Sixth-grader finds purpose in charity By Terri Spilman • email@example.com “May you always do for others and let others do for you.” It’s a prolific message penned by singer Bob Dylan, but it also describes a way of life for charity one of Dylan’s youngest fans, Carmel Middle School student Josh Honig. Josh launched a nonprofit organization called Kidstruments Fund to provide schools and school districts with instruments for aspiring young musicians in need. But the charity’s roots began in an unlikely place. While most 11-year-old kids could not build a website in a matter of minutes, computers are Josh’s passion, and he started programming at the age of 7. But in a twist of fate, he chose orchestra for his only elective class instead of tech ed because he’d already mastered the curriculum. That decision opened the door for him to learn how to play the cello. And in his orchestra class, a random act of kindness served as the impetus for Kidstruments. “It did not start as an intent of what we are doing now,” Josh said. “I was in orchestra class, and my teacher had this very sentimental violin, and it fell off the music stand and it didn’t look broken until I saw a huge crack in the side. So I went home that night and set up a website and raised about $450 - which was the cost needed to fix it.” As it turned out, Josh’s instructor did not accept the donation, which left him pondering the question of what to do with the funds. “So I just had this money and I wanted to make it about music,” he said. After discussing the situation with school administrators, as well as his parents David and Robyn Honig, Josh discovered that there were in fact students whose family could not afford the expense of renting an instrument for the school year. Those rentals can cost about $60 a month. With the realization that starting a business is a serious commitment and more than just a hobby, Josh plunged forth with his vision. Kidstruments Fund was officially born, complete with his mom and dad as members of the board. Through the organization’s website, Kidstrumentsfund.org, about $1,500 has been raised so far with the first grant being awarded to Carmel Middle School. The school has anonymously chosen a family

to have an instrument of their choice paid for and maintained for the school year. The school’s principal, Lila Jay, said the family that received the instrument was thrilled. Donations to the Kidstruments Fund also can be made via the smile.amazon.com charity program. Kidstruments is concentrating its efforts on schools and school districts in Indiana and it has also received grant requests from out of state. The organization is also refurbishing instruments for donation to schools in need. The results leave Josh feeling good because he said music has provided him a form of stress relief. And he thinks it’s pretty neat to be able play a range of music on the cello, from 8-bit gaming songs to Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” “I just think that if you can boost your self-confidence, you can boost what you like doing because someone might love to play an instrument and they might not even know it,” he said. “They could even become a professional, and if they don’t get to play in middle school, they may not ever become a professional. It could really be a life-changer.”

Price of Ponzie scheme
When a consumer advocacy website set out to find the best small cities in the United States that are not only thriving economically, but also are places that provide an affordable lifestyle for residents, Indiana’s cities stood out. And compared to the best small cities in the country – none could compare to Carmel. “While we do not actively seek such recognition, it benefits Carmel whenever an outside analysis results in the city earning some accolades for wonderful attributes we have worked so hard to build and preserve,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said. “Our hope is that the more Carmel earns recognition for being an excellent place to live, work and raise a family, the more chance we have to attract more jobs and more corporate headquarters.” Read more at www.currentincarmel.com.

Bear Creek subdivision approved By Adam Aasen • firstname.lastname@example.org The Carmel City Council approved the proposed Bear Creek subdivision on June 2, only after the developer agreed to scrap plans for a mulch walking path in the government neighborhood. There were no public objections to the Pulte Homes project, which would feature 93 homes on about 72 acres of land southeast of 146th Street and Little Eagle Creek Avenue. But during the council’s Land Use Committee meeting, councilors Carol Schleif and Ron Carter had strong objections to a mulch path that would meander through future residents’ yards. The path was not required by the city, but the councilors thought the path was a poor choice that discouraged cycling and could be unattractive. “Mulch path is not a multi-use path,” Carter said. “It’s not sustainable, and we shouldn’t be encouraging it or allowing it to happen.” During the committee meeting, Councilor Kevin “Woody” Rider was one of the biggest defenders of Pulte, contending that it’s inappropriate to start mandating changes to businesses if it is not part of the city guidelines. The subdivision received a positive recommendation out of the committee, but when Councilor Rick Sharp made a motion to approve the zoning ordinance, Rider wasn’t present and

there wasn’t a second to the motion. As a result of parliamentary rules, this would have killed the bill and forced it to start from the beginning. Carter said he didn’t think that was appropriate and suggested making some minor changes so it could be passed. All of the councilors agreed that they didn’t like the mulch path, but they differed on the idea of the government’s role in mandating the change. Pulte eventually agreed to just get rid of the path since it wasn’t integral to its plan. They added if it were to build one later, it would be asphalt, just as the council preferred. The subdivision was then unanimously approved. The lawyer for the developer said the goal is to begin construction this summer. The homes, which would occupy an average lot of about 0.77 acres, are slated to sell between $375,000 to $550,000.

City Council recap
Compiled by Adam Aasen
What happened: A special meeting was scheduled to deal with changes to the city’s comprehensive plan. What it means: For more than a year, this proposal has sat in committee. As a result, chair Rick Sharp said he is determined to get a version passed so the council can focus its efforts on just addressing the changes to the city’s comprehensive plan that have already been approved by the Carmel Plan Commission, some of which deal with bike lines and road widths. Later on, they can then address the numerous other changes that have come up in discussions.
What’s next: The Land Use, Annexation and Economic Development Committee met June 9.
What happened: Multiple businesses have missed the deadline to file paperwork for tax abatement. What it means: To help lure businesses to the area, Carmel often offers tax abatements as an economic incentive. But when companies don’t fulfill their end by completing paperwork, Councilor Luci Snyder said it can be frustrating. The list includes: Allegient, Allete Automotive Services, Baldwin & Lyons, Belden Inc., Capital Bank and Trust, Dealer Services Corporation, Flywheel Healthcare, GEMMS, KAR Auction Services, Meridian Medical Partners, Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator, Pharmakon Long Term Care Pharmacy and The Capital Group Companies. Flywheel and Pharmakon are the companies most in danger of losing their abatements.
What’s next: The council hopes to have a meeting scheduled soon to meet with the companies.
What happened: The council adopted an ordinance that dealt with “no parking” areas. What it means: This was a pretty straightforward bill that didn’t even get sent to committee before being unanimously approved without much discussion. It allows people who live next to a city mandated “no parking” area to receive a valid resident sticker so they can park without getting a ticket.
What’s next: The ordinance was passed and will go into effect.
What happened: Various bills remained in committee. What it means: The following bills are still in committee: the stormwater utility ordinance, the noise ordinance, the comprehensive plan changes and several bills relating to transfer of real estate.
What’s next: The Utilities, Transportation and Public Safety Committee met on June 5. During the meeting it was proposed that noisy construction work in the city be limited to the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Councilor Carol Schleif also wanted to consider prohibiting delivery trucks at supermarkets and retail stores from using reverse sounds between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. that could disturb neighbors. The Finances, Rules and Administration Committee meets 5:30 p.m. June 19.

Carmel CPA the Democrats’ candidate for Auditor By Pete Smith • email@example.com Following the Indiana Democrats’ state convention the weekend of June 1, Carmel resident Mike Claytor was government selected as the party’s candidate for state auditor in the November general election. That post is currently held by Suzzane Crouch, who was appointed by Gov. Mike Pence in January. Claytor is hoping to follow in the footsteps of state Supt. of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz, also a Carmel Claytor Democrat, and grab a prominent state leadership role while residing in the traditional Republican stronghold of Hamilton County. He’s even using the same campaign manager. Claytor had been working behind the scenes for the past year to earn the party’s nomination, but now comes the hard part – trying to appeal to voters for a position most know little about. And he admits it has been difficult to get anyone excited about it. “The key thing has been three initials – CPA,” Claytor said, noting that it’s a message that has been resonating. He said he thinks that’s because the state auditor has never been a certified public ac-
countant before. Claytor likes to tell people that if Indiana were a corporation, its $30.5 billion annual budget would make it No. 100 on the Forbes list of top companies. “If you were a large company, you would have a CPA as your chief financial officer,” he said. As auditor, he said he would: • Work to better document financial transactions and create a system that notifies officials of issues before they become huge mistakes similar to the hundred of millions of dollars of state money that was found sitting idle in unchecked funds during Gov. Mitch Daniels’ administration. • Make improvements to the Indiana Transparency Portal (a state public records repository) to make it more user-friendly. He also noted he would use his bully pulpit if he found that state agencies were deleting public records from that space. • Work to make sure that the Auditor’s role on the State Board of Finance (composed of the governor, auditor and treasurer) would allow it to function as an effective check and balance on the budget appropriations of the legislature. Claytor began his career in 1975 working for the State Board of Accounts, the Indiana agency that audits municipal government enti-
ties, and continued working there for 15 years. He was even named by former Republican Gov. Robert Orr to be a Democrat deputy at the agency. Orr eventually awarded Claytor with the prestigious Sagamore of the Wabash. It was the first of four he has received – the others came from former Gov. Bayh, O’Bannon and Kernan. His role in state government and working at accounting firm Crowe Howrath from 1989 until his official retirement in 2010 put him in close proximity to powerful leaders. And even though this is Claytor’s first time as a candidate, he has served as treasurer for multiple governors’ campaigns. “I’m just a bean counter,” he said. But during the past 40 years that he has lived in Carmel, he has even done some consulting work for the city and has been a long-time scoutmaster for a Boy Scout Troop in Home Place. And looking toward the election in November, he knows that Democrats will vote for him. But that’s not enough to win a statewide office in Indiana today. He said he knows he has to appeal to moderate Republicans to judge him based on his history of professionalism and his history of working well with Republicans. “If you live in Carmel, you have to,” he said.

