Fair Trade School

Publisher Steve T. Strickbine

Editor Kimberly Hundley


hope I’m not an education snob. I have all the respect in the world for students who have to work their way through school. My dad paid for me to get my master ’s degree, and when I received my diploma in the mail, I forwarded the brown cylinder to him without opening it. “Here’s your receipt,” I scrawled next to the address. I have a good friend who has an inferiority complex about the fact she didn’t go to college. She’s slam-dunked beauty school in record time and makes more money than I do—plus she’s gorgeous, funny and popular. You’d think that would be enough, but every once in a while the insecurities creep out—usually after a glass of wine or three—and she starts moaning about her supposed lack of smarts compared to those of us who braved the ivy-lousy walls of Whatever University. This is a bunch of hooey. But I can’t deny that vocational training doesn’t have the same glittering cache as a traditional college. Parents rarely tell their kids, “Make sure you get good grades because we’ve been saving since your birth for air-conditioning school.” And that attitude is a shame, because so many trade schools offer excellent, tough programs that let students pursue their passions, each of them with more focus and real-word practicality than 1,000 undeclared majors at a frat party. In this installment of our annual education issue, we focus on career training for the aesthetics industry. You may notice that many of the students and even the teachers we interviewed earned traditional university degrees before realizing they would have been better off pursuing their true calling in a trade school.

Cutting-Edge Culture of Penrose Academy Story by Kimberly Hundley Photography by Ross Mason


or Jill Kohler, hairdressing is as much about business as beauty. As the grande dame of Penrose Academy, a private cosmetology and skin-therapy school, she’s dedicated to turning out graduates who know more than tints, scissors and facials. Penrose students are prepped to write a business plan, navigate a profit-loss statement, and to exude the level of professional demeanor usually associated with years in the workplace. Kohler and her husband, Burt, opened the academy in 2006 with a goal of reinventing beauty school education by incorporating a strong business curriculum with technical training. “I’m not a hairdresser, and my husband isn’t a hairdresser,” says Kohler. “I am so confident in my technical staff, but I don’t do hair. I teach them how to shake people’s hands.” The Kohlers, who changed the academy’s name from Kohler to Penrose earlier this year, are obviously doing something very right. Enrollment is so high, the school has a waiting list and has embarked on a renovation and expansion project to nearly triple the number of beds in the onsite spa and make room for a new laser pro-

Jill Kohler, co-owner of Penrose Academy, invites students to show off the tools of their trade on the floor of the Student Salon.

gram by year’s end. Then there are the cold, hard statistics that many an MBA program would envy: 91 percent of Penrose graduates report finding jobs, and 90 percent of all students complete the course of study. Compare that completion rate to, say, Arizona State University, where fewer than one-third of students aspiring to a bachelor’s earn their degrees within four years. Kohler’s simple explanation for the impressive stats is “for-profit trade schools have higher standards we have to answer to” in terms of state accredita-

tion and financial aid qualification. But her method for raising the bar, and getting students to rise along with it, grows from a surprisingly organic source. “It’s our culture,” says Kohler.

Celebrated Culture

Last year, Penrose garnered the award for “best school culture” in a national competition sponsored by Modern Salon magazine. Kohler believes the key to the accolade is the two-hour Thursday assemblies attended by the entire student body for the duration of their 50-week education.

September 2012 Scottsdale Airpark News |


Cosmetology “Salons can be a big mess in the backroom with stylists not treating each other right,” she says. “As I tell my students again and again, women should be holding the ladder for the next woman to climb up it. There is plenty of hair and skin in this world—we can all succeed.” Kohler also eventually adopted a strict punctuality and attendance policy. Doors are locked at 9:01 a.m. Students who are late miss the entire day’s classes and have to make up the hours later. “It sounds crazy, but it gets them to come to school,” says Kohler, pointing to Penroses’s average attendance rate of 98 percent. Most other beauty schools, she says, require students show up only 75 percent of the time. Sometimes guest speakers address the gathering—international luminaries in the fashion world answer questions; a panel of salon owners or returning alumni share insights about the job market. Usually Kohler is the one at the podium,

Penrose Academy 13402 N. Scottsdale Road 480-222-9540 Courses cover methods and products for hair sculpting, styling, color, skin therapy, nail care, makeup application, etc. The Student Salon features 76 hair stations, 12 shampoo stations and a color bar for servicing guests in a realworld setting. An onsite spa is open to the public as well. - The 1,600-hour program for a cosmetology license takes about 11 months to complete. Classes are held three days a week, with program start dates seven times per year (next ones are Oct. 18 and Dec. 11). Cost is $19,500 and includes a professional kit. - The 600-hour program for skin therapy only (aesthetician) takes six months to complete. Classes are three days a week, with four start dates available annually (next one is Oct. 25). Cost is $13,000 and includes a kit. - Graduation ceremonies are every five to eight weeks, as groups of 25 to 29 students finish their rotation through the progressive six-zone program. To inquire about the admissions process, visit

talking about inspiration and personal development. A few weeks ago, she played a country-music tune for the assembly. The singer crooned, “I ain’t as good as I’m gonna get,” and Kohler asked her students to consider the lyric. “It’s not about doing the most perfect hair,” she explains earnestly. “It’s about, ‘Am I becoming a better version of myself, was I kind and tolerant in the process, and did I push myself?’” Each assembly begins with a “celebration” of each other, a public declaration by students who wish to publicly recognize a peer’s outstanding act or kindness. Kara Dawson, 19, graduated last month and says she’s a little wistful about leaving the forum behind. “To be in a room full of women celebrating each other, it was fantastic. And I will probably never get that experience again in school or the workplace.”

Fierce Conversations

When the Kohlers opened their school, they quickly became aware of a business challenge that needed solving—students were complaining about each other and creating a negative environment. Jill Kohler looked into a program called “Fierce Conversations,” which provides tools on how to communicate in a respectful, nonemotional way and work out conflicts. She was so impressed with its value, she became a certified instructor, and now it’s one of the first classes students are required to take. The skills have applications that go beyond the academy setting, says Kohler.

20 | Scottsdale Airpark News September 2012

Practical Appeal

In addition to cultural awareness and professional development, the curriculum includes myriad technical skills, hands-on training and the art of retail sales. It’s a lot to pack into an 11-month program. Penrose Academy was the first in Arizona to adopt a three-day on, four-day off schedule, which boosted interest from prospective students who needed flexibility due to family or work demands, says Kohler. Some find it more convenient to start on Tuesdays, others on Thursdays. Another crucial difference between Penrose and some of its competitors is the application and enrollment process. Would-be students can’t just start anytime, randomly joining a rolling annual program that may be teaching advanced color or introductory styling, or anything in between. There are only seven start dates per year at Penrose, and students move through a progressive curriculum that starts with the basics and builds on them. And Kohler slows the admissions process way down to make sure students are a good match for the program. “Admissions is important,” she says. “I don’t want to come to work here with a bunch of people who don’t want to be here. That brings down everybody, including my 20-plus educators, and I have to retain them to be the best.” Once they get in, enrollees are often surprised at the structured and hectic pace. “There is never a moment where I wonder what I’m supposed to be doing,” says recent graduate 27-year-old Audray

McClelland, who left the marketing world to pursue a career that allows her more creative freedom. While earning her business degree from ASU’s W. P. Carey School, McClelland recalls lots of downtime between classes. “Here you have two half-hour breaks,” she says. “Other than that, you are learning or doing stuff.”

