Verrado honors late teammate during playoff By Griffin Fabits It was just like Bryan McKinsey would have wanted. Verrado High School junior lefty Rocky King delivered the first pitch of the Vipers’ 5A state semifinal game versus Notre Dame Prep on May 10 with a side-arm fastball. Senior outfielder Hayden Brown followed suit, digging into the batter’s box in the home half of the first inning by tracing a No. 6 with his finger into the dirt behind him. Brown ripped a lead-off triple just a few pitches later, racing into third as he locked eyes with his teammates. With teary eyes and heavy hearts, they looked back, cheering while simultaneously holding up three fingers on both hands to form a No. 6. These were some of the many tributes for their teammate McKinsey, who unexpectedly died the morning of May 9, before Verrado’s semifinal game. The 17-year-old’s signature sidearm delivery and his No. 6 jersey were remembered May 10, just a little more than 24 hours after his death. And now the Verrado Vipers will forge on to unchartered territory – the first baseball team to make the title game in

school history – without their friend, teammate and star pitcher. But in this time of grieving, the Vipers yearn to play baseball. Anxious for a two-and-a-half-hour therapeutic escape from reality, the Vipers will play for their friend for the final time together in 2018. “There’s a certain sadness that we all have going in. But on Tuesday (May 15),

we’re all really excited to get out there and get our minds away from the whole thing and do our best to honor our buddy,” senior Kyle Wellman said. Wellman was scheduled to start in the championship game versus the Liberty Lions on May 15. His first pitch was set to be thrown side-arm, like King did in

WV progress discussed at economic development summit By Connor Dziawura A hint about a major development in Avondale was one of the many highlights of WESTMARC’s 2018 Economic Development Summit on May 8 at the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel and Spa. “I was hoping to announce the largest master-planned community to be announced since the opening of Eastmark in Mesa 10 years ago,” said Karrin Taylor Robson, Arizona Strategies founder and president.

“But the Avondale City Council hearing was continued last night, so more to come on that. The city of Avondale will hopefully have a major announcement to make in the next three weeks.” Elected officials from Avondale, Buckeye and Goodyear were among the many West Valley guests at the event, which featured speakers with ties to the West Valley. Panelists discussed their respective organizations’ impacts on the region’s well-being as well.

The approaching Avondale news was just one takeaway from Robson’s speech, which focused on what she described as some key ingredients to building strong communities: infrastructure, education, health care, quality of life and civic engagement. Robson also detailed how transportation improvements have led to a handful of other widely reported West Valley

PITCHER...continued from page 1 the semi-final game. Results were not available at press time. The Vipers also planned to wear blue wristbands in honor of McKinsey’s favorite color, Wellman said. How the Vipers managed to get through May 10, a 13-3 win versus Notre Dame a day after receiving the tragic news, was stunning. It was something the team voted on the afternoon of May 9: to keep playing for McKinsey. “We all wanted to play for him that game and we all got the job done and did it for him. There were so many emotions it’s so hard to explain,” senior Chad Berger said. After the game, the Vipers gathered just outside of their dugout and looked toward the crowd, holding McKinsey’s Verrado jersey as it waved in the wind. Their unwavering display of resiliency earned them a chance to bring a ring home for McKinsey, whose larger-thanlife presence will be greatly missed on and off the field. “I think the fact that they face so much adversity and stress and stuff going through their minds, the fact that

they’ve been able to stick together and become closer through all the obstacles thrown at them, shows you a lot about Verrado, the character of these boys, the character of the program, and most importantly about the character we lost in Bryan McKinsey,” head coach Mike Ward said. On May 15, the Vipers were planned to hang his jersey in their dugout at Tempe Diablo Stadium. His No. 6 will be stitched on to their uniforms, as it likely will be moving forward. That trademark smirk he so often flashed will not just serve as a testament to his personality, but a reason for why the Vipers are playing for their teammate despite still mourning and attempting to comprehend the loss. It was just like Bryan McKinsey would have wanted.

A school mourns

Verrado High School Principal Kristen Tiffany sent a letter to parents on May 10 expressing her and her staff’s sadness about Bryan McKinsey’s death. The letter stated counselors and Verrado’s school psychologist were available for students who needed extra support.

Local schools Public invited to Buckeye’s awarded A+ grades budget meetings By Christina Fuoco-Karasinski The Arizona Educational Foundation (AEF) announced the names of 41 Arizona public schools receiving the coveted A+ School of Excellence award for the 2017-2018 academic year. AEF has identified and honored exemplary prekindergarten through 12th grade public schools in Arizona since 1983. Among the local schools and their principals are: • Estrella Mountain Elementary School, Liberty Elementary School District, Sharon Marine • Tartesso Elementary School, Saddle Mountain Unified School District, Liz Burton • Verrado Elementary School, Litchfield Elementary School District, Luke Jankee • Verrado Middle School, Litchfield Elementary School District, Karen Williams “The A+ School of Excellence program celebrates outstanding schools throughout Arizona, calling attention to the positive stories and successes occurring in public schools,” AEF Executive Director Bobbie O’Boyle said. “The application and evaluation process for this program is comprehensive and rigorous. We applaud these schools for exceeding expectations to meet their students’ needs and for achieving overall success despite the many challenges that face the education community statewide.” Applicant schools are evaluated in the areas of student focus and support, school culture, active teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership, community and parent involvement and assessment data. Applications are made available to prekindergarten through 12th grade public schools statewide. Evaluation of schools is based on a lengthy written application submitted by the school and a rigorous site visit conducted by a team of trained judges. In the application, each school provides demographic information, a description of current programs and practices, documentation of parent and community involvement, and a profile of the school’s principal and the school community’s commitment to excellence, equity, service and sustained high achievement. Preparation of each school’s application involves collaboration among all stakeholders including students, faculty, staff, administrators and community members. Schools receive $500 and a banner designating them as an A+ School of Excellence winner. All staff and their family members at the award-winning schools are eligible for partial scholarships from Argosy University Phoenix. The award is valid for three and a half years. Recognition through the A+ School of Excellence program can help increase confidence in Arizona’s public schools and create greater parent and community support.

Avondale police acquires tactical robot

Man arrested for second degree murder

The ruling of a 3-month-old child’s death as a homicide led to the arrest and subsequent booking of a man on charges of second degree murder and child abuse on May 8. The suspect, John Centano, was arrested by Buckeye Police Department detectives. The allegations date back to June 13, 2017, when the Buckeye Police Department received a call from Phoenix Children’s Hospital about Centano’s child being found unresponsive in his Buckeye home. The child was pronounced deceased after he was transported to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. According to Centano, he brought his son to the Abrazo Buckeye emergency room upon finding him unresponsive on the bed. An investigation and medical examination, however, indicated that the child’s death was caused by complications from head trauma. Centano was booked into Maricopa County Jail.

