Ready, set, bloom! Favorable weather has wildflower season poppy-ing off BY TARA ALATORRE

CAVE CREEK – The 2019 wildflower season has begun across Arizona, coloring the desert foothills in swaths of technicolor blooms among the towering saguaros. But the Sonoran Desert is just getting started folks, and it looks like we are in for one spectacular wildflower season. The state’s unusually wet winter produced record amounts of precipitation across the state Mexican poppies in bloom on the Go John Trail in Cave Creek.

including Maricopa County, which provided favorable, moist soil conditions needed for the wildflower seeds to germinate. Then late winter storms that hammered Arizona and the Phoenix Valley with snowstorms in February provided even more moisture, while keeping temperatures low giving the more finnicky annuals a chance to grow and bloom before the temperatures spike. Locally, Cave Creek, Bartlett Lake and Lake Pleasant have already seen fields of Mexican Poppies and desert Lupine booming along desert hillsides, but the peak bloom is not quite here yet, according to Cave Creek Regional Park’s Interpretive Ranger Mark Paulat. “In the later second half of March, if the weather stays the same, is when the poppies will likely be at peak bloom,” said Paulat in an interview with The Foothills Focus on March 7. “We started seeing poppy blooms in November and that is how we kind of new that this year would be good.” The big rain storms that hit the Cave Creek and New River areas in October from hurricane Rosa really kickstarted the germination of the plants, then continued rainfall throughout winter caused the soil to stay wet which is the ideal condition for desert wildflowers. But then the a unique snow storm that blanketed the Phoenix Valley at the end of February mildly stunted the blooms. “It [snow] helped with the added precipitation, but delayed the blooms,” Paulat said.

Well, the delay is over now, and don’t wait too long to get outside and catch a glimpse of the desert show, because these blooms don’t last long. Especially the poppies and other annuals, which do not like hot temperatures and will start to disappear once temperatures reach the 80s. “There is such a variety over the course of the next two to three months you are going to see everything,” he said. Perennials like the brittle bush and desert marigold’s robust blooms have already been on full display everywhere. While annuals like poppies, lupines, hyacinth and buckwheat are starting to bloom now and will continue to bloom in the coming weeks, which will be followed by cholla and other cacti blooms. “The saguaro is the grand finale, they are the last to bloom and mark the end of the season,” the ranger said. In the Cave Creek Regional Park visitors can stop by the Nature Center and see a variety of blooms on display that are easily accessible, but we recommend you hit the trails for the full experience and enjoy the great weather. The Cave Creek park offers eight trails for all levels of hikers, giving visitors the opportunity to see a variety of flowers and plants in the wild, while getting some spectacular views of Cave Creek. Don’t forget that poppies don’t open until the sun warms them up, so don’t hit the trail too early. Maricopa County Parks and Recreation has a “Go Wild For Flowers” Facebook page where you can share and view pictures of wildflowers from all over the county. Just use the hashtag #GoWildForFlowers or tag the Facebook

page with your flower pictures and the department will share them with park visitors. Make sure to include the type of bloom, what park the photo was taken in, the

Camp Maripai, Prescott, offers a traditional camp experience like archery and canoeing along with horsemanship programs for beginners through advanced riders.

Shadow Rim Ranch, Payson, offers outdoor adventures such as hiking and canoeing trip & travel sessions, plus outdoor cooking, zip-lining and archery.

Willow Springs, Prescott, emphasizes artistic endeavors like ceramics, fashion and theater, as well as hiking, archery, a ropes challenge course and aviation.

All four camps offer sessions that vary in length, from weekend family camp and day camp, to overnight camps and three-week-long quests. Summer camp begins the week of June 2 and runs for nine weeks, with the last camp week starting in late July.

Would you care for some grated wood pulp on your pasta? No, I didn’t think so. Me either. Hey, I didn’t think wood was edible. Seems to me we have a problem with our food supply when one of the most beloved and expensive cheeses is being packaged with sawdust (technically wood pulp filler). Oh, and that’s if there is actually any Parmesan in that little package of grated whoknows-what we are buying. Seems some packages labeled as Parmesan have every kind of cheese except Parmesan, which means once again the consumers have been duped. Eating food should be a pleasure, not a dangerous and potentially life-threatening experience. We should be able to grab a bag of lettuce and not worry about E-Coli. And if we like a certain ice cream, not potentially die from Listeria.

