 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Choosing between Asian or Mexican food has gotten a little easier for Valley foodies with the opening of Sumo Maya in Scottsdale. The new restaurant combines both types of cuisines for one unique flavor and experience.


 3TV's Heidi Goitia spoke with chef Herb Wilson about the restaurant's interesting menu and decor. A large, very realistic, custom-built tree is the most eye-catching design element within the restaurant, but the entire place has a contemporary design.

The menu features selections made in a wok, a pastor grill, a sushi bar, a Spanish plancha, a wood-burning grill, a deep frier and a guacamole bar. The drink selection is robust as well, with cocktails, tequilla, wine and sake all being featured.

The restaurant opened on June 16 at 3 p.m., just in time for the first patrons to watch team USA's first World Cup game. Sumo Maya opens daily at 3 p.m. for now, but they'll be adding lunch and brunch in the future. More information and a menu can be found on Sumo Maya's website.

La Loma Village

Sun Health Website

Posted: May 7, 2015


More than 184 people call the La Loma Village campus home, 53 of whom are in their 90s, representing almost 30 percent of the population. Seventy-one of current residents are “pioneers” who moved into La Loma when it first opened in 2005.

The longevity and vitality of La Loma’s residents is different from anything that executive director Susan Davis has seen before in her long career as a nurse and senior living administrator. “There’s a culture of closeness here. Residents and staff look out for each other and care about each other. It’s very positive. I don’t think there’s any question that it improves quality of life for our residents.”

The La Loma Village campus—consisting of independent living, in and outpatient rehabilitation, assisted living and skilled nursing—sits on a corner parcel of 353 acres donated to Sun Health in 1998 by Litchfield Park residents and scions Wallace and Edith Denny. Edith was the daughter of Litchfield Park founder Paul Litchfield, an executive with Goodyear Tire & Rubber who came to the area in 1910 to set up cotton-farming operations. The cotton was used to reinforce Goodyear tires. Paul Litchfield purchased the land and built a homestead just up the hill from where La Loma Village sits today. The Dennys took over the property in 1978.  

The Denny’s wanted the land they donated to be used for health care-related services for the community, in particular for seniors. Their vision became a reality when Sun Health and La Loma Senior Living Services opened La Loma Village in June 2005. It was later expanded in 2008.
