Halloween in Scottsdale looking back

Gridiron

Scottsdale Public Library staff has been dressing up for decades to thrill children of all ages during Halloween festivities, according to Richard Howley, a longtime librarian. The libraries continue to host Halloween activities like trick-or-treat events at each branch the week before the fall holiday. There are also scary movie nights for teens at select branches. Check out www.scottsdalelibrary.org for details.

The staff at the Scottsdale Civic Center Public Library shows off its costumes in this undated photo.

By Gavin Maxwell “Dark money” interest groups have sparked extended debate among Scottsdale’s City Council candidates, leading to arguments about the extent of their influence over this year’s election. The nonprofit group Scottsdale Strong has contributed more than $90,000 in anonymous donations to the political committee Scottsdale United, which has promoted candidates Dennis Robbins, Linda Milhaven, and Jennifer Petersen in this year’s election. They’re anonymous in that Scottsdale Strong does not have to disclose who donated the money to it. The money contributed by Scottsdale Strong outweighs the campaign funds raised by any of the individual candidates so far. Candidate Kathy Littlefield was ranked fifth in August’s primaries and said she believes that the “dark money” contributions have affected her ranking. “There is a real concern that they are buying the election by forcing this ‘dark

money’ into the electoral process,” Littlefield said. She is afraid that the money coming from Scottsdale Strong will keep this year’s nonincumbents from being competitive. “They had $90,000 that they spent against me, and this time we (the nonincumbents) have been told that they are raising $300,000 right now to fight against the three of us who are not the candidates that they endorse.” Littlefield said. Former Scottsdale City Treasurer and City Council candidate David Smith shares Littlefield’s concerns. In a speech Smith gave on the topic, he said, “The three candidates who benefited from the ‘dark money’ expenditures (Milhaven, Petersen and Robbins) only spent $24,000 of their own donor money. The next three successful candidates (Smith, Littlefield and Cindy Hill) spent $61,000 of their donor money in the same reporting period.” Smith’s argument is that the “dark money” will allow the three benefiting

candidates to hold their own funds in reserve and eventually use them to outspend the campaign efforts of the others. Littlefield and Smith’s worry is that this uneven balance of spending may prevent the electorate from voting according to their best interests. Not everyone shares their concern, however. Jason Rose, a political consultant who has worked with Scottsdale campaigns, said he believes that the prevalence of “dark money” in this year’s election is being overstated. “No, it’s not anymore prevalent this year,” Rose said. “In the fall of 2010 (during the Scottsdale City Council election) there was more (dark) money spent. Over $100,000 actually.” He continued, “No one is buying votes. It is a pro-business effort that seeks pro-business candidates.” Petersen, one of the candidates

backed by Scottsdale United, said she has not expressed any support for their tactics. “I have never had any interaction with these groups,” she said. Petersen mentioned that in the past she has been on both sides of dark money, having been the benefactor and the victim. She stated that “dark money” is a result of a Supreme Court ruling (Citizens United) and is not an issue Scottsdale City Council candidates have an authority over. “I think all we can control is our own campaigns,” Petersen said. “The City Council has no authority over money whatsoever. I have run a very positive campaign and I don’t ever personally attack another candidate.” A campaign-finance complaint was filed against Scottsdale Strong earlier this year, but it was not found in violation of any Arizona laws. The nonprofit will be allowed to continue operating under the current campaign finance laws.

