Old Town mixed-use zoning changes BY CAROLYN DRYER Peoria Times Editor

Old Town is now organized into a new mixed-use district that makes it clear Peoria City Council has a plan to revitalize and change the look of the oldest area of the city. Council approved an Old Town MixedUse District zoning code amendment at its February 5 meeting that calls for two distinct areas. Bounded by Monroe Street on the south, Grand Avenue on the east, Peoria Avenue on the north and 85th Avenue on the west, the district is split between Core

Commercial Mixed Use (CCM) and Core Residential Mixed Use (CRM). The CRM lies mainly between Monroe and just north of Jefferson Street on the west and Monroe and Madison Street on the east. The CCM lies mainly along Peoria and between 85th and Grand, but also veers toward the middle down to Monroe between 83rd Avenue and 84th Drive. A look at the map on page 2 shows the exact borderlines between CRM and CCM zoning areas.

Changes to the CCM:

• Clarified that restaurants with drive-thrus are not permitted

• Added indoor recreation/entertainment —already permits indoor theaters • Added microbrewery or distillery • Added hotel/motel • Added personal services (tanning salon, beauty shop, massage establishment) • Added tattoo and body piercing studio — subject to CUP (conditional use permit) and separation criteria • Removed single-family residential (from CCM only) • Removed 200-foot residential setback restriction from bar/tavern uses

During a brief presentation at the February 5 city council study session, City Attorney Vanessa Hickman gave a summary of an ordinance the city could adopt to ban texting while driving. She said Arizona does not have a state law regarding cell phone use while driving by individuals 18 years of age or older. An ordinance would give police the authority to stop drivers and issue a citation. The fine as proposed at the study session would be $250 for the first offense. Hickman said the fine would be more severe for repeat offenses.

Opinion

The secret to college success? Video games College students need to play more video games. Seriously. New research shows that gaming actually improves cognitive and social skills. It’s one of the most accessible, inclusive activities for students. And, unbeknownst to many, professional video gaming has become a big business, so job opportunities are swelling. In other words, far from being just a virtual reality, esports teach people how to operate in the real world. Colleges can play a role in preparing students for this industry by investing resources in video gaming and related programs. Video games have long received a bad rap. The stereotypical gamer is a young man, isolated in a dark basement and staring at a screen. Plenty of critics argue that video games have few practical applications and even stunt intellectual growth. But that conventional wisdom has been proven wrong. Many games actually improve attention, memory, and decision-making, according to an analysis of video game studies published in the American Journal of Play. Video games also improve “computational thinking,” a problem-solving approach that is becoming increasingly crucial in the professional world. It involves breaking down a problem, identifying patterns, and developing solutions. A 2016 study by researchers at Northwestern University and Columbia University found that games in which players explore, build their own world, and set their own goals are particularly good at cultivating this type of thinking. Meanwhile, the gaming industry offers a wide array of career opportunities.

City Council next meeting February 19 Peoria City Council meets Tuesday, February 19 at council chamber, 8401 W. Monroe St. A study session begins at 5 p.m. while the regular meeting begins at 7 p.m.

COmmeNTArY

Henry C.Foley President New York Institute of Technology Competitive video gaming leagues, in which players face off in regulated tournaments, generated $655 million in revenue in 2017 and likely brought in more than $900 million in 2018. So there will be a slew of jobs to fill — from marketers and consultants to communications specialists and video game designers. Some universities are already exposing students to this growing field by setting up esports teams. Illinois’ Robert Morris University founded the first varsity esports team in 2014. Since then, more than 100 U.S. schools have joined the National Association of Collegiate Esports. My own school, New York Institute of Technology, recently started a team.

There’s plenty of room for more schools. After all, the NCAA has more than 1,200 members. Additionally, colleges could create and open up campus spaces dedicated to esports at all levels of competition — including intramural or club esports teams. Unlike traditional athletic programs that require extraordinary athleticism, virtually all students can participate on this playing field. And since esports require very little equipment, they’re more affordable than many other activities. Only a relative handful of students will ultimately become professional gamers, a lucrative career that can pay millions of dollars per year. But many students could work in the wider esports industry, as long as schools equip them for success. Several schools are leading the way. Becker College in Massachusetts, for example, offers a bachelor of science in Esports Management. Many schools have video design programs, which can set students up for well-paid careers. Esports careers abound in the medical field, too. Here at NYIT, we have a Center for eSports Medicine that employs a year-round team of physicians and physical therapists to assist the school’s esports athletes and conduct research on the medical implications of competitive gaming. Far from being a waste of time, video games offer significant social, cognitive, and economic benefits. They prepare people for real-world scenarios. It’s up to colleges and universities to up their game and prepare students for this booming industry.

PUPC hosts meeting March 12 Peoria United Parent Council will be meeting at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, and Wednesday, April 17 in the training room at the Peoria Unified School District Administration Center, 6330 W. Thunderbird Road. The March 12 meeting will cover Arizona Legislature updates and PUPC elections and the April 17 meeting will discuss district sports and e-sports.

ASU selects Peoria as sustainability partner BY CAROLYN DRYER Peoria Times Editor

The city of Peoria has been selected as the community partner for Project Cities — a new, innovative program at Arizona State University. Over the course of the 2019-2020 academic year, ASU students and city of Peoria staff will execute several applied projects that address environmental, social and economic challenges. Project Cities, a program aiming to connect university resources with realworld municipal sustainability challenges, is administered under ASU’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability and the Sustainable Cities Network. Through this win-win-win partnership, Project Cities will provide valuable applied learning opportunities for ASU students and faculty, who will co-create innovative, implementable and interdisciplinary solutions with Peoria’s decision-makers with the ultimate goal of improving quality of life for Peoria residents.

“This is a pivotal moment in time where the opportunity to innovate and advance sustainability in our communities is no longer a ‘nice to have’ but a ‘must have,’” said Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat in a letter of support for the program. “It is because of this that the city of Peoria fully recognizes that solving some of our most pressing challenges cannot be accomplished solely on our own, but rather through solid world-renowned partners such as Arizona State University.” “This is an exciting partnership,” said City Manager Jeff Tyne. “We are looking forward to working with students to tap into their creativity, energy and enthusiasm as we search for solutions in these critical areas.” Students and Peoria city staff will commence their work together in August. The partnership is slated for the 2019-2020 academic year, with the possibility of extending up to an additional year for continuing projects that build on past semesters’ work. Program manager is Jay Davies,

We will get new perspectives that will allow us to move forward. We’re working out how to approach that,” Estrada said. “We haven’t decided what’s the best course or a combination on those.” She said what ASU is now doing is looking at Peoria’s projects, the goals and lining them up with students in the relevant projects – it could be public service and community solutions as an example. Estrada said, “We’re working with ASU and waiting for the different colleges to be identified. It could be the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.” The School for the Future of Innovation in Society is another possibility, she said. “We have different projects and each has to be paired up with the right student

