Self TheDefense Bully, Part 4

It has been said that we only have three choices in life: we may change a situation, we may leave a situation, or we may accept a situation. Sometimes, circumstances beyond our control will dictate which choice is made. We live

with our decision, hopefully learn from it and move on. But children don’t have our life’s experiences to fall back on. Their reference point is just developing and their decisions are often not well thought out. Their choices are, by ne-

cessity more limited than ours. As parents and educators we are obligated to add perspective and guidance to help our children negotiate the difficult journey to adulthood. Not enough time and effort is put toward interpersonal relationship skills. As a Martial Arts Instructor, I have (interestingly enough) had parents bring their children who were meek, intimidated and victimized by bullies, and had parents bring their children who were angry, unruly and who became bullies. In one particular instance, both the bully and the victim attended the same class. The bully

learned that respect and trust is earned. Discipline controlled his aggressive, emotional behavior. Eventually, leadership skills enabled him to help students who were smaller and less advanced than him. The victim also learned that respect and trust are earned. Discipline controlled his timid, overly sensitive nature. Eventually, leadership skills enabled him to help students who were larger and less advanced than him. Much of my success with such students is based on clear, uncompromising, expectations of behavior that leads to responsible character development

Celebrating the Centennial: Arizona-Mexico Border in 1912 By John Hernandez The border with Mexico in the early 1900s was little more than a line drawn in the dirt. There were few immigration restrictions and Mexicans and Americans could cross the border with relative ease. The Border Patrol would be organized in 1904 but their main concern at the time was preventing Chinese immigrants from crossing into the United States from Mexico. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 banned the immigration of the Chinese into the United States. It also excluded those immigrants from China that had legally immigrated and settled in the United States from becoming naturalized citizens. One United States Senator, George Frisbie Hoar of Massachusetts spoke out against the law and called it “nothing less

than the legalization of racial discrimination.” The exclusionary act would give rise to the first organized commercial human smuggling rings much like the “coyotes” of today. The exclusionary act was to be temporary, lasting for just 10 years but it was renewed and made permanent in 1902. It would not be repealed until 1943. The first permanent fence along the Arizona/ Mexico border was not installed until 1918 at Nogales. It took an incident known as the “Battle of Ambos Nogales” (both Nogales’) before the fence was erected. The battle started over a Mexican crossing the border into Arizona and then returning to Mexico without being inspected. A border patrol agent ran after him with his gun drawn after he failed to obey his See Centennial, Page 3

July 2012


Continued from Page 2 orders to halt. Seeing the agent with his gun drawn and chasing the Mexican, the Mexican soldier guarding the Mexican border shot at the agent missing him but killing a U.S. soldier. Other U.S. soldiers who had been nearby opened fire killing the Mexican soldier. Troops on both sides of the border rushed to the scene and began firing at each other leading to three American soldiers killed and 13 wounded while over 100 Mexicans including civilians were killed, among the dead was a two year old girl. In 1912, the Mexican revolution was spilling over the border with shooting incidents and revolutionaries crossing into Arizona to flee the Federales or recruit soldiers and purchase weapons. The smuggling of weapons from the United States into Mexico was big business as was opium coming into the U.S. from Mexico. American owned mining, oil and railroad companies were heavily invested in Mexico. At one time, American companies owned over 60 percent of the mining wealth in Mexico. There were a large number of Americans working and living in Mexico during this period. News from both sides of the border filled the Arizona newspapers of the day. Bisbee Daily Review – September 08, 1912 Thirteen hundred head of cattle, which were being smuggled into the United States from Mexico, were seized by mounted custom inspectors under authority of the Nogales custom house, on Thursday night. This is probably the largest and most important seizure ever made in the district of Arizona, involving, as it does about $20,000. Thomas Hester was arrested on a charge of attempted smuggling and

New offering from SaddleBrooke photographers By Jennifer R. Carnes In my family, my dad was the photographer. He had this really cool 35mm Pentax camera with all the lenses. He shot slide film and once or twice a year, he’d dig out his old slide projector and screen, we’d all gather in the living room, and he’d give us a slide show. I remember begging him to let me take his camera with me to college – just for a little while – so I could try my hand at photography. I went to school in Flagstaff and for the first time in my life was living in an area with four distinct seasons (unlike the two seasons we experience in the desert – hot and not quite so hot). Fast forward too many

years later and I have realized that photography has become an integral part of my life.

