Thousands expected for annual ALS fundraising walk If you endured an icy splash in ALS’ wildly popular Ice Bucket Challenge to raise funds and awareness in 2014, now is your chance to give back again. Join the ALS Association Arizona Chapter on Saturday, Oct. 29, at Scottsdale Stadium, 7408 E. Osborn Rd., for the annual Walk to Defeat ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease. It affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, depriving muscles of the nourishment they need to function, so they slowly atrophy. Approximately 20,000 Americans are affected by the debilitating disease each year, and life expectancy generally is 2 to 5 years after diagnosis. The family-friendly event includes music, food and entertainment. Enjoy photo opportunities with mascots from Arizona’s professional sports teams and plenty of fun activities for kids. There will be a 1-mile walk and a 3-mile walk, both of which accommodate those participating in wheelchairs or strollers. There is no charge to participate. The Walk to Defeat ALS is a fun way to lend support to those fighting ALS and their families. This is among the biggest events the ALS Association hosts every year. More than 4,500 people came together in Scottsdale last year and raised more than $445,000. Yearly expenses for those living with ALS averages $200,000. “When people make donations to The 2016 Scottsdale Walk to Defeat ALS, they will be supporting our local, comprehensive patient service programs said Megan Ealick, The ALS Association Arizona Chapter’s Walk Coordinator. “The ALS Association Arizona Chapter serves patients and families affected by ALS throughout the entire state of Arizona. We offer free programs that are vital in helping

families cope with this devastating disease with dignity and hope. Our services include three ALS Association Nationally Certified Centers, which provide multidisciplinary care to ALS patients. Other services included a transportation program to take patients to and from these clinics, support groups, respite care, a medicalequipment loan closet and a children’s program.” According to Ealick, the bucket challenge in 2014 made a powerful impact. “There are so many exciting things happening with ALS research because of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge,” Ealick said. “The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge brought tremendous awareness to ALS and raised over $115 million dollars. The additional funds that The ALS Association was able to allocate to cutting-edge research projects resulted in the discovery of four new genes in the past two years. Most recently, Project MinE discovered a new ALS gene through funding from the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The gene is NEK1, and it now ranks among the most common genes that contribute to ALS. This offers a new target for the treatment of ALS.” The ALS Association is the only national nonprofit devoted solely to the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease on all fronts. These include patient and family services and programs, community outreach, and research. Participants can register at walktodefeatals.org.


The Jewish Tuition Organization hosts its inaugural Family Fun Day, noon to 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 13, at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus. The family-friendly event at ILJCC, 12701 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, will have activities, games and a demonstration of the Israeli art of self-defense by East Valley Krav Maga. This is a day the whole family will enjoy, from preschool-age children and older, to the child in all adults. It is free and open to the community. Lunch will be available for purchase. The gathering is designed to provide an opportunity to discover Jewish day schools and information on JTO Jewish day school scholarships. “Whether your children are currently attending preschool and you’re looking for a day school to start your child’s educational career, or you currently have a child or children attending another school and you’re interested in switching schools, please

come out, enjoy the day and learn more about our schools,” said Linda Zell, JTO executive director. “This will be a wonderful family day, regardless of your educational interests.” Representatives of the six Valley schools supported by the JTO will be present to answer questions and provide information. Participating schools include Pardes Jewish Day School, a Scottsdale K-8;

Desert Jewish Academy, a Chandler K-6; Phoenix Hebrew Academy, a Phoenix K-8; Shearim Torah High School for Girls of Phoenix; Torah Day School, a Phoenix K-8, and Yeshiva

High School of Phoenix. Families may speak with representatives and learn about each school’s offerings. The JTO is a student-tuition organization that provides needbased scholarships to students who attend any of the six Valley Jewish day schools. Need-based scholarships are available to any eligible child. “The JTO’s goal is to provide any child who wants to attend a Jewish day school the ability to do so. We don’t want to turn away any child regardless of the family’s ability to pay for a Jewish education,” says Zell. Funds raised by the JTO come from the Arizona private-school tuition tax credit, a dollar-for-dollar tax credit available to individuals and corporations. All JTO scholarships are needbased and more than 90 percent of funds raised are distributed through scholarships. Information: 480-634-4926 or www. jtophoenix.org.

