he is calm and absolutely confident. As she carefully affixes the stamp to the last envelope and drops the entire bundle in the mailbox, she knows she has made the right choice. She could be an event planner trying to put together the perfect retirement party or Bat mitzvah. Or, she could be a business professional planning a mid-size trade show or a business luncheon. But, in this case, she is an excited bride to be; totally confident her wedding will be special because her invitations include the words Ritz Charles. There is good reason for her confidence in the decision to choose the Ritz Charles. She knows the trusted name in our community has a reputation for excellence, having served central Indiana family's entertainment and catering needs for more than two decades. She also knows by reputation and experience, the staff at the Ritz will attend to her every need and will strive for perfection even to the smallest detail. But what central Indiana families do not know is a major transformation has slowly been taking place. A new era; a brand new chapter in the story of Ritz Charles is being written for all to read.
â€œAn exciting new chapter is being written in the story of Ritz Charles.â€? Immediately after walking through the front door and into the newly remodeled lobby, she had to remind herself she has been here many times before. A new modern yet classic look is what first alerts her senses this is not your father's Ritz Charles. The entire facility has been remodeled, redecorated, reconfigured and remade into the new, dazzling Ritz Charles. From a complete overhaul of the exterior campus including flowers, sidewalks and parking lot, to the interior where nothing remains the same. Breathtaking changes that must be seen to believe include carpeting, tables, chairs, lighting, wall coverings, ceilings and yes, even the trim; all new.
It is one thing to upgrade the look and feel of the facilities, but quite another challenge to improve on what the Ritz is really known for; excellent food. Vowing to let nothing escape a critical eye for evaluation and improvement, new menus and artistic food presentations have been inspired by Executive Chef Warren Miklos. His advanced recipes show off the stunning color and style of today's foods which also promise to delight the palate. Always known for using the highest quality meats, fresh caught fish and naturally grown chicken products, Warren and his skilled team of culinarians have pledged to keep seeking flavorful perfection. Talented Executive Pastry Chef, Amy Barnes has not escaped fame for her ability to capture any bride's vision of the perfect looking and creamy tasting wedding cake. She is featured on an ongoing basis in many recognized trade magazines. But, there is much more to her work than just sculpting wedding cakes. Every pastry for the early breakfast meeting to the sweet treats served after a full banquet are created from only the finest ingredients. Everything she creates is made from scratch, per event as though it just came warm out of the oven on a bright and cheerful Sunday morning. The Ritz is not just a place, but a sought after destination enhanced by caring and talented staff. Brides to be choose the Ritz Charles to lock in that feeling of confidence and allow the professionally accomplished staff to work on her behalf creating the perfect day. With her invitations safely in the mail, this bride to be can relax, knowing everything is under control. But, it is hard not to get too excited knowing her guests will be awestruck at the transformation they see when they too, walk through the front doors for the first time and experience the NEW Ritz Charles.
Passersby traveling on US 31 use the Ritz Charles distinctive Wedding Chapel and the transparent Garden Pavilion as eye catching landmarks. These two unique facilities both received their share of attention for a fresh, new appearance without interfering with any of the characteristics guests have come to admire. The Chapel is simple in style yet elegant in feel. The 35 foot vaulted ceilings are not only dramatic for the perfect wedding ceremony but they acoustically enhance the sound of music. For even more variety, the Garden Pavilion featuring the famous glass walls and ceiling offer the special feel of a beautiful outdoor venue. Seventeen French doors swing open wide and invite guests onto a beautiful floral patio, always to the delight of anyone with a camera.

Mike Pence and Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard joined GEICO Chairman Tony Nicely to announce the GEICO’s plans to locate a customer service center in Carmel, creating up to 1,200 new jobs by 2016. GEICO will invest millions to lease, renovate and equip a 109,000-square-foot space at 101 W. 103rd St. The new office, which is expected to be operational by late April, will house professional insurance agents, their training and supervisory teams and additional management and support staff with an average salary of approximately $30,000. “Indiana continues to win the business of leading corporations like GEICO,” Pence said. “While our greatest selling point is always our quality workforce, Indiana’s fiscal stability, low-tax climate and business-friendly policies make days like today happen. We welcome GEICO to Indiana and are confident the gecko will find that our state works for business.” Nicely said he was very pleased that his company’s growth made it possible for the new office and the new opportunities. “We chose central Indiana because we know there is a talented and well-educated workforce in this area, and we want to offer people long-term career opportunities as we continue to expand,” he said.

When a company with a solid reputation such as GEICO decides to invest in our city, we realize a long-term gain through economic development and job growth. With the creation of 1,200 jobs by 2016, this is great news for Carmel and the region,” Brainard said. GEICO’s announcement puts the total number of jobs slated to come to Carmel by 2016 at more than 1,500. Baldwin & Lyons, Inc. and NextGear Capital recently announced that they would be expanding, creating more than 300 new jobs during the next several years.

Ray examines Daniels, Pence and the expansion of Medicaid – Current columnist Andy Ray weighs in with his thoughts on the fiscal side of Gov. Daniels’ time in office, the transition to Gov. Pence and what the expansion of Medicaid could mean for Indiana. Ray writes, “Gov. Daniels’ health plan was great. But now, it’s been trumped at the federal level.

