Local honor students visit the nation’s capitol, Big Apple
We did it … Theresa Throop, Maggie DeBlock (President SBCO), Paula Morgan (Co-Director/Vice President Kids’ Closet), Pat Ford (Co-Director VP Kids’ Closet) stand outside the Mammoth Town Hall last month after getting ofﬁcial approval from the Mammoth Town Council to relocate the Kids’ Closet to property owned by the town. (Submitted photo) Sightseers ... National Junior Honor Society members from Mountain Vista School in Oracle and their travel buddies pause for a photo outside a famous location. Can you guess where? (Submitted photo) In what has become an annual pilgrimage, members of the Mountain Vista School’s National Junior Honor Society journeyed across the country to tour the nation’s capital and experience the sights and sounds of New York City. On May 31, 10 NJHS members, along with six adults and a member of the National Honor Society from San Manuel High School, traveled to Washington, DC, and New York where they spent five days touring. While they were there they toured the Capitol, visited Arlington Cemetery where
they witnessed the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, went to Ford’s Theater, and visited many memorials including the Jefferson, Lincoln, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam and the 9-11 Memorial at the Pentagon. While in New York, students enjoyed seeing The Lion King on Broadway, shopping in Times Square, riding the subway and a ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, and visiting Ground Zero. The students have been planning the trip since last August. They participated
in many fundraising events in order to raise money for the trip. They were also the beneficiaries of a $3,950 grant from The SaddleBrooke Community Outreach and from many private individuals who donated through tax credit. The students who went on the trip were Bo Shimmin, Jacquelyn Moffett, Paige Padilla, McKenzie Vincent, Samantha Buckler, Rebekah Peoble, Adriana Berumen, Devan Parkhurst, Anissa Kraetsch, and Dalton Glove. Adults from Mt. Vista included Darlene Cavanaugh who
teaches third grade, Principal Dennis Blauser, and Nannette Soulé, NJHS sponsor. Megan Sanchez represented the NHS from San Manuel High School. The parents who went along were Dawn Martinez, Lizeth Peoble, and Lorraine Berumen. The trip to Washington, DC has become an annual event for the NJHS students at Mountain Vista. It’s an exciting cultural event where the students are exposed to many wonderful experiences along with sleep deprivation as they try to cram so much site seeing into such a short amount of time.
By John Hernandez Last week while reading the Arizona Daily Star I came across a photo and memoriam of Hal Eustice in the obituary section. It was in memory of the
20th anniversary of the death of “Coach” Harold Lawrence “Hal” Eustice on June 18, 1991. For those of you too young to remember Coach Eustice, he was the baseball coach at San Manuel High School from 1961 until 1965. He started his coaching and teaching career in 1960 in San Manuel. He was an assistant football coach under Fred Littau. In his first year as baseball coach his team won the conference championship. This was the start of the winning tradition of the San Manuel Miners baseball program. In 1963 he led the Miners to their first State Championship. Overall his teams won five district championships. He left after the 1965 season to be head baseball coach at Cochise College in Douglas, Arizona. He
offered two of his San Manuel seniors baseball scholarships at Cochise. Greg Parker and Donnie Payne went on to play for him at Cochise Junior College and would later receive university baseball scholarships – Greg at the University of Nebraska and Donnie at Northern Arizona University. As we all know Donnie Payne recently retired from a distinguished career as the baseball coach of San Manuel High School. I am sure he can tell you some great stories about Coach Eustice and the influence he had on Donnie’s life and career. I refer to Hal Eustice as “Coach” although I never actually played baseball for him. If you followed San Manuel baseball back then, you knew who Hal Eustice was. My freshman year I remember the first day of baseball practice to this day. There was a little bit of snow on the ground and it was miserably cold. We thought the practice would be cancelled but Coach Eustice wanted to take a look at us younger players. He had us out on the field running, catching fly balls and grounders. If you have ever caught a hard hit ball while your hands are freezing cold you may understand what the practice was like. All I remember is that Coach Eustice’s teams were fundamentally sound and they hustled. They had a winning attitude and competed hard. He commanded respect and you wanted to play for him and do your best. Hal Eustice went on to coach at Hartnell Junior College in
