It’s back to school for Copper Basin students Traffic stop in
Hayden garners Tucson,Valley media attention On Tuesday, Aug. 2, a traffic stop involving Pinal County Supervisor Pete Rios brought great attention to the Hayden Police Department. It was reported that Supervisor Rios was clocked at 57 miles an hour in a 45 miles per hour zone in Hayden. The officer on duty pulled Rios over at his destination, Maria’s Restaurant. The Hayden Police Department reported to other media outlets that the Supervisor refused to produce his driver’s license. In statements made by Supervisor Rios, he explained that he did not see the police officer prior to stopping at his destination and questioned why he needed to provide the license prior to showing the document. The other reports also explain that the Hayden Police Officer called for backup due to Rios not producing the license on his first request and that the officer was physically aggressive during the citation process. The Copper Basin News made attempts via telephone to contact Chief Monty Antcliff at the Hayden Police Department for a statement but the call was never returned. The Hayden Police Department did assist the Tucson media outlet KGUN “9 on Your Side” to report this story. The story was also covered on the 10 p.m. nightly news in the Tucson and Phoenix markets. A letter to the editor from Supervisor Rios regarding this situation is included in this edition of the Copper Basin News.

By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter I love small towns! I simply love them and will extol the many wonderful elements of them for as long as I live. When I wrote the previous article announcing the backto-school drive that was being held by the Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce, I silently wondered how much of a success it would be—not because I doubted the marvelous talents of it executive director, Angela Hillan-Ramirez, but simply because times are tight. The economy is struggling, individual people and families are struggling and until this past Tuesday the country was bracing itself for further economic chaos while several key overfed, overinflated figures in Washington diddled around and performed with the brainpower and maturity of children who have not yet reached kindergarten. In cities, people hear about food/clothing/school supplies drives and it is very easy, in this economy, to glance at the poster, think ‘other people will take care of this’, and move on to the next item on their to-do list. It is sad, but unfortunately many people are really only concerned about themselves. I am in no way asserting that there are not good people who live in cities or that all people who live in cities are morally bereft, yet because there are so many people in cities there is very little personal connection beyond your friends and families and it is easy to think ‘someone else will do this’, since you will likely never meet or get to know the people who would

benefit from your good deeds. This is where my love of small towns come in! In a small town, everyone knows each other and it’s pretty likely that (unfortunately) they also know everyone else’s business, including which families are quite literally scraping by. However, (fortunately) due to the fact that they actually know those families, even if they are feeling the pinch themselves, most still want to do anything they can to help those families. The residents in rural communities band together, like a nice tight hug, to take care of one another and this is a truly beautiful thing. I was pensive during my drive down to Kearny because when I spoke with Angela, she explained that there was a huge line waiting to receive their supplies; it brings one’s mood down significantly to know that there are so many people feeling the severe sting of our economy. Although, when I arrived my mood improved triply, as not only could I see that absolutely enormous amount of supplies that had been donated, I was able to directly see the immense joy that these supplies brought the children to whom they were given. The first two I ran into were an adorably delightful young sister and brother. When I asked them if I could take their picture, they smiled widely and then asked me if I wanted to see what they had in their back packs. “Of course,” I replied excitedly. I didn’t act excited because I was talking to little kids and that’s just what you do – I was truly excited because I remember how stoked I was when I was their age, organizing all of my crayons, pencils, rulers, markers and other school supplies. Since I cannot actually be a kid anymore, I am going to live See Drive, Page 8

Mining Report By Mila Lira Copper prices were volatile over the past two weeks and closed out Monday at $3.82 a pound. Online market analysts attributed the decrease in the Copper commodity to the 14 day labor strikes at the Escondida Mine in Chile. Escondida is the world’s largest copper mine in Chile, it
was reported that the mine may have lost up to 40,000 tons of Copper and this prompted fears that there was a dearth in world supply. Copper Creek Redhawk Resources, Inc. announced that it received conditional approval to list its common shares for trading on

