Dr. Robert Bruce Pauszek Sr. of Indianapolis died March 3 surrounded by his loving family. He was born Sept. 4, 1936 in South Bend to the late Dr. Thomas B. and Edna Pauszek. He graduated in 1954 from South Bend Central High School and attended the University of Michigan, where he played football. He attended Notre Dame in 1957, where he and his high school sweetheart married. The couple went on to Marquette University, where Bob attended dental school, but after a year felt the calling to Pauszek medicine and graduated from IU Medical School in 1963 with honors as a member of the AOA. His pediatric residency was at Methodist Hospital, and he practiced medicine on the east side for 50 years, most recently for Community Hospitals. After receiving his medical degree, he served his nation as a captain in the U.S. Army, serving during Vietnam. Bob was an avid baseball fan.

State legislators give halftime update at legislative breakfast By Adam Aasen • Indiana General Assembly lawmakers representing Hamilton County gave a midpoint update of the 2018 session at a chamber of commerce legislative breakfast Feb. 16 at Conner Prairie. At the time of the breakfast, the Indiana Senate had passed the Sunday sales law, which would allow the sale of alcoholic beverages for carryout on Sunday from noon to 8 p.m. Since then, the Indiana House approved its version and was awaiting a final approval from the Senate and the signature of Gov. Eric Holcomb before final passage. The legislature also has approved or is working on approving bills regarding the opioid epidemic, K-12 funding and workforce development. Other bills weren’t passed. Senate Republicans killed a hate crimes bill, leaving Indiana as one of only five states without such a law. State Sen. John Ruckelshaus expressed disappointment that a bill couldn’t get passed but said a consensus wasn’t reached. Indiana Speaker of the House Brian Bosma assured the audience that the death of the bill wouldn’t have an effect on Amazon choosing Indiana for its second headquarters, but he was interrupted by an angry member of the audience. Another bill that would have merged approximately 300 of Indiana’s townships died in the House. There was resistance from smaller townships. The idea would have been to push townships with less than 1,200 residents to merge with a contiguous township in the same county. 

“This would have required smaller townships to have consolidated their neighbors,” State Rep. Jerry Torr said. “It would have eliminated government, and I was disappointed we didn’t have the votes to get it passed.” Lawmakers also addressed issues that dealt with local government control, such as state laws regarding Airbnb and small cell towers. Bosma said legislators are trying to deal with emerging technology prudently. He noted the small cell tower law from last year, which allowed telecommunication companies to install small-cell boxes in a city right-of-way without a permit or fee. This allows greater use of broadband access in rural areas and 5G cellphone data. Bosma said there was a lot of misinformation about the small cell towers. “Last year, people were circulated pictures that looked like Volkswagon minivans on top of poles,” Bosma said. This year, about 80 municipalities made themselves exempt from the law by declaring a section of town an underground utility area. In some cases, almost entire cities were declared as such. Carmel was one of those cities. Bosma said mobile communication companies asked the General Assembly to void those laws, but they decided not to do that. He said a compromise might need to be reached. “I’m not exactly sure what the final compromise is,” he said. “But these boxes are like bread boxes, not bread factory boxes. You want 5G. I want 5G, and this is how we get it.”

Women running the railroad Commentary by David Heighway There has been a lot of local discussion about railroads lately, and, since March is Women’s History Month, highlights I thought I might show in history how the railroads offered 19th-century women some non-traditional roles: telegraph operators and stations agents. Agents had to sell tickets, operate the telegraph, hand off orders to train crews and handle mailbags. Since the latter two usually were done while the train was in motion, this required some skill. Josephine “Josie” McCain was appointed the Hortonville postmaster in 1901 at the age of 20, just after she had graduated from Union High School in Westfield. Bertha McVey (1874-1939) was hired as a telegraph operator at the Noblesville Midland station in 1891 when she was little more than a teenager. Women were highly regarded (but paid less) as telegraph operators in the 1800s. Since railroad stations often were the focus of community activity, some station agents saw some exciting times. Olive “Ollie” McChesney (1859-1929) was a young

widow who was station agent at Fishers in 1880. It’s very possible she was at her job during the Battle of Mudsock, an explosion of violence in November 1881 that left one dead and Women often carried mailbags as part of their many 32 injured. duties. (Image courtesy of Ollie would Hamilton East Public Library) have been the person to send a telegraph message to Noblesville to alert the sheriff, literally while the bullets were flying. The sheriff arrived by handcar, and Ollie would have been the first person he would have seen. David Heighway is the Hamilton County historian at Hamilton East Public Library.