TeXTING frOm 1 Tim Eiden, marketing and communication manager for the city, said any public education effort on a texting ordinance “must be a community wide effort” and be accomplished in “a very creative way. Get the community involved in interactive communication. Lead by example.” Hickman introduced Thomas Adkins, the city’s government liaison with the Arizona Legislature, who told council five bills were introduced February 5 on texting, but they had not been heard in committee at that time. Adkins warned that whatever passed may not look the same as the original bill. What this means for Peoria, Adkins said, there is a strong possibility

whatever the city adopted would be pre-empted by state law. Adkins also posed the question, “How do we fix it to be the same as the state if it conflicts with state law?” Adkins said before the city adopted a text ordinance, perhaps it should wait and see what happens at the state Legislature. “It could happen in May or June; hopefully, a month or two sooner,” Adkins said. “It’s so early right now. We won’t know until the governor signs one of the bills into law.” Mayor Cathy Carlat said, “So, it seems to make sense to wait until what happens at the state level.” Although the public could not comment during the study session, a member of the audience patiently waited until the public comments portion of

the regular council meeting to voice her concern about the city council’s decision to postpone adopting a ban on texting while driving. Linda (last name omitted) told council, “It’s obvious to me, whether

It’s fun to take advantage of that and to have a partner like ASU to help move plans forward. “How do we stay ahead to shape the future? We can keep doing what we’re doing, status quo, but we’ll be ill prepared for a rapidly changing society.” Ranked as the No. 1 place to live in Arizona by Money Magazine and the only Arizona city named as one of the best cities in the U.S. by Yahoo! Finance, the city of Peoria is currently home to more than 171,000 residents. The city enjoys a reputation as a family-oriented, active community with an exceptional quality of life. Peoria entertainment and recreational amenities include popular attractions such as Lake Pleasant, a large network of trails and open space, community parks, recreation centers, community theater, libraries, pools, and the spring training home for the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners.

their library programs have a participation rate 35-percent higher than peer libraries. The policy recommendation was to “maximize existing budget and service levels.’ In youth and adult special interest classes, expenditures to maintain the classes are twice as much as revenues. Over a five-year period ending in 2018, youth special interest classes brought in an average of $131,000 annually, while expenditures were an average of $262,247 annually. For that same time period, adult special interest classes brought in an average of $27,392 annually, while expenditures were an average of $50,000 annually. In the area of adult and youth sports at various parks in the city, one strategy was clear: Eliminate low participation programs.

Western Maricopa Education Center (West-MEC)--a public career technical education district--will host Hans Meeder, president of the National Center for College and Career Transitions, from 8 to 11 a.m. Thursday, February 21 for a workshop on Career Connected Learning. The workshop will be held at WestMEC, 5405 N. 99th Ave., Glendale. “Our collective hope is that all students will one day enjoy economic independence. The path to such is an educational system that ensures that all students learn the skills they need for the careers they want. This requires ongoing collaboration between employers and educators,” said West-MEC Assistant Superintendent of Adult Education and Professional Development John Mulcahy. He said West-MEC offers four think tanks a year and uses them “to tackle some workforce development or education issue and either bring in a state or nationally recognized expert.” Mulcahy said the audience is composed typically of educators, businesses and elected officials. The educators are secondary and post-secondary mostly, he added. The format is to have a particular topic and the audience weighs in, asks questions and give opinions. “I would estimate a quarter of the crowd is businesses,” Mulcahy said. “They’re interested in an educated workforce. Our goal at West-Mec is to educate the workforce to help students find a job they enjoy and can achieve success with. In order for that to happen, we need to have schools like West-MEC that teaches skills students need to be successful in the world of work.” Mulcahy said Hans Meeder has long been connected with career and technical education, and served as an aide in Congress. Career Connected Learning is centered on the concept that K-12, postsecondary, and business institutions should collaborate together rather than operate in silos. More than work training, Career Connected Learning readies students with life skills through a variety

of strategies, such as career and technical education, career academies, career pathways, career development, employer work-based learning, and STEM education. Meeder, a nationally-recognized expert and published author on the topic, will share the latest relevant data and promising innovations during the workshop at West-MEC. Through presentations and interactive discussion, participants will develop a deeper sense about how they, as local leaders from business, education, and the broader community, can help facilitate regional and statewide conversation about the future of Career Connected Learning in Arizona.

West Valley overcoming STEM biases at school BY CONNOR DZIAWURA PeoriaTimes Staff Writer

A group of West Valley girls saw a lack of representation and diversity in the fields of robotics, so they took matters into their own hands. Now known as the West Valley GEMS, which stands for Girls Empowering, Mentoring and Supporting, the group consists of current and former robotics students of the team that now teaches at the newly opened Edison School of Innovation. The GEMS dedicate their time and expertise to mentor younger students and spark an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) throughout the community at large, especially in other girls. “We didn’t see as much in IQ (plastic robotics) because – that’s the younger kids – everyone’s doing that; they’re kind of learning the basics of robotics. But when we moved to EDR, which is the metal robots (for older, more advanced students), we see that it’s mostly boys. There’s not

a lot of girls there,” explained Sidney Casillas, a ninth-grade student at Avondale’s Arizona Agribusiness and Equine Center – Estrella Mountain who volunteers as one of the GEMS. “It’s kind of disheartening – I guess would be the right word – because it’s kind of hard to bond with the boys because they don’t want to talk to us. So, I mean, it’d be nice to have those other girls there who want to speak to us and can talk about the struggles that we’ve been through.” The GEMS group was solidified last fall, though its roots date back much earlier. REC Foundation and VEX Robotics host Girl Powered events and encourage local groups to partner and hold their own. The students that now comprise GEMS got involved two years ago, and since then have held visits to Glendale’s START @ West-MEC campus and REI’s Litchfield Park distribution center. According to the Glendale- and Peoria-serving K-8 STEM charter

school’s principal, Cheryl Rose, successful Girl Powered events led them to increase the frequency, and following the school’s opening in August, the GEMS became an official group. The group also applied for – and was awarded – an $8,000 STEM grant from Grand Canyon University (GCU). Its volunteers will present to GCU in May about how the grant has been used thus far. The West Valley GEMS members participate in other events, too. Four mentors attended the University of Arizona’s Connect2STEM event, which was held at the downtown Phoenix medical campus on January 26. In the near future, the group will participate in Glendale Public Library’s Technology and Do-ItYourself Fair, which is part of the Arizona SciTech Festival. The free event is noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, February 16. Ten days later, the school will hold a community fair in conjunction with Harvest Church. (The Edison School of Innovation is located on the church grounds at the northwest corner of 83rd and Northern avenues.) From 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, February 26, the event will feature businesses from the community, a Goodwill recycling drive and fundraiser, a blood drive and more. The GEMS will be there, too. “It’s just another opportunity for the GEMS to let families know what they’re doing, the programs that they offer, because they feel very strongly about girls being involved in STEM,” Rose explained. In late March, another Girl Powered event is planned at the START @ West-MEC campus, and, in April, the GEMS volunteered to help with the Kadima.Ventures’ Innovation Fair 2019 at the Phoenix Convention Center, though they are waiting for more information. That event is scheduled for Thursday, April 4, and Friday, April 5. With more resources now, thanks to GCU’s grant, Rose says GEMS is ramping up. In June the group will hold a summer camp and next school year it will conduct biweekly meetings.