the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”). The conditional approval is subject to receipt of standard documentation. The common shares of the Company are presently listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) as well as the OTCQX. The Company expects that its common shares will commence trading on the TSX on or before September 15th, 2011 (the “Listing Date”), under its current trading symbol “RDK.” The Company will make a further announcement once the TSX has provided the final acceptance of the listing, and issued a bulletin confirming the Listing Date. In the interim, Redhawk’s common shares will remain listed on the TSXV under the symbol “RDK”, and will delist from the TSXV on the Listing Date. Stephen Barley, Managing Director of Redhawk stated: “We are extremely pleased to have received conditional listing approval from the TSX. This graduation is another milestone for the Company and will broaden our access to the equity markets as we continue with the accelerated development of our Copper Creek project.” Curis Mining – Florence Copper Project Curis Resources welcomed the remarks made by Arizona State Governor Jan Brewer in support of the Company’s
flagship Florence Copper project. Governor Brewer made a surprise visit to a Curis Mine supporter event on August 2. More than 70 local business leaders were joined by Governor Jan Brewer and other State, County and Town officials at an evening event in Florence to celebrate the 5 C’s (copper, cattle, citrus, cotton and climate) of Arizona and to rally in support of Florence Copper. As Governor Brewer stated in her remarks, “Copper mining has long been a key industry in Arizona and we need to make sure we continue that tradition. While it’s the responsibility of state government to create an environment ripe for business growth, it’s the responsibility of cities and towns to actively seek and nurture economic development opportunities within their borders. Governor Brewer went on to say, “Every town in America is actively looking for opportunities to bring highpaying jobs to their community, but few get a chance like the Florence Copper Project. I’m grateful for the opportunity to stand together with you tonight in support of such a wonderful economic development opportunity.” Florence Copper is an advanced stage in-situ copper recovery project that is advancing towards an anticipated start of

construction and development in the beginning of 2012. As part of preparing for the first phase of development, Curis has been undertaking a comprehensive community outreach program. This work includes holding a number of open houses, hosting site tours of project facilities every two weeks, establishing community partnerships with key civic and business organizations and building educational partnerships with local schools and community colleges. “We want to be viewed as having a positive and constructive influence in the area and are working hard to establish a number of long term partnerships with community organizations,” said Mr. McPhie. “Estimated to be one of the lowest cost copper mining projects in the world, Florence Copper represents a tremendous opportunity to both advance the practice of how copper is extracted safely and profitably in Arizona and provide multigenerational opportunities to the residents of the area.” Gold Hawk Gold Hawk Resources Inc. announced that the State of Arizona has issued Aquifer Protection Permit No. P-102110 for the proposed Oracle Ridge Copper Mine to its wholly owned subsidiary, Oracle Ridge Mining LLC. The issuance of this
permit is a major achievement in the permitting process for the reactivation of the Oracle Ridge Copper Mine. This permit covers the previous area of historic tailings storage and will need to be amended in accordance with Best Available Demonstrated Control Technology (BADCT) before new tailings deposition can occur. Detailed design work for amending the Aquifer Protection Permit is part of the overall feasibility level design and engineering program currently being conducted by Lyntek Inc., which is nearing completion. BADCT design work includes a fully lined tailings impound designed to zero discharge standards, a storm water diversion system and monitoring wells. The Company intends to employ dry stacked tailings technology to achieve significant water evaporation savings and allow for a rapid, staged reclamation of the site. “This is a major milestone for the Company and a critical step in the re-start of commercial production for the Oracle Ridge Copper Mine,” said Mr. Paul Eagland, Gold Hawk’s Interim CEO. “Our special thanks to Tetra Tech Inc., our primary environmental consultants, for having achieved such a significant goal in a timely matter.”
Letter to the Editor: Traffic stop triggers unnecessary chain of events Editor, Copper Basin News: On Tuesday, Aug. 2, I pulled my truck in to grab lunch at Maria’s in Hayden. When I arrived at the parking lot, a Hayden Police Officer shouted for my attention. He demanded that I produce identification and I asked why. What followed was, in my opinion, a regrettable and entirely unnecessary chain of events. While attempting to produce my driver’s license and also determine what probable
cause the officer had, he took me by the arm and physically pressed me against the hood of his vehicle with moderate force. My wallet and license left my hand and scattered on the hood. With my free arm, I handed the license to the officer. Finally, I was told that he clocked me at 57 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. The officer radioed for assistance and the Police Chief responded. I introduced myself to the Chief. I told him I believed that the physical
contact was unjustified and unnecessary and that I intended to file a complaint against his officer. Not producing a driver’s license on command calls for a class 2 misdemeanor citation, not physical force. I regret that I was speeding. However, I firmly believe that any citizen should get an answer when asked “what is your probable cause, or why do you want to see my ID?” I shouldn’t have had to ask three times and be manhandled. I intend to go to traffic
school and pay my fine for the speeding ticket like any responsible motorist. I appreciate the difficult job that patrol officers have to keep our communities safe but do not condone unwarranted physical contact. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone and that was what I tried to convey to the Chief. Sincerely, /s/ Pete Rios Chairman, Pinal County Board of Supervisors District 1 Supervisor

