COMMUNITY Carmel Marathon
“The mysterious embrace of Christ” – Current Spirituality columnist Bob Walters looks into how it is one comes to find faith and how faith can be passed to others. “’Souls saved’ is squarely the job of the Holy Spirit. But how does that happen? There doesn’t appear to be a formula,” writes Walters. For the full column, visit www.currentincarmel. com and click On The Web.

Community rallying around race By Christian Sorrell email@example.com The third annual Carmel Marathon will be held this Saturday, bringing thousands of people from across the country and the world to Carmel. According to race director Todd Oliver, more than 3,500 runners from 39 states and six countries including Brazil, Canada, Switzerland and South Africa are registered for the weekend’s events. Registration is up 31 percent when compared to last year’s marathon with the main race, the half marathon and the Keybank 8k all setting new registration records. Beyond the marathon itself, the weekend and what it means for Carmel has been embraced by many nearby businesses. Mitchell’s Fish Market in Clay Terrace is creating a special pasta dish. Simply Sweet Shoppe is offering special chocolates. City Center’s Matt the Miller Tavern will be offering a special “runners brunch menu” immediately following the race.
“We are happy to see local businesses activating around our events,” Oliver said. As runners from around the world and businesses have come to embrace the marathon, so too has the Carmel community. Last year’s event was a major success despite cool temperatures and overcast skies. This year’s marathon will be nearly double the size.
“We hope that the community comes out to support all the runners and walkers who have trained through a cold winter and spring even (if it is just) by pulling up a chair along the course, saying ‘great job,’ playing some music or cheering,” Oliver said. “We just want our participants to enjoy the event and enjoy Carmel.”

Shapiro’s future is uncertain By Robert Annis • firstname.lastname@example.org Shapiro’s Delicatessen may sell its final corned-beef sandwich in Carmel this June if the Carmel Redevelopment Commission moves forward with an alleged plan to evict the famed restaurateur. City councilor Luci Snyder was informed by CRC member Dave Bowers that if restaurant owner Brian Shapiro doesn’t pay his back rent by the end of June, the city would evict the business and put the building up for sale. Neither Bowers nor Shapiro returned phone calls seeking comment. City spokeswoman Nancy Heck said attorneys for the city and Shapiro were renegotiating his lease, with Shapiro’s rent actually increasing on a weekly basis to better cover expenses. The CRC is crafting a letter to Shapiro, but Heck declined to say whether it included lease-termination language. Despite lofty expectations when he opened in 2002, business never truly picked up at the Shapiro’s Range Line Road location. In fact, business was said to be so bad that in 2010, the CRC entered into a complicated lease agreement with the restaurant and the Carmel City Center Community Development Corp., known as 4CDC, to keep it afloat. Despite the groups’ buying out Shapiro’s nearly $2.5-million mortgage, Shapiro retains 98 percent ownership
of the building, according to Hamilton County parcel records. Lease documents from the Clerk-Treasurer’s office reveal Shapiro currently pays the CRC $1,000 per month in rent, plus a percentage rent of the lesser of 4 percent of gross sales or 50 percent of net sales. The $1,000 rent is in turn paid to REI Real Estate Services, which acts as a property manager. According to the original lease agreement, the rent would be raised to a “fair-market rate” in August 2014. It’s believed the city is asking Shapiro to pay $4,300 a month in rent, but it’s not known if he would continue to pay a portion of his profits, as well. Despite lease terms most Carmel businesses would likely envy, Shapiro hasn’t always paid his rent on time. Current reported last August that Shapiro had paid only $4,000 on his lease to that point in 2012, with no payments after April. Clerk-Treasurer Diana Cordray said Shapiro has been making periodic payments during the past few months, but she said she has no idea whether Shapiro is up-to-date on his obligations. Heck wasn’t able to confirm that, either, and CRC head Les Olds gave a terse “no comment” when asked about the situation. City councilor Eric Seidensticker said Shapiro has looked to reformat the restaurant, scaling back the seating area to create a second, leasable space, but that has yet to happen.

The Third Annual
Carmel Marathon Join us April 20 for an exciting day of running, walking and festivities. Do you enjoy exercise? Are you looking for a fun fitness challenge? Then look no further than the third annual Carmel Marathon. The Carmel Marathon is a great opportunity to take on the challenge of running a full marathon while also getting the chance to meet new people with similar fitness goals. And if you’re not ready for a full marathon, there are lots of other ways to participate: a half marathon, a marathon relay, an 8k run and a 1-mile family fitness walk will all be part of the event. Running a full marathon is a serious test of endurance, and it’s critical to have expert medical care available throughout the course. That’s why St.Vincent Carmel Hospital has partnered with the Carmel Marathon and the Carmel Fire Department to provide medical support. “St.Vincent Carmel Hospital has been the official hospital and medical provider for the Carmel Marathon since the very beginning, and we’ve really enjoyed the opportunity,” said Dr. Joel Kary, sports medicine physician with St.Vincent and medical director for the Carmel Marathon. Making sure athletes are safe throughout a 26-mile course is a serious challenge. But Dr. Kary and his volunteer team of physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals have developed a system
that ensures runners will always have access to medical care if the need arises. “Our medical tent at the finish line is basically a portable emergency room,” said Dr. Kary. “We’re prepared to do lab work, IVs, treat common running injuries including sprains, blisters and cramps, and also more serious injuries if necessary. We’ll have between 15 and 18 medical stations located throughout the course, and we have a mobile command center and ambulances available. Medical care for the athletes is never more than a minute or two away.” If anything serious would happen, participants can run with a peace of mind knowing they have access to St.Vincent Carmel Hospital Emergency Department – Indiana’s only Emergency Center of Excellence. The Carmel Marathon starts at 7:30 a.m. on April 20, beginning at the Palladium at the corner of 3rd Avenue and City Center Drive.

25 more jobs coming to town By Robert Annis • email@example.com A Hamilton County company is relocating to Carmel soon and doubling its workforce.

The developer of senior housing and care facilities will begin hiring development and management positions later this year.

