Presidential Scholar Looks Forward to D.C. Ceremony comm. spotlight

law talk


Raj Vatsa of Scottsdale remembers the exact day he was named one of this year’s U.S. Presidential Scholars. “I found out early in May—Monday, May 7,” said Vatsa, a recent graduate of Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix. “I was extremely excited. It was the last thing I expected.” Vatsa, along with more than 120 fellow recipients, will head to Washington, D.C., to participate in the scholar ceremonies later this month. The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, which was established in 1964, attracted approximately 3.2 million candidates this year. These candidates were evaluated by their SAT or ACT test scores, academic achievement, personal characteristics, and leadership and service activities. The Commission on Presidential classifieds

Scholars chose 565 semifinalists from the list of candidates. Because Vatsa was named one of the semifinalists, he had to submit an application. Vatsa said the application included five or six mini essays, which were a paragraph or two in length, and one extensive essay that was two pages single spaced. In addition to the essays, he said he also had to submit recommendation letters from teachers and the counseling office, as well as extracurricular activities he was involved with. “It was more intensive than any college application I filled out this year,” Vatsa said. The recent graduate earned straight A’s throughout high school. He said he juggled advanced placement courses his junior and senior year, which

Win Cash with Creepy Scorpion Stories By Meghan McCoy In an effort to raise awareness of scorpion problems in the Valley, one business is hosting a contest with a $1,000 cash prize for the Creepiest Scorpion Encounter. Jim LaBrie, co-owner of Scottsdale’s Bug and Weed Mart, said he decided to hold the contest because scorpions are a problem for a good percentage of Valley folks. Participants are asked to submit a 250 word or less description of their scorpion encounter with an original photo or video. The footage can showcase an up-close look of the actual

scorpion, a theatrical reenactment or a retelling of the story. Those who submit an entry are encouraged to make it creative and compelling. Scorpions, he said, begin making appearances once the weather warms up, which typically is from February until November. With an early spring this year, LaBrie said there was scorpion activity in January. “Generally the season is about nine to 10 months,” he said. “Thirty-five years ago, it was the first of March to about the end of October.” LaBrie said scorpions are not

difficult to control if individuals take the right measures to tackle the problem. The easiest way to decrease the activity of scorpions is to make sure entry ways are reduced of clutter. He said people should get rid of such clutter as leaves, twigs and stacks of wood, as well as keeping shrubs trimmed. Preventative measures can be taken by using granulators and sprays for an invisible barrier around the building, which is odorless and does not bother pets, people or plants. Areas where bugs like to hide, such as door frames, sidewalks and the edge of patios, should be sprayed. “We have stores that sell the actual chemicals,” LaBrie said. “Each of the managers are trained to show each person how to use them.” LaBrie said when individuals are shown how to use the chemical, the results are significantly better and far less expensive to treat the problem. He said the rule of thumb is if individuals treat with granules four times a year and spray eight times a year they will virtually be bug free. The contest is open to all Maricopa County residents, 18 years old or older, except employees of landscaping or pest control companies. All submissions should be sent to contest@bugweedmart. com with a typed description in the body of the email, the photo either attached or embedded in the email and a video link. The deadline is 12 a.m. Wednesday, June 25. The submissions will be uploaded to Facebook and Twitter and a confirmation email will be sent to the participant with a link to the social media website. Finalists will be chosen based on the number of Facebook “likes” and retweets on Twitter. The winner will be announced the week of June 30.

Scottsdale Having Fun Before World War II, when Scottsdale was a small agricultural hamlet and modern air conditioning had yet not reached Valley homes, life in this sun and canal-filled paradise required adaptation. Still, as these pictures attest, locals and visitors alike managed to have loads of fun.

One especially popular pastime in the early 20th century for Scottsdale residents was cooling off in the canals, which were the sites of “swimming parties,” complete with bonfires to roast hot dogs and marshmallows, said Michelle Bickert and Amy Long in “Salt River Stories” (

Vada Thomas, Merle Brown and Jamda Graves strike a pose before going for a swim in the early 1930s.

