Around town Local bakery lets customers eat elaborate cakes COMMUNITY

By Matthew Williams • editorial@youarecurrent.com

If you want things done right, sometimes you have to do it yourself. What started off as an answer to a simple problem has turned into a 30-year career for Rascia Johnson, owner of Rascia’s Creative Cakes in the Carmel Arts & Design District. Johnson said that when her kids were growing up, she wanted them to have the “most magnificent birthday parties,” but at the time, elaborate cakes were hard to find. “There wasn’t a lot of focus on cakes,” said Johnson. “You would go to the baker and you had white or chocolate, maybe yellow. There wasn’t a lot of diversity. If you wanted something extreme, you had to come up with it yourself.” So Johnson decided to take matters into her own hands, literally. She started making elaborate cakes for her children’s parties and even spent a few years working with other bakers to learn decorating techniques before eventually opening her own shop.  Rascia’s Creative Cakes opened in South Bend, Ind., but Johnson decided to move the shop so she and husband, Bob, could be closer to their two sons and two grandsons. The store is now located at 328 W. Main St. in Carmel, where it has been since December. Johnson said she is happy to have her shop in its new location. “I love the Arts & Design District. It just drew me to it,” she says. “I’ve been watching this area for a few years now, and I love the way it’s evolved – I can walk down the street to the butcher or the tea shop. It’s just nice.” Johnson specializes in cakes for birthdays, weddings and other special events, and her cakes range from simple to elaborate. She has sculpted cakes of logos, pets and famous landmarks – a wedding cake modeled after the Empire State Building is one of her most memorable creations. There isn’t much that Johnson won’t do with a cake. “It really depends on the customer,” she said. Recently, Johnson said she’s been approached by a storm chaser who wants her to make a tornado cake. In addition to cakes, Johnson sells cookies, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls and other treats. But she doesn’t just have treats for her two-legged cus-

CICF expands 21st Century Scholar program to Hamilton County – Legacy Fund, the Central Indiana Community Foundation affiliate serving Hamilton County, is spearheading the Hamilton County Twenty-first Century Scholars Enrollment Challenge, an incentive-based initiative created to increase the number and percentage of low-income middle school students that enroll into the program from 30 percent to 90 percent. The Challenge is modeled after CICF’s Marion County Twenty-first Century Scholars Enrollment Challenge, which increased enrollment of eligible Marion County eighth-grade students from 39 perecnt to 75 percent by rewarding middle school counselors and representatives with Simon Gift cards. An estimated 16 percent of all Hamilton County students meet income-eligibility requirements for TFCS. Johnson tomers – Johnson’s store also features a walk-up window for dogs. “It’s been really fun having the dogs stop by for a treat at our doggie walk-up window,” she said. “It’s getting to the point where they’re stopping as they walk by because they know they can get treats here.” Johnson said business at the new location has started slowly, but there have been improvements. “Every day we notice it getting better,” said Johnson. She expects business to pick up when the weather improves and as local festivals get underway. She thinks Carmel customers will enjoy her cakes for the same reasons that her South Bend customers did – “(My cakes are) high quality and taste as good as (they) look.”

Voter turnout up, but down By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Hamilton County currently has 191,852 registered voters. Of them, only 24.63 percent (47,250 people) cast ballots during the May 8 primary election. While voter turnout was low, Hamilton County Election Administrator Kathy Richardson said it was higher than last year’s municipal primary election of 14.62 percent. “I’m disappointed in the turnout,” said Richardson. “I don’t understand.” This year’s turnout was 21 John Accetturo percent lower when compared to the last presidential primary election in 2008, which had 46 percent. During 2008’s general election, Richardson said the turnout rose to 75 percent. She is optimistic that November’s election will see a much higher attendance at polling places. “It’ll pick up in the fall. It always picks up in the fall,” she explained. “The presidential general (election) brings out the most people.” Members of the public who did participate in the democratic system did not report many issues. Richardson said there were a few minor ballot machine problems in the morning, but

most issues involved voters reporting to the wrong precincts. “Everything went very well. We always have a lot of issues in regards to questions poll workers have,” she said. “We’ve been answering questions all day long.” The 2012 primary election saw all incumbent Hamilton County Republicans win re-election – and three other contested local races. For those voting on the Democratic ticket, there were no candidates outside of a few state and national contests. Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Keith Clock said the party has until noon July 3 to appoint candidates to challenge Republican nominees in November. “It’s always possible,” he said. “We’ll evaluate races and go from there. We’ll definitely try to give people a choice.” For more photos visit currentincarmel.com

COMMUNITY Philanthropy Camp for adults with disabilities needs volunteers Commentary by Jeff Worrell Not everyone can fill a need, even if they have the rare ability to first identify it. But some 25 years ago, Dick and Marcy Culter saw there was a void, an empty spot in the fabric of our society. Lucky for us, they decided something should be done about it. Having just transferred from Illinois to Carmel those many years ago, they quickly realized their new home community did not have a solution to meet the spiritual and emotional needs of their adult daughter, Joann, who has physical and mental disabilities. Joann was out of high school and facing limited opportunities for meaningful interaction with others. So, in 1991, the first SonRise summer camp welcomed 12 campers with disabilities and 12 youth counselors. This year, SonRise will attend to the needs of 280 challenged campers during eight weeklong sessions. Originally known as the Lutheran Disability Ministry, SonRise is now part of the Bethesda Lutheran Communities. Dick and Marcy did not stop at camping – they put together Bible study classes across central Indiana to meet the spiritual needs of people with disabilities. Four hundred participants meet on a weekly basis with the instruction and organizational manpower provided by local volunteers.

Annual Spring Cleaning Sale

As is so often the case, the program spawned more benefits than originally intended. Dick remembered the comments from a grateful parent after coming to collect his son after an early camping trip. The parent, not of a camper but of a youth volunteer counselor, said, “Dick, what have you done to my son?” The 15-yearold couldn’t stop telling his dad about seeing God’s love in action during his week “working” at SonRise. A servant attitude was born. The SonRise programs cater to adults, so adult volunteers are needed. Although high school and college students act as companions to the campers, many retired people are finding SonRise a rich and rewarding experience. The camp maintains a beautiful facility near Anderson, Ind., and the need for volunteers is ongoing. Dick and Marcy did their part. Joann, the inspiration for the camp, is also doing her part. She assists her parents by inviting people she meets to take part in the camping experience SonRise offers. One need filled, but another is born. SonRise volunteer hotline: 877-642-9902.