Be sure to pick up your copy for the comprehensive rundown of awesome events happening in October, including Gridiron looking back interviews, insightful celebrity columns and hundreds of things to do for the whole family. We love a pumpkin spiced latte as much as the next person, but seriously, does anyone else think the pumpkin spice trend has gotten out of control? It’s made its way to our bagels, margarine, Oreos and burgers. We’ll just stick to the classic, thanks. Congratulations to Executive Editor Christina Fuoco-Karasinski who garnered two third-place finishes in the recent Arizona Newspapers Association’s Better Newspapers Contest for her stories “Love Songs” and “Fandemonium.” Both of the stories appeared in our sister publication, The Valley Times. Nice job! Thirsty Lion Gastropub and Grill is opening its second Arizona location,

this time at Scottsdale Fashion Square, following the success of its first Valley eatery at Tempe Marketplace. The gastropub will open in February in the space that formerly housed Marcella’s Italian Kitchen, which closed in September 2011. Info: http:// thirstyliongastropub.com. Come on down! Scottsdale resident Diana Boden was a contestant on “The Price is Right.” It’s a big secret if she won any of the fabulous prizes, so tune in at 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, on CBS to find out. David Farca and William R. Metzler are two of the newest St. Joseph’s/Barrow Neurological Foundations’ newest board members. They will serve during fiscal year 2015.

Amy’s Baking Company is back in the news after the owner was accused of waving a knife at a man during an argument at the restaurant. A video from TMZ allegedly shows owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo cursing and yelling outside of the eatery. Amy restrains Samy, her husband, as he holds a long, silver item.

By Shelby Ray Valley business leader Steve Schwanz was recently awarded the coveted Jim Hill Award by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale. The award, established in 1999 after the death of former board president and member Jim Hill, is given to an individual who replicates Hill’s extraordinary qualities of dedication to the organization and the more than 17,800 children it serves. Schwanz was recognized for his dedication—serving 19 years and counting at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale and serving 12 years at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix. In the process, he has helped fund branches and outreach sites located in the greater Scottsdale/Phoenix areas and on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa and Hualapai Indian communities. “Steve has been a driver of the greater Scottsdale organization’s growth for almost two decades—helping us to keep up with the demand for youth services by motivating the community to support club projects,” said Steve Davidson, president/CEO at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale. In addition to his years of service, Schwanz has also impacted the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale in many other ways, including: • Developing an annual celebrity golf invitational that, since its inception, has raised $2.5 million for the clubs. ��� Creating an annual wine-and-food event, now called Live and Local and set for Nov. 8 at Scottsdale Civic Center. It raises more than $250,000 for the clubs each year.

He understands the value of a dollar. According to a recent study funded through a grant by the Virginia G.

Matt Dana, a Scottsdale estate planning attorney, is joining the national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP, effective Nov. 1, along with two associates and two paralegals from his company. Their affiliation with Quarles & Brady will build on the work of Quarles & Brady attorney Trisha Baggs, a highly regarded estate planning attorney in the firm’s Phoenix office. With the addition of Dana and his team, Quarles & Brady will establish a presence in Scottsdale, its 10th location nationwide and third in Arizona. The new office will be located at 8817 E. Bell Rd., Suite 201, Scottsdale, 85260. The new Scottsdale office will continue to serve local trusts and estates clients, but the service offerings at that location will multiply, as it delivers Quarles & Brady’s full range of business legal representations as a full member of the national network.

Also joining Quarles are associates Trevor Whiting and Todd Smith, and paralegals Jennifer Skubic and Kate Sieger. Whiting and Sieger will join Dana in the firm’s Phoenix office, while Smith and Skubic will work in the Scottsdale office. “We’re gratified that our firm continues to grow at such a robust pace, especially because that growth is driven by solid opportunities,” said firm chairwoman Kimberly Leach Johnson. “We look forward to increasing our trusts and estates portfolio through the special strengths that Matt Dana and his team bring to the firm, and we’re also delighted to add Scottsdale to our national service network. It’s a win-win development.” Dana added, “My team and I have been providing our clients with premium trusts & estates services for many years, and now we have an opportunity, together with Trisha Baggs and the entire Quarles &

