LETTER TO THE EDITOR Why destroy something as great as the Arizona Trail? On Feb. 19, 2014. we noticed several vehicles parked at the Florence-Kelvin trailhead on the Arizona Trail. The people who concern themselves with developing the local economy will be heartened to know that none of them were from Arizona; they included vehicles from Wisconsin, Montana, Colorado, Alberta and British Columbia.  These kinds of visitors, out enjoying a day on the trail, take very little from the area and likely leave only money.   It was disheartening to see that someone had put about 12 rounds into the distinctive metal Arizona Trail sign recently installed there, as well as many more into the

Griffith Mortuary

other trailhead signs. These signs were purchased by a grant from Arizona State Parks, and installed largely by volunteers, who drove many miles to each site and worked the day to install them.  Being of unique design and construction, replacement will be very expensive.   This senseless destruction elicits two emotions.  The first is rage that anyone would destroy something so senselessly.  The second takes a little time and reflection to experience, and that is sympathy for the person who did it.    The Arizona Trail connects deserts, mountains, canyons, communities and people.  It and the facilities that accompany it exist to a great extent through the volunteer efforts of a community of generous, publicminded people who share a love and passion for the beauty of Arizona.  It is a wonderful, friendly, enriching

Exploring the Past of Crescent/Santos Ranch By Rosalind Padilla Special to the CBN

As a young teacher in Hayden (1962) new to the area with no knowledge of the history of the Copper Basin area, it was a puzzle to me that students at Stephens Trailer Park and Santos Ranch were part of the Hayden School District. Hayden was eight miles away and Kearny Schools were one mile. It was many years later that it finally came to me that Kearny was “the new kid in town”. It was closer to go to school in Hayden than ride the curvy Ray Road to attend school in Ray. There are several points to keep in mind as you read this account. Highways 77 and 177 did not exist as we know them today. The road from Globe to Oracle Junction was narrow, rocky, loomed high on the mountain edges and dropped to river level. The Dudleyville Road is often referred to as the Old Tucson Highway. On the other side (Hwy 177) the road from Superior curved up, down and around the mountain edges, past Ray/Sonora and went to Kelvin, then near the area the railroaders call Ray Junction; the Old Ray Road crossed the tracks and curved up the hill to what is now called New Santos Ranch. Why New Santos Ranch? When Ray and Sonora residents moved out some of the families moved to the area called Santos Ranch. Their houses were even built on raised foundations. After several extreme floods they were all relocated to the present area. Traveling the area today you cross Hwy 177 (non existent prior to 1953) and travel up and down and around curves following the rugged terrain. The Old Ray Road comes out at Bidegain Acres, crosses near the dump and heads down towards the river and railroad tracks. The road runs behind Ray Schools and between the Church of the Good Shepherd and the houses on the 500 block. It continues along what is now Hartford coming out at the 100 block of Hartford. The road to the Kearny Lake

is the Old Ray Road and crosses Steamboat Wash past the cemetery to the rifle range and along the area called Crescent Ranch. If you were here in 1983 and 1993 when Crescent Ranch and Hwy 177 was under water and you needed to get to work or school, the vehicles were parked and those courageous enough walked along the Crescent Road to get to the other side where school buses or other vehicles waited. The area now known as Crescent Ranch was settled prior to the 1860s by the Holliday and James families. Bob Branaman purchased their deeds and on many maps of the Kearny area the name Branaman appears. It was near the edge of what is now the Kearny Golf Course. It may have been considered a small settlement and had a school where all the young children in the area went. The school may also be referred to as the Hayes School. A young man by the name of Josiah Anderson moved to

Arizona in 1860 and by 1914-1937 he started purchasing 1,080 acres of land. This was in addition to what he already had from pioneer ranchers who had settled the area. Old timers may remember or be related to some of the well known names who ranched the area. They are Bob Branaman, Ed Fitzhugh, Lou Gibson, Hayes, John Nelson and Harry Blevins. Headquarters for the Crescent Ranch was on 190 acres and was nestled in the Crescent. The Lower Ranch, where the cow hands and their families lived, was three miles from headquarters along the Old Ray Road. It followed to where Kearny now nestles and extended east and south across the river on their newly acquired land. The land already had barns and a stone house that were used as line shacks when rounding up cattle. The wife of Josiah held her ground when she named the ranch Crescent Ranch but did not get her way when she tried to name Continued on page 11

