Federal grant will help address Loop 101 congestion NORTH VALLEY – Good news for commuters: a $6 million federal grant will help the Arizona Department of

Transportation and partner agencies advance the use of technology to help drivers steer clear of congestion on the 60-mile-long Loop 101 freeway in the Phoenix area. The project will include development of a Decision Support System to provide Loop 101 drivers with realtime information, including best detour routes, when freeway slowing occurs due to crashes, disabled vehicles, or other incidents. ADOT teamed up with the Maricopa County Department of Transportation, several Valley cities, the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, plus Valley Metro to apply for the Federal Highway Administration grant as part of that agency’s Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment program. The federal grant will allow ADOT to work with Maricopa County and other partners on the design of the Loop 101 Mobility Project. Other technologies to be deployed include enhanced traffic signal timing to help move traffic on arterial streets and transit routes when the freeway is congested. The development of a mobile app will improve data exchange between the regional transportation network and the travelers who use it. Transit vehicles also will be outfitted with connected vehicle technology to improve accessibility to destinations while helping people, including senior citizens, who depend on transit services. ADOT and its partners also have identified $27 million in existing project funding that, when combined with the $6 million federal grant, will pay for designing and installing the Loop 101 Mobility Project within the next four years.

Amazon wants to visit you. Okay, not exactly. But they would like electronic access to your front door so when you order a package, the driver on any carrier can deliver your box inside your house. I say brilliant! It is called the Amazon Key. And because we know how Amazon is taking over the world, the next step will be the driver can walk the dog, sweep the floor, and load up the dishwasher! There will be no end in sight to what can be done in the name of Service! (Or intrusion). Well, Americans (some) have sticky fingers. In other words, thieves seem to steal 11 million packages left on doorsteps and porches every year in this fine country! So possibly, some thieves might be the actual purchaser claiming to have never received the package (while they are watching the new television), but most “disappearing” boxes

are true stranger thefts. Yep, there are mean people driving around neighborhoods and running up to strangers’ doors and grabbing boxes. What the heck is happening here? In our little, safe, lovely towns, we are being robbed! I did mention a few years ago how every single apple was picked off my front yard tree, which would have required a ladder and a whole lot of nerve! I recall running into the house screaming to my husband, “We’ve been robbed!” When I showed him the damage, a tree that had been loaded with hundreds of apples picked clean, and not even one on the ground, he could only wonder what monster was out on the loose. The crime was never solved. Oh, getting back to “The Key.” Christmas is coming, and I want to order gifts and have them safely delivered inside the house. My husband says the technology to remotely open doors will soon be hacked and criminals will have easy access to millions of homes. My friend, the attorney, says that allowing strangers to enter your house is as dangerous as letting expensive items sit idle on your doorstep. A police officer was quoted as saying, “this is the stupidest idea yet, and therefore plenty of people will love it.” Very funny!

Well, all the naysayers go at it. Wait and see. Soon our drivers will deliver the goods, clean the house, cook our meal and pour the wine. We are getting close to that! A friend is writing a book (fiction) about a company that overtakes the world. Every item, from food to tools, comes from one source. And eventually, people the world over gradually believe that doing anything, like cooking, cleaning, going to stores to shop, will be completely passé. Hairdressers and nail-techs will come to us! We will be the human race that stopped the “race” and began to settle (decline) into the mode of “gatherers.” The “hunter” part of the equation is gone. We get our devices, look, and click away. A modern (hellish) world is evolving. Okay, so deliver my packages, right inside my house, oh, and I might have a horse or two to feed. Check the barn. Let’s embrace the future and see how convenient (lazy) our life can become. But wait, perhaps the only “key” we need is to our cars, so we can go out and shop local! Do it! Live local. Lock your doors. Judy Bluhm is a writer and a local realtor. Have a comment or a story? Email Judy at judy@ judybluhm.com.

Carefree to hold annual Salute to Veterans CAREFREE – The Town of Carefree will once again honor veterans with a presentation and musical tribute on Veterans Day.

Event Swing Band. The finale will once again include the bugle call, The Last Post, followed by TAPS.

This is the ninth annual event. The community is invited to attend and support local veterans.

