It should be about lives saved, not territory lost A meeting was held at the Town Council on March 21 where we (PRFR) presented a program, again, on providing FREE Paramedic level emergency medical care to the residents of the Town of Mammoth like

we do for the residents and visitors to our own service area. Arizona Revised Statutes even has a specific law addressing this very issue allowing such an agreement. Mammoth Fire District

showed up in full force to once again protect their “turf” rather than see the big picture of what is best for the town residents as a whole for faster Paramedic care. Sadly, very few residents were actually there again so as a result only Mammoth Fire District’s voice was heard because they were the loudest. We have tried for a year and a half to help our

new neighbors to no avail. When we first moved here to Mammoth to retire two years ago, I tried to join the Mammoth Fire District to help. Apparently, highly trained and qualified people are not permitted on their department…if you are not related somehow. A short time later, I was asked to come help a neighbor who was having a stroke, which I did. The next morning

Mammoth Fire District and the ambulance crew immediately turned me into the state to try to get my Paramedic certification taken away even though I had taken all the paperwork and showed it to Mammoth Fire District administration that I had medical direction. The State did not see it their way and I was completely absolved. This is exactly the kind of animosity we have faced since day one. In addition, because of the underhanded dealings of the Mammoth Fire District personnel in the past concerning our certifications, we will not risk our Paramedic certifications to additional attacks of false accusations. There is a liability law called “Borrowed Servant” in which a Paramedic or EMT is legally responsible for someone they direct to provide care. We cannot assume the liability to provide care to any

residents of the Town of Mammoth in conjunction with the Mammoth Fire District. I am quite sure that Rick Sanchez and the Mammoth Fire District believes this was a great victory for the District in protecting their “turf.” But, there were no winners… The REAL reality is that every resident of the Town of Mammoth was the loser…the children, the elderly, your parents and grandparents, and those that live in our community with special needs. We apologize to our neighbors but until a more agreeable relationship can be realized, you are stuck with what you have. Only you can make the changes that are necessary to improve the conditions here. We tried… /s/ Bud Paine, NREMT-P Fire Chief Pinal Rural Fire Rescue

Promise unfulfilled: returning the town to the town I attended the Mammoth Council meeting Thursday, March 21. The meeting was called to order and requests from the Council to the people in attendance to “fill out speaker cards”. Evidently these cards are to give the mayor the ability to pick and choose whom he wants to speak and whom he wants to bypass and not allow to speak. Mr. Joe Casello filled a card out and turned it in. He stood for five minutes and the Mayor, Alvaro Barcelo refused to give him the floor and told him to sit down. Is this the way to treat a lifelong elderly resident that needs to address the council? Councilman Juan Barcelo did try to get the floor for Mr. Casillas but the Mayor refused him also. The promise of all candidates when campaigning was to return the ‘town to the people”. Two Councilmen were absent a second time and Councilman Joe Brewer

tried repeatedly to get the floor with issues to present to the council. He was denied the floor. He was told by the town clerk that she would not put his issues on the agenda. I ask, where does a town clerk tell an elected official what will or will not be put on the agenda? This has happened repeatedly to Mr. Brewer. When Councilman Brewer does get the floor he is verbally attacked by the council when asking questions of accountability. Is this the way to treat an elected Councilman? Hang in there, Councilman Brewer; there are many people in Mammoth supporting you. No reports were given by persons listed on the agenda. There was no Treasurer’s report as usual. Mammoth residents need to know where the funds, grants, and how expenses are dispersed. If the Treasurer is not able to give a report for any reason, she needs to step

down. An audit ordered through the Attorney General’s office is in order and will get the town back on track. Vice Mayor Frances Wickham stated the swap meet went well and was a huge success. That was good news but again I

ask, “How many dollars were made, and where were the funds deposited?” Again, no report! There is never a report on meetings attended by the Council members. As a past Mayor of a town in South Dakota the size of Mammoth, I

PCSO confirm identity of body found in Dudleyville desert area Pinal County Homicide Detectives have confirmed the identity of a deceased male found in the San Carlos Apache Reservation area near Dudleyville as Gary D. Crawford, 62. On Jan. 17, 2013, Tribal

Police contacted the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and informed them that a non-Native American body was found on reservation land deceased due to apparent exposure. Because the victim was

not a Native American, jurisdiction belonged to PCSO. PCSO Public Information Officer Tamra Ingersoll said that Crawford’s death was certified as an accident.

