Cave Creek seeks development of cycling path through town MARC BUCKHOUT   MANAGING EDITOR  

The town of Cave Creek will continue to examine a plan that could bring bicycle lanes and pedestrian paths through approximately 4.5 miles of Cave Creek.   Following a presentation by Jason Harrington of E Group Landscape Architecture the merits of what would be an approximately $7 million project were discussed at the July 16 Cave Creek Town Council meeting.   The MAG Design Assistance

Program provides communities the opportunity to develop projects by assisting in the early planning and design stages. The intent is “to stimulate the integration of pedestrian and bicycle facilities into the planning and design of all types of infrastructure and development.”   “We think this is an opportunity to bring in people from outside the community that could help spur the economy,” Harrington said. “We also think this amenity could discourage the driver that makes several stops through

town using their car where they add to traffic congestion by stopping numerous times.”   Mike Rigney, the town’s assistant utilities manager, was in attendance as a member of the public in support of the plan.  “We’re developing a reputation as a place to bike, both off road and on road,” said Rigney, an organizer for the Cave Creek Bicycle Festival, which celebrated its third annual event in November.

The Town of Cave Creek is looking for funding sources to pay to build bike lanes through the center of town. A project that would cost an estimated $7 million also would include walking paths and equestrian trails.

  After participating in baseball as a player, a coach and as a physical therapist Chris Matusz is taking all of what he has learned and combining it in his latest effort, Total Sports Performance.  The Tramonto-based business is named after Total Sports Therapy, the physical fitness office where Matusz works for owner Drew Giardina, right next door.  “I’m focusing on baseball, but I’ve worked with other athletes already,” Matusz said. “I like being able to work with the small groups or one-on-one. There aren’t any distractions here. We can just work. It’s fun

seeing them get better.”  Matusz, a Valley product and one- time Cave Creek resident, attended St. Mary’s High School, advancing to Chandler Gilbert Community College before accepting a baseball scholarship to Iowa Wesleyan College Mount Pleasant, Iowa. There he was one of the program’s starting pitchers, compiling a 16-18 career record with a 4.66 E.R.A. During his senior year Matusz went 4-4 with a 3.65 E.R.A. in 61 1/3 innings. “I got a couple looks by professional teams after college, but as a right hander I was only hitting 88-90, maybe 91 miles per hour on a good day with my fastball so they weren’t willing

to sign me,” Matusz said. Since coming back to the Valley Matusz has spent some time as a coach, a Cactus Shadows varsity assistant under then head coach Tom Scalia, before getting into physical therapy. In his latest endeavor he’s focusing most of his efforts with younger athletes. “I worked with a bunch of high school football players from Sandra Day O’Connor on speed and agility things, but mostly it’s the youth baseball kids. You get an 8, 9, 10 year old and you can pretty much start from scratch,” he said.

Boulder Creek hires new athletic director MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR

These days life is a bit of a blur for Matt Hreha. The 35-yearold and his family are among Anthem’s newest residents. Since being hired as Boulder Creek High School’s athletic director in June, Hreha, who replaces Matt Kuffel, has been doing all he can to get settled both professionally and personally. Although he didn’t officially start until Monday the Jaguars new A.D. was on campus Thursday, just eight days after moving to the Valley, trying to get his bearings at the high school in between getting his family situated. “I got a chance to meet some of the varsity coaches the other day and I just wanted to get across the message that I’m a good guy and I’ll do what I can to support them,” he said. “I know when new people come in there is some trepidation,

but I think they’ll find I’m an easy person to work with. My wife and I have found a place to rent in Anthem. My oldest daughter will be a third grader at Canyon Springs Elementary and then I’ve got a two-yearold. We’re finding out about all the amenities Anthem has to offer to get them involved with. That’s exciting. We’re also looking to find a church where we’ll feel comfortable.” As a young teacher and basketball coach Hreha and his wife moved to Kingman from their home in Ohio. After a short stint there the couple moved back to Ohio in 2006 when a job opportunity drew them back to their home state. Hreha, though, said he quickly knew he wanted to find his way back to the Grand Canyon State. “I’ve been looking for the last two years and I’m really exciting for the opportunity. From my time in Kingman I got a chance to become familiar

