IU Health, School of Medicine announce $150-million research collaboration editorial@youarecurrent.com  IU Health and the Indiana University School of Medicine will invest $150 million during a five-year period in the Strategic Research Initiative. The project will give both institutions an opportunity to dually collaborate in scientific investigations, translational research and clinical trials that will result in innovative treatments for disease. IU Health, the state’s largest and most comprehensive health system, will invest $75 million in the Strategic Research Initiative and IU School of Medicine will match that with an additional $75 million

in resources. The initial focus will be on projects in the fields of neuroscience, cancer and cardiovascular disease. “This investment is further evidence of IU Health’s continued commitment to our mission of clinical care, education and research,” said Daniel J. Evans, president and CEO of IU Health. “Our partnership with the IU School of Medicine and the Initiative’s promise of breakthrough research are essential to advancing patient care.” The three target research areas – cancer, neuroscience and cardiovascular disease – will also study key strategic service lines for IU Health and important medical needs as Americans age and health care costs

increase. “Together, our organizations have an uncommon degree of strategic alignment that will contribute to the development of personalized medical treatments to improve patient safety and outcomes,” said Eric Williams, executive vice president for academic affairs at IU Health. The Strategic Research Initiative will provide patients with access to new therapies developed through translational research and clinical trials, and will make use of the latest genetic tools to develop therapies unique to patients, making for more effective medical treatment for patients.

YAR awards $8,700 in grants

editorial@youarecurrent.com

Hamilton County Youth as Resources, a program of United Way of Central Indiana, has awarded more than $8,700 to fund community service projects designed and implemented by Hamilton County youth. A kickoff celebration was held April 12 at the Hamilton County 4-H Grounds to honor area youth volunteers. This year, YAR awarded grants to 12 youth-led projects. “United Way of Central Indiana is proud to support Hamilton County’s YAR grants because they have such a positive impact on youth and our community,” said UWCI Director Joan Isaac. The 2012 grant recipients include: • Chaucie’s Place Team Room Renovation, a project of Boy Scout Troop No. 180, was awarded $970.51 to redesign a room at the new Chaucie’s Place location in Carmel. Scouts will be installing drywall, painting, carpeting and installing windows in an area used by the investigative team that works with children who are victims of neglect and abuse. • Community Micro-Library for the Near East Side, a project of University High School, was awarded $1,000 to build a portable micro-library for use in areas of need around the city. Students will be working on construction of the library structure, as well as asking for book donations for the lending library. • Helping Hands for Precious Gifts Daycare, a project of the Carmel High School Advancement Via Individual Determination group, was awarded $727.82 to renovate a room at a nonprofit day care center serving children of low-income families, including victims of domestic abuse and homeless families. The students will paint, build toy boxes, create a blackboard wall and include children at the center in creating a new, inviting space to play and relax. • Information Kiosks at Bray Family Homestead Park, a project of Boy Scout

Troop No. 180, was awarded $823.62 to construct cedar kiosks at a new Hamilton County park. The scouts will construct two information centers complete with cork boards for flyers and boxes for trail maps and brochures. • Senior Citizen Spring Fling, a project of the CHS Key Club, was awarded $417.68 to purchase items needed for a dance with senior citizens at PrimeLife Enrichment Center.

Club members will lead volunteers in cleaning out the basement, painting and assembling new furnishings and decorations for the space.

Achievement Kokan wins Girl Scout Silver Award COMMUNITY

Commentary by Jeff Worrell

The impressive speaker was presenting remarkable research on the timely topic of depression in youth. She successfully captured the attention of her audience by being well-prepared, interesting and believable. She maneuvered through her facts, figures and data points with expert grace and skill. The microphone and projection screen were almost like natural extensions of her body. If I did not know better, I would have thought the expert at the front of the room was a timetested researcher from Purdue University. Instead, her credentials revealed she is actually a seventh-grader at Clay Middle School. Zeba Kokan is the seventh-grader who wowed her audience with a presentation created in order to earn her Girl Scout Silver Award. Troop 1636 is lucky to have Zeba, as she was an inspiration to the crowd and clearly deserves the award. Not only was Zeba an excellent presenter, but she also uncovered and shared information that opened some eyes and exposed data that may have been previously unknown. She created a PowerPoint presentation to pres-

NO W

ent her findings, but she also created a brochure to bring awareness of the problem to her peers and adults. One of the goals of the brochure is to provide hope to someone who might be experiencing depression and come across the helpful information. In the brochure, she points out famous people, including Isaac Newton, suffered from depression. But, there is treatment, thus giving hope to someone reading the brochure. She details the symptoms of depression, some of the common causes of depression and offers encouragement. Although the detail and effort that went into creating the foundation for the presentation were well-conceived and thought out, it was the delivery of the material that seemed to inspire the crowd. Clearly a future leader, Zeba's parents appeared to be very proud. They were there to witness her triumph in person of her and I was inspired by the family support.

Cool temperatures and overcast skies didn’t stop more than 1,500 runners from completing the 2nd Annual Carmel Marathon and HalfMarathon last Saturday. Indianapolis resident Jesse Davis was the overall champion with a time of 2:22:05. The female champion was Leah Thorvilson, of Little Rock, Ark., with a time of 2:42:13. Contestants came from around the country, and in at least one case, from around the world, to compete in the marathon, which was a qualifier for the Boston Marathon, held every year in April.

