Living In Anthem & Loving It!

Can We Sell For a Profit Yet? Dear Doreen, I have been really worried about selling my home and losing money. But lately I have been hearing stories about bidding wars and sellers getting to take their pick of multiple offers. Is this true? Can I sell my home for a profit? —Gimme Good News! Dear Gimme, In order to tell you if you can make a profit, I need information such as: • How much do you owe? • How much did you put down? • What upgrades have you added? • What do you consider “breaking even?” Selling for what you currently owe or selling for what you owe, plus what you put down and what you put into upgrades and renovations? Prices are going up, but by no means are they skyrocketing. The farther the fall, the harder the climb back up. —Doreen

Catastrophic Fire Averted Through Quick Response


fire that broke out in an Anthem garage Monday, Aug. 20 was quickly extinguished resulting in minimal damage, according to Daisy Mountain Fire Capt. Dave Wilson.


Shalimar Salon & Spa

Residents of a home on West Kit Carson were inside the home when the smell of smoke led them to the garage, Wilson said. The homeowner saw fire coming from his BMW and attempted to extinguish it using a hose and a fire extinguisher, but was unsuccessful, Wilson said. Daisy Mountain

fire crews descended on the scene quickly, as well as a unit from Glendale and City of Phoenix. The fire was contained to the vehicle and garage, Wilson told In&Out. “It could have been catastrophic,” Wilson said. “The fuel load is incredible because [cars] are made of plastics and foil and gasoline… lots of flammable materials,” he said. Wilson credits the quick response of the homeowners and the fire crews for averting disaster. io

Rising Above the Flood


The Daisy Mountain Painting crew withstood 100-degree temps donating its services inside the Vides house. By Nadine Shaalan


eople think just because you live in Anthem, you are rich. That’s not true. We work hard. I work two jobs.” René Vides stood, exhausted, in the small backyard of his now well-known home, crooked cyclone fences where block walls once stood. “At least you can see it now,” said Vides of his pool. Three weeks ago it was an invisible hazard submerged with the rest of his yard and part of his house. David Fladhammer of Emerald Pool and Spa drained and acid-washed the pool, fixed the in-floor cleaning system

and replaced the motor. Fladhammer was one of many who volunteered time, materials, expertise and money to help the Vides get back home after the devastating storm of July 31 washed out their property and those on either side of them. No sooner had the insurance adjuster delivered the news that their home was not covered, when a second wave hit the neighborhood.

The Second Flood

The BCHS baseball team, a contingent of area school teachers, the fire department, families with children, the CERT team— groups of people descended

on the neighborhood to help. ReadyAnthem, a network of local churches organized to respond to emergencies, coordinated the clean-up effort, “but the community took the lead in the resources,” said Mike Marshall of ReadyAnthem. Inside, the rooms are small, but the vaulted ceiling gives it a spacious feel. A remnant of Berber still on the stairs hints at the quality of upgrades Vides and his wife worked so hard to afford. Only one small strip of granite survived. The rest went into the dumpster with the water-sodden cabinets. Much has been done: Water and debris removal, drywall replacement, electrical repair, insulation and painting. But much remains before the home is livable: Fixtures, appliances, carpeting, masonry. The shared walls between the neighbors will require some coordination to rebuild, but with the neighbor to the south reportedly in foreclosure, that may prove to be tricky. (Just getting someone to take care of the mosquitoes breeding inside that house has been a challenge, Vides said.) Vides oversees every step. He leaves the home where his family now stays at about 7:30 every morning, said Christina Vides, René’s wife. He

stays at the site sometimes until 10 at night. “He won’t leave… even to get food,” Christina said.


Vides is clearly humbled by the charity of so many, including the nursing home where he now works, for giving him time off to deal with this tragedy. He struggled to name all who have helped, partly because there are so many, and partly, it seemed, because he was still lost in the fog of this ongoing nightmare.

OSR Physical Therapy (Massages)

He stopped to answer his phone: Channel 3 wants another interview in light of the new developments, he said. “Maricopa County said it’s not their fault. Pulte said it’s not their fault.” Vides shrugs.

A Life Punctuated by Loss

Christina tears up as she talks about the difficult life her husband has had. He lost both parents in the war in El Salvador when he was just 13. He managed to make it to the United States where “Papa Rubén” Garcia became his legal guardian and shortly after, Fred Malcolm of New Mexico took René in and raised him with his other four children. “They learned Spanish, and René learned English,” she said.

