The Future of Pain Care is Here!

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

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

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

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

(Medicare Accepted)

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

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

It is our position that while the means to communicate have expanded exponentially, the ability to communicate has declined by the same amount. Parents, children, politicians, citizens, bosses, employees and most other Americans agree that interaction is important. However, parents and children tend to “check in,” but spend precious little time talking to one another. The politician responds to a question from a reporter or citizen, but the answer often has nothing to do with the question! The employer directs his staff to send an e-mail rather than encouraging face-to-face discussion. Technology robs us of one of the most important elements of interpersonal communication, which includes the body language and expression of others. These gadgets can provide a shield that may lead to comments better left unsaid. In an age where the world is becoming more polarized and opinions more entrenched, the ability to express a clear statement is critical. Unfortunately, communication has become sound bites, tweets, openmics, truncated texts, and throwaway lines. As a nation, we cannot hope to resolve the important issues facing our country and world if we do not even talk to one another! Technology is a means to communicate, but it is NO substitute for thorough expression.

Paper ceiling

It is our position that the debt-ceiling debate must not be politicized. While we don’t advocate for its increase, we fear its inevitability. The problem stems from a lack of willingness to address matters like social security, Medicare or defense – we cannot avoid raising the debt ceiling without touching one (or all) of them. In the meantime, our economy must continue to function just as a typical household requires food. Bottom line, if a family needs groceries, it must use the credit card even as it seeks a long-term solution. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be addressing spending, just as the above illustrated household should address its own budget: but pointing to relatively small and highly politicized issues such as Planned Parenthood from either side is not productive. The obvious issues precipitated by the debt crisis and seemingly endless spending deserve better consideration than simply rage against or for tiny splinter issues. We’re thankful to an extent that the tea party movement has elevated the debate about debt to the forefront. It needs to be there. Now it’s time to get to work to discuss the major budgetary elements and drop the wrangling about decades-old federal program conflicts.

Stay the course with the top job in City Hall. That’s our advice to Carmel residents as the May 3 primary election draws closer. In the race for the opportunity to be the city’s chief executive, incumbent Mayor Jim Brainard is our choice over challengers John Accetturo and Marnin Spigelman. We appreciate some of the points raised by Accetturo and Spigelman regarding fiscal conservancy, but Carmel, in our opinion, couldn’t possibly be in better hands for the next four years. Other endorsements: Brian Poindexter for city judge (he deserves a full term), Paul Wonch in the Southwest District (he will set the standard in this new area), Eric Seidensticker in the Central District (his yen for debate is healthy and we view him as honest), Sue Finkam in the Northeast District (it’s time for a change and a fresh, focused perspective), Luci Snyder in the Southeast District (a fierce advocate for her constituents, although we like challenger Tom Kendall’s idea for a small-business incubator … as long as it would be privately funded, but there’s no guarantee there), and incumbents Kevin “Woody” Rider and Ron Carter (each is building a fine legacy and deserves to continue service) as at-large can-

Did we really need to go all the way to L.A.? COMMENTARY By Danielle WIlson My daughter and I just returned from a fourday trip to Los Angeles in celebration of her 10th birthday. She chose the location, she chose the activities, and she even helped to choose the hotels and restaurants. We had a grand time, but once we returned, I couldn’t help thinking how we probably could have enjoyed many of the same experiences without spending money out the wazoo and 22 hours in travel time. I’ve listed below the highlights of our adventure (according to her), in addition to some cheaper, local substitutes. 1. Sticking her feet in the Pacific Ocean. The White River, though not quite as large as the P.O., is only about 15 minutes from our house and probably warmer. Me likey. 2. Playing at Universal Studios. We go to Kings Island every year. True, they don’t have the original “Psycho” set or a car lot with Magnum’s Ferrari, but they make a darn good elephant ear and they have an Eiffel Tower. Top that, producers of King Kong 3D! 3. Spotting movie stars. What am I, chopped liver? Am I not a local celebrity? And I’ll actually give you an autograph, unlike one of Elle’s sorority sisters from “Legally Blond” or Mary Alice from “Desperate Housewives.” Not that we asked them for one or anything. That would have been rude, right? There they were, just trying to get some coffee and scones. I’m sure the last thing either of

them wanted was to engage in conversation with a drooling, awestruck Midwesterner. And I know they are only supporting actresses, but when two legit celebs (with imdb.com bios and everything!) order breakfast right in front of me, it’s amazing. And for my daughter, too, of course. 4. Flying on an airplane. When it comes right down to it, the only cool thing about traveling by plane is that you are soaring above the earth at an incredible rate while someone serves you Fresca and mini-ginger snaps. But really, is that so different than a juice box in the mini-van at 70 mph? Is it? 5. Getting a manicure. Asian Nails off 146th, $10, ‘nough said. 6. Shopping on Venice Beach boardwalk. Cheap stuff

minus the marijuana shops equals Forever 21 at Castleton. Not as much fun in terms of peoplewatching, clearly, but at least you won’t be accosted by a tat-covered street performer selling neon pink bobble-skulls. “Run, daughter, RUN!” 7. Ordering room service. I believe she does this every morning of the week, only it’s served on the patio, aka the kitchen counter, and usually does not include French toast. Still not a bad deal, all things considered. Fruit Loops made to order, no gratuity necessary. 8. Watching production of a television movie. My sisters and I film Christmas skits every single year. We use quality cell phones with video capabilities and film on location in the back yard. Best of all, we allow our adoring public to get up close and personal with the actresses and crew. Warner Bros wouldn’t even let us within 10 yards of their assistant gaffers! Accio binoculars! 9. Seeing the Hollywood sign from an open-aired bus on Mulholland. Can’t top this one. It’s pretty cool. 10. Spending time with mom. Like No. 9, this is hard to accomplish while staying in town. Brothers, Little Sister, and Daddy tend to get in the way of quality mother-daughter bonding. Which is why we took the trip in the first place – to commemorate her first decade of life, just the two of us. And you know what? It was worth every penny. Peace out.