Avondale Citizen Leadership Academy completes course By West Valley View staff Avondale Mayor Kenn Weise recently recognized the graduates of the 12th annual Avondale Citizen Leadership Academy. Eighteen participants took part in a 10-week course that offered a comprehensive, behind-the-scenes perspective of their city government, with interactive and informative workshops on topics ranging from the city budget to building strong neighborhoods. During the course, participants took part in a “quality of life” tour of city parks and facilities, got a closeup view of fire apparatus, toured the Wolf Water Treatment Plant and learned about the budgeting process, open meeting law, and more. Through a “mock” jury trial and creative games they developed a better understanding of local government and asked questions of city staff. “Avondale’s Citizens Leadership Academy is designed to encourage citizen engagement by providing participants an in-depth look at how

Goodyear urges residents to check bank statements

7

By West Valley View staff Customers who paid the city of Goodyear using a credit or debit card are urged to check their statements for fraudulent activity and immediately contact the card issuer with any concerns. The reason behind the caution: a cyberattack that targeted the software that underpins the city’s payment processing system. City officials became aware of the situation early on Monday, May 7, and immediately activated an internal crisis team to manage its response. “Cybersecurity is challenging in today’s internet connected world and the city remains committed to taking all precautions to ensure the security of our customers’ information,” City Manager Julie Arendall said. “We understand the distress this breach has caused our customers, and sincerely apologize for the frustration and inconvenience our customers are experiencing.” The city’s payment processing vendor has conducted a forensic investigation and has confirmed the

system was breached despite the normal cybersecurity precautions. Neither the city nor the vendor knew of the breach until Goodyear residents brought the matter to the city’s attention. The vendor’s investigation has shown the breach “skimmed” credit card information beginning in June 13, 2017. Anyone who has used a debit or credit card with the city of Goodyear since June 13, 2017, is advised to work with their financial institutions and/or credit card issuer to determine the most appropriate course of action. Now that the details of the breach are known, the investigators are diligently working to identify exactly which customers’ credit card information could have been compromised. Once that information is in hand, the city will notify those customers. According to the external vendor, no personally identifiable information was accessed. Law enforcement agencies were notified on May 7 and are investigating the breach. That morning, a resident told city

staff the payment system might have been compromised. The city turned off the payment system the same day and posted notifications on its website and social media. Updates will continue through those channels. Every Goodyear resident will be notified via postal mail or emails. Customers are encouraged to visit goodyearaz.gov for updates. Updated information will also be shared with those who follow the city on Facebook, Twitter, and NextDoor. The credit/debit card payment system

ventures: Aldi, King Koil, IAC, Chewy Inc. and Ball Corp. “For the West Valley, the more recent completion of the 101 and the Loop 303 has many new employers moving into the area,” Robson said. “You know, it’s interesting, you can have plans on a map for a road, but until that road is built, people just don’t leave. But as soon as those freeways were built, the West Valley is now a magnet for many of these opportunities.” In Goodyear, she discussed how German grocer Aldi’s regional headquarters is expected to create more than 130 jobs with a capital expense of $60 million; IAC will relocate from Southern California; Chewy Inc. is expected to create 700 jobs with a capital investment of $30 million; and Ball Corp. will add 130 employees and generate a $245 million investment in the West Valley. Moving to Avondale, Robson discussed how the city beat out Las Vegas for mattress manufacturer King Koil, which will create 80 jobs through its new manufacturing facility. “Each of these recent locates in the West Valley, proximate to your freeways, have indicated that the regional transportation infrastructure was a primary reason why they moved here,” Robson said. “So again, infrastructure matters. And it takes decades to bring infrastructure to fruition. I think the East Valley has had a lot of employment, a lot of companies moving here over the last couple decades. This is your decade.” Shortly after Robson, a panel gave

guests the opportunity to hear from Leadership West Executive Director and Buckeye Councilwoman Michelle Hess; Ball Corp. Human Resources Manager Chris McClanahan; Director

of Community Relations and Professor of Practice at ASU’s College of Public Service and Community Solutions Dale Larsen; Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Director RJ Cardin; Gila River Arena General Manager and AEG Vice President of Event Development Dale Adams; Pipeline AZ Director Katherine Pappas; and Surprise Deputy Chief Benny Piña. Moderated by Surprise marketing and communications director Diane Arthur, panelists discussed their respective organizations and entities, as well as potential ways to enhance quality of life, job growth and economic development in the West Valley. Copper State Rubber Vice President Chuck Wood was the keynote speaker. His company notably made a venture to Avondale last year, and much of his discussion focused on the choice. The new facility, which was built to house more than 100 employees per shift, is at less than half of its capacity, he said. “One of the reasons we chose this site

is we like the surrounding area,” Wood said. “It was quite clean, close proximity to restaurants and other services around there, grocery stores and stuff like that. It was someplace that we’d want to spend many hours, because we do work a lot of hours and that is really our second family.” But it was WESTMARC President and CEO Sintra Hoffman’s opening remarks that encapsulated the purpose of gathering the West Valley officials and businesspeople under one roof. “We have a strong and talented workforce. Our community is getting younger as we mature as a region. In other words, we’re very well positioned for economic growth,” Hoffman said. “Little bit of data behind that growth: Over the next 25 years, 43 percent of the growth in Maricopa County will occur in the West Valley. That number is astounding, and that tells us that we all have a tremendous job, an opportunity ahead of us, and that’s why we’re all here today.”

Abrazo dedicates biplane interventional radiology suite By West Valley View staff Community leaders joined hospital staff for a ribbon cutting celebrating completion of a biplane imaging interventional radiology suite at the Abrazo West Campus. The biplane system produces highly detailed 3-D views of blood vessels as well as cross-sectional soft tissue imaging that provide guidance for interventional therapies and procedures such as revascularization of vessels, ablations, embolization and interventional neurology. Interventional radiology is used for minimally invasive treatment of a wide range of conditions in the body by inserting various small tools, such as catheters or wires, from outside the body.

“The images produced by the biplane system can be used to aid physicians in treating aneurysm, artery blockages, brain and neck tumors and other conditions,” said Stan Holm, Abrazo West Campus CEO. “We continue to invest in our campus to provide services for residents of the West Valley and beyond.” West Valley dignitaries attending the dedication included Avondale City Councilman Lorenzo Sierra, Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord and Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce President and CEO John Safin. “This is another huge step for Abrazo West Campus,” Safin said.

