Game and Fish offers reward in illegal killing of Mule Deer Doe  MAMMOTH, Ariz. – The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a reward of up to $1,250 reward for information leading to an arrest in connection with the illegal killing of a young mule deer doe found at the Ralph C. Herrera Shooting Range, located on Copper Creek Road east of River Road.   The deer, killed approximately one month ago,  was recovered Thursday behind a berm near the range parking lot.  It was bound with hay bale twine and partially butchered.    “Poachers are not hunters, they are thieves stealing wildlife from the

citizens of Arizona,” said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of Game and Fish in Tucson. “It’s illegal and immoral to kill a doe, and leaving the carcass to waste is disgraceful.”    Individual with information about the case are urged to call Operation Game Thief at 1-800-352-0700, 24-hoursa-day, seven days a week, anonymously if need be, and reference OGT#13002274.

Grandparents Day celebrated at Oracle Ridge By John Hernandez San Manuel Miner In 1978 President Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation naming the first Sunday after Labor Day, “Grandparent’s Day”. The secular holiday’s purpose as cited in the legislation was to “honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer.” It is also a time to recognize seniors and their importance. Grandparents are increasingly important in

their grandchildren’s lives, providing child care and support. In the United States in 2012, 30 percent of children under the age of five whose mothers worked were taken care of on a regular basis by a grandparent. There are also many grandparents raising their grandchildren. On Friday Sept. 6, grandparents and their grandchildren were treated to an ice cream social at Oracle Ridge School. At Ms. Katrina’s class room, the children entertained their grandparents by singing a few songs, Ms. Claudia read the story “Hooray for Grandparent’s Day,” and then everyone enjoyed some ice cream. It was a great way to honor grandparents. See more photos online at

Rabies clinic planned for Sept. 21 in Oracle On Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, Pinal County Animal Care and Control will be holding rabies clinic in Oracle from 9 a.m. to noon, at the sheriff’s substation, 1470 N. Justice Drive. The rabies vaccinations will be $9, cash only. We will be selling county

licenses at these clinics for $15 for altered dogs and $30 for unaltered dogs, cash or check will be accepted. All dogs in Pinal County are required by state law (ARS § 11-1008) to be vaccinated against rabies and licensed. Cats are not required to be vaccinated

against rabies but it is highly recommended. Rabies is a very real and 100 percent deadly disease that affects all mammals including humans. By having your animals vaccinated you can help protect your animals and your families from this disease. Rabies

is often seen in wildlife, especially bats, foxes and skunks. These animals are very common in our county, especially in the more rural areas. If a pet has an interaction with wildlife, a rabies vaccination could be the factor that saves that pets life.

Miners fall to Bobcats 6-13; will face Yellow Jackets next By Frank Smith San Manuel Miner The San Manuel Miners varsity football team hosted Benson on Friday night at Fred Littau Field. The Miners could not hold onto the Bobcats as San Manuel took a tough 6-13 loss dropping them to 0 – 2 on the season. San Manuel had several opportunities and could not capitalize on them late in the game but they did keep battling to the final whistle. In the first quarter, the Miners had the opening drive and punted the ball away after six plays; Benson took over at their own 20 yard line after the Shane Kelly punt. The Bobcats wasted no time, taking their opening drive in for the score – Benson drove down field 80 yards in 10 plays taking 6:18 off the clock. Benson capped off the drive when quarterback Travis Barney called his own number taking the ball up the middle of the Miners defense for the 12 yard touchdown run. The Point After Touchdown kick was good by Blake Rhodes for a 7 – 0 Benson lead with 2:49 left in the first quarter. The Miners went three and out on their next possession to give the ball back to the Bobcats after the punt. San Manuel’s defense shut down the Bobcats offense on a three and out to give the ball back to the Miners after the punt. In the second quarter, the Miners began the drive from their own 31 yard line; on the first play from the line of scrimmage, quarterback Bryan Valdez faked the hand off to running back Shane Kelly and rolled left on a bootleg connecting with a streaking wide

receiver Alvaro Alvarez for the 31 yard touchdown pass. The Miners opted to go for the two point conversion which was stopped by the Benson defense for a 7 – 6 Bobcat lead with 10:24 in the quarter. San Manuel drove 31 yards in one play taking :08 on the drive. On the next possession for the Bobcats, the Miners defense stepped up to shut down the Benson offense with a key quarterback sack from defensive end Anthony Garcia on a third down and 10 to go, the sack dropped the Bobcats back 10 yards and forced the punt on a fourth down and 20 to go. The Miners started off at their own 19 yard line and marched the ball down the Benson 45 yard line in five plays but after a few plays for a loss and quarterback sack – San Manuel was set back forcing the punt after 11 plays. With :20 seconds left before the half, Benson lined up at the Miners 47 yard line after a good return from the Bobcats return man. The first play went for an incomplete pass with the Miners recovering a fumble on the next play as the Bobcats quarterback and running back fumbled the exchange. The Miners set up at the Bobcats 40 yard line with :05 on the clock, the first play went for an incomplete pass and the second play ended in a quarterback sack to take the game into halftime with the score Benson 7 – San Manuel 6. In the third quarter, the Bobcats drove the ball down to the Miners 12 yard line on 11 yards after Benson converted on a fake punt to keep the drive alive. On the 12th play of the drive, once again the quarterback and

