Offering another opinion for the SPD-PCSO debate Regarding a letter from Charles Davidson dated May 18, 2013 entitled “In support of local police”, I would like to offer a different point of view. All law enforcement put their lives on the line for all of us. That should include the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office


(PCSO) and the Superior Police department (SPD), and all other law enforcement agencies across the U.S. It’s their jobs; officers are aware of that the first day they apply. The SPD is in a defunct situation because their budget is shot. Superior is in a money crunch throughout all of Supe-

rior, both residents and town budget. Future sustainability is once again on the line. SPD officers not living in town and with no plans to move to Superior are a major contribution to their empty budget. They are allowed to drive Superior police cars back and forth to home, work and who knows wherever. How many other working people who drive out of town to work every day get to use their company’s car at home or wherever? The thought is absurd, so why should we allow our officers to do that? What do you think the amount of wear-and-tear, tires and gas

has been? Pinal County Sheriff’s department will take care of that in their proposal. They also furnish vehicle repair. SPD doesn’t have the means or a person on board to do that. The cost of having SPD come up to par and to include the other 15 things PCSD is offering would be almost twice what PCSD is asking, plus the SPD officers will have to live in Superior. If you and others would look at this debate with an open mind, make your own pros and cons list for each agency, and foremost, take your personal feelings out of the

Council honors new and old service members, passes new pool rates By Chase Kamp Superior Sun The regular meeting of the Superior town council on Jun. 6 was rather busy, meaning its two newest members had a lot to consider in their first meeting before the public.

New councilmen Michael Alonzo and Stephen Estatico were sworn in and took their seats at the beginning of the meeting. The two replaced Chris Tomerlin, who lost the election held in March, and Irene Hansen, who sat in

for resigned member Hank Gutierrez beginning in Aug. 2012. Mayor Jayme Valenzuela and councilman Gilbert Aguilar were reelected to the new Board in the March election. In addition to the two newcomers, two longtime faces of Superior officially said goodbye at the meeting. Former Superior Police Department Chief Lou Digirilamo, who announced his retirement in April, was honored with a plaque for his seven years of service and given a standing ovation at the meeting. Several council members and Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu offered their praise of Digirilamo’s service. To replace him, Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Pat Ramirez was appointed in charge of the Superior Police

Department. Rita Wentzel also announced she will step down as finance director and town clerk effective June 21. Councilmember Olga Lopez praised Wentzel for her years of service in performing many flexible roles in the town government. “I don’t know how we’re going to manage without her,” Lopez said. “I hate to see this resignation, but it is her choice.” The new Superior town code is available for viewing on the town website, The code will seek approval at the next council meeting. Town manager K. Kane Graves, who worked on the updates to the town code, said the town would still have 30 days after approval of the code to make any overlooked changes. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu also presented a number of donations to local entities. The money was drawn from RICO funds, or dollars obtained from criminal activity.

Senior High sports. The Superior Robotics club also received $2,500. Babeu gave $5,000 each to Town of Superior winter programs, recreation programs and substance abuse assistance programs as well. Lastly, the council passed some slightly higher prices for the town pool this summer. Instead of $30 for a season family pass, the rate was changed to $50 for an immediate family of six and $8 for each additional member. While the daily entry fee for children was kept at $1, seniors will be charged $2 and adults $3, a bump of $1 each. Private parties will also cost $75 per hour instead of $50 an hour. Elizabeth Magallanez, who made a presentation on behalf of the pool, said even after these new changes, Superior is charging less than Kearny does for its pool entry.

Sulfuric acid found at Battle Axe Road Trailhead Bureau of Land Management Officials are closing State Route 177 for a day to clean up illegal dumping of sulfuric acid. The sulfuric acid was

discovered on the Battle Axe Road trailhead parking lot. They say the spill created a public health hazard near the junction of Battle Axe Road and State Route 177.

Cleanup is expected to be completed by June 15. The road will be closed Friday, June 14, while crews clean up. BLM officials say an

environmental emergency response contractor will excavate, containerize, remove and dispose of sulfuric acid contaminated soils at a licensed landfill.

Defensive Divas to host female defense seminar Kearny - Safety experts agree the single most important step toward ensuring a woman’s personal safety is making the conscious decision to refuse to be a victim. The Defensive Divas and the Well Armed Woman Copper Basin Chapter of Kearny will be hosting the Refuse to Be a Victim seminar at the Copper Valley Christian Center located at 305 Croydon Road in Kearny. Women stand a much better chance of preventing criminal attack if they develop a safety plan before they need it. That is why the Refuse to Be a Victim crime prevention seminar, a program of the National Rifle Association, was developed. The seminar teaches easyto-understand methods to increase awareness and prevent criminal confrontation. In just four hours, attendees will get the tools they need to develop their own personal safety strategy, including information about the psychology of the criminal mind, home and phone security, automobile and travel security, personal and technological security, self defense devices, training options and more.

The event is on July 19 starting at 5:30 p.m. with a registration fee of $25.

