Plane crashes on Copper Creek Road; no injuries reported

A small plane rests on its top after it flips on landing. (Parrish Traweek photo) Sight seers seeking the ghostly remains of Copper Tree Town last week nearly became ghosts themselves after the plane they were in flipped when they tried to land on a back country road. According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, pilot Thomas John Trotter reported that when he and his passenger, Christopher Gardett, tried to land on Copper Creek Road the wing caught a bush on the side of the road which caused the plane to flip onto its roof. Neither Trotter or Gardett

were injured. Parrish Traweek, Assistant Manager at the Ray Blair Airport in San Manuel and local pilot/flying instructor, said the airplane was a Maule and was designed for backcountry landing such as they do in Alaska.. Traweek said that the plane was not based out of San Manuel. PCSO secured the accident scene so that it could be turned over to the National Traffic Safety Board which investigates plane crashes.

Gift to a Graduate: First Helen Coxon Memorial Scholarship offered to Enriquez

By Karen Coxon Woodford Helen Coxon, one of the “pioneers” of San Manuel, was lovingly remembered on Sunday at the San Manuel High School Baccalaureate and Honors Ceremony when her husband of 70 years presented the first Helen Coxon Memorial Scholarship. Vin Coxon, at 95 years of age and a former Mammoth-San Manuel school board member, shared highlights of Helen’s life and told the audience why the scholarship was created. Mr. Coxon explained that he and Helen were early residents of San Manuel, moving here in 1955 and raising four children (Karen, Gary, Jim and Judi) all of whom were graduates of San Manuel High School. Additionally, all the Coxon children went on to graduate from the University of Arizona as Helen was passionate about the value of education

and strongly encouraged her children to take advantage of the college opportunity. The Coxon family lived at 931 Sixth Avenue for 50 years. Helen Coxon was an Arizona native and a graduate of the U of A. While at the University, she lettered in two sports, softball and field hockey. Additionally, she was a Business major, which was unusual for women at the time. Helen graduated, with honors, from the U of A in 1941 and started her married life with Vin immediately afterwards in the Globe/Miami area. Upon her death on Sept. 7, 2010, the Coxon family committed to develop a college scholarship for a deserving San Manuel High School graduate through the Mammoth-San Manuel Education Foundation. Helen loved her life in San Manuel and believed in the value of an extended education.

A San Manuel High School scholarship in her honor seemed like a fitting memorial. At Helen’s death, many generous donations were received that helped to start the scholarship. The scholarship is for $5,000 to be paid out over two years. Future Helen Coxon

The late Helen Coxon

Memorial Scholarships will be presented in 2012 and for an undetermined amount of years following. Mr. Coxon told the audience that the entire family is thrilled to see Priscilla Enriquez receive the first Helen Coxon Memorial Scholarship. Priscilla has been an outstanding student at San Manuel High School and is headed to the University of Arizona. While managing to acquire a 4.33 grade point average, Priscilla was also active in extra-curricular activities including running cross country, track and cheerleading. Additionally, while in high school, she volunteered as a tutor for math students. Priscilla is the 2011 Valedictorian for San Manuel High School.

Letter to the Editor: Criteria offered for possible Verizon cell tower site Editor, San Manuel Miner: An update for the Oracle community regarding current progress in the public search for an alternate site for the proposed Verizon Wireless cell tower: As of Monday afternoon, May 23, a total of eight landowners have contacted us to request consideration for this installation on their property. For those landowners in the town of Oracle who might wish to have a parcel included in this search process, and who were not able to attend the May 12 Town Hall meeting, here is a synopsis of the criteria presented by Verizon Wireless that evening for such an installation. The approximate best location for such a site is in the central core of Oracle. This core roughly forms an irregular rectangle on an east-west axis, straddling American Avenue lengthwise. One end of the core is in the vicinity of the current Waste Transfer Station access road east of town. The opposite end of this core is about where the easternmost dollar store is

located, east of the Oracle Fire Department Drake Station. Depending upon the viability of any proposed site for improved cell phone signals, the exact boundaries of this core area have some flexibility. The site must fit within the local zoning codes. If the footprint of the site is at a lower elevation, the height of the tower may have to be raised. Sites that have potential environmental issues will not be considered. Access to the site must be 24/7, and no landlocked sites without this access can be considered. Utilities (telephone and 200 amp electrical service) are required. The site landowner must be willing to enter into a long-term lease. Typical lease rates for a rural area are in the $700 - $800 per month range. All sites that are offered up will be inspected onsite by Pinnacle Consulting, Inc. staff - the agent for Verizon Wireless - to ensure all site selection criteria is met. In addition, wireless communication engineers from Verizon Wireless will

