Letter to the Editor: Arizona ranks number one in cuts to education Dear Editor, Last week, a national report revealed some troubling news about education in Arizona. According to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, Arizona has reduced per-pupil funding to K-12 schools by 22 percent. As a result, Arizona ranks number one

in making the deepest cuts to education in the entire nation. This is no surprise to parents and teachers. Politicians at the State Capitol have consistently cut funding for our children and their votes have put Arizona at the bottom in education. This not how we value our

students and this is not how we attract quality jobs to Arizona. As a father of three children, education was important in my household. As a Legislator, it was a priority in the State House. That’s why I helped passed all-day Kindergarten and voted to invest in our state universities for research. Four years later, the Republican-controlled legislature eliminated allday Kindergarten, raised state tuition and gave tax breaks to billion dollar companies. We cannot stand by and let Arizona’s children be short-changed by

shortsighted leaders. Despite these numbers, I am optimistic about Arizona’s future. In order to re-build our economy, we must invest in education. We need to educate our future nurses, teachers, and engineers. Expand community colleges to re-train workers. I want to see the label, “MADE IN ARIZONA” again. Arizona has ranked last for too long. Sincerely, /s/Ernest Bustamante Former Arizona State Representative Mammoth, AZ

It was reported that the victim Manuelito Gomez originally had the gun however after further investigation the Superior Police Department found that the gun was taken by the shooter Julio Velasquez from the vehicle of JJ Tellez. Tellez is the registered owner of the gun. The incident remains under investigation. The Sun apologizes for the misinformation; we work closely with the SPD to keep the community aware of these situations in a timely and accurate fashion.

November general election contest preview By Chase Kamp Copper Area News As the primary season concludes, the County general election races are slowly setting in for November. At press time, election officials released unofficial tallies but were still counting provisional and mail-in ballots. One race in particular hinges on these additional votes. In the District 2 Republican Supervisor race, Maricopa Mayor Anthony Smith led Nancy Discher by only 43 votes, with Fred Mackenzie a close third. Discher showed a slim lead after an initial round of results was posted on the County elections website, but Smith overtook her in the latest numbers. The Republican winner will face unchallenged Democrat Henry Wade. District 4 consists of SaddleBrooke, Arizona City and Maricopa. In the race for Sheriff,

incumbent Paul Babeu clinched the Republican nod over challengers Tom Bearup, Jack McClaren and Derek Arnson. He will face Democratic challenger Kevin Taylor, a Maricopa resident and owner of a private security firm, and independent candidate Ty Morgan, a career lawman and PCSO Sergeant. Former Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick defeated challenger Wenona Baldenegro Benally for the Democratic nomination in Congressional District 1 and will face Republican challenger Jonathan Paton, a former state lawmaker. Kirkpatrick held the old CD-1 seat before she was defeated by Paul Gosar in 2010. CD-1 consists of rural central and eastern Pinal, as well as northern Arizona cities like Show Low and Flagstaff. Gosar won his primary in the new CD-4 and will face. The district contains

northern Pinal cities like Apache Junction and San Tan Valley. In LD-8, Democrats Ernest Bustamante and Emily Verdugo will face off against the Republican incumbent Frank Pratt as well as Republican candidate Thomas T.J. Shope. There are two seats open. Editorial note: In last week’s Copper Area publications, we reported in error that only Bustamante and Pratt would go into the General Election. We regret the error. Pratt is currently the Representative for LD-23 but is running in newly drawn LD-8, which consists of area of Coolidge, Kearny and Mammoth. Bustamante served in the state legislature for two years beginning in 2003. Verdugo and Shope are both new to the state legislature. The County Board of Supervisors was expanded to include five total seats from the previous three.

State law dictated Pinal County to expand to five Supervisors if the populated reached above 200,000. Census results in 2010 showed an estimated County population of 375,000. In District 1, Democratic incumbent and former state legislator Pete Rios will face Republican Gem Cox and independent candidate Alicia Bristow. Current District 3 Supervisor David Snider, a Democrat, will face Republican Stephen Miller and independent Roberto Almaguer. The District 2 Republican primary saw former PCSO Director Cheryl Chase beating out four challengers for a spot on the ticket. Chase will face Democratic write-in candidate Margo Feldmiller. “Feldmiller will be on the November ballot as the Democratic Party nominee for the District #2 Board of Supervisor’s race,” said Elections Director Steve

Kizer. In the northern Pinal District 5, which is made of areas of Apache Junction and Gold Canyon, Republican Todd House

will face unchallenged Democrat Maxine Brown. For County Assessor, Republican Douglas Wolf will face unchallenged Democrat Randy Robbins.

