Reconstruction of U.S. 31 at the 116th, 111th and 106th streets intersections isn’t slated to begin until 2015, but some Carmel resiroad work dents already are foreseeing “a nightmare.” Construction of Illinois Street between 116th and 111th streets is ongoing, likely opening by the end of this summer. But plans to extend the road even farther south are on hold. Carmel officials are battling whether the city can afford to build the multi-million dollar extension before the INDOT begins work on U.S. 31. With U.S. 31 bottlenecking to one lane in either direction during construction, the extended Illinois Street is seen by many as an integral siphoning point for traffic. “We promised the completion of Illinois Street,” City Councilor Eric Seidensticker said recently. Seidensticker “(Travel) is going to be reduced on U.S. 31, so there have got to be relief valves in place and ready to go. A finished, four-lane Illinois Street is a relief valve; two-lane Spring Mill Road isn’t.” With Keystone Parkway set to serve as the official detour for U.S. 31, Mayor Jim Brainard was optimistic the four-lane Pennsylvania Street and two-lane Spring Mill Road on either side of the major highway would be able to handle the overflow traffic. But at least one resident disputes that. R.J. Gerard, who lives in the Park Meadow neighborhood at 136th Brainard Street and Spring Mill Road, called the scenario “a nightmare.” “We have experienced this sort of thing in the past when Carmel was installing the roundabouts,” Gerard said. “The ripple effect of the traffic made morning and evening commutes just dreadful. The road is maxed out right now, in terms of what it can handle traffic-wise. With more cars it will become unusable. I am already planning alternative routes.” Brainard said he’d like to build the second phase of Illinois Street, but there just isn’t money in the budget due to higher-than-anticipated land acquisition costs.

“Illinois is important to build at some point,” Brainard said, adding that repaving existing city streets takes priority at this time. “INDOT and our engineering department are in contact weekly, if not more. They just don’t want anything to interfere with their construction.” INDOT spokesman Nathan Riggs said the city and state were in contact regarding construction particulars, but declined to take a stance on the need to finish Illinois Street. Brainard hopes the nearby Bridges development – an anticipated $100-million mix of retail, office and residential apartments developed by Tom Crowley – would generate enough property tax revenue to build the road in the future. Crowley didn’t return a phone message seeking an update on the project. Initial estimates had construction costs coming in around $7 million. City Council president Rick SharpSharp claims that number may go down to $4 million, based on conversations with city engineer Mike McBride, but Brainard said he hadn’t heard that new number. McBride hadn’t responded to a voice mail seeking comment by press time. Sharp Sharp said he and other councilors are pouring through the city’s budget trying to find the needed cash. He urged the city to put out bid requests immediately so the project doesn’t fall behind. “It’s just a matter of will,” Sharp said. “If the will’s there, things will get done.”

Prevent Hazel Dell litter

Commentary by Jeff Worrell

I suspect many of us view Hazel Dell Parkway as a well designed, highly functional north/south thoroughfare. A signifivolunteerism cant number of us see it as a pleasant route to include on a nightly bike ride or leisurely stroll. And, it appears, a good many of us view it as a convenient trash can. Yes, a dirty, filthy, trash receptacle. Joe and Shirley Linne know firsthand that Hazel Dell has become a garbage dump because they are fighting the never-ending eyesore by serving as volunteer trash collectors. A much needed ritual, they scour and police from the 126th Street Roundabout to Main Street, bending over and gathering someone else’s disgusting refuse. During the summer months, Joe and Shirley make their trash trip as often as twice per week. Should the thought of someone driving along, rolling down their window and intentionally tossing the fast food wrapper out the window not turn your stomach, Joe Linne is reporting an even more disturbing trend. “As you can tell from the picture, a significant portion of the trash we are collecting on a weekly basis is alcohol related. Disturbing to me is the fact that much of it we are finding in the median, which although not conclusive, could indicate drivers are drinking and driving,” he said. His reasoning is that the median points to use of the driver’s side

Gently Used window to hurl the liquor bottle or beer can. At a minimum, we can at least assume driving while holding. My desire would be to put Joe and Shirley out of a job. Although their dedication and free labor is much appreciated, all east of Keystoners should be grateful. But let’s admit it; this is not a good use of their time. To all readers whose attention was captured by the ugly picture, this is your Carmel. It is time to realize tossing out the window is unacceptable and communicate that to our children, friends and fellow drivers. Only you can prevent Hazel Dell litter!

Council tables arts grants

By Robert Annis • rob@youarecurrent.com

Fifteen local art groups might not receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding from the city this year, as Carmel City Council arts members try to resolve a budget shortfall. The council voted to table the more than $707,000 in grants for the time being after Councilor Eric Seidensticker raised objections, citing repaving concerns and the incomplete Illinois Street project. The day after the meeting, Councilor Sue Finkam expressed hope that the funding would merely be delayed and Seidensticker not canceled entirely. “I think it’s reasonable (to hold off on the grants) because we don’t know exactly what’s happening with the budget,” Finkam said. “I hope it will take just a couple of meetings (to sort things out). I don’t anticipate giving them no money.” City revenues are expected Finkam to be between $1 million and $4 million less than anticipated for 2013. Outside consultants for Mayor Jim Brainard, who was absent from Monday’s meeting, are attempting to come up with an exact figure, but Sharp acknowledged it’s probably on the lower end of that scale. The grants make up less than 1 percent of the city’s annual budget. Cheri Dick, executive director Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre, and Alan Davis, president of the Carmel Symphony Orchestra, spoke earlier in the meeting about their successes with last year’s

Which groups were nominated for grants? How much would they have received? • Actors Theatre of Indiana – $110,000 • Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre – $200,000 • Carmel Arts Council – $16,556 • Carmel Clay Historical Society – $25,000 • Carmel Community Players – $15,000 • Carmel Fountain Square Committee – $4,800 • Carmel Symphony Orchestra – $205,000 • Central Indiana Dance Ensemble – $12,000 • Friends Helping Friends – $400 • Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre – $45,000 • Indiana Ballet Conservatory – $20,000 • Indiana Wind Symphony – $12,000 • Indianapolis Symphonic Choir – $12,000 • International Talent Academy – $15,000 • Museum of Miniature Houses – $15,000 • TOTAL – $707,756

funding. Both left soon after the council voted to table the grants. Dick said in an e-mail after the meeting she was “hopeful that the mayor and the council will have their discussion soon as it relates to the budget, but respect the council’s responsibility to execute financial due Dick diligence.” It’s not known how severe the impact will be on the city’s art groups in the event the council decides not to move forward with the grants. The city made an effort within the last year or so to lessen local groups’ dependence on taxpayer dollars, capping city contributions to 30 percent of the organizations’ total revenue.

