Eureka! Eureka!


ccording to Greek legend, one of the greatest scientific discoveries of all-time happened in a bathtub. The tyrant Hiero II of Syracuse suspected the local blacksmith of using some silver in a crown he’d ordered that was supposed to be pure gold. The ruler asked a brilliant young mathematician named Archimedes to determine what precious metals were used for the crown. While taking a bath, the scholar noticed the water rose higher the more his body sank into the tub, and realized that the displaced water was a measure of his volume. Because gold is denser than silver, he reasoned, a crown with mixed metals would have to be bulkier than a pure gold one to weigh the same – and would thus displace more water in the tub. Archimedes was reportedly so excited about his discovery that he ran home, naked and wet, shouting “Eureka! Eureka!” (Greek for “I have found it!”) We’re not going to run down the road soaked and unclothed, but like Archimedes, we’re excited about the things we’ve discovered around Scottsdale for this “Hidden Gems” issue. If you’ve ever wanted to throw a party in an airplane hangar or get married on a motorcycle, Niki D'Andrea we found the spot for you (“Luxe Be a Lady,” Executive Editor page 26). And if you’ve ever wondered what’s hiding in the storage rooms of the Musical Instrument Museum, we sleuthed that, too (“From the Vaults,” page 30). Managing Editor Becky Bracken followed some strange frequencies into the heart of the Airpark to uncover a new neighbor (“Runway Radio,” page 18) and unearthed some fun anecdotes from consignment store owner Darlene Richert – like the one about the time someone dropped a Picasso on her doorstep. Find her story, “Treasure Hunter,” starting on page 23. As far as furtive patios go, staff writer Mike Butler unveils the delights at O.H.S.O. (page 22), and he found his way to some goats (did you know there’s a Nubian goat farm in the neighborhood?). Mike spent some time with the kids for his story on The Simple Farm (page 35). And since this issue is all about revealing hidden gems and discovering new things, it’s the perfect time to break in our expanded dining section, designed to introduce you to the newest nosh spots around the Airpark and find fresh flavors at old favorites. The buffet starts on page 46. We’ve also launched a monthly travel feature, “Fly-In Vacation” (page 38), geared specifically toward airport-rich destinations around Arizona and the Southwest. Our first foray is to Sedona, a place with many sacred and secret spots, including vortexes of supposed spiritual energy where some people go to find something important – themselves. It’s enough to make us shout “Eureka! Eureka!”

EPICURIAD street food event will benefit brain cancer research

Scottsdale nonprofit foundation Beer For Brains will host the EPICURIAD event on April 29 at Allstate Appliances on Hayden Road, with twelve notable culinary talents vying for a medal. The event begins with a VIP face-off between two award-winning street food chefs, who will flip a coin to determine whether they must cook with beer or with wine, before getting 35 minutes to create a dish. The main event follows, and includes copious food samples, craft beer and wine, and culminates with awards for Best Pairing and Best Entrée (as voted by the audience) and Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for the 12 competing chefs. Cooks in the competition include kitchen gurus from Saffron Jak, Electric Sliders, United

The EPICURIAD event raises funds for brain cancer research.

Lunchadores, Flying Saucer, Mingo’s Louisiana Kitchen, Mustache Pretzels, Frittes Street and more. Proceeds from tickets ($95 per person, $150 per VIP ticket) benefit the Beer For Brains Foundation, which raises money for brain cancer research. The nonprofit organization was founded in 2007 by Louis Dolgoff, after he lost his wife, a craft beer fan, to a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumor. To date, the foundation has raised more than $250,000 to help find a cure. “If ever there were an event that my gourmet chef Mom and I would want to attend and participate in, it would be

Nine years ago, we lost my younger brother, at age 40, to brain cancer. We will forever be committed to making sure research paves the way for cures in the near future.” For more information, visit …continues on page 12

Sam Elliott stars in The Hero, premiering at Phoenix Film Festival this month.

Celluloid celebration returns to Harkins Scottsdale 101

Phoenix Film Festival landed on MovieMaker magazine’s list of “The 25 Coolest Film Festivals,” and the annual event shows no signs of slowing down. This month, 25,000 people are expected to visit Harkins Scottsdale 101 theaters over eight days, taking in more than 175 films across a wide range of genres including animated shorts, documentaries, drama, sci-fi and horror movies, foreign films and a student cinema showcase. The opening night premiere event features food, cocktails and a screening of The Hero, starring Sam Elliott as an aging Western movie star who attempts to tie up loose ends and make amends after being diagnosed with cancer. Other notable offerings at this year’s festival include Brave New Jersey, a comedy about a small town’s overreaction to Orson Welles’ 1938 radio reading of “War of the Worlds”; Different Flowers, which depicts an impromptu road trip of two sisters into rural America to meet their farmer grandmother (played by Shelley Long); and the psychological chiller The Transfiguration, an official selection at Cannes Film Festival. Ancillary events such as workshops, a kids’ day, a silent auction of movie memorabilia and the Sunday Night Copper Wings Awards Party add to the action. Phoenix Film Festival takes place April 6 through 13 at Harkins Scottsdale 101, 7000 E. Mayo Boulevard. A full schedule and ticket information are available at

Jewish Family and Children’s Service raises $300,000 to help foster kids Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) raised more than $300,000 at its Brighter Tomorrow Luncheon, held Friday, Feb. 24 at the Arizona Biltmore. The luncheon was attended by more than 450 people and focused on JFCS’ Real World Job Development Program, which provides educational and job assistance to foster youth transitioning into adulthood. The luncheon’s keynote speaker was Andrew Bridge, Director of the Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation, a New York Times bestselling author, lawyer and an advocate for children in foster care, in juvenile justice systems and with mental disabilities. Bridge, who grew up within the foster care system, spoke about his and JFCS’ collective commitment to social justice and seeking lasting solutions to the challenges that confront foster youth.

“The goals that Andrew addressed during his speech are the same goals that our team of social workers and clinicians work towards every day,” said Dr. Lorrie Henderson, President and CEO of JFCS. “Because of the generosity and commitment of our donors, lives will be transformed now and into the future. Our supporters truly create a brighter tomorrow for our community.” JFCS’ programs are focused on building a stronger community by offering quality behavioral health and social services to children, families and adults. JFCS’ dedication to its mission is strengthened by its commitment to the Jewish value system, a system that cares about all humanity.

airparkbusinessnews Boys & Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale launches $1 million match challenge

In order to raise funds for teen centers and gyms for Scottsdale youth, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale has launched a $1 million match challenge, aptly dubbed “One in a Million.” Philanthropists Ellie and Michael Ziegler have vowed to match every dollar donated to the campaign, up to $1 million. The campaign goal is to raise $3.5 million to build new additions and improve old facilities at the Boys & Girls Clubs in Desert Ridge and Grayhawk.

“Michael and I believe in the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale and the importance of creating higher education opportunities and positive role models for our teens,” Ellie Ziegler says. “The intent of our challenge grant is to create a groundswell of community support, by doubling the immediate impact of every dollar collected.” Michael Ziegler, an attorney, adds “Attendance at the Vestar Branch has outpaced capacity, due to Desert Ridge’s rapid growth since the Club was established 10 years ago. Funds collected from "One in a Million" will finance the muchneeded revitalization of the current teen center at the decade-old Vestar Branch, and the addition of a half gymnasium to support the needs of the growing population base.” Funds will also be used to build a teen center and full gymnasium at the Thunderbirds Branch. “These state-of-the-art upgrades for our Thunderbirds and Vestar branches are critical to sustaining the overall well-being of teens in our communities,” says Dr. Lisa Hurst, CEO of Boys & Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale. “Together, with the ‘One in a Million’ initiative, we can continue to provide a positive, safe environment for children and teens to learn, grow and be part of a community that empowers their futures.” For more information on the campaign and Boys & Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale, visit 

Valley sportscaster Craig Fouhy hosts a mid-morning show on The Fanatic.

RUNWAY Radio Local sports and money news finds a home in the Scottsdale Airpark By Becky Bracken


he Airpark is known for its golf courses, resorts, restaurants and beautiful people basking under blue skies. But what many might not know is the Airpark is emerging as a hub for sports and news in the Valley, thanks to two truly local radio stations broadcasting right off the runway. Money Radio 1510 AM, KFNN, is the Valley’s longest locally owned radio station and offers consumer advice and money news. The Fanatic 1580 AM is a brand new local sports station launched earlier this year by the same team, CRC Broadcasting Company, led by President Ron Cohen. Both stations broadcast out of offices just off Raintree and the 101 in the heart of the Airpark. Driving downtown you might have seen the call letters KFNN on the side of a building on Central Avenue. But that hasn’t been the home of the station for years, according to Cohen. For some reason, the building managers just haven’t taken down the sign, which is just fine with Cohen, who is happy to get a little free advertising. “We were down on Central for 21 years because that was important back in what I like to call the ‘shoe leather days,’ to be centrally located,” Cohen says. But while his offices were downtown, for the past 20 years Cohen has lived in North Scottsdale. So when the opportunity presented itself, naturally he was attracted to the idea of bringing his business closer to home. “Then the freeways were built, technology de-emphasized the centralized location, and a client

can do a radio show from their office and it sounds great.” Seven years ago he moved the operation to the Airpark. “My commute went from 35 minutes to five,” he says. But it wasn’t just drive time on his mind. He said it was the particular unit which became available that caught his attention. It’s right next to the post office, which Cohen says is the second highest traffic spot in the Airpark, drawing plenty of eyes to his operation. “So you know what the highest traffic spot in the Airpark is?’ Cohen asks. Kierland? WestWorld? Nope. “Costco.” No surprise there. With the addition of The Fanatic, there are now 18 employees of CRC Broadcasting in the Airpark. The company also has two employees operating stations in Palm Springs, California. “We really like it here,” Cohen says. “We just expanded and signed a new 10-year lease.” In addition to local money and sports news, the stations are always looking for ways to reach the neighboring community. For instance, on tax day, April 18, they will set up tables outside the station and broadcast live with giveaways and other fun events as people file into the post office to mail off their returns. …continues on page 20

…continued from page 18 The Fanatic is the home of prep sports in the Valley and in partnership with the Better Business Bureau, which Cohen has served on the board of for more than 12 years, the station honors outstanding student athletes – not for their athletic performance, but for being good kids and good citizens. The Fanatic 1580 is simulcast on 99.1 and 99.3 FM and boasts a morning show with Ray and Bauer, formerly of 910 AM KGME, and a mid-morning show with ABC15’s Craig Fouhy. Lunchtime features national host Jim Rome. Mike “Roc” Muraco, Dan Manucci and Shawn Crespin have moved over from 1060AM to host a show during the afternoon drive. Cohen says he sees a bright future for his new business.