In this photo taken before 1930, six boys gather in Scottsdale Road for a game of marbles. The best place to shoot marbles was the middle of a dusty road where a nice ring could be drawn. The gamers include Theodore Smith, Camil Smith, Harland Thornton and Jim Kinney. The McComb Brothers general store is in the background on the right. Mary McBurney shows off a pony in front of a bank in this photo taken before 1950.

are tangential to it,” said Leverton. The Topgolf golf concept involves players hitting balls, with imbedded microchips from 102 climatecontrolled hitting stations, to an orchestrated outfield of targets. There are interactive displays and automatic golf ball feeds to make the experience even more accessible. Topgolf is anticipating that its unique blend of golf, entertainment, culinary and beverage options will delight some half a million visitors in its first full

year. The commercial impact for not only the Scottsdale area, but the Salt River Maricopa Indian Community is extensive as well, with estimates of over $260 million in economic impact during a 10-year window according to the CEO. This business is here to stay and Leverton knows it: “At Topgolf, whether you have swung a million times or none, you can have fun, eat great foods, enjoy our drink menu, and be with friends.”

OdySea in the Desert, the 35-acre, multimillion dollar entertainment complex under development on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation, is slated to break ground on the next phase of the project, OdySea Aquarium, this summer. With a planned opening in fall 2015, OdySea will be the largest aquarium in the Southwest and promises a state-of the-art facility in the unlikely setting of the Sonoran desert. The 16-acre attraction, designed to accommodate up to 15,000 visitors daily, will join Butterfly Wonderland and OdySea Mirror Maze as the third destination attraction of the entertainment district. OdySea Aquarium will have two levels spanning over 200,000 square feet. Planners say visitors will move between levels via acrylic tunnels while viewing some of the most fascinating animals of rivers and oceans in the world. Among the features planned is the SeaTREK experience, which allows guests to descend deep into the “ocean” where they will be surrounded by sea

The OdySea Aquarium will also include a Lighthouse Café serving a full menu and light snacks and an OdySea Treasures Gift Shop. Additionally, the facility will accommodate private events up to several hundred guests. “The OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale will offer the very latest in technology and will have a futuristic entertainment component that goes far beyond delivering a standard aquarium experience,” Knishinsky said. “We are hopeful that visitors from across the country will want to add this to their ‘must do’ Arizona itinerary.” Knishinsky, Martin Pollack and Rubin Stahl are the development and management team behind the Butterfly Wonderland and Mirror Maze attractions that opened in

the complex in 2013. The trio were also responsible for the Newport Aquarium in Kentucky, which was named a top aquarium in a readers poll published by USA Today. Other future attractions planned for OdySea in the Desert include an IMAX Theater, an “Arizona Experience,” a Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum, retail shops and a “Taste of the World” culinary showcase of international restaurants. The upcoming OdySea Aquarium will be a for-profit facility employing more than 250 individuals with nonprofit component administering all the educational programs and services. It will be located at Via De Ventura and the Loop 101 in Scottsdale. For more information call on OdySea Aquarium, call (480) 9512100.

creatures on all sides. Even the restrooms will have floorto-ceiling windows for aquatic life views. Other features will include a state-of-the-art 3D theater, staffed presentations, and an innovative visitor experience described as “SeaWorld meets Disneyland.” Details are being kept under wraps until opening, but “will be an absolute show-stopper,” said Amram Knishinsky, PhD and principal founder. OdySea Aquarium is expected to cover all areas of marine life—from the bayous and coral reefs to deep abysses of fresh and salt water. A sampling of the planned exhibits includes Rivers of the World, American Rivers, Amazon Rivers, Shores, Penguins, the Great Barrier Reef, and “the Bizarre and the Beautiful,” including jellyfish, octopus, large king crabs and seahorses. Educational media boards, placed throughout the facility, will provide hands-on experiences, illuminated world maps and sounds from different regions all over the globe.

Your Kids Rock, So Let Them Hit the Stage By Kimberly Hosey Is your kid rocking out in the kitchen? Stage diving from the couch? Maybe it’s time they hit the stage for real. Two Valley day camps offer the opportunity to do just that, and provide kids with solid musical training at the same time. The Scottsdale School of Rock at 13610 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale and Ahwatukee School of Rock at 4645 E. Chandler Blvd., Phoenix, are part of a nationwide group of campuses known for taking kids from all skill levels and musical backgrounds and making them into bona fide stage performers. Advanced students even perform at professional venues like the Crescent Ballroom, playing everything from The Beatles, The Who and Pink Floyd to Jimi Hendrix and Boston. The prevailing philosophy at the School of Rock is that the best way to learn music is to play music—so they get kids rocking out as soon as possible.

