Program helps ease autism fears By Nina Johnson • news@currentincarmel.com Little Star Center training director Tim Courtney appreciates the special health needs of children affected by autism. In 2012, Little Star Center of Carmel celebrated its 10th year of providing a sensory-sensitive environment for children with autism. At Little Star, children receive individualized guidance using applied behavior analysis. This method uses positive reinforcement, repetition and prompting to encourage positive development of life skills. The U.S. Surgeon General’s office has endorsed this method as the most efCourtney fective treatment for autism. “The level of intensity and supervision by competent professionals is certainly one of the primary variables related to (this method’s) effectiveness,” Courtney said. Little Star’s atmosphere fosters support and family training. Students are called Little Star Learners to highlight their active participation. Outings to new environments familiarize students with a location, the staff and tools of the trade. An outing to a dentist’s office, for example, can ease student concerns about dental appointments. A National Institute of Health report estimates 10 to 14 percent of the U.S. population endures some degree of dental phobia. For some with autism, the lights, sounds and smells associated with a dental visit can pose a further challenge to maintaining oral healthcare. A Little Star family working with Dr. Kevin Beadle at Carmel Pediatric Dentistry understood those phobias well. Their child’s anxiety about dental procedures posed extreme difficulties during exams. “This was very interesting, because by and large, this particular child was typically very calm,” Courtney said. Fortunately, Beadle’s residency at ChilBeadle dren’s Hospital of Michigan included training for the needs of children with autism. “When Tim from Little Star approached me with the idea for the desensitization program, I was enthusiastic to participate,” Beadle said. Adapting a procedure developed in the 1950s, Beadle and the Little Star staff designed a desensitization program geared toward easing dental fears. “We successfully desensitized three different children so they could receive dental services from Dr. Beadle,” Courtney said. First, Beadle visited Little Star Center to teach proper brushing habits. Stories and stuffed animals added some fun, while students handled real toothbrushes and the dentist’s surgical mask. Public relations manager Lisa Adams led the Little Star group

on an after-hours tour of Carmel Pediatric Dentistry. Students explored the Alice in Wonderland-themed waiting room before their name was called for their practice appointment. Children tried out dental chairs and viewed equipment in muted plum and lime green exam areas. “We let the children come when the office is closed,” Adams said. “We let them get used to going through the steps.” “The program is open to all children who have anxiety and could benefit from desensitization,” Beadle said. Insurance providers often cover such programs as clinical consultations. “We have encouraged other dentists to initiate similar programs.” Little Star has taken it a step further and tailored this method for other needs. “We use desensitization intervention to address phobias related to hand dryers, haircuts, artwork, mannequins and statues,” Courtney said. Little Star offers individualized guidance for social settings such as grocery stores or restaurants as well. “This is a very important service to families of individuals with autism,” Courtney said. “We are very proud of the successes we’ve had in helping children with autism overcome various anxieties.” Little Star Center earned the Autism Society of Indiana’s Excellence in Direct Care award in 2011. The center’s executive director, Mary Rosswurm, has been appointed to a fourth term on the Indiana Commission on Autism.

Carmel Clay School Board – March 25 What happened: School lunch prices increase for 2013-2014 What it means: Elementary lunches will increase from $2.25 to $2.30 while middle and high school lunches will increase from $2.35 to $2.50. Increases were approved to align with 2011 state legislation for the subsidized school lunch program. Assistant Supt. Roger McMichael said lunches provide “increased whole grains, veggie and fruit servings” which cost more. McMichael assured board member Gregory Phillips “there have been no changes to the program for free and reduced lunches.” What happened: Policy clarified on student promotion, placement, retention What it means: In general, “the Board discourages the skipping of grades.” The amended policy, however, allows for consideration when a student was previously retained twice before fourth-grade. As well, a case conference committee for students with disabilities can request promotion. The policy now includes an additional description for grade level success stating a student must demonstrate “sufficient proficiency.” What happened: Financial update, operational funds better than Indiana average What it means: McMichael reported the local tax rate’s vital role in “covering about 14 percent … almost $14 million” of operating costs. He pointed out the Carmel school system still has one of the lowest tax rates in the state. “Our community’s certainly done its share of support,” McMichael said. “We will have challenges in the future,” McMichael said. Seventy-five percent of Carmel teachers are not yet earning at the top of the salary schedule. Projections show a need for $2.5-million more in the operating balance should salaries increase just 1 percent, half the inflation rate. State fund reductions are negatively impacting schools across the state. What happened: Supt. Swensson recommended redistricting of Orchard Park neighborhoods What it means: Supt. Dr. Jeff Swensson reported the growth of three neighborhoods currently served by Orchard Park could strain student capacity. He noted neighborhoods off Main Street near Meridian and off 116th Street near College Avenue. “We need to redistrict these neighborhoods for the next school year so these areas would be served by Woodbrook,” Swensson said. Board members Hackett and Phillips expressed concerns about Woodbrook’s distance from these areas and capacity.

