New River gas station scheduled to open this month

NEW RIVER – After several months of construction, the New River gas station is scheduled to open this month. “We are planning on the week of Oct. 16,” site owner Marvin Rose said in an email to The Foothills Focus, adding that, due

to inspections, the timeframe could change slightly. Construction on the gas station and convenience store, located at I-17 and New River Road, began in February 2017. The building is over 10,000 sq. ft. and is set on a 4+-acre lot.

Calls to Animal Crimes Hotline lead to investigation of animal cruelty case in New River NEW RIVER – Sixteen neglected animals were removed from a New River ranch last week, and Maricopa County Sheriff ’s Office Animal Crimes Unit is investigating this animal cruelty case. MCSO issued a release and held a news conference on Sept. 28, stating that on Sept. 22, MCSO District 4 Deputies responded to citizen complaints alleging animal abuse at Remington Deaf Ranch, located on 31st Ave., in New River. At the scene, deputies found multiple animals

in poor condition; MCSO Animal Crimes Unit obtained a search warrant, and entered the property on Sept. 25. Investigators from the Animal Crimes Unit seized 16 neglected animals. Multiple horses, donkeys, and dogs were turned over to MCSO by their owner, Dan Remington, who reportedly told investigators that he didn’t have money for veterinary care. Currently, the investigation and medical reports are ongoing, MCSO said; charges are pending until medical reports are completed.

MCSO stated in the Sept. 28 news release that three teenagers, believed to be from Ethiopia, were also on the property and appeared to be working the property and attending to the animals. MCSO noted that there are unanswered questions as to how they came to reside at the ranch, which is not licensed with the state of Arizona, and MCSO immediately contacted the Arizona Department of MCSO photo

Never give up. Because just when you think the game is over, all is lost, things will never be the same, a small miracle might occur. And it gives us hope. A few weeks ago, I wrote about my friend, Diane Wilson, and her visiting tarantula, Manuel. For over twenty years, this hairy beast of the desert would migrate to Diane’s house, make himself at home and stay for about three or four months. Except for this year. No Manuel, but instead a very small, juvenile tarantula showed up, who moved quickly and didn’t stay long. Manuel, where are you? Well, the mystery has been solved. He’s back! Yes, the big, old spidey was found sitting on top of Diane’s washing machine, enjoying an afternoon nap. Had he come into the house months earlier and just stayed hidden? One year, we must remember, Manuel decided to crawl inside Diane’s big, Velcro hair curlers.

Imagine Diane’s shock when she goes to put one in her hair and finds a tarantula curled up inside, sleeping like a baby! Perhaps a scream, but Manuel just walked indignantly away to find another “secret spot.” And so it goes. When you let a spider have the rule of the house, tiptoe carefully and be prepared! Of course, nature is puzzling. Manuel should be getting ready to leave, not just arriving. And now that he is back, Diane has

not seen the young tarantula. Was there a fight? Was the “little guy” an interloper and sent packing by the Master of the House – Manuel? Oh dear, if only he could talk…there would be a story to tell. I did have my own tarantula experience. Down in the barn,

in the corner of a stall was a big, beautiful tarantula just sitting on the ground. Since my 1200-pound mare was close by, I thought I better relocate the furry arachnid to a safer place. How would I would I do this? So I got a lightweight shovel and gently placed it under spidey till he walked on. I took him out of the stall and he stared at me with big, black eyes and did not look happy. He didn’t look so friendly like our Manuel.

Pictured: Manuel!

Where would I put a big tarantula to be safely out of the reach of horses? Into the barn breezeway we go! Oh yea, like the spider was on an amusement park ride, I carried him around until he was carefully placed in the safety of the breezeway. He glared at me and then sauntered off the shovel and walked up the barn door, over the door and down into the stall and onto the ground in the exact same spot where he was before! In other words, do not mess with a tarantula! Or forces of nature! Sometimes when we think we are helping, we are not. Other times when we think an ending has occurred, we were wrong. And just when we think we have it all figured out, we find out we haven’t. Life is learning experience…...so Manuel, welcome back! Judy Bluhm is a writer and a local realtor.

Judge Williams’ Column

High Court Approves Reforms

JUDGE GERALD A. WILLIAMS NORTH VALLEY JUSTICE OF THE PEACE

Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Scott Bales established a Civil Justice Reform Task Force. It examined what other state court systems were doing with a focus on case management, discovery, compulsory arbitration, and court operations. As part of its annual review of petitions recommending changes to court rules, the Arizona Supreme Court approved a set for the task’s

recommended reforms. These rule changes will become effective and will have the force of law on July 1, 2018. Future cases will be assigned to one of three tiers. Tier 1 cases are comparatively simple cases that can be tried in one or in two days. These could include automobile collisions, intentional torts, and premises liability cases. Tier 2 cases will be lawsuits with an intermediate level of complexity. They could include either cases with counterclaims or a requirement for expert witness testimony. Tier 3 cases will be those that are logistically or legally complex. They could include class actions, antitrust claims, construction defect litigation, environmental torts, and product liability cases. Different sets of discovery time limits will be applied to different lawsuits, depending upon the case’s tier assignment.

