LETTER TO THE EDITOR Thanks for the show of support I thank all of our community leaders who appeared at the Board of Supervisor’s meeting held on May 28. With your leadership and through your dedication, you serve our communities well and work every single day to provide our youth and families with a promising future. I appreciate your appearing at the Board of Supervisors meeting to show support for RICO funds used by your organization and believe this helped educate the Board as to how these funds continue to assist in law enforcement efforts by curbing crime in Pinal. For those in attendance at the board meeting, presenters provided evidence of some of the beneficial impacts these RICO funds serve in our community and of the successful programs and organizations they lead with the assistance of this funding. Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Funding comes from the forfeiture of money and property by law enforcement after obtaining these assets used or gained through criminal activities. This funding is then allocated to law enforcement agencies for use as statutorily permitted. After taking office, I formalized the process by which groups and nonprofits apply for and receive RICO funding by creating a semi-annual review process. The review process ensures RICO moneys are targeted toward those organizations promoting substance abuse prevention and education, gang prevention, support for crime victims and other law enforcement purposes. I understand the budgetary constraints faced by the Board and know they work to keep the promises they made during their election campaigns. RICO funds, however, along with their permissions, come with certain limitations, such as RICO funds may not be used to replace cyclical costs, such as personnel wages. Further, they may only be used for one-time expenses such as personnel training and equipment, as long as that use does not backfill budget cuts. Enforcing the law requires a much larger job than just putting ‘bad guys’ in prison. It’s about working together as a community. My goal remains building a community based, vertical style, and team prosecuting office. A community-based, prosecuting office includes the ability to provide the funds to organizations that work to comfort and build up victims, rehabilitate drug abusers, and provide our children the resources to completely avoid drug use. The RICO funds supporting these community programs arise out of our State RICO funds. While there are fewer requirements on State RICO funds than exists on Federal RICO funds, this increased flexibility still does not permit supplanting, or replacing, our budget with the use of these funds. It does, however, provide us the ability to reinvest in our communities to build them stronger while putting a financial strain on the criminals. Specifically, we reinvested these funds to support programs that offered child care programs, rehabilitation centers, high school graduation lock-ins, little league teams and other youth-involvement programs, DUI reenactments for students, substance abuse coalitions, organizations handling pet-therapy for abused children,

numerous domestic violence organizations, various law enforcement agencies, and many other organizations that specifically work toward a law enforcement and substance abuse prevention end. Additionally, the Pinal County Attorney’s Family Advocacy Center (San Tan Valley) should be opening within the next several months to serve victims of domestic violence, child and sexual abuse, and elder abuse. This Center, soon to arrive in or near the area that Supervisor Chase was elected to represent, is only possible

with the support of our communities and the use of State RICO funding. It is no secret that Supervisor Chase participated in the approval processes for RICO funds during her tenure with Sheriff Paul at the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and I continue my open invitation to her and the other supervisors to stand with me in providing RICO funds to our community partners. There should be no reason for the community to believe that Supervisor Chase, or other Continued on page 11

TUCSON, Ariz. – The Arizona Game and Fish Department recently concluded a two year investigation of four suspects involved in nine different poaching incidents in the Oracle, Mammoth, Globe and northern Pima County areas.    The charges included unlawful take, possession and transport of multiple deer as well as hunting license fraud, and resulted in $7,500 in criminal and civil fines, which includes a civil assessment of $4,500 for the loss of three deer, and two 10 year hunting license revocations.      Charged in the cases were Mario Barragan, Alfred Barragan, Pete Reynoso and Chelsea Hetrick. Charges against Reynoso and Hetrick were dropped in a plea deal.    Mario Barragan was involved in six different incidents, and was criminally fined $2,302 and civilly assessed $3,000 for the loss of two deer.  In addition, his hunting license was revoked for 10 years.    Alfred Barragan was involved in three different incidents, and was criminally fined $741 and civilly assessed $1,500 for loss of one deer.  In addition, his

them.”   Individuals with information about wildlife violations are urged to call Operation Game Thief at 1-800-3520700, 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week, anonymously if need be.  Information may also be provided on-line at