Local districts welcome new educators to their ranks
By Vicki Clark Although it still seems like summer, school bells rang out throughout the Copper Basin during the past week with classes starting in the Ray District Friday and in the Hayden-Winkelman District Monday. During orientation meetings held before classes began, staff and teachers were welcomed back and teachers new to the districts were introduced. One new teacher, Rick Reed, began duties at H-W and another teacher, Mary Lou Sandoval is re-joining the staff. The Ray District introduced five new teachers including Patricia Bingham, April Jordan, Matt Roseberry, Louis Elvira, and Jake Sullivan. Patricia Bingham, is the new Pre-K teacher in the Ray District. She was born and raised in Kearny and is RHS graduate. She just recently obtained her Bachelors’ of Arts degree in Education from Arizona State
University. She also holds dual certificates in Special Education and Elementary Education. Patti said she chose teaching as a career because “after working as a Special Ed Paraprofessional for 11 years, I decided to complete my education and become a teacher. I really enjoy working with and teaching young children. They are definitely an inspiration and it’s an amazing feeling when something ‘clicks’ and you had something to do with that click.” Her career goals include just to be the best teacher she can be. Patti is married to husband Zane and they have three sons, Zachary, 23, Tyler, 21, and Dustin, 18. Her interests and hobbies include being involved in 4-H for many years and anything her family has interests in at the time, including following the sports and other activities her sons were participating in over the years She also loves going up North
to the family cabin, watching baseball and football and spending time with her family. April Jordan is the new 5-6th Grade Language Arts/Writing teacher in the Ray District. She holds a BS in Business/ Accounting from Jacksonville State University and a MS degree in Education from the University of Phoenix. She chose to teach because “after 15 years as an accounting manager, I found that the only thing I enjoyed about my job was training and teaching new employees, new procedures, etc., so after being laid off at my current job several years ago, I decided to change careers and become a teacher.” April is married to husband Will Jordan, ROTC instructor at RHS. She has two children, Drew, 26 and Rachel, 21. She also has four step-children, Chris, Jenny, Keith and Shawn and one adopted son, Alex. She enjoys volunteering for
her husband’s ROTC program, reading and spending time with her family and friends. Matt Roseberry is taking the helm at the 7-8 grade social studies program at Ray Elementary and he holds a degree from ASU in Secondary Education History. He said he enjoys working with students and is passionate about history and that’s why he chose teaching as a career. “I enjoy teaching social studies, it is rewarding to see a student progress by the end of the school year.” His teaching goals include developing his skills as a teacher and a coach at Ray Elementary. Matt is a big sports fan and follows his favorite NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys, while also keeping tabs on his favorite baseball team, the Atlantic Braves. Louis Elvira is the new Math and Social Studies teacher at RHS. He has a Doctorate of
Divinity from ULC and also earned a M. Ed in Counseling & Human Relations from NAU and a B.A. in Social and Behavioral Science from ASU.
He enjoys working with people and helping them find and develop their interests in life See Teachers, Page 6

Georgie Digs By Georgie Wood (firstname.lastname@example.org) It is certainly interesting to again read all of the early correspondence I have kept that concerns the Nature Conservancy (TNC), the buyer in 1970 of our Wood Brothers Panorama Ranch that was headquartered along lower Aravaipa Creek in Pinal County, Arizona. At that time, TNC believed that their Aravaipa Preserve would require a full-time manager. As I previously wrote, the Defenders of Wildlife (DOW) assumed TNC’s mortgage in 1972, and the Fred and Cliff Wood families continued to oversee the upkeep of the property which was then called “The George Whittel Wildlife Preserve”, with Fred and his wife, Alice, staying there the longest - until the 1983 Aravaipa Creek flood. After Fred had the caretakers, Jerry O’Neil and Glen
Johnson, both teachers at the Aravaipa Branch of Central Arizona College (CAC), there, the Cliff Wood family got involved again. In 1986, my husband, Cliff, and our son, Neal, had each bought four-wheeled Hondas, and they came in really handy when we, with our daughter, Ann, and her husband on some weekends, took over the care of the Panorama Ranch homesite in 1987. That was the year before the George Whittel Wildlife Preserve, managed by DOW, was returned to TNC on May 19, 1988. We were required to have insurance on the place, and all expenses were to be ours. To begin with, there was lots of clean-up work to do. We were to become much busier people, and all because of sentiment. Lots of sentiment for that place where we had lived for so long, and where our children had been