Affordable senior housing fizzles
But a restaurant in the former Glass Chimney building could fill the void By Pete Smith • firstname.lastname@example.org The dream of affordable senior housing in Carmel has evaporated. In January Herman & Kittle Properties unveiled a plan to build an apartdevelopment ment community on the site of the former Glass Chimney Restaurant at 12901 Old Meridian St. in Carmel. The plan was to rent the 40 planned apartments to seniors, with one-bedroom rents ranging from $251-$515 per month, and twobedroom rents ranging from $308-$633. Herman & Kittle had applied for financing through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, said Erika Scott, development director at Herman & Kittles Properties. But the company didn’t get it. “Sadly, this property did not receive the taxcredit allocation that we had applied for. It’s a very competitive process, and we just were not awarded the funding,” said Laurren Brown, a spokeswoman for Herman & Kittle. So now owner Jon Jessup of Summit Realty has switched gears and plans to restore the former restaurant and expand it to offer multiple areas for outdoor seating. During a June 3 Carmel Plan Commission Special Studies Committee meeting, representatives

from the company said that JKB Properties plans to renovate the interior and exterior of the former Glass Chimney Building to establish a new restaurant. JKB Properties representatives did not disclose the name of the new restaurant or the type of food it would serve, but they did say it would be family friendly and a non-chain business from an established restaurant operator. The new restaurant will have about 162 seats, a bar and additional outdoor seating. The representatives also said that a new cooking school is scheduled to occupy the former Cooking Greek Restaurant space in the building Jessup owns just north of the former Glass Chimney building. The representative from JKB properties gave no timeline for when the new restaurant or cooking school would be named. They just said of the project, “It’ll be a success.”

ing breast cancer since 1996. Money generated through fundraising activates at Rally events, like this event at Brookshire Golf Club, have produced more than $70 million and counting for Komen. “We have collected anywhere from $1,600 to $2,500 each year,” Strano said. “We are hoping to make this year a record high.” And league member Nancy Shaw is working on recruiting more members.

Hamilton County officials have a proposal to reduce traffic congestion and travel times along a six-mile stretch of Ind. the commute 37 between Fishers and Noblesville by creating a freeway with roundabout intersections similar to Keystone Parkway in Carmel. The Hamilton County Commissioners have conducted a study that advised the traffic issues and future failure of 10 intersections between I-69 and Ind. 38 would be solved with such a renovation. Cost of the project to own and operate the roadway is estimated at $243 million during 50 years. Estimated costs for construction and yearly costs were not available at the presentation. According to United Consulting President Dave Richter, 70 percent of the costs traditionally come from state and federal funding with the remaining 30 percent being split by local governments. Richter said the problem needs to be addressed proactively to avoid the state, which owns the roadway, deciding the scope and schedule of the project. “INDOT will decide which crossroads will get turn lanes and which ones don’t,” he said. “INDOT is concerned with traffic going north and south, they aren’t concerned with traffic going east and
west into your communities.” Officials said roundabout interchanges provide a solution for the next 20 to 30 years. Greg Kicinski of American Structurepoint, said it takes 25 to 40 minutes to travel the six miles during rush hour, and it also will cause near failures of six intersections by 2019 and complete failures of all intersections by 2025. Commissioners said the study has been shared with INDOT and state representatives, which are in favor of the project. The next step is to share the presentation with elected officials from Noblesville and Fishers and gain approval from each municipality. As a group, the county and each city will then approach INDOT and the state for approval and funding negotiations. To read more of this story, visit www.currentincarmel.com.

Sweet new spot in Carmel By Anna Skinner • email@example.com Carmel gained a delicious addition on May 29, when a newly built Gigi’s Cupcakes opened its doors for the first time at 2454 now open E. 146th St. Gigi’s specializes in fresh cupcakes, but its other merchandise includes stuffed cookies, muffins, cheesecakes and beverages such as iced tea, lemonade and Coke products at this store in particular. This location also has an espresso bar, and not all Gigi’s stores include that. An espresso bar isn’t the only addition to this location in particular though. “One of the things exclusive to this location is the Monon Social Room included in the store,” general manager Lauren Burton said. “It is a place for parties and events, and it’s going to be a place to gather if business people have a need to sit and have a spot to get their work done.” Gigi’s bakes its cupcakes fresh in the store daily, yet that is not the only thing that separates it from other cupcake chains. Gigi’s also doesn’t like to waste its goods at the end of the day, so they decide to give back to the community. “We have a list of folks who we can call and donate leftover cupcakes to and they take them to shelters,” Burton said. “Or sometimes we will take them to our business partners in the plazas we are located in. We don’t waste anything. We

either donate or take the items to build relationships with those around us.” Nick Pappas, the owner of all the Gigi’s Cupcake stores in Indianapolis and the surrounding area, is personally thrilled to have a location in Carmel. “We are absolutely proud to have another Hamilton County Gigi’s here,” he said. “We have close ties to Hamilton County. We’ve raised our children here, this is our home, and we are really happy that the community has accepted Gigi’s cupcakes into their homes.” Gigi’s has a different cupcake menu for each day of the week in addition to the daily baker’s special as well. Summer hours are 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, call 663-8553.

Studio owners pushing for yoga in public schools By Adam Aasen • email@example.com There are tons of distractions that can prevent a child from learning at school. Emotional problems, self-esteem issues, Attention Deficit Disorder and troubles focusing exercise are all a hindrance. But some local organizers believe a few deep breaths and a centered peace of mind can help reduce these problems. Body, Mind and Core, a yoga studio that opened in Carmel this past fall, is leading a campaign to try to bring yoga into public school. Owners Matt and Natalie Hayden continually host events to raise funds to help pay for fulltime instructors to teach students how to focus, stretch, relax and stay grounded. After moving to Indianapolis one year ago, Matt got involved with a local yoga-based nonprofit, called Mighty Lotus, and eventually was named director of the board. Mighty Lotus now has weekly yoga classes at two Indianapolis Public Schools: SUPER School 19 and Eleanor Skillen School 34. And Natalie taught yoga to students at West Clay Elementary during ISTEP week this year. Mighty Lotus organizers know parents and teachers could be skeptical of yoga, so they have conducted and compiled detailed research that shows that students who participate in yoga classes focus better in school and have fewer behavioral problems in class.
Body, Mind and Core owners Matt and Natalie Hayden would like to see yoga taught in public schools. (Photo by Adam Aasen)
“I’ve always told Natalie, ‘I wish I would have had yoga in elementary school. I might not have gotten into trouble,’” Matt said with a laugh. One issue that has come up is that people tend to lump yoga with religious practices because of its meditation and inspirational mantras. But recent court cases have ruled that yoga is not considered a religion and can be taught in schools. The goal is to pay instructors about $1,800 a year to teach the classes. Matt said this is a better system than relying on unpaid volunteers
because it helps recruit specially trained instructors who know how yoga can benefit childhood education. To raise funds and awareness, Body, Mind and Core offers weekly “Community Flow” classes where donations are raised. In April, they conducted a fashion show with a silent auction that raised $3,500 for their cause, which means two more schools are now funded. Their next big fundraiser is an after-party for the Monumental Yoga event in downtown Indianapolis from 6 to 11 p.m. on June 21. Matt recently met with former Indianapolis Colts player Marlin Jackson to find ways they can team up. Jackson not only raises funds for his Fight for Life Foundation, but he regularly practices yoga himself. Of course, you don’t have to be a football player to excel in yoga, which Natalie said is why it is so beneficial for kids and teenagers. So many girls have issues with accepting their bodies at a young age, and she believes yoga can help them get in touch with who they are. “I was clumsy and klutzy, but I grew into my own when I found yoga,” she said. “This is something where you don’t have to be an athlete. You can be awkward or shy and you can find something that you can succeed at build your esteem. You can be the star on this little two-by-six foot yoga mat.” For more information visit www.mightylotus. org or www.bodymindandcore.com.