Learn More at the Library By the Scottsdale Public Library

The Civic Center Library is offering the public an opportunity to interact with Valley authors represented in the “Local Collection” during the facility’s book sale. The Local Authors Book Sale is set for 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at the library, located at 3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale. Call (480) 312-READ for more information. Among the authors scheduled to visit are Marcia Fine, Ron Tasso, Nita Lapinski, Victoria Kjos and Richard Corey. From 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., the library is hosting a special lecture by Shona Patel, who penned the book “Teatime for the Firefly.” She will have copies of it available for purchase. Pat Toftoy, Civic Center library assistant, said local authors can bring in their library-bound books to be added to the selection, which boasts more than 350 local authors in all genres, including children and young

adult books. The author submissions must be donated to the library and therefore become property of it. The Local Collection is based on the “Eat Local” movement, which encourages residents to shop and eat within the Scottsdale city limits. The author meet and greet gives writers the chance to showcase and market their works. The sale, Toftoy said, is ideal because the library is not able to accommodate every author who would like to visit. “We have so many people that ask to have workshops and present their books, but nine times out of 10 we can’t do it,” she said.

The Scottsdale Public Library is a treasure for the adult learner. Of course, we do that with our books and other materials. However, a new resource has been added. This program, Universal Class, is a quick link away on the library’s website, www.scottsdalelibrary.org. More than 500 online noncredit courses are online and accessible with Scottsdale Public Library cards. From accounting to Web development, these personal enrichment courses are available on your schedule 24 hours a day. Attend class and do assignments just as you would in any online education program. Each course has a real instructor, with whom you communicate with via email. You have up to six months to finish each course. The Scottsdale Public Library has partnered with Arizona State University and the City of Scottsdale Economic Development office to create a collaborative workspace in Civic Center Library. The library

hosts variety of programs in our Eureka Loft. Eureka is free and open to the public. The area is equipped with free WiFi, coworking areas, a collaborative computer station and access to library resources. For more information go to http://www.meetup.com/EurekaScottsdale.

Four Fighting for 2 Governing Board Seats By Tyler Prime The Maricopa County Community Colleges, the nation’s largest community college district, will soon see two additional faces on its governing board. Mario Diaz, John Heep, Tracy Livingston and Eddie Tiggs are the four candidates running for these two new seats on Nov. 4. All Maricopa County registered voters have the opportunity to choose the winners. Diaz, a 47-year-old Scottsdale resident, has a long history with public office. “I was a public servant for 10 years working for a congressman, a U.S. attorney, an attorney general, a governor and a senator,” Diaz said. For the past 15 years, Diaz has operated a political public relations firm. If elected to the board, Diaz said he would focus on student success. For Diaz, success starts by being fiscally prudent. Diaz said that state legislators have been cutting millions of dollars from the community colleges’ budget. “It causes a stress and strain on the

services the community colleges can deliver to students,” Diaz said. Heep considers himself more of a businessman than a politician. In a speech at a Sun City West Republican Club-sponsored candidate forum, Heep explained the community college system in terms of business. “I usually go back and take a look at what it is far as the market is concerned and what we have here is something huge and what I’m saying is—holy mackerel,” Heep explained. Livingston is a 51-year-old Arizona native and a former Maricopa County Community Colleges adjunct professor. She has worked the last 14 years as an English teacher at Dysart High School. She also holds a position with the Peoria school governing board. If elected, Livingston said she wants to enhance the community colleges’ relations with the public. “I really want the schools to become alive and known to the high

school level so enrollment can start increasing,” Livingston said. “There should be more emphasis placed on the lower cost, lower class size, the remediation process that they do so well and the great certification programs that the universities don’t have to offer,” she said. Finally, 59-year-old Tiggs has lived in the Chandler area for 23 years. He has held public office positions on medical boards and homeowners associations. Tiggs is a member of the RAYHA WKAcademy’s AWARDS GeorgeG Gervin Prep board Corporate & Sports Recognition of directors. Serving Arizona Since 2000 Tiggs would like to focus the board’s attention on improving

science, technology, engineering and mathematics or “STEM” learning. “I advocate focusing on enhancing the STEM system and general education requirements so that when those students transfer from the junior college, they have increased their analytical thought processes,” Tiggs said. Tiggs blames complacency for the decline in education quality. “I am not a proponent of a tenure system, complacency has a tendency to set in when we are given the opportunity to remain for long periods of time without being tested,” Tiggs said.

