GATHERING TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY By Allison Barnett ONE OF THE VERY BEST QUALITIES THAT WE ENJOY AS PART OF THE NORTH 32ND COMMUNITY IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GATHER TOGETHER FOR SPECIAL EVENTS THAT ENABLE US TO CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER, ESPECIALLY EVENTS THAT ENCOURAGE US TO BIKE AND WALK TO THEM. Over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, we enjoyed another awesome biking event with the 6th Annual Community Bike Ride. This year we chose to move the party from the morning to the afternoon and finished up at 32 Shea where we enjoyed live music. The weather was perfect for an easy bike ride with friends and neighbors.

We were fortunate to partner with Sip & Shop AZ to gather a variety of local vendors to host booths with everything from tea to scrubs to jewelry and much more. We look forward to planning more events where our smaller, home-based businesses have the opportunity to get in front of the community with their goods and services. In February, Black Rock Bouldering Gym (BRBG) celebrated both their 3rd Annual Bouldering Comp as well as the opening of their new bouldering area! “Over 350 people attended, many from outside of Arizona, just to be a part of this historic day.” shared Iliana Dodge, owner of BRBG. “Our expansion project, comprised of more climbing terrain and fitness equipment, has effectively made us the largest bouldering gym in the state, and one of the largest training facilities in the Southwest.”

Way to go BRBG! We are so grateful that you chose North 32nd for your home and chose to continue to reinvest in your business to make it even better. Looking ahead this month, we are delighted that there will be fun events on back to back weekends. On Saturday, April 13, 32 Shea and Lovecraft are partnering together to support The Joy Bus with Drag Queen Bingo. The event will start at 32 Shea and then migrate up to Lovecraft for the main event. Biking from 32 Shea to Lovecraft is definitely encouraged. This event promises lots of laughs and good times! On Saturday, April 20, Greenway Village, located at the southwest corner of 32nd and Greenway, will be hosting a family-friendly egg hunt. There will be a bounce house, obstacle course, sports games, train, music and more. More details for all North 32nd events are available on the North 32nd event’s page on Facebook. facebook.com/north32nd/events Look ahead to even more goodness happening in North 32nd this year! Got a bright idea for an event? Feel free to send an email to events@north32nd.com. Allison Barnett is the managing partner of North 32nd, Inc. which is bringing revitalization of the community through strategic partnerships with the City of Phoenix as well as local businesses.

ENHANCED ARIZONA 511 TRAVELER INFORMATION SYSTEM LAUNCHED ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES EASY ACCESS TO ROAD CONDITIONS A MODERNIZED, MOBILEFRIENDLY ARIZONA 511 TRAVEL INFORMATION SYSTEM WEBSITE AND PHONE LINE ARE NOW AVAILABLE FROM THE ARIZONA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. The new system uses the latest technology to provide a customized experience with realtime updates from ADOT, the premier source of information on Arizona’s highway system. The new AZ511.gov website allows users to save their favorite routes and most used traffic cameras. Before leaving for a destination, drivers can log onto AZ511.gov to view incidents along their route, get estimated travel times to their destination and receive alternate route suggestions. Travelers may set up text or email alerts for their routes. Users can also call the 511 phone line to hear per-

sonalized updates. The 511 phone line is now easier to navigate and voice recognition has been upgraded. “Drivers have always turned to ADOT for the most accurate information on Arizona’s highways. The improved website and phone line make it even easier to access the information drivers need to make informed decisions when traveling throughout our state,” said ADOT Director John Halikowski. “As Governor Ducey has said, the principal job of state government is to protect and improve the quality of life for our citizens. Embracing new technology and offering better information to support motorist safety aligns with his charge to state agencies.” The new site is easy to navigate and includes information not previously available. Speed maps for all of Arizona’s roadways are displayed. Motorists can see the weather forecast, radar,

and National Weather Service watches and warnings. Border wait times have also been added. ADOT’s Twitter feed is visible on the home page, making it easy for travelers to get their questions answered by ADOT public information officers. The 511 phone system includes the ability to transfer directly to state and national parks, airports, and other transportation-related contacts. Additionally, the phone system will allow callers to transfer to the Arizona Adopt a Highway system to report those who litter. Soon to follow is an AZ511 mobile app for iOS and Android that will offer route planning, advanced monitoring of route conditions, and “drive mode” that will read off critical alerts to drivers. “The new Arizona Traveler Information System was born out of demand from Arizona motorists for more information – especially during critical events like snowstorms or highway closures. With a 24/7 operations

center, ADOT is the principal source of this information,” said Dr. Timothy Tait, ADOT’s director of communications. “While these new services have officially launched, we are still adding features, addressing issues and catching bugs. If you see something we can improve, be sure to look for ‘Contact Us’ under the ‘About’ link on the website.” ADOT set up its statewide 511 phone line in 2002 and is part of the nationally-designated three-digit phone number for traveler information. Over the past year, AZ511.gov had more than 65 million hits and the 511 phone line received more than 430,000 calls. The new AZ511 system is part of a range of tools used by ADOT to help drivers safely navigate the state. With the ADOT Alerts app – available at ADOTAlerts.com – more than 65,000 users are receiving alerts about crashes, serious weather or closures of highways to help them make informed driving decisions based on their location using geofencing technology.

AG BRNOVICH WARNS OF SPIKE IN RESALE SCAMS INVOLVING TIMESHARES IN MEXICO ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK BRNOVICH IS WARNING ARIZONANS ABOUT A RISE IN SOPHISTICATED SCAMS RELATED TO THE SALE OF TIMESHARE INTERESTS IN MEXICO. Scammers often posing as real estate brokers contact consumers and claim that a buyer would like to purchase or rent the consumer’s existing timeshare interest at a location in Mexico. The con artists tell consumers that a buyer wants to pay tens of thousands of dollars for their timeshare, but the consumer must pay money upfront for taxes, or put money into an escrow account. The consumer is directed to wire money to accounts in Mexico. The scammers will attempt to continue to extract money from the consumer until the consumer runs out of money or realizes they’ve been scammed. Although these scams are typically operated by individuals within the country of Mexico, scammers frequently conceal their identity by using the name of legitimate businesses in the United north32ndnews.com

States, often using the names of businesses registered with the Arizona Corporation Commission that have been inactive for years. Scammers will also create new, slick websites to appear legitimate, and populate internet sites with fake reviews. In some cases, con artists have even posed as part of Mexico’s government and say the Mexican government has set up a fund to assist victims of timeshare fraud in Mexico. “Our office has seen an increase in consumer complaints involving timeshare resale scams in Mexico,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “These scammers know some people are desperate to get out of their timeshares and prey upon that vulnerability to steal their money. Never wire or send money to people you don’t know or to a stranger in another country.” If you believe you are a victim of consumer fraud, you can file a complaint online with the Attorney General’s Office. You can also contact the Consumer Information and Complaints Unit in Phoenix at (602) 542-5763. NORTH 32ND NEWS • April 2019 • 5