Custom Glam Girl going global By Pete Smith • email@example.com Any one who has ever spent time in Broad Ripple knows that The Teeki Hut is an institution, creating custom T-shirts while business people wait. And Carmel owners Denise and Greg Hayes said they were extremely close to opening a second location in Carmel. They had lease documents in hand and workers measuring spaces for a build-out. But then an opportunity they couldn’t pass up landed in front of them. Now the Hayes couple spend most of their days in a quiet Carmel factory with views of the Palladium – creating custom T-shirts and hoodies and hawking their wares around the world instead of around the village. Their new business is Custom Glam Girl and its specialty is taking high-quality American Apparel clothing, bedazzling it with rhinestones based on the bridal and bachelorette themed templates on its website and then shipping it anywhere in the world. Denise Hayes said that the company has even made clothes for such high-profile customers as Jay-Z, Heidi Klum and Britney Spears. They feel that the marriage of the two companies will lead to a rapid growth cycle and they said they hope to double in size in the next year. And while the Teeki Hut can offer clothes as outrageous as the buyer’s imagination, Custom
Owners Greg and Denise Hayes think that’s there’s unlimited growth potential for their online retail business, Custom Glam Girl. (Staff photo)
Glam Girl’s products are more focused. “Our focus is higher quality,” Greg Hayes said. “It’s more blinged out. It’s more expensive.” He said he thinks the next expansion will occur as the company begins to target cheerleading teams, dance groups and beauty salons. The plan is to start locally. And despite the company’s focus on brides, the Hayes’ elves are not frantically designing shirts, cutting vinyl guides and stamping rhinestones in the summer marriage season. Surprisingly, they said fall and winter are expected to be their busiest time. Denis Hayes said, “Football season will be huge for us.” For more information visit www.customglamgirl.com.

Wounded Warrior Project hopes to raise $50k By Chris Bavender • firstname.lastname@example.org Two months after Army Sgt. Joey Johnson returned home from nearly a year-long tour of duty in Afghanistan he was paralyzed in an April 2012 motorcycle accident. fundraiser “I reached up to my sunglasses and got caught in the slipstream of a truck and overcorrected and smoked a mailbox at 50 mph – mailbox one, Joey zero,” the 26-year-old said. “I was paralyzed from about the middle of my chest down. I’ve made peace with it. I make paraplegic jokes – it’s a coping mechanism.” Another coping mechanism for Johnson – who is a Purple Heart recipient and was also awarded the Bronze Star Medal with V device (for acts of heroism) – is talking to fellow veterans as a volunteer with the Wounded Warrior Project. Founded in 2002, the organization offers programs, services and events to wounded veterans. “It helps us reintegrate back into the community because you become used to the military thing but then come home and might be missing a limb or suffering from (post-traumatic stress disorder) and it’s tough because you aren’t sure how to acclimate back into society,” Johnson said. “It can help with finding jobs or just getting you out of your house.” To help continue its mission on a local level, American Legion Post 155 in Carmel will host a fundraiser at 1:30 p.m. June 21 (rain date is June
22). The event grew out of a backyard music fest chairman Dan Cisek hosted for 23 years. “I stopped it because it got to be a lot of work at the house, but a lot of friends wanted a grand finale. So back in December someone suggested we have it at the post,” Cisek said. “So, one day I was watching TV and the Wounded Warrior Project commercial came on and I thought ‘By gosh, if we are going to have a grand finale musicians’ party it should be for a cause.’” The event will feature seven bands, including the Carmel School of Rock students, food, beer, a raffle and other events. Cisek said the organization hopes to raise at least $50,000. “We have been very lucky that all our vendors have donated all the food, etc. – even the raffle prizes are donated,” he said. Rock Effron, former commander of Post 155 and a member of the Post’s executive board, said he hopes the event will not only raise a lot of money for the Wounded Warrior Project, but also raise awareness of the mission of the American Legion.
“This is what we are here for, this is what we do,” said Rock – an Army veteran who did two tours of duty in Vietnam. “We are not just a bunch of old people sitting around telling stories. We help children and homeless vets and do so many other things. This is what we do and who we are.” Effron has mentored Johnson for several years. “He’s a great young man, a hero and a mentor for young kids coming back home – even the older ones,” he said. “Since he went to Afghanistan he has done a lot to help out at the post just being here to talk to vets coming home. We listen – we don’t judge. And we try to give all the help and support we can. Talking to a psychiatrist doesn’t do it – talking to another vet who has been there will help.” Johnson said he hopes people attending the fundraiser will walk away with a better understanding about organizations helping veterans. Tickets for the Wounded Warrior Project fundraiser are $20 in advance and available at Post 155, as well as other posts, and are $25 the day of the event.

Military brats remember their fathers’ and mothers’ commitment to our nation, and one local U.S. Air Force daughter was inspired enough to write a song about her father’s music service. Rooted deep in American pride, Carmel Elementary School music teacher Cindy Baney’s song, “Honor,” was recently performed at New York’s Carnegie Hall. “Honor” was written and arranged by Baney and was chosen for New York City’s Memorial Day Concert at Carnegie Hall in May. The New England Symphony and a 150-voice choir performed it. For Baney, it was a milestone for her as a musician. Her father, retired Lt. Col. Bill Ensign, was the main inspiration for the song as well as all men and women serving our nation. “In 2003, Mayor (Jim) Brainard appointed my dad to chair a committee called the Carmel Clay Veterans Memorial Commission. He and some other former military officers were responsible for sending out a call for patriotic sculptures to be submitted for the future Carmel Clay Veterans Memorial at Freedom Circle in Carmel,” Baney said. “In addition, they were to raise the funds to erect the monument chosen and it occurred to me that I could write a song as a tribute to my dad and all other military people that depicted childhood memories I had of my

dad leaving for his time on active duty.” As a little girl, she vividly remembers standing on the back porch with her mom and siblings, watching him wave goodbye to them as he would leave. “My goal in writing the song was to both thank and give honor to all veterans with a dual purpose of also educating my students about the one thing that they can do at this point in their lives, which is to be gratefully aware of the protection provided by our past and present soldiers that they live under,” she said. “I wanted to put the words to say into their mouths, so they could be ready to speak them as well.” The road to Carnegie Hall “It began with making an initial CD of patriot-
ic songs, first in 2003 and the next one in 2009. It was a low-budget thing, where I pre-recorded all instrumental tracks at Roger Baker’s Toyland Studios and the choir then took a field trip to Aire Born Studios where we recorded the songs in as few takes as possible.” Baney said. “Not an easy task with eighty 9- and 10-year-olds!” The CDs were given as a gift to many veterans, with 500 given to the Veterans Memorial Commission, Baney said. That was how commission member Col. Robert Book, a former U.S. Marine, came to hear “Honor.” As patrons of the Carmel Symphony Orchestra, Book and his wife, Jeannie, played the recording for conductor David Bowden, who commissioned a full orchestral arrangement of the song. The choral and orchestral version premiered on Nov. 9, 2012, at the Palladium, with Carmel Elementary School and Creekside Middle School students accompanied by the CSO. And it was performed again in May 2013, by the Columbus Children’s Choir (under the direction of Ruth Dwyer) and the Columbus Philharmonic. “Ruth Dwyer is one of the main conductors of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, and her father was also a military veteran - one of the founders of Grissom Air Force Base, actually,” Baney said. “She is the one who selected the song to be sung by at Carnegie Hall.” To hear the song visit www.vimeo. com/62813543.

Commentary by Jeff Worrell Contrary to anything you might have heard, volunteering at CarmelFest is fun. It isn’t all just about picking VOlunteerism up trash. As a matter of fact, nine out 10 festival experts recently noted CarmelFest attendees are more likely to use a trash receptacle. This fact alone could make our Trash Troopers obsolete. But, we are in search of 400 volunteers willing to work myriad of jobs. Each year, the Carmel Lions Club provides the manpower to line up the Centier Bank CarmelFest Parade entries for step off at 10:30 a.m. July 4. But once the Centier Parade is under way, we need parade marshals to help keep it moving along smoothly. Maybe a three-hour shift in this capacity will give you the sense of satisfaction you seek. During the two-day festival you could help with set-up, tear down, traffic and parking lot control, operating kids rides, hawking Spark Buttons, staffing information booths, selling ride tickets, providing directions and maybe a little light refuse collection. No matter what your talent or your time availability, we promise a rewarding volunteer experience, introduction to people you have never met and the overwhelming gratitude of a grateful community.