I

’m married―twenty years. I’m actually happily married. So, the other day my wife walked by, as I was commenting on the garbage overflowing. She was walking out to the pool, in full swimming attire, and I was distracted for a moment. I just stared at her as she walked to the back door. The problem is that I was mid-sentence, commenting on the overflowing garbage that I was about to take out, and I said, “Man, that’s an awful lot of junk jammed into a little space.” I am, of course, referring to the garbage, but my wife turns around, and I’m looking right at her. Ever been misunderstood? I’m a preacher. No, it’s true. One thing I’ve noticed is that the Bible is often misunderstood. For instance, as a young man I was told that to be a Christian you couldn’t drink, smoke, have tattoos, or cuss. That’s not actually in the Bible. Good thing too, because by the seventh grade, I could cuss as good as any baby-booming sailor. I was going to church, but by man’s definition I wasn’t a Christian. If I stopped cussing, then I might be back in? Paul teaches us in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that to be a follower of Christ―a Christian―I must believe in Christ as the only son of God, who died for my sins; Christ has rendered my sins of no consequence. It’s not about what I do, but about what I believe. Paul says in Romans 7 that he keeps doing what he doesn’t want to do. Sin has a hold on him. And then he goes on to say that it isn’t him that does it, but sin living in him. What? Paul is sinning? That’s what it says, and while writing this no less! Christ has created this new scenario, so that even when I do sin, I didn’t do it; it’s the sin living in me that did it. My wife says, “Who left this kitchen such a mess?” And I say, “Not me. It was sin living in me.” So then the seventh-grade me who cussed was still a Christian. While the church may have rejected me,

NOV. 15 God did not. And as you can see, neither did the Bible. And while man may condemn me for not hitting “the bar,” Paul writes in Romans 8:1 that “there is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ.” This means I’m innocent, not by my own effort, but instead, by Christ, who lived perfect for me, and then gives that perfection to me by faith in Him. Satan doesn’t like the Gospel. He wants you to believe that the Bible isn’t relevant anymore, or that it’s boring, or that it’s not accurate. If he can get you to misunderstand the Gospel, even just a little, he can keep you in prison. It’s how he deceived Eve. He said “Did God really say…? God’s holding out on you; eat this if you want to become like Him.” And he’s saying the same stuff today. “Is the Bible really truth?” Yes. Misunderstanding the Bible has too many people believing that the church fundamentally rejects their lifestyle, their decisions, or their past. But this isn’t what the Bible says. If church is only for the perfect, then none of us get to go. God sent Jesus for the sinner, not the saint. While man rejected a woman caught in the act of adultery, Jesus did not; He accepted her and forgave her. Jesus has a different message about Christianity. He died for the sinner. For this reason, I gladly raise my hand and say, “I was a sinner.” God loves and accepts you―He created you. And this was the plan all along. You see, when I stop letting sin separate me from God in my mind, then, and only then, do I become empowered to live for Christ. Why? Because sin loses its hold on me. Receive God’s grace today. Jesus died for you. When you come to church, just be U―the U that Jesus died for.

