They eloped into Mexico, the first time and then nearly had a shotgun wedding two weeks later. Soon after, they would move to Arizona, where they would raise their family of two boys, Bryant Lee Pitner Jr. (Suzanne) and Dave Garrett Pitner (Vanessa), and a daughter Wanda Kaye Jean Pitner Hopp (Shane). She was also blessed with grandchildren Bradlee Pitner, Tonja Meadows, Benjamin Meadows, Garrett Pitner (Angel), Justin Pitner, Tyson Pitner, Shannon Pitner, and Logan Hopp. She was also blessed, again, by a great-grandchild, Chloe Meadows. She will be greatly missed, but always in our hearts. A small private service will be held, at a later date.

Tri Community which includes San Manuel, Oracle and Mammoth is 37 Miles from the nearest hospital. Even when the new hospital in Oro Valley was built, many critical services were only available at a trauma center. A trauma center is a hospital equipped to provide comprehensive emergency medical services to patients suffering traumatic injuries. Trauma centers grew into existence out of the realization that traumatic injury is a disease process unto itself requiring specialized and experienced multidisciplinary treatment and specialized resources. According to the Center for Disease Control, injuries are the leading cause of death for children and adults ages 1-44. The leading causes of trauma are motor vehicle accidents, falls, and assaults. You often hear of someone who is alive and healthy today as a result of a quick and effective response to a medical emergency? Think of the number of times highway 76 has been closed to allow the landing of a medical helicopter. Living or traveling miles away from the nearest advanced medical facility, or in some places, any medical facility; you or your loved one will likely need Air Medical Transport in a life or limb threatening emergency. Even with medical insurance, that air medical transport can leave you with significant out-ofpocket expenses, burdening your finances and family, Cost for a helicopter transport can run over tens of thousands dollars. Arizona Lifeline serves Southern Arizona with medical helicopters. They’ve designed a program to either supplement your insurance with payment or even cover the cost if one is uninsured. For just $60 A YEAR (less than 17 cents a day) you can cover everyone residing in your household. There are NO EXCLUSIONS for membership; even if one is uninsured, or has a pre-existing condition, they can be covered, and will have NO out-of-pocket expense. When one joins Arizona Lifeline, you automatically become a member in the AirMedCare Network, the largest network of its kind in America. Members of the AirMedCare network enjoy those same benefits when flown by any of the over 180 medical aircraft serving 24/7 and strategically located across 27 states. When you become an Arizona Life- Line Member you will be supporting the healthcare needs of your family, friends and neighbors. As a member of the AirMedCare Network, you become part of the ever expanding family of over one million members, protecting communities through a vast network of Air Ambulances across the nation. Arizona Life Line has a long history of excellence in patient care and customer service. The dedication and knowledge of the Medical Flight Crews and Aviation Team are without equal, and is exhibited daily by their continued involvement in the communities in which they serve.

Pinal Rural Fire Rescue to make presentation to Town of Mammoth Pinal Rural Fire Rescue will be presenting a program to the Mammoth Town Council on Mar. 21 for PRFR to provide advanced life support first-response Emergency Medical Services to the citizens of Mammoth free of charge. Despite rumors to the contrary, there is no fee whatsoever to any citizen we respond to help. In fact, it costs PRFR $20 every time they are dispatched by Rural Metro/Southwest. What we do care about is that we have the ability to save lives with a higher level of care. This will also create a “continuity of care” since it would be a paramedic

releasing a patient to the paramedic on Tri-City Meds ambulance. This in no way affects Tri-City Ambulance because they are still the transport service for Mammoth. It is a legal right under Arizona revised statutes for a city or town to contract for public safety coverage in however they consider best for the citizens they are charged to protect, because there are times when an ambulance can be delayed. This new system will allow PRFR Paramedics to stabilize a patient until the arrival of an ambulance. Because of call volumes in the Tri-City area, there are times when Tri-City

can be delayed. An average response time for Tri-City is 16 minutes if they are coming from San Manuel. This can be delayed if they are already on another call and a backup ambulance is coming from Oro Valley or Tucson. The difference in care is tremendous. Mammoth Fire District only has 48-hour trained first responders that are not authorized to do anything but take vital signs and basic first aid. Then, they must wait for the ambulance. They are also one of the very few fire departments in the State of Arizona that has no EMT’s, not even PRFR, Page 5