Jade the dog, center, was taken from an abusive situation. She has no teeth, has tumors and is petrified of other dogs. Because of overrowding she stays in the office of the Humane Society for Hamilton County. (Photo by Sara Crawford.)
The Humane Society’s shelter is full to the brim, prompting the need for foster homes and possibly a new facility By Adam Aasen • firstname.lastname@example.org Despite her problems, Jade is a happy dog. She might not have any teeth, but she still has a big smile. This black pit bull had her teeth pulled out cover story by her previous owner when they forced her to breed. She’s covered with scars from past injuries and very large tumors. Despite her traumatic life, she absolutely loves people and sniffs anybody that passes by. But Jade is afraid of other dogs, so she spends her days in the office of Rebecca Stevens, executive director of the Humane Society for Hamilton County. That’s because there’s literally no other space for this sick dog. And this isn’t a unique situation. The shelter – the only one for the county – is extremely full. One cat that has leukemia lives in their conference room. The problem is compounded by the fact that there’s no area to quarantine sick or contagious animals. Take a tour and people will see there’s no wasted space. “There’s an animal everywhere,” Stevens said. “We are dealing with a lot of serious challenges in a lot of areas, but we are trying to overcome them to the best of our abilities and save these lives.” The Human Society for Hamilton County is still committed to remaining a no-kill shelter, which means they only euthanize pets in extreme situations. They don’t turn away any intakes, even if the shelter doesn’t have room. As a result, there’s a huge reliance on using foster homes for nearly half the dogs and cats in their care. At its May board meeting, there was talk about fundraising for a new larger facility. There have been no public announcements, but they are looking to launch a capital campaign to raise up to $7 million. At the end of May, there were 219 cats in the shelter’s care, 101 in foster homes and 113 dogs in its care, 32 in foster homes. The animals are dealing with upper respiratory infections and eye infections because the pets are kept in such close proximity
to one another that it’s difficult to avoid spreading illnesses. As a result, the shelter spends more than $100,000 on medical care, a cost that is paid for through private donations and not from taxpayer money. Stevens said foster homes are an absolute necessity to remain no-kill and open admission, but it can be hard to recruit new people. There are so many roadblocks. Some people are afraid they will get too attached and won’t be able to give up the pet. Some dogs and cats have special needs, such as problems with other animals. And of course there are many misconceptions, such as cost. But the shelter pays for any expenses such as medical care, crates, food and even kitty litter. “It doesn’t cost you any money or a lot of your time. All you need to provide is love,” said Paula Fuccillo, who is currently fostering a border collie who was attacked by other dogs and has a broken leg.
Benefits of more space
donor stepped up with $10,000 to install a new air conditioning system. Americana Bank sponsors the foster program and helps pay for the associated costs. And Carmel City Councilor Kevin “Woody” Rider donates all of the gravel for the outdoor play areas. But the biggest challenge will be raising money for a new shelter. Stevens said it can be a politically sensitive issue so she’s enlisted the help of Carmel City Councilor Luci Snyder to help navigate those waters. Snyder said the biggest help would be finding someone to donate land for the approximately 20,000 square-foot facility. She said they are open to most locations. “Maybe there’s someone out there with five acres of land that isn’t really sellable but would be perfect for our needs,” she said. The Humane Society is looking to spend $5,000 on a consultant to help determine the needs for the new shelter. It is also looking Kermit the kitten is one of many animals that the Humane Society for Hamilton County hopes wiil be taken in by a foster family.
Rebecca Stevens, executive director of the Humane Society for Hamilton County, said that with more space the organization could • Cut down on illnesses spreading, which would save money. • Dedicate space to addressing behavioral problems, which means pets are more adoptable. • Expand their current program that provides pets for military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. • Provide services that generate needed revenue, such as camps and training courses.
Fundraising for the future Stevens said one common misconception is that the county pays for all of the shelter’s costs. In reality, taxpayer dollars only cover the first seven days that an animal is in the shelter. From then on, all of the rest of the financial support comes from private donations. If a dog is hit by a car, the entirety of that cost is privately funded. As a result, the Humane Society is always looking for new donors. The cost per animal averages out to be about $8.50 per day. Because there are so many costs, most of the donations go toward basic needs. Recently, there wasn’t even air conditioning in the hot garage where dogs are kenneled. One dog suffered heat stroke as temperatures reached upwards of 90 degrees. They were using a portable unit, but that died. Fortunately, a
at hiring a professional fundraiser for the project. Some people might think the solution is just to change the nokill policy to alleviate overcrowding, but Stevens doesn’t see that as an option. She appreciates everything the county has done, but she said she needs more space. “This was a great building when we moved in in 2006 but from day one that we moved in we didn’t have enough space,” she said. “The building is designed for an animal control facility that would euthanize dogs and cats, but we are a no-kill organization and we do not want to change that.” Get involved

Window of chance surpises daughter during Field Day
FR O M T H E BACKSHOP City is deserving of ‘best’ award You might know that Carmel has been named a Top 10 Best City for Kids by livability. com, which does such an annual ranking. Carmel’s heft in this category is of no surprise to us. With our schools, playscapes, parks and low crime rates, the city is uniquely positioned as the leader among all northside Indianapolis markets. According to the city, researchers identified cities with high concentrations of school-age children, then took a look at how their schools stacked up and analyzed factors like childhood mortality rates, health insurance coverage, crime rates and the percentage of restaurants that feature kids’ menus. Also taken into account were the number of libraries and recreational venues geared specifically for children, as well as the availability of great options for parents. Carmel also was cited for being environmentally friendly and for having multiple bicycling and walking trails. Researchers spoke nothing of the Carmel Farmers’ Market, which we find to be outstanding, or CarmelFest and other events, which we solidly support. It’s a winning environment for kids and their parents. How could it not rank nationally? ••• One of us is a former word guy, having spent the vast majority of his newspaper career on the news side of the business. He was a reporter, then an editor and lastly a department head. So, when The Associated Press tweeted last week that its new stylebook would allow the use of “over” when meaning “more than” or “during,” we both shuddered. This is simply the continuing degradation of grammar in America. In general, our countrymen comprise a lazy lot with respect to English usage, so Americans typically say, “It’s over $100,” when they mean, “It’s more than $100.” How about “over the weekend”? It should be “during the weekend,” Over is a spatial term, plain and simple. This, however, is a war we will not win – except with respect to its use in your newspaper.

Commentary by Danielle Wilson
Venture into mentoring Commentary by Terry Anker A civic board on which I have some responsibility for planning an annual retreat decided this year to invite a professional moderator to facilitate the discussion with the goal of making what is always an expensive day (in both terms of time and treasure) realize a sufficient return on its investment to be justified. Added to considerable use of staff time and even more from the 15 trustees, many of whose hourly rate would be staggering if so measured, the fixed costs of food and sundries will be the fee of the facilitator. We have selected wisely and expectations are high that the organization will benefit enormously from an organized review. The business of coaching, mentoring, advising, consulting and facilitating generates billions in fee revenue annually. Ostensibly the billions are turned into trillions in benefit to the folks mentored and the companies who employ them. As with any maturing industry, competition brings the best performers to the top and drives contenders to distinguish themselves in the
marketplace. The worst rely on platitudes, truisms and catch phrases to sell books, videos and all manner of claptrap. The best deploy carefully developed assessment tools and advanced emotional intelligence to find what’s great in us and bring it forward. But what makes us think we are qualified to mentor any other human – for pay or not? Is their asking enough? Assuming the role requires something significant. What are the traits of one who listens, evaluates and then mentors? Where are the failings of one who talks, dismisses and then ventors? If we vent our own self-perceived wisdom on the mentee, have we really helped them or simply reinforced our own insecurities? The upside to a solid mentoring relationship is significant – even worth the occasional ventoring episode – so, invest in one. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

- Mark Twain
Many nights I go to bed thinking I am a mediocre mom, but every once in a while, I orchestrate a magical parenting humor moment and receive at least some validation that my children won’t be in therapy long. I experienced one of those times recently, so take note. There may not be another for two to six months. My youngest was participating in Field Day, and had begged my husband to come see her in just one event. His schedule was tight though, and it would be a miracle if he could take two conference calls, pick up the dog from the kennel, monitor our feverish son staying home from school, and remember to feed himself. Even for a talented multitasker, which I wouldn’t necessarily call Doo, the morning wouldn’t be busy. Trying to squeeze in a driveby to watch our daughter jump rope at 10:07 a.m. would possibly have him in Cuckoo-ville by noon. I did what I could to appease my own guilt of missing her big day. I had tucked her in the night before with “Have fun!” and “Don’t forget your sunscreen!” That morning, I packed her a special lunch, and covered the brown-paper bag with well-wishes. As I drove off to work though, I still felt miserable. She’d probably be the only kid without a cheering parent. But when I got to my school and looked at the tweaked schedule for final exams, I realized that my prep period would coincide with an extended lunch, giving me approximately ninety minutes of absolutely no teacher responsibility whatsoever. Hot damn! I called Doo, told him my plan, and went to work figuring out how to play hooky. (The secretary had my cell in case of a math emergency, but for whatever reason, when the bell rang, I rushed out with my head down and sunglasses on, hoping to blend with the throng of students should someone check the video feed!) By the grace of God, I arrived at my daughter’s school about five minutes before her 200 yard dash. When she saw me, the smile on her face was absolutely brilliant. She finished sixth, just shy of a ribbon, and on the next race, a relay, earned a third. I was only there 25 minutes, but was able to give lots of high fives and “I’m so proud of yous!” As I hugged her to say goodbye, she replied, “Thank you so much for coming to my field day, Mommy!” And thank you, my darling Maddie, for reminding me what’s important, and for letting me sometimes be a good mom. Peace out.

