He had seven other siblings who all had a wonderful upbringing. Switzerland has a mandato- ry military service, so at the age of 18 Walter became part of the Swiss Army where he over- saw keeping inventory of all supplies checked out for trainings. When those items were checked back in, it was also his duty to make sure they had been taken care of and service those items, keeping them in working order. He worked three weeks on and then was off for three weeks and able to go home.
Walter met his wife, Rosemary, in Germany in 1952. They traveled the world visiting places like India, Africa, and South America. They fell in love with the United States and the wonder- ful and kind people. Walter became an American Citizen in 1966 and Rosemary followed a few years later. Walter and Rosemary lived in San Manuel, Arizona for almost a year while he worked for a company helping to build the San Manuel Power Plant in 1955. It was during this time that he and Rosemary decided they not only wanted to stay in the United States, but that they wanted to retire in the beautiful state of Arizona. In 1989 Rosemary and Walter moved to Munds Park where they both enjoyed their retirement together. Rosemary passed in 2005.
In 2009 Walter had a few questions, so he made his way to the Pinewood Fire Department. It was during that time that he got to know and made friends with Chief John Welsch. They spent time together during Chief Welsch’s weekends in Munds Park talking about the “good old days” and their common life experiences with their time serving in the army. From that point forward Walter has been a proud supporter of the Pinewood Fire District. It is not uncommon to see him stop by the station with Swiss Chocolate in hand making his way around and greeting each and every employee and wishing them a great day.

Pinewood News 7 July 2,2018 The food industry, especially the appliances that go with it, are as changeable and faddish as the auto or clothing industries. A few years ago when the food magazines started talking about an Instant Pot my first reaction was, “Oh no, not another appliance I don’t have room for one more thing in my closet”. I have all the toys from tortilla maker to egg poacher. When Pillsbury came out with an article on Instant Pots with advice, safety procedures, and a couple recipes I savored it. Much of what is written here comes from that article.
The Instant Pot is a multi use, programmable cooker that features the functions and capabili- ties of other kitchen tools such as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, cake maker, steamer, warmers and sterilizes. Not only that, it sautés and sears. According to the advertise- ments the only thing it doesn’t do is stack the dishwasher and wipe down the counter tops. It can be all of the following kitchen appliances. Pressure Cooker: This is probably the most used function of the instant pot and is touted to be safer than the orig- inal stove top version. The function of a pressure cooker is to cook food quickly with internal pres- sure and high temperature in a sealed pot. I grew up with a pressure cooker being used extensively. My Mother may have been the best seamstress west of the Mississippi but she found recipes and time management a mystery. With field workers to feed at a designated time various ingredients were tossed into a pressure cooker, the heat was cracked up to high and we hoped for the best. It’s a miracle neither my Mother nor I were seriously burned as the safety valve would often blow. We thought nothing of it and repainted the kitchen ceiling often.
Slow Cooker: This is my favorite appliance and I use a traditional slow cooker often. It’s been around since the mid 40’s; it’s an electric appli- ance that simmers food at a low temperature. It can be left plugged in and unattended for hours. It’s great for busy working people and people, like me, who want to come home to find dinner is waiting for them after a hard day at the bridge tables. Steam, sauté and sear: Instant Pot will steam your veggies easily; as well as sauté and sear the meat or poultry in the cooking pot.
Warmer: Great way to keep food warm for par- ties or family dinners. It does it all. In all fairness, I need to tell you I received a Facebook from a friend who sent me a lengthy article talking about fires started by Instant Pots. I’m probably not taking it as seriously as I should because this friend is a worrier and has sent me several notices of alien abductions. If you want to know more about this or have questions you can phone 888-891-1473. That phone number is for Instant Pots not alien abductions. I don’t have an instant-pot so I can’t recom- mend recipes I have personally used. However, after reading the Pillsbury article I phoned the test kitchens and asked for some more kitchen- tested recipes using the instant pot. Yes, there is an advantage of being an ex-employee. One Pot Spaghetti in the Instant Pot 1 pound lean ground beef 1 tablespoon olive oil Salt and pepper to taste 1 large onion, diced (approximately 1 ½ cups) 1 cup celery, chopped 1 cup carrots, chopped 2 cups beef broth 12 oz uncooked spaghetti 1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes (1) Turn instant pot on and press the sauté control to heat the oil in the instant pot. Add the ground beef, onions and salt and pepper. Cook for 8-10 minutes stiring occasionally. Add the cel- ery and carrots. Press the cancel control. (2) Add the beef broth. Break spaghetti in half and lay on top of the beef mixture. Evenly spread the tomatoes over the noodles. Secure lid and press the sealing control. Once pressure has built up press the manual control and let the mixture cook for 7 minutes. Press the cancel button, after the steam has dissipated, open the lid. Stir the mixture to coat the cooked spaghetti and serve. As I studied the recipes given to me by the test kitchen I noticed they all used the pressure cook- ing control, and none of them used the slow cook- er control. I then called Pillsbury back and asked, “Why?” This is what the test kitchen told me. The Instant pot will quickly cook the ingredients and “hold” for three hours. The timing is different because the instant pot is much faster than a slow-cooker and meat is cooked in 45 minutes to an hour rather than a 5 to 6 hour with a slow cooker. The test kitchens also suggest using any traditional slow cooker recipe in an instant pot. They also said, there are several ingredients that shouldn’t be put in a instant pot and most notable dairy produces. Things like sour cream, cheese, or milk tend to burn because of the high heat. This would include cream base soups or any recipe calling for a “cream of” soup. Most cream base ingredient needs to be added after the cook- ing is completed. Any tomato product needs to be the last thing in the pot before cooking - - as in the recipe above.