For the past 20 years, I have been pointing a camera at anything that will stand still (and more

that won’t). My first lesson in newspaper photography is one I won’t forget – don’t just take one photo, my managing editor said. Take many from different angles. You never know which one will be the best. I always thought that those guidelines were just for newspaper photographers. That is until I met Don and Sandy

Libby. Don and Sandy are the owners of Iron Creek Photography based in SaddleBrooke. “I’ve had a camera in my hand most of my life,” Don once told me. His wife picked up the habit from him. Don shoots with a medium format camera – much more technical

than your standard digital SLR camera. He likes to play with the settings – everything manual. Sandy prefers the digital SLR camera, although hers is not even close to standard – think Canon Rebel on steroids. Iron Creek Photography is most definitely a business for the Libbys. They produce and sell

Even the label for Iron Creek Photography’s fourth volume is a work of art. (Don Libby photo)

helps turn TV, computer into canvas fine art photography – landscapes and nature scenes. They have two galleries: showing at Claire’s Cafe and Gallery in Catalina and at the Homewood SuitesHilton in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Their gorgeous art prints are always for sale through both galleries and online at www. These photos are always the “best of the best.” One thing that the Libbys had to consider was what to do with the extra photos they had taken – ones they considered not “printable” but still amazing. Don has a blog and some of his photos end up on that site. Four years ago, they hit upon a great idea – why not create a digital slideshow, burn it to a DVD and see if anyone will buy it? Guess what? People loved the idea! Iron Creek Photography has just released its fourth DVD featuring images from the past year of Don and Sandy’s adventures in America. My daughter and I were lucky enough to view the slideshow before it was finalized. Let me tell you – AMAZING! It begins with a little video clip of American Buffalo moving into a wintery, snowy field. The slideshow follows this herd

which roams throughout with large landscape scenes and closeups on members of the herd. At one point in the slideshow you see a stand of trees,

The video follows the couple’s travels across the United States, mainly in Jackson Hole, Wyoming; but also including Florida and New Mexico’s White

Sands. They visit Native American ruins and bring the desert spring to life, experimenting with macro photography (think really close up).

Ten minutes into the slideshow, the viewer wanders into ‘gator territory in the Florida Everglades. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly placid looking scene – Mr. Gator’s looking right at you.

In the next minute, you are transported once again to Wyoming for some stunning mountain views and more stark winter scenes. A herd of moose graze in a snowy field, antlers proudly on display. See Photography, Page 12

You can harm yourself or others, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, and potentially be responsible for injuries, repair costs, and criminal penalties.

By John Hernandez Alma was a small settlement along the San Pedro River about two and a half miles above the old site of Mesaville which was near Old Camp Grant. The post office was founded by Frank Doll on May 12, 1891. He would be the first and only postmaster for Alma. It is not known how Alma got its name. Alma in Spanish can mean soul or spirit and there were Mexican settlers and workers in the area. It may also be likely that the name came from the Book of Alma which is in the Book of Mormon. Alma the Younger was a prophet and “chief judge” of the Nephites. There were Mormon settlements along the San Pedro River and other parts of Arizona including Mesa which has Alma School Road. The Spanish word may have been prophetic considering what happened to the town and Frank Doll. Frank Doll’s place was a combination post office, general store and makeshift

