editor’s letter

(PHOTOGRAPH BY PAUL MARKOW)Ted DeGrazia started out with Zilch. Not in the lowercase sense of nothing — a starving artist who will work for food — but Zilch, with a capital “Z.” That was the unusual nickname of Mrs. Carlson, who was Ted DeGrazia’s Brian Epstein. “Talent alone is not enough,” Joe Stacey wrote in March 1983. “Ted DeGrazia might have been Arizona’s most illustrious bar mural painter if he’d not been discovered by Mary Helen ‘Zilch’ Carlson.” Her husband, Raymond, was equally impressed.Mr. Carlson was our founding father. Our editor emeritus. Joe Stacey was his successor, who added, “Make no mistake about this truth: Arizona Highways discovered Ted DeGrazia and put him onstage.”The initial spotlight was in February 1941 — we’ve resurrected that story inside. A few years later,…

(PHOTOGRAPHS: TYLER KNORR)CHELS KNORRFor this month’s story on Ted DeGrazia’s Gallery in the Sun (see The Gallery, page 46), we turned to Chels Knorr, who has a background in art but wasn’t familiar with DeGrazia before this assignment. “I took art all through school,” she says, “and I have a deep appreciation for its creators. Nowadays, I don’t produce much of it myself, but I love to wander art museums for hours, and my husband and I have a small, modest collection in our home.” Knorr knew DeGrazia was an artist but hadn’t heard of the gallery, and she was surprised to find about 15,000 of his pieces are housed there. “To be so prolific, disciplined and committed to routine is incredible,” she says. “He painted a few self-portraits, and…

editor@arizonahighways.comHi, my name is Cicily, and I am 8 years old. I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I like going on trips to the places Arizona Highways has in the magazine. My mom, dad, sister and Grampy Tim like to have adventures together. We get good ideas for these adventures from Arizona Highways. It is always fun. I like it, too.Cicily Lenartz, PhoenixApril 2019As recent Arizonans (December 2017), my husband and I are delighted each month upon the arrival of Arizona Highways. It’s our “go to” source for everything we want to know about our new state — hiking, biking, road trips, history, dining and festivals. The challenge is: What to do next? With the April issue [Grazing Arizona], it was no contest: Cottonwood for Philly cheesesteak. My husband was raised…

gilded flickers

The gilded flicker (Colaptes chrysoides) is a large woodpecker found in the American Southwest. It lives primarily in the desert, nesting in holes of giant saguaro cactuses. The male flicker is very defensive of its nesting territory, protecting it with calling, drumming and other aggressive displays. Bright yellow underwings set this bird apart, as does the red “mustache” stripe on the male. These ground-foraging birds enjoy a diet of mostly ants and other insects, but also will eat fruits, seeds and nuts. Our photographer captured this gilded flicker in midair, next to a saguaro.ADDITIONAL READING: To learn more about Arizona’s wildlife, pick up a copy of the Arizona Highways Wildlife Guide, which features 125 of the state’s native birds, mammals, reptiles and other animal species.
