Community talks U.S. 60 Expansion, requests project modifications By Mila Besich Lira For several years, Superior resident have waited patiently for the arrival of the U.S. 60 Highway expansion, which includes four lanes of divided highway constructed to the airport and four lanes with a median to be constructed from the Airport to the Highway 177 Bridge. The project is not ready to break ground anytime

soon, however the Arizona State Transportation Board will be voting on Friday to approve a timeline and scope for the proposed expansion. The proposed design of the expansion has drawn concern from the Superior Town Council and the Superior Chamber of Commerce. The community meeting to advocate for the project was called together and coordinated by Vice

Mayor Olga Lopez as an effort to educate the community on the expansion project. Town clerk Rita Wentzel gave a history of the project and shared how the proposed project could both positively and negatively affect the town. With recent budget cutbacks at the state and federal level, the Transportation Board is expected to vote on

a proposal that will allow for a combination of preservation and major projects. This scenario focuses on some investment in major projects that are programed in greater Arizona will less investment in keeping existing highways in good repair. The board was originally considering three different scenarios.

However, Scenario C is recommended by ADOT staff. According to the Transportation Board Agenda item, Scenario C will allow for 39 bridge projects and 524 miles of pavement preservation projects throughout the state. Scenario A focuses on pavement preservation, while Scenario B focuses on programmed major projects. Scenario C

includes both major projects and pavement preservation. The Silver King/Superior Streets project was originally only included in Scenario B but was added into Scenario C earlier this week. The Town of Superior, along with the Superior Chamber of Commerce, submitted letters of support for the highway expansion project last Expansion, Page 5

Supervisor Rios discusses approved 2013-14 budget As we hit the hot summer months, the county’s budget process once again takes center stage as we head into the new fiscal year. Recently the Board of Supervisors adopted the tentative budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.  The tentative budget approved by the supervisors totals $373,723,558.    This budget continues our path

to increased fiscal responsibility. I have always believed that Pinal County should maximize the use of your tax dollar.  In fact, the county only accounts for 27 percent of your property tax bill.  That means for every dollar in property taxes you pay, we only use 27 cents.  The other 73 cents is used by Central Arizona College, public school districts, cities and

towns along with other entities. Looking at your property tax rate, Pinal County is keeping that the same at $3.79.  To keep that rate from increasing, our county elected officials have worked with our budget department to transfer some of their non-budgeted funds to the general fund.  We are still seeing a decline in our property tax collections as of 2013 due to lower property assessment valuations.  Even with no increase to the primary property tax rate the county will collect $7 million less due to the decline in home values that occurred 18 to 24 months ago.   The distribution of the general fund breaks down like this: public safety and law enforcement receive 63 percent, general government operations receive 23 percent, health services receives 13 percent while other expenditures account for one percent.   There is a lot of good in this budget for District One.  There is money set aside for the rehabilitation of the Kelvin Bridge.  We will also see more dirt roads paved, not only in District One but throughout the entire county as well.  This will help to cut down on the fugitive dust across several areas of the county.   The only issue I wanted to see addressed differently in this budget was cost of living adjustments for our employees.  I was hoping to see a raise for our employees starting in July after going five years without an increase.  That has been put off to later in the budget year based on a yet to be decided manner.   Since this is the tentative budget, the figures can go down, but not up.  It is a fiscally responsible budget that addresses many issues that affect Pinal County.  My thanks to the county’s budget staff that worked hard on making this budget a reality. /s/ Pete Rios Pinal County Board of Supervisors

McGuire’s amendment brings Pinal a vital $550,000 management to public health and safety. Counties have historically received lottery revenues since 1986. In the most recent year for which distributions were made, $7.65 million went to counties – $550,000 for each of the 13 rural counties and $250,000 each for Pima and Maricopa counties. In 2011, lottery revenue sharing was eliminated to assist the state in resolving its budget crisis.