Professional Grooming

McClelland likes the way Penrose encourages students to take the clientele they build at the school with them when they begin their professional careers. Working with such exclusive products as Bumble & bumble, bareMinerals and Dermalogica gives her an edge in the marketplace as well, she adds. As students near graduation, the academy hosts an Industry Day for them to engage in a round of “speed dating” with about 40 salon owners looking for assistants. McClelland says the experience helped her get more comfortable asking questions and expressing her own desires. “This school is pricier than the others. But it’s not just the curriculum you get—you leave here with a kit that is top of the line and you can start cutting hair with,” says McClelland. “I’m glad I didn’t go for a clock-in, clock-out and get your license program. The school that you choose gets you excited about what you do, and when you leave here, you feel you can do anything you want to—runways, magazines, or behind a chair. The sky is the limit.” With graduation only a few days behind her, Dawson already had an interview scheduled for an assistant’s position in a salon, where she intends to refine her skills. When Dawson looks at her sister, who attended college in Washington state for five years and still doesn’t know what to do with her life, she feels fortunate she opted for a vocational school. “I don’t see how you can really go wrong with this career,” she says. “For one, it’s never ending. People will always need their hair cut. Two, it’s 11 months out of your life to get a cosmetology license that you can renew every year, and no one can take that from you. Three, you have a career where if a person is having a bad day, you can change that. Now that I’m doing this, I can’t see myself doing anything else.” Next on Kohler’s list for Penrose is state approval for the new laser program, which she believes is the only missing piece from her undergraduate aesthetics program. Rather than the standard two-week instruction offered by many laser-training programs, Penrose plans to develop a more in-depth approach. “That should make our students’ placement rate even higher,” says Kohler. 

Covering the Spectrum of Makeup



By Kimberly Hundley

heepishly ducking her head, Gabriele Lee confides she almost didn’t show up for her afternoon classes at the Make-up and Fashion Couture Institute because she was upset about cutting her hip-length hair. Plus, she’d purged three-quarters of her closet the night before and had nothing left to wear. “I didn’t tell you to throw away all of your clothes!” chides Dion Kay, president and founder of MFCI. Lee squeezes the stuffed frog Kay gave her for solace. The 22-year-old’s sleek, sculpted coif spills over her shoulders like mahogany ink. Between her new hairdo, flawless features, and classic jeans-andpullover ensemble, she looks like a cross between Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aston. It’s hard to feel sorry for her, but she has endured a series of reality checks in a very short time. Kay, who shoots straight from the hip, has informed Lee that not only was she dressing like a slutty teenager, but she’s too old to start modeling now, a career that Kay retired from at age 23. “Get a real job! Go to school and you will always stay in the industry—and you don’t have to be on diets and go to gyms,” Kay says to her newest student in a Russian accent that both softens and underscores her message. Lee knows Kay is right, even if change isn’t easy. Last month, Lee completed MFCI’s two-week personal makeup course, and then decided to enroll in the full program for professional certification. Because Kay’s approach to teaching the art of makeup embraces every aspect of fashion, Lee has already altered her hair and wardrobe for a more sophisticated look.

Dion Kay, founder of MFCI

Viva la Difference

Kay’s comprehensive approach is one key differentiator between MFCI and its competition; the other is one-on-one training. “It’s always easier this way. I can discover how they think, feel and learn,” says Kay, whose Airpark office includes a makeup studio and lecture room where students learn theory and get hands-on experience. Kay also personalizes both program and scheduling for each of her clients, who proceed at their own pace and qualify for certification at different times. “We have 100 percent job placement,” she says. “My students are requested before they graduate. The program works. We also teach

them how to open their own business and compete.” Kay holds degrees in business management and criminal psychology, and developed the MFCI program based on her multifaceted experiences in the aesthetics industry. In Los Angeles she attended 11 different makeup schools and didn’t like any of them, mainly because they missed the big picture, in her opinion, not to mention the fun. So she opened her own school in Scottsdale three years ago. MFCI students are taught the psychology behind fashion, in addition to men and women’s hair and clothing, and the technical aspects of every kind of

makeup—runway, stage, bridal, magazine, airbrushing, you name it. “I don’t just teach makeup,” says Kay. “I teach the whole, entire industry because without it, my students are going to struggle to get jobs. Anyone can learn face, eyes, makeup—go on YouTube, there are free classes—but you have to understand how to dress people up, to put everything together as a package.”

Career Choices

North Scottsdale resident Todd Thomas, 28, had never touched a makeup brush before he came to Kay’s school in May. The Old Town bartender-turned-barber wanted to expand his skills and segue into doing women’s hair. The training, he thought, would help him create hairstyles to better complement his clients’ makeup. “I have a habit of perfectionism, and Dion really opened my eyes that in makeup there is no such thing as perfection,” he says. “You have to get in there and do what feels right. Understanding that has helped me in

my life overall.” Thomas’ curriculum included a trip to the mall to look at styles, colors, clothing and shoes and a discussion about where the trends are going. To establish his brush skills, Dion would make up one side of model’s face and required Thomas to mimic it on the other side—using his non-dominant hand. Once he conquered that, she told him, he’d be unstoppable. In August, Thomas earned his certification after attending classes four days a week for four hours daily, and is starting cosmetology training at the prestigious Toni & Guy Academy this fall. He says his career goals have changed dramatically. “I am 100 percent now going toward women’s hair. One day, I want to be known for hair or makeup or both.” According to Kay, there are plenty of jobs out there now for makeup artists in Arizona. Makeup studios have sprung up throughout Scottsdale, salons are hiring, residents want personal stylists, and today’s

Make-up and Fashion Couture Institute 7464 E. Tierra Buena Lane Students work one-on-one with founder Dion Kay and other instructors learning all aspects of professional makeup including hair-styling techniques. Programs are tailored to students’ schedules and needs, and hours vary; many complete the course of study in a few months and are officially certified and accredited as professional makeup artists. Tuition is $10,600, though a few scholarships are now available, reducing the fee to $7,600. Info: 602-299-5585;; brides expect airbrushing. Plus, there is the jet-setter scene of fashion shows and movie sets. “If all you want to do is work behind a makeup counter, then you don’t need me,” says Kay. “But if you’re somebody who wants to travel the world and work in salons and learn fashion and this and that, then come to me.” 

In the whimsical pink studio behind her North Scottsdale home, Angela Johnson adjusts the bodice of her signature T-shirt ball gown.

26 | Scottsdale Airpark News September 2012



& Realities By Kimberly Hundley Photography by Mark Susan


spiring fashion designers often walk out of a small-business consultation with Angela Johnson realizing their dreams need some serious alterations. “I call it bubble bursting,” says Johnson, an award-winning clothing designer and fashion instructor who also acts as a consultant for those seeking industry guidance. She takes clients through the obstacles and intricacies of producing their own lines—details she knows from first-hand experience. “You have to have a lot of money or education,” she says.

