Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson to perform at Fiestas Patrias By Yolanda Najera-Ewing Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson is the mariachi group providing entertainment for the 2011 Saint Francis of Assisi Fiestas Patrias set for Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17 and 18. Now in their 47th year as a well established mariachi group, Los Changuitos Feos is one of the premiere youth mariachis in the nation. In July of 2010, Los Changuitos placed third in the competition at the Mariachi Spectacular of Albuquerque. Then in November of last year at the Las Cruces International Mariachi Conference, Los Changuitos performed in the special opening of the Conference Concert with one of

the group members having a solo during the concert. Las Estrellitas de Manana (Stars of Tomorrow), a mariachi competition which took place March 2011 and was sponsored by the Elisa Gastellum Memorial Foundation, found Los Changuitos taking first and second place in the competition. Back at home for the April 2011 Tucson International Mariachi Conference and Concert, Los Changuitos were prominently featured and performed together with adult, professional mariachi groups. This mariachi group with a history which encompasses almost five decades, hundreds of student musicians, and two

countries has made its mark in the world of mariachi music. They have been good-will ambassadors throughout the United States and Mexico. Mariachi Los Changuitos Feos is made up of two groups. The first group has been named Apprentice and the second is called Performing. There are currently 16 students in both groups ranging in age from 9 to 18. Each group rehearses twice a week. Rehearsal space is provided without cost by San Miguel High School. The Performing group performs 80 to 100 times each year at community events and special performances. The Apprentice group performs periodically

throughout the year. Los Changuitos is a nonprofit organization, and all fees and earnings go into a special account for student scholarships. Students in the Performing category are eligible to receive college scholarships upon high school graduation. Students can receive scholarships of up to $3,000 per year for up to four years. Since 2006, this non-profit has distributed more than $80,000 in scholarships to former group members. Current scholarship recipients attend the University of Arizona and Pima Community College. During the past five years, 90% of the students who complete Los See Mariachis, Page 3

Congressman Flake visits Superior

Having gotten back into the swing of being back in school, both teachers and students (grades 9-12) from Superior High School took a few hours Thursday afternoon to enjoy a cool dip in the pool…well some of them anyways. Most of the students were hanging out in the shade—maybe they forgot that today was the pool party and had to sit it out? Maybe they were just too cool for any of that playing in the pool shenanigans? Who knows? There was a fair amount of horsing around in the pool. A token few girls playfully said they didn’t want to get in, even though they were dressed for the occasion, so their guy friends capitalized on the moment and threw them in. Plenty of friends tried to mock drown each other, much to the teacher’s dismay. Whether in the pool or out, it definitely seemed like the time was enjoyed by all. (Taylor Sheaffer Ritter photo)

By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter At the request of the auditor, Superior School District has devised a new fee schedule for Community Use of School Facilities Costs. Since many different facilities can be utilized by community members for functions that on their own would not be possible, this system is beneficial for both parties…the school gains funds then put towards improving programs district wide and private entities can

accomplish tasks, projects or programs that without the facilities, would be impossible. There are three different classes for the fee schedule; currently any entity that contributes a minimum amount of $2,500 per school year is subject to waived fees. The different levels of classes include levels I-III and are described as such: • Class I, This class incur no charge due to District Mission Related use and

includes the following: School –sponsored activities; School Clubs; Boy Scouts; Girl Scouts; Little League Programs; Teacher Organizations; P.T.A./ Organizations; Booster Clubs; Superior High School Hall of Fame. • Class II: Community Colleges; Community Concerts; Churches; Recitals; Cultural Organizations; Civic Organizations; Educational

News from the Superior Public Library: Fun Van to visit The Apache Junction Public Library “Fun Van” is getting ready to roll this way once again! The Fun Van staff is gearing up to bring our community some great programs that will benefit the local community. The Fun Van is a program funded through First Things First. The

purpose is to promote literacy in children ages 0-5, by promoting and using the curriculum, Parents as Teachers. It is our desire that parents develop an understanding that they are their children’s first and most important teachers. Many parents today, for a variety of reasons, lack the skills needed to interact

effectively with their children. We hope to show them that it is not difficult to develop literacy in their homes. It just takes a little creativity and encouragement. That is what we want to bring to them. Some encouragement and ideas for things they can do with their little ones at home.


