UP FROM DOWN UNDER CarmelFest 2008 chair Gary Frey has whipped his demons by immersing himself in volunteering. By Steve Greenberg For Current in Carmel Gary Frey understands full well from whence he has traveled, and he’s not going back. Ever. The chairman of CarmelFest 2008 is “just living the dream, baby,” but it is no delusion. It’s not so far back to the isolation he endured as a child. He was reared outside Terre Haute in a four-room concrete-block house. “We had two coal stoves and no indoor plumbing, and it was 100 feet, regardless of the weather, to the outhouse,” Frey, 60, matter-of-factly tells a listener. “We took sponge baths. In winter, the walls would ice over from condensation. But we had food and electricity as well as a propane stove.” Frey and his now-deceased parents, Fred and Lorraine, and his sister, Marilyn, lived amongst the corn and wheat fields, but there was no farming to be done. The coal piles and the fields were Frey’s playgrounds. He would climb the coal or grab a bat and ball and swing for the future into the crops. It wasn’t baseball that was his target; it was, rather, a way out. His friends were few, and he finally enjoyed his first shower when he went to the former Terre Haute Garfield High School, but he had “this vivid imagination. I lived in my own little world.” So, as it turned out, did his father, and Fred’s little world was fueled by booze. “He was a heavy drinker and a smoker, and he never talked to us unless he was drunk,” Frey says. “Mom was a stay-athome mom...[and was] very depressed most of the time. She and my dad were made to marry because (Lorraine was pregnant with Gary).” When Frey was
in the eighth grade, Fred and Lorraine divorced. “Mom moved into the city, married a guy, moved away and then died. I never saw her again. This happened when I was 17,” he says contemplatively. Frey was exposed to the idea of college while at Garfield, and since he didn’t want to work as a factory laborer as his father did for Winslow Scales Works, Indiana State University seemed to be the ticket. In his junior year there, he rented his first apartment, never again to return to the little block house by the fields. Freedom and his dreamer nature conjoined. One thing led to another, and then the heavy drinking began. “Truthfully, I majored in booze and girls. The dean asked me to leave, and then I got drafted,” Frey says. “I knew I was wasting time and money.” Although he never was shipped out for the Vietnam War, he served nearly five years in the U.S. Army, rising to the rank of first lieutenant, and another two years in the National Guard, for which he was a captain and a trained member of the Airborne Special Forces. “It’s the best thing that ever happened to me. I learned leadership. Look, I was afraid to ask for dates, but (soldiers) would follow me. It gave me a lot of confidence, and I went back to school and got my degree in business management.” He worked in sales and sales management for a time, was a minister for a small, non-denominational church in the mid-1980s and became a Christian in the mid-’90s. “It was a calling. How do you know? You don’t,” he says. He then became discouraged when his dream of building a church got derailed, became too egotistical, made a ton of mistakes and got humbled. Mightily. It cost him his marriage in 1994. “I wasn’t thinking clearly, and again I turned to women and alcohol,” Frey says. “I had my most disappointing decade from 1994 to 2005. I was a lost puppy... I’d always had a struggle with alcohol. I’d hated my dad. He was abusive. I vowed I’d never be like that, but alcohol became
my medication of choice. I was a pretty heavy drinker. I had a DUI, and Judge (Gail) Bardach (the former Carmel City Court judge) hammered me but good. That was my ‘rock bottom.’ I asked myself, ‘Is this what is going to define you the rest of your life?’ The answer was, ‘No.’ ” Today Frey, who owns American Insurance Solutions, is as optimistic and as “everywhere” as he can be. “I now can bring something to the room,” he says, crediting the opportunity to volunteer for CarmelFest, the Carmel International Arts Festival and many other initiatives for pulling him into the now. “I was a social recluse, but not any longer. No more plodding through life,” he says. “I have great relationships with my kids now, I’m a grandfather, I have more friends than ever before and I get to contribute to the community, especially with CarmelFest, which portrays this community at its best.” Any secrets? Frey pauses, then says: “Just this: Live in the present moment and enjoy what God has given us. It’s a new experience for me that never will get old.”