Before time runs out Commentary by Jeff Worrell As you read their names and ages, please rise to your feet and gentlemen, please also remove your hat. Feel free to offer a sharp salute if you are so inclined. Harold Kaiser, 93. Alexander Bence, 87. Myron Rockhill, 92. Chris Zeheralis, 86. Schuyler Hales, 85. Harold Jennings, 86. Marlin Savidge, 88. Dewitt Auer (age unknown). Willis Welty, 86. Larry Brewer, 92. Charles Bowman, 90. Eleven brave men from Hamilton County are going on a march once again. A very different kind of march than the one they were called to some 60 years ago. This time, for their heroic and selfless duty to their country as Veterans of World War II, the march is for them; a gift from a grateful nation and admiring public. On April 20, these 11 brave men will join other Vets and board Indy Honor Flight along with medical personnel and an Honor Guardian for each man. Their mission: to travel to Washington D.C., to personally experience the World War II Memorial. The monument opened in 2004 and since then, Honor Flight has believed it is critical that WWII vets have the opportunity to visit the site before time runs out. Volunteer Honor Guardian Lori Garrison is accompanying Harold Kaiser on his march to Washington. She said, “Approximately 800 WWII vets die each day, so it is critical we get as many to the memo-
rial as possible, as quickly as possible. The Honor Flight Network is a great way to do that, and I am proud to accompany Mr. Kaiser.” The Honor Flight takes place during one very full day. That evening, Indy Honor Flight will make its final approach and the vets will take part in the final leg of their journey; A Welcome Home Celebration at the Indiana National Guard Armory-38th Infantry Division, 3912 W. Minnesota St., Indianapolis. A large crowd would be ideal, so the public is invited to show up and proudly wave an American flag. Arrive no later than 8:30 p.m. The day is all about the vets. The sacrifice they made in the name of freedom can never be repaid. “An Honor Flight is simply a small token of our appreciation for everything they have done,” Garrison said. “I, along with the other Guardians, will make sure the day is filled with thanks, recognition and admiration for each one of these vets.” To learn more about the program, donate money to make sure there are future flights or sign up your vet for a trip, visit www.indyhonorflight.org.

Music, lemons and lessons for success By Maddie Scott • firstname.lastname@example.org Hamilton County Leadership Academy students John Hughey and Chris Lewis recently decided to help young musicians in Hamilton County learn what it takes to be an entrepreneur. Working in the arts, Hughey, director of external relations for the Center for the Performing Arts, and Lewis, the Hughey director of education for CFTPA, decided to create a Team Entrepreneur project that will help young musicians market themselves. The Hamilton County Leadership Academy is a year-long leadership development program that identifies and prepares informed leaders for the community. To graduate from the HCLA, students break into small groups to come up with a project that will help people in the community. “We would encounter kids who wanted to know, ‘How can I perform?’” Lewis said. Hughey and Lewis decided to use their project to help answer that question. To do so, the duo decided to partner with the local Hamilton County Lemonade Day to help teens have a better understanding of how to become an entrepreneur. Lemonade Day is a nationwide event that helps young people discover the skills it takes to be a successful entrepreneur by running a lemonade stand. Hughey and Lewis decided to adopt the same ideas as Lemonade Day but have students sell their talents instead of lemonade. “We decided to adopt the same tools Lem-

onade Day uses,” Lewis said. “We will show teens how to create a budget, market themselves on social media and teach them how to find clients.” Hughey and Lewis also decided to involve Guerin Catholic High School’s sports and marketing class. Students who are taking the marketing class have to create a market plan to promote and publicize the musical lemonade stands. Lewis On May 18 from 1 to 3 p.m., students will get the opportunity to share their talents with the public when the Palladium opens the doors. The public is free to watch and pay the young musicians while enjoying a refreshing cup of lemonade. The event will include three soloist and two ensembles.

Bill sidetracked – The Senate has voted to move a bill that would have expanded mass transit in Central Indiana into a summer study committee. The bill would have allowed area residents to vote on higher income taxes to pay for the proposed 10-year, $1.3-billion project. The expansion proposal would expand mass transit options from Noblesville to downtown Indianapolis with bus service and rail lines. The bill passed the House but encountered Republican opposition in the Senate. Republican Appropriations Committee Chairman Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) dropped his sponsorship of the bill in March.

Record number serve as pages – State Sen. Mike Delph (R-Carmel) welcomed nine local student pages to the Statehouse last week, including two of his daughters. Pages spend a day at the Statehouse, touring the historic building, observing debates from the chamber floor and interacting with their state senators. “This is the most pages I’ve had serve in one day, which shows me that our students are actively interested in their state’s government,” Delph said. “I really enjoy working with our pages. I hope to see more students get involved with this program and use this opportunity to learn more about government.” To learn how you can register your student to serve as a Senate page, visit www.in.gov/senatepageprogram.

you to take action afterwards,” Brown said. Earlier this year, Chaucie’s Place launched its latest program, Lifelines. This youth suicide prevention program targets the entire school community, not just the students. Through four different components, the program targets administration, school faculty and staff, parents and students in eighth, ninth, and tenth grade. Last week, Westfield Washington Schools announced that it would be adding Lifelines to its curriculum in the future.

For more than a decade, Chaucie’s Place has stood up for child victims of sexual abuse throughout Carmel and Hamilton County. Chaucie’s Place was a child advocacy center specializing in forensic interviews for victims of sexual abuse, acting as a hub for law enforcement, prosecution and child protective services for the first 10 years of its existence. Since 2010, Chaucie’s Place has refocused its efforts on community and school prevention programs aimed at stopping abuse and suicide before they happen. The change came after a rift between old leadership of Chaucie’s Place and law enforcement officials eventually led to the creation of a second, competing child advocacy center. “(That was) a very difficult time for this community,” said Toby Stark, Chaucie’s Place’s executive director. “We shifted our focus to prevention, rather than reacting to abuse when it takes place. Reacting is so important but at the end of the day, if you can prevent harm from coming to our children in the first place, there is no greater calling.” Between 2001 and 2010, Chaucie’s Stark Place conducted more than 2,600 interviews with sexual abuse victims. According to Stark, the organization still conducts interviews when asked and now averages around 10 per year.
Body Safety, Chaucie’s Place’s first program, has been a part of the organization since 2001and is aimed at young children in kindergarten, second and fourth grade. “The program recognizes good touches from bad touches,” said Julie Williams, counselor at Noblesville’s White River Elementary. “The program’s benefits range from prevention all the way to letting the children be heard. It empowers them to have control over their own bodies.” Carmel Clay Schools was the first local school to implement www.currentincarmel.com

Chaucie's Place transitions to preventional education for Carmel During the past two years, local child advocacy center Chaucie’s Place has shifted its focus from trauma minimization to sexual abuse and youth suicide prevention. The organization recently launched its latest program, Lifelines, aimed at preventing youth suicide.
Fourth Annual Friends of Chaucie’s Place Breakfast What: An open-to-the-public, community event of breakfast, donations and a panel including two survivors of sexual abuse and a parent who will speak about their journey. According to Chaucie’s Place, this event will be an emotional, but important morning for the community. When: April 24, 7:30 to 9 a.m. Where: Ritz Charles, 12156 N.

