North valley residents team up to help hurricane victims ANTHEM – Thousands of people have been displaced by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, and around the country, organizations and individuals are doing whatever they can to help. Truckloads of goods to donate to hurricane victims were collected in Anthem and the surrounding area last week, and a team drove to Texas over the weekend and delivered the donations. Frank Marquez spearheaded the local donation plan, working to coordinate getting as much help as possible to the relief effort. Marquez, who is Operations Manager for a local business owned by Tim Fyke, asked for a truck to drive to the Houston area so he could

Holiday traffic impacted by multiple crashes

NORTH VALLEY – For many Valley residents who traveled north this past Labor Day weekend, the long weekend included long traffic delays on the I-17. Multiple crashes happened over the weekend, including an accident on Sunday morning that caused serious injuries, necessitating a helicopter evac.

Traffic on northbound and southbound I-17 was heavy and at times completely stopped several times throughout the long weekend. The Arizona Department of Transportation issued frequent Twitter updates, warning travelers of heavy traffic and advising of road closures and delays.

Anthem teen appointed to Governor’s Youth Commission, will chair Distracted Driving Committee ELIZABETH MEDORA STAFF

ANTHEM – Anthem teen Brenden Castellanos is serving his second term on the Arizona Governor’s Youth Commission, and this term, he’s chairing the Distracted Driving Committee. Through this committee, Brenden and his team are working to raise awareness of the problem of distracted driving and work with multiple agencies to combat this ongoing issue. “I am focusing on distracted driving because it is a huge epidemic in the state of Arizona

particularly which only seems to be getting worse,” Brenden said in an email interview. “When I saw that Phoenix suffers nearly as many traffic deaths from running red-lights as Houston and even more than Los Angeles, two cities which are much larger than Phoenix, I realized that a great deal of these tragedies can be attributed to distracted driving. Additionally, in a state which is notorious for wrong-way drivers, I believe that bringing an end to distracted driving plays the largest role in preventing future tragedies.”

Pictured: Brenden Castellanos

“Some things that we plan on to help combat the problem of distracted driving include launching anti-distracted driving campaigns at Arizona schools, partnering with ADOT to spread awareness of the issue as a whole, getting in contact with various organizations which work to lobby for anti-distracted driving legislation, and maybe even creating a PSA or a set of PSAs,” Brenden continued. The Arizona Governor’s Youth Commission is comprised of teens from all over the state. Each member is focused on goals

that help make Arizona a safer, better place to live. After his school counselor emailed him about the Youth Commission, Brenden was inspired to join; having already served on the Anthem Youth Advisory Council, Brenden was ready to take on the challenge of the statewide Youth Commission. “I believe that it is essential that the youth partake in their own campaigns to curtail

Fyke discussed what could be done to help and reached out to community managers with whom they work, as well as their team, to see if they could help. The response was immediate – everyone started chipping in, with donations of money, needed goods, and time. The Fyke family promoted the drive through social media, and the community response took off. The family stored collected donations in their garage in their Anthem home. Donations began arriving immediately, and by the second day, Fyke said, just in Anthem, “I don’t think we went more than 20 minutes during the day on Thursday in which someone wasn’t coming by with a donation. It was amazing.” Everyone gave what they could, and donations of bottled water, non-perishable food, toiletries, diapers, baby formula, pet items, and more were collected. One company delivered three box trucks’ worth of goods for donation. Marquez’ wife worked tirelessly to coordinate the trip, Fyke noted. She used multiple sources to determine what routes would be available, where the convoy could stop for gas, and who was in the most need of donations at that time. As the donations grew, so did the need

for more vehicles to make the trip; a local company donated another trailer, and a truck was rented for the journey. Fyke said that over 60 people volunteered to help sort the goods and pack them in the trailers and truck for delivery. The driving team left for Houston at 1 a.m. on Saturday morning. The main location planned for drop-off was unable to take donations, and the team moved on to their backup location, a “Mattress Mack” furniture store. This store opened its doors to those in need of food and shelter, turning the furniture store into a shelter for storm victims. NPR noted in an Aug. 29 article that Mattress Mack owner Jim McIngvale told NPR them that the stores were