Salinas, California and then at Sahuaro High School in Tucson. He coached 21 years at Sahuaro where his teams won 16 division championships, two State runnerup and three State titles. He had a career record of 436 wins. He was named Coach of the Year three times by the Tucson Citizen, AAA Coach of the Year (1974) and State Baseball Coach of the Year (1984) by the Arizona Daily Star. Hal was named All-Star Coach of the Year for four years by the Arizona Coaches Association. In 1986 he was inducted into the High School Coaches Hall of Fame. He is a member of the Pima County Sports Hall of Fame and the Arizona Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. As an Arizona Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame member, he shares the honor with two other San Manuel baseball coaches, John Bunch and Donnie Payne. I think it would be safe to say that Coach Eustice influenced the two coaches that followed him and San Manuel High School baseball. During his lifetime he guided and mentored many young lives, not only teaching them about baseball but about life. The family of Hal Eustice has started a web page in his honor and is looking for stories and comments to share with others and pass along to their children. I am sure there are many of us around that remember Coach Eustice and have some good stories to share. For details about the web site contact Mary Beth at email@example.com.

Kids’ Closet moving to Mammoth By John Hernandez The Kids’ Closet which has been located at the Gardner Learning Center in San Manuel for many years will be moving to Mammoth next year. SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) will be building a permanent 12,000 square feet structure on land owned by the Town of Mammoth. The building will be located on a 2+ acre site adjacent to Mammoth Elementary School on Highway 77. They are hoping to break ground in September and have the building in operation by May 2012. The Town of Mammoth has agreed to lease the land to SBCO for 30 years with an option of a longer lease. SaddleBrooke Community Outreach decided a move was warranted and they needed more room. The current area at Gardner is 10,000 square feet. The new building will give them more storage space and make it easier for the volunteers that will work there. More than 10,000 new pairs of pants were given out last year. That’s a lot of pant and a lot of room needed to store them. Another reason for the new building is that it would cut the drive time for the kids from San Carlos by at least one hour. Over one third of the kids that use their services are from San Carlos. Kids from Mammoth could also walk to the school instead of being bused to San Manuel. “The Mammoth-San Manuel School district has been so fabulous with us,” said Paula Morgan, Co-Director/Vice President of Kids’ Closet. “They have agreed to let us stay at Gardner until the new building is ready to move into. Dr. Ron Rickel and John Ryan have been great and we would like to thank them for working
with us.” There will be three areas and activities in the new building. One section will have two classrooms where the kids pick out their books, eat lunch and wait for their turn to shop with the Kids’ Closet volunteers. Bathrooms will also be located in this area. When the classrooms are not in use by Kids’ Closet, they can be used by the Town of Mammoth for meetings and classes. They can also be used for summer enrichment programs for the kids. The warehouse section will be where the new clothes, shoes, etc. will be stored. The third section will be filled with new clothes, underwear, new shoes, jackets, jogging sets, short sets, hats, belts, toiletries, etc. for the kids to shop for. The SBCO volunteers say that “this room will be filled with laughter, fun, and lots of oohs and aahs as they pick out their clothes and shoes.” See Kid’s Closet, Page 10

Editor, San Manuel Miner: The Mammoth Committee For The People members, Chairman Roy Romero and
