'A pretty unusual sight': Beavers make themselves at home in Phoenix yards

The critters likely followed the canal and emerged in the Valley looking for food.

PHOENIX — It’s not a sight most Phoenicians are accustomed to seeing: beavers making themselves at home in Arcadia yards.

“I don't know about you, but I've never seen a beaver in Arcadia,” said Jamie Hass Oliver, a Development Manager at Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center. “So, it's a pretty unusual sight.”

An adult male beaver was spotted in a backyard near 44th Street and Osborn Road Tuesday night, right in the heart of the Arcadia neighborhood.

VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOL: 'Una visita bastante inusual': Los castores se sienten como en casa en los patios de Phoenix

“So, there's a chance that the Salt River might be feeding into the canal system,” Oliver explained. “Once a beaver makes it into a canal, like the one near 44th Street and Osborn, there's no food in there for them. So, when they get hungry, they will emerge from the water and look for food.”

Oliver says Arcadia is as logical a choice as any for beavers to emerge from the canal system.

“You know, when I want some food, I go to Arcadia — they have some amazing restaurants down there. So, I guess a beaver was looking there as well!”

This is not the first beaver sighting in the area. Mellisa Murray, who lives just a few blocks north of Osborn Road, captured video of a pair of beavers in her backyard, doing what beavers do best: at least one small tree in her yard was cut down by the semi-aquatic rodents.

“The beaver that was just rescued is actually the third beaver in our rehab facility right now,” Oliver said.

One rescued beaver has been named Fern. Unable to be released into the wild, Fern is now a permanent resident at the conservation center. That probably won’t be the fate for the latest rescued Arcadia beaver.

“So, the vet tech says he looks pretty fine,” Oliver explained. “He's got regular amounts of energy, He's eating well, He's swimming around in his little tub in our rehab area. So, he's doing great, it's likely that he's fine.”

Once the latest Arcadia beaver checks out with the veterinarian, he’ll be able to be placed back in the wild, meaning he may make it home in time for the holidays! (Of course, that probably means less to the beaver than it does to all of us.)

Masterminds behind Tacos Chiwas and Espiritu to open new Mexican restaurant in Phoenix

James Beard semifinalist Roberto Centeno of Espiritu Mesa, who rose to prominence while working at Bacanora, and Armando Hernandez,...

James Beard semifinalist Roberto Centeno of Espiritu Mesa, who rose to prominence while working at Bacanora, and Armando Hernandez, the co-owner of Cocina Chiwas and Tacos Chiwas, are collaborating on a new restaurant opening in the space formerly occupied by The Vintage in Arcadia.

Located at the corner of 44th Street and Osborn Road, Santo Arcadia will open on the heels of Espiritu's second and Cocina Chiwas's first anniversaries. The 7,500-square-foot space can accommodate close to 300 people, though the owners plan to start with limited seating.

Hernandez described the concept as casual fine dining. Whereas Espiritu has a dark, moody interior, Santo, which means saint, is airy with clean lines, large windows and a bright green bar.

"Our other restaurants are in the East Valley and we wanted a more centrally located spot," Hernandez said. "This is very close to the airport and very close to Scottsdale."

Try these restaurants first:Of the dozens of restaurants that opened in metro Phoenix this fall, try these 3 first

What's on the menu at Santo Arcadia

"Like everything else we do, there will be a fire element," Centeno said. "We'll do some outdoor grilling and have grills in the kitchen.

He describes the menu as a hybrid between Cocina Chiwas and Espiritu, featuring steaks, ceviches and salads. According to Centeno, aside from a wood-fired grill, this restaurant will also use charcoal.

Prices will also be similar to Espiritu, Bacanora and Cocina Chiwas, ranging from between $12- $30 for appetizers and mains.

The bar program will include Mexican spirits like Mexican whiskey and bourbon, cocktails, sake, and global wines with a focus on Mexican wines.

How to visit Santo Arcadia

The expected opening date is January 2024. The restaurant will initially offer limited seating and dinner.

