Los Changuitos Feos celebrates 47 years of tradition and culture; to perform at Fiestas By Yolanda Najera-Ewing Everyone will want to see and hear the internationally famous mariachi, Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson (Tucson’s Ugly Little

Monkeys), at the 32nd Annual Saint Francis of Assisi Church Fiestas Patrias on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17 and 18. Los Changuitos Feos will be providing music

for the 5 p.m. Mass on Saturday, Sept. 17, and for the crowning of the Fiesta Queen which immediately follows the Mass. The well known mariachi will also

Changuitos were selected as the showcase for the 1997 Tucson International Mariachi Conference as well as the showcase for the Las Cruces, New Mexico Mariachi Conference. In 2002, the mariachi group played in a television news spot during the Tucson International Mariachi Conference. This youth mariachi has traveled extensively having chalked up more than 30,000 miles one year. They have traveled by chartered bus, plane and train to points in Mexico, Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno, San Francisco, Chicago, Milwaukee, Dayton, New York, Washington D.C., Houston, Louisville, El Paso, Las Cruces and many more destinations. The group also donates its time and talent to charitable events such as the Cancer Society, the Heart Foundation and schools. Along with the above, their accomplishments include: performances on national television in the United States and Mexico including the CBS special, “The

Mission and the Mariachi,” performances for the presidents of Mexico and the United States, a performance for a three time Nobel Prize nominee, concerts at more than six state universities, a concert with Trini Lopez, opening entertainment for the American Health Congress in Chicago and stage performances with several headliners. In the early 1970s, Los Changuitos Feos cut their first three stereo albums: “Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson,” “The Young Mariachis” and “Fiesta in Tucson.” The mariachi has taken first place twice in the Fiesta de la Placita, an international mariachi contest which included professional mariachi groups from both sides of the border. Changuitos members have graduated to become members of many mariachi groups such as Mariachi Cobre, Sol de Mexico, Mariachi Reyna de Los

provide mariachi music on both Saturday and Sunday evenings. This mariachi group has been invited to Washington, D.C., on a number of occasions including an invitation to perform at the 1997 inauguration for President Bill Clinton. In 1970, Mayor Lew Davis proclaimed June 13 as “Los Changuitos Feos Day” in the city of Tucson. These young musicians have represented Tucson at the National Catholic Youth Organization in Chicago. The group performed for the 1993 Copper Bowl and has performed regularly at Disneyland. They have participated in many mariachi conferences and won several competitions at these events. Los Changuitos Feos were one of the headlined groups at the 1995 Fresno Mariachi Conference. The group placed second in the high school division of the 1996 San Antonio, New Mexico Mariachi Conference. Los

By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter The Town of Superior last week took the next steps to ensure the economic viability of the town for years to come. Mila Lira came before the council asking the Town Council of Superior to move forward with incorporating the Superior Economic Development Committee into a bona-fide incorporated entity. Lira has been consulting with the town on this topic for some time and she spoke passionately on the subject as she addressed the council during the special meeting called to approve the budget. Lira explained the reasonable numbers of the cost included in the actions needed to move ahead with incorporating the EDC, including the amount it would take to become a nonprofit 501(c )(3), along with

people up for failure if you don’t have a plan. That’s my biggest caveat to this whole thing. We can throw as much money in the world at this, but without a really distinct plan and some straight up marching orders, we’re going to have some issues that we have to be able to address as a community, that these are our biggest priorities.” The list should include such projective ideas as children’s development, housing plans, community development, marketing of the area, etc. There is extreme benefit to incorporating an economic development committee for the town of Superior. With the incorporation of the Economic Development Committee, the town would then be able to work with the committee to not only seek funds of such projects like the visitor’s center, but

they could also come to the committee to seek out grants for numerous projects such as children’s programs or renovation of historical properties. With the Superior Economic Corporation, there would now be a lifeline for several distinct parts of the community to work together through under one umbrella… the town could legally work with the school district to accomplish projects through the EDC, “whereas right now the town cannot dictate to the school what they are doing with their budget and the school can’t dictate to the town what they do with their budget,” Lira said. Beyond that, the school district could work with the Chamber and several such similar possibilities. The EDC will simply network with private business,

government authorities, other non-profits and the like to develop a strategic plan and then implement the plan. It is likely the strategic plan will dictate funding needs for multiple entities (such as, the visitor’s center), for which the EDC will network and solicit funds. The EDC would be able to seek grants for multiple purposes and all this work would go towards promoting and improving the vast network of opportunity that is Superior. When the council brought it to vote, Councilman Hank Gutierrez explained his commitment to seeing this through, so he motioned that the town put $20,000 towards the Economic Development Corporation with the first $10,000 being available to the EDC and the second $10,000

