1 F O O R P t h g i r 6 1 / 5 2 / 4 By Bill Dougherty
Several weeks ago I learned of the passing of 2005 Fabulous Phoenician Ruth Downs. She was 95 and she, like her husband Hugh who was by her side at her passing, lived a life few could imagine. In 2004 another Fabulous Phoenician Jeanne Herberger suggested to me that my wife and I join them for dinner with the Downs. Jeanne thought that Ruth and Hugh would make excellent candidates for the lifetime achievement award started by this publication in 1982. While I knew them both only to say hello, I was very aware of the work this great and very famous couple had done since they moved to Arizona in the late 1960s. We met at Lon’s at the Hermosa Inn and the rest became Arizona history.
Many think of Hugh Downs as a pillar in the broadcasting field such as I did. However, I was totally unaware of how amazing Ruth was as well. Following her schooling, she became a highly decorated WW II Naval Intelligence Undercover Operative. Something she casually talked about, as if it was nothing, over cocktails during dinner. She then became a radio actress where she met and married Hugh and together they raised two children. Ruth produced films and documentaries throughout her life but never really wanted to call attention to herself. Hugh, however, told me that he truly believes the success he achieved came directly from Ruth. Her strong knowledge of the industry, mixed with her incredible sense of humor, made her a force to be reckoned with. She oversaw most of Hugh’s daily activities on and off air and gave great and lasting input into his network contracts for more than six decades. Many remember the famed needle works store she opened in Carefree in 1970, Ruth Downs LTD. There she showcased works from around the Southwest and the world. Her work in television and film documentaries also continued to soar for another three decades. The first time I dropped by the Downs’ beautifully decorated home in Paradise Valley, I was overwhelmed by all the toys inside and out. It looked like a huge children’s playground. Ruth just smiled and said “what can I say, I simply adore our grandchildren.” I’m delighted that this publication had the opportunity to honor this fine lady and her husband for their amazing humanity, generosity and kindness. People like Ruth Downs are a special breed of beauty, talent, charm and wit. She had an extraordinary life and she will be missed.

La Dolce Vita The Season October to May People are talking about the serendipitous cocktail party held at The Western Spirit Museum of the West in Scottsdale a few weeks ago. We’ve decided that there are far too many events where people are expected to show up, socialize and then write a check. While fundraising is vital to our existence, we thought it might be nice to gather people just for fun. What a great idea! Last year Missy and Lyle Anderson were so kind and generous to open their beautiful Paradise Valley estate to all of our Fabulous Phoenicians and Trendsetters. The party was a huge success. This year Melissa Turner suggested the recently completed Western Spirit Museum of the West. One look at this splendid and masterful piece of architecture and its’ amazing collection of art, memorabilia and relics had us totally sold. As many as 150 people accepted the clever invitation to our big night. Hand-crafted by Paper Princess Nancy Silver, the “No Agenda Cocktail Party” as it is now known, brought out our new Trendsetters: Jan Cacheris, Billie Jo Herberger, Cheryl Londen, Tahnia McKeever, Deborah Pshebniski, Leslie Rich, Mary Ann Sheely, Kristine Thompson and Candice Wiest. Sue Glawe, who was previously announced, had to take a rain check for the honor until 2018. Ms. Glawe has been so tied up at Blue Cross/Blue Shield that she asked to postpone. Laura Grafman our Fabulous Phoenician
By Bill Dougherty
for 2017 was there with her lovely daughter Lynn Lancaster and they seemed to know everyone in the room. Are you surprised? No you’re not! Vincent on Camelback, which by the way has totally mastered the art of passed hors d’ oeuvres a preferred way of serving at the museum, was amazing that night too. We are so lucky to have Leevon and Vincent Guerithault in our community along with their amazing manager Amy Fox. Their generosity and kindness mixed with some of the most award-winning food in the Southwest was a huge treat for all our guests. We also want to thank Kristy and Tim Moore of El Chorro fame, who have aided us yet again for this big bash. What a great community we live in! If you haven’t seen the museum, I strongly suggest you stop by. It will simply blow you away. We had the opportunity that night to preview an exhibit that Legacy Gallery was a great part of. Speaking of the famed Scottsdale galley, Jinger Richardson, together with Susie Wesley, Betty McRae, Pam Overton Risoleo and Darlene Keller Price, of the Trends Charitable Fund Presidential Board were tremendous in their efforts to make our second annual party come off without a hitch. You should have been there!
Anyone who knows Sarah Suggs of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute, or for that matter, Gena Bonsall and Penny Gunning would immediately recognize that the talents among the three of them are always a recipe for success. Anyway, they pooled their gifts and managed to get the iconic Lesley Stahl of CBS News fame to address a recent luncheon. The Conference Center at the Arizona Biltmore Resort proved the perfect venue for the sold out event. Ms. Stahl, who was in town touting her bestselling book Becoming Grandma, had the audience in stitches for most of the afternoon; with newsroom antidotes, grandmotherly tips and a breezy speech which left everyone in awe. I had the opportunity to speak with this great lady, thanks to Ms. Suggs and her savvy PR background. We spoke of everything from the 1972 Watergate Hotel break-in, the single event that launched Ms. Stahl’s career. We talked a lot about grandparenting, something that was very near and dear to the journalist. However I think Ms. Stahl was a bit caught off guard when I asked her about the now closed website she started with publisher Joni Evans, columnist Liz Smith, author Peggy Noonan and advertising legend Mary Wells Lawrence. I’ve always credited Mrs. Lawrence for my pathological obsession with the airline industry, dating back to her 1965 Braniff International ad campaign. You might remember that she took a little known carrier, hired Emilio Pucci, Alexander Girard and Herman Miller and revolutionized the airline industry overnight. Even today it is still viewed as the single most successful ad campaign in advertising history. For the next two decades everything Wells, Rich, Green touched would turn to gold. Mrs. Lawrence
would go on to marry Braniff’s CEO Harding Lawrence, entertain at homes in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Tucson, Dallas and New York. The term “power couple,” was first applied to the Lawrence’s long before it became a household catch phrase. When I suggested to Lesley Stahl that she interview Mary Wells Lawrence for 60 Minutes, she simply said “we’re too close.” Lesley Stahl was simply amazing! Perhaps the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute might consider Mrs. Lawrence for an upcoming affair since she’s equally iconic to the lovely and very beautiful journalist with whom I got to spend the afternoon? Stay tuned, there’s always more. In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That it’s high time a group of ladies ditch the selfies, get off social media and concentrate on the task at hand. The entire social community is making fun of them. That a well-known philanthropist played good Samaritan to an out-of-towner so he could return home wheels and all; a shining compliment to the great company. That a highflying couple loves everyone’s invitations to expensive restaurants but never reciprocates. That a small but mighty charity better get their act together and stop firing everyone who chooses to disagree with the development director and CEO. That two back-stabbing socialites are now best friends, so don’t turn your back. That a PV socialite is still in grave danger of her much reinvented spouse and probably is still totally unaware. Now you’re all caught up for the next 15 minutes.

