Letter to the Editor: Hosler tosses his hat into Mayoral race in Kearny Editor, Copper Basin News: My name is Sam Hosler, and because I love this town I am offering my name as a candidate for Mayor of Kearny in the primary election on March 13. I write to let everyone know a bit about me and about what I might offer as your mayor. I am a native of Arizona, born 66 years ago in Seligman. I went to high school in Winslow and was graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson in 1967. In response to a calling to ministry in the Episcopal Church, I

attended seminary in Ohio and upstate New York, and was ordained in Phoenix in 1970, just a few months after Carol and I were married. My pastor’s role took me to many places, working in churches large and small all over these wonderful United States. My special love was working in small congregations. Small towns and rural life suit me well. In 1997 Carol and I took the opportunity to purchase the home where we now live on Jamestown. For several years it was our vacation home until, in 2005, we both retired

and came here to live full time. We really enjoy this wonderful town and its people. Early this year some townspeople approached me to ask if I would consider submitting my name as a candidate. I gave this thought and prayer and decided to do so. I have never thought of myself in a political way, but wherever I have lived I have enjoyed being an active citizen, serving on juries, voting regularly, being active in service clubs and organizations. In Kearny I was pleased to serve on the board of our

health clinic (one year as president). Most of my activities, naturally, have been church related. I enjoy being a member of Church of the Good Shepherd, where so many of the people serve Kearny in so many ways. But now to a quick sketch of what I might bring as your mayor: Compared to other small towns in Arizona, Kearny is in an enviable position. Even in the midst of this almost-depression we have been weathering, the town government has remained stable and fiscally sound. Yes, money is tight. Yes,

the Kearny Golf Course and our town lake and, obviously, our business climate. My vision is to be positive and purposive, to explore linkages with ASARCO and Resolution Copper, to seek appropriate grants, and work cooperatively with the Town Council and the new Town Manager to make Kearny a more beautiful place, more desirable for winter visitors, new families, and retirees, and to provide more and better health care. I would like to be on TEAM KEARNY as your mayor. /s/ Sam Hosler

there are many things that need to be done. I hope to be an effective mayor by being diligent and by encouraging good processes in the making of all decisions by the members of Town Council. We will be choosing a new Town Manager. This is an important decision, for the manager is responsible for the whole administrative side of town government. Our citizens have been battered by declining home values, and foreclosures pepper the town. We are all concerned about our school system, matters of crime and drug use, the future for

McGuire announces intent to run for new LD 8 Barbara McGuire, previous four year lawmaker of LD23, announced her intention of a 2012 run for office. “McGuire, a moderate Democrat, business woman and Salvation Army Director with decades of service to rural Arizona communities announced her intention to run to supporters today from the new LD8 in the heart of the Copper Corridor,” said long time advisor, Tom Elliott.

McGuire’s expertise has been in natural resources as a ranking member in military affairs and public safety, community support, long term care and more. McGuire’s motto of EAR (efficient, accountable, responsive) government will continue as a guiding philosophy in policy to improve state and local economies, real estate recovery, education, growth and quality of life issues.

Copper Corridor to remain in CAC District One By Mila Lira Central Arizona College has been required to adjust the boundaries of the Pinal County Community College District Governing Board. This redistricting was also required to meet the Department of Justice requirements just as the County Board of Supervisors and State and Congressional districts were required to do. The majority of the changes to the district boundaries are on the western side of the county where there has been

tremendous growth in the San Tan Valley area and Maricopa. District One will consist of all of the Copper Corridor communities, parts of Florence, Eloy and Coolidge and has been designated as minority district. The minority district designation means that the district has the highest percentage of Hispanic Citizen Voting Age Population. SaddleBrooke will move out of District One and move into District Three. The PCCCD Governing

Board of directors decided earlier this month to move forward with two of the six plans that were presented by Lisa T. Hauser, an attorney with Gammage & Burnham PLC of Phoenix who specializes in election law. She and Douglas Johnson, president of the National Demographics Corporation in Glendale, California, have been retained by CAC to formulate the redistricting options. The consultants advised the governing board that maps two and three were the most likely to meet all the requirements as set forth by the Department of Justice. After the public has a chance to review the maps the PCCCD Governing Board has approved the plans they will be forwarded on to the County Board of Supervisors for approval. Once approved by the Board of Supervisors the plans will be submitted to the Department of Justice for final approval. The PCCCD Governing Board would like to encourage all residents and voters to and comment on them. You can view the maps directly at: http://bit. ly/y7uvIF .

