Desert Foothills debuts season with Charlie Brown MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR

Rock band set for Halloween show Friday MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR

As an Arizona native Roger Clyne has an appreciation for the southwest. The front man for Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers said he’s looking forward to the band’s first performance in Cave Creek, an 8:30 p.m. show Friday at Harold’s Corral. “I kind of rediscovered Cave Creek,” he said. “My mother moved up there not too long ago and I was up there for lunch at Harold’s when my promoter suggested doing a show there. It’s close to the Valley, but it’s still somewhere you can go and see the stars and smell the creosote.” Clyne, a Tempe resident, initially hit it big with The Refreshments in the mid 1990s, most notable for their tune “Banditos”, before retooling to establish Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers along with drummer Paul “P.H.” Naffah. Over the last decade the Peacemakers have released six albums, all of which have debuted in the top 10 on

He’s the lovable loser audiences can’t help but root for. Desert Foothills Theater opens the 2011-2012 season at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Center with its production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”. Pinnacle High School junior Joseph Halverson plays the lead character, often called a blockhead, who is prone to landing flat on his back when attempting to show of his athletic prowess. “I’m not good in sports either,” Halverson said. “We actually have a lot of similarities. I’m a nice guy too. He’s pessimistic, but he’s friendly and he always tries his best. I think that’s what draws the crowd to him.” The 17-year-old, who has previously performed in Music Man and Midsummer Night’s Dream, said he relished the opportunity to play a little kid again.

“I heard about it last minute and ended up auditioning for the part in a Starbucks,” he said. “That was a little strange, but it worked.” Mason Reeves, a 13-year-old eighth grader at Explorer Middle School, said he was drawn to the show because of the music, particularly the tunes associated with his character, Schroeder. “I play guitar instead of the piano, but I liked his character,” said Reeves, who acknowledged that beyond knowing the names of the characters, he really wasn’t all that familiar with Charles Schultz Peanuts cartoon strip prior to being cast in the show. Reeves said he has some fun dialogue with a couple characters. “Lucy is extremely annoying,” he said. “She’s mean to a lot of people, but she’s in love with Schroeder and I’m not interested. And then Sally and I, we pick at each other back and forth.”

Playing Sally is Devon Prokopek, a 16-year-old Pinnacle High School sophomore. “I think it’s a hilarious show,” she said. “They’re little kids, but they have almost an adult’s mindset. It’s pretty unexpected how they talk.” Prokopek thinks her

character might even be the funniest in the cast. “Sally is the stupid one of the bunch, but she has those random insightful moments of brilliance that

Continued from page 1 time I thought it was the worst thing in the world,” Clyne said. “I wanted to be surfing and skateboarding and instead I was working on their land. Later in life though, I found inspiration in the desert. In order to slough off our old skin we put on backpacks, filled canteens and went trekking across the desert for three weeks with a couple tape recorders, working on some new music. The journey of this band started there. I’ve always found the desert to be nurturing and I wanted to share it.” The result was their debut album, Honky Tonk, which came out in 1999 with Clyne and Naffah joined by Jim Dalton and Nick Scropos. Over the years the group’s sound has been described as everything from Americana, Pop, Alternative Country and Rock. “We just go with what feels right,” Clyne said. “We’ve had people suggest we focus more on country, or change this or change that, but it has to be an honest expression first. I think that’s a big part of our success, that we lead our art with our heart.” So whether it’s coming up

with the tune the Arizona Diamondbacks play after each home victory, taking the group’s annual trip to Mexico where they not only perform, but host a soccer tournament for charity, the 43-year-old Clyne, said he continues to enjoy what he’s doing. After being on tour for an extended run Clyne said he’s anxious to pick up his acoustic guitar and get back to writing new music. “It’s really more of a surprise,” he said. “I’m really glad to still be rocking. We appreciate our fans. They are so different in terms of ideologies, religions, political views, but everyone just seems to be real cool. It’s a bunch that have a respect for diversity of thought. When we put on a show it is people coming together to celebrate humanity.” For information on the show, which is part of Cave Creek Wicked, go to ticketmaster.com. Tickets range in price from $45 for VIP seating with a cocktail server and access to the VIP patio section, to $35 for general admission down to $20 for standing tickets. Day of show tickets will be available at the gate. For information on the band go to azpeacemakers.com.

