Two subjects arrested for alleged catalytic convertor thefts – On Tuesday, Carmel police officers were conducting surveillance on Honda Elements parked in the area of 11611 N. Meridian St. Prior to this surveillance, there had been approximately 12 thefts of catalytic converters; 11 of which had been from Honda Elements. Most of these thefts occurred along the Meridian Street corridor. At approximately 10:20 a.m. officers observed a red 2000 Buick LeSabre traveling northbound on Pennsylvania Avenue that turned into the parking lot of 11611 N. Meridian St. The Buick LeSabre appeared to be the same suspect vehicle identified in a recent catalytic converter theft at the Carmel High School Stadium lot. The two occupants exited the vehicle and were acting suspicious, according to police. Officers approached the subjects and began an investigation. Detectives from the Carmel and Fishers Police Departments arrived and assisted in the investigation. The two suspects admitted to several thefts of catalytic converters from Carmel and Fishers. Robert J. Luedtke, 31, of Noblesville, and Ashley J. Bell, 23, of Sheridan, were transported to the Hamilton County Jail and booked on the following charges: possession of a controlled substance, possession of a narcotic drug, possession of a syringe, theft.

Happenings Brainard named CarmelFest King of Glory dedicates ‘front porch’ Parade grand marshal COMMUNITY

By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com

editorial@youarecurrent.com Mayor Jim Brainard will be the grand marshal leading the 2012 “St.Vincent Health Fourth of July Parade” at CarmelFest. This year’s parade theme is “Carmel - Celebrating 175 Years,” in honor of the city’s 175th anniversary. According to Parade Chairperson Peggy Powell, “Once this year’s theme Brainard was chosen, we knew the best choice for grand marshal would be Mayor Brainard. His leadership has guided our community and helped us grow.” Brainard is Carmel’s first five-term mayor. Under his tenure, the population of Carmel has grown from 25,000 to nearly 80,000; park land, green space and trails have increased from 40 acres to more than 800, including the Monon Trail and Central Park; and the city has seen the creation of City Center, Carmel’s new downtown and the Arts & Design District. “I am honored to be the grand marshal in this year’s CarmelFest Parade,” said Brainard. “There is no better time for the community to come together to celebrate our nation’s freedom and Carmel’s 175th anniversary than CarmelFest. This event has been the city of Carmel’s annual Fourth of July tradition since 1987, and we are proud of the popularity and success that it’s gained each and every year and welcome the opportunity it provides to showcase our community.” This year’s parade steps off July 4 at 10:30 a.m. starting at AAA Way and Carmel Drive, and ends at Carmel High School. More than 100 entries are expected to take part in the parade, including marching bands, clowns, a salute to the military, dancers, color guards and entertaining floats. There are also plans in the works for F-16 Fighter Jets to fly over Carmel, signaling the start of the parade. For more information about CarmelFest and the parade, please look for Current in Carmel’s special CarmelFest section at the end of this month.

Joggers, cyclists and dog walkers traveling along 106th Street will find a new resting spot near Keystone Parkway, courtesy of King of Glory Worship and Ministry Center. The “front porch,” created using funds the church obtained from sale of land to the city of Carmel during the construction of roundabout improvements at the intersection of 106th Street and Keystone Parkway, was dedicated to the public June 3 at a service attended by church members and Mayor Jim Brainard. “Our congregation decided to reinvest into the community by creating a ‘front porch’ area,” said Pastor Paul Swartz. In his remarks at the dedication, Swartz recalled the history of the porch. “As an architectural concept, the porch has existed since prehistoric times and has influenced not only the construction of the temple and church buildings but household dwellings as well,” he said. “As history unfolded, and the Middle Ages arrived, the porch came to represent a cathedral’s vestibule where worshippers could gather to socialize before and after the service.” King of Glory’s front porch was designed to be a public amenity. It features several benches, a water fountain and a swing.

Swartz Part of King of Glory’s mission is to be a “lively and engaging front porch community,” Swartz said, which is why the congregation felt the project was a good investment. “We know that a vision is more than just a statement on paper,” he said. “It has to exist in the hearts and minds of people.” King of Glory’s “front porch” is now open to passersby at 2201 E. 106th St. The church will hold a Sunday morning worship service outside on the porch through fall, weather permitting.

The St.Vincent Medical Weight Loss Program Surgery isn’t always the best option for everyone. That’s why at the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence we provide an alternative method for significant weight loss. Our medical weight loss program is a multidisciplinary weight management program within the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence coordinated by Adrienne Gomez, MD, one of the Center’s bariatricians. As a part of this program, Dr. Gomez is joined by a registered dietitian, fitness professional and psychologist to provide instruction and counseling that can lead to sustained weight loss. The program consists of 20 individual sessions over seven months. And all patients receive lab work and feedback, metabolic testing and a personalized diet and exercise plan. During the second half of the program, patients have the opportunity to choose which interventionist (dietitian, exercise or psychology) they would like to see for the remainder of their visits. For more information about the St.Vincent Medical Weight Loss Program, call 317-582-8030.