Pinal County budget looms; Supervisors pledge no tax increases By Chase Kamp Copper Area News As FY 2013-14 county budget negotiations grow closer, Board Chairman Steve Miller and District 1 Supervisor Pete Rios have pledged to not raise property taxes and stifle additional spending in light of a $6.3 million loss in revenue from last year. However, they say costs expected to pile up in the courts and law enforcement stemming from the county attorney’s office restructuring will pose a challenge to zeroing out the bottom line. In a written statement, Miller outlined two hard objectives for the budget talks: no increase in the property tax rate and a freezing of department spending. “Pinal County already has the highest primary property tax rate and the second highest tax burden of Arizona’s 15 counties,” he argued. “Our ultimate goal is to bring the tax levy to a reasonable level.” In a response statement, Rios doubled down on these pledges. “No one should be surprised to find I am in complete agreement with Chairman Miller’s vision for the budget,” he wrote. However, declining valuations from 2010 and 2011are still hurting tax income. The county will collect 7.7 perBudget, Page 15

60 percent of the prizes at Intel ISEF. Intel ISEF gives more than four million dollars worth of scholarships and cash prizes. “SARSEF directors told us that they think the reason why so many of SARSEF students win at Intel is because SARSEF is one of the only ones that start the kids out at kindergarten,” said Julie Formo, teacher at Mammoth Elementary STEM School. “We had eighteen students from our school who have now won awards for two years in a row and they are going into second grade next year.”

The Mammoth Elementary STEM School classes that worked hard on their projects and won at this year’s SARSEF are: Investigating Germs Teacher: Julie Formo, SciEnTek-12 Foundation, 3rd Place. Soil Matters - Teacher: Julie Formo, SciEnTek-12 Foundation 2nd Place. Larvapalooza - Teacher: Laura Faulkenberry, Cox Communications 1st Place.

SARSEF is sponsored by the SciEnTek–12 Foundation. Their mission is to excite young people about science and engineering. They support other programs and contests involving science, math, engineering and technology. Some students who have participated in SARSEF have gone on to become scientists or engineers.

Put a little wild in your diet at the Oracle State Park By Rick Gagnon Special to the Miner Acorn cracking and wild onion peeling is how you can start. I have a stash of both at Oracle State Park. Check out the wild foods

table to get a taste. You can also get to know some of the other wild edibles while you are there. On Saturday, Mar. 30 at 9 a.m., I will lead a walk at Oracle State Park.

We should expect to find Covena, a wild onion, with blue flowers. Mariposa Lily and other edible weeds should also be found. Following the hike at about 11 a.m., we will

prepare some renditions of Apache dishes. An acorn stew will use the acorns, wild onions, covena, wild rabbit, and zucchini. Koolade will combine lemonade berry, prickly pear, and honey. Empanadas filled with banana yucca and

other wild seeds and fruits will be prepared if we have the time. All wild food should be treated with caution. Try only a taste at first to make sure it agrees with you. Proper identification is also important.

Lady Miners rack up 5 – 1 region record but fall to Hayden By Frank Smith The San Manuel Lady Miners have been busy on the field, racking up a 5 – 1 region record with a 10 – 7 overall record. In the last contest for the Lady Miners, San Manuel lost to region foe Hayden 11 – 1 to take their first region loss of the season.   The Lady Miners started off their regular season with a game at St. Augustine’s on Feb. 26 in Tucson with San Manuel taking an 11 – 3 win. The Lady Miners made the trip to Wickenburg to take part in the Wickenburg Wrangler Tournament on Mar. 1 and 2 with round-robin competition beginning on the first day of the tournament. In game one, San Manuel lost Blue Ridge 4 – 2 in six innings. In the second game of the tournament, the Lady Miners lost to Nogales 10 – 2 in 4 innings. San Manuel lost to Payson 10 – 4 in 5 innings in the third game of the tournament.   In the fourth game, the Lady Miners lost to Lake Havasu 5 – 2 in 5 innings. In the circle for the ladies was Nicole with Medina catching. Nicole faced 23 batters allowing 5 runs on 7 hits, 1 strikeout and 2 walks. At the plate was Nicole Encinas 1/3 single; Felicia Medina 2/3, RBI; and Mariah McBride 1/2 single.   In the Consolation Bracket, in game one – San Manuel took on Independence picking up the win 4 - 2 in 6 innings.  

