As a vocalist, you may have the dream to perform before a great big band, perhaps Count Basie. As a violinist, perhaps you dream of standing before the Phoenix Symphony. Before I leave the jazz scene I want to play drums with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, or maybe pianist Chick Corea. The chances are slim. However, local jazz pianist Bob Smolenski wanted to play with Valley great, bassist Mike King. He’ll get his wish when Mike King comes to Payson to play with Bob and I in a “recording performance” on Sunday, June 9 at the Payson Community Presbyterian Church, 800 W. Main St., starting at 2 p.m. We want the public to come and enjoy the experience. The coffee and apple juice will be ready, as will be the cookies. Call me for more information at (602) 619-3355. Hope to see you there!

a theatre and viewable in one’s cabin. Just about every night at 8 p.m., a live show was presented featuring headline acts, music galore, magic shows and stand-up comedy. For the more than two weeks aboard the Maasdam, we saw the best live shows I have ever witnessed on a cruise ship. As the Maasdam continued sailing north off the New England coast, we next stopped at Bar Harbor, Maine. Here, we chose a tour that included a ride through the Acadia National Park. It is one of the most beautiful drives in this part of the world, with dense forest and scenic meadows with interesting inns and homes along the way. The population in Bar Harbor is about 2,500 during the winter months and more than 40,000 during the summer. Many private boats are anchored in the bay, which is most colorful. We walked the downtown area stopping at some of the most interesting shops. We had lunch here consisting of lobster. Couldn’t leave here without enjoying the most famous item in Bar Harbor. Yummy! At Halifax, Nova Scotia (it means new Scotland) we toured the rather large city and enjoyed the many sights of the area including the famed Maritime Museum which houses a section devoted to the Titanic. Over 100 of the survivors were brought here after the sinking. Many bodies were also brought to Halifax and buried here. Nova Scotia is one of the 10 provinces that make up Canada. At 4:30 in the afternoon we set sail for Sydney where we also toured, and on to Charlotte Town on Prince Edward Island. It is

now day 10 of our adventure and we toured the vast surrounding area of green, rolling hills and open meadows and stopped at the estate which featured “Anne of Green Gables” characters in the book of the same name. It’s a rather large farm and we also walked through the rather small two-story home. The city of Charlottetown has some 35,000 people. Beautiful island! Gaspe was the most northern point of the 15-day cruise and located on the Gaspe Peninsula. It is French Canadian and the people speak mostly French. During a tour, we found mostly green, rolling hills with interesting farms occupying the land mass. The homes are smallish with distinctive colors of paint, much as you would find in Norway. As you drive the highway passing by small villages, you notice there are no fences. It gives a very open feeling. This postcard scenery sells Gaspe and the entire peninsula. Next up was Sept Illes, located on the St. Lawrence River. I had never heard of the city until I read the itinerary we were to take on Maasdam. I was surprised to learn that Sept Illes was the second largest Canadian seaport after Vancouver. Iron ore is the big commodity and exported from here to other parts of the world. The town has some 30,000 population and many work producing the iron ore. Native Canadians are also here, and some live in a reservation similar to our own here in the States. However, these reserves are found in sections of the cities. We took a rather lengthy tour of the outer area and enjoyed the sights. Saguenay is located on the Saguenay River off the St.

Lawrence River and is, in fact, a Fjord much as you would find in Norway. Beautiful! The town welcomed the Maasdam as it docked early in the morning. Many of the town’s people showed up dockside to welcome the first large ship of the summer season. We later attended a lavish theatre show depicting the history of the Saguenay area from the early times to present. The presentation used almost every theatrical effect possible. The stage was about 250 feet across and enjoyed a cast of some 150 players in costume. I counted six horses and other animals. All sorts of effects including laser were used. They outdid Radio City Music Hall’s lavish shows. We enjoyed two full days in Quebec City as the ship remained docked at the foot of old town. The town is loaded with French architecture with buildings going back 250 years with cobblestone streets. Here, we toured the city, both old and new sections, as well as nearby Island of Orleans where we enjoyed lunch at a country house. We also visited Montmorency Falls just outside Quebec City. We continued down the St. Lawrence River to end the cruise in Montreal. We had visited this large and interesting city in the past, so elected to fly home after disembarking. Holland America Line provided a coach to the airport. All in all, it was a fantastic cruise packed with interesting sights and friendly people. We want to thank the Holland America Line and officers and crew of the Maasdam for providing such a wonderful cruise experience.