Lobos, Miners tangle in scrimmage By Nolberto Waddell The Lobo and Miner baseball and softball teams got together to open the start of spring sports with a scrimmage and what a game they turned out to be on both fields. The Lobo baseball team broke out to an early lead over the Miners but with the pitching rule of only two innings allowed per pitcher, the game soon turned into a slugfest. The Lobos showed that they will be a team that cannot be taken lightly and if the arms hold up and produce as expected, this team just might make a return to the play-offs. The team will have senior leadership with Thomas Cabrera, Gabriel Encinas and Matthew Manriquez leading the way but the

team is still young with several juniors counted on to start. The Lobos will open the season with a trip to Florence to play in the Joe S. Padilla Invitational Baseball Tournament. The tournament starts on Wednesday, Feb. 29, but the Lobos are not scheduled to play until Thursday, March 1, when they take on the number one ranked team in the new A.I.A. Division III. The going does not get any easier the next day when they take on another Division III ranked team in the Snowflake High School Lobos in their first game of the day and finish up pool play later in the day with a game against another Division III team, the Coombs High School Coyotes. The outcome

of the pool games will determine if the Lobos will play in Saturday’s bracket portion of the tournament. The Lobos will play some tough competition but win or lose the experience will only make them that much tougher in the regular season. The Lady Lobo softball team took on the number seven ranked team in the A.I.A.’s Division IV, the San Manuel Lady Miners. The game was a battle with the Lady Miners taking advantage of some miscues by the Lady Lobos to score three early runs, two of them unearned. The Lady Lobos had a tough time with the Miner pitcher but their experience showed up as they battled back to score two runs on the Miners.

The Lady Lobos will put a young team on the field with three seniors starting and the rest of the starters coming from the junior and sophomore classes. The Lady Lobos will depend on the left arm of Lobo pitcher Demitria Boltarez to carry the pitching load with help coming from Marlisse Perez. The infield seems to be set with several returning players but the outfield will be a concern for the coaches with only one experienced player, Stephanie Chiquete, returning. The starting positions and batting order are still not set and the play of the Lady Lobos in this weekend’s tournament in Safford will show the coaches who wants to start in regular season play. The Lady Lobos, just like

Church of the Good Shepherd raised more than $750 for the Florence Food Bank, which distributes food in Kearny each month. The church held a community pancake dinner on Shrove Tuesday, Feb. 21, in Ray Hall. It was a joyful event with a Mardi Gras atmosphere, beads, wild colors, a few nominal “door prizes”, and lots of good conversation. The church coined a new name for their celebration: Kearny Gras. Shrove Tuesday is the Tuesday just before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday, which was Feb. 22 this year. During Lent, leading up to the celebration of Easter and Jesus’ Resurrection, many people in Christian churches give up rich foods. Shrove Tuesday was a time for making sweets to use up flour, sugar and fats in order to remove them from the house during the next six weeks. With the tasty treats in abundance, it often took on a party-like atmosphere. The all-you-can-eat pancakes served this past Tuesday were deliciously, light and fluffy. Adding the fund raiser to the celebration provided an even happier feeling to the event. With the current economic problems, the Florence Food Bank has been experiencing a difficult time meeting increased need with decreasing donations. Church of the Good Shepherd, with the help of the community in buying tickets and eating pancakes, will provide some assistance to this worthy agency.

