  • Helping your loved one with a new gadget

    Have you noticed an edge in your mother's voice when she says she couldn't open a picture you emailed her? Or is there more of an anxious tremor when she asks how to open “the text messaging.” There are good reasons for these edgy and anxious moments. Our loved ones know they're missing precious places to connect with us and they want to stay in the loop!To properly engage your loved one using technology, start by recognizing desperation. Gadgets that we consider necessary for bridging communication can inadvertently create an enormous gulf. The situation is akin to pioneering families who couldn't access a photograph from far-flung relatives because they couldn't read the directions for opening a trunk that holds it. They know the precious contents are there, but getting to them seems nearly impossible.Making this basic shift in recognizing frustration goes a long way in bolstering your patience with a loved one’s technology helplessness.The next step is to synch up with the loved one in some thoughtful way. For example, if your parents have a Gmail account, get a free one for yourself. That way, a missing email can be tracked down more easily. You’ll be able to give specific directions, like “Click on the folders” on the left side, “Do you see the folder called ‘Spam’?” “No?” “Click the word ‘More’ and ‘Spam’ should come up below the line.” These specific instructions are more useful when you can see an identical screen.They are a big improvement over issuing general directions like, “Check the Junk mail folder.” Your loved one might not be familiar with these terms or use the same synonyms that you attach to technology, “spam” and “junk,” etc. Even though your general directions make perfect sense, they will be more effective when they’re tied directly to the screen that your loved one is viewing.

  • Richardson: Busting pawn shop exemplified Mesa PD efforts

    “Mesa Mayor Scott Smith praised the investigation as an example of a Mesa police philosophy that targets career criminals who are responsible most crimes. He said crime in Mesa is down to a 40-year low and that street level drug sales are down 19 percent.”Arizona Republic April 15, 2014: "Police: Mesa pawnshop acted as 'marketplace for gang members"Mesa police took down the pawnshop after a lengthy undercover operation that led to 16 arrests and the seizure of almost 300 guns. The pawnshop was an illegal gun supermarket for known gang members.Mayor Scott Smith has every right to praise the Mesa Police Department and their philosophy to target career criminals who we know are responsible for as much as 90 percent of serious crime according to the U. S. Department of Justice. Smith also has every right to take a bow for his understanding of what good police work and leadership is and for his and the city council’s demands for excellence in policing in Mesa. They also get a big "atta-boy" for continued support of Mesa PD’s professional efforts to go after those who commit the crime.Mesa is a prime example of what can happen when the elected policy makers, especially the mayor like in Smith’s cases, take a leadership and supportive role in designing a safe community for residents, businesses and visitors.The fact that under Smith’s leadership crime is at a 40-year low in Mesa, and that’s with budget cuts and a decease in resources, is a testimonial to what can be accomplished when you combine good political leadership with good professional and empowering policing leadership. The policing leadership comes from Mesa Police Chief Frank Milstead, a veteran street cop from Phoenix who Smith selected to lead Mesa PD four years ago.

  • Keeping the Faith: Some memories need to go

    There is fascinating new research now being conducted in the field of “Superior Autobiographical Memory.” Researchers have found a small group of people, only about a dozen or so here in North America, which remembers almost everything about their lives. And when I say “almost everything,” I mean almost everything.For example, there is Louise Owens, a woman now in her late thirties, who can recall every single day of her life since she was 11. She can call from her memory most any detail of her existence down to every meal she has ever eaten, the exact clothes she wore on any given day, and when asked about a specific date, she can even tell you what the weather was like on that date.I would love to have more than a few conversations with this small but remarkable group. I would love to see them put their near super-human powers to work (or watch one of them demolish a game of Trivial Pursuit with a group of unsuspecting players).And I hope we learn a great deal about the human brain from them, maybe even make some advances in the treatment of Alzheimer’s or dementia because of them; but I do not envy them. No, I have a hard enough time trying to forget some of the things from my past as it is. I can’t imagine the mental anguish if I had Superior Autobiographical Memory.The things that lodge like splinters in our brains the deepest are those times and occasions when others have hurt us badly; when we have been wronged; or when we have been violated, mistreated, cheated or harmed. It is impossible to forget these things no matter how many times we are told that “time heals all wounds” and no matter how many times we are counseled by our pastor, priest, or rabbi that we should “forgive and forget.” Forget? No amount of counseling, therapy, hospitalization, or medication – nothing short of a lobotomy – could erase the pain from our memory banks.So most of us do not have to have invincible brain power to recall every day of our lives to suffer from the past; just a few of the days that we remember all too well are sufficiently painful enough. At least those few days are enough for me. The answer to this pain is not in the forgetting. The answer is in the forgiving. I don’t use the word “forgiving” or “forgiveness” glibly, because forgiveness isn’t easy. It certainly isn’t some buzzword from a sermon or a trivial, corny bumper sticker that says something like “Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.”