Carmel City Council – March 18 What happened: Increase in thefts from cars What it means: Councilor Luci Snyder shared details from the criminal investigations report. Carmel’s southeast district experienced nine thefts from cars in the first week of January alone. There have been 36 thefts from cars so far this year. Head of criminal investigations Major Randy Schalburg told Snyder these thefts were “crimes of opportunity.” Citizens parked unlocked cars in driveways with valuables inside. In one instance, the keys were left in the ignition. These vehicles become targets for criminals. “Carmel is not Camelot,” Snyder said. “Our police need your cooperation and common sense.” Police recommend parking vehicles in locked garages if available. Vehicles parked in the open should be locked and valuables stored in the trunk or hidden.
What happened: Citizen concerned with street conditions What it means: John Acceturro addressed the council about street damages and the possibility of a low repaving budget. “I understand there’s only $500,000,” he said. Acceturro presented photos of potholes, sinking pavement and cracked brick in areas east of both Meridian Street and Keystone Parkway. He pointed out damages included the high profile Arts & Design District. Acceturro suggested increased truck traffic with heavy loads from the Keystone project may have caused the damages at 136th Street and Carey Roads. Councilor Woody Rider said street conditions remain a priority. Rider encouraged him and others to report damage to the Street Dept. “They are very diligent with repairs,” he said. Rider also stated that citizens may contact council representatives who would be happy to make the call. Mayor Brainard said the repaving budget totals $1.7 million from separately-named funds.

App aims to zap food waste By Maddie Scott • email@example.com Rajesh Karmani, developer of the Zero Percent app, made an appearance March 19 at Einstein Bros Bagels to provide a live demonstration of how his new food donation-focused app works. The Zero Percent app was created to make it possible for restaurants to donate food to those less fortunate quickly and easily. Einstein Bros Bagels, 2350 E. 116th St., has partnered with Zero Percent in order to help Carmel get one step closer to zero food waste. Karmani and his team, Omar Muniz and Julie Carlson, showed local nonprofit organizations and food pantries Second Helping, Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s Merciful Help Center and Food Link how easy it is to create a free account for the local restaurant. Zero Percent is location-based, so only volunteers within six miles of a location will be notified. “The issue at hand isn’t getting enough volunteers (to collect food donations), rather it is having reliable volunteers,” said one volunteer as the others shook their heads in agreement. “Zero Percent is fixing the problem food pantries might encounter when it comes to reliability,” said John Williamson, president and founder of Food Rescue. Zero Percent makes it possible
for volunteers who aren’t able to pick up food to quickly let food pantries know so that a message may then be sent on to the next volunteer. After creating the account for the Einstein Bros, Karmani demonstrated how the employees would enter any food remaining at the end of the day. Once the amount of food has been entered into the system, it alerts volunteers at local soup kitchens and shelters through text messages and e-mail until it can find a volunteer who is able to pick up the donation. “It’s a great way to use technology,” said Jayne Slatm, director of Merciful Help Center. “Technology rescuing food is a new angle in the war on hunger,” Williamson said. “The statistics on food waste are shocking,” Williamson said. “Today, 40 percent of food in the United States goes uneaten.” Zero Percent started in Champaign-Urbana, Ill., and has since spread to the Phoenix, Denver and now Indiana. Zero Percent has also had success at an Einstein Bros Bagels store in Urbana where it recently diverted 100 leftover bagels to the local Salvation Army. Zero Percent hopes to start a cultural movement against food waste.

Record-breaking fundraiser Commentary by Jeff Worrell As a kid growing up, I remember the Jerry Lewis Telethon to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy as a very big deal. For two day I was glued to the TV watching group after group march on stage and hand Jerry a giant cardboard check. I convinced my parents to drive me to the downtown area of Des Moines, Iowa, so I could see Jerry and those checks and give him some money of my own. I don’t believe I was permanently scarred to learn Jerry was not anywhere near Des Moines, Iowa, but I do remember getting caught up in all of the excitement once I did get downtown. The local effort to support the national telethon was electrifying and clearly required a lot of work. For a host of different reasons, the Jerry Lewis Telethon is not quite as big a deal for me these days as it used to be. However, I wonder whether today’s younger generation will look back from adulthood and remember the Carmel Education Foundation Telethon. A long time 27-year tradition went through a major renovation this year. The results, a whopping $35,000 in donations shattering all previous records. Yes, that is 35 with a capital “T.” The children in the Carmel Clay School District will benefit from the generosity of time and talent from the Carmel community. Headed up by an All Star threesome of Stephanie McDonald, Janet Corbin
and Barb Danquist, the money raised will go directly to improving academic achievement. The Carmel Education Foundation funds educational classroom grants and college scholarships. Students from the National Honor Society and CHS Key Club along with parents and friends executed an outbound calling program to reach out and ask for donations. During their telephone blitz, they enjoyed food and snacks from some of Carmel’s most loyal and supportive businesses. Joe’s Butcher Shop, Jimmy Johns, Which Wich and MCL Cafeteria made sure the outbound caller’s stomach did not grumble and interfere with the kindness and benevolence of Carmelites. The CEF Telethon was complete with entertainment designed to get callers to part with their dollars. Nine elementary school and 2 middle school choirs, jazz band and ORFF Ensembles performed to the delight of the live audience and Channel 99 viewers. It is widely accepted that Carmel Schools are highly competitive and a primary factor which helps to make Carmel great. The Carmel Education Foundation is doing its part to make sure that trend continues. Jeff Worrell is a member of the Carmel Redevelopment Commission. He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on cable channel 16. Contact him at jworrell@ advantagemedical.com

