Grupo Mexico Grupo Mexico announced this month that it expects to get its Cananea copper mine back to full production in April, Reuters reported. The mine has been operating at partial capacity since the end of a three-year strike in 2010. Cananea, located in Sonora,

By Lana Jones Beverly Prueter, the new executive director for United Way of Pinal County, has been working with United Way for 46 years. Up until she moved to Pinal in November she was the president and CEO of United Way of Greater Lima in Ohio. She took that job in 1976. A desire to be closer to her family and the opportunity to keep working with United Way pulled her out west. “I like the area really well and the opportunity to stay in United Way really spoke to me,” she said. “That’s what I’ve been doing all my life. I absolutely love working with people who are trying to help people.” She loves working with people and especially with volunteers. “Volunteers bring a different perspective every year. You’re never bored. There’s always someone bringing something new into the picture. They can bring vitality to an organization really well,” she said. And that’s one of the things she’ll be working on first here in Pinal, building a stronger volunteer base for the fundraising campaign. “We’ve got a great group of volunteers for the board and a great group of volunteers managing the fund but the campaign is lacking,” said Beverly. The campaign starts in the fall and is usually completed by February but it’s still wrapping up this year. Beverly said she’d like to recruit a campaign chair who will recruit volunteers for the campaign. The volunteers will circulate pledge sheets with information about the nonprofits United Way of Pinal County is going to fund and the types of services they’ll provide. “We’re doing a fairly good

is the largest copper mine in Mexico. Other mining news Local writer and retired miner, Onofre Tafoya, was interviewed in a recent series by Arizona Public Media called Copper at the Crossroads. Tafoya, better known as Taffy, spoke of his 25 years at San Manuel Mine and what it meant to him. The interview, and eight other copper mining stories, are available online at http://www.azpm.org/arizona. copper/.

Beverly Prueter job of that in Casa Grande and Apache Junction. We just want to get around in the county itself,” Beverly said. “I think with the volunteer structure, you’ll have more people getting out. What it’s going to mean in the long run, if we raise more money we can help more people and that’s really what United Way is all about.” Part of what makes the campaign difficult is just the size of the county. “It’s hard to reach people with all the communities. We do fund programs in most of the communities. It’s hard for people to get the message,” said Beverly. “Marketing is always a problem.” The economic state of affairs is also a problem. “The economy is very difficult and that’s why it’s important for us to reach out and get around in the different communities. “The challenge for any large county United Way is making their services known to people.” People may not know what services are available because the service agencies aren’t based in their community. For example, Beverly said that the United Way supports See United Way, Page 8

Family to honor slain deputy, Part Two By Becky Drew On May 11, 2011, the Drew family of Kearny will honor their ancestor, Edward Landers Drew. EL was a Deputy Sheriff for Pinal County and stationed at Ray. He was killed in a shoot out at the Saloon of Dick Remington (or Pennington) in Sonoratown. I have included parts of the family story (so as to make sense of where the Drews came from and just how they ended up). This is by no means a complete story as it is much longer. Help us honor EL Drew and those other brave law-men of the area, some who gave their lives and others who dedicated their lives to make it a safe place to live. Harrison, Edward, David, Cora, and Charles According to the Arizona Census of 1880, Harrison was employed as a teamster and Edward, a laborer. (Arizona Territorial Census, Pima County. Later this area became Cochise county. Cochise was created 1 Feb 1881 out of Pima.) Soon afterwards, Edward, 15, was able to secure a contract delivering wood to the Contention smelter. He hired Mexicans to cut the wood from the nearby Chiricahua Mountains. As the nearest source of wood, the Chiricahuas were about 50 miles away. They used 20 mule teams for transportation of the wood.