The New Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines Are Here!

Carmel police arrested three suspects around 4 a.m. last Thursday after responding to a report of a stolen vehicle along Spruce Drive. The victim told police his 2010 Ford F150, parked in his driveway, had just been stolen. Officers located the reported stolen truck in the area of Main Street and Keystone Avenue. A 2002 Honda CRV was traveling with the alleged stolen vehicle. Officers stopped the truck and took two suspects into custody without incident. The Honda CRV was located a short time later near McDonald’s at Keystone Avenue and Carmel Drive. Officers began searching the

surrounding area and located a third suspect hiding behind a dumpster. The Honda had been reported stolen out of Indianapolis earlier. The first suspect, a 17-year-old black male, was arrested for motor vehicle theft, theft and possession of a handgun without a license. He was taken to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center. William Devante Boone, an 18-year-old black male, was for arrested motor vehicle theft and theft. James Lamonn Moore, a 19-year-old black male, was arrested for motor vehicle theft and theft. Boone and Moore were transported to the Hamilton County Jail after their arrests. All three suspects were from Indianapolis.

The much anticipated revisions to the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines (IPTG) took effect on March 1, 2013. These are the guidelines in which judges base their custody and parenting time decisions. Below are some answers to FAQ: How will the new guidelines affect my current parenting time schedule? If you currently have a court order to follow the IPTG, then the new guidelines will have no affect on your parenting time. The new IPTG will only apply to new orders of parenting time or those taking effect on or after March 1, 2013. However, if your current order with respect to parenting time or custody is modified by the Court in the future; the new IPTG will likely be implemented at that time. Can I move to modify my current order to implement the new IPTG? No, you cannot file a motion with the court for the sole purpose of implementing the new IPTG. However, parents are not prevented from agreeing to follow the revised IPTG. If both parents agree that they wish to follow the new IPTG, they must put their agreement in writing and file with the court for approval. Otherwise, the agreement will not be enforceable. How do the new IPTG differ from the current IPTG? There have been no changes to the weekly schedule of parenting time. The main changes are with respect to the holiday and special day schedules. Under the current IPTG there are no provisions for dividing Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend, President’s Day weekend or fall break. The new IPTG have added these as holidays to be alternated between the parents. Under the new IPTG, Christmas break and New Year’s holiday have been consolidated into one holiday and divided equally. Under the current IPTG they are two separate holidays. The revised IPTG give additional guidance regarding division of breaks for children attending schools with year round or balanced calendars. The current IPTG divide all breaks equally between the parties but neglect to assign which parent receives which half. The revised IPTG alternate the first half and second half of the breaks from year to year. The revised IPTG no longer include the provision preventing either party from exercising three weekends in a row due to holiday parenting time. The revised IPTG allow the parties to maintain alternating weekends throughout the year. Holidays still take precedence over regular weekend parenting time. Additionally, there have been some clarifications with respect to the opportunity for additional parenting time (Right of First Refusal). This provision states that when a parent requires childcare by someone other than a family member, that they must offer this time to the other parent first. The revised IPTG provide further guidance regarding the definition of “family member” with the term “responsible household” family member being added to the guidelines. The commentary defines household family member as “an adult person residing in the household, who is related to the child by blood, marriage or adoption.” The above highlights some but not all of the revisions to the IPTG. If you have questions about the new guidelines, divorce, custody or other family law matter, contact Harden Jackson Law at www.hardenjacksonlaw.com or at 317.569.0770.

COMMUNITY Philanthropy

Community garden a reality Commentary by Jeff Worrell Hurry, there is not much time. Only a few plots left and they are going fast. That is the reality around a very popular project called the Plots to Plates Organic Garden, the logo and name coming from the effort of the naming contest award winner, Emily Sizemore. She is a second-grader at Woodbrook Elementary and she edged out 300 creative contestants to earn the right for her logo to appear on a sign at the entrance of our very own community garden. Final graphic design was provided by Melinda Hamilton. This will be the first year all 99 plots are ready for claiming for just $10 a year by anyone living in Carmel or an employee of the Carmel Clay School Corp. The land, water access and other amenities were graciously donated by the Carmel Schools when an old building was recently razed. A seven-person committee has been working on the project for the last year-and-ahalf. There is no official Chair (that is how they work together so nicely) because as MaryEllen St. Angelo so nicely put it, “We don’t need a President because everyone has unique skills and it has been a labor of love. We all are working

together to bring this gift to the community.” MaryEllen is joined by other Core Committee Members, Chris Cruzan, Margot Gibson, Linda Hynes, B.J. Massa, Sandie McLaren and Marcia Roberts. If you know any of these people, you should stop what you are doing and send them a note of gratitude. Not only will there be 99 plots, each 4-feet-by15-feet, there also will be a community gathering space open to anyone regardless of a green thumb or not. Carmel High School junior Ema Beeler decided to make her Girl Scout Gold Award all about producing a stage and patio area for the space. She has completed plans and is now in the process of raising the $6,000 needed to finish. To make any kind of donation, go to www. CCSgreenteam.org and click on the garden tab. A community garden was just a dream some 18 months ago. Now it is as real as the beans and squash which will soon sprout from the ground. Thanks for the dreamers among us.