I’m a Carmel Runner Presented by the Carmel Marathon Weekend
Name: Amy (Mink) Poorman I’m running the Carmel: Marathon My goal for the 2013 Carmel Marathon Weekend: Finish my first full marathon and run the entire race. Poorman Why I run: Growing up my mom was a huge runner. All through middle school and high school, I played three sports year-round which controlled my life, and I realized I was not going to continue playing these sports in college so I turned to running to keep in shape. My mom passed away from breast cancer in 2006, and I feel every race I run she is there cheering me on. I had my first child in June and while I was pregnant ran 2 minis at weeks 2 and 32. Being a mom now and seeing her at the finish line will be a full circle for me, and I hope she too someday will want to run with me as I did with my mom. Favorite place to run in Carmel: I live in Claridge Farm so I have really nice loops through Cox Hall Gardens and the Village of West Clay. I love to be running with my sister chatting or pushing my jogging stroller with our dog. Pre-race rituals: I always eat a banana race day morning. I have been trying out different
gummies to take during the marathon to see what works! My mom would always say drink a cup of coffee race day morning, but I gave up coffee two years ago when I was on a trip to Sierra Leone, Africa, so I just stick to water now. If I’m not running, I’m: being a mom. I have an 8-month-old so I love to be spending time with her and my husband. I also love to read, cook and travel. My advice for new runners: Start small and never focus on distance. When I go out for runs I think to myself, “I am going to be running for x amount of time.” Build up to where you want to be and find someone to run with. Also, do not find excuses! Why I like living and running in Carmel: Carmel has great paths and awesome sidewalks to run! We are very fortunate to live in a city that supports running, walking and biking! Take advantage of all the great amenities your tax dollars pay for! I also love running in Carmel because my sister lives here, and we run together most mornings. I think it has made us closer and gives us time away from our kids to chat and talk.

Library’s future discussed By Nina Johnson • email@example.com On March 18, appointee Jim Hehner updated the city council with an overview of the Carmel Clay Public Library’s progress and five-year plans. Hehner opened his report with thanks to library director Wendy Phillips, stating “she’s one of the reasons our library runs so smoothly.” The building is 14-years-old and projects have included updating carpet and repurposing rooms for book club and middle school student activities. Security officers have been hired for after school hours when the number of patrons sometimes more than doubles. “In a large way, (they) act as a relationshipbuilding tool with the young patrons of the library,” Hehner said. “We’ve worked on improving the traffic flow in the parking lot. We’ve done the best we can with the space that we have.” Radio-frequency ID check-out systems and self-check kiosks throughout the library have eliminated long lines. Hehner said these features “have been very well received.” Hehner highlighted an immediate focus on “exploring new ways to serve patrons who are geographically distant from the actual, physical building.” To increase convenience for patrons on the city’s west side, a remote drop-box was installed at the CVS pharmacy at 131st Street and Towne Road. Patrons with extenuating physical cir-

New home starts reach record
By Robert Annis • email@example.com
Carmel continues its strong rebound from the housing crisis, with more than 50 new home starts this year, according to building permit records. The number is a significant jump from the same time in 2012, which is extremely good news for homebuilders. The 353 single-family new homes built last year was the most since the recession hit five years ago and was nearly double the number of homes built in 2009. “This is the eighth-straight month where we have seen an increase in permits in a year-overyear percent comparison,” Steve Lains, CEO, of the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis,
stated in a recent news release. Builders are optimistic the trend will continue this year, but worry about labor shortages and increases in building material costs. Commercial and mixed-use construction also is experiencing a building boom. Work on two new buildings in City Center will likely begin in May. The Mezz on 3rd and the Mezz on the Monon will house 44 apartments, 8,000 square feet of office space and 4,000 square feet of “amenity” space. Anderson Birkla will move its headquarters to the Mezz on 3rd building when construction is completed at some point in 2014. A phone call to Anderson Birkla’s David Anderson was not returned.

Police departments join forces By Janelle Morrison • firstname.lastname@example.org In response to the recent bank robberies that have occurred in Carmel, Zionsville and Avon, the towns’ police departments have joined forces in an attempt to apprehend the suspects that they believe are involved in all three robberies. Detectives from the respective law enforcement agencies recently met at a multi-jurisdictional meeting to discuss the robberies. Working along with the FBI, these agencies hope to catch the suspects before they strike again. On Feb. 11, Avon Police Dept. reported that around 10:23 a.m., two males armed with handguns went into the Indiana Member’s Credit Union, 10438 E U.S. 36, Avon, and demanded money. The Carmel Police Dept. then responded to an armed robbery on Feb. 25 around 10:45 a.m. at The Ameriana Bank, 3975 W. 106th St. Witnesses stated that two males entered the bank armed with handguns Burglary at business along Carmel Drive – Last week, Carmel Police responded to a business burglary at Omega Designs, 162 W. Carmel Dr., that occurred sometime between 5:30 p.m. on March 19 and 8 a.m. on March 20. Entry was made through a rear glass door of the business that was smashed in. A number of lap top computers were taken. At the time of publication, there were no suspects according to police.
and demanded cash. The suspects fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of money. The latest incident occurred on March 11 when the Zionsville Police Dept. was notified of an armed robbery at the Key Bank, 11622 N. Michigan Rd., at 11:05 a.m. involving two males who demanded money and then fled the bank on foot. The suspects involved in all three robberies remain at large, and Lt. Jeff Horner with CPD spoke about the on-going investigation and the partnering of the agencies involved. “Detectives from all three departments have been working together as there are similarities regarding the suspects in all three cases,” Horner said. “The FBI was also contacted, and we will continue to work with Zionsville and Avon during these investigations.” Anyone with information is asked to call the Carmel Police Dept. at 571-2500, the Zionsville Police Dept. at 873-5967, the Avon Police Dept. at 272-4485 or Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS (8477).