Cora remembers being poor during this time and for her eighth Christmas receiving a plain, dark blue bottle. To her “it was the most beautiful thing a child could have” and she kept it for many months. Using it for a doll, she was heartbroken the day she accidentally broke it on a rock. It was her only plaything. In the spring of 1881 (Cora Drew Reynolds. Possibly July 1877 according to Arizona: the last Frontier. It is possible that this happened before William died rather than in 1881 as Cora tells it. In 1877 Cora was 5.), Cora continues, a man came to the ranch on foot. He begged for his supper and breakfast and they bedded him down for the night in the stable. His name was Ed Schiefflin, and he left the Drew ranch and went on to discover the fabulous Tombstone lode, around, which grew the fabled mining town, according to Cora. They saw him often afterward both at the ranch and in Tombstone but in time, he forgot those who had befriended him. The Tombstone claim, which was worthless, was discovered in April 1877. Another claim started about the same times was good and mining actually started on it. (It is possible that Cora meant the Commonwealth Mine found by Jimmy Pearce in 1893 and was about 25 mile east of Tombstone. No one knows

how much gold and silver it produced but accounts say at least $9 million in three years.) Harrison Drew, now 23, was able to secure the stage stop between Benson and Contention City in 1881. Contention was the first stage stop out of Tombstone. This was Drew’s Station.(Reference Arizona Place Names: Drew’s Station, Cochise County. “1881 this was a stage station owned by Harrison Drew 15 miles north of Tombstone on road to Benson. It was at this place Doc Holliday killed Budd Philpot.” In a letter from John Herron, archaeologist, San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, a survey in 1881 of the San Juan de las Boquillas y Nogales Land Grant of that year by Solon Allis, describes a “Drew House.” Mr. Herron was able to locate the site, and found a corner of an adobe structure at the edge of the San Pedro River. Mary Drew Aseltine placed a plaque at the site in March 1991. Letter 16 March 1991, reverse letter, John Herron, 12 December 1990.) It was 15 miles north of Tombstone on the road to Benson. They changed the four horses at the Drew’s and Mama Drew gave the passengers breakfast for a dollar apiece. Tombstone ran two stages daily. One was a second-class four-horse stage and the other, a first class sixhorse stage. Bud Philpot was

the driver of the first class stage, and the Drew children always got up and waved good-byes when he left late at night. Sixteen-year-old Edward had bought a large herd of burros and David Stuart and Cora Ann each had their favorite, which they rode constantly. When they heard that they had sold them, David and Cora left home as fast as they could, “which is not very fast on a burro.” They finally overtook and forced them to walk home, but their hearts’ were heavy, knowing that their “own personal” burros had been sold with the herd. Burros were used to carry most of the freight in Arizona then. A pack of about 50 mules used to stop at the house regularly loaded with burlap sacks of oranges that sold for fifty cents. The Drews commonly had all the fresh fruit they wanted. The Sulfur Springs Valley is known for its citrus orchards. Later in the 1880s the family became more financially independent and put any extra money into expanding the cattle herd. Cora forgot where they got their grain for the horses but remembered that the hay was wild grama [sic] grass, which was good feed and was plentiful. Gramma grass, called mesquite or buffalo grass, is an important member of a class of low growing grasses that are abundant in the Southwest. Cora’s memoirs, quoted

Cora Drew Reynolds, c. 1900 from “My Life in the Early West,” include those of several historical outlaws [explanatory notes and proper names added for clarity]: I don’t think that there has ever been a town anywhere that grew as fast as Tombstone. Most of the men that the movies and books have immortalized were intimate friends of my childhood. I knew “Curly Bill” [Brocius] well: he was tall, blond and heavy set and wore his hair like a girl in long curls and ringlets. The Earps, Harry Head, Doc Halliday [sic], Jim Crane,

Frank and Ed [Mc]Lowery, and Billie and Ike Clanton were frequent visitors to our ranch. They gave my mother their word and they kept it that she need never worry about our cattle being rustled. Desperados frequently came to our place; one day we heard the familiar sound of gunplay across the river and shortly thereafter four or five wild-eyed men arrived and demanded a horse of Mama saying, ‘Any horse will do as we shall soon get a good one.’ Of course Mama had to let them See Drew, Page 4

