The Future of Pain Care is Here! 

WWW.INTER‐PAIN.COM 

“I am happy as can be! It is wonderful to have no back pain after the Laser Treatments from Dr. Srini”……… Robert Russell who is still back pain free at 8 months after treatment, is the world’s first patient to receive the minimally invasive Deep Tissue Low Intensity Laser Therapy (DT-LILT™) for failed back surgery syndrome. DT-LILT™ involves a new contact laser device for selectively destroying the C pain fibers while leaving the healthy tissues intact. DTLILT™ is invented by Dr. Srini and is first of its kind in the world. DT-LILT™ is NOT FDA approved and is available only at Advanced Interventional Pain Center.

“ I would say the future of pain care is here. With terrible leg pain I had hardly played any golf for the last 2 years. After getting just one treatment from Dr. Srini, I cannot believe that I completed the entire 18 holes with absolutely no pain ”….. Otis Oliver, after permanent pain relief from peripheral vascular pain. He does not require surgery.

“ I had severe tail bone pain and sciatica after falling on a hard object. For five years I had suffered in severe pain visited many treatment facilities and have spent over $ 60,000 in treatments without any pain relief. I am simply delighted that after just one treatment I am pain free”….. Barbara Wolfe, one year after treatment.

“My knees are 100% pain free without surgery after Dr. Srini’s treatment and I feel 10 years younger!”......... Mary Flora (Kokomo, IN)

(Medicare Accepted)

“ Over three years I have suffered from terrible headaches, I also had low back pain. I was told there was no hope for my pain condition and was put on addictive medications that affected my everyday functioning. I am simply delighted that I am pain free after 3 treatments by Dr. Srini who explained the science behind my pain condition. He has proven that my incurable pain condition was indeed curable! ”….. Edwina Foust after receiving permanent pain relief from headaches.

My name is Vicki Hinkle. I have struggled with foot pain for many, many years. I have had treatment and surgery from several very experienced, sympathetic doctors over the years with some results. As time went on the foot pain increased to the point to cause life style changes. I enjoyed outdoor hiking, long walks with loved ones and occasionally a day of shopping with friends. I had accepted with sadness; the reality those days were gone. A family member had gone to Dr. Srinivasan for back pain and had experienced wonderful results. I was encouraged to inquire about possible help with my foot pain. I had wonderful results in less than a week after my treatment by Dr. Srinivasan. It has now been several months; I am still pain free. I am able to exercise, accomplished weight loss and enjoy outdoor activities once again. I encourage anyone dealing with pain of any kind to schedule a consultation with Dr. Srinivasan and decide for yourself. The options available to you may give you some of your life back too!

OUR VIEWS

It is our position that it is time for a little Hoosier wisdom in Washington. While the Republican Party feverishly searches for a candidate capable of opposing a sitting president in 2012, political pundits increasingly mention Mitch Daniels’ name. A virtual unknown on the national stage, how could a short, balding, and, as some in the media have commented, “lacking in charisma and somewhat nerdy” Indiana governor be a contender? What does he have going for him? As George Will described at the recent CPAC convention, he has the “charisma of competence.” Whether in the White House as budget director, in the private sector in the Eli Lilly & Company Board Room, or as Indiana governor for six years, he is known as a cost-cutter and someone who can and will “right the ship.” As the U.S. diminishes in stature, economically and globally, we need a leader who can reduce the size of government, restore fiscal stability, and strengthen our image abroad. Daniels has a proven track record, as Indiana continues to thrive economically, amidst one of the worst recessions in recent history. Maybe it is time to share our short, balding, plain-talking, Harley-riding governor with the nation.

Right to work

It is our position that we must protect nonunionized Indiana families with the right to work. We support legislative bills SB333, HB1067 and parts of HB1216. These efforts would prevent union-only labor agreements like the one struck during the construction of taxpayer-supported Lucas Oil Stadium. Any worker not paying union dues was forced to either join a union or be denied the job. How can this be right and correct under the U.S. Constitution? Qualified and vetted workers should not be prohibited from opportunity because of power politics. With the elimination of nonunionized workers, a great deal of competition for work at the stadium was eradicated. Was this a factor in the price of the stadium being $75 million over budget? While we naturally believe in the importance of protecting our fellow workers’ rights, and ours, we do not rely on unions (as they have evolved) as the best way to accomplish this goal. After all, only 26 percent of construction workers and 33 percent of the commercial contractors in Indiana are union members. What good is protecting the elite minority only to the harm of the vast majority of Hoosier workers?

House, it shall be a law. (C) If the Governor returns the bill under clause (A), the General Assembly shall reconsider and vote upon the approval of the bill before the final adjournment of the next regular session of the General Assembly that follows the regular or special session in which the bill was originally passed. If the House in which the bill originated does not approve the bill under clause (B), the other House is not required to reconsider and vote upon the approval of the bill. If, after voting, either House fails to approve the bill within this time, the veto is sustained.

From the backshop Don’t pay ’em; recall ’em immediately From the sublime to the ridiculous. Seriously. First, Wisconsin Senate Democrats walked out on their Legislature more than a week ago and left the Badger State, and suit was followed by all but two of their Indiana House counterparts, who similarly have fled our borders. It’s all in disagreement over measures that would eliminate collective bargaining for teachers and for local public workers, as well as so-called “right to work” You have the background, so let us now get to the point. First, there is no way on God’s green Earth that these protests should warrant pay; we believe they have abdicated their responsibility to those who backed them in elections and thus should not be remunerated because of their actions. Second, each of the Democrats that fled his or her home state should be subject to an immediate recall election. Lest ye believe we’re simply going after Democrats here, we’d be writing the same things about Republicans had they been the ones taking a hike. It’s plainly irresponsible to figuratively paralyze a legislative session with such flight. What do you think would happen to you if you failed to show up for work for an extended period?

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg You know the answer. ••• There is a load of Carmel-oriented blog traffic out there, and most of it bashes Mayor Jim Brainard for his dogged pursuit of development, “the cost be damned.” Others take shots at still more bloggers that don’t identify themselves, and assertions are made that some of those folks actually are candidates for public office in the city. The right to free speech is a wonderful tenet of the First Amendment – and that applies to blogs. But the blogs are far more useful when the information is truthful. There’s so much hurtful mud being slung around out there. What, exactly, do the bloggers hope to accomplish?