OUR TAKES It is our position that the explosion of spyware represents a new, nefarious subtext to the wonder that is technology.

extensive computer downloads, upgrades and information/data collection to function. What goes on as the Apple folks are uploading and downloading is a mystery to most. Honestly, they like it that way. Even as we are bombarded by the media with news of privacy data breaches, it is surprising that some of the worst invasions of our privacy occur soon after we hit “OK” to that 75page licensing agreement online. There may well be a time and a place for targeted marketing ploys and devices, but they must come with clear, simple notice and escape option with each occurrence.
It is our position that Central Indiana needs its own airline presence. With the sad departure of American Trans Air (ATA), Indiana lost its only true carrier. More was lost on this sad day than just another in a list of Indiana businesses to go under: We all surrendered a tremendous freedom and flexibility and even businesses’ clout. It has long been the contention of many Indiana entrepreneurs that two key environmental factors hold back the growth of investment in the heartland: (1) lack of participation in daylight savings time, (finally addressed by our own Rep. Jerry Torr and Gov. Mitch) and (2) inability
to get into or out of Indianapolis on a direct flight. These days, one is hard pressed to find a direct flight to anywhere other than hub cities. In addition to the lack of scheduling flexibility and competitive pricing, Indianapolis is about to debut a brand-new airport terminal. This community asset carries an astonishing price tag north of $1 billion. That investment of public funds to service puddle-jumper airlines to larger and more “worthy” cities does not seem to be well placed. We need an aggressive local player willing to serve this market.

FROM THE BACKSHOP ‘the Hillary‘ ran stRongly Begrudgingly, we’re compelled to give credit where it is due. The Hillary (along with The Bill and The Chelsea) blanketed virtually every parcel in Indiana, which, no doubt, helped to fuel her victory in last week’s primary. Compared to Barack Obama’s campaign, this approach seemingly had Holy Grail-like power. We suggested weeks ago that he needed a testosterone booster shot or would risk losing the state. Heh-heh, right again! The silver lining here, for those of us inside the “O Ring,” is that she won’t have enough delegates–regardless of the outcomes of the remaining primaries–to make it to The Big Dance in November. (Time to put the voodoo doll away, we suppose. It was fun while it lasted.)
way around than before Daniels assumed control, tell us why. All we’d like to see him do more of at this juncture is rid state government of excess (in terms of overpaid and extra workers and over-funded programs). Lookit, this guy doesn’t NEED the job and the headaches that come with it. The fact is, he loves his work and his state, and we’re all better off for having him at the helm. Jill Long Thompson? Puh-leeze!
We don’t get it. At all. Gov. Mitch Daniels has done more to fix this formerly struggling state’s ills in quite a short amount of time, and his popularity is plunging more quickly than did the Titanic? Are you serious? If you really don’t believe Indiana is better off (almost) all the
Admit it. You crossed party lines, too. Hell froze over. You looked for that lightning bolt coming out of the gymnasium ceiling the moment you declared yourself a “D” for the primary election. Strange feeling, eh? It won’t reprise itself in November.

READERS’ VIEWS ‘CURE THE VIRUS NOW!’ Editor:
You guys were dead on with your Backshop, Where Does It All Stop? (Current, May 6.) The part-time Carmel City Council doesn’t deserve paid health benefits nor does anyone deserve adoption benefits when the taxpayers are footing the bill. The people are well paid for the jobs they do. It seems that government today is no longer “FOR THE PEOPLE,” but is for itself. Greed has taken over our local govern-
ment as well as our national government. It seems that once these people get into office, they want to take all they can before they get out. The people need more say as to what goes on when it comes to our tax dollars. They say this is the “Land of Taxes,” and I agree. Bad policies come from bad politicians, and this country has developed a virus of it. We need to find a cure fast!
Tom Walden 46032
RILED BY HEALTH PLAN Editor:
I am upset, and I totally agree with your comments on taxpayer-funded health benefits (Current, May 6) for Carmel City Council. How many private employers in this area offer benefits for part time workers? I recall that Starbucks does, at least for now. If Carmel is going to add City Council members to a health care plan at taxpayer expense, then what about adding benefits to the many part time workers in other public sectors? One such group is Carmel Clay Schools support workers. They work just as hard. Some would argue
that working in our school cafeterias, for example, is twice as hard work as shaking hands and kissing babies at the Monon Center. Yet, none of them is offered any benefits of health coverage or even the opportunity to buy coverage on their own through the system. I support everyone being able to obtain affordable health coverage at a fair price. But let’s be fair with our tax dollars and help all part-time public sector employees, not just a select few on city council.