and the birth of their babies. He loved his family most of all. He was known for telling jokes that you were not sure were jokes until the very end and got a kick out of watching you laugh when you realized that he got one over on you. He was fond of animals and always had a few in the back yard, but he really loved raising and breeding his fighting chickens (which he never fought), he always had a garden, and especially loved his dog, Princess. Once Buster’s children all left home, he and Billie discovered Apache Gold Casino, where they spent many afternoons visiting with their friends. Buster stayed in contact with his Kennecott crew and enjoyed speaking with them and catching them up on his latest series of jokes and stories. Buster is survived by his loving wife, Billie Leep; sons, Faron Leep of Apache Junction and Johnny Leep and his fiancee Autumn Hulon; daughters, Sharon Listiak and her husband Keith Listiak of Claypool and Rebecka Clark and her husband Matthew J. Clark from Okmulgee, Oklahoma; grandchildren, Carla A. Anthony and her husband Brian, Jeremy Leep, Jarrod Listiak, Jessica Nehrmeyer (Listiak) and her husband Matthew, Tanya Weber (Ibarra) and her husband Raymondo, James Leep and Makayla Leep; great-grandchildren, Kristina Anthony, Jasmyne Anthony, Angel Ibarra and Colt Nehrmeyer. He was preceded in death by his granddaughter Sheri Leep and her baby, Krista Leep. Buster will be missed by all of those who loved him. Services are scheduled for Saturday, April 2, at 2 p.m. at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 617 Senator Chastain Street in Kearny, Arizona. A celebration of Buster Leep’s life will follow immediately after the memorial service at the Church of the Good Shepherd’s reception hall. All family, friends, his Apache Gold friends, and work buddies are welcome to attend. The family of Buster W. Leep wishes to express their sincere thanks and other expressions of love during their time of bereavement.

Lady Lobos host 20th annual tournament; Safford, San Manuel claim top two spots By Nolberto Waddell The 20th annual Lady Lobo softball tournament took place over the past weekend with 11 teams competing for the championship. The tournament was played on the Hayden Lobo softball field and the Hayden Little League field with 22 games played before a champion was crowned and there were plenty of exciting games on both days. Tournament action started on Friday, March 25, with the host Lady Lobos taking on the Lady Panthers of Superior on the high school field and the Lady Bulldogs of Safford High School tangling with the Coolidge Lady Bears on the Little League field. Hayden defeated the Lady Panthers with 12 to 0 score and the Safford team advanced with a 4 to 0 score over the Lady Bears. The Lady Miners of San Manuel High School took on the Lady Apaches of Nogales High School sending them to the loser’s bracket with a 10 to 0 pounding. With the Desert View High School team calling to drop out of the tournament because of financial problems, the Lobo coaching staff called on the Lady Lobo JV team to fill the spot so no team would be shorted out of games and they responded very well giving the Lady Tigers of Globe High School all they could handle in their first game before falling to the Lady Tigers with an eight inning 8 to 9 score to drop into the loser’s bracket. Up next at the high school field, the Lady Trojans of Catalina High School sent the Lady Lobo varsity team into the loser’s bracket with a 3 to 15 pounding while at the Little League field the Safford Bulldogs had an easy time with the Lady Hawks of Rio Rico High School defeating them 11 to 1. The Douglas Lady Bulldog team took the field against the Miners of San Manuel sending them into the loser’s bracket with a 13 to 3 score while in the first of the loser bracket games the Lobo replacement team took it on the chin with a 16 to 0 score from Coolidge. Two more loser bracket games followed with San Manuel pounding the Lady Panthers of Superior with a 19 to 2 score while in an exciting down to the last minute game the Nogales Lady Apaches defeated the Lady Lobo varsity team with a 5 to 4 score. The tournament moved to the winner’s bracket for the final two games on Friday and both turned out to be very close and exciting. In the first game, the Globe Lady Tigers took care of business sending the Lady Trojans of Catalina to the loser’s bracket with a 6 to 2 score and in the final game of the day one of the more exciting games of the tournament had the Safford Bulldogs defeating the Lady Bulldogs of Douglas with a nine inning 2 to 1 score. The next day had San Manuel starting an outstanding comeback in the loser’s bracket defeating the Rio Rico Lady Hawks in the first game on Saturday with a 14 to 3 score. Rio Rico than took the field again in a guaranteed third game losing to the Lady Panthers of Superior with a 12 to 8 score. Coolidge and Nogales tangled next with the loser going home and the winner advancing and the winner turned out to be Coolidge with a 9 to 3 score over Nogales. Continuing elimination games, Douglas sent the Lady Bears of Coolidge home with an 11 to 8 score while San Manuel continued their run to the championship game with a 12 to 5 win over the Catalina team to end their tournament play.

Pinal County Sheriff’s Report

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Report is taken from the daily logs, based on the information provided by deputies. All persons arrested are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. March 18 Alan Dale Johnson, 48, Dudleyville, was arrested in the area of Cholla and Palo Verde, Dudleyville, on two warrants for interfering with judicial proceedings. He was transported and booked into the Pinal County Jail in Florence. March 21 Burglary was reported at Hayden Junction. Miscellaneous items were taken from a shed.