Town to improve Main Street, plans other projects By Anna Skinner • Fortville’s Main Street is getting a facelift. Residents will Cover story see three separate projects, one being improvements to Main Street, begin during the next two years. Planning administrator Adam Zaklikowski said the projects are part of the 2014 Comprehensive Plan. “It really sets the vision for the town and how to manage new growth,” Zaklikowski said. The projects are 80 percent federally funded, with the town paying the remaining 20 percent of each project. Taxes will not be raised to complete construction. The projects include improvements to Michigan Street and Main Street and three phases of trail improvements. Michigan Street pedestrian safety project The Town of Fortville will install new ADA-accessible ramps throughout the Michigan Street corridor and add new lighting. Construction will begin this spring at a cost of $528,900. The project’s completion date is set for this summer. Main Street corridor New sidewalks, curbs and lighting will be added to Fortville’s Main Street along with a pedestrian crosswalk and landscaping. The $2.5 million project will begin in October 2019, depending on weather. The project should be finished in 2020. Zaklikowski said the main purpose of the Michigan Street project is to improve pedestrian safety, but the Main Street improvements address multiple issues. “It’s a much wider scope,” he said. “The goal is to beautify Main Street and to improve that infrastructure where in many cases it is very old and deteriorating.” Zaklikowski said the project also may eliminate a bad intersection near Pearl and

Mill streets. Trail improvements Improvements to the trails will be made in three phases, with the first to begin in March 2020. A 10-foot wide asphalt trail will begin at the intersection of Garden Street and Fortville Pike and continue along Fortville Pike to cross over at County Road 200 West with a pedestrian signal at the intersection. It will then follow County Road 200 West to the Mt. Vernon School District complex. The trail will be approximately 2 miles long and cost nearly $6 million. “The main reason for doing the trail is to have a safe, pedestrian-accessible or bicycle way to get from old town Fortville to the school complex,” Zaklikowski said. “It’s really another recreational amenity and a good opportunity for folks to get exercise safely and another physical connection between our school system and the community.” Town Manager Joe Renner could not be reached for comment.

True grit

Commentary by Terry Anker

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Grit is an old word that has come into new fashion. The 1969 Henry Hathaway film “True Grit,” starring John Wayne and a very young Glen Campbell, recounts the story of a teenage girl wanting to avenge the murder of her father by hiring Wayne’s character, a codgy lawman aptly named Rooster Cogburn, because he was alleged to possess the grit to get the job done. Throughout the film, she comes to realize that the strength of character required resides in all of us – if our will or circumstance can only release it. Wayne’s portrayal illuminated the big screen, ultimately winning his only Oscar after three nominations. Grit, at least as Wayne portrayed it, isn’t pure – it may not even be polite – but it is about doing what is right, what needs to be done and doing it when it is needed. Today, a quick perusal of any bookstore will show scores of tomes dedicated to the subject. Grit, it seems, is making a comeback. Are we tough enough to survive in a difficult world? Can we overcome the inevitable roadblocks along our journey? Can we get back up after something has knocked us down yet again? Today’s authors cite study after study of folks doing extraordinary things against seemingly overwhelming circumstances. A friend was recently sharing that her young son had decided, against her advice, to adopt a dog. The boy had not shown much aptitude for responsibility. But, this loving beast inspired him. Early each morning, they walk. Daily is a ritual of care. His commitment is constant and unbounded. Among all priorities, this is the singular one to which he is dedicated. There is something about doing this thing that drives him. Do we have the same in ourselves?