“We’re kind of in that birthing stage where we’ve done a little bit and now we’re getting ready to just go full force and get everything going full time,” Rose said. Teams often travel to robotics competitions, too. VEX Robotics hosted a Night at the Museum competition in Chantilly, Va., in January, and the Prescott Mile High VRC Qualifying Competition MS/HS was earlier this month. On February 16, some students will participate in the Google VEX Turning Point High School Tournament in Sunnyvale, Calif., and in April the CREATE U.S. Open Robotics Championship’s VRC High School Division in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

The stigma against girls in robotics shows even at competitions, according to AAEC-EM ninth-grader Kaitlyn Strickland. “We go to robotics competitions, and we won second place but no one, not even the sixth-place team, would want to pair with us just because they

Rose added, “It’s one of the things that they wanted to do, is overcome that bias in the robotics world.” Casillas noted that one of her fellow GEMS members was on a high school robotics team, but was never asked about her skills and was instead assumed to serve as an organizer. Rose chimed in, “So she quit, because she decided that that’s not why she joined.” Now mostly in high school, the girls who comprise GEMS won’t always be around, though. So, inspiring younger students to eventually take the reins is important. “They’re currently seventh-grade students that are in the robotics (program at Edison School of Innovation),” Rose said. “They’re learning from the high school students so that they can take over the mentoring as they get older. It’s always wanting to make sure that we’re partnering students together – and with older and younger students – so that we can maintain the mentoring program over the years.”

Common Sense Media director says programs designed to help students in the digital age BY CAROLYN DRYER Peoria Times Editor

Ilana Lowery’s first words during an interview were, “Common Sense Media is an advocate for families in the digital age. We advocate for digital well-being, equity in learning.” Lowery, a former journalist who spent eight years with Independent Newspapers, then 23 years as an editor with the Phoenix Business Journal, left the world of newspapers and moved to a different vocation, what she called “more impactful than a business publication.” “News and media literacy from an education standpoint,” she said, “and I just felt it was something I needed to do.” She is now the director of the Arizona office of Common Sense Media, a nonprofit, “doing what I feel needs to be done. It’s a good organization, something I believe in. I really wanted

school, many of them do not have the equipment at home to continue their digital learning process. “How do you get your kids to put down devices?” Lowery said. “These devices have permeated every aspect of our lives.” She said many classes in school expect homework to be completed using digital devices. But those same digital devices leave the door open for cyberbullying. With the resources available from Common Sense, Lowery said students would learn how to handle those situations. Lowery said she is looking forward to getting out and meeting with families. But first, she has to make her case to school districts, organizations that support those school districts, and teachers, who will eventually either teach the curriculum offered by Common Sense Media, or at least be using the resources available at Common Sense Media. Lowery said, “Three hundred educators in Arizona have signed up to use the tools and resources, not necessarily curriculum.” She noted #device-free dinner. “The PSAs (public service announce-

ments) we have are really funny,” she said. “We’re here, we’re available for families to provide resources.” So, what exactly does Common Sense Media provide? The information sheet says Common Sense Media offers the largest, most trusted library of independent age-based and educational ratings and reviews for everything kids want to watch, play, read and learn. The content is then distributed through the Common Sense website and through more than 25 major media distribution partners, including Apple, AT&T, Comcast, Netflix, Spectrum, Target and Univision. Common Sense Education provides a K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum that “equips students with the knowledge and skills to think critically, behave safety and participate responsibly online.” As Lowery said,” Common Sense Kids Action works with policymakers, industry leaders, legislators and a grassroots community of concerned parents and teachers to ensure every child has the opportunity to thrive.” To learn more, contact Lowery at ilowery@commonsense.org.

Landlord-tenant disputes usually involve due dates Each month, the Maricopa County Justice Court hears thousands of cases involving disputes on rental properties. Most of those cases involve a disagreement about the rent payment. In some cases, the issue is over repairs that were not completed by the landlord. If a landlord fails to complete certain repairs, a tenant can take action without involving the court. For more information, look up the Arizona Landlord Tenant Act. Before ruling on a case, each judge carefully reviews the entire case and ensures the rights of both parties are protected and the laws are properly enforced. The Manistee Justice Court is no exception. Our docket for evictions is

LESSONS FROM THE BENCH

Judge Donald Watts Manistee Justice Court quite heavy. Even with a heavy docket, I take the time to review each case and make rulings on the individual merits. In some cases, I order a trial to allow more time for the merits to be heard. You may ask yourself, “Then why is a trial not held is all cases?” The answer is simple. In many cases, a trial is not necessary; sometimes an agreement is stipulated by both parties

before the hearing. Other times, the parties just need the law explained and sometimes the tenant moves out in the middle of the night. When this happens, the landlord needs a court order to take possession so they can re-rent the apartment. Often a hearing is all that is needed when the matters are straightforward. Just because a hearing is straightforward, each person is still afforded the time to share what he or she wants to do with the court. Often, litigants represent themselves and other times they hire attorneys to represent them. In any event, you should always consult an attorney for proper legal advice. Many attorneys special-

ize in landlord-tenant issues and can be found on the internet. During the hearing, often the tenant tells me their rent is not due until the fifth of the month. This is hardly ever the case, but it is always a point of discussion. One of my requirements in the hearing is that the rental contract is brought to court so I can make rulings on what it says. Once I review the contract, more often than not it says the rent is due on the first and late fees do not begin until the fifth. Lesson from the bench: Be sure and review your contracts before you sign them and before you come to court. Join Judge Watts’ e-newsletter at www.DonaldWatts.Info.

Shianne and Sam Pineda wanted a way to turn grief into hope after losing a son last year and decided to find a way to give back to Banner Thunderbird Medical Center for taking care of their family. “My son Xayne was born in January 2018 and we had a safe sleep accident and we lost him May 28,” Shianne Pineda said during a recent phone interview. “He was on life support for six days before he passed away.” The first couple of months after Xayne’s passing, the couple struggled with the pain but wanted to do something to show their appreciation for what the hospital had done for them. They decided to try to find a way to keep Xayne’s memory alive while assisting Banner Hospital for caring for their family.

