Wildfire rages near Sunflower Fire season roars off to early start ALEXIS BECHMAN

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

L

Windy conditions and rough terrain are making it difficult for firefighters to get a handle on the Sunflower Fire south of Payson. The fire started Saturday morning and quickly spread, burning through 2,500 acres overnight. As of Tuesday morning, the fire was at 4,600 acres and 5 percent containment. While Hotshot crews wrestle to wrangle in the first large northern Gila County wildfire of the year, officials say they have kept the fire away from the Beeline Highway and any structures. Meanwhile in Prescott, another fire has forced the evacuation of some 300 homes, one of four major fires burning statewide. That includes the nearby 700-acre Bull Flat Fire just south of Canyon Creek Fish Hatchery in the Pleasant Valley Ranger District in the Tonto National Forest. The fire has also burned onto the Fort Apache

Reservation about 20 miles northwest of Cibecue. Yesterday, the fire was 35 percent contained. The 160 firefighters online Monday evening had the fire 45 percent contained, thanks to backfires along a nine-mile stretch of Forest Road 109. But the biggest fire so far remains the Sunflower Fire, although it continues to burn away from the small community of Sunflower into steep slopes and rugged wilderness areas. On the south end of the fire, the nearest home is more than a mile away in Sunflower, said Debbie Cress, spokesperson with the Arizona Central-West Type 2 Incident Management Team, which took over supervising the fire Sunday. On Monday, steady winds from the northeast pushed the fire south, creating a large plume of smoke in the sky. Officials are monitoring highway visibility, but so far, smoke has not forced the closure of the highway. See Fire season, page 10A

For four straight years, Lorna knocked on doors and sent letters and e-mails to get her neighbors’ attention. The buzzing sound of chain saws in the fresh thickets of small trees bears evidence to her persistence. Only a handful of property owners

refused to participate. While firewise standards offer no guarantee of survival, the Glaunsingers say they’ve stacked the odds in favor of the community. The four fires that kicked off an early, scary fire season this weekend underscored the single greatest threat to Rim Country. When it comes to wildfire, it’s not a question of “if” but of “when,” say fire officials. The Glaunsingers hope other communities will follow their lead and remove the brush before a fire claims their homes. In Bonita Creek, many residents thought that the Dude Fire destroyed so much thick brush that they wouldn’t have to worry about another fire for years. “When you have a fire and it comes through you think, ‘Oh I am safe for the next 50 years,’” Bill said. When the manzanita and grass started to come back, residents welcomed the renewed growth at first. But when a community assessment found the area was badly overgrown once again, community members decided to do something.

In one of her English classes, Anna Van Zile had her students design a vanity license plate with words that best described them. For her license plate, Van Zile wrote in italicized letters: “CNLIFE.” She translated what it meant for her class: seeing life at a slant. This has double meaning for Van Zile. She looks different because of her Asian heritage, and she also looks at life differently from everyone else. “I don’t see solutions as everyone else does,” she said. She also believes students benefit from understanding accountability and standing up for themselves. Anna Van Zile These attitudes, she believes, will help her at her new position as principal of Payson High School (PHS). This past week, the district hired Van Zile as principal to replace Kathe Ketchem, who will retire at the end of the year. For the past two years, she has worked as assistant principal. Before taking on that position, she worked for more than six years as an English teacher in the district. Van Zile’s philosophy comes from her past. As a Japanese-American, she and her family have had to

Crews recently thinned thickets that had regrown since the Dude Fire around Bonita Creek, now a “firewise” community. Tiny wooden green tree stakes at the foot of driveways throughout the community proudly declare: this home is firewise. The Glaunsingers made each of those signs and are largely responsible for helping the community do what so many have not.

Bonita Creek embraces firewise 22 years after Dude Fire deaths When the Dude Fire ripped through the homes of Lorna and Bill Glaunsinger and 50 of their neighbors more than 22 years ago, the couple wasn’t sure they could rebuild. After raging 10 days, the forest fire had claimed the lives of six firefighters and left a moonscape behind. It took six years, but the couple eventually rebuilt. Today, Bonita Creek is once again a quiet community of more than fourdozen homes tucked in the woods northeast of Payson. But a remarkable thing has happened since the Dude Fire: Almost all of those homeowners have made their property “firewise.” Vegetation no longer clogs the yards and brushes up against homes.

Longhorns finish record seasons in golf, softball From page 1A said, “if a player’s goal as a freshman is not to someday make it to state, I don’t want them on my team.” Around the country, senior citizens vividly recall the smallest of details of state tournaments that occurred decades ago. Some might forget their phone number, but they remember the exact moment they lashed a base hit that scored the winning run or recovered a fumble that preserved a victory. Even those former prep athletes who have suffered that final crushing defeat with a championship at their fingertips, have memories they hold precious and personal. A new generation of prep athletes had the opportunity to mold their own memories last weekend when Payson High School softball, golf and track team members competed in the Division III state tournaments held around the state. In Phoenix, the softball team’s dream of a state championship came up short, but the players will long remember the run to the semifinals in which they scraped, fought and climbed their way to an impressive 29-3

record. The team that finally beat them in a fierce struggle went on to win the state championship. And no one will ever forget the Lady Longhorns’ come-from-behind, 8-7 quarterfinal tournament win over Mingus, during which PHS rallied from a 7-0 hole in the bottom of the seventh and final inning. Those on the track team can now try to match Keith Williams’ gold medal winning pole vault and Morgan Chilson’s 100-meter sprint against the best runners Arizona has to offer. In Prescott, the golf team won a victory of

character by swarming back from an 11stroke first-day deficit to finish as state runners-up. And beyond those unforgettable moments on the field are hundreds of other precious memories — including long bus rides, overnight motel stays, making new friends, and sitting down for a team meal. Most all who have played sports know well the thrill of state competition and the tremendous sense of adventure that goes along with the excitement. State competition also helps us fully appreciate just how much good can come from the sports we love.

After being awarded more than $240,000 in grant money, Bonita Creek residents agreed to pay Tree Pro $138 per acre to have their property cleared to firewise specifications.

Twenty years ago, most residents had never heard of firewise. When the Glaunsingers bought their property in 1980, the land was so thick, it took them three years to clear it. When the home was finally built, builders left as many trees as possible. “When we first bought it, you couldn’t take two steps without hitting a tree,” Bill said. The woodsy feel was far different from their home in the Valley and the whole reason why they had moved to the area. When the fire destroyed everything they had worked for, the couple struggled with the decision to rebuild. “I was like, ‘I am going to beat this thing, we are going to rebuild,’” Lorna said, “and Bill was like, ‘Gee, maybe I am going to look elsewhere’ and he looked elsewhere and said, ‘No, this is it.’” Many more people left. Only a few residents decided to rebuild. The Forest Service appeared to have learned its lessons from the fire, which at the time was the largest in Arizona history. Today, wildland firefighters are still brought into the community to see where the six firefighters died. “I think it is very good because when you are a wildland firefighter and especially when you are a young buck, you are thinking nothing can get me and when you see where the crosses are and where they died, it just sinks in,” Lorna said. The community was not so quick to change. People had not cleared land around their homes and had little understanding of firewise codes, Lorna said. Then several community members decided to do something when the ground coverage became a hazard again. The Glaunsingers joined a committee that helped draft a community plan to solve the fire issues. Bonita Creek was officially recognized with a Firewise Communities/USA recognition status and work began to clean up the area five years ago.