Plans for the future include brunch, private dining and a smaller sit-down cocktail bar with 10-15 cocktails and bar bites.

Hours upon opening will be 5-10 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday. A grand opening date has not been announced yet.

Millions of moth-like caddisflies invaded a neighborhood bordering the Arizona Canal near 44th Street and Indian School Road.

PHOENIX — >>Editor's note: A previous version of this story identified the insects as moths.

A pesky little insect is swarming a Phoenix neighborhood.

Caddisflies have taken over homes and businesses lining the Arizona Canal near Arcadia Drive and Indian School Road. These moth-like insects spend their larval stage in water and emerge en masse in the spring and fall.

“This year has been really quite bad," Rakesh Patel, who lives in the area said.

Rakesh and Raju Patel have tried everything, but they can't seem to expel the swarms of caddisflies insects from invading their yard.

“The quantities and the number is so vast that you just can’t stop it," Rakesh Patel said. “It’s like walking through a dust storm and the worst days it really is. You can’t see in front of you.”

The couple said the issue started a couple of months ago.

“We see the most in the morning, then sundown, and then it shifts to the front of the house during the day," Raju Patel said.

Millions of caddisflies doing nothing but flying around.

“To the point where we just shut the back door and don’t use the backyard," Raju Patel said.

Kelly Richers, a board member with the Wedge Entomological Research Foundation, told 12News the rain is partially to blame.

“The 'moths' are able to reach adulthood this year much more propitiously than they have in the past," Richers said.

He said the caddisflies will likely die off within the next few weeks.

“Many of these [caddisflies] don’t even have mouthparts. They don’t exist to eat as adults. They’re just there to breed and as soon as they have that opportunity than they will lay their eggs and not be around anymore," Richers said.

The Patels said the problem gets worse every year.

“We don’t want to eradicate them. It’s just more about managing the numbers," Raju Patel said.

SRP, the company that manages the Arizona Canal, told 12News they work to reduce the larvae by scraping the sides and bottom of the canal.

They also added 4,000 catfish, a natural predator of caddisflies, to reduce the larvae.

Arcadia Views Lofts becomes first Net Zero built-to-rent community

Known as one of the country’s leading developers of Net Zero communities, MODUS Companies, has completed its latest project in the highly sought after Arcadia community of Phoenix, called Arcadia Views Lofts (located at 2640 N 52nd Street, Phoenix, AZ 85008).

Known as one of the country’s leading developers of Net Zero communities, MODUS Companies, has completed its latest project in the highly sought after Arcadia community of Phoenix, called Arcadia Views Lofts (located at 2640 N 52nd Street, Phoenix, AZ 85008). Built in partnership with Kinella Construction and HercuTech, the manufacturer of HercuWall® (a patented “green” wall building system that is not only mold, insect and fire resistant but also hurricane rated), this will be the first-ever Net Zero Energy multifamily project in Phoenix.

“By partnering with Kinella and HercuWall for this development, we have been able to provide not only a structure that’s safer than using traditional lumber, but it also cuts down on the utilization of natural resources, lowers our carbon footprint and offers cost-savings in the form of utility bills being a third of the normal price,” said Founder of MODUS Companies Ed Gorman.

After partnering with Kinella Construction and HercuTech on this project, MODUS’ Gorman coined their partnership as “The Tesla of Built-to-Rent.” The HercuWall® building system alone (which is made from EPS foam, reinforced with a patented steel ShearStrip, laminated with a weather-resistant barrier, and followed by site integrated concrete) provides superior strength, durability and safety for homeowners compared to traditional wood build outs. HercuWall also results in a more sustainable, highly energy efficient home. Because of this, Arcadia Views will save over 8,000kg of carbon emissions annually and will save its residents over $3,500 in energy bills year after year.

