Four Generations of

High Fashion and Quality To keep that beautiful fur coat or jacket looking its best, there are certain things you need to know about its care and conditioning. You do not clean a fur coat just because it gets dirty. The number one concern with fur material is that the natural oils in the pelts will dry out. Once this happens the pelts become so brittle or tender that they will tear with incredible ease, rendering the garment useless. If you feel a fur and then rub your fingers you should be able to feel a very slight oiliness. This is normal. Dust, pollutants, and airborne particles are attracted to this and get caught in the hairs of the fur. They then act as a sponge drawing the natural oils out of the pelts. These particles also have an abrasive effect on the hairs of the fur that can wear on the natural shine over time, causing it to look old and tired. When you clean a fur your primary goal is to remove these materials from the hairs. That is why, it is important to have your fur cleaned by a professional like Elan Furs.

You can CLEAN and STORE your beautiful fur coat in a climate controlled storage on premises for only $75 (from March 2017 – February 2018).

The Tap Room at Carolina Grill Rediscovered Looking for a local spot to enjoy a family-friendly meal, host a meeting or special event, or enjoy a variety of craft beers and specialty cocktails? Then head over to the Carolina Grill and Tap Room in the heart of the Stonegate community and home to a myriad of incredible spirits, wines, and beer. Writer // Janelle Morrison

W

hat many people may not realize is that the downstairs Tap Room hosts adults over 21 and offers 100 different varieties of whiskey, one of the largest in the area. The tavern boasts a massive, hand-crafted bar made in the 1800s that was brought in from Cleveland, Ohio. The downstairs is handicapped accessible with an on-premises elevator. Tap Room guests may order from the menu that includes a daily special created by Chef Martin Gorham and his staff. A favorite is the Thursday special—the buttermilk-soaked, fried boneless chicken breasts with mashed potatoes, home style gravy and sautéed garlic green beans and yeast roll. Another popular signature dish that Gorham has created is the Chili Lime Brisket Crepes dish. It includes his braised, shredded brisket rubbed in a special blend of spices and tossed in a chili lime sauce folded into three crepes and topped with melted cheese, corn relish, and cilantro. “My staff and I take pride in the fact that we share ideas and our creations,” Gorham said. “We also are proud to use local purveyors whenever possible. For instance, we bring in the freshest and best meats and sausages from Saint Adrian Meats and Sausage, which are raised and produced in Boone County. We want our guests to have an enjoyable meal that is priced just right while supporting our local farms and growers.” Patrons will enjoy a variety of ten craft beers on tap featuring a rotation of Indiana breweries. Tap Room

manager David Hiner delights guests with special attention to the presentation of the drink that he serves. “The presentation is as important as the actual drink,” Hiner said. “For me, it is important to get to know my customers’ preferences and personalities and build their cocktails from that.

Jambalaya

Assorted craft cocktails

I stay intune with what is trending on the beer, wine, and spirits lists so that we can offer all of our drinkingage guests some of their favorites.” Hiner’s variations on the trendy “Moscow Mule” are brilliantly mixed and balanced. The Tap Room’s wine list is impressive without the pretentious prices. Look for the “Whiskey of the Week” specials on the Tap Room Facebook page. Carolina Grill manager Matt Taylor emphasized that the upstairs restaurant (where lunch and dinner are served) and Tap Room are places where guests can feel as relaxed as

if they were enjoying an evening in their living room. Just in time for the patio dining season, the debut of additional seating in the General Store/Ice Cream Parlor and introduction of a deluxe salad bar makes the restaurant an ideal location for daily lunches and business meetings. “It is important for our guests to enjoy themselves, whether it’s a family night out or a group of locals enjoying an evening out with friends downstairs,” Taylor said. “We also offer our guests the ability to rent out our Stable Room, which is located downstairs in the TapRoom, for a private party or business meeting for up to 50 people. For larger parties, we offer the ability to incorporate some of the TapRoom dining area to accommodate their guests. We also provide a catering menu offered exclusively to large, private parties for up to 185 guests. It is important that our guests who are looking to book their special celebrations, reunions, and work related events with us, to know that we are here to make the experience remarkable, and we’ll do all of the work so that they can sit back and enjoy their special event.” Tap Room is open Tuesday-Saturday at 4pm.