For example, each side gets 30 total hours of fact witness depositions for Tier 3 cases, but only 15 total hours for Tier 2, and only 5 total hours for Tier 1. This new proportional discovery system continues Arizona’s tradition of being a leader in civil justice reform. It, along with other reforms, should help fulfill the task force’s goal “to reduce the cost and time required to resolve civil cases in Arizona’s Superior Courts.” These changes will apply only to civil lawsuits filed in Superior Court. Civil lawsuits in Justice Court cases will still be governed by the Justice Court Rules of Civil Procedure. Residential eviction actions in both sets of courts will still be governed by the Rules of Procedure for Eviction Actions. Judge Williams is the Justice of the Peace for the North Valley Justice Court. His column appears monthly in The Foothills Focus.

Archaeology Society meeting set for Oct. 11 CAVE CREEK – The Arizona Archaeology Society – Desert Foothills Chapter will host PhD Aaron Wright at their Oct. 11 meeting. Wright will present The Western Range of the Redon-Buff Culture, Redux. Prehistoric Southwestern Arizona is the interface between Patayan and Hohokam material culture and settlement patterns. The western frontier of the Hohokam World remains little studied and therefore poorly defined. This presentation reviews the history of research on this topic revisiting the development and eventual demise of primary Hohokam villages along the lower Gila River. In contemporary perspective, this historical trajectory raises important questions about ethnic diversity, co-residence, and conflict. Aaron Wright is a Preservation Archaeologist at Archaeology Southwest, a nonprofit organization in Tucson. He is the author of multiple books.

Wright’s research is currently focused on the Hohokam and Patayan traditions in southwestern Arizona. Wright is the lead researcher on Archaeology Southwest’s long-term goal of establishing a Great Bend of the Gila

Phoenix Boys Choir travels throughout Black Canyon Heritage Park hosting Public Lands Day China during 5-week concert tour Celebration NORTH VALLEY – The Phoenix Boys Choir performed a 5-week concert tour in China this summer, in what the choir described as the experience of a lifetime. Phoenix Boys Choir Executive Director Oleg Shvets explained how the trip came to be, stating that the China-based Poly Theater Group invited the choir to go on a sponsored 23city, 5-and-a-half-weeks tour over summer 2017.

“It was truly a once-in-alifetime experience!” Shvets said in an email interview. “The PBC typically does a 3-week long International Tour every other year, so this fit perfectly into our schedule,” Shvets said. “The Boys performed in a different city and theater for each performance for audiences that reached 6001,200 per concert.” The choir had the opportunity to experience a unique culture and visit places many schoolkids only read about. “After being in a completely different country and culture for well over a month, the Boys were entrenched in a cultural experience second to none,” Shvets described, noting that the choir had the opportunity to visit many famous sites, including the Great Wall, The Forbidden Temple, and Tiananmen Square. “These experiences gave the boys insight and an educational

opportunity that just can’t be replicated in a classroom here in the United States. The Boys were also immersed into the cultural fabric of the Chinese culture, learning the language, eating the food, and meeting the people that make China such a unique place.” This trip marked the first time since 1998 the Phoenix Boys Choir had toured China. The 2017 concert tour began in Beijing and concluded in Shanghai, with the choir performing in more than 20 different venues. During the China tour, the Phoenix Boys Choir performed to acclaim from their audiences, selling over 800 CDs during the tour. “Many of the concerts halls were sold out with over 1,000 people in attendance singing and applauding the Boys,” Shvets described. “After each concert, the Boys had the opportunity to go into the

lobby and meet and greet the patrons, sign autographs, and take photos.” The Phoenix Boys Choir has helped generations of boys experience the world through music. Founded in 1947, the choir has recorded CDs; performed for multiple dignitaries, including four U.S. presidents; and received numerous awards, including a Grammy Award in 2000. The choir’s mission statement reads: “The Phoenix Boys Choir, through educating boys in the art of singing and performing the finest music in the boy choir tradition, develops character, discipline, leadership, global awareness, and a strong commitment to excellence, thereby contributing to the greater Phoenix musical life and enhancing Arizona’s cultural reputation nationally and internationally.” The boys of the choir come from throughout the Valley, including three current performers from the Cave Creek area. Their diverse backgrounds, educations, and musical abilities help shape the choir into a harmonious blend. The choir offers them an excellent musical education and advancements and opportunities like the China tour that wouldn’t be possible elsewhere. Each year, the choir performs a full concert season, reaching almost 100,000 people every year. See more about the Phoenix Boys Choir, including a full concert schedule, at www.boyschoir.org.

BLACK CANYON CITY – On Saturday, Oct. 14, up to 25 volunteers at Black Canyon Heritage Park will join thousands of volunteers who visit their favorite parks, beaches, wildlife preserves and forests to give back to the treasured lands where we play, learn, and relax in celebration of the 24th annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD) – the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. The actual day in Sept. 30 but celebrations occur throughout the year. Volunteers can sign up at http://www.signupgenius. com/go/4090f4aaea72ca2fb6public. Coordinated each year by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), National Public Lands Day

brings together volunteers from coast to coast to improve and restore the lands and facilities that people across America use and enjoy every day. Each year, NPLD volunteers provide tens of millions of dollars’ worth of services in one day that would otherwise take limited park staff months to accomplish. Last year, more than 200,000 people participated in events at more than 2,500 sites in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C. Seven federal agencies will participate in NPLD along with hundreds of state, county, and city partners and a host of nonprofit groups. Toyota is the event’s national corporate sponsor for the 19th consecutive year.

