an exciting game when the Vandals made a big comeback in the fourth quarter to almost pull out a win over the Lobos. The Lobos came out playing

tough defense and running with the basketball to take an 18 to 11 first quarter lead on the strength of four threepointers, two of which were from Matthew Martinez. The Lobos continued their high intensity play in the second quarter to increase their lead over Vandals to 16 points at the end of the first half, 36 to

20. The Vandals came out strong at the start of the third quarter running and breaking the Lobos tough half court press for easy scores. The Vandals took five points off the Lobo lead at the end of the third quarter, bringing the score to 51 to 40. The game got very interesting

in the fourth quarter especially when the Lobos shot blocker, Adrian Ochoa, fouled out allowing the Vandals to attack the rim with more intensity and almost pulled it out as the Lobos, behind the play of Matthew Manriquez and Julian Gomez, held on to win the game 69 to 66. Julian Gomez led the Lobo

scoring with 27 points with Matthew Manriquez close behind with 24 points. Matthew Martinez, with three three-pointers and a free shot, had 10 points. A hard playing Roman Padilla chipped in six points and a monster of a player on defense and on the boards Adrian Ochoa added See Lobos, Page 12

Hayden athletes succeed in college sports

By Nolberto Waddell With the lull between the end of the basketball season for the Hayden Lobos and the start of the baseball and softball season, there isn’t much to report until the action starts later in the month. With nothing to write about, I decided to look up the doings of some of the Hayden athletes who are members of college and junior college athletic teams. Three Lobo graduates are members of junior college softball teams and all are doing quite well and I will report on them in a later article: they are Camille Lopez at Mesa Community College, Eliana Cabrera who is doing one heck of a job as a pitcher on the Eastern Arizona College softball team and Kaylin Gaona who is a member of the Glendale Community College softball team. There are two male athletes from Hayden High School that are also doing quite well in major university athletics, Lino Estrada who

wrestles for the Antelopes of Grand Canyon University and the other is Joseph Lopez, who will be in his second season as a pitcher on the Arizona State Sun Devil baseball team. With the Sun Devil baseball team starting its season this weekend the focus of this article will be on Joseph Lopez. Lopez graduated from Hayden High School after a stellar four years of playing football and baseball for the Lobos. Lopez, the son of Alfonso “Chito” and Laura Lopez, was a bruising running back for the Lobo football team and was quite the baseball player, earning the 2A Player of the Year award in 2007. After graduating from Hayden High School, Lopez did not make the baseball team at the University of Arizona and decided to transfer to South Mountain Community College. He turned in two very good years of baseball for South Mountain before transferring to Arizona State University. Lopez had

some very good stats when he finished his baseball career at South Mountain graduating in 2010. Lopez finished with a 14-win and three-loss career record with 125 strikeouts and a 3.06 ERA. The lofty stats earned him several scholarship offers to play baseball at major universities and he finally decided to attend Arizona State University. In his first year as a Sun Devil baseball player, Joseph wearing the number 53 uniform, appeared in 14 games coming out of the bullpen to post a one win and no loss record and record one save for a 3.00 ERA before missing the end of the season with an arm injury. The injury caused Joseph to miss out playing in the college world series. This year Joseph, again wearing the number 53 Sun Devil jersey, is listed as a middle reliever and a closer for the Sun Devil baseball season. He hopes to stay free of injury and get more action out of the bullpen for

The closer … Joseph Lopez (53) is a second-year Sun Devil and pitches as a midreliever and closer for the college team. He pitched two years for the South Mountain baseball program. This past weekend, he pitched at Packard Stadium in the ASU vs. ASU Alumni game. The Sun Devils will open their season this weekend against Western Michigan at Packard Stadium. Lopez is a 2008 Hayden High School graduate. (Submitted photo) the Devils. If you get the opportunity to drive to Tempe this weekend, maybe a trip to Packard Stadium to catch a

Devil’s game will give you the opportunity to meet-up with the proud parents who will most likely be coming from a Mesa Community

College softball game where they were rooting for their daughter, Camille, who plays shortstop on the Mesa softball team.