Team Rehabilitation Indianapolis-Northwest What are your goals? Team Rehab is a therapist-owned network of physical therapy clinics that originated in Michigan and has expanded into Illinois and Indiana. The mission of each clinic is to provide the best outpatient physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy, and speech therapy in the region. Team Rehab is renowned for its clinics celebrating patients’ success stories, advanced training for all of the staff. Its highly qualified team of therapists offer the proper facilities and equipment and address patient concerns immediately. Writer // Janelle Morrison

U

rsula Booth, owner and physical therapy specialist at Team Rehab Indianapolis-Northwest, is an honors graduate from University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, where she was stationed while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Booth has more than 20 years of physical therapy experience. She works with doctors and specialists in several medical groups as part of her commitment to excellent documentation and open communication with physicians and patients.Booth opened her location near the Pyramids and I-465 on Indy’s northwest side in 2016. It was important for her to establish her clinic in the community where she lives. In addition to helping people get back on the track to good health, Booth is also a dedicated volunteer and serves as a Center Advisory Board Member for the Pike YMCA. “As a physical therapist, I want to do more than help people with their back, neck, knee (etc.) pain, I want to help them to discover their ultimate goals in regards to their health and what will motivate them to get back to living their lives pain and symptom free,” Booth emphasized. She pointed to a wall adorned with

Carmel_2017_Feb_TeamRehabAdvertorial.indd 1

statements, boldly painted, such as “What’s your goal?” and “I want to be healthy.” “I show them [the patients] this wall, and we discuss their personal goals and what it’s going to take to get them where they want to be and how to continue improving their health.

I encourage each of our patients and motivate them as their personal coach.” Booth is also certified as an American Council on Exercise (ACE) health coach. As a certified health coach, She assists people who are struggling with obstacles that have kept them from eating

better, moving more, and prioritizing their health. She creates a long-term plan so that they can continue their good habits and exercise routine after they have completed their rehabilitation therapy. The Team Rehab Northwest Indy clinic boasts a welcoming and energizing environment. Booth took great care in incorporating her branding and color scheme and creating a motivating atmosphere as opposed to a sterile one. She created treatment areas that can be sectioned off with curtains during treatments. A private treatment room is available for patients who require total privacy. She created the exercise stations area in a very open concept so that patients could exercise in front of their peers. The idea is that this social aspect of their therapy will allow them to see that they are not alone on their road to recovery. They become inspired and even more motivated when they see another patient physically achieving his or her goals. One of the therapies that Booth offers is functional dry needling; sometimes called trigger-point dry needling. This manual therapy technique uses a thin needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate trigger points in muscular and connective tissue. Recent medical research shows that dry needling can cause rapid reductions in pain and improvements in a range of motion. The researchers studied 17 patients. All patients’ neck pain began within seven days of the start of the study. Half of the patients received trigger point dry needling treatment, and the other half received no treatment. The patients who received the dry needling had better results. Immediately after the treatment, their pain decreased by 33 percent. One week after the treatment, their pain was 66 percent less. Also, those patients treated with dry needling were better able to bend their heads forward, backward, and toward the painful side of their necks. Therapists at Team Rehab are certified in a specialized form of therapy called Astym® (A-stim) treatment sets the standard for soft tissue therapy. It regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym® treatment has helped countless patients by restoring movement, getting rid of pain, and giving

Carmel_2017_Feb_TeamRehabAdvertorial.indd 2

patients’ lives back. Booth said many people suffering from pain do not know that they do not have to wait for a referral. The Indiana Direct Access Law passed in in 2013 permits patients to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist for 24 calendar days without a referral from a physician or other provider. After 24 days, the PT must obtain a referral from another, authorized

provider to continue treatment. Booth cordially invites prospective patients to call for a complimentary 15-minute consultation to see if Team Rehab and physical therapy is the best option for their recovery and a healthier life. Other Team Rehab locations in Indiana are in Broad Ripple, Delphi, Avon, Fishers, Indianapolis-South, Indianapolis-Northeast and coming soon-Indianapolis-West.

