Current Publishing, LLC All Rights Reserved. 30 South Range Line Road Carmel, IN 46032 317.489.4444 info@youarecurrent.com The views of the columnists in Current in Fishers are their own and do not necessarily reflect the positions of this newspaper.

Each year, the Heirbrandt family celebrates National Twins Day. FAMILY On Aug. 3, National Twins Day celebrated the bond between fraternal and identical twins. National Twin Day started in 1976 in the town of Twinsburg, Ohio, where the town conducted its first Twins Festival. Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt, a Westfield resident, is a twin to his brother, Mike, who lives in Cicero. “Growing up a twin was so fun,” Mark said. “You always had a best friend to play with. It’s been cool to see the closeness and unique nuances that come with being a twin.” Mark said being a twin also has been an asset on the campaign trail. “When I was running for re-election in 2016, Westfield and Fishers had a debate the same night,” he said. “So, I was panicking. I literally picked my phone up, called my brother and asked if there was any chance he could go there, tell people he was my brother and answer questions on my behalf. It really freaked everybody out because they couldn’t believe how much he was like me, even our mannerisms and voices.”

But the siblings’ similarities also can be confusing, especially in public. “I’ve been slapped because of him in one case,” Mark said. “And my brother’s been in an elevator and someone thanked him for a drainage project, and he had to apologize and say, ‘I’m sorry, you must think I’m my brother.’ So, I’m used to answering to Mike, and he’s used to answering to Mark.” There are many theories on the occurrences of multiples in families, from skipping generations to whether maternal or paternal genetics come into play during gestation. But Mark said his family defies all theories. The occurrence of twins and multiples is very common in his family. Mark’s sons, Ethan and Evan, are twins, and Mike’s sons, Chase, Tim and Joel, are triplets. Mark said he knows of two other instances of twins in his extended family. “My mother’s mother, which was my grandmother, had brothers that were identical twins, and their names were Ennis and Willis,” he said. “Also on my mom’s side, she had cousins that were identical twins. How odd is that to have that many sets of twins in our family? “I talk to my twin brother three or four times a day. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s a bond that is so unique.”

Area families participate in Operation Friendship By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Sam Burroughs sees great benefit in Operation Friendship. “It’s been nice to get a EXCHANGE larger world view,” BurPROGRAM roughs said. The 2019 Carmel High School graduate’s family hosted two students on the exchange from Yalta in the Crimean Peninsula for three weeks in July. Burroughs had been to Sweden in the summer of 2018 as part of the program. “When I went to Sweden, I got to experience how they live,” he said. “Hosting, you learn something from them and they learn how we live here.” Burroughs’ older sister, Leah, previously participated in the exchange program. The family of Patrick Hoen, a Westfield High School sophomore, hosted two students. “It’s fun to be around them and learn about the culture,” Hoen said. “They both loved New York. They talked how their country is a lot more strict and how people here are a lot more open.”

Fishers High School sophomore Karlie Duncan’s family hosted one student. “(You see) how different it is from our culture and kind of appreciating the small things,” Duncan said. This was Masha Alipatova’s first trip to the U.S. “It was (an) amazing experience,” Alipatova said. “It was my dream to come to the United States since my childhood.” Tykhon Novichenko, from the Crimea, said everyone was very friendly. He said he especially enjoyed seeing the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. Kristina Riley, a Fishers resident whose children were previously involved in the program, is chapter chair for Indy North chapter of Operation Friendship. “It’s a two-year commitment,” Riley said. “The kids that join have to join in a hosting year.” To get involved, email indy.north@operationfriendship.us.