Valley-based designers face the challenges of launching and sustaining a clothing design business in a city without much of a fashion industry. Phoenix has no garment district and only limited design opportunities. As a designer working from her home off East Shea Boulevard, Johnson is one of the few locals to find success in her own backyard, and even she has to teach classes to keep revenue flowing. Her clothing line, sold online and in select boutiques, features quirky couture made from recycled T-shirts. “Teaching fashion is my other outlet,” says Johnson, an adjunct professor at Collins College and Mesa Community College. “I really enjoy teaching people about the industry. I wish somebody would have come to me when I was in high school—I would have gone straight to fashion school.” Johnson now leads classes in fashion illustration, sewing, clothing construction, textiles and public relations, as well as fashion design and how to put a line together. The majority of her students intend to pursue a career in the fashion industry, she says. Those who stay in the Valley tend to

apply their education to jobs in merchandising, while a few move to New York City or Los Angeles to assist designers.

Fashion Tale

After attending Northern Arizona University, where she did a lot of snowboarding, Johnson realized she had a passion for design. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, and almost instantly landed an entry-level “sweatshop” job with X-girl Clothing, owned by Mike Diamond of The Beastie Boys, her favorite band. Johnson worked her way up from cutter to production manager, making connections and learning the ropes before deciding to launch her own line, inspired by boardsports fashions. The effort involved a lot of shoe leather—Johnson handled design, production and sales, physically hauling fabrics to cutters and sweet talking contacts into working on smaller projects that they ordinarily would not bother with. Most important, she had a soap-actress friend and investor who paid for everything. Then just as the line was growing internationally and on the cusp of sub-

Johnson’s grandmother died, and she moved back to Arizona to take care of her grandfather. Because of the lack of local resources in Arizona, continuing the clothing line wasn’t an option. “I had to figure out something else to do,” Johnson says. While shopping the vintage stores for inspiration, she came up with the idea of using readily available material—graphic tees. Johnson designed a new line trans-

and get established and make contacts.” Because there are so few design jobs in the Valley, those determined to make it as designers have little choice other than heading to a big city—unless they start their own business. “And then you are limited because you can’t mass produce,” says Johnson. It’s that inability to mass produce that holds Johnson back from growing her own popular line. Because each T-shirt logo is carefully placed by hand, the dresses can’t be made by machine. “There is only so much of me, so I’m kind of at the max of how many orders I can do,” she says, adding that just a few more sales per week would be a perfect balance. Johnson knows she could probably be one of those brand-name designers if she were willing to relocate. But she’s doing the kid thing these days, and life is good. “I really love Scottsdale. It’s so family friendly, and my husband loves it here now too,” she says. “I love working for myself, and I love that my studio is in my backyard.” 

forming recycled shirts into one-of-a-kind creations including ball gowns. “I completely reconstruct them in different silhouettes,” she says. Johnson also began teaching fashion classes. The Valley may not have much in the way of an industry, but ironically there is a lot of training here, says Johnson, singling out Mesa Community College for its million-dollar program and state-of-the art machinery. Even with talent and education, however, launching a clothing line is expensive. Just getting a sample line ready to show to prospective buyers costs thousands—checks must go out for pattern makers, sewers, models, fittings and reps. If you’re fortunate enough to get orders, the production bill can climb to $100,000. Part of Johnson’s curriculum involves communicating the financial realities of the business. “For me, the rewarding part of teaching is to explain that to students before they go out and spend their money and go out of business,” she says. “Instead, they may want to find an investor or go to L.A.

businessprofile TK Urban Tavern co-owners Tom Kelly, Patrick Fegan and Brian Pierce could open their second North Scottsdale location as early as Sept. 20.

Make It a Double T

Local urban tavern expands north

By Kimberly Hundley

K’s Urban Tavern at Scottsdale Quarter is expanding its culinary concept northward to Hayden Peak Crossing, the shopping center anchored by Fry’s just north of the 101 at Hayden Road. The upscale yet affordable eatery known for contemporary American fare expects to start serving between Sept. 20 and Sept. 30 in the building recently vacated by O’Donoghue’s Irish pub. As of press time, partners Tom Kelly, Brian Pierce and chef Patrick Fegan hadn’t settled on a name for their newest venture, but it will probably be along the lines of “Tavern Americana,” according to Kelly. The only reason Kelly’s initials preface the moniker of the Scottsdale Quarter spot, he adds, is because somebody beat them to the trademark “Urban Tavern.” Now, a year a half later, everybody calls the place TK’s, and suffice to say no partner’s initials will likely be in the mix for the new project, which started simmering about five months ago when the trio heard rumblings about O’Donaghue’s pending closure. They decided to feel out the possibilities of developing a second location in partnership with the owners of the building, which leases from the Pederson Group.

“We struck up a conversation,” Pierce says. “What would be great for the Grayhawk community, what would be great for the Crossing, for Pederson as the landlord, and for us as a group?” Though some of the restaurants would falter by summer’s end, diners had a feast of choices at the crossroads of Hayden and Thompson Peak Parkway—locally owned Japanese, Mexican, Italian and Cajun spots in addition to burgers, frozen yogurt, pizza and chain-food options. The parties came to a mutual decision, says Pierce. “It’s going to be an American tavern with a variation of [TK’s] menu … rather than one specific genre of food.” Dishes will likely include patron favorites such as chipotle shrimp with bacon and creamed leeks; jalapeno-spiked pepperoni pizza; and braised short-rib over house-made ribbons of pasta. Plans also call for a wine lounge and cellar, a prominent wood-fired pizza oven, and what Pierce resolves will be “one of the best craft-beer selections in Arizona.” Wi-Fi, of course, will be on the menu again too, as one would expect of an energized modern hotspot. Fegan (an alum of Olive & Ivy, and Fiamma Trattoria) says the creative challenge of crafting a new menu is exciting—even if the timeline leaves something to be desired. Finalizing the deal had taken months, but once the partners

got the green light, they jumped on the fast track, nailing down the lease, the demo permit and submission of final plans to the city in only a few weeks. “I’m sleeping about four hours a day,” says Fegan, dismissing the dark smudges under his eyes with a “par for the course” shrug.

Urban Beginnings

When TK’s alighted at the Scottsdale Quarter back in January 2011, it didn’t take long for area residents and visitors to take notice of the homegrown tavern. “We got busy pretty quick,” Pierce says. “I think every Friday and Saturday until this summer, we’ve been running a 45-minute to one-hour wait for dinner.“ Not every food-and-drink purveyor in the mixed-use center has been as fortunate since the Quarter’s debut in 2009. Parc Central, which aspired to dazzle patrons with its modern take on a New York City steakhouse, failed to gain a following. The gourmet market Oakville Grocery packed up and moved to downtown Phoenix. And clubby nosh-and-quaff spot Primebar faded away as well. But Pierce isn’t surprised TK’s found its audience. The idea for an urban tavern sprang from the partners’ own longing for a sophisticated and accessible place to enjoy

exceptional good food, wine and beer for a good price. “I get really frustrated because we don’t have one of these by my house,” says Pierce, gesturing to TK’s dining room, which lies seven miles from his front yard. Ironically, getting TK’s into the Scottsdale Quarter was a bit of a tough sell. Back in 2010, Kelly and Pierce were

talking about opening a tavern after they’d left the world of luxury hotels, but they couldn’t find the right venue. A broker told them a tenant had backed out of a restaurant space at the new Scottsdale Quarter, and the duo headed over to take a look. “We figured Apple, West Elm and Sam Fox [True Food] must know something about location,” laughs Pierce, referring to some of the Quarter’s earliest, well-known tenants. The lease wasn’t a gimme, though. Glimcher Realty Trust, which manages and owns interest in the property, was looking for more recognizable, national chains, says Pierce. Eventually the partners convinced Glimcher their tavern concept would have the same wide appeal as Zinc Bistro, a local restaurant doing brisk business across the street at Kierland Commons. Pierce brought in Fagan, who he knew from the Phoenician Resort, and the three co-owners moved forward to shape a contemporary hangout in the style of New York City’s Gramercy Tavern. As more office tenants have flocked to the Scottsdale Quarter, lunch business has swelled, particularly when lodging giant Starwood brought its corporate headquarters and 250 employees to the center last year, says Pierce. He expects that sometime in 2015 TK’s will hit the mark for being as busy as possible for an 80-seat restaurant. In the meantime, the partners predict their “Tavern Americana” in Grayhawk will find favor with a variety of prospective patrons—neighborhood lunch seekers, moms grabbing a bite after tennis matches, softball teams from the fields across the street, happy hour enthusiasts and foodies galore.  September 2012 Scottsdale Airpark News |