Dinah: A Bariatric Success Story. Most people who are good candidates for bariatric surgery have a lot of questions about the surgical and recovery process before deciding to undergo the procedure. Dinah — a recent patient at our Bariatric Center of Excellence — was no different. Dinah had tried countless diet and exercise programs before she started researching bariatric surgery. After evaluating her options, she decided to get in touch with the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence. “St.Vincent offers a level of care that is unmatched,” said Dinah. “They’re compassionate and professional in

Dinah prepared for her bariatric surgery by attending presurgical consultations and talking with a St.Vincent dietician. She also attended bariatric support groups at St.Vincent. Both of these experiences provided her answers to many of the questions and concerns she had about the procedure.

Take stroke seriously. Learn the signs and risk factors.

“The pre-op consultation was really helpful for me,” she said. “All of my doctors and specialists made me feel comfortable, and helped me understand everything I wanted to know about my procedure.” Since undergoing surgery, Dinah has lost 146 pounds and gone down 24 dress sizes. The experience has given her a newfound enthusiasm for life, allowing her to enjoy activities without feeling self-conscious about her weight. “The greatest thing about my surgery is how I feel,” she said. “I’m more active, self-confident and outgoing than ever. It’s been a huge change — for the better.” To find out more about the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence or, to find a seminar convenient for you, call us at 877-831-1582.

COMMUNITY Et cetera Portable breath test and the right to politely refuse Everyone knows at least one field sobriety test … count backwards keep your eyes on the pen, one-leg stand and the portable breathalyzer (PBT). But to which of these tests MUST you submit if stopped for a DUI? You may be surprised to know that you are not legally required to take any of these tests. In Indiana, driving is a privilege and not a right. This privilege requires something called “implied consent” and requires drivers to submit only to a certified chemical test if stopped for drinking and driving. Portable breathalyzers do not qualify as a certified chemical test and police officers may or may not inform you that the test is voluntary – nonetheless it is voluntary and only required if you are involved in an accident involving injury or death.

A certified chemical test may be given by blood or urine; however, it may also be by breath (only with a certified breathalyzer found in the police department.) The arresting officer has a three-hour window in which to obtain the chemical test. Whether the test is by breath or bodily fluids is at the officer’s discretion. Refusal to submit to a certified chemical test will result in an additional one-year license suspension. Driving while intoxicated charges are very preventable, and as the first line of defense against an arrest, everyone should know the rules. Carl Brizzi is the former Marion County Prosecutor. He now runs Carl Brizzi & Associates. You may contact him at carl@carlbrizzi.com

Carmel to put $11.4 million into roads this year By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com Carmel will spend $4 million to repave roads this year, the city council announced Monday night, with much of the funds coming from a reimbursement due to the city after a state accounting error. The city also plans to use $7.4 million in unencumbered funds from a 2006 road bond to accelerate improvements to Illinois Street. The first priority for paving will go to roads in West Clay, the council said, as part of the city’s contractual obligations to the area from the 2010 annexation agreement. A complete list of the roads scheduled for repaving is available online through the city’s Web site, www.carmel.in.gov, although city councilors were quick to note that the list is not a definitive guarantee that the allocated funds will be enough to repave all roads indicated. The decision ends uncertainty as to how the

For a complete list of the roads that will be repaved visit currentincarmel.com city would pay to repave streets in West Clay. Carmel hasn’t undertaken any non-emergency road paving projects in two years. According to Council President Rick Sharp, Mayor Jim Brainard wanted to use funds from the road bond – now allocated toward the Illinois Street project – for repaving. “It was a philosophical problem for some of us,” Sharp said. “We didn’t believe in doing maintenance with the credit card, which is basically what bond funds are.” Councilor Luci Snyder agreed. “We like to say: It’d be like buying a washer and dryer when you buy your house and putting them on your mortgage,” she said. “We like to only use bond funds for capital projects."

Peyton Manning announces Orchard Park as statewide winner – Peyton Manning surprised the Orchard Park Elementary School student body May 4 by announcing the school as the winner of the Project 18 Statewide School Health and Wellness Challenge during a special assembly.

The elementary school went beyond teaching the 18-week curriculum provided to all Project 18 registered schools. The students developed a healthy cookbook entitled “My Plate, My Choices.” The school hosted a health fair for students and their families, and throughout the year raised $25,000 for a walking track to promote physical activity. Orchard Park Elementary School also incorporated healthier menu options in the cafeteria. For additional information, visit www.project18.stvincent.org.

HOOSIER HOSPITALITY

by Cindy Roberts-Greiner Another year has flown by and it’s almost time for Carmel to host one of Indiana’s largest two-day festivals. But how can CarmelFest, an event that attracts thousands of visitors, run so smoothly from start to finish? With volunteers, that’s how! This year's Volunteer Committee Chair, Sally Bauer, is looking for 200-300 people to help make CarmelFest a memorable and enjoyable Independence Day celebration. Sally and her co-chair, Leanne Whtten, need volunteers to fill many different positions, including ice delivery, parking monitors, kid zone helpers, stage hands, spark button sales, runners, gophers and other miscellaneous roles. By donating a couple of hours of your time, you can take pride in helping to make the festival a success. As the new CarmelFest Volunteer Chair, Sally is taking over a role that Sherry Russell has managed for the last several years. When asked how she got involved in CarmelFest, Sally admitted, “Mayor Brainard joked that it was easy to recruit me as I am a transplant from Ohio and haven't been to CarmelFest yet.” But in all seriousness, she added, “As a new Carmel Rotarian, I wanted to get involved in community service and support the city.” Sally & Leanne are excited about heading up the CarmelFest Volunteer Committee and look forward to the challenge. Both agreed, “This is an excellent way to meet great people and help out at the same time. “

Cover story

Stephanie and Jim Yott with their children Olivia (front), Megan Weir (back) and Jessica Rushton. (Not pictured: Katie Rushton) (Photo by Jordan Fischer)