Brilliant strategy to induce exercise Commentary by Chris Hoyt Former Mayor of New York Mike Bloomberg thought he was being clever when he outlawed sugary drinks larger than satire 16 ounces. Not to be outdone, City of Carmel leaders have devised a much more complex and radical plan to get residents in shape. What’s so brilliant about Carmel’s plan? Simple. It is disguised as an infrastructure improvement project. Carmel residents have been enduring an epic construction project this year, with the main stretch of U.S. 31 closed, many “side projects,” and constant re-direction. It just seemed strange to me that anyone would think closing and clotting up so many high-traffic roadways along the same commutes was a good idea. Then I realized that right before all this construction started, the Monon Trail through Carmel had been completed. Hmm…. I did some digging and got ahold of an anonymous lead at INDOT, whose name I cannot disclose. “Oh yes, this was all planned out,” the person explained. “Having the Monon Trail finished was step one. Step two was making sure all the main roads were virtually impassable during high-traffic periods. Our goal was to make it as desirable as possible to walk or bike instead of drive. With traffic this bad, residents are compelled to bike or walk, and they don’t even see the connection!” My informant went on to explain that INDOT got the results it wanted right away. “The weather hasn’t been great, and traffic isn’t always bad. People have been working around it by changing their schedules. To combat this we set up a Step Three. Now we have construction vehicles and trucks on the roads 24/7 to keep people from going much past 30 mph. Now bikes are looking much better,” the source said. “Has the city started to see the results yet?” I asked. “The needle is moving, pedestrian traffic on the Monon is finally going up. However, we realized the big problem is hope. As long as people have hope of the construction ending, they are willing to endure it,” the source said. “Step Four is going to be to have a series of delays and

HAIL OR WIND DAMAGE? long-standing ambiguous schedules so that people get discouraged.” The motive for all this is hard to pin down. My informant just knew about the plan, but not the politics. “If I had to guess,” the person said, “there is only so much you can do to make fancy buildings, I bet they just wanted to upgrade the people.” So be it for vanity or health concerns. It is clear they won’t stop until Carmelites all look like CrossFit posters. “So just to be clear,” I asked, “this was all planned out from the start?” The person nodded, “Oh, yes, of course. I mean, why else would a thriving city put businesses at risk with multiple projects and closures all around a single area. That would be … well, that would just be idiotic. No, this was ingenious.” I am afraid I have to agree. After all, as a megalomaniacal narcissist bent on world domination, I can’t help but notice and appreciate such a well-done, evil plan.

Editor, It’s obvious from the Current in Carmel story and picture why one local Kiwanis Club is stagnant – its membership doesn’t include any women. In 1988, I was one of the three first female members to be inducted into the Bloomington Rotary Club, which had been entirely male since being founded in 1918. One local businessman, who left the club in protest, told me a year later when he rejoined the club that he had been wrong and that the female members had
brought new life to Rotary. Monroe County now has three active Rotary clubs, all of which include female members and all of which support numerous civic projects that enrich the community. The Kiwanis and Lions clubs in Monroe County have also accepted women as members and are stronger than ever.

Editor, Your stories on the problems facing a Kiwanis Club and the CHS Alumni Association were thought-provoking. Sadly, the Kiwanians are disbanding, and the alumni group, while not disbanding, does have its problems as your story noted. In both cases the situations are part of a more widespread problem. Too many of our people are ignoring community organizations, preferring instead to pursue personal pleasure: watching hour upon hour of TV or computer, or perhaps playing golf, dining out morning, noon and night or pursuing other diversions. But volunteering with organizations that support the community is not on the radar screen. If we don’t reverse this trend, there will be other good groups that will have similar fates. In fact, I think it’s easy to see that many of our
service, charitable and faith-based groups are not attracting enough new members and workers to fill the ranks as time goes on. It might not be too late to save the CHS Alumni Association, but it was disheartening to hear the high school vice principal’s comment about the school not being “affiliated” with the association. The schools should be affiliated with their alumni. Many high schools and most colleges nurture their alumni groups for the benefit of the school. In Carmel’s case we are talking about alumni who appreciate their former school, have been paying their taxes to support it for years and merely want to maintain an “affiliation.” Seems like that would be a good idea for the schools to latch onto. Fred Swift, 46032
126th St. intersection needs to be reconfigured Editor, The intersection just east of Range Line Road on 126th Street and Auman Drive is one of the most ridiculous 3-way stops here in Carmel. I wonder why we paid so much money to construct a roundabout over Keystone Parkway to provide a safe, expeditious flow of traffic on 126th Street and then have this 3-way stop to prevent the original purpose. The peak traffic periods catch automobiles blocking the intersection at Range Line Road and 126th Street in front
of City Center causing an unsafe condition. During one period, I counted 54 automobile stops at the intersection and not one came from Auman Drive. If the city really thinks this intersection is needed, then simply fund the money for a traffic signal allowing intersecting traffic from Auman Drive to be afforded a tripping device to support the flow. I am sure it would save fuel, fumes and some frustration for a few motorists. Robert Auscherman, 46033

Editor, In regard to your editorial in the June 3 Current in Carmel, I don’t think two white guys from Carmel get to decide what is or isn’t offensive to Native Americans. As far as I can tell, Native Americans find the term “Redskins” offensive,
Have an opinion?
and the name ought to be changed. Jesse Jackson was wrong to use the term ‘Hymietown,’ and I’m not the only liberal who thought so. That has no bearing on the Redskins issue. Jim Kraft, 46033

Technology conspiring against me Commentary by Dick Wolfsie I don’t like things going on in my house while I’m sleeping. I’m pretty hard on my appliances and after they’ve put in a good humor 12-14 hours, I think they should get the rest of the evening off. Plus, I can’t afford the overtime. When I hear noises in my house after midnight, it better be the cat or a burglar. I don’t want my dishwasher on time-and-a-half. In the evening, I also hear my computer grinding away. I know it’s up to no good and the result is that I’ve lost a great deal of trust in its operation. I am convinced that when the sun goes down, it has a hidden life. I thought there was something going on between my computer and the water heater, and now I’m pretty sure my printer is also in on this. My printer already had me on alert because it always has a little hissy-fit before it actually prints. As a result of all this, I am concerned about my computer’s reliability. So every once in a while, I test my e-mail by sending a message titled TEST. The other morning, instead of TEST, I simply typed my name: DICK WOLFSIE. Then I sent it to myself—or at least I thought I did. By mistake, I also sent it to 300 people on my newspaper column e-mail list. When these folks opened the e-mail, all it said was DICK WOLFSIE. Here’s what some folks had to say in response: (The screen names have been changed to
protect the not-so-funny.) BARMAN (my nephew): Hey, Uncle Dick. Funny stuff. The best you’ve written. YO926: Thanks for sending me your name. I used it all day today. I’m sending it back. Not getting a good response. TOOCUTE: I don’t get it. And I’ve read it three times. M78STUD: Hey, Dick. Thanks for sending me your name. I’ve sent it to 500 lawyers with a note that some rich guy rear-ended you in his Lexus. BRUCE: Not one of your best columns, Dick. No plot and only one weak character. GOGIRLJANE: Well written. Thank goodness for spell-check. UPSI: Please take me off your e-mail list. I have a 10-year-old. MAMAW (my sister): That’s nice. Does that count as a phone call? I’m not really sure how to end this column. Let’s just say that if I should ever send you my name again via e-mail, please treat it with some reverence. It’s more than 65 years old and deserves a little respect. And feel free to send me your name. I look forward to reading it.

