CUTTING-EDGE WATER CONSERVATION TECHNOLOGY TO BE PILOTED IN PHOENIX THE CITY OF PHOENIX WATER SERVICES DEPARTMENT, RECENTLY ANNOUNCED IT IS THE RECIPIENT OF AN APPROXIMATELY $100,000 GRANT BY THE U.S. BUREAU OF RECLAMATION FOR AN INNOVATIVE WATER CONSERVATION PROGRAM. The grant will allow Phoenix Water, in partnership with Arizona State University (ASU), to pilot new technology to reduce lawn water usage between 40 and 45 percent, based on results experienced in California. “When you live in a desert city, it’s essential to explore innovative ways to conserve water for future generations,” said Phoenix Water Services Director Kathryn Sorensen. “With the successful completion of the pilot, there is potential to extend the technology to other areas within the City of Phoenix.” The pilot will be performed on 12 acres of existing soccer fields near ASU-West in Phoenix, owned by the City and ASU. The process involves injecting water-absorbing polymers (known as “hydrogel”) below the root zone of existing turf. The hydrogels can absorb up to 400 percent of their weight in water and release up to 96 percent of the water to

the turf, as needed. The injected hydrogels retain the ability of repeating water absorptions and release over a period of 5-7 years. About 60 percent of water consumption in the arid Southwest occurs during exterior landscaping, JoEllen Alberhasky, Program Manager for Sustainability Practices at Arizona State University said. “We are eager to see if this project produces similar or better conservation results in our climate and soil as compared to California.” She adds, “If so, it will become another valuable tool in addressing the ongoing drought in Arizona.” The existing soccer fields at ASU currently consume roughly 11 million gallons (34 acre-feet) of water per year at a cost of approximately $63,500. At a 40 percent reduction, 4.4 million gallons (13.5 acrefeet) of water and $25,400 thousand per year will be saved. Additionally, based on a conservative 5-year life cycle for the hydrogel, savings could equate to 22 million gallons (67.5 acre-feet) of water and $127,000 in savings over the life of the pilot. Application to these 12 acres will take approximately 6-8 weeks.

NORTH 32ND COSTUME PARTY RETURNS FOR FIFTH YEAR

By Molly Cerreta Smith

FINALLY IT’S OCTOBER AND TIME TO START CELEBRATING ALL THINGS FALL — NAMELY THAT RESIDENTS CAN GO OUTSIDE AND ENJOY THE ENVIABLE WEATHER! With October comes the fall holidays that make this season so

much fun — including Halloween. This year, the North 32nd Costume Party is celebrating its fifth year with the return to Crystal Cove Park, located at 2352 E. Christy Dr. in Phoenix. Part of the “Sheaborhood” for approximately six years, when Allison

Barnett moved to the valley she started this event as a way to celebrate Halloween, get involved in the community and bring neighborhoods and families together. “I hadn’t celebrated Halloween in a while and I just thought it would be fun,” she shares, noting that each year she focuses on how to make the event bigger and better.

At each event, businesses and nonprofits are invited to come out and offer fun activities for the kids such as games, bean bag toss, face painting, water games and of course there is the playground at the park which provides fun activity for the little ones as well. “We like to think of this event as a way for neighborhood companies to promote their businesses but also for families to come out and have a good time.” In addition, there is always a raffle to raise funds for a local non-profit. Vendors often have candy and trinkets to serve as an opportunity for kids to trick or treat too. While vendors pay a nominal fee 4 • October 2019 • NORTH 32ND NEWS

of $50 and non-profits just $25, the Annual North 32nd Costume Party is free for guests, and open to families around the valley — not just in the 32nd Street and Shea Boulevard area. “We are here to build community so we really want to keep community events free,” says Barnett. “And we’re always looking to attract people to our neighborhood by hosting events like this — so the more the merrier. We have so many parks and great families here — it’s a big spectrum of new families, grandparents and we welcome everyone to come enjoy the party.”

Be sure to come dressed your best, as the costume contest isn’t just for the kids! Whole families often get in the spirit with themed costumes and there is even a contest for the four-legged friends who dress their part! This year’s North 32nd Costume Party takes place Saturday, October 26 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more, visit https://www.facebook. com/events/2780079252010294/ north32ndnews.com

How can we expect imaginations to grow in an environment lacking exactly that? In an age where technology thrives, it is our goal to bring a sense of wonder and nature to the hearts and minds of our community.” Two of Andrea’s children are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder which is why she is dedicated to creating a space that all children can enjoy. Enchanted Chapters focuses on inclusion and

they want to encourage individuals with all abilities to enjoy their space. “Although Enchanted Chapters is a youth focused bookstore, we also have a variety of genres and titles for all ages including board books to young adult titles, and graphic novels to cookbooks. Aside from books, we also carry a selection of unique toys and gifts. Our staff is made up book lovers, writers, and teachers. We all have something special to offer and together we make a wonderful team. We want the community to see us as a meeting ground to get to know others within the community who share similar interests.

REDUCE YOUR STRESS Stress not only suppresses your immune system but can affect all aspects of your health and life. Look at ways to help you relax such as deep breathing, yoga, or taking a bath. GET 7-9 HOURS OF SLEEP EVERY NIGHT Sleep can be difficult for so many people, so find out what is keeping you from having a good night sleep and support your body with proper nutrients and supplements. To help aid in a restful night sleep, try Gaba or Melatonin.

OPTIMIZE YOUR VITAMIN D LEVELS Vitamin D helps to regulate our immune system and is a powerful tool in fighting off infections. Optimal levels of vitamin D should be between 50 -70ng/ml. It’s important to work with your doctor/ health practitioner to monitor these levels. Most people benefit from taking around 2,000- 5,000IU of a high-quality vitamin D supplement. It’s always a good idea to pair your vitamin D with a vitamin K supplement for safe, maximum absorption! GET PLENTY OF EXERCISE Exercise helps decrease stress, as well as boosts your immune system by increasing circulation, making it easier for your body to fight off illness. EFFECTIVE REMEDIES TO STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM Vitamin C, elderberry, vitamin D, probiotics, echinacea, oregano oil, zinc, ginger tea with raw honey or hot water with lemon, raw honey and cinnamon - yum! Many people get flu vaccinations. There are a few things to keep in mind if this is something that you are considering. It takes about two weeks before the flu shot is effective, and you can still get the flu even if you’ve been vaccinated. The CDC states that the vaccination is usually 50-70 percent effective, but some years that number has been as low as 9 percent. So, whether you get the flu shot or not, these are things you can do to help keep yourself healthy and prevent getting sick!

HEALTH

WHAT IS YOUR GUT TELLING YOU? By Dr. Jenna Dye, Naturopathic Physician

I

n Naturopathic Medicine, gut health is a primary focus, especially in my practice. Bowel movements are discussed at every visit. Are they daily and well-formed? Is there constipation or diarrhea? Is there cramping, bloating or gas? These are all common symptoms that patients experience with a digestive disruption. It is healthy to have at least one wellformed bowel movement each day and it is not normal to experience discomfort. Many patients have some sort of digestive symptom and the goal is to identify the root cause, regulate bowel movements, eliminate discomfort and support healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients. This is how we start: FOOD: Food is one of the most common causes of inflammation in the digestive system. We focus on the diet in detail to find any foods that could be aggravating digestion. Common foods that upset the digestion are wheat, diary and eggs as well as artificial sweeteners and other food additives. We can further investigate specific foods with a food sensitivity test, specifically IgG sensitivity testing. When we identify the food(s) that could be causing some upset, we can eliminate them for a certain period of time, heal the gut, and then try the foods again. Sometimes it just takes a little break from those aggravating foods to heal the gut. It’s like wearing a shoe that causes a blister; you have to stop wearing the shoe for a little while, let it heal and then try the shoe on again.

