Champion youth golfer turns bogey into birdie comm. spotlight

law talk

Often on the golf course a seemingly poor shot takes a fortunate bounce, opening up a chance to make a birdie, or change the complexion of a round. It’s said that golf and life imitate each other. For 9-year-old golf champion Gracie McGovern, a bad break turned into a fortuitous win. Last year, Gracie stormed to victory at Pinehurst, North Carolina, winning the U.S. Kids Golf World Championships. With her father, Sean, as coach and mentor, the pair began the defense of her title by competing in June at the U.S. Kids Arizona State Invitational, where she obliterated the field by 12 shots. The family returned home and, the next morning, found her golf clubs were missing. “I had mistakenly left Gracie’s clubs in the front seat of our car, and the vehicle was broken into,” McGovern said. classifieds

Gracie’s blades, the same set she had used since her first competitive round at age 7; her rangefinder; training tools; personal golf memorabilia; and a custom bag given to her by the PGA professionals at McCormick Ranch Golf Club had been stolen. “I was so sad when my dad told me what had happened,” Gracie said. Immediately her dad and friends called the owners of local sports stores to alert them that Gracie’s stolen golf clubs may show up at their establishments. The proactive stance worked. Greg Haase of Play It Again Sports in Tempe was approached by the two female thieves after the phone call and he notified the police. “I was so happy that my clubs were found. I really thank Mr. Haase for what he did,” Gracie said. It was good timing. The prodigy was

City reviews court’s decision to toss ban on sign walkers By Ken Abramczyk

The City of Scottsdale is reviewing a ruling by the Arizona Court of Appeals against the municipality’s ordinance that banned sign walkers. The appellate court recently threw out the ban on sign walkers, people who carry signs to advertise local businesses. Scottsdale leaders argued that the walkers were a distraction to passing motorists and an eyesore in the community. According to pleas filed in court, the City’s primary concerns were safety and aesthetics, said Bruce Washburn, Scottsdale city attorney. “The judges gave (the case) serious consideration and came to a decision,” Washburn said. “Obviously we would have wished for a different decision.” In 2008, the Arizona Legislature passed a law that pre-empted City bans on sign walkers’ use of public sidewalks and made the practice legal throughout the state. But Scottsdale continued to enforce its ban. In 2014, legislators passed a law prohibiting cities from barring sign walkers. The City of Scottsdale filed a lawsuit against the State, claiming its authority as a charter city trumped Arizona law. The appellate court ruled the City can’t override that.

July 15, 2015

The Goldwater Institute represented Jim Torgeson and his company, Sign King, and argued the ban violated Torgeson’s and his employees’ right to free speech under the Arizona and U.S. constitutions. The institute argued that protecting free speech is a statewide interest that justifies the State statute and pre-empts Scottsdale’s ban. Clint Bolick, the vice president of litigation for the Goldwater Institute, called it “a victory for the little guy against the government Goliath.” “Scottsdale tried to extinguish an entire industry and the people who earn their living in an innocent way,” Bolick said. “The court decided that Scottsdale can reasonably regulate sign walkers, but cannot ban them. That’s the right balance.” Washburn said recently he had completed a review of the ruling and was in the process of sending it to the council, but would not comment on what he was recommending until he informed the council. The City’s options include appealing to the Arizona Supreme Court or revising its regulations to abide by the ruling. “That (decision) will depend on the council,” Washburn said.

Her books appear in 30 languages. “This is an amazing lineup of professionals, who will all be here to help conference attendees attain success,” said Dana King-Esquer, Write Now! publicity chairwoman. “We have many award-winning authors in our program, such as Simon Wood, Hilary Davidson and Deborah J. Ledford. They will discuss how to write an exceptional story, how to stand apart and attract an agent or publisher, and effectively promote your books for maximum sales. Ms. Ledford, who is also a screenwriter and producer, and Christina Cox, the well-known actress, screenwriter and motion picture producer, will address writing and adapting screenplays.”

