Construction to add outdoor dining space on Main By Brandon Bowman Current in Carmel A $50,000 construction project will close down parts of Main Street between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m for three weeks, beginning June 6. The project will give local restaurants more outdoor dining space and improve the storm sewers located on Main Street. However, some street side parking spaces will be unavailable until the project is completed. Ron Carter, president of the Carmel Redevelopment Commission, said the original plan called for the project to
be complete in five weeks instead of three. “We re-thought the design after hearing from merchants and as a result they all seem to be pleased,” Carter said, adding the project will be less disruptive because work will be done at night. The three dining areas will be located outside of La Mie Emilie, Mudbugs Cajun Cafe and the Old Town Tavern west of Rangeline Road. One more additional space will be located east of Rangeline Road. The dining areas will be landscaped with low shrubs and fencing.
Vandals strike inside Palladium Current in Carmel Lt. Jeff Horner of the Carmel Police Department confirmed that the inside of The Palladium was vandalized sometime early last week. Horner said in an e-mail that CPD took criminal mischief reports last Monday morning regarding “random pictures and profanity” spray painted on the walls. Horner added the effects of the vandalism should only be temporary and short term, as the painting was done
in currently unfinished areas of the concert hall. The investigation was still ongoing as of press time. The 1,600-seat Palladium is the centerpiece of Carmel’s $150 million Center for the Performing Arts. Construction of the state-of-the-art hall is scheduled to be completed in November, followed by a three-month period for tuning the hall. Opening ceremonies for The Palladium are expected to take place in late January, 2011.
INDOT: U.S. 31 work construction will start on schedule in 2011 By Kevin Kane Current in Carmel According to information presented at an open house last week, construction to the section of U.S. 31 in Hamilton County is moving along according to plan. Officials from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) held an open house last Tuesday at Carmel High School. IDOT spokesman Will Wingfield said the last public meeting of this kind took place two years ago, so the purpose of the event was to remind residents of project details and reinforce that construction should begin on schedule, fully funded. Part of the state’s Major Moves initiative, construction on U.S. 31 will change the road into a limitedaccess expressway. The work on various interchanges and overpasses from Indianapolis to South Bend is intended to make travel on U.S. 31 easier, faster and safer for drivers.
Wingfield said crews are currently working to move utilities in Hamilton County and major construction is scheduled to begin next year with the completion of an interchange at S.R. 38 and the widening of the bridge at 146th Street over U.S. 31. Construction will continue on 146th Street and begin on 151th Street in 2012 and 2013. Wingfield said the sequencing of the construction plans for these streets was created with the intent of minimizing the affect on businesses in the area. The rest of the work in Hamilton County is scheduled to begin during or after 2014 and will likely continue through 2018. The estimated cost for the Hamilton County portion of the project is $435.2 million, down from an original projection of more than $473 million. “At this point this project is funded and these numbers have been approved by the governor,” said Project Manager Gary Pence.

It is our position that current debate on Capitol Hill regarding financial regulation ignores two important players: Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. What caused the recent financial meltdown and recession? President Obama blames bankers for the disaster, but this view might overlook the forest for the trees. Is a more accurate perspective that too many people were granted housing mortgages who couldn’t afford them? Politicians in D.C., looking for ways to buy votes from constituents, encouraged artificially low interest rates on mortgages, backed by the U.S. taxpayers, in case of default – loans the private sector would have denied. Times were good – low unemployment, housing prices at an all-time high, stock market gains in an everlasting uptrend. The mortgage securitization industry eagerly bought subprime mortgage paper and used the loot to speculate on the market. Now bankers are being blamed for a mess the federal government created if not certainly enabled. Freddie Mac is seeking $10.6 billion more in federal aid. Like the health care bill, the new financial regulation bill puts a bandage on a spreading cancer. Shouldn’t Freddie, Fannie and our elected officials be held to the same accountability standards as the banking industry?
It is our opinion that the youth of Hamilton County should pay close attention to the recent lessons demonstrated by their peers. As has been widely reported, the fair city of Carmel has found itself host to some deeply troubling events of late. Hazing – sex crimes – we choose not to rehash the details. But are these important messages being received and embedded in our youth? Errors in judgment (and even criminal behavior) occur all too frequently. There should, and will be, repercussions. Will we learn from these examples? Children believe themselves invincible. Many would argue that recent generations have also developed a false sense of entitlement. Together, these are a dangerous combination. Rather than allow this combination to continue to develop, parents should discuss these events with their kids, not hide from the topic. Some might argue that our community must address its own hubris. Conversation alone will not end bad behavior. Some must still touch the stove to learn that it is hot. However, discussing these issues and inviting open dialog about such topics can only help. Engage, and make sure our future generations (and our present leaders) know that learning from mistakes can be just as important as avoiding them altogether.

Don't live your life as a victim
From the backshop No question: Palladium is in excellent hands Having worked closely with the team at The Palladium the centerpiece of the emerging regional project, The Center for the Performing Arts, we must say we are continually impressed with how the place is run. Executive Director Steven Libman and his team, including Public Relations Manager John Hughey, are tackling a Herculean task with grace and levelheadedness. The Palladium and the adjacent City Center development is an extraordinary and visionary effort by the city of Carmel, and it’s reassuring to know it’s in such capable hands. ••• Ah, summertime, and the living will be anything but easy for the officials and administrators of Carmel Clay Schools and the high school. We hear there will be activity aplenty in legal offices, and perhaps the Hamilton County prosecutor’s office, as the aftermath of the CHS hazing/bullying scandal continues to unfold. ••• Have you heard the story about Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak, who defeated incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, admitting that someone in the Obama administration offered him a job if he dropped out of the race? If true, this is a felony; using ex-
Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg ecutive branch funds for political purposes. ••• We applaud U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent comments regarding the sinking of a South Korean warship, which has been blamed on North Korea. Clinton told reporters the attack that killed 46 sailors was an "unacceptable provocation" by the North and the "international community has a responsibility and a duty to respond." We agree. ••• CORRECTION: Our item in last week’s column inadvertently misidentified the champion of immigration reform for Indiana. State Sen. Mike Delph (R-29) is the lawmaker we’re solidly behind in bringing order to the nonsense that exists today. We apologize for the error.
COMMENTARY By Terry Anker These past several weeks and months, our collective egos have taken a hit. All of us in Hamilton County are being pinned with the scarlet letter because of the reprehensible, irresponsible and likely criminal actions of a few of our own young people. (And subsequently, the insinuations and accusations about the officials from Noblesville to Carmel charged with carrying out the investigation.) Carmel has taken the brunt of the hate-filled innuendo, including allegations of cover-up and pay-off. Some of that goes with the territory. We live in a nice place. We care about crime. And we rabidly defend our youth. Is the commitment that leads to off-the-charts parental participation in school the same quality that lead to this fervent defense of those same kids, schools and administrators? I, for one, remain confident that the truth will be told. (At the very least, I am confident that the many versions of truth brought forward
will be expressed and an honest attempt to reconcile them will be made.) Some careers will be irreversibly altered; some lives will be redirected in ways that are, at present, unimaginable. No doubt. But, how will we digest the inevitable changes that are occurring? Will our community learn and improve? Or will we imagine ourselves to be victims of the intense (perhaps unjustified) pressure of distant onlookers? Will these youngsters be defined by this instant in their lives? Will they recover and redirect? Or, as seems all too often the course, will they live the rest of their lives as victims? Bad things happen. Life can be unfair. Many will claim victimhood – some rightly; others not so much. But can one live a full life in the shadow of that label? And why would one want to?