• Gymnasium/Secondary* – $50 per hour; $60 per hour • Cafeteria/Multipurpose – $100 per hour; $120 per hour • Football Field without Lights – $20 per hour; $30 per hour • Football Field with Lights – $40 per hour; $50 per hour • Outdoor Playing Fields – $20 per hour; $40 per hour *Please note that gymnasiums are only available for (and are expected to be used for) activities pertinent to their use. At all functions, there will be an additional fee of $25 per hour for school personnel who are required to be present for any function. Additionally, there will be a fee of $25 per hour to be charged for cleanup of

building and/or grounds when excess litter results from any function with a mandatory base fee of $25 for cleanup of any event. So, if you have an event and take the time to spic and span the place back to the level you found it at, the base fee of $25 will be charged; or if you throw of huge gala event and decided you’re too tired to cleanup…the cleanup fee might be considerably higher. When everything is said and done, hiring school property to hold a function, showcase a recital or give a class is a great opportunity to take that money and put it back into the school system; in a way you could think of it like a donation or contribution for the betterment of the children of this community. For more information on utilizing Superior School District Facilities, please contact the main office at 520-689-3000.

Continued from Page 1 Olga Fernandez (689-2474) is once again conducting a silent auction. She is accepting any and all donations and noted that baskets filled with personal body cleansing products are very popular. A variety of fine crystal will be on display in the crystal booth which is sponsoring a pastry bingo at Saint Mary’s Center on Sunday, Aug. 21, starting at 1 p.m. Funds raised at the bingo will be used to purchase various crystal items according to booth chairperson Sonia Estatico. Ruby Cervantes (689-2250), parish secretary, is in charge of all ticket sales on the fiesta grounds. Marcela Garcia (480820-2077) working with the fiesta queen candidates.

Danny and Roberta Contreras (529-827-0493) are chairing the soft drinks booth.

Mike and Kathy Zavala (6895629) will be overseeing the sale of hamburgers and hot dogs. The taquitos and Indian Fry Bread booth is being chaired by Chris and Tony Martinez.


Continued from Page 1 Changuitos Feos program attend college. All of this began in 1964 when a young Irish-American Catholic priest and jazz pianist named Charles Rourke was searching for a way to keep the boys of his parish occupied during the summer. It was at this time that he became acquainted with Mexican folk music known as “mariachi.” Soon, Father Charles Rourke’s summer project ended up being Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson, the first Mariachi Juvenil (Youth Mariachi) in the United States. It was not long before the group was performing and traveling nationally and internationally. Los Changuitos were performing in Guadalajara and Mexico City as well as throughout the U.S. Historical highlights include performances: at Disneyland, at half-time for the first Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, at two presidential inaugurations (Nixon and Clinton) in Washington DC, and at the 2006 International Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Convention in Philadelphia. At the leaving of Father Rourke, the mariachi group continued under the musical direction of Arthur Pepin, a local musician with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Then, in 1977, Joe Mendoza became music director of Los Changuitos, and remained so until 2001. Currently, the mariachi has become incorporated and is a non-profit with one of the music directors being David Gil. The 32nd Annual Saint Francis Fiestas Patrias Committee is very pleased to have been able to acquire this mariachi for the two days of the Fiestas.

The St. Francis Church Knights of Columbus (689-5629) will be taking care of setting up and preparing the fiesta grounds as well as packing up and cleaning of the grounds. The stage decorations are provided by Yolanda Ewing. Lucy Quiroz will be heading the ice cream booth. Olga Lopez and Yolanda Guzman (689-5061) will be in charge of the empanada booth. Linda Lira and family will be manning the sno-cone and nacho booth. Each of these chairpersons is still asking for volunteer help and donations for their booths and activities. Donations of a monetary nature, products, supplies, or labor are much needed and will be very welcomed. These donations are tax deductible and the Fiesta Committee is providing the tax identification number to all those making donations. Proceeds from last year’s Fiestas Patrias made it possible to remodel the Saint Mary’s Center which now presents a new inside, plus new plumbing. In addition, the church was able to purchase and implement new programs for adults and children such as bible study and curriculum. The fiesta proceeds from last year are highly visible. The Annual St. Francis Church Fiestas Patrias have always been more than a fund raiser. The fiestas have been a local tradition for 3 decades and are viewed by its sponsors as a community event for all ages. It is an opportunity to visit with neighbors and friends while enjoying good food and fun activities. “This is a time for all of us to get together and visit with friends we haven’t seen recently, for us to share memories and old times, for us to have some good Mexican cuisine, for our children to have fun and for us to be the close community we have always been,” stressed Fiestas Patrias Chairperson, Steve Lopez as he extended an invitation to all.

