CHS boys choir rallies to continue By Brandie Bohney editorial@youarecurrent.com

Greyhound Sound is the Carmel High School boys choir. Director Lamonte Kuskye has always made the extracurricular club available during first semester to any boys interested in singing. But with Kuskye’s busy second-semester schedule – including the spring musical and show choir competition season – Greyhound Sound has never been able to continue beyond January. That changed this year. Recently, a motivated group of more than 30 young men refused to let Greyhound Sound die before the second semester. Instead, they worked with Kuskye to develop the group as a student-led choir, rather than a faculty-led club. Kuskye said while there is always a staff member in the room with the boys, no one on staff selects music, accompanies or directs the students involved. The members of Greyhound Sound now accomplish all of those tasks themselves with a student director and several club officers. “There’s a really cool enthusiasm; the guys are really into it,” Kuskye said with a grin. “That’s why I hated to completely dissolve it.” The boys have their own goals for the club.

“We’re trying to get as many men into singing as possible,” junior Chris Jamerson said. “It’s really a great opportunity for them to be able to show up here … because this is really just like a glee club. We have a lot of fun here, and it’s a lot less pressure.” Several boys mentioned Greyhound Sound serves as a springboard into academic choirs, and it gives an opportunity for students who don’t have time in their schedule for a choir to participate in one. Junior Mark SanGiorgio said that not being in an academic choir has its perks, too.

Princess Walk taking place this weekend – Don't be surprised if you see tiaras and tutus on the Monon Greenway this weekend. The 2012 Princesses for Peace annual 4k run/walk will take place on Sunday at 1 p.m. Participants -- men, women, boys and girls -are encouraged to come in costume. The event costs $20 (age 12 and under free), with all funds going to the Butler University College of Education Minority Scholarship Fund. Each year, race organizers, including Martha Moseley and Holly Wheeler, choose a beneficiary. The scholarship fund was chosen to honor and remember Kay Harmless, one of the group's very own special princesses who passed away in 2011. The event starts and finishes at the Monon Community Center. Online registration is available at iwant2run.com/Princess_of_Peace.html. Race-day registration is available, too.

“It also gives us more freedom to choose what we want to do … instead of whatever (a director) would want us to do,” he said. “We can do more songs we can have fun with,” sophomore Nick Navarro added. The club has given the boys an opportunity to continue singing as a group and further strengthen their friendships, as senior John Evelo explained. “It’s not all about sequined vests and putting jazz hands out there on stage,” he said. “It’s a place where you can build a sort of brotherhood.”

CHS looking into possible locker room incident – Carmel High School recently notified the Carmel Police Dept. of a possible incident of student harassment that purportedly occurred in a school locker room. As of press time, no charges had been filed and the school was said to be looking into the alleged incident. “Based on the facts of the incident and a meeting with the parents, there was no police investigation,” said CPD Lt. Jeff Horner. Carmel Clay Schools issued a release detailing its procedures concerning student discipline and privacy. “We take our legal and professional responsibility of protecting the privacy of students very seriously,” the release said. “We recognize that juveniles make mistakes, and we will not contribute to exploiting mistakes of minors.

Commentary by Jeff Worrell

If these walls could talk, what stories they could tell. The walls erected at 321 N. Range Line Rd. are owned by Amy Forbush, who is in the process of restoring the stately home. But the rich history of the house, once occupied by Franklin and Hanson Booth, will not be forgotten if Doreen Squire Ficara, Stephanie Marshall and Ron Carter have anything to say about it. The threesome has done its homework, compiling the details about the story of the famous artists and accomplished illustrators who once lived there. Franklin, the eldest brother and member of the Carmel High School Hall of Fame, was a nationally-known artist contributing to top American magazines, such as Good Housekeeping, Harper’s, McClure’s and Cosmopolitan. He also illustrated recruiting posters for WWI and U.S. Savings Bonds, and created death certificates for U.S. soldiers who perished in France and Belgium. Frequent guests of Franklin at his house included Theodore Dreiser, his companion on a road trip from New York to Indiana, and throughout Indiana. Dreiser was author of the book, “A Hoosier Holiday.” Another visitor was James Whitcomb Riley. Franklin also did illustrations for the works of both distinguished authors. His younger brother, Hanson, was also a recognized illustrator, but well known as a cartoonist. He went to Indiana University and his work 4 | February 28, 2012

appeared in magazines, too. Doreen, Ron and Stephanie are working to find funding to place the Booth home on the list of Carmel locations with historical significance, and thus earning a plaque. There are seven such famous locations in Carmel now, and the Booth home, along with the Peele House, would raise it to the perfect number for a walking tour, a tour mapped out and planned as part of the 175th anniversary celebration of Carmel this summer. Funding, funding, funding – always a stumbling block which must be overcome. Before a beautiful bronze plaque (as yet unfunded) can be placed on the Booth home, a new coat of paint and the labor to apply needs to appear. Ficara said, “The home is such an important piece of Carmel’s history. I just can’t let it fade away due to lack of funding. I believe someone out there has the resources to help us out.” Perhaps you have a thought or an idea about how to get this project completed. If so, please send an e-mail to Doreen Squire Ficara at dsfcarmelarts@yahoo.com. Our 175th anniversary year seems like the perfect time to preserve a rich piece of Carmel history.

Coming soon Scavenger hunt to help veterans, LEG PAIN, FOOT PAIN, OR NUMBNESS? IF YOU SUFFER FROM: local businesses • Peripheral neuropathy • Burning pain • Leg cramping • Sharp electrical-like pain COMMUNITY

By Kevin Kane • kevin@youarecurrent.com

A series of Hamilton County scavenger hunts could provide a new home for disabled veterans and much needed exposure for locally-owned businesses. March is the first month of the firstever Hamilton County Scavenger Hunt, and Carmel small businesses will be the focus. Excluding April, each month through September will Wyant direct hunters to participating locally-owned businesses in a given Hamilton County community. The hunt will incentivize residents to get to know the area’s small businesses while also raising money for Save Our Veterans. “It came about for a passion for two things; the people participating have a passion for disabled veterans and a passion for local businesses,” said event committee member Lois Wyant, of Wyant Photography in Carmel. “These are local businesses with a heart for people and they’re hurting for exposure right now.” Wyant said 30 to 40 Carmel businesses will participate in March, ranging from restaurants to home décor retailers, and even a toy store. Participating businesses will display signs indicating their involvement. “They have to do a task at that location, something fun, like taking a picture of themselves doing something,” Wyant said. “They (the business owners) have come up with some really creative things.” Participants then would post their proof on the scavenger hunt’s Facebook page – facebook. com/HamiltonCountyIndiana. “After they’ve done that, they get a card to the next business and the card includes a special offer at that business,” Wyant said. With every 10th task they complete, Wyant said, their names are entered into a drawing for $200 worth of gift cards from the participating businesses. The completed tasks, however, do not carry over into later months. Each business involved in the event will be collecting donations for Save Our Veterans, a nonprofit organization that provides education and job opportunities, as well as housing for disabled and homeless veterans. Wyant said the hunt will be very helpful to both veterans and the small businesses struggling to make ends meet in a down economy.