Among those traveling contestants were Rommel Mayuga, 33, and Chris Vijitchanton, 29, of Chicago, who ran a 3:36:00 and a 3:29:40, respectively. “This is one of my favorite marathons,” said Mayuga. “It’s probably one of the best I’ve done. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. One of the best things is when they announce your name at the end. In a lot of the big marathons you just get lost in the crowd.” The men said they have competed in marathons from the Napa Valley Marathon to the Twin Cities Marathon. “We have very busy career lives, and running is an escape,” said Mayuga. “It’s kind of a time

to meditate. It’s the best escape I can think of. Then, as you do a couple of marathons, you kind of get addicted.” A complete listing of runners and results is available online at www.carmelmarathon.com.

WHY DO I NEED AN ATTORNEY? WHY CAN’T I DO IT MYSELF? Most of the time creditors will not negotiate with individuals, or debt settlement companies. They will ask an attorney for a “power of attorney”. An attorney locks in the terms, so that the creditor cannot change them and try to collect more interest or fees later. An attorney can also protect you in the event of a lawsuit occurring while negotiations are ongoing. WHAT ARE THE RISKS? There is a risk of a lawsuit occurring before the debt is settled, which is usually avoided by using a LOCAL attorney. Also one’s credit score could decline while negotiations are taking place.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SETTLE ALL THE DEBT? Most of the time a creditor will not begin negotiating until debt is 6 months past due. Therefore debt settlement is usually completed as soon as terms are reasonable. AM I TAXED ON THE MONEY SAVED? There could be tax due on money saved. Your accountant can see if you are exempt from taxes under IRS Insolvency Rules, Publication 4681. HOW CAN I LEARN MORE?

Cover story

City Council President Rick Sharp says new ordinance may be fresh start for council, CRC By Kevin Kane • kevin@youarecurrent.com Carmel City Council President Rick Sharp lauded an ordinance last week giving the council oversight over all new debt incurred by the Carmel Redevelopment Commission, calling it the most important accomplishment the council has made since his service began. But it also could result in an important byproduct, Sharp said: a fresh start for the CRC, in more ways than one. Sharp The council last Tuesday night approved amendments to the ordinance that created the CRC in 1989, adding text requiring the commission to get approval from the council before taking on any new debt. Previously, the CRC only had to seek the council’s OK for municipal bonds, like those issued for the construction of the Palladium, per an opinion on state statutes from the attorney general. But the approved amendments now require the commission to bring before the council all forms of new debt – such as installment purchase contracts or notes of participation. The ordinance should reverse a long-standing trend of the appointed members of the CRC taking on debt, much of which is ultimately backed by residential tax dollars, without the approval of elected officials, said Sharp. A recent financial report from the CRC shows the commission has issued nearly $249 million in debt, of which slightly more than $140 million received no council approval. The council now takes over final say on new redevelopment debt at a time when, according to the same report, the CRC has a revenue-to-debt ratio of 1 – meaning its projected annual income and required annual debt payments are nearly even. “The facts are the CRC had maxed out its credit through what I think are some missteps in forcing development to continue during the recession, when perhaps the best thing would have been to slow down,” Sharp said.  But Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said the issue isn’t as simple as that, saying the perceived cash flow issues at the CRC were caused by the commission taking on an unexpected $5.5 million payment to The Center for the Performing Arts to make up for a budget shortfall. “The redevelopment commission, at the Brainard request of the council, made up the shortfall at The Center, which we didn’t expect,” Brainard said. “Only because of that is there some concern about cash flow for the rest of the year. Going forward, there’s going to be a very detailed fiscal plan for both the CRC and The Center, so there should be no issue with cash flow.” Sharp has said it took years to get a financial report from the CRC like the one presented this year, and he said the council’s ordinance came about after the failure of multiple proposals at the state level. But despite any tension or disagreements that may have existed previously between the council and CRC, Sharp said he’s ready to bury the proverbial hatchet.  “There comes a point in time when you have to acknowledge 16 | May 1, 2012

The Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts, is one of the CRC's most high-profile projects. things have changed, and in order to get things done for the people who’ve elected us, you compromise,” Sharp said. “There’s no value in finger-pointing.” Some of Sharp’s fellow councilors, including Eric Seidensticker and Kevin Rider, said Tuesday communication between the council, CRC and Brainard has recently been better than they have ever experienced. Sharp said Brainard, in a recent council committee meeting, was helping provide the necessary language to make the new amendments as strict as possible. Sharp said he also has been assured the commission’s attorney will not look into ways to circumvent the new restrictions.  “I’m working hard, and I think the council is working hard at communicating better,” Brainard said. “Our system of government is one where there is supposed to be a tug and pull between one branch and another.” In addition to an apparently rebuilt relationship between the council and CRC, the commission also has before it another opportunity to start fresh. The council, Sharp said, is ready and willing to help the CRC refinance, through municipal bonds, as much of its debt as is eligible.  Not all of it is eligible, though, said Sharp, who added he believes the city already has a small team of consultants working to figure out which of the commission’s obligations can be refinanced. While not all of the debt will be eligible, Sharp said he’s confident as much as $800,000 to $1 million in tax increment finance money can be saved this year by refinancing, which would greatly improve the commission’s debt ratio. “Unlike a mortgage for a consumer where federal law says you have to be able to pay that loan off at any time without a prepay-