See Fiestas, Page 4

Superior Economic Development Corporation given go-ahead for incorporation by Council possible operating budgets under an executive director either on a full time or part time basis. The fees to become a 501(c )(3) come to the total of $5,255, this includes a $3,000 attorney’s fee for filing and creating a five-year plan document, though this amount has the possibility of being donated and covered by a private corporation. The ball park estimate for a full time Executive director is $82,720 with a full time salary of $65,000 and for part time is $62,720 with a salary of $45,000 (the first totals include benefits and matching funds to the Internal Revenue Service). Lira explained that she had recently found out that these estimates on salary were on the higher side of the scale and that this number would certainly come down. In discussing the possibility

of having an executive director, Lira detailed the struggle that the Southern Gila Economic Development Corporation went through in trying to find a solid executive director, part of which being due to the inability to find a director who was truly tied to the area, thus promoting it to the fullest extent from a love of community. “They [the board of directors of the EDC] have to hire someone that is going to fit the identity of Superior,” she stressed. In doing her research for the Economic Development Committee, Lira has been counseled by several successful directors in the area. While she is extremely passionate on seeing this project through, Mila warned, “There has to be a strategic plan because you can set

By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter On Friday, July 29, a handful of students from Superior High School met at the Superior Express Stop to take part in the Mystery Back-to-School Backpack Giveaway. The giveaway had been organized by Rueben Luis Maldonado of the Superior High School Class of ’82, who explained to the students that he had been inspired to help others after he survived a deadly bout of Meningitis. Before handing off the fully loaded, heavy backpacks, Rueben explained how happy he was to have been given the chance to help others and told the students to take this gift and use this positive thing to help others. He told the students that they were enjoying some of their best years and to do the best that they could in school as every opportunity was available to them. The lucky students were Freshmen Autumn Tartwood and Rochelle Veagas, Sophmores Angelic Veagas and Tyler George, and Senior Eric Smith. The students stood with their parents and listened quietly as Maldonado spoke his words of encouragement to them. His message was to always stay positive and help others do the same. Maldonado said a lot of people helped him with this project: Stella and Maggie at Superior High School, Thomas of Miller Lant, Guy Bryant and Stewart at Express Stop, Richard Hing of Save Money Market, Kevin and Friends of Globe, Brad at the Frito Lay Corporation, Hostess Bakery, and all the Express Stop employees. For their help he is most grateful.

instructor and the performing members. Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson is a youth mariachi group whose multiple purposes are to provide creative and wholesome activity for its members, to develop the artistic talent of its members and to instill in its members self esteem and pride in music, language and culture. In addition to the purposes already listed, the mission of this organization is to entertain, to bring joy of spirit to others, and to contribute toward a mutual college scholarship fund. Performing members of the group are eligible for a tuition scholarship upon completing the program and graduating from high school. Money collected for performances is used for the scholarship fund. The Changuitos Board of Directors is proud to report that more than $90,000 has been provided over the last few years for student college education. There are currently seven Changuitos Feos attending a university or college.


of Superior is able to give the start-up fees to the EDC to get going. The rest of the $10,000 will be available after the beginning of the year. The current committee will need to elect a temporary board of directors who will then need to develop articles of incorporation; these items need to be concluded before they apply for non-profit status. Once the EDC has non-profit status, then they will elect a true board of directors who would begin the process of finding an executive director. During Friday’s meeting, the current committee discussed a list of needed actions and a timeline in which to complete these actions, the first of which being three months.

