By Ken Abramczyk Earthquakes in Nepal this spring killed more than 8,000 people, injured another 19,000, and destroyed the homes of hundreds of thousands of residents. In mid-May, Dr. Pravin Dugel, an ophthalmologist with Retinal Consultants of Arizona, headed to Nepal and witnessed the chaos, devastation and destruction of the nation. While there, he offered humanitarian aid and assisted with retinal surgery with a team of trauma surgeons. “The streets are lined with people, because they don’t know where to go,” said Dugel, whose firm has offices throughout the state, including Gilbert, Mesa and Scottsdale. “All these people are homeless and children are orphaned. There’s nothing, there’s no buildings and the stench of death. “It really impacts you when you see how devastated it is.” Dugel, who was born in Nepal and still has family there, has worked pre-

viously with Dr. Sanduk Ruit, an ophthalmologist in Nepal. “He set up an amazing network to give the poorest of the poorest cataract surgery,” Dugel said about Ruit. Within the last month, the network turned its eye mission into a humanitarian one. The board overseeing that network, the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology, decided to establish a relief fund at Tilganga Earthquake Relief Support Funds, and the Himalayan Cataract Project has set up the same. Dugel knew the landscape of Nepal would be filled with collapsed buildings, roads and dead bodies, but nothing could prepare him for it. “Everything’s devastated,” Dugel said. “It was worse than what I (first) thought. “It is devastating in a very sad way. When a catastrophe happens in the U.S., you have people who are dead, people who are alive and people in the middle, those who are injured and need medical treatment.

“In Nepal that middle doesn’t exist. Either you are alive or dead; there’s no middle.” Dugel met the family of Dorji Sherpa, who was found Dr. Pravin Dugel, left, talks with a community doctor at a makealive under a col- shift triage center in a street after the second earthquake in Nepal. lapsed building and taken to a hospi- the people who are hurt the most, tal.

Residents to vote on $95.9M bond comm. spotlight

law talk


On June 3 the Scottsdale City Council voted 6-1 in favor of adding to the Nov. 3 ballot a proposed $95.9 million bond that that would help renovate the city’s deteriorating infrastructures and improve public safety facilities. Scottsdale residents will be asked to vote on the bond that will be presented on the ballet as six questions with estimated costs. The list can be found below: Question 1: Parks and Community Facilities—$31.9 million Question 2: Transportation—$16.5 million Question 3: Citywide Technology—$6.8 million Question 4: Street Pavement Replacement—$12.5 million Question 5: Public Safety: Fire— $16.3 million Question 6: Public Safety: Police—$11.8 million David Smith, one of the councilmembers who voted in favor of the bond, said he believes the city has been in decline and desperately needs reinvestment. “We have allowed the city infrastructure to decline and did not reinvest in the assets needed,” Smith said. “It is time to reinvest and play catch up.” Dan Worth, the public works director and one of the members who worked on the proposal, also said now is the time to reinvest. “Scottsdale invested in the past with beautiful parks and really good facilities, but they haven’t been able to keep that up,” Worth said. “We feel the time is right to ask the voters to reinvest.” The special election will cost $500,000 and will be paid for using contingency funds, according to a City Council report presented to councilmembers. The property tax impact from the bond will differ depending on home value, but residents can expect an increase of $37.27 per year based on the average Scottsdale home value, according to Smith said Scottsdale residents must classifieds

understand that this bond is a bargain for them. “For every dollar raised in taxes business properties will pay 35 to 40 cents and 10 to 15 cents will be paid by snowbirds,” Smith said. This is the third bond proposal in the last five years in Scottsdale. Bond proposals were rejected by voters in 2010 and 2013. The funding for parks and community facilities will be used to renovate parks, upgrade chemical treatment systems and replace older buildings. The transportation funds will be used to improve the intersection of Hayden and Chaparral roads, widen Happy Valley Road, improve sidewalks in downtown Scottsdale and add bike lanes on McDowell Road. The citywide technology fund will be used to improve Wi-Fi in public buildings, purchase disaster recovery technology and replace energy control systems. The street pavement replacement fund will be used to repair infrastructure around Scottsdale. The public safety fire proposal would relocate, renovate and build fire stations around Scottsdale. The public safety police proposal will mainly be used to expand and renovate the Civic Center Jail and Police Station. One of the costliest proposed projects is spending $18.5 million on renovating Vista Del Camino Park and the Indian Bend Wash Area by improving the turf irrigation system and lakes, park buildings and playgrounds. Other high-cost projects include spending $12.5 million replacing 140 miles of deteriorated road and $10.1 million expanding and revamping the Civic Center Jail and Police Station. Mayor Jim Lane said in a press release that the projects are vital to the community. “These improvements are necessary to maintain our quality of life and to keep Scottsdale a world-class community,” Lane said.

