Regarding ‘Councilman Brewer speaks out’ (Editor’s note: this letter has not been edited for content or otherwise. It is published exactly as it was submitted.) I think that’s all Councilman Brewer does is speak and never listen and never observes. I will say Mr. Brewer’s statement about being intimidated during a meeting and feeling abused was a complete lie. I don’t know what meeting you attended Mr. Brewer but your’re
far from being a victim. If I remember correctly were you not the same person wearing t-shirts that stated “The Tormentor” to past council meetings and around town? Were you not asked to leave past council meetings for being disruptive, once walking out making the statement “Monkey Court!” It seems like several meetings now the Mayor has to stop you from being disruptive due to you wanting to speak

about negative things only. Why don’t you speak about the positive things going on in our town? Why don’t you attend meetings where they talk about economic growth in the area? I didn’t see you at the meeting involving the casino, and I also didn’t see you at the meeting when Council voted to buy property to benefit our town. I
don’t see you at the youth groups, senior citizens meetings, swap meets, employees luncheons, employee Christmas party, out of town meetings, promotions, or other positive functions. Oh but we did see you running down to Main Street and McFarland to take pictures of a minor accident involving a palm tree; and

we can only imagine who called you with this big news. Is that what your’re all about Mr. Brewer being negative and listening to anything negative. I will say this because I do speak my mind. I thought I voted for a person who wanted positive change in our town, not person with personal agendas at every meeting, or a person who makes trips to the office because of a “rumor.” I didn’t vote for a person who goes around town talking to those who like to bad mouth our Town Council in the paper, or persons disrespecting our town manager by referring to her as a town clerk in a recent article. Why were you not mentioned in the same article about missing meetings only others were, how convenient is that (one sided). The Council I serve are doing a great job and also have a lot of Mammoth citizen support. This council is very active in the community with the seniors, youth groups, several out of town meetings to benefit our town, and positive changes for growth. I also didn’t forget a recent council meeting where you gave yourself all the credit for the neighborhood watch program, and never mentioned my officer who did a lot of work on the same program. You should
give the officer at pat on the back for his hard work and not your’re own. The Mammoth employee’s are working hard to better our town so why don’t you talk about that. The town pars and roads are shaping up why don’t you put that in the paper. No you want to write about a council member resigning matters going to court, and getting copies of minutes and tapes? it feels like Patricia Johnson all over again. What Council member resigned Mr. Brewer please show everyone this document. You also want to mudsling about the Mayor being late to a discussion and you not wanting to repeat yourself. That same Councilman has a 40 plus hour a week job not to mention his long drive to and from work, weekly meetings, family time, and is not retired with much time on his hands. Mr. Brewer maybe it’s time you try talking things out with your peers instead of listening to negative rumors around town and always trying to stir the pot. Hang in there Mayor, Vice Mayor, and the rest of the positive Council because there are many citizens in Mammoth supporting you, and I feel good things are coming by the end of this year. /s/ M. L.

Be wary of calls from those promising something too good to be true – it just might be Today I received a call from a man, who had a slight accent, who said he was from the U.S. Gaming Board. I didn’t know exactly what that was, and he said it is the national board that handles prize and contest winnings. He informed me that back in December, I had entered a contest, and actually won $750,000. I was supposed to have received three notifications about this, and why didn’t I respond? Ha! Really? I decided right away that this was a scam, and told him so. He was very persuasive, and said that of course, he would never scam anyone. I said that next he would be asking me
for money. ‘Well ‘ma’am, actually to be honest with you, we do need to make sure that your money will be insured by Brinks, and that it gets to you safely, and you will need to deposit $1,000 for us to insure the money.’ I said I didn’t have $1,000, and he said it was okay, that I could do it in increments. I told him just to send the money to my door, but by that time he had hung up. I figured that if I had entered a contest, he would of course have my address (which I knew he didn’t have). I called the police nonemergency number to ask if I should report this call. (520 866 5111). An

officer who handles fraud cases like this called back. He said it is shocking how many people fall for this scam, and send money. Then send more money. They drain their bank accounts, just to get what the caller offers. He says that one of these companies originates in Jamaica. That
would account for the slight accent I heard. He the FBI is already investigating. The whole point of this letter is: DO NOT FALL FOR CALLS LIKE THIS!! If anyone asks you for money so they can send you money, or it seems too good to be true, then it IS too good to be true!