The Glaunsingers, retired teachers, got more involved as time went on and four years ago, took a firewise class in property assessments. Eventually, the community got two grants, totaling more than $240,000, to cover the cost of brush removal. To get their home firewise approved, a homeowner had to agree to let Lorna review the property, agree to a plan and pay 10 percent, or $138 per acre, to have Tree Pro clear to firewise specifications. Sounded easy enough, but the couple ran into a lot of resistance. Many homeowners believed their land was not overgrown and many more thought firewise meant their land would be stripped bare of all vegetation. Both these ideas are false, Bill said. Basic guidelines call for clearing most vegetation within 30 to 60 feet of a home. Isolated trees can remain within that 30-foot zone, but only if homeowners clear the brush and trees within 30 feet of that tree. Secondly, tree crews cut off all the branches up to one-third of the tree’s height to reduce the chance a ground fire will spread up into the treetop. For additional guidelines, go to www.firewise.org. Lorna found most homeowners readily signed up once they understood the rules. Homeowners marked the trees they wanted to keep. “This has been a three-year process and it has been a struggle,” Lorna said. “Every year you knock on their door again.” With grant funding nearly gone, the Glaunsingers are happy to report that 90 percent of homes are now firewise. The community still needs to develop a second escape route and is working with the Forest Service to have the land around the community thinned. The Forest Service recently approved funding to have the land around the Rim Trail and Washington Park communities thinned. “The interior of those communities are still very dangerous,” the Glaunsingers said.

OPINION

4A TUESDAY, MAY 15, 2012

OURVIEW

LOOKBACK • May 17, 1792: A group of 24 traders gather under a buttonwood tree at 68 Wall Street in lower Manhattan to work out the regulations of the speculative market. The result was the Buttonwood Agreement, a two-sentence contract that gave birth to the New York Stock Exchange. • May 16, 1929: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hands out its first awards. The Academy officially began using the nickname Oscar for its awards in 1939. The name possibly arose when Academy executive director Margaret Herrick remarked that the statuette looked like her Uncle Oscar. • May 15, 1982: “Ebony and Ivory,” a duet by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder, takes the top spot in the Billboard Hot 100. This continued the pop music trend of pairing successful duos, such as Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond, and Diana Ross and Lionel Richie.

The fiery demon that stalks us all he ominous column of smoke rising to the south has underscored the single greatest threat to the communities we love so dearly — wildfires. Mercifully, the Sunflower Fire burned into steep canyons and wilderness, moving away from the little community of Sunflower. However, another wildfire that started this weekend and made a run on Prescott forced the evacuation of 300 homes. Used to be, the scary part of the fire season didn’t start until June when the spring rains had ended and rising temperatures had dried out the fuels. Each year we ran the gauntlet through June until the monsoons started in July. As a result, the monster fires like the Dude and the Rodeo-Chediski all flared in June. But for the last several years, spring rains have mostly skipped us, doubling the window of greatest danger. Several climate models have predicted drier springs as a result of the ongoing warming of the planet. Some truly frightening models suggest that if the warming trend continues as expected for another few decades, our life-saving monsoon rains could dry up as well. Communities like Bonita Creek understand the danger, as evidenced by our front-page story. Some 22 years ago, six firefighters working to protect that community from the Dude Fire got caught in the catastrophic collapse of a furious plume of superheated air. The collapse of the plume blasted flames outward in every direction on hurricane force winds. The collapse of that plume came as a result of the intensity of that raging crown fire. Before the Dude Fire, such fire behavior was virtually unknown. Since then, it has grown increasingly common, due to the enormous loads of fuel now choking millions of acres. Clearly, we must take a lesson from Bonita Creek — and from Greer, Alpine and other White Mountain towns saved from the Wallow Fire last summer by the smallest of margins and a thinned buffer zone on the edge of town. We must go much further to protect all we love and everything we’ve worked for. We must insist that the county and the towns adopt tough firewise building codes that insist on fire resistant roofs, cleared zones around houses, the elimination of overhanging wooden eves and highly flammable building materials. We must make sure that the Forest Service has the community support it needs to educate the visitors on which we depend concerning the dangers that face us all from the careless use of fire. We must also insist that our elected representatives make it their top priority to restore the forests to a healthy balance and fire to its natural cycle. The history-making 4-Forests Restoration Initiative remains the key to any long-term solution, but already that massive thinning project has fallen frighteningly behind schedule. So watch the smoke — and learn its lessons now, this moment, before our luck runs out.

T

It’s not whether you win or lose ... e have champions among us. And we’re awfully proud. Granted, the Lady Longhorns softball team on Friday fought hard but finally fell to the team that went on to win the state championship. Further granted, our plucky golf team came in second in the state tournament in Prescott. That don’t matter. They didn’t lose by much: A few strokes, a few strikeouts, a bobbled ball more or less. The last few innings aren’t the measure of a season. The Lady Longhorns proved they’re champions by the grace and persistence of their play — and their astonishing rally at the last possible moment in one of the greatest playoff games of all time. And the Longhorn golfers proved they’re champions when they rallied from a bad round and came within about six strokes of one of the great comebacks in state golf playoff history. So don’t worry, kids — we couldn’t be more proud if you’d shaved the last few strokes and capped your season with a few more runs. Thanks for lifting our hearts, giving us a chance to shout ourselves hoarse and proving that we’re a town full of champions.

Tax fairness not political EDITOR: If there was an ounce of common sense about “how” the rich got richer and the poor got poorer, no one would have a fleeting chance against the 99 percent working, educational, medical and military needs of our country. Tax fairness is not a political matter, Democrat or Republican, it is for the United States of America. Think twice about the security and welfare of your own family before you cast a vote against them. “The test of progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much — it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.” — Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Oct. 5, 1937) Jerry and Sarah Phipps

Community effort, support vital to success EDITOR: During this troublesome economic downturn, we have made a concerted effort to get our community moving forward again. That effort has evolved into several converging and interlinked projects. This complexity has, in turn, produced an enormous amount of work and pressure on your community leaders to keep each project moving synergistically forward with each of the other interlinked projects. A few of our larger projects include: the Blue Ridge pipeline, economic development, tourism/events, distance telemedicine and a fouryear university campus here in Payson. With so many moving pieces, our efforts to keep the community reasonably informed and apprised of our progress have become increasingly more challenging. For example, some of the information recently conveyed resulted in a misconception that the Rim Country Educational Alliance (RCEA, the Separate Legal Entity that will enter into all contracts and legal agreements for the campus), was not supportive of the community fund-raising efforts, nor supportive of the negotiating efforts that have gone on over these last few months. The message that should have been conveyed is that the RCEA is absolutely committed to moving this university project forward and will continue to press on steadfastly to make it happen. The other part of the message is that the RCEA’s success will be enhanced and made easier if there is a strong showing of community support, both emotionally and financially. The words may not have come out right, but the message is the same — we are all committed to make this university happen in Payson. We express regret if, in the interest of expressing commitment and enthusiasm, that message was mis-communicated. In terms of our campaign for supporting the “the middle mile” of the university project, we take an approach that is both “friends raising” and “funds raising.” If you are unable to contribute financially, we hope that you will be a friend by contributing your support and enthusiasm. If you have a desire and capability to contribute, a group of committed volunteers have designed a number of ways in which to share