In support of the Mammoth Fire Department I am writing this open letter to the people of Mammoth, AZ in support of the Volunteer Fire Department of Mammoth. Rudy Burrola has been a volunteer fireman with all the certifications for fire fighting and is currently Fire Chief. He has been a volunteer for 37 years. Both Rudy and his wife Sue are active in the daily operations of the Department. Rudy was the past “Lead Man” for the city workers and

left the position due to the harassment, paid suspensions, and unpaid suspensions by the city PWD David Garcia. The city of Mammoth has lost a qualified Lead Man and also has lost him during the day when he was on call for fire department calls. I have listed these facts only because people in Mammoth should know the facts. Rene Romo has been a volunteer for over 40 years and has all the

Your neighborhood has been rezoned or hadn't you heard? Right now, government officials have to publish their intentions in the newspaper, including where they intend to build facilities you don’t want down the block. But that will change if some politicians get their way. They want to put public notices online instead, buried on some little-seen, rarely visited government website. Don’t let the government keep you in the dark.

Tell lawmakers to keep public notices in the public’s eye.

qualifications for fire fighting and is currently Assist. Fire Chief. I have only listed two fire fighters but the whole crew holds many certificates for fire fighting. I have attended several meetings and the meetings are fun and informative. The treasures report is given by Sue and every dime is accounted

for. I have not witnessed this at the City Council Meetings. The appointed position of Fire Dept. Administrator is Mr. Rick Sanchez. Mr. Sanchez does an excellent job of conducting Fire Dept. meetings and business. People are urged to attend a meeting and see these volunteers in action.

Instead of the city of Mammoth causing problems for the men and women that volunteer their time and put their life in jeopardy with every fire call, we should show our support and thank them for the many years of volunteer services and the lives they have saved over the years.

How many citizens would want to monitor a radio 24-7 for all police and emergency call for 40 years? Talk about dedication to their community! /s/ Donald Jones Concerned Mammoth resident Comments to:

New community liaison introduced at Triad By John Hernandez At the TRIAD meeting last Wednesday, John Tameron was introduced as the new Pinal County Attorney’s Office Community Liaison, who was hired last month.

He is a retired fireman from the Superior Volunteer Fire Department and is currently a member of the Superior City Council. John will be working with many groups and organizations in Pinal

County communities. The TRIAD members discussed the home alone installer; the upcoming quarterly TRIAD meeting, Oaks Festival and the health fair.

San Manuel swimmers compete at State Championship meet The Arizona Age Group State Championship Swim Meet was held March 7-10 at the Phoenix Swim Club Brophy Swimming Complex, where Evan Apuron (9), Riley Stewart (9), and Gianna Sweeney (11) achieved qualifying times at USA Swimming sanctioned meets to allow them to compete at the meet for swimmers ages 14 and under. Sea Lions Head Coach Alex Gort expressed pride in the fact that all three swimmers were at the young end of the their respective age groups and this year provided valuable experience for the future. Swimmers were allowed to swim up to a maximum of six events at the meet, providing they achieved the tough qualifying times. Evan Apuron qualified for every event in the 10

and Under age group, but had to choose which six to swim at the meet. In the championship meet format, swimmers swim preliminaries in the morning, with the top eight advancing to the Championship Finals and the next eight places advancing to the consolation finals. On his first morning of competition, Apuron swam the 50 yard Butterfly and qualified for the championship finals and qualified in the 100 yard Freestyle for the consolation finals. In the evening finals session, Apuron had the race of his life, finishing third in the 50 Butterfly with a time of 32.39 seconds. He was awarded his bronze medal by Olympic Swimming Champion Misty Hyman. Later during the evening, he finished 11th in the 100 yard Freestyle. During the Saturday morning preliminary session, he qualified for the consolation finals in the 200 yard IM and finished 21st in the 50 yard Backstroke.

