Work begins on $6M retail complex By Robert Annis • The next phase of Carmel’s City Center came a step closer to reality last Wednesday. Officials from the city and development Anderson Birkla broke ground on a $6-million retail and office complex nicknamed The Mezz. The new facility, housing 44 luxury apartments and Anderson Birkla’s corporate headquarters, will be on both the east and west end of the Tarkington Theater building. Mayor Jim Brainard said work will begin within the next week, with completion tentatively scheduled for 12 to 15 months later. This may be the start of a major building boom in the area; Brainard anticipates four other nearby multi-story buildings – a mix of residential, office and retail – will start construction this year. “We’re working on a lot of big things right now,” Brainard said. “With the success of City Center, there’s been a lot of interest from businesses. They realize they only have one opportunity to get in (at the early stages).” In addition to the apartments, the 25,000-square-


foot, five-story Mezz East building, overlooking the Monon Trail, will include a fitness studio, secure bike storage and an internet café, according to a press release from city spokeswoman Nancy Heck. Anderson Birkla’s headquarters will be in the 40,000-square-foot west building, along with additional apartments. City Center has long been Brainard’s vision of Carmel’s future, one that he talked up during his first mayoral campaign in 1996. The city spent $13 million to purchase the 88 acres, relying on a sometimes complex series of public-private partnerships to raise the projects from the ground. The grand, $200-million mixed-use facility built by Pedcor has been successful since it opened three years ago, with a nearly 100-percent occupancy rate in the apartments, and BikeLine, Matt the Miller’s Tavern, and Hubbard & Cravens occupying prime retail real estate. In her press release, Heck said Anderson Birkla will pay $700,000 for the land in installments within the next six years, along with more than $112,000 annually in property taxes. Rents for the apartment will be comparable to the Pedcor building, starting at around $1.30 per square foot a month.

Aim higher

Spirituality columnist Bob Walters understands there are diverse social and political views, but doesn’t understand why so many folks consistently resist the Bible’s authority but persistently insist on quoting from it. “That’s never a good idea, and there is a lot of that going around,” he writes.

Andy Ray wonders, “Should a governor and state legislators try to help those who regularly fund their campaigns (i.e. the Herb Simons of the world), or should they try to help those who cannot fund anything, let alone a political campaign? Here in Indiana, we got what we voted for. One of these days, I hope we aim a little higher.”

Service recognizes fallen officers

By Heejung Kim •

Fallen police officers from Hamilton and Boone counties were honored during the 32nd Annual Hamilton County Law Enforcein memory ment Memorial Service at Carmel Civic Square on May 2. “It’s grown over the years. It was just the Carmel Police Dept., and then county, and then we had federal representatives here from the specialized police forces. It’s almost become a regional ceremony,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said. The event, which was open to the public, included a speech from keynote speaker Spencer Moore. Moore’s son, David Moore, died in the line of duty in January 2011. “We can’t forget our survivors, and we can’t forget our heroes. They come together, because one is the loved one of the other. We owe them. We honor them,” Moore said. “Truthfully, the best honor is like Sen. (Dan) Coats said, and like I underscored, is the remembering of them. As long as we remember them, they’ll never be forgotten, and their death will never been in vain.” Participants in this year’s memorial included Carmel Police Chief Tim Green, Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt, Westfield Police Chief Joel Rush and Lt. John Smithers of the Indiana State Police. Elementary school choirs from College Wood, Mohawk Trails and Towne Meadow opened the

Prostitution arrests not surprising By Liz Schrader • Carmel-based hair stylist Gina Dattilo knew there was something odd about Dove Spa in Carmel. Datillo, who works at A.C. & crime Co. Hair Designers next door to the spa, said some of the things she saw while working “just didn’t seem right.” “If I worked late, it was only men that always went in there, and the lights were kind of dark. I just thought that it was kind of strange,” Datillo said. Area police confirmed her suspicions by raiding both the Dove Spa in Carmel and Beijing Spa in Zionsville on May 1 because investigators believed the spas had been operating as prostitution houses for close to a year. One man and five women face prostitution charges as a result of the raid. A worker at Hearing Solutions Plus in Zionsville, located next to Beijing Spa, said it was obvious something was going on. He said he saw only men going in and out and estimated about two men per hour entered the small white building. The worker asked not to be identified. Stylist Gina Datillo said that she’s glad the spa was shut down and doesn’t think it will affect her business. “They’ve been in business about three to four years, and I think they were pretty slick for a while. It makes me wonder if there was a much bigger problem than what we saw on the outside, like human trafficking,” she said.

Even on May 5, two days after Dove Spa had been shut down, The Current witnessed two men attempt to go into the spa within a halfhour time frame. A Hamilton/Boone County Drug Task Force, along with several area police agencies, participated in the investigation which began in August 2012 after investigators received anonymous tips of possible sexual activity inside. Police announced the results of the investigation at a news conference last week. Fishers resident, Lu Wang, 50, is accused of running a prostitution ring through Dove and Beijing spas, and faces charges of promoting prostitution. “The significance of this case is we were able to get to the top of the person that was actually writing the checks, the person actually controlling the business,” said Major Aaron Dietz, commander of the Hamilton/Boone County Drug Task Force. Five women who worked at both spas were arrested including Jinna Luan, 52, for promoting prostitution; Hui Xiao, 40, Min Yu, 43, and Toby Hou, 23, for prostitution and Aiqin Yu, 40, on two counts of prostitution. All women live in Carmel except Min Yu, who lives in Fishers, and Aiqin Yu, who lives in Zionsville. Yajie Liu, 55, of Carmel has been charged with prostitution and was still at large at publication time. After searching both businesses and three homes leased by Wang and Laun, two cars and $250,000, including $210,000 in cash were seized.

