By Andrea Justice Southeast Valley Ledger On Friday, July 19 at 9:50 p.m. a local man was involved in a motorcycle accident at the corner of Hunt Highway and Bella Vista in San Tan Valley. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received multiple calls regarding the accident. Witnessing parties contacted the sheriff’s office along with EMT personnel to report that a motorcycle was on the ground and the driver was screaming and covered in blood. The victim, Mr. Starner, was taken to Banner Ironwood and flown out to Scottsdale Osbourne with multiple injuries. Starner’s wife Kelly stated that the accident was a result of wet roads and poor road conditions. She explained that they were traveling in different vehicles and had met for dinner earlier in the evening. After visiting with friends the couple decided on a late night snack from Jack in the Box. “I was in front and he was traveling behind me on his motorcycle at 45 mph. When we got to the turns for Fry’s, I had missed the first entrance and he found that the second turn had many bumps. Since the turning lane was filled with water, the road condition in that area was all tore up,” said Kelly. “My husband lost control of his bike, but was able to gain enough control to not hit anyone or get hit.” Kelly commented that her husband spent the next four days in the hospital nursing his injuries. “He is one lucky SOB,” said Kelly. “I love my husband Accident, Page 9

Letters from some young readers Rusty Parenteau

Artist, Author, Teacher

Dear Readers: Over the past week or so, the Southeast Valley Ledger has received letters to the editor from some of our younger readers. We wanted to share these letters as they were sent to us. So rather than retype the letters into our standard format, we thought you’d enjoy reading them as they were actually written, in the children’s handwriting. As best we can tell they are from a Scout Troop in San Tan Valley-Queen Creek. Thank you for sending them to us. If you know more about these letters, we’d love to hear from you. Please email info@SEVLedger.com. /s/ Jennifer Carnes Southeast Valley Ledger Managing Editor

When did you first become interested in public service/ the community? When my husband, Frank, and I moved to the San Tan Valley in 2008, we came with a community active mind set. In fact, I was born a Preacher’s Kid, and my Dad and Mom lived the example of being involved in helping people. My youngest brother worked in the Reagan White House. He shared some pretty exciting stories! What is your proudest achievement thus far? I don’t know about “proudest achievement…” Being involved in highly recognized groups such as the Portrait Artists of Arizona (PAOA), being a member of the Greater San Tan Chamber of Commerce and the Coolidge Performing Arts Center, teaching drawing classes with CAC Lifelong Learning, all this makes life here in the Valley an adventure. Being a founding member of the San Tan Valley Substance Abuse Coalition (STVSAC) is a profoundly deep honor. Getting to work with Sheri George and the rest of the STVSAC team; to see NotMYkid come to the Valley; to share involvement in the county Drug Court; see the drug drop box set in place; getting to participate in the information booths and at times hand out drug testing kits to parents; to know of all the lives that have been positively impacted by the Coalition – now that truly is a blessing. What additional improvements to Queen Creek/ San Tan Valley and the surrounding region do you strive to achieve? A better spirit of cooperation. Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them: “Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.” Luke 11:17 What’s your favorite thing about this region? Arizona is an incredible state because of its people. That’s why I enjoy drawing portraits of folks around here. They are kind of like the cactus - you can’t find a tougher plant. It experiences severe extremes, yet continues to grow, and then suddenly surprises you with the most amazingly beautiful flower the world has ever seen. Who are your personal heroes? My Hero Hubby, Frank; Abraham Lincoln; Dietrich Bonheoffer; Francis A Schaeffer; Amy Carmichael; Ruth Seifert, my college teacher and mentor; Kay Warren, pastor’s wife and author of Dangerous Surrender; and most of all Jesus, who gives me faith, salvation, and the courage to go forward. What is your favorite film? Dessert? Sports team? Film: Galaxy Quest. Dessert: anything chocolate, usually at Sweetie Pease or at Frost. Sports Team: The Arizona Cardinals! (is there another team?) – oh- Diamondbacks and Coyotes!!