YOU MADE YOUR VOICES HEARD, LOVECRAFT LISTENED LOVECRAFT, ALE HOUSE, BOTTLE SHOP AND SMOKED KITCHEN LOCATED JUST WEST OF CACTUS AND 32ND STREET HAS BEEN OPENED SINCE MID-DECEMBER. Expected to be mostly a counter service beer/wine bar with a limited menu of smoked meat and New Mexican cuisine, things have taken a turn, but it’s all for the good! “Immediately, we realized that our method of ordering at the counter was only causing frustration with our guests, so we did what was best for the business and changed to full table service”, stated owner Rebecca Golden. “Now you can just sit and relax…unless of course you want to play ping-pong, foosball, or giant Jenga in the back room.” So, what’s next for Lovecraft? “We are really surprised how much food we are selling. The smoked meats with New Mexican food are a huge hit,

so naturally we’re increasing the menu options to include a Smoked-n-Stuffed Green Chile Lucy Juicy burger, Green Chile Stew and some other authentic New Mexican food options. We’re also changing the plastic silverware into real metal silverware which I know will make many guests happy when their cutting into their enchiladas.

Our goal is to try to please as many “neighbeers” as possible, as we built this place for them. Mid-April we plan on opening for lunch on the weekends so guests can watch their favorite sports all day long with us. Tuesday’s we’ve added a social run club at 6:30 p.m. with our neighborhood friend and Personal Trainer Michelle Fencl from InsideOut Fitness. We are also teaming up with JoyBus and 32 Shea on April 13 for a Drag Queen Bingo Fundraiser at Lovecraft. We can’t imagine a better group of businesses to

be working with to strength and grow this community,” Golden said.

She is still adamant about the need to support local businesses. “Property values will increase if our neighborhoods are sought after. Now that we are starting to have great businesses here, go support them so more will come! Remember, where you spend your dollars does matter, a $2 coffee at 32 Shea makes a huge difference day-after-day!”

MUSICAL SERIES FOR ALZHEIMER’S PATIENTS & CARE PARTNERS MUSIC CAN AFFECT US IN POWERFUL WAYS, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO MOOD AND MEMORY. In support of this engaging connection, Banner Alzheimer’s Institute is proud to introduce Passport to Music in 2019 in partnership with the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). The new life enrichment program is designed for persons with mild to moderate memory loss and their care partners. The participants will experience a different region of the world each week through music being encouraged to explore memories and engage in interactive experiences in this unique environment. MIM fosters appreciation of the world’s diverse cultures by showing how we innovate, adapt, and learn from each other to create music—the language of the soul. “We’re excited to offer this series to people and families within our community, because it offers an opportunity to help them remain socially active and engaged which is key to maintaining quality of life,” said Lori Nisson, LCSW, Family and Community Services director. “Recent studies convey the health benefits of music intervention for these patients. People living with Alzheimer’s and other related dementias maintain musical aptitude and appreciation. While dementia affects mood, memory and language; music can function as a powerful tool in eliciting positive memories, emotions and interactions.” Local resident Diane Gerdts has seen the positive results music has had on her 85-year old husband Marlin, who has been 6 • April 2019 • NORTH 32ND NEWS

suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. He was first diagnosed about four years ago. Being a previous choir director, Diane knows the power and influence of music so was thrilled to participate during the pilot program. She said she couldn’t believe how much Marlin enjoyed himself. “My husband really blossomed during that event. That was a joy to me,” she said. “But it was also a great experience for me to meet other families and caregivers. We’re all going through the same journey in different ways, and that connection was incredible.” The Passport to Music series will be offered over the course of five weeks during 2019, and participants are encouraged to attend all sessions in their selected series. Each session will take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Musical Instrument Museum, main entrance lobby, 4725 E. Mayo Blvd, Phoenix. THE DATES FOR EACH SERIES ARE: Spring series – May 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 Summer series – Aug. 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 Fall series – Nov. 1, 8, 15, 22, Dec. 6 The cost to participate is $50 per pair and people can register by emailing BAIFCS@bannerhealth.com, or calling (602) 839-6850. This program was funded by generous support from Rosario Strano in honor of his wife Judy Loker to the Banner Alzheimer’s Foundation.

OCTANE RACEWAY ANNOUNCES NEW SISTER CONCEPT – MAVRIX NEW FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT CENTER TO OFFER BOWLING, LASER TAG, ARCADE GAMES, CHEF-DRIVEN MENU

S

cottsdale will soon welcome Mavrix, the Valley’s newest entertainment hub, offering 24 lanes of upscale bowling, 85 arcade games, state-of-the-art laser tag, billiards tables, dozens of 4K televisions, 1,500 square feet of meeting and event space, a 5,000 square-foot restaurant and bar featuring chef-prepared menu items and a large outdoor games patio. Mavrix will be the

latest addition to Octane Entertainment’s roster, the parent group known for Octane Raceway, Arizona’s premium kart racing facility, and Velocity VR, the state’s only free-roam virtual reality gaming arena. Mavrix will be located in the 50,000 square-foot retail space next door to Octane Raceway at the Pavilions at Talking Stick. Mavrix and Octane

Raceway will total a combined 110,000 square feet with shared access to the outdoor games patio, which will connect the two entertainment powerhouses. Guests will be able to seamlessly flow between the two venues and use shared arcade game cards at both Mavrix and Octane Raceway. “Talking Stick is booming with new development,” said Scott Sanders, CEO of Octane Raceway and owner of Octane Entertainment. “As a longstanding tenant, it’s exciting to contribute to the growth by delivering Mavrix, which will be the premier family entertainment center in the area. Octane Entertainment has had its sights on expansion, and when the space next door to Octane Raceway became available, it was too good to pass up.” The Mavrix name pays tribute to the original story of Sam Maverick, an “independently-minded” rancher who refused to follow convention and carved his own path into history. Mavrix conveys the spirit of bucking trends and is focused on creating rich experiences for its guests. The venue will infuse the maverick attitude with design elements of wood, brick and steel throughout, while maintaining an industrial look with clean, organic lines. Built for a memorable night out with friends to a day of family fun, Mavrix is sure to be an entertainment destination. Mavrix is expected to open in late 2019.

GETAWAY

Visiting

THE VERD E VALLEY

A

s Phoenicians, we love to travel north towards Flagstaff, especially during the heat of summer. But one of our favorite areas to visit on weekend and day trips is nestled between Phoenix and Flagstaff, in the rolling hills of the Verde Valley, just south of Sedona. The small, rural towns of Camp Verde, Cottonwood, Clarkdale, Cornville, Page Springs and Rimrock sit along the banks of the Verde River as charming little slices of Arizona history and western culture, just an hour or two from the Valley of the Sun. Here are a few of the spots we recommend you visit the next time you’re looking for a quick and unique getaway.