What Happened: Fiber optic ordinance approved An agreement between the City of Carmel and the Town of Fishers will complete the city’s fiber optic conduit. Carmel has been laying underground conduit for three years in preparation of linking to a county line in Fishers. “Fishers doesn’t wish to charge us anything,” he said. “All of our communication issues should be greatly resolved.”

What Happened: Fund transfer for street paving An ordinance could transfer $1.2 million from the Local Road and Street Fund for street paving and allocate appropriation reductions to the Motor Vehicle Highway Fund. “Most people here agree this money needs to be moved,” said Councilor Snyder. “It will total $1.7 million for the street department to cover the basic resurfacing and repairing of neighborhoods the city does on a yearly basis.”

What’s next: The ordinance has been sent to the finance committee. A public hearing will be held May 6.

Chicago-area therapy opens here By Liz Schrader • news@currentincarmel.com

Carmel-based physical therapist Ara Knepp recently brought the Chicago-area physical therapy giant Athletico to the NOW OPEN Hoosier State, opening the Carmel branch at 912 S. Range Line Road. Knepp, who worked for six years as a physical therapist and assistant facility manager at one of Athletico’s 72 Chicagoland locations, has experience in all facets of the field and specializes in sports medicine. As the only physician in the 35,000-square-foot Carmel branch, she wears many hats. “As we get more patients, I’ll look to hire on more employees,” she said. “Right now, I do it all. I’m the facility manager, I do marketing, HR and of course, I treat patients.” Knepp and her husband moved to Indiana two years ago to be closer to family. She worked at a few different physical therapy clinics in the area, but said she missed Athletico’s business model and mission. While she works under the Athletico name, she said it’s a challenge being the only branch in the area. “Compared to the clinics in Chicago, where everyone knows your name, it’s a lot easier to run a successful clinic with so many other clinics with the same name in your backyard. Down here, I’m the only one, so it’s a lot different to market the business and educate the public about your services,” she said. As a former physical therapist for the professional soccer team, the Chicago Fire, Knepp said she considers herself an expert in treating runners and offers services catered toward the running population, such as video analysis.

Oliver just misses 2 explosions

By Chris Bavendar • news@currentincarmel.com

Carmel runner Todd Oliver had just finished the Boston Marathon and was three blocks from the finish line when he heard Boston explosions.  “I was at gear check and had just gotten my medal and was changing my clothes when we heard both explosions,” Oliver said by cell from his Boston hotel, the Westin, which became the police command post after the bombings last Monday. “I looked at the volunteers and asked if they knew what was going on. It’s like when you are at a bar and someone drops a glass and it shatters and shuts everyone up, and then the murmur kicks in again.” Oliver, who started in the third wave of runners around 10:40 a.m. and finished with a time of 3 hours, 45 minutes, said within a few minutes it was obvious by the look on passing police officer’s faces that something major was going on. Something major indeed. At least 160 people were injured and three are reported dead after two explosions erupted near the finish line of the Marathon Monday afternoon. “They started clearing the main roads of walk traffic and then there were seven to eight ambulances en route to that area,” he said. “At first, people thought it was a transformer, but then we could see the people running around crying and then traffic was locked down.”

Oliver posted this photo on his Facebook page showing a view from his hotel of the debris left behind on the street after the bombings.

Oliver is race director for the Carmel Marathon which was Saturday. He said security for the event was already in place before the tragedy in Boston. “We have 96 police officers on our course and the command center at the finish line,” he said. “We have 26 ham radio operators on the course who have government clearance. We also have four ambulances covering the course as well.” Oliver noted that as one of the five largest and most recognized events, the Boston Marathon has many countries represented with elite athletes and Olympians “and if someone wanted to get attention, this is the place to do it unfortunately.”

White named teacher of the year

You’re invited to our

OPEN HOUSE

By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com Third-grade Carmel Elementary teacher Renee White was named Carmel Clay Schools’ Stephen A. Backer Teacher of the Year at a surprise ceremony early last week. Schools “It was a complete surprise,” White said. “I hadn’t realized that I had been recommended or that I was even in the running for it.” During what White had been told was a staff meeting last Monday, faculty and administration made the big announcement. Dr. Jeff Swensson, CCS superintendent, and Susan Backer, widow of Stephen Backer, personally attended to show their support for White. Other members of the faculty had informed White’s parents and brother of the ceremony during the previous week. The family made the trip from La Porte and stayed overnight to surprise White on Monday morning. “It was overwhelming. I’ve had a hard time even thinking straight. I really wasn’t expecting it. We have such a strong district with so many deserving teachers,” White said. After the surprise announcement, faculty and staff members held a reception in place of the initially announced staff meeting, something White jokingly considered to be an extra benefit of receiving the award. In her nominations, White was described as “gifted in all domains of education, including the areas of student/parent relationships, planning/

assessment/instruction and leadership.” Hesitant to talk herself up, White had put some thought into why she believes she may have received the award. “I think I work really hard. I put in really long hours, and I think people realize it and are appreciative,” she said. “I know I have done what I can to help my colleagues and my (students’) parents, and I think they are appreciative.” With the announcement rewarding her past work and giving her a standard to strive for moving forward, White is hoping that being named Teacher of the Year will allow her to reach out across the district and work with teachers throughout Carmel. “I love having visitors in the classroom to discuss what we are doing and what’s working, what isn’t. I think that this award will give me opportunities to do more collaboration with other teachers from across the district,” White said. Later this year, White will represent CCS in the state Teacher of the Year competition.