Scottsdale resident serves up an ace By Tim J. Randall

Sherri Bronson returned triumphantly to Scottsdale in late June, after leading her team to the Alice Marble Cup at the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Seniors World Team Championships in La Baule, France. “To play for your country and be part of our winning team is amazing,” Bronson said. The 61-year-old, United States Tennis Association (USTA) Central Arizona Hall of Fame member served as captain of the squad at tennis’ senior version of the popular Davis and Fed Cup tournaments. In securing the Alice Marble Cup, Bronson’s team—Tina Karwasky of Glendale, California, Wendy McColskey of Durham, North Carolina and Carolyn Nichols of Rancho Santa Fe, California—joined three other American teams in the championships. “This was a great win, because we beat Great Britain in the finals, the team that we lost the cup to last year,” she said. En route to victory over Great Britain, Bronson played in the doubles matches overcoming Australia and Argentina, while skilfully matching her top players in the single matches. “I just set the line-up, but you never know,” she said. Winning is nothing new for Bronson, who has captured more than 15 titles worldwide, including an individual world championship. “I never get burned out playing,” she said. “I just love picking up a racquet and competing.” But tennis victories are not Bronson’s greatest triumph. That would be her win over breast cancer, a battle she

15

fought while continuing to play. Bronson won tournaments even while undergoing radiation treatment. Bronson plays in all four of the senior U.S National Tournaments, and as many of the other top-level competitions as she can enter. “I play on all surfaces: indoor, grass, clay and hard court; and compete in USTA singles, doubles and mixed doubles in multiple age groups,” she said. Following her victory at the ITF World Team Championships, Bronson posted a strong showing at the World Individual Championships from June 14 to June 21. “I got knocked out in the third round, but my teammates from the Alice Marble Cup, Carolyn Nichols and Tina Karwasky, played in the finals.” With her love of the sport, which she picked up after playing college basketball, Bronson is serving and volleying six days a week. “It’s tough to play in the summer, I am always looking for uninjured and heat tolerant competition,” she said. Next for the champion is the USTA National Grass Courts title in New York, and Bronson is already gearing up to defend the Alice Marble Cup in 2016. “Next year the tournament is going to be held indoor on hard court, which will be challenging,” she said. Bronson’s competition should take note. “I’ll be playing ‘til I drop over. I have no plans on slowing down or quitting the game,” she said.

Thunderbird II trained 5,500 pilots from 1942 to 1945.

Scottsdale Airport’s roots in Hollywood and World War II According to a 1943 article in Time Magazine, Scottsdale’s airport began in “a cozy booth in Beverly Hills’ swank Chasen’s Restaurant.” There, high-powered Hollywood agent Leland Hayward and aviation-industry veteran John Howard Connelly decided to form Southwest Airways (no connection to Southwest Airlines), a civilian company contracted to train pilots for the U.S. Army Air Corps

during World War II. In the summer of 1942, Southwest Airways opened Thunderbird II airfield in North Scottsdale. Thunderbird II was one of three facilities where Southwest minted new pilots for the war effort. The seed money for Thunderbird II, which eventually became Scottsdale Airport, came from the likes of Hollywood stars such as James Stewart and Henry Fonda.

The airfield reached its peak activity in late 1943 and in one month graduated 615 pilots.

The interns choose from organizations that address such subjects such as the environment, civil rights, LGBT equality and church-state separation, and which include the NAACP, the AFL-CIO and The Interfaith Alliance. Swift, whose main interest is economics, was assigned to the Center for Responsible Lending, which fights predatory lending practices. “We’ve been working on such issues as payday loans and for-profit colleges,” Swift said. “The issue of payday loans wasn’t on my radar before, but this experience has made me realize that it really is an economic equality issue. Payday loans target poor people who need the money.” Swift might have spent the summer at the beach, but her background compelled her to do something more productive for humanity. “In the Reform Jewish community, we have the concept of Tikkun Olam, meaning ‘repairing the world’ in Hebrew,” she said. “We engage in a lot of community

projects and fundraising to help fix problems. It’s been a part of my life for a long time.” Swift’s D.C. summer hasn’t all been call-of-duty. After morning classes and afternoon internships, the students have spent nights and weekends exploring the cultural attractions of the nation’s capital. “Being in D.C. is a really exciting opportunity. We’ve been to the monuments at night, when they’re especially moving,” Swift said. Swift was born in Connecticut, but has lived in Scottsdale since she was 5 years old. Now life is taking her back to the East Coast. Swift said she plans to spend a few weeks with family in Scottsdale before leaving in August for Ithaca, New York, where she has transferred to Cornell University from ASU. Her major at Cornell will be industrial and labor relations. Swift said she believes the internship was good preparation for her major. “It’s been a very productive way to spend my summer.”

