Volunteers pitch in as Peoria Film Fest goes big BY TOM SCANLON

Peoria Times Associate Editor

The Peoria Film Fest could happen without volunteers. Maybe. “It would be really, really difficult,” Jason Carney said, with a groan. Carney is the executive director of the Phoenix Film Festival, which expanded to Peoria last year. Carney is one of three paid staff. “The rest are volunteers,” he said. He relies on some 260 volunteers to work both festivals. Around 30 volunteers will be working the Peoria Film Fest, which cranks up the West Valley this week. While there are many small, independent, “artsy” movies on the schedule,

opening night is pure Hollywood: A sneak peek — and “director’s cut,” to boot — screening of “The Current War.” This big-budget flick is the story of the battle between Thomas Edison, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon). It doesn’t open until Oct. 25, for the rest of the country. “The Current War,” screening in Peoria at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, is directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who directed indie hit “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.” The Hollywood Reporter panned “The Current War” as “an uninvolving bore,” one of several unflattering early reviews. The Cumberbatch-Shannon battle plays at the Peoria Film Fest’s main base, Harkins

Arrowhead Fountains Theatre 17 16046 N Arrowhead Fountains Center Drive. An opening night reception prior to the screening starts at 6 p.m. walking distance to the theater at Modern Round, 8320 W Mariners Way. The starry opening night film is a bit misleading, as the Peoria Film Fest focuses on small, daring unknowns. And, with an intriguing mix of 20 big- to small-budget films, a showcase of student filmmakers and family programming, the second Peoria Film Festival is a major expansion over the first. “This year we went wider with our scope of programming,” said Carney. “It’s a great opportunity to bring good, indepenSEE FILM

On Oct. 5, the Peoria Police Department announced Officer Bradford “Boogie” Knights was hanging up his service revolver. “He retired after 20-plus years of faithful service,” said Twitter and Facebook posts from the department. He will be missed, judging from a few Facebook comments: “Officer Knights is one of the most professorial officers that I had the privilege of meeting,” wrote Nancy Schilling Thurnes. Beth Matheny Kern seconded that: “Thanks for all your wonderful work and connection to our schools and our neighborhoods!” SEE RETIREE PAGE 8

Court date for teacher accused of molesting students BY PEORIA TIMES STAFF A Peoria teacher is facing multiple new counts of child molestation, attempted child molestation and sexual abuse. Ricky Ordway will be in court on Monday, Oct. 14, for a pre-trial conference appearance at the Maricopa County Superior Court. Ordway, 43, faces more than 20 sexually-related charges reportedly committed against minors. He was a teacher at Sun Valley Elementary School in Peoria. Ordway was arrested in May by Peoria police and originally charged with five counts of child molestation and one count of sexual abuse of minors. According to the police report, on May 7, the Sun Valley Elementary School principal notified the Peoria police department about students’ accusations. During the investigation it was dis-

covered the alleged abuse by Ordway may have gone on for years. The report also indicates an 11-yearold female victim told officers she “was sitting at Ordway’s desk when he pulled up her dress and underwear and touched her” while in class which reportedly happened sometime in February. “After rubbing the victim’s leg, he touched her (inappropriately),” the report continued. The victim said it felt “weird” and she was uncomfortable and didn’t like it when (Ordway) touched her. Another victim told police, since September, Ordway “called her up to his desk, unbuttoned her pants and touched her several times.” Ordway worked for the district since August 2016. The morning of Ordway’s arrest, Sun Valley officials sent parents an email acknowledging his arrest and the accusations.

BY PEORIA TIMES STAFF With October being Fire Prevention Month, First Alert is teaming up with more than 1,700 Lowe’s stores across the country in a joint effort to spread awareness about the importance of whole home protection. Safety education events with local fire departments will be held from 10 a.m. to noon this week at numerous Lowe’s locations in the Phoenix area. The focus of the event will be to educate attendees about how to protect their families and homes from the threats of fire and carbon monoxide (CO). Each year, nearly 3,000 Americans die from home fires, while CO poisoning claims approximately 450 lives, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The NFPA also reports that almost three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms (40%) or no working smoke alarms (17%). “In order to help decrease home fire and CO poisoning incidents, people must be equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge,” said Tarsila Wey, director of marketing for First Alert, the most trusted name in home safety.* “Protecting homes and families is our number one priority, and by partnering with Lowe’s and local fire departments, we hope to help ensure the long-term safety of communities nationwide.” Store associates and fire officials will host fun, family-focused activities to