IMBALANCED GUT FLORA: This can be a major cause of digestive symptoms. Our gut requires a harmonious balance of good and bad bacteria. Stress, food sensitivities and other health conditions can all disrupt the flora and lead to a change in digestion. Prolonged use of antibiotics can also change the digestion and lead to yeast and/or bacterial overgrowth. It is important to support the gut during and after any antibiotic use to ensure that the good bacteria are replenished. We are able to identify any bacterial or yeast overgrowth with specific testing and then treat with proper probiotics and additional support that are tailored towards each patient. OTHER UNDERLYING CAUSES: Underlying illnesses and other conditions can also affect the digestive system. Thyroid disease can have a direct effect on the digestive system causing constipation or loose/ frequent stools. Autoimmune disease such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease can also cause a disruption in the digestion and lead to symptoms of gas, bloating and irregular bowel movements. Stress levels play a huge role in the digestive system, so lifestyle changes are essential as well. Certain medications can also be a culprit and are investigated if symptoms arise. Those with skin conditions such as eczema typically improve with digestive support as well. A complete history, physical and appropriate testing will allow us to piece together all aspects that may be affecting your digestive health. Treatment is always individualized and tailored to your specific needs. Dr. Jenna Dye is a licensed Naturopathic Physician. Her role is to support the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. Together with her patients, this is achieved by identifying and removing barriers that may be impacting health while creating a healing environment. For more information visit www.drjennadye. com.

SIMONMED IMAGING MAKING MAMMOGRAPHY EASIER

S

imonMed Imaging is helping women throughout Arizona receive the essential screenings to monitor and understand their health. SimonMed offers expert imaging in more than ten specialty screenings, of which mammography and breast ultrasound are an integral focus.

In Arizona, breast cancer is the leading form of cancer among women. In 2019, an estimated 2,800 women will be diagnosed, and more than 80 percent of the women who should have an annual mammography exam won’t because they are unable to find a mammography facility that is conveniently located. SimonMed’s partnership with MOM (Mobile Onsite Mammography) is increasing accessibility and affordability of women’s breast screenings. The MOM mobile mammography bus provides the same 3D mammography technology found in SimonMed clinics.

3D mammography is one of the most advanced and powerful breast screening technologies available. Like traditional mammography, 3D mammography uses x-rays to take images of the breast. Differing from traditional mammography, 3D mammography captures more images of the breast, from multiple angles, and is more effective for dense breasts.

Cancer is four to six times more likely in women with extremely dense breasts. More than 40 percent of women, age 40 and over, have dense breasts. Breast density can fall into one of four different categories: A: breasts are very fatty and have almost no dense tissue. B: breasts have scattered areas of density, but the majority of the tissue is non-dense. C: majority of the breast tissue is dense but there are some areas of non-dense, fatty tissue. D: nearly all of the breast tissue is dense.

Whole breast ultrasound is the ideal imaging choice for women with dense breast tissue. Breasts that are within the category C or category D are considered dense. SimonMed Breast Ultrasound finds seven more cancers than 2D Mammograms and three more cancers than 3D Mammograms.

a month. This familiarity will help determine whether changes in the breast tissue are normal or if it is something that requires professional examination.

When combined with 3D mammography, whole breast ultrasounds help radiologists provide more accurate and reliable diagnoses. And, because whole breast ultrasound uses sound waves to capture images of the breast, there is no risk for radiation exposure.

Women often put their health on the backburner, focusing on their career, responsibilities and loved ones more than themselves, but making time for your mammogram is not something to push down the to-do list. Instead, call 480-967-3767 to schedule your mammogram with MOM or visit https:// mobileonsitemammography.com/ upcoming-screening-locations to find upcoming screening locations near you.

Breast screening recommendations suggest receiving yearly mammograms as early as 40 years old. SimonMed suggests starting screening at age 35 to truly understand the lumps and bumps of your breasts. Women should become familiar with the shape and feeling of their breasts by doing self-exams in the shower once

About SimonMed: SimonMed Imaging is one of the largest outpatient medical imaging providers and largest physician radiology practices in the United States. We specialize in using the newest diagnostic imaging technologies and bringing them to the community in an affordable and accessible way.

ASK THE EXPERT

CLEAN COLONIC ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS Q. WHAT MADE YOU GET STARTED IN THE COLONIC BUSINESS? I had a lot of problems with my uterus. I had cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, and was diagnosed with adenomatosis. My doctor recommended that I get a hysterectomy because I had been suffering with these issues for more than 20 years. Instead, I opted to look for other solutions. A friend suggested that I get a colonic. Even though I didn’t think they were connected, I was desperate to find some relief. After seven sessions, the very next month I had no issues with my uterus - no cramps or pain. My stomach went down and when I went back to the doctor, I had no more cysts and the adenomatosis was gone. Today, I have no more problems with my cycle. Q. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF COLONICS? We have had several testimonies to the various benefits that clients experience. Two main ones are weight loss and relief of constipation. Most people do not realize you can hold 5-45 lbs. of fecal matter at one time in the colon. Once that is eliminated, clients experience a smaller waistline

and a flatter tummy. Many also find that they have more energy. Q. WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOR MY FIRST COLONIC? Don’t worry, it’s not as scary as you may think! While you fill out our intake form, we have you watch a short informational video. Even though we cover all the questions and go through the process with you in person, we find that our clients are more comfortable getting to see what will happen first by watching the video (this same video is available on our website for prospective clients to view). The procedure takes place in a private, clinical setting, affording both modesty and dignity, while allowing the practitioner ease-of-use. The LIBBE device that we use is comfortable and creates a simple release of the contents in the large intestine (colon) during a 40-45-minute session. A trained certified colon hydrotherapist is always nearby to monitor and provide assistance and comfort as needed. Q. IS IT CLEAN AND SANITARY? Yes! One of the reasons I named the business

Clean Colonic is because I wanted dispel misnomers and afford everyone to experience a clean and sanitary experience. An odor exhaust system for this colonic is attached to the device which ensures that the session room and entire center remain 100 percent odor free. Our clients describe their sessions as comfortable and clean.

Q. IF I CONSIDER MYSELF HEALTHY AND GO REGULARLY, DO I NEED A COLONIC? You may be surprised how much your colon holds onto. We have had clients who fasted for 20 days, came to get a colonic, and were amazed at how much they released. We suggest starting with two sessions, two days in a row for best results. A colonic can help with gas, bloating, and many gut related issues as well as constipation. Clean Colonic recently opened their second location at 4744 E. Thunderbird Rd. Ste 4 in Phoenix. Their therapists are Certified Colon Hydrotherapist and I-Act members, and are trained directly from the LIBBE device company. For more information, call 480-269-5575 or visit www.cleancolonic.com

ALL ARIZONA SCHOOL RETIREES ASSOCIATION: ADVOCATING FOR AND SUPPORTING THE STATE’S FORMER PUBLIC EDUCATION PERSONNEL By Molly Cerreta Smith

F

or those that haven’t heard of the All Arizona School Retirees Association (AASRA), it’s about time you did! The association, with units throughout the state, was initially formed in 1957. However, eight-year member Judy Weber, who also serves as the secretary of the AASRA’s scholarship foundation, says the group has evolved greatly since then.

“It started as just a teacher’s organization,” explains Weber of the Association’s early days. However, today, any public education staff that retires from an Arizona school district — from duty aids and kitchen staff to principals and superintendents — can become a part of the AASRA. “We want people to know that we help advocate for the entire public education staff, not just teachers,” says Weber.

The AARSA acts as a voice for all retired school district personnel, has a presence at the capitol level regarding legislative priorities, and serves to advocate for all Arizona school retirees on issues affecting retirement such as pensions, social security and health plan benefits; issues regarding senior health and well-being including community services and security from abuse and exploitation; and issues affecting public education, students and educators.

With approximately 1,200 current members throughout the 14 units, Weber says the organization could be so much bigger. Future retirees should know that they can join three years shy of their retirement and memberships fees are just $30 per year, which can even be paid through their pensions.