Jim and Stephanie Yott honor the memory of their daughter through the Emily Yott Foundation By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com Jim and Stephanie Yott understand what it means to have a sick child. In 2006, their then-1-year-old daughter Emily was diagnosed with leukemia. Through 14 months of treatment at both Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent, the Yotts say Emily’s ever-smiling nature kept them going. And when Emily died in 2007, they wanted to keep her memory going in return. With a grant from the Tony Stewart Foundation, which raises and donates funds to help care for critically ill children, the Yotts created an endowment in Emily’s name with the Legacy Fund. Still, they thought they could do more. “We just had so many people giving us money when Emily was sick and we needed it,” Yott said. “When your child is sick, sick enough that one of you can’t work … When families are in good times now, they’re having trouble paying their bills. Now imagine taking out a breadwinner. And that’s the last thing people should be worried about when their kids are sick. So that’s why we started the foundation.” Since its creation, the Emily Yott Foundation has helped almost 30 families and children suffering from cancer or other severe illnesses. Among those children is Hannah Christian, who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, in 2008. Her cancer, now in remission, eventually caused doctors to amputate her right leg despite several rounds of chemotherapy. In 2010, the Emily Yott Foundation, through funds raised by private donations, was able to assist in www.currentincarmel.com

paying for a new prosthetic leg for Christian. “We always knew we were never going to raise enough money to cure cancer,” Yott said. “My husband and I felt like that would have been drops of water in the ocean. So we decided early on to stay grassroots.” The foundation works with patients at both Riley Hospital for Children and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. “Both hospitals hold a special place in our hearts,” Yott said. “They both took such good care of Emily. We’re so lucky to have both of those facilities here.” Through fundraisers and donations, Yott says the foundation manages to bring in around $10,000 to $20,000 a year, all of which is given to families in need. “We always ask, ‘Is it worth it?’” Yott said. “But even if it just stayed at this level right now … I have four other children, and a granddaughter now, and (the foundation) helps us to not be so self-absorbed. It teaches our younger kids that there are people in the world in bad situations through no fault of their own, and there’s things we can do to help.” The foundation’s largest annual fundraiser, the Emily Yott Foundation Lemonade Stand & Carnival, will be held Saturday at the Village Farms Clubhouse, 453 E. Greyhound Pass, Carmel. The carnival features face painting, balloons, a bounce house and carnival games. Admission is $5 per child 12 and under, and parents can get in free. All proceeds go directly to the Emily Yott Foundation. For more information about the Lemonade Stand, or the Emily Yott Foundation, visit www.emilyyottfoundation.com. Current in Carmel

Emily Yott was diagnosed with leukemia shortly after her first birthday. After 14 months of intense treatment, including a stem cell transplant at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Emily died in May 2007. Emily’s parents, Jim and Stephanie Yott, wanted to memorialize their daughter in a special way by allowing her brief life to have far-reaching impact on other children facing life-threatening diseases. The Yott family created a charitable foundation in her memory and also an endowment with Legacy Fund of Hamilton County. Through The Emily Yott Foundation and the endowment with Legacy Fund, assistance has been given to children and their families that are forced to travel the journey of childhood cancer. The foundation also supports organizations whose focus is on helping families in this situation, including Indiana Canine Assistant Network, Riley Hospital for Children, A Special Wish Foundation and Peyton Manning’s Children Hospital. “Emily was a very special little girl who won the hearts of all who met her,” said her father Jim Yott. “She inspired adults and taught us how to live life to the fullest as only a child can, even in the face of disease.” “She always had a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye,” said Stephanie Yott, her mother. “We love her and miss her every day.” The Emily Yott Foundation has grown to more than $44,000 since its creation in 2007. To add to the fund, the Yotts have organized fundraising events, including a dance, silent auction and raffle and most recently Olivia’s Lemonade Stand. Olivia is Emily’s seven-year-old sister who has since caught the “fundraising bug.” “Emily’s life ignited a spark of giving that overwhelmed and humbled our family,” said Jim Yott. “That spark is now a flame that will burn in our hearts forever. We intend to ‘pay it forward.’” May 15, 2012 | 15

Buy local – visit a farmers market It is our position that farmers markets serve as a valuable community resource by providing an outlet for Indiana farmers and growers to earn a living by giving residents easy access to locally produced fresh food. The organic food industry has taken the nation by storm, sending a strong message by consumers that they want healthier food choices. Some of the best farmers markets in the state can be found in Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield and Zionsville. Farmers markets offer one-stop shopping for locally raised meats, seasonal fresh vegetables and fruits, honey, tea, pasta, bread, cheeses, pastries, flowers and much more. And, who can resist strolling around the farmers market with a bag of fresh, hot, sugary, salty kettle corn; a breakfast brat from the Kiwanis or freshly brewed ice tea?  Vendors range from local family farms and restaurants to church and civic organizations. The farmers markets also depend on hundreds of volunteers for setup, tear down, cleanup and crowd assistance. Outdoor farmers markets in Carmel and Noblesville begin Saturday, Fishers farmers markets begin May 26 and the farmers markets in Zionsville and Westfield begin in June. Support local food producers by visiting a farmers market this summer.

Uncommon request Commentary by Terry Anker

Why is it so often those who give the most require the least, even as those who rarely offer anything are abundant with needs? At a buddy’s birthday party, I caught up with a longtime friend that I’d not seen for ages. He’s the kind of human that falls into the selfless camp. He served us all in the first Gulf War and has continued to always work to make the world a better place. So, I was a little surprised when he asked me if I could take a meeting with him the coming week because of a favor he need to solicit of me. Asked if all was well, he naturally demurred, positing that life had never been better. With the arrival of the appointed day, we met and he shared his mission: to raise a little money to help some Vietnam-era veterans bring The Vietnam Veterans Memorial “Moving Wall” to Fort Harrison on Indianapolis’ northeast side from May 17 to May 21, to recognize the 30th anniversary of the conflict.

He earnestly recounted that these men and women were no longer young kids from newsreels. In fact, for many of them, this might be their last chance to join locally like this to recognize the sacrifice of those fallen. He reminded me that great wealth and military service rarely go hand-in-hand. Then, my friend, the decorated hero looked sheepishly across the table and added, “I wouldn’t ask for me, but these guys need the help; and I can’t do enough by myself.” Of course – I thought – he wouldn’t ask for himself. And neither would most of these folks. Isn’t that reason enough to want to give? VVA 295, P.O. Box 269279, Lawrence, IN 46226 is the address. Donations are tax deductible.

Here’s a chance to start summer off on the right note or foot – or both! – before summer actually begins. The Center for the Performing Arts and its artistic director, Michael Feinstein, are at it again. An evening of elegance and history making is on the near horizon, and we’re excited to be able to support it. You may recall the Center’s January 2011 sold-out gala that thrilled everyone in attendance. Well, on June 16, the Center is throwing the party of parties for this summer, another black-tie gala from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. The highlights of the night will be many, and they include a performance by Barry Manilow as well as his induction into the Manilow Great American Songbook Hall of Fame, whose other inductees include Alan and Marilyn Bergman and Cole Porter. Feinstein and other special guests also will perform. Put it this way: When Michael’s in the house, you never know what can happen. One thing’s for certain – it’s going to be a terrifically entertaining (and filling, considering the outstanding food and drink) evening. You can help the Center celebrate its wildly successful second season by being in attendance. To reserve tables, please contact the Center at its Encore Celebration Gala office at 819-3521. Organizers would appreciate hearing from you by May 24.