“It’s great being an independent. When we get a good idea, it doesn’t go to a committee, and we have the ability to innovate,” Cohen says. “I figure out how to say ‘yes’ rather than ‘no.” He thinks major players will start to take notice of the Valley’s newest sports radio station: “I feel it is inevitable all of major teams will see the quality of our programming and signal. It’s just a matter of time.” 

Humans and dogs alike enjoy happy hour at this North Scottsdale brewery Photo and story by Mike Butler


ou don’t have to wait until 5 o’clock to have a great time at O.H.S.O. Because owner Jon Lane figures no one works 9 to 5 anymore, happy hour lasts from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Out of the gate, O.H.S.O. distinguished itself by crafting excellent beer, and happy hour is an excellent time to explore those brews and those of other Arizona craft brewers. Lane says the North Scottsdale O.H.S.O. at 15681 N. Hayden Rd., #112, has a little different personality than the Arcadia and Paradise Valley locations. It has the busiest lunch by far because of the Airpark’s corporate nature. Other than that, the place can be unpredictable due to the ebb and flow of events in North Scottsdale. A Tuesday afternoon might be busier than a Friday, for example. Since the Airpark O.H.S.O. (Outrageous Homebrewer’s Social Outpost) is the home of the company’s distillery, you owe it to yourself to try the #Vodka, #Gin or #Rum. Each is made from sugar cane and each has a characteristic spiciness. The spirits have

22 | Scottsdale Airpark News April 2017

won numerous gold and silver awards in competitions. The #Vodka shines in the bar’s signature mule, which is made with fresh-juiced ginger instead of ginger beer. O.H.S.O. also serves a tasty peach-infused whiskey, and Lane says a barrel-aged (cabernet) vodka and gin will come online in a few more weeks. The Arcadia Horseradish or Jalapeño vodkas are perfect in a bloody Mary, which is served with a stick of spicy, homemade beef jerky. Lane, a northern Michigan native, likes to make jerky at home. O.H.S.O. has 36 beers on tap, including a core of eight house beers that run the gamut from an easy-drinking golden pilsner to the dusky and dangerous Lost Viking, a 7.6 percent alcohol Baltic porter, which is cold-fermented and as smooth as a lager. The Lost Viking also plays a starring role in the restaurant’s beer-braised short ribs. Wine lovers are well taken care of, too, with 25 vintages available by the glass. Any glass of wine, signature cocktail or

pitcher of Arizona-made beer costs just $7 during happy hour. When hunger pangs strike, $3 small bites are available from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. These include a pretzel and cheese dip, a devilish egg dip, crab wontons, spicy snack mix and Thai peanut hummus. The full lunch and dinner menu is available until midnight. As every regular knows, O.H.S.O. has the dog-friendliest patio around. Once pets and their parents are settled, a hostess scurries over with a bowl of water and a bag of homemade dog treats. Orange market umbrellas are positioned just-so for shade. The nutritious and natural treats are made from leftover beer grains and peanut butter bound together with a little egg and flour. Lane says he and his son used to make 500 treat bags a week at home. Now, it’s a near-full-time job for a baker to make 7,500 bags per week. “For a lot of people, those four-legged furry creatures are their kids,” Lane says, “and we want to make them comfortable. We’re all about being in the comfort zone.” 

icasso paintings. Herman Miller Eames chairs. A Belgian baker’s hutch from the 1800s. When it comes to finding treasures, no one does it better than Darlene Richert. She and her team at Avery Lane have created a bustling center of home design consignment décor in the Airpark that is both world-class and one-of-a-kind. “That’s the real story here,” Richert says, draped across an orange velvet sofa in her showroom. “That the Airpark has become a mecca for home design consignment.” Part of the success of Avery Lane is its location in the heart of ritzy Scottsdale, which attracts affluent home buyers from all over the world. People buy large properties, decorate them with treasures and luxury items, and when they move on, either to another city, or to a smaller home, consignment offers a way to recuperate some of their investment. A quick stroll around Avery Lane gives you a sense of the appeal of a business dedicated to collecting beautiful things. As guests enter, they’re greeted by two enormous bronze lion sculptures purchased by a store owner in the Biltmore area. After a few weeks of the lions standing guard outside her storefront, the property manager said they were a tripping hazard. Too large to fit inside, or even outside, most spaces, the lions are now with Richert at Avery Lane, waiting for someone

new to fall in love with them. “Aren’t they great?” Richert exclaims. As she walks around the showroom pointing out hand-painted console tables and antiques, detailing their particular histories, it’s obvious why people trust her to sell their prized possessions: She loves

them too. And her excitement about each and every piece is infectious. It’s that trust and care she shows each client, and each item, which earned Richert a haul of paintings two-and-a-half years ago that put her on the map and up there with Sothebys and Christie’s auction houses. “I was sitting in my office and I could hear the beep, beep, beep of a truck backing into the loading dock,” Richert says, describing the day an heir to the Hinkley family’s art collection – the same Hinkleys who own the lighting stores – showed up unannounced. “The woman, who I had sold a few antiques for, whips off the cover and there were all these beautiful original paintings.” One of them was a Piccasso. Another turned out to be a work by Roberto Marquez. “These were all paintings that could have hung in the Louvre,” she says. The first call Richert made was to her insurance provider. “I either had to get a rider for half a million or hire armed guards,” she says. Then she got to work trying to figure out the right price for them. She knew she didn’t want to price them so low as to impact the market for an artist. So she researched current auction prices and

applied the same principles to the paintings as she does her home décor and furniture and put them up for sale at about 60 to 70 percent of the going rate. “We definitely want to keep the value in the retail market,” Richert says. She quietly made calls to a few of her best clients and within a month, all the paintings were sold. “Then she gave me four more,” Richert adds. Since then, she’s sold a $30,000 Paul Pletka and other high-end art. So far, she says she’s sold about $250,000 in art at Avery Lane. But while the fine art side of the business is something Richert calls “one of those big surprises,” it’s still her and her team’s ability to curate unusual antiques and rare finds that keeps people coming back. During the recent Phoenix Open, she says the wife of a top-20 golfer came in and spent tens of thousands of dollars in just a few minutes. “She’s crazy about Mackenzie-Childs,” Richert explains, pointing to a Childsdesigned dining set hand-painted in checks, florals and other crazy mismatched designs. “People come from all over the world and say ‘I’ve never seen anything like this.’”

Avery Lane is at the core of several consignment shops in the Scottsdale Airpark area:

Over the decades Richert has called the Airpark home, she has encouraged her friends to move their consignment businesses to the area, too, creating an oasis of similar shops, which all work together to serve designers and home owners across the Valley. If she doesn’t have something a customer wants, Richert will refer them to some of the other stores she works with like Stevan's, Lost & Found, Switch or Airpark Consignment to help them track down their prize. “The Airpark is perfect because

we are minutes from all the marquee events for which Scottsdale is well known,” Richert says about her fondness for the location. “We are two minutes from the TPC course for the Phoenix Open. Barrett Jackson held at WestWorld is probably less than 10 minutes away and it also hosts the world’s largest Arabian Horse Show. And we have three spring training stadiums 15 to 30 minutes away. Not to mention the spectacular resorts and golf courses within minutes of the consignment corridor. It’s paradise to live and work in the Airpark area.” 

Party down at Scottsdale Airpark’s most exclusive event venues By Wynter Holden


cottsdale has a reputation as Arizona’s nightlife capital. From the Scottsdale Arts Center and adjacent contemporary art museum to Fashion Square and the nightclubs of Stetson Drive, there’s always something to do post-9 p.m. Unfortunately, many of the newer buildings are too cookiecutter to be memorable. Head north to Scottsdale Airpark, however, and you’ll find a handful of outof-this-world event spaces your guests will never forget. There were so many untapped opportunities in the North Scottsdale area that local party planner Karen May opened up Venues of North Scottsdale last year

to coordinate events at some of the area’s most unique venues. “They are very luxe, memorable places. No one from the general public has actually been in these spaces before,” May says. From runways to exotic car warehouses, Scottsdale Airpark boasts massive entertaining spaces that mark a departure from ordinary wedding and event venues.