Resolution Copper – Funding could be in jeopardy By Mila Lira On Thursday last week, officials from Resolution Copper explained to the United States Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee that if the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2012 is not approved by the end of the year there is great concern that Rio Tinto may choose to invest in other projects. Resolution Copper Vice President Jon Cherry explained in his testimony that to date Resolution Copper has invested $750 million studying the feasibility of the project, and that to continue moving forward Resolution will need to request another $6 billion to fully develop the project from their parent company Rio Tinto. The hearing was called by Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Bingaman called the hearing because of the differences in the bill that was approved in the house in October H.R. 1904 and Senate bill 409 which was introduced in 111th Congress. In the current version of the bill, the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) will be completed after the land is exchanged. S.B. 409 required that NEPA be completed before the land is exchanged and it also gave the Secretary of Agriculture the final say to approve the exchange provided the secretary felt it was in the best interest of the public. Resolution Copper officials also testified that they expect the mine plan of operations to be completed by the second quarter of this year and that the completion of the operation plan will trigger the NEPA process. Senators John McCain and Jon Kyle testified in support of the project. Several letters of support for the project were submitted by local governments including the Town of Superior. Shan Lewis from the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona testified in opposition of the project. He expressed concern that the project will jeopardize sacred sites for the San Carlos Apache Tribe. In a press conference following the hearing Cherry explained that the hearing went as they had expected and he thanked Congressman Paul Gosar and Senators McCain and Kyle for their support. If the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2012 is approved it will transfer 2,422 acres of land in the Tonto National Forest known as the Oak Flat Campground to Resolution Copper. In turn Resolution will convey 5,300 acres of Arizona conservation land to the United States, the majority of which lies in the San Pedro River Valley. The Resolution Copper project is expected to create 3,700 mining jobs and 3,000 construction jobs.

two points. The Lady Lobos of Hayden High also took care of business against the Lady Vandals with an equally exciting basketball game. The Lobos pulled out to a 9 to 5 lead after one quarter of play and it looked like they were heading on the road to defeat, scoring only three second quarter points to fall behind the Lady Vandals 12 to 17 at the end of the first half. The Lady Lobos came out of the first half break determined not to lose to the Vandals. Behind the hard play of Devin Estrada the Lobos cut the Vandal lead to one point trailing 23 to 24 when the third quarter buzzer went off. The Lady Lobos turned on the intensity in the fourth quarter and the Lady Vandals had no answer, losing the basketball game 38 to 35. Devin Estrada and Demitria Boltarez led Lobo scoring with nine points apiece with Melissa Islava scoring eight Lobo points. Yvonnah Gonzales fighting hard under the boards finished with six points. Rounding out Lobo scoring were Mary Lechuga with two points and Melinda Marinez with four points. The Superior Panthers were on the Lobo court on Thursday, Feb. 1, for what turned out to be another exciting game when the Lobo


Continued from Page 6 other items were collected the week before and taken to the dump. The town is looking good. Let’s all pitch in and try to keep it clean! Thank you the Town of Kearny for the bags and picking the trash up on Monday and Fellowship Baptist Church and Kearny Senior Center for getting behind this project. Now….just a quick commentary about the Great Kearny Clean-Up. Why did the SENIORS (who some were actually cleaning up with a cane) have to get out to pick up the trash that was probably thrown out the window by someone half their age? Why is it that

February 15, 2012 nemesis returned to haunt them. The Lobos came out of the gates playing hard, running and playing tough defense behind Gomez, Manriquez and Ochoa and all the starters to take a big 19 to 7 lead in the first quarter. The dark cloud that appeared over the Lobos in several games came back to haunt them when the Lobos could only come up with one free shot in the second quarter while the Panthers continued their tough play to cut the Lobo lead to one point 20 to 19 at the end of the first half. The Lobos came out playing hard in the third quarter to take a five point lead but the play of the Panther’s Martin Granillo started to take its toll. The black cloud over the Lobos returned in the fourth quarter scoring only six fourth quarter points and the Lobo defense could not stop a determined Granillo as he scored 12 of the Panther’s 18 fourth quarter points to lead them to a 42 to 49 win over the hard playing Lobos. Matt Manriquez led Lobo scoring with 15 points with Julian Gomez getting 13 points. Adrian Ochoa finished with 10 points with Marcos Gonzales adding a threepointer. The Lady Lobos had an easy time – well almost an easy time – against the Lady Panthers. The Lady Lobos came out playing tough defense holding the Lady

Panthers scoreless in the first quarter but the Lady Lobos inability to put the basketball in the basket kept the game within reason 11 to 0. The Lady Lobos’ inability to score, only four points, continued in the second quarter but their defense still played hard holding the Panthers to only one bucket to take a 15 to 2 lead into the half time break. The Lady Lobo scoring drought continued in the third quarter with only one bucket in the third quarter while the Panthers found a bit of their scoring touch to cut the Lobo lead to 17 to 10 after three quarters of play. The Lady Lobos seemed to have enough of their scoring drought coming out strong in the fourth quarter scoring 19 fourth quarter points and allowing only six Panther fourth quarter points to hand the Lady Panthers a lopsided 36 to 16 defeat. Yvonnah Gonzales led Lady Lobo scoring with 12 points followed by Melissa Islava with seven points and Demitria Boltarez with five points. Ashley Cruz had four points, Bianca Lopez three points and Devin Estrada and Yusi Casado each had two points. The last game of the season had the Lobo basketball teams and the cheerleaders honoring their parents and grandparents with Parent’s Night festivities and honoring the seniors playing their last game on the See Lobos, Page 13