leave the audience wondering how she came up with that,” she said. “I just love it.” Despite being a teen, Prokopek said playing a little kid comes pretty easily. “I actually was told I was skipping too much,” she admits. “I’m pretty bubbly and I guess a little childish. I’m just having so much fun.” Prokopek said she has worked with director Mark Clement before and viewed that opportunity as a draw to performing in the show. “He always has ideas, but he lets the actors figure out how they want to perform the character,” she said. “He doesn’t try to change you.” Clement is making his directing debut with Desert Foothills Theater, but has directed “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” once before. “The last time was with an

adult cast,” he said. “The adult show was just the six main characters, but in doing the show with a children’s cast I wanted to work with an ensemble.” Clement, who has a cast of 20 for the show, said the larger cast was helpful in creating the neighborhood feel he remembers in growing up in the ‘70s. “Peanuts is a comic strip so it’s broken up into all these little vignettes, but I wanted it to feel like a neighborhood where you could wander down the street and one group would be riding their bikes and another would be playing sports and there were just a lot of kids outside having fun,” he said. Clement said the biggest challenge with working with the youth cast is making sure they understand the dialogue. “Charles Schultz uses a lot of adult vocabulary and has adult-like conversations in the

cartoon,” he said. “So we’ve done a lot of discussion on interpreting the lines, because we need the kids to understand the humor. A lot of the dialogue is fairly cerebral, but these kids have done a great job. They’ve been very dedicated over the last eight weeks and I think we’re ready for an audience.” The show’s run includes a total of eight performances. Along with Friday’s premiere, there will be 7:30 p.m. shows on Saturday, Nov. 4, and Nov. 5. Additionally matinee performances are set for 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5 and Nov. 6. Tickets for the show range from $12 - 15 for youth and from $16 – 20 for adults. Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Center is located at 33606 N. 60th St. in Scottsdale.

Billboard’s Internet sales chart. In addition to playing tunes from their latest album, Unida Cantina, which came out earlier this year, the group’s lead vocalist said they’ll be in the Halloween spirit for Friday’s performance. “We’ve done some different things on Halloween, from costume parties to small theater or club shows, but this is creative,” he said. “Abnormal is a good word. The band is going to be dressed as our favorite zombies and we encourage the crowd coming out to do the same.” Born in Tucson and having grown up in Tempe, Clyne said he’s grateful to still be performing after all these years. “When we were The Refreshments in the early years I remember there being a buzz, but I never had a sense for exactly how big it was,” he said. “I was just happy to be playing rock and roll. That’s such an intrinsically rewarding thing.” When the Refreshments run came to an end Clyne and Naffah decided they wanted to work on a new project. “Growing up I spent my summers with my grandparents down in Sonoita and at the

Cactus Shadows Falcons volleyball class of 2012, including from left: Livi Johnson, Connor Malone, Leah Manak, Suzi Desalvo, Kalyn Peters and Lauren Kunkel won the final home match of their career with a 2025, 25-19, 25-18, 25-20 over Deer Valley. To view more photos from the Oct. 18 match go to facebook.com/ thefoothills.focus. MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR

Heading into Tuesday’s regular season finale the Cactus Shadows Falcons volleyball team had a chance to finish with a winning record when they traveled to Paradise Valley. In recent seasons a winning record for the Falcons wouldn’t be an accomplishment of note, for a program that has gone to the state semifinals and the state finals the previous two seasons respectively. The 2011 Falcons, however, didn’t experience anything approaching a normal season. Just days before their season started coach Tom Gardner accepted a college coaching job. Acting quickly the Falcons tabbed assistant Amanda Ware to take over. While all involved said the transition was smooth as could be expected, the Falcons were an up and down squad in 2011 never winning or losing more than three consecutive matches. On Tuesday they had an opportunity to match the longest winning streak of the season and get to 15-14 overall (results were unavailable at press time) Though qualifying for the post season appeared unlikely, both Ware and senior Suzi Desalvo said the team made finishing the season on a high note a priority. On Oct. 18, Senior Night at Cactus Shadows, the Falcons sent six members of the class

of 2012 out with a win in their final home match, overcoming a slow start to rally for a four-set victory 20-25, 25-19, 25-18, 2520 over Deer Valley. “Any time we take the court winning is what it’s about,” Ware said. “No, our chances don’t look real good, but you don’t know. All you can do is take care of what you can control. Maybe some other teams lose out. If we win out maybe we sneak in there.” Having split the first two matches with the Skyhawks the Falcons struggled in the opening set as they consistently found a wall in the middle in the form of Skyhawks juniors Raiyen Fielding (6-foot-4) and Amanda Conlin (6-foot-2). “It was just the mental side of volleyball,” Ware said. “We spent the practice leading up to this match hitting around the middle block, but we didn’t do a very good job in the first game. After that first set thought we got our focus back. When we played the way we’re capable of this season we could play with anybody.” Desalvo was the catalyst in the win as she and her fellow classmates Connor Malone, Livi Johnson, Lauren Kunkel, Kalyn Peters and Leah Manak stepped off their home court for the final time as winners. “This means so much to us,” Desalvo said. “We had jitters all day. We all had so much energy

knowing this was our last time.” Desalvo said at times it was a trying season, but she said she always had faith in her team. “We love playing together,” she said. “We took it up a notch tonight. We wanted to go out with a bang.” A night after winning the final home match of their season the Falcons travelled to Cottonwood and earned a three set sweep of Mingus, winning a wild opening set 31-29 and then 25-16 and 2518 to close the match.

Friday was Senior Night at Cactus Shadows High School, but while the game was a chance to honor the outgoing seniors the contest also offered a glimpse to the program’s future. In a game that wasn’t decided until a swarm of Cactus Shadows defenders brought down Paradise Valley junior Ryan Finley on the two yard-line and the Trojans were unable to get to the line of scrimmage and get off another play, the Falcons earned their third win of the season in a 49-42 thriller. “Going in I thought it might end up being a shootout because both teams throw the ball well, but by the end I thought I was going to have a heart attack,” Cactus Shadows coach Greg Davis said. Heading into the game with a 2-6 record, the Falcons employed a new look Friday, one which included a heavy dose of junior quarterback Bryce Kinsler running the football. “We’re going to create a tiny Tebow strategy,” Davis said. “What we’ve seen from a lot of defenses is they drop a bunch of players into coverage and aren’t even considering Bryce a threat to run the ball. Well, he’s a good athlete. We can use him as a duel threat and then they’re going to have to account for him both as a runner and as a passer.” For the night Kinsler tallied 505 yards of total offense. Along with throwing for 348 yards and four touchdowns on 26-of-37 passing the junior also rushed the ball 28 times for 157 yards. Kinsler was joined by junior R.J. Anderson as a 100 yard rusher, as the junior rushed for 114 yards on only 12 carries. “That was the game plan,” Kinsler said. “We wanted to run the ball to open up the pass.” Jumping to a 14-0 lead the Falcons supplied pressure on the visiting Trojans all night long. Despite scoring on four of their first five possessions though the Falcons couldn’t shake the Trojans, who also moved the ball up and down the field with relative ease. At the half the shootout Davis had predicted was in full swing with the Falcons clinging to a 2821 advantage.

Cactus Shadows players and coaches rush onto the field to celebrate a dramatic 49-42 win over Paradise Valley Friday.To view more photos from the game go to facebook.com/thefoothills.focus.