National holiday brings Donnie Payne retires from reminder to citizens of San Manuel High School American Flag etiquette Do you fly your American Flag on Memorial Day? Did you know that you should fly it at half staff until noon? The following information was taken from the Veterans of Foreign Wars website (www.vfw.org) on how flags should be treated. The federal flag code says the universal custom is to display the U.S. flag from sunrise to sunset on buildings and stationary flagstaffs in the open, but when a patriotic effect is desired the flag may be displayed 24-hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. Also, the U.S. flag should not be displayed when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is displayed. DISPLAYING THE FLAG: On Same Staff U.S. flag at peak, above any other flag. Grouped

U.S. flag goes to its own right. Flags of other nations are flown at same height. Marching U.S. flag to marchers right (observer’s left). On Speaker’s Platform When displayed with a speaker’s platform, it must be above and behind the speaker. If mounted on a staff it is on the speaker’s right. Decoration Never use the flag for decoration. Use bunting with the blue on top, then white, then red. Salute All persons present in uniform should render the military salute. Members of the armed forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute. All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the

heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Over a Street Union (stars) face north or east depending on the direction of the street. Half Staff On special days, the flag may be flown at half-staff. On Memorial Day it is flown at half-staff until noon and then raised. Do not let the flag touch the ground. Do not fly flag upside down unless there is an emergency. Do not carry the flag flat, or carry things in it. Do not use the flag as clothing. Do not store the flag where it can get dirty. Do not use it as a cover. Do not fasten it or tie it back. Always allow it to fall free. Do not draw on, or otherwise mark the flag.

Mammoth Police Report The Mammoth Police Report is submitted by the department. According to state law, there are two methods by which police may arrest suspected offenders. The suspect may be physically taken into the department and booked into jail, or the arresting officer may write a citation and release the suspect to appear in court later.

Though confused a moment before, Donnie Payne accepted some well-deserved hugs at the San Manuel Country Club where his friends and family surprised him with a retirement party. He thought he was attending an anniversary party for Jodi and Paul Monfred. Donnie is stepping down as the San Manuel High School varsity baseball coach after a remarkable 40 year career. Donnie helped establish and continued the winning tradition for the baseball program as a player and a coach. He is in the Arizona Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame. Donnie was a mentor, father figure, teacher and friend to many young men that went through his program. Whoever replaces him will have some big shoes to fill. Good luck Donnie and enjoy your retirement! (John Hernandez photo)

Don has been a Deputy, Corporal, Sergeant and a Lieutenant in his career. He retired as a Sergeant.

“I did not like sitting behind a desk,” he said. “I liked to be on the road.” Don moved to San Manuel in the early 1990s, following his parents from Buffalo, New York. He applied to the Sheriff’s Department and was accepted. Don said he always wanted to be a police officer. “I enjoy helping people,” he said. Don has received numerous

accolades over the years. In 1992 he received a medal for valor after rescuing a woman and her child from the San Pedro River when their vehicle was caught in flood waters. He was named Pinal County Officer of the Year in 2005 and has been named the Elks Officer of the Year three times. Don served under five different sheriffs: Frank Reyes, Bill Eck, Roger Vanderpool, Chris Vasquez, and Paul Babeu. When asked what advice he would give a new officer coming into the department, Don replied, “Enjoy it while you can. They don’t know how lucky they

have it”. The San Manuel Elks Club was the site of Don’s retirement party. Many of his friends and colleagues were there to say goodbye. Don said that the hardest part of working for the Sheriff’s office was retiring. “It is the best department in the world,” he said. “The best part is the guys and girls I worked with. I will miss the people, they are like my family.” Don and his family will be returning to Buffalo, New York. He doesn’t know what he will do but he said it will involve working with and helping people.