teach families about equipping their homes with smoke and CO alarms, as well as planning and practicing a fire escape plan. Children will have the opportunity to build a wooden fire truck in a one-time kids’ workshop and will receive firefighter hats, coloring books and educational materials, while supplies last. In addition, smoke and CO alarms will be on display, including First Alert’s 10-year sealed battery alarms

that provide reliable protection for a decade without the hassle of battery replacements. This event will take place on October 12 at the following Lowe’s West Valley locations from 10:00 a.m. to noon: Oct. 12: Lowe’s Of N. Peoria, 25311 N Lake Pleasant Parkway, Peoria. Oct. 15: Lowe’s Of Glendale, 5809 West Northern Avenue, Glendale. Oct. 26: Lowe’s Of Peoria, 8497 West Thunderbird Road, Peoria.

Three West Valley nonprofits receive Cox Charities grants BY NATALIE URQUIZA

Peoria Times Contributing Writer

Cox Communications Cox Charities announced on Sept. 30 the distribution of $570,000 in grant funding to 108 Arizona agencies. In the West Valley, three organizations received grants: Doreen Katz Memorial Cancer Foundation of Peoria; Avondale’s Homeless Youth Connection; and WHAM Art Association of Surprise. The Doreen Katz Memorial Cancer Foundation is a charitable organization which is dedicated to helping children whose parents are battling cancer. Adam Katz is the executive director and founder; starting the Colorado-based foundation in 2011 and expanded to Arizona in 2017. It helps with problems the family might be facing, including funding the child’s schooling, when needed. “In Colorado, they use things like classes, field trips, art, science and computers,” Katz said. “Here in Arizona, we helped a family pay for the child’s high school swim team’s fee.” Not only does the foundation help with finances, but they also help with the emotional aspect of a patient going through cancer with therapy. “So that way they have a voice outside the home,” Katz said. “Every time we take in a family, they get their own assigned therapist, it is there when needed. Going through anything to expand to our therapy offerings.” The nonprofit earned $2,000 from the Cox Charities fund for the third consecutive year. Katz said it was amazing to have won the grant for the third time. With the grant money it received from Cox Charities, it has big plans of collaborating with more therapy ranches, such as Hunkapi in Scottsdale. “We are putting more people into the program,” said Katz. “It has an amazing effect on our kids.” Another Cox Charities recipient is Homeless Youth Connection, founded 10 years ago by Larry Cervarich in Avondale. Cervarich was talking to folks around the community about how some grade school and high school children do not have basic school supplies, such as backpacks and calculators. “It really didn’t sit well with him, he wanted to make a difference,” said Dana Bailey, the agency’s chief development and marketing officer. “He was involved with the Rotary and reached out to some Rotary clubs. They rallied and came together and they did some drives.”

Connection.)

The nonprofit serves ages 13 to 21 from over 100 high schools in Maricopa County. In the last 10 years, it has grown to serve about 726 students. “The students that we serve come through school districts,” Bailey said. “There is an act under federal law called the McKinney-Vento Act. What that says is when a young person becomes homeless, the school district of origin has to be responsible for getting that child to school.” Each Maricopa County district school has a liaison who identifies which students are experiencing homelessness and then contacts HYC. “We work with students who want to stay in school and want to graduate,” Bailey said. This is the nonprofit’s third year receiving the Cox Charity grant to help support HYC’s Empowering Youth for The Future program, which was awarded $5,000. The program provides the youth with basic necessities and case management. Also, it helps with supplying school supplies, basic hygiene needs, pay for

school fees and finding the student find a home and pay for any school fees that might come about in the school year. The nonprofit also helps the student who has experienced trauma in their lives by consulting services. “The HYC eliminates the barriers for students to be able to graduate and works with them to come up with lasting solutions to be able to succeed,” Bailey said. Cox Charities also gave $3,000 to the