ESE gets national visit Commentary by Carmel Parks and Recreation Indianapolis will welcome the National AfterSchool Association annual convention to the Indianapolis Convention Center from April 7 to 10. The NAA is the primary voice of the after school profession and is “dedicated to the development, education and care of children and youth during their out-of-school hours.” The NAA annual convention contains the most all-inclusive series of professional development opportunities for after school professionals anywhere in the United States. As an added bonus, the 2013 convention will mark the 25th anniversary of the NAA annual convention. Convention attendees will celebrate 25 years of commitment, dedication and passion for making a positive impact in the lives of children and youth. Children can often spend as much time in before/after school and summer programs as they do in the classroom. As a result, providing youth with high-quality, out-of-school time programs is paramount to success in school, college, work and life. Time spent in these programs offers children opportunities for personal growth, character development, academic support, enrichment activities, socialization and active play.
Providing these opportunities to the Carmel community is precisely what Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s Extended School Enrichment program strives to achieve. One of the convention highlights is the opportunity for attendees to visit local programs during a site visit. This year, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s ESE program is proud to provide the NAA convention attendees the opportunity to visit two after school programs in Carmel. Forest Dale Elementary and Mohawk Trails Elementary will open their doors to give convention visitors the opportunity to observe a few of the high-quality youth programs happening in greater Indianapolis All elementary school sites are Submitted photo comprised of the same core components of ESE, with each school customized to serve the best interests of the students and parents/guardians. The program emphasizes communication and problem solving skills and encourages students to work as a cohesive team, and to think independently, creatively, and critically in applying academic and social skills. Both sites are elated to have convention attendees visit their respective locations and look forward to the opportunity to spotlight their programs.

Private high school founded on trust, respect and creativity By Christian Sorrell • email@example.com During the last decade and a half, University High School, a private college preparatory school on west 116th Street, has methodically evolved. Every day, hundreds of Carmel residents drive by the school’s striking Fairbanks Hall, but only a small number have ever seen inside the school’s growing campus.
Creating a unique experience
Walking through University, the halls are calm. Not a single locker has an actual lock. Bells do not signal students from one class to the next. According to Head of School Chuck Webster, this is all the result of a school culture focused on student trust and personal responsibility. University’s mission statement and its culture are centered on excellence, personal responsibility, creativity, stewardship, diversity and mutual respect, support and trust. It is this strong sense of school culture that Webster says is at the heart of Webster the experience that University is hoping to create. It is one of the primary reasons Trustee Bob Kaspar and his family became involved with the school. “(My daughter) was really focused on culture in a high school that really allowed you to be who you are. The culture at University High School is very strong,” Kaspar said. “My daughter felt it when she did her shadow day. She felt that it was the best fit Kasper for her. (It was) focused on academics and focused on the student experience.”
Beyond the guiding aspect of culture, University has embraced a number of structural changes throughout the school day and academic year. Every day opens with a morning meeting at which the school gathers to share the day’s events, curriculum or anything that stu16 | March 26, 2013
dents or teachers would like to address. This meeting is extended on Fridays so a guest from the community can speak, exposing students in four years at the school to 50 to 60 guest speakers. The school also has a three-week academic term between its fall and spring semesters. Known as January Term, it allows students to take one specially offered class and focus their studies on it. Every year, some courses offer travel opportunities inside and outside the country. Both Webster and Kaspar spoke extensively about January Term, touting its ability to revitalize the students before the beginning of the spring semester and give teachers an opportunity to teach outside their standard curriculum.
Becoming a part of the community
With University at 265 students and growing, the school is looking to develop its role in Carmel and the surrounding communities, hoping to avoid the “walled garden” atmosphere of many private schools. “One of the things we’ve always (thought) about is how to be a community resource, even more expansively than we’ve been so far,” Webster said. “We are working with St.Vincent’s Sports
A 15-year history In 1998, a group of local parents formed an exploratory committee, hoping to look into the perceived shortage of private high schools at the time. Over the following year, Chuck Webster, his wife Nancy and other faculty members were brought on, and University began the process of solidifying a curriculum. After buying 85 acres along 116th Street, University received a $1.5-million gift from a family foundation formed to support private schools. The gift allowed for the construction of temporary classrooms to begin on the property. University’s first academic year began in the fall of 2000 with 28 students and 10 faculty members. During the next decade, University would gain 30 more acres and build two permanent facilities, each more than 30,000 square feet. Current in Carmel

Medicine in our training and athletics, and we are talking about some ways to get healthy sports and healthy P.E. to the Carmel community outside of school and how to use the land best to be a steward in the community.” In the past, University has asked entrepreneurs from Carmel and around Central Indiana to be part of student workshops, has taken part in community activities such as an annual choir performance at the Carmel Fire Dept. every holiday season and awarded annual Trailblazer Awards to members of the community that University feels personify the school’s core values. “While I think being a great school is one of the ways we (better Carmel), I think there are other things to do,” Webster said. “Stewardship is a big idea here, and the notion that you take care of things that are greater than yourself is in the DNA.”
On the horizon
After 13 academic years, University still is a relatively young organization. The average age of a private Indiana high school is 54. During the next several years, University aims to grow to a maximum size of 320 students. Webster and others believe that this is the ideal number for the school, given the current space. “Being small is a great strength for us,” said Kaspar, explaining that a number of the school’s unique opportunities would not be as easy to create on a larger scale. After reaching its self-imposed admission cap, University will be looking more toward servicing its current student population and its community better, rather than simply building more classrooms. “Institutionally, we feel like they’re young adults and can see what ideas look like when a large number of kids and faculty are committed to them,” Webster said. “We are looking for the next set of innovations. A lot of those are tied to culture and relationships. The newer ones will be tied more to community and to the final academic program.” For more information on University, visit www.universityhighschool.org. www.currentincarmel.com
Lockdowns – the new normal
Mass transit: ‘No’ to a tax increase
It is our position that officials at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis did the right thing by putting the campus and surrounding areas on lockdown and high alert after reports of a person with a gun was seen on campus. For more than four hours, the entire University, surrounding hospitals, schools and businesses remained locked down while five police departments searched the area looking for a gunman.
Though against school policy, possession of a firearm on a college campus is not illegal in the state of Indiana – so why the panic? With the onslaught of gun violence and mass shootings, it’s obvious that most Americans don’t feel safe. Perhaps the question has changed from, “How could this happen to me?” to “When will it happen to me?” in the minds of many. And if in fact, lockdowns are the new normal, there needs to be a greater emphasis placed on education of the process along with semantics clarification such as “lockdown” vs. “high alert” in potentially dangerous situations to ensure the maximum safety of all. Yes, it is an inconvenience, however, it’s better to be safe and keep the hope that all this preparedness will provide piece of mind and ultimately, save lives.