ADOT offers Memorial Day weekend and summer travel driving tips PHOENIX – As many Arizonans look ahead to Memorial Day weekend and the start of the summer travel season, the Arizona Department of Transportation is urging drivers to plan ahead and follow important safety tips. As summer temperatures soar each year, drivers should make sure they’ve had their vehicle’s condition checked before they head out on a trip. Weather conditions can change and monsoon storms can arrive suddenly, creating dust-filled winds and cutting visibility along the highway up ahead. Allowing extra travel time is a good idea, too. Unscheduled closures due to crashes or other incidents, including wildfires, can affect highway travel. Existing work zones for highway improvement projects, even when work is not taking place over holiday weekends, can add time spent on the road. A couple of existing highway work zones to be aware of – especially at the start and end

of the Memorial Day weekend – are located along Interstate 10 at the Hassayampa River bridges 40 miles west of downtown Phoenix and at the Interstate 17 bridges at Munds Park 20 miles south of Flagstaff. The highways are narrowed to one lane in each direction at those locations. ADOT reminds motorists to drive with caution and offers the following summer driving tips: • Check your vehicle (Examples: check tire condition and pressure, oil and other fluid levels and inspect belts and hoses) • Expect the unexpected when out on the road – pay attention. And buckle up • Get plenty of rest before traveling and take regular rest

breaks • Be patient and alert to changing road conditions • Plan your travel route and check alternate routes. Have a map • If your vehicle breaks down or you need to change a flat tire, pull completely off the roadway. Please be cautious in areas with taller grass or brush – hot vehicle components can spark a fire. • Don’t drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs (even prescription drugs can limit your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle) • Cell phones or satellite devices help in an emergency – make sure they are fully charged • Obey the posted speed limit, check for changing speed limit

Tags and QR readers giving CAC an electronic leg up in recruiting students By Guy Harrison Media and Marketing Specialist PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. – While tag and QR (quick response) readers may appear to be the latest gadgetry to hit the telecommunications world, more organizations and business are using this technology to better reach their customers. Count Central Arizona College, and in particular, its office of student recruitment, among the many organizations to ride this new wave of student interaction This was just part of an updated annual recruitment plan unveiled at the Pinal County Community College District Governing Board Meeting held on Tuesday, May 17, at CAC’s Signal Peak Campus. The plan includes four goals, the fourth of which was to develop a more efficient way of receiving prospective student data from traditional age students (18-22). Tag and QR readers allow their users to scan pixilated, nondescript images with the cameras on their Smartphones, instantly bringing the user to a specific webpage – in this case a site where students can request more information from the college. “Our students don’t want e-mails anymore,” Luis Sanchez, CAC’s assistant director of recruitment, stated. “They would rather get information on their phones.” See Recruiting, Page 12

Tri-Community Annual Three years now and counting: San Manuel graduates walk away with more than $1 million in scholarships, grants By Jennifer R. Carnes Seniors at San Manuel High School did it again! The class of 2011 came away with another large slice of post-high school academic funding. The group as a whole is leaving high school with approximately $1.4 million and counting in scholarships and grants. This year, military contracts added nearly $750,000 to the grand total. David Hudson and Elfie Vigil will be leaving shortly after graduation for the U.S. Marine Corps. Their contracts including the G.I. Bill for education total $150,000 each. Caleb Smith and Robbie Barney will also be leaving soon for Basic Training in the United State Army. Their contracts, too, total $150,000 each. Andres Peres has signed on with the U.S. Navy for a career in aviation weapons. His contract, too, totals $150,000. But graduates signing on with the military were not the only ones to bring home impressive totals. The class’s top students also garnered their fair share of scholarships.