In a winner’s bracket game, the Safford team had little trouble with the Lady Tigers of Globe dropping them to the loser’s bracket with a 16 to 0 score and headed into the championship game awaiting an opponent. San Manuel continued their great run in the loser’s bracket. Trailing 7 to 1 heading into the third inning, the Lady Miners exploded for 12 runs in the top of the third and held the tough Lady Bulldogs of Douglas scoreless the rest of the game to send them home with a 13 to 7 win to advance in the tournament. The tournament was now down to the final three teams. In the game that would give the third place plaque to the loser, the Lady Miners would have no part of the third place finish having an easy time with the Globe Tigers sending them home with the third place plaque and advancing to the championship game with a 15 to 0 win. Waiting for the Lady Miners were the Lady Bulldogs of Safford and what a game it turned out to be for the first place plaque. The Lady Bulldogs took a 2 to 0 lead at the end of the first inning but the game turned into a pitching duel between the Bulldogs’ Brittney Zuniga-Romero and the Miners’ EmmyLou Clark. With a runner on base and one out, the Miners’ Noelle Medina blasted the first pitch from Zuniga-Romero over the left centerfield fence to tie the game at two apiece and that’s the way it would stay as Clark and ZunigaRomero battled until the bottom of the seventh inning when the Lady Bulldogs pushed a runner across the plate to win the game and claim the championship for the second year with the 3 to 2 score. The Safford team was very tough and very good but the Lady Miners of San Manuel were just as good and just as tough having to fight their way into the championship game playing five games on Saturday winning four and losing in the championship game. Congratulations to both teams on an exciting tournament and an even more exciting championship game. The 20th Annual Lobo Softball Tournament had a 20 member alltournament team with every team participating getting a player on the team.

Local fighters competing again this Saturday in San Manuel The Uptown Fight Night is back at it again this Saturday, April 2, in San Manuel with an action packed card of local heroes and fighters from afar. Uptown will host its second professional and amateur mixed martial arts event completely sanctioned by the Arizona Boxing Commission featuring professional fighter Roman “El Gallito” Salazar from Mammoth vs Eloy’s very own

Ramon “Budda” Salazar in the 155-pound pro weight class as the main event. Both fighters have pre-fight interview videos posted on the web and the tension can’t get any thicker or it could be cut with a knife! Roman Salazar performance from his last pro fight in December is still captivating online viewers, and those who didn’t make it, still wish they had seen it live.

“You don’t want to miss this one,” Roman said. “Aleman has made this fight into a small town rivalry and I’m going to represent my hometowns to the fullest.” The fight card will feature local Hayden High School graduate Kyle Duthie taking on Sahaurita’s Peter De La Cruz. Other fighters featured from Mammoth and San Manuel are Jonathon Sanchez, Jeremy

Sanchez, Monchi Salazar, and Pablo Robles all making their mma amateur debuts, Other fighters featured from small towns like are Catalina’s Andrew Perez, Globe’s Jeff Horlacher, and fighters from Tucson and Phoenix. Uptown likes to make note that the safety of the fighters is the number one priority. All fighters have undergone medical examinations including blood

work, eye exams, and physicals. Two licensed Medical Doctors will be on staff working the event, an ambulance and trained EMT’s will be on stand by. The MMA promotion would also like to thank locally own business owners who sponsored the event Black Widow Customs, Blue Thorn Demolition, Unaffiliated Fighter Co, and Bea’s Bar and Grill. Ticket and fight card information can be found at

www.uptownfights.com. Open public weigh-ins will be hosted Saturday, April 2, at Bea’s Bar at 3:30 p.m.; doors open at 6 p.m. to the fight at the San Manuel High School Auditorium and the first bout starts at 7 p.m. all on the same day. Please come out and enjoy the Copper Corridor’s only and first ever professional sport while it’s still local.

