In wraparound sunglasses, a twisted goatee and black leather vest, the burly Bernie Kendall looks like a big, tough dude. Until Robert “Tiny” Hogan rolls up. Next to the hulking Hogan, tackle-sized, shave-headed, flowing Viking beard, Kendall almost looks like a high school kid. On Saturday, Oct. 4, these two Harley-riding, vest-wearing members of the Veterans IV Veterans Motorcycle Association rallied up to Glendale. They didn’t posse up at a bar, a greasy spoon or even a coffee joint. They were hanging out at a rose garden.

It’s a healing thing. Candy Sheperd was there at Glendale’s Sahuaro Ranch Park, helping bring her vision to reality, finally. “Years ago, God put it on my heart that I need to start a healing garden for veterans,” said Sheperd. Two decades ago, she and her husband Bill were founding members of the Rose Society of Glendale. They ran their healing garden idea up the flagpole with the Glendale Chamber of Commerce, Glendale Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, Glendale Parks and Recreation and Mayor Jerry Weiers. Everyone thought it was an idea that should fly. So Candy Sheperd called Tyler Francis

Will Arrowhead Towne Center be a place to live? BY TOM SCANLON

Glendale Star Associate Editor

When news hit that the Sears at Arrowhead Towne Center was closing, some might have thought, “There goes the mall.” Not Kevin Phelps. “Where goes the mall?” thought the Glendale city manager. When he looks at the sprawling Arrowhead parking lot, Phelps sees — potentially, at least — homes, offices, entertainment facilities, maybe even a theme park. Phelps charged his team to look into rezoning possibilities for Arrowhead Towne Center. SEE CENTER PAGE 4

of Litchfield Park’s Francis Roses. The rose guru of the West Valley came through, big time. “He brought a bus with a crew of 52 people in December,” Candy Sheperd said. “They planted 1,587 roses in four hours.” The plants should be booming and blooming in the fall. But this is more than just an aesthetic boost for a Glendale park. The team behind the garden invites veterans to come to the garden, especially at 9 every Saturday morning, when members of the associations will be on hand to guide newcomers and show them how to help prune, tidy and grow the garden.

Or leave them to enjoy the garden in solitude, as the case may be. “A healing garden is a place where veterans can come and meditate, be with other like veterans,” Candy Sheperd said. She notes that the suicide rate among veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder is disturbingly high. And many veterans have a hard time “fitting in” when they leave the service. “I wanted a place where they could meet, have a structured thing to do,” said Candy Sheperd. “They can come enjoy other veterans and have a mission. “Being outdoors and gardening is healing.” Tiny Hogan groaned at that. “I joined the Army to get off the farm,” he growled, but with a grin. Seriously, though, he’s not into gardening. “I don’t like plants,” he said. “And they don’t like me.” So what did he think when he heard about this healing rose garden? “I was thinking I have a lot of people that would benefit from a place like this, where’s it’s a safe place,” he said. He’s living proof you don’t have to be a rose buff to get something out of this garden. “If they want to talk, they can. It’s a place to go. We have a lot of people that have a tough time leaving their houses,” said Hogan, a Desert Storm combat veteran who lives in Goodyear. “There are days I don’t want to see nobody. Days I don’t like people.” A few minutes later, Tiny Hogan had a rake in his hand and a smile on his face, as he helped prep the garden. Kendall, a veteran of both the Army and Air Force who lives in Peoria, was crouched with a clipping tool in his hand. “Combat veterans very often suffer from PTSD,” Kendall said. “With this garden, they can learn about roses, learn how to deadhead them, learn how to prune. “It takes their mind off things. They can relax.” Unlike his buddy Hogan, Kendall knows his way around a garden. “I’ve always loved roses,” said Kendall. Candy Sheperd believes that is what makes this place unique. “There are a number of healing gardens around the country, but this will be the first one where roses are the primary focus,” she said. “Most of the other healing gardens

are vegetable gardens or plants.” Though he’s not into most gardens, Hogan sized this one up and decided it was a good place to be. “It’s kind of isolated,” he said. “It’s a comfortable place to come sit.

“It’s relaxing, to me.” And he had an invitation for other veterans, who might struggle with the idea of being in a strange place around strangers: “Just come and relax and watch.”

