Detective uses hounds to find lost pets By Terri Spilman • news@currentincarmel.com What are new residents of the Carmel Arts & Design District to do when their beloved pet cat suddenly disappears, leaving two feline Pets siblings in despair and their owners sick with worry? It sounds like the plot of an Ace Ventura, Pet Detective movie. But after three weeks in its new home, recent Indianapolis transplants Mark and Rita Marley’s family pet of 10 years, a blue Russian/gray mix named Girl Kitty, went missing. “We did an immediate area search on foot and posted missing notices on Craigslist and Indy Lost Pet Alert. We shared over 300 flyers/postcards with neighbors, local area veterinarians and local businesses. We walked the area daily for up to three hours at a time, talked to residents often and made several visits to both humane societies,” explained Rita Marley. “While posting ads on Craigslist, we came across a pet detective, Jim Berns, based out of Cincinnati. We discussed our situation with him, and - after some due diligence to find out if he was legitimate - we decided to hire him and his two search dogs (a coonhound and a bloodhound) for a day.” Berns is entering his sixth year as a pet detective and has done more than 300 searches for the organization Pet Search and Rescue based out of California. His daughter, Annalisa Berns, specializes in criminology and owns the company. “Almost everyone who loses a dog or cat posts on Craigslist as one way to get the pet back. That function of Craigslist works really well,” Berns said. He also cautioned that pet detectives might not be right for every situation. “What happens is we don’t work every time, but it puts the odds back in favor of owners getting their pets back. More than half get them back safe and sound,” he said. Berns is somewhat of a person of intrigue, like Jim Carrey’s pet detective character, Ace Ventura, though Berns prefers wearing a fluorescent orange vest as opposed to a brightly colored Hawaiian shirt while on the hunt. On the weekends, Berns is a pet detective, but during the week he holds a full-time job managing the woodshop at the University of Cincinnati archi-

DVD Review Director Paul Greengrass is not a man who deals in moral absolutes. In “Captain Phillips” he, along with screenwriter Billy Ray and star Tom Hanks, relate the true story of an American cargo ship captain who was kidnapped at sea by Somali pirates. But rather than making the bad guys faceless, soulless villains, he portrays them as real, thinking individuals who feel pressured to commit acts of piracy. Read more at currentnightandday.com

tecture school and has run for public office several times on the Libertarian ticket. When asked if he has any similarities to Ace Ventura, Berns said, “I love the movie. Only I don’t have any beautiful women chasing me like he did.” Hiring a pet detective is not cheap. The cost ranges from $450 to $800 for just half a day in the Indianapolis area, with the fee covering costs of training, care of the dogs, travel expenses and a modest profit. Luckily, the Marleys’ story had a happy ending. The hounds, Samantha and Luchious, did not find Girl Kitty, though they were able to narrow down a one-mile radius for the Marleys to concentrate their search efforts in. After three weeks, a dog walker who was familiar with the Marleys’ search found Girl Kitty only seven blocks away. “The community was amazing. I feel like we know all of our neighbors now,” said Rita. And when asked if she would hire a pet detective again, she said, “Yes, at least he gave us an idea of where to search. He’s an animal lover. He was truly concerned.” In the words of Ace Venture, “Alrighty then … ” For more information visit www.petsearchandrescue.com.

Andy Ray’s take

Current columnist Andy Ray says Leonardo DiCaprio is excellent in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.” There may not have been anyone better suited to play this role – one which may finally earn him the coveted Best Actor Oscar. And given the depressing and disgusting subject matter, “The Wolf of Wall Street” is hilarious. The slow-motion drug use sequences involving Quaaludes are some of the funniest ever filmed. But its not even the best movie currently in theatres. To read more of his review visit www.currentincarmel.com.

Hoosier Salon still yearns for Carmel By Pete Smith • pete@youarecurrent.com It appears the city of Carmel’s flirtations with the Hoosier Salon art gallery did not go unrequited. The 90-year-old art gallery currently art located in the Broad Ripple neighborhood of Indianapolis is now reconsidering a possible move to Carmel after a snub three months ago. In October 2013 the Hoosier Salon’s board decided not to relocate the prominent art gallery from Broad Ripple to Carmel. In a statement, the board said at the time, “Like many arts organizations, Hoosier Salon has just emerged from a turbulent financial time. Our board decided it was more important for Hoosier Salon’s long-term viability to take a few years to stabilize its finances and build up additional financial reserves before contemplating a new gallery location.” But with the new year comes a new makeup of the board’s members and a new willingness to ask for help securing affordable rent. In September, the Hoosier Salon tested the waters during an Arts & Design District gallery walk at the vacant storefront at 20 N. Range Line Rd. At the time the test was deemed a success. “We had more than 400 people that Friday and Saturday and sold a painting, which is very, very good,” Hoosier Salon Executive Director Donnae

This vacant building on Range Line Road north of Main Street is still in the running to become the new home of the Hoosier Salon art gallery. (File photo)

Dole said. And the Hoosier Salon would like to locate to that same space. It has approached the Carmel City Center Community Development Corporation about securing a lease for the building and then subletting the site to the art gallery at a discount. The 4CDC board tasked its lawyer, State Rep. Brian Bosma (R-Fishers), with negotiating the lease. Although the negotiations are ongoing, the initial offer from landlord Curtis Butcher was for $3,000 monthly rent. The 4CDC has offered an introductory six-month rent subsidy of $1,250 per month. A final decision will likely be made at the next 4CDC board meeting Feb. 11.

