the Agua Fria National Monument in Yavapai County. As of Tuesday, the fire was 75 percent contained, according to the Bureau of Land Management. The Bull and Cedar Fires, located southeast of the Brooklyn Fire in remote areas, also are getting contained, with the Cedar Fire nearly completely contained and the Bull Fire about 50 percent contained. A community meeting was held Monday night at Canon School in Black Canyon City to provide information to local residents and answer questions regarding the fire. No structures have been threatened by the fire, and no evacuations or pre-evacuations have been ordered. The southernmost end of the fire is located approximately six miles northeast of Black Canyon City, and the BLM stated in a Monday afternoon update on the fire that firefighters are concentrated on the area northeast of Black Canyon City. The updates also stated that, to the north, the fire is predominantly south of the Bloody Basin Road and that firefighters conducted burn out operations east along the south side of the Bloody Basin Road and around Copper Creek Administrative Site.

Local residents have reported seeing flames from the fire at night. Heavy smoke has also been an issue, particularly in the past several evenings when it has been windy. However, structures are not threatened by the fire, and the BLM has reported throughout the fire that incident managers and local law enforcement are continually evaluating the fire situation in the areas closest to homes. “Citizens of New River, Desert Hills, Anthem, and Black Canyon City are not threatened by the fire at this time,” said Daisy Mountain Fire Department Battalion Chief Dave Wilson in a phone interview on Monday morning. Wilson noted that the fire is being constantly surveyed by air, with its spread being closely monitored. Rocky Gilbert, Operations Sections Chief of the Southwest Area Incident Management Team 1, said in a July 10 video update on the Brooklyn Fire that the fire activity was being monitored, with the southeast portion “looking fairly good.” “Overall, the team is getting in, getting a good handle on things, and we’ll have some scouting from a helicopter later today [Monday] to see where the fire lands,” Gilbert said. The fire is burning in difficult-toaccess terrain. Approximately 150 crew members are involved in the fire

containment efforts, including air and ground support. Over the weekend, the weather caused challenges to the firefighting efforts, with high winds and continued concerns of lightning strikes in the area. The Brooklyn Fire, also called the Brooklyn Complex, which incorporates the Bull and Cedar Fires, were all caused by lightning. Since Monday night, the monsoon weather has produced some positive effects for fighting the fire, with higher humidity, rain in some areas, and cloud cover. Drones in the vicinity of wildfires continue to be a significant problem in Arizona. Officials are once again trying to drive home the message “If you fly, we can’t!” Firefighting aircraft, which fly very low to the ground in smoky, lowvisibility conditions, cannot fly when a drone is in the airspace near them, due to the risk of a collision. As long as it’s in the area, a drone grounds all air attack on a wildfire, which can lead to the fire spreading. The community is asked to

please help spread the word and keep drones away from wildfires. The Southwest Area Incident Management Team 1 emphasized in a recent Facebook post that safety is their top priority and that they have to be sure the airspace is clear before they can fly over a wildfire. “Drones fly at low altitudes the same as our aircraft,” the Incident Management Team post stated. “That creates the potential for mid air collisions that could injure or kill our pilots or firefighters on the ground.” Keep updated on the Brooklyn Fire at http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5336.

Game and Fish develops proposed hunt guidelines NORTH VALLEY – The Arizona Game and Fish Department is seeking public comment on proposed hunt guidelines for the 2018-19 through 2022-23 hunting seasons.

The report also showed that zero households had lead or copper levels that were of “action level,” which is such a high concentrationof contamination it warrants immediate treatment and other requirements.

JUDY BLUHM

How was your hot dog? Well, I figured you might have eaten one over the past holiday weekend, since Americans ate approximately 150 million hot dogs on July 4th! And we spent about seven billion bucks on beer and hot dogs over the entire weekend! So maybe you had a beer with your hot dog? The average American eats sixty hot dogs a year, but a “competitive eater” named Joey Chestnut ate 72 hot dogs and buns in the annual Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. How long does it take to eat 72 hot dogs? Ten minutes. Dear Readers, do not try this at home, as it might result in severe choking and death! What are your favorite toppings? Mustard, ketchup, onions, chili, sauerkraut, peppers, relish? The “Top Dog” at the national Hot Dog and Sausage Council claims that a hot dog is not considered a sandwich, and is actually quite healthy. Okay, I agree with the first statement, not so sure about the “health” benefits of a wiener. He went on to say that “anything and everything makes a great topping” but “no way” does ketchup belong on a hot dog. Well, I suppose he is from Chicago, where this is common (silly). Count the ways we like to top our dogs! You can core out a jalapeno and stick the wiener inside the pepper and grill it, place it in a bun, add salsa and melted cheese (too spicy). For a healthy spin, grill the wiener with asparagus, place on a bun with diced tomatoes and cucumbers, with sliced avocado (no thanks). You can smother the dog with ketchup, relish,