Japanese to dedicate new tea house Current in Carmel Members of the Kawachinagano Rotary Club will be in Carmel this week to help assemble the newest addition to the Japanese Garden just south of City Hall. Kawachinagano is Carmel’s sister city, located in Japan. The current shelter will be transformed into an Azumaya-style Tea Gazebo as the next phase of the garden’s development, and also as a celebration of the Kawachinagano Rotary Club’s 50th anniversary. The updates and reconstruction will help add further amenities and traditional Japanese elements to the garden, which is a symbol of the cultural exchange between Carmel and Kawachinagano. The chapter of the Carmel Rotary with help from the Sister Cities program and city also helped bring the project together. The official dedication of the new tea gazebo will be May 2 at 10 a.m. in the Japanese Garden just south of City Hall and will include a Japanese tea ceremony and tea tasting afterwards.

Carmel students, athletes make giving back a habit COMMENTARY By Jeff Worrell There is much more to a Lady Greyhound softball player than just a bat and a softball. The 2011 team is off to a great start, clobbering the Panthers and soundly defeating Floyd Central and Castle in the Jasper Invitational. Everyone involved with the program has high hopes for this season, as the team marches towards the state tournament. But the Lady Greyhounds are also making a difference off the field. By taking advantage of a schedule with an unusual number of home games, this year’s softball team will also help score some wins for local charities. Last weekend, during the team’s spring invitational, its members kicked off their charitable season by collecting canned goods for the Carmel United Methodist Church food pantry. Food pantry volunteer Marty Hurst was thrilled to receive hundreds of pounds of food. “Donations rise during the holiday season, but begin to taper off during the spring and summer months,” Hurst said. “The need exists 12 months out of the year. The response from the tournament was tremendous.” Candy Jones helped manage the “Together We CAN” food drive. She made sure the visiting teams and their fans were included and knew to bring nonperishable items. But the team is not stopping there. Tonight the Hounds take on Lawrence North High School at Cherry Tree Softball Complex.

It is also Strike Out Cancer night. Carmel High School is participating in a national program sponsored by the American Cancer Society to raise funds to promote awareness and fight cancer. On May 2, Cherry Tree Softball Complex will also host Best Buddies night. Best Buddies is the organization dedicated to creating one-toone friendships for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Speaking of philanthropy in the Carmel Clay School System, did you hear about the kids at Orchard Park Elementary? The Student council held a bracelet sale to benefit the Red Cross Tsunami Relief Fund. Not only did they raise awareness and learn some essential lessons from the experience, they sent $1,100 dollars to Japan. And, the Forest Dale Elementary student council organized Chew-Chew Day, which allowed every student with an extra $1 to chew gum IN SCHOOL. Best dollar they ever spent, and they sent $450 to the Humane Society. College Wood Elementary raised $7,859.61 for the American Heart Association by jumping rope and shooting hoops. The good in our schools is not just confirmed by grades, but by the behavior of our students outside the classroom.

High-school team finds the meaning of life by connecting dots A team of high-school girls has captured the idea behind great success – by connecting the dots By Lindsay Eckert Current in Carmel Carmel High School Winter Guard is bringing home the world championship trophy for their performance of Stay Foolish, Stay Hungry. Their methods are hardly foolish, and they are surrounded by too many supportive families to ever have to go hungry. But their interpretation of the show was the driving force in achieving their goal, and in teaching others the message through their movements. A united team of 34 girls backed by families making costumes, nursing injuries and cheering them through struggles went into last week’s world finals undefeated. They’d been there three times before, but this year they had something different. They had a pattern of what life is about, and they were there to express it through music and artful athleticism. They had perfected their performance with practice and successful performances, but the true perfection came from highschool girls, most not even 18, already understanding life while remembering it is something we won’t have one day. Their inspiration came from Steve Jobs’ commencement speech titled “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish” at Stanford University. The beginning of his speech said, “Life is about finding how the dots connect, trusting they will connect and understanding you can only see their connection by looking backward.” He said he was only there to tell three stories about love, loss and death. Like many, he had experienced all three by age 40, and it took that to learn how the dots in his life were connected. A group of 15-18 year olds’ united passion for winter guard and trust in one another has brought out an old soul in all of them, making a group of teens wise beyond their years and more grateful for their shared experiences and ambitious teamwork than a trophy. Lisa Dye’s freshman daughter is on the team and she says the leadership and commitment the girls have for each other has made a tremendous impact on her daughter. “When you’re on a team or in a family, you’re reminded there’s something bigger than yourself and with that comes opportunities to be accountable to yourself and to other people,” Dye said. “My daughter joined the team as a little girl and now, in just one year, she’s matured into a young woman.” Her 15-year-old daughter, Emily says she sees life with different eyes since her very first performance with the team.

2011 CARMEL High School COLOR GUARD AUDITIONS May 3rd (Tuesday) 6:00-8:30pm AND May 5th (Thursday) 6:00-8:30pm **Meeting by the band room hallway for registration, come by the circle drive in the front of the school by the flag pole and enter through those doors. Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. outside of band room area. ** NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY The award winning and 2011 WGI World Champion color guard is holding auditions for its 2011-2012 upcoming season. The color guard twirls flags, rifles, sabres and dances to music with the Carmel High School marching band during the fall and Winter Guard season. The CHS Color Guard will also be performing in the 2011 Macy’s Day Parade in NYC this Thanksgiving!! If you are interested in making lots of new friends, performing, dancing, gymnastics, and traveling around the country to compete in this elite performing group of young ladies, the Carmel Color Guard is for you!! All auditionees must be attending CHS in the fall. No experience is necessary – we will teach you everything you need to know! You’ll never know if you don’t try!

“I was nervous for the first one and it didn’t go great; there were things I could’ve done better, but the older members were encouraging us throughout our entire performance, they gave us the chance to believe in ourselves,” Emily said. Emily said when she first started she only knew two people on the team, and she was still trying to learn how to budget her time with her family, homework and intense practices. But it was the older girls’ dedication to believing in her that made her not give up. “We’d go through hard times while being exhausted from the intense training; sometimes it felt like it wasn’t going anywhere,” Emily said. “Now, to have the chance to look back and see what we did and how rewarding it is to see this kind of ending is a really cool feeling. It has really taught me when you’re working hard with a group people we can do anything together and that makes us want to work even harder now.”

