My three grown daughters also attended Superior schools and graduated from High School here and they have given me six amazing grandchildren. The reason I want to be the Mayor of Superior is so that I can serve the people in our community and bring a sense of commitment, communication and leadership back to our small government. I want to open up Town Hall and ensure that residents are better informed about town activities and problems. I think we have lost sight of what we are put into office to do—and I want to bring back that sense of leadership, awareness and responsibility.

At this point, the community recognizes there are many problems in the Town: the Cemetery, building inspections, permitting, lack of responsiveness to problems, lack of recreation for youth and poor street conditions, to name a few. And, it appears that these problems are a direct result of the current Mayor making decisions on his own and not sharing information with the Council or the residents/ taxpayers. I want to open up this process to the Council and the residents. I believe that the Mayor and Council together need to take a tough look at the issues and make decisions as a team. I promise as your mayor to facilitate this open process and transparency. The mine is a big player in our community, and we are creating a great partnership with them. I believe that as your Mayor the Council and I can create a more positive interaction between the mine

and the public sector to make this Town a better place for everyone! Today our budget is being balanced on the backs of our taxpayers. My goal is to create additional revenue prospects, capture more money and hold staff accountable to reduce costs and expenses—coming up with creative ways to work within our budget. We need to bring our budget in balance in all areas and stop borrowing from the Highway User Revenue Fund (HURF/Streets and Roads) account to pay other salaries and expenses. This will help us improve health care, create projects and transportation for seniors and plan structured activities for our kids. I want to work on a debt consolidation plan that will help us repay our Municipal Property Corporation bond on the Industrial Park, our Greater Arizona Development Authority loan on the Fire See Mayor, Page 3

No Bull Ranching – more exciting than By Taylor Beard Most jobs have some fairly galvanizing attributes…in fact, I would like to say that all jobs do, depending on the person holding that role. Maybe gardening is not terribly exciting to you or me, however I think back to that suspenseful moment in Dennis the Menace when Walter Matthau’s character is anxiously awaiting the blooming of a flower that

takes something like 50 years to mature and Dennis robs him of what would have, no doubt, been an thrilling minute for a master gardener. What does ranching have to do with gardening? Probably not a lot, yet I illustrate this point to highlight that while a select few might find only a couple of moments in certain jobs exciting, I don’t think I would be out

of line stating that most people would deem several more than a few aspects of ranching exciting. Yes, it is true that, while I did grow up in a ranching family, I did not experience every facet of ranching life. But I did experience my fair share and from that I would reckon that if a ranching employer wanted to “inform” their potential applicants that ‘in this position, you may

find yourself in several situations that raise your heart rate a significant amount’, they would simply be telling the truth. So let me tell you about a few of my ranching “high” points… Once while tagging calves, there was one heifer-calf pairing that was proving more difficult than the norm. This mom was a little more defensive of her calf than most; so Dad told me to “grab the calf and hop in the bed of the truck.” I am not sure what 13-year-old girl can easily “grab” a 90 lb., spastic animal, but apparently I was suited for the job. Cool, right? We can easily isolate the calf and tag it, no big deal. Wrong! Mom was having none of it, went ahead and, in a frighteningly agile manner, heaved her 1700 lb. frame into the back of the truck with me and her calf. I quickly decided to bail on that party. I have been “gingerly” pinned/flattened/forced against a fence by a ton and a half sized Angus bull named Mr. Bishop (he was a big dude). Mr. Bishop was generally a sweet-natured bull, yet I was like a little annoying toothpick to him and he

didn’t really know any better. I don’t really even think he knew I was there for the most part. Though being slim is certainly desirable, that method is just unacceptable. I would have to say that my cousin Chuck, having been kicked in the junk by the tickedoff, soon-to-be-steer he was trying to brand and castrate, would call the experience “stimulating”, at the very least. Hey, Chuck was stealing his “gems” and the steer was just trying to get him to sympathize. It’s definitely a hairraising experience to check on newborn calves and find, all in one season, a calf born without a face, one born with two heads, one with an extra limb, several pairs of twins and a pair of triplets (litters are not the norm)… and my family ranches naturally, with no crazy injections that could have caused this. You find yourself standing there, looking at the faceless/ two-headed calf, logically considering ‘It’s an alien!’ Exhilarating, every one of those moments could be summed up by this one word and that was just a smidgeon of happenings on the ranch. I don’t know many people who would have walked away unfazed from that kind of crazy, but