Valedictorian Priscilla Enriquez was awarded University of Arizona and Arizona State University scholarships, totaling $27,000 and $30,000 respectively. She also was awarded Central Arizona College Academic Scholarship ($5,040), CAC Promise for the Future Scholarship ($5,040), SaddleBrooke Community Outreach Scholarship ($5,000), SaddleBrooke Rotary Scholarship ($4,000), the Worth and Dot Howard Foundation Scholarship ($1,000), Tri-Community Knights of Columbus Scholarship ($750) and the Helen Coxon Memorial Scholarship ($5,000). Salutatorian Brittney Smith also earned quite a few scholarships to help her in her future education endeavors. She was awarded scholarships from all three state universities: University of Arizona ($25,000), Arizona State University ($36,000) and Northern Arizona University ($24,000). She was awarded scholarships from CAC, both Academic and Promise for the Future ($5,040 each), SaddleBrooke Community

San Manuel Miner, San Manuel, Arizona

‘Community Day’ to benefit the NTAF Southwest Lung Transplant Fund in honor of David Hernandez Tucson, AZ – A fun, familyfriendly event will take place to raise funds in honor of David Hernandez, who is in need of a double lung transplant. “Community Day for David” is happening Saturday, May 28, 2011 from 12 noon to 8 pm at Anselmo Valencia Amphitheater (AVA) at Casino del Sol, 5655 W. Valencia Road, in Tucson, Arizona. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 kids six to twelve, and free for kids five and under for the event which includes live bands, vendors, speakers, and a car show. Tickets may be purchased at the door on the day of the event or Michas Restaurant 2908 S. 4th Avenue, and at Las Cazuelitas on Grant Rd. and I-10 in Tucson AZ. Transplants are expensive and many costs associated with the procedure are not covered by David’s healthcare insurance. David Hernandez needs

community support and the family day fundraiser is a perfect way to spend time with family and friends while helping David raise funds for expenses related to the transplant. A non-smoker, David began experiencing difficulty breathing about three years ago and was diagnosed with lung disease which produces progressive scarring of the lungs. David has worked most of his adult life as a heavy equipment operator in construction sites throughout Arizona. A gifted musician, David learned to play guitar as a young boy. At the age of 14, he had his first paying gig with three songs and a band called the “Cassanovas.” Later, David played in wellknown bands such as Ritmo Suave and helped form the Z Street Band. He spent a lot of time playing for free to help out others in their time of need. David’s voice and

participation in music have greatly diminished. The great hearts of community members can help David’s quality of life as he battles not to sing, but to breathe. He was born and raised in San Manuel. Growing up, he played on the Little League baseball team and in high school he played baseball and football. As a sophomore at San Manuel High School, he became a weight-lifter and could lift 425 pounds. His nickname in high school was the “Hulk.” No one is sure exactly how he came by the nickname: some say it was because of the weightlifting; others say it was because he dressed up as the famous character one year for Halloween. There are many stories told by his friends that show just how easygoing and friendly David is, always laughing and joking. He also has a great passion for gardening which shows in his beautiful backyard, full of plants,

flowers and trees. David has been married to Karen for 20 years and has five children. His children are David Jr., Angel, Ashley, Katie, Michael and Tony. David had four grandchildren. Their names are Alyssa, Isabella, Alisia and Tony. David wants to be active in all of their lives. Please help David by having fun on Community Day for David Hernandez at the AVA, Casino del Sol, May 28, 2011. Please call Karen Kane (520) 3694352 or Hector Youtsey at (520) 820-6277 for more information about the event or donating to the fund. You can also e-mail hyoutsey@cox.net for information. Visit the NTAF website for David at azdavesfundraiser.org. David’s family and friends have joined with the National Transplant Assistance Fund to raise the money needed. The National Transplant Assistance

Fund (NTAF) is a national, nonprofit 501 {c}3 organization dedicated to helping families raise funds for transplant-related uninsured medical expenses. NTAF provides fundraising guidance to patients and families in communities throughout the

Page 9

country and offers accountability for raised funds. Established in 1983 by medical professionals, NTAF has helped raise over $70 million for out-of-pocket expenses and assisting over 5000 patients in need of transplants or recovering from a catastrophic injury.

