Veterans Day Holiday Ballots will continue to be counted in Arizona

PHOENIX, Arizona – State and county officials, and Republican Party officials who sued over discrepancies in the way Arizona counties check voter signatures on early ballots, agreed Friday to a settlement that allows the verification process to continue until 5 p.m. Nov. 14.

That could have an impact on the tight Senate race between Kyrsten Sinema and Martha McSally. Sinema regained the lead earlier this week and at the end of Sunday evening had expanded her lead to 32,169 votes, with McSally at 1,039,778 and Sinema at 1,071,947.

Meanwhile, the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office continues to whittle away at its pile of uncounted ballots, which totaled more than 300,000 on Friday. County Recorder Adrian Fontes told the Associated Press that the count is expected to wrap up Nov. 15. That process is independent of the settlement, which deals with the verification, or curing, of ballot signatures.

The Republican parties in Apache, Maricopa, Navajo and Yuma counties filed the suit against all 15 Arizona county recorders as well as Secretary of State Michele Reagan late Wednesday. The agreement announced in Maricopa County Superior Court, allows all 15 counties in Arizona to cure the remaining early ballots until next Wednesday.

The process works like this: Voters are required to sign the back of his or her early ballot envelope. That signature is compared to the one used to register to vote and other recorded documents on file with the Recorder’s office. If the signatures don’t look similar, the voter will be contacted to confirm it is in fact their ballot. The four counties named in the suit allow for longer times for verification; Republican officials claimed that disenfranchised voters in the other 11, mostly rural, counties.

The Maricopa County Elections Department updated results Sunday at 5 p.m., and reported there were  approximately 162,000 ballots left to process for the 2018 General Election, with 215,000 votes reported remaining throughout all the counties.

The remaining ballots are early, provisional and out-of-precinct ballots that voters cast or dropped off on Election Day.

“Some of the ballots we are currently processing require extra attention and research. We are taking the time needed to make sure every voter’s voice is heard,” Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes said.

Election officials expect tabulation to continue for several more days, and will update the results daily at 5 p.m.

Election results for Maricopa County are available at www.Maricopa.Vote. State wide results are at the Secretary of State website

A Culver’s and Two New Dutch Bro’s coming to Vail and Sahuarita

SAHUARITA, ARIZONA – Team Adams Sahuarita LLC of Sierra Vista (Kevin Adams Trust) paid $1.065 million ($286 PSF) for a former American Southwest Credit Union with excess land at 18800 S Nogales Hwy in Sahuarita Plaza.

CVP- Sahuarita Plaza DB LLC, an affiliate of Cole Valley Partners of Portland Oregon, then purchased the excess land from Team Adams Sahuarita for $765,000 ($28 PSF) and plans to develop for 900-square-foot Dutch Bro’s Coffee at 18810 S Nogales Hwy. in Sahuarita Plaza.

This will be the first Culver’s and Dutch Bro’s in Sahuarita with plans to open Q2 2019.

Dutch Bro’s will also be added to Old Vail Plaza, where CVP – Rita Ranch purchased a 10,038-square-foot pad for $625,000. ($62 PSF). The property sold shovel ready and Dutch Bro’s will join Native Grill, Taco Bell and Freddy’s Steakburger at the center.

From their 911 cold brew to the Banana Cream Pie Frost, Dutch Bros. Coffee has been serving up tasty beverages to the west coast since 1992.  Unfortunately, Tucsonans have been excluded from enjoying one of their beverages for years. But, with a new store that opened Oct 9th at 120 South Wilmot, near Broadway Boulevard and Wilmot Road, Dutch Bros. is helping Old Pueblo residents catch up with the rest of the west.

With these two new land acquisitions, the Oregon coffee chain will have four shops in the Metro Tucson area, the others being at Cortaro & I 10 in Marana.

Pete Villaescusa and Jesse Peron with CBRE in Tucson handled the sale at Old Vail Plaza.

For more information, Villaescusa and Peron should be reached at 520 323-5100.

The two 4,200-square-foot buildings were build in 2016 and were ready to occupy when sold.