Avondale observes Memorial Day By West Valley View staff Avondale city offices and facilities will be closed in observance of Memorial Day on May 28. The public is invited to attend a special remembrance event at City Hall that evening. Transit services for the ZOOM Circulator Bus will not run on this date. Regular route operations will resume on Tuesday, May 29. The Public Works Department will follow the holiday trash and recycling pick up schedule. There will be no trash collection on Monday, May 28. Trash and recycling pick up will be one day later from the regular pick

up schedule. Residents who normally have Friday pick up will have a Saturday service instead. Containers must be placed at curbside no later than 5 a.m. on the day of collection. Avondale’s Memorial Day event is at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 28, at the Avondale Civic Center, 11465 W. Civic Center Drive, in the outdoor amphitheater. The public is invited to honor those who have served. The event will include music, special tributes and a candlelight vigil. For more information, call city of Avondale, 623-333-1000 or visit avondaleaz.gov.

Abrazo West Campus is holding a free stroke screening from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 29, for the community to learn more about stroke warning signs and prevention. Abrazo West Campus is located at 13677 W. McDowell Road, Goodyear. Services include blood pressure and

heart rate checks, body mass index, family history/risk factor assessments, the availability of stroke education/materials, and the opportunity to speak with licensed health professionals (bring a medications list and any recent lab work).

Locals hold on to memories as Tolleson Boys & Girls Club closes By Carrie Snider A place that holds 30 years of memories of fun, learning and friendship is closing. At the end of the month, The Woodrow C. Scoutten/Tolleson Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix will be no more. The building is owned by the city of Tolleson, which recently announced plans to remodel the building into an all-ages recreation center with hopes to open in time for summer activities. Current and past members of the Tolleson Boys & Girls Club are sad to see the change, but hope the city will carry on the opportunities and sense of community provided there for so many years. Bridget McDonald, COO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix explained its primary goal has always been to impact the kids in a positive way. “We know they come for the fun,

200 kids, two-thirds ages 5-12 and the rest teens. The Boys & Girls Clubs is an afterschool drop-in and summer program center focused on helping kids from kindergarten through 12th grade with homework, mentorship and activities to help expand their horizons. Activities over the years have included playing pool, doing arts and crafts, and participating in sports, dances, and just about anything else the kids are interesting in doing, including academics and leadership. “We start talking to them very young, asking them what they want to do someday. Some will go to college, and others won’t, but we want to mentor them and let them know we care,” McDonald said. Alumni Olivia Tellez remembers walking to the Tolleson Boys & Girls Club with her cousins when they were in school. “My favorite part was the art room, and my cousins were in sports,” she said. Looking through old photos at the club with her cousin, Melissa Tellez, the two remembered just how much of their youth was spent there. “We did bake sales, so we could go on outings in Sedona, Prescott and California,” Melissa said. Another cousin received a college scholarship through the Boys & Girls Clubs and is now a teacher. The branch has impacted multiple

generations here. Charlotte Brunson is the director of programs and staff development and has seen her work impact not just kids, but entire families. “It’s been a privilege to be a part of that,” she said. “We hope they will continue to be part of this as things change here.” Those who have been going to the Tolleson branch are welcome to go to the other 12 locations in the Valley, including the Tri-City West Thornwood Branch in Avondale and the Stewart Branch at 67th Avenue and Clarendon. Jesus Castillo, activity leader at the Tolleson branch, knows the sense of community will live on. “I started going to the Avondale branch when I was 6, and then when I was old enough I applied for a job with the Boys & Girls Clubs. But it’s not like a job, it’s more like being a role model.” Though he’s disappointed the Tolleson branch is closing, he’s happy to rejoin the Avondale branch once more.

OUR READERS’ VIEWPOINTS

KIRK'S OPINION — The Toledo Blaze

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Copper sulfate crystals Editor: Hello, my name is Cole Lozon and I am from the Trivium FFA chapter. One thing that FFA encourages is to educate the public about issues involving agriculture, which is why I’m writing this letter. Recently, I have done research on the best way to manage algae growth in watering tanks, which lead me to look at types of algaecides (aka pesticides) that ranchers use. A very common type of algaecide that is used in Arizona has a copper sulfate base or copper sulfate crystals. Along with that compound are other chemicals such as triethanolamine and aminoethanol. While doing initial research on these chemicals they do not seem that bad; however, upon further investigation these chemicals are harmful to the environment, harmful to livestock, and deadly to humans. The chemical aminoethanol has been linked to cancer by The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and has been banned in several states, and the triethanolamine has been linked to “adverse effects on reproductive function or fetal development” (Safety Data Sheets). The same chemical is also said to cause liver failure in animals after being exposed to it for long periods of time. This type of algaecide also includes copper carbonate, which is listed as a toxic pollutant under the U.S. Clean Water Act Section 307. On the label of these copper sulfate-based products, it says “Environmentally Hazardous Material” (applied biochemists). Not to mention the overall lack of research done on this chemical. To register a pesticide you need to do trials on animals and how the chemicals react with them; however, for this type of algaecide, there is no data on how it reacts with animals. However, all of that isn’t the reason why I’m writing this letter. The reason why is because Arizona does not have strict regulations on pesticides and pesticide labels. Nowhere on the label does it say it will harm the livestock in any way. Nowhere on the label does it say it contains a toxic pollutant

that’s under the U.S. Clean Water Act. Nowhere does it say that one of its chemicals has been linked to cancer. I seek change in the ways of which we label our pesticides. The label should not just include the effects on humans; it should include the effects on all living things. The label should be required to disclose if it contains any chemicals that are listed under the EPA as harmful or toxic. Arizona should also have more regulations on types of pesticides used so that we do not end up using one that can devastate the ecosystem. It is my goal to make this change happen, and now that you have heard about this issue I implore you to do your own research on it so that you advocate for this. Thank you. Cole Lozon Litchfield Park

A message to motorists Editor: Please obey Arizona Law in regards to cyclists on the roadways. Cyclists have the same legal right to use the road as motorists. In several circumstances, cyclists can use the entire travel lane (A.R.S. 28-815). The law also requires that motorists slow down and pass cyclists carefully and give at least 3 feet of clearance when you pass a cyclist (A.R.S. 28-735). Share the road. Sean Chappell Avondale

