NEW RIVER – A local dog sanctuary, Rusty’s Angels, which specializes in caring for and re-homing senior-aged

dogs is a top five finalist for a $15,000 national award in the Alba Botanica’s Do Good, Do Beautiful Grant Program. If Rusty’s Angels is one of the top two organizations with the most

online votes it will receive the grant funding; and it is asking for the community to support them by voting online daily. The Do Good, Do Beautiful Grant celebrates everyday women doing extraordinary good in the world, and it will be awarding two female-led organizations $15,000 to create, expand or sustain a project in their non-profit organization. Alba Botanica’s panelists chose only five finalists from over 250 entries from around the county, and Rusty’s Angels is the only Arizona-based organization, and the only dog rescue in the top five. “We just need everyone to

Anthem Community Council CEO tenders resignation

TARA ALATORRE STAFF

ANTHEM – On January 24, at the Anthem Community Council Board of Directors meeting,

President Roger Willis made the resignation announcement that, Jenna Kohl, will officially leave her position as the ACC Community Executive Officer effective February 15. Kohl, who has served as the ACC’s CEO since 2010, will go on to serve as the Executive Director of the DC Ranch Community Council in Scottsdale. Kohl was unable to attend the January 24 meeting, but she wrote a statement that was read by President Willis. “I’m not just leaving a community, a physical place, but much more – special

people, rich traditions, history, shared experiences. Anthem has all of that in spades,” she said in the statement. “I am truly lucky to have been part of Anthem’s journey, through its growing pains into the lively, amenity rich, financially stable community that it is today.” The board appointed officer, Neal Shearer, ACC’s Community Operations Officer, as internal interim CEO. He has served as the ACC’s COO since 2010, and will assume Kohl’s responsibilities until the board determines the next steps in filling the position.

More water woes for New River, Desert Hills TARA ALATORRE STAFF

DESERT HILLS – Just when New River and Desert Hills thought its water troubles had been temporarily quelled, EPCOR recently announced that the new location for its water standpipe, which will supply residents with approximately 50,000 gallons of drinking water a day, will have to be relocated. The new location of the standpipe is in the same area as the original site announced in December, but slightly east and set back about 145 feet north of Desert Hills Road. The new location is closer to Meridian Avenue, which means it is closer to Anthem and that is causing some concern from residents about the truck traffic.

The final layout plans for the new standpipe location should be completed by this week, and on February 22 the Anthem Community Council will vote on whether or not to approve the new location. Maricopa Department of Transportation and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality will then need to approve the new plans before construction can officially begin, according to Troy Day, the Vice President of Arizona Operations at EPCOR. Day still believes the pipe can be completed in time for the April deadline before the water haulers’ permits expire, which would potentially leave many residents in the community high

Valentine’s Day — Creeker style Tara Alatorre Staff CAVE CREEK – The official holiday of love and romance is only one week away, and if you have a sweetheart to celebrate with, choosing what to do on Valentine’s Day can seem like an arduous task. A good way to narrow down the choices is to keep your activities and purchases local. For every $100 spent at a locallyowned business, $43 stays in the local economy, said Patty Villeneuve, a spokesperson for the Carefree Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce. “Out of $100 spent with a non-locally owned business only $13 stays in the local economy,” she said. “Buy local or bye bye local!” So, this year on Valentine’s Day book a suite at the cozy Prickly Pear Inn, which is nestled in the center of Cave Creek, and puts you walking distance from a plethora of restaurants, bars, and hiking trails; so you can relax and walk, all while taking in the sights without the worry of driving or the hassle of finding a parking spot in town. The Foothills Focus rounded up just some of the local businesses offering events or services to help plan the perfect Valentine’s Day- Creeker style. Prickly Pear Inn and Grumpy Mule Mercantile Start your Valentine’s Day by parking at the Prickly Pear Inn’s underground parking garage (something only an Arizonan who has suffered steering wheel burns would truly appreciate), because that vehicle is staying put until tomorrow. Check-in to a deluxe king room with a private sundeck. Then after you have settled in, check out the digs at the Grumpy Mule, which is a store onsite that sells beer,

wine, gourmet foods, artwork and unique gifts. Reservations are required in advance, for more information visit https://pricklypearinnaz.com. Spur Cross Stables No Cave Creek adventure would be complete without saddling up. Take in the sunset with your loved one on a horseback trail ride with the beautiful views at Spur Cross Stables. The ranch provides guided horse trail riding tailored specifically to fit your needs, from 1 hour to a full day. Design your own private ride or group ride, exploring natural wonders, with journeys that include Native American ruins, Petroglyphs, Seven Springs and crested saguaro. Advanced reservations are required, for more information visit http://www.hotairexpeditions. com/ or call 480-502-6999. Carefree Hot Air Expeditions If you can’t get on a horse, try another unusual mode of transportation to catch beautiful sweeping views of the Valley with a hot air balloon ride. Carefree Hot Air Expeditions is offering Valentine’s Day balloon rides in the morning starting at 6:45 a.m. and in the afternoon at 3:45 p.m. There is a champagne toast waiting for you when you land served with either breakfast or appetizers (afternoon) from Vincent’s Café. Advanced reservations are required, for more information visit http://www.hotairexpeditions. com/ or call 480-502-6999.

