Letter to the Editor: Dunn-Misita announces candidacy for Kearny mayor Editor, Copper Basin News: It was recently brought to my attention that it is the Copper Basin News’ policy that every candidate running for office may submit one letter to the editor to announce their candidacy. I would like to do just that. My name is Samantha Dunn-Misita and I am running for the Office of Mayor. I love Kearny! I grew up here and I was so happy to have moved back here when my kids were in high school. I made the choice to bring them back here because I knew it was a great place to raise kids. We might not have all that the big cities have to offer as far as entertainment or activities but I know, as a parent, the level of involvement in your kids lives and in the community itself has much more bearing on how your kids turn out than what is there

to entertain them. Being raised in Kearny and now being a business owner of two businesses in town, I have quite a stake in what goes on in our community and in how the tax dollars are spent. Since becoming a council member for the town, I have already learned a lot about how the town runs and what its challenges are. I am grateful for the experience. I was pleased to learn that in the latest independent audit that the town has weathered the revenue reductions and economic challenges over the last ten years nicely. That is more than many small communities can say! As a Mayor, I know that there is only so much one person can do, but I know that I have a lot offer. I believe I would be able to make informed decisions and help to keep our town moving in a positive direction. The current council

has had to make some tough choices lately in regards to the current economy. As a business owner, I can relate to that. A government needs to be run like a business in order to stay economically viable. I have owned my own businesses most of my adult life and have been involved with many organizations and groups that have contributed to the communities I have lived in. I have always been very involved and I am not afraid to speak up. I was raised to be a strong willed, honest person and I would work hard to be the kind of Mayor who would do what is best for this town. Our town is in for a lot of changes with the new elections and recent turnover in its ranks but with the right leadership I believe we, as a community, can come out stronger and even more stable than before. I have

addressed. And lastly, I would be so proud to be the Mayor of Our Town! If you have any questions please feel free to call me. My phone number is 3639574. I would welcome your inquiries. Sincerely, /s/ Samantha DunnMisita

Letter to the Editor: UPS driver announces retirement Editor, Copper Basin News: I would to say thank you to all the residents of Kearny, Hayden, Winkelman, Dudleyville, Aravaipa and Dripping Springs. For the last 12 years, I have had the pleasure to be your UPS driver. You have treated me more as a life-long friend

Letter to the Editor: County employees should resign before running for office Editor: I will be asking my elected colleagues to sign a resolution to hold their employees to the same standards of conduct that the Board holds its staff to. The resolution is straightforward: current county employees should resign their position if they intend to run for a paid partisan political office. Our Board has held this standard for many years and I feel our constituents expect other elected officials to follow suit. Our Pinal County Policy and Procedures 1.30.A, states quite clearly that no county employee “shall be a candidate for nomination or election to any paid partisan political office.” This is to distinguish from elected officials in their

final year of office. Even the federal Hatch Act addresses this issue by proclaiming that “a state or local officer or employee may not be a candidate for elective office.” If the federal government concludes that a county violates the Hatch Act, that jurisdiction may lose federal funds. I do not want to see the county lose vital funding. Taxpayers should not have to question if a county employee is using your taxpayer dollars, taxpayer funded equipment or transportation to further his or her own campaign. It calls into question whether they are working or campaigning while fulfilling their duties. The public has the right to expect good government

and good policy from Pinal County. They do not need a county official who intends to run for another position to be collecting

full time pay while seeking partisan office, raising money or conducting public events and speaking engagements.

It is not my intention of trying to squelch anyone’s passion for public service. Just don’t do it on the taxpayer’s dime.

Sincerely, /s/ Pete Rios Chairman Pinal County Board of Supervisors

Georgie Digs ... By Georgie Wood (ggannwood@yahoo. com) Interesting to me is the following Madeleine L’Engle quote: “If you don’t recount your family history, it will be lost. Honor your own stories and tell them too. The tales may not seem very important, but they are what binds families, and makes each of us what we are.” In 2007, I watched the Court TV show “The Investigators - Lethal Beauty” and the attorney who talked on the show had a last name that sounded very familiar to me. After checking different family records, I found it was the same last name of my father’s greatgreat-grandfather who had been born in Virginia in 1759. After easily obtaining the attorney’s home telephone number in South Carolina, I called him and he couldn’t have been nicer! After he gave me his father’s home telephone number in Mississippi, I called the father who was also very nice. Talk about southern hospitality! The father soon mailed me copies of his 49-page genealogy research that went back to a relative born in 1614 in Graveshead, England. Trying to figure out what branch of that family that my father’s great-greatgrandfather had originated from was not easy, and how interesting was the history of those families! According to a transcript of the diary of “Sally,” a daughter born in 1795 in South Carolina to the above mentioned greatgreat-grandfather to my father, Sally wrote that her parents were religious; that her father had been called to the Baptist ministry when she was an infant; that she was brought up in the love and fear of the Lord; and that she was awakened to see herself a sinner at seven years old, but she went on sinning

and praying. From her other entries, it appeared to me that Sally felt guilty as to what brought about the births of her eight children by her husband Johnson Day. How pathetic! The August 1849 will of Sally’s father “a Minister of the Gospel in