Your weight loss journey starts here.

A Call To L.I.F.E. puts you on a path to losing weight and staying healthy. If you struggle with your weight and want to get on the path to better health, now’s the time. But with all the diet and exercise options out there, it can be overwhelming when trying to make the right choices for your lifestyle. At St.Vincent, we realize everyone is different, and that losing weight successfully is a unique process for each individual. That’s why St.Vincent developed A Call To L.I.F.E. (A Lifetime of Individual Fitness and Eating). A Call To L.I.F.E. is a personalized program that helps people lose weight through lifestyle modifications and long-term weight management. The goal of the program is not rapid weight loss—instead, it equips people with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve and maintain a healthy weight for a lifetime. “A Call To L.I.F.E. takes an holistic approach toward weight loss,” said Dr. Lori Hurst, director of the A Call To L.I.F.E. program at St. Vincent Carmel Hospital. Dr. Hurst graduated from the Indiana University School of Medicine in 2002, and completed her family medicine residency at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, Indiana. She has facilitated



successful weight management workshops since 2007. “We don’t just stick to a standard plan for our participants.” Dr. Hurst said. “We tailor the program to their body, their needs and their goals.” Participants in A Call To L.I.F.E. will meet with qualified health professionals over the course of 20 visits during a seven-month period. These health professionals include a doctor, a dietician, a psychologist and a physiologist. The first 10 weekly sessions include weigh-ins, labs and counseling. The next 10 bi-weekly sessions are designed to help you transition to greater personal accountability. “Our results with the A Call To L.I.F.E. program have been excellent,” said Dr. Hurst. “Patients who complete the program have averaged an 12 percent loss of body weight after seven months, which is higher than the national average for medical weight loss programs.” If you’re serious about setting weight loss goals, making long-term positive lifestyle changes and losing excess body weight for good, A Call To L.I.F.E. might be the right program for you. For more information about how you can become a part of A Call To L.I.F.E., call 317-582-8030 or visit

Health and Healing Series Wednesday, June 19, 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Presenter: Ken Stumpf, DPM PrimeLife Enrichment, Inc., 1078 3rd Ave. Southwest, Carmel Dr. Stumpf will discuss the importance of healthy feet and ways that you can ensure optimal long-term foot health. To register for this series, call 317-338-CARE (2273).

I had a lot of questions. And St.Vincent had all the answers. More than 16,000 people have found the answers to their questions at the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence. And — as our program continues to grow — we still offer every single patient ongoing support before and after their surgery. Get the answers to your questions about bariatric weight loss surgery by attending a free seminar.

Weight loss seminars are held throughout Indiana, including 11 each week at St.Vincent Carmel Hospital. Call 1-877-831-1582 or visit to find a time and location that’s convenient for you.

Cycling regulations discussed

By Robert Annis •

Carmel drivers will have to give a wider berth to cyclists if a proposed new ordinance is passed. laws The city council is considering a 3-foot passing rule as part of a new ordinance that proponents say could make traveling on two wheels much safer in the city, particularly on the Monon Greenway. Indianapolis already has a similar passing rule, as do many other cities and states across the nation. Among the other requirements, cyclists cannot ride more than two abreast on the Monon or any other trail, cyclists cannot pass vehicles stopped at an intersection unless they are in a designated bicycle lane, and motorists cannot turn in front of a cyclist if it may cause a collision or impede the rider’s forward progress. Pet owners on the greenways aren’t exempt from the new regulations either; also included is a provision banning retractable leashes or leashes longer than 6 feet. The first infraction would bring a $100 fine plus court costs. Additional violations would be $250 plus costs. A copy of the proposed ordinance can be found at showdocument.aspx?documentid=3454, starting on page 84.

Attempts to reach Nancy Tibbett, executive director of the advocacy group Bicycle Indiana, were unsuccessful. Last week, Hamilton County Sheriff Mark Bowen said his department would begin ticketing cyclists disobeying existing traffic laws. Motorists and cyclists on the northwest side of the county have been at odds for some time. Councilor Ron Carter, the ordinance’s sponsor and an avid cyclist, says an education period would be needed before any changes go into effect. Local cyclist Oran Sands seemed generally pleased with the new regulations, although he would suggest a few tweaks. “I will say that it needs to be couched as trail behaviors, not just cycling behaviors, because there’s a need for regulation or at least reminders on everyone’s behavior on the trail,” Sands said. “Pedestrians are often clueless or tuned out and have no situational awareness. Cyclists are often trying too hard to get somewhere when the mix of traffic on the trail dictates to do otherwise. … Many of the proposed regulations are actually re-statements of existing laws and rules. A bit of language changed (here and there), and it’s not a bad set of rules.” The Council’s parks committee will meet Tuesday night in the Caucus Room at City Hall to discuss the ordinance further.

Ivy Tech campus coming to county By Robert Herrington •

jobs, it will also bring commuters to the area. “It could serve as many as 4,600 students expanding up to 10,000 in the future. How much gas will they buy? How much will the restaurants benefits?” he asked. “How many companies might consider Hamilton County due to Ivy Tech’s skilled training classes?” Hamilton County was selected as a location Ivy Tech wanted to house a campus due to its growing population. Since 2007-2008, Ivy Tech has seen an increase of 98 percent, or nearly 5,000 students, from Hamilton County. Currently, 70 percent of courses those students take are outside of the county. A new location provides residents easier access to college credits, technical certifications and associate degrees.