The Northwest Phoenix unit meets at the Deer Valley Airport restaurant on the second Thursday of every month from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. In addition to discussing issues they would like to focus on, the meetings often include inspirational, motivational, educational and historical speakers — or even speakers sharing unique points of interest on various topics for members to enjoy. Some recent speakers have included Lin Sue Cooney, an archivist from ASU West, a WWII Navajo Code Talker and more. “We are investing in the future of teachers and our public education personnel,” says Weber of the Association. “We want each of our members to have a voice and an opportunity to serve a leadership role within the Association.” In

addition to meeting once a month, the AASRA holds an annual two-day convention that includes speakers of influence, a raffle fundraiser, a banquet dinner and entertainment. “There is a lot of fellowship within the group so we have a lot of fun too,” Weber adds. For more information on the group’s benefits and how to become a member, visit www.aasra.org.

HOW TO NAIL NIGHTLY HOMEWORK

STUDIO

FOR A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE By PVSchools.net

F

or some students, getting started or finishing nightly homework assignments can be a struggle, but it doesn’t have to be. You can help turn homework into a positive experience for your child by establishing a few consistent guidelines that will ensure academic success and confidence. Here are a few tips to ensure homework is a positive experience for your child, as well as for you. TAKE A BREAK BEFORE YOU GET STARTED Rather than diving straight into homework after an exhausting day, give your child 30 minutes to unwind enjoy a healthy snack, and maybe stretch their legs after sitting all day. Especially helpful for younger children, the break allows them to avoid feeling attacked by homework routines the second they walk in the door. ESTABLISH CONSISTENT HOMEWORK/STUDY TIMES Set aside a consistent time each day to study and complete homework. If your child attends an after-school program, have him or her start homework there and check it at home. UTILIZE FREE RESOURCES Before you start paying for a tutor or go to a homework help center, know that there are plenty of free resources available such as Free Resources for Online Student Tutoring (FROST) offered by PVSchools. FROST is a student-driven, tutoring program that creates a casual, easy to use learning environment for students who need extra assistance with their academic subjects. PVSchools qualified high school students are available to provide tutoring in any subject matter for any student, kindergarten through 12th grade. REDUCE DISTRACTIONS Help reduce distractions by turning off the TV and music when your child north32ndnews.com

is doing homework. Also, consider taking mobile devices out of the room as text messages and email alerts can also be very distracting.

USE A TIMER By using a timer, you’ll keep your child on track with very little distraction. You can use a kitchen timer or the timer on your smartphone. If your child is easily distracted or gets frustrated, set the timer for 10 minutes to see how much work can be completed in that timeframe. If your child still has trouble with the assignment, provide assistance. PRAISE YOUR CHILD When graded homework, classwork and tests are returned to your child, review the graded material together. If your child struggled with a particular concept in the past, but received a good grade on this assignment, praise your child on how well he or she did.

HELP WITHOUT DOING THE HOMEWORK Offer assistance when your child needs it. If your child is having trouble with a math concept, find a YouTube video that your child can view. As a parent, you shouldn’t complete your child’s homework assignments. Plan ahead and make sure that your child has enough time to complete bigger projects. CHECK YOUR CHILD’S HOMEWORK Offer to review your child’s work for accuracy before it’s due. Go over any items that your child may have missed. Ask your child how he or she got that answer. It’s always a good idea to double-check work before it’s turned in. TALK TO YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER At the start of the school year, find out what the grading policy and class expectations are. If you have any questions about projects or assignments, ask your child’s teacher for clarification. NORTH 32ND NEWS • October 2019 • 15


KIDS’ CORNER

Pumpkin Patch Season Has Arrived! TIPS FOR PUMPKIN PATCHING IN YOUR FAVORITE ARIZONA PATCH OF PUMPKINS

T

emperatures are slowly starting to drop, leaves are beginning to change in Northern Arizona, and everywhere you look are pumpkin patches, fall festivals, haunted houses, costumes, and spooky decorations. Autumn is officially arriving in Arizona and one of our favorite ways to celebrate and enjoy the season is to visit one of our many local pumpkin patches. We’re sharing our inside knowledge and some of our best tips for visiting pumpkin patches here in the Sonoran Desert. TIP 1: REMEMBER YOU ARE IN THE DESERT Many people who currently live in the Valley of the Sun are transplants from other parts of the country, so our most important tip for anyone planning to make the trek to a local pumpkin patch is this: remember that you’re still the desert and that it’s still hot outside! Nope, you’re not in Kansas anymore – or Minnesota, or Wisconsin, or California, or Illinois, or Pennsylvania. Remember that even though fall is in the air and you’re in full pumpkin mode, Phoenix is still a desert. And it’s still hot. It is almost guaranteed to still be hot every afternoon until the week after Halloween, so plan accordingly. TIP 2: RESEARCH THE VENUE Take time to find the pumpkin patch that will work best for your family. Consider how long you are willing to sit in the car, what activities your kids will enjoy, and how much different pumpkin patches cost. All of them are fun, but there are ranges of activities and price points. If you are all about taking a day trip, plan on heading to a different part of the Valley or outside of Maricopa County. There are some great pumpkin patches in

16 • October 2019 • NORTH 32ND NEWS

By Jill “MamaBug” Frier the Tucson and Prescott areas, for example. If you are looking for just a few hours of fun, try something in town a little closer to home. Generally, pumpkin patches have a somewhat common range of activities for most ages, but some specialize in adult fun too. Watch for extras like haunted houses, music venues, or even beer gardens. In this day and age, most pumpkin patches have a good website or at least a Facebook page. Check out their information before you go to find distance and directions, hours, and prices, as well as to check out what kinds of activities are available on-site. A little planning ahead will make your trip much more enjoyable. TIP 3: GO EARLY Temperatures are usually quite a bit cooler in the morning, which makes it a great time to get outside and enjoy autumn weather. Typically, the crowds at a pumpkin patch are smaller right when they open, so the lines and wait times are shorter. It’s also easier to maneuver small kids around before lunchtime, when they get hungry. I recommend arriving as early as possible to make the trip more enjoyable for the whole family. TIP 4: TAKE WATER It’s the desert and you are outside in the sunshine. Even in cooler temperatures, you need to be sure to drink tons of water. Don’t make the mistake of leaving your beverages at home or trying to rely on food and drink stands at the pumpkin patch. Sometimes the costs are high, and sometimes they just don’t sell what you need. Be sure bring enough water for everyone in your group, to reduce the risk of running out while you’re there.

It’s always best to be prepared for the trip ahead of time, especially in the desert. TIP 5: DRESS APPROPRIATELY Whether the venue is a farm or a working ranch, the pumpkin patch will be sitting in an outdoor desert area that is not flip-flop friendly (think dirt, rocks, scrub grass, and cactus). Be sure to wear sturdy shoes, socks, a hat, sunscreen, and layer comfortable lightweight clothing. I recommend the type of clothes you would wear hiking as the environment is the same, but cowboy gear is great too. Nothing beats a good pair of cowboy boots at the ranch! TIP 6: BRING CASH In our experience, there is a really high likelihood of needing cash. Most pumpkin patches are small family farms or ranches, so credit card readers are not always readily available. That has changed gradually over the years, but it’s still best to bring some cash for your pumpkins and snacks, just to be on the safe side. Also, remember that most pumpkin patches are located on the outskirts of town and away from stores and strip malls, so an ATM machine may be a little tough to find. Visiting a pumpkin patch once fall arrives is a special treat, full of great memories and well worth the trip. There are some great pumpkin patches in all corners of the Sonoran Desert, and most of them bring a special Arizona flare to the mix that you just won’t find in other parts of the United States. With a little planning, you can make the most of your visit to a Sonoran Desert pumpkin patch this year. Be sure to check out ladybugsblog.com for our 2019 Arizona Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival list for ideas!