St.Vincent completes renovation of its maternity unit St.Vincent Carmel hospital last week unveiled the completed second phase of a 28,000-square-foot renovation in the hospital’s maternity unit. Phase II of the three-phase project overhauled the original Neonatal Intensive Care Unit space, which Michelle Slayman, RN and director of perinatal services, said previously was an open area that held eight cribs. Now, the area includes nine private rooms that each can accommodate twins, more than doubling the unit’s patient capacity. “We really increased our size as well as created a better environment,” Slayman said. The first phase was completed in July and included work on the newborn nursery and post-delivery rooms (both shown on right). Above: Slayman inside one of the new NICU rooms. (Photos by Kevin Kane)

Divorce – What to Expect: The Benefit of Reaching an Agreement on Custody There are two aspects to child custody. The first is legal. Legal custody refers to the ability to have input on medical, educational, and religious issues pertaining to a child’s upbringing. Joint legal custody is appropriate in most cases unless there is a significant breakdown in communication between the parties. Generally, as long as the parents are able to communicate and cooperate with one another on decisions involving the child(ren) without a high level of conflict, joint legal custody will be ordered and the parents are required to consult one another before making any of these “major decisions.” The second aspect of custody is physical custody, which is much more often the subject of dispute. Simply stated, physical custody refers to where the children spend their time. As an initial matter, parents may create a unique schedule which satisfies the needs of their children and each other. Often, however, developing a parenting time schedule can be very challenging. When parties are unable to agree, the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines provide a parenting time schedule that gradually increases as the children age, provides for a division of holidays, and time with the children should one parent live a significant distance from the children’s primary residence. It should be noted, though, that the Guidelines represent a minimum amount of reasonable parenting time to be afforded to the non-custodial parent. Many Indiana Courts commonly award an involved, non-custodial parent parenting time in excess of the schedule provided in the Guidelines. People often feel the need to “have their day in court,” believing that if the judge hears “their side of the story” the custody order will be in their favor. However, in

evaluating whether to ask a judge to make a ruling on custody and parenting time, the parties would be well advised to keep in mind that time in court is limited, and it is difficult to present all of the information believed to be important. This is not to say that such conflicts which arise should not be litigated. However, once you proceed to court, the final decision is out of your hands. If parties are unable to reach an agreement, Indiana Courts will focus on the “best interest of the children” and in doing so will consider a number of factors in determining an appropriate custodial and parenting time arrangement. These factors include, but are not limited to, which parent has served as the primary caregiver; the child’s age and sex; the wishes of the child and the parties; the child’s relationship with each parent, siblings, and others; the child’s adjustment to their home, school, and community; and the mental and physical health of all involved. There are a number of benefits to reaching an out-of-court agreement, including but not limited to, allowance for non-traditional work schedules and flexibility for holidays. When parties are able to communicate and cooperate on these matters, it is a win-win for all involved.

Special Report

Council members unsure why county insists on spending $150,000 for 'private' drainage project By Kevin Kane • kevin@youarecurrent.com Carmel is trying to prevent Hamilton County from moving forward with a drainage project that city officials say should not be publicly funded and might not solve existing problems. Councilman Ron Carter said the county’s drainage board plans to spend thousands to redirect storm water flow in Crooked Stick Estates north from the Thomas Hussey Drain pond to the Clay Creek Drain. Carter said the proposed project could potentially fix the drainage issues faced by one or two Crooked Stick residents while presenting new drainage problems for others. “We’re not into fixing private drainage issues,” Carter Carter said. “(The county]) is going to spend $150,000 to fix a drainage problem for two people. It might just be one person.” A few houses in the neighborhood sit on the north side of the pond, and at least some of their owners are said to experience issues with flooding following heavy rains. County ComSharp missioner Christine Altman, a member of the county drainage board, said this flooding creates “a waterfall effect” in the basement of one of the homes, owned by Tom McCullough, who owns waste management solutions company Terra Limited. The county’s solution, for which it already has awarded a contract, is to redirect water north and Altman down the street through roughly 1,000 feet of pipe, where it will discharge into a small creek running between other homes. Not only do City Council members and owners of the homes near the creek say the flooding is a private drainage problem that shouldn’t be fixed with public funds, but they also claim the county’s proposal might not solve the existing issues. These parties all have said they have “no idea” why the county is so determined to proceed with the project.

How we got here

A letter written in October by the council to Altman briefly explains the backstory. “We understand the County Surveyor’s office was presented with a petition from certain property owners in Crooked Stick Estates asking the County resolve a drainage problem in this neighborhood,” the letter said. “We further are given to understand the Commissioners may have been led to believe this project was one of several identified in Carmel’s Master Drainage Plan for Southwest Carmel; the implementation, to include funding, of which is a requirement of our annexation settlement agreement with NOAX (the organization which negotaited the settlement agreement with the city)." www.currentincarmel.com

The county’s drainage board plans to spend nearly $150,000 to redirect storm water flow in Crooked Stick Estates north from the Thomas Hussey Drain pond to the Clay Creek Drain. Some question if the project will solve the current problems.

But when the board first asked Carmel to complete and fund the project, the city’s engineer originally agreed to this request. But only the council can approve the funding. Council President Rick Sharp said the city engineer’s office has since determined the drainage problem is a private issue and not of public concern. City Engineer Mike McBride could not be reached for comment. In December, the council approved a resolution “affirming the city’s exclusive jurisdiction with respect to drainage matters in Crooked Stick Estates.” Altman, however, said the fact that the area has been designated a regulated drain puts it under county control, citing drainage laws that date to the 1800s. Soon after, the drainage board passed its own resolution Carter said “directly flies in the face” of Carmel’s December resolution. “They’ve indicated in that resolution they have so much money that, if we won’t pay for that drainage they have proposed, then they will pay for it out of their excess funds,” he said. “The county has taken that action, and it may fall to us to look to legal actions ourselves to protect the city of Carmel.”

Why this project?

Asked to speculate on the county’s motive for being so persistent in pursuing the project, Carter and Sharp each said, “I have no idea.” Altman contends the county is obligated to correct drainage problems if they are feasible and money is available, and since the city is refusing to pay the bill, she said it’s the county’s responsibility to correct the issue. But the councilors said the occasional flooding at the two residences – the second owned by Jamie Browning of real estate and development company Browning Investments –is not something Current in Carmel

that should be fixed with public funds. Likewise, Crooked Stick resident Rick Hall said he doesn’t understand why his property, and those of his neighbors, must be altered because the basement of a home down the street from his “was built lower than the pond.” “My yard floods all the time, but I’m not asking the county to spend $150,000 to fix it,” Hall said. Hard rains already overflow the creek that runs behind Hall’s property, he said, and that’s without the county’s proposed work, which he said would remove a number of his trees and “dump millions of gallons of water” into the small creek. He’s suing the county in attempt to stop the project, or at least allow for dialogue. But he said his main issue with the county is the tactics used, which he likened to bullying. He said the county views the easement on his property as a “blank check” with which it can do whatever it pleases. Altman said she isn’t aware of any other complaints regarding the proposed project outside of those from Hall and his nextdoor neighbor. She also said the rest of the subdivision greatly preferred this project to the one originally proposed, which would have lowered the level of the pond by 4 feet and increased its capacity. “It would have been devastating to the property values and to the golf course,” she said. “That really wasn’t a good plan.”

