OBITUARIES Jose ‘Lupe’ Guadalupe Esparza Jose “Lupe” Guadalupe Esparza, 81, of Phoenix passed away on Saturday, May 31, 2014. Lupe was born in Jalisco, Mexico. He came to Arizona with his father in 1953 and began working for Kennecott Mining Company. Although he devoted over 43 years of service to the mine, it was his love and passion for Mariachi music that he was most known for. Soon after arriving to Arizona, Lupe formed the first Mariachi group in Arizona, Mariachi Alma Jaliscience; later he formed his second group, Mariachi Colonial de Lupe

Esparza. Lupe provided the Valley (as well as the Superior and Copper Basin areas) with authentic, professional Mariachi music for over 50 years and was recognized by the City of Phoenix with a proclamation stating Sept. 25 as “Lupe Esparza Day”. He was also recognized by the Arizona Musician’s Union with their Lifetime Achievement Award. He is preceded in death by his parents, Pedro and Maria, and his wife, Estella of Ajo, Ariz. He is survived by his brother, Arturo; his sister, Aurora; his sons, Samuel (Renee) and Marcus (Andrea); and grandson, Alex. Services were held at Green Acres Mortuary in Scottsdale on Monday, June 9. A Mariachi procession guided Lupe to his interment.

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 com-

munity 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.

Creating futures...


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 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

Mayor Valenzuela and other elected officials visit Resolution Copper Mine By Nina Crowder Superior Sun It was a special day for Mayor Jayme Valenzuela, Councilmember John Tameron, members of Senator John McCain’s office and Senator Jeff Flake’s office as they met at the Resolution Copper Mine site and began watching safety videos. Next they dressed out for the adventure down the cylinder tube that would take them 6,665 feet below the earth’s surface, giving them the opportunity to see how the work is progressing. The depth of the shaft will reach its full depth of 6,943 feet by the end of 2014. All the representatives that attended the tour found it very interesting. These visitors all have a genuine interest in the production of the mine and the reflection it will have on the Town of Superior. Once the group entered the cylinder tube the ride is 15 minutes one way and travels 500 feet a minute. After the return to the top the group was able to see the operating room where the hoist control systems work. During the visitation, Dave Richins of Resolution Copper shared the story of the overlook area that was built for the visit of Prince William around 2004 and the process of block cave mining. The block cave mining is a mass mining method that allows for the bulk mining of large, relative lower grade ore bodies. In general terms, block cave mining is characterized by caving and extracting a massive volume of rock. This translates into the formation of a surface depression depending on the characteristics of the mining, the rock mass, and the topography of the ground surface. Block caving has been applied to

Mayor Jayme Valenzuela, Councilman John Tameron, John Godec Resolution Copper Community Outreach Group and Councilman Gilbert Aguilar enjoyed lunch together after the tour of the mine. Nina Crowder | Sun large scale extractions of various metals and minerals. The underground tunnel where overlying rock is broken by gravity more or less flows to the draw point to be gathered and taken away for processing. After the ore has been extracted from the mine, the copper production process takes place in various stages. Once the ore is extracted Resolution Copper will undergo primary crushing underground. The crushed rock will then be conveyed underground through a tunnel from Resolution Copper to their private land holdings. It will go north of

Superior to an area called West Plant site formerly the historic Magma Mine. There will be a new concentrator built to crush the ore to produce copper concentrate. As the day continued, Mayor Valenzuela and Councilmembers Gilbert Aguilar and Tameron showed several of the town owned properties to prospective businesses that have an interest in the Town of Superior. The mayor and councilmembers were happy to show the old school, the Belmont Hotel and a few other spaces that may be of interest.

