WUND ANTHEM

’S JOEY

People love their pets—and, perhaps even more so in 85086, judging from the sizable number of photo entries in our first Cutest Pet Contest. Adoring pet owners submitted over 160 heartwarming photos on 85086 Magazine’s Facebook page of their pets playing, posing, lying around, getting dirty, getting wet, or simply looking supercute. Frankly, we are bowled over by all the cuteness. ADAM TOREN Sure, we have our favorites, but it’s Publisher not up to us to decide the winner. It’s adam@85086magazine.com up to you to pick the pet that’ll get the star treatment, including a professional photo shoot and a spot on our April cover, along with a feature story, a fabulous prize package—five days free boarding, one free groom, a deluxe goodie basket from Sonoran Desert Pet Resort, and other cool prizes. To vote for your favorites, just follow the directions on page 40. Now, on to our cover story on hometown 16-year-old genius Joey Hudy, who invents things that even many adults don’t understand. His creations have garnered a lot of attention from such people as President Obama and Intel CEO Brian Krzanich—the former invited Joey to the White House twice, the first time so that the young inventor could demonstrate his Extreme Marshmallow Cannon and the second time as one of President Obama’s 25 invited guests at the State of the Union Address on Jan. 28. Check out Joey’s story on page 36 to read more about this outstanding young man living in 85086. With that in mind, we’re always looking for fascinating local people and stories to celebrate in the pages of 85086. If you know someone or someMATTHEW TOREN thing that fits the bill, we want to hear Publisher about it so that we can share the news matthew@85086magazine.com with the community.

Treasure Hunt Part puzzle, part scavenger hunt, and a whole lot of fun! Eric Olson dares you to become a ‘THunter.’ HAVE YOU EVER pictured yourself running around the world on The Amazing Race or hanging out with Jeff Probst on Survivor and thought that it might be fun but it’s too big of a commitment, too ambitious, or just way too Hollywood? What if you could have a little taste of that experience right here in your own 85086 backyard? Welcome to Treasure Hunt! Treasure hunts are fun-packed evenings filled with teamwork, puzzle solving, and map navigation. The objective: solve as many puzzles as possible within the given amount of time period (typically around five hours). The rules vary, but in general, you are given a set of clues before the hunt. The clues reveal the theme of the hunt and guide you to specific movies, works of literature, current issues, historical events, or general trivia that you need to become familiar with before the night of the hunt. Hunt night consists of 18 to 26 puzzles scattered throughout the North Valley. Each location provides the team (com-

monly referred to as THunters) with a challenge that must be solved correctly. Doing so will afford a clue, which will guide you to the site of the next puzzle. If you can’t solve a particular puzzle, asking for the correct answer will result in a time penalty. The team with the fastest time wins the hunt. Every hunt includes a unique variety of physical, logical, aquatic, and electrical challenges. Hunters may find themselves solving a Sudoku puzzle, deciphering a code hidden within a song, dancing a few bars of “The Hustle,” translating a piece of Morse code, or riding a tricycle around a mini-obstacle course. They must work as a team to complete each puzzle and get the clue, which will lead them to the next site. Eric Sayban from Anthem recently participated in his first treasure hunt. “I had no idea what I was getting into,” he says. “However, the level of attention and thought that goes into planning and executing this event made me quickly feel like I was actually a part of a real-life treasure hunt! It was a unique way to have a fun-filled evening with friends and family.” Although you will feel the pressure to “hustle” at times, the hunt is not an athletic event. It’s also not for children, as all participants must be 18 years or older to play. The hunts in the North Valley are planned and executed totally by volunteers, with the winning team typically committing to plan and host the event the next year.

MARCH 2014

Eric Olson, a nine-year resident of Desert Hills, is vice president of marketing at a video analytics company in north Phoenix. He enjoys mountain biking and has been a ‘THunter’ for over 15 years An evening of hunting concludes with a banquet and a few cocktails. Teams share stories of their hunt experiences, and the hunt organizers review puzzle solutions and present awards.

Ready. Set. Relay! The community comes together for the eighth annual Relay For Life. By Irma Poznecki

PATRONS OF THE North Valley Regional Library may not be aware that they’re recipients of NFL funding. No, not the football league—these playmakers are officially named New Friends of the Library, which is a local nonprofit group whose mission is to provide financial support to our library for the benefit of all its patrons. Join in an evening of joy, laughter, hope, entertainment and memories at the eighth annual Relay For Life event held on April 26 at the Anthem Community Softball Fields. Open to the public, this event is seeded with volunteers from near and far and will showcase a spectrum of local talent and unique events—everyone is sure to home in on something they enjoy. Relay For Life is the signature fundraising event for the American Cancer

er an ’ s D ay R F L H op e flo at at Vovetem ber 2 0 13 Pa ra de in A nt he m . N

Society (ACS). It’s a community event designed, developed, and delivered entirely by local volunteers. Teams walk the track from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., taking turns to assure that at least one team member is on the track the entire time because cancer never sleeps. The event has two primary goals. One is to raise funds for research and care of cancer patients, and the other is to raise cancer awareness—all with emphasis on local communities. In fact, from about December 2012 to December 2013, the ACS provided dozens of services to 22 patients and caregivers in the 85086/85087 zip code area. Included in these numbers are three local children who were sent to a camp where they could forget about cancer and just be kids. “Money from your local Relay For Life event can definitely be traced right back to these communities,” says American Cancer Society specialist Melanie Maharam.

Relay For Life is a Celebration for Everyone You’re sure to feel an overwhelming sense of community as smiles and laughter fill the air throughout the evening. Simultaneous activities at this event create a carnival-like atmosphere where time flies as the fun consumes you.

18 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

“Our musical showcase includes performances by school bands and choirs, MTA, a local rock band named Exit 227, and a solo performance by Anthem’s own Ally Lane,” says Relay for Life co-chair Kelly Hanson. As the performers take the stage, teams of relayers will have booths set up along the track; they will fund-raise right there at the event. Most will have a silent-auction basket at their booth. “You never know what you’ll find, but you can bet you’ll find something you like,” says co-chair Joli Reichert.