ESTATE PLANNING BASICS: THE REVOCABLE LIVING TRUST – PART TWO By Libby Banks

L

ast month I wrote about incapacity planning using the Revocable Living Trust. This time we’ll talk about the advantages such a trust gives your family at your death. A REVOCABLE LIVING TRUST AVOIDS PROBATE AND THE COST OF COURT INTERFERENCE AT DEATH A Trust that holds all of your assets will avoid the need for a probate and the public disclosure of your assets on your death. With a Trust, the person you appoint to wrap up your estate can do so quickly and in private. They can gather, sell, and distribute your assets to beneficiaries with no court involvement. A Will requires probate. The person you have designated to wrap up your estate must file an application with the court and be appointed by the court before they can do anything. Yes, even if your Will says who is to act, it doesn’t give them the authority to do so. Only the court can do that. The Will doesn’t automatically transfer property either. Instead, your personal representative must be court appointed, and only then can they sign a deed to transfer the property. A probate court proceeding can be both costly and public. Anyone can look at the documents filed with the court. A Trust provides both privacy and a

much smoother wrapping up of your estate. OTHER REASONS TO CONSIDER A TRUST Cost: When considering the choice between a Will based estate plan and a Trust based estate plan, consider the cost. My price for a basic probate is more than the average amount I charge for a Trust. Types of property: If you have real estate, especially more than one property, a trust makes it easier to wrap up the estate. Out of state property: If you have real property out of state, a trust is imperative. Otherwise, you may end up with two probates: one here, and one in another state. Family situation: Do your children get along? Do you have children from this marriage and from a previous marriage or relationship? These situations can be fraught with difficulties. With a Trust, we can provide for all the contingencies and be sure your money goes where you want it to when you are gone.

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF SUCCESS? 5 TIPS TO FIND IT

W

hile building and maintaining a thriving business may not be easy, experts in entrepreneurial endeavors say that building a personal brand first is key. In fact, some studies show that today’s consumers trust big brands less and prefer buying from a person they view as authentic and relatable. But before building a personal brand, it’s important for an entrepreneur to define what constitutes their own brand of success, says Ngan Nguyen, an intuitive strategist and author of Self-Defined Success: You Have Everything It Takes. “Fulfillment and extraordinary results only come when you strive to achieve your authentic success,” Nguyen says. “The key is figuring out what that is and navigating that path. The good news is that we each already have everything it takes to navigate that path. It is essential, because we each have

unique gifts, passions, and talents that can create amazing impact in the world and differentiate ourselves and our businesses.”

selves, there will always be a bit of reservation. And with that reservation comes lackluster results that are not a reflection of our true potential.”

Get unstuck by unleashing your inner self. “We feel stuck when there is a lack of clarity and the path in front of us is not aligned with our authenticity,” Nguyen says. “Stagnancy and negative happenings force us to look inside ourselves at who we really are and what we really want. Detail those things, and now you’ll have the blueprint to create change and growth. Getting clear on this enables us to lead ourselves and our business to forge ahead on a new path.”

Keep the vision in mind. Nguyen says much of our untapped potential lies in unused intelligence. “Leaders who leverage their vision can effectively navigate a path to success in a competitive marketplace,” Nguyen says. “Any vision that we can imagine, this infinite intelligence knows how to bring about. The question is how we go about influencing our subconscious in the right way so that it serves us. We do this by holding and keeping an image of a life we desire and feeding it through repetition long enough that our mind goes to work to aid us in creating it.”

Act on your new authenticity. “Our full potential comes out when we are fully committed to creating a result that fully expresses who we are and what we love,” Nguyen says. “Without that clarity and without acting upon our newly discovered authentic

Make your passion your fuel. “The power to create extraordinary results requires this critical ingredient,” Nguyen says. “Passion is contagious, ignites the heart, and motivates the

team. It energizes and sparks the pull forward through all barriers, uncertainty, and challenges.”

Have the will to make decisions that move toward your dream. Nguyen says the difference between those who make their dreams happen and those who don’t isn’t always a matter of intelligence but often is a matter of consistent will in decisionmaking. “You must have the intention to keep moving forward,” Nguyen says. “There is an energy shift that is experienced in the decision-making process, where a desire goes from wanting to being because you’ve concluded that the dream must come true no matter what.” “Most of us are not accessing our full potential,” Nguyen says. “We need more people to bring their passion, humanity, wisdom and mastery into the world, and achieving this is easier than you may think.”

omestic Violence has an incredible impact on an individual’s mental health. Whether experienced or just witnessed chronically, domestic violence activates a threat response system within, which has been proven to have a lifelong impact on mental, physical and emotional health. There is often a link between early childhood experiences and long-term mental health conditions. The signs range from depression and anxiety to chronic pain and obesity. Other signs may include dissociation, suicidal thoughts, difficulty developing meaningful relationships and/or just a feeling of numbness. It can be challenging to recognize behaviors, as they are an adaptation to environmental stressors. Many see the behaviors but are unable to see the underlying cause. For example, a child may be a class clown at school and get in trouble for being disruptive, but at home his humorous behavior distracts his parents from arguing. At home, it was effective but in other places, it became detrimental to his success. Are you in a Domestic Violence Situation? Are you hoping your abuser will change and you can help them? Do they promise to stop the abuse and have even volunteered to get counseling, but you are still worried about what will happen if you want to get out?

THERE ARE STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO PROTECT YOURSELF THAT CAN BE A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH: 1. Know your abuser’s red flags. Come up with several reasons you can use to leave the house if you sense trouble brewing. 2. Identify safe areas of the house. Know where to go if your abuser attacks or an argument starts. Avoid small, enclosed spaces without exits or rooms with weapons (such as the kitchen). If possible, head for a room with a phone and an outside door or window. 3. Come up with a code word. Establish a word, phrase, or signal you can use to let people know that you’re in danger and they should call the police. 4. Be ready to leave at a moment’s notice. Keep the car fueled up and facing the driveway exit. Hide a spare car key where you can grab it and go. Have emergency cash, clothing, phone numbers, and documents stashed in a safe place. 5. Practice escaping quickly and safely. Rehearse your escape plan so you know exactly what to do if under attack from your abuser. 6. Make and memorize a list of emergency contacts.

UNDERSTANDING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND TECHNOLOGY: Abusers often monitor their victim’s activities including their phone, computer, vehicle GPS and Internet use. When seeking help for domestic violence and abuse, it’s important to cover your tracks, especially when you’re using the home phone, a smartphone or a computer. If you discover any tracking or recording devices or apps, leave them be until you’re ready to leave. While it may be tempting to remove them or shut them off, you don’t want to alert your abuser.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU LEAVE: • Get an unlisted phone number. • Use a P.O. box rather than your home address. • Apply to Arizona’s address confidentiality program, a service that confidentially forwards your mail to your home. • Cancel your old bank accounts and credit cards, especially if you shared them with your abuser. When you open new accounts, be sure to use a different bank. • If you’re remaining in the same area, change up your routine. Take a new route to work, avoid places where your abuser might think to locate you, change any appointments he knows about, and find new places to shop and run errands. • Consider getting a restraining order or protective order. The scars of domestic violence and abuse run deep. The trauma can stay with you long after you’ve escaped the abusive situation. You may struggle with upsetting emotions, frightening memories, or a sense of constant danger that you just can’t kick. Or you may feel numb, disconnected, and unable to trust other people. But counseling, therapy, and support groups for domestic abuse survivors can help you process what you’ve been through and learn how to build new and healthy relationships. Treating survivors of domestic violence requires a trauma informed approach. Destiny Springs social workers/ therapists are trained in looking for the signs of trauma and in modalities that work to treat trauma survivors. They take a holistic approach to treatment that incorporate the mind and body. For more information visit www. destinysprings.com north32ndnews.com

VERONICA’S INITIATIVE:

USING TECHNOLOGY TO BRING HOPE AND HEALING IN THE WAKE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE By Veronica Winters-Everly

I

n Arizona, one in four women have experienced domestic violence in their lifetime. Every 44 minutes, one or more children in our state witness domestic violence. These statistics are startling – If you’re a woman, think about your three closest confidantes. Chances are, one of them has experienced physical, sexual, emotional, or financial abuse. Sadly, trauma is the common thread woven throughout many of these stories – including mine. A traumatic sexual assault at the age of 21 left me with damaged self-worth and a dangerous pattern of behaviors that led me to marry an abuser. After nine years, I eventually got out of that marriage with my two precious children and moved them away so we could start a new life. But eight out of 10 women survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse report significant short- or long-term impacts such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I thought I was handling my situation in the best way I

could by removing my children from it and protecting them. But what I wish I knew then was that that my trauma was being passed on to my daughter and son without any outward signs.

