Hamilton County officials detailed the new Hamilton County Jail expansion project during a ground-breaking ceremony April 10 at the site on the north side Event of the jail, 18102 Cumberland Rd., Noblesville. Phase I construction of the expansion project is scheduled to begin this month, and the $13.5 million project is expected to be complete in April 2019. The first phase will add 120 beds. Phase II, which costs just less than $4 million, will add an additional 136 beds. Hamilton County commissioners are waiting for additional funds to begin Phase II. The Hamilton County Jail originally was built in 1993 to hold 296 inmates. Jail population is now nearing 400 inmates. “I think it’s important to note that Hamilton County is not only one of the fastest-growing counties in the state, but also one of the largest counties as well with a population of over 360,000, which is expected to double in size by 2050,” Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt said. “I think the success we’ve had is really attributed to the collaborative

efforts we have with the mayors and all our towns here, and we work well together to make Hamilton County one of the safest counties not only in the state of Indiana, but in the United States.” In addition to the extra beds, the expansion will have an interior recreation area, a classroom and a medical support area. Dining space will be accommodated in existing space in the old jail. The new addition to the jail will have 11 cell pods with 84 cells consisting of two- and four-man cells. Hamilton County Sheriff Mark Bowen outlined how House Bill 1006, passed in January 2016, affected the jail’s population and the need for expansion. The legislation requires Level 6 felons to serve their terms in county jails rather than state prisons. Bowen said the county tried to mitigate the growth during the past 25 years, such as moving female inmates to the juvenile center. “We have done all we can do, and as the county continues to grow and expand and issues continue to rise, we have no choice but to break ground on a new building,” Bowen said. “We need to be prepared for the future.” For more, visit

Kacy’s Krew gives back to Fair Haven Foundation

By Anna Skinner • The sixth annual Fair Haven Art and Craft Market benefiting the Fair Haven Foundation will return from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 28 for the second philanthropy year at Cornerstone Lutheran Church, 13450 E. 116th St. The event is in memory of Kacy Trick Meyer, who died of colon cancer and spent time at Fair Haven during her treatment. “My family created this fundraiser in memory of my sister Kacy,” said Tricia TrickEckert, Lawrence resident and creator of Kacy’s Krew, which puts on the fundraiser. “Kacy stayed at one of the Fair Haven apartments when she was undergoing treatment for colon cancer.” The Fair Haven Foundation provides housing near hospitals in downtown Indianapolis for patients and families facing lifethreatening illness such as cancer, highrisk pregnancies and organ transplants. “One of the things Kacy and I talked about is, we had been talking about how to

give back to Fair Haven. It was something she felt strongly about,” Trick-Eckert said. “We didn’t get it started before she died, and I promised her I would give back to Fair Haven in her memory and in her honor, so that’s what we do, that’s why we do this, to help other families going through other life-threatening diagnoses.” The art and craft market features vendors offering handmade items and a bake sale. Admission is $1. Some vendors donate a portion of their sales to Kacy’s Krew. All Bake sale profits are donated to Kacy’s Krew. Raffle tickets will be sold for $1. The market is Kacy’s Krew’s largest fundraiser. Last year, the organization raised $30,000. Trick-Eckert said the goal is to raise at least $15,000, which funds an apartment for one year. Although it hasn’t been determined yet, Trick-Eckert said the group is working on organizing a lunch sale. For more, visit or the Kacy’s Krew and the Fair Haven Art & Craft Market Facebook page.

Tea Party at the Fort will feature food and tea from local Lawrence restaurants, spread across the historic Theater at the Fort stage. (Submitted photo)

tea party at the fort Arts for Lawrence preps for annual party, spring events By Sadie Hunter • The Arts for Lawrence’s Tea Party at the Fort has expanded after Cover story a successful first year. In its second year, the event is a unique type of open house for the arts organization that operates the historic Theater at the Fort at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Lawrence. “It is a fundraising event, but we also like to refer to it as a ‘friendraising event’,” Arts for Lawrence Executive Director Judy Byron said. “We really hope to bring people in who haven’t already been to the theater to show them a little bit about what we do. It’s just a lot of fun.” With tables spread across the stage of the 200-seat theater at 8920 Otis Ave. that used to show plays and films to the servicemen stationed at the base, friends of the theater and people wanting to learn more about it will gather for a traditional tea party at noon April 25. “We actually set the party up on the stage, and we have a dress-up table so guests can kind of act the part if they want to,” Byron said. “So, we have some hats and gloves and stoles and jewelry even.” Local business supporters and neighbors of the theater are helping out with food, including Porter’s Books and Break, provid-

ing small versions of their sandwiches. More food will be provided by other popular restaurants near the fort – Lawrence Bakery, Fitzgerald’s and Heidelberg House, to name a few. Guests also will hear live music from Mr. Warren, keyboardist for Queen Delphine and The Crown Jewels. “It’s one hour for lunch, and everyone will sit down at a themed table, which is new this year,” Byron said. “We’ll do a very brief presentation to just talk about what we do, and then there are always a few door prizes as well. We’ve designed it so if you have a one-hour lunch break, you can still come and enjoy it, and if guests have the opportunity to stay longer, we offer backstage tours and things like that.”

