“hometown”, Electra, Texas. He met a pretty little redhead in 1953 and they wed on July 15, 1955, much to the dismay of her family and the great joy of their future children! After their first child was born, economic conditions led Val to seek better employment in the San Manuel mine in 1957. His second and third children were born in San Manuel. His first job with Magma was the plant site bucking room in the lab. He transferred to the mine as a pipefitter. He advanced to the mechanical department and eventually became one of the hoist mechanics achieving the level of journeyman machinist. He retired from Magma in 1991. In the years since retirement, he managed the home, travelled with

his wife and relished his role as “Papa” to his nine grandchildren. Soreo Hospice nurse Rachel Womack will forever be remembered by Val’s family for helping to assure a peaceful transition. Dr. Rosenberg, Janet Bruce (APRN), and the nurses and staff of Arizona Oncology who guided Val along his journey will also be in their thoughts. On Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 a memorial service will be held at the Community Presbyterian Church in San Manuel at 10 a.m., followed by a celebration of Val’s life at the San Manuel Elks Club. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to the building fund of the Community Presbyterian Church in San Manuel.

Thank you, Unions, for Labor Day By John Hernandez San Manuel Miner Monday was Labor Day. The only government holiday that celebrates the accomplishments of the common man and woman, the American worker. Labor Day was first celebrated as a national holiday on June 28, 1894. It was the result of congress trying to regain the support of American workers after federal troops had been called in to end a strike that resulted in 30 American workers being killed and 57 wounded. This strike was known as the Pullman Strike. In the 1890s the labor movement had become increasingly influential in national politics. It was not easy and many workers had struggled and even sacrificed their lives for the labor movement. That struggle and sacrifice would continue even through today. One of the most notable strikes involving the deaths of union workers and their families occurred in the coal fields of Ludlow, Colo. in 1914. In that strike the United Mine Workers of America protested dangerous working conditions and the rate of pay which was tied into the amount of material mined rather than the work involved. The mining companies

immediately removed the strikers and their families from company housing. The union then set up tent camps for the strikers and families. The National Guard was called in to keep the peace during the strike. The mining companies were allowed to form their own militia. The company guards started a firefight that would result in the deaths of 21 people including two innocent women and 11 children. Three of the dead were militia men. This became known as the Ludlow Massacre. It would lead to what is known as the Colorado Coalfield War considered the ‘deadliest strike in United States history’. The miners retaliated for the massacre after arming themselves. They attacked 10 mines in the area. Between 69 and 199 people died in the gun battles that followed. The strike would eventually end after the union depleted all their funds. The miners did not win anything but many of them would continue to work for worker’s rights. In the 1930s the unions made steady progress thanks to President Roosevelt’s New Deal policies. Many of their gains were lost after World War II and the passing of the Taft-Hartley Act in 1947 which contained

numerous measures to weaken unions. In 1954 union membership peaked at 35 percent of the work force. Today it is around 12 percent. Union membership in the private sector continues to decrease. Many corporations and conservative politicians typically Republicans have sought to demonize unions and weaken their political influence since the majority of union members tend to vote Democrat. Since 1967 as union numbers dwindled so too has middle class earnings. Before you consider that unions have out lived their purpose as conservative pundits would want the people to believe, remember the struggles of the working man and woman and what the unions have helped to bring to the American worker. A short list follows: Weekends, breaks at work including lunch breaks, paid vacation, sick leave, 8-hour work day and a 40hour week. Other benefits include: Overtime pay. worker’s compensation, unemployment insurance, pensions, work place safety and health regulations, Sexual Harassment Laws and American Disabilities Act, Social Security, minimum wage, military leave, and Civil Rights Act/Title VII (Prohibits Employer Discrimination).

Time for a new start for San Pedro Valley Baptist Church with Pastor Anthony DaCunha by Nina Crowder San Manuel Miner During difficult economic times everyone seems to be hit by financial struggles. Anthony DaCunha and his family are no exception. Pastor DaCunha was living in the Houston, Texas area looking for a stable job for approximately two years. Pastor DaCunha knows of a religious singer that was in Dudleyville for a mission conference. When these people heard that Pastor DaCunha was looking for work, several people at different times informed the Head Deacon at the Dudleyville church that Pastor DaCunha would be perfect. It was amazing to hear that they were referred by different people, all for the same position. Pastor DaCunha has been in the missionary field for around 18 years and has a great deal of experience as well as a wonderful amount of passion for what he does. Pastor DaCunha and Gloria interviewed with