Irma Poznecki is an active volunteer in and around Anthem. She loves to travel and especially enjoys visiting National Parks. She enjoys reading and describes herself as a lifelong learner.

Some teams will raise funds by selling candies, sodas, bottled water, or homemade jewelry. Others may offer face painting or photo booths for a donation. Vendors will also be there with a variety of other items for sale.

Celebrating Your Loved Ones Festivities continue with another aspect of the Relay For Life event—the honoring of cancer survivors and remembering loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer. At 6 p.m., registered survivors gather and walk the first lap around the track signifying triumph over cancer. You can expect the crowd to go wild with cheers and applause as survivors take their victory lap. If ever there was an event where your mere presence would yield a positive result, this is it! There’s but one somber moment during this event—the Luminaria Ceremony. Hundreds of luminarias will line both sides of the track. Each bag is decorated by family and friends of loved ones who are fighting or have lost their battle with cancer. A bagpiper playing “Amazing Grace” will lead the silent crowd around the track. Emotions overcome many guests during this time and tears flow as loved ones spot that special bag dedicated to the one they love. These luminarias will stand until the morning light. They serve as reminders of why must unite to find a cure.

Participating is Easy There are many ways to get involved. You’re welcome to join the fun and make a difference in the fight against cancer by registering as a participant. You will find information and the registration link on the Facebook group site Relay For Life Anthem AZ. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and anyone in need of service hours can also make a difference by helping in other capacities. Contact Joli or Kelly at: rflanthem2014@cox.net.

Turn Back the Hands of Time With a Liquid Facelift Q: What is a liquid facelift? A: Facial plastic surgery historically focused on stretching the face tighter and tacking it up higher. Good plastic surgeons will now offer volume replacement as part of the facelift procedure. Many people who have fair to moderate skin elasticity or better, however, will find that after volume replacement, there is no need for surgery at all. The liquid lift is truly the most corrective, most natural-appearing, anti-aging offering available. Q: What results can I expect from a liquid facelift? A: This procedure corrects bone and tissue loss by using compounds that fill in areas of depression, in order to achieve rejuvenation of the face. Commonly filled areas include forehead, temples, cheeks, tear-troughs (the grooves or “bags” under the eyes), jawline, and chin. When smaller amounts of filler are placed evenly throughout the face, the overall effect is one of a lifted, youthful, smoother contour. Q: How long do the effects last? A: Many patients will be surprised to learn that these fillers can be “melted” away with an enzyme using a small Botox syringe. First-time clients may opt to only use hyaluronicacid fillers for this reason, to be reassured that what is done is reversible should they be unhappy with the outcome. Radiesse, a calcium hydroxylapatite filler, is a great option for those who are more comfortable with the procedure. Radiesse is normally priced slightly higher than hyaluronicacid fillers because it has 50% more product in the syringe. Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic-acid- based liquid, can be used in conjunction with gel fillers to effectively volumize the “frame” of the face. It typically has a very natural effect, helps rejuvenate the skin, and normally lasts up to two years, but requires several visits. Artefill, a polymethylmethacrylate filler, is another option for people who would like longer lasting results. These latter three fillers all help to stimulate the body’s own collagen production, resulting in longer lasting effects.

Play Ball The 85086 Book Club takes on a local team favorite. HOW DID EVERYONE like Gone Girl? I give it an eight on a scale of one to 10. But if I could rate just the middle of the book, it would get a complete 10—that was the best part. It was a dark and maybe a bit warped page turner. The end? Well, it wasn’t my favorite. I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read the book, but I was hoping for a different conclusion. And apparently I may get my wish when the movie comes out. I’ve seen a few articles that hint at a change of how it all ends when the story hits the big screen. I will say that I enjoyed Gillian Flynn’s writing style and twisted sense of storytelling so much that immediately after finishing Gone Girl, I read an earlier work of hers. Sharp Objects was even a tad darker, but it was another really great read. I plan on reading Dark Places as well, but I need a change in mood for a book or two. So, let’s switch gears. I think it might be fun to do another nonfiction selection, particularly something about Arizona. And since baseball season is approaching and we already have spring-training games going on locally, let’s do a baseball book. Let’s read Arizona author Len Sherman’s book Big League, Big Time: The Birth of the Arizona Diamondbacks. It’s a change from what I would normally read, but isn’t that one of the things a great book club should do—get you to read outside your comfort zone?

Apparently, it’s the first book ever to chronicle the birth of a major-league baseball franchise from conception to opening day. It promises to examine the billion-dollar business of baseball and its enormous impact on our culture.

FROM THE SUMMARY: Read the inside story of how the Diamondbacks front office chose the team’s name and colors, successfully maneuvered multimillion-dollar deals with a host of major sponsors, determinedly wooed the vast Mexican market, attracted such celebrity co-investors as Billy Crystal and Lou Gosset, Jr., and became one of the five highest revenue-producing franchises before a single game was played. Complete with player profiles, an exclusive inside-thewar-room took at the expansion draft, and a dissection of the media’s role in the global growth of the sports industry, Big League, Big Time is a rare glimpse into the politics, business, and promise of baseball—a fascinating analysis of how one city cultivated a very special field of dreams.

