Prep & Pastry stuffing stomachs at new east-side location While some may call it the next hip trend, the breakfast restaurant is an undeniable staple within the food industry. While by no means a new concept, specializing in a hearty morning meal is often the quickest way to the heart of many a Tucsonan. This time-honored tradition is being carried out at Prep & Pastry, which opened its second location on the east side of town on July 5.At the helm of Prep & Pastry, and sister restaurant Commoner & Co., are business partners Nathan Ares and Brian Morris, local restaurateurs with a deep-seated interest in not only providing high-quality meals but improving the city’s ever-growing food culture. Having opened the first Prep & Pastry a few years ago and establishing a strong presence in Tucson Morris said the community—particularly when Commoner opened—was begging for an iteration of Prep & Pastry out east. “We really didn’t put up a grand opening or a now open sign, we just kind of let word of mouth spread—a post here and there—but our weekends have been really great,” Morris said. “Just through the word of mouth and it’s been awesome; it’s really cool to see.”Not wanting to make any changes to a good-thing-going, Ares said that the menu is the same at both locations. While there isn’t any $3.99 early-bird special, the pricing is quite competitive with more traditional hole-in-the-wall breakfast joints popular throughout Tucson. What Prep & Pastry is best known for is the food, though the occasionally long wait has often been experienced at the smaller central location. Ares said that isn’t the case on the east side considering the new location sits 40 more people. Tucson Local Media announces passing of employee Vicki Serna On July 22, Tucson Local Media lost employee Victoria Ann Serna.Vicki (Kiki) was born March 3, 1962 in the small mining community of Morenci, Arizona. She attended Morenci schools and graduated from Morenci High School in 1980. She participated in many school activities such as marching and concert band. She was a member of the tennis team. She received most of her sacraments from Holy Cross Catholic Church in Morenci. After graduation, she moved to Mesa to continue her education at Mesa Community College and Arizona State University. She was employed in local print medias, including the PennySaver, East Valley Tribune, Clipper Marketplace and at Tucson Local Media until the time of her death. Vicki was loved by hundreds of co-workers. Vicki loved her faith, her family and friends and her dog, Theo. She was an excellent cook. We loved her prepared dishes at family gatherings and football Sundays. She loved movies, but just the funny ones that made her laugh. Forget the tear-jerkers. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band was her favorite rock group, though she loved all types of music. She never missed the Boss when he played in town. She attended his most recent concert in March of this year with some dear friends. She loved to play card games with anyone willing to compete against her, mostly her little nephews and nieces. She has funny and witty and always ready to exchange jokes and riddles. Vicki was part of a “bigger than life” family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Reyes and Julieta Serna. She is survived by her brother, Larry Serna and her sisters, Patricia Hernandez and Christine (Bud) Corn. She was loved by numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles and their families. Her friends numbered in the hundreds. We will miss her so much but we will be better people in this life because she so lovingly touched ours. Her family encourages donations in her name to the National Stroke Association, 9707 Easter Lane, Suite B, Centennial, Co 80112. Gladden Farms Elementary celebrates opening More than 300 people turned out Wednesday, July 20, for the ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Gladden Farms Elementary School, the newest school in the Marana Unified School District.MUSD officials, along with representatives of the town, the builders and the community were on hand to celebrate the opening and tour the new building. “It is very exciting as a board member to be able to come and share in the opening of a school,” said MUSD Board President John Lewandowski.Lewandowski praised voters for providing bond dollars to get the school built.“It takes a local bond to build anything in Arizona and our taxpayers have been very generous and this is the result,” Lewandowski said. Principal Nancy Paddock also thanked the voters. Local News Deal with Avra Valley Water Co-op will give town a water surplus The Marana Town Council approved a deal between the town and the Avra Valley Water Co-op that will help provide the Marana Water Company with enough water to have a surplus between the expected usage of town residents and the town’s overall water supply. Marana Utilities Director John Kmiec called the agreement “historic” and puts Marana in position to actually add to their overall water supply until at least 2026.