When using a favorite recipe in an instant pot you may also need to adjust the liquid level. All Instant pots need to start out with at least one cup of liquid to prevent burning and help the instant pot build pressure for cooking. You can use any liquid that goes with the other ingredi- ents from water to beer and wine. So having said all of this, I think I will wait to buy an Instant Pot and do some more research. I’m sure the instant pot is an excellent appliance and many love it. As I study this appliance fur- ther I will share what I learn with you. Both good and bad.

The Pinewood Fire District strives every day to provide the best Fire and Emergency Medical Services to the residents of Munds Park. Within that task, we also have to follow set state rules in order to stay compli- ant with the Arizona Department of Health Services, who issues our Certiﬁcate of Necessity, which gives us the right to have an ambulance service. As per State Statute A.R.S. §36-2239 (D) our ambulance service and mileage rates are set by the Department of Health Services based on the Labor Statistic inﬂation rates. Charges for services cannot be billed at a higher or prorated rate. If a service is provided, regardless if the patient refuses transport to the Hospital or if we provide services to a patient that takes 5 minutes or 5 hours, we can only bill and must bill the base rate. The only ﬂuctuating charge after the base rate is billed would be for mileage, and this charge is only billable if a transport to the Hospital happens.
Because we want to support the residents of Munds Park we also subsidize any portion of a medical bill not covered by the resident’s insurance. This means that regardless if your insurance company denies the whole medical bill or only pays a portion, whatever is unpaid will be written oﬀ for all residents. In order for the Pinewood Fire District to stay compliant with State Statute, we must bill for all medical calls. To do this portion properly we ask that our residents pro- vide their insurance information to our Paramedic/EMT’s for all medical calls, even if the patient refuses transport. From that point we can determine if the patient is responsible to pay the charges not paid or denied by the insurance company or if the patient is a resident and we can subsidize any remainder of the bill, but only after we do our due diligence of billing for the medical services rendered. If we do not follow the State Statutes, we could potentially lose our Certiﬁcate of Necessity (CON) and would not be able to provide any emergency medical services.
If you have any question’s please do not hesitate to call Mindy Mohler, Oﬃce Manager, at (928) 286-9885 or you can also direct your questions to the Arizona Department of Health Services at (602) 542-1025.

ROC #317019 RECRUITMENT CAMPAIGN LAUNCHES 9TH YEAR The Munds Park Business Alliance launched its effort to bring busi- nesses together to work towards the betterment of the community. With NUMEROUS signature businesses and dozens of local volunteers, the organization has made great inroads in assisting member businesses with referrals and building their business bases. Many of the business- es have enjoyed significant increases in their own revenues while also participating in several community outreach and enhancement pro- grams.
The Welcome Basket The Welcome basket program was one of the first informational seg- ments that the organization initiated. Fifty Welcome Baskets were delivered last week to Munds Park newcomers with loads of participat- ing business information, maps, gifts and coupons from the businesses. The baskets include a pamphlet highlighting all of the service and char- itable groups that work to make Munds Park the special community it is, as well as a variety of gifts supplied by the group. Member business- es are asked to submit their 2018 Basket information, gifts etc. ASAP so that the next fifty baskets can be put together for the delivery in July, August and September. Please turn in your Welcome Basket material into Len Friedlund at Provident Partners Realty Office as soon as you have the collateral ready.

18 Pinewood News July 2,2018 We have been asked a lot lately, “Doesn’t the Fire Department get their need- ed revenue from taxes each year? Why does the Auxiliary need to help the Fire Department raise more funds?” We thought we would give you all a little information to help you understand why the Auxiliary is so important to the Fire Department and the residents of Munds Park! The Fire Department’s revenue can be broken down to roughly being funded 55% by taxes, 5% ambulance income, 5% out of district income (wildland billing and vehicle stabilization billing), and 35% for grants, donations, equip- ment sales, lease income, contracted services etc. In years past, legislation not only put a cap on the millage rate that a Fire District could set for each fiscal year ($3.25 per $100 dollars assessed valuation of each home) but they also put into legislation a rule that regardless of a good economic year, the Fire District’s tax revenue could not grow by more than 5% from the prior year. These two pieces of legislation have made it to where Fire Districts struggle from year to year to get by and are not able to truly strategically plan for the future, with most Districts having to take out loans to finance things such as new vehicles, equipment and buildings. This means in the long run our Districts are paying more for items due to interest payments being added on top of the cost of those needed items.
The Pinewood Fire Districts strives to use tax payer’s money in the most responsible way and with the help of the Auxiliary they have been able to fur- nish the department with needed items that would have other wise been cut from their year to year budget because of not having the funds available. In the past few years the Auxiliary has been able to support the Fire District with new station windows, payment towards their new generator, new snowblow- er, helped make payments for new ambulance, safety cones and hose and to help support the extra events such as their Annual Kids Safety Day. This is because of the wonderful residents that support not only the Auxiliary but the Pinewood Fire District and neither party would be able to do it without you! If you have any other questions that either the Pinewood Fire Department Auxiliary can answer or the Pinewood Fire District, do not hesitate to reach out to us. You can reach Sharon Grether, Pinewood Fire Department Auxiliary Vice President, at 602-469-3956, or Mindy Mohler, Pinewood Fire District Office Manager, at 928-286-9885. Thank you again for your continued support. _ **Don’t forget to order your frozen “Take and Bake” Cinnamon Rolls all year!
Call Lois at 480-250-4140** Public Works Update By Mike Lopker, Deputy Director Coconino County Public Works Willard Springs Closing during Winter Months to Keep Station Open Next Summer Thanks to everyone who attended the spring Munds Park Community Watch on May 16. It was another great turnout for presen- tations and discussions about some very important topics. One of these was the County’s decision to close the Willard Springs Transfer Station during the winter season, which runs each year between November 1 and March 31, so that we can reopen the transfer station for the sum- mer 2019 season.