PetSmart ‘Bully Breed’ policy irks animal lovers, but alternatives are available By Bridgette Crosby Southeast Valley Ledger A reader recently contacted the Ledger and requested an investigation into PetSmart Doggie Daycare Policy after the Petsmart #1191 located at 2860 E. Germann Rd. in Chandler, Ariz. refused to admit an English Bull Terrier puppy into their doggie day camp even after scheduling the puppy and telling the owner on the phone that the puppy would be admitted. Olive, the puppy in question, was 3 1/2 months old at the time, and the owner states that she had wanted to get the puppy socialized. Gina Cucuzella, a friend of the pup’s owner thought the PetSmart Doggie Day Camp was the

The Four Corners of Sports ... with Andrew Luberda

Queen Creek’s Still commits to Loyola Marymount

Queen Creek’s Marcus Still, left, and his coach, Mike Campbell. (Andrew Luberda photo)

By Andrew Luberda Southeast Valley Ledger Queen Creek High School baseball player Marcus Still verbally committed to Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. Still, a senior, was also recruited by Utah, New Mexico, Oregon, Dartmouth, and Arizona. Bulldogs’ head baseball coach Mike Campbell expects Marcus to earn playing time as a freshman at LMU. “His speed and explosiveness will allow him the opportunity to play right away,” Campbell said. “He can get on base and steal a bag if they need him to and he can make some defensive plays in the outfield that others can’t.” Marcus concurred with Coach Campbell about his speed and said the LMU coaches told him he could make an immediate impact. “(The LMU coaches) recruited

me as a centerfielder and said I could come in and start my freshman year,” Still said. “That’s the biggest reason why I chose LMU.” Besides choosing Loyola Marymount for the chance to play right way, Marcus said he chose the Los Angeles area university to be loyal to the school that was the first to offer him a scholarship. “They offered me a scholarship and I was very excited,” Still recalled. “They reached out to me first – before some other schools.” “It’s a great school with a beautiful campus,” Still said. “We took a visit there and the coaches loved my family, we loved the coaches, and just the atmosphere at Loyola.” Up until his senior season, Marcus had been a multi-sport athlete at Queen Creek and was a member of the Bulldogs’ 2013 Div II State Champion football

team. In what he admitted was a difficult decision, he has decided to focus solely on baseball during his senior year. “Football was my first love growing up and then I started playing baseball,” Still said. “I continued to get better at baseball and realized it would be best for my future.” According to Coach Campbell, Marcus is the second player from the Queen Creek baseball program to earn a four-year scholarship. He is proud of all the players who’ve come through the Queen Creek program and advanced to the collegiate level. Campbell said when players like Marcus advance to the next level it increases the desire of other area players to join the Bulldogs’ baseball program. For Still, he knows the next level of his career won’t be his last. He has a chance to be drafted in next Marcus Still, Page 9

STV resident named Player of the Week in NECBL By Andrew Luberda Southeast Valley Ledger Adam Touhey, a San Tan Valley resident and former Florence High School baseball player, was recently named the player of the week in the New England Collegiate Baseball League. Touhey, a member of the Mystic Schooners in the NECBL, is a 2012 graduate of Florence HS. He is entering his sophomore year at the University of Hartford. Touhey, a second baseman for the Schooners, hit .556 with three doubles, a triple, seven RBI, five steals, and a .636 OBP for the week. The NECBL is an acclaimed summer league which consists

of some of the top talent in the area. Touhey wanted to play in a summer league that would provide a challenge and tough competition. “I told my coaches from Hartford I wanted to play in whatever league was the best talent-wise,” Touhey said. “I have a teammate from Hartford who played on the Schooners last year and we were able to set it up so I could play with him.” Adam is extremely motivated to achieve his childhood dream of playing Major League baseball. The experience he’s gaining at the University of Hartford and in the NECBL will help his dream become a