The deadline for registration is June 26. To register or get more

Superior student overcomes obstacles toward ASU graduation By Chase Kamp Superior Sun Superior High School graduate Matthew Magallanez faced some steep challenges when he enrolled at Arizona State, but his hard work paid off upon finally graduating. This spring, he received his Bachelors of Science in criminology and criminal justice with a minor in social welfare, graduating with

Magna Cum Laude honors. In his time at school, Magallanez also served on the Consejo de Estudiantes Líderes Latinos, or CELL, which is the Council of Latino Student Leaders. “I always had a goal and had to figure out what to do to work toward that goal and take it step by step,” he said. The journey along the way had some snags. Magallanez

was offered a number of scholarships his freshman year at the ASU West campus in Glendale, but some of them could not be renewed the next year due to lack of funding. His major program was also moved to the downtown Phoenix ASU campus. “I had to change my major to undecided for a year and then switch to retain scholarship,” he said. Making up for the rest of the tuition money would not be so easy. He took on a position as a community assistant in a residence hall, sometimes known as a resident advisor position. He said he grew to like it a lot, creating a community atmosphere at the resident home. “We do programming focused on academic achievement and engagement,” he said. “We focus our attention on the students and make sure they’re doing well and having a good time.”

Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

He eventually became the lead community assistant and was the first person at the ASU West campus to lead both of the school’s resident halls. Last November, Magallanez thought the Thanksgiving vacation would offer a weekend of relief, but an unexpected sickness flared up, landing him in the hospital for five days. He was hit with a bout of diverticulitis, which caused pockets in the intestines to get infected and inflamed, and can sometimes burst like an infected appendix. “It was very painful,” he said. Regardless, he finished his degree in hopes of achieving his goal of becoming a probation officer. “In high school, I took a law-related education class,” he explained. “It got me interested in criminology.” Now that graduation is over, he still is not resting on his laurels. “I’ve been waiting to hear back from jobs I’ve applied for,” he said. His mother, Elizabeth Magallanez, said the family is very proud. “He was faced with a lot of obstacles, but he always found a workaround,” she said. She hopes that others from small towns will see her son

Matthew Magallanez is a recent graduate of Arizona State University. as an example of academic excellence. “[Rural students] think they can’t go to the big city straight from high school to a university,” she said. Magallanez said he would

advise others like him to not be afraid to pursue their dreams. “My advice would be to have a goal and then go for it,” he said. “Don’t let anybody tell them otherwise.”

One day, everything we have ever done or said, will be laid out before Him and we will have to give an account of all we have said or done – good or bad – to the Lord.  It will not be an option, it will happen. The question is, are we ready and willing to do that?  If there is sin in our lives, we will be judged accordingly.  How do we skip that part?  By confessing all that we have done wrong to Jesus

Citizens are reminded to call budget Silent Witness at 1-800-358By Chase Kamp Superior Sun Adhering to a pledge not to raise property taxes, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors adopted a tentative fiscal year 201314 budget of $373,723,558 at its regular meeting on June 6, resulting in about $7 million less in collected property tax revenue. The Board also neglected a budget overage request by Sheriff Paul Babeu, though public safety represents 63 percent of total budget expenditures. Property taxes for the coming year are based on real estate sales from 2010 and 2011, when property values were still declining. Highlights of the budget also included funding for phase two of Hunt Highway completion, the extension of Ironwood/ Gantzel Road and the continued surfacing of dirt roads and pavement preservation projects. After the Board voted down his $12.1 million proposal in April, Babeu said he worked to return with a pared request of $2.75 million. The request, which died for lack of a motion, allotted additional funds for improved pay for sworn staff, holiday pay and replacement vehicles. Babeu argued that in unincorporated areas of Pinal, PCSO has less than half of the staffing per population compared to Apache Junction police. Budget, Page 11

Continued from Page 10 He also said the county needs to have more competitive wages to combat 22 percent attrition on the force. The Board voiced appreciation for the Sheriff’s truncated proposal and his effort to help deputies, but all were mum when the item came to a vote. Supervisor Anthony Smith explained he could not support the measure as Pinal meets state averages in sworn officers per 10,000 residents and crime rate. “It’s a matter of not being able to afford it, this year especially,” he said. In a 3-2 vote, the Board also voted down a budget management proposal by county attorney Lando Voyles that would allow elected department heads to roll over annual savings to the following year’s budget in a reserve subaccount. Voyles argued the measure would give elected officials incentive to save money. Supervisor Pete Rios pointed to a previous failed effort by Babeu to pass a similar measure at the state legislature. Smith feared the move would create unregulated silos of tax dollars. County budget leaders were also disapproving. Budget director Leo Lew said it would severely complicate the budget process. “It opens the door for conflict with Arizona Revised Statutes and bad financial management,” Lew told the Board. The final budget, slated for review later this month, can be the same amount presented or lower, as the adopted budget cannot be higher than the tentative budget by law.