World languages open a world of opportunity for students in Scottsdale Unified School District By Nancy Norman Dramatically higher chances of being admitted to your college of choice. Bigger opportunities for scholarships. The inside track on careers with government and non-governmental organizations, as well as in international business. Those are just some of the documented advantages that students who study so-called “critical” and “strategic” foreign languages – Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and Russian – have over their contemporaries. To encourage such study, the Critical Languages Program of the Scottsdale Unified School District will host a Critical Languages College and Career Night 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, in the Community Room at Saguaro High School, 6250 N. 82nd St., Scottsdale. Students and their parents may

visit with academics and other professionals whose highly successful careers depend heavily on Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and Russian. Those who attend will have access

to all of the evening’s presenters in a personalized setting of six to eight people during breakout sessions, ensuring focus on a student’s particular language of interest and its potential

educational and career options. SUSD is proud to offer five full years of Mandarin Chinese and four years each of Russian and Japanese. With the introduction of Japanese I at Tonalea K-8 and Ingleside Middle schools this year, students in the Class of 2021 now have a fifth year of Japanese language studies available to them. At Desert Canyon Elementary School, Mandarin Chinese is new this year. Next school year, Desert Canyon Elementary will begin offering the ‘Mandarin FLI (Foreign Language Immersion) Experience’ that will follow a cohort of students through elementary school, Desert Canyon Middle School and Desert Mountain High School. Scottsdale schools also offer instruction in Spanish, French and Latin.

While it is admittedly difficult to tell Halloween from this year’s presidential election, here is one sure-fire tip: If you see a two-headed janitor or a sexy French maid, who is also noticeably dead, you know it’s Halloween. Specifically, you’ve stumbled into the Haunted Hotel Ball, a weekend-long, three-party event that promotes the most outrageous, over-the-top, what-the-heck-is-that-supposed-tobe costumes imaginable. Don’t go there as a ghost (yawn) or Darth Vader (sheesh). Only go if you can grow an extra head, light your eyes like candles or appear to be a meal that you, yourself, are eating. (Try that one out.) Called a “two-day fantasyland” by the event’s sponsor, 104.7 KISS FM, the bash will be at the newly renovated Saguaro Scottsdale Hotel, 4000 N. Drinkwater Dr. Interactive performers, a pool party, lingerie show and $2,500 costume contest will be featured. It starts at 9 p.m. Oct. 28 and ends

at 2 a.m. Oct. 30. More than 5,000 people are expected, which could actually be more than the Valley voter turnout. Go to www.hauntedhotelball.com. “Ingite Phoenix” is a series of events celebrating the Valley in its various aspects. The series of 5-minute talks, each accompanied by 20 self-advancing slide images, an “Ignite Phoenix” event is all about understanding our contributions to science, education and culture. For “Ignite Phoenix: Music,” the series alights at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. As home to artists such as Alice Cooper and Jimmy Eat World, and the site of the world’s largest museum of musical instruments (the MIM), the Valley makes a difference in the world of music. Listen to speakers extol the virtues of Valley tunes at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 28. Tickets are $20. Go to www. scottsdaleperformingarts.org.

Hole in the Rock restaurant and lounge is a new (open three months) retro-style diner (think “Mad Men”) in the Magnuson Hotel Papago Inn, 7017 E. McDowell Rd. Despite the retro look, the food is pronouncedly New American. The menu is also refreshingly inexpensive. I have only one complaint: The restaurant is not in the actual Hole in the Rock. For those unaccustomed to Papago Peaks, Hole in the Rock is a big “O” in the middle of a rock formation at the end of a climb from the Phoenix Zoo. One of my favorite easy hiking destinations, it affords the hiker a panoramic view of the Valley. OK, so locating a restaurant actually inside the space of the Hole would be…unlikely. But how about videos of the Hole in the Rock at Hole in the Rock? Or a mural? Better yet, let’s organize hikes to Hole in the Rock, followed by lunch at Hole in the Rock. Call 480-947-5152 for info. Cooler weather got you thinking of organizing a block party? If you need things like ice chests, traffic cones and pop-up canopies, Scottsdale has them to loan.