Seasoned restaurateur brings a fresh dining experience to Boone County. Writer // Rebecca Wood • Photography // JJ Kaplan

Henri Najem wouldn’t call his new Whitestown restaurant Flamme Burger a “burger joint.” This seasoned restaurateur argues that such a label glosses over the depth of menu offerings and quality of his food. What Najem wants to create is a dining experience where patrons can enjoy fresh fares in a casual, welcoming atmosphere.

T

he Whitestown restaurant, which opened in December, is Flamme Burger’s second location. Flamme Burger is a “fresh casual” eatery that uses fresh ingredients, homemade recipes, and a wood-burning grill to create a full host of menu items. Najem

worked tirelessly for two years to perfect his recipes and dishes. Flamme burgers are a unique blend of brisket, short ribs, and sirloins. Burgers and other menu items are cooked on a special open flame, wood-burning grill that Najem created. All sandwiches are paired with Harlan Bakeries’ brioches.

ZIONSVILLE MONTHLY

Najem personally created over 20 homemade sauces to complement menu items. Craft beers and wines are also available. Flamme burgers are guest favorites, but the non-burger options have a following, too. Flamme’s Thai chicken salad is a popular choice while chicken and seafood options appeal to others.

FEBRUARY 2017

2017-01-24 3:36 PM


For the last 25 years, Najem has worked in the restaurant industry. Najem and his wife, Shelley, owned the iconic Geist restaurant Bella Vita for 17 years. In 2015, the couple opened the first Flamme Burger in Fishers. Restaurant ownership runs in Najem’s blood. His parents owned bars and restaurants in downtown Indianapolis. His first restaurant experience began at age12 while working in his uncle’s west side Indianapolis restaurant. Najem’s frequent trips to Zionsville soccer fields with his daughter’s team alerted him to the growth in Boone County. “I noticed the growth and devel-

opment in the area,” says Najem. “I saw a lot of opportunity here.” Tanya Sumner, Whitestown’s director of public relations, was instrumental in Najem’s feeling welcomed into the Boone County community. “We were excited about a locally owned place coming into Whitestown,” Sumner asserts. “His product was different and exciting.” Najem feels a strong commitment to giving back to the community and contributing to local charities. Before Flamme Burger opened in Whitestown, Sumner says Najem contacted her about partnering with a local charity. Sumner connected Najem to the Caring Center

The Caring Center meets the needs of many single mothers and their children within Boone County. This was important for Najem whose own single mother raised him and his five siblings after his father died in a car accident when he was eight years old. Flamme Burger donated a $1,000 check to the Caring Center at its ribbon cutting ceremony. Once a month, Najem will donate 10 percent of the restaurant’s profits to the Caring Center. Theresa Hanners, executive director of the Caring Center, is thrilled with the partnership. “The fact that Henri is very passionate about meeting the needs of single moms and children means a lot,” Hanners says. “Donations to the Caring Center can be feast or famine. We are grateful to have something consistent.” Hanners said the restaurant’s donations will be used to purchase food during those “famine” times. The new Whitestown Flamme Burger is open at 6850 Whitestown Parkway.

Writer // Janelle Morrison

The modern digital age of celebrating Valentine’s Day leaves behind the traditional handmade cards as was the English practice since the 19th century. In the latter half of the 20th century, heartshaped boxes of chocolates and roses became a safe standard of showing one’s affection for another person. The diamond industry capitalized on the trend of heartshaped jewelry that was popular in the 1980s. At the turn of the millennium, the internet has made digital e-cards and gift cards popular replacements of the more traditional gifts of yesteryears. How do you celebrate your Valentine’s Day?

We asked a few familiar members of our communities to reveal some of their most treasured or comical memories of Valentine’s Days past. Here are their responses to our fun-spirited survey!