‘It won’t solve the problems’

Hall commissioned an engineer to review the project, and the engineer’s report indicated flooding issues at the homes near the pond might not be resolved by the proposed project, while Hall and his neighbors could potentially see additional flooding. In an e-mail provided by Hall dated June 21, 2010, Christine Kallio, a project engineer with the county surveyor’s office, tells Gary Duncan of the city’s engineering department about McCullough’s petition and the proposed fix. “His basement floods and he wants us to reconstruct the drain,” the e-mail continues. “I do not think this will help much because the home was built too low … Lowering the outlet of the pond below the submerged outlet is the best solution but that would lower the pond 4 feet below the existing level. We would have a major objection from landowners on the pond.” Lowering the pond would cost approximately $100,000 less than the proposed project, according to a report Kallio presented in April. “Why didn’t they pick the best engineering option?” Sharp asked. “Why did they pick the best political option?”

The other side

“The engineers picked the solution that they think is best. I didn’t,” McCullough said. McCullough said he is OK with losing trees or having his landscaping disrupted if would solve the problem, but he said it would not. He said a poorly engineered pipe system is the cause of the flooding – not the construction of his basement. McCullough said an old corrugated metal pipe, intended to take water from a drain at the street to the pond, is not sloped and outlets into the pond, to boot. “It was never engineered to hold water, yet it’s holding water Continued on Page 10 February 28, 2012 | 9

Continued from Page 9 consistently every day, full,” McCullough said. “No one will approve today how the system is engineered.

Jerry Throgmartin It is our position our community lost a great leader recently with the passing of Mr. Jerry Throgmartin. The longtime hhgregg executive and Hamilton County resident was involved in a great number of boards and charities outside his own professional responsibilities. The time and resources Throgmartin provided to various causes has positively influenced many in our community. Aside from his successful time running hhgregg, Throgmartin was known for his work as chairman of the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center Development Board, a regular donator to the Shepherd Community Center and a board member of his alma mater, the University of Indianapolis. An avid horse enthusiast, Throgmartin and his wife purchased the Vista Verde Ranch in Steamboat Springs, Colo. Also a devoted family man, Throgmartin is survived by his wife, Peggy, a son and twin daughters, as well as two granddaughters. There is little doubt Throgmartin’s influence in our community stretched far, and he positively influenced a great number of individuals. His legacy will be felt for generations to come.

Commentary by Terry Anker

The never-ending “update” meeting has become the scourge of the modern reality. In a time where we are constantly notified, informed, educated and advised about the minutia of the daily routine of our family, coworkers and distant acquaintances, the once all-important get-together to put all of the players on the same page is becoming less enlightenment and more exasperation. So how do we keep our weekly routines from being administered by the Redundancy Dept. of Redundancy? Isn’t the key with keeping our routine meetings dynamic, as with many things, driven by preparation? Show up ready to do business. Work to bring greater depth to reports already shared and avoid simply restating what we’ve already expressed. Don’t we owe it to our fellow meeting-mates to keep the sessions lively? After a big pasta lunch and in a warm room

darkened by a planned lengthy overhead presentation, even the most attentive listener can drift into naptime. We bob our heads. The almost uncontrollable need to doze reminds me of long family car trips as a kid. I’d get in the backseat – blanket in hand – ready to spend the time reading a good book or listening to Mom and Dad up front. But in moments, my eyes would lose focus and my mind would wonder. It was auto-induced narcolepsy, carpolepsy, I suppose. Perhaps waning attentions are a natural part of the modern meeting regimen. But, don’t we have an obligation to try to keep things moving? Please make it worthwhile, or let us get some shut-eye. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

Shop Talk Stopping traffic: School buses Commentary Jason Peek The talk in the shop this week was about some traffic ideas in Carmel. I notice when I drive west on Main Street during the morning school rush, the traffic backs up through the roundabout at Keystone Parkway, stopping traffic just to let a couple of kids cross the road, when usually, there are several groups coming from the neighborhood that could catch up and make it more efficient. Or, to let maybe seven to 10 cars go through from the west or south. Maybe a tunnel or a skywalk would help kids cross safer and keep traffic flowing for everyone. Hey, if we can build expensive gateways for the Arts & Design District for vanity, then maybe safety crossings for our children … just a thought – I’m not a city planner. The other thing I found out was it is not safe, nor so much legal, for a bus to make a stop and hit its lights shutting down traffic in all directions just to let one of the fellow, or several fellow bus drivers out, as a courtesy without having a pickup or drop-off for the students. It’s the same as if I

decided to control traffic and let my brother out of his neighborhood; I would probably get a ticket. Another example is if a bus headed west on Main Street by the bus depot and fire station stops, and the bus driver put the stop sign arm out, and someone drives through the turn lane and has an accident. It is the bus driver’s fault, not the citizen who wrecked. Stop arms are only for designated stops for students, not to dictate traffic to one’s liking. We all have an equal right to get to our destinations in a lawful manner and to be safe while we do it … let’s be careful out there, Carmel. Jason Peek is the owner of the Main Street Barber Shop.

Mr. Mom saves the day Commentary by Danielle Wilson

If you have the means to hire a manservant, I highly recommend it. In the words of Ferris Bueller, “It is so choice.” See, my husband recently switched jobs and now works from home, enabling him to take on many of my former stay-at-home mom responsibilities. For all intents and purposes, Doo is now Mr. Mom. At first, I thought his enthusiasm for laundry and dishes and other tedious chores would diminish after a few weeks. Sure he was happily sorting the whites and the darks initially, but I figured he’d have had his fill by the seventh or eighth load and I’d soon be finding mismatched pink athletic socks scattered like bomb debris on the living room floor. But to my surprise, almost two months later, he’s not only hanging in there, he’s actually doing a really good job. He’s had to call kids in sick, take them to orthodontist appointments, even nurse a child through an oral surgery which claimed seven teeth (and coordinate runs to CVS for the pain meds and Wendy’s for the prescribed post-op Frosty). He’s taken over the after-school carpool for our twins’ music practice, the tedium of bill paying and the mundane decision-making of helping four children get ready for school. As a working mom, I can’t tell you how much stress and guilt having my husband at home has

removed from my daily routine. I can leave in the morning knowing he will be there to handle the preschool chaos, and I can return knowing anything of major importance will have been dealt with. He does disappear into his office for a few hours each night, and I’m still the goto parent for lunches, scheduling and parties, but the bulk of the homework and dinnertime crapola is now in the surprisingly capable hands of Doo. And so no one starts feeling sorry for the put-upon man slave, let it be known Doo is enjoying the new setup immensely. He’s using the time previously wasted in frustrating traffic and inane meetings to work out, tackle homeimprovement projects and improve his cooking skills. The whole arrangement truly has been a win-win situation for everyone. Which brings me back to my initial point, which is a manservant can solve all your problems. And if said manservant happens to be free and legally bound to you and your heirs, all the better. Peace out! Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist.