I learned that my brain could be rewired, form healthy neuropathways that took me from hanging-by-athread survival mode to thriving as an advocate for helping others in the depths of despair.

Nine years after my divorce, my beautiful 13-year-old daughter McKenna completed suicide in her bedroom. I was in the next room. I found her two hours too late.

I want every woman domestic violence and sexual assault survivor out there to have access to this program. That’s why I started Veronica’s Initiative to fund a research study with the hope of making this program readily available and affordable to any woman, anywhere. The one-year study of 100 women survivors is designed for publication, with oversight and results measured by PhD clinical research psychologists.

The trauma of that loss brought more pain that I thought was possible to bear in this lifetime. It led me to multiple suicide attempts of my own – all I wanted was to be with McKenna. Ten years later, my son, Noah, died of a drug overdose. I’ll never know whether it was accidental or not. That’s when I threw in the towel and made a sixth and final attempt at suicide. I ended up in the hospital, where I technically died twice before being revived. Today I am healthy. After decades of therapy, with temporary and modest results, I was introduced to a unique solution. It took six months to complete – and gave me back my life and my well-being.

The goal is to make this program widely accepted and integrated into the mental health community, plus become part of everyone’s healthcare and insurance benefit package. Please join me as a survivor partner in the fight for those without hope as we create new solutions for trauma recovery.

COVER STORY

LOVECRAFT ALE HOUSE • BOTTLE SHOP • SMOKE KITCHEN

Bringing New Mexico Style Flavors to the Neighborhood

L

oveCraft Ale House, Bottle Shop and Smoke Kitchen has evolved greatly in the short time since it opened its doors less than a year ago last December. What started as a beer bar with small bites served on paper plates has evolved into a full service sit down restaurant with community tables, real plate wear and utensils, an expanded menu, more than 130 craft beers (including 25 on tap) and wine and beers available to purchase and enjoy or take to go and lunch service on weekends beginning at 11:00 a.m., events, community collaborations and much more. As a neighbor in the North 32nd corridor who grew up in New Mexico and moved to Arizona for college, owner Rebecca Golden and her boyfriendslash-business partner Ryan Castillo, who grew up in the area where his parents still live, wanted to open a friendly neighborhood concept. And when it came time to create the menu and decide what type of food they were going to serve, Golden returned to her New Mexico roots. “Since moving here, the one thing I’ve always missed is the food,” says Golden, adding, “New Mexico style is all about slow 22 • October 2019 • NORTH 32ND NEWS

By Molly Cerreta Smith cooking. Smoking meat is the perfect combination with the homemade sauces that include really simple ingredients that simmer and come together to create deep, complex flavor profiles.” Golden, who is also the founder of the area’s popular 32 Shea restaurant, says LoveCraft sees a lot of neighborhood locals and repeat customers but also get crowds in from the Moon Valley and Sunnyslope areas. “This community helped build us,” she adds. “We rely on the support of the community to help us grow — we don’t have investors or a corporate backing. But that’s the cool part. We hope our customers see us as the result of the power of supporting local businesses.” Since opening, LoveCraft has also expanded its menu, but Golden says it’s still a fairly simple menu using the smoker — and time — to enhance those rich BBQ and New Mexico flavors. Some of the restaurant’s popular items include Green Chile Blanco Queso Dip, Green Chile Burrito smothered in queso, 3-Layer Stacked Enchiladas, Mini Street Tacos, Smoked Bacon-Wrapped

Jalapenos and, of course, slow-smoked BBQ options including brisket, pork, and chicken. Their sauces — including red, green and Las Cruses white — are all house made, and the menu is also very inclusive for those with dietary requests. The marinated Smokey Mushrooms are vegan, and many menu items are naturally gluten friendly including corn tortillas, beans, salads and more to give all diners options. To wash down a delicious plate of authentic New Mexico-style BBQ offerings, LoveCraft serves up a wide selection of libations. They pride themselves on carrying beverages that are hard to find and offer very competitive pricing on their carry out items. In addition to beer and wine, they have hard kombuchas, mead and ciders. As their menu and beverage selection has grown, so has the concept’s popularity — so LoveCraft is expanding! They are currently in the process of adding a second story rooftop patio terrace with beautiful mountain views. “Yes, this is a restaurant, but for me it’s also my artistic palette. From the north32ndnews.com


COVER STORY marketing to the food to the décor, it’s all part of the creative process for me,” says Golden of the restaurant’s design, ambiance and expansion. “We’re so excited for this next phase and to be the only place in the area to offer mountain and sunset views,” says Golden, who feels pride not only in her business — but also a responsibility to the community as a whole. “It’s my duty to help local businesses as much as I can because I know how hard it can be. We always try to collaborate on events with other neighborhood businesses. We all have the same business mentality of bringing people into this neighborhood.” So it makes sense to work together, right? With a background in graphic design and a talent for marketing, Golden also lends these skills to other businesses so they don’t have the burden of trying to recreate the wheel and figure those things out on their own. Some of their collaborative events with other local businesses include Drag Queen Bingo with The Joy Bus Diner, a non-profit that makes meals for homebound cancer patients and Ping Pong tournaments with local breweries and businesses. LoveCraft is even part of promoting a free neighborhood social run club led by local personal trainer Michelle Fencl. On Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., runners of all skill levels are invited to meet at LoveCraft, do a threemile loop (on foot, bike, skateboard or whatever!) and then return to LoveCraft for food and drinks! On Tuesdays, LoveCraft also hosts Madame Elizabeth who does Tarot Card readings for $5. The Pop-up Typewriter event takes place Wednesdays with local poet Fadi creating custom poetry for guests on beautiful paper. A donation of $20 is suggested and benefits The Joy Bus Diner. LoveCraft also offers 1/2 priced bottles of wine from 3:00 p.m. to close on Wednesdays, as well as tasting events featuring Young’s Market, which brings new and different wines for guests to try.

north32ndnews.com

“We like to have our customers try different things and we’ll make sure to buy a case of something special that they really like,” Golden says. “We are working towards putting ourselves on the map for our wines.” Crafty (but not cheesy, Golden points out) events are also offered at LoveCraft including live artists and craft nights such as Bob Ross Day and Beads and Meads; and throughout football season, LoveCraft is open early and offers beer and food specials for game day viewing. Other events include live music; Ice Cream Social Sundays with dessert trucks in the parking lot from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.; and progressive happy hour every day from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with specials on the food and drink menus changing throughout the course of the happy hour — so at 3:00 p.m. $3 specials are offered, at 4:00 p.m. $4 specials are offered and so on. Golden also adds that LoveCraft is not just for the 21plus crowd. “We’re really kid friendly and we have board games, ping pong and foosball,” she says. “People and kids can get up out of their seats and be social. It’s just a really comfortable setting for all ages.” One of the things that Golden notes as a local business owner is the opportunity her customers have to interact directly with her. “If things aren’t executed perfectly or if there is a problem, we welcome feedback. We encourage people to reach out and let us fix the problem,” she says. “And if you like what you see, please share it. This is all of our property value at stake — and it will go up if we continue to grow and support our local community.” LoveCraft, located at 3128 East Cactus Road, is open Tuesday through Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.; Friday 3:00 p.m. to midnight; Saturday 11:00 a.m. until midnight and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. For more, visit www.lovecraftphx.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/lovecraftphx.

