  The Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce and Rip’s NAPA Store will present the Fall Festival and the K Town Car Show on Saturday, Nov. 18, beginning at 9 a.m. The car show is best appreciated in the morning, when all the cars will be present. There will be all sorts of events, food and music. The Fall Festival will continue into the afternoon with many other attractions. Invite your out-of-town friends so they can see for themselves what the Copper Basin towns can do.

  The San Pedro Valley Lions Club in Mammoth is celebrating its 70th anniversary as a chartered member of Lions International. The club has sponsored Bingo games every Wednesday for a long time. On Wednesday, Nov. 15, there will be special Bingo games and other prizes, and five turkeys will be given away. All people who bring canned goods or non-perishable food items will get one free caller’s choice card. There will be no Bingo on Nov. 22 in observance of Thanksgiving.

Dave Orzell signs an agreement passing the maintenance of the Kearny Clinic to the Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center.

  With the long-awaited signing of formal documents, Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center in Globe is making a secure investment in the future of the Kearny Clinic. The Copper Community Health Care Foundation owns the land and buildings, and in the new agreement with CVRMC the Kearny Clinic will assume responsibility for all insurances, the maintenance and cleaning of the buildings and grounds, and the securing of new tenants. A percentage of revenue will be given to the Foundation for its work. The board of the foundation is to be commended for charting a strong relationship with the hospital, assuring good health care for the Copper Basin.

  The Las Vegas shootings affected the whole nation, and we truly felt it personally in the Copper Basin. Now there has been a mass shooting at a small Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. I’m a gun owner. A man in Texas used his rifle to come to the aid of the church people in Texas. These are simple facts. Now, can we take these facts, as well as those from many other tragic events in this nations, and begin to fashion the end to such tragedies? To tell the truth, I don’t know how to begin the dialogue that we all need. I’m tired of praying to God for the dead and injured. I’m praying now that their sacrifice will never be needed again.