information with you, meet with you to discuss your interests, and share the benefits of your potential contribution. It is not our desire to dilute donations to the many worthy charities that you and our community support. It is our desire, on the other hand, to enable community members to become a part of accomplishing an undertaking that is so vital to the future of our community, doing so as a friend and/or a donor. We have an experienced SLE board and an incredibly talented and committed group of community volunteers who are very capable of advancing this project with enthusiasm and vision. We will continue to find ways to reach out to Rim Country residents with timely and accurate information. As the baton is being handed off to those who drive the final process, all of us in Rim Country can feel good about rallying around a winning team. Be assured that we all will be right there with you helping them “get’r done!” Mike Vogel, chairman, Rim Country Educational Alliance Judie Lyon, chairwoman, A University Campus in Payson Volunteer Committee Richard Johnson, chairman, A University Campus in Payson Fund Raising Committee Kenny Evans, volunteer

JRE PTO says thanks EDITOR: The Julia Randall Elementary PTO wants to say thank you to our community for our successful and fun Spring Fling Carnival held May 4. A big, big, big, thanks goes out to the Kiwanis! Their food was delicious, the monetary donation greatly appreciated and their service of food and drink handling can’t be beat! Thank you to the Payson High School agriculture students for hauling their menagerie to the school grounds. The kids really enjoyed getting up close to the various animals. Thanks as well to High Desert Dentistry for the use of their helium tank, and Kristin, too. Thank you to all the teachers, staff and parents who helped set up and run the day’s events. A special thanks to John, Denise and Shelley for being there all day with me to make the event come off as planned. And Mr. Pete, couldn’t have done it without you! Not only did he meet his daily demands at JRE, but cheerfully met all our demands, too. The kids had a great time, making it all worth it. Sue Becker, president, JRE PTO

More Republican mistruths EDITOR: Once again I am forced to take pen in hand to counter the latest Republican mistruths. Once again (sigh) we see wild-eyed allegations with no substance nor explanation behind them. Alan Kline chides Obama as mentally unstable. I would consider George Bush as mentally and emotionally unstable. Or at least a coldhearted conservative. Two weeks after giving billionaires and millionaires billions of dollars in

tax cuts he was informed that the pension board in Washington was $20 billion short. When asked if he was going to make up this shortfall, so hardworking common people who had lost their jobs and pensions could have some money to live on he replied, “No. People have to learn to get by on less.” How would you qualify this, Mr. Kline? And is egotistical just an euphemism for “uppity”? I would like to translate Republican speak for the uninformed. Free enterprise means no government regulations, with no controls to protect the unwary. Anything goes. Power to the rich. Corporations run roughshod over the consumers. Limited government interference means busting unions, impoverishing workers, polluting at will, again, no controls. Or as Hitler said “might makes right.” Strong moral values means having the straitlaced, have no fun, conservative ethics forced upon everyone that doesn’t follow their narrow viewpoint on how the world should be. You should behave like they tell you to do! Just like in Nazi Germany. Once again I wonder how average folk can be persuaded to champion the cause of the greedy rich. I’m sure they appreciate it and laugh at you all the way to the bank (probably in the Cayman Islands). Leon Chamberlain

Honoring our students EDITOR: On Tuesday evening, May 8, 2012, Payson High School set out to recognize our very best students. This is the opportunity that our staff has to showcase student effort in their classes as well as students who have maintained excellent grades throughout one or both semesters. While we planned to acknowledge more than 200 students that night for their accomplishments, the achievements of 24 were accidentally overlooked when their awards were buried by those belonging to absent students. It was not until after the close of the ceremony that parents and students brought this error to our attention, and we discovered our oversight. Though their names were correctly printed in the program, we failed to honor these students in the manner they both deserved and expected. And it is with our sincerest apologies that we acknowledge this mistake. It should not have happened, and we sincerely regret the error. Those not honored on Tuesday for achieving a 4.0 to 5.0 grade point average for the first semester are as follows: Bhavin Ahir, Morgan Andersen, Zachary Anderson, Jennifer Bailey, Priya Bhakta, Michaela Croy, Matthew Davis, Nisha Edwin, Cheslsea Frewin, Jordyn Fruth, Savannah Grassel, Clinton Harper, Andrew Kitts, Miguel Mendoza, Natalie Moceri, Kenneth Nyhus, Natalia Olivares, Quinn Owen, Kayla Percell, Christopher Perry, Catalina Schnepp, Rishele Shoults, Karen Williams and Zoe Wright. Please offer your congratulations to these young ladies and gentlemen. They have all maintained a grade point average of 4.0 or above for the first semester. Payson High School is proud of each of you and knows you will continue to persevere. Anna Van Zile and Kathe Ketchem, PHS administrators

Cowboy Up Rim Country, it’s rodeo time Riders explode from the chutes Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Payson Event Center BY

TERESA MCQUERREY

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

It’s time for Rim Country to Cowboy Up. The 2012 Gary Hardt Memorial Rodeo, an annual celebration of the Rim’s Western heritage takes place Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 17, 18 and 19 at the Payson Event Center on Highway 87, across from the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino. The event Thursday night is the Cactus Women’s Professional Rodeo Association events — barrel racing, tie-down roping and team roping. Gates open at 5 p.m., with the contests starting at 7 p.m. Admission is one can of food or more for the food banks in the Rim Country. While there will be members of the WPRA competing for points, the event is also open to women of all ages, even if they don’t have a WPRA card. So, expect to see some dazzling displays of horsemanship, speed and grace. Friday night is the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink performance, where cowboys and fans alike, along with the arena crew, wear pink to help local breast cancer support groups. For all wearing pink, $1 per fan and $3 per contestant is donated to the local groups. Saturday night will be the rodeo’s tribute to honor wounded and fallen veterans. Both Friday and Saturday night, the gates open at 5 p.m., with the rodeo starting at 7 p.m. There are 228 contestants listed on the preliminary participant sheets. Some competitors have world and national titles and standings, according to rodeo boss Bill Armstrong. Among the top ranked folks to be looking for: team roper Jake Barnes of Scottsdale; team roper Derrick Begay of Seba Delkai, Ariz.; barrel racer Sherry Cervi of Marana, Ariz.; bareback rider Tom McFarland of Bowie, Texas; and bareback rider Wes Stevenson of Lubbock, Texas. A few competitors with Payson roots will also be among the contestants: barrel racer Whitney Alderson; team roper Wyatt Althoff; bareback rider Jason Amon; team roper TJ Brown; team roper Kyle Conway; team roper Hal Earnhardt III; and barrel racer Teri James. Not all live in Payson — Althoff claims Oracle, Ariz. as home, but his parents and grandparents have both lived in Payson; Conway makes his home in Casa Grande, Ariz., but his mother is noted rodeo horsewoman Penny Conway and she and her husband have deep Rim Country roots; Earnhardt is from Queen Creek, Ariz., but his fami-