CAMP VERDE Camp Verde is the first stop on our list. The town prides itself on being “the center of it all,” due to its very central location in the state of Arizona. Camp Verde is full of historic sites, ranging from Fort Verde State Park, a well-preserved example of the Arizona Territory in the wild west era of the late 1800s, to the nearby Montezuma’s Castle National Monument, an 800 year old legacy of the Sinagua people who lived in ancient Arizona. More modern attractions to the Camp Verde area include Out of Africa Wildlife Park, Cliff Castle Casino, and the Verde Valley Archeology Center. The climate is perfect and there are plenty

By Jill Frier of outdoor activities in the area including beautiful places to camp, boat, fish, hike and explore along the shores of the Verde River. COTTONWOOD Cottonwood, known as the Heart of the Verde Valley Wine Trail, is a friendly haven for artists, foodies, wine and antique lovers. Once a small farming community, historic Old Town Cottonwood is now known for its Main Street, featuring cafes, restaurants, wine tasting rooms, antique stores, art galleries, hotels, shops and boutiques. The town is also home to Dead Horse Ranch State Park, a beautiful location for camping, hiking, boating and fishing near the Verde River Valley lagoons located in the area. CLARKDALE Clarkdale, Arizona, just a few minutes down the road from Cottonwood on the way to Jerome, was designed and built by Senator William Andrews Clark as a copper-smelting company town for the mine employees in Jerome. Although it has a population of less than 5000 people, Clarkdale is big a tourist attraction with daily train rides on the Verde Canyon Railroad bringing hundred of tourists to the area. It is also home to Tuzigoot National Monument, a fascinating look at ancient Sinagua pueblo ruins on a hilltop overlooking the Verde River. Visitors to Clarkdale can also

10 • April 2019 • NORTH 32ND NEWS

experience the Arizona Copper Art Museum, enjoy some of Verde Valley wine country’s finest at the Southwest Wine Center, or float down the Verde River with experienced local river outfitters through unspoiled riparian areas adjacent to the Audubon Important Birding Area in Tavasci Marsh. CORNVILLE AND PAGE SPRINGS The tiny towns of Cornville and Page Springs are a bit further off the beaten path, on the road to Sedona between Cottonwood and Rimrock. Both communities sit alongside Oak Creek, a tributary of the Verde River flowing through Sedona, and both are part of the Verde Valley Wine Trail, in the heart of Arizona wine country. A trip north on the winding Page Springs Road out of Cornville will take you along a trail full of local wineries and beautiful scenery on the way to Sedona. Cornville was once the home of long-time Arizona Senator John McCain. Page Springs hosts the largest state run fish hatchery, the Page Springs Fish Hatchery, which is operated by Arizona Game and Fish and stocks more than 50 percent of the state’s trout population. RIMROCK Rimrock is a small town north of Camp Verde along I-17, incorporating the Beaver Creek Communities of Lake Montezuma, Rimrock and McGuireville. Just down the Verde River from

Sedona, Rimrock is the town nearest to the Montezuma’s Well National Monument, the site of Sinagua ruins just downstream from the larger and more popular Montezuma’s Castle National Monument. The location of this monument is beautiful, lush and green, with a pueblo community built into a cliff overlooking a small, deep pond. Rimrock is also the gateway to the Beaver Creek Wilderness area, a perfect place to camp, hike and fish, just downriver from Sedona, and the fascinating V Bar V Ranch Heritage site, the largest and best-preserved petroglyph site in the Verde Valley. Most of the more than 1000 petroglyphs were created by the Sinagua people from about 900 AD until about 1350 AD. The Verde Canyon Railroad’s motto – “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey” – is one of my very favorites. It applies to all of the trips that take you to visit the tiny towns and desert hideaways throughout our great state. The places listed here are just a few of our favorite spots to visit in the Verde Valley area of Arizona, but there are many more worth seeing. Take your time and enjoy the slow pace of the many small towns and communities that line the Verde River on the way to Sedona and Flagstaff from Phoenix.

BUSINESS

THAT ‘AHA!’ MOMENT:

WAYS ENTREPRENEURS FIND INSPIRATION

E

ntrepreneurship starts with an idea. One of the challenges once the business gets off the ground, though, is coming up with more ideas that push the company forward. An idea often stems from inspiration and lacking that, some business owners say, can result in stagnation or a failed enterprise. “Without innovation and forward thinking, no business can succeed,” says Peter J. Strauss, author of The Business Owner’s Definitive Guide to Captive Insurance Companies. “But being a business owner is very demanding, and at some points, you’ll hit a wall where you can’t seem to come up with new ideas. To be a successful entrepreneur, you have to stay on the search for the next idea that will grow your business. And the truth is that most entrepreneurs are in need of some inspiration to ignite those ideas.” Strauss says there are several solid ways to cultivate inspiration: LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES “Ask yourself, ‘How could they get better at what they do?’” Strauss says. “How could they be happier and make our business better as a result of their passion and growth?” THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX “The day-to-day grind shouldn’t prevent the entrepreneur from daring to dream,” Strauss says. “Have fun with it; see five to 10 years ahead and where you envision the business being. Further, use that inspiration to fuel sound ideas for expanding the business sooner than you thought, and even adding new ventures.” MEET WITH PEERS Strauss says an entrepreneur can re-energize and be inspired by being around like-minded leaders and speakers, perhaps at an industry trade show, where participants are pumped up. “It can get you more excited about your business and remind you of why

12 • April 2019 • NORTH 32ND NEWS

you started it,” Strauss says. READ FREQUENTLY Strauss says leaders learn far more when they not only keep up with industry trends through reading, but by also reading about topics outside of their industry. “This can really inspire you,” he says, “because when you read outside your niche, you see creativity you’re not used to, and it inspires ideas.” UNPLUG AND TAKE WALKS In the often loud and chaotic world we live in, especially in the business sphere, entrepreneurs need quiet time to clear their minds and think freely. “We live with distractions,” Strauss says. “They get in the way if we let them – or if we don’t get away from them on occasion. Walking in nature is a great way to do it. Quiet time opens a door to inspiration and creativity.” TAILOR AN EXISTING IDEA TO YOUR BUSINESS “You don’t want to exactly copy people, but it’s foolish not to observe and learn from other businesses’ ideas,” Strauss says. “Then find innovative ways to apply them to your business.” “Inspiration rarely just shows up out of nowhere, uninvited,” Strauss says. “An entrepreneur needs to make time for it and go look for it, and there are a variety of ways to make that search energizing for you and your business.” north32ndnews.com