raised. We bought the last caretaker Glen Johnson’s big gas pump in order to irrigate from the creek, but later bought a new one. Also, some large irrigation pipe to lead from the creekside pump to the yard, and a new electric well pump. Lots of work was done on the two houses, and that work included new floor coverings in the dining room and kitchen in “Nana’s” old house, where Fred and Alice had lived; pulling out termite-eaten boards; replacing plywood ceilings that had ringtail droppings on their topsides; and doing lots of inside and outside painting. Because we thought it would be easier to stay there for a few days at a time instead of driving
to and from our downstream home everyday, we bought a small refrigerator, hooked up our butane-run cook stove, moved some of our furniture up there, and bought a small electric heater to help warm up that old house in the winter time. I really enjoyed raking and irrigating the yard with its citrus trees and the bed of violets. We also planted corn and chili in the fields, but the chili was too hot for us and some of our Mexican friends who liked their chili hot! John Luepke of Klondyke was Manager of TNC’s Aravaipa Canyon Preserve, and in 1991 he was replaced by Ed Brunson. Tom and Debbie Collazo had lived about three years on TNC’s Wes-Car Ranch, afterwhich there was no TNC personnel
living on the west-end of Aravaipa Creek. In 1992, the Cliff and Fred Wood families were presented with the Joseph Wood Krutch Award “for their dedication to the protection of Aravaipa Canyon”; this award given by the Arizona Chapter of TNC. It was also in 1992 when we gave up the care of the Panorama Ranch homesites after our big gas pump was stolen. The pump was stolen about the same time when Tony Luebbermann’s dump truck was stolen, although Tony’s truck was stopped at the Arizona-Mexico border where he eventually was able to retrieve it. The ones who stole our pump had to first unbolt it from the base of an old cement mixer that had
wheels on it, and we had it that way so it could be pulled down to the side of the creek when we wanted to irrigate. We never found our pump, but we had our suspicions as to who had stolen it. The work and expense of caring for the ranch homesites was just too much, but giving it up was very difficult. TNC reimbursed us for some expenses, and because TNC wanted to keep the irrigation pipe we had bought, we thought that they would see to the upkeep of the ranch homesites, but that was not to be. The trees and plants gradually dried up, and the two houses and the old bunkhouse were left to deteriorate. We were able to save four violet plants before the bed of violets died.