At Lusso Fine Motors, ‘70s-era Chevelles and Camaros are perched alongside tricked-out modern rides.

Speak Softail and Carry a Big Ring: Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale 15656 N. Hayden Road 888-370-1285,

In November 2015, GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons opened the largest U.S. Harley dealership in the world in North Scottsdale. The 150,000-square-foot facility is the adult theme park of the biker world, complete with a tattoo studio, movie theater and wedding chapel. It’s not all leather, chrome and Sailor Jerry inside – and not every visitor is automatically in hog heaven. “We’ve had several events where people had no initial love for motorcycles, but being around bikes helps spark their interest,” events sales Manager Matthew Hepp says. The bulk of the building’s architecture and décor is ultra-modern: concrete patios, steel beams and glass. The elegant chapel is softer and more feminine, with white wainscoting, rustic wooden trusses and pink Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired stained glass panels. Wedding packages start at $399 for the “Shotgun” version and include access to a private dressing

room and the 90-seat chapel. For corporate e v e n t s a n d l a rg e r gatherings, HarleyDavidson of Scottsdale offers their training center, two patios, an outdoor stage and several meeting rooms for private rental. Occasionally, says Hepp, hosts will rent out the entire dealership including the sales floor. Spend enough time eyeing that 2017 Street Rod you’ve been drooling over, and you may come home with a shiny new purchase to explain to the wife.

Not every group can afford the extra luxury of a private ride, but listening to the whir and whoosh of small aircraft on the tarmac provides its own instant mood lift.

Where Parties Take Flight: Airplane Hangars Venues of North Scottsdale 602-296-8000,

Driven to Success: Lusso Fine Motorcars 9024 E. Bahia Drive 480-659-2373,

Originally a flight training school for U.S. Air Force cadets, the single-runway Scottsdale Airport is now home to Signature Flight Support and Landmark Aviation, plus Civil Air Patrol. At night, several of its hangars double as chic party spaces. Unlike the aerodynamic, modern design of nearby Hangar One, these aircraft storage units have been left in their raw states. Think white epoxy floors and trendy rebar with a heavily industrial look. Buildings range in size from around 3,500 to 35,000-square-feet, accommodating up to 1,500 guests; some even come equipped with private jets for a posh photo-op. “For one of our last corporate events, we brought in a 1932 Bomber,” says Karen May, vice president of sales and marketing for Venues of North Scottsdale. “The next day, that company’s whole board of directors went up for a ride in the plane.”

Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale is an adult theme park for bikers.

The Fast and the Furious movie franchise refueled Americans’ love for supercharged classics like the slick black 1970 Dodge Charger, which was tossed out of a Lockheed C-130 Hercules plane above the Sonoran Desert in its seventh installment. At Lusso Fine Motors, ‘70s-era Chevelles and Camaros are perched alongside tricked-out modern rides including a white 2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and a 2012 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet – the latter priced at $105,900. There’s even a 1931 Ford Model A for true collectors. The showroom is available for public events through Venues of North Scottsdale, with gearheads of all ages appreciating the wide range of automobiles on display in Lusso’s ever-changing collection. “People love this venue because it’s not a museum,” May says. “We don’t put up any ropes.” Guests can interact with the vehicles, getting inside to take a closer look April 2017 Scottsdale Airpark News | 27

at the leather interiors and state-of-the-art gadgetry. And it’s not just men who love Lusso. According to May, many women are equally well-versed in automobile history and often drive the decision to host their wedding at the luxury car dealership. “We had a lady in the other day who knew the details of every make and model we have,” May says. “She schooled me on the difference between an Austin-Healey and an Aston Martin.”

and an arsenal to rival a military base. While safety glasses and holsters aren’t exactly standard accessories for a bachelor party or corporate meeting, the club does rent their classrooms and board room out for private events. For smaller gatherings, the conference room runs an affordable $40 per hour, with classrooms that can hold up to 50 people per room available for $250 an hour. You’ll have to spring extra for range time, though according to a facility representative, the Scottsdale Gun Club may cut a break for larger parties. Obviously, this venue isn’t for every crowd. But if you want to take a break from your boring meeting to safely get out your aggression via an AK-47 or Beretta 92FS (aka the U.S. military’s M9), renting a room here is a surefire option.

Accelerate Your Style: Penske Racing Museum 7125 E. Chauncey Lane, 480-538-4444,

If Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Danica Patrick are more your speed, Penske’s collection of retired racecars should spark your engine. More than 20 racecars are on display, from a replica of Roger Penske’s 1963 NASCAR Pontiac Catalina to the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 pace car driven by seven-time Tour de France victor Lance Armstrong at the Indianapolis 500. Many of these cars have made victory laps at the nation’s most prestigious competitions; in its 51-year history, Penske has won more than 400 major races, including 16 Indy 500

titles. The team’s numerous trophies are displayed in the museum’s second-floor café for guests to “ooh” and “ahh” over. The Penske Racing Museum regularly books private events, with parties hosted in a large indoor space separated from the patio by removable glass walls. Catering and entertainment packages are available, and hosts can arrange Land Rover test climbs for adventurous guests.

Ride em’, Cowboy: El Samaritano Equestrian Center 28345 N. 84th Street 602-315-1120,

El Samaritano isn’t your typical horse ranch. The 20-acre facility overlooking Pinnacle Peak is home to stables of Andalusian horses, or PREs (Pura Raza Española), a graceful and sturdy breed known for its prowess at dancing and dressage. Standing an average of 15-and-a-half hands tall, these Spanish beauties are the heart of El Samaritano’s operation, which includes public performances by the Royal Andalusian Riding School. The ranch’s 29,000-square-foot covered facility is large enough to accommodate up to 2,500 guests, with picturesque desert views appropriate for themes that range from campfire cookout to fancy wine dinners. May’s company coordinates modern niceties such as table linens, grub and entertainment, while the venue provides a picturesque backdrop straight out of a Clint

Eastwood flick. “A lot of people still think this is the Wild West. They want the gorgeous desert scenery shown in old movies,” she says. El Samaritano offers views of the area’s sherbet sunsets and dusty sagebrush landscape, minus the staged cowboy hokeyness of other Western venues. With more than 55,000 employees and 2,600 acres of land, Scottsdale Airpark is the largest commercial center in the state of Arizona. It’s attracted the likes of GoDaddy billionaire Bob Parsons – who plans to build a new restaurant and retail hub at the former site of his massive Harley Dealership – as well as first-class resorts. Why go traditional, however, when you

can rent an entire airplane hangar or take a selfie behind the wheel of an Aston Martin 2008 roadster? “These venues are a great alternative to pricey resorts,” May says. “There’s no foot traffic, no publicity. You can just go off and have fun in an interesting place.” Basically, CEOs and other company bigwigs won’t have to deal with looky-loos snapping party pics and tweeting them for the world to see. All-inclusive packages can run from $25,000 upwards of a quartermillion dollars through Venues of North Scottsdale. But for many of Scottsdale’s elite, the look on their guests’ faces when they see a Model T or a commercial jet in arm’s reach is priceless.  April 2017 Scottsdale Airpark News | 29

Peer inside the unseen (for now) collection at the Musical Instrument Museum


h e M I M ( M u s i c a l I n s t ru m e n t Museum), Scottsdale’s internationally renowned home to instruments from around the globe, is like an iceberg. What you see when you stroll for three or four hours among the exhibitions, viewing bagpipes and shakuhachi and pow wow drums, is just the tip. “Below” – tucked away, out of sight – is a collection of nearly 10,000 instruments, augmenting the 6,500-plus items already displayed. “Thousands of items are in the wings, not yet on display but ready to go,” explains Rich Walter, the MIM’s curator for instruments from U.S. and Canada since 2014. Of course, these hidden treasures must be stored. So where are these thousands of trumpets and drums and fiddles and whatnot kept, as they await their chance to leap into museum prominence? “Right from the get-go, this facility was designed so that all the work could be done on site, including all the conservation, restoration, design and mount-making, so the storage is on site as well,” Walter says. The storage room, tucked neatly to the rear and left of the Conservation Lab, is a cavernous space filled with moveable shelving. Walk up and down any aisle and you will find drums of every size, shape and mode of resonance; wildly decorated guitars; a rare keyed bugle in perfect shape; a “marching baritone horn” that slings around the neck (a design quickly abandoned); and everything else you might imagine, from a magnificent sitar to some old-style screw-tuned timpani

By Kenneth LaFave drums to a row of violins and violas. Generally, the instruments on these shelves stand out for some unusual physical features, but once in a while you see a completely ordinary piece, like the simple clarinet lying unpretentiously on a low shelf. “That was Buddy DeFranco’s clarinet,” Walter says, explaining why the otherwise unremarkable instrument is there. Benny Goodman’s clarinet is already on display in the museum, and at some point the instruments belonging to the Jazz Age greats will switch places. The MIM, for those who haven’t yet discovered it, is the world’s best-regarded musical instrument museum, an imposing structure that houses galleries representing the musical instruments of every nation on Earth, from Afghanistan to Zambia. Each gallery space hosts an ensemble of instruments native to that country, with an accompanying video that allows the viewer to hear what the instruments sound like. The items currently on display at the MIM rotate with those in storage, according to what new instruments come into the MIM’s possession, or what new spaces open among the galleries for myriad reasons, or what new ways of telling a country’s musical story pop into a curator’s head. “Things change all the time, with some changes very subtle and others quite dramatic. We’re in a constant process of re-