After Paradise Valley missed a 31-yard field goal on their first drive of the second half the Falcons responded with an 80-yard drive capped by a 10-yard touchdown pass from Kinsler to junior Matt Hartlen on 3rd-and-9. Not content with reestablishing a two score lead, Davis called for an onside kick. On the play Connor Folts not only drilled the ball off one of the Paradise Valley defenders, but the Falcons kicker also recovered the ricochet to give the Falcons the ball once again. Ten plays later senior fullback Bryan Lynn barreled his way across the goal line from one yard out. With three minutes remaining in the third quarter the Falcons led by 21 for the first time all season. Paradise Valley, clinging to playoff aspirations, wouldn’t go easily though as Finley threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to close the third quarter and then a 7-yard touchdown pass with 8:21 remaining in the game to pull within 42-35. In the back-and-forth affair Kinsler responded with an 8-play march that featured a 41-yard run from the Falcons quarterback and then a 1-yard quarterback sneak on third and goal. But in a second half that didn’t feature a single Paradise Valley punt, the Trojans matched the effort, this time a 54-yard touchdown pass from Finley, who threw for 410 yards and five touchdowns on the

night. With 3:48 the Trojans were within 49-42. Cactus Shadows recovered an onside kick attempt by Paradise Valley, but couldn’t run out the clock. On fourth-and-one from the Trojans 23 Davis called on his quarterback to try and get a first down that would have allowed Cactus Shadows to run out the clock. Instead the quarterback options around the left side was stymied as Paradise Valley’s defense came up with the stop, tackling Kinsler short and giving the ball back to their offense with 2:01 left in the game. With no timeouts remaining Finley converted on 4-of7 passes to move his team from the Trojans 23 to the Falcons 3 as the clock dropped under 20 seconds. On 1st-and-goal from the three Finley tried to take the ball in himself, but was tackled by a host of defenders on the two-yard line. When the Trojans couldn’t get lined up in time to get off another play or down the ball to kill the clock, the Falcons began the celebration, with Davis leading the charge on to the field as a roster full of players jumped into the air, screamed and exchanged hugs as time expired. For the second time in five home games Davis was treated to being carried off the field by his players. “When the clock is against you

Around the Bluhmin’ Town

Halloween lore is full of strange ghost stories JUDY BLUHM SPECIAL FOR THE FOOTHILLS FOCUS

Boo! Are you scared yet? Well, it’s time to get in a spooky mood. I like Halloween, but a couple (of nuts) in Boston decided to take the holiday just a little too far. They planned a frightful wedding, by the bride wearing all black, the groom being carried to the alter in a coffin and the minister dressed up as a devil! Oh, and the guests had to show up in Dracula-like costumes. Now there’s a marriage made in hell. I’ve been seeing lots of little ghouls walking around and plenty of jack-o-lanterns to remind me that it’s time to make myself a nice, big Bloody Mary. Oops, what I meant to say was, it’s time to try to scare up the ghost of “Bloody Mary” by staring into a mirror that’s in a dark room, by the light of 13 candles, while chanting “Bloody Mary” 13 times. The vengeful spirit will then appear at my left shoulder. The problem is that once you see the spirit, she will either: 1) scratch your eyes out, 2) kill you or 3) drive you insane. I think I’ll pour a really stiff drink and hope for number three. Did you know that Halloween has a long tradition? What

started out in the fifth century as “All Saints Day,” was a day of observance in honor of saints with one weird twist – it was also the day that disembodied spirits came back to possess the living. The poor spirits had only one chance of an afterlife, and that was to intermingle with the living on this one particular day, in hopes of possessing a body! The living didn’t want to be possessed and in order to scare these roaming “body snatchers” away, they dressed up in terrifying costumes and paraded around their villages, making a huge racket and driving off the evil spirits. During the ninth century, beggars went around to every home in their village asking for “soul cakes” on All Saints Day. The Europeans called this “souling.” These “treats” were given in exchange for the beggars praying for the dead relatives of the kind people who passed out the cakes, since it was believed that the dead relatives needed plenty of prayer to pass from limbo into heaven. These were the early days of “trick or treat.” Let’s just say that Halloween wasn’t always a fun little, harmless holiday. Imagine having to ward off some bully of a spirit that wants to possess you! Did you know that Americans

