5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN FILING FOR DIVORCE IN INDIANA • Never allow your emotions to rule your actions – if your spouse has left and filed for divorce it is time for you to take action. Get an attorney and do what you need to do to protect yourself. • Don’t use the same lawyer. Each party should obtain separate counsel and get separate advice. Even if you plan to work things out amicably, one lawyer cannot equally represent conflicting or different interests.

Final tenant named at IDC

By Christian Sorrell • Pedcor Companies announced last week that it has signed a lease with Especially Wicker to open a 1,200-square-foot retail showroom at the Indiana Design Center, 200 S. Range Line Rd. The new showroom will open in March. Especially Wicker is a furniture and design company specializing in outdoor and indoor living spaces as well as high end patio furniture. In addition to providing all types of furniture, Wicker also provides design services for spaces such as sun rooms, vacation homes, country clubs and more. Especially Wicker has a showroom at 4025 E. 82nd St., Indianapolis. With the leasing of the Especially Wicker space, the IDC is now completely occupied, a major accomplishment for the public-private partnership. “We are excited to have a fully occupied

building and about the merchandise mix offered through tenants at the Indiana Design Center,” said Melissa Averitt, senior vice president for Pedcor Companies. “With over 30 businesses in the Indiana Design Center, the stories of collaboration on design projects happen each day. Showrooms and professionals in the building have created strong relationships due to new proximity to one another and continue to elevate Indiana’s design community.” Averitt has driven the leasing process of the building since the start of the project three years ago. “Pedcor is proud to have partnered with the City of Carmel to develop the Indiana Design Center and see Mayor (Jim) Brainard’s vision of creating a design resource for the state through to completion,” Averitt said. “As a developer, we value the opportunity to be part of successful public-private partnerships that improve the community we call home.”

• Indiana addresses four main issues in Divorce: Property division, Child Custody, Child Visitation and Child Support • Indiana has "no fault" divorce, which means you don't have to prove either spouse did anything wrong to get a divorce. The spouse who wants a divorce just has to tell the court that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" to get a divorce. There is really nothing the other spouse can do to stop a divorce. • All assets and property are generally divided up 50/50%. Even if you had significant assets prior to the marriage, the judge will generally view it as marital property and split evenly, unless they have a good reason not to do so or if there was a sound prenuptial agreement in place.

COMMUNITY Philanthropy

Be entertained, support a cause Commentary by Jeff Worrell The precision moves, so well done, they tell a story. Forty-four faces, every one with a smile shining brightly, practice daily to make sure not a hand is out of place or a step misdirected. To be a Carmel Ambassador is an accomplishment in itself. But to be a member of the award winning Carmel Ambassadors takes continuous daily practice. They are a competition choir, preparing for the weekend contest circuit. They are usually joined by the all female Carmel Accents, who strive for melodious perfection and travel to the same venues. You can be assured the Carmel Ambassadors and Accents have represented Carmel High School and our community very well as they take home trophies almost every time they take the stage. The bus ride home is usually very sweet as losses seldom occur. Just watching an Ambassador or Accent show is always magical and a win for the audience. For Carmel residents, your chance to enjoy your very own Carmel Ambassadors and Accents performances of their 2013 competition set is March 20 at 7:30 pm in the Dale E Graham Auditorium at Carmel High School. Tickets are available at the door for $10 or $5 in the balcony. This is the third year for the unique concert called Concert for the Community. I say unique

because this is not just a concert but a gift. For the last three years, the kids have been using their musical talent to accomplish two major goals. First, they want to share their hard work with their community. But most important, they want to finish the year by giving something back; to support a local charity. So if you should hear a cute little bark or a well intentioned howl during the applause; that would be Mac, Molly or Lilly just showing their appreciation. The Cairn Terriers most certainly to be invited to the show are the working members of TheraPets of Indiana, chosen to receive a portion of the ticket sales. A nonprofit corporation formed to provide animal-assisted therapy and activities in hospitals, nursing homes, school and home settings, TheraPets is most active with St.Vincent Hospital Indianapolis where the dogs are on-call seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Visitations are done in a way that increases emotional well being, promotes healing and improves the quality of life for patients. So, put March 20 on your calendar and wear quiet shoes. You will not be able to control the tapping of your toes. Jeff Worrell is a member of the Carmel Redevlopment Commission. He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on cable channel 16.

Technology company expands Polleo Systems, a cloud computing and strategic technology servicer, announced plans last week to expand its Carmel headquarters, creating up to 36 new jobs by 2016. “Polleo Systems is proof of the innovative talent that calls the Hoosier State home. Our high-tech industry is experiencing rapid growth as companies continue to realize the many advantages of doing business in Indiana,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corp. The company plans to invest $2.5 million to expand its cloud platform, as well as lease and equip a new Carmel facility. Polleo Systems is planning to hire new system engineers, account executives and technicians for its north side location. Interested applicants should email their resumes to “The decision to continue our growth in Indiana is highlighted by the state’s commitment to small businesses and the opportunities that the state makes available to support our development,” said Talbott Sumners, president of Polleo Systems. “We feel that Indiana welcomes the high-tech community and companies like Polleo Systems.” Founded in 2011 by Sumners, Polleo Systems provides cloud computing and technology services for small and medium-sized businesses.