Commentary By Danielle Wilson This just in! I am not Supermom. I repeat, I am not supermom. I know, it’s shocking, and no one is more surprised than I. Here I’d been thinking I was pretty cool. Four seemingly well-balanced children, a loving husband, and a successful pseudo-career as a daycare provider-slash-weekly columnist, plus the several mutant genesrequired of all comic book heroes: red hair, twin, Democrat. Wonder Woman, watch out! But what happened at the first sign of real stress? I collapsed into a driveling coward, completely incapable of functioning on any level above the walking dead. Before we moved in with my in-laws, see, I’d truly believed I’d sail through this homeless experience unscathed. They have a great house with plenty of room, they’re easy to live with, and they are as generous with their time as they are with their home. Most importantly, they understand and respect boundaries, even if those lines inconvenience them or their lifestyle. And actually, the first week went fairly smoothly. We got the kids settled in, laundry and food organized, and computers and separate TV viewing areas all set up. But somehow, despite our careful planning, last week nearly sent me to the looney bin. The fatigue, short temper, irritability and depression were so acute that I even gave serious contemplation to the idea that I was pregnant, even though my husband was successfully snipped six years ago. Mother’s Day, which should have been amazing – as I was going to Louisville by myself to throw a shower for a best friend finally pregnant after seven years of infertility and getting a free haircut at a swanky salon – was absolutely miserable. I cried twice on that day alone, bringing the weekly total to four, double my
r i v a t e
normal annual saltwater output. I kept taking my temperature to see if I was sick, thinking a viral infection might help explain my poor sleeping and general malaise. Hel-lo! Not only am I not Supermom, but I’m none too bright either. I wasn’t having a miracle baby, nor did I have mono; I was just stressed out to the bejeesus and having trouble dealing with losing control over every single element of my life. Added to that, I was unable to simply allow myself a moment to be human. Because even under the best circumstances, this would be hard on anyone, even Supermom. And I think it might actually be worse for people like me who are so used to being on top of things. Without a home to clean, organize and spend my days in, I’m a bit of a lost soul, who doesn’t know exactly what her role is anymore. Am I a mother or a house guest? Am I a wife or a daughter-in-law? I can’t seem to figure out where I fit in. So I shouted at my kids, was mean to my husband, and gave everyone else the cold shoulder. In the evenings, I mutated into some hideous combination of Rainman and Hitler, barking orders to complete homework and get to bed. Mornings weren’t much better, as I herded my kids to the van and off to school, growling about being late and incessantly nitpicking their choices of clothing. I was morphing into a supervillian. Luckily, this week, I’m feeling a bit more normal. I’ve been able to take a deep breath and remind myself I am only human. Peace out.

Multi-talented designer brings work to Hamilton County
500-seat theater named for Tarkington Current in Carmel The Center for the Performing Arts’ Executive Director Steven Libman and Civic Theatre Executive Director Cheri Dick announced last week that the Center’s 500-seat proscenium theater – the future home of the Civic – has been named The Tarkington. The name, determined by leadership from both the Center and the Civic, was selected as an enduring tribute to the legendary Hoosier novelist and playwright, Booth Tarkington (July 29, 1869 – May 19, 1946), who wrote several original plays for the Civic stage in its early years. During the 1949-1950 season, the Theatre’s name was changed to the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre of Indianapolis, Inc. as a tribute to the world-renowned author. “The naming of this beautiful new theater was the ideal opportunity for Civic to pay homage to Booth Tarkington who made such a profound impact on Indianapolis, the state of Indiana and the arts community at large,” Dick said in a statement. “I can think of no better way to honor this prolific author and the storied past of Civic Theatre than by hailing its new home as Booth Tarkington’s namesake.” Civic Theatre will be the principal resident theater company of The Tarkington and will also have access to the 200-seat studio theater, as well as rehearsal space, classrooms for education programming and administrative offices. The Tarkington will be ready for use by August 2011, just in time for the start of Civic’s 2011-2012 season. Currently, the Civic is nearing the start of its 96th season overall and its last at Marian University in Indianapolis. Civic is the largest of more than 70 community theaters in the state, but Dick and other Civic administrators have said the move to Carmel will help make the theater bigger and better than ever. “The Tarkington is a unique performance facility, providing a proscenium theater at the Center for the Performing Arts complex,” Libman said in a statement. “From a purely functional standpoint, The Tarkington fulfills unmet space needs in the area and offers Civic Theatre a state-of-the-art home.