meeT VoLunTeers â€œHi! Weâ€™re Doug and Kay Thompson, lifelong Carmel residents who have been married to each other for nearly 30 years. This is only the second activity weâ€™ve tackled together where we actually agree on most things! Itâ€™s our fourth or fifth year, but whoâ€™s counting? One of us is, by nature, very logical, analytical, and decisive; the other is creative, emotional and subjective, so we sort of fit together. Can you guess which is which? We make the tough decisions on who to put in the arts and crafts, or Marketplace area, and in the Business Showplace Aisle at Carmelfest. Every applicant has a unique story. Which ones will the crowd like this year and support? Wow, itâ€™s tough, but fun! We hope you like this yearâ€™s vendor participants!â€?

FOR THOSE LOOKING TO START INVESTING: If you’re starting out, hire the best professional help you can afford. Professional advice will likely pay for itself within a short period of time. Once you become used to the market, do the research yourself. Later on in the game, switch to an online broker, but don’t expect your broker to recommend stocks that will double in value within a few months. If you do have a stock that goes up considerably--50% or more--sell. – Askmen.com

WHAT’S IT WORTH? MY OPINION:
$580K Type: Historic Built: 2000 Location: Near Rangeline Rd. and 116th Street Neighborhood: Rosemeade Commons is a very interesting, winding, mature-treed, single-street neighborhood with homes that you typically only see downtown in Indy’s Historic North side or in the Village of West Clay. Square footage: 4100 square feet on three above-ground levels Rooms: This 4-bedroom home has 3.5 baths, an open kitchen with hearth room, main floor office, formal dining room and third-floor recreation room. There is no basement, but there is plenty of storage in the walk-in crawl space. Strengths: The key strength is that it is completely different from the typical home in this area. The architect designed it to be a replica of a home built in Georgia in 1884. The covered porch

The answer to pain relief doesn’t have to come in pill form. It can actually come in the steel-coiled sole of a Z-Coil shoe. Brian and Stacy Noss are the owners of Z-Coil Pain Relief Footwear on Rangeline Road. The shoes they sell are made with a steel coil in the sole of the shoe. “Some people

Challenges: At this price range, the kitchen countertops will likely require an upgrade to granite prior to selling. Comparable homes have a 3-car garage. The trees and landscaping as well as the half-acre lot provide separation from 116th Street; however, the close proximity to the entrance may be an issue for some buyers.

come in and say the shoes look weird, but that’s alright with me. Some people thought Crocs looked weird, but now everyone is wearing those shoes,” Noss said. Each pair of shoes is customized for the customer. Many of Z-Coil’s customers are seeking relief from the pain of injuries. “If someone has a different position of their heel when they walk, we can adjust the coil to help combat that,” Noss said. According to a pamphlet available at their Carmel location, the coil in the shoe absorbs 50 percent of the impact that normal walking or running delivers to the body. “The best part of this job is knowing that I’m making people feel better and live a better life,” Noss said.
MONEY MATTERS Do you own your home free of mortgage? If not, when do you plan on paying it off?

am a guy who’s all about outcomes-getting to the answer. I’m sure I haven’t seen it all yet, but after almost 25 years in business, I’ve seen lots. Not everybody is all about the outcome. As a matter of fact, an alarming number of people aren’t that way. Why is this? Do people have a genetic predisposition that causes this? A friend of mine calls it “getting in your own way.” I think that’s fairly accurate. For some reason, we humans have an Kent Burns alarming tendency On Success to land ourselves in behavioral patterns that lead us nowhere we’re interested in going. If we do it long enough, we sometimes even forget where we’re going. It happens to you, it happens to me, and some people have chosen to make it a way of life. A former boss and mentor of mine used to counsel me to keep my eyes on the prize. He taught me the power of focusing on the objective–the answer, if you will. The question that he continually
“Is what you are doing getting us closer to the prize?” challenged me with was, “Is what you are doing getting us closer to the prize?” It was a simple, powerful way to keep us focused. This doesn’t just apply to business. It applies to your whole life. Decide what outcome you seek, and then become ruthlessly focused on it. Then–and this is absolutely critical–you must correct where necessary: adjust your efforts and commitment levels continually. This is where most people fail. They don’t have the vision to see that they’re not getting closer to the answer, and then they don’t have the discipline to either row the boat faster or in a different direction. Don’t be someone who engages in the same misdirected, unproductive behaviors over and over again with the expectation of getting to the prize. You’re better than that.