PETS

5 TIPS FOR HIKING WITH YOUR PET By Liz Illg, Puff &Fluff

As the weather warms up, it’s time to put on your walking shoes, get outdoors, and enjoy nature. If you have a pup, you will most likely want to take him or her along to enjoy some exercise as well! While it’s great to spend quality time with your pet outdoors, it’s equally important to learn some handy tips beforehand. Hiking with your pet can be a fun, exhilarating experience - but it can also be dangerous if you don’t follow proper protocol. BRING PLENTY OF WATER: Most of a dog’s body is comprised of water so it’s critical to bring enough water for you and your pup during a hike. One or two bottles may not be enough, and your dog may require even more water depending on his or her size. Come prepared, because you don’t want to worry mid-hike about running out of water. In addition to water, make sure you have snacks and treats for your pet as well. Essentially, whatever you think YOU would need for a hike, your pet will most likely need as well. ENSURE YOUR PET IS IN GOOD HEALTH: This one may seem obvious, but it’s important to keep in mind. Both young and old dogs cannot handle intense trails - don’t push them to exhaustion. If you notice your pet is lying down, panting excessively, or foaming at the mouth, it’s time to stop the hike and cool down. You can certainly train your dog to build up their prowess, but don’t expect them to keep up with the level of activity that you can. If you have any questions about your pet’s health, be sure to ask your vet.

north32ndnews.com

KEEP THE ENVIRONMENT CLEAN: Of course, we love spending time outdoors with our four-legged friends, but if we want to keep enjoying time outside, we have to treat our planet with love and care. This means picking up after your pet during your walks and hikes. You may think leaving some dog droppings in the middle of the woods won’t do much harm, but dog excrement actually contains harmful levels of bacteria, which can disrupt local wildlife, native habitats, and groundwater supplies. Pick up after Fido!

TAKE PLENTY OF BREAKS: Again, this goes along with the notion of making sure your pup is in good health and to bring along plenty of water staying hydrated. Don’t overwork your dog - even if you think ‘they can handle it’, hiking can put quite a strain on our furry friends. While exercise is great for their health, don’t overdo it. You don’t have to race to the peak enjoy the journey and quality time with your dog at their own pace. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR PUP POST-HIKE: While you should be checking for signs of exhaustion during the hike, keeping an eye on your pet posthike is also a good idea. Make sure they’re drinking, eating, and acting like their pawesome self. Also, a bath is a great idea post-hike. Make sure to check for ticks, scratches, or cuts - especially around their paws. It’s a good idea to put together a little firstaid kit to bring along on your hikes - just in case. Lastly, if the ground is too hot for you, it’s too hot for your pup.

EDUCATION

EARLY AUTISM INTERVENTION PROGRAM A SUCCESS

Y

oung Mind Community Center (YMCC) opened last September, with founders Amanda Wood and Sara Mertel driven to change what early autism intervention looked like in Phoenix. Their mission is to bring together clinical expertise in autism and excellence in early childhood education in order to deliver the best possible outcomes for young children with and without autism. After analyzing the first quarter progress reports, it is clear that this vision is becoming a reality. In the early autism intervention program at Young Mind Community Center, the average learner has met over 100 objectives in three months. Mandy Zerbib, a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst, said she has seen huge cognitive, communication, and social gains in a short period of time. “One of our three-year-old students wouldn’t interact with his peers at all.

He had a goal to simply react positively to being approached by other children. Now, he’s regularly playing with his friends for 10 minutes,” she said.

through because their work demonstrated that brain function among young children with autism can normalize with effective early intervention in profound, enduring ways.

YMCC, the intervention takes place in an inclusive preschool and focuses on the learning opportunities that exist in the social interactions young children have with other people.

In terms of language development, “He also went from communicating in two- or three-word phrases to 6-word sentences in that same time.”

Just this month, a major new study replicates research that demonstrated that children with autism as young as 18 months can vastly improve their language, cognition and social skills with early intervention utilizing ESDM. The new study found that children receiving intensive ESDM made significantly greater language gains than children in the community interventions, and this was true for both children with more severe delays and those with fewer.

“We use children’s interests and favorite activities to ensure that social interaction is interesting and fun,” Zerbib said.

Dr. Wood is not at all surprised by the first quarter scores. She believes it is a combination of their highly skilled team (which includes experts from early childhood education, psychology, behavior analysis, speech and language pathology, and occupational therapy) and their unique, focused approach. YMCC is the only early autism intervention program in Arizona that utilizes the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM). In 2012, TIME magazine named ESDM a top 10 medical break-

What distinguishes ESDM from the more traditional behavior interventions used with children with autism is that it combines developmental and behavioral approaches and is carried out within everyday routines. At

“The type of gains they found in this new study are what we see in our program. They’re what we should see in all high-quality early intervention programs. These findings should raise not only hope for families, but also expectations,” Mertel said.

HEALTH

ARE SEASONAL ALLERGIES

WEARING YOU DOWN? By Dr. Jenna Dye

The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and the pollen is circulating in the air. For some of us, this amazing time of year brings on watery eyes, sneezing, sniffles, coughing, wheezing and itching. These symptoms make it difficult to enjoy this beautiful weather. You don’t have to be miserable! There are some simple, natural ways to reduce your exposure and conquer Spring. REDUCE YOUR IN-HOME ALLERGENS: I recommend purchasing a good quality air purifier. You want to make sure it is a HEPA air purifier and it is running 24/7 during the allergy season (I run mine year-round). We are exposed to many allergens when we sleep, so having it in the bedroom is beneficial. Just make sure to change the filters and clean it regularly. If you have carpet in your home, vacuum at least twice per week to help decrease your exposure. If allergies are very severe and you have pets, you may want to consider an alternative flooring. Don’t forget to clean your windowsills, blinds and ceiling fans. They love to collect dust and we often forget about them. You can also eliminate dust mites by placing your pillows, comforters and blankets in the dryer on high heat for 10 minutes just once per week. ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET/ LIFESTYLE: Allergy symptoms all stem from underlying inflammation and overreaction in the body. Any additional factors that cause inflammation in the body worsen symptoms. This can include foods, chemicals and stress. By reducing your toxic load, your body can better handle the allergies. Choose foods that are nutrient dense such as green leafy vegetables and antioxidant rich fruits. Avoid dairy north32ndnews.com

products, as they can add to inflammation, produce more mucus and aggravate current allergy symptoms. Reduce your consumption of processed and high sugar foods. If you have food sensitivities, avoiding these during an allergy flare up can also be helpful.

