Train collection comes to Arts & Design District By Maddie Scott •

Mr. Muffin’s Trains, a new addition to the Carmel Arts & Design District, at 1113 Third Ave. S.W., opened early last month. Mr. Muffin’s Trains is a train museum with one of the largest collections of modern “O gauge” model trains with an operating layout in the nation. Owner Stephen Nelson has invited anyone interested to bring their model trains for a test run at no cost, in addition to seeing his collection in action. Nelson’s love for trains began when he started working at a hobby store as a teenager. What was once just a dream has be-

come reality. According to Nelson, it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of his wife, Liz. “She was the one to show me how to use a staple gun,” Nelson said. Liz helped assemble almost every bridge and scenery piece at Mr. Muffin’s Trains. The museum is still a work in progress and the finishing touches are being finalized. “Mr. Muffin’s Trains is a place where anyone can come and share their love of trains,” Nelson said. Mr. Muffin’s Trains currently has no set hours. To find out when the museum is open, call 569-1999 or visit www.facebook. com/mrmuffinstrains.

Carmel smartphone app stalled in development By Nina Johnson • At the Jan. 7 Carmel City Council meeting, the Department of Community Services assured members that Carmel’s smartphone application will be completed this year. However, council member Ron Carter said he had been waiting to see progress on this project “for the last three years.” The mobile app was intended to simplify the reporting of local concerns such as potholes, high grass or weed growth and building code violations. Department director Mike Hollibaugh said a Nevada-based company, App-Order, was contracted in September 2011 with an October deadline. “We’ve not hit those deadlines,” Hollibaugh said. “We’re still far behind.” App-Order is a mobile applications developer whose website states, “You get your app in record time.” Clients include cities such as Phoenix, Ariz., and San Antonio, Texas. These cities use App-Order’s citizen reporting application to manage growing graffiti issues. The app uses the smartphone’s GPS to provide city departments an instant work order. Citizens can include a photo as evidence. “I’ve been able to track the history of the project,” Hollibaugh said. “We’re very close to

having the product.” Carter described a project that started as a customization of SalesForce customer relationship software. “That didn’t work out quite the way we wanted it to,” he said. “Early last summer … I asked the Department of Community Services when we were going to get a system that (citizens) could conveniently use to let the city know about concerns they might have,” Carter said. Carter encouraged the department to “get on the stick.” He had contacted App-Order and was told the app was finished and waiting for directions from community services. “Let’s get this out so we can use it,” Carter urged Hollibaugh, “So the citizens can use it.” Carmel organizations with established mobile apps include the Chamber of Commerce and Carmel Dad’s Club FC Soccer. These apps were developed by Carmel-based My Mobile Fans. Established in 2011, My Mobile Fans is a finalist for both the 2012 Tech Point MIRA Award for new media excellence and innovation and an Emerging Business of the Year award. Company founder Andy Dalton confirmed his team had the capabilities to create a citizenengagement app and would have been pleased to create one for Carmel.

The Morgan Stanley Mobile Internet Report predicts that mobile internet usage will surpass desktop internet usage by 2014. The report indicates that half of local searches are now performed on mobile devices. “One of our primary values is partnering locally and striving to only use local vendors,” Dalton said. In 2010, the town of Fishers launched a citizen engagement app through its web developer, eGov Strategies. Indianapolis-based eGov serves New Jersey as well as the city governments of Key West, Fla., Coronado, Calif., and Nome, Alaska. Fishers Communication Director Sarah Rittman explained the app was an extension of existing website services. A resident’s online review stated that repairs were made to a street sign within 24 hours of using the ReportIt! feature in Fishers’ app. In March 2011, Indianapolis added a similar citizen reporting feature to the RequestIndy app. The feature was an extension of existing services provided by Ohio-based Woolpert Inc.

Update Dog park still community priority COMMUNITY

By Christian Sorrell • According to Michael Klitzing, assistant director of Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation, a proposed dog park originally discussed in June is slated for completion next year. Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation is finalizing the Central Park North Campus Master Plan, according to Klitzing. The master plan will guide the future development of approximately 25 acres of Central Park located along 116th street, a portion of which will include the proposed dog park. The process of creating the plan began in August of last year and has incorporated information gathered from a series of focus groups including a variety of user groups, Carmel residents and community leaders. In addition, four public meetings were held last year to gauge residents’ interest in the potential uses for the park. After the anticipated adoption of the plan by the park board next month, Klitzing says that Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation will then be able to establish a specific timeline for the construction of the dog park. While it is possible that the park’s construction could begin this year, Klitzing anticipates that the park will not be completed until 2014. Construction plans for the dog park were not available at the time of publication as a result of

to the ongoing planning process. Klitzing emphasized that the park was still a priority for the community and one of the desired amenities on the Central Park campus.

City to replace misspelled street signs By Christian Sorrell • A number of misspelled street signs throughout Carmel will soon be replaced by the Carmel Street Dept. Several signs throughout Carmel’s Bayhill subdivision between 116th and 126th streets along Gray Road included one or more spelling inconsistencies despite many of the mailboxes on nearby homes listing the correct spelling. Misspellings include “Stone Bay Circle” instead of the correct “Stoney Bay Circle” and “Jefferies Place” as opposed to “Jeffries Place.” Nearby Woodbrook Lane also saw an incorrect sign replacement reading “Wood Brock Lane.” While the misspelling may seem minor in some cases, residents in the area have expressed concern over the inconsistencies, afraid that it may be affecting mail delivery and visitors to the neighborhood and has lead to general confusion over a home’s exact address. According to Dave Huffman, Carmel Street Dept. commissioner, a number of factors are to blame in the spelling mistakes. Some errors were made by the sign manufacturer after Huffman the street department placed a correct order while others were made due to inconsistencies between the correct street names and the map being used by the street department. To avoid misspellings in the future,

Instead of "Jefferies Place," this sign should read "Jeffries Place." (Submitted photo)

Huffman said in an e-mail that the department was working on a new, more accurate street sign inventory and map. According to Mayor Jim Brainard, last year’s signage replacement came after a new federal law began to require a six-inch sign, rather than the former four-inch standard size. Additional signs will be replaced throughout the city during the coming year as funding is granted.