The company, which is also opening an additional facility in Orlando, Fla., was recently named a 2013 TechPoint Mira Awards finalist in the category of IT/Tech Service Excellence and Innovation. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Polleo Systems up to $300,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $40,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Indiana residents are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Carmel also supported this project. “We are thrilled about the expansion and addition of new jobs at Polleo Systems’ current facility in Carmel City Center,” Mayor Jim Brainard said. “The city realizes a long-term gain through local investment and job creation in redevelopment areas such as City Center. Polleo Systems’ decision to invest and expand in this location demonstrates exactly the type of economic impact the city anticipated for Carmel and the region.” Polleo Systems is the latest company to announce plans to expand its Central Indiana operations. Just last month, Allegient announced its second expansion in the region in as many years. The high-tech business solutions firm will invest $225,000 to expand its Carmel operations, adding up to 36 new jobs.

Name: Chandan Gopalani I’m running the Carmel: Half Marathon My goal for the 2013 Carmel Marathon Weekend: To finish the half marathon in under two hours! The last time I ran, my time was 2 hours and 21 minutes. Why I run: Running is a great way to keep my body fit and healthy. And having a goal such as the Carmel Half Marathon is a great motivator for me to keep running! Favorite place to run in Carmel: West Carmel area around 131st Street and Towne Road. That area has wide spacious sidewalks that are ideal for running and biking. Pre-race rituals: Stretches and a nice healthy breakfast. If I’m not running, I’m… : Hanging out with my two daughters, Sakshi and Sanya! My advice for new runners: Running is a good thing for the body and the mind. All it needs is a little discipline and once you get in the routine, it gets easier and it’s a lot of fun. All the very best! Why I like living and running in Carmel: Carmel is a great family friendly place to live and grow a family. The schools are excellent and the people are great. Our family is really happy to be a part of Carmel. For more information on the Carmel Marathon Weekend, visit

Our forefathers got it correct Commentary by John Acceturo In the last election, Republicans won super majorities in the State House and Senate, along with the governorship. This would give anyone the impression that there would be total agreement on bills and other issues being considered in this year’s legislative session. That is far from what is really happening. Gov. (Mike) Pence’s 10-percent state income tax cut was given little attention by Speaker Brian Bosma and the House. Instead the House wants to invest more, or in a layperson language, spend more. Their version of the budget doesn’t include the Governor’s proposed cut. However, don’t fret because Sen. Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville), who leads the Senate budgeting process, will likely express different priorities. The Senate’s budget proposal will follow State revenue projects to be released around April, and it is obvious to everyone that Sen. Kenley knows his stuff. Disagreement between House and Senate Republican doesn’t end there. We also have the Transit Bill authored by Jerry Torr, (R-Carmel) which recently passed the House. Rep. Torr indicates a new transit system is required to keep this a world class city. What

city was he talking about? It will allow 10 counties in the metro area to hold a referendum on whether to raise the county option income tax up to .3 percent to support local share for a new transit system. By the way, in Hamilton County that means a 30-percent increase in our county option income tax. Hamilton and Marion counties would be voting on the referendum in 2014. However, the bill still has to pass the Republican dominated Senate where support doesn’t seem to be bubbling over. So it looks as if once again, the House and Senate are on different pages. So what do we really have with the Republican super majority in both chambers? It seems to me we have a House that wants more spending and a Senate and Governor that want to cut taxes. Maybe our forefathers were smarter than we think when they established our system of government. They provided for checks and balances with two houses in the legislature and the executive and judicial branches.

Former ‘Tonight Show’ talent coordinator now producing her own life in Carmel By Christian Sorrell • During the past 40 years, Carmel resident and Indianapolis native Deb Roccaforte, 63, has worked across the nation in the entertainment and event planning industries. Her storied career has sent her to both sides of the country and many places in between. Now living in Carmel with her husband, Michael, Roccaforte recently sat down with Current to reflect on years gone by. What led Roccaforte back home to Indiana at the helm of her own business, Forté? The answer lies in a career spanning the past 40 years and stretching from Indianapolis to New York to Philadelphia to Los Angeles, and now, to Carmel.

Local beginnings

Roccaforte began as an intern for Indianapolis’ Channel 6 in 1968. As an intern, she was tasked with pushing out advertisements, manning the teleprompter and anything else that was needed of her. A little more than a year later, Roccaforte made her way to Channel 8 where she wrote documentaries, first working on “The Roadbuilders,” a piece on the construction of I-465. “Early on, I had some good mentors that said, ‘experience, experience, experience,’” Roccaforte said. She has been following that advice closely ever since, having gained experience coordinating telethons, directing a dance company and producing television in three different markets across the country, including a two-year stint at “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson in 1970.