Multiple injuries caused by Oct. 31 car crash in north Phoenix PHOENIX – Multiple people were injured in a car crash near Dixileta Dr. and North Valley Pkwy. on Halloween night. A child was airlifted to the hospital after the crash, and several other occupants of the vehicle were transported by

ambulance. No further updates on the condition of the vehicle occupants has been released by investigators. Sgt. Jonathan Howard of the Phoenix Police Department said via email on Nov. 6 that there were 10 people

reported to be in the car. “At this point, it appears only the driver was belted,” Howard said. The investigation into the crash is continuing, and no further details have yet been released.

contributing factors to the accident, along with the red light violation. Charges for both drivers will be determined once the investigation is concluded, said Sergeant Fortune in the press release.

Currently, police are not releasing any of the passengers or drivers’ names, and there is no word on their current conditions.

Arizona DOT launches ADOT Alerts free travel app NORTH VALLEY – Available now for your mobile device: A free app from the Arizona Department of Transportation that will help you avoid unplanned and lengthy travel delays, and other serious highway hazards. ADOT Alerts will help keep drivers moving on Arizona’s highways and away from potentially dangerous situations by providing information to drivers before they are trapped on a highway closed because of a crash or severe weather. Using geofencing technology, ADOT will send alerts to mobile devices with the app in affected areas and in advance of roadway decision points, giving the public plenty of time to choose an alternate route or delay their travel plans and avoid sitting in lengthy backups. “We’re excited about ADOT Alerts because the app will help us quickly get critical information directly to motorists,” ADOT Director John Halikowski said. “With that information, travelers can make a decision to take a different route or stop somewhere for a bite to eat or stay where they’re at, and avoid sitting in a long backup because of an unplanned event, like a serious crash that closes a highway. We can also alert motorists to public safety issues, like wrong-way vehicles or severe weather affecting state highways.” ADOT Alerts goes beyond providing daily commuting reports and travel times – ADOT already provides that kind of real-time information to drivers via overhead message

boards and social media, not to mention the numerous traffic and navigation apps that also offer that kind of information. By using geofencing, ADOT can send alerts only to mobile devices with the app in an impacted area. That means affected motorists can make a decision to re-route or delay their travel plans long before encountering a traffic backup. All alerts are sent by a public information officer at ADOT’s Traffic Operations Center to ensure they are accurate, critical in nature and appropriately targeted to a geographic area. To get the most out of ADOT Alerts, enable Location Services and Push Notifications so you can be immediately notified of the most relevant alerts in your area. That way, whenever ADOT sends an alert to an area your mobile device is in, it will pop up on your device’s screen

with a distinctive alert sound. Users do not have to sign up, register or create a log-in to use the app. You remain 100 percent anonymous. The app can be downloaded free of charge in Apple’s App Store and Google Play. Search for “ADOT Alerts” in the respective app store. “The introduction of the ADOT Alerts app is one more way ADOT is working to promote highway safety and reduce frustrations for drivers,” Halikowski said. “We want drivers to be informed about issues, knowledgeable about options, and up-to-date on hazards. We hope this app – along with AZ511 and our social media outreach – will prove to be a major advancement in our efforts to connect with drivers.” More information about the app can be found at ADOTAlerts.com.

visit the finance office, and the new building also houses the human resources and payroll departments. At the ribbon cutting ceremony, DMFD Support Services Deputy Chief Danny Johnson, who has overseen this construction project, thanked the architects, building partners, and contractor CORE Construction. At the ceremony, Northwest Valley Firefighters Association Local 4361 Representative and DMFD Engineer Jon Binsbacher thanked several organizations and individuals, including the Daisy Mountain Fire Board for their support and Chief Johnson for his ongoing work on this project. He also thanked those who worked to pass the bond that funded the building’s construction. Binsbacher noted that the administration staff outgrew their former quarters at Station 141 long ago. “This is going to help out with that a lot,” Binsbacher said. Binsbacher concluded his thanks to the project’s supporters by thanking the community. “This is for the community. We wouldn’t have been able to do this without their support,” Binsbacher emphasized. Fire Board Chairman Brian Moore also thanked the community, as well as the staff.

Facebook.com/TheFoothillsFocus “I would like to thank the fire department staff, everybody who worked very hard to make this happen,” Moore said. Moore referred to the financials of funding the building, noting the growth of the area DMFD serves. As the needs of the north valley have changed, the fire department has focused on meeting those needs with additional staff and necessary equipment and now the administration building.