A look at Shepherd’s Center Editor’s note: Current Publishing is partnering with the Hamilton County Executive Directors Group to run a guest column each month to showcase the work being done by area nonprofit organizations. Read more at youarecurrent.com. Commentary by Lauren Guynn A population shift is occurring in Hamilton County. We have thrived as a great place for youth and famiNONPROFIT lies to live. However, the number of seniors in Hamilton County will triple by 2030, surpassing younger generations (Indiana Association for Community and Economic Development 2013). While we boast a high quality of life for families, such does not apply to the aging population. Our community lacks a connection point for seniors to receive a comprehensive overview of the services that match their aging needs. People don’t know where to turn for help or what resources are available to them. Without Shepherd’s Center of Hamilton County, these obstacles would plague the older adults in our county. SCHC exists to promote and support

independent lifestyles for adults 55 and older. Our vision is to be known throughout Hamilton County as a trusted resource for connecting older adults with beneficial programs and resources to support their independence. SCHC ensures the aging population in Hamilton County has a great quality second-half of life. SCHC’s programs allow older adults and their caregivers to connect with what they need. The Together Today program offers social gatherings each day of the week around the county for older adults to create community. This program also prevents isolation by creating a safe space to interact with others in the same life stage.

Nolan Miles had some success when he started taekwonACCOMPLISHMENT do, earning a spot on his Noblesville’s school demonstration team. “But what I really wanted to do when I pictured taekwondo, I pictured fighting,” he said. “That’s what I was interested in. My parents helped me seek the coaches I needed. I would phase out other sports I would be doing and stay in taekwondo.” Nolan, 15, is ranked No. 2 nationally in male junior black belt, 63 kilograms (138 pounds) in the U.S. His younger brother Holden, 11, a sixth-grader at Hamilton Southeastern Intermediate School, has been ranked No. 1 all year in male youth black belt 40 kilograms (88 pounds). Nolan, a sophomore at Fishers High School, has been competing in taekwondo for 11 years. He has competed in sparring for three years. “It’s full-contact fighting with interesting rules, which are more unique to the sport,” Nolan said. Nolan started with a team in Houston, flying out for camps. He attended a two-week camp. Eventually, he switched to an Ohio team because of distance. For the past year, Nolan has been going to the Washington, D.C., area a few weekends each month when he doesn’t have tournaments to train with the U.S. Tigers. His mother, Crystal, took him to the airport on Fridays this past school year. Despite the hectic schedule and advanced classes, Nolan maintained a 4.0 grade point average as a freshman.  “This team has become extremely helpful and has become a huge part of my life,” Nolan said. “My head coach (Dennis Kim) and master has been training Olympians and is very respected among all the coaches. His athletes are all junior boys, which is my age division. I’ve learned from them, been challenged and continued to grow.” Holden has been invited to work with the U.S. Tigers and usually goes once a month. The Miles brothers will compete in the Atlanta Open Aug. 17, the Phoenix Open Aug. 24, the Canada Open in Toronto Oct. 5 and the International President’s Cup in Las Vegas Oct. 12. “Every tournament is based on the skill level that shows up and size of (the) tourna-

ment,” Nolan said. “You have to do your best at each one of them so you can accumulate your points. That’s why you have to go to many tournaments. Every tournament affects your journey.” Nolan will attend The Grand Slam tournament for the top six U.S. competitors in each division Nov. 1-4 in Colorado Springs, Colo. Nolan is seeking to be No. 1 so he can be on the Junior World Team that will travel to Bulgaria in October 2020. His goal is make the U.S. Olympic team in 2024. “USA Taekwondo reached out to us saying they were looking for people to represent us at the 2024 Games because he will be 20,” Crystal said. “For boys, that’s when they are mature. So, we were invited to train with (the U.S. Tigers) because it has Olympic coaches.” Crystal said her sons have won gold medals in nine different states this year. Holden won gold at the AAU Nationals July 4 in his division in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Holden said when he was younger, his parents took him to Nolan’s tournaments. “Taekwondo is not only a super fun thing to do but when I see movies, I compare myself to ‘Rocky’ or a boxer,” Holden said. “I say I’m sort of like that, too. I go out and train and then I fight.” The brothers have a training studio in their home’s basement.