Did your team win? Football. No longer just a game, but a sensation! During the Super Bowl we will not be derailed by current events or mundane news. ISIS attacks or a missile launch by North Korea? Do not bother us! We had THE GAME to watch! There is the spectacle of rushing, passing, unnecessary roughness, tackling, kicking and touchdowns to absorb and discuss. One winner and one loser.

If it is chosen as a winner for the grant the money will be used towards its veterinary expenses for 2018. Winners will be announced in March and will be flown out to the awards ceremony in New York City. “In 2017 our medical expense total was $30,087 so this grant is huge to us,” she said. Most of Rusty’s Angels rescues arrive because their owner has passed away or has moved into

13 million slices of pizza on Super afternoon! What did we wash it down with? Try 325 gallons of beer! It appears that the Super Bowl is a never-ending food fest. It is the second largest food consumption day of the year, right behind Thanksgiving. We will eat all manner of unhealthy, fattening, tasty things that we might never touch the rest of the year. Which is a very good thing, because we’d all blow up like blimps if we kept it up. Come to think of it, maybe it’s good that football has a rather short season. I decided to get some Velveeta cheese and make a delicious dip. My daughter yelled at me and said that Velveeta is made by the devil and is nothing more than yellow chemicals. My girlfriend says the thought of Velveeta makes her ill and it should be banned as a food product. My neighbor says that Velveeta is not even cheese! My doctor claims that Velveeta will clog the arteries faster than you can scream, “Touchdown!” I say “Foul!” Dice up the yellow log of goodness, mix with salsa and microwave for a minute. Grab the tortilla chips and you too, can become a Food Champion. Hey, a Game Day a nursing home. As long as the dog is healthy enough to handle a transition into a new home the rescue will attempt to find a perfect forever home for the pet. If the dog is not healthy enough then they live out whatever time they have left at the sanctuary knowing unconditional love until the very end. Since it was founded in 2014, Rusty’s Angels has rescued 93 senior canines and re-homed 53 of them. “Providing excellent veterinary care for our seniors for the rest of their life or until they are adopted is a very expensive commitment that we take very seriously so this grant will go a long way for us,” Spear said. Voting can be done daily at https://www.albabotanica.com/ en/dogooddobeautiful, until February 18. To learn more visit www.rustysangelssanctuary.org or call 480-250-0251.

without a cheese dip would be a “Cheesepocalypse!” Okay, so we take the Super Bowl pretty seriously. Even if you didn’t like either team, you probably cheered for one. And maybe a non-stop day of eating without the hassle of making a turkey, baking pies and getting the china out is why we love it so much. We can kick back and watch greatness. There is glory in long bombs thrown with precision and heartbreak in a fumble. We moan at the near misses and cheer at those big moments. Super Bowl. One blissful day or tragic disappointment depending on which jersey you were wearing. Dear Readers, I hope your team won! If not, there is always next year. And if you are one of the millions of Americans who indulged in a little too many dips, chips, wings and beer, don’t worry. Tomorrow is a new day . . . .to tighten our belts, step up our exercise routine and eliminate all fattening foods. Of course, baseball season is coming. Hot dog and a beer? Eat, drink and Game On!

fire crew were all there to honor the heroes. On December 14, 53-year-old, Warren Raisanen, was riding a stationary bike at Orange Theory Fitness in Peoria when he collapsed and became unresponsive. Two bystanders, Suzanne Chang and Morgan Morrow, both nurses, rushed to his aid and began rescue breaths and chest compressions. Staff at Orange Theory Fitness grabbed the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) it had on site and rushed it to the victim where the two nurses delivered an electrical shock. After one more round of CPR he started breathing on his own. He quickly recovered and was alert and talking by the time he was in the ambulance. “Early bystander CPR and defibrillation is a key to survival in a cardiac emergency,” said Peoria Fire Chief, Bobby Ruiz.