about booth tarkington Born: July 29, 1869, Indianapolis. Died: May 19, 1946, Indianapolis. Tarkington authored over 15 novels from 1899 to 1933 and won two Pulitzer Prizes for “The Magnificent Ambersons” (1919) and “Alice Adams” (1922), respectively.
tistic standpoint, the possibilities are endless. I relish this time in our development as we build an arts hub from the ground up. Great things are happening here.” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard stated that arts center will be good for this area and the state as a whole. “The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts will continue to build on Indiana’s rich artistic heritage,” he said in statement. “Productions at The Tarkington will become a major cultural resource for the region. Likewise, The Tarkington will quickly become synonymous with great entertainment. The Palladium and The Tarkington will be two truly magnificent venues.” Residents of the Center for the Performing Arts include Carmel’s Actors Theatre of Indiana, Carmel Repertory Theatre, Central Indiana Dance Ensemble, the Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre and the Carmel Symphony Orchestra. “In 1924, Booth Tarkington wrote to Civic Theatre’s publicity manager, saying that he hoped its ‘movement for a playhouse would be successful,’” Dick stated. “Now, more than 85 years later, Civic Theatre and Mr. Tarkington’s wish has come true: Civic has found a theater of its own that, thanks in part to its name, feels like home.” On Thursday, June 3, supporters will be among the firsts to get an up-close look as Civic Theatre will host its annual fundraiser in Carmel, adjacent to the construction site of The Tarkington.
By Elizabeth Noel Current in Carmel Jason Myers, a contemporary Indianapolis artist, designer, and gallery owner, will have a new kitchen showing at the Indiana Design Center in Carmel beginning Tuesday. Myers will be partnering with Outré in Carmel, a furniture store that focuses on contemporary furniture designs by local artists. Originally based in downtown Indianapolis, Outré moved to Carmel and opened in the Indiana Design Center May 3. Eric Reynolds, the owner of Outré, met Myers two years ago at Orange, an annual event for a collection of designers. In 2008, Myers was the featured artist for Outré’s downtown studio and displayed his paintings and woodwork there for two years. “Our two stores just meshed; his paintings and woodwork and cabinetry on the walls complemented my furniture on the floor,” Reynolds said. “Our styling is so similar, different from anything Indiana has seen.” The kitchen in Outré will feature cabinets from Metric, Myers’ latest woodworking line. Myers describes it as clean, contemporary, European and dramatic. Though only his cabinetry line will be dis-
played in the Outré showroom, Myers also specializes in furniture and art. Myers, whose dedication sporadically changes between painting and woodworking, calls choosing between the two a “tough call.” “It’s give and take,” he said. “I go through moods and periods where my creative energy is directed toward woodworking, but yet I always have a passion for painting.” Reynolds admires Myers’ use of color, uniqueness, and quality of work. “I’ve never seen anything that comes close to his woodworking abilities,” he said. “He represents everything we want to be a part of—great designers, great people.” Originally from Logansport, Myers came to Indianapolis almost 12 years ago, but he said he has rarely worked with Indiana customers. For this reason, he is excited about the move to Carmel and the IDC, sharing his product there and meeting a local base. “We currently work nationally, so we work very little in Indy,” he says. “By moving to Carmel, we are trying to get into the local communities here.” For more information about Myers’ work, visit www.mdindy.com.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE RELOCATING Changing ResidenCes Following a divoRCe
Divorce and relocation are two of the most stressful changes in an adult’s life. Numerous details and tasks must be managed and completed. When children are involved, the focus is usually whether Stephenie Jocham the change will affect their friends or which school they attend. What many parents do not realize is that their move may violate a state statute. Pursuant to Indiana law, a relocating individual must file detailed written notice of their intent to move with the clerk of the court that issued a custody or parenting time order. The notice is required well in advance of a move, and applies regardless of whether the move is across the street, across town or to a different state. Many parents have been caught by surprise by the relatively new relocation statute and have found themselves unwittingly in violation of such. Previously, the statute only required filing of a relocation notice when a move was greater than 100 miles or out of state. Now, notice applies to every move and must be filed 90 days before the
Current in Carmel
proposed relocation. The non-relocating parent then has 60 days to object to the move or request modifications in custody or parenting time from the court relevant to the relocation. The court considers numerous factors in determining whether any such modification should be granted, including the distance involved, and whether the relocating parent is making the move in good faith and has a legitimate reason for the move. The priority of the court is to confirm that the move is in the best interests of the children. If distance is a factor, other matters must be addressed, including how the move will affect parenting time and impact the non-relocating parent’s relationship with the children. This can be a volatile subject for many parents, and the financial and emotional stresses can exacerbate the situation. However, communication and cooperation can minimize the conflict and parents may be able to negotiate an agreement and alleviate many relocation hurdles and concerns. Consulting with an experienced family law attorney can help either the relocating or non-relocating parent understand how the statute applies to their particular situation and develop a plan of action to address their concerns.

Children are riding their bikes along the manicured sidewalks. Neighbors are chatting with each other, catching up on the day’s activities and looking forward to tomorrow. Dusk is approaching, and soon, evening will turn into night. All is good in Carmel. And then … it happens! Click. As the sun disappears, the customary post lights in Carmel front yards begin to click on. Home by home. Street by street. Neighborhood by neighborhood – from border to border: click, click, click. Within minutes, thousands of incandescent bulbs are burning brightly, filling the night sky with light. Night after night, 4,250 hours a year. Whether needed or not, the Thomas Edison dusk-to-dawn light bulb burns into the darkness as the electric meter records the nightly ritual, watt by wasted watt. But wait, off in the distance is a group of Carmel High School students taking action and disarming the energy thief, one carbon-reducing light bulb at a time. The CHS Green Lights Club arrested the wasteful flow of energy by replacing the inefficient, old-style bulbs with modern technology. Ben Webb, a junior at Carmel High School, took it upon himself to recognize the problem and take decisive action. He believed front yard
post lights could be – and should be – more efficient. He put together a plan to offer homeowners the chance to replace front yard lights with energy-saving, compact fluorescent light bulbs for free. The results of the Green Lights Club efforts are impressive. Each member of the club contacted five homeowners and offered to replace their bulbs. The club switched bulbs in 102 homes in 35 Carmel neighborhoods. Collectively, the energy conservation effort will provide up to $2,040 in annual savings for homeowners and reduce pollution by 50.1 tons of carbon dioxide emissions over the life of the CFL bulbs. The Green Lights Club paid for the bulbs through a grant from the Carmel Green Initiative and a $500 micro-grant from Carmel Green Teens. U.S. Senator Dick Lugar recently named the Green Lights Club a Lugar Energy Patriot award recipient in recognition of its members’ dedication and outstanding contributions to our nation’s energy security. The darkness of night is now efficiently pierced by the light of CFLs, thanks to Carmel Green Lights Club. Jeff Worrell is a local business owner. He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on cable channel 16. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org

Still going strong JHDJ co-founder Stephanie Jocham hasn’t let cancer get in the way of her passion
By Elizabeth Noel Current in Carmel
Stephanie Jocham has wanted to be a lawyer since she was a little girl. In 2008, she teamed with Lanae Harden, Jill Dimick, and Michele Jackson to form the JHDJ law firm in Carmel, where she predominantly serves as a mediator for divorce cases. Harden Now, both the career she loves and – more importantly – her life are in jeopardy. In January, Jocham was diagnosed with stage IV sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that stemmed from a football-sized tumor in her thigh. Doctors suspected the tumor to be a muscle strain for months. The always healthy, active and involved 42-yearold was shocked. After having a successful surgery Jackson to remove the tumor and undergoing radiation, doctors informed her that the cancer had spread to several spots in her lungs. “I kind of hoped the surgery would be it,” Jocham said. “I’m kind of fighting for my life right now – not what I planned on doing this year.” But the resilient attorney, whose constant smile and positivity makes her diagnosis seem like a Small stubbed toe, continues to work when she can. She had to pass all of her cases along, which her co-workers picked up, but she still manages the firm and does some casework. She plans on doing more once she adjusts. “Her work is her passion; she certainly doesn’t want to give it up at this time,” Harden said. “She’s been remarkably strong, and her
Helping haiti’s children
One area in which attorney Stephanie Jocham and the rest of the Jocham Harden Dimick Jackson (JHDJ) law firm has been working diligently is completing adoptions of children from Haiti following the massive earthquake in January. This feat, however, isn’t easy. Amber Small, JHDJ’s director of business development said there are more than 2 million orphans in Haiti, but adopting even one is a challenge. Small said that, in 2008, the entire United States only adopted 308 Haitian orphans of more than 300,000 in need of a new home, thanks in large part to cultural barriers and unclear procedures.