Team tumbles into nationals By Renee Larr news@currentinfishers.com The trampoline and tumbling team at DeVeau’s School of GymGYMNASTICS nastics competed in two national tournaments last month. The team is made up of 70 athletes ranging from 4 to 18 years old. “We have three events in which we compete, power tumbling, trampoline and double-mini trampoline” said Betsy Dammeier, who supervises the team. Age group Levels 8 through Elite competed at the USA Gymnastics Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, July 2-6. Two athletes finished in the top 10. They were Araya Meredith, who placed fourth in the double mini and ninth in trampoline, and Connor Langsford, who placed sixth in the double mini and ninth in trampoline. Levels 5 through 7 competed at the Stars & Stripes Championships in West Palm Beach, Fla., July 20-21. The team won Developmental Club of the Year, and several athletes finished in the top 10. They were Collin King, who placed first in trampoline, fourth in tumbling and seventh in the double mini; Troy Borrero, who placed second in tum-

bling and fourth in the double mini; Trey Andrews, who place second in the double mini; Aidan Maroney, who place second in the double mini and fifth in trampoline; Haylee Holzback, who placed ninth in tumbling; Raeya Wilhelm, who placed eighth in trampoline; Jake Williams, who placed third in trampoline and fifth in the double mini; and Giovanna Arata, who placed ninth in trampoline. “We were absolutely blown away to receive the Developmental Club of the Year Award,” coach Jose Carlos Garcia Saenz said. “We are grateful and humbled to have received the votes of so many of our peers from the sport that we love.”

Fishers youth excels in cubing By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Luke Garrett began his cubing career innocently enough at age COMPETITION 9, when he asked his mother, Karen Garrett, if they could buy a Rubik’s Cube because he wanted to learn how to solve it. “We bought him his first Rubik’s Cube, and he would not go to bed that first night until he had solved it,” Karen said. “He watched YouTube videos for hours until he figured it out. Once it was solved, he would scramble it, start the timer and wouldn’t stop until it was solved. Each time he finished, he would get progressively faster. “From the time he decided he wanted to learn how to solve a cube it has been his goal to be one of the top competitive cubers in the world.” The 13-year-old Fishers resident, who started competing in 2017, has accomplished his goal. Garrett, a Fall Creek Junior High eighth-grader, has now competed in more than 40 competitions. Garrett finished fifth overall in 3x3 (cube style) and fifth in feet (solving the cube using his two feet) in the

Rubik’s Presents USA Cubing Nationals Aug. 1-4 in Baltimore. “The best part of Nationals was meeting with friends (and) cubers and seeing and meeting a lot of new people who do what you do,” Garrett said. Garrett improved his 3x3 world ranking average to 15th (fourth in the U.S.) with a 6.54 seconds average, and his single is now 4.95 seconds. The highlight was in the second round of the 3x3 when he broke his personalbest average and single and won the second round.  Garrett participated in the World Cube Association World Championship July 11-14 in Melbourne, Australia. He place seventh in the 3x3 with feet.

Field hockey, anyone?

By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com

A math class helped Ava Durso discover her favorite sport. SPORTS Durso, a Westfield Middle School seventh-grader, learned about the possibility of playing field hockey through Audra Heilman, her then-fifth-grade math teacher at Westfield Intermediate School. “I like how it’s a team sport and keeps you active,” Durso said. “I like how you can be a little rough but not too rough with it.” Heilman, a Noblesville resident who grew up in Easton, Pa., played field hockey at Indiana University with Indianapolis residents Gaby Olshemski (from Lehman, Pa.) and Danielle McNally (Ocean City, N.J.). When they all settled in the Indianapolis area, they formed the Crossroads Field Hockey Club. “Field hockey and sports led me to become a teacher, so I’m hoping to teach some of the skills I have and help the community even more,” said Heilman, a two-time All-American for the Hoosiers. Their mission is to grow the sport of field hockey in Indiana. “We are the first club team in the state,” Heilman said. Durso said she was the first of her friends to join. Two other friends from Westfield then decided to play on the club. The Southeastern Program of Recreation Team Sports, better known as S.P.O.R.T.S., in Fishers is still accepting registration for the field hockey recreation league for under-12 and under-16 teams this fall.