The City of Phoenix already extended the water permits issued to the water haulers from December to April 30, and

The looming deadline quickly set things into motion, and the original site plans for the standpipe were rapidly drawn up to address the growing concerns from the community. This resulted in some overlooked issues with the original site Anthem agreed to lease EPCOR. Maricopa Department of Transportation determined that the site was inflicting with a right-of-way crossing at Skunk Creek Wash and denied the permit. Also, residents who lived near the original proposed site on Desert Hills Drive and 17th Avenue were voicing concerns about the traffic the standpipe

EPCOR estimates that it will provide residents in the area with 50,000 gallons of water per day once the pipe is built, which would bring a minimum of ten trucks a day coming and going from the new station and could be as many as 30 to 60 trucks a day. According to the agreement, EPCOR will charge a special water-hauling rate of $9.55 per thousand gallons for area residents and is priced to ensure the customers will not be adversely financially impacted, according to a letter submitted by EPCOR to the Arizona Corporation Commission.

Lightning in a Bottle

Pictured: A glass pendant with an opal made by Barbano Glass. SHEA STANFIELD

Urban Dictionary defines lightning in a bottle as “capturing something powerful and elusive, being able to hold it, show it to the world, performing a rare feat, a moment of creative brilliance…” The definition most certainly describes the mystery and magic in the skilled artistry of local glass artist, Anthony Barbano, of

Barbano Glass. Anthony specializes in the art of fume glass, an ultra contemporary glass blowing technique. Working, much as a modern day wizard, smoothly and confidently, with the wisdom of an ancient craft Anthony melts 24K gold and pure silver into fascinatingly spectacular blown glass creations. As with all “Masters of their Universe”

Anthony paid his dues dedicating time and focus to earning an education that would serve as the foundation of his awe inspiring glass magic. Anthony constructed the footings of his foundation in glass by attending the University of Utah where he completed a Bachelor’s of Fine Art. He continued to build on this foundation by traveling to Murano, Italy to connect with his Italian ancestors and meet with Murano’s “masters of glass.” With a firm grounding in the traditional glass blowing techniques Anthony began applying his skills into the art form by combining ancient glass blowing techniques with modern materials and processes. Currently, the “Fumed Furnace-work by Barbano Glass” is Anthony’s newest body of art work. This innovative art involves the skillful execution of melting 24K gold and pure silver into glass first on a torch, then in a furnace. The process distinctively advances the progressive possibilities of physical vapor deposition (fume) into never-before-seen depth of color in three dimensional glass art. The Barbano Glass Collection is extremely durable, melting at

6,000 degrees. Each piece is oneof-a-kind, hand made, original work of art, signed and dated for authenticity with titanium. The entirety of Anthony Barbano’s creations, are inspired by natural elements, both representational and abstract resulting in aweinspiring original masterpieces. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Anthony Barbano and experience the magic of glass, now until March 25,

2018 at Arizona Fine Art Expo, in Scottsdale, Arizona, Scottsdale Road and Jomax, open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. www.arizonafineartexpo.com. To contact Anthony, view a selection of his stunning glass art, or to purchase a piece visit website www.baranoglass.com. Contact Arts Columnist, Shea Stanfield, on flowingquill@ yahoo.com.

movie review

Oscar Snubbed Part 2: Never Nominated MONTE YAZZIE

As we discussed last week, there have been numerous films throughout history that have been snubbed for the Oscar’s Best Picture category. However, that’s not the only category that has seen its share of snubbed nominations. Best actor and actress, best director, and best cinematographer have seen their snubs as well. Here is a list of a few people who have never been nominated for an Oscar. Best Actor Jim Carrey - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) If you haven’t had the chance to watch the documentary “Jim and Andy” which details the extent that Jim Carrey went through to become Andy Kaufman in the film “Man on the Moon,” do yourself a favor and watch that immediately, it’s fascinating. Jim Carrey has never been nominated for an Oscar. Let that set in for a moment. Mr. Carrey, who got his start as a zany stand-up comedian, progressed into quite the actor during the late 90’s. In 2004 the actor gave his best performance in Michel Gondry’s film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”. Mr. Carrey combines a mix of different emotions in portraying a complicated

Best Actress Marilyn Monroe - Some Like It Hot (1960) Billy Wilder’s romantic comedy “Some Like It Hot” scored Oscar nominations for Jack Lemmon and Wilder but none for Marilyn Monroe who many times steals the show and matches verbal wits with Lemmon and Tony Curtis throughout the film. She is iconic in the role, beautiful and captivating while also being witty and humorous throughout the film. She owns every single scene, ultimately becoming the highlight of the film as history progressed. The movie has all the sensibilities of a Marx Brothers comedy highlighted by the charm and sexual confidence that Ms. Monroe embodied. Looking at the work that the actress produced in her career, it’s a shame that a nomination for Oscar never came her way.

would consider for a nomination. Sean Connery won the best supporting actor award for this film, but Mr. De Palma was excluded from the nomination conversation. On the list of obvious snubs, Brian De Palma’s name is at the top of the list.

character struggling to find his place in the world after the loss of love. It’s one of those performances that just gets better with time.

