Brian Strand nominated for America’s Most Wanted All Star; voting still open By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter Have you ever met someone who is so wonderfully selfless that they literally make you feel awe-inspired? You know – the type of person that makes you want to be a better person because they have set such an excellent example to be followed? A lovely, little bird recently

Brian Strand

San Manuel

told us about such a person and we just felt the need to recognize some of his superb qualities. Brian Strand, a firefighter with San Manuel Fire Department and an EMT for Tri-City Meds/Southwest Ambulance, is exactly the type of person who makes everyone else’s lives easier, better and more

enjoyable simply because he is so caring. For instance, Brian went to work one day feeling a little off…most people would call it a day and stay home until they felt more prepared to face the world. This is not how Brian works. He heads in to work typically regardless of how he feels because he knows he

has the ability to help others so a little discomfort on his side is no big thing. One day, he headed to work as an EMT and was called upon to transport another individual down to Oro Valley Hospital, which he responded to with the same passion as he would had it been any other day. His first concern was that of the

patient, whom Brian delivered to the hospital in rapid fire time. Upon making sure that the patient was situated and cared for, the nursing staff noticed that Brian (whom they see often) was not looking his usual chipper self and they See Brian, Page 7

Oracle Firewise presents AED to Mountain Vista School By John Hernandez The Oracle Firewise Board presented Mountain Vista School with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Principal Dennis Blauser accepted the AED from Collins Cochran. The AED can be used by lay people who have received only minimal training to revive people who have suffered cardiac arrest. All of

the Mountain Vista office staff have received training from the Oracle Fire Department in the use of the AED. This is the fourth AED that has been donated by the Firewise Group. AEDs are now located at the Oracle Community Center, Library and the Masonic Lodge. Larry Southard, Oracle Fire Department Battalion Chief, says there are plans to have

two more AEDs donated – one will go to Oracle Ridge Elementary School and one to Sierra Oaks Charter School. Southard said that there has been an emphasis to place these life saving devices in schools. Although it is rare for school age children to have cardiac arrest, there is always the chance of a kid suffering an injury, especially in athletics that could result in cardiac arrest. Schools also are a gathering place for large numbers of people attending events. Some of the parents and grandparents of the students could be at risk for heart problems. Having an AED could save a life. The Oracle Fire Department offers CPR training for the public which includes training on the use of the AED. For more information about the training contact the Oracle Fire Department at (520)896-2980 or email: info@oraclefire.org.

Accident sends two adults, two children to UMC Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Critical Accident Response Team has been called in to investigate a serious accident that occurred Feb. 13 on Redington Road near the San Manuel Golf Club. According to a deputy’s report, the two-vehicle accident was initially reported at approximately 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 13. The first deputy arrived on scene and noted that a white Nissan Armada

was facing southbound off the west side of the highway at milepost 53.8. The vehicle, the deputy reported, had extensive damage to the front and driver’s side. Two small children were buckled into car seats in the second row of the SUV. The driver, identified as Rosa Rodriguez, 53. A second vehicle, described only as a Toyota, was in the middle of the northbound lane, facing north. The deputy noted

that the vehicle had severe front end damage and extensive damage to the front roof area. The driver was later identified as Wayne Oliver Noble, 42. He was severely injured, unconscious and was trapped in the vehicle. San Manuel Fire Department was called in to extricate the driver. Tri-City Meds were also dispatched and a helicopter was launched. Rodriguez told deputies on scene that she was driving

southbound on Veteran’s Memorial Highway (Redington Road) when she noticed a vehicle traveling towards her that was swerving from side to side. She said it had gone into her lane and then would pull back into its own lane before driving off the road to the east. As the vehicle approached her, she said, it swerved into her lane at the last second and though she swerved away from the vehicle, it struck her. Her

airbags deployed. Rodriguez had her seatbelt on at the time of the collision. She and her two passengers, a girl age 3 and a boy age 4, were taken by ambulances to University Medical Center to be evaluated due to the severity of the accident. Noble was extricated and transported by helicopter to UMC. The Critical Accident Response Team was called in to investigate

the accident. According to Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Tim Gaffney, they are specially trained to complete advanced accident investigations on serious injury or fatal collisions. They have not yet released their findings. The road was closed and traffic rerouted through Oracle and Webb Road for at least four hours for extrication and investigation.

The Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc., (AZWP) is an all-volunteer philanthropic non-profit which provides grants to grass roots charities in Arizona.

Paula Cullison, President and Founder of the Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. recently announced the 2011 grant recipients; and said, “We are proud to note

that the Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. has awarded over $160,000 in grants since 2003 to more than 40 grass roots charities that assist underserved women and /

or youth at risk; many of the non-profits are multiple year AZWP grant recipients.” Among the 19 grassroots organizations selected to receive an AZWP grant is

Adelante Juntos Coalition. The grant will be used to support the further development of youth programming like the Big Sisters/Brothers mentoring program, and the CyberCafe

after school activities. “Without a supportive, positive environment that provides safe alternatives; our tweens, teens and young adults will find it easier to turn to alcohol and drugs for socialization, recreation and dealing with conflict and stress,” said AJC Director Betty Chavez. She added that what is desperately needed in the Tri-Community is a recreational/teen center. This award from AZWP is a strong endorsement for AJC youth programs that could persuade other potential donors to invest in providing for our rural kids. Chavez continues to seek and apply for grants and other funding streams that would enable AJC to re-open Avenue B School as a Center of Excellence that would include a teen ‘hotspot’ for the positive growth and development; as well as recreational needs of young people in the Tri-Community. Chavez stated that AZWP has been honored with gubernatorial and mayoral proclamations for their achievements; while Lori Walk, AZWP-Vice President See Grant, Page 7

Other mining news Rosemont Copper, the owner of the proposed mine in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson, has been accused of sending misleading promotional letters to about 20,000 Tucson residents, the Arizona Daily Star reported. The letters did not appear to come from Rosemont Copper. The letters were apparently signed by local neighborhood supporters of the mine. The people whose names appear on the letters do support the mine and agreed to have their names used. However, Rosemont sent the letters and has been criticized for using fake signatures. The letter also included a brochure about Rosemont and a postage-paid response card. Rosemont reported receiving over 4000 responses in support of the mine as a result of the letter.

Strong economies, strong communities

The Copper Corridor focuses on tourism, jobs, income By Lana Jones The Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition (CCEDC) completed two major projects in the last year and has another half dozen or so in the works. The Coalition’s Mobile Visitor’s Center was dedicated in May 2010. The Center made its most recent stop at the Superior Home Tour and Antique Show. It is touring local events this year. Liz Harris-Tuck, president of the CCEDC, said that the Center would tour locally first so that people in the region could see it. “But we also want to take the Center outside of our region to draw tourists,” she said. Harris-Tuck said the Center was available for local events this year. People planning events should call Mila Lira, (520) 8270676, to book a visit from the Mobile Visitor’s Center. The other project completed last year was the Discover Copper Corridor website (www.discovercoppercorridor.com). “We got funding last year from the Office of Tourism to develop that website,” Harris-Tuck said. “We’re pretty proud of it.” What’s the motivation for projects like the Mobile Visitor’s Center and new website? “Our goal is to try and provide more jobs within the region. There’s a big connection between having a strong community and having a strong economic base,” Harris-Tuck said. “It’s hard to have a strong community if people can’t work in the community, so the two go together.” Many of the communities in the Copper Corridor are struggling with unemployment. Superior had the highest unemployment in the region. The Arizona Department of Commerce calculated unemployment there averaged over 23 percent last year—nearly double the county average. Five other communities in the region also had unemployment above the county average of 11.7 percent: Mammoth (18.4 percent), San Manuel (16.2 percent), Hayden (16.1 percent), Miami (13.5 percent), and Oracle (12.3 percent). The state had average unemployment of 9.5 percent last year. Harris-Tuck said the CCEDC wants to support the communities, businesses, and individuals in our region. “We’re interested in supporting them to be economically viable, to improve their income, and at the same time we are very interested in maintaining our rural lifestyle. We’re not trying to bring in great big factories,” she said. “We’re really trying to also help the towns within our region, so that if they have companies they want to bring in or projects they want to work on, we can help