MIM curator Dr. Rich Walter, inspecting a rare liuto moderno built in 1905 and originally used in a San Francisco mandolin orchestra

evaluating all the gallery spaces, and the changes are made based on our having that deep collection at our disposal. For every nation or genre, there are a variety of ways to create a story and use a range of instruments to create an ensemble or iconic sound,” Walter says. When the MIM opened in 2010, a staff of more than 100 consultants


chose the initial instruments for display. With time to obtain new examples, and to restore instruments previously not shown because of damage, and to rethink the size and content of the galleries, the MIM has morphed, and continues to do so. If you go twice a year, you probably see two quite different museums. One major example of dramatic change in a gallery space came last year, when Cuba was recognized by the United States and the embargo against that country was dropped. Prior to that, Cuba had occupied one of the smaller gallery spaces in the Latin American section at the museum. Afterward, MIM curators were free to investigate and obtain a wider variety of native Cuban instruments, which consequently doubled the size of the Cuba gallery. Another recent change came to the Haiti gallery, which expanded when a certain kind of drum native to Haiti, but not previously in the MIM’s possession, was obtained. The find started a chain reaction that brought other instruments up from the collection to augment and enlarge the display. In some cases, changes can link to certain musicians or groups associated with the instrument. “We have a display called The Mandolin Orchestra. These were really popular in the U.S.A. in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We were representing that very effectively, but then we had a donation of a rare, ten-string, cello-register instrument called the ‘liuto moderno’ that had been commissioned by the director of the San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra for one of the members of his ensemble,” Wa l t e r s s a y s . “About the

The instruments included in the Dragons and Vines exhibition feature handcrafted inlaid artwork created from materials including abalone shell, motherof-pearl, gold, copper, wood and others.

same time, a donation came in of a 1920s Gibson mandolin, and so we knew we had the possibility of changing the story and the display. We went about finding a couple other objects to complement those, and finally we have a whole new collection. We had a meeting just the other day to start redesigning the new installation.” Then there was the slide trumpet given by a donor, an instrument that at first seemed no more or less interesting than other slide trumpets, until it was discovered that its former owner was one of the unusual instrument’s best-known virtuosi. A lot of the collection comes from the generosity of donors who want their instruments to find a home that has meaning. Unfortunately, the MIM has to be picky about what it accepts. As Walter puts it, “We can’t take everybody’s upright piano.”

Below the tip of the iceberg that exhibits in the galleries, and below even the 10,000 instruments in storage, is a third level of hidden treasure: the world. The MIM’s prestige invites loans from the Smithsonian, from a sister museum in Brussels, and from private collectors everywhere. The latter made possible the MIM’s latest featured exhibition, Dragons and Vines (see sidebar). Given the ability to draw on collections worldwide, it is doubtful that the backstage collection will grow terribly much in coming years. Numbers, anyway, were never the museum’s goal. “Unlike places that pride themselves on having a huge collection as a repository, we don’t see ourselves that way. Our purpose is to own a collection that allows us to present the radical diversity of music around the globe. Everything we do serves that goal.” 

Tradition meets technology in MIM’s Dragons and Vines Guitars should be seen as well as heard. That’s the idea behind Dragons and Vines: Inlaid Guitar Masterpieces, a special exhibition at the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). The one-of-a-kind show opened in November 2016 and will continue through the summer. “You won’t see these instruments on stage. In fact, they’re rarely seen at all,” says Colin Pearson, co-curator of the unique display of more than 30 instruments. The MIM, the planet’s most respected museum of musical instruments, is the only venue in the world to host Dragons and Vines. The instruments – mostly guitars, but also including some banjos and a single ukulele – feature handcrafted inlaid artwork created from materials including abalone shell, mother-of-pearl, gold, copper, wood and others. “This exhibition shows the current state of inlay art. The cutting edge of inlay art in the last few decades has pushed further forward than ever,” Pearson says. It’s presented in partnership with the Maryland-based inlay company Pearl Works, with the majority of the pieces coming from the private collection of Larry Sifel (1948-2006), the company’s founder. An ancient art going back centuries, the inlaying of stringed instruments with designs made of shell and other materials has leapt forward thanks to contemporary technological advances. This has affected both the method of inlay and the materials used. “By using CNC (computer numerically controlled) routers, a very complex program cuts the shells and the cavities they are laid into,” making possible designs

of extremely precise detail, Pearson says. This doesn’t mean the artisan has been eclipsed by digital technology. The creative aspect still requires a human being with vision and imagination. “People still have to create the design. It’s up to each individual artist to each utilize the unique pieces of shell,” Pearson points out. The name of the exhibition reflects the two most common design motifs. “The vine is the most traditional and historic. For centuries the vine pattern has shown up on string instruments. The dragons really represent the innovations of the last few decades. We’re featuring the entire series of eight ‘Dragon Guitars’ made by PRS Guitars since 1992.” Dragons and Vines: Inlaid Guitar Masterpieces runs through August, 2017, at the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM), 4725 E. Mayo Blvd., at the corner of Tatum and Mayo, just south of Loop 101. Admission: $10 for the exhibition only, or $7 when purchased with general museum admission to the MIM.

An unidentified Syrian woman sells desserts she made at home during one of the bake sales Jakwani has organized throughout the Valley.

Baking a Difference Recalling the help her refugee father received, Scottsdale woman pays it forward By Paul Maryniak / Photos by Dianne Ross


an Jakwani was only about 6 years old when her mother grimly visited the battlefields of South Vietnam in search of her father’s body. For nearly 10 years, the Scottsdale woman and her mother thought his effort to slip out of Vietnam and get to America had ended somewhere on those killing fields. Driven partly by that memory and what really happened to her father, Jakwani now helps the refugees of another war-torn part of the world. As the outreach coordinator for the Islamic Center of Northeast Valley, the mother of two helps refugees from Syria, Iraq and other parts of the violence-ravaged Middle East find their bearings in a strange new land. “My father always reminded us of when he first came to the United States, and how he worked every job he could to

rebuild his life for us,” Jakwani says. “But he said he wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help he got from Americans.” Jakwani’s father fled Vietnam in 1975 because he had served in the South Vietnamese Army; the North Vietnamese were moving against those who had helped America wage its long campaign there. They didn’t hear from him for several years, until they finally received a letter he had smuggled to them through a relative in France. It took several more years for U.S.Vietnam relations to normalize to the point where Jakwani, her mother and three siblings could reunite with him in Houston. Throughout that time, Jakwani and her family relied solely on smuggled letters to maintain contact with her father. Though Jakwani stresses she herself

was not a refugee, her father’s struggles to create a new life in America left a deep impression. Her father had been a law student in Vietnam and mastered English there. When he got to Houston, she says, “He worked on whatever job the resettlement agency offered him.” He also had an American sponsor who showed him the ropes of living in the United States, whether it involved how to get a bus and get around or find an apartment. “He always wrote us,” Jakwani recalled. After the family reunited in Houston, Jakwani, her sister and two brothers went to school and eventually started successful jobs. Jakwani moved to Scottsdale nine years ago, and is a full-time mom with a 14-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter. “All of us are successful,” she says of her family. “We’re grateful for what we have.” That gratitude motivated her most recent project on behalf of Middle Eastern refugees. Jakwani has organized several dozen Syrian women who bake desserts and sell them at special bake sales hosted by churches throughout the Valley. Their first sale in February at Dayspring United Methodist Church in Tempe drew nearly 1,000 people and they sold out in two hours. “People were lined up in the rain, and we sold out faster than we expected,” Jakwani says. “We had to apologize because so many customers left empty-handed.” The Valley group was inspired by a similar program Syrian women refugees have been conducting in Tucson, Jakwani said. Other organizers are Sadia Zubairi, Shy Khan, Lama Hiraky, Nancy Speidal and Tracy Nishida. “All of us belong to the Syrian Refugee Connection Facebook group, consisting of volunteers from different backgrounds and faiths coming together to help refugees rebuild their lives,” Jakwani says. “The bake sale is entirely a humanitarian effort by volunteers of different backgrounds and faiths who are actively assisting refugees in Arizona.” All proceeds from the bake sales go directly to the bakers’ families, who often are subsisting on low wages earned by their husbands. Jakwani says the sales accomplish two other purposes – introducing the refugees and the community to each other. “It’s like a cultural exchange,” she says. “The community gets to learn about the refugees and the refugees meet their new neighbors.” The bake sale is a more comfortable way for the women to reach out, Jakwani says. “Many of the Syrian women are great bakers,” she explains. “When people come over, they typically welcome their guests with baked goods.” Each woman bakes in her own kitchen, “where they feel more comfortable,” Jakwani says. “Syrian women like to work out of their home and baking is one of their passions.” They also have been trained by a Tempe baker and have their county health department food handler licenses. The Tempe baker trained the original group of bakers, and they in turn have trained other women. The bakers wear gloves, so volunteers handle cash. Translators are at each baker’s station to assist the interaction between the bakers and their customers. Each woman will bake around 100 items of their specialty, which they will sell for 50 cents to $1. They all will have boxes for people who want to buy more than one or two and take them home. Jakwani says she and other organizers are negotiating with several food stores and farmers’ markets to widen the distribution of their products. “The women are super-excited,” she says. “We’re happy about the way it is going so far. We’re working on helping them and want them and their new American neighbors to get to know each other as well.” 