I am sure they exist. I recently had the extreme pleasure of becoming acquainted with one possible candidate. I have never actually ranched with Dave Ericsson, a local rancher who was honored at this year’s Night of the Cowboy, but from the time I have spent with him, I don’t think it’s easy to get him to blink twice. I get the feeling that he would not come within inches of blanking out and only saying “boo-boo-mooshgoo” for the rest of his life after being thrown through a fence by an angry bull, this being the reaction I would probably have—and even if he did come within inches of this, you would probably never know it since he likely would not have the supreme freak-out that would be my second option. Dave has been ranching his entire life and for more than 15 years, has been doing so at the JI Ranch at Top of the World. Originally hailing from Wyoming, he has run the extreme gamut that ranching represents. I don’t simply mean that he’s had loads of “fun” ranching experiences; since the man takes the whole idea of ranching much further than anyone I have ever known, literally morphing the very idea of

to various area of pasture; this can be private open range pasture to BLM Land to National Forest. Depending on the time of the year, you feed them daily when pasture is inaccessible. You bring in the herd several times a year to be “worked”; and by “work” I mean putting them through the chutes to brand, castrate and generally check-up on their well-being, among other things. You move the bulls into the herd for breeding, you work the females to make sure breeding achieved its purpose and then you start the long, cold season of calving, checking on the herd repeatedly throughout the day and night for new,

little bubbs. Now humans are on the short-bus when it comes to gaining mobility, probably behind everything else on the planet…if we, godforbid, were ever in the type of situation where we needed to be tagged and numbered, this could easily be done probably like once a month. Cattle operate a little differently. That newborn calf is up n’ cruisin’ within an hour, if not minutes of being born. So to even have a remote chance of catching a calf, you have to do so early before they get their bearings and even then it’s a pain in the posterior. Oh yeah, calves are cute as heck and you love up on them almost always, but

most especially when they are sucking your fingers in lieu of an utter…but they can be twerps in every sense of the word as well. I have literally ridden then entire 45 minute drive from the farm to my house in the back of my father’s truck because I was covered, head to toe, in crap, and Dad just “[felt] that the open air would be good for [me]”. This is the ranching that I, and I

would venture to say most people, know. I thought that was hard core enough, had these grand illusions of just exactly how “rough and tumble” I was because I had ranched in these conditions…and then I met Dave and Jennifer and basically got schooled. If you would like to know just exactly how I was schooled… “tune in” for more next week.