Scott Spillman, S.P.O.R.T.S. executive director, said for the first two years, the league has been permitted to accept players from outside of Fishers to help grow the sport. Clay Middle School seventh-grader Caroline Lafferty played in third and fourth grade before her family moved to Carmel. She was disappointed when she heard there wasn’t field hockey in Indiana. So, when Lafferty learned about the Crossroads Club, she joined. “It’s really fun to do because of the teamwork,” Lafferty said. “I like how there are different levels of skills you can use and air dribbling.” Lafferty’s mother, Jill, said it’s rewarding to watch the sport develop in Indiana. “As field hockey develops here in our state, the kids can just have fun and learn together without a ton of pressure,” Jill said. Olshemski said approximately 35 girls have been part of the program at one time or another. “The hardest part is getting people to show up because they don’t know what the sport is,” Olshemski said. “I went to an Indianapolis school and they didn’t know what it was, so I showed them a video of an Olympic game.” Olshemski said she is hoping Carmel Dads’ Club and Westfield Youth Sports Association will add leagues in the future. Another coach on the team is Molly McCue, a Zionsville resident and seventhgrade teacher at The Orchard School. McCue played at Denison University. Former IU player Karen Lorite also is a coach. S.P.O.R.T.S. is still accepting registrations for fall at hsesports.com. For more, visit crossroadsfhclub.com.

FOR ALL AGES Conner Prairie ramps up adult programming

By Anna Skinner anna@youarecurrent.com Conner Prairie Director of Public Affairs Christine DeJoy said COVER STORY Conner Prairie is often perceived as a destination for elementary-school field trips. But the interactive history museum is changing perceptions by offering new programming for adults. “It was always for everyone in the family, and I think with just happening through old marketing procedures and things like that, there was a lot of emphasis on little kids, and (Conner Prairie) was always known as a place for fourth-grade field trips,” DeJoy said. “Like, you came in fourth grade but have no idea what else Conner Prairie is.” For several years, Conner Prairie’s young professional group, the Horizon Council, has conducted a beer-tasting event, History on Tap, for visitors 21 and older. There also is the annual Holiday Cheers winter program, but DeJoy said there are many other programs that adults may not be aware of. “I think, No. 1, it’s so important to re-

member, even if you have graduated from high school or college or grad school, you never stop learning,” Program Director Kim McCann said. “That’s so important as we move into adulthood for yourself to expand your horizons or be aware, the past is not a thing that is set and done with. History informs the present, and it informs the future, so the idea that you sat in a history class in high school and it bored the crap out of you because it was all dates and names and locations, that’s not the kind of history we present here. “All the history we present is to help people bridge those connections between the past and present.” McCann has several new programs for Conner Prairie this year, including a Chautauqua speaker series, a ghost hunt and more. “For the first time ever, on Halloween night, we are having a public ghost hunt, so one of the questions we always get asked is whether or not the building are haunted,” she said. “They are all historical buildings. Some employees have had experiences that led them to believe there might be

something paranormal going on. We will be taking a small, limited group, a max of 36 people, and bring them to Conner Prairie on Halloween night from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. and give them the opportunity to spend some time and do ghost hunting in the reportedly most active (buildings) on the grounds – the Golden Eagle Inn, the Conner House, and then Judge Porter’s house out in the 1863 Civil War Journey.” The Chautauqua series is an interactive

speaker experience with specific topics, part of the adult programming Conner Prairie is experimenting with this year. “This is a new experience for us, creating adults-only programming, so this year we are dipping our toes into the pool and seeing how people react to things, see what they enjoy and what they gravitate toward, and that’s really going to inform what’s happening in 2020,” McCann said.