From Indianapolis to New York Roccaforte, initially brought to New York City by her model-

Meet Deb Roccaforte

• Hometown: Indianapolis • Residence: Carmel • Age: 63 • Family: Husband, Michael Roccaforte; 3 adult children living in Indianapolis; 7 grandchildren with an eighth on the way • Education: Indiana University, Journalism; Butler University, Radio and Television • Career History: Assistant Talent Coordinator, “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson; Head Talent Coordinator, “The Mike Douglas Show;” Director, Dance Kaleidoscope; Owner, Forte LLC • Hobbies: Gemology, gourmet cooking, Notre Dame football, wearable art • Most embarrassing "Tonight Show" moment: I was going to get Paul Williams for his pre-interview, and he was sitting there with his manager, who looked like a blond beetle, and then there was Paul, 5-feet, 1-inch tall, rotund and (someone who) doesn’t look like what you would expect a singer to look like, so I go right up to his manager and say ‘Mr. Williams, we are ready for you,’” said Roccaforte, laughing. “He looked like he should have been the performer! I was just mortified. I was sure I was going to be fired, but Paul was so kind and gracious. It was really great.” 14 | March 5, 2013

ing career, was brought on “The Tonight Show” as an assistant talent coordinator. Roccaforte researched guests, conducted pre-interviews and wrote guest notes that she hand delivered to Carson each day at 2 p.m. “Johnny was an extremely quiet man,” Roccaforte said. “There was something very vulnerable about him. You wanted to do your best for him, and you kind of wanted to protect him even though there was nothing about his demeanor that would say, ‘protect me.’” In 1971, Roccaforte left “The Tonight Show” for “The Mike Douglas Show,” where she quickly was promoted to head talent coordinator. She was responsible for planning, booking and clearing all the guests on the show during her time in Philadelphia. Roccaforte came face to face with a number of celebrities. One day, William Holden sat on the edge of her desk and bummed cigarettes all afternoon. Another, George Carlin, came into the office, tried out new material and just sat and talked. Roccaforte’s prize booking was a weeklong co-hosting of the show by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Ono had an album and a book to promote, but Roccaforte negotiated a meeting with Lennon as a part of the booking In the end, both Lennon and Ono were brought on board to co-host in what was one of the show’s most colorful weeks. Lennon and Ono selected guests to be on the show during their hosting week. Their selections included Bobby Seale, cofounder of the Black Panther Party, several individuals wanted by the FBI at the time and Jerry Rubin, one of the Chicago Seven. “I couldn’t get clearance from Westinghouse (Broadcasting, the show's distributor) to book the people (Lennon) and Yoko wanted because we would have been busted,” said Roccaforte, laughing.

Roccaforte, center, was in the princess court of the 1968 500 Festival.

Back to Indiana

After moving to Los Angeles in late 1973, Roccaforte began a period of moving in and out of the production industry while simultaneously starting a family. During this time, she was in charge of producing a telethon for boxer Sugar Ray Robinson’s youth foundation. Roccaforte also started a stained-glass business and a sweater-design business, always being one to stay busy. In 1992, Roccaforte began working for Michael at the Indianapolis-based corporate event planning and production business that she now owns. By 1995, the couple was married and has been working together ever since. “We’re married, we work together, and we like each other,” Roccaforte said. “Michael is extremely artistic and creative and really, really technically savvy with everything that needs to go on with (Forté).”

Roccaforte, left, and her father participated in a Pro-Am tournament at Harbour Trees Golf and Beach Club in 1978.

The work continues

The future is bright for both Roccaforte and Forté as she shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. Roccaforte is continuing to produce and plan events throughout the state, the nation and the world at large. “The best part about my life is that no two weeks are ever the same,” Roccaforte said. “Sometimes they are really hard weeks, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.” For an extended version of this story, visit www.currentincarmel.

VIEWS Opinion

The incredible shrinking presidency of Obama

Control vs. liberty It is our position that careful attention should be paid to the current gun control debate in order to balance liberty and gun ownership. Mothers are taking to the streets in the form of groups such as Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America, a grassroots effort formed in the wake of the devastating mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The group’s founder is Zionsville mother of five, Shannon Watts. This group, who advocates for common sense gun laws, has even dropped the term, “gun control” from their name in the hopes of lobbying successfully for a ban on assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, the requirement of background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases and the reporting of the sale of large quantities of ammunition to the ATF, as well as placing a ban on online sales of ammunition. What seems like common sense control to some sounds like a liberty infringement on the Second Amendment right to bear arms to others and an unnecessary penalty for responsible gun owners. While some may argue that gun violence is a people control problem and a mental health issue, hopefully reasonable heads will prevail in this important debate.

Three step program

Commentary by Terry Anker

During these past 25 years or so, I’ve spent the majority of my time launching start-up companies. To be fair, many of those have been brought forward by more insightful entrepreneurs to whom I simply acted as an investor and catalyst. With the passage of time, it has become clear that the people are often as important (or more) than the product. It has become clear that would-be entrepreneurs need advice as much (or more) as they need cash. And, it has become clear that the road to success is fraught with both internal and external perils. Along the way, three distinct risks have materialized. The first is at launch and is the most obvious. As a new enterprise is bringing together the various components required (usually money and manpower), testing ideas that are often little-more than concepts and pushing the limits of their ability and fortitude, the fledgling business is exposed to the widest variety of risks. Once past the launch, young entrepreneurs often fail to anticipate the third-year stretch.