Reflecting on the life of James O’Donnell Commentary by Jeff Worrell What I remember most about James O’Donnell was how appreciative he was due to your response. He had just finished riding in the CarmelFest Parade on a bright, sunshiny July 4th in Carmel. He was in an open air, vintage automobile waving to the crowd and clearly moved by the tidal appearing before him. As his car inched along the two-and-a-half-mile route, on both sides of the street the people rose to their feet; clapping, waving and shouting words of adoration. A heartfelt, emotional outpouring passed forward along the parade route from person to person which meant so much to not just Mr. James O’Donnell, United States Navy and USS Indianapolis Survivor, but to his friends, family and the other survivors with him that day. Mr. James O’Donnell is one of 317 men to survive the sinking of the USS Indianapolis on a secret mission and sadly, he passed away two weeks ago at the age of 92. He lived in Indianapolis and served as an Indianapolis Firefighter for 35 years before retiring. Along with the other men in the water, he survived 4 days in the ocean, fending off sharks and the nasty ef-

fects of salt water. Mr. O’Donnell appeared in the CarmelFest Parade two years in a row, the second time braving the rain. The year before the temps were in the 90s, but approaching the age of 90 himself did not stop him. Never a complaint even though it was getting harder for Mr. O’Donnell to move about like he used to. He believed it to be his duty to represent the men of the USS Indianapolis who did not return to port. I was moved by the way Carmel honored all of the USS Indianapolis survivors that day. And, I want to believe that at least a few kids turned to their parents O'Donnell and wanted to know who that guy was. If that happened just once, then another generation of Americans will understand a little better the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for the United States of America. James O’Donnell was one of those men and the only reason why we got up on July 4th to do more than just watch a parade. Jeff Worrell is a member of the Carmel Redevlopment Commission.

young,) we played a lot, and we would put two shoes down as the goal or some players would lay down their shirts as the goal, and we played. Obviously, you would argue about whether a shot was too high or too low when you scored because you didn’t have a post!” In the last year, Ozdemir hired Peter Wilt, former president and general manager of the Chicago Fire, to lead the Wilt team’s initiative. On the day of

the press conference, Wilt was formally brought on as team president, a popular move amongst many American soccer fans. The team is slated to play its first two seasons at IUPUI’s Carroll Track and Soccer Stadium in downtown Indianapolis with plans for a standalone, permanent stadium thereafter. The downtown venue consistently was voted as the best location for the team by local fans of the professional soccer initiative. A number of renovations are planned for the stadium in hopes of creating a more intimate and soccer-specific atmosphere.

Starting in spring of 2014, Indianapolis soccer fans will have another reason to cheer when the city’s professional soccer team kicks off its inaugural season. News of the team came at a press conference last week at which Ersal Ozdemir, president and CEO of Keystone Construction Corp., a member of Current Publishing’s board of directors and a Carmel resident, announced his ownership. “I believe the world is getOzdemir ting global. In the United States, soccer has evolved significantly during the last 15 years. I have seen the improvements in my short lifetime, and at some point as it continues to grow, we feel that the sport is going to even catch on in a bigger way at both a spectator and a professional level,” Ozdemir said. “We are trying to be a part of that growth.” The currently unnamed team will be formed as a member of the North American Soccer League, a Division II Professional League including 12 other teams – the Atlanta Silverbacks, the Carolina RailHawks, FC Edmonton, Fort Lauderdale Strikers, Minnesota Stars FC, NASL Virginia, New York Cosmos, Ottawa, Puerto Rico Islanders and the San Antonio Scorpions. Although Ozdemir did say a franchise fee was required to become part of the NASL, he declined to comment on any of the franchising details. The new team is slated to play its first season in 2014 and will play host 15 home games. “In the rest of the world, soccer is extremely popular, almost to the point of being a fanatic passion. Everybody plays soccer. It doesn’t matter how good you are,” Ozdemir said. “I played through middle school, high school and played in college (at Purdue University) at the club level. I still play occasionally.” Ozdemir, a native of Turkey and lifelong soccer fan, has been looking to invest in a professional soccer team for the last 10 years. “Soccer is not an elite sport. You see people in parts of Africa making balls out of nothing. Many people do not have balls or jerseys or cleats. In South America, people take rubber tree leaves and make balls. It is a very accessible sport. It doesn’t require anything besides something that looks like a ball,” Ozdemir said. “(When I was

