Globe Leaders go to Washington

Washington, DC — Globe City Council members Mayor Al Gameros, Mariano Gonzales, Fernando Shipley, Jesse Leetham and Freddy Rios spent five days in Washington DC attending the National League of Cities Conference for the first time in our cities history. Also attending were City Manager Paul Jepson and Economic & Community Development Director Linda Oddonetto. The conference provided vital information and access to the millions of dollars of infrastructure funding available.

With the coordination of the city’s Washington Lobbyist, personal meetings were arranged with Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Senator Mark Kelly, Congressman Eli Crane, Congressman Greg Stanton, Congressman Rubén Gallego, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the USDA. We were able to make personal presentations in their offices on seven city projects in the amount of $16 million. We have already been guaranteed $3 million. We want to thank our amazing staff, who prepared all the documents used in our presentations.

Miami, Az — A recent donation by the Desert Fox Van Dyke Company to the Town of Miami paves the way for the Town to move forward in restoring the historic Keystone Stairs. 

After receiving a CDBG grant of $196,590 for repair and restoration work on the stairs, the town discovered the stairs sat on property owned by Desert Fox.   Elmer Stewart, the President/CEO Copper Fox Metals stepped up to work with the town in securing the rights to the property so this bit of Miami history could be preserved. 

The Keystone Stairs have been an iconic fixture in Miami since 1915 when they were first built to enable miners and residents to go down to the town’s central business district. 

The Stairs have been the site of friendly competition as locals and visitors have tested their endurance in climbing the 155 stairs and made famous by countless photographers who include them in their images from this area.

Bullion Plaza lecture series returns April 14

The Bullion Plaza lecture series will feature wildlife biologist Amanda Moors speaking about her work with the Mexican Spotted Owl.

Bullion Plaza is proud to announce the return of their lecture series, kicking off this month with a presentation by Amanda Moors, wildlife biologist, on her work with the Mexican Spotted Owl. 

Moors has spent nearly three decades covering south-central Arizona from the Apache-Sitgreaves forest to the Sky Island ranges in the borderlands. She will share photos and videos and explain what it takes to survey these rare birds, their life cycle, and their adaptation to the forest fires that have plagued Arizona.

Her research of the spotted owls—a protected species—is used by land managers and wildlife agencies to aid in conservation. 

The Second Friday lecture will be held at the museum on April 14 at 6 p.m. 

Copper City Players presents Spring Play

The Copper Cities Community Players present their spring production, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Performances on May 12, 13, 19, and 20 at 7 p.m., with a matinee performance on May 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 ea and may be purchased in advance (recommended) or at the door. 

“An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life-un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves a champion! At least the losers get a juice box.”  Music Theater International

“A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. The small cast and unit set make this a perfect option for high schools or community theatres. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favorite.” Music Theater International