On May 7, 4,188 voters in Noblesville spoke on behalf of the community and impacted not only Noblesville’s plans for referendum the future but Hamilton County’s as well. With the passing of Noblesville Schools’ special referendum (2,868 yes votes to 1,320 no votes), citizens approved the $28-million project that calls for the selling of Noblesville East Middle School, 300 N. 17th St., to Hamilton County, which will lease the building to Ivy Tech for $1. The county will pay Noblesville Schools $13.4 million for NEMS and the City of Noblesville will contribute $6.1 million ($5 million to assist Ivy Tech in renovations and $1.1 million to Noblesville Schools). Within the newly adopted budget, the state will also provide millions for renovations. “It’s the most exciting thing to happen to Noblesville and the most exciting thing to happen to Hamilton County,” Hamilton County Commissioner Steve Dillinger said. Dillinger said the biggest asset of the deal was bringing a higher education campus here. “Counties all over the state are trying to get Ivy Tech,” he said. “They want to come here desperately.” The move also has several economic benefits for Hamilton County. Dillinger said a full-service Ivy Tech campus could employ as many as 50 full-time staff and faculty. In addition to bringing


Hamilton County will issue an $11.9-million bond for 20 years. This equates to $920,000 in debt service per year or $0.0053 tax rate impact based on the 2012 assessed value. For a $100,000 home, this is a projected tax rate increase of $1.74; $5.18 for a $200,000 home; and $8.63 for a $300,000 home. However, this tax rate is based on a 4.5-percent interest rate and current market trends project that amount to be closer to 3.5 percent or possibly lower. The projected amounts are also based on this year’s assessed value and include no growth.

Army band takes Prairie stage

By Karen Kennedy •

In the mood for some rousing live music this weekend? Take the grandparents, the kids, a blanket and your American pride concert and head to Conner Prairie Interactive History Park on May 18. The 38th Infantry Division Army Band will take the stage at 4 p.m. for a concert featuring a wide variety of music, from the “Star Spangled Banner” to classic rock. The 38th Infantry Division Band is the only military band in the state of Indiana and is headquartered in Indianapolis. Of nearly 45 members, six of them are Hamilton County residents, according to Sgt. 1st Class Cynthia Hogwood, who is one of the co-managers of the band. “Two of our members, Sgts. Rod and Cara Pittenger, who live in Fishers, actually met in the band, got married and just welcomed a baby girl!” Hogwood said. They play trumpet and percussion, respectively. Other Hamilton County residents in the band include: Band co-manager Staff Sgt. Angela Seeley (Fishers; trombone) Sgt. Jilliane Pruiett (Carmel; clarinet) Spc. Alan Mbathi (Noblesville; bass guitar) and Spc. James Marshall (Noblesville; drums.) It’s a common misperception that military bands only play patriotic music. While that’s the foundation of the concert band, there are also several subsections of the band that specialize in other music genres so there’s sure to

be a style that everyone enjoys, according to Hogwood. This will be the first time the 38th Infantry Band will play at Conner Prairie. The concert is perfectly timed as May 18 is Armed Forces Day, and it will follow a Civil War reenactment in the Park in the afternoon. “We’re hoping we can bring the Confederates and the Yankees together with some music,” Hogwood jokingly said. This is a diverse group of highly talented musicians who serve in other ways as well. The band will be marching in the Fishers Freedom Festival Parade on June 30, and the jazz band will perform on Aug. 25 at Seminary Park in Noblesville. The gates to the lot east of the stage will open at 3:30 p.m., and the concert starts at 4 p.m. Admission is free.

If the bar isn’t able to offer outdoor events, it might be forced to leave the Arts & Design District behind By Robert Annis •

Detour co-owner Jeremiah Hamman wants to use 2nd Avenue NW.

The owners of Detour: An American Grill say they may consider closing the business if Carmel does not allow them to host outdoor events, but Mayor James Brainard is refusing to back down, saying the city “won’t be cover story blackmailed by a business.” The city, at a recent Board of Public Works meeting, denied Detour’s request to close 2nd Avenue NW for two outdoor events, citing numerous noise complaints from 2012. “We would never have invested so much money (into Detour) if we knew this was going to happen,” said Detour co-owner Jeremiah Hamman, who also owns the Mo’s – A Place for Steaks in Clay Terrace. “We moved here to be next to the Monon and take advantage of the location. We were Brainard asked here to help revitalize the Arts & Design District, but now … they don’t want to work with us.” The loss of the popular bar and eatery would be yet another blow to the Arts & Design District, which continues to have issues attracting businesses, and to nearby Sophia Square, which has an even greater commercial vacancy rate than the rest of the district. Noise complaints dogged the 2-year-old bar much of last year, resulting in several tickets from the Carmel Police Dept. Three citations are going through the Carmel City Court. A status conference was slated for this week. Brainard cited those noise complaints as the reason why Detour’s requests for the events – a May 4 Cinco de Mayo party and a May 18 Pole Day Party hosted by IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani and his Bryan Herta Autosports Team – was unanimously denied at the meeting earlier this month. Detour requested that the block of 2nd Avenue NW adjacent to the bar be closed, allowing more people to attend and, in the case of the latter event, for the racecars to be displayed. According to Brainard, Carmel police were dispatched to Detour 34 times in 2012, with half of those for noise complaints. Other bars and restaurants in the Arts & Design District received three noise complaints total. In addition, the administration said it has received numerous calls and emails complaining about the venue. “Given that record, we’re not going to continue the problem,” Brainard said at the meeting. Detour co-owner Fred Knipscheer and attorney David Barker were at the meeting, but weren’t asked to speak. They thought they’d reached an understanding with the city beforehand and were taken aback when the board voted against their proposals.