“It’s amazing to watch these young musicians come in and know nothing on day one, and they are playing a rock show by the end of the week,” said Alexis Hernandez, guitar instructor and School of Rock camp director. In addition to robust music lessons, the school instills confidence in kids as they learn to find their own styles and be comfortable in their own skin. Through instruction, practice, activities such as making posters and performance, kids learn lessons in music and in life. The most popular camp is the school’s Rock 101 Camp. The introductory camp gives students a taste of performance without the stage fright—a perfect opportunity to get comfortable on stage and with their instruments in a low-pressure environment. Staff members guide new musicians through everything from learning notes and rock tunes to performing their signature stage

moves. The camp is offered to students who want to play guitar, bass, keys, drums and vocals. Building on the social environment of music making, Rock 101 also brings its “senior” students in on the The School of Rock, with campuses in Scottsdale and offers lessons in vocals and instruments instruction, allowing Ahwatukee, for kids as young as 8. In summer camps, children learn them to share the everything from the basics of rock ‘n’ roll to advanced skills stage with newcomers like songwriting. and lead by example, as musicians but who need guidance and tools seasoned and fresh build confidence to start writing music.

July 4th Fireworks Cause for Concern, Precautions

By Tracy House They sparkle, pop, crack and whistle. They create the collective oohs and ahs from the crowd as they light up the sky. Fireworks are a time-honored tradition for the Fourth of July, and even the biggest kid enjoys setting them off or writing his name in the air with a sparkler. But, they can also be dangerous if not handled properly. Jim Ford, Scottsdale Fire Department fire marshal since 1989, said that because of recent legislation, fireworks laws have changed so that Maricopa County cannot restrict use within its jurisdiction. One-third of Scottsdale is preserve land and another one-third has environmental overlay for landscaping and natural areas, so cause for concern for use of fireworks is high

in Scottsdale. Ford explained that the use of fireworks around these areas is a high risk for fires. “We always close our preserve on the Fourth of July because we don’t want anybody going in there and setting something off.” Fireworks are allowed in Scottsdale on private property, Ford said, with the property owner’s approval. Use of fireworks is prohibited on City property which would include parks, streets and schools. Use of fireworks is only allowed in Maricopa County from Tuesday, June 24, through Sunday, July 6. Sales of fireworks are permitted through July 6. Besides closing the preserves for Fourth of July, Ford said there are

other precautions that consumers should take when using fireworks. There is also a right way and wrong way to use fireworks. “They’re just not harmless little things.” For example, writing in the sky with a sparkler could cause serious injuries. Water boils at 212 degrees. Glass melts at 900 degrees. precaution and always supervise children when Metal sparklers burn at Exercise using any type of firework this Fourth of July holiday.

Tips on Saving on Summer Cooling pasta vixen

mom cents

Summer can be a drain on your energy bills, especially here in Arizona, however there are some things that you can do to offset the seasonal impact on your pocketbook. These DIY projects will help you save on summer cooling costs to keep your home’s temperature down during the hot season. • Add Some Green Around Your Home. Provide natural shade to your home by planting trees and bushes. You especially want shade that falls directly on windows and doors to block the harsh summer sun. This will help to diffuse the heat and keep your home a bit cooler. • Create Artificial Shade. Consider installing awnings above windows that face the sun. Awnings that can be rolled up or down offer the choice of letting in the sun versus keeping the windows in the shade. You can also install rigid awnings photo page

that hang above your windows on a bracket, making it easy to take them down when not needed. • Thermostat Control. Run your thermostat a little warmer through the summer. According to, you can save from 5 percent to 10 percent on cooling costs for each degree higher than 78 degrees that you keep your thermostat. • Summer Window Treatments. Covering the windows with dark, opaque curtains keeps the light out as well as the heat. Shades come in a variety of designs, so you can still have an attractive window treatment while saving on your energy costs.