BASIS founders Olga and Michael Block have been named “Influential Educators Who Are Changing the Way We Learn in 2015” by Noodle, the acclaimed education website connecting students with schools, programs, resources, experts and more. There are 67 educators on the list— all of whom, according to Noodle, are changing the way people view education and see the world. “They’ve created cutting-edge tools to increase access to learning; built new schooling models from the ground up; anticipated the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century; and inspired other teachers to give the best of themselves in the classroom. In a wide range of ways,

well as organizational and study skills training. The school is owned by Dr. Raun Melmed and Anita Werner, two prominent local and national experts in child development.

these educators are innovating the ways we learn,” said a Noodle representative, in an announcement. Noodle honored the Blocks for “(seeking) to create educational institutions that combined the rigors of Asian and European schooling with the American system’s emphasis on creativity and originality. Noodle also says the Blocks and BASIS. ed are dedicated to producing excellent outcomes and replicable results. Each of the educators who made the list shared a few similar characteristics. All are active in the education world, affiliated with a highly regarded institution and/or personally well known, and making an impact on the larger field beyond their classrooms and/or offices.

The Arizona Canal: Redeveloping an ancient tradition


Pioneer farmers in the Salt River Valley could produce impressively healthy and reliable crops when the river was harnessed—as the prehistoric Hohokam and contemporary Pima farmers knew well. One of the most important early canals in Scottsdale history is the Arizona Canal, built by William J. Murphy in the 1880s. After completing the canal, Murphy experimented successfully with citrus at Scottsdale’s Ingleside Inn, which helped create the fruit boom in Arizona. The 40-mile canal, stretching from Mesa to the New River, was built with human labor and draft animals.



Wagon teams dig the Arizona Canal in these photos from the 1880s. William J. Murphy accepted land and canal shares as compensation for the contract to build the canal.

A project to deepen the Arizona Canal drew George and Mary Cavalliere to Scottsdale from California in 1908. In the photo a group watches as the project’s coal-fired shovel lifts. The barge carrying the shovel was pulled down the canal by horses and mules. The Cavallieres lived in a portable tin shack moved on wooden sleds during work. Circa 1908.

Soccer coach scores big goal By Tim J. Randall When the United States began its quest for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup on June 8, Kassandra McCluskie was an extremely interested observer. “Sydney Leroux is my best friend, and is a forward on the U.S. national team,” she said. McCluskie, who once pondered playing professional soccer, viewed this tournament through a different lens—the perspective of a coach. A 2008 Desert Mountain High School graduate, McCluskie is climbing the coaching ladder in women’s soccer. The young coach, who played collegiate soccer at the University of Portland from 2008 to 2012, was looking to continue playing at the next level, but an ailing back took her off that path. “I had never even thought of coaching and, actually, when I stopped playing after graduation, I was pretty sick of soccer,” she said. Those feelings quickly dissipated though and McCluskie dove head first into her new career.

“I realized that soccer was part of my identity, and now I can’t imagine doing anything else,” she said. McCluskie coaches three teams and the junior academy for Sereno SC, FC Portland, a member club of the Elite Clubs National League (ENCL), the nation’s top female youth soccer league. “Our club has multiple teams going to the regional ENCL championships,” she said. “It is exciting because our club is only a year old, but all of our coaches and teams are very close.” Recently McCluskie’s coaching trajectory was pushed markedly higher as she was chosen by the ENCL as one of 10 national recipients of the organization’s H.E.R. Coaching Scholarships (Health & Education Resources). These coveted awards allow aspiring women coaches to continue their development and receive a financial award to pursue a U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) “D” or “E” coaching license. “U.S. Soccer wants to encourage women to coach soccer, so these

scholarships help us pay to earn our licenses,” she said. McCluskie qualified and earned the scholarship as a current coach for an ECNL member team. “It was a tough process to get through from the initial scholarship submission in January to the final approval in May,” she said. ECNL Commissioner Sarah Kate Noftsinger said that by supporting the growth and education of coaches, “we also raise the bar in development of our younger players. It’s a win-win.” For McCluskie, the coaching journey is one that she has pursued with

the same passion and vigor as her playing career. “It is a lot of hours, we train or practice seven days a week,” she said. “I love the challenge though and the wins.” McCluskie is already making plans for her coaching future. “I just accepted the head coaching position of girls’ soccer at Beaverton High School in Oregon, so that will help my coaching career,” she said. With the ultimate goal of coaching at the collegiate level, McCluskie is well on her way. “I hope to be at that level in two years,” she said.