Ingredients for Success SHEA STANFIELD ARTS COLUMNIST

Laurene Powell Jobs wrote, “Persistence, creativity, and extraordinary discipline are the ingredients of a successful life journey.” Local artist Colleen Taylor has taken these and added a heaping helping of flexibility to her personal “food for life.” Colleen grew up in Southern California. Her artistic path began with dancing at the age of 2, an interest she still enjoys, followed by establishing a life-long love of cooking, with her grandmother, at the age of 7; this formed the foundation for a later career in catering. Colleen then went on to enter the world of writing before arriving in Carefree, Arizona. She and husband Tom established their working art studio/gallery, on their home property, with plenty of space for her painting and husband Tom’s photography. Colleen and Tom’s first move to the Scottsdale area was actually in 1992 with his job. Establishing a career for Colleen would prove to be difficult with the amount of moving they needed to do with Tom’s occupation. So, true to her positive nature and persistence, Colleen “re-imaged” herself each step of the way, using the foundation of her childhood experiences to create each new endeavor. While living in Los Angeles, Colleen opened Crossland Catering and was fortunate to be the exclusive caterer for many of the women’s clubs and churches in the area. Her ability to visualize guided her into designing and catering weddings, birthdays, business meetings, and grand openings. Several subsequent moves forward, Colleen became the owner and operator of a clothing design shop where, yet again, her creative talents took hold in a very three-dimensional way in the world of fashion. Colleen and Tom thought they had made their final move back to Arizona in 2009. They settled in Carefree, where she met her next creative challenge.

At the time, Colleen became her mother’s caregiver and picked up painting in the process. She soon discovered the peace derived from the process of painting. It wasn’t long before it became much more than just another creative outlet. This new expression provided Colleen a unique and special balance in her life, as well as introducing a new joy to her mother and her many friends, as her works came to life. Colleen sought out instructional help from area artists in an effort to expand her techniques, as well as knowledge of subject matter. She was on the move once again, but this time, through oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and pen and ink. The images appearing on her canvases were a variety of floral, wildlife, abstracts, whimsical subjects, and landscapes. Colleen has been referred to as a “colorist.” She loves to mix bright, vibrant colors that jump off the surface to hold you in a giant embrace. In 2012, the “embrace” of her watercolor and oils grabbed the attention of the Arizona Art Alliance and the Sonoran Arts League. She received jury status from both organizations. As Colleen will share with you, “I never know where my muse will take me from day to day. That’s the excitement that fuels my passion in the creations yet to be.” Colleen has exhibited her works at Taste of Cave Creek, Arizona Art Alliance, the Desert Foothills Library, and

the annual Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour & Sales in 2013 and 2014. Shortly after that last tour, and in her mother’s memory, she and Tom relocated to San Diego, where the three of them had spent 10 fun filled years in the ‘80s. Colleen and Tom founded the Alpine Art League, which boasts 30+ members. During that time, Colleen continued to show and sell her artwork at the Alpine Library, the Borrego Art Institute, the Alpine Community Center and the gallery/studio she shared with her husband. Alas, the Sonoran Desert was calling once again. As a result, earlier this year Colleen and Tom returned to their home in Carefree (their 13th and final move). They are opening their studio once again for the 21st Annual Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour, the last two weekends of November 2017. Colleen invites you to discover what she has been up to with her new medium explorations. Meanwhile, Colleen will be showing her work – Vibrant Feathered Gathering, a pen and ink drawing – at the Herberger Museum’s Exhibit entitled, “Nature Nurtures Us” from now through Nov. 9. To see more of Colleen Taylor’s work, visit her website at www.carefreefineartstudio. com, e-mail her at colleen@ colleentaylorart.com or contact her by phone at 480-912-3366.

Scar is declawed. Due to the circumstances of his rescue, not much is known about his age and background. If you would like to meet this special kitty who has overcome so much, go online to http://anthempets. org/adopt-3 to schedule a meet and greet.

The Foothills Focus

In 1998, expatriates in Shanghai, China, were the first customers of Sharon Winters’ Pearl Fever, LLC; since then, Sharon has maintained a pearl jewelry boutique business and will be selling her latest handmade designs on October 15 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Old Town Scottsdale, 7324 E. Indian School Road, starting at 10:00AM. The photo shows a recent order for a customer. The necklace is 12-13mm pearls and the earrings are 10mm pearls with 14K gold posts. This order includes an extra pair of clutch backs for the earrings. The clasp on the necklace is 14K gold. The cost of this pearl necklace should be $3,000.00 for the size and quality of these pearls, which are difficult to get. Our price at Pearl Fever is $960.00. We will have only three of these necklaces available at our next show.