Maricopa County District 3 Supervisor Bill Gates called the new building a “wonderful addition” that will support the efforts of the fire department and stated what a pleasure it has been during his first year as a County Supervisor to work with both the Daisy Mountain Fire Department and the north valley community. Gates noted how many fires that DMFD’s firefighters have fought in the north valley in recent weeks, praising the tireless efforts of the crews. “You guys work hard – you do important work,” Gates said, addressing the DMFD staff. “It’s really important to

the entire county, so we really appreciate what this building means to help you in continuing your mission.” DMFD Chief Mark Nichols called the construction of the administration building the “result of a collaborative effort”, with many people working to bring the project to life. “The building is dedicated to supporting the field personnel and their mission statement to serve the citizens,” Nichols said. Nichols recognized the administration staff in attendance, referring to them as the “boots on the ground”, working behind the scenes to support everyone else. Nichols also noted he wanted to recognize Chief Johnson. “He’s worked very hard,” Nichols said of Johnson. “It’s not been without some challenges.” Nichols also encouraged the community to utilize the new administration building. Johnson closed the ceremony by addressing the staff members who will be serving in the administration building, saying the building could only be as good as its heart. “The administrative staff and senior staff who will work here are the heart of this organization,” Johnson emphasized. The new DMFD administration building is located just south of Station 142 on Daisy Mountain Dr., in Anthem.

Phoenix, AZ 85085

PHOENIX – If going to the groomer tends to be a bit “hairraising” for your dog, now there’s a new option for the doggy salon experience. Twin Tails Cageless Grooming, located at 2805 W. Carefree Hwy., opened on Oct. 12. This salon utilizes oneon-one time with each dog, and each pet is attended to as soon as they come in, so the dogs don’t have to wait. Jamie Matson, who owns the Cageless Grooming salons with her husband Bill, describes the Cageless Grooming experience as similar to a ‘human’ hair salon. “We only groom ONE pet at a time per groomer, unlike other traditional salons that have many pets arrive and then place them in a cage until their groomer is ready for them,” Matson said. “Our salons do NOT have any cages and your pets will NEVER be placed in a cage for drying or waiting.” “Our grooming salons are “cage-less” but not “leash free”,” Matson explained. “Pets are never allowed to roam around the salon or co-mingle with other pets. Every pet is secure and in the hands of a staff member at all times. Your pet will receive one-on-one care and attention the entire time they are with us.” Salon tours are encouraged, and the salon is open-concept, allowing pet owners to view the grooming process. Owners can speak directly to groomers to share what clip they want for their pet, and most pets are finished and ready to go home in 1-2 hours.

Matson noted that pets at the salon “enjoy this innovative, non-traditional grooming experience” and that the focus is on the care of each individual pet, not just getting the grooming done. “Pets behave differently when they are calm and comfortable – at Cageless Grooming you will see many pets being groomed at the same time without a single bark,” Matson said. “The atmosphere we provide allows pets to feel at peace and actually enjoy their grooming time.” Matson was formerly a mobile groomer; now she works to bring that same one-on-one

interaction between groomer and pet to the salon. She’s opening a second salon in north Glendale in December, furthering the Cageless Grooming ideals. “I feel that the one on one interaction with the pets makes all the difference and allows the grooming experience be stressfree and enjoyable. Without the use of cages, it’s just the groomer and pet in a calm environment,” Matson said. “My husband and I brought this exact concept to the store front and opened up Cageless Grooming, so that everyone can experience how peaceful and calming grooming can be.” Matson said clients appreciate the salon’s attention to detail and extraordinary customer service. “We are a “tail above the rest” because we pay attention to your needs, your concerns, and we care about your grooming experience!” Matson said. Cageless Grooming is located at 2805 W. Carefree Hwy, Suite 113, in north Phoenix. Learn more at http://cagelessgrooming.com or call (602) 900-9995.