Treasurer John Hill, have started circulating recall petitions for current Mammoth Town Council Members, Robert Koch and Bart Goff. The grounds for both petitions are as stated: Councilman Robert Koch, for not taking serious the responsibility of being a town council member. Councilman Koch has made decisions that do not represent what is best for the entire town, but, for only a select few. He has, on at least one occasion, violated Arizona Revised Statute 38503, and, has not upheld the responsibilities given to a councilman, by the State of Arizona, nor follow through with the responsibilities of Arizona Revised Statute 9-240. Councilman Bart Goff, for not taking seriously the responsibility of being a town council member. Councilman Goff has made decisions that do not represent what is best for the entire town, but,for only a select few, has not upheld the responsibilities given to a councilman by the State of Arizona, and, did not follow through with the responsibilities of Arizona Revised Statute 9-240. We the people feel that a public official must conduct themselves in an impartial manner, and, in the best interest of the citizens of Mammoth. We also feel it is necessary to recall these two council members from office, in the best interest for the future of Mammoth and, most importantly, in the best interest for the citizens of Mammoth. We strongly believe that The Town of Mammoth citizens need to unite and move forward toward a more positive direction. The recall petitions have been circulating within the Town of Mammoth for the last two months. Several citizens have had tremendous support in collecting signatures for the recall against Councilman Koch and Goff. The deadline to submit the recall petitions to the Town of Mammoth Town Clerk/Town Manager is July 28. If you would like to sign the recall petitions, please feel free to contact the following citizens: Roy Romero, 487-2071; John Hill, 487-9221; Juan Barcelo, 487-213; or, Bernie and Gina Medina, 487-9675 /s/ John Hill Editor’s Note: Arizona Revised Statute § 38-503 is about conﬂict of interest, employment prohibitions and can be found, explained, h e r e : h t t p : / / l a w. j u s t i a . com/codes/arizona/2005/ title38/00503.html Arizona Revised Statute § 9-240 is about General powers of common council and is explained here: http://law. onecle.com/arizona/citiesand-towns/9-240.html

CHANecdote #3: Home Sweet Bulgarian Home! Dear Friends and Family, When Bulgarians invite you into their home, you instantly become one of their own . . . that is one of the endearing aspects of this culture and what makes Bulgaria such a special place. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how many times you’ve literally been “around the block”, you instantly become one of their children . . . one of their very small children. And this is especially true when hosting a visitor from a strange foreign land--they feel responsible for your health, happiness, and wellbeing. I have adopted a new family in Bulgaria and I would like to think they’ve adopted me too . . . the Boegevi family. I taught English to their youngest daughter, Tanya, when she was in the 9th grade. Tanya came to see me off when I left Bulgaria after my Peace Corps service had ended, and she was a welcome sight when I was trying to heave two bulging duffel bags out of my block apartment (down several flights of stairs) and onto a bus to return to the capitol (Sofia) as my crazy landlady was pelting me (full force) with bowls and crazed Bulgarski. Tanya and one of the other girls from her class showed up to say goodbye and, needless to say, they were a WELCOMED sight!!! Tanya and I have kept in touch over the years and now I am blessed to stay with her parents this week, even though Tanya is now living and going to school in Sofia. So, I was reminded of this special aspect of Bulgarian culture today when I decided to venture to the town’s center and find some remnants of my old Peace Corps host family, whom I’ve kind of lost contact with over the years. I think I have officially become a Bogoeva as my departure was an immediate cause of worry. My new Maika and Bashta fluttered around me . . . making sure I had my phone, reminding me not to get lost and to watch out for gypsies trying to steal all of my money, cautioning me to be careful of crazy Bulgarian drivers when crossing the street (“they don’t stop”), making sure that I had a jacket and an umbrella, worrying about where I was going and when I would be home, etc. “Don’t worry,” I reminded them in gentle Bulgarian. “I used to live here . . . I know Panagyurishte . . . don’t worry, yes I have my phone and yes I’ll watch out for gypsies, drivers, stray dogs, rain, and whatever else that could threaten my happiness, safety, health, and well-being.” And then I was off, realizing that I am staying in a slightly unfamiliar side of town and I
