Holiday Gate Access in the Retreat Village If you live in the Retreat and will be hosting parties during the holiday season, please remember to drop off a complete guest list to the guardhouse if you are not adding those guests to your ABDI account. The guards will call on every guest that they have not been notified of prior to the party. If you are busy having fun and don’t hear your phone ring, your guest may be denied admittance, and that is no way to spread holiday cheer!

Scottsdale Fire Department Program Keeps Seniors Healthy and Safe at Home A fall is the most common emergency medical call the Scottsdale Fire Department receives annually. Since falls can impact the long-term health and well-being of seniors, Scottsdale Fire created its free Home Safe Home program to reduce the number of falls in Scottsdale. “Nationally, one-third of all seniors fall every year,” said Scottsdale Fire Chief Tom Shannon. “We want to drive home the message that serious falls can rob people of their independence.” “Our highly trained paramedics and EMT firefighters provide emergency medical care when a person falls but we

also partner with residents beforehand and work to prevent a fall,” Shannon said. “Once residents understand there are simple ways to make their home and themselves safer, they are ready to take action.” Since more than half of falls occur at home, Scottsdale Fire created the free Home Safe Home program to help prevent falls. “Trained volunteers visit seniors’ homes to check for fall risks and to educate homeowners on fall hazards,” said SFD Public Information Officer Lori Schmidt. “While visiting with the resident, volunteers also can install for

free new smoke alarms and a public safety lockbox, if needed.” Common home tripping hazards include bathrooms without grab bars, unstable footstools and ladders, low room lighting and throw rugs, Schmidt said. If home changes are recommended, the Home Safe Home program volunteers can refer resident to partner nonprofit organizations, Schmidt said. To schedule a Home Safe Home appointment, visit www.ScottsdaleAZ.gov and search “Home Safe Home” or call 480-312-1817.

Our Desert, Our Home What’s in a (Botanical) Name? By Victoria Kauzlarich, Volare As it turns out, quite a lot. Botanical names oftentimes play homage to the individuals who claim to have discovered a plant’s species. They sometimes describe a plant’s characteristics like those we’re featuring this month: Cylindropuntia - which literally means “prickly cylinders”. And, sometimes, the botanical name and the common name are one in the same, like Agave and Aloe, for instance. There is way more here than meets the eye but, for our purposes, we’re going to keep this simple. Botanical names are important because they serve to clearly distinguish one plant from another. The problem for most of us is that we learn about plants and come to know them by their common names. Botanical names are really forbidding and remembering them is even more so. Anyone up for a short course in Latin? Anyone? Anyone? Yeah, that’s what I thought. But, here’s the thing. If you don’t know a plant’s botanical name, you can be misled. A single plant with a single botanical name can have many common names and there are common names, well, common to multiple plants with different botanical names. Huh?

the same plant because they look so much alike. Then I did a little research and began to think of these plants as cousins.

A little more explanation… I knew just by their appearance that these are Cholla - all cacti that have cylindrical segments are commonly known as Cholla (pronounced CHOYYa). Remember the Teddy Bear Cholla and Chain Fruit Cholla from last month’s column? By way of contrast, all cacti that have padded segments are commonly known as Prickly Pears. But I digress. The plant pictured here is a Buckhorn Cholla (Cylindropuntia acanthocarpa) and, yes, I had to look that up. Buckhorns flower yellow in April and May and get to be about 4’h x 5’w at maturity. Buckhorns have a slow growth rate and can be pruned to control their overall size. Buckhorn stems have light blue/gray skin that resemble deer antlers. These cacti are Sonoran natives.

Let me explain. There is a shrub, native to Australia, that grows well here in the Sonoran desert. It is called an Eremophila hygrophana and, yes, I had to look that up. When I first learned about this plant, I learned it by what I thought was its single common name: “Blue Emu Bush”. Many local nurseries know this plant as “Blue Bells” and have never heard of a blue emu bush. But, wait a minute, I know what blue bells are. We used to grow those in Illinois and they don’t look anything like Eremophila hygrophana. Then there is the issue of similar common names for similar botanical named plants. Do you know the difference between a Buckhorn Cholla and a Staghorn Cholla? Neither did I until I started photographing them. Up to that point, I thought they were

The plant pictured here is a Staghorn Cholla (Cylindropuntia versicolor), also a Sonoran native with stems resembling deer antlers.