WHAM Art Association’s Teen Art Club. Connie Whitlock created the nonprofit because she loved taking her pottery class at Sun City Grand pottery club. She realized some communities do not have access to art equipment. “Art isn’t just about selling,” Whitlock said. “It is about connecting with others and that is what gets me out of bed, is thinking who can experience the arts and how it makes them feel.”

dent films to that part of the Valley. “I live in El Mirage, so for me trying to see good indie films means hiking over to Scottsdale or downtown Phoenix.” The appropriately named Carney put together last year’s film carnival on the fly, as the city of Peoria was ready, willing and able to launch. “They came to us to see if we were interested in doing something,” Carney said with a chuckle. “A month later we were up and running and ready to go.” Small as it was, last year’s festival served as an appetizer for the city, which wanted more, more, more.

Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat said “we were thrilled with the response we received from film enthusiasts across the Valley. “As soon as the event was over, we immediately began discussions for growing and hosting the event for this year.” The mayor said, as cultural as this event is, it’s also a potential business for Peoria. “There is absolutely a potential for an economic impact, but for Peoria, it’s beyond ticket sales and restaurant sales,” Carlat said. “Council and I have been working hard to help create an environment that encourages an entrepreneurial ecosystem throughout our city, but especially the P83 area. There is so much potential for the district and when we have the privilege of bringing more folks and creative minds to see our amazing city, it’s always exciting to think about how that may lead to even more opportunities.” Back on the cultural side, Carlat said she is looking forward to the festival’s

new “Family Fun Day” at Huntington University, and discovering new filmmakers. “I’d like to say the Film Festival is about the films, but it’s really about the people,” Carlat said. “It’s about the people who contributed to making the films, the people who inspired the films, and the people who are sharing in the experience of visual storytelling. It’s moving and exciting to see the emotions that film can pull out of each of us.” The people angle brings us back to volunteers, the “extras” of the festival. “They do such an amazing job,” Carney said of the volunteers. “I can’t see how we would pull it off without them. “They’ll be responsible for our ticketing set up. We’ll have a team of volunteers managing seating and operations, getting people get in the right lines ushering, managing the crowd.” Of the 30 volunteers, about 20 are returning from last year. Four of the volunteers also helped select the films for this year’s festival. Kim Rodhouse is such a film geek, she drove up from Chandler last year,and will return this year as a volunteer director.

“It was an amazing experience to be part of the first Peoria Film Festival,” she said. “We got to be the volunteers to help make this a great experience and exciting festival for film lovers. “As a film lover myself, I am coming back because I love to be a part of something that is such a great event and to be able to be a part of this and help put it on is thrilling for me.” Talk about a grinder: Rodhouse was too busy helping behind the scenes to watch any of the offerings last year. “But I heard there were amazing films last year,” she said. That’s what being a film festival volunteer is all about: Making sure others have a good time and the opportunity for new experiences, new stories, new faces.

Fallen warrior’s spirit lives on in scholarships

BY DAVID LEIBOWITZ Peoria Times Columnist

He was 22 years old when he left this mortal life, on a dusty road in the township of Yusafiyah, a region of Baghdad known as the Triangle of Death. The date was May 22, 2005. Sgt. Kenny Schall, Phoenix-born and Peoria-raised, was riding in his Army Humvee in the thick of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Let the record show that while this was Kenny Schall’s last day alive, his story has yet to end. His parents, Terri and John, his sister Jessica and his brother Matthew, and a patriotic group of Phoenix firefighters have made sure of that. So have thousands of partygoers from around the Valley, attendees at a Hawaiian-themed charitable event known as “Get

Leid For Kenny.” This year’s version, set for Oct. 18, will be the eighth annual GLFK, to be hosted at Sunbar on Tempe’s Mill Avenue. Staged by an all-volunteer corps of Kenny Schall fans – most of whom never met this American hero – GLFK8 promises to raise in the neighborhood of $20,000 for the Sgt. Kenneth Schall Memorial Scholarship Fund and the United Phoenix Firefighter Charities. Terri Schall chokes up as she discusses Kenny and the 50 or so Valley students who have gone to college helped by the scholarship bearing his name. “There are no words to express how much this means to us,” says the proud mom, whose family also hosts an annual golf tournament memorializing Kenny.