Search continues for suspects in Bartlett Lake accident NORTH VALLEY – Two suspects are being sought in a Bartlett Lake accident that seriously injured a teenager. The Aug. 5 head-on boating accident left a 15-year-old watercraft rider with severe injuries. The occupants of the speedboat involved in the crash left the scene, and the Maricopa County Sheriff ’s Department is continuing to search for them. The reward for information in the case has been increased to $5,000, and Silent Witness is also offering a $1,000 reward for information, according to a Sept. 1 news update from MCSO. MCSO Sergeant Joaquin Enriquez said via email that there were no updates in the case currently, but that MCSO is still working leads that have come in from the public and the case remains an open investigation. Further information from the public is welcomed; those with information can call MCSO Detective R. Marske via Crime Stop at (602) 876-1011. Witnesses who were at the scene of the crash have provided descriptions of the boat and occupants involved in

the Aug. 5 crash. MCSO has provided a compilation of those descriptions. One occupant is described as a 30-yearold white man, approximately 5’7” and 190 lbs., with a stocky build and a buzz haircut and trimmed goatee. The female boat occupant is said to be in her mid-20s, with a medium build, light complexion, and long, dark hair. The boat involved in the accident, according to witnesses’ accounts, is an approximately 18’ fishing style design. The make and model are not known at this time. Further description details include the boat likely has a light grey lower half with a dark -colored upper half, black lettering on the side, and a black outboard motor. The boat has one windshield, on the driver’s side only, and the back deck area is grey carpeted. The boat also has a white Bimini/canopy top. MCSO also noted in the most recent release that the boat likely has damage to the front passenger side. Anyone with information in this case is asked to call MCSO at (602) 876-1011.

How was your Labor Day? Mine was pretty good because I didn’t lift a finger. No work, cooking, or cleaning. Let’s face it, Labor Day requires that we, the working blokes, rest and relax. Even if you are retired, you can feel proud of all those hours you logged in and celebrate by doing nothing. I love this holiday! Originated over a hundred years ago, it is one of the few national holidays that was created for no man, war or religion, but for the common working stiff – you and me. Maybe Labor Day is an American holiday that celebrates the very thing that Americans do best. We work hard! Other countries take longer vacations, shorter work weeks, and see nothing wrong with closing up shops for months at a time! Germany has invoked a law that an employer cannot contact an employee about any job-related issues after 6 p.m. and never on weekends! I am not making this up. Some people in foreign

countries are actually pampered. Feeling stressed? In France, you might get to go to a ten-day spa in order to rejuvenate. Tax dollars pay for this. Hmm, so very un-American. Most folks think that Labor Day has lost its true meaning. It has become just another shallow three-day weekend and an excuse for more retail sales. Over the years, Labor Day has been about anything but labor and to most represents the end of summer, start of football, beginning of school, and one last barbecue. Gone are the days of large parades honoring the “working people” who would march around town squares proudly displaying banners of their respective jobs and trades. When Labor Day originated, it was to recognize the backbreaking work, long hours, and measly wages that many Americans put up with just to survive. The working conditions were pretty rough for the labor force who were out there digging ditches, building bridges, railways, schools, and roads. Labor Day was created in honor of the American workforce who built this country’s infrastructure. Yes, we Americans like to shop, have three-day weekends, and enjoy one last blast to “honor” the end of summer. That’s okay. We still deserve a shout out from our employers or government in the form of

a paid day off that basically says “thanks” for the difficult, boring, mundane, thrilling, and/or important work that we all do. Labor Day also signified the absolute cut-off for wearing white shoes or pants. Of course, fashion has changed and now it doesn’t seem to matter. Well, maybe it does if you live back East. Come to think of it, I don’t see many people wearing white shoes unless they are tennis shoes. The real pleasure of Labor Day is that it ushers in autumn, with the promise of cooler days, longer nights, fewer weeds to cut, and no more dust storms. I don’t care if I ever see another haboob! Bring on Fall! Hope your Labor Day was completely relaxing. Psychologists claim that a “good, long weekend” can have lingering positive health benefits for about a month or two. Maybe until the next long weekend we can all feel refreshed. Oh, and go ahead, keep wearing white and dare to do nothing every now and then. It is good for the body and soul. But please don’t think about all the hours you have toiled in your life since that could be upsetting. Dear Readers, hopefully you can enjoy the “fruits of your labor” all year long!