Help keep Carmel clean Editor, My husband and I made it our mission to pick up litter on Hazel Dell Parkway when the time allows and one thing we find curious is the fact that most people do pick up after their dogs and place the waste in the appropriate bags. However, we often find the bags are thrown along the fence or placed beside a post. These obviously are not biodegradable so it makes no sense to do this. Please take your little bag with you to dispose of appropriately. It would be

most appreciated and will make our little part of the world even more beautiful. By the way, there is always a need to adopt a small part of Carmel to keep clean by just bending down just to pick up discarded items. It is such a great way to get a little exercise and meet some great people along the way. Adopt a road near where you live and when you take a walk take a trash bag with you.

Another date with the dentist Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Oh. My. Lord. I cannot believe I had to go back to the dentist! You may recall from an earlier column that I have an irrational fear of dentistry, rooted in childhood trauma and a general lack of narcotics, and was trying desperately to postpone an appointment to have two cavities filled. Inspired by the bravery of my 10-year-old son, I eventually overcame my anxiety and managed to survive the unsettling procedure. One of the teeth I had fixed continued to bother me, even after a few days of expected tenderness. Naturally I ignored it and assumed I was just taking longer than usual to adjust to the ceramic material in the filling. A week passed, however, and the discomfort worsened. I began altering my diet to avoid aggravating the tooth further, cutting out sugary foods, crunchy treats and all taffy-like substances. Nothing helped. Subconsciously, I knew something was wrong, but I just couldn’t bear the thought of having to return to the dentist. I felt certain he would discover a missing filling or a cracked tooth or some sickening gum disease. In my denial, I preferred to suffer through a little toothache rather than learn the truth behind my pain. But as the days wore on and my entire jaw began to throb, I reluctantly realized I’d rather face the drill again than continue to eat only on my

left side and down Advil like jelly beans. (It was similar to my weighing the pros and cons of an epidural. For the first few hours of labor I found the contractions tolerable given my alternative was a needle to the spine. But when the real poo hit the fan, I would have let that doctor stab me in the eyeball if it made the pain disappear!) So I called the office and asked to be seen again, whenever they had an opening, preferably later in the week, next month would be fine. Wouldn’t you know they could take me that very afternoon? Frick! But no, I had to do it. As I drove to the appointment, I purposely chewed Hubba Bubba on the sore side to prevent myself from hightailing it straight to Starbucks – do not pass go, do not collect $200. I was hurting so bad once I got in the chair that I didn’t even have time to be nervous. Luckily, the problem was easily corrected without the need for topical anesthetics or arm restraints. Apparently my filling had not been smoothed down enough, throwing my entire bite out of whack. I basically freaked out over nothing. Ah, well, I lived to tell the tale, and that’s all that matters. Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at danielle@ currentincarmel.com.

Cutting remarks Laughs by Dick Wolfsie

I was thinking the other day about all the women in my neighborhood who mow their lawns. My wife has never mowed our lawn. I want to ask her about it, but I am afraid she’ll assume I want her to mow the lawn, which couldn’t be further from the truth. If she started mowing the lawn, it would jeopardize our relationship by altering the delicate balance between my wife’s independence and her femininity. Of course, if she really wanted to mow the lawn, I wouldn’t stop her. I’m just really curious why she won’t mow the lawn. When we first got married, we lived in an apartment – you just don’t see a lot of lawnmowing women in apartments. Then we moved to a condo and again there were few really good role models for her. When we bought a house, I started mowing the lawn and have mowed our lawn for 30 years since, whenever the grass has gotten too high or the dandelions needed their heads chopped off. Mary Ellen has never expressed any interest in this endeavor. I do vaguely remember her saying that mowing is man’s work and I should accept that. I think at the time I was changing Brett’s diaper and she was rewiring a lamp.

When I married Mary Ellen, her lack of mowing experience didn’t matter. After all, she was intelligent, beautiful, sensitive and caring. She was all a man could want. I assumed that if push came to shove, she’d mow the lawn. But it never even came to push. During the summer, I prefer to sit on a lounge chair and sip lemonade, but instead I have to cut the grass. That’s where a wife who’s willing to mow really comes in handy. Not that it’s that important. Just sayin’. Come to think of it, it’s chauvinistic for a man to make his wife mow the lawn. On the other hand, it’s also chauvinistic for a man to assume that a woman doesn’t know how to mow the lawn. Maybe she really wants to, but is afraid her husband doesn’t think she can do it. I’m sure that’s it. My friend Steve’s wife mows the lawn. He was over the other day and asked me why Mary Ellen never mows the lawn. I was as honest with him as I could be. “I don’t know, Steve. I never really thought about it.”

When dentists make the news Laugh by Mike Redmond And now, hold on to your hats because it’s time for … Dentists In The News! That might be the only time in history those four words have appeared together, in that order. Dentists tend not to make a lot of news. As a rule, they seem to be a fairly sedate group of professionals, at least compared to legislators, athletes and those wild-and-crazy middle school science teachers. When dentists DO make news, it’s big, like when these two made headlines recently: First was a dentist in London – England, not Ohio – who got revenge on her ex-boyfriend as only a dentist could. The ex, one Marek Olszewski, 45, scheduled an appointment with his former girlfriend, dentist Anna Mackowiak, for treatment of a toothache. She put him under and extracted the tooth. Then she extracted all his other teeth for good measure. Mackowiak is facing jail time and loss of her license for malpractice. Which, if you know anything of dental work in the United Kingdom, is more or less the standard anyway. OK, rinse and spit. Stateside, Lena David of Louisville is suing her dentist, Dr. W.B. Galbreath, for allegedly dropping a small screwdriver down her throat. I don’t know if it was a flat blade or Phillips. Acwww.currentincarmel.com

tually, the lawsuit doesn’t even specify what the dentist was doing in there with a screwdriver. Anyway, she alleges that the thing went down her gullet into her stomach, causing intense abdominal pain, which makes sense. Who among us who has swallowed a hand tool didn’t complain of intense abdominal pain? Her suit says the doctor sent her to the emergency room for X-rays and told her to try to bring the thing back up or to eat a lot of fiber, which raises the question: How many bowls of Raisin Bran would it take to move a screwdriver down the old alimentary canal? Wow. If I take anything away from these stories, it is relief – relief that these people are not my dentist, for starters, but also relief that the guy who does my dental work is competent, sure-fingered and not mad at me. He has his quirks – he’s big on making you laugh when your mouth is full of cotton, dental tools and fingers – but thanks to him, I still have most of the teeth I started with. It isn’t newsworthy. And that’s just the way I like it. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline.com or P.O. Box 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244.