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona
SCIP leaves some local customers in the dark By Mila Lira Being in the dark has become a way of life in Mammoth and other communities in Eastern Pinal County. There can be some advantages to being in the dark, such as preserving the night sky as part of the rural quality of life that residents of Mammoth and Aravaipa enjoy, candlelit dinners and conversations around fire pits. It is one thing to enjoy being in the dark by choice, conserving electricity as a way of life can be a good thing, turning off the computer or television and opening a good book is relaxing to many as well. If you live in Mammoth or Aravaipa or one the other communities served by the San Carlos Irrigation District (SCIP) you may find yourself forced to enjoy this way of life occasionally. Customers served by SCIP regularly find themselves without electric power. Previous Copper Area News articles have reported that
these power outages were caused by severe weather problems. In 2009 when the SCIP policy handbook was changed many SCIP customers came home to find out their power had been disconnected due to the home’s wiring being outdated or tampered with. These disconnections were done without adequate notice to the home owner. The Copper Basin News has been in contact with many residential and business SCIP customers who have shared their stories of expensive computer equipment destroyed, loss of food, and concerns for health due to the blackouts and power surges, incorrect billing statements and even unannounced rate increases. When customers are faced with these challenges they are often met with rude or demeaning customer service. New SCIP connections or moving services is one of the biggest problems for property managers and real estate professionals in the
Attendance light at SCIP meetings in Aravaipa, Oracle By Mila Lira San Carlos Irrigation and Power customers attended the recent SCIP Public Hearing in Aravaipa and Oracle. The hearing was held as part of the required process to increase the wheeling rates. Representatives from SCIP and K.R. Saline & Associates made the presentation which included an overview of the authority and process for determining rates, an overview of financial results, a summary of changes to the rate schedule, project pumping rate proposal and also included the calculations for the wheeling calculations. Kent Simer from K.R. Saline & Associates gave the presentation and explained that there will be no rate increase for residential or commercial customers. He explained that SCIP did need to increase the cost of the wheeling rates which are the rates that are given to other utility entities that request electricity transmission and distribution through SCIP infrastructure. The Gila River Utility Authority is the primary customer for SCIP wheeling rates. Simer reviewed many of the improvements that have been made over the last 11 years those projects included construction of new transmission lines, the Lone Butte Industrial Park, Rehabilitation of the Coolidge facilities, Catalina substation rebuild, Construction of the Biosphere substation and the new offices for SCIP. The financial overview of SCIP showed that following the crash in the housing market and the overall economy in 2008 SCIP has operated with a negative net income since. To keep rates from increasing SCIP has been using reserve funds to cover the short fall in net income the increase in the wheeling rates will allow SCIP to create a positive net income. Simer explained that SCIP is unable to finance capital investments like the other utilities because federal regulations prohibit them so the negative net income has affected the much needed capital improvements. They are currently working with federal staff at the Office of Budget and Management to possibly have some financing available to improve the infrastructure. In the open discussion the staff at SCIP acknowledged that there are often many outages and explained that many of those outages are due to the fact that they infrastructure to deliver the power is 70 percent depreciated. The customers in attendance complimented the staff for improved
services; one customer explained that he is often surprised how quickly SCIP crews have been out to his neighborhood when the circuit has broken. SCIP staff also explained to the customers at this time it is not financially feasible for the small utilities such as SCIP to offer the energy rebates and net metering that other utilities are able to offer. The hearing in Aravaipa created a positive dialog between customers, SCIP staff and their consultants. Arlan Riggs of SCIP explained that he would be willing to attend meetings of the Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition to make a presentation and he also reported on some of the improvements customers will be seeing in the coming months including a new web based system to review their bills and email staff, a new phone system will also allow for improved phone communications as well as infrastructure improvements at the Hayden substation. Customers who wish to make any formal comments to SCIP regarding the wheeling rate increases can submit written comments until 5:00pm Friday, August 12, 2011. Comments can be mailed to SCIP ATTN: SCIP Rate Process, 13805 North Arizona Boulevard, Coolidge, AZ 85128.
area. SCIP customers who rent homes or who are buying a new home in the area encounter many difficulties in starting new service with SCIP. It is even difficult to have power turned on for required home inspections. Unlike other electric power providers such as Arizona Public Service or Salt River Project there is no online application for service, or toll free number to call for billing problems or outages. New customers often find themselves faxing and refaxing documentation to open their account. Deposits are required for all SCIP customers regardless of credit worthiness and those deposits are often never returned or applied correctly. Why is this particular utility provider allowed to operate under these unpredictable business models? SCIP is Federal Government Corporation and is a Bureau of Indian Affairs Utility. This type of entity does not fall under the jurisdiction of the Arizona Corporation Commission. With other utility companies in the State if a customer encounters these types of problems and does not find resolve through the company itself they can file a complaint with the Corporation Commission. In order for customers in the SCIP service area to have a choice in electric power suppliers or have another company provide these services an act of Congress would be needed for SCIP to divest their asset’s to another company. Lynn Perez-Hewitt resident of Oracle and current President of the Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition spoke with the Copper Basin News. She explained that there have been numerous efforts to try and work with SCIP and the Federal Government but it has been difficult to improve the situation. She stated at one point in the late 90s Congressman Jim Kolbe was instrumental in bringing the issue to Congress and SCIP was receptive to divesting their assets but at the eleventh hour
SCIP pulled out. The board of the Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition (CCEDC) has recognized that until this area of the Copper Corridor has reliable electric service it will be difficult to establish a sustainable economy for the communities in the SCIP service area. Perez-Hewitt explained that the CCEDC will be forming a study group to learn more about SCIP operations and how does a Federal corporation operate. She further explained that once a strong knowledge base was acquired the study group could evolve into a task force. She welcomed anyone who wants to assist with the study group to get involved but cautioned, “It is important that we set aside anger and frustration in order to serve the community.” Mammoth Mayor Craig Williams explained that it is very difficult to promote Mammoth as a place to locate a business or move too because of the issues with the electric utility. He explained that the power outages affect just about all of the town’s departments and functions, when the power goes out there is generator back up power for the Town Hall and Police Department but other departments “have to wait it out” and those who work for the water and waste water treatment departments have to be called out to reset pumps and other mechanisms when the power is out. These power problems have become a way of life for residents and business owners. Cathy Gorman owner of a Navajo Sheep Farm in Aravaipa explained to the Miner that “the service has gotten better, but not better enough.” She explained how she has chosen to purchase special surge protectors for her irrigation system and that when her electricity is off her animals are vulnerable to predators because her electric fence can’t operate. She did explain that overall she enjoys living in the area but would like to see adequate power and internet services available to
residents of the area. The Copper Basin News was able to discuss some of the power outages and customer service related issues with Arlan Riggs the Acting Power Manager and Energy Engineer for SCIP. When asked about the many problems that customers faced with billing and customer service he explained that each issue generally has different circumstances therefore he could not speak specifically to each issue but he did understand that there have been many issues. He did explain that customers who have had damages due to the power surges and outages should call the Coolidge office and begin the Federal Tort Claims process. Riggs further explained that SCIP employs 50 employees and those employees service more than 2,500 square miles of service area. This territory encompasses four counties and the most of the poles and infrastructure are located in unpopulated areas. Generally most power outages and surges are caused by severe weather and occasionally they are caused by equipment
malfunctions. Limited access, distance to the poles and aging infrastructure often delay the power from being turned on quickly. American Revitalization Recovery Act (ARRA) Funds were made available to rural utility providers to improve their infrastructure and services. Officials from SCIP applied for funding but were not awarded any ARRA funds. In today’s electrified lifestyle power is essential, each customer and resident in the Mammoth/Aravaipa area has power to communicate their concerns and potentially be part of the improvements. The Copper Corridor SCIP Study Group is looking for customers to assist with the study group. They need to learn more about how SCIP operates, and what avenues customers have to address concerns. Those interested should contact Lynn Perez-Hewitt via email at email@example.com. Remember if you have experienced any losses due to power outages you do have the right to file a Federal Tort Claim. Call the Coolidge office for additional information 520723-6215.