This is when the company has survived, but fatigue and infighting have replaced inexperience as the main threat to success. The imagined life of a small business owner with flexible hours, financial gain and greater independence is overwhelmed by the stark reality of long hours, limited resources and endless government forms. Partners battle with parity of sacrifice and seeking personal balance. Like all phases in life, the stretch gives way around year seven to the baron. At this point, the company has succeeded in becoming established and is working its business plan. Money, time and other benefits are flowing. Entrepreneurs are lauded as brilliant, handsome and charming. Sycophants circle like ants at a picnic. As the prototypical American entrepreneur Ben Franklin said, “Success has ruined many a man.” Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@

Great thoughts come from the heart. - Marquis de Vauvenargues Current in Carmel

As press time clamped down on us, barring a last-minute miracle, President Barack Obama was to have ordered the much-feared sequestration, or across-the-board set of budget cuts, totaling $1.2 trillion, from defense and nondefense spending across the next 10 years. We’re assuming Obama isn’t displaying one-upmanship on this, because his only competition is the Republican Party. Really, considering that, how much game need he bring? The president has resorted to drama-queen status with comments such as, “It will jeopardize military readiness; it will eviscerate job-creating investments in education, energy and medical research” (and we assume the evisceration was set in motion by his economic team). In other words, this represents the same tired dime-store ploy of trying to scare Americans over what amounts to a 5-percent cut to domestic agencies and a 7-percent cut to the military. Bottom line: Those cuts in question, $85 billion, amount to 2.3 percent of total spending. According to the Wall Street Journal, the agencies the White House says can’t save 5 percent actually received an average increase in their budgets of 17 percent in the previous five years, not counting, of course, their $276 billion stimulus bonus. So how much smaller a thinker can our president be? We find it incredibly ironic that one of the top films of the year, “Lincoln,” about which much has been written, specifically related to President Abraham Lincoln’s leadership ability, intelligence, the skill with which he unified our nation and arguably took his place in history as one of the best presidents, if not the best. We now are faced with debatably the worst president in American history, and as this mess authoritatively becomes law of the land, as we anticipate it will, the impact of it won’t be known for some time.

Redirect the cops to CHS

Editor, I have the utmost respect for the law and the Carmel Police Dept. So you know, I have not received a ticket in the past few years, so I’m not writing because I’m a sour puss, but it sure seems to me that lately the Carmel police department has turned into mostly a revenue collector for the city, rather than remembering who works for who and being there to protect and most importantly, serve.  I’ll make my point by bringing up a conversation that I had with my son last week who goes to Carmel High School. He’s an athlete and an honor roll student, so unless he’s fooling me, he’s walking a pretty straight line, hopefully so. I put him on the spot when we were driving in

the car (I had him trapped!) and asked him how many kids he knew at CHS that do or sell drugs, not a question I could tell he wanted to, but definitely one he was going to, answer. He told me that he knew of a few kids that bragged that they “got high,” but what concerned me most was when he told me that “everybody” in school knows who sells stuff, pot and pills mostly. Why aren’t the police who are shooting their radar guns every other minute on Range Line and sitting in their cars ‘waiting’ for a ‘crime’ to happen on getting redirected over to CHS? It’s because busting the kids hustling drugs doesn’t bring in any revenue and writing tickets does. Ricky Williams, 46032

Carmel could learn from Franklin

Editor, On a recent trip to Nashville, I visited a suburb of the city called Franklin. As I walked down the charming brick paved main street, I said this is what downtown Carmel needs to feel like. There were boutiques to fit every wallet, interest and demographic. Clothing, gifts, toys and handmade treasures could all be found. I spent money and bought several items to take home. I drank a coffee and stopped for a meal. I

could have also seen a movie if time would have allowed. Downtown Carmel could be like this if the pieces were put together better. We have the dining, but now we need to have those shopping opportunities and family experiences that bring people out. I would highly recommend a field trip to Franklin be in order for the Carmel Arts & Design District Planning Committee. Carolyn Scott, 46033

Fear won’t limit me Commentary by Danielle Wilson Once again, I’m having a hard time figuring out what to write about this week. Should I go with the very uncomfortable exchange I had with my two daughters about puberty, or perhaps my family’s experience at the food pantry? Maybe I should share with you the surprising way people have reacted to the news that I’ll be traveling to North Africa this summer. It seems a hodgepodge of topics, but I think I can lump them altogether under one heading: Fear of the unknown. Let’s go with it. First up, periods. They scared me when I was a teen, and they scare me as a mother. How will my girls handle it? With embarrassment? Grace? Excitement? I’m encouraged by a conversation last weekend. My oldest casually mentioned that a friend of hers has “started” and then went into a very detailed explanation of her ordeal. As I was blushing and trying desperately to change topics, she proceeded to engage her younger sister in a debate over tampons versus pads. How sad I would have been to have missed that! Next, volunteering. This is the first time I’ve forced my kids to volunteer, and, of course, they complained the entire drive to the food pantry. I thought, if these children are rude, selfish, or just plain brats, even Jesus won’t be able to save them from my wrath. I almost turned around, but it’s Lent, darn it, and my kids need to do something

for someone else for a change. To my surprise, not only were they polite, enthusiastic and compassionate, but they actually enjoyed helping. When we left, they wanted to know when we could volunteer again. Very interesting. Finally, I won a teaching grant to study in Morocco, Egypt and Turkey this June. I am terrified. And what’s making my fear worse is the way people respond when I tell them where I’m going. “But, what about the terrorists?” is pretty much par for the course. Why are we all so afraid? I’m convinced it’s because we know so little about these cultures. To wit, my Facebook friends who have actually travelled to these countries, say, “I’m so jealous!” and “You’ll love the people!” Do I lie awake wondering whether I’ll be kidnapped in Cairo? Almost every night. Am I worried that my kids will grow up to be selfish, arrogant dillholes? Sometimes, yes. And am I concerned that my daughters will have a rough transition to womanhood? Definitely. But, I don’t want to be that person who deprives herself of new experiences and relationships because she can’t predict the future. Bottom line, it’s OK to fear the unknown, as long as that fear doesn’t limit you. Peace Out.