We need both sides of the story Editor, I read your one-sided editorial on the Keystone pipeline. Just like Dick Lugar, you are not really being truthful. First of all, the land the pipeline will be built on will be owned by a foreign company, TransCanada. This calculates to almost 19,000 square miles. Now, what if TransCanada decides to sell the pipeline and land to another foreign nation with which we are not on good terms? Why would we sell so much of our nation in the first place to a foreign nation? Why isn’t this land being leased or rented? If we can’t protect our southern border, how are we going to protect a 1,700-mile pipeline that will run in some wide, open areas? What are these 20,000 jobs? TransCanada said the most they know of would be about 6,000 jobs that

may last no more than two years. Canada didn’t want the pipeline going across its country to the East coast; why should we want it?  Lugar says all the oil will be ours. That is not true. Ninety-seven percent of this oil will go overseas. And, the last point is environmental. Why would we want to risk the water supply for the Great Plains? That is our breadbasket. I hope you print these points in your paper. Don’t lie and sugarcoat like Lugar does. I have voted Republican since I could vote, but this issue really has me upset because no one is telling the truth. Lugar and Dan Burton are not telling the whole story on this pipeline.

A visitor’s perspective Editor, As I have an economic development and marketing career, I was, as a first-time reader, interested in Current in Carmel, impressed initially with your level of support (through paid advertising) of local businesses and the “hometown” flavor you give to Carmel. When I first read the letter to the editor from Bob and Stacy Brake, I was shocked. Surely, they could not have been objecting to an article of such blatant partisanism in a publication that, at that point, I had considered informative and politically uninvolved. Then continued reading and, to my dismay, Current in Carmel printed a “column” by Bob Walters (“The goal that never changes”) about his faith, in which he counsels us all that “faith in Christ is the goal, the prize, the joy, the first cause and this never changes.” As Bob and Stacy Brake note, the residents of Carmel deserve a more professional effort. Mr. Walters’ faith is of no interest to me, and should not be of interest to any reader. Your content of advertising, reviews and news is sufficient, but it is offensive to readers, like me, that you have added this dimension. You may say you offer this spirituality column to all, but you won’t

Making sense of George Kaiser Editor, If readers Bob and Stacy Brake are correct, and George Kaiser is a Solyndra investor and is worth $10 billion (I believe that is a 10 with nine zeros), and the loan to Solyndra from the federal government was for $535 million, why didn’t he make the loan to Solyndra and not have the taxpayers be “on the hook” for the failed venture? After all, as a Solyndra investor, he must have been confident the company was going to be successful! The amount of the loan would have been (in the language of the Brakes, mere pocket change) to Mr. Kaiser – actually, about half of 1 percent his apparent worth. But who cares? Our government spends money like it’s water and, after all, has the ability to print as

Fishing for memory Humor by Dick Wolfsie

Mary Ellen is quite happy. Instead of getting takeout from Olive Garden near our house, I drove 30 minutes to downtown Indianapolis for an authentic Italian dinner. That was way, way out of my way. I also threw in a couple of roses, a funny Hallmark card and a box of chocolates, thus making this year’s Valentine’s Day a truly unique and memorable experience. But Mary Ellen was perplexed. “You never forget Valentine’s Day,” she beamed, “but you’ve forgotten our anniversary twice. I wonder why?” The answer is simple. There is always a lot of TV advertising as we approach Valentine’s Day, with hundreds of suggestions for what to buy. While the media sources do not let you forget the arrival of this heralded day of romance, not once has CNN ever mentioned one of the Wolfsies’ upcoming wedding anniversaries. There were no references to one in Newsweek and no text message from 1-800-Flowers. There’s just no excuse for Diane Sawyer blowing off our 30th. No wonder it slipped my mind. Mary Ellen mentioned the nightly news had run a story about memory issues I might be suffering from. For example, scientists have found a link between the food you eat and your mental acuity. Chocolate must be good for memory, because after Mary Ellen took a few bites of her

candy, she remembered I still hadn’t taken out the garbage. Fish is supposed to be a brain food. Back when I was a kid, my mother could make an incredible tuna sandwich. Bumble Bee all-white with just enough mayonnaise, a touch of lemon juice and a little chopped celery, pickle and onion. All on fresh Wonder white bread, soft as a marshmallow. It’s been 60 years, and I still remember those lunches. And now I know why. Leftover meat loaf? Totally forgettable. Also, a diet of cruciferous veggies rich in a certain vitamin is also linked to enhanced recollection. The article I read about this proclaimed the key to having a good memory is B6. Yes, if I could be 6 again, I bet I could remember all the way back to when I was 5. By the way, even nutritionists can’t remember what cruciferous means. The night after Valentine’s Day, Mary Ellen served a high-memory soup made from kale, okra and collard greens. It must have done its job because it made me remember how much I hate vegetables.

Hall pass for high school reunion Laughs by Mike Redmond That anguished cry you heard last week was me, realizing my high school class will have its 40-year reunion this summer. I find this disturbing on several levels. To begin with, there’s the number – 40. It is a big number. And part of me thinks it simply cannot be true. It’s been 40 years since I graduated from high school? Impossible. Try 25. OK, so there’s the age issue, which I am going to have to come to terms with. This leaves the issue of appearance, as in I don’t want to go see my old classmates looking as I do now. I’m going to need to lose some weight before July. About 100 pounds ought to do it. I’m also told invitations have been sent, and accepted, to several of my old high school nemeses, or as they are more popularly known, teachers, including one who inculcated in me a hatred of English literature so profound I won’t even use Shakespeare fishing tackle. And then there’s the one who proved to me, via my report card, my future did not lie in the world of chemistry, resulting in a disciplinary action at home that has me still, technically, grounded. This is shaping up to be a brutal reunion. Then again, they all are, in their way. My class started reunionizing five years after www.currentincarmel.com

graduation. I skipped that one because at five years, nobody has really been gone all that long or done all that much. That changed at 10 years. By then, people were making their way in the world. I know I was. Which is why I was too busy to attend. It was at the 25-year reunion Debbie Banasiak told me I had turned out exactly like she thought I would. I didn’t quite know what to make of that. I remember at the time hoping she meant suave, debonair, worldly, interesting and incredibly handsome, but I don’t think that was the case. I can’t remember if I went to the 30-year reunion. Or if we even had one. I think we had one for 35 and I think I attended. My memory is getting kind of weird on things like that. I remember high school like it was yesterday, but yesterday seems like it was 40 years ago. Life, it has been said, is just like high school, only with longer hallways. OK, then. Here I go, off to homeroom again, unless I can get Mom to write a note excusing me. I doubt it. She’s still steamed over that chemistry grade.