A well-orchestrated effort brings play to life at Civic By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com The Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre will open “Into the Woods,” on Friday, its final show of the season. Current went cover story behind the scenes with the show’s director, Robert Sobera, technical directory, Troy Trinkle and others to find out what goes into taking a show from the page to the stage.

Rapunzel’s long blonde wig sits in Civic’s costume shop, awaiting tweaks before the week’s rehearsals.

Getting to work

Civic decides its next seaSobera son before its current season is completed. This kind of planning is key for a theatre like the Civic, doing five large-scale productions each year. Full-scale preparations began for “Into the Woods” the second week of February, a month-long gap after the Trinkle Civic’s last production, “Fox and the Fairway,” allowing for a bit more prep than the group usually is allowed. Auditions were held in mid-February. After casting is completed, Civic’s costume designers can move forward with creating the show’s costumes, masks, makeup and more. “This is a huge production,” Trinkle said. “It’s a way to end the season on a high note.” After the season is finalized, Music Director Brent Marty coordinates orchestras for the entire season, working through an orchestra manager to schedule, budget and hire a talented pit of professional musicians for each of the season’s shows. “We are one of the full, large companies that will still hire a full pit orchestra, the only one in the area,” Marty said. While Civic uses volunteers for its cast and crew, Marty finds that a professional orchestra streamlines the preparation process and leads to a noticeably better end product.

Creating the world of the show

Set design is at the forefront of work to be done in nearly every production. Civic originally performed “Into the Woods” in the mid-90s at its former space in Indianapolis. The set designs by Rob Koharchik, originally used more than 15 years ago, were revamped to fit the Tarkington’s stage. More than 10 weeks ago, Trinkle and master carpenter Dan Strain started hand-crafting the sets. This process involved creating three standing portals of trees to create the show’s woods, the tallest of which is 27 feet. According to Trinkle, more than 100 sheets of material had to be cut just to create the patterns of these archways.

The cast takes part in the show’s first on-stage run-through a day after the set was loaded on stage. At this point, lighting, sound and costumes are still being created and tweaked. (Photos by Christian Sorrell)

“Everything we build is a prototype,” Sorbera said. As such, tweaks are constantly being made, even on a production using portions of former designs. A 20-foot turntable was refurbished from Civic’s initial production of “Into The Woods.” Placed at center stage, this revolving piece allows for a wide array of unique character movements and for the creation of a number of different scenes without doing a traditional scene change. Throughout the show, the turntable allows characters to run in place while creating the illusion of movement. According to Sorbera, it is these types of moments that audiences really love. “As an audience member, you like to be manipulated, to know there’s a design, a control and there’s a formula,” Sorbera said.

‘Into The Woods’

• What: In this fractured fairy tale, a baker and his wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door. They embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell – swindling, lying and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results in this classic Sondheim musical directed by Robert Sorbera. • When: Friday through May 11 - Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. (last Saturday at 5 p.m.) and Sundays at 2 p.m. • Where: Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre, 3 Center Green • More Info: Visit www.civictheatre.org or call 843-3800.

The final stretch

Last week was the beginning of “tech week,” the first week of Civic working on stage at the Tarkington in which the full sets are loaded in, lighting is implemented and sound effects are finalized. Before tech week, the cast practices at a rehearsal space in another area of the building while other companies occupy the stage. “(During tech week,) it really is amazing how different (the stage) looks from one night to the next,” Sorbera said. Tech week is when the volunteer crew begins its work, learning specific skills and familiarizing itself with the ins and outs of the production.

Civic hand-crafts all of its costumes in its costume shop in the Tarkington building.

Opening night and beyond

All this week, cast and crew will be taking part in dress rehearsals leading up to the show’s opening. Costumes will be finalized. Tweaks will be made to sets and props. Sound, lighting and more will be fully implemented during these final moments of preparation for the show’s threeweek run. Civic recently announced its 2013-2014 season, the theatre company’s 99th. With it comes five more shows scheduled to take place during the next year. Although the content may change each year, the group’s work and dedication to theater does not. With the wrap of “Into the Woods,” Trinkle, Sorbera and others will begin work on casting, sets and orchestra hiring for next season’s first show, “Pippin.” Other shows planned for the season are “The 1940’s Radio Hour,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Steel Magnolias,” and a Centennial Kick-Off surprise. For more information on “Into the Woods” and the Civic’s upcoming season, visit www.civictheatre.org.

Actress Nathalie Cruz prepares to put on her prosthetic mask for the first time at the beginning of tech week. As the Witch, Cruz will wear a full prosthetic face mask created by David Schlatter (pictured), a grey wig and full costume.

A mechanical track built into the set will pull a horse, carriage and four actors across the stage in a scene. A single crew member off stage will operate a hand-crank to pull the entirety of the carriage and the actors across the stage.

Growing tolerance It is our position that the Anne Frank Center USA Sapling Project serves as an important reminder of the need for tolerance. One of 11 saplings from the 170-year-old white horse chestnut tree that was Anne Frank’s only connection to nature during the two years her family hid from the Nazis during the German occupation of the Netherlands, was recently planted in the Anne Frank Peace Garden at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The sapling is a living monument to Anne’s pursuit of peace and tolerance, and at the same time will serve as a powerful reminder of the horrors caused by hate and bigotry and the need for collective action when humanity fails. As Anne wrote in her diary, “April is glorious, not too hot and not too cold, with occasional light showers. Our chestnut tree is in leaf, and here and there you can already see a few small blossoms.” May tolerance grow in tandem with Anne’s beautiful chestnut tree. Visit the Anne Frank Peace Garden and enjoy the blossoms in honor of Anne and those like her. And like those who made the Sapling Project possible, there is more good in the world than evil. For more information on the Sapling Project, go to www.childrensmuseum. org.