Quick turnaround Though he said there is a significant amount of information to be pulled together and reviewed, City Council President Rick Sharp said he would be surprised if the Carmel Redevelopment Commission, the city and their consultants do not have to the council by June a proposal on refinancing the CRC’s debt. There’s no time to waste, he said. “There’s a window here in terms of the rate, and no one knows how long that window is going to be open. But you’d hate to think you lost a quarter or half a point for waiting.” Current in Carmel

ment penalty, for other types of debt instruments for the business community, those laws don’t apply,” Brainard said. “You have to keep your payments steady, and you only have windows where you can prepay without a penalty.” Sharp said the city’s credit rating could help land an interest rate of 3.5 percent, or possibly even less than 3 percent, which is several points less than rates being paid by the CRC.   “The spread goes from 5 to 9 percent,” he said, citing the aforementioned financial report. “We can, at a time of historically low interest rates, restructure the CRC’s debt, which will make much more effective use of revenue because we won’t be paying what some might term outrageous interest on these hybrid debt instruments.” While acknowledging the interest rates on some of the commission’s debt are, “in an ideal world, too high,” Brainard said refinancing debt at higher rates was “always the plan.” “I don’t think most people expected the recession to be as long as it was,” he said. “At the time, I think CRC was making good decisions based on the fact. The bottom line is we have yet to use any general fund dollars for redevelopment. And there’s no reason to. People got jobs, good jobs, out of the redevelopment, and we’re poised to come out of this recession with a lot of development completed. I’m very proud of the projects the redevelopment commission has accomplished. “I’m tired of hearing from a few people who say CRC is burdening future generations with debt,” he continued. “The exact opposite is true. In fact, it’s a gift to the next generation. These redevelopment districts are generating around $29 million a year. Those districts will expire during the next 15 to 20 years, and that $29 million will go to the tax rolls. That’s almost as much as all the property tax we’re collecting today. It will allow Carmel to have even lower tax rates than we have today. It is a huge gift to the next generation.” Despite their differences in the past, Sharp said now that the council has total fiscal oversight over the CRC, it has no plans to stifle future development attempts. “We’ve solved a problem, and that creates an opportunity,” Sharp said. “Let’s allow them (CRC members) to get back to work redeveloping, instead of wishing they could be redeveloping.”

Editorial Look who’s back to run the paper!

Truth from government

It is our position the bedrock of democracy – trust in government – cannot be permitted to erode through inattentiveness or obfuscation by our elected officials. A recent Current article pointed out Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard twice circulated inaccurate information regarding the existence and content of an environmental study involving the old grain elevator along the Monon Trail. Afterward, his explanation was he simply passed along the facts he was provided by his staff. We don’t doubt his account, but we question whether he would have dug deeper into the facts had the study’s purported conclusions not supported his position. This example is trivial when compared to the omissions, half-truths and outright deceptions regularly disseminated by politicians of all persuasion and position. Unfortunately, we as citizens of a representative democracy have come to assume our government is less than truthful, and the news outlets further spin the story to suit a particular position. Again, not to pick on Brainard for his error, but the situation highlights the need for a vigilant press corps who will not accept all statements without investigation and a citizenry that holds its elected officials accountable for the information they disseminate.

Let's get physical

Commentary by Terry Anker

In a world controlled by the boundaries of physics, why do we still push the axiom dictating we cannot be in two places at once? We book and stretch to make the commute from one city to another, optimistically clinging to the belief we can shuttle amongst the final meeting of the day, attending an away track meet for kid No. 1 and still patiently reviewing homework with the second offspring. While we humans are blessed with a depth of ability, capacity and fortitude seldom fullytaxed, can we manage to attend to our obligations when they are simultaneously dislocated? All too often, I find myself unable to meet those commitments that arise countervailing one to the other. In fact, it seems many of my own good intentions fall victim of too much, too far apart. We end up creating (and most sincerely regretting) the inconvenience caused to those others, as any thoughtful person might be, who manage to be on time and prepared for discussion. Do they simply

under-schedule knowing traffic snarls and meetings go long? Do these to-be-admired folks have some pass to an elaborate system that transports them from one side of town to the other without the pesky twin distractions of time and space? Cellphones and all manner of tools now make our time more efficient. We can do more in a more compact space. And boy, do we do more! Yet, have we simply pushed ourselves to the inevitable result of failure? Are we better served to do less better? In a world of more communication, more productivity and more encounters, should we hoard our time, guarding it jealously against our tendency to squeeze in one further thing? I’d like to consider the question, but it looks like I’m late for my next meeting …

Till dentures do us part Laughs by Danielle Wilson

I hate the dentist. Not personally, of course. I actually like mine very much. But I hate the whole dental experience, especially if it’s for a potentially painful procedure. Take fillings, for example. A few weeks back, once I’d survived the torturous cleaning process, I received bad news – double cavities. Dun, dun, dunnn. In shock, I made an appointment for the following Monday, already knowing I would find some way to postpone it. Luckily, the day arrived with a forecast of “partly cloudy,” the perfect reason to reschedule. I left a voice message with reception saying “Don’t call me, I’ll call you!” and promised to not call for several weeks. I was stalling big time, but I didn’t care. The idea of someone, anyone, even a charming licensed professional drilling into the depths of my highly sensitive nerve-filled teeth scares the bejesus out of me. (I was traumatized as a child when dentists used only diluted “laughing gas” and stickers to numb the pain.) As stupid fate would have it, the following day, my 10-year-old began complaining of a toothache and asked to go see the dentist. Fine. May as well get my appointment over with, too. So I made another appointment and desperately tried to ignore my impending doom. The heart palpitations picked up significantly

during the next couple of days, just as the hours of sleep and my appetite dropped off. When the appointed hour came, I somehow coerced my body into the office (I had seriously considered bribing my son with McDonald’s and making a break for it), and then managed to distract myself for a few minutes with Architectural Digest. Naturally, I let my kid go first (it’s the right thing to do), but then cursed myself for being so stupid. Prolonging the agony only made it worse! Finally, I was up. I begged my doctor for some Valium on the way back, and when he professed not to have any, I demanded, “Then numb me all to hell!” By the grace of God and the Lamaze techniques I learned in birthing class, I survived seven or eight Novocain injections, and then held on for dear life as the dentist chiseled and scraped and jack-hammered my molars. I stumbled out less than an hour later, overwrought and unable to speak coherently. I made a vow, then and there, to love and protect my teeth, till death or dentures do us part. Because I really hate the dentist. Peace out.

