Bonnie J. Pitner

Oct. 2, 1945 – Feb. 23, 2013 At 4 am on Feb. 23, 2013, our beautiful mother and friend, Bonnie Jean Herring Pitner caught her train into heaven. Born Oct. 2, 1945 in Hill, New Mexico to Fines Garret Herring Sr. and Willie Alyene Hart Herring, she grew up in New Mexico with her brother, Gary Herring. The family moved throughout southern New Mexico, until settling in the town of Anthony. Bonnie would also grow up with the love of her life, Bryant lee Pitner Sr. She knew, even at the age of three that she would someday become Mrs. Bryant Lee Pitner. That day would happen, twice, in April of 1960. 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

Bonnie J. 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.

Hayden voters choose new mayor

Arizona became the 48th state of the Union in 1912 – the same year ASARCO Hayden Plant poured its first copper. One hundred years later, ASARCO continues to mine and produce copper. We are proud to be an industrial neighbor to Kearny and the surrounding communities. On behalf of ASARCO, Hayden Operations and Ray Operations, we pay tribute to Kearny Pioneer Days.

When the votes were tallied in the Town of Hayden’s mail only election last week, the voters chose a new mayor and voted to continue with the town’s “home rule option.” Ballots were mailed to all qualified electors within the town beginning on Feb. 14, 2013. Voters had until March 12 to send in their ballots. In addition to the mayor and alternative spending limitation, voters were asked to choose all six of the council seats. In the mayoral election, former fire chief Charles “Chale” Vega captured 123 votes, 66.49 percent of the votes cast. Incumbent Monica Badillo received 53 votes.

Three write in votes were cast. The home rule option garnered 115 yes votes with 49 voting no. In the council election, the unofficial results are: • Rhonda Cooper 104 (56.22%) • Thomas Lagunas 149 (80.54%) • Enrique “Henry” Lopez 137 (74.05%) • Maria Munoz 149 (80.54%) • Nannette Quesada 92 (49.73%) • Gloria Ruiz 118 (63.78%) • Bobby Smith 147 (79.46%) Of 410 registered voters in the Town of Hayden, 185 ballots were cast, a 45.12 percent voter turnout.

Former fire chief, Hayden mayor-elect arrested for theft By Mila Besich-Lira Charles “Chale” Vega, the former fire chief for the Town of Hayden, was arrested on Wednesday, Feb. 20, by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office

on suspicion of theft and was charged with theft and trafficking in stolen property. According to Tamra Ingersoll, Public Information Officer for

PCSO, their department was contacted by the Hayden Police Department after money from an annual dance fundraiser for the town’s volunteer fire department went missing.

Hayden Police told the sheriff’s office that they believed the theft had been done by a town employee. In the same time frame, Gila County Sheriff’s Office was investigating

a theft of property from ASARCO. Stolen from the mine company were as many as four chainsaws valued at $1,120 each. Vega, who had been recently removed as fire chief and a former ASARCO employee, was determined to be the person to whom the warehouse had delivered the chainsaws. GCSO detectives had seized one of the stolen chainsaws after Vega allegedly attempted to sell it. Detectives believed that Vega was trying to replace the money taken from the town fundraiser. Vega later admitted to PCSO deputies that he had stolen funds from a fire department dance for personal use and also stole chain saws from ASARCO. He later tried to sell the chainsaws to recover the dance funds he stole. Last week, Vega defeated

Charles ‘Chale’ Vega the longtime Mayor Monica Badillo for the mayoral seat. If the newly elected mayor is convicted prior to the June swearing in ceremony, the town will have to select another mayor. If he is not convicted prior to being sworn in, he will take his seat as mayor. Arizona State Law prohibits convicted felons from voting or serving as an elected official.

