Loss of leadership dooms Cave Creek festival

by Philip Haldiman - Jul. 4, 2011 06:11 AM
The Arizona Republic

The Cave Creek Film & Arts Festival, which had grown in quality and quantity since it was formed five years ago, has dissolved, officials said.

President Judy Bruce said the festival will not go on, but some categories included in the competition have been broken out separately and more could follow.

"So far, the most popular categories are being taken care of," she said.

Bruce, a visual artist and former art teacher, said she stepped down as president to focus more on her work.

Vice President Suzanne D. Johnson left her position last year after an entry in the film category was pulled because it violated the lease agreement between the festival and the Cave Creek Unified School District.

The film portion of the festival was held at Cactus Shadows High School, and school officials said the film was inappropriate for the venue.

Johnson, citing censorship, resigned.

Bruce said she is ready to move on, leaving two big holes in the festival's leadership.

"I did it for five years, and I wanted to get back to the studio. But (the festival dissolved) because we couldn't find somebody who wanted to take it over, and (we) lack appropriate venues in Cave Creek," Bruce said. "And finding the money to fund it was very difficult."

The festival had categories in seven disciplines, with corresponding youth categories: film, photography, choreography, original song, poetry, short story and visual arts.

The photography competition has been taken over by the Cave Creek Museum. Professional photographer Jerry Sieve, formerly the festival's photography chair, spearheaded the contest.

Evelyn Johnson, executive director of Cave Creek Museum, said she is happy the museum could step in and continue the photography competition.

Winners will be announced July 9.

"Since photos are such an important part of our history here in Cave Creek, the museum is a logical partner to facilitate capturing today's history for tomorrow," she said.

Suzanne Johnson and the town are advising a group of Cactus Shadows students who are producing a film competition under the moniker Desert Foothills Film Festival.

The Sonoran Arts League plans to pick up the visual arts category, and other categories could return when the economy improves, Bruce said.

"The arts are vital, and I think there are other ways to get art out there, even in this economic climate," Bruce said.

The festival, which was held in the summer, initially featured only film, but Mayor Vincent Francia suggested adding categories to make it more comprehensive. In 2006, it became the Cave Creek Film & Arts Festival, and had seen consistent growth over the years. At one point, it considering opening submissions nationally.

In its first year under the new name, the festival received about 90 submissions. Last year, there were more than 400 submissions.

Bruce said the statewide festival awarded cash prizes to the top three placers in each category. The museum-sponsored photography contest will continue to do the same - the top three adult winners will receive $750, $500, and $250. The top three youth winners will receive $250, $100, and $50.

The top three finishers in the upcoming film contest also will receive cash prizes.

These questions have no right or wrong answers.

Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Trick question!! I am 28 going on 35 but due to my current Quarter Life Crisis; I would say twenty to twenty-one.
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying.
  3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? We feel pressured by society to do so and eventually we fall victim to our own debt and thus life changes.
  4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? If you had asked me 3 years ago I would have said "done". Sadly things haven't continued to work out the way I planned so "said" is what it
  5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? End AIDS.
  6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Being a Chicago Cubs Broadcaster on WGN
  7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? Currently settling (work wise)
  8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? First off, my hair would be Jem (yes of the Holograms) pink!! I would also be in Chicago working some job at Wrigley Field!
  9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? About 35%
  10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? I am equally worried about both.
  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do? stand up for my friend.  Sometimes people are just under informed.

  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? I suppose because we are all different!
  17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back? Become a journalist. Holding me back?  Myself.  I am being haunted by the golf cart incident of my youth.  It's cause several place to not hire me and I lost the faith in my own work.  No longer saw the point in completing a college degree and didn't continue to pressure it on my own because once they did a background check I wouldn't be hired.  I was 17 and a half joy rode on golf carts and was charged as an adult.  They charged me with six felony charged that became two misdemeanors.  I hope to one day seal the case.  That's not who I am.
  18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Bitterness towards my Mothers reckless abandonment.

  23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Yes.
  24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? The latter.

  44. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right? I think my time is now!
  45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? I don't want to be set back or judged in a negative light.
  46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Plan and research a little better and think before I spoke.
  47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? Every night before bed.
  48. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? I love many things and people and I would have to say yes!!!
  49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that? No because all I have been doing is working.  This isn't me. :(
  50. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? a bit of both but I would say more of the latter.

It's my a while may darlings.
I have been working to the bone all while sleeping very little.

For those of you who did know, I have been promoted to Store Manager of my
Service Station!  It has been a long couple of weeks, to be frank.