Retrofitting Carroll Stadium – Professional soccer team organizers Ersal Ozdemir and Peter Wilt have planned a number of changes to be made between now and the beginning of the 2014 season. Changes include the removal of roughly 5,000 seats, moving seating behind the goals and adding wind screens, tents and other amenities in certain areas of the facility. According to Wilt, these changes are aimed at creating a more intimate and soccer-specific atmosphere with roughly 7,000 seats remaining. Funding for the retrofit has yet to be determined. Ozdemir emphasized the importance of Hamilton County facilities and residents as part of the team’s success during the next several years. Wilt said the team was brainstorming ideas to make use of Westfield’s Grand Park sports campus as well as ways to embrace youth soccer teams and families throughout all of Central Indiana. Grand Park, which Ozdemir referred to as “a Mecca,” could play host to several of the team’s exhibition games and training sessions after its completion in 2014. “Carmel and other Hamilton County communities are the core strength of soccer in the state. If you are going to put a target in the Midwest, Carmel is ground zero for that type of youth soccer support,” Wilt said. “The only development academy for youth soccer in the state of Indiana is in Carmel.” According to Wilt, the team will be looking to create as many connections as possible with local youth soccer teams. While specific programs still are being discussed, Wilt gave theoretical examples including an adopt-a-player program and soccer camps coached by the team’s players. Both Ozdemir and Wilt expressed interest in creating a grassroots campaign for the team. Part of that campaign allows fans to vote on a team name, team logo and team colors on the team’s newly launched website.

Flu Season

It is our position that the flu epidemic should be taken seriously. This influenza season, 21 Hoosiers have died from flurelated illnesses. A flu shot is recommended for everyone six months old and above, in particular children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems should be vaccinated. If you are diagnosed with flu, stay home for the exception of seeking medical treatment. Germs are easily spread in the workplace, church, school, grocery stores, shopping malls and other public places. It is also particularly important to practice good hand hygiene to assist in preventing the spread of germs. According to the Centers for Disease Control, hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice while washing your hands if you need a timer. Cough and sneeze into a tissue and then throw the tissue away. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu. While not scientifically proven as a cure for the flu, a home remedy in the form of Matzo ball soup from your favorite delicatessen is guaranteed to at least warm the soul if you are battling the sniffles.

Dark and stormy Commentary by Terry Anker “It was a dark and stormy night.” No wait. “It was a very dark and very stormy night.” Charles Shultz’s beloved character, the beagle named Snoopy, would begin banging out on his vintage typewriter as he sat atop his doghouse and imagined himself to be the great American novelist. The canine boasted a highly developed sense of imagination routinely assuming the mantle of a World War I flying ace or erudite academic attempting to bring along his hapless, if loyal, friend the yellow bird, Woodstock. Certainly he showed great devotion to his owner, Charlie Brown, and spirit of joy whenever it was supper time, oh supper time, but Snoopy always impressed me in his willingness to jump into everything he did with both feet. It didn’t work out every time. In fact, it often didn’t proceed as planned, but he found the courage and optimism to charge ahead boldly, seemingly unaffected by the concerns of Woodstock or the admonishments of his nemesis Lucy Van Pelt.

If every fantastic journey begins with a step and every great book begins with a single sentence, then why is it that we so resist making an initial move? Does fear of dashing our own self-created expectations prevent us from ever trying in the first place? Or can we legitimately point to those around us for creating an environment wherein we fear error so much that no action is pursued? Snoopy may have never managed to produce the great American novel but his willingness to try (and fail) helped make him an icon. There is little room today for error. We fear costly mistakes and routinely sacrifice our personal freedoms grasping at an elusive world without risk. Can a responsible person push the boundaries of self-definition? Maybe we should ask, how can we not? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@

Imagination is the highest kite that one can fly. - Lauren Bacall Current in Carmel

With Mike Pence’s inauguration as the 50th governor of Indiana only just concluded, the Columbus Republican launched headlong into signing a series of executive orders. While seeking to replace outgoing Gov. Mitch Daniels, Pence campaigned strongly on a platform favoring job creation and economic growth, which we heartily endorsed. And so with the ink on his new business cards barely dry, what did he do to further that effort? He put forth a budget that aims to achieve on his promises while reducing taxes. We like that. The budget keeps spending a full percentage point below inflation, and we like that, too, although we’d prefer deeper cuts – but this is a work in progress. In addition, the budget maintains adequate reserves to protect us against further economic downturn. His budget aims to invest $18 million, though, across two years for adult workforce improvement, and reduce personal income tax by 10 percent. His office stated: “This will put $500 million directly back into the Hoosier economy and permanently reduce the tax burden on most small and mid-sized businesses and family farms. The move will let Hoosiers keep more of their hard-earned dollars to save, spend or invest as they see fit,” which is exactly as it should be. We consider his effort at fiscal management a laudable start, but it’s only a start. We’d like to see his subsequent efforts be even more aggressive on reducing spending; it’s an initiative that’s never too late to initiate. ••• Hillary Rodham Clinton, the outgoing secretary of state, is going to testify Wednesday about the horrific events that unfolded in Benghazi.

It’s time for a new scapegoat Commentary by Christian Sorrell

With President Barack Obama’s recent announcement of 23 different gun control-focused executive actions, violence and its causes are back in the national discussion. Examining violence in America is something that needs to be done, especially as we see more and more extreme violent scenarios taking place. I have been disappointed to see video games, re-entering the national dialogue. In a press conference last month, the NRA misdirected the blame some were placing on guns, instead partially blaming violent video games and films. One of President Obama’s 23 executive actions calls for a Center for Disease Control study examining the relationship between violence and “media images” including video games. I have always lived with video games. After playing Super Mario Bros. with my father when I was five, it has been one of my primary hobbies. I have been playing video games of all kinds, including violent video games, since I was in elementary school. I have never even thrown a punch rarely have I ever felt the desire. There was never a moment in my life where I believed a single thing I experienced in a video game to be real. That said, looking at one person is not an accurate barometer of how video games could be affecting America’s youth. Maybe that is Obama’s rationale in calling for a $10 million

CDC study on the matter. Interestingly enough, the U.S. Dept. of Justice already funded a $1.5 million Harvard study examining video game violence seven years ago. While the popularity and accessibility of violent video games have increased over the years, youth violence, has plummeted dramatically. In cases like the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting, the media was quick to blame violent video games when in fact, the shooter, was never seen by his roommate playing a video game, something other students found strange. A U.S. Secret Service study examined 37 non-gang and non-drug related school shootings and stabbings between 1974 and 2000 and found that there was no accurate profile for perpetrators of violence. In fact, only one in eight shooters showed any interested in violent video games. How many more government studies will it take before organizations and politicians decide the facts are unavoidable and that violent video games do not create violent children? Since reasonable and informed examination and debate seems to be impossible, I say it’s time for a new scapegoat. Christian Sorrell is the managing editor of Current in Carmel.