Removing the ‘r-word’ By Maddie Scott • news@currentincarmel.com On March 22, Guerin Catholic High School hosted a Respect Rally to help raise awareness for those with special needs and to build awareness for society to stop and think about its use of the “r-word” – retarded. Some of the speakers at the assembly included Best Buddies participants and Special Olympic athletes: Amanda Armstrong, Mary McClamroch, Matt Yacone, Michael Peterson and Andrew Peterson. Each speaker spoke of the strength and courage Best Buddies and the Special Olympics has given them. Participants also spoke of the respect they have been lacking Andrew Peterson throughout their lives. “We don’t ever want pity, rather we need your respect,” said Andrew Peterson, a Special Olympic Indiana athlete. “There is more to winning. We get the chance to improve, feel good about ourselves, show everyone that each person is not a nobody but a somebody.” Michael Peterson, Andrew’s younger brother, and also a Special Olympics Indiana athlete and vocalist, sang a song from the hit television show Glee, “Get it Right.” The students gave him a standing ovation. Each speaker talked of their hope to one day eliminate the word retarded from the English vocabulary. The best buddies spoke about their struggles with earning the respect of others.

Superintendent finalists named news@currentincarmel.com

The three finalists for the position of Carmel Clay Schools superintendent were announced last week. School board member Patricia Hackett announced at a school board meeting that Dr. Eric Ban of College Acceleration Network, Dr. Bruce Hibbard of New Albany Floyd County Schools and Dr. Mary Ann Dewan of the Central Indiana Educational Services Center are all being considered to fill the vacancy being left by current Supt. Dr. Jeff Swensson who announced at a school board meeting late last year that he would be stepping down from his position at the end of June. Each candidate took part in a day-long, second-round interview last week, including a www.currentincarmel.com

public forum. Each public forum consisted of a short reception, opening remarks from the candidate and a public question-and-answer session. Public questions and feedback from the forums are being taken into consideration during the decision-making process, according to Hackett. A single finalist will be announced in the next two weeks, according to a CCS schedule. Officials will then decide if a site visit to the finalist’s current school is necessary prior to contract negotiations. The contract and its specifics will receive a public forum later this month and will be published in its entirety before being finalized. Swensson has not yet announced any plans for his future employment or possible retirement.

COMMUNITY Development

Midwest Academy building a new school By Colleen Peregrin • news@currentincarmel.com The Midwest Academy, a Carmel-based private school, hosted a hardhat tour of its future facility last week. The new location on Chase Court will house two science labs, an art room with wet and dry areas, a full-capacity teaching kitchen and a fitness area. “Going to school in an office building, and telling your friends that, really gets their attention,” student Winston Snyder said about the Midwest Academy’s current location on 801 Congressional Blvd. Kim VanWassenhove, a mother of a student, believes the current facility is restrictive. “(The school is) at the point now that if they do anything extra, they have to get on the bus and go somewhere else,” she said. “The current space limits what the school can do.” With or without the extra space, the Midwest Academy makes quite a difference. “We have been delighted in the change in our daughter, and not just academically but in her confidence in herself.” VanWassenhove said. “We actually live in Lawrence, and we drive all this way, and it’s definitely worth it.” Alumni Sean Millard credits the school as the reason he received his high school diploma. The students often even think of the school as a second home. With small classes that never exceed 14, the students are introduced to an environ-

ment that is created to help those who learn a little differently thrive. The new location is not a cheap, however. “Right now, the total building construction is about $2.8 million,” said Myra Cocca, chairman of the school’s board. “We want to make this a community effort.” Cocca also said that many people have been affected by children or people with a learning disability and that alone makes people appreciate the Midwest Academy’s purpose. “They can be a part of this whether (they donate) $20 or $200,000 because it’s really interesting to us how many people never had something

like this school and say they wish they had. Those are the adults we want to appeal to, whether they have a child here or not, who could look at a school like Midwest Academy and say ‘I see a value in this,’” Cocca said. “And with the state pushing education, it has to be education for all and this is a critical part of our population.” The school received a donation of $500,000 as an outright gift as well as an incentive match of an additional $500,000. It has about $300,000 left in that match, so for people who give now, each dollar is doubled. For more information, visit www.mymidwestacademy.org.