Scottsdale resident studies names of school sports venue Eight Scottsdale schools are represented in the new book “Who is Gym?” which focuses on telling the stories behind the names of Arizona high school sports venues. Written by Arizona native and 30year high school football and baseball official Scott Hanson, “Who is Gym?” is the result of three years of research and interviews with Arizona’s high school athletic directors, administrators, alumni, librarians, local historians, long-time school employees, relatives of those honored, the honorees themselves and others who may have known the people whose names adorn the buildings and fields across Arizona. “The idea for the book started three years ago on a Friday night at Cactus High School as my football crew was preparing to officiate the school’s varsity football game,” Hanson said. “The field was named M.L. Huber Stadium. Not familiar with Huber, I asked a couple people at the school who he was. To my surprise, they didn’t know who Huber was either. Then a week later, our football crew was at Independence High School and I asked about the story behind their Tolmachoff Stadium. I got the same answer. It was then that I was motivated to action.” His first action was a conversation with Arizona state historian Marshall Trimble. July 15, 2015

“We got to talking, and Marshall was quick to point out there was no one place where all of this history lived. No collection. No official records,” Hanson said. “He told me right then and there I should take it upon myself to create a record and collection for our state. Those were powerful words.” Scottsdale is well represented in the book—telling the stories behind the stadiums, ball fields and gyms at: • Horizon High School • Notre Dame Prep • Scottsdale Christian Academy • Scottsdale Prep • Thunderbird Adventist • Coronado High School • Chaparral High School • Saguaro High School “Stories people can expect from the book include a great one from Chaparral,” Hanson said. “Jeff Oscarson Softball Field is named after Jeff Oscarson, who led the Lady Firebirds to 17 region championships, five state titles, including four straight 4A crowns in 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998, along with a 5A championship in 1989. “His teams also had runner-up finishes in 1993 and 1994. In 1997 USA Today ranked his team No. 3 and in 1998 it was ranked No. 1 nationally.” “Who is Gym?” is available for purchase for $19.95, plus shipping and handling.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP You will find this workshop relevant if you are developing a retirement plan, nearing retirement, or recently retired. Regardless of your stage in the process, you’ll learn updated strategies that will help you build and preserve wealth in volatile times. Above all, this workshop is designed to help you assess your current financial position, then lay out a personalized roadmap that helps you achieve your retirement goals. WHY THIS WORKSHOP MATTERS

For additional workshop dates, locations, more information, or to register online please visit: www.myretirementclass.com

PROVIDED IN THIS COURSE

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. Page 16

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. They often supplement their presentation with real life stories and experiences to help personalize the principles and strategies taught in their workshops. 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 workshop 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. OPTIONAL ONE-ON-ONE STRATEGY SESSION If you have questions on how the principles you learned in this workshop apply specifically to your financial situation, you may arrange for a private strategy session with your instructor after the conclusion of the course. The strategy session is complimentary for all attendees but is not required.

Money grows on walls at Tortilla Flat By Kimberly Hosey

My son and I like to travel to outof-the-way places, but it’s not often that we find ourselves in the middle of town—and in the middle of nowhere—at the same time. With a population of six, Tortilla Flat might make that very short list. It also may be the only entire town that is a destination you can see in a few hours with your family. Tortilla Flat, located northeast of Apache Junction and two miles past Canyon Lake on Apache Trail, boasts the distinction of being the last surviving stagecoach stop on the historic Apache Trail. The unincorporated town knows how to make the most of its tourist appeal, and has been hosting visitors for over a century.

SERVICES OFFERED:

Arguably the main attraction is the Superstition Saloon, a bar and restaurant known for its decor, chili and burgers. Sadly for my son, it does not feature kick-in-able, cartoon-style saloon doors, but he made a show of identifying himself as the “rootin’-est, shootin’-est” as we entered, anyway. (I’m sure other patrons were duly impressed.) We visited not for food, but to see the artwork. In addition to the Western themes painted through much of the town (even the bathroom stalls have saloon-character art), Tortilla Flat has a rich history—literally. Tens of thousands of dollar bills paper nearly every wall and surface in the restaurant. The saloon started as a hangout

for Roosevelt Dam workers in the early 1900s. Workers would leave a dollar with their name on it on the wall so they could always return for a cold one. That’s how the tradition of pinning dollars to the restaurant’s walls got started—a tradition that’s grown

to an estimated $80,000 pinned to nearly every wall, ceiling, beam and other surface in the saloon and other buildings in Tortilla Flat. You can join in the tradition: Just sign your name on a dollar bill, hand it over at the bar, ... continues on page 19

Costco vs. Amazon Prime mom cents

pasta vixen

I’m not a couponer. If I need something, it’s usually because I’m about to run out of it and I need it quickly. Conversely, if I have a coupon, it’s almost always for something I don’t need. That being said, I do like to save money wherever I can. In my world, the only thing that rivals finding a good deal is finding a good deal for which I don’t have to jump through a bunch of hoops. Like all big-box stores, Costco has good prices on some things and really terrible prices on others. I agree with every article I’ve ever read that buying fresh produce at Costco for nonparty use is a sure way to end up with spoiled vegetables. There are things I won’t buy anywhere else, however, like toilet paper and garbage bags. I wouldn’t buy anywhere else, that is, until I finally broke down and bought a year’s subscription to Amazon Prime while it was on sale for $79. photo page

I decided to give Prime a shot because I am also a cord cutter and I had read that Amazon Prime’s online streaming service was really good. (More on that next month.) In the meantime, I now have free shipping on anything sold through Prime. Thanks to Amazon’s fulfillment warehouse in Goodyear, I’ve had items arrive on my doorstep within a few hours of clicking “checkout.” It’s the ultimate in last-minute shopping and I don’t even have to set foot in a retail store. Aside from specialty gifts with free shipping, is there a benefit to ordering off of Amazon Prime versus heading to Costco? After all, Amazon Prime doesn’t offer free samples of delicious food as I meander up and down the aisles. The answer to that question is “it depends.” For example, I realized after a recent Costco run that I’d forgotten

Coke fridge-pack, Prime Pantry prices aren’t cheaper than Costco but they allow for shopping from the comfort of home. If Amazon only sold gifts and books then Prime membership wouldn’t compete with Costco at all. As someone who’s not known for planning ahead, there’s no way I’d survive with only a Prime membership. To that point, it’s also nice to be able to order an exotic gift at the last minute and have it shipped for free. Where Prime falls short in last-minute grocery shopping it more than makes up for in last-minute and impulse shopping. If I had to choose only one, I get more everyday use out of my Costco membership, but it sure is nice to take advantage of all that Amazon has to offer without having to pay extra for shipping.

coffee and I was about to run out of it but I didn’t want to go back to impulse-shopping heaven. Upon searching Amazon, I saw that they offer many of the same brands as Costco but at $10 more—even with Prime shipping. Other things, like toilet paper, fare much better. While Costco sells Cottonelle Ultra Comfort Care in a 36pack for $34.99 (97 cents/roll), it can be had in a 32-pack for $15.96 (49 cents/roll) from Amazon. Products like paper towels seem to vary greatly depending on brand, as does laundry detergent. A relatively new Amazon service that I haven’t tried out yet is Prime Pantry. Shoppers fill a 45-pound box for a flat shipping rate of $5.99, all guided by a handy tracking window to ensure not going over on box weight. Based on pricing out some items like a

River rock animals

Sometimes projects that I do with my kids have a clear purpose, such as a holiday craft or as a gift. Sometimes, we do it merely “because it’s cute and fun.” River rock animals are cute and fun, and as a bonus, easy to make!

River rocks, plastic drop cloth, outdoor glue (like Gorilla Glue), outdoor acrylic paint and paint brushes. You will need the following:

Step 1 Even if you don’t have river rocks as an integral part of your landscape like I do, you know someone who does. The hardest part of this project was finding appropriately shaped rocks, which took 10 minutes. In this case, I made quail, lizards and frogs. Once I selected a rock for the body of the animal, I put it on the lawn and then searched for other rocks that resembled heads, legs or tails.

Step 2 After washing the rocks to remove excess dirt, I laid them all out on a plastic drop cloth into the shapes I’d imagined. The only cheat I used was glass beads for eyes. I just couldn’t find anything small and round enough to pass for cartoon-like frog eyes. Once the animal bodies were reassembled, I glued them together. I used Gorilla Glue, but in the future I would use a different adhesive like all-weather epoxy. One of the selling points of Gorilla Glue is that it expands as it cures to fill areas that may have missed being glued. For this project, however, it just bulged out in places I didn’t want it to show up. I used tape to hold pieces in place if they weren’t cooperating on their own.

Step 3 Once the glue was dry, my kids and I painted the animals. While my kids chose fantastical color schemes, I wanted to go for a more realistic look. I painted the lizard to look like a bluebelly that lives in my vegetable garden and the quail could be any number of birds strutting their stuff on my parents’ fence. When the paint dried, we set them out in our yard. Some are hiding under plants, others are having a party for all to see. They add a whimsical touch to our yard which my kids find quite amusing.

