Who are the SunZia project supporters? Part 3 By Peter Else Many of us in the Aravaipa region do not understand how an environmental organization can remain non-committal about a project that will, according to the best available third party information, significantly increase greenhouse gas emissions and initiate a chain of significant impacts in major wilderness zones in Arizona and New Mexico. After the BLM continued to

exaggerate renewable energy claims in the draft EIS and in the associated public indoctrination sessions, it should have been clear to any responsible environmental group that the process was rigged. Assuming that the New Mexico wind segment of the project is even constructed, the best case scenario for renewable energy development on these lines would be a 50/50 mix with fossil fuel

resources, an unacceptable situation at this advanced point in the recognition of the causes of climate change. The worst case scenario is also a distinct possibility, with renewable energy only being developed at a token level, due to current market conditions. What really confounds me is that all of these organizations continued to straddle the fence or even promote SunZia, when clear and present alternatives are available to achieve the stated objectives of developing renewable energy in a logical manner and upgrading our transmission grid without fragmenting wilderness zones. The actions of these groups have made it much more

difficult to get the oversight agency to consider documents and comments that contradict the prevailing talking points, to make corrections to BLM documents and presentations in a timely manner (or at all), to encourage open and public commenting on the narrative presented by the contracted environmental firm at the BLM’s public meetings, and to avoid the now inevitable litigation by conducting a NEPA process that adheres to the legal precedence of fostering meaningful and informed participation by the public and stakeholders. By getting too close to the proponents, the first three groups listed above helped to put this project on a fast track to a foregone conclusion. The

other groups listed above are playing a significant supporting role. Now that these groups have given the proponents just about everything they wanted during the most influential portions of the federal approval process, it is not clear what they could do to reverse this damage. If the project is approved, the three lead groups will be remembered as snake oil peddlers, who sold out important environmental values in order to advance illconceived political interests as grand bargainers. While most citizens agree with President Obama’s intent to develop renewable energy resources, his administration made a mistake in putting this particular project on the fast track. These three environmental groups placed more emphasis on political influence than on environmental principles. They did not speak truth to power, and they are on the wrong side of history. Adding to this sad legacy is the fact that they made their critical draft EIS comments during the hottest year currently on record in North America. The transmission towers scarring the previously undisturbed vista of the Galiuro wilderness zone would become a monument to the gullibility and poor judgement of all the groups involved in these draft EIS comments. These groups will own this

project, if it is constructed. We don’t need to wait until this thing is built to finally figure out that it will not reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and will not facilitate over 80 percent development of renewable energy resources, and that this industrial-scale infrastructure corridor, along with everything else that follows its new path, will have very real effects on important ecosystems. Wouldn’t it be a much better bet to focus on projects that don’t have to lie about their climate change impact in order to justify significant environmental impacts on the ground? Responsible environmental groups have responded with a resounding “Yes!” Among others, these groups include a lot of the locals here in the southern Arizona conservation community, such as Tucson Audubon Society, Grand Canyon Chapter of the Sierra Club, Archaeology Southwest, Defenders of Wildlife, Cascabel Working Group, Sky Island Alliance, Center for Biological Diversity, Coalition for Sonoran Desert Protection, Pima County Administrator’s Office, Peter Warshall and Associates, and other groups outside of this region whose draft EIS comments I have not read yet. Two local Natural Resource Conservation Districts have spearheaded a three-year attempt to get the BLM to provide an objective description of the project’s impact on probable energy development and on consistency with local conservation policies. Also, a local landholding group here in the Aravaipa region, The Nature Conservancy, has recommended avoidance of all lower San Pedro routes, in accordance with their well-documented understanding of the ecological importance of the region, as well as the equally important SunZia, Page 16

