New Beazer subdivision could threaten 1830s-era home By Adam Aasen • Beazer Homes Indiana is proposing a new subdivision in northeast Carmel where 80 percent of the homeowners development must be 55 years old or older. But some Carmel history lovers are wondering why a historic home built in 1834 isn’t preserved in the plans. THE SUBDIVISION The 59-acre parcel is northeast of the 136th Street and Keystone Parkway roundabout and would be called The Reserve at Cool Creek. Currently, 164 homes are planned, with 61 villa homes, each with two dwellings per villa similar to a duplex, and 42 ranch homes. The density is 2.9 homes per acre, only slightly higher than the current zoning of 2.76 homes per acre. Nearly 40 percent of the site is dedicated to common areas. Access would be through a main entrance off 136th Street. Entrances have been proposed at Smokey Ridge Trail, Smokey Ridge Lane, Matt Street and Millgate/Laura Vista. City councilor Sue Finkam said with an agerestricted community that generates a belowaverage number of trips and five access points, traffic impact into adjacent neighborhoods will be minimal. City councilor Bruce Kimball said the project should head to the Carmel Plan Commission soon. He expects some remonstrance because the homes might cost less than $300,000, and nearby residents worry it could impact their property values. “We really have a need for affordable housing in Carmel, especially for empty nester homes,” he said. THE HISTORIC HOME The home at 2724 E. 136th St. is built on land originally deeded to William Wilkinson in 1822. He died before building on the land, and Silas Moffitt, a member of one of Carmel’s first families, ended up owning the land. His son, David, built a two-story log cabin in 1834. After getting married, he added a brick Georgianstyle addition in 1853. The land and structures changed ownership and were passed down through generations. The last person to live

in the house, Hank Hull, died in 2014. The land went to his nephews and nieces in Colorado. The plans submitted to the Plan Commission make no mention of preserving the Hull House. “The house is not listed on the city’s list of historic homes, so when the plans were designed, it was with the understanding that the current home would be torn down,” Finkam said. “Since that time, just prior to the filing, the Carmel Historical Preservation Commission reached out to the developer about preserving the home.” Beazer Homes did not respond to a request for comment. Emily Ehrgott, executive director of the Carmel Clay Historical Society, said the house is worth saving because it’s one of the few Carmel homes left from the 1800s. Ehrgott bought and restored the historic McShane House on Range Line Road, where she lives with her husband and kids. “I have not been inside, but it looked in much better condition than (my) house was,” Ehrgott said. Kimball said he’s unsure of the condition, but he said if it’s possible he’d support preserving the historic home. “We will have to look at it, but it could work as a clubhouse,” he said. Finkam said she’s not sure what will happen to the home. “I had a chance to tour the home,” she said. “It’s in a beautiful location, but the house itself appears to be in terrible condition. I don’t know anything about structural engineering, but I wonder if it can be salvaged.”

Council approves $220K for Christkindl market

By Ann Marie Shambaugh

The Carmel City Council held a special meeting June 9 to approve spending $220,000 from Mayor Jim city news Brainard’s arts grants fund to help launch a Christkindl market at the Center for the Performing Arts Centre Green. The unanimous vote for the only item on the agenda came after Carmel Clerk-Treasurer Christine Pauley requested additional time for her office to review the claim, which she received May 23. She Pauley said most claims are itemized, while this one only requested the funds to help start up the market. “Knowing what I know about that fund code account, it requires a variety of documentation to be provided when the money is awarded by the mayor’s office, so I wanted to have an understanding of how this occurred after the awarded period of time had expired,” Pauley said. “Little did I know there was roughly around $220,000 left in that account that had for whatever reason not been spent by the mayor in giving out awards and grants in December 2016 for the year 2017.” Pauley questioned why this newly formed nonprofit didn’t have to follow the same rules as others that receive arts grant funds, such as going through an application process and providing financial documentation, among other things. City Council President Sue Finkam said the council voted to approve the claim after city attorneys reviewed it and said it was ready to be processed. “I have no problem with her asking questions about the nonprofit or the project, but it has nothing to do with certifying the claims for approval,” Finkam said. She also said that the mayor’s office reviews requests for arts grant funds, not

the city council. Dan McFeely, a spokesperson for the City of Carmel who also is president of the Christkindl market’s nonprofit board of directors, said he could not provide a breakdown of how the $220,000 would be spent because “the budget has not been completed or reviewed by the board.” An agreement for professional services signed May 2 to hire former Lake City Bank employee Maria Murphy as the Christkindl market master and CEO states that she will receive $110,000 a year and benefits that include the city paying 80 percent for a family health insurance Finkam plan for three years with automatic renewal for another three years. “By virtue of the president of the board of directors, Dan McFeely, approving a more than $700,000 six-year salary commitment, of which over 70 percent of the 6-week-old corporation’s initial city grant money funding of $220,000 is already spent on administrative costs since (the) CEO has incurred (the) expense of traveling to Germany (the) week of May 30, 2017, plus a contractual commitment of City of Carmel employees to work the Christkindlmarkt, Inc. project, the city has high risk in losing the $220,000 investment plus (it) may be liable for future costs since the (Carmel Redevelopment Commission’s) investment of the 42 Christkindl huts (is) currently being procured,” Pauley stated in an email to the city council. “From what has been presented to this office, the corporation has no other source of revenues to sustain these costs but future city funding.” The $220,000 claim originally was planned to be up for a vote at the regular June 5 council meeting, but Pauley said she told Brainard she wasn’t ready to sign off on it. She requested the item be placed on the council’s next regular agenda for June 19. Brainard said the special session was necessary to pay bills.

Boys track state champs again By Mark Ambrogi • Carmel High School boys track and field coach Ken Browner marvels at Ryan Lipe’s versatility. achievement “He’s an amazing athlete,” Browner said. “He’s one of the top five kids I’ve ever coached in my life. He could run a 10.61 (in the 100 meters), switch shoes, get on the runway and vault 17-3 to win. It was an amazing swing for the emotion of the team. From that point, we just caught fire.” Lipe, who will compete for the University of Alabama next season, captured the pole vault state title for the second consecutive year; was second in the 100 meters; and was on the 400 and 1,600 relay teams that placed sixth as the Greyhounds won the state title June 2 with 69 points, 22 more than second-place Avon. Lipe said he got a boost from teammates and fans after he surprised himself by finishing second in the 100. When he got back to the pole vault, he knew he needed to clear 17-3 to win. “When I did, I felt like I was on top of the world,” he said. His twin brother, