Design Review Board OKs Behavioral Hospital Plans comm. spotlight

law talk

hearsay

In a unanimous vote on Oct. 10, the Gilbert Design Review Board approved plans to move forward with a behavioral health hospital south of Val Vista Drive continuing east toward SanTan Village Parkway along Boston Street. The 5.6 acres of land is close to Mercy Gilbert Medical Center and other medical care facilities. Saguaro Springs Hospital, a $14-million 72-bed inpatient hospital, will also provide outpatient services and treatment. Community members have come out against having the behavioral health hospital, questioning the security of having a mental hospital in the area. Residents are concerned about property values as well as school children’s safety due to a school bus stop in close proximity to the proposed site. Rod Jarvis, a zoning attorney with Jennings Strouss Attorneys at Law who is not affiliated with the case, said the property is zoned in an intense RC (Regional Commercial) Zone surrounded on the east, west and north by the same zone and is separated from the neighborhood by a major collector street. Jarvis said that it’s not unusual for zoning attorneys to go out and meet with neighbors, and try to do things to minimize impact, such as setbacks, landscaping, building height, number of parking spaces, lighting, sound and traffic. “We do all of these things to try to minimize the day-to-day impacts on adjacent homeowners particularly,” Jarvis said. “The biggest concern typically in zoning cases, and where you find your opposition in most cases, is homeowners in the area.” He admitted that this is their biggest investment and it is their home. Jarvis explained that the hospital’s setbacks are farther, the landscaping is more extensive, the building height is lower, and the parking provided is classifieds

more than what is required by law. “This client or hospital developer and their attorney, have done everything beyond what is required to minimize physical impacts on paper,” he said. “It boils down to the use itself. The opposition has already tried to challenge. They saw it as an interpretation. The planning department held their proper due process and interpreted it and said this is what’s permitted in RC.” Legally the area under question is zoned correctly for a hospital and the developers have met the criteria of the zone. The major issue appears to be the opposition from the community and neighbors that this facility is going to be put on this land. Jarvis explained the opposition had 10 calendar days to appeal the board’s decision. Regional Commercial district, said Jarvis, is an intense zone. Jarvis’ understanding is that the developer bought the land as zoned and did not do a rezoning on it. The facility, according to the website, will consist of licensed, trained and skilled professionals including physicians, nurses and caregivers. Services will include individual and group therapy, activity and family therapy, medication management as well as stress management, yoga and relaxation therapy, exercise and recreation, art and music therapy and nutritional counseling. The facility will treat common conditions such as: depression, ADHD, chemical dependency, anxiety, obsessive/ compulsive thoughts and behaviors, and mood and thought disorders. The average hospital stay is seven days and the site states that the hospital does not treat incarcerated or criminally committed patients. For more information about the proposed facility visit www. saguarospringshospital.com. For more information or to contact the Town of Gilbert go to www.gilbertaz. gov.

Allergies—Nothing to Sneeze At By Tracy House There’s more to allergies than sniffles and sneezes. Allergies are not just a runny nose—virtually every aspect of the body can be affected. Dr. Stuart H. Agren of Family Allergy Clinic, serving the Mesa and Gilbert areas, has been practicing for 28 years. He said he noticed that when he treats the environmental allergies well—even though patients were complaining initially about food allergies and discomfort from eating certain foods—the symptoms go away. That’s not always the case, he said, but he has a food allergy serum that he’s found effective for treating food allergies. “Often there’s a cross over between the dust, mold or pollen allergies, or environmental allergies, and foods,” Agren said.

There has been an increase in food “Either one can cause eczema, asthma, recurrent ear infections, allergies during the past 10 years those kinds of things and that can that is related to peanut and tree nut allergies, according be caused by either side to WebMD.com. of the allergy spectrum Agren said being from environmental, involved with a dust, mold, pollen, to wheat allergy is food allergies.