Parenting as celestial payback Commentary by Danielle Wilson You know what I find annoying? The way people without children criticize parents. As if they even have a clue about what they are saying! But you know what I find hilarious? The way those same people always end up being the craziest parents around. Take one of my good friends. She’d frequently make snide comments about my parenting: “You spoil your kids;” “You need to relax more;” “You shouldn’t be freaking out over daycare.” Most of the time it was all in good fun, but occasionally she’d touch a nerve. And let’s be honest, no mother wants to be told (even if it’s true) that she’s not doing a good enough job. Until you’ve been in the trenches yourself, keep your mouth shut! Well, folks, my friend had her first baby a few months ago, and after having spent a few days with her new little family, I am thrilled to report that she did not escape celestial payback for her pre-pregnancy words. She has become the classic first-time mom, complete with anal-retentiveness out the wazoo, hypochondriacal tendencies that result in absolutely no one being able to touch her daughter without CDC biohazard clearance, and a child who has no self-soothing abilities whatsoever because she is never allowed to cry. Love it! Seriously, I can’t tell you how much pleasure I take in watching her do the exact same things 14 | January 22, 2013

she used to criticize me for, and consequently, suffer a tiny bit because of it. She and her husband still can’t figure out how their DINK lifestyle slipped out the back door without so much as a good bye. Ooh, I know! They spend an inordinate amount of time in the bottle preparation department (short of an actual autoclave, I’m not sure they could get those things any more sterile), hold the baby 24-7, and rely too heavily on the Internet and lunatic bloggers for their decision-making. Basically, she does the same idiotic, controlling things Doo and I did when we had our first. I love my friend, and she is truly a fantastic mom. But thank you, Karma/Fate/Mother Nature/Whoever for making my year! She finally understands how difficult parenting is, and how important receiving love and support from everyone, even those without children, is to surviving the adventure that is motherhood. So to those of you not yet calling yourselves a mommy or daddy, be careful what you say. What goes around comes around, and this time, it’ll involve diaper rash and lactation consultants. Peace out.

I should have waited Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Now that the holidays are over, all the really good bargains are starting to appear on TV, especially on the cable networks. I’m a little skeptical of some of the products, but you’d have to be crazy not to buy the NordicTrack Silver Dollar Pancake Pan, which not only makes perfect flapjacks every time, but can also be used as a spare fly wheel for your exercise bike. Here’s an item that seems too good to be true: an ear wax vacuum for only $9.95, plus the second one is free (we do have two ears): just pay shipping and handling. You have not heard about this? IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOUR HEARING? If so, you definitely need one. At first, I wasn’t going to buy it, but then I saw a guy on the commercial trying to use a Q-tip in his ear and suddenly he started screaming in pain. It scared the heck out of me. I was also very impressed that the device had 16 tips with different colors for each family member. Of course, if you have a household with that many children, someone in the marriage is having a hard time hearing, “Enough, already.” Mary Ellen was annoyed that I fell for their sales pitch. She said vacuuming my ears should not be a priority when I haven’t run the Hoover under my

computer desk in four years. The Stretch Genie also looks like a great idea. For just $7.95 you get a spray that expands leather and some synthetic fibers. You put it in your shoe and it goes from a C to a D. I think someone was spraying this stuff on my report card back in grade school. Over the years I have been very complacent about the lint in my appliances, so when I saw the Lint Lizard for sale, I was intrigued. This device easily attaches to your vacuum and then sucks the debris out of your clothes dryer vent. I rushed to order it and when I opened the package you can imagine my disappointment when it was exactly the same product as the Ear Vac. My big mistake was ordering so quickly, because when I checked the Internet the next day, I saw this testimonial: “The tubing is too stiff. It does not fit into the lint filter. The tubes fell apart. I never got out a single clump of lint. I will happily give my Lint Lizard to anyone who wants it.” Rats! I could have gotten a free one.

And the Copper Cob goes to ... who cares? Commentary by Mike Redmond It is Awards Season again – or as I like to think of it, that special time of year when Mike once again finds out he is WAY out of touch. The World Wide Interweb Thingie is alive with chatter about who is going to win which statuette at what show – Oscar, Emmy, Tony, Golden Globes, Grammy, Granny, Silver Sow, Copper Cob, Dean Martin Roast or Hee-Haw Salute. It’s a long list. I might have missed a couple. During these months when celebritroids start handing awards to one another, I find myself completely baffled by the reactions. Not theirs. I mean regular people’s. Folks who have absolutely nothing to do with entertainment (other than as consumers) get all worked up about these prizes and I really don’t know why. It’s not like fans get statuettes if they back the winner. (Although if that were the case, I think I’d want an Oscar. It’s just the right shape and size to crack black walnuts.) But oh, the drama. And I’m not talking about on the screen. I mean online: “If Django Unchained doesn’t get best picture, there is no justice.” “The Master was robbed! Robbed!” Wow. The way people carry on about these things on the message boards and such, you’d think it was politics. Or sports. Or something that mattered.