Arm yourselves with the facts about SunZia During the election process this last year, I set out to learn more about our region and county. While the entire county is important, this southeast region of Pinal County is very important because I call it home. While economic development and jobs take center stage, the natural resources of this area and its uniqueness of open space and trails are also of particular interest given my past involvement in natural resource issues at the state level for 12 years. While on the campaign trail, I spoke with various representatives to seek their views on two issues, the SunZia Transmission line project, and to learn about the San Pedro River. I found the latest reporting of the SunZia project in the Miner to be extremely interesting as it confirms what I was told: that to run this project through these wild lands was the path of least resistance and would cost less. I learned that various groups have been studying this issue for years, and that the project is a pass-through of energy from New Mexico to expand the California electric grid. It was voiced by several people that there would be little to no benefit to Arizona. It is difficult to understand how BLM can violate its own directive to co-locate new infrastructure with existing lines or corridors to the highest degree possible among all the route alternatives. There is a second project, the Southline Transmission Project which would follow the existing corridor closer to Tucson and following the I-10 Interstate. Yes, it might cost more, but doesn’t it make more sense to follow an existing corridor than to construct new paths, destroying what we in rural Arizona consider of value and an important part of our lifestyle? We choose to live in a rural area, but that should not be interpreted to mean we

are the path of least resistance. Citizens need to be informed and I believe the Miner’s article on SunZia will be an eye opener for everyone who loves this area. I look forward to the continuing article. District One residents should learn more about the SunZia project. We need to empower ourselves to have a voice in all of this. While the Arizona Corporation Commission makes the final decision, the previous Board of Supervisors sent a letter to the BLM encouraging BLM to move forward on the SunZia Project. I would ask the new Board of Supervisors to revisit that letter and question locating the transmission lines through any of the routes suggested by SunZia and learn whether the project has any real value for us. If appropriate, the BOS should be encouraged to send another letter to BLM with a copy to the Arizona Corporation Commission that reflects the citizen voice on this issue. Lastly, consider the protection of the San Pedro River. The river flows 140 miles north through Cochise County, Pima County, Graham County, and Pinal County to its confluence with the Gila River, at Winkelman, Arizona. It is the last major, free-flowing undammed river in the American southwest, and it is of major ecological importance as it hosts twothirds of the avian diversity in the United States, including 100 species of breeding birds and 300 species of migrating birds.meanders from the south near Benson and through Mammoth and northward until it meets the Gila River. I met with representatives of the Nature Conservancy, and the Natural Resource Conservation District to learn about the ongoing collaborative effort to protect the San Pedro River. I also attended a Board of Supervisor meeting to hear a presentation on the cultural resources in Pinal

County. Later, I contacted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Phoenix to learn more about their efforts and studies of the river. Attending the Pinal County Open Space and Trails meetings has been a learning experience as well, and I commend their work to provide a final report, that

you can find at: XMvXdB. Decisions should be based on facts. There are organizations such as the U.S. & Fish and Wildlife Service, the Redington and Winkelman Natural Resource Conservation Districts, Arizona Game and Fish, Cascabel Working Group and others who are

Safe Journey House here to help Last night, one of our neighbors cried herself to sleep. She was slapped, punched or choked by someone that she loves— again. She thinks that she has done something to deserve being abused, but, nobody deserves to be hurt, physically or mentally, by anyone else! Especially by someone you love or trust. Today, her abuser will tell her how sorry he is. He will promise her that he will never hit her again. She will want to believe him and forgive him, because she loves him. He has convinced her, over time, that she has nowhere else to go and they have moved away from her family and close friends. No one else wants her. Nobody else loves her. The pattern of abuse and control will probably continue until she leaves or something happens to stop him. Although physical abuse is against the law, the victim seldom reports the incident, because of love for the abuser or fear of retribution. Domestic violence and domestic abuse are patterns of behavior that are used to exert power and control over the victim. The abuse can take many forms, such as emotional, physical, isolation, financial, psychological or sexual. The victims are of all ages, races, sexes, cultures, religions, educational background, employment situations and marital status. Anyone can be a victim. The pattern of abuse will continue until the cycle is broken. And don’t be mistaken: domestic abuse exists in our communities. It exists in the lives of our sisters, brothers and friends. It can be in any home, in any neighborhood. Chances are pretty good that you know someone that is being abused. Someone you know is living in fear every day. A relative, a friend or neighbor is in a situation that could be life

threatening. What can we do to stop the pain? How do we let them know there is hope? How can we help someone escape from the fear of physical abuse? Get information. Give support. Volunteer.