By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter With Spring Break in the air, it is entirely possible that athletes had their minds on things other than the game…like no homework and a little vacation. However, this is a hard line to believe due to the dedication that the teams show to their sports and in turn the dedication that these coaches show to their teams; it’s just hard to believe that their minds were on something else. It’s a little easier to believe that the teams they were playing were simply just good teams. This was the case when the Bearcats came up against both

the boys from Florence and the Lobos of Hayden. Last week, Coach White noted that these would be difficult teams and indeed they were. On Tuesday, March 22, the team went up against Florence in a simply glaring and intense game…you could literally cut the tension with a knife. The Bearcats responded well when the opposing team gave them a chance to, but these chances were slim as Florence was undeniably well prepared for the game. The final score of the game was 6-17 and thus has given the Bearcats a crash course in areas that they

can improve on and how to work like cogs in an impeccably timed clock. Next they went on to play the Hayden Lobos a few miles from home and this game fared slightly better than the last. Ray beat Hayden the last time they met in Ray on March 18 and this probably amped up the Lobos for a little bit of payback when they brought the Bearcats to their home field. The game ended 5-10 and while it was not a win, it was not a shut-out either. Coach White knows how to rally the team and keep them focused on what is important.

The Ladies had a markedly better week as they went up against their opponents from near and not so far. In their first games against Florence, the girls kept it so ridiculously close that undoubted sweat was appearing on the foreheads of all involved. Extreme would be a mild way of describing this game, with all parents and fans screaming their cheers in the most fervent fashion possible…understanding to the nth degree that their athlete had what it takes to win. The passion for the game was easy to see on the faces of all the girls playing and they most certainly

worked their behinds off for a win. Though the game ended without a win at 6-7, it was so remarkably close that they deserve a huge pat on the back. Losses as close as these are hard to palate, they leave a pit in one’s stomach that nothing can really fix and it’s a total bummer. Yet, the girls went on to do so much better during their game against the Lady Lobos that this indeed helped that pit. While this game too was insufferably close, the Lady Bearcats brought out all the magic to make it happen. With athletes like Amber Rodriguez, Anissa Newman, Paula Real,

and Lacee Reidhead, the magic is easy to drop in the laps of their opponents. The girls brought home the bacon with a winning score of 14-13. Woooo-Whooo! At press time, both teams were playing the Vandals of Miami in Ray, but scores were not yet available. Following this game, the boys have a break from games until they resume play in San Tan on April 14. The Lady Bearcats will play on Thursday, March 31, in Salt River at 4 p.m. and then will also have a break until April 14. Come out and SHOW SOME SUPPORT! Day trips are fun!

The Ninth Annual Queen Valley Scrap rats Quilt Show, held on March 5, was a rousing success, with a near-record turnout, generous publicity from local newspapers, and over 150 quilted items on display. Linda McDermott, this year’s featured quilter, shared her experiences, family and quilting, while displaying her many lovely quilted items. Her daughter, Jenny Satterthwait who is also a quilter, was able to attend,

from Colorado, to share in the special day. Blue ribbons and Viewer’s Choice certificates were awarded to exhibitors in eight different categories. To highlight a few special prize winners: veteran prize winner and long time resident, Agnes Metzgar, won, this year, in Best Show and Best Large Quilt, for her quilt, Dogwood, which she hand appliquéd and quilted over the last three years. In addition, Pat Uittenbogaard, received the

special recognition ribbon from the Arizona Hall of Fame, which is awarded to an outstanding quilt that exemplifies superb quality and exceptional workmanship, for her quilt, Blue Hawaii, which she had hand quilted using fabrics she had bought while on a trip to Hawaii. For those who would like to see this quilt, or, learn more about quilting shows, should visit: http://www. arizonaquiltershalloffame. org/

“To learn about all of our Quilt Show winners, see the adjoining photo page. Our show continues to be so successful due to the dedication and spirit of our Scrap Rat members to this event with the extraordinary help of the volunteers from the community, the Q.V. Homeowners Association, the Q.V. RV Resort and the Q.V. Baptist Church. We greatly appreciate the generosity of all the quilt owners who allowed us to

share their beautiful works of art and skill in order to promote interest in the history and education of quilting. We also wish to thank all of those who attended and purchased tickets for the Scrap Rats Opportunity Quilt. The Opportunity Quilt, Star Light, Star Bright, was won by Jane Norris, who winters in Florence and comes from British Columbia,Canada.” says a representative of Queen Valley Scrap Rats. The Queen Valley Scrap Rats

are a non-profit organization. Moneys raised help to support a yearly adopted charity, as well as other service projects. This year, charity funds are being donated to the Queen Valley Fire Auxiliary in the amount of $1000. “Without the community’s continued interest and participation, our charitable contributions and Show would not be possible. Thank you again from the Queen Valley Scrap Rats,” said their representative.