Compiled by Pete Smith

for 6 1.9% 0 mo nths

What happened: The school board heard a legislative report from Supt. Nicholas Wahl and Asst. Supt. Roger McMichael. What it means: There was a discussion of the so-called Circuit Breaker law and how it would force revenue shortfalls due to property tax caps. Those shortfalls would require budget cuts to the school district’s transportation and capital projects funds when the law takes effect in 2015. Wahl urged the board to sign a resolution that other Hamilton County government entities are currently considering. Its main provision is: “The recently enacted Senate Bill 517 … adversely impacts local government entities, including school corporations, throughout the state. One of its immediate impacts in Hamilton County will cause WestfieldWashington Schools to eliminate transportation. Unless it is repealed, it could have the same impact on all Hamilton County school corporations.”

What’s next: The board will decide on a course of action at its Jan. 27 meeting.

What happened: The school board voted to elect its officers. What it means: Layla Spanenberg will be the board president, Pam Knowles will be the board vice president and Patricia Hackett will be the board secretary for 2014.

Worthington Hagerman became a well-known artist in the Taos, N.M., art community and a trusted, but mysback in the day terious, American diplomat in wartime Europe, yet he is not well-known here in his hometown of Carmel. The son of Quaker parents, Hagerman was born in 1878 on a farm off Clay Center Road north of 116th Street. In 1896 he graduated from Carmel High School, where his artistic talent had already begun to show itself. Although by no means wealthy, he managed to enter art school in Chicago, and later graduated from William Penn College in Iowa. Wanting to go to France to pursue his art training, Worthy, as he was known, managed to get to Paris a few years before the outbreak of World War I. To support himself he first landed a teaching job, then sought and secured a job with the American Foreign Service Association. He volunteered in the medical corps during the war, and at the same time moved up through the AFSA’s ranks. He married, divorced and married again, then had a daughter and remained in France following World War l. He was still a diplomat attached to the U.S. embassy as Nazi Germany began its rise in the early 1930s. By the late ’30s something interesting showed up in Worthy’s job assignment. He was sent on brief visits to a half-dozen European capitals including Rome, Berlin and London. Why was a mid-level foreign service employee sent to major capitals as war loomed in Europe? Records of these travels either do not exist or have never been found. Was he doing intelligence work for the United States? We may never

know, but it wouldn’t take much imagination to see that he could easily pose as an innocent artist if indeed a “cover” was needed. In 1940 he was transferred to the U.S. embassy in Lisbon. Interestingly, during World War II, he returned to America with orders to report to the State Department in Washington. What was he reporting? Again, we have no record. During that visit in 1942 Worthy came back to Carmel, staying several days with relatives. He was invited to speak to the students at Carmel High School, where he likely gave a firsthand account of the events in war-torn Europe. Local newspapers reported his appearance. He returned to his post in Lisbon, a neutral city known as the European escape hatch for Jews and others sought by the Nazis. Evidence suggests that he helped in the escape effort. (After the war, a Frenchman wrote a letter to diplomatic authorities noting that Worthy assisted in his escape.) With the end of the war, Worthy retired and returned to the United States to finally take up his beloved art full-time. He settled in New Mexico and painted some prized art, which is on display at the University of New Mexico. Some of his work, including auctioned paintings, can be found online.

New physical therapy center opens By Chris Bavender • news@currentincarmel.com Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital has a new outpatient physical therapy facility in Carmel. The center opened Jan. 13 at 805 now open W. Carmel Dr. Planning for the center was in the works for more than a year. “We have been interested in opening a physical therapy clinic in the Carmel area for some time. With our OrthoIndy physician office located in the St.Vincent Carmel professional office buildings, and the large volume of patients it sees from that area, we felt it made sense to open a freestanding clinic in that area to allow those patients convenient access to our therapy services,” said Jeff Sorg, manager of the hospital’s Physical Therapy department. “Our existing (hospital) therapy clinics work closely with OrthoIndy’s physicians to provide the best possible experience and outcomes, and we felt it was a natural progression to bring that same level of service and expertise to the Carmel area.” Three staff members will man the center including Senior Physical Therapist James Gruesser and Physical Therapists Courtney Orsbon and Abigail Edwards. But as volume grows, Sorg said additional staff will be added. Services will include treatment of all upper and lower extremity orthopedic injuries, postoperative extremity rehab, treatment of sportsrelated injuries, joint mobilization, spinal stabili-

zation and core strengthening programs. Sorg said he expects to see about 20 to 30 new patients per week, with approximately 10,000 total visits annually. OrthoIndy physicians also provide care to the Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever, Indiana Ice, Indianapolis Indians, Dance Kaleidoscope and Naptown Roller Girls, as well as local colleges and high schools. The center will be open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. For more information call 802-2000 or visit www.orthoindy.com.

Retiree finds purpose in ministry Commentary by Jeff Worrell

If Susan Barrett isn’t tired, she should be. She taught every elementary school grade except first grade for volunteerism more than 20 years in the Carmel Clay school system. During her time as a teacher she even advised the student council toward a $22,000 donation to Riley, which still stands as a record all these years later. Now retired since 1998, Barrett is most famous for her work not as a teacher, but as the angel behind the angel. For Barrett, it all started back in 1976 when she joined Carmel United Methodist Church. As was tradition at Christmastime, the church provides gifts to children of incarcerated parents through its Angel Tree program. One special year, Barrett was assigned an angel for a child whose parent serving in prison happened to have the combined name of both of her sons. She said, “At that moment I decided someday, when my schedule would allow, I was going to return to this program and volunteer.” The year Barrett retired is the same year she signed up to volunteer for the Carmel United Methodist Church Angel Tree Prison Ministry. And now she runs it. Working closely with Mike Podgorski, Barrett and her team provide two gifts to each child.