Amanda Dorman, Director of Communications & Community Relations Town of Zionsville:

Q Most memorable Valentine’s Day, to date?: A I haven’t celebrated too many Valentine’s Day

Zionsville Mayor Tim Haak:

holidays in the traditional sense because I had been a ‘single lady’ (to quote Beyonce). This year, I will be celebrating my first Valentine’s Day being engaged!

Q If celebrating at home, who’s in the kitchen and what’s on the menu?

A

Our two boys have taken an interest in cooking lately so it will be them along with me cooking dinner for mom. Their cooking skills are still developing so it will likely be tacos or spaghetti but don’t think mom will mind too much.

Tom Santelli, Boone County Council:

Q Favorite Valentine’s meal, prepared by you? A Classically, I do a surf and turf with asparagus in a bananas foster style brown sugar reduction. For soup I like Crawfish Etoufee while you are having champagne. Caesar salad topped with a smoked salmon and homemade dressing, shaved parmesan and homemade garlic croutons is a nice compliment. I think Valentines deserts should be mixed up year over year from Chocolate Bombs, to Red Velvet Cheese Cake from the Cheese Cake Factory, Godiva Chocolates, Bananas Foster or Bananas Flambé and Ganache Chocolatier in Zionsville, of course, champagne from the Wine Guy and something from Hopwood is good.

Johnathan Nalli, CEO of St. Vincent-Indiana: Dennis Murphy, President and CEO of IU Health:

Q Funniest Valentine Day memory? A My wife and I went out to eat at a very small new restaurant. The restaurant didn’t have a liquor license so you had a bring your own bottle of wine. As we were seated and preparing for a nice romantic evening, we realized we were next to a table that was reserved for a large group. About 10 minutes later, a group of 10 couples, decked out in their full biker leathers and looking very much the part of stereotypical bikers, sat at the table next to us. We weren’t quite sure we picked the right restaurant. We soon realized that they were there for the same reason as us and by the end of the meal we were sharing wine, stories, and laughs. We had a great time and once again learned never to judge a book by its cover. ZIONSVILLE MONTHLY

Q What’s special for you on Valentine’s Day? A At our house, Valentine’s Day is more about the simple reminder of our Love, it started with just Cathleen and I but now includes our four little kids. Our kids have added to the simplicity of the day with their artwork that is now the basis of how we celebrate the day.

Bryan Traylor, Zionsville Town Council:

Q Worst gift you’ve given? A A towel warmer. My wife, Lindsay, had told me about how her mom would warm her towel up in the dryer for her when she was a kid and so I thought my gift was sentimental and sweet. It was greeted with, ‘This is the weirdest gift I’ve ever received!’ Not the response I was hoping for.

The Zionsville Chamber’s Next Chapter Writer // Janelle Morrison • Photography // JJ Kaplan

The Zionsville Chamber of Commerce announced last November that Tracy Phillips, a leader of nonprofit and volunteer organizations for more than 25 years, would become executive director at the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce in early 2017. Phillips is leaving her position as the executive director of the Zionsville Education Foundation (ZEF) and looks forward to the opportunity to serve her community on an even larger scale.

O

ptimistic about her new role and the direction in which the chamber is moving, Phillips hopes to “fill the incredibly large shoes” left by her predecessor, Julie Johns-Cole. Phillips is looking forward to using her existing relationships that she built over the years with ZEF while establishing new ones with the business community and the town’s economic development leaders. As the executive director of ZEF, Phillips achieved concrete goals such as increasing revenue by 11 percent in three years, reinventing the spring fundraiser for the changing demographics, and adding strategic social media platforms. Before her departure, she was instrumental in the planning and execution of ZEF’s 20th Anniversary celebration. During that anniversary year, foundation giving reached $1 million.