“I am so honored that Kenny’s not been forgotten. It’s an amazing thing that he’s touched so many people after the fact.” Kenny’s capacity to inspire traces back through a Phoenix firehouse into his childhood in Peoria. A five-time medalist golfer at Centennial High School, Schall became best friends with a kid named Troy Holtorf, who grew up to be a Phoenix firefighter. It was Holtorf who told Kenny’s story of sacrifice to Mario Martinez and Ben Lindquist, firefighters with a knack for charitable work. Lindquist, inspired by the story of a local kid who joined the Army in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, called Terri Schall out of the blue and explained the concept of Get Leid for Kenny. “She probably thought we were nuts,” said Lindquist. “I told her, “Hey, we’re going to do this party and give you a bunch of money for charity.’ But Terri did her research and people kind of liked the idea and here we are.” Over time, GLFK has grown from a shindig in Lindquist’s garage to touring musicians filling Sunbar with rock-nroll, sponsors (including – full disclosure – yours truly) and about a thou-

sand event-goers who will raise a glass to Schall this year. “I just felt like I could really relate to Kenny’s story and we wanted to pay appreciation to him and everyone in the military, their service,” said Lindquist. “It’s become a kind of family.” In a time when social media can be toxic, GLFK has gone viral with an odd, positive twist. The event’s admission ticket is a unique T-shirt, which GLFKers have taken to wearing on vacations around the globe. Kenny fans have posted pictures of themselves and their t-shirts in the Cayman Islands, Cancun, Kauai, Telluride, Buckingham Palace – exotic places Sgt. Kenny Schall might have gone in his life post-Army. In this way, Schall’s story has transcended his grave in Arlington and those last moments on a dusty road in Iraq. “I know he’s proud of what we’ve done in his name,” says Terri Schall. “Kenny would be very proud and very humbled. He never wanted to be the center of attention … but I guess he has to take one for the team.” David Leibowitz has called the Valley home since 1995. Contact david@ leibowitzsolo.com

READERS’ VIEWPOINTS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Enough is enough Peoria neighbors, the Peoria schools are once again asking us to support an overriding of their budget. If you look at your recent property tax bill you will see that we are still paying hundreds of dollars per year for previous overrides. The new one they are asking for is huge. By my calculations, a $200,000 secondary valuation of your home will add another $400 or so per year to your property taxes for the next six years. Small businesses will be hit even harder. Enough is enough. Let them work

within their budget, we all have to. Vote no on the school budget override. Bryan Mihalek Peoria

Stardust Building Supplies offers sustainable solution to landfill waste BY ANDREA ESTRADA Peoria Times Staff Writer

At Stardust Building Supplies, improving the quality of life in Arizona and creating a more sustainable tomorrow is the ultimate goal. The nonprofit organization works to divert waste from landfills by salvaging new and gently-used materials from residential and commercial renovations and offering them to the community at affordable prices. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, over 500 million tons of construction materials went to waste in landfills across the country in 2015— much of which was in usable conditions. Since its inception in 1997, Stardust, which is a located in Glendale at 5150 W. Northern Avenue, diverted 80 million pounds of usable materials from landfills. From doors and windows, to appliances and furniture, both of the reuse centers offer materials at 50 to 80% off retail prices. Karen Jayne, the chief executive of-

Wham, bam, Stam hitting hard for Liberty football BY ERIC NEWMAN

sity roster, the most any player or coach can recall in recent memory. With such a large class carrying so much tradition and talent, it is difficult for an under-classman to make an impact, much less earn the respect of all his older teammates.

Peoria Times Staff Writer

Safety Jax Stam quickly became a tackling machine for Peoria’s Liberty High football team. A sophomore, Stam a has a teamhigh 26 tackles in a 4-2 start for the Lions. That success at the varsity level is nothing new, either. As a freshman in 2018, Stam made 59 varsity tackles, far-and-away the most of any freshman in Arizona. His football success started even younger than that. He has played football since he could walk. Compact and strong, he always loved the contact aspect of football most of all, even before tackling was allowed in his first seasons. “I always told my coaches I couldn’t wait to get the flags off and get to tackle football because I wanted to hit somebody. And that’s why I’ve always loved defense,” Stam said. In the summer of 2018, Stam played in his first varsity offseason practices. He impressed both coaches and teammates with his physicality and ability to learn the defense quickly. Stam even remembers stunning a few of his new teammates with a few hard hits during training. However, one person was not surprised. Liberty coach Mark Smith, who in decades of coaching said he has only started a handful of freshmen on varsity, already knew the kind of kid Stam is. “He would sit up there as an eighth-

grader and watch us practice after school in the spring every day,” Smith said at the Lions’ stadium, pointing to the bleachers. “How many middle-schoolers do you know that would do that?” The results show how hard he works. Liberty has over 40 seniors on its var-