ly has long been owners of the Little Green Valley Ranch east of Payson. Most of the 200-plus contestants come from around Arizona and New Mexico, but you will also see competitors visiting the Rim Country from Utah, Texas, Nevada, Wyoming, North Dakota and Nebraska. One competitor is coming all the way from Newberg, Ore. But the champion traveler to the 2012 spring rodeo is bull rider Cody Heffernan, who is from Singleton, New South Wales in Australia. With more than 200 competitors, not all can compete in the evening contests, so some draw “slack time” and ride during the day. Armstrong said slack will start at 8 a.m., Friday, May 18 at the Payson Event Center. He expects there will be 46 barrel racers, 17 ropers and nine pairs of the team ropers running in slack. The public can come out and watch these competitions free of charge, Armstrong said. Tickets for adults 12 to 64 are $14; seniors $12; and children, 8 to 12, $10 (those 7 and under are free). All active military will be admitted at no charge with proper identification. Tickets may be reserved online at www.payson rimcountry.com and www.ticketforce.com or purchased at the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce, Bob’s Western Wear and the Circle K stores in Payson, as well as Bill Armstrong’s Jewelry and Pawn in Star Valley. For additional information, call rodeo boss Bill Armstrong, (928) 474-9440. Rodeo royalty returns to Rim Country

The contests to select Miss Rodeo Arizona and Miss Teen Rodeo Arizona return to the Rim Country this week. The events will feature appearances by Miss Rodeo Arizona Audrey Hall and Miss Teen Rodeo Arizona Brittney Hamilton, as well as Miss Turquoise Circuit Brittney Truman. Hall was scheduled to arrive Tuesday to make visits to area longterm care facilities and meet with some of the contest sponsors. The public events begin Friday, May 18. The tentative schedule of events open to the public include: Friday, May 18: 1 p.m., Payson Event Center, horsemanship, no charge; 3:30 p.m., personal appearances and autographs, Bob’s Western Wear; 6:45 p.m., dinner, informal modeling and introductions, Lomona Conference Center, Mount Cross Lutheran Church, 601 E.

The reigning royalty

Miss Rodeo Arizona 2011 is Yuma’s Audrey Hall, the second daughter of John and Cindy Hall and sister to Kelsey, Mariah and Sabrina. She has spent the last year traveling the country representing the state and serving as the First Lady of Professional Rodeo in Arizona. She competed in Las Vegas representing Arizona at the December Miss Rodeo America pageant and brought home a “Top 10” buckle, along with memo-

ries and friendships that will last a lifetime. Now that her reign is coming to an end, Hall will be going back to school to finish her bachelor’s degree in marketing and public relations through Ashford University in Clinton, Iowa. Then she plans to work in this field and pursue a master’s degree, so she can be a professor in marketing at some point. Growing up she raised 4-H club lambs, and played the viola and cello in the orchestra. She also played basketball, volleyball, softball, swam and danced. Her “horse sense” came at a young age and she has grown up loving to ride and compete in different timed events through YPBRA and Westside Riders. Through these organizations and holding local queen titles Hall found her passion and knew her future had to be in the equine industry. She still works on the timed event side of the arena and has high hopes of running barrels in the WPRA and is excited to stay involved in the Miss Rodeo Arizona Organization so that girls in the future have just as much of a fun growing experience as she did this last year. Miss Teen Rodeo Arizona 2011 is Brittney Hamilton of Ahwatukee, Ariz. Hamilton, sponsored by Golden West Cowgirls Drill Team, is a student at Desert Vista High School and has future plans to study anesthesiology in medical school. She has been riding horses since she could sit up and hold on. One of the first things she did when she learned how to talk, was to ask for a horse. “I believe I can achieve greatness through leading by example, practicing ethical standards in everything I do, being a responsible citizen and always doing my best while helping others achieve their best. I believe the title of Miss Teen Rodeo Arizona has given me the opportunity to put my ‘best’ to work for rodeo,” she says. Miss Turquoise Circuit Brittney Truman is a Scottsdale resident and has been involved in rodeo her entire life. Currently, she runs barrels in the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association and continues to rope with her dad and uncles. While her job as Miss Turquoise Circuit consists of traveling thousands of miles between the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Turquoise Circuit of Arizona and New Mexico promoting the sport of rodeo and the Western way of life, Truman stays busy behind the scenes as well. She is currently studying equine science and sports medicine in college and has worked with the Justin Sports Medicine Program, which specializes in the rehabilitation of rodeo cowboy injuries. “I would like to thank the 2011 Miss Rodeo Arizona, Audrey Hall, for everything she has done. She has been the world’s best traveling partner and has done an excellent job representing Arizona throughout the past year, not only in the arena but as a spokeswoman, role model, and friend to all.”

TESTING THE

High school ecology class examines the East Verde BY

MICHELE NELSON

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

Kalynn Roggenstein, a junior at Payson High School (PHS), reached between the rocks to grab the gigantic spider. Her classmates gasped at her boldness. They wanted nothing to do with the eight-legged creature until Roggenstein safely put the 2.5-inch-long arachnid in a sieve. “We let everybody look at it,” she said, “then we took measurements and wrote down information to identify it.” Roggenstein loves to study macroinvertebrates, the scientific name for spiders and other critters that have a hard outer shell. She found the spider during a field trip with PHS science instructor Beverly Adams. Adams takes her ecology students to test the waters of the East Verde River to study the science of the environment, macro-invertebrates like the spider, are a vital part of the lesson. Adams has her students take samples of the river at the second crossing of the East Verde near Whispering Pines, the first crossing near Beaver Creek and several sites off the Flowing Springs and East Verde Estates roads. Adams has her students study the chemistry, biology and physics of the nat-

ural environment — all part of the study of ecology, a subset of biology. “(It is) looking at relationships between living things and their environment,” said Adams. “Water is a huge topic, (the students) get bored with it.” The students check the water to determine the chemicals from oxygen to nitrogen, phosphorus, chlorine, and fecal coliform — the amount of solid waste in the water. The students analyze how the temperature and the volume of the flow of the water affect the river ecology. She also has the students look at the trees to decide which dominate the area, their spacing, and size to analyze the health of the riparian forest. And, of course, they study the macroinvertebrates, both in and out of the water. Adams created the ecology class after working at PHS for a year as the biology and life science teacher. The idea originated with Cindy Pool, a PHS science teacher who tragically died in a biking accident. Adams continued the field trip and

The field trip gives her students hands-on experience with the topic, as when Roggenstein found the spider. Each trip offers a new adventure for Adams. Roggenstein’s spider capture dominated this particular trip, but during past excursions students have embraced the value of waders, immersed themselves in a search for water macro-invertebrates or focused on collecting the chemistry data. “You never know what they’ll take away from it,” said Adams.

One student became completely enamored with the waders Adams has her students use in the water. At first, hesitant to even try them on, he later told her he had asked his football coach if he could practice in them. Another student wanted to wear them when they walked for graduation. Adams was not sure either of them got their wish, but she enjoyed turning their perspective around. The one thing that never changes on these ecology trips is asking questions. Adams smiles as she recounts how her students react when she gently prods them to rely on measurements to answer

their questions. “They tell me, ‘Can’t I text Cha-cha for the answer?’ Or they say, ‘Google knows everything,’ but Google and Cha-cha don’t know how far they would need to drill to find water under our classroom,” said Adams. The river trips provide a chance for students to take measurements that they then must turn around in their heads to explore what science is all about: Asking the question, finding evidence and then asking more questions. For Roggenstein, the Spider Snatcher, the day proved a triumph. “Such a cool experience!” she said.