Women’s Expo and Pioneer Days update 2012

By Rosalind Padilla Mark your calendar Saturday, March 10, for the Women’s Expo at the Hayden High School District office lobby. It is the second annual event for the Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce. What is a Women’s Expo? It is a daylong event featuring women who have ventured a step further from their regular jobs and gone out on their own to either work for themselves or have excelled in their current jobs. What is so important about this date? International Women’s Day is March 8 and recognized by women around the world and is in many countries as a National holiday. International Women’s Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; its history is the centuries old struggle of women to participate in society on equal footing with men. Many countries today still do not recognize equal rights for women. Wars have ended, czars have abdicated, working conditions in factories have changed because women have protested and even gone on strike for “Bread and Peace.”

This is the 100th anniversary of the organizing of International Women’s Day. Last year at this time Rev. Carol Hosler was in Cameroon, Africa and was a witness to the importance of this event. Women wore colorful dresses, held rallies, sang and danced for several days. She has some beautiful dresses from that experience. Today a central organizing principle of the work of the United Nations is that “no enduring solution to society’s most threatening social, economic and political problems can be found without the full participation and full empowerment of the world’s women.” At the local Women’s Expo which begins at 11 a.m. and continues through 6 p.m., you will find demonstrations, speakers, vendors, samples, drawings/prizes and business opportunities for an admission of only $3. Activities will be provided by Kim Garcia, Pretty Petals (formerly Balloons and Things) Flower arrangements 101; Joyleign Wormwood, Jolie Fille cosmetics; Mila Lira, economic growth; Nancy Hinojos, exercises; Martina

Burnam, mediocre meditation and hiking in Central Arizona; Angie Gomez, announcer at 104.5; Linda Norris, organization; Pioneer Days Queen contestants Fashion Show. Booths will include: Concessions by the HaydenWinkelman Little League; Veronica Bracamonte, Pampered Chef; Thomas Martinez, hair stylist and tips; Scentsy Candles; Watkins products; Weichert Realty, St. Vincent De Paul; Copper Community Action Board, Central Arizona College; La Cheveaux Boutique, Memory Works. The first 25 ladies get a free gift bag with samples, coupons and other great items. Pioneer Days is just around the corner. There are nine Queen candidates that will participate in their fashion show at the Expo at 4 p.m. They have been receiving pointers in cosmetics from Joyleign Wormwood and they will be going to La Cheveaux Boutique to pick out the outfits they will model. The contestants will also be giving their speeches at that time. The public is invited to attend this event. It is not a Women’s only activity.

Have you planned your float for Pioneer Days? The Theme is Rails and Trails – Celebrating Arizona 100 years. It is to your advantage to register early so the script describing your float can be prepared for the announcer on Alden Street. Applications can be picked up at the Kearny Town Hall. Volunteers are needed to help at the front entrance to Pioneer Park, to sell t-shirts at the Chamber booth or help with set up and take down. If you want to take an airplane ride over the Copper Basin tuck a few dollars away. We do not have the exact fare as of yet but it does cost more than a carnival ride. The view from the air is amazing because there are deep canyons and gorges that you would never expect to see. If you are a team roper, contact Rene Arbizo of R&R Productions. Gather together softball teams (a few high school baseball teams are gathering former teammates for team reunions). Horseshoe enthusiasts get ready for a tournament at the Elks. Pioneer Days offers something for everyone.

Griffith Mortuary, Superior Funeral Home have new owners By Vicki Clark Rob Bulman, the new funeral director for Griffith Mortuary and the Superior Funeral Home, discovered Arizona a few years back and just knew that someday he would move here. That opportunity came last summer when he and his wife Joyce purchased the two mortuaries located in Kearny and Superior. Rob was born and raised in North Dakota and Minnesota. He graduated from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science and has been working in the field for 16 years. He and his assistant, Anthony Davis, are both licensed funeral directors and offer a personalized approach for people at a very difficult time. “The business has changed in the last 15 years especially with cremation,” Rob said. “Funerals now are more like a celebration of life and we want to pay attention to the little things that families want and need.” Such needs could include anything from customized memorial cards, memory boxes and candles to specialty caskets. “A funeral is really for the living,” Rob said. “For the deceased, their journey is over and ours are still continuing. We try to make the process as easy as possible by treating the surviving people with respect right from the beginning when the families invite us into their own lives.” The two homes serve all areas around the state and will go anywhere with their services. They also offer every kind of funeral service from the very simple to the elaborate. “Even though our location is rural, we can provide anything and everything that the city facilities have to offer,” Rob said. Another service that the business offers is a pre-paid