Superior Town Council makes plans for 4th of July By Nina Crowder Superior Sun

It has been years since the town of Superior has not had fireworks, we would like to have a wonderful old fashioned Fourth of July in Superior with free food, activities and fireworks. The Town of Superior is soliciting donations to help fund a Fourth of July celebration on the fifth of July for the families and children in Superior. The Town of Superior’s pool will be open on the fourth and fifth of July with free swimming. The minimum cost for a fireworks display is $5,000. If there is something you could help provide for the Fourth of July celebration, volunteering, providing food, water and any donations please contact the town hall at 520-689-5752. Mayor Valenzuela said, “Please help us provide a truly fun Fourth of July for Superior.” The Resolution Copper tour to view the site and meet with dignitaries from Senator McCain’s and Senator Flake’s office was very informative for Mayor Valenzuela and Councilmember Tameron. After the tour Councilmember Aguilar joined the Mayor and Councilmember Tameron to meet with John Godec who handles a Community Working Group with Resolution Copper. Godec explained about the group and how they hope to help get answers to the public’s questions and concerns. Mayor Valenzuela said, “We will add to the next agenda to have a liaison to attend the Communtiy Working Group and the Town Council.” There are two different companies, Native America and TetroTech, that are looking at properties in the Town of Superior and a proposal from both companies shall be forthcoming to the town council. Superior will be the home offices for both companies. This is exciting to have companies interested in the Town of Superior. The consent agenda was approved consisting of the regular meeting minutes for May 15 and the blanket permit for Ginny Baltierra request of her daughter to attend FCCLA. There was a discussion of APS and the updating of agreements.

The Town of Superior owns 477 poles in the town and there are a lot of old wires hanging and could be a danger. This is something the town manager is going to look into, but the town would probably need to remove the old wires. The motion was made and approved to have APS streetlight pole use license agreement, streetlight maintenance and energy agreement. A presentation was made regarding the Waste Water Treatment Plant Rehabilitation by Steve Wedwick and Ramesh Narasimham of NCS Engineering. The plant needs repairs structurally due to corrosion and there needs to be a back up with the plant so when certain components need repair. There needs to be a long-term waste water solution. The Preliminary Engineering

Report (PER) will open the door for additional funding. There have been tours of the plant to evaluate what work needs to be done. Some of the improvements consist of inspection, repairs, recoat, service, influent screening and headwork. The work and construction would take about a year, so the Waste Water Treatment Plant should be up and running efficiently within two years. After the presentation and discussion it was approved and submit to PER and move forward. The next regularly scheduled town council meeting is scheduled for June 19 at 7 p.m. There will be a planning and zoning meeting on June 12 at 6 p.m. Please take the time to attend, ask questions and listen to the town council.

SERVICE SALUTE Ruben Ybarra Jr. reenlists Ruben Ybarra Jr. of Superior has reenlisted in the United States Navy. On Friday, May 30, 2014, Ybarra took the Oath of enlistment and was promoted to Petty Officer 2nd Class. Ybarra is currently stationed in San Diego. Like advancement from Seaman to Petty Officer Third Class, to receive a promotion from Petty Officer Third Class to Petty Officer Second Class sailors must complete a specialty test for their particular rating and apply for advancement every six months. Only a certain number of Petty Officer Second Class billets are available to be filled every year, and competition for promotion is extremely fierce among qualified applicants. It has been a busy year for Ybarra: he arrived from his Middle East deployment in January and was introduced to his son, Ruben Ybarra III, born on Dec. 27, 2013; he has relocated to San Diego, reenlisted and been promoted.

Magma Hotel construction moving along By Mila Besich-Lira Superior Sun The Superior Chamber of Commerce invited the contractor for the Magma Hotel to its May meeting. Keith Roed explained that construction is going well. The plans for the hotel include 21 guest rooms with larger suites on the bottom floor, a full service restaurant, bar and an observation deck. They are also planning on using the old jail behind the hotel for offices and a small museum. The main lobby will be restored to its original ambiance. An official opening date has not been announced. Last week, the stucco was applied and crews continue to work five to six days a week. Originally the developer anticipated a 2014 opening and it appears that the hotel may have its first guests before the end of the year.