“We are extremely proud of this project and honored to partner with MODUS and Kinella. This team has the vision, commitment, and passion for offering sustainable, eco-conscious housing in the multifamily space,” said HercuTech CEO Jason Rhees. “To be among the first in the area to offer this is not only a major win for us but also for the residents, who will recognize measurable cost-savings, healthier air quality, and a quieter living experience, all in a stronger and more environmentally efficient community. As energy costs increase every year – especially for those of us living in America’s hottest big city – we believe everyone should expect this quality of residential construction that the HercuWall system maintains.”

Designed with a single-family feel and multifamily amenities, the two floor plan options offered at Arcadia View Lofts are a two-bedroom loft in a two-story building and a one-bedroom in a one-story building. Conveniently located just south of the Biltmore and Arcadia neighborhoods, and blocks from Scottsdale, Arcadia Views Lofts is in an ideal, centrally located area within greater Phoenix. In addition to being Net Zero Energy and using HercuWall® technology, the property will also feature solar panels, Energy Star appliances, Nest thermostats, advanced home automation, a community pool/spa and ramada, and each unit has its own back yard with pet door.

Horizon rolls over ALA Gilbert North

By Alex Chenevey

In a big 5A showdown between two top seven teams in 5A, No. 4 Phoenix Horizon came out on top, defeating the ALA Gilbert North Eagles, 51-27.

The Huskies went into halftime with a 35-7 lead and never looked back. Both teams now will wait to see where they will be placed when Saturday's AIA playoff brackets are unveiled.:

ALA-Gilbert North got off to a hot start on its first drive. After a 46-yard pass from junior quarterback Bryson Landen to senior wide receiver and Arizona-commit Brandon Phelps, junior running back Kody Thorley took the ball and ran it 27 yards into the end zone to give the Eagles their first points of the game.

Horizon would respond quickly, as junior quarterback Jase Ashley ran a read option and kept the ball and found daylight for a 46 yard touchdown run to tie the game up 7-7.

Horizon wouldn’t stop there, as Ashley would find senior tight end Carson Kolb off of a play action bootleg pass for a short touchdown grab to give the Huskies the lead 14-7.

Ashley would run for his second touchdown of the game on Horizon’s next drive, as he would keep it 32 yards into the end zone with some nice juke moves to extend the Huskies lead to two touchdowns.

Horizon’s fourth touchdown of the half came from senior running back Anthony Segura, Horizon’s lead would be extended to 21 with his two yard touchdown plunge.

Kolb wouldn’t find the end zone just on offense, as after a strip-sack fumble caused by senior defensive end Jack Metzler, Kolb would recover the ball and run it into the end zone to give Horizon a 28 point lead entering halftime.

On ALA Gilbert North’s opening drive of the second half, Thorley would score his second rushing touchdown in the game on a run up the middle, cutting Horizon’s lead to 22 points.

Horizon would find the end zone once again, this time from Ashley to junior wideout Adam Wagner on a 18 yard play action pass where Wagner was wide open in the end zone for six.

From there, Horizon maintained control and rolled to the win.

Horizon’s offense looked unstoppable, as Ashley led a balanced attack with multiple passing and rushing touchdowns of his own. Both Segura and Kolb made big time plays on both side of the ball, with Segura scoring a rushing touchdown and notching an interception with Kolb getting an offensive and a defensive touchdown in the same quarter.

ALA Gilbert North had some of their players turn in great performances as well. Phelps was consistently finding separation no matter the quarterback, and his hard work paid off with a one yard touchdown late in the fourth.

“Momentum is on our side,” said Horizon head coach Andy Litten. “We’re ready to take on opponents. In all reality, we don’t care where they (AIA) put us in the seeding, we’re not afraid of anybody in 5A and we’re gonna go out and play our style of football.”

Both teams are expected to be placed in the 5A playoff bracket, which will be revealed by the AIA Saturday morning on the NFHS Network. Playoffs start next week.

Brophy defense holds off Salpointe

By Howard Schlossberg

In a playoff atmosphere-filled game, Brophy Prep and Salpointe Catholic played like champions.

But Brophy's defense asserted itself in the end and in a frenetic final few minutes, held off the visiting Lancers late rally effort for a 14-12 win that sends both into the playoffs at 8-2.