Just ask and I’ll get to it, maybe Commentary by Dick Wolfsie I don’t care if my wife goes through my pockets looking for money. I have no problem with her opening mail that is addressed to me. She can peek at my text messages all she wants. No big deal. But please, Mary Ellen, do not mess with my “to do” list. For almost 30 years, I have created such a list each night, having resisted technological advances: I have successfully poo-pooed Palm Pilots, bypassed BlackBerrys and ignored iPhones. Instead, I write my daily obligations on a mini yellow legal pad, each entry carefully arranged in chronological order, taking into account the route that must be negotiated the next day and the importance of the event. I fiddle with it all evening, often reconstructing it to account for each new activity that crops up. Just adding something to the bottom of the page would be unconscionable, so it must be recast to accurately reflect the change. The next morning, I am comforted by the list, knowing all the work behind its apparent simplicity. I consider it a piece of art. I knew something was amiss last week when I left Greenwood after a meeting, drove back to Indy to replace a burned-out light bulb in our garage and clean the cat’s litter box, then raced back to Greenwood for lunch. “Mary Ellen, have you done anything lately behind my back?”

“A bright guy like you? I’d never get away with it.” She had a point. Nevertheless, I had just driven 60 miles to clean a litter box and change a light bulb, so I was in no position to dwell in the intellectual limelight. My wife has always had unique ways of getting me to do chores. She resists coming right out and asking. Instead, she resorts to trickery and skullduggery. “Dick, you know those Colts play-off tickets? I think they flew up on the roof. I’m sure you’ll find them while you’re cleaning out the gutters.” I mean, how dumb do I look? It only took me three seasons to catch on to that little game. “Mary Ellen, I’m tired of all this chicanery. We are going to start a new system. If you want me to do a chore, you just come right out and ask me. Is that a deal?” “It’s a deal. Now could you please clean up the storeroom downstairs?” “Not this weekend. I’m watching a big golf match on TV.” “Could you fix the latch on the screen door?” “Sorry, I don’t have the right tools.” “Dick, this new system of yours doesn’t work.” “Works for me.”

‘Steel Magnolias’ blooming on Carmel stage By Maddie Scott • Carmel Community Players has been around since 1993 working to provide quality live dramatic and musical entertainment presentations that expand and develop creative, cultural and educational opportunities for the entire community. So far this season, Carmel Community Players has put on “Breaking Up is Hard to do” and “Joseph and Mary.” For the last fifteen months, the players have been working with director Jason Gloye on “Steel Magnolias.” Gloye worked with Carmel Community players when he was a teenager, so when artistic director, Lori Raffel, asked him if he would be interested in directing “Steel Magnolias” he was more than thrilled. Gloye Making his first debut as a director, Gloye is excited to share his masterpiece with the community. “Steel Magnolias” is a play about six courageous, bold, vulnerable, beautiful women who all experience life in their own unique ways. The play takes place in the 80s at a local beauty shop where women go to share because they can, support because they love, laugh at the good and help one another through the bad. “Each woman in this play has her own per18 | March 5, 2013

sonal, epic highs and her own crushing, raw lows,” Gloye said. It’s always a challenge to approach a play that has become a piece of culture via film,” Gloye said. “Steel Magnolias is a lot like the movie only without the men. And Gloye said he believed audiences would recognize the women in the play from their own personal lives, adding that these women exist off stage, in our own lives. The woman in “Steel Magnolias” help audiences realize everyone is going through something in their own personal way. “I think it would be good for the new generation of girls to come see the show” Raffel said. Raffel will also be taking on the role of Ouiser. “Choosing the cast for “Steel Magnolias” was one of the most rewarding parts of directing the play,” Gloye said. Many of the women in the cast have portrayed one of the other

characters in the play at some time or another. In addition to Raffell, the cast includes: Vickie Cornelis Phipps (M’Lynne), Sarah McGee (Shelby), Casey Votaw (Annelle), veteran Laura Baltzwill be taking on the role of (Truvy) and Joellyn Young will be taking on her first role at Carmel Community Players as (Clairee). “In the past few months, whenever I’ve mentioned “Steel Magnolias” to friends, family, or colleagues, I’m flooded with each person’s favorite outrageous line from the play… There’s no denying the hysterical writing in this piece,” Gloye said. Enjoy the laughter, revel in 80’s nostalgia, but don’t forget to take in the simple moments and the dynamic arc that each of these women experiences. Most importantly, don’t forget to acknowledge the real-life steel magnolias you come in contact with every day.

all month long!