Rancho Solano Prep Welcomes Students to Scottsdale Campus


fter three years of planning, Rancho Solano preparatory high school opened its 82,000-square-foot Ventura Campus in August with 270 students, 30 classrooms and class sizes limited to 20 students. Located at 9180 E. Via De Ventura, the campus serves middle and high school students from metro Phoenix as well as from around the world. The new campus comes 58 years after the school’s founding by pioneering educator Tedii Bayer-Freesmeyer, and showcases striking views of surrounding vistas in an academic setting. “This is a pivotal point in Rancho Solano’s history,” says Jim Carruthers, president of Rancho Solano. “With the launch of this extraordinary facility, we will improve our delivery and dedication to delivering the finest education to our local students as well as our Smiling is Caroline Armknecht, Dalia Khaled, boarding students. The Kyle Rubin. Ventura Campus was designed for students to experience a competitive, world-class education and prepare them to be successful in an increasingly competitive, global marketplace.” Carruthers adds that it’s fitting the school landed its facility within the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, bringing another level of cultural diversity to Rancho Solano; scholarships will be available to children of the community.

In addition to outstanding academic honors courses, Rancho Solano is the only private school in greater Phoenix to offer the accredited International Baccalaureate Programme (IB), which is recognized worldwide for its academic rigor. As a member of the Meritas International Family of Schools, other academic differentiators include the Meritas Academic Plan and Touchpoints, a program where students partner with peers around the globe and use video conferencing to resolve global dilemmas with those in other Meritas schools. The creation of a 25,000-square-foot student center/gymnasium is planned. Rancho Solano’s present 82,000 square-foot Ventura Campus was constructed by Hardison Downey, general contractors; and Ayers Saint Gross, architects. The school has four campuses: Phoenix – Greenway (Phoenix); Gilbert; Hillcrest (Peoria); and Ventura (Scottsdale).  Known since its founding for an excellent accelerated curriculum for preschool through middle school, it opened its first preparatory high school at the Union Hills Campus in Glendale in 2008, to great demand.  Four years later, more than $800,000 in scholarships was awarded to 18 students of the first graduating class of 2012 of Rancho Solano Preparatory High School, evidence of the success of the school’s critical College Advisory program. For a tour of the new Rancho Solano Middle and Preparatory High School at the Ventura Campus, contact Steve Blanchard, director of enrollment, at 480-646-8201. 

Four Core Disciplines

The Rancho Solano preparatory high school has four honors schools and classrooms with glass doors that open into collaborative spaces designed for each educational core. The four core honors disciplines include Entrepreneurship, Math/Science/Technology, Humanities and Performing Arts. The Entrepreneurship program puts students into real-world situations to encourage first-hand experience in the marketplace. Its collaborative area includes a digital stock ticker that lines an upper wall. The Science sector can expand to host a science fair in the collaborative area, the Humanities section offers boardroom-like settings, and the Fine Arts core has movable stages.

James Carruthers, president of Rancho Solano, congratulates Nicole Suren (grade 10) and Shannon Gurley (grade 9) on winning full-tution, one-year scholarships worth $17,600 each. The girls earned the highest scores of 25 competitors from the Via de Ventura campus.

“You’ve got mail!”

The AOL email phrase made popular in the 1998 Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie seems quaint in these days of tweets, Skype, texting and other forms of instant messaging. Can anyone remember when the only way to affordably communicate—especially long distance—was via the U.S. Post Office? A few decades back and more, we seemed to be OK with waiting a good week to send a reply to correspondence received; now just about everyone expects an immediate answer to their electronic messages. It may be branded today as “snail mail,” but sending a physical letter or package via the post was—and is—a method that serves us well and faithfully. So what is Scottsdale’s history of post offices, commemorative stamps and all things postal?

The Scoop

As a bit of background, the United States first issued postage stamps in 1847.  During Arizona’s early territorial days of the 1860s, courageous riders of the Pony Express overland mail delivery service brought our ancestors their infrequent but welcome mail from “back East.”  In 1897—less than 10 years after Winfield and Helen Scott homesteaded what we now know as Scottsdale—J. L. Davis opened a general store at Brown and Main. It was not only the settlement’s first retail operation, but also the first official post office in Scottsdale. Davis was the settlement’s first postmaster. About six years later, Davis sold the store to Mrs. Sarah Coldwell Thomas, who became Scottsdale’s first postmistress.  During the early 1920s, Scottsdale’s post office operated from a store on the north side of Johnny Rose’s Pool Hall, on the east side of Brown Avenue (now the site of Mexican Imports).  In 1928, Scottsdale merited a new, freestanding U.S. Post Office, located on Brown Avenue, north of Main Street. Mr. Conrad was the postmaster; Mr. Lutes was the rural mail carrier. The site later became Porter’s Western Store.  Immediately following World War II, merchant Earl Shipp built a new post office and appliance store on Scottsdale Road.  Scottsdale Post Office moved into a new building on the north side of West First Street in 1954-1955.  In 1955, the Hashknife Pony Express had its first annual reenactment ride, delivering mail from Holbrook, Ariz., to the Scottsdale Post Office in 1958; the ride continued annually and is next scheduled for Jan. 30–Feb. 1, 2013, to coincide with Parada Del Sol in Scottsdale, as usual.  The Scottsdale Post Office moved from First Street to a new facility on Fourth Street in January 1959.  Scottsdale opened its first permanent branch post office, Papago Station, on McDowell Road at 74th Street in 1962.  In 1963, the U.S. Post Office introduced the ZIP (Zoning Improvement Plan) Code system; four-digit extensions to ZIP codes were introduced in 1983.  After several years of controversy about the site (traffic congestion concerns), a new U.S. Post Office opened at the northeast corner of Osborn Road and Brown Avenue in 1965. O.C. Wilson was the postmaster.  When Federal Express was founded in 1971, businesses could affordably send documents throughout the country overnight. Email was also “invented” circa 1971 and came into popularity in the 1980s. The U.S. Postal System also adopted overnight mail capabilities and

began using the Internet and email in the 1990s and 2000s.  The Hopi branch post office opened in 1976 near Via de Ventura and Pima Road, serving McCormick Ranch.