When you see these two plants in their natural habitat, you really have to see them near one another to be sure of their differences. Staghorn stems are darker green and the plant gets bigger - way bigger - than the Buckhorn. Staghorns can typically reach a whopping 7’h x 8’w at maturity and have a relatively fast growth rate. Another confusing thing about these plants is that while Buckhorns flower yellow, Staghorns flower yellow, too, but they also flower orange or purple! If you got the common names of these plants confused, you’d have a heck of a time identifying them at a nursery, particularly when the plants are young. If you had the botanical names of these two plants, you would know which plant was which and there would be no mistaking them. Another good reason to have this information at hand is that some nurseries do not have very knowledgeable staffs; they sometimes can’t confirm the identity of a plant, either. But plant growers typically slip a little tag in the plant complete with the botanical name to prevent confusion. Here’s another reason to at least ask (or better yet, look up) a plant’s botanical name. Let’s say you want to buy a Palo Verde tree. Palos are in the Parkinsonia genus (I didn’t have to look up that one) and there are about a dozen different species - some hybrids and a couple of natives. They come in a wide variety of sizes and expected life spans - from 30 years to several hundred. Which do you want? The only way to truly know is to dig into their botanical names to make sure you and the nursery get it right.

Plant of the Month This month’s plant is the Buckhorn Cholla - the smaller and slower growing of the two Chollas we featured here. If you’ve got a fairly big spot to fill - away from foot traffic, browsing pets and small children this is a funky and rewarding native plant. It is nearly bullet-proof and can withstand all variations of Sonoran desert weather.


Plant of the Month: Buckhorn Cholla Latin Name: Cylindropuntia acanthocarpa (formerly Opuntia acanthocarpa) Common Name: Buckhorn Cholla ( Pronounced CHOY-Ya) Native Distribution: Sonoran Desert Size: Approximately 4’h x 5’w at Maturity Flower: Yellow to Brownish Yellow Flowers Appear in April - May Stems: Gray/Green, 6 - 12” Long, Covered with Yellow to Brown 1” Spines; Stems are Weakly Attached; Resemble Deer Antlers Site Preferences: Full Sun in Sandy Soil with Good Drainage; No Supplemental Watering Once Established

Plant Characteristics: • Slow Growth Rate • Drought Tolerant • Cold Hardy to 25F • Propagate From Segment Removal • Plants Should Be Sited With Care – Do Not Plant Near Walkways – Keep Away from Children & Pets

Landscape Uses: Best in Natural, Open Settings; Can Be Used as an Accent; Muted Color Associates Well with Dark Green Foliage Shrubs, Golden Barrels, Elephant Food & Blue Glow Agave

Sip and Tell By Sue Lukenbill, Encore Resident November is one of my favorite months because it always reminds us to be thankful, and I really love all the feel good vibes floating around. I know it is something we should do year round. Why is it that we always seem to wait until November and Thanksgiving? My gratitude and thanks encompasses many things, some of which include Grayhawk. I am grateful for being lucky enough to enjoy great memories in Grayhawk for almost 21 years. I’m also grateful for our Board of Directors and CCMC as our management company. What would we do without the great staff here in Grayhawk? I know that I would not be a happy camper! They are very dedicated to keeping this community great! And speaking of being thankful…how lucky are we to have so many fantastic choices of places to eat and drink in our area? I know many of you will have visiting friends and family this month, and I want to make sure that you have good choices for your meals. This month I decided to step out of my box big time and try something very different on the recommendations of Joy Lowrie, a resident at the Venu. I liked her idea for this month because it would take our minds off turkey…not that I’m not already dreaming about that Turkey Day spread! We need to try different foods from different countries, at least I know I do! I’m a burger and pizza gal and normally shy away from adventure when it comes to food. Grayhawk’s Director of Communications Jennifer Sheets and I talked about eating at Carvalho’s Brazilian Kitchen over a year ago, but I admit I was nervous about trying more unique cuisine. Joy assured me I would love it and Jennifer was more than excited when I finally agreed to go. I guess I never paid close attention to the menu and the varied choices. The restaurants from-scratch dishes, from seafood to beef, reflect Brazil's diverse geography, from oceans and rivers to rain forests and mountains. I cannot tell you how happy I am to have finally gone! Carvalho’s Brazilian Kitchen brings the flavors of the Amazon and the owner’s family heritage to Scottsdale. The owners, Phil and Ruth Marsteller encourage us to take a peek at their family heritage. They want to take us on culinary journey through Brazil and the Amazon region. The restaurant is based the experiences of Ruth’s father and his love of good food and great wine. Ruth’s father was the son of an Amazon rubber baron and was raised deep in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. When WWII broke out, her father joined the Brazilian Army as a Lieutenant and soon found himself with the Allies in Italy. It was here he was first introduced to great wine and cuisine. The menu reflects family Italian recipes in addition to authentic Brazilian recipes.