Ardalan

Now (re)opened: Soori Gallery By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com The doors of Soori Gallery have opened once more in Carmel’s Arts and Design District, this time at 33 E. Main St. After finding she wasn’t using much of the space at her previous three-floor location at 258 W. Main St., gallery owner Dr. Soori Ardalan decided to move her business from the spot it’s occupied for four years. Prior to its move to the Arts and Design District, Soori Gallery was located in Zionsville. A former anesthesiologist, Ardalan decided to pursue her second passion, art, after leaving the medical field. “When I slowed down in anesthesia, I decided to open an art gallery,” she said. “I was an art collector originally, so I decided to share it

with everyone else.” Soori Gallery specializes in sculpture, featuring pieces from Angelo Basso, Martin Eichinger, Jerry Joslin and Misha Frid, among others. The gallery recently began displaying pieces done in Lalique crystal and Boehm porcelain. Ardalan said she chose sculpture to deal in because the medium has always had a calming effect on her. “One time, a surgeon who I used to do anesthesia for came to my gallery and asked what I was doing there,” she said. “I said I was looking for a medium that’s nice to look at, that’s relaxing and that makes you feel good.” Soory Gallery is now open at 33 E. Main St. in Carmel. For more information, visit www. soorigallery.com or call 843-2787.

Indiana Ballet Conservatory celebrates new Carmel studios editorial@youarecurrent.com The Indiana Ballet Conservatory (IBC) recently celebrated the Grand Opening of its new studios at 849 West Carmel Drive. IBC welcomed the surrounding Hamilton county and Indianapolis community to mark the completion of its four new ballet studios complete with professional sprung flooring, new office space and dancer changing rooms, and common areas for both parents and students. Guests of the Grand Opening witnessed a brief performance by IBC students, all of whom recently returned from representing IBC and Indiana at the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) NYC Finals in April, the largest international student ballet competition in the world, where IBC received the distinction of placing in the Top 12 for its ensemble, "Amelie," out of 115 other ensembles from America, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, Japan, Korea, South Africa, Spain, and Switzerland (www.yagp.org). IBC’s pre-professional training program was recognized as the YAGP regional Outstanding School in 2011, and its teachers are also the recipients of the coveted Outstanding Teacher and Outstanding Choreographer awards.

Awards

Saluting Presidential Scholars Commentary by Jeff Worrell

The press release from the United States Department of Education lists the name and hometown for each of the 141 Presidential Scholars for the class of 2012. Since 1964, two high school seniors, one young man and one young woman, from each state plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico have been chosen by the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars. The idea is to recognize future leaders of our country, and no one on the planet has the ability to do that any better than our President. This is a very big deal. Naturally I scanned the list, heading straight to Indiana, and to my amazement, both Indiana Presidential Scholars are from Carmel. Rebecca S. Chen of Park Tudor and Shea S. Jendrusina of Carmel High School were boldly listed as Carmel, IN and Carmel, IN. Rebecca and Shea were selected as honored scholars based on their academic success, artistic excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership and demonstrated commitment to high ideals. Of the three million students

expected to graduate from high school this year, more than 3,300 candidates qualified for the 2012 awards determined by outstanding performance on the College Board SAT and ACT exams, and through nominations made by Chief State School Officers or the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts nationwide YoungArts competition. The award ceremony will be held in Washington, D.C., on June 16, when Rebecca and Shea will receive a Presidential Scholar medallion. The Scholars will also be able to invite the teacher they view as most inspiring and challenging to them during their educational career. Shea chose Janice Mitchener, also of Carmel. Rebecca named Ryan Ritz of Indianapolis as the teacher offering the most inspiration. You and I both know good things are coming from the youth of our community.

The Hamilton County Leadership Academy graduates its 500th student: Carmel resident Marcilynn Keys

By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com The Hamilton County Leadership Academy hit a milestone Thursday, graduating its 500th student and 21st class. Marcilynn Keys, a community volunteer from Carmel, earned the distinction of being the nonprofit’s 500th graduate. She was presented with a certificate by Ellen Rosenthal, president and CEO of Conner Prairie. Keys has been an active member of the Conner Prairie Alliance, a women’s service group dedicated to supporting the mission of the interactive history museum. “It’s a testament to the program that it’s been around for 21 years and we now have more than 500 graduates who have gone on to serve the community in a variety of ways,” said Jill Doyle, executive director of the HCLA. The recognition of the 500th graduate came during a ceremony for the graduation of the HCLA Class of 2012, the members of which ranged from assistants to U.S. senators to executive directors of nonprofits themselves.