CENTER FROM PAGE 1

“I think certainly the entire shopping center industry across the country is changing,” Phelps said. “There is a recognizable, major shift in terms of the role of shopping centers and what their future will be like.” Arrowhead, he said, “has a huge inherent value in terms of its location. How do you leverage great transportation, great location? How can you repurpose those?” Arrowhead Towne Center is owned by Macerich, which also owns Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix and Chandler Fashion Square, as well as malls in California, New York and Colorado. Phelps said preliminary discussions have begun. “We talked to Macerich about what can we do to provide different zoning or entitlements that enables (Macerich) to be in the best position,” he said. “We went to them to see if they had an interest in the city creating a new planned area development, or PAD. We want to work with them collaboratively to start identifying new uses that weren’t originally anticipated. “They liked that approach.” Macerich did not return a phone call by press time to comment on potential rezoning. Phelps said his city team has begun a “four- to six-month process” to explore Arrowhead rezoning. The process likely will include community input and city council workshops, according to Phelps. “Any new zoning or PAD goes through our citizen-driven planning commission,” he added. When Phelps thinks of Arrowhead as it is, one word comes to mind: overparked. “It’s overparked in terms of how many parking spaces are needed,” he

said. “With electronic, online shopping, you don’t have quite as gigantic a turnout (normally) as you do during the holiday season. “They could reduce parking.” Instead of empty parking spaces, Phelps envisions offices, residential, maybe even looking at entertainment … The Mall of America in Minneapolis was built around a theme park.” Indeed, Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America is billed as “the nation’s largest indoor theme park.” While he is not by any means promising a massive theme park for north Glendale, Phelps wants to be “going through an exercise of envisioning things that might be needed in the future. “At the end of the day, we can be reactive to what’s happening in the marketplace or projecting forward to where the marketplace is going,” Phelps continued. “A lot of shopping centers will be late to the game and they may close down.” While this is the beginning of a long process, if the Arrowhead is rezoned, Phelps thinks developers would be enticed. “It’s got great demographics of people who live nearby, it’s right on the Loop 101, it’s a recognizable, strong retail corridor,” he said. One thing for sure is that Sears will not be in Glendale’s future. As for the recently-departed, former retail giant, Phelps noted the Sears building was privately owned. “My staff has had a lot of discussion about that site,” he said, before returning to his big-picture theme. “We’re excited about the future of Arrowhead Towne Center,” Phelps said. “We think the future of Arrowhead will be exciting — no doubt it will look different.”

Cardinals owner Bill Bidwill passes away BY GLENDALE STAR STAFF There would not be a pro football team in Glendale without William V. “Bill” Bidwill. Bidwill was owner of the Cardinals from 1962 until his death Oct. 2. He was 88. Bill Bidwill inherited the St. Louis Cardinals from his father, who purchased the team in 1933. In 1988, when St. Louis refused to build a new stadium, Bill Bidwill brought the Cardinals to Phoenix. They eventually made a home in Glendale. He was the longest-tenured owner in the NFL The city of Glendale issued a statement on Bill Bidwill after his death: “Few individuals have had such a profound impact on the state of Arizona and the city of Glendale as Bill Bidwill. He stood as a remarkable example of selflessness and humility in

his service to our nation as part of the U.S. Navy, in his dedication to his faith and family and in his unheralded contributions to his community and those in need. “His love of football and the Arizona Cardinals left an irreplaceable mark on our city when he provided the leadership and support for a new NFL stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Every mention of Glendale during nationally and internationally televised events is because of the legacy of Mr. Bidwill. “We join in celebrating the remarkable life of Bill Bidwill and send our deepest condolences to the Bidwill family.” A funeral Mass was held Oct. 8 in Phoenix. It was held two days after the Cardinals gave the Bidwill family the first victory of the season.

October is Liver Awareness Month BY GLENDALE STAR STAFF While it may be overshadowed by Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October is also Liver Awareness Month. The American Liver Foundation is reaching out to raise public awareness of the importance of liver health. According to a press release, “More than 30 million Americans have some form of liver disease.” Liver disease is among the ten major causes of death in the country, yet “there was no national voluntary health agency devoted exclusively to combating liver diseases until 1976, when the American Liver Foundation was formed,” says the website liverawareness.org. “The American Liver Foundation was created in 1976 by the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD).

COTA funds can be used for transplant-related expenses that include lodging, transportation, household expenses, prescription medications, insurance premiums, living donor costs and much more.” For more, see cota.org or liverawareness.org.