Our lunch at Carvalho's was fantastic! They start you off with complimentary fried plantain chips which were a nice change from bread. Jenn knew going in what she wanted to order, but I needed a little more time to work my way through the menu. Our server was extremely helpful and offered plenty of tips on what was most authentic to Brazil. We first started with Pao de Queijo, a Brazilian cheese bread that I’d say is a must order. It’s also gluten free! Jennifer ordered the Feijoada which was a Black Bean Stew that was prepared with oranges, sausage, and smoked meat. It was served with rice, sautéed collard greens, farofa, vinaigrette and orange slices. Knowing she wouldn’t be able to eat it all, she encouraged me to order the Espetinho de Camarao (marinated shrimp skewers) off of the appetizer menu and then also take some of her food. The Feijoada was great as were the shrimp. I’d say that the Feijoada is one of the most popular dishes and I can see why. I’ve also heard great things about some of their shrimp dishes. Jennifer and I hardly ever order dessert, but we splurged at the suggestion of the server and had the Pudim de Leite, the Brazilian Flan with a Caramel Sauce. That was a real treat for both of us. The texture was fantastic. Although we were already stuffed, while waiting for our flan we took the plantain chips and dipped them in the remaining Feijoada. The combo was fantastic! All in all it was a very enjoyable lunch. I liked it so much that I bought a Groupon for the restaurant. The owner, Phil Marsteller, came over a couple of times and visited with us. He seems very passionate about his restaurant and truly wants you to sit back, take your time, and enjoy a little of Brazil right here in Scottsdale. He told us great stories while we waited that really enhanced the experience for us. Lunch was so relaxing that Phil even offered Jenn to use the hammock on the patio. We didn’t want leave! I highly recommend that you stop by and check out Carvalho’s Brazilian Kitchen. At the present time, they are offering Caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail on Sundays and Wednesdays for $5.00. It is made with Cachaças 61, muddled lime, and sugar and served on the rocks. I haven’t had the cocktail, but trust me I will order it in the future. I have been told that it tastes like a Margarita. Please note there they not only have a nice happy hour, but there is live music every Saturday from 5:30 – 8:30pm. You will feel like live you are in Brazil as you listen to some Bossa Nova music. Most importantly, be sure you visit Carvalho’s booth at Grayhawk’s Sunday in the Park event on November 12! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and thank you Grayhawk for the wonderful memories that seem to go on and on. Carvahlo’s Brazilian Kitchen 23623 N. Scottsdale Rd. Ste.

Still Sweet and Salty Game Day Pulled Pork By Lori Bosch and daughter, Stephanie, Cachet at Grayhawk Even though most of our columns focus on healthy eating sometimes you just need some good old-fashioned comfort food. So this is our favorite BBQ pulled pork recipe and it is for all of you tailgaters and weekend couch-lounging sports fans! I know it’s probably easier to buy those prepackaged containers of pulled pork at the grocery store but when you read the package it’s alarming how “processed” it is and that it usually has over 25 ingredients! This is a super easy recipe and your house will smell heavenly as it cooks all day in the slow cooker. The sauce tastes awesome…it is sweet and tangy and doesn’t have that fake store-bought barbecue sauce taste. If you don’t eat pork you can substitute chicken breasts. To add a little more nutritional value we use Heinz organic ketchup in the sauce and serve it on whole grain buns. But if you want to be really healthy it tastes delicious on a sweet potato too. It freezes well so I usually double the recipe and freeze half. That’s it. You’re going to love this one so get cooking! And always, always, always, allow yourself some comfort food on game days. Just try to squeeze in a work-out before you watch the game! We welcome your feedback, suggestions and recipe requests! Please feel free to email us at boschl@me.com.

Game Day Pulled Pork Total time: 10 minutes Ingredients: • 1 medium apple, peeled and chopped • 1 chopped Vidalia sweet onion

1. Place the chopped apple, onion, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, dark brown sugar, cider vinegar and salt into slow cooker and stir.

• 1 ½ cups ketchup (organic Heinz)

2. Add the pork and cover in sauce.

• 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce

3. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.

• 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

4. Remove pork from slow cooker and shred with two forks. It should easily fall apart. Use a masher to smash the cooked apple pieces and blend into the sauce.

• 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar • 2 teaspoons salt • 2 lbs uncooked lean pork tenderloin (cut each tenderloin into 3 equal pieces) • 1 tablespoon corn starch (optional)

5. If you like the sauce a little thicker you can mix 1 tablespoon corn starch with 2 tablespoons water and add to slow cooker. 6. Return shredded pork to slow cooker and stir into sauce. 7. Cover and continue to cook on high for another 30-60 minutes.

Landscaping Post-Summer Landscape Check By Jim Carter, DLC Resources Field Manager Scorching summer heat can really take a toll on our landscapes — even those plants and trees that are desert-adapted. Now that the record temps are well behind us, it’s a good time to take stock of how well your front and backyard weathered the summer season and determine what you can do to revitalize your curb appeal before the frost hits.