Here’s the response I used when I was a music critic and was forever having to hear from people who disagreed with my assessments of their favorite artists by citing album sales figures and awards won: Whoop-ti-do. There’s no real way to judge artistic merit other than personal opinion. Nobody has invented a Merit-O-Meter that can impartially gauge the worth of a film, play, television show or album. It all rests with the individual, as it should – what has great merit for you might have very little for me, and usually does. And as far as sales are concerned, that usually is the result of marketing more than the product itself. What you’re left with, then, is a popularity contest, not all that far removed from a student council election. And so, my friends, as we head into Awards Season, I have decided that my choice for best movie is Lincoln: First, because I loved it and second, because of all the movies that are up for awards, it’s the only one I could be persuaded to see. I hope it wins a whole bunch of nutcrackers. And a Copper Cob. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ or P.O. Box 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244.

Andy Newell

Casey Harshbarger By Mark Johnson • Drummer Ben Williams remembers clearly a life-changing moment. “I was 16 years old, and a friend of mine came by my house,” he said. “He had his car window down and he was playing ‘Sunshine of Your Love’ by Cream. And I just remember hearing that song and thinking that I had never heard a song with a drum so deep and such a cool riff. It really opened my ears, opened my mind, opened my eyes. I went out and bought a Cream album that day!” In the two decades since that musical revelation, Williams, a Noblesville resident, has never lost focus on music, never ceased to build on that musical legacy, nor closed his eyes, ears, or mind to the possibilities of new frontiers in music. “After I started listening to Cream, I wanted to find out all I could about [Cream guitarist] Eric Clapton,” he said. “Through Clapton, I got into Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. I got books on all those artists. I wanted to know everything there was to know about them. That was when I came across Robert Johnson.” Johnson, the legendary and enigmatic bluesman, of the 1920s and ‘30s, continues to influence Williams to this day. As members of the blues/rock power trio, the Warrior Kings, Williams, guitarist Casey Harshbarger, and bassist Andy Newell wove that influence into their self-titled, debut disc. The track, “Robert Johnson’s Revolver,” is a direct homage to the iconic blues figure. “That song is really about a traveling bluesman and all of the dangers he would face on the road. A lot of them would carry revolvers 16 | January 22, 2013

Warrior Kings on a mission of music for protection, to keep them from getting stiffed, or getting robbed,” Williams said. Moreover, that song is part of a larger metaphor for the struggles and challenges that people face in contemporary times.

“The lyrical themes deal with the life of an everyman,” Williams further explained. “Topics of love, lust, war, carnage and the need to understand the hard questions, and even the hard answers this world gives us.” Yet, the beginning of the Warrior Kings is not a story of challenges or adversity, but rather a coming together of like-minded individuals. Williams and Harshbarger were introduced when both were playing at Northview Church in Carmel. “I just pulled out my guitar and played a song for him, and he really liked it. We just knew right away that we wanted to form a band together,” Williams said. “We’re the same age, we have the same taste in music, we’re both fathers with two children. We have a great working relationship. And Andy is the icing on the cake. He’s a real prodigy. For such a young guy, he is really in demand! He stays busy!”

Benjamin Williams All three shared one key element: the desire to push musical boundaries with blistering blues, rock and jazz blending seamlessly into loose jams and tight playing. “The album to me is a new twist on the fusion of the blues, rock and the psychedelic,” Williams said of the disc. “We wanted to avoid cliché and predictability … That’s why we dig playing live. We are always looking to outdo each other. When we jam, we turn a four minute song into a seven or eight minute song. It’s not monotonous. One of our goals is to do a live album.” Harshbarger and Williams both give music lessons and want to pass on that knowledge of and hunger for music, just like the older guys passed it on to them. “We are on a mission to please the listener’s ear. We want to continue the blues/rock, and we believe our music has the power to do it,” Williams said. “My hope is the formula changes that people aren’t afraid to challenge their minds, branching out into new music. Going out listening to bands perform new music and perfect their craft, there’s nothing like it.”

End of Watch • R, 109 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd File “End of Watch” under the list of best movies of 2012 that you probably haven’t seen … or maybe even heard of. This terrific, gritty and surprisingly funny portrait of a pair of Los Angeles Police Dept. officers patrolling South-Central Los Angeles is one of the best cop dramas in recent memory. Michael Peña and Jake Gyllenhaal play Mike and Brian, a pair of young cowboys who, as one boasts “get into more capers in a single deployment shift than most cops do in their entire career.” Writer/director David Ayer fills his movie with lots of harrowing scenes of fistfights, gunplay and other brutality. Yet it’s the humanity of the relationship between these two guys that

breathes life into the film. They crack jokes on each other, make fun of their ethnic heritage and exchange advice about the women in their lives. But when the gangbangers bring the heat, they instantly shift into soldier mode, becoming one mind with two guns. Ayer often films from a first-person perspective down the barrel of a pistol, putting the audience right in the thick of it. Don’t miss this one.