pickles, onions and hot mustard (messy). But any way you like them, Americans must be crazy about hot dogs, since we eat about 20 billion a year! The “Sauce Boss” of Heinz Ketchup claims that Americans are “in love” with ketchup and to prove it spend about 800 million dollars a year on the heavenly, red sauce. But wait, that must be because the average

of baked beans, line up the condiments and have a cold beer. The “essentials” of summer eating never gets old, stale or boring. It’s easy and might even be “healthy.” Okay, well maybe not, but a hot dog on a summer day is definitely good for you. And with a little practice, patience and perseverance, you might be ready next year to join the annual hot dog eating

Any way you like them, Americans must be crazy about hot dogs, since we eat about 20 billion a year! American eats a whopping one pound of the red stuff a week! Yikes, is this even possible? Oh, and if we think ketchup is the “top condiment” it doesn’t hold a candle to mayonnaise. We buy 2 billion dollars’ worth of the creamy condiment a year, just to spread it on our bread or buns. What’s for dinner? Hot dogs, of course. Heat up the griddle, boil the water, open the can

contest. One giant bite for mankind? Eat like a champion, practice like a competitor and enjoy the one unifying American tradition that we all seem to agree upon. Hot dogs and beer belong together. Bon appetit. Judy Bluhm is a writer and a local realtor. Have a story or a comment? Email Judy at judy@ judybluhm.com.

with the uptick in traffic they have seen during the extreme heat, said Raye Gall, the operations director for the Desert Hills YMCA. “We have such a reach in the community with over 8,000 members,” said Gall in an email interview when explaining why her YMCA chapter sponsored the water drive. “I knew we could make an impact.” The Desert Hills YMCA has already collected over 50 cases of water, and hopes to have many more donated by July 15, she said. Residents in the Carefree area can donate water at the following locations: Light of the Desert Lutheran Church, Carefree Town Hall, Carefree Fire Department or

the Desert Foothills YMCA; the hours available for dropping off donations at the four locations vary. Light of the Desert is only accepting donations Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the Carefree Town Hall will only be accepting donations Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. However, the Carefree Fire Department and the YMCA will be accepting donations until the drive ends on Saturday, July 15. “The YMCA has a long history of identifying community needs and finding a way to fulfill those needs,” Gall said. “This is just one way we are able to do this.”

opportunity to learn about swim safety despite their financial situation. “It is important to create an outreach to communities that are underserved or do not have a history of being comfortable in the water,” Hubbard said. Hubbard encourages parents to enroll their children in swim lessons, as they can learn valuable skills. “Research has shown us that when a child goes to swim lessons, the child learns appropriate behavior around the pool, they learn to wait their turn, and then they learn their swimming skills in a good controlled teaching environment,” Hubbard said. Not only are swim lessons valuable for children, but they also teach parents about their children’s swimming capabilities. “You may think your child can swim but then you watch them in lessons and you come to the conclusion that they can swim two or three feet off the wall but they don’t know how to swim across the pool,” Hubbard said. Katie Smetana, Vice President of Operations at Valley of the Sun YMCA, stresses the importance of learning how to

swim. Not only does it ensure safety around water, but it also builds confidence. “Teaching children how to swim and be safe around water is one of the most important life skills parents can help their children learn,” Smetana said. Paul Schickel, Community Services Program Coordinator of the Daisy Mountain Fire

Department, believes that adult supervision, a barrier, and classes will ensure the safety of children around water. Adult supervision entails watching children as they swim without getting distracted. An adult should ask someone else in advance to answer the phone while they are monitoring children in the pool. “When everyone is watching, nobody is watching,” said Hubbard. “Pick one person to be the water watcher, and it only has to be for 10 to 15 minutes, and then trade and then someone else watches them.” In addition, a barrier that separates the pool from the house or yard can prevent children from gaining access to the pool. “It should be secure enough that children can’t go over it, under it, around it, or through it,” said Schickel. “Selfclosing and self-latching gates are recommended. Consider locking the gate when the pool area isn’t in use.” Schickel recommends taking Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and First Aid classes in order to be prepared in the event of a swim emergency. “Many times, drownings are silent, often there isn’t a cry for help or splashing water,” said Schickel. “Always be vigilant.”

elsewhere in the country with poor results, since they are made for slow speed locations such as parking garages and park entrances. “They are suggested to us all the time, but we haven’t seen one that could hold up under freeway-ramp traffic conditions,” Nintzel explained. Wrong-way driving is frequently linked to impairment, and highway safety agencies are also looking at more ways to deal with the problem of impaired drivers. “Impairment is usually the number one factor in most wrong way injury and fatal collisions,” DPS spokesperson Graves said. “Drinking and Driving is a community wide problem and the Arizona Department of Public Safety along with the Arizona Department of Transportation and the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety continue to work together to engage community support to address this issue.”