“During Xayne’s time on life support and after his passing, the nurses and doctors at Banner Thunderbird were amazing to us. We had one nurse who stayed with us the entire time and became like family to us,” Pineda said. “We contacted the hospital about how we could help and they recommended Pillow Pets.” Pillow Pets are a brand of stuffed toys with Velcro straps that allow them to be changed from a decorated pillow into a stuffed animal. Pineda and her husband decided to ask for donations of pillow pets that they were hoping to donate to Banner Thunderbird on Xayne’s first birthday. They created a Facebook page asking family members to donate a pillow pet in honor of Xayne. Their original goal was they were hoping to get 30 Pillow Pets, but were overwhelmed with the response. “We had hoped to get about 30 donated before January 26, 2019 in honor

spring training games in 2018, more than 200,000 fans walked through the gates. In addition to spring training, 193 additional events brought in 210,000 patrons. It is, according the Sefton’s staff, a major economic engine with $45 million in local impact. It is home to the city’s Halloween Monster Bash, Dolly Sanchez Easter Egg Hunt and the July All-American Festival.

The staff summary concluded the park situation in Peoria is healthy and all are

of Xayne’s birthday,” Pineda said. “We ended up getting about 280 that we donated to the Banner PICU (Pediatric intensive care unit), coming from as far away as Minnesota and Missouri.” The Pinedas, along with their other son, Xander, donated the pillow pets January 26 to Banner Thunderbird, where they will be given to children in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). “Hopefully, they can give the kids a smile when they are in the hospital,” Pineda said. “We actually got the chance to hand out six of them to kids in the PICU and the smiles on their faces made it all worth the work.” Pineda said they plan to do something every year to keep Xayne’s memory alive, but is unsure if it will be pillow pets again or something else.

“We really haven’t’ thought about it because of the overwhelming response we got from this,” Pineda said. “They had another recent drive for sheets, so we will reach out soon and see what we can do to assist them in any way we can.” Pineda said that while she is happy to help Banner Thunderbird after the way they treated her family, she said the donation also helped her family, if only a little bit. “It has helped us more than most things and it made us really happy every time we got a pillow pet in the mail,” Pineda said. “Every time we got a pillow pet it came with condolences and it showed that Xayne was being remembered and it just warmed my heart to see the outpouring of love.”

heavily used. Mayor Cathy Carlat asked about retrofitting older parks for dog parks. Although there was no commitment from Sefton, there was a discussion about surrounding neighbors and the need for dog parks. Next year, Sefton said, the city will focus on safety in parks. Five park rangers are on staff, with the department requesting two more next year. Councilmember Carlo Leon asked if that was enough to serve the 34 parks. Sefton said his staff is monitoring the situation. He said if neighbors observe misbehavior, they still need to call local police, saying, “We’re never going to have 24-hour park rangers.” Trails and way finding signs are being funded 100 percent by Maricopa Association of Governments, Sefton said. The city just received another grant to pay for trail signage from Happy Valley Road to Jomax Road and from New River to Agua Fria River. Although no specific time was given by Sefton for trails and way finding at those locations, he estimated they would be completed in approximately 18 months. Councilmember Vicki Hunt asked about trees and the urban forest, then was reassured to know the city has a program to plant trees in areas along the trails.

Mayor Cathy Carlat said, “There’s something about having a neighborhood restaurant that you can call your own. Whether it’s the aroma of classic dishes cooking or the sight of familiar faces, there’s comfort in knowing a place exists where you can unwind and be among friends. CheezHeadz is that place.” Peoria resident Craig Maynard opened CheezHeadz at the northeast corner of 99th Avenue and Beardsley Road in 2012. Although Maynard has lived in the city of Peoria since orange trees lined the blocks, he said he wanted to bring a taste of his family’s Midwestern roots into his local eatery. With wood paneled walls and the everprominent green, white, and gold motif of the Green Bay Packers, Maynard smiles when sharing that he was going for his “grandpa’s basement” when decorating the restaurant. Maynard said his passion for cooking dates back to his childhood, where he mastered and experimented with his mother’s and grandmother’s classic recipes.

Maynard translated this passion into a family restaurant known for having “winning pizza” and what is hailed as the best “CheezHeadz CheezSteak” in the Valley. Carlat said, “While the food is sure to satisfy the hungriest of appetites, the terrific sense of community is what really makes this restaurant stand apart.” CheezHeads offers open-mic and trivia game nights throughout the week to encourage people to laugh. Live bands on the weekend get folks out of their seats to dance in between bites. Carlat said, “Maynard’s inviting and warm personality has led to an environment where families, friends, and neighbors can indulge in both great company and great food. He credits CheezHeadz success to a supportive Peoria community, and shares that when you ‘stand by people and they feel part of something, good things happen.’” To learn more about this local favorite, visit www.cheezheadz.com. Residents are encouraged to stay up to date with Mayor Carlat by following her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers finds home at Park West BY CAROLYN DRYER Peoria Times Editor

Michael Wolfe feels right at home inside Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers. The manager of the sports bar/restaurant has lived in the West Valley since he moved to Arizona from Florida 18 months ago. “I lived on the East Coast my whole life and came across this company. They were doing real good things,” Wolfe said. “So, I came out west.” He now serves as manager of Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers’ newest West Valley location at Park West, 9828 W. Northern Ave., Suite 1700. Wolfe has been in the restaurant business 28 years, he said, with many different companies: Hooters for 10 years; Ruby Tuesday’s six years; owned his own Spice Rack three years; and five years with TGI Friday’s. Wolfe said, “We are a sports bar and burger place, but we try to please as many people as possible, offer a little bit for everybody.” He said everything is fresh, not frozen. Everything is made in house. “A lot of love, not just a regular sports bar,” Wolfe said. It’s not all business for Wolfe, either. He said he and a friend, Greg White, co-founded Project Green in Knoxville, Tenn. Every business in Knoxville sells its waste to the University of Tennessee, which has it processed into bio-diesel fuel. Wolfe said all of the metro buses, and garbage trucks have to use that fuel. Looking around his favorite spot at Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers, Wolfe said. “This has been my career.” He said he was a guest speaker three years with the hospitality department at Florida International University. He graduated with an architectural engineering degree. “I never used it a day in my life,” he said. “This is not just a job. It’s my life.” Wolfe said he has had two days off since November 21. “When you love what you do, it’s not just work,” he said. “I don’t have a team,” Wolfe said. This is my family. These are the people

I spend 14 hours a day with.” Looking around the bar and restaurant, it is easy to understand why sports enthusiasts would be drawn inside: 35 flat-screen 55-inch HD TVs mounted overhead in every available space. That’s not including the two TVs in the men’s room. But it is not just sports fanatics who choose to dine at Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers. Families are welcome as well. The restaurant seats 265 inside and 65 on the east patio. Once the north patio is constructed, it will seat 120 and 15 more TVs will be mounted outside. The burgers are half-pound handformed from fresh ground chuck and cooked to personal choice. There is also a gluten-free menu for allergy-sensitive diners. Hours are 11 a.m. to midnight weekdays; 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Happy Hour is 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. During Happy Hour, the All-American Burger with fries or chips is also sold at a reduced price.