Commentary by Terry Anker
Modern communication has come more and more to dictate continual availability. People carry their phones (and personal conversations) into some of the most improbable (and impolite) settings. On airplanes, in church and at the adjacent urinal, we have been unwilling witness to folks whose need for constant contact exceeds understanding. Unless they have the codes to our country’s nuclear arsenal and the North Koreans are attacking, what justifies the non-stop confab? When I first owned a cell-phone that wasn’t hard-wired to the floor of my car, I made the mistake of carrying the new gadget into a meeting with some much older colleagues. Certain that they’d be dazzled by my technological knowledge and surely justifiable superiority, I was disappointed by their disapproval. Rightly, they argued that attention to the person at hand is almost always more important than attending to a contact from another. Sure, we keep the phone handy when our kids
are out of the house and plan for those important and expected return calls. But, the world has yet to cease revolving because a message was answered an hour after it was received. A client, obsessive potential mate, or telemarketer who cannot wait until we finish our meeting is probably not worth the concern. Admittedly, I routinely lack the self-control to achieve my own goal as outlined above. The ringing phone, it seems like the crying baby, demands to be attended. For me, deactivating the ringer and hiding the device from view helps with lacking willpower. Interestingly even as I work to show respect for the one I’m with, the person calling often seems offended by the lack of immediate gratification. To whom do we owe our attention? And, do we have a right to demand that others be universally on call for us? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

While it’s true that residents of Hamilton and Boone counties could benefit by the passage of a bill calling for a referendum on mass-transit funding, this nonsense needs to be stopped in its tracks right here and now. The fact of the matter is, the Senate Tax and Fiscal Policy Committee has in front of it a bill calling for that very referendum in Hamilton and Marion counties, and here’s what it ultimately will mean if the referendum reaches the ballot and is passed: more taxes. Sadly, the bill already has passed the state House of Representatives. We’re with Gov. Mike Pence on this one. His plan has been, and continues to be, lower taxes for all of us – which is exactly as it should be. This effort clearly runs counter to his plan (and our hopes). We offer a hearty high-five to Sen. Luke Kenley (R-District 20), who dropped his co-sponsorship of the bill last week. We get that mass transit could become an economic-development engine, and that’s great … as long as it’s not on the taxpayers’ backs. Interesting, isn’t it, that when someone offers an idea that the first suggestion for funding it is “raise taxes”? Interesting, aggravating and unnecessary. No new taxes! Let’s see what can be done with what we have, and if we don’t have enough, well, we simply can’t afford it. This continual practice of reaching well beyond current financial means has to cease. Isn’t it more than enough now that the Feds are deeper into our wallets? When is enough actually going to be enough? We have a better way to improve transit, or the process by which one gets from here to there; it’s called repairing roads. Our money is sitting in the budgetsurplus drawer. Spend it to fix the sinkholes we avoid on a daily basis. Or, better yet, return it to taxpayers.

Seriously, consider the children! Commentary by Danielle Wilson I know it’s March Madness, but when did teaching kids to be bullies become acceptable in our world? I am so fed up with coaches who act like complete jerks I just want to scream. Instead, I shall vent my frustrations to you, my adoring public, some of whom are probably the aforementioned jerks. So be it. It’s time you were called out. My daughter plays basketball for an in-house church league. Only the most blatant shooting fouls are called, traveling is still OK, and even a basket for the other team is celebrated. Basically, everyone’s there to have fun and eat post-game cookie cake. But a recent game was different. For starters, the other team was a bit scary; they were tall and extremely aggressive, frazzling our girls from the get-go. But that’s good for them; playing physical is part of the game. Then two things happened in quick succession that turned this from an intense competition to a disgusting display of unsportsmanship and coaching. First, the other team called a switch mid-play that pit their best player against our worst even though coaches “assign” same-level players to each other to keep the game fair. The girl immediately stole the ball and scored an easy layup. Our coach called a time-out to discuss this with the other coach, who denied any accusations of rule-bending, claiming “she was just picking up the ball.” Whatever. If you need to cheat to win an 8-year-old level basket-
ball game, you have bigger issues. Minutes later, a different player on the opposing team, one who’d been warned repeatedly about holding and reaching in, quite literally threw one of our girls to the ground. When the teenage referee called the foul, madness ensued. From my end of the court, I couldn’t hear anything, but I did see this: Our player crying, the fouler screaming at the ref, our coach walking over to settle everyone, and then their coach coming off the bench to also yell at the referee. We were just one swing short of a complete melee. When the dust cleared, no one apologized to our player, the other team’s parents didn’t clap when she hobbled off the court, and after they won, their coaches didn’t shake hands with our players or coaches. This is Third. Grade. Girls. It’s not the NCAA tourney, for God’s sake. And even if it were, sportsmanship still should prevail. All this coach did was to encourage an atmosphere of disrespect and bullying. You should be ashamed of yourself, sir, as should your team parents who allow this behavior to continue. March Madness should be a celebration of basketball, not a total disregard for the sport. Peace out.