 In the mid-1970s, the Pinnacle Peak General Store offered U.S. mail services for the sparsely populated county area north of Scottsdale’s thenmunicipal boundary. The General Store—just like days of yore, and like Scottsdale’s first 1897-era P.O.—became an area gathering spot for mail, breakfast, groceries, gasoline and gossip.  The U.S. Post Office opened on Evans Drive in the Scottsdale Airpark in 1989, serving the growing number of businesses opening in and around the Airpark.  In 2000, the Kachina branch of the U.S. Postal Service opened on Williams Drive just south of Rawhide, serving the northernmost part of the city.  Sculptor Herb Mignery’s Hashknife Pony Express work of public art was dedicated on Feb. 1, 2008. The sculpture was welcomed by members of the Hashknife Pony Express on horseback to its canal-side location in downtown Scottsdale.  The main Scottsdale Post Office moved from its Osborn Road location to a refurbished furniture store on the northwest corner of McDowell and Scottsdale roads in 2008.

Scottsdale’s postal history goes beyond mail, stamps, packages and mailboxes; it’s all about the loyal, dedicated and professional postal employees who have served us over the years and continue to do so today. In addition to their day-in and day-out customer service, postal workers join together every spring for a city-wide food drive, which helps residents in need. Sure, I’m doing most of my correspondence by email these days, but I still send greeting cards, thank you notes and other personal expressions via the postal system. And, how can I not support that endearing young man in the television commercials who tells us, “If it fits, it ships”? See you at the post office! 

How to Drive Visitors to Scottsdale


ising room rates, growing bed-tax collections and new destination amenities have helped lift Scottsdale’s tourism industry thus far in 2012. These positive advancements along with numerous other private and public investments are energizing our community. To help us gain additional market share, the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau has many exciting programs launching this year. And we’re confident in the investments By Rachel Sacco, Scottsdale Convention we’re making because of our detailed research and strategic planning. Here & Visitors Bureau are just a few ways we’re working to drive new visitors and meetings groups to Scottsdale.  We are touting Scottsdale as “The World’s Finest Golf Destination” to avid golfers by partnering with local PGA Tour Pro and Golf Channel Analyst Brandel Chamblee, who is serving as the face of Scottsdale golf. As part of this campaign, the bureau launched, as well as print and broadcast ads featuring Brandel’s tongue-in-cheek “rules” for playing Scottsdale golf.  Based on targeted research, the bureau is marketing Scottsdale to 100,000 U.S. customers who are most likely to vacation here during the holidays, when our hotels and resorts have rooms to fill. The multi-year campaign will help us compete against other warm-weather markets during this need period.  We’re increasing our marketing, public relations and sales efforts in Scottsdale’s top domestic and international markets— New York and Canada, respectively—to broaden our exposure in each market and drive incremental business.  We’re enhancing our website technology to make interacting with easier across multiple screen sizes and devices—whether visitors are on their desktop computer, a smartphone or a tablet device.  Once a meeting planner has experienced the destination first-hand, we know they are more likely to book their next program in Scottsdale. Therefore, the bureau is continuing its “Site See & Fly Free on Us” program to encourage planners to visit Scottsdale to see why the area is one of the top U.S. meetings destinations. In the past year, this program has helped generate nearly 12,000 additional room nights for Scottsdale-area hotels and resorts. As a destination, it’s important that we never rest on our laurels. As a bureau, we have the same philosophy and are excited to launch these new programs that will help Scottsdale remain competitive.  Rachel Sacco is the president and CEO of the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, which is responsible for marketing the Scottsdale area as a premier travel and meetings destination to national and international leisure visitors, travel agents, tour operators and meeting planners.

Financial Questions for the Retiring Homeowner


6 questions to contemplate

o you see yourself retiring in the near future? In planning for that transition, you might want to consider the state of your mortgage, the state of your property taxes, and the state of your living quarters. Could you pay off your mortgage in the next few years? If your home is paid off, great. If you are close to paying it off, think about putting whatever extra cash you can spare toward your home By Gavin Tolan, loan. (Not money from your retirement Williams Financial Inc. accounts, of course—funds from other sources.) If your mortgage balance is just too big to pay down, you can always attempt to refinance. If you can, structure your loan so that you can pay it off in what will presumably be the first part of your retirement.

Are you paying too much in property taxes? Did you know that many cities and counties make an effort to lower property tax rates for homeowners older than 65? Call or visit the office of the assessor or recorder where you live. Ask about this, and see if you qualify. Even if you don’t, by doing some online research (or gently asking a neighbor or two) you might discern that your property tax rate is too high. You can officially appeal it on your own or with the assistance of a real estate professional. What needs to be done to your residence? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a home with a yard requiring less upkeep as you age? How about a home you can safely get around in? Landscaping changes and the installation of certain senior safety

features can be well worth the expense. It is wise to arrange home improvements while you are still salaried. Should you sell your home? Some retirees are moving out of big homes into smaller quarters, yes, even in today’s market. Is that really worth doing? While the answer will vary per homeowner, some real estate analysts and financial industry professionals believe downsizing in this market may be worth it for many retirees. While home equity has diminished since 2006, they contend it could take several more years for home values to return to anywhere near those levels—economic conditions in this decade may not create the kind of “sweet spot” the market benefited from in the 2000s. If you wouldn’t buy your home today because of financial, neighborhood or family factors, that is a signal that you might want to consider downsizing. Should you get a reverse mortgage? While the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released a dismissive report on reverse mortgages this summer, these financial instruments may come in handy for many retirees in the coming years. You may be familiar with the arguments against them: their mechanics are too complex to readily understand, one spouse may not absorb all the details as well as the other spouse, people are increasingly taking them out at younger ages and sometimes using the funds for investment purposes. All that said, less than 3 percent of eligible homeowners arrange them. The size of a reverse mortgage relates to three factors: the value of the home, the age of the borrower and the interest rate on the loan. HUD-insured reverse mortgages are available to homeowners older than 62 who have either paid off their primary residence or can easily do so via the loan. An income stream can result from reverse mortgages (for as long as the borrower remains in the home, of course). A lump sum or a HELOC is also possible. You may want to examine the option as you retire.  Gavin Tolan is a financial consultant with Williams Financial Group in Scottsdale.  He has served individual investors throughout the Valley for the past 18 years with investment recommendations, account management and retirement planning.

The Ironing Lady Relocates to New Airpark Quarters


he Ironing Lady, the only company in Arizona offering a professional hand-ironing service and luxury bed linen care, has recently moved to a new location in the Scottsdale Airpark, at 7900 E. Greenway Road, just east of the Scottsdale Quarter. Brokered by Cutler Commercial, the new space provides a more cost-effective solution with low ceilings and dual-zone air cooling for the hand-ironing service, which is carried out on premises, and can handle up to six ironing workstations simultaneously. “The Scottsdale Airpark is the perfect location for our business, as it is the ideal hub central to our busiest pickup and delivery routes throughout Scottsdale and Paradise Valley”, says Brian Serino, vice president. The Ironing Lady has been operating out of the Airpark since 2004, formerly on Evans Road. “We believe we have found our ideal premises in our new location,” says Karen Serino, president and founder of The Ironing Lady. “We have learned to avoid the high ceilings found in many of the warehouses because of how costly it can be to keep cool whilst ironing during the summer months, and also to avoid the dust and dirt that accumulates, which is completely unacceptable in our line of business.” Established in 2004, The Ironing Lady offers pick-up and delivery for its European hand-ironing service. All the ironing is done by hand from start to finish, says Karen. The bed linen service includes both the gentle laundering of fine bed linens as well as hand ironing.