Learning to lead

The HCLA was founded in 1991 to “educate and inspire leadership to create a positive impact in our community.” To do that, the 10-month program introduces students to the inner workings of government and nonprofits. Students are also asked to develop a service project, which they work on throughout the academy. This year’s service projects included a community garden in Noblesville, support for Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore Project and assistance for the Carmel-based Midwest Academy in its search for a potential new home. The academy, which serves 95 students who’ve “fallen in between the cracks because they learn differently,” is currently located at 801 Congressional Blvd., in Carmel. “Midwest Academy thinks they may need to be out of their current space by the end of the year … and even if they don’t, they don’t have the space to take on any new students,” said Kevin Kane, a member of the HCLA group working with the academy and former managing editor of Current in Carmel. “The staff felt they couldn’t devote the time needed to look for a new location without a negative impact on the students.”

HCLA Class of 2012 Heidi Abel Manager, Emergency Services St.Vincent Northeast

Midwest Academy Group So, Kane and the rest of his HCLA group, composed of Heidi Abel, Lisa Dick, Patricia Gamble-Moore, Joanne Hogle, Darlene Lorenz and Kanwal Sidhu, decided to undertake the search on behalf of the school. “What we did was offer to do the legwork for them to begin looking at possible locations, based on their needs and financial situation,” Kane said. “For the most part, these buildings aren’t listed, so we used our contacts and knowledge of the community to help them out.” The group’s final report consisted of five available locations it felt would be a good match for the school, and a number of others which they had ruled out to save the school time in its search process. “(HCLA) was a great experience,” said Joanne Hogle, a program advisor for the Community Assistance Program and member of the Midwest Academy group. “I didn’t realize how you would actually get to go in and see what was going on. The curriculum was just planned so well. Every month I would think it was the best class, until the next one. I highly recommend it.” Thursday’s graduation ceremony ended with a send-off from Mike Engledow, a principal at arcDesign and HCLA curriculum dean. “If this class is the future of leadership in Hamilton County,” Engledow said, “we’re in good hands.” The Hamilton County Leadership Academy is currently accepting applications for its 2013 class. Applications will be accepted until June 30, and can be found online at www. hcla.net.

Opinion

Super-size government It is our position that dictating what Americans eat and drink should not be within the realm of government. Apparently, the ongoing issues of education, unemployment, health care reform, homelessness and crime aren’t enough to keep lawmakers busy. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks super-size sugary sodas are putting the “big” in residents of The Big Apple and has introduced a resolution to ban them from being sold in certain restaurants and entertainment venues. Ironically, it was Bloomberg who campaigned to get an amendment passed in 2008 to super size his term in office. While the First Lady’s Healthy Food Initiative is positive in that it has reintroduced gardening as a hobby and as a low-cost source of healthy food, it has put the kibosh on super-size candy bars and served as the catalyst for federal regulations banning soda from being sold in schools during the lunch hour. A school in Utah was recently fined $15,000 for a violation. Unfortunately, schools have to use a lot of processed food because of regulations, budget and liability issues. If government can pave the way for old school lunch ladies to truly cook again, more power to them. Super-size government should super size the real priorities in this country, super quick.

Keystone/96th revision: Our region needs it

Misplaced loyalty

Commentary by Terry Anker

Why does it seem that most elected officials don’t retire naturally? They run until they are forced resentfully from office. Some voters accuse the politicians of an egomaniacal power-grab while others believe these mature statesmen have the most to offer and must continue to serve. Whatever the perspective, most of us count ourselves as loyal. We love our friends, our team mascot and our national flag. In fact, studies show that once we settle on a beer brand we almost never change it. Even dogs are lauded for their faithfulness. Could politicians continue to campaign out of some sense of misplaced loyalty to those in their employ? When a fresh-faced member of our U.S. Congress goes to D.C., they are first challenged with building a staff. In addition to hiring from the pool of professional bureaucrats lurking in the shadow of Capital Hill, they bring with them a handful of devoted kids from their district back home. Together they march to Washington, ready to make a

difference. Then life happens. In the subsequent years, these “kids” grow up living in the beltway. They meet and marry in Virginia (not their home states). Their children are born residents of the Imperial City, not the small town from which their roots sprang. By the time a U.S. Senator, for example, has served a few terms, her close-knit staff is no longer representative of the folks, well, represented. Considering reelection, are those most proximate to the senator entirely selfinterested? They say: you have more to do to serve our country. They mean: one more term and my kid will be out of school (“he is your Godson, senator”). They say: your state needs you. They imagine: what will I do without the job your office provides to me? Compared to personal interest, does the state always lose?