Michael Ledner watches a guest have a good time at the goat farm.


Q: Does frequent dry cleaning shorten the life of a garment?




Scottsdale couple creates a Nubian oasis in the Valley Story and photos by Mike Butler


row. Cook. Create. Gather. These are the words that Lylah Ledner lives by at The Simple Farm in North Scottsdale, but they go even deeper than that. “That’s who I am,” she says. Ledner wasn’t so sure of herself or what she was getting into eight years ago when her husband, Michael, approached her with a scheme to start a community garden. He had just watched a short film called The Homegrown Revolution, which documented how the Dervaes family turned a tiny plot in downtown Pasadena into the successful Urban Homestead. “It inspired me,” Michael says. “I was 55 and had never grown anything in my life. I had to get started.” You could say it was a calling, just like Michael was called to be a pastor earlier in life. Seventeen years ago, he persuaded his small congregation to buy a three-acre horse property at 9080 E. Cactus Road. They would build a proper church and grow the membership. They had an architect draw up plans. Those ambitions, however, stirred cognitive

A: On the contrary, frequent cleaning prolongs the life of a garment. Not only do stains set with age, making the garment unwearable, but groundin dirt and soil act as an abrasive, like sandpaper, causing rapid wear of fibers. Also, insects are attracted to soils such as food, beverages, feces, perspiration, and oils from hair on the clothes and will cause further damage. - Donn C. Frye, CEO

and spiritual dissonance as the years went by. “That wasn’t who we were,” Michael explains. “It didn’t feel like us. Something else was supposed to happen here.” That something else was The Simple Farm. Today, the 15-20 members of the Desert Streams Chapel very happily gather in the farm’s threecar garage, as Nubian goats romp in a nearby pasture and flowers planted in tidy beds stretch toward the sun. The farm wasn’t much to look at when the Ledners first started working it. Lylah says there were a couple of pine trees, an African sumac and a chaparral bush. They planted 150 fruit and nut trees and mesquite trees for shade. Produce from the farm supports 30 member families. Many hopefuls are on a long waiting list. Fortunately, there’s always a little extra, which is offered at the Thursday Farm Shop. Except for the third Thursday of the month, an added attraction of the weekly market is that Laura Koch of Picket Fence Pastries is in attendance. Guests also like the lovely, handcrafted

cutting boards, French rolling pins and other items from the Gray Goose Woodshop, all made from reclaimed wood by Hayden LeRoy, his wife, and their six kids. The growing operation is managed by Joy Hubbard, who found a new calling herself after being laid off as a paralegal a few years ago. That allows the Ledners to concentrate on the goats – and the delicious caramels made from their milk. The goats forage on pasture land and berry bushes, with regular servings of alfalfa and grains. They also snack on pomegranate, apples, figs and other fruits of the farm. Caramel sales turned out to be a surprising annuity for the Ledners. People mail-order them from all over. Locally, the treats are available at the Thursday market, The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch and a growing list of coffee and gourmet shops. Kitchen West executive chef Rick Dupere is perhaps The Simple Farm’s biggest fan. He has been hosting monthly, sold-out farm-totable al fresco dinners at the farm since last October. In March, he manned the farm’s two outdoor brick ovens for the first of many pizza suppers. Lylah says the greatest reward of The Simple Farm has been making connections and friends with so many visitors. It means a lot to her and Michael when they see a first-time guest get a little choked up by the beauty and tranquility of the place. “I think it reminds a lot of people of growing up,” she says. “They get closer to the earth. They slow down.”


The Simple Farm is only open on Thursday mornings, from 9 to 11:30. It’s a busy working farm and impromptu visits are discouraged. Those who do make appearances are turned away or handed a shovel and put to work, depending on owner Lylah Ledner’s mood at the time. She actually did that to a physician/subscriber who was late for a pickup one day. He had waited so long for a membership and didn’t want to jeopardize it, so he gladly rolled up his sleeves and did some chores. The Thursday market will cease sometime in June, depending on the heat, and start up again in late September/early October. Visit for the latest information. 

n a sunny Tuesday afternoon in March, pilot Steve Allen sits at a table in the atrium of Sedona Airport, sipping coffee from a Styrofoam cup, mingling with airport staff and other pilots, and cracking jokes. “Jacob is the airport coordinator,” he says, pointing to the young man sitting behind the counter, typing on a keyboard while gripping a phone between his ear and shoulder. “He’s the only one who can give you a permit to fly into the vortex.” Allen is of course referring to Sedona’s famous “crystal vortexes,” believed by some to be a center of spiritual energy and a popular spot for guided tours by New Age gurus. But he’s kidding – there’s no permit for flying into the vortices, whether you’re piloting a plane or a U.F.O. (the latter is another popular motif around Sedona, embodied in the Red Planet Diner and alien statues standing sentinel in shops). He’s more earnest

when talking about Sedona Airport, which he says has the second-lowest fuel prices at the moment (behind Holbrook Municipal Airport) and is “really a very nice airport.” He should know. The current Air Operations Program Manager for the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, Allen’s spent his entire career in the air and flown all over Arizona. He had a day off and flew here today “just to hang out” at the airport, he says, before admitting airport coordinator Jacob is his nephew, Jacob Allen. “I wish you wouldn’t let that get around,” Jacob jokes. That kind of breezy, small-town vibe permeates Sedona Airport. Spanning 220 acres with one runway and a helipad, the airport is perched atop a high mesa overlooking most of Sedona and is known as a prime spot for watching sunsets. The whole place is really designed like a big bowl of sky eye-candy,

with paintings of planes and framed photos of Sedona’s scenic landscapes. The cocktail menu includes cleverly named concoctions like the “Jet Fuel Mule” and “Propeller Punch.” There are no exotic surprises on the food menu – it’s mostly burgers, sandwiches and some fish entrees. A worthy epicurean excursion is the “Aviation Classic $100” Hamburger, which actually costs just $14 (before plane fuel and taxes, that is). The halfpound Angus burger patty boasts a flavorful garlic seasoning, and because it’s such a big hunk of beef slathered in white cheddar cheese and drenched in chipotle cream, it’s very much a knife-and-fork situation.

World War I had an impact on Scottsdale By Joan Fudala


ne hundred years ago this month, the U.S. declared war on Germany, entering the Great War (World War I) that had been raging in Europe since 1914. Throughout the next 18 months – until the centennial of the Armistice which occurred on November 11, 1918 – we’ll be commemorating this milestone in U.S. and world history. Although it took place thousands of miles and an ocean away from Scottsdale, the war had an immediate and lasting impact on the small, unincorporated farming town. Here’s a glimpse of the World War I era in Scottsdale: When war broke out in Europe on July 28, 1914, Scottsdale had a population of less than 1,000, was unincorporated (hence no city government or actual town boundaries), had a farming- and ranching-based economy, one school, no free-standing

churches and one paved street. Businesses in 1914 included Brown’s general store, Cavalliere’s blacksmith shop, Graves Guest Ranch, the Ingleside Inn and golf course, Johnny Rose’s pool hall, Hans and Mary Weaver’s sanitorium, Marjorie Thomas’ art studio… and not much else. There were a few cars, but horses were still the main form of transportation and farm operation. As imported cotton became scarce due to war embargoes, the U.S. became more important as a source of cotton – an essential war-time commodity. The Salt River Valley climate is well-suited to grow Egyptian cotton, and local farmers began planting a similar strain, known as Pima cotton. By the time the U.S. entered the Great War, cotton had become Scottsdale’s key economic engine. In 1914, U.S. Vice President Thomas Mar…continued on page 42

Marshall served as the U.S. Vice President to Woodrow Wilson from 19131921, bringing national attention to Scottsdale, particularly during the couple’s frequent stays. He was known as a humorous, popular and patriotic speaker. Marshall Way in downtown Scottsdale honors his memory. In March 1916, Mexican revolutionary general Francisco “Pancho” Villa and his guerilla raiders crossed the U.S. border at Columbus, New Mexico, killing 17 Americans.

The American Legion. Tenth U.S. Cavalry from Fort Huachuca, Arizona was sent to Douglas to patrol the Arizona-Mexico border. Soon after, General Pershing was named commander of the American Expeditionary Force and sent to France when the U.S. entered World War I. After the war, Pershing often visited Arizona. After years of isolation, several incidents provoked the U.S. into declaring war on Germany and its allies on April 6, 1917. One of the tipping points involved Arizona – it was discovered that Germany had promised Mexico that if it allied with Germany, and if Germany won the war, Arizona and other territory ceded to the U.S. by Mexico would be returned to Mexico. This catalyst of war is known as “The Zimmerman Telegram,” referring to the secret communication that was intercepted, outlining the plan. Within two weeks of the declaration of war, Arizona Governor Thomas Campbell established the Arizona Council of Defense, a civilian leadership group that coordinated the protection of life and property and the conservation of resources throughout the state and in support of the war effort. On May 18, 1917, Congress passed the U.S. Selective Service Act. It enabled a draft of men for service in the armed forces. The first draft registration took place in June 1917 and required all men between the ages of 21 and 30 to register. The Arizona Republican published lists of those who registered, those who

were exempted and those referred to as “slackers,” or those who failed to show up to register. It also carried news of draftees leaving for training. During the summer of 1917, local boys were encouraged to join the Boys Working Reserve. This national program hired boys ages 16 to 21 to provide labor that increased agricultural production and took the place of men who had been drafted into the armed services for war duty. One of the two area Boys Reserve Camps was located south of the Scottsdale town site and near Papago Park. Boys helped harvest cotton and other crops for Scottsdale-area farmers. Cotton farmers also sponsored families to immigrate from Mexico to work in the cotton fields around Scottsdale in order to meet war-time production demands. Liberty Loan rallies took place throughout the Valley and in Scottsdale during the fall of 1917. Groups like Scottsdale’s Farm Improvement Bureau voted to buy Liberty bonds; individuals and businesses also supported the Liberty bond program. Scottsdale, as well as the nation, celebrated the end of the war on November 11, 1918. Some 50,000 Americans were killed, 321 of those from Arizona.