Kristine Abrams Gresh has been a freelance writer and an avid reader for several years. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, she now lives in Anthem with her husband and son. She loves a good book and is determined to write one of her own someday. 20 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

When Opposites Attract Barbara Stizer chats with a Desert Hills duo who bring out the best in each other. Photos by Barbara Stitzer

AT FIRST GLANCE, Lynnette and Randy Guinn are the two least likely people to be married in any room. Lynnette, an East Coast former model, turned corporate IT Leader, turned skin-care-business owner (she’s an independent consultant and a Level V Leader with Rodan + Fields Dermatologists and has about 25 consultants on her team) is a classic Type A personality. “I call her an A Plus or Triple A personality,” drawls Oklahoma born and bred Randy, a lovable, huggable teddy bear of a bass player, “and me, I’m more of a B minus, or maybe even a C.” But when you look closer, you see the similarities. Both covet old trucks and horses, listen to the same music, and are well travelled. Randy can hear a song and play it by ear right away. Lynnette grew up playing the flute in orchestras and marching bands and is excellent at reading music. She plays several instruments. She grew up riding and jumping horses

English style, while he grew up with horses and cows on Oklahoma farms. Randy, a professional musician most of his adult life, started making a living at it 30 years ago. “By the time we were in junior high, I had my own rock-androll garage band,” he says. “Then my dad, brother, and I went on the road playing for money. We played rodeos, clubs, VFWs, Elks Lodges, Moose Lodges—‘the animal clubs,’ as we called them. Mom was our critic and advisor. My father taught me about music and the music business. I moved to Nashville in the mid-’80s and spent 10 years there, playing with Eddy Raven, Helen Cornelius, and Jim Ed Brown and several other artists. I played the grand Ole Opry several times, and every major venue in the U.S. I also spent time in Europe, touring. I was young, it was fun, I was single, I played in the band at night, and played a lot of golf all day...it was perfect.”

“Randy is just a very kind and gentle person anyway, but I saw [him] through my son’s eyes, and that made me look at him differently.”

And when Randy was ready for the real thing, the music didn’t stop. He and Lynnette met at the Buffalo Chip Saloon in Cave Creek, where Randy has played bass for several years. After being introduced, Randy took the plunge and asked Lynnette to dance. “To be honest, I didn’t think she’d go out with me,” Randy says, “I thought, all I can do is ask her, and she could turn me down.” He gave her his phone number because he didn’t think she’d give him hers. She called, and they went to lunch. “He was so nice to my son (Ryan, now 21),” Lynnette said. “And my son thought he was a great guy.

Preservation of a Landmark Local Jeffrey Cody on the efforts to protect Daisy Mountain.

RECENTLY, TWO DIFFERENT articles brought awareness of Daisy Mountain to the readers of 85086 Magazine. The first came from Jim Oliveri and dealt with the history of Daisy Mountain and Gavilan Peak. Meanwhile, Anthem resident Joseph Wisniewski recently related a harrowing experience while hiking this distinctive mountain unprepared. Having hiked Daisy myself, I could relate to Wisniewski’s experience. It’s indeed a challenging climb and one best experienced under the watchful attention of an experienced guide. I thought readers would be interested in finding out more about this incredible natural monument. The fate of Daisy Mountain is now under the watchful eye of the Desert Foothills Land Trust (DFLT). A select DFLT committee, the Save Daisy Mountain Committee (SDMC), is handling the organizing and planning for the eventual conservation of this beautiful and distinctive North Valley resource. The SDMC is dedicated to the preservation of the natural resources, wildlife habitat, and open space, along with historic and geologic features of the mountain and its contiguous areas so everyone can enjoy it for decades to come. The first and primary mission of the SDMC is to “protect and restore the Arizona land known as Daisy Mountain and the adjacent related parcels as open space, which offers access to people and wildlife.”

24 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

For those who live in the shadow of Daisy Mountain, the tension among history, nature, and the demands of the modern world is strong. New River to the north is one of Arizona’s oldest settled areas, while Anthem to the south is one of its newest. A new development is now rising on its west side, an area located just north of and adjacent to Anthem. On the east side, homes in New River and Desert Foothills are nestled in the base of the mountain. Daisy Mountain deserves preservation not only for the communities of Anthem, Desert Hills, and New River but also for all the residents, young and old, who live in the North Valley, the Valley of the Sun, and the entire state of Arizona. Yes, much of Arizona is undeveloped land, but it’s rapidly being carved into developments in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area. It’s becoming rarer each year to look at a mountain in the North Valley and not see a home, a water tower, a cell tower, or any other vestige of modern society. In an effort to raise awareness, the SDMC and Anthem are initiating a program of hikes into the foothills and even to the summit of Daisy Mountain. One objective is the Daisy and Daisy Parallel Mines, for which 1941 and 1943 documents can be found. Along the way, there will be horizontal and vertical shafts to peer into and allow imaginations to reflect on the men who dug their way into the heart of the mountain looking for precious minerals. There are many old mining and ranching roads that lead up and around the mountain, but the Arizona State Land Department permit restrictions and the county dust ordinances discourage those wanting to experience four-wheel adventure. It’s best to wear a sturdy pair of shoes or boots if you intend to participate in

Jeffrey Cody lives in Anthem and is a member of the Save Daisy Mountain Committee. the hikes, as the rocks are quite large and sharp on the roads. State-trust land is not maintained, and the roads and trails can be treacherous. Another consideration for hiking or driving on state-trust land is obtaining a permit. Individual, family, or group permits such as the North Country Conservancy (now merged with DFLT) can be obtained for these hikes and are available for $15 to $20. The photo opportunities are endless as you make your way along the roads. Don’t forget to save some for the DFLT Photo Contest! There are lovely vistas across New River to the Tonto National Forest. Closer at hand are numerous cacti and local flora. You may want to invest in a handy field guide; I recommend Sonoran Desert Life by Gerald A. Rosenthal or the Phoenix Wildflowers CD by Paul Santori Sr. For more information on the hikes, visit azland.gov/programs/natural/rec_ permitFaqs.htm. Visit the DFLT website at dflt.org to find out about the organization’s ongoing work as it strives to conserve the natural heritage for those who come after us.

fresh | STEALS & DEALS

Spring Savings Take advantage of the savings tips below, to help extend your budget, says local budget-savvy mom Judy Weston. March Is Frozen Food Month It may be hard to believe, but there actually is a frozen food month (okay, it’s also the Adopt a Rescued Guinea Pig Month—but I couldn’t tie that into savings). Every March for the last 31 years, supermarkets celebrate their frozen products by offering tremendous sales and coupons. You’ll find savings in almost every freezer section. In the March 2 Sunday paper, there will be a freestanding insert of just frozen foods. Be sure to clip these coupons and use them throughout the month when

you find those items on sale. Your normal coupon inserts will also be loaded with great price freezes—you know what I mean—so be sure to scour the paper for even more chilly clip-outs. I especially use this time to really stock up on frozen fruit for smoothies in the upcoming warmer months. If you have an extra freezer, take advantage of the sales and stockpile the items you will use.