And no, wood pulp doesn’t belong in cheese. Also, who knows what all the chemicals are doing to us. Get a glimpse of Monsanto workers spraying fields of vegetables in hazmat suits with respirators looking like they have landed on Mars, but then we are suppose to eat those same veggies? Lordy help us. Of course, Dear Readers, not only are we being poisoned, but we are being ripped off. The packaging of food products has been a sneaky and pervasive tactic to get us, the unsuspecting public, to pay more for less. We are getting robbed. Most peanut butter has two ounces less in its jars and brownie mixes are now an ounce less. Even cookies have been “downsized” from their 14.5 ounce packages to 11.3 ounces. Potato chip bags are filled with air so they look bigger (they’re not), and even yogurt containers have bulked up so we won’t notice that we are now getting less. Holy guacamole, the trickery never ends! A common brand of guacamole now has a domed package so it looks bigger, and we (the stupid consumer) are supposed to happily go along with the deception.

Lies! And as if we don’t know the five-pound bag of sugar we are buying is really only four pounds! Yikes, so we are now paying more for less AND with the possibility of illness. Oh, and to complete the trifecta of the food fiascos, let’s not forget that the food industry has decided to package everything so tightly that no one can open anything up. Unless you have scissors, grips, razor blades and maybe a few hemostats nothing can be released from the “locked-inforever” plastic wraps that now make cooking a Herculean task. Hmmm . . . I have almost talked myself out of cooking yet again. OK, eating out doesn’t seem much safer. But maybe we just have to take our chances. So be cautious, my friends. Wash everything, read carefully, expect to pay more and get less, and to have to call for a really strong man to help with opening anything up. If something tastes like sawdust, stop eating immediately. Then pour a big glass of wine. It goes with everything and helps wash the wood chips down. Judy Bluhm is a writer and a local realtor.

Who can you trust to reduce stress of estate planning?

PROVIDED BY: SARAH FINELLI

ANTHEM – When it’s time to do your estate planning – and it’s actually never too soon to begin – you may find the process, at first, to be somewhat bewildering.

You’ll

have

many questions: What sort of arrangements should I make? Who should get what? And when? How can you address these and other issues?

You’ll need to get some help. In drawing up your estate plan, you will need to work with an attorney. And for guidance on the investments that can help fund your estate planning arrangements, such as a living trust, you can draw on the help of a financial advisor. You also may want to connect with a trust company, which can help facilitate your estate plans and coordinate the activities of your legal and financial professionals. Of course, you might think that only the very wealthy need a trust company. But that’s not really the case – people of many income levels have long used these companies. As long as you have a reasonable amount of financial assets, you likely can benefit from the various services provided by a trust organization. And these services can range from administration of a variety

of trusts (such as living trusts and charitable trusts) to assetmanagement services (billpaying, check-writing, etc.) to safekeeping services (such as providing secure vaults for jewelry and collectibles). In short, using a trust company can make things a lot easier when it’s time to plan and execute your estate. A trust company can help you in the following ways: Avoiding family squabbles It’s unfortunate, but true: Dividing the assets of an estate can cause ill will and turmoil among family members. But a trust company can act as a neutral third party, thus minimizing any feelings of unfairness. Providing greater control When you establish an arrangement such as a living trust, administered by the trust company, you can give yourself great control over how you want

regular scheduled intervals for sustainable assistance. The new program will allow individuals and businesses to

become monthly, quarterly or yearly contributors to the food bank, according to Pam DiPietro, executive director of Foothills Food Bank, In 2018, Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provided more than 1,119,952 pounds of food to clients, $97,672 in financial assistance and other life necessities to individuals and families in the desert foothills, which encompasses a 180-square mile area that includes Black Canyon City, Cave Creek, Carefree, Anthem, Desert Hills, New River, north Scottsdale and north Phoenix.

your assets distributed. For example, you can specify that a certain child receive portions of your estate spaced out over several years – a move that may appeal to you if you think this child might not be ready to handle large sums all at once. Saving time and effort As mentioned above, when you work with a trust company, you can let it do all the “legwork” of coordinating your plans with your financial professional, tax advisor and attorney. And these professionals are used to dealing with trust companies. Gaining Protection Trust companies assume fiduciary responsibility for your financial well-being – which means that your best interests will always be considered in each service and transaction performed. You can choose from among a variety of trust companies, large and small. Before choosing

one, you may want to check out the services and fees of a few different firms. In any case, as you move toward that time of your life when estate planning becomes more essential, talk to your attorney, tax advisor and financial professional about whether using the services of a trust company might be right for you.