In 2010, Chaucie’s Place staff became authorized to train parents and any adult working with children as part of Stewards of Children, a national child sexual abuse prevention program designed to educate adults about how to prevent, recognize and react appropriately to child sexual abuse. “The Stewards of Children training deals with very upsetting content, and I think it can be especially difficult for those of us that care so deeply about the well-being of children,” said Jennifer Brown, assistant manager of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s Extended School Enrichment. “(Our staff members were) a bit shell shocked to learn how pervasive this issue really is. Many have said that they will use this information in their jobs to watch the children more closely for any signs of abuse. They also feel much more confident about reporting any suspicions they might have.” Brown Many school districts and even some local corporations have put their staff and administration through the program. “It was one of the best trainings I have ever attended. So many times, you can go through a training and leave with a few new ideas, but no real plan of action. This is a training that motivates Current in Carmel
Chaucie’s Place relies heavily on its volunteers. With only two full-time and two part-time staff members, it simply would not be possible for Chaucie’s Place to reach as many students throughout Carmel and the county as it does without a large group of community volunteers. One of those volunteers, Jenn Funk, has been guiding Body Safety sessions on her own and has seen the effects on herself, the students and even her own children. “As a volunteer, it’s been very eyeopening. Things you assume that children would know, you are surprised to find out that if they aren’t told or taught, it’s not intuitive,” said Funk, a Fishers resident. Funk Chaucie’s Place has implemented its Body Safety program in schools throughout the county and expects to reach as many as 10,000 students this year.
Beyond this month’s annual breakfast event, Stark is looking to continue to grow Lifelines and the other prevention programs throughout the surrounding communities. On April 25, Carmel-based NextGear Capitol will be building a shed at Chaucie’s Place as part of Companies with a Mission. By completing the project, NextGear will be allowed to apply for a grant on behalf of Chaucie’s Place, a grant that could fund the construction and renovation of a training room at the organization’s existing facility. Grants range from $2,000 to $15,000. Stark estimates the training room will cost about $25,000 overall. Chaucie’s Place will be holding its annual Beach Bash fundraising event in October. With admission of $75 per person, Stark is expecting to see more than 250 people at this year’s event which will feature a luau theme.

We have lost a true leader
Unclaimed funds It is our position that the Indiana Attorney General’s office is helping Hoosiers by uncovering millions of dollars in unclaimed funds. Beneficiaries of long-forgotten insurance policies may soon be able to recover proceeds they may not know even existed. Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office has recently uncovered $18,026,392.08 in unclaimed property through agreements with some of the nation’s largest life insurance providers. The funds were discovered as a result of an audit performed on behalf of Indiana and other states. According to the Attorney General’s office, these initial funds are only a portion of the proceeds that are expected to be uncovered. These unclaimed properties belong to Hoosiers who may have forgotten details, misplaced a policy or not even known they were listed as a beneficiary on the account of their friend or relative. Turned over funds to the state are posted online at www.IndianaUnclaimed. gov. The Unclaimed Property Division’s toll free number is 1-866-IN-CLAIM (1-866-462-5246). It is our opinion that the Friends of Chaucie’s Place Breakfast, 7:30 a.m. on April 24 at Ritz Charles in Carmel, is an apropos opportunity to focus on National Child Abuse Prevention Month. We urge your attendance. To make a difference, please visit www.chauciesplace.org for more information.

I’ll have another
Commentary by Terry Anker
How much work is too much work? Even as unemployment has ballooned to alarming levels in recent years, those of us who are working are spending more hours at our labors than ever before. In fact, time on the job has increased precipitously in the last generation. Now, the ubiquitous “smart” phones indicate that, even as we seem to find greater freedom from the tether of the traditional 9 to 5 existence, we are expected to be available night and day. Early humans developed language to improve face-to-face communication. From there came the written word. Then as we became more civilized, we added traditional post (snail mail). For centuries, we managed. Then, electronic communication was next with telegraph, telephone, email, voicemail and text in short order. With each, another order of magnitude was brought to already full days. In timelines now measured in days not centuries, we swim in newly created and available information. All
of these tools make us more productive, perhaps. And besides, few if any of us are ready to give up the modern conveniences. So how do we manage to remain engaged without succumbing to info obsession? How do we create boundaries? And, are we facing an epidemic of workaholicism? If an alcoholic drinks because they cannot prevent themselves from doing so, then does it stand to reason that a workaholic is likewise impaired? For many, finding the balance between a productive and gainful existence and a dangerous obsession may not be clear cut. When work, some might say, things that need to be done – emails to answer, calls to return, tasks to crossoff the list – is awaiting attention, can we find the will to walk away?

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. - Thomas Edison Current in Carmel
Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher may be gone, but her legacy, we hope, will live forever. The “Iron Lady” died last Monday, and, among other things, she left us with powerful insights too numerous to list here. In tribute to her, we’ve chosen our favorite: “I think we’ve been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it’s the government’s job to cope with it. ‘I have a problem, I’ll get a grant.’ ‘I’m homeless, the government must house me.’ They’re casting their problem on society. … People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There’s no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation.” It is our opinion that Thatcher was the most dynamic and decisive leader of our time, a politician of true conviction. She took office following Britain’s “Winter of Discontent” of the late 1970s; hers was a nation plagued by strikes by public-sector unions. She, in effect, saved Britain from socialism, turning around a moribund economy. And, her steely resolve and candid relationships with President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev converged to help end the Cold War. Not a bad legacy. In this day and age of wishy-washy politicians without conviction - think House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - it’s painful to learn of the passing of a vanishing breed of leader. What a shame Lady Thatcher wasn’t born an American. We could have used her in the White House. We’ll leave you with one more Thatcher quote: “When I’m out of politics, I’m going to run a business, it’ll be called Rent-A-Spine.” Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC.