Annual Women’s Expo in Hayden draws a good crowd

By Nina Crowder Copper Basin News

The Women’s Expo held at the Hayden High School was an exciting day filled with food, fun, learning, laughing, shopping and prizes! The vendors were in good spirits and enjoyable to talk with. The concession stands had good food to keep everyone happy and the money will benefit Martina Borquez’s school trip to Washington DC. Over the course of the day approximately 150 people cycled through the Women’s Expo, prizes were drawn every hour that consisted of IPOD Speaker System, new blanket, flavored candle set, Watkins Gift Basket, ZORT t-shirt and many other items. Thank you to the event sponsors: ASARCO, Resolution Copper, Ray Federal Credit Union, Gordon’s Market and IGA Family and Friends and Food. It would be more difficult to have such events without the benefits of these sponsors. Among the speakers, Martina Burnam spoke about Mediocre Meditation and how important it is for us to take time to relax. The benefits of meditation can promote a sense of relaxation, calmness, control and happiness. One of the greatest outcomes of meditation is learning to go with the flow and allowing tranquility into your life. Meditation techniques are designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. Let meditation clear your mind and ease health issues. There are many positive benefits to having meditation in our lives. Pick up a brochure, look online or ask a doctor about meditation and give it a chance. Larry Ramirez spoke

to the group about the importance of volunteerism. How we can help out in our communities? We don’t

have to be a volunteer every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., but even simple acts like cleaning up the street we live

on once a week or taking a senior citizen to a doctor’s appointment are not only acts of kindness but acts of volunteerism and they help other people. There are many clubs or non-profit organizations that are terrific ways to volunteer. Some organizations to consider are the Food Bank, Rotary, Lions, Community Outreach, Fire Department, Family First, Charlotte’s Way Rescue, Copper Community Action Board, town council and many others. Think of something you like to do and see if there is a way to work volunteerism into that. Once you find your niche you will be happy you did and so will the people you help.

The Bearcats baseball team has won four games in-a-row after losing its opener to Division III state title contender Estrella Foothills, 3 – 2. It

March 12, 2014

Bearcats wins four in a row after opener loss to Estrella Foothills is a solid start for team that expects to go a long way in the Division IV state championship playoffs later this season. The ‘Cats competed in the Joe S. Padilla Baseball Tournament last

weekend. Their only loss of the 4-day tournament was a heartbreaker as the Wolves scored 2 runs on a walk-off homerun. The ‘Cats gave an undefeated Wolves’ team their toughest competition of the tournament. Some pre-season rankings had the Wolves ranked as high as second in Division III. “We knew going into the game we were going to face a pretty solid team,” Ray head coach Rene Pacheco said.

“Our kids battled. We gave up a pitch that was probably a little too (good) and the kid drove it out to straightaway centerfield.” Destry Yocum started against Estrella Foothills and pitched an outstanding game. He allowed only 3 hits and struck out three Wolves’ hitters. “I was happy,” Pacheco said of his team’s performance. “I thought our kids competed. I was very pleased and I didn’t feel like we were intimidated.”

In their next game versus Hayden, the ‘Cats took out their frustration of the heartbreaking loss in the opener. They defeated the Lobos 13 – 3 to start their winning streak. Jacob Pace got the start and pitched a 3-hitter to earn the win. Pace allowed 2 runs but both were unearned. The Bearcats’ hitters were patient at the plate as they drew eight walks in the game. They pounded out eight hits and scored in every inning.

Seth Harmon, Derek Pacheco, Austin Huffman, and Johnny Wernett all doubled in the game. Wernett, Harmon, Pace, and Douglas McPeak each had 2 RBIs. Defensively, the Bearcats committed 2 errors, which drew the attention of their coach. “At times today we took a little too much time on some ground balls,” Pacheco said after the game. “I just think our approach wasn’t where it

needed to be.” There is little to complain about after going 4 – 1 in the tournament. And plenty of time to work out any early season jitters. This is a team that expects to win the ultimate prize at season’s end. “I expect to go all the way and hopefully win a championship this year,” junior Seth Harmon answered when asked what this year’s team is capable of.

Four-year varsity player Dominic Bravo was asked to compare this team to other varsity teams he’s played on. “This is the best one,” Bravo said without hesitating. “This is probably the team that is going to take it all.”

Bearcats’ softball team is talented and experienced By Andrew Luberda Copper Basin News

The Lady Bearcats reached the second-round of the Division IV State Championship last year with as many as 10 freshman and sophomores on their roster. With a number of those players returning this season, the ‘Cats expect to ad-

vance further this season. “Absolutely,” answered first-year head coach Rikki Galka when asked if she expects the team to improve on last season’s results. The ‘Cats return a total of 13 players from last season. The 2014 roster breaks down by class as follows: 8 seniors, 3 juniors, 7 sophomores, and

2 freshmen. After experiencing success last year, Coach Galka expects the team to pick up where it left off. According to Galka, a simple approach will get the ‘Cats where they want to be at the end of the season. “(We have) to know what the play is for each

pitch and get the job done,” she said. “Each practice and each game we (increase) our level of play. We want to play our best daily.” Tanya Reidhead and Monica Meza will serve as varsity assistants this season. The ‘Cats opened their season on March 4 at Gilbert Classical Academy.