with the Deer Valley Unified School District and knew of their schools’ reputation,” said Hreha, who coached in the Northwest Region, in which the Deer Valley schools were rivals for Kingman. Having spent the last four years as an assistant principal at a school in Circle View, Ohio, located approximately 20 miles south of Columbus, Hreha said he’s excited to be back in the sports realm. “I just love everything about

Defending himself against any ill perceptions people may have about him as a fan, Hreha sets the record straight. “People hear you’re a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and they think you’re a fron runner, but I’ve stuck with the Pirates through a lot of lean years,” he said.

High Desert Little League, consisting of 11 – 12 years olds from Anthem, Tramonto and New River will have to do things the hard way if they are to advance to the 2012 Little League Western Regional. After opening the Arizona State Little League Tournament with a pair of wins, defeating Nogales 3-2, on July 18 and San Tan Valley 5-3, on Thursday the team dropped its first game Monday, falling to Tucson Rincon 13-5 in the double elimination event. “It was a lot closer than the score would indicate,” coach Kevin Trudeau said. “We were up 4-1 going to the fourth, but they got two runs across and then on a 3-2 pitch with two outs one of their kids, a good ball player, hit a 3-run home run to give them a 6-4 lead.” High Desert would respond, pulling within one at 6-5 before the Rincon pulled away for the win. In order to keep their hopes of winning the state tournament alive High Desert faced a must win game on Tuesday night

when they squared off in Tucson with McCormick Ranch (results unavailable at press time). If they won that game they would reach the final four of the 14 team tournament, and play another must-win game tonight at 7 p.m. tonight. The tournament runs through the championship game set for 7 p.m., Saturday in Tucson. “Going into the loser’s bracket, I’m not going to lie we have a tough road ahead of us, but we have the pitching to do it,” he said. “We’re going to battle. There’s no quit in this team.” The High Desert Team advanced to the state tournament by going 6-1 in the District 3 tournament, which concluded July 11 with a win in Anthem. The winner of the state tournament advances to the 2012 Little League Western Regional Aug. 3 – 11, in San Bernadino, Calif. To follow the state tournament go to eteamz.com/arizonadist12.

path cont. from page 1 “Since we have hundreds of cyclists coming through town we have an obligation to give them a safe place to ride.”   Rigney said Cave Creek and Carefree are notably absent in having bike lanes, which go from Phoenix and Scottsdale all the way through to Tonto National Forest.   Councilman Steven LaMar said current conditions are far from ideal for cyclists.   “You’re really taking your life into your own hands when you ride a bike on the streets in Cave Creek,” he said.   The effort would also look to develop pedestrian paths as well as equestrian trails through town.   Harrington said much of the planning for the project will come in the form of seeking out grants, explaining some project could be done in pieces, as some grants require matching funds. He adds that some grants will pay up to 90 percent of costs.   Lamar said he would be happy to help in the grant writing process.

The Cave Creek Bicycle Festival, which had its third annual event in November includes a road-race, an off-road event as well as an event for children. Cave Creek is looking to add bike lanes through town to make things safer for cyclists.

Councilwoman Shelley V. Anderson said her biggest concern was that the equestrian contingent would be as well taken care of as the cyclists.   “With the number of equestrian riders in Cave Creek it surprises me that the focus seems to be more toward cyclists,” she said.   Lamar, agreed, stating that in addition to riding his bicycle

he also has been a horse owner in Cave Creek since 1986 and would like to see the town made more friendly for equestrian riders.   Mayor Vincent Francia expressed optimism that the trail through town could have a similar effect to that of the 52nd Street trail, which he said has been in use daily since it was completed.

youth cont. from page 1 “By the time you get a high school kid you have to keep the adjustments a lot more subtle because they have a swing that they’ve been using all their life. With the young ones you can just hit the reset button and build things from the ground up.” On Thursday Joe Wright of Anthem had his 8-year-old son Seth in for a workout. After playing at the Farm level of High Desert Little League, Seth will be moving up to the Minors when the next season starts in October. “I’ve played baseball and softball so I can help him with some things, but Seth wants to be a pitcher so I want to get him some help and I could see improvement after the very first workout with Chris,” Joe said.