Brophy's defense fended off the Lancers twice in the red zone in the first half, holding them to field.goals and then smartly navigated the final minute of the first half to manufacture a TD on a great catch by Daylen Sharper that turned the tide of the game.

As far as Brophy head coach Jason Jewell was concerned, Sharper's magnificent leaping grab of Charlie McGinnis' 29-yard heave to the back left corner of the end zone with 5 seconds left in the first half turned a 12-0 demoralizing deficit into an adrenaline boost.

It might have deflated the Lancers as well. They went 3 and out on two of three 3rd-quarter possessions as Devan Kennedy, Mardale Rowe and Alex Salome forced the Lancers to go to three quarterbacks to try to gain yards.

They couldn't.

Meanwhile, Brophy managed another long strike for a TD, McGinnis to Ryan de Koning, and it was 14-12 midway through the 4th.

And Brophy's defense kept making plays. The Lancers only had 3 first downs in the second half. The defensive line kept on pressuring three different quarterbacks in a hurried 9 of 17 performance.

Brophy somehow neutralized D-1 defensive ends Elijah Rushing and Keona Wilhite, although a Wilhite blocked punt produced a Kyah Francone 35-yard field goal.

McGinnis finished an impressive 23 of 31 for 140, with two scores and had to scramble a lot under pressure. Brophy had but 208 yards in total offense, only 2 net rushing.

But the Lancers had only 169 yards in total offense.

The game ended with the Lancers dropping a snap and out of timeouts as the clock expired before they could run another play.

Jewell couldn't say enough about the titanic defensive effort, but realized the achievement too.

"It's our first section championship since 2008," he noted.

"I suspect we'll be 1 or 2 in 6A. But I hope for the Open."

Both teams learn Saturday where they are placed for the playoffs, which start next week.

Arcadia shuts out AZC Prep, finishes unbeaten

By Anthony Perez

With an undefeated record and the 4A Desert Sky Region title on the line, Phoenix Arcadia (10-0, No. 4 in 4A) knew it was going to have to rely on its vaunted defense if it wanted a win in its final regular season contest. The defense certainly did it’s job, but senior Brady Forst provided the icing on the cake by scoring three touchdowns, leading his team’s 27-0 victory over Chandler Arizona College Prep (7-3, No. 9 in 4A) on Friday night in Chandler.

Standout performers

Of course, much could be made of Arcadia’s defense holding ACP scoreless, but Forst was a force on Friday night. With Arcadia up 7-0 late in the opening quarter, Forst provided some valuable cushion to his team’s lead by scoring on an 18-yard touchdown run. Forst’s second trip to the end zone was a short five-yard run with 9:38 left in the third quarter following an interception and 50-yard return by teammate Logan Connelly. Forst’s final touchdown of the night put the game away with 8:26 left to play when he found the end zone from three yards out.

ACP, which entered Friday’s contest having allowed an average of just 12.4 points per game this season, knew their defense was going to have to be a key to victory and it kept them in the game for much of it. One of those defensive stars was junior Bodhi Gurrola, who picked off Arcadia’s junior quarterback Braylen Rooney in the closing seconds of the first half.

Highlight of the game

After allowing two scores in the first quarter, ACP’s defense had tightened up and kept the game close into the start of the second half. But the game shifted after Connelly’s interception led to Forst’s second touchdown of the night. The swing of momentum appeared to give Arcadia a comfortable 20-0 advantage and take the energy out of ACP’s sideline.

Quote of the game

“The thing that we’ve done is we’ve competed every week. We did a good job of just focusing on the game that’s at hand. We didn’t look beyond this, or any game, that we played. I think that’s been the key for us is that we’ve been able to focus, come out and play that game, and then get ready for the next one.” - Arcadia Head Coach Ray Brown on his team’s 10-0 regular season.

Up next

Both teams will make the 4A playoffs, which start week. The bracket placements will be released Saturday by the AIA.
