Letter to the Editor: ‘Saving Safeway is on Us’

Letter to the Editor: ‘Saving Safeway is on Us’

Where is your support for our new Safeway Store? Where did you go? It was so exciting to have our local Safeway Store back, instead of the ugly, vacant space which became such an eyesore in our community, but where did the shoppers go? I see vacant aisles, 50-percent-off meat stickers, and clearance produce due […]

Letter to the Editor: Here’s Hoping Anthem Isn’t Swallowed by NoPho

Letter to the Editor: Here’s Hoping Anthem Isn’t Swallowed by NoPho

A recent issue of In&Out Magazine prompts me to write a comment regarding the inclusion of Anthem into the name “NoPho.” Some may say that it’s just a label, a way to distinguish our part of the Valley from the rest. “What’s in a name?”others may ask. I say, “a lot.” I recall all the […]

Letter to the Editor: Why So Many Burger Joints?

I am sure I’m not the only one who thinks this: Why is there another hamburger restaurant soon to open in Anthem? There is the following: Wendy’s Jack in the Box  McDonald’s  Sonic  Freddy’s I’m not against Hamburger restaurants but it would have been nice to see perhaps a Chik-fil-A, a chicken sandwich fast food […]

Letter to the Editor: Chased by Javelinas, Saved by a Honda

Walking my dogs last Monday morning, we spooked three javelinas at the corner of Kuralt and Hastings. I expected the javelinas to posture a bit, but I didn’t expect to be chased right down the center of Hastings, three dogs in tow and three javelinas on our heels. Fortunately, we were faster. Barely. After all, […]

Al Luzietti: March 28, 1940 — Jan. 12, 2017

Beloved husband, father, grandfather, and a proud Navy veteran, Al loved traveling, New England, lobster, the Patriots, the Red Sox, his 35 year career with Mercedes-Benz, and showing off pics of his grandson. He worked at Fry’s in Anthem from the day it opened. “We treasure hearing from so many people in the community how […]

Letter to the Editor: Angels Among Us

The Anthem community shined its generosity this Christmas season! This year, the Daisy Mountain Veterans hosted its first Christmas Toy Drive for children in our local community, and the success was overwhelming. The Anthem Community Council graciously provided space in the Civic Building for a temporary toy store and the Daisy Mountain Veterans then went […]

Thanks for the Cool Idea

Thanks for the Cool Idea

I appreciated your June article on supercooling. [See “Time for a Supercool Idea,” In&Out, June 23.] This is our first summer in our new home in Anthem, and I… implemented immediately all the suggestions for lowering the electric bill while staying very comfortable in our home. [I liked] especially the information you gave at the […]

Biased Coverage of Variance Issue

Biased Coverage of Variance Issue

I am an 8-year Anthem resident/HOA member. I was dismayed to read “Residents Comment on LDS Proposal to Convert Home,” [In&Out, March 31]—on several fronts: Article appears to be significantly biased toward a pro-LDS position. Of the 120 people attending the March 17 meeting, how many were LDS proponents? Maybe you should have entitled your […]

Change in Zoning May Hurt Home Values

I think it is a disgrace that the written and verbal protests from [residents of the Anthem neighborhood] Treasure were ignored and the Merrill Gardens facility is being built. If I had known some unscrupulous out-of-town builder was going to ignore the original zoning laws and build a huge 100-unit apartment building in my neighborhood, […]

Heartfelt Thanks for Some Hand-picked Love

We would like to send out a huge thank you to Fry’s for the beautiful bouquet and windmill. Our son recently passed away and my husband wanted to bring me home a bouquet of all blue flowers to remind me of him (his favorite color was blue). The flower department had multi-colored bouquets only, but after […]