Joann Hofer’s growing business brings European chocolate to Carmel By Christian Sorrell • christian @youarecurrent.com Carmel resident and self-described “citizen of the world” Joann Hofer is the owner, operator and chocolatier of the Carmel-based chocolate company XChocol’Art. Based out of a commercial-certified kitchen in her home, Hofer has grown her business during the last two years, becoming a thriving online chocolate seller as well as a big presence at local special events. Hofer started XChocol’Art two years ago, after finding herself with a growing passion for chocolate and pushing herself into years of condensed education in chocolate making. “I read an article two years ago about cocoa, and I became fascinated with the origin of cocoa, the process that it takes for one bean to make it into a chocolate piece that a person can actually eat,” Hofer said. “I enrolled in a bean to bar and professional chocolatier program and went to Vienna, Austria, to make good, quality chocolate the European way.” From this fascination with cocoa and the artistic side of chocolate making, Hofer not only took part in an accelerated chocolatier program but also learned the ins and outs of starting her own business. “The learning curve has been unbelievable in the last two years. In learning the processes to open a business, all of the little pieces seemed to fit together. Even things like realizing we needed a website if we were going to do this and someone saying it will be $15,000 to make one. I was like ‘Are you crazy?’ so I went and did it myself,” Hofer said. “At times, it was a lot to take on, but it has been fantastic. It has been a great learning process for me.” As part of her education, Hofer traveled to Austria, the country she lived in before her time in Carmel. It was living there that she

feels awakened her love for quality food. “It was great seeing how open the Austrian’s are with their culinary craft. They don’t hide. They don’t have secrets,” Hofer said. During this time in Austria, Hofer’s husband, an Austrian himself, and their two sons joined her, and the family traveled to Zotter Schokoladen Manufaktur in Kornberg, one of the country’s most unique and innovative chocolate companies. Josef Zotter, the company’s founder, is considered a visionary throughout much of Europe. With a focus on sustainability and fair trade products, Zotter not only makes high-quality, traditional chocolates but also looks to be innovative with his flavors. Last year, he even helped to create a pig’s blood-infused chocolate. After touring Zotter’s facility, Hofer’s husband suggested the couple meet with Zotter. Hofer initially blew off the idea, thinking Zotter would be far too busy to meet with a family of tourists, but after her husband reached out to the factory directly, telling of their family’s history in Austria and Hofer’s desire to make great chocolate, Zotter agreed to meet them for coffee. As the group discussed family, chocolate and business, questions Current in Carmel

about Zotter’s distribution, or lack thereof, in the United States was discussed. By the end of the day, Hofer and her husband had become Zotter’s U.S. distributor. It was a massive moment for XChocol’Art. “(Now), we are marrying the two companies. We are only making our chocolates from Zotter chocolate which means all of our products are organic and fair trade as well, something that is not common with small chocolate makers in the United States,” Hofer said. With this solid foundation, Hofer has been growing the local and creative aspects of the business during the past several months. XChocol’Art recently became a member of Indiana Artisan. The organization was launched in 2008 to raise awareness of locally-crafted products and to establish a brand for Indianamade goods. Hofer applied to the group and submitted samples of her work that were judged by a panel of fellow artisans before being invited to join the group. “It’s a wonderful group to be a part of. I’m from different parts of the world. I moved to Carmel 13 years ago, and I consider myself a Hoosier,” Hofer said. “Being a part of this group gives me that sense of belonging to this state and what is the best of this state, innovators and artists who want to express themselves through their craft.” Indiana Artisan will have its third annual Marketplace at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on April 6 and 7. For more information about the group, visit www.indianaartisan.org. In the coming months, XChocal’Art will be participating in Orchard in Bloom, a springtime event at Indianapolis’s Holiday Park from May 3 to 5. Hofer will also be manning a booth at this year’s Carmel Farmer’s Market Saturdays from May 18 to October 5. For more information on XChocol’Art and Hofer, visit www. xchocolart.com.

VIEWS Opinion

It’s a real plum for the Palladium Follow the North Star It is our position that Conner Prairie Interactive History Park’s Follow The North Star is a powerful learning experience in diversity that should not be missed, especially for history enthusiasts. This nationally-acclaimed, award-winning special program transcends books and movies by transforming participants into the role of a fugitive slave on the Underground Railroad, fleeing from captivity and risking everything for freedom. Since 1998, nearly 60,000 people have participated in this program that is only offered during the months of April and November. As with all of Conner Prairie’s interactive programs, this period in history is flawlessly recreated, complete with a mock slave auction, a chance to escape into the dark woods, the bone-chilling fear of being chased by slave hunters and ultimately ending at the safe haven of a Quaker family. Why is it important to leave the comforts of the world you know to experience one of the most terrifying and disturbing periods of history? Hopefully, it will lead to a better understanding of those who endured the unthinkable and an appreciation of the bravery of those who risked it all for freedom. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 776-6006 or visiting www. connerpraire.org.