get lost in my own bedroom. I mean, when I was in the Peace Corps, I ended up at the wrong dentist’s office in Sofia and didn’t realize it until the man was about to drill all of my teeth! YOWCH!!! So, I walked and walked (literally in circles). . . not completely sure how to get to the center even though I just did it with Tanya the other day. I hiked boldly through the cobblestone streets, bypassing goat and horse droppings (as well as the occasional stray dog or stray child), observing a lazy Panagyurishte Sunday unfold before my eyes . . . . ahhh, it’s good to be home!!! I trudged through the little town, getting lost in its magical crevices, watching as old men slowly loaded their horse carts, old women hobbled through the streets on wooden canes, fathers greeted one another and paused to shoot the breeze, and mothers pulled little children by the hands to make a visit to the nearest little shop in order to purchase fresh bread and tart Bulgarian yogurt. I finally found my way to familiar territory and the center of town and, by this point, I was worn out and on the verge of vertigo after all of the twisting and turning, so I made a pit stop at one of the cafes in the center
for a plate full of hot french fries covered in salty Bulgarian cheese and an ice cold Coke. I sat in that cafe for awhile, sipping my Coke and eating my fries, watching as the world passed me by. When I finally continued on to my host family’s house, I finally knew exactly where I was going as I wound my way to their little house, cobblestone by cobblestone. I arrived at the Kostovi home only to find the house all locked and to find out from the neighbors that most of the family is working in Italy (the last time I was here, just the mom and Dad were working in Italy, but others have soon followed suit), however my host sister is apparently living with here grandma (at least some of the time) in a nearby village . . . this has become a mystery that I would love to figure out and I would love to find a way to at least see my host sister either here or there . . . hopefully. So, a little disappointed at the sudden lack of a Bulgarian family and determined to let the Bogoevi’s know they were officially adopting me, I occupied the rest of my time (until my new Maika called, wondering where I was) at a new decent-sized chain supermarket that has recently sprouted up in Panagyurishte.

And, wouldn’t you know it, Oreo cookies have made their way to Bulgaria . . . who would have thought?!!?

Mammoth and Dudleyville: Recycling bins moved to Dudleyville Landfill
Editor, San Manuel Miner: For Tri-Community residents interested in the results of the search for an alternate
FLORENCE – Recycling bins located in Dudleyville and Mammoth are being relocated by Pinal County crews to the Dudleyville Landfill. The recycling bins at the Oracle Transfer Station are unaffected by this change. The decision to move the bins came after multiple instances of individuals discarding their household trash in the recycling bins. Cross-contamination with non-recyclable materials typically results in the entire load being rejected. The raw recyclable materials are then unmarketable. Chairman Pete Rios stressed that the recycling program will continue. “It is not coming to an end,” Chairman Rios said. “Recycling is an important part of our ‘going green’ program in the rural areas.

people who misused these bins and dumped their trash in them. We made the decision to move them to an area where the bins can be more closely monitored.” Chairman Rios added that the free waste disposal voucher program is also still a valuable benefit for residents in the eastern part of Pinal County. “The voucher program is alive and well,” said Chairman Rios. “Obtaining a waste disposal voucher allows residents to dispose of residential debris three times per year. There is no need to use our desert as a dumping ground. It’s unsightly, unhealthy and it’s against the law.” The vouchers are a replacement for the free dump days that used to take place throughout the San Pedro Valley area.