“They saw how intelligent he is on the football field, how he reads the game, and how hard he was working,” Smith said. It is the large group of seniors who motivate Stam to play hard now. Four games remain for Liberty in the regular season, including a visit to Boulder Creek in Anthem on Friday, Oct. 11, and a match-up with powerful Pinnacle the following week. Stam is focused on making the most out of this year, especially for those who are in their last season. The Lions, with a quality finish, are a favorite to reach the 6A playoffs and potentially make a postseason run. Liberty will be relying on some big plays from Stam to get there. “For a lot of them, it’s their last chance,” he said of the senior class. “I want to do my part in making their last year memorable, and I hope that when I’m a senior, that the younger players do the same thing for me,” he said.

For the love of the play: Diverse cast brings ‘The Crucible’ to life BY TOM SCANLON

Peoria Times Associate Editor

What makes a play? Well, unless you’re going to wing it, first of all, you need a script. Peoria’s Theater Works got the rights to a piece by the great Arthur Miller, so big check there. You can do it in the park, but it helps to have a nice space. Big check there, as Theater Works has a sprawling, state-of-the-art facility — so big that, for “The Crucible,” director Chris Hamby decided to dial things down, with seating on the stage. Perhaps the most important thing needed to put on a play: the cast. The cast of 20 for Theater Works includes a Goodyear stay-at-home dad, a Peoria teacher, a Glendale high school junior, a Peoria director of nursing and

a St. Louis college graduate. They will be acting characters created by the renowned Miller during this charged drama set in the Puritan “witch hunt” in 1692 Salem, Massachusetts. “The Crucible” opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. Judging by the theater’s reputation, which includes 30 ariZoni Awards this year, if you go you’ll see a crisp, professional production with moments of extreme emotion that feel real. What you won’t see are the weeks of increasingly intense rehearsals that culminated in “tech week,” six-hour sessions where the actors run through scenes again and again. “It’s like endurance running,” said Veronica Carmack, the Peoria healthcare professional. She knows what she is talking about, as this is her 15th The-

ater Works production. “Tech week is really, really long,” added Carolyn Heinzer a Glendale resident and junior at BASIS Peoria; she plays Betty Parris. “You get to be with the people in your cast, which is nice. But it’s like, ‘Oh my gosh when will all this be over?’ “It’s good and awful.” Donovan Grey, the Goodyear dad who plays Judge Hathorne, listened with eyebrows raised. “I’ve never done tech week, so talk to me, “he said to his castmates - and received just-wait chuckles in return. Grey is not new to acting, but has never been in such a big-budget production. He is a former teacher and U.S. Army veteran who was introduced to Theater Works by his 16-year-old son, Caleb, who played in “Madagascar.”

Jim McCabe can relate, as his children actors also connected him to Theater Works. McCabb, who plays Giles Corey, is a Peoria resident who teaches math and special education at Liberty High School, also in Peoria. He’s a veteran of shows and tech weeks and says even the pressure-packed performances are a nice change from his day job. “I have kids with emotional problems, so it can be stressful,” he said. Acting, he added, “is really fun for me and it is a creative outlet. I love the people involved in it.” As opening night approached, he said he was “trying to lock in” his take on the litigious Giles. “I’ve done a lot of experimenting with different ways of playing things,” he said. Carmack is yet another “Crucible” cast member introduced to Theater

Peoria financial adviser named a top working mother BY TOM SCANLON

Peoria Times Associate Editor

Shea Boulware-Creed just made the list. Again. The Peoria financial adviser for RBC Wealth Management was one of six RBC financial advisors named to the 2019 edition of Working Mother’s Top Wealth Advisor Moms list. The list recognizes top financial advisors at financial institutions who are mothers with children living at home and under the age of 21. Boulware-Creed, of the Peoria-Sun City RBC, was honored for the second straight year. “It’s exciting,” said the mother of twins Willow and Wyatt, who will be 5 this month. Her husband, Jason, is a corporate tax attorney. For Boulware-Creed, 43, a typical day for her starts about 5:30 a.m. “That’s about when my twins wake up,” she said. After getting the kids taken care of, she’s off to work to meet clients old and new.