“Brainard refused to even look in our direction,” Knipscheer said. “We had the rug pulled out from under us.” The problems with the city began at Detour’s first Cinco de Mayo party last year. The owners anticipated a crowd of 500 people; more than 2,000 showed up. “We didn’t do a good job in a lot of ways that time,” Hamman said. Detour didn’t have enough security working and the neighboring area was left a mess in the aftermath of the event. Hamman admits the bar has had some issues, but said they’re trying to do better. Two managers were let go last year after failing to get the noise problem under control. Now, when a band plays in the bar, a manager will walk the Monon Greenway with a decibel meter. To stay in compliance with the noise ordinance, the noise must remain under 90 decibels from 60 feet away. According to Hamman, the bar has received no noise complaints in 2013, and it hopes to keep it that way. He scoffed at accusations Detour will turn the refined Arts & Design District into another Broad Ripple, the Indianapolis neighborhood renowned for it’s younger crowd and cheap bars. “I can’t pay the rent here with dollar-beer specials,” Hamman said. “College kids aren’t going to pay $10 for a sandwich.” Detour would like to have about a half-dozen outdoor events a year, mostly in the warmer months. Hamman claims business is so slow during the winter, they need the crowdgathering outdoor events – which make about $250,000 for the business – to make a profit for the year. If they can’t work out an arrangement with the city, Hamman said he might move Detour when its lease is up, taking with it more than 60 jobs and $200,000 in annual taxes. “We want to be a good neighbor,” Hamman said. “We’ve tried to fix our mistakes. We’re trying to get into the city’s good graces again.” Brainard said he was not aware of Detour’s decibel meter or of its written plans to curb complaints, but he was hopeful that an agreement could be reached at some point – assuming they’re willing to change their loud tune. “We want Detour to succeed, but we don’t want them to cause problems for their neighbors,” Brainard said. “If they can change how they’ve operated in the past, we’d be glad to look at any plans they want to submit.”

What do you think? Should Detour be allowed to hold outdoor events that bring visitors to the Arts & Design District or should it remain in time-out until it can learn to be quieter? Tweet your response with the hashtag #CarmelDetour.

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP None too soon, it’s off to market!

Misstep It is our position that the technical glitches that occurred during the implementation of the recent statewide mandated ISTEP test are merely a symptom of the superfluous nature of standardized testing. While technical difficulties come with the territory when tens of thousands of computer users are simultaneously logging into the same website, CBT/ McGraw-Hill was grossly negligent in its failure to prepare for the anticipated onslaught of users. In the totality of a school year, what’s the big deal if ISTEP is delayed? The big deal is that the botched implementation has created a domino effect with far greater implications beyond upsetting the students’ schedule. Teacher evaluations and ultimately their income depend on the students’ ability to perform on the test. Schools depend on the outcome for earning an A through F letter grade, affecting their funding and viability. If the intent is to measure student learning on a level playing field, the field will never be level unless all the students have the same school calendar, same school setting, same cultural learning opportunities outside of school and same home life. Isn’t there a more productive way to spend $95 million on the public education of our children?

The next 200 years Commentary by Terry Anker Last week, Keira Amstutz, chief executive officer of Indiana Humanities and Sally Jo Vasicko, co-director of the Bowen Center for Public Affairs at Ball State University, announced the recipients of grants to support local community conversations. The program, now in its fifth year, brings together civic, business and political leaders to consider significant regional matters important to Indiana communities. While each program is customized to meet the specific needs and objectives of the awardee, the agenda usually brings experts from around the state (or nation) to convene and discuss the problems and opportunities facing these places. Then, the Bowen Center and Indiana Humanities will evaluate possible solutions for addressing the identified community challenges, and then support the project with ongoing consultation. The theme of this year’s program, Bicentennial 2016: The Next Indiana, encourages Hoosiers to take a long view of community development and

planning. Amstutz says it is designed to “serve as a catalyst for the necessary, but difficult, conversations about how Indiana communities can prepare for the next 200 years.” Brenda Myers and her team at the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau were awarded a grant and seek to lead a meaningful cross-county conversation about how our heritage can be preserved and presented for the future. Hamilton County is one of the most economically robust communities in America. How can learning, planning and projecting a thoughtful future be a bad idea? Our heritage is one of innovation in agriculture production, community development and entrepreneurship. We should learn from our successes and failures with an eye toward what’s next.

May 18 will bring a momentous morning to Carmel with another edition of the Carmel Farmers Market, which that day will lift the curtain on its 2013 outdoor season. Hours are 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and the weekly event runs through Oct. 5. Sixty-five vendors under the direction of market chief Ron Carter and his legions of volunteers will have fresh and creative offerings once again. (Can you tell we’re excited?) There will be plenty to eat, sip and sniff as the booths once again will be open for business. The location is Center Green, right between the Palladium and the Booth Tarkington Theatre on the campus of the Center for the Performing Arts. The Monon Trail is just to the east, which makes it a viable option for walkers, runners and cycling enthusiasts. There will be live entertainment. Eventually, it will be a purchase point for Spark Buttons, the sale of which supports the greatest fireworks show in Indiana each July 4 at CarmelFest. Plenty of parking is available in the garage to the south of the Tarkington, and there will be a secure bike corral, staffed by members of the Mayor’s Youth Council, each week. For more information, please visit, but, just as important, please visit the market itself. And then return. If you’ve never been, it really is a terrific slice of Americana. ••• We tweeted and posted galore, but we still believe we owe you an explanation as to why last week’s paper wasn’t delivered until Tuesday. We rely on vendors, and when communication between them isn’t up to snuff, there is a lot of, shall we say, static. All that has been resolved now. We’re sorry you had to wait for delivery, but we hope you enjoyed the edition, especially the Center for the Performing Arts’ 2013-2014 schedule.

Sound system subpar

Editor, As a Palladium ‘country series’ subscriber from the start, the facility and the talent it attracts to Carmel is appreciated. Reader’s views But for these amplified concerts, the sound to me is not good. It’s faint and garbled in my area, and apparently loud and shrill in others. It’s like what you might expect in the lawn at an outdoor venue. One friend said it ‘sounds like I have a blanket over my head.’ Most attendees I talk with agree that the sound is not what one would expect for a concert. The house system is way too soft, I prefer when the artist uses their own equipment, too.