Time to Plant and Save A fun and healthy way to save a bundle on produce is to plant your own. Coming

from the LA beach area, where I could plant anything at any time, I have had a lot of learning to do on what to plant and when to plant it for a successful vegetable garden. Our small Anthem yard is perfect for the Arizona climate. Smaller raised beds and containers are preferred, as you can better control the soil. The best compost around can be purchased from Singh Farms in Scottsdale. Items to plant successfully in March include basil, beets, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, watermelon (if you have the room), okra, green onions, peppers, radishes, summer and winter squash, sunflowers, and tomatoes. For more information on whether to plant seeds or transplants, visit the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension at cals.arizona.edu/pubs /garden/az1005.pdf.

Think Vacation March is a downtime for the travel industry, and so luggage can often be found at great sales. Right now, we are in the mid-time between holiday and summer travel. So, if your old luggage is due for a trip

to the dump, now may be the best time to say bon voyage. On a similar note, if you haven’t started planning your summer vacation, now is the time to start and finish! After March, most deals—except those rare last-minute ones— will be gone. Start researching your vacation, and book immediately when you find a great deal. This is not a time to delay and wait for a better bargain. It won’t happen— that ship will sail.

But Winter’s Over…. Well, for those of us lucky to live in this beautiful state! If you are into winter sports, which I am not, be sure to take advantage of the great sales you will find. Skis, snowboards, and winter outdoor clothing will all be going on sale and clearance this month. Many rental locations will sell off their old season models, at tremendous discounts, if you don’t mind a used item. Be sure to check online for coupons or codes that can be used. If you do shop online, remember to figure in any shipping charges, which can make a great sale into a mediocre one.

Judy is an Anthem resident and a mother. She has worked in the coupon and savings field for over 13 years. Her philosophy is to save more so she can give more. 26 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

home | PETS

Lost and Found in Anthem Roberta Gottlieb on the growing dilemma of lost pets in the area. ANTHEM PETS OFFERS a unique service to our local communities—a volunteer lost-andfound pet phone hotline. Many of us living in our area have at least one pet. We all think it could never happen to us, but it only takes a moment for a pet to become lost. It’s estimated that one in three pets gets lost, and getting lost is the number-one cause of death for pets. Without any identification, nine out of 10 lost pets never make it home. Almost all of the animals reported to the Anthem Pets hotline have no identification, and this starts an arduous chain of actions in an attempt to reunite pets with their families. From September through December, 52 pets were reported as lost, and 18 were never recovered. Meanwhile, 74 pets were reported as found, and just under half made it back to their owners. As you can see, the hotline has a high volume of calls. Some hotline calls inform us about lost pets, others report roaming or found pets. Occasionally, there is a quick match and a resolution—other times, the owners are never found. Community members need

to be aware that it’s not only the singular hotline volunteer that takes action. There have been as many as five Anthem Pets volunteers interrupting their personal time to simultaneously participate in an attempt to bring a roaming pet back to its family. This team effort includes posting details to social-media sites, recovering a roaming pet, scanning for a microchip, finding a safe location to hold a found pet or a temporary foster home, providing action

steps to the caller, and assessing for any immediate veterinary needs. For a small volunteer-driven organization, the increase in lost and found pets that have no method of owner identification has made the hotline efforts quite burdensome.

Some recommendations for pet owners (this goes for your indooronly cats as well): 1. Please! Microchip your dog or cat. Yes, even your indoor-only cats! This can be done at your veterinarian, low-cost area clinics, or at any of the county shelters. The microchip company registers your pet’s name, a photo, your contact phone numbers, and address. Since the microchip is a permanent method of identification for your pet, you must remember to update your contact information if you change phone numbers or move. The microchip companies are staffed 24/7 to assist you with either a lost or a found pet. 2. Your pet should always wear a collar with a tag that includes a current cell phone number. 3. It’s a law in Maricopa County that any time your dog is away from your personal property, it must be wearing a collar with an attached Maricopa license tag. Anyone can call the county shelter during business hours to search for owner identification by reading the number on the tag. (602) 506-7387.

Roberta’ s mission is to educate people about responsible pet ownership and to raise the public’ s awareness of animal neglect and abuse. She is a consultant to Anthem Pets’ board of directors. 30 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

4. Worst-case scenario: Your pet is lost! Call the Anthem Pets hotline at (480) 287-3542. Next, e-mail a photo, a detailed description of your pet, including the exact last-known location (nearest intersection), and your contact information to anthempets@yahoo.com. We will post your lost pet on our own Facebook page as well as on “Anthem Stuff.” Next, post on Craigslist in the Phoenix section, in two different community categories: “pets” and “lost and found.” On Facebook, post to Straydar and Lost Pets of Arizona. In addition, petharbor.com is a website that lists lost and found pets as well as shelter admissions. When you search under the local shelters for your lost pet, you need to look under both categories of “lost” and “adoptable.” Please realize that some people who find animals hold on to them for days or weeks before they bring it to the shelter––so keep looking! In addition, on petharbor.com, you can sign up for e-mail alerts that could match your pet. And a must: nolostpetsmaricopa.org. Numerous resources are here, including the link to an interactive map of where recently admitted shelter animals were found either by an animal control officer or a citizen. Additional resources and suggestions are also listed. Click on “Looking for your lost pet?” which is in small blue print in the upper-left corner under the large scrolling photos. 5. Pets are beloved family members. They can be very elusive when lost, so the best action you can take is to be proactive and ensure that your pet has at least two methods of identification at all times.