MIM Paraguay Exhibit: New acquisitions share rich musical traditions

PHOENIX – In the Musical Instrument Museum’s (MIM) ever-changing galleries, there is always something different for guests to see and hear. Exhibits are frequently updated, and curators continue to conduct extensive fieldwork to share new instruments and objects, musical histories, video content and more.

Recently, the Paraguay exhibit in the MIM’s Latin America Gallery was updated to incorporate new acquisitions and stories which highlight classical music and folk traditions blending Amerindian and Hispanic influences. Rare acquisitions include a concert guitar that renowned Paraguayan classical guitarist Berta Rojas won in her first

national competition; a custom-made children’s harp that belonged to a daughter of Alfredo Stroessner, Paraguay’s former president; and a frame harp from Lorenzo Leguizamón, one of the most important composers and performers of Paraguayan traditional harp music. Guests can also see a 1950s folk flute and drum set played in religious festivals and processions. MIM’s purchase of these historic instruments funded an apprenticeship where the only living instrument maker of the flute and drum tradition taught his craft to an apprentice to keep the practice alive. For more information about MIM visit MIM.org.

Volunteers needed to spotlight endangered black-footed ferrets

Volunteers needed to spotlight endangered black-footed ferrets SELIGMAN — The Arizona Game and Fish Department is seeking volunteers to assist with spotlighting efforts to help document the population of endangered black-footed ferrets in Aubrey Valley and on the Double O Ranch near Seligman. As part of the recovery effort, the department has scheduled two spring spotlighting projects – March 21-25 and April 18-21 (the department also conducts two spotlighting projects in the fall). The spotlighting method

involves using high-powered lights to locate and identify blackfooted ferrets. Their eyeshine is reflected by the spotlight and helps surveyors with identifying and locating these elusive, nocturnal carnivores. Volunteers must have the ability to stay attentive from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. while spotlighting for black-footed ferrets and use, or learn how to use, a Global Positioning System (GPS). Volunteers can sign up by e-mailing azferret@azgfd.gov — with “spring spotlighting” in the subject line — by March 15 for this month’s project and by April

12 for the later opportunity. Volunteers are reminded to include their full name, a contact phone number, month(s) and night(s) available to spotlight, and full names of others who also will be attending (a parent or guardian must accompany any youth under 18). Volunteers also should note any equipment they can bring, such as GPS, clipboard, headlamp, pen, binoculars, walkie-talkies, compass, cordless rechargeable spotlight, backpack or 4X4 vehicle. A total of nine individual black-footed ferrets were captured in 2018, down from 19 in 2017. Of those nine, eight were captured in Aubrey Valley and one on the Double O Ranch. Almost 140 volunteers totaled 1,500 spotlighting hours over the course of the spring and fall projects. Visit www.azgfd.gov/wildlife and click on “Nongame Species” for more information about the blackfooted ferret recovery effort.

movie review

CAPTAIN MARVEL Director: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck Starring: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, Jude Law, Lashana Lynch, and Annette Bening Monte’s Rating 2.50 out of 5.00

BY MONTE YAZZIE FILM CRITIC

The newest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is “Captain Marvel.” It’s significant to recognize because in Marvel Studios’ 10-year venture into its comic book film dominance, the company has yet to feature a full-length film focused on a female superhero. For relative newcomers to the comic book film landscape, the DC Extended Universe was first to showcase a female lead film with “Wonder Woman,” which was met with an overwhelmingly positive reception. “Captain Marvel” is aiming for the same goal as “Wonder Woman,” weaving a story that has all the narrative elements involving female discrimination, bias and stereotyping that are

Design

still so relative in the current social climate today. It also works to display aspects of empowerment and the freedom that comes from embracing personal strengths, though some of that potential is squandered to keep the Marvel machine moving forward. There is an intergalactic war raging between a group of people called the Kree and a group of shapeshifters who call themselves the Skrull. Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is part of a team of Kree warriors who are sent on missions designated by a someone known as the Supreme Intelligence. Carol doesn’t remember much about her past but has a clear understanding of her role as a warrior. But there is something unique about Carol.