My lil Zombie is on a completly diffrent work schedule than he used to be so
no we hardly ever see eachother.  Mean while I have been spending 11-15 hours at my
job.  Between retail resets, increasing sales, employee turn over and new hire training
coupled with rising fuel prices, it's been a very draining process. Today is my first day off
in nearly 3 weeks.

Did I get a raise? I sure did.  You wouldn't know it though.  I have had to spend $1000 on my
trusted stead Esme to keep her running, my fuel consumption went from $35 a week to $100.
That and my $160 doctors bill and I would currently say that it's a wash.

I really need to figure out how to spend less time there so I feel like I am making more money.
It's just been a little but of a rocky, well for me, transition.  Itt would be lovely if I had an assisitant
manager like nearly everyone else. Training is the most difficult part of the job.  I need to be
innovative and simplify that aspect. 

On a posotive note.  I have been steadly increasing our in store sales.  So that's good!

I badly wanted to go shopping today.  I want some skinny jeans, cute tops, make up,
face wash and maybe even some new shoes.
Sadly... no money.  I need soo much for fuel that I can't afford to go shopping. 
So instead I am wasting my day off sitting on the sofa watching the Blackhawks play the Caps (it's
currently 2-2 in the 3rd period)

Chin up.

Well.. spring is here and I am on an 80s kick so here is my all time fave. Simple Minds song...

Taxes, taxes, taxes... All hail the Queen... wait!! I thought we left there.

Source Wikipedia:

 Fuel taxes in the United States vary by state. The United States federal excise tax on gasoline, as of February 2011, is 18.4 cents per gallon and 24.4 cents per gallon for diesel fuel. In January 2011, motor gasoline taxes averaged 48.1 cents per gallon and diesel fuel taxes averaged 53.1 cents per gallon.[7] For the first quarter of 2009, the mean state gasoline tax is 27.2 cents per US gallon, plus 18.4 cents per US gallon federal tax making the total 45.6 cents per US gallon (12.0 ¢/L). For diesel, the mean state tax is 26.6 cents per US gallon plus an additional 24.4 cents per US gallon federal tax making the total 50.8 cents US per gallon (13.4 ¢/L). There are also a few states that charge sales tax on top of the excise taxes and the retail price. The states that have a tax on their fuel, impose a tax on commercial drivers that travel through their state, even if the fuel is not purchased in that state. The paper work for this taxed on a quarterly basis and filed somewhat like a federal tax return that is done yearly. Most commercial truck drivers have an agent fill out the paper work. The driver calls in their information, the agent figures out how much tax should be paid to each state, then the agent faxes the forms to the driver and they are required to carry the papers with them along with their travel log books.

What were your favorite books as a child, and why?

Honestly.  It was hands down Black Beauty
I had to of read that book at least 10 times between 1st and 5th

I was really into horses back then (yup and unicorns and pegusas..
I was your typical girl!) and black horses were well, there were
totally the bees knees!  I also loved ponies! So the fact that it featured
a pony named Merry Legs was awesome!! I loved the animated adaptation
the best!  To be honest I almost always prefered animated versions!
There was a sweetness to them that made the store more genuine.

My second favorite book was The Lion the Witch and the Wardorbe
I have read that book at least 5 times.  I have also read this book as an
adult.  To this day, I have never had turkish delight but C.S. Lewis wrote
with few words that contained such detail that I can still taste it each time I read it!?

Hello My Lovelies,

What an interesting Week 2 of NFL football! I went two for two, in a weekend of exciting football!
The most surprising game of the week was hands down the New York Jets triumphant take down of
the New England Patriots.

The Jets defense was so impressive that New England quarterback Tom Brady often appeared scared and
confused in the pocket. The coverage of the New England wide receivers was superb and it was every thing
New York head coach, Rex Ryan promised it would be.

The most exciting game of the week goes to the Baltimore Ravens short comings in Pittsburg. Both teams
had their share of short comings, however the veteran lead Steelers were able to take advantage of Baltimore’s
mistakes, put points on the board and rattle Raven QB Joe Flacco sacking him an impressive 5 times!

Atlanta defense was no match for Aaron Rogers and the Bears had an easy day against Seattle.

With the Championship games just days away I had to make the mental debate for my picks.
Here's my Vblog.

If you could pick any place on earth to spend the holidays, where would you go, and who would you bring with you?

I would like to stay at a beautiful estate somewhere in upstate New York.
Where I could enjoy the woods that surround the property, ride around
on the horses, enjoy the snow as it quietly falls and have dinner next to
a 100 year old fire place.

I would, of course, take Joshua with me along with a few other must have's.
I would need my journal, my camera, 18 hole Doc Martens and a fur coat.
It would be wonderful.  I can't find a place that exactlly like the place in my head but here's an idea.