Anderson District, South Carolina” stated that he was the owner of 200 acres of land less or more, with stock horses, cows, hogs and sheep. His will first mentioned his “black woman” and her son; that they have the liberty to choose their master; and

his value of them was $600. His seven children were named in his will, but of his youngest, the above mentioned Sally, he wrote, “for my beloved Sally Day - she lives far off in Texas - I therefore bequeath unto her one dollar”. I imagine one dollar went much

further in those days! By the time of this 1849 will, of Sally and Johnson Day’s eight children, their fourth born in 1820 was my greatgrandmother, Mahala J. Day, who I hope didn’t have the religious fears her mother had suffered with.

temporary. Maybe it was God’s way of slowing me down to appreciate everything that He has given me. You know, God’s Word says we do not own anything, we are just caretakers of what He has given us. I am thankful for my wife and family, my church family and this town that the Lord has called us to! What are you thankful for? God reminded me of what He said in Hebrews 12:28 – “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so

worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.” In good times and in bad – be thankful! The truth is this is easier said than done, especially when that light at the end of the tunnel turns out to be a train! Rest assured – God is in control! He is not only in control of my life, but yours and the life of this town. Here is what I learned – the light at the end of the tunnel was a train but it was not coming towards me…it was actually God leading me the way out! Matthew 5:14 states – “You

Pastor’s Corner By Steve Yurek Pastor, Kearny SBC Thank you for the great turn out at the Valentine’s Day Banquet and concert. Because of the great response (over 140 people) we had to move it to Leo Terrill Hall. Music was provided by Peter Whitebird and the night was sponsored by Kearny SBC, Fellowship Baptist Church, Church of the Good Shepherd and Copper Valley Christian Center. I think all that attended would agree, we need to do this again very soon! This was the final event of our “Journey To the Center of Life” city-wide event. Our next event will be during Pioneer Days at the end of March. Don’t you just miss being able to get out to a movie on the weekends? Well I have been thinking about this for

quite a while and would like to start showing movies at Kearny SBC on Friday or Saturday nights. What night do you think would be best? The first movie I would like to show is Courageous. I would like to set it up in a theater setting with popcorn, drinks and of course Twizzlers! All the movies would be free (or at a minimal cost). Movie nights are coming in the next few weeks! This past Sunday I had to cancel service as I was down with the flu that has been going around town. In fact my whole family was sick with it! As I was sitting home on Sunday I started to think about how much I have to be thankful for. Yes, I was sick with a headache, fever and nose that was flowing like Niagara Falls, but I was reminded that this cold is just

Former Lobo to wrestle in Rocky Mountain tourney By Nolberto Waddell This week-end another Hayden athlete will be in the spotlight representing his university in a major event. Avellino “Lino” Estrada, son of John Estrada and Jena Estrada and a 2009 graduate of Hayden High School will be wrestling in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Super Regional Wrestling Tournament. Lino, a four year wrestling letterman from Hayden High was one of the most successful and winningest wrestlers to come out of the Lobo wrestling program and also in club wrestling placing in the top tiers in many national tournaments. Lino was a three time state champion for Hayden High School and in his senior year accomplished something that few athletes can lay claim to: an undefeated season to go with his state championship. His wrestling accomplishments earned

him many wrestling scholarships upon graduation finally deciding to accept a full ride scholarship from Grand Canyon University to wrestle for the Antelope wrestling team. Lino accepted a red shirt season as a true freshman to gain experience and get stronger for the rigors of college wrestling. Lino compiled a 10 win against 6 loss record in his freshman year, wrestling mostly in open tournaments to gain the experience he would need. Lino wanted to wrestle at a weight comfortable to him, 133 pounds, in his red shirt freshman year but it meant wrestling behind an All-American wrestler that would end up winning a national championship that year so he decided to go up in weight to 144 pounds. Wrestling at the higher weight meant going against some stronger opponents but he still held his own, wrestling to an 8 win against 6 loss record See Lino, Page 11