A Democratic Party manifesto Editor: At the 2008 Democratic National Convention, L. David Alinsky proudly commented that his father’s influence could be felt. His father, Saul Alinsky, wrote the book Rules for Radicals in 1971. In it, Mr. Alinsky, a community organizer, laid out the tactics for an eventual socialist takeover of America. Like Lenin and Marx before him, Alinsky liked to divide people into groups – rich and poor, black and white, upper class and lower class – in order to pit one group against another. He felt the end justified the means and one

must “agitate to the point of conflict.” To be successful it was important to “rub raw the sores of discontent.” For Alinsky, extortion, intimidation and demonization were acceptable if your objective was achieved. Deception about ultimate goals was hidden, which explains why Alinsky admired the greatest deceiver of all time – Lucifer. Although Alinsky passed away in 1972, his tactics and thoughts influenced many of today’s Democratic leaders. While at Wellesley College in the late 1960s, Hillary Clinton was so impressed with Mr. Alinsky’s ideas that she invited him to Wellesley to speak and then wrote her senior thesis on Alinsky tactics. Former President Obama was an Alinsky-trained community organizer and later “professor” at the Chicago University Law School where he taught Alinsky Power Analysis. Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist who almost won the 2016 Democratic nomination, volunteered at the Coalition of Racial Equality (CORE), which Alinsky helped found. Incorporating many of the power tactics of Saul Alinsky, Sanders has been able to organize many followers for his political campaigns. However, Mr. Sanders is not your friendly, retiring socialist. He has been a frequent speaker at the Democratic Socialists of America meetings, a group that has close ties to the Communist Party USA. His promises of free college education, free healthcare and government jobs for everyone reflect some of the fundamental flaws

of socialism: benefits without effort, entitlements without responsibility, and promises without merit. By promising such freebies, the socialists hope to control the people – their ultimate goal. President Trump’s greatest accomplishment was to thwart this continued slide towards socialism and challenge the entrenched status quo of liberalism. He did it by appealing to hard-working, patriotic Americans who believed in liberty, freedom and the free market capitalistic system that has done more to elevate the lives of people than any other system known to mankind, according to Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences winner Milton Friedman. Igor Shpudejko Goodyear

The future of Buckeye Editor: What does Marilyn A. Vollmer get out of defending Buckeye having a Goodwill built overlooking Sundance’s Golf Course and Lake? Love the Goodwill, but it was like a bad joke placing it in that location. Of course the residents were consulted about it, but this is always what city planners do to make themselves look fair; in reality, I believe the foundation was being poured as the public opinions

WEST VALLEY VIEW NEWS | MAY 16, 2018

Letters...continued from page 12 against it were coming in. Also planned in Sundance’s view are a car wash, storage facility, extended stay motel, some tacky bulk store and, of course, my personal favorite: another fast food joint. We stayed in an extended stay motel while waiting for our house to be built. Liquor and wine bottles placed outside of doors. This place will keep our police department busy. So many beautiful homes in Verrado; its quite the show place. It’s hard to understand why the large market chain and nearby restaurants decided not to build. I do know Verrado won’t get some bulk store moving in. They are lucky there. Bill Gates’ future development is too far away to do Buckeye any good. It is part of Buckeye City Council’s job, along with the mayor and the city planner, to recruit nice businesses for Buckeye. I would rather see bare land than what we will have to look at. Vicki J. Chelini Buckeye

Thank you, Goodyear and Avondale PD Editor: I participated in the MomsTRI, Saturday, May 5. It was a wonderful event. One of the reasons it was so wonderful was the excellent work of the Goodyear and Avondale police departments. They were at every intersection directing traffic and shouting encouragement. They kept the routes safe and helped keep our spirits up when we were tired. Thank you so much to those wonderful officers. I so appreciate you and can’t thank you enough. Jeanette Voss Goodyear

Cult of noise Editor: With each passing generation that our society lives with the escalating noise created by unregulated mufflers and high intensity/low frequency subwoofer (HI/ LF) noise, the population becomes more indoctrinated to accepting this bombardment of noise as normal. We have reached

OPINION the point now that nobody questions why some cars and trucks are really loud and some are barely audible. Nobody in the media is reporting on the detrimental effects of this escalating noise on our health and wellbeing. The police do nothing because they are just as much a part of the overall malaise of acceptance. It has been documented by the World Health Organization (WHO) and others that the HI/LF subwoofer bass noise that we are all bombarded with daily at every traffic light, and in our homes and places of work, causes physical damage at the cellular level; can damage human organs; induces hearing loss; impedes learning and cognitive development processes, especially in children; causes hypertension; contributes to aggressive behavior; causes stress and sleep loss; and leads to depression. The industries that have been pressuring and lobbying Congress and our politicians, that cut funding for the EPA noise control office, have also been very successful in marketing to the public their arguments for tolerance and nonexistent rights. There is no legal precedent that the brazen noise these morally bankrupt zombies of commercial exploitation are broadcasting is a legal right. All legal

Arizona has one of the best websites to track spending By Diane E. Brown & Tom Jenney

MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY MONDAY 6:30 PM

MAY

28

AVONDALE CITY HALL

11465 W. Civic Center Dr.

Honor those who served with a ceremonial candlelight vigil that includes music, honorary tributes and special guests.

As taxpayers in Arizona, our hardearned money contributes to a wide range of items: Employee salaries. Health care. Education. Public safety. Office supplies. The list goes on and on. While reasonable people may disagree on how our taxpayer dollars should be spent, we should all be able to agree that public accountability can help to ensure that state funds are spent wisely. And fortunately, according to the new report “Following the Money 2018” by the Arizona PIRG Education Fund and Frontier Group, Arizona has one of the best government spending websites in the country – openbooks. az.gov. Why is having a top-notch spending transparency website important? Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Yee, a distinguished champion of transparency in the Arizona state legislature, recently stated, “When citizens, organizations, appointed and elected officials have easily accessible information on how our hard-earned taxpayer money is spent, we have a greater ability to identify and eliminate waste and duplication in government services.” Indeed. State-operated transparency websites provide checkbook-level detail on government spending, allowing citizens and watchdog groups to view: payments made to individual companies, details on purchased goods or services, and benefits obtained in exchange for public subsidies. Through utilization of government spending transparency websites, citizens and government officials can monitor state spending to save taxpayer money, reduce potential abuse of public dollars and prevent corruption. States with strong transparency websites often realize significant financial returns on their investment including more efficient government administration, more competitive bidding for public projects and less staff time spent on information requests. And in an increasingly digital world, online-accessible financial information is also a good way to enable citizens

to participate in decisions about how resources are spent. What’s next for spending transparency? Although government spending websites across the country have come a long way in the past decade, the sites with which the average citizen interacts have also undergone significant transformation. States can help ensure their websites continue to evolve and are usable by including features such as a fully functional search bar and hosting an in-site viewing portal for citizens to interact with data without having to download a file, itemizing spending into manageable and understandable categories, as well as standardizing department and expenditure category descriptions to eliminate inconsistent abbreviations or misspellings that may complicate finding information. Increasingly, Arizona is stepping up and meeting citizens’ expectations for accessible spending data through the state’s budget transparency portal. Arizona’s budget transparency website excels in “real-world” userfriendliness and functionality and deserves accolades for a financial highlights webpage that includes graphs intended to clearly illustrate government spending. Arizona is “near the top” of government spending websites. However, Arizona can be “at the top” by providing comprehensive information for all economic development subsidies, not just the Arizona Competes Fund, on its budget website. And it can ensure governmental and quasi-governmental entities – even those that are entirely financially self-supporting – integrate their expenditures into the online checkbook. –Diane E. Brown is the executive director of the Arizona PIRG Education Fund and can be reached at dbrown@ arizonapirg.org.