Button collectors hosting state convention BY CHRISTINA FUOCO-KARASINSKI PeoriaTimes Staff Writer

Martha Simmons of Glendale, Judy Thornhill of Avondale, Janis Adams of phoenix, Jeni Hicke of Cave Creek, Janet parker of Sun City and nancy Craig of phoenix sometimes buy clothing just for the buttons. They also decorate their outfits using the buttons they collect. (West Valley View photo by Christina Fuoco-Karasinski)

2019 spring training

When Martha Simmons was a young girl in Ajo, her mother, Barbara Yarberry, collected buttons. Her mother found them so fascinating she founded the Button Hooks Club. “I was born in Ajo and there wasn’t a lot for women to do,” said Simmons, who now lives in Glendale. “We had a friend who owned the flower shop there. My mother was really bored, so she would visit different people. We became acquainted with Mary Anderson, who helped my mom found the Button Hooks Button Club.” Simmons is continuing their hobby as a member of the Button Hooks Club, which meets the first Saturday of the month at Good Samaritan Society, Peoria Good Shepherd, 10333 W. Olive Ave., Peoria. The group is hosting the Arizona State Button Society Convention on 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, February 16, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, February 17, at the Hilton Garden Inn, 11460 W. Hilton Way in Avondale. Themed “Wild West Roundup,” the convention will feature educational exhibits, competitions following the guidelines from the National Button Society, and mini workshops. It is open to the public for $5 admission. Button collecting is a longtime favorite. In 1938, the National Button Society was formed. During the Great Depression, button collecting became an inexpensive distraction. There are five clubs in Arizona — one in Tempe, two in Tucson, one

in Peoria and one in Prescott. The Button Hooks Button Club is celebrating its 40th anniversary. The ladies of the group call buttons “miniature art.” “We even buy clothes just for the buttons,” said Judy Thornhill of Avondale. “The buttons have neat material like pearl, black glass, celluloid and resin. There are hundreds of materials that buttons are made of.” Many companies created buttons as well, including Colt Firearms, which manufactured them in 1932 for approximately 14 months. Thornhill showed select buttons that are considered made by Colt. “We have a lot of what they wall ‘wanna-bees’ or hopefuls,” she said. “There are several different things that distinguish a Colt quality.” More than 4.5 million buttons were manufactured during a 14-month period. One button is marked Colt, a two-part rouge button. Other buttons can only be authenticated when found on a Colt salesman’s sample card, or Colt patent or if their history is documented. Member Nancy Craig of Phoenix is a button artist, who sold a button for $252. It normally would sell for $5. Jeni Hicke of Cave Creek specializes in button purses. She was turned on to the club through a speaker at Paradise Valley Community College. “She encouraged me to come to this meeting,” she said. “I particularly like whistle buttons.” For more information, contact perryva@gmail.com or janiswood@ aol.com.

Film festival hopes to enlighten guests about Judaism BY TAYLOR O’CONNOR PeoriaTimes Staff Writer

The Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival is continuing its mission of sharing the breadth of Jewish content from across the globe by screening films at three Harkins Theatres, through Sunday, February 24. GPJFF executive director Barry Singer said he hopes people gain “an appreciation of the worldwide presentation of the Jewish culture.” One of these films is Golda’s Balcony: The Film, which will have its second public screening at the festival, according to producer David Fishelson. Originally a Broadway hit, Golda’s Balcony comes to the GPJFF on Sunday February 24 after 15 years of being “locked in a vault,” Fishelson says. The piece is about the life of Golda Meir, Israel’s first female prime minister. Fishelson called it a powerful story about politics and feminism that covers Meir’s struggle in an artistic way. Fishelson said the film gives a fair, balanced view surrounding the controversies to the birth of Israel as well as a voice to the Jewish people. “I want the audience to understand the perspective. It deserves to shine.” Controversies, Fishelson specifies, include the Zionists creating a new vision for many Jewish people in Europe during the early 1900s, The 1948 Arab War and the many divisions of Palestine and Israel, as well as the Yom Kippur War in 1973. The collaboration came about when Fishelson contacted Singer fairly late in the selection process, however, “we felt this was an opportunity to show an important performance by the original Broadway production star.” Golda’s Balcony, The Film is one film out of the 20 being screened within the festival that Singer and his coworkers select. A few others include Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy, Budapest Noir and Shine. Choosing the films is a year-long process. The festival is held in February, and immediately the process

begins again, Singer says. By March, the festival is looking for new films to feature and planning next year’s event. Linda Mittelman and Lois Rubin, the creative directors, prescreen from 100 to 200 films. The festival screening committee receives the films from distributors across the country. Before the team can screen the films, it must receive permission from the distributors because it’s not free to screen films for public performances. Distributors handle all of the arrangements. Then, the screening committee watches one film a week and are usually done by mid-September, Singer said. The process is very democratic, with the committee voting on the final films and the highest-voted films are featured. After the screening and selection process is complete, Singer said advertising and program planning is the next step for the festival. The event, which attracts 10,000 guests a year, brings awareness to films that normally wouldn’t play here, Singer said. Guests then gain an appreciation for the film festival and its features. The movie trailers are available on the film festival’s website for those who may be interested in attending. They can then check the schedule and see when films are playing. Fishelson said he is grateful to be a part of this festival and sharing Golda’s Balcony: The Film and its message. “When you tell the story of the people, it blows your mind,” he said.

Ngannou aims to improve lives through UFC BY DARRELL JACKSON PeoriaTimes Staff Writer

Francis Ngannou has gone from an unstoppable force, to a possible flop, and back to an unstoppable force over the span of his last three fights. Once the rising star in the UFC heavyweight division, it may seem strange to say the No. 3 ranked fighter is on the comeback trail. “When I lost the two fights in a row, I think I took that experience for granted,” Ngannou said during a recent sit down interview. “Before those last two fights, I had never been in a three round, let alone a five round, fight and I didn’t know what to expect.” Now, as he prepares to face a returning Arizona native Cain Velasquez February 17 in the headline fight of UFC on ESPN at Talking Stick Arena, he is more focused on life than expectations.

