A Brophy College Preparatory senior died Tuesday after suffering a severe brain injury when he was struck by a car during a 24-hour endurance relay race over the weekend.
Robert Mayasich, 18, died at 12:20 p.m. at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center three days after he was airlifted in critical condition from the darkness of Arizona 74 just west of Lake Pleasant.
Dear Family/Friends of Rob M.:
I am truly saddened by Rob's death. I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you. If there is anything that I can do to help you in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact me. I cannot possibly imagine the shock and sorrow that has been thrust on your family as well.
My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you.
With deepest sympathy,
Aya hand-makes each piece herself, and if properly cared for (care card comes with your earrings), you will have them for YEARS! Her oldest pair is approaching it's 4th birthday...

Robbie's family & friends~ I know it has to be difficult to move forward and I have you always uplifted in our prayers.
I grew up in/around that area...I wish Ed Debvic's was still around but we went to AJ's and I had a yummy build my own salad & John had a delicious healthy breakfast. I love AJ's...It was a nice time to revisit ol' stomping grounds. You gotta love this state...

When driving through Congress, a stop at The 01’ Congress Trading Post, located along Highway 89, can be well worth the time. Though the store is not open for business, owner Ed Gregory is usually there and will treat a visitor to a tour of his gun museum, share some of his philosophies and maybe a decorated bag of his “top-grade bull~*#&!~ (B.S.), complete with instructions on how to avoid it in life. He acquires the manure from the local dairy, mixes it with stones and grinds it, because, according to Ed, “everything is better when it’s stone ground.”
When Ed arrived in Congress he noticed there was no mayor.
“I called ‘Election!’ and nobody showed up so I appointed myself — that’s part of the B.S.,” he exclaimed with a mischievous grin. “As mayor of Congress I did absolutely nothing for 20 years, and the town has gone along pretty good. Now they want to form a board and we’ll see the ‘bull’ hit the fan!”
Originally from Colorado, Ed and his wife Anita (“Annie”) moved to the area in 1983, when Annie, a physician’s assistant, was hired by Standard Oil of Indiana to work for the hospital in the company-owned (Phelps Dodge) town of Bagdad. Annie retired in September after 23 years of service and will continue at the clinic on a part-time basis.
“I was going to retire, but ended up staying on part-time,” said Annie. “My patients are so loyal — they’re like family.”
The couple met in the Philippines while Ed served in the Navy during the Korean War. He met Annie through a USO program, and after dating for more than a year, they married.
Annie came to the United States as a registered nurse, but after nursing for 21 years, went back to school to earn a degree as a PA.
In July 2007, Ed and Annie will celebrate fifty years of marriage.
“There’s not many women who would have kept a guy like me around that long,” joked Ed with a grin.
There are many fascinating things to see at the trading post, but the most intriguing is the gun museum, where Ed displays antique guns dating from the 1700s.
Born from parents who were historians in Ouray, Colo, Ed is both fascinated and educated where antique guns are concerned.

in one of the earlier race photos, you see local bag lady & I wrote she began Bingo; etc. I was misinformed; assumed wrong. Local "CS" began the cancer group & bingo evolved with the promotion & carrying the project on by "DC" & others but it was not local bag lady's baby. I also hope bingo still carries on & does not dissolve yet I am not going to help make it possible. For local folks, the board has changed and they are just creating new avenues and projects...for instance as you seen in this week's Wickenburg Sun they are looking for recipes to make a community cookbook. Please stop by the health resource center for more details. Everyone, have a fantastic weekend...I am pulling weeds & doing yard work & going to visit our buddy GS who is in ICU...Hope "FS/GS/CS" are ok...good day to you all~