for all

By Yolanda Nájera-Ewing Winners, winners, and more winners were the final highlight of the 32nd Annual St. Francis Church Fiestas Patrias which came to a close Sunday night. Kicking-off the two day event was the Saturday morning parade with Grand Marshals Dora Vasquez, Ernie Villegas, Hilda Bueno and Vera Muñoz. The ladies make up one of the longest standing Catholic Church groups in Superior. They are the ladies of the Altar Society. First place winners in the float category were the Sanchez and Estatico Families who honored the parade theme, “Keeping the Faith,” in red, white and blue. They walked away with the top prize of $150. Second place and $100 went to the Queen’s Float featuring past years’ queens Sabrina Castillo, Jessica Sanchez and Cassandra Perez. In the marching category, Baile Folklorico de Superior took first place and was awarded $150. The Ray-Kearny ROTC marched away with second place and $100. El Mariachi, Andrew Barreras earned third place and $75. The third and final category was that of decorated vehicle. In this category, first place and the $150 went to Karen Murrieta. Second place and $100 went to the 2010 Fiesta Queen, Maribel Castro. And finally, third place and $75 went to this year’s Fiesta Queen, Julissa Garcia. Judges for this event were Lucy Fritz, Gloria Martinez and Trini Apodaca. Parade Chair, Christine Alvarez is grateful for the assistance of the judges and for all the parade entries and to all who participated in her fund raisers which provided for the parade prizes. Top winners of the Third Annual Fiestas Patrias Car Show were: Best of Show Auto to Pearl Hernandez with Phoeniquera Classics and a 1947 Chevy Fleetmaster; Best of Show Truck to Ernie Ortega of Taylor, Arizona and a 1976 Chevy; and last, Best of Show Bike went to Tony Ortega with Rollerz Only of Tombstone, Arizona. Each winner received a plaque and $100.00 cash. Chairpersons of the Car Show, Joe and Patti Castaneda, wanted to particularly thank the Tiempo Car Club from Las Vegas, Nevada for traveling the distance to participate in the Show. The St. Francis Church Youth Organization also conducted a fund raiser with winners announced at the end of the Fiestas Patrias. Funds raised were used to send the youth group on their annual retreat. First place and $500 went to Olga Lopez. Second place and $250 went to Manuel Castillo. First, second, third and fourth place winners respectively for the church giveaway were Richard Robles, Tony V. Solis, Velma Sestiaga and Patsy Maldonado. Prizes were a 19” flat screen television, a boom box with disc player, a champagne basket and a Halloween basket. Last, but not least, were the winners of the St. Francis Parish raffle. The winning tickets were selected by Queen Julissa Garcia. Winning the top prize of $300 was Donna Still. Winner of the second place prize of $150 was Frank Rabago. Third prize of $75 went to Mary Gammon. The prizes came to an end and so did the 32nd Annual Fiesta Patrias of Saint Francis Parish. Fiesta Chairperson, Steve Lopez, and Parish Priest, Father James Aboyi publicly thank all involved in the Fiestas Patrias in any way and also thanked all those who attended. Gratitude was also expressed to the mariachi, Los Changuitos Feos for traveling from Tucson to play at the two day event. As grounds were being cleaned and booths were taken down thoughts on next year’s fiesta were already being discussed. Editor’s Note: The Superior Sun’s thanks go to Yolanda for covering this event so wonderfully for the paper. jrc

Superior spanks Hayden; up next is number one ranked Pima

By John Hernandez The Superior Panthers defeated the Hayden Lobos handily last Friday 53 – 8. Statistics and game highlights were not available at press time. The Superior vs. Gilbert Christian game on Sept. 4, which was cut short by lightning, goes into the record books as a win for Superior. Superior was leading 41 – 14 when the game was stopped. Touchdowns were scored by Chris Grap, Anthony Flores, Martin Granillo, Peter Palacio, Mario Padilla and Louie Fuentes. Mario Padilla led the defense with seven solo tackles and 12 assisted tackles. Chris Grap intercepted a pass and fumble recoveries were made by Matthew Zavala and Martin Granillo. The Panthers travel to Pima this Friday where they will play the undefeated and number one ranked Roughriders. Superior’s defense will be challenged by Pima which averages 206.5 yards rushing and 48 points per game. Offensively the Panthers will have to take advantage of any scoring opportunity as the Roughrider’s defense is only allowing 10.75 points a game. Kick off is at 7 p.m.