“My typical client is someone male or female who is ready to take control of their financial future and needs someone to guide them,” she said. “We start by finding out what their goals are financially and personally. Are they still working? How much longer do they want to work? What are their dreams when they retire? We talk a lot about family planning, children, college, how their children could manage money if God forbid what would happen to them.” Boulware-Creed is a third-generation financial planner. John Boulware Sr., her grandfather, started a practice in the West Valley in 1974. His son retired from the Marines and took over the business in 1989. Boulware-Creed left Los Angeles and came to the Peoria office 10 years ago. What have her clients been like lately, with the stock market roller coaster? “Every client is different and reacts differently,” she said. “I like to say most of my clients have been pretty calm, they understand the ups and downs

and the risks involved in being in the stock market. Those who are hesitant worry that this is the recession people have said is coming. “I respond by saying there is no magic equation.

Even if and when we see the next recession, their account is well diversified. “Go back in history and you’ll see the stock market has always recovered.” Shea Boulware-Creed, a Peoria financial adviser, was named to the 2019 edition of Working Mother’s Top Wealth Advisor Moms list.

New rose garden a healing place for veterans BY TOM SCANLON

Peoria Times Associate Editor

In wraparound sunglasses, a twisted goatee and black leather vest, the burly Bernie Kendall looks like a big, tough dude. Until Robert “Tiny” Hogan rolls up. Next to the hulking Hogan, tackle-sized, shave-headed, flowing Viking beard, Peoria resident Kendall almost looks like a high school kid. On Saturday, Oct. 4, these two Harley-riding, vest-wearing members of the Veterans IV Veterans Motorcycle Association rallied up to Glendale. They didn’t posse up at a bar, a greasy spoon or even a coffee joint. They were hanging out at a rose garden. It’s a healing thing. Candy Sheperd was there at Glendale’s Sahuaro Ranch Park, helping bring her vision to reality, finally. “Years ago, God put it on my heart that I need to start a healing garden for veterans,” said Sheperd. Two decades ago, she and her husband Bill were founding members of the Rose Society of Glendale. They ran their healing garden idea up the flagpole with the Glendale Chamber of Commerce, Glendale Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, Glendale Parks and Recreation and Mayor Jerry Weiers. Everyone thought it was an idea that should fly. So Candy Sheperd called Tyler Francis of Litchfield Park’s Francis Roses. The rose guru of the West Valley Brendon Gearty and Jemison Gearty, 5 years old, work on the rose garden at Sahuaro Ranch Park. (Peoria Times photo by Pablo

Robles.)

came through, big time. “He brought a bus with a crew of 52 people in December,” Candy Sheperd said. “They planted 1,587 roses in four hours.” The plants should be booming and blooming in the fall. But this is more than just an aesthetic boost for a Glendale park. The team behind the garden invites veterans to come to the garden, especially every at 9 every Saturday morning, when members of the associations will be on hand to guide newcomers and show them how to help prune, tidy and grow the garden. Or leave them to enjoy the garden in solitude, as the case may be. “A healing garden is a place where veterans can come and meditate, be with other like veterans,” Candy Sheperd said. She notes that the suicide rate among veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder is disturbingly high. And many veterans have a hard time “fitting in” when they leave the service. “I wanted a place where they could meet, have a structured thing to do,” said Candy Sheperd. “They can come enjoy other veterans and have a mission. “Being outdoors and gardening is healing.” Tiny Hogan groaned at that. “I joined the Army to get off the farm,” he growled, but with a grin. Seriously, though, he’s not into gar-