saloon. He was known to serve and sell liquor there which was against Federal regulations. Postal inspectors were few and far between in those times and some were known to look the other way. Frank’s place was profitable for a few years but in January 1895 an event would take place that would lead to the end of Alma in1898. One evening when the Dolls sat down to dinner, a knock was heard at the door. Mrs. Doll got up to see who was calling. When she opened the door two gun shots were fired. The muzzle of the gun was so close to her head that her face was seriously burned by the powder flash. She fell unconscious as she was knocked to the floor. The shooters, later identified as two Mexicans, burst into the house. Frank Doll rose from the table to help his wife and rushed both men. Before he could get past the dining table, he was shot in the heart by one of the bandits. The Doll’s son John made it to a door and ran out of the

house with the two Mexicans in pursuit. He almost made it to the road that passed by their place when he was hit multiple times in the back by the bullets from the Mexican’s guns. John Doll died on the spot. In the house Mrs. Doll regained consciousness. She extinguished the oil lamps in the house and fled out the front door, hiding in some thick brush away from the house. The Mexicans returned to the house and when they could not find Mrs. Doll went outside and began searching for her. The Mexicans looked for Mrs. Doll for what seemed to her to be an hour, twice walking close enough to her that she could have reached out and touched them. A noise from a wagon coming down the road near where John Doll was killed startled the Mexicans. They stopped searching and mounted their horses. When the wagon passed, they left the area. Mrs. Doll walked to John Brown’s ranch which was almost three miles away. Mr. Brown and some of his ranch hands rode to the Doll’s place while some of the cowboys rode to the nearest towns sounding the alarm along the San Pedro. At the Doll’s they found the bodies of Frank and John where they had fallen. The Globe newspaper, The Arizona Silverbelt, reported, “The dead bodies presented a sickening spectacle ...

Continued from Page 8 murderers had cut the throats of both men from ear to ear, and hacked their faces terribly … 50 cowboys are scouring the country in search of the murderers and if captured, their fate is likely to be as tragic as was that of their victims.” On Jan. 31, Territorial Governor Hughes offered an award of $500 for the arrest and conviction of the murderers of the Dolls. On Feb. 3, the Arizona Star newspaper reported that two Mexicans were apprehended in Mammoth a few days prior. F. C. McKinney reported that one was released due to lack of evidence and the other taken to Florence. “Had it been positively shown that these men committed the terrible slaughter, they would soon have dangled at the end of the rope,” the Star reported. Jesus Lares was the young man charged with the murder of the Dolls. In June 1895 Lares was convicted of the murders and sentenced to be hanged. During the trial Mrs. Doll positively identified him and a Mexican woman Mrs. Feliz testified that on the day of the robbery she heard Lares say, “Now would be a good time to rob the store.” He was scheduled to hang August 2, 1895. Lares was granted a reprieve by the appeals court until the following year. His conviction was upheld and he received an execution date of April 3, 1896. As one of his last official acts Territorial

Governor Hughes granted him a stay of execution until June. In June a large petition was filed on behalf of Lares by his attorneys asking for a

commutation on the grounds that the convicting evidence was too slight and new evidence tended to show that Lares had nothing to do with the murder. Lares’

Jerry Lopez 928.812.1548

mother traveled to Phoenix to speak with the new Governor Benjamin Franklin. Franklin had been a lawyer prior to becoming governor. In July 1896, Franklin commuted Lares’ sentence to life in prison. Lares was escorted by Sheriff Truman to the Yuma Territorial Prison. It is not known if the other murderer was ever captured. In February 1895, a few weeks after the Doll murder, John Roach had been in charge of the post office and store in Alma and had experienced another dangerous robbery attempt. Three Mexicans had entered the store and tried to hold him up. Roach grabbed his pistol and opened fire hitting one of the Mexicans. The other two then fled. Fearing the Mexicans would return and seek vengeance on him, Roach fled to Mammoth where he sought assistance. When Roach returned to the store he found that the Mexicans had returned and taken $35 he had in the register. The wounded Mexican was reported to

be receiving treatment in Mammoth for a serious but not a fatal wound. Two other proprietors tried to make a go of the store and post office but in 1898 the post office was discontinued

