Charleston = not a road to there,

The town had a wild and lawless reputation, largely perpetuated by newspapers on the east coast.[6] Noted outlaw Frank Stilwell owned a saloon in Charleston, before selling it to Jacob W. Swart in 1881.[1][14] In addition, the Clanton Ranch, owned by “Old Man” Clanton, and run by his sons John, Phin, Ike and Billy, was located just five miles south of town.[16][17][18] Some of the most infamous figures in the territory at the time were employed by or associated with the Clanton Ranch, including the Clantons themselves, Johnny Ringo“Curly Bill” BrociusPete Spence, and Frank and Tom McLaury.[19]

Despite its reputation and its infamous residents, it is worth noting that the town never suffered a single successful robbery of either silver or money at the hands of outlaws,[6] though a failed robbery of the Tombstone Mining Company which resulted in the murder of mining engineer M. R. Peel was recorded in Millville on March 25, 1882.[5][15][20][21] In addition, The Tombstone Epitaph on May 6, 1882 said of Charleston that it was “well regulated and free from turmoil” and that it was “one of the most peaceful places we were ever in.”[7][22]

Charleston was also known for Justice of the Peace James Burnett. Burnett was, by all accounts, a corrupt and violent individual. After a disagreement with the Cochise County Board of Supervisors who ostensibly supervised Burnett’s action, Burnett declared that he would run his court independently. From that point on, he was said to administer justice on the spot, outside of his courtroom, in the form of fines that he personally pocketed. Burnett’s fines were diverse, including anything from cattle to cash, and ranged from nine cords of wood for theft, through one thousand dollars when saloon owner Jacob Swart shot and killed a man. In the absence of other governmental representatives, Burnett became the de facto dictator of Charleston until the town was abandoned around 1889, at which time he left Charleston and became Justice of the Peace in nearby Pearce. He was shot and killed in Tombstone in July 1897 by William Greene, a local rancher who believed that Burnett blew up a dam which led to the death of Greene’s daughter. There is no known surviving evidence that Burnett was responsible for the dam explosion, though Greene and Burnett did have a history of altercation.[1][3][23][24]

Decline[edit]

When the silver mines in Tombstone flooded in 1886, the mills were forced to shut down, and Charleston and Millville went into steep decline.[3][5][6] The large Sonoran earthquake that struck on May 3, 1887,[25] accompanied by more than thirty minutes of aftershocks, left all of the town’s adobe structures in ruins, and sealed the town’s fate.[1][10][14] The town was quickly abandoned as none of the structures remained habitable.[25] The Charleston Post Office shut down on October 24, 1888, and by 1889, both Charleston and Millville were already ghost towns.[6][12]

en . wikipedia . org /wiki/1887_Sonora_earthquake == Towns near the epicenter suffered significant damage, particularly in Bavispe, where most houses were destroyed and 42 of the town’s 700 inhabitants were killed. Houses of adobe construction were also destroyed in Tepic and Moctezuma. The houses were roofed with heavy log rafters that were untied to the adobe walls and fell in when the walls collapsed.[5] The earthquake triggered many rockfalls and landslides and caused ground fissures. Moderate to severe damage occurred in northeastern Sonora, northwestern Chihuahua, southwestern New Mexico, southeastern Arizona and the westernmost part of Texas.[1]

the wines, per RotarySV dot org: Kief Manning, owner of Kief– Joshua Vineyards located in El-gin/Sonoita and in Willcox, spoke to the club about wine making in Arizona in general and about his vineyards and winery in particular. The club members learned that wine making in Ari-zona was legally prohibited from 1915 (soon after Arizona be-came a state) until 1980, some years after Arizonans in the 1970’s actually began researching wineries and planting vineyards in apparent ignorance of the law.

Kief shared what a year as a vineyard owner, wine producer looked like: from March-April budding of the vines in Willcox, then Sonoita; to flowering in May; fruit setting in July and August; through harvesting anytime between the end of August through Halloween. Before, after, and in-between those events, Kief and his father spend their time chasing bugs, foiling mold and Texas root rot, and training grape branches and tendrils to the wires and away from the pathways between the grapes. When harvest time comes, no more than 24 hours after Kief’s personal grape taste testing says the grapes of a particular varietal are ready, Kief, his dad, and two friends harvest those grapes and immediately send the grapes through the crusher and de-stemmer. What happens after that depends on whether the grapes are those for a white wine or those for a red wine.

Grape harvesting is not for amateurs nor for those sampling the wine as finger tips can be lost from sloppy handling and cutting of the grape bunches. Kief’s wines can be tasted at the Pizzeria Mimosa, Café Roka, and at the Beverage House close to Ace Hardware among other places. Kief added that his wines can be tasted at the Kief-Joshua Vineyards in Sonoita as part of the Sonoita Wine Festival. Jerry Regan mentioned that there would be a wine and food pairing with Kief’s wines at the Outside Inn, but if members did not already have reservations, they could “fuhgeddaboudit.”

Keep us, oh God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought,

in word, in deed. Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off self-seeking. May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to  face, without self-pity and without prejudice.

May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.

Let us take time for all things; make us to grow calm, serene, gentle. Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straightforward and unafraid.

Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create

differences, that in the big things of life we are as one.

And may we strive to touch and to know the great, common human heart of us all.

And, oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.

Mary Stewart, April 1904