As you know, the County worked with Munds Park and neighboring communities for more than a year in a cooperative effort to develop an operational model designed to keep the Willard Springs Transfer Station open. As a condition of this model, the Coconino County Board of Supervisors required that the transfer station support itself with rev- enues collected at the gate. This did not happen in 2017, primarily due to Willard Springs’ very revenue-poor winter months. The Public Works team has been tracking seasonal usage trends at Willard Springs for a couple years now. By the numbers, the winter months simply do not produce enough revenues to keep the transfer station open from November through March. Currently, we are open two Saturdays during these winter months. Each Saturday costs the County a minimum of $3,500 per day to operate the transfer station. These costs include wages for the attendant, hauling collected material to the City of Flagstaff Cinder Lake Landfill, paying tipping fees at the landfill, site maintenance and burning/flipping the green waste pile each winter.
Revenue-wise, January was our worst month of the 2017/2018 win- ter season. Willard Springs only received a total of $155 in revenue dur- ing each Saturday of operation in January 2018. This revenue came from a total of 10 separate transactions each day, which was collected from fewer than 10 customers as some made multiple transactions to deposit garbage, recycling and/or green waste. The other winter months fared slightly better; however, none generated revenues that even came close to covering the station’s operating expenses. To keep Willard Springs open during summer 2019, especially for green waste collection, we will need to close the transfer station from November through March starting this fall. Given the 2018/2019 calen- dar, the last day of summer operations for the Willard Springs Transfer Station will be Saturday, October 27. The station will reopen for the 2019 summer season on Friday, April 5, 2019. For more information about the winter closure of Willard Springs please call Public Works Project Manager Ron Hollamon at 928-679-8300.

Hooray for the Fourth of July!!! America is having a birthday! Throughout the country we are celebrating, searching through our closets for something patriotic to wear. Red, white and blue everywhere you look.
There are parades and picnics, barbeques and baseball, hotdogs and hamburgers, potato salad and watermelon, and ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream. Political discussions are off limits. Kids reluctantly put away electronic things and find out what fun is. Bands play, baton twirlers strut their stuff. Veterans old and young march proudly down streets well lined with cheering spectators. Bewildered toddlers wave flags, grinning through painted faces. Pretty girls wave from crepe paper flowered floats, tossing candy and flirty smiles.
Come evening the skies are aglow with fireworks and well into the night we hear the sounds of pop pop pop. Our nation's capital hosts a huge celebration. People stand proudly, hands over hearts, singing to the Star Spangled Banner. An orchestra plays the stirring music of John Phillip Sousa. Watching on TV screens, our eyes are moist with gratitude that we are blessed to live in this great country. Just for today, we are not a nation of red versus blue. Today we are all red, white and blue. We are all Americans.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!!! Wilma Lentz

22 Pinewood News July 2,2018 Flagstaff’s Culinary Scene Gaining Traction Flagstaff’s draw has always been a casual lifestyle, which is now reflected in the restaurants cropping up in the historic downtown area. Young chefs and restauranteurs are mixing approachable menus and pricing points with knock-your- socks-off renovated spaces and fresh, local ingredi- ents to create experiences worth the windshield time. Flagstaff located on Route 66 and the rail line, once a stopover for those destined to somewhere else, is now an interesting food destination in its own right.
Flagstaff’s culinary scene is gaining traction as more restaurants pop up together in old neighborhoods that offer fun backstories and exciting places to dine. Young chefs and restauranteurs are choos- ing locations across or down the street from other successful eateries and breweries, creating a critical mass of innovative restaurants that are attracting attention. At one time “south of the tracks” was considered “the wrong side of the tracks.” Today, enterprising restaurant owners are selecting locations on Flagstaff’s “Southside,” and some chose to incor- porate influences of the cultures of Hispanic families and Basque sheepherders, who settled in this neigh- borhood, into their multicultural menus. One of the draws of the Flagstaff restaurant scene is the variety of local brewers. While some breweries are part of full-service restaurants, others collaborate with inventive restauranteurs to bring food into fun tasting rooms, or vice versa. The Flagstaff Craft Brew Trail boasts nine brew houses. Download brew trail passports and maps to collect brewery stamps and earn commemorative souvenir pint glasses at http://craftbeerflg.com. Another pull for food seekers is the caliber of young chefs that are bringing their talents to Flagstaff after working in cutting edge kitchens elsewhere. Some earned their stripes in James Beard-awarded kitchens in this country or Michelin-rated restaurants in Europe. Why are they here?
Many will tell you it’s the Flagstaff lifestyle with the outdoors just out the backdoor that drew them from fast-paced, metro careers. But don’t think that casual lifestyle is reflected in the kitchens. These talented chefs are pushing hard backstage to get Flagstaff recognized for its food. Flagstaff got its place on the international food map when Brix restaurant earned “Top 95 New Restaurants in the World” by Conde Nast Traveler in 2007. Since then owners, Paul and Laura Moir continued that success by opening Criollo Latin Kitchen, Proper Meats + Provisions and Grand Canyon Cafe. The couple’s collaborative efforts are built on the philosophy of local and sustainable foods. That Criollo’s (pronounced kree-OH-yo) Happy Hour is one of Flagstaff’s most popular is evidence that locals embrace the place named after the Spanish breed of beef cattle brought to Arizona in the 1400’s. Proper, a Southside neighborhood butch- er shop and casual eatery offers exclusively farm-raised meats from Arizona and cheeses, perfect for noshing or picnicking.