Sea Lions remain undefeated The San Manuel Sea Lions traveled to Coolidge on Saturday to compete in a swim meet against Coolidge and San Tan Valley. After the close meet in the San Manuel Pool a couple of weeks ago, it looked like the Coolidge Dolphins may have what it takes to end the Sea Lions’ five-year winning streak, especially at a meet held in Coolidge. The Sea Lion swimmers showed up ready to race in every event and took the early lead and never looked back. The Sea Lions won with 894 points, the Coolidge Dolphins finished second with 724 points, and the San Tan Valley Barracudas finished third with 141 points. The coaches were overjoyed with the performance of Sea Lions swimmers. Swimmer after swimmer posted best times in an unfamiliar pool, on an extremely hot day, when the team needed it the most. A total of 14 team records were broken on Saturday. Swimmers breaking team records included the following: Will Newman (11), Arielle Gray (12), Meghan Cook (15), Parker Gray (15), and Maya Gort (17). Two swimmers turned in outstanding performances: Michael Primero-Predgo (10), and Will Newman (11) both had the perfect day, each winning all eight events they entered. The following swimmers had first place finishes on Saturday: Tabitha Kellam, 7, (Medley Relay, Free Relay); Evan Apuron, 8, (IM, Fly, Back, Free, 50 Free, Free

Sheriff Babeu promotes four to rank of Sergeant Sheriff Paul Babeu promoted the four at the Holiday Inn Express in Florence. Peoble, who has 10 years of law enforcement experience, was joined by Christopher Lapre (10 years),

Use of ﬁreworks banned
FLORENCE – Due to the extreme fire risk and the fact that nearly one million acres have already burned in parts of Arizona, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors today enacted a ban on the use of consumer fireworks. While Arizona Revised Statutes 36-1606 made it possible for people to purchase consumer fireworks, the statute also allows counties to ban the use of fireworks if a “reasonable risk of wildfires” exists. While it is not against the law to purchase fireworks, discharging them in unincorporated Pinal County is against the law while the ban is in effect. The Board can lift the ban in the future when the risk has subsided due to increased rains. This ban pertains to consumer fireworks in all of unincorporated Pinal County. Residents within Pinal County’s incorporated communities should check with their local city or town before including fireworks in their celebrations. Similar bans are in effect in other jurisdictions including Maricopa County, Pima County, Coconino County, Cochise County, State Trust Lands and the Bureau of Land Management. The ban does not affect or cancel commercial fireworks displays. Community fireworks shows are likely to still take place, albeit with heightened care. According to data tracked by the National Interagency Fire Center, wildfires have claimed more than 3.1 million acres in the United States since the start of the year. A total of 3.2 million acres were lost to wildfires last year – for the whole year. A CNN report indicates that the number of acres burned thus far in 2011 is three times the 10-year average. “We have dispatched Pinal County employees to assist with the Wallow Fire and Monument Fires,” Supervisor David Snider said. “We have been fortunate to have no loss of life but the property loss is incredible. We cannot afford to take the chance and add to the strain on our firefighting resources.” “I support this action due to the tremendous risk our state is facing. Some of the most beautiful terrain in Arizona has burned. Extreme fire risk coupled with no rain is already a recipe for disaster. We cannot add fireworks to the mix,” Vice Chairman Bryan Martyn said. “These fires are making a bad situation worse. The cost to fight wildland fires is phenomenal and we’re under intense financial strain as it is. When the rains come and the risk subsides, we can look at lifting the ban,” Chairman Pete Rios said after the meeting.

Madison Avenue on American Avenue: new store to open By John Hernandez Carol Cosgrove spent months researching the possibility of opening “a fun and affordable place to shop local.” Carol is originally from
New Jersey where she was a teacher at a private school. She contacted some friends of hers back east who are buyers for Macy’s, Nordstrom, Saks, and Neiman-Marcus. Her friends
set her up with some contacts in Los Angeles and things started to fall into place. Her shop, Penni Wyz Boutique, will offer the best fashions and accessories from
both coasts. “I can offer a little bit of Madison Avenue on American Avenue,” Carol said. Penni Wyz Boutique is located in Oracle at 1880 West American Avenue, next to Class’e Looks N Oracle hair salon. “Oracle has so many offerings. Food market, great places to eat, hair and nail salons, exercise, massage, florist, library, community center, great schools, artists, and the list goes on. Shopping, eating, and donating local helps build our community and gives opportunity for others to bring in new venues,” Carol said. Penni Wyz will be looking for local unique items from local vendors. The grand opening will be on Friday, July 1, beginning at 9 a.m. Regular hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday each week. Penni Wyz boutique will be offering high end brand names at low end pricing. Fashions