Asarco celebrates 100 plus years in Copper Basin, Part 4 By Rosalind Padilla The Hayden Golf Course will be the place to be this Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at noon as ASARCO honors Arizona’s 100th and their own 100th year in Hayden. The activities are free for everyone. ASARCO’s existence in Hayden is different from other mining towns where the companies might have owned the town where they were operating. Hayden was owned and maintained by Kennecott Copper until 1956. The businesses were in downtown Hayden and across the canyon from Hayden was the ASARCO smelter. On that side of the canyon were areas for housing, excellent recreational facilities including a swimming pool and medical care. The road to the smelter was where the existing road is except for houses along the Cliffside overlooking the canyon. There were houses on the hill where the heliport is now with entrances and exits on both sides of the hill. The road near the entrance at Highway 177 can still be seen. As you drive towards the smelter you look right and can see parts of the area once called Cement Hill. Most of the families moved to Dudleyville and Aravaipa Terrace; sometimes moving

as a complete neighborhood. Homes were also in the area of the current smelter parking lot, homes especially for the administrators. In the early 1960’s these areas which provided housing for the employees were demolished to make way for the major construction of the current smelting facilities. Smelterside and Hayden were connected by a bridge for vehicles which click clacked and seemed to sway. Near the power house was another bridge more like a catwalk. Those who preferred walked through ‘EL Canyon’ in which families lived. It might have looked like a creek was running through this canyon toward what is now the crusher but it was mostly waste from the concentration and/or fecal matter, as there were no sewer systems for those living in the canyon. Besides the copper anodes we see on the trucks and the slag we see dumped daily, the other most visible byproduct we see is the tailings. After many processes of grinding, sifting, floatation; water is reclaimed and the remaining substance flows to a disposal area called the tailings where the dry tailings look like desert sand. Children growing up on Utah Street and surrounding streets and San Pedro loved to play in

this giant sandbox which they called the ‘Hallies’ (pronounced Hollies; after checking many sources I have not found the exact definition for this word or the correct spelling). Now located across the highway you can see the changes in the length and height of this giant formation. Georgie Wood who grew up in Smelterside recalls in her memoirs that they would clean the house in the morning, a wind would come up and the tailings seemed to have shifted to Smelterside. At that time the tailings were only 12 to 15 feet high. Looking back at some of the stories featured in the past few years, excerpts from 1910-1915 memoirs are as follows: As the area was being developed the smelter was under construction, Fred Morris recalled living in a 30 foot long tent house holding six bunk beds and a dozen men. His mattress was a bale of hay. In the first years when the work was primarily construction, men did not bring their families but lived together in the tent houses. In 1912 the average worker earned $2.95 per 12 hour shift, no paid vacations, no holidays, no sick leave, or other fringe benefits. According to Ella Goodridge, Fred Morris and Fred Bush

(all residents in Hayden at that time), Pancho Villa, a Mexican revolutionary who had been interested in social reform for his people, was frustrated when the United States recognized the government of his opponent. In 1915 he killed 16 US citizens and attacked the town of Columbus, New Mexico. Hayden residents were prepared with guns in their homes and both the smelter and the mill warehouses were full of rifles and ammunition. There are rumors that he made it into the area but did not attack and just stole what he needed. Some local residents still have these guns. Pictures of the guards sent to patrol are on display in the Chamber office. Gloria Flores Apodaca in her memoirs states that her Nana Mercedes inherited a substantial estate and because of their wealth and position the family was able to live in Smelterside. Gloria found the foot bridge very frightening and walking into the canyon was more rewarding, as she could stop for hot buttered tortillas along the way. The easiest way to get to her grandparents house in Winkelman was to walk the trail around the water tank and ending up by what is now Lobo Lane. Ella Goodridge who was 20

when she arrived in Hayden related that a group of young adults were curious about the noises they heard across the canyon. They got as close to the edge of the canyon as they could and to see what was going on. Excavation was underway to build the smelter. The men were mostly African Americans stripped to the waist, muscles rippling, sweat streaming and using a language all their own. From the tales she told, this group of young adults were the ones who made the trails that people have used over the past century to get from Smelter side to Hayden. One morning she woke to loud pounding and found that a bridge was being built by the powerhouse from Millside to Smelterside. When finished they walked over it with fear and trembling which is what most people say who have walked it. Parts of the vehicle bridge can be seen clinging to the Hayden side of the canyon as seen from the smelter parking lot. July 4, 1912, when Arizona was five months old, Ella attended the morning festivities, went to work at the telephone office for the afternoon shift, and when the shift was over Frank Parker picked her up in a horse and buggy. They headed