We the People to host informative meeting on U.N. Agenda 21 Oracle – Most Americans haven’t heard of U.N. Agenda 21, but as there are already over 1,000 cities or communities that have signed up for it, it is an important issue on which to educate yourself. Agenda 21 is a 300-page document that, according to the United Nations, makes up a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development. The document’s four sections address issues like the combating of poverty by changing consumption patterns, protecting fragile environments, and strengthening the

roles of major groups like including women, local authorities, and indigenous peoples. Section IV addresses the ways and methods of implementation through science, technology transfer, education, international institutions and financial mechanisms. While Agenda 21 is seen as an effective means of controlling and maintaining communities in a safe and productive manner, it is seen by some as social engineering that is little more than communism or neoNazism in disguise. On Jun. 13, 1992, Agenda 21 was revealed at a

United Nations conference on Environment and Development. At this conference, 178 governments voted to adopt the program. According to Wikipedia, European countries generally possess well documented Agenda 21 statuses. France, whose national government, along with 14 cities, is a signatory, boasts nationwide programs supporting Agenda 21. Like Australia, however, some opponents have expressed that they view Agenda 21 as a “sham.” Despite that the United States of America is a signatory country to the Agenda, the Senate has not been able to hold a formal debate or vote regarding it since it is not a treaty. It has not been ratified by the Executive Branch of the United States of America. There are members of the government which have spoken in Congress in support of U.N. Agenda 21, and many cities within the USA are members of ICLEI, an international organization that helps (or enforces, depending

on your viewpoint) the implementation of Agenda 21. Opposition has increased at all levels of the government, including the Republican Party, making a statement that they strongly reject the U.N Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty. On Sat., Mar. 9 there will be a free presentation for those who want to learn more about this agenda and ways to protect your family from global societal engineering. It will be held at the Oracle Court House, 1470 Justice Drive, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 am. Whatever your viewpoint on U.N. Agenda 21, this is a great opportunity for further educating yourself on what may be the most important document backed by the United States government since the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

Lifeline helicopter visits San Manuel By John Hernandez Living in a rural area usually means one is far away from an emergency trauma center. If someone is seriously injured in an accident or have a heart attack or stroke, reducing the time of travel to an emergency medical facility is of the utmost importance. The quicker you arrive at a level 1 trauma center, the better your survival and recovery rate. The quickest emergency transport available is by a medical helicopter (air ambulance). Arizona Lifeline is an air ambulance service that is part of the AirMedCare Network, an alliance of MedTrans, Air Evac Lifeteam and EagleMed, creating the largest air ambulance membership network in the country. Some employees of Lifeline were at San Manuel High School on Tuesday to speak to the public about an insurance/

membership plan that pays for the cost of air ambulance service. The crew for the Lifeline air ambulance was Royce the pilot, flight nurse Noel Dolby, Gale Clawson, and David Carter. David is from San Manuel and is part of the San Manuel volunteer Fire Depart-

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.

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

Continued from Page 8 County Wellness Center which will be a medical marijuana dispensary in Duddleyville. The permit has already been approved by Pinal County Planning and Zoning and will need approval by the Pinal County Board of Supervisors to move forward for development. The application has been submitted by Paul Shaub and Glenn Wilt, who is the land owner for this facility. A public notice placed in the Copper Basin News by Pinal County suggests that local residents help to inform other residents who may not see the notice of the upcoming hearing.

Oracle School Board renews Kissick’s contract By John Hernandez At the Oracle School District 2 Board meeting held on Tuesday Feb. 19, the Board voted to renew Superintendent Todd Kissick’s contract for one year. After hearing the public speak against and for the renewal of a multi-year contract for Mr. Kissick, the Board voted 4-1 to renew the contract but just for one year instead of a multi-year contract. President of the Board Nellie Doran voted against renewing Kissick’s contract. In other news, the 8th grade Lady Cougars basketball team was recognized.

