Animal Care and Control: Heat stress and protecting your pets FLORENCE, AZ – The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for Pinal County through Sunday. While you’re taking steps to keep yourself and your family cool and comfortable, Pinal County Animal Care & Control is reminding you to keep your pets safe, too.   Dehydration and heat stroke are very real concerns for cats and dogs.  Heat affects dogs and cats in a variety of ways.  Dogs don’t sweat through pores on their skin like humans do.  They keep cool primarily by panting.  Both dogs and cats also perspire through their paws but only to a small degree.  Cats will attempt to keep cool by panting or by sprawling out on a shady or cool spot.  • Keep your pets indoors. • Do not walk your dogs on hot pavement.  If it’s too hot for your bare feet, it’s too hot for your pets’ paws. • Pets can get sunburned, just like humans and their ears

and noses can be especially harmed. Keep them out of the sun and provide ample shade when they are outside. • Contact with metal can result in burns – limit contact with chain link fences or fence posts and remove metal collars or chains.  Metal food and water dishes should be used indoors only during the hottest months of the year. • Provide ample supplies of cool water. • Skip the car rides on hot days.  If you have car trouble or undue delays, not only do you have to worry about keeping yourself hydrated and comfortable, you have your pets to worry about also.   “Heat stroke can come on very quickly and some of the worst things you can do is ignore it, douse the animal with the hose or plunge it into cool water.  This can send a distressed animal into shock,” Animal Control Director Kaye Dickson said.  “It is better to provide steady supply of ice chunks and gently pat the animal down with a cool damp towel.  Blood vessels are concentrated in the armpit, groin area and belly so these are places that a cool damp towel can be especially effective in lowering the body temperature.”   Older animals, dogs with short snouts and animals with thick coats are more susceptible to heat stress.  If a distressed pet does not show Pets, Page 11

Forums answer many questions regarding Resolution Copper Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This particular subject has been highly controversial and opposition groups have said that current land exchange legislation will allow the company to avoid the NEPA process. Patty McGrath with Tetra Tech explained how the the NEPA process is used to regulate mining and other development projects. The NEPA looks at a project in a holistic way to determine what affects a project will have on the environment as well as cultural and other socioeconomic concerns. McGrath explained that even if the project is constructed on private land a NEPA will have to be conducted. The NEPA or Environmental Review will need to be conducted because other public lands are near the project or roads, pipelines, or power lines will cross into those public lands, that alone will require the entire project to have a NEPA review regardless of land ownership. McGrath was not fully versed on the Southeast

Arizona Land Exchange bill but was able to explain the NEPA process and share how the company will have to comply with the act. Vickie Peacey the Environmental, Legal and External Affairs manager for Resolution Copper explained to the packed house that once the mine plan of operations was completed it would be submitted to the Forest Service, once the Forest

Service receives the plan, Forest Service officials will determine and initiate the necessary environmental studies needed. Peacey explained that Resolution Copper is expecting to have the Mine Plan of Operations completed later this year. Overall both forums have allowed for ample time for those in attendance to have their questions and concerns addressed and

By Mila Besich Lira Resolution Copper has hosted two community forums to help the public understand the complexities of the pending mining project. The first forum was held on June 12 and shared the economic benefits and impacts that the Resolution Copper project will have on Superior. The presentation was made by Danny Court who is an Economist for the Elliot D. Pollack Company. The company has completed an economic study and has determined that the project will create 1,400 direct jobs with Resolution Copper and 2,700 indirect jobs. These numbers do not include the construction jobs that will be created prior to the mine opening. Court also explained how the project will save the local tax payers by reducing their property taxes to the school district and the county. The second presentation was held on June 26, the topic of this forum was about the National

discussed openly. Resolution has four more community forums scheduled to address other project concerns such as the mining method, water use, tailings management and the land exchange legislation. The meetings are held at the Magma Club, 38 Kumpke Ct., Superior, from 6-8 p.m. The topic schedule includes: • July 10 – Underground Mining and Block Caving Why This Method?