Fatal accident shut shuts down northbound I-17 STAFF REPORT

A two-vehicle accident left one person dead at approximately 3 p.m., Saturday on I-17 just south of New River. According to reports the two

vehicles collided when one of the cars crossed over several lanes of traffic at mile post 231. Two people were taken to the hospital by ambulance and one person was taken by helicopter.

The accident closed down the northbound lanes of I-17 with all traffic diverted at mile post 229 at Anthem.

Anthem council meets tonight STAFF REPORT

The Anthem Community Council will meet at 6:30 p.m., tonight at the Anthem Community Center for the board’s monthly meeting. Amongst the items to be discussed is a recommendation by the Fiscal and Resource Management Committee to move $500,000 from the operating fund to the reserve fund.

Additionally the Community Planning and Development Committee will give a report about their July 3 meeting. During the meeting a group called Anthem Loves Dogs addressed the committee about their desire for a dog park to be created in Anthem. Currently the closest dog park is Jackass Acres located on the frontage road between Anthem and New River.

The Planning Committee also is weighing the needs for other amenities such as additional sports fields, a competition pool, improvements to the amphitheater, as well as other requested recreational facilities.

Boulder Creek grad competes in British Open STAFF REPORT

FACEBOOK.COM/TheFOOTHILLS.FOCUS

Scott Pinckney, a 2007 Boulder Creek graduate, represented Anthem during the British Open on Thursday and Friday at Royal Lytham St. Anne in England. Pinckney, who eventually missed the cut by two shots,

ended the first round of the Major just four shots off the lead and alone in 14th place. On the 7,086 - yard par – 70 layout Pinckney shot a 2-underpar 68 on Thursday highlighted by six birdies along with two bogeys and one double bogey. Round two would be his undoing though as Pinckney

shot a triple bogey, five bogeys and one birdie. The Arizona State graduate was the state runner-up both his junior and senior seasons at Boulder Creek. He also helped the Jaguars team to the state tournament during the 2006 season.

director continued from page 3 school level, Hreha said he has a lot of things he wants to do. Though Anthem is attached to the Valley he said he sees some parallels of being around the Jaguars program and what it was like in Kingman. “I already sense the tightknit community feel,” he said. “I want to get out and talk to as many people as possible and use the resources in the local community. I’ll ask them what they perceive is working and what isn’t working when it comes to the relationship between the high school’s athletic programs and the business community. I want

to take advantage of what is working and change the things that aren’t.” When it comes to success for the athletic department and his coaches Hreha said there’s one simple key. “I’ll try and get across the importance of communicating, whether it’s with the parents, the student-athletes, with the community and with me,” he said. Hreha said he feels strongly about the role of high school coaches. “Well, they wouldn’t keep track of wins and losses if people didn’t think that was important,

but good coaches help foster good young men and women,” he said. “ For some students there are athletic opportunites beyond high school, but for most teens it’s an avenue to have some fun, but also learn some life lessons that will help them in college or in whatever they pursue. I’m excited to get started, to work with the coaches, the students and to meet as many people in the community as I possibly can.”

I’m an all-around good puppy and pretty easy going. I would love to meet my forever family and grow up in my new home.