The house amps are mostly near the ceiling, putting the sound way over our heads. Put some big amps on the ground! It’s disappointing that the system is not nearly as good as that at The Murat or Clowes Hall. If the Palladium ever gets its sound on par with the rest of the experience, it will be a legendary concert facility. There was great sound for the acoustic symphony event which I attended, and some quiet moments in the country series are nice. But, as I purchase the next series, it is with the hope of much-needed improvement in the amplified sound equipment and audio consultants at the Palladium.   Mark Howard, 46033

Editor, I was glad to read that at the recent school board meeting there was public participation requesting the school board to consider increasing the time allotted for elementary school recess.  I have a child in a Carmel/Clay elementary school and was surprised when I learned that all CCS elementary school children (grades K-5) only receive a 15-minute recess. I do not feel that it is an adequate amount of time for recess.  Recess was important for me as a child – it allowed me to release extra energy and “blow off steam.” It allowed me to develop strong friendships, and it

allowed me to learn important life skills such as cooperation, negotiation and problem solving. But more importantly, recess allowed me to be a child. Our kiddos deserve to be children also. Giving the children more time at recess also will allow them to recharge their concentration and focus so they are once again ready to learn in the classroom maintaining Carmel’s high academic standards. Let’s experience excellence, explore opportunities and realize potential by recognizing the needs of our children, supporting more time at recess and voicing our concerns to the school board.

Happy about memorial story

Editor, Congratulations to Current in Carmel for publishing the cover story, “Reflecting Poorly” in the April 30 edition. Reader’s views As a resident whose apartment overlooks the reflecting pool and to whom the reflecting pool is potentially an exceptional, beautiful and laudable structure honoring our veterans and the city of Carmel, it has been my frustration to see during the last three years or more the crumbling coping (simulated lime-

stone... Indiana exports Indiana limestone internationally!) and reported costly leaking since its completion only 10 years ago. It was such a pleasure for me as well as my neighbors, friends and city residents, to see that the poor state of the Veterans Memorial reflecting pool is being addressed. The Veterans Memorial and the reflecting pool should be a site which brings a great sense of pride to our veterans and the residents of this outstanding city of Carmel. Nancy L. Mercante, 46032 

It’s a no-brainer Editor, I am disappointed in your poor choice of timing when you cite (with photo) Andy Ray’s long-past renunciation of his Eagle Scout credentials in the same issue of Current (April 30) in which the Carmel Mayor’s Breakfast for Scouting appears (without photo). This was an unfortunate and completely unnecessary distraction. Mr. Ray was undoubtedly aware of the words comprising the Scout Oath (they have remained virtually unchanged for over a century). Words have meaning, and he was under no obligation to join the organization if he was unwilling to abide by both the oath and the provisions of the Scout law. As the parent and grandparent of Eagle Scouts, it is easy for me to choose whether I would want my Eagle Scouts to emulate examples like Eagle Scout/Astronaut/American hero Neil Armstrong or disgruntled former Eagle Scout/Obscure Columnist Andy Ray. It really is a no-brainer. David Clingman, 46033

Likes the new Current

Editor, I knew something was different – and better-looking – when I began my weekly reading of my favorite newspaper. First of all, it seemed easier to handle and read, ads “jumped out at me” and headlines and color were sharper. Kudos to you. I went on to read what you did, and I LIKE IT.   Lori Mansell, 46033

Bad hair won’t bring me down Commentary by Danielle Wilson

So, I burnt a clump of my hair off the other morning. I guess I wasn’t paying enough attention to what I was doing because humor before I realized what was happening, I was seeing smoke and a crispy patch of fried ginger locks floating downward. My blow dryer can, apparently, emit some intense heat! Luckily, said locks were toward the back of my head and in an area where I have ample amounts of frizzage, so the section won’t be too noticeable. Anyhoo, to add insult to my near-injury, a short time later, I proceeded to smear a piece of chocolate protein bar on a new skirt during my drive into work and then spill coffee down my white blouse as I booted up my laptop. Suffice it to say, I am one hot mess right now. I bring all of this up because, surprisingly, as I sat typing in my stained clothes and damaged hair, I was completely at peace. I was not panicked, my self-esteem was in check, and I had yet to utter a swear word (and that’s saying something, damn it.) Is it the yoga? Perhaps, but I think something else is behind my unusual acceptance of this series of unfortunate events. A colleague recently suffered a terrible tragedy, one of the worst imaginable, and to see her coming to work and carrying on as best she can, makes my freaking out about a bald spot seem just plain silly. I also have a friend who is endur-

ing cancer treatment and another who is going through a heartbreaking divorce. In comparison to their worries, who really cares if I ruin a stupid shirt? Life has been suddenly thrust into perspective. Bottom line, I lead a charmed life. My children are healthy and happy, my husband and I are both employed and still in love, and we have a tremendous network of friends and family who support us. And yet, I’ll admit to days where the “Woe is me!” attitude takes over. I complain about Doo, the dog, the fact that my kids have to be reminded to put their cereal bowls in the dishwasher. Every. Single. Time. Sometimes, I guess we all can use a wake-up call, or several. People are dealing with real issues, real sorrows, and for us lucky ones who fate has spared momentarily, it’s important to not get caught up in the irritating minutia that, in reality, just don’t mean squat. So, I’m not going to obsess about my new hairdo or throw a tizzy about my messy appearance. And I’m going to try to keep my focus on what’s truly important – good health, family and paying attention while handling electric styling tools. Peace out.

