SUSD Celebrates its Newest National Board Certified Teachers National Board Certification is one of the highest achievements in the teaching profession. Recently, 15 Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) teachers earned this credential by completing the rigorous National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) process and two teachers renewed their credentials. SUSD now has 89 board-certified teachers. The newly certified teachers are Jackie Switalski Oates, Kiva; Darci Aronson, Redfield; Judy Droz, Cherokee; Jessica Valencia, Hohokam; Robin Wynne, Laguna; Amy Johnson, Saguaro; Casey Boerner, Chaparral; Joe Olney, Chaparral; Ted Anderson, Chaparral; Tom Roxborough, Coronado; Linda Graham, Laguna; Emily Cochran, Hopi; Diana Bode, Hopi; Debbie Hawkins, Laguna; and Jill Schadt, Cherokee. Nancy Rose, Arcadia, and Malcolm Leinwohl, Chaparral, renewed their credentials. They will be recognized at the Tuesday, Feb. 10, Governing Board meeting.

“We are very proud of our teachers who have completed this rigorous process” said Dr. Andi Fourlis, executive director of instructional service. “This year, SUSD is ranked first in the state for the number of qualifying candidates, and we are currently ranked second in the state for the number of NCBT.” The Scottsdale Unified School District Foundation annually grants money to SUSD teachers who have submitted plans for pursuing National Board Certification. Through an application process, funds are allocated for coaching and workshops from the AZ K-12 Center through the Bill and Sue Jenkins National Board Certification Educator Scholarship Program, as well as federal funding provided to the state department of education. For more information about NBCT, visit the National Board Certification folder on the professional development website and the NBPTS website at www.nbpts.org.

THE MARKET UPDATE The Real Estate Market is Changing

By Jason Mitchell, Real Estate Professional The Mitchell Group Realty Executives uring the past three years, homeowners have found themselves surrounded by a booming market. Phoenix led the nation nine of 12 consecutive quarters in appreciation. Coming back from the abyss of our housing crisis, opportunities presented themselves for new homeowners, move up buyers and investors alike. Today, many homeowners are sitting on a decent amount of equity—can you believe it? With the economy continuing to push ahead and the ability to once sell a home again and not be upside down, inventories during the past six months have been climbing. In fact, it is the highest climb of properties since 2008. Are we in a bubble? No, we are not in a bubble. However, we are finding ourselves in a normalized market. Sellers must now have the mindset that properties are taking longer to sell. It’s important that you price your home competitively and do all that you can to make your home stand out from the rest. It is no longer a seller’s market. Be realistic, have a little patience and most importantly, have a great agent.

Lauren Strohacker of Scottsdale was among the 13 applicants who received Artist Research and Development Grants for fiscal year 2015 through the Arizona Commission on the Arts. This competitive grant program bestows funding to Arizona artists practicing in a variety of artistic disciplines. The grants are intended to support research and development leading to the creation of new works of art. This year, 13 of 95 applicants received up to $5,000 in funding. Collaborating with Kendra Sollars, Strohacker will expand the scope of an ongoing Animal Land project, wherein larger-than-life video pro-

jections of wild animals are directed onto and within urban spaces. The grant will enable Strohacker to incorporate more sophisticated projection techniques and interactive technologies. Strohacker’s work has been published in the National Endowment for the Arts eBook, “Exploring Our Town” (2014), Sierra Magazine (2014), Java Magazine (2013) and Phoenix Magazine (2013). In 2014, Strohacker was named one of the top 100 creatives in the city by the Phoenix New Times. Animal Land was awarded the Contemporary Forum Emerging Artist Grant (2014) by the Phoenix Art Museum.

The professional Arizona United Soccer Club will play in Scottsdale Stadium beginning in April, according to the club. “This is the next step in professional soccer’s evolution in Arizona,” said Arizona United Soccer Club owner Kyle Eng. “Our mission is to serve the entire Arizona soccer community, and this move will bring the beautiful game to a wider audience. With Scottsdale Stadium’s proximity to restaurants and nightlife in downtown Scottsdale, our supporters will enjoy a game day experience that is second to none.” The spring home of the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, Scottsdale Stadium has won praise for its intimate sightlines, fan-friendly facilities and central location. The City of Scottsdale partnered with the soccer club. “The people of Scottsdale love sports, and soccer is definitely among the most popular,” said Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane. “That’s why we are so excited to welcome the Arizona United Soccer Club to Scottsdale Stadium and downtown Scottsdale. It’s a great venue in a great location, and it will provide a great home field advantage for Arizona’s only professional soccer team. We can’t wait to kick off the season.”