Salute to the Military
The Centier CarmelFest Parade will continue its tradition of having a ‘Salute to the Military’ as the parade Grand Finale. We expect over 250 military personnel (retired and active) and their families to participate in this salute to all of those who have defended our country’s freedom. Past, present & newly enlisted military members & their families are invited to participate in the Military Salute Grand Finale. Pre-register by contacting parade co-chair Bec Hunter at (317) 407-1445 or toll free (866) 320-4988; or e-mail email@example.com To assure the comfort of our veterans and their families, CarmelFest will host a VIP tent offering food and refreshments for those marching in the parade.
Strike Up the Band by Cindy Roberts-Greiner
Centier Bank Sponsors Parade Centier Bank, Indiana’s largest private family-owned bank, stepped up to sponsor the 4th of July Parade for CarmelFest 2014. Since 1895, the Centier Bank’s Schrage family has built a legacy of success, not merely through business, but through philanthropy that extends throughout the communities it serves. The Centier CarmelFest Parade is set for 10:30 am–12:30 pm on Friday, July 4th. This Patriotic Parade will begin at AAA Way & Carmel Drive (near the new branch location for Centier Bank). A complete Parade route is listed at www.CarmelFest.net.
There is nothing quite like a community 4th of July Parade. When I think about the festivities, the words of the infamous Professor Harold Hill from the “Music Man” ring in my ears …”Seventy-six trombones led the big parade. With a hundred cornets close at hand. They were followed by rows and rows of the finest virtuo-Sos, the cream of ev'ry famous band.” The Centier CarmelFest Parade may not have seventy-six trombones and hundred coronets, but we will have award-winning marching bands from Carmel and surrounding schools, color guards, cheerful clowns, mini-cars, strolling characters & sports mascots, motorcycle teams and lots more. According to Parade Director, Peggy Powell,
“There are over 81 entries in this year’s parade, including more than 18 decorative floats.” One of the many new entries this year includes the Nationalities Council of Indiana with over 200 people dressed in ethic costumes from countries around the world. This colorful display will add an international flare to the parade. As always, you can stake out your favorite parade viewing spot the night before the event – with complete assurance that your chairs and blankets will be right where you left them on the next morning. Bring out the family, invite your friends and join the community on July 4th for the Centier CarmelFest parade!

Huey Lewis & the News to grace Palladium stage
By Joseph Knoop • firstname.lastname@example.org Anyone having flashbacks about life in the 1980s surely will have an accompanying mental soundtrack filled with songs by music Huey Lewis & the News playing right along. They were virtually synonymous with the time – their music could be heard all over the radio, in movie soundtracks and even on the fledgling MTV station. But time never stopped ticking for the nation or the band, which has continued to fill concert halls and record music ever since. Now Huey Lewis & the News is ready to return to our consciousness again with a concert at Palladium in Carmel on June 11. The band, entering its 35th year together, is most known for 80’s rock hits “Back in Time” and “The Power of Love,” both featured in the iconic movie “Back to the Future.” But the new set list is sure to include songs like “Workin’ for a Livin’” and “Hip to be Square.” In an exclusive interview with Current, Lewis took the time to tell people what to expect. “Everyone loves the hits of course, but we try to mix it up a bit and play some different stuff to keep it fresh,” he said. “I’ve also changed the
style of my shirt at least twice now!” Formed from two San Francisco Bay-area bands that often acted as rivals in 1979, the News went on to create a uniquely ’80s sound, by combining R&B and soul with a rock influence and the indelible saxophone section. Lewis developed a love of music early on and began playing the harmonica at the age of 13. After graduating boarding school, he hitchhiked through Western Europe for a year while playing his music. His former band, Clover, played three to four sets a night for five or more nights a week for six years before being signed by Phonogram Records in London. It wasn’t until Clover’s disbandment that Lewis moved to San Francisco. In 1977, he began forming what would become the News, which released their first record in 1980. Lewis said he considers himself a showman, and he has acted on Broadway, filmed the 2000 movie “Duets” with Gwenyth Paltrow and has even guest-starred on the TV Land sitcom “Hot in Cleveland.” But the spontaneous nature of the stage is where he keeps returning. “In the old days, music performances were live and used to be captured on record,” Lewis said. “Now performances tend to be created
- pieced together. The waistlines have also changed a little since the ’80s!” The band loves to play for every type of crowd, certainly an indicator of each member’s modest origins. “I’ve never really thought of Huey Lewis & The News as an ’80s band, but people do like to categorize,” Lewis said. “We love to play for the fans everywhere. You never know what you might find on any given night.” Saxophonist and founding member Johnny Colla developed his chops in the San Francisco music scene for years, inspired and drawn in by the 1960s “Summer of Love” movement. And he said he remains driven by a fervent News fanbase. “Sure, we’re the Tony Bennetts of our generation,” Colla said in a statement. “But it’s not such a bad way to go. I can think of worse jobs.” As a band that has stood the test of time, Lewis believes there’s one thing that fans might not anticipate. “We all still like each other!” Lewis said.

On May 31, Paris Proctor, niece of celebrity photographer and artist, Pamela Mougin, held a life celebration memorial and silent auction of Mougin’s works. Fashion consultant Murph Damron registered guests and supervised sales of the auction pieces. Mougin was internationally known for bold, original and innovative styles. After modeling in high school and after graduation, she decided she preferred working behind the camera. She opened a photography studio in Indianapolis and soon became the city’s top fashion photographer. She was eventually introduced to Shelly Brown, wife of then-Pacers coach, Larry Brown. Once word spread among NBA players, Mougin’s career kicked into high gear. Soon celebrity clients such as Sheryl Crow and Eddie Murphy commissioned her services. Mougin opened a studio in Denver for a period of time, then moved back to central Indiana in 2012. During her time away, she traveled extensively, notably to Cuba and Greece where she drew inspiration for two arresting collections. Back in Indiana, she stayed with best friend, Carrie Ann Jordan and family, of Zionsville, while establishing a studio near 54th Street and the Monon Trail. She displayed portraits of stars in her studio, but the biggest attraction was the Angels of West Baden display. In 2005-2006, Mougin was commissioned to create life-size images of the original angel paintings which have been hidden for more than 100 years in the dome of the West Baden Springs Hotel in French Lick. The origins of these paintings are a mystery and remain hidden from view. However, the public is able to view Mougin’s recreation of “The Angels of West Baden.” About 60 friends, family and art collectors joined together to honor the life of Pamela Mougin, including Penny Proctor, sister of Mougin, and Marilene Isaacs , owner of “Center of Peace.” Isaacs is currently working on a film involving the Angels of West Baden. Most collectors came from the Carmel and Zionsville areas. Madison Hromadka, who attended with her husband, Tyler Hromadka, and parents, Ted Hanulak and Margot Hanulak, knew Mougin through various fashion organizations. Dianne Wright, a long-time friend from Carmel, purchased a piece at the silent auction. Rick Ropkey and Naji Ropkey from Zionsville, purchased a large giclee print of an antique plane. Ropkey owns and collects antique planes, and the one in the picture happened to be one of his. Dr. Ed Kowlowitz, from Zionsville, purchased a couple of giclee prints of antique cars to go with his antique car collection. His wife, Dr. Alina Clavijo, purchased a set of frames to complement recent photographs taken in Paris.
The most expensive art piece at the silent auction, which sold for $30,000, was a hand-painted photo headboard bed and bedding created by David B. Nickel and artist Pamela Mougin. (Photos by Tonya Burton)
Carrie Ann Jordan of Zionsville said she maintained a long-time friendship with artist Pamela Mougin. Her son, Solomon, and daughter, Iris, joined her for the auction of Mougin’s work

Young actors take center stage in ‘Pinocchio Jr.’
By Jessica Fox • firstname.lastname@example.org “What does a parent have to do to be a good parent?” That’s the question that Geptheatre petto will have to answer in the Junior Civic’s production of “My Son, Pinocchio Jr.” The performance offers an alternate perspective on the classic Disney fairy tale about a puppet hoping to become a real boy. According to the performance’s director, Brent Marty, the musical is a twist on the original “Pinocchio.” This musical is told from the point of view of Geppetto, Pinocchio’s father. The musical will include a student ensemble and a live orchestra. The Junior Civic program gives children ages 7 to 14 the opportunity to perform in a professional setting. Marty said they come away from the experience seeing the whole production professionally put together. The “My Son, Pinocchio Jr.” musical is just a part of the education Civic offers to students at the Tarkington Theatre. The Tarkington offers classes as well as a vocal camp during the summer months. Vocal Director Trevor Fanning began directing the theater’s chorus in 2007. His job is to help the students memorize lyrics and work the songs into the performance. Instead of working the songs and the script in different segments,

the students practice their vocals during each performance. This musical will include both traditional and new music. Traditional songs include Disney’s “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings.” Stephen Schwartz, the composer and lyricist of the musical “Wicked,” wrote the remainder of the show’s music. The students are still in the process of putting everything together, but the directors know it will all come together in the end. There are no small parts in this musical, and everyone’s roles are equally important to the production.
According to Marty, “Watching the students learn the process of producing a play (is the best part of directing).” The students singing in the ensemble are just as excited for the performance as the director. While most the students have had previous acting experience, each of the students still remains enthusiastic for their chance in the spotlight. “It will be a great show with talented directors, choreography, kids and amazing songs,” said 11-year-old Ethan Gold, a student at West Clay Elementary. Ethan has been in two other Junior Civic productions including “Jack and the Beanstalk” and “Once Upon a Shoe.” The rest of the students seem to share in his enthusiasm. “It’s going to be a great show. It’s funny and entertaining,” said 13-year-old Megan McCabe, a student at Noblesville East Middle School. “I really love musical theatre… it’s fun to watch and it’s cool,” said 11-year-old Amelie Zirnheld, a student at Schneider Academy. “My Son, Pinocchio Jr.” • A production by the Junior Civic program • 7 p.m. June 13; 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. June 14; and 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. June 16 through June 18 • The Tarkington Theatre at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel • Tickets start at $15 • For more information call 923-4597 or visit www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org

