Carmel Farmers Market: Generations Pie Company, LLC
Writer // Janelle Morrison • Photography // Staff
Marketgoers may not know that the Carmel Farmers Market (CFM) is just as committed behind the scenes as they are out at the market every Saturday morning. The CFM committee visits its vendors who sell prepared foods at their commercial kitchens. A condition of being a CFM vendor, they must be certified and inspected by the County Health Department. We went along for a vendor visit with CFM committee members and paid a visit to one of our favorites—Generations Pie Company.
Carmel marketgoers were first introduced to Generations Pie Company at the Carmel Farmers Winter Market a few years back and are enjoying the delicious assortment of pies that are all named after relatives and friends of the owner, Maria Johnson. Johnson attributes her entrepreneurial spirit to her father, Eddie Woods Jr., and her passion for baking from her grandmother, Hattie Leota Overton Mann. Johnson learned by watching her grandmother throughout her youth and applies the same “from-scratch” methods and recipes that were handed down or created by her grandmother. While developing her passion and skills for baking, Johnson graduated from Butler University with a business administration degree and earned her MBA from Anderson University. After a 35-year-long career as an accountant, Johnson retired in December of 2017 to focus on her company that she established in 2016 and which has become a popular vendor in area markets such as Carmel, Fishers, Brownsburg, Binford and City Market in downtown Indianapolis. Johnson spends 20-plus hours a week baking out of a commercial kitchen located in Fishers, Indiana. Customers and fans of Generations Pie Company taste Johnson’s 30-plus years of experience in every single bite. Out of this commercial kitchen, Johnson and her team of five talented and
dedicated individuals produce crowd-favorite pies and pastries, such as Hattie Leota’s Sweet Apple Pie, Winston’s Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie, Margaret’s Rhubarb Pie, Maria’s Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie, Sherry’s Cherry Pie, Peachie’s Peach Pie, Cinnamon Rolls, Pecan Sticky Buns, Sugar’s Cobblers and assorted Yvonne’s Sweet Breads. “My earliest memory of my grandmother was as a youth, and I would watch my grandmother—every week— make the pies from scratch,” Johnson shared. “It wasn’t until my late teens that I really got into baking.” Johnson and her helpers will prep and make the sinfully delicious pie crusts on Tuesdays and then bake the pies and prepare them for the markets on Thursdays and Fridays. “We will make somewhere around 100 pies a week,” Johnson said. “We make a lot of small pies too because people buy more of the smaller pies so they can enjoy more than one flavor of pie. People can preorder and special order through my website and can either pick up their pies here at the kitchen on days that I’m here [Tuesday, Thursday, Friday] or they can select a market closest to them and pick it up on Saturday.” When asked what her all-time favorite pie is, she replied, “Granny Suk’s Sweet Potato Pie. It was my great-grandmother Hattie McKinney Overton’s recipe, and it’s CARMEL MONTHLY

over 100 years old. People keep trying to get it from me, but I won’t give it out!” Johnson enjoys the Carmel Farmers Market a great deal and shared that she finds the market to be incredibly supportive to its vendors and the customers to be very engaging. “When I was new to the [Carmel Farmers] Market, people would come up and congratulate me,” Johnson said. “Everyone is very welcoming, and the customers give me feedback, which I appreciate. I get mostly positive feedback, but I listen and make improvements based on the feedback I get. I love the customer interaction that I get at this market. If I was in a store, I wouldn’t get that.”

Indiana’s First Wellness Community BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT
“Our homes, communities, and surrounding environment directly affect our daily behaviors and lifestyles, and together these determine up to 80-90% of our health outcomes.” (Global Wellness Institute, “Build Well to Live Well: Wellness Lifestyle Real Estate and Communities,” January 2018)
NEW KIND OF RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD D E S I G N E D TO S U P P O RT H E A LT H Y L I F E STY L E AND A SENSE OF COMMUNITY Writer // Janelle Morrison and Neil Lucas • Photography // Submitted
any of us today live in very large housing developments while at the same time experience little or no interaction with our neighbors. Feelings of inclusion and a sense of community are nearly obsolete in most suburban residential communities. The loss of a sense of community has driven astute developers throughout the globe and across the nation to rethink the way they are developing communities. Central Indiana’s premier community developer and home builder Duke Homes has introduced this global “wellness lifestyle community” concept here in Indiana with the launch of its latest community—Aberdeen.
WHAT DOES THE TERM “WELLNESS LIFESTYLE COMMUNITY” MEAN? Although new to Indiana, developers across the country are embracing the concept of creating communities with wellness lifestyle as the principal focus of the community’s design. As defined by Global Wellness Institute (GWI), “Wellness lifestyle real estate is defined as homes that are proactively designed and built to support the holistic health of their residents. Wellness community is a group of people
living in close proximity who share common goals, interests, and experiences in proactively pursuing wellness across its many dimensions. It can be rooted in a purpose-built physical space or can be cultivated around shared culture or social networks without purpose-built structures.” (GWI, “Build Well to Live Well”) In areas of the U.S. where “wellness living” has become an innovator in both urban and senior living markets, the concept is also attractive to millennials who are dismissing the expansive golf course communities of their parents’ generation and gravitating to developments that focus on old concepts made new again, such as sustainability and a sense of community. Another new buzz word, the term “agrihood”—short for “agricultural neighborhoods”— is a real estate buzz word that defines a concept conceived in the U.S. by innovators in the real estate industry who are developing and redeveloping communities around the idea of sustainability by incorporating the communities with working farms. There are approximately 150 agrihoods in the U.S. Duke Homes has introduced Indiana’s first agrihood with the launch of their newest residential community, Aberdeen.
THE LAUNCH OF DUKE HOMES’ ABERDEEN For nine generations, the Duke family has called the Center Grove area home. Michael “Mike” Duke is the owner of Duke Homes, and his great-great-great-great grandfather, John Duke, settled in the nearby area after the Revolutionary War, where the

Trails, Gardens, Organic Farm, Sport Courts, Much More! family has been farming ever since. Mike and his family were raised on the generational farm near the Aberdeen development in Bargersville, Indiana. For more than three decades, Duke and his team have been developing communities and building custom homes, creating a reputation for quality craftsmanship and integrity. “This is our 33rd year in business,” Duke said. “It started in 1986 prior to me graduating from [Indiana University] with a degree in finance and real estate. We’ve developed several neighborhoods, including Kensington Grove, Serenity Woods, and we build on undeveloped lots.” Duke Homes developed Aberdeen with a strong focus on developing amenities that cultivate connections to people and nature. The upscale subdivision, located in Center Grove, brings back timeless features within its rolling terrain, offering peace of mind, room to breathe and space to connect for all ages. Available lots average 1 acre and home prices—including lot—start at $650,000.
ABERDEEN’S UNIQUE AMENITIES Aberdeen’s agrihood areas will provide opportunities to get hands-on through cultivating, harvesting or partaking of various fruits and vegetables grown in common areas. This farm-to-table amenity will likely include more perennials than not in order to limit required maintenance. Provided programmed activities designed to engage residents of Aberdeen will include food truck Fridays, summer movies and/or concerts on the lawn
will eventually work with local organizations and nonprofits to fill in the voids of the community where the need for assistance exists.
DUKE HOMES AN AWARD WINNING BUILDER
Indianapolis, which may be appealing to employees commuting long distance for work. “A lot of people move to Bargersville because of the Center Grove Schools,” Duke said. “The schools have done a great job of not increasing taxes in addition to having excellent academic and athletic programs. There’s a lot going on in the town of Bargersville these days too. We’re excited about the I-69 interstate exchange that will be done in 2022. The interstate exchange will be two minutes from Aberdeen and will make us just that much closer to Indianapolis, so it will be an advantage for this area when it’s completed.”
and fitness classes in the community building. Aberdeen is in close proximity to Center Grove School District’s newest state-of-the-art elementary school, Walnut Grove. Within a five-minute drive of Aberdeen are Mallow Run Winery, Taxman Brewery and Johnson’s BBQ Shack. There are 12 excellent golf courses within a 25-minute drive for the avid golfer as well.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Aberdeen is located in the beautiful town of Bargersville, Indiana, in Johnson County, just 20 miles south of downtown Indianapolis. Commuting to Indianapolis, Nashville or Bloomington is convenient because of State Road 135, County Road 144 and State Road 37. With the expansion of I-69, Aberdeen is a convenient and short commutable distance to Columbus, Indiana, Bloomington and downtown
“Recognized as a best-ofshow award winner at past Home-A-Ramas, a top Indy custom home builder by the IBJ, and a 5 star home builder on Houzz.com, Duke Homes crafts timelessly designed homes that are sure to amaze. Each home is individually designed with the specific lot, wish list, design preferences, and functional needs of the client in mind. Rather than another standard neighborhood with identical or near-identical homes, Aberdeen aims to allow a unique array of different style homes bringing aesthetic beauty and diversity to the upscale neighborhood.” If you are interested in living in a wellness lifestyle community with innovative amenities and accessibility and are seeking the opportunity to build your custom dream home on a spacious lot with a family-owned and -operated builder that has vested interests throughout the community, do not wait—contact Duke Homes and schedule a tour of Aberdeen today!

