Buckeye police arrest man on child sex charges

Buckeye police arrested a 22-year-old Glendale man Nov. 17 for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old Buckeye girl, officials said.

Ivan Gamboa was taken into custody by police after the girl told her parents that he picked her up from a Buckeye school on Nov. 13 and took her to a park, where he allegedly kissed and fondled her, the booking reports show.

Gamboa knew the girl and her family, police said.

The girl told police that she and Gamboa had been talking over text message and Facebook. Gamboa had allegedly sent text messages asking the girl to send him “sexy pictures” of herself so he knew she was alone when she was talking to him, police said.

Pavement improvement project under way on I-10 west of SR85

The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan for up to 15 minutes of extra travel time if they’re driving between the Salome Highway and State Route 85 along Interstate 10 while the highway undergoes a pavement improvement project.

Work crews began making spot pavement improvements along the 32-mile section of I-10 on Nov. 17.

The work will take place between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. weekdays. The interstate will be narrowed to one lane in both directions in 10-mile increments, and the speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph in work zones.

No work is scheduled on the weekends or holidays.

The $730,000 pavement preservation project is scheduled to be complete by the end of the year.

For updated highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center at www.az511.gov or call 511.

Former Avondale teacher arrested on child sex charges

A former Avondale teacher is expected to be extradited from Hawaii within a month to face five sexual misconduct charges with a minor, Avondale police said.

A warrant was issued Oct. 20 for Deborah Nicholson-Hoshiyama, 45, after a former student came forward with more information about an alleged sexual relationship she had with him while she was teaching at an Avondale elementary school around 2008, said Sgt. Brandon Busse, a spokesman for the Avondale Police Department.

The police had investigated Nicholson-Hoshiyama when the allegations first surfaced in 2008, but the case had been marked as inactive when the boy could not provide enough evidence to investigators, Busse said.

Residents protest designation

‘Slum and blight’ part of Tolleson redevelopment plan
 

Tolleson residents packed a public hearing Monday to protest areas of the city being deemed as “slum and blight.”

The label is part of a redevelopment plan for both residential and commercial property, which was approved that night by the City Council in a five to one vote. Vice Mayor Linda Laborin was absent.

About 60 residents in attendance objected to the designation, saying it’s offensive and will lower their property values.

A redevelopment plan was needed so Tolleson can sell its land on the northeast corner of 91st Avenue and Van Buren Street. The sale was approved by voters in the Nov. 4 election, but the city can’t put out a request for proposals unless the plot is located in a redevelopment area.

Mall delayed again

Goodyear City Council approves 2nd amendment; pushes Estrella Falls’ opening date to 2021
 

West Valley shoppers will have to wait another seven years for the highly anticipated Estrella Falls mall.

The Goodyear City Council on Monday approved a second amendment to the mall agreement with developer Macerich that breaks the development into two phases, pushing the mall’s opening due date to Dec. 31, 2021.

The first phase will require the developer to open a movie theater with at least 12 screens and two pads ready for retail or entertainment development by Dec. 31, 2016.

Restaurants that move into the entertainment site cannot be fast food restaurants, according to the agreement.

Phase Two, which is contingent upon meeting Phase One, requires the regional mall to be open by Dec. 31, 2021.

Tonopah Valley High School welcomed Principal Zhao Yan Guo this week.

The school principal flew more than 16 hours from northern China to participate in an administrators exchange program.

The program is part of The China Exchange Initiative, which was founded in 1999 to further American student and teacher opportunities to study in China.

Although Zhao has traveled to many countries outside of China, his trip to Tonopah was his first in the United States.

Tonopah Valley High School Principal Edgar Garcia, who is hosting the visitor, took him to see the Grand Canyon and showed him around the school throughout the week.

Zhao has worked as a principal for 15 years and previously taught math. The best part about being a principal in China is the time spent with students, he said through interpreter Chad Broadbent at a school assembly Monday morning.