Cotton continued to be a prime economic driver for Scottsdale due to its wartime boom. E.O. Brown and partners opened the town’s first cotton gin on Second Street circa 1920, and also sponsored the Corral family (of Los Olivos fame) to immigrate to Scottsdale in 1919 to work on Brown’s cotton farm (now the location of HonorHealth’s Osborn campus). After World War I, Scottsdale experienced a minor business and population growth spurt that lasted through the 1920s and up to the start of the Great Depression.

Proof Canteen’s new menu goes green but keeps it meaty By Niki D’Andrea


ouldn’t it be great to eat your way across the U.S.A. without leaving Scottsdale? Thanks to Proof Canteen, you can. The menu at this upscale casual restaurant just got a makeover for spring, and the concept is “a food-based road trip across America,” according to Executive Sous Chef Joey Cavaretta. There’s a time-capsule vibe to Proof, too. The environs resemble a stop along Route 66 in its glory days – wood-paneling and vintage sign reproductions give the bright and airy restaurant a soda jerk diner vibe, which is bolstered by a 1950s-style ice cream bar and a shuffleboard table. Menu books are bound in repurposed license plates. But the throwback tropes are balanced by

hip, modern details. The music emanating from the speakers could skew classic rock and blues one day (Aerosmith, Tom Petty, B.B. King) and edgy alternative the next (The Black Keys, Queens of the Stone Age). Despite being embedded in one of the most luxurious resorts in the Valley, the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, Proof is approachable and affordable – and downright hip, Cavaretta says. Especially on Friday nights, when dinner comes with a side of live music and smokehouse specials (see sidebar). “Proof really tries to change how people conceptualize the Four Seasons,” says Executive Chef Chuck Kazmer, who took the reins of the resort’s restaurants in January

Every Friday night from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., Proof goes up in smokers – meat smokers, that is. Along with sous chefs Joey Cavaretti and Dell Morris, Executive Chef Chuck Kazmer gives guests a taste of his Texas foodie roots with offerings like smoked beef brisket, St. Louis-style ribs, half chickens and bone-in pork loin – all cooked low and slow to toothsome perfection, and served with sides such as house-made kombucha apple fennel slaw and warm baby red potato salad. Specials change weekly, and diners get the entrée and two sides for $28. A custom pie is paired with each special for an additional $11, and a Proof Manhattan can be had for $16. The stunning sunset views of Crescent Mountain and Pinnacle Peak are free.



spring peas in a morel mushroom cream, topped with charred Cipollini onion and accompanied by a side of baked potato fries. Cavaretta remembers a resort guest from New York, who was especially pleased with Proof’s Buffalo wings, which are prepared using chicken tulips before being slathered in one of three sauces (Carolina BBQ, bourbon maple or hot ‘n’ spicy). “The skin shrinks on the bone, and it leaves a little lollipop,” the chef says. Another jaw-droppingly good appetizer is the bowl of buttery, croissant-like pretzel knots, a popular staple of Proof’s


after a stretch at the Four Seasons Hotel Amman in Jordan. “People can come here in T-shirts, shorts, golf clothes. That’s really the message – we’re not stuffy and overbearing.” But they will stuff you. Cavaretta’s crossed the country multiple times from Phoenix to his hometown of Buffalo, New York and back, stopping at eateries along the way for inspiration, and putting his own spin on Americana classics like poke, chicken and waffles, and clam chowder. Being from the Empire State, Cavaretta takes particular pride in his smoked New York strip steak – a delectable, thick cut with a scrumptious seasoned char around the edges that’s served over fresh

Both the vodka and bourbon were made stateside – like everything on Proof’s list of libations. “Our entire beverage menu is American,” Cavaretta says. “All of our beers, our wine, our hard liquors – are made in America.” The point is to drive all aesthetic toward the American road-trip culinary tale. As Executive Chef Kazmer says, “It creates the story.” 

Proof Canteen at Four Seasons – Troon North

…continued from page 47 menu since the canteen opened five years ago. If you’re going for the greens but have a carnivorous bent, the duck pastrami salad could change your life – or at least change your opinion of duck. The marathon mastication usually required to swallow a bite of the tough-fleshed waterfowl is a non-factor here: This duck, sliced super thin and cured in-house with pastrami spices, melts on the tongue. The flavor plays well with the frilly mustard greens, spiced pecans, pungent blue cheese, watermelon and vanilla-bourbon vinaigrette. Vegetarians will fare better at breakfast or brunch, which features innovative meat-free delights like heritage grain and berry bowls, and a crêpe stuffed with fried cauliflower, charred corn, black beans and roasted poblano, served with a tangerine barbecue sauce and tomatillo pico de gallo. “We always want to make sure we have inventive, fun options for vegetarians,” Cavaretta says. “We wanted to make something for people who usually have to order pasta or risotto. They’re kind of over it.” And the desserts? Talk about a sugar rush! Executive Pastry Chef Lance Whipple’s elaboratelooking creations double as conversation starters. Fellow diners will invariably ask “What is that?” when they see something like the Big Island – a long, boat-like dish with pineapple chunks bobbing in a sea of coconut rum ice cream and topped with a dried pineapple slice – or the salted caramel pretzel cake hit your table. Those who like to wash down their meals with something spirited will appreciate the extensive wine, beer and cocktail menus. Proof’s signature drink is the Proof Sangria – and if you think it

What’s Cooking With JAN D’ATRI

Pretzel bites for National Soft Pretzel Month


pril is National Soft Pretzel Month! That’s according to and I’m not about to dispute it. I will use any excuse possible to indulge – especially when they’re pretzel bites! See, pretzels and I go way back. I can’t tell you how many times pretzels got me through a stressful situation. I remember having a bag of pretzels at my desk daily as I was starting my television anchoring career. Rush hour traffic? A bag of pretzels helped me munch away the tension. I was such a pretzel addict that when Rold Gold

50 | Scottsdale Airpark News April 2017

Pretzels changed their recipe from the regular size to a thinner version, I penned a letter to the president of the company begging him to reconsider. Now that’s an addiction gone too far. I’d gone off the deep end. Then there’s the soft pretzel. (That’s a whole different story for another day.) Those are a much harder habit to break, so I just quit trying. Instead, I decided to hunt for a great recipe because driving to the mall every few days for a soft pretzel was just not an option. I think I finally found a bite-size bonanza!

Soft Pretzel Bites Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups warm water 1 teaspoon honey or sugar 1 package active dry yeast 2 cups all purpose flour 2 1/2 cups bread flour 1 tablespoon kosher salt 6 tablespoons melted butter 5 cups water 1/3 cup baking soda 1 egg yolk 1 tablespoon water Pretzel salt


Make the dough. Place warm water in a small bowl. Add honey or sugar and stir. Sprinkle in yeast and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups all purpose flour, 2 cups bread flour, melted butter and salt. Add yeast and knead, using a dough hook attachment. If dough is sticky, add an additional 1/2 cup of bread flour. Knead for 5 minutes, or until the dough forms a smooth ball. Place dough in a large bowl coated with butter. Cover with plastic wrap or towel

and let rise until double in size, about one hour. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 420 degrees. Place dough on a clean work surface. (Do not flour surface.) Cut dough into 6-8 sections and roll the dough to form long ropes. Using a knife, cut the ropes into 1 and 1/2 inch pieces. Make the egg wash by mixing together water and egg yolk. Have pastry b ru s h , s l o t t e d s p o o n , pretzel salt, kitchen scissors, and baking sheet ready. Bring 5 cups of water to boil. Add baking soda. (Do not skip the baking soda step. This is what gives the pretzel its unique taste and appearance.) Put about 6-7 pieces of pretzel dough into the simmering solution and cook for 30 seconds. Remove pieces with slotted spoon and place them on baking sheet. Continue with remaining dough. Brush each piece with egg wash, sprinkle with salt and using scissors, cut a cross


into the top of each pretzel piece. Gently transfer pieces onto a clean baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 420 degrees for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown. 