1988, Mr. Blair retired and sold the company to his trusted and experienced longtime employee Jim Meyer and his wife, keeping the company very much in the family that had made it so successful. Meyer’s daughter, Jennifer Penwell is also a part of the business.
Blair Windows & Doors:
BLAIR IS A TRUE WINDOW COMPANY
A C U STO M E R - F I R ST A P P R OAC H TO P R E M I U M W I N D OW S A N D D O O R S
One of the things Gene Blair did that made Blair Window successful—and unique—was he made it a point to not only supply products but also to service the products he sold. He didn’t rely on the manufacturers of his windows and doors to send their service people; instead, he sent his own service people, who knew the job and the product inside and out. “And we continue doing that today,” said Meyer. Meyer differentiates his company from others in the market by saying they are a “true window company, not a sales company that happens to sell windows.”

It’s one of the burdens of home ownership. You answer the phone or door to find a sales rep on the other side, trying to hard sell you on something for your house. Window replacement companies are notorious for following a sales model similar to aluminum siding sales from the 1970s— annoying unsolicited phone calls, obnoxious robo calls and unrelenting door-to-door salespeople interested only in offering you a boilerplate solution that may or may not be what you actually need, if you even need it.
lair Windows & Doors of Indianapolis, family owned since 1955, is not that kind of company. They are the very definition of customer first service. We spent some time with owner Jim Meyer, operations manager Chris Cline and office manager Jennifer Penwell, talking about Blair’s window and door offerings to the central Indiana market and how they choose to op-
AN EMPHASIS ON RESPECTING THE CUSTOMER Blair Windows & Doors doesn’t sell by buying leads or canvassing neighborhoods. You won’t receive a telemarketing call from them or a have a salesperson show up unexpectedly at your door. Meyer and his team believe that the “people we work with are human beings. They should be treated respectfully.” That respect is shown in how they approach the estimating process. Many companies will try a high-pressure approach to close the deal with you that day. Blair Windows & Doors, instead, has

A FAMILY BUSINESS Blair Window was founded by Gene Blair in 1955 and originally worked only with building professionals in new construction. Jim Meyer came to work for Blair Window in 1973, after two years of service in the United States Army. Meyer started as a truck driver, advanced to service manager and then moved into sales. In
a conversation with you. They visit with you to get all the information they need on what you want to do, whether that’s window replacement or door replacement. Then they do a detailed quote and email that to you. “Our job,” said Meyer, “is to inform people about what we have, and if they are informed properly, they will make the right decision on what to do.”
FULL-INSTALLATION AND FULLSERVICE WINDOWS AND DOORS Meyer and his team have over 60 years of experience in installing new windows and doors, and they offer full installation and full service on all their products. In addition to new construction, Blair Windows & Doors works with remodelers and homeowners on replacement windows, including vinyl windows and wood windows, and door replacement for patio doors, sliding-glass doors, entry doors and double entry doors, steel entry doors, fiberglass entry doors and custom wood entry doors. Meyer added, “We try to cover from the smaller houses all the way up into the very highend custom homes.” Blair Windows & Doors In Historic Irvington 440 S.

processes and how we communicate as a team and with our customers is what makes the custom home building process an easier and more enjoyable experience for our customers. Communication makes a difference, and it makes our customers happy.”
INDIANA’S DISTINCTIVE HOME BUILDER Writer // Janelle Morrison • Photography // Submitted
Are you looking for a local custom home builder or large-scale remodeler in the greater Indianapolis metropolitan area that you can actually trust? If integrity, honesty and experience are qualities you are seeking, then look no further than Carrington Homes—one of Indy’s most reputable and respected custom home builders. Carrington Homes was established by Chuck, Sandy and Carl McIntyre in 1992. The principles that the McIntyre’s built the foundation of their company upon were passed to their son, Carl, who is now the owner and leads a team of 12 dedicated and talented team members. Carrington Homes has built more than 300 custom homes and is building in distinctive custom home communities such as Holliday Farms, currently under development in Zionsville, Indiana.
arrington Homes specializes in new construction and large-scale remodels. McIntyre has grown his boutique custom home construction company over the last 27 years to where Carrington Homes is recognized as one of Indy’s most reputable and respected builders in the local market. McIntyre is a past president of the Building Association of Greater Indianapolis (2007) and is a current member of the board of directors for Building Partners of Central Indiana.
THE CARRINGTON HOMES EXPERIENCE There are many custom home builders, contractors and remodelers in the local
WHAT CAN CUSTOMERS EXPECT BEFORE THE BUILDING PROCESS? “We have an initial meeting where we sit down and listen to our customers.” McIntyre explained. “At this point, we go over a questionnaire to determine our clients’ expectations. What do they want in their new home? Where do they want to build? When would they like to move in? What is their budget? Do they want an in-house design or would they like to use an outside design partner? Carmel based Stephen Goldberg at Goldberg Design Group works with us on many of our projects.” McIntyre wants to learn as much as possible about what the customer wants so that he and his team can provide preliminary pricing on the project that includes what our customers want. “The questionnaire is not the final answer—the customers will make changes—but it’s a starting point,” McIntyre said. “With this process, everyone knows the budget before final drawings are created.”
market who can work with home additions and remodeling projects, but Carrington Homes has the experience and the knowledge behind it to build a home or remodel a large-scale project on a level that sets it apart from its competitors. McIntyre emphasized that communication and proven processes are what set his company apart from other local custom home builders. “One of the main things that differentiates us is that we are a little smaller than some of the other builders in the market,” McIntyre said. “That allows us to be more engaged and able to communicate more effectively with our customers. We are adaptive, performance driven and definitely team oriented. I believe our
“So, after we’ve provided final pricing and a full set of specifications to our customers, we move into the contract phase and from there into the construction phase—communicating with the customers throughout the entire process—and then they move in.
HOME-A-RAMA 2020 AT HOLLIDAY FARMS Carrington Homes is proud to be a participating builder in the 2020 Home-A-Rama, presented by BAGI (Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis), that will be featuring Holliday Farms. If you are considering designing and building a custom home or are in the market for a large-scale remodel or addition to your existing home in the Zionsville, Carmel, Westfield, Fishers, Geist, Indianapolis or other greater metropolitan communities, contact Carl McIntyre and his team at Carrington Homes and start the process of making your dream home a reality.

a homeowners policy to cover a major catastrophe and to satisfy a mortgage company’s requirement. Homeowners will ask for a $500 or $1,000 deductible policy quote but may not ask anything else— for instance, what, if any, exclusions are written in the policy regarding wind or hail damage? What most people don’t realize is that storm damage can come with exclusions and a 1% deductible, which is different than the $500 or $1,000 deductible that is stated in the policy.” HVR deals with every insurance company on a daily basis every year and has extensive knowledge in how the companies work in regard to estimating and processing claims. HVR works with the insurance companies from the start of the restoration process all the way to completion to ensure that the homeowners don’t have to “fight” with their insurance company to get the repairs done correctly.

Would you know what to do if your home or structure suffered weather-related damage? When was the last time you reviewed your insurance policy? Do you understand your policy well enough to know exactly what it covers and what it doesn’t? When the “improbable” happens and you need a credible and certified storm restoration expert to help guide you through the process, contact Home Value Renovation (HVR) to repair or rebuild your property to “better-than-prestorm” condition.
VR specializes in weather-related restoration work: roof damage, window damage and siding damage. HVR’s extensive knowledge of property inspections, and end-to-end insurance claim management, make it a leader in the storm damage restoration industry. HVR is fully licensed, bonded and insured, and the company offers complimentary on-site property inspections and damage estimates.
WHY CHOOSING LOCAL AND EXPERIENCED RESTORATION CONTRACTORS MATTERS Mike Redman, president and owner of HVR, is a local
contractor with more than 20 years of storm damage and home remodeling experience. Redman looks to educate homeowners before they are in dire need of his services and expertise. He said it really begins with educating homeowners about how to shop for property or homeowners insurance. “Educating people before they buy insurance is the ideal situation,” Redman said. “In a perfect world, we would start the conversation at the point where the homeowner is shopping for insurance. Typically, people just call the agent and company that they’ve been with the longest and get a quote for
customers is that we offer them a no-nonsense 50-year warranty that is transferable to the next homeowner. If I sold my company, went out of business or anything happens with my company and the homeowner needed a new roof or service, he/she would call GAF with the warranty registration number they were assigned after the initial installation and GAF will send out another master elite contractor to service or replace the roof at no cost to the homeowner.”
NO DOWN PAYMENTS OR UPFRONT FEES HVR never takes deposits on any storm restoration project before the work starts. When asked why, Redman explained, “Typically, we are 100% completed with the job before we get paid, and it can take up to 90 days to get paid for the job, so there is no fear from the homeowners because we take all that off the table.”