Do your best to decrease your stress, make sure you are drinking ample water and get plenty of sleep. BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM: If you suffer from allergies, you may be more prone to illnesses such as sinus infections and other respiratory conditions. Make sure your immune system is in tip-top shape before the allergy season begins. Taking Vitamin C daily can boost your immunity and act as mild anti-histamine. Local raw honey can be used daily to help prime the system for the upcoming allergy season. A simple nasal rinse with saline, such as a neti pot, can help decrease and prevent that stubborn stuffy nose. Regular exercise can promote the anti-inflammatory pathway and boost immunity. SEE YOUR NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIAN: A Naturopathic Physician can offer a more individualized approach for you and your specific allergy symptoms. This is achieved by treating any underlying illnesses and decreasing inflammation. This support along with modifying your diet, reducing your exposure, and boosting your immune system can allow you to start enjoying this gorgeous time of year!

KIDS’ CORNER

WATCH YOUR KIDS AROUND WATER! WATER SAFETY IN THE VALLEY OF THE SUN By Jill “Mamabug” Frier

S

ummer is fast approaching and, unfortunately for Phoenix, so is accidental drowning season. City resources, state agencies and first responders come out in droves this time of year to caution parents to “Watch Your Kids Around Water.” Sadly, drowning is one of the leading causes of death for children under age four in Arizona. While most children drown in their own pools, other water sources can also be dangerous, including canals, buckets, toilets, bathtubs and ponds. Here are some safety tips from the experts and local resources for you to help you keep your kids safe around water. PREVENTING DROWNING The best way to prevent drowning is to watch kids when they are in or around water – without distractions. Put the cell phone down and be sure to keep children within reach of an adult. And never leave a child alone around a water source – it only takes two inches of water to drown. Other important ways to prevent drowning are to: • Use an approved barrier to separate the pool from the house. • Keep life-saving devices like hooks, poles, or flotation devices, near the pool and readily available. • Don’t allow kids to play in the pool area or store toys near the pool. • Keep large objects that kids can climb on, like tables, chairs, large toys or ladders, away from pool fences. • Always have a designated child watcher whenever kids are around the pool and take the kids with you when you leave the area. Don’t forget the non-pool areas, too. Be sure to empty all tubs, buckets, containers and kiddie pools immediately after you use them and store them upside down so they don’t collect water. Keep north32ndnews.com

toilet lids shut and doors to bathrooms and laundry rooms closed.

HELPING SOMEONE IN DANGER Accidents happen and sometimes kids find their way to the pool or water source, despite your best efforts. Do you know what to do in an emergency? An accident by definition is unexpected, which is why it is always a good idea to learn CPR and basic water rescue skills. You never know when you may need to step in and save someone’s life, child or adult. The main steps to remember if you find someone in trouble in a water emergency are: • Yell for help and pull the person out of the water. • Call 9-1-1 immediately and stay on the line with the operator for instructions. • Begin CPR, if you know it. • If you are not trained, follow the instructions from the 9-1-1 operator until help arrives.

Here are some specific tips to keep kids, and adults, safe around the pool this summer:

• Learn to swim – this is the best way to gain respect for the water and keep yourself afloat. • Never swim alone – use the buddy system, whether you are an adult or keeping an eye on kids. • Never swim under the influence of alcohol or medications – it’s hard to prevent drowning if you’re not awake, alert and attentive. • Never swim when you hear thunder or see lightning – electricity and water are a bad combination. • Never dive into an unfamiliar body of water – you never know what will be at the bottom. • Learn CPR – you may save someone’s life one day.

Water is a great way to cool off and have fun, but take steps to be safe and prevent accidents or drowning while you splash around. Be sure to check www.LadybugsBlog.com for many more ideas for having fun outside while keeping your kids safe this summer in Arizona!

For more information on Water Safety, call the City of Phoenix Fire Department Community Involvement Section 602-262-6910 or visit www.phoenix.gov/fire

Plan ahead and prepare yourself to know what to do in an emergency, because learning CPR and basic water rescue skills may help you save a life. POOL SAFETY TIPS One of the most important things you can do to keep your kids safe around water is to teach them to swim. Swimming lessons not only teach kids how to swim when they are in the water, they also teach kids to respect the potential dangers of the water and the rules for being safe around a pool. There are many different options for swimming lessons and a huge range of prices, times and locations. You can sign them up for private or group swimming lessons at one of the many swim schools in town, or go to a city pool or non-profit community center. Get your kids familiar with water, comfortable with the rules for a swimming pool, and respectful of the dangers that come with drowning. NORTH 32ND NEWS • April 2019 • 17

CURIOSITY OPENS MINDS

5 WAYS FOR YOUR CHILD TO EXPLORE, LEARN, AND GROW By Cory Dobbs, Ed.D., Paradise Valley Unified School District WORLD-CLASS THINKING The world is changing rapidly and more intensely than perhaps at any other time in recent history. The challenges of preparing the 21st century student to function in tomorrow’s workforce are plentiful. According to research from the World Economic Forum, 35 percent of the skills necessary to succeed in today’s workplace will be dramatically different five to 10 years from now. In a world saturated with information, it’s imperative that today’s schools meet the long-term needs of the learner. Today we know with full clarity that the workplace of tomorrow demands fluency in problem-solving and the ability to work interdependently. In other words, the basic skills needed for tomorrow’s knowledge-based workforce are wrapped up in techniques of thinking and communication. To be effective educators and parents, we must foster thinking in the child’s life. If we want to unlock the potential of a child,

it’s essential that we find ways to help them explore, learn, and grow. The world of the future insists students know how to develop and practice advanced thinking skills. The mission of PVSchools is to “cultivate, lead, and inspire world-class thinkers and expert communicators.” The accelerating world that’s coming into focus stresses nurturing and promoting multiple kinds of thinking. The following five types of thinking will enable today’s student to meet tomorrow’s challenges. INTEGRATED THINKING STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education has emerged as a new system of knowledge for the next generation of students. STEM education provides learners the opportunity to acquire tangible problemsolving skills by bringing together knowledge from the different core areas necessary for participating in a technology-based world. Interdisciplinary STEM programs provide valuable opportunities for students to explore, learn, and grow. Science Foundation Arizona defines STEM as “an integrated, interdisciplin-

ary approach to learning that provides hands-on and relevant learning experiences for students. STEM teaching and learning goes beyond the mere transfer of knowledge. It engages students and equips them with critical thinking, problem-solving, creative and collaborative skills, and ultimately establishes connections between the school, workplace, community and the global economy. PVSchools is committed to the exploration of science, technology, engineering and math in all content areas. CREATIVE THINKING Creativity is often thought of as something you either have or don’t have. We’ve all been told this is because some people are controlled by their logic-based left brain, while others march to the beat of the emotion sensing right hemisphere. The two hemispheres of the brain do function differently, but today we know we aren’t held captive by the way our brain works. The real story of creativity is that on the one hand, some people are born with creative gifts. On the other hand, we now know creativity can be taught and learned. PVSchools offers a variety of courses and programs that initiate and develop creative thinking. One such program, Suzuki Strings, shows how students can succeed by learning through creativity. The Suzuki Strings program embraces the educational philosophy of Shin’ichi Suzuki, a Japanese born educator. Suzuki believed that musical talent is not inborn, but rather all children could learn and master music. For Suzuki, the outcomes are clear: “Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens, noble human beings. If a child hears fine music from the day of his birth, and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline, and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart.”

