This is in addition to 2 percent cuts that weremade earlier in 2015.Even with a higher budget than last year, PinalCounty’s share of every dollar on a resident’s tax billhas dropped from 31 percent in 2011 to only 25 percentin the current year. Other entities that are on thetax bill include local school districts, Central ArizonaCollege, Cities and Towns along with other locally taxingdistricts.Chamber ChatSUPERIOR, ARIZONACHAMBER OF COMMERCE“LIKE” US ONPinal County residents will continue to seeimprovements on several projects.

6 Superior Sunwww.copperarea.comJune 10, 2015Simple precautions by motorists can prevent wildfires;ADOT provides tips for drivers to reduce wildfire dangerAs temperatures heat up, the ArizonaDepartment of Transportation is asking driversto take extra precautions to prevent roadsidewildfires.Low humidity, high winds and hottemperatures are a dangerous combination thatcan lead to the rapid spread of wildfires. Morethan 50 percent of wildfires in Arizona arehuman caused according to the Arizona StateForestry Division.“We are all responsible for preventingwildfires. Drivers should take a few extraprecautions to prevent roadside fires fromigniting,” according to Arizona State ForesterJeff Whitney. “It can be as simple as ensuringyour trailer tow chains are secure and notdragging on the ground.”ADOT suggests motorists follow these tips toprevent wildfires along Arizona’s roadways: Avoid driving or parking your vehicle in tallgrass. Never throw a lighted cigarette out of avehicle. When pulling a trailer, attach safety chainssecurely; loose chains can drag on thepavement and cause sparks, igniting roadsidefires. Look behind you before driving away fromfire-sensitive locations such as areas withtall grass or campsites to check for signs of adeveloping fire. Observe “Red Flag” fire weather warnings.These warnings are issued when weatherconditions are conducive to the easy start andrapid spread of wildfires. Always use a spark arrestor on internalcombustion engines.Drivers should also remember these tips whendriving through smoke from wildfires: Drive with lights on low beam. High beamswill reflect back off the smoke and can reduceyour visibility even more. Look out for slow-moving and parkedvehicles. Other cars may be traveling slowly dueto reduced visibility. Emergency vehicles maybe parked along the side of the road. Increase the distance between your vehicleand the vehicle in front of you. Don’t rush orspeed to get out of the smoke. If you’re having trouble seeing the roadway,use the right edge of the pavement or thepainted edge line stripe as a guide.For more on wildfires, visit, thestate’s online source for real-time emergencyupdates, preparedness and hazard information.Another source for wildfire information, which is supported by acollaboration of federal and state agencies.Thank You From The Superior Little LeagueThe Superior Little League Board would like to thank the following sponsors, coaches andvolunteers for their generous donations of time, resources and money.These supporters assisted over 150 athletes for the 2015 Season.SPONSORS:Resolution Copper MiningDBacks Youth Jersey ProgramRed Bear OutfittersOMYA5D MiningAlonzo FamilyAnderson RentalsAnonymous/Boeing EmployeesBarreras FamilyIra HollenbeckSommer FamilyArizona Water CompanyBruce & Tweedy ArmitageCapstone - Pinto Valley MineCarlota Copper CompanyCementationSuperior Chamber of CommerceFreeport McMoRanIn Memory of Raul & CatalinaSanchezIrene Morris, His & Her HairKnights of ColumbusLos HermanosNavarrette FamilySuperior Optimist ClubPorters CaféSouthwest GasSuperior Unified School DistrictLouie RabagoConestoga RoversSuperior EnvironmentalSolutionsNative EnvironmentalIn Memory of Art “Jap” RamirezSuperior SunCOACHES:Robby RealJoseph NavarroJulian NavarroSonia EstaticoSteve EstaticoMichael AlonzoFrank SanchezNathan DuarteBrian OatisJaneen DuarteRichard TonerLouie PeraltaElias OlmosTommy LopezKristina LopezAlicia Santa CruzRobert SommerCathy SommerRudy JimenezRandi VillegasCharlie PachecoLupe TamayoTyler AllisonJoseph LopezFonso DuarteRuben DelgadoSivanna LopezChella PreciadoTheresa SestiagaIra HollenbeckMireya HollenbeckDesiree QuirozSteve LopezToni LopezEdwardo LopezFelicia CamposJose LiraMiranda DavisPhalicitee ThomasUMPIRES & VOLUNTEERS:Joseph Diaz-GonzalezEric FritzAustin NavarretteAndrew LopezSammy LopezGage CruzMario LopezJoseph LopezPaul RabagoBruno GodinezJesse LopezGabriel CastilloDiaz-Gonzalez FamilyCasillas FamilySommer FamilyEstatico FamilyAlonzo FamilyNavarrette FamilyArmida DenogeanBrittney DenogeanRosemary SanchezFrank SanchezWilliam SanchezNellie PerezKelli CardenasDee RabagoMark RabagoPatricia EspinozaNathan TaylorTerry VillaverdeLucy FritzMs. MooreMs. Rua-BerdineAkira Deno
