We are Local

Dog-friendly hotels — not so much. I knew it was only a matter of time before our aging air conditioning units called it quits. With rather large dogs, I also knew a hotel was not an option if our units died in the middle of the peak season. My wife and I decided to look into replacement before the inevitable occurred. We had five quotes from both local and larger valley contractors. Travis with ProSkill impressed us with his promptness, knowledge, and thoroughness. Travis was the only contractor to do a calculation on our house, then come back and present a proposal in person. I knew I had my guy! Their pricing was beyond fair for top quality units, especially when considering all the extra work they did beyond just “changing out the boxes”, as Travis says. The final install was a work of art, and the team cleaned up with care. I will gladly continue to refer Travis and the ProSkill team to all my neighbors and friends. - Charles H., Magic and Zoe, Anthem Resident

ASK DOREEN

PRE-CERTIFIED HOME Dear Doreen, What next? Now my agent is “strongly suggesting” I pay for a full home inspection once we list our house—like a pre-certified used car, is how she explained it. Why? I know the buyer will always have the home inspected. I’m barely going to get out from under this house and surely don’t have the extra money for a home inspection! How I can avoid this additional expense? Inspect This! Dear IT!, I understand your pain. But there are benefits to being proactive by getting a home inspection first. You know your home’s history. For example, if the inspector finds a water stain on the ceiling, you can inform him that it was an old roof leak that has already been repaired. The inspection will likely turn up maintenance items you forgot, such as cracked roof tiles. These can now become your punch list to tackle leisurely before an offer comes Send your real estate in instead of at closing questions to Doreen.Drew in a panic. And, your @ColdwellBanker.com agent can take the report and turn it into a marketing piece for the home, advertising it as, yes, a pre-certified home. In this market, that’s smart! Doreen

How to Lock in a Lower Rate

Q:

“I read in one of your articles that you’re licensed on all levels of care, and when a client moves in, the rate will NEVER increase? What happens when that person’s needs change? As they get older, and the level of care they need increases, won’t their rate increase?

A:

When someone moves into one of our Anthem homes, the rate is based on the level of care needed at the time they move in. In time, their required care will most likely increase. But, we will never raise their rate for the rest of their life! Where this becomes critically important is in the planning phase.

Let’s say, for instance, your mom is beginning to have stability issues and you feel a fall may be imminent. If she moves into ASR or ASL before she falls, her rate will be lower. But if you delay, and wait until after mom falls and breaks a hip, her level of required care is now quite a bit higher and her rate will be established at the higher rate. Knowing this could save someone many thousands of dollars over time if they are proactive and move into an assisted living home before the fall happens. The difference between Supervisory and Directed level of care could be up to $2,000/month! Multiply that by just two years, and that’s $48,000 savings for not procrastinating.

Independent Living? Assisted Living? Living with Me (or my brother/sister)? Ask the experts! Cheryl Ables began working

in the senior care field 10 years ago, after taking care of her parents and grandparent while raising her children. Sam Ile and his family have been in the business of assisted living homes for more than 20 years. Sam and Cheryl are approaching ten years as owners of Anthem Senior Living. They also operate Eldermom, a senior placement service and, now, Anthem Senior Retreat Assisted Living home. Sam and Cheryl are experts at the unique challenges posed by aging parents. Have a question? Write or call today! 602-909-9550,

Pulte/ACC Give Senior Living Project Green Light

M

errill Gardens, the senior living complex proposed for construction near St. Rose church, cleared a major hurdle when Pulte/ Del Webb transferred declarant rights to the Anthem Community Council. [See, “Council Approves Assisted Living Facility,” In&Out, March 6, 2014.]

The property, previously zoned for use by a school or church, prohibited Merrill Gardens from developing the site. According to Anthem’s governing documents, reassignment of property usage rights fell under the jurisdiction of Pulte/ Del Webb. ACC sought

the reassignment from Pulte/Del Webb, but the developer simply transferred declarant rights to the ACC, effectively giving it the decision. The ACC promptly amended the CC&Rs for the property, allowing construction of the senior living facility to progress.

Fyke Elected Board President

T

im Fyke was seated for a second term on the Anthem Community Council, representing Parkside, and newly elected Roger Willis began serving his first term representing Country Club. After the two were seated, officers were elected. Holly Matson, former president of the board, moved to elect Fyke as new president by unanimous vote. Roger Willis was voted in Tim Fyke as vice president. John Birdseye accepted the secretary position and John Balzer remained treasurer.

t’s been almost three years since Ace Hardware called it quits on its Anthem Way location, leaving residents to fantasize about what might fill the space. Many wished for a specialty food store such as Sprouts or Trader Joe’s. Goodwill tried to take the space in 2012, but was stymied by Council. Now, under new ownership, Ace plans to reopen at 3440 W.

