Anthem nixes Arroyo Norte deal MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR
The North Country Conservancy (NCC) has merged its mission, non-monetary assets, and preservation efforts with the Desert Foothills Land Trust (DFLT), bringing the resources of the two land trust groups together to protect the area’s wilderness. The deal, which has been in the making for some time, was completed earlier this month. NCC was founded more than a decade ago with the focus of preserving the State Trust lands known as Daisy Mountain. They have also worked to advance a trail system for the mountain to promote connectivity with the public. In updating NCC’s strategic plan, the board members saw an opportunity to merge with DFLT and voted unanimously to approve the plan of merger as the best way to build on their extensive efforts. “We believe Desert Foothills Land Trust will be the most appropriate steward of our efforts,” says NCC Chairman, Frank Grimmelmann. North Country Conservancy’s Executive Director, Ann Hutchinson, is joining the DFLT board of directors to promote continuity with the local community and efforts to protect Daisy Mountain. “We are pleased to be able to partner with leaders and supporters of North County Conservancy in order to continue their crucial land conservation efforts in the area” says DFLT executive director Sonia Perillo. Founded in 1991, the Desert Foothills Land Trust has worked to acquire and

A potential deal, which would have given Arroyo Norte residents an opportunity to pay for the right to use the Anthem Community Center for a $30 annual fee, was voted down by the Anthem Community Council by a 7-0 vote on Thursday. A crowd of approximately 300 turned out, mostly to voice their concerns for such a proposal.
In front of perhaps the biggest audience they have served in front of during their three year term on the Anthem Community Council board President Craig Boates and Jeff Pointer were part of a 7-0 vote against a proposed agreement with Arroyo Norte on Thursday in the final meeting for both men. Acknowledging they were overwhelmed with a flood of emails from Anthem residents, council member after council member said they would vote against the proposal, which would have given residents of Arroyo Norte, located on the frontage road between Anthem and New River, the ability to pay to utilize the Anthem Community Center’s workout
facility and pool. When built out the development will have approximately 300 homes. Proposed by Anthem staff as a potential revenue source and as a way to offset the wear and tear caused by the inevitable use of Anthem parks by their neighbors to the north, an estimated crowd of nearly 300 showed up to speak against the idea. After a one time application fee of $75 Arroyo Norte residents interested in using the Anthem Community Center facilities, would have been able to renew for a $30 annual fee. In exchange Anthem residents would have access to utilize hiking trails through Arroyo Norte. Rather than listen to the

Cave Creek resident given new lease on life STAFF REPORT
For Cave Creek resident Lloyd Beaman 2012 was perhaps the longest year of his life. That being said it also proved to be one that saved his life. On Saturday the 58-year-old will be in Phoenix with family and friends to celebrate what he calls his second chance at life, by participating in a fundraising event, called the Liver Life Walk. The event, which starts with registration at 8:30 a.m., brings awareness and financial support to the needs of millions of Americans who are battling more than 100 different types of liver disease. The ability to participate in the 5K is somewhat amazing for Beaman. In November 2011, Beaman who described himself as a healthy person, interested in weight training in his
free time, woke up feeling nauseous one day.

Cave Creek resident Lloyd Beaman and his wife Lyanne on a recent ride following his liver transplant in November 2012. On Saturday he will participate in the Liver Life Walk, a fundraiser in Phoenix.
After vomiting blood he said he felt much better, but his wife
called the Mayo Clinic Hospital and they urged him come in. “I went down there and they discovered I was hemorrhaging and that I’d lost 6.5 pints of blood,” he said. “ After spending four days in the ICU Beaman was released. “I stabilized for a time,” he said. “But I had to continue going back for regular visits to go through numerous checks.” After a time it became clear that his liver was failing. “My condition regressed so fast it was unbelievable,” he said. “I started losing muscle rapidly. I’d weighed as much as 258 pounds. These days I weigh 186 pounds. I started developing a heart issue and had to go on oxygen full time. The liver controls more things than I ever could have dreamed of.”