Lowe’s events part of Fire Prevention Month BY GLENDALE STAR STAFF With October being Fire Prevention Month, First Alert is teaming up with more than 1,700 Lowe’s stores across the country in a joint effort to spread awareness about the importance of whole home protection. Safety education events with local fire departments will be held from 10 a.m. to noon this week at numerous Lowe’s locations in the Phoenix area. The focus of the event will be to educate attendees about how to protect their families and homes from the threats of fire and carbon monoxide (CO). Each year, nearly 3,000 Americans die from home fires, while CO poisoning claims approximately 450 lives, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The NFPA also reports that almost three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms (40%) or no working smoke alarms (17%). “In order to help decrease home fire and CO poisoning incidents, people must be equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge,” said Tarsila Wey, director of marketing for First Alert, the most trusted name in home

safety.* “Protecting homes and families is our number one priority, and by partnering with Lowe’s and local fire departments, we hope to help ensure the long-term safety of communities nationwide.” Store associates and fire officials will host fun, family-focused activities to teach families about equipping their homes with smoke and CO alarms, as well as planning and practicing a fire escape plan. Children will have the opportunity to build a wooden fire truck in a one-time kids’ workshop and will receive firefighter hats, coloring books and educational materials, while supplies last. In addition, smoke and CO alarms will be on display, including First Alert’s 10year sealed battery alarms that provide reliable protection for a decade without the hassle of battery replacements. This event will take place on October 12 at the following Lowe’s West Valley locations from 10:00 a.m. to noon: Oct. 12: Lowe’s of N. Peoria, 25311 N Lake Pleasant Pkwy, Peoria. Oct. 15: Lowe’s of Glendale, 5809 West Northern Ave., Glendale. Oct. 26: Lowe’s of Peoria, 8497 West Thunderbird Road, Peoria.

GCU students camp out for basketball seats BY ERIC NEWMAN

Glendale Star Staff Writer

Was it a campus? Or a campground? For days last week, scores of tents – huge, tiny, luxurious and everywhere in-between – were lined up outside GCU Arena at Grand Canyon University. Around 1,000 students in 200 tents lined up as early as Tuesday, Oct. 1, for Midnight Madness, a kickoff event for the school’s Division-1 basketball team that happened on Friday, Oct. 4. At the event, fans practiced the cheers and traditions of the raucous student section that calls itself the Havocs, and were greeted by the men’s and women’s coaches and players. The community of tent-inhabitants is called Camp Elliott. The rules of Camp Elliott are simple. Groups of friends pitch tents outside the arena to reserve the best seats for games. There is a full online check-in system run by the Havocs, GCU basketball’s fan group. At least one member of each tent must be present during the day, while others are able to go to classes or deal with other collegiate responsibilities. By

night, everybody is out in the tents. “It’s definitely crazy, but a lot of fun,” GCU student and Havocs leader Andre Fitzmaurice said. The tradition started in 2015 when student Daniel Elliott pitched a tent to be the first in line for Midnight Madness. “Since then, people have kept the tradition going. It’s a lot of fun,” fellow Havocs leader and student Jennifer Burke said.

The camping experience was not too difficult for most of the students; they weren’t exactly “roughing it.” Many tents had air conditioners, food delivered to them on a regular basis, televisions, furniture and in some cases probably more space than the freshman dorms. Players from both the men’s and women’s basketball teams brought out pizza and doughnuts to the supporters to show their appreciation.

Students camping at night engaged in video game tournaments with outlets plugged into light posts, mini concerts and other self-created entertainment. The school’s recreation program pitched in as well, with camping equipment available for rent, and sponsored activities. A big screen showed the movie “Jurassic Park” one night to help campers pass the time. Camp Elliott is not just a one-time event. Fans camp out before every basketball home game. After a few days of sleeping outside, there is no choice but to be one of the most loud and vibrant students sections in all of college hoops. “It’s part of what makes our school so unique. The players see how much effort we put into being there, and you can see they feed off of it and hopefully it makes them better,” Burke said. “When I was a freshman, the first time I told some of my friends that don’t go to school here about it, they were stunned,” Fitzmaurice added. “It really becomes part of your identity at GCU.” Become a Published Author with Dorrance.