spend $5 billion on Halloween decorations? If you thought Halloween was just a fabricated “candy holiday,” think again. For most of us, it’s a day to watch the kids dress up and pass out treats, never to give a thought about some evil spirit trying to possess us. However, it is considered a night when witches congregate, arriving on broomsticks to celebrate with a party hosted by the “horned one.” They sit around, cast spells and make mischief on Halloween, but I wouldn’t worry. I usually dress up as a witch and have never been able to make much magic. I’ll be out in my witch’s hat, waiting to see the brave children come up my walkway, boldly asking for a treat. I’ll try to scare them by saying “boo,” but the kids usually just laugh, asking for the candy. Oh well, if I get bored, I could put my clothes on inside out and walk backwards for 30 paces. If all conditions are “purfect” and I manage to walk backwards in the shadow of the moon and an owl is watching, legend has it that I will turn into a black cat – for one night only. Who needs a costume on Halloween? Have yourself a bowl of candy and a big “Bloody Mary.” Oh, be sure to be kind to black cats. Meow for now.

it seems like it goes extremely fast, but I swear I looked at the clock eight times on that final drive and it always said 1:13,” he said. “I wasn’t sure if they were going to be able to get another play off, but when the time expired I was a play ground kid all over again.” Kinsler explained that even though he and his teammates won’t get the opportunity to participate in the postseason they have continued to give it their best. “We want to finish strong,” he said. “Especially, because we want to send the seniors out the right way. We’re playing for them.” Davis said he believes a strong finish could have a carry over effect heading into 2012. “We have sophomore and juniors that have gotten valuable playing time,” he said. “To see the young guys get experience and contribute gives you reason for optimism.” The Falcons close the 2011 season on Friday at Shadow Mountain (3-6), when they

Boulder Creek closes the regular season at 7 p.m., Friday in Mesa when they take on Desert Ridge (7-2) last year’s state runners-up.

opinions and letters

Anthem Pets offers tip on keeping pets safe (This letter is written from the imagined thoughts of Tillie the dog) In the early summer of 2011 my dad and I made the trip to our new beautiful home in New River. We have been together a long time and this was a new adventure. As our things arrived I learned how hot it could be in Arizona in the summer so we spent a lot of time getting settled in, but kept cool inside the house. We had only been here two weeks, hadn’t had time to meet anyone and daddy became very tired and soon very sick. One night he left and didn’t take me with him...so strange as we went everywhere together. Maybe he went somewhere that didn’t allow dogs, like to get me some treats or something?  Well time passed. Daddy had driven himself to the Daisy Mountain Fire Station on New River Road. He was sick, not on a treat run. The caring firemen took one look at him and put him in an ambulance and off to JCL Hospital he went. He had a high fever and was too sick to tell them about me at home waiting and waiting. On the third day he woke enough to call his business agent in another state who called the Fire Department asking for help for me. Hoping I was still alive and well, a call went out to the people of Anthem Pets. Could they help? Well of course, but they would have to call the MSCO on duty to go as they needed to enter the house and the truck to get the garage door opener. Laws you know. Well hustle they did. They said they we so worried I might be dead already. Did I have food and water?  I heard vehicles and thought, oh daddy is home, but now here comes a Deputy and two nice people who tried to catch me in the house. It took me a minute, but I soon knew they were okay and maybe daddy had sent them? They hustled me into the big SUV so nice and