in the town of Kearny, the SENIORS see the need to clean-up and have to motivate the younger generation to join them in their quest for pride in the community? Thank you Kearny Senior Center for this first “Great Kearny CleanUp.” Will there be another? I am thinking so… We continue our series on the five purposes of the church this Sunday night with a very special time of music provided by “Walking1-Eighty.” Thank you Fellowship for loaning us this group of talented men and women for out Sunday night Service. We are putting the final plans in place for the Pioneer Days Jail. Yes, we will have a jail this year! Start thinking of who you would want

arrested in the name of raising money for ‘Family First’ in Winkelman. Bail will be set at a fixed $25 per person and they will need to raise it themselves by calling out or emailing friends and family from the jail cell with phones provided by CNSI of Kearny. This will be on Friday, the 30th of March. Don’t forget the Greatest Gift is still – FREE! That is the gift of Eternal Life through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ! Please visit a church that shares the truth this weekend! So, there you have it…If you have any questions or comments please send me a note at or give me call at 520-3639573. God Loves YOU!

Continued from Page 12 Lobo court. The San Carlos Braves provided the opposition and they showed why they are a respected program winning all of the scheduled games for the night. The Lady Lobos were on the court first honoring four senior Lady Lobos playing their last game on the Lobo court. Wearing the Lobo Blue and White for the last time on the basketball court were Yusi Casado, Mary Lechuga, Yvonnah Gonzales and Demitria Boltarez. The Lady Lobos came out hard playing tough in the first quarter to take a 17 to 10 lead over the Lady Braves. The hard play by the Lobos continued in the second quarter but the three point shooting of the Lady Braves started to take their toll as they cut the Lobo seven point lead to two points at the end of the first half, 26 to 24. The Lobo black cloud appeared over the Lady Lobos in the third quarter scoring only four points as the Lady Braves overtook the Lobos 30 to 34 at the end of the third quarter. The low scoring did not hold

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona back the Lady Lobos as they fought back and played the Braves tough in the fourth quarter almost pulling the game out losing a heartbreaker 36 to 38. Demitria Boltarez in her last game led Lobo scoring with 13 points. Melissa Islava had 11 points and Yvonnah Gonzales also in her last game scored 10 points. Devin Estrada and Yusi Casado each contributed a free shot. Demitria Boltarez, Yvonnah Gonzales and Mary Lechuga, starters for most of the season, will be missed next year and the defense of Yusi Casado will be hard to replace. The Lady Lobos had a hard time winning games in their scheduled tournaments but they posted a respectable seven wins against seven losses in their scheduled games. It was a great joy covering the play of the four senior Lady Lobos and here’s wishing them good luck in their future plans. The tough play of the Braves basketball team made it hard on the Lobos with three seniors playing their last game for the Lobos. The Lobos honored starter Matthew Manriquez and reserve players Gabriel Encinas and Derrick to reflect the zoning board’s recommendation and remain accessible through the Board’s decision on the case and for 30 days thereafter. Studley acknowledged that the project would not have been possible without the assistance of many of her colleagues, especially the staff in the county’s Information Technology department. “We are pleased to raise the bar on government transparency with access to this information on the internet. The county has an “A” rating for website transparency but we aren’t content to rest there,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Pete Rios. “This is another step in the County’s effort to keep the public informed and provide useful e-government services.” In January 2009, the Pinal County Board led the way by making background information and detailed documentation for Board agenda items available online.

Benavidez before the start of the basketball game. Maybe the hard play of the Lobos in their previous two games of the week had an effect but their play was not what they had shown previously. Bad passing and many missed scoring opportunities led to a Braves’ seven point lead at the end of the first quarter, 10 to 17. The ominous black cloud came out for the Lobos in the second quarter with only five points added to the scoreboard while the Braves continued to add to the lead taking a 15 to 30 lead into the half time break. The low scoring continued in the third quarter with the Braves adding to their lead to take a comfortable 22 to 41 spread into the final stanza. The Lobos decided they were not going down that easy and decided to give the departing seniors something to remember, coming out strong behind the scoring of Julian Gomez to make a game out of it before the final buzzer went off. The Lobos fought hard coming up a little short as time

Page 13

ran out, 46 to 53. It was a tough night for Lobo senior point guard Matthew Manriquez as the high intensity play of the Braves kept him to a season low of only three points. Julian Gomez led Lobo scoring with 18 points with a hard playing Adrian Ochoa adding 13 points. Marcos Gonzales added six points and Roman Padilla had two points. Departing seniors Derrick Benavidez and

Gabriel Encinas each scored two points in their final game as Lobo basketball players. The Lobo basketball team did not finish with the record they expected posting a six wins against 10 losses on the regular schedule and had a 10 wins and 15 loss record when their tournament action was added. The Lobos let some games get away when their black cloud would make its presence – low scoring quarters.