Lady Bearcats crush Spartans in opener By Andrew Luberda Copper Basin News

The Ray Bearcats’ softball team started its season with a lopsided victory over Gilbert Classical Academy, 31 – 1. It

was a great start to the season for a team expected to contend for a state championship. The ‘Cats scored 18 runs in the first inning against the inferior Spartans and

never looked back. The only question would be if the Bearcats could preserve the shutout, but the Spartans were able to score a run in the third-inning. The victory was a promising start

for a Bearcats’ team that is state title contender. They’ll continue to build on the good start with four games this week. After a game at Show Low on March 11, the ‘Cats will play a double-header

at San Carlos on March 14 followed by a game at Salt River on March 15. The first game of the double-header begins at 4 p.m. The game versus Salt River begins at 1 p.m.

Kearny Koyotes getting ready for the Pinal County Fair Members of the Kearny Koyotes 4-H Club will be at 11-Mile Corner Fairgrounds next week for four days of competition and exhibition. The 4-Hers will take part in the Junior Livestock Show that is held in conjunction with the Pinal County Fair which runs March 19 through 23. The Junior Livestock Program provides many worthwhile experiences and opportunities for Pinal County’s 4-H, FFA and Association members. Specific objectives include: • To teach responsibilities to junior livestock exhibitors in the caring of market animals. • To teach skills and good habits regarding proper feeding, health care, fitting and showing of market animals. • To provide junior livestock exhibitors a program that will be both educational and enjoyable. • To offer a learning program with emphasis on success,

but not dominated by competition. • To promote an attitude of sharing knowledge among exhibitors with other exhibitors, older and younger, and with the entire family. • To teach and encourage safe handling practices at all time, when working with or showing a market animal. 4-Hers from the Kearny Club have entries this year in swine, carcass swine, carcass goat and show veal. Live competition includes Market, Showmanship and Skill-a-Thon. Swine project leader is Zane Bingham and Patti Bingham is the community leader. The Livestock Auction will be held Saturday, March 22. If you would like to help a 4-Her, add-ons are still available. Contact the Binghams at 363-5956 or at the fair for information. All donations are tax deductible.

Ray Junior High Softball record two more wins By Dan Hinojos Special to the CBN

The Tigers of Globe came into town Monday to face the Ray Bearcats for their second game of the season. The Bearcats started where they left off against Mt. View by kicking off the first inning with 6 runs, followed by 1 run in the second inning, and 3 runs in the third inning leading to a 10-run ruled shortened game. At the end of four innings the score was 10-0. The Bearcat pitching and defense was dominate this game, not giving up a hit through four innings. Starting on the mound was Daniella (6K, 1W, 0 H) for three innings, and closing was Danni Monatano (2K, 0W, 0 H) for one inning. Offensively the Bearcats were led by Ema Alavarado (2-2, Dbl, 1 RBI), Naomi Hing (2-3, 2 RBI), Danni Montano (2-3, Dbl, 2

RBI), and Tara Lorona (2-3, Dbl, 4 RBI). Game ball went to Daniella Hinojos for P/ Defense. The Vandals of Miami came into town Wednesday for the third game of the season. The Bearcat bats still hot from Monday’s game started off the first inning scoring 5 runs, followed by 5 runs in the second inning led by an Ema Alvarado home run. The third inning the bats went cold only scoring 1 run. The fourth inning the Bearcats only scored 2 runs while the Vandals scored 2 runs in the third inning and 1 run in the fourth inning led by cleanup hitter Dee Spurgeon. The Bearcats woke up in the fifth and final inning scoring 5 runs to end the game with the score 18-3. Offensively the Bearcats were led by Ema Alvarado (3-4, Dbl, HR, 5 RBI), Julie Meza (2-3, Triple, 2 RBI),