Good day, readers! Welcome back and thanks for checking in with me for another great week of Business Briefcase. There are plenty of news items to go around this week, with more updates regarding the new Planet Fitness in Goodyear. Additionally, a self-storage facility in Buckeye was included in a large sale recently. But it wouldn’t be Business Briefcase without me briefing you on the happenings of the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce, which has upcoming plans with Luke Air Force Base and more. Here’s the news! First, Storage America DBA StoreAll America RV and Self Storage recently sold a 107,130-square-foot netrentable facility to a buyer in California for $10.755 million. The facility, Store-All America RV and Self Storage, is located on 9.11 acres at 24901 W. Yuma Road in Buckeye. It features 638 drive-up units and 240 outdoor RV parking spaces. A U-Haul moving truck business was also included in the sale. Both the buyer and seller were represented by NAI Horizon Senior Vice President Denise Nunez. “For the right deals, the market continues to deliver high prices. The owners capitalized on the low inventory, high demand environment for selfstorage properties, to sell below current market cap rates for a $100.39 per square foot price,” Nunez said. “The buyer is an established selfstorage owner and operator out of California who completed the sale with a 1031 Exchange. This sale represents the

WEST VALLEY VIEW NEWS | MAY 16, 2018

The Wigwam celebrates 100 years of its first building By Carrie Snider One hundred years ago, a visit to the West Valley wasn’t exactly tempting for Goodyear Tire executives. But they needed to come here to oversee growth of an important crop – cotton. Goodyear Tires owned an impressive 16,000 acres of the crop, which was being grown to reinforce car and truck tires being used in the war effort. That’s why The Organization House was built. In 1918, it began with just a sitting room, kitchen, bedrooms, and terrace to house Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company executives visiting the cotton farm, but it soon became much more. As people stayed there to do business, they found an oasis in the desert. They started to bring their families with them. A part of The Wigwam, The Organization House is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year with a series of events, including a special two-night stay package. (See accompanying story.) For more info visit wigwamarizona. com. The fireplace, hardwood floors, and windows patterned with tire treads,

along with décor indicative of Arizona made for a memorable trip to the Southwest. The winter weather became a welcome treat for those visiting from colder climates. Paul Litchfield was president of Goodyear Tires then, and the town was named after him in 1926. A portrait of Litchfield, painted and gifted by his daughter, now hangs at the resort. Over the years word of mouth caused more quests to flock, and as a result The Organization House grew from housing six people to 24; in addition the grounds changed to provide fun activities for those staying. On Thanksgiving Day in 1929, it opened to the public as The Wigwam where people could enjoy a true Arizona experience. Early on, golf was a big part of why people loved coming to The Wigwam. The first course was developed in 1930 and V.O. “Red” Allen was the first fulltime golf pro. Then in 1965, Robert Trent Jones Sr. developed the second golf course as well as renovated the first. In 1975, a third course was completed by Robert “Red” Lawrence.

In 1979, two impressive presidential suites were built, named Oraibi and Bacabi after the oldest Native American village in Arizona. One hundred years later, The Wigwam is a gem in Litchfield Park. It is 440 acres of golf courses, three swimming pools, restaurants, nine tennis courts, spa, fitness center, indoor and outdoor

WIGWAM...continued from page 16 Sarah Boyd, social media and marketing manager at The Wigwam. “You can tell people came to celebrate the important things in their lives.” Boyd grew up in the area and loves showing people the grounds. “I could talk about this place all day.” Just being in the fireplace room of the historic Organization House brings a connection to time and place, according to Jenna Sullivan, programming and events manager at The Wigwam. Today, the main building at The Wigwam includes the original Organization House as well as newer add-ons to the building that keep with the historic feeling of the space. Walking the front doors, guests pass a room dedicated to celebrating the five C’s of Arizona industry: cotton, citrus, copper, cattle and climate. Next is the guest check-in desk, and beyond that is a common space that features historic artifacts from the Heard Museum and a painting of The Wigwam by local artist Michelle Shook. Guests then enjoy the fireplace room of The Organization House, with its original fireplace and floors.

In recent years, great effort has been made to expose more of the historic parts of the building. And while the space itself is special, it’s not the only thing that keeps guests coming back; they also come back because of the people at The Wigwam. The Wigwam’s general manager Martin Greenwood explained that in general the hospitality industry has a high turnover rate. But at The Wigwam, many employees have been working there many years; a few have even passed the 30-year mark. “That adds a lot. It helps our guests feel connected,” he explained. Recently, The Wigwam welcomed its first “four-legged” employee, its adopted dog Archie. Guests from around the world come to The Wigwam, but something it has always offered is a connection to the community. It’s a place where people in Litchfield Park can all come to enjoy the grounds and celebrate together. Every year The Wigwam puts on celebrations for Easter, Fourth of July, Oktoberfest, and more. “It’s a social hub,” Greenwood said. “This is a community meeting place that crosses generations.”

Millennium’s Diggs wins shotput state championship By Griffin Fabits Alaina Diggs is a basketball player by trade, but a conversation with Millennium High School’s track head coach her freshman year may have changed the direction of her athletic career. Now a junior at Millennium, Diggs said she was stopped at one of her basketball games by track coach Muhammad Oliver. “The track coach came and watched me play basketball, and he was like, ‘I think you’d do really well doing field events.’” Diggs gave it a shot – so to speak – unsure of what kind of an athlete she would be away from a basketball court or softball field – two sports she grew up playing. After her first three seasons, it’s safe to say her track and field experiment has played to her advantage. Diggs won the Division I shotput state championship on May 5, setting a personal record with a throw of 45.1 feet. “I was ranked No. 2 going into the

finals, so I was definitely focused on coming out with a win.” Diggs edged out Chandler High School’s Samantha Ponds, as the two had a bit of a rivalry brewing this year. “Throughout the season, it was definitely just us going back and forth. She would win, I would win, so I definitely knew what I was going in to.

“I just knew I had to do better than her.” Diggs got the last laugh in the state tournament, which has parlayed into expressed interest from college scouts. “I talked to a couple schools and with winning (the state championship), I think that draws a lot of attention. My mark is like the top-30 in the nation, and I think that will also get me a lot of attention.” Diggs is unsure if she’ll pursue track and field or basketball in college, but continuing her athletic career is the goal. Her rise to a state championship comes at the heels of her brother, Aidan, winning the Division I decathlon state championship on April 28. Alaina Diggs joins her older brothers – AJ, Aaron, Andrew and Aidan – in

building their own illustrious careers at Millennium. She has her sights set on shattering the state’s shotput record her senior year – which she believes to be around 47.9 feet – “so it won’t be broken again.” But for the time being, as she heads into an off-season crowned a state champion, Alaina Diggs will work on her smack talk after a sarcastic claim that she’s officially earned the right of the best athlete in the uber-athletic Diggs’ house. “I’ve always been the best athlete in the house,” she joked. “Aidan thinks he’s better. We’re in a little bit of a tie because we’re both state champions, but I think I’ve always been the itfactor in this family.”