Ironing is charged by weight at $7 per pound for all standard clothes, bedding and table linens. Certain items may be charged extra such as ruffles, trims and embellishments. The price includes pick-up and delivery, and covers Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek, Carefree, and Central Phoenix. The Ironing Lady has more than 1,000 private customers, including high-end linen stores and interior designers. Karen relocated to Arizona from England in 2003. Much to her surprise, she found the ironing services that she was used to back in England—and that are quite popular on the East Coast—were nowhere to be found in the Valley. It didn’t take long for her to realize how popular such a convenient service would be in her new home, and The Ironing Lady was born. “Ironing is not for everyone. It takes a lot of elbow grease and a keen eye for perfection, as well as a considerable amount of time,” she says.  More:; 480-314-4766.

Exercise Your Right to Vote


by Scottsdale Leadership Alumni

’m too busy. Candidates all seem the same. My vote won’t matter. Are these excuses you use to skip exercising your constitutional right to vote? Did you know Arizona ranks in the bottom 10 states for voter turnout? Part of being a good community steward means your voice needs to be heard! Scottsdale Leadership’s nine-month core program is dedicated to informing, inspiring and empowering leaders to strengthen the interests of the community, and exercising your right to vote is part of that. Scottsdale’s last primary election was held in 2008, and the latest statistics show that only 28 percent of our city’s voters turned out to vote. The right to vote gives us the ability to choose how we are governed, taxed and protected, so if some of these excuses sound familiar, consider these points: I’m too busy. Everything you do in regard to work, school, family and leisure is heavily impacted by individuals we put into public office. Property taxes might look very different under different leadership. What about funding for education and

Candidates and Elected Officials Reception Those interested in a one-on-one talk with federal, state and city candidates and elected officials are invited to the Scottsdale Leadership Candidates and Elected Officials Reception. The event is set for Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Chart House restaurant, on Scottsdale Road and McCormick Parkway. Info and tickets:

safety in your neighborhood? Candidates have very different viewpoints about how to fund various sectors, if at all. I think you get the point. Taking time to vote shapes our future; it’s well worth the effort! If you’re not registered to vote, it’s a simple process. You can go to the Service Arizona website (http://servicearizona. com) and find registration, early ballots, absentee ballots, polling places and other useful information. The process couldn’t be easier for making your voice heard. Candidates all seem the same. Should you vote for “Change, Results, Future”

or “Proven Leadership,” or “Town and Community”? Slogans may sound good, but what’s behind the catchy phrases? Read the paper, attend candidate information sessions, do research on candidate’s websites, Facebook, online and get to know who is running so you learn about their qualifications and decipher their campaign messages. Do you want to get to know your candidates on a more personal level? Scottsdale Leadership is hosting a “Candidates and Elected Officials” reception at the Chart House on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 5:30 p.m. This event is all about candidates and elected officials talking with community members one on one. No candidate is given microphone time nor can any candidate bring materials to pass out. This event isn’t about campaign flyers and speeches, it is about getting to know constituents. My vote won’t matter. People often become indifferent about voting because their lives don’t seem to be impacted regardless of who is elected. While that might seem like the case for someone who’s not participating in the process, it simply isn’t true. Events over the past 10 years, no matter your political affiliation, would be much different had the other candidate been chosen. This is true at all levels of government. Wars, health care, the economy, immigration, zoning practices—all would have been handled differently by a different set of elected officials. Over the past 12 years, we have seen elections at every level, from the president of the United States to Scottsdale’s local offices, decided by razor-thin margins. The notion that your one vote doesn’t count doesn’t hold water. Every vote counts! With this in mind, politicians gear their policies and communication toward those who vote in the highest numbers. No matter what their party affiliation, our elected officials are charged with working for the best interests of our citizens. They sometimes have diverse ways to get things accomplished. Regardless of the kind of work you do or whether you’re still a student, government touches every aspect of your life. Don’t you want a say in who gets elected and what policies they want to advance? Make time to vote. Research the candidates; they are diverse. And remember, when you vote, it always makes a difference! 

Ellen Degeneres and Ken Jeong were among the many celebrities who attended the last SU2C telethon, held in 2010.  

Pancreatic cancer is extremely difficult to treat and the fourth-most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the country. SU2C awarded an $18 million research grant in 2009 naming Scottsdale Healthcare’s chief scientific officer Daniel Von Hoff, M.D., as co-leader of the pancreatic cancer Dream Team. Von Hoff is also TGen’s physician-in-chief. “There are many clinical trials underway with investigational drugs that may help us advance in the battle against pancreatic cancer. Right here in the Valley, several of these

studies are in progress at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare,” says Ramesh Ramanathan, M.D., medical director of Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center Clinical Trials. Ramanathan, as well as Von Hoff, was onstage during the last SU2C telethon and plans to be attend this year ’s event. Scientists in the Stand Up to Cancer team have recently found that a widely used anti-malarial drug can induce the death of cancer cells that depend on a process called autophagy. A clinical trial has started at Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center using the agent with standard chemotherapy. Each clinical trial has specific criteria that interested patients must meet in order to participate. “These important studies also help to advance our knowledge about cancer and how to fight it,” Ramanathan says. “Still, it’s important to recognize that while clinical trials are closely monitored and regulated, there are risks. Ramesh Ramanathan, M.D. The new drugs and treatments being studied may not be an improvement over the standard drugs and treatments.” Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center Clinical Trials is known worldwide for its expertise in studying new treatments for many types of cancer. A list of studies underway can be found at, and those interested in participating can talk to their oncologist about whether any may be appropriate. The Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare opened in 2001 as the first major cancer center in greater Phoenix, offering comprehensive cancer care and research through Phase I clinical trials, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support services in collaboration with leading researchers and community oncologists. The Scottsdale Healthcare cancer program holds Accreditation with Commendation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. 

‘Defined Contribution’ Insurance Option Gains Popularity


By Paul Breslau, Breslau Insurance & Benefits Inc.

here are many directions health insurance may take in 2013 and 2014 due to health care reform and market changes. This is true whether the Affordable Care Act of 2010 is fully implemented, repealed or anything in between. The competitive nature of industry is to find and implement better solutions. On the employee-benefits side of the industry, Defined Contribution health insurance plans have garnered a market share in several states. Some benefits experts advocate a shift to this kind of insurance as a viable solution in all states.

Follows Pension Example

Defined Benefit Pension plans were the industry standard earlier in our lifetime. Nearly the entire pension industry converted to Defined Contribution plans, mostly of the 401k variety, in the last decades. This change helps employees who switch

employment more frequently than prior generations. Today’s employees easily qualify for and then take their 401k funds with them. Employers were helped because significantly increased life expectancies challenged the solvency of Defined Benefit Pension plans. For employer-sponsored health insurance a similar significant shift from Defined Benefit to Defined Contribution is expected by some. Similar to the pension shift, there will be benefits to both employees and employers with Defined Contribution.