Porsches cruising through town
By Sophie Pappas • email@example.com Car lovers and fashion enthusiasts are uniting for this year’s CruZionsville Porsche show on June 14, when the Central Indiana cars Region Porsche Club of America hosts its fourth annual Porsche event on Main Street. “It’s a lot of nice people doing a lot of nice things to make this happen,” said founder of the CruZionsville show and Zionsville resident Steve Tarr. All proceeds of the event will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of America. Last year the event raised $12,800 for Alzheimer’s research. The goal for this year is $25,000. “It’s just a great event,” said Amy Lacy, a Zionsville resident who is also active in raising money for Alzheimer’s research. Tarr named the event CruZionsville, which means the cars are “cruising” through town.
At 10 a.m. the day of the event, more than 125 cars will cruise from Zionsville Meadows, down Oak Street, and then park along Main Street. The free car show will end at 3 p.m. Some of the cars in attendance include historic Porsches. Members of the Porsche club will also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911. Only two of these 911 Porsches are in the state of Indiana, and one will be in Zionsville for the show. Tarr said that the event is about bringing people together, and exposing Zionsville to the rest of the state. He has even had assistance from the Boone County Covention Visitors Bureau. “It’s really not about how new your car is,” Tarr said. Also during the day, there will be events for kids, a fashion show directed by local fashionista Nikki Blaine, and a food eating competition. “We’ve got some beautiful cars coming,” Tarr said. “But there will be something for everyone.”

Garden tour offers relaxing views By Chris Bavender • firstname.lastname@example.org

For $10, people will get a map for a self-guided tour of gardens and porches of 12 homes (up from eight last year) in Carmel’s historic Old Town area. The event is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 14. Maps are available outside the Monon Depot Museum on the Monon Trail. “We were looking for other opportunities to engage the Old Town district and be outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.

And you can take a walk on a nice afternoon in June.” The map shows the gardens and porches of the homes on the tour, with each marked with a sign and the Historical Society’s logo in the front yard. “It lets you explore people’s private garden plots and check out their front porch,” Keiser said. “The homeowners are there and like to talk to people about what they have done. You might be surprised at some of the little private gardens they have with fountains and rocks and sitting areas. Last year one even had a chandelier in the garden.” The money raised from the tour maps helps the Historical Society continue to work in the community, and it funds operating costs.

Recipe: Lamb with Spring Veggies and Orzo
Behind Bars: Chocolate Martini Bartender: Vickie Lenk at Moon Dog Tavern, 4825 E. 96th St., Indianapolis
Ingredients: 1 pound of lamb roast, cut in 2-inch cubes; 1/2 bottle of red wine; 1/2 cup olive oil; Fresh oregano, thyme and rosemary; Tender baby kale or baby spinach, torn into bite sized pieces; 1 bunch of asparagus; 1 cup of grape tomatoes, sliced; 4 ounces of feta or goat cheese; 1/2 pound of orzo; 2 cups beef broth Directions: Marinate lamb cubes in a large Ziploc bag with the wine, olive oil and herbs. Add fresh cracked black pepper. Refrigerate at least one hour or overnight. Skewer and cook over a med flame until a pink center/med rare. Add oregano and thyme to broth and cook orzo according to package directions. At the last 2 minutes, add the asparagus. Drain & set aside. Orzo can be served warm or room temperature. Toss baby kale, sliced tomatoes and cheese into cooked orzo, place meat on top and sprinkle cheese on top. Both feta and goat cheese will taste fresher if you buy the block style. The pre-crumbled forms, while easier, have a desiccant coating that mask their true flavors. It is easy enough to use a fork to flake the cheese on top. Mangia!
Ingredients and directions: First, drizzle chocolate syrup in a martini glass. Mix 1 1/3 ounces Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur, 1 1/3 ounces Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur and 1 1/3 ounces Absolute Vanilla in a shaker and pour the contents in the glass.

Healthy bingo fun Commentary by Kathleen Connelly The kids have been waiting for this all year … summer is here! Honestly, I have been waiting too! I love summer and love fitness planning what activities we can do. However with a family of five it can be difficult to please everyone. So I have a suggestion that will help families have lots of healthy fun while including everyone in the planning process. Create your own Family Summer Bingo Board. It can be as large as you want it, 10 spots, 20 or maybe even 30. Now fill that board up with healthy challenges for the family to complete during June, July and August. Let everyone participate in choosing the activities. For example, for active spots, list hiking at Fort Benjamin Harrison, getting wet at the splash pad at Billericay Park or a bike ride after dinner. For healthy food challenges, create spots to try a new summer salad, go for a picnic at Holland Park or pick

strawberries at a one of the local farms. Reading is good for our brain fitness, so create a board spot for participating in the Fishers Library Summer Reading Program. If you want ideas for home, fill a spot with sprinkler fun in the afternoon or cooking dinner together for some quality family time. The possibilities are endless. Once your board is full of all of your family’s ideas for healthy activities for the summer, hang it up somewhere visible and start highlighting or crossing off activities as you complete them. You can even plan a reward like a family outing to the zoo or a museum trip at the end of the summer if all challenges get completed. I have many clients tell me they want to influence their kids to be healthy. My answer every time is your kids will be influenced by what you do not by what you say. Not every activity as to involve mom and dad, but try to make most of them family friendly. Maybe you even challenge another family to compete to see who can complete their board first. Take the challenge, create a family health bingo board and the whole family will stay healthy and happy throughout the summer months! Kathleen M.

Questions to ask a financial advisor Commentary by Adam Cmejla
Evaluating and hiring a financial advisor to serve you and your family and handle your financial affairs is a very big finance decision and one that should be decided with much due diligence and intention. The next two columns, I’ll go over some questions that can be used as a guide when interviewing potential advisors to serve your family. How did you find the advisor?

"I opened Chromatics Studio, a photography business in Zionsville in 2010. Three years later in 2013 we added tuxedo rental as a second line of business. The decision to add tuxedo rental was a natural compliment to our high school senior and wedding photography business. I selected Current Publishing to do an advertising blitz in establishing our brand as a retailer of choice for tuxedo rental in Boone and Hamilton Counties. The campaign marketed our services to a wider audience because of the reach Current has. Feedback from our clients suggests that the campaign was very effective and resulted in a successful prom tuxedo season for us. I appreciate the support of our patrons that used our service this year and for many more to come. Visit our website at www.chromaticsstudio.com or call us at 317-847-4071.” - Haroon Ahmad, Owner/Photographer Certified/Member PPA, ASMP, PPI
Think about how the advisor came into your life. Was it through an advertisement in a publication or direct mail piece? Did you accept an invitation to a free dinner and sit through an educational workshop? Was it through a referral from a trusted friend or colleague that has an existing relationship with the advisor? Direct mail and workshops are not bad, but just know that there›s a reason that the advisor is hosting workshops or buying advertising spots. Is it to sell you something or is it truly educational in nature? Why is that person in the business? This is an important question that I think every advisor should know to their core and every client should know about their advisor. In my opinion, understanding the “why” of this business is just as important as the “how.” What is their intention in working with clients? Being clear on who they are and how they serve their clients can be a good indication on what to expect. What professional designations do they have? According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the self-regulated, not-for-profit organization authorized by Congress to protect American investors, there are 153 – count them, 153 – different designations that advisors can obtain to put after their name. The important thing to understand about these designations
is the varying level of mastery that›s required to obtain them. By searching the list at www. finra.org, you can learn all about any designation that your advisor may have after their name. A CFP practitioner (certified financial planner) is considered by many as one of a few pinnacle designations in our industry and which requires experience prerequisites, extensive studying and demonstrated mastery of the subject material. (Full disclosure: I am not a CFP practitioner, but I am currently studying through the materials and plan to sit for the national board exams in November 2014). How have they furthered their education? Many people don’t know that the barrier for entry in our profession is relatively low, and that’s in part due to the high attrition that occurs in our industry. Get the green light from a firm, study for a couple weeks or months for a few national securities licenses (which, by the way, are still written and governed by laws written in 1933, 1933 and 1940), and POOF – you’re now a financial advisor legally licensed to dispense financial advice to the general public. The same is true for life and health insurance licenses, which are needed to offer other financial vehicles such as annuities and life insurance. Make sure to ask the right questions about how long they’ve been in this business, what they’ve done to hone their craft, and if they’re new in the business, who else you’ll be working with to ensure that you’re working with a qualified team. Being prepared with questions can help you make an intelligent and informed decision when looking to hire a financial professional.