the running back fumbled the exchange, giving the ball back to the Miners at their own 12 yard line. San Manuel would go three and out, having to punt the ball away. Benson lined up at the San Manuel 42 yard line. The Miners defense was called off sides on the first play of the Bobcats drive. On the second play of the drive, safety Bryan Valdez dove in front of the Benson pass for the interception at the Miners 26 yard line. The Miners were forced to punt three plays later. In the fourth quarter, this time Benson would capitalize on the drive as they started out at their own 22 yard and marched the ball down field 78 yards in five plays for the score. Once again, quarterback Barney called his own number for the 51 yard touchdown run down the left side of the Miners defense. The PAT kick was no good as the snap was fumbled for a 13 – 6 Benson lead with 10:18 left in the game. The Miners began the next drive from their own 41 yard line but after several losses on each play, San Manuel faced a long fourth down and 27 to go for the first and were forced to put but the snap was fumbled giving the ball back to Benson deep into Miner territory at the 32 yard line. Defensive end Garcia dropped the quarterback for a four yard loss on the first play of the drive, two plays later the Bobcats fumbled the ball and defensive lineman Antonio Montes recovered the ball at the Miners 17 yard line. Both teams would exchange punts and Miners, Page 12

Scoping Meetings Proposed Tailings Storage Facility Ray Mine – Pinal County, Arizona The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District (“Corps”) is hosting two public open house scoping meetings regarding a proposed tailings storage facility that Asarco LLC (“Asarco”) is proposing for the Ray Mine in Pinal County. These meetings will be held on Tuesday evening, September 24, 2013 at the Ray Elementary School cafeteria from 6:00 to 9:00 PM and on Wednesday evening and on September 25, 2013 in the Performing Arts Center at the Apache Junction High School in Apache Junction, Arizona from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The Corps will provide a presentation each evening starting at 7:00 PM. To comply with Corps’ regulations associated with Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, Asarco has submitted an application to the Corps for the proposed tailings storage facility. Because the proposed tailings storage facility will directly impact waters of the U.S., the Corps has decided to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Corps is seeking public comment on Asarco’s plans to construct and operate the proposed tailings storage facility that would impact Ripsey Wash and other ephemeral drainages that are tributary to the Gila River. Asarco has stated that this facility is required to support continued long-term copper mining activities at the Ray Mine. Tailings from the Ray Mine concentrator would be transported via a new tailings pipeline that would cross the Gila River near the current Florence-Kelvin highway bridge. Water would be recycled back to the Ray Mine concentrator from the proposed tailings storage facility. The proposed facility is designed to store approximately 750 million tons of tailings and would have a facility footprint of approximately 2,129 acres once completed. The two public open house meetings will allow interested parties to learn more about Asarco’s plans, the Corps’ regulatory obligations under its 404 permit process, and the plans and schedule for completion of an EIS for the proposed project. The Corps is soliciting public comment on the issues and concerns that should be examined in the forthcoming EIS and requests that any comments on that proposal be submitted in writing to Michael Langley, Senior Project Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District – Arizona Regulatory Branch, 3636 North Central Avenue, Suite 900, Phoenix, Arizona 850121939 or via email at michael.w.langley@ The Corps requests that commenters include their full name, physical address and the project title “Ray Mine Tailings Storage Facility Project” with any comments. The official EIS scoping period closes on Monday, October 28, 2013. Comments should be postmarked or emailed by the close of that date. Michael Langley, the Corps’ project manager, is available to answer questions about the proposed project and the EIS scoping process, including these two public open house scoping meetings, at telephone number 602-2306953. Information for the proposed tailings storage facility is available on the Corps’ website at Missions/Regulatory/ProjectsPrograms. aspx or contact Michael Langley at the Corps at the aforementioned address and telephone number.

We need more volunteers to greet visitors who drop by (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) to see the museum and its displays of historic photos, authentic exhibits, and restored rooms. We also need volunteer tour guides to take visitors “back in time” with the help of our 45-minute room-to-room script. “Volunteering is an act of heroism on a grand scale. And it matters profoundly. It does more than help people beat the odds; it changes the odds.” – President Bill Clinton