Your employers don’t choose your home, your car or your lifestyle, so why should they choose your health insurance company, doctor network, deductible or coinsurance? Why should you lose your health insurance if you terminate employment? In Defined Contribution insurance, employers don’t buy a group policy. Instead they fund an account for each employee. The employee then purchases individual or family health insurance premium or other designated health-related expenses. This can be done through a tax-advantaged “health reimbursement account,” or HRA. The advantage to employers is they will have known predict-

able costs. They will not be responsible for bidding, implementing, administering and renewing health insurance. They also will not be penalized as a business—and neither will all the employees—when there are serious medical conditions in their group, like cancers and transplants. One method of doing this is for the employer to fund a tax-deductible HRA for each employee. The employee can choose how to spend their dollars, again tax free. Some might want a high-deductible plan. One employee might like Aetna, and other employees might like BlueCross or UnitedHealthcare. Perhaps a spouse has medical coverage, and the employee doesn’t want health insurance at all but prefers to buy disability or long-term care insurance. According to Chip Shank, president and founder of the payroll company Compass-I, there is a better method to implement Defined Contribution health. “It is called a Health Care Premium Reimbursement plan or HCPR,” says Shank. “This payroll-based solution eliminates the need to form a Section 125 Cafeteria plan and fund an account. HCPR is streamlined and cost effective for all parties.” Shank adds that you may need to search diligently to explore this option, as HCPR isn’t marketed by many agents, payroll companies and third-party administrators.

Insurance Exchanges

As of 2014, health insurance will be required of everyone, and exchanges will be set up as options to purchase policies. Arizona will have a state-sponsored exchange expected to operate concurrently with private exchanges and health insurance agents. No one will be declined for health insurance based on the underwriting of their medical conditions. This may allow the Defined Contribution insurance to succeed in Arizona, which now has competitive individual health markets but not for those with medical conditions.

Action Required

Defined Contribution health will work today in many circumstances. HRAs and HCPRs can also be used with group high-deductible plans as a transition. One example is the Chamber Benefit Administrators plan sponsored by the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce. Continue working with your current health insurance agent to explore all options. If they are unfamiliar with Defined Contribution health, find agents or other providers who can offer a second opinion. 

Sapporo Scottsdale Presents the 2012 Breast of Scottsdale


Sept. 12 pink party to benefit AIBH

id you know that each year, more than 4,000 women in Arizona are diagnosed with breast cancer? And that each and every single one of them has a place to go for help for free? It’s true—Arizona Institute for Breast Health (AIBH) is a nonprofit organization headquartered in North Scottsdale focused solely on providing women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer a second opinion on treatment options completely free of charge. “Since our inception in 1998, we’ve sought to provide education, resources and support to newly diagnosed patients with the help of our volunteer team of physicians and medical professionals whose specialties include breast radiology, breast surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, reconstructive surgery and breast pathology,” said AIBH co-founder Dr. Coral Quiet, who was recently named a finalist for the 2012 ATHENA Award for her work to educate women on their breast cancer treatment options. The organization’s hard and sometimes costly work has not gone unnoticed.

This year, in fact, the Scottsdale Airpark community is rolling up its sleeves and stepping up to join AIBH in its mission to help the women of Arizona with a special event—The First-Ever Breast of Scottsdale, which may be the pinkest party Scottsdale has ever seen. Sapporo Scottsdale, in partnership with Belvedere Vodka, is presenting the special event on Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 6 p.m. to close. The community is invited to sip and sample sumptuous pink-themed food and drink menu items while enjoying music, interactive photography by Clique Photo Station and other surprises.

Pink attire is requested, and prizes will be awarded to the most creative, zany and fabulous pink costumes and casual wear alike. A portion of the proceeds from these items, which will be officially available throughout October at Sapporo Scottsdale, will benefit Arizona Institute for Breast Health and its critical mission. All proceeds will benefit the organization’s Pink Light District. Guests are also able to take advantage of the regularly priced wines, beers and cocktails as well as traditional menu items throughout the evening. The cost to attend is a simple $25 online donation that will be used to sponsor an AIBH “Pink Light,” which honors a loved one of the guest’s choosing impacted by breast cancer. The lights will illuminate the Marshall Way Bridge in Scottsdale starting Oct. 4 and throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To register, visit For those who want to get involved but are unable to make the party, members of the Scottsdale Airpark community and beyond are invited to sponsor a pink light in honor of a loved one touched by cancer. Visit Each honoree who is gifted a light will receive a Pink Light Tribute Card, and their name will be placed in the 2012 Pink Light Honor Album on the AIBH website. There is no limit to the number of lights one can buy to recognize and honor those in their lives. Sponsorships of multiple lights and other donation opportunities are also available. “This year, we are extremely honored to have Dr. William Leighton as our 2012 Pink Light District Premier Sponsor,” said AIBH executive director Christine Fenwick, a 17-year breast cancer survivor. In addition to Dr. Leighton, other valuable corporate sponsors include Yeager North, Iron Medical Systems, Olive & Ivy, Anasazi Internal Medicine, HMA Public Relations, Sapporo Scottsdale, Leighton & Abdo Attorneys at Law, Fiesta Furnishings and Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists, which is led by AIBH co-founder Dr. Quiet, who also serves as the organization’s volunteer medical director. 

Polo Party,


New event on track to make big impact on Scottsdale brand


rizona already has the Fiesta Bowl. Now it’s time for “The Fiesta Bowl of Polo,” the biggest polo event to ever hit Arizona, taking place Oct. 20 at WestWorld of Scottsdale’s Polo Field. Think of it as an atmosphere like the famed 16th hole at the Waste Management Phoenix Open but anchored by polo, not golf. And think of it as a significant economic opportunity for the city in general and the Airpark area in particular. Whereas many polo events are organized for high-flying jetsetters, the Scottsdale party will have a little something for everyone: inexpensive tickets for families yet exclusive opportunities to entertain and party. That’s why thousands flocked to the event last year, with more than 5,000 expected next month.  Sponsored by the city of Scottsdale, BarrettJackson Car Collector Auction, Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and many others, “The Scottsdale Polo Championships: Horses+Horsepower” has greatly expanded from last year’s inaugural event and will now feature a two-match showdown with some of the biggest names in American polo. Gates will open at 10:30 a.m., followed by the first match at 1 p.m. pitting Harvard University against Work to Ride, the first African American high school polo champion in U.S. history. Immediately following at 3 p.m. will be the second matchup: The Hamptons, led by top-ranked American Polo Star Tommy Biddle Jr., vs. The Bel Air Polo Club. Both matches will be vying for the Molina Cup, sponsored by Molina Fine Jewelers of Phoenix.  “It’s amazing to see the sport of polo growing and expanding into new arenas,” said Roldan. “I enjoy seeing it gain more exposure. I can’t wait to get to Scottsdale in October for a spectacular day of polo.” But great polo isn’t the only attraction that will be on display. Attendees will also enjoy a sneak preview of Scottsdale Airparkbased events like the 2013 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and see some serious horsepower with a preview of Barrett-Jackson’s 2013 Collector Car Auction along with the local Ferrari and Lamborghini clubs lining the field. The “World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction” will host its 42nd annual show in January.  “After our Las Vegas event in September, this is the perfect way and perfect crowd to start gearing up for our January extravaganza,” said Barrett-Jackson Vice President of Sales & Marketing Phil Neri.  Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show Executive Director Taryl O’Shea echoed similar sentiments.  “We may be the biggest equestrian event but we support all efforts to brand Scottsdale as a destination for equestrian

activities. I was at the event last year and was very impressed. It’s why we are participating again this year and why this ‘Polo Party’ has great potential,” O’Shea said. Other Airpark businesses are getting in on the action too. El Santo Restaurant + Bar, which opened in May, will be hosting a Champagne & Tequila Lounge on site.  “Last year I was curious about the inaugural event. It was fantastic. Watching polo at WestWorld in conjunction with good food, champagne and DJs is one of the better ways one can enjoy a day in Scottsdale. We see October 20th as a way to extend our brand to the kind of people we have been seeing and want to continue to see at El Santo,” said El Santo Marketing Director Brian Ruede.  El Santo will also be hosting the polo teams for a Friday evening preview party, the day before the event.  Guests who don’t get a coveted ticket to El Santo’s lounge or the other VIP tents can still get close to the action at the Heineken Doll House Party Tent, Mark/Taylor Residential Bedroom Bar or Scottsdale Cigar Club Lounge.  A portion of the proceeds from the polo championships will benefit Work to Ride and Scottsdale Healthcare charities. In June, the Scottsdale City Council ratified a $75,000 tourism grant for the event, initially recommended by the city’s Tourism Development Commission. Rachel Sacco, president and CEO of the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, said the polo party is a strong addition to Scottsdale’s lineup. “It has the potential to grow into a signature event over the years,” she said.