dening. “I don’t like plants,” he said. “And they don’t like me.” So what did he think when he heard about this healing rose garden? “I was thinking I have a lot of people that would benefit from a place like this, where’s it’s a safe place,” he said. He’s living proof you don’t have to be a rose buff to get something out of this place. “If they want to talk, they can. It’s a place to go. We have a lot of people that have a tough time leaving their houses,” said Hogan, a Desert Storm combat veteran who lives in Goodyear. “There are days I don’t want to see nobody. Days I don’t like people.” A few minutes later, Tiny Hogan had a rake in his hand and a smile on his face, as he helped prep the garden. Kendall, a veteran of both the Army and Air Force who lives in Peoria, was crouched with a clipping tool in his hand. “Combat veterans very often suffer from PTSD,” Kendall said. “With this garden, they can learn about roses,

learn how to deadhead them, learn how to prune. “It takes their mind off things. They can relax.” Unlike his buddy Hogan, Kendall knows his way around a garden. “I’ve always loved roses,” said Kendall. Candy Sheperd believes that is what makes this place unique. “There are a number of healing gardens around the country, but this will be the first one where roses are the primary focus,” she said. “Most of the other healing gardens are vegetable gardens or plants.” Though he’s not into most gardens, Hogan sized this one up and decided it was a good place to be. “It’s kind of isolated,” he said. “It’s a comfortable place to come sit. “It’s relaxing, to me.” And he had an invitation for other veterans, who might struggle with the idea of being in a strange place around strangers: “Just come and relax and watch.”

Huntington University a big player in this year’s Peoria Film Festival BY TOM SCANLON

Peoria Times Associate Editor

You might say Huntington University is ready for its close up. The Peoria school is a major supporting player in this year’s Peoria Film Fest, hosting a “Family Film Day.” Works by Huntington students and faculty will also be on display, for the community to see what’s going on at the new school, barely 3 years old. Family Film Day launches from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12. Guests can select from a series of hands-on activity stations focusing on different aspects of film production and geared to various age and ability levels. Stations are age appropriate and run the gamut of the filmmaking process. You can’t beat the price, as the event is free. Events include an animation and design workshop, which utilizes Huntington’s industry quality hardware and software to create art with the digital pens and software. Participants will also be able to shoot a live talk show or a movie scene in one of Huntington’s two studios. Kids will get to be on-air talent, direct scenes or operate the camera. “Huntington University is enthused about being part of the Peoria Film Fest,” said Jeff Berggren, director of Arizona Operations at Huntington University, an Indiana-based Christian college of liberal arts. “Family Day at the festival will be fun for everyone, but young students ages 10 and up will really enjoy some hands-on activities at HU. Parents and other adults are welcome to stop by for a tour of the Huntington facility while the workshop festivities are taking place.” Huntington University, at 8385 W. Mariners Way, Peoria, offers a nationally recognized digital media arts degrees. Huntington students and faculty will screen works as part of the “Shorts Collection” at the Film Fest. A frustrated runner looks to his past in “Kim,” by Chloe Caufield, a junior at Huntington. Allen struggles with the death of a loved one in “Be There,” from Huntington senior Stephen Davis.

The shorts will show at the festival’s Harkins Arrowhead Fountains Theatre base at 5:05 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11, 5:10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 and 1:10 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13.

The idea of Go Figure is to arrive at the figures given at the bottom and right-hand columns of the diagram by following the arithmetic signs in the order they are given (that is, from left to right and top to bottom). Use only the numbers below the diagram to complete its blank squares and use each of the nine numbers only once.

Each numbered row contains two clues and two answers. The two answers differ from each other by only one letter, which has already been inserted. For example, if you exchange the A from MASTER for an I, you get MISTER. Do not change the order of the letters.

Reconsidering consideration improves your game-winning serve CHURCH COMMUNITY CONNECTION Pastor Ed Delph Peoria Times Columnist

One reason why I write this article is to equip people for a better life. How? By improving their serve in the tennis match of life. Did you know tennis is in scripture? The Bible notes,”‘Moses served in Pharaoh’s court.” Let’s revisit a story I used years ago in this column (2005) but with a fresh thought. The story is told of a king in Africa who had a close friend with whom he grew up. The friend had a habit of looking at every situation that ever occurred in his life (positive or negative) remarking, “This is good!” One day the king and his friend were on a hunting expedition. The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently

done something wrong in preparing one of the guns for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off. Examining the situation, the friend remarked as usual, “This is good!” To which the king replied, “No, this is not good!” and proceeded to send his friend to jail. About a year later, the king was hunting in an area he should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals captured him and took him to their village. They tied his hands, stacked some wood, set up a stake and bound him to the stake. As they came near to set fire to the wood, they noticed that the king was missing a thumb. Being superstitious,