Judge Williams’ Column

Judge Works to Improve Garnishments

JUDGE GERALD A. WILLIAMS NORTH VALLEY JUSTICE OF THE PEACE

Some recent proposed changes to a garnishment form should make it easier for people who are representing themselves to understand what will actually happen at their garnishment hearing. After a plaintiff wins their lawsuit and obtains a judgment, often the best way for the plaintiff to actually get paid is to garnish the defendant’s salary. A court will not automatically start this process. The plaintiff, now known as the judgment creditor, must file additional paperwork. The amount that can be taken from someone’s paycheck is up to 25 percent of their nonexempt weekly earnings. The defendant’s employer will

withhold that amount from the defendant’s take home pay and will be ordered to instead give it to the plaintiff. If the amount being withheld triggers a hardship, then the defendant can request a hearing and ask a judge to reduce the amount being withheld to 15 percent. But here is where the process breaks down. The current hearing request form is very misleading because it contains a line reading, “The judgment creditor does not have a valid judgment against me because” and then contains some blank lines where the defendant can write anything they want. The problem is that even though the form strongly infers otherwise, a defendant cannot challenge the judgment at the garnishment hearing. If the defendant believes that there was not a factual basis for the judgment, then they should either appeal it or file a motion for reconsideration. If the defendant believes that the service was improper, then they should file a motion to set aside. However, none of these things will likely be discussed in detail

at the garnishment hearing. I have sought and received feedback from other judges and from Superior Court Commissioners and have written a new garnishment form. I recently presented it and it was adopted by the Committee on Limited Jurisdiction Courts. There are additional approval authorities that must agree before the improved form will be adopted, but I am optimistic that we are on the correct path. While this may seem like a great deal of effort to change an admittedly dull court form, few things are as significant as making sure that people representing themselves in our court system have the opportunity to succeed. People can be excused for feeling the predictable frustration that is generated when they show up thinking that a court hearing is for one purpose only to discover that it is for another. If I can help change that, it is a win for everyone. Judge Williams is the Justice of the Peace for the North Valley Justice Court. His column appears monthly in The Foothills Focus.

Conservation groups to continue Sonoran bald eagle protections KIANNA GARDNER CRONKITE NEWS

PHOENIX – Local conservation and environmental organizations plan to expand efforts to protect and grow Sonoran bald eagle populations after a federal court decision to deny the birds a spot on the endangered species list. “We are for the most part on our own here in Arizona which is part of the reason we put so much effort into growing the populations,” said Kenneth Jacobson, raptor management coordinator for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. “We want to continue seeing them on our lands.” Characteristics unique to the Sonoran eagles, such as nesting and breeding habits, are not “ecologically or biologically significant for the bald eagle” to be declared endangered, according to a ruling from a panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The ruling last week agreed with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that the desert eagles were no different than other bald eagles, disputing a claim by the Center for Biological Diversity that Sonoran eagles are unique to the desert.

When the eagles first made the endangered species list in 1967, there were less than a dozen Sonoran bald eagle breeding areas in Arizona, Jacobson said. But efforts by local organizations sparked an increase every decade in Arizona, even after desert eagles were removed from the list in 2007. Today, there are more than 80 breeding areas. Jacobson, who also chairs the Southwest Bald Eagle Management Committee, a monitoring group, credits the gradual increase to the ongoing work of local organizations. “The listing of the eagles originally really helped put the focus on bald eagle management in Arizona and helped to create those needed partnerships,” Jacobson said. Nearly 40 years ago, the Arizona Bald Eagle Birdwatch Program began closely monitoring the eagle’s breeding and nesting habits. Observers, in teams of two, were sent out to various locations. More recently, Liberty Wildlife, a rehabilitation center has worked with Game and Fish to set up a 24-hour bald-eagle rescue service.

Caroline Suits, who coordinates volunteers for the center, said it is estimated handle more than 7,000 animals by the end of the year. So far, 90 bald eagles have been submitted for rehabilitation services. Sheri Williamson, director and naturalist for the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory, said the desert eagles will require extra protection as Arizona continues to battle drought. “We are in a dry state that is becoming more dry every year, so the eagles need all the help they can get,” Williamson said. Sonoran eagles tend to nest and breed near streams and other bodies of water where fish are plentiful. The National Audubon Society and other environmental groups need to monitor those areas closely to make sure vegetation and water sources are available to the birds, said Tice Supplee, director of bird conservation for Audubon Arizona. One out of three breeding sites are recreational areas, drawing people during the eagles’ vulnerable breeding and nesting seasons. Human interaction can cause eagles to abandon their nests, leaving behind eggs or fledglings. Management teams will conduct seasonal closures to the public in order to increase successful breeding and nesting, Jacobson said. “Even without the strong teeth of the endangered species act, the eagles are still occupying more habitat each year and the delisting hasn’t resulted in a reversal in their recovery,” Supplee said. Supplee said limited government involvement in building and maintaining the bald eagle population means local organizations are key to the eagles’ continued survival. “It’s disappointing that we can’t give them that extra protection that they deserve considering they are the symbol of our nation and a symbol of our great conservation efforts,” Williamson said. “We really need these organizations to continue stepping up.”