One is a toy and the other is clothing. This past holiday season, more than 200 children received a bit of Christmas joy. And if not for the church, it wouldn’t have happened. Staging the program is a monumental task. Organizing volunteers to purchase, wrap and deliver the packages is just the tip of the iceberg. According to Barrett, sometimes just finding the children and managing where they will be on delivery day is a significant challenge. But as happens each year, after the worry, toil and stress are overcome, children receive their gifts and the mission is complete. “People are so generous,” she said. “One man scooped up a pile of angels on distribution day. At first I wondered if he knew what he was getting into, but he provided every gift he promised.” Susan tells a story which sums up the humanity of the entire program: She learned of a family whose mother was dying of cancer. When she asked the son if he had a picture of his mother, he said no. You can guess the rest. That child’s gift was a camera. There’s probably no way to measure the good that came from that camera. That’s Carmeltude. Jeff Worrell is a member of the Carmel Redevlopment Commission.He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on cable channel 16.

Carmel senior named state’s cross country runner of the year news@currentincarmel.com

Carmel High School senior Kelcy Welch was named Gatorade’s Indiana Cross Country Runner of the Year. achievement During her high school career Welch, the daughter of Carmel residents Vince and Trudie Welch, helped lead Carmel to four consecutive IHSAA cross country championships. This fall as a senior, Welch was named the IHSAA Individual Cross Country State Champion and received the IHSAA Mental Attitude Award. Welch is the only runner - girl or boy - in Indiana high school cross country history to win the individual state title, team state title and mental attitude award in one season. During her senior year, Welch was MIC champion, regional champion, semi-state champion and state champion. Welch also won the Footlocker Midwest Championship in Kenosha, Wis., featuring the top runners from 13 states. The victory advanced her to the Footlocker Nationals in San Diego, featuring the top 40 runners in the country. She finished 17th. She also led her team to the Nike Nationals in Portland, Ore., where she finished 14th and the team placed fourth. Welch has maintained a 4.19 GPA in the classroom. Also a devoted member of her church youth group, she serves as a mentor to elementary school students and volunteers locally on behalf of an assisted living facility. “Kelcy was an inspiration,” said Mark Ellington,

She’s a very focused person who is very supportive of her teammates, and she has demonstrated great leadership for many years.” Welch has not yet chosen a college to attend. She’s also now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year award to be announced later this month.

Early on the morning of Jan. 5 as the entire region was bracing for the start of the week’s epic snowfall and cold snap, an crime unidentified man walked into the Speedway gas station on Michigan Road in Carmel and robbed the store. Now police are seeking the public’s help identifying the man. Carmel police said in a statement that they responded to the Speedway gas station at 10005 Michigan Rd. in reference to a robbery at 3:03 a.m. Police said the suspect was described as a heavyset black man 30 to 40 years old, approximately five feet, nine inches tall, wearing a brown vest jacket with a yellow short-sleeved T-shirt underneath. The suspect was also wearing a black-andwhite baseball cap and black gloves. He used a brown scarf with fringe to cover his face, police said. The store’s clerk said the man entered the store and told the clerk to give him all the money. The clerk said the man then said, “Give me all your money before I shoot you.”

Surveillance cameras captured this image of a man who robbed a Speedway gas station on Michigan Road the morning of Jan. 5.

During the robbery, the man implied that he had a handgun, but never displayed a weapon. He took an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register and left through the front door of the business, police said. The man was last seen running south of the business, police said. Police are asking anyone with information on this robbery to contact the Carmel Police Department Investigations Division at 571-2511 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 262-8477.

Michigan Road gym sees rash of thefts By Sophie Pappas • news@currentincarmel.com

At L.A. Fitness, at Michigan Road and 106th Street in Carmel, gym members have reported that personal items such as cash, crime wallets, iPhones and jewelry have been stolen in recent weeks from the men’s locker room. Operations Manager Chris Brady said these issues could have been prevented if people had been taken precautions. “Over 90 percent of these problems can be avoided,” Brady said. “It’s about common sense.” L.A. Fitness provides free lockers in its locker rooms; - users need to bring only their own lock. “You just need a $3 or $4 lock and all of your

things will be safe,” Brady said. The gym also provides small four-inch-by-fourinch wallet cubbies with coded locks. There are 30 of these upstairs by the elliptical machines and 30 downstairs by the check-in desk. These boxes are also free for members to use. Brady advises all gym members to use these small boxes for their wallets and keys while they work out. “Leaving your locker unlocked is just asking for someone to steal your things,” Brady said. “It’s like a woman leaving her purse on the passenger seat with her car unlocked.” Brady said L.A. Fitness calls the Carmel Police Department whenever a theft is reported, and police have been very helpful in identifying the thieves.

‘Where we can really help’

Coleman said they also help a lot of immigrants. “We have several Egyptian and Russian families, and a lot of people from the Baltic area and Hispanics, but they are only half of the people we help,” he said. Who are the other fifty percent they serve? Both Coleman and Oehler agreed they are the “I can’t believe I need this or the I can’t believe I’m here families.” “They are the working poor who can’t make ends meet these days due to life’s circumstances, such as needing a new set of tires, or higher utility bills, and they have to choose between buying tires to go to work or feeding their families” Oehler said. “This is where we can really help.”

Carmel United Methodist’s food pantry offers help to people who never thought they’d need it

‘It makes me feel good’

By Dawn Pearson • dawn@youarecurrent.com Carmel United Methodist Church’s Mission House has been supporting Hamilton County residents in various ways for 21 years. The mission started in a closet in the church cover story and has moved to its own house on the church’s property. Dave Coleman and Natalie Oehler are coordinators of the Mission House’s Food Pantry that is also the home of Second Starts and Comfort Closet. Oehler said her dream is to keep helping people and building the space into a huge mission house to help all walks of life. Second Starts collects houseware items for people would are transitioning into stable housing. “We help people who have had bad luck or made bad choices that are starting over, so we get them the household goods they need to set up a nice place to live,” Oehler said. Comfort Closet collects and distributes new and gently used clothing and outerwear to children in Carmel Clay, Hamilton Heights, Hamilton Southeastern, Noblesville, Westfield, Washington and Marion-Adams school districts in a “quiet” way according to Oehler. “It’s for grades k-12, and we work through the Hamilton County schools to find out what students need and then the clothing items are donated in more of a less public means so these kids aren’t embarrassed or feel they will get made fun of,” she said.