Achievement Medal. Simmons is a native of Snow Hill, NC and is married with two children and two grandchildren. Shana Edwards, a Prescott High School junior, will read her award-winning essay ‘Courage’. Edwards was the Voice of Democracy Arizona state winner and represented Arizona at the VFW’s national competition in Washington D.C. Arizona Voices will provide special music, and the annual Veterans Service Award will be presented. The Anthem Veterans Memorial has become nationally known, particularly for its unique structure that causes the sun’s rays to pass through the five Armed Services pillars’ ellipses to cast a solar spotlight over the mosaic of the Great Seal of the United States at exactly 11:11 a.m. on Nov. 11. Thousands of visitors attend the ceremony each year. The awardwinning memorial was dedicated Nov. 11, 2011 and received Arizona Historic Landmark status six months later. A high-definition LED screen will project the ceremony and photos/videos of veterans and will capture the 11:11 a.m. solar spotlight moment. Attendees will not be allowed to approach the Memorial during the ceremony or the 11:11 a.m. spotlight; the Memorial will open for visitors following the ceremony.

Seating at the ceremony is limited, so attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Parking in the lot nearest the Memorial is intended for veterans and those who cannot walk longer distances. More parking is available at the middle or lower lots, or at the Community Center, from where attendees can access the park via the footbridge. The Anthem Veterans Memorial is located in the Anthem Community Park, 41703 N. Gavilan Peak Pkwy. Learn more about the Memorial at OnlineAtAnthem.com/AVM.

THOR: RAGNAROK Dir: Taika Waititi Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeff Goldblum Monte’s Rating 3.50 out of 5.00 MONTE YAZZIE MOVIE COLUMNIST

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe Thor, the god of thunder, gets the short end of the hammer. Having two feature films and numerous cameos, Thor has been relegated to somewhat of a supporting character position within the heavy hitters in the Avengers. Iron Man is charismatic, Captain America is proud, Hulk is smash, and Thor, well, he has a hammer. Both stand-alone films, which weren’t very good, failed to establish the powerful son of Odin as much more than an ego-driven hero who doesn’t really understand, or learn, what his purpose is. The most memorable part of the Thor films was always his brother Loki, played by the scenestealing Tom Hiddleston. “Thor: Ragnarok” makes some exceptional changes; supported by the vision of talented director Taika Waititi, who helmed last year’s fantastic “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”, the film adds a welcome dose of humor and a structure that resembles something akin to a “buddy cop” movie. And who might Thor’s partner in heroics be? None other than the Incredible Hulk. “Thor: Ragnarok” is easily the best Thor movie and, surprisingly, the best Hulk movie Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is searching the worlds for his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), who has been missing since Loki (Tom Hiddleston) deviously found his way onto the throne in Asgard. Just as Thor begins to fix the mess his brother and

few former foes have created, his long exiled sister Hela (Cate Blanchett) returns to reclaim her rightful position as heir. Thor and Loki, while trying to fight Hela, are sent to a different realm and Hela returns to Asgard to wage war. Thor finds himself enslaved, positioned to fight as a gladiator in a tournament organized by a flashy showman who calls himself Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Director Taika Waititi has a way establishing a charming human quality within his stories, one that utilizes witty banter and silly premises while also composing wholly unique characters that seem to fit perfectly into every aspect. This is refreshingly established in different ways throughout “Thor: Ragnarok”; however, the most noticeable change is the use of humor in the film. Thor, who is typically on the receiving end of a good joke in “The Avengers” films, is the primary focus of most of the jokes here. It creates a playful tone, especially when the supporting cast gets involved in the jabs. And the supporting cast is a great mix of actors. Jeff Goldblum makes a wonderful appearance as Grandmaster, playing a flamboyant master of ceremonies. Goldblum is excellent in the role, chewing scenery with glee. Mark Ruffalo returns as Bruce Banner, providing a nice emotional quality in a few scenes to the character who here is mostly the raging Hulk. Tessa Thompson plays a member of Thor’s ragtag group and fits comfortably in

the mix with the heroes. Cate Blanchett plays the formidable villain. There are moments where the character offers a nice counterbalance to the heroes but also times when she isn’t given much to do except wait for the heroes to return and perform in an occasional fight. This use of Blanchett is an example of how “Thor: Ragnarok” struggles; the narrative operates in such a familiar way that it becomes rather tedious, we know the moves this kind of story is supposed to make. With so many superhero movies coming out during the year, it’s becoming easier to identify these plot devices. We know a big fight is supposed to happen, we know new characters will enter the journey, we know the hero must fall before they can rise again; with this film many of those devices are present and predictable. Still, “Thor: Ragnarok” is a surprisingly fun if altogether overly familiar. You’ll laugh quite a bit, you’ll get to see some pretty impressive effects, and Jeff Goldblum is here to make you remember how great he is at tailoring a character; all the entertaining check marks will be checked. However, change is on the horizon for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so enjoy the lightheartedness of “Thor: Ragnarok” because it may be the last laugh before things take a serious turn for the Marvel superhero friends in 2018.