For more information about Stephanie Jocham or JHDJ, visit www.jhdj-law.com or e-mail Jocham directly at email@example.com. positive outlook puts all of our bad days into perspective.” One of Jocham’s greatest disappointments was canceling several trips to Haiti with other women from the office in January and May. According to Amber Small, the director of business development for the firm, the number of orphans in Haiti skyrocketed from 350,000 to 2 million after the earthquake. Small added that the firm received “more than 1,000 calls a day” from people interested in adopting these orphans, and the firm has been doing everything possible to facilitate this often complicated process. “One of the biggest issues is that many of the children there aren’t actually in orphan status,” said Jackson, who focuses on international and domestic adoption for the firm. In their most recent trip there, which lasted three days, Small, Jackson and two others visited four orphanages, gaining trustworthy contacts and trying to identify those children who had been identified as orphans before the earthquake began. JHDJ has worked to make the most of a bad situation in Haiti by helping children in need and providing additions to area families. Now, Jocham relies on her JHDJ family to support her through her ongoing battle. “It’s really difficult to put into words the support I’ve received, here and in the entire legal community,” she said. “The cards, the calls, the e-mails, the text messages – it’s just so wonderfully overwhelming.” Along with being “dinner fairies,” a term Jocham used to describe the way dinner miraculously appears on her doorstep every night, the women at JHDJ started a Relay for Life team in Jocham’s honor. The team, with a stiletto-stamped logo saying “Stepping with Steph,” raised more money than any other team in Washington Township history. “This is really just a reflection of her generosity to others,” Jackson said. “It’s easy to show your support for someone who has been so friend-

ly and giving to everyone in the past.” Jocham plans to throw a “girl power” party on Friday, while her friend shaves her head. “We’ll have some wine and try on my wig; I won’t let this get me down,” she said. Though chemotherapy has caused Jocham to lose her hair, she said she refuses to let cancer rob her of anything else. “I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m determined to suck every ounce of joy out of life every day, whether I have five months or 50 years.”

COMMENTARY By Jaclyn Dunn Does anyone else remember the High/Low issue of the now-defunct design magazine “Metropolitan Home”? The “high” items always looked Picture A (Couture) better, no matter how close those editors came to recreating the drama pieces. Years working in the design industry have taught me the answer actually lies in the old adage, “You get what you pay for.” The reason the “high” items always looked so fabulous is the quality of the materials used to create them were, and still are, far better than those of the “low” stature. It does not make the “low” items unworthy of purchase necessarily. A good analogy would be the difference between a Lexus and a Ford. There is nothing wrong with a Ford, but there is everything right about a Lexus. You guys will get this; just remember it when your wife takes you furniture shopping! I’ll use the examples of two club chairs to expound on the topic … Picture A features a beautiful Versace chair, rightfully named the “Couture” chair. It features multi-toned leather that has been hand stitched with a classic Greek key motif entirely around the arms and back. It is completely Italian made, and it will last a lifetime and beyond. The price point is not for the faint of heart – it retails for $17,620 – but with its beautiful lines and its luxury leather it becomes a furniture “work of art,” worthy of holding on and passing down to future generations. Picture B features a club chair with similar lines, named the
“Dolce” chair, created by the Picture B (Dolce) wonderful upholstery designer Rob Jones. It too has classic lines and large comfortable armrests. You could two tone the leather in the same fashion as the Versace chair, and the retail price point would be only $7,785. But this chair, as wonderful and well made as it is, will not likely be considered a valuable antique in the future. Before you scoff, People magazine reported last year that an Eileen Gray chair auctioned off at Christie’s in the amount of $28 million! Of course, it did not hurt that the chair had once belonged to Yves St. Laurent. That said, the original price point of the chair was a class A category, and it definitely was/is a work of art.

Which came first, the art or the room? Commentary By Vicky Earley Should the art fit the room or the room fit the art? Before this scrambles your brain like that adage about the chicken and the egg, consider that this is a 50/50 proposition. If you polled a group of artists, 100 percent of them would insist that it is imperative for you to buy the art you love and then build a room around it. If you feel strongly about a particular work of art, this is certainly a direction. You may, however, find that when you get the art home and place it on a wall or pedestal, it doesn’t work with its surroundings. By not “working,” I mean the art might look out of place in the room. Placing art in the wrong surroundings detracts from its beauty and impact. What should you do if you bring a painting home and it clashes with its environment? First, try the piece in various places in your home. The perfect place just might be a place you had not considered! If you can’t find a place where the art looks its best, you may need to make some changes in the room, such as moving furniture or taking down patterned wallpaper or repainting with a color that will compliment the art. The changes will be worth making in order to enjoy the art you love.
If you prefer to do the room first and then find the art, size and color are the two major criteria for selection. For any particular space, art that is too large will overwhelm, and art that is too small will be lost and look out of proportion. As a rule, paintings should be hung so that the center of the painting is at eye level. Sculpture may sit on the floor, a table or a pedestal, depending on the design. Remember, these rules are just guidelines. There will always be exceptions. When selecting a painting to match color, select one or two of the boldest colors in your room and look for art that has those colors in it. Don’t feel that an exact match is essential. Picking up one or two of the same colors will send a message that the painting belongs in this environment. Keep in mind that the selection of art is an art in itself. If at all possible, try it in your home before making a final commitment. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel.

U R not clever COMMENTARY By Brandie Bohney Two weeks ago, I railed against the use of numerals in lieu of non-numeric words. Today, I’m going on a similar expositional rant. I thought of this topic as I purchased a T-shirt for my youngest brother, who recently turned 16. It has a friendly looking mushroom on it and reads, “I’m a fun guy.” I like a good play on words. It made me think, though, about another attempted play-on-words T-shirt I saw once. It read, “QT.” I stared at that poor woman’s chest for a long time before I realized that her shirt was supposed to mean cutie. And I was embarrassed not only for staring at her, but also for not catching on faster. I’m disturbed by how many words are often replaced by the letters that sound like the word: U for you, R for are, B for be. That’s not a play on words. That’s annoying. The whole idea of using a single letter to represent a word simply because the pronunciation of that letter is the same as that of the word is absurd. And lazy. In fact, there’s no doubt in my mind that this particular grammar faux pas was born solely out of laziness. I know, I know. Someone is going to send me a sharply worded e-mail telling me that those
abbreviations were made popular during the advent of texting, when charges for texting were made per letter or whatever. That someone is wrong. As reader Andy so wisely points out, it’s Prince’s fault. On his “Purple Rain” album was a song called “I Would Die 4 U.” Andy insists that Prince is responsible for the use of numerals as non-numeric words, and by that logic, Prince is also responsible for the use of letters standing for words that sound like letter pronunciations. Okay, so I don’t really think it’s Prince’s fault. Or even the Artist Formerly Known as Prince’s fault. Not entirely, anyway. But the fact remains the same in this case as in that of the numerals: It’s not cute, funny, clever or even time- or space-saving to make the substitution. It’s just dopey and lazy. And unless you’re a dwarf who mines jewels and lives in a cottage in the woods, Dopey or Lazy is no way to go through life. What’s that? Lazy wasn’t one of the seven dwarves? Huh. Better revisit my Disney classics. Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher. If you have a grammarrelated question, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kids can be so cruel COMMENTARY By Becky Kapsalis Kids can be cruel; they can deliberately and remorselessly cause pain or anguish. We hear cruelty among kids on the playground, in ball games, in school – wherever kids gather, there are usually one or two kids shouting out unkind words. For example, did you know that when one kid calls another kid a “JERK,” he/ she might mean J=junior, E=educated, R=rich, K=kid? Or how about “COOL?” C=constipated, O=over weighted, O=out of style, L=loser! I don’t see anything COOL about that, but apparently some kids, usually the more hurt ones, feel the need to humiliate and embarrass kids who may appear weak. I often wonder where these kids learn that hurting someone’s feelings is a beneficial thing. I wonder, too, how much hurt these same kids have within themselves? They have to put other kids down to hide behind the hurts they experience, so they become bullies. A bully is an aggressive person who intimidates or mistreats weaker people. Where do these kids learn to become bullies? A hurt-filled child is a hurtful child. It is up
to us to recognize the hurts in our children; to help them recognize the hurts within themselves and then give them consequences for their behavior, not punishment. Punishment is treatment that is harsh or unrelated to a child’s behavior. When we feel powerless, we punish. Punishment makes bullies and is similar to giving our kids a license to be cruel without any accountability. Consequences, on the other hand, involve discipline that is related to a child’s behavior, thus causing the child to be self-accountable. A child who is self-accountable knows the difference between aggressive and assertive behavior and does not feel the need to intimidate, be unkind or feel like a weakling. A consequence for an elementary-age bully might be to write down, “I will not be cruel to other kids” 25 times. And send an apology note to the person they were cruel to. Hugs!