Payson Supply Line still on the front lines Fun Run raised money to send care packages to troops BY

TERESA MCQUERREY

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

What started as a gift to a family member grew into a program that has provided nearly 2,000 boxes of gifts to U.S. military men and women in war zones. Veterans Butch Klein and Lud Kaftan started the Payson Supply Line in January 2005. The first beneficiary of what became Payson Supply Line was Jason Watson, the brother of Butch and Kathy Klein’s daughter-in-law. After sending Jason a small box of items just as “family,” Butch felt God was leading him to do more — not just for Jason, but for all of the U.S. troops stationed in the war zones. Butch is a former Marine and discussed his thoughts with fellow Christian and former Marine Captain Lud Kaftan. In just a short time, Butch and Lud brought their wives, Kathy and Marian, into the mix. Lud’s home office became the first area to store supplies and pack the boxes for shipping. Newspaper articles generated publicity as events raised money. During one early interview, Butch said he remembers how very precious those comfort and care items from home were to him in the Marines. The memory helps keep the fire burning for his commitment to this special mission. One of the most successful efforts to bring money to the nonprofit organization is hosted by the Payson American Legion Riders. The group has a “Fun Run” motorcycle ride each spring. Last

year it raised $10,000 for the Payson Supply Line. The group staged this year’s Fun Run on Saturday, but haven’t yet tallied up the money brought in. The Kleins and Kaftans found the residents of Payson and the Rim Country area very supportive and it didn’t take long for donations to roll in, along with many names and addresses of family and friends stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan. The Payson Supply Line storage/ packing facility has grown from Lud’s home office in 2005 to bigger and bigger, very organized rented storage units over the years at Swiss Village Storage in Payson. The owners and managers of Swiss Village Storage are huge supporters, and their wonderful facilities are perfect for the needs of Payson Supply Line. So many people want to support our troops, but aren’t sure where to begin. The group continues to send packages to troops in Afghanistan, but discontinued shipments to Iraq after the U.S. Post Office there shut down in November as the bulk of the troops left. If you have a

Riders participated on various makes of bikes, including an Indian motorcycle (top left photo). friend or loved one stationed in Afghanistan and you would like them to receive a box from Payson Supply Line, please forward their name and mailing

information to paysonsupplyline@yahoo .com. Want to donate? Mail your check to Payson Supply Line, 514 E. Timber Drive,

Payson, AZ 85541. All donations are tax deductible. Volunteers put a form letter in every box to let our troops know that all items are supplied by donation in support of them and their mission. Butch jots a personal note on the back of each form letter so the recipient knows who provided us with their name and mailing information and who requested the box for them. The boxes include items needed and requested by military personnel that the military normally doesn’t issue. Special requests for needed supplies come through the families as well as directly from the military personnel themselves via e-mail. A typical box weighs approximately 35 pounds and holds enough items to supply 10 or more people. Items include health care items to snacks, cereal, powdered drink mixes, hand and foot warmers, small games and much more. The cost to ship a typical box is approximately $65. These boxes are bringing much joy to the troops and Payson Supply Line plans to continue its efforts until the last U.S. military personnel leave the region. “We are thankful to all those that support us in this mission and are honored to put your donations to work so that our troops can feel the love and support from their fellow Americans,” the group says on their Web site. The Payson Supply Line is a Christian based 501(c)(3) organization with four officers: Butch Klein, president; Lud Kaftan, vice president; Marian Kaftan, treasurer; and Kathy Klein, secretary. All are volunteers and no salaries are ever taken. “We give God all the glory for the success of this mission. Payson Supply Line is God-led; we are the hands, feet and voice that He uses; those that contribute through donations of money and items are what keep us going,” they say on the Web site.

Payson packs on pounds at electronic waste event The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality completed the spring phase of its 2012 Free Electronics Waste Recycling Program with a successful event in the parking lot of Payson’s Multi-Event Center on April 28. A total of 166 vehicles from Payson and the surrounding region brought 23,200 pounds of e-waste for recycling. The vehicle total was far more than either of the two previous events that ADEQ sponsored in Payson. A total of 31,000 pounds had been collected at the two earlier e-waste events. Of the 166 motorists bringing e-waste this year, 122 were from Payson; 15 from Pine; seven each from Strawberry and Star Valley; three from Round Valley;

two each from Tonto Basin, Christopher Creek, East Verde and Gisela; and one each from Beaver Valley, Bear Flat, Mesa del Caballo and Whispering Pines. In addition to ADEQ and the Payson Water Department, other co-sponsors were Gila County, Northern Gila County Sanitary District, Town of Star Valley, Pine-Strawberry Water Improvement District, CH2MHill and EWaste Harvesters of Phoenix.  As usual, Payson Water Superintendent Buzz Walker and his staff organized the event, distributing fliers, providing for radio announcements, collecting school district ewaste, providing the venue location and forklift, staffing the event, and serving lunch to the volunteers.

There was plenty to do for the many volunteers who showed up at last Saturday’s free electronic waste recycling event in Payson before E-Waste Harvesters’ crew wrapped the pallets with shrink wrap and a front-end loader prepared to place the pallets on the cargo truck. ADEQ Northeastern Arizona Liaison Byron James, kneeling with the work crew, was among those participating.

PETE ALESHIRE

ROUNDUP EDITOR

The confident 8-year-old sat beside the phlegmatic tape-jawed alligator, summoning his bravado. His little sister with the face of an angel drawn up in a perfect “O” of amazement drew back from the enormous reptile. The boy saw his chance. Affecting nonchalance, the boy patted the long-suffering alligator on the snout and his sister’s eyes widened to full-moon splendor. “It’s OK,” said the brave lad. “You can touch him. He’s afraid of me.” Such vignettes played out all day long Saturday at the Payson Wildlife Fair, which brimmed with enough giant boa constrictors, fierce-eyed golden eagles, tongueflicking monitor lizards, sharpeyed peregrine falcons, ponderous giant tortoises, jaw-taped alligators and poached deer and elk to made any 8-year-old dance with excitement. Hundreds of families wandered through the banquet of booths set up on a perfect spring day in Green Valley Park. At first glance, it appeared a mere strag-

gling of booths — not a roller coaster in sight. But two hours later, the booths had delivered a bonanza of experiences, textures and discoveries that Disneyland would be hard-pressed to match. For instance, the Arizona Herpetological Society brought a trailer full of unnerving vipers and rattlesnakes, but also set up an enclosure where kids could get up close and personal with an alligator or a massive monitor lizard. On another patch of grass, one of the handlers pulled the 12-footlong boa constrictor out of his glass-fronted cage in the display truck and plopped him down on the brilliant green grass. Children clustered around, marveling at the snake’s great girth, his iridescent blue and gold scales, his inexorable slither. They patted him, jumped back from his questing tongue, shivered as he slithered over their little feet, squeaked at the feel of his warm, silk-smooth scales. The day held a treasure chest of wonders, left ajar. Here, the Bighorn Sheep Society used the almost mythological curl of the second biggest set of desert bighorn sheep horns ever found to help promote its long, brilliantly successful effort to stave off extinction for the nimble desert sheep. Arriving settlers nearly exterminated the remarkable creatures, since they tended to pose for hunters on rocky pinnacles. Their habit of taking the high ground and scanning the landscape with binocular vision worked fine on mountain lions but not so well against rifles. The desert sheep can go without water for weeks or months and lose 30 percent of their body weight to dehydration without harm. They went from a single small herd in the Kofa Mountains to about 6,000 animals statewide, thanks to relocation efforts. Just down the way, the nature browsers discovered a vulture, a peregrine falcon, a great horned owl, a night-crowned heron and a Harris hawk, all doing their PR stint as rehab birds brought up from the Adobe Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Phoenix. Turns out Harris hawks mate for life, hunt cooperatively and form extended family groups to raise their children. Black-crowned night herons