“Between the two renewable resources, the Colorado River and effluent, we will be able to use on an annual basis what our customers need as well as storing excess water for our current and future users,” Kmiec said.The actual deal is for the town to assume the entire 808 acre-foot per annum allocation of Central Arizona Project municipal and industrial water entitlement. That will push the town’s CAP allocation to 2,336 acre feet per year. Beginning in 1999 Marana began receiving just 47 acre feet of water from CAP. By way of comparison, the City of Tucson receives over 145,000 acre-feet of water. In 2006 the town began getting an additional 1,481 acre-feet from the Flowing Wells Water Co-op. Over the last several years the town has been working with Avra Water Co-Op, who was allocated CAP water although they have no access to the canal. Since Avra Valley has a large number ground water credits, which are more cost effective than CAP water. Oro Valley candidate short-hand: Forum questions and answers In an effort to educate voters, The Explorer has compiled the 10 questions asked at the first candidate forum in the Oro Valley primary election, as well as highly shortened answers of each of the candidates.The first four questions were developed by the Sun City Government Affairs Committee, which hosted the event. The final six questions were pulled from the audience.Responses listed in order presented at forum.Question 1: “The Oro Valley ‘Main Streets’ project attempts to collaborate and develop a long range plan to promote unique areas of economic development and community gathering. Are you in favor of this project and if so, how would it be funded?Steve Solomon: Supportive; private-public partnership funded by private sector.Mike Zinkin: Supportive; wants to wait until public input is collected. Marana Police Department celebrates eight new police officers These are turbulent times to be a police officer, but even with the recent violence towards law enforcement there are still those who want to don the blue. The Marana Police Department recently recognized eight new officers at a shield pining ceremony at the Marana Municipal Complex. Jerry Ysaguirre, Mason Lacaillade, Allicia Caughlin, Dionysius Cazares, Aubrey Lopez, Quan Nguyen, Daniel Nicholas and Jeff Couch were all honored on July 20.Marana Police Chief Terry Rozema began the tradition of the shield pining ceremony a few year back and feels now more than ever it is important to gather their fellow officers and publicly welcome those that complete the rigorous training.“Our Police Academy and Field Training program offer a chance to instill our culture in these new officers,” Rozema said as he officiated the ceremony. “The men and women who go out into Marana wearing this badge are important to this community.”Rozema did not shy away from the tragic events in Dallas, Baton Rouge and other communities. Quite the opposite, he made it a focal point to address it. He began the ceremony with a moment of silence to honor the fallen and then discussed the recent events. “It’s hard to bring people into this profession at a time when it’s scary to be an officer,” Rozema said “Everything that’s going on, though, does not change how we conduct ourselves every day. We treat every person we meet out on the job with total respect.” Entertainment Saturday Puzzles 8-6-16 One of 2016’s best films: ‘Captain Fantastic’ Raising children takes on many different techniques within an extended family or society. Most parents bring their own childhood experiences into the mix of raising kids, deciding which parts to emulate from their past and which ones to perhaps change-up or modify. Often, both parents can’t completely agree on how or best to raise their children. From there, compromises and trial and error must take over. Along the way the potential for parents to second-guess themselves can intensify.In “Captain Fantastic” we find the parents and their six children, all living in the deep woods of the Pacific Northwest, completely isolated from society. Each member thriving as individuals and contributing to the overall family unit to survive.The vastly talented Viggo Mortensen (“Lord of the Rings”) stars as the earthy patriarch of the Cash family, living off-the-grid while raising and home-schooling his exceptionally smart, well-read children. The Cash family, all survivalists equally keen in hunting and gathering as they are discussing the ideologies of Mao, Trotsky or Chomsky, must deal with the unexpected death of their mother. A heart-wrenching loss that tosses each of their wilderness lives upside down. “Captain Fantastic” is a mind-boggling journey that exposes the limits of book smarts and a rigid avoidance self-reliance upon others in life. As the family comes off the mountain to seek closure with their mother’s death, the children struggle to pursue and understand their own ideas, beliefs and individuality. Likewise, Mortensen’s Ben Cash character must come to terms and deal with serious self-doubt issues on raising his children afar from society. This intriguing and thoughtful story covers miles of social etiquette ground. It shocks the audience on the mental and physical endurance of the six siblings. As a family must cope with their loss, the second-guessing and challenges fall to a single parent to sort out. In the mission to honor the memory and wishes of their mother, the Cash family embarks on a trip to learn more