negative behavior and contribute to the betterment of society,” Brenden said. “Additionally, I am and always have been very interested in the inner workings of all levels of government whether it be at the federal, state, or local level and I was extremely interested in the various opportunities which the Governor’s Youth Commission could offer.” Brenden said he is aiming to increase the connection between youth and their communities through his volunteer work. “By creating a better environment for all, I intend to make the youth more aware of their ability to bring about change in even the smallest ways possible,” he noted. “The Governor’s Youth Commission as a whole focuses on tackling the issues of substance abuse, teen dating violence, civics education, bullying, and distracted driving. Our goal at large is to inspire the youth to become passionate about the issues they feel are most important and empower them as individuals to make a difference in their schools and communities.” Dawn Castellanos, Brenden’s mother, emphasized how proud she and her husband are of Brenden and his dedication to serving the community. Dawn noted that her son has always

shown an interest in geography, history, politics, and travel. “In addition, the leaders of the Anthem Youth Advisory Council and Governor’s Youth Commission were a huge influence as well,” Dawn said, noting that those who run these organizations “lead by example giving countless hours of their time to inspire the youth leaders to give back to the community and be the voices to propel change.” Dawn added that Brenden “enjoys being with like minded teens who can accept other’s opinions and work together in solving issues regardless of party lines for the greater good of our community, state, country, and world...humanity as a whole!” Brenden’s future plans are to graduate in the top five percent of his class and go on to study law at the University of Arizona, minoring in political science and Spanish. “My long term aspiration is to eventually become an elected official at either the state or federal level,” Brenden said. “On a personal level, I would love to travel the world and attain full fluency in Spanish. At the end of the day, my greatest goal of all is to be a productive citizen of the world.” Visit http://beseenbeheard.az.gov to find out more about the Governor’s Youth Commission and show your support for Brenden and other members who are working to improve the world around them.

NORTH VALLEY – OSR Physical Therapy donated 706 cases of bottled water, totaling 16,944 bottles, during this summer’s water drive. Donated water will assist the St. Mary’s Food Bank and the Salvation Army through their cooperation with the Phoenix Heat Relief Network, which will help the homeless and home-bound, as well as assisting in disaster relief efforts.

This first annual OSR water drive ran July 15-Aug. 31. For each new patient referral, OSR donated a case of water. Scott Foreman, VP Public Relations at OSR, said they plan on holding this water drive every summer. “Our goal was 500 cases of water so we feel good that we exceeded that amount by 206 cases,” Foreman said. The summer heat can easily be deadly, and dehydration is a large factor in this.

OSR distributed fliers detailing the dangers of dehydration and sharing information about how water donations would help the community. “The response from both office staff and patients, has been one of appreciation to learn about the plight of the underserved here in the Valley and the related statistics and that this water will help meet those needs,” Foreman said.

Sonoran Arts League gearing up for this year’s Hidden in the Hills

Beth Hyatt photo

Pictured is Carlos Page with the featured artwork for the Hidden in the Hills directory front cover.

CAVE CREEK – Arizona’s largest and longest-running artist studio tour and sale, Hidden in the Hills, will take place during the last two weekends of November, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Nov. 17-19 and Nov. 24-26. A signature event of the non-profit Sonoran Arts League, Hidden in

the Hills features 174 artists in 44 studio locations throughout Cave Creek, Carefree, and north Scottsdale. Now in its 21st year, the free, self-guided studio tour offers seasoned collectors and art enthusiasts a chance to observe artists at work in their private studios, which are open to the

public from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. during the six-day tour. Each studio has one or more guest artists who also display and sell their work. All HITH artists are Sonoran Arts League members, and several will be coming from different parts of the state to participate in the annual event. Many guest artists also set up to demonstrate. Known for including both nationally-recognized and emerging artists, Hidden in the Hills attracts thousands of patrons who appreciate fine art and seek a variety of mediums, styles and price ranges. With the event taking place the weekends before and after Thanksgiving, the art tour also attracts holiday shoppers who want to find an original, unique gift. A staple of the Hidden in the Hills event has been the fourcolor, glossy artist directory, which includes a comprehensive listing of participating artists with an image of their art, a large, easy-to-read map of the studios, and advertisements from participating artists and community art partners. In May, participating artists were invited to submit original pieces for consideration of the artist directory cover during a selection process. More than 80 pieces of art were submitted, and the committee chose a striking, contemporary piece by Cave Creek artist Carlos Page to be the featured artwork on the directory cover. The untitled wall sculpture stands 59 inches tall, and it is 24 inches wide by