Black Canyon City Community Library hosting local beekeeper BLACK CANYON CITY – On Saturday, July 15, the Black Canyon City Community Library will welcome local apiarist, a.k.a. beekeeper, Barrie Dickerson for the latest Summer Reading Program event.

Something Infinitely Healing

Kelly Greenough Agent

AgWise Certified

SHEA STANFIELD ARTS COLUMNIST

Rachel Carson wrote in her book, The Sense of Wander, "There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature, from day to night, winter to spring." In the tradition of 17th-18th century illustrative artists/scientists, local artist Alexandra Bowers captures the extraordinarily unique shapes and delicately fine details in the flora and fauna of our expansive desert environment. She literally draws inspiration from organic forms, transposing them into elegantly captivating visual images through the wood burning process. Alexandra claims Scottsdale, Arizona as her hometown, growing up in a time when open space was treasured for its wildness and diversity. As a child, she remembers peering over the backyard wall across

a wonderland of exotic, lush, and endlessly textured shapes of the Sonoran Desert. Alexandra credits her parents with helping her form the foundation of her attention to detail and a love for the natural world. She and her sister grew up as frequent visitors to area museums, traveled around the world and participated in a performing arts group known as "Do, Re, Mi." They enthusiastically performed, singing and dancing, in classic Broadway hits such as Annie and The Wizard of Oz. In 2012, Alexandra graduated from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University, Tempe with her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Drawing. Soon after she became the first employee of a paint and wine bar, "The Brush Bar" in Old Town Scottsdale. It wasn't long before Alexandra had worked her way into the position of

In a very unique way, the heat of the iron ties her into the intensity of living in a desert. Her business "Iron Root" is where she decorates wooden utilitarian goods for home use, for example, wooden serving spoons, salad tongs, serving and carving boards. Alexandra is constantly exploring new applications for her art, 3D printing and fabric sculptures are a couple of options she has in mind for future creative pursuits. Her second passion is for research: “I consider myself a scientist in many ways. I investigate and research a ton when I create a piece of art. Part of this process is going 'off the beaten path' around Arizona, collecting specimens for observation and

The show will run at Practical Art, www.practical-art.com, through July 31, and can be viewed during business hours.

Firework display at Frontier Town (4th on the 1st) Dear Editor: I wanted to take a minute to address the lovely firework display featured at Frontier Town as last year it really fizzled but this year it really popped. We were truly blessed with not one but two grand finales and tons of high rockets and pops. I was a little disappointed though as last year we saw the most beautiful pink heart which was

missing from this display but the grand finale of red-white-andblue was spectacular. On a personal note much love to security who thought I was under 21 and really for $25 we had a few drinks, food and my son got a battery operated spinner. I also felt the band was pretty good with the addition of free mechanical bull rides in the hands of a great operator. Also to the lady who got the last $2

hotdog two people ahead I sure do wish I would have pushed you out of the way ha ha. So for those of you who missed it you really missed it. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July and hope this event happens next year for my family and community to enjoy. Jennifer Cave Creek

Monte’s Rating: 3.50 out of 5.00 MONTE YAZZIE MOVIE COLUMNIST

It was the summer of 2002: "Spider-Man" was swinging into theaters under the steady guidance of Sam Raimi. The result was impressive, a comicbook movie that would further define the blueprint of the superhero film. Two years later the sequel would come out, a film that I still hold as one of the top three best comic-book movies ever made. Fast forward and in a mere 15 years, audiences are getting their sixth overall film and their second reboot of the SpiderMan saga. While it would be easy to write this film off, we have seen a version of this story six times already, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is the first film to be controlled by Marvel Studios; it is also the first Spider-Man film to make the character a piece of the expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe. Director Jon Watts, coming off the acclaimed "Cop Car", takes control of the film this time around. Tom Holland steps into the role of Peter Parker, previously occupied by Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield; the noticeably younger version of Spidey is a welcome arrival, providing a tone for the film that can switch from high school comedy to action summer blockbuster with a simple change of costume. While "Spider-Man: Homecoming" plays all the safe bets and hits many of the same high notes as the earlier films, it importantly tries to add something different, some much needed life into the smaller elements that compose the web-slinging superhero. Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is just a kid in high school; he deals with many of the same concerns kids in high school have always faced: trying to fit in, trying to find a girlfriend, trying to deal

