    Donna Doreen Haro McGilvary, 61, passed away due to heart failure on Aug. 24, 2018 in Springfield, Missouri. Donna was a homemaker, a babysitter, and enjoyed crafting. She is survived by her partner, Marty Flores; brother, Joey Haro; and sisters, Susie, Dianna and Yvonne. Our baby Sister Donna was loved by so many, especially by her many nieces, nephews and god children. She truly loved all her family and friends and loved calling everyone, especially on their birthdays, which she never forgot. We will truly miss her weekly, sometimes daily calls just to tell us she loved us. Heaven has another Angel. Services for Donna will be held at Gorman-Scharpf Funeral Home, 1947 East Seminole Springfield Missouri 65804 on Thursday, Aug. 30, at 4 p.m. A celebration of our baby sister’s life will take place, at a later date, in Arizona. She will be buried in Superior.

    Most of the national news has already begun to focus on the 2020 Presidential Election, almost as if the 2018 Mid-Term elections have been finalized. Voters across Arizona will head to the polls on Tuesday, November 6th to cast their votes for many state wide and local offices. The last day to register to vote in the upcoming elections is Tuesday, Oct. 9. Early ballots will be mailed on Oct. 10. The last day to request an absentee ballot is Friday, Oct. 26, 2018. Governor Doug Ducey will face Democratic candidate David Garcia. Arizona will be electing its first female United States Senator as Kirsten Sinema the Democratic candidate will face Martha McSally the Republican contender. Congressional District One, Congressman Tom O’Halleran will run against Republican Wendy Rodgers to keep his seat. For the Copper Corridor, the Legislative District 8 Senate and House of Representative seats will be up for election. Senator Frank Pratt will run against Sharon Girard who won the Democratic spot on the ballot. She is from the Eloy area. Rep. TJ Shope and Rep. David Cook, both Republicans, will be running against Carmen Casillas and Linda Gross – both are Democrats out of Globe. Countywide, one of the biggest contests locally was the race for Justice of the Peace for District 5. With the combination of the JP Courts, Judge Larry Bravo of the Superior/Kearny Court faced Judge Arnold Estrada from the Mammoth/San Manuel Court. With all votes cast, the Democratic voters of the combined JP District 5 which now spans from Oracle to Superior elected Judge Arnold Estrada; he will face Republican Judge Nancy Discher from the Oracle/SaddleBrooke court.

If you are interested in listening to the candidates and attending the luncheon, please contact Sue Anderson at 602-625-3151.