In the second game of the consolation bracket, the Lady Miners beat Coolidge 11 - 1 in 4 innings. In the third game, the Miners was scheduled to face Blue Ridge but the game was called a forfeit. In the fourth game, San Manuel beat Mohave 9 - 5 in 4 innings. The Lady Miners were undefeated in the consolation bracket and brought home some hardware. San Manuel then got back to the regular season competition hosting Ray on March 7, picking up the win 5 - 4 in 6 1/2 innings. The Lady Miners hosted a very tough Empire squad on Mar. 8 taking the loss 13 – 2.   On Mar. 12, the Lady Miners headed up to Hayden and grabbed a close 8 – 7 win over the Lady Lobos. San Manuel traveled up to Globe to take on the Lady Tigers on Mar. 13 with the Lady Miners returning with a 17 – 3 win. In the circle was Lyana Waddell with Mariah McBride catching. Waddell faced 21 batters in 5 innings, allowing 3 runs on 2 hits 7 strikeouts and 1 walk. At the plate, Tamayo 2/4 singles; Encinas 1/3 single; White 2/4 singles, stolen base, RBI; Medina 3/3 single, double, homerun, 2 RBIs; Waddell 3/4 HOMERUNS (all 3 hits) 8 RBIs; Zuniga 2/4 single, double, stolen base; and Estrada 2/4 single,

double, RBI. “We finally hit the ball like I know we can,” Brewer said. “Lyana had a field day. I hope this gets our confidence where it should be in the area of hitting.”   The Lady Miners hosted St. Augustine on Mar. 18 and picked up a shut out win 10 – 0 in five innings. In the circle was Encinas with McBride catching. Encinas faced 21 batters in 5 innings allowing 6 hits, 1 strikeout, 1 walk.

Brewer said it was Nicole’s first shutout. “We still want our pitchers to eliminate walks and limit the number of hits we are giving up,” Brewer said. “Every runner that gets on base has the potential to score. It’s a lot of pressure on our pitchers, but I know they can do it. I would also like to see my whole team get hits in every game we play.” San Manuel paid a visit to Tucson on Mar. 19 to face off against St. Gregory and picked up another shut out win 20 - 0 over the Lady Hawks. In the circle was Encinas with White catching. Encinas faced 18 batters in 5 innings,

On Mar. 20, the Lady Miners headed over to Vail to take on Empire and returned home with a 17 – 0 loss. In the circle was Waddell with Medina catching. Waddell faced 35 batters in 4 innings, allowing 16 hits, 0 strikeouts, 4 walks. At the plate, Encinas 1/2 single; Medina 1/2 single; and Zuniga 1/2 single. Coach Brewer said Empire is an aggressively hitting team. “If we give up hits, we would ideally like them to be singles,” Brewer said. “Un-

fortunately, they got a lot of extra base hits, including three homeruns.  We allowed to many pop ups to be dropped and just had too many mental errors defensively because we weren’t being aggressive.” The team struggled at the plate, coming away with three singles. “We did not execute the short game and really just struggled to hit,” Brewer said. “It is a good experience for us to play teams like Empire, because we will see these tougher pitching/hitting teams later in the season. We just have to step up our confidence and aggressive play.” The Lady Miners hosted Hayden on Mar. 22 and lost their first region game of the season 11 – 1. In the circle was Waddell with Medina catching. Waddell faced 35 batters allowing 11 runs on 8 hits, 9 strikeouts 4 walks and 5 defensive errors.