The Problem With


Putanesca Fresca 1 ¼ lb. heirloom tomatoes or ripe Roma tomatoes, diced 3 Tbsp. red onion, finely chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced ¼ lb. Kalamata olives, pitted, halved 2 Tbsp. capers in brine, rinsed 3 oz. extra virgin olive oil 1 oz. white wine vinegar ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes


4 anchovy fillets, chopped 1 tsp. pecorino Romano cheese



utanesca is one of my favorite tomato sauce recipes and I really miss it. Let me explain. Boy (me) meets girl (my wife). They marry. Boy cooks for girl. Girl is happy. Girl says favorite sauce boy makes is Putanesca. Boy is girl’s hero. Then, two years later, girl discovers her favorite sauce recipe contains anchovies. Girl doesn’t like anchovies. Girl never eats Putanesca again. Welcome to my life. Putanesca is no longer a staple dish in our home. As every spouse knows, you have to pick your battles. Putanesca is now only savored by me when Mrs. Anchovy is out with the ladies. I actually have a laundry list of dishes I prepare only when alone. Liver anyone? Sweetbreads? Tripe? Great food can be a lonely endeavor. Putanesca vibrant, exciting flavors are born from the marriage of tomatoes, onions, garlic, capers, olives, red pepper and, of course, anchovies. Today, I share what I call my “raw putanesca sauce” with you. Instead (See PUTANESCA on Page 21)

¼ tsp. salt 1 lb. spaghetti or your favorite cut of pasta Directions

1 Combine all ingredients together except spaghetti and gently toss. Salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.

2 Cook pasta according to package. Drain and toss with cold mixture. Larry’s tips: Avoiding Carbs? The variations are endless: Serve it over proteins, solo as a side dish, on salads, sandwiches, burgers or veggies.

Nearly 500 students who applied for parking privileges are left with few options.

about speeding, low visibility, blocked access for waste/recycling trucks, litter and noise. Anthem Parkside HOA prohibits he beginning of a new school year parking along neighborhood streets but is brings frustration for some as powerless against the student violators, Boulder Creek High School students since the HOA has no authority to run struggle to find parking. Those not lucky license plates to identify car owners. enough to be able to purchase one of the Nearby neighborhoods successfully 504 $40-passes from the school are left petitioned the county, street by street, for to trawl for nearby parking off campus. “No Parking” signs, pushing young drivers DVUSD spokesperson Ashley Morris said further and further from school. 1,000 students applied this year. “I think the ‘No Parking’ signs are BCHS Senior Micah Smith who lives reasonable because we’re parking in front in Desert Hills and rides to school with of people’s houses. But it is our only classmate Tanner Conrad told In&Out, option,” said Smith. “Parking at the school is a huge hassle… Jim Manly of Steinbeck Court wants the application process is disorganized. signs posted on his street. “The high school All the spots fill up and our only option is to park on the streets around the school. It kids are parking here and it became a seems like no one at the school really cares safety concern for our kids on this street,” Manly said. He’s urging neighbors to sign if the students have places to park.” a petition. By Amanda Niemerg


More Cars, More Complaints

The flood of students in the surrounding neighborhoods brought a litany of complaints from residents in years past 16 |


| AUGUST 30, 2012

John Counts, MCDOT traffic studies manager, said Steinbeck Court is the last cul-de-sac near BCHS without the signs. MCDOT requires 100 percent participation

from homeowners on a cul-de-sac for signs to be placed there, he said. “It’s ineffective in a small area like a culde-sac if the signs are not posted where they need to be,” Counts said. Larger streets such as Courage Trail require just 51 percent of homeowners to sign on because enforcement is easier, he said. But Diana Thompson, also on Steinbeck Court, won’t sign the petition. “The signs are ugly. They’re up all year, not just the 180 days kids are in school,” Thompson said. “The problem is the kids don’t have a place to park. The school needs more spaces. The issue should be taken up with the school, not the students who are just trying to get to school. Some of them come from New River or somewhere else. Where are they supposed to park?” she asled.

A Nearby Option

Morris said the school district has no plans to build a parking structure at any of its schools and that staff suggests students without permits park on neighboring streets where allowed, or at the Caepe School, which offers parking permits to BCHS students for $15 a month. “We want to be a resource for students without a spot at the high school. We’re happy to do that,” said Marc Hayes, director of operations at Caepe. Hayes said Caepe can make up to 50 spaces available. Students can apply for a parking permit at the Caepe’s office. Parkside Community manager Annette McCarthy said the HOA and Community Council have been in contact with BCHS, MCDOT and MCSO. “Our hope is that we have the ‘No Parking’ signs up so the students will find it inconvenient to park far from the high school. It’s been a huge joint effort to solve the issue and we think it’s been successful.” McCarthy said the Community Council has looked at allowing students to park at the Community Park, but did not reach a decision. io

of concocting the sauce with canned tomatoes, I prepare it with heirloom tomatoes—now in season—bursting with sweet flavor and unique colors. Serve the chilled sauce over hot pasta. The sauce is basically a pumped-up cugino (cousin) of the traditional tomato topping commonly served with bruschetta. Play with the ingredients by adding mint or basil, or by simply omitting what you don’t care for. The tomato is your canvas; create a masterpiece. Doh! I just had an idea: I can make the girl her favorite sauce without the anchovies. Or, I can sneak the anchovies back in as matter of principle. She loved the sauce before she knew anchovies were an ingredient, right? Boys will be boys! Ciao, Bella! io