The properties were purchased by Midtown Tucson LLC, dba Starfish Care Homes. The property represents the fifth acquisition in six years. Other Starfish Care Homes include River Hills, 6611 E River Hills Pl; Indian Ridge, 2641 N Bahama Dr.; Spanish Trail, 9251 E Old Spanish Trail; Rolling Hills, 8742 E 27th Street, and now Midtown 5530 & 5536 E 2nd Street all in Tucson.

Biery represented buyers and the sellers, 2nd Street Partners I, LLC and 2nd Street Partners II, LLC – a local developer of adult care homes, in the transaction.

“There was a great fit in this transaction, between the buyer and sellers,” Biery said.  “The sellers design and build high-quality, assisted-living care homes, based upon what the senior housing market is demanding right now.  Both of these facilities have ten private rooms, all with attached bathrooms, rather than semi-private rooms.”

“The owners of Starfish Care Homes really liked the layout and quality of construction – it fits perfectly with what their residents want, and it makes it easy for Starfish to provide the highest quality of care possible.  Being one of the finest assisted-living operators in town, Starfish really wanted to buy Class-A buildings.  That’s what they got,” Biery added.

Are Voters Feeling the Economy?

OPED by Karen Schutte

If you believe there is a correlation between politics and the economy. The last official snapshot of the economy that came out Friday before Americans vote reminded me of James Carville’s words, “It’s the economy, stupid”.

Hiring is up. Wages are up. The total number of workers and job searchers are up.

But, the question remains: “Are voters feeling it?”

For years, we’ve been told since the Great Recession that the economy was improving ‘we just weren’t feeling it yet.’

On Friday, we heard the Labor Department report, employers added 250,000 jobs in October, extending a record streak of growth to 97 months. Many, including President Trump, have called it “tremendous”.

In Tucson, 9,300 jobs were gained from August 2017 to September 2018, according to the most recent labor report from October 18th.

In fact, total nonfarm employment over the month gain for Tucson was second only to Flagstaff MSA at 3.1%, at 2.4% net job gains.  Higher than Arizona and the Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale MSA growth, both at 1.2%.

From September 2017 to September 2018, Arizona’s seasonally adjusted labor force level increased by 54,239 individuals, not an insignificant number.

Friday’s roundup also offered evidence that workers are not only feeling optimistic about job prospects but are actually finding work, which is why the jobless rate was unchanged at 3.7 percent even as employers hired more people. An estimated 711,000 people joined the national labor force last month alone.

As always, the monthly jobs report captures only a particular moment; the underlying trend is what’s important. That caution is particularly pertinent this time.

The back-to-back hurricanes in September and October may have distorted the data in unpredictable ways.  A modest monthly wage gain of 0.2% nonetheless produced a surprisingly big 3.1% jump in annual growth. That was partly because of the unusual drop in pay in October 2017 after hurricanes. Yet even if the year-over-year increase was somewhat inflated, the underlying trends point to a pickup in wage growth.

Some analysts immediately saw warnings of inflation, while others said the pay increase should not bother policymakers at the Federal Reserve. “I don’t think it’s something the Fed should worry about,” Michelle Girard, chief United States economist at NatWest Markets, said. “Productivity growth is picking up, and workers should earn more. It doesn’t mean companies have to pass on higher wage costs to consumers. They can afford to pay them more.”

The Fed, which has increased rates three times this year from historically low levels, is expected to raise them again to 2.5 percent in December as a hedge against inflation.

In a call with reporters, Kevin Hassett, the chairman of the president’s Council of Economic Advisers, cited productivity growth as the explanation for higher wages, and not an overheating economy. He also took the opportunity to say that the president respects the Fed’s independence.

Manufacturing jobs — which have traditionally paid well and have been a focus of President Trump’s policies — increased by a healthy 32,000.

The economy has historically not played an outsize role in midterm elections, and this political season, border control, health care and Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court have gobbled up airtime and political ad space. Still, about three-quarters of registered voters say the economy is “very important” in determining their vote, according to polls conducted by the Pew Research Center. Among Republicans, that number is even higher at 85 percent.