Supervisors unanimously approve resolution in support of Resolution Copper Co. FLORENCE – The Pinal County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to support a resolution to urge the United States House and Senate to recognize the Resolution Copper Company for its efforts to build a copper mine near Superior. Next week, the House Energy and Minerals Subcommittee will hold a legislative hearing on seven mining bills. One of the seven bills includes H.R. 687 entitled “Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2013” sponsored by Representatives Paul Gosar and Ann Kirkpatrick. H.R. 687 would exchange land owned by Resolution Copper with federal land near Superior. The swap would allow Resolution to begin the process of obtaining permits to open an underground mine. During public comment for the resolution, twelve speakers addressed the Supervisors – ten spoke in favor, two opposed. In offering a motion for a favorable vote, District 1 Supervisor Pete Rios (whose district includes the land in question), said that he has supported this project since the beginning. “These people (residents of Superior) know mining, they have never feared mining, it is ingrained in them,” Rios said. “The big question before everyone is: do we do the land swap and then begin the environmental studies, or vice versa.” District 2 Supervisor

Cheryl Chase, who was a nurse for ASARCO, said that Resolution Copper has kept local elected leaders apprised of their operations. “I’ve known about this project since I was in the legislature,” Chase said.

wrestling ready to rumble

It takes a lot of exercising to get ready for the wresting season. (Daniel Najera photo) and a submission requires the opponent to vocally or visually signal defeat by his own choice. The art of wrestling consists of two competitors that are involved in an opponent touching the ground with some part of the body other than his feet, forcing the opponent to a certain position, usually on his

back or holding him in that position for a minimum length of time. Our volunteer coaches are the backbone of our youth sports, providing our kids with instruction and dedication for a rewarding experience in Community Schools Athletic Programs. The participation in sports and activities develops

important character traits and life-long values in our youth. There is detailed information regularly posted on the Community School’s Facebook page. For more information about the wrestling program, Pablo Rodriguez may be reached at 520-730-4196, Daniel Najara at 520-603-9929 or Gilbert Rodrguez at 520-468-1550.

Plans announced for San Carlos tribal casino By John Hernandez Representatives from the San Carlos Apache Tribal Council and gaming enterprises shared some of the plans for their new casino to be built off Highway 77 between

Mammoth and Dudleyville at a public meeting Thursday evening in Mammoth. The proposed casino will sit one halfmile off the highway near mile marker 127. Gary Murrey, general

If you see water or dirt blowing into the air, or discolored vegetation surrounding a pipeline. Leave the vicinity immediately and don’t use an automated door. From a safe place, call Southwest Gas at 1-800-722-4277 and 911 immediately, day or night. Don’t turn off or on any electric switches, thermostats, or appliance controls, or start or stop an engine—or do anything that might cause a spark. Don’t light matches or lighters.

manager for the San Carlos Apache Tribes gaming enterprises said that the Tribe will try to hire local for the construction and development of the phase I plan. Phase I construction is expected to be completed by Jun. 2014, with temporary modular buildings that will hold a casino with 400 slot machines, 12 gaming tables and six poker tables. There will be a small restaurant and lounge. Cost of the project is estimated between $25 million to $30 million. Murrey said that it should spark additional economic development in the area, adding that the addition of 400 jobs to the area would bring in more businesses and maybe a large grocery store. Phase II of the project is expected to be three to five years down the road. The size and scope of the project will be determined by the success of the temporary Phase I facilities. It could include a casino with 600 to 800 slot machines plus gaming tables, convention center, entertainment complex and hotel facilities similar in size to Casino del Sol, Murrey said. Residents of the north side of Tucson are expected to be a large customer base. Shuttle buses or vans could be used to transport people from the area to and from the casino. Many questions were asked by attendees at the Mammoth meeting concerning the increase in traffic, crime, infrastructure, San Casino, Page 24

Volunteers still run Hand Me Up thrift shop in Kearny By Nina Crowder In 1985, the Copper Basin Community Health Foundation, a non-profit citizen-owned organization, started a thrift shop known as the Hand Me Up Shop, currently located in Kearny at 117 Tilbury Drive. They serve the Copper Corridor an area of approximately 686 square miles, extending from Oracle to Globe, including Superior and the Tri-Community area. Originally, the organization was started to help the clinic/hospital in Kearny that was owned

by Kennecott when that company owned the mine. Kennecott sold the clinic/ hospital to Good Samaritan Health Services for one dollar. After a few years, when the clinic/hospital wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making any money, Samaritan planned to sell it. The group stepped up and said they could not just lock up and close it. The Copper Area Health Volunteers grew and decided to start helping the local area students that were recent graduates of Ray or Hayden High School and planning

to move forward with a medical career. Over the years, they have provided equipment for the ambulance as well as tuition for local Emergency Medical Technicians and paramedics. They have provided wheelchairs and Head Start AED defibrillatosr to both

local Ray and Hayden High Schools and the Hayden Senior Center. They currently have nine scholarships and one adult paramedic scholarship, where those that meet the requirements will be provided with a scholarship of $500 per semester. In 1984, the Samaritan

