FOUNDATION TO HONOR THREE OUTSTANDING ARIZONA AVIATORS

The Arizona Aerospace Foundation will recognize three outstanding individuals who will be inducted into the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame (AAHOF) on Sat., Apr. 5, 2014.  Tickets are available now for the 24th Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, including a chartered bus bringing attendees from Phoenix to the Pima Air & Space Museum (additional fee). The individuals to be inducted are:

Edward Raymond Beauvais

Barbara McConnell Barrett Barbara Barrett received her Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Juris Doctorate from Arizona State University. She holds ratings as a private and instrument rated pilot. In 1982 she was the Vice Chairman of the Civil Aeronautics Board. In 1989 she served as the Deputy Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, the first woman to hold that position. She was directly involved in rebuilding the air-traffic control system after the airtraffic controllers strike.  As a member of the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services she worked to advance the position of women in the military that in 1993 culminated in allowing women to fly combat aircraft. She served as the United States Ambassador to Finland. She trained at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia and at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and was certified to fly in space. Barbara Barrett has received numerous awards and recognitions for her accomplishments.

Edward Beauvais career in aviation began in 1960 when he went to work for Frontier Airlines. He came to Arizona in 1966 with Bonanza and two years later he moved to California when it merged with Pacific Airlines and West Coast Airlines to form Air West. He then formed an aviation consulting business and provided support to numerous airlines and cities throughout the country. With that experience, he developed a business plan for a new low cost airline to be headquartered in Phoenix. America West began service on August 1, 1983. Over the next ten years America West grew from three aircraft to more than 100 and from 250 employees to over 14,000. He left America West as Chairman and CEO in 1992, he then founded Western Pacific Airlines and a year after that began Mountain Air Express. America West has grown through mergers to become one of the largest airlines in the United States and has adopted the name of its latest acquisition, American Airlines. Ed Beauvais has received numerous awards and recognitions for his accomplishments.

Charles Eugene Mann Charles Mann began flying while still in high school and earned his private pilot’s license soon after graduating in 1956. He attended the Embry Riddle International School of Aviation, the Ross School of Aviation, and Arizona State University. He worked as an instructor and corporate pilot and then became the general Manager for Rhodell Aviation where he directed one of the most successful aerobatic flying schools in the United States. He personally trained numerous aerobatic competition and airshow pilots helping to launch their careers. In 1968 he became an airline pilot, a lifelong dream. He went to work for Bonanza Airlines in March of that year flying the Fokker F27 Friendship. Charles retired from Northwest Airlines in 1996. While working as an airline pilot he continued to own and operate several businesses in the Phoenix area that specialized in aircraft sales and flight simulator

training. Charles Mann is well known in the pilot community, and recognized as a pilot’s pilot and highly respected by all.  He is a member of the Quiet Birdmen and of the Silver Eagles organizations.

Tickets

Tickets for the event ($125 per person, $1250 per table, $1500 per corporate sponsor table and $85 for previous AAHOF inductees) are available from Pima Air and Space Museum by calling 520 574-0462 or emailing info@ pimaair.org. Seats on the Phoenix bus are limited (pick up is at Cutter Aviation). The festivities begin at 5:30pm.  

The Spanish word esposa means “wife.” The plural, esposas, means “wives,” but also “handcuffs.”

FOURTH AVENUE SPRING STREET FAIR The 44th Fourth Avenue Spring Street Fair is the 21, 22, 23rd of March 2014. Show Hours are 10am to 6pm all three days. Free to the public, the Fourth Avenue Street Fair brings together over 350 arts and crafts booths, over 25 food vendors, Main Stage, Street Musicians, Food, Jugglers, face painting, balloons, and tons of other fun activities, and then packs them into three days of celebration. It’s Tucson’s Largest celebration. The Fourth Avenue Street Fair began 44 years ago when Fourth Avenue merchants put tables in front of their stores to attract customers before the holidays. From that beginning it has developed into one of the premier street fairs in the nation, drawing crowds of 200,000 to 300,000 and ranking as one of the top visual arts fairs in the country. A full third of exhibiting artists at the Fair are local artists/craftsmen. Services such as waste, porta potties, sweeping, tallow services, barricades and security are sourced locally. The Street Fair has developed into a Tucson tradition that has an impact on every Tucsonan in one way or another. The Street Fair is the source of funding for 20+ non-profit groups that derive (in some cases the majority of) their

income from the Fair and to the City of Tucson which obtains a boost in sales tax revenues. All year long, Monies earned from the bi-annual Fairs allow the Fourth Avenue Merchants Association to keep the Fourth Avenue shopping district a draw for all who live and visit Tucson. Come for the shopping: Over 350 booths featuring arts and crafts that cover the spectrum from fine art to country crafts. Glass, clay, wood, clothing, metal, jewelry, sculpture, all hand-made and on sale by the artist/ craftsperson. Come for the food: Over 35 food vendors selling an eclectic mix of good things to eat. Greek, Thai, BBQ, fry bread, funnel cakes, chicken, and more. Come for the music: Our Main Stage is our professional stage with top locally paid performers playing all your top hits. In addition there will be an assortment of street performers featuring everything from Magicians to Kazoo music. The 4th Avenue Spring Street Fair is Tucson’s rite of passage to spring. We hope you will join us.