• Install Ceiling Fans. Ceiling fans help air circulate through the house. In the summer, ceiling fans should draw the air up. This brings the cool air up from the floor to mix with the room air, keeping the entire room comfortable. • Change Light Bulbs. The standard incandescent light bulb generates a lot of heat. Newer compact fluorescent light bulbs, or CFLs, are cooler and don’t use as much energy. Although more expensive than incandescent, the CFLs will save you in the long run by reducing your energy and cooling needs. I’ve found some great deals on CFLs at Costco recently, too.

What’s Cooking? By Jan D’Atri

Watermelon Cake and Strawberry Pie It’s July and we’re looking for ways to stay cool, eat lighter and maybe give the slow cooked oven recipes a rest. The heck if I’m going to give up my sweets, though. So what better way to kick off July than with two scrumptious desserts that require very little effort? Watermelon cake is all the rage online these days. I have to admit that I was not a believer

that you could actually frost a real watermelon and decorate it like an actual cake. But you can, if you follow my instructions, and I think you’re going to love it! The second recipe for strawberry pie is an all-American favorite and this recipe really brings out the true flavor of fresh strawberries. I hope you enjoy both! Stay cool and I’ll see you next month.

NOW OPEN FOR LUNCH & DINNER Fabulous Restaurant & Bar


Watermelon Cake with Whipped Cream Frosting 1 watermelon Fruit for garnish: (1 pint blueberries, 1 pint strawberries, 6-7 Kiwi, 2 cups grapes, 1 large orange) 2 pints whipping cream (or more for large watermelon) 1 small (3oz) package Jell-O Instant Vanilla Pudding 2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Cut rind off entire watermelon. Make a slice through the bottom to make a base so it will remain steady on a plate. Cut watermelon the size and shape you want your cake. (A flat top cake is easier to garnish with fruit.) Pack paper towels around the entire watermelon to soak up watermelon

Cannot be combined with any other discounted offer.

juice. (The dryer the watermelon, the easier it will be to frost.)


15040 N. Northsight Blvd. Suite 104, Scottsdale


For the Stabilized Whipped Cream Frosting: For each cup of whipped cream used, add 1 tablespoon of instant vanilla pudding and 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar. For sweeter frosting, add more powdered sugar. Whip together until stiff peaks form. Frost cake with spatula or place frosting in piping bag with large star tip. (I use a 14- or 16-inch piping bag.) Garnish with fresh fruit and slice in wedges. Serve immediately.


Granite Countertops Flooring

Strawberry Pie

1 deep dish pie shell plus 2 teaspoons sugar 6 cups quart fresh strawberries 1 cup white sugar 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 3 tablespoons cornstarch 3/4 cup cold water 1 cup heavy whipping cream 1 heaping tablespoon powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of sugar over pie shell and bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. When done, arrange 4 cups of whole strawberries in pie shell, point up. With a small food processor, fork or potato masher, thoroughly puree

remaining 2 cups strawberries and combine with cup of sugar in a medium saucepan. Add lemon juice. Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together cornstarch and water. Gradually stir cornstarch mixture into boiling strawberry mixture. Reduce heat and simmer mixture until thickened, about 5-6 minutes, stirring often. Pour mixture over berries in pastry shell. Chill for several hours before serving. In a small bowl, whip cream and powdered sugar until firm peaks form. Serve each slice of pie with a dollop of whipped cream.

Phillip Phillips, “American Idol” season 11 winner, headlines Salt River Fields on Thursday, July 3.

Phillips ‘Itching’ to Hit the Road By Christina Fuoco-Karasinski Phillip Phillips is going “a little crazy.” He’s been home on and off for the past few weeks, after touring with John Mayer and Matchbox Twenty. He can’t wait to hit the stage again. “I’ve been itching to get on tour and everything,” a jovial Phillips said via telephone. “I haven’t been able to jam with my band.” Phillips, who won the 11th season of “American Idol,” is taking to the road to support his latest album “Behind the Light,” which features the single “Raging Fire.” “I really love it,” he explained about the song, which debuted at No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 after selling 74,000 digital copies. “It’s fun to play live. We wrote that song pretty quickly. We had the idea then we went and started something else. I said, ‘Let’s go back to that.’ We wrote it in four to five days, if that, probably less. We turned in a rough version of the song to the label and they said, ‘Well, this is awesome. We want to put this out next Tuesday. We had three to four days to finish it, master and mix it. It was crazy, so super fast. But it was good and I’m so proud of that song.” For the collection, Phillips was able to experiment a bit more, after having rushed through his first post“American Idol” release “The World from the Side of the Moon.” The album was nevertheless successful, having spawned the hits “Home” and “Gone, Gone, Gone.” “It’s similar, but it’s different,” Phillips said of “Behind the Light.” “It’s more mature. You can tell there’s a lot of growth there. It’s a little bit