A dentist with a remote? Commentary by Dick Wolfsie I’m not the kind of guy who sits in front of the TV all night and fiddles the remote control, jumping from station to station, failing to watch any particular show for more than a few minutes. No, I am not just another one of those guys. I am THE guy. So you can imagine how excited I was when I went to get my teeth cleaned the other day and my hygienist slapped a shiny black gadget in my hand, pointed to the TV, and stuck a probe into my gums. This was too good to be true. I flipped on the power switch, eager to see how many channels my dentist had subscribed to, wondering whether he had opted for satellite, cable or dish. The man was a marketing genius. You can’t learn this stuff in dental school. The TV came on. I pressed menu and gazed at my choices. It must have been a new service; I was unfamiliar with the programming: • ROOT CANAL • BRIDGES • IMPLANTS • TEETH WHITENING • TONGUE PIERCING Oh joy! Channels I had never surfed, horizons I had never conquered, buttons I had never pushed. This was potentially more exciting than the Fish Bowl Channel or the Backgammon Channel. It almost, almost, made the Golf Channel look boring.
But there was more. Each channel had a submenu: TEETH WHITENING 1. Symptoms 2. Diagnosis 3. Treatment 4. Prognosis 5. Payment Movies within movies, stories within stories, a concept made popular by Shakespeare and reintroduced by Dr. Coleman of Noblesville. I clicked on ‘Treatment.’ Frightening closeups of bad teeth filled the screen; visual effects crawled over the monitor, turning a horrid set of pearly grays into a string of chicklets so breathtaking I was eager to see who the cinematographer was. I dared not weep, for fear my tears would suggest over-sensitivity of the teeth rather than of the heart. As I started to get up from the chair, Dr. Coleman bounded into the room. “Dick, I just looked at your X-rays. You have a cavity in your right back molar. I’ll need to fill it.” And so he did. Dr. Coleman is a wonderful dentist. He did a great job filling my cavity. I can’t wait for the movie.

The lure of a diabolical impulse Commentary by Mike Redmond
Occasionally I am seized by what I like to call “diabolical impulses.” These are not like your regular, garden-variety impulses, the ones that make you buy the candy bar from that display next to the cash register, or purchase that tractor I mentioned a couple of weeks back. A diabolical impulse can (A.) get you into trouble, (B.) forever alter your life, (C.) cost you a lot of money, and (D.) all of the above. And the answer is almost always (D.) Which of course, leads to (E.) you’re going to have a tough time explaining it to normal people. These sorts of impulses can only be planted by dark forces, which is why I call them diabolical. And as you have probably guessed, I am in the grips of one even as we speak and it involves a pedal steel guitar. A pedal steel guitar is the swooping, crying, ear-catching sound you hear in country music. I used to play it some. In fact, I got deeply into it, which was the problem. The pedal steel – a contraption that requires both hands, both feet, both knees and both hemispheres of your brain to play – is not an instrument that willingly gives up its secrets. It plays mind games. It used to wake me up in the middle of the www.currentincarmel.com
night. “Pssst,” it would hiss from my music room downstairs, “Come on down, Mike. I’ve got something I want to show you. You’ll love it.” And I would pad downstairs at 2 a.m. to play one lick. One. And play it I would, until I was two hours late for work. Eventually, I got too busy to devote that much time to the steel, so I swapped it for a jazz archtop guitar, and I thought that was that. Ha. Guess who’s been calling me in the middle of the night for the last two weeks? Guess who convinced me to sell a banjo so I’d have some ready cash? And then guess who got to my friend Frank, who was talking about putting together a country band just for fun and mentioned that the steel position might be open. If that’s not the devil at work I don’t know what is. Get thee behind me, Satan. Quit playing pedal steel licks in my head. Quit picking on me for not picking on a steel. For heaven’s sake, I’m still explaining the tractor.

The event is organized and sponsored by the Hamilton County 4-H Junior Leaders. It is one of two events the organization hosts for the community at no charge. The other is the haunted house and Halloween celebration in the fall. (Photos by Robert Herrington)

NIGHT & DAY Recipe for life
What is your recipe for life? Commentary by Claudia Pearson A good recipe, like life, has many different “ingredients” which all come together to create one wonderful combination unique in itself. Just as two lives are never exactly the same, two recipes are not the same. We tweak recipes like we tweak our own lives, we make them our own. Yet, they do share a few things in common and with that, life and the preparation and sharing of food become one. • First, the binders – eggs, flour, faith, family, friendships • Add in some spice – cinnamon, cayenne pepper, romance, humor, challenges • And the sweeteners – honey, brown sugar, love, kindness, compassion Food returns us to our roots and is a common binding ingredient in our own recipes for life. Memories we have from childhood that when reminded of them by a familiar aroma or taste, can take us back in an instant to that moment (my Mom’s macaroni and cheese). You know what I mean, those memories are there and we need to tend them for the next generations, so they will also have the joy of being reminded of a happier, simpler time. This past Christmas, my three children were home from college and for my gift, they cooked dinner. Hearing the laughter that was coming from the kitchen was gift enough. However, in addition
Introducing Claudia Pearson, Recipe for Life – In my own life, the preparation of food and sharing of meals has always been a foundation upon which many memories have been made. In my column, I hope to inspire and encourage others to create time for this age old tradition and discover that this one ingredient is an important one in their own “recipe for life” - Claudia Pearson to that, the simple joy of anticipation as I sat in the next room waiting to taste the food belonging to the aromas was heaven. I don’t have that opportunity much as I am always the one cooking, and it is just not the same. Kind of like a tickle that doesn’t feel as good when you do it to yourself. Life and food, an inseparable combination that is a part of us. What is your recipe for life? Include in it the making and sharing of meals and food with those you love. It will forever be a part of their recipes to be passed down, sometimes a bit yellowed and dog eared, but loved and cherished all the same.