After anchoring the plaza for almost nine years, Ace closed abruptly in October 2011, leaving a note on the door explaining, “the economic environment is making it impossible for us to stay open.” The new Ace, according to Reznick, will have a special section dedicated to the area’s furry family members. The section would include specialty food and toys. Kate Kirkpatrick, spokesperson at Ace Hardware’s corporate office, did not confirm the opening of the store at this time.

“Really? We loved Ace Hardware but wonder how they can compete with Home Depot. I wish them well and will support them.”—Diane Clark Tyson “We loved Ace, that’s great news.”—Danielle Shupnick Hendrickson “Old one was extremely overpriced probably why they are gone. But very convenient for small hardware etc. What we really need back is the bagel shop!”—Vincent Altrui “We heard a rumor that Sprouts was moving into that location. That would be AWESOME…”— Lisa Ring Tibbs “I heard ACE was going where old dollar store was. Seems too small of a space, but that’s what I heard.”—Veronica Cantu JOIN THE CONVERSATION

Last Chance at Adventure Playground

P

arents and children have the spring and early summer to enjoy some last fun moments at the Adventure Playground.

Dec. 5, 2013.] The grand opening of the new Adventure Playground and splash pad is slated to kick-off Autumnfest weekend, Oct. 25 and 26.

After the Fourth of July weekend, the playground will close for demolition and reconstruction, estimated to take about three months. [See In&Out “Adventures for a New Generation,”

At its Feb. 26, meeting, the Anthem Community Council Board approved the renovation project for a cost not to exceed $707,000—the amount budgeted in the 2014 reserve fund.

A Proposal to Garden Together Why some are joining forces to cultivate the community garden concept in Anthem. IN&OUT STAFF PHOTO

aynhia Stott has dreamed of starting an Anthem area community garden for about two years. “After this New Year’s I thought, ‘You know, we always talk about it, but never do anything about it.” Stott said. So, she got a group of friends together to start planning. That group has quickly grown to about 60 people since January. They are not alone. A report by the National Gardening Association

examining gardening trends from 2008-2013 shows community gardens are burgeoning. Two million more households reported participating in a community garden in 2013 than in 2008. And, about 35 percent of Americans are growing food at home, up 17 percent in five years. Millennials (those ages 18–34) are among the fastest growing population of at-home or community garden growers, up 63 percent within the study period. Better Food. Stronger Community. Reasons for growth are varied, ranging from having a safer source of food THURSDAY, MAY 1 & MAY 8, 2014 |

CURRENTS » COMMUNITY to spending less at the grocery. But community gardening is often more about community than it is about gardening. Supporters of community gardens say the activity contributes to local identity and pride. According to the American Community Gardening Association, community gardens bring together people from diverse cultures and different generations and provide a rewarding,

therapeutic and educational activity. The organization said research shows children who participate in the garden learn better in all school subjects. Some gardens share the surplus with local food banks and the elderly, and the garden itself functions as a an attractive focal point. Stott hopes an Anthem garden would provide a place the community can come together to

Why More of us Are Growing Our Own A 5-year study by the National Gardening Association showed 1 in 3 households are now growing their own food.

grow and share fresh produce in a sustainable, organic and ecologically beneficial environment. She envisions also making donations of produce to local food charities. Community gardens are popping up all over Maricopa County, according to University of Arizona Cooperative Extension’s community garden outreach program coordinator Marina Ortiz.

Community gardens offer physical and mental health benefits by providing opportunities to…   Eat healthy fresh fruits and vegetables   Engage in physical activity, skill building, and creating green space   Beautify vacant lots   Revitalize communities in industrial areas   Revive and beautify public parks Create green   rooftops Decrease   violence in some neighborhoods, and improve social well-being through strengthening social connections


“There’s the revitalization of vacant lots. There’s community gardens and small acre farms popping up everywhere. There’s a lot of support out there for anyone wanting to start a garden,” Ortiz said.

to grow produce and flowers in the downtown garden. MUG provides the soil, compost, irrigation, timers, and access to tools and ongoing support for gardeners. Free events and classes are held in the garden as well.

The Logical Amenity. These types of gardens, often planted in urban areas, are becoming more popular in suburban developments. In fact, agriculture— community gardens, orchards, even fullfledged farms with livestock—are the hottest amenity designed to attract buyers, enhance the sense of community and increase property values. Ed McMahon, senior fellow with the Urban Land Institute, told NPR more than 200 developments with agricultural amenities already exist in the country. “Golf courses cost millions to build and maintain, and we’re kind of overbuilt on golf courses already,” he said.

Next steps? According to Stott, her group is still in the planning stage. They don’t yet have land and are still applying for non-profit status. They don’t have an email list or Facebook page where interested parties can keep up with developments. But, she did present her idea to the Anthem Community Planning and Development Committee on April 8, and she said it was wellreceived.

