Are you a sucker for succulents?

Author and succulent expert, Jeff Moore will be giving a lecture and guided walk at Boyce Thompson Arboretum from 2 – 4 p.m this Friday.   Moore has owned and operated a specialty retail succulent nursery in Solana Beach since 1992 where he gained local notoriety for undersea succulent gardens. He was invited to the Philadelphia Flower Show in 2004 and later self-published Under the Spell of Succulents in 2014. He is in Arizona this week promoting his new book Aloes & Agaves in Cultivation.  There is no fee to attend his talk or the informal guided walk afterwards (free to BTA members, included with $12.50 admission for non-members);  but carry some cash, as the author will sign copies of his books before and after. “I’m a fan of all succulents/cacti, but have always had a special fondness for aloes, and this book is aimed more at the enthusiast than as a botanical statement, focusing not on habitat but how we grow these mostly African plants here (well, for me that means California, but there are a number than do grow in Arizona). “I’ve been speaking to cactus and succulent clubs in support of my books all over California and Arizona the past two years, and ...

Peak Wildflower Season has arrived in Globe-Miami region

Every spring, swaths of Mexican Gold poppies bloom along highway 60 lure photographers and petal-peepers to the communities of Miami and Globe. The burst of color is reliable even in years that lack generous winter rainfall, but with the rains we’ve had during the first quarter of 2017 this promises to be an exceptional display.   Read More »

The Evolution Of A Band: Miami’s Big Band Sound

This story first appeared in our summer 2014 issue It’s the first Friday of June, and the sun is beginning to set behind Miami. An eight-piece band plays a lighthearted ‘50s tune in front of Bullion Plaza as a woman dances her heart out in the empty street in front of them. With a bounce and loaded shimmy in every step, she dances solo. A few other bodies jitter by her, but this woman’s gusto is hard to ignore. Read More »

Reader reviews movie SPLIT now playing

 By Michael Burk   M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split” (2017) In 1999 M. Night seemingly achieved overnight success with the Bruce Willis supernatural thriller, “The Sixth Sense”. It had critical praise, financial reward & even a few Oscar nods. A year later, he teamed with Willis once again on “Unbreakable”.   A beautifully subdued take on the superhero origin legend. It did okay, but wasn’t the blockbuster their original team up was. It to this day remains my favorite M. Night film. Some films take more than one viewing to truly grasp their greatness. Then came “Signs”.  Another big hit & basically the last, not just for Shyamalan, but unfortunately, for it’s star, Mel Gibson as well. I actually walked from one screening of “Signs” to the next one the day it was released. Just to hear the audience shriek in terror, all over again. Night would never stop making films, but he surely stopped making successful ones.   Personally, I’ve never given up on him as a talent & have enjoyed most of his missteps, if not out & out experiments. I always longed for him to just stop writing his own stuff & just direct some one else’s work. But ... Read More »

Arizona authors release suspense novel set in Globe

Unsolved murders haunt small city in ‘Which Lives to Fear’ PHOENIX — Two Arizona writers recently released a suspense novel, “Which Lives to Fear,” about a reporter trying to solve a string of murders which have haunted her family – and the small city of Globe – for years. “The combination of Arizona’s dangerous landscape and fascinating characters provided the perfect backdrop for our mystery and suspense story,” said J. Maynard Carr, a veterinarian who lives in Avondale.  Carr, a lifelong Arizonan, is the author of “The Second Floor,” “Cross-Linked,” and “kINK.” His work has garnered international attention, with loyal readers as far as Japan, Brazil and Europe.  The novel was co-written by Corey Schubert, a former investigative journalist and NASA editor who produces and writes films in metro Phoenix. He lives in Gilbert.  “Which Lives to Fear” follows Melissa Wilder, whose family was ripped apart fifteen years ago when a serial killer carved a deep scar through Globe. The madman butchered her little brother and left her father nearly dead, and then disappeared into eerie silence. Now Melissa returns home as a talented reporter eager to revisit the cold case – just as the murderer resumes his terrifying spree ... Read More »

Reader reviews “Krampus Unleashed” filmed in Globe

By: Michael Burk. The movie, Krampus Unleashed, was partially filmed in the Globe area in 2015. Robert Conway’s “Krampus Unleashed” is an indie horror picture in the yule tide tradition of Drive-In classics such as “Black Christmas” or “Silent Night, Deadly Night”. It mixes the joy of the season with darker underpinnings and if you love a good old fashion, monster in the woods type film, than “Krampus Unleashed” is the picture for you. Read More »