from Mon-Petit, Claiborne, Hilfiger, Jones NY, Alfani and more will be available in sizes from petite to 3X. “We will have top quality merchandise at thrift store prices,” Carol said. “I fully appreciate that retail shoppers feel pinched as gasoline and groceries eat up more of their paychecks. I want to lower the prices and make it affordable for the area.” Carol says to come in and let her know what you like. “If we don’t have it, we can order it for you,” she said. “We all want to feel like the best, most glamorous version

In addition to the water quality constituents listed in the above table, Arizona Water Company's water supplies were tested for the following constituents and such constituents were not detected: Total Coliform Bacteria, Antimony, Asbestos, Beryllium, Cadmium, Cyanide, Mercury (Inorganic), Nitrite (as Nitrogen), Selenium, Thallium, 2,4-D, 2,4,5-TP (Silvex), Alachlor, Atrazine, Benzo(a)pyrene (PAH), Carbofuran, Chlordane, Dalapon, Di(2-ethylhexyl) Adipate, Di(2ethylhexyl) Phthalate, Dibromochloropropane, Dichloromethane, Dinoseb, Diquat, Endothall, Endrin, Ethylene Dibro-mide, Glyphosate, Heptachlor, Heptachlor Epoxide, Hexachlorobenzene, Hexachlorocyclopentadiene, Lindane, Methoxychlor, Oxamyl (Vydate), PCBs (Poly-chlorinated Biphenyls), Pentachlorophenol, Picloram, Simazine, Toxaphene, Benzene, Carbon Tetrachloride, (Mono)Chlorobenzene, o-Dichlorobenzene, p-Dichlorobenzene, 1,2Ð Dichloroethane, 1,1Dichloroethylene, cis-1,2-Dichloroethylene, trans-1,2-Dichloroethylene, 1,2-Dichloropropane, Ethylbenzene, Styrene, Tetrachloroethylene, 1,2,4Trichlorobenzene, 1,1,1-Trichloroethane, 1,1,2-Trichloroethane, Trichloroethylene, Toluene, Vinyl Chloride, Xylenes, Aldicarb, Aldi-carb Sulfone, Aldicarb Sulfoxide, Aldrin, Bromobenzene, Bromodichloromethane, Bromoform, Bromomethane (Methyl Bromide), Butachlor, Carbaryl, Chlorodi-bromomethane, Chloroethane, Chloroform, Chloromethane, o-Chlorotoluene, p-Chlorotoluene, Dibromomethane, Dicamba, m-Dichlorobenzene, 1,1-Dichloro-ethane, 2,2Dichloropropane, 1,3-Dichloropropane, 1,1-Dichloropropene, 1,3-Dichloropropene, Dieldrin, 3-Hydroxycarbofuran, Methomyl, Metholachlor, Metribuzin, Propachlor, 1,1,1,2-Tetrachloroethane, 1,1,2,2-Tetrachloroethane, 1,2,3-Trichloropropane, Nickel, and Combined Radium.
In developing new drinking water standards, the EPA has proposed including Radon on the regulated contaminant list with an MCL of 300 to 4000 pCi/L. Arizona Water Company collected samples at a number of its wells in the Oracle water system in 1999 and found the average level of Radon to be 395 pCi/L, with a range from 330 to 460 pCi/L. Additional information on Radon is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). While your drinking water complies with EPA's standard for arsenic, it does contain low levels of arsenic. EPA's standard balances the current understanding of arsenic's possible health effects against the costs of removing arsenic from drinking water. EPA continues to research the health effects of low levels of arsenic, which is a mineral known to cause cancer in humans at high concentrations and is linked to other health effects such as skin damage and circulatory problems. Note: Data presented are from the most recent testing done in accordance with applicable regulations. Some constituents are monitored less frequently than once a year because either their concentrations do not change frequently or they are not likely to be detected. Therefore, some of the water quality testing data contained herein, although representative, may be more than one year old. If you have questions about this water quality report please contact Regina Lynde, Environmental Compliance Supervisor, Arizona Water Company, P. O. Box 29006, Phoenix, Arizona 85038-9006. Telephone (602) 240-6860 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. In 2003, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) completed a Source Water Assessment of three ground water wells, which are the sources of water used by Arizona Water Company's Oracle water system. The Assessment reviewed the adjacent land uses that may pose a potential risk to the wells. These risks include, but are not limited to: gas stations, landfills, dry cleaners, agriculture fields, waste water treatment plants, and mining activities. Once ADEQ identified the adjacent land uses, they were ranked as to their potential to affect the wells. The result of the Assessment was a low risk to the sources of water. Residents can help protect sources of water by practicing good septic system maintenance, taking hazardous household chemicals to hazardous material collection sites, and limiting pesticide and fertilizer use. The complete Assessment is available for inspection at ADEQ, 1110 West Washington Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85007, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Electronic copies are available from ADEQ at email@example.com. For more information visit ADEQÕ s Source Water Assessment and Protection Unit website at: www.azdeq.gov/environ/water/dw/swap.html.