The summer festival season isn’t complete until someone yells “Opa!” while feasting on gyros and spanakopita at the Indianapolis GreekFest, happening August 23–25. Festivalgoers have been enjoying the sights, sounds and aromas at GreekFest while celebrating the Orthodox faith and Hellenic Culture for nearly half a century. GreekFest is an annual family-oriented festival that has grown out of and into new locations before settling into its location in Carmel, Indiana, in 2008.
he vision of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church’s Father Andrew Georgaroudakis—who initiated GreekFest in 1973—in addition to the dedicated parishioners and volunteers, has led the festival into its 46th year and remains one of Central Indiana’s favorite annual community events. Renee Brochhagen, secretary and marketing director at GreekFest, expanded on how the parishioners and volunteers add to the festival’s success. “Our parishioners are so devoted to helping
it [GreekFest] grow and to sharing our heritage and faith,” she said. “I think that contributes a lot to the success of it. We also have volunteers from outside of the parish who volunteer and help with the festival. For instance, we have volunteers who like to help during our baking sessions, where we bake cookies to sell at the festival. They are looking to get involved in the community and enjoy learning more about Greek culture.” GreekFest’s “president emeritus” Marika Kalyvas Bagios added, “The parishioners and volunteers go out of
their way to make it [GreekFest] special for everybody who attends. We adopt the attitude of ‘Come to our house.’ You’re not just coming to a festival, to a church or an event; you’re coming to our house, where we love to entertain people. That’s what Greeks like to do—we love to entertain. We want you to come and relax, enjoy the sights and sounds and have a good time. GreekFest is a great place for ‘people watching.’ Come watch and listen to the band and have a good time!” While GreekFest aims to entertain and educate the attendees, it also fund-

raises for Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral’s many outreach programs and ministries that serve the Carmel and surrounding communities in various ways. The festival brings in an average of 10,000–15,000 attendees each year over the festival weekend and continues to grow in attendance via word of mouth and digital marketing efforts. “We’ve become more ‘digital’ in recent years,” Brochhagen shared. “We promote [the festival] on our Facebook page and will tweet throughout the festival on Twitter for those following.” Festivalgoers are encouraged to share their photos and “tag” Indianapolis Greek Festival on Facebook as well as share their experiences throughout the festival this year. Be sure to check out all of the highlights that include the Hellenic Dance Troupe. The Troupe represents the Hellenic Dance Program, a ministry that engages youth and adults in Orthodox Christian Fellowship and provides an opportunity for them to
experience Hellenic culture through folk dance. Members of the Troupe will act as “ambassadors” this year during the festival and will invite attendees to learn the dances and join them during the exhibitions. All attendees are encouraged to don their “Greek” attire and come dressed in costume this year as a way to increase cultural appreciation throughout the festival. Don’t miss out on a festival favorite, loukoumades, along with many other examples of authentic food, Greek wine and craft beer at this year’s GreekFest. Admission to the festival is free, so bring your family and friends and enjoy the guided cathedral tours, live music and dancing and children’s activities throughout the entire weekend! Brochhagen expressed, “We want people to come out and enjoy all the sights, sounds and aromas of GreekFest. Come out and make some new friends!”

WELCOME TO THE 2019
fter twelve years the Carmel Artomobilia presented by KART Auction Services continues to provide a unique experience for automotive enthusiasts from around the Midwest to enjoy an eclectic collection of automobiles nestled in and around the fine galleries, restaurants and retail shops of the Carmel Arts & Design District. This year you’ll enjoy more than twenty-five judged classes and fifteen enthusiast corrals hosting more than 400 vehicles ranging from Classic Cars to European Sports Cars to Muscle Cars to Super Cars. In addition, you’ll enjoy our new event-within-an-event, call Porsche-Palooza presented by Tom Wood Porsche. Here, you’ll see 100 Porsches between 1954 and 2019 hosted by the Indiana Chapter of Porsche Club of America. Finally, please don’t miss our collection of Lamborghini cars as we celebrate our twelfth year with an iconic collection of twelve-cylinder Lamborghini supercars from the past 50 years. While our judging teams will evaluate and select “Artomobilia Best in Show”, “Artomobilia Penultimate”, and “Artomobilia Best in Class” winners from the entrants in our judged car classes during our Awards Ceremony that begins 3:30pm, our primary objective is to
simply enjoy and indulge in nearly 100 years of automotive art and design. The Artomobilia represents a labor of love for all those involved. I would like to personally thank the members of the Artomobilia Committee, Class Judges, and Event Volunteers who have contributed their time and talent to assemble and present this outstanding collection of cars. Equally, I would like to also thank the many exhibitors that choose to display and share their beautiful cars with us… and no-doubt create new car enthusiast in the process. Building on that, I would like to thank the many sponsors that make this event possible and open to everyone in the community. Most notably, our partners at KAR Auction Services, the Carmel Arts & Design District, as well as Indiana Design Center, SILO Auto Club & Conservancy, Barrett-Jackson, Datawa. re, Classic Auto Insurance, Tom Wood Porsche, Maker’s Mark, and, our print media partner, Collective Publishing, publisher of Carmel Monthly and Zionsville Monthly magazines. In addition to the many local automotive product and service organizations that sponsor our classes and corrals. I would encourage you to seek-out these organizations and support them, as they are instrumental in assuring on-going quality and sustainability of our community event. Finally, a special thanks goes to the City of Carmel, the Carmel Arts & Design District and the nearly 100 galleries, designer showrooms, retailer shops, restaurants and business in the district for hosting the Artomobilia over these twelve years. It has provided an unmatched environment for presenting an outstanding collection of cars. I hope you enjoy the 2019 Carmel Artomobilia as much as we do. Enjoy,

A CELEBRATION OF
AUTOMOTIVE ART & DESIGN
SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 2019 / 12:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M. Writer // Janelle Morrison • Photography // Anthony Ross Tyler
or 12 years, Artomobilia has continued to feature a distinct gathering of recognized artists, collector cars and automotive enthusiasts, showcased on the streets of the Carmel Arts & Design District. Featuring more than 400 enthusiast and collector cars on the streets of Carmel, the Artomobilia boasts one of the most eclectic gatherings of original, period-correct cars, including Super Car, Exotic, Sports Car, Classics, Racers, Historically Preserved, Indiana Built, Sedan/ Coupe and more at its three key events: Shift, Fuelicious and Artomobilia. Each of the highlighted events also acts as a fundraising arm for specific area charities that the organizers of Artomobilia wholeheartedly support. Artomobilia focuses on display and appreciation over competition, and although each of the automobiles is truly magnificent, this event is not just about cars; it’s about the art and automotive enthusiasts. This is the sixth year that Carmel Monthly has participated as a media sponsor and is proud to support the organizers and volunteers of this remarkable event weekend. LA CORSA DEI TORI “RUNNING OF THE BULLS” This year’s theme for Artomobilia, “La Corsa Dei Tori” or “Running of the Bulls,” celebrates Ferruccio Lamborghini and the cars that bear his name. This year’s attendees will have the incredible opportunity to see a storied array of exceptional performance cars whose reputation and styling have defined, and redefined, the category of Super Car for more than half a century. Five remarkable examples of Lamborghini’s legacy were photographed in a rare opportunity that is featured on this month’s cover of Carmel Monthly.
As always, the exceptional work of Anthony Ross Tyler features an iconic visual timeline that highlights the best of Lamborghini ingenuity and design over the last 50 years. Tyler, a longtime supporter of and regularly featured photographer at Artomobilia, shared what it was like to have in his possession for a few hours some of the finest Super Cars ever to grace the automotive world. A LAMBORGHINI POSTER FOR THE AGES “The project started out like it normally does where John [Leonard] sends me an email and says, ‘Hey, man, we’ve got a project for this year’s Artomobilia,’” Tyler said. “This year, he sends me an image that he got off the internet—a graphic design, not a photograph—of the topline silhouettes of all five major Lamborghini body styles on top of each other. “He