and it took off like wild. Currently, cream cheese is the most popular cheese to make cheesecake. Compare it to the others listed, and the results speak for themselves. When tested time and time again, the superior cheesecake was always made with Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, no matter the style or technique. Here is a recipe for mini cheesecakes, which are great for parties or for brunch-style dining. It’s fast, easy and delicious. You can top them with your favorite items to give it your personnel signature. This one is with blueberry compote for summer flair. Chef Michael R. Vlasich, CEC, AAC, is a Carmel resident and the executive chef at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown. You may e-mail him at chefmichael@ currentincarmel.com
Directions: 1. Put cranberries in a small bowl; add 2 tbsp. of warm water. Soak until cool; about 15 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and refrigerate until serving. 2.

COMMENTARY By Chef Michael Vlasich Whether it’s thick as a brick, light and heavenly, rich and creamy or savory and pungent and accented with herbs and garlic, yours is probably the best. It may all be based on your location and ethnic heritage. The dish to which I refer is a food first recorded as a recipe at the first Olympic Games in Athens, Greece in 776 BC, where it was served to athletes. The recipe was simple: “crushed cheese, wheat flour and one egg.” Of course, the recipes have evolved since then. The Romans learned then loved cheesecake and spread it across Europe with their conquering ways. Every culture uses its different cheeses and flavors, which impacts the personality of this cake, mistakenly known to us as the “American icon,” cheesecake.” Funny, because it is not a cake; technically, it’s a baked cheese custard pie (double, whammy, ouch). In the United States, we even have different styles from city to city; for instance, New York’s style uses cream cheese and eggs, creating a very rich product. Philadelphia invented its own cheese just for cheesecake, making a lighter, creamier style. And Chicago has a deep, firm outside and a creamy interior. Prior to the invention of cream cheese in 1872, these cakes were generally made with soft cheese. The French used Neufchatel cheese; Germans would often use cottage cheese or quark; and Italians would use ricotta. Philadelphia’s invention, “cream cheese”, is unique and has its own story. Once again, it was made by mistake, as many great foods and recipes have been. William Lawrence of Chester, New York was trying to make neufchatel and got it wrong. In the process, he accidentally made cream cheese. Not able to afford the cost to discard it, he put it in foil wrappers and marketed it as “Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese,”

This debut novel features wonderfully drawn characters that the reader comes to care about. The author realistically portrays the complex relationships of the siblings and the repercussions on each of that fateful Christmas Eve.

Negativity can be positively powerful COMMENTARY By David Cain Ever strike up a conversation with a stranger? More often than not, the icebreaker is something negative or a criticism. “This wait is so long.” “This airline food is terrible.” We openly share negativity with co-workers, family, friends and perfect strangers. People have a natural tendency to be more interested and aware of the negative versus the positive. It’s true. Misery loves company. People habitually unite around the negative. It’s more instinctual to discuss negative things than positive ones. Mistakes, failures, myths, threats and other negative things unite. It’s the subject of radio talk shows, newspapers, the nightly news, wars and reality television. Shows about success get less traction compared to shows about misfortune. Even “American Idol” has its largest viewing audience for the early auditions – for the humiliation. People talk more about what is wrong than what is right. Research also suggests that people are more likely to share criticisms. Upset and frustrated customers, therefore, are often more vocal about their service compared to the happy customer. Someone upset might volunteer his or her misfortune at every opportunity and with great passion, whereas a happy customer shares
it sparingly and only when asked. Why do we do it? Maybe we want to help others avoid the same pitfalls, so we naturally share negative more than positive. Maybe we just find it more interesting. Maybe our brains are wired to be afraid of failure more than desiring of success. Maybe we’re just self-centered and we like to feel better about ourselves through the failure of others. Maybe it’s all these reasons. More people would read an article titled “The Five Threats Facing Your Business’ compared to “Five Lessons for Success.” Your audience would be larger for “10 Common Mistakes” compared to “10 Tips for Success.” Does your marketing and communication reflect the natural tendency of people to talk about something negative? Your customers might be more influenced by the story of a customer who was unhappy and whose opinion you changed than the story of a client that was always happy. Don’t be afraid to harness the power of the negative. Negativity can be positively powerful. David Cain works at MediaSauce, a digital media and online marketing company in Carmel.

Understanding your thyroid levels
COMMENTARY By Angela LaSalle, M.D. Thyroid problems are more common than previously thought. As many as 13 million Americans may be unaware they have a thyroid issue, according to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause symptoms like fatigue and hair loss, and though we commonly associate palpitations, anxiety and weight loss with high thyroid function and fatigue, depression, dry skin and constipation with low thyroid function, the proper diagnosis of thyroid disorders relies heavily upon measuring the communication between the pituitary and thyroid gland. Thyroid disorders are diagnosed with a blood test, but many are confused when the blood test comes back elevated, yet they are told that they actually have hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) actually comes from the pituitary gland in the brain, not the thyroid gland itself. The pituitary gland is responsible for releasing signals to our endocrine glands like the thyroid, adrenals, ovaries
and testes to stimulate the glands to produce their respective hormones. If the pituitary is speaking more loudly to an under functioning gland, the level of the signal hormone in the blood goes up. Conversely, the signal hormone is less if the gland is over functioning. Thus, an elevation of TSH indicates hypothyroidism (low function), while a below-normal TSH indicates hyperthyroidism (too high of function). Understanding this inverse relationship helps patients with thyroid issues understand not only how their thyroid problem is diagnosed, but also how their medications are adjusted. Physicians will use a combination of TSH and free thyroid hormone levels to decide what dosage of thyroid medications to use and monitor their therapy. Thyroid function is critical to the function of all our cells. Next time, we will discuss the connection between thyroid and high cholesterol.