‘Could be bare tomorrow’

Feeding people takes top priority at Mission House.

Volunteers Sam and Janet Haskett. (Photos by Dawn Pearson)

“Hunger is a year round issue. The food need is 12 months a year, and even though our shelves are full today, they could be bare tomorrow,” Coleman said. “We have been tallying the number of families we’ve served for the past few months and the number is growing by the day.” He said that in 2008 they were helping roughly 90 families a month. Today they help almost 300. Coleman said the 275 to 300 families this month adds up to more than 1,000 people fed. “It’s been overtime with the increase of number of families we are helping due to the times, and it’s not just the poor it’s all people throughout our community,” he said.

Volunteers Sam and Janet Haskett have been helping for more than eight years not only donating their time but also donating a variety of fresh food and fruit. Sam keeps track of the people as well and said the increase in families coming to the pantry is due to circumstances of today’s economy. “Most of the people we are able to help are only temporary because they lost their job, or employer had to cut hours, and they are only with us two or three months, then they find a job,” he said. “I hear this a lot because they now have to pay for health insurance they can’t afford, they need help.” The suburban mission house workers try to make people feel comfortable in a grocery store style set-up. Oehler said they listen to their customers and don’t have anything on the shelves or freezers that she wouldn’t eat and feed to her family. How do they successfully run such a great mission house? “Through countless hours of volunteers, donations, charitable contributions and just the great members of our church and community,” Coleman said. Oehler’s seven-year-old daughter Bailey also volunteers. “It’s just fun helping people and it makes me feel good,” she said. Could you use help? Do you want to help? Recipients of aid from Carmel United Methodist Church’s food pantry must live in Hamilton County and bring photo identification or proof of residence.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Tax for transit? Are you kidding?

FROM THE EDITOR Who wins in contract dispute?

As we’ve stated in this space before, we are not necessarily against mass transit, it’s just that we are against government-backed mass transit. We are all familiar with what happens whenever the government is involved: Whatever the projected budget is, double or triple it. Whatever the timeline is, multiply it by a factor of at least 3. And, let’s not forget about more union workers, the pensions of which you will pay for. Forever. ••• The U.S. Senate has concluded that the attack on our compound in Benghazi, Libya, was “likely preventable.” So we now have an answer for the former secretary of state’s now infamous comment about the loss of life (“What difference, at this point, does it make?”): It was preventable. ••• We’re heavily inclined to agree with Dan Drexler, the Indiana state chairman of the Libertarian Party, who characterized Gov. Mike Pence’s State of the State speech last week as “nothing surprising.” We can’t (or won’t) disagree with his assessment that the speech was light on details, and we were just as curious about the employment numbers Pence cited, because he failed to benchmark them against the rest of the nation. We give Pence high marks for his comments on school choice, because we believe it is a parent’s right to have a dominant voice in the education of his or her child. Overall, though, it was incredibly bland to us. We don’t know the governor, but we find there is little about which to be overly enthused with this administration. Of course, we were spoiled by the tenure of former Gov. Mitch Daniels (who should have run for president, but that’s an old argument now), which was marked by swiftness, fiscal prowess and overall decisiveness. It’s early, and there still is time to impress, not that the good governor is losing a wink of sleep over our take.

Just when people thought it was over, the 2012-13 contract dispute between the Carmel Clay Education Association and the school district has found new legs. The contract negotiations began in August 2012, went to mediation, were derailed by an unfair labor practices lawsuit and eventually were sent to a fact-finder after Carmel teachers rejected the district’s “last best offer” contract.The fact-finder had determined that a contract the Carmel schools administration proposed should apply retroactively for the 2012-13 school year. The Indiana Education Employment Relations Board upheld the factfinder’s ruling in November 2013 and Carmel schools have since applied the contract. Now the teachers’ association is appealing the decision in Marion County Superior Court. The school district’s attorney, Hud Pfeiffer of Indianapolis law firm Faegre Baker Daniels, estimates the new appeal could take 12 to 18 months to resolve. One of the main issues at stake is significant – the inclusion of a salary schedule that is mandated by state law yet allowed to be absent in this particular contract by IEERB based on the definition of the word “schedule” found in Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, 11th edition from 2005. But the real winners might be the lawyers involved in this dispute and the subsequent contract dispute for 2013-14. Carmel schools said it already has paid out $248,079 to Pfeiffer’s firm at a rate of $460 per hour for his firm’s work on the two cases. Carmel schools receives a 20 percent discount off the firm’s standard rate. Craig Blume, director of legal services and field staff for the Indiana State Teachers’ Association, estimates ’his association has spent a large amount as well; although he didn’t have specific numbers he estimated if was likely half of what the district has spent because they used fewer lawyers. Blume said that Carmel was never intended to be a battleground, but that the dispute has yielded new case law and new legal interpretations that affect all teachers. And now that another case, known commonly as Nettle Creek, has yielded a positive result, he hopes the long process state law requires will turn in the favor of the teachers’ associations. Blume said, “I am optimistic for all teachers that the trial courts will provide some relief.”