Founded in 1964 by a Tucson Catholic priest, Father Charles Rourke, under the auspices of the All Saints Parish Catholic Youth Organization (CYO), Los Changuistos soon took on the title of the “Ambassadors of Good Will” in Mexico and many cities of the United States. After five years, the mariachi group was reorganized under a Board of Directors with a music director and a chaplain in charge of their formation and their performance schedule. The group reorganized once again and became incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1981. Los Changuitos is comprised of performance members and apprentices. Performance members serve as apprentices before auditioning to become performing members. Auditions are judged by the music director, the music

Cowboys A Plenty! Superior celebrates Night of the Cowboy By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter Following an undeniably hot day…a real gut wrencher of a heat wave…it had become a dark and stormy night; leaving many wondering if the coolers were going to stand up to the intense humidity that was emitting furiously from the clouds above. They didn’t! BUT this did nothing to impact the overall excitement of the evening. The ever enigmatic Tina Gutierrez had worked hard with her co-chair Mike McKee to put on one heck of an event and I know for a fact that I am not the only one around who thinks it was absolutely stellar. The hall was chock full of cowboys an’ cowgirls far and wide who came to party and celebrate the National Day of the Cowboy. Chaps, spurs, Stetsons, Colts and cowboys aplenty, the evening was off like a shot! President of the Superior Chamber of Commerce, Pete Casillas, graciously welcomed guests to the event, which took place in the dance hall at Los Hermanos. Tina worked with a team of several volunteers throughout the night to transform the dance hall into quite the spectacle, a bonafide barn arena complete with hay, a saloon, jail and wanted posters, plastered alongside the many different brands common among ranchers. The place was just about as country as you could get,

right down to the strings of industrial lights hung from the ceiling…I stood there staring at them thinking ‘Hey! We have those hanging in our barn!’ Very astute, Tina is…she never lets the slightest detail escape her wonderful imagination. I would not have been surprised if someone cruised in with a calf on the end of a tether. It was in this wonderful setting, that Todd Nanke, happy brother-inlaw to the honored, stood to give a superb introduction of this year’s honoree, Dave Ericsson. Following Nanke’s introduction, Pete Casillas along with Vice President John Tameron were on hand to award Ericsson for his fantastic efforts as one of the nation’s true cowboys. Following the award presentation, Tameron introduced the documentary that was made to highlight the incredible efforts to which Dave Ericsson had gone as a cowboy. The crowd hushed and watched intrepidly as the film ambled through cattle drives, roundups and daily life. We all got to see firsthand the horrors of trying to round-up wild cattle. The film made the crowd slightly more ravenous for their delicious meal, which echoed the meals of many cowboys of the past, right down to the rice and beans and copious amounts of tender beef. As the crowds sat down to dig in, the dinner entertainment was introduced

by Casillas. Los Romanticos certainly lived up to their name, having specially written two songs about Superior, being passionate about their hometown, many of them traveling from across the state and even from California to play at the event. The group wandered amongst the guests and serenaded the tables as the guests ate, definitely lending a romantic mood to the hall. Having stuffed myself to the brim, I was soon corralled by Sheriff Albo Guzman, as my services were needed to take mug shots – apparently some people hadn’t heeded his warning and actually had the audacity to show up NOT in cowboy boots. The poor mugs had to pay a bail of $5 to the chamber to make it out of that awful place; many of them only to be chided by Kozzi Kozmos the Clown for their little indiscretion. It wasn’t all bad, though. Several made off with a loot of balloon animals and others made off with the even better prizes won during the raffle. Many guests could been seen anxiously scanning their tickets to see if they were lucky enough to win the 50/50. As the evening wore on, the crowds got rowdy, many having been loyal customers of the saloon and all were pleased as a parrot in paradise when Moonshine Mafia took the stage. Soon couples were out two-stepping and sweeping each other across the dance floor to some seriously good country. Love was in the air as couples spun with delight and dipped low in the humid evening air. Whiskey got people out on the dance floor that you would have never thought possible. There was hootin’ an’ hollerin’ at the spritely moves of a few cowboys and whistlin’ at the partners. After such a draw, many needed some air and stepped outside to chat and watch the lightning for a few minutes, only to return ready to slide back out onto the dance floor and show everyone the true meaning of a hoedown. Fun was definitely had by all and more than a few were surprised when it was announced that it was time for the evening to come to an end. Nothing is a better judge of a good evening than time flying by when you’re having fun. The Superior Chamber of Commerce would like to give special thanks to the many sponsors of the event: Tameron Janitorial Services LLC, Los Hermanos, Jade

Grill, Bill and Sue Anderson, Saba’s Western Wear, and the Martin Family. “We want to give a special thanks to all our volunteers and sponsors that helped make this event possible,” Casillas said. “These events are more than just fundraisers, they are part of the Chambers commitment to improve the vitality of our local businesses and community. It brought folks in to connect and reconnect with friends and family to celebrating our local diversity. The benefits of this all go right back into the community! And we are grateful to those who recognize and support these efforts.”