Current in Carmel

At just 15, she and the rest of the team see deeper than the surface shimmer of their world championship trophy. Like any winning team, they have a sense of pride seeing Carmel High School next to world champions, but when one of them sees their reflection in their trophy’s golden sheen, they see a team that was able to connect the dots. They see 34 girls capable of embracing each others’ pasts while finding the dots in all of their lives. After, they strapped on their all black costumes with one white line to symbolize the line that connects each member’s dots so audiences can see how a team trusting each other can lead to finding the true pattern of life. Like Steve Jobs said, it’s all about looking backward to see your dots so you can move forward to connect them. One of the team’s youngest members thought the same way when she held the trophy: “Having the chance to look back and see what we came from is what made winning amazing,” Emily said.

READEr’S VIEWS Trash issue needs to happen Editor: Rather than moving the city-wide trash and recycling ordinance out of his Public Safety Committee on April 11 so that the full City Council could vote on that measure at our meeting on April 18, as I had urged, Joe Griffiths, simply moved the matter on to Luci Snyder’s Finance Committee. This rather unprecedented trick prevented a vote on this very important matter prior to the Primary Election. The move by Griffiths and Snyder may also keep this ordinance from being voted on before the bid, which has now been extended once by Republic, expires in June. That bid was provided before the gas prices skyrocketed. Many residents have asked me what is going on. Frankly, I have not been able to tell them. Kevin Rider and I were fully prepared to vote for the measure on the 18th because we feel it is right for the Community. The staff of Carmel Utilities and the management of Republic, the successful low bidder, answered all of our questions about this ordinance and the benefits this will bring to our citizens long ago. The only thing I can tell you is that it appears Luci Snyder, Rick Sharp, Eric Seidensticker, John Acetturro and Joe Griffiths are not in favor of the ordinance and wanted to get past the election to vote it down. On the other hand, they may be in favor of this, but did not want to tell their small group of core constituents this, many of whom are not in favor of city wide trash and recycling, by standing up and voting for the measure in a public meeting. As I have maintained all along, this is important enough to have been voted on before our residents go to the polls on May 3. Mrs. Snyder has put forward her reasons for not moving this to a vote now. And I would tell you that I don’t believe the citizens are interested in either of the excuses that Mrs. Snyder has offered. The first is that, just like the Keystone project, she needs to have complete oversight on this so that the finances of the city can be protected.

She then points to how much the majority on this Council did to protect the citizens on that project. (And Al Gore invented the web.) Frankly I can tell you that not one thing on the Keystone Project was changed because of Mrs. Snyder and Mr. Sharp. There simply was not a change in scope that is attributable to this Council majority, except for the deletion of the landscaping … a safety feature on all our roundabouts … not just an aesthetic feature. The huge amounts of money that Mrs. Snyder speaks of in regards to monetary savings made by this Council on your behalf were the result of the economy and the lowering of construction and commodities prices, not the work of Mrs. Snyder. In reality, the only thing that she and Rick Sharp did was to spend $60,000 in taxpayer money on a consulting firm that told us the Engineering Department was doing things properly. Her track record for safeguarding the City’s finances is not supported by fact. It is simply supported by her rhetoric. The second excuse for not moving this is that Mrs. Snyder feels there is no need to hurry this along, as if the nearly three months this has been in Committee is not enough time for any good business person to have gotten all their questions and concerns handled. She says, “There is not trash piling up in the streets. Garbage is being picked up. So why do we have to rush into this?” I suppose what she is saying is that we will have to wait to get city wide trash pickup until that is the case … until trash is overflowing in the streets. That is not leadership. That is politics. I would ask all of you to understand that Woody and I support this. And that, apparently, those who are holding this in committee do not support the program that has been carefully put together, bid and negotiated by our Utilities Department for over a year. I ask that you take this into consideration as you decide for whom you are going to vote on May 3rd. Ron Carter City Council, At-Large

“Are You a Vocal Superstar?” by Cindy Roberts-Greiner

The CarmelFest Has Talent third annual vocal competition encourages gifted singers to reach for the stars and realize their dreams of performing live on stage during the CarmelFest Independence Day Celebration. If you have a great singing voice – it’s time to share your gift with an enthusiastic audience! Applications from undiscovered, talented vocalists in Indiana are being accepted at www.CarmelFestHasTalent.com. Singers will compete in one of three categories: the first group will include ages 12 years and younger, second group will consist of ages 13 through 17 and third group will include soloists ages 18 and over. According to event chairperson, Daris Reno Blickman, “Our area has an abundance of exceptionally talented vocalists.” Auditions conducted in May will narrow the field of contestants selecting up to 10 top performers in each age category. These semi-finalists will perform on the gazebo main stage July 3rd. Judges will determine the top three contestants per age category to “sing their hearts out” during the CarmelFest Has Talent competition finals on July 4th. Cash prizes and trophies will be awarded to the first, second and third place. As an added perk – the nine vocalists performing in the final competition will ride in the “St.Vincent Health July 4th Parade at CarmelFest” and they will be offered a chance to sing at the Roundtrippers - Continental Amateur Baseball Association World Series event. Months of planning have gone into organizing CarmelFest Has Talent for the auditions, semi-finals and finals. The dedicated team of volunteers includes Daris RenoBlickman who has served as the event chairperson for 3 years, co-chair Bernie Szuhaj who is part owner of the Second Story Playhouse and Simply Sweet Shoppe in Carmel, and committee member Gena Hout who is credited with suggesting the talent competition concept. All the committee members are focused on presenting a top quality, high energy performance for the community at CarmelFest in July.