the San Pedro Valley Baptist Church around Easter this year. Pastor DaCunha said, “It felt like it was home, as if we belonged here.” Pastor DaCunha and his wife had to return to Texas to get things in order and everything packed. Both Pastor DaCunha and his wife felt like the new church and job were there new home. They were filled with love, passion and excitement. The Baptist churches are always involved in missionary work some of the missionary work is done in France, Southern California, Ukraine, Cambodia, Portugal and many other areas in the world. Pastor DaCunha has extensive work in Portugal, especially as his father is Portuguese. The church promotes and supports the missionary field. The churches role in the missionary field is to help emotionally, spiritually, personally, and when family needs are in order. The church is supportive and does everything it can to help. Pastor DaCunha and

his wife Gloria have four children, three sons ages 26, 24, 22 and one daughter Joy who is 14. There 24-year-old son is married and just had a child in July, so now they have three boys, one daughter and one granddaughter. They have lived in California for a great period of their lives. They are truly looking forward to the experience of living and working here in Dudleyville for the San Pedro Valley Baptist Church. Pastor DaCunha and his wife Gloria were a pleasure to spend time with. There is love all around them and happiness seemed to fill the room as we talked. Whether you are looking for a change, a new experience in a church setting, new and exciting people to share stories with, or people who care a great deal about you, come see Pastor DaCunha

OWN visits new RV campsite, tours 3C Ranch By John Hernandez San Manuel Miner On Monday, Aug. 12, the Oracle Women’s Network (O.W.N.) paid a visit to the historical 3-C Ranch and the new RV and horse camp site on the back road to Mt. Lemmon. The event, which included a guided tour of both places and a lunch provided by the Oracle Market, was organized by O.W.N. to familiarize members about the area and businesses that are available around Oracle so they can be promoted. O.W.N. is an organization made up of local business women that have taken it upon themselves to promote Oracle and local businesses in the surrounding areas. They currently operate the Oracle Visitors Center. A tour of both the 3-C and HCR-AZ at the 3-C Ranch camp was provided by Brandon Luthy, owner of the Dry River Trading Company. Brandon showed everyone the rentals available at the 3-C Ranch such as the Nixon House, a cottage

containing two suites where President Richard Nixon once stayed. The 3-C Ranch is also a great venue for weddings, reunions and other events. The HCR-AZ is a new

horse camp located right next to the 3-C Ranch on Mt. Lemmon Road. Hay Creek Ranch Arizona has 12 full service RV spaces that are 40 by 120 pullthru sites with hookups

for electricity, water and sewer. There are also areas available for dry camping. The horse camp also has three tack rooms, 26 horse stalls with half of them covered, a 12x24 covered

corral, hay feeders, water tanks and an arena. A club house is nearly completed that has a kitchen, fireplace, and two full bathrooms with showers. There are many horse

trails in the area including the Arizona Trail. Oracle Women’s Network plans on having another tour to the area which will be open to the public sometime in the near future.

making some noise! The football team hosted the High Desert Tigers from Globe on Tuesday Aug. 27 in front of a sold out, packed, standing room only stadium! The numbers on the field told us we had a mountain to climb, with the Tigers having 35 players against our Cougars who were suiting up just 13 players. Thankfully the game is played with only 11 on each side of the gridiron and that leveled the playing field. On the Cougars opening drive they scored with ease in what seemed to be maybe just good luck. Then it was the Cougar defenses turn, and step it up they did, stopping the Tigers in their tracks. Good luck means it happens once in a while, well the Cougars showed it

wasn’t luck, and instead it was something called hard work and skill! That was the way the game went with our players showing the heart and discipline of Cougar Pride and taking it to the visitors with a 28-8 victory. Go Cougars! The volleyball teams had their first game with rival San Manuel on Wednesday, Aug. 28 in Miner country. No home court feeling there, however when you have

thousands of Lady Cougars fans come down from Oracle and fill the rafters, home court advantage is gone! The seventh grade team played with young tenacity through three sets only to lose in the last set by two points, These student athletes showed their potential and we will look forward to many more good games. The eighth grade game gave the fans what they paid good money to see! Exciting,

exhilarating, elating, enlivening, ear deafening, good volleyball! Our team put together rally after rally to take the game into a third set in which determination, discipline and teamwork prevailed with our girls taking a 2-point victory of the challenging Miners. Good memories were had by all but it’s only just begun. Check out all the sports schedules on our school website!

Miners shutout by high flying Eagles 0-34 By Frank Smith San Manuel Miner The San Manuel Miners varsity football team hosted their season opener against the high flying offense of the Thatcher Eagles, as the Miners came out in the hole with the Eagles posting the shutout win 34 – 0. The Miners did all they could do to keep the Eagles grounded but the size and the numbers Thatcher presented wore San Manuel down as the game continued. Thatcher is a highly touted team in their respective division with the anticipation of going deep into the playoffs this year and in the years to come as the Eagles only have three seniors on this year’s squad. In the first quarter, the Miners’ defense held the Eagles scoreless. The Miners’ offense had an opportunity to score late in the quarter on their second possession of the game as they marched the ball down to the Eagles 28 yard line but the Miners moved themselves out of scoring position back to their own 29 yard line after a high snap on a punt, where Thatcher would take advantage of the short field. In the second quarter, the Eagles lined up at the Miners’ 29 yard line and scored four plays later as quarterback Heath Motes connected with wide receiver Jeff Shumway on a 22 yard pass into the end zone with kicker Brad Ferrin splitting the uprights for a 7 – 0 lead with 11:31 on the clock in the second quarter. Thatcher would score again in the quarter,