Stand against bill is supported Editor, I was surprised but uplifted to read your editorial opposing the mass transit bill as written. HB 1011 is a financial boondoggle waiting to happen. There are so many things wrong with the idea it is difficult to pick where to start. First, the concept of “letting the people decide” is heartwarming but a recipe for disaster. The head of the group pushing the bill, Ron Giffords, has been quoted his group is poised to spend “millions” in PR/advertising to push passage of the referendum once the bill passes. There will not be a fair evaluation by the public of the pros/cons of the project, only hope and positive change will be highlighted. Second, I am in full support of allowing IndyGo to expand its routes and offer additional capacity to better gauge its popularity and need. However, giving full taxing authority to a newly appointed board that will embark on an unproven design with extreme opportunity for cost overruns and the penchant for construction delays should be defeated. No light-rail system has been built in the last 50 years on time, on budget or met projected

ridership goals. It is wrong to compare this amenity to schools or other infrastructure projects which have definite needs and proven usage. The project including light rail is being sold on the assumption of receiving $600-plus million in Federal funds. It is highly doubtful and unrealistic to believe the Federal government can come up with these funds, in light of its fiscal woes. The Indianapolis region does not have the density to warrant light rail and future growth projections touted for Hamilton County will not mirror what happened in the 1980-2010 timeframe. We will grow but not at such a frenetic pace as before. Finally, construction of the light rail portion will require dozens of current usable streets and intersections be torn up for years before any improvement is seen. It would be better to start incrementally with expanded IndyGo service and new modern busses with Wi-Fi to see the interest and usage. Rick McKinney At-Large Member of the Hamilton County Council
Editor, Once again, as soon as the weather turns nice the problem of aggressive bike riders on the Monon Trail is back. Everyone has seen them - dressed in their fancy bike outfits flying in and out of walkers screaming “on your left.” If they want to train for the “Tour de France,” use the dedicated bike lanes on the streets, not the Monon Trail during peak usage hours. Last time I checked, slower moving trail users have the right-of-way. Just because you scream “on your left” doesn’t mean slower trail users need to jump completely off the trail so you don’t have to slow down. Those bikes have brakes - learn how to use them. Last weekend, I experienced two near misses of being run-over by ABRs. If I would have been walking my dog on the second incident my dog would have been hit by the bike. The rider even had the nerve to yell get out of my way. ABRs need to slow down or ride on off hours before someone gets seriously hurt. Regards, Becky Feigh

Happier when I get to leave Commentary by Danielle Wilson I was a stay-at-home mom for nine years. NINE. YEARS. And it seemed more like 20 while I was living it. I think that’s because parenting is tough, and when you feel isolated and bored on a daily basis, month after month, the time does not pass swiftly. At least that was my experience. I know many moms who absolutely love being at home with little ones. And I have to admit, now that I’m working full time again, there are moments when I long for the neverget-out-of-my-pajamas-because-the-baby-willjust-vomit-on-my-clothes-anyway kind of day. So when our freak spring blizzard shut down work and school, I was ecstatic that I’d have the chance to spend a quality day with my kids. With Norman Rockwell as my guide, I planned everything out: I’d prepare delicious pancakes and bacon for breakfast, and then we’d have family fun creating the perfect snowman in the back yard while our lab frolicked among the drifts. The boys wouldn’t even be tempted to play Xbox because the lure of board games would be too strong to resist, and the girls would while away their afternoon painting with watercolors. Perhaps a pot roast for dinner? We’d finish our day with a rousing game of charades – fireside, of course! Well, Normal Rockwell can stuff it. I did manage to get breakfast on the table, though only two
of my four children woke up in time to enjoy it. At noon, I chucked the batter and told my just waking teenager he’d need to fend for himself if he wanted lunch. And I was able to spend about an hour outside, though shoveling the sidewalk and driveway do not a snowman make. My daughters eventually joined me, but by then I was suffering from lower back strain and frostbite, and had to go back inside. They only lasted another 30 minutes before calling it quits. An afternoon game of Monopoly started off fine but soon reduced to several wanna-be real estate moguls bickering over shady deals and money-laundering scams. At 3 p.m., I called a moratorium on all supposed family activities and ordered everyone to go enjoy his or her favorite electronic device in solitude. Just shut the hell up and leave me alone! Bedtime could not come soon enough. So, even though the day didn’t pan out quite as I’d hoped, and Norman Rockwell totally stood me up, I was reaffirmed in my decision to return to work. I’m definitely a better (and happier) mom when I get to leave the house. Peace out.

A jarring experience Commentary by Dick Wolfsie The sign in Grannie Fuchs’ store in Metamora is pretty direct: “You break it – you own it.” Fair warning to those who cruise the tiny shop full of items easily shattered. But the admonition also applies to an honor about to be bestowed by the folks at Guinness World Records who agree that once a record is broken you also own it…at least until they say otherwise. What’s the record we’re talking about? Grannie Fuchs’ little store, officially known as Grannie’s Ice Cream and Cookie Jars, features more than 2,500 different cookie jars. Wait, I should be specific. (You know how fussy those Guinness people are.) That would be 2,653, to be exact…and it never changes. Once a jar is sold, it’s quickly replaced on the shelf. That’s the most cookie jars on public display anywhere in the world. Folks entering the store are immediately overwhelmed, often thinking they’ve happened upon a museum and not a retail establishment. Many see jars they remember from childhood. “I had my hand slapped several times dipping into that one,” remembers one customer. Grannie, 77, who suffers from a touch of Alzheimer’s, still maintains an encyclopedic memory of her inventory. On a recent buying trip, she picked out 135 jars, each of them unique to the store’s collection. “That’s one thing she never forgets. She’s knows everything we have for
sale,” says her daughter Connie, who along with her sister, helps maintain the shop, one of the few in Metamora open year-round. Where does Grannie find her cookie jars? Estate sales, cookie jar auctions (yes, they exist) and garage sales, where she often gets a really good deal. A jar she buys for three bucks can go for quite a bit more if it’s unusual. Several manufacturers bring in top dollar, especially the McCoy Co. Some makers have used the McCoy name on the bottom of their jars illegally when reproducing the item, thus the origin of the phrase “The Real McCoy.” There are several alternative theories on the genesis of this expression, but this one works best in this story. The only food they sell is the best darn-tootin’ ice cream in a waffle cone you’ll ever taste. “People wonder why we don’t sell cookies,” says Connie. “I really don’t know why people ask that.” Yeah, what a silly question. Earlier in this column I noted that Grannie’s store would be in the Guinness World Records, but I have just learned that this has not been made official yet. So, for now, let’s keep a lid on it.