CRITICAL /ANALYTICAL THINKING The world is changing. As the second decade of the 21st century approaches, we’ve discovered an educational certainty: thinking matters. No longer is it just enough to know the answers. Students must create meaningful questions; the kind that requires skillful thinking. They must be prepared to integrate critical and analytical thinking in everything they do. Analytical thinking is like good detective work—goal oriented and reasoned. While critical thinking is the careful use of facts to form a judgment. As a parent, you want to raise a wellrounded child who is academically challenged and thinks about issues and problems beyond the community in which he or she lives - a member of a global society. At PVSchools, we are helping students on this pathway with the K-12 International Baccalaureate (IB). IB focuses on each student as a whole person and addresses, not only the cognitive development but social, emotional, and physical well-being. The IB teaching methods are research-based and draw from the best educational practices from around the world. Additionally, IB teachers are required to participate in professional development opportunities to promote awareness of current educational practices and new thinking. INTERPERSONAL INTELLIGENCE The nature of work is radically changing. Much of how work gets done today is through teamwork. Team building, as any coach will acknowledge, is not a cookie-cutter process. Nor is it just a matter of a coach’s leadership style. What Google and great sports teams validate is the power of unified teams. Google, one of the most influential north32ndnews.com


companies in the world, recently concluded an extensive research project aimed at identifying how to build high-performing teams. You see, Google, like all other 21st century thinking organizations understands

technology infused world, the cultivation of interpersonal skills is vital. At PVSchools, extracurricular activities such as athletics, band, clubs, and student-government, as well as the classroom, help the young student develop the abilities to collaborate, communicate, and build effective relationships.

PRACTICAL THINKING “Houston we have a problem.” These are the ominous words astronaut Jim Lovell uttered to the NASA command center on April 14, 1970. Lovell and his crew knew something was wrong with their spacecraft, but were unaware of the extent of the problem. Faced with a puzzle of a problem, Apollo 13’s revised mission became one of survival. To bring the Apollo 13 spacecraft home safely, the crew and the command staff—more than 199,000 miles apart—had to apply practical thinking. Practical thinking is often referred to as “street smarts.” When you solve problems with the resources at hand, you are engaging in practical thinking. The astronauts aboard the spacecraft had to adapt to the situation, and deploy flexible thinking in the way they addressed problems as they emerged. They didn’t need to analyze data to draw conclusions. Getting the spacecraft back to Earth required using the practical intelligence of the astronauts.

At PVSchools, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department offers a wide range of programs which provide students the rigor and relevance needed to succeed in today’s global economy. Students are presented with opportunities to develop specialized skills while in high school and apply their academic knowledge in real world settings. Regardless of post-secondary plans, CTE provides all students with cutting edge training and opportunities in their chosen program of study. HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR CHILD’S UNIQUE SET OF THINKING ABILITIES Think about these questions: • What is your child’s unique set of thinking abilities? • Which environment brings them out? • How and where can you intentionally leverage them?

A place for young minds The Smart Choice. PVSchools provides a robust and engaging educational

experience, in a technology-rich environment, to ensure students are not only college and career ready, but prepared for life in the 21st century. To get your children started on their journey of excellence and to explore our Pre-K through 12th-Grade options, visit PVSchools.net

PLACEMAKING, ORGANIZATION & CREATING A HOMEBASE By Allison Barnett Associate Broker, My Home Group

I

n the past few years, I have been lucky enough to travel more for consulting or business opportunities as well as for pleasure. On all trips, I take about an hour to really settle into the space. This little bit of placemaking the space manifests itself into many more hours to enjoy time away, as well as making it much easier to pack up and go home.

The same practices at home can help make your time more enjoyable. An organized home creates efficiency. By now, you’ve probably all heard of the popular Netflix show “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo”. Marie is a Japanese organizing consultant who helps families declutter and tidy their homes. One of the reasons that the KonMari Method™ has become so popular is that it helps

individuals not only organize their home, but also keep just those items that “spark joy”. An untidy environment has been shown to negatively impact many aspects of our health including mood, stress levels and even our memory capabilities. Having less clutter allows us to truly appreciate the things and people that we have in our lives. There are individuals you can hire to help organize your life; however, it is really beneficial to try to incorporate these organizational strategies on your own as then the organization will be more intuitive to you. Rather than trying to tackle your whole house at once, start with one area and get it really organized before moving onto the next space. Taking the time to create a place you enjoy with organization can make it feel like you have a home base wherever you are at the time.

Call today!

Are you taking your anger out on the people you love, destroying relationships that would feed your soul simply because you’ve forgotten who you are? Do you struggle to get out of bed in the morning feeling that your losses have become overwhelming and there’s just no point? If your life today feels meaningless, or you’re not using your talents and gifts to make a difference in the world, or your heart is broken - you CAN change that. You are the master of your story. You came here on purpose to make money from your highest gifts, to rise triumphantly above every loss you’ve suffered, and to help raise the consciousness of the planet by helping others. Yes, I mean YOU. Nothing is stopping you but the fear. And reinvention is ALWAYS required. THESE STEPS WILL HELP YOU: 1. Meditate. Meditate every day to quiet your monkey mind (also known as your left brain) and tap into your higher self, expanded consciousness, divinity or whatever you’d like to call it. 2. Learn to access and live by your intuitive guidance. When making a decision, picture your life as if that decision were already in place and notice your gut reaction to the image. Are you excited and energized? Does it spark joy? That means yes! If you feel heavy,

4. Intend it. “I am using my gifts and talents with all of my passion to make the world a better place in my unique way.” Say those words whenever you doubt you’ll find your true work. When contemplating a new career, examine if the new work is in alignment with this statement. If so, go after it. 5. Dream big. Pretend you have $5 million in your bank account, but you still have to have a career you love. Without money concerns, which career would you choose? 6. Ask for dream guidance. Before falling asleep, ask to have a dream revealing your next career step. Keep a journal by your bed and write your dreams as soon as you wake-up. 7. Stop the pitiful thinking. Your fear voice tells you all the reasons why you can’t do what you want to do for a living. You might think that’s being “practical” or “realistic.” It’s not. It’s your pitiful self abusing your powerful self. Choose to be your brilliant, powerful, fearless, divine self. The world will align itself with your dreams.