During a mission ambush, Carol narrowly escapes and finds herself on Planet C-53 (Earth) along with her memories of a distant past from this planet that begin to come back to her slowly. An early moment in “Captain Marvel,” which takes place in 1995, involves our protagonist crash landing into the ruins of a 90s cultural mainstay, a Blockbuster Video. The 90’s nostalgia doesn’ stop there. Aside from the lined shelves of VHS tapes making cinephiles remember the beauty of the “New Release” wall on a Friday night, there are a plethora of memorable songs. Peeking in and making you remember how much you loved Nirvana’s “Come as You Are,” and

En Vogue and Salt-N-Pepa’s “Whatta Man.” The emphasis on nostalgia that gives “Captain Marvel” its charming appeal; from a car chase scene that is scored with the rhythm from a 90s buddy-cop film, to small touches in design making you remember how to use the secret codes on your pager. It’s all amusing even though it doesn’t really feel like it serves the story in a significant way, it’s just there to spark a memory or open a feeling from the past. However, it becomes distracting and disappointing, that the most intriguing moments of “Captain Marvel” happen in quick flashbacks without much time given to really build the character of Carol Danvers with an intriguing foundation and well-established emotional drive. The flashbacks paint a portrait of a woman constantly pushed down and restrained by men, yet

one who is determined to get up and push back and push further. There is even a hint that Marvel had the opportunity to do their version of “Top Gun,” but two women piloting flights was deemed too dangerous for the its counterparts…sign me up for that movie immediately. It’s a shame that a majority of “Captain Marvel” disregards the powerful and personal elements composing the primary hero in favor of tying up some of the loose ends that still exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Without giving too much away, “Captain Marvel” finds ways to incorporate some aspects of early Marvel films and, of course, is building the bridge towards the continuation of “The Avengers” saga. Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson are great together, and they should have their own buddy-cop movie. Also, a cameo from Annette Bening is a nice, small touch. Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck try their best to make “Captain Marvel” their own, and in small places you can feel their influence. Unfortunately, “Captain Marvel” never completely finds its footing, but instead connects the necessary dots to move the Marvel franchise machine forward. The movie provides enough easy laughs and so-so scenes of spectacle to keep it from becoming too tedious. Still, the potential is visible throughout the film, which makes this effort disappointingly average.

Japanese paper kimono art travels west SHEA STANFIELD ARTS COLUMNIST

Flying high and “knowing no borders” is the foundation of artist Karen O’Hanlon's exquisitely constructed miniature Japanese Paper Kimonos. Karen grew-up in the lush landscapes of California. She remembers enjoying the creative process of making special occasion gifts for family and friends. In 1972, after attending two years of college, Karen joined Western Airlines as a stewardess. Not long into her career, Western merged with Delta Airlines, putting into motion a life-changing event for Karen. The airline merger provided an opportunity to travel internationally with routes to Japan where she gained new perspectives on Japanese culture and arts. In Japan Karen studied traditional Japanese paper art. Initially learning about the art of Japanese paper covered eggs from Narita restaurant owner, Yoko Kimura. Yoko introduced her to master paper artist Yuriko Kodama in 1995. This introduction proved to be a breakthrough in Karen’s inspired paper creations and she soon mastered the skill

of constructing three-dimensional paper dolls, “Washi Ningyo.” The day came when Yuriko Kodama offered Karen a set of cardboard pattern pieces for a kimono, made from a Japanese bus schedule. This was a defining moment in her focus in her Japanese art form. Karen feels honored to have had the opportunity to study with Yuriko Kodama, and only one other miniature kimono artist in the United States has studied under this master. Karen explains her folded paper art is not origami. Origami uses one piece of paper folded into objects. In contrast, the folded kimonos use 22 pieces of paper, exactly folded and meticulously fitted together. The "path to perfection," with this method, took Karen five years to master. In addition to her beautifully constructed paper kimonos Karen has expanded her use of Japanese papers by creating ginger jars. The technique is "Iris Folding," which originated in Holland. She uses approximately 40-50 folded strips of

Japanese paper which are taped and glued into place over a pattern creating a spiraling design that resembles the iris of an eye or camera lens. To see these pieces completed, under glass and framed is an awe-inspiring experience. Karen works in her home studio. This past summer she participated in the Bellevue Arts Museum Fair and Sausalito Art Festival. She is a juried artist in Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour each November at artist Beth Zink's studio in Cave Creek. This year Karen is celebrating her 10th year participating in the Celebration of Fine Art in Scottsdale open daily from now through March 14. You won't want to miss the opportunity to meet Karen and witness her creative process with Japanese papers. Karen plans to pass along the art of the Japanese Paper Kimono so the art will live on for future generations. To view Karen O’Hanlon’s work visit her website at kpohanlonstudio. com, and she may also be contacted by phone at 480-982-6483.

HOV lane on I-17 in north Phoenix closed until 2020 for construction PHOENIX – Drivers who use Interstate 17 in north Phoenix should plan for overnight lane restrictions between Jomax and Happy Valley roads and the long-term closure of two stretches of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes in the area. The Arizona Department of Transportation advises motorists to slow down and use caution around construction personnel and equipment while the following restrictions are in place: •

Southbound I-17 will be narrowed to two right lanes between Jomax and Pinnacle Peak roads from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday, March 14.