to the teachers’ dorm (on Utah Street) where the July 4th dance was held. A new floor had been installed, great for dancing. Festivities for the day had included games for the kids, baseball games, picnics all day long and a dance at night. Many changes have been made to the mill, concentrator and smelter as well as the housing quarters; a bustling community with merchants providing the community needs. Roads into the area curved around the mountains and hills and were not paved. Railroads provided passenger and delivery service. ASARCO’s main operations include three open pit copper mines in Arizona (Mission, Ray, and Silverbell); one copper smelter in Hayden and one copper smelter and precious metals plant in Amarillo Texas. From the Grupo Mexico website, “The mining division currently represents the majority of sales and is comprised of Southern Copper Corp, which includes Minera, Mexico and Southern Peru as well as ASARCO in the United States.” Saturday support the major employer in the Copper Basin by attending their ONE HUNDRED years celebration in Hayden.

Five nominated for Citizen of the Year By Vicki Clark Five citizens of the Copper Basin area have been nominated for the 2011 Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year award for a variety of reasons ranging from youth participation to community commitment. The announcement of the honor will take place during the annual COY dinner next Monday evening at Trendz Restaurant in Hayden. Also on the agenda is the announcement of the new board of directors of the chamber. Nominations for COY are asked from the public at large. This year 11 letters were submitted, with multiple nominations. Each nominee is deserving according to the selection committee, which is made up of previous COY winners. Nominated were Martina Burnam, Margaret Gaston, Angel and Maria Gonzales, Nancy Hinojos and Joe Weller. Martina Burnam, according to the nomination letter, has quietly worked on projects and has continuously volunteered for activities in the Copper Basin area for years. She is currently vicepresident of the Copper Community Action Board (CCAB) and has assisted in clean-ups of Hayden, Winkelman and Dudleyville. This past year she aided in the 2011’s Haunted House Night in Hayden and Pinitos Park and in December helped with the HaydenWinkelman Christmas Light Parade. She has been an active member of the Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce for many years and has worked with the Winter Wonderland committee for the last three years and with the Pioneer Days committee for the last seven years. She has also served on

the Chamber’s board of directors for the last three years. She was also instrumental in starting the Copper Basin Idol program in 2005 and in bringing the Women’s Expo to our area. The nomination letter went on to say that Martina is an unsung hero who tirelessly gives her time, so children and adults in our area can have great family memories. Margaret Gaston received six nomination letters each outlining many of the same things including chairperson of the Copper Basin Food Bank and liaison with Florence Food Bank, which sponsors the program; chairperson of the Pioneer Day and Electric Light Parade; coordinator with the Apache Gold Casino for use of its soundstage for Oktoberfest; and continuing chairperson of the Kearny 50th Year Anniversary Committee where she was instrumental in the design, purchase and installation of the rock waterfall located in the Kearny Mall area. In addition, Margaret is Co-Chairperson and participant of VIPS

(Volunteers in Police Service) in Kearny; has served as coordinator of Kearny’s 4th of July celebration in alternating years with Hayden; and has organized and directed Kearny’s annual Easter Eggs Hunt for many years. Her other activities in the community include lending her talent as a pianist at the Church of the Good Shepherd; serving as a member of the church’s leadership and worship

team and assisting in the operation of the Good Shepherd Express Train for children at numerous celebrations and festivals in the area. One of the nomination letters also stated that Margaret is an active and dedicated citizen of the Copper Basin area. “In addition to her volunteer work, she is never too busy to help a friend or neighbor who is in need of See COY, Page 12

Eight lovelies compete for crowns at annual Pioneer Days contest By Vicki Clark Eight young ladies have come forward to compete for Pioneer Days Queen titles this year. A Queen and Junior Queen will be crowned. So who will they be? This will depend on the efforts of the contestants and your help. When the Queen competition first began, the winner was named only on the amount of money raised by the contestant. Over the years, the rules have changed and the contestants now have the opportunity to compete in a fashion show and speech contest, based on a point system. Points are awarded in each category along with extra points for ticket sales, prompt recording of sales and responsibility. The contestants have already began spreading out over the Copper Basin area, and points beyond, selling chances to win one of three prizes. First place winner will be awarded $500, second place is $250