Oracle School District Board is working! During Oracle’s March 25 School Board District meeting, the Board and audience received a presentation at 5:30 p.m. by the Auditor General staff. Audits are scheduled as routine business at all school districts. The staff explained what audits do and don’t do. They do not tell school districts how to correct anything that may be out of compliance. They examine fluctuations, compliance procedures of grants and other processes and review reports. In essence they do three audits, state compliance, and single audits to examine federal program compliance for internal controls. They do not give their opinion. Lastly, they review all financial
statements for state and federal processes of money coming in and going out. Within the programs they examine two areas, risk assessment and the dollars spent. Some programs are tested every three years. This year Special Education and the Special Education Jobs Fund were under review, i.e. disbursements, payroll, cash and balances and revenue. An unqualified statement is the best a district can obtain and this was achieved by the Oracle School District. The statement is intended to discuss and analyze the audit in a readable format. Last year two findings were identified and the district has corrected them: compensation leave and
the USFR required by the state to keep tabs on attendance. On a final note the lead auditor mentioned that on average 15 comments (findings) were identified in many school district audit reports, the auditors applauded the district’s compliance record and offered “kudos” to the administration and staff. One of the highlights of the board meeting was the presentation of three students, Nathanial Benavidez, Robert Allison, and Julia Tellez. Julia is a seventh grade student and a product of Mountain Vista’s accelerated program. Julia has excelled in the countywide spelling bee placing second and third the past two

years. Dennis Blauser, Mountain Vista Principal, introduced them along with their parents. Other important discussion items were discussions on the future of the Oracle Ridge Learning Center and whether the program could be funded in the future, approval of the School District’s Strategic Plan and a commitment to review the District Policy Manual, and to deal with previous misperceptions voiced by
individuals regarding the school district audit and moving forward to build support for the override that provides funding for essentials that were unfunded by the state previous to the override. Passing the override will maintain important funding to continue delivery of the curriculum and putting students first on the agenda of education. The board plans to provide a description of specific uses of the override monies.
A large percentage of the school districts in our state presently seek overrides to pay salaries and other things critical to educating our children. The community will be hearing more about the override and possible budgetary constraints as the board members roll up their sleeves and buckle down to problem solving. /s/ Alicia S.

Deputy Foster observed a gray pickup pull into the parking lot and alongside a parked pickup. The overhead lights of both trucks turned on and there was movement inside the two trucks. The deputy approached the two vehicles and overheard one man yell to the other, “Get down someone is coming.” A male juvenile, 17, Oracle, was found inside the parked pickup and Deputy Foster observed the ignition had been punched. The juvenile was wearing gloves and had a screwdriver near his side. The second suspect, Vincent Chavez, 36, was still in the truck which they had

Upon arresting the two men, deputies discovered a small amount of methamphetamine in the pocket of the juvenile. During questioning, Chavez told deputies that he was a drug dealer but he was not a car thief and thought he was taking the juvenile, his neighbor, to pick up a family member’s truck. Both suspects had outstanding warrants from Pima County and were arrested for those warrants. In addition, Chavez faces charges of theft of means of transportation and burglary. The juvenile was arrested for burglary, possession of burglary tools, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug

unincorporated part of Kearny. The resident wanted to work from home and found a job posted on CareerBuilder. com for a “parcel forwarding contractor.” After applying for the job, the resident received a lengthy job description with details about compensation. Packages started arriving for the resident to forward, but no compensation was actually given to the resident. Concerned about the situation and before one package had been forwarded, the resident contacted Kearny Police and Pinal County Sheriff’s Office. PCSO’s Criminal Investigation Bureau began looking into the situation and confirmed that the packages contained stolen property. PCSO is continuing to investigate this case. Residents are encouraged to vet opportunities carefully. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Exercise caution.