The northbound I-17 HOV lane between Pinnacle Peak

and Happy Valley roads was closed on Tuesday and is scheduled to remain closed through fall 2020. •

Beginning Wednesday night, the southbound I-17 HOV lane between Jomax and Pinnacle Peak roads will be closed and is scheduled to remain closed through fall 2020. The restrictions are necessary so crews who are reconstructing the I-17 traffic interchanges at Happy Valley and Pinnacle Peak roads can set up barrier to create a safe work zone. The interchange reconstruction project includes removing the roundabouts at I-17 and Happy Valley Road and building a diverging diamond interchange, and constructing a tight-diamond interchange at Pinnacle Peak

Road. The new interchanges are designed to improve safety and traffic flow in this fast-growing area of the Valley. Construction began in November 2018 and is scheduled for completion in fall 2020. Learn more on the project webpage. Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For more information, please call the ADOT Bilingual Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or go to azdot.gov/ contact and select Projects from the drop-down menu. For real-time highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT's Traveler Information Site at www.az511.gov, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511, except while driving.

Buffalo Chip will be featured on the Cowboy Channel and RFD-TV BY TARA ALATORRE

CAVE CREEK – The Buffalo Chip Saloon will soon be featured on two different docuseries, “Special Cowboy Moments” on RFD-TV and “Wild Rides” on the Cowboy Channel, both which are primetime shows about preserving Western lifestyles and its history.

The Buffalo Chip episode featured in the docuseries “Wild Rides” will debut on Sunday, March 24, at 7:30 local time, and the “Special Cowboy Moments” episode will debut on Wednesday, April 3, at 7 and 9 p.m. local time. Each episode will be broadcast to

KIB

tens of millions of homes and are approximately 30-minutes long, which will feature saloon owner and Cave Creek local Larry Wendt. Both shows highlight Wendt’s story of overcoming and persevering after an arson-caused fire burnt down the Buffalo Chip to a pile of rubble and ashes on Thanksgiving in 2015. “I decided that, if someone was going to set fire to the place, they probably didn’t want us around,” Wendt stated in a press

release from RFD-TV. But instead of giving up Wendt decided to rebuild the Buffalo Chip, and with the help of town locals and loyal bar patrons enough money was raised to keep Wendt’s employees on their feet until the bar could be rebuilt. Today, the Buffalo Chip is still a town staple for “Creekers” and visitors, offering live bull riding events, live music, dancing and other local events every week. It also hosts a church service every Sunday morning.

Spring Heritage Pecan and Wine Festival in Camp Verde CAMP VERDE - The sixth annual Spring Heritage Pecan and Wine Festival will take place on March 16 and 17, in downtown Camp Verde at the Community Field, 75 E. Hollaman Street. The Festival, presented by Camp Verde Promotions and the Town of Camp Verde, is a combination of several events rolled into one: the Pecan and Wine Festival, craft fair, Archeological Center and a host of activities surrounding the Arizona State Park. Admission to the Festival events and the Archaeological Center is free. Charges will apply for wine tastings, and the Fort Verde State Historical Park. However, if you stop by the Camp Verde Promotions Booth on the Soccer Field, you can pick up a $1 off Admission Coupon to the park, which is an authentic original 1860s military fort. Several of the original buildings are still existing and have authentic exhibits in each of them. The Pecan and Wine Festival has been around since 2013 and is held

annually on the third weekend in March. It features the choicest product of the vintner’s art from 19 of the Verde Valley’s premier wineries. There is a charge for wine tasting that will give you sample tickets and a commemorative wine glass that is yours to keep. In addition, there will be approximately 40 vendors, which includes a variety of food and other various products, along with musical entertainment. A craft fair with approximately 40 crafters will be held in the gym on both days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The local historical society will open the historic 1933 Camp Verde Jail, the 1917 George Hance House and the Camp Verde Historical Museum. The Festival is a family event designed to celebrate all the good things that make Camp Verde and the Verde Valley such a great place to stay and play. For additional information, please visit the following websites: visitcampverde.com or campverdepromotions.org.

cuddle in your lap or groom his litter mates. He is up to date on shots, fixed, microchipped and litter box trained. The adoption fee is $85. Is Westley the one for you? Please complete an Anthem Pets Matchmaker Application: https://form.jotform. com/41676646153157. Or visit AnthemPets.org.