Ngannou said his life growing up in his native country Cameroon was tough close to him. and his home life was even tougher. “My father was a difficult guy and he “When I was young, it was a mess was tough on me,” Ngannou said. “I was up and I don’t have good memories as a very close to both my parents, but my child,” Ngannou said. “My parents got father was very tough on me and he had divorced when I was 6 and that was303 whenFREEWAY a reputation of fighting in the streets.” everything started being a mess.” Ngannou said he started working in His tiny hometown of Batie was the sand mines at age 12, doing grueling 303 FREEWAY sometimes called “The Sand Village” and dangerous work and he would spend WALLMART hours shoveling sand into the backs of and the average Cameroon worker gets trucks so it could be shipped to big cities by on less than $1,500 per year.

seeking. One summer evening in 2013, volunteers from La Chorba, which distributes meals to undocumented migrants throughout Paris, noticed Ngannou. They offered him food and he offered to work with them. “I was bored all day, I asked them if they were looking for help,” Ngannou said. “I became a volunteer for them and, during a conversation, I realized that their space was adjacent to an MMA gym!” Boredom turned into Ngannou volunteering with La Chorba by cutting vegetables and helping to hand out food and necessities to the homeless in Paris. “That was a good way to meet people and help people,” Ngannou said. “I then met with the director and he told me about MMA Factory in Paris and Fernand Lopez.” Lopez has coached Ngannou since he walked into his gym in Paris and said he saw a fighter when he walked in for the first time. “When he walked into my gym, he looked like a fighter, but I didn’t immediately think much because I see a lot of big fighters,” Lopez said. “The first time I knew, during his first training session, I knew he was something special.” Lopez said during that first training session, Ngannou showed mental corrections and quick movements that showed he was something special. “The way he moved and the way he

shins, scooping sand out of the riverbed. As he worked in the mines, he was seeing how children in the country were struggling.. “In Cameroon, kids have many problems,” Ngannou said. “They think everything is lost before they are born. It seems like they are not allowed to dream and they are not allowed to be ambitious. They just accept being the victim of their life and I want to help them.” So, at 22, after years of idolizing Mike Tyson, Ngannou decided to follow his dream to become a boxer. He packed his bag and left Cameroon to follow that dream. “It was a long process, but I just wanted to go somewhere I could have an opportunity to become a boxer,” Ngannou said. “Then, once I decided to stop dreaming, I just packed my bag and left and went country to country.” He ended up in Spain where Ngannou said he spent two months in prison for illegal entry. After he was released he then took the opportunity to get on a bus headed for France. “Prison was like a concentration camp,” Ngannou said. “I got on a bus headed for Germany or England, but ended up in Paris.”

processed everything mentally, it was quick,” Lopez said. “He was quickly thinking about the next step and he made mistakes but would correct them immediately.” After spending his childhood dreaming of becoming a boxer, Ngannou was reluctant to give up on it, and to this day said he is a boxer fighting MMA. Lopez said he didn’t try to convince Ngannou to become an MMA fighter. He just booked him a couple of MMA fights to let him get a taste for it — and the money he’d make in the fights. “I had so much fun, I thought this is interesting,” Ngannou said. “Then, I started to get money for my MMA fights and I was hooked ... money and having fun, I thought this is great.” Ngannou started his independent career winning five of his first six fights, when the UFC came calling.

UFC debut and Phoenix fight

In his first UFC fight, Ngannou fought Luis Henrique in December 2015 and won with a knock out in the second round before following that up with a technical knockout of Curtis Blaydes four months later. “(Blaydes) is a tough fighter and he can take a punch,” Ngannou said. He would win his four UFC fights, all in the first round, to earn a UFC Heavyweight championship fight against Stipe Miocic in January 2018, where he would lose a unanimous decision to the champion. Ngannou would then lose his next fight in July 2018 to Derrick Lewis, again to unanimous decision, which he said helped him grow as a fighter. “I learned more about the martial arts of fighting as well as the business side,” Ngannou said. “Toughest part for me was all the pressure on me and I had never gone to three rounds, so I didn’t know what to expect and it got to me.” He rebounded in November with a first round technical knockout of Blaydes in their rematch before getting the call of the bout with Velasquez. Velasquez, who wrestled at Arizona State University, is making his return to the octagon after last fighting in 2016. Ngannou is focused on a fight that he hopes will get him another title fight. “(Velasquez) is a well-rounded fighter and I am focusing on everything and he is very experienced and I am going to take it carefully and not make mistakes I made in the past,” Ngannou said. “I expect a win over (Velasquez) to get

me another title shot. When I win, I am looking for another shot at the Heavyweight title.”

Ngannou Foundation

After leaving Cameroon, Ngannou was focused on giving back to his homeland and decided to start a foundation for the youth of his country. “When I was growing up and I set out to achieve my goal of a boxer, I was in my small village that had nowhere to train or any sport activity areas at all,” Ngannou said. “Cameroon is a very big soccer country, but even at that there are not a lot of soccer facilities for kids to train at.” When he started earning money, Ngannou decided to start the Francis Ngannou Foundation. “When I got some money, I wanted to do something so when I returned to Cameroon, I brought some boxing gloves, mouth guards, head gear and heavy bags,” Ngannou said. “The kids were so appreciative and I realized that nothing had changed since I left and I wanted to help change that.” Ngannou wanted to provide the same opportunity given to him for those in his hometown, thus, the Francis Ngannou Foundation was formed. Using the beauty of combat sports and teaching the principles of respect and discipline, he said the aim is to arm those children with the skills to expand their horizons and realize their dreams. The foundation built the first fully equipped gym in Cameroon and Ngannou also aspired to provide kids the chance to fight for good and open doors to all their goals. “It took me three years to get the gym opened and I want to give the kids all hope,” Ngannou said. “I want to let them know that anything is possible and it is not just athletics, but we want to help schools and kids who cannot afford to go to school. Through the foundation, they can have that opportunity.” He said the foundation is giving the youth of his country something he never had when he was there, a chance at success. “It has given me something that helps me, pride in being a real person,” Ngannou said. “All of this is for me, because I want to give kids the satisfaction that they can look at me — that I did it. I was focused on a dream and that dream turned into a reality.” But Ngannou says his ego hasn’t become inflated: “I’m still the same person I was in Cameroon. It’s thanks to my pride

that I am where I am now.” Ngannou said the goal of his foundation is to remember his roots and build champions, not just in the athletic world. “I see a lot of Francis Ngannou in the kids that are working out at the gym in Cameroon,” Ngannou said. “These kids are talented, not just for MMA, but in life. Being a champion is not just a belt or a championship, but being a champion in life.” Ngannou added, “If they struggle and

battle back, that is what being a champ is and that is what I am looking for. I am looking for kids that have a dream of becoming a lawyer, doctor, architect or whatever they want that they believe that it is possible.” He finished by adding, “To bring that hope to the kids, that is what it is all about for me. To see the kids getting excited about something, it doesn’t matter what, but the fact that they are working hard, that makes them all champions to me.”