[Leonard] told me he wanted that but with my photos. I was like, ‘OK, cool,’ but I wanted to do something more, and so I wanted to shoot another version where we showed the details on the sides of the body styles as well.” Tyler is renowned for his unique and extraordinary lighting techniques and composition. Fans of his artistry have come to expect a high level of attention to detail and a certain “mood” that only Tyler can create in the images that he produces. His incomparable work gives the automobile he is shooting a personality of its very own. Finding inspiration from his youth, Tyler revisited his favorite Lamborghini posters that adorned his walls as a typical redblooded American boy. “When I was between the ages of 9 and 11, I had posters of cars, and I remember the iconic ’80s poster of a black Lamborghini Countach and another of a white Lamborghini Countach—a profile with a checkerboard floor. I had the black one on my wall that I loved forever. It was smoky with an industrial/concrete background, so I started thinking that I’d do a profile [of the Lamborghinis] and light them from the top, then make a poster out of it. So, I pitched it to John [Leonard] and told him that I’d make a poster out of all five profiles with an industrial-like environment, like something that I had on my wall when I was 9 years old, and he said, ‘Do it, man.’”
Carmel_2019_Artomobilia_Lamborghininas owners story.indd 2
Tyler laid out his lighting and marked where the cars would each roll in, one by one, and shot each of the five featured Lamborghinis as though they were aligned and stacked perfectly on top of one another. “My thought process throughout the project was, ‘How do I make something that feels like and had that vibe of the ’80s posters, but do it in a way that brings fine art photography and automotive photography together?’ Ultimately, my goal was to make an image of all five Lamborghinis that I would want as a kid but was mature enough and artistic enough that it could sit in a fine art gallery.” THE 1969 LAMBORGHINI MIURA P400S (S)
Above: 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S —Tim Mathile, owner
Tim Mathile, owner of the 1969 Lamborghini Miura S featured on this month’s cover and official poster for Artomobilia, shared his story on how he came to appreciate cars as a youth and his decision to purchase the Miura S. “A neighbor of mine had a ’69 Corvette Stingray 427, and his son and I were best friends,” Mathile said. “One day we were looking at the car, and his dad came out and said, ‘Hey, guys, you can see it better if you’re inside of it.’ So, of course we climbed inside, and since we were small enough, we both fit in the side seat, and his dad got in the front seat and started it [the car] up. I remember like it was yesterday, the smell of the octane and the noise of the 427 engine. I got the bug right there, that very moment.” Fast forward to 2002, Mathile and his wife, Peg, had always wanted a sports car. After a nudge from fate, he placed a
bid on the 1969 Lamborghini Miura S that had been seized and put up for auction. “I placed the bid, and lo and behold, I won it,” Mathile said. “It [the Miura S] came from Cincinnati, and it needed a lot of work because it had been neglected. So, I started tearing it apart with the intention that I would restore it myself. I got it all the way down to the bare metal and realized that as a guy with ADD, it probably wasn’t a good idea to try and put it back together again. So, I had it professionally restored.” It took three years for Mathile’s Miura S to be fully restored, but once the restoration was completed, he took the car to Ault Park, where it captured the Espirit d’Sport—Best of Show—for the sports cars. It has since been featured in many other high-profile platforms, including on Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” with Chris Rock. Upon further research of that segment, it was discovered, as reported by New York Magazine, that the two award-winning comedians/actors were actually pulled over in Mathile’s Miura S while filming the segment. What a story to own in addition to the fine automobile itself. Mathile has an impressive collection that he has grown over the years, but his true enthusiasm lies with the Lamborghini brand. “For me, it’s the design aspect of the Lamborghini and the fact that they’re more limited in numbers produced. This Miura S was one of 140 made.” The 3.9 liter V-12 engine with its ability to top out at 163 mph and hit zero to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds is just another reason to love the 1969 Miura S. “It’s not really comfortable driving long distances, and they don’t have a lot of luggage room,” Mathile quipped. “But I love the design of the Lamborghinis— they’re always cutting-edge.” Below: 1988 Lamborghini Countach QV —Brad Ward, owner

THE 1994 LAMBORGHINI DIABLO SE
Above: 1994 Lamborghini Diablo SE —Scott Hannan, owner
Celebrating 30 years since the release of the first model, Lamborghini produced only 150 of the 1994 Lamborghini Diablo SE. Owner Scott Hannan shared why he is a fan of this particular model. “My [Diablo SE] is number two out of the production,” Hannan shared. “It’s white, and I believe there’s only two of the white [Diablo SE] from the special edition, so that’s truly uncommon. This was a demonstrator model for the U.S., so there’s only 25 in the country, which makes it a special car. What makes it special for me is that it is one of a very limited production.” Compared to the Ferrari F40, the Lamborghini Diablo SE is faster with a V-12 520 hp engine that goes zero to 60 in 3.1 seconds, and according to Hannan, “It’s a pretty fast car. I haven’t driven many Ferraris, but the closest comparison [to the Diablo SE] is the F40. The Diablo SE is still pretty much a touring road car and weighs about 3,100 pounds, so it’s fairly heavy.” For Hannan, a big part of his enthusiasm for Lamborghini is the driving experience itself. “Even though [Lamborghini] tried to cut some of the weight in this model, it’s not like a Lotus that is lower in speed but is also low weight comparatively and handles more quickly than Lamborghini, but Lamborghini is a lot more fun [to drive], in my opinion. One of the most fun things for me is that it has such a short nose on it and such a large windshield that it looks like
Carmel_2019_Artomobilia_Lamborghininas owners story.indd 3
you’re driving while looking through with a picture window in front of you. You’re right on the ground, and everything’s coming at you pretty fast.” When asked what advice he would share with car enthusiasts, particularly the younger enthusiasts, Hannan said, “I think cars, in general, whether it’s a Ford Focus, a Mustang, a Lamborghini or a Bugatti, you can find enjoyment in the car and in the mechanics behind it. Most of us grew up with ‘beater’ cars that we worked on, took apart and put back together, for the fun of it. If you’re lucky enough to be able to afford your ‘dream’ car, by all means get it because it’s fun to own, fun to drive and fun to just wash and wax them. To learn about cars and the mechanics behind them is an enjoyable lifelong endeavor.” THE 2018 LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR “The funny thing is, I never really considered myself to be a car guy,” Rick Shue said. “I didn’t really get the car bug until I hit the age of 50. Prior to that, my focus on cars— the four-door family sedan with lots of trunk space, good fuel economy that you can drive for 10 to 20 years.” Shue said that time and age caught up with him, and when he turned 50, he decided it was time to live a little or a lot, depending on your perspective. “I hit 50 and started thinking to myself that if I was going to do something in the way of [performance] cars, I’d better do it quickly because I’m going to look kind of funny when I’m in a wheelchair trying to get in and out of a sports car,” Shue half jested. “So, I threw caution to the wind and started buying cars that were fun to drive. It wasn’t too long after, I purchased my first Lamborghini, and it was an impulse purchase.” Shue had been working his way up the Mercedes-Benz Roadster class when he
had an epiphany; his current experiences weren’t sparking the excitement that he was looking for. He had always “settled” for nice but not top of the line. “I was always focused on practical and sensible cars, and it took me a while to grow out of that,” Shue admitted. “My first Lamborghini was the 2006 Gallardo—the entry-level Lamborghini. It was more affordable and not as powerful, but I like bright colors, and it was a nice pearl-yellow. I’ve always thought that yellow looked good on Lamborghinis. I enjoyed it immensely.” The newest addition to the Lamborghini legacy, the 2018 Lamborghini Aventador, is far from entry-level anything. It boasts a 6.5 liter V-12 729 hp engine and accelerates zero to 60 mph in a mindblowing 3.0 seconds. The Aventador tops out at 217 mph in case of a last-minute beer run and you’re already late for a gathering at the in-laws. “I’ve been really happy. It’s a great automobile to have and to enjoy,” Shue said. “I like the way it looks and feels. I climb into that thing, and it becomes an extension of my physical self. It’s very responsive and feels like a part of you rather than something you’re rattling around inside of.” Shue’s advice to those debating on whether or not to buy top of the line is, “At some point, you have to value the amount of time that you have left versus the things that you want to do. There’s a time to be conservative—as a youth—and then you reach a time when you are allowed to go out, splurge and have some fun before you end up in your final set of wheels that you’re pushing with your hands.” For a complete list of events and times of Shift, Fuelicious and Artomobilia, visit artomobiliaweekend.com.