By Lee Shappell A princely son of well-to-do lineage: That could be any number of young men in Scottsdale. But in the stage play “Pippin,” from the original 1972 Tony awardwinning Broadway musical, the title character is the princely son of the fabled Emperor Charlemagne, on a search for fulfillment, believing that the secret to an extraordinary life is hidden somewhere – just beyond – in a “Corner of the Sky.” Greasepaint Youtheatre presents “Pippin” Oct. 21-30 at the historic Stagebrush Theatre, 7020 East 2nd St. in Scottsdale. Greasepaint Youtheatre has risen from a crowded landscape to join the handful elite youth-theater companies in the Valley, according to Maureen Dias-Watson, its producing artistic director. “Not everyone gets in. It’s run like community theater,” Maureen DiasWatson said of the “Pippin” cast. “It’s all by audition. Generally 90 to 110 come

out, and the cast is usually about 35.” Greasepaint Youtheatre serves Scottsdale and surrounding communities with programming designed to develop life skills and aesthetic knowledge. Its stated mission is to provide compelling theater

experiences that educate and challenge young people to stretch the boundaries of imagination and awareness and achieve a positive sense of self. Its philosophy is to provide childcentered, professionally-designed programming, founded in arts curriculum and national standards for the performing arts, taught by expert artists. Greasepaint Youtheatre does have workshops and summer and fall camps that are open to all aspiring young actors. “But for our regular shows, not everybody gets in,” Dias-Watson said. “Most of these kids are pretty savvy. They go from theater to theater, and there are seven or eight in the Valley now that are pretty well known. “We do hire professional directors and choreographers so the kids gain experience working with more than just one person. We believe that you learn more the more you work for.” The majority of the “Pippin” cast is from Scottsdale and Paradise Valley,

although young actors from other Valley communities also made the cut, she said. The ages of Greasepaint Youtheatre casts vary from show to show, ranging from as young as 6 to young adults. For “Pippin,” the range is 16-22, young actors who are in college or high school, Dias-Watson said. In the play, Pippin, played by Nathan Sheppard, encounters a mysterious Lead Player, portrayed by Shawn Wong, and his acting troupe of followers who take Pippin on an adventure of love, loss and redemption. Director Beth Reynolds set the plot conflicts of this hero’s journey against a backdrop reminiscent of the “Game of Thrones” TV series. Ticket information: 480-949-7529, Greasepaint.org.

From ‘slough’ to greenbelt: Taming Indian Bend Wash For much of Scottsdale’s history, the area known today as Indian Bend Wash greenbelt was simply “the slough,” a naturally weedy, mesquite-covered strip of low-lying ground that carried storm water to the Salt River. The slough was part playground and part nuisance. Though it was a convenient and popular spot for picnickers and hunters to recreate, the slough also was among Scottsdale’s greatest challenges to development. Heavy rains flooded the wash and literally divided the city with impassible streams of

Hunting rabbits and quail in the slough was a popular pastime for Scottsdale’s early residents. A typical Army Corp of Engineers floodcontrol project in the 1960s was a massive concrete channel to carry storm water. Scottsdale residents saw that this would create an eyesore and diminish the value of the wash. This 17-foot scale model shows the city’s innovative solution: a series of parks, lakes and other features that would slow and divert of storm water. Photo courtesy Scottsdale Public Library.

The aftermath of a big flood during the 1970s was widespread before the greenbelt was completed.

floodwater. When the Army Corps of Engineers arrived in the 1960’s to help tame the wash, Scottsdale residents rejected the idea of a concrete channel and insisted on a then-innovative solution that maintained the beauty and recreation potential of the area: the Indian Bend Wash greenbelt. Over the next 20 years, the slough morphed in increments into the parklike greenbelt.

For a time, the slough provided a home to Scottsdale’s Yaqui Indian community. In the 1920s the Yaquis were invited to migrate from Mexico to work on the Arizona Canal. In the 1950s they settled in part of the wash before relocating to the Penjamo neighborhood in 1972.