He is from Hobert, Indiana, and graduated from Purdue with a degree in Math Education. He chose teaching as a career for two reasons. “First,” he said, “because I love math (in a non-nerdy way). I think it’s fun to think about and mess with. And second because I really like to help people out.

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona
Continued from Page 1 vicariously through them as much as possible. I sat on the sidewalk with the two youngin’s as they happily piled out the contents of their new backpacks and methodically showed me each item...so cool! It is undeniably enjoyable to sit with little kids that are ready to rock in school; it’s actually really uplifting. Once I had said goodbye to these two darling children, I walked inside to see the enormous “take” that had resulted from all the gracious donations from the community; it was massive… there were piles of notebooks and pencils and pens and hand sanitizer and glue, scissors and tissues. And more. There was definitely more. It seemed like the whole area had descended upon Angela’s office to drop off piles of school supplies. Over the course of my visit, I was privileged to see several students come and benefit from the good will of others. Angela Hillan-Ramirez and the Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce are very appreciative for the many donors who came together to help students this year: Mark Romo of Bank of the West, Ray Federal Credit Union, ASARCO, Ramon Esquivel and Family, Coppernet Systems, Mayetta Payton, Kearny Health Mart, Dan Sheets, Samantha Misita and Family, Rosalia’s Restaurant, Mary Allen Avelar and family, Cecilia Magallanez, Blanca Avelar, Officer Lopez, Kathy Gonzales, Lora Snow, Dr. Crawford, Particia and Joe Morales and Family, Willian Sandefur, Paul Jennifer Hill, Rag’s Carwash, La Cantina, Judge Orzell and Family, Town of Hayden and Vice Mayor Maria Munoz, Cami Boyd and family, Sellers Family, Town of Kearny, Taylor Ritter, Hillan-Huerta Family, Jeff Ramirez, Connie Hillan, Jay and Norma Cardanes, Ms. Patsy of “Be My Guest” and Manuel and Veva Carillo.