Beauty sleeping Commentary by Terry Anker A favored cliché among the live-life-to-thefullest set – I’ll sleep when I’m dead – has always amused me. Yet my view has likewise been long conflicted. Surely, the time required to restore our corporal selves could be used in more productive endeavors. Napoleon claims to have slept very little. Edison, da Vinci, Jefferson and even Tesla are the same. Did the extra hours add up to their extra edge? Perhaps, but is sleep only about physical recovery? Sleep also feels good. It rewards a full day with an intentional end. It clears the mind and breaks through intellectual dead-ends even as it allows for vivid dreams and boundless imagination. Now that our boys are older, we have been blessed with the occasional lazy Saturday morning – the likes of which we haven’t really experienced since college. You know the type – waking up about the regular time to the sound of falling rain. After a quick glance at the alarm, with the momentary

flash that a deadline is being missed, we realize that the bell did not sound because it needn’t. This is one of those days without the farmer’s market, or a football game, or any of a litany of the sleepdepriving irritations of modern life. Nothing is on the calendar. The family is still asleep. The room is cool and the rain is rhythmic. So is this a day for the productivity of Napoleon or the whimsy of Sleeping Beauty? If time is at a premium, then is a long and restful sleep an indulgent extravagance, or even a sin? Or, are we fooling ourselves to forgo the stolen moments? Are 12 hours without sleep no more productive than eight hours of toil after a good night’s rest? Sleep might not make me pretty, but it does make me happy.

Actions speak louder than words Commentary by Danielle Wilson With all of the holidays and inclement weather over the past month, my husband Doo and I have spent a lot of time together humor in close quarters. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, but the proximity does make me wonder how we’ve made it this far without offing each other. I say that with a bit of snark and a ton of love, but honestly, I think someone up there was drinking the day he/she decided to make us soul mates. Take our “love languages,” for example. These are the ways people communicate and give and receive love to and from others. There are five total – gift giving, physical touch, quality time, words of affirmation and acts of service. I am without question an Acts of Service girl. You wanna demonstrate your love? Vacuum. I couldn’t care less if Doo brings me flowers or tells me I’m beautiful, and I definitely don’t want to spend all of my free time with him. (Mama needs her cave!) I also have major personal space issues, enough so that I am truly uncomfortable giving and receiving hugs, even from my own mom. And yet, whom did Fate decide to make my lifelong partner? A Physical Touch guy. Doo knows I love him when I give him back rubs, hold his hand and, choke, hug him. While scrubbing toilets and folding laundry totally do it for me (“I love the smell of Clorox in the morning!”), Doo needs physical affection to feel loved.

To compound matters, I am hyper-organized, punctual and admittedly, a tad bit controlling, while Doo is spontaneous, carefree and a pinch A.D.D. So even when he is trying to express his love, he is often derailed. Like the other day when he decided the basement storage room just had to be cleaned out. Normally, this would have been music to my ears, except that two weeks later, the finished part of the basement is still filled with tubs of Barbies, books, old weightlifting equipment, Easter decorations and miscellaneous vases. I really do NOT feel like giving out hugs at this moment. But opposites do attract, and I can’t imagine anyone else I’d rather be on this journey with. I guess the trick is to appreciate your partner for who he is, not for who you want him to be. Doo and I don’t always speak the same language, especially when trapped inside for days at a time with four children, and unfortunately, there’s no Rosetta Stone that’ll make it easier, but we’ll keep trying. So to whomever is up there having a laugh at our expense, I say, “Thank you. You’ve certainly made this marriage an interesting adventure!” Peace out.

Everything I bought my wife for Christmas had to be returned. Wrong size, wrong color, too expensive, too cheap. You name it, humor I blew it. On the other hand, I am keeping everything she got for me. Not because my wife has such exquisite taste (although she does), but because I totally destroyed the boxes when I opened the gifts. Generally, I am not good at opening things. The one exception is carryout pizza boxes. But closing the pizza boxes? No way. Here are several things I have trouble with: OPENING A PACKAGE OF MEAT: Or cheese, or a bag of pretzels, or anything that says EASY OPEN or TEAR HERE. I usually tear NEAR THERE, which doesn’t cut it. Actually, that’s exactly what I end up having to do. I cut the bag with a pair of scissors and put everything in a Ziploc bag (which, by the way, I am not very good at closing, either). OPENING REMARKS: At local charity events, I am often asked to make remarks to thank everyone for coming, for being so generous and in some cases for braving the bad weather. Over the years, this got kind of boring so I started making the closing remarks, instead. I say the exactly same things. But it’s too late to matter. OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT: Do I use Dick or Richard? Should I include my middle name? Do I put dashes in my Social Security number? What

OPENING MY FRONT DOOR: Usually, when we get home for the evening, I fiddle with the lock and my wife asks, “Are you sure that’s the right key?” Once when I took too much cold medicine by mistake, it wasn’t the wrong key; it was the wrong house. OPENING MY MOUTH: Mark Twain said it was better to be quiet and thought to be stupid than to speak up and remove all doubt. It’s a shame I didn’t read any Mark Twain until I was 22 years old. I could have saved myself a lot of trouble when I was a kid. OPENING THE DOOR FOR MY WIFE AT A RESTAURANT: Do I walk ahead and push the door open or linger behind and pull it back? Of course, it depends on which way the door opens — but I don’t know that until I get to the entrance. My wife always asks me why we eat at the same place so often. “Do you really like the food?” she inquires. No, but I remember which way the door swings.

Singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux will play Jan. 26 at the Palladium in Carmel in support of her new album The Blue Room. (submitted photos)

Madeleine Peyroux to bring silky vocals to Carmel By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

The only thing that matters is the song. So says singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux, who will grace the Pallatheatre dium’s stage on Jan. 26. Often referred to as one of the finest interpretative singers of the 21st century, Peyroux is touring in support of her sixth album, The Blue Room, an homage to Ray Charles’ seminal 1962 album, “Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music.” Several of the songs on The Blue Room are covers from Charles’ album, including “You Don’t Know Me,” “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Born to Lose” and “Bye Bye Love.” It also includes a delicate version of “Gentle on My Mind,” made famous by Glenn Campbell. Peyroux, a native of Athens, Ga., left school at the tender age of 15 to join a touring jazz and blues band. At the time, someone gave her some Billie Holiday records and simply told her to “learn the songs.” And so she did. The influence of Holiday’s languid, laid-back style is evident in Peyroux’s style today; her silky, chocolate vocals laze through notes and lyrics in a way that is at once relaxing and enticing. The Blue Room is a marked departure from Peyroux’s previous albums. The style is simple and more austere; just a touch of country twang infused with jazz, blues and R&B stylings. In previous recordings, her voice has been

airier, dwelling in a higher register with a hint of a French accent sneaking through in many songs. The Blue Room finds Peyroux exploring the very depths of her lower register and finding a grit that was not there before. Peyroux lived abroad for eight years; she currently resides in New York City. Although she has toured throughout the United States. and played in world-class concert halls, this is her first Indiana appearance and she is very excited about coming to the Palladium.

“I have been so fortunate to perform on some amazing stages both here in the U.S. and internationally,” Peyroux said. “I have not yet had the opportunity to play at the Palladium but I am looking forward to being there and experiencing such an extraordinary concert hall.” Peyroux will accompany herself on guitar, with musicians from “The Blue Room” lending support such as Jon Herington, guitar; Jim Beard, keyboards; Barak Mori, bass; Darren Beckett, drums and Sylvia D’Avanzo, first violin and concertmistress. D’Avanzo has engaged local players to round out the string quartet. Peyroux has toured internationally since her first album in 1996. Just weeks after her Palladium concert she will tour throughout New Zealand, Australia and China before returning to the U.S. to perform in a Paul Simon tribute at Carnegie Hall. And then it’s back across the pond for shows throughout Italy, France, Switzerland and Germany. If you happen to be a fan of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Joni Mitchell, Ray Charles, Bonnie Raitt or Edith Piaf, you will undoubtedly enjoy the song stylings of Madeleine Peyroux in this rare Midwestern appearance.

Theatre group to present ‘Tribute’ By Chris Bavender • editorial@youarecurrent.com

Bernard Slade’s play “Tribute” is now showing at the Carmel Community Playhouse through Jan. 26. It’s the story of Broadway theatre press agent Scotty Templeton, who has spent his life avoiding responsibility. But after he is diagnosed with leukemia, he must reconcile with the people he loves. At top of the list is his estranged son Jud. Directed by Danny Russel, the cast features Neal Eggeson as Templeton; Matthew Shadday as Jud; Tom Doman as Lou Daniels, Templeton’s boss and best friend; Joyce Pendleton as Templeton’s ex-wife Maggie Stratton; Kaylis Dyer as Sally Haines; Kristen Wilson as Hilary; and Monica Joyner as Dr. Gladys Petrelli, Templeton’s oncologist. “Carmel Community Players chose to do this show because the director, Danny Russel, proposed it to us as a play that would work well in our intimate setting, and would appeal to a broad audience,” said Rich Phipps, Carmel Com-

munity Playhouse president. “We think the audience will react with a mixture of laughter and sadness. It is difficult to say what’s larger in this play - laughs or lumps in the throat.” Russel credits the cast’s dedication and collaborative spirit with making the show work. “This has been an incredible cast to work with and our play is a literal valentine to the world of theatre,” Russel said. “This play will touch every bit of your emotions, and everyone can relate to the struggle between parent and son.” The play debuted on Broadway in 1978 with Jack Lemmon in the role of Templeton and was brought to film in 1980 with Lemmon again playing that role. “Tribute” • Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sundays Jan. 16 through 26 • Carmel Community Playhouse at Clay Terrace • 14299 Clay Terrace Blvd., Carmel • Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors 62 and older • For more information, call 815-9387 or visit www.carmelplayers.org.

It may be varicose veins

Commentary by Jeffery P. Schoonover

Restless Leg Syndrome affects as much as 15 percent of the general population and negatively impacts RLS their quality of life. Those with RLS experience irresistible urges to move their legs; a “creeping” feeling in their legs; persistent leg movement during sleep; or tingling, burning, aching or numbness in their legs. Symptoms of RLS are worse at night or during periods of relaxation, such as when a person is lying down during the day, and tend to improve with activity. The symptoms disrupt the sleep of not only RLS sufferers, but also their sleeping partners. The standard treatment for RLS is neurologic medication. Unfortunately, the available medications only relieve the symptoms; they do not cure the condition and must be taken long-term. An often-overlooked cause of RLS is venous insufficiency, which several studies indicate that as many as 22 percent of those with RLS also have. Venous insufficiency, or varicose vein disease, means the blood vessels’ valves do not work properly and allow some blood to flow backward and pool in the legs, which can, but does not always, result in bulging veins and symptoms such

as pain, swelling, tiredness, redness or restlessness. Edema, or swelling, that occurs with venous disease often lessens at night, which is believed to somehow cause the “creeping” sensation described by patients with restless leg syndrome. When restless legs occur with venous insufficiency, treating the varicose veins can significantly improve the RLS. A study published in the Journal of Phlebology reported that varicose vein treatment relieved RLS symptoms in 98 percent of patients with both RLS and venous disease, and 80 percent of those treated experienced long-term relief. Anyone who suffers from the symptoms of RLS should be evaluated for venous insufficiency, typically with a diagnostic ultrasound assessment. If varicose vein disease is present, a course of endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), sometimes combined with sclerotherapy, offers the best opportunity for improving the symptoms of RLS and possibly eliminating the need for medication.