San Manuel swimmers compete at Regional championship meet in Yuma

The Regional Age Group Championship Swim Meet was held February 22 to 24 at the Valley Aquatic Center in Yuma, Arizona. Thirteen teams from western and southern Arizona competed at the meet. In the final team standings, the San Manuel Sea Lions received fifth place with 235 points. Swimmers must have achieved regional qualifying times at sanctioned USA swim meets to be eligible to swim in the regional meet. Five swimmers from San Manuel qualified for individual events and an

additional 3 swimmers were able to participate in the relays. The team from San Manuel was one of the smaller teams at the meet, but the distinctive Sea Lion swim cap was usually seen at or near the front of every race they swam. Medals were awarded for the top three finishers and all eight Sea Lions came home with at least a couple of medals. The girls relay team of Gianna Sweeney (11),

Darien Apuron (11), Royann Estrada (11) and Tabitha Kellam (9) finished third in both the 200 Medley and 400 Medley Relays. The Boys relay team of Evan Apuron (9), Riley Stewart (9), Mason Stewart (7), and Ethan Kellam (7) finished second in both the 200 Medley and 200 Freestyle Relays. “The relays showed what a strong team we are,” head coach Alex Gort

said. “We were able to put together relays that competed against the some of the best teams in Arizona, and were able to bring home medals.” The relays went well for the Sea Lions, but some individual swims were simply outstanding. Darien Apuron won the 400 Individual Medley (IM), the event widely regarded as a complete measure of a swimmer since it involves all four strokes and is of considerable distance. Tabitha Kellam came home with bronze medals in the 100 Butterfly and the 100 Freestyle. Gianna Sweeney earned medals of all types, winning the 50 Breaststroke, finishing second in the 200 Backstroke, and finishing third in the 100 IM and 200 Breaststroke. The 9-year old boys from San Manuel also had a great meet. Evan Apuron won all three races that he swam, the 100, 200 and 500 Freestyle. Riley Stewart won the 50 and 100 Breaststroke, as well as the 200 IM. Riley finished second to teammate Evan in the 200 Free, and picked up a bronze medal in the 50 backstroke. Three swimmers have qualified for the Age Group State Championship Meet to be held March 7 to 11 in Phoenix. Riley Stewart, Evan Apuron, and Gianna Sweeney will be competing in a total of 16 events against the best in Arizona. Anyone who would like more information about the Sea Lions Swim team can contact Alex Gort at 8962190.

Continued from Page 9 Oakland Athletics. A 70-mile roundtrip flight in an air ambulance costs about $14,000. If you do not have health insurance this can be a big burden on a family’s finances. Even if you have health insurance, many policies only pay a portion of the cost leaving you still owing thousands of dollars. By joining the AirMedCare Network, someone will have no out-of-pocket flight expenses if they are flown by one of their participating providers, the employees explained. The highlight of the presentation may have been the landing of a Lifeline air ambulance at the high school. A number of students and passers by that witnessed the landing came over to see the air ambulance and even got to sit in the helicopter posing for pictures. The crew members were friendly

and explained the equipment that was in the air ambulance. They answered questions and interacted with the crowd that had gathered. Noel, a flight Nurse told me that they made the flight from Tucson to San Manuel in 15 minutes. She said the average flight time is around 16 to 18 minutes but they had a good tail wind. Lifeline is one of the few air ambulance services that when they are notified of an emergency and placed on standby, they launch and begin flying towards the emergency site to cut flight time should they be activated. Other air ambulance services wait until they are actually called for the transport before launching. Their air ambulances are equipped with the latest state of the art safety equipment. The speakers explained the program and answered questions. Many, if not all those in attendance, signed up for the membership.

The cost for having some peace of mind was $50 a year for a one-member household, $55 a year for a two-person household and $60 per year for a three or more member house hold. As one person said at the meeting, the cost is about the price of going out to a good restaurant for dinner with your wife. To enroll in the membership plan by phone, call 1-800-7930010 or online at