With all due respect to business owners in the Keystone Parkway/96th Street area, the recent news of the state’s decision to not pursue a roundabout now will have ramifications for our region. For drivers from Zionsville on the west to Fishers on the east, and multiple points in between, the intersection has proved nothing short of a traffic-management disaster. We know of several people that go out of their way to avoid that intersection and its miserable snarl of traffic. We do hear and understand the fears of merchants in that area; they justifiably worry about what yet another round of road construction would do to their businesses. In our opinion, a roundabout would pay dividends into the future for those that drive through or to that area and the businesses that would be reached with relative ease by comparison. The project still is on the books, but the two thoroughfares will be “war zones” once U.S. 31 shuts down for its hyperfix. It’s easy to write what should happen, because our business is not situated in that area of the marketplace. That stated, we’d consider it a noble and defining act if Gov. Mitch Daniels and his team found a way to step up and let everyone have his or her cake and eat it, too. It can happen. More than that, it needs to happen. We can’t have that intersection be a wrench in the motoring-andcommerce works any longer than it has to be. ••• Mark your calendars and buy tickets to this: The final performance of the Great American Songbook Vocal Academy and Competition is at 7 p.m. Friday at The Center for the Performing Arts.

Summer family blockbusters Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Summer is here, my friends, and for me, it means two things: multiple opportunities for buttered corn at the movies and freedom from the daily grind of homework, bus stops and brown bag lunches. But these perks come with a cost – namely weight gain and delinquent children. So taking my cue from Rotten Tomatoes, here are some certified “fresh picks” for surviving the longest of the long school vacations: Amish Day: Horror. At least for my kids. The idea of surviving even one afternoon without their beloved Xbox or Kindle or iPod is enough to throw them into hysterics. But my husband and I both agree that they will not waste the beautiful weather hunkered down in the basement sniping Nazi zombies. So one day per week shall henceforth be designated Amish Day. Bedtimes on Elm Street: Legal Thriller. John Grisham could learn a few things about courtroom drama from our offspring at bedtime. They argue, mediate, bribe and stall just like real lawyers. But setting and enforcing consistent bedtimes is a must if our children are to get the rest they need, so as justices, Doo and I bring the gavel down on their antics. We simply can’t handle the truth of too few Z’s. Fun After Reading: BBC Documentary. Important yet oh-so-boring, we are once again requiring our precious little angels to participate

in the library summer reading program. They’ll resist, right up until they discover there are actually good books out there. Revenge of the Chores, Part 2: Foreign. Our kids have household responsibilities throughout the school year, but for some reason they think June marks the beginning of some kind of chore sabbatical. So getting them to continue with laundry, dishes, lawn mowing and cat care is like watching a Spanish soap opera – over-thetop drama with unrelenting eye rolling and cleavage-clutching gasps. A chore chart will continue to dominate our Frigidaire, muchas gracias. The Family Wilson: Comedy/Drama. Last year we instituted a game night, but this year we’ve switched things up and are starting a weekly Wilson movie night. Each of us will get the chance to select a film that the whole family must watch. This could go one of two ways, hence the double genre label. Hopefully, we will have tons of fun critiquing each other’s picks, but as in all families, chances are high that someone’s feelings will get hurt. Let the games begin…. Peace out.

Sigh of relief

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Have you ever been caught pandiculating in a public place? My wife gets annoyed when she catches me doing it anywhere. She thought once we were married, I’d quit. But we’ve been married a long time and I haven’t been able to stop. Pandiculation, as I’m sure you already knew, is the act of yawning. We don’t know how long people have been yawning, but we do know how long people yawn for: on average, about six seconds. Your yawn may vary. Whatever the cause, I’ve always found it embarrassing to be talking to someone and suddenly start yawning. That’s when some loser says, “I’m not boring you, am I?� Here’s my response: “Not at all. People yawn when the pressure in their ears differs from the outside pressure, or from the partial collapse of the air sacs in their lungs, prompting the brain to make them yawn, thus getting more oxygen into the lungs.� “Okay, Dick, now you’re boring me.� My dog and cat always yawn when they see me. Your pets do the same thing to you, don’t they? Please tell me they do. And when I get undressed with my dog in the room, first he takes a look, then he yawns. I try not to take it personally. My wife doesn’t yawn very much, which I thought was pretty good evidence of what a

snappy conversationalist I am, but at times she does exhibit paralinguistic respiration – meaning she sighs audibly. Unlike most cinema reviewers who employ either the thumbs up or five-star criteria, Mary Ellen practices the sigh standard, exhibited most often when I drag her to a flick she really doesn’t want to see. For example: “Con Air� got six sighs while “The Avengers� earned eight sighs. And at the newly released “The Three Stooges,� she sighed so many times the man sitting next to us thought she was in cardiac arrest and called 911. Unlike a sigh, a yawn is involuntary. Mary Ellen and I were at a wedding and I desperately tried to suppress a yawn so as not to appear rude or uninterested in the ceremony. My face got all twisted and scrunched, but I did manage to successfully incorporate the words “I do� into my pandiculation. Even the minister was impressed. I hope you think this topic was worth writing about. Personally, I don’t think it’s anything to sternutate at. You can look that one up. But here’s a hint: Gesundheit!