Griffiths’ use of campaign funds in question By Margaret Sutherlin Current in Carmel Carmel City Council Northeast District candidate Joe Griffiths soon may have to answer questions regarding expenditures reported on his most recently filed campaign finance report. The pre-primary election report filed with the Hamilton County Election Division on April 15 indicated several examples of what potentially could be construed as personal expenses having been paid with campaign contributions. According to state law, campaign contributions must be used to “defray any expense reasonably related to the person’s or committee’s a) campaign for federal, state, legislative or local office; b) continuing political activity; c) activity related to service in an elected office” or to make contributions to other candidate committees. The code also spells out clearly: “Money received by a candidate or committee as a contribution may not be used for primarily personal purposes by the candidate.” Whether Griffiths followed state law could be up to the election board. Griffiths recently moved from his Double Eagle Drive home to a new residence on Simplicity Parkway in the Legacy development off East146th Street. According to city records, the address on Simplicity Parkway is his current home address. It is not uncommon for candidates to report residential addresses as their political committee headquarters. Mayor Jim Brainard, council member Luci Snyder and at-large candidate Wayne

Wilson each reported a home addresses as the political committee address but did not deduct personal living expenses such as rent or electric bills. In a review of Griffiths’ report, contributions were used to pay bills to Duke Energy and Legacy Towns & Flats, citing campaign expenses each time. Griffiths in 2011 paid January through April rent to Legacy Towns & Flats at $776.49 per month, each time citing “headquarters rental.” He also stated he paid Duke Energy in February, March and April for “headquarters electricity” and included two payments to Verizon Wireless for “call banks.” Repeated attempts to communicate with Griffiths in person, by phone and by e-mail were unsuccessful. Kathy Richardson, head of Hamilton County Elections, said the Indiana law is clear that campaign money cannot be used to pay for personal expenses. “If the election board considers this there are two questions to be considered for a decision to be made: whether this was for a primarily personal purpose and if they were expenses reasonably related to the campaign.” There was an advisory opinion from 2001 by the Indiana Election Commission that allows candidates to receive a salary from their campaign contributions, but Griffiths did not allocate himself a salary and is currently self-employed and the president of Griff Tech and Sons LLC, which as of Friday was registered with the Secretary of State. Sue Finkam and John Koven are running against Griffiths in the May 3 Republican primary.

At-large council candidates discuss economic impacts By Lindsay Exkert Current in Carmel As the voting time approaches, four at-large council candidates are talking about what the city needs and how they can make it happen. Ron Carter and Kevin Rider Rider are both Republican incumbents running to hold their seat in the council against Wayne Wilson, a former Council member, and Ron Houck, who is in the science and technology industry. Many voters ask questions about how candidates will move forward from the state of the nation’s economy. Ron Carter says the city has sustained the nation’s economy. “Citizens’ property taxes have not increased since I have been in office,” Carter said. “Their utility rates are among the lowest in the state, including the water rates, which are 40 percent lower than the city of Indianapolis.” Kevin Rider says Carmel’s economy hasn’t been impacted by the economy like other cities. “Even with this economy, Carmel is growing

when other cities are falling behind,” he said. “I look to continue making Carmel grow in a responsible way.” Wayne Wilson says citizens need to be and stay informed to achieve financial goals for the Carter city. “I’ll work to eliminate the debate on city finances and transparency,” he said. “Clear and precise communication and documentation between the administration, City Council, and the public will make it possible for all to understand the accurate state of city finances and obligations.” Ron Houck says to move forward in this economy the city needs to balance building new business while consciously keeping check on existing businesses. “Developing business should be done in a way that doesn’t promote unfair advantages to new businesses at the expense of existing businesses in our community,” Houck said. “Programs to improve business must be equitable and cost-effective for new and existing businesses for financial success.”

Apostrophes change meanings GRAMMAR LESSON By Brandie Bohney My family and I recently visited my in-laws, who live three hours away near some outlet malls. A visit to Grandma and Grandpa B’s house always includes a trip to the outlets. On this trip, the local pizza place (located within the mall) had put up large advertisements at every end and corner of the three large blocks of buildings. Each ad featured an image of pizza with the restaurant’s name and the enormous headline, “LETS EAT.” Lets? Without an apostrophe? Seriously? Let’s is a contraction for let us. The contraction is very common, probably much more so than the not-contracted, two-word version. It’s a common way to start an imperative statement suggesting a future course of action. Let only has two definitions as a noun (and as used on the ads, lets is a plural noun). One meaning is used primarily in law and is defined as an impediment or obstruction; the other meaning is used in tennis or squash and is “a minor infringement or obstruction of the ball, requiring a point to be replayed.” So the signs, while intending something wholly different, truly said that impediments and obstructions eat. Instead of the imperative command, “Let’s eat,” the sign simply made a statement: “Lets eat.” What a difference the apostrophe makes.

As if that apostrophe mistake weren’t enough, on the drive home, barely five minutes on the highway, we saw another sign with a missing apostrophe. This time, it was an enormous billboard for Gangsters Grill. And I was obligated by the forces of grammar to ask, “Do gangsters really grill?” This time the missing apostrophe was for possession rather than a contraction, but the restaurant name becomes a declaration without the apostrophe showing possession of the grill. Either Gangster’s Grill or Gangsters’ Grill would be correct, depending on whether it was one or more gangsters who are purported to own the grill. The point is even simple punctuation matters. A single missing or misplaced apostrophe can completely change the meaning of a sentence or title. Another point: Printing companies do not always (or maybe even usually) employ copy editors. Make sure what you’re putting into print for the public is correct. ••• Want more grammar? Join the Grammar Therapy class on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. in room 100A at Carmel Lutheran Church. This Thursday’s topic is “Words That Aren’t.” Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher.

Fifth grade students at Prairie Trace hide under their desks.

Students participate in ShakeOut earthquake drill Current in Carmel Students across Carmel Clay Schools ducked under their desks and covered their heads to learn about earthquake safety this week during the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut. While Indiana may not be a hot bed of seismic activity, the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone and major fault line at the nearby New Madrid Seismic Zone means Indiana is not immune from the occasional earthquake and the potential for a much more serious earthquake in the future.

Prairie Trace Elementary fifth grader Jessy Voris said that the drill was good practice for her and her peers. “It’s good because we know what to do now,” Voris said. “What happened in Japan was a very bad thing, and if we hadn’t practiced we wouldn’t have been able to protect ourselves.” The ShakeOut drill was held across schools and businesses in Indiana and the Midwest to encourage earthquake preparedness and awareness.