Drivers sought for patient shuttle

was determined through feedback received from the hospital’s patient family advisory council. “We are extremely excited to implement the patient shuttle service as our first philanthropy funded program,” stated Tracy Miller, director of the Office of Philanthropy for IU Health North, Saxony and Tipton Hospitals. “Philanthropy supports our hospital’s mission of improving the health and wellness of our patients, families and community. We believe this shuttle program will advance that mission for all visitors.” Individuals interested in volunteering to drive the patient shuttle must be at least 25 years old and have a valid Indiana driver’s license. In addition to driving the shuttle, other hospital volunteer opportunities are available. To learn more or to begin the volunteer application process, contact volunteer coordinator Ann Sawyer at 688-2927 or asawyer@iuhealth.org.

Indiana University Health North Hospital is seeking volunteer drivers for its patient shuttle that will begin operating in April. The shuttle, volunteering a covered eight-seat golf cart, will be used to transport hospital and Medical Office Building patients from the parking lot to the building entrances. Volunteers are needed to drive the shuttle Mondays through Fridays for three-hour shifts. The patient shuttle program is the result of the first internal fundraising effort by the Office of Philanthropy, which was launched at IU Health North Hospital in July. IU Health North physicians and associates raised the funds internally to purchase the golf cart to provide the new patient transportation service.

DISPATCHES Surprising lung cancer facts – Although nine out of 10 cases of lung cancer result from smoking, a smaller percentage are caused by radon gas pollution and other chemical exposures such as uranium, arsenic, asbestos and air pollution. Other risk factors may involve a family history of lung cancer (even in nonsmokers). Also, people whose spouse smokes are 20 to 30 percent more likely to develop lung cancer than those married to nonsmokers. - www.webmd.com

How to boost happiness - Feeling down in the dumps this winter?

Think back a year ago, when politicians in Washington were in the grip of one of their nowfamiliar “fiscal cliff” standoffs. planning As has become customary, the theater of brinksmanship kept everyone guessing until a last-minute resolution was reached. “The Economist” magazine’s tone about 2013’s prospects was skeptical. “Although investors are not as complacent as they were heading into 2000 or 2007, say, it is still hard to believe this will be a bumper year for returns,” said Buttonwood’s Jan. 5, 2013 column. It’s easy to see from this example that many investors might have taken fright at the developments around the turn of the year and sought to trim their exposures to risky assets because of what media pundits were saying. That would have been a shame because, as of early December 2013, many global equity markets were notching record-breaking years. As the year ended, plenty of gloomy stories still filled the newspapers — including some about ongoing speculation on what happens when the U.S. Federal Reserve begins tapering its monetary stimulus program. This isn’t to say these stories are necessar-

ily incorrect. Most of them accurately reflect the sentiment prevailing at the time they were written and the uncertainty about the future. But you can do little about that as an individual investor. Investing is about what happens next. We don’t know what happens next, which is why we diversify. Anyone who says he can tell you what is going to happen next is lying to you. Making drastic allocation changes to a portfolio after the fact is akin to slamming the stable door after the horse has left. Bottom line: Are you looking through the windshield of opportunity or the rearview mirror of past performance? And think about this: If any of the gurus who regularly appear on financial TV or in the newspaper really had a crystal-clear view of the future, why would he bother sharing it with the world? It makes more sense to focus on what’s within your own control.

DISPATCHES No more cash for stolen gold - Precious metal dealers, commonly referred to as “cash for gold” dealers, are now required to register annually with both the Indiana Secretary of State’s office and local law enforcement. “The new reporting requirements will help local law enforcement track stolen jewelry sold at cash for gold stores,” said Secretary Connie Lawson. “Requiring these merchants to report the jewelry they acquire gives local law enforcement a new tool to find stolen jewelry before it is melted down and gone forever.” Feds shut down medic-alert scam - Regulators have shut down a multimillion-dollar scam that they said duped seniors into turning over their credit card information in exchange for purportedly free medical-alert devices. The business blasted seniors across the U.S. and Canada with robocalls claiming that they were eligible to receive a free alert system purchased by a friend or relative. Once people agreed to receive the device, they were transferred to an operator who took their billing information and immediately began charging them for the service. Government officials said Monday that they received more than 66,000 complaints about the scam, which deliberately targeted the elderly. The scam was not connected with any manufacturers of medical alert devices. The makers of Life Alert had sued the business for using its “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” phrase on the robocalls. Federal Trade Commission officials said the business collected more than $13 million in commissions for selling the devices over two years, though it’s unclear how much money consumers actually lost. Many victims never received the equipment. SOURCE: MSN Money

Income-seeking investors don’t have to settle for yields - If you need to generate income, it’s entirely possible to get the best of both worlds: companies that pay steady dividends and deliver growth to boot. Here are three stocks that do just that: 1) CA Technologies is involved in a rapidly growing and necessary part of IT called data center infrastructure management. 2) CTC Media is a small-cap media company that has the backing of the Russian government due in part to its owner, Yury Kovalchuk’s, longtime friendship with President Vladimir Putin. 3) Tompkins Financial has shown profits, revenue and cash dividends for 59, 56 and 132 years, respectively, consecutively. The company has increased dividends for 24 straight years. TMP even skated through the financial crisis in 2008 and broke profit records, so no worries here when it comes to lending practices. SOURCE: MSN Money Healthcare plans attracting more older, less healthy people - People signing up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act’s federal and state marketplaces tend to be older and potentially less healthy, officials said Monday, a demographic mix that could cause premiums to rise in the future if the pattern persists. But officials expressed optimism that more young people will sign up in the months ahead. They said demand for insurance through the marketplaces was increasing sharply across all age groups and they said youth outreach will become more aggressive in the coming months.