The Great American Songbook Vocal Competition brings young performers and professional talent to Carmel By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com This Friday, The Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative will host The Great American Songbook Final High School Vocal Competition. This annual event showcases high school talent from the Midwest and now a large portion of the country while giving students a week of professional-quality education with several award-winning celebrity performers. “We originally saw (the competition) as our chance to expose youth to this great music,” said Chris Lewis, The Great American Songbook Initiative’s Director of Education, “but now, it goes Lewis beyond simply achieving our initial mission. Now there is a huge educational component as well.” The first competition was held in 2009 and included five states across the Midwest. Selected students took part in an initial competition within their state. From there, finalists were determined and performed in the final, which

included a monetary prize to the winner and runners-up. Last year, the competition went on a brief hiatus while waiting for the completion of the Palladium. Coming back from this break, Lewis took the opportunity to increase the scope of the competition as well as enhance the educational component. “Originally if 100 students entered, only about 10 would experience the academy,” said Lewis. This year, the competition has been expanded to four different regions, two of which include New York and California. Through expanded online registration, the competition received nearly 200 applicants from across the country. Finalists were then chosen in several regional competitions, each featuring one day of master classes and workshops. Now, 40 students get to experience the Academy, which was one of the Initiative’s primary goals. The finalists are attending the complete academy experience all this week in Indianapolis. A wide array of classes and workshops are being taught by industry veterans and celebrity professionals such as Michael Feinstein, Sandy Patti and Sylvia McNair. While the students’

personal experience levels may vary, the aim of the academy is to help them become as great a performer and a professional as possible. “We have seen 18 year olds that are already accepted to a program coming in really polished and then 14-year-old freshmen that are also really strong, so it’ll be interesting,” said Lewis. The final performance will feature several musical numbers including the competition’s finalists and group numbers featuring many of the celebrity judges such as Michael Feinstein and Sandi Patti. “It’s less American Idol and more … something that I can’t really describe,” said Lewis. “It’s going to be an incredible show.”

The Great American Songbook Vocal Competition will be held this Friday at 7 p.m. at Palladium (1 Center Green, Carmel). Tickets are $25 to $50 general, $10 student and included in admission to Saturday’s Encore Celebration. Tickets are available online at thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

Heart disease: know the basics Commentary by Chintan Amin, MD, IU Health Physicians Internal Medicine

Affecting both men and women, “heart disease” refers to conditions that affect the function of the heart, such as coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. Coronary artery disease is a type of heart disease that begins when plaque builds up along the walls of arteries. This buildup narrows the arteries, restricting proper blood flow. If left unchecked, heart disease increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. Whether or not you have a family history of heart disease, it’s important to understand the risk factors for the condition, which include: • Smoking • Hypertension (high blood pressure) • Sedentary lifestyle • Obesity, especially excess fat in the central abdominal region • Elevated cholesterol • Diabetes mellitus (metabolic disorder resulting in elevated blood glucose) Practicing a healthy lifestyle, which includes good nutrition and exercise, is a good way to help prevent heart disease. Most people should engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. This helps control blood pressure and weight. Talk with your primary care doctor before beginning any exercise program. As for diet and nutrition, choosing the

right foods, such as fruits, vegetables and lean proteins, and avoiding excessive amounts of caffeine, sugar and salt also are good ways to prevent heart disease. Additionally, adults should have periodic preventive health exams and testing so that fasting cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as blood pressure, can be checked and treated, if necessary. While there is no one symptom that signals the onset of heart disease, there are a number of warning signs. Some of the most common include: • Chest pain or pressure • Unexplained pain in the back, chest, neck or arm • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing • Palpitations or “fluttering” in the chest • Indigestion, heartburn – and sometimes even nausea or loss of appetite Although these symptoms can indicate heart disease, they also may be related to many other conditions. Generally, I recommend contacting your doctor if you have new or unusual symptoms to ensure you are properly evaluated. If your doctor suspects heart disease, he or she will likely refer you for further testing.

Long-term care workshop Wednesday editorial@youarecurrent.com

AAA Insurance will host a long-term care workshop at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the AAA Hoosier Motor Club Carmel office, 1130 AAA Way. Participants will learn about risks and costs associated with long-term care as well as what programs such as Medicare and Medicaid actually cover. Attendees will also learn about the types of insurance available to them and how to determine whether or not they can afford to self-insure. Long-term care encompasses a variety of services and offerings to help meet an individual’s health and/or personal care needs over an extended period of time. The majority of long-term care actually involves non-skilled personal care assistance for daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating and in-home mobility. Wednesday’s event is free to AAA members age 40 and older, but seating is limited and advance reservations are required. To register, visit www.aaa.com/ longtermcare or call 923-1500, ext. 370.

Spice it up – Not only are herbs full of flavor, but they can also replace salt, fat and cholesterol in foods.

