Wednesday, June 8, 2011 /00,SARCO: Helping in the Community where we live and work It's all about supporting a great program and keeping something positive going in the community. "The ROTC program is good for our community and our country," said Joe Wilhelm, General Manager ofAsareo's Hayden Operations. Wilhelm was on hand last week to present the Ray High School Junior ROTC program a check for $10,000. The contribution will help to enable Ray Unified School District #3 Governing Board to maintain the JROTC program. The Ray High School Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program has been in existence since 1978 and is the second oldest JROTC unit in Arizona. Currently, there are 37 cadets enrolled in the program. Several cadets are from the Superior, Hayden and Mammoth communities. The cadets travel across the state performing and competing in drill meets, shooting competitions, and parades. The cadets are also involved in many civic and charity projects in Kearny as well as neighboring communities. "The Ray High School R.O.T.C. Program has been a vital part of our school/ community for many years," said Keamy Municipal Court Judge and former Ray High School Principal Dave Orzell. "They have donated a great deal of time and effort in supporting school/community projects. The program is currently struggling to survive due to changes in funding for small rural programs. ASARCO's generous donation will allow the program to continue for the near lture, but additional support will be needed to ensure the future of this unique program. ASARCO is to be commended for recognizing,the importance of this program to our community." Superior Sun, Superior, Arizona Page 3 I Accepting a mighty big check from Joe Wilhelm (General Mgr.

The nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization administers the national office (Center for Youth Ethics) of CHARACTER COUNTS! This is an approach to character education that "reaches millions of youth," according to the site." The program, which includes By Cindy Tracy "Bullying Stops Here!" That's a phrase that hits the eye rather quickly in scanning the website of the Josephson Institute, 000000ouncil swears in three anti-bullying, formed part of a discussion at the June 1 meeting of the Superior school board. The board was addressing an agenda item about possibly bringing a program to the district to deal with bullying. Superintendent/Principal Pete Guzman brought up CHARACTER COUNTS! and how it had been used in the past in the district, He said teachers had told him it was effective. He also said the Arizona School Boards Association, which fumishes policies for boards to consider that comply with current laws, would be coming out with a new policy on bullying. The board conferred on a number of programs addressing bullying. No decision was made by the board. They directed Guzman to bring back additional information. CHARACTER COUNTS'! bases its programs on six ethical values that it says "everyone can agree on, values that are not political, religious, or culturally biased." The pillars are trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

(Taylor Sheaffer Ritter photo) Sheriff warns of Affordable, Independent Living For Seniors Age 62+ possible phone scams On June 1 and 2, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office received two calls related to a "Publishers' Clearing House" phone seam. Citizens are reminded not to fall prey to these seams by giving out personal information over the phone. The first call we received regarding this seam was on June 1. The caller who lives in San Manuel stated that she received a phone call from an individual and felt it was a seam. The victim received a phone call and the male subject on the other end of the line stated she had won money from "Publishers' Clearinghouse." The victim was told she needed to give the caller her credit card information so they could release the money to her. The victim put her husband on the phone who also refused to give their credit card information. The caller then made threats to come over to their residence in 15 minutes and hurt them if they did not give him their credit card information. The victims hung up and called 9-1-1. The second call received regarding this seam was on June 2. The caller who lives in SaddleBrooke stated that she received a phone call from an individual and she felt it was seam. The victim received the phone call from somebody who identified himself as an "FBI Agent." The individual stated that her mother had won money from "Publishers' Clearing House" but the money was in Spain and she needed to wire $3,000 by "Western Union" to receive the money her mother had won. The victim questioned the authenticity of the information. The caller told the victim she could call the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and verify it through the Region Lieutenant. After she hung up the phone with the caller, an individual called her and said he was a Lieutenant with the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and he verified the information to be true regarding her winning the money, The victim went to Western Union and wired $3,000 per the caller's request. The vie'tim still had a bad feeling about this so she called the Pimil County Sheriff's Office and asked to speak with the Lieutenant she spoke with earlier. She was connected with the Lieutenant who supposedly called her before. The Lieutenant was not the same individual and told the victim it was a seam. The victim was able to quickly cancel the wire transfer and was able to get her money back. All of the calls came from blocked lines which could not be. traced. Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, "Telephone seams have been around for decades but scammers are still finding new twists to trick consumers. Thebest way to protect yourself is to know the difference between legitimate offers and fraudulent ones." How Can You Protect Yourself? Don't bepressured to make an immediate decision. Don't give your credit card; checking account, or Social Security number to unknown callers. Don 'tpayfor something merely because you'll get a 'free gift." Get all information in writing , before you agree to buy. Check out a charity before you give. Ask how much of your dohation actually goes to the charity. Ask that written information be sent to you so you can make an informed giving decision. Don't investyour money with an unknown caller who insists you make up your mind immediately. If the offer is an investment, check with your state securities regulator to see if it's properly registered. Don't send cash by messenger or overnight mail. If you use cash rather than a credit card in the transaction, you may lose your right to dispute fraudulent charges. Make sure you know the per minute charge for any 900-number call you make. Don't agree to any offer where you have to pay a "registration" or "shipping fee" to receive a prize or a gift. If you have to pay, it's a purchase -- not a prize or agift. Don't confirm your account information over the phone or by email. Some callers have your billing information before they call you. They're trying to get you to say "okay" so they can claim you approved a charge. Check out unsolicited offers with the Better Business Bureau, local consumer protection agency, or state Attorney General's office before you agree to send money. BeWare of offers to "help" you recover money you may have lost previously. Be wary of callers saying, they are law enforcement officers who will help you get your money back 'for a fee." Don't be afraid to say "no thanks" and hang up the phone If you don't want a business to call you again, say so. If they call back, they're breaking the law.