Probiotics: They’re the ‘friendly’ bacteria COMMENTARY By Laura Marenco Did you know your digestive system needs bacteria to be healthy? Good bacteria, that is. Good bacteria are known as probiotics, organisms that contribute to the health and balance of the intestinal tract. Probiotics are also referred to as the “friendly” or “beneficial” bacteria, which, when ingested, also act help fight illness and disease. New research has established how important the supplementation of probiotics can be for a variety of conditions. Probiotics enhance the immune system by favorably altering the digestive system’s micro-ecology and preventing unfriendly organisms from gaining a foothold in the body. They prevent the overgrowth of yeast and fungus and produce substances that can lower cholesterol. Probiotics are widely recommended for the treatment of Candida, a fungal infection, because they establish large, healthy populations of friendly bacteria that compete with the Candida that is trying to take up residence in the intestine. Probiotics are also essential in the treatment and prevention of thrush, vaginal yeast infections and athlete’s foot, among other maladies. Good health fundamentally depends
on the more than 400 types of friendly, symbiotic bacteria that inhabit the digestive tract. Many women experience negative side effects after using antibiotics as a result of the destruction of good bacteria in the digestive system. Antibiotics do not recognize between good and bad bacteria, and all bacteria are killed off with such treatment. If you have experienced such symptoms, you might want to supplement with probiotics after antibiotic treatment to reestablish your good intestinal flora and restore your system to good health. Daily consumption of probiotics also increases nutrient absorption and improves vitamin synthesis, digestion, detoxification and protection from toxins. Look for a supplement that provides a full spectrum of beneficial bacteria, grown in a whole-food medium, which in turn will generate superior phytonutrients that support your health. As with any supplement, it’s best to first check with your physician before beginning a regimen.

Bicycling event to benefit Riley patient with rare disease By Danielle Turnbull Current in Carmel A simple request was all it took to get Joshua’s Ride for Riley off the ground. With sponsorship and generous donations in a number of different ways, the June 6 event will be able to raise money for the Pediatric Urology Department at the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Krimmel This is all being done for a 6-month-old child named Joshua Krimmel. Riley has cared for this little boy diagnosed with prune belly syndrome since birth, a rare disease that affects only one in 40,000 births. It’s a devastating disease, especially for a newborn baby. By the time Joshua was four and a half months old, he had already gone through four surgeries. “I’m excited about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it,” Keith Krimmel, Joshua’s father, said. The event will start at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday June 6, at the Carmel Cyclery Bicycle Shop near the Monon Trail. There will be a small ride for children and a longer 5-mile ride for adults. Face painting and a bounce house will also be available for children’s entertainment. Attendees can also participate in a silent auction and bid on a number of different items, from restaurant gift cards, college football tickets, and even signed celebrity memorabilia from the Colts and

Jeff Gordon. The whole event started with Krimmel and his simple plea to Carmel Cyclery’s Valeri Luzadder for help. Krimmel knew about a similar biking event Luzadder helped with two years ago, Kate’s Courage, and asked for her help in creating another like it. Luzadder happily complied, believing that biking is sometimes the way to bring people together. “I feel like the overall mission statement is this: We are here to help each other,” Luzadder said. Krimmel said he cannot believe the amount of support he’s received for the event. Krimmel said that he has realized in the past months just how important Riley is for children that need its care and wants to help raise as much money as possible, “one pedal at a time,” using Joshua as his motivation. “It’s easy for me to be enthusiastic about it because it’s my life,” Krimmel said. “If it weren’t for Joshua, I wouldn’t be doing this. It’s definitely been a life-changing experience.”

All you need is … Christ cism (severe prohibitions and physical denial), angel worship, deprecation of Christ, “secret” knowledge and reliance on human wisdom and tradition. Bible scholars have implied these were the negative problems Paul was addressing, based on the positive specifics of Paul’s letter. And the crux of Paul’s message was this: Christ is preeminent, Christ is sufficient, Christ is complete. Paul’s words are strong, but are an encouragement, not a scolding. Take every bit of “other” religions and philosophies – Paul was saying – and none of it adds up to the hope, life and completeness of Jesus Christ. If Epaphras were to look around today – in our towns and churches – what would he report to Paul? What are we worshipping that minimizes or replaces Christ’s truth? Would he see denial of Christ? Idol worship? False doctrine? He’d see many of the same things Colossae faced 2,000 years ago, with all the amplification of modern communications. We must know the truth and be the vessel, tool, carrier and sharer of Christ’s love and care … like Paul.
COMMENTARY By Bob Walters St. Paul’s letter to the Colossians addressed a first-century church community that had its Christian beliefs under fire. Epaphras (and possibly Philemon) heard Paul preach the Gospel in Ephesus around 55 A.D. and took that message home 100 miles to the west in Colossae, a smallish town in what today is west central Turkey. The believers at Colossae heard, believed and thrived in their newly found truth of Jesus Christ. But the converts were confronted with those in their community – and some even in their church – who insisted the Gospel Truth of Christ could not be all they needed. There were Judaizers who denied the sufficiency of Christ. There were Pagan practices, Greek philosophies, Gnostic “wisdom” and Eastern mystics. Many were drawn to the new church; drawn by the powerful story of Christ’s resurrection, drawn by the message of faith, hope, love and salvation. How quickly the purity and simplicity of Christ – salvation by faith – was muddled. An NIV Study Bible I looked at listed the likely “heresies” Epaphras reported to Paul, who was under house arrest in Rome. The heresies – although not named – likely included ceremonialism (strict rules about food, festivals and circumcision, e.g.), asceti-

The appearance of pursuit
call 489-4444 for info
COMMENTARY By Rachael Noble I’ve obviously been on a continuous mission lately to try to change a stubborn mindset that seems to be prevalent in our society (the lack of pursuit from men these days). A lot of men have written in saying, “OK, we get it. But what does this so called pursuit look like in real life?” Good point, guys. I will break this into two parts. In part one, I’ll talk to those men who are in relationships or married. Considering the pursuit should never end, even after marriage (trust me guys, this will be the gift that keeps on giving), here are some easy ways to pursue your woman: • Set aside a no-exception date night each week. Take on the task of thinking up fun things to do – taking a walk, bowling, taking a carriage ride, rock climbing, going to a concert, etc. Things you can do together as a team (camping, playing a game, taking a cooking class together) will be a bonding experience for you. Even if your partner is a little reluctant, keep pushing for those sweet times alone together. Lead the way – with no strings attached – and prove to her you want to spend time with her. • “Woo” her by opening her door, walking on the traffic side of the sidewalk, buying
her flowers, holding her hand and spending time with her. • If she pushes you away, continue to “chase after her.” You may not understand it, but we women do this literally to test your love for us. If you insist on “chasing after us” to find out what’s wrong or why we are pulling away, we will be endeared to you for it (even if we don’t act like it). • Literally take her in your arms and tell her how beautiful she is and what she means to you. Look her in the eyes, men, we love that! • Listen to her when she talks and don’t discount ANY of her feelings. For instance, if she says, “I don’t feel like you’re being very sweet to me,” instead of getting defensive, ask her why and for examples. Tell her that you want to work on fixing this together. Sometimes this is all we need to help us get our emotions back on track. Remember guys, your challenge is to daily and endlessly pursue. She’ll love you for it!