Serenyti Blyss Badia was born Jan. 14, 2011 at Banner Baywood Hospital in Mesa, weighing 6 pounds, 10.2 ounces and measuring 19.5 inches long. She is the daughter of Joseph Badia and Isabel DeHerrera of Mesa. Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Albert DeHerrera of San Manuel, Keren Badia of Globe and Raymond Badia of Casa Grande. Great-grandparents are Isabel and Phil Starks of San Manuel, Angela DeHerrera of Globe and Frances and Jack Pritchard of Mammoth.

She also has numerous aunts and uncles ready to spoil her sweet.

them with the economic development activity.” What the CCEDC needs to help them accomplish these goals is more participation from community members. “One of the things our organization needs is more input and more participation by residents who are interested in economic development,” she said. She also thought that the Copper Corridor was an undiscovered gem that just needed more recognition. “We need to let the world know that we are on the map,” she said. To these ends, CCEDC’s recent and current projects focus on tourism, supporting local businesses, and creating jobs. The Ore Cart Trail, AmeriCorps project, and an economic development strategic plan are ongoing CCEDC projects. They are also seeking funding for a new project: a business success center to be housed at Central Arizona College Aravaipa Campus. The Ore Cart Trail is a public arts project intended to create points of interest and link all the towns in the region. The first cart in Mammoth was dedicated in 2007. Harris-Tuck said that she expects the next cart in Winkelman to be installed within the year. The AmeriCorps Pinal County project, which includes community development and tourism support, is currently recruiting. The

CCEDC is involved in two parts of the project: the University of Arizona Miner’s Story Project and staffing the Mobile Visitor’s Center. The economic development strategic plan is funded by a USDA grant. The CCEDC will be working on it over the next couple months. The business success center is a new project in the works to provide training and consulting to regional businesses. Harris-Tuck said that CCEDC has applied for a grant for the center. “We haven’t heard whether we’re going to get this grant or not but we’re going to continue seeking funding for the center,” she said. The center will be located at Aravaipa Campus but will also have outreach through the Mobile Visitor’s Center since some towns in the region are quite far from Aravaipa. “We’ll be able to take the classroom to those towns and provide training and consulting that way,” said Harris-Tuck. The Copper Corridor Economic Development Center was formed in 2003. It serves the communities of Aravaipa, Dudleyville, Globe, Hayden, Kearny, Mammoth, Miami, Oracle, San Manuel, Superior, and Winkelman. They meet the third Friday of every month at 8:30 a.m. at the CAC Aravaipa Campus Administration

Building. They’ll develop goals for their economic development strategic plan at their February

meeting from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call Liz Harris-Tuck for more information (520) 896-2880 or

Making sure that the public is kept well-informed about the dangers posed by predators out to harm consumers is one of the most important jobs for the Attorney General. That is why every month this Office will send out this monthly update to the public to make sure you are made aware of possible dangers and, more importantly, of the things you can do to protect yourself. 1. Sign up for direct deposit with your bank to avoid mail theft and avoid having checks mailed to your home, especially Social Security, Disability benefits or Stock Dividends. 2. Join the Federal Trade Commission’s free DO NOT CALL registry by calling 1-888-382-1222. This will cut down telemarketing calls. 3. Avoid giving out personal or financial information over the phone. Your bank or credit card company will not call you to verify your account numbers, do not give them out. If you purchase something over the phone, make sure it is from a legitimate company.