Guests will choose from a variety of tea and food options at the event. (Stock image)

Countdown to summer

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Commentary by Terry Anker With each trip planned and each itinerary booked, we can find ourselves stretched between excitement and anxiety. Even as we eagerly anticipate the chance to break away from our daily routines and find solace in an exotic locale, often unknown to us but for our imaginations, we can harbor a bit of secret apprehension. New foods, new beds, new climates, new languages – each deliver to us an unsettling dose of, well, new. We like what we have – that’s why we have it. Still, we seek something more. Perhaps it is part of our human condition. What we have is never as good as what we want – which is never as good as what we have. The paradox is most confusing. Yet, we cannot find a substitute. Even in a world of social media, virtual reality and Asian-fusion, travel is the most direct way to understand a culture and, perhaps, lower our defenses just a bit. Famed Hollywood actress Shirley MacLaine is attributed with noting that, “The more I traveled, the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.” Shared human experience, in Istanbul or Rio, serves best to help us find our commonality and to celebrate our difference. One travels to learn about others. But, that education does not stand alone. Very often, we learn more about ourselves. At first, one might wonder why they eat what they eat, do what they do, or live like they live. Then, in a moment of reflection, the question is turned inward. When observing them in a strange land, the questions come easily. What might the mirror say if we asked it the same? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Cherish participates in local campaign Commentary by Wendy Gamble and Kelly Reif Cherish is honored to be a part of the No More Secrets no more Campaign. As Hamilton secrets County’s Child Advocacy Center, we see firsthand the brave kids and teens who come forward to share their stories of abuse. We work to provide a comfortable, child-friendly and safe environment where victims can talk to a trained professional. Last year alone, 457 kids came through Cherish’s doors and told their stories, many for the first time. This was an 18 percent increase in the number of kids we served in 2016, and a 42 percent increase since 2010. Statistics tell us that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will experience some form of abuse, almost always by someone they know. There are countless reasons why children choose not to disclose abuse. It may take a child days, months or years to disclose. Above all, believe and support the child. Stay calm and listen carefully to what the child tells you. Do not inter-

rogate or ask too many questions, but let the child know you want to listen to everything they have to say. Let them know they are loved, accepted and believed. Take any necessary steps such as getting them needed medical attention and keep them safe and away from the abuser. Also, you must immediately report the abuse to the proper authorities. Indiana law mandates that anyone who suspects that a child is being or has been abused or neglected must report it. To report abuse, call the DCS Indiana Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 1-800-800-5556. This hotline is open 24/7 and you can report anonymously. Remember that your reaction and behaviors following a child’s disclosure greatly impacts their ability to deal with their trauma. Your love and support during this time can help their recovery journey immensely. Seek the help of an experienced trauma therapist to aid in their healing. It’s also important to respond to your own feelings and responses to a child being abused. For the full column, visit

Sing with me and the lead from Europe: “It’s the fi-nal count-down!” We’re in the home stretch, people. The final countdown to summer. Six weeks or so humor until late mornings, homeworkfree nights and, God willing, warm weather become the norm. I’m not sure why I need June to get here so badly, but these last few months have been exhausting. Anyone else? For me, it’s been a slow, almost imperceptible build-up of teaching and parenting stresses combined with schizophrenic weather that has me longing for a beach and a mai tai. But I didn’t realize how tired and overwhelmed I was until spring break because like most moms, I just kept pushing forward, regardless of my own state of mind. After a short weekend in New York City with one of my twins to check out some colleges and stand in line for hours to enjoy a milkshake/cookie dough/Statue of Liberty (in order of priority), I immediately lost a fight to a nasty cold and subsequently did nothing except sneeze and mainline Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet for 72 hours. By Thursday, I was finally able to tackle the long-neglected yard work, taxes and actually cook a nonKraft dinner, but was in bed by 8:30 almost every night. Not exactly the break I had planned, but clearly much-needed. So, as I look ahead to these last few weeks of school, I’m hoping I can make it to May 30. The sun is shining today, which is a good sign, and homework for my kiddos should subside as exams approach. At the very least, I now have a mantra: “It’s the final countdown!” Peace out.