Health Volunteers formed. In 1989, they left the area and were re-incorporated as the Community Health Volunteers. Then in 2003, the Copper Area Health Volunteers came about due to a re-organization of the group. The group was able to form based on

the donations from the people at the mine, through payroll deductions and the community donations. The group is purchasing the building they are currently in. President Rose Bradford has been a member for four years. She has a business Thrift Store, Page 25

Kearny Council supports Resolution Copper of the project as in the past, “that is our (Resolution Copper) fault.” Richardson also explained that over 300 residents of Superior have signed a petition supporting the company. The Council also approved a liquor license change for the General Kearny Inn,

selected Robert Inguilli as the Kearny Police Chief and approved a resolution to allow the town to submit a grant to the Gila River Indian Community in the amount of $55,690 for equipment and a vehicle for the Kearny Police Department.

Go Painlessly® with THERA-GESIC.


By Mila Besich-Lira The Kearny Town Council voted 6-1 Monday to approve a resolution of support for Resolution Copper. Mayor Sam Hossler voted to oppose the resolution which he explained was for personal reasons. Bruce Richardson, the Communications Manager for Resolution Copper Mining, gave a presentation to the council educating them on the project and the status of the land exchange legislation. In February both Representatives Kirkpatrick and Gosar introduced the H.R. 687 to propose the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2013. The bill is expected to receive a hearing in the House Natural Resources Committee on Thursday. Richardson explained that the company has always enjoyed regional support for the copper project near Superior. Councilman Gambell asked why recently the Town of Superior and City of Globe did not approve support resolutions. Richardson explained that they are continuing to work with the Town of Superior and that they will be providing a more detailed presentation to Globe. He explained that new council members and a new manager in Globe were not as aware

What’s in a number? How Romney By Matt Haldane Copper Area News A recent push in Virginia to apportion electoral votes by district instead of relying on its current winner-take-all system in presidential elections has revived a debate that has been off and on for much of the United States’ history: What is the fairest way to elect the President of the United States? Many American voters dislike the United States Electoral College. While few people can make sense of why the U.S. does not rely on the national popular vote to determine the president, changing the Constitution is a tough and controversial thing to do. Smaller states have traditionally liked the idea

of the Electoral College because it gives them a proportionally larger voice in the election. States with fewer people have a larger share of electoral votes per person. What has emerged, however, is tight and tense campaigning in a small number of “battle ground” or “swing” states. This has left people wondering whether Maine and Nebraska have the right idea by divvying up their votes by congressional district and giving their remaining two electoral votes, one for each senator, to the candidate who wins the state’s popular vote. Virginia State Senator Bill Carrico might have had fairness in mind when he proposed a bill to do something

similar, but concerns about a Republican power grab may have ultimately killed the bill. Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin have also considered similar bills and they, like Virginia, all have Republican governors in states that voted for President Barack Obama last November. Such an apportionment of electoral votes would have benefited Mitt Romney in states where he received no electoral votes, but in Arizona, Obama would have walked away with at least three additional votes. An important difference in the Virginia bill compared with how Maine and Nebraska operate is that Carrico sought to give

the remaining two votes to the candidate who won the most districts instead of the popular vote. That would have given Romney nine of Virginia’s 13 electoral votes. However, even if the last two votes were given to the popular vote winner, an amendment offered by Carrico before the bill was killed, Virginia still would have given seven votes to Romney and six to Obama. In fact, if the whole country operated under that system, Romney would have won the election 276 to 262, according to an estimate by political scientist Alan Abramowitz at the Center for Politics. Completely accurate numbers for congressional

district results can be hard to parse out since most states do not report those numbers for the presidential election. The numbers are not relevant to states that operate under a winner-take-all system unless, of course, someone is trying to figure out the impact of switching to a different system. The advantage for Romney is not surprising given that rural areas tend to favor the Republican candidate. The U.S. looks very red or Republican when looking at maps color-coded by county. Counties are smaller than congressional districts and might better represent voting trends in rural areas. Democrats, however,

have a strong advantage in urban areas, where 80.7 percent of the country’s population resides, according to the 2010 census. Urbanized areas, classified by the Census Bureau as urban areas with 50,000 or more people, make up 71.2 percent of the population. A switch to the congressional district method would give rural voters a bigger advantage in the Electoral College than what they have currently. While Arizona has had relatively slim margins in the popular vote in recent general elections, the state remains a Republican stronghold. According to The Atlantic, Phoenix is one of the few major cities to vote for Romney in