Is collusion the real threat? Commentary by Terry Anker There are scores of expressions to describe the disposition of government officials to take our money and use it like a venture fund manager. The current nomenclature calls it government entrepreneurship. One wonders if it is an assistant, barrier or competitor with a healthy free-market. Entrepreneurs do great things and change the world, but they also take breathtaking financial risks and routinely fail. The natural government monopoly boasts a gaggle of advantages outpacing even the most competitive private company. In a world where rapacious private businesses are attracted to easy money and public guarantees, shouldn’t government “assistance” be limited to the broadest possible private entrepreneur participation? When speculating on who can claim credit for entrepreneurial success, some would openly assert that the individual entrepreneur “didn’t do that.” Even if one assumes veracity in this supposition, would it likewise be accurate to claim

that government “didn’t do that either?” Indiana is in the black. In fact, the current governor is locked in some James T. Kirk like battle with an alien Republican legislature about the return of some of those tax dollars to those who were overcharged for the services. A balanced budget amendment prevents official largess being unchecked. Yet, we still set aside dollars to spawn home-grown high-tech companies. We build and maintain infrastructure. And, we directly support countless stadiums and billionaire sport team owners. The pressure to undertake ever more expensive and elaborate schemes from entrepreneurial government officials is intense but no more so than the rent-seeking tendencies of entrepreneurs inside the private sector. Is collusion between these two forces the real threat? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

You’re noticing something different about Current today, aren’t you? You found the paper on which the news and ads are printed to be a little brighter, right? You also noticed that the pages are “stitched” by two staples on the fold, meaning no more loose sheets, correct? You also detected that the paper is ever-soslightly shorter and narrower, we’re guessing. It all is owed to a decision we made to move our printing efforts to a new location. Cox Media Group of Franklin, Ohio, effective with this edition, handles the printing, inserting and packaging tasks for all Current products and the Carmel Business Leader, as well as titles produced by our “sister” company, Times-Leader Publications (The Southside Times, Hendricks County ICON, Center Grove ICON, and the Southside Business Leader and the Hendricks County Business Leader). We’re excited about the change, because we believe it will provide a better reading experience. We’re still printing on paper that contains post-consumer content, and we’re still using low-rub, soy-based ink, which we believe to be important. Our art director, Zach Ross, has made subtle changes to the appearance of the news report, including new typefaces, story identifiers and different ways to package the news. By virtue of his moving ads to the “outside” edges of the paper, he has created something of a news well, which will accommodate a changing news presentation. We hope you enjoy the improvements, and we invite your comments at info@youarecurrent. com. ••• We bade a sad farewell last week to our friend and landscape-business owner, Cliff Bivins, who died all too soon at age 44 on April 14 of respiratory complications. He served customers across northern suburban Indianapolis for a number of years. We were the beneficiaries of his lawn-and-garden expertise, but it was his wide, genuine smile and easy-going nature that we’ll miss the most. Sail on, Cliff.

Not sure I still want ‘it’

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Despite being a happily married, over-40, ginger from Kentucky, I can apparently still attract the men. Of course, that’s not nechumor essarily a good thing. One of my sisters and I decided to road trip to Atlanta for the NCAA basketball semi final game. You may recall my fateful trip to New Orleans last April which culminated in my screaming at Doo through tears, “I am not driving you home!” So this year we left husbands at home for some quality sister time. Louisville won the game, there was very little drama, and apart from never being able to locate the stupid ESPN Gameday set-up − where were you, Jay Bilas? − we had a marvelous time. What I didn’t anticipate, though, was how not having a man constantly at my side somehow equated to, “I’m single and looking for love.” And before you ask, yes, my wedding ring was on and no, I wasn’t dressed in brothel attire. Bachelor number one? A 50-something farmer from Wisconsin at the game. Sure he weighed a little more than 350 pounds and my seat kept catching his thigh fat every time I stood, but Jerry and I hit it off. Maybe too well, in fact. Even after I told him about my four children and brilliant husband, he continued to pay me compliments and insinuate that we should meet up. Luckily the thrill

of the victory carried me out of the arena before I had to address the issue. Sorry, Jerry! Next up, a college student from Michigan. As Sis and I exited the 100-level area of the dome, a very good-looking guy approached, flashed me a gorgeous smile, and said something about tickets. Huh? What? Yes! And when I handed it over, he went straight for the hug. I don’t even embrace friends, let alone strangers, and I know he just wanted my seat, but he had a dimple! No, wait. I have a son not much younger than him. Eeewwww. Mrs. Robinson? I don’t think so. Finally, a total dingbat who was only in town for the free concerts. When I went to the hotel bar later that night, El Ding launched into an abusive diatribe on how badly Michigan was going to beat Louisville in the championship. He obviously considered his little speech some kind of courtship ritual because as soon as my fries arrived and I turned to leave, he offered to buy me a drink. And not as an apology. No thanks, ya loser. I’d rather be with Jerry. So it seems I’ve still “got it.” Just not sure if I want it. Peace out.