Satisfaction Everyone in the Airpark can find what they need at Chloe’s Corner By Becky Bracken / Photos by Blake Bonillas


he Scottsdale Airpark is home to a wide mix of people: leisure-loving retirees, the young and hip, businesstypes and, of course, sun-seeking tourists. They all have different needs, speeds and tastes, but one local spot specializes in serving all of them with a smile. Yes, Chloe’s Corner is more than just the best place to score a 50-cent cup of killer coffee; it’s where the whole neighborhood comes to meet, eat and dash. Ashly Young, born and raised in the Valley, is the perfect face for the bustling storefront. Part convenience store, and part what Young refers to as a “non-greasy diner,” Chloe’s Corner serves the needs of the community simply and beautifully. Young takes plenty of pride in that fact. She bought the place six years ago from Fox Restaurant Concepts, where she spent years working and honing her skills after attending culinary school in San Francisco. Sam Fox approached her with the idea of buying what was then known as The Counter and taking it to the next level. After time and many conversations, Young says, she took on the challenge. Chloe’s Corner serves its own special blend of teas and coffee (supplied by another Airpark business, Passport Coffee & Tea), which famously sells for just 50 cents. In the mornings, Chloe’s staff serves fluffy, steaming egg sandwiches and decadent pastries. And for lunch, regulars belly up to the counter to drench classic gooey grilled cheese sandwiches in luscious, piping hot bowls of Chloe’s signature tomato soup. During warmer months, Young says the

the residents of the Kierland condos. “Regina likes this kind of wine, another guy likes his beer, so we make sure to have that in stock,” Young says. There are the tourists who stay at the Westin Kierland who rely on Chloe’s coffee and to-go food options to fuel up for vacation fun. Employees working at Kierland rely on Chloe’s to keep going until quitting time. And of course, there are shoppers making pit-stops between sales. “They all get taken care of at Chloe’s,” Young says with a smile. Chloe’s customers all live vastly different lives in and around the Airpark, but this small, bright, bustling counter, with a vibe straight out of Brooklyn, is where they intersect daily. Besides, a good cup of coffee for just 50 cents is worth a return visit or two. 

Shrimp aguilachiles is a “fork-and-chip” dish.


Southwestern Spin Asadero Cocina + Cantina brings fresh flavors to Scottsdale By Niki D’Andrea


on Molonich, Executive Chef at Asadero Cocina + Cantina, is inspired by the Mexican food in Arizona. Ohio-raised Molonich has lived here for 20 years, and Southwestern flavors shine through on his menu, which he says has “a lot of Latino influence from Veracruz to Sinaloa” and more. Located in the former En Fuego space at the Hilton DoubleTree Resort, Asadero is part of a recent $12 million renovation, but some fan favorites remain – like the tongue-tingling, jalapeño-baconwrapped shrimp, which has been on the menu in some form at least 14 years and

is a popular go-to item for locals, and a popular to-go item for guests. “People will say ‘Give me two orders of baconwrapped shrimp – I’ll be back after I drop off my luggage,’” general manager Doug Heaton says. Cocktails are crafted in mad-scientist, break-out-the-beakers fashion by mixologists Jessica Barry and Danielle Dominguez. Their drinks taste deceptively smooth and lack the back-of-the-throat alcohol-burn that warns the imbiber of its potency. Using homemade purees and a garden-to-glass approach, Barry and Dominguez have concocted spirited

potions such as The Saguaro (house-infused jasmine gin, lemon juice, honey, water, club soda, and frothy egg white garnished with thyme). But the real kick in the tonsils in the Blackberry Serrano Margarita, with Hornitos Reposado Tequila, Grand Marnier, house-made blackberry serrano puree and margarita mix, and fresh-squeezed citrus, garnished with half a jalapeño and with a glass rim seasoned with an incendiary sriracha salt. Diners will need several bites of Molonich’s cuisine to quench the fire. While Molonich gives standards a spin, he’s also introduced numerous new appetizers: piquant lamb meatballs, avocado toast (on locally made Noble Bread), a pitch-perfect hummus plate punctuated with zesty cherry tomatoes, and shrimp aguachiles. The latter plate, which Molonich aptly describes as a “fork-and-chip dish,” consists of chile- and lime- marinated shrimp, coriander, avocado and shaved red onion, to be scooped up in generous, juicy heaps on warm, house-made corn tortilla chips. Molonich’s lamb meatballs (which he calls “kind of fun”) are tender, toothsome, and topped with a spicy marinara sauce and pungent crumbles of goat cheese. Among the entrées, scallop and shrimp Veracruz with sweet pea risotto satisfies lighter “surf” appetites, while “turf” fans can tuck into braised short rib in red wine sauce with green chili mac and cheese and broccolini. The kitchen also takes roasted chicken breast to the next level by bathing it in a beer molasses sauce. Of the renovated menu, Molonich says, “I’m really happy with all these dishes.” So are we, Chef. 

Nussbaum Gillis & Dinner support Genocide Awareness Week


By Randy Nussbaum “This year is very special because it’s our fifth annual Genocide Awareness Week and that’s a very significant milestone,” said John Liffiton, professor and co-founder of Genocide Awareness Week at SCC. “We learn something each year and keep improving to give those who attend an experience that will help them grow in their knowledge and understanding of genocide and how to prevent these atrocities. “We say ‘never forget’ and ‘never again’ but we need to keep striving for that,” Liffiton said. “Some people still have the idea that this happened 80 years ago only. That’s not the case. It continues to happen today.” A new topic and focus added this year is the 1936 Olympics, with lectures, a panel discussion and an exhibit that will be on display for the entire week. Another exhibit, Genocides of the 20th Century, is on display in the Student Center lobby. The traveling exhibit delves deeply into the Armenian mass murders, which occurred in the early part of the century, the Holocaust perpetrated by Nazi Germany in the 1930s through the 1940s, and the Rwandan genocide in the mid-1990s. It features photos, archives and

Knoblauch’s talk is scheduled for opening day, April 17, at 10:30 a.m., following a presentation on Native American Genocide at 9 a.m. by Dr. Jaakko Puisto, a history professor with Scottsdale Community College.

Because I work exclusively for commercial tenants and buyers my clients get three things unavailable elsewhere: INFORMATION: I provide my clients with complete information

about every available space and property, including asking prices, and the details of similar transactions I have negotiated. Knowing what others paid and the concessions extracted is invaluable negotiating currency and serves to level the playing field.

INTELLIGENCE: Having over 2,700 commercial transactions

That’s because most real estate transactions include a commission which is split between the agents that represent each “side” of the transaction.

Are you missing out by not living like a tourist?


By Laura McMurchie

hese days, we in the tourism industry constantly hear the phrase “Live like a local.” More and more, travelers are forgoing tourist traps and seeking out little-known spots beloved by locals. Ahead of their vacations, they spend hours poring over Yelp reviews and articles online to track down those hidden nuggets. Here in Scottsdale, locals have plenty to love. Yet we can take these special spots – our independently-owned restaurants, our innovative cocktail bars – for granted. We can forget to take advantage of our resort destination and all its world-class amenities. Are locals missing out by not living like tourists? As the vice president of communications for Experience Scottsdale, I spend my days informing national and international media about Scottsdale’s world-class offerings. To garner even more authentic media coverage, Experience Scottsdale hosts travel journalists so they can truly experience Scottsdale and recount their adventures to their readers. We craft itineraries filled with the best restaurants, attractions and activities, which are in turn featured in articles in publications like Sunset, Travel + Leisure and more. As the writers go about their fast-paced schedules, they are blown away by all of Scottsdale’s offerings. And

once they visit for themselves, they’re inclined to keep Scottsdale top of mind for future coverage. I encourage you to take some time out of your everyday life and experience Scottsdale for yourself. I guarantee you’ll be blown away too. Before you go out and live like a tourist, here are some of my top recommendations: First things first, step out into the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. We have more than 30,000 acres of pristine, protected Sonoran Desert right outside our doorstep. Explore the Preserve on foot with a hike of the Tom’s Thumb Trail or the Gateway Trail.

Trumpcare will fail; innovation will work By Paul Breslau


f you have a bucket of manure and you put a stick in it and stir, when you pull the stick out what do you have? A bucket of manure. To date, reorganizing our healthcare system seems like stirring the manure, whether you call it Obamacare, Trumpcare, or anything else. We must act to reorganize healthcare to be efficient and effective. This will require adjusting influences from the government, the insurance industry, the pharmaceutical companies, doctors, and the hospital chains as well as from each of us. This will require innovation from industry leaders and entrepreneurs to create a cohesive and affordable health care system. It will require courageous thought from you and me to take ownership of our healthcare in every aspect.

Current evaluation

The Affordable Care Act online enrollment Marketplace (aka “The Exchange”) was rolled out on October 1, 2013. “The launch was marred by serious technological difficulties” according to Jim Hammond of The Hertel Report. At the time, I would say, if several experts tried to create one of the worst computer systems in the world, they might not have done this poorly. Eventually the system was improved, but the Affordable Care Act falters for other reasons. Now I have come to the realization that our entire healthcare system is like in that there are so many aspects that do not work. Briefly, healthcare pricing is opaque and incomprehensible; access to healthcare is difficult with long wait times; budgets are stretched beyond being affordable for governments and businesses, as well as for individuals and families. How will this healthcare game of Jenga be stopped before it topples?

Innovation is the solution

Innovators are working within government, the insurance and medical industries, the pharmaceutical companies and the hospital chains – as well as with many entrepreneurs with new ideas and fresh approaches. There are too many examples for this short space, but here are a few currently available to Airpark businesses: Aetna Insurance and Banner Health have created an Affordable Care Organization (ACO). “When payers and providers come together in this kind of genuine collaboration – with a joint approach to serving members and advancing population health – then we have a rare opportunity to reinvent what healthcare will look like tomorrow,” Peter Fine, president and CEO of Banner Health, said in a prepared statement. “This joint venture is a bold move in that direction.” Scottsdale’s HonorHealth also announced an ACO. “Through the use of technology and care coordination, patients, payers and care providers benefit from the best healthcare outcomes and reduced costs. “We can coordinate care among a larger service area

to help providers take care of patients by enhancing quality and patient satisfaction at a reduced cost for patients and the health system,” said Tiffany Nelson, M.D., a Phoenix primary care physician and Innovation Care Partners’ chief strategy officer. Finally, I have written a few times about Redirect Health located in the Airpark. They are developing EverydayCARE with CareLogistics and this is an excellent employer solution. The model is continually being improved and an individual/family option will be available soon. My agency has enrolled ten businesses with Redirect Health ranging from 300 employees to two employees. While it is tricky pairing EverydayCARE with an insurance plan from UnitedHealthcare, a self-funded plan, or indemnity health plans, the payback is substantial for both the business owners and the employees.