‘To sleep, perchance to dream’ Commentary Dr. Roger Spahr This phrase, buried in the middle of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” finds its speaker in the middle of moral and mental anguish. Perhaps that, too, is you as you sprawl across your bed. Arms and legs akimbo with some parts buried in blankets, while other body parts peak out to prevent the “too hot” feelings that may engulf you at night. Researchers have learned poor sleep increases inflammation and can increase risks for depression, heart disease and cancer. Inflammation can cause fluid retention, weight gain, excessive cortisol and reduced immunity. So why do many people struggle with their sleep? These factors may be the answer. Don’t drink alcohol before bedtime. Although you may drift off, the processing in your liver of the alcohol occurs overnight. It interferes with the stages of sleep that help your body repair. Hence, you do not awaken refreshed. If you are a woman, it can compete with estrogen breakdown, and hot flashes may be what awaken you. Low blood sugars can result from alcohol and will surge your cortisols and adrenaline as you sleep. Stress before retiring. Newscasts might be informing, but they have been proven to start you thinking and you just can’t turn off. You stare worriedly at the ceiling. Bad news just got worse. Eating sugars and snacks that turn into sugar in the evening have a similar impact as alcohol, but without the other negative aspects of the alcohol. Chips and a soft drink, or pretzels and beer, are not the food of champions when it comes to sleep. A light protein snack works better. Community releases new assessment – Community Health Network recently unveiled a new community health needs assessment tool that includes more than 100 nationally recognized measurements rating the overall health status of Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Marion, Morgan and Shelby county residents. The health needs assessment, available to the public on ecommunity. com, uses data compiled from governmental and nongovernmental agencies, and is automatically updated as the most recent data becomes available. The assessment is divided into categories derived from the social determinants of health, including economy, education, environment, government and politics, public safety, social environment and transportation. It also rates each county’s progress toward the national standards of health and wellness established by the Centers for Disease Control’s Healthy People 2020 initiative.

Room temperature between 65-72 degrees. Your body temperature drops at night. Taking a warm bath before retiring helps you drop you temperature naturally at night. If the room is too warm, you will awaken prematurely. Forced late nights. Whether you work swing shift or just have too many things to do, late nights disturb your rhythm. Your brain chemicals are confused with light from computer screens, big screen TVs and not to mention that last load of laundry that just HAS to be done. The problem is with multiples of these and other things, such as caffeine, we run our bodies and minds down, and then lose the ability to correct it ourselves. Don’t put up with sleep problems. Medication will only go so far. You have to identify the source, then the action plan to dream on.

Carmel doctor has new procedure for dealing with varicose veins By Darla Kinney Scoles • editorial@youarecurrent.com Varicose veins. No one wants them, but the millions who suffer with them endure pain, swelling, leg heaviness and even skin changes, including ulcers. When Linda Garrett of Kokomo had her varicose veins “stripped” 10 years ago, the process was extremely painful. The post-procedure swelling and restrictions made her hesitant to get help when she developed a blood clot due to vein failure in her other leg last year. Luckily for Garrett, medical advancements have brought a new – and better – way to deal with the problem. Referred to Dr. William Finkelmeier at VeinSolutions in Carmel, Garrett said she was hesitant to undergo the new VNUS Closure procedure offered there, but knew she had to better her situation. “Going in, I was scared to death,” she said. “When I got done, however, I walked right out of the hospital the same day. It was incredible.” Finkelmeier, who participated in the research that led to the procedure, said most patients have been in so much pain prior to the radiofrequency-powered catheter operation, they feel only minor discomfort in comparison post-surgery. “Most patients require no pain medication,” Finkelmeier said. “And they say the difference is like night and day. They have few complaints, and many return to work the next day, walking, biking and taking the stairs.” An avid walker, Katie Bolinger traveled from the Richmond area to undergo VNUS Closure in an effort to relieve her constant leg pain. Repairing both legs, one week apart, Bolinger resumed normal walking quickly. “Really, it was not like I thought it would be. I would never have guessed it was going to be so painless,” Bolinger said. “I would never hesitate to do it again.”

Dr. William Finkelmeier of VeinSolutions in Carmel.

How it works – The VNUS Closure procedure is an outpatient treatment performed in the outpatient department of the hospital. Local, regional or general anesthesia may be used during the procedure. A thin catheter is inserted into the vein through a small opening, using only a single needle stick. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut. Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over and empty blood from the legs. As normal return flow is reestablished, your symptoms should improve noticeably. Following the procedure, the catheter is removed.

Starting to think about retirement? Investment by Adam Cmejla

Although most of us recognize the importance of sound retirement planning, few of us embrace the nitty-gritty work involved. With thousands of investment possibilities, complex rules governing retirement plans and so on, most people don’t even know where to begin. Here are some suggestions to help you get started. First, set lifestyle goals for your retirement. At what age do you see yourself retiring, and what would you like to do during retirement? If you hope to retire at age 50 and travel extensively, you’ll require more planning than other people. You’ll also need to account for basic living expenses, from food to utilities to transportation. Most of these expenses don’t disappear when you retire. And don’t forget you may still be paying off your mortgage or funding a child’s education well into retirement. Finally, be realistic about how many years of retirement you’ll have to fund. With people living longer, your retirement could span 30 years or more. The longer your retirement, the more money you’ll need. Don’t forget about two of the biggest (but most silent) obstacles of retirement planning: taxes and inflation. Both are present in any retirement plan, no matter the income, and both will have an adverse effect on a retirement plan if not taken into consideration Next, project your annual retirement income and see if that income will be enough to meet

your expenses. Identify the sources of income you’ll have during retirement, and the yearly amount you can expect to receive from each source. Common sources of retirement income include Social Security benefits, pension payments, distributions from retirement plans (e.g., IRAs and 401(k)) and dividends and interest from investments. An important question to ask is how will you take income from your investments and how much is a safe amount to withdraw to avoid running out of money? If you find your retirement income will probably meet or exceed your retirement expenses, you’re in good shape. If not, you need to take steps to bridge the gap. Consider delaying retirement, saving more money, spending less in retirement or taking more investment risk. This is just a starting point. The further you are from retirement, the harder it is to project your future income and expenses. However, if you’re getting to the point of retirement and you’re ready for more detailed planning, consult a financial professional. Everybody will retire at some point in the future. Make sure it’s the retirement you want to live, not the retirement you’re forced to live. Adam Cmejla is the president of Integrated Planning & Wealth Management, LLC, in Carmel.

Studies: Everyday chores can extend your life editorial@youarecurrent.com If the treadmill’s not your thing, no problem. Two studies indicate even mundane activities, such as doing chores, can tack on years to your life. The first study, from the National Institute on Aging, followed 302 healthy seniors for six years. The most active burned 2,611 calories daily, compared with just 1,766 for the least active group--and the constant movers were 70 percent more likely to be alive at the study’s end. The researchers found that for every 287 ad-

ditional calories the seniors expended each day, their mortality risk decreased 30 percent. The energy difference came from everyday busywork like cleaning, gardening and climbing stairs. In the second study, scientists from the University of Heidelberg in Germany tracked 791 people from their 20s into their senior years and discovered those who became more active in their 40s cut their risk of heart disease by nearly the same amount as those who had maintained a lifetime of activity. -www.prevention.com

Need a job? Online company could help editorial@youarecurrent.com Jobs may be hard to find for some working people in the U.S., but there is a brand new opportunity for senior women. A new online company, rentagrandma.com, is selling listings in its directory where other people may hire you. Rentagrandma.com claims this is a “revolutionary concept for quality domestic staffing needs.” “Every grandma is a mature woman who is only the most professional, experienced staff and meets the standards customers will demand for their own grandmas,” the company says in a news release. The company said its goal is to sign up 5,000 grandma workers in the first two months of 2012. Women using the site can advertise their services as nannies, chefs, pet sitters, tutors, personal assistants and more. They can also sell

items such as baked goods. There is a listing fee of $25, which the company says does not guarantee employment. However, it claims the amount of publicity it has received is helping many senior women find work. For more information, visit www.rentagrandma.com. And if purchasing a listing, try entering the promo code “Grandma.”