Good taste and good design can only be felt

Commentary by Vicky Earley

The basic rules of proportion and scale are unchanging. They are reinterpreted according to the needs of the time. I like decorating simplicity and I believe in restraint. Above all, there should be harmony - of proportion, line, color and feeling. The most important element in decorating is the relationship between objects - in size, form, texture, color and meaning. None of these is in good taste in itself but only in relationship to where it has been placed and what purpose it is to serve. - Eleanor McMillen Brown Interior design is about the big picture and the big picture works when it is the result of a carefully planned compilation of elements and principles. Good taste, on the other hand, is the sum of one’s life experience and one’s exposure. A person can be born with a sense of design but the quality of good taste is gleaned, collected and polished. When we assume that good taste will trump a sense of good design, there is a very good chance that a space will appear haphazard and chaotic and be less than satisfactory. These principles are basic to all good design, must be treated with the respect they are due and should be altered only with care. Balance I have worked with a number of clients who

have insisted that symmetry is essential to livability in their space. In reality, they were saying that they crave one of the foundations to good design … balance. Balance can’t be measured … it is felt. It is the visual equilibrium of a room and is achieved by the placement of objects within the room according to visual weight. Shape, color and texture all help to determine the visual weight. Focus This refers to the direction the eye travels and remains as it first enters a space. A multitude of focal points in a room makes it quite uncomfortable because the eye has no place to rest. Good design guides the eye gracefully through the space with carefully selected focal points. Harmony This is achieved when the elements of a room work together to form a visually pleasing cohesiveness with the proper balance of variety and unity. Harmony in design is similarity of components or objects looking like they belong together. This unity can be defined as a design thread that tells a story from one element to another. This concept also applies to the mood of the pieces. Whimsy does not play well with elegance

even if all the other elements fall in line. Proportion and scale Ah, proportion and his best friend, scale. These are too often missed when furniture is purchased from a big-box furniture store. Thirty-foot ceilings are far different from nine-foot ceilings and this difference can be a road to disaster. Technically, proportion refers to how the elements within an object relate to the object as a whole, and scale relates to the size of an object compared to the space in which it is located. Rhythm The rhythm of a room controls the visual flow around the room. Rhythm allows the eyes to move around from one object to another and creates a harmonious atmosphere in a room. Just because someone with good taste might appreciate a painting, it does not mean that the same person could create such a piece of art. The same is true with good design.

Lucerne, Switzerland (Photo by Don Knebel)

‘A Bridge and a Tower in Lucerne’ Commentary by Don Knebel

Lucerne, Switzerland, is one of the most picturesque cities in a country known for picturesque cities. A medieval tower risTravel ing from the river is the country’s most photographed structure, a truss bridge spanning the river is the world’s oldest, and paintings hanging inside the bridge draw visitors from around the world. Ironically, all these idyllic images reflect Lucerne’s turbulent past. Lucerne is located where Lake Lucerne, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, flows into the Reuss River. In 1300, the town built a 112-foot tall octagonal tower in the river. Called Wasserturm (“Water Tower”), it was used as a torture chamber, likely for claimed heretics. Because the Water Tower was vulnerable to attack from the lake, in 1333 the city built a 600-foot long covered bridge crossing the river diagonally and connecting with the Water Tower. The “Kapellbrücke” (“Chapel Bridge”) is named for St. Peter’s Chapel at one end. Initially formed around a monastery, Lucerne was the largest Swiss city to hold out against the Protestant Reformation that swept, sometimes violently, through Switzerland in the late 16th century. In the early 17th century, to advance

the cause of Catholicism, the city council paid an artist to paint religious and historical scenes on triangular-shaped pieces of wood, many containing a written message. Eventually 158 paintings, each about six feet wide and three feet high, were mounted in the interior roof space of the Chapel Bridge. In 1666, recognizing the city’s continued loyalty, the Jesuits began building a large church near the south end of the bridge, its baroque design and twin onion domes visually rejecting the austerity of Swiss Protestantism. In 1993, fire destroyed much of the Chapel Bridge and more than 100 of its famous paintings. The bridge was meticulously restored and the surviving paintings remounted inside, some still showing fire damage. When you visit Lucerne, photograph the Water Tower and walk inside the Chapel Bridge to admire its remaining paintings. Then take a relaxing boat trip on Lake Lucerne and be grateful that towers are no longer built for torture and cities no longer battle each other over religious doctrine.

Master bath adds large shower and washer/dryer

Commentary by Larry Greene

Existing master bath: Located in the Wood Park neighborhood on the west side of Carmel, the home’s original blueprint for 1990s master bathroom improvement was dated and included a large soaking tub and small shower. “The room was just not functional for us,” stated the homeowner. “We had this huge tub we never used, and a washer and dryer located in the garage on the other side of the house. We decided to get rid of what we didn’t use and replace it with what we actually needed.” Design ideas: The homeowners looked to modern Scandinavian design for inspiration. “We wanted the clean, modern lines of that design, but good-quality materials and craftsmanship. We picked the sinks first, and they led the color scheme. Our designer helped us find the gray tile for the floor that tied into the sinks.” Washer and dryer added: The large soaking tub was replaced with a washer and dryer to give the homeowners the functionality they needed. The new shower footprint was also enlarged. Master bath details: To capture the modern feel, a semi-floating vanity was installed with Corian “Rain Cloud” countertops. Glass tile was placed inside the adjacent inset shelving. The modern styling was captured in the fixtures and

before & after

Final Results: In the end, the functionality of the new space won the homeowners’ hearts. “Our favorite part is having the washer and dryer nearby. The rain showerhead is also a favorite.” Incorporating aging-in-place design with grab bars, as well as luxurious elements such as a heated towel rack and a fan with a timer, completed the project for the homeowners.

towel bars as well, which came in a brushed nickel to compliment the soft grays in the space.

A focal point in the shower was a must for the homeowners. “We had seen the onyx look in a shower and knew we wanted something like it in ours. True onyx was cost-prohibitive, but our designer found tile with the look of real onyx.”