Mayo vs. Miracle Whip Commentary by Mike Redmond I look around and I see a country divided, two sides facing off in bitter opposition, neither showing the slightest inclination to compromise or indicating any interest in closing the rift between them. I wonder: Is there any way, any way at all, to bridge the gap between Mayonnaise People and Miracle Whip People? No kidding: When it comes to the white stuff people put on their bologna sandwiches and in their potato salads, people act like there is religion involved. It’s almost as if Mayonnaise People hold themselves to be keepers of the One True Faith, the abiding and unchanging rock to which American lunches are anchored, while Miracle Whip People believe a new covenant was formed when Kraft introduced the product in 1933, at the Chicago World’s Fair. In fact, people can be more religious about this than they can about religion. Far be it from me to say mixed marriages never work, but I do think Condiment Compatibility is something we ought to be looking at in pre-marital counseling. Why do we get this way over something so seemingly inconsequential? I think it is because we are tribal by nature. Seeking congenial relationships with compatible people, we naturally form ourselves into groups based on shared
20 | April 16, 2013
interests and beliefs. And then, because we still struggle with the whole live-and-let-live thing – we are only human, after all – we feel called to defend these interests and beliefs from those who do not share them. Or, to put it the short way, we’re ridiculous, and we obviously do not have enough to do. Where mayonnaise vs. Miracle Whip is concerned, the disagreement diverts us from serious questions, such as Should we be eating this stuff in the first place? and Have you ever seen what goes into bologna? and What kind of wine should you serve with a fried bologna sandwich? Occasionally, our tribal instincts do us credit. When we all come together as one Supersized Tribe of Americans, we’re pretty impressive. We’ve saved the world a couple of times doing just that. The thing is, we have to get over our differences to accomplish anything, and we don’t seem inclined to do that these days. As for me, I’ll continue my own ecumenical work. You see, I use both mayonnaise AND Miracle Whip, and occasionally I interchange them. Perhaps in this way I can set a good example. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker.

He’s a fantastic player,” Neckard said. In performance, this camaraderie could not be more evident. Throughout their sets, the four members joke with each other, share stories and history with the audience, and take a very informal approach to their shows. In fact, sharing the history of the music is a major part of the experience. “John has a vast knowledge of song history,” Bedwell said. “If we have fun, then the audience has fun.” Fun and an appreciation of the music are the driving forces behind the Poison River Boys. One might suppose that such gifted and seasoned musicians would seek a larger audience. However, for this band, the reward lies in the music and the fellowship. “We play private parties, libraries,” Coleman said. “We play quite a bit at the Nickel Plate Arts and that really suits us. We don’t play bars or tour.” “We don’t want it to be a job,” Bedwell said. “We just want to enjoy practicing and playing together. We’re just four old guys doing something we love to do and having fun doing it!”

Highlights of the 2013 Amendments to the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines The Indiana Supreme Court recently approved the order amending the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines, (“Guidelines”). The amendments became effective March 1, 2013, and will not apply retroactively to Court Orders entered prior to that date unless the parties (1) formally agree to adopt the same or (2) petition the Court to ensure the amended 2013 Guidelines apply to their Parenting Time Order. Some of the significant changes include amendments to holiday parenting time, communication provisions, options for additional parenting time, and to address high conflict cases. Holiday Parenting Time: Under the former Guidelines, holiday parenting time was to take precedence over the regular parenting time schedule. In the event that the holiday schedule resulted in one party receiving three (3) consecutive parenting time weekends, the third weekend the parties were to switch weekends. The purpose was to ensure that neither parent would have three (3) consecutive weekends with the children. Unfortunately, the effect was often to disrupt the regular parenting time schedules previously agreed upon by both parents. Under the new Guidelines, holiday parenting time still takes precedence over regular parenting time, but clarifies that the possibility of three (3) consecutive weekends does exist and is not prohibited. Further, the holiday parenting time schedule was updated to include different holidays and others were removed from the official listing, including New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day which are no longer outside the normal Winter break schedule. Additionally, Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, President’s Day weekend, and Fall Break were added to the list. Parallel Parenting Order. “Parallel Parenting” is a section newly incorporated into the Guidelines, which includes a model
Current in Carmel
Parallel Parenting Order in the appendix of Guidelines. Such Orders are appropriate in “high conflict” situations. Parallel Parenting is designed to limit communication between parents in high conflict cases. To do so, it is suggested that the midweek parenting time visit and/or option for make-up parenting time are not allowed. The Orders are subject to periodic review by Court so as to allow for a modification when appropriate. Importantly included for the first time is a list of unacceptable reasons for one parent to deny the other parent parenting time. Finally, amendments have been made to the provisions concerning communication, including suggestions to use Skype and video chat and the use of long term planning calendars is encouraged. The commonly-known “Right of First Refusal” has been redefined in a more positive light as an “opportunity got additional parenting time.” As part of these revisions, Indiana takes its first steps into specifically addressing the idea of the parties developing a parenting time plan and incorporating this into their decree terms. There are a number of additional amendments which have been adopted not addressed within this article. Thus, it is imperative that parents read the new Guidelines to become informed on all issues which may impact their parenting time.

“Django Unchained” • R, 165 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd Quentin Tarantino has always been a filmmaker who believed in making his films as entertaining as possible, though in recent years it seemed like the person he was most trying to entertain was himself. His latest, the quasi-Western “Django Unchained,” is his most accessible film since “Pulp Fiction,” a purely delightful frolic that’s equal parts gleeful revenge fantasy, antislavery jeremiad and comedy of manners. Jamie Foxx plays the title character, a beatendown slave who’s given a second chance at life when he’s rescued by King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a courtly little German who impersonates a traveling dentist but is really a bounty killer. (“Bounty hunter” is not really accurate, since he only pursues men wanted dead or alive, and always opts for the former.)
Schultz enlists his help, in return for tutoring the slave as his protégé and helping rescue Django’s wife (Kerry Washington) from a bucolic plantation named Candieland. The owner, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), is a symbol of genteel Southern rot, his elegantly coiffed exterior hiding an inner moral decay mirrored by his head house slave, Steven (Samuel L. Jackson), who views the uppity Django as upending the proper order of things. Hysterically funny one moment and bursting with blood-soaked violence the next, “Django Unchained” is a giddy absurdist romp.