Better off reading National Enquirer Editor, As a recent resident of Carmel, I have been impressed with your paper. While I may not agree with anyone’s opinion, Reader’s view I do appreciate a view which isn’t skewed with liberal dribble (i.e. AP). I was very disappointed that you published some querulous codger’s (David Meisenhelder) virulent verbiage. His assailable vulgarity labeling (Danielle Wilson’s) column as immature is followed by toxic tantrums. He is so lost in the sauce he doesn’t know a commentary is just that. One person’s view. He found fault with Mrs. Wilson’s article not being humorous when it wasn’t supposed to be. He admits not knowing her intention, but quickly

offers his malicious misperceptions. By butchering the language six ways from Sunday, he leads the reader with deceit. Mrs. Wilson did not name anyone, therefore did not humiliate anyone! Moreover, words cannot castigate anyone. Proper behavior (sportsmanship) is exactly why normal people enroll children in sports. His closing remarks seemingly cement his self-righteous discourse. While they only make one aware how many people he is infecting with such insidious insights. If the paper doesn’t publicly apologize for such smut as Meisenhelder’s vindictive response then we’re better off reading the National Enquirer. Per Scientiam Progredimur, Steve Kerr, 46033

We actually ‘prommed’ at prom Commentary by Mike Redmond

It is getting to be Prom Season, so naturally my mind turns to memories of my own prom, back during the Flintstonian Era, humor when the Lakeland High School gym was transformed into a magical wonderland and the evening lived up to its theme, “Disaster Under The Stars.” No, not really. I think the theme was “Moonlight and Magnolias” or something to do with the Antebellum Southern United States, which of course made absolutely no sense for kids living in Anabaptist Northern Indiana. I guess the prom committee had all seen “Gone With The Wind” before they voted. Good thing it wasn’t “Guadalcanal Diary.” Lakeland had been open something like eight years by the time my class’s prom came along, which means it was already mired in tradition, such as having the VersaTones, a three-piece band from Elkhart (drums, sax, accordion), back to provide the music, and some cheesy stage hypnotist to making certain of us crow like roosters or revert to our kindergarten selves. As you might have guessed, the faculty chose the entertainment because we students could not be trusted to come up with something tasteful. Of course they were right, but that’s beside the point. Another tradition was that we actually prommed. That is, at a certain point in the evening, a signal went out and we all lined up behind Mrs. Booth, the stern business teacher who chose the

band, and clomped a few laps around the gym floor while our parents looked on from the mezzanine. Most of our parents, I should say. My mother made it abundantly clear that she was not about to drive 12 miles into town to watch a bunch of kids walking in circles wearing rented clothes. Oh, yes, the clothes. This was the era of skyblue and Pepto-pink tuxedoes with lapels like car doors, Ricky Ricardo ruffled shirts, and bow ties the size of cecropia moths. Except for me. As befits a shy, conservative type such as myself, I chose a plain black formal suit. Compared to my pastel-hued classmates, I looked Amish. Wait. It was double-breasted. Make that Mennonite. The prom itself went along as they all did back then. Couples pulled up in gleaming washed and waxed family cars, walked through the same doors they walked through every school day, and made their way to the aforementioned gymnasium-slash-wonderland, a beauteous riot of crepe paper and balloons with only the faintest whiff of sweatsocks. There we waited in line while some sophomore announced each couple to a room full of people who couldn’t care less, all of us just having seen one another out in the hallway. Oh, the magic of it all.

Moose tracks in my lasagna Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Warning: There’s another case of food impropriety in the news. A popular frozen dinner option is being removed from ovens humor over in Scandinavia in another half-baked scandal. Families were waiting to feast on Moose Lasagna, but as the cheese was becoming bubbly and browned, food officials exposed that there was pork in some of these prepared selections. Everyone in Sweden is asking: What is pork doing in my lasagna? People in the U.S. are asking: What is moose doing in your lasagna? Jews in Sweden, all fourteen of them, were upset because the company revealed that the 17,000 portions sold contained 1-percent pork, which the company admitted meant the product was not 100-percent Kosher. Or as my rabbi would say, “Not Kosher.” The bottom line is that even though the manufacturer is pulling the pork-tainted casserole off the shelves, the entrée is still a favorite of many consumers. After all, who doesn’t like pulled pork? For the second time in two months, it’s the conglomerate IKEA that is responsible for this food fiasco. Wanting to be proactive in this debacle, the company set up an 800 number so customers could, in their words, “lodge a moose lasagna complaint.” Everyone thought this seemed like a good idea except the local Moose Lodge, where they got a lot of crank phone calls.

IKEA is basically a furniture company that also sells frozen food, a technique to expand sales like the U.S. Postal Service decision to sell safari hats and dorky shorts so you can look like your letter carrier. IKEA has had a history of mislabeling products, once advertising futons as beds, a ruse that almost worked until people got them home and tried to sleep on them. The details of the porcine-laced lasagna were first revealed by the Swedish newspaper Dagbkadet. Coincidentally, dagbkadet is exactly what a Kentucky farmer says if he finds not moose, but a mouse, in his lasagna. One French newspaper scared the beejeebers out of their readers when they inadvertently mistranslated the story and Parisian diners thought there was meat in their mousse. Even hairstylists got the facts wrong and thought there was pork in their styling products. IKEA is not sure how to win back its customers after so many have suffered this unjust ingestion. PR experts found a snappy slogan they will use to promote the product to ensure people know the issue has been addressed. “You’ve got game!”

Four ladies who seem to have nothing in common (from left), a Professional Woman (Tiffanie Bridges), a Soap Star (Rebecca Fisher), an Earth Mother (Dee Etta Rowe), and an Iowa Housewife (Judy Bridgewater) meet at Bloomingales in New York City and form a sisterhood as they relate to each other’s challenge with “the change” in Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre’s production of Menopause, The Musical. (Submitted photos)

Menopause: A celebration of ‘the change’

By Patricia Rettig • news@currentincarmel.com

The 40th Anniversary Season heats up in a flash as “Menopause, The Musical” makes its debut at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Rd., Indianapolis. This hilarious and fun celebration of women and “the change” is live on stage now through May 12. Written by Jeanie Linders, “Menopause, The Musical” is set in a department store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. The all-female cast makes fun of their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between these diverse women in this uplifting production that includes parodies from the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s. It culminates with a salute to women who are experiencing “the change.” Beef & Boards’ production features Indianapolis residents Judy Bridgewater and Tiffanie Bridges. Bridgewater is a native Hoosier who owned the Young Artists Studio of Performing Arts for more than 30 years and currently teaches private voice lessons at Lawrence Central High School. Bridges has lived in Indianapolis for 14 years and has performed in productions of “Menopause, The Musical” for eight years in nearly 40 cities. Joining these ladies are Dee Etta Rowe (last seen at Beef & Boards in the 2008 production of “The Sound of Music”) and Rebecca Fisher, who is making her Beef & Boards debut.

