Superstition Springs Lexus, where it’s all about the Enjoyable and Affordable experience

Gilbert Singer Took Part in Lengthy Tour It was 19 magical days filled with travel, song, new friends and outstanding performances. The Phoenix Boys Choir toured Europe this past June and participated in a performance tour that took the boys to Ely, Bath, Cambridge, London, Guildford, Hastings, Croydon, Canterbury, Salisbury, Portsmouth and Ramsgate in England and Paris, Chartres, Versailles, Normandy, Rouen and Epernay in France. The Tour Choir makes a threeweek tour each summer, alternating domestically and internationally. Trips are designed to build cultural awareness, introduce new cultures, landmarks and points of interest and enhance self-responsibility. Gilbert resident Joel Jamison is a homeschooled seventh grader and made the trip with The Tour Choir, the top choir of the Phoenix Boys Choir. “It was quite an experience to sing a cappella pieces in these wonderfully constructed cathedrals as they had a tremendous reverb,” explained Joel. “In some cases there was an eightsecond delay between when I sang a note and then when you would hear it echo throughout the nave. That’s a new experience.” There were many memorable concerts in which the young singer was able to participate. “My favorite cathedral to sing in was St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. It was so much bigger than I anticipated and compared to the other cathedrals we toured. “The atmosphere is awe-inspiring. The acoustics were so amazing that the music was transcendent,” Joel said. “We also sang in the largest lady’s chapel at Ely (England), the oldest cathedral at Canterbury (where Christianity was first introduced to England), and another favorite was to sing in the Notre Dame de Rouen in France. Besides singing at cathedrals, we also sang at some other historic classifieds

places like Eton College (where the royals attend school), Cambridge University, and the famous city of lights—Paris.” The boys in the choir were also able to partake in sightseeing and cultural activities and visited Salisbury Cathedral, Greenwich, Royal Observatory, Hever Castles, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, The Louvre and the Palace of Versailles. In addition to seeing the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower, Joel was able to take in London. “We toured the city of London with the Trinity Choir that hosted us there. It was fun to ride the ‘tubes’—the subway system. We toured the torture chambers of the Tower of London, saw the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and walked the famous bridges. I got to see the Queen’s official birthday parade,” Joel explained. Although a very talented singer, Joel has plans to continue on with another type of musical study. “I love singing with the Phoenix Boys Choir and I appreciate the great musical education I am receiving from my director Mr. (Georg) Stangelberger,” Joel stated. “But, my passion remains studying piano. I hope to continue my piano studies with the goal of studying piano performance at the collegiate level. The hardest thing about being on tour is that I missed my daily piano practice sessions.” For more information about the Phoenix Boys Choir, visit www. boyschoir.org.

Riparian Preserve At Water Ranch Hosts the Community By Lynette Carrington Something fishy is going on at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch. This year marks the seventh year of Gilbert’s Youth Fishing Day from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. Each year kids are invited to the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch to take part in one of the most fun and engaging events Gilbert has to offer. Kids are welcome at this free community event to join in on a fun day of urban fishing. “It’s a collaborative program between us (the Town of Gilbert) and the Arizona Game and Fish Department,” stated Town of Gilbert Recreation Coordinator Mary Hahn. “There were about 400 people there last year and a lot of families come out.” Kids can come—parents are welcome, too—and cast their lines and try their hand at fishing. Guests are asked to check in with an event volunteer.

“The lake will be stocked before the event, but they don’t say exactly when they will stock it,” Hahn explained. “There will be all kinds of different fish put into the lake, including sunfish.” The event will also feature drawings for various fishing-related prizes for those that are present. Although an urban fishing license is normally required for any urban fishing in Arizona, it will not be needed during Youth Fishing Day so kids can have the chance to get their feet wet, so to speak. (An urban fishing license runs $18.50 for the year.) Arizona Game and Fish will also be on hand at Gilbert’s Youth Fishing Day with free loaner fishing rods and live bait for the first 100 participants. This is a great way to learn about fishing, and in particular, urban fishing that is available through the Valley. Many people, especially kids, haven’t had the experience of even trying to fish and this is a great opportunity for them

to get out and see how it’s done. For first-timers, Arizona Game and Fish will be on hand to offer fishing instruction. “They will help them and they are experts at what they do. They are excellent,” finished Hahn. In addition to Water Ranch in Gilbert, other locations that allow Urban Fishing in the East Valley include Red Mountain Lake at Red Mountain Park (Sun Valley Boulevard and Brown Road), Riverview Youngsters learn the finer points of fishing during Lake at Riverview Park Gilbert’s Youth Fishing Day, which takes place from 8 a.m. (currently closed for to 12 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 reconstruction), Desert Ranch is located on the southeast Breeze Lake at Desert Breeze Park corner of Greenfield and Guadalupe (southwest of Ray and McClintock roads in Gilbert, next to the Southeast roads) in Chandler and Veterans Regional Library.