Morning Meals Digging in to the best breakfast joints in your neighborhood

By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com We always hear people say, “There just aren’t any good places to go get breakfast.” While there certainly are fewer local restaurants specializing in breakfast than there are specializing in lunch and dinner, there are still tons of great options here in our communities. One favorite of many earlybirds in Carmel is Bub’s Café located just south of Bub’s Burgers & Ice Cream along the Monon Trail. Bub’s Café features an extremely inviting and cheery interior that matches the quality of its food. While the café prides itself on its Big Stack (12 pancakes), the menu also features a number of re-imagined breakfast staples including a favorite, the Bub’s Breakfast Bread Bowl (bread

bowl filled with fried potatoes, choice of meat, sausage gravy, two eggs and cheese). The Roost at Sahm’s in Fishers offers a wide variety of breakfast staples including a number of great omelets featuring ingredients like chorizo, red onion jam and Feta cheese. Although the Roost opens as early as 6:30 a.m. during the week, breakfast is served all day. Noblesville’s Best Bet Breakfast and Lunch is an interesting eatery with a casino motif. Featuring entrees like The Big Deal (three tacos filled with eggs and Spanish sausage) and The All In (a double order of fried potatoes mixed with three eggs, ham, sausage and more), Best Bet may have a smaller menu than other restaurants in the area but it sets itself apart with its unique offerings.

Film

Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans return as Thor and Captain America, respectively.

‘The Avengers’ starts the summer off right Commentary by Christian Sorrell During the past four years and across five different films, Marvel has been building the universe for the first live-action film adaptation of “The Avengers,” a long-running comic series. The film is a moment in Hollywood history that has never been accomplished or even attempted. It is a film that acts as a sequel to five of the largest-scale action films of the past several years. Already, it is apparent that Marvel’s plan has paid off. “The Avengers” set the record for the largest domestic opening weekend with more than $207 million in ticket sales. In the film, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) join together in order to save the earth from an attacking demigod and his cosmic army. The film does a great job of weaving together all of the previous films by featuring the villain of “Thor” using the device from “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Seeing all of these

characters (and actors) in one film is extremely exciting to behold. It reminds me of the type of fantasy films I would cook up in my brain as a child that never actually came to fruition. From beginning to end, the film is brimming with wonderful dialogue, incredible over-thetop action and a number of memorable moments of humor that you will have a hard time not repeating to your friends after the movie. “The Avengers” is a comic book film for both comic book fans and general audiences alike. It embraces its exaggerated comic book background while showcasing a number of wonderful performances that will leave you loving and rooting for all of the film’s characters. Don’t miss this one. It might be the biggest film event in years. “The Avengers” is out now in area theaters. Christian Sorrell is an avid film fan and the entertainment editor of Night & Day.

Phoenix’s ‘Avenue Q’ brings the laughs By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com

The Phoenix Theatre’s production of Robert Lopez’s and Jeff Marx’s “Avenue Q,” which finished up its run on Sunday, was an apt capturing of the puppeted satire keeping audience members rolling in laughter throughout. The musical has always held a special place in my heart not entirely undue to the similarities between its plot and my own experiences. Led by the idealistic Princeton (played by Ben Tebbe), a just-out-of-college puppet with a “useless degree” in English and a burning desire to find his purpose, “Avenue Q” tells the tale of a group of tenants in a New York apartment who’re all trying to figure out their purpose in life – with varying degrees of success. The Phoenix’s production featured a versatile performance from Claire Wilcher, playing both the lecherous-but-lovable Trekkie Monster and the lecherous-but-lustable Lucy the Slut. The latter puppet’s appearance strayed from the traditional buxom blonde into a more Kardashianesque figure with Day-Glo orange skin … and that might be more appropriate for today’s audiences. As ever, the Bad Idea Bears’ endearingly terrible advice kept audiences laughing. The puppets were played by Jason Gloye and Eric J. Olson, who doubled as Rod and Nicky, respectively, and each shared an unsettling resemblance to their puppets.

Emily Ristine as Kate Monster, left, with Ben Tebbe’s Princeton. (Submitted photo)

The real star of the production, however, was theater-veteran Emily Ristine’s Kate Monster, who brought a perfect mix of bookish naïveté and grab-life-by-the-horns enthusiasm to the character. Other notable performances included Diane Tsao Boehm’s dual role as Christmas Eve and Mrs. Thistletwat, Dakeisha Bryant’s downon-his-luck Gary Coleman, and Brian, played appropriately by R. Brian Noffke, who seemed not at all uncomfortable playing one of the few human characters on a stage of puppets. The Phoenix Theatre’s production of “Avenue Q” was directed by Bryan Fonseca and musical director Kevin D. Smith. The next show at the Phoenix will be “Forever Sung: A Celebration of Age in Song,” created by Bryan Fonseca and Tim Brickley. The show will run May 17-26.

Improvements in lip implants

Commentary by Dr. Barry Eppley

Q: I have gotten lip injections using fillers for the past five years. But after five years and more than a dozen injection treatments, I am tired of the expense and the hassle (pain!) of the lip injections. I have read that there are permanent materials for lip augmentation. What can you tell about permanent lip implants? A: Despite their existence for more than 15 years in the plastic surgery world, lip implants have never gained much traction as an everyday procedure, partly because of problems in implant design and materials and partly because of a general fear of having an “implant” in the lip. I have used every developed permanent lip implant available and have seen many of their benefits and potential problems. The newest lip implant, called PermaLip, is the best design and material that I have seen to date. It is made from a very soft and flexible silicone elastomer. Based on how it feels, it could easily be called the “Gummy Bear lip implant.” It has well-designed tapering edges, which is very important. The implants are done in the office under local anesthesia with some swelling and occasional bruising, which is largely resolved in a week after the procedure.