60 Minutes with Lesley Stahl Interview by Bill Dougherty
In 1972 Lesley Stahl was hired by CBS after a short stent at a local news station. Over the next several years, she would sky rocket to overnight fame during the Watergate break in and subsequent trials. She would become the White House Correspondent for the network, join Face the Nation and become a ground breaking force at 60 Minutes. We had the chance to speak with this lovely and Iconic lady at the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute Luncheon. Here’s what she had to say. Tell us about the book you just completed Becoming Grandma? The book explores becoming a grandmother in today’s society. We look at the science involved including brain waves, the neo oxtoser. You’re essentially hit by a jolt and it’s the most overwhelming expectance one can ever imagine. Your life changes forever. You conducted a lot of interviews for Becoming Grandma? I had the opportunity to go back and look at the role of grandmothers and grandfathers and the relationships they built with their grandchildren. When you have children, they come with strings attached. The relationship can often be taxing. However grandparents are wired to love unconditionally. I interviewed as many people as I could. My relationship with my daughter and husband have both changed since we became grandparents. But the toughest interview I conducted was with my son-in law’s mother. That was the hardest interview I’ve ever done. We laughed together, we cried and eventually ironed out our differences as grandmothers. What is your connection to Arizona? In 1972, CBS sent us to various locations in the U.S. to report on the returns of the election between Richard Nixon and George McGovern. Dan Rather took the Mid-West, Roger Mudd the South and Mike Wallace the East. I was assigned to the West. Imet Barry Goldwater, an amazing gentleman. He took me up in his plane and showed me the state. He knew and loved each spec of Arizona. Every time he wanted to show me something, he would zoom down on it. It was quite a thrill! My husband is from Tucson and like many others, I fell in love with the saguaro. I love Arizona. It’s so beautiful and it’s good to return. What was you first big break? CBS assigned me to the Watergate Hotel break-in. At first the networks and papers thought little of the story. I was determined to stay on the story and my colleagues encouraged me not to walk away from it. I’m glad I stayed on Watergate, it changed my career. Who granted you your first big interview? During Watergate, John Dean of the White House Council was in hiding. Many of us camped out at his house to no avail. After the other journalists left, I hid in the bushes and lingered. When I thought it was finally safe I knocked on the Dean’s front door.
John opened the mail slot fearing television cameras and I conducted his first interview. We talked through the mail slot for more than an hour. I returned to CBS and broke the interview live. It was my finest hour. Who would you have liked to interview? Nancy Reagan, because I truly believe she is completely misunderstood. She was so protective of her husband’s presidency and I’m convinced that she was actually running the country. Bill O’Reilly interviewed me in great depth for Killing Reagan regarding the very guarded former First Lady. My interview helped him tremendously in his efforts to understand Nancy Reagan and the things she did. Nancy Reagan to me is an enigma. There was a side of her that people seldom saw. She was a practical joker with a witty sense of humor. Mike Wallace, one her closest friends, interviewed her on 60 Minutes shortly before her departure from the White House. She didn’t like his questions and the interview went south very quickly.