Now hear this Commentary by Dick Wolfsie Last week, I had my annual physical. I was sitting in the waiting room filling out a form humor Titled, “A SIMPLE TEST TO SEE IF YOU HAVE HEARING LOSS.” Here are a few questions, verbatim: “Do others complain that you watch TV with the volume too high?” My wife comes into the bedroom while I’m watching Colbert and says, “I can’t believe how loud this is.” I know she is saying that, because I can read lips. “Do you have to sit up front in church to understand the sermon?” I’m Jewish, but when I was a kid in Hebrew school, I cut class all the time. Even when my hearing was perfect, I didn’t have a clue what the rabbi was talking about. “Do you have difficulty understanding women?” The questionnaire says some loss is so gradual you don’t even know you have a problem unless someone brings it to your attention. Gee, I wonder who that would be? “Do you have trouble understanding children?” Babies? Not a word. Toddlers? Not a prob-

lem. Teenagers? Not a clue. “Do you know where sounds come from?” This is a trick, like the “tree falling in the forest” question. Here’s another: If your spouse is complaining about something and you can’t hear the griping, is there still a problem? “Can you hear people in another room?” No. That is the main reason I went into another room.  “Have others mentioned that you don’t seem to hear them?” Maybe, but I was probably in another room at the time. “Do you avoid family meetings because you can’t understand the conversations?” No, I avoid family meetings because in the words of Hoosier humorist Kin Hubbard, “There is plenty of peace in a home where the family doesn’t make the mistake of trying to get together.” “Do you have ringing in your ears?” Occasionally. But I realized the noise meant there was someone at the front door.

Bangs Labs celebrates 30 years By Anna Skinner • Bangs Laboratories, 9025 Technology Dr. in Fishers, celebrated anniversary 30 years of operation April 1. The company manufactures uniform polymer, silica and magnetic microsphere products for diagnostic, research and flow cytometry applications. It was originally established in Dr. Leigh and Sonia Bangs’ home in 1988. Kathy Kilbride, manager of technical services and marketing, said the anniversary was celebrated internally. The laboratory was under construction at the time. “We are under an office expansion, so (we were) still under construction when the anniversary hit,” Kilbride said. “During the course of the next 12 to 18 months, we own the building next to us and are expanding onto that property with additional lab and office space.” Kilbride said the company has grown during the past three decades and Bangs still resides in the area. “It’s been 30 years for us, and it has grown from Leigh and Sonia and a family business to what is now about 30 employees,” she said. “Our facility here is about

Goodwin, Ziobro join Feinstein for Songbook reunion at Palladium By Mark Ambrogi • For Julia Goodwin and Nick Ziobro, this concert venue is a home away from home. “The Palladium is where concert I first fell in love with the Great American Songbook,” Goodwin said. “I always say it is one of my favorite venues to perform at, and I feel so at home whenever I return.” Goodwin, the 2013 Songbook Ambassador, and Nick Ziobro, 2012 Songbook Ambassador, will join Michael Feinstein in concert at 8 p.m. April 21 at The Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. “The audience can expect to see the two of us returning to the place where it all began for us, celebrating the music that made us who we are,” Ziobro said. “I can’t wait to step back on stage at the Palladium with Michael. The Palladium always feels like home every time we come back to perform, and it’s really exciting to be there with Michael, where it all began with the Songbook Academy.” Feinstein is the founder of the Great American Songbook Foundation and artistic director for the Center for the Performing Arts. “Michael is an undeniably incredible talent, mentor and friend. It is always a pleasure working with him,” Goodwin said. “Nick and I have each been very fortunate to perform with Michael many times over the years. Michael has taken us under his wing to places such as Carnegie Hall, 54 Below, Jazz at Lincoln Center and more.” Ziobro said Feinstein has been an amazing mentor on those experiences, offering guidance and advice. As the duo Nick and Julia, Goodwin and Ziobro have been performing together for a little more than three years. “However, we’ve known each other since a very young age through community theater involvement,” Goodwin said. Goodwin, 19, is from Baldwinsville, N.Y., and a sophomore at Syracuse University. Ziobro, 21, is from Syracuse, N.Y., and graduated from Rider University.