RANCH

Continued from Page 4 the lower ranch El Rio Vista. Josiah named it D 3 Rocker. It is interesting to note that the Kearny laundromat and the RV Park are named Rio Vista. Charlotte Santos Lorona loaned me a book entitled Bridle Wise written by Lucille Stienke Anderson. Lucille grew up in Hayden and married John Anderson in 1940. John was already running the ranch that his mother had named Crescent. The ranch house was adobe with weathered unpainted wood, and a corrugated tin roof, and was referred to as headquarters. While the lower ranch was for the ranch hands and their families. There have been many ranches along the Gila River; some can be seen when traveling down Upton or Tilbury in Kearny. You can look across toward the mountains and see those ranches currently in operation. Many families have come and gone as the years have past and names listed above are not the only ranchers to work the land since 1860. By 1948 the Anderson holdings were 2,560 acres of land plus 30,000 leased. Cattle, cotton, milo, and barley were produced on the land, ASARCO eventually purchased the land and now leases it out. The Southern Pacific Railroad built a railway through the Anderson property to haul ore from Ray Mine to the Hayden Mill. There were passenger trains that also used the tracks and shipping corrals were built along the way for ranchers to get their beef to market on cattle cars. At that time it was a multiple use railroad. It was mentioned briefly and rather insignificantly that a man from Scottsdale came to the lower ranch (now Kearny) to ride horses and get a feel for what a cowboy does

all day. He was employed by Del Webb. One can only guess that he enjoyed that week so much that he will remember it as a wonderful experience. Could it be that when time came to consider where Ray Sonora people would eventually live that the area of lower ranch came to this man’s mind and therefore Kearny came to be? Lucille Anderson enjoyed going to the Santos Truck Garden for fresh vegetables. She recalls that growing up in Hayden she would hear the creak of the Santos wagon wheels as he drove through town. Mr. Santos would yell, “RRRRRIPE spinach.” Now that she lived close to his ranch she would drive there to get her fresh vegetables. She did not have to pay for the vegetables because her husband John and Santos shared the services of a very fine bull. From her house to Santos she would have to traverse five springy gates of barbed wire and return home avoiding the gates by driving to Brannaman, crossing railroad tracks and turn onto the main Ray Road. She would pass a white house and well maintained yard where Pinal County kept their equipment for maintaining the dirt highway between Ray Copper Mine and Hayden Mill. Bob and Myrtle Muller lived there. A very young Arnaldo Santos worked at the headquarters and currently lives in Hayden. He is mentioned throughout Lucille’s accounts of life at Crescent Ranch. Find out what it was like on Santos Ranch from Arnold Santos and Charlotte Santos Lorona next week. Pioneer Days parade is Saturday, March 22 and all ranchers, cowboys, or those who identify with this article are urged to enter the parade.

Daniella Hinojos (1-3, 2 RBI), Tara Lorona (1-3, 2 RBI), Rosalinda Garcia (1-1), and Danni Montano (1-2). Starting and closing on the mound wasDaniella Hinojos (6K, 0W, 0 ER) for five innings, and relieving was Danni Montano (1K, 3W, 1 ER) for one inning. Game ball went to the whole Bearcat team for total team effort.

The Bearcats will take two weeks off from games and return to the field to face the Hayden Lobos in Hayden, Wednesday, March 26. Editor’s Note: In last week’s CBN, two of the Ray Jr. Lady Bearcats’ names were misspelled: Janae Ruiz and Amee Kenyon. The CBN regrets the error.

PASTOR’S CORNER

about telling them. Do you know someone like me? Aren’t they exasperating! As I said last week, it is obvious that we have a Maker. Someone created our world and us. So the question is, “Has He communicated with us?” My answer is, “Yes!” If we consider every possible way God could have communicated with humanity, it seems that He has done so. If we believe the Bible, then

we can say that He has programmed information in our minds; He has spoken through manifestations and visions; and He has put communication into written form. The crux of the matter, however, is whether we or not we should believe the Bible. There are three lines of evidence for the contention that the Bible is actually God’s

Gil is an advisor on the Children’s Advisory Board at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and has had physical ailments to overcome in his life. He continues to keep a positive outlook on life. There was a talk and demonstration on how to run an eBay business. Lots of information was shared from how to start an eBay account, how to list items, getting paid and shipping items. Business cards were handed out for additional questions. It was an informative day. The vendors that helped make this event successful included Watkins Natural, Pampered Chef, Central

Java Coffee gave out free samples of coffee and tea, ZORT gave out glow necklaces, Avon, Watkins and Melaleauca all gave out samples, there were even Jack Daniel’s Cupcakes, there was not a shortage of things to experience. As enjoyable as the vendors and speakers were there was an added bonus with a fashion show by the Pioneer Day Queen Contestant’s. All the young girls did a fantastic job at entertaining a large audience with the

fashion show. There was something for everyone and the attendees seemed to have a good time. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the Copper Basin Women’s Expo!