Is your dog ‘stoned?’ COMMENTARY By John Mikesell In my last column, I talked about calcium oxalate stones. This time, I will discuss magnesium ammonium phosphate stones (also called struvites). Because different stones require entirely different treatment – and often completely opposite treatment – it’s critical to identify the type of stone accurately. Without removing a stone, there is no way to know for sure, but a good guess can be based on urinary PH; the dog’s age, breed and sex; the type of crystals; whether infection is present; and certain blood test abnormalities. Although kidney and bladder stones can afflict dogs of both sexes, all breeds and all ages, those at greatest risk are small, female dogs between the ages of 4 and 8 that are prone to bladder infections. Although male dogs develop fewer stones, the condition is more dangerous to them because of their anatomy. Stones are more likely to cause blockages in the male’s narrower urethra. About 85 percent of all struvite stones are found in female dogs, with just 15 percent found in males. The presence of urinary struvite crystals alone does not represent disease and does not require treatment. These crystals can be found in the urine of an estimated 40 to 44 percent of all healthy dogs and are not a cause for concern unless they are accompanied by signs of urinary tract infection. Struvite crystals are not a problem unless there is a concurrent bacterial urinary tract infection with a disease-producing microbe.

Struvite crystals do require a change in diet. Because struvite does not pose a problem unless the dog has a urinary tract infection, there is no required treatment for crystals including dietary changes. If the dog does have a urinary tract infection, a prescription dog food will not cure it. What you can do: • Become familiar with the symptoms of urinary stones and respond quickly if you see them. • Request a urine culture and sensitivity test to check for infection, even if your veterinarian doesn’t think it’s necessary. • Encourage your dog to drink extra water and give her frequent opportunities to urinate. • Don’t expect a low-protein diet to cure or prevent struvite stones • Learn how to test your dog’s ph to check for recurring urinary tract infections. Most healthy dogs have a neutral to slightly acid pH between 5.5 and 7.0. Other preventive measures include giving your dog cranberry capsules, probiotics and vitamin C. Be sure to see your to see your pet health food specialist and check on available additives. John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at email@example.com.
PETS OF THE WEEK Cooper is a 2-year-old male black lab/ shepherd mix. Cooper is a gentle and intelligent boy who knows the commands sit, down, come, shake, beg, stay and heel. He is good with other dogs as well as cats, and he really enjoys playing with anyone willing to take the time to play with him. Cooper is neutered and house trained and is a happy boy with a wonderful smile, and he would prefer a home with respectful children. Cooper is currently in a foster home, so if you would like to meet him, call 774-1263 to schedule a time to meet Cooper. Do-si-do is a 3-year-old female calico DSH. Do-si-do is a real sweet girl with a charming personality. She arrived at the shelter Feb. 24, and though she was happy to be out of the cold, she wants nothing more than a home to call her own. Do-si-do is gorgeous and many of the staff thinks she could be a model for a cat magazine. She can get along with other cats, and she would love to find a home with a big picture window to sun herself during the day. Do-si-do is spayed and litter box trained and will make a great family pet. For more information on these and other animals at the Humane Society, call 317-773-4974 or go to www.hamiltonhumane.com.

DISPATCHES » iPhone on the cheap – Walmart has begun selling the iPhone 3GS for only $97 with a 2-year contract. That’s $100 off the price you get from Apple itself. The pricing comes only shortly before the iPhone 4G is launched, so if you want the latest and greatest, you may be better off to wait. -www.ubergizmo.com » 3D at home – LG has released some prices via Amazon. com for its upcoming 3D TVs. While the better specced LX9500 range still hasn't been priced, the LC6500 has— with the 47-inch model coming in at $2,700 and the 55-incher at $3,600. Glasses will have to be bought separately, and for $125 each, at that. Currently, Amazon's just listing the price of both sets, with no inkling as to when they'll ship.

COMMENTARY By Gary Hubbard After the recent high-profile case of the school that was accused of remotely spying on its students via MacBooks issued to its students, a lot of misinformation and hype has been generated about “Webcam spying.” The circumstances that allowed the school’s IT staff to remotely turn on the Webcams has little in common with the average Internet-connected computer that happens to have a Webcam. The school had pre-loaded the computers with special software that would allow them to track and remotely access them in the event they were stolen or lost. By default, the average computer or laptop with a Webcam is not vulnerable to this exploit just because it is connected to the Internet, so any rumors of this nature are untrue. What is possible, however, is that your computer can get compromised in a number of ways that would allow a specific remote user to access your Webcam (or your entire computer for that matter). The two most likely scenarios are that someone with malicious intent gets their hands on your computer (and not for very long!) and secretly installs a special remote access program or you are tricked into allowing something to be installed via an e-mail message, malicious Web site, instant message or social network. The same “Trojan horse” tactics used to infect computers with viruses and other malicious programs applies to this exploit by way of “social engineering” tricks. For instance, a common tactic in the past was to send an e-mail or instant message that said, “I can’t believe you got caught on camera doing that!” with a link to the supposed video. When you click on the link, it takes you to a Web page that looks very much like a Facebook page with an embedded video. When you click on the video to watch it, you get a pop-up that
says that you need to update your “flash player” software in order to view the video. And of course, conveniently located on the page is the officiallooking Adobe Flash button that will allow you to get to this video that has you thoroughly concerned. When you click the Adobe button, a program installation window pops up, and when you tell your computer to run this installation program, you have infected your computer. If you don’t keep your computer updated with the latest patches for your operating system and security programs, it’s even possible for your computer to get infected by simply visiting a malicious Web site (known as a “drive-by download”). A potential indication (but not absolute) that something or someone is accessing your Webcam is when the webcam’s little LED indicator is on but you are not using your Webcam in any program. If you are using a desktop system with a plug-in Webcam, you may want to disconnect it until you can get a tech-savvy person to look “under the hood” of your computer to make sure you have not been compromised. If you have a laptop with a built-in webcam, you can try disabling it until you can get someone technical involved, but that can be equally as technical depending upon which operating system you are running (it’s different for just about every situation). The best way to avoid becoming a victim of this type of secret spy software is to avoid clicking on or downloading anything you are not absolutely sure is safe. When in doubt, leave it out.