Investing in fixed income – Wells Fargo advises those investing in fixed income to diversify income streams. Look for opportunities in emerging-market debt as well as corporate and high-yield bonds that may offer yield cushion and capitalize on growth. Yield premiums in the emerging markets may offer opportunities for U.S. investors seeking diversification and enhanced income. In the U.S., Wells Fargo expects both investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds to perform well in the current environment of slowly improving economic growth and improving credit fundamentals. - MoneyWatch No screening needed? - In October, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force concluded that routine PSA screening does not save lives. This conclusion was based on five major clinical studies. The two largest, conducted in the U.S. and Europe, found the death rates of men who got the test were virtually the same as those who didn’t. The panel also concluded the PSA test leads to more tests and treatments that needlessly cause pain, impotence and incontinence in many men because most of the cancers detected are very slow-growing and unlikely to ever pose a threat. What many patients and even doctors don’t understand is that the PSA test is not a specific test for cancer. It’s a very sensitive test that can detect abnormalities, but it’s not designed to identify a particular problem.

Tale of an outdated document – Forbes contributor and financial planner Michael Chamberlain recently wrote about a widow who came into his office with a story from which everyone can learn. “Her husband ‘John’ went to school, got married, built a successful company, had three kids, got divorced, remarried and later died. The problem is that his Transamerica life insurance policy and his 401(k) retirement plan at Merrill Lynch listed his first wife as the primary beneficiary, not his kids or current wife. Guess who got these assets upon his passing?” -www. forbes.com

Aging eyes cause problems - The gradual yellowing of the eye’s lens and the narrowing of the pupil that occur with age disturb the body’s circadian rhythm, contributing to a range of health problems, recent studies suggest. As the eyes age, less and less sunlight gets through the lens to reach key cells in the retina that regulate the body’s circadian rhythm, its internal clock. Circadian rhythms are the cyclical hormonal and physiological processes that rally the body in the morning to tackle the day’s demands and slow it down at night, allowing the body to rest and repair. This internal clock relies on light to function properly, and studies have found that people whose circadian rhythms are out of sync, like shift workers, are at greater risk for a number of ailments, including insomnia, heart disease and cancer. -www.nyt.com www.youarecurrent.com

About twothirds of men with an elevated PSA don’t have cancer. They could have an inflamed or infected prostate (prostatitis). They could have a prostate gland that’s larger than normal (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH). Also, PSA levels normally increase with age. -www.bottomlinepublications. com

Chest pain due to CAD Health by Dr. Blair MacPhail

Chest pain due to coronary artery disease is a very individualized symptom. Some people experience the typical pressure in the midsubsternal area of the chest radiating to the jaw, arms, throat or back, and may be associated with shortness of breath, nausea and vomiting or sweating. Others may have less typical symptoms or nonspecific subtle symptoms, such as extreme fatigue. This is referred to as “silent” CAD and is less common. Women tend to have less typical types of chest pain that involve the back. Risk factors for CAD include diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, family history and tobacco abuse. Modify these risk factors by quitting smoking. Help prevent the development of CAD by aggressively reducing low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (through medicine such as statins), exercise and controlling hypertension and diabetes. CAD can present suddenly such as a heart attack, or more slowly, sometimes starting as a symptom with exercise or activity relieved by rest. If someone develops a sudden persistent

chest pain, or associated symptoms, we recommend going to the emergency room of a nearby hospital to obtain a history/physical, electrocardiogram and blood work to rule out a heart attack. Intermittent forms of chest pain or other symptoms can be evaluated with a history/physical and a variety of screening tests. These may include a treadmill testing, or a form of cardiac exercise with intravenous medicine. We often use echocardiogram or nuclear scan to image the heart before and after exercise (or IV infusion of medicine) to make the stress test more accurate. Coronary artery disease is a common problem and can be prevented in many people. If you are having chest pain symptoms, go for an evaluation. To help prevent CAD, get your cholesterol checked, don’t smoke, maintain a healthy weight and blood pressure and perform some form of aerobic exercise four times a week.

Weight gain caused by fries – According to a recent report by the New England Journal of Medicine, just one extra serving of french fries results in an average of 3.35 extra pounds gained every four years, accompanied by the findings that even just an extra handful of potato chips each day could potentially add 1.69 pounds in the same time period. The study also found participants who slept between six and eight hours per night gained less weight over time than people who slept fewer than six hours or more than eight. -www.healthwatchjournal.net

Burn more fat in less time What if you could work out just 20 minutes per day and burn more fat than one hour on a stair stepper or treadmill? Sounds too good to be true, but new research is suggesting otherwise. According to CNN, new research has revealed working out for 20 minutes a day using interval exercise may provide many of the same benefits of much longer workouts done in a conventional “longduration” style. Many experts recommend children and teenagers exercise one hour a day, and adults get a weekly minimum of two hours and 30 minutes of moderately-intense physical activity. Most people I know simply do not have the time to be working out for one or two hours per day. A new and exciting study in the Journal of Physiology found about 20 minutes of highinterval training provided the same benefits of longer exercise sessions that focused on endurance training. According to mercola.com, women who worked out for eight seconds at high intensity following by 12 seconds of moderate to low intensity burned up to three times more fat during a 15-week period. Experts believe the reason for the increased fat burn is a result of a unique metabolic process. Intermittent sprinting produces a high level of catecholamines, www.currentincarmel.com

chemicals responsible for allowing more fat to be burned from underneath the skin. One must be careful and seek the advice of a qualified health care provider, and the assistance of a personal trainer, before getting started in this type of exercise. Heart issues and muscle imbalances can make this type of training dangerous for those who are not properly prepared. I suggest using a bike or elliptical to start. Begin by doing 30 seconds of 80 to 90 percent intensity cardio, followed by 60 to 90 seconds of 60 to 70 percent intensity. Repeat 12 to 15 times. If you have healthy knees and a strong core, feel free to venture out into running sprints. Always remember to have a well-balanced training program. High-interval training should be done no more than twice a week. Make sure to leave room for a more brisk cardio session, some weight training and even yoga or Pilates. A well-rounded fitness program that changes every four to eight weeks is a sure way to stay lean and healthy for life.