Irrigation Check In the desert, your irrigation system is the lifeblood of your landscape. So it’s crucial that it’s functioning properly. Whether or not you see any dead or struggling plants in your landscape, it’s always a good idea to do a basic irrigation system check once or twice a year. Start with the timer to make sure all the electrical components are working properly. Then, check that the emitters are dripping well, spray heads are not clogged or leaking and that there are no other leaks along the lines. Once the system check is complete, and all necessary repairs are done, don't forget to set a new watering schedule in the timer for the current season needs. Water Use It Wisely’s Landscape Watering Guide (www.wateruseitwisely.com) is a great online resource for learning how to properly set your irrigation system.

Agave weevils cause agave plants to droop.

Heat-Damaged Plants Heat stress and sun scold is common in the Valley. While any plant can be susceptible to heat damage (especially considering the record temps we saw for a prolonged period this year), you might especially notice it if you have non-desert-adapted plants or if you have shade-dependent species located in sunny areas. You can tell your plants are heat-damaged if they have brown and dead leaves on their outer portions but are still green in the center. Another sign is wilting. If your sun-damaged plant is still alive, you can prune off any damaged material. However, make sure you’re cutting entire branches off just above their joints; never simply snip off the tips of branches as that will hurt the plant’s structure and cause extra growth at the branch ends. For heavy branches, use a three-cut method as shown in the illustration.

Heat damage looks like dry, brown leaves on the outside of the plant while the center or more shaded portions are still green. Wilting is another common symptom.

Insect Damage Pests are another reason that you might see dying or dead plants this time of year. Agave Weevils, Flathead Bores and grubs are the most common culprits. Agave Weevils are found only in the Agave plant, and one of their telltale signs is fronds shriveling and falling to the ground. Bore damage to trees will have tiny holes in the branches or trunk of the tree. Grubs will be found in the plant roots, which you’ll probably only notice when removing the plant after it dies. Unfortunately, by the time insect damage is noticed it's usually too late to save the plant. But if caught immediately, you might still have a chance. Use insecticides (available at garden stores) to treat these pests, following package directions. Even if you’ve given up hope on saving the plant’s life and are just going to replace it, it’s still important to treat the soil for any pests that killed your previous plant.

When cutting off large branches, make sure you use the 3-cut method, which is designed to help prevent damage to the tree and its bark.

Plant Replacement When it comes to plant or tree replacement, October is ideal for planting non-frost-sensitive plants and trees, though you still might be able to squeeze in some new plantings now in November. However, for frost-sensitive shrubs and trees, you’ll definitely want to wait until March for their replacement. When picking out your new plants, make sure you know their full-grown size so that you can be sure they’ll have enough space in your landscape when they mature. Also, keep sun, shade and water requirements in the forefront of your mind. Finally, remember that any newly planted trees or shrubs need frequent watering during its establishment period, which is usually 2 to 3 weeks.

TRAVEL BACK IN TIME AT POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION Looking for something to do this fall with company or bored kids? Head over to the Arizona Science Center for POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION. The exhibition examines life in Pompeii both before and after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24, 79 A.D. The exhibition will run from November 18, 2017 through May 28, 2018. On August 24, 79 A.D., the Roman city of Pompeii was frozen in time by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius, burying everything in its path for more than 1700 years. The same ash and debris from Vesuvius’ unpredicted eruption that destroyed the city also remarkably preserved it. In this blockbuster exhibition, guests will become time travelers, transported to the bustling commercial port and strategic military and trading center of Pompeii. Over 200 precious artifacts on loan from the unparalleled collection of the Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy, including wall-sized frescoes, mosaics, marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, statues and ancient Roman coins, will bring to life how Pompeii’s people lived, loved, work, worshipped and celebrated. In perhaps the most powerful portion of the exhibition, exquisite body casts of adults and children will vividly communicate the emotions of the victims. The exhibition will begin with a dramatic video that introduces Pompeii. Guests will then journey through the ancient city, where they will encounter a Roman villa, a market, temple, theater, and

baths. From there, they will witness the impact Mount Vesuvius had on this ancient city as they experience a simulated volcanic eruption in a 4D theater. The exhibition will culminate with the reveal of authentic full body casts of human forms, poignantly dramatizing the impact of the extreme heat and noxious gases that left them forever frozen in time. A small, separate section of the exhibit will feature erotic art in a replica of a Pompeii brothel. Parental discretion is advised for this portion of the exhibition, which is not suitable for all ages. TICKET INFORMATION POMPEII: The Exhibition requires a timed-entry ticket. Advance purchase is highly recommended. Guests can purchase tickets online at azscience.org/pompeii, or in person at Arizona Science Center. POMPEII: The Exhibition tickets are $11.95 for adults and $9.95 for children (3–17). Arizona Science Center Member pricing is $9.95 for adults and $7.95 for children. General Admission is required for non-Members and is $18 for adults, $13 for children and $16 for seniors. POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION is generously supported locally by APS, Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Arizona and U.S. Bank and is located on Level 3 in the Sybil B. Harrington Galleries at Arizona Science Center.