seven inches deep. Modern in style, it is made of steel and a 200-year-old wood beam that Page reclaimed from a building in New York City. “Choosing a featured cover artist was not easy, as there were so many terrific entries this year, but in the end, we were all drawn to Carlos’ stunning design and abstract form,” said HITH marketing chair Carole Perry, a glass artist who has opened her studio to patrons for all 21 years of the tour. “Carlos is a brilliant artist and a true visionary. He has an outstanding body of work, which patrons will have a chance to see at his host studio, along with the works of his guest artists, painter Michael McKee, jeweler Rollande Poirier and ceramist Myron Whitaker.” Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Page traveled extensively before settling in the United States in 1989 to pursue the study of fine art. After an apprenticeship at a metal-works studio in San Francisco, he moved to New York City and graduated from a special honors program at Hunter College. At Hunter, Page focused on contemporary design and

sculpture, creating functional and abstract pieces made with steel, concrete and wood. In 2001, Page opened his first sculpture studio in Hoboken, New Jersey, just across the river from Manhattan. In 2014, he moved his studio to Cave Creek, where he works presently. A grand part of Page’s inspiration has always come from the energy of the people and the places that he has encountered. His work reflects on the balance between the raw power of nature and the sophistication of the human experience. Page said he is honored to have his work featured on the cover of the HITH artist directory. “I am thrilled to have been chosen for this year’s directory cover. I hope my sculpture resonates with people, no matter what their background. It’s a strong, rustic piece that blends my love of nature with my passion for architecture,” Page said. The Sonoran Arts League will begin selling the 21st Annual Hidden in the Hills artist directories in October. For more information, call (480) 575-6624, or visit www.HiddenInTheHills.org.

Unexpected Inspiration SHEA STANFIELD ARTS COLUMNIST

“Be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, don’t make assumptions, and always do your best” is a guide to a full and balanced life, according to Don Miguel Ruiz, in his book “The Four Agreements.” Local artist Kevin Blair Moore can attest to the value of following your own truth in discovering and developing a life filled with creative expression and peace. Born and raised in southwest Detroit, Michigan, Kevin remembers his mom working 60hour weeks to raise four children in a very rough neighborhood. Regardless of the challenges, she was determined to create a warm and inviting space for the family. Refinished secondhand furniture filled the modest space with quiet elegance, opera formed the musical backdrop for her solos on cleaning day, while magnificently rendered paintings of faraway places surrounded the occupants with future possibilities. Kevin’s mom also crafted pottery that served a variety of purposes in her household, as well as thoughtful gifts for family and friends. Yes, she was the first true inspiration in art of living a creative, generous, and full life. Growing up in this environment set the stage for

Kevin attaining degrees in Business and Interior Design from the American Institute for Interior Design in Fountain Hills, AZ. During this time, he fine-tuned his own creative sense in interior design by delving deeply into the ever-fascinating study of art history. To reinforce the knowledge he had gained, Kevin hoisted on a backpack and took off to see the real thing with a two-month trip through Europe for his humanities studies. Returning to the States, Kevin then stepped off into a 25-year career in the retail sector, where he rose to the position of Vice President for Geoffrey Beene clothing. Yet, with the yearning for less corporation and more creation, Kevin stepped out of the pressure cooker of high end design and went back to school to retool and refresh. But Kevin’s life was about to take an unexpected turn. Three years ago, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, resulting in an assault that left him with hearing loss in one ear, tinnitus, short term memory challenges, and a number of scars. If that was not enough to sidetrack him, in October 2016, Kevin suffered a health crisis when he was diagnosed with a bone degeneration condition that he describes as, “It put me in a wheelchair, boarding a plane for Detroit, to say goodbye to