HOW TO TAKE YOUR WORKOUTS OUTSIDE AND WHY YOU SHOULD By Erin Mahoney, VP of Education at International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA)

I

t’s that time! Arizona temperatures are finally cooling off a bit and that means we can begin to take our workouts outdoors and enjoy some fresh air. Exercising outside provides a host of benefits, from increased energy and mood to jump-starting your thought process and creativity. On days when your workouts have some flexibility, change things up and go outside. You can use the gym parking lot, a local park, or any other open space that makes sense. Enjoy the sunshine and change of pace. REASONS TO TAKE YOUR WORKOUT OUTSIDE THE GYM When the weather is nice, getting active outdoors is a mood booster. Here are some of the best reasons to train outside:

Improve Your Mental Health - Exercise is beneficial for mental health, but getting active outdoors is an even bigger boost. Being exposed to sunlight, for instance, improves mood and increases vitamin D levels. It’s not just the sun, though. Mixing it up will keep you motivated.

Avoid Burnout - It’s easy to get bored with workouts when you’re doing the same thing repeatedly. Another gym lifting session? Yet another 30 minutes on the elliptical? To reignite your interest in training, head outside. Even if you do the same basic workout, doing it in a different setting, with fresh air and sunshine, can reboot your enthusiasm and will even encourage you to work out a little longer. Allows for More Creativity - When working out in parks and other outdoor spaces you have different surfaces and structures to work with, and that forces you to get creative. You’ll start com-

ing up with new ideas. You may even be inspired to find new ideas for your professional career by getting those endorphins going.

More Space - If you usually train with a group, the gym can get a little cramped. You may be fighting other groups or individuals working out for space, especially during the summer months. Suggest to your trainer to take the session outside and mix it up for the entire group. FOOLPROOF WAYS TO TRANSITION EXERCISE OUTSIDE Sometimes you can simply take your indoor work out and do it outside. Other times there may be specific indoor equipment you need that will require some thoughtful adaptations for going outdoors. Or just wing it! It all depends on what you are in the mood for. Running - There are few workouts simpler than a run. For a cardio day, instead of hitting the treadmill or elliptical, get outside and hit the pavement or dirt trail. It could be just a warm-up jog to start a training session or a more involved cardio workout. For example, you can use running outside as a HIIT workout for big cardio gains and calorie blasting. Simple Outdoor HIIT Workouts You can also do a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout outdoors by incorporating moves like pushups, high knees, squats and squat jumps, lunges, burpees, bear crawls, planks, and others that don’t require gym any equipment. Find the Hills - Hill sprints are great for cardio workouts and leg strength. If you have a hill near the gym, or if you can meet at a park, invite your gym buddies to run up hills with you for a fun, challenging workout. Around the Phoenix area, there are many hiking trails to take advantage of, or you can always find an open field at a community college and/or a park with steps. Create Obstacle Courses - Turn an outdoor training session into a playground. Create an outdoor obstacle

course using playground structures, lawn games, tires, and whatever else you have. Just make it fun, so you will enjoy it while also improving agility, speed, and strength. Always Have a Backup - You can plan for the best, most fun outdoor workout, but you can’t control everything. The weather may not cooperate, or you may have a nagging pain and don’t want to risk doing something completely out of the box. Just be sure that you have a backup plan for the weather and listen to your body and modify your workout as needed. Stay Safe Outside - If you are headed outside for a workout, there are safety considerations and practical factors to keep in mind: • Watch the weather and avoid getting stuck out in a thunderstorm or intense heat. • If it’s hot outside, make sure you have water and an electrolyte option. • Bring a hat, sunscreen, and/or bug spray and apply regularly. • Make sure you’re out of the range of cars and traffic. • Wear protective clothing in bright colors so that you may be easily spotted. The simplicity of going outdoors to do a training session can have so many benefits. It can reinvigorate your passion for exercise. An hour outdoors will help with instant mood-boosts and help you break away from your regular, indoor gym routine and help unleash your training beast. north32ndnews.com

REAL ESTATE

TOP FIVE REMODELING PROJECTS THAT ADD VALUE TO YOUR HOME By Alan Anderson

A

s homes in Northeast Phoenix, Scottsdale and the surrounding Valley continue to age, many homeowners are looking at ways to stay updated. Increasing your home’s property value in 2020 effectively has a lot to do with understanding the values of the modern buyer. Square footage and location are key, but energy efficiency and high-end finishes in a low-maintenance home are especially important to the modern-day property buyer. Keep these top five home renovations in mind as we approach 2020 and when it comes time to sell, you’ll be able have your property hit the market with unmatched value.

BATHROOM REMODEL A brand new bathroom can help inspire offers on your house and updates to this space could help you earn more money when selling. Look for stand-alone tubs and high-end mirrors with integrated LED lighting to continue to stay popular in 2020. Other trends include rain shower heads, frameless shower enclosures and curbless showers. Homeowners can look to recoup around 66 percent.

WET BAR ADDITION A wet bar is exactly the kind of bell and whistle that many modern home buyers are looking for when they are shopping for a new home. Trending are wine coolers, ice makers, glass shelving that is recessed into the wall and quartz countertops. Remodels that yield a good return on investment make sense as homes in the Valley continue to age. The point of a well-chosen, well-thought-out remodel is not only the comfort and beauty it will add to your lifestyle but also the value it will add to your home.

KITCHEN RENOVATION Kitchens are usually the hub of the house and buyers are demanding upgraded finishes and designer touches. Look for two-tone kitchens (white with an accent of wood-stain color or accent painted finish) and more glamorous metal accents like copper, champagne bronze, glass and stone details. Depending on the scope of kitchen remodel, home owners can typically recoup costs as high as 73 percent.

For 2020 and the coming decade, the key is to make sure your remodel is not only beautiful, but functional for years to come.

About Alan Anderson-Arlington Custom Builders: Alan is co-owner of Arlington Custom Builders, along with his wife Brenda Southard. Together they have over 70 years of construction experience and have won numerous awards, including being recognized as one of the top remodeling contractors by Ranking AZ. The company specializes in custom home construction, kitchen and bathroom remodeling and Arizona room remodels.

ROOM ADDITION Many homeowners are adding room additions to their homes, as it provides extra space and square footage. Look for trends in converting garages into a playroom and then building another garage, creating spa-like bathrooms and building a separate “snore” room for partners who snore. Homeowners can expect to recoup costs around 60 percent. BACKYARD PATIO RENOVATION Whether it’s a luxurious swimming pool and cabana, an open-air kitchen and dining area or a cozy fire pit for roasting marshmallows, you’ve likely dreamed of having one, if not all, of these amenities at your home. In 2020, we will continue to see more and more homeowners looking to include outdoor living – or better yet, a design that allows for a flowing indoor-outdoor living space – in their home design. And experts say homeowners will recoup about 59 percent of the costs.

KARSTEN’S ACE HARDWARE: OVERSEEDING YOUR LAWN

I

t’s that time of year to start thinking about overseeding again! Overseeding is the process of seeding right over existing turf without tearing up any existing soil. It is ideal to start overseeding when the nightly temperature is consistently 70 degrees Fahrenheit. It is important to overseed to keep your summer weeds at a minimum and it gives grass a head start, allowing the roots to plant firmly before the winter cold hits.

There are only a few simple steps to overseeding your lawn in preparation for the colder season. First, you want to be sure to prep your lawn. Start by mowing the grass at the lowest setting and be sure to bag any clippings. Then you want to rake in order to remove any dead grass, loose soil and debris. A metal rake is best to ensure the soil is exposed to the seeds. Once your lawn is prepped, you want to be sure to fill your spreader with seed. This process is easiest if you have a rotary spreader. Once you have spread your seeds over your yard, it is time to water. You want to make sure to water daily or as needed for the first two weeks to ensure the soil stays soft. This is important for prime germina-

tion. Using a water timer or a sprinkler system can help ensure your lawn is watered frequently. Once the lawn starts to grow, you can begin to mow again. From this point on, it is easy lawn maintenance. Enjoy your beautiful winter lawn! Come into your local Ace Hardware for all your overseeding needs. HERE’S A SHOPPING LIST!