Connecting to nature and LEGOs at Phoenix Zoo By Kimberly Hosey My son and I recently went to the Phoenix Zoo to check out the newest exhibit – but none of the new animals moved. That was exactly as it should be. The exhibit is made of a million LEGO bricks, 27 sculptures scattered along the zoo’s paths and trails. “Nature Connects: Art with Lego Bricks,” from award-winning New York artist Sean Kenney, has been displayed in several cities. The collection includes an oversize monarch butterfly on a milkweed blossom (constructed from almost 40,000 bricks), a roseate skimmer dragonfly (27,788 bricks), a herd of deer (84,442 bricks) and seahorses swimming through a vibrant coral reef (88,516 bricks). The largest sculpture, at 133,263 bricks, is a family of polar bears that took 1,048 hours to build. And here I was proud helping my niece build a rudimentary “house” one afternoon. The vivid sculptures are, surprisingly, reasonably accurate—no cartoonish animals here—and so imminently fitting for the Phoenix Zoo’s educational focus. Also particularly fitting is the theme behind Kenney’s project: Connections. Through his sculptures Kenney invites viewers to study the forms of the flora and fauna, and to reflect on the connections between things—and ourselves—in nature. “Much as LEGO pieces connect, everything in nature is connected in an intricate balance,” Kenney said. The exhibit, done in partnership with the zoo and the Arizona Center for Nature Conservation, features extinct, endangered, threatened or vulnerable animals. “Everyone can get something out of the exhibit, whether it’s an educational message about conservation and

How to make a ‘Thankful Pumpkin’ As a loyal user of Facebook, I have participated more than a few times in the yearly tradition of posting one thing I’m thankful for in the days leading to Thanksgiving. My children are not old enough to go on Facebook. However, I think that the “thankful each day” project is worthy for all ages. My solution was a Thankful Pumpkin, which will reside as the centerpiece of our kitchen table during November.

Step 1 Painting the foam pumpkin was extremely simple. I had no idea how well chalkboard paint would cover the fake squash. It turned out the answer was “very well.” I had most of the pumpkin completely black on the first coat. There were places where the paint streaked and I ended up letting the first coat dry completely and followed up with a thick second coat.

You will need: one foam pumpkin, chalkboard paint, white and orange paint pens, foam paintbrush and chalk.

Step 2 Once the second coat was completely dry, I used the white paint pen to write, “We are thankful for…” in a pretty script font. To separate the painted words from the words we will be writing throughout the month, I tried to freehand an orange line with a paintbrush and acrylic paint. It didn’t go very well. The paint didn’t lay down the way I wanted it to and I ended up going over it three times. Scratch the painted line idea. Definitely use an orange paint pen to save your sanity.

Step 3 Family dinners are a requirement in my house during the week. To open our meals, we will each write in chalk one thing we’re thankful for somewhere on the pumpkin. When I have done this challenge on Facebook, the first week has been easy. As the days go by, I have had to dig deeper to not repeat myself. While everything I list I am truly thankful for, I think that the ones that come later are closer to my heart because I’ve had to think more about them. I hope this new tradition will help my kids gain some perspective that they haven’t had before. Happy Thanksgiving!

‘America the Beautiful’ It’s been quite a campaign season. The election. The debates. The issues and non issues that somehow become issues nonetheless. It can be overwhelming. And disheartening – for me, at least. The negativity and accusations and misinformation and misrepresentation and name-calling and scandals could be enough to discourage and dispirit a regular American – or at least cause her to consider a vacation from social media. I am a regular American and I was feeling it. I noticed last week. The noncongenial atmosphere online, onscreen, on air and everywhere in between was getting to me in a not-so-good way. I didn’t like that I was falling prey to it. It’s easy, sometimes, to be influenced by our surroundings. And, while