A half block up South San Francisco Street from Proper is the Tourist Home Urban Market. The restaurant gets its name from the building, a Basque boarding house abandoned for 40 years until the proprietors of the adjacent Tinderbox Kitchen and Annex Cocktail Lounge renovated the historic eyesore. The boarding house was built in 1926 by Jesus Garcia and his mother, Isabelle. During those years, Basque sheep- herder immigrants from the Pyrenees mountain range that separates France and Spain worked for more than a dozen sheep companies headquartered in Flagstaff. After extensive restoration, the space now serves as a tidy meetup spot for Flagstaﬀ hipsters who munch down breakfast (including the Hash Bowl of spiced beets, “Unstoppable Stacey” Travel Writer By Stacey Wittig potatoes, chorizo and eggs) or lunch of inventive salads, quiche or sandwiches. Back in the day, before leaving Spain, Sr. Garcia and his mother probably sam- pled renditions of the octopus and trout entrees now found on the Tinder Box menu. Eat up more Basque culture in the Annex’s out- door patio where a 40-foot-high sandstone handball court construct- ed by Sr. Garcia remains. The historic Basque ball court is one of fourteen remaining in the US and makes the outdoor drinking and noshing space even more enchanting.
Just kitty corner from Tourist Home, Root Public House, opened its doors as the latest bold, chef-driven restau- rant to open in Flagstaﬀ’s Southside neighborhood. Chef and co-owner David Smith jumped ship after years as Executive Chef at Brix. Focusing on familiar ﬂavors made with local and seasonal ingredients, his attention to presen- tation and pairings promise to make this light and airy, upmarket space – com- plete with rooftop patio bar – a Flagstaﬀ favorite. Three blocks oﬀ San Francisco Street on a forgotten section of Route 66 are Pizzicletta restaurant with an authentic Italian brick oven, and Mother Road Brewing Company housed in a funky industrial building. The two separate com- panies collaborate: Pizzicletta has Mother Road on tap, and the brewery oﬀers a tap room menu of tantalizing antipasto, artisan pizzas and salads brought in presto from the neighboring ristorante.

Unfortunately, I had not planned this part of my trip, so I didn’t stop too many places. It’s hard to spot places you would like to see if you just drive by. I did pull off and take a picture of one of the bridges and the water. In and around Marathon there were still signs of last fall’s hurricane. Piles of trees and brush on the side of the road and a couple of houses that had damage not yet renovated. The drive was nice and a definite do-over down the road. I got to Key West about 2 p.m. It was a little early for check-in, but they said it was no problem. My room was very nice with a small kitchen with microwave and small fridge. Within about ten minutes, two separate people came in my patio trying to find their rooms. Right then I decided it would be to my benefit to lock my gate! One of the things to do in Key West is to go to Mallory Square for sun- set and that is exactly what I did. I was surprised at all the Parking at Mallory Square. As I entered the parking lot, there was a younger guy with a panhandling sign. I admire his ingenuity. the sign read ... Need money for marijuana research. After I paid to park for more hours than I should have, I walked through Mallory Square and imagine that, I found an outdoor bar, El Meson de Pepe. I ordered Cap- tain and Coke and proceeded to people watch. Across from my bar stool was a small venue and two guys began set- ting up. I don’t remember who they were, but they were very good. After I had more than one or two drinks, I began adding conversation to my people watching. Don’t ask me what I talked about, I forgot that before I ordered another drink. I made some comment about my car and driving and the bartender told me we don’t talk about driv- ing at the bar. So, I gathered police hang out listening and then maybe arresting those who get in their cars! Well, to make sure I got home quietly, I left my headlights off! Don’t ask... I did get home with pictures of the sunset and the duo who sang for the people, and there was a plethora of people for the sunset. Some of the other things I accomplished from my bucket list was to go to the “Southern Most Point in the Continental United States. I visited Hemingway’s House and Truman’s Little White House. The first thing I did was take a Harbor tour. It was fun and interesting. I found out Havana is 94 miles from Key West; I saw more damage from the hurricane... there were a lot of boats that were just piled up waiting for owners to clean it up. For you Nascar fans, I saw Rick Hen- dricks’ house on the water in Key West. It is HUGE! Tru- man’s Little White House was interesting. President Truman loved poker and played a cou- ple times a week at least. Not sure how the citizens would react, a cover was made so the poker table could be disguised when not in use! I did not real- ize that President Kennedy met there with England’s Prime Minister before the Bay of Pigs. I could not take any pictures inside. I understand it is still considered a “Little White House,” and Presidents can visit. Truman loved this place and Key West, so he visited often. Ernest Hemingway’s Home was interesting. He had a studio over the garage where he did most of his writing. He lived there in Key West during his younger years. He looked nothing like the image we think of and the one that is the image of the Ernest Hemingway look-alike contest. The house and grounds held abun- dant representatives of Hemingway’s six-toed cats. It is an anomaly, and some have 6 toes, and some don’t. I had to go to Sloppy Joe’s Bar for two reasons: 1 – Kenny Chesney sings there (as well as other artists) and 2 – It was Hemingway’s Bar. Drinks weren’t cheap, but the music was good, AND I was asked to dance by an old biker (though probably younger than me). It made my day, even though I did not dance.
I rode both the Conch Train and the Trolley, and I got to see and hear about Key West. All of it in- teresting. For instance, the chick- ens running ALL OVER the place are protected and you can be ar- rested for harming any of them. The architecture of the homes is beautiful and were originally built by ship builders. There is the legend of a Catholic nun who built a Grotto on the Church grounds. She built it herself brick by brick. When it was finished she told residents that, as long as they worshipped and maintained the shrine, no MAJOR hurricane would DIRECTLY hit Key West. One of the Trolley drivers stated that even though he is not of the Catholic faith, he lit a candle just before he evacuated last fall.