Night Terrors More Frightening Than Bad Dreams For Parents By Tracy House Bad dreams or nightmares can cause anyone to have a restless night, but when a child suffers from night terrors, it can be more traumatizing to the caregiver than the child. “They’re usually more traumatic to everyone around them,” said Lauri Leadley, founder and president of Valley Sleep Center. “A nightmare, you usually wake up and remember. You never remember a night terror.” Night terrors occur predominantly in children and they do not have any recollection of the night terror. Sleep terrors can include waking up, agitation, large pupils, sweating and increased blood flow. Often the child will need to use the bathroom. “The difference between night

terrors and a nightmare, is that night terrors usually occur the first third of the night, during slow wave sleep, and a nightmare will occur during REM, or early morning, usually the second third of your sleep,” said Leadley. “They usually take place in the first part of the night and sometimes can be combined with sleepwalking.” Leadley said this is normal for night terrors. She said her three children experienced night terrors when they weren’t on their normal schedule, overtired or didn’t stay with their routine. “It’s really important that parents keep their children on a routine—they go to bed at the same time, they wake up at the same time. They have their

meals, their exercise and night time is a routine—calming, cool, dark rooms, no iPads, no radios, no TVs.” When a child is going through a night terror, Leadley said, “All you need to do is reassure yourself that it is normal because the child has no idea what is going on, they don’t know. The best thing to do is just comfort them, if they’re walking, get them back to their bed, but usually it’ll go away. It’s not something that’s going to last all night long.

It Wasn’t Easy But The Winner Is... comm. spotlight

Pack School Lunches for Less With kids back in school, the cost of packing a school lunch each day can really add up, making your weekly grocery budget skyrocket. But don’t worry, I have a few tips and ideas listed below that will help you save! 1. Buy dry goods at discount stores. Stores such as Big Lots and Dollar General have a huge selection of dry goods such as crackers, cookies, snack mixes, granola bars and other items for a fraction of the price of traditional grocers. Stock up on these dry snack items at such discount stores and save. 2. Get wild about wraps. Tortilla wraps are only about $1 a package, and you can wrap just about anything in them. Use them to wrap up meat and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or sliced vegetables and ranch. They are fun to make and even more fun to eat. photo page

3. Use reusable containers. Don’t waste money on disposable sandwich bags and containers. Instead, buy some reusable plastic containers at your local discount store. You will love being able to use these each day instead of having to buy more disposable items each week. You can even use reusable napkins. 4. Opt for nonmeat options. Meat can be pricey, so try to pack a nonmeat lunch one day a week. This can be hard boiled eggs, fruit salad, peanut butter wraps, or any other high protein treat.

5. Utilize a thermos. A thermos is great because your child can enjoy a hot lunch for less. You can pack a can of soup, spaghetti, stews or other hot lunch items for less. Don’t forget the spoon! 6. Forget the juice boxes. Juice boxes are quite pricey. Instead, mix your own drink mix and send it in a thermos or reusable water bottle. 7. Don’t forget a treat.

Steve ‘Short Bus’ Krause Gilbert’s Very Own Comic Keeps It Real By Lynette Carrington