about themselves. Look for “Captain Fantastic” to earn end-of the-year award nominations. Mortensen is masterful as head of the Cash family. In his first feature-length film, actor-turned-director Matt Ross offers a stirring drama on human interaction and one family’s attempt to cope with loss, individual beliefs and real life. Every parent, at some point, wonders if they’re raising their child the best possible way? “Captain Fantastic” offers us one unmistakable, yet riveting, parenting route. Power to the family, stick it to the social norms! Saturday Puzzles 7-30-16 Sports No easy schedules for Northwest football teams Few teams in the state have as daunting an opening schedule as Marana. The Tigers open up with three straight road games and face some traditional Southern Arizona powerhouses in four of their first five games. For a team searching for their first playoff bid in nearly a decade, getting off to a fast start may be key. More important than wins, is staying healthy and confident. The Tigers are the likely favorite to win the 5A Sonoran Section and earn an automatic playoff bid, but they can’t lose their way early on. The Tigers open up with traditionally strong Ironwood Ridge in a “zero week” game on Aug. 18. The Nighthawks are coming off another playoff appearance and are the favorite to win the loaded 5A Southern Section. Last year Cienega struggled, winning just four games for new coach Pat Nugent, but expectations are high in Vail. The Bobcats return their leading passer and top-two rushers and will also welcome former Salpointe QB Jamarye Joiner to the fold.They round out the three-game road slate with a trip to Tempe to take on McClintock. The Chargers were just 3-7 last year, but making the hour and a half trek up I-10 is never easy, though Marana Head Coach Andy Litten noted his team had their top performances last year on the road.The Tigers return home on September 9 and meet Sahuaro. Although the Cougars were just a .500 team last year they qualified for the state playoffs. After a week off they play host to CDO. Much like Cienega, the Dorados are coming off a disappointing season but it is hard to imagine them having two down years in the arrow. Pain and fighting glory on display at WFF 29 At only 20-years old, Tucson-native Levi “El Toro” Escobar is the proud owner of his own amateur championship belt in the cutthroat sport of mixed martial arts. Fighting at 155-pounds (lightweight division), Escobar proved that he has what it takes to fight the best in his weight division. Training at DeBrazil Jiu-Jitsu Academy under his father, Martin, Escobar told the crowd that his victory stemmed from years of hard work and perseverance.“I will tell you what,” he said in a post-fight interview. “If any of you kids watching want to be in here someday, you believe it and you put your mind to it, then you can do it. I’m not athletically blessed, I’m nothing. I’m just a regular Mexican kid and I work my [butt] off to be here … this is not a game to us—this is our everyday lifestyle. I want to thank my dad because without him, I wouldn’t be the man that I am today. I watched him train his fighters when I was ten or twelve-years-old, and I watched them put in work at the gym and come into these fights and I knew that someday I would be in here.”Escobar defeated his opponent, Kyle “Nuk Soo Kow” Sullenberger of Knox, Pennsylvania, by way of standing guillotine at the 43-second-mark in the first round of their fight after landing a strong knee to Sullenberger’s stomach, opening him up for a choke.Escobar not only earned the victory and a belt, but also a “submission of the night” award from Nova Home Loans. After the win, he holds a 4-1 amateur record. His only loss came by way of a guillotine choke to Anthony “Ace” Martinez last October at “WFF 24.” Escobar earned the belt after Martinez moved on to compete for the Tuff-N-Uff promotion. While Escobar’s fight was a resounding victory it was only one of six exciting fights, two for championship belts, held at World Fighting Federation’s “WFF 29,” on July 23 at the Casino Del Sol Resort. Other impressive finishes belonged to Manuel “Tick” Huerta, fighting out of Alliance MMA in San Diego, who defeated Ralphy “No Mercy” Pacheco of Tucson, representing Fight Ready, Juliobertos and Cortez Boxing Club by delivering a brutal liver kick and swarming Pacheco with strikes at the 1:24 mark of the second round of their professional flyweight (125 pound) debut fight. Sports update: Thornydale wins state title The Thornydale 8-10 Softball All-Stars won the Arizona state championship with a 7-5 come from behind victory over Gilbert. Gilbert jumped out to a 3-0 lead and led 5-3 heading into the fourth. Thornydale scratched out a run in the fourth then scored three in the fifth to take the lead. Thornydale outhit Gilbert 13-5 but committed three errors which helped keep Gilbert in the game. Sofia Martinez led Thornydale four RBI’s while Destanee Nez had a trio of hits and a pair of RBI’s.Sami Sotelo pitches six innings, striking out five to earn the win for Thornydale. Thornydale went 4-0 at the tournament in Show Low, winning the four games by a combined score of 30-11. Not only was playing for a state championship fun, so was the weather.