Tasters go beyond simply drinking Commentary by Ron Hopwood

Descriptors allow a wine “taster” to relate the aromas and flavors of a wine to determine its overall quality. Tasters, compared to WINE the average wine drinker, attempt to give an objective description (often taking a systematic approach) to what they are drinking where casual enthusiasts simply appreciate the wine but halt their examination there. The primary source of a person’s ability to taste wine comes from their sense of smell. But their personal experiences also play a role in conceptualizing what they are tasting and in attaching a description to that perception. For example, next time you are out with friends, use the description, “she is sassy” for a wine that is bold and brash in flavors. Here are some other terms you might find tasters bringing to the table: • Aromatic – descriptive term for wines of a markedly flowery, spicy or grapy character • Beefy – red wines meaning solid, chunky, four-square • Chewy – wine with a lot of tannin and strong flavor • Clean – wine with no bacterial or chemical flaws and a simple, direct flavor • Deep – full-flavored reds and whites, often applied to wines still not at their peak • Earthy– a slight root vegetable, muddy flavor, not usually complimentary, except for

wines made from Cabernet Franc • Fat – a heavy, sometimes slightly clumsy wine, though if made from ripe grapes it can imply a rather unctuous richness in the wine, sweet or dry • Freshness – youthful aromas, usually associating good acidity with floral or fruit flavors • Fullness – the feel, or weight, of a wine in the mouth • Green – unripe or tart, not necessarily an unattractive taste in the wine • Hard – usually applied to reds which have an excess of tannin • Length – wines flavors continue to evolve in the mouth, even after swallowing • Nutty – usually for dry white wines with a hazelnut flavor • Plummy – big, round, ripe reds • Smoky – flavor from slightly charred oak barrels that have been used in maturation • Spicy – exotic fruit and spice flavors such as peppery • Steely – quality whites for their metallic flavor • Stony – implying a dull, empty dryness Ron Hopwood is a local winemaker and owner of Hopwood Cellars Winery in downtown Zionsville.

Artists announced for open house By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com

About 70 artists, six of them from Hamilton County, will open their Exhibition studios to visitors during the two-day, 20th annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House Friday and Saturday. Fishers residents Bruce Moore and Sally Moore will participate in the event, which is designed to give patrons the chance to see artwork in the setting where it’s created. The married duo shares a 900-square-foot studio (B-345) at the Stutz. They met when Sally was directing her own gallery on Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis, and Bruce inquired about whether she wanted to see his work. Bruce uses water colors or water media and creates his works on a 100-percent polypropylene material called Yupo. Sally is a trained jeweler who uses sterling and 14 ct. gold precious metals, as well as exotic stones, for her designs. She said some of the hand-picked gems never before shown will go on display at the show,

Thursday – Woomblies Friday – Zanna Doo Saturday – Good Seed Three Ds’ Pub and Café – 13644 N. Meridian St., Carmel – www.threedspubandcafe.com

and Bruce will have two abstract series on display at the open house. Another of Bruce’s works went on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art on Sunday. “The open house has become one of the city’s rites of spring,” said Tom Potter, a photographer and co-chair of the 2013 open house. “This year, there’s an even more diverse mix of studios and art to see than ever.” Other Hamilton County artists displaying at the open house are Wendy Franklin and Laura LaForge, both of Carmel, Katie Clayton of Noblesville and Mallory Marty, also of Fishers. Artwork ranges from paintings, drawings and photography, to sculpture, jewelry and furniture. The event also offers a rare chance to see vintage cars on display in the historic Stutz car factory. The event is from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. Friday and 2 to 7 p.m. Saturday at 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis.

Healthy from age 8 to 18

Commentary by Coach Kim Rockey

Wow – we as a society surely have dropped the ball on the age 8 to 18 population when it comes wellness to proper functional fitness and athletic development. Much of the blame can be directed to the systematic removal of physical education in the public schools. Due to budget cuts, our kids are less exposed to proper training when it comes to physical fitness. Instead, we are relying more on a growing segment of volunteers as a group to coach our youth in a variety of sports. Hats off to the volunteers for their time and dedication to the kids. However this coaching group is leaving a large gap in applying proven modalities of functional fitness to help promote proper alignment, movement, stretching, etc. Injury in this age range has skyrocketed in the past 10 to 15 years. Not proactively addressing the childhood obesity epidemic has complicated this issue further. The result: kids are having more significant injuries that have long-term consequences. I will note, however, that there is a bit of a socioeconomic factor built into this equation. Those families that can afford proper training outside the traditional aca-

demic setting will have an advantage for their children. Addressing the issue on a broad scale, let’s focus on: • Proper progressions for developing, age-sensitive bodies • Good fundamental biomechanical movements need to be taught from the very beginning to instill sounds habits of good form • Cross-training/cross-sport/free play – all these elements are equally important for physical as well as social development Going forward, we should aim at the following goals for these age groups: • 8- to 12-year-olds – zero in on specific athletic development skills such as basic functional movement and coordination • 12- to 16-year-olds – introduce weight training with specific protocols • 16- to 18-year olds – mentor them to take physical fitness to the next level Kim Rockey is a trainer, health and wellness instructor, and owner at Indy Core Wellness & Fitness.