Agren explained allergies can present in infancy, which are related to eating disorders and eczema. “When we treat the allergy well then the eczema goes away. There are a lot of kids with eczema out there who are real head-scratchers for dermatologists and they can’t really take care of that very well.” Agren says, “Eczema is an allergic disease and when we treat the allergy the eczema goes away.” Diet and dust, mold and pollen can contribute to the eczema. Asthma is another disease Agren mentioned that is largely allergic in origin and when that is treated, “We can get that to go away.” It can come from foods or dust, molds and pollens. ... continues on page 10

How to Create a Frugal and Fun Thankful Tree How to Make Your Tree pasta vixen

mom cents

If you want to show what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving in a way that is fun and frugal, why not consider a Thankful Tree? A Thankful Tree is easy to make and even more fun to create. It is a wonderful way to show what you are grateful for and even get your children in on the action. Plus, many of the items you need will already be in or around your home. What You Need: • A bundle of twigs or sticks from your yard (citrus branches work great for this) • A large, empty can, bucket or milk jug • Green, brown, yellow and red construction paper • Scissors • Markers • Yarn photo page

1. Place some sand or rocks in the bottom of the vessel of your choice. 2. Arrange the branches in the vessel so they are secure. 3. On your construction paper, make some leaf outlines. You can just freehand these if you wish or trace a real leaf or two. Cut out the tracing carefully until you have a dozen or so leaves of various colors and sizes. 4. On one leaf, write something you are thankful for. You can write several notes each day if you want. Have fun with this step!

“When it’s well-treated we can make a big difference.” According to Agren, it’s time to seek out an allergist based on severity and duration of symptoms. “If the severity is about to take away quality of life and the duration is such that it’s goes through many months of the year, usually four months out of the year, if they exceed that they really need to be seen and treated for allergies.” Family Allergy Clinic treats all ages, infancy to 90 years old. “We

Apple Dumpling Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal in the fall. For owners Floyd and Sue Bailey and their children, this cozy restaurant is a labor of love. In fact, many of the selections are creatively named for their children and grandchildren: The Zaner, Asa’s Mesa, Tiff ’s French Dip and Logan’s Chicken Sensation, to name a few. Apple Dumpling has been on the corner of Chandler Heights and Higley roads for two and a half years, building a loyal clientele for the restaurant and catering. The large dining room is of course decorated in reds and dark greens with six tables and six booths. Lots of fun pictures, signs and other bric-a-brac decorate the walls, and in the front are two large cases, one filled with ice cream and one with desserts and candy. Apple fudge anyone?

What’s Cooking? By Jan D’Atri

Osso Buco pasta vixen

November kicks off the holiday season in earnest. It’s all about planning for Thanksgiving, family gatherings and get-togethers with friends. This is the time we start going through our favorite recipes to decide which ones are feast-worthy and fabulous. When I think of feast-worthy and fabulous, I go right to my momma’s recipe for Osso Buco, a wonderful Italian dish of braised veal shanks in a delicious glaze of simmered wine, vegetables and fresh herbs. Osso Buco literally means “bone with a hole” and in that hole is the most scrumptious marrow that I’ve always thought to be the caviar of the veal shank! This dish is considered to be a bit of a delicacy in many fine dining establishments, so I always giggle when I think of my momma’s story about Osso Buco’s humble beginnings in her life. events calendar

monthly meeting

I would have never imagined in a million years, that Osso Buco would become such a fancy dish on many expensive restaurant menus because, as a young girl growing up in Venice, Italy, I remember my mother returning from the local butcher with free veal shank bones. Why? Because he couldn’t sell them, so he would give them away! We would use them for soup bones and my six sisters and I would always fight over who was going to be lucky enough to suck out the marrow from those delicious bones! Here I am today, sharing a recipe for a truly gourmet dish. I think you will love it, and I wish you luck getting to the bone marrow first! It’s one of my favorite family recipes and a wonderful comfort-food dish to have on hand for the cooler weather and warm and inviting holidays ahead. So let the holiday season begin with big blessings to all of you!