Danielle’s principles, or lack thereof, have been called into question repeatedly. She seems to fancy herself as a smarmy, suburban shock columnist. The purpose of humor columns is to entertain, and Mike does so winsomely. Danielle’s writing was once

Paul offers alternative to Obama, Romney Editor,  While both President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney have supported bailouts and unaffordable health care plans, only Rep. Ron Paul has stood steadfast in his commitment to free enterprise. Paul will eliminate our foreign entanglements that have plundered American blood and treasure. And only Paul is committed

to ending the “nanny state” that seeks to have government dictate every aspect of our lives. Our economy and nation can only be restored when government gives individuals back responsibility for their own lives. I urge everyone reading this to vote for Ron Paul. Michael Thompson, 46060

Business background makes Romney clear choice Editor, Our economy is under assault from President Barack Obama’s efforts to transform it into a European-style welfare state. While other candidates have spent their lives in government as the beneficiaries of taxpayer dollars, only Mitt Romney has led a successful career helping new companies get started and producing thousands 18 | May 1, 2012

of jobs. Further, his success in business and his command of the issues make him the candidate most likely to defeat Obama in November. And when it comes to foreign policy, Romney is proud of America’s greatness. Mitt Romney is the right choice for our state and nation. Alex Arnold, 46062 Current in Carmel

Female problems

Laughs by Dick Wolfsie

My story begins with an actual letter I received recently from my supplemental Medicare provider. "Our records show the gender we have for you doesn’t match the information received from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services. To have your gender corrected, please contact your local Social Security Office.” I dialed immediately, hoping to reach a real person who could look into everything without having to actually look at anything, if you know what I mean. After I answered a few automated questions, a man who identified himself as Art came on the phone and offered to assist me. “Yes, we have you on file. What can I do for you, ma’am?” I could see this wasn’t starting out very well. I explained to Art the confusion that had arisen, but I tried talking with a deeper voice, hoping that might move the conversation along in the right direction. “This is a new one for me, Wolfsie. By the way, mind if I just call you Wolfsie? At least until we satisfactorily address this problem? Not sure I can fix this with a simple keystroke. This may require a face-to-face meeting.” I’m not a rugged-looking guy. I even have some soft features. “Are you on Medicare?” Art asked.

“Yes, for the past several months.” “Which parts?” “Gee whiz, you don’t have a record of those parts, either? There must be some explanation for all this.” “Wolfsie, maybe the computer read your first name as being either a man’s or a woman’s, thus the confusion.” “You must be right, Art. Who doesn’t have a niece or a grandmother named Richard?” “I need to put you on hold again, Wolfsie. Sorry to make you wait.” “No problem. I’ll pass the time flipping through Brides Magazine.” Moments later … “It looks to me, Wolfsie, we have you officially listed as a man all your life, but for some reason you became a woman in our system when you signed up for Medicare. That was effective March 2.” We had been on the phone almost an hour when Art said he needed to check one more thing. I held for another five minutes, but he never came back on the line. He just kept me hanging. Isn’t that just like a man?

Liposuction and treatment for aged eyes Commentary by Barry Epply Q: Will I go back to the smallest size I was right after liposuction? It’s been four weeks now since I had liposuction of the bra line, abdomen, flanks and inner thighs. Right after I got out of my surgery and for a week or so after that, my stomach was flat. But then I ballooned up and, while I’m not big or anything, I am bigger than I’d like to be. So do patients tend to go back to the size they were right after surgery before all the swelling took place? A: What you are experiencing is known as lymphedema due to partial obstruction of lymphatic outflow in the treated areas. This is a temporary phenomenon that occurs in all liposuction patients for the first few months after surgery. It is a self-solving problem as the lymphatic channels heal and reopen. This will restore the shape back to what you saw right after surgery. Q: My eyes used to be one of my best features, but now they are just getting oldlooking. I am 47 years old and have wrinkles around my eyes and some extra skin on the eyelids. My brows now seem a little low, too. I don’t want to go through surgery such as an eyelid tuck or a brow lift, so what can I do? Do I need some special cream or some type of laser treatment?  A: There is no nonsurgical equivalent to what eyelid and brow lift surgery can do, but there are some laser treatments that offer some mild to

moderate improvement – certainly far better than what any type of topical cream can do. Fractional lasers are different than traditional ones because they treat only a fraction of the skin surface, but each tiny laser point or dot penetrates deeper. Because eyelid skin is so thin (the epidermis is only .04 millimeters thick), it requires a series of light laser treatments (one to four) to prevent a burn injury and get some really visible improvement. Studies have shown patients get a 25-percent to 50-percent improvement with half of the patients maintaining a 1- to 2-millimeter eyebrow lift one year later. Recovery is usually about three to four days after each treatment.