THE DRIVING FORCE
BEHIND THE ARTOMOBILIA TEAM Writer // Janelle Morrison • Photography // Cardinal Acres Photography
What See would like for potential new volunteers to know about the Artomobilia team is, “I got involved a few years ago as a brand-new dad that doesn’t have any money to buy any kind of ‘fun’ car but was welcomed by this group without any discrimination at all. It is a really dynamic group of people with diverse backgrounds who have found a common bond and put on an incredible annual event together.” INTRODUCING “PORSCHE-PALOOZA” AT ARTOMOBILIA
hile the exhibitors and attendees are enjoying Artomobilia Weekend, there is a dedicated team of volunteers who are behind the scenes, parking the beautiful cars, assisting attendees and orchestrating what is one of the most exciting and unique weekend events in the Midwest. ARTOMOBILIA’S VOLUNTEER CORPS
We caught up with a couple of veteran volunteers with Artomobilia who shared their experiences and encouraged others who may be interested to join their team and experience the adrenaline rush and sense of fulfillment for themselves. “Artomobilia is a fantastic event,” Kevin See, Artomobilia volunteer, emphasized. “I was first attracted to it by
Carmel_2019_Artomobilia_Artomobilia Volunteers.indd 1
being just another local car nut, and I think I went my first year with my dad. Afterwards, I ended up seeking out John [Leonard] and asked how I could get involved. I enjoy the charitable aspect of the events and am very passionate about that.” See described Artomobilia as being a community event where there is something for everybody to enjoy. “There’s a community aspect to it, and that is one of the biggest things that makes it an enjoyable experience,” See said. “It doesn’t matter who you are or what kind of car you own— although there are some criteria that goes into the selection and judging process—but in general, we just want to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to have a really awesome experience.”
Brand new to Artomobilia this year is “Porsche-palooza.” The Artomobilia Team and the Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America joined forces to host an event-inside-anevent called Porsche-palooza. The event will highlight some of the very best 356s to the latest 992 and everything in between. If you attended or participated in CruZionsville, formerly in Zionsville, you know how great that event was, and the Artomobilia team is continuing it in spirit with its Porsche-palooza event. Longtime volunteer Larry Haskett has been volunteering at Artomobilia since its humble beginnings when it was first held nearly twelve years ago in a much less developed Carmel Arts & Design District. He met the co-founder John Leonard through their mutual association with the Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America. Haskett is also friends of CruZionsville founder Stephen Tarr, whose relocation to Florida is the reason for the event’s cessation.
2019-08-07 11:31 AM
“Steve [Tarr] started CruZionsville a few years ago and grew it from a 20 to 30 car show to a 100-plus car show that raised money for Alzheimer’s,” Haskett shared. “That show was highly successful for a one-day street show, and when Steve relocated to the south of Florida, John [Leonard] was able to transfer it this year as part of Artomobilia. The entry fees for Porsche-palooza will be donated to the Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America for them to, in turn, donate it to their charity of choice.” ALL RISE FOR THE ARTOMOBILIA JUDGES
Leading the judging team for Artomobilia is David Renshaw. Renshaw is a mechanical engineer by training
Carmel_2019_Artomobilia_Artomobilia Volunteers.indd 2
with an affinity for cars and inclusive events that bring a community together. “Artomobilia is not a hugely expensive show to enter your car in, and it’s free to the public,” Renshaw said. “With my engineering background, I try to bring some objectivity, as well as the subjectivity, to the judging process. Artomobilia is more of a ‘concourse-style’ show—it is not a deeply technical show. If you were to go to Bloomington Gold Corvette Nationals, for instance, they judge cars based on accuracy and details down to the nuts and bolts. We give it an overall objectivity score based on how original your car appears. I tell our judges that at the end of the day, if you’re struggling between two different cars, pick the one you would want to drive home!”
Renshaw explained that the judges will bump the scores up or down a point or two based on a couple of factors. “I tell the judges to bump it up if the car is exceptionally clean or bump it down if you see a dent or a tear,” Renshaw said. “We have awarded cars that had some rust that were all original and had never been touched. So, just because your car doesn’t necessarily look like a ‘show’ car, where everything is shiny and new, doesn’t mean that we won’t give it a nudge based on the fact it has been in the family since it was brand new and is 100% all original. Another one of the reasons why I love this show is because I like diverse cars, and [Artomobilia] is the perfect place to see a lot of really nice cars.”

AN ICONIC AUTOGRAPHED IMAGE FOR THE AGES
ast year, the Artomobilia team had an incredible and historic opportunity to capture an iconic image of three generations of the Ford GT in both road and race trim. With the assistance of the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Team, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, members of the Artomobilia Alumni and renowned photographer Anthony Ross Tyler, these images were captured, representing 60+ years of Ford Performance. This year, one of these images that has been signed by Edsel Ford II and drivers from the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing program will be on public display at the Indiana Design Center on Saturday during Artomobilia. A small and incredibly rare collection of last year’s Artomobilia Ford GT posters has made its way to Ford’s headquar-
Carmel_2019_Artomobilia_Last years poster.indd 1
ters to be signed by Ford himself. This collection has traveled across the Atlantic Ocean to the Le Mans 24 Hours in France and will be traveling to Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta this October, where the posters will be signed by more of the racing program’s drivers before being auctioned off. The proceeds raised will benefit charities supported by Artomobilia. One of the facilitators of this mission, Artomobilia volunteer Drew Yagodnik, shared more details about the signed posters. Yagodnik’s company, Classic Auto Insurance, is a sponsor of Artomobilia and also heads up a video team that has participated in both last year’s Ford GT photo shoot and this year’s Lamborghini photo shoot by Anthony Ross Tyler. Yagodnik’s video team is the talent behind the videos featured on Artomobilia’s website.
Yagodnik has also been herding the posters through the tedious process of obtaining the desired signatures. “My dad used to have an ’06 Ford GT, which he sold in 2014,” Yagodnik shared. “When he bought it, we got involved with the Ford GT Forum. Classic Auto Insurance has been a 10-year-plus sponsor of the Ford GT Forum, and John [Leonard] knew that we had a passion for Ford GT, so through mutual affiliations, we were acquainted.” Yagodnik reiterated what makes the Ford GT image of all three generations unique, with or without the rare signatures of Edsel Ford II and Ford GT race car drivers. “What makes [Tyler’s] shoot so unique is that while other people have somewhat replicated the image—to a certain degree—no one else has ever had the race car in the image,” Yagodnik expressed. “That’s what makes it super unique.” Yagodnik is optimistic that after the posters have gained additional signatures of the drivers at Road Atlanta, they will successfully be sold at auction, which will be held in front of a very specific and strategic audience of Ford GT enthusiasts. “At Road Atlanta, this October, there will be a gathering of 100 or so members of the Ford GT Forum,” he explained. “We will be auctioning off the posters that weekend in front of people that love the Ford GT.”