children misbehave for many reasons
ast time I covered two of the four categories of why children misbehave based on the findings of http://nancywatters.com. I covered the physical and cognitive categories (see Current In Westfield-April 29 Edition). PHYSICAL REASONS– hungry, tired, sick, reaction to weather, physically stressful situations, sensitive to tags in clothing. COGNITIVE REASONS – curiosity, lack of understanding, lack of Becky Kapsalis knowledge, lack of Ask YiaYia experience or training, frustration from inability to do a task, child wants to be helpful but isn’t skilled, bored. Again, most behaviors are learned behaviors, and all behaviors are need driven. The final two categories of why children misbehave are Emotional and Spiritual.
EMOTIONAL REASONS THAT CHILDREN MISBEHAVE:
Attention (child feels invisible, apart; needs love, belonging, importance, recog-

nition, appreciation). Power (child feels bossed, angry; needs independence, controlled choices, to be responsible for own choices). Revenge (child feels embarrassed, hurt; needs respect, fairness, companioning). Display of inadequacy (child feels inferior, hopeless, incapable; needs patient teaching, realistic expectations, opportunities for success, trust in self, and attitude that mistakes are opportunities for learning). I tell my own kids and grandkids that if we never made mistakes, the eraser would have never been invented. Scared, fearful, anxious (child needs to feel protected, to have the safety of clear boundaries, consistency). Situation stress, tension (child needs understanding, honest communication, be made a part of the solution without blame or excuses).
SPIRITUAL REASONS WHY CHILDREN MISBEHAVE:
Meaningless—Needs to know, “What is the meaning of life?” Insignificant—Needs to know, “What are my special gifts?” Aimlessness—Needs to know, “What is my particular contribution in this world?” Separateness—Needs to know, “How can I feel at peace with others? That I belong?”
These reasons are but a beginning to our understanding of our children’s needs at any age. We are not immune from experiencing these same reasons for our own adult behaviors, but when we recognize them in ourselves, we can understand and help our children understand them. Hugs! Have a parenting topic or question? Submit it to Ask Yiayia, aka Becky Kapsalis, Certified Parent Coach, at email@example.com or call 810.9358.
High blood pressure? Try figs. Six fresh figs have 891 mg of blood pressurelowering potassium, nearly 20% of your daily need and about double what you’d find in one large banana. In a recent five-year study from the Netherlands, high-potassium diets were linked with lower rates of death from all causes in healthy adults age 55 and older. Figs are also one of the best fruit sources of calcium, with nearly as much per serving (six figs) as 1/2 cup of fat-free milk! —prevention.com
n general, posture is a problem with most people. Primarily, we are a sedentary society. Since the arrival of computers in offices, we’ve become slouchers and sitters. If you consider that only approximately 15 to 20 percent of the population engages in some form of exercise, we’re staring down the barrels of future orthopedic problems. Slouching puts pressure on your vertebrae, ultimately compressing discs, which makes you John Karesh defenseless to back Fitness pain. Pelvic muscles lose tone, which makes it more difficult to support a wellaligned stance. Nerves in your neck are pinched, too, tightening muscles there and causing headaches. Here’s how to safeguard your posture: 1. When sitting at a desk using a computer, raise the monitor to eye level. 2. Take breaks every hour to stretch. You may use the corner of a room or a doorway to stretch your shoulders, neck and back. While you’re at it, take a water

SMOKING OUT THE RISKS The federal governmentâ€™s new advice to doctors for helping smokers quit recommends the drug, Chantix, which has recently been linked with depression and suicidal behavior. The new guidelines mention the psychiatric risks but also say the popular Pfizer Inc. drug is the most effective at helping people get off cigarettes. The guidelines mention other options, too, and highly recommend combining counseling and medication. But doctors are encouraged to talk to all smokers who want to quit about trying medication.