Fallen warrior’s spirit lives on in scholarships BY DAVID LEIBOWITZ Glendale Star Columnist

He was 22 years old when he left this mortal life, on a dusty road in the township of Yusafiyah, a region of Baghdad known as the Triangle of Death. The date was May 22, 2005. Sgt. Kenny Schall, Phoenix-born and Peoria-raised, was riding in his Army Humvee in the thick of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Let the record show that while this was Kenny Schall’s last day alive, his story has yet to end. His parents, Terri and John, his sister Jessica and his brother Matthew, and a patriotic group of Phoenix firefighters have made sure of that. So have thousands of partygoers from around the Valley, attendees at a

Hawaiian-themed charitable event known as “Get Leid For Kenny.” This year’s version, set for Oct. 18, will be the eighth annual GLFK, to be hosted at Sunbar on Tempe’s Mill Avenue. Staged by an all-volunteer corps of Kenny Schall fans – most of whom never met this American hero – GLFK8 promises to raise in the neighborhood of $20,000 for the Sgt. Kenneth Schall Memorial Scholarship Fund and the United Phoenix Firefighter Charities. Terri Schall chokes up as she discusses Kenny and the 50 or so Valley students who have gone to college helped by the scholarship bearing his name. “There are no words to express how much this means to us,” says the proud

mom, whose family also hosts an annual golf tournament memorializing Kenny. “I am so honored that Kenny’s not been forgotten. It’s an amazing thing that he’s touched so many people after the fact.” Kenny’s capacity to inspire traces back through a Phoenix firehouse into his childhood in Peoria. A five-time medalist golfer at Centennial High School, Schall became best friends with a kid named Troy Holtorf, who grew up to be a Phoenix firefighter. It was Holtorf who told Kenny’s story of sacrifice to Mario Martinez and Ben Lindquist, firefighters with a knack for charitable work. Lindquist, inspired by the story of a local kid who joined the Army in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, called Terri Schall out of the blue and explained the concept of Get Leid for Kenny. “She probably thought we were nuts,” said Lindquist. “I told her, “Hey, we’re going to do this party and give you a bunch of money for charity.’ But Terri did her research and people kind of liked the idea and here we are.” Over time, GLFK has grown from a shindig in Lindquist’s garage to touring musicians filling Sunbar with

rock-n-roll, sponsors (including – full disclosure – yours truly) and about a thousand event-goers who will raise a glass to Schall this year. “I just felt like I could really relate to Kenny’s story and we wanted to pay appreciation to him and everyone in the military, their service,” said Lindquist. “It’s become a kind of family.” In a time when social media can be toxic, GLFK has gone viral with an odd, positive twist. The event’s admission ticket is a unique T-shirt, which GLFKers have taken to wearing on vacations around the globe. Kenny fans have posted pictures of themselves and their t-shirts in the Cayman Islands, Cancun, Kauai, Telluride, Buckingham Palace – exotic places Sgt. Kenny Schall might have gone in his life post-Army. In this way, Schall’s story has transcended his grave in Arlington and those last moments on a dusty road in Iraq. “I know he’s proud of what we’ve done in his name,” says Terri Schall. “Kenny would be very proud and very humbled. He never wanted to be the center of attention … but I guess he has to take one for the team.” David Leibowitz has called the Valley home since 1995. Contact david@leibowitzsolo.com.

PETERS’ OPINION – Dayton Daily News

October 10, 2019

OPINION

READERS’ VIEWPOINTS LETTER TO THE EDITOR

No business tax breaks New data from the U.S. Census shows that in 2018, 38 million Americans were below the poverty line. Sadly, the federal tax code is part of the problem. Currently, the code taxes more than 5 million low-wage workers not raising children at home into — or deeper into — poverty. And, millions of children in low-income families are left out of the full Child Tax Credit (CTC). Congress could have fixed these problems in the 2017 tax law but chose not to. Congress is considering another tax bill this fall with lots of benefits for businesses. Workers and families must not be ignored again. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and CTC are pro-work, pro-family tax credits for people working in low-wage jobs. Together, they lifted 7.9 million Americans above the poverty line in 2018. Expanding the EITC and CTC would ensure our tax code supports low-income Americans struggling to make ends meet. I urge our members of Congress to uphold the principle that no business tax breaks should be extended or expanded without also expanding the EITC and CTC in the same bill. Tracy Cole Glendale