ARTS! COVER STORY

A NIGHT OF NOSTALGIA AND LAUGHTER What exactly is I LOVE LUCY, LIVE ON STAGE! It’s a play, it’s a variety show and it’s a nostalgic step back in time to 1950’s America. Whether you first encountered the irrepressible comedy of Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel sitting in front of that black and white console television in your living room or watching reruns on your iPad, the universality of their characters and situations has not diminished. And while the two episodes, “The Benefit” and “Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined,” are the centerpiece of the play, it is the overall format of an audience watching a TV taping that gives the show its added punch.
 Memories are stirred in between sitcom segments by the seven piece band accompanying Bill Mendieta’s Ricky Ricardo at the Tropicana Nightclub and a half-dozen live, musical commercials for such familiar

products as Halo Shampoo, Brylcreem, Alka-Seltzer and the new Chevy. Audience participation, prompted by the ever-present applause sign, is encouraged by the evening’s dapper emcee, Maury Jasper. Fashion-wise you might laugh at the Diorinfluenced cocktail dresses with crinolinepuffed skirts and pinched waists, or enjoy that chic fashionista, Lucille Ball, in capri pants and ballet flats. Said Chicago critic Michael Roberts, “Seeing I LOVE LUCY LIVE ON STAGE is a reminder of the genius that went into early television. It also lets us forget our troubles of the day…and relive the true Golden Age of Television.” And while the iconic CBS-TV series was initially viewed on black-and-white sets, what the live audience on the sound stage of the Desilu Playhouse stage saw was Technicolor bright, and so will audiences at Centennial Hall.

Lucille Ball (with her baby TV son) appeared on the first cover of TV Guide in Jan. 1953. Ball appeared on the magazine’s cover more than any other celebrity, a total of 39 times.

The players’ names read like a “who’s who” as well as the list of soloists who have starred with the band over the years. In the 1980’s, the band was hired to tour with Dizzy Gillespie, exposing to the students the great teaching expertise Gillespie had at his command. Most recently, they undertook a groundbreaking, two-week performance tour throughout China - the only American jazz ensemble, professional or student, to play the Chinese large Poly Theaters.

RACE! COVER STORY

Lucas Oil Mods, Late Models, Pro-Stocks, Hornets at Tucson Speedway On Saturday March 22 at Tucson Speedway, the traveling Lucas Oil Modified Series will make its one and only trip to Southern Arizona’s premier 3/8-mile paved racing oval. Over 35 of the West’s fastest Modifieds are expected for the $1500 to win Arizona Shootout presented by Super Clean. Drivers from all over the West Coast are heading south for this special event. The night also features local divisions with the Late Models, ProStocks and Hornets adding to the evening’s festivities. In addition the world famous Tombstone Gunfighters from the O.K. Corral will be on hand adding fire power to the already super energized night of racing. For the children there will be a Petting Zoo and Face Painting. The activities begin at 7pm with spectator gates opening at 5pm. The Lucas Oil Modifieds opened their

2014 season two weeks ago with resounding success with 39-cars competing for the 24 starting spots.

The 16-cars that qualified via time were within 3/10ths of a second. That made for a wild main event. With most of

those cars expected for the Tucson stop, plus 4 to 5 locals and that many traveling from New Mexico, the car count could exceed 40. The local Late Model Division points chase is close with just three races remaining this season for this highly competitive division. Current leader Scott Strachan has a slim edge of 16-points over rookie Don Dority. There are other close battles within the top ten. Pro-Stock Division point leader Loren Sheffield enjoys a comfortable lead with six races remaining before championship night on June 7. This is the speedway’s largest division and on any given race night most are quite capable of victory and changing the points chase. Kyle Milburg leads the chase for the Hornet Division championship. Milburg had trouble in a warm up session last week and his car was crunched after contact with the retaining wall. This is another very competitive group and the outcome is always unpredictable. Tucson Speedway is located next to the Pima County Fairgrounds at 11955 S. Harrison Road, Tucson, AZ 85747. For more information go to the Speedway’s new web site at www. tucsonspeedway.com or call 520-7621600.