CONNECTIONS IN HOME CARE: PROVIDING THE BEST CARE FOR YOUR FAMILY By Jennifer Marshall

“T

here’s no place like home!” Dorothy’s pivotal line from “The Wizard of Oz” expresses the sentiment of seniors who prefer living in the comfort of their home. That’s why Denise and Eric Kaye have made it their mission to fulfill these elders’ wishes through their local in-home healthcare agency Connections in Home Care. The Kayes are not only business partners who own and operate Connections in Home Care but also husband and wife. Eric founded the firm in November of 2014, Denise later joined him. “We help adults who are physically challenged; it’s mainly an older crowd,” said Eric. “Denise and I both have extensive healthcare experience. We’re very hands-on; we know all our clients and caregivers, and we serve the entire Valley.”

While Eric worked in the healthcare field, it was his grandmother who inspired him to venture into in-home healthcare. When her health declined, Eric and his mother became her inhome caregivers.

“His grandmother was from Greece,” said Denise, “and she hid for four years during the Holocaust. The village where they lived received information that the Nazis were coming, and about 12 people actually hid.”

“Our Holocaust survivors are the minority of our client base, but we’re very proud and honored to serve them,” said Denise.

Eric’s experience with his grandmother led to his connection with the local Jewish Family and Children Services (JFCS). They later recruited him to manage their in-home healthcare service.

Not only do they provide the best care, but they go above and beyond the scope of most in-home firms by doing more for their clients. “We’re not just providing a caregiver in our client’s home,” said Denise. “We’re overseeing our client’s wellness to hopefully keep them from going into the hospital. Our caregivers cook, which ensures they receive nutritious meals, and they take care of their personal hygiene care.”

“We’re essentially bringing assisted living to our client’s home,” said Eric, “and our ratio is 1:1. We do all levels of care, and we can accommodate anyone.” They employ only the most qualified of caregivers who are licensed CNAs or home health aides. Once a prospective employee passes a phone screening, they’re called in for an extensive interview. Thorough background checks and drug testing are also run on all potential candidates. “The reason we call ourselves Connections,” said Denise, “is because of the bonds that are formed between us, our clients and our caregivers.” Connections in Home Care is located at 3509 E. Shea Blvd Ste 108 in Phoenix and can be reached at 602-708-8626. For more information, visit connectionsinhomecare.com

KARSTEN’S ACE PRESENTS IRRIGATION DIY TIPS

A

s you know, most homes in the Desert Southwest have irrigation systems to keep all of your plants green and healthy throughout the year. Maintaining your irrigation system is not as difficult as you would think. All you need is a nice day, which is plentiful here in the Valley of the Sun. We thought we would outline three areas that arise the most that you can handle all by yourself. Below you will find three helpful hints to repairing your irrigation system.

SOLENOID REPLACEMENT If your irrigation system is turned on and a valve does not seem to be working, first locate the valve. It will either be in an inground valve box, or may be located above ground adjacent or in close proximity to the main water line into your home. Once you have located your valves and determined which valve is not working, make sure all wires are properly connected to the solenoid on top of the valve. If they are and the valve is still not working, then you will need to replace the solenoid. The solenoid is a small black cylinder about 2-3 inches in length and has two black wires attached to it. The solenoid’s main job is to operate the gate that is located inside the valve itself. The solenoid is screwed into the top of the valve and can be easily removed by detaching the black wires and unscrewing the cylinder out of the valve. Once this is completed, take your new solenoid and screw it back into the same location that you removed the bad one. Next, reattach the wires using waterproof wire nuts (note that the wires are color coded). These wire nuts are usually blue in color and have gel in them to protect the wires from getting wet. Once that is complete, wrap the wires and connectors with electrical tape to secure the joining of the wires and help keep the elements out. Supplies needed: First determine what brand the water valve is by looking on top of the valve. The most popular valves are Orbit, Toro or Rainbird. You will also need wirenuts and electrical tape: ITEM SKU # PRICE Orbit Solenoid 7216484 $11.99 Toro Solenoid 7297229 $11.99 Rainbird Solenoid 76952 $11.99 Wirenuts 3106259 $11.99 Electrical Tape 33180 $1.39

LEAKY IRRIGATION TUBE LINE If you have water seeping out of your gravel or dirt in your yard, you will need to find the source. First you will need to grab a spade shovel with a pointed edge to dig a hole where the water is leaking. Once you have reached its source you can determine how to repair. Be careful while doing this so you do not make your matters worse by creating more leaks by damaging your existing water line. In most cases your leak is being caused by a crack in your irrigation tubing, which will happen over time due to the movement in the earth or if your hose is above ground, our beautiful warm sunshine will cause it to become brittle. From this point you will need to dig a wide enough hole to be able to repair the tubing.

If the crack is small, you can repair it by cutting the tube with a tube cutter and inserting each end of the tube into a coupler, and hand tightening to get a good fit. That is all there is to it. If your hose is damaged more than a simple hole or crack, you will probably need to replace part of the tubing. Once you have determined the extent of tubing damage, you will need to replace that tubing the same way that is mentioned above, by doing it twice on both ends of your new piece of tubing. Before you cover up the tube with the dirt, test the seal by turning your water back on and check for any leaking water. If you are free of any leaks or drips, you are good to go. Supplies needed: ITEM SKU # PRICE Tubing Cutter 7188816 $19.99 Garden Trowel 7006174 $7.99 50’ ½” Tubing* 7035363 $9.59 Coupler 7107287 $2.99 We suggest buying a 50’ roll of tubing and keep for future use. ADDING MORE DRIPPERS ONTO YOUR EXISTING SYSTEM If you would like to add more plants to your yard near what is already being watered by your drip system, it is very easy to add drippers to your line to water your new plants. The process starts by locating your existing ½” water line. Access the tubing by digging a hole big enough so you can poke a hole in the existing ½” line. Next you will need a ¼”

barbed connector that you will insert into the hole you made (pointed end is inserted into the hole), then add a precut ¼” tubing on the other end that will be long enough to reach your new plant. That tubing can either be buried or run along the top of the ground. At this point you would add a 1-4 gph (gallon per hour) dripper based on the requirements of the type of plant you are planting. This simple process can be followed wherever you decide to add a new plant. If you would like your system to reach further into your yard or reach a plant that is further away, you can easily extend the length of your ½” tubing by adding a coupler and more tubing. Supplies needed: ITEM SKU # PRICE Shovel 70018 $17.99 Garden Trowel 7006174 $7.99 Gloves 7507287 $12.99 50 ft ½” Tubing 7035363 $9.59 ½” Coupler 7107287 $2.99 Tubing Cutter 7188816 $19.99 ¼” Barbed Connectors 10pk 7488550 $5.59 50 ft ¼” Irrigation Tubing* 7107303 $9.99 1 gal per hour drippers 10pk** 76895 $7.99 ¼” Hole Punch 7826233 $2.59 *Irrigation tubing comes in various lengths, colors and prices. **Irrigation line drippers come in various flow rates and packs. All of these supplies listed (and more) can be purchased at your local Karsten’s Ace Hardware. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us or come into the store - we would be more than happy to assist you. As you know “Ace is the Place with the Helpful Hardware Folks!”