DISPATCHES Securities rating lawsuit headed to Indiana courts - Standard & Poor’s suffered a defeat last week in litigation accusing it of inflating credit ratings prior to the 2008 financial crisis, as a federal judge ruled that lawsuits by 16 U.S. states – including Indiana – and Washington, D.C., belong in state courts, not federal court. The states accused S&P of fraudulently inflating ratings on structured finance securities to win more business from issuers, while representing that its ratings were objective and not tainted by conflicts of interest. Many of the challenged ratings were for collateralized debt obligations and other mortgagebacked securities whose value plunged during the nation’s housing and credit crises. Most of the lawsuits were filed in February 2013, when the U.S. Department of Justice filed its own $5 billion lawsuit against S&P in a California federal court where it is still pending.

Value funds are beating growth-stock funds - If history is a guide, 2014 could be the year of the value fund. Valuestock funds have beaten the returns of their growth-stock rivals so far this year, powered by a sharp fall in some growth stocks in March and April. While growth funds recovered some of their March and April losses in May, investors’ renewed focus on valuation has persisted, market watchers say. Strategists say such dramatic changes in investor sentiment and market leadership often last a year or more.

Adalaj Stepwell near Ahmedabad (Photo by Don Knebel)
India’s ‘stepwells’ underground Commentary by Don Knebel Visitors to India are accustomed to looking up for the achievements of Indian architects. But uniquely Indian structures Travel called “stepwells” lie below the surface and are as fascinating as tombs and temples. One of the most famous also comes with a classic Indian love story. Weather on the Indian subcontinent is characterized by periods of intense rain followed by long periods of drought. Because the soil is usually not suitable for reservoirs, Indians in the fifth century began building structures with hollow stone shafts extending up to 50 feet below the surface. Steps led from the surface to the shaft’s bottom, with periodic landings allowing people to congregate on various levels. When the rains came, the structure filled with water and people drew water and bathed near the top. As water was consumed, people descended the steps until they reached the water level. Because Hindus believe waters create a boundary between earth and heaven, representations of gods and other religious symbols on the landings enabled people to engage in underground religious ceremonies surrounded by water. The Adalaj stepwell near Ahmedabad, Gujarat,
is one of the most famous, both for its design and the story of its origins. According to Sanskrit writings on a marble slab near the bottom, the Adalaj stepwell was begun by a Hindu king named Veer Singh who was killed in battle by a Muslim leader named Mohammed Begda. Begda took over the kingdom and pined for the king’s widow, the beautiful Roopba. Roopba promised Begda she would marry him but only if he first completed her husband’s stepwell. Begda completed the project in 1499, with an octagonal shaft lavishly covered with both Hindu and Islamic images extending five stories below the surface. With Roopba’s goal of honoring her husband accomplished, she then jumped to her death in the shaft. India’s stepwells were abandoned when the English declared them unsanitary, but many have been restored. The next time you get to India, look down after you have seen the Taj Mahal and the famous temples. Not all stepwells come with a legendary story, but all reflect the ingenuity of Indian architects.

Coconut’s super powers affect pets, like humans Commentary by John Mikesell
Over the past few years, coconut has skyrocketed in popularity for human and, now, pet consumption. “Coconut is one of the few foods that can be classified as a ‘super food,’” Chanda D. Leary-Coutu, senior manager of marketing communications at WellPet, said. What is a super food? Though it isn’t a regulated term, foods that are nutrient-dense and have a positive impact on overall wellness are labeled as a super food. As an ingredient in pet food and treats, coconut is used in dozens of ways, from its rawest form to an added element within a complex formula. It frequently appears as coconut oil or coconut flour in many formulations. One popular coconut product is virgin coconut oil. Coconut is extremely beneficial for pets because it is one of the richest natural sources of medium chain triglycerides. The most abundant medium-chain fatty acid found in coconut oil is lauric acid, which is considered
responsible for many of coconut oil’s health benefits. Coconut oil is about 50 percent lauric acid, and the only other abundant source found in nature is in human breast milk. Be sure to check with your local pet supply store for sources of coconut for your best friend. Karma and I would like to warn everyone it is summer, do not leave your dog in the car, or your child. It just takes a few minutes for the car to become unbearably hot, even with the windows cracked. Just don’t do it. If I see a dog or child in a hot car and I can’t find the owner, I will most likely break your window, so watch out.

I am not pointing fingers but could you be guilty of any of these crimes against the decorating world? decorating Do you have “stuff” tucked everywhere? The eye needs an opportunity to rest when it enters a room so a space that is packed with accessories and photos – just for the sake of filling the space – looks cluttered. To avoid the disharmony of too much stuff, identify things that really matter to you. Now, remove all of the things that you can live without and arrange only the items of importance. Have you ever painted without a plan? When a color is selected arbitrarily from a color deck, opportunity with fabrics and furniture goes out the window. When redecorating, there will probably be only a handful of fabrics that take your breath away. If you have pre-selected wall colors, you have probably eliminated every one of the fabrics that you would have loved. Anything you choose after the fact will most likely be a compromise. “Neutral” does not help as the colors that a typically considered neutral will do just as much to squelch your perfect room design as a strong color would Do you have too many focal points? If you have several strong focal points in a room, the eye will be uncomfortable deciding where to look. Typically a fireplace, a piece of art, or a window serves as a primary focal. Secondary would be strong colors on pillows or a chair or perhaps a colorful rug. The Primary and secondary focal points should work in unison to draw the eye gently around the room. Do you buy cheap? This does not mean that you need to purchase couture in everything that enters your home but it does mean that a cheap pillow from a discount store will look like a cheap pillow from a discount store. The adage “You get what you pay for” holds just as true in decorating as it does in the rest of life. Since it is a rare bird that does not have budgetary constraints, the best advice I can give is to do less but do it well.
Do you possess too large or too small furnishings? When furniture is too large or there are too many pieces, the room looks crowded and uncomfortable. When it is too small, it looks as if Alice in Wonderland will enter the room at any moment and declare that the room has shrunk. Scale and proportion are essential and are virtually impossible to gauge when considering furniture in a big box store with 30-foot ceilings. Do you try to incorporate furnishings and fabrics with different moods? Every piece of furniture and every single fabric have a mood. It might also be called a style. A playful cotton patterned fabric will look silly and “off” if used in conjunction with a sophisticated silk … even if the colors match. Conversely, don’t match everything! If a store offers a bedroom “suite” complete with bed, night stands, dresser and chest, resist the urge to take the easy way out by purchasing the entire set. These are just options! Carefully blending furnishings create the most interest in interior design. It is never too late to rehabilitate. If you are guilty of any of these crimes, remember this list when it is time to replace and redecorate. Sometimes your mistakes can be salvaged but sometimes it is better to confess and move forward with fixing your decorating malfeasance!

Covered porch gives family its backyard back, adds visual interest Commentary by Larry Greene
before & after
ORIGINAL BACKYARD: This home, located in the Centennial subdivision in Westfield, was built in 2009. Despite the blueprint for original concrete patio improvement being large enough to accommodate an outdoor dining set and grill, the hot summers made it difficult for the homeowners to enjoy outdoor activities. Adding shade, functionality and unique design elements were the main goals of the project. COVERED VS SCREENED-IN-PORCH: At the beginning of the design phase, the homeowners were faced with the decision to choose between a covered or screened-in-porch. “With a large family, we needed our outdoor space to be unique, open and functional. We knew having an enclosed porch would not work. We ended up choosing an open porch so the kids and dogs can freely move in and out of the house without being trapped by screened-in walls and doors.” DESIGN DETAILS: A brushed concrete patio slab was installed complete with a rounded step for the patio door and a dedicated 3’x6’ area for the grill. Decorative 6”x6” cedar posts were installed around the perimeter of the concrete patio to support the new porch roof. Matching shingles and gutters were installed. UPGRADED FINISHES: To give the homeowners their requested unique touches, a decorative
half wall was added next to the grilling pad including a granite wall cap. All supporting posts and new decorative trim were painted to match the home’s existing trim color. To complete the final look, white base trim and cedar corbels were added to each supporting post. Additional upgrades included a painted bead board ceiling and an extended mount ceiling fan.

RESULT: In the end, the homeowners were thrilled with how the covered porch also adds visual interest to the exterior of the home. “The best part of the whole addition is finally having a shaded area that our entire family can enjoy during the warmer months.”