Show Some Love Local psychologist Chris Wylie offers suggestions on how to show your sons and daughters you love them! FATHERS, HERE ARE a few ways you can communicate love to your daughters!

WRITE A NOTE AND ENCLOSE A GIFT. Give it to her before she goes to school. Do this when she isn’t expecting it! Keep it short and sweet. Let her know how much you love and cherish her. A few flowers won’t hurt, either.

SPEND ONE-ON-ONE TIME WITH YOUR DAUGHTER. Find one day a week (or at least a few hours) when you dedicate your attention solely to her, and try your best not to bring your phone! (If you have more than one daughter, don’t do the exact same thing with each one. They all need to feel special in their own way.)

BE A FATHER THAT LISTENS. Try your best to listen to the entire story! No matter how long or random the topics get, allow her to give you her side of anything. Try not to include any opinions or corrections you might have. Just listening and acknowledging that you are there for her goes a long way in your relationship with your daughter!

GIVE HER INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS AND LIFE. Don’t assume your daughter knows everything about you. However, do assume that she wants to get to know you in detail! Share with her your feelings, and provide details about who you are as a person. Tell her stories from when you were growing up. Sometimes, adult men have a hard time going into detail, but this will show your daughter that you are open to her being a part of your life.

LISTEN WITHOUT ADVISING. Many fathers feel that their only responsibility is to teach and instruct their child about what to do and how things are done correctly. They often provide correction all the time. Even the smallest of things is snatched away from the daughter’s control, and Super Dad comes in to “teach” her how to do it.

34 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

Mothers, here are a few suggestions for loving your sons! • Don’t always push for a detailed explanation of his feelings and emotions. Learn that just because he doesn’t sit down with you for a cup of tea, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t want you in his life. Boys—like men—share their feelings differently, and expecting him to share every detail of his life is unrealistic. • Let others know how proud you are of your son. The next time you are in a social setting or thumbing through Facebook, announce to the world and your friends—while he is watching—how amazing your son is in every way. Be specific, though—too much bragging is never too much as long as it’s about something he’s done well! • Learn more about what hobbies he enjoys, and show an active interest. Let him know that his interests are your interests. Don’t become a chauffeur and drop him off at his favorite activities Show him some respect and privacy. This can be hard for some parents. As adults, we require our children to show respect to us and to people around us. But we rarely put those same demands on ourselves. So the next time you want to go through his things or spy on him through Instagram, try asking him first! • Let him help you do something. Boys are like men, and they enjoy feeling needed and appreciated. Mothers, give your son an opportunity to show you how strong, capable, and knowledgeable he is! ––I want to thank my wife and two girls for helping me with this wonderful article. Daddy really learned a lot from your input!

Whiz Kid

Anthem’s 16-year-old Joey Hudy is inspiring everyone from President Obama to Intel CEO Brian Krzanich. By Anissa Stringer Photos by Tammy Martin Photography, tammymartinphotography.com

JOEY HUDY IS a Maker. If you’re not familiar with the term, he describes it this way: “A Maker is a person who makes anything. It doesn’t matter what it is.” It sounds simple enough, but at the age of 16, Joey makes things that even many adults don’t understand. A visit to his website (lookwhatjoeysmaking.blogspot.com) demonstrates this point. On it, Joey offers an LED Arduino Shield kit of his own design. The kit allows you to create a bright LED display while learning to solder surfacemount components. The open-source microcontroller is the item he’s most proud of making—in part because it was his first profitable item but mainly because he loves teaching other people to do the things he loves. He’s even come across videos of kids learning to solder with the kit. Joey has always been a Maker. When he was younger, his parents enrolled him in many of the same things other parents put their children in—things like soccer and other sports—but he wasn’t particularly good at them and he didn’t like them much, either. What he did like was making things and sometimes taking them apart. One of his earliest memories is of trying to fix a broken game. He ended up taking the game apart and putting it back together, but it still didn’t work when he reassembled it. He says, “I made more of a mess of it, but it was fun!” He also remembers being fascinated by a massive science encyclopedia his family owned. He wanted so badly to understand the things that were described in the big book that he pushed himself to learn everything he could about science. When he was about 7, Joey became really interested in Snap Circuits, which are kits that provide hands-on learning about things like resistors, switches, and capacitors. When he needed more pieces, his mother, Julie, called Elenco and ended up talking to Jeff Coda of Elenco Electronics, Inc. Jeff asked her a few questions about Joey and told her he’d be sending them a care package. Julie was expecting a small kit with a few components.

Instead, Jeff sent two huge packages and kept in touch with their family as the years passed. It wasn’t long before Jeff began suggesting that Joey attend a Maker Faire, a festival that celebrates creativity and invention. He even sent Joey tickets to the 2011 Bay Area Maker Faire. Until then, they’d been putting off the expensive trip. With the tickets, Julie says, “There was no excuse not to go then!” That Maker Faire was a turning point for Joey and his mother. Julie realized that making things—being a Maker—was Joey’s “thing.” For the first time, Joey was surrounded by people who were interested in the same things he loved, and his mom found the community equally supportive. Since that first Maker Faire, they’ve attended numerous others, including ones in New York, Kansas City, and Rome, and doors have been opening to Joey ever since. When he was just 14, some of the folks at a Maker Faire he attended needed someone to represent them at the White House Science Fair. That someone was Joey. He made an Extreme Marshmallow Cannon that President Obama had fun shooting himself. How did he feel about meeting the president of the United States? Joey says it wasn’t that big of a deal because “he’s just another guy.” Cannonballing marshmallows at the White House is just one of Joey’s accomplishments. Joey has also presented a 3-D body scanner at SIGGRAPH, a conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques, and has spoken to large crowds at various Maker Faires, including the Rome Maker Faire where he met Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who immediately hired him. According to Intel Free Press (intelfreepress.com), Joey is the youngest person ever hired through their corporate internship program. Of course, Julie is as impressed with her son as everyone else is. “I’m so proud of the confidence he’s gained,” she says. “He’s stood up in front of 1,500 people to give a speech like a rock star. Now, he does that all the time!” At a Maker Faire in New York, Joey met a professor MARCH 2014