Golfer Asks Fellow Scottsdale Residents to Help ‘Elevate Phoenix’ By Alison Bailin Batz For the past five years, PGA golf superstar Tom Lehman has been working to elevate. And, he isn’t referring to his golf game. “In 2009, I had the great honor to become a founding board member of Elevate Phoenix, a unique and often lifechanging program for Arizona youth that provides in-school teaching; after-school mentoring/tutoring; career instruction/ post-secondary preparation; character, life skills and peer leadership development; community service; adventure activities; and reading/literacy improvement  within urban public schools,” said Lehman, a Scottsdale resident. Founded in Denver as Colorado Uplift, the model had worked effectively with urban youth for more than 30 years. In line with Colorado’s success, the local organization’s primary mission, according to Lehman, is to strengthen character, empower

knowledge and elevate relationships, and its success is directly measured by the success of its youth participants. Elevate Phoenix is serving 4,500 local students at a cost of just $222 per student. As the nonprofit organization got off the ground, it was funded wholly by contributions from businesses and civic organizations. However, with an eye toward growing the number of children it serves, Lehman and Elevate Phoenix have launched the Weekend Jetaway Culinary Casino Classic, presented by AXA Advisors Southwest, Aero Jet Services, Jet Set Magazine and Prisma. Lehman, excited at the prospect of doubling the number of local students served over the next few years through funds at this event, will host the event. Weekend Jetaway will take place in a private jet hangar within the Scottsdale Airpark on Saturday, Nov. 1. It will feature live music and gourmet food and drink from chefs across the Valley including Alliance Beverage,

By Tyler Prime Trick-or-treating, a haunted house and a hot-air balloon display return to Salt River Fields for a fourth year in the family-friendly Spooktacular. The event is scheduled for 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24, and Saturday, Oct. 25. Aerial Solutions, owned by Scott Clifton, coordinates the hot-air balloon display. The company utilizes hotair balloons for corporate advertising and events such as the Spooktacular, where guests can get up and personal with the hot-air giants. “People can walk right up to the balloon and watch the pilot and the crew inflate the balloon and stand it up,” Clifton said. At the Spooktacular, most of the balloons stay on the ground and the ones that do fly don’t go beyond the limit of a tether. However, this grounded hot air balloon event has a different kind of appeal. This type of event is known as a “balloon glow.” “Essentially, these things are sevenstory-tall light bulbs,” Clifton said. One of the popular features of Spooktacular and the balloons is that at each station children will have the opportunity to get Halloween candy. “We have candy at every balloon,” said Derek Standinski, event coordinator at Salt River Fields. “Children are encouraged to bring trick-or-treat bags and go from hot-air balloon to hot-air balloon to collect candy.” Clifton promised that kids should have something extra to get excited about.

“We’ve extremely upped the ante as far the amount of candy we have,” Clifton said, “I think we have almost double the candy from years past.” Patrons will also have a chance to play with animals, buy merchandise and maybe adopt animals from Waggin’ Wheels, a division of the Arizona Human Society. “The whole concept is, ‘Let’s go out to events or areas that may not have homeless pets up for adoption and bring them to the people,’” said Bretta Nelson, the society’s public relations manager. To fit in with the crowd, Waggin’ Wheels will join the Spooktacular theme. “Our pets will be decked out in Halloween bandanas and things like that,” Nelson said. The Spooktacular’s haunted attractions come from two different sources. The haunted house is set up and run by AZ Scream Par. Meanwhile, a group not normally known for being scary operates the spook trail. “We partner with Saguaro High School. They have students from their choir program come out and do some acting for us along the spook trail,” Standinski said. The event will also feature food and drink vendors, live music and fireworks. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children, and kids 2 years of age and younger are free. Buy tickets here: http://srfballoonfestivals.com.

The local moving company Two Men and a Truck Scottsdale is set to participate in the Junior League of Phoenix Touch-A-Truck on Saturday, Oct. 18. Touch-A-Truck is a family-friendly event that offers children a hands-on opportunity to explore a variety of machinery and to meet the people who move, protect and serve the Valley communities. It will be held in the Sears parking lot at Paradise Valley Mall from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Many vehicles will be on display including a new Two Men and a Truck Scottsdale moving truck. Long known as the “movers who

care,” Two Men and a Truck strives to give back to the communities around it through various community service projects and donations. Additionally, 10 cents of every move goes to the American Cancer Society, and in 2013, the companywide locations gave $43,093. Two Men and a Truck Scottsdale will be donating its time, trucks and moving services to help ensure the event goes smoothly. This is the second year the company has donated its time and participated in the event. For more information, call Two Men and a Truck Scottsdale at (480) 991-1805 or visit www.twomenscottsdale.com.