Saturday, May 19 10AM-5PM Free

Q: I was looking at some before and after tummy tuck pictures and was interested. I looked again the next day and I was able to get a closer look, and the scars are very big. I have decided I’m going to try and go to a center for weight loss and see how that works first. Approximately, how much does a tummy tuck with liposuction around the sides of the waist cost? A: While a full tummy tuck will solve the problem in a manner otherwise not achievable, the “price” to be paid for it is the trade-off of the a long horizontal scar. While the procedure is very effective, you have to be certain that this aesthetic trade-off is worth it to you. That is why I could not agree more that you pursue every nonsurgical option first and only consider surgery when you have become convinced that all other methods are not achieving what you want. Much of plastic surgery is about trading one problem for another – you just have to be certain that the other “problem” is more acceptable than what you have now. In the case of a full tummy tuck, that aesthetic trade-off is the scar. The approximate total cost of a full tummy tuck with flank liposuction is around $8,500, all costs included.

Everyone is a snowflake. Everyone is a thumbprint. Everyone is unique. But, far too often, we lose sight of our purest talents. It’s a common issue for organizations (and families) to overlook and misunderstand the talents and passions of their group. We all have natural instincts that were built in when we rolled off the line. As such, we all operate differently. We all do things differently. We approach problems from different perspectives, we like different things and we are, well, different. Understanding differences among people creates better relationships. Using that understanding and leveraging it creates more productivity. Here’s the pitfall: you are more inclined to like someone that sees the world the same way as you. Therefore, you are more likely to be attracted to those types of people. Sounds all good, but it can lead to a lot of not good. A bunch

of people gather around to solve a problem, each approaching that problem with the same perspective and same talents, and you’ve got a perfect storm – a perfect storm of inaction. Group a bunch of fact-finder, researcher types and assign them the same problem – they’ll research it to death. Put together a group of action-oriented, catalysts on the problem and they’ll toss around ideas until somebody dies. It takes a mix, a balance, and that’s hard to assemble since you generally like people just like yourself. You hire people like yourself. You socialize with people like yourself. Face it, you prefer yourself. Maybe greater productivity lies behind the walls erected by your self-preference? Maybe working with someone not like you will lead to more productivity? Maybe you should find out. David Cain works at Magnitude, a sales and marketing company. Contact David at David.Cain@ MarketMagnitude.com.

Renters insurance an important investment Commentary by Ryan Samuelson I’m getting ready to graduate and am fortunate to have found a job that is going to allow me to finally move out of my family home. Is renters insurance something that I really need?-Andy L. from Carmel Congratulations on the new job! Now it’s time to protect that paycheck with a renters insurance policy. People like to make a lot of excuses as to why they neglect to purchase a renters insurance policy: “I can't afford it,” “I don’t have enough stuff to insure,” “Nothing is going to happen to my stuff.” The liability protection alone is really enough reason to buy, but let’s break it down. The first thing you need to know about renters insurance is that it’s pretty affordable. A typical policy can cost less than $200 per year. That’s less than $4 per week. It’s worth the sacrifice. You are also in for a nice bonus if you already have car insurance. Many insurance carriers will give you a multi-policy discount if you package your auto and renters policy together with the same company. The second thing you need to know is that your stuff is much more valuable than you realize. How much would it cost you to start over if you had a total loss? Apartments burn down and get robbed just like houses do. Starting over after a loss like that is much easier when your

independent insurance agent drops off a check to replace all of your stuff. The last thing you need to know is probably the most important. A renters policy protects your financial assets by providing liability coverage. Liability insurance covers you for injury you cause to others and for damage to property that belongs to others. There are many ways to trigger a liability claim, so I’ve got some examples for you. Claim scenario A: You decide to play in a recreational softball league. While batting you hit a pitch back at the pitcher, putting him in the hospital. The pitcher sues you, and your renters policy steps in to defend you and settle the suit. Claim scenario B: You have some friends over for dinner. Your floor is wet and one of the friends slips and falls and requires medical treatment. Your renters policy steps in to pay for the treatment. The risk of going without this simple insurance coverage is not worth the couple of dollars a week that you save by not having it. Call your independent insurance agent today and make sure you’re covered!

Move the Needle – little things Commentary by CJ McClanahan During the past nine years, I have given out more than 250 copies of my favorite book, “The Success Principles,” by success coach and author Jack Canfield. Last week, I was blessed to spend a week with Jack, his staff and entrepreneurs from around the world. It was a great opportunity to learn new strategies for getting clear about what’s really important in our lives and achieving our goals. However, the most important lesson I took away from this week was very small. By that, I mean I learned (actually re-learned) that it’s the little things that always lead to the greatest successes. We are so tempted to chase after the new quick-fix solution that we completely forget that it is always about the fundamentals. For example, I just visited Amazon.com to see which book would pop up when I searched the word “diet.” Guess what was the No. 1 selection? “The 17 Day Diet – A Doctor’s Design Planned for Results.” Really? Seventeen days – are you kidding me? Every single person reading this article knows exactly how to lose weight. You eat less and exercise more. In fact, it’s even easier than that – all you need to do is burn more calories each day than you consume. That’s it. But, it takes time. A lot more than

17 days. However, if you follow the basics, you will get the results you desire. For me, the lesson I learned was equally simple. There are a handful of daily rituals that always lead to a successful and purpose-driven day. They include daily gratitude, affirmations and meditation. I am certain that putting these simple behaviors back into practice will lead to amazing results. Unfortunately, I had abandoned them over the past few years and guess what happened? It’s the same thing that happens to your midsection when you eat fast food and skip the gym. I drifted back into bad habits and got less than desirable results. As soon as I got back to the office, I got back into the routine. I know that it will take time before I see results. In addition, I am certain that there will be days when I wonder if it’s worth the effort. Yet, I know that if I commit to the little things, I will reap the big rewards. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Smartphone viruses on the rise Commentary by Ken Colburn Can my Android smartphone really get a virus from the Internet? - Joel The popularity of smartphones and tablets combined with the high rate of daily usage has made them an obvious target for malware attacks. In general, the Android platform has been and will continue to be the most likely to be exploited for two reasons: the open architecture and its market share (it’s now No. 1). Most existing malware designed to exploit smartphones has either been “proof of concept” applications developed by security firms or crudely written programs that require the user to download and install an infected app. For the most part, if you are careful about where you get your apps (Apple’s App Store or Google Play) and don’t “jailbreak” or “root” your phone to install apps that have not been approved by the vendor, you can sidestep most of the danger. Because Android phones can take advantage of “sideloading” apps, which allows the user to install anything they want from any source they want, they can also be exploited in this way. Lookout Mobile Security recently discovered that the age-old exploit used to infect computers called “drive-by downloads” is now being used to infect Android smartphones. It’s now possible to have an infected program slipped onto your Android smartphone simply by visiting a hacked

Web site that has malicious code, and you can count on this being just the beginning of this type of exploit. The good news is that it’s fairly rare and still requires you to approve the installation of the app to complete the infection. To avoid being a victim of this newest exploit, make sure your Android phone does not install apps from unknown sources (go to Settings/ Applications/Unknown Sources and make sure there is not a checkmark). If you are in the high-risk category (rooted or jailbroken phone and you install apps from outside sources) you might want to consider installing Lookout’s free security app (www.mylookout. com/download), which watches over your phone to alert you when suspicious activity is detected. Lookout might cause some performance issues as it becomes a constantly running overlord in order to protect you from yourself, so only load it if you think you need the extra protection. Smartphones are a fast developing arena that will continue to be targeted by the bad guys, so make sure you keep your smartphone updated (regardless of which platform you are on) and avoid installing any apps that you really don’t need.