Arizona United Soccer Club played its 2014 USL PRO home schedule at Peoria Sports Complex after Eng bought the club a little more than a month before the season opener. Arizona United Soccer Club averaged about 3,200 fans in 16 home matches, posting a 7-7-2 record. “We are grateful to the City of Peoria and the Peoria Sports Complex for their support and hard work in our first season,” said Eng, founder and owner of Peoria-based Arrowhead Advertising. “With their help, we provided a first-class venue for our players, fans and partners.” In Scottsdale Stadium, the soccer pitch will run north and south, with the north goal in front of the left field wall and the south goal along the first base line. “We’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership,” said Scottsdale Stadium Supervisor Jeff Cesaretti. “Professional soccer will expose the stadium to a new audience and Scottsdale Stadium will provide a unique experience for soccer fans.” For full season tickets prices call the Arizona United Soccer Club front office at (623) 594-9606 or email info@ arizonaunited.com. Season ticket deposits are $50, and season tickets start as low as $165. January 15, 2015

The Useful Model T looking back

Gridiron

The Ford Model T, introduced to the buying public in 1908, has been called the “most famous motor vehicle ever built.” The car that helped transform the landscape is celebrated as the first car marketed for the “multitude.” But as historian John Rae writes, Henry Ford grew up on a farm in Michigan and also imagined the Model T as a “car to help the farmer.” The Model T was rugged and could be modified for a variety of needs, including pulling plows. The accompanying photos show that early Scottsdale residents, often involved in agriculture, found the Model T to be a useful addition to the family.

Top: Besides carrying passengers, the Model T could be used on farms as portable engines. Belts were fitted to the Model T’s axle or wheel, as in this undated photo, and used to pump water, move conveyor belts or generate electricity. Left: This early automobile ferried passengers and mail from the Ingleside Inn to Scottsdale and Phoenix.

Clarice Kimsey sits on a crate in what appears to be a Model T missing its body. Kimsey’s husband, Mort, ran Scottsdale’s first gasoline station.

Rena and Gabe Brooks of Cactus Road pose with daughter Emmagene in a 1920s Model T. Gabe Brooks worked as a machinist and well-driller.

Somehow the men of the family have arranged for the unidentified women in this photo to wash what appears to be an early Model T in Scottsdale.

By Meghan McCoy Thanks to two sponsors, the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is able to once again distribute free tickets to veterans and students. This year, teachers can participate as well. “Two sponsors stepped up and specifically wanted to sponsor the program, so we can continue to do it,” said Assistant Director Ally HaynesHamblen about Tiffany & Bosco P.A. and Great American Title Agency Inc. The SCPA has been offering free tickets to veterans and students for two seasons. However, Haynes-Hamblen said theater staff was looking for a way to expand the program and so it included teachers. Active duty and retired veterans need to show their military ID or proof of service to receive tickets. Students and teachers just need to display

a current school ID. Tickets can be requested by phone or at the box office. Some of the programs in which they want to develop bigger audiences for are dance, classical and world music programs. Haynes-Hamblen said the hope is that by offering free tickets, they will take a chance to appreciate new artists. Nearly 3,000 tickets were used during the 2013-2014 season for the free ticket program, which are valued at nearly $100,000 in total. “We have been really pleased with the reaction from the community,” Haynes-Hamblen said. “The vets in particular are really robust in their thank you notes.” For more information, call (480) 4998587 or visit www.ScottsdalePerform ingArts.org/visit/tickets-discounts.

Eight Tips to Save on Valentine’s Day pasta vixen

mom cents

You want to express your love, but you don’t want to hurt your wallet by doing so. Never fear! You can be frugally minded and still have an enjoyable Valentine’s Day. Check out the tips below for ways to save. photo page

events calendar

Cards If your kids are handing out cards at school, look at buying packs of smaller cards rather than individual cards that will cost more. You may also want to check the dollar stores for discount cards. There are also many free printable Valentine’s Day cards that you can make yourself. If you are mailing cards, send postcards, which have less postage than cards with envelopes. You can also send free eCards to long-distance loved ones (try www.BlueMountain.com for one example).