The event was organized by the North Scottsdale Chamber, the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve in partnership with the U.S. Chamber and Hero2Hired. “The goal of matching Valley employers who have jobs with Arizona’s veteran and military spouse job seekers was met today at the Hiring Our Heroes event,” said Chamber Executive Director Joe Galli. “The ballroom at the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center was packed with Valley employers and several hundred job seekers. “The great part about this event is that some Arizona military spouses and veterans gained employment today, more gained a solid foothold for their careers, and even more learned skills and gained experience that will help them move up the employment ladder.” Galli gave credit for the event’s success to several state and national organizations, including the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, the U.S. Department of Labor, Arizona Department of Economic Security, Arizona Workforce Connection and the volunteers who helped with the logistics of the event.

Though the search for the perfect assistant is still underway, the Johnny G salon has evolved its “look book” with a 42-inch Apple TV for clients to view the style images that Grinsky prepares on his iPad. “I am also now videotaping my clients when I style their hair, then sending them the video of their styling lessons,” he says. “That way, they can take me home and have salon-ready hair every day.”  More:; 10201 N.

Butterfly Wonderland Coming to Scottsdale


on’t tell the kids just yet—because they’ll have to wait until spring—but Scottsdale will soon be home to Butterfly Wonderland, a world-class attraction with an indoor rainforest environment featuring the largest indoor butterfly pavilion in North America. Construction began Aug. 14 on the northeast corner of the 101 Freeway and Via De Ventura, with Butterfly Wonderland scheduled to open sometime in spring 2013. Visitors begin their journey with an entertaining, educational film showcasing the fascinating lives of butterflies. Then they get to the really good stuff: An artist’s rendering shows Butterfly Wonderland, now being built on five acres of land on the corner of the 101 and Via de Ventura. The facility will feature the largest butterfly pavilion in North America, according to developer Amram Knishinsky.

There will be a hundred different species of butterflies from around the world, including specimens from Costa Rica and the Philippines. The exhibit will feature waterfalls, koi ponds and flowering plants and trees on which the butterflies feed for nectar. Butterfly Wonderland will also have aquarium displays with marine life from the rainforest, a butterfly theater, a chrysalis laboratory, the butterfly gallery, a children’s play area and retail and café components. “Butterflies are perhaps the most universally loved creatures on earth, symbolic of peace, love and hope,” said Amram Knishinsky, principal partner and developer of Butterfly Wonderland. “Their brilliant colors, diversity of size and shape, remarkable life cycle and uninhibited patterns of flight give inspiration to folks of all ages. We feel extremely fortunate to be able to bring this joyful experience to the Valley.” The attraction marks phase one of “Odysea in the Desert,” a 522,000-square-foot, multimillion dollar entertainment district, which will include attractions, restaurants and retail developments located on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

That long-held goal could come to fruition, thanks to your perseverance and follow-through. Our present economic crunch requires you to make a financial outline for the next three months. Spend only on the essentials. GEMINI 5/21-6/20 You don’t like drudgery, but you may encounter some early in the month, particularly where authority figures are involved. Fortunately, your communication skills can make up for any unexpected adjustments. You’ll be seeing that drudgery in a different light by the third week. If work involves travel, there may be shorter, more frequent trips. Any networking scenes will work to your advantage, so be sure to attend. CANCER 6/21-7/22 Your energy and motivation will be restored in September, leading to a productive fourth quarter. Expect to spend more time at the office and less time at home. The week of the New Moon (17th) is favorable for making contacts and presentations as business seems to pick up or present new options. A chance to get out and professionally mingle with associates is a must for making yourself or services known. LEO 7/23-8/22 What’s on your agenda? It could be all about money and getting financial plans/goals set up for the next few months. Call your accountant and run through your lists of clients. Take inventory and carefully decide what you can keep, change or eliminate so you can function more efficiently. Expect to go in different directions as you encounter new opportunities near month’s end. VIRGO 8/23-9/23 You’ll feel brand new and so will your work. Get out your monthly planner and fill in the few empty spaces. September is productive and more successful. Review the past

year; you may want to make a detailed and timely marketing plan. Expect some changes in your working environment, office or company, as a shift is indicated. To release built-up stress, attend business or community functions on the 24th. LIBRA 9/24-10/22 It will take discipline on your part to stay put and finally wrap up long-term projects or commitments (1st-17th). The challenging times of recent years are ready to exit your life. Expect helping hands and financial changes. Further your personal interests and get back to networking. You excel in PR and marketing. You’ll be back in familiar professional territory by midmonth. The Full Moon ends your September with a more realistic financial plan set in place. SCORPIO 10/23-11/21 You’re in the spotlight and have a sense of control once more. Mars is now in your sign, making you more assertive and determined to succeed. Last month’s interferences have actually worked to your advantage. You can recharge through professional contacts. Remember, successes come through others, so attend functions. You may do an about face in appearance as you set out to improve or change your style of doing business. Get ready for a big venture in November.

renegotiate and rearrange a new game plan in detail before the second week, then put it into play by the New Moon on the 18th. One of your more proactive weeks begins on the 17th. Arrange meetings or presentations the week of the 24th, when combining business with pleasure allows you to use your friendly persuasion abilities. PISCES 2/19-3/20 Interacting with others is this month’s prime concern. Pay more attention to how others respond to your approach and how they interact with you. You can learn a lot and operate more effectively. Yes, presentations and negotiations will require more detailed arrangements. Bosses and high-maintenance clients may be more demanding than usual; don’t overreact. Expect competition, compromise and a change of priorities by month’s end. It will all bring better results. 

SAGITTARIUS 11/22-12/21 One of your favorite work-related activities is travel, and most of your month will be dedicated to out-of-town seminars, meetings or training, which will require careful scheduling to avoid extra hours. You can reconnect with people you’ve been out of touch with. Litigations can be concluded by the 18th or 28th. You may not have much personal free time until the third week. CAPRICORN 12/22-1/21 The first half of September may be your success story—both fulfilling and productive. Most transactions are favored. Expect to receive more support from others. You can regenerate your financial life through a new source or territory. Many new local businesses are opening and getting the support they need—including yours. Expect to make compromises following a slight shift of gears on the 20th. AQUARIUS 1/22-2/18 Look for ways to design a new image or marketing ploy. Reconsider,