New – Samsung recently unveiled a new phone they're hoping will give Apple a run for their money. The Galaxy X III features an 8-megapixel camera, as well as voice and eye recognition. - www.cnn.com Etiquette – Nothing is more annoying than having to watch a concert through a cellphone the guy in front of you is holding. To ensure you are not “that guy,” follow these courteous tips: Don’t take videos, don’t tweet constantly and definitely do not bring an iPad. - gizmodo.com

Help handicap children Commentary by Brandie Bohney While browsing Pinterest, I found a sign with the phrase that inspired this column's headline. I feel certain that the creators of this sign meant it to read, “Help Handicapped Children.” Surely there isn’t a group with the exclusive purpose of handicapping children. The sign got me thinking about the proper use of words like “handicapped” and “disabled.” Many people use these words very seldom and are therefore confounded when having to select the correct term. I did a little research (the volume of material written about this subject is staggering), and here’s the advice I can give: “Handicap,” as a noun, is most correctly used to describe a restriction a person encounters rather than a condition a person has. Numerous sources used an identical definition: “a physical or attitudinal constraint imposed upon a person, regardless of whether that person has a disability.”1 In other words, the handicap is temporary, whether it is a flight of impassable stairs or a rotten attitude. The term “handicapped” is considered offensive and should not be used to describe a person. “Disability” is also repeatedly defined by various sources using the exact same wording: “a condition caused by accident, trauma, genetics or disease which may limit a person’s mobility, hearing, vision, speech or mental function.”1 A disability is a more permanent condition rather

than an obstacle or limitation. The term “disabled” is preferable to “handicapped,” but the best way to refer to a person with a disability is just that: a person with a disability. The main thing to remember is that the person, not the disability, should come first. In other words, it is more appropriate to say that a person has epilepsy than he or she is an epileptic. The placement of the disability and use of words of personhood are important in making clear that the people who have disabilities are people first. In addition, it is also important not to refer to people of able bodies as “normal” by comparison to those who have disabilities. After all, what is normal to one person may not be normal to another. “Ablebodied” is a preferred term to “normal.” I would be interested to hear input from readers who have more experience with this terminology; my research was done entirely through legal and grammatical documents, and I’d be interested in real-word applications, as long as those applications aren’t signs advocating the handicapping of children. 1 Both definitions came from www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov, but exact copies of the definitions were found on numerous other Web sites.

Sin and God’s savings plan Faith by Bob Walters

the cross was a whole lot more involved, and important, than just forgiving and covering my many sins. Christ on the cross restored and reconciled the fallen world with the Creator God Almighty. At the cross – in grace, not transaction – the eternal destiny of all mankind was set upright. At the cross, everything changed. At the cross Christ restored our relationship with God, defined our proper fellowship with each other, defeated death, adopted us as children into the Kingdom of Heaven, revealed the truth and the true God, hastened the arrival of the comfort of the Holy Spirit and defined our human lives in terms of sacrifice, service and, most importantly, love. Christ gave us the peace of repentance, freedom from guilt and fear and blessed us with the joy of hope and fullness to replace the despair of regret and emptiness. And, oh yeah, our sins were forgiven, too. Don’t sell Christ short thinking His death was solely about sin. God’s savings plan is about a world full of sinners who need to be – and ought to be – loved.

Plenty of Christians look up and out from their Bible or church and see a world full of sinners who ought to be punished. Much of that world looks back at Christians, shakes its collective head and wonders, “If Christianity is about sin and guilt and fear and punishment, how is that better than the life I’m leading right now where I don’t judge anyone … and I don’t fear anyone or anything judging me?” I’m afraid I know this one to be true: a Christian with a heart full of zeal to save sinners can be the worst witness of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. That’s because, to the non-believing world, the suffering Christ on the cross is anything but a picture of love. And I know that any conversation that starts, “Let me tell about how Jesus died for your sins,” contains the presumption of condemnation, as in: “Hi, how do you do? You’re a sinner. You’re condemned. And this guy, Jesus, died for you.” Huh? I’d wonder, “Well, if that guy really died for me, why am I still condemned? And hey, who are you calling a sinner?” It is the Christian who is supposed to understand that the first and worst sinner he or she sees every day is the one staring back at him or her from the mirror. And as a believing, studying Christian, I know that Christ’s work on

WHAT IS DEBT SETTLEMENT? Debt Settlement is when you pay off debt at a reduced amount, often at 50% or less.

CARMEL | FISHERS | NOBLESVILLE | WESTFIELD

489.4444

www.youarecurrent.com

Annetta & Steve Goss, Aardvark’s Party Rentals

WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR DEBT SETTLEMENT? A small business or individual with $30,000 or more of unsecured debt, who has a 401K plan, an inheritance, or a lump sum distribution; as approximately half of debt amount must be set aside in escrow to settle debt when agreement is reached with the creditor. 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.

O E-Cycling program with secure data wipe

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.

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? To learn more, call Mike at 317-266-8888, email: mike@mikenorrislaw.com or visit: mikenorrislaw.com. MIKE NORRIS Mike is an Indiana Attorney who has been practicing law for 33 years. He is a former full-time professor of real estate law and business law at the University of Colorado.

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.