  • Gilbert teen beautifies neighborhoods by painting hydrants

    Several neighborhoods in Gilbert now look a little prettier thanks to some Saturday-morning efforts of a local Boy Scout and more than 30 of his cohorts.As part of his effort to become an Eagle Scout, 14-year-old Bryson Jones gathered 25 other Boy Scouts from unit 507 along with 10 adults to paint fire hydrants in the community. The collection of painters repainted 60 fire hydrants over the course of three hours on March 29.“It was a great opportunity to give back to the community,” he said.Jones, an eighth-grader at Mesquite Junior High School, said he picked the hydrants as his project because of the state they were in prior to his project. Several were all white due to prolonged exposure to the sun, and he said several were filled with dust and cobwebs.This isn’t the only community project Jones and his fellow Boys Scouts have engaged in, as Jones said in an email they have planted trees on two separate occasions and painted buildings for Sunshine Acres in Mesa. Like those projects, Jones said a fun perk of painting the fire hydrants is the opportunity to see the end result of the group’s efforts on a frequent basis.The practical purpose for these kinds of projects comes from necessity in becoming an Eagle Scout, and Jones still has a little more work to do to earn the designation. But the other point Jones emphasized was the youth factor, given the number of young people who opted to help him out with this project.

  • Chandler student’s play wins national recognition

    “Nerdy Nate and the Anti-Bullying Quest” is the story of Nate and Fred, who must save Prince Mirrorgaze from Master Bully in a tale of self confidence overcoming bullying.The play was written by Chandler’s Michael Ford, a seventh-grader at Basis Charter School.Ford’s play won Young Playwrights for Change – a nationwide playwriting competition sponsored by The American Alliance for Theatre and Education and Theatre for Young Audiences USA.“Nerdy Nate and the Anti-Bullying Quest” was the winner of the Childsplay and Rising Youth Theatre’s local competition, and was submitted to the national contest alongside 19 other regional entries from across the country. Ford’s play was selected as the winning script by a panel of nationally recognized writers and theater artists, including Paula Donnelly, Gary Garrison, Marty Johnson, Aba S. Kumi, Louis Sachar and Mary Hall Surface.“I am completely excited. I half don’t believe it,” Ford said. “I’ve won nothing like this before.”Ford’s play will be presented in a staged reading by up to four professional actors and a director at The Kennedy Center for their New Visions, New Voices festival on May 16 in Washington, D.C.

  • ASU Chaucer event celebrates medieval humor

    Arizona State University’s English department is about to get medieval.The 2014 ASU Chaucer Celebration — themed “Chaucerian Comedy and the Senses (of Humor) — focuses on 14th century poetry, storytelling, music and comedy. A series of events celebrating the work of Geoffrey Chaucer, the noted “father of English poetry,” will take place Friday, April 18, on the ASU Tempe campus.Best known for penning “The Canterbury Tales,” Chaucer is considered one of the most important English language writers. In the Middle Ages, English was the language of the commoners, while typical “literary” languages were Latin, Greek or French. Chaucer’s work changed all that.According to English professor Richard Newhauser, Chaucer is still relevant today because he was humorous and provided commentary on what was acceptable in society, often making fun of himself.“Chaucer was genuinely funny, and things we find humorous help define who we are and what groups we can relate to,” Newhauser says. “There is a range of human experience that makes Chaucer a classic, and it is why he is still being studied after 700 years.”The choice to celebrate Chaucer each April at ASU is an informed one; the earliest archival mention of his name described an Easter clothing purchase in 1357. The duchess for whom Chaucer worked as a court page bought him a cape, new shoes and pants, considered very fine clothing at the time.