2019 SPECIALTY CLASSES
The following Specialty Classes highlight a broad cross-section of automotive design.
LAMBORGHINI PERFORMANCE This class will feature a broad-array of examples of the marque in the form of original, period-correct, specialty and race cars.
ALL YEARS This collection of iconic cars and trucks draws interest from their classic styling roots while integrating amazing advancements in automobile technology over the past 40+ years to enhance the performance, comfort and safety of these vehicles.
CARROLL SHELBY FORD CARS This class features original, period-correct Ford cars built by and/ or influenced by Carroll Shelby from the 50’s to the present day. Adopting Carroll’s no nonsense approach, these automotive icons will demonstrate how matching good-looks with superior power make for a winning combination every time.
EMERITUS This class features exclusively past year’s “Artomobilia First in Class” or “Artomobilia Best in Show” winners across all makes, models and years. Cars will be presented in the appropriate class, but will be designated as Emeritus, and not judged. Cars that have won, deemed as Emeritus, cannot win for a period of three (3) years. For example, a car winning in 2015 could not again win the same class until 2019.
PONTIAC GT0: 1964 – 1974 After hitting the half-century mark, the Pontiac GTO continues to serve as the foundation for the “Muscle Car” era in American automotive history. This class will feature all original, period-correct GTOs that were produced from 1964 – 1974.
PONTIAC GT0: 2004 – 2006 Building on the heritage of the GTO, entrants in this class feature the GTO revival from 2004 to 2006 model years represented by an import for Pontiac, a left-hand drive version of the Holden Monaro, itself a coupé variant of the Holden Commodore.
NEXT GENERATION This class features a cross-section of cars, all years, makes and models, which are owned by individuals 18 years or younger. Join the next generation of young car collectors, as we provide a forum for them to present their “First in Class” candidates.
THEN & NOW This class features original, period-correct models, both its past model alongside its present model. From Beetles to Challengers to Camaros, compare and contrast the heritage of the same marque over many years, and the modern designers “take” on an iconic shape.
AMERICAN SPORTS CARS: 1960 – 1973 This class features original or restored, period-correct American sports car models produced from 1960 –1973. Up until the OPEC gasoline crisis spoiled the party, American car-makers continued to roll out successive versions of fun, performance focused cars.
ANTIQUE: PRE-1924 This class features original and/or restored period-correct models, including Ford Model A, Ford Model T, and Brass-era cars. Representing the genesis of the automotive hobby, and the foundation for today’s familiar cars, this ancient iron, sets the stage for more technologically advanced mass-produced machines to come.
AMERICAN CAR: 1925 – 1954 This class features original or restored, period-correct American convertible, coupe, or sedan models produced from 1925 – 1954. Perhaps not your father’s Oldsmobile, but then again, maybe, this is the era when America’s cars of yesterday began to physically resemble cars of today.
AMERICAN SPORTS CARS: 1974 – PRESENT This class features original or restored, period-correct American sports car models produced from 1974 – Present. Despite whatever the fluctuating economic and cultural mood of the day, Americans have never lost their appetite for personal performance cars. These are the torch-bearers and survivors.
CLASSIC CARS: 1925 – 1948: This class includes “closed top” and “open top” original or restored, period-correct fine or unusual motor cars which were produced from 1925 – 1948. These unbridled cars prominently featured in films from Hollywood’s “Golden Age” come to life and provide a glimpse into the automotive lifestyle of a by-gone era.
AMERICAN CAR: 1955 – 1973 This class features original or restored, period-correct American convertible, coupe, or sedan models produced from 1955 – 1973. Fins, wide white-walls and increasingly chrome galore, these are the cars that spawned the Baby Boomer generation sometimes from the confines of their cavernous backseats.
AMERICAN SPORTS CARS: 1948 – 1959 This class features original or restored, period-correct American sports car models produced from 1948 –1959.Including examples like the original Chevy Corvette and Ford T-bird, these are examples of a post-war generation of coupes long on performance and cool design.
2019-08-07 10:39 AM
EUROPEAN CAR: 1925 – 1973 This class features original or restored, period-correct European convertible, coupe, or sedan car models produced from 1925 – 1973. Although many believe America has traditionally led the automotive way, this distinct group of convertibles, coupes and sedans deliver a slightly different “take” on American automotive sensibilities of the period with brands like Mercedes- Benz, BMW, Audi, Volvo, Volkswagen, Saab, Citroen, Peugeot, Alfa-Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and many more.
EUROPEAN CAR: 1974 – PRESENT This class features original or restored, period-correct European convertible, coupe, or sedan car models produced from 1974 – Present. Current generation Euro stars complete with style, quality and a foreign accent.
EUROPEAN SPORTS CAR: 1925 – 1960 This class features original or restored, period-correct European sports car models produced from 1925 –1960. Generally smaller and incredibly nimble machines, often outmatched by their heavier and more muscular American counterparts on the streets and in race courses across Europe.
EUROPEAN SPORTS CAR: 1961 – 1973 This class features original or restored, period-correct European sports car models produced from 1961 –1973. Cars in this class represent a unique time in automotive history when brave men drifted cars with high power, and low grip through the narrow streets of Europe and into the hearts of an adoring public.
EXOTIC: 1974 – 1995 This class features original or restored, period-correct, low-production or rare sports car models produced from 1974 – Present. Revel in the cars that are more frequently seen on adolescent boy’s walls than on local streets, and relive the excitement of distinct exotic shapes and sounds.
GRAND TOURING: 1974 – PRESENT This class features original or restored, period-correct, grand touring 2-door coupe models produced from 1974 – Present. Perfectly aligned with international sports car racing classes, these beauties are fast and fine.

MUSCLE & PONY: 1975 – PRESENT This class features original or restored, period-correct, muscle car or pony car models produced from 1975 – Present. Weathering economic and environmental storms, the survivors within this decidedly American class, now wildly reimagined and remain thriving still.
NON-MUSCLE: 1962 – 1974 This class features original or restored, period-correct, non-muscle car produced from 1962 – 1974. These models served as the economic underpinnings for “Muscle Car” era with low-horse power six-cylinder or eight-cylinder engines, with 2- or 4-barrel carburetors, and regularly delivered many a “family man” to and from the office.
SUPER CARS: 1974 – PRESENT This class features original or restored, period-correct, high-performance sports car models produced from 1974 – Present.

Debuting at Artomobilia for the very first time is an Arctic White 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 owned by Zionsville resident and business owner Paul Lewis. Lewis, a lifelong Corvette enthusiast, will also be making his first appearance at Artomobilia as an exhibitor.
ewis, a lifelong Corvette enthusiast, will also be making his first appearance at Artomobilia as an exhibitor. Lewis’ passion for cars began in 1967 when, at the age of 18, he saw a Marina Blue 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 and fell in love with it. “It was the most beautiful car that I’d ever seen,” Lewis said. “My whole life I’ve wanted one, and finally when I was 68 [years old], I got one. I spent three years hunting down all of the original parts, and now it has all original parts down to the battery. It’s a crowd-pleaser everywhere I drive it, but the car that I’ve been asked to bring to Artomobilia is my 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. I was told that [Artomobilia] has never had one exhibited before, so I
will bring it out for people to see a very unique Corvette.” When asked what makes that year and model unique compared to other Corvettes, Lewis replied, “The first time the ZR1 model appeared was in 1990. In 1971 and ’72, GM [General Motors] had a ZR1 package on the C3 car—known as the ‘Shark’—but it wasn’t an actual model until 1990 when GM released the ZR1 model. “I always like to get the last car that they [GM] made of a particular run because they’ve figured out all the bugs and fixed everything,” Lewis said. “The last car is generally the best one mechanical-wise and performance-wise. An interesting thing about the ZR1 is GM didn’t have an engine that would perform like they
wanted—they were trying to compete with Porsche and Ferrari—and fit in the car. So at that time, GM owned Lotus Racing from England, and they reached out to Lotus and asked them if they had an engine that they could put into the [new] Corvette and, lo and behold, they did, and they agreed to give GM the engine.” A fun fact that many car enthusiasts may not know about the 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is that this was the only time in GM’s history that they didn’t assemble the engine at the GM plant. As Lewis stated, “They [GM] didn’t have the wherewithal to do it. GM had the engines assembled by Mercury Marine in Oklahoma City. Mercury Marine is renowned for making boat motors.”
2019-08-06 2:02 PM
Lewis’ ZR1 has 407 horsepower and will do zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, topping out at 187 mph. It retailed in 1995 for $70,000. “Most of the ZR1s sold for $85,000 to $100,000,” Lewis said. “They sold over sticker in 1995 because only 448 were made, and there aren’t many of them out there. My car is number 439 and is one of
the 41 Arctic White ZR1s ever produced, which is another reason why I think Artomobilia wanted my car at the show.” Lewis recently entered his ZR1 in the Bloomington Gold Corvette Exhibition and won their BENCHMARK award. “For the ‘survivor’ judging portion, I had to drive my car around the Indianapolis
Motor Speedway three times to show them that it could do it, and they graded my car for originality. I was told that I was one of very few people to get 400 out of 400 points and zero deductions on the ‘survivor’ side of the judging. That was pretty awesome. I also entered my car in the NCRS [National Corvette Restoration Society] show, and it scored a 99% for having mostly original parts. It even has the original tires. The only things in or on the car that are not original are the battery and license plate. But I do have ‘1995 ZR1’ on the license plate! I hope that when people come out to Artomobilia, they will ask questions and learn about the history of the car. It really is an icon car for Corvette. My car has only 3,300 miles, so it’s pretty much a brand-new car, and people will be able to see what these cars looked like when they came out of the factory.”

Meet Noodles O p e n s
C a s t l e t o n
Writer // Janelle Morrison
Ren Yang, who is a former part owner and general manager of Carmel’s Koto Japanese Steakhouse, and his wife, Lin, have opened a new Asian fusion restaurant in the Castleton area called Meet Noodles. It is open for lunch and dinner.
ccording to Yang, he wanted Meet Noodles to be a place where friends would come to meet and enjoy, in a casual and friendly atmosphere, the noodle-based entrees that he and Chef Tang have created. Chef Tang has extensive experience, having been a chef in China for the past 20 years. However, the offerings he has created for Meet Noodles cannot be described as typical Chinese food. With seasoning influences from China, Japan, Vietnam and all over Asia, Meet Noodles takes noodles to a whole new level.
Meet Noodles offers some dishes with Japanese-style ramen noodles and others with freshly prepared hand-pulled noodles. Many of the dishes start with a broth base, but they also offer a few stir-fried entrees. They have an extensive menu of appetizers, which includes salads, edamame, calamari and more. The noodles at Meet Noodles are as fresh as possible with hand-pulled noodles being made from scratch every day in-house. Meet Noodles is located at 6368 E. 82nd St. in Indianapolis. This particular shopping area is becoming a hub for Asian
food with Meet Noodles, Viet Hua Food Market and the Tsaocaa shop, which offers a delicious mix of bubble teas, all sharing the same parking lot. After dinner or lunch at Meet Noodles, don’t forget to stop by and grab a bubble tea as a nice after-dinner refresher. In addition to Meet Noodles, in spring 2020 Yang will open a new restaurant in the Zionsville/Whitestown area that will be a sushi/tennepamaki-style restaurant. If you’re looking for a delicious lunch or dinner in a casual-style atmosphere, stop by Meet Noodles.