Merrill Gardens hosting First Responders Appreciation Breakfast

ANTHEM – Local first responders will be the guests of honor at an Appreciation Breakfast hosted by Merrill Gardens at Anthem on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

The spirit of giving back is a vital part of the retirement community. “Merrill Gardens is a family owned company whose mission ‘is to provide an inspiring environment for our residents, families and team members where every life is defined by the possibilities’,” Thompson said. “We truly believe this and adhere to this mission in all aspects of being in the community.”

Design to Support Your Life SHEA STANFIELD ARTS COLUMNIST

Frida Kahlo wrote, “I am happy to be alive, as long as I can create”: A sentiment that local artist Kimberly Cothern can certainly relate to. Growing up, in Independence, Missouri, Kimberly never thought of herself as “creative”, even though she was extremely proficient at coloring inside the lines of her numerous coloring books with a fascinating variety of colors. But Kimberly found as she matured that what she was exceptional at was finding the adventure in life around her. At the age of 19, she picked up and moved to Arizona, where she found eventually found employment with Motorola as an Instructional Designer and Adult Educator. As she would come to realize, “being creative” could take on a multitude of shapes containing a variety of facets! Once Kimberly transitioned from corporate work, she ventured into classes in seed beadwork with a variety of nationally recognized teachers. Kimberly began to realize within the “order of process” there was a great deal of choice in “variations on a theme” and the adventure began into “creating.” Soon, Kimberly was treading into the arena of silversmithing. This adventure held a particular fascination with its technical aspects and was quite a bit more thrilling. She found holding a lit torch in her non-dominant hand while using her dominant hand to move solder and metal into various positions, without a “complete meltdown” a challenging and occasionally frustrating experience. She would tell people, “I melt metal, mostly on purpose.” Kimberly continued her quest for the next adventure in building her ever-growing skill set. As a result, she found the Mesa Arts Center, where she would continue to challenge her metal working sensibilities.

But life would hold a large adventure for her upon receiving a cancer diagnosis. Without a doubt, this required Kimberly’s full attention, as well as her creative determination for a period of time. When she was able to resume classes, she found she needed to “start all over again.” But this time

things were different. She found she wasn’t as intimidated by the torch…after all, she had beaten cancer! This newfound confidence found Kimberly approaching her jewelry making with a whole new confidence and her skill development took off. As Kimberly would relate, “The more relaxed I became, the fewer saw blades and drill bits I broke and my work became infused with quiet confidence.” This became the foundation for her company name, Simple Strength Studio. Simple Strength Studio design has an esthetic of clean modern lines and pieces you will love

to wear every day. Kimberly’s guiding philosophy is, “I would like the wearer of my jewelry to be reminded of their personal innate strengths.” The goal of Kimberly’s designs is to support their lives. Her keen eye for detail and sensibility for design is an asset in working with the environment in which she displays her jewelry. She spends a great deal of time working booth design and packaging of her product, as well. She wants her customers to feel as though they are shopping in a boutique, a place with special items for special people. Kimberly Cothern participates in a number of show in Arizona throughout the year. Her work can be found in Joseph Robertson Gallery in Prescott, Arizona, www.facebook.com/ Jo s e p h Ro b e r t s o n G a l l e r y. Ever seeking new adventure in materials and design has sent Kimberly into the realm of working with 24K gold; she has even alloyed her own rose gold. Kimberly continues to work and teach at Mesa Arts Center in Mesa Arizona, where the instructors are incredibly generous with their knowledge. She considers it a “place where creativity is born.” Kimberly Cothern will be participating in the Black Canyon City’s Hidden In The Canyon Artist Studio Tour, Nov. 17, 18, and 19, 2017. For more information, check the Black Canyon City Hidden in the Canyon Facebook page. Contact Arts Columnist Shea Stanfield at flowingquill@ yahoo.com.