deeper as well, lyrically. It takes you into a deeper side of things. Everyone goes through things in life, whether someone knows it or not. I think the lyrics really speak well on this album. “From the first song ‘Searchlight’ to ‘Midnight Sun,’ it’s about life in general. I’m still young—only 23— but being out on the road for a couple years straight, every time you get to go home, you see the age in all your family and friends. Then, you look at yourself in the mirror and say, ‘I guess I’ve gotten older as well.’ That’s what this album is about.” Phillips will perform tracks from the album when he headlines Salt River Fields on Thursday, July 3. A native of Leesburg, Georgia, Phillips feels very blessed that he’s been able to spend so much time on the road. He’s created some strong friendships throughout the learning process. “It’s hard to say who I learned the most from because John Mayer, he was so busy, but we got to hang out a little bit,” he said. “Rob Thomas was a great guy. They had a lot of great advice and they really respected how I played music. They were really nice to me and great with my whole crew. If I did ask them anything, they would say keep doing what you’re doing and keep making the right decisions.” Phillip Phillips and special guests Sara Robinson and the Midnight Special, The Senators and Matt Kahler perform at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 3, at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, 7555 N. Pima Rd., Scottsdale. Tickets are $20 to $40. For more information, call (800) 7453000 or visit

Put Your Kid’s Acting Skills to Work Act One Youth Theater in Scottsdale is looking for kids with talent for a musical production of “Disney’s Sleeping Beauty—Kids!” Youths from ages 8 to 19 are invited to audition on Wednesday, Sept. 3, for a production of Disney’s version of the classic fairytale. Act One officials say they are looking for kids who can sing, act or dance, but no experience is required. The musical will be performed at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale Oct. 17-19. Page 24

Laurie Mershon founded Scottsdale’s Act One after working for years in local youth theaters. She eventually founded Act One, a nonprofit youth theater, to increase the opportunities for children to experience the performing arts and music amid shrinking budgets for school music programs. “With the movie ‘Maleficent’ coming out, we feel this is a wonderful opportunity for kids to bring the movies to life on stage at our theater,”

she said in a press release. Disney’s “Kids” musicals are 30-minute stage productions of Disney classics especially designed for young performers. Act One’s production will include songs from the beloved Disney film such as “Once Upon a Dream” and “A Little Magic Now.” The music includes compositions

by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and George Bruns. Mershon said there are no participation fees or requirements to sell tickets for performers or their families, and costumes are provided free of charge. Tickets are $7 for adults, and $5 for kids, students and seniors. For more information, visit

The Anderson families—from left, Pastors Kelli and Jason, and Pastors Scot and Holly— welcome members of any faith to Living Word Bible Church.

Living Word: Come As You Are

Living Word Bible Church has been an active part of the Valley since 1985. The congregation has grown considerably since then and the dynamic church invites the public to “come as you are” and welcomes everyone equally with open arms. Pastor Scot Anderson works alongside his wife, Pastor Holly Anderson at the Scottsdale and Mesa churches in focusing on personal development. “I couldn’t do it without her,” said Scot Anderson. “We work as much as we can together since we have five kids...She helps me with all the marriage conferences and she’s there of course Saturday and Sunday running services. She also has Moms of Destiny group once a month and moms get together and learn how to pray their kids into success and she also does our single moms Christmas party.” The husband-wife team also travels globally teaching the issues of parenting, finances and relationships. “I think that religion over the last few thousand years has given the perception to people that unless you are perfect and living a perfect life and look a certain way and you walk through the doors of the church, you’ll be struck down,” said Anderson. “We say, ‘Come on in the way you are’ and we just teach you hope, excitement and how to live a better life and we’re not going to try and change you. We’re about loving people where they’re at and seeing them grow to have a better life.” biz box