Marriage is the ultimate commitment

Commentary By Terry Anker When anyone enters the civic space to speak about marriage, their standing to profess a point of view is questioned. Even as our elected officials have embarked into a discourse about this institution, we rightly wonder if they are able to throw stones. And as a long-wedded man myself, perhaps speaking more to their weaknesses than my strengths, I can assert that I love my wife and am steadfast in maintaining my private and public life in a way that honors the commitment that I made before God and the state of Illinois (where we were wed more than 20 years ago). This is not to say that marriage – mine or any other – is perfect. Like all efforts of humankind, it has its challenges. But its design is nearly ideal as a vessel to conserve and protect families. And marriage should be protected. It should be protected vociferously. But are we causing it greater harm in its defense than would befall it if allowed to mature naturally? Is restricting com-

mitted adult couples of any gender configuration the proper path to uphold the institution? Religion should be able to determine whether it sees fit to allow for these unions under canon. But shouldn’t government, if it has an interest at all, be aligned in a way that encourages stable, committed relationships? Wouldn’t it be better to make marriage harder to get out of than to get into? If marriage as recognized by the state is a contract between two adults, can’t it function more like other contracts? If someone steals business by breach of a fiduciary or other dishonest act, we can and do sue them. But if a spouse cheats us financially or emotionally, save divorce, we have almost no recourse. Shouldn’t a marriage agreement be at least as defensible as a cell phone contract? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmell.com.

Becoming Rambo for my son

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson A couple of years ago, my husband and I started taking our four children individually on little outings­so we could each spend quality one-on-one time with them. They get to choose the activity and lunch locale, and we must cheerfully play along. This past Saturday was my turn with our nineyear-old son Andrew. On previous “dates” we’d gone bowling and seen movies, and always eaten at his favorite restaurant in the whole wide world, Steak-n-Shake. In all honesty, I look forward to these days as much as he does . . . “Double steakburger with fries and a side-by-side chocolate-banana shake, please!” So I was surprised when Andrew announced we would be bypassing SS in favor of Cracker Barrel. And while I was contemplating whether I could order French toast for lunch and where one could even find a Cracker Barrel, he threw another curveball. “Mom, we’re going to Laser Flash!” Seriously? Are adults even allowed to play laser tag? Yes, he informed me, and I could even have some arcade tokens when I was done. How thoughtful, I smirked. “But wouldn’t you rather go see that new Gnome flick?” I asked. “Or we could go ice skating? What about Woodland Bowl? You love that place.” “No. It’s Laser Flash,” he replied. “Make peace with this, Mom. It’s happening.” Fine. We hit Cracker Barrel around 11. He enjoyed pancakes and I opted last minute for the biscuits and gravy. Feeling better about the day, I tried to persuade him to go to Build-A-Bear Workshop or even Color-Me-Mine – anything but laser tag – but he was set on embarrassing me. We arrived just eight minutes before a session was starting, so I barely had time to register that I was the only adult heading in to the holding bay along with 35 hyper-active third and fourth graders celebrating birthdays. Once inside, I tried to find a happy place and consequently heard none of the directions. The next thing I know, some teenager is outfitting me in a ridiculously small laser vest and Andrew is saying, “Just don’t get killed.” What? Wait! On a wave of Green Team enthusiasm, I was driven into the black-light-lit arena feeling much like Gulliver in Lillyput. I have to admit, I entertained briefly the idea of hiding in a corner until the three rounds were over. But then I saw the excitement on Andrew’s face and knew that I at least had to make an effort. So at the horn, I headed out into the fray with one mission: Survive. Shortly thereafter, I became wedged between a wall and a pillar, the space clearly designed for smaller bodies, and found myself a virtual sitting duck. “There’s the mom. Get her!” someone cried as multiple Red Team

carmel.stvincent.org

soldiers peppered me with laser virus bombs. Frustrated and “dead,” I stomped my way back to the recharge station (getting lost twice) and prepared for Round 2 with a new attitude. You wanna play? Alrighty then. Team Green is a go for Soccer Mom! I literally went crazy. With war cries and sneak attacks, I annihilated any Red Team brat that stumbled across my path. I used my superior height and intelligence to become a veritable RamboTerminator mutation. I even sacrificed myself in a hail of enemy fire so my team could take the Red Team base. The next comment I hear? “Whose mom is that?” “She’s awesome!” Yes, yes I am. But you know what was even more awesome? Walking out of Laser Flash with my son, with memories to last a lifetime. Peace out.

With war cries and sneak attacks, I annihilated any Red Team brat that stumbled across my path.

Sisters, A&D District support breast cancer awareness By Margaret Sutherlin Current in Carmel About 18 years ago, Kathy Farrow and Kelly Meyer joined together to support Race for the Cure, wanting to do something that supported women, and also their community. It was only a few years later when the event took on an entirely new meaning. “Fifteen years ago, our mom was diagnosed with breast cancer,” said Kathy Farrow. “She had a double mastectomy and made it through, and is a survivor. It’s really personal for us now. I really love the success stories we hear being a part of this. There is such a celebration of life.” The entire family was deeply touched by the cancer and since that time has shared their own encounters with breast cancer scares or concerns. Combined, the family’s focus and dedication has helped them raise thousands of dollars for their Race for the Cure team, Faithful Friends. This year, the sisters are taking on an even greater goal of raising $20,000. A private event Monday evening kicked off the annual Bras for a Cause event at Pillow Talk, where 10 percent of all profits are donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and events throughout the month will help support fundraising efforts. Rachel Davidson, owner of Pillow Talk, along with other Carmel Arts & Design District and area businesses, are supporting the Susan

Sisters Kelly, Molly and Kathy and their mom G. Komen through partnerships. Race for the ManiCURE, a manicure and pedicure certificate for La Dolce Salon, is available only at Pillow Talk, and automatically gives 30 percent of the proceeds to the foundation. The Simply Sweet Shoppe, Woody’s Library Restaurant and other area businesses have all joined in to support Bras for a Cause at Pillow Talk. “They are amazing women, and it was an immediate ‘yes’ for me to help them,” said Davidson. “It is also my goal this year is to double what Pillow Talk earned last year through Bras for a Cause.” To learn more about the Faithful Friends team join the group “Jon Team Faithful Friends for the Race for the Cure” on Facebook, or visit Pillow Talk, which is located at 23 E. Main St. in Carmel.