Paul Hansen as Amos Hart What are you most looking forward to with this production “Chicago”? I admire my fellow cast members and have wanted to work with several of them for a while. Holly Stults and I have known each other and were hoping to find a show we were both right for, and along came ‘Chicago.’ I’m also excited to be part of ATI’s first show at Carmel’s Performing Arts Center. Honestly, as a trained professional dancer, it feels strange to be a non-dancer in an amazing dance show, but I am thrilled because Amos is a character actor’s dream role … and I get to sing “Mr. Cellophane!” Vickie Klosky as Mona, a Merry Murderesses Are there any characteristics of your character you have identified with? I am trying to connect with Mona’s ability to be duped by a guy. She lets this guy go out every night without her.

Following CHICAGO I would never let that happen; just ask my husband! I do connect with Mona’s romantic side. She is taken with the artistic side of her guy. Why else would you put up with his behavior? Sally Scharbrough as Annie, a Merry Murderess What are you most looking forward to with this production Chicago? I have always loved Bob Fosse’s style of choreography, so getting to do a show in that style is wonderful! This is one of those shows that are a dream come true for dancers, because of the legendary style of the dances. The dancing isn’t easy but it has been really fun working on mastering the Fosse style.

Local artist jumps from jewelry to fiber sculpture By Lauren Burdick Current in Carmel On April 29 from 5:30-10:30 p.m. and April 30 from 2-7 p.m., Wendy Franklin, fiber sculptor, along with other artists, will be presenting her work in the Stutz Building downtown as part of the Stutz Artists Open House. For Franklin, this show represents a culmination of her eight years in the art world, although fiber was not always her medium of choice. “For the last three years, I worked in silver jewelry,” Franklin said. “When I started working more and more into wool, I just transitioned into (fiber sculpture). I really enjoyed that side of things.” Franklin said she did research at local art shows before making the leap from jewelry to fiber sculpture. In conjunction with changing art mediums, Franklin changed locations, from working out of her Carmel home to having a studio in the Stutz Building in Indianapolis. This move, she said, positively impacted her work. “I went into the Stutz building years ago, and three steps into the building I thought, ‘this is where I belong,’” she said. “I love the building. It’s got great history and character, and there are about 50 or 60 other art studios there, so you’re

surrounded by artists.” In addition to being surrounded by other artists, a studio in the Stutz Building, according to Franklin, gave her access to much more space than her house, as the process creates large pieces of art and can be wet and messy. Franklin’s work in fiber sculpture also deviates from typical fiber art. “People do use (wool) for wearables a lot, but not a lot for interior design work. It’s more popular in Europe than it is here,” she said. Franklin’s pieces can be hung as wall art, and she creates sizes up to seven feet tall. Smaller pieces, she said, can be framed and hung like a painting. In the future, Franklin hopes to see her art in locations where it can be viewed by large numbers of people. “The direction I’m trying to move in more is bigger installations,” she said. “I’ve done street shows, and I’ve been out there in the public in that way, and now I’d be really thrilled if people went into a hotel and saw (a sculpture) hanging behind a desk in the lobby.” Admission for the 2011 Stutz Open House is $12 for each day or $8 on April 30 with a ticket stub from April 29. Information on the open house is available at stutzartists.com.

COMMENTARY By Vicky Earley Layers and layers of alabaster, vanilla, ivory and cream might sound a bit Spartan, but they really can be serene and beautiful with just a bit of planning. Before you grab a gallon of white paint, keep in mind it isn’t just about white wall. Remember that word “planning”? No one likes to hear it, but it really is the key to success. The first step is to identify an inspiration piece of furniture. The style of this piece will set the mood of the room which could be urban, chic, glamorous or romantic … the piece will dictate the tenor of the room. Layer the room with additional pieces of furniture that are a slightly different shade of white. This might be as simple as painting pieces you already own. Keep the paint chips with you when shopping. The variables in the tones is so slight, it really is helpful to have the chips hand for comparison. Textiles and linens in white can create the next layer by introducing a soft and pure feel to the room. Chandeliers, lamps and accessories add a variety of sheen and texture to the layer upon layer of shades of white. Doors and window moldings should be painted white, while window treatments should be pale cream or white and sheer. When natural light is introduced to a white room, it has a magical way of dancing around and creating warmth.

The all-white room is exceptional when it is paired with wood flooring. Light colors push the walls away and make the room feel larger, while the wood anchors the space and ensures the room feels warm and welcoming. Shadows that would be imperceptible in any other room become a design factor in an all-white room. Victorian furniture painted white will show detail never noticed when it was in its original dark state, as shadows will highlight carvings. The all-white room is a study in the design elements of color, texture, scale and shape, so carefully select elements with this in mind. For a bit of variety, the use of just one bold color in this bed of pure white can create a different look altogether. The eye will be drawn to the pops of bold color, so place the elements so that the eye is carefully drawn around the room. When you are ready to paint furniture and walls, many paint stores have decks that feature just tones of white. As always, look at the undertones and consider whether a chip is cool or warm. Warm tones will work in a more elegant setting, while cool tones can work well in a contemporary space. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel.

Splash-Proof

In Spanish rosa means rose, and when we think of a rose we typically think of a bright, deep red. But we need not do so any more, as designer Carlos Campos has brought to us a new “vintage” color. Not only is it perfect for summer, but also timeless for any other season you wear it! This new color, an aged light pink, will give your wardrobe the lightness our summer pieces need, and yet the softness a sophisticated woman prefers. Pair this color with an off white cream or a bright yellow, or you can never go wrong with a light creamy khaki as a compliment. Try something new!

RELAX!

Each spring, our worries of staying dry and warm sometimes trumps our whimsy for fashion. Now, though, instead of worrying about either we can step out and wave the rain hello. Many fashion designers are incorporating water-resistant materials that allow us to BOTH look our best and stay splash free. Isora water-resistant jeans come straight from Japan to our closets in the Midwest. Pair them with the new Madison hooded khaki jacket and you’ll be ready to take on the rain! Let us help you with your look shining from beneath! More fun than a spring clean!!

Bright and cool When picking colors for your summer wardrobe… feed your need to escape for travel to an exotic location with a culture full of different colors! Colors such as honeysuckle, coral rose, beeswax are being paired with a cool silver peony, deep russet, and silver cloud; and these combinations let us feel alive and vigorous. Designers were inspired to combine these hues from their own hankerings to get away to these same places and cultures. So go ahead…pick up something bright, pair it with another cool color, roll your windows down, and turn the music up… because summer will be here soon and it’s time to celebrate!