ESSAY

LETTER Rails with trails is more practical

Stay connected Commentary by Terry Anker Connected people are better. Sure, it is nice to have a friend who can get access to hot concert tickets before they go on sale. And it can be good to know someone with a strong Rolodex when it is time to get a private telephone number of someone who is particularly difficult to reach. But the best kind of connected people are basically those who link with others, not in a particularly spectacular or leveraged way, but in genuine interest and mutual friendship. They may not be two degrees away from the pope or the president. Yet, they take an interest in our lives. They know that we’ve had a bit of a cold lately. They know that we like chocolate ice cream but not strawberry. And they answer the phone whenever we call. They care. They have “connected” their lives to ours. They invest in the petty nuances that make each of us unique. Even the best among us only has so much of this quality to go around, so we have to watch its distribution. We keep jealous guard over what we share and what we ask, knowing that time is perhaps the most finite of all resources. These attachments seem minor, even inconsequential, until crisis, or change, or life, brings into focus the isolation that confronts us in the world alone. Families often matter little, until they are gone. Friends may have little use, until we find ourselves celebrating life alone. Colleagues and intellectual mates are superfluous, until we discover our ideas unchallenged. Isn’t it these connections that hold us together rather than hold us back? In an age of such polarization, tribalism and name-calling, our impulse is to disconnect. It’s understandable, but at what cost? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Reflections on self-reflection Commentary by Danielle Wilson Friends, I have returned. My grand adventure in Southeast Asia was a success, and even more important, it taught me a few things about myself. Here’s HUMOR what I learned: I have trouble going with the flow. This wasn’t exactly a revelation (just ask my husband Doo), but it reaffirmed the fact that I occasionally have a hard time summoning personal flexibility when plans go awry. A canceled flight, a suspicious taxi ride and a stolen wallet left me strung out on adrenaline and panic-induced paralysis. To my credit, I didn’t completely melt down, but in retrospect, I certainly didn’t handle my mini-crises with aplomb. I don’t need a man. Doo joined me for the first part of the trip, but I was solo for the last 12 days. I walked the streets of large cities at night, alone; managed to order food at restaurants, by myself, where English was not spoken; and exchanged money,

organized tours and stayed at questionable hotels, all without a guy by my side. I didn’t necessarily like being solo (seeing a dog carcass on a butcher’s block is a sharable moment), but I proved that I can. Girl power! I like small luxuries. I’m quite capable of traveling on a budget and fully understand that outside the U.S., things are exactly the same except entirely different. But abiding by the “Please don’t flush toilet paper of any kind down the pot” rule for almost three weeks is exhausting and disgusting and helped me to realize how often I take our modern American conveniences for granted. Also, democracy. I definitely have a new appreciation for democracy. Here’s to international experiences! Peace out.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK “Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”

- Alfred Hitchcock

Editor, As a central Indiana resident and chairman of the Board of Indiana Trails, I am appalled to learn there were no satisfactory bids to do a complete job of removing the Nickel Plate Railroad tracks, ties and rail spikes, and then rebuild the railroad crossings impacted. Yet, the Hoosier Heritage Port Authority still voted to move forward. There is a simple, practical answer to the situation that would actually be more beneficial to the community: Leave the tracks where they are and create a biking/ jogging/ hiking/ walking trail along the right-of-way of the existing tracks. That course of action would save the taxpayers the substantial expense of removing the beds and building new crossings at street and road intersections. Plenty of evidence exists of “rails and trails” coexisting for the benefit of the communities they serve. An analysis of the existing Nickel Plate right-of-way reveals there is sufficient space for a synergistic solution that will allow the creation of the trail and keep the railroad tracks for historic and entertainment purposes. Let’s do something positive for the northeast side of our community. Tom Williams, chairman Indiana Trails, Inc.

What’s in a name? No way Commentary by Dick Wolfsie My brother, Peter, lives in New York. When he visits us, I’d love to take him to a popular local golf range in FishHUMOR ers, where I know he’d have fun driving golf balls onto giant dart boards. But I can’t take him there. I’ll explain why, keeping in mind this is a family newspaper. My friends Bob and Cathy gave me a gift certificate to this place for my last birthday and I was eager to try it out. I invited my son to join me there on Tuesday evening for dinner and a chance to practice our hooks and slices. The hostess guided us to an enclosed area with a café table next to a golf tee looking out on the range. Here, you can dine and whine about your golf shots. We registered as new members at a computer kiosk. Brett and I both signed in, then we took a couple of iron shots. Soon, it was time to order our dinner. But as soon as we opened our menus, the server approached us. “Mr. Wolfsie,” she said, “the manager would like to talk to you.” The manager approached and quietly asked if I was Mr. Wolfsie. I said “Yes,” with a smile, assuming he recognized me from TV. Truth is, he had no clue who I was. He said, “I am going to have to ask you to re-register using a different first name. This is a family friendly business and we like to ensure a wholesome environment. The registration form does not accept any profanity or vulgarities (author’s note: This story is 100 percent true.) I signed in again, this time as Richard Wolfsie, although I considered trying other names, just to see how many times I could be censored by a software program. Remember, my name is printed at the top of this column every week. I hope you’re not offended. If so, thanks for not reporting me. But back to my brother, Peter. Do you see why I can’t ever take him to this place to hit golf balls?