Former Tolleson teammates extend careers at St. Cloud State By Griffin Fabits DJ Wyman received a text message from St. Cloud State University head coach Pat Dolan in December 2017, expressing his interest in the righthanded pitcher. Roughly one minute later, Wyman got a call from his best friend and former Tolleson High School teammate, Lenny Walker, who had the same message. The coincidence solidified their decisions to continue their baseball careers at the next level, as they committed to St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minnesota, on May 5. “I always wanted to get away from home and experience a different place, but I’ve always been a little nervous to do it,” Wyman said. “Having Lenny with me – someone I’m comfortable with – that really helped me make the decision and I’m sure he felt the same with the situation.” After playing together at Tolleson for three seasons and graduating in 2016, the two had to split up to continue their baseball careers. Wyman played at Gateway Community College for two seasons, while Walker bounced from South Mountain Community College to Phoenix College. As community and junior college athletes are only eligible for two years, both players began exploring options to extend their careers. St. Cloud State came calling after Dolan toured Arizona colleges, eyeing potential recruits. “They came to my school to check out some players – they saw some fielding, hitting, running. They said they liked what they saw and wanted to keep in touch with me because they were interested,” Walker recalled. Walker served as a left fielder and designated hitter in 2017 with South Mountain, making the transition to centerfield at Phoenix College the following year. Over a four-year varsity career with the Tolleson Wolverines, Walker played in 100 games and hit .429 with 83 RBI and a .680 slugging percentage. He earned two Silver Slugger Awards and the Most

Valuable Player honor his senior year. “I expect myself to be the hardest worker on the team and to be the starting center fielder. I want to be an impact player going into the school, and that’s what I’m working on right now.” Wyman pitched out of the starting rotation the last two years at Gateway. With the Wolverines, he won the Cy Young Award in the spring of 2016. He graduated from Tolleson with an 8-6 record and 4.50 ERA, striking out 74 batters in 84 innings spanning three varsity seasons. “I’m really hoping to get the role of a starting pitcher (at St. Cloud State). I really like that responsibility I have when I’m starting. I’m really hoping I can go in there and prove my spot.” The former Tolleson duo will join a St. Cloud State squad that holds a 27-11 record, good for sixth best in the Central Region in Division II. The success the Huskies have had this season in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference should extend into the Division II College World Series this summer in Cary, North Carolina, which makes the commitment that much sweeter. They’ll leave for Minnesota in August, with sights set on bringing

St. Cloud State its first national championship title. “It makes us feel good going somewhere that knows what success

feels like. We just want to build on that and hopefully win a National Championship over there,” Walker said.

John and Christina Randolph were looking for something different. Christina had been working in law enforcement, but after having children she didn’t feel all the negativity in that line of work was jiving with their family life. She wanted a new direction for her career. “When we started a family, everything shifted,” she said. “We wanted something more positive and light-hearted.” Baking was in her blood, and certainly cupcakes topped the list. “I tried every cupcake shop in the Valley over the past few years,” she explained. The husband and wife learned of the Smallcakes franchise and went back and forth about whether to start their own cupcake shop. In the end, the familiarity of the brand won them over. They opened their shop earlier this year at 5110 N. Dysart Road in Litchfield Park. Smallcakes was founded by Jeff Martin, who became well known after his appearances on Cupcake Wars and The View. There are now more than 200 Smallcakes locations across the country. Besides familiarity, the other thing the Randolphs liked about Smallcakes was freshness. All the cupcakes are baked fresh and frosted every morning. “If we don’t sell these today, they’ll be donated,” John said. Christina arrives at the shop around 6 a.m. to start baking all the flavors offered that day. There are 12 daily signature flavors, and they also rotate in two specialty flavors so there is always something new. Smallcakes has 249 cupcake flavors and counting, including red velvet, peanut butter cup and birthday cake. Many of the frostings are buttercream, but there are a few other types such as whipped cream or fudge. Something else that differentiates Smallcakes from other cupcake shops is ice cream. They make fresh ice cream as well. Classics like vanilla and chocolate are always among the favorites, but they also have peanut butter, mint chocolate chip, and local favorite banana pudding. Ice cream flavors are also rotated so there are new flavors to try.

One of John’s favorite things at Smallcakes is called the Smashcup, which is ice cream sandwiched between two halves of a cupcake all in a cup. He prefers peanut butter ice cream in between a peanut butter cupcake. Even though the shop has only been open a few months, Smallcakes in Litchfield Park has several regular customers who come in multiple times a week. “It’s kind of like on Cheers. They come in and we know their names,” John said. But that was the hope all along – to create a positive place within their community. “Cake is such a staple of American celebration,” Christina added. But a cupcake can also help on a bad day, too. The company’s slogan is, “Maybe a cupcake will help?” In the case of the Randolphs, it was the answer their family was looking for. The shop opens at 10 a.m. with most of its traffic after school from 2 to 6 p.m. Gluten-free friendly cupcakes are available by calling a day in advance. Other Smallcakes locations in Arizona include Phoenix, Scottsdale, Surprise, Cave Creek and Lake Havasu.

Avondale mother representing state in plus-size pageant

By Christina Fuoco-Karasinski With three little girls and a job as a surgical tech, Nakeba Patrick doesn’t have many opportunities to dress up. Instead she finds herself in yoga pants and scrubs. She wishes it was otherwise. “I’m a girly girl,” Patrick said with a laugh. She has her chance. The Avondale resident will represent Arizona as Mrs. Arizona Plus Queen Supreme 2018 in the Miss Plus America 2018 pageant on July 28 at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel in Atlanta. “This is the most prestigious and family-oriented pageant,” Patrick said. “It’s full of beautiful people with positive attitudes and uplifting spirits. I’m beyond honored to be a contestant this year.” To attend, Patrick must raise

about $2,000 to fly herself, her three daughters – 4-year-old Ella, and 15-month-old twins Elena and Eliza – and husband, John, to Atlanta, as she cannot leave the children behind. The pageant’s entry fee is $390, which is tax deductible. “I have little ones,” Patrick said. “I need to bring them with me. We don’t have a lot of family out here.” Patrick was born in Arizona while her father was stationed at Luke Air Force Base, but grew up in Detroit, where her mother lived. She attended Wayne State University, but graduated from Gateway Community College. Patrick has always been interested in pageants because they seemed fun and uplifting. Miss America