Later in the 200 IM consolation finals, he swam a tough race and finished 13th with a time of 2:49.49. During Sunday Preliminaries, he qualified both the 100 yard IM and the 100 yard Butterfly for the Consolation Finals. A couple of great swims in the finals put Apuron in 11th place in the 100 yard IM (1:18.09) and 9th place in the 100 yard Butterfly with an amazing time of 1:13.47. “Wow,” was how Coach Alex Gort summarized his performance at the meet. In several of his events, Apuron was the fastest 9 year old swimmer. Gianna Sweeney qualified in four events in the 1112 age group, but was unable to participate in her first event, the 400 yard Individual Medley (IM), due to illness. Sweeney swam the 200 yard IM, 50 yard Breaststroke, and 100 yard Breaststroke finishing 43rd, 48th, and 41st respectively. Sweeney showed lots of determination by giving it her best while it was

evident that she had not fully recovered from her illness during the week. Riley Stewart entered the maximum number of events allowed in the 10 and Under age group. Stewart swam the three longest events in his age group, the 500 yard Freestyle, the 200 yard Freestyle and the 200 yard IM, finishing 22nd, 27th and 38th respectively to start off the meet. Later he showed he could also sprint, finishing 39th in the 50 yard Backstroke, 40th in the 50 yard Breaststroke, and 26th in the 100 yard Breaststroke.

Lady Miners look for improvement in 2013 campaign By Frank Smith The San Manuel Lady Miners will look for improvement in the 2013 campaign. Fourteen-year head coach Deanne Brewer, along with assistants Brian Brewer, Bethany Smith, and Angela Gillis, will look to improve on last year’s 9 – 3 Section record. This years’2013 Lady Miners squad consists of Seniors Analisa Estrada – 3B/OF; Angel Darby – 1B/3B/OF; Juniors Mackenzie White – 1B; Angelica Zuniga – CF; Sophomores Mireya Tamayo – 2B; Alyssa Cuellar – SS/3B/P; Crystal

Sanchez – 1B/OF; Felicia Medina – C/3B/SS ; Freshmen Nicole Encinas – P/OF; Ashley Vargas – 1B/ OF; Mariah McBride - C/ SS; Lyana Waddell - P/3B/ SS. “We have a very young yet talented team,” head coach Brewer said. “Most of our players can play in multiple positions, allowing flexibility in our lineup.” The team lost last year’s starting shortstop Kadi Monfred due to an ACL tear and Alyssa Cuellar broke her ankle in a softball tournament the weekend before the season started. Alyssa is hoping to return

within the next two weeks. The Lady Miners also lost a few graduating seniors: left and center fielders Alexis Garcia and Rikki Dominguez, as well as starting pitcher Emmy Lou Clark. “We have a lot of work to do in the outfield, but we are confident that the girls will be able to do a great job out there,” Brewer said. The Lady Miners took on St. Augustine, competed in the Wickenburg Invitational, and hosted Empire. San Manuel traveled to Hayden on Tuesday and will make the trip to Globe today for a 4 p.m. start.

Copper Classic draws many to San Manuel By Parrish Traweek Special to the Miner San Manuel and the Tri-Community have a long history in off road motorcycle riding and racing. There was a time that one in every five homes had either a dirtbike, three wheeler, quad or off road vehicle. In the late ‘60s, there was a hill climb and off road track in Mammoth wash, the first big wash east of the highway as you enter Mammoth. In the early ‘70s, San Manuel had a sanctioned motocross track that ran several years south of town. It had bleachers an announcing tower and several other structures. Many riders including Carlos Serrano, a rider recently inducted into the Arizona Sport Hall of Fame and a multi time World Grand Prix winner, cut his teeth on the San Manuel Motocross track. The community also has a legacy of local racers with names like Cliff Hagan, the McDade brothers, John Person, Robby Velasquez, Keven Armstrong, Jerry Kyle and many others. In 1991, the American Desert Racing association (ADRA) held the first long distance desert race in San Manuel. The race was 100 miles long and was a high speed course. The course went east of the town and the majority of it was on Magma property. Just as it is today, these races were staged out of the Gardener Middle School fields. These races went several years and included a few full factory world class riders. Garth Sweetland riding for Factory Husqvarna and later Kawasaki, won the race one year and Dustry Abbott, Factory KTM and now a Kawasaki rider, won