Superior Town Government: Who does what? By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter Many questions have been raised recently as to what, exactly, certain positions of the town government have the authority and responsibility to do, whether it be giving someone a raise or signing a contract or calling a special meeting.

There are several situations from which the questions stem, including local protest of the current Town Manager, Melanie Oliver, over her decision to promote Jed Lant to Public Works Director and the process by which she went about this; the lack of an RFP to hire a new

minute taker for the town meetings; the recent recall of Mayor Michael Hing. While some actually see nothing wrong with the aforementioned items, others disagree. This list can become quite extensive as there are many different perspectives for any one issue and beyond that a myriad of things that any citizen could take issue with. To help dispel the wonder surrounding these questions, Town Attorney Chris Wencker took the opportunity at a recent town meeting to discuss the specific duties, responsibilities, powers and authority of the key players: Mayor, Council PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI Members, Town Manager, Town OF SUPERIOR CATHOLIC CHURCH Clerk, Town Attorney and Public 100 Magma Avenue 11 Church Avenue Works Director.

resulting in substantial damage or injury to persons or property in this state …’” A.R.S. § 38-382(1); see also A.R.S. § 38-385. So just as David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has called an emergency session of Parliament following the extensive rioting in London, the Mayor of Superior would have to call an emergency session if Superior was, say, bombed by Argentina. • “The Mayor must serve as a member of any local police pension board, See A.R.S. § 9-913. The Mayor also may be required to serve as a member of any of various other governing boards, or may be required to appoint members to those boards, See, e.g., A.R.S. § 36-1404 (public housing authority).” For example, currently Mayor Hing serves on the Economic Development Committee. • “The Mayor may, at times, be authorized (or even required) to ensure that the laws – including the Town Code – are properly enforced within the Town.” Town Council Wencker continued with his description of duties by discussing that of the town council. “The Town Council is the Town’s legislative governing body. As such, the Council is empowered to adopt legislation (ordinances and resolutions) governing the Town, and to exercise most of the Town’s powers by simple majority vote, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(28), (29); T.C. § 2-1-2. Primarily, the Town Council controls the Town’s finances and property, See A.R.S. § 9-240(A). The Council’s authority also includes, at times, the exercise of powers that might be considered to properly belong to one of the other branches of the Town’s government – for example, the Council may authorize an acting mayor to execute a document that the Mayor fails or refuses to execute for more than five consecutive days, See T.C. § 2-2-6,” he said. Additionally, the Town Council’s authority includes, among other things, the following powers: • “To erect, purchase or lease necessary buildings, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(1).” This would

correspond to the purchase of the Roosevelt school property. • “To exercise exclusive control over the streets, alleys, avenues and sidewalks of the town and to give and change the names thereof. A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(3)(a).” • “To erect and maintain bridges, culverts, sidewalks and crossways, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(4).” This includes decisions that have been made concerning Magma Avenue. • “To construct and maintain sewers and drains, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B) (5)(a).” • “To provide the town with water, to construct public wells, cisterns and reservoirs in the streets and other public and private places within the town, or beyond the limits thereof, and to supply the same with pumps and conducting pipes or ditches. A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(6).” • “To provide regulations for the prevention and extinguishment of fires. A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(7)(a).” • “To provide for lighting the streets and other public places of the town, and to exclusively regulate and control the laying and repairing of gas pipes and other appurtenances therein, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(8).” • “To establish and regulate cemeteries and burials, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(11).” This pertains to the recent discussion over the raising of cemetery prices for non-local plots. • “To establish and regulate the police of the town, … and to prescribe their powers and duties. A.R.S. § 9-240(B) (12).” An example of this can be seen in recent presentations to the council of how the Superior Police enforce their search warrants. • “To fix the amount of license taxes to be paid by any person, firm, corporation or association for carrying on any business, game or amusement, calling, profession or occupation, and prescribe the method of collection or payment of the same … A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(18).” • “To levy taxes, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(26).” • “To apply any surplus money in the treasury of the town to the extinguishment of the debt of the town, or to provide a sinking fund for that purpose, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B) (27).”