AZ STATE PARKS

32nd annual celebration of Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month

For the entire month of March 2014, the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO)/Arizona State Parks (ASP) is coordinating events throughout the state for the 32nd annual celebration of Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month (AAHAM). View the full schedule at AZStateParks.com/ archy. These events will focus on current efforts to preserve our past by protecting our fragile and nonrenewable cultural resources. AAHAM combines education with entertainment to reach both adults and children in an effort to teach responsible stewardship of our cultural resources. Museums, historical societies, tribes, agencies, parks, and archaeology organizations will be hosting events across the state; events are also planned in Arizona State Parks as part of their interpretive programs. Proclaimed by the Governor each year, this celebration will feature prehistoric and historic site tours, exhibits, hikes, open houses, lectures, demonstrations and other activities throughout Arizona. The featured event for the month is the ARIZONA ARCHAEOLOGY EXPO (Expo). This year’s Expo will offer many educational attractions for archaeology and history buffs, and will be located at Catalina State Park on Saturday, March 29, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Expo is FREE and open to the public

The Expo will provide a special opportunity for visitors to learn more about why it is important to preserve archaeological sites and historic places, what archaeologists, historians, and tribal members do in their jobs, and about the prehistory and history of Arizona. The Expo will feature archaeology-related hands-on activities, craft demonstrations, and other fun and educational events. In addition, Boy Scout and Girl Scout merit badge requirements can be fulfilled at the Expo! Special displays and booths by archaeological and historical organizations, museums, Native American tribes, state and federal agencies, and others will allow you to participate as an archaeologist might in their research today, or make crafts and tools that teach how prehistoric Native Americans and other early inhabitants survived in the Southwest. Cultural and historical demonstrators, talks by archaeologists, and interactive activities will help make the past come alive!  In addition, tours of local archaeological sites (rock art and pueblos) will be offered.. The Expo will give visitors new insights into Arizona’s many prehistoric, historic, and contemporary cultures, and will help instill a sense of stewardship for our state’s fragile and nonrenewable heritage resources.

Cienega Creek Natural Preserve – Vail, AZ I am sharing my recent Cienega Creek hiking experience with the wish that our community will become more aware of our personal impact on the watershed in and around Tucson as well as to inspire everyone to get out and take a trek to enjoy this beautiful place we call home. The more you explore and learn about plants, animals and habitats the more you will enjoy hiking and maybe imparting some of that knowledge to other people to inspire them to get involved in helping to preserve what we still have for

desert. I, accompanied by scientists of many different biology backgrounds, did a nine mile hike through the wash. Under towering Cottonwoods, Gooding’s Willows and steep bank cuts that exposed the extensive root systems of the riparian trees, we trekked through the sand and water to survey the area and appreciate the nature of our community. There is a myriad of wildlife in this area and on this particular day we saw: White nosed coati, turtles, frogs, toads, fish, birds, butterflies, beetles and tent worms

with new life and long stretches of dry, uncovered arroyo with wildflowers blossoming in the most heroic places and of course the cacti growing out of the side of huge rocks that make you take a moment to think about the difficulty and triumph of life in the desert. You must obtain a permit to venture out to Cienega, it is also really important to Pima County so they can track the recreational use of this land. I went to the Parks and Recreation Office and was able to get a permit for several weekends and the staff was so helpful and friendly. Their office is located at 3500 West River Road, you do not have to go to the office to get the permit but I highly recommend it because there are also some really cool maps and other resources that are useful for any outdoor enthusiast for all areas of Pima County. I will be writing more about the Cienega area so please stay tuned because there is so much to talk about with this interesting and rich history, abundant life, and the need for its preservation for all species (including

ABOUT THE FILM

‘Divergent’

‘The Face of Love’

Shailene Woodley plays a young woman who is warned that she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous - before it is too late. (PG-13 - 143 minutes)

Annette Bening plays a widow who, several years after the loss of her husband, meets a man (Ed Harris) who looks exactly like him. Suddenly, a flood of old feelings rushes back to her. She has met the love of her life... again. Robin Williams also stars. (PG-13 - 92 minutes)

Joseph: It may take most audiences a little while to get into “Divergent” and completely comprehend the unique qualities created exclusively for its incredibly imaginative world - especially if you are entirely unfamiliar with the books on which the new action adventure is based. However, it eventually evolves into the best of the recent young adult film franchises, drawing viewers in with compelling characters and a story that keeps them on the edge of their seats.