Health-conscious consumers are snatching up these items as they cut back on proteinrich red meat, prices increase and they become more concerned about their health. – abcnews.com Overkill – Loading up on SPF 100 for the kids?

Business

Using your big words Commentary by David Cain Business meetings are tough enough, but one sure way to turn off customers is using a lot of industry-specific jargon. Every industry has their own lexicon, including acronyms and shortcuts that only industry insiders understand. It’s a natural tendency for all of us to talk in terms we understand, even if we are discussing things with people outside of our industry circles. It’s the business equivalent of telling inside jokes that only someone who’s known you for years understands. It’s like telling secrets or talking in code. Even if you take the time to explain what your terms mean, often it is an afterthought or in response to your attendees’ inquiry. And, really, no one truly wants to learn your industry – they just want you to know it and explain it in a way that makes sense to them. In business meetings, just like any gathering, you’ll find your attendees will be more willing

Introducing The All-New 2013

to listen, believe and act on what you’re meeting about if you speak in a language that includes them. Even if you explain what your terms mean, you are better off avoiding industry-specific terms and talk in universal terms. Industry jargon will confuse your customer or client and, what’s worse, make them have to think – and thinking leads to indecision. Clean it up and leave the industry lexicon for the water cooler. Impress your prospects and clients by using simple terms and alternative descriptions and analogies for your industry language. What you’ll find is a greater understanding and an audience more willing to take action because they are included and feel just as smart and up-to-speed as you are.

Refocus your priorities Commentary by CJ McClanahan Go get a pen and a piece of paper. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Now, in the next 30 seconds I challenge you to make a list of the four most important things in your life. If you’re like most people, your list will look something like this: 1. Faith 2. Family 3. Friends 4. Health Next, tell me where you spend your time. If you’re honest, you’d probably admit that if you add up all the time you spend at church, the gym, with your friends and family it would equal less than a quarter of the total you spend at work. You know what’s worse? Compare the amount of time you spend on what’s really important in your life to the number of hours you spend each week watching TV and on Facebook. How did it get this way? I’m not a sociologist, but I’ve got a few ideas. The advancement of technology has created a society that demands to be entertained at every minute of the day. When is the last time you sat in your kitchen/living room/basement and you didn’t have the TV on or you weren’t on the Internet? If you’ve got kids, I’d be surprised if they can sit in the car for more than 30 seconds without playing a video game.

Need ideas and inspiration?

Visit choosesurroundings.com and experience our e-magazine for everything outdoors!

Unfortunately, rarely does this desire to be entertained correlate to what’s important in our lives. Next, I believe that that the pace at which our lives work has made us extremely impatient. In other words, rarely do we engage in an activity that will not produce an immediate result. This is why the average American will read less than one non-fiction book per year but can easily tell you the status of all of their friends (via Facebook) or the final three contestants on “American Idol.” It’s tough, but you can make subtle changes that will get you back to what’s really important. First, take a minute to imagine we are at your funeral and a good friend is giving your eulogy. What do you want them to say about you as a spouse or a parent? Were you a good friend? This exercise will help provide a little clarity to your daily life and this clarity will help tweak your behavior. Next, take time to plan activities that refocus you on what’s really important. Write down what’s important and then plan activities that support this list. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

The dangerous Gospel of Jesus Commentary by Bob Walters If one clearly hears the facts of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, one’s heart will be changed by it – one will love it and want more, hate it and want it to go away or develop a conflicting mix of passion, awakening, curiosity, fear, courage, thankfulness, incredulousness, revulsion, anger, confusion and maybe faith … or maybe not. But there’s one thing guaranteed: ambivalence isn’t an option. So says Dallas preacher Matt Chandler in his recently published “The Explicit Gospel,” a book I’m very much enjoying. Chandler isn’t rewriting the Gospel message; he’s encouraging Christians to crave, pursue and know – and for preachers to preach – what the Gospels actually say and reveal about God, eternity and our relationship with the divine. Chandler wisely counsels us to de-emphasize what we want the Gospels to say or hear spurious preachers say. Instead we must focus on and exhort the totality of all that the Gospels really describe about our relationship with God. That can be a dangerous thing, Chandler notes, because upon hearing the Gospel a person’s soul will either soften or harden toward God’s grace. Softening leads toward heaven and the danger of being rejected by the world; hardening leads to-

• Homemade Frozen Custard • Fresh-Baked Cupcakes • Gourmet Salads • Variety of Sandwiches

ward hell, and hell is as dangerous as it gets. But hell isn’t the point. Preaching the truth of Christ is the point, and that’s Chandler’s point. He presents a thorough, biblically buttressed dialectic of how the Bible itself supports the truth of the Gospel if only we read it entirely and preachers preach it explicitly. Chandler cites John chapter six as an example. Everyone loves the story of Jesus miraculously feeding the 5,000 (verses 1-15). But read on (verses 25-71) and discover that Jesus says He is the bread of life, and that for us to be truly fed God requires us “to believe in the One he has sent.” And Jesus really, really means it. You can’t preach the miraculous receiving if you won’t preach the serious believing. That is called “subtracting” from the Gospels and, sorry – half a loaf won’t get anyone into heaven. Our hearts and minds must be strong enough to hear the truth of the explicit Gospel (e.g. John 3:16-17; 14:6-7). Chandler is telling us to be sure to hear it all. Bob Walters (rlwcom@aol.com) appreciates that while our only true peace is in Christ, His Gospel truth can be horrifying to a hardened heart. Pray boldly to hear.

