On this date, Lance Corporal Lawrence Short, USMC, assisted by Sgt. Robert Delsi of the Marine Corps League arrived at our Fire Station shortly before Noon on this Hallowed Christmas Eve to collect the Bin and any contents under the “Toys for Tots” program. After arriving to find an empty bin outside and immediately describing the lackluster support received so far in collecting other bins from various locations in and around Casa Grande, they were simply amazed and in disbelief by the fact we had the best turnout from residents in the Signal Peak area as we had been routinely sequestering all of the toys, and bicycles, inside the Fire Station for safe keeping until collection.

A former chief investigator for the Pinal County Attorney's Office who was fired after County Attorney Lando Voyles took office has received a $100,000 settlement. The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that a multi-county insurance pool agreed last summer to the settlement with James McCormack. He was one of many office employees discharged shortly after Voyles took office Dec. 29, but a county commission later ruled on an appeal by McCormack that he was a merit-protected employee.

An early-morning fire destroyed this mobile home in Apache Junction on Tuesday. A family lost all it had after a fire destroyed a mobile home in Apache Junction early Tuesday morning. The fire broke out on one end of the mobile home around midnight, and nine members of the family were left without a home, said Brian Gomez of the Grand Canyon Chapter of the American Red Cross.

A final Apache Junction Fire District 2012-2013 budget of $18,105,479 was approved on a 3-1 vote at a July 3 Fire Board of Directors meeting with Director Todd House casting the dissenting vote and Director Linda Shank absent from the meeting. Following House’s “nay” vote on the budget, Clerk of the Board Mike Weaver stated, “Let the record note that Mr. House has participated in formulating this budget. Perhaps his ‘no’ vote was done for political reasons?”

My Friends, It has been more than four years since we first met on the campaign trail.  In that time we’ve experienced a lifetime of adventure, success, failure, passion, compromise, satisfaction and disappointment.  To you all, I say “Thank you.”  Thank you for giving me the honor of serving as your representative in the democratic process.  

Dallas has Billy Bob's. And in a couple weeks, Florence will have Moonshine Willy's. Owner Harry Luge Sr. described the $1 million, multi-use entertainment facility as "the largest honky-tonk in the state." "We have the real deal," Luge said. "This is a real...

A newly married Florence couple made an appearance on NBC's "Today" show after swirling billows of dust blanketed their wedding last month. Gus and Jennifer Luna in Florence got married outdoors on Sept. 10. A slight breeze blew through the ceremony at the beginning of the nuptials, but within a couple of minutes, unrelenting wind and dust was pounding the bride and groom, swirling her veil in circles as a bridesmaid attempted to hold it down. The groom, meanwhile, was trying to rub the dirt out of his eyes.

An Administrative Law Judge delayed the start of the administrative evidentiary hearing with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, to March 18, 2014 because Florence Copper Inc. failed to timely produce actual test data and interpretive reports from a prior in-situ leach pilot test.  The 15-day evidentiary hearing had been set to begin on November 18th.  Appellants including the Town of Florence, Southwest Value Partners, Johnson Utilities, and Pulte Homes had repeatedly requested this critical data for several months.  Florence Copper Inc. (FCI), formerly known as Curis Resources (Arizona), filed a motion to block production of this real-world data.  The judge denied FCI’s efforts to keep this data hidden and ordered that it be fully disclosed.  

In July 2010, less than 2 years ago, Florence Community Healthcare, a 23-bed hospital in Pinal County, opened its doors to provide care for the town's residents. Prior to the facility opening its doors, residents were forced to travel to Casa Grande or Phoenix for treatment. This week however, the same healthcare facility closed its doors and moved its patients to other healthcare facilities.

On December 3, 2013, the Town of Florence was served with a claim for damages by Florence Copper, Inc., formerly known as Curis Resources (Arizona) Inc. The claim is based entirely on an allegation that Curis has the right to conduct mining operations, involving the injection of billions of gallons of sulfuric acid into the drinking water supply, on residentially zoned property in the geographic heart of Florence.  The Town disputes that Curis has any legal right to conduct such operations on residentially zoned land, regardless of the impact to the aquifer.  

February 3, 2014 is a date etched in the memory of County Recorder Virginia Ross. It is the day the elections building on Main Street in Florence was destroyed by a massive fire. Everything was gone, from elections tabulation equipment to furniture. Nothing was saved.

On Wednesday night, five members of law enforcement from Pinal County received awards from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) of Southern Arizona and were recognized for their dedication to curbing drunk and impaired driving on Arizona's roadways.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office with the assistance of the Phoenix Police Department, the Pinal County Attorney’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations in Douglas now have five suspects in custody for murder and are looking for a sixth suspect who has a warrant for his arrest for murder.

So how successful was the rodeo? The December 2, 1932, issue of the Arizona Blade-Tribune reported that $53 had been raised to benefit the Milk Fund and other local relief measures. No attendance figures were given but the headlines in this issue of the newspaper said that the “Sunday Rodeo Event Drew A Big Crowd ....”...

May 3rd, 2012 was a dynamic day for Pinal County, the Town of Florence and the surrounding areas. The first Pongamia Tree sustainable biofuel demonstration site in Arizona was presented to the community, thanks to a partnership between Johnson Utilities and TerVivia BioEnergy. Looking out over 15 acres, you could see small trees planted a few feet apart from each other, filling up rows and rows of land.

In a huge blow to foreign mining company Curis, the Florence Town Council voted unanimously to deny the Florence Copper Project, with all seven council members stating that the proposed Curis Mine would not serve the best interests of Florence residents in the short or long term, and that even if Curis should secure additional permitting, the proposed mine would dramatically negatively alter the character of Florence, be in violation of past commitments and too risky to proceed with.   In denying the request, to a clapping and cheering audience, Mayor Kivlinger commented that the oath of office she swore was to promote the best interests of the Town of Florence and that the “oath doesn’t mention providing out of state people with jobs.”