Town Manager/Town Clerk From here the discussion went to the duties, responsibilities, powers and authority of the Town Manager and Town Clerk, a point which has been much contested lately. Wencker thoroughly canvassed this position, stating, “A town manager is not required for an Arizona town, see A.R.S. § 9-303, though many towns have them. In many towns, as in Superior, the offices of Town Manager and Town Clerk are held by the same person. A town manager possesses whatever powers and duties are given to the office by the council that creates it, See A.R.S. § 9-303(B). In Superior, the Town Manager is ‘the administrative head of the government of the Town under the direction and control of the Council’ T.C. § 3-2-1(A). As such, the Town Manager is tasked with implementing and carrying out the policies adopted by the Town Council. The Town Manager is expected to manage the specific details of the Town’s business affairs, see T.C. § 3-2-1(F), leaving the Town Council free to make policy decisions.” The Town Manager’s specific duties and powers include: • “The responsibility to ensure that all laws and ordinances are properly enforced within the Town, and to ensure that all franchises, contracts, permits, and licenses are obeyed, See T.C. § 3-2-1(A)(1).” For instance, the purchasing of business licenses within Superior. • “Managerial authority over all department heads and subordinate employees, other than those who report directly to the Town Council, See T.C. § 3-2-1(A)(2), (3).” The Public Works Director is included in the positions that report to the Town Manager. • “Attendance at all Town Council meetings, and recommendation of courses of action to the Town Council, See T.C. §3-2-1(A)(4), (5).” As the Town Council is not involved in the day-to-day operation of the town, the Town Manager is best equipped to answer questions pertaining to daily operations and give suggestion based off experience. • “The responsibility to prepare and maintain financial reports and a proposed budget, and to oversee the Town’s expenditures for compliance with the law, See T.C. §3-2-1(A) (6), (7), (8).” It is under the Town Manager’s purview that financial reporting is maintained, thus See Definitions, Page 5

Continued from Page 4 providing the information necessary to create the new budget. • “The duty to investigate any complaints related to any of the Town’s business affairs, employees, or officers, See T.C. § 3-2-1(A)(9).” As with any business, it would be left with the manager or the business to investigate a complaint either filled within the company or against it. Wencker continued, explaining the duties and responsibilities of the Town Clerk, a position also held by Town Manager Melanie Oliver, who is currently on sick leave. M “Unlike the office of town manager,” Wencker said, “every Arizona town must have a town clerk, See A.R.S. §§ 9-202, 9-237.” With Oliver on sick leave, the question has been raised as to whether their actually a Town Clerk currently in Superior, along with whether or not the Town Council now must appoint one. Wencker carried on, clarifying, “A clerk’s primary function is to act as a town’s treasurer, See A.R.S. § 9-238(A); T.C. § 3-2-2(F). The other duties of a town clerk are established by the town’s council, See A.R.S. § 9-239(A); T.C. § 3-2-2(J).” In Superior, the Town Clerk’s duties include: • “The responsibility to maintain true and accurate records of all of the Town’s business and activities, and to make them available for public inspection, See, e.g., A.R.S. §§ 9-252, 9-253(B), 9-511.01(A)(1); T.C. § 3-22(A), (B).” This duty having been questioned recently with Superior behind on several financial audits. • “The responsibility to compile and maintain monthly reports of the Town’s activities as directed by the Town Council, See T.C. § 3-2-2(C).” • “The responsibility to prepare and ensure the accuracy of minutes of all Town Council meetings, and to maintain and publish records of all ordinances, resolutions, budgets, and notices adopted by the Town Council, See A.R.S. §§ 9-234(B), 9-802, 9-813; T.C. § 3-2-2(D), (E).” • “The duties of the Town’s elections official, as required by statute, See A.R.S. § 9-821; T.C. § 3-2-2(G).” With an upcoming recall election and seemingly no acting Town Clerk, this has been a point of contention recently. • “The issuance of licenses and collection of fees therefor, See A.R.S. § 9-240(B)(19); T.C. § 3-2-2(H).” • “Acting as the Town’s purchasing agent, and making purchases for the Town as directed by the Town Council or Town Manager, See T.C. § 3-2-2(I).” He concluded remarks on the Town Clerk stating “Additionally, the Town Clerk may be required to serve as the clerk or secretary of various boards or commissions, See, e.g., A.R.S. § 9-913.” Town Attorney As there have been several recent changes of Town Attorney, who is appointed by the Town Council, Wencker explained his own duties to the Town. “An Arizona town is authorized to hire an attorney to advise and represent it – though it is not required to do so, See A.R.S. §§ 9-237, 9-239(A). Superior has chosen to appoint a Town Attorney, who ‘shall act as the legal counselor and advisor of the Council and other Town officials, and as such shall give his opinion in writing when requested’ T.C. § 3-2-4.” The Town Attorney’s duties include