Healthcare tough-love

Commentary by Terry Anker

Around our house, taking a sick day is not terribly common place – mostly because we’re blessed that our family is fairly hearty stock. So far, we’ve logged very few days off work or school and even fewer visits to the emergency room. That’s not to say that we are immune to illness, but it seems we’ve missed many of the travails that plague so many families. But even still, we are loath to wave the white flag and surrender to ailment. Unless there is profuse bleeding or a fever that measures so high that there is concern about the efficacy of the thermometer, it feels awkward to claim a day off. It seems embarrassingly weak. It seems like a personal failure. The question is routinely framed: could we make it to the office? Of course, we probably could. Our productivity might be worthless. Our coworkers would likely be exposed to our germs. And, our judgment might put our employer at risk. But, we could manage to drive

in, park and sit at our desk. Would it make more sense if the frame were: should we make it to the office? What value might we hope to bring? My eldest this week came home early from school – sick. The nurse called and asked that we rescue him from her care. In his 11 years of out-of-home education, we’ve had less than a handful of these calls. It was good that he came home. He needed the care. After a couple of days of rest and starving the fever, he is on the mend. He didn’t need television or cell phones or his favorite foods in bed. How do we encourage one to overcome inconvenience and adversity without excusing them to disregard the messages from their own bodies? Does healthcare tough-love ever make sense?

Somehow, we’re not the least bit surprised that Gov. Mike Pence and the Indiana Arts Commission chose the Center for the Performing Arts as the host site for the 2013 Governor’s Arts Awards this fall. In our minds, it comes down to this: Tania Castroverde Moskalenko, the Center’s president and chief executive officer, has – yes, again - made good on her promise to bring a wide variety of events to the campus. We’ve come to expect that. Her leadership is at once thoughtful and decisive. She is relentless in pursuit of presenting acts and events that will resonate in the Central Indiana arts community, if not beyond. She is passionate about her role in helping to shape the future of the performing arts for this region, and last week’s joint announcement by Pence and the IAC was proof that her efforts again have borne fruit. “The Palladium stage is the perfect place for Indiana’s best and brightest, having become a landmark of excellence through the presentation of artists from all over the world,” she stated last week. According to the IAC, the awards recognize excellence in artistic achievement, philanthropy, arts education, and leadership in the arts, and at the same time build statewide awareness of the important role the arts play in Indiana. As for the Center and the year ahead, we hear a Palladium schedule is being rounded out and will be rolled out sometime in the next month. While we have no particulars, our understanding is that the lineup – covering country, pop, classical and jazz music - is going to be considered the best yet. Fitting, isn’t it, considering Moskalenko’s ambition for excellence in all areas, programming included?

Mass transit stand disappointing Editor, Steve Greenberg and Brian Kelly’s editorial “Mass Transit: ‘No’ to a tax increase” was disappointing and, frankly, short sighted. The question that should be asked is not whether to fund mass transit, the question should be what is the best method to move people around central Indiana? Factors to consider absolutely include cost but also quality of life (such as time spent sitting in traffic) and environmental factors. Rail, bus and even bicycles all are viable options. Your editorial explicitly states that cars are the only option for transportation. Why do you think that we should not have any other op-

tions and that highways are the cheapest form of transportation? Bus, light rail and bicycling infrastructure improve quality of life and are often more efficient and lower cost options. If you had lived 100 years ago, surely you would have said forget about building highways, spend money to repair hitching posts. If now is not the time for mass transit, when is? Your editorial does not consider a shred of data and implies that we should never consider mass transit. It is time that we have more cost effective and efficient transportation solutions than simply to put every dime of transportation investment into highways. David Schweikert, 46060

Time zone study needed Editor, Senate President Pro Tempore David Long and House Speaker Brian Bosma are opposing proposals for a legislative study to review Indiana’s time zone. Eastern Time was imposed on Hoosiers more than 50 years ago and has never been properly vetted. There are some facts beyond dispute. Hoosiers who set their clocks to Eastern Time have, on

average, the latest sunrises and darkest mornings in the 48 adjacent states. Gov. Pence’s stated goal is to make Indiana a better place to live. But if the General Assembly leadership refuses to study reasonable possibilities there is little hope the Governor’s aspirations will be realized. A time zone study needs to be conducted no matter how inconvenient the truth discovered is to some. Jim Burdsall, 46226

Wilson’s column is immature Editor, The only appropriate response to Ms. Wilson’s recent commentary, “Seriously, consider the children,” is seriously, there is neither humor nor maturity in her comments. There is a trifling attempt to put a humorous touch to the piece, however it only disguises Ms. Wilson’s apparent objective, which is to “bully” others by using a column in a local newspaper to castigate those whom do not conduct themselves as she deems appropriate. The entire piece is rife with insulting and condemning language and personal attacks based solely on her point of view and personal opinion.