Carmel High School Girls Swim Team has won 25 state championships and set the bar high By Margaret Sutherlin Current in Carmel The atmosphere at the Carmel High School natatorium during the girls swimming practice is from the start, intense: the focus is on performance and endurance, and most of all excellence. The tradition of the Carmel High School Girls Swim Team is one that has spanned for 25 years of state championships and extensive cabinets of medals and trophies. The most recent state championship was the 25th for the team, and is the record for the longest streak in the state. “The state meet is an exciting experience. When our girls round the corner for the championship flight and see our fans, it gives you goose bumps. The coaching staff is excellent and I feel our dedication to young people is a daily occurrence which leads to success,” said Jim Inskeep, director of athletics at Carmel High School. Endurance of body and mind The Carmel High School Girls Swim Team, more often than not, are have been together since their earlier days with the Carmel Swim Club, creating a very unique bond between team members and coaches. The comfort and trust built over years of training together is extraordinarily apparent as swimmers respond decisively to critiques and praise while in the water, and form a dense group of conversation and gossip after the practice.

“We have very high expectations of our girls,” said head coach Chris Plumb. “I think that great things happen within the framework of having high expectations and people will want to be the best they can if that is what is expected of them.” Roughly 20 hours of practice a week are designed to push women to perform their best through exercise and technical practice in the pool and on land. Plumb says all his swimmers have extraordinary courage to take on the precedent for excellence in the team and out in the community. “I like swimming because I get to be in a team, but still I have to take ownership of my own performance,” said senior swimmer Rhiannon Sheets, 18. “When I was with Carmel Swim Club and 6 years old I knew I was a part of something bigger and wanted to be like the older kids I saw: it was a huge motivator.” One of the most unique things about the program is the consistency of equality and excellence demanded both in the women, and the men’s programs. “I think our team is grateful for the women who came before them,” said Plumb. “We for one day a year can make headlines and help put the focus on swimming and a women’s sport.” “There are two primary reasons our girls programs have thrived in the last three decades,” said Inskeep. “First, there are several outstanding feeder programs in our community which involve students and parents at an early age in a variety of sports. Second, the athletic department has strived to create equal opportunities in all areas for male and female student-athletes. Our ongoing commitment to this is evident in building projects, as well as financial and emotional support.” Creating leaders And while the swim program certainly develops athletes, it also helps create strong leaders and independent young women. The work ethic and dedication the women show stroke after stroke and dive after dive in the

pool underscore that the experiences also build their character. “For me, youth sports aren’t about the winning side of things. It’s about the relationships that develop over time and seeing young people do things they didn’t think was possible. It’s so exciting for me to see my swimmers grow and develop from unsure freshman to charismatic, confident leaders,” said Plumb. Alumni Colleen Drew, 19, won the 500 freestyle race at state last Coach Plumb oversees season and graduated in May of the team during 2010 from Carmel. After transferpractice ring to the program for one year only, she said the impact was something she would carry with her the rest of her personal life and also as a college athlete. “This is my family. The coaches and swimmers want you to be a better athlete, but also be a better individual and they support that with their leadership,” said Drew. “Our parents are our biggest supporters, but our coaches know how hard we’ve worked and seen us perform and want us to do well because of the effort we have put in. We are stronger individuals now because we have the fundamentals to learn how to handle our challenges.”

bigger and better meets One of the key things to the CHS swimming program is that swimmers go to a variety of meets across the area, and compete in nationals. The opportunity to enter more competitive races helps swimmers push themselves further as athletes, but also prepare to compete in the Olympics. Many members of the Carmel High School Team can consider the state competition a breeze as they prepare for Olympic trials. Next year 7 young athletes are headed to trials to compete for a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team.

The essence of essential GRAMMAR By Brandie Bohney There are scores of rules for using commas correctly. Some are really easy, such as using commas to separate three or more items in a list. Some are a little trickier and change depending on the type of writing you’re doing, such as whether or not you use a comma after the second-to-last word in the list. The point is, though, that if you are confused about when you should or should not use commas, you’re not alone. Here are a few tips: Use a comma to separate two independent clauses (complete sentences) combined with and, or, for, nor, but, yet or so: Betty needed shoes, so we went to the shoe store. Just make sure both sides are complete sentences, or you won’t need the comma: It was a perfect day for shoe shopping. Commas set off periphery information in a sentence: My dog, a black lab mix, loves to chase squirrels. You don’t need to know by dog is a black lab mix, so surround that unnecessary but interesting information with commas. If I reorganize the sentence, though, I might not need the commas: My black lab mix loves to chase squirrels. On the same token, commas let you know when information is essential. If I have two dogs, you may need more information to understand which dog I’m referring to: Walking my dog Roxie is like walking a Mack truck. If I only had one dog, Roxie’s name would need to be set

off by commas: Walking my dog, Roxie, is like walking a Mack truck. If you want a reader to pause for effect, commas are often the best way to ensure they do so: Dad is late, as usual. Follow introductory words with commas: Strangely, I felt nothing at all. As usual, Dad is late. Use commas when a subordinate clause precedes an independent clause: After he found his lunch, Toby sat down to eat. Similarly, if you start a sentence with a modifying phrase, follow it with a comma: After finding his lunch, Toby sat down to eat. Notice, though, that in both of these cases, if you reverse the order of the sentence, no commas are necessary: Toby sat down to eat after he found his lunch. Toby sat down to eat after finding his lunch. These are, of course, only a few of the ways you can and should use commas in your writing. Tune in next week when I explain how to use commas with adverbs such as however and though. Try not to fall off the edge of your seat as you wait. Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher. If you have a grammarrelated question, please email her at bbthegrammarguru@gmail.com.

Students win top score nationally for online safety course Current in Carmel Students at Woodbrook Elementary had a very exciting surprise waiting for them last week.  Members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Carmel Clay School Board and Senator Richard Lugar’s office visited to congratulate students for achieving the top score nationally on the FBI’s online safety program, FBI-Safe Online Surfing, or FBI-SOS.  Third, fourth, and fifth grade students in January took part in the national program that teaches students about being safe using technology and being online, and also helping them to become more conscious of their own activities on the Internet. Woodbrook mom and member of the FBI Citizen Academy, Susan Woodhouse, first introduced the idea for the program after friends heard about it at a conference. “This program is so imperative for our schools and kids because even the most involved parents can’t always be there and our kids really need to be educated about this,” said Woodhouse. “My fifth grader took the test after the program and came home and said she’d missed a few questions. I think this was enlightening for her, and forameriana.10.375x5.4.moneygrow:Layout me, because she thought she knew what she was doing online, and now she’s a bit more aware.”