when the Miners again could not get a good punt off giving the Eagles good field position at the 50 yard line. The Eagles marched the ball in eight plays later with quarterback Motes calling his own number and running the ball up the middle of the Miner defense for a 10 yard touchdown. Ferrin’s kick was good for a 14 – 0 lead with 2:46 left in the first half. The Eagles were not done scoring as they would put some more points on the scoreboard just before the half ended. The Miners lined up for another punt that was blocked and returned to the Miners 20 yard line where on the first play from the line of scrimmage, Motes would score on a 20 yard scamper into the end zone. The extra point kick by Ferrin was good for a 21 – 0 score with :19 left in the second quarter. The Miners would get the ball and take a knee – going into the half down 21-0. In the third quarter, the Eagles would take the second half opening drive in for a score eight plays later as Motes again would call his own number – punching it in from the one yard line for the touchdown. The kick by Ferrin was no good for a 27 – 0 score with 6:54 showing on the clock. The Eagles drove 64 yards in eight plays taking 5:10 on the drive. Thatcher would score one last time – late in the fourth quarter as the Miners’ offense could not sustain a drive and were forced to punt. The Eagles took possession at the Miners’ 29 yard

line, with running back Grayson Bryce capping off the drive six plays later on a two yard dive into the end zone for the touchdown. The PAT kick by Ferrin was good for a 34 – 0 lead with 4:09 on the clock. San Manuel kept possession the rest of the fourth quarter to end the game with the loss. Offensively: On the ground; Shane Kelly carried the ball eight times for 18 yards and Ben Quijada had seven carries for nine yards. In the air; Bryan Valdez threw 13 passes and completed six for 77 yards with two interceptions. Receiving: Alvaro Alvarez caught one pass for 30 yards, Shane Kelly caught three passes for 24 yards, and Richard Romo caught two passes for 23 yards. Defensively: Shane Kelly had 11 tackles, one quarterback sack, two tackles for loss, Anthony Garcia had six tackles and one quarter back sack, Jonathan Croci had four tackles and one tackle for loss, and Armando Lopez had four tackles. Head Coach Steve Elmore said, “I am proud of the guys for never giving up, they played till the very end and gave it their all. We made a lot of little mistakes and against a good team like Thatcher, those mistakes will hurt you and they did this game.  We need to rebound and come out ready to play against a tough Benson team on Friday night.”   The Miners will host the Benson Bobcats this Friday night at Littau Field with kick off slated for 6 p.m.

Quail hunting Lions asking for help San Manuel — The San Manuel-Oracle Lions are getting ready for their 51st annual Quail Hunter’s Breakfast from Friday, Oct. 4 to Sunday, Oct. 6. The event will include a drawing at noon on the last day. This year the breakfast will be dedicated to the memory of Lions who have passed away. Tickets will be going on sale, soon. In the meantime, the Lions Club is seeking help to hold the event. The event will raise money for their charity funds, such as purchasing

glasses for individuals in need. Pancake mix, ham, eggs, plates, setups and more are needed to make this event happen. Help the Lions Club help you. “We are having trouble getting what we need to put the event on. We need tables, chairs and a tent, among other things,” said Lion Donald Wright. “We need volunteers to help with the breakfast. Our members are getting old, so we can’t perform the way we used to.” In addition, the Lions Club, which has done

asked her why she didn’t eat any of the fruit; he could see that she wanted to. Eve says she told him that if she were to eat of the fruit that she would die, whatever that meant as she had never seen anything die in her short life. The serpent, she stated, told her she would not die and that God had just lied to her to keep her subservient. She said she wasn’t sure what subservient was but it didn’t sound good. She said that the serpent reached out and touched the bark of the tree and said, “See I didn’t die.” He then plucked a fruit from the tree and gave it to her. After tasting it she realized that it did taste good and she then gave some to her husband, Adam, who was near by. Seeing that she didn’t die, he also took a bite. Adam said it was then that they both realized that Eden, Page 16