Before the Twihards pile on too quickly for my less-than-gushing take on the final episode in the “Twilight” franchise, I just want to state for the record that I actually have read – and enjoyed! –the first novel of the series by Stephanie Meyer. And I even gave the third movie a positive review. But the decision to split the last book, “Breaking Dawn,” into two parts was an unwise one. It left the entire fourth movie and the first half of the fifth feeling like an endless stretch of exposition. The final culmination itself, though, is thrilling and filled with the sort of vital storytelling juices that seemed to get leeched out of “The

Twilight Saga” halfway through. The story opens with Bella (Kristen Stewart) having been turned by her vampire lover Edward (Robert Pattinson) into a fellow nosferatu. Their love child grows at an astonishing rate, but is viewed by the Voluturi, the vampire ruling clan, as an abomination. There’s a great big battle between vampires and werewolves, and some emotional exchanges that actually pluck the heartstrings. It wasn’t great, but the last “Twilight” movie didn’t suck. Movie: B-minus

Vaccinations: Are you up to date? Commentary by Belinda Watts, MD Vaccinations are most often associated with young children; however, adults also need vaccines to stay healthy. Vaccines cause the body to produce antibodies to fight infection and prevent disease. Depending on the disease, vaccines can provide lifelong immunity or maintain their effectiveness with “boosters” received over time. Today’s vaccines are very safe, and side effects are generally minor. Vaccines are administered by injection in the muscle or fatty tissue, usually in the upper arm of adults. Some people may experience redness, swelling or pain at the injection site and sometimes mild fever. Serious complications from vaccinations are rare. However, there are people with certain risk factors who should not be vaccinated. For example, if you are allergic to eggs or have a weakened immune system, consult your doctor before receiving vaccinations. The following vaccines are commonly recommended for adults: Flu vaccine – Prevents influenza; the seasonal flu virus changes from year to year, so annual vaccination is recommended for most adults, including pregnant women. Pneumococcal vaccine – Prevents 80 to 90 percent of pneumococcal disease (pneumonia, blood infections and meningitis); recommended once for adults over age 65 and for younger

adults with chronic diseases, such as lung and heart disorders, asthma and diabetes. Td vaccine – Prevents diphtheria and tetanus; adults should receive a booster every 10 years. Tdap vaccine – Prevents diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough); pertussis can be fatal in infants younger than three months; adults should receive the vaccine once after age 19, especially if they are around newborns; pregnant women should be vaccinated between the 27th and 36th week of pregnancy. Herpes zoster (shingles) vaccine – Helps prevent re-activation of the chicken pox virus, which causes shingles in adults; adults should receive the vaccine once after the age of 50 to 60. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine – Prevents HPV infection, which causes genital warts, cervical cancer in women and other types of cancer in men and women; recommended for young adults up to age 26; full immunity requires three doses. It’s best to talk with your primary care doctor at least annually about any vaccinations you may need. Belinda Watts, MD, specializes in preventive and general adult medicine. She is located at IU Health Physicians Internal Medicine, 1650 W. Oak St., Ste. 104, in Zionsville. She can be reached by calling the office at 873-8910.

DOUGH Business

Every group needs a leader Commentary by David Cain I asked, well really told, both my kids to pick up the toys in the toy room before bed. The next morning, the toys lay strewn across the floor unmoved from the previous night. I call it the group affect. When you assign a task to more than one person or a group, without very specific actionable items or a group leader, the task often languishes. Think of a time you asked or assigned the same task to two people? It’s common for it to go undone. Ask two people to turn out the lights and the next morning the lights are still on. Ask five coworkers to consider something and it goes unconsidered. Add three people to the distribution list of a contact form and no one answers. It’s important to assign a leader when putting multiple people on a task. It creates singular responsibility for that project or task. Void of that person, void of that responsibility and the

group affect creeps in adding to the possibility that it won’t get done. I’ve been readdressing the way I address tasks and projects. It’s important to have a responsible person for the things you want to see through. When I send an email, I put only one person on the “to” line and in the body of the note I mention them by name, regardless of how many people are copied. I am clear when we discuss anything as to who is responsible for the delivery of the result. And, at home, I’m more deliberate when tasks are assigned as to who is the leader and who is solely responsible. If you don’t, the ultimate responsible party will be looking back at you in the mirror.

These are facts!

Baby boomers make big market – By 2030, the population of people older than 65 will hit 72 million. The big market has pushed JPMorgan to track what stocks will make bunches of bucks when it comes to baby boomers through the “Aging Population Index.” – Produce problem – If Congress doesn’t change the course of spending cuts, Americans could be seeing a price increase in beef and chicken, as a big cut would disrupt programs that ensure food safety. The plants responsible for getting the food out to consumers might shut down for up to 15 days. –

Pay up, internationals – The Ohio State University decided on a simple way to make some cash quick. Last fall, the university started charging international undergrads an extra $1,000 to attend. That doesn’t include the already in place out-of-state tuition charges. – Still ridiculous – With the Oscars last week, the customary “Everyone Wins at the Oscars Nominee Gift Bag” was handed out. The goodies actually hit a low point in the past five years with a value of $47,803. Homeowner’s policies at work – If you have the misfortune of having a meteorite crash through the ceiling during the middle of the night or while you’re at work, you won’t have much to worry about if you have a homeowner’s policy. That type of policy covers objects that fall from the sky, including the smelly kind that fall from airplanes. – Pass the ketchup – Mega mogul Warren Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, and 3G Capital are pooling together $28 million to snatch up Heinz. –