The Arizona Game and Fish Department, Town of Payson and several outdoor organizations including the Arizona Herpetological Society this weekend hosted the Wildlife Fair in Green Valley Park, complete with boas, alligators, peregrine falcons, target shooting and giant tortoises.

also willingly raise the chicks of other herons. Great horned owls sit in trees through the long nights hooting, a tactic intended to freak out mice and rabbits so the poor fools make a break for it, crashing through the brush so the owls can zero in. If that doesn’t work, those master predator can always eat a cat. The peregrine falcons are the fastest creatures on the planet, reaching speeds in excess of 220 miles an hour in a dive. They hit their mostly feathered prey so hard with their shock-absorber legs that the impact is almost instantly fatal. One of the great wildlife success stories, the peregrines clawed their way back from extinction once we banned the eggshell thinning pesticide DDT. Then, of course, you have the remarkably adaptable and remarkably repulsive turkey vulture, the bane of bird biologists. They migrate across two conti-

nents, wintering in the tropics and fanning out across the Southwest come summer, when we have enough dead things to sustain their dainty eating habits. They pee on their own legs to cool down and projectile vomit as a defense mechanism, which makes one suspicious of any wildlife biologists who would volunteer to study them. It went on and on like that from one booth to the next. Here — feel — which patch of fur is fox — bobcat — coyote. Ah, here, cast a fishing lure and snag a plastic fish. No, wait, snug into a life vest and paddle out onto Green Valley Lake. Back already? Then come look at the fierce-eyed, hookbeaked red-tailed hawks or hear the story of the poacher who shot a giant elk over his backyard fence. But don’t forget: If there’s a really, really cute girl you want to impress — don’t miss the alligator.

works through varying sentences and speaking to a certain audience. The simple sentences allowed her students to see that writers may use grammar to make a story applicable to the reader. “‘Curious George’ and ‘See Spot’ have application because they have what I want them to see — grammar relevance,” said Van Zile. In her classroom, Van Zile expected accountability from her students to learn the subject, now as an administrator, she applies accountability to the broader responsibilities students have at school. As vice-principal, she handled much of the discipline. She had to create consequences for students with too many unexcused absences as well as those who failed to keep grades up. She does whatever it takes. “She works hard,” said Kerry Wright, one of two administrative secretaries for PHS.

Van Zile even gives up her weekends to help the kids. She started a Saturday School originally to discipline students, but found students came back again and again to get help, have a quiet space to work, a computer and Internet access. “I found I had a lot of repeat customers,” she said. She continues to offer the Saturday School because so many students in Payson don’t get support at home. Advocacy is one of Van Zile’s buzzwords. She wants kids to know it is all right for them to stand up for themselves when there has been a mistake or injustice. “Kids and parents want someone to speak up for them,” said Van Zile, “If the kids know you care, then they care.” A slanted point of view for an administrator hired to keep kids in line, but as Van Zile said, she approaches challenges differently than others.

New PHS principal sees life at a slant meld cultural traditions in the melting pot of American values and beliefs. Her father was the first generation of his family born in the United States. Her mother, on the other hand, was born and raised in Japan. Her father experienced some of the darkest times in U.S. history when he and his family lost everything during World War II. The U.S. government’s policy of interning all those of Japanese heritage decimated her father’s family holdings. After the war, with no property and restricted by laws forbidding them to buy new property, Van Zile’s father and his family went back to Japan hoping to live on the family farm. There, her father met Van Zile’s mother. Her mother remembers seeing the mushroom cloud over Hiroshima, Japan. Despite their bitter wartime experiences, they decided to return to the states. They settled in a suburb of Chicago where Van Zile was born and grew up. It was not easy being an Asian family in a white neighborhood in the Midwest. “I never really fit in,” she said. She thought about becoming an artist, but found she lost interest in projects, getting bored with the need to focus on one medium. A meeting with a counselor helped her to decide to become a teacher. “I was never bored as a teacher — even though I always taught the same subject,” said Van Zile. She never got bored because she endlessly got lost in creating new ways to engage her students. In one high school class, she decided to help her students understand how grammar has relevance by reading the “Curious George” and “See Spot” series. The grammar used for these books is much different from the grammar used for “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” Although quite simple for their grade level, “Curious George” illustrates how grammar

The Forest Service used slurry bombers and helicopters this week to keep a wildfire 21 miles south of Payson from making a run on the small community of Sunflower.

Cress said firefighters on Monday focused on keeping the fire west of the Mount Peeley Road. Initially, “our primary goal was to keep it away from Sunflower,” when the fire was backing down Sycamore Creek. Crews attacked that end of the blaze and it is nowhere near homes, she said. “We are feeling good about that.” Officials are also happy with the number of wildland firefighters on scene. As of Tuesday morning, some 271 personnel were battling the blaze, with more firefighters and equipment on the way. Nationally, Arizona is the hotbed for forest fires currently, which has drawn resources from other, still quiet states. Compare that with last year when a number of wildfires broke out around the same time across the country and an incident management team from Montana was brought in for the Monument Fire in southern Arizona. “There is not a lot of activity in the rest of the country,” Cress said, “which is advantageous for us and we have plenty of people.” Helicopter and air tanker crews are using Payson’s airport as a base camp for refueling and supplies. The airport remains open, said Beth Myers, airport coordinator. The Aero Fair on May 19 has been canceled until next year, however, due to the fire activity, she said. Besides the Sunflower Fire, there are three other wildfires burning in Arizona, including the Gladiator Fire, Bull Flat Fire and Elwood Fire. Cress said the terrain is making the Sunflower Fire especially difficult to fight. “I have hiked in there and it is incredibly steep,” she said. “The biggest challenge is trying to get around safely.” How and where the fire started is still under investigation. Power lines in the area remain threatened, but are still energized. Another, smaller fire south of Rye last week threatened power lines as well. A helium balloon caught in a power line was likely the cause of a brush fire south of Rye Wednesday. Crews quickly extinguished the fire four miles down Old Rye Road, which splits off East Gisela

Forest closure

Tonto National Forest officials have announced a temporary closure of the forest beginning at 8 a.m. today, May 15. Highway 87 will remain open to through traffic. Visit www.inciweb.org for more information. Road just off Highway 87. The fire was reportedly below a line of power lines near a creek and offered firefighters a taste of what was to come. No one could predict how quickly fire season would come, said Payson Fire Chief Marty deMasi. Two weeks ago at a Gila County Fire Chiefs Association dinner, a number of fire officials predicted this year could be one of the worst due to extra dry conditions. Most of Arizona has gotten only about 40 percent of its normal rainfall so far this year. “(Fire season) probably happened a little faster than we figured,” deMasi said. Gladiator Fire

On Monday, deMasi went to Crown King to help on the Gladiator Fire. That fire is currently at 1,500 acres with 0 percent containment. The fire started Sunday and has already burned up two buildings and one trailer near the small mining town. The Red Cross opened a shelter after fire officials ordered a mandatory evacuation of Crown King. deMasi is one of eight fire chiefs around the state who recently underwent training to help facilitate communication during wildland fires. After a number of communication issues last year, the Fire Chiefs Association and State Forestry Division decided a liaison was needed to help bridge the communication gap between a fire management team and local fire departments, deMasi said. Elwood Fire

In eastern Arizona, the Elwood Fire has burned through 1,137 acres on the San Carlos Apache Reservation. There are more than 100 personnel working to contain the lightning-caused blaze. As of Tuesday morning, the Elwood Fire was 5 percent contained.