The Clear Choice In Pool Care


Serving the East Valley since 1959

Licensed & Bonded GPS Regulated Chemical Included Professional Experienced Sea Klear Pod Added Weekly Let us keep your pool clean and sparkling, you just enjoy!

ImpulsUS holds its opening celebration service Scottsdale’s newest spiritual center, ImpulsUS, held its first celebration service Sunday, May 31, at the Hyatt House in Old Town Scottsdale. ImpulsUS (Latin for Impulse; the impelling force of God) welcomes people of all faiths interested in living spiritually; instead of dogmatically. ImpulsUS offers a mystical teaching, referred to as Emerging Spirituality, focusing on the newness that arises within an individual and between individuals within the community. Sunday services may refer to all sacred texts; the common bond of the community is the value of spiritual practice. The singer/songwriter duo, the JaJa’s, with their guitarist, Jimmi J, created a chant and two songs specifically for the opening of the center. The singers enter into the energy of the talk via meditation and, from their own inner guidance, created a musical message to underscore that of the speaker. The Rev. Bonnie Barnard, founder and author, spoke of New Beginnings for which one of the songs was named.

The idea of ImpulsUS began with a vision team of local spiritual entrepreneurs. Aware of the gifts of Eastern and Western teachings and the power of an individual’s spiritual journey, ImpulsUS wanted a community to experience this creative energy in a coalesced state. “This impulse is just as active today as it was with the birth of the cosmos 15.8 billion years ago, the birth of Buddha 2,600 years ago and Jesus 2000 plus years ago, and we are interested in the ongoing activity of God as loving wholeness today,” Barnard said. Barnard is an accomplished author having penned “A Year of Go(o)d,” “Metaphysical Lent,” and “Qualities of God and Affirmative Prayer.” In addition, she is a well-respected spiritual teacher. ImpulsUS welcomes newcomers to its services Sunday at the Hyatt House, 4245 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Old Town Scottsdale. For upcoming topics and additional information, visit the website at

Many of the retirement strategies utilized by your parents have grown outdated and may no longer have application to those looking to retire today. This workshop compares and contrasts the old retirement paradigms of yesteryear and the new paradigms of today as you prepare to retire in the 21st century. You’ll discover how to insulate yourself from the risk of rising taxes, protect your Social Security from taxation, and avoid common pitfalls as you distribute your assets in retirement. UNBIASED APPROACH Instead of focusing on a specific strategy or topic, this course takes a more comprehensive view of your retirement. This broad-based approach lays a foundation for proactive planning in an updated, 21st century context. Because of the educational nature of the workshop, no specific financial products are presented or discussed. AN INTERACTIVE CLASSROOM SETTING

You’ll receive a two-volume set of workbooks.

This course is taught by a nationwide network of instructors. These instructors are financial professionals from your community who bring to their workshops years of experience and knowledge from their careers in personal finance.

This personal and interactive approach to the material helps make the educational process both practical and informative.

Perhaps most importantly, this workshop will teach you how to develop a personalized strategy as you confront the challenges of retiring in a rapidly changing world. BALANCED FINANCIAL INFORMATION There’s a difference between taking your financial cues from media outlets and learning the basics of retirement planning from a trusted, reliable, unbiased source. This course is designed to give you an exhaustive and comprehensive view of financial education while uncovering the many new pitfalls that threaten to derail many retirees in the 21st century.

THE CHANGING WORLD OF RETIREMENT PLANNING™ WORKBOOKS As part of this course, you will receive a two volume set of workbooks that provides examples and illustrations designed to reinforce the concepts taught in the workshop. These workbooks help you follow along during the presentation and give you a step-by-step process to help implement the knowledge you obtain during the course.

Stepping stones/pet memorials Unfortunately, we had to put one of our dogs to sleep not long ago. This is the first time my kids have been old enough to comprehend death and they’ve been extremely upset over losing their beloved pet and have been searching for a way to remember him. While it’s very easy to purchase stepping stone kits at the craft store, we wanted to personalize every aspect of this project so we compiled our supplies on our own.

Set out the aluminum pie tins or plant saucers that you intend to use. Mix up the cement according to the instructions on the package, and then pour the mixture into the molds, almost to the top. You’ll have to work quickly on this project as most cement sets up quickly, especially in Arizona’s dry climate. One of my kids tried to make a portrait of our dog in glass beads, the other opted for sticking as many pretty pieces into the cement as it would hold. I made a bone-shape out of the glass beads. You can also add weatherproof acrylic paint to the wet cement and swirl it around for a pretty marbled look. We used the toothpick to write our dog’s name, and set them out to dry. If you intend to walk on your stepping stones, I recommend waiting at least 24 hours before setting them out, just to make sure the cement has set completely. They should pop out of their molds very easily and if you have extra cement left over, you can reuse the molds to make more.