Tombstone Epitaph – February 18, 1912 Five thousand dollars worth of opium was expressed from Globe by the clerk of the district court to Tom O’Keefe collector of customs at Nogales. It will be destroyed. The opium was seized when Dorothy McCleave of Clifton, was arrested on a charge of smuggling. She gave a bond

Nugget but later disappeared. Tombstone Epitaph – May 05, 1912 The largest seizure made upon the Arizona border took place in the early part of the week in Nogales, when 10,000 rounds of ammunition and 500 rifles were confiscated by United States cavalrymen who had been working upon the case. The arms and ammunition were intended, it is stated, for the Yaquis and Sinaloa Red Flagers. Tombstone Epitaph August 04, 1912 A squad of Mexican soldiers fired a volley into United States territory at Naco last Saturday night,

under the impression, so the perfecto explained to the authorities the next day, that rebels were attempting to cross from the states into Mexico. The affair was brought about by a group of Chinamen, who while being smuggled across the border, were apprehended by a United States mounted inspector of customs. They were discovered on the American side of the line, were pursued by the inspector and made for the international line. Unable to overtake them he fired one shot over their heads with the intention of intimidating the celestials. A volley

from Mexican soldiers stationed in the hills was the immediate response. Nothing more has been seen of the Chinamen. Tombstone Epitaph – August 25, 1912 There is again something stirring along the border, in the opinion of hardware dealers of Douglas. Business in rifles and ammunition is reported to have been the best had in a number of weeks. The Dispatch says: At one store sales aggregating several thousand dollars worth of rifles and cartridges are said to have been made. The purchasers were Mexicans but whether rebels or federals is not known. It was reported

as soon as the Chihuahua colonists arrive they will start for the line overland. This information was received at the Mormon headquarters here Thursday morning in a letter from *Junius Romney, stake officer of the Mexican colonies, who has joined the men and is in command of them. One man was injured in the skirmish which the Mormons had with a rebel band which attempted to stop them from leaving the country. *Historical note – Junius Romney is related to current presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney’s father George, as a child was one of the Mormons that fled Mexico during the revolution. Junius was one of the leaders that safely guided the Mormon colonists back to the United States. $2,000 for Americans The Mexican government has settled with Germany and China for their subjects killed during the Madero revolution, paying $25,000 for each German killed, $10,000 for each Chinaman, and offered $2,000 for each American. The offer for Americans was not accepted. Bisbee Daily Review – October 03, 1912 Douglas, Arizona – The border patrol in this section has been increased, owing to the loss of many horses which are thought to have been stolen by the rebels in the night, and from the fact that many Mexicans of suspicious character are constantly crossing this side See Centennial, Page 11

Continued from Page 10 on every possible pretext, it being thought that many of them are smugglers or bound on other mischief. Weekly Journal-Miner – November 13, 1912 The trial of Charles Fitzsimmons in connection with the largest seizure of opium ever made in the southwest, and one of the largest made anywhere outside of San Francisco, was begun in the United States district court yesterday. The arrest of Fitzsimmons several months ago followed the capture at Los Angeles of Charles Williams with a stock of opium valued at $25,000. The opium has been traced from the Mexican line north of Cananea to a ranch owned by Williams not far from St. David, Cochise county, and it was thence sent to the coast. Bisbee Daily Review – January 21, 1912 During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1911, 502 aliens were admitted through the Douglas immigration office. Eighty two were denied entrance to this country. Among these were fourteen who were debarred because of disease, forty six because they were liable to become public charges and three were debarred because of being women of immoral character. Twenty two warrants of arrest were issued and of these warrant cases, twenty two deportations of undesirable aliens resulted. Eight Chinese unlawfully in this country were deported. The present fiscal year ending June 30, 1912, will show a decided increase in immigration to the United States from Mexico through this port. The recent revolution in Mexico was the cause of many of the citizens of Mexico immigrating to the United States. A large number of these came in family parties with the intention of becoming permanent residents of this county or residing here until
