Insurance Rates Soar

Dear Doreen, What’s up with homeowner’s insurance? I just got my bill and it went up over 20 percent! When I called my agent, he said all companies are raising rates. Is that true? I thought since you are always talking to homeowners in Anthem you might have heard more about this. I understand if you don’t know or it’s out of your area of knowledge. You don’t have to answer. —Insurance Poor Dear Insurance Poor, You are right! The recently released Rate Report shows a considerable increase in the average 12-month

premiums for new homeowner policies in December 2011. Average 2011 premiums in December were $810, a 19-percent increase over January at $682. In other words, homeowners are paying an average of $128 more per year for new homeowners policies. The data represents approximately 15,000 policies sold by such top-rated carriers as Travelers, Safeco, the Hartford, and ASI/Ark Royal. What to do? Shop around. Ask your agent for all eligible discounts such as a home-auto package, and home security system disount. —Doreen

Dog Lovers Beg for a Park


nthem Needs a Dog Park. You say there is one already? Sorry, you are wrong. New River has a dog rescue and a plot of desert it tries to pass off as a park. For 13 years, dog owners have been gathering at ball fields and parks to run their dogs off leash. Recently, the ACC hired MCSO to ticket for this offense. The ticket is a Class 2 misdemeanor and can have a fine of up to $750, plus possible jail time. [See Page 19.] Why don’t the dog owners simply go to New River? Because they live here. They want [a dog park] here, with grass, shade and a bench or two. They don’t want a park with gravel that will burn and tear up their dogs’ paws. They don’t want a dusty park that may infect their animals with Valley fever. They don’t want to pay a membership fee and use entry codes. [Dogs] need exercise. Dogs need to be safe from coyotes and javelina roaming the area. Pedestrians need to feel safe knowing off-leash dogs are confined. A dog park is a necessity to keep a community competitive and attractive. It will draw future homeowners looking for a complete neighborhood. The ACC is going to make a decision on what new facilities should be funded. There are several choices: a BMX track, gardens, hiking trailheads… These would please small groups. But a dog park would service a majority of the population and is long overdue. Log on to anthemlovesdogs. com to give your support. —Pamela Darby Anthem

Leash Law Crackdown Costly citations leave some begging for dog park.

Anthem’s lush parks are a draw for pets and pet owners. We surprised this pup walking alone in Paseo—a neighborhood in Anthem where the homes have no private yard. IN&OUT STAFF PHOTO

By Karen Goveia


group of Anthem pet owners are on a mission to create an off-leash dog park in Anthem, after the Community Council stepped up its efforts to enforce Maricopa County’s leash law.

non-compliance has been an ongoing problem, according to Anthem Community Council CEO Jenna Kollings. When warnings failed to remedy the problem, Council stepped up its efforts to protect citizens and other pets.

begged Council to provide a permanent Natale hopes to lessen the penalty for piece of land for the independent group to build, fund and maintain a dog park off-leash citations and garner support for a pet park through an online petition on its own. Anthem Pets presented a well-developed proposal that was hosted at repeatedly thwarted by Council. (CRACKDOWN from Page 19)

Community Planning and Development Meeting Tuesday, July 3, 9 a.m. Anthem Community Center Supporters of a pet park will present ideas to the committee.

“All we need is a grassy fenced-in area which would be large enough to allow dogs to chase a ball or fetch a Frisbee,” Natale said. Natale suggested the ACC provide land and fencing, and fundraising efforts could facilitate the purchase of benches, waste receptacles and other additional needs. Council said the concept of a leash-free area is currently under review by the Community Planning and Development Committee (which is open to residents and meets monthly to discuss future community projects). A New Old Request The dog park proposal is not new to the Anthem Community Council. Flashback to 2006 when the non-profit Anthem Pets


Those efforts ended when Council sent the group packing and Anthem Pets created its award-winning, ecofriendly dog park at Jackass Acres on the frontage road just outside Anthem’s borders. The park has more than 300 members. No Simple Solution A patch of grass sounds simple enough, but any park that allows dogs costs more because of fencing, permits, EPA regulations, plumbing, planning, hardware and maintenance. Scottsdale and Gilbert, two cities which provide fee-free pet parks, spend roughly $100,000 annually on maintenance. Both require weekly closures for mowing and irrigation. Still, proponents feel that with Anthem’s long list of amenities, including a 63-acre park with fishing lake, athletic fields, sand volleyball courts, hockey rink and skate park, they are entitled to some dedicated space for their dogs to run, fetch, chase and roll. io

Barker of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business. “Not only does it cost us millions of dollars each year… in terms of productivity, but also in lost resources.” Enzo greets customers at Bicycle Vibe on Carefree Highway. “He’s a great ice-breaker,” said owner Amber Mellano.