Joseph: “The Face of Love” is a film that manages to be both spectacularly suspenseful and remarkably romantic at the same time. Unfortunately, it is also anticlimactic, lightly gliding to its conclusion rather than delivering a far more appropriate dramatic apex. However, it remains completely consuming from beginning to end, using the idea of doppelgangers to demonstrate the role that fantasy plays in attraction as well as how our minds prevent us from ever truly letting go of lost love.

The following quotes were pulled from interviews conducted by AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists with talent speaking on behalf of movies recently released in theaters.

Actors Jai Courtney and Miles Teller (‘Divergent’) By Joseph J. Airdo

“On the page I guess that I thought Peter was a little more onedimensional - especially when I read the book. I was like, ‘Oh man! This is guy is just mean all of the time. He

just says ‘Stiff’ after every sentence. And he is always just kind of like the picking on [Shailene Woodley’s character].’ So, for me, it was nice to just kind of get into that headspace. I mean, the kid is very competitive. He wants to be the best in the program. But he is also very mischievous and conniving. What I learned is that you don’t always have to worry about who likes you. And that is fine sometimes.” - Miles Teller “It doesn’t require much of a transformation for me. I think that you probably have a tendency to try to

make your characters as likable as possible - even when you are playing someone who is not supposed to be. So that was probably the challenge; remembering that you are not supposed to be liked. I would often try to just instinctively be a little more charming or something with the character and [director Neil Burger] was always telling me to kind of just make him dead and flat. “Eric is interesting because his attitude may kind of reflect the fact that he is a [ jerk] or whatever but in the early part of the training there is

a drive there. He wants the initiates to be as fit and as strong as they possibly can be. So he is not there to be a [ jerk]. It is just kind of his way. It is his method. I think that is highlighted by the relationship with Four and that kind of dynamic rivalry there. It is fun playing those kinds of stakes - even if you are the guy with the attitude problem. It is always good to kind of get into that. It is a little meatier. I don’t necessarily agree with his approach but I don’t judge him either.” - Jai Courtney

SOUNDBITE SPOTLIGHT

Behind-the-Scenes – ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ By Stan Robinson Ralph Fiennes plays a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel who befriends his lobby boy (Tony Revolori). The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune. (R - 100 minutes) The trademarks of writer/director Wes Anderson’s films include eclectic

characters, a basic theme grounded in the realities of the story with the paradox of accentuating the extreme, and, an all-star cast often presenting characters against type. The comedy/

drama ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ doesn’t disappoint and the cast is very impressive. The film’s cast includes Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Léa Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, and Owen Wilson.

ARIZONA LOTUS SISTER STATIONS KFMA ROCK 92 AND KCMT LA CALIENTE, SWAP RADIO FREQUENCIES AS OF MARCH 21st!

of “ThoSe Who Kill” ON A&E NETWOrk •Your character, forensic psychologist Thomas Schaeffer, is brilliant but troubled, and his pursuit of serial killers is damaging to him. What do you think of him?

We identify as human beings with flawed individuals. One of the things that’s really fabulous about television is people get to explore those parts of themselves from a relatively safe vantage point. They can feel emotions that are dangerous to feel, from a pretty safe place. Obviously, in terms of our professions as actors, it’s exciting to play as threedimensional a character as you can.

KFMA ROCK 92 and its sister station KCMT La Caliente 102.1 FM, prepare to change homes as they swap frequencies. As of March 21st, midnight, listeners can tune in to KFMA Rock 92 on the 102.1FM dial. KCMT La Caliente will be available on radio frequencies 92.1 and 101.3FM.

•Did you have to handcuff anybody, or is that out of the realm of a forensic psychologist?

An extensive engineering review in signal strength indicated that both stations target audience will be better served by the switch. Formats and all staff for both stations will remain the same.

I didn’t have to handcuff anyone, which is a shame because I’ve held a lot of guns and handcuffed people, so that would have been easier. I did find some of the forensic speeches a bit tricky. But the biggest challenge for me was, I’ve never done an open-ended TV series before. It’s the first time I’ve done something where I didn’t know what the end was when I accepted the role. It’s the first time I’ve done anything where I didn’t read all the scripts. If you’re shooting a movie, if you wanted to, you could learn the entire movie left, right, upside and down, the first day you walk on the set. But with an open-ended TV show, sometimes the scripts are coming 48 hours before you shoot.Not in a bad way, but it was a real challenge.

“This is an exciting opportunity for KFMA to both enhance and expand the station throughout greater Tucson.”

–Chris Firmage, KFMA Program Director “This change is exciting because our La Caliente audience will be better served. Our coverage will expand to areas where it wasn’t possible for us to be otherwise, especially in areas of the city where there is a high density of Hispanics.” –Enrique Mayans, KCMT La Caliente Program Director For questions or further information, please contact Arizona Lotus General Manager, Steve Groesbeck.