Take control

The healthcare industry is dynamic and competitive. Obamacare, Trumpcare, and other top-down comprehensive solutions might not be the ultimate solution. They might fail. What you can do is work with your agent or research on your own to find the best innovative health solution that will work for you now. As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome.  Paul Breslau, Registered Health Underwriter (RHU), Registered Employee Benefit Consultant (REBC), Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC), Chartered Advisor for Senior Living (CASL), is President of Breslau Insurance & Benefits Inc.

Commercial Condominiums: 13 terms you need to understand By Stephen A. Cross, CCIM


ommercial condominiums provide small- to mid-sized businesses, including healthcare providers, the opportunity to own the building where their business operates… or at least a portion of it. Here are a terms business condo owners need to be aware of and understand. 1. Unit All or a portion of a building designated for separate ownership is called a “Unit.” Generally, each unit owner is responsible for the maintenance of the interior of their unit, including the HVAC system, while the association maintains the exterior walls, roofs and common areas. 2. The Association The Association functions as the voice of the unit owners and the Property Owner’s Association (the "POA") which is typically a nonprofit corporation. Generally, a Board of Directors comprised of unit owners is elected to represent all of the owners and establish such things as an operating budget and reserves, and address ongoing maintenance of the property. 3. CC&Rs and Bylaws The Declaration of CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions) is the document that sets forth what can and cannot be done with a unit. The CC&Rs are recorded in the county records and are legally binding. Bylaws govern how the association operates and contain the information needed to run the association as a business. 4. Common Elements The grounds, including parking lots, which are collectively owned by all Unit Owners are known as "Common Elements" and are maintained by the Association. 5. Limited Common Elements A Common Element that serves only some Units is called a Limited Common Element. Examples include roofs, common restrooms and certain easements. 6. Minutes The written records of meetings are called "minutes." They should provide an overview of the structure of each meeting and include a list of those present, statements of the issues before the participants,

62 | Scottsdale Airpark News April 2017

and summaries of all discussions. 7. Reserves Forward-thinking Associations commission a "Reserve Study" to forecast when repairs or replacements will be required and the estimated cost. The results of this study are used as a guide when determining the amount to assess each Unit Owner for these future expenses. Funds are collected periodically and should be deposited in a "Reserve Account" until needed. 8. Property Manager Most business condo developments outsource day-to-day operational duties to professional property managers. Their job is multi-faceted and can include overseeing the upkeep of the common areas, negotiating contracts, advising on reserves, keeping minutes of meetings and updating the Unit Owners on what’s going on. 9. Assessments Owners of commercial condos pay the same types of expenses for the operating expenses of the common areas as do owners of residential condos, and each Unit Owner is assessed their pro rata share of these costs, typically monthly. In the event the Association needs to pay for a project that was not anticipated in the annual budget/ assessment, a Special Assessment may be levied against all Unit Owners. 10. Sign Criteria Condo associations and the city can restrict the size, color, style, location and number of permitted building signs – so during the due diligence period, read the sign criteria carefully to determine what signage is allowable for your unit. Also, read the CC&Rs to confirm whether real

estate signs (those mini-billboards in front of many buildings) are permitted on the property and where they can be located; this could become critical if you wish to sell or lease your unit. 11. Parking The CC&Rs (and any amendments) should address parking. Be certain to confirm the number of parking spaces that convey with, or are assigned to, each Unit and where they are located, paying particular attention to covered/reserved spaces. 12. Transfer Fees When a Unit changes ownership, records need to be updated. This task is typically handled by the property manager who may charge an administration fee, called a "Transfer Fee." These charges can vary widely, but generally range between $50 and $200. Whether the seller or buyer pays this fee is up for negotiation. 13. Riser Room This is a locked room where the fire sprinkler system is located and contains the primary water input. The square footage of this room is allocated between the Unit Owners on a pro rata basis.  Stephen A. Cross, CCIM, owns CROSS Commercial Realty Advisors and is a licensed real estate broker. Mr. Cross advocates exclusively for tenants and buyers and, since 1984, has advised over 2,700 business owners, attorneys, physicians, facility executives, investors and corporate decision-makers on ways to lease and purchase property at the lowest cost and most favorable terms.

April 2017 Scottsdale Airpark News |



APRIL Business Horoscopes By Weiss Kelly Professional Member of the American Federation of Astrologers

The world’s itinerary is apt to change this month. Worldwide political storms, beginning around April 10, could bring some reversals, meaning “April’s showers” may bring some late May flowers. ARIES 3/21-4/20: You get off to a fast start this month. Address any pending matters, make those calls and finish projects before the week of the 10th. A slowdown of some sort requires you to hold off signing any documents or making verbal agreements. Your schedule is likely to change, so allow yourself some options. The good news is that your finances show a slight gain -- late April brings a new moon accompanied by a new source of income. TAURUS 4/21-5/20: It’s okay to kick back and not push too hard. Be patient. Make your plans early and try to clear your desk of pending mail and correspondence. Do whatever you need to do the first nine days of the month; if not, you may run into delays. Any real estate matters will be reversed or altered or approvals somewhat difficult. All in this scenario works out well. GEMINI 5/21-6/21: Use that creative mind and verbal ability of yours to an advantage in the month ahead. Do whatever you need to do to get the job done. Some decisions will be reached this month -- the earlier the better. Update your records and travel plans with some alternate options. This month’s patterns can be challenging (as your life has been since 2015), but insightful. There could be a welcoming reprieve for both your personal and professional life by mid-month. CANCER 6/22-7/22: Expect to be busy and more assertive in your day-to-day activity. March’s new moon at the end of the month continues to bring new opportunities and developments your way in your business or work life. For some, a raise or new position is in the offering. Businesses or industries that relate directly or indirectly to home, family, service resources, construction, etc. are on the

rise. So is the price. Caution: Take some time and give serious thought to reconsidering or revising a matter. LEO 7/23-8/22: Your communication skills are sharp and direct. This requires some revamping. Why? Because this month some planets may be practically at a standstill, requiring delays or revisions in previous plans. Put in the time to familiarize yourself with the local community. Communications is another area of concern. Be a bit conservative when it comes to doing any advertising or printed work. VIRGO 8/23-9/22: Stay alert. You may have to take over a project, or be assigned to a duty that requires a lot more time or effort this month. You can avoid frustration by planning and catching those mistakes in advance from the 1st to the 9th. Remember the three “Rs”: revise, review and reconsider. Put them in your memory bank and you will do just fine. Clean up the work mess so you can start with a clean slate next month. Allow others not as efficient as you to make some mistakes. LIBRA 9/23-10/22: Like in the song “Rhinestone Cowboy,” you’ll be doing a lot of compromising by mid-month. Try to line up any meetings, assignments or agreements for the first week. A confusing pace can bring some interferences or misunderstandings. No need to panic. No other sign can handle discord as successfully as you. Be prepared to work behind the scenes or act as an arbitrator. Utilize your social skills to the max in April. SCORPIO 10/23-11/21: Watch your words when Mercury goes retrograde around the 10th and stays that way until May 3rd. Take advantage of the free time to catch up, finish up and clear up the confusion. Create a more workable schedule, or confirm any meetings, the first week of the month to avoid any last-minute reversals or cancellations. Check all work-related details this month when everything seems to be in a state of flux, including interest. It is. It’s okay.

SAGITTARIUS 11/22-12/21: “Reconsidering” is this month’s key word when some challenging world affairs and new technological developments are in question. Nothing is for sure. This wait-and-see pattern, between now and June, has you interacting with others on a new level. Keep yourself informed of the upcoming registrations and restrictions being set into place in the months ahead that can affect or relate to your professional or work area. This should bring new opportunities in partnering. Consider launching a new endeavor or learning a new trade or advanced technique. CAPRICORN 12/22-1/19: April’s mixed energies should not threaten you. You can make some renovations in your approach and adjust your strategy to fit this changing economic landscape. Use the time from April 10th until May 3rd to make any changes to areas that are no longer applicable. Keep abreast of the day-to-day news and update your information accordingly. Be conservative in spending and the month will end on a plus. AQUARIUS 1/20-2/19: February’s eclipses in your sign have ushered in a surprise positive influence, meaning the next six months will bring rites of passages in all areas of your life. April’s mixed messages, including a positive change in your financial status, demand you to be flexible on a day-to-day basis. Expect to learn something new or you may have to take on several jobs. Stay within. PISCES 2/20-3/20: It’s time to create a niche for yourself, financially speaking. With planets moving back and forth, miscommunications can easily occur, including on topics of transportation, technology, computers, cell phones or correspondence. That tendency to overlook something will be in high gear. It’s important to communicate clearly. On a more positive note, take time out for yourself. Do some social networking.  For a personal reading, contact Weiss at