Rotary continues honoring students of the month From the Superior Rotary We all read stories about people who judge their success by their wealth. The problem is that material possessions often do not bring happiness, for there is always someone who has more. Most of us, however, want our life to be measured by what we have done. That’s why Rotary’s 1.2 million members world-wide believe that it starts with a commitment to “Service Above Self.” In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you’ll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio. Rotary International celebrated its 100th birthday in 2011. The Superior Rotary Club is the oldest club/ organization here—established in 1929! Over the years, our membership has changed and recently diminished; however our Club still meets weekly at noon in the Los Hermanos

Blue Room for lunch, interactive planning and lively discussion. Rotary’s work with youth dates back to the 1920s, when clubs began participating in Boys’ Week events throughout the world. Here in Superior, Rotary supports youth activities in school and in collaboration with other groups—such as, Optimist and Superior Substance Abuse Coalition. Each month, we are excited to meet the Students of the Month who visit and share their life and school experiences with each other and our Club members. Anna Flores, who is the Jr/Sr High School Counselor and an active Superior Rotary Club member, escorts those who have been chosen by teachers and staff as outstanding students. Since school recently started, Tuesday was the first visit by Students of the Month for the 2011-2012 school year. September Students of the Month listened to the Club members introduce themselves and give a brief

background and history of Rotary. President Roy Chavez congratulated each one and emphasized the importance of education. He urged them to focus on their futures early in their lives so that they would be able to take advantage of many of the programs and opportunities available to them as they progress through high school and go on to higher education. After lunch, the students introduced themselves, gave their family history, their participation in school activities and their plans for the future. Jesse Lopez, a seventh grader, indicated that he was Club member Olga Lopez’s grandson and that he plays on the football team. He doesn’t yet have a clear vision of his plans after high school graduation. Allison Martinez, also a seventh grader, talked about her keen interest in going to school. She has plans to be a veterinarian when she graduates high school. Rachelle Serrano, a 12th grader, provided her focus

Superior Rotary is extremely proud of its historic recognition of Superior youth and will continue to sponsor Students of the Month and

What about the water? Detailed presentation made to council By Mila Lira Every drop of the 450,000 gallons of water that is consumed on a daily basis in Superior travels 23 miles up hill from wells just south west of Florence Junction, Arizona Water Company President William Garfield told members of the Superior Town Council last week. In those 26 miles, he continued, the pipeline also increases in elevation by 1600 feet to the storage tanks in Superior where it is then distributed to customers in Superior. Garfield provided a detailed presentation to the council on how the company provides water to Superior and their service guarantees. He explained that getting the water to Superior is costly because of the infrastructure. However because of Arizona Water Company’s cautious investment policies, they are able to keep costs for the Superior resident reasonable. The presentation showed that the average water bill in Superior has decreased from a peak of $40 per month in 1993;

currently the average bill is about $35. Another of the key components that have kept the water rates from rising dramatically is that infrastructure costs are shared with the customers in Apache Junction, Miami and Superior. With the infrastructure for Superior’s water source being mostly above ground pipe along the Magma Arizona Rail Road, Arizona Water Company has constructed three storage tanks. Together the tanks hold three million gallons of water which in the event the pipeline or pumps are damaged there would be adequate water to supply the customers in Superior. The process for the water to be delivered to customers in the Arizona Water Service area also includes arsenic treatment and a cooling system. Garfield stated that in the area where Superior’s water comes from, arsenic is naturally present and is not there as a result of human actions. He also stated that the water can be 140 degrees in the Summer so the cooling system brings the

water to a consumable level. How is Superior’s Water managed? Superior’s water sources are managed under the Phoenix Active Management Area (AMA). AMA’s are protected areas where water is managed and where providers must develop the rights to drill for water. In the Phoenix AMA, the primary objective is to ensure no more groundwater is being withdrawn than is being annually replaced. With this explanation Garfield explained that in order for any development in the AMA to be built they must be able to prove that they can guarantee that the development will have enough water to sustain the development for 100 years while not depleting the ground water resources of the entire AMA. If ground water is used it must be replaced in the groundwater system. This means that a development in Superior or any of the other communities in the Phoenix AMA would have to prove that their development will have enough water for 100 years and ensure that they are

not taking water away from existing customers. Garfield also confidently expressed that they have planned for Superior’s growth and there is sufficient water resources for future development of Superior. An example of the growth discussed is the proposed development of Superstition Vistas which is being proposed as a megapolitan in the Sun Corridor, the developers will be required to prove they have at least 100 years of water to serve every home, public facility and business in that area. Development and Water, the technical portion of the presentation was primarily focused on the regular water use and how the water is transported to Superior. Garfield touched on the use of Arizona Water Company Water for mining and construction. He explained that Arizona Water Company is not obligated to any of the mines in Arizona and while they provide some construction water for Resolution Copper mainly for dust control and for some office use, they are not negotiating with