Tw o o f Jo ey ’ s l atest c re at i on s. from ASU who told him about the Herberger Young Scholars Academy on the ASU West campus. Within a week, Joey, who lives in Anthem with his family, transferred there. The program gives him and other passionate students like him access to the ASU campus and the labs—something he loves. Recently, Joey was called to the principal’s office—he thought he was in trouble but soon found

38 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

out that he’d been invited via a teleconference to the president’s State of the Union Address, where he sat in the First Lady’s box. Thanks to the accelerated program at his new school, Joey is graduating this year, and he has no plans to stop being a Maker. In 10 years, he hopes to be making products for Intel, and of course, he wants to continue to be an active part of many more Maker Faires. Mostly, he wants to continue to remind kids not to give up on the ideas they have and to encourage them to find ways to be Makers themselves. His mother agrees. She wishes that more parents would get their kids interested in making things and in letting them be who they were intended to be rather than trying to fit them into a mold. She says, “Most kids have some form of ‘making’ in them and just don’t know it.” She adds that kids don’t have to be interested in electronics or technology to participate in a Maker Faire. “Basically anything you can make is represented. If you make anything, you are a Maker!” That includes crafts, sewing, cooking, building shelters—any idea that can be created as a reality. And it’s never too late to become a Maker, either. Joey’s motto, “Don’t be bored…make something” is just as applicable to grownups as it is to kids—so let your own inner Maker out. Joey’s took him to the White House—who knows where yours will transport you! Want to become part of the Maker Movement? Visit makezine.com or makered.org.

Entertainer’s Backyard

A beautifully appointed outdoor living space brings Anthem’s Matson family together. By Sondra Barr Photos by Michele Celentano

JEFF AND HOLLY Matson moved to Anthem with their children five years ago. They fell in love with their home because of the open layout and beautiful sweeping vistas from their outdoor living space. Says Holly, “It provides us with a relaxed atmosphere to make memories with friends and family––we love being outside in the perfect weather found only in Arizona. It doesn’t get much bet-

But it’s not just family who get to enjoy the Matsons’ wellappointed backyard. “We love sharing our lives with special people,” says Holly, who counts having friends in the backyard, barbecuing, relaxing, splashing in the pool, and playing music as one of the benefits to a comfortable outdoor space.

Nutrient Rich Juicing offers energizing benefits, says local dietitian Kelli Morgan. Photos by Kelli Morgan Bio photo by Madilyn Morgan

I BEGAN JUICING regularly four years ago, and now, I don’t feel myself without my daily juice. I feel so energized after I juice! I love it first thing in the morning, but if I’m running short on time in the morning, I’ll have it in the afternoon. It’s a perfect pick-meup at 3 p.m.! Freshly made juice at home is not even in the same category as the “stuff ” you buy at the grocery store. Fresh juice contains all the live enzymes in the fruits and vegetables intact. Our bodies need these “live” foods to build “live cells.” When you juice, you extract the liquid from the pulp of the vegetables and fruits. When you drink the juice, you are bypassing the digestive process. Your body therefore receives all the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and oxygen within minutes. This is why it’s best to drink fresh juices on an empty stomach. The juice at the grocery store has been pasteurized, so all the live enzymes are long gone. Drinking fresh juice will help to cleanse your body on a regular basis. This will help you to feel energized and refreshed! It also helps you to look better, too! Your skin and hair will benefit from the high intake of vitamins from the juice! Colds and flus will become fewer, too!

Green Juice I change up my green juice almost daily, so I vary the vitamins my body is absorbing. The base is always organic celery and cucumber. These are very alkalizing vegetables, and they provide a lot of juice. I also try to add organic parsley to my juice. It’s one of the most nutritious foods in the world. Its highchlorophyll content cleanses the blood, liver, kidneys, and urinary tract. A good rule of thumb for green juices is a 3-to-1 veggie/fruit ratio.

better | HAIR

Let’ s look at face shapes and the nominees who have them:

A Haute Night at the Movies Local hair-care professional Martin Weston on the best styles for these Oscarnominated actresses. IN 1971, after watching a favorite television comedy show where the main character does a screen test for a movie, I decided I wanted to be a famous actor. Nearly every year after that, I’d anticipate the Academy Awards. I’d watch the preshows and the after-shows with a six pack of Coca-Cola and a bowl of chips, with the hope that one day I would be standing there accepting my award as best actor. It never happened. For some, though, that dream is a reality. This year, there are 10 ladies nominated for best actress and best supporting actress, with ages ranging from 23 to 84 years old. This is their night, but it’s also our night to see what they do with their hair. While some of their stylists should be awarded for their beautiful creations, others should be fired for sending their stars out of the salon without warning them first. Be mindful that your hair’s texture, length, and density as well as your face shape and personal preference all play a part in your final cut and style. Though Amy Adams’s tousled, flowing waves are beautiful, they aren’t for everyone; neither is Jennifer Lawrence’s much copied cropped cut. Your color and style should give you absolute confidence and empowerment while being as individual as your fingerprints.

a.

e.

b.

f. a.

OVAL Julia Roberts for August Osage County Long considered ideal because of its perfect symmetry, an oval shape can carry off nearly every style. Any color placement works well with this face shape, and if it’s yours, consider yourself fortunate!

c.

TRIANGLE/PEAR Amy Adams for American Hustle With a narrow forehead and distinctive jawline, you’ll want to create width at the brow bone and sleekness in the cheekbone and jawline. Shorter, voluminous cuts work very well, as they increase the width at the crown while balancing out the jaw and chin. Avoid jaw- or chin-length cuts, as they will draw unwanted attention to your widest area

c.

d.

g.