Misuse could be a Hoosier thing Commentary by Jordan Fischer A Facebook friend recently posted a rant about grammar pet peeves. I immediately checked it out because, well, I’m not going to pass up free column ideas, am I? Near the top of her list was the misuse of “then” and “than.” She also claimed that Hoosiers are especially prone to this, as we don’t seem to be able to pronounce the two words distinctly from one another. To test her theory, I dipped back into my native southern Indiana drawl and gave the words a spin. Unfortunately, I think she may have a point. First, however, let’s talk about the usage of “then” and “than.” “Then” is an adverb used to indicate time or sequences of items or events: “I got in my car and then started the ignition.” “I served dinner and then we ate.” “The buzzer sounded and then the game was finished.” “Than” is a conjunction used for comparisons: “My brother is taller than I am.” “My new car gets better gas mileage than my old one.” “It’s hotter outside than in the house.” “Than” is almost always paired with an adjective or adverb,

such as “greater,” “more,” “less,” “higher,” etc. I don’t often take on pronunciation in this column, but for the good of the order, I thought I’d take on a few sentences about these words. We Hoosiers, being nothing if not efficient in all things, will often substitute the schwa sound – a short, neutral vowel sound, typically an “eh” or “uh” – for more prominent vowel sounds in everyday speech. The schwa turns words like “occasion” into “uhccasion,” and makes “then” and “than” nearly indistinguishable. The similarity of pronunciation could also be a contributing factor to their misuse in written communication. The solution to this is, as usual, fairly simple. After remembering the rules on how to use “then” and “than,” just remember also to stress the correct syllable. Then finish the rest of your sentence so you don’t look like a weirdo.

To test her theory, I dipped back into my native southern Indiana drawl and gave the words a spin.

A new Cuba is coming, quickly

Now offering

Commentary by Don Knebel My wife and I recently visited Cuba as part of a U.S. government licensed “people-to-people” group. As expected, we found a country in which the clocks seem to have stopped in about 1959. But, we also found a country moving inexorably toward a more entrepreneurial and open future. The most common reminders of a bygone era are the thousands of pre-Revolution Chevrolets and other now-classic American cars, kept running by resourceful mechanics and now the country’s favorite taxis. Equally well-preserved members of the Buena Vista Social Club perform in Havana’s famous National Hotel, popular with Russian diplomats and featuring a statue of a young Nat King Cole. Pictures of Che Guevara in battle fatigues are everywhere. But it is a mistake to see Cuba only in terms of such backward-looking images, powerful as they are. More than 50 years after the Revolution, a new Cuba is emerging. Now free to start businesses and keep the profits, more than 250,000 enterprising Cubans are providing everything from taxi services in the family car to street corner food from push carts imported from Costa Rica. Dozens of farm co-operatives, renting land from the government but sharing their profits among members, are demonstrating how productive Cuban agriculture can be

over 4,000 exceptional color options!

given incentives to be efficient and imaginative. And in January, all foreign travel restrictions on Cuban citizens were eliminated, giving them a leg up on Americans whose unauthorized travel to Cuba is illegal. The young people with whom we spoke are in favor of these changes, which they see as providing a chance for a better life. But, like their parents, they fear that a more entrepreneurial society will put at risk the free education and health care and the profound sense of national unity Cubans cherish. Recognizing this risk, the government


is loosening the restrictions gradually, but free enterprise is contagious. It won’t be long before Havana has its first fast food restaurant and a Starbucks on every corner can’t be that far away. If you want to see Cuba before it loses its gritty nostalgic appeal, you had better hurry. Don Knebel is a Zionsville resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

INSIDE & OUT Decorating

A designer is cheaper than divorce Commentary by Vicky Earley A good interior designer can nail the right sofa in an instant. A good interior designer can pinpoint the right window treatment without blinking, and a really good interior designer is also a marriage counselor. I’m not talking about the “distraught couple perched on the edge of a chair wringing their hands” type of marriage counselor. I mean the type that can take different personalities and blend them into one decorating style. When taste, approach, attitude and priorities differ in a marriage, it is the perfect climate for decorating limbo. Novice couples assume decorating will be quick, effortless and end with lunch at the food court. They might make a list and head out for a weekend decorating adventure. After several exhausting and futile hours, tensions often flare and a hasty retreat is made before a full-fledge battle erupts. If the couple makes it beyond the point of decorating Armageddon, the risk of the “it looked great at the store, so let’s just get it done” impulse purchase mistake is often the next level. When the realization that the sofa that looked nice in the showroom with 30-foot ceilings, looks gargantuan in the home with a 9-foot ceiling, some pretty heinous thoughts might come to mind. To avoid a prison term, it might be the time to admit that hiring a professional isn’t

such a bad idea, after all. Enter the interior designer, your couple’s communication specialist, facilitator, mediator, magician and visual artist. Remember, couples rarely agree 100 percent on matters of taste, and finding a solution that will make both parties happy is a delicate balance. In the first meeting, everyone’s goals need to be on the table. This is the time to admit that the dining room table handed down from your grandma makes you want to eat off the floor and that you are exhausted just thinking of sleeping one more night in a waterbed. Budget is typically the elephant in the room. Two people can have different ideas about how much it should cost to redo a room because it is a priority to one and not even a blip on the radar to the other. A good designer can explain the cost factors that make no sense to those outside the interior design inner circle, like why a chair can cost as much as a sofa and why a delicate silk can cost 10 times more than a durable textile. Remember, the next time a fight erupts about the number of pillows on the sofa, a designer is far more affordable than a divorce attorney!