things that attorneys generally do for their clients, including: • “Drafting, reviewing, and approving as to form deeds, contracts, conveyances, ordinances, resolutions, and other legal instruments when requested. See id.” • “Recommending changes to, or providing legal advice regarding, such documents listed above. See id.” • “Prosecuting and/or defending lawsuits in which the Town is a party or may have an interest. See id. This may include prosecution of criminal violations within the Town’s jurisdiction.” • “Reporting to the Town Council on the status of claims or litigation in which the Town is a party or may have an interest. See id. This may include advice regarding potential or future claims by or against the Town.” Public Works Director As the final description of duties, it is possible that the office of Public Works Director was asked to be discussed to the recent turmoil over the re-creation of this position and the candidate who fills it. “The office of Public Works Director,” Wencker said, “is not one required to be appointed by the Town Council, See A.R.S. § 9-237. In many Arizona towns, the public works director is an employee under the control and guidance of the town engineer, which is a position required to be appointed by the town council. See id. A town engineer is generally tasked with maintenance of ‘the town streets, sewers and water works,’ and must be a ‘competent’ (i.e., certified) engineer in any town with 3,000 or more residents.” This explains that even without a Town Engineer, the position of Public Works Director is not appointed by the Town Council. “In Superior,” he continued, “the Public Works Director reports to the Town Manager. As such, the specific duties of the Public Works Director, and the manner of performing those duties, are under the Town Manager’s control, See T.C. § 3-2-1(A), (F). Most recently, the Public Works Director’s duties have been described as ‘direct[ing] and manag[ing] the functions of the Public Works Department including all municipal infrastructure and the divisions of engineering services, building/ parks/street maintenance, water/ wastewater, equipment mechanical activity, regulatory compliance, solid waste, effluent reuse and building safety/inspections’ (Job Description for Public Works Director). As such, the Public Works Director is responsible for administrative and supervisory control of the functions and employees of the Public Works Department.” This includes the following: • “[T]he immediate control and management of all things pertaining to the Town sewer system …” T.C. § 9-6-1. • “Approval of permits for drilling or geological survey operations that require use of the Town’s roads or streets. See T.C. § 7-6-3(C)(2), (5).” • “Approval of permits for cutting or digging into any of the Town’s roads or streets. See T.C. § 11-5-2. (This section specifically references the Public Works Supervisor or Street Superintendent, but as a function of the Public Works Department, this clearly falls under the Director’s control.)” Following his descriptions, Wencker answered follow-up questions the council had concerning the descriptions.

Tarasiuk joins CVIT Cobre Valley Institute of Technology (CVIT) Superintendent Pete Guzman announces that Beata Tarasiuk has joined the CVIT team. Tarasiuk will be responsible for recruitment and coordination of registration of students. Currently, CVIT offers local high school students career and technical education (CTE) training with their central programs (courses taught on the Gila Pueblo Campus) and CTE courses delivered in local high schools. “Ms. Tarasiuk brings to CVIT experience and a thorough understanding of the importance of CTE programs,” said Guzman. Tarasiuk, who holds an MBA, notes, “CVIT provides an extraordinary opportunity for our students to develop the skills needed or for entry into a highly competitive workforce. Even if a student plans on attending college, they will be better prepared to increase their earning power if they have skills, which will help them secure gainful employment in order to meet the financial commitment for earning a degree. “This is a very exciting time for CVIT because of the innovation and relevant programs offered throughout Gila Community College in our central programs.” Currently, CVIT offers Certified Nursing Assistant, Allied Health Care, Electrical Instrumentation, Renewal Sustainable Energy, and Fire Science as central programs in partnership with the Gila Community College. CVIT serves Globe, Miami, San Carlos, Hayden and Superior High Schools. Tarasiuk’s office is located on the Gila Pueblo Campus of Gila Community College. For more information on career counseling, programs and registration, call Tarasiuk at 425-8481. Classes began Aug. 10, for the central programs.