O f t h ese t sta r s , w h o ’lenl w e a r t h eir h a ir b est ? A n d t h e w in n er is .. .. ?

SQUARE Dame Judi Dench for Philomena A strong bone structure dominates this shape, which is equal at the brow bone, cheekbone, and jaw. Face-framing layers and increased volume at the crown will add softness. Avoid a blunt fringe or a jaw-length bob, as they can accentuate the strong angle. Keep the color brighter at the brow bone and crown, with added depth at the jawline––this placement will suggest the illusion of an oval shape.

d.

INVERTED TRIANGLE/HEART Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine and Lupita Nyongo’o for 12 Years a Slave This shape is the opposite of a triangle, with the width at the forehead tapering down to the delicate jaw and chin. A soft fringe narrows out the forehead, while a blunt cut at the jaw or chin gives the illusion of width. Avoid too much volume at the crown.

f.

DIAMOND Meryl Streep for August: Osage County and Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle Indicative of its name, this shape is a bit more angular, with the cheekbones wider than the forehead and jawline. Accentuate your beautiful cheekbones by lightening the color at the brow bone. Keep your length cut at your cheekbone to draw attention to them or below mid-neck to widen your jawline.

b.

e.

ROUND June Squibb for Nebraska Distinguished by a wider cheekbone and soft edges at the forehead and jaw, the idea is to visually add length to your face while minimizing the width. Stay away from center parts and cuts that fall at your chin, as they add width. Textured cuts that fall below the chin or mid-neck are ideal. Maintain a lighter color at the crown, and deeper at the jawline and below. This will give the illusion of length by minimizing the round shape.

g.

OBLONG/RECTANGULAR Sandra Bullock for Gravity Known for its consistency in width from the brow bone to the jawline, the harmonious shape can appear longer than it really is. By keeping the color lighter from the brow bone to jaw, the resulting illusion will be fullness in the cheekbone area. Avoid middle parts. Instead, choose a side part and add a beautiful soft fringe to help minimize facial length.

As a hairstylist, a salon educator, and an artist, local Martin Weston sees artistry everywhere. After working in the beauty industry for 30 years, he’ s still passionate about creating amazing looks for his clients. 54 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

1. NOT WORKING OUT WITH A PLAN. I see it time and time again: people walking into the gym and asking their gym partner, “What should we do today?” Not having a set plan for your workout week is like driving without a map. You can get just as lost. 2.

3. DOING TOO MUCH CARDIO. Cardiovascular exercise is great for your heart and overall health, but in order to start shaping and sculpting your body, you need to pick up some weights. Resistance training will help you achieve longterms goals by adding lean muscle mass to your body, helping it work more effectively even at rest.

4. IMPROPER BREATHING. People often forget to breathe properly when exercising. We get so focused on what we are doing that we forget that we need to watch our breath. Breathing properly when you

train helps to circulate oxygen to your muscles and eliminates carbon dioxide. To train properly, you must breathe out on the power stroke of the movement (the hardest part of the movement) and breathe in on the easiest part of the movement. Make sure you take a few deep breaths before you start your lift.

5. LIFTING TOO HEAVY. Check your ego at the door! Gradual progressive overload is the key to long-term weight-training success. Make sure your weights take you to exhaustion, but never sacrifice good form simply to lift a heavier weight. Keep in mind that heavy weight is not always the key to building great muscles. Work the negative phase of the movement, and slow down.

6. LIFTING TOO LIGHT. Women are especially guilty of this one. There is a misconception that heavy weight will make you bulky— nothing could be farther from the truth. Lifting weights creates lean muscle mass, which is smaller in size and dimension than fat. Bulk does not come from muscle but rather the fat between and around it. Don’t be too scared to work up to heavier weight over time.

7. MOVING TOO FAST. It’s not a race, and it’s not about how fast you can do it. Time under tension is the most effective way to build lean muscle mass. Concentrate on slowing down your eccentric phase of each lift (negative) and think of your muscle as a piece of Velcro being pulled apart. Don’t swing your weights, and don’t use momentum to complete your lifts.

8.

NOT UTILIZING FULL RANGE OF MOTION. Always use full range of motion with each exercise you perform. By not using full range of motion, you are more prone to injury and are limiting circulation to your tendons and ligaments. Utilizing full range of motion has also been proved to increase size and strength of your muscles as well as reduce fat stores. So regardless of your movement, remember me saying “All the way up and all the way down!”

9.

NOT STAYING FOCUSED. This is a surefire way to get hurt in the gym. Put down your phone, stay on task, focus on your movements, and your gym time will be safe and beneficial.

10. NOT EXECUTING EXERCISES WITH PROPER FORM. It’s important to remember proper form at all times. Always make sure that you keep your chest up, your shoulders back, and your spine with a natural curvature (no rounding of the back). If you don’t understand a particular movement, make sure you do your research and learn the proper form before trying to execute the exercise.

11. NOT HAVING FUN. Sometimes, we forget that exercise is fun! If you are healthy enough to be in the gym working out, then make sure you embrace the you time and have some fun doing it! Learn to reward your body with movement instead of considering it punishment!

Dare To Be Bare Beauty expert Jacqueline Starr-Hubert explores IPL Hair Reduction. ITSY-BITSY TEENY-WEENY bikini weather will be here before you know it. Do you dare to be bare? is the question, and how to achieve it is an even bigger question. The conventional methods consist of razors, wax, or depilatory creams. It seems that everyone wants to throw away their razors and do away with shave bumps, ingrown hair, and stubble. For years, the suggested alternative was electrolysis, a laborious process whereby an electric-shock needle literally burns hair follicles one at a time. Advances in laser technology have spawned a new solution to an age-old problem: removal of unwanted hair. Legs, underarms, and bikini waxes are all popular treatment areas, but facial hair on women remains the number-one area for laser-hair removal. So it’s no wonder that laser hair reduction is one of the more popular cosmetic treatments, along with Botox. Beautiful fur-free bodies are increasingly becoming the standard throughout the country. Before subjecting your unwanted hair to the world of lasers, it’s wise to educate yourself on the process so that you can determine if the treatment is right for you and, more importantly, if you trust the individual holding the laser.