Vote No in Glendale

Last week we received our “Publicity Pamphlet and Text of Ballot” for the Nov. 5 Glendale Special Election. Propositions 424 and 425 are designed to change a carefully crafted section of Glendale’s Charter. Both Propositions 424 and 425 are designed to give the seven (7) member council unlimited access to their citizens’ tax

dollars. The existing charter requires there be a ballot item allowing the people (voters) to determine if a pay raise is warranted or not. The last time the issue came to the voters a change was approved. With salary and benefits included, the six district councilmember’s remuneration was north of $44,000 and the seventh citywide council member’s total remuneration was north of $65,000. (Editor’s note: Mayor Jerry Weiers’ current salary is $48,000; the council members’ salaries are $34,000.) Both propositions are designed in such a way we will never ever find in any good management course or text statements that require an employee to set changes in the salary for their employer. The Glendale city manager is just one of four city employees that report to the city’s council. What a conflict of interest for an employee whose salary is dependent on the goodwill of their seven employers. Both propositions are designed to remove one of the checks and balances of any good political entity. That is the right of the electorate to determine the dollar value of the politician’s job performance. All you have to do is look at the United States Congress to understand the impact of allowing the politicians to set their own salary and benefits. Our strong recommendation is to send a message to this gluttonous city council by voting No on Nov. 5 to both Propositions 424 and 425. Keep the citizens who are paying the city’s bills with our tax dollars know that we, the voters, are watching them! By the way, the council members work for us and should always be held accountable. Patricia and Roger Moore Glendale

Business offers sustainable solution to landfill waste BY ANDREA ESTRADA Glendale Star Staff Writer

At Stardust Building Supplies, improving the quality of life in Arizona and creating a more sustainable tomorrow is the ultimate goal. The nonprofit organization works to divert waste from landfills by salvaging new and gently-used materials from residential and commercial renovations and offering them to the community at affordable prices. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, over 500 million tons of construction materials went to waste in landfills across the country in 2015 — much of which was in usable conditions. Since its inception in 1997, Stardust, which is located in Glendale at 5150 W. Northern Avenue, diverted 80 million pounds of usable materials from landfills. From doors and windows, to appliances and furniture, both of the reuse centers offer materials at 50 to 80% off retail prices. Karen Jayne, the chief executive officer of Stardust, emphasizes Stardust’s “deconstruction” program, especially when remodeling. “It’s really simple for the homeowner. Our team comes in, removes all of the reusable material and leaves the space broom clean. The homeowner donates the material and it comes to

one of the reuse centers,” Jayne explained. “It’s a great way to support the community by making usable building materials accessible to others. It also helps landlords keep their rent down. They can come to us when they need to repair or replace cabinetry or appliances, and they can do it at a reasonable cost,” she added. Stardust provides its deconstruction services for $200, Jayne said. “We didn’t want the fee to be excessive for people because we really want them to think about deconstruction as a viable alternative to demolition.”

According to the CEO, Stardust funds Gifts in Kind, a program out of the Glendale warehouse that collects and distributes usable material to nonprofit organizations throughout Maricopa County. “When people deconstruct with us, the proceeds from the materials they give us support this program, which gives back to the community. We get donations from retailers and the retailer doesn’t want us to sell the items,” Jayne said. “Nonprofit agencies can come, shop and take whatever they need to help their clients or to use in their organiza-

tion — at no cost to them.” And for those not ready for a fullscale deconstruction, Stardust also has pickup services for donations. For $125, Stardust picks up material anywhere in Maricopa County, including lighting, electrical, and plumbing fixtures, furniture and flooring. Stardust does not accept custom, built-in cabinetry, or mobile home cabinets, and items cannot have mold or water damage..

LumberjAxes opens second Valley location at Westgate BY ANNIKA TOMLIN

Glendale Star Staff Writer

Who doesn’t like to throw sharp objects? Fans of LumberjAxes—a popular competitive ax-throwing venue in Tempe—can now do so at Glendale’s Westgate Entertainment District. The venue opened Wednesday, Oct. 9. “LumberjAxes is a form of entertainment you’ve never done before,” said Matthew Peyton, one of LumberjAxes’ partners. “To try and compare to bowling and darts would be an injustice. Once you go in and start throwing with your group, you’d be amazed how quickly two hours would pass.” Corey Deasy founded LumberjAxes in Pittsburgh in 2017 after visiting an ax-throwing venue in Toronto while on vacation. When he and his friends returned, they knew ax throwing would be a welcome addition to his hometown of Pittsburgh. Deasy brought LumberjAxes to the Valley in February 2018. He knew Westgate was a natural fit for the company, which has six locations nationwide.