  • Increase on pawnbroker interest rates could increase

    Individuals who borrow money from pawnbrokers may soon have to pay higher interest.Current law caps interest charged in these transaction at 8 percent a month for the first two months and 6 percent for every month afterwards. HB 2537 would raise the initial rate to 13 percent, with an 11 percent cap for the third and following months.Proponents said the cost of doing business has increased and caps have not been adjusted in years.HB 2537, which was approved by the Senate on a 22-8 vote, does require pawnbrokers to waive unpaid interest charges and hold pledged goods for members of the military who are on active duty until 60 days after that person returns from deployment. It now goes to the governor.

  • New rules on panhandling receive preliminary approval from senate

    The Senate gave preliminary approval to a new law on begging after a federal court last year ruled the existing statute unconstitutional.HB 2024 eliminates existing provisions that make panhandling a crime. Instead, it would be legal to approach people and ask them for money.But even this measure contains certain limits, barring begging within 15 feet of a bank entrance or automated teller machine. Also off limits would be begging on a bus or trolley or within 10 feet of a bus stop.The measure, which already has been approved by the House, also bans “aggressive solicitation,” which includes refusing to go away after being asked.

  • Legislation to shift requirements to drive three-wheeled vehicles gains house approval

    With only one dissenting vote the state House approved legislation Tuesday allowing motorists to drive certain enclosed three-wheeled vehicles without having a motorcycle license.SB 1201 is being pushed by Elio Motors which hopes to market such a vehicle here. While it's enclosed like a regular car and has a steering wheel, it is currently classified under Arizona law as a motorcycle, meaning would-be drivers need to take a separate test and get a special license.The same measure also gives legal status to “quadricycles” – four-wheel pedal-driven bicycles which can accommodate up to 14 passengers. A Tucson-based company makes them and leases them out, with a driver, for parties and similar events.Rep. Eric Meyer, D-Paradise Valley, voted against the measure because the law would permit the passengers, who also can pedal, to drink while driving around town. The measure needs final Senate approval before going to the governor.

  • House bill would offer tax breaks for landowners who lease property to churches

    Landowners who lease property to churches would get a big tax break under terms of legislation given Senate approval on Tuesday.Current law sets the taxable value of church-owned property used for religious purposes at 1 percent of its “fair market value.” By contrast, residential property is assessed at 10 percent of its property; commercial land has a 19.5 percent assessment.HB 2281 would apply that 1 percent assessment rate in cases where churches rent their space, with the presumption the property owner would pass along the savings to the church.Sen. Ed Ableser, D-Tempe, argued that lower property taxes paid by some mean higher taxes on everyone else to make up the difference, but Sen. Steve Farley, D-Tucson, said it's only fair, saying there's no reason that churches rich enough to own their own buildings should get a tax break that's not available to congregations that have to rent.The 16-14 vote sends the measure to the governor.

  • Mesa company bans workers from smoking

    A Mesa company has banned employees from smoking on and off the job in an effort to save on annual health insurance costsLee Benson, CEO and owner of Able Aerospace Services, began banning smoking in 2010 and fires its employees if they do decide to smoke, according to a report from the Phoenix Business Journal.“We drug test for nicotine,” Benson said. “If they smoke, we fire them.”The policy saves the company between $750,000 and $1 million annually, according to the report.When first enacted, Benson gave workers six months to quit smoking and 10 workers left the company due to the no smoking policy, the report says.Able Aerospace Services repairs and refurbishes airplane and helicopter parts at its shop at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and employs 360 workers, according to the report.