his two brothers, who are my best friends.” What Kevin didn’t know at the time was that he was not finished yet! To the surprise of everyone around him, Kevin slowly began to recover. Through the reconstruction process, Kevin learned to paint as part of his healing. Although trained in design, painting on a canvas presented new challenges with the manipulation of the paints on flat surfaces, but Kevin found the entire process calming and healing, as well as thought provoking. Ultimately, according to Kevin, painting is his Xanax! He considers each day as full of opportunity and possibility to create beauty that others can enjoy. Presently, Kevin enjoys participating in the Roosevelt Row Artwalks, in downtown Phoenix, where he enjoys meeting his clients and potential clients and sharing their joy in the creative experience. Kevin is also a featured artist at Storm Wisdom in Phoenix, www. stormwisdom.com. Storm Wisdom’s displays allows clients the experience of “being” with Kevin Blair Moore’s art, honestly stunning. Kevin also maintains his webstore, The Edge Art Studio, at www. theedgeartstudio.com. There you may see a wide variety of pieces and acquire a sense of Kevin’s unique design and creative sensibility. His contact information is available on the site for questions or to purchase or commission a piece. As Kevin has illustrated, a life of honesty, generosity with others as well as yourself, not taking anything personally, and always doing your best, ultimately nurtures the spirit of the collective “whole.” Contact Arts Columnist Shea Stanfield at flowingquill@ yahoo.com.

Guiding tomorrow’s leaders: Local Girl Scouts troops seeking volunteers ELIZABETH MEDORA STAFF

CAVE CREEK – “Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader” – this Girl Scouts tagline invites girls around the world to unleash their potential. Locally, thousands of girls have joined Girl Scouts, and many more want to join. Volunteers are needed to help form new Scout troops and give more girls the opportunity to get involved. Heather Thornton, Communications Manager for the Girl Scouts – Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, said that Girl Scouting has a long legacy. “It’s really stood the test of time,” Thornton said, noting the Scouts’ research-based programs, entrepreneurship, STEM, financial literacy, and awareness programs. She added that the focus of the Girls Scouts is “building real life skills that are needed in the future.” With that goal in mind, the Scouts are offering new badges, including STEM work and outdoorsbased badges. “We think that it’s really important for girls to have this opportunity,” Thornton said. Creating new troops will give more girls the chance to join. Volunteers who would like to help form new troops or work with an existing troop can go online to www.girlscoutsaz.org and click the Volunteer tab for more information. From the youngest to the oldest Scouts, all the girls have the opportunity to learn and grow in Girl Scouts. Daisy troop leader Vanessa Clifton of Cave Creek said she has watched the K-1 girls in her troop grow and evolve as they progress throughout the year. “I’ve watched my girls blossom over the last year,” Clifton said. Clifton’s troop is working on Brownie legacy badges; activities with the younger troops may be stewarded by girls from older troops. Recent activities have included a trip to the Science Center, a horseback

riding outing, and a tour of the Desert Botanical Gardens. Jennifer Smith’s Cave Creek troop includes 8th grade members, and at that age, the Scouts are taking on some of the leadership responsibilities themselves. “They have chosen what badges they want to work on, and they’ve also chosen what kind of extra activities they want to do,” Smith, said. “We try to include some badge work on different topics,” Smith continued. Badge work ranges from financial skills to leadership to science, as well as just-for-fun badges, like learning about makeup. Volunteers are always being sought for various activities and for troop leadership. Smith said there is always “an abundance of girls who want to be Girl Scouts and not enough leaders to lead them.” Clifton noted that every trip requires a certain number of friends and family volunteers to make the event happen. All volunteers are background checked, Clifton added. Smith specified that volunteers don’t have to be the troop leader or co-leader to help out. Her troop has multiple volunteers who pitch in with craft supplies, snacks, and other troop needs. “We tried to spread it out so all the responsibility wasn’t just on the leader,” Smith said.

Clifton noted that her troop is mostly full and that new troops tend to fill up very quickly. Many areas have a waiting list for girls who want to join Girl Scouts, so to accommodate those girls, troops need to have enough volunteers to help with the existing troop or to branch out and create a new troop. “It’s very dependent on parents stepping up,” Smith said. Smith has two daughters in Girl Scouts, and she said the time they spend together in Scouts is “great quality time.” “It’s all time I feel is well spent,” Smith said. For Smith, the Girl Scout experience has been excellent, both as a parent and a troop leader. She noted that the girls have had many opportunities through Girls Scouts that they wouldn’t have had if they hadn’t joined. “I know that it’s an experience that all of the parents in my troop have been very grateful for,” Smith said. Clifton called being a part of Girls Scouts “unbelievably rewarding”, noting that this impacts the girls’ lives and empowers them to be leaders. “Of all of the different volunteer things I have done, it’s been by far the most rewarding experience,” Clifton said.