Gilbert resident Steve “Short Bus” Krause is like any other comic. He’s not afraid to poke fun at unusual situations or even at himself. What is different is getting the chance to see the world through the perspective of someone who is differently-abled. “I take everyday situations and put my handicap twist on it,” Krause explained. In June, Krause headlined, for the first time, the Tempe Improv, where friends and fans turned out in force to support this remarkable comic. He frequently laughs about his own condition and one of his most popular performance bits is the “Wii” boxing game. Krause demonstrates how he befuddles the Wii boxing game by wildly flinging his torso and limbs. “I’ve broken a finger, bruised my ribs and hurt my rotator cuff doing that routine,” stated Krause. He does try to be careful, but he refuses to let his condition define the limits of his comedy. “I refuse to bring it down a notch. Go big or go home.” Krause lives with Arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disorder that is often defined by joint contractures, muscle shortness and weakness. Although he used to be able to walk with the help of leg braces, Krause is now in a motorized wheelchair and gets added assistance from his service dog, Kawana. “Kawana opens doors, picks things up, takes my shoes off,” explained Krause. Parents with differently-abled children or who live with forms of disabilities themselves approach Krause at shows. “They say, ‘It’s nice to see someone who has a disability doing what they want.’ They think it’s inspiring.” Often Krause will come out on stage and relay to the crowd that everything is OK and that he’s not contagious. “You can’t catch awesome,” Krause says as he slyly relays the punch line, and it has become a catchphrase seen on T-shirts at his shows. It’s that level

Steve “Short Bus” Krause entertains crowds with his unique brand of comedy.

of acceptance and comfort in his own skin that shows an audience that it is fine to laugh along and experience the world of “Short Bus.” Krause previously attended Mesa Community College and worked in sales and marketing with the Arizona Cardinals before vigorously pursuing stand-up. He’s been doing comedy since 2004 and has opened for such heavy hitters as Russ Peters, Tommy Davidson, Dave Attell, Carlos Mencia and Pablo Francisco. Krause has performed comedy in West Palm Beach, Dallas, Minneapolis, Los Angeles and El Paso. He appeared at the Boston Comedy Festival, the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas and was a finalist at the Arizona Funniest Comedian competition three years ago. The comic is growing his national fan base while touring and ultimately hopes to move to Los Angeles or New York to further his career. Krause can most frequently be seen at Stand Up Live in downtown Phoenix, www. standuplive.com, and at Tempe Improv, www.tempeimprovaz.com. His Facebook page is www.facebook. com/ShortBusComedy.

SoCal Fish Taco Co. A little bit of the beach has come to downtown Gilbert in the form of SoCal Fish Taco Co. Nestled in a former real estate office, Pablo Reynoso Jr. has created a “coastal, not cowboy” eating experience. He tells his story briefly on the menu: “Three decades ago, my parents moved us to the Valley from South Bay in Southern California, so I thought my East Valley neighbors would enjoy a beachcomber’s take on today’s gastro pub, serving premium microbrews and quick, zesty homemade food.” We decided to visit early on a weekday evening and we were surprised that SoCal was booming. There are only a few tables inside but the spacious outdoor patio area comm. spotlight

seats many more and the misters and soft lighting make it ideal for lunch or dinner. The Southern California surfing pictures—and even Pablo’s old surfboard—add to the ambiance of this fun place that would be at home next to Hodad’s on Ocean Beach. The laidback beach vibe is even evident on the menu, which offers tacos, wraps, fish and chips, clam chowder, salads and a nice assortment of California-crafted microbrews. We asked our adorable and efficient server, Jenn, for suggestions and ordered accordingly. From the list of coastal favorites, we chose the crab cakes ($6) and coconut shrimp ($9) for our appetizers. We were delighted with both. The crab cakes were crunchy on monthly meeting

the outside with warm spicy crab on the inside and the delectable shrimp was served with spicy shrimp sauce as well as a zesty orange sauce with a hint of honey and chili. We ordered three varieties of tacos that were brought to our table just as we polished off the appetizers. The Mahi tacos ($7) are broiled and topped with SoCal slaw, cotija cheese and mango salsa. Our server let us know that it is one of the most popular items on the menu. That is well deserved because it was delicious. The blackened grouper tacos ($7) were also broiled and topped with slaw, cheese and a baja sauce which had great flavor and nice “kick.” The chicken tacos ($6) are styled after Olvera St. (downtown LA) as each of the three tacos overlap each other. The chicken is marinated and grilled, and the tacos are topped with cabbage, onion, cilantro, radish, cheese and an avocado tomatillo sauce. Each order of tacos also comes with beans, rice

and a salsa which is definitely not for sissies. It has some bite! Pablo told us that the business has exceeded his expectations and he hopes to stay open a little later, add fire pits and invite local bands to entertain when the weather cools off. Pablo and his staff are dedicated to giving their customers complete satisfaction, so drop by and eat inside or outside on the patio or even take this quality seafood home. They are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Asiana Flight 214: A Tragedy and a Miracle Our thoughts and prayers go out to all 307 passengers, crew and their families of Asiana Flight 214.