By Matt Haldane Copper Area News To many, the United States Electoral College system seems like an antiquated voting mechanism that has no place in the Information Age. With computers and modern communication, it is easy to get accurate election results quickly, which leaves people confused as to why the country does not use a national popular vote to elect the president. In historical context, it is not such a tragedy that we wound up with the Electoral College. Having the president elected by congress was a serious consideration at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. The Electoral College system (as it would come to be called in the 20th

century) was proposed as a compromise between that and a popular vote. The Constitution allows each state a number of electors equal to its number of representatives in congress (the number of representatives in the House plus its two senators). The members of the House are determined by a state’s congressional districts. Arizona has nine districts, so it has nine House representatives. With its two senators, Arizona has a total of 11 electoral votes. These electors are the people we are actually voting for and the electors vote for the president. Today, 26 states and Washington, D.C. (which was granted 3 electoral votes by the 23rd Amendment in 1961) have passed laws

binding their electors to either the party or candidate who won each district. Arizona has not passed such a law but has never had a problem with rogue electors. This system has advantaged smaller states from the beginning, giving them a disproportionately larger number of representatives relative to their populations. Smaller states were quick to support this system because they believed it would keep larger states from dominating public policy. Today, critics worry that the Electoral College system has given undue influence to swing states like Ohio, where recent candidates have launched relentless campaign efforts. With the 2010 Supreme Court

decision on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission lifting certain restrictions

on private funding of political advertising, Ohio residents were feeling particularly

election weary by November 2012. One pitfall of the Electoral College is

There does not seem to be much support for divvying up votes by district. “The major complaint I hear is (voters) want it to be the popular vote,” said State Senator Barbara McGuire, a Democrat from Legislative District 8. “They’re discontent for the most part with the electoral vote process.” McGuire was not convinced that Democrats taking away some votes in Arizona would be a net positive. “I don’t see that there would be an advantage,” she said, adding that the

decision is ultimately up to the voters. “If voters want this changed, then it’s something that they’re going to have to push for collectively.” Ultimately, fairness is hard to gauge. Voting by district would get rid of the swing state dynamic, but it would create swing districts. There would be many more competitive districts than there are states and voters might feel like their vote matters more if the candidate they want to win just has to win their district. Campaigning would also be altered. Presidential candidates would likely start to focus on certain districts rather than certain states. This might make gerrymandering, or

manipulating redistricting to favor a certain party, even more competitive. Arizona redistricting is handled by an independent commission, but in 2011, Governor Jan Brewer and the state senate threw out the commission leader Chairwoman Colleen Mathis for gross misconduct. By November of that year, the Arizona Supreme Court had overturned that decision, reinstating Mathis. Arizona redistricting might be less partisan than in other states as a result, but the fairness of the congressional district method remains an open question. A study out of the Department of Statistics and Political Science at

Columbia University claims that apportionment by district is actually less fair to the candidates as it reinforces a partisan bias that is statistically insignificant under our current model or a popular vote. The authors note, though, that “voters in states that strongly favor one candidate might have plenty to gain by changing to a district-based method, if their districts are suitably competitive, just as voters in competitive states might have far less impact if they live in an uncompetitive district and this change were made.” For now, the move toward district apportionment seems to have subsided. The bill in Virginia is dead and

Representative Paul Ryan has come out against any similar changes in Wisconsin. Any momentum the movement once had is gone. It remains a rare event that the winner of the popular vote does not also get a majority of the electoral votes. McGuire

said there is no movement in the Arizona Senate to change the electoral process here. She made it clear that the choice should be left to the voters, but who wants the change? “My opinion is if it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” McGuire said.