When the honeymoon is over Commentary by Tracy Line

I thought I’d heard it all. But I was wrong. Last week, Dutch entrepreneur Jim Halfens announced he is opening a new line of hotels. His hotels aren’t the type of place you want to visit twice. In fact, you might hope to never go there at all. Halfens’ hotels offer a unique service: the ability to arrive married and leave single. At the Divorce Hotel, unhappy couples check in (separate accommodations of course) and relax in five-star quality suites while utilizing the services of an on-site divorce team to terminate their marriage. Guests can check in on Friday, have the divorce drawn up Saturday and leave Sunday with papers in hand. There are currently six boutique hotels throughout the Netherlands. Divorce packages cost between $3,500 and $10,000, depending on the complexity of the couple’s assets and whether or not there is a child custody issue. Next up is to bring the Divorce Hotel concept to the U.S. With American divorces taking anywhere from months to years, Halfens believes his hotels offer a quick and positive way to end a union. While eager to provide a service, the hotel staff has no desire to mediate a messy divorce. Instead they focus on couples looking to make a clean, amicable split. No life change is all roses though, so the hotel also has psychologists available for those needing help in adjust-

ing to the single life. According to the New York Times, 16 of the 17 married couples that have checked into the hotel have successfully left with divorce papers. One guest even had a champagne toast with his ex-wife after it was all said and done. Can you guess what’s next? A reality show about the hotel and its guests. Ugh. Talks with two U.S. production companies are already taking place. Tracy Line is a travel writer and agent, and the owner of Noblesville Travel. Contact her at Tracy@ noblesvilletravel.com.

Windows 8: Going 'smarter' Commentary by Ken Colburn I’m in the market for a new computer; when will Windows 8 be out and is it worth getting? - Stanley  Windows 8 is Microsoft’s ambitious attempt to create a new operating system that would allow users to work the same on a PC as they would on a tablet or smartphone. Windows 8 will use a tiled dashboard as its home screen (called Metro) that looks very much like the touch interface on current Windows Phone 7 smartphones. Underneath this dashboard is the traditional Desktop minus some old familiar items like the Start button, which is disorienting at first. I’m predicting that a large number of users will scream, “I want my old Windows back” when they first begin navigating this semi-familiar portion of the operating system, but over time, the new interface will allow you quicker access to information and programs that you want. As of this writing, Windows 8 is still in a test version (currently called Release Preview) and should only be installed by IT pros and software developers that have a spare computer that can be sacrificed for testing purposes. Test or "beta" versions should never be installed on a computer that has any important data or on the only machine you own, as you are almost guaranteed to have problems. Microsoft hasn’t announced a release date as of yet, but the latest information we have suggests that computer manufacturers may start getting their "Release To Manufacturing" version so they can start their build process in late July. If the process follows previous releases, we might start seeing computers pre-installed with

Windows 8 hit the market starting in October. Even then, unless you are an ‘early adopter’ that doesn’t mind dealing with being the first to discover a new problem, I’d suggest holding off on jumping into the Windows 8 pool. Letting a few million hardcore techies play with the public release version before you take on the challenge will generally save you a lot of grief. Lots of Web sites and YouTube videos (including ours) will publish all the do’s and don’ts for migrating to Windows 8 if you give the tech community some time to compile the intelligence. Microsoft always offers special upgrades for those buying a computer with an older operating system close to the launch of a new OS.  The Windows 8 upgrade will be available for those buying a new Windows 7 computer between June 2 and Jan. 31, 2013 and allows an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $14.99 (via a download). If you plan on upgrading an existing computer to Windows 8, you will definitely want to wait for a while after it’s released, as this scenario is traditionally the one that has the highest likelihood of issues. If you want to get a better understanding of how Windows 8 will work, you can view a handful of videos that Microsoft has posted here: http://goo.gl/tUFbw