Wines can be easily described Commentary by Ron Hopwood Of course, you can enjoy wine reasonably well without ever understanding what you are tasting. But don’t you understand music more if you know what you are listening to? Don’t you enjoy food more if you know what you are eating? Even at the most high-spirited gathering, thinking about what you are drinking only takes a few moments. And it helps if you have some sort of framework in your mind to work from. A vocabulary of tasting terms is a great aid. These descriptions can be as straightforward or as fanciful as you like, providing that each one means something to you. And before you say that wine tasters’ language is all pretentious, let me point out that the same flavor compounds that give green peppers and fresh roasted coffee their flavor also appear (in small quantities) in Cabernet Sauvignon. So to describe Cabernet in terms of green peppers is fine. The tongue can only taste the basic flavors of sourness or acidity, sweetness, bitterness and saltiness. Everything else we perceive as flavor is in fact smell. If you do not believe me, hold your nose, close your eyes and try to decipher red wine from white wine, or coffee from tea. There is no doubt that wine can create passionate comment, because the complexity and changing variety of flavors which wine offers

is equaled nowhere in the world of food and drink. And inside broad swathes of taste, there is a myriad of differences, tiny, increasingly subtle, yet measurable. Final note. A wine will taste different depending on, of course what you are eating, but also what you ate earlier, the weather outside, even who you are with at the time, each situation puts you in certain moods. So taste often!
David Delph passed away in Sarasota, FL while in the care of Tidewell Hospice on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 after a fierce multi-year long battle with COPD. He was born on November 1, 1935 in Indianapolis, IN on the kitchen table in a rented apartment on East 16th Street. David was the oldest son of Merle Addison Delph from Wilkinson, IN (died in 1978) and Josephine Cornelius Murphy from Kentland, IN (died in 2006). He attended IPS #70 and IPS #84 before graduating from Shortridge High School in 1954 in addition to spending four summers from 1950-53 as a cadet at Culver Military Academy. He studied at Indiana University in addition to Indiana Central and Butler University before being drafted into the United States Army Counter Intelligence Corps. At age 16 he went to work for the Delph family business, the MA Delph Company, working in their Hide Processing Plant and corporate headquarters located at 517 West Ray Street in Indianapolis. After losing an eminent domain proceeding the company was dissolved to make way for the expansion of Interstate 70 leading out to the Indianapolis International Airport. The Delph family moved from their Indianapolis home at 5500 Washington Boulevard to Carmel, IN in the summer of 1953, to a home that still stands just east of Keystone Avenue off of Main Street. Once honorably discharged from the Army and after dissolution of the family business, David was recruited and joined Iowa Beef Processors as a Vice President and assumed the position of President of its wholly owned subsidiary, the Denison Hide Company. David was a lifelong basketball fan, playing High School basketball at Shortridge and was intensely loyal to his Indiana Hoosiers. He is predeceased by both parents and his younger brother Thomas Ray Delph who died in 2002 from the same disease. David is survived by his younger brother Charles Eugene (Oshkosh, WI), four sons; Jamie (Cindy) of Buford, GA; Stephen of Carmel, IN; Mike (Beth) of Carmel, IN; and John (Becky) of Frankton, IN; in addition to ten grandchildren: Brittany, Courtney, Abby, Evelyn, Isaiah, Anna, David, Emma, Eliana, and Lilly and one great grandchild, Jordyn. Visitation will take place Friday, April 19th from 4-8 p.m. at Condo and Son Funeral Home located at 130 South Main Street, Wilkinson, IN 46186. Additional visitation will take place 9am-11am on Saturday April 20th followed by the funeral service at 11am. A private family burial with full military honors at the Delph family burial plot in McCray Cemetery will take place after the service. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Damien Center in Name of Stephen Delph, 26 North Arsenal Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46201.

The super bugs have landed Commentary by Carol Rossetti We have all heard the words “super bugs” but most of us do not know what they really mean or how they apply to us. MRSA, a staph infection that is resistant to the known prescription antibiotics, is a super bug that many of us have heard of and many have experienced. But you may not have heard of CREs, another strain of antiobiotic-resistant infections. Like MRSA, these super bugs originate mainly in hospitals, but both can be passed on by person-to-person contact. Forty-two states now have reported cases, and cases have doubled since July, and they kill at least 50 percent of those who become infected. If you are concerned about a hospital you may use or are considering using, you might want to go to the state website for Indiana, www.in.gov, and search for reported hospital infection rates. Just staying out of hospitals may not be enough since these infections can be passed from person-to-person. Also, if known antibiotics do not work, then what are you to do if you become infected or even to keep from getting infected? There are a number of natural remedies from God’s pharmacy that are effective, safe and inexpensive. These are things that you should keep in your natural medicine chest for immediate use.
Do you or someone you know suffer from
Silver shield with aquasol (not colloidal silver) is antiviral, antibacterial and antiyeast. It is available in both liquid and gel forms. It is patented and safe for all ages. The liquid can be taken as a preventative and more when infections strike. The gel offers four hours of protection on your hands and has no drying alcohol. It has been used in nursing homes to combat infections caused by bed sores when prescription antibiotics have no affect. It can be used inside the nose to stop viruses when they enter, so use it on your children before they head to school. Olive leaf, garlic, tea tree oil (get pure oil only). I highly recommend elderberry defense and elderberry chewable for children. Elderberry has antiviral properties and it contains D3, both to help boost our immunity. I keep lots of fresh garlic on hand because its uses are numerous. You can chop fresh garlic cloves into about 1/2 cup of olive oil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Strain it through cheese cloth and keep it refrigerated. It can be eaten, used on skin conditions, in the ears, on the gums.
Who was that? – Why is it difficult to remember names of everyone that you bump into? Simply, human beings recognize names as “arbitrary labels.” That means you need to make a meaningful connection to make sure that person is solidified in your memory. – www.webmd.com
Vein disease can affect anyone
Many people can develop varicose veins including men, athletes, pregnant women and those who are generally in good health. Active people are sometimes surprised to see bulging veins in their legs or to feel discomfort. As you may know, when we walk, our leg muscles pump blood back to the heart through one-way valves. In varicose-vein disease, those valves do not work properly and allow some of the blood to flow backward and pool in our legs, resulting in bulging veins and symptoms such as pain, swelling, tiredness or redness. Athletes sometimes experience aching or throbbing legs after a period of training or activity. If an individual has bulging veins or is suffering from discomfort, treatment may be required to relieve the symptoms. Diagnostic ultrasound vein mapping should be performed to determine whether there are abnormal areas of blood flow in the legs. If abnormal areas exist, they can be treated with endovenous laser treatment. 30 | April 16, 2013

Commentary by Jeffery Schoonover
Dizziness? Imbalance? Hearing Loss?
EVLT is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. Using EVLT, guided by ultrasound, a small laser fiber is inserted through the skin into the varicose vein. Laser energy is delivered inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. Once that vein is closed, the blood reroutes to other healthy veins. Most patients return to work within a day or two. EVLT has the benefit of offering the least disturbance to exercise or training regimens. Active and athletic people can get back to training in just a few days. If you experience discomfort while participating in events such as the Carmel Marathon, Race for the Cure or the We’ve Got Your Back Walk/Run, ask your physician if a screening for varicose vein disease would be appropriate.