should dress or to whom I should pray. Well, they try to, but I can choose not to listen. Remember, I’m on a vacay from Facebook. • Our nation is one of possibilities. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. Anyone can do anything – or at least aspire and try. I have built my own (albeit small) business doing what I love – that’s writing, by the way. • U.S. citizenship is a right, responsibility and a huge and great privilege. Many others outside the U.S. would trade places with me in a heartbeat. They long to become a citizen of our nation. We must be doing something right. (bullet) I believe in the words from the song: “Oh beautiful, for spacious skies.” Our nation is large in size. We have space to roam. We can live in a highrise or in the wilderness on a large plot of land. Choice is good. (bullet) Fast food, slow food and homemade meals. “With amber waves of grain.” Not only are we large, we are fertile. We are able to grow productive crops and use them to feed hungry people. And, while hunger remains an issue for too many, our government recognizes this as a problem and works

to fix it. A caring and compassionate nation is one to be thankful for. •“For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain.” Our nation is majestically beautiful with awesome sunrises and breathtaking sunsets. We have mountains, canyons, fields, farmlands, deserts, vineyards, apple orchards, backyards, caves, oceans, lakes, rivers, beaches, hot springs, waterfalls and Disney World. And we have people. I firmly believe we are our own greatest asset and resource. It’s hard, sometimes, to filter through conflicting information and ascertain the truth. This election year, the challenge is put before us. Although we may have differing opinions about for whom we should vote on November 8, we all should have this in common: a respect, appreciation and allegiance to our country and each other. “And crown thy good, with brother (and sister) hood from sea to shining sea.” Jill Pertler is an award-winning syndicated columnist, published playwright, author and member of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

the current campaign cycle may be introducing a certain amount of negativity, I still believe in the corny notion of “America the Beautiful.” So, to get over myself and my own propensity for gobbling up the malarkey set before me, I decided to make a partial list of some of the reasons why I am proud to call the United States home sweet home. (bullet) Let’s start with the obvious. Thanks to the 19th Amendment, I get to vote. I don’t fear that someone will try to keep me from voting or take my right away. The 24th Amendment guarantees this privilege is free. • Historically, we are a nation that follows the rules of our established political process. Even though the current presidential election has been hotly contested and filled with strife, after the election, the losing candidate will step aside. That’s a given in our country. The current president will vacate the office on January 20 and assist the new president in making a smooth transition without riots or violence. It’s how we do things. • I can attend the church of my choice – or not – as declared in the First Amendment. No one tells me what I should or must believe or how I

restaurant builds a loyal following Chris Syregelas knows a good thing when he sees it. A Chicago native, Syregelas watched his family find success in the restaurant business in and around his hometown, including the bustling corner of Rush and Division streets. His family started Butterfields in Illinois and, when a family member retired in Scottsdale, they brought it here. That expanded to Butters Pancakes and Cafe, a favorite of actresses, actors and members of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The restaurant recently opened a second shop in Scottsdale Airpark, at Raintree and Northsight. “It was a good location,” says Syregelas, who also owns Butterfield’s Pancake House and Restaurant in Scottsdale. “It’s killing it, numbers wise. It way surpassed what (the original) Butters did when it first opened. “We’ve been asked probably five to 10 times a month to franchise or open a restaurant somewhere in the United States or internationally. It’s an easy opportunity that we could have taken comm. spotlight

advantage of, but we don’t want to do that.” Syregelas fears that it may dilute the market, like many other restaurants have done. Limiting the business to three restaurants, Syregelas finds Butters busy each morning, but the wait goes by quickly because of the efficiency of the staff. The price point is low. Omelets start at $9.50, the signature pancakes at $6.75. “Our formula for success? We don’t mess around,” Syregelas says. “We manage our stores very tightly.” Anybody can make eggs, pancakes or omelets if they’re given enough time. Butters’ staff can make those dishes consistently great, 600 to 1,000 times a day under pressure, with a 6- to 8-minute delivery time, he says. “That’s where we shine,” he says. “These fancy restaurants have a great dish. You know, whatever is hip or it’s something really cool, really funky. Taste it, and it’ll be great. But if you come back with family, friends or business colleagues, it may not be the same. meet your neighbor