Lt. Villar says yellow brick road leads to San Manuel By John Hernandez Lieutenant Tamatha “Tami” Villar is back in San Manuel with the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office. She is the Supervisor for Region B, the largest geographical area of Pinal County. Her officers cover an area that extends past Kearny and down to SaddleBrooke, a geographically and economically diverse region. Tami has been in law enforcement nearly 16 years. She grew up in Marana, Arizona and lived there all her life until joining the City of Eloy Police Department, where she worked for three years. She was then hired on with the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department, starting out as a patrol officer. As a patrolman, she was assigned to San Manuel as the School Resource Officer where she taught the DARE program. After leaving San Manuel, she was a detective working in the sex crimes division and later in homicide. Tami was promoted to Sergeant and in 2004 returned to San Manuel. In 2007, she returned to Florence where she worked as the Public Information Officer for 18 months. She then worked in Community Relations where she was involved with programs such as Neighborhood Watch and the Explorers. In 2012 she was selected to attend the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia along with fellow officer Lieutenant Blake King. She became the first female from Pinal County to attend. Less than one percent of law enforcement executives are selected to participate in the academy. To attend the academy, an officer must first be nominated by their department. The FBI National Academy then selects the candidates from the nominees. The academy is one of the premier training centers for law enforcement in
the world. “I was honored that I was selected” said Villar. Out of the 260 candidates at the academy, thirty were women. It was the largest female delegation in the history of the FBI National Academy which began their first sessions in 1935. Since then, 45,000 men have completed the academy while only 1,700 women have done so. “It was very cost effective training” she said. The FBI paid for the meals, air fare and the ten weeks of training. Tami said it was an amazing experience. “The academy provided us with fantastic training in problem solving, law and legal, advanced leadership skills, technology, and networking,” she said. The trainees attended class five days a week and did physical training three days a week. Villar said the hardest part being away from her family. The biggest challenge at the academy was living in a small dorm room with four women and only one bathroom. One of the highlights of her stay at the academy was during National Police Week when they were given the opportunity to plan a whole day of activities and fun for 126 children of fallen officers. It was a way of honoring those officers that had lost their lives in the line of duty.
The trainees got to travel to New York where they were able to visit Ground Zero and take a boat tour which included a stop by the Statue of Liberty. They also got to see the New York City Police computerized command center in action. Villar was able to meet the FBI Director Robert Mueller. The final test of the fitness challenge at the FBI National Academy is known as the “Yellow Brick Road.” This challenge is optional and involves a 6.1 mile long grueling run through a hilly woody trail and obstacle course that was designed and built by the United States Marine Corps. It is called the Yellow Brick Road because the Marines started using yellow colored bricks to mark sections of the trail. They later embraced the Wizard of Oz theme to name different sections of the trail such as “Not in Kansas Anymore,” the “Munchkin Trot,” and “Journey to Oz.” Along the Yellow Brick Road, the participants must climb over walls, run through creeks and mud, use ropes to scale rock walls, crawl under barbed wire and more. At the end of the obstacle course is a two-mile uphill run. Those participants that completed the Yellow Brick Road physical fitness challenge are
given a yellow brick. Villar proudly displays it in her office. In Sept. 2012, she was assigned to patrol and chose San Manuel. She said she enjoyed the relationships she built in the community when she worked there previously. “It has a rural feel and is still warm and welcoming,” she said. “I like the people. There is a lot of good we can do in the community.” While working for Pinal County, she met her husband who works as a traffic officer in the Gila River Indian Community. They now have two children and reside in Red Rock. Villar said she sees property crimes/theft and domestic violence as the major
crime problems in the TriCommunity. The property crimes her officers deal with in the area are probably drug related. “Drugs are the root of the problem” she said. “We will be working harder to address drug sales. They have a negative impact in every community.” Villar said that the poor socio-economic times and the stress of not having jobs leads to drug and alcohol problems. The substance abuse problems lead to theft and impact domestic violence. As for domestic violence, she thinks the issue is mishandled nationwide. “There needs to be a definite focus that needs to be placed on mental health and domestic

