with the 2013 fall semester. Starting with classes that begin after 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 16, students will no longer be allowed to register for classes that have already started. “When our students register on time,” Debbie Foster, professor of speech communication at CAC, explained, “they are more likely to be successful in their classes, get into the classes they want, complete their degrees on time, and avoid lastminute hassles.” Some of these last-minute hassles include missing the first day of class and being put on a waiting list - the latter recently implemented by CAC in lieu of course overrides. For students registering using CAC’s online student services, open classes will be available for enrollment until midnight prior to the first day of the semester. After

Superior Police Department under new temporary leadership By Mila Besich Lira The Town of Superior is currently using a Sergeant from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office to provide coverage until town leadership decides on the future of Superior Police Department. Town leaders have been in talks with PCSO to dissolve SPD and accept contracted patrol from county deputies. PCSO has assigned Sgt. Pat Ramirez to handle the duties of police chief. According to Superior Town Manager Kane Graves, the council is expected to approve Ramirez as an interim chief. Over the month of May, the Superior Town Council held two public forums examining the pros and cons of SPD staying in tact or the Town contracting with PCSO. There have been no votes on the contract, but details are being negotiated between the parties.

PCSO Sgt. Pat Ramirez Before the contract can be approved by the Town Council, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors will need to vote to approve entering the contract. The Board is expected to have a workshop concerning the

contract on Wednesday, Jun. 12 at 9 a.m. Residents who wish to share their concerns can contact members of the Board of Supervisors prior to the work session via email or telephone.

Panthers represent Copper Corridor at AzBCA All-Star Game By Andrew Luberda A total of 11 players and coaches from the Copper Area were selected to participate in the AZ Baseball Coaches Association Div. IV AllStar Game. The Superior Panthers were represented

by two players on the South team. Outfielders Louis Fuentes and Mario Padilla participated in the contest. Fuentes is the Panthers’ Male Athlete of the Year. Padilla is a three-sport star at Superior High School.

CVRMC achieves immunization distinction In January, the Arizona Partners Against Pertussis (APAP) and the March of Dimes Arizona Chapter, challenged health care facilities to protect their patients from pertussis by achieving 100% Tdap immunization in their workplace. Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center has achieved 100% immunization and has set a precedence for their patients and encourages them to “cocoon” their babies with a pertussis free community. Pictured is Penni Padgett, CVRMC Employee Health RN and Informatics Specialist.

The game was played on Saturday, June 1, 2013, at Surprise Baseball Stadium, the spring training home of the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals. Despite a strong showing by the South team, the North team won, 14 – 5.

Bedford suggests creating projects centered on these interests. For example, if you both like sci-fi movies, creative dads can make a Martian Door Decal -- a custom created sticker for the bedroom door. Or try making an Alien Abduction Mobile, which is a flying saucer made from household products. You can find these ideas and more in Bedford’s new book, “Made By Dad.” Homework Help Most dads can help their children answer a math problem or name the capital of France. But to really teach them, try using projects such as the Spaghetti and Marshmallow Eiffel Tower, the Slingshot Car Launcher or the Balloon Ballast Balancing Act. These are

Transform the Ordinary There are many ways dads and kids can turn simple household materials into unexpected fun projects, points out Bedford in “Made By Dad.” Fathers and their children can try some great ideas to work on together, such as the Frankenstein Fling, which is a game created from a paper cup and a stirring stick, or the Target Place Mat, which will make eating neatly a blast with just some cardboard and poster paint. These projects and other great

activities can be found in the book and online at More information about Bedford’s book is available at Show Mom Some Love, Too The best dads also teach their children to show appreciation to those around them -- namely to their mothers! Create Pop-Up Roses or Mommy Rewards coupons for her to redeem for everything from breakfast in bed to a big hug. And of course, these could work great for dad too!

SUSD negotiating with new superintendent By Mila Besich Lira After three months of traversing the steps of the hiring process, the Superior Unified School Board has voted to enter into negotiations with Patrick O’Donnell to be the new District Superintendent and John F. Kennedy Elementary School Principal. O’Donnell has been the sole district administrator for the Bowie Unified School District, which is a small district in Cochise County. The Superior School Board has been working

with the Arizona School Board Association on the hiring process. ASBA’s services have included posting and advertising the position, collecting the applicant information and presenting all of the candidates to the board, assisting with the interview process and ensured that the selection process was handled legally. The services from ASBA will also include a workshop for the board and new superintendent to develop goals and assist with the transition. In total there were 18

candidates who applied for the position. All applications were reviewed by the board in an executive session in May. The top four candidates were interviewed on Saturday, June 1, in an executive session meeting.

Following the executive session the board met in open public session and voted to enter into contract negotiations with O’Donnell. O’Donnell has agreed to enter into negotiations with the district. The final