Resolution Copper to provide water for the actual mining operations. He stated that the costs for the amount of water needed for mining purposes would be very costly to the operation and additional infrastructure would be needed to provide that type of water services for the mine. He also touched on the Curis mine project which is 12 miles south of the wells that supply Superior’s water explaining that Superior’s water source is not located in the same AMA for the Curis project which is located in the Pinal AMA and would not have any affect on the water sources for Superior. He also explained that Arizona Water does provide water to the Arizona Department of Transportation and other construction projects using metered hydrants. The presentation closed with a few questions and comments from the public and the council. One key suggestion made by Councilman Gutierrez was for the Arizona Water Company to work with the first responders in Superior to work out an emergency plan should there be

an emergency in Superior that would affect the water supply. Garfield explained that they would be more than happy to do that. He shared that when the Rodeo Chedeski Fire affected the Heber/Overgard area, they did not have an adequate joint emergency plan for managing the local water system and that created many problems for firefighters and clean up crews. Members of the Concerned Citizens and Retired Miners Sylvia Barrett and Manuel Ortega shared articles regarding the proposed water use of the Resolution Copper Mine project and provided comments to the council once again affirming their fears that the Resolution Copper Project will jeopardize the water source for Superior. To these comments, Garfield reaffirmed that Arizona Water Company is not in any type of negotiations or discussions with Resolution to provide water for the mining operations and that Superior’s water source would not be in any jeopardy due to this mining project.

Charges against Wilt dismissed in plea agreement By Taylor Beard Several citizens from the community met at the Pinal County Courthouse in Superior to show their interest in the outcome of the trial taking place against Dr. Glen A. Wilt in a civil suit brought by the Town of Superior. Presiding Judge Larry Bravo entered the courtroom to a full house Thursday afternoon to find Wilt absent but represented by his attorney, with acting Town Manager Lou Digiralamo and Town Attorney Chad Niven at the table to represent the Town of Superior. The trial was quite short with the Town of Superior dismissing the five charges they have brought against Wilt without prejudice (meaning that the Town of Superior can re-file these charges at a later date). While this left the vast majority of the audience confused and upset, Chief Digiralamo later explained the purpose of the town’s decision. The Town of Superior entered into a plea agreement with Wilt including the agreement to dismiss the five pending civil actions against him, wherein he agreed to withdraw his request for post-conviction relief on previous charges. As part of the plea, Wilt and the Town of Superior will create a list of his properties that are in need of improvement to comply with town code. the Town of Superior will have the ability to prioritize this list. Following this, they will create a timeline by which Wilt must stick to in bringing his properties in compliance. Chief Digirolamo expressed that due to the nature of the plea, if Wilt defaults on this agreement, the Town of Superior may then re-file the dismissed charges against him. Billy Holmquist who has been one of the chief proponents in support of the Town of Superior bringing Wilt in compliance with town code,

explained the reasoning behind his support. “It’s been an unparalleled disaster on Main Street, he is smothering small towns and is suppressing this town by keeping values low throughout the town,” Holmquist said. Pete Casillas, president of the Superior Chamber of Commerce, explained, “The Chamber of Commerce has been approached by several citizens of Superior to do something about Dr. Wilt due to the lack of action on this subject. We need to act, we need to get serious about the future of the community; this is the lifeblood the community. There is a need for buildings that can become prospering businesses in this town and he is keeping that from becoming a reality. Moving forward with this pertains to economic development, it pertains to quality of life, it pertains to safety and especially to the future and the ability to have a viable community.”