There were so many other things to see and do that I know I want to go back to Key West. As I left Key West back up Highway 1, I stopped for breakfast and had the Seafood Omelet and it was AAAAAWEsome! Now I am headed for New Orleans by way of the Florida Turnpike Toll Roads. They are expensive and There are not a lot of hotels close to the highway... at least not that I saw. I had to get off the highway to find a hotel and that was feet from toll booth that I just had to pay. Toll people are different (I did not say troll). Next up NEW ORLEANS

By Larry Metzler, President, Munds Park Trail Stewards www.mundsparktrailstewards.com/ MUTS Munds Park Trail Stewards The Ghost Writer By Alessandra Torre Publisher: DCA 2017 by Sandy Wright Four years ago I lied. I stood in front of the police, my friends and family, and made up a story, my best one yet. And all of them believed me. I wasn’t surprised. Telling stories is what has made me famous. Fifteen bestsellers. Millions of fans. Fame and fortune.
Now I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me. This ﬁnal book? It's my confession. Romance author Helena Ross’s quirks have led her to a life of seclusion. She has purposefully pushed everyone away. But now, at 32, she is diag- nosed with cancer and told she has only three months to live. Desperate to get her ﬁnal and most important book written, she charges her editor with one task; get me a ghostwriter. Someone who can write well, match my voice, and be fast. She strong arms her editor to hire her sworn enemy and writing nemesis, Marka Vanske.
When the ghostwriter comes to Helena’s home, it’s exactly who she was expecting—but not at all who she thought it to be. The ghostwriter be- comes an integral part of Helena’s life for her last months. But it’s a battle. Helena is hard to like, much less work with intimately on such a project. She’s not just introverted, which many writers are, she’s cantankerous and bitchy. She thinks she’s more creative than anyone else. She insists that everyone around her follow her own rigid rules. She gets stuck in her writ- ing and forgets everyone and everything around her. She didn’t initially want to have kids, but her husband Simon convinced her to. She also wasn’t always the perfect mother, which her husband and mother used against her.
She is uncompromising, condescending, and angry. And yet we feel sad- dened by how she is living and how closed oﬀ she has become. What stems from the unlikely new pairing is an eye-opening, gut-wrench- ing, and heartbreaking journey. Helena has been hiding the truth for over four years, and it’s time to address the skeletons in the closet before it’s too late . Torre lays out Helena’s story perfectly. We slowly get to know the charac- ter, so intent on locking herself away from the world, even as she reveals why this last novel is so important. We watch her pick up one loose thread from the tragedy in her past, pull gingerly on another, a gentle tug that turns into more, until everything unravels and Helena’s secrets are bared. A few readers say they think this book is a slow read, but I disagree. It reads like a car in neutral headed down a steep hill, picking up speed bit by bit until the ending crash is inevitable. I admire authors who surprise me. The truth that comes out at the end of Helena’s story is a twist I didn’t see coming.
Ghostwriter occupies a sweet spot between women’s ﬁction and suspense. On the one hand, you’re trying to unravel the mystery. On the other, it’s a journey through what grief does to the human heart. If you enjoyed the various “Girl” books, or Jodi Picoult, deﬁnitely pick up The Ghostwriter. Alessandra Torre is an award-winning New York Times best-selling author of twelve novels, both romance and suspense. The Ghostwriter is her most recent novel.
Pinewood News July 2,2018 31 The Travails of I-17 Travail: noun [ usually plural ] UK /ˈtræv.eɪl/ /treˈveɪl/….."an unpleasant experience or situation, especially one that involves a lot of hard work or eﬀort" Sound familiar, folks? Like riding that two-lane Devils Highway that we call I-17?!? Most of us part timers here know the Phoenix - Munds Park routine well; try to get here early and stay later if possible to avoid the chaos. Also, check real time traﬃc conditions on the ‘AZ511’ website and, if you still end up in the I-17 gridlock, then for God’s sake, have patience.
Hey, here’s a thought: just RELAX during the drive! If the traﬃc is heavy or a major wreck ahead is causing a traﬃc jam, then what’s the point in stressing out? There is no shortcut and you are clearly not going anywhere soon. I recommend counting saguaros or road kills or, if traﬃc is frozen, release the kids into the desert to collect scorpions and throw rocks at each other. Better yet, spend your time agonizing over the list of infamous drivers in the list below and ask yourself honestly....do I do that? Yeah, I know, “No way.....but my spouse does!!” 1. Left Lane Lackies: Easily the most annoying drivers and my own personal pet peeve; they are quite content to drive signiﬁcantly below the ﬂow of traﬃc – while hogging the left lane - and refuse or are too oblivious to move over, allowing others to safely pass. Worse, they needlessly back up traﬃc thus encouraging the Butt Riders (see below) to execute their dangerous maneuvers which may result in the traﬃc jams noted above.
2. Butt Riders: Yup, they ride your tail ridiculously close and are equally as dangerous, often in a vain attempt to intimidate the aforementioned Left Lane Lackies to “MOVE THE H!%$ OVER!” 3. Road Ragers: These clowns are obsessed with following their own rules so don’t cross their path or you’ll be subjected to their angry outbursts such as raising a certain ﬁnger to say hello. 4. Nervous Nellies: Overly cautious, timid drivers that are too terriﬁed to pass a semi rig or they slowly maneuver mountain curves constantly braking, thus making everyone else around them nervous as well.
5. The Cut-ins: These buttheads wait until the last possible moment to abruptly cut in front of us during lane merging or speeding up from the slower right lane. They’re ex- cited to gain as much as three whole car lengths ahead of us more patient losers. 6. Texters: C’mon, we’ve all done it but still, distracted drivers are very dangerous. Texts can wait. 7. Speed Demons: They have their preferred speed limits well above the 85mph max (that normally won’t trigger a speeding ticket) so quite satisfying when they ﬁnally get busted.
8. Truckers: Most are true professionals and the safest drivers on the road since their careers depend on it. However, you don’t want to get stuck behind them. And why do some of them insist on passing slower vehicles on uphill grades and changing lanes during bumper to bumper traﬃc? Just sayin... 9. Lazy Loopies: Generally too lazy to bother signaling or following other standard rules of driving etiquette like moving left when possible for stopped vehicles on the shoulder. Argh. 10. Rubberneckers: They’re consumed with slowing everyone down to observe the most trivial freeway happenings. “Look at that, honey! There’s a man changing his ﬂat tire!” 11. Majority Rules: These are generally excellent drivers that rarely exhibit any (or most) of the traits noted above. Thank God these represent the vast majority of us. They must have cabins up north and just know better, huh? Oh, and why can’t every- one just drive like me?
