The role of Cornish Miners in the development of early Globe and Miami is well-known. However, many of their stories went untold. We have unearthed the tale of two brothers that has a haunting significance to events today.
Globe is a city steeped in Wild West history. Nestling close to the majestic peaks of the Pinal Mountains, and a scenic 90 minutes drive from Phoenix, the city can trace its origins back to the 12th century when the area was first settled by the Salado tribe of Native Americans. In those times it was known as Besh-Ba-Gowah, which translates to “the place of metal”.
Having spent much of her life in Globe and Miami, caring for the sick and elderly as an RN, Robin had a powerful affinity for the people and the area that lent itself well when later in life she became involved in writing a book that would feature those very places.
With the boom in copper mining around the start of the last century, the Globe and Miami area saw a large influx of miners from foreign shores, and in particular from the old copper and tin mining communities of Cornwall in England.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
MY HEROES – GLOBE FIRE DEPT
I am a volunteer for Wild At Heart – a rescue, rehab and release organization for birds of prey. I wanted to give recognition and praise to your outstanding fire department for saving the life of a baby owl today. They rescued it from a chimney where it had been trapped for at least 3 days. The homeowner did what he could to free the bird but was unsuccessful. The owl was covered in soot and a little dehydrated but will probably be fine. I also would like to recommend that everyone who has a fireplace put screening over the top of it, to prevent birds from becoming trapped.
Advice from Wild At Heart:
1) Please ensure that your chimneys are covered with wire mesh small enough that a bird or other creature cannot get through it and fall into the chimney.
2) Call Wild At Heart at 480-595-5047 if you find a raptor (owl, hawk, falcon, eagle) that needs to be rescued.