By Tony Collins Special to the Miner Adam and Eve, the first couple to live in the subdivision East of Eden, were evicted by their landlord, the great I AM, last month for violating the only rule they had to follow to remain in their utopian garden home. They had resided there since the sixth day of the world. Their garden home was located just East of Eden, and was surrounded by four major rivers, the Pishon, the Euphrates, the Gihon and the Hiddekel. When this reporter asked what happened, Adam, made famous for naming all the animals, was quick to point out that the eviction was not his fault but caused by his wife Eve. He stated that God had told him that they could eat of all the vegetation in the garden except the fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil. He further stated that he told his wife about the restriction, but she continued to pass by the tree daily. Adam, a farmer by trade, admitted that the fruit looked good to eat and wasn’t sure why they couldn’t eat it but maintained his distance anyway. When Eve was asked why she ate of the fruit, she blamed a serpent. She stated that while passing by the tree a serpent was standing near the tree and called to her. She began talking to him though her woman’s intuition told her not to. He

they were naked and promptly hid in the bushes. Adam relates that later in the evening, as God walked through the garden, as was his usual custom, and not seeing Adam He called for him. Adam said he told God that since they were naked, he and Eve had hidden. God asked him how he knew he was naked, and that was when the conversation began to go from bad to worse. Both Eve and Adam agree that had they been honest and open with God and asked his forgiveness instead of playing the blame game that perhaps they could have stayed. However, Adam said he blamed God for giving him Eve, even going so far as to say, “This woman YOU gave me.” Then when God asked Eve about the fruit, she blamed the serpent saying that he had beguiled her. The serpent didn’t have anyone to blame so he just shrugged his shoulders for the last time. God told Adam that his days of easy farming were over and that the ground would be hard to get food out of. For Eve he told her she would have pain in childbirth, which she did not

She wasn’t sure which she disliked the most, pain or Adam as a boss, but she figured the latter. As for the serpent, He took away the serpent’s legs and arms and ability to speak, thus I was unable to get any comments from the serpent. God made him crawl on the ground. God told the snake that the woman’s seed would crush the serpent’s head. They said that God then escorted them from the garden and placed guards at the entrance. When asked how things were going now both said they wished they could take back their decision to disobey. And they both restated their belief that if they had repented instead of making excuses the outcome may have been different. Adam said that what he misses most are the quite talks with God and feels like something inside him curled up and died. Eve also stated she understood

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.

Superior’s Fiesta Car Show promises to be bigger and better By Yolanda Nájera-Ewing Superior Sun “The Fiesta Car Show this year is going to be the biggest so far,” offered Fiesta Chairman Steve Lopez at last Monday evenings Fiesta Committee meeting held at Saint Mary’s Center. The car show along with the parade will kick off this year’s Saint Francis Church annual Fiestas Patrias. The car show will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 with cars lining up on both sides of Main Street in front of the church. Joe and Patti Castaneda have organized and chaired this event since its inception. The car show will honor the memory of Joe Castaneda who recently passed. Many out of state car clubs will be participating in honor of Joe’s memory. The majority of Fiestas Patrias booths will open early in the morning. Food booths

will include menudo, chile and bean burros, pastries, meat empanadas, Indian fry bread, nachos, snow cones, pickles, popcorn and more. There will be flavored drinks, sodas and water. There will also be game booths and booths selling a variety of items. Additionally, there will be a horseshoe tournament held in the parking area just west of the Casita and stage. A giant, five-foot, fluffy panda will be awarded to the lucky individual who wins the give-away being conducted by Stella Castro. She is raising funds for her cake walk at the fiesta. Stella is accepting donations of $1 per ticket or $5 for six tickets. Marcella Garcia is in charge of the Fiesta Queen candidates. There are four: Marisa Loren Estatico, Alessya Joseleen Green, Malaya Angel Martinez and Keana Cruz Torres. The girls

will be riding one of the fiesta parade floats, but with all of their scheduled activities, they are really short on time. They are requesting donations of red, white and green flowers for their float. Anyone willing to help, should contact Marcella at 480-532-0068. The Tameron family and the Guzman family will be decorating the fiesta stage and the surrounding area. All are waiting to see the final product. The Saint Francis Knights of Columbus will be in charge of setting up and cleaning up both days of the fiesta. This is a task that these men have undertaken for almost every year of the 34 years St. Francis has been sponsoring a community fiesta. They need all the help they can get, and ask volunteers to contact the Parish Office at 520-6892250. Once again, the knights are donating to the Fiesta money they have earned throughout the year. Bille Jo Villaverde is acquiring and coordinating the entertainment for the fiesta. She has reported that Dezert Boyz, Ghost, Da Beast of MUMG, and Superiors who own J Rydad will be entertaining the fiesta crowds from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. While Los Implikos, an area band, will start off the evening entertainment by playing from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. They will be followed by Angie Gomez and J. Rydah, Dezert Boyz, Bernadette Munoz, Baile Folklorico Alma de Superior, a talent show, again Los Implikos, El Grito at 11 p.m. and Los Implikos will top off the entertainment for Saturday night. Many donations are still needed. All booths (especially the soda booth, burro booth and cake walk) are still in need of donations. Volunteers will gladly be welcomed.