SS AMERICA O R C
Sending a Cross and Path to Salvation to every home in America
On a Mission from God CROSS AMERICA’S LOFTY GOAL IS TO SEND A CROSS TO EVERY HOME IN THE UNITED STATES. Writer // John Cinnamon Photography // Submitted
here may come a day when you walk to your mailbox and find a burgundy, 6” x 6” envelope with this simple message printed on the front: “People who don’t know you have prayed over this and are praying for you now.” When you open it you’ll find a small aluminum cross embossed with ‘Romans 10:9’, a reference to the Bible verse that describes the path to heaven. Well over a million households in America have already received this packet in the mail, and it is the goal of Cross America to get a cross and the message of salvation into every home in the coun-
try. Considering there are more than 114 million homes in the U.S., that’s a pretty lofty goal. But Terry Merrell has faith. Literally. Terry Merrell is the Chairman of Cross America and the idea of sending a cross to every household was his brainchild. “Going back to my faith, [the Bible] talks about the great commission,” said Merrell. “That’s the last
thing Jesus said when he left this earth, he said, ‘Go and tell others.’ It doesn’t have to be difficult.” The crosses are Merrell’s way of sharing the word of God, a concept that came to him in a vision. “I would get these visions of what needed to be done: ‘Tell ‘em. Go send a cross and send this simple message.’ The visions were so clear I knew exactly what we needed to
do,” he said. “Once I took that first step and committed to doing it, then God filled in the blanks and it became easier.” Merrell grew up in Kokomo, Indiana, in a church-going, Christian family: an upbringing typical for rural North Central Indiana in the 1970s. But Merrell assumed it was also typical for everyone else in America. It wasn’t until later as an adult traveling

“We just want people to go to heaven,” said Merrell. “That’s really where our heart is.”
the country with his own environmental management company that he realized not everyone shared his faith. Or, in some cases, any faith. “Only about 25% of people go to church on a regular basis,” said Merrell. “What tugged at my heart was that there are a lot of good people out there that simply just didn’t know how to get to heaven. Everybody knows about church, but they don’t know about Romans 10:9. ‘If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,’ - and I love this last part - ‘you will be saved.’ It’s that simple,” said Merrell. Since March 2018, Cross America has been packaging and distributing its crosses from their facility at 840 Daniel Drive in Kokomo. “Volunteers come in everyday at their convenience from 7:00 in the morning to 9:00 at night Monday through Saturday,” said Crystal Sanburn, Cross America’s Executive Director. “It’s a very easy process to place the cross inside, fold the card and put the sticker on the back.” Sanburn has been pleasantly surprised by the countless volunteers who give of their time to prepare the crosses for mailing. “We underestimated what this really
means to people to volunteer. Groups come in; youth groups, businesses. It’s really amazing, the people that walk in here and want to be a part of something that’s really bigger than themselves,” she said. The Cross America building – a former 84 Lumber and later a skating rink – quickly grew from being just a location to package the mailers, to a 22,000 square foot community fellowship facility. Sanburn is quick to point out, however, that it is not a church. “It’s non-denominational and multi-denominational” said Sanburn. “There are multiple groups that come in here from all kinds of churches.” Merrell added, “It’s neat to come in here at lunch time when it’s busy. You see differ-
ent races, different churches, businesses all together for the same thing. And that’s what’s so inviting about this place.” The Cross America facility includes a 410-seat auditorium, 120-seat event center with full catering kitchen, four conference rooms, a play area for children five-years-old and under called The Barnyard, and a full-service coffee shop. Sanburn said feedback from those who have received crosses throughout the country has been mostly positive. “The stories that we receive back from people who email us say, ‘This came at the right moment. This was something that I needed. I needed some assurance in my life. I needed just to know that God loved me.’ But, she conceded, “Not
everybody’s gonna be happy about it.” Indeed, with a significant percentage of the U.S. population following other faiths or no faith at all, it’s not unusual for a Cross America package to find its way to a non-believer’s mailbox. How does Merrell answer the negative, sometimes hostile, reactions? “First by praying and then reply with love,” he said. “What’s interesting about the emails from the atheists, I’ll go back and forth with them and correspond. Most of the time you agree to disagree,” said Merrell. “But when you hear their story, you realize if I had been born in that family, that location, raised that way, that would be me.” And yet, Terry Merrell is not deterred from his goal of sending a cross to every American home. Ultimately, he hopes to create an endowment fund that will continue his vision long after he’s gone. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, donations to Cross America are tax deductible, and all donations are used solely for the purchase and distribution of the crosses. Overhead for the Cross America facility is provided through private donors. You’re invited to tour Cross America at 840 Daniel Dr. in Kokomo or visit their website for more information at www.crossamerica.net.

A Global Exchange of Knowledge, Compassion and Medicine Writer // Janelle Morrison Photography // Courtesy of IU Center for Global Health
If the goal of global health, generally speaking, is to exchange studies and research and to increase collaborative efforts while improving health for all people worldwide, I would say that the Indiana University Center for Global Health and its partners at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and Moi University School of Medicine in Eldoret, Kenya, are making significant contributions to that effort. 22

his summer, Carmel resident Sean Buehler and Zionsville resident Grace Rushton were two of four selected Slemenda Scholars to travel to Eldoret, Kenya, this summer with the Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH) program. The AMPATH program is a partnership between Kenyan and North American universities and academic medical centers working with the Kenyan government to deliver health care to a population of more than 4.5 million people, train the next generation of health care providers and conduct research to improve lives around the world. IU School of Medicine’s leadership and involvement with AMPATH and other global health activities is one of the primary reasons all four students selected IU for their medical school training. Heading up the IU Center for Global Health is Zionsville resident Director Robert Einterz, M.D. Dr. Einterz is also the Donald E. Brown Professor of Global Health and associate dean for global health at Indiana University School of Medicine and director of the Indiana University Center for Global Health. Einterz co-founded the Indiana University-Moi University, Kenya partnership in1989. In 2000, Dr. Einterz co-founded the AMPATH program, which delivers health care services to a population of more than 4 million people in western Kenya.
What Is the Slemenda Scholars Program? The Slemenda Scholars program is one of the first opportunities that IU School of Medicine students have to participate in global health activities. Both medical residents and fourth-year medical students may travel to AMPATH programs in Kenya for two-month elective rotations throughout the year. Reciprocally, Kenyan medical students also have opportunities to travel to North American institutions, such as IU School of Medicine-Bloomington. More than 1,800 North American medical trainees have visited the AMPATH partnership in Kenya, and more than 400 Kenyan trainees have visited their colleagues in North America.
The scholarship—named after the late IU School of Medicine epidemiologist Charles Slemenda, DrPH—covers students’ travel, room and board while in Kenya. IU initiated the alliance with Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and Moi University School of Medicine in Eldoret, Kenya, in 1988 and leads the AMPATH consortium of North American universities. For the last three decades, IU has had full-time faculty in Kenya. Representing IU School of Medicine at the AMPATH program were Buehler, Rushton and fellow Slemenda Scholars Michael Harding and Bilal Jawed. Each scholar shared some of their experiences while abroad and the perspectives that they will keep in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
Bilal [Jawed] had made a bunch of paper airplanes with a group of kids in the Child Life Center, and they were throwing them down at the kids below. I’ll never forget the image of that joyful boy, who was technically supposed to stay in his [hospital] bed, really trying and believing he could throw that little purple paper airplane all the way up at us on the third floor. He kept chucking it and was going to keep trying to throw that thing until it fell apart.”

Grace Rushton—Zionsville, IN
Sean Buehler—Carmel, IN Buehler’s mother is a nurse, but he didn’t realize his calling to medicine until his sophomore year of undergraduate school. “I knew that I wanted to help people one way or another,” Buehler said. “I went to Brebeuf Jesuit, and that education ruined me in the best way possible—I can’t imagine doing a job that’s not directly involved in service. If I had to choose one memory from this trip, there’s one image that is burned in my mind. It was one of our first weeks in the pediatric hospital, and there was an incredibly joyful boy.
This was Rushton’s second visit to Eldoret, Kenya. She first visited the AMPATH partnership in 2012 as a teen volunteer. Rushton attributes watching her parents’ work in the medical field to her early interest in medicine and science. She explained that her previous experience in Eldoret helped her prepare for the trip this summer. “I had the mindset that I know what I’m getting into, at least for the most part, in terms of logistics and the living situation,” Rushton said. “That absolutely helped me to have a smoother transition. We landed [in Eldoret] on a Thursday afternoon, and that Friday morning we rounded with a couple of different physicians on the medicine wards. The project that I worked on was called ‘Chamas for Change.’ We got to hear from some of the women about their experiences with [Chamas], and for me, getting to work with that team for summer was very impactful to me.”