Girl Scouts: Serving Others, Building Skills

By Tracy House They may be best known for their cookies, but there is more to Girl Scouts than the annual fundraiser. And for troop leader Alanna Iannone, her daughters have benefited in far more ways than just selling cookies. Iannone is the leader for two troops: a Cadettes’ troop with her oldest daughter, Brianna, 12, and a Junior troop with Bailey, 9. Girl Scouts are grade appropriate: Daisies are kindergarten and first; Brownies are second and third; Juniors are fourth and fifth; and Cadettes are sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Girls can continue as Ambassadors and Seniors until they are 18 years old. Founded more than 100 years ago by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah,

Georgia, the Girl Scouts boast more than 2.3 million girl members who have taken the promise, “On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And, to live by the Girl Scout Law.” Iannone has been a troop leader for five years, but was a parent helper for three years prior to that. The Scottsdale mom was a Girl Scout herself up through fifth grade. Girls interested in joining Girl Scouts can check with their school or go to the Girl Scout website, www. girlscoutsaz.org to be placed in the right troop. Iannone says most of the girls who join are from wordof-mouth. There is $15 registration fee for the year. “Most troops have additional dues,” Iannone said.

“Usually fairly modest.” She mentioned her dues included the uniform, but that is dependent on the troop. “We have a very active neighborhood that our girls are in,” Iannone said. “Our neighborhood puts on things like bowling and ice skating and camping trips, and if they elect those they’re optional Alanna Iannone, center in the pink sunglasses, brought her and there would be a fee troop up to Shadow Rim in Payson for a weekend campout.  for those.” She did say that there are While the cookies are synonymous scholarship opportunities available with Girl Scouts, Iannone said it’s for girls who may not be able to afford teaching the girls leadership, service the fees. “No girl doesn’t get into Girl and community betterment as they Scouts because of money.” earn badges that are important.

Heat items up together in the oven after the turkey is done and have everything done at the same time, in less time. If you have a toaster oven, you can try heating up side dishes there as well.

Whether it’s cleaning up after bunnies at a shelter, leading the younger girls in meetings or teaching about recycling, character building is a central theme of the Girl Scouts. “The girls want to do the service. They love to do the service. They want to be part of it and they’re excited they can help in the community however they can.” For Iannone, two of the most important aspects for her girls have been the long-lasting friendships that they’ve made and exposing them to activities and opportunities they never would have tried had they not been in Girl Scouts. She said that Brianna has been in Girl Scouts since kindergarten and

has continued her friendships into middle school. If it hadn’t been for Girls Scouts, Iannone said, she might never had known how gifted Brianna is at leadership. “She can move the world because she can control a room of kindergartners.” As for building skills, Iannone said, “There are things you’d like to try... but you might not make the time to do it, but when you’re in Girl Scouts you have a dedicated hour to try some of these things that you wouldn’t have gone and done. That’s one of my big things, you never know what you’re going to be good at unless you to try it. “That’s what I love so much about it,” Iannone continued. “Not only the sisterhood that happens, but they’re trying so many things and building skills that they may not have made the time to try or do.”

But the salmon was soft and flakey and didn’t impart too much of a Cajunflavor profile, saving the true flavor of the salmon so it shone through when eaten with tortillas.