“It’s easy to do one person at a time and it’s really hard to flood a kitchen with parties of 12, 16 or 20 and pump out a good product. We really have dedicated staff. We live and breathe this. This is all we do.” He’s determined to help fellow local businesses, too. Syregelas buys eggs solely from Hickman’s Family Farms in Buckeye, and purchases food from Shamrock Farms. His coffee is provided by Passport Coffee & Tea in the Airpark. “The family eats at the restaurant two times a week,” he says. “We establish relationships with our purveyors, and, given our attention to detail, we tell them what we expect from them.” Butters’ diners expect a lot, too. Recent visitors include Kristen Stewart (“Twilight”), Scottsdale native Chelsea Kane (“Baby Daddy”) and the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have bragged about the restaurant on TV specials. “We build our company one customer at a time,” he says. “We rely on that customer to tell another about our business. It’s organic growth. That is sustaining and long lasting.

in a small skillet. Over medium heat, cook and stir garlic until softened, about 2 minutes. DO NOT BURN GARLIC! Remove from heat. Transfer half of the drained cauliflower to a food processor. Blend on high. Add remaining cauliflower florets and blend until creamy. Blend in garlic, parmesan cheese, cream cheese, salt, and black pepper. Serve hot. ‘I don’t go to restaurants that have not been in existence long. I want five to 10 years of history behind that, with consistent quality. I’m not attracted to flashes-in-the-pan, cool concepts.” Syregelas’ career has come full circle. As a child working in Chicago at his dad’s restaurant, he would give change to baseball legend Steve Stone. “He realized that was me,” he says. “We’ve been feeding for 40 years, from Chicago to here. We became friends. That’s the kind of relationship we’re looking for. We want customers to dine with us forever. “We want to feed them. We care about them. That’s how we run this business.” Butters Pancakes and Café 14795 N. Northsight Blvd. Scottsdale 85260 480-991-0011 Butterscafe.com Butters Pancakes and Café 8390 E.

Interior of the new north Scottsdale Ra Sushi, at Scottsdale Towne Square, 13802 N. Scottsdale Rd. in Scottsdale, on the northeastern corner of Scottsdale and Thunderbird roads.

RA Sushi unveils north Scottsdale restaurant RA Sushi has brought its innovative menu and a freshened interior design to its new north Scottsdale restaurant in Scottsdale Towne Square. The restaurant, on the northeastern corner of Scottsdale and Thunderbird roads, opened Oct. 3, replacing the Kierland Commons RA Sushi, which closed on Sept. 30. The north Scottsdale location is larger and more centralized in the region. “While the design has been updated to reflect a more modern dining experience and special design features, RA Sushi’s commitment to innovation continues to be the driving force behind everything we do,” said Mike Johnson, vice president of operations for RA Sushi.

What has not changed are RA Sushi’s signature Viva Las Vegas Roll, RA’llipop,o Blushing Geisha, Tiki Talk and other flavor-infused cocktails. RA will continue to serve its innovative seasonal menus, which include bold dishes, specialty cocktails and craft beers. Most recently, RA introduced a new smoky menu for fall.

Vampire Treatments may be the Most Effective, Natural Aesthetic Procedures

Anahata Yoga opens studio By Diane Meehl Yoga enthusiasts, seasoned and new, can gain increased flexibility, improved muscle tone and a renewed sense of calm at Anahata Sound and Energy Healing Yoga, which is about to open a larger studio in Scottsdale. Grand-opening festivities begin at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 5-6, and continue until the last class finishes at 8:30 p.m. At the new facility, 14148 N. 100th Street, C-130, in Centennial Marketplace, Anahata’s classes integrate sound healing. Guests also will become acquainted with singing bowls. Ronee Kipnes, the studio’s owner, has been teaching Kundalini Yoga and Meditation for nearly a decade. She embraces sound healing by integrating more than 150 crystal singing bowls and gongs. “Everything vibrates. In our cells, organs and muscles organs, everything has a frequency,” Kipnes said. “But stress, lack of sleep and various traumas shift those frequencies. Sound can help bring them back into sync and restore the neutrality the body needs to heal at a cellular level.” The bowls are made with fine quartz crystal, and the resonance is so pure that their tones are not just heard but felt throughout the body. Kipnes says many western medicine practitioners are beginning to identify the effectiveness of integrating sound healing with traditional and naturopathic treatment modalities. “Even science aside, they witness the positive outcomes created by achieving a higher state of peace and tranquility,” she says.