4. Ignore direct mail advertising that offers anything “free” or almost free but requires a financial contribution from you. You should never have to pay taxes, legal fees or taxes out of pocket to claim a prize. 5. Beware of Medicare Drug Discount Card scams. Medicare drug discount cards cannot be sold over the phone or in unsolicited door-to-door sales. You should not need to provide proof of income when you obtain one because Medicare can access your IRS records. 6. Assign Power of Attorney using the Advance Directives Packet (available free from our Office) to a trusted person to make key health decisions on your behalf in case you become incapacitated. We hope these tips are helpful and if you need our assistance with a related matter, feel free to contact us at CommunityServices@azag. gov or 602-542-2123. Attorney General Tom Horne

Arizona Medical Eye Unit to visit Oracle The Arizona Medical Eye Unit, from the Lions Vision Center, Inc, will be giving Ophthalmological Medical Eye Examinations for the benefit of residents of Oracle and surrounding localities. The medical eye unit will be located at Sun Life Medical Clinic on March 10. Appointments and information may be obtained by calling 520-896-9192. Since only 20-30 patients can be examined each day, those who suspect they may have eye problems are urged to phone as soon as possible, to be assured of an appointment. The completely equipped $150,000 Arizona Medical Eye Unit was donated to the Lions Vision Center, Inc., through the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of Arizona, and, is sponsored by the Arizona Ophthalmological Society.

The current Ford F-350 truck was donated by Canyon Ranch Health Resorts. Members of the Arizona Ophthalmological Society, Arizona Lions Club, and the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of Arizona unite with other agencies and organizations to bring medical eye service to outlying areas of Arizona where ophthalmic care is not readily available. Arizona Ophthalmologists who are in private practice volunteer their time on the Medical Eye Unit, and, receive no remuneration. A large percentage of the Ophthalmologists in Arizona have volunteered their time and service on the “Unit”. The “Unit” has been in operation since January, 1976, and, travels approximately 13,000 miles per year, to serve thousands of patients

Casa Grande, AZ – Sun Life Family Health Center welcomes Robert Babyar, MD, back to the organization’s management team as Medical Director. Dr. Babyar joined Sun Life as a family practice provider in August 2001, and served as Medical Director from March 2003 to August 2007. He left in 2007 to take another opportunity in corporate medicine working urgent care, first as a day to day provider, then working as Medical Director for that urgent care network. Upon rejoining the Sun Life management team this month, Dr. Babyar states, “The decision that I made to make a change when I left Sun Life was the correct decision for me at the time, but my passion has always been to provide care in a community centered environment. In the time away from Sun Life, I found that my style and values for medicine were more in line with the community health center model than the corporate world. The core values of community health centers remain close to what I see medicine to be about. By taking care of the health of the community, the community can thrive and grow. Healthy people tend to be happier and more productive in their personal and professional lives. I want to continue to provide the leadership for Sun Life to continue to foster that to the communities we serve.” “Sun Life’s leadership saw an opportunity to creatively approach the function of medical direction,” states Travis J. Robinette, Sun Life’s CEO. “For the past three years, Ted Crawford, DO, has served as Medical Director as well as seeing patients three days a week in Sun Life’s Oracle and San Manuel communities. With Sun Life’s growth over the past three years, it has been difficult

Brian

Continued from Page 1 demanded that he be seen and would not allow him to leave. Here is the part that makes this man such a stellar individual: Brian had been working diligently to help someone else and the entire time he had been experiencing a massive heart attack. Who does that? There are not many people out there who put aside their own health for that of someone else and then manage to disguise their discomfort so well that others only notice it after the other person is well beyond taken care of. It is often the case that someone who is so well adept to noticing warning signs in someone else, would not notice them for themselves, but come on…a heart attack. That is pretty incredible and shows just how dedicated Brian is to the service of others. Brian was immediately admitted to the hospital and just as quickly was sent in for surgery, by which a stint was placed. It just so happened that a

week before the heart attack took place, his daughter paid a surprise visit from Japan and was able to be there for him during such a difficult time. At the same time, some of his family was moving to the area and were able to support him. Surgery showed that there was no major damage to his heart and with the stint placed, he was released the following morning. Considering that he suffered a heart attack, the whole ordeal unraveled like a well-orchestrated play… is it possible that karma was smiling on Brian for all of the wonderful things he has done for others? It definitely seems to be the case. No surprise to anyone who knows him well, Brian was back at work within a week of having the heart attack. The man is 50! Beyond working as an EMT, Brian also works as a firefighter for San Manuel and the dedication he shows to this job is equal to that which he shows his other. He happened to be working when the call came in for the Republic Plastics fire during the early hours of