Treating skin pigment problems Commentary by Brooke Tetrault Treating pigment-related skin conditions like sun spots can actually be one of the most dramatic improvements DERMATOLOGY in the overall tone and youthfulness of skin. Skin cells called melanocytes produce pigment called melanin, which is the source of skin’s color and a key component of defense against UV exposure. This pigment production can also be the result of exposure to heat and hormonal shifts. When melanocytes no longer respond to the normal rules of growth and melanin production, perhaps from repeated UV damage, they can result in malignancy. It is important to consult with a physician to rule out any suspicion for abnormal lesions, such as melanoma, before undergoing any cosmetic treatment. A yearly dermatologic skin check and proper sunscreen is always recommended. Always be careful if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. For benign, unwanted pigment concerns, one can be fairly aggressive with laser treatments. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), a flashlamp device, is probably the most popular procedure used for the treatment of pigment. It involves targeting and breaking down the melanin pigment in the

DISPATCHES Spinal health walk – Indiana Spine Group is hosting the We’ve Got Your Back Race & Health Fair, an inaugural 5K, 1-mile fun run/walk and health fair on Saturday. The race steps off at 9 a.m. at 13225 N. Meridian St., Carmel, and the run/walk follows. Event proceeds will support the Spinal Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving spinal health care through research, education and patient advocacy. The event will also celebrate the achievements of patients who have overcome debilitating neck or back pain to regain their lives, such as honorary event chair Capt.

skin. Patients experience initial darkening of the pigment, which is then naturally exfoliated – or helped along greatly with medical-grade topical skin care during the course of the subsequent days. Medical-grade topical skin care can involve hydroquinone. Less effective treatments like soy-based and lower strength products overthe-counter are mostly recommended for maintenance at best. Hydroquinone has more than 30 years of use in skin care. It can also be misleadingly known as “bleaching” cream, but only inhibits the production of extra melanin. It is a substance that directly inhibits the key enzyme responsible for the final step of melanin (pigment) production, unlike less effective overthe-counter products. In prescription strength, medical-grade quality, over a limited body surface area and under the care of a physician, it is safe. There are so many ways to help treat unwanted skin pigment, and it is always best to seek the recommendation of your skin care physician for dramatic results.

Crib bumper pads exchanged for sleep sacks – Each year, about 2,300 infants die from sudden infant death syndrome. To help families practice safe sleep habits, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent, St.Vincent Women’s Services and The Children’s Museum have joined forces to exchange crib bumper pads for a free sleep sack. From now through April 30, infant caregivers may bring crib bumper pads to the concierge desk at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, 3000 N. Meridian St., to trade for a free sleep sack, courtesy of St.Vincent. The bumper pads will be given to a local organization to recycle. While researchers are not sure what causes SIDS, soft bedding is a known risk factor.

No laughing matter – It took almost 100 years for people to figure out that nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, could be used as an anesthetic. A dentist made the realization it could be used in medical practices in 1844, but a botched tooth-pulling led to his disgrace. The dentist, Horace Wells, committed suicide before he was recognized for figuring it out. – www.theweek.com

City sees a decrease in home sales By Jim Litten • news@currentzionsville.com

With more than 2,500 pending sales in March in Central Indiana, overall year-to-date home sales are up 13.1 percent Real Estate compared to this time last year, according to statistics compiled by F.C. Tucker Co. On a monthly basis, March 2013 home sales rose 1.2 percent over March 2012, an increase of 30 homes sold in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. Five of the nine counties reported increased sales compared to March 2012. Hamilton County is one of the areas that experienced an upswing. Last month, 557 homes sold in Hamilton County, which is an increase of 1.3 percent compared to March of last year. But even within the county, the housing market recovery varies from city to city. • In Carmel last month, 143 homes pended, which is a decrease of 13 homes compared to March of last year. • Home prices in Carmel fell slightly last month.

The average sales price was $285,047 – a decrease of 7.1 percent compared to March 2012. • Homes in Hamilton County aren’t staying on the market quite as long last year. Last month, homes spent an average of 92 days on the market, but last year they spent roughly 111 days on the market. • Homebuyers are likely noticing fewer available homes. In March 2013, there were 520 homes for sale in Carmel, a decrease of 26.6 percent compared to March 2012. • Of the pended home sales in Carmel last month, 16 were priced $500,000 to $999,999; 53 were priced $300,000 to $499,999; 43 were priced $200,000 to $299,999; 27 were priced $100,000 to $199,999; and four were priced at $99,999 or less. Overall, the first quarter of the year is off to a strong start, though results vary across the region. Continued increases in home sales and home prices, and decreases in inventory are positive signs that the Central Indiana real estate recovery is still on solid ground.

Enzymes are good for more than digestion Commentary by John Mikesell Enzymes can be used for healing body tissues, not just for digestion. Enzymes given with food are used for digestion, Pets but certain enzymes (proteases, which break down proteins) can also help with inflammation, pain, recovery from injury and more when given apart from food. Systemic enzyme therapy, also called metabolic or proteolytic enzyme therapy, allows enzymes to enter the body where they can be used for healing rather than digestion. Examples of proteolytic enzymes include pancreatin, trypsin, and chymotrypsin (from the pancreas); bromelain (from pineapple); and papain (from papaya). Proteolytic enzymes work best for inflammation when given away from meals and combined with a bioflavonoid such as quercetin or rutin (rutosid). What are the benefits of such a regime? Systemic enzyme therapy is theorized to work by breaking down proteins in the blood that cause inflammation, and by removing fibrin, which pro-

longs inflammation. Proponents say that systemic enzyme therapy promotes health in every part of the body by reducing pain and inflammation, speeding healing, supporting a healthy immune system, shrinking tumors and preventing metastasis from cancer. Enzyme therapy may also help to prevent soreness and injury during and after exercise when taken routinely. Studies in the U.S. are limited, but systemic enzyme therapy has been studied and used in Germany for decades. But there are cautions: Proteolytic enzymes can thin blood and increase the risk of bleeding, especially at higher doses. Do not give to dogs with clotting disorders, gastric ulcers or those receiving blood-thinning medications. If anemia or signs of bleeding develop, discontinue right away. High doses also may cause diarrhea. See your health professional for more information on these products.