work of ranching, and there was always something to keep them busy on our Aravaipa Creek ranch. The same for their cousins, Lynn and Marty, sons of Fred and Alice Wood. When there was no danger of the creek flooding, many good

times were had in the creek, especially where we had the dirt dam in the creek to supply water to the irrigation ditch. The kids would grab hold of a rope that was tied to a high cottonwood tree limb, then swing out over the pond of

water and fall in. In the earlier years, the creek area there was quiet, except for the sounds of the birds and water, because it was rare to see other people there. The kids also enjoyed fun with their friends, by hiking and taking pack trips, but there

were times I didn’t know about their bluff climbing! Our children also formed their own opinions about the changes that were taking place concerning Aravaipa Creek, and, hopefully, I will get to some of those stories.

Bud away in a spring-wagon. Early the next morning the Earp brothers arrived with the sheriff [Behan] and Mama gave them breakfast. We told then what we knew and they left in pursuit of the robbers, only they went in the opposite direction from what we had told them. There is not a doubt in the world but what they were the holdup men! A week or so later we three children [David, Charles and Cora] went to a cluster of trees west of the wash where the holdup had been and we found a black horse tied to a tree, all but dead from thirst and hunger. We had to take his feed to him for days before he could be brought to the stable. We told the sheriff but the horse was never claimed. We later found out that on the night of Bud’s murder, Hollydan [sic] - an Earp henchman brought his horse to the livery stable covered with sweat and he himself was staggering from hard riding. The Earps were also out of Tombstone that night! Shortly thereafter Ike Clanton (Gordon Brenner, Cora’s nephew, remembers her tell the family during a visit that Ike was her favorite. It seems that her always gave her a silver dollar when he visited.) came to our house and wanted to give me a diamond ring that had belonged to his mother; Mama would not let me have it. Ike said ‘Let Cora have it as it is only matter of time until the Earps and Hollydan [sic] get me.’ Soon thereafter they did! (Tombstone historical notes by Wallace Clayton, publisher of the National Tombstone Epitaph and historian. He was not able to find anything in his search on the Drew family. Due to his familiarity with history of the Tombstone area he finds many

of Cora’s remembrance of the local history doubtful, IE. the diamond ring incident. The name Hollydan and Halliday are probably reference to Doc Holliday.) About the famous shootout at the OK Corral on 26 October 1881, Cora says: Not long after this my brother Ed and I were walking down the main street of Tombstone when we saw Tom and Frank McLowery with Ike Clanton’s brother Billy coming toward us. Suddenly from a side street came the Earp boys and they opened fire killing the three men instantly. The three murdered men had been at a distinct disadvantage as they had put their guns up along with their horses when they came into town. So far as I know I am the only person living who saw this famous western murder. It is the absolute truth when I say the Earps committed it in this cold-blooded way and then went unpunished . . . The Clantons and McLowerys were between two homes at the rear entrance of the OK Corral. The Earp group walked down Fremont Street to where the Clantons and McLowery were. Several people saw the gunfight and many testified at the preliminary hearing. The Drews were not among these who testified. It is possible that Mama Drew would not let the children get involved and was protecting the family from possible retribution. (Extracted from “How I routed a gang of Arizona Outlaws” by Wyatt Earp. This appeared in 1896 in the San Francisco Examiner. “Ike Clanton was joined by Billy Clanton, Tom McLowery [McLaury], Frank and Billy Clayton [Claiborne]. They came into town loaded