Top scoring students at Woodbrook are presented awards by two area FBI agents The program was established in 2005 by the FBI in an effort to better reach children and teach them to be more aware online, while texting and using technology. While getting the program into an already packed school day is a challenge, members of the Carmel Clay Schools administration are already considering implementing the program in all schools. “Our hope is to reach as many kids as we can,” said Kathryn Sipes, the community outreach coordinator with the FBI. “Only three schools in the area have used the program, but with Woodbrook’s high score nationally, hopefully more local schools will want to get involved with the program.” learn more2:44 aboutPMthe Page program, 1 To 1/27/11 1 and take part in the online, non-competitive, free programs about being safe online, visit fbi-sos.org.

There are three variations of freezes, but this date refers to the last drop in temperature that could harm plants or other vegetation. There is a 50 percent chance a freeze could occur after this date. -www.almanac.com » New coffee trend - Get ahead of the coffee snob curve by checking out pour-over coffee, a Japanese method gaining ground among caffeine fiends. It requires a special kettle and patience, but the flavors can be distinctive and bright, even sweet. A "bean" is really the fermented seed of a cherrylike shrub, and if coffee is roasted carefully and brewed correctly, you can taste the flower and the fruit. -www.lifehacker.com

Carmel to host major national theater convention By Margaret Sutherlin Current in Carmel More than 1,000 community actors from across the country will converge in Carmel for a weeklong series of performances, workshops and outreach during the summer of 2013. The American Association of Community Theatre’s National Theatre Festival, or ACCTFest 2013, will bring plenty of business to the area, but also is the first major national convention the city has secured for the new arts complex at City Center. According to Carmel Repertory Theatre leaders and proposal presenters, Susan and Larry Creviston and Robert and Deb Rothchild, the event is a major one for the world of community theater, and an opportunity for actors, theater goers and Carmel as a whole to share their stories and talents with each other. “We are still, I think, a little overwhelmed that we got this,” said Susan Creviston. “We have skipped the regional and state programs for a national one, and I really think it will help further put Carmel and the Center on the map. We’re ecstatic.” The AACTFest happens every other year and is an opportunity for community theaters having won their regional competitions to compete

Brainard were key reasons, according to Larry, as to why Carmel made it to the final round. “The AACT team was blown away by the support from Mayor Brainard and the city council,” he said. “We didn’t really know what to expect during the process, but we were enthusiastic and we wanted it, and I think that’s why we got the event.” Throughout the application process, the Crevistons focused their proposal around the “stories” at the event. Each community theater will have its own unique stories, and Carmel Repertory Theatre will help host ACCTFest Creviston said it was Carmel’s story that was also going to be so imporfor the top prize as the best theater in the countant to the event. The underdog of presenters try. In addition to weeklong productions of the against Columbus, Ohio and other major cities, performances, the conference is also a resource such as Salt Lake City and Minneapolis, Carmel for theaters and actors with workshops for set is excited for the potential. design, production and management. “As the mayor says, we have no mountains or About a year ago, the Crevistons decided the oceans, and we have to manufacture what will time might be right to enter the competition to drive our economy and community, and that is host the event and approached city leaders about what the Center for the Performing Arts is for. it. The opportunity to host a national conference It will draw people to Carmel, where we have in the Center for the Performing Arts was somea wonderful art scene and great quality of life,” thing everyone seemed interested in, said Larry said Larry Creviston. “This complex will change Creviston, not just for the artistic reason but also Carmel forever and we want people to know our because the event will support local businesses. story.

Carmel students with Claude McKnight of Take 6

Music outreach touches Carmel classroom Current in Carmel Take 6 member Claude McKnight visited Carmel High School last week to work one-onone with music students. The “master class” was one aspect of the Larry Rosen Jazz Roots Series, which, as a part of the concert, allows musicians perform community outreach and interact with young people to help inspire and educate them.  Students in an applied music class performed for McKnight during their class period and received critiques and suggestions, and also candid advice from McKnight about the music industry. “People are there to see you when you’re on stage,” said McKnight. “We don’t care how confident you are: We care about who you are and how authentic you are in your performance.

Larissa White, a 17-year-old singer, said the opportunity to work with a professional was a real treat for her. “I think it was really fun,” White said. “He [McKnight] really showed us to reach for it while performing and showed us what we can do as a person and performer.” Take 6, an a cappella jazz and pop group, performed with Yolanda Adams during the Jazz Meets Gospel concert in late February.

Last-minute spring break travels TRAVEL By Tracy Line If you live in Hamilton County, Spring Break is looming. I know many of you weren’t planning to go away, but after the winter we’ve had, a warm, sunny location is calling your name. And now you’re wondering, “Can I go somewhere last minute?” The answer is yes, but with a few caveats. Expect to pay. Like everything else, travel industry pricing is based on supply and demand. Spring Break is prime and travel is up in 2011. Thus, prices are at a premium. Flights are often your biggest expense. Reduce your trip cost by selecting a destination within driving distance. Be open-minded. Face it: Thousands have booked before you, so be flexible. You may not be able to find a beachfront condo in Destin, Fla., a sought-after destination, but perhaps there’s one in a lesserknown area. While most beachfront condos are booked, you might find one near the beach. If a week’s stay is too costly, how about a five-day getaway? You need to work with what you’ve

got. Go against the grain. It’s a well-known fact most Hoosiers flock to Florida for Spring Break. Avoid the traffic and crowds and go where others aren’t. A few days in Nashville, Tenn., Branson, Mo., or Williamsburg, Va. can be as fun and refreshing as the beach. Vacations off the beaten path are often the most memorable. Deals require compromise. As previously noted, supply and demand rule the travel universe. If a destination isn’t selling, you might find a last-minute bargain. Just don’t expect it to be for a beachfront hotel in the Keys. But a long weekend in Las Vegas, a jaunt to Mexico, or even a condo in Orlando could hit the radar. Start with a blank slate, follow the deals, and you just might discover your best vacation yet.

You may not be able to find a beachfront condo in Destin, Fla., a sought-after destination, but perhaps there’s one in a lesser-known area.

