"Home Town" Help Please

Hi. I live in a small Arizona town that sits on the border with Mexico. It's called Bisbee. I've looked at a few ways to write the town's name in Chinese and so far, this is about the closest I've come. Of course it's a phonetic translation. I would appreciate any feedback from other readers if this sounds close enough or perhaps a suggestion for another way to write it. Thanks.

毕兹柏= Bisbee

If you're looking for something like this, best thing to do is take the English word you do know, and add in a Chinese word you know that is related - I used 美国 - and if you are lucky you'll turn up a bilingual page with both on.

Or simply go to Advanced Google and search Bisbee Arizona only on Chinese pages.

Note that Taiwan/HK and Mainland names for Western places are often different.