New county manager meeting challenges, sees brighter days ahead

By Lana Jones How will the county continue to provide the services the public expects? That’s the question that Fritz Behring, the new Pinal County Manager, is trying to answer. “Our revenues are declining,” he said. He doesn’t see any indication that the situation is going to change anytime soon. “We’re probably never going to see the heyday again of the revenue coming in like it did in the last 10 years,” he said. Behring just started last November but he’s already working on saving money and making the county more efficient. “We recently got the Board [of Supervisors] to approve a plan to scrap two different building projects that they had approved before I got here and redirect the funds to renovating the courtroom,” said Behring. The building projects had a budget of a little over $3 million, which will be redirected to the courthouse. The courthouse renovation will also get matching federal stimulus funds. In his first year here, Behring would like to see the County begin to look at things differently. “Every organization has a culture and I truly believe that we have to change the organizational culture here,” he said. He said that County employees are probably having a hard time dealing with the big drop in revenue and that they have to learn to think differently. “My employees have to find ways to deliver services more efficiently,” he said. “I have to rely on my employees because they know better than I do.” Behring said that the Board of Supervisors and the public have to be willing to accept changes too. “We have to decide what is for government to do. The residents have to decide what they want,” he said. “The times have changed and government has to change with it.” Going forward, Behring said that the County has to make sure all of its operations are as efficient as

possible. One way to do that, Behring suggested, is by evaluating the need to refill positions when people retire. “As people retire, that’s when we force ourselves to ask the question: Do we need to refill that position?” he said. If the County can provide the same services by moving people around or changing job descriptions, why refill the position? Despite the challenges, Behring was positive about the future of Pinal County. “People have the right attitude to get through this thing and move forward,” he said. “There are brighter days ahead for us, it’s going to be a challenge to get through but we’ll get through it.”

Behring has experience managing through difficult times. His most recent position was with Clay County, Florida. He took that position in 2005, when Clay County was under investigation by state and federal law enforcement. His move from Florida to Arizona was motivated by his appreciation of the southwest and the opportunity to improve Pinal County. “They’ve already done a lot to improve the organization over the last several years but there’s still plenty of work to do. That’s true with any organization,” said Behring. His appreciation of the southwest is partially due to the weather, but he said the best thing about Arizona is the people.

Library Lines: News from the Mammoth Public Library By Diana Stirling It’s hard to believe that February is almost over. There’s still time to participate in some of this month’s programs, though. This week the First Things First Fun Van will make its last visit to our library. The preschoolers who have participated have had a great time learning through games and activities. Parents have come away with ideas and information about how to enrich the environment to encourage literacy related play. If you haven’t had a chance to enjoy this program yet, you won’t want to miss it this Thursday, Feb. 24, at 10 a.m. Also, a reminder that our book club meets this coming Saturday, Feb. 26, at 11 a.m. We’re reading Crocodile on

“I like the attitude of the people here in the west. The people are very genuine, no-nonsense,” he said. Behring is a native of South Dakota. He attended the University of South Dakota and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a Master’s of Public Administration degree. He served on the South Dakota Board of Regents of Higher Education by the governor and an advisory board for the National Institute for Justice. Behring looks forward to more bicycling and exercising now that he’s moved away from the oppressive Florida humidity. He’s never been much of a hiker but his relatives are into hitting the trails so he’s going to give it a try. “That’s my next foray,” he said.