The problem is clear Commentary by Dick Wolfsie A Canadian clothing company that manufactures yoga garb has a quality-control problem that is alienating its fan base. Especially the part of the base that has a big fanny. Lululemon’s hottest item is a pair of stretch yoga pants that sells for $100. This is the perfect garment for men and women engaged in a transcendental endeavor to free themselves from material attachments. Here’s the problem. On Lulu’s website there is a disclaimer that reads: “In some cases, you may experience extreme sheerness.” In other words, you can see through the pants. When your garment selection lists possible side effects, you may need to reconsider your wardrobe. One consumer expert suggested that before you buy the pants, you should try them on and bend over to see if there is a “see-through” issue. Of course, you are hardly in the best position to gather accurate information that way. A company spokesperson suggests you do a yoga maneuver called a “downward dog” to test the transparency of the fabric. I had no idea what this was, so I searched for it on YouTube. My wife came down to the basement when I was watching a video demonstration, and now I’m forbidden to go online unless I have spousal supervision. One yoga enthusiast, presently employed as an engineer, said she doesn’t mind 16 | April 2, 2013

that her butt shows, but she dislikes the fabric because of the excessive static cling. This is what happens when you ask an electrical engineer a question about tight translucent pants instead of asking a structural engineer. The controversy highlighted for me how many unintentionally funny things corporate people say under pressure. I offer these actual statements from recent news reporting as evidence: A sales representative addressed the problem of defective inventory already in the stores. “The company will be pulling our pants down from the shelves.” When you utter a sentence that includes the phrase, “pulling our pants down,” you’re just asking for some tabloid journalist to take your quote out of context. Another company official noted: “Investors have been plowing money into the stock, so we still have room to grow,” which is not only commentary on future potential but a nod to the biggest advantage of pants made of spandex. And finally, Lululemon’s chief financial officer added that analysts are taking a “wait and see attitude.” Men parked in front of the fitness center are adopting a similar approach.

Community doctor makes heart history news@currentinwestfield.com Community Heart and Vascular Hospital has announced that Community Physician Network electrophysiologist, Emily Rose, M.D., is the first in Central Indiana and among the first in the nation to implant a single-chamber implantable cardiac device developed by BIOTRONIK, a leading manufacturer of cardiovascular medical technology. Last month, the Food and Drug Administration granted final approval for the BIOTRONIK Lumax 740 DX System. The device is a first-in-class ICD that uses a single lead with atrial sensing capabilities. Single-chamber ICDs are sophisticated electronic devices that employ

a thin flexible wire, known as a lead, to deliver an electrical shock to the heart when the heart rate becomes dangerously fast. “While expanding on the benefits of singlechamber ICDs, the new technology provides us with atrial sensing capabilities and home monitoring to keep an eye on important atrial conditions such as A-fib,” Rose said. The DX System also integrates with BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring, allowing physicians to remotely follow their DX patients’ clinical and device statuses daily at anytime, anywhere in the world. The cellular-based platform can detect clinically relevant events, including silent, asymptomatic arrhythmias and device related issues, allowing for earlier medical intervention.

St.Vincent makes Top 100 list – St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital has been named to the list of 100 Hospitals with Great Neurosurgery and Spine Programs by Becker’s Hospital Review. Hospitals were selected based on nominations, clinical accolades, quality care and other spine and neurosurgical proficiencies. “We are proud to be honored as a top 100 hospital in the nation for neurosurgery and spine care,” said Kim Springer, executive director for St.Vincent Neuroscience Institute. “We make every effort to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of care through all areas of neuroscience.” In 2002, St.Vincent expanded its neuroscience service line through the formation of the Indiana Neuroscience Institute. The structure of the program offered a formalized opportunity for St.Vincent to work collaboratively with five affiliated physician practices: Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine; Indiana Neuroscience Associates; Josephson-Wallack-Munshower Neurology; Northwest Radiology Network; and the pediatric neuroscience specialists at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent. The institute specializes in areas of brain and spine tumors; neuroscience traumas and emergencies; cerebrovascular, epilepsy and seizure; movement disorders, neuromuscular and sleep.