NO AGENDA COCKTAIL PARTY For the last two years, Trends Magazine and Trends Charitable Fund have stopped to thank all our Fabulous Phoenicians and Trendsetters. This year Melissa Turner suggested we migrate into Scottsdale and peruse the Western Spirit Museum. Vincent on Camelback did a fantastic job with food, spirits and sweets galore!

Jinger Richardson, Darlene Keller-Price, Susie Wesley and Betty McRae of the TCF Presidential Board of Directors made sure guests had the opportunity to tour the magnificent museum which is located just South of Indian School Road. You need to visit. It is simply amazing!

PETS OF THE MONTH
Paulie A bubbly personality and adorable looks have led this 15-week-old kitten to become the most popular kitten at the Arizona Humane Society. Though he’s loving and boasts a thundering purr, Paulie is always raring to go, is slightly mischievous and instigates rambunctiousness by batting around toys, clambering up cat condos and playing with other friendly cats. He also enjoys the company of dogs and kids. Meet Paulie at the Arizona Humane Society located at 9226 N. 13th Avenue in Phoenix. His adoption fee includes his neuter surgery, vaccinations and a microchip. He may have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter, but you’ll find many other pets available for adoption at www.azhumane.org. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal number A544039.
Zeus On neighborhood walks, Zeus strains at the leash to greet anyone who flashes him a smile. If his wellfurnished mustache and expressive eyebrows don’t steal your heart, his charming and playful personality will. This 9-month-old miniature Schnauzer greets everyone with uncontrollable excitement, an abundance of kisses and a perpetual nubby tail wag. Loaded with energy, this busy body will need plenty of toys to chew, a brisk walk every morning and night, several rounds of indoor fetch throughout the day and a bit of basic training. He responds well to a patient coach with a pocket full of treats. Meet Zeus at the Arizona Humane Society located at 1521 W. Dobbins Road in Phoenix. His adoption fee includes his neuter surgery, vaccinations and a microchip. He may have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter, but other adoptable pets are listed at www.azhumane.org.

ESCAPE TO THE CAPE Hanger One provided the perfect late winter backdrop for the Beach Ball 2017. This year the attire called for Kennedy Chic. Most think of Jackie and Jack Kennedy when they think of chic from that era, so everyone dressed accordingly. No pill box hats or Ivy League suits made the scene, but that’s a whole other story. The night proved to be even more successful than anticipated. A tremendous amount of money was raised on behalf of Phoenix Children’s Hospital. You should have been there! Kristen and Jason Rowley

Hidden Ones by Marcia Fine Reviewed by Diane Wootton Award-winning novelist and Scottsdale resident Marcia Fine has released her seventh book and fourth historical fiction novel “Hidden Ones: A Veil of Memories.” In Mexico, Peru and Columbia; the Inquisition was in operation from 1649 to 1854. Jews and Protestants who practiced Catholicism, called “Cisneros” in public, but practiced their religion in secret were punished with imprisonment and death at the stake by the authorities of the Church and local governments. Hundreds of thousands were victimized, tortured and killed. This is the fictionalized story of one Jewish family, the Crispins whose grandmother, Clara, is imprisoned and tortured for five years. Her granddaughter; Celedaria, approaching womanhood, is also under suspicion and imprisoned. Their stories are told in alternat-
ing chapters. On Friday nights, the drapes are closed, candles lit, Jewish texts brought out from secret hiding and seders furtively led. Celedaria is looking forward to marriage and is betrothed to a fellow Cisnero. When Clara is finally released due to a large bribe, the entire family dares discovery in attempting escape northward to New Mexico, a safer and more politically liberal area. The author has researched the culture of the era; including the cuisine, farming practices and family occupation. She details their strengths and endurance in this period of extreme religious intolerance. Based on transcripts from the Inquistion and records from SouthWest Territories, this book details one of the most obscure and dramatic episodes in Mexican and Jewish history. A
great read for those who want to learn more about religious persecution and its longterm effects.

The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis Reviewed by Diane Wootton Fiona Davis’s debut novel, “The Dollhouse,” is a nostalgic tribute to mid-century New York City, combining both mystery and romance. It features the famed Barbizon Hotel whose noted residents included Grace Kelly, Joan Didion and Sylvia Plath; among others. The Barbizon Hotel for Women housed aspiring models, secretarial students and editors – all hoping for fairy-tail success. The hotel was akin to a college dorm; with strict curfews, parental hours, draconian dress codes and rules of comportment. It was a Godsend for well-to-do parents who were reluctant to unleash their daughters in Manhattan. Darby McLaughlin arrives at the Barbizon from a small Ohio town: plain, self- conscious, homesick and convinced she cannot measure up to the beautiful models on her floor. Darby has strict orders from her mother to excel at the Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School. While struggling to adjust and succeed; she is befriended by Esme, a maid at the Barbizon. Life then takes an exciting turn for Darby. She is introduced to a new side of New York; the sounds of bebop, heroin usage and a blossoming love affair. But tragedy intervenes at the Barbizon. What is the identity of the victim? Was it murder, suicide or an accident? A modernday sleuth, now living at the present-day condoized Barbizon, is determined to unravel the mysteries. Twists and turns are interwoven to create a good old-fashioned suspense novel.