Fostering is part of the overcrowding solution Commentary by Lisa Beals Before you read today’s column, take a look at your dog and realize how grateful he is for you providing him with a comfortable home, a warm bed, plenty of food and water and lots of love. You can’t even imagine your best friend lost and ending up in a shelter, confused, lonely and scared. You certainly can’t even imagine abandoning your dog at a shelter. But the sad truth is that according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. Shelter intakes are about evenly distributed between those animals relinquished by their owners and those picked up as strays. These numbers are troubling. These numbers are unacceptable for a civilized society in 2013. Enough about the problem. What is the solution? Perhaps the solution is not so easy, but what I would really like you to consider today is fostering. You can save lives by providing a temporary home for a shelter dog until it is adopted. All too frequently as shelters fill up, they have to make painful decisions about which

dogs are put on “the list.” Unfortunately, it’s a numbers game. Sometimes a dog may need only a short term stay in a foster home until it is transported to his forever home. By providing the dog a home for a couple of weeks, you free up space in the shelter for another dog so that he is “safe.” Other foster dogs may stay with you for a couple of months. Your home, your time and your love are invaluable in developing the dog’s confidence and ability to trust again. There is nothing more satisfying than “springing” a dog from a stressful shelter and seeing the joy on his face as he gazes out the car window and hearing that first sigh of relief when he steps into your home and realizes that he can finally sleep without fear. So be a part of the solution. Buy a crate, fluff up a bed, and fill a dish with some food and water. Open your heart and your home to a foster dog. You won’t regret it.

SWITCH IT UP! Everyone gets the impulse from time to time to change their appearance. Is now your time? All it takes is a simple hair cut or fresh color to make you feel like a new person! The short bob is one of the most popular haircuts again this year. This hair cut is perfect if you are looking for not only a trendy style but an elegant look that is practically timeless.

SUIT UP from: Whether you’re buying your first suit or just updating your wardrobe, the question of whether you should buy a suit with one, two or three buttons will likely be one of your biggest dilemmas. Your lifestyle, body type and the trend factor of the garments themselves all play a role in determining which style of suit you’ll want to shell out the cash for. To ensure you’re purchasing the right suit for your body and your current wardrobe needs, we’ve broken down the rules for the who, what, where, and when of wearing one-button, two-button or three-button suits -- of the single-breasted variety.

Not looking to chop your length? Add bangs to any length of hair for an instant style update.

The three-button suit Best for: The three-button suit is an excellent option for men taller than six feet because the buttons on the jacket reach higher up on the chest, making it more comfortable and visually appealing on taller men. The three-button suit jacket is also an option for waistcoat enthusiasts.

Hair color can have a dramatic effect on an otherwise plain hair style. Rich natural brown colors are ultra-hot this year. Natural blondes and reds are big as well. Strategically placed highlights, lowlights, or panels can accentuate texture and add tons of character to your style.

The two-button suit Best for: The two-button suit is the universal standard because its framelengthening properties complement virtually all builds, and it has an enduring, classic appeal. If you have a short torso, two-button suits are also the best way to go.

Always check with a Salon 01 hairstylist and get their opinion before making your final decision on what new trend works best on you. After all, they are professionals in this industry and their opinion can help you make the right decision.

The one-button suit Best for: Men with lean frames who want to appear stylishly sleek should check out one-button suits. However, avoid splurging on this suit; if you already own several two- or three-button suits, you won’t wear the one-button suit as often.

INSIDE & OUT Indoors

Addition accommodates books, cigars

Commentary by Larry Greene

ORIGINAL OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE: The owners moved into their new house in the Thorpe Creek subdivision in Fishers in November of 2011 with the intention of adding on. “We are outdoor people, and our previous home had a four-season room. We loved it, so we wanted to build one at our new house.” The homeowners also wanted a large, multi-level deck attached to the addition, with a pergola at the outdoor entrance. DESIGN PHASE: One homeowner is an avid reader, so she needed lots of light and a comfortable place to sit. The other homeowner is a cigar aficionado, so he needed a state-of-the art exhaust system in the space. “We had a commercial grade fan put in for the cigar smoke. It is whisper quiet, and it draws the smoke out immediately so it does not bother my wife.” The designer came up with idea to clip the corners and add the ceiling beams. The goal was to replicate the look of their last home with a plank ceiling. DECK CONSTRUCTION: The main level of the exterior deck was built 24 inches below the finished floor of the addition, and the second

Before level of the deck was 31 inches below. Treated wood decking with hidden fasteners was installed perpendicular to the house walls. The treated wood handrails were 36 inches high with powder coated aluminum balusters in black. The pergola was built out of treated lumber. FINISHES: The four-season addition was meant to look like an extension of the interior of the home. Maple, black-painted cabinets were installed in the wet bar area, with a solid surface countertop in Tempest color. The ceramic floor tiles are in a Warm Pewter color. FAVORITE FEATURES: According to the

After homeowner, “Our favorite part is the eastern exposure. The light in the morning is so serene. I love the deck and my wife loves the porch.” This outdoor living project gave the homeowners another way to enjoy their beautiful yard all year long.