PAGEANT...continued from page 23 Plus Pageant was the perfect choice for her, she added. “I did research to see if there was a plus-size pageant,” Patrick said. “I found Miss Plus America pageant. When I signed up for the pageant, I was six weeks pregnant with twins. “Once I delivered them, I felt a little low. I was on bed rest. I was stretched out everywhere possible. This was my own therapy. I could do this. I could put on a dress and feel wonderful about myself. I just lost that self-confidence after having twins.” The pageant has several sections, including private interview, elegant pant wear and evening gown. Patrick’s platform is sickle cell awareness. Her sister suffers from the disease. “I carry the trait,” she said quietly. “I passed it down to all three of my girls. It really chokes me up. With the trait, we have to be careful. I have to give one of my daughters medicine for pain. I have to hydrate her, massage her little body. “My sister is 24 and had two strokes. She walks with a walker. She has arthritis. Her spleen is out. Outside she looks like a normal 24-year-old, but she’s dying inside. It breaks them down from the inside out.” Her sister, who lives in Michigan, must undergo monthly blood transfusions and occasional chemotherapy. Patrick wants her to move to Arizona, however, “finding a doctor is close to impossible here.” As for the pageant, she’s looking forward to the camaraderie between the contestants. “The ladies, I hear, are helpful and positive,” Patrick said. “I’m so excited and thrilled about the sisterhood. I have to admit that’s what brought me to it. I wanted to be around other women who look like me.” She has a strong team in place, including a manager, a Tolleson seamstress, a make-up artist and a supportive husband. “I am very anxious to show them (the other contestants) that we have a very awesome state,” Patrick said. “I’ve been trying to make sure I’m following all the guidelines. I want to wow them and make sure we leave Arizona in their minds.” For more information, visit missplusamerica.com or gofundme.com/travel-expenses-for-nakeba-patrick.

PebbleCreek Railroad Club seeks members By Christina Fuoco-Karasinski Bruce Petrarca is passionate about model railroading. As the founding secretary of the PebbleCreek Model Railroad Club, Petrarca helps oversee the organization’s indoor HO scale layout and outdoor garden layout. Club members meet at the layouts from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, either working on the railroad, or conducting simulated operations. Visitors are welcome. The PebbleCreek Model Railroad Club hosts open houses at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Petrarca fell in love with trains when he received a squeeze toy for his first Christmas. As a Boy Scout, he earned his model railroading merit badge. It wasn’t until he moved to PebbleCreek in the late 1990s that he pursued model railroading. The club promotes model railroading—including scale modeling, simulated railroad operations and general railroading discussion—and serves as a community resource for railroad history, science and lore. The members’ pri-

mary goal is to have fun, but this isn’t an easy hobby. “There are so many disciplines involved,” Petrarca said. “Model railroading focuses on precision and accuracy and history.” Some members can even tell if a train has the correct number of rivets. Control panels have been installed throughout the layout and scenery work is completed or in process. The entire model train display system is representative of

various train stations in Chicago. A nod to the early to mid-1960s when all train stations ran through Chicago. The PebbleCreek Model Railroad Club is only open to PebbleCreek residents. Organizers are looking for additional members, whose numbers are fewer in the summer. “We need all disciplines and all interest levels,” he said. “We could do more if we had more people.” For more information, visit pcmrc.org.

New Arthritis Painkiller Works on Contact and Numbs the Pain in Minutes New cream works faster and is more targeted than oral medications. Key ingredients penetrate the skin within minutes to relieve joint arthritis pain. Users report significant immediate relief.

By Robert Ward Associated Health Press BOSTON – Innovus Pharmaceuticals has introduced a new arthritis pain relief treatment that works in minutes. Sold under the brand name Apeaz™, the new pain relief cream numbs the nerves right below the skin. When applied to an arthritic joint, or a painful area on the body, it delivers immediate relief that lasts for hours and hours. The powerful painkilling effect is created by the creams active ingredient, a special medical compound. Anesthetics are used in hospitals during surgery. They block nerve signals from the brain so that patients don’t feel pain and they work fast. The anesthetic found in Apeaz™ is the strongest available without a prescription. The cream form allows users to directly target their area of pain. It works where it is applied. The company says this is why the product is so effective and fast acting. “Users can expect to feel relief immediately after applying,” explains Dr. Bassam Damaj, President of Innovus Pharmaceuticals. “There will a pleasant warming sensation that is followed by a cool, soothing one. This is how you know that the active ingredients have reached the infected joint and tissue.”

Works In Minutes

For arthritis suffers, Apeaz offers impressive advantages over traditional medications. The most obvious is how quickly it relieves discomfort. The cream contains the maximum approved dose of a top anesthetic, which penetrates the skin in a matter of minutes to numb the area that’s in pain. This relief lasts for several hours.

Additional ingredients in the cream help suppress inammation around tissues and joints. Published pre-clinical studies have shown that the ingredients in Apeaz™ can also prevent further bone and cartilage destruction. There are also no negative side effects from the oral medication. Apeaz™ delivers its ingredients through the skin. Oral medications are absorbed in the digestive tract. Overtime, the chemicals in pills can tear the delicate lining of the stomach, causing ulcers and bleeding. When compared to other arthritis medications, Apeaz™ is a fraction of the cost. At less than $2 a day, the cream quickly is becoming a household name. Those with terrible arthritis in their hands and ngers, love how easy Apeaz™ is to open. The jar ts in the palm of the hand, which makes it much easier to use.

Instant Pain Relief Without a Prescription

Many Apeaz™ users report signicant improvements in daily aches and pain. Many more report increased exibility and less stiffness. They are moving pain free for the rst time in years, like Henry Esber, and early user of Apeaz™. “I’ve tried more pills than I can count. I’ve also had a handful of cortisone shots. Nothing is as effective as this product. With Apeaz™, I get relief right away. I rub a little on my knees and some through my hands. It keeps the pain away. It also prevents the pain from getting really bad. It’s completely changed my life.”

How It Works

“Apeaz™ contains the highest, non-prescription dose of a medical compound that ghts pain on contact. When applied to the skin it goes to work within minutes by penetrating right to the source of your pain, numbing the nerve eendings.” d gs.

Apeaz™ is an FDA drug with approved claims for the pain relief of the following conditions: • Arthritis pain • Simple back pain • Strains • Sprains • Athletic injuries • Muscle stiffness and pain • Wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, foot, muscle or joint pain

Apeaz™: Quick Acting Pain and Arthritis Cream is Now Available Without a Prescription “This is why Apeaz™ is so effective for people with arthritis. It reduces pain while adding an additional layer of joint protection,” explains Damaj.

A New Way to Treat Pain

Although Dr. Damaj and his team say that their cream is the fastest and most effective way to relieve arthritis pain, they believe there is still a reason to take joint pills. The most effective are those which help to further strengthen and support the joints. That’s why every container of Apeaz™ comes with ArthriVarx™, a breakthrough pill that’s taking on joint support in an entirely new way. ArthriVarx™ works on your joints, making it the perfect companion to Apeaz™. “ArthriVarx™ contains special compounds published to lubricate the joints and connective tissues that surrounds them. With daily use, they improve joint health and can give an extra cushion,” explains Dr. Damaj. “When combined with Apeaz™, it becomes the perfect system to tackle arthritis. While the anesthetic component of Apeaz™ is working on the outside, relieving pain on contact, ArthriVarx™ is working on the inside, adding cushioning to the joints”’

A Powerful Combination For Arthritis and Joint Pain

With daily use, Apeaz™ plus ArthriVarx™ helps users live a more vital, pain free life without any of the negative side effects or interactions associated with oral drugs.