DISPATCHES Ginger for pain relief – Ginger has been proven to work in reducing nausea related to everything from motion sickness to chemotherapy. One of its lesser-known benefits, however, is that it also reduces inflammation. Some research also suggests that it works just as well as the migraine drug sumatriptan (Imitrex). To relieve pain, take a 1,000 mg supplement at the onset of pain. Source: BottomLineHealth.com New migraine drug approved – Eli Lilly has developed a new migraine treatment that has been approved by the FDA. Emgalty is a monthly injection that Lilly says will be ready for commercial distribution shortly. Emgalty is meant to be a preventative treatment for the 30 million adults in the nation who suffer from migraine.

For better health, try to get up and do some light activity several times a day, even if you have a sedentary job. Moving around triggers blood flow, clears glucose from the blood and breaks down triglycerides.

Sunscreen products list an SPF on the label, but the SPF only refers to pro-

tection from UVB rays. Make sure to buy products that are labeled as “broad spectrum” in order to obtain protection from both types of radiation.

The massage will promote blood circulation in the area to help prevent bruising. Source: BottomLineHealth.com Dangers of juicing – Making your own juice from fresh fruits and veggies can be a healthy choice for many people. There is a risk, however, of getting an overdose of sugar. Removing the juice (and sugar) from the fiber of the fruit makes the sugar content more concentrated. A good rule of thumb is to use a rotating variety of greens as the base of your juice with only one serving of fruit. This will keep the sugar content much lower.

DISPATCHES Tiny stocks that deliver big - If you’re willing to take considerable risk in the stock market, you can find big winners among tiny publicly ­traded companies -- so-called microcaps. That is the one area where small investors have an advantage over large institutional investors and mutual funds, which typically consider the stocks too small to research, monitor or invest in. What to look for: Microcaps have market capitalizations ranging from $50 million to $300 million. You should focus on those that have fast revenue growth (20 percent annually or more), are currently profitable or will be in the near future and, most important, offer a unique product or service in fast-changing industries such as medical equipment or software. To limit risk, keep no more than 5 percent of your overall stock portfolio assets in microcaps. Attractive microcap stocks include: • Airgain (AIRG) makes embedded antennas for more than 45 million household products including digital smart TVs, Wi-Fi routers and ­automobiles. • Sensus Healthcare (SRTS) is a medicaldevice manufacturer specializing in radiotherapy systems to remove basal cell skin

cancer, which occurs in more than 4 million people annually in the U.S. It also makes laser equipment for skin rejuvenation and hair and tattoo removal. • USA Technologies (USAT) provides software for the new generation of millions of self-serve cashless vending machines that use wireless technology in unattended locations such as car washes, laundromats and arcades. The software not only enables electronic payments but also transmits ongoing data feedback on machine malfunctions, usage patterns and more to the vending machine companies.