JUNE 5, 2013 • RIM REVIEW | 5



The place known today as Jake’s Corner is 25 miles north of Roosevelt Lake and three miles east of State Route 87 on Route 188. The buildings stand on the spot that was once an important stop-over for those traveling the Tonto Basin. The story of Jake’s Corner began just after the Civil War when a young veteran of the Union Army came to Arizona Territory. His name was Heinrich Frederick Christian Hardt, and he had come from SchleswigSTAN BROWN Holstein, Germany, to the United States. Soon he accepted being called “Henry.” As did most of the young, male immigrants during those days, he joined the army in New Jersey and after the war set out to find his fortune in the West. Landing in the Phoenix area he met and courted Annie Eliza Harer, the daughter of David and Josephine Harer. The Harer family had moved to Arizona from California, where Annie had been born in 1856. Some family traditions indicate they had met at a Methodist camp meeting, sponsored by the Harers. Annie was 18 and Henry was 32 years old when they were married at New River in Maricopa County, on April 18, 1875. Apparently the Harers had taken up farming in that vicinity, but right after the wedding the Harer family moved to Tonto Basin. They established a homestead on Greenback Creek in the Sierra Anchas. The name of the creek and valley had been bestowed by Lt. William Hancock, who while scouting with his army detachment discovered greenbacks (U.S. currency) hidden by Apaches in that valley. Later as an influential leader and postmaster in the Phoenix area Hancock became good friends with David Harer and his family. He urged the Harers to settle the Greenback Valley in Tonto Basin, which they proceeded to do. Since Annie’s family was moving north, she and her new husband Henry Hardt moved to the protected vicinity of Ft. McDowell to farm. [1] The farming venture did not pan out as they had hoped, and in 1881 the Hardts moved to her parents’ ranch in Tonto Basin. This gave Henry time to scout for a homestead, which he staked out on a wash that would bear the family name, Hardt Creek. Their ranch headquarters on the dusty road from Globe to Payson soon became a famous stop for the horse-drawn stages that carried passengers and mail. The Hardts generous hospitality and Annie’s good cooking made the stop famous. She served meals that included quail and venison all the year round, and it was said that even the game warden so enjoyed the meals he asked no questions about Henry’s hunting habits. Annie also maintained a vegetable stand from which

travelers could help themselves and leave the money in a container. As the years went by, Henry Hardt suffered increasingly from arthritis, and his younger children could not remember seeing him walk. For years he had to be lifted on and off his horse. In 1898, during a winter storm, he developed pneumonia and on Christmas Eve, December 24th he died.[2] Annie moved to Gisela, and later became a cook at the Coppers Mine on the East Verde River. She remained in the Payson area for the next 20 years, and her children were with her until they married and went elsewhere. Sometime before 1930, Annie moved to Chandler, Arizona, to be with her daughter, Susan. [3] In her absence, Annie had rented the ranch to O. C. Felton and his family, and in 1924 she sold the place to them. During her years in Payson, Annie patented the homestead claims she and Henry had held for so long, and in 1924 an iron bridge over Rye Creek was built just down the road from the Hardt ranch to facilitate the mail delivery between Globe and Payson. Nine years later the Bush Highway would come by the ranch and over that iron bridge, making the ranch even more desirable as a stopover for travelers The new owner, Oscar C. Felton, was born in Tennessee in 1841 and grew to be an adventurer, eager to follow the gold rush in California and Alaska, and to participate in the popular Wild West shows. His life before owning the ranch is difficult to trace because he moved so often. After his marriage to Emilia (parentage unknown) in Texas, probably around 1868, the family locations are marked by the birthplaces of