If you would like more information on Tango or other dogs in need of loving homes, please contact Arizona Labrador & Giant Breed Rescue at azlabsandgiants.org. The adoption fees cover the cost of spay/neuter, basic vet check, heartworm test, microchip, 5 in 1 vaccination, and Rabies and Bordatella vaccinations. The group is also desperately in need of volunteers, especially foster homes. For information on being a volunteer go to azlabsandgiants.org.

movie review

Dark Knight rises to occasion in finale of trilogy MONTE YAZZIE SPECIAL FOR THE FOOTHILLS FOCUS

The dreaded finale to a trilogy could be the most difficult film to successfully execute for any franchise, especially one that is lauded and accompanied with such high expectations as The Dark Knight Rises arrives with. The Batman reboot, headed by the auteur Christopher Nolan, has established a darker, more sinister edge with depth-rich characters that struggle with aspects of identity and moral choice. In the wake is a great introduction with Batman Begins and the near perfect sequel The Dark Knight, leaving only the final act in the Dark Knight chapter to trudge up the mountain of high expectation. And, with Internet buzz and plot rumors around every corner how could it succeed? Well, The Dark Knight Rises is an impressive feat that provides a suitable and satisfying conclusion to an outstanding saga. The film begins with a spectacular mid-air sequence in which we are introduced to the masked villain Bane (Tom Hardy), a hulking and menacing threat, who is prophesying destruction on the world. The restored Gotham City has taken control of crime however the sacrifice is weighing heavy on the mind of Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman). Gotham doesn’t need Batman anymore, so it seems,

and Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) has been living as a recluse in Wayne Manor for the past 8 years however aided by the ever-compassionate voice of reason Alfred (Michael Caine). Batman does not possess super powers, underneath the costume he is a man, and Bruce Wayne has been feeling the side effects of the physical life of the hero. Bane’s setup is complex and involves plans that directly threaten Gotham City and Batman. Bane is an unforgiving, yet intelligent tyrant, determined to restore balance to the world through the destruction of Gotham and the implementation of civil anarchy. Bane isn’t the only criminal in Gotham; the lovely Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) is a cat burglar who steals from aristocrats, one of who is Bruce Wayne, and her theft of a family heirloom provokes Bruce out of seclusion and back into the cape to investigate. While Bruce Wayne has been absent his enterprise has been suffering. Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) is trying save the business by partnering with philanthropist Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) who is planning on using the company’s technology to provide clean, sustainable energy for the world. However, Bane has other plans for Wayne Enterprises. The story, however complex, dreadful, and dark, is

something that needs to been seen before spoilers abound. It’s terrific and encompasses the whole of the Dark Knight story in clever and ingenious ways. There is some interesting social commentary going on as well; correlations to the economic

The DARK KNIGHT RISES

4.5 out of 5 Dir: Christopher Nolan Starring: Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt woes of our society, the Occupy movement, class identification, and our nations overwhelming need for control and dominance are all examined in some form.

Nolan is an amazing director; he understands the dynamic of character development and how to build dramatic elements around spectacular action sequences. This a complicated film to direct and write, there are loose ends that need to be wrapped up and character dilemmas that need to solved, and to a point those aspects are accomplished. The addition of new characters and how they function within the story makes it complicated at times, which makes for a small flaw in execution. The acting is impressive. Christian Bale is good as Batman but even better as Bruce Wayne. The fact that Batman is missing for a large portion of the first act could hinder the film, but Christian Bale does such a good job as Bruce Wayne

it actually improves it. The film gives more time to Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine, definitely not a bad thing considering they own each of their characters in inspiring ways. Anne Hathaway is good as the self indulgent Selina Kyle, as is Joseph Gordon-Levitt who plays John Blake an overzealous cop that understands what is truly at stake for Gotham City. Tom Hardy has the difficult task of following up the performance of Heath Ledger’s Joker. Hardy is good as Bane; it’s a difficult role considering much of the emotion of the character must be portrayed through the eyes since his face is covered with a voice-altering mask. Hardy has proven overly capable of being able to embody numerous characters in past films, and he does his best with the slightly obscured and confusing personality of Bane. The Dark Knight Rises is a striking and captivating film that builds on the sturdy foundation of the first two films. Superhero films are inherent with familiar trappings, it’s not often that one continuously excels and remains engaging, especially one that runs nearly three hours long. Enjoy The Dark Knight Rises it offers a fitting finale to an impressive trilogy.