Look for my next musing soon titled, ‘The Magic of Munds’. Until then, safe travails. MadJack. MADJACK’S MUSINGS MEDIA RELEASE: MVD Adds Features To Help Customers Get Voluntary Travel Id Map Has Added Feature To Help People Find Offices PHOENIX – With Oct. 1, 2020, fast approaching, the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division is adding more tools to make it easier for customers to find offices to obtain the Voluntary Travel ID. The Voluntary Travel ID is an Arizona driver license or ID card that meets the additional identification requirements of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. Standard Arizona licenses or ID cards do not conform to the federal REAL ID requirements because of a state law that says those steps must be taken voluntarily by the license or card holder. Obtaining the Voluntary Travel ID requires an office visit at an MVD or Au- thorized Third Party location. To ease the process, MVD added a new “Voluntary Travel ID Locations and Information” online link on the “Hours and Locations” page at azdot.gov/mvd. This convenient feature directs customers to nearby offices that provide Voluntary Travel ID services. Of- fice appointments can be made online through ServiceArizona.com. The October 2020 date is critical because that’s when the U.S. Trans- portation Security Administration will no longer accept standard Arizona driver licenses or IDs at airport security checkpoints. Fliers must have the Voluntary Travel ID or another form of federally accepted identification such as a U.S. passport.
“The Voluntary Travel ID is available at all MVD locations and 37 Third Party offices that are full-service providers,” said MVD Stakeholder Rela- tions Manager Jennifer Bowser-Richards. “We encourage customers to make an online appointment to get the Voluntary Travel ID, and we’ve added a link to clearly show which offices provide this service.” The cost is $25 for renewals and first-time issues. Per federal law, the cre- dential is valid for eight years. For a complete list of examples of identification documents and for addi- tional information, please visit the Driver Services section under Motor Vehicles at azdot.gov

ONE CAUTION TOO FEW By Pam Keating The Fourth of July. Who doesn’t love it, anticipate it and celebrate with whatever traditions come with the family. In Minnesota in the mid sixties, there were semi - strict rules for what could and couldn’t go bang. There were always a lot of bangs in our neighborhood. The neighbor’s dog was a high strung, Ameri- can cocker named Candy, short for Roman Candle, because she was born on the Fourth. She had a condition; she hated loud noises and always spent her birthdays shivering in a corner of the basement, poor thing. The neighborhood had lots of children and ours, the most recent addi- tion, were also the youngest. Our mirror-image twins, one right-handed, one left were three and a half still sucked their thumbs, and cried some, but were fun to play with. Of course they wanted to be part of the action. We decided they could handle sparklers as we adults supervised. They had seen sparklers and thought themselves pretty grown up to be allowed to hold them lit. We placed them, one in each right hand, told them to hold the six inch wires far away from their bodies, stand still, not too near any- one and watch.
They did as instructed with their blue eyes shining happy. As the sparklers burned down, close to their gripping hands, one very cautious twin, wanting not to burn her hand near the bottom, grabbed the already torched top only to brand her pointer and thumb severely, and, of course, it was her sucking thumb. It was a very sore thumb for a good, long time and oﬀered no pacifying solace from being sucked either. : : : 8 Travel cont’d from page 22 Savor a taste-worthy forest-to-table meal at Coppa Café where Chef Brian Konefal forages in the surrounding Coconino National Forest for mushrooms, greens and edible blooms that tantalize the taste buds. Chef Brian brings the wide spectrum of the forest to a modern food focus. He and wife Paola Fioravanti met at an Ital- ian culinary school and worked in Michelin-starred restaurants before taking the taste of Europe to Flagstaﬀ. Don’t let the strip mall venue or rustic, mismatched tables and chairs turn you away, the impeccable attention to each taste and pair- ing on the Chef’s Tasting Menu will leave you in gastronomic ecstasy. Another husband-wife culinary duo, Dara and Joe Rodger, just opened Shift Kitchen + Bar on San Francisco Street north of the tracks. The young chefs are pushing the Flagstaﬀ’s culinary comfort zone by creating weekly menus based on local food availability and their experience in the cutting-edge Denver culinary scene. Sit at the Chef’s Counter and watch them create dishes like Warm Brassicas Salad. You’re so close that you can ask, “What the heck is Brassicas?” The chefs are delighted to educate – their mission is to shift the way you dine out. Served as they are made, artfully-composed small plates promote sharing and create a com- munity atmosphere in this casual, pretention-free eatery. There’s a nationwide trend back to destination-worthy hotel restaurants, and Flagstaﬀ is no diﬀerent. Silver Pine Restaurant and Bar at Little America Hotel just went through a major facelift that includes a dazzling, new outdoor dining area with in-ﬂoor radiant heating. The feel is Aspen or Sun Valley ski resort and the reinvented menu reﬂects the addition of young, innovative chefs. Finish oﬀ your Flagstaﬀ foodie tour with a digestive at Flagstaﬀ Terroir, a wine bar with noshing and small plates. Their young cook creates from-scratch wine-in- spired ice creams and gelatos in a photo-worthy, revamped historic downtown space.

P.O. Box 17218 Munds Park, AZ 86017 Ilse and Alan Kitchen Are Honored With The 2018 PPOA "Good Samaritan Award” Alan and Ilse Kitchen are well known throughout the Munds Park community. Their constant participation in community events coupled with their helpfulness to other people and generous nature and spirit have resulted in the Pinewood Property Owners’ Association naming them the recipient of the 2018 “Good Samaritan Award.” Owners of HoneyDoo Jobs, the Kitchens were inaugural members of the Munds Park Business Alliance back in 2010 and have served the community since moving here.