When I was a kid, my grandfather used to have this mug in his bathroom. It was behind the mirror in his turn of the century house. It was an old fashioned mirror that opened up to reveal three tiny metal shelves. These shelves were cluttered with medicines and other items that needed to be hidden from public eyes. The little mug lived in this cabinet. In this white mug he’d mix up shaving cream with a thick brush. He died when I was 6 or 7 years old, but I remember nearly 40 years later this little mug. After he’d mix the shaving cream in the mug, he’d spread it on his gruff face, weathered from years and years of smoking. He’d then shave his face with a metal safety razor that was as old as him – at 67 he seemed ancient to me at the time. As he would swish that razor in the water-filled sink, I’d stare at the words on the side of that mug. The mug read, “Today is the first day of the rest

of your life.” I never understood it. How could today be the first day? What’s the rest of your life even mean? Years later, I now know. Years later, I think of it all the time. Years later, I wonder whether the day before he died if he knew what it meant. The past is there to learn from, to correct and refine from. But, it is the past. Too much looking back and you lose site of the next turn in the road and the next opportunity to make the choice to be happier. I’m a big fan of history and understand the past is certainly a key to not repeating mistakes. However, making your mind look forward and create a better rest of your life, that’s the real spirit of living. The rest of your life started today, did you notice?

Dubai somewhere between Vegas and Oz

Now offering

Commentay by Don Knebel Dubai, one of the United Arab Emirates, occupies a strip of desert along the Persian Gulf barely larger than Rhode Island. In 2000, it had fewer residents than metropolitan Indianapolis. And yet by 2012, it had become one of the world’s top 10 tourist destinations, drawing more visitors than Rome, Amsterdam and Shanghai. Its extraordinary appeal is based on a unique combination of superlatives and incongruities, making it something of a cross between Las Vegas and the Land of Oz. Dubai has become famous for its over the top architecture. More than half a mile high and twice as tall as the Empire State Building, the Burj Khalifa is by far the world’s tallest building. Its associated shopping mall is the largest in the world and attracted more visitors in 2012 than New York City. The world’s largest man-made islands, just off the Dubai coast, are in the shape of palm fronds. A hotel in the form of a sail claims, without contradiction, to be the world’s only seven star hotel. And on and on. But the unique appeal of Dubai is also created by its juxtaposition of images and cultures. With the outside temperature above 110 degrees, people line up to rent coats and gloves so they can ski one of five slopes on an indoor mountain more than 25 stories high. While Muslim residents of Dubai are forbidden from

consuming alcohol, guests in Dubai’s hundreds of hotels drink expensive wines in front of simulated fires. Turbaned sheiks, accompanied by wives hidden behind burqas and hijabs, shop for provocative lingerie in a mall that also features mannequins wearing burqas ornamented with expensive jewels. Worshippers use a high speed monorail to attend Friday prayers in a sand stone mosque reflecting a design first used more than a thousand years ago. If you have tired of Las Vegas and don’t know

the way to Oz, a trip to Dubai might be just what you need. But first a caution. Dubai is still a desert and blinding sand storms sometime interfere with its effort to create an earthly paradise.

LIFESTYLE Grammar Guy

Graduating from grammar school Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question: “I have two grammatical questions. Which is correct: “almost always” or “most always?” It seems to be the new thing to say “most always.” I have always said “almost always” in a sentence. The second question is: “Graduate high school/college” or “graduate from high school/ college.” I learned “graduate from high school/college.” (Donna Jelgerhuis, Westfield) Answer: Thanks for writing in, Donna. To knock out your first question: Never fear, you’ve been using proper grammar all along. “Most always” is simply slang. It’s the grammatical equivalent of only raising your arms to shoulder level during jumping jacks. To answer your question about the verb “to graduate,” we need a quick course in transitive and intransitive verbs. A transitive verb is one which requires a direct object. Examples of transitive verbs include “catch,” “eat” and “read” (“catch the ball,” “eat your dinner,” “read a book”). Intransitive verbs require no direct object: “Jim complained.” “Sally jumped.” “Mike ran.” You will often find intransitive verbs followed by an adverb or prepositional phrase to further de-

scribe the action: “Sally jumped over the hurdle.” What makes “graduate” a little tricky is that it can be both a transitive and intransitive verb. As a transitive verb, “graduate” means to grant an academic degree: “Butler University graduated 500 students last spring.” As an intransitive verb, “graduate” means to be granted an academic degree: “I graduated from high school with a 4.0” Technically it should probably be “I was graduated,” but I think that usage hast mostly fallen by the wayside. When you say, “I graduated high school,” “high school” acts as a direct object. This turns “graduated” into a transitive verb, and makes the sentence mean, “I granted my high school a diploma.” The correct way to express your own graduation is intransitively: “I graduated from high school.” You could also simply say: “I graduated.” Or, as I said when I finally graduated: “Woohoo!”

What makes “graduate” a little tricky is that it can be both a transitive and intransitive verb.