Fuentes and Padilla Expansion Continued from Page 3 month, but have requested play in modifications to the project construction that has been proposed by Division ADOT. The modifications by the Town VI Senior requested of Superior and the Chamber of Commerce Bowl ask ADOT to consider By Andrew Luberda Recent Superior Panthers graduates Louis Fuentes and Mario Padilla were selected to play in the Arizona Coaches Association Division VI Senior Bowl. The game was played at Mogollon High School in Heber, AZ on June 8, 2013. Division VI football is played with eight players per side and the Senior Bowl includes some of the top seniors in the state. Both Fuentes and Padilla were football award winners at the Panthers’ annual award ceremony in May. Fuentes was named Most Offensive Player while Padilla was named Most Defensive Player. Fuentes and Padilla were members of the Blue team which fell to the Red team, 50 – 6. A webcast of the game can be viewed at AIA365. com.

On May 16, the Arizona State Senate passed a version of the state budget, Senate Bill 1483. Senator Barbara McGuire turned her attention to the lottery distribution and noted that the plan only included distributions to 10 counties with Pinal not among the list. She quickly pushed for a floor amendment to direct lottery distributions to 13 counties in the amount of $550,000 each. The Senate budget then

stalled, but McGuire continued to argue that all 13 rural counties should benefit from lottery revenue. During the final hours of budget negotiations, the House and Senate reached an agreement that included the lottery distribution to Arizona’s 13 rural counties. This is the budget that Governor Jan Brewer signed yesterday. “To say this year’s state budget talks were contentious is probably

allowing the access road, under the current U.S. 60 alignment, to merge with the proposed four lane alignment going to the east. The current plan without modifications will create a dead end street just east of the Arboretum, forcing visitors travel west before they can turn east to visit Superior. The second modification request is to eliminate

the proposed median structures along the Superior Streets segment. The proposed medians will limit left turns into businesses on the highway as well as affect the parking of several local establishments. Community leaders Expansion, Page 10

a huge understatement,” said Pinal County Board Chairman Steve Miller. “Pinal County has suffered through the recession by tightening our own belt, even while the state was cutting our funding in a ‘double whammy.’ We

appreciate the hard work of Senator McGuire to ensure that our residents get a share of the lottery revenues. We look forward to working with our legislators again next year to restore other funding as the state’s fiscal health improves.”

Girls State

Continued from Page 6 According to Penny Maklary, Girls State Director, this is a week that shapes a lifetime.” She explained that girls will be housed in Coronado Hall, and utilize other instructional classrooms throughout the university. “Like in past years,” she said, “we have senior staff that work as city and county advisors, while junior counselors return from last year’s Girls State and assist Senior Staff in the education process.” Arizona Girls State is comprised of 12 cities and four counties. There are 24 to 28 girls in each city and about 75 girls in each county. The girls are divided into two pseudo political parties called federalists and nationalists. Precinct committeemen watch over all elections and assist political parties. Each city will elect a mayor and counsel, and they will write their own ordinances and resolutions, pass a budget and have a working plan for planning and zoning. Cities are assigned to a County and the educational process continues with campaigning

and election to County and State positions. During the span of the week, they will conduct regular city and party meetings, write and debate bills, all while receive instruction from actual elected state/county officials and learn by doing”. Midweek, they will elect the prominent positions of Governor and Secretary of State. The girls elected to these two positions will return to the 67th session and preside over that Arizona Girls State. Culminating the week is the election of two delegates as senators to attend the prestigious Girls Nation held the following month in Washington, DC. Girls Nation is an all-expense-paid week with other Girls Staters from across the nation who will debate federal issues they present as bills, visit the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, the White House and other memorials in the nation’s capital.

Let’s look at Proverbs 16:20-22.  “Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.  The wise in heart are called discerning, and pleasant words promote instruction.  Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it.” Longevity, prosperity and discernment; these are things we desire in our lives, yet seldom attain.  It all begins by trusting in the Lord.  Scripture tells us that when we do this, He will guide our

footsteps. The result is that we receive His blessings upon our lives. Harshly spoken words promote rebellion and chaos, while pleasant words allow us to receive instruction; which brings us into prosperity.  Instruction increases wisdom, which results in understanding. It all ties together.  The Scriptures tell us that as

we let God into our lives, we will gain a peace so incredible, that few can understand it. That peace becomes a calmness amid the storms and chaos of life. The secret to a life well lived is found in the Bible.  Read and study it.  Let the light and wisdom of God flow through you, surrounding others with God’s un-ending love.