Business

Overcoming the fear of flying Business by David Cain I hate to fly. Strong words, I know, but being in the air scares me more than just a little. I always get to meet people when I fly. They aren’t really looking to meet me, but my clutching of the armrests on takeoffs, landings and any rough in-betweens always attracts their interest. The interest isn’t one of wanting to get acquainted, but instead, they glare like I’m a crying 6-month-old ruining their flight. I have to talk to get my mind off the flying. When you think about rational things, your emotions tend to loosen their grip. I know when I feel my emotions, in the air or at home, they start to take over. When I force myself to think, I become rational, even if it is just working a math problem or talking about where you’re from. Thinking makes us more rational and makes us all different than other animals. When the plane touched ground, the tension drained and exhaustion became my norm. I sat down in Chicago to wait for my next flight. It was a rainy day. As I sat watching people come and go, there were a lot of people running. There was also a big line at the gate ticket coun-

“Our mission includes recognizing opportunities to support the performing arts in our community.”

ter. Two women in separate lines were crying. Delays. The first woman walked away sobbing. I started thinking about the demeanor of an airport as storms move across the nation. Planes are late and flights are missed; people’s lives are disrupted. Pilots, passengers, gate attendants alike. Disruption. But for these women, I couldn’t help thinking things are never as big a deal later as they seemed at the time. This day would be a blip on their radar. It would quickly and neatly be archived as soon as it ended. I returned home on time with two things to consider improving. The first, always remember rational thinking can trump emotions. It’s the surest way to diffuse emotionally charged situations. The second, things are never as big of a deal later as they seem when you are dealing with them. I think I’m not only ready to fly again, but I’m also ready to tackle daily problems. David Cain works at Magnitude, a sales and marketing company. Contact David at David.Cain@ MarketMagnitude.com.

Home sales increase in Hamilton County By Jim Litten • editorial@youarecurrent.com Spring often ushers in an increase in home sales, and that trend is happening across much of central Indiana. In March 2012, 2,327 homes sold – an increase of 4.9 percent over March 2011 – in the nine counties F.C. Tucker tracks. In Hamilton County, specifically, 498 homes pended, which is an increase of 38 homes from March 2011. • In Carmel, 139 homes sold in March 2012. By contrast, 130 homes sold in March 2011. • Home prices in Carmel continue to increase. The average sales price increased by 5.7 percent to $305,159 in March 2012.

• Of the pended home sales in Carmel, one was priced more than $1 million; 16 were priced $500,000 to $999,999; 45 were priced $300,000 to $499,999; and 77 were priced at $299,999 or less. • Inventory in Carmel continues to gradually decrease, which is a sign of market stabilization. In March 2012, there were 714 homes for sale – a decrease of 82 homes from the year before. The market is slowly trending up, both nationally and here in central Indiana. We anticipate prices will continue to increase as investors and first-time homebuyers compete for bargain-priced homes.

Child Custody and Summer Visitation

As the school year comes to an end, parents are scheduling camps, vacations and other activities for their children. Of course, this also means that the summer visitation requirements must be addressed for divorced families. Family law attorney, Lanae Harden, gives tips on how to ensure a smooth summer for both the parents and children involved.

1. If you don’t have a detailed parenting visitation schedule, create one. This may be difficult for former spouses to come to an agreement. If you are unable to come up with a mutually agreeable schedule, consult a professional to aid with this. The more detailed your agreement is, the less room for interpretation, therefore less conflict. 2. Recognize the emotional impact this may have on the children. A significant change in schedule can bring up emotions for the children. This could be positive or negative emotions, but usually a mixture of both. Children thrive on routine, and summer visitation schedules usually vary significantly from the routines that the children became accustomed to during the school year. Depending on the ages of the children, explain to them the exact schedule and where they will be at any given time. Create a calendar with color coded days signifying when they will be at mom’s house and when they will be at dad’s house. 3. Plan accordingly. This may include scheduling time off work or altering your work schedule when the children are visiting. Plan appropriate summer-time activities. If you are the non-custodial parent, this may also include arranging for care (nanny, babysitter etc.). If possible, utilize their same care provider at both homes for consistency. 4. Be supportive if your child misses the other parent. Don’t take this personally or assume this means the child loves the other parent more than you. Look for ways to calm your child and allow them to speak frequently with their other parent. This will only help build your bond with your child. The best interest of the child is always the most important thing to keep in mind. Both parents should communicate and cooperate to make sure that reasonable visitation time is met and the child feels safe and secure. If you need assistance with determining child visitation or custody, contact HARDEN JACKSON at 317-569-0770 or www.hardenjacksonlaw.com. Remember, these suggestions are not meant to be legal advice. You should consult an attorney to discuss the specifics of your situation.

RealAmerica launches new venture with StorAmerica Storage & Wine Cellar

Fine Lines, INC

Hair & Nail Salon www.finelinessalon.com

By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com Carmel-based RealAmerica Development, LLC is making its first foray into the storage business – and it’s doing it right here at home. Founded in 1995, the company, located at 111 N. Range Line Rd. in the heart of the Arts & Design District, focuses primarily on apartments and single-family dwellings. It sees the expansion into personal and commercial storage centers as a natural expansion, according to President Ronda Shrewsbury. “From our standpoint, we already build multifamily homes and apartments,” Shrewsbury said. “If you manage apartments, managing a storage facility is very complementary. It’s not reinventing the wheel for us.” The new location, called StorAmerica Storage & Wine Cellar, is located at 4420 E. 146th St., Carmel. As its name suggests, it features not only traditional storage spaces, but also climate-controlled units and a separate climate-and-humidity-controlled space that Shrewsbury hopes will appeal to wine collectors and restaurants looking to store their higher-end bottles off-site. That area will consist of individually sealed units linked to security cameras and a backup generator. StorAmerica Phase I is now online, offering 344 units, 144 of them temperature-controlled, in sizes ranging from small personal storage to boat- or RV-sized units. A second phase of construction is planned for the future to construct an additional 356 units, for a final total storage space of 100,000 square feet. Don’t forget these – There are six tax breaks people tend to neglect every year: enrolling in higher education, caring for an ailing parent, paying for childcare, buying a house, surviving a natural disaster and paying state income taxes. - moneyland. time.com