“There is a jazz club in Phoenix called The Nash, which is my brother, Lewis Nash, a great Phoenix drummer who lives in New York and played in my band for a little while. I like his spot. I like hanging out there.” Nash is a brother in jazz music and not of blood relation to the musically talented Marsalis family, who hails from New Orleans. His musical family includes father, Ellis, and brothers, Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason Marsalis. Although jazz is in his blood, the construction and appeal of

Baroque music is one that Marsalis appreciates. “I think that in the long run, it develops a certain level of curiosity and changes the way that you hear things,” Marsalis finished. “Marsalis Well-Tempered: An Evening with Branford Marsalis Featuring the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia” begins at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 19, at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 E.

What’s Cooking? By Jan D’Atri

Pumpkin Cookies Two Ways Chocolate chip cookies may be America’s favorite treat for most of the year, but they’re going to have to move over this month—or at least share the stage—with the real star in November, the pumpkin cookie. Ultra moist, simple to make and so wonderful to give as gifts, the pumpkin cookie is the treat, at least in my family, that everyone looks forward to in the fall. I’ve shared with you my two favorite recipes. The first one makes whipping up a batch of these pumpkin delights

super easy because a box of yellow cake mix eliminates a few extra steps. The second recipe adds the beloved chocolate bits into a rich pumpkin batter. The secret to the moistest cookies ever is to let the cookies cool a bit, and then immediately put them in an airtight container. Enjoy a beautiful platter of pumpkin cookies or give them as scrumptious gifts from your kitchen! Let the holiday season officially begin!

Pumpkin Cake Cookies 1 (15 oz.) canned pure pumpkin (Not pumpkin pie mix) 1 egg 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 box yellow cake mix 1/2 cup rolled oats 2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (or 1 1/2 teaspoons allspice plus 1 teaspoon cinnamon) 1 cup chopped walnuts 1/2 cup dried cranberries, optional Vanilla or cream cheese frosting, optional

bring your friends to mix and chill!

In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients. Add in dry ingredients and mix well. Drop by tablespoons onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Ice with vanilla or cream cheese frosting if desired. Store in airtight container.

Since the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1991, it has strived to help educate visitors about the natural beauty of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. To ensure that this area will be sustained for future generations, the conservancy is committed to education, research, partnerships, advocacy and safe and respectful access to the region. By learning about the history of the preserve and understanding its significance, patrons are able to enjoy their visits to the area even more. To further that mission, the Victory Road Leadership Conference on Jan. 14 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is donating a portion of the proceeds from the event to the conservancy. Speakers at the event include Merril Hoge, former NFL star and ESPN analyst; Alison Levine, team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition; Kirk Lippold, commander of the USS Cole; Tori Murden McClure, the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean; Chris Waddell, the first paraplegic to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro; Eric Kapitulik, founder of “The Program” and U.S. Marine special operations officer; Jack Andraka, an inventor and scientist and the youngest nominee for the Nobel Prize; and Pat Williams, an NBA Hall of Famer and vice president of the Orlando Magic. Edward Phillips, director of development and communications for the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy in Scottsdale, said the speakers will all address the event’s theme of “Breaking Boundaries Beyond Expectations.” That will cover the need for people to step outside of their comfort zone and away from what is familiar to them. By doing this, people can become more successful on professional and personal levels. “The 2015 program will highlight the compelling stories of the some of the world’s most influential and dynamic on the town

leaders and groundbreaking innovators who have made profound, amazing leaps, often facing great adversity, while building a winning culture with the hopes of cultivating new leaders,” Phillips said. He is confident that the speakers sharing their personal experiences will help to empower those in attendance. As a beneficiary of the event, Phillips said the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy champions the sustainability of Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve—the largest urban preserve in the United States—for the benefit of current and future generations. “The conservancy, through their more the 600 volunteer stewards, connect the community to the 30,000acre preserve through education, research, advocacy, partnerships and safe, respectful access,” he said. Phillips said he is looking forward to the Victory Road Leadership Conference, which he said will be sure to be “one amazing day.” “The conference will bring together an eager community of energetic, passionate and highly motivated men and women to immerse and engage with world-changing messages.” McDowell Sonoran Conservancy is located at 16435 N.