Lady Horns conclude best season ever with error-plagued loss to team that went on to win state championship BY

MAX FOSTER

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

The Lady Longhorns’ hope of a state softball championship died Friday from the impact of the baffling pitching style of an underdog, but undefeated, Bourgade Catholic softball team. The opposing, lefthanded pitcher’s perplexing mix of off-speed pitches included a rise ball and curve ball. In a state final-four matchup May 11 at Rose Mofford Complex in Phoenix, BC hurler Jackie Aguilar struck out the first four PHS hitters she faced, setting the tone for the Golden Eagles’ 7-2 victory. The loss snapped a By committing six Longhorns’ 16-game winning streak errors, compared to and sent the team packing north on Beeline without just one for the the state championship troGolden Eagles, phy for which they’d longed Payson was its all season. Payson’s sophomore ace own worst enemy. hurler Arianna Paulson nearly equaled Aguilar’s performance, who struck out 14. But Paulson didn’t get as much defensive help from her Lady Horn teammates. By committing six errors, compared to just one for the Golden Eagles, Payson was its own worst enemy. All the miscues produced Bourgade scoring opportunities, including one in the top of the first when the Golden Eagles took a 1-0 lead the Lady Horns could never overcome. Of BC’s seven runs, only one was earned. Paulson also struck out 11 and walked three while pitching all seven innings.

Lady Longhorn leadoff hitter Devann Runzo fouls off a pitch in Payson’s disheartening 7-2 state tournament quarterfinal loss to Bourgade Catholic. With the loss, the Lady Horns wrapped up the season 29-3.

Following the game, BC coach Jinhee Huff told reporters the difference in the game was that the Golden Eagles “capitalized on their (Payson’s) errors.” After whipping Payson, Bourgade went on to win the Division III state title, beating Winslow 7-1 in the finale played May 12 at Mofford. The Bulldogs advanced to the state championship game by upsetting Estrella Foothills in the semifinals. Payson had advanced to the state tournament as the No. 1 seed and Estrella Foothills entered clutching the No. 2 seed, but neither made it to the final game. In the loss to BC, the Lady Horns trailed 5-0 entering the bottom of the fifth, which turned into the only

Armstrong, next up, bunted her way on base pushing Black into scoring position at third base. Then, Payton Petersen — an untested freshman who is the team’s No. 9 hitter — lashed a booming triple to right field that scored both Black and Armstrong to pull the Lady Horns within 5-2. Petersen, however, was left stranded when Devann

PHS golf team’s rally falls just short of championship Defending state champ edges out resurgent Horns BY

MAX FOSTER

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

The Longhorn golf team rallied from a disastrous state tournament opening day to card a second-day 301 — a tally that eventually turned out to be the best team score of the post-season shoot-out. But the come-from-behind effort wasn’t enough to catch defending state champion Yuma Catholic, which won the state title with a two-day total of 617. Payson finished as state runners-up with a 625. Valley Christian placed third at 626 and Phoenix Country Day took fourth at 632. Entering the May 11-12 tournament at Antelope Hills near Prescott, PHS coach Bret Morse was on target with his predictions that the run for the crown would come down to the schools that finished in the top four. At the conclusion of the first day, Yuma Catholic was first with a 313 and Payson was fourth at 324. By improving 23 strokes on the second round, the Horns threw a scare into the defending champs who were eyeing yet another state title. Scottsdale Christian’s Chris Petefish claimed low medalist honors by posting a 71 on the first day and a 70 on the second for a total of 142. Tyler Apps was a model of consistency, finishing with identical scores of 74 on both days for a final tally of 148, which earned him sixth-place laurels. Freshman Dean Harpe placed 14th in the 84-qualifier field with a 156. During the opening round, Harpe struggled to an 81, but improved the following round for a 75. Jeffrey Kelley ended up 17th overall. He also experienced difficulties during round one, finishing with an 80. On day two, he shot a 76 to finish at 156. Anthony Smith was the Payson player who experienced the most difficulties during the opening day. He required 89 shots to finish, his highest score of the season. His 76 on day two resulted in a total of 165, which was good enough for 38th place. The state tournament wrapped up a banner season in which the Longhorns won several tournament titles including a nine-team match at Snowflake, the

River Valley Invitational and the Wickenburg Invitational. A win April 30 in a four-way match at Fountain Hills also made an impressive addition to the Longhorn resume. About the only glitch on the team’s record was a disappointing mid-season defeat to Phoenix Country Day at We Ko Pa near Phoenix.

Payson pole vaulter wins championship PHS track and field team turns in solid performance BY

MAX FOSTER

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

Bo Althoff, the Payson High track and field team’s pole-vaulting coach and the school record holder in the event, is beaming with pride. His satisfaction is the result of having one of his students, Keith Williams, win the Division III state pole vault championship by clearing 14 feet, 3 inches in the finals held May 11 and 12 at Mesa Community College. Just over 20 years ago, it was Althoff being crowned a state champion in the grueling event that requires upper body strength, speed, exceptional coordination and a healthy dose of confidence. While Williams did come up a bit short of the 15 feet Althoff predicts he is capable of vaulting, the state mark was three inches higher than runner-up T.J. Ryan of Sedona. Also in the pole vault, PHS senior Levi Sopeland cleared 13 feet to finish sixth in a field of 16 qualifiers who competed in the event. Williams’ win could earn him invites to several post-season competitions including the Meet of Champions. Among the girl vaulters, Janelle Hauptman cleared 9 feet, 6 inches to tie for seventh place.

Jaymi Carlen tied for 15th with a vault of 8 feet, 6 inches. In the finals of boys high jump, Richard Nielson finished eighth with a leap of 6 feet. By clearing 5 feet 10 inches, Longhorn Morris was 11th. Michael Scott soared 19 feet, 10 inches in the long jump to take 17th in the long jump. The Lady Horns

In the finals of the girls 100-meter dash, Morgan Chilson broke the magical 13-second barrier with a time of 12.97. However, she finished eighth in a star-studded field of qualifiers that included event winner Jasmin Pratt of Estrella Foothills. Pratt was timed in a very fast 12.32. In the 200-meter finals, Chilson placed sixth in 27.17. A pair of qualifiers, Lydia Galster and Sarah Cluff, represented the Lady Horns in the 800-meter field. Galster ran a 2:28.82 to finish ninth overall. Cluff was timed in 2:30.72 and placed 11th. Galster’s time was just over 2:28.67. She ran May 4 and finished second at the Snowflake Invitational. In the 4x400 relay finals, Bailey Patterson, Bethany Sprinkle, Galster and Carlen ran 4:13.56 to take ninth. The foursome of Hauptman, Patterson, Carlen and Chilson placed sixth in the 4x100 varsity preliminaries in 51.73. Just last week at Snowflake, the team ran 51.20 to set a new Payson High School event record.