that it makes it more likely that candidates would not get a majority of the votes, leaving the outcome of the election to the House of Representatives. This is a very remote possibility, though. This has only happened once, when the election of 1800 ended in a tie, and it has never happened under modern election rules. When the Constitution was still relatively new and had far more kinks to be ironed out, one of the flaws was to allow electors to vote for two candidates for president. This was meant to increase the possibility that one candidate would receive a majority of the electoral votes, but the rise of political parties was not anticipated at the time. Vice presidents were also elected by

having the second largest number of electoral votes, so they were not voted for separately. This changed with the 12th Amendment. The election of 1800 saw Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr (you may know him as the only sitting vice president to kill a man when he shot Alexander Hamilton in a duel) tie with 73 electoral votes each. The House decided on Jefferson only after Hamilton wrote letters trying to convince members of congress that Jefferson was the lesser of two evils (the rivalry between Burr and Hamilton had a long history by this point). So it went that the United States survived its only tie in the electoral college. Today, presidents and vice presidents are elected separately,

although in practice the presidential candidate chooses his vice president and the electors follow. Now that the country has 50 states and 538 electoral votes, the likelihood of a tie is very slim. Champions of allocating electoral votes by district think it would make campaigns more competitive and might even give some hope for third party candidates. Even so, the odds of an election

ending without a majority of electoral votes remains improbable. For various reasons, however, states continue to try to change how electoral votes are doled out. It usually comes down to party politics. Apportioning votes by congressional district always seems most appealing to the party that most recently lost a presidential election. The National Conference of State

Legislatures notes on its website that “since the highly controversial 2000 presidential election, bills have been introduced in every state in the country to change the process for selecting electors.” Most of these bills proposed between 2001 and 2006 focused on the congressional district method. In 2004, Colorado proposed dividing its votes up according to the proportion of the popular

vote going to each candidate. None of the proposed changes passed and today Maine and Nebraska remain the only two states that apportion votes by congressional district and not the popular vote. The 2008 election remains the only one in which a state—Nevada—divided its votes between the two candidates. Obama received one electoral vote from the state.

importance to the county, the state and the nation,” Smith said. “We need to embrace this project-52 percent of Pinal County people leave this county to go to work, we need to stop that.” District 5 Supervisor Todd House said that support for the project is growing in his district. “I recently attended a meeting in Queen Valley,” House said. “Many of those people were initially not in support of the land exchange. But once the issues were brought up, they seem to be changing their minds and supporting this project.”

Continued from Page 9 through Congress. “I have supported this project for years,” Miller stated. “It was sad to see the land exchange resolution die in the Senate last year. Now we have to bring it up again in the House. We really need this project.” District 4 Supervisor and Vice-Chairman Anthony Smith said that the proposed land exchange has grass roots support and the need to pass it is important for the county. “This project is of vital

background and ran the Kearny Inn for about 20 years. She was the first female Mayor of Kearny, she was Mayor from 19911997 then moved out of the city limits so had to resign. Originally, she was born in Detroit, Michigan but her family moved to Arizona for health reasons. Rose graduated in 1961 from Kearny High School, the first graduating class. The many volunteers that work the Hand Me Up Shop are extremely appreciative of the generous donations received from community members. Joe Norris just recently donated a lot of camouflage clothing to the store. Norris used to be the ROTC director in Kearny and the clothing has been in storage at the police department prior to Joe donating it. The seasonal items are put in storage on the property for the appropriate time or if they have items that are in abundance. They have a little of everything and there aren’t many places to shop in Kearny, so the thrift shop is an easy

page 25 remedy. Occasionally the Shop gets in a few people from the Valley or surrounding areas. Bradford recalled a gentleman that came in just before Valentine’s Day from Mesa needing a red dress and shoes to wear for a Valentine’s event. The volunteers had a good time finding an outfit for him to wear and he was happy he came to the Hand Me Up Shop. There is a lot of good going on at the Shop, where they try to help people who have experienced loss of home and/or belongings from a fire or flood. They let people come in and shop for free in those instances. The groups also donate $200 a month to the Florence Food Bank and $200 a month to Family First for diapers. They also pay half the cost of the ambulance attendant’s living quarters monthly. They try to do good for the community and help where help is needed. There is a wonderful atmosphere and terrific volunteers at the Hand Me Up Shop. Take a few minutes to stop in and see what the Hand Me Up Shop has to offer.