How’s 2018 shaping up for you? Here’s a rundown of mine: • My teenage daughters are giving me a run for my money. One has decided that Snapchat and the Karhumor dashians are way more important than silly things like U.S. history grades and a non-toxic bedroom environment. The other speaks to me only when she is feverish with the flu, needs a ride to Starbucks or has a Geometry question. • On a brighter note, I’ve only received one hate mail thus far. Apparently, I’ve ticked off some moms by insinuating that staying at home is a terribly hard job that requires alcohol to cope. I wasn’t insinuating anything. Motherhood is the hardest thing you can do, and most days with little ones are challenging. Who cares if you need some wine after a botched visit to the Children’s Museum? It doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate your circumstances. It just means you had a rough day and would like a drink. Cheers! • I’m starting to feel my age, at least physically. The knees are constantly cracking, sometimes refusing to work altogether. My hair stylist had to cut out my “grays” at my last visit, which disturbed me to no end. And my hormones are off the charts, causing periodic bouts of insomnia, night sweats and extreme witchiness. This year looks like it might be a tough one. But I have my middle-age health, two male children that love me and this column. Peace out.

Large voter turnout can improve representation Editor, When Indiana’s 5th District Congressman Dan Burton retired in 2012 after serving 15 terms, Susan Brooks, a then center-right candidate, won the race to succeed him. I was one of the people who voted for her. But, with the Republican Party’s recent shift further to the right, Susan Brooks has shifted right along with it. Are the majority of 5th District voters as far right-wing as Ms. Brooks is now? For the first time in decades, a full slate of Democrats is stepping up to give us a real choice. The 5th District’s suburban populations are growing rapidly and centrist voters, many with advanced degrees, are changing the political landscape. These voters embrace information, scientific fact and best practices. Their professional jobs require it. Naturally, they hope for the same in their government representatives. Yet, Susan Brooks’ website says she is opposed to any ban on assault weapons and is silent on the need for common sense solutions to mass shoot-

ings. She also touts her endorsement by the Indiana Right to Life organization, which has long argued against women having access to contraceptives for family planning using unproven data to blur the line between abortion and contraceptives. Both of these extreme positions are at odds with the majority of educated voters who do not wish to have dangerous and poorly informed policies forced on them and their families. Don’t look for policy initiatives on climate change on Ms. Brooks’ website, either – she has shown no desire to anger those who make their wealth from the fossil fuel industry. Moderate voters on both the right and left need to make their preferences known to get the representation that reflects their views on these and other complex issues. Voter turnout in primary elections is historically low and threatens the quality of our representation and leadership. Barbara Maurath Fishers

Catching this late, late show Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Dr. Michael Kaveney

Welcome, Michael Kaveney, MD Riverview Health Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is pleased to welcome Dr. Michael Kaveney.

The Academy Awards were coming up, and on Friday my wife wanted to see “Lady Bird,” one of the Best Picture humor nominees, but it was only showing at 11:15 p.m., way past my bedtime. Not only that, but if we were to go out for a movie at that hour, we needed something to occupy ourselves between 6 and 10:30 p.m. We ended up watching a movie on Netflix, which is kind of like grabbing a bite to eat at home before heading out for dinner. I asked our friends Bob and Cathy if they wanted to come along.  “Bob, Mary Ellen and I are going to an 11 o’clock movie. Want to join us?” “Cathy usually doesn’t get up until noon.” “No, I mean 11 tonight.” “Wait, you guys are going to a movie at 11 p.m.? That means the film won’t let out until tomorrow. Are you writing an article for AARP on the lives of super-seniors?” Bob declined the invitation, so it was just Mary Ellen and me. My concern about the evening proved correct. Mary Ellen kept poking me in my side. “Dick, you’re dozing off.”