Cave Creek Councilman Dick Esser will not be on the ballot for the May 21 runoff election. Following the primary election incumbents Esser along with Shelley Anderson and James Bruce dropped out of the race. Within hours Esser had a change of heart and decided he wanted to run again. When Esser decided to rescind his withdrawal after approval from the town of Cave Creek, Gerald Freeman took him to court with a legal challenge. On April 2 a Maricopa County Superior Court judge ruled Esser ineligible to return to the race. Judge Lisa Daniel Flores stated in her ruling that there is no provision in state law for a candidate to be reinstated on
the ballot after withdrawing. “Arizona law does not permit (Esser) to rescind the valid withdrawal of his candidacy, and ... he is not entitled to have his name on the ballot as a candidate for Town Council in the May 21” runoff election, the ruling said. Esser did not respond to a request for comment. That means Thomas McGuire will be the lone incumbent left to challenge for the four remaining council seats. He will be challenged by Mike Durkin, Reg Monachino, Charlie Spritzer and Eileen Wright. All four candidates received more votes than McGuire in the primary. The May winners will join mayor Vincent Francia, vice major Ernie Bunch and Adam Trenk when the new council is seated in June.

The need for a transplant no longer could be ignored. As Thanksgiving neared in 2012 Beaman said he vividly remembers he and his wife, Lyanne talking about death arrangements. “I was concerned I wouldn’t make it through Christmas without a liver,” he said. “It was an amazing conversation. We laughed and cried together. We were faced that the end might be a real reality.” But with life seemingly slipping away Beaman received the phone call that changed

everything. “It was 2:17 a.m. in the morning,” he said of the call on Thanksgiving morning. “It was a blocked number so I didn’t answer it right away. Then we heard my wife’s cell phone ringing in another part of the house. When the phone rang a third time I answered and was told they had a liver for me and I needed to get to the hospital. I had to sit at the side of the bed for a minute to decide if it was real. I had some anxiety about surgery, but I was so happy.” Beaman said his experience with the staff at Mayo made him supremely confident the surgery would be a success. Submitted photo

I was ready to go.” As he had hoped the new liver is treating Beaman well. “Everything began to improve immediately,” he said. “It was insane how much better I felt just five days after surgery. Within four weeks I was off oxygen.” While he hasn’t been cleared to return to weight lifting Beaman said he has taken up yoga and said he is spending a lot of time walking, thinking about the opportunity he has been given. “I can’t explain how pleased I am to have a second chance at life and I’m going to live it to the best of my ability,” he said. “The people that helped me at the hospital have given me precious time and I want to do everything I can to show my appreciation.” Saturday’s event starts with registration from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. with the walk to follow at 10 a.m. at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix.

sexual predators, Cliff said. First becoming a nudist with his wife in 1999 when another couple introduced him to the idea, Cliff said he said he didn’t face that type of treatment from other members because he was introduced as a couple. At the same time, nudists struggle to show textiles, clothed people, that they are not sexually motivated to choose this lifestyle. Cliff said his favorite part about nudism is that one’s status goes away when they take their clothes off, noting he doesn’t care if you’re a banker, a lawyer, or a Supreme Court judge. Cliff’s wife Barbara, who was cooking dinner in their RV, said, “When the clothes come off, so do the trappings of society. When you have your clothes on, that person is a lawyer. When they are off, that person doesn’t have a job. “ Many nudists at Shangri La Ranch said they have become better people after adopting the lifestyle. Doris, a business owner, said she respects other people’s freedom a lot more. “People in glass houses should not throw stones,” she said, “We choose to be nudists; I’m not going to jump on someone else’s rights.” Cliff said nudism had changed his philosophy on life, noting the average age of people at Shangri La Ranch is 55. “It takes a long time to become a person,” Cliff said while drying off his Jeep, adding, “you have lived a while and you become more accepting of others and yourself.”

Anthem veteran named president of Arizona military post STAFF REPORT
Colonel Rob Welch, U. S. Army, retired, and an Anthem resident has been elected to serve as president of the Arizona Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA). The chapter, based in Scottsdale, was organized in 1956 and is the oldest MOAA chapter in Arizona. MOAA is active both locally and in Washington, DC, advocating for and assisting veterans and their families. Among many other activities, the chapter supports the annual Arizona StandDown® which aids homeless veterans and is the largest such event in the nation. The StandDown® provides health care, clothing, housing assistance, judicial assistance and many other services needed
council from page 1 litany of residents that signed slips to speak on the issue a preemptive Boates first opened up the floor to the board. Pointer suggested that while the vast majority of the responses were thought out and helpful he didn’t appreciate ones from 10 to 15 percent of people who made personal attacks. One by one they relayed the responses they had received from residents and let it be known they would be voting against the proposal. Anthem residents suggested that the amenities are one of the main draws for people buying in Anthem. They seemed to ask the equivalent of why buy the cow when you can get the milk for (nearly) free, surmising their home values could be sacrificed when compared to Arroyo Norte, which could become a more desirable location for potential home buyers with newer homes than the ones in Anthem, combined with the ability to use Anthem’s amenities. After the 7-0 vote a good portion of the satisfied audience got up and left. The meeting also included the board’s decision to concentrate enhancement funds on three projects. If all five projects under consideration were pursued to their full scale it was estimated Anthem residents would have seen a raise in their dues of $56 annually. On the combined recommendations of the fiscal committee and the community planning and development committee the board
unanimously voted to pursue funding of phase one and phase 2 at Opportunity Way Park, phase one at Liberty Bell Park, as well as what were deemed critically important safety improvements to the Anthem Amphitheater including better lighting and stairs. The committee will report back in either June or July for a proposed schedule for the projects and an estimated use of enhancement funds. It was noted that projects not selected are not dead in the water, but simply are not going to be pursued at the present time. The last update of the night
gave a look at the design concept for the overhaul of 3701 W. Anthem Way The board chose between two designs, both of which could be accomplished for the budgeted $1.3 million. The tentative schedule for the building overhaul would see Anthem seek permitting in May, begin construction in July and complete construction in either November or December, in time for the grand opening in January. The next Anthem Community Council meeting is set for 6:30 p.m., April 24 at the Anthem Community Center.