It will have a special 30-minute walkin rate of $15 for a quick session before or after attending a game or concert within the entertainment district. The hourly walk-in rate is $25 per hour and group sessions are $40 for a two-hour block. All LumberjAxes locations have a league that would allow members to qualify for the National Axe Throwing Championships. Ax coaches will be on-hand for each session to ensure proper technique and safety for all visitors, who must be 13 or older. LumberjAxes offers fun for people of all ax-throwing skill levels.

Greenway High grad gets call, igniting GCU football BY ERIC NEWMAN

2019 Greenway High graduate Tyler Duncan has made an immediate impact for the ACU Firestorm football team

Glendale Star Staff Writer

Tyler Duncan did not have to go far to find a college football program that fit. The 2019 Greenway High graduate started three years as the Demons quarterback and led the team to a 10-2 record – the team’s best finish in several years – with over 2,500 yards and 24 touchdown passes in his senior season. After high school, he traveled just a few miles west to Arizona Christian University’s new Glendale campus. After two games, he was named the starting quarterback as a true freshman, leading the team to a 2-0 record with 567 yards and five touchdowns in his first couple of starts. “It’s been pretty crazy, but cool,” he said. Duncan was not expecting to start

(Glendale Star photos by Eric Newman)

this season, though it was a goal. He had to wait and earn the spot. Down 45-0 at halftime against Divi-

sion-1 Abilene Christian University in week two, Duncan entered the game as a backup. He utilized his foot skills

and ability to make plays on the fly. The result was a team-high in passing yards (118), rushing yards (30) and two touchdown passes, the team’s only scores of the game. “We were already down, so I had nothing to lose. I just kind of went out there and made some plays, and kept going,” Duncan said. SEE QB PAGE 17

QB FROM PAGE 16

Seeing his production, partnered with an injury to the anticipated starter in the preseason and the respect he has earned from his teammates, ACU coach Jeff Bowen made the choice to give Duncan the starting role. It was his quickness and football intelligence that impressed Bowen in the first place. In scouting, he saw Duncan making plays and avoiding sacks even when the offensive line broke down, while still having the arm strength to throw accurate balls downfield. Being from the Glendale area did not hurt, either. “It’s in our name, we always try to do what we can to find talent in Arizona. The local kids know some of the culture and it helps them get acclimated,” Bowen said. Duncan, as the starter, has a newfound responsibility to lead the offense. He has taken it in stride, leading

by example. Watching him practice, one sees here is no cockiness. He listens well, jokes around with teammates and appears to be just another player on the squad. “I don’t really do anything differently. I was taught to always prepare like you’re going to play. Now, I just am,” he said. The two-game winning streak has the Firestorm at 2-2. Starting and winning games has been a great experience for Duncan. Doing it in his hometown with loved ones watching every snap is even better. “It’s cool that my family can be there. I look up in the stands and see them, and they’re cheering me on while we’re winning games,” he said. “It’s been a blast so far.” Duncan leads ACU on a road trip to Oklahoma on Saturday, Oct. 12 to face Langston University.

Glendale student helps bring ‘The Crucible’ to life BY TOM SCANLON

Carolyn Heinzer, a Glendale resident and junior at BASIS Peoria, plays Betty Parris in “The Crucible.” (Submitted photo)

Glendale Star Associate Editor

What makes a play? Well, unless you’re going to wing it, first of all, you need a script. Peoria’s Theater Works got the rights to a piece by the great Arthur Miller, so big check there. You can do it in the park, but it helps to have a nice space. Big check there, as Theater Works has a sprawling, state-of-the-art facility — so big that, for “The Crucible,” director Chris Hamby decided to dial things down, with seating on the stage. Perhaps the most important thing needed to put on a play: the cast. The cast of 20 for Theater Works includes a Goodyear stay-at-home dad, a Peoria teacher, a Glendale high school junior, a Peoria director of nursing and a St. Louis college graduate.