Best Director Brian De Palma - The Untouchables Brian De Palma has never been nominated for an Academy Award… never!! That’s shocking. The director of “Carrie”, “Scarface”, “Carlito’s Way”, and “The Untouchables” has crafted some of the most impressive films in cinematic history but has never received a nomination for best director. While the director does dabble in entertainment that pushes horrific, grim, and outlandish qualities of genre filmmaking, which are easy reasons why Academy voters may have overlooked a nomination, “The Untouchables” checks all the bullets one

Best Cinematographer Raoul Coutard - Breathless (1960) Raoul Coutard may not be a recognizable name but the films he worked on revolutionized the methodologies for camera use in films. Mr. Coutard was the consistent collaborator for master filmmaker JeanLuc Godard. The use of the handheld camera, the insistence of utilizing natural lighting, and the use of black and white photography would all come to define the practice of these skillsets in the French New Wave movement in film during the 1960’s. “Breathless” is one of the highlights of the French New Wave movement, one that Raoul Coutard had a large hand in curating. Mr. Coutard’s extensive films have an influence that is undeniable, which makes it all the more disappointing he was never recognized for an Oscar.

GLENDALE - Jaque was born January 10, 1933, in Yuma, Ariz., and was the eldest of four children. She died peacefully of stroke complications, January 9, 2018, in Collegedale, Tenn. She is predeceased by her parents; John W. Rose and Fern P. Rose; husband John Meldrajs; son John Lynn Meldrajs; daughter-in-law Donna Forrest; sisters Kathrene Annabelle Tank; and Jane Lauretta Wilson. She is survived by; daughters Ilga Jane Meldrajs; and Nora Kay (Richard) Moody; son Aivars Meldrajs; David Meldrajs; granddaughters Elsa, Hannah, Sarah and Lena Moody; brother Larry Dale Rose; and nieces and nephews. Jaque graduated from Peoria High

School, and then went on to graduate from Phoenix and La Sierra Colleges. She matriculated at LLU School of Medicine, attending for one year and then worked in the microbiology lab. Jaque married John Meldrajs in September 1964, in Loma Linda, Calif. She grew up on a homestead west of Phoenix near present-day Sun City, Ariz., and lived in New River for 45 years, working as a certified medical technologist and microbiologist in the Phoenix Valley for over 30 years. Jaque and her husband were active members of the Glendale, Ariz., Seventh-day Adventist Church. Jaque was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. She is remembered for her compassion. Her home was an open door to those less fortunate—people and animals—whom she provided shelter, nourishment, and love. A Memorial service will be held on February 3, at 2:00 p.m. at the Glendale Seventh-day Adventist Church. Memorial contributions are welcomed at the Arizona Humane Society (azhumane.org).

CAVE CREEK – The Desert Foothills Chapter of the Arizona Archaeology Society is offering a free lecture opportunity with, James Snead PhD, who will be presenting “Obliterated Itineraries: The Archaeology of Roads, Paths, and Trails.” Movement is an essential aspect of human lives, yet one that leaves ambiguous traces in the archaeological record. In recent years, archaeologists have begun to systematically explore these faint signatures of travel as important elements of the cultural landscape of the past. From this evidence, we can better understand not only how movement took place, but who did it, how it was controlled, and what it meant from the perspectives of travelers. This lecture uses evidence for several related projects to discuss these ideas, and what they mean to our understanding of the past. Examples include Ancestral Pueblo and Chacoan paths/roads in New Mexico, and stone pathways built by the indigenous inhabitants of Micronesia. Together, they provide a fascinating

look at how archaeologists can “move through time,” often in the literal footsteps of those who went before. Snead’s current research includes the study of roads, paths, and trails in the archaeological record. His co-edited volume, “Landscapes of Movement,” was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2009. Initial work on this topic took place at Bandelier National Monument, in northern New Mexico. More recently, he has conducted fieldwork on the stone pathways of Yap, Micronesia. Other research interests include historical archaeology of the American West and the history of archaeology. New publications include a 2017 special issue of the journal Kiva on the archaeology of Chaco Roads (83:1), and The Original Jones Boys: Archaeologies of Race and Place in 19th Century America (World Archaeology, forthcoming). James E. Snead is Associate Professor of Anthropology at California State University, Northridge.

Awarded the Ph.D. at UCLA in 1994, he has held numerous fellowships and grants, including funding by the National Science Foundation, the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and a postdoctoral appointment at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The general public may attend an Arizona Archaeology Society – Desert Foothills Chapter for free, meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, September through May. There are refreshments available at 7:00 PM and the meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. The meetings are held in the community room (Maitland Hall) at The Good Shepard of the Hills Episcopal Church, 6502 East Cave Creek Road, Cave Creek, AZ 85331 (near the Dairy Queen).