“I grew up just a few miles from downtown Zionsville and spent a lot of time going to the shops and restaurants here,” Phillips said. “I am looking forward to working with the chamber’s board of directors, its committees, and all of our Zionsville businesses. While I see economic development as a top priority, business retention is equally as important. I plan on doing a lot of listening over the next several months and observing what areas need attention and what is working effectively for the community as a whole.” Phillips emphasized that she is available to discuss the issues and ideas with local business owners, whether they are large companies or small business owners. She is also relying on the residents’ feedback with regards to the community events that are produced by the chamber. Phillips’s prior experience as the public relations and special events manager with

the Paseo del Rio Association, a chamber of commerce in San Antonio, Texas, gives her the ability to understand the impact that events have in bringing visitors and prospective customers to area businesses. She also understands the importance of working with the affected businesses so that the event benefits all concerned. “It is important for me to work to balance the town’s economic growth while preserving the foundation that it was built on and the unique character that Zionsville is known for,” Phillips expressed. “I am fully committed to doing

what is best for my community and am excited for this opportunity to serve my community in this new chapter of my professional life. For me, a large part of my career is focused on servant leadership and on giving back.” Phillips acknowledged the growing population and the fact that more young professionals and young families are moving to Zionsville. She is excited for the opportunity to engage the YPs and expand the chamber’s virtual footprint through its growing social media presence. “In today’s world, Gen X and Y, Millennials and Gen Z get their information and share their thoughts with bidirectional social media,” Phillips observed. “It is a whole new playing field and in utilizing my experience and continuing education in this specialty, I expect to expand the chamber’s profile.” Tom Casalini, Zionsville Chamber of Commerce board member and president of Casalini Photography, expressed optimism about Phillips’s new position and Zionsville in this new year. “I believe that Tracy will do a wonderful job as the executive director,” Casalini said. “She possesses a level of professionalism and energy that is necessary for that role. In my 44 years of experience, what is transpiring now in downtown Zionsville is the closest that the town has been to the energy of the 1970s through the early 80s. The chamber is actively engaging with businesses that are interested in locating here and is advocating for the businesses, such as the ones affiliated with zWorks, who are growing here. These businesses have chosen to stay and expand here in Zionsville.”

Bryan Traylor, a Zionsville resident and past-president of the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce, offered a brief review of the Chamber’s progress over the years since he joined and what he feels Phillips will bring to the table. During Traylor’s first term as president, the chamber went from having no employees (the part-timers had resigned) to the hiring of a full-time executive director, Julie Johns-Cole. “I think that Tracy is a phenomenal hire,” Traylor stated. “Tracy being a resident and her experience with ZEF makes her a perfect fit. If you follow her on Facebook, you can see how much she loves Zionsville and how much the businesses and schools mean to her. She is not going to do anything that would put the chamber or the community in any bad light or in jeopardy in any way. She has the heart for this job.” Traylor concluded, “Admittedly, I was extremely nervous when Julie chose to move on. I knew that at some point she would move on to something else and that we were lucky to have Julie with us for as long as we did. Naturally, I was really concerned about who would replace her. Those are extremely big shoes to fill. When the board announced Tracy as the new director, I let out a big sigh of relief. She doesn’t have to go around and meet everybody because she pretty much already knows everybody.” For more information on the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce, membership benefits and upcoming events, visit www.zionsvillechamber.org.

l-r Blake Head, vice president of product development and director of operations for iSALUS, and Michael Hall, iSALUS co-founder. Writer // Janelle Morrison

What if next time you visited the doctor’s office, your doctor discussed your symptoms while looking directly at you rather then with his/her back turned to you while inputting nearly the entire visit into a computer? Would you feel better served? What if health care providers could reach their patients from anywhere in the world? How many lives could be improved or saved? Many health care professionals are becoming increasingly frustrated by Electronic Health Records software that keeps them from spending more time communicating and caring for their patients.