and the third place is $150. Each Queen contestant also receives a percentage of the amount earned. Tickets are $1 a chance and everyone is encouraged to support the efforts of these young ladies. Running for the title of Queen or Junior Queen this year are Martina Aranda, Jessica Fessenden, Destiny Guereña, Josette Kimmel, Lainey Lopez, Cheyanne Rodriguez, Jennifer Sims and Leah Wallace. Martina, 13, is the daughter of Corinne Aranda and Robert Rutledge and is a sixth grader at Ray Elementary School. She is an honor roll student, loves sports and plays the trombone in the band. She likes to help out around her home and to play after school sports. She also loves food. She said her hopes for the future include going to college and then finding a job suited just right for her. Martina wanted to run for Pioneer Jr. Queen because, “you only get so many

chances to be a queen.” She added, “I’m glad to be running for queen and I have great friends and family to help me out. I wish all the girls to have fun and do their best. Good Luck!” Jessica is the daughter of Geneva Brenaman and James Fessenden. She is 17 and a sophomore at Ray High School. She likes to sing and her hopes for the future include a career as an OBGYN.

contest for Queen this year because, “I feel like it will be a fun learning experience and it’s always fun to have a little extra attention. Plus I get to meet new people.” She added that she’s actually not really

shy at all and is a very loud person. Josette, 16, is a junior at Ray High and the daughter of Chatawn and John Kimmel Sr. She is a honor roll student and is a member of the

Continued from Page 6 midway through the season before suffering a season ending injury. The injury was not wrestling related. One evening he decided to take a run along Baseline Road in Phoenix when he found out the hard way about life in the big city. On his jog he was jumped by two wouldbe thugs demanding his I-pod and phone. Lino, deciding he would not be taken advantage of, put up a fight injuring his wrist and suffering a slight stab wound to his shoulder. The stab wound was not much but the wrist injury ended his wrestling season for the year. The thugs ran away unable to take anything away from Lino. This year Lino worked hard and earned a spot in the line-up at 133 pounds and he has found out that college completion is tough. Lino states that every kid he faces is tough and it’s like wrestling for a state championship every time out on the mat. His 14 win and 12 loss record has some impressive upset wins over some nationally ranked wrestlers. Estrada is hoping for a

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona good seed this weekend at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Super Regional Tournament in Hays, Kansas. If Lino has a good weekend for the nationally number 5 ranked Grand Canyon University wrestling team and places in the top four of his weight class he will advance to the NCAA II Championships on March 9. Lino will have some family members rooting for him this weekend at the tournament and his family at home will also be praying and rooting for a great show at the tournament. Keep an eye on the state newspapers for results of his endeavors this weekend. Here’s wishing this young man a ton of luck as he represents his university, his coaches, his family and friends, his community and the pride of being a Lobo athlete. The next Hayden college athlete article will be on the three Lady Lobo softball players now playing on junior college teams: Eliana Cabrera pitching for Eastern Arizona College, Camille Lopez playing shortstop for Mesa Community College and Kalyn Gaona playing the outfield for Glendale Community College.

Continued from Page 8 assistance. She is a caring person who epitomizes the definition of a true humanitarian.” Angel and Maria Gonzales, according to the nominating letter, are not only a team in their marriage, but are also a volunteer team for the Hayden-Winkelman area. Angel is a member of the Hayden Volunteer Fire Department and is currently the assistant chief. Through this department he had volunteered to cook for the community for the 4th of July and Back to School Splash celebrations. The couple has also volunteered for the Christian Waddell Softball Tournament that raises money for scholarships for Copper Area graduates. The nomination letter goes on to say that Angel and Maria work the hardest when they are volunteering for the Hayden-Winkelman Little League. In 2011, Angel was a coach and Maria served as the treasurer. She helped in fundraising by getting up at 2 a.m. to roll burros and selling them to generous workers at ASARCO. “You may be thinking,” according to the nomination letter, “that what Angel and Maria did last year and in the past years is what a parent does during little league season. The only difference is that they do not have kid playing little league. Angel and Maria volunteer

because they feel they are needed.” The nomination letter goes on to say that “as a team, Angel and Maria deserve to be the Copper Basin Citizen(s) of the year for 2011. They epitomize what a volunteer is: dependable, encouraging, selfless and hard working.” Nancy Hinojos received two nominations for Citizen of the Year. Both letters recommended Nancy as Citizen of the Year based her participation primarily with the Copper Basin Junior Chamber of Commerce. According to the nomination letters, Nancy has coordinated activities in local events combining RHS and HHS students to work together as one Junior Chamber to help with Pioneer Days, Great Pumpkin, Easter Eggs Hunts, Haunted House and Winter Wonderland. She also volunteers as a water aerobics instructor at the Hayden Swimming Pool and is the team manager of the Blazers softball team in the summer. In addition, Nancy volunteers her time with the sound system during winter sports at HHS. Joe Weller has been nominated based on his commitment to the Town of Kearny and his church.