Library Lines: June News from the Mammoth Public Library By Diana Stirling It’s hard to believe the last week of school has arrived already! We’ve been busy planning programs to keep kids (and adults) occupied and entertained during the hot summer months. Here’s a glance at what we’ve got planned for the next few weeks. Saturdays in June are all booked up (so to speak) with book club meetings set for June 4 and June 18. The selection for June 4 is The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. This is reputed to be the very first mystery novel. Then on June 18 we’ll be discussing The Necklace by Cheryl Jarvis. This is the true story of 13 women who bought an expensive diamond necklace together, and of how sharing the necklace changed their lives and the lives of others. To join the club, just ask for the book club selection at the desk. On June 11, we’ll welcome back the delightful comic magician Jolly Roger. His show will elicit a smile and a gasp from kids and

adults alike. There’s plenty of room so bring all your friends. The program is FREE and starts at 11 a.m. No registration is necessary; just show up. We’ll be hosting a CAPP car seat class for parents of small children on Monday, June 14. Learn how to correctly install and use a car seat to keep those kids safe. The program begins at 6 p.m. Finally, on June 25 we’re going to have a geocaching treasure hunt. Now is your chance to learn about the geocaching craze, use a GPS device, and find hidden treasure. Participation is limited, so call to sign up. It’s bound to be hot so we’ll start at 9:30 a.m. For more information about any of these programs, contact us at 520-487-2026 or come by the library, 125 Clark St. (in the basement of Town Hall) in Mammoth. Mammoth Public Library will be closed Saturday, May 28 and Monday, May 30. Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend.

Recruiting

Continued from Page 4 It goes without saying that as a collegiate recruitment office it pays to keep up with the latest informationgathering trends. The use of tag and QR technology allows the recruitment office to meet the demands of its target demographic. In addition, the recruitment office has as one of its goals to assess and evaluate its current recruitment practices in order to develop higherquality and more effective recruitment practices. “We’ll be conducting surveys with local guidance counselors, our prospective students, and our own outreach staff to evaluate our performance,” Sanchez explained. By evaluating its current practices and developing streamlined ways of reaching target audiences, the office of recruitment hopes to increase its number of admitted students by five percent. The office’s annual plan also calls for an increase in its communication with prospective students, hoping for an increase in matriculation rate from prospective student to enrolled student. To achieve this, the office will, according to Sanchez, make individual visits to all of CAC’s feeder schools as well as maximize its use of e-mail, social networking, and text messaging. The goal is to increase the districtwide enrollment by 10 percent. The office of recruitment plans to create a more comprehensive online portal for prospective students. Specifically, the plan calls for the creation of a CAC prospective student webpage and tags or QR (quick response) readers that will allow students to enter their own data into our system for accuracy and faster response times. Sanchez envisions that this website will contain a virtual campus tour as well as electronic versions of all catalogs and brochures that will provide instant visuals of the college’s campuses and centers as well as access to prospective student materials. Through this webpage, Sanchez hopes that students will be able to schedule campus tours.

Seniors

Continued from Page 3 Participants will receive a working understanding of coverage options and related terminology that confronts seniors and the disabled as they meander through the Medicare system. This important class will explain and simplify senior health care insurance options.

Andy Lockridge teaches the course. He has been a licensed life and health insurance agent in Arizona for more than 14 years. Lockridge also teaches adult education classes in several community college settings in southern Maricopa County and throughout Pinal County on the topics of understanding Medicare and its advantage and supplement plans, as well as Part D prescription plans, long-term care, life insurance and annuities. Lockridge also has conducted workshops and seminars throughout the state for various groups, including churches, veterans, the State Association of Practicing Accountants and senior groups.

Mountain Vista science students shine at annual science fair

The Science Fair at Mountain Vista was a popular destination last Thursday May 19. Students, friends, and families took in the projects and the exclamation, “Oh! That’s interesting!” was repeatedly heard. (Lana Jones photo)

(Below) The 6 first place winners of Mountain Vista’s Science Fair drew a lot of attention. The winners from left to right were as follows: Third graders Maria Echeverria, Jaquelyn Santos, Samuel Reyes, Bryan Ornelas, and Domin Engelmeier with “Which bubble gum produces the biggest bubble?” Fourth graders Isabella Juvera and Celeste Maxwell with “Which sandwich would grow mold faster peanut butter and jelly or a ham sandwich?” Fifth grader Keefer Gagnon with “Is a person’s sitting height proportional to their standing height?” Sixth grader Nicholas Kaspzah with “Which way does the wind blow most frequently?” Seventh grader Paige Padilla with “How far away can you see colors?” and Eight grader Bo Shimmin with “Can you change the flavor of popcorn if you soak the kernels in a predetermined liquid before popping?” (Lana Jones photo)