The EPA requires that Arizona Water Company provide the following information. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of various contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Constituents that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbials, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganics, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organics, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radionuclides, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain constituents in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for constituents in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

Consumer Confidence Report TOWN OF MAMMOTH (11-018) Annual Drinking Water Quality Report 1/1/10 - 12/31/10 The Town of Mammoth is pleased to present this year’s Annual Quality Water Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water and we want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. In 2010 our drinking water met all federal and state requirements. We take monthly samples for coliform bacteria and chlorine, and annual samples for disinfection by-products (TTHM and HAA), nitrates, and nitrites. The table, below summarizes the water quality data. The Town of Mammoth will not be providing copies of this CCR by mail, however copies of the report can be obtained at the Town Hall or at the Public Works Office. The public is always welcome to contact the Public Works Office at 520-487-9044 or attend a Town Council Meeting held the third Thursday of every month.

Continued from Page 1 The idea for what developed into the new Kids’ Closet site came from Theresa Throop, a Mammoth resident and a real estate agent for Oracle Land and Homes. She conceived the idea to approach the Town of Mammoth for help. “She was absolutely phenomenal with getting us together with the right people,” said Paula. Theresa guided the SBCO representatives through the Town Council meetings and they were able to get their approval. SBCO would like to thank Theresa, Mayor Craig Williams for his leadership and support of our efforts, the Mammoth Town Council, and the planning and zoning committee for helping make this possible. They also thank Deb Foster, owner of the Foster Motor Lodge in Mammoth for her assistance and support. The Kids’ Closet building will not only be beneficial to the kids but will provide jobs and economic growth for the community. Plans are to have a pre-fab steel building constructed on the site. Local contractors and workers will be needed for on-site preparation, installation of utilities, air conditioning and the internal construction. “We are adamant about using local workers and companies. We like the idea that they will have a vested interest in Kids’ Closet,” Paula said. SBCO is looking for local construction companies, skilled laborers, electricians, plumbers, AC technicians, etc. that are bonded and insured. Interested local contractors/ construction companies are urged to contact SBCO Monday through Wednesday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and leave their contact information. The SBCO number is (520) 825-3302, leave your contact information and messages to the attention of Maggie DeBlock or Paula Morgan. Once the building is completed, janitorial cleaning services and periodic maintenance services will be needed. SBCO will give preference to hiring local people or companies to do the job. Volunteers working at the site or warehouse delivery drivers and stockers will probably need a place to eat lunch, supporting local restaurants and businesses. If for some reason, the Kids’ Closet is no longer needed or funding is lost, the lease would be cancelled and the building would become the property of the Town of Mammoth to use as they see fit. Kids’ Closet is a clothing bank for students from preschool through eighth grade. The kids receive new sets of clothing in the Fall and Spring. Volunteers assist the students in selecting their free clothing. It is part of the wonderful organization SaddleBrooke Community Outreach. Kids’ Closet reaches out to kids in three counties including the towns of Mammoth, San Manuel, Oracle, Catalina, SaddleBrooke, Winkelman, Kearny, Superior and San Carlos. Last year they gave clothes to more than 2,200 kids. The Golden Goose Thrift Shop in Catalina provides more than 50 percent of the funding for Kids’ Closet. Profits from the Golden Goose are split evenly between SaddleBrooke Community Outreach and Catalina Community Services (food bank). If you are purchasing an item at the Golden Goose, you are helping the kids and people in your community. The rest of the funding comes from grants applied for by SaddleBrooke Community Outreach volunteers and fundraisers. The fundraisers include the Walkathon and the Holiday Home Tours. It would be nice to see local groups or individuals get out and support SBCO which has done a lot for the TriCommunity and others.

