MEET MR. JAMAL ARBERRY,

VETERAN AND INSTRUCTOR AT PRIMAVERA

M

r. Jamal Arberry is an English instructor at Primavera Online High School who enjoys reading, cooking and volunteering at the Phoenix Zoo in his spare time.

“I was attached with a Marine Security Element in which the mission was part of Operation Enduring Freedom- Philippines. Many people might not know that there are jihadist terrorist down in those parts.

Before helping students, Mr. Arberry was an active military member who served overseas.

One night, we were invited to an event in which the people of Zamboanga City wanted to show their appreciation for us, the U.S. military. We had the opportunity to mingle with the locals and we got to watch some native dances. A lot of the kids became particularly fascinated with me when they found out I was Filipino, so they wanted to take pictures with me.”

Right after high school, Mr. Arberry went to North Carolina to join the Marine Corps. Although at first he joined so he could escape his small hometown, Mr. Arberry said that being a part of the military became something he was proud to have accomplished. “The Marine Corps gave me the opportunity to acquire skills that benefitted me beyond what I did while I served,” said Mr. Arberry. Mr. Arberry told us about a time when he was stationed in Zimboanga City, Japan in 2005. There, he made lasting friendships with the residents.

That event became a moment Mr. Arberry now treasures as he made lasting friendships with the people there. “It was a really good time, especially for me,” Mr. Arberry said. “Because I was able to enjoy tons of food I was familiar with, like Filipino rice cakes and roasted pig on the spit.”

Upon his return to the United States, Mr. Arberry decided to become a teacher. He has since helped many students succeed, and believes in pushing them to be their best selves, as he told us in this story below. “I had a student who told me she wanted to know what she can do to just pass her course, what she can do to get a D. I told her I will not accept that and she will have to strive higher than a D. I told her in order for me to help her she must be willing to put that effort into striving better than just a D. At the end of her course, she finished with a B+.” When it comes to challenging yourself, there is one important thing Mr. Arberry wants you students to remember: Don’t be afraid to fail. “There are those who hold back on doing things because they are afraid of what the result may be. There are those who are afraid because if they fail, they are worried of what others will say to them. Don’t let that bother you. It is okay to be selfish sometimes

through life’s journey because as you start reflecting back on your life as you get older you want to be able to say, “Yeah, I did that,” and not “Gosh, I wish I would’ve done that.” As you continue through your life’s journey go and do good, make mistakes, make a fool of yourself every now and then, go and own opportunity and take all these experiences and become the great person you know you can be.” We hope you all have a great Independence Day. As you celebrate this weekend, don’t forget to take some time to remember the people like Mr. Arberry who make this country’s freedom possible.

P

hoenix is one of the hottest cities for homebuyers.

A recent Zillow study suggests there is a shortage of in-demand homes in Phoenix. In fact, Phoenix Metro was named one of the top 10 cities. More buyers with less inventory means prices are on the rise, too. According to the study, Phoenix has seen an overall 9-percent increase in values. The largest deficit is among bottomtier homes. This is reflected in my experience with HomeSmart as well. Offers for homes below $300,000 are pouring in. There has been a 20-percent decrease in homes around this price range, according to the study. Mid- and top-tier homes have only decreased by 6.6 and 4.1 percent, respectively. Sellers and buyers are both having a hard time finding their perfect home, which further reduces the available inventory. As the market stands, sellers want to find their new, tradeup home before selling their current one. Due to the lack of available homes, the market is becoming more competitive and prices are increasing.

The high-demand in low-tier homes is also due to a larger number of people who can now secure loans. Many owners who lost their homes in the downtown are out of their seven-year penalty box for conventional loans. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan rules have also changed. Buyers can apply for loans with low

interest rates within three years of losing their homes. Phoenicians can get up to $271,500 in FHA financing, which means mortgage payments as low as $1,500 to $1,800 per month. Everyone is smarter when buying a home than they were a decade ago. Many people are downsizing and don’t want to pay more money per month to manage and maintain a property beyond their means. Downsizing has been a blessing in disguise for my own neighborhood. I purchased a home for $250,000 in December 2014. My property value has increased to more than $300,000 since then. Why? My neighbors! Older couples and empty nesters are downsizing, while Millennials are moving into these recently vacated homes to start families of their own. This reactivates neighborhoods and forms communities, which also raise home values. For those who are worried about the demand outnumbering the supply in Phoenix for much longer, keep in mind that the market is selfcorrecting. New building permits for homes are up, which means the inventory will balance out.

Jennifer Ridenour is a consulting broker and agent development manager at HomeSmart International.