Do you need a flood policy? Insurance Q&A by Dena Shepherd Page Question from Nick T. of Carmel: Spring is right around the corner and it’s got me thinking about rising water. I’ve only lived here for a couple of years, but I live about half a mile from the river. Do I need a flood policy? Response from Dena Shepherd Page: Most of Hamilton County sits in a moderate-to-low risk area when it comes to flood risk (you can check your risk at www.floodsmart.gov). Preferred rate policies are the lowest premiums available through the National Flood Insurance Program. This policy will protect your house and its contents starting as low as $129 per year. It takes 30 days after purchase for a flood policy to take effect, so don’t wait until the water starts rising. The first thing you need to know about flood insurance is what the policy covers. A flood insurance policy will protect your property from flooding accompanying hurricanes, heavy rains and melting snows. A standard homeowners policy specifically excludes coverage for all these things. Some insurance carriers will add flood coverage with an endorsement to your homeowners policy, but usually you will have to purchase a separate policy. The other thing you need to know about flood insurance is what it doesn’t cover. Flood insurance doesn’t cover water that rises up through your plumbing. This type of loss is pro-

tected by using an endorsement to your homeowners policy called sewer and drain backup. A loss from sewer and drain backup can be just as damaging as a flood loss. Sewer and drain backup coverage is a simple endorsement you may already have included on your homeowners policy right now. Standard coverage usually starts with limits of $5,000. If you have a finished basement, $5,000 is definitely not going to get you back to where you would like to be. We usually recommend upgrading coverage to $10,000 - $25,000 to make sure you are adequately covered. Higher limits are definitely available. The cost of this endorsement varies by carrier, but is usually a very low percentage of the total cost of your policy.  The steps you can take to prevent flood claims are pretty easy and you’re probably already doing them. First, make sure your sump pump is working and has an adequate battery-powered backup, in case it loses power. Next, make sure your gutters and downspouts are free and clear of debris and obstructions. Lastly, make sure your downspouts are getting water far enough away from the house that the water is not returning.

Tungsten prices soaring – As China's role in the tungsten market dims, tungsten mining companies will be basking in the warm glow of profits. Tungsten gained fame as the filament in incandescent light bulbs. But because it's the second-hardest substance after diamonds, more than half of it now goes to make cutting, drilling and wear-resistant parts. China, which accounted for around 86 percent of tungsten production last year, has slashed both output and exports, sending prices on a tear. They climbed about 35 percent during the course of 2011 and remain 27 percent above last year's lows. Because there are no futures contracts on tungsten, investors should look to the stock of mining companies like Malaga (MLG) and North American Tungsten (NTC) to take advantage of the shrinking supplies and growing demand for the specialty metal. -www.barrons.com

These stocks could collapse

Dendreon (DNDN) – Of course, you probably could put any biotech on this list, as any disappointment will always sink the stock. But Dendreon is not just any biotech. It has been one of the most watched, traded and scrutinized biotech in recent years. So why is the company on my list? It is heavily reliant on Provenge. Dendreon reports earnings this week, and has three more reports coming during 2012. The company has widely missed earnings expectations in past quarters, and it’s unlikely to meet expectations four times out of four. Sales, earnings or Provenge will disappoint at some point. Dendreon will fall as a result. Dendreon has produced some lottery-ticket-like rewards in the past when things are good. Netflix (NFLX) – Not long after Netflix brought back its DVD-only plan, Comcast (CMCSA) announced a streaming plan to take on Netflix. It didn’t take long for Netflix to lose more than $15 off the recent high. You could make the case the collapse has started already. We all know the issues with Netflix. Lack of profitability in 2012, billions in content obligations nobody is sure they can pay and an apparent lack of strategy from upper management. Netflix soared in early 2012, but with so many competitors expanding their reach or announcing new plans recently, it seems Netflix is doomed in the long run. We should know Netflix's fate in the next few quarters. - seekingalpha.com

Will you lose Internet on March 8? Personal computing by Ken Colburn

What can you tell me about the FBI shutting off the Internet for thousands of users on March 8? - Alan Last year, a group that infected more than 4 million computers worldwide (with an estimated half a million in the U.S.), with what is called the DNSChanger Trojan, was brought to justice. The Domain Name System is the backbone of the Internet’s address scheme and DNS servers are special computers around the world that act as Internet traffic cops, providing directions to Web sites you wish to visit. If your computer was infected with the DNSChanger Trojan, you are being sent to a “rogue traffic cop” that would send you into a virtual dark alley to be mugged. It also made sure you couldn’t get to security sites that had tools to help you clean up your computer. The FBI decided to get a court order allowing them to replace the rogue DNS servers with legitimate standins so all the infected computers wouldn’t get cut off without warning, giving them time to get the word out. The court order runs out on March 8, so anyone still infected with the DNSChanger Trojan will no longer be able to access the Internet because the temporary DNS servers won’t be online anymore. So you can see the characterization of the FBI using a kill switch to cut our citizens off from the Internet is pretty inaccurate.

24 | February 28, 2012

If everyone infected by this Trojan cleans it up before March 8, no one will have a problem, but the infection is so widespread, it isn’t likely to happen. If you are somewhat technical, you can do a selfcheck of your computer to make sure you’re not infected by comparing your computer’s DNS setting to the list of rogue DNS servers: 85.255.112.0 through 85.255.127.255 67.210.0.0 through 67.210.15.255 93.188.160.0 through 93.188.167.255 77.67.83.0 through 77.67.83.255 213.109.64.0 through 213.109.79.255 64.28.176.0 through 64.28.191.25 The FBI has published a pretty decent guide to performing the self-check at www.goo.gl/raqfL, but if you aren’t comfortable doing the check yourself, make sure you consult a tech savvy friend or professional to avoid getting cut off on March 8. If you are infected by the DNSChanger Trojan, the FBI reminds us this malware also disables security updates, which could have further exposed you to other malware. Be sure you have a thorough cleanup performed, and you get caught up on all the missing updates if you find your computer has been compromised.

Ready to run: Christi Thompson I’m a Carmel runner: Christi Thompson, vice president of operations at Salon 01 I’m running: The Carmel Half Marathon presented by Runners Forum Number of years as a Carmel resident: Seven Goal for the 2012 Carmel Marathon Championship Weekend: I am using this as a training run for the Illinois Marathon the following week, though I am also going to for a personal record, which would be anything under 1:47:00. Why I started running: I started running about seven years ago because several of my friends were running the 500 Festival Mini Marathon. I wanted to see if I could do it, too… And I haven’t stopped running since. Why I decided to run a race: I decided to run the Carmel Half Marathon because I did it in 2011, Salon 01 is a sponsor and it is helping me prepare for the other races on my calendar this spring, which includes one marathon, two half marathons and a 50k ultra marathon. Favorite place to run in Carmel: The Monon Greenway I run with: My friends, a group of

ladies called the Perfect Strangers. You can find us every Saturday morning, rain or shine, cruising the whole length of the Monon together. One word to describe what running means to me: Therapeutic. Advice for new runners: Start slow and do not get discouraged. You are not going to be able to run 10 miles the first time you hit the pavement, but part of the reward running gives is a sense of accomplishment, and that sense will come with each new mile or time threshold you surpass. So stick with it, and soon you will wonder why you hadn’t been doing this for years.