GreekFest celebrates culture and Orthodox faith By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com GreekFest always has a dual purpose. “Fun is definitely part of it, but we would love for everyone to FESTIVAL learn about Greek culture and our Orthodox faith,” GreekFest President Christopher Lafter said. “Going back to the first festival in 1973, it’s been our goal to welcome our friends, family and the central Indiana community into the Holy Trinity community to share our culture and faith.” The 46th annual Indy GreekFest will run Aug. 23 to 25 at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 3500 W. 106th St., Carmel. Holy Trinity held its first service on Christmas Eve 2008 and held its first GreekFest in 2009. Before 2009, Greekfest was held elsewhere. “We want (visitors) to enjoy the food, the music and have a good time,” Lafter said. “It’s a lot of work but a lot of fun because everybody always enjoys sharing our food and our faith with the visitors.” Lafter had been in charge of the festival’s Grecian grills for several years before becoming president this year. Lafter, an Indianapolis resident, said the festival is, for the first time, partnering with the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis because it has an Ancient Greece exhibit. The Children’s Museum is a sponsor and is providing activities for the children’s booth. As customary, several dance troupes of varying ages will perform traditional Greek dances throughout the day. However, a new feature is the young adult group will offer Greek dancing lessons between performances. “We’re going to have people throughout the grounds dressed in traditional Greek clothing,” Lafter said. “There will be people in togas and ancient Greece warriors.” Lafter said organizers have scaled down food options, eliminating grills that produced souvlaki (a kabob). “(The grills) took up a lot of space and wasn’t one of the top items,” Lafter said. “It’s on hold. If there is a lot of demand for it, maybe we’ll bring it back next year. We still have the favorites and we’ve added

Many volunteers have already been hard at work making pastries As president and a member of the steering committee, Lafter is in charge of logistics. “My team figures out what tents we need and working with equipment rental,” he said. Other steering committee members supervise marketing, food and finances. Tours of the church will be offered. “The interior is complete. Through the years it’s been at different phases of completion,” Lafter said. “There is insight into what everything means (inside the church).” Festival proceeds go to the church for

various missions, Lafter said. Lafter estimates the average combined attendance for the three-day festival is 12,000 to 15,000.

The latest Christian Youth Theater offers a treat for parents as well as their children. “This show has been a MUSICAL blast to put together because it is such a small cast. It’s a new experience to get closer with my fellow castmates and directors while bringing everyone back to their childhoods,” Westfield High School junior Ellye Tibbets said. Christian Youth Theater is presenting “Schoolhouse Rock Live! Fringe Edition” for IndyFringe Festival Aug. 15 to 25. The show is based on the Emmy-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series. The 10-student cast includes five Carmel residents, Christian Baltz, Grace Kubek, Natalie Kern, Lillian Williams and Kate Smith. Other members include Abigail Drake, Westfield; Hannah Doran, Zionsville; Bridget Tuttle, Indianapolis; and Trey Weger, Fishers. Baltz said he watched the show when he was younger. “My dad has the DVD boxed set and my brother and I used to watch them in the car,” Baltz said. Doran, a Zionsville Community High School sophomore, said she hasn’t been in a

show like this before. “It’s so many shows coming together,” she said. “I watched the videos in school when I was younger. I really like ‘Elbow Room’ and ‘Unpack Your Adjectives.’” Weger, a Fishers High School freshman, said the production involves everyone. “It’s super fun and we get to hang out as a class,” Weger said. There are six performances at Oasis Theater at the Murat Shrine Center, 501 N. New Jersey St., Indianapolis. For a schedule, visit indyfringe.org.

Pearce to join Aldean on tour

By Mark Ambrogi • mark@youarecurrent.com Carly Pearce has been on a dizzying pace the last several months. “It’s been the craziest year CONCERT because I’m juggling a lot of different things. I’ve been on tour 95 percent of my life. I’m planning a wedding, I’m finishing an album and getting married,” said Pearce, who is marrying fellow country singer Michael Ray later this year. Pearce is one of the opening performers for Jason Aldean’s “Ride All Night Tour,” which includes Kane Brown. The tour stops at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center in Noblesville at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 23. “Jason is super sweet and very welcoming,” Pearce said. “I don’t feel like I could be on a bigger tour. Jason is at the top of his game, and honestly, Kane Brown is a headlining act in his own right.” Pearce was greeted by a bouquet of flowers from Aldean before the start of the tour. “It’s nice to get a nod from Jason that he feels I’m the right artist to open his show,” she said. “It makes his fans aware of me and pay attention to me probably more than they would elsewhere. I feel very lucky to

be able to do that.” Pearce is completing work on her second album. The first single, “Closer to You,” was released In November 2018. “It parallels exactly where I am in my life, meeting my fiancé and getting married later this year and all of that stuff,” Pearce said. Pearce said her attitude is “the best song wins for me.” Pearce has previously toured with Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and Rascal Flatts. “It benefits me where I am in my career to be aligned with people like Jason Aldean,” she said. “It helps me make my headlining shows more successful because people are seeing those tours.”