Oracle Ridge temporarily suspending Drill Program By John Hernandez San Manuel Miner Rumors of the Oracle Ridge Mine closing down have been heard in the community last week. It is not clear where or how the rumors started but it may have been due in part to recent cut backs at the mine. A press release dated April 13, 2014 announcing a corporate strategy update said, “Oracle Mining has

temporarily suspended the 2014 Drill Program and rationalized expenditures to manage remaining financial resources while evaluating Third Party Options and continuing to advance permitting.” The update also said, “We have not made a production decision with respect to Oracle Ridge. A decision to proceed with production will be based on the corporation completing a future Feasibility Study demonstrating economic and

Town of Mammoth making payroll cuts By John Hernandez San Manuel Miner At a special meeting held Thursday, June 5, 2014, the Mammoth Town Council was informed by Patsy Large that cuts would have to be made to wages and salaries in the amount of $100,000. Effective Monday all public works employees will begin working a 32 hour week


Continued from page 4 manner and Ortega had previously been convicted of Felony Aggravated Assault in 2001. County Attorney Beauchamp commended the Hayden Police Department, the Department of Public Safety, the Golder Ranch Fire District, the Kearny Police Department, and the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office for conducting the investigation that led to the successful apprehension and prosecution of Ortega. Mr. Beauchamp also thanked the Time Out domestic violence shelter for attending Ortega’s sentencing in support of the victims.

and all department heads will take a 5 percent pay cut. A hiring freeze is also in effect. Department expenditures are being cut. Patsy Large will no longer be using a Town of Mammoth vehicle to commute from her home in Tucson and Public Works Director David Garcia will not take a town vehicle home. All overtime for the Mammoth Police Department will be cut. The town is working on cutting expenditures and is limiting purchasing in preparation for the 20142015 fiscal year. They will be doing more budget work sessions to come up with more ideas to save money. Patsy said she expects the

cuts to be temporary. The reason given for the cuts was that state revenues have dropped. Other factors could include the HURF funds which were inappropriately borrowed and according to Mammoth’s June 30, 2011 financial statement audit the balance of those funds had grown to $646,795. It could be more but no financial statement audit has been completed since then. On June 30, 2014, the town will be three years without a financial statement audit. Per Arizona Revised Statute 9-481: Audits shall be made at least once for every two fiscal years for all incorporated towns.

Board members, are not compassionate or that they don’t want what’s best for our community. I’m proud of where these State RICO funds went and I will continue to reinvest ‘bad guys’ money for good purposes in the exact same way, except with the caveat that if we can afford it, I will provide more to each group! While there is a use limit of only 15% for Federal RICO funds allowed for community organizations, these are State RICO funds and there is no mandated percentage requirement, rather merely suggested guidelines. As for my office, as long as we have State RICO funds, we will continue to provide them as generously as possible. To all of those organizations willing to assist the Pinal County Attorney’s Office with crime prevention, I, again, thank you for your continued service. And to those of you, who meet the eligibility requirements and wish to apply for RICO funds, I ask you to submit your requests to my office before our next deadline, which is November 15th. Thank you again for your leadership in our communities, /s/ Lando Voyles Pinal County Attorney

San Manuel Library hosts former NASA consultant, astronomer

Galaxies, planets and stars came to the San Manuel Library on May 27. Kevin Manning, astronomer and former consultant to NASA, presented ‘Look Up to the Stars,’ an educational and entertaining program for all ages. About 40 people in attendance learned about different galaxies, the sizes of planets and the sun’s special characteristics through colorful photos and animations. The lights were dimmed and participants were taken through an informational journey throughout the universe. After the free event, those in attendance had the opportunity to look at a sunspot on the surface of the sun through a custom telescope. Brittney Smith | San Manuel Library