At the plate, Tamayo 1/4 single; Encinas 1/2 single, sac; White 1/3 single; Medina 3/3 singles, double, RBI; Gomez 1/2 single; and Zuniga 2/3 singles. “We gave this game away,” Brewer said. “Lyana worked hard to keep Hayden’s hitters off the ball, but defensively, we just weren’t ready. We had more hits than Hayden, but just couldn’t get the base runners across the plate. Back to the drawing board.”  The Lady Miners went down to Willcox on Monday and will take part in the Hayden Invitational Tournament this Friday and Saturday.

Miner diamond men work hard to get win over Lobos By Frank Smith The San Manuel varsity baseball team has been busy on the diamond in the first part of the season, taking their ups and downs along the way, learning to work hard together to get the W’s. They managed to get the big win over Hayden for a record of 2 – 3 in the region and 4 – 6 overall. The Miners started off the season at the Padilla Tournament in Florence on Feb. 27 with a 7 – 3 loss to Bourgade Catholic. The Miners scored two runs in the first inning and one run in the fourth inning while Bourgade Catholic scored two runs in the first inning, three runs in the second inning, and two runs in the third inning. On the second day of the tournament, San Manuel took another loss to Show Low 10 – 0 with the Cougars scoring two runs in the second inning, one run in the third inning, five runs in the fourth inning, and two runs in the fifth inning. The Miners had five hits and committed one error while the Cougars scored

10 runs on eight hits and committed one error. On Mar. 1, the Miners picked up the win over Ray 9 – 7 with the Bearcats scoring one run in the first inning, five runs in the second inning, and one run in the fourth inning while the Miners scored six runs in the second inning and three runs in the third inning. Ray scored seven runs on six hits and committed no errors; San Manuel scored nine runs on 10 hits and committed one error. The Miners took the victory over Apache Junction 8-4 then finished the tournament with a tough loss to Blue Ridge 4 – 1. Stepping up for the Miners during the tournament was Jacob Marquez, who went 5 for 7 with two singles, one double, one triple, and one home run. Anthony Garcia went 4 for 6 with two doubles and two home runs with one of them being a grand slam. Marty Rodriguez went 4 for 8 with three singles and one double and John Ruiz went 4 for 9 with three doubles and a home run.

Head coach Steve Elmore said overall, it was a good tournament. “We went into it, wanted to play as much baseball as we could and get back into the swing of things on the field and at the plate,” Elmore said. “A lot of guys did really well and others saw what they need to work on. I am very happy with how we played as a team, we just need to cut down on the errors during games and we should be just fine for the season.” The Miners got the regular season hosting the Ray Bearcats on Mar. 7 taking the loss 13 – 4 in a region game. San Manuel then traveled over to Hayden to take on the Lobos coming away with a close 6 – 4 win picking up their first region win. On Mar. 13, the Miners made the trip up to Globe to take on the Tigers taking a 15 – 0 loss in the process. San Manuel then hosted the Desert Christian Eagles from Tucson on Mar. 21 and took another tough loss 19 – 5. The Miners hosted Hayden on Mar. 22 sending the Lobos home early in the 6th inning on the ten-run mercy rule with San Manuel picking up the 14 – 4 win. The Lobos score two runs in the first inning, one run in the fourth inning, and one run in the fifth inning while the Miners scored one run in the first inning, three runs in the second inning, five runs in the fourth inning, one run in the fifth inning, and four runs in the sixth inning to end the game. The Lobos scored four runs on four hits and the Miners scored 14 runs on 10 hits. On the mound for the Miners was Jakob Torres with Trent Brown catching. Bryan Valdez came in to relive Torres in the fourth inning. Torres (1 -1) picked up the win allowing four hits, one for a double, four runs – three earned, collected three strikeouts, and walked three.