To my mom, ‘husky’ is a dirty word COMMENTARY By Mike Redmond I’ve been on something of a shopping spree lately. It seems I’ve turned into a clothes horse. Clydesdale, when you look at the sizes. This happens to me every few years. Truth be told, these are the first new duds I’ve bought in about seven years. I’ve been living mostly in jeans and T-shirts during that time, and while that’s fine, a fellow does need a little diversity in his wardrobe. Shirts with collars, for example. Just kidding. I owned some nice clothes too. I had suits and jackets and even a couple of tuxedos hanging in the closet. Truth be told, I once was known as something of a snappy dresser. But, as I said, that was seven or more years ago and you know what happens in seven years: Clothes go out of fashion, and what was once the height of style becomes a clown suit. Watch a repeat of “Soul Train” if you don’t believe me. And then there’s gravity. I personally believe I am more susceptible than most to gravitational pull. This is why my body (a.) is sinking slowly toward my feet, (2.) weighs so much and (also) is so hard to drag up
the stairs unless I first take a nap in the living room before going to bed. Anyway, the time came to buy clothes and I discovered a few things. For example, guys my size have a lot more choices than they used to, and some pretty vivid ones at that. I saw a yellow suit in The Fashion Store For Big And Beastly Men that 20 years ago would have been mistaken for a lost parade balloon. And I saw a striped one that looked like it should have come with a whistle. Then I turned a corner and saw the Hawaiian shirts. Let’s just say it was a good thing I hadn’t eaten. I tend to be rather conservative in my clothing choices. For this you may credit my mother, who implanted long ago the idea that fashionable clothes were for thin people, not me. I can still remember the heartbreak in her voice when she told the saleslady I needed the “husky” jeans. You would have thought “husky” was another way to say “criminal.” Years later, I was shopping with a girlfriend and saw a double breasted suit I liked but did not buy. The girlfriend asked why. I told her I
could hear my mother’s voice saying, “You can’t wear a double-breasted suit. Your butt’s too big.” The girlfriend thought I was being ridiculous so when we got to my place I had her listen on the extension while I called Mom. “Saw a suit I liked today,” I told Mom. “Double breasted.” Mom didn’t miss a beat. “You can’t wear a double-breasted,” she announced. And then we heard the sound of the extension phone hitting the floor. I’ve told the same story to numerous therapists. But I’m over it now. I go by the maxim learned in Mrs. Grabill’s Latin class: “Vestis virum reddit.” Clothes make the man. When I dress well, I feel good. Powerful. In control. And that’s really what the new clothes are all about – feeling good, powerful and in control. I even bought a double-breasted blazer. Don’t tell Mom.

I’ll miss ‘24,’ despite its hilarious flaws COMMENTARY By Dick Wolfsie Two of my favorite TV series, “24” and “Law & Order,” will end this season, forever. While I have been a faithful viewer of both, I have mixed feelings about their demise. The truth is, I found “24” very depressing. Not because of all the torture, killing and terrorist activity, but because the show made me realize how little I really get done in an average day compared to some people. I’m usually content with gulping a few of cups of coffee, responding to e-mails and paying utility bills. That’s it; I’m pooped. Where’s the hammock? That’s why I found the show a little unrealistic. After watching all 24 episodes, I noticed no one ever took a nap. Jack Bauer has a granddaughter in this series, and I don’t think it’s believable that Grandpa could spend all day Tuesday saving the free world and not put his head down on the pillow for just a few minutes. Unlike “Law & Order,” in which cops are always munching Nathan’s hot dogs in Central Park or scarfing down take-out Chinese at the local precinct, the government agents on “24” are never seen with even a cup of coffee. The
Counter Terrorist Unit spent millions on stateof-the-art computer technology, but I’m telling you there’s not one coffee machine in the entire place. Maybe there’s a Starbucks nearby. I hope so. These people have been up all night. My personal experience growing up near Manhattan differs from that of the “24” characters who apparently get anywhere in the city in three minutes or less. No matter where the terrorists are hiding out, the good guys are just an AFLAC commercial away. As a kid, I lived just 14 miles from LaGuardia Airport. If my family had a flight on Tuesday, we left late Monday afternoon, just in case we hit traffic. In a recent episode of “24,” the president’s chief of staff has a heart attack and is rushed to the hospital. In the next show, he’s just fine, walking around griping about the hostiles. But wait, it’s not the next week. It’s supposed to be 25 minutes later. I hope the WellPoint and Anthem folks didn’t see that miraculous recovery. Call me old-fashioned, but a major cardiac event should qualify for an overnight stay. I did learn something about bombs from this series. The scum who design them always include a beeping digital display of the time
remaining before the explosion, providing important feedback for those disarming the device. The wires also have different colors for easy deactivation. Who says bad guys are inconsiderate? And one thing about “Law & Order”: How is it that when the cops go to question or arrest a bad guy, he’s always home? What kind of killer sits in his living room every night watching cable TV? And when the lowlife answers the door, his girlfriend emerges from the bedroom to see what’s going on. Then this thug yells at her to get back and mind her own business. It’s bad enough that the guy is murdering people; does he have to bad mouth the little woman, as well? And you wonder why the divorce rate is so high in the criminal population. By the way, “Lost” is also going off the air. It was on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. That’s the only thing about that show I’m really sure of.

Kitchen remodel: Removing walls to create open space COMMENTARY By Larry Greene Small space without a view: This home on Morse Reservoir included a relatively small kitchen with walls separating the kitchen from the dining room and sunroom. These BEFORE walls prevented the homeowner from being able to see out onto the beautiful lakeside setting. The overall goal of the project was to open up the floor plan, raise the ceiling and remove the existing walls to create an open view to the lake. Removing walls and ceiling: The design phase included an investigation into the feasibility of removing the existing 8’ high ceilings. The structural engineer determined that the existing framing allowed for two of the existing walls to be completely removed because the walls were non-load bearing. It was also determined that the existing ceiling could be converted from an 8’ high flat ceiling to a 10’ high trayed ceiling. New cabinets: The existing cabinets were

AFTER replaced with all-new full-overlay semi-custom cabinets in Premium Alder with a nutmeg stain. The cabinets also received a dark brown highlight and were upgraded to all plywood boxes. The cabinets above the sink received new decorative glass mullion doors. Other cabinet options included a corner lazy susan, Blu-Motion soft close full-extension drawer hardware, crown molding, under-cabinet light rail trim and a new custom range-hood cabinet. Finally the new island cabinetry included decorative panels, legs and seating for four. Final touches: Some of the finishing touches included a new tile backsplash with 4” x 4” stone tile complemented by framed medallions
at the range and sink areas and new granite countertops. The countertops included 3 cm. Verde Butterfly with an ogee edge at the island and a standard eased edge on the perimeter. Finally, the existing tile flooring was replaced with new 3-1/4” wide natural white oak hardwood in the kitchen, dining room, sunroom, mudroom and all connecting hallways.