softball from page 11 After 7-1 and 6-2 defeats at the hands of the Toros in February the Jaguars fell 8-2 in their third meeting. “All the girls have grown as players,” Taylor said. “I like the effort, but we’re making mistakes that hurt us at times. I’d rather we go for it though. If we’re diving for balls and being aggressive I can live with mistakes.” On Thursday Kaff, who has accepted a scholarship offer from Michigan State, proved the biggest obstacle. The right hander, who struck out 16, had a perfect game through 3 2/3 innings. “Chances are you’re going to face tough pitchers like that in the state tournament so we’re going to have to figure it out,” Taylor said. After striking eight out of the first nine batters, Kaff finally was met with some resistance from the Jaguars offense in the bottom of the fourth. Trailing 5-0, the Anthem squad put together a two-out rally. After freshman Brianna Binns reached on an error, to end the perfect game, sophomore Brice Phebus drew a walk to bring catcher Aubrey Ledbetter to the plate. The sophomore ripped a pitch just inside the third base bag into the corner in left field. Along with breaking up the no hitter she erased the shutout and momentarily got her team back within striking distance at 5-2. Mountain View was unfazed though, responding with one in the fifth and two in the sixth to win going away. After seeing her team only come up with two hits Taylor acknowledged her team will have to be at its best down the

stretch of the regular season if they are to earn a state berth. On Friday they bounced back with a 12-2 win over Ironwood. With 10 games remaining the Jaguars (12-10) sit at No. 22 in the Division I power rankings. The top 24 teams make the Division I playoffs. “We’re going to need a strong finish,” she said. “Obviously Mountain Ridge is a great team. They’ll be really tough, but a lot of those other games are very winnable if we come ready.” The Jaguars upcoming schedule includes a trip to Sandra Day O’Connor to face the Eagles on Thursday, a home game with North Canyon on Friday before a trip to Ironwood on Monday and a visit to Mountain Ridge on Tuesday.

Boulder Creek selects new basketball coach MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR
Coaching is in Ryne Holstrom’s blood. The 26-year old said he grew up in the gym shooting baskets while watching teams coached both by his grandfather and then his father. Despite a football career at Northern Arizona University, one in which he started his final three seasons at tackle on the Jaguars offensive line, he said his first love was always basketball. “I would have chosen basketball over football to play in college, but at 6-foot-6 and 315 pounds my opportunity to get college paid for was on the football field. I fell in love with football at NAU and enjoyed
my time, but I always figured I’d coach basketball at some point.” On April 3 Holstrom received word that he will be the next boys basketball coach at Boulder Creek High School, replacing Randy Walker who stepped down at the end of the 2012-2013 season. During a five-year tenure Walker led the Jaguars to four state tournament appearances including a state championship during the 20092010 season. “I’m ecstatic to be able to come in to a well established program,” the Portland, Oregon native said. “I’m looking forward to getting in and starting to work. I like to play an aggressive style where our defense creates offense. I want to dictate the pace for opposing offenses. I try to work on the

competitive spirit of my players. They’ll be ready to fight for 32 minutes.” The 2010 Lumberjacks graduate said he tried to exhibit that never say die attitude as a player. He said one of the most individually satisfying moments of his NAU career came in a road game at Northern Colorado his junior season. “Our quarterback threw an interception down near the end zone,” he said. “I was a big guy, but I remember hearing stuff about pursuit angles and I started after the guy that made the interception. Down toward the other end of the field our quarterback slowed him up enough that I was able to make a touchdown saving tackle. It was probably 70 yards down the field. They had a penalty on the
very next play and ended the drive by missing a field goal. We ended up winning that one (2522). I was never the best athlete on any team I played on, but I always tried to be one of the hardest working players.” After his days at NAU Holstrom said he attempted to make a bid at an NFL career, but after stints in the Arena Football League with the Philadelphia Soul and Kansas City, the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League his final bid to stick in professional football saw him cut by the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League. “It was a little bit sad, but I wasn’t consistent enough,” he said. “My body had been through enough so it was very easy for me to step away at that point.”