Lehman on display at arts fest By Mark Ambrogi • mark@youarecurrent.com Gabriel Lehman is taking a break from his hectic painting schedule for an annual important date. Lehman is a longtime feaARTIST tured artist at the Carmel International Arts Festival, which is set for Sept. 28-29. “It’s always a good show for us and we enjoy our local clients,” Lehman said. “We get a lot of repeat customers. It’s always been very beneficial. I can’t imagine going a year without doing this show.” Lehman will have 30 square feet of wall space in his light-domed tent. “Having the right tent has always been very important for us,” Lehman said. “Making sure, rain or shine, we are always going to be in business.” Lehman said he brings anywhere from 20 to 35 pieces, depending on their size. “I do illustrated surrealism,” Lehman said. “A lot of people say it looks like it walked out of a movie. It’s very character heavy. These are humanoid characters I’ve created. There is not a lot of earth involved in my pieces. It’s predominantly clouds.”

Gabriel Lehman’s painting, “Traveling Through the Treetops,” will be on display at the Carmel International Arts Festival. (Submitted photo)

Lehman, who had previously lived in Noblesville for several years, works from his home studio in Nineveh. Lehman, 42, and his wife, Jamie, selfpublished a book, “Splat/Kitty Calamity.” Jamie did the writing and Lehman did the illustrating. Shelby County Reads awarded it Book of the Year. “We toured all the elementary schools and had a lot of fun doing it,” Lehman said. “It’s very slapstick and fun. My wife is a poet and she does sing-song rhymes. She does so many short poems that aren’t big enough to make into a book.” For more or to volunteer for CIAF, visit carmelartsfestival.org.

Blueprint for Improvement: Resort-style living in Carmel Commentary by Larry Greene

THE SOLUTION

After

Before

A pool framed by an all-new outdoor living area make for a breathtaking backyard. 1. A new covered pavilion and storage structure were constructed in an Lshape, just off the existing sunroom. 2. Stacked stone accents surround the seating and entertaining area. The spacious granite countertop has a curved edge for ample, comfortable seating. 3. Infrared radiant heaters mounted to the stained pine ceiling allow the outdoor space to be enjoyed in the cooler months. 4. The homeowners selected gray pavers for the pool decking and patio. The home’s exterior was repainted for a perfectly polished result. To get started on your own remodeling project, visit us at caseindy.com or stop by one of our three locations.

Background: This home was built in 2004 in Carmel’s Valley Brook neighborhood. The owners bought the home and remodeled the exterior and interior before moving in.

THE CHALLENGE The owners were drawn to the home’s expansive backyard, lined with a small creek and beautiful trees. They wanted to create more space to enjoy the outdoors for swimming, grilling and spending time with friends and family.

Larry Greene is the owner of Case Design/Remodeling. You may email him at lgreene@ caseindy.com. To see more before-and-after pictures of this project, visit caseindy.com/blog.

Glance at Sydney Harbour Bridge Commentary by Don Knebel The Sydney Harbour Bridge stands alongside the famed Opera House as symbols of Sydney, TRAVEL Australia. Residents once doubted that the bridge, dubbed the Coat Hanger for its shape, was safe. Now, they can climb it lawfully. Sydney began as an English prison colony on the south side of Sydney Harbour in an area called the Rocks. In 1815, an English architect sent to Sydney for forgery proposed a bridge connecting the Rocks to the north shore of the harbor. Nothing came of that or similar proposals floated during the next 100 years. At the end of World War I, the government of New South Wales approved building a bridge across the harbor using a so-called “through arch” design inspired by New York City’s Hell Gate Bridge. In such a design, abutments at the bases of the lower arches support the entire weight of the bridge, but local residents were skeptical that such a design would be safe. To gain public confidence, the builders added four concrete and granite pylons atop the abutments, whose only function was ornamental. Before the bridge opened in 1932, 96 steam locomotives stood-end-to-end on the bridge’s four railroad tracks to confirm