Keep your priorities straight

COMMENTARY By Vicky Earley This is not going to be a column on “how to,” trends or anything else relating to decor. It is a column about priorities. Huh? How does that factor in to interior decorating? Stay with me and I will explain. Last week was a week of my backburner priorities raising their annoying little heads and petulantly demanding that I pay attention. I think it started when a friend came to the studio during a particularly bad-hair episode and insisted she return with her shears to fix the problem. She is a talented esthetician who has experience in hair. Unfortunately, my nails were a wreck, as well. I probably should have stayed home! Hair, skin and nails are my friend’s priority. That is her world, so it comes to the forefront of her day-to-day life. For others, it is clothing. We have a wonderful client, Betty, who never fails to walk through our doors in something less than jaw dropping. Although she is a teacher, clothing and accessories are her priority. I am lucky to get laundry through the wash-and-dry cycle much less have just the right jewelry with just the right outfit! Betty also prioritizes exercise, and that is worked into her day … everyday! My dentist came in the studio over the weekend and it reminded me of the need to make flossing twice a day a priority. My automotive repair place sent me a reminder that it is time for my oil change and my gazillion-mile checkup. My air conditioner guy sent me a card reminding me that I should make an AC checkup a priority. Oh, I forgot … I need to make changing my filters a priority. It goes on and on. I really think that if we all made everything that should be a priority an actual priority, we would never get around to living! Ahhh ... now that I have vented, I can bring good tidings about decorating. Here goes: If it is not a priority, you can do it once and it is done. Period. Do it once, do it right and it will last. Many of us do love the hunting and gathering that is the essence of our DNA. If so, it works easily into daily life. I fall into that category: I love houses, and I love creating beautiful spaces. I would rather do that than anything. It is my priority. For those who cannot even fathom how styles relate, which colors work best, and how furnishings will function, I have some advice: Call a decorator or designer, and get the job

done. This is not intended as an ad for designers, it is just solid advice that gets the job done so that it does not become an irritant, like flossing. After it is complete, take a nap, grab a good book, or go to the beach. It is done. You don’t have to put it on the daily, weekly, monthly or yearly list of “things I have to do.” Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel. If you have an interior design question, please contact artichokedesigns@aol.com.

If you haven’t noticed, hairstylists are creative. In their never-ending quest to be different, they tweak cutting and styling. Some of these become popular when they are worn by celebrities and therefore help mold fashion trends for the season. Some of the most popular styles for 2011 are seen worn by Rob Pattinson and Ashton Kutcher. Another go-to is George Clooney, who always has a classic style. For help determining which cut goes best with your style and face shape, ask our trained barber for his opinion.

Myth Busters We researched the following myths for you! Myth #1: A cold rinse adds shine and tames frizz. True. A blast of cold water at the end of your shower can make your hair appear shinier and smoother because it closes the cuticle. Myth#2: Hair can become immune to shampoo. False. Shampoo will always do its job. The trick is to get the right shampoo for your hair type and styling needs. Consult with a Salon 01 professional for a recommendation that is right for you. Myth #3: Brushing your hair often makes it healthier. False. Over-brushing your hair can actually dull it by destroying the cuticle as well as cause split ends and breakage.

Six were allowed to sleep eight and a half hours a night while the other four were allowed just five and a half hours. At the end of the study, all lost about seven pounds regardless of sleep, but those allowed a full night’s rest lost twice as much fat. -Harvard Health Letter

» Fight colds with soup – Research shows that chicken soup helps break up congestion during colds, but some experts believe it also inhibits the overactivity of white blood cells, triggering excessive phlegm and sore throats. To boost the soup’s cold-fighting benefits, add vitamin C-rich tomatoes, broccoli and peppers. Onion and garlic also help bolster the immune system. -Bottom Line Health » Mutant cells cause cancer at cuts – Researchers found that an oncogene – a gene that, when mutated, can cause cancer – called Smoothened stayed near the follicles of mice until the mice were wounded. Once the cells migrated to the upper layers of skin to fix the damage, they disrupted a biochemical. The cells seeded cancers for up to five weeks, even when the wounds were no more severe than a paper cut. -www.scientificamerican.com » Gastric bypass better than Lap-band – A study of the two most popular weightloss surgeries found obese diabetics who had gastric bypass surgery lost 64 percent of their excess weight after a year, compared with 36 percent in those treated with Allergan Inc's Lap-Band device, researchers said last week. Complication rates were about the same with both procedures. -Reuters

DIM and healthy estrogen balance in men and women FITNESS By Laura Marenco The balance of our hormones plays important roles in health and well-being. In particular, the balance of estrogens and progesterone can be significant in both men and women. Estrogen and progesterone need the presence of one another in order to perform their individual functions. But as we age, levels can become unbalanced and prevent us from feeling our best. Estrogen is produced in some degree to both men and women, playing a larger role in the female sex. It maintains the health and function of our sex organs and well as other needs such as skeletal growth, skin and protein deposition.  Progesterone is the building block for other major hormones. Sex hormones are formed from progesterone, including the corticosteroids, which are essential for stress response, electrolyte balance and blood pressure.  As we age, we can develop a condition in which our active estrogen dominates progesterone levels. This can be problematic in both men and women. In women, some of the issues go beyond menopause and can cause weight gain, moodiness and breast pain. Men tend to suffer from weight gain, loss of sex

drive, prostate enlargement and male pattern baldness as a result of the condition.  There are various factors that affect our hormones, from diet, environment, stress, and the natural aging process. The supplement DIM (Diindolylmethane) has been shown to naturally help the body balance or reduce our estrogen levels. DIM is a phytonutrient that is found in cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage and broccoli. A slow metabolism of estrogen prevents the body from managing the levels of active estrogen, and DIM specifically helps increase its metabolism into the beneficial estrogen metabolites the body needs. Many of the benefits attributed to estrogen, which includes its ability to protect the heart and brain with its antioxidant activity, are now known to come from these “good” metabolites. And in men, the promotion of healthy estrogen metabolism also supports the desirable actions of testosterone, including energy and libido.

DISPATCHES » Good stocks despite Obamacare – Health insurers’ stocks have been weighed down by fears that pending health care policy changes would threaten future profitability. YCharts Pro says two of the sector’s biggest players—WellPoint (WLP) and Aetna (AET)—are significantly underpriced, and a third, UnitedHealth Group, (UNH) is trading moderately below fair value.