Sunday Brunch from 11am-2pm Shrewsbury StorAmerica will also include a business center with free Wi-Fi and conference room available to all customers free of charge. “The business center came about because there’s just a need for meeting space,” Shrewsbury said. “If people are out selling medical equipment they’re storing in the climate storage, they need a space to stop and have meetings.” Located within a short drive of Carmel, Westfield, Noblesville and Fishers, Shrewsbury said the area demographic was a perfect fit for the company’s first foray into storage. “We were looking for a high-development area with a variety of housing options, businesses and medical offices that need storage for their records,” Shrewsbury said. “Hamilton County is a nice, broad-based growth market.” StorAmerica Storage & Wine Cellar is now open at 4420 E. 146th St., Carmel. For more information, visit the Web site at www.storamerica146th.com or call 733-8655.

Business

Move the needle: Time Commentary by CJ McClanahan

Successful executives (and people for that matter) understand the difference between an interest and a commitment. An interest is something they’d like to do if time permits. A commitment is an item that absolutely must be done regardless of the circumstances. For those executives who struggled to find the time to develop their businesses, every single interruption that popped into their day instantly became a commitment and their single focus shifted from running the business toward handling interruptions. The successful leader understands it is absolutely impossible to get everything done, and every day ends with incomplete items on the “to-do” list. What’s critical is that the most important commitments are complete when you leave the office at the day’s end. It doesn’t matter who puts in the most hours; what matters is if the essential tasks were completed. As Dr. Stephen Covey pointed out in “First Things First,” you need to develop the habit of spending your time on the important, and not just the urgent. Here are a few fundamentals to help you begin the process. First, plan the week in advance. And, yes, it is as easy as it sounds. Take 10 minutes on Monday morning and put together a list of the commitments that must get completed by Friday at 5 p.m. These are the

items you’ll finish regardless of unpredictable fires that pop up throughout the week. Next, consider setting aside time during your day to work on specific items. Blocking your schedule helps you stay focused on what’s really important. The best place to practice this exercise is with your e-mail. Despite what you may have heard, having two monitors sitting on your desk with e-mail open at all times is killing, not helping, your productivity. When you are working on a task that requires your concentration, you should turn your e-mail off. Even the most successful time-management experts struggle to keep the “main thing the main thing.” As a result, my final piece of advice in this area is to take time at the end of each day and reflect. Look back at your activity and ask what you’d do differently if you could go back to 8 a.m. and start over. These reflections will help you make better decisions in the future. As with everything, your goal should be to make improvements each day. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute. CJ McClanahan is the founder and president of reachmore, a leadership training and consulting firm, and also the author of “Thrive.” To contact CJ, or to find out more about reachmore, go to www. goreachmore.com.

Technology Location information from photos LIFESTYLE

Technology by Ken Colburn Is it true that if I post a picture from my smartphone on Facebook it will show where I took the picture? - Candice Facebook’s new timeline makeover includes a map section that can show where certain photographs were taken, so if you upload a picture and tag it with the location (from your smartphone or your computer), it will show the location in the post and it will appear as a pin on your timeline map. In general, simply uploading a photo via your smartphone will not automatically include the exact location information, which you can easily verify by clicking on the map section on your timeline. If you want to make sure you can’t tag your location on any post from your mobile device, you can turn off Location Services for the Facebook mobile app on your phone. It is true that depending upon your smartphone’s settings, an image may contain location information (specifically longitude and latitude), in what’s called the “metadata.” Metadata is essentially data about the file itself common to many digital file formats, including most of the images and documents you generate. The list of potential data that can be mined from photographs is actually quite extensive and easily viewed on your computer by viewing the

properties (right click on any image in Windows and click on the Details tab). The location issue (or geotagging as it’s often called) came into play when smartphones equipped with both a GPS and a camera became popular. Facebook removes any of the user-generated metadata when you upload images, so your location info (if it exists) is automatically stripped from the image the public can access. (The original file Facebook has on its internal servers, however, will still contain all of the original info.) The easiest way to eliminate location information from your smartphone photographs is to turn off the location services while you are taking the picture (airplane mode will do it). On some smartphones, you can specifically turn off location services for all photographs, but have it remain in use for everything else. Those with iPhones can go into the Settings/ General/Location Services to turn it off for the built-in camera or any third-party apps. Android users can turn off location info by going to the camera app menu and making sure the Store Location option is turned off.