They will be acting characters created by the renowned Miller during this charged drama set in the Puritan “witch

hunt” in 1692 Salem, Massachusetts. “The Crucible” opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. Judging by the theater’s reputation, which includes 30 ariZoni Awards this year, if you go you’ll see a crisp, professional production with moments of extreme emotion that feel real. What you won’t see are the weeks of increasingly intense rehearsals that culminated in “tech week,” six-hour sessions where the actors run through scenes again and again. “It’s like endurance running,” said Veronica Carmack, the Peoria healthcare professional. She knows what she is talking about, as this is her 15th Theater Works production. “Tech week is really, really long,” added Carolyn Heinzer a Glendale resident and junior at BASIS Peoria; she plays Betty Parris. “You get to be with the people in your cast, which is nice. But it’s like, ‘Oh my gosh when will all this be over?’ “It’s good and awful.” Donovan Grey, the Goodyear dad who plays Judge Hathorne, listened with eyebrows raised. “I’ve never done tech week, so talk to me, “he said to his castmates - and received just-wait chuckles in return. Grey is not new to acting, but has never been in such a big-budget production. He is a former teacher and U.S. Army veteran who was introduced to Theater Works by his 16-year-old son, Caleb, who played in “Madagascar.” Jim McCabe can relate, as his children actors also connected him to Theatre Works. McCabb, who plays Giles Corey, is a Peoria resident who teaches math and special education at Liberty High School, also in Peoria. He’s a veteran of shows and tech weeks, and says even the pressure-packed performances are a nice change from his day job. “I have kids with emotional problems, so it can be stressful,” he said. Acting, he added,

“is really fun for me and it is a creative outlet. I love the people involved in it.” The same goes for a high school student in the cast. Acting is “definitely a stress release,” said Heinzer, 16. “I’m in five AP (Advanced Placement) classes and one honors class, so it’s definitely a lot of fun. “There are a lot of people here who are really excited about theater. I get to come and share the excitement.” She gets her homework done before and after school. During breaks, her mind drifts off to ponder her “Crucible” character, Betty. “The story begins with her lying on the bed, in a coma or possibly possessed.” Her castmate Grey said director Hamby has taken a therapist’s “What do you think?” approach the subject of the play. “I think the director wants to keep us guessing,” Grey said. “Are the witches real?” Audience members will have to judge themselves.

Reconsidering consideration improves your game-winning serve One reason why I write this article is to equip people for a better life. How? By improving their serve in the tennis match of life. Did you know tennis is in scripture? The Bible notes,”‘Moses served in Pharaoh’s court.” Let’s revisit a story I used years ago in this column (2005) but with a fresh thought. The story is told of a king in Africa who had a close friend with whom he grew up. The friend had a habit of looking at every situation that ever occurred in his life (positive or negative) remarking, “This is good!” One day the king and his friend were on a hunting expedition. The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off. Examining the

CHURCH COMMUNITY CONNECTION Pastor Ed Delph Glendale Star Columnist

situation, the friend remarked as usual, “This is good!” To which the king replied, “No, this is not good!” and proceeded to send his friend to jail. About a year later, the king was hunting in an area he should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals captured him and took him to their village. They tied his hands, stacked some wood, set up a stake and bound him to the stake. As they came near to set fire to the wood, they noticed that the king was missing a thumb. Being superstitious, they never ate anyone who was less

than whole. So, untying the king, they sent him on his way. As he returned home, he was reminded of the event that had taken his thumb and felt remorse for the treatment of his friend. He went immediately to the jail to speak with his friend. “You were right,” he said, “it was good that my thumb was blown off.” He proceeded to tell the friend all that had just happened. “And so, I am sorry for sending you to jail for so long. It was wrong of me to do this.” “No,” his friend replied, “This is good!” “What do you mean, ‘this is good?’ How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?” To which his friend replied, “If I had not been in jail, I would have been with you.” What would you have done if you were the king? If you are like me, you would have reacted much like the king. “This guy just blew my finger off. He has ruined my life. He must pay for this. Off to jail with him. End of story. No good could come from this.” But, as we see, it was not the end of the story. It was just the beginning of the story, improving his serve in the tennis game of life. Just like that king, when something crazy, horrible or unexpected happens to us, we have a knee jerk (or a thumb jerk) reaction. Not considering what happened to us could eventually work out for good or some higher purpose, we react rather than act, often to our own detriment. Sometimes life is like a tennis game. You start of losing the first three sets, but that doesn’t mean the game is over. Remarkably, the king discovered the reality of that old commercial, “But wait, there’s more!” In a near-death experience, much more dangerous than the thumb incident, this life experience revealed to him a bigger picture, the story beyond the story and the reason beyond the reason. The king did something most people these days don’t. He considered his treatment of his friend. He looked at this life experience a different way