Council approves Resolution facility, annexation committee By Chase Kamp Copper Area News At its regular meeting on Sept. 6, 2012, the Superior city council approved plans for a copper core processing facility for Resolution Copper in an industrial-zoned park just north of U.S. 60 on the west side of the city, most of which is already developed with Resolution buildings. Approval was recommended unanimously by the town’s

planning and zoning commission. The industrial park was designed as an economic engine and Mayor Jamie Valenzula asked what kind of revenue potential the facility offered for the city. Richard Heig with Resolution Copper said the land use will not permit fund generation for Superior through retail uses, but its industrial use will create jobs. “They are lifeblood for Council, Page 14

Lest we forget VJ Day

By John Hernandez On Aug. 6, 1945 the Enola Gay dropped the first atomic bomb used in warfare on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Three days later on Aug. 9, 1945 a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. Over 240,000 Japanese mostly civilians died as a result of those two bombs. On Aug.15, 1945 the Emperor of Japan, Hirohito announced that Japan would accept the stipulations in the Potsdam agreement and

surrender unconditionally. Although Aug. 15 is celebrated in other parts of the world as the end of the War in the Pacific, in the United States it is remembered on another day. Sept.2 was Victory over Japan Day also known as Victory in the Pacific Day and VJ Day. VJ Day marks the formal surrender of the Japanese in World War II. A formal ceremony was held in Tokyo Bay, Japan on Sept. 2, 1945 aboard the battleship

USS Missouri. On the Missouri, representatives of the Japanese government signed the surrender ending the war in the Pacific and World War II. This ended a brutal and horrific time in our history. During the War in the Pacific, the Allies suffered a loss of four million soldiers including 106,207 Americans. Over 25 million civilians in allied countries died. The Chinese suffered 17 million of those civilian Hawaii, Page 14

Panthers fall to Gilbert Christian The Panthers faced the Gilbert Christian Knights last Friday in Gilbert. The game was a non conference game meaning it does not count against the Panthers on their journey to state. The Panthers lost 62-14. After a series of fumbles and lost routes it became increasingly difficult for the Panthers to keep the score from creeping up on them. The Knights had some quick footed running backs that broke through Panther defense without any hesitation. Last year the two were matched up and the Panther pummled the Knights. This year it seems the Knights were a totally different team. While the score was not in the Panther’s favor the team still worked hard despite injuries and some tough plays. Louie Fuentes scored two running touchdowns and threw for 191 yards. Recieving those passes were: A. Mendoza 4 for 34 yards, R. Villalobos 7 - 99 yards, M. Padilla 1-23 yards, C. Villalobos 3-30 yards and J. Aguilar 1-5yards. The Panthers rushed for 191 yards and had 31 total tackles. The Panthers will play the Hayden Lobo’s at home on Friday night. The Lobo’s are currently 1-2. Pre-sale tickets are available at the school. Please see related story.

Homecoming parade and football game scheduled for Friday The Superior High School Student council is hosting the annual homecoming activities and parade in preparation for the big game Friday against Hayden. The homecoming parade will begin at 4 p.m. on Main Street. Anyone wishing to join the parade need to sign up in advance at the school by contacting Ms. Joshie or Ms. Ybarra-Juarez. Registration is $15 for a parade entry. All proceeds benefit the SHS student council. Skip the lines for the upcoming homecoming football game by purchasing your tickets in advance at the Superior Jr./Sr. High School Tickets are $4 for adults, $3 students and $2 for seniors 65 and over. Tickets can be purchased from April Ybarra-Juarez at the school office from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2:30-4 p.m. The homecoming game is set for Friday, September 14, at 7 p.m. The Panthers will play the Hayden Lobos.

Reading from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as found in Matthew 5:5, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Our study today is on the word, ‘meek.’ The basic meaning of the Greek word ‘praus,’ is gentle, mild or meek. This word is not just an outward act, it is first of all an inward behavior. Primarily, it is an exercise in our faith toward God. It is how we relate to His actions in our lives, without arguing about it. It deals not only with our actions, but also our re-actions to our total life experiences. It is common to think of the meaning of meekness as weakness. While ‘gentle’ does describe our actions, praus deals with the character of our heart and mind. We see then, that meekness is given to us by the Lord for His purposes in our lives. As experienced in our life, it is the fruit of His power in us. As we put all these ideas

together, from gentleness to power, from outward works to attitudes and character; we get the concept of balance. We must live life in ‘balance,’ not in its extremes. The Lord Jesus Christ gave us this example. From Isaiah 55:7 we see that Jesus went to the cross as a lamb being led to its slaughter. He stood quietly before His accusers in silence and humbleness. Yet, at just the snap of His fingers, He could have summoned 10,000 angels to instantly surround Him with drawn swords. But He did not do that, He went with the plan set in motion by Father God. That shows us meekness and balance at the same time. Those who live their lives in balance with God’s Holy Word and in meekness of spirit are blessed by the Lord. Yes, it takes self-control, discipline and God’s help. Your life of meekness will honor Him and show others how to live in the goodness and grace of our Lord.