with the school bully, but Peter is also unlike many kids in high school because he's hiding an alter ego, one that was recruited by his famous friend Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Together, and with help from other Avengers, they fought to keep the superhero peace. Now, Peter is itching for his next opportunity to be a hero, but Tony is reluctant to give a teenager so much responsibility. Peter, wanting to prove his worth, goes looking for trouble and finds it in the shape of a weapons dealer with a winged suit named Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton). The film opens with a clever and funny nod to the film "Captain America: Civil War", where Spider-Man made his first appearance in a scene stealing cameo. In establishing the tone for this film, the introduction is perfection; it brings everything within this new Spider-Man universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the current while also establishing the atmosphere for the rest of the film, which is trying to very hard to emulate what John Hughes did best with his teenage comedy/dramas. Unfortunately, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" rarely excels beyond the standard superhero movie clichés. However, when it does excel, the film is genuinely exciting and whole lot of fun to watch. In developing the Peter Parker character, the film emphasizes, sometimes overly, that Peter is a kid. This, in the moments when the film transcends, does a great job of creating a dichotomy between Peter and his Avenging counterparts. At the end of the day what makes Peter vulnerable is his age, the fact that he still has a curfew, that he still needs to go to chemistry class, and that he is still fighting to find a

place in the teenage world. In other moments, Peter's youth is mishandled and provided two different defining characteristics; instead of making him look inexperienced and stubborn, the way all new superheroes learning their skills would look, the film instead makes him look silly and foolish. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man, hands down. Holland is filled with charm and screen charisma; there is an undeniable likability to this Peter Parker. Part of why this works is because the actor has an exceptional group of supporting characters around him. Jacob Batalon plays Peter's best friend with excitement, Donald Glover plays a would-be criminal who has great banter with Peter, Martin Starr's comic timing is put to great mumbling use as a teacher, and Zendaya has attitude to spare. But the real accomplishment here is Michael Keaton, who plays the winged Vulture as SpiderMan's primary baddie. Keaton is menacing throughout, playing a disgruntled working man forced to a life of crime because of the Avengers. In one scene Keaton and Holland face off in a car; it feels like one of the many tense scenes from Watt's film "Cop Car" in the way it just simply allows two good actors a moment to chew up scenery. 'Spider-Man: Homecoming" has its high moments of pure entertainment, but it also has its low moments when it does much of the same thing every other superhero and SpiderMan movie has done already. It's unfortunate because Peter Parker and Spider-Man have such rich emotional qualities. Still, it's nice to have Spider-Man playing well with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here's hoping we don't need another reboot in a few years.

Stranded on an Arizona highway? DPS program helps motorists in need MADISON CONNER CRONKITE NEWS

PHOENIX – One woman ran out of gas. Men in a pickup truck needed someone to change a tire on the car. Another man had one of his car’s tires blow up. State workers, like freeway Samaritans, came to their rescue on Interstate-17 with offers of cold bottled water to cool their thirst and free gas and tire changes to soothe their frustrations. The Arizona Department of Public Safety deploys roadside assistants to help motorists stranded along the state’s highways. People who call the emergency line or are spotted by DPS officers can get help. “We assist people that are broke down on the freeway. We

assist with accidents, help the troopers at times,” said Wendall Holland, who has been working as a roadside motorist assistant for four years. “Anybody that’s stranded on the freeway, we assist them and help them get back on the freeway and to their destination.” The crews patrol highways

across Arizona all day, every day, equipped with drinking water, gasoline, tools and tanks of compressed air. The program helped nearly 93,000 motorists in the last year who were temporarily stranded because they failed to fill up a gas tank, replace worn-out tires or make sure tires are properly inflated to the proper pressure. Summer’s scorching temperatures makes their jobs a little tougher, but the crews push through. “My main concern when I get out to someone is their safety,” said Holland, a former DPS officer. Stranded drivers can call 911 for help from DPS or to report another motorist in trouble. DPS, the Maricopa Association of Governments, and AAA Arizona administer the program.

Pet of the Week: Ellie Meet Ellie, a Special Needs kitty available for adoption from Anthem Pets Animal Rescue. This young girl is the momma cat to kittens Alfie and Jace. She is new to the comforts of indoor living and is sweet, but shy. Ellie very much wants to be petted and part of the family, but it will take time for her personality to shine through. The pupil in Ellie's left eye is always constricted, so it is possible that she is blind in that eye. She likes calm dogs, but we don't know if she gets along with other cats. Ellie needs just the right family to give her a second chance. A sponsor is paying her adoption fee. Ellie has been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. She is with a foster, so please fill out a Meet & Greet request online at https://form.jotform. com/70376147295967 to set up a time to meet Ellie. Looking for more pets? Visit anthempets.org and view photos of adoptable cats and dogs.
