Coyotes Activation at Westgate 1

Coyotes Fan Deals at Westgate Start Tonight

Westgate Entertainment District and the Arizona Coyotes have teamed up for the second consecutive year to present fans with pre-game entertainment and activities on the Westgate Plaza prior to the Coyotes Opening Night game on Thursday, October 9 versus the Winnipeg Jets and the team’s second home game against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, Oct. 11.

The Westgate Events Plaza, which is located directly outside of Gila River Arena will play host to fan activations including a live 80′s cover band, Coyotes-themed inflatables, interactive fan experiences, a ball hockey rink (Thursday), a synthetic ice rink (Saturday) and Arizona Sports 98.7, 98KUPD and 100.7 KSLX will be on hand with live radio broadcasts. In addition, the Coyotes will create a Winter Wonderland outside Gila River Arena by filling the sky with a snow flurry.

The pre-game festivities and live music will begin at 5:00 p.m. both nights and continue through 6:30 p.m.  Before each game, fans are encouraged to come early and stay late at Westgate and frequent the many restaurants, bars and retailers that will be offering specials for Coyotes fans all season long.

“We’re pleased to once again partner with the Coyotes to amp up the fan experience for all home games,” said Jeff Teetsel, development manager of Westgate Entertainment District. “Westgate provides a unique setting for hockey fans with the combination of more than 20 restaurants, bars and retailers steps from Gila River Arena in conjunction with activities, music and team-themed experiences. We value our relationship with the Coyotes and are proud to help present a vibrant fan environment that rivals anything in the country.”

“We are extremely excited about our Opening Night,” said Coyotes Co-Owner, President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc. “We encourage all of our great fans to come early to Gila River Arena and Westgate Entertainment District to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere on the plaza before we drop the puck to begin the Coyotes 2014-15 regular season.”

Grand Canyon - AZ Business Magazine Mar/Apr 2011

Arizona strikes deal to reopen Grand Canyon

Arizona reached a deal Friday with the Interior Department to pay for Grand Canyon National Park to completely reopen using state and local funds during the federal government shutdown.

The deal means the park should reopen Saturday, allowing thousands of tourists to flock to the natural wonder in northern Arizona, said Andrew Wilder, spokesman for Republican Gov. Jan Brewer.

Arizona will pay the national Park Service $651,000 to keep the Grand Canyon open for seven days. The $93,000 a day is less than the $112,000 daily rate the federal government said this week was needed to fund the park operations.

In addition to state money, cash provided by the town of Tusayan and raised from private business would also be included in the funding.

Park spokeswoman Kirby-Lynn Shedlowski said Friday evening that officials at the park hadn’t been notified of the deal and were awaiting word.

Brewer had been pushing to only use state money to open a portion of the park, something the Interior Department said Thursday it would not contemplate because of the complexities of keeping some parts of individual national parks closed while other parts were opened.

National parks in Utah began opening Friday after Gov. Gary Herbert sent $1.67 million to the U.S. government, while Colorado paid $360,000 to reopen Rocky Mountain National Park through Oct. 20.

Brewer and the state’s congressional delegation had been lobbying the Obama administration to allow reopening of the park since shortly after it closed Oct. 1. Three other states also made the request about their parks.

Senate strikes fiscal cliff deal

The Senate has passed legislation to block the impact of across-the-board tax increases and spending cuts that make up the fiscal cliff.

The vote was an overwhelming 89-8 and came well after midnight on New Year’s Day.

A House vote is expected before Wednesday.

The White House-backed legislation would prevent middle-class taxes from rising, and raise rates on incomes over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples.

It also blocks spending cuts for two months, extends unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless, prevents a 27 percent cut in fees for doctors who treat Medicare patients and prevents a spike in milk prices.

A last-minute addition would also prevent a $900 pay raise for members of Congress from taking effect in March.

Toyota signs deal with Ariz.-based Vantage Mobility International

Executives with Toyota Motor Sales, USA and Vantage Mobility International (VMI), a leader in the manufacture and distribution of wheelchair accessible vehicles, have signed an agreement authorizing VMI to convert the top-selling Toyota Sienna into a wheelchair accessible minivan using the patented Northstar in-floor ramp system. The agreement was executed on August 23, 2012, in Torrance, California.  VMI will begin accepting consumer orders for a limited number of the 2012-2013 model Toyota Sienna VMI Northstar minivan conversions through authorized VMI mobility dealers beginning October 1.

“We’re pleased to have established a partnership with Toyota Motor Sales, USA,” said Doug Eaton, president and CEO of VMI.  “Toyota has earned a reputation for leading in customer loyalty, which is why our customers have wanted VMI to offer a Toyota Sienna for years. This agreement will give them the Toyota that they’ve dreamed about.”

Toyota Mobility, a group within Toyota Motor Sales USA, is committed to providing solutions that serve the mobility needs of consumers to enhance their quality of life.  Toyota began providing mobility solutions in 2001.  This is the first time that Toyota and VMI have worked together.

“True to our brand promise, Toyota Mobility is focused on providing our customers with ‘More Options, Less Compromise’.  Therefore, we are very excited about the opportunity we now have with VMI as another conversion solution for the Toyota Sienna”, said Mark Oldenburg, national fleet marketing, mobility and strategic planning manager.   “We’re also confident that our customers will be pleased once they see and experience the new Toyota Sienna with the VMI Northstar conversion.”

Based in Arizona, VMI offers a full range of minivan and full-size van conversions for those in wheelchairs through a global network of dealers.  For 25 years, VMI has been trusted for providing cutting-edge products, including full-size and minivan conversions, platform lifts, scooter and wheelchair lifts and transfer seats. VMI’s Northstar conversion is the only in-floor ramp system currently available on all major minivan models through mobility dealers nationwide.

“VMI is pacing the build of Sienna’s at smaller quantities from previous product launches to ensure our commitment to quality,” said Eaton.  “Initially it will be harder to get one but you only get one chance to do a Toyota right.”

As part of the program, Toyota Mobility will provide up to $1,000 in customer assistance to help offset the cost of any qualified adaptive equipment or conversion for drivers and/or passengers when installed on any eligible purchased or leased new Toyota.