We’ll have to wait until Tuesday night to see who is feeling the economy.

LAO-Tucson Closes on $12.61 Million of Land Sales in Northwest Tucson

TUCSON, Arizona — Will White and John Carroll with Land Advisors Organization (LAO) closed this week on $12.61 million in land sales in Rancho Vistoso and Gladden Farms in Northwest Tucson submarket.

A New York-based land investment REIT, JEN Arizona 32, LLC and affiliate TerraWest Communities (Mike Jesberger) purchased Blocks 5H and 5I (190 Acres) at Rancho Vistoso Neighborhood 5 in Oro Valley for $6.3 million.  The buyer plans to plat the parcels for a mix of production lot sizes. The Seller was VP Loan II, LLC.

Richmond American acquired 19 paper lots in Rancho Vistoso Neighborhood 10T for $850,000 ($44,737 perplatted and engineered lot). The 19 lots are a Vistoso infill parcel sold by Tempe-based, Grace Holdings, LLC (Bernadette Wolfswinkel, manager).

“Rancho Vistoso goes all the way back to the 1980’s and 90’s, so Vistoso is some of the best infill in the region at this point. It has a proven track record of some of the strongest pricing power and pace in the Tucson metro area. It is surrounded by supporting amenities, employment and the views and aesthetics of that area are amazing. Homebuilders continue to scout opportunities in that masterplan because they are having great success. As the options become limited in Rancho Vistoso, we expect land to continue to trade at a premium that reflects the strong attributes of the project,” commented White.

Richmond also closed on it’s second deal at Gladden Farms in 2018 for another 105-finished lots for $5.46 million ($52,000 per lot). The lots were sold by the developer, Gladden Phase II, LLC (Crown West Realty, Dean Wingert). Will White and John Carroll of Land Advisors Organization in Tucson handled the transaction and have the marketing assignment on all of Gladden Farms.

“Gladden Farms has closed 347 lots YTD. It is not surprising that new blocks are trading at volume, it is a fantastic community in a strong growth area. North Marana has huge momentum and will continue to capitalize on the constraints of the metro area for many years to come.”

White added, “The great thing about the Tucson market is that it is showing strength in almost every component. We are seeing much better economic news and supply is tight on all fronts which is providing a very stable situation. We like to look at burn rate and this year there has been a big push to affordability and building specs to get ahead of timing concerns and get cost efficiencies. This all leads to the build out of communities faster than everyone was anticipating. Bottom line is we need more land in production in all areas of Tucson or we can simply expect price increase all around from land to housing over the next 24 months.”

For more information, White and Carroll should be reached at 520.514.7454.

Mountain Oyster Club Completes $1.4 Million World Class Kitchen Remodel

TUCSON, Arizona — Dean P. Cotlow of Cotlow Company and President of the Mountain Oyster Club (M.O. Club) announced the completion of a recent complicated remodel of the 82-year old kitchen at the M.O. Club building. With the goal of keeping the Mountain Oyster Club open during construction, with semi-trailer sized kitchens, there were many surprises discovered during the remodel due to the age of the facility. The Club celebrated its reopening Oct 12th.

Seaver Franks were the architects and Barker Contracting completed the construction. The end result is nothing short of a world class kitchen at a cost of $1.4 million for the new kitchen at the Mountain Oyster Club.

The iconic home of the Club at 6400 E El Dorado Circle in Tucson has a long rich history of its own. It was originally built as a home for Miss Florence L. Pond, daughter of a distinguished lawyer in Detroit. The building, called Stone Ashley, was planned by Grosvernor Atterbury, a well-known New York Architect. It was constructed of block and native fieldstone by the M. M. Sundt Construction Company for a price of $67,000. The estate consisted of 318 acres that extended approximately one mile on Speedway and a half mile along Wilmot. Approximately 20 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds surrounded the 17-room residence, the rest was natural desert. Miss Pond made Stone Ashley and the grounds available to servicemen and other groups in the area during WWII for concerts, other programs and swimming.