costs and increasing energy performance. “It’s a state-of-the-art facility that differs from other hospitals in one important way, it is built based on the community’s feedback. Over the past several years, we surveyed hundreds of area residents, and their answers form the foundation of the new hospital,” said Gary Fammartino, administrator of St.Vincent Fishers. Highlights of the new facility include: • Increased energy savings – The expansion achieves a 14-percent improvement in energy savings compared to industry standards. • Decreased noise levels – Patient and staff exposure to disruptive noise levels is reduced through the use of acoustically designed exterior glass panels. • Improved stormwater quality – Stormwater quality treatment units remove 80 percent of the total suspended solids from runoff. • Reduced energy use – Transom windows provide an abundance of natural light that compliments occupancy sensors for efficient lighting control.
St.Vincent Fishers Hospital, a 110,000-square-foot inpatient expansion to St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast, is finished and will be open to patients on April 8. The 50-bed inpatient expansion was designed by BSA LifeStructures with a focus on improving the patient care experience. The expansion includes 30 med-surg rooms, 10 observation beds and 10 labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum rooms. The design incorporates elements designed to reduce stress, expedite the healing process, reduce patient’s length of stay and improve staff morale and productivity. “St.Vincent Health and BSA LifeStructures emphasized the creation of a facility that compliments the holistic patient care approach of St.Vincent,” said Carl Johnson, BSA LifeStructures lead architect on the project. “St.Vincent Fishers Hospital strikes a balance between healing, comfort, functionality and symbolism. The individual spaces are warm and inviting, yet taken as a whole, the design of the facility provides a reassuring sense of quality and efficiency.” St.Vincent Fishers Hospital is on target to be the first hospital in Indiana to achieve the new LEED for Healthcare certification. This new rating system recognizes sustainable measures that encourage environmental stewardship in healthcare design while reducing operational

Varicose veins cause other aches Commentary by Joe Krug It’s the end of the work day; your legs are heavy, achy, and tingling. You have noticed that as the years have progressed, these symptoms have gotten worse. In addition, there are now varicose- and spider-veins that inhabit your legs and prevent you from wearing your favorite pair of shorts on a consistent basis. Varicose-veins affect 30 to 40 percent of the population and are affected by a number of hereditary and environmental factors. While most people consider varicosities to be simply a cosmetic issue, they have the potential to develop into a serious medical issue. Delayed treatment of varicosities can lead to inflammation, clots, sores or ulcers and can cause bleeding. As we move, deoxygenated blood is returned to the heart. At any given moment, about 70 percent of your total blood volume is found in your legs. Because the return of this blood is against gravity, one-way valves are present in your veins to work with your musculature to flow toward the heart. When the valves fail, blood in these vessels will reflux, or flow backward, causing engorgement of the vessels leading to varicose- and spider-veins.
Though unable to ‘cure’ the valves, there are methods available to help relieve the discomfort of varicosities. Initially, exercise, weight loss, avoiding prolonged periods of standing, and compression stockings may be able to help relieve the discomfort from this condition. When conservative management fails, several treatment options are available depending on your severity of discomfort and cosmetic appearance. Sclerotherapy is a local chemical injection for small or spider-veins. MicroPhlebectomy is a local excision of small to medium varicose-veins. Endovenous laser ablation is minimally invasive procedure whereby a laser is inserted into the troublesome vein and used to cause it to seal off. Vein stripping is a surgical procedure used to cut away (or strip) the offending veins. Given the advances in both conservative and invasive therapy, there are numerous methods available to help alleviate all your symptoms from varicose- and spider-veins. Please consult your physician for further details and treatment options.

Keeping teen coverage affordable Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Michael M. from West Clay: My son will be getting his license this spring. How do I add him to my policy, and what can I do to make sure I don’t have to get a second job to afford it? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Adding a teen to your insurance policy is not the thing to do if you’re looking to keep your insurance costs down. But there are a couple of things you can do to make sure you are getting the best price. First, make sure your teen keeps his grades up. A good majority of carriers offer discounts for teens that maintain a “B” average or higher. Next, make sure your teen completes a driver’s ed class. Lastly, make sure you pay attention to our claim prevention ideas and follow all the current laws and regulations. Adding a new driver to your policy is as easy as giving your independent agent a phone call or an email. We will need the new driver’s license number, name and the vehicle that they will be driving. If you’re adding a new vehicle, we will also need the vehicle identification number for the new auto. The type of vehicle your teen drives is a major driver of the cost of coverage. The car you want them to drive (a four-door sedan) is going to cost a lot less to insure than the car they want to drive (a coupe, convertible or sports car).
Modifying your coverage limits is a subject you should run by your independent agent. I will say that the state minimum limits are inadequate and should only be used if financially necessary. The leading cause of death for U.S. teens is motor vehicle crashes. Teens are at risk because they are more likely to drive aggressively, to not wear seatbelts and to underestimate the dangers associated with hazardous driving situations. When we talk about claim prevention, we’re talking about minimizing the risk of those three things. The most straight-forward approach to prevention is to just put it all down on paper and create a Teen-Parent Driving Contract. The contract will spell out your expectations on anything you feel like addressing along with the punishment for breaking the contract. We recommend addressing some or all of these issues: • Make sure every person in the vehicle is wearing a seatbelt. • Never use a cell phone while driving. • Limit the number of passengers in the vehicle. • Make sure you are familiar with our current Graduated Drivers License laws (current laws & regs can be viewed at www.iihs.org)

LIFESTYLE Grammer Guy
That, who or whom? Commentary by Jordan Fischer This week we’ll be talking about pronoun confusion; specifically between “that,” “who” and “whom.” Here’s a sample sentence to start us off: “The pirate that sunk my ship sailed off with my booty.” See the problem? While “that,” “who” and “whom” are all pronouns, they are used in very different situations. “That” should be used as a replacement for nouns which are things: buildings, food, machinery, animals, furniture, etc. “Who” and “whom” are pronouns which refer to people. Let’s fix the sentence above. Since we know that pirates are not things, but people – albeit not nice people – we’ll be using either “who” or “whom.” To decide which of those pronouns we need, we must figure out whether our pirate is the subject or the object of the sentence. “Who” is a subject pronoun, meaning it replaces a noun which is performing the action in a sentence. “Whom” is an object pronoun, meaning it is acted upon in a sentence. Before you let all that trip you up, just remember this simple question:
“Who is doing what to whom?” Pirates, being categorically dynamic individuals, are usually the ones doing something. This is the case with our pirate as well. So, to fix the incorrect “that” in the sentence above, we’ll replace it with “who:” “The pirate who sunk my ship sailed off with my booty.” If you decide to take action, though, and go after the pirate, we’ll see that an object pronoun comes into play: “There’s the pirate whom I’m looking for!” We can make the sentence a little stilted to show the need for an object pronoun more obviously: “There’s the pirate for whom I am looking!” Once you remember that “that” isn’t a replacement for people, and “who” always does something to “whom,” you should have no trouble with this pronoun issue. Be sure to keep an eye out for pirates, though (and don’t let anyone touch your booty).
Once you remember that “that” isn’t a replacement for people, and “who” always does something to “whom,” you should have no trouble with this pronoun issue.