Stott looked to nearby communities for guidance with the formation of Anthem’s garden and focused on the Mesa Urban Garden. MUG rents plots of land

ACC Community Operations Officer Neal Shearer acknowledged the high level of interest in a community garden “in the right location and with a well organized non-profit group to raise funds and manage the garden.” He said ACC staff would assist Stott’s group as it moves forward. The group has been invited to present a progress report in the future. io THURSDAY, MAY 1 & MAY 8, 2014 |

A GROWING MOVEMENT “Should Anthem dedicate some land to a community garden?”

Cami O’Neal

At-home Mom, Anthem

“It’s an awesome idea. I’ve seen the ones in central Phoenix and it’s a neat way for the community to get to know each other. It’s great for kids, and a way for family to spend time together.”

Sarah Scott

Bill Bruner

Richard Werntz

“That’s a neat idea. If people take advantage of it, it’s a great idea.”

“There is a lot of space available and people like to grow vegetables. People like that experience. It’s a great idea.”

“Depends on how well it’s used. I’ve seen communities use them, and I have seen them go unused. Then the community or association has to take over.”

When Bees Move in By Linda & Dr. Dick Buscher ldbuscher@anthemnews.com

The bees entered through a hole about the size of a quarter.


B

ee swarms are a common sight during spring and hives, if near a home, usually require removal by a professional beekeeper. Last week, one Anthem family learned just how big a problem it is if a swarm finds its way into the walls of your home. It was their son who first noticed a few bees flying around the roofline of the family’s two-story home. After spotting an increasing number of bees in the days ahead, a closer look revealed a quarter-size hole just under a roof tile— the portal for the bees. With their roofline nearly 30-feet above ground, Chris and Krista Blundell wisely decided to call a bee removal expert. Nathan Heller of Phoenix Bee Removal donned a full bee suit, grabbed an extension ladder and got to work on the hive which he estimated to be about two-weeks old. But, the family’s bee problem didn’t end there. The large honeycomb the bees created also needed removal. According to Heller, the desert heat would melt the honeycomb and leave a mess of honey to run inside the exterior wall, and seep through the drywall, staining the walls and ceiling. The easiest way to get at the honeycomb, Heller determined, was to pull back the roof tile directly above the entry hole and cut through the roof. An estimated 10-pounds of honeycomb was removed, then the roof was repaired. The process took less than 90 minutes. Professional bee extermination can cost $100 or so, but when a structure has to be opened and repaired to remove a honeycomb, that figure can easily approach or exceed $1,000.

No Bees, Please…

• •

1 Check for holes in your exterior

stucco regularly. If you find a hole, get it patched before bees or other insects find it and use it as a portal to the interior of your home.

2 If you see bees entering and

exiting a hole in your wall, contact a professional bee removal service. Honeybees can be very aggressive and even life threatening.

3 React to the bees quickly. 

Don’t wait to see if they will go away on their own. The quicker bees are removed, the less expensive the process and the better the outcome.

hile I cannot claim even a fraction of the humility and insight that Pilgrim had, I can relate to the burden of having too much stuff. And by stuff―I mean junk. One of the biggest complaints I get from relocating real estate clients is that homes here don’t have attics or basements for storage. I say, “Free yourself! Leave all that crap in Kenosha with the cows and the curd. Make your move a spiritual quest for minimalism!” (I don’t really say that because they’d think I was on furlough from the wombat warehouse.) We all know we don’t need half the junk we have. When I rid myself of my surplus flab a few years back, I had hangers full of clothes that not only didn’t fit,

they reminded me of heftier days. Didn’t need ‘em, didn’t want ‘em, so I tossed them. How wonderfully freeing! Most of us watch in horror when we see extreme hoarders on TV, but I think we all have a tiny pack rat living inside us. Sorry, moms, you’re the worst. From baby clothes to children’s scrawlings that look absolutely nothing like a “moo-moo,” you just can’t part with some stuff. Free yourself! I’ve had the unfortunate experience of going through the possessions of relatives who have passed. Most ends up in the dumpster. The only thing remaining is the guilt of having to do the deed. My daughter Emma is quite the artist and I used to save every scrap she scribbled. Thanks to the magic of modern technology, I now scan


Free Yourself at the Community Garage Sale

everything onto the computer and back it up so it’s immortalized. We do the same thing with school work worthy of keeping. As for baby clothes, we kept one legal-size storage box of memories for each kid. We carefully sealed them and tossed them in the attic where they will likely sit quietly for 20 years.

So much stuff you accumulate, but know you’ll never really use again. (Trust me, your daughter won’t want that plastic high chair she had as a kid when she has children of her own.) Free yourself and help someone else who can really put it to good use. Be free, be free. And... peace, pilgrim!

Parkside residents will fling their garage doors open and haul unwanted stuff onto the driveway Saturday, May 17, for the first communitywide garage sale. The HOA arranged the event to help residents host a sale without the need to place signs at crosswalks—a CC&R violation. (A sign in your own yard is permitted.) Register by Friday, May 9, and Parkside HOA will put your house on the map of participating homes. Get the map at anthemnews.com/garagesale or pick it up the day of the event at the gazebo in Anthem’s community park.