ACU holds first national football signing events at Glendale campus BY DARRELL JACKSON Peoria Times Staff Writer

Holding its first signing event at the new campus in Glendale, Arizona Christian University introduced 92 young men, who will help build the program to the university’s goal. “Our goal here is to build a championship team and bring a national championship to ACU,” head football coach Jeff Bowen said. “We are calling this group Team Six, as the first five classes were the legacy to build this to where we are.” The Firestorm, entering its sixth season in existence, introduced its largest recruiting class ever during National Signing day February 6 at the new Glendale campus. “Our assistant coaches evaluated 6,457 players and got that list down to 600 young men that we put in our data base,” Bowen said. “Today, we are introducing our largest recruiting class of 92 new young men to our team.” Among the recruits are 50 from high schools, 35 are transfers from junior

colleges and seven transfers from fouryear schools. Among the recruits, 55 are from Arizona while 26 are from California and 11 from other states. “The majority is from Arizona because, after all, we are Arizona Christian University and we will always focus in state,” Bowen said. “Our coaching staff worked hard and tirelessly over the past year to focus on the best kids to bring in here.” Among the local players signing

with the Firestorm are wide receiver Zaachary Cullop and defensive back Rylee Williams, both from Cactus High School, and defensive back Frank Sanchez from Apollo High School. Community college transfers from Glendale Community College include lineman Pablo Beltran and Joseph Parker. Cullop said he selected ACU based on location and being part of something special. “I chose ACU because it is close to home and I just got a special feeling when I visited,” Cullop said. “I am just focusing on coming in here, working hard and doing what is needed.” Bowen welcomed the new signees by telling them to enjoy the moment as they begin building for the future. “Just enjoy the day because it is a special day for all of you,” Bowen said. “It is an exciting time here with the

new facilities and the entire university has such a positive vibe right now. Enjoy the ride, the ground breaking for our new stadium should be in the next month or two and the future is bright.” Through five seasons, the Firestorm has had four winning seasons, including two undefeated seasons in the Central States Football League and the 2015 CSFL Championship and ranked No. 22 in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. The Firestorm has compiled a 3019 overall record and Bowen said the college is building for one thing for the team. “This is team six,” Bowen said. “The first five teams are the legacy and they set the ground work for what we are doing here in the future. We want to bring a national championship to ACU and you are here to help get to that.”

Casey returns to Arizona for UFC battle February 17 at Talking Stick Arena BY DARRELL JACKSON Peoria Times Staff Writer

Local UFC fighter Cortney “Cast Iron” Casey was originally supposed to fight in January, but after a cancellation, she is now focused on battling No. 12 Cynthia Calvillo February 17 at Talking Stick Arena. “Even though we had that little change with the venues, I was already on schedule so the change did little to affect me,” Casey said during a sit-down interview at her training home The MMA Lab. “Having the fight pushed back actually gave me more time to relax and enjoy the holidays with my family.” Casey, 31, was a four-year soccer starter at Red Mountain High School before earning a scholarship to play Division I soccer at the University of Texas at El Paso. After her playing career was cut short, due to an injury, she began training MMA in 2009 and is now returning to Arizona for the second time as a member of the UFC. “I am so excited to get back in the ring here in Arizona,” Casey said. “My friends and family have always supported me, but it is always more special to fight in front of your home town.” Currently ranked No. 11 at strawweight (106 to 115 lbs.), Casey will face No. 12 ranked Cynthia Calvillo February 17 at Talking Stick Arena in the first ESPN Fight Night. “I’m expecting a great fight,” Casey said. “She is an up and comer, is ranked pretty high, and she is a very well-rounded fighter. Stylistically, wherever the fight goes, it should be really good.” Casey has fought some of the top fighters in women’s MMA with losses to top 15 UFC fighters Claudia Gadelha, Michelle Waterson and Felice Herrig and a win over Randa Markos. Casey is 8-6 as a professional, 4-5 in the UFC, and is known as the queen of the short-term fight and many people make the statement that Casey may be the best fighter in the division. “She is just one of the most consistent fighters we have here (at The MMA Lab),” head coach John Crouch said. “She has gone to split decision with some of the top fighters in MMA and while they are losses, she really has not fought a bad fight.” When asked about here recent record,

she said she has lost three of her past five fights by decision, but answered the tough questions without hesitation when discussing those fights. “It doesn’t discourage me at all and I train the same way and I always try to finish the fight and sometimes it doesn’t happen that way and judges see it differently,” Casey said. “I always go out to finish fights, that is what I do.” Casey is quick to point out that while she believes she will one day be champion, her past few fights have not translated to wins, with the losses to Waterson and Herrig particularly stinging her. “I go into a fight to finish the fight, and my last few fights have shown why because judges seem to see things different,” Casey said. “Against (Waterson) I was defending on my back, but the judges didn’t see it that way, but no matter how many people after the fight tell me I should have won, it is still a loss on my record.” As she is a week away from the fight, Casey said her weight cut has been fairly easy and she said is not a big deal to her as she has never missed weight. Calvillo has missed weight in the past, but Casey is not worried about it. “I’m not too concerned about it,” Casey said. “I mean it’s always in the back of your mind, but I’m going to fight no matter what. We will figure it out if it comes to that but I know she is making adjustments to make sure that doesn’t happen again and I have never missed weight, knock on wood.” Crouch added that Casey has been working hard on defending the takedown. “She has been working on defense and her foot work,” Crouch said. “She is consistent and just really making little adjustments and trying to be even more consistent.” As she prepares to return to the octagon, she also is focused on her future. “I would like to fight two more times this year, but if I can get three, that would be ideal,” Casey said. “I also would like a rematch with Waterson and Herrig, but I don’t see that happening, so I would like anyone in the top 10. I have asked for (No. 9 Carla) Esparza or (No. 7 Tecia) Torres and would also love to fight (No. 3 Nina) Ansaroff. I am great friends with (Ansaroff) but would love to step in the cage with her.”

As they prepare for the first UFC on ESPN, Casey said she is focused on showing what she can do. “To be on ESPN, that’s like a kid’s dream,” Casey said. “The fact that it’s in Phoenix makes it even better and this is

my next step on becoming UFC champion.” Crouch was quick to second her prediction, “I honestly think she can be the champion of the (Strawweight) division and can compete with anyone in the UFC.”

Local graduate aims for return to NFL with Arizona Hotshots BY DARRELL JACKSON The Glendale Star Staff Writer

After five years in the National Football League, Mountain Ridge graduate Jeff Locke is focused on a return while playing for the Alliance of American Football’s Arizona Hotshots during their inaugural season. Locke, 28, was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL draft and played four years with the Vikings before playing one year in Detroit. He also had brief time with the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers but was released before the start of the 2018 season. He said punting was an accident that fell in his lap just before attending Mountain Ridge High School (MRHS). “Punting kind of picked me,” Locke said while standing next to State Farm Stadium after the Hotshots practice. “I was always the big-legged soccer kid and my friends from middle school got me to try out for freshman football and that was it.”