Dinner The easiest way to save is to dine at home or have a picnic, but if you feel like going out there are a few things you can do to save. Look for deals on local restaurants on www. groupon.com, www.LivingSocial. com or www.restaurants.com. Move the date. Celebrating after the 14th can save you a headache from the crowd and any higher rates that may be charged. If you want to celebrate on that day, try going for lunch rather than dinner. Skip the wine. Alcohol is expensive and can increase your chances of spending more. If you want to celebrate with a bottle, pick one up at the store and enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. You’ll easily save at least 50 percent on the bottle. Happy Saving!

Flowers Roses tend to go up in price (up to double) around Valentine’s Day. Seasonal flowers will be much less expensive. You can also mix up the colors, sizes and types of flowers to create a unique bouquet that costs less. Check larger retailers like Costco, Sam’s Club and Walmart for flowers. They buy flowers in bulk, and pass the savings onto the costumer. Potted plants are also a less expensive option that will last longer than a week or two. You save money and your loved one continues to enjoy your present.

Hold an orange in one hand and stick the tip of your knife into the top of the fruit next to the stem. Carefully bring the blade of the knife around to start a spiral cut of the peel, which you will continue the entire circumference of the orange. You want the entire peel to stay intact. Once it is removed, gently spread it out, rind up, on the cutting board. Using your knife, gently remove as much of the rind as possible without cutting the peel. You want the peel to be bendable. Choose one end of the peel and cut the end off at a right angle to the rest of the peel. Starting with the cut end, tightly curl the orange peel, trying to keep it as even as possible as the side that wants to be the bottom will end up being the top. When the peel reaches the halfway point, the remaining peel will form the outer petals. Use the curl at the end of the peel to form the base of your flower. Set on a plate and either let stand indoors or out in the sun for at least 24 hours so it will dry in its new shape.

Ingredients: Pint Mason jar Orange peel, rind and one sliced orange, all left over from the orange peel flower project 2 tsp whole cloves 3-4 cinnamon sticks

2 tbsp allspice 2 star anise pods Candle warmer

Starting with the orange slices and working your way down to the smallest spices, place everything in the Mason jar and cover with two cups of water. Place on the candle warmer and enjoy!

Orange Peel Flower Wreath The neat thing about orange peel flowers and orange leaves is that they keep their color and shape once they’ve dried. But if you’re too impatient (like me!) to wait for them to dry, you can use a length of floral wire inserted horizontally through the base of the flower to hold it in place and add it to the wreath.

Arizona State University student Andrew Boyle, right, practiced long hours to prepare for the prestigious piano competition.

his teacher, as well as doing a lot of soul searching and mental preparation. The competition was comprised of three rounds, with 28 competitors in the first round. Each participant played for 20 to 25 minutes. The second round included a 40-minute recital with the eight semifinalists. The final round had three finalists. “The music is a classical music competition,” Boyle said, adding that he did not write the music that he performed. He began playing the piano 14 years ago after taking interest in the instrument. “I enjoy being able to communicate with people and with audience members,” he said. “The music that has been written with the piano is so rich. I like to always be able to bring that to people because most people don’t get a lot of exposure to it. I feel there is something valuable to continue to play these wonderful pieces that are written for the piano.” After Boyle graduates from ASU, he hopes to pursue his education as a pianist with a master’s degree and continue to compete. “Any other younger pianist in the area, I encourage them to continue to follow their own love for the piano and not hold anything back and really go for it,” Boyle said.

By Meghan McCoy Two years ago, Arizona State University junior Andrew Boyle had the exciting opportunity to volunteer at the Bösendorfer and Yamaha USASU International Piano Competition, but this year, his experience was a little different. With the encouragement from a few professors and plenty of hard work, Boyle had the honor of competing this year. Although Boyle did not win the competition, he said the overall experience was very beneficial. “Regardless of the outcome, I have grown very much in preparing for the competition and really having to push myself to reach a level of perfection,” Boyle said. “I have also grown a lot from listening to other competitors.” This year, 205 pianists, representing 42 countries, applied for the international piano competition, three of which were ASU students. The winner of the competition, Sung Chang, of the Republic of Korea, earned top honors and the $15,000 David Katzin Award and a featured solo with the Phoenix Symphony. The competition included an opening gala recital on Sunday, Jan. 4 and competition Monday, Jan. 5, through Friday, Jan. 9. The closing winner’s recital was held on Saturday, Jan. 10. Boyle played on Tuesday, Jan. 6, for the first time in the competition. He said he prepared by practicing for many hours, taking extra lessons with

It’s healthful, light and refreshing— just the type of recipe we’re all looking for this time of year. Ceviche, a citrus-based marinated seafood appetizer or light meal, is perfectly prepared with this version, the right blend of smooth flavors with a big kick of cayenne and roasted jalapenos. I got this recipe from Michael Garcia, executive chef of Fleming’s Steakhouse & Wine Bar in Chandler. He often makes this Garcia family favorite for his kitchen staff and I was lucky enough to be there the day he was stirring up a fresh bowl full. “My grandmother, Nana Lena, originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, made this as a neutral recipe, meaning it’s designed to add as much or as little heat as you want, and it’s still wonderful,” Garcia said. He added that his Nana Lena knew seafood, and she taught him to blend it into perfection with this dish!