Composting 101

Commentary by Chris Arney

Compost is the number one soil amendment to add to the garden, potted plants and lawn. Composting is relatively easy, and Mother Nature does all the work! Basically, composting is the decomposition of plant material. Properly composted material will be weed- and disease-free as well as full of nutrients and organic matter. Compost can loosen soil, increase water-holding capacity and add fertility. The recipe for compost starts with two parts “green” material – grass clippings, weeds, spent flowers, manure, kitchen scraps, etc. Green materials provide a nitrogen source to feed the microbes that “digest” the pile. Add one part “brown” material – leaves, straw, pine needles, etc. Top off with a few shovels of soil, to inoculate the pile with microbes and bacteria. Mix in a little water to moisten, and pile up. The compost should be kept moist, as a dry pile will compost very slowly. The finer you can grind or chop debris for the pile, the faster

it will break down. As the microbe population grows and the feeding frenzy begins, the pile will begin to heat up. Some piles can heat up to 130 degrees. This heat will kill off weed seeds and help to sterilize the debris. After the pile cools down, thoroughly mix the pile with a pitchfork, add some water and let it heat up again. Repeat this process until all material has turned into rich compost. The best piles are three to four feet tall. Having this amount will help the pile heat up and compost faster. A simple pile will work, however you can use barrels, trashcans or store-bought compost bins. An online search will yield hundreds of different types of composting systems. There are many recipes for compost – choose the one that works for you and enjoy! Chris Arney is the director of landscaping operations at EA Outdoor Services.

Gardening is for the birds Commentary by Holly Lindzy

Each morning for the past month I’ve watched cardinals, robins and catbirds devouring my serviceberry fruit, less than 10 feet from my seat on the porch. It’s been my favorite part of the day. Not only that, but I’ve also noted the hummingbirds back at my fuchsia, catmint and agastache. What fun! And there are several bird species that gather and flit in the burning bush hedge across the street. We see the same families from day to day and how they’ve grown. I love it! I think that’s why I’ve decided gardening is for the birds . . . sincerely. Used to be, I’d spend my mornings filling and refilling birdfeeders. I enjoyed putting out quality seed like safflower and thistle and watching the birds flock and riot over who’d be next. Before long, all the ruckus over thieving squirrels and empty feeders had me worn out. Not to mention somewhat broke. That’s why in recent years, I’ve taken to planting things around my yard specifically for the Shapes – Creating an outdoor space, but find that it seems to be disconnected from the rest of your home? Try using architectural connectors like overhangs, colonnades and pergolas. - goodhousekeeping.com

birds to feast on so I can observe them in a more natural environment – and it’s much more economical. For example, my Black-eyed Susan is in brilliant bloom right now, but by the end of the summer it will be mobbed by finches reaping the seed. And its bee balm companion? The hummingbirds will be stopping at it until the end of summer. Come fall, I hope to find a bird’s nest in my Rose of Sharon. If I’m lucky, it’s a hummingbird’s. Gardening is so much more than just flowers. As much as I loved shopping at the Feed and Seed, I find it more rewarding to see the birds enjoy things naturally, as it was meant to be – squirrels and all. And, it gives me an excuse to buy more plants. Holly Lindzy is an Indiana accredited horticulturalist and advanced master gardener residing in Noblesville.

UBER BOUTIQUE

New master bath gives spa-like experience Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BATHROOM: This home, located in the Carolina Commons subdivision on the east side of Carmel, was built in 1985, and the current homeowners purchased the home in 2000. According to the owners, “The bathroom was a typical ’80s style, with a large garden tub, dark wood, bulkheads, low sinks and a small shower. We were thinking about moving out of the neighborhood, but we like the area and our lot, so we decided to invest in the house. We started with a kitchen remodel and then moved to the master bath.” SPA-LIKE DESIGN: The owners worked with the design team to create the vision they wanted. “We travel to nice hotels and spas quite a bit, and brought ideas from those places into our bathroom design. We spend a lot of time in the master bath, and we wanted a spa feel in our home.” MASTER BATH DETAILS: The project included a new walk-in shower with pebble mosaic tiled floor, natural Gobi slate tile walls, LED lighting and Brizo Virage plumbing fixtures in oil-rubbed bronze. A new Kohler Archer dropin soaking tub includes a slate surround and matching cabinet panels on the front. The cabinetry is antique-white custom maple cabinetry with a brown glaze and center tower cabinet. The owner commented, “My favorite part of the new bathroom is the large shower, with multiple 32 | June 12, 2012

“Our customers love Linnea’s Lights because of their unique scents and how nicely they burn. We are also proud to say they are made locally.” – ANNE BRANHAM jets, the pebble floor, the soft LED lighting and the slate walls with built-in niches. At first I was a little worried about how the pebbles would feel, but they feel like a little massage on your feet. The heated floors are nice, too. We enjoy having plenty of room in the shower.” A SPACE JUST FOR YOU: The homeowners noted, “When you spend time and money on a kitchen remodel, you are doing it for yourself and for others, like family and friends. When you do a master bath remodel, you are doing it for yourself only. It is nice to have a space that is all your own.” Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a full-service design/build firm serving Hamilton County.