Riverview Hospital’s new cardiovascular equipment is saving lives By Robert Herrington

Doctors, nurses and children cut the ribbon opening Community Hospital North’s new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit last Tuesday. (Photo submitted)

Community Hospital North opens new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Community Hospital North officially opened its new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit last Tuesday. The expansion increases access to critical care services for Central Indiana children. An extension of Community North’s 20room children’s unit, the PICU is a state-ofthe-art critical care unit that provides advanced, life-saving treatments and technologies that help provide care for infants, children and adolescents who become severely ill or injured. It is the only location on the Indianapolis northeast side offering critical care for children. The PICU team is led by Vin Gupta, M.D., who is board certified in both pediatrics and pediatric critical care medicine through the American Board of Pediatrics. According to Gupta, the new unit will allow physicians to treat children with acute illnesses, serious infec-

tions, drug overdoses, severe seizures, diabetic complications, or those involved in an accident or a near-drowning incident. “Utilizing equipment designed to meet the size-specific needs of the pediatric patient, our physicians are dedicated to the care of our hospitalized children,” he said. Community North’s President Barbara Summers said the growing amount of pediatric services the hospital offered represented its mission to serve the northern Indianapolis region. “It is important that we provide opportunities for patients and families to stay in the community,” Summers said. “Families facing the stress of having a critically ill child will no longer have the added burden of long, expensive commutes. This is one more way we can help keep our sickest children close to home while receiving the best care available in our region.”

A chance opportunity helped save the life of Hamilton County’s Greg O’Connor. The Noblesville resident also serves as the Riverview Hospital Foundation Board Chairman, which is why he decided to have a heart scan done with the hospital’s new 128-slice CT scanner even though he felt fine. “Since I was on the foundation board, I thought I should know about this if we are trying to promote it,” he said. “They place three electrodes on your chest, run you in and out of the magnet three times and your images appear on the screen. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes.” While he was in the waiting area for his results, O’Connor learned his calcium level numbers were “not quite where they should be.” “For a lot of people it’s 0 to 50 or 100, mine were north of 500. It was like warning signs and lights were going off,” he said. After having two stress tests done and another scan of his heart with radioactive dye, it was determined that O’Connor did not have any blockages in his arteries, but his high score meant there was potential for damage. O’Connor said that following his tests and results, he made a conscious decision to eat healthier, work out, lift weights and strengthen his core muscles. In the year following his com-

mitment, O’Connor lost 50 pounds, decreased his blood pressure from 140 over 90 to 110 over 80, and his blood sugar levels are normal. “I dealt with the situation before it became a real serious event,” he said. “I’m a walking testament that once you get on that path you can’t stray too far off. It was a wake-up call for my life.” Riverview Foundation Executive Director Trish Oman said the 128-slice CT scanner had been lifesaving. “We’ve had people come in and there have been things that they were able to detect not otherwise detectable because they had the scan done,” she said. Oman said there had been occasions when patients go straight from the 128-slice CT scanner to open heart surgery. “One guy had a scan because he just got on Medicare and was advised to get a test. After the test the man got in his car and headed home. Doctors called him and told him to turn around and get back here. He had an aneurism,” she said. “It’s a wake-up call for a lot of people.” Oman said the foundation purchased the CT scanner in October 2010 and the digital imaging catheterization lab in May 2008. The new technology combines the two to better serve doctors and patients. “There isn’t another hospital that has that combination in Indiana,” Oman said.

Body Beauty

Am I nude during a tummy tuck surgery? Commentary by Barry Eppley Q: Is a tummy tuck performed on me while I am nude, and will I be allowed to wear socks? If I am not naked, what type of underwear should I wear? A: While it does require the removal of enough clothing to expose the tummy area for surgery, be assured you will not be stripped naked from head to toe for a tummy tuck. But no underwear is allowed. Your clothes will be replaced by a surgical gown before you go to the operating room. Q: I had a septorhinoplasty about three months ago (nasal deviation, reduction of tip, and removal of hump on nasal bridge). I’m afraid my question is a bit embarrassing – is kissing my girlfriend OK at this stage? I worry that it’s going to disrupt the cartilage and affect the final result. Can anything move or change shape at this stage? A: While kissing may have its own unique risks, damaging a rhinoplasty is not one of them. I suggest that you approach your significant other at a 45 degree angle, making sure you do not encounter direct nose-to-nose contact because it may still be a little sensitive three months after surgery. Q: I’m considering a chin implant to

correct my weak chin, however I am a tad worried that chin augmentation might hamper my ability to play the violin. Will I still be able to hold the violin correctly after a chin implant? If so, how long should I wait before applying direct pressure on my chin by holding my instrument? A: Good question since the end of the violin does abut up against the chin. In the short term, I suspect this is going to be uncomfortable, perhaps for up to a month after surgery. But beyond that … play away! Q: I have excess skin covering my upper eyelids. I was wondering whether there is a natural eyelift exercise instead of surgery to get rid of the hooded area. A: While there are numerous non-surgical treatments today for slowing down the effects of aging, none of them can actually remove or tighten excess skin on the eyelids. And ‘exercising the face’ is most likely to cause the reverse effect … making wrinkles and causing the skin to loosen and sag more quickly.

Move the Needle: First impressions Commentary by CJ McClanahan

As much as I enjoyed an uptick in the temperatures last week, the warm weather also brought something I dislike a great deal – water in my basement. This past Saturday at 10:30 p.m., during a downpour, we discovered a ton of water in our basement. In addition, because our sump pump had stopped working, the water was rising fast. We contacted a plumber and water restoration company hoping they could help us out. After the plumber left at 1:15 a.m., my wife and I sat and waited for the water restoration company to arrive. The doorbell rang at 1:30 a.m. We were both exhausted, it was pouring outside, and we had just written a big check to install a new sump pump. I was not in a good mood. I was greeted by two guys in their 30s who looked like they were in the middle of a long night. They were soaked, and I can only imagine how badly they wanted to go home and get dry. They smiled, thanked us for the opportunity, and quickly convinced us that the process would be painless, and they would be gone as quickly as possible. My disposition changed in a second. No 22 | January 22, 2013

longer was I as frustrated with the situation. Instead, I was grateful that we were able to get people in the house before there was a foot of water in the basement. The change in my mood happened within 30 seconds. That’s the power of a first impression. Most people think that they have minutes, hours or even days to influence the opinion of others. What research has clearly indicated is that people form an opinion almost instantly. What’s more important is that this initial judgment is extremely hard to change. Luckily, making a positive first impression is fairly easy. Always start by putting yourself in the shoes of the person you are meeting (or speaking to on the phone) and ask yourself – “What do they expect?” Then simply smile and exceed those expectations. As with most things in life, intellectually speaking this is easy. All you need to do is choose to execute. Choose wisely.