As a young boy, Garcia would ride his bicycle almost every day to his Nana’s house and watch her prepare traditional Mexican dishes. “Nana would say, ‘Michael, are you hungry?’ Are you kidding? I was always hungry!” Garcia recalled. “I’d stand there in the kitchen and watch her make my favorite things like homemade corn and flour tortillas and ceviche!” Thankfully, this recipe has no chance of being forgotten. Garcia has begun a new tradition with his four sons. They make Nana Lena’s ceviche every Sunday—especially during football season. “We prep it together and the first bowl is ready by the beginning of the second game,” he said. It’s so good, chef, mine won’t last through the first commercial of the first game! Gracias, Nana Lena!

A: Be careful when a spill on your outfit dries invisibly. You might think, “Oh, good, it didn’t stain.” But much of what we consume (and spill) has sugar in it, and the sugar turns brown when heated during drying or finishing. Bring it to Prestige Cleaners. In most cases, we can spot the area and still get the residue out before it becomes a problem.

saving lives,” said Schaeffer, who has a master’s degree. “Families need to know that there are affordable options that provide their loved ones with a great quality of life. “It’s not just that I get a fee from the facility and say, ‘See ya,’ I stay with the family and I’ve been to these places and follow up with them, so I know who is giving good care.” One case made a huge impact on her six years ago. A man called her because he was concerned about the treatment his mom was getting at a care center. The woman underwent routine surgery after falling and breaking her hip. But the man told Schaeffer that his mom was bed-bound and doing poorly. Schaeffer was concerned about her health.

“I told the son that we had to move quickly with his mom, and so we removed her from the care facility and took her to the emergency room,” Schaeffer said. “While we were at the ER, the doctor told me that if we hadn’t taken her, she might have lived only two more days.” “We found her a wonderful care home and she was initially on hospice, and then she went off hospice and six months later she went back to her mobile home. When I went to visit her, she told me ‘you’re my guardian angel.’ That made all of the hours worth it.” For information about Above and Beyond, call (602) 329-5743 or visit www.aboveandbeyondsenior placement.com.

in our productions of Cave Creek Art & Craft Festivals in the 1990s that he saw me becoming one of the premier Arizona artists’ events facilitators,” she recalled. “That is when I decided to concentrate my time and efforts in the arena of artists’ facilitator rather than becoming an artist myself.” Magic Bird Festivals will host five events in Carefree this year, with two notable ones slated in the next two months: the fourth annual Carefree Indian Market & Cultural Festival and the fourth annual Carefree Festival of Fine Chocolate & Fine Art. The Carefree Indian Market & Cultural Festival is scheduled for 10 a.m.5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 23, through Sunday, Jan. 25, at the Carefree Desert Gardens, 101 Easy St., Carefree. More than 100 highly acclaimed artists will display traditional and contemporary creations celebrating Native American artisanship. This festival is expected to draw more than 10,000 visitors. “What better way to celebrate the great state of Arizona and the unique community and venue of Carefree then to honor the first citizens and indigenous peoples of the Americas whose tribal presence is so prominent here,” Toombs-Rechlin said. “It is an educational and entertainment experience unsurpassed by any museum because it is alive and it is now in the present day.” The fourth annual Carefree Festival of Fine Chocolate & Fine Art is scheduled during Valentine’s Day weekend. This four-day festival runs from Thursday, Feb. 12, through Sunday, Feb. 15, in the Carefree Desert Gardens. More than 100 exhibitors of fine art, chocolate and handmade confections will display their wares beginning on Thursday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and continuing Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “All of our festivals offer something for everyone,” she said. “They include quality, well-produced entertainment and foods, and they are just fun.” Magic Bird Festivals also hosts the Carefree Fine Art of the Southwest Festival, the Carefree Christmas Festival Gift Market and the Carefree Days Festival. Admission is free. For more information about Magic Bird Festivals, visit www.magicbirdfestivals. com or call (480) 488-2014.