Pushing the Limits: Bird walk in the bosque By John Hernandez A group of nature lovers met one early Saturday afternoon at the Mammoth Public Library for a walk through the mesquite bosque along the San Pedro River. The Bird Walk in the Bosque was part of the Pushing the Limits program sponsored by the Mammoth Library. The walk was guided by Celeste Andresen of the Nature Conservancy. Celeste led the group on trails that have been cut through the thick groves of mesquite. She listened for the calls of birds to identify them and hopefully point them out to the group. Celeste talked about the bosque and answered questions about some of the plants that grow in the area and animals that use
The Picket Fence Antique Resale Shop 1285 W. American Ave. Oracle, AZ Wed-Sat 11:30-4:30
the bosque as their habitat. A bosque is a type of forest that grows along a corridor of a river or wetland that projects into an area that is bare or sparsely treed such as a desert. Bosque is Spanish for woodlands. The mesquite bosque near Mammoth is located on the 7B Ranch. It is part of 3,050 acres along the San Pedro River. It is possibly the largest and oldest mesquite bosque in Arizona. It is part of the proposed Resolution Copper Project land exchange. It is considered a part of the Lower San Pedro global important
bird area. Many species of birds and other wildlife are found in the area. Many migratory birds including rare species visit the bosque annually. It was a nice warm day for the bird walk. Although the group did not spot many birds it was an enjoyable and educational time. The warm weather also brought out a surprise visitor in the form of a small rattlesnake that was sunning itself on the trail. This probably focused are attention more on the ground than the trees where the birds were during the rest of the walk.

Fire drill in Oracle draws many firefighters ByJohn Hernandez The town of Oracle was the site of an interagency Wildland training exercise on Tuesday, Mar. 26. The drill was hosted by the U.S. Forest Service, Arizona State Forestry Division, and several local fire agencies from Pima and Pinal Counties. These agencies included the Oracle Fire Department, Casa Grande Fire Department, Eloy Fire District, Golder Ranch Fire District, and Northwest Fire district. The training is designed to provide seasonal wildland firefighters and personnel assigned to the fire line, the chance to review safety standards and techniques used during state and national deployments. It gives the agencies the opportunity to meet each other and work together in a simulated emergency incident. The training exercise was coordinated in the same way that an actual emergency incident is organized using the Incident Command System structure and incorporating the wildland fire teams for assignments. The incident commander for the drill was Captain Andy Miller of the Casa Grande Fire Department. The training exercise lasted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Between 150 and 200 firefighters from Southern Arizona participated in the drills in preparation for the upcoming wildfire season. Firefighters from as far away as Rio Rico, Goodyear, Benson and Maricopa participated in the drills. The drill divided the attendees into four main Strike Teams/Task Forces. Each team/force was rotated through four Drill, Page 15

stolen base. “We are hitting the ball well,” said Head Coach Deanne Brewer. “The areas we struggle are defensively - we are not as aggressive as I would like to see on the fly balls, especially on the bloopers, and our pitchers need to limit the walks. But I see big differences. We are definitely coming around. I expect a lot from these girls. I know they can be state competitors.” The Lady Miners then took part in the Hayden Invitational Tournament at Hayden High School on March 29th and faced the Willcox Cowgirls for the second time in four days with the Lady Miners roping the Cowgirls 11 – 1 for the win.

But I knew at the end of the game, we would face the Bulldogs in the Championship.”
On Mar. 30, the Lady Miners faced off against the Safford Lady Bulldogs in the third game of the tournament and dropped Safford 15 - 3.

Coach Brewer said, “Hayden is a big hitting team. This is the fourth time we have seen them this season. We made the choice to start Encinas who the Lobos had only seen once in our scrimmage. Hayden had nine hits, but they were scattered. Defensively, we had one error. Nicole hit her spots, allowing defense to do their job. This was a sweet revenge after being ten run-ruled in the last game we played against them. We had less hits, but three of them were homeruns...Cuellar and Medina hit solos and Zuniga hit one with Vindiola on base by a walk. Hayden committed two costly errors in the sixth inning - the only two they had in the game. Miners left only one runner on in the game, it was a good game.” With the close win over the Lady Lobos, the Lady Miners advanced to the Championship game against the Lady BullLady Miners, Page 13