Believing the best Commentary by David Cain

Lance Armstrong changed course and admitted to doping. After years of vigilant defense of his innocence, he drastically and dramatically changes course. After years, it looks like he was more of a LieStrong than a LiveStrong guy. Like O.J. Simpson, most people know on some level that with such firsthand evidence, he was probably guilty. However, within all of us there is a natural instinct to believe other people. It’s the underlying principle of ratings, reviews, word of mouth marketing and anything that leverages the people factor. It’s also a natural instinct to believe the first thing you hear. The O.J. Simpson trial started the same way as the Lance Armstrong saga, a firm and definitive statement of innocence followed by an unwavering commitment to that statement or claim. Once the statement is made, despite a

video of the person committing the crime, most people want to believe they didn’t do it. For products and services a similar phenomenon exists. The first to the market, the first to make the claim generally grabs a share of the market that is challenging for an opposing view to overtake. The key, however, is to make sure the statement is bold and it’s the first. And, for longevity it should be true! It’s hard to recover from bold lies and a purposeful deceit. Still, the lesson holds true, people believe people, and we all go against our instincts to believe the best in people. The best marketing is, therefore, arguably, people.

Grammar Guy

There’s contraction misuse afoot Commentary by Jordan Fischer

Question: I thought I’d feed you a couple ideas for future columns based on some of my own pet peeves. The first is actually a vocabulary issue, not grammar. But it involves the use of the word “myriad.” I think most people think they’re sounding really smart when they use this word, even when they’re using it incorrectly. The second is much more pervasive and much more egregious in my opinion. That is the use of “there is” (or one of its variations) when they should be using “there are.” For example: “There’s lots of opportunities out there for new graduates.” What bothers me most about this misuse is that it’s so common among people, like business executives, public officials and others who you’d think would have had enough education to know better. – Chris Painchaud, Carmel Answer: The incorrect use of “there’s” is pretty common, isn’t it? It’s just so easy to say. You’ve hit the nail on the head, though. For plural objects, as in “opportunities” above, the correct phrase would be “there are.” Even our loyal, if not always accurate, friend Microsoft

Word knows that rule and will underscore an incorrect “there’s” with its helpful green squiggly. It’s hard to leave those in these columns, by the way, even for educational purposes. In colloquial speech, I see how the misuse of “there’s” could have arisen. While “there’re” is technically grammatically correct, it’s awkward to say. And it doesn’t even save you a syllable. Of course, the better option is still to say “there are,” but, hey, pick your battles, you know? In written communication, I would hope the misuse of “there’s” remains limited to texts, since most spell checks should catch that (and contractions are generally to be avoided in formal writing, anyway). In case you’re wondering why I use contractions in my column, it’s because I see it as a friendly, informal space where grammar enthusiasts can discuss the myriad peculiarities of language. And also I’m lazy.

Even our loyal, if not always accurate, friend Microsoft Word knows that rule and will underscore an incorrect “there’s” with its helpful green squiggly.

Spirituality Understanding Christians and Christ KING OF GLORY LIFESTYLE

Commentary by Bob Walters

May I recommend some holiday reading? Martin Luther King’s Birthday: If you’ve never read Martin Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” here it is the weekend of MLK’s birthday observance along with the upcoming 50th anniversary of this famous treatise (April 16, 1963). It’s a perfect time to read King’s sincere and instructive presentation of biblical principles to other Christian ministers. This is not merely a faith-based political polemic; it is a doctrinal letter Christians should read and believers will understand. King, we all know, was a flawed man. But too many flawed Christians write off flawed men. King’s theological argument for his civil disobedience is well stated in this biblically-based human rights manifesto for the ages. The letter also teaches salient historical nuggets, such as the reason 1963 was so active in civil rights: it had been 100 years since President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation freeing the slaves, and King perceived that very little real civil rights progress had been made. Google “MLK Birmingham.” Presidential Inauguration: I’ve also recently read Marcelo Pera’s “Why We Should Call Ourselves Christians: The Religious Roots of Free Societies.” As America inaugurates a president and tries to find its way as a nation through the


seemingly infinite polarization between liberals and conservatives, this Italian philosopher and statesman utterly nails both the philosophy and reality of freedom. Pera describes the absolute historical necessity of Christianity as a precondition for true political freedom to exist. Pope Benedict XVI wrote the book’s foreword. Pera’s highly readable and thoroughly footnoted 161-page work ably explains modern liberal thought, which is almost entirely secular, and how it bears almost no relation to classic liberal thought, which is almost entirely Christian. After Christmas: Have you ever wondered why Jesus was born in a barn? My elder son Eric gave me (by request) for Christmas Ken Bailey’s 2008 book “Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes.” The book clears up many cultural misunderstandings about Jesus. For example, our Western understanding of the Nativity (Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2) largely misses the reality of what happened in and around Bethlehem. Bailey taught New Testament studies for 40 years in the Middle East and provides a clear and faith-assuring overview of the biblical Jesus.