A GIRL’S GUIDE TO PROM DRESSES Strapless This is a perfect style to choose if you’re looking to show off arms and shoulders. Add a simple clutch to maintain ladylike elegance. Short Show off some leg in a prom-perfect mini! Look for this style in a fun sequin fabric to really spice things up!

THE OVERSIZED TOP KNOT The top knot has gotten super-sized! Go for a big ballerina bun when you really want to make a statement. Start by creating a tight pony at the crown of your head, and back comb it into a wild mess. Then, tame it with a paddle brush as you work it into your desired shape. For the most dramatic look, make sure the height of the updo aligns with your chin.

One-Shoulder The one shoulder silhouette is a great alternative to strapless and it looks great with hair up or down. Pair it with a skinny belt and a simple bag and pumps. Open Back Choose an open back style for an unexpected dose of glamour. Pair this style with a simple up-do. Long Sleeves Long sleeves are a great way to balance out a short dress. This style looks great in a bold color. Full Skirt The classic look of a full skirt is definitely a great go-to for prom. Keep your hair and accessories simple and let the dress speak for itself.

Mother Nature gives us a break

Commentary by Randy Sorrell

Let these modest words be the inspiration you may require to finally get the “spring cleaning” accomplished in the landoutdoors scape beds. Fortunately Mother Nature has provided a little grace this year with cloudy, cooler temperatures and later bloom cycles. The ornamental grasses have yet to green up, which means we still have a little time to dirty our fingernails. First, I like to start with cleaning the gutters so resulting debris is removed before mulching. Then, go for any larger debris that has likely accumulated in the beds. Second, focus on severely pruning overgrown shrubs that need fit back into the landscape using heavy loppers or long blade pruners. Reblooming roses, spirea, viburnum, potentilla and forsythia are ideal candidates for this rejuvenation and often behave like vigorous new shrubs filled with enthusiasm. Cut ornamental grasses back to the ground with electrical or gas powered hedge trimmers and snip back last year’s perennials with hand pruners. Third, it’s amazing what a freshly cut edge on landscape beds can do for crisp appearance. A sharp, straight edged spade is required for this heart-pounding task. Then complete a detailed cleaning of the beds. Finally, the fun begins. Carefully apply the appropriate fertilizer (all purpose 12.12.12 with

Sleek now trumps fussy

Fine Lines, INC

Hair & Nail Salon

Commentary by Vicky Earley

Sleek window treatments are winning the popular vote. Heavy jabots and swags are on hold while the cleaner lines Decorating of panels take center stage. Sleek should not be confused with plain and boring. Just as Jacqueline Onassis could dress capris and a crisp white blouse with pearls, the svelte panels of 2013 can be embellished with understatement. Solid silks and linens are ideal for today’s transitional look. Puddling provides a softer look for spaces that lean toward tradition while a hem that barely kisses the floor is more appropriate for a stark modern look. Geometric patterns such as Greek key and chevron in a woven textile is ideal as a focal point in a space. Cleaner lines are a bit less forgiving so appropriate lining is critical. Interlining, the fleece layer between the lining and the fabric is a hallmark of quality workmanship. It provides the quiet richness that is absent with just a layer of lining. The pleats of the straight lined beauties are a critical feature as they stand out sans the swags and jabots. An inverted box pleat or a goblet pleat

are gorgeous compliments. Long and loose pencil pleats are a relaxed yet sophisticated look …. especially when the room features high ceilings. For a more glamorous finish, the pleats can be embellished with a rhinestone button or broach. Trim that follows the inside edge or contrast tape that dresses the panels, add just enough style to keep the window treatments interesting. Grommets provide a casual yet stylish look but require a good deal of dressing if the panels are functional. For additional interest in the au currant style of window dressing, horizontal banding or color blocking is a strong choice. Cuffs that follow the inside edge of a panel is an engaging option, as well. Layering is a guaranteed “wow” when the panels frame roman shades or textured blinds. Typically, you won’t find a rich custom look from pre-made drapery. If that is your only budgetary recourse, make sure the length works! Actually, bare windows are a better option than drapery that hangs four or five inches from the floor. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in Carmel.

Jack-and-Jill can stop squabbles Commentary by David Decker

As anyone who grew up with siblings can attest, having multiple children share a bathroom can create a difficult situation. indoors Most mornings it seems like everyone needs to use the bathroom at the exact same time, leading to squabbles, hassles and running late. If you are looking for a new solution, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom may be the perfect addition to your home. “Jack-and-Jill” refers to a shared bathroom that is connected by two separate bedrooms. Sitcom fans may remember that all six Brady Bunch kids shared a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. If it worked for them, it can certainly work for your family. Let’s take a look at a few ways to design a Jack-and-Jill bathroom that your kids will love. Privacy is the main benefit of a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The best Jack-and-Jill designs feature a layout that separates the various areas of the bathroom, like the shower and sink areas. That way, one child can be taking a shower while another brushes his teeth without having to compromise any privacy. Jack-and-Jill bathrooms usually feature separated amenities that allow each child to have their own space in the bathroom. So, you may want to install two sinks, two mirrors, two linen closets and two cabinets if space allows. Doubling up helps cut down on crowding and makes it easier to share the space. Cabinet storage can

also help you keep things organized and running smoothly in a frequently used bathroom. Ample storage will cut down on clutter and ensure that each sibling knows where his or her toiletries are located. Kids have a knack for making watery messes in the bathroom. So you’ll probably want to select bathroom flooring that’s equipped to handle spills. Ceramic or porcelain tiles are always a good bet accompanied by a tile baseboard for easy clean up. Once you’ve decided on the layout and flooring, you can start planning the fun design aspects of the bathroom. For a kid’s bathroom, you’ll probably want to plan for versatility. Choose neutral, durable plumbing fixtures and cabinetry designs that can match any design scheme. From there, you can create a fun design backdrop that can be changed once the kids outgrow it. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring. They are based in Carmel (575-9540, www.the-affordablecompanies.com). E-mail home improvement questions to david.decker@the-affordablecompanies.com.