Offensively, Demetrious Dietz went 2 for 4 with a double, and scored two runs, John Ruiz went 2 for 4 with two runs scored, and Trent Brown went 2 for 4 with a double, and four RBIs. “This was by far the most focused we have been before any game this season,” Elmore said. “We had some

struggles early on, but hopefully we can turn the corner and get some good wins in the upcoming weeks. We have a lot of talent on this team; the players just have to realize to play within themselves and not try to do too much in the field or at the plate.” In Junior Varsity action, the

Miners took a loss to Walden Grove 12 – 8, picked up wins over Ray 8 – 1, Empire 8 – 2, and Hayden 17-0 while taking the loss to Globe 13 – 7. The Miners varsity squad traveled to Superior on Tuesday and will host St. Gregory on Friday for a double-header with the first game starting at 2 p.m.

Toiling in the soil By Mrs. Formo’s Kindergarten Class The question for our experiment was which soil will grow the best plants. The result of our experiment was that compost grew the biggest and greenest plants and the radishes were bigger. We learned that the plants need nutrients so we tested the soil to see if the compost

had more nutrients. Our teacher helped us test the soil with a soil testing kit and we discovered that the compost had more nitrogen than the other soils. We noticed that the clay holds the water longer; it looks like a lake on top of the soil when we water. The plants in the clay grew faster than the others. When we plant our garden, we will mix the

soils so there are nutrients and some clay. We also learned that there are good bacteria in the soil that help the plants use nitrogen. We will be taking our projects to the science fair, Southern Arizona Regional Science Fair, to show what we have learned. One project is about bad germs at school and one is about soil.

STEM students participate in science fair

Preschoolers learn about Dinosaurs The Preschool students in Mrs. Maestas’ classroom recently completed a unit on dinosaurs. During the unit students were taught how to pronounce a variety of dinosaur names. Students also learned about the various dinosaur sizes and distinguishing physical features that many of them had which helped in determining whether or not they were meat eaters or plant eaters. Students were able to create their own dinosaur fossils and dinosaur eggs. The unit was concluded with the students cracking their dinosaur eggs open to see what type of dinosaur was inside for them to keep.

On March 1, 2013 the Mammoth Elementary STEM School spent time out at the Central Arizona College, Aravaipa Campus, for our 3rd annual science event. This

year’s Science Expo was a huge success. The student’s displayed their research projects, answered questions concerning their projects, and took suggestions on how to improve aspects

of their research presentation for the upcoming competition in Tucson. We would like to extend our gratitude to CAC and especially Benny and Maria for hosting our event another year.

Budget

Continued from Page 5 cent less on property tax, a difference of $6.3 million. “With the exception of slight upticks in state sales tax revenues,” Miller wrote, “the signs of recovery that we are beginning to see won’t be reflected in county property tax revenues for another 12 to 18 months.” In January, the Board approved a reorganization proposed by County Attorney Lando Voyles which added a total of 30 new paralegal and administrative positions to the office at a cost of about $1 million this fiscal year. Voyles told the Board the additional employees would allow for more trials and prosecutions of violent crime suspects. Speaking with Copper Area News, both Rios and Miller said they were not interested in letting off violent criminals. However, as more cases are taken to trial, the two expect greater costs to manifest in the courts and in the Sheriff’s office down the line. Miller said Maricopa County takes about 5 percent of its cases to trial and Pinal was running about 3 percent of cases during the previous administration. “I’m sure that was to keep costs down,” he said. Rios said Voyles’ restructuring was similar to one made by former Maricopa County attorney Andrew Thomas when Rios served in the state legislature, and the cost with other entities affiliated with the criminal justice system also went up. Among the added costs coming down the line will be more jail space and detention officers for the Sheriff’s office, Rios said, as well as busier courts and additional public defenders. Rios said the county already spends about half of its general fund budget on public safety, and that if citizens want more funds sent toward that realm, it

will mean shortfalls elsewhere. “Other programs and areas may need to be cut to address this particular concern,” he said. Sheriff Paul Babeu indicated to the Board in January that his office will likely request more funding. The Supervisors said they have yet to hear proposals from other department heads. Miller said lowering taxes was the most important goal he heard from voters during the election. “It’s not attractive to industry, and we’ve got one of the poorest in incomes in the state,” he said. “For once, I would love to be average,” he said with a laugh.