their children. They were still in Texas when George A. Felton was born. Benjamin F. Felton was born in New Mexico in 1870, Florence was born in California in 1874, Oscar was born in Oregon in 1875, and Ruth was born in California in 1878. At the time of their marriage in Texas, Emilia brought two children into the family from a prior marriage. The two stepsons continued to be single and stay with the family for the next number of years. They were J. C. and D. M. Gilleland. In 1878, the year Ruth was born, the family moved to the Tonto Basin, and apparently took over the running of the Hardt Ranch and stage stop. In his 1922 report on the grasslands for the Forest Service — “Grazing on the Tonto” — Ranger Fred Croxen wrote, “O. C. Felton moved into lower Rye in 1878. The Feltons had headquarters at what is now known as Jake’s Corner.”[4] The commemorative plaque erected at Jake’s Corner by a group called “Lost Dutchman” states, “In 1924 the first store was built by George Felton. With the advent of motorized travel and completion of Roosevelt Dam, it became a popular stop to fix oil pans, tires and fuel tanks. It was a small price to pay for the arduous journey along the Apache Trail. George and his wife Virginia operated the store for sixteen years. Virginia was the main caretaker, as George had an adventurous cowboy soul, and performed in Wild West shows worldwide, with his friend Charlie Meadows.” George apparently took after his father. By 1940, George was 82 years old and declining health. This made it timely to sell the store, and nearby rancher Polly Brown

bought it. She operated the place, still known as “Felton’s Store” for six years, and in 1946 she sold it to Jake and Nina Stephenson. At this juncture, the place became known as Jake’s Corner Bar. Jake operated it until his death in 1971, and it was purchased by Dan and Lou Smyers. Barbecue facilities were added to the picnic spots and Jake’s Corner was all set for its moment of fame. In 2008, a low-budget movie was filmed there, and the title of the movie was “Jake’s Corner.” NOTES: [1] In 1877 their first child, Susan Jane, was born. Seven more would follow: David, 1881; Henry Frederick, 1883; Robert, 1886 who died at the age of 3; Charlotte Josephine, 1888; Sarah Reed, 1891; Joseph Howard, 1894; Leonard Byford, 1897. Some records include Joe Hardt, born in 1884. [2] Henry Hardt was buried in Tonto Basin. [3] Susan had married Albert M. Despain when she was 19, Dec. 27, 1896. Annie Hardt died March 2, 1939 at the age of 81, and was buried in Chandler. [4] A mystery surrounds the dates, however. The 1880 Federal Census lists the Felton family as registering at Marsh Valley in Yavapai County, Arizona. While no such place shows up on today’s maps of Arizona, hiking guides indicate a Marsh Valley trail in the Superstition wilderness, off the Apache Trail (State Route 88). indicates a Marsh Valley on the northern railroad line, adjacent to historic Route 66, and west of Seligman. This could mean a railroad watering stop. We shall leave it to further research for the solution.




GORGEOUS GARDENS 2013 Garden Walk shows Rim Country’s green side Rim hillsides, big yards and small, as well as the large Payson Community Garden are features of the June 8 Garden Walk. The Rim Area Gardeners will present their 2013 Garden Walk from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, June 8. Participants are invited to visit some of Payson’s outstanding gardens.

JUNE 5, 2013 • RIM REVIEW | 7

The 2013 Garden Walk will showcase the work of Rim residents with the greenest of green thumbs. Each site on the tour displays the homeowner’s gift for working with nature. Included on the tour will be the Payson Community Garden on Tyler Parkway. Photos by Andy Towle

Garden Walk is Saturday FROM PAGE 6

has many exotic and delightful plantings and water features. A hammock suggests dreamy afternoons in a shady, relaxed setting. There is room to stroll and discover hidden nooks and unique art. The sunken front garden has a variety of annuals and perennials. 510 N. Maranatha Road, Payson — owner and designer Jill Ridley will host artist Georgia Thorne and her fiber works at this family hideaway, reached by a curved driveway. This sprawling, six-acre ranch has animals, barns, corrals and outdoor entertainment space. Ridley enhances the natural setting of the home with potted plants and cozy seating in a romantic, curtained outdoor room. 2017 N. Verde Circle, Payson — owner Gayle Goodwin will host musician Linda Abbot on the viola in this well-designed small yard with a shaded back patio that is perfect for Arizona summers. Native