(Vicki Clark photo) funeral plan. “A pre-paid plan allows individuals and families to make payments and the biggest advantage to this process is being able to take the financial strain away from the survivors,” Rob said. “It also allows the families to know as to what are the last wishes of the deceased.” Rob also wanted to put out the word that any pre-paid policies previously secured with either mortuaries will be honored. The new technology of today allows a whole new world and Rob said by accessing their websites, people will be able to see what they have as to services provided as well an opportunity to offer condolences online and

review obituaries, either current or previous and an archive is accessible Griffith Mortuary is located at 101 Johnston Drive in Kearny, the phone number is (520) 363-5353, website is and you can e-mail Rob at Superior Funeral Home is located at 379 South Ray Road in Superior. The phone number is (520) 689-9692 and the website is www. And the e-mail address is the same as above. Rob said in closing that he is often asked how he can he deal with death? His response, “It’s part of the job I chose, but I don’t really deal with death, I deal with the living.”

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona

Pastor’s Corner: Thinking Toward Easter By Nina Yardley Church of the Good Shephers Starting with last Wednesday, Feb. 22 – Ash Wednesday, Christians have entered into the time of Lent. Lent is all about leading up to and preparing ourselves for Easter. Easter is the most important day of the Christian year. Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus, Son of God, we have been granted grace – mercy and forgiveness – for the sins in our lives. Easter is so important that we want to spend a special period of time leading up to this momentous day. That period of time is Lent. The name “Lent” comes from an Anglo Saxon (old English) word, “lenctem” which was descriptive of the lengthening of the days and meant Spring. Lent is a period of 40 Days plus six Sundays from Ash Wednesday to Easter. Forty is an important number in the Bible. Jesus spent 40 days fasting in the wilderness after his baptism; both Moses and Elijah spent 40 days alone with God during their ministries; and the Israelites spent 40 years wandering in the desert because they didn’t trust God. The six Sundays are not counted as “Lent” since they are considered to be “little Easters” and should be spent being thankful for our forgiveness. Lent should be serious but not funereal. We should think about God’s mercy and love and how we are to respond to it. The 40 days of Lent are a time for Christians to be more intentional in their focus on God. Some Christians fast

during this period of time. A fast can be giving up anything which controls your life: meat, soft drinks, apps on iPhones, Facebook, activities like attending car races or getting your nails done. It can be a good time to simplify your life, slowing activities, using less gas, or using fewer prepared foods. A fast can also include adding something to your life which would develop your relationship with God, like daily Bible reading or focusing on being thankful rather than asking for something during prayer. Adding something to your life usually means you have to let other time wasters go for that period, thus it is a fast. The point of the fasting is that since these are things which are large in your life, each time you think about the item from which you are fasting, you should stop to say a prayer or consider how God has provided you with everything you have, including the hope for your future. The end result is hopefully a closer relationship with God and a loosening of the ties to things which have become center stage in our lives, rather than God. While Lent can make us sad at looking at the price Jesus paid for our forgiveness, we also find hope and happiness in looking forward to the Resurrection. That sadness and happiness balance leads to a day of great joy in belonging to Jesus. I pray that your time of thinking about Easter and preparing for Jesus’ Resurrection will be a good time of spending more time with and getting closer to God.

ARE YOU SEARCHING?? Many are searching for the TRUTH in regards to life’s tough questions ... Are you?