The excuses you accept are the ones you’d use COMMENTARY By David Cain A friend of mine used to say, “The excuses you accept are the ones you’d use.” He was a pure salesperson. He lived to sell. And I’m reminded of his philosophy every time I’m making a purchase. Let’s say you are going to buy a television, one of those big guys that will allow you to spend your nights in the basement in its heavenly glow. How you shop and ultimately purchase is likely how forgiving and understanding you’ll be when you sell. If you require a lot of research and proof, showing up with spreadsheets for comparison, chances are you’ll think anyone that is going to buy something from you wants the same thing. If you don’t need any information and just show up ready to plop down your credit card, you’ll likely feel like anyone buying from you won’t require data either. The same goes for excuses. If I tell the TV salesperson that “I need to think about it,” then when I sell, I’ll more than likely accept the same excuse from my buyer. And we all sell. It doesn’t matter what your business card says or doesn’t say – we all sell. We sell our ideas, products and services to our

Current in Carmel

buyers. From stay-at-home mothers who sell meals, clean rooms, weekly tasks, and happiness to their family of buyers to business people that pitch ideas, products and services to their money-spending buyers, we all are in the business of selling our beliefs. The next time you hear an acceptable excuse for why you won’t “buy,” know that you’ll easily be willing to accept the same excuse from someone else. So when my kids tell me they are too tired to brush their teeth and I agree, that simply means I probably offer myself the same pass – and I do. Your buying habits reflect your selling habits. Often the best sellers are those who buy fast with little information. They don’t make any excuses, so in turn they often accept very few from their buyers. While it might not get you invited to too many parties, this can create faster decisions and more frequent success.

By Kevin Kane Current in Carmel Noblesville’s courthouse square will see a few new tenants in the coming weeks. Courtney’s Kitchen will move into the building formerly occupied by Dom DiCarlo’s at 654 Logan Street, which has been empty since Feb. 10. My Fair Flora will move into an open space next to the Noblesville Visitors Center on Conner Street. Courtney’s Kitchen is relocating just months after opening its doors for the first time. The restaurant, which serves food made with its owners’ family recipes, currently operates in the American Legion at 1094 Conner Street. “It’s just an exciting opportunity that we couldn’t pass by,” co-owner Carrie Courtney said. “When Dom DiCarlo’s opened up, we thought that would be our first choice - ever….It’s right on the square and has everything we’re looking for.” Courtney said the restaurant will open in its new location sometime in April, but the exact date is unknown. Until that time, she said the business will remain open at its current location. My Fair Flora provides fresh flowers for weddings and other events around the Indianapolis area. The move to Noblesville will give the online-operated business its first storefront. Courtney's Kitchen 773-2234

Facebook tips for business use TECHNOLOGY By Gary Hubbard If you’re new to using Facebook for your business and don’t really know what to post, here are some basic starter tips. The duality of the social and mobile revolutions has been both disruptive and empowering, especially for small businesses. This disruption of the traditional marketing model has convoluted the structure that used to exist as the “tried and true” way to grow a business. The “gatekeeper” model that has driven business from the beginning of time is being dismantled by these technologies that allow anyone to connect with anyone in real time without having to involve them (and usually at no cost other than time). Gatekeepers such as newspapers, phone books and television and radio stations used to be the primary way to get to a large audience in the past, but the costs to leverage those gatekeepers was usually (and still is) a barrier for small businesses. Social technology should be viewed first as a communications tool (just like your telephone), then as a way to “market” your business. Learning the proper protocols for using this new “telephone” is your first step. (The easiest way to learn is study what others, especially those in your industry, are already doing.) Facebook as a communication tool is awfully compelling with its 600 million (and growing)

user base, so here are five basic starter tips for and friends and family and not much more. Instead, focus on useful information such as anyone ready to dip their toe in the water. Tip No. 1: Separate your personal Facebook tips and tricks in your trade, business-related news from your industry and the mother of all page from your business page. Personal Facebook pages have a “friend” limit, topics, Facebook itself.

Tip No. 2: Don’t just use your logo as your openings, new products and services, etc. will be relevant, because your community will care about profile picture. It’s called “social” networking because it is sup- your business because of your contributions. Tip No. 5: Engage; ask questions and proposed to be social and it’s hard to be social with a mote your existing customers logo (unless you are a large brand with a passionate fan base).If possible, make sure you have huEngagement is the key to any social technolmans along with your logo as your profile picture ogy strategy, and the easiest way to get engageto increase your chances of making connections. ment started is by asking questions.

Help for the cheating epidemic part 6 RELATIONSHIPS By Rachael Noble Warning: These next few columns are a series on men cheating. I will be sharing openly and not holding back on opinions. So fasten your seatbelts. Now in this series, I’m only talking to the cheaters our there, so to you good guys – thank you for making this world a better place by being faithful – you are our superheroes. But for you players out there, I hope you will listen with an open mind. So guys…are you ready for some hardcore truth? I know some of you are seemingly enjoying romping around on the playground of love with women who help you stay in your unevolved behavior of keeping love at bay by not getting too close, cheating and skipping from gal to gal. From most women’s perspectives, once they realize your reputation, they see you as intentionally evil predators, only out to have a good time without caring about how many people you hurt and living it up without consequences. But as much as it may appear you are living the highlife, in the research I’ve done by interviewing male cheaters, many times these men are very insecure and unfulfilled. Once I’ve gotten to know their stories, these cheating Casanovas were textbook cases: hurt by things they have experienced in their past,

calloused by years of hurting others and always seeking to fill a void that they will never fill until they clean up their unhealthy inward battles and outward hurtful behaviors. Listen guys, I truly believe that your actions will catch up with you. You may even get away with it but you will bring negative karma to yourselves. I don’t want to be guilty of doing what many of us do - complaining about the cheating epidemic without seeking a solution. There has to be an answer to these actions that are destroying relationships and families across the nation. And frankly, I believe we women can be enablers in this epidemic (more about that later in the series) so we also need to learn how to not be contributors to the problem. So is there something we can all do about this problem? Can we all help to put a stop to infidelity and create a renewed sense of morality? I do believe there is hope! So in my next column, I’m going to talk about ways we can all contribute to the recovery of these cheaters, the restoration of the sanctity of commitment and help for this widespread cheating epidemic.

Remembering to forget about me FAITH By Bob Walters How often we sit in church during a worship service – I know I have – imploring God for a way out of, through or around life’s cataclysms. God’s glad we’re there talking to Him, and we’re glad He’s there to talk to. God’s available anywhere, yet sitting in church is where most of us feel closest to God’s ear. But worship isn’t supposed to be about us or our present situations, good or bad. Worship is about God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit, not about “me.” We lose the best part of worship if we focus on our problems and desires rather than immersing ourselves in the true, powerful heart of worship, the heart of Jesus Christ. The Christian life is about loving God and loving others. Jesus Christ is our example of what a Godly human life looks like. His love, peace, mercy, forgiveness, service, grace and more are outwardly directed manifestations of a life dedicated to God and humanity. For us, those virtues can become vices if they are instead directed inwardly, selfishly … truly impeding our ability to worship God. We don’t put a lamp “under a bowl,” says Matthew 5:15 (also Mark 4:21 and Luke 11:33). A “lamp on its stand” – Christ’s light in a Christian believer’s life – “gives light to everyone in the house.”