Costly travel mistakes to avoid Commentary by Tracy Line

So it’s January and you’re counting down the days until you leave for your winter escape. If you plan to leave the country for your grand getaway, you’d be wise to make a few phone calls before you go. Doing so can help you avoid many costly (and unnecessary) travel expenses. Call your cell phone service provider. International phone calls and texts can be outrageous. Worse yet, you’ll absorb the expenses even if someone calls or texts you. The good news is most phone providers can add an international plan to your account for the time you’re traveling. Arrange this in advance, and you’ll save money. Then you can call home to check on your dog Duke without hesitation. Call your insurance company. No one ever plans to get sick or hurt while on vacation, but it happens. Not all insurance providers include out of country coverage, so call yours to find out if you’re covered. If you’re not covered, purchase travel insurance that includes medical coverage. Metal match-up – Megadeth guitarist Dave Mustaine criticized Men’s Wearhouse for failing to deliver a gift card on time to his tour manager this past holiday season, citing a two-day delivery policy. The kerfuffle caused a social media storm, as he used his band’s Facebook page as a platform. –

Westfield Youth Soccer Association

Call your credit card company. Credit card companies are working hard to make sure the charges on your card are actually yours. If you don’t call in advance of your travels, your charges may very well be denied. This not only leaves you in a bad position, but you may end up paying debit machine fees to get cash. Even worse, you may have to forego buying your favorite souvenirs. Call the airlines. I can’t stress it enough. Airlines fees are rampant and each year they seem to increase. Call your airline to see what they charge for baggage, if it’s cheaper to precheck bags online (versus when you arrive at the airport) and what the weight limits are on bags. Paying an extra $100 for your overweight bag is not the way to start your vacation.

Little dogs can bring big problems

Commentary by John Mikesell

There are a number of advantages to sharing your life with a little dog: • They take up less room! • You can have several in the same amount of space as one Great Dane. • They share your bed without hogging it. • They don’t eat as much, so they are less expensive to feed. • You can get by with smaller backyards, and often (though not always) lower fences. • Little dogs’ poops are tiny and inoffensive, even in the house-you can pick up their mini feces with a tissue and flush them down the toilet. • And it’s easier to train a little dog than a Mastiff to use a litterbox, if that suits your life style. Just try to picture a Mastiff in a litter box. • Your little dog is less likely to knock over

your 93-year-old grandmother when she comes to visit, although a little dog can run under her feet and trip her. • The little dog is highly portable; you can fit him under an airline seat, in your shopping cart, or in a doggie backpack. And you can still drive a sports car. • Finally your little dog is less intimidating to people who are fearful of dogs, and more acceptable to landlords, hotels, motels, outdoor cafes, and other public places. There are however, some disadvantages: • Little dogs do break more easily, especially those with very fine bones, such as Chihuahuas and Italian Greyhounds. • Because of their small size, they can be mistakenly perceived as good pets for children. Some of them can be, but they’re not automatically the right choice for small humans – it depends on the individual dog, a good socialization program, and the child’s abil-

ity to be gentle with and careful around a tiny dog. • Their reputation as yappy ankle-biters is not entirely undeserved; they can become defensively aggressive if they feel threatened – and it’s easy to feel threatened when you are surrounded by humans and canine giants who are anywhere from 10 to 100 plus times your size. What you can do? • Commit to giving your little dog a bigger life by providing him with good-manners training that make him welcome anywhere dogs are allowed. • Respect your little dogs needs; don’t coerce him just because he’s little and easily overpowered. • Protect your little dog appropriately from unwanted attention and potential threats.

Zeus is housebroken, very intelligent and knows the commands speak, sit, lie down, stay, come, leave it and how to walk on a leash. He takes treats gently, plays and takes and releases toys. His personality traits include being happy, friendly and social, forgiving, tolerant, and attentive and calm when feeling comfortable in his environment. Zeus would make a great dog for an experienced dog owner with kids 10 and older.

Creating a beautiful bathroom in a small space Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BATHROOM: This home is located in the Irvington neighborhood on the east side of Indianapolis and was built in 1941. The current owners are the third owners. The property is the original farm in Warren Park, a four-block radius neighborhood near Irvington. According to the homeowner, “The bathroom is tiny and the prior owners had installed bypass sliding doors on a very high tub. I broke my foot over the summer and struggled to use the shower. We knew we needed a lower tub and more countertop space.” DESIGN PHASE: Maximizing storage in a relatively small footprint was the main design goal for this bathroom. By reworking an adjacent closet, space was able to be added to the bathroom. Tower cabinetry allowed the use of the vertical space. Material selection and overall style reflected the desires of the client. “When I was in Italy, I saw gorgeous marble bathrooms and I knew I wanted one for myself,” the homeowner said. “Our designer suggested the curved vanity. I like angles, and wanted an old-world feel to the bathroom - a vintage modernized look. That is where the idea for the curved van-

Before ity came from.” FAVORITE FEATURES: The owner commented, “The marble tile is the star of the show in this remodel.” Elegant 12-inch by 12-inch tiles in a staggered pattern cover the shower wall, finished with Hampton Carrera bullnose and crown molding. On the floor, 1-inch Hampton Carrera hexagon tiles were laid in a straight pattern. According to the homeowner, “I really like the flooring in the new bathroom. During design, large tiles on the floor just did not seem to fit. The small tiles are juxtaposition to the large

Inspired Design

After tiles on the shower wall.” FINAL RESULT: “When I walk in to the bathroom, I feel like I am in a spa, even though it is a small space. You do not have to have a large space to create a beautiful bathroom.”