LASER HAIR REDUCTION 101

How does it work?

A concentrated beam of light is aimed at hair (under the skin). The light is absorbed by the pigment, or melanin, and damages the follicle enough to retard future growth. It’s this reason why the hair being treated must be medium brown to black. Soft brown, dark blonde, blonde, white, or gray

hair is untreatable. The energy will not recognize the hair and pass right through it. This is a biggie—be cautious of anyone who tells you different.

What areas can I laser? Basically everywhere—well, except for eyebrows.

Cost for treatment?

Cost will vary depending on the area treated. Cost is determined

58 || 85086MAGAZINE.com || MARCH 2014

by how many zaps are required to cover the treated area. Most offices will work with you if you have multiple areas to treat, and bundling is an option. Don’t be afraid to ask.

What is the “ ouch factor? ” It’s certainly not described as a pleasurable experience, but if your provider has a cooling system, the process is considerably easier. Depending on a person’s pain tolerance,

Helpful Tip: Ask if your provider uses a Zimmer along with the laser. This device drastically reduces any risk of overheating the tissue and provides great comfort during the process. It’ s designed to blow very cold, providing a numbing affect.


Jacqueline StarrHubert, ME, CMLT, has been an Anthem resident since 2001. A medical esthetician/ laser technician, and makeup artist, she’ s also the director of Scottsdale Ridge Medispa.

Many offices will throw in small areas such as underarms free when you’ re looking to treat much larger areas such as legs. INSIDER SECRET:

lasers can feel like a gentle pinch or the snap of a hot rubber band. Some areas tend to be more sensitive than others.

How many treatments are required?

Hair grows in three different cycles. Each cycle must be treated at least twice, resulting in an average of six total treatments. These treatments are typically four to five weeks apart. Keep in mind that this figure is based on averages. Women who are challenged with hormonal imbalances may require more treatments. Why? That’s another article in itself!

Is there any down time?

There is no real down time with this treatment; however, it’s very important to protect the treated area with a minimum SPF30.

Are there any risks?

Not all skin types are safe to treat. Be sure to offer as much information about your health history as possible. A thorough medical consultation is recommended to determine if you are a safe candidate. If one is not offered, run! Laser hair reduction is a welcome blessing. If done properly, it’s extremely safe and effective. For those who are not good candidate for IPL: Vaniqa (pronounced “VAN-i-ka”) is a prescription cream applied to the skin for reducing unwanted facial hair in women ages 12 and older. Now is the time to prepare for bikini weather. Keep it simple, and stay savvy! MARCH 2014

Allergy Avoidance Fellow allergy sufferer and local pharmacist Tara Storjhann with some tips to combat seasonal allergies. I LOVE SPRINGTIME in 85086. The weather is ideal, the desert comes alive with flowers, and my favorite scene bursts forth—the desert floor becomes covered in green carpet! It’s beautiful! This is the time of year that I especially love to be outside enjoying the desert, plus it gives us bragging rights for all the Arizona haters out there who can’t understand why we would all choose to live in such a dreadfully “ugly” and “hot as Hades” place. Anthem comes alive in the spring more so than usual, with hikers, bikers, runners, and dog walkers all enjoying the beauty of our hometown. With all this idealizing of springtime comes the one elephant-in-the-room negative— seasonal allergies. For me and many others, this is the time of year our eyes turn red, our noses run, the sneezing begins, and we suddenly start hating the bloomin’ desert. So, this pharmacist and fellow allergy suffer is offering up some friendly advice to get you feeling better and out and about doing the things you love this time of year.

CLOSE YOUR WINDOWS. I love fresh air just as much as anyone, but it’s best to keep the fresh air out of the house and car this time of year. Instead, use your air conditioning and regularly maintain high-efficiency filters. It’s best to avoid humidifiers as well, since dust mites and mold, the most common cause of indoor allergies, thrive in warm humid environments.

IF IT’S WINDY OR EARLY IN THE MORNING, AVOID THE OUTDOORS. Pollen counts are highest at early morning, so if you are a fellow sufferer, here is your excuse to sleep in on Saturday morn-

ing. The best time to go outside or tackle outdoor chores is after a good rain since it helps clear pollen from the air. If you have to be outside working early in the morning or on a dry windy day, wear a dust mask and consider showering to rinse the pollen from your skin and hair.

DON’T HANG YOUR LAUNDRY OUTSIDE. Besides being frowned upon by the HOA, pollen can stick to sheets, towels, and unmentionables. Avoid this if you wish to control your outdoor allergies and keep the style and color of your skivvies to yourself.

TRY AN OVER-THE-COUNTER REMEDY. Look for the “Allergy” sign in the OTC area of the pharmacy, and you will find a plethora of antihistamines, deconges-

tants, nasal sprays, and eye drops. I advise consulting with your pharmacist on the best agent to try. Depending on your symptoms, you may need a combination of treatments, but my recommendation is to start out with one therapy at a time to avoid unnecessary side effects. Additionally, try rinsing your sinuses with a distilled, sterile saline solution, using a Neti Pot from the pharmacy. This helps to flush mucus and allergens from the nose and relieve nasal congestion. Be sure to follow the instructions on the box carefully and clean thoroughly after each use. For many people avoiding allergens and taking over-the-counter medications is enough to control symptoms, but if you are still miserable, see your doctor. There is a number of other treatments available to ease your suffering and help you enjoy the bloomin’ desert again.

Tara has resided in Anthem for over 11 years and is a wife, a mom, a pharmacist, and an assistant professor in the College of Pharmacy at Midwestern University in Glendale. She is a health advocate and is passionate about helping others achieve their wellness goals.