GETAWAY

Visiting

SE DONA

S

edona is a one of a kind place for tourists from all over the world, and a favorite weekend trip for both Arizonans and visitors from out of state. Named the “Most Beautiful Place in the U.S.” by USA Today in 2003, the stunning Red Rock views, tall pines, quaint shops, and beautiful creekside venues make it a charming place for a getaway any time of the year. We often get questions from Arizona newcomers about Sedona, since it is a favorite of so many people and one of the most frequently recommended locations for people to visit. Here are our favorite spots to see when we head north to Red Rock country. IN TOWN EXPERIENCE The town of Sedona is full of arts and culture, with shopping, restaurants and sightseeing tours. Whether you are spiritual, artistic, cultural, an outdoor enthusiast, or just plain laid back, Sedona has something for you. Our first stop is usually Uptown, right at the top of the “Y” – the intersection of Highway 89A and 179. It’s a great spot to find a public parking spot and get out to see the local sights. Walk up and down the block for a taste of the Old West town of Sedona’s origins, mixed with

By Jill “MamaBug” Frier new age hot spots, boutiques, souvenir shops, restaurants, and guided tours. A good place to start is the Visitor’s Center, where you can get great information to plan your visit around town. One of our favorite in town spots to visit is Tlaquepaque, an outdoor shopping and dining area just south of uptown, with old world charm and an upscale atmosphere. Nestled in the trees on the banks of Oak Creek, the site of Tlaquepaque was once the homestead of Sedona’s original postmaster, Theodore Schnebly. The story goes that Schnebly was tasked with naming the town and, rather than picking his own name, he chose the more beautiful name of his beloved wife, Sedona. OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE AND RED ROCK COUNTRY The best thing about Sedona has to be its location in Red Rock country. No matter where you go in Sedona, you have a stunning view of fantastic rock formations like nowhere else. Hiking and biking trails are abundant but be sure to pick up a trail guide or talk to a local park ranger or outfitter before you head out. The views and trails are gorgeous, but it is easy to get lost in the Coconino National Forest wilderness.

32 • October 2019 • NORTH 32ND NEWS

Some of the most popular outdoor spots include Slide Rock State Park and Oak Creek Canyon, but these are really just the tip of the iceberg. Awesome trails and places to explore are everywhere throughout the town and surrounding area. Our favorite place to hike is in Red Rock State Park, just off Highway 89A as you enter Sedona. It has a visitor’s center with great information about the park, trails, local geology, and wildlife, as well as fantastic hiking trails in the Red Rocks and along the creek. SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES One of the things Sedona is best known for is being a spiritual center. From its origins as a spiritual center for the early Sinagua people who lived there, to the more modern ideas of vortexes and new age spiritualism, Sedona is a popular place to seek spiritual healing of all types. Known for being the home of quite a few vortexes, or places on the earth with a special field of energy, Sedona attracts people from across the globe who want to visit these sites. The four most popular vortex locations are Airport Mesa, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, and Boynton Canyon.

It’s also home to churches and houses of worship for almost every denomination. The most famous of these churches is another of our favorite places to visit, the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Built on the top of a huge outcropping with a backdrop of Red Rock cliffs, this majestic church was originally commissioned by a local rancher and sculptor, Marguerite Brunswig Staude. The chapel, built on Coconino National Forest land with special permission, was completed in 1956 and remains one of Sedona’s most recognizable landmarks. Legend has it that it is also known for being the location of one of the strongest and most easily felt premier vortexes in Sedona. Sedona is a great place to visit all year round. It’s cooler than Phoenix in the summer and warmer than Flagstaff in the winter, with beautiful scenery and outdoor adventure in every season. It’s a great place for a day trip or weekend stay, with many unique places to see and experience.

SAFETY

TAKING MULTIPLE MEDICATIONS CAN INCREASE CRASH RISK FOR OLDER DRIVERS

N

early 50 percent of older adults report using seven or more medications while remaining active drivers, but don’t know some of the prescriptions they are taking may increase the risk of a collision due to impairing side effects.

avoided while operating a vehicle,” said Michelle Donati, spokesperson for AAA Arizona. “While taking medications can affect all of us, older drivers are more vulnerable and it is important for them to know the side effects associated with the medications they are taking.”

According to research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, nearly 20 percent of older drivers are using medications that the American Geriatrics Society says should be avoided because they have very limited therapeutic benefits, pose excess harm, or both and are referred to as potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs).

Currently, a record 42 million adults ages 65 and older are driving on America’s roads and this number is expected to increase substantially over the next decade, which would make them the largest driving population.

Most of these potentially inappropriate medications, such as benzodiazepines and first-generation antihistamines, are known to cause impairing effects such as blurred vision, confusion or incoordination, and can increase a driver’s risk for a crash by up to 300 percent. “Many older drivers are using medications that they don’t know should be

“There is a growing population of older drivers who use multiple medications and likely do not realize the impact these prescriptions may have on their driving,” said Dr. David Yang, executive director of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. “This new research shows that the more medications an older driver takes, the more likely they are to use an medication that can potentially cause driving impairment.”

Researchers found that the most commonly reported medications used by older drivers affect driving ability and increase crash risk. These medications include: • Cardiovascular prescriptions: Treating heart and blood vessel conditions • Central nervous system agents (CNS) prescriptions: Treating parts of the nervous system, such as the brain, and includes pain medications (nonnarcotics and narcotics), stimulants and anti-anxiety drugs

Previous research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that fewer than 18 percent of older drivers report receiving a warning about how their prescriptions impact their safety on the road. Additional data from the American Society of Health System Pharmacists shows that 34 percent of older adults are prescribed medications by more than one doctor, possibly bypassing opportunities to check how the new prescription may interact with other medications being used.

north32ndnews.com

AAA urges older adults and their families to be vigilant in understanding the types of medications prescribed to them and have a strong grasp on any potential impairing side effects before getting behind the wheel. Drivers should: • Come prepared: Write down any vitamins, supplements, prescriptions and over-the-counter medications you take, and bring that list with you to every medical appointment. • Ask questions: Share your medications list with your healthcare providers at each appointment, and ask about potential side effects or interactions that could affect your driving. • Discuss alternatives: Risks can often be reduced by taking alternative medications, changing the doses or the timing of the doses to avoid conflicts with safe driving.

Drivers seeking additional ways to stay mobile or looking to drive less often due to their medications can find resources for alternative transportation at SeniorDriving.AAA.com.

MOVIES MOVIE REVIEWS READY OR NOT

A new bride discovers that her groom’s family has a dark secret behind a family ritual. What I love about Ready or Not is that it gets tons of laughs, not just because of its massive amount of gore or swearing, but because of its staging and slapsticklike comedy. The chaotic and relentless feeling, combined with the editing, gives you the feeling that you’re right there along with Grace (Samara Weaving). Weaving proves to be a true badass and manages to be a standout in a cast full of incredible performances, including Adam Brody, Henry Czerny and Andie MacDowell. Ready or Not’s only real issue is that it isn’t a particularly scary film…a difficult thing to swallow in a movie meant to be in the horror genre. The great cast, clever screenplay and well played direction keeps you entertained, nonetheless.

THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON A man with down syndrome runs from his home with a drifter to become a wrestler.

Sweetness is how one can describe The Peanut Butter Falcon - like the lightest Terrence Malick film never made. Peanut Butter Falcon flows freely from scene to scene, showing our characters taking in their surroundings and simply loving life. Zack Gottasgen is absolutely incredible here. This may also be Shia LaBeouf’s best performance in years and confirms that he can be a superb actor. The southern-inspired score brings a feeling of authenticity to the film. This film is best described as beautiful.