After initially moving back to Portland where he got to work pursuing coaching and teaching, actually working at a rival school from his days as a prep star, Holstrom and his wife Grace returned to Arizona. Moving to Eloy, Holstrom accepted his first head coaching job at Santa Cruz Valley High School. Inheriting a program that had gone winless during the 2010-2011 season, Holstrom led the Division III program to a 4-18 season. While he wasn’t the most experienced candidate of the eight the Jaguars interviewed for the position, Boulder Creek athletic director Matt Hreha said he and the selection committee couldn’t help but take note of Holstrom’s passion. “I think his enthusiasm impressed us,” he said. “I think how articulate he was in laying out a plan for improving the program was impressive. He has ideas for getting the feeder schools involved. He said he wants to compete for state championships year in and year out.” Beyond the efforts in the gym Hreha liked the feedback he got about the impact his new coach has on his student-athletes. “His athletic director at each of the last two schools he has been at had glowing reviews of him,” he said. “At Santa Cruz they had a serious problem in recent seasons with players being academically ineligible, but in his season leading the program he pretty much eliminated that issue.” Moving to Anthem was also a motivating factor. “My wife’s parents live off the Carefree Highway and we’re looking to raise a family,” he said. “Anthem is a beautiful area and I really haven’t heard anything but positives about the community.” Whether there is a teaching job available at Boulder Creek High School for the 2013-2014 school year or whether he’ll have to take a job somewhere else in the district Holstrom is looking forward to getting started. “I always was a gym rat in high school,” he said. “With the football background I know the importance of strength and conditioning too. I like to lift and run with my players. I think it’s easier to work when you have a coach that’s putting in the time with you. I’m not going to be able to do it forever, but I will run and lift with them. Because I’m young I think I can relate to the kids and understand where they’re coming from. We’ll do things the right way by stressing academics and hard work.”

Anthem Prep coach hosts football camp STAFF REPORT
The 9th annual Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp is under way. Anthem Prep football coach Mark Huston invites youth, ages 6 – 18, to turn out from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m., every Saturday at Anthem Community Park. The one-time Northern Arizona University quarterback promises a challenging and productive experience throughout the months of April, May, June and July. Huston sets the camp up to mimic workouts used by athletes at the higher levels, with a series of 12 stations focusing on developing different skills in a fast-paced environment. He touts a 10 to 1 ratio of athletes to coaches, allowing for personalized instruction. The camp is designed for athletes of any level. Along with a number of experienced youth coaches,
campers also receive instruction from graduates of the camp, many of whom are current Boulder Creek High School football players. Huston said looking ahead to the 2013-14 school year there will be close to 50 former Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp attendees playing for the Boulder Creek varsity, junior varsity and freshman teams.

Cave Creek candidate bids to preserve rural lifestyle
Cave Creek was a frontier town. The date is July 8, 1986, and, on that date, Cave Creek achieved her independence. The spirit of Cave Creek was preserved for the future. I am running for Town Council to preserve and protect the spirit of Cave Creek, past, present and future. I want to continue the legacy given to us by these pioneers. Unfortunately, Cave Creek is fast losing its brand as a “frontier town.” The upcoming hot and wild Cave Creek Town Council runoff election will determine the destiny of our town. The elected Council will sit for 3½ years and will adopt a new General Plan for Cave Creek. The incumbents lack leadership, accountability, and transparency. It has been a hands-off, rubber stamp Council for several years. The spirit of Cave Creek and our unique rural lifestyle are in jeopardy. In the last year alone, we have had to fight three major battles to save our town – two rezonings of residential land to
commercial and a property tax. Due to a $60 million debt, it is inevitable that we will continue to face the threats of commercial development. The incumbents are willing to sacrifice the spirit of Cave Creek and our lifestyle for revenue – rezoning residential land to commercial. Without a change in Council, what will remain of Cave Creek – the Cave Creek Museum and the Cave Creek Cemetery? Not if I can help it. My pledge to the citizens of Cave Creek, I will: • Hold fast to the General Plan • Preserve our unique rural lifestyle • Protect Desert Rural zoning • Never place commercialism in the path of your horses or homes Put me on the Council so I can do this job.