reality. “When I was younger I was always in the backyard with my little glove and I’d have a racquet ball that I’d throw off the wall for hours and pretend I was a pro baseball player,” Touhey said. “Ever since I was six or seven years old I’ve always wanted to be a pro and become famous like Derek Jeter.” “It’s always been a huge dream of mine to become a pro baseball player,” Adam continued. “Playing baseball is something I love to do and I honestly couldn’t think of anything else I’d rather do with my life.” As the summer league

seasons winds down, Adam is looking forward to returning home despite the extreme temperatures most of us wish to escape. “I’m planning on returning home for two weeks, possibly three, once our season ends before I have to go back to Hartford and report in September,” Adam said. “It’s always a better temperature in Arizona compared to the east coast because of the humidity.” Of course, humidity is always easier to deal with in the Major Leagues. For more information on Adam and to follow his career as he ascends, please visit www.adamtouhey.webs.com.

STV American Legion names scholarship winners By Andrew Luberda Southeast Valley Ledger San Tan Valley American Legion Post 97 awarded $500 scholarships to Dustin Blevins, Caleb Gilbert, and Jordan Lopez. The award ceremony took place at The Terrace Restaurant located at the golf club at Johnson Ranch on July 20, 2013. The award winners participated in the Legion Baseball program which is sponsored by the STV American Legion. Post 97 sponsored four San Tan Valley area teams this season. All three scholarship recipients were members of the San Tan Valley Patriots. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles have provided donations to American Legion Post 97 which has aided in the support of the Legion Baseball program and other youth programs. STV American Legion Commander Alan Pease says it is the goal of his post to provide an opportunity to youths in the area to participate in sports if they so desire. The

Legion baseball players were able to participate with little, if any, personal expense as a result of the support from the STV American Legion. Commander Pease said the vision for the future includes a community center with baseball fields for youth to use and play sports. He also said the STV American Legion will continue to do their part to support youth programs and assist in providing funds for a youth community center in San Tan Valley. County Attorney Lando Voyles was on hand to award the scholarships to the players. He also presented Commander Pease with a $10,000 donation for American Legion Post 97. Dustin Blevins, a 2013 Poston Butte graduate, said he plans to play baseball at Mesa Community College. He said there is a certain responsibility that comes along with being an American Legion baseball player. “As a person and as a player a lot of kids look up to us,” Blevins said.

“It means a lot to be a role model because I look up to Major League players and I know all the little kids are looking up to us. It feels pretty good.” Dustin thanked some other role models in his life. “I’d just like to thank my parents,” he said. “They made me who I am, they raised me right, and I’d like to thank them both.” Caleb Gilbert, a 2012 San Tan Foothills graduate, just started his sophomore year at Central Arizona College. He said he shared Blevins’ feelings about being a role model as a Legion player. Caleb said he was very appreciative of the support he has received from his parents and knows how important they are in his life. “I want to thank my parents for putting up with me,” Caleb said. “For helping me out with baseball, school, or anything. They’re huge supporters.” Jordan Lopez, a 2014 senior at San Tan Foothills, was not in attendance at the ceremony due to a prior family commitment.

San Tan Valley football player chooses school in South Dakota By Andrew Luberda Southeast Valley Ledger San Tan Valley resident and recent Desert Ridge High School graduate JJ Husar will attend Dakota Wesleyan Universtiy in Mitchell, South Dakota. Husar, a running back, earned the scholarship after being a two-year varsity starter at Desert Ridge. JJ partnered with NCSA Athletic Recruiting Network while going through the recruiting process.

As a two-year varsity athlete, JJ was named to 1st Team All-Conference and led his team to win the regional title for the 2012 season. In 2011, JJ was named to 2nd Team All-State and 2nd Team All-Conference. In a statement from the NCSA Athletic Recruiting Network, public relations spokesperson Kelsey Costales said, “JJ’s selfmotivation and trust in the recruiting process has