Mountain Vista Summer School shows that kids don’t always want to get out from under ‘teacher’s rule’ By John Hernandez “No more pencils! No more books!” Thus begins the poem
recited by children for many years when summer break finally rolls around.
MAXIMUM CHOICES MINIMUM PRICES Packages Starting at
Everyday Price $34.99/mo For 12 months
Offer ends 1/31/12. Restrictions apply. Call for details.
But in Oracle at Mountain Vista School, there are a bunch of kids who don’t sing that song. Summer school at Mountain Vista is coming to an end this week but the students and teachers are already looking forward to next year’s session. More than 150 kids enjoyed the summer learning reading, writing, math, science, crafts and physical education in a fun environment. Lori Tate, teacher and head of the summer program said there was an “overwhelming
Students play a word building game. (John Hernandez photo) response” for this year’s program. “The kids are having a great time! Everyone loves it,” she said. The students participated in many hands on activities using computers and Smartboards. In a camping themed reading class, they pitched tents and read by flashlight. For science they made home made ice cream, made a working model of a volcano and watched educational films on animals. They used fun card and dice games while learning and enhancing their math skills. The fun and creative atmosphere of the summer school program allowed for a smaller teacher and teacher’s aide to student ratio of one to six which allowed the children to have more direct supervision and participate in more hands on activities. The kids also received free tutoring using high school students. Free breakfast and lunch was served daily. The free breakfast and lunch program will continue until July 8. It is open to any child from birth to age 18. Adults can also have breakfast or lunch at the Mountain Vista cafeteria for $2.50. Breakfast is served from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. and lunchf romnoonunt il 1p.m .
Pinal County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) The Pinal County LEPC is inviting the public, local businesses, communities, private citizens and government agencies and their employees to attend our quarterly meetings on the 1st Thursday after the 1st Monday in the months of February, May, August, and November. Our next meeting is on August 4, 2011 at 2:00pm, at 31 N. Pinal Street, Florence, in the Pinal County Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
What Is the Pinal County LEPC? The Pinal County LEPC is one of the 15 state LEPCs that is overseen by the Arizona State Emergency Response Commission (AZSERC), which is tasked with the implementation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPRCA) in Arizona. Our LEPCs play the critical role of providing information of existing chemical hazards within the county in order for everyone to be better prepared to understand, manage, and respond to these potential hazards. The LEPC does this by forming partnerships between responders, local governments, communities, businesses, media, academia, and the public.
What Does the LEPC Do? 1. Encourages PREVENTION by providing public information on the causes of hazardous material accidents. 2. Encourages PREPAREDNESS through the development of Emergency Response Plans by entities handling, manufacturing, storing, transporting or disposing of hazardous materials. 3. Encourages PLANNING for emergencies by making training available to first responders, businesses, and members of the LEPC.
Who Are LEPC Members? • Public/Community Groups • Elected Local Officials • Emergency Management • Law Enforcement • Fire Service/HAZMAT/EMS • Emergency Medical Services • Environmental Health • Local Environmental • Broadcast and Print Media • Owners & Operator of Facilities subject to EPCRA Requirements The Pinal County LEPC Mission Statement “To coordinate the public and private responses that may be required/requested to minimize the impact of hazardous materials (HAZMAT) accidents/incidents on health, safety, property and the environment; and to minimize the exposure of the populace to an accidental release of HAZMAT through the establishment of effective warning, evacuation, sheltering, decontamination, and recovery procedures” Questions?