Michelangelo’s “Creation of the Sun and Moon” (Photo by Don Knebel

The sun and the moon Commentary Don Knebel

Our host for a recent meeting in Rome was a member of the distinguished Italian family that produced Pope Martin V. He was able to arrange a private tour of the Vatican Museums, ending at the Sistine Chapel. Allowed to wander freely, we saw both the familiar and the mildly shocking. Michelangelo’s most famous scene, in the center of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, shows God almost touching the finger of Adam. In 1990, F. Lynn Meshberger, who now practices medicine in Anderson, provided an alternative to the traditional explanation that God is giving life to Adam. While a medical student, he published an article demonstrating that God’s cape and various protruding appendages closely mimic the shape and structures of the human brain. He suggested that Michelangelo, who studied human anatomy, may have intended to show God giving Adam the gift of intelligence. That story, without the student’s name, is routinely told by Sistine Chapel guides. Near the end of our visit, my wife noticed a scene that was not called out by our guide. A panel over the altar, showing God creating the sun and the moon, includes what can most delicately be described as an undraped and provocatively directed male derriere, apparently that of God. Some speculate this scene was Michelangelo’s way of insulting Pope Julius II for making him spend four years painting frescoes when he wanted instead to be a sculptor. Others piously suggest Michelangelo was illustrating that people are not supposed to see the face of God, www.currentincarmel.com

which seems a stretch because God’s face is shown in the same panel. Perhaps there is no message – the Sistine Chapel ceiling shows a lot of uncovered flesh reflecting only Michelangelo’s virtuosity. Whatever its raison d’être, Michelangelo’s moon reflects an eternal truth: The greater the artist, the greater the mystery.

Decorating

Love is just the beginning Commentary by Vicky Earley

Find things you love and build around them. Designers will be the first to tell you that they’d rather not start from scratch. Their best work is a combination of what you love and what they know. - Karol DeWulf Nickell, Signature Style: Creating Beautiful Interiors Decorating a room requires falling head over heels in love with one stunning textile. That one textile is the catapult for the remainder of the design. More often than not, that incredibly beautiful fabric will come with an amazing price tag. Fear not – remember that it’s just one fabulous fabric and, when mixed judiciously with moderately priced fabrics, it elevates all the players in the room. When it comes to mixing, most homeowners are comfortable with pairing a pattern with a solid. Beyond that, the thought of adding more strikes to the heart of design cowardice, and that is where so-so and polished part ways. This inspiration fabric should have at least three colors, which can be blended with two or more additional fabrics. Vary the fabrics with contrast, texture, scale, sheen and pattern. • Contrast: Overall color of one fabric should be light, with one medium and one darker. • Texture: Choose fabrics with different textures, such as a smooth silk, a woven linen or velvet. • Scale: Vary the size of the patterns by including one large, one medium and one smaller pattern or solid. For example, you might choose a large paisley, a medium stripe in coordinating colors and a small embroidered pattern or a solid texture. • Sheen: Mix shiny and matte fabrics. • Pattern: Mix curvy and linear patterns, such as a floral or a toile and a check or plaid, with a third pattern, such as a small overall print or solid color. Experiment with different fabric samples

until you find a grouping that feels comfortable then decide where they will be used. Spread the fabrics around the room to create balance. For example, if you use your inspiration fabric for draperies in your bedroom, you might use the same fabric for a couple of throw pillows, shams or a headboard. The second fabric could be used as a duvet cover and for window shades and to upholster one chair. Your third fabric might be a luxurious solid linen that can trim the window treatments, make shams or throw pillows for the bed and cover a bench at the foot of the bed.  Don’t forget that your walls and floor coverings are additional areas for color, pattern and scale. Consider those elements, as well as the style and scale of your furniture, when planning a room. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel. If you have an interior design question, please contact artichokedesigns@aol.com.

Landscape – If you want to set up an easy landscape, it can be hard figuring out where to start, but working around a focal point or paying attention to simple sun and wind patterns will get you started. - bhg.com

Crash course on container gardening Commentary by Chris Arney

Are you limited on gardening space? Just about any plant will thrive when grown in a container. Understanding the basics of this type of gardening will give you a summer full of blooms and vegetables. Most importantly, use the proper sized pot. Match the container size to the mature plant size, not the seedling you are looking at. Small pots hold a limited amount of water, so unless you want to water several times a day, start with a large container. For large leafy plants like tomatoes, use at least a five-gallon pot. All garden containers need to have holes in the bottom for proper drainage. Most potting soil mixes will work well in a container garden. Potting soil is engineered to meet the unique demands of growing plants in containers. Avoid using garden soil or topsoil as the growing medium in your containers. Feel free to mix in some compost, but not more than 20 percent. Water your plants often. When watering, add enough until you see water leaking out of

the bottom of the pot. The soil will only hold so much water and the rest will drain away. Add a water-soluble fertilizer to your watering program twice a week. Mix the fertilizer at the labeled rate to avoid burning the leaves of your plants. There are many planter types available. Terra cotta pots are great, but plants in them tend to dry out quickly as the container actually wicks moisture from the soil. Plastic and concrete planters work great, however the latter can become extremely heavy once it is full. Feel free to get creative – old galvanized tubs, wheelbarrows, milk cans and jugs make fantastic garden containers. Adding a trellis is great for trailing plants like Mandeville, sweet potato vine and cucumbers. Container gardening can also accent your current landscape and garden.

Basement wine bar functions for whole family Remodeling by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BASEMENT: This home, located in the Woods at Grey Eagle subdivision in Fishers, was built as a custom spec home in 2005, and the homeowners moved in during 2006. According to the owners, “Although the basement was fairly nicely finished, we still wanted it more customized to our family’s needs. It was an alternative to moving – we took what we had and made it our own.” OPENING UP WALL: The wall separating the existing wet bar from the other finished room was opened up to provide a unifying feeling. New stained paneling was added to the back wall including a new French door opening to the theater room. A wrap-around granite countertop was added in addition to the wine storage wall included new wine racks, cubbies and cubes. The electrical upgrades include new pendants, recessed can lights and LED lights in the wine cabinets. WINE BAR DETAILS: The goal of the project was to turn the original plain wet bar into an expanded wine bar experience. The owner commented, “My favorite part of the new basement is the wine wall. It looks very custom and

Before fits the space to a 'T'. The trim carpenters and design team paid great attention to the details. They took a look at the style of the rest of my home, the details that the builder added, and incorporated these into the basement remodel. The custom moldings and even the door hardware were brought into the basement design. Someone first visiting our home would never know that the basement was remodeled – it looks like it was built at the same time as the rest of the house.” FINAL RESULTS: The homeowners commented, “We are using the basement every day. The

After kids like to go down there and sit at the bar to do homework or eat pizza. It is a quiet space for them. And we are planning to bring in a local wine store to host a wine tasting for our friends in our basement this summer.”