Of God, America and our children Commentary by Luci Snyder

I often have been struck by the nodes of genius that periodically have occurred throughout history, clusters of brilliance such opinion as the great art of Greece and Rome and then, again, during the Renaissance, the glorious music of Handel, Mozart and Beethoven in the early 1700s. And, fortunately for America, in the late 1700s, the great minds were focused on the nature and source of government. The Western world had upheld the Divine Right of Kings; that all the land belonged to the king and any land or rights the people had were given, or taken away, by the king. The king’s immense power came from God. But, as we moved out of the Dark Ages, the king’s power was being whittled by the nobility. Nevertheless, the common man had few rights and virtually no ability to be educated, to rise above his station or to own land, and he had no ability to control his destiny. In many countries, this still is true. Our founding fathers, in sync with thinkers in Europe, repudiated The Divine Right of Kings and postulated instead that all rights - life, liberty, property and speech - came to each human individually from God and that, therefore, humans had the ability to form their own government and assign the ability to be governed to their elected representatives or to take it away.

Their manifesto was the Declaration of Independence and the contract between the governed and the government they authorized and created was the U.S. Constitution. God, therefore, was the declared and avowed reason for the very existence of America. Because human beings had God-given rights, they could create this nation. Remove God from that equation and we stand on a foundation of sand. Notice I didn’t mention any particular religion not Congregationalist or Lutheran, not Jewish or Mormon, not Roman Catholic or Buddhist. I only mentioned God. The only ban was that there could not be an official state religion. All religions were protected as long as they adhered to our laws. I put down these thoughts because of the “new” Boston Massacre perpetrated by Islamic Jihadists. I want people who say that America is somehow at fault for the actions of these murderers who used their religion as an excuse to blow an 8-year-old boy to smithereens, to understand that there never is an excuse for that behavior, especially in America, a country which exists because founders believed in the God-given rights of human beings.

A taste of Broadway is coming to Carmel. For five performances, May 15 through 19, the Carmel High School auditorium will be transformed into a lush and wondrous theatre jungle complete with swinging vines, dancing flowers and exotic costumes, all set to the music and lyrics of Phil Collins, in “Disney’s Tarzan: the Musical.” “This is an incredible group of kids with amazing voices,” director Lamonte Kuskye said. “And we are the first high school in the state of Indiana to secure the rights to perform this musical.” “Disney’s Tarzan: The Musical” premiered on Broadway in 2006. Kuskye, along with a dedicated staff from both the music and theatre departments, has guided the 62-member cast, comprised of mostly juniors and seniors through a rigorous 10-week rehearsal schedule. More than 170 students auditioned for the show and more than 250 students are involved in the production, between costumes, make-up, technical and backstage crew, props and orchestra. The lead character of Tarzan is played by junior Ian Bossung. It is his first leading role, but he is no stranger to the stage, having performed in “Hello Dolly” and “Les Miserables” at Carmel High School and in “A Chorus Line” at Carmel Civic Theatre. Upon graduation, he plans to pursue a degree in musical theatre, and Broadway is his

ultimate goal. Bossung feels that he has truly become the character, but grimaces when asked if he has had any costume fittings yet. “No, I have not yet seen the loin cloth. I’m kind of dreading that,” Bossung said. To replicate the vibrancy of the jungle, choreographer Ron Morgan has created dancing creatures in the form of wind, water, earth, animals, bugs and flowers. The sophisticated production also features numerous flying characters, dazzling special effects and show-stopping musical numbers. But beyond all Disney-esque magic, the message of the show prevails: Regardless of the world we are born into, we are all part of the same family, and we all have the same beating heart. The play will run May 15 through May 19. Tickets are $8 to $18 and can be purchased online at, or at the CHS bookstore. They also may be purchased at the door, availability permitting.

All five shows exceeded ticket goals with “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” grossing more than $250,000 in sales, a theatre record. “Not only are we entertaining the members of this community, but the reviews of our shows by critics have been overwhelmingly positive,” Dick said. “So there is clear evidence of artistic excellence. Jr. Civic workshop enrollment has grown by 300 percent since moving to Carmel. Families throughout Central Indiana are discovering that Civic Theatre is a trusted resource when it comes to giving their children significant learning opportunities.” The momentum continues to build. Civic Theatre just announced the line-up for its 99th season anchored by a reprise of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and the promise of an epic musical blockbuster in the spring of 2014 to launch the theatre’s historic 100th year.

Let potatoes cool at room temperature. Slice off top of potato horizontally and gently scoop out potato leaving Cooking tip: When storing any potatoes, do not refrigerate. A cool pantry or dark area is best (50 degrees Fahrenheit) for up to two to three weeks if fresh.

Make your legs summer ready

Commentary by Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D.

Warmer weather is finally upon us and with it comes the summer wardrobe. Unsightly spider veins can make us uncomfortable advice in summer apparel but can be easily treated. Spider veins are dilated blood vessels that form just under the skin and result in red, blue or purple clusters of veins visible on the skin’s surface. Besides the appearance of these dilated veins, other symptoms may include skin redness, and for some patients, pain and swelling. After a lengthy winter, our tans have faded and spider veins may be more obvious. Once we begin wearing shorts, capris or swimsuits, we become more aware of them. Many women are not comfortable with the cosmetic appearance of their spider veins and will continue to wear long pants throughout the summer. Not all the visible veins on your legs are necessarily spider veins. Some of your visible veins may be larger size reticular or even varicose veins. It is important to have a screening ultrasound before treatment to determine exactly

what venous problems exist. If they are spider veins, but they are not severe, walking, anti-inflammatory medications and cold compresses may be recommended. Most patients will benefit from wearing prescription strength compression stockings. However, in most cases, sclerotherapy is the best treatment to eliminate the veins. Sclerotherapy is a simple treatment that involves using a tiny needle to inject medicine into the veins, which causes them to collapse and disappear. The needed number of treatments will vary depending upon the patient and the severity of the spider veins. Most of the veins will disappear during the first treatment and will continue to improve over time, but additional treatments may be needed. Generally, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Jeffery P.