Homemade laundry detergent mom cents

pasta vixen

If you’ve spent any time on Pinterest, or talking with someone who is more naturally inclined, you have likely heard about making your own laundry detergent. It turns out, it’s very, very easy to make and also HE so it can be used in front-loading washing machines. photo page

events calendar

Ingredients hearsay your neighbor 1 bar laundry soap meet (Fels Naptha, Zote, Ivory etc.), shredded 3 cups Borax 3 cups washing soda 1/4 cup measuring spoon 1 container for the finished product looking back

The classic “recipe” for homemade laundry detergent is to shred one bar of Fels Naptha soap and combine it with Borax and washing soda. The first time I made this I used a hand shredder on the soap which wasn’t that difficult, but out of sheer laziness I used a food processor this time. All it required was cutting the soap into 1-inch pieces

and pulsing until the soap is reduced to small chunks. Add in the two other ingredients and blend until mixed. Fels Naptha is great, it performs as advertised. It’s supposed to be easy on the allergies, however, it has a very strong scent. My youngest has eczema, so Ivory is a very interesting alternative. The real question about homemade laundry detergent isn’t how easy is it to make, it’s how does it work? And the answer is, it works as well as any premade, allergy-free detergent on the market. My laundry smells wonderful and feels very clean after using. The only issue is that it lacks the whiteners that are added to premade detergents so over time, clothes look...worn—primarily white clothes. This is no different than how clothes look after longtime use of any allergy-free detergent.

One of the other selling points of making your own laundry detergent is that it is more environmentally friendly than the premade stuff. So is it worth it? Sort of. The average price of a 76 oz. box of Borax is $3.97, likewise for a 55 oz. box of washing soda. A bar of Fels Naptha is about $1.97. On your initial purchase, using this recipe, you can get two full batches of laundry detergent which works out to $5.94 per batch. Each batch yields approximately 25 loads of laundry or $11.88 for 50 loads. To compare, Walmart lists a bottle of 96-load, Arm & Hammer For Sensitive Skin laundry detergent for $7.88. If you’re looking at it from the environmentally friendly standpoint, you can pick up a 66load bottle of Seventh Generation for $12.99. So it’s equivalent to one, more expensive than another. Unless you’re dealing with severe allergies, it’s definitely cheaper to buy premade detergent but it’s not necessarily better for the environment to do so.

Beer and honey glazed salmon It’s the perfect recipe for summertime. A beer and honey glazed salmon with a great story attached to it! So let me start here. How often do think about where a food product originated or what went into the manufacturing of it when you open the can, tear into a package or pop open the top of a beverage? The next time you come across the amber beer from the Alaskan Brewing Co., you’ll know the story behind it. It’s how I found out about this sweet and savory

recipe for beer and honey glazed salmon. If anyone knows the hardships of operating a brewery in Alaska—with its often limited access and perennial harsh weather—it’s Marcy and Geoff Larson. They founded Alaskan Brewing Co. at age 28 in 1986. The duo wanted to craft beer the way it was done more than 100 years ago during the gold rush, when there were more than 50 breweries and 142 saloons catering to miners who were thirsting for gold. But miners followed

“that thar” gold, and when it dried up, so did the breweries and saloons. All are gone now except for one—the Larsons’ award-winning brewery in Juneau. Alaskan Brewing Co. started with the support of 80 Alaska neighbors, and the first batch of beer sold out overnight. It ushered in a new era of liquid prosperity, unencumbered by 1897 gold rush era rules that stated “no liquors, malt or vinous, could be imported, manufactured or sold, save by special permit and then only for use for medicinal, mechanical or scientific purposes.”

Today, the brewing company has more than 100 major medals and awards to tip their glasses to—almost half of which are, you got! This recipe comes straight from the brewery and Tom West, Alaskan Brewery’s production assistant. The amber beer used in this recipe is the perfect blend of sweet and stout to give salmon a nice full-bodied glaze. It’s a simple recipe that all comes together in one pot on the stove, then mopped over a piece of fresh Alaskan salmon.

The Bleu Plate lunch entrée includes a smaller portion soup or salad and a half sandwich. In this case, it was the harvest apple salad and a smoked turkey sandwich.

Black and Bleu American Grill My son and I recently stopped in to Black and Bleu American Grill for lunch and quickly visually fell in love with this restaurant. The vibe is a modern ranch style punctuated with pops of blue and black décor and art orchestrated in a large dining room space that also incorporates a lively lounge area. The surroundings are stunning but it’s the food that really steals the spotlight at Black and Bleu, with its mix of classic entrées with flavorful twists.