Attempt to explore By Zeba Kokan, Youth President Riverview Hospital Medical Explorer Program “What would you attempt if you could not fail?” This quote always lingers on the back of my mind. I think to myself, what would I attempt if I could not fail? Would I try out for a team, I have no chance of making, make a bold statement trying to prove my value to this world. You see, these are what I would call childish goals. Now here are my big attempts: make a device that can let people experience one’s memories, without having the hassle of trying to explain certain situations. Start a new organization on an issue that I deeply believe in, or to simply write a column for my local newspaper. These above are just simple thoughts that a 13-year-old girl can come up with in a 30 min span of daydreaming. But what can I seriously do to have an effect in my world, community and life. From a very young age, I genuinely wanted to become a doctor; I decided this when I saw my brilliant grandma suffering from Alzheimer’s. At the start of my eighth-grade year, I was flipping through Current in Carmel when I saw the ad for the Medical Explorers program at Riverview Hospital in Noblesville. Medical Explorers is a program that allows students to learn and experience various medical careers in the hospital and the different department they can work in.

This would be a great opportunity to experience the medical environment. From the very first meeting, I was amazed and intrigued by the whole atmosphere of Riverview hospital. The program hosts’, Ms. Nancy Chance and Mr. Ron Wilson, warm and welcoming personality perked up everyone’s attention. They gave anecdote after anecdote about different experiences of past kids and where they ended up in life. The adventure of the Medical Explorers consists of touring: radiation oncology, OB, infant incubation facility, clinical labs, surgery rooms, oncology chemotherapy equipment, pharmacy, labor rooms and the mortuary. Every speaker who came in to talk about their profession had passion glowing from their face. I found the career talks very interesting and beneficial. At the end of the 2012-2013 program sessions, I was elected president for the next year’s Explorer Program (2013-2014). I’m so thankful to the Riverview program staff for their wonderful help. You never know what you can truly achieve unless you put your best foot forward and attempt to explore the wonders of this world, starting from your own backyard in Hamilton County.

Southern-style restaurant opens By Christian Sorrell • email@example.com Another Broken Egg Café, a new southernstyle breakfast and lunch restaurant, is now open at 96th and Meridian streets along Carmel’s southern border. Last week, the restaurant kicked off with two days of family and friends meals for members of the community. “I’m amazed at how our staff has been doing,” said Susan Sapp, one of Another Broken Egg Café’s four owners and a Fishers resident. “Feedback has been really great so far. We have been getting a lot of comments not only on the food but on the décor as well,” said Peggy Cseresznyes, another of the restaurant’s four owners. Another Broken Egg Café is a full service, sitdown breakfast and lunch location featuring a full bar, something that Cseresznyes pointed out as being unique among restaurants of this type. With larger, order-at-the-counter restaurants like Paradise Bakery & Café nearby, Another Broken Egg Café’s owners hope to attract those looking to eat breakfast and lunch in the area at a full-service restaurant. The menu differentiates the restaurant by providing options like biscuit beignets, shrimp and grits, Bananas Foster-style French toast and more.

Unique indoor swim school opens By Colleen Peregrin • firstname.lastname@example.org Goldfish Swim School, a unique facility directed at teaching children from ages 4 months to 12 years to swim, is scheduled to open today. Goldfish, 271 Merchants Square Dr., houses an indoor pool four-and-a-half-feet deep that is perfect for teaching children to swim, and the pool, as well as the air, is heated to 90 degrees to avoid the chill factor that so often strikes dread in the hearts of young swimmers. “We have a curriculum that we don’t deviate from. Our teachers go through 40 hours of training, and they have to follow our curriculum. So every child goes through the same curriculum until they pass through the level. Once they have graduated through the skill, they move on to the next,” said Jenny McCuiston, one of the founders of the Goldfish Swim School. “There are not a lot of facilities that do that. A lot of teachers are given leeway to teach their classes, and our teachers are not given leeway, because kids need repetition. They aren’t going to remember without repetition.” The sign up process is much like a gym membership. Participants can sign up for as long as they want. Therefore, the child is not rushed through lessons to try and get through the course in a certain amount of time but rather can graduate through the skills as quickly or as slowly as they need. “Goldfish offers children and families a com-

Since the facility is indoors,
kids can continue to practice and learn yearround until they are competent swimmers. The Goldfish Swim School also provides family swim. “Family swim is a big deal because we want them to come and have fun with it. We don’t want them to think it’s always just lesson-oriented,” McCuiston said. The Goldfish Swim School also is looking to employ young adults around the ages of 18 to 23 to teach swim lessons.

The Valley of the Kings on the west bank of the Nile is the home of King Tut’s tomb. (Photo by Don Knebel)
Tut’s tomb didn’t make the list Commentary by Don Knebel In about 1500 B.C., 1,000 years after construction of the famous pyramids of Giza, the Egyptians began burying their pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. The best known of the dozens of pharaohs entombed there was actually one of the least important, which ironically explains his current fame. The Valley of the Kings is on the west bank of the Nile River near the modern city of Luxor, called Thebes by ancient Egyptians. The site was apparently selected because of the large pyramid shaped rock overlooking the valley. The area’s relatively soft limestone allowed workers to dig steep shafts extending hundreds of feet to underground burial chambers enclosing a giant stone sarcophagus. Along all the walls and ceilings, artisans painted elaborate scenes of the pharaoh’s life and life with the gods. The pharaoh’s earthly possessions were buried with him for later use if, as expected, he survived that judgment. To prevent looting, as had happened at the pyramids, the entrances to the tombs were scattered around the valley and concealed behind tons of limestone. But the camouflage did not work and the tombs were systematically
raided as security lessened with Egypt’s declining resources in about 1100 BC. Tomb raiders checked off the pharaohs as they found each tomb and eventually concluded they had found them all. But they missed a pharaoh named Tut-ankhamen who had died at age 19 after a short reign and had apparently been left off the dead pharaohs lists. The discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1922 created a world-wide sensation. Today 3,500 items of gold and other rich materials found in his tomb are the primary attraction of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Unlike all the other pharaohs, King Tut’s mummified body is still in his tomb. The Valley of the Kings is open to the public and entry to the now well-lighted tombs is permitted on a rotating basis to protect the magnificent art from crowd damage. The small tomb of King Tut, undisturbed for 3,300 years, is a tribute to the benefits of obscurity. Don Knebel is a Zionsville resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