they never ate anyone who was less than whole. So, untying the king, they sent him on his way. As he returned home, he was reminded of the event that had taken his thumb and felt remorse for the treatment of his friend. He went immediately to the jail to speak with his friend. “You were right,” he said, “it was good that my thumb was blown off.” He proceeded to tell the friend all that had just happened. “And so, I am sorry for sending you to jail for so long. It was wrong of me to do this.” “No,” his friend replied, “This is good!” “What do you mean, ‘this is good?’ How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?” To which his friend replied, “If I had not been in jail, I would have been with you.” What would you have done if you were the king? If you are like me, you would have reacted much like the king. “This guy just blew my finger off. He has ruined my life. He must pay for this. Off to jail with him. End of story. No good could come from this.” But, as we see, it was not the end of the story. It was just the beginning of the story, improving his serve in the tennis game of life. Just like that king, when something crazy, horrible or unexpected happens to us, we have a knee jerk (or a thumb jerk) reaction. Not considering what happened to us could eventually work out for good or some higher purpose, we react rather than act, often to our own detriment. Sometimes life is like a tennis game. You start of losing the first three sets, but that doesn’t mean the game is over. Remarkably, the king discovered the reality of that old commercial, “But wait, there’s more!” In a near-death experience, much more dangerous than the thumb incident, this life experience revealed to him a bigger picture, the story beyond the story and the reason beyond the reason. The king did something most peo-

ple these days don’t. He considered his treatment of his friend. He looked at this life experience a different way because of the power of consideration. He considered his ways. He found good in what he thought was bad. He became a good finder rather than being a fault finder. He moved from a victim to a champion. And, he did something about it. After consideration, he went back to the friend and asked forgiveness and received it. His friend could have done the same thing the king did. He could have gotten into self-pity, self-deprecation, “he ruined my life,” or “I ruined my life,” and the like. His last statement is amazing. “This is good! If I would have not been in jail, I would have been with you!” Consideration works best when both sides do it. Notice the outcome of consideration. Without consideration, you would have a lose-lose scenario. Both the king and the friend would have lost their serve and the game. But with consideration, both the king and the friend were restored. What did that friend say about win-wins? “This is good.” It also improves your serve. The ability and power to consider is a powerful ally for us. It calms us. It empowers us. It improves our lives. What is consideration? Consideration is careful thought, over a period of time; a fact or a motive taken into account in deciding or judging something; thoughtfulness and sensitivity toward others. Some other words associated with consideration are reflection, study, deliberation, forethought, attention, reflection, kindliness, thoughtfulness, attentiveness, concern, courtesy, kindness, and tolerance. (Oxford Dictionary). Current culture shapers want us to instantly and emotionally react to everything we see, hear or feel, just like that king. Don’t fall for it. You will lose much more than you will gain. Reconsider consideration. It’s a game changer for you and your kin. Your serve!

Huge demand for school safety grants around the state BY PEORIA TIMES STAFF On Oct. 3, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman released an update regarding the abundance of School Safety Program grant applications. The response likely “will far exceed” the money approved. “One of the greatest wins of the 2019 legislative session was the expansion of Arizona’s School Safety Program, which allocated $20 million of new funding for school counselors, social workers and school resource officers,” said Hoffman. “After closing the grant application, our department has spent this past week conducting an initial review of the 896 applications submitted by 284 school districts and charter school organizations from across the state.” She said there were more than 1,100 position requests, with requests for school counselors comprising roughly

Answers

40%t of the total requests. Of the total, 34% were for a school-based social worker and about 26% for a school resource officer. “While it will take some time to get a complete picture of what schools have requested, our initial analysis shows that the demand will far exceed the $20 million in appropriated funds,” said Hoffman. “School safety and the social wellness of our students is a top priority for my administration, and I recognize the urgent need for additional funds to meet the demand of school communities.” Hoffman concluded that more funding is needed. “I look forward to a continuing dialogue with the governor’s office and the legislature to address the clear and immediate need for more funding for this program,” she said. “I urge our state leaders to join my call to action to meet the safety needs of our schools without delay.”