SIMPLE EXTRACTIONS $

When it comes to buying, creating or refashioning fine jewelry, you want someone who has proven industry expertise and gives the best value for your dollar. A skilled jeweler and an artist for 40 years, Don Plamondon, owner of D. Paul Fine Jewelry, is proud to have a locally owned and operated business. He also is an active part of the community in which he lives. Originally, Plamondon worked in a studio behind his home, but he was enthusiastic to move into a proper store where customers could come to shop and there was still plenty of room for him to design and create. D. Paul Fine Jewelry is celebrating 10 years at its current location, 6017 E. McKellips Rd., Suite 112 (at Recker Road). “I like to solve people’s jewelry issues and put them into three dimensions. I like to make their dreams come to fruition,” Plamondon said. His specialty is to create the perfect piece of jewelry. For those getting engaged, D. Paul Fine Jewelry will help you find or create a ring that is as unique as the person who is receiving it. Jewelry restyling is also a specialty at D. Paul Fine Jewelry. If you have inherited or been given a piece of heirloom jewelry, you may not like the arrangement of the stones, the metal in which it has been created or the feel of a ring on your finger. In restyling, Plamondon knows how to showcase the unique beauty in each gem while helping you to create a piece of jewelry that you will enjoy for years to come. “I think of it like a Phoenix... taking something from the ashes and bringing it back to life,” Plamondon explained. If you are not interested

in having a piece of jewelry restyled and would rather sell it, D. Paul Fine Jewelry also offers a consignment service. “My big secret weapon is that I have a laser welder. I can do many things that other jewelers can’t. Something they might have to take a torch to and ruin, I can pretty much do it with a welder without damage,” Plamondon noted. The price is always right at D. Paul Fine Jewelry, he said. “I don’t like the illusion of telling somebody that something is half off when they’re paying retail price anyway. I think it’s dishonest and deceptive,” explained Plamondon. “If somebody goes to a mall, they’re often paying twice retail and then the store puts it on sale for 50 percent off. They’re still paying full retail. I don’t encourage that. I try to be honest and have fair values.” D. Paul Fine Jewelry also offers a jewelry appraisal service. Some jewelry owners may not realize that their homeowner’s policy may not cover jewelry over a certain value if it is not appraised and specifically added to their policy. If in doubt, check with your agent and then visit D. Paul Fine Jewelry. For additional information or to make an appointment regarding a jewelry restyle, call (480) 325-6000 or email dpauljewelry@gmail.com. The store is closed on Sundays. RAY PUBLIC

law talk By Scott R. Rowley hearsay

Obamacare May Increase Health Coverage After Divorce law talk

monthly meeting

Arizona law prohibits either spouse in a divorce proceeding from removing the other spouse from health insurance plans. Scott Rowley This allows continuity of coverage during the proceeding, but once the divorce is finalized, it is typically each party’s own responsibility to provide his or her own insurance, and many find himself or herself without coverage. Naturally, this is often most difficult for an unemployed spouse, those with pre-existing conditions, and those older than 50. A 2012 study found that every year about 115,000 women lose their health insurance after getting divorced. Many either are unemployed or are ineligible for health insurance through their biz box

employers. Even for spouses who could have COBRA benefits under an ex-spouse’s plan, many cannot afford the premiums. According to the study, approximately 25 percent of those women still do not have health insurance six months after divorce. Health care exchanges established through the Affordable Care Act may remove a significant hurdle for many divorced spouses. By forcing providers to accept those with preexisting conditions and subsidizing premiums, many uninsureds will obtain more affordable insurance. The law also affects divorced families in other ways. In Arizona, one factor in making an award of spousal maintenance (what some states call alimony) is the cost of health insurance for the spouse who is seeking the

! k c a B e r ’ We

award of spousal maintenance. Thus, by allowing a spouse to obtain less expensive health coverage, it should lower the obligation of the other spouse who would be paying spousal maintenance. Naturally, there will be disputes as to what level of health coverage is reasonable. The Affordable Care Act provides many levels of coverage from bronze to platinum. Judges currently can decide what level or cost of health insurance is reasonable, and this will likely transition to a new analysis

under the Obamacare system. We can help you navigate these details and plan for your future.