Central Arizona Government Director steps down By Chase Kamp Copper Area News Brian Tapp, the Executive Director of Central Arizona Governments (CAG), announced on Aug. 13, 2012, that he would resign from the position effective Sept. 6 to take a position at a Missouri university. Tipp was appointed Executive Director of CAG in 2010. Tapp said in leading the organization he aimed to create a more efficient organization that could expand its breadth and more effectively address the needs of the Counties and members. “One of the issues with CAG traditionally is that it has been so dependent on social services programs, it never really went out to provide the direct services it’s needed to provide to its members,” he said. “When you’re so dependent on doing dayto-day stuff, you’re not aggressive and not pushing forward to new additions and new items,” he added. However, one former director was critical of his methods in office, and some argued that CAG as a whole has not been giving small communities and

rural members a reasonable share of resources and consideration. Tapp and others agreed that new leadership at CAG will arrive at a time of good opportunity, but many invested parties are unsure how the scope and direction of CAG will take shape in the future. Tapp will depart CAG to be the new outreach director for Southeast Missouri State University’s Douglas C. Green Innovation and Entrepreneurship center. “It was a great career opportunity for me and my family,” Tapp said of the move. “I was looking forward to that transition and it’s another opportunity for me to use my skill set the best way I can.” Al Larsen, the Regional Development Director at CAG, has been appointed as interim Director by the group’s executive committee with plans to find a full-time director in the near future. CAG suffered a blow in June when it lost out on a $637,000 grant that would have gone toward workforce investment area

Title 1 youth programs that would provide job training for young workers. Gila County serves as the fiscal agent for that program, as well as the Workforce Investment Board, and the program is required to go out for proposal every two years. Funding was forwarded through CAG for its adult workforce programs, but Central Arizona College was instead granted the ability to administer youth program funding. One former CAG director, who requested anonymity, said it was the first time in decades that CAG was challenged for the grant and lost out to another agency. Having served at the time of the proposal, the former director alleged the grant process was handed over to an inexperienced staff member. “I just don’t know how they’re going to function, losing that much money,” the former director said. Tapp said the application process for the WIA grant was pursued in the usual manner. “We pretty much focused on what we did in the past,” he said.

The former director also said experienced employees were let go and replaced by out-of-state replacements, something they argued goes against the organization’s traditional regionalism. “The leadership was just lacking,” they argued. Tapp disagreed. “You bring in some different ideas and get different perspectives,” he said. “It gets back to the idea of what the expectations are per County and per member entity.” Tapp argued that ideally, CAG should have provided additional services outside of the social services and WIA programs. The loss of the grant might even be a blessing in disguise, he argued. “Maybe there could be a different transition with what’s going on. That’s my personal feeling in my 20 years in the council of government.” Representatives from smaller member entities argue they are getting the short end of the stick when it comes to CAG resources.

whether or not to pay their assessment to CAG, one that all member entities dole out to the organization in exchange for various services and information. “We’re not generating the revenues we used to generate,” Thompson said. “If we’re not getting the service, then we don’t want to pay it.” Thompson said smaller entities were not given enough of a voice in the organization, and weren’t entitled to as many financial benefits. “The administration was dealing mainly with the big boys,” he said. “If you were small, you didn’t get nearly the consideration.” At a Gila County Board of Supervisors meeting in June, Vice-chairman Shirley Dawson criticized

CAG for maintaining an attitude of “we’ve grown big now and we don’t need rural areas.” Florence Mayor Tom Rankin disagreed and called for renewed efforts for the shared goal of prosperity. “I would hope the towns would stay solid together behind CAG,” he said. “CAG can be a viable organization for the two counties if we all work together to make it so.” Tapp said he was optimistic about CAG’s future as the two counties eventually return to growth. “There’s a lot of big issues on the horizon and I think there’s some good opportunities to push it forward by the leadership at the Council,” he said.