Shedding some light size Decorating by Vicky Earley Ahhh … if only we could tap into a nice, neat formula to ensure our decorating endeavors would be a smashing hit. The size of the dining room chandelier begs on its hands and knees for such a formula. After all, it is simple geometry, right? Well, sort of. When a client asks for such a formula, we supply them with the basics: In general, the dining room fixture should have a diameter half the diameter of the tabletop. For instance, if the table were a rectangle of 48 inches wide by 72 inches long, a 24-inch diameter would be perfect. If the table were a 60-inch round diameter, a 30-inch diameter chandelier would work. In most cases, I advise clients to err on the larger size since a “too small” fixture can ruin the look of the room. The height of the actual chandelier is usually determined by the ceiling height of the room. We follow the rule of allowing 2 1/2 inches to 3 inches for each foot of height. Using this formula, a room with an 8-foot ceiling can use a chandelier approximately 20 inches to 24 inches

in height. If the ceiling is 10 feet high, then a light fixture 25 inches to 30 inches would look more appropriate. Just when you thought your decorating life would be easier, keep in mind these are just guidelines … not hard rules! Consider the style and density of the fixture in question, and you can push those guidelines aside. There is still the subjective element that insists on having a say! For instance, if a fixture is heavy visually with an abundance of crystal or metal, it might work better if the fixture is on the smaller side. A visually light chandelier can be a little wider in diameter. Don’t forget to be present when the perfect fixture is installed. Although the rule of thumb for distance from table to fixture is approximately 30 inches, there is nothing like a human eye to make the final decision. A few chain links can make a huge difference.

Scientists discover unusual planet – Scientists have discovered a new type of alien planet – a steamy water world larger than earth but smaller than Uranus. The standard-bearer for this new class of exoplanet is called GJ 1214b, which astronomers first discovered in December 2009. New observations suggest GJ 1214b is a watery world enshrouded by a thick, steamy atmosphere. Researchers said "GJ 1214b is like no planet we know of" because “a huge fraction of its mass is made up of water." This so-called "super-earth”  is about 2.7 times earth’s diameter and weighs nearly seven times as much as our home planet. It orbits a red-dwarf star at a distance of 1.2 million miles, giving it an estimated surface temperature of 446 F – too hot to host life as we know it. - www.space.com A surprising luggage trend – Hard-sided luggage cases have suddenly become popular again; now they're as light as soft-sided bags. A 22-inch carryon made of polycarbonate weighs a mere 4.5 pounds, the same as a traditional softsided piece made of nylon, and much lighter than traditional acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene hard-sided material. How light is 4.5 pounds? That’s light enough to hold a bag with your forefinger, when the bag is empty. Yet the plastic is still tough enough to avoid dents. Sales of polycarbonate luggage recently began to take off in a big way, according to the Travel Goods Association. These suitcases are replacing old-fashioned cases at higher prices. Even Zero Halliburton, a luggage maker famous for selling aluminum cases, says it is experiencing its strongest sales for its line of polycarbonate suitcases, such as the 19-inch Z-TEX (about $325). - www.travelkit.msnbc.com 26 | February 28, 2012

Carpet may be the biggest overall seller in home flooring options, but hard surface floors are the favorite in trendy home improvements. Long-term wear, a fashionable look and dependable function lure homeowners to hard surface flooring. It is easier to clean, healthier in the house and easier to maintain than carpet or many of the popular, pliable and much more inexpensive linoleums. And while hard surface floors typically require a bit more cash up front, surfaces like wood, tile, stone, glass and laminates can be an ultimately economical “forever floor.” This flooring often pays for itself many times again. I’d be the first one to tell a customer trends should not govern a flooring decision. Utility, comfort, style preference and budget are the proper parameters. For example: Utility – Is the flooring for a high-traffic walkway area? Are there special needs in the home (wheel chairs, walkers, scooters, etc. … or asthma, allergies)? How much moisture (or spillage) will the floor need to endure? Comfort – Walking barefoot on soft bedroom carpeting is wonderful; walking barefoot on soggy bathroom carpeting is not. Are there noise or acoustic concerns from annoying

echoes? Style preference – Midwestern styles tend to lag a little bit behind big city trends, but I say, “So what?” The most important ingredient in making sure a customer is satisfied with a flooring decision is to provide professional flooring and design advice. Budget – Quite often, customers know they want new flooring before they know what it will cost, and that’s OK. Needs, wants, and affordability form a triangle that develop best when customers know their finances, and the home improvement professional knows flooring. It’s not hard to remember styles and trends come and go, but a good flooring decision can last (almost) forever. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring.

Decks and grills transform space Outdoor Living by Randy Sorrell

Remember a few short years ago, when luxury outdoor living implied a simple deck with last year’s fashionable patio furniture? Dressed up with an outdoor rug and a few colorful pots, and you were the envy of the neighborhood! America’s recent romance with “Outdoor Rooms,” the art of cocooning and stainless steel grills, has promptly served a fresh definition of everything fashionable outdoors. The sheer volume of well-designed products, services and amenities for outdoor living brilliant minds all across the globe have created – just for you – is stunning. And fun. Perhaps that makes the process of creating your incredible outdoor living space seem daunting. So, how do you define luxury outdoor living? Is a simple patio or deck with updated furniture sufficient, or do you want more? Most seem to want more because they have experienced it and recognize its value. Interestingly, some of the most compelling spaces we’ve built in our 19 years have also been some of the most simple. So, when does a pergola, outdoor grill station or fire feature make sense? Where does the vision for the space come from and how are materials selected? How does a budget-

*Excl Parts & Specials New Customers Only

conscience family justify implementing another phase of a project? What price can anyone place on incredible memories that will inevitably occur on updated spaces? All great curiosities, as our community and world process the new realities, dreams and hopes we have. But, this I know … amazing things happen when couples, families and neighbors come together outside. And when that outside space happens to include updated definitions of fantastic outdoor living, they occur often and with remarkable clarity.

Consider these factors - Choosing the right grass for your lawn can make the difference between having a low-maintenance, environmentally-friendly lawn versus one susceptible to diseases, pests, and weeds. The type of seed you choose depends on several factors: 1. What do you want your lawn to look like? Grasses vary in color, leaf width, habit (characteristic appearance) and density. Grass color and texture vary by species and by exposure to the sun, degree of fertilization and impact of summer drought. Density also affects appearance. Dense turf crowds out weeds and supports traffic better than sparse turf. 2. Your growing conditions: the amount of sun your site gets, soil type, its level of fertility, expected rainfall and your climate. 3. How will you use your lawn? Are you planting for landscaping, erosion control or as a play area? - www.yardcare.com

February gardening tips – 1. Want colorful salads this summer? Order seeds now for red iceberg lettuce, ruby Swiss chard and purple pod beans. 2. Plan some window boxes. Good choices for plants: zinnias, nasturtiums petunias, geraniums and begonia. Edible choices: cherry tomatoes, lettuce, kale and herbs. 3. Test the germination of last year's surplus seeds before ordering new ones. Place 10 seeds between damp paper towels. Keep them consistently damp and in a dark place. Check germination rates to determine how many seeds to use for your real planting. - www.almanac.com