32 | March 1, 2011

Christ’s life, death and resurrection are His light shining on us and bringing mankind back into communion with the Creator God. Our worship should reflect that light, remembering Christ’s unparalleled Kingdom gifts of defeating death, erasing sin, and restoring us to heavenly relationship. That’s bigger than anything I’d be praying for. The bread and the cup of communion represent the closeness and reality of our covenant relationship with God through Christ, and with the community of believers with whom we share it. It’s a meal of love, a meal of remembrance, a meal in the here and now that attaches us to the eternity of God’s love, and to the eternal gift of Christ’s obedience, sacrifice and fellowship. The fastest way to richer worship is spending more time outside of church praying. St. Paul tells us to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Amen. We should praise, pray, ask, thank, confess and witness in all that we do, all the time. And when it’s time to worship, forget yourself and free yourself. It’s all about Thee, not me. Bob Walters (www.believerbob. blogspot.com, email rlwcom@aol. com) notes that if one’s approach to worship is “What’s in it for me?”, by all means, go and find out.

How to add new life to your landscape LANDSCAPING By Randy Sorrell A Rotary Club / Chamber / community buddy wondered recently how to energize her overgrown and tired landscape without completing starting over. Even when the right trees and right shrubs are planted in the right place, it can occasionally get too large for the intended purpose or just not feel right. FYI: We are discovering that many shrubs and ornamental trees are regularly exceeding their stated height and width specifications – global warming related I’m sure. Fortunately, there are jazzy solutions to taming the wild and rejuvenating the tired. For example, many deciduous (non-evergreen) shrubs respond well to a severe pruning, subsequently producing vibrant new growth. Red twig and yellow twig dogwood shrubs are fantastic examples. Spirea and potentilla get very woody after 3-4 years and shearing to 4” tall will prompt a complete regrowth. Rose of Sharon, wigelia, burning bush and viburnums are others that will benefit by selective, heavy pruning. E-mail me for details. Evergreens, conversely, do not respond well to

Soft-filtered water ... not a hard decision

heavy pruning and will often bite the dust when more than 25 percent of the shrub is hacked away. Combining strategies Typically, updating a tired landscape is accomplished through a series of tactics. Minor adjustments to bed lines can promote drama and guide sight lines. Try replacing naturalized clumps of perennials with thoughtful waves of just a few tame varieties. Those same few varieties repeated around the house provide rhythm, offer a splash of color and help create a sense of place. Transplanting shrubs may help, but don’t force the issue. If it doesn’t work, recycle it. Now is the time to think about your landscape’s renewal strategy, and nothing says fresh and new style like spectacular pots of color. I can’t wait to show you some incredible potting solutions next column. Randy Sorrell is president of SURROUNDINGS by NatureWorks+, a home improvement firm.

Flooring function is bottom line REMODELING By David Decker Let’s talk about flooring basics, the bottom line in many rooms. It’s what you walk on and often sets the tone for the overall room feel or design. We will be talking hard surface materials ranging from wood to porcelain tile, bamboo and cork, to exotic glass, terrazzo, rare woods, marble, stone and more. Today we’ll review the old standards, wood and tile, and a relative newcomer, cork. Wood flooring has been around for hundreds of years and still provides a completely modern and classic look. It’s made a little differently today – wider slats, different cuts, trendier designs, endless varieties – but it’s rugged, handsome and durable. Great for entryways, living rooms, kitchens and hallways, be careful using it in bedrooms, where quiet is as desirable as barefoot comfort, and bathrooms, where water, warmth and humidity can stain, warp, expand and otherwise ruin wood flooring. Porcelain tile is sturdier still, resistant to almost anything, and when accompanied by an epoxy grout is virtually maintenance free. The king in bathroom and kitchen flooring, some versions can be used almost anywhere, although living and dining rooms may require a bit more “cozy” than tile affords. The most modern styles include larger formats, with bigger individual

tiles and endless colors and textures. Cork, the new kid on the block, is naturally soft (easy on the cook’s feet!), resilient, plentiful and, surprisingly, water-resistant. It works great in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms, is easy to stand on for long periods, and lends itself to eye-popping mosaic designs. And keeping with basics, avoid these common cleaning mistakes on a new floor. Don’t use the vacuum’s spinning “beater bar” which will scratch and dull hard surfaces. Learn about and use only manufacturer-approved cleaners. Avoid ammonia (dulls the shine) and know that a “damp” mop is almost always better than a “wet” mop. Endless options mean that even down low, flooring should still be a highlight.

Has the computer takeover of humanity begun? HUMOR By Mike Redmond OK, so Watson the Computer wins on “Jeopardy,” and the next thing you know, the Weird Wide Web is full of doomsday predictions about the age of the machine being upon us and other such malarkey. Let us pause to reflect. For one thing, the age of the machine has been upon us for a good long time, beginning with the first time man decided to stop doing his calculations on fingers and toes – his own and, in cases involving sums greater than 20, other people’s – and invented the Sumerican abacus back around 2500 BC. “What do you have there?” “An abacus.” “What does it do?” “Well, using these columns in the right order you can figure out pretty much any sum you want without bringing in the neighbors’ extremities.” “Right. And I’m expected to believe that. I suppose you’re also going to enter it in ‘Jeopardy.’” Of course, it didn’t work out that way, because Alex Trebek had not yet been born. However, I do believe this was when man took his first tentative step toward a future in which a computer would win a game show. Which does not trouble me in the slightest. Let’s look at the nature of the game. All it asks

for (with the answer in the form of a question) is retrieval of information. The board says “Oct. 14, 1066” and you answer, “When was the Battle of Hastings?” Assuming you know. Well, that’s all a computer does. It answers long strings of yes-or-no questions in order to complete a task, such as hooking up Oct. 14, 1066 with the Battle of Hastings. The thing is, it does all that in a nanosecond, which unnerves some people. Game-show contestants, for example. Forget Watson. You want to worry about a machine in a game? Worry about Monopoly Live, a digitized version of the game in which a computer in the center of the board gives directions and keeps the digital bank. This means no more stashing money under the board for emergencies. No more kitty in the middle of the board for whomever lands on free parking. No more creatively miscounting your move to avoid paying rent on Boardwalk when your sister owns it. Well, I am having none of it. I want my Monopoly with dice and cards, paper money and cheating, the way it was intended. As far as I am concerned, any attempt to digitize it puts us – must I say it? – in Jeopardy.