“I told you this would happen if we went to a late movie.” “I know, but we’re still in the car on the way to the theater.” This particular cinema had state-of-theart seating: Recliners with comfortable armrests and a place for snacks and drinks.  “Do not fall asleep this time,” cautioned my wife. “I want to talk about the movie on the way home.” As we headed back later that night, Mary Ellen asked me what I thought of the flick. I told her that I really related to the part where the guy went to class and forgot to study for the exam and that he forgot to wear pants to school. “That wasn’t in the movie, Dick. That’s one of your recurring nightmares.” Yes, I had nodded off, but I was thrilled my dreams were Oscar material. On Sunday night, we watched the Academy Awards. I have no idea which film got best picture. I fell asleep by 10:30.

HSE grad brings Purduettes home By Anna Skinner Each of the 60 singers for the Purduettes, Purdue University’s female ensemble choir, has the opPERFORMANCE portunity to sing in their hometown for a show. Ashley Straut, a 2014 Hamilton Southeastern High School graduate, chose to perform her home show her senior year. Straut said the Purduettes are similar to show choir. The group performs all genres, usually donning sparkling outfits. “We often perform at various events like religious services, alumni association events and retirement facilities,” she said. “We have a tradition in the Purduettes where we allow each woman to have the opportunity to have a home show if they so choose. It’s a way to say goodbye and to show the (other) women where you’re from.” The Fishers Purduettes event will be at 7 p.m. April 14 at Cornerstone Lutheran Church, 13450 E. 116th St. There are six members from the Fishers area. “I wanted to bring the Purduettes to Fishers because there are so many ladies

in the group from the Indy area, and I thought it would be a great way for a lot of family that have never seen the Purduettes before,” Straut said. Other Fishers members are Casie Blair, Caroline Gruver, Zane Wright, Kylee Switzer and Caroline Shanley. A dinner provided by Famous Dave’s will be available for $10 before the show. Dinner tickets must be purchased in advance. Tickets for the show range from $10 to $15. To purchase tickets, visit responses/new.

FHS students win contest By Renee Larr Two Fishers High School juniors employed their shared love of writing to create an award-winning screenplay. FILM Whitney Roberts and Cinder Foulke learned about a writing competition called Project Pigasus from Roberts’ mother. Bloomington-based Pigasus Pictures hosts the contest for budding film writers. “My mom had been watching the news and there was a segment about Project Pigasus and last year’s winner,” Roberts said. “She told me she thought I should check it out because I’ve always been very interested in film.” Roberts asked her friend to help her with the project. The two began writing their screenplay, “As We Begin,” in early December 2017. The story focuses on 17-year-old Jordan Smith and her best friend, 18-yearold Dakota Hawkins, through the navigation of family related issues, preparation for college and angst about the future. “We definitely drew from our own experiences,” Foulke said. “Obviously, we haven’t quite gotten to the exact point they were

at in their lives, but both of us were thinking about the pressure of finals, college and how hard it will be to leave all of our friends and not be able to see each other for a long time.” Foulke and Roberts were surprised when Zachary Spicer and John Armstrong of Pigasus Pictures visited their school Feb. 26 to let them know they won. The screenplay will be turned into a short film that will be shot in Fishers. “They said not only would we have our short film played before a release of one of their new movies, but also possibly enter it into film festivals,” Roberts said.

Blueprint for Improvement: Crooked Stick backyard transformation Commentary by Larry Greene

After solutions


Background Info: This home is in the Crooked Stick neighborhood in Carmel. Built in the 1980s, this home was in need of a larger kitchen with higher ceilings and updated outdoor living space.

The goal for the exterior remodel was to create a more functional backyard by adding spaces for the homeowner to entertain and enjoy the pool with family. 1. The existing sunroom was removed, and the kitchen was expanded. The new space was used to add a covered porch, which created shade in the backyard. 2. Two ceiling fans were added to the porch. New lighting also was added. 3. A new Trex composite deck was added to the left of the covered porch. The deck gives the homeowner extra space for outdoor seating and the grill, which was previously on the pool deck. 4. Design elements were added to the exterior of the home: Contrasting Trex railing and steps on the covered porch.


Before problems The home had plenty of exterior space to work with, but the design was not functional for the homeowner. The sunroom in the rear of the house was not being utilized. There was no shaded area in the backyard. Aside from the pool deck, there was no good space to entertain guests.