Sainte Chapelle is worth noticing Now offering Commentary by Don Knebel
After visitors to Paris have seen the Eiffel Tower, they usually head to Île de la Cité, an island in the Seine, to see Notre Dame, one of the largest and most famous churches in the world. They usually don’t even notice nearby Sainte Chapelle, a “Holy Chapel” that many consider a more beautiful example of medieval church architecture. The two-story Sainte Chapelle was constructed between 1239 and 1248 by French King Louis IX adjacent his palace on Île de la Cité. The ground floor chapel, built for the palace staff, is impressive in its own right. But it is the chapel on the second floor, originally accessible directly from the palace, which is the masterpiece. This chapel for the king and his court, now reached by a steep stairway from the first floor, includes sidewalls more than 50-feet high consisting largely of thousands of tiny pieces of stained glass illuminating stories from the Bible. Especially on sunny days, the vaulted ceiling seems to float ethereally above the walls. King Louis ordered the building of Sainte Chapelle as an elaborate reliquary for his most prized possession – a crown of thorns claimed to be the one placed on Jesus’ head before he was crucified 1200 years before. Louis acquired this relic in 1238 from its cash-strapped owner, Emperor Baldwin II of Constantinople, who had pawned it to the Venetians to secure a debt

of 13,134 gold pieces. For his lifelong support of the church, including acquiring the crown of thorns, building Sainte Chapelle and serving in the Seventh and Eighth Crusades, which led to his death in 1270, Louis was declared a saint in 1297, the only French king so honored. If you get a chance to visit Paris, after exploring Notre Dame stop by St. Louis’ magnificent chapel just a few blocks away. Since his palace in the Seine is now the French Palace of Justice, entering Sainte Chapelle requires first going through government security. But seeing such an inspiring achievement of human creativity is well worth the minimal effort and you will be glad you stopped.

Retrofitting still works Commentary by Randy Sorrell Retrofitting continues to be a fashionable trend and when employed successfully, elevates the appearance of surrounding elements that may have previously been a little stale, such as a boring concrete pool surround that suddenly becomes stylish or a graying deck the moves to the center of entertaining. This Carmel project is a perfect example of that strategy. It also served to expand a cramped outdoor patio and pool lounge area. COMMUNICATE Before our intervention, the deck was enclosed with wood spindles and railing and did not “communicate” well with the pool. By installing new premium pressure treated pine (emphasize premium) over the preserved joist system, eliminating the spindles and rail system and opening up the back with 8-foot wide, large tread steps, it suddenly behaves as the elegant living space that was likely originally hoped for. ARTISTIC Notice that the deck elevation is coincidentally seat height to the tumbled brick patio we installed to expand the pool lounge area. The natural boulder fire feature artistically nestles in the middle of the new patio space with a corresponding boulder planted on the edge as a seat boulder for ambitious kids to hang out. Adults love the seat boulder look, but find the surface a little uncomfortable after a few minutes of sitting. The mature blue spruce offers a striking color contrast, helps with privacy and is a great sound barrier too. Living spaces, trends, colors and materials evolve. Products are redesigned, improved and
introduced annually. Our lives and objectives change too, sometimes to the detriment of our once fashionable patio and deck. No wonder retrofitting is such a smart and fashionable trend.

INSIDE & OUT Indoors
Creating a home gym is easy Commentary by David Decker Finding the motivation to exercise is definitely easier if your workout equipment is only steps away. That’s the allure of the home gym, a specialized room in the house dedicated to helping you stay in shape. Many homeowners are converting unused space into customized gyms, which is not as difficult as you might think. The first step in creating a home gym is ensuring that you have enough space for one. Make sure you measure the entire space and any exercise machines you are thinking about buying. A crowded gym space is difficult (and somewhat unsafe) to use. And don’t forget to measure the height of the room as well. Pay special attention to your ceiling height – low ceilings could interfere with your gym equipment or while performing other activities like jumping rope. Next, check the ventilation. A poorly ventilated home gym will get hot and muggy, which can make exercise uncomfortable. The flooring you select for your gym is also very important. We agree with the fitness experts and recommend rubber flooring because it provides stability, support and reduces the chance of injuries. Just make sure whatever type of flooring you choose allows you to exercise comfortably. If your home gym features heavy exercise machines, be sure to place mats or some kind of support underneath them to keep the floor from getting damaged.
With all the logistics out of the way, we can discuss the fun, creative aspects of planning a home gym. Mount a television or a sound system on the wall to make workouts more fun. Install bright lighting to help you get motivated during workouts. If you don’t have much natural light to work with, you may want to install halogen, LED or sconce lighting. You can hang mirrors on the walls to both brighten the space and help you exercise at the same time. Gyms are inherently full of equipment, so you probably want to designate a place for everything to be stored. Install storage to organize free-weights, yoga mats and other workout equipment. I think tall cabinets that resemble lockers could add a sporty, yet functional touch to the room. Cabinetry with countertops may be beneficial if you want to install a sink or have space for electronic equipment. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring. They are based in Carmel (575-9540, www.theaffordablecompanies.com). E-mail home improvement questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