• July 17 – Resolution Water Story - Studies, Impacts and Supply • July 24 – How We Manage Tailings • August 20 – What This Land Exchange Really Means with Rep. Paul Gosar and Rep.

Superior’s Altin Hing earns appointment to U.S. Air Force Prep Academy Recent Bearcats’ graduate Altin-Myka Ong Hing was one of a handful of students included in U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S (AZ04) Service Academy Appointments for the Class of 2017. Altin was nominated and appointed to U.S. Air Force Prep School. Hing told the Copper Basin News in February that the Prep School is a 10-month program he will complete. Upon

successful completion of the program he will subsequently be admitted to the U.S Air Force Academy. Congressman Gosar said in a statement, “These nominees have a proven track record of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom. I am confident they will grow into true leaders at their respected academies.” According to the statement released by

Congressman Gosar, the nominees went through a competitive interview process with Congressman Gosar’s review board, consisting

of Gen. Jim Hunt, Lt. Col. Robert Leech, Col. John Knotts, and 1st Lt. Jim Muhr. The honor of attending a service academy comes

‘Scorp Night’ July 6 at Boyce Thompson Arboretum Rockets’ red glare? How ‘bout the Scorpions’ Green Glow? Boyce Thompson Arboretum offers an Independence Day Weekend alternative Saturday night, July 6, for Sonoran Desert denizens: a chance to learn all about scorpions – and to see them after dark (and in a new light) on a guided walking tour. Mesa photographer and scorpion enthusiast Dave Oberpriller will explain the eerie Gatorade-green fluorescence during an educational slideshow and lecture from 7-8 p.m., and then illuminate the arachnids for guests on a guided walk along Arboretum trails after dark. Summer daily hours of 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. will be extended July 6 for a special evening of afterdark access, a chance to learn about these misunderstood, maligned creatures of the night. The lecture and 8pm guided walk are included with the day’s admission of $10 for adults, $5 ages 5-12. Expecting a crowd, several expert guides will be on hand to divide visitors into smaller groups. Guides include Kelly and Dixie Walterscheid, owners of Scorpionhunter.com on East Presidio Street in Mesa (they’ll offer 25 free Nitepen™ miniflashlights); also Casa Grande educator Wild Man Phil Rakoci, one of the Arboretum’s most popular tour guides. Photographers who’d like to learn the finer points of photographing scorpions are invited to tag along with Scottsdale macrophotographer Paul Landau, whose amazing close-ups reveal hidden worlds of insects and arachnids.

“Scorpions glow an eerie blue-green under ultraviolet (UV) light, which is technically called fluorescence,” said Oberpriller. “Scorpions are present every day as you walk the Arboretum trails, but hiding under rocks and avoiding daylight, they’re seldom seen. Nighttime? Now, that’s a different story -- they come out in force and can be found almost everywhere! Join me at the Arboretum July 6 to learn all about scorpions, their life cycle – and see close-up photos, then after dark we’ll walk along the trails to see them glow by UV light. You’ll have a new appreciation for these venomous, but misunderstood, creatures.” What should visitors bring along on their afterdark excursion? “A small white-light (or, preferably red-light) flashlight, just to keep from tripping while walking after dark or accidentally stepping on a rattlesnake,” said Oberpriller. “And if you don’t already own a UV flashlight, the Arboretum gift shop sells them for $6. And bring your camera, even simple point-N-shoot cameras and cellphone cameras can take great close-up pictures of scorpions glowing that eerie green color. I’ve photographed many of them, and will share tips for successful nocturnal photography during the lecture.” Speaking of which, did you know they give live birth? Or that mama scorpions show their maternal side by carrying their babies on their backs until the little ones able to fend for themselves? The evening also showcases Mesabased ScorpionHunters. com, an innovative family-

owned company that provides UV lights and gear for safely removing and eliminating scorpions around your home -without the use of poisons. The ScorpionHunters will have a limited number of their $20 kits available for purchase that night, too; (read more at shop.