Younger looking skin, quick treatment COMMENTARY By Dr. Jodie Harper & Dr. Angela Corea So, the sun is finally starting to shine … and it is shining right on your face. You notice a few more lines, a little less lift, and more texture issues than you had last year. While there are several treatment options, many require a few days of “social” downtime that many patients are not able to accommodate in their busy schedules. These more aggressive treatments are also typically not safe on darker skin types. Laser Genesis can be the answer. It is an excellent option for people looking for zerodowntime skin rejuvenation. These lasers are noninvasive, comfortable and scientifically proven to produce new collagen. This new collagen, along with remodeling of existing collagen, will result in smoother skin texture and diminished fine lines and wrinkles. Genesis can also reduce the number and size of pores, plump the skin, reduce redness and soften scars. This quick treatment feels like a flush of warmth over the skin similar to lying in the sun, the very thing you are trying to avoid! Patients get their fix of the sun while doing something beneficial for their skin. After just one or two treatments, skin will have a refreshed, youthful glow. After a series of treatments, notable results

The phrase “working mother” is redundant. ~ Jane Sellman

are achieved. Genesis may be performed on any skin color, during any season of the year. There is no recovery time, but sunscreen is always essential. If necessary, makeup can be reapplied after the treatment, so patients can return back to work … a true lunchtime laser facial. Genesis is most commonly used on the face, but can also safely be performed on the neck and upper chest and other areas of concern. Genesis benefits include … • No downtime • Comfortable, non-invasive • Safe on ANY skin color, ANY time of year • Results in skin rejuvenation: Shrinks pores, smoothes skin texture, softens scars, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, tightens skin, reduces redness Check with a qualified skincare professional soon to see if a non-invasive laser treatment would be right for you this spring. Dr. Jodie R. Harper is board-certified in internal medicine, geriatrics and wound care. Dr. Angela Corea is board certified in internal medicine. They are the medical directors at ClarityMD.

You can substantially increase your returns by cutting these tax losses, easily done by utilizing tax-advantaged accounts for retirement, college and health care. If you’re investing entirely through 401(k) s, IRAs, and 529s, just maximize taxdeferred savings whether tax rates are high or low.

COMMENTARY By David Cain I was traveling this week, in Atlanta and then Moline. As I prepared to depart sunny Atlanta and head off to cold Moline, I routinely rushed through security and to the gate only to be greeted by an all too common flight delay. This delay, as I hadn’t suspected, wasn’t caused by the storms hovering over the Midwest, but instead it was announced over the two plus hours I waited as a “maintenance delay”. Maintenance delays don’t inspire confidence in anyone I’d suspect. But, as a clutching flyer, I really don’t like the sound of it. It’s also disheartening to hear them announced in fifteenminute intervals. Seriously, take your time! I envision a mechanic burrowed up in the plane yelling back to an impatient attendant, “Still not done.” And them shouting back, “Hurry up, everyone’s waiting!” Not a visual that inspires confidence. Two hours and thirty minutes later, we’re on our way. Flying along quietly when the Captain firmly states, “We’ll be going through some turbulence for a while, flight attendants take your seats.” Great, now we’ve got a recently repaired plane and we’re going to test it against Mother Nature. Dark clouds above and dark clouds below, our little air ship rocked along as the pilot fought to

keep it level. A sickening feeling for me, I started talking to the person next to me to try and calm down. I’d say it was a random conversation except it began like this, “Why doesn’t this bother you?” The man was calmly reading a book next to me. He said, “I’m a pilot.” I started to think about my anxiety. I don’t get nervous when I’m a passenger in a car. Then I realized I can drive a car and I understand how cars work. In a plane, I have no control and I don’t understand flying. I’ve found from experience that communication is the best treatment for anxiety and I realized each time the pilot told me what was happening, I felt better. While I jostled with a magazine to try and read something to easy my jitters, I opened to a page that had a quote cited from John Wooden, “Take care of what you can take care of and the rest will take care of itself.” Funny I’d open to that. After thirty minutes that seemed like a day, I relaxed as the orange sun peaked through as we outpaced the storm. The lesson for me is good communication can always reduce the anxiety of your customer. And, helping them better understand and feel even a little in control will make things better from the start. Great thing about people, we can talk to each other if we choose and that can help us take care of the things we can take care of or at least understand what those things are.

Tips for new iPad users TECHNOLOGY By Gary Hubbard For those new to the tablet format, the first couple of months is a whirlwind of “aha’s”! From a basics standpoint, be sure you sync your iPad with iTunes on a regular basis for two reasons: backup and updates. Another key security tip is to activate the “Passcode Lock” and Auto-Lock (under Settings/General) so in the event your iPad gets lost or stolen, your data isn’t easily accessed by whoever has their hands on it. I would also highly recommend that you install the “Find My iPad” app so you can track, lock or wipe it should it ever go missing. If you take a lot of pictures with a digital camera, get the iPad camera kit for easy transfers of your photos. The best part of owning an iPad is apps, so here are my suggestions for new iPad owners: Flipboard: This app is one of my all-time favorites because it consolidates social media and news feeds into a simple interface that looks like a newspaper. A simple flick of the finger will

www.youarecurrent.com

turn the page, and feeds like Twitter and Facebook come to life with pictures and a brief synopsis of each post so you don’t have to click anything to get the gist of what’s been posted. Zinio: This app turns your iPad into the world’s largest newsstand by giving you access to virtually every magazine known to man. Samples can be viewed for free and subscriptions will simply automagically get loaded as they are released! I really love how you can click on articles in Zinio and it will create a text synopsis that can be easily e-mailed to others. PressReader: If you’re a newspaper junkie, you’ll have access to more than 1,800 newspapers around the world on either a pay-as-yougo (99 cents per download) or subscription ($29.95 per month), if you want access to all of them. Overdrive: If you love to read books and want remote access to your public library (or 13,000 others), this app is it!  (You can also download audiobooks.)