Potter spins stone as craftsmanship fades Commentary by Don Knebel

Nothing more exemplifies modern India than the call centers my wife and I visited in Bangalore. The jobs are so stressful that break rooms with video games are provided as incentives for people who stick it out for more than a few months, yet young people from all over India apply, trying to gain access to the life a regular paycheck can provide. Not everyone in India is happy with what is going on in Bangalore. On the same trip, we visited a tiny village in which an elderly potter was making clay vessels by the only method he knows. Balancing a large, round stone on a small rock, he spun the stone faster and faster until it had enough momentum to keep spinning while he formed a lump of wet clay into whatever vessel the people in the village needed. Something new had recently come to his village. Connected to a power line strung on a pole is an old TV set, tied to a satellite receiver that provides the first view the villagers have had of the Indian call centers and Bollywood movies. As a result, sons are no longer content to practice the vocations of their fathers, but want, instead, to go the city where they can earn money and buy things they never before even imagined. Through a translator, the potter told us, with a hint of a tear in his eye, none of his sons want

-featuringAPPETIZERS SALADS SANDWICHES STEAKS SEAFOOD The village potter in Bangalore. (Photo by Don Knebel)

to be a potter. As a result, when he is no longer able to spin that stone, the other villagers will lose their only source for the many things the potter has always provided. Neither he nor the villagers know what they will do when that day comes. For some people in India, the price of progress is very high.

Relationships

The blame game

Commentary by Kristen Boice Do you blame someone else for your feelings, issues or how your life has turned out? How does it play out in your relationships, marriage or in the work environment? The blame game can have a powerful impact in your life. It can keep you stuck. Blame keeps us focused on the other person so we don’t have to work on ourselves. It’s really a deflection to dealing with our own issues. When we blame, we place responsibility for our negative feelings and upsets onto another person or situation. Focusing on blame misses the opportunity to resolve the conflict. How can we work on ourselves when we are focused on what someone else is doing andsaying and what he or she has done to us? This can lead us to feeling like a victim, as opposed to feeling empowered. Once we make a decision to stop the blame game and to take ownership for our own feelings and actions, then we can focus on living out the life we want. By focusing on ourselves, we begin to feel stronger and have the courage to face our feelings and pain. There are some initial steps to begin the process of shifting from

blame to taking responsibility for our emotions. 1. Explore your blaming patterns. Who do you blame? Why do you blame them? How often are you blaming others like your spouse, friend, co-worker, neighbor, parent, boss, etc.? Do you notice a pattern? Do you have a pattern of wanting to be right? 2. Learn to recognize your own feelings. Do you know what you are feeling? Do you take time to dig deep and really figure out what is bothering you and why? Begin to pay attention and notice what you are feeling. 3. Focus on solutions. Look at how you can resolve the conflict or work through it in order to begin the forgiveness process. Ultimately, blame and not forgiving doesn’t hurt the other person; it hurts you. It’s time to look within and step into an empowering state of being. It’s about becoming a better you.

Spring cleaning: Luke and wine Commentary by Bob Walters In the spirit of spring cleaning, let’s discuss a pair of not entirely inaccurate, but eminently debatable declarations made recently in this space. First, in the April 3 column “Truth, Holy Week and the big picture,” I wrote Luke was “the only Gospel writer who was neither in Jerusalem for the crucifixion nor an acquaintance of Jesus.” A small point, really, but I should remember what I write in my own column, like specifically on March 24, 2009, “Luke: Jesus came for all.” It is true the Bible does not name or position Luke as being with Jesus as unambiguously as it describes the presence with Jesus of the other three Gospel writers: disciples Matthew and John, and Mark who ran naked from the garden of Gethsemane when Jesus was arrested. But – and I wrote this three years ago – Christian tradition says Luke was one of “the 72” harvest workers Jesus sent out like “lambs among wolves” to spread his teaching (Luke 10:1-23). Also – and again Luke wasn’t named – it was very likely Luke, according to early scholars, was walking with Cleopas to the village of Emmaus (Luke 24:13ff) when Jesus appeared to them after the resurrection. Even though the Bible doesn’t say either way, it stands to reason Luke met and knew Jesus, so, oops. The “big picture” is Luke knew the truth resides in Jesus.

Second, from April 10, “The Wine, the Cup and Communion” described how the four biblical accounts of the Last Supper and Communion (Matthew, Mark, Luke and Acts) never actually mention “wine.” They don’t, but the point wasn’t wine; it was that Jesus described the contents of the cup as the “blood of the new covenant.” Alertly, my good church buddy Don and savvy Current reader Michal were among those who sent e-mails citing Matthew 26:29, where Jesus, offering the cup, refers to drinking “this fruit of the vine” again in his “Father’s kingdom.” They wondered, “What could be in the cup except wine?” Fair question, and it stands to reason the cup contained wine. Yet there are enough biblical metaphors surrounding “fruit” (e.g. Galatians 5:22-23, Matthew 7:16), “vine” (e.g. John 15) and “kingdom” for an interesting conversation as to what Jesus meant beyond just wine. But still, oops. More precise writing would have maintained focus on the central point, which is the “blood of the new covenant” is our shared life of faith in Christ. I should have tinkered with those columns a little longer.