Mountain Ridge Mountain Lions

Locke, whose father was in the military, was born in Germany and moved to Glen-

dale when his father completed his military career at Luke Air Force Base. He attended MRHS because his parents wanted him to attend a better school. “My parents knew Mountain Ridge was a good school and my older brother was starting high school, so we moved to Glendale,” Locke said. “I loved my time as a Mountain Lion.” When he got to MRHS, Locke was a star soccer player before friends told him to try out for football because of his strong leg. “The first football game I ever attended was the first game I played in on the freshman team,” Locke said. “I had never been to a game, even as a fan, before that game because I was always playing soccer.” After that first freshman game, he was not hooked, but was so strong he quickly moved up. “I don’t really remember, but I must have done pretty well because I was on the varsity team the following week,” Locke said. During high school, Locke was a kicker most of the time, connecting on 20 of 39 field goal attempts, including a 63yarder against Tucson Sunnyside August 8, 2007 — still the longest in Mountain

Ridge history. During his time on the soccer team, Locke helped the Mountain Lions to their first Regional Championship during his junior season while he was still playing both soccer and football. After joining the varsity football team, Locke was the kicker, punter and wide receiver before taking up punting full time his sophomore year. “Towards the second half of my sophomore year, I realized I was a better punter than a kicker, but kicked field goals my entire high school career,” Locke said. “I realized the scholarships were lining up for punting and realized I had a big leg and could play college as a punter.” Locke averaged 40.7 yards on 63 punts with 15 inside the 20-yard line in high school and also kicked 97 touchbacks on 183 kickoffs. He still holds school records for most field goals in a season (11), longest punt (71 yards), and longest field goal (63 yards, a state record). Locke was ranked No. 1 kicker by ESPN.com and scout.com his senior season before selecting UCLA to at-

tend college.

University of California Los Angeles

After going through the recruitment process, and visiting 10 schools, Locke chose to attend UCLA to further his play and education, playing for then head coach Rick Neuheisel. “I was a good student in high school and planned to major in science in college, and UCLA was the best of the offers for science at that time,” Locke said. While redshirting his freshman year, an exam changed his mind about his major and he changed quickly. “I had an exam on a Sunday morning after the University of Southern California (USC) game and I got together with my academic advisor and asked him if that was how it was going to be in science and he said, yes,” Locke said. “I decided to change to the science of money, economics, and fell in love with it and that was it.” Locke earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from UCLA, while shining on

the field for four years with the Bruins. He started 53 games with a punting average of 44.23, No. 2 in UCLA history. Locke also had a 42.54-percent touchback rate on kickoffs. During his senior year, Locke was named first-team All-Pac-12, when he led the league in yards per punt (45.8) and earned first-team all-conference academic team honors. He was also selected to play in the Senior Bowl college all-star game, and earned the Captain’s Award.

National Football League

After his four years at UCLA, Locke said his agent told him he was predicted to be drafted anywhere from the fourth through seventh round. “My agent got a report and that is what it said, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. In fact, my family and I were at a wedding in California and sitting in a hotel room during the second day of the draft,” Locke said. “My dad had all these cards on a table with every possibility of where I could wind up when the phone rang.” Locke said the number was a Minnesota number and he answered and was told the Vikings were drafting him in the fifth round. “I got the call and in a few minutes it showed up on the television, so it became real then,” Locke said. “I got on a plane and headed to Minnesota a couple days later.” When he landed in Minnesota and stepped off the plane, there was snow everywhere and he was shocked. “I had grown up in Arizona and then Los Angeles, so it was a shock to see all the snow,” Locke said. “I thought this was

interesting, but I loved Minneapolis, it is an amazing town.” He said when he joined the team, he worked hard but said he made mistakes that he wishes he could change on the field. “My biggest mistake was I didn’t focus on directional punting, I went the comfortable route and would kick the ball down the middle of the field because I had done it my entire career,” Locke said. “That put me behind the eight ball and I was playing catch up when the league began moving towards directional punting.” He said he finally began focusing on directional punting midway through his third year but struggled with the cold. “Playing outside then (at the old TCF Stadium) and it was tough playing in those conditions,” Locke said. “I struggled with that and didn’t finish strong at the end of my contract and heading into free agency.”

Arizona Hotshots

As he is part of the inaugural Arizona Hotshots, he says he is honored to be playing for head coach Neuheisel again. “I loved playing for coach at UCLA and we had a good laugh my first day out here when he looked at me and (former UCLA and current Hotshots assistant coach Tim) Hundley and said, ‘I can’t believe we got Jeff Locke out here punting for us again’ and we all laughed,” Locke said. “This really has been a great experience so far and I can’t wait to get rolling.” Locke said fans should check out the league, especially the Hotshots, because he said, “In terms of on the field, there really is not a big difference between the AAF and the NFL.” There are no kickoffs in the AAF and there are no extra points as each team

must go for two-point conversions after touchdowns. “That is weird still, but it is good because we all know the kickoff is the most dangerous play in football,” Locke said. I haven’t heard of guys complaining about it so far and it actually makes guys want to be part of the punt team more.” The league also has teams start at the 20-yard line as there are no kickoffs and in a scrimmage before the season began, Locke said starting kicker Nick Folk was barely part of the team. “There was a drive when the offense got inside the red zone and we started preparing for a field goal when the offense scored,” Locke said. “We kind of looked at each other and said, ‘I guess we should put our hats back on and sit down.’ I don’t think (Folk) even had a kick that game and that was really weird.” Locke said he is focused on the AAF and believes the league can be a great football alternative during the NFL offseason. “I believe this league can be like a GLeague in the National Basketball Association or Minor League Baseball,” Locke said. “There are too many guys that don’t get drafted and then don’t make their first camp and don’t get a second chance. This league has the chance to be that second chance.” After the season, Locke said he will then focus on a future attempt at making an NFL roster. “My agent just said come in here and make the best 10-game highlight video and that is what I am focused on right now.

Life after football

After getting his economics degree,

Locke said he has worked on internships during college and some work after college, on helping people improve their financial stability. “I love the financial education side of things and I don’t think it is addressed enough to help people move forward,” Locke said. “I don’t think it is addressed enough as early as middle school, and I would love to start talking to middle, high school and college kids about things like getting their first mortgage or car loan because it is not taught enough.” He said he is leaning toward the possibility of starting his own financial advising company after his playing days. While interning during college, he knew about the problem of NFL players going broke and decided to try to make a change to help them. He did a presentation during his internship to his colleagues — all of whom knew more about finance than Locke did — and he said every intern does this at the end of the program. Locke created a 45-minute PowerPoint package in which he believed he found the causes of the problem. He thought he found a way, through his research, to stop it. The executives were impressed. It gave Locke the template for what he wanted to do next: take the presentation and bring it to the Vikings. After refining it throughout 2015, Locke gave his seminar to Vikings rookies in 2016 and Indianapolis Colts rookies during the 2018 preseason. “I had a number of advisors reach out to me and it opened my eyes for my future,” Locke said. “I have had a couple of NFL players contact me, and I am not licensed so I can’t really do much, but it really opened my eyes on what may be needed so I am looking at that after football.”