the race a few times. In the early 2000s, the Arizona motorcycle racer association (AMRA) began hosting races here again. These races are much more technical to ride with much slower speeds. The courses now are northwest of town. Through the years, there have been several different formats for the races including an Enduro format where there were several timed sections with transfer sections between and also Hare Scramble format such as was hosted in San Manuel this weekend. This race format has the riders start racing at the drop of the flag until they cross the finish line. This year there were several classes racing. The AA class in the professionals used Blue number plates with white numbers; the A class, expert, used red number plates with white numbers; the B class is intermediate and they used yellow number plates with white numbers; and the C class is beginner, using green number plates with white numbers. Each class is broken down by either age or the size of the motorcycle. To start the race each rider lines up in a row with the class and group they are in. The fastest groups start first and it works down from there. This year there was a one minute separation between row starts. Officials reported that there were over 30 rows with 152 riders not including minicycles. The course this year was approximately 28 miles long which included lots of rocks, single track trails, two track roads, sand washes and a last lap special section for all A and B riders that went down a waterfall. Speed

average was around 20 mph with some long 80 mph plus straights. And lots of cactus. The average overall lap time was around 1.2 hour. The local riders had an advantage, although there is a rule about no pre-riding the course two weeks prior to the race. This allows the track crew to make changes without anyone knowing. The AA, A, and B riders were required to ride three

laps and the C riders rode two laps. As the race progresses the course gets rougher. Large braking bumps or whoops not unlike large wash board on a dirt road form, which really makes it tough. In a race like this the racers are looking for three results. First, riders want to do well in their class. Second, riders want to place well in their division (AA, B, ETC) and third, riders want to

place well in overall results against all the other races. Saturday I had a gentleman ask me at my age (a couple of years shy of a half century) what preparation it took for me to race. Two months ago I decided to race San Manuel. Years ago I was pretty involved in off road racing. I even overalled a few races in the ‘90s. Because I hadn’t raced in a couple of years and I had

no way to gauge my speed or endurances, I entered a race in Tucson six weeks ago and to my surprise I did very well. Although this was great I knew my speed was way down, but my endurance was pretty good. I’ve been riding my bicycle a couple of hundred miles a week for a few years and on the off days doing distance running as well as going to the GYM and circuit

desert training five times a week. When I decided to race two months ago I started drinking a gallon of water a day and dropped all iced tea and soda. My weakness is Mexican food and rather than stop eating it I just cut way back on the amount I took in and I also became more selective trying to stay away from fried food. I also upped my amount of fruit, veggies and protein intake. The last two things were mental preparation and setting goals. To do well in any sport you must be focused. It’s amazing with age how I can think about three things at once but I can’t truly concentrate on any one thing for a long period. The past few years have been tough. Losing my wife to cancer, raising kids alone and trying to keep my business alive have been challenging. So I really worked on concentration. The last thing was reasonable goals. I figured a top three in my class and top 15 overall were good reasonable goals. Last month I decided to race one more time for final preparation. There was a local race in Globe that would be great practice. On the first lap a rider in front of me hit a tree which fell into me causing me to hit the ground hard. When I got up I knew I was hurt. I had lots of pain down my inner left leg and a pulling pain below my waist line. Anytime I coughed or laughed it hurt bad, I had a hernia. At this point I figured San Manuel was out although I could ride pain free as long as I stood up and didn’t put my legs down. Friday night before the race I decided with my son’s help to race. For just a local race this

may sound like a lot but it’s what I do. This year there were riders from both in and out of state. There were also several local riders including Dustin Raffensparger: open A; Shawn Barney: 40+ B; Kyle Craighill: 200B; Broc Traweek: 200B; Darla King: women C; Blane Nelson: 40+C; Jered Nelson: open C; Mathew Brunskill: 65cc B; Camron Nelson: 65cc C; and yours truly Parrish Traweek: 40+A. Because of the rain the night before the ground was perfect, no dust and very tacky conditions. This year’s start required a dead engine and one hand on the rider’s head. Justin Raffensparger, the fastest rider in the community at the moment, starting on row two took full advantage of the tacky soil on the start and wheeled off the line carrying his front wheel around the first corner and down the start. He was second in his class into the desert. Other than a lapped rider knocking him down, he had a great race and finished second in class and seventh overall and was the highest local finisher. He wasn’t even tired at the finish. I was next starting in row six. I was late to the start line playing Mr. Mom and trying to get my son Broc on his row. I had just sat down on my bike and thought I clicked it into second gear when they dropped the flag. I got it started quick but when I let the clutch out I was in neutral and watched my class ride away, not a good way to start a race. Within a few miles and some aggressive riding I worked into second. About 15 miles Race, Page 15