Pandora: Music lovers have likely already set up an account at the Pandora Web site, so this app allows you to extend your stations to your iPad. Just make sure you are on a WiFi connection when you stream the music so you don’t max out your data plan. Remote: Since you have an iPad, you have to use iTunes, so why not add the ability to control iTunes from you iPad! This is particularly handy if you patch the audio output from your computer into your home stereo system. Friendly Facebook: Facebook users who own an iPad have had to settle for the official Facebook app made for the iPhone stretched out to fit the extra space on the iPad. Friendly Facebook not only takes advantage of the additional real estate, it gives you more customization than the iPhone app. Photoshop Express: This free image-editing app is powerful but easy to use and a no-brainer for anyone who loads pictures on their iPad. It’s also a quick way to edit images before uploading them to Facebook or other social sharing sites. Hope this helps you better enjoy your iPad.

A cause for paws RELATIONSHIPS By Rachel Noble My daughter and I have started a tradition of heading into Petco on Saturdays to visit the “Pals for Paws” adoptive dogs. They’re so adorable, and it’s hard for us to not want to give every one of them a home! I got to thinking about what great companions animals can be for us singles. It’s such a win-win situation for the pets who need a loving home and for us singles who need someone to give love to. Getting our mind off of our troubles by giving back or by, say, taking care of a pet who needs a home, is a great way to boost our morale and, frankly, to keep us from dreading coming home to an empty space. The other day I started talking to Mary Ellen Wilborn, who I greatly admire – this woman and her kids care for homeless animals just as if they were their own. And when I heard her story, I had to share it with you, dear friends. Mary Ellen went through a divorce and found that she needed a hobby or something to get her mind off of her tough situation. So she decided to take in a pet … or two … or three. Pretty soon, she enlisted the help of one of her friends, who was also single, and together these gals are making a difference, not only in these animal’s

lives, but also in the lives of their children. These kids are taught responsibility by caring for the dogs they’re fostering, and there is not a dull moment in their homes as they care for these adorable pets. This act of kindness has brought joy to these once “broken” homes and has caused these families to focus on something greater than their own problems. I wasn’t asked by these ladies to promote their good cause, but I couldn’t help but do so when I realized what a great idea it is for all of us singles out there. Whether it’s giving back to our community by donating our time and resources to charity or by offering our homes to a stray pet, I believe we singles can make a difference while also improving our quality of life. If you’d like to meet Mary Ellen and some of her precious adopted pets, feel free to visit her at Petco in the Merchant Square Plaza on Saturdays from 12-3 p.m. Perhaps I’ll see you there too!

Of Denials, thorns and truth SPIRTUALITY By Bob Walter Peter famously denies Christ three times (Matthew 26:69-75) in the pre-dawn hours of Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified. Paul suffers a “thorn” in his flesh (2 Corinthians 12:7), described as a “messenger of Satan” to prevent Paul’s conceit in possessing the great revelations of Christ with which he is entrusted. Whether by denials or thorns, don’t we all encounter temptations to fashion our own truths about God and ourselves despite the Bible’s plain instruction, revelation and truth of the primacy of Jesus Christ in our overall world and individual lives? Every day we witness modern culture’s continuing academic, legal, social and scientific broadsides on all things God, yet often it is from within the Christian community that the most disturbing and direct assaults on Jesus Christ emanate. Here’s a huge church that doesn’t mention Christ. There’s a preacher who won’t preach against sin. Over on the bestseller list is a book saying Hell won’t happen. Denials and thorns; Satan loves to see man worship at the altar of self-importance. The danger in all this is not to God the Father, Christ the Son or the Holy Spirit. The danger is to us, to people, to anyone led astray from the truth of Jesus Christ by the fuzzy theology

Soft-filtered water ... not a hard decision

of don’t-worry-be-happy pop-culture doctrines. To be clear, I don’t think Hell is a doctrine. The Bible tells me Hell is a real place, no matter how many feel-good contemporary “Christian” preachers, writers and churches deny it. In these denials is Satan’s effort to whitewash the blood of Christ away from us. Whether we are planted in good spiritual soil or not, we all suffer the thorns of life’s challenges and worldly temptations with every breath we take. I love God, trust Jesus, and pray with the Holy Spirit not because I fear Hell, but because of the autonomy of love – God’s gift of freedom and truth embodied in Jesus Christ. Even amid my own self-interested denials and worldly thorns, that is what my head, heart, trusted Christian mentors and Bible all lead me to do. If we are led by any church, any book, any one or any thing that denies Hell, minimizes sin, does not challenge the wretchedness of our sin and tells us Christ isn’t Who the Bible says He is, well, then we had better be warned and take a hard look at who is holding the leash.

REMODELING By David Decker A high-function home kitchen is all about cooking, convenience and camaraderie. Bob Drollinger, a member of our staff, has been designing high-end and high-function kitchens in the northern Indianapolis area for 20 years. He knows the most important element in a unique home kitchen improvement is listening to the person who will be doing the cooking. “We don’t push anything on the homeowner,” Bob says. “A person who cooks will have plenty of thoughts on what they want their kitchen to do. Our job is to facilitate those desires, and occasionally help the homeowner steer clear of trouble.” A home built 10, 20 or 30 years ago, like so many in Hamilton County, generally requires some design creativity to truly modernize and expand the kitchen environment. That goes beyond selecting the appliances. “A functional kitchen helps the family and guests stay out of the cook’s way, and vice versa,” Bob notes. “If an open oven traps people in the kitchen, that’s not good. If the cook has to go around an island or through a crowd to get to the refrigerator, that’s inconvenient. If you put an island where it doesn’t really fit, you’ve built

yourself a perpetual traffic jam. “Marrying the working triangle of the sink (water source), stovetop (heat source) and refrigerator (food source), along with the other appliances, utensils and accessories, to modern cabinets, lighting, storage and flooring,” Bob notes, “makes magic happen. The new-found ease of retrieving pans from spacious, waist-level drawers, or spices from an ordered spice drawer, or discrete lights shining directly on food preparation areas, transform the task of cooking into a pleasure.” Throw in a second or third cook, the rest of the family or a houseful of guests, and a functional kitchen becomes a great kitchen, and that helps turn a great cook into a happy cook. Now, where do you want to eat? David Decker is president of Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms, based in Carmel (877-252-1420, www.affordablekandb.com). Have a home improvement question?