Garcia sets the PMGA standard BY

MAX FOSTER

ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

Payson Men’s Golf Association member Oscar Garcia turned in the group’s best showing in an individual low net tournament, winning first place in A flight and pocketing closest to the pin money on No. 8 at Payson Golf Course. In finishing first in the May 9 tournament, Garcia carded a tournament low 63. His winning closest to the pin shot was just 3 feet, 4 inches shy of an ace. Also in A flight, Ron Fisher was second with a 67 and Larry Smith posted a 71 to take third. In B flight, Dave Rutter turned in a 65 and took first, outdueling runner-up Roger Poole and Bill Mullins. Poole finished at 66 and Mullins had a 71. Closest to the pin winners included Jesse Smith (No. 2; 30 feet and No. 14; 3 feet, 9 inches), Bill Shedd (No. 5; 10 feet, 4 inches) and former Scottsdale Coronado basketball coach Herb Sherman (No. 17; 3 feet, 9 inches). In a Saturday tournament for PMGA members who cannot make the traditional Wednesday morning frays, Jesse Smith teamed up with Virgil Cly for a net 58 and first place in a two-man best ball formatted event. Russ Morris and Phil Wager were second with a net 59. Posting a 61, Frank Szakal and Rick Korth were third. Russ Morris was a closest to the pin winner on two holes — a feat Sherman refers to as “double

dipping.” One of his double dips was almost an ace. It occurred on No. 8 where Morris’ tee shot rolled to within one foot of the hole. On No. 14, his lie of 6 feet, 11 inches wasn’t nearly as close but was good enough to earn him prize money. Mike Eilenfeldt (No. 2; 11 feet, 3 inches), John Calderwood (No 5; 5 feet, 9 inches) and Dave Herbert (No. 17; 1 foot, 6 inches) were also closest to the pin winners. On April 25 at PGC, members gathered for a “team select drive” formatted shoot-out that was won by Terry Lindsey, Bill Shedd, Steve Vincent, Benny Burns and Mike Eilenfeldt. The team finished with a 246. With a 254, Tim Ernst, Jack Proetio, Randy Wood and Sherman were second. Don Shepard, Ed Flores, Roger Poole and Spenser Roth posted a 257 and took home the bronze. Trailing the field with a 280 was the foursome of Terry Gaden, Jack Greenshield, Pope Clay and Morris. Doug Magnuson added his name to Sherwood’s list of double dippers, winning closest to the pin laurels on No. 5 and No. 8. On five, he was 9 feet, 9 inches away and on No. 8 he was 10 feet, 10 inches shy of the flag. Doug Talbot (No. 14; 8 feet, 11 inches), Ralph Lindo (No. 17; 8 feet, 2 1/2 inches) and Eilenfeldt (No. 2; 9 feet, 9 inches) also won closest to the pin prize money.

PAYSON ROUNDUP SPORTS TUESDAY, MAY 15, 2012

8B

Lady Horns finish with 29-3 record From page 1B

Max Foster/Roundup

Lady Longhorn players kneel solemnly while emergency medical personnel treat Bourgade infielder Victoria Ortiz who was knocked unconscious after colliding with a teammate at the Rose Mofford Complex left field fence while chasing down a foul pop up. Ortiz suffered facial injuries and was down for about 15 minutes but eventually rose and trotted off the field.

Enrollment now open for swim lessons

Keith Schrader Heart Patient Flagstaff, Ariz.

KEITH SCHRADER IS MORE THAN A SMILING FACE behind Flagstaff Medical Center’s volunteer desk – for years, he has been a caring friend to countless patients and staff. So, when Keith suffered a series of heart issues, the physicians at the Heart & Vascular Center of Northern Arizona stepped in. Interventional cardiologists Eric Cohen, M.D., and Omar Wani, M.D., and cardiothoracic surgeon Steven Peterson, M.D., provided extensive treatment including two heart catheterizations, a quadruple coronary artery bypass and an aspirin desensitization process.

From page 1B Also at Taylor, adult group swim will be held 6 to 7 a.m. Monday through Thursday. The fee is $30 per month. Public swims are set for 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. What is EVO?

EVO Swim School and its owner David Tait took over management of Taylor Pool in the spring of 2010. In previous years, the town parks and recreation department managed Taylor throughout the summer, but when Tait made an effort to assume the duties, the town jumped at the opportunity. Just before taking over, Tait said he believed EVO would save the town about $65,000 in costs, release a full-time employee, then Special Events Coordinator Deb Rose, for other duties, all the while improving the level of swim lesson instruction and streamlining the operations to be more efficient. The success Tait has had at EVO in Gilbert and the past two years at Taylor seems to bear out his promises. EVO, at its Gilbert location, is an evolutionary learn-to-swim facility that offers instruction to infants, children, competitive swimmers and adults. Tait says EVO’s primary goal is to teach children to be safe around water. As instruction progresses, he says, new techniques are introduced with an emphasis on fun, safety, physical fitness and finally competitive swimming. An aspect of EVO that might strike home with parents fed up with their children playing video games is that children begin to understand the value of physical work and the persistence needed to succeed. Tait says that challenge creates an inward satisfaction not obtained in video games. Based on Tait’s resume, he holds the pedigree needed to be a top-notch instructor. He was a three-time state champion, a state record holder, a junior national champion, senior national qualifier and a competitor at the 2000 U.S. Olympic trials. He also coached several high school swimmers to state, junior national and national success.

Runzo struck out swinging and Megan Wessel flied out. In that inning, umpires halted play for about 15 minutes after Bourgade infielder Victoria Ortiz collided with an outfielder, then bounced off the left field fence while chasing down a foul pop up. Ortiz was knocked unconscious and suffered injuries to the side of her face. She, however, eventually rose and trotted off the field, receiving good sportsmanship applause from Lady Longhorn players who kneeled solemnly on the infield while paramedics and trainers treated Ortiz. In retrospect, Bourgade salted away the win in the third inning, insuring themselves of playing for the state crown. After BC loaded the bases with a 10 lead, Paulson walked in a run, which set the stage for an Ortiz grounder that bounced past the PHS shortstop and centerfielder. The bounding ball scored three more runs to push the Golden Eagles’ lead to 5-0. In the top of the sixth, Bourgade tacked on two insurance runs off a bunt and another Payson throwing miscue. While the Longhorns did not win the state championship most wanted so desperately, the squad wrapped up the campaign with a 29-3 record — the best in the program’s 25-year history. With the season at an end, players will now await coaches’ voting for the All-Division III team. Also, some PHS players will continue their softball pursuits by playing off-season club ball.

Today, Keith is volunteering again and even helping provide emotional support to other FMC heart patients. To learn more about Keith story, log onto NAHeartCare.com.