Exercise tips for staying healthy Commentary by Jessica Saberman, MD

Warmer weather and more daylight hours are the perfect combination for exercising and getting work done outside. In fact, fitness many people don’t realize that outdoor chores like yard work, pulling weeds and mowing the lawn are actually great forms of exercise. Activities such as weeding, planting flowers and mowing can burn between 200 and 400 calories per hour. Gardening provides fitness benefits because you’re continually getting up and down, stretching, bending and reaching. Whether you’re venturing outside for that first springtime run/walk or getting the yard in shape, it’s important to take care of your body and avoid overdoing it. Taking the proper precautions will help prevent unnecessary aches, pains and other health issues so you can enjoy the summer. Here are some tips: • Warm up and stretch before engaging in exercise or any physical activity (including yard work). As we age, our bodies become stiff, so this is especially important for adults. • Build endurance gradually; resist “jumping in” to any activity or overexerting yourself. A good rule to remember: don’t increase your usual activity by more than 10 percent at a time.

dispatches Cancer support fundraiser for Rohrer family – Detour Grill in Carmel and College Wood Elementary will be hosting a Kristi’s Cancer Kickers event on May 19 from 3 to 10 p.m. to support Kristi Rohrer and her family through her treatment and recovery of breast cancer. Kristi is a Carmel resident and fourth grade teacher at College Wood. For more information, visit www. Detour Grille is located at 110 W. Main St., Suite 135.

• To keep your body fit, don’t limit exercise and physical activity to just the weekends. Be sure to exercise at least 30 minutes each day for maximum health benefit. • When doing yard work or other outdoor chores, be kind to your back by bending forward carefully and at the knees. • Use your leg and stomach muscles when lifting. • Take frequent breaks, especially if you haven’t engaged in physical activity for a period of time. • Be sure to stay well hydrated; drink water regularly while working outside. • Protect your skin from sun damage by applying sun block of SPF 30 or higher at least 30 minutes prior to outside activity. Reapply every few hours. Wearing a hat with a wide brim that covers the neck, ears and forehead is also a good idea. • Pay attention to your body. If you feel uncomfortable or experience a sharp pain or ache, stop what you’re doing and rest. If the pain or feeling persists, consult your doctor.

Easy buying means more buying Commentary by David Cain

Is your business easy to buy from? Does the customer have to think and struggle to figure out what to do next? How fast business do you answer the question, “What are the next steps?” Forget your business, what about you personally? Are you easy or hard to work with? Are you complex and mysterious or do you make it easy for people to understand you? I shop at basically one grocery store. I eat lunch there often and almost every day I do a bit of shopping there, too. I usually pick up some things for dinner. They recently changed their grocery bags. This new version has a handle that breaks easily versus the old sturdy-handled bag. It’s a quick lesson to learn, the fact that the handle gives up quickly. After the first couple of broken items, you know to carry it from the bottom. I was walking back to the office from lunch with two awkwardly filled bags each cradled in my arm like they were babies. As I fumbled along I thought, “This is a lot of work.” In fact, it’s so much work that after a few visits, I noticed I wasn’t buying as much. Not necessarily on purpose, but I was con-

sciously not purchasing anything heavy. I visited a restaurant a week ago. There were so many choices that all sounded delicious that the ordering process took forever. It was unintentionally the longest dinner in recent memory. So long that I left thinking, “I’ll never go back and probably eat at home for the foreseeable future.” Too many choices, and it’s harder to reach a decision fast. As a business that provides a service as one of its products, I fall into the same trap – being hard to buy from. Successful businesses are easy to buy from. The choices are obvious and what you get is well documented. The process of buying is smooth and easy and you are on your way, enjoying your purchase, fast. As you evaluate your professional and personal processes, it’s important to consider how easy you are to work with. Easy always has a tendency to translate to frequent.

Serving its signature beef brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, City Barbeque opened its third Indianapolis location in Carmel now open at 1356 S. Range Line Road on May 9. The 3,242-square-foot restaurant seats 88 indoors and has a covered outdoor patio that seats 44. Like all City Barbeque locations, smokers have been installed and the barbeque will be slow-smoked on-site. The new location is expected to employ about 35 workers, including Jeff deVezin, the general manager. City Barbeque has two locations in the Indianapolis area – Greenwood and Avon. “Indianapolis has been very welcoming to us. Hoosiers like their barbeque.” deVezin said. “We’ve had our eye on a location in Carmel for a long time, and we’re very excited to be part of the community.” City Barbeque slow-smokes its meats over hickory wood for hours, and all sandwiches are hand-cut and made fresh by pit masters. Featured meats include beef brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken and sausage. All the side dishes and desserts are made daily in the kitchen from scratch using family recipes provided by employees. Favorites include corn pudding, baked beans with brisket, hush puppies and peach cobbler. Since opening in 1999 in Columbus, Ohio, City Barbeque has earned many awards, including

SHADES FOR YOU When choosing the right sunglasses, it is important to keep face shape in mind. Creating balance with frame shapes that complement your face is key to looking hot all summer long. Oval People with an oval face are lucky, as just about any style works for this shape. One of the best looks is a square frame with slightly rounded edges and higher temples. Round The goal for a round face is to have your frames create a long, lean look. It’s best to look for a shape that will minimize roundness and add definition. Look for wider frames with angular or rectangular styles. Diamond Those with a diamond face have wide or high cheekbones with a more narrow forehead and chin. A nice pair of oval sunglasses is the perfect way to soften the angles of the face. Be sure to choose a frame that does not come past the top of the cheek bones. Square Square faces are known for their broad foreheads and strong jawline. Soft, curvy styles help will round out those sharp lines and give the face even more definition. Cat Eye frames are perfect for creating this look. Oblong Create the illusion of a wider, shorter bone structure by choosing a style that does not extend beyond the widest part of your face. Round or square shapes are best for achieving this look.


HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH The phrase “more is better” just doesn’t work when it comes to using hair products. We have found that using too much of certain styling products can weigh your hair down, or make it look dull. Before you go crazy with your portions, check out our simple guide for lightening up and looking fabulous. Shine Serum A blueberry size drop of product is plenty for your shine serum. To use, rub the product together between your palms and smooth it on your dry hair from earlobe to ends. To avoid an oily look, be careful not to place the serum at your roots. Salon 01 Concepts Shine Serum is the perfect product to use to tame those fly-aways, while giving your ‘do a polished look. Straightening Balm You can be more generous with your straightening balm, using about the size of a small strawberry. On damp hair, work the balm from ends to roots, then comb through to evenly distribute the product. Aquage Straightening Ultragel, found at Salon 01, is our top stylist go-to. Mousse An apricot sized puff of mousse is ideal on damp hair. Massage into roots until the foam is absorbed and flip your head while drying on high for greatest volume. SUMMER HAIR COLOR TRENDS The French are responsible for many things. Among them; French bread, French kissing, and complicated French words that make any unilingual American uneasy. But before you give up on your quest to master that European dictionary, try out the latest vocab in the salon. With color techniques like Ombre and Balayage, making a statement without words has never been easier. Ombre Coming from the word “gradation” in French, ombre literally means coloring the hair from light to dark. We love this trend because it is low-maintenance and perfect for any color. Since the lighter shade doesn’t start at the root, frequent salon visits for touch-ups aren’t necessary. Balayage This summer, skip the foils and opt for a more strategic color application with the Balayage method. The technique, a French term for “hair painting”, is the perfect way to create a natural look without traditional streaks. Avoiding foils all together, Balayage is done by painting the hair by hand. This process can be less damaging than traditional highlights because it omits heat-conducting foils that take a toll on your hair’s health. It also allows your stylist to strategically place your highlights to create a customized look that is best suited for your haircut and face shape.

Take good design outdoors Commentary by Vicky Earley

For printing your a quote next job. on CALL TODAY US

The outdoor living season has nothing at all to do with a calendar. It starts the first decorating day that the cover is thrown off the grill and the outdoor furniture is returned to its righteous position of importance. May 2013 has been kind to us, so I declare that the season of enjoying the outdoor space has begun. When this tease of warmer days draws us from behind closed doors, it is time to plan an outdoor room that is a sensational reflection of your home. Fabrics for outdoor furnishings now rival the couture fabrics once available only as interior fabric. “Environmental textile” collections now offer chenilles that are stunning on an outdoor sectional sofa. Woven fabrics with deep and rich colors formerly reserved for the great indoors open an entirely different path for patio furnishings. The palm trees and wild floral prints are no longer the only choice. The outdoor room can now be a reflection of a sophisticated interior. Outdoor lighting is now a focal fea-

ture and eons away from the simple brass fixture that has always hung next to the front door of a home. This element is the most exciting change in outdoor décor and ranges from chandeliers, to fans, to outdoor lamps. The styles and finishes can be just as beautiful as the indoor variety. If you have a covered porch or patio, consider using a hanging light over your outdoor dining table. Again, the styles are vast, ranging from traditional; coach style and arts and crafts. Floor lamps for outdoor room use are available. When purchasing these for use in an unprotected area, make sure the instructions clearly state that they have sealed shades and waterproof switches. Outdoor space is the perfect place to relax surrounded by good design. The new product offerings make it possible to take the indoors out and create more living space without driving a single nail.   Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in Carmel.

Remodel makes better use of bathroom’s wasted space Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL MASTER BATHROOM: Built in 1988, the master bathroom in this West Carmel home, located in the Coppergate subdivision, was due for a remodel. After BLUEPRINT FOR 10 years of living in IMPROVEMENT the home, the current owners decided they wanted an updated space with the latest technology and design. WHY REMODEL? Like many homes built during this time, the master bathroom had a large, deck-mounted garden tub and a small shower. The tub was not being used, and it took up a lot of space. The far end of the original footprint was completely wasted space, so there was ample opportunity to create a more efficient design. DESIGN PHASE: According to the project designer, “Although we remove garden tubs from master bathrooms and replace them with large showers quite often, in this neighborhood, future homeowners would also expect the full complement of bath fixtures. Therefore, we filled the previously empty space with a new, luxury shower and installed a free-standing tub under the window. The long, narrow shape of the bathroom footprint makes the new shower the focal point of the room. The tile medallion on the shower wall adds to this idea.” SHOWER DETAILS: Creating the ultimate shower experience was another goal of the

(Above left) A medallion on the shower wall is now the master bath’s focal point. (Above right) The master bath shower includes several types of shower heads. (Submitted photos)

homeowners. Multiple shower heads were installed, including body sprays, a rain head and a standard shower head. The size of the space allowed for a large bench and deep shower niches to be created as well. A frameless glass shower door finishes the space. The floor tile is a 10-inch by 18-inch Castle Travertine, and the floor medallion is a 36-inch Daltile La Flora design. In

the shower, the floor is covered in Daltile’s Emprerador Light 3-inch by 12-inch stripe in a basket weave pattern. RESULT: According to the homeowner, “The whole family enjoys being in the new master bathroom and no one wants to leave. Our son and daughter are using it too! We are very happy with the final result.”