Michael Harding—Tampa, FL Harding shared how he switched his major from fine art to medicine after spending a summer, prior to his freshmen year at Florida State University, in Honduras, where his mother is from. During that trip, Harding shadowed his uncle, a physician who provided medical care to an entire rural community. That experience led to Harding finding his calling in the field of medicine. When asked what thoughts he had about the trip to Eldoret, Harding shared, “As part of my project, I got to write some operating procedures regarding the clinical mentorship program, which is kind of a mini-scale version of something AMPATH does on a larger scale. I will remember how welcoming and collaborative everybody was and how they incorporate more people to achieve a bigger dream.”
Bilal Jawed—Indianapolis, IN Jawed has health experience in resource-limited settings in Peru and Uganda and works with the Montgomery County (IN) Health Department. In Uganda, he served as a research assistant in HIV and cryptococcal meningitis. One of his tasks with the county health department involved trapping, typing and treating mosquito larvae and constructing a heat map of West Nile risk in the area. “I really enjoy working with the whole person, and what I took from this trip [to Eldoret] is that I really enjoyed and am attracted to the idea of creating roles rather than just filling them. I feel that global health is a good way to do that, and apart from all that, global health is a fun way to exchange culture and to be out there [in the field] working with your hands.”

Tony’s Steaks and Seafood of Indianapolis Offers A Tasting To Benefit Carmel Writer // Janelle Morrison • Photography // Staff
ony’s Steaks and Seafood of Indianapolis, Carmel Travel Company and Carmel Monthly are proud to sponsor the second private dinner and wine-pairing event to benefit the Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation (CCPLF). This past June, the first event of this quarterly series was an immediate sellout and astounding success for CCPLF. Owner Tony Ricci and his remarkable staff at Tony’s wowed the attendees, comprised of CCPLF board members and other supporters of CCPLF and the library in general. The proceeds of these specific tasting events are going to CCPL Foundation, which in turn will be used to support the Carmel Clay Public Library’s digest of expansive programs for library members of all ages. “Annually, the Children’s Department at the library has about 1,500 free programs and over 2,200 free programs in total for
the community,” Elizabeth Hamilton, CCPL Foundation director, said. “Yes, people’s tax dollars support the library, keep the lights on, pay the salaries and buy the collection, but there is no way that a library our size could afford that many free programs on tax dollars alone. We would either have to cut back the number of programs or find a way to charge for those programs, and Tony’s, Carmel Travel Company and Carmel Monthly are allowing us not to have to do that by being community partners. Just over 86,000 people attended our free programs last year, and events like these—put on by corporate partners—allow us to continue to offer these programs.” CCPLF Board President Teneen Dobbs attended the first tasting event at Tony’s and offered her thoughts on the experience. “I would like to commend Tony’s Steakhouse excellent staff for a wonder-

ful evening of excellent food and wine pairings,” Dobbs said. “Each course was presented beautifully and described with such expertise. Our table’s conversation was lively, and all loved the wine choice (Caymus) presented with each course. I can’t wait for my next visit to Tony’s Steakhouse.” Also in attendance that evening was CCPLF board member David Temple. “As we had never been to Tony’s Steakhouse but had heard good things about it, we jumped at the chance to attend this special evening in support of the Carmel Clay Public Foundation,” Temple expressed. “We were blown away by the food, its artistic presentation, the pairings of wine, and the friendly and educational staff and chef! While we had never met some of our tablemates before, we thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet each other over an excellent meal and made it a night

to remember. We will definitely be going back to Tony’s Steakhouse and telling our friends to visit Tony’s. A big thank-you to Tony, Mike and the rest of the staff for supporting the foundation and giving us a delightful and memorable evening.”
The man behind the imaginative and mind-blowing menus is Tony’s Corporate Chef de Cuisine Ryan Montgomery. Montgomery left his position as executive chef at Marriott Hotels four years ago to work with Ricci and his team of extraordinary professionals. He attributes the culture of trust and respect at Tony’s to the success of the restaurant and the growth of its employees. “You have to have the [supportive] culture behind you because if you don’t have that [the culture] and the respect for food, the respect for people and the respect for your environment, then you really can’t do it successfully. As Tony says, ‘It’s an oldschool culture with a modern attitude.’” Montgomery’s passion for the culinary arts began with a passion and talent as an artist and painter. His artistic expression is what makes every meal plated and served at Tony’s a true work of art, both for the eyes and the palate. He creates the menus for specialty dinners such as these
based on who he’s cooking for and what wines will be paired with the meal. When asked where he developed his passion for food and creating incomparable meals that are some of the finest examples of culinary art, the artist in Montgomery said, “One can’t teach passion, only inspire it. Food is truly an amazing medium, a brightly colored oil paint with the uncanny ability to turn the pain into the past and the present a dream one dares to never forget.” Be sure to join us at Tony’s Steakhouse and Seafood of Indianapolis for the next tasting event benefitting CCPLF on September 10. This event will sell out, so register soon. To request more information and/or to reserve your seats for the next Tasting at Tony’s of Indianapolis Benefiting the CCPL Foundation on September 10, 2019, please email Elizabeth Hamilton at email@example.com. Tickets are $175 per person and include a themed dinner and selected wine pairings in one of Tony’s private dining rooms.

Carmel Monthly is proud to announce the First Annual On Par for Parks Golf Tournament to be held at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana, on September 16, 2019. The tournament will benefit the Friends of Hamilton County Parks (FHCP), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2006 that is geared toward ensuring that all community members have access to parks that meet their needs and expectations in amazing ways.
HCP board members John Scott Foster and Todd Irwin shared the back story to putting on this remarkable inaugural event and why golf enthusiasts will want to register for this tournament. “We were very fortunate garnering the support of the Crooked Stick Golf Club,” Foster said. “In the past, when there were big tournaments at Crooked Stick, Al Patterson—who is the director of Hamilton County Parks and Recreation— would allow folks to park on the grounds of Coxhall Gardens and be shuttled over to Crooked Stick. So basically, Al went over to the good folks at Crooked Stick with a ‘you-owe-me’ card and asked if they could help out FHCP by allowing us to host a golf outing there at their club. This tournament will be one of six tournaments that Crooked Stick allows each year for fundraising purposed for area not-for-profits. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to host this event at the Crooked Stick Golf Club.” Foster acknowledged there are numerous golf outings throughout the county that are worthy fundraisers, but it’s the prestige of playing at a world-championship course that avid golfers will
We were very fortunate garnering the support of the Crooked Stick Golf Club” a very high-end event that is aimed at attracting people who want to make an impact to our neighborhoods by supporting enhancements, green spaces and parks. Our whole mission in life at FHCP is to be the fundraising arm for enhancements to the parks, so we’re trying to put on a very memorable event so those that are going to participate are going to want to be surrounded with like-minded, environmentally friendly, green-space-oriented individ-
be attracted to, especially if they are not members at Crooked Stick. “We thought it was a nice match between a fundraising opportunity for us and opening the club up to people who might not have had a chance to play there before but would like to,” Foster said. “When we organize an event, we really try to match who we are as an organization with the experience that we are providing. One thing you can say about golfers is that they appreciate being outdoors in beautiful parklike settings. So, if there’s a group of folks who are going to be open to learning more about us as an organization, it’s going to be golfers.” Fellow FHCP board member Todd Irwin shared why this tournament is a unique opportunity to be a sponsor or participant. “This is not your normal golf outing because the setting will be at Crooked stick Golf Club,” Irwin emphasized. “There is likely to be a golf outing somewhere in Hamilton County every day of the week during the summer, so asking for sponsorships can fall on a deaf ear unless you have something unique to offer them. In this case, the unique component of the On Par for Parks Golf Tournament is Crooked Stick. We will be putting on

uals that want to give back to our communities through the park system. The money that we do garner through this event and our other events will be earmarked for projects throughout the entire Hamilton County park system.” The practice range opens at 10:00 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. The fee per four-person golf scramble is $2,500 and includes practice time, lunch, snacks and tasty beverages along the course, a 19th-hole party, and a great silent auction, all at this world-class, members-only golf course developed by Pete Dye.