  • Frozen food makers plan PR push as sales slip

    NEW YORK — Frozen foods are about to get some badly needed image therapy.With sales slipping in the category, frozen food makers are in the final stages of preparing a major public relations campaign to defend the nutritional reputation of their products. The push will include what are said to be the first national TV ads on behalf of the industry as a whole, as well as social media and in-store promotions.Kraig Naasz, president of the American Frozen Food Institute, confirmed that the industry trade group plans to launch the "multiyear, multimillion dollar" campaign in early May.He declined to provide details but said the thrust of the campaign would be to educate people that the freezing process is just a way to hit the "pause button" to lock in the nutrients, quality and taste of fresh food. It's the biggest marketing push on behalf of the industry to date and the first to include national TV ads, according to the American Frozen Food Institute.The group, based in McLean, Va., represents companies including Nestle USA, which makes Hot Pockets, Lean Cuisine and Stouffer's, and ConAgra, which makes Healthy Choice and Marie Callender's.The campaign comes as Americans are increasingly reaching for foods they feel are fresh. That has hurt the performance of many frozen foods, which are often seen as being processed and full of preservatives or sodium.

  • Lawmakers seek federal approval to impose yearly restrictions on Medicaid recipients

    State senators voted Tuesday to require state officials to petition the federal government every year to allow Arizona to impose new restrictions on Medicaid recipients.HB 2367 seeks to impose a requirement that those getting government-provided health insurance be working, actively seeking employment or attending a job training program. Exemptions would be available if the person is sole caregiver to a family member younger than 5 or is getting long-term disability benefits.The legislation also seeks to impose a five-year limit on benefits. But it does say that does not apply if the person is working at a low-wage job whose earnings still qualify him or her for the coverage. The House already has approved the measure.

  • Start grilling season with the classic patty melt

    One of my favorite big city comfort foods is a staple of the diner scene — the patty melt.According to lore, the patty melt originated in California as a burger topped with fried onions and melted cheese served on grilled rye bread. Of course today, the patty melt comes in all manner of variations, including many grilled cheese-style versions done indoors on a griddle. But now that the weather is warming up, it's the perfect time to try my version of the original — the grilled patty melt.The first step in making a perfect patty melt is to shape your patty to fit the size of your bread. This results in an oval-shaped patty, but ensures that every bite has all the good stuff — grilled beef, caramelized onions, melted cheese and toasty rye bread. I like to use lightly seasoned ground sirloin for a lean but rich, beefy flavor.The classic patty melt calls for Swiss cheese, but I have noticed that many diners are opting for American cheese to get that ooey-gooey melted texture. I prefer the flavor of Swiss cheese, but if you really want that wet, melty experience, I suggest a combination of Swiss cheese for flavor and American cheese for texture.Finally, I up the ante on the onions by accenting them with tangy balsamic vinegar. I find the vinegar adds a depth of flavor and cuts through the richness of all the other layers of the sandwich. It also eliminates the need for a tangy condiment, like the Thousand Island dressing that sometimes is served alongside the sandwich.Use the best quality rye bread you can find, one with a slightly chewy crust and a dense crumb. The lighter the bread, the more difficult it will be to contain all the layers of the sandwich. And it is all the layers that make the patty melt so delicious. It is the classic example of the whole being so much greater than the sum of its parts.

  • Bill would give terminally ill patients access to non-FDA approved drugs

    Terminally ill patients could get access to drugs that have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under the terms of a measure given preliminary Senate approval Tuesday.HCR 2005 permits but does not require manufacturers, health care institutions and doctors to make certain investigational drugs and devices available. Eligibility would be limited to those with a disease that, without life-sustaining procedures, will result in death in the near future “or a state of permanent unconsciousness from which recovery is unlikely.”Only those drugs that have been through at least the first phase of FDA testing – meaning they have been screened for harm – would be available. Federal procedures usually require four stages of investigation.A final Senate vote puts the measure on the November ballot where voters get the last word.