Scorpions glow in the dark when a black light is used. (Photos by Dave Oberpriller) scorpionhunter.com). “If the weather’s calm we should have a great night exploring the gardens of the Arboretum by UV light in search of these glowing, curly-tailed, eight-legged, roach-eating

– and truly amazing – critters,” said Oberpriller. “If skies are clear we’ll also have excellent views of ‘the big scorpion in the sky’ and other Summer constellations. And we’ll stay out as late as the

Arboretum staff will allow us... or until the skunks and javelinas have had enough of our antics and convince us to leave -- who’d argue with one of them?” Read more about Arboretum weekend

nature walks and events at ag.arizona.edu/bta; connect with Oberpriller, ‘Wild Man Phil,’ Walterscheid and other guides (and see a few recent scorpion photos) at facebook.com/ boycethompsonarboretum.

Pastor’s Corner – Refreshing the Spirit By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp Family Life Christian Center In the Gospel of Mark, we read several times of Jesus going off into a lonely place to pray. We also find that He would often take His disciples to an out of the way place, only to find that the crowd had followed Him there. 

One time He went to the beach, only to be followed by such a large crowd, that He had to get into a boat to be safe. The Garden of Gethsemane was a regular place of prayer for Jesus and His disciples. That made it easy for Judas to lead the soldiers there to Jesus.  He knew exactly when and where to find

Him. Why did Jesus have to take a break and get away from everybody? He stated that He only did and said what Father God told Him to say and do.  He used these times to refresh Himself and receive the current assignment from Jehovah God. That is a good lesson for us. We should

have regular times for refreshing our spirit and reconnecting with the Lord. Life can be tough on us at times, so we need that ability to recharge in our spirit and renew our outlook, so that we can move forward in a positive manner.  May the Lord refresh you and multiply His grace upon you.

Great grilling tips to make summer meals sizzle (StatePoint) Now that warmer weather and summer are upon us, grilling season is here again and families are taking meals outside to enjoy the sunshine. While a traditional barbeque is always great, Americans are increasingly adding unique twists to their summer grilling routines. Here are some tips to get creative on your grill with some fresh ideas: Set a Theme If you’re throwing a barbeque, one way to get guests excited is to pick a theme. Great themes should be fun and easy to follow, such as a Hawaiian luau, southern hoedown, or summer beach party. Make food fit the theme and encourage guests to wear themed clothes. Grill More than Meat Burgers, hot dogs and steaks are staples at most cookouts, but the best barbeques don’t limit themselves to just this standard fare. Expand the options and consider adding unique items such as grilled pizza and breads to the menu. Next time you’re deciding on dinner, try grilling a pizza, which is an easy option that the whole family, including kids, will enjoy. Start with fresh pizza dough, such as Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Crust. Roll it out, grill for a golden crisp crust, and top it just the way you want it. Opt for a classic choice like mozzarella and tomatoes, or get innovative with a taco pizza or a BBQ chicken pizza. It’s faster than takeout, done your way and doesn’t leave a mess to clean up.  If you are serving traditional BBQ, go beyond boring buns and try something unique, such as grilling biscuits for your burg-

ers, chicken and hot dogs. For sides, grill fruit to accompany the main course. Pineapples, plums and peaches are delectable when grilled. The natural sugars caramelize with heat. And these fruits are low in calories and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Shake up Dessert Ice cream and frozen yogurt immediately come to mind for barbeques, but did you know you can grill your dessert? Try grilling a pie at your next gettogether. Grilled pie can be the perfect finale to a successful barbeque. All you need is a pie crust, such as Pillsbury refrigerated Pie Crust, and the filling you like. To make an easy grilled strawberry pie, follow this recipe: Grilled Strawberry Pie • Heat grill to around 400 degrees Fahrenheit. • Mix strawberries, sugar and cornstarch; set aside. • Unroll Pillsbury refrigerated Pie Crust. Place in ungreased pie pan. With back of spoon, spread one-fourth cup strawberry preserves evenly on crust. Spoon strawberry mixture on top. Slightly fold crust over filling. • Place second pie pan upside down on grill to make elevated surface. Place pan with pie on top so it is elevated off grill. Cover grill. • Cook 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Remove from grill; cool 10 minutes before serving. Your guests will be awed by this original dessert.