Is your lawn not looking too hot this spring? COMMENTARY By Randy Sorrell Does your lawn look as scary as mine? Bare spots and a little weedy seem to be the norm this spring. Actually, if you drive by my house real fast and squint your eyes, it doesn’t look that bad. Hot fashion diva and Union Savings Bank mortgage guru Leigh Ann Clayton says hers looks like @#*&. Ouch! Don’t blame the patchiness on your lawn company either. I suspect Greeenskeeper, located in Carmel, will have mine whipped into shape ASAP (please?). Last summer’s marathon drought is the primary culprit for the toasty dead patches littering the seas of emerald green. Your neighbor’s dandelion experiment is another stimulating factor. And if it hasn’t greened up by now, it’s dead. Me? I blame it on the Democrats. Pat Bauer specifically … and might as well toss a little love to the Al Gore / global warming campaign and Obama too. Just because. Just like each incredible outdoor living space we gratefully design / install, each embarrassing lawn has its own fix. Some will respond to a simple DIY hard rake scratching: seed and topsoil dressing cocktail. Others demand more substantial intervention, and that’s where guys like Mark Skipper at Mustard Seed Landscapes thrive (317-776-2300).

Mark says, “A more substantial solution is to aggressively aerate the lawn, completely eradicate the dead patches and over-seed with a high-quality seed mix blend specific to your turf type conditions.” Use a calibrated spreader for success, and too much seed is definitely not better. We like a product call penn-mulch instead of straw. This green pelletized product is void of weed seeds and not messy, and it has fertilizer impregnated into it. Once implemented, daily watering for 3-5 weeks is critical. If the seed / soil bed becomes dry, you have the opportunity to start over. On a happy note, did you notice the insane display of flowering trees this season? Magnolias, crabapples, redbuds, serviceberry and weeping cherries were all blooming simultaneously. Subscribe to the Surroundings by Natureworks+ YouTube channel to stay up on “the latest blooming trends” in Central Indiana. I credit the phenomenal display of spring color to the Republicans … thanks Mitch, Brainard too. Just because.

» Skin allergies in dogs – It is believed that 10 to 15 percent of all dogs have allergies. Common signs include itching, paw licking, face rubbing, chronic ear infections, recurring skin rashes, skin biting and chewing, hair loss, red patches around the eyes and ears, hot spots, inflamed skin and unpleasant odor, and chronic skin allergies can lead to depression and personality changes. Some breeds of terriers are more susceptible to allergies, as are Golden Retrievers. Owners of dogs with skin allergies should bathe their pets more often. -www.pawnation.com

Treating your dog’s allergies can be tough work PETS By Dr. Greg Maggnusson Allergies suck. I know. There are some days I can barely work through the sneezing and runny eyes, but that’s not the worst part. The most frustrating part about seasonal allergies is they simply can’t be cured. Every year, they come back. Veterinary dermatologists like our friends Dr. Terry Grieshaber, ACVD, of the Circle

City Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital, and Dr. Lori Thompson, ACVD, of the Animal Dermatology Clinic, like to explain pet allergies in terms of what they call a “threshold model.” The threshold model suggests that if your pet has “allergies,” she has the potential to show symptoms at any time during the year. The variable determining whether she is symptomatic is the total number of her allergy triggers she is exposed to at any given time. If she’s exposed to all of them at the same time, she’ll show symptoms. If she’s exposed to none of them, she won’t.

duce dust mites you change your furnace filters monthly, have an HEPA-filtered vacuum cleaner, and take meticulous care of her bedding. Great! Her symptoms are probably a lot less. You may not even need prescription medication for her at all. Congratulations!

If, however, after all those wonderful management changes, she still shows symptoms, it’s probably because she’s still exposed to her airborne and contact allergens, like the oak and the grass. No matter how you try, there isn’t a darn thing you can do to keep every last airborne spring and fall allergen out of your home. Plus, she has to pee, right?

Commemorating one of my all-time childhood heroes COMMENTARY By Dick Wolfsie Brooklyn Dodger slugger Edwin Donald Snider, the Duke of Flatbush, star centerfielder for 17 seasons, recently died. This is no way to start a humor column, but I have over the past several years made observations about the passing of people like Soupy Sales, Steve Allen and Art Buchwald, iconic figures who affected my life and whom I had the pleasure of meeting. The name Duke Snider may mean little to you, but he was my hero back in the days when I ate and slept baseball. Literally. I fiddled with my macaroni and cheese in front of the tiny black and white TV waiting for No. 4 to stride to the plate. I went to bed with the transistor radio under my pillow, listening to the games at Ebbets Field, just 30 miles from my house in suburban New York City. Duke was the last surviving member of the starting lineup of the 1955 championship team that finally defeated the Yankees after a zillion tries. Hall of famers Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson were just a few of the players who made a hit with me. But there was only one Duke. Years ago, I asked Duke in a TV interview if it irked him that some baseball writers back in the ’50s dubbed him the third-best centerfielder in baseball, but “the worst centerfielder in New York,” a nod to the greatness of Mays and Mantle. I badly bobbled the question so it came off

as if I were a critic instead of a fan. I finally got to first base with him by rattling off some of his impressive stats. By the way, if you ever want to win a bar bet, consider this query: In the l950s, who slugged the most homeruns? No, it wasn’t Mays or Mantle: It was Duke. Enjoy your beer. A few years ago, I bought a baseball on eBay with the signatures of Willy Mays, Mickey Mantle and Duke Snider. A rip-off, I finally decided. Willy or Mickey’s authenticated autograph alone usually sold for five times that. When Carl Erskine attended a fantasy baseball camp (where devotees play ball with idols of games gone by), he recalled my skepticism about my Internet purchase and returned from Florida with an official major league baseball: “To Dick, all the best, Duke Snider.” Once again my hero had hit one outta the park. Last week, Carl offered me a final nugget. “As roommates, Duke and I hit 408 home runs,” he told me. “Bet you didn’t know that, Dick.” I didn’t. But I did know two things. First: The Duke hit 407 of those four-baggers. And second: Carl Erskine loves to tell that story. And, after all, great stories are what baseball is all about.