Moreno to compete in national counselor contest SFC Abraham B. Moreno, stepson of Mitch Brown of Superior and Superior High School Alumni, is having a great year. Presently assigned with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, Fort Irwin, CA as Regimental Senior Career Counselor, Moreno won the National Training Center and Fort Irwin Career Counselor of the Year Board on August 20th. He will be going on to compete in the U.S. Army Forces

Command (FORSCOM) Career Counselor of the Year Board (CCOYB) on September 25 - 26 on Fort Bragg, NC. “I win the FORSCOM CCOYB, I’ll advance to the Department of the Army Career Counselor of the Year Board in Washington DC. Also, my 20 Year High School reunion is taking place this year.” says SFC Moreno. FORSCOM is the largest command of the United Army and is responsible for preparing conventional

forces in defense of the United States of America, both in foreign and domestic situations. The FORSCOM Career Counselor of the Year Board is composed of the top Career Counselors of each of the 16 major subordinate FORSCOM units of the U.S. Armed Forces Command, all vying to become the FORSCOM Career Counselor of the Year for either the Active or Reserve Component, in a two day competition that

includes a physical fitness test as well as written examinations. After this testing of strength, body and mind, each soldier reports to the selection board, comprised of FORSCOM and other command career counselors, who will judge them on poise, appearance and further test their knowledge. At the end of the second day, the 16 officers gather with their senior NCO sponsors, for the final decision.

United Way of Pinal County announces plans for the fall, 2012 campaign and kickoff event PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. Terry Doolittle, volunteer chair for the Fall, 2012 United Way of Pinal County Campaign, announced his objectives for the upcoming campaign, which will celebrate the results of the fall, 2011 campaign and present awards at the annual Kickoff event on Thurs., Sept. 13, 2012, at 5:30 p.m. at The

Paramount Theatre in downtown Casa Grande. The kickoff event is sponsored by Abbott Nutrition, APS, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and Resort and WalMart Distribution Center. Doolittle, who was chair for last year’s campaign, said he wanted to continue the successful growth of the campaign and his work with

a group of volunteer division teams and staff as they promote Pinal County needs throughout the county. “I am continuing my service as the volunteer chair based on the knowledge I have gained during my six years on the United Way Board,” Doolittle said. “I see this as a way to give back to the Pinal County

communities. Serving as the campaign chair is a privilege and many of my division leaders feel the same way and are continuing in their roles this year also.” The total campaign goal is $605,000, a 10 percent increase over 2011, and is based on the United Way Board’s decision to continue setting aggressive and achievable goals that will better support the priorities of United Way and the needs in Pinal County. This year’s campaign will

focus on the local effort to raise money in and for Pinal County services. “This is a large county with many needs, and funds raised are distributed by the board across the county. In the last campaign, 16 percent of the funds raised were designated by contributors to organizations outside Pinal County, leading me to believe that many are not aware that there is a United Way in Pinal County,” Doolittle said. “This campaign is geared to educate the

public about local needs and services that are provided through the community impact fund following careful review.” The kickoff will officially begin this year’s campaign as well as recognizing top contributors in last year’s campaign and key volunteers. Reservations must be made for the event by Sept. 9 and seating is limited. Make reservations via email at or by calling 520-836-0376.

Game and Fish Reminds Public to Leave Baby Wildlife Alone TUCSON, Ariz. – Another increase in the number of deer fawns reported to be in distress is prompting the Arizona Game and Fish Department to remind the public to leave baby wildlife alone. “There is almost never an occasion when you should remove a baby wild animal

from its natural environment. It is always better to call a wildlife rehabilitator to remove or assess a wild animal than to do it yourself,” said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of Game and Fish in Tucson. “If you’ve already picked up a young animal, please put it back exactly where you found it, or under a

shrub nearby where its mother can find it.” Vega noted that does often leave their fawns lying alone for the entire day while they feed. Because deer can transmit Chronic Wasting Disease to other deer, which is similar to Mad Cow Disease, they should Wildlife, Page 14

Do not release it in a different location; its mother will be unable to find it,” Vega said, adding that if you cannot return it to the wild, the public should call the Arizona Game and Fish Wildlife Center at 623-582-9806 or the Game and Fish Tucson office at 520628-5376 immediately. Similar guidance applies to baby birds, which often fall out of nests. Young birds often spend a few days on or near the

ground while they are learning to fly but are still being fed by their parents. Place a fallen bird in a tree or shrub or on a shaded portion of a roof, out of the way of cats, dogs, and children. If the nest can be reached safely, the bird may be returned to the nest. It’s a myth that bird parents will reject their young if they smell like people. Game and Fish further advises that before you assume an animal is in trouble, wait and watch: young animals are often left alone for hours at a time while their parents gather food. If an animal is shivering, obviously injured, or if its

parents have been killed, then call a wildlife rehabilitator. A list of certified rehabbers may be found at http://www.azgfd. gov/w_c/urban_rehab_relo. shtml Sick animals will often be very lethargic and may sneeze, drool, pant, shiver, or sit ruffled. Injured animals may limp, drag limbs, or have obvious wounds. If the sick or injured animal is a large game animal, such as a deer, javelina, mountain lion, or bear, or a potential danger to handlers, such as a coyote, bobcat, or large bird, call Game and Fish in Tucson or Radio Dispatch at (623) 2367201.