Interior design loves haute couture Commentary by Vicky Earley Interior design and haute couture dance a fiery and everlasting tango with fashion taking the lead. The first time I noticed this was during the English chintz years of the late 1980s. A friend, Shelly, wore the crisp floral fabric to an afternoon wedding and was in awe of the elegance of her perfect choice for the time and for the occasion. I realized that fashion and décor were inextricably entwined when we all arrived at the country club reception. Shelly had arrived a few minutes prior and my girlfriends and I found her standing at the door in sheer panic. She looked over her shoulder to reveal the drapery and the sofas were covered in the very same pink and green floral chintz of her dress. Shelly and the furnishings were forever bonded. I will confess we spent the remainder of the reception pretending like we couldn’t see her because she blended into the décor. The relationship between fashion and décor is typically more subtle as it weaves its way quietly. There is a subtle link between the two when it is just the mirroring of the way a textile drapes or the replication of a collar on a window treatment. Typically, the sheer organzas of fashion are loose and free-flowing. The femininity is

undeniable, especially when juxtaposed to textural, masculine fabrics. In décor, you will find the sheer has returned to the window, but not in the form of your grandmother’s tight-pinch pleat sheer that moves on a traverse rod. You will find sheers tonal and embellished with glitz. One of my favorites is a sheer studded with “diamonds.” You will find the same sheers on the red carpet flowing with grace and elegance. Some of the links between haute couture and interior design are obvious. If you book a room in Milan’s Maison Maschino, you can slumber away in a ruby-ball-gown-inspired bed. Often, fashion designers are falling off the runway and heading toward the interior with the introduction of their own furnishing lines. Regardless, there is a marriage of love and convenience between haute couture and interior design. They are both a reflection of our societal mood at a point in time, and that moment is shared. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel. If you have an interior design question, please contact artichokedesigns@aol. com.

Simple LIFESTYLE – This spring, you could easily make a change in your lifestyle by finding new ways to recycle. One is to use microfiber cloths instead of paper towels; one cloth can replace 60 rolls of paper towels. Finding reusable materials helps the environment, and often, they aren’t difficult to make or use. - goodhousekeeping.com Simple update – Redesigning different rooms of your house may seem a bit challenging when you want a whole new look, but some wallpaper can help you a lot further than just walls. Also, try it as a coffee-table surface after placing a sheet of glass over it. - bgh.com Light work – If you want to change the look of your home’s exterior without going through the troubles of repainting or replanting, try doing something a little less complicated like lighting up the outdoor space with lanterns or install water features, like water fountains or bubblers. - bhg.com Try this – Maybe instead of redoing your garden this month, you’re trying to find new ways to save money. There’s an option that also helps the environment: saving energy. By doing simple tasks like adding light dimmers or setting a programmable thermostat, you can save a lot of money. - goodhousekeeping.com

Serious insect fear seriously overrated Gardening by Holly Lindzy “Arachnophobia” is more than just a creepy movie; it’s a real condition involving real fears. And I certainly cannot fathom what it would be like to have such deep-rooted fear. It would cause hysterics upon sight of a spider. But then again, phobias are irrational fears, and that’s pretty extreme. What makes perfect sense, of course, are those people without phobias – spider, insect or otherwise – killing critters as they go along in life for no real reason other than they like to throw shoes. And why not? I mean, they’re like one-sixteenth the size of a human. We clearly need to stay on guard. I mean you could be rolling over in bed one night and trap one, and then it could bite you. That would be horrific. Around central Indiana, your chances of rolling onto a poisonous spider are pretty slim, but still … think of the little, round painful bump it will leave. Thank goodness you’re asleep and will never even know. It’d be different if they had any redeeming value at all. Something like voracious preying on really icky bugs, or maybe an important part of the food chain, even, for other “more-desirable” wildlife. That would make spiders way better and we could maybe live with them after all. Wait. You see where I’m going with this … Being the self-proclaimed insect advocate I am, I have a mission in life to save the helpless creatures of the world. Most times, be it bug, Get the facts – Many start the season with aspirations of starting a vegetable or herb garden, but can sometimes be less than successful without the right information. The time to plant seeds varies with each plant and the seeds to start planting mid-April are mainly beans, cabbage, beets, cauliflower, lettuce and radishes. - almanac.com

bee or bigger, they don’t even “bug” us one bit and you don’t even know they’re there. Why not, instead of sole-smacking every insect or spider you see, put a glass over it, slide a paper under the glass and transport the little guy outside to his family and friends? Here’s the thing – bugs are living creatures. They can’t help they’re creepy and crawly. Imagine what they must think of you. So live and let live.

Dress it up – If you have an outdoor patio but have no idea how to change it for the new season, here are a few tips to give a whole new look to your home. Adding small things like a rug, a big umbrella or drapes/panels will give your outdoor patio a new dimension. - bhg.com

New shower design serves family’s needs Commentary by Larry Greene Original bathroom: This home located in the Bayhill subdivision on the east side of Carmel was built about 12 years ago. The homeowners have two sons, 25 and 30, and each has a disability. When they built the house, both boys were still walking, so they had their bathroom built with an Americans with Disabilities Act shower with wheelchair accessibility. As the boys became less able to maneuver on their own, the limitations of the original design became apparent. Shower drain problems: The only drain in the bathroom was in the center of the shower. Water from the shower tended to drain all over the bathroom floor with nowhere to go. The owners commented, “After years of dealing with soaking towels and a floor beginning to heave from the water, we decided it was time to renovate the space to better suit the present and future needs of our sons.” Special shower details: The homeowners worked with the design team to come up with a design that suited the needs of the family. The original shower/bath area was turned into one large, walk-in shower with a built-in bench

Before along the entire back wall. Two shower heads were installed in a space that can accommodate wheelchairs. Glass blocks were installed in the window area to allow light with privacy. In the previous design, the bench and floor were slippery when wet, making the space dangerous. The new shower floor includes flamed granite tile, which undergoes a procedure that pops the crystals off the granite, giving it texture so it is not slippery. To deal with the drainage issue, a linear drain was installed against the back wall under the bench, allowing the whole shower floor to be gently sloped back, rather than creat-

After ing a bowl-like effect to a center drain. Final results: The homeowners commented, “The new design works very well for our sons and we were able to keep the original wallpaper and colors, which they liked.”