HEALTH HOT HEALTH TIPS FOR HOT TEMPS By Carrie McCahan

N

o one wants to be the parent who takes away the SuperSoakerzs during an excessive heat warning this summer. Parents who want to keep a cool head

just need to be informed. Arizonans are expected to experience record-breaking high temperatures, but a few quick tips can see them safely through August. There is no hard and fast rule for preventing heat stroke. The risk

depends on the activity. HEAT EXHAUSTION VS. STROKE Heat exhaustion symptoms come well before those of heat stroke. They include flushed skin, dizziness, nauseated or irritable behavior. A child

may also stop playing or seem lethargic. If parents notice this, they should try to cool their child off with air conditioning and a spray bottle of cool water for 20 minutes before resuming activity. Heat stroke is more severe and may include delirium and vomiting. These symptoms may require emergency care. SMART SUNSCREEN USE Forty percent of sunscreens recently tested by Consumer Reports were far below their listed SPF protection value. Research your brands before you buy them. The two sunscreens that had a perfect score were Trader Joe’s Spray with an SPF of 50 and La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Melt-in Sunscreen Milk lotion with an SPF of 60. For kids, top testers were Coppertone Water Babies, Pure Sun Defense 50 Disney Frozen and Up&Up Kids Stick. TIMING IS EVERYTHING Peak hours for sun are between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you’re only outside for an hour, regular water should keep you properly hydrated. Anything longer than that requires electrolytes. Watered down Gatorade, if you’re concerned about sugar, is just fine. LAY IT ON THICK Apply two to three times what you think is a “normal” amount of sunscreen. Don’t pass all the responsibility of protecting your skin to sunscreen. If you can, try sunscreen clothing or hats. SCHEDULE HYDRATION Time outside, even in the pool, should be punctuated by hydration breaks. Every 30 minutes, have your child stop for a drink. Even a few sips can go a long way. Make water breaks more fun by putting berries, cucumber or citrus in it with a splash of soda water. COOL TREATS Popsicles are a summer staple, but try to serve them in moderation. Making your own iced treats can allow you to control the sugar content. There are thousands of recipes online for you to try. Carrie McCahan is a Certified Family Medicine Physician Assistant at Bayless Primary Care.

FOR YOUR AD

he past several years, more Arizonans have come to enjoy setting off fireworks around New Year’s Eve and Fourth of July. It hasn’t always been that way. For decades, fireworks were illegal in Arizona. On Dec. 1, 2010, that changed. Municipalities were able to pass laws permitting the use of certain kinds of fireworks. However, the law created confusion in many places. Although it might be legal to purchase fireworks in a city, that same city could still outlaw their use. Last year, the legislature again took action to further a more widespread, consistent use of fireworks. In Maricopa and Pima counties, certain fireworks are legal to sell and use certain times of the year. Municipalities in these counties cannot outright ban the use of certain types of fireworks on private property, except under very limited conditions. For example, fireworks can be banned within a mile of a preserve or during times of extremely dry, dangerous conditions. In other Arizona counties, towns and cities are free to pass their own ordinances and can issue outright bans. The list of “permissible consumer fireworks” (as they are legally known) that must be allowed in Maricopa and Pima counties is limited to ground and handheld sparkling devices, cylindrical fountains, cone fountains, illuminating torches, wheels, ground spinners, flitter sparklers, toy smoke devices, wire sparklers or dipped sticks, multiple tube fireworks devices and pyrotechnic articles. If you are confused as to whether or not a specific firework is legal, you should ask yourself two questions: Does this firework go into the air? Is this firework supposed to explode? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then the firework is not legal. Illegal fireworks include bottle

rockets, skyrockets, missile-type rockets, helicopters, torpedoes, roman candles, firecrackers, aerial shells and mortars. Even with last year’s legislation, there might still be some confusion. The dates during which permissible consumer fireworks can be sold are different from the dates that consumers can actually use such fireworks. Just because your local grocery store may start selling permissible consumer fireworks, this does not necessarily mean the fireworks can be used yet. Arizona law allows the sale of permissible consumer fireworks from May 20 to July 6 and December 10 to January 3. The use of those fireworks (again, at least in Maricopa and Pima counties) is allowed only from June 24 to July 6 and December 24 to January 3. The sale and use of novelties known as snappers (popits), party poppers, glow worms, snakes, toy smoke devices and sparklers are permitted at all times. Because there can still be confusion regarding legalities that are specific to individual locations, it is important that you check with your local fire department for additional regulations and dates before buying and using fireworks. If you are disappointed that bottle rockets and exploding firecrackers are not legal, it may change in coming years. Recently, Arizona House Bill 2398 proposed an expansion in the kinds of permissible consumer fireworks in Arizona to include firecrackers and bottle rockets. Roman candles and large aerial fireworks would remain illegal. The bill narrowly failed in the Arizona Senate. Thus, aerial and explosive fireworks are still illegal. However, you can count on similar bills being debated in the future. Bob Mann is a fireworks enthusiast and senior counsel at The Frutkin Law Firm.