D

r. Chuck Dietzen, co-Founder of iSALUS and chief medical officer and president of Timmy Global Health, and his co-founder, Michael Hall, find this unacceptable. They founded iSALUS Healthcare, which focuses on meeting the individual needs of each healthcare professional they serve. Dietzen and Hall, along with their team of talented programmers, have

developed thousands of templates in nearly every specialization. They have the technology to further customize their templates for any healthcare providers’ specific practice. iSALUS’s mission is to make healthcare providers’ lives easier while developing a mobile application that allows them to take their patient’s charts, view or upload images, finish charting, write prescriptions, and create superbills from anywhere in

the world with an internet connection or cellular access. Dietzen draws upon more than 25 years of healthcare experience to understand the working relationship between physicians, hospitals, patients and payers. Using this knowledge, he guides the development of OfficeEMR, iSALUS Healthcare’s web-based Electronic Medical Record and Practice Management solution, to ensure it meets industry

demands. “There is a very simple problem that needs to be solved,” Dietzen says. “How do we [health care providers] get to the child and how do we get the child to the care?” Blake Head, the vice president of product development and director of operations for iSALUS, has been with the organization since 2008. Head addressed some of the changes in the health care industry and how iSALUS’s software is designed to solve some of the current challenges. One of the pieces of the solution is telemedicine. Telemedicine in its most basic definition is “the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients by means of telecommunications technology.” “Our telemedicine software is going to allow providers and patients to contact and visit one another without being in the same physical location,” Head explained. “It looks and works a lot like FaceTime but it’s completely secured and built directly into our software. We worked our way through on the existing devices on the market and identified the pros and cons with all the various technologies. “If you look at Apple and Facetime, it works because it’s easy. We want our software to be user-friendly, and easy for both the provider and the patient without extensive training for either end-user. In the United States, approximately 90 percent of the adult popula-

tion has smart phones and replace them every couple of years so they’re keeping the technology base up-to-date, which eliminates the worry about having to replace obsolete technology or antiquated equipment,” he says. “With our software, we are communicating point-to-point, and we have developed our technology so that it cannot be intercepted. Being cloud-based and a small company, we can build and create a lot of cool technology. We had to make a highly configurable piece of software with encryption codes that met all the required regulations. We’re also not storing the data anywhere. So it’s not being recorded or saved anywhere, making the shared information highly secure.” Dietzen emphasized that colleagues enjoy interacting with one another, particularly in the health care industry, and especially with colleagues from all over the world. Nelson Chow, CEO of LIH Healthcare and an associate of Dietzen’s, recently travelled from China to Indianapolis to consult with Dietzen and his colleagues on matters such as the practice and development of telemedicine. Chow also took a tour of iSALUS and offered his thoughts on the importance to the world of this developing technology. “The great thing about what Nelson and LIH are doing [is] they are instituting a whole new type of medicine to China,”

Dietzen stated. “To be pioneers in this is exciting, and so he came here so that I could introduce him to some additional resources here in the U.S. and specifically here in Indianapolis.” He adds, “It’s about relationships and finding people that you want to work with and feel that have the right niche for what we, providers and developers, are doing.” Chow, a former electrical engineer who specialized in semiconductors and computer chips, developed LIH as a direct response to an arduous journey of trying to find proper care and therapy for his 9-year-old daughter, Olivia, who was born in China with Down Syndrome. Immediately following her birth in 2007, Chow realized that even just five minutes after her birth, the despair and hopelessness displayed by the nurses represented the culture in China that Chow realized had to change. Children with disabilities in China are cast away and hidden from society. They do not typically receive therapy or treatments that would otherwise improve the quality of their lives. Chow and his family came back to the U.S. where his previous company was headquartered and began to educate themselves on their daughter’s needs and what therapies were available to her. Fast forward to the present day. Chow’s company, LIH, has expanded into an influential organization that works

Now, we are operating clinics throughout the coastal cities of China and just opened a 107-bed rehabilitation hospital in the interior of China,” Chow says to change China’s public policy, advocates for accreditation in Chinese universities, and works to provide qualified advanced therapists throughout health care facilities and hospitals in China. “Now, we are operating clinics throughout the coastal cities of China and just opened a 107-bed rehabilitation hospital in the interior of China,” Chow says. “Technologies like iSALUS, are of interest to me because of my background in engineering and start-ups. I speak their language. I believe iSALUS to be a dedicated group that is small and nimble enough to allow for ideas at any level to grow. Innovation comes from small groups such as these.”