with ammunition and swearing to kill the Earps. These men were stationed on a 15-foot lot between 2 buildings on Fremont Street and sent word that the Earps should come down. Doc Holliday, Virgil the Us Deputy Marshal, Morgan and I went after them..” Edward would have been 15 and Cora only 8.) Cora’s story continues . . . . . .When such tragedy is stamped upon a child’s brain she will carry it to her grave. A little later one my own brothers was murdered by an outlaw in Pima [County]. The murderer was caught and sentenced to life in the Arizona State Penitentiary. The last I knew of William “Billie the kid” Claibourne was that he was killed while leading a band of Indians on the warpath. I’m not sure whether these were Apache or Yaqui Indians. He put a notch in his gun every time he killed a man and when they found him there were 21 notched. William “Billy the Kid” Bonney, the son of Catherine McCarthy and William Antrim, was killed by Frank Leslie at the corner of Fifth and Allen Streets in Tombstone on Nov. 14, 1882. It is believed that he killed only seven or eight men. On Dec. 22, 1881 Ann Drew and the New Mexico and Arizona Railroad made an agreement, for $70, to deed to the NM and AZ RR 6 and 2/3 acres of the property that she owned then. Court documents show that she is a widow. When the railroad went through Contention and Tombstone the Drews sold their home and moved near Charlestown [C. 1884], a neighboring mining camp west of Tombstone, onto D. T. Smith’s old place. D. T.

Smith was a Cochise County Deputy Sheriff, whom had been killed in the Bisbee Massacre, Dec. 8, 1883. Mama Drew and Cora each of them drove a team of horses and the brothers followed along with the cattle. The family lived on the Smith place only a few months. By 1890 the family had moved to the Drew Ranch in the Galiuros Mountain Range. Ed Drew had established a ranch, in partnership with Mel Jones, near the home of Dr. King. The Hot Springs area was a thriving community of several families. The ranch consisted of a one-room house with adjoining bunkhouse for hired hands. Soon, Ed moved Ann, Cora, David and Charles to live there. Rooms were added to suit the growing family. As Ed got further employment, Harrison and Charles took over management of the family enterprise. David had moved to Wilcox and had a butcher shop, which the family chiefly supplied. Due to Indian uprisings in the area the Drew family spent many sleepless nights armed and prepared for an attack. Ed Drew kept two “vicious” bulldogs that were afraid to leave the house when the Indians were in the neighborhood. Often noises that should have been from Owls and coyotes were made by the Indians. More than once the family witnesses the Apaches breaking the troughs and slaughtering yearling calves. (Hot Springs MS p 21.) During the year of 1892 Arizona experience a sever drought which caused the family economic problems. Starving cattle were shipped and sold at a loss. The drought lasted until mid July of 1893.

Georgie Digs By Georgie Wood (ggannwood@yahoo.com) The annual Pioneer Days parade in Kearny always makes me think of so many people and events of the past. I can easily visualize my children’s pioneer grandfather, Martin Wood,

riding a horse at the head of the parade, with his youngest son, Cliff, riding by his side. I am very thankful for the legacy they handed down to Cliff’s and my children, Ann, Francie, and Neal. Those children quickly learned and partook in the hard

if a bunch of firecrackers were going off into the distance. My brother Ed went down to the stage and found Bud dead on top.(Per Wyatt Earp’s account - Drew’s Station, 15 miles from Tombstone on the San Pedro River. The Stage left Tombstone at 7 o’clock. A bout 300 yards above the Drew’s Station, the road cut a deep ravine where Bud Philpot was ambushed and killed. The stagecoach guard, Bob Paul, tried to catch him before he fell under the wheels. Bob Paul was able to stop the coach 2 miles later and drove onto Benson. At Benson Bob mounted a horse and rode back to Tombstone to notify Virgil of the “Murders” - one of the passengers was, also, killed. The robbers did not get the cargo. Wyatt goes on to tell of how easy it was to find the holdup men’s horses was. It is of interest that Virgil was the Deputy U.S. Marshall until 28 December 1881, not Wyatt. Sheriff Johnny Behan was a political rival of the Earps.) Ed saddled a horse and went to Contention to tell of the holdup and murder and shortly men came from Tombstone and took

Continued from Page 1 Community Action Human Resources Agency (CAHRA) out of Eloy. CAHRA provides mortgage and utility assistance. Although they’re out of Eloy, they provide assistance to people throughout the county. With so many services and communities, Beverly herself is still learning everything the United Way and Pinal County has to offer. She’s been reading up on the county and traveling around visiting people and communities. “I’m trying to get caught up and learn what this United Way is doing in every community. We’re running a couple programs out of our office and some don’t do that,” she said. United Way of Pinal County runs three programs: Friend, Family and Neighbors Caregivers Outreach Project, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), and Success by Six. Beverly has a lot of work to do but she’s up to the challenge. “I’m just happy to be here,” she said. “I’m representing Pinal County and I’m going to serve it.”