Canine cognitive decline is manageable Commentary by Lisa Beals You have more than likely heard of Alzheimer’s disease, a debilitating disease that affects the memory and behaviors of primarily older adults. Did you ever wonder whether dogs are at risk for the same disease process? Canine cognition dysfunction in dogs is a condition that is similar yet different than Alzheimer’s disease. Studies in canines have found that dogs exhibiting behaviors associated with CCD have deposits of the protein amyloid in their brains, similar to the amyloid plaque buildup that is found in the brains of human Alzheimer’s patients. CCD can only be diagnosed by your veterinarian. However, as the pet parent you may notice a pattern of behavior changes that are worthy of bringing to your veterinarian’s attention. These include a loss of house-training habits, disorientation in a familiar environment, changes

in the way the dog reacts to its siblings and human family members, wandering, and an alteration in sleep patterns and barking. Treatment may include medications, dietary changes, retraining and environmental enrichment. Medical intervention is based upon the belief that cognitive dysfunction may be associated with the depletion of the neurotransmitter

dopamine. The medication L-Deprenyl (Anipryl) helps prolong dopamine activity and may be prescribed for your dog. Your vet may also recommend dietary changes and supplements such as those containing anti-oxidants. Old dogs can learn new tricks, so a consultation with a dog trainer can help manage problem behaviors. You can enrich your dog’s environment with massage, teaching hand signals if your dog’s hearing begins to fail, providing routine and structure to your dog’s day and modifying his environment so that it is smaller and easier to maneuver. Love and support your dog through these life changes. We all know, old dogs are the best dogs.

INSIDE & OUT Decorating

Chevron is hot, hot, hot Commentary by Vicky Earley Trend spotters agree: Chevron is hot. Although the history of the “zig-zag” is quite august, this v-shaped pattern has stormed the landscape of fashion, pop-culture and interior design. The clean lineation of the Chevron has historically been found in badges and insignia used in military or official uniforms to indicate rank or length of service. It was used in heraldry and in the designs of flags. It has sported classic men’s ties, and now, it is the harbinger of current style. There really is no neutral opinion regarding this pattern. You love it or hate it. You see it as fresh and energizing or dizzying and loud.

Make a small room feel big – The way you approach your windows in small spaces can make them seem bigger. Use drapes that match the walls so boundaries don’t come into play. – www.bhg.com

Since the Chevron is a blend of history with cleaner lines, it does provide an immediate and pronounced rejuvenation for a sleepy décor. It slips in easily where vertical stripes were once the star, the horizontal nature of the chevron makes it the unexpected element that makes a room interesting. If jumping in with both feet into the bold world of such a distinct pattern, consider a tone on tone version. Camel paired with ivory is far less jarring than a combination of orange and blue. Whether you go full-force with a bold version or a more subtle approach with soft tones, remember that Chevron is a trend, and trends are temporary. The trend factor makes Chevron the perfect candidate for pillows, window treatments, accent chairs, rugs and accessories. Also, it is the hot sauce of your decorating. A little bit will go a long way. Just as with any other pattern, consider the scale of your chevron. A large scale version is better paired with solids and textures while small scale chevron plays nicely with complimentary patterns. A small dose of Chevron might be just the exclamation point your room is looking for.

Baskets and other organizers can be used and labeled to keep things tidy. – www.bhg. com Bathroom fixtures mean savings – The fixtures and components in the bathroom can add up to big costs. White components – like tubs and toilets – are typically cheaper than others in different color schemes. – www.bhg.com Planning what’s right for you – If you’re at a crossroads in planning this year’s garden, Better Homes and Gardens can help you out online. A quiz can help determine the particulars by asking what resources you have at your disposal. All you need to do is register with the site after taking the quiz. – www.bhg.com

INSIDE & OUT Indoors

Removing a wall changes entire feel of kitchen Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home was a spec home built in 1984 and is located north of Westfield. The homeowners are the original owners. WHY REMODEL: “The 29-year-old kitchen needed an update. We were looking to make the kitchen more open and larger. We also wanted to take advantage of new technology by getting new appliances. We have a more modern style throughout our home, and we wanted the kitchen to match.” DESIGN PHASE: In line with the contemporary style, flat plane doors were placed into the original design. The homeowners were also attracted to the look of bamboo cabinets. Rather than using such an expensive wood species that would have taken the homeowners outside of their budget, the final design called for high-definition laminate with texture. This option offered the look of bamboo, giving the cabinets character and depth, without the large price tag. The homeowners also wanted to open the kitchen up to the dining room using a built-in buffet design.

This goal was achieved by replacing the wall with upper and lower cabinets and a countertop. According to the owners, “We had no idea what we really wanted. We just told the design team we liked a contemporary style. The designer helped us come up with options and then walked us through the process to the final design.” REMOVING WALL: The removal of the wall made a large impact. “Taking out the wall made the kitchen look twice as big as the original. We especially love the look of the new floor and the backsplash.”

FAVORITE FEATURES: The homeowners are pleased with the new kitchen. “We are still learning how to use all of the new technology in our kitchen appliances. We were slow to remodel, but now that we have done the kitchen, we want to do the whole house!”