He explains, “They are the right size for what they are doing now. The question is, is the technology robust enough for the need that exists for global telemedicine? For what iSALUS has developed and is offering, I see their size and dedication as being a big advantage. The mission parallels LIH’s mission in that we are looking for providing care and resources, not just for all of China but also universally. We simply cannot reach every corner of the world, and we need to be able to rely on technologies like Telemedicine to accomplish our missions.” For more information on iSALUS and its available software products, visit www.isalushealthcare.com.

The Cobblestone Grill is getting a complete “make-over” for the new year and its next chapter since Kent and Liz Esra opened it in 2000.

enovations began in late January after extensive planning and design work. The restaurant will be closed throughout this remodeling and reopen under its new name and logo, Cobblestone, in early March. “After 16 years, we decided it was time to refresh the restaurant with a new look,” says Kent Esra. “We will reconfigure the dining and bar areas, add new colors and lighting and a more contemporary ambience that will update the restaurant throughout.” They will open the dining areas in the entire restaurant by eliminating some walls. The floors, furniture, décor, and lighting will be updated to reflect the new ambience that the Esras want to share with patrons and future guests.

“We felt changing the name to simply ‘Cobblestone’ better reflects who we are today,” says Liz Esra. “This is an exciting time for us, and we can’t wait to introduce the new Cobblestone to our many customers who have supported us for the past 16 years.” The bar area will be expanded and the dining area changed to allow better seating with new tables and chairs. The Esras emphasize that the bar area will provide additional space for customers to meet and enjoy the 28 beers on tap, an exquisite wine list, and more than 70 bourbon whiskeys. Cobblestone will also introduce new menu items but keep many of the more popular offerings. The appetizer menu will be expanded and Chef Omar Guzman is creating new and delicious dishes

to unveil at the restaurant’s reopening when the Esras plan to host “a really big party.” Lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch will continue to be served after the construction is completed. The Esras emphasize that the design efforts were a collaboration of ideas and talent from their fellow business owners and close friends, Tom Casalini and Lesley Hunt. The team created the new look and atmosphere for the interior updates throughout the restaurant and bar areas. “We could not have done any of this without their help,” Kent Esra says. “We would not have even known where to begin, and we cannot simply say ‘thank you’ enough for what these two have done for us.”

The restaurant has long been a place where Zionsville residents and visitors can gather and enjoy a fine dining experience or celebrate special occasions. The garden room, a private room off the main dining area, will feature a window allowing patrons to feel a part of the main dining area and allow privacy features when the guests prefer to be secluded. Those who prefer to dine al fresco, weather permitting, will still be able to enjoy the serenity of the Cobblestone patio. Dog Nights on Mondays will return to the patio as well. Live music will continue to delight weekend guests. The Cobblestone welcomes patrons of all ages and offers a family-friendly environment as well as catering to its younger adult demographic. The menu, bar selections, and the over-all ambience is welcoming to everyone who comes through the doors. Guests can anticipate leaving and feeling well-served and appreciated by Cobblestone’s attentive staff.

For those who want their Cobblestone “fix” during its remodeling period, the Esras have teamed up with local business owner, Victor (Vic) Gosnell, owner of Bites by Confectioneiress, to host “pop-up” dining opportunities on February 3rd and 4th. Tickets are $65 per person and includes a five-course meal from the Cobblestone and Bites menus paired with cocktails by two proprietors. For a complete course description and to purchase tickets, visit www.eventbrite. com and enter “Cobblestone” in the search for events. “Kent and Liz have and will continue to support our business and this was our opportunity to pay it back,” Gosnell says. “We teamed up with them and thought of a creative way to offer a ‘bite’ of Cobblestone while they are under construction. Teaming up is a common theme throughout the Zionsville business community.” Kent Esra concludes, “We want to assure our customers and the Zionsville

community that Cobblestone will be closed for a very short time to make the physical changes that we believe will greatly enhance and update the dining experience we’ve delivered since 2000.” For updates on the remodeling progress and re-opening reveal party, visit www.cobblestonegrill.com.