Grilled Salmon I’d love to tell you that I’m fond of salmon, or fish of any kind. The truth is, unless it’s fresh Rocky Point shrimp or a big bowl of Cioppino, I tend to pass on fish in lieu of ribs, chicken or a tasty hanger steak. So, when I come across a recipe that reintroduces the wonderful flavor and texture of salmon, it goes right into my “go-to” file. This gorgeous, award-winning baked salmon dish is slathered with a mixture of sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, herbs and olive oil. You’ll want to make a little extra for leftovers, because the second recipe I’m sharing is for a beer and balsamic dressing that gets poured over a chilled salmon salad. The salmon recipe is from Canadian barbecue champion David Veljacic, who had been barbecuing competitively for eight years and capturing awards internationally for his salmon dish be-

fore taking the granddaddy of all barbecue prizes from the Kansas City Barbecue Society. The recipe is fantastic, with fresh salmon either grilled or baked in the oven. The second recipe is a beer and balsamic dressing I found in the “Cooking with Alaskan Beer Cookbook.” For years, the Alaskan Brewery in Juneau has been winning honors for its beer, and it finally decided to compile a cookbook featuring their favorite recipes that pair great food with their gold medal brews. Both recipes make great light meals that we’re all craving this time of year. If you have a fish recipe that you think our readers would love to try, email me. While you’re there, check out more recipes and cooking tips at www. jandatri.com.

8 large cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley 2 tablespoons minced sun-dried tomatoes 1/4 cup olive oil 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, boned

Sprinkle the garlic and salt in a shallow dish. Mash the garlic with the blade of a knife. (Jan’s Note: I simply chopped the garlic on a cutting board, added the salt into the garlic and continued to chop until garlic and salt was incorporated and minced.) In a small bowl, combine mashed garlic, parsley, tomatoes and oil, mixing well. Cover and refrigerate for eight hours or overnight. When ready to barbecue, cut two lengthwise slits in the salmon fillet with a sharp knife, dividing the surface of the fish into thirds. (Cut to the skin but not through it.) Spread half the garlic mixture over the fillet and into the slits. Place the salmon, skin side down, on a greased grill rack. Cover the grill and cook over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes.

Nearby News • For News Around Our Neighborhood

Spread the remaining garlic mixture on the fish. Continue cooking, with the lid down, over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily. Remove from the grill by inserting spatulas between the skin and the flesh, lifting the fillet, and leaving the skin on the grill. Serve the skinless, boneless fillet on a bed of fresh greens. Yields 4 servings. Beer and Balsamic Salad Dressing 1/4 cup medium full-bodied beer, like Amber Ale, room temperature 2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon honey 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon fresh chopped basil, or dried 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper 1/8 teaspoon salt

Place all ingredients in a mini blender, jar or salad cruet with a tight-fitting lid. Shake until well blended. Delicious when served over salad with chilled poached, grilled or baked salmon. July 15, 2015

Keep an open mind when grilling By Josh Dae, BBQ Island Scottsdale Grilling: It’s an activity you don’t have to be good or even great at to enjoy. Just like other cooking methods, everyone can use a few tips to improve their dishes. Here are a few ideas that will work whether you use gas, charcoal or wood. Keep an open mind, don’t be afraid to try new rubs, seasonings, marinades or cooking methods (i.e., reverse sear, smoking, sous vide). Be prepared and have a plan. This will help you stay calm, relaxed and organized while you cook. You want to season the meat or items to be grilled evenly on both sides and place in back in the refrigerator so the seasoning adheres better. Using a clean grill surface is always recommended to prevent from buildup, flare-ups and sticking. To clean it, use either brass or stainless bristle grill brush.

Allow the grill or cooker to preheat and get to the desired cooking temperature. I suggest having an accurate meat probe or thermometer to help with grilling accuracy and consistency. Once your items are removed from the grill allow at least a few minutes for the grilled items to rest for maximum tenderness and flavor. Allow your grill to stay lit and at temp to allow any excess grease or drippings to burn off, then brush your grates so the grill is ready and prepared for your next cook. For additional tips, product recommendations and suggestions call BBQ Island Scottsdale at (480) 503-1110 or visit the showroom at 15815 N. Frank Lloyd Wright, Scottsdale. Log onto www.bbqislandinc.com for more information.