plants and trees combine with landscaping for a pleasing impression. Bird feeders attract colorful visitors. A 350-gallon cistern ensures vigorous blooms and owner-crafted stained glass window panels decorate the entry. 1618C N. McLane Road, Payson — Martha and John Teubner have combined her artist’s eye and his strong back to build a haven showcasing nature’s bounty in a charming hillside area with rock gardens, water features, arbors, walkways, shaded patios and a large vegetable garden. Payson Community Garden on Tyler Parkway — this young site (opened in 2012) has 165 plots rented to the public for seasonal gardening and each plot is an individual garden with flowers as well as vegetables. There is even a hydroponic garden on site. The participants in the garden share their excess produce with local food banks, helping their neighbors with limited resources eat healthy.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your creative side is enhanced by indulging yourself in as much artistic inspiration (music, art, dance, etc.) as you can fit into your schedule. Take someone special with you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Take a little restorative time out of your busy life. Go somewhere quiet this weekend. Or just close the door, turn on the answering machine and pretend you’re away. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your advice might be much in demand by family and friends this week. But reserve time for yourself to investigate a project that could have some unexpected potential. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work-related issues demand your attention in the early part of the week. Family matters dominate Thursday and Friday. But the weekend is yours to spend as you please. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Try to keep your temper in check as you deal with someone who seems to enjoy showing disrespect. Losing your Leonine cool might be just what the goader hopes to see. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A heated confrontation needs some cool-off time before it boils over. Better to step away than to try to win an argument where emotions overrule the facts. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Someone very special in your life finally sends that reassuring message you’ve been hoping for. You can now devote more time to the tasks you had put aside. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Job pressures begin to ease by the week’s end, leaving you time to relax and restore your energy levels before you face next week’s emerging challenges. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your spiritual strength helps calm a friend who might be facing an unsettling change in his or her life. An offer to help comes from a surprising source. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) By midweek you could learn some surprising facts about an associate that might cause you to reconsider a long-held view about someone in your past. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) One of those rare-for-you darker moods sets in in the early part of the week. But by Thursday, the clouds lift and you’re back doing nice things for people in need. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Use that sharp Piscean perceptiveness to reel in more information about a promising offer so that you have the facts to back up whatever decision you make. BORN THIS WEEK: Although you prefer the status quo, you easily can adapt to change when it’s called for. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Pseudogout is gout’s relative BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have pseudogout. It’s hard for me to explain to people, so I either tell them I have gout or I don’t tell them anything. Will you do me a favor and explain it in the paper? I’ll cut it out, carry it with me and give it to people who ask what I have. Thanks. — D.K. ANSWER: “Pseudo” is the Greek word for “false.” Pseudogout is false gout, an illness that looks a lot like gout but really isn’t related to it. With gout, blood uric-acid level rises. Crystals of uric acid deposit in joints and give rise to gout pain. With pseudogout, the crystals that invade joints and the tissues around joints are calcium pyrophosphate. What causes the rise of these crystals isn’t known. It’s not diet. The first attack of gout usually involves the base of the big toe. With pseudogout, it’s the knee. The pain of pseudogout is not false; it’s quite real. Both crystals target other joints as time passes. Even though these two are different processes, treatment is similar. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used for acute attacks of both, medicines like Indocin and Motrin. Colchicine, another gout medicine, is also used for an acute, painful attack of pseudogout. As in gout, cortisone injection of an inflamed joint reliably suppresses joint pain. The standard treatment of inflamed joints — ice packs and immobilization — are part of treatment for both illnesses. Unlike gout, pseudogout doesn’t have as many medicines for the prevention of attacks. Colchicine can be taken on a daily basis to ward off attacks. However, should this illness develop into a chronic illness, medicines like methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine are often prescribed. The booklet on gout and pseudogout provides answers to other questions on these illnesses. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 302W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: For about two months, my husband had a red bump on the back of his hand, and he picked at it all the time. It became a sore. I pestered him to see somebody about it, and he finally did. It turned out to be Bowen’s disease. My husband now believes he is at death’s door. Please explain what this is and how it’s treated. — G.R. ANSWER: Bowen’s disease is squamous cell skin cancer in situ. Squamous cells are the usual outer skin cells. “In situ” is a Latin phrase that means “in place,” the cancer hasn’t gnawed deeply into the skin and hasn’t spread. Bowen’s disease is as close to being 100 percent curable as any illness can be. Freezing it, drying it with an electric current, radiating it, applying F-fluorouracil cream and surgically removing it (including Mohs surgery) are options that your doctor will explain to your husband. The choice depends on the size and depth of the cancer and your husband’s health. And oh yeah, tell him to stop picking at it. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.