Writer // Janelle Morrison • Photography // JJ Kaplan

In September of 2007, The Humane Society for Boone County (HSforBC) was organized by Boone County citizens to continue the task of animal rescue for homeless domestic animals. The HSforBC’s primary mission is the rescue of homeless and endangered domestic animals and advocating for public education of humane animal care and animal regulations.

U

ntil recently, the HSforBC did not have a physical shelter. Through the perseverance of its board members and community partners, that goal was achieved shortly after the first of the year. The board consulted with its partners at the Community Foundation of Boone County, which has held and managed a special fund designated for an animal shelter for several years. HSforBC was not able to obtain those funds until it had met all of the required criteria. The application for those was funds was recently completed, and the HSforBC was granted the full fund balance of $288,000. Shortly thereafter, the HSforBC announced that it now had

a physical shelter to serve the animals of Boone County. The shelter will be open after a period of remodeling is completed. Stay tuned for an announcement on the shelter’s grand opening. The official Humane Society of Boone County Animal Shelter will be located in Whitestown. It formerly housed the Zionsville Country Vet Clinic. It boasts 7,000 square feet with room to expand dog kennels and other rooms for catteries. The property previously donated to the HSforBC will be considered for multiple uses such as a potential future quarantine facility and the remaining land could be considered for a dog park. Decisions on the future uses will be revisited and decided at a later time. The

immediate focus is to get established in the new facility as soon as possible. Michael Hancock, the HSforBC board president, discussed the benefits that having a physical location will afford the board and volunteer staff. “With our new location, we will be able to have more volunteers assist us with administering things that will need to done at the shelter,” Hancock says. “I originally became involved as a volunteer in 2008 and was invited to the board in 2009. I helped with the organizing of the social media and IT development. Ever since we made the announcement that we are getting a physical shelter, we have had an outpouring of people who have not volunteered before asking about how they can get involved.” Susan Austin, director of animal welfare, says that it was an arduous road to get where they are today. “It has been a hard eight years…. It has been a real labor of love, and there were times that we couldn’t help some of the animals, which broke our hearts, but we kept on

with the end goal always on our minds: to get the shelter.” She says the board members are very grateful to Boone County veterinarians who have provided vaccinations, spay and neutering services at no charge. There have also been many donors and volunteers. “Our list of people and organizations to thank is endless,” she says. “We would like to mention the Zionsville Country Kennel, the sponsor of this year’s Fur Ball, our annual fundraiser. They have been instrumental in assisting us with kenneling the dogs for free until we could find foster homes.” She says that they have seen an increasing number ofabandoned, neglected, and abused pets due to economic hardships, but they have tried to assist families with dog or cat food from their pet pantry. “The goal is to keep the animals in their original homes, if possible, rather than changing homes and environments,” she says.

Site for HSforBC long awaited animal shelter

Guy Davis, one of HSforBC’s founding board members and current director of membership, spoke about what the news of the facility means to the original members who have waited a long time for this day. “In 2007, I attended a meeting and discovered that there was no rescue facility for animals in our county,” Davis says. “The group decided to hold a second meeting where members of the community were selected to become volunteers who eventually became board members.

We filed for our 501(c) (3) and immediately attempted to do rescues. With the help of neighboring communities, we got valuable insights on how to rescue and grow our organization. Over the years, we have grown our volunteer base into what we are today. It has been an incredible and heartwarming process. The individuals who have been willing to step up and take care of homeless animals and ones that are in a tough situation have made the journey very rewarding.”

From games and mischief to Thing One and Thing Two, The Cat brings all sorts of trouble to this grey day— but will Sally and her brother be able to explain the mess to Mother? This Dr. Seuss classic leaps onto the stage with chaotic exuberance in this adaptation from the National Theatre in London. THE TARKINGTON FEBRUARY 22 - MARCH 2, 2017