Supervisors rejects permit for Dudleyville medical marijuana dispensary By Chase Kamp Copper Area News The Pinal County Board of Supervisors unanimously rejected a special use permit application for a medical marijuana dispensary on Highway 77 near Dudleyville, citing concerns about traffic, potential for increased crime in the area and a lack of sufficient public comment on the facility. The application was submitted by Paul Shaub and property landowner Glenn Wilt Jr., a professor at Arizona State University. The proposed site is on Highway 77 south of Valentine Road within a state-sanctioned community health analysis area (CHAA). Each CHAA is allowed one medical marijuana dispensary.
The Supervisors argued the application did not meet a number of required factors for consideration. Supervisor Pete Rios took greatest issue with the thoroughness of Wilt’s team to notify surrounding residents of a public hearing. Rios argued the applicants merely posted a notice on the former Palmer Steakhouse building and held the meeting on the same night as nearby Ray High School’s homecoming football game. “The applicant was lax with public notice,” Rios said, “especially in the first go-round in notifying people.” David Dow, Wilt’s lawyer, said required notifications were sent to 16 nearby landowners and that
attendance was sparse at the public hearing. Rios asked about the potential for theft in the wooden building that would house the dispensary, as well as the amount of cash the operation would have to handle due to credit card companies being wary of processing medical marijuana transactions. Dow stood by the application’s submitted security plan, which he said was overseen by a former Apache Junction police lieutenant, and said the marijuana would have been stored in a safe after nightly closing. He also said some credit card companies will process the transactions, albeit at a higher fee, and that the facility would make daily cash deposits.
Public Notice Pinal County Public Hearing Regarding Use of CDBG Funds Pinal County is expected to receive approximately $104,000 in FY13 federal CDBG funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). CDBG funds must be used to benefit low-income persons and areas, alleviate slum and blight or address urgent need. Based on citizen input as well as local and state planning objectives potential projects may be selected to be forwarded to the State of Arizona with a request for funding. A public hearing will be held at the regular Pinal County Board of Supervisors meeting at the Pinal County Administrative Complex, Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, 135 N. Pinal Street, Florence, AZ, on April 24, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. to discuss the potential project. Following the hearing, it is expected that the Board of Supervisors will select the following project at the meeting and adopt applicable resolutions. The potential CDBG project is to provide homeownership rehabilitation to qualified households in Pinal County. To review the project proposals, file grievances or learn more about the CDBG program contact the following: Angel Quintanar Pinal County Housing Address: 970 N. Eleven Mile Corner Rd. Casa Grande, AZ 85194 Phone: 520-866-7218 Fax: 520-866-7235
The facility would not store large amounts of medicinal product, Dow said, unlike other dispensaries that are authorized to grow marijuana on site. “This isn’t a bunch of wildeyed radicals,” Dow said of the applicants. “They’re stable, sound businessmen who are experienced and will do a good job with this facility.” He explained the proposed Dudleyville site was chosen because it met the local criteria for distance from schools, churches and other entities. Pinal County law prohibits dispensaries within 1500 feet of churches, schools or libraries, which triples the distance from such facilities required by
people,” Rios said. “If it isn’t okay to smoke marijuana, then why is it okay to sell it by the [nearby] Minute Mart [gas station]?” Chairman Steve Miller argued that moral objections to marijuana were not sufficient to deny the application, saying the applicants agreed to meet the 18 stipulations made by the county planning and zoning commission. However, he too expressed concern about the notification to the public. “They posted it legally, but did they really reach out in a way most effective?” he said. After the down vote, Dow said he and Wilt were yet to decide if they will legally challenge the Board’s decision.

the state Department of Health Services. In 2010, Arizona voters approved Prop 203 which established the medical marijuana program. Rios said he supported Prop 203. “Cancer victims can benefit from the pain relief of medicinal use,” he said. However, he also contested the application due to traffic accident concerns expressed to him by the Dudleyville Fire Department. Several Supervisors noted they had received many notes of opposition from constituents, and that they had received next to no letters of support for the proposal. “I’m concerned about the message that it sends to young

Hoppy Easter! Mammoth & Oracle host egg hunts
The San Pedro Valley Lions Club held an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday for kids 10 years of age and under. Hundreds of eggs were set out for the kids. The plastic eggs contained candy and prizes. One egg had a $50 bill in it. Word has it that the first egg was taken by a gopher who came out of his hole, grabbed the egg and carried it back into the hole. Hope it had a Happy Easter. A much less eventful, but still fun time for kids was held at the Oracle Community Church. The annual event drew children to the church grounds to look for goodies left by the Easter Bunny and his helpers. Go online to http://bit.ly/12d6dse to see more photos from the event in Mammoth.