This bud is for you HUMOR By Dick Wolfsie When I was about six years old, our family doctor chastised my mother when he discovered that Joan used Q-tips to clean her children’s ears. “Never,” I remember him saying in the sternest of tones, “put anything in a child’s ear smaller than an elbow.” Since then, I’ve always taken pretty good care of my ears, but lately they’ve let me down. Here’s the problem: I can’t get the earbuds that connect to my iPod to stay in place. I see people jogging, riding their bikes, walking their dogs, even playing Twister while the whole time those little suckers remain neatly wedged in position. Not for me, they don’t. First the right one falls out and dangles alongside my head, then the left one loosens and lands in the hood of my sweatshirt. Often the entire wire gets tangled on my dog’s leash or caught in my bicycle chain. Once I leaned over to get a pen out of my glove compartment, hooked the wires on my gear shift, and almost strangled myself. I thought I was alone in my plight, but apparently there are others suffering in silence. Literally. According to an article in the New York Times, two out of 10 people endure a disorder called earbud cartilage deficiency syndrome, sometimes known as ECDS, but if you’re looking for a good laugh at a cocktail party you re-

ally need to say all those words out loud. For To combat this abnormality, somebody needs to pay a lot more attention to product specifications. Here’s a description of a set of earbuds on eBay: “Full metal housing, cold forged from solid aluminum, anodized finish, with a tactile ID system, flexible joints and a full spectrum of hyper-balanced micro drivers.” Am I buying earbuds or a lunar module? It’s unfortunate that you can’t try on earbuds before you buy them, but that would be disgusting, if your selection had been in someone else’s canals first. I think about gross stuff like that, which is why I haven’t bought a new bathing suit in 20 years. On one Internet site you can get a fun pack of earbuds in three different sizes for only $69.95. OK, some people have two different-sized ears. I get that. But I think the market for three mismatched ears has limited sales potential. Maybe I should stop obsessing about this. In my senior years, I’m already dealing with failing vision, sinus problems and a receding hairline. I don’t need to be distracted by side issues.

Prevent your cat's hairballs

DISPATCHES

PETS By Dr. Gregory Magnusson Ooh, one of my favorite questions! “I have no cat experience but take care of two grandcats. What can I do about hairballs?” Well, I’m SO glad you asked. :) First, let me clarify something. There isn’t anything necessarily wrong with your cat if a hair buildup in the stomach is causing vomiting. So hairballs don’t need a cure, exactly, just management changes. Hairballs occur because cats ingest their own hair during grooming. You know how your cat’s tongue feels rough when she licks your hand? That’s because there’s all these little barbs on there, all pointing backwards, that help catch hair. The downside of this design, however, is that the cat can’t spit the hair back out once it’s removed from the coat, it needs to be swallowed. (This, by the way, is also why string is unusually dangerous in a cat – because once they start swallowing it, the barbs on their tongue prevent the string from coming back out and they have to keep swallowing it) Anyways, so the cat eats all this hair, some of it passes into the stool, but a lot of it collects into a big lump in the stomach.’ PREVENTION: The No. 1, gold standard, best “treatment” of hairballs is to prevent them in the first place. By brushing your cat. ALL. THE. TIME. And don’t just focus on the easy bits above the spine, you have to get in between and behind the back legs and under the belly.

» Don’t skimp on pet food – Spending more up front saves money in the longrun: Cheaper brands have possibly harmful preservatives, such as BHT, and fillers, like corn, that may cause allergies. These can cause skin reactions and may require a vet visit and a prescription diet. The first two ingredients on the label should be animal proteins, not by-products, grains, or vegetables. The cost can run to $1 a pound, versus 50 cents a pound for lesserquality food, but you'll save in the end.  -www.cbsnews.com

» Monarch count bounces back – Monarch butterfly colonies in Mexico more than doubled in size this winter after bad storms devastated their numbers a year ago, conservationists said last week although the migrating insect remains under threat. It is still the fourth-lowest year for the butterfly since researchers started census-taking in 1993. -www.scientificamerican.com

I prefer a fine-tooth flea-removal comb for this job, available either at Leo’s Pet Care or at your local pet store. Follow this with a “slicker brush” to remove loose hairs. TREATMENT: So, assuming there’s already a ball of hair in your cat’s tummy, what now? Well, in all likelihood, the cat plans to gack up the offending ball on your carpet tonight at 3 a.m. At least, that’s what happens in my house. If you hope to prevent that, you can do one of two things: A) Increase fiber in your cat’s diet, or B) lubricate the hairball so it passes out of the stomach. A) Increase fiber – that’s what “hairball diets” are for. They have added fiber that helps push the hair out of the stomach. The higher the fiber, therefore, one would expect the better the hairball food functions. Check the label. B) Lubrication – that’s what all these petroleum-based salves in the pet store are for. Honestly, rubbing a glop of regular ol’ petroleum jelly on your cat’s paw is just as effective. She’ll lick it off, eat it, lube up the hairball and hopefully poop it out. That’s the theory, anyways. I don’t think lubrication works very well. And you’ll want to invest in some kind of catvomit-removing carpet cleaner voodoo. If you find something that works, let me know.

Pets of the week Patch is a seven-year-old male black labshepherd mix. Patch is a very sweet boy who loves the companionship of adults and respectful children old enough to know his tail and ears are tug toys.  He is intelligent and knows the commands sit, down and shake and he his house trained. Patch is still very active and playful and he really enjoys going for walks.  He is very social and would make a great addition to a family with older children. Cooper is a six-year-old male tabby DSH.  Cooper is a very handsome boy with one blue eye and one gold eye. He is a bit of a big boy and he is friendly with a very pleasant disposition.  Cooper had lived his whole life as an outside cat and as a result he contracted Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).  However, this just means he now needs to live “inside” a home where he can be the only cat or he can live with other FIV-positive cats.  He is neutered, litter box trained and has been at the shelter for more than four months.  For more information on these and other animals at the Humane Society, call 317-773-4974