FEATURED CHARITY OF THE MONTH: ESPERANÇA

lmost five decades ago, Dr. James Tupper set out for Antarctica aboard a U.S. Navy ship. While docked in South America, he witnessed some of the most disadvantaged families living in shacks built on islands of garbage, a water system completely contaminated by sewage, adults and children suffering from malnutrition, cleft lips and a mouthful of missing teeth.

After fulfilling his military duties, Tupper began his surgical residency at the University of Chicago Medical Center. He loved medicine, but the suffering he witnessed during his time abroad continued to invade his thoughts, so in 1963, he gave up a promising career as a surgeon for his priestly vocation.

includes those in the Phoenix area, with the organization’s domestic program.

He was ordained in 1969, vowing to care for the bodies and souls of the poorest among us. Returning to those Brazilian communities, determined to carry out this mission, he soon realized he lacked the necessary resources including medical supplies, laboratory facilities, surgical equipment and standard medication to truly make an impact.

“While conducting these global missions, we realized there were so many more people that could benefit from our services—many of which are located right in the Phoenix area,” said Jeri Royce, president and CEO of Esperança. “In 2000, we launched our domestic program in order to serve our community’s most underresourced children, adults and seniors.”

After expressing his concerns, family members and friends immediately rallied to help. In 1970, his brother, a lawyer in Phoenix, incorporated a nonprofit organization in order to support his efforts. Deemed “Esperança Inc.” from the Portuguese word for “hope,” Tupper was no longer in this fight alone.

By partnering with Title I schools, dental clinics and community centers, Esperança’s bilingual and bicultural health educators provide children with oral health literacy, referrals for free or low-cost dental care and daily health and wellness exercises. They stress the importance of nutrition and physical activity, providing information in a language and at a level the kids can understand.

Soon, the organization became known as a symbol of hope for those who have learned to live hopelessly. And the mission remains the same to this day—nearly 50 years later. Through fundraising, donations and active volunteers, Esperança now provides medical missions to such places as Peru, Mozambique, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua. In addition, volunteers and indigenous partners provide these communities with access to clean water, stable sources of food, disease prevention, health education and ecological home-building. “Although I am a general surgeon within the U.S., I feel truly fulfilled when I am volunteering my time overseas,” said Dr. Brandt Feuerstein, a volunteer surgeon for Esperança. “I am able to combine my studies and training as a surgeon to provide necessary medical care, in a culturally sensitive way, to international locations where they are needed most.” Esperança’s mission to improve health and provide hope for families in the poorest communities now

Known as Salud con Sabor Latino (Health with a Latin Flavor), adult classes are built around the idea that a family can be healthy, without losing touch with their culture. Participants engage in hands-on activities, such as cooking sessions and tours of local grocery stores. Further, the team offers parent-ambassador training, which teaches parents about public health and how to be a strong advocate for their children. “Whether local or global, we don’t enter communities with the intention to disrupt their way of life, rather we listen to their needs and give them the tools, training and support they need to succeed,” said Royce.

THE KID

A new perspective on the confrontation between Billy The Kid and Pat Garrett… with a twist. Vincent D’Onofrio shows potential in his debut, pulling stellar performances out of Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan and Chris Pratt. He also does well in terms of the setup and buildup of tension in the shootouts. The films downfall is in its pacing. It never slows down, jumping from one set piece to the next. Even when there is an emotional moment, the editing falls short in meshing the scenes together which causes a loss of impact that the scenes may have had. Luckily, its focus was in its narrative.

omeowners across the Valley are getting ready to list their homes this spring, which, according to a recent Zillow analysis, tends to be the best time of year to sell your house.

Spaces are filling!

Enroll Now!

Scottsdale-based HomeSmart found the best months in the Valley has varied between May and July during the last three years, which is a good indication that 2019 won’t be that different. Therefore, if you’re thinking of selling, now is the time to get ready! An essential first step in the home-selling and improvement process is to find an agent who can help you. It’s important to work with someone who understands your neighborhood, the value of your home and what you can do to stand out among the competition. Today, so many people’s first impression comes from the listing photos because buyers are browsing online before they look at a home in person. It’s so important to make sure your home is picture-perfect before listing! As a designer and Realtor, I work with my clients to enhance their homes with staging, DIY improvements and essential repairs before listing it for sale. With just a few simple changes, a property sells faster and for top dollar. We all know that decluttering, removing personal belongings and cleaning are important when selling a house, but in today’s market, it’s important for sellers to take things a step further. For about $500 or less, sellers can dramatically improve the appearance of their home to help attract buyers. THE POWER OF CURTAINS Curtains are low cost but make a huge visual impact because they add color and help frame a view. Hanging them 12 inches above the window and extending them to the floor can help make ceilings feel taller and the room seem bigger. My Designer Tip: Install the same solid color curtains on all the windows in the house to create a neutral appearance. My Favorite Place to Shop: IKEA Total Estimated Cost: $30-$150 EMBRACE THE TRENDS Changing light fixtures can make a home go from feeling dated to looking stylish. Foyer lights are essential because this is the first thing a buyer sees when they enter a home, but a dining room chandelier is where you’ll get your biggest impact because it’s typically one of the largest lights in the home. Make it count! My Designer Tip: Keep it consistent so that all fixnorth32ndnews.com

tures are of the same metal finish and a similar style to help buyers feel like the home has a unified design. My Favorite Place to Shop: Stardust Building Supplies. With two locations in the Valley, you can find amazing second-hand light fixtures and home items for great prices. Total Estimated Cost: $50-$200 STAGE TO SELL Is your dining table too big for the space? Go to your local thrift store to find one that fits the space better. People are not usually buying the furniture, but they are looking at it. Stage your home to emphasize its highlights. My Designer Tip: Things don’t need to match perfectly, but having the right scale is essential so buyers can imagine their own things in the home as well. My Favorite Place To Shop: Goodwill. Bigger furniture items are so affordable and you can fill in the missing pieces of your home without breaking the bank. Total Estimated Cost: $5-$100 Getting a home ready to sell can be a lot of work, but these simple changes are money and time well spent to help your home be the best it can be. If you start now, you can enjoy the DIY part as well. Spray paint is one of the easiest DIY tricks you can use to update a light fixture and completely transform it from blah to beautiful. Gel stain is another simple solution for wood pieces because it allows you to touch up scratches without completely resanding. This can easily turn a thrift-store find into a stylish piece of furniture. If it’s time to sell, it’s time to get started. James Judge is a designer and HomeSmart Realtor.