LIFESTYLE Grammar Guy
Laying or lying or Lay’s? Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question: “The most common grammatical error today, I feel, is the incorrect usage of ‘lay:’ people do not ‘lay’ out in the sun; I cannot go to my bedroom to ‘lay’ down; and murder victims are not ‘laying’ on the ground. In the first two examples, the correct verb is ‘lie,’ and the final example should have murder victims ‘lying’ on the ground. I can, however, ‘lay’ my books on a table and a hen can ‘lay’ eggs. I recommend an article on the correct usage of the verb ‘lie’ sometime soon because I hear it misused on TV and radio broadcasts and, incredibly, read these errors in print.” (Mrs. Theodore (Marcia) Esping) Answer: Well, it sounds like you’ve already got this rule down, but I’d be happy to lay it out for other readers. Let’s start off in the present tense. Things are fairly cut and dry here. “Lay” means to put or set an object down. Note the word “object” there. In the present, “lay” always requires an object: I lay my head down; you lay down the phone; we lay down our swords. To “lie” is to be or stay at rest in a horizontal position. Thanks, Merriam-Webster. It’s also a homonym to “lie,” to tell an untruth, which may be what gets some people confused. In the present, and all of its conjugations, “lie” requires no direct object: I lie down; the cat lies on the floor; you lie on the bed.
As we get into the past tense, though, things get a little trickier. In the past tense, “lay” becomes “laid,” and “lie” becomes… “lay.” It’s sadistic, I know. So, while yesterday you “laid” down your sword, the cat “lay” all day on the floor. “Lay” remains “laid” in the present participle (“It was only yesterday that we had laid down our swords.”) while “lie” becomes “lain” (“The cat had lain on the floor all day until I got home.”). The present participle of each verb may be the simplest transition of all: “lay” becomes “laying” and “lie” becomes “lying.” I am lying down for a nap. She is laying the phone down. Remember: “Laid” and “laying” always mean to set something down. “Lie,” “lain” and “lying” always mean to be at rest (or to set yourself down). Only “lay” can mean both. So when you think you need to use lay, ask yourself: Am I setting an object down, and am I speaking in the present tense? If the answer to both questions is “yes,” use “lay.” Otherwise, only use “lay” when an object is at rest (or setting itself to rest) in the past tense without a helping verb. And if you’re talking about potato chips, use “Lay’s” (although Doritos are better).

INSIDE & OUT Decorating
The economics of good design Commentary by Vicky Earley Each and every interior design project has a budget, and that budget has absolutely nothing to do with money. A harmonious space is a careful allocation of color, scale, proportion, balance, pattern and texture. The successful path to a well decorated room spends the “budget” thoughtfully. The quickest route to a DIY decorating disaster is to consider each element independently of the others. When making any selection, treat it as an allocation and ask yourself whether that is really where you want to spend your budget for that piece of the puzzle. The easiest part of the “budget” to blow is pattern. Consider a scenario where patterned flooring is selected before the other elements. Suddenly, patterns in textiles for furnishings are severely limited. This is fine if the flooring is going to be the focal point, such as with a fabulous area rug. It is a waste of budget if it is just an arbitrary selection and not the component that will make the room fabulous. Pattern can be used in abundance or sparingly, but it spends the budget the same. It sets the mood for the entire space and leads the way hand in hand with color. Color has a definite impact on the mood that you want to create. Crisp, bold colors tend to be
more modern while muted, subtle tones create a more traditional atmosphere. Texture is the backdrop for pattern and color. It provides subtle interest and can be repeated without drawing from the pattern. In addition, the following elements are a part of the design budget: • Scale and proportion are two design principles that go hand in hand, since both relate to size and shape. Proportion has to do with the ratio of one design element to another, while scale concerns itself with the size of one object as compared to another. • Rhythm is the repetition of shapes, color, pattern and texture.
• Balance can be symmetrical (identical items repeated on each side of a focal point), asymmetrical (less contrived but balanced based on visual weight and scale), or radial (elements are placed around a center point). Think carefully about how to use your allowance when decorating and consider whether an element is really worth the” investment.” After all, your budget is limited.

INSIDE & OUT Indoors
Consider: Secondary baths can make great first impressions Commentary by Larry Greene The design opportunities in secondary bathrooms are often overlooked in home remodeling. These homeowners looked at these spaces as a chance to have some fun. They bought this 12-year-old house six years ago and recently remodeled two bathrooms - a powder bath on the main level and a full bath in the basement. According to the homeowner, “When we bought the house, we knew we were going to remodel. The powder bath had a pedestal sink, which I do not like because there is no storage space! Because it is a powder bath, I felt like I had the freedom to play with it a little bit. There are many fun architectural details throughout the house, but it seems like the builder forgot the bathrooms.” The goal of the remodel was to add storage, update the functionality and put more personality into the baths. The designer stated, “The intent behind the design was to give the spaces a bit of wow-factor. The wood wall in the powder bath, done in Castle Comb Avon wood planks, definitely provides some pop. In the lower-level bath, we got rid of the beige and brought in different textures and colors to liven it up.” Powder Bath: “I wanted to make a statement in the powder bath. I was originally thinking of putting decorative tile up the accent wall, but the designer came up with the idea of the wood
planks,” said the homeowner. “My husband and I love lodges, but that look would not have blended with the rest of the house. The wood wall was a great alternative, and we love it. We ended up with a granite remnant for the vanity top, which was a nice cost saver. I wanted to do something different with the space, and I got it.” Full Bath: Installing a large, tiled shower fol-
lows current trends in bath remodeling. “The main reason behind remodeling the basement bathroom was to replace the builder-grade tub and shower unit,” said the homeowner. “We have them all over the house and plan to replace all of them. Also, we needed a vanity with more storage.” When you are taking on a remodeling project, remember to have a little fun too. Bringing
your personality into the mix can make the results more gratifying.