The Kitchens have four adult children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchil- dren. They have been family people from day one and were always intricately in- volved in raising their children and giving back to the communities where they lived. Ilse was a community leader with 4-H club for twenty years, raising her chil- dren in that environment. Alan and Ilse also were the managers of Lisa and Linda’s fast pitch girls softball traveling team for many years and took the family camping often. Alan and Ilse have lived in the Alegria cabin for the last seven years(began renting in 2011) and soon plan to make it “their own”, with the help of daughter Linda Kitchen. They have always been very involved in the church wherever they were living. Alan and Ilse have volunteered in every capacity at the Munds Park Community Church and Alan served as an Elder for the church for several years.
While living in Angola, Indiana, Alan and Ilse worked together to help build “Friend- ship Park”, a wooden playground and activity center for the community. In Munds Park, Alan and Ilse worked on the Munds Park Business Alliance Beautiﬁcation Tree Program, The Welcome Basket Committee and the “Oktoberfest Celebration” hon- oring Rex and Margaret Sample upon their retirement from Munds Park Commu- nity Church. Now in their 80’s, the two of them are constantly on the go. A tight knit family, the Kitchens try and spend as much time together as a family as possible. From the Grand Canyon to Amsterdam, Indiana to Ari- zona, the family participates in mis- sion work, bible study and community enrichment every where they have lived.
Whether it is working the Fellowship Hall community luncheon, bringing meals to shut-in’s, making Teddy Bears for a cancer victim beneﬁt, working the church Pinewood Farmers Market booth or cooking something special for a com- munity function, Alan and Ilse Kitchen have been a role model and an inspiration to many people in the Munds park Community. They are truly the example of “Good Samaritan’s.” The PPOA is pleased to recognize Alan and Ilse Kitchen as the recipients of the 2018 “Good Samaritan Award." The Kitchen’s will receive a check for $100 from the PPOA in recognition of this notable honor.

Pinewood News July 2,2018 38 My eleven-year-old granddaughter, Abby, stayed with me at my cabin last week. None of the offerings for kids at the Country Club enticed her except volleyball, which was on a week she wasn't available to come up. When Abby had been up two years ago, she had bonded with Bobbie Bookout’s granddaughter, Amy, who was the same age as Abby. In March, I spoke with Bobbie about arranging for Amy to stay with her the same week Abby would be visiting me. We worked it out and we signed the girls up for sewing crafts at the Joann Fabrics in Flagstaff.
I was concerned that perhaps the girls would have grown apart after two years, but they clicked again after a few hours. I took them up to the classes the first day and helped them choose their fabrics and accessories. The classes were from 10 to 12:30, but several times it took longer. Marie, their teacher at Joann’s, guided them through the projects: half- aprons, felt purses, drawstring backpacks, and beach towels. Bobbie and I split the duties of taking them to Flagstaff. We took them out to lunch each of the four days they were in class. Bobbie and her husband John taught them the game “Farkle.” The girls did crafts at my cabin: decorating umbrellas with Sharpies, layered sand, home- made henna tattoos from a kit I’d bought on Amazon and making slime. We ended the afternoons with swimming at the Country Club pool.
Abby was tired at the end of the day and we spent quiet evenings at home eating dinners of hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and protein bars. We played Chinese Check- ers and Rummikub. She was too tired to read in bed, but still wanted me to sing her a lullaby, “White Coral Bells.” Amy and Abby got professional henna tattoos in Flagstaff. During lunch (at Oscar’s Burritos Fiesta of course,) they used my phone to search the Internet for the patterns they wanted. They were very happy with the results.
Amy had to go home on Thursday night, so I did have a full day with Abby alone. We decorated new white tennis shoes with a swirl/oil kit. We went into town and bought supplies from the list on her school’s website. Then we vegged out for a few hours before it was time to meet her parents at Black Bart’s. How many years will she relish coming to stay with Granny? I treas- ure each one. Preteens Can Be a Dream By Annie Weissman 17550 Munds Ranch Road, Exit 322 928-286-1309 CORN HOLE TOURNAMENT!

Pinewood News July 2,2018 42 LADY 18 HOLERS – PWGA By Patricia Dembowski June 14th – 15th the Eclectic Tournament was played. Over the two rounds of play, each player selected their lowest gross score per hole. Here are the results: FLIGHT 1 1st Yvonne Brooks - 75 2nd Kathy Kemp - 77 3rd Megan Reeves - 78 FLIGHT 2 1st Patty Frey - 77 2nd Margaret Dyekman - 81 3rd Lori Prescott - 83 FLIGHT 3 1st Carol Alyward - 88 2nd Nancy Oliphant - 93 3rd Brenda Scott - 95 June 21st the game was ABC Hero. A team game where the ‘Hero’ was randomly designated as either the A, B or C player. The Hero’s score was either counted once, twice or not at all. Here are the results: 1st PLACE - 124 Kathy Kemp Carol Aylward Deanna Madeya 2nd PLACE - 129 Yvonne Brooks Pat Cole Cathy Wendling 3rd PLACE - 132 Robin Alvarez Rhonda Hoge Darlene Drosky Aspirin and Elephants Reviewed by Clyde Morrison Aspirin and Elephants is an adult comedy about real people in a real situation. This play was put on by the Pinewood Country Club's Pinewood Players. Les Maurseth directed his first play for the Players and did a su- perb job. He had some new actors and some experienced ones and put them into a fine performance of this comedy. His ideas for a simple stage setting and the easy switch from cruise stateroom to other staterooms by the lighting changes made the play move right along without dead time be- tween scene changes.