“We’ve known each other for years because we are from the same hometown. However, we didn’t start performing as a duo until about December 2014, so a little over three years,” Ziobro said. They met performing in a “13” musical. Goodwin said she was in awe of Ziobo’s talent and they clicked immediately as friends. “I had heard of Julia before because when she was really young she was a local celebrity,” Ziobro said. “She had some viral Youtube hits, and everyone was really excited to meet her.

years later we’re partners in crime.” Goodwin said she and Ziobro will showcase a wide variety of the Songbook songs. “We have a Carole King mashup that I’m particularly excited about,” Goodwin said. “People can expect an exciting evening, filled with music that has shaped us into the people and artists we are today. Especially with the amazing band led by Tedd Firth, it will be a show you don’t want to miss.” Ziobro said he and Goodwin always do a fun duet of the two Harold Arlen classics, “Stormy Weather” and “When The Sun Comes Out.” Goodwin and Ziobro were both on “America’s Got Talent.” “‘America’s Got Talent’ was a very cool experience,” Goodwin said. “Nick and I were on different seasons of the show, but both appreciate the exposure, friendship, and opportunities it gave us.”

CCP presents ‘Ragtime’ By Mark Ambrogi • “Ragtime the Musical” is based on a 1975 novel about the early 1900s but still has relevance today. musical That’s one reason Rich Phipps is pleased the Carmel Community Players is presenting the musical. Phipps, a CCP board member, will appear in the six performances of the musical April 20 to 29 at the Ivy Tech Auditorium in Noblesville. “Even though the story is set in New York at the turn of the 20th Century, it deals with important themes that are very relevant today, such as immigration issues, racial discrimination and social justice,” Phipps said. “It has some serious subject matter and some rough language, but we hope that parents will not hesitate to bring their children and then have some important dialogue at home. I love the way the story weaves in some historical figures such as Booker T. Washington, Evelyn Nesbit, Henry Ford and others. And everyone can enjoy the magnificent musical score which won the 1998 Tony Award.” Director Doug Peet, a Carmel dentist, said the show is very topical. “The show is about racism and ethnic

This is the CCP’s first show since losing its Playhouse at Clay Terrace. Although that is disappointing, Phipps said it is a blessing for the show since it is a much bigger venue, with a larger stage.  For more, visit

I’ll be the first to admit I didn’t understand or enjoy much of the Shakespeare assigned to me in high school. I grammar guy hope that doesn’t ruin my reputation with my fellow word nerds. On the other hand, I love how Shakespeare invented words that are still common in our modern lexicon, including wormhole, swagger and skim milk. Although word scholars now debate how many words he actually came up with, Shakespeare certainly knew a lot of words. That reminds me of a word duo that often gets mismatched and misused: a lot and allot. First, I want to get something out of the way and settled so we can get on with our lives: alot is not a word (unless you capitalize it and are referring to the town in India named Alot). The non-word “alot” often gets used instead of “a lot,” which means a large amount or large number. People mistakenly write things like “I know alot about robot movies.” In this sentence, the person should have written “a lot.” Allot is a verb that means to give out, distribute or divide. It doesn’t get used as much as its word cousin a lot, but it has its

merits. Make sure to allot the same amount of Skittles to each child unless you want a riot on your hands. In this case, an even allotment can save you from a disastrous toddler turf war. I will say, we use the phrase “a lot” far too often. It’s vague and doesn’t add much pizzazz to your writing or speaking. Instead, consider words and phrases like a plenitude, several, heaps, an abundance and scads. As an adjective, “a lot” is a bland nothingburger (check your dictionary). The more inspiring words are like the little-used exotic spices in your spice rack that add variety and interest to your bowl of alphabet soup. By expanding your vocabulary, you make Shakespeare’s ghost proud. In conclusion, alot isn’t a word. Allot means to give out. A lot means a large amount, and it’s kind of boring. I challenge you to use something more interesting instead. You have a myriad of options. Curtis Honeycutt is a freelance humor writer. Have a grammar question?

Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute in Venice. (Photo by Don Knebel)

Miracle of the Salute Commentary by Don Knebel

by Titian, who lived in Venice in the 16th century. Much of the art suggests Venice’s miraculous deliverance from the plague. A black dot in the center of the floor, directly below the statue of Mary standing atop the dome’s lantern, is said to radiate healing energy. Every November 21, crowds walk on a temporary bridge built over the Grand Canal from Saint Mark’s Square to the Salute, where they celebrate Mary’s protection of the city. For Venetians and visitors alike, it is one of Venice’s most important days.

One of Venice’s brightest and most uplifting buildings remembers a dark period in its history, when it took a travel miracle to save the city. In 1630, a new outbreak of the bubonic plague hit Venice. A third of its population of 140,000 was soon dead and prayers from local churches had not stopped the dying. With the survivors desperate, the Venetian Senate appealed directly to Saint Mary, promising to build a magnificent church in her honor if the wave of death subsided. It did, and the SenDon Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornate immediately initiated a competition for burg LLP. For the full column a suitable design.