AD ASTRA

An astronaut travels to the furthest areas of the solar system to find his father, who may be causing electrical signals that could wipe out life in the universe. Ad Astra will not be for everyone. It takes its time and is not anywhere near as action packed as the trailers suggest. The performances are quiet and at times may come off as bland. However, those quiet performances leant themselves to the beautiful subtlety of the film. It subverts a typical space journey movie, providing an intimate human drama about loyalty and our beliefs versus reality. Combine a gorgeous score by Max Richter and Lorne Balfe with Hoyte van Hoytema’s beautiful cinematography, and Ad Astra is a classic in the making.

IT: CHAPTER TWO

27 years after the first film, a now-grown Losers Club returns to Derry to put an end to the returned maniacal clown. Chapter Two shows that Andy Muschietti is a very exciting filmmaker when given free rein to do whatever he desires. The designs, locations and situations show him to be one of our more creative horror filmmakers of the day. He has a great eye for casting with the adult actors, particularly Bill Hader and James Ransone. “It’s” biggest problem is that, despite the time change and supposedly more mature themes, the movie feels no different than the previous film. We see the same humor and same style; the only real change is that now they’re adults. There seems to be a little less charm here than in the previous film. Chapter Two is visually a decent film, just a bit…. lacking in soul.

NO TRICKS, ONLY TREATS

FOR YOUR PETS THIS HALLOWEEN! By Liz Ilig Puff & Fluff Grooming & Pet Sitting

G

et out your pumpkins, costumes, and spookiest decorations because Halloween is right around the corner! An exciting time for those with a sweet tooth and a love for all things ghoulish, Halloween can be quite the treat! For those with four-legged critters running around, however, Halloween means taking special care to make sure there are no tricks and only treats! Remember, our pets aren’t just at risk of getting into that bowl of chocolate... there are many other ways your furry friends can get hurt or cause mischief on this holiday. Follow the tips below to prevent a scare this Halloween.

PREPARE PET-FRIENDLY HALLOWEEN TREATS While we all know that our pets can’t have chocolate, that doesn’t mean our best friends can’t indulge along with us this time of year. Here’s a sweet treat you can prepare for your pets– in fact, you can eat them too! Feel free to adjust the recipe based on the size of your pet or if you have multiple pets:

1/4 c coconut oil 1/2 c peanut butter 1 tbsp honey 1 1/4 c rolled oats 1/4 c cranberries Melt the coconut oil, peanut butter, and honey in a pot over low heat. Stir these ingredients together until they’re melted and then remove from heat. Next, mix in your rolled oats and cranberries. You can use fun cookie cutters to make Halloweenshaped treats, or simply form balls or circles on a piece of parchment paper. Simply pop these into the fridge until cool and then let your pets enjoy! DRESS UP YOUR PET IN SOMETHING COMFORTABLE We love fun pet costumes during Halloween! However, remember that not all pet costumes are comfortable or safe for your furry friends. Make sure that the costume doesn’t restrict your pet’s movement and/ or breathing. Your pet should still be able to see, hear, and bark/meow clearly. Some pets may find costumes stressful altogether. Still want them to join in the festivities? A cute bandana should do the trick! Have a safe Halloween with your pet!

F

amily owned and operated, Classic Crust Brick Oven Pizza has made a name for itself as a North 32nd community weekly stop. Located in the newly renovated center on the northeast corner of Cactus and Cave Creek, Classic Crust is convenient for those coming home in any direction. With expensive pizza joints popping up throughout the valley, Classic Crust Pizza easily holds its own alongside the swankiest of them. Whether you are looking to dine in or take your order on the go, you will be satisfied and eager to find your way back time after time.

menu. This means the kitchen can concentrate on doing things right and keeping it fresh.

What can you expect from Classic Crust’s menu? The owners, Alex and Angie Geiger were determined to offer the best brick-oven pizza and other Italian favorites without the high prices of other pizza joints in town. You know you are part of the family when you stop by, and Angie makes you feel as if you’re in her own kitchen. Order from their scratch menu and while you wait, Angie will chat you up about her husband Alex. The family has a pizzamaking heritage that goes back generations – Alex’s great-grandparents lived in Salerno, Italy and owned the neighborhood pizzeria. The Geiger’s are still using the same recipe that their family has for centuries and use all fresh local ingredients. You could say that good food is in their blood‌

Among the dozen signature pizzas, the Fat Tony is a standout: homemade marinara sauce, spicy crumbled sausage, roasted red peppers, basil and fresh ricotta. Other favorites include the Bacon Baller white pie, which features meatballs, bacon and ricotta, and the Angry Hawaiian with Canadian bacon, pineapple and jalapeĂąo. All the pizzas are delicious and come in several sizes (12-inch personal, 12-inch gluten-free, 14-inch, 16-inch, 18-inch, or by the slice for $2.95). They are now also serving local craft beer, to wash it all down.

Before opening the location, Geiger baked pies in a wood-fired oven mounted on the back of a 1957 Dodge pickup. They may have traded the truck for bricks and mortar but kept the auto theme. The walls of Classic Crust Pizza, a small space remodeled with ample group seating and a small bar, are dotted with artwork of cool old hotrods. Alex and his wife chose to stick with the basics: pizza, pasta, grinders (subs) and wings. Throw in a few salads and appetizers and you’ve read the whole north32ndnews.com

That being said, we know why we stopped in‌the pizzas! Pizzas are cooked to perfection in their New York Brick oven and emerge with a crispy yet chewy crust. If you’re glutenintolerant, gluten-free pizza and pasta is available. The toppings are abundant. Choose from pepperoni, sausage, meatball, salami, ham beef, chicken, spinach, olives, jalapeùos, pepperoncini and more.

To be fair we have to touch on the desserts. Aside from the familiar go-to treats of cheesecake and cannoli’s, you must try the zeppole (fried dough balls). You may notice something familiar about them; these are the same puffs of dough used in making Garlic Knots, however for this signature dessert, Classic Crust tosses theirs in powdered sugar and tops them with delectable organic agave nectar. Classic Crust Brick Oven Pizza is located at 2150 E Cactus Rd., Phoenix and open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. To reach them by phone call 602-996-1025.

CBD 101: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE TRYING By It’s All Goodz Smoke and Vape Shop

Y

ou’ve heard of it, but do you know what it is? CBD stands for cannabidiol which is just one of over one hundred cannabinoids. CBD is non-psychotropic (i.e. it does not get you “high” or contribute to the euphoric, mind altering effect associated with THC that is found in marijuana). There are two primary ‘types’ of CBD; isolate and full spectrum. The isolate is straight from the hemp plant. Isolate is the most common form, typically THC free and used to make tinctures, vapes, topicals and edibles. The full spectrum type will use all the plant has, will include THC and is typically cut with added oils so the THC content is below the legal limit, which is .03% While the FDA does not approve CBD, many people have noted that CBD has a positive impact on reducing chronic pain and inflammation, epilepsy and other types of seizures, sleep disorders, insomnia, anxiety, stress, depression and several other conditions.

There are four main methods of delivery for CBD. The first one is a tincture, which you would hold under your tongue for approximately 90 seconds. This allows the CBD to go directly into the blood stream. The second method of delivery is vaping, which goes into the blood stream, however it is via the lungs. Next is topical, which allows one to treat a localized area that delivers into the blood stream via skin absorption. The last method of delivery is ingestion, which delivers the CBD via the digestive track (ex: edibles).

It’s All Goodz Smoke and Vape shop, located at 12208 N. 32nd St. on the corner of 32nd Street and Cactus, now offers one of the largest varieties of quality tested CBD oils and products in Maricopa County, including CBD for pets. Some of the products carried by It’s All Goodz are: CBD lotions, CBD vape cartridges, CBD inhalers, CBD honey, CBD dog treats, CBD cough syrup and more. For more information or questions regarding what It’s All Goodz offers in regard to CBD, please call or visit them today.