Southeast Valley Ledger behaviors. Anti ‘Bully Breed’ laws are in effect across the country, but people are questioning whether they are really effective or if they cause more prejudice against types of dogs that can be loving family pets. In the meantime there are alternatives that dog owners may use to socialize puppies. According to Steve Wood, owner of A Better Dog Home Dog Training in Queen Creek, (www.abetterdog101. com) dog owners do have options when wanting to socialize puppies that could include utilizing smaller pet facilities such as Pete & Mac’s (www.petemac. com) in the East Valley and Pet Paradise in the North Valley, socializing often with friends and families who have dogs, and they could also contact their local vet to see if the clinic offers any sort of supervised playdates. Wood stated that, “Although some breeds have been bred to be aggressive, early socialization is really very important in the overall

picture as the dog matures. Dogs have a very small window of time to be socialized, and the closer a dog gets to 18 weeks that window starts to close, the dog will be less open to learning and socializing.” Wood also recommends that socializing as early as possible is really important, as long as the pup has all of the recommended parvo vaccines. “Positive reinforcement and nurture vs. nature isn’t just a nice sounding phrase, it can and does work.” Wood added that, “Every year, more dogs are put down due to aggression, than to parvo.” Meanwhile, Cucuzella stated that according to recent studies, “Bully Breeds are the third most popularly owned pet in Arizona and urges pet owners not to frequent and support business’s that show prejudice against certain breeds. Singling out certain breeds only makes the perception against them worse, when really it’s the lack of proper socialization and training that cause problems.” In addition, according to

While breed specific legislation is popular in some states and cities across the country, Arizona is one of a few states so far to specifically pass legislation that holds dog owners responsible both civilly and criminally for their pet’s actions and is known as Fabian’s Law, which was passed in 2011. No response was received from PetSmart Corporate Office to inquiries and questions posed regarding this article and their doggie daycamp policy.

The Bubbly Hostess staycations in Scottsdale By Heather Sneed The Bubbly Hostess Special to the Ledger Welcome back! My family recently enjoyed a “staycation” at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch and I wanted to share our experience. We have so many amazing resorts living in the Valley – it’s great to take advantage of them during the summer months when they offer lower pricing and packages! The hubby traveled quite a bit last year, so we have a lot of Hyatt points at our disposal. He also has the highest status level at Hyatt resorts which comes in handy. With this, we get upgraded to premium rooms, receive amenities (e.g., wine and cheese) upon check-in, and have access to the regency club in the hotel. That means

complimentary breakfast and happy hour for us. Our boys thought it would be fun to take our dog along for the staycation – pets less than 50 pounds are more than welcome. She was the most popular guest there. Taking her for walks took some time because everyone stopped and petted her. By our second day, guests and staff were calling her by name! The resort has a 2.5 acre water playground – this was the highlight for our boys. Complete with a corkscrew slide, a splash pad in the middle, and a beach area. Who could ask for more? The first night we dined at Alto; this gave us our four complimentary passes to ride the onsite gondola, complete with gondolier. Although the finest dining in the resort, thumbs up

to Alto for also having a children’s menu. Saturday morning we headed to The Club for breakfast then out to the water park. The little one was too short for the slide but my (almost) 7-year-old couldn’t get enough! Both boys favored the beach area and built lots of sand castles. It was easy enough to order lunch at the pool and dine on our lounge chairs. That evening, resort was showing “The Croods” at the pool. Another round of amenities were delivered to our room and we headed to The Club for some appetizers and cookies. Unfortunately, when the rain rolled in, the movie was canceled. We found ourselves in the Center Stage Bar area (a large open area just below the lobby offering live music) and enjoyed more

appetizers for dinner to complete our night. We were able to get back out to the pool again for a little bit on Sunday, but the rain returned and we headed back home. Overall we had a great time and a positive experience at the resort. Having such a great water park really made it fun for our boys as well. I hope you’ll stop by my blog or Facebook page and tell me where you staycationed this summer! Please stop by my Facebook page or blog and leave a comment. You can find me at www. thebubblyhostess.blogspot. com. You can also “LIKE” my page on Facebook at on.fb.me/ZmpQ1L. Lastly - always remember to make the most out of your planning, so you have time to enjoy your champagne…