cool and the deputy made sure the house was okay (of course it was I was guarding). Anyway, I soon arrived at the Foothills Vet Hospital where I was a guest for the night while they checked me over, hydrated me, gave me shots just in case. In the morning the same two people picked me up and took me to a nice lady to rest and play. She said she was my foster mom. There, four little dogs welcomed me. They checked on my daddy at the hospital and said he was getting better, but not coming home yet so I put on my best manners and stayed a couple of more days. Boy, the first thing daddy did when he got home was called the nice people at Anthem Pets and they took me home pronto. I know my daddy felt better just seeing me and I sure was glad to see him. I am sure we were both wondering what the ending would have been for me had these people, who didn’t know me or my dad yet not helped out.  I hope once my Daddy feels better he will take me to that Dog Park called Jackass Acres.    I am telling my story so that no dog or cat will ever die waiting for parents to come home. Remember when the ambulance comes we may hide and they may not know we are here or in my case daddy went to them and he was too sick to tell them. Maybe a card in your wallet or purse near your medical cards saying, “I have a pet at home waiting for me.” and info on that pet.  Take a minute to save your pets life and do it now.   Pete and Macs Pet Resort is furnishing cards to Anthem Pets that you can put in your purse or billfold and spaces for info and an alternate contact person. Email anthempets@yahoo.com to get one of the cards.

Judge examines why Marbury vs. Madison still matters Did you know that the most important U . S . Supreme Court case of all time WILLIAMS involved a justice of the peace? Hopefully, you remember from your days in school a case called Marbury v. Madison. President John Adams appointed William Marbury to be a justice of the peace. Secretary of State James Madison was loyal to the newly elected President Thomas Jefferson and did not deliver the paperwork completing the appointment. Believe it or not, these simple actions of great men started us down a path that resulted in concepts that are still being debated today. On February 27, 1801, a lame duck Congress authorized the appointment of 42 justices of the peace. President Adams quickly filed these positions with members of his Federalist Party and they were confirmed by the U.S. Senate on March 3, the day before the rival political party of Jefferson was set to take office. Secretary of State John Marshall, who was also the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, sealed the

commissions and attempted to deliver them. However, a few were undelivered by the end of the day, including the one belonging to William Marbury. Marbury filed suit against the new Secretary of State, James Madison. After a series of legal maneuvers, a trial in the form of an order to show cause proceeding was held and a written opinion was issued. By modern legal standards, the events were almost absurd. Madison refused to appear before the Supreme Court because he believed that he could not be ordered to so do. As a result, there was literally a one-sided proceeding. To make it more bizarre, Chief Justice John Marshall was a fact witness in the case because he was the person who attempted to deliver the justice of the peace commission. To add to the uniqueness of this case, when a witness was asked what had happened to the undelivered commission, he asserted his right not to incriminate himself, which is the first recorded time of someone doing so under the Fifth Amendment. In a complex opinion, John Marshall noted, correctly in my opinion, “The Constitution is either a superior, paramount law, unchangeable by ordinary means, or it is on a level with

ordinary legislative acts, and like other acts, is alterable when the legislature shall please to alter it. . . . Certainly all those who have framed written constitutions contemplate them as forming the fundamental and paramount law of the nation, and consequently the theory of every such government must be, that an act of the legislature, repugnant to the constitution, is void.” Marshall declared that, “The government of the United States has been emphatically termed a government of laws, and not of men. It will certainly cease to deserve this high appellation, if the laws furnish no remedy for the violation of a vested legal right.” Then, in the most controversial sentence in the opinion, held, “It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is.” In Marbury v. Madison, the judicial branch gave itself the power to determine whether a statute is constitutional. Whether judges should have this power remains the subject of debate today. Judge Gerald Williams is the presiding justice of the peace for the Northwest Regional Court Center. His column appears monthly in The Foothills Focus.

Casino Night supports rodeo The Desert Foothills Community Association (DFCA) will host the inaugural Wild West Casino Night on Nov. 4, during the Cave Creek Wild West Days. After the financial losses due to low attendance brought by unusually bad weather during the 2011 Fiesta Days Rodeo, followed by the grand theft larceny, the rodeo committee went into fundraising mode. We had to pull our boots on and figure this thing out. We have to put our losses behind us

and move forward. Moving forward means raising money to make sure that the Tradition of the Cave Creek Fiesta Days Rodeo continues each year.