In 1947, Miss Pond put the property up for sale with an asking price of $300,000 unfurnished, and eventually sold it for $200,000 including furnishings. After approximately $400,000 in renovations by architect Bernard J. Friedman and the M. I. Poze Construction Company, which included the addition of a third floor to the main building and other building improvements, which would house up to 80 guests, it opened in 1949 as the El Dorado Lodge. Also added at that time, were tennis courts, a heater for the pool, putting greens, badminton courts, shuffleboard courts, horseshoe pitching facilities, an 18-hole golf course, horse stables, corrals and a residential community.

The El Dorado Guest Lodge promoted itself as a place “…where breathless scenery, age-old traditions and the pleasures of today combine…”

It later became the Palm Court Restaurant before being purchased by Charles Kerr, former Maitre d’ of the Tack Room Restaurant and opening as Charles Restaurant in 1979. Charles attempted to return the mansion to its original English manor style with slate floors, wonderful fireplaces and a beautiful beamed ceiling. He was also responsible for the addition of a first-class kitchen. What had once been elegant guest rooms were now offices for various Tucson businesses. In 1984, an additional 2 story office building was added to the northeast side of the existing buildings, which copied the style and materials of the original structures.

Most recently, for a period of about 2 years the original mansion housed a French restaurant that went by the name of the original home, Stone Ashley.

While many changes have taken place over the years, much hasn’t. You still enter the property by way of the tall Italian Cypress lined road and the original paneled front door of the Pond mansion, believed to have cost $1,500 in 1936. A few of the fruit trees remain from what was a family citrus grove of grapefruit, sour orange and olive trees. To the right of the front entrance, the bath house with 2 dressing rooms still remains although the pool has been replaced with a parking lot. Many of the decorative gardens, fountains and other exquisite touches that made this estate one of the show places of the southwest can still be found inside and out.

Likewise, the Mountain Oyster Club prides itself in holding true to its rich heritage. Many of the original “Los Viejos” are no longer with us, but the M. O. Club has attracted a colorful array of westerners that hold true to the club’s traditions. You will still find the custom woven carpet, good ‘ol boys in the bar willing to share a story or two, and your right to wear your blue jeans and park your pickup or stock truck in the lot as well as the motto “cerveza y huevos para todos.” Changing times are even dealt with by applying the swift old western style of justice, as those who have allowed their cell phones to ring have found out, when they picked up the tab for a round of drinks. Also unchanged, is a collection of fine western art, southwestern hospitality, fine wines and spirits, and an enticing menu that includes fine cuts of beef prepared to satisfy the palates of those that know a thing or two about whence it came and how good it can be when it is prepared correctly.

There are many colorful stories of how the Mountain Oyster Club came to be. There is probably a thread of truth in most of them. The most common versions say that it was begun by a group of cowboys, playboys, ranchers, polo players, race-horse types, and others whose unacceptable behavior had gotten them thrown out of all of the respectable establishments in Tucson. Whether the real reason for its’ creation was to give ranchers and their wives a place in town where they could feel at home in their boots and Levi’s and shoot out the lights without offending the rest of the membership or some other less interesting purpose, we know it began in 1948.

A group of six men have been given the blame or credit as the case may be for creating a list of original invitees. The club opened for business November 1, 1948, in the basement of the Santa Rita Hotel in downtown Tucson, a location deemed “The Passion Pit.” The club was relocated to the neighboring Pioneer Hotel in 1965. The Mountain Oyster Club was forced to find a new location ten years later when the Pioneer Hotel ceased operations. After extensive renovations, in November of 1975, the club reopened in the historical Jacome home, then owned by well know accountant and member, C.T.R. Bates. This mansion at the corner of Stone Ave. and Franklin became the home of the M. O. Club for the next 30 years.

In 2003, with another lease renewal looming, the club sought a place to purchase, the investment of a permanent home for the Club. Unable to negotiate the purchase of the current facilities, the search began for a new home; a historical building and ample parking were the top priorities. In January 2004, the Mountain Oyster Club moved out of downtown to its current location near Speedway and Wilmot on Tucson’s East side. The new facilities house the club and several commercial office rental spaces.