Miners are ready for the challenge on the diamond in 2013 By Frank Smith The San Manuel Miners varsity baseball program is up and ready for the challenge that the 2013 season will bring on the diamond. The Miners have big expectations ahead of them set by last year’s final four team, which took the playoff tournament by surprise by upsetting several top seeds to advance to the semi-finals. With that established, San Manuel will longer be a surprise but a contender with a good number of returning players from last year’s team. At the helm this year will be first year head coach Steve Elmore, along with assistants Freddy Burnham and Richard Ivy. The coaching staff will look to improve on last seasons’ overall record of 12 – 17, a region record of 8 – 9, and a return trip to the state semi-finals. The Miners only lost

two starters from last year in seniors’ third baseman Vincent Valdez and second baseman Alexander Smith. San Manuel will return Seniors Demetrious Dietz – 1B; John Ruiz – SS/2B/P; Andy Monfred - OF; Marty Rodriguez – OF; Jake Torres – 1B; TJ Brown – C/P; and Junior Anthony Garcia – OF/P. The top newcomers are sophomores Shane Kelly – SS/2B; Jacob Marquez – 3B/P; and Christian Dietz – C. “The strength of the team will be the returning starters and how much experience they have

playing together at the varsity level,” Elmore said. “The team also has good depth at pitcher and in other needed positions.” A weakness of the team will be making errors in the field and how we react to those errors after they are made. A goal of the team is to win the Region and return back to the State playoffs. The Miners have took part in the Florence Tournament, hosted Ray, and were on the road to Hayden on Tuesday and will also be on the road to Globe today with a start time of 4 p.m.

Continued from Page 11 into the first lap I fell over easy but it was enough to really create a lot of pain on my existing injury. I worked my way back up the second for awhile and then faded to fourth in class and 20 overall. My first lap was less than a minute of Dustin’s even after the fall. Next up were Kyle Craighill and Broc Traweek starting on the same row. Both of these young riders are new to the full size bike class after racing mini cycles for several years. We figured they were going to have a good battle with each other. On the start Broc, racing under an age waiver because he’s only 13, got second and Kyle pulled third. Both riders worked their way to the front of the class on the first lap. On the second lap, Kyle lost an oil cap and pulled out of the race. On the second lap, Broc got a front tire flat but kept riding. Broc won the class and was top 10 overall in the B classes. Shawn Barney started next in the largest class of the day with two rows of riders. Shawn’s start

San Manuel Miner, San Manuel, arizona wasn’t great and he took a beating working his way up to fifth place in class. With that many riders, there can be lots of contact the first few miles. He was covered with mud from all the roost being thrown at him. Shawn is always a good finisher and very consistent. He always makes it to the finish line. Jerred Nelson was next up. Not much to say about Jerred except he did great. He took the start and checked out, winning his class and being within the top five in the C class. Next was Blane Nelson, Jerred’s older brother. Blane in his first desert race had bike problems and didn’t finish. The final big bikes to start was the women C class or maybe it should be called the Darla King class. Just as in the past, Darla pulled the start and never looked back. The word in the pit was that Darla was riding really aggressive and fast. She didn’t even stop for pit support after the first lap. I still don’t know how she went that far on fuel. In the Kids’ Mini classes, Mathew Brunskill racing the 65cc class stretched the throttle cable to second place. This kid is fast, very

aggressive and really loves the sport. Mathew led for a large part of the race. Camron Nelson, in her first motorcycle race, finished and earned a trophy. She pushed through some tears and pain to finish. Overall this was a great race this year. The weather was perfect for racing and the turnout was large with several thousand people involved. Just as in many sports in the TriCommunity, the desert racing scene has a bright future and several up and coming racers.

You're getting new neighbors or hadn't you heard? Right now, government officials have to publish their intentions in the newspaper, including where they intend to build facilities you don’t want down the block. But that will change if some politicians get their way. They want to put public notices online instead, buried on some little-seen, rarely visited government website. Don’t let the government keep you in the dark.

The winning team of the Mammoth-San Manuel Educational Foundation Tournament are, from left: Steven Taylor, Steve Taylor, John Walmier and Rudy Flores.