By delivering fast, long-lasting, and targeted relief from joint pain and reducing inammation and swelling that causes joint damage, Apeaz™ and ArthriVarx™ is the newest, most effective way to tackle your arthritis pain. You can now enjoy an entirely new level of comfort that’s both safe and affordable. It is also extremely effective, especially if nothing else has worked well for you.

How to Get Apeaz™ in Arizona

This is the ofcial public release of Apeaz™. As such, the company is offering a special discounted supply to any jointpain arthritis-sufferer who calls within the next 48 hours.

Trivium Prep student trading Shakespeare for pro wrestling

29

By Christina Fuoco-Karasinski Trivium Preparatory Academy senior Noah Garcia remembers the days when he was shy and introverted. As the calendar pages turned, so did his outlook and his enthusiasm for the arts. Now, he finds comfort on the stage. Recently, Garcia placed as a semifinalist at the 35th annual National Shakespeare Competition, competing against 55 U.S. students at the Mitzi Newhouse Theater in Lincoln Center in New York. It was the culmination of a year-long competition hosted by the EnglishSpeaking Union. As part of the competition, students perform a monologue and recite a sonnet from Shakespeare and are judged on their understanding of their selected texts and on their ability to communicate their interpretation to the audience. Through this schoolbased program, students in grades 9-12 develop critical thinking and speaking skills and increase their selfconfidence through the performance of Shakespeare’s work. “Shakespeare managed to compress all the different aspects of humanity, from the beautiful, to the downright hideous, and compress it into words,” Garcia said. “From there, those plays and sonnets can be performed, and strangely enough, it’s on that stage where actors boldly and openly lie to the audience that truth is fully and finally realized. He’s the human poet.” To qualify for the National Shakespeare Competition finals, Garcia won the regional ESU Phoenix Branch Shakespeare Competition on February 24. “The fact that I made it this far is amazing,” Garcia said. “I was very quiet and introverted growing up. It’s pretty amazing to look back and see myself from where I was when I started high school to here.” The stage is where Garcia has

exceled in school and he’s hoping that love will carry over into his post-high school life. He aspires to be a professional wrestler like WWE Superstar Eddie Guerrero, who died in 2005 of heart failure in Minneapolis. He was buried in Scottsdale. “Being Hispanic, as I am, there weren’t too many people to look up to,” Garcia said. “He was a very big, positive influence in my life growing up. When he died, it was the first time I ever thought about death.” To him, wrestling is a way of bringing comic books – and real-life stories – to the public. “Human stories are being played out; heroes overcoming the odds,” he said. “I looked up to the wrestlers and thought I wanted to create the same feeling they created for me.” Upon graduation, Garcia will travel to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, to learn to wrestle at Lance Storm’s Storm Wrestling Academy. Storm is a 20year veteran of the WWE, WCW and ECW. “He’ll be able to help me connect with other places and different companies, too,” Garcia said of Storm. Each year, more than 20,000 high school students participate in the English in Action National Shakespeare Competition at the school, regional and national levels through the help of more than 2,500 teachers and 55 ESU branches nationwide. Since 1983, the English-Speaking Union has given more than 300,000 students of all backgrounds the opportunity to bring the timeless works of Shakespeare to life and to learn to express his words with understanding, feeling and clarity. The competition has been recognized by the Globe Center, the Children’s Theatre Foundation of America and the American Academy of Achievement. Jackson Dean from Palm Valley

High School in Rancho Mirage, California, was the winner of the 35th annual English in Action National Shakespeare Competition and received a full scholarship to attend the Young Actor’s Summer School at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art

in London. Everything about Shakespeare, wrestling and the stage is exhilarating to Garcia. “The more people there are, the more fun I’m able to have with it,” Garcia said.

Corte Sierra student builds her way to Legoland By Christina Fuoco-Karasinski Elsie Petross-Richardson sits prim and proper at a cafeteria table in the Legoland Discovery Center in Arizona Mills. Her hands are on her lap and her legs are crossed. But when she speaks about her new role as a member of Legoland Discovery Center Arizona’s 2018 Creative Crew, little Elsie’s eyes light up and she’s animated. “I can’t wait to see the master builder and learn all the other things I can build,” said Elsie, 6. “We break most of our sets at home, so we can use the pieces to build other things. We build dragons. We didn’t break the queen dragon, though. You have to keep the queen dragon.” Elsie is one of 12 Creative Crew members who built her way to the well-regarded position. The attraction inside Arizona Mills held its annual day-long Creative Crew build competition Saturday, April 28. Kids between the ages of 6 and 10 created one-of-a-kind models in front of a live audience. Judges included Master Model Builder Alec Posta, of Ahwatukee, who secured his spot at Legoland Discovery Center Arizona in 2015

through a similar competition for adults. He has since become a familiar face around the attraction and a mentor for budding builders. Elsie joins Madelyn Longstreet, 9, Jonah Trembulak, 8, and Austin Nancarrow, 6, all of Phoenix; Ruthie Bain, 10, Surprise; Paul Bunsed, 10, Tempe; Mikey Cozza, 10, Chandler; sisters Anise Carroll Covarrubias, 10, and Lilly Carroll Covarrubias, 6, Mesa; Kyree Johnson, 8, Gilbert; Barry Bales III, 7, Scottsdale; and Diesel Andersen, 8, San Elsie Petross-Richardson builds at the Legoland Discovery Center in Arizona Mills.

Saturday’s competition, and we can’t wait to see what they bring to the table in the days and months to come,” said Joanna Hobday, general manager, Legoland Discovery Center Arizona. “This is one tremendously talented group of kids.” Elsie is no exception. “I like Lego because you can build and you don’t have to have instructions,” Elsie said. “You can build whatever you want, like a dinosaur or something else.” The student at Corte Sierra Elementary School in Avondale enjoys building houses for people. She’s quick to add she enjoys school. “Some people say, ‘Boo, school,’” she said. “I like school.” Her parents, Andy Richardson and Kelly Petroff, are pleased with Elsie’s accomplishments. In the first heat of the Creative Crew competition, Elsie built an eagle with a serpent in its mouth, mimicking the Mexican flag. “I was very proud when she did the competition for the Creative

I wanted to be really supportive, but in the back of my head, I was thinking, ‘I never saw her build anything like that before.’” Her second creation was a unicorn. “And she even spelled unicorn,” Richardson said.