opinions and letters

Finders are not always keepers Have you ever been remodeling your home and discovered $500,000 hidden in the walls? Neither have I. But it did really happen to some people in Arizona. A fairly unique gentleman continued to live in his house until he died. He WILLIAMS had a habit of hiding valuables (such as cash, gold, stocks and bonds) throughout his home, often in green ammunition cans. After his death and over the course of the next seven years, his daughter and her sister looked for hidden valuables. They eventually sold the house. The new owners purchased the house “as is” and hired a company to remodel it. Shortly afterward, $500,000 in cash was found hidden in ammunition cans in the walls. Litigation between the prior owners and the current owners followed.

The Arizona Court of Appeals noted that common law classifies found property as being either mislaid, lost, abandoned or treasure trove. Property is considered mislaid if the owner intentionally puts it somewhere and then later forgets about it. Before property can be considered to be abandoned, it must have been voluntarily forsaken by its owner. A finder of lost or abandoned property has a greater right to possess it over anyone other than the rightful owner. In contrast, a finder of misplaced property has a duty to turn the property over to the owner of the premises, who then has a duty to safeguard the property for the true owner. The appellate court looked at the facts and circumstances surrounding the case. The new owners argued that the discovered cash was abandoned and belonged to them. The daughters argued that their father’s money should be part of his estate.

Abandonment is not presumed and must be proven. In short, it must be established that someone voluntarily and intentionally gave up their known rights to the property. In this case, it was undisputed that the original owners did not even know about the additional cash and as soon as they became aware of it, they attempted to protect their rights by seeking to recover the property through pleadings in probate court. Given the facts of this case, the property could not be considered to be abandoned. There was no evidence that the gentleman, who kept at least some of his money in military ammunition containers, intended to relinquish ownership of those funds. The appellate court gave the money to the original owner’s family. The case is Grande v. Jennings, 229 Ariz. 584, 278 P.2d 1287 (Ct. App. 2012).   Judge Williams is the presiding justice of the peace for the Northwest Regional Court Center. His column appears monthly in The Foothills Focus.

Freedom and responsibility must be connected  I so enjoyed reading about Gilbert Lopez “Former Cave Creek council member earned stripes in Air Force.” (The Foothills Focus, July 18) Recently we have endured and heard much about freedoms from dissident groups all over our country.  In celebrating our Independence Day, I reflected seriously about the promises and the pitfalls of freedom and the men and women like Mr. Lopez to whom we owe our freedoms. What is freedom though? Freedom to have a say in government? Freedom to do what I want to do?  Freedom to have no government?  Freedom to take what other people are unable to keep me from getting? Freedom to travel

The Foothills Focus

where I want using whatever means I want?  Freedom to act in a way that may be dangerous to myself or others? Freedom to take more for myself than others can have? Freedom to buy what I need? Freedom to buy more than I need?   Freedom to use more than I need?  Freedom to use for myself what others need?   Freedom to blame?  Freedom to  enslave?  Freedom to misrepresent the truth for my own ends? Freedom to hurt or kill? Unless it is tied to personal responsibility and the concept of the brotherhood of mankind, Freedom can be dangerous. Is it possible to have freedom without responsibility? What is responsibility? To tell the truth. To keep informed. To make accurate

judgments about information. To live in harmony with my neighbors. To understand other people on the planet. To live in harmony with the planet. To accept the same freedoms for others that I covet for myself.  To accept the equality and worth of all peoples. To bring no harm to other people. To leave this “campground” ( our planet)  better than we found it. Freedom that is synonymous with greed will destroy us as a society. But freedom closely aligned with responsibility can be our salvation.