The stars of the show were Joe and Gina Burton. They played an older couple who were taking their adult children on a cruise. Joe had many funny one-liners throughout the play and got the most out of them. He reminded me of Walter Matthau with his grouchy but lovable character with his voice and delivery. His stage wife (and real wife) Gina played his loving and understanding wife. My favorite scene for her was the time when she gave a monologue to her daughters, telling them a little history of her life with her husband. That almost brought a tear to this old reviewer's eyes.
The two brand new actresses, Stephanie Gale and Elyse Webber, fit right in as their two daughters. Stephanie was married to a successful, though controlling and thoughtless businessman. When she got her courage up in her talk with her father, the audience just wanted to stand up and cheer and say "Way to go girl. Right on." Elyse Webber played the sexy daughter who was also very successful but was married to a struggling au- thor. She loved her husband and did not want him to feel bad because she was so capable in what she did, and he could not get any of his writing ac- cepted. She was torn between accepting a new fantastic job and remaining a loving wife. Elyse was excellent in showing us that conflict. The two son-in-law’s also had difficult parts to play. Brian Cantrell was the unsuccessful writer who loved his wife's abilities but he felt com- pletely useless to her as her provider and helpmate. Scott Sustman, on the other hand, was a very successful businessman who could afford to keep his wife in furs and also keep a girlfriend happy. As a husband, though, he was a real bas--rd. However, in the scene between the two men and later be- tween Scott and his wife, he unburdened his true feelings. That was a com- plete reversal in his personality, but Scott was up to the challenge. This reviewer was impressed by all six of the performers' abilities in getting their characters across.
If you noticed that there were many new faces and few experienced ones, you were right. The Pinewood Country Club Board of Directors de- cided that the actors should be country club members. Experienced direc- tors and actors felt the directors (who spend so much of their time and effort on the plays) should be free to choose their actors from try-outs. The country club felt that their members should get priority for the parts. As a result, many of these experienced directors and actors that you have seen have stayed together. They do not want to be in competition to the country club so this year they are doing a mystery dinner theater at the Munds Park Community Church on July 1. I am told that this event is already a sell-out three weeks ahead. Good luck to both groups. Munds Park dwellers enjoy good theater.

Pinewood News July 2,2018 45 On Saturday afternoon, June 16th, about 30 Pinewood Country Club mem- bers and guests heard Eric Moore, owner of Jay’s Bird Barn, share some of his knowledge about birds in our area. Eric has three retail stores – Flagstaff (next to Michael’s near the Target shopping center on Milton), Sedona, and Prescott, where he lives full time. Although he always wanted to attend the School of Ornithology at Cornell University, life got in the way and he ended up working in retail. He turned that experience into his own business even- tually and now is a recognized businessman, speaker, and champion of all bird things in our state.
He started his presentation with a slide show of many of the local birds we see in the Arizona central highlands, which includes Munds Park and Flagstaff in the north. It was interesting to see the contrast between the male and female birds of same species. For example, while the male Red-Winged Blackbird is very distinguishable by the red on its shoulders, the female is often confusing – someone would think it could be a large nondescript finch. Some of the questions and answers he took from the very engaged audience: Question: What should we do when we find a baby bird on the ground? An- swer: Most of the time baby birds leave the nest when they are ready. Do not bring it into your home for care – better to leave it where you find it or place it in a bush or on the ground in a safer place nearby. Most likely the parents will come back and care for it. It is a myth that parent birds will not come back to their young if humans have touched it. They will, so don’t let that prevent you from placing the bird in a close by but secluded place. Question: Why do smaller birds chase larger birds? Answer: That behavior is called mobbing, and the smaller birds (such as a Red-Winged Blackbirds or Grackles) are trying to force the larger bird (such as American Crow or Red-Tailed Hawk), out of the area that most likely is the nesting territory of the smaller birds. American Crows will happily snatch eggs or baby birds from a nest, so mobbing large birds is a protective strategy. Question: What is the difference between an atricial and precocial baby bird? Most of our songbirds, such as Lesser Goldfinches and American Robins, are atricial – meaning they hatch nearly naked and blind and have to be cared for extensively by their parents for weeks. Precocial baby birds hatch with eyes open and have down feathers. Mallard Ducks, for example, are precocial – ready to leave the nest within hours and start searching for food with their parents.
Eric brought several show-and-tell items from his store, and one you might especially be interested in for the casual back-yard birder is the laminated fold- out of the 73 common birds found in the Arizona central highlands. It would be a great house-warm- ing gift for any new resident to our area or for grandkids to teach them the basics about bird identi- fication.

Pinewood News July 2,2018 47 MUNDS PARK COMMUNITY CHURCH UPDATE by Mike Sims www.mundsparkcc.org JULY 4TH As we gather our families around pa- rades and picnics this coming holiday, let’s not forget the fantastic freedoms we have as a nation. We can celebrate the birth of our great nation. Be sure to thank our veterans and re- member those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may have freedom. It is easy to become complacent in our society and take for granted our many blessings as a nation. Are we a perfect nation? No, but can you think of a better place. We are a nation striving to improve. Our found- ing fathers could imagine a better fu- ture for their loved ones. Mistakes were made along the way by humans who had a vision. We still struggle to come to grips with the “right way.” Embrace and respect diversity of opin- ions and backgrounds. We cannot move forward when we try to out- scream someone with whom we dis- agree. Try and understand another person’s position even though you may disagree. You may still not agree, but at least you have shown respect to the person and may have learned some- thing.
Christ gave the ultimate sacrifice for us to achieve eternal life. The mobs out- screamed him, yet his words live today as does the Holy Spirit. In John 16:12- 13, we read, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” Happy July 4th to every one of you! Have a safe and enjoyable holiday. And remember, No Fireworks, No Campfires and No Shooting!! CURRENT ACTIVITIES AA: Mondays at 7:00 pm in the fel- lowship hall.