because of the power of consideration. He considered his ways. He found good in what he thought was bad. He became a good finder rather than being a fault finder. He moved from a victim to a champion. And, he did something about it. After consideration, he went back to the friend and asked forgiveness and received it. His friend could have done the same thing the king did. He could have gotten into self-pity, self-deprecation, “he ruined my life,” or “I ruined my life,” and the like. His last statement is amazing. “This is good! If I would have not been in jail, I would have been with you!” Consideration works best when both sides do it. Notice the outcome of consideration. Without consideration, you would have a lose-lose scenario. Both the king and the friend would have lost their serve and the game. But with consideration, both the king and the friend were restored. What did that friend say about win-wins? “This is good.” It also improves your serve. The ability and power to consider is a powerful ally for us. It calms us. It empowers us. It improves our lives. What is consideration? Consideration is careful thought, over a period of time; a fact or a motive taken into account in deciding or judging something; thoughtfulness and sensitivity toward others. Some other words associated with consideration are reflection, study, deliberation, forethought, attention, reflection, kindliness, thoughtfulness, attentiveness, concern, courtesy, kindness, and tolerance. (Oxford Dictionary). Current culture shapers want us to instantly and emotionally react to everything we see, hear or feel, just like that king. Don’t fall for it. You will lose much more than you will gain. Reconsider consideration. It’s a game changer for you and your kin. Your serve!

Community steps up to help Children’s Hospital BY GLENDALE STAR STAFF Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation announced it raised more than $831,000 in September for its Step Up Stop Cancer campaign for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The total includes cash and in-kind donations from businesses and individuals. Step Up Stop Cancer kicked off on Sept. 1 with an Arizona Diamondbacks game, which brought Phoenix Children’s patient Angel Carden to the pitching mound to throw the game’s ceremonial first pitch. Local businesses joined this movement to support childhood cancer research through cause-marketing campaigns that included menu item specials, days of giving and donations at registers, which raised funds for the Hospital’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD). “We are just astounded by the in-

credible support the community has provided our patients at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in 2019,” said Steve Schnall, senior vice president and chief development officer at Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Thanks to the generosity of businesses and individuals in the community, we can continue to broaden the life-saving care at the CCBD.” Step Up Stop Cancer united restaurants, small businesses and corporate sponsors to bring the focus of childhood cancer to the forefront during September. Additional fundraisers included kid-operated lemonade stands, special events and much more. More than 20 businesses held a special fundraiser and raised awareness, including Arizona Diamondbacks, Camelback Volkswagen Subaru | Camelback Hyundai Kia, Cobblestone Auto Spa, MI Windows and

Doors, Smile Generation, Coulter Cadillac Phoenix, Layton Construction Company and Massage Envy. For more information about Step Up Stop Cancer visit stepupwithpch. org. Phoenix Children’s Hospital is Arizona’s only children’s hospital recognized by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospital. Phoenix Children’s provides worldclass inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.

BY GLENDALE STAR STAFF On Oct. 3, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman released an update regarding the abundance of School Safety Program grant applications. The response likely “will far exceed” the money approved. “One of the greatest wins of the 2019 legislative session was the expansion of Arizona’s School Safety Program, which allocated $20 million of new funding for school counselors, social workers and school resource officers,” said Hoffman. “After closing the grant application, our department has spent this past week conducting an initial review of the 896 applications submitted by 284 school districts and charter school organizations from across the state.” She said there were more than 1,100 position requests, with requests for school counselors comprising roughly 40%t of the total requests. Of the to-

tal, 34% were for a school-based social worker and about 26% for a school resource officer. “While it will take some time to get a complete picture of what schools have requested, our initial analysis shows that the demand will far exceed the $20 million in appropriated funds,” said Hoffman. “School safety and the social wellness of our students is a top priority for my administration, and I recognize the urgent need for additional funds to meet the demand of school communities.” Hoffman concluded that more funding is needed. “I look forward to a continuing dialogue with the governor’s office and the legislature to address the clear and immediate need for more funding for this program,” she said. “I urge our state leaders to join my call to action to meet the safety needs of our schools without delay.”