Carefree doctor suggests diet alterations to prevent cancer This year, an estimated half a million Americans will lose their lives to cancer. Today, with new technologies providing advancements in the treatment of cancer each day, more lives are being saved than ever. However, there are several things we can do to defend against cancer in the first place. This April – National Cancer Control Month – is the perfect time to educate oneself on them. The most obvious advice to reduce your risk includes upping cardiovascular exercise, quitting smoking and limiting both alcohol and sun exposure. However, have you considered thinking outside the box when considering what to put inside your body when it comes to proactive cancer prevention? As someone who’s lost his father and two brothers to this disease, the connection between nutrition and cancer prevention is a topic near and to my heart. As such, here are some lesser-known suggestions to reduce your risk – all focused on converting your colon into a cancer-fighting machine:
• Convert to a low saturated fat diet, which can change how much liver bile is delivered to the colon. This, in turn, reduces the concentration of bad, cancer-inducing bacteria growth. • Take a prebiotic supplement like Prebiotin, developed right in Carefree and available at most health food stores like Cooper’s Nutrition, which feed good bacteria in the colon, allowing good to outnumber bad. • Take broccoli sprout capsules, which are notoriously high in sulforaphane (SFN), the strongest cancer-fighting agent found in food. When you – or someone you love – get a diagnosis of cancer, it is like a punch in the face. Starting today, let’s punch cancer back! Frank W. Jackson, M.D. is a Carefree resident and colon health educator with more than 40 years of research on the colon’s link to obesity, cancer, heart disease, GIrelated diseases and more. www. jacksogi.com.
Stop Asking, ‘How Did You Like ...’ I’m shopping for a sweater online, and as so often happens, up pops a “tell us what you think” box. Or I’m on social media, and another social media company hijacks the screen, trying to sell me another product. Then there’s: “How did you like the app?” “Tweet about us.” “Leave a review.” This does three things: It diverts my attention from the task at hand, it steals my time, and it annoys the hell out of me. Go away. Stop harassing me. You’re panhandling for information. I often use the Open Table app to make a restaurant reservation. The morning after, my inbox will inevitably hold a demand/request that I review the restaurant: “How did you like the meal?” My first childlike response is to wonder why I’m being asked. If I liked the meal, I’ll go back. If I didn’t, I won’t. Now I understand what is wanted. I’m being asked to enhance the site’s value without being paid for my labor. This is the business model underlying the Yelp-y world of amateur reviews. And it’s not always a nice business. Very busy people don’t review a restaurant unless they’re very busy owning it or very busy running a competing establishment. (To outsiders giving your honest all: Why do you do it?)
In olden days, a professional restaurant reviewer — and some still exist — had a name and reputation attached to the opinion. I might disagree with a reviewer’s priorities, but I knew where that person was coming from. And I could reasonably assume that he or she had no economic interest in the business being measured. Moving on, don’t you marvel at being asked why you unsubscribed from an email list? That happened after I unsubscribed from Fandango’s “FanMail.” The reason, which I’ll share only with you, is that Fandango kept sending messages about movies I would not see if lightning destroyed my cable box and Netflix burned down. In truth, I don’t recall signing up for FanMail, though chances are that I did so in an inattentive moment. Anyhow, after clicking “unsubscribe,” up came, “Help us improve your FanMail.” Yeah, in my next life. I once used Teleflora to send Mother’s Day flowers and got trapped in some exotically crafted email dungeon. Some sites keep you permanently imprisoned unless you redo your email preferences. I tried this on Teleflora, but to no avail. Small print on the bottom of the pest message: “This is a one time only email message to thank you for
your business, so there’s no unsubscribe option.” Forgive my presumption. Perhaps after a glass too many, I had asked to receive “special offers.” If so, I accept my punishment. But, your honor, I did not deserve a life sentence. Teleflora recently sent an email with this subject: “Get 25 percent off when you write a review.” If I do, please lock me up. Some of you may be thinking: What’s her problem? Doesn’t she know how to filter email messages? To answer, she does know how, but that’s not the point. The point is that these are vendors I’ve sort-of invited into my life. I’ve created accounts with them. They should respect my time and intelligence and not bombard me with phonyfriendly social-media talk about wanting to know what I think about this or that. Some computer wants to know so that its human master can monetize my free labor and use the proceeds to buy a vineyard in Sonoma. I respect that aspiration. But as they say, time is money, and some of us don’t work for free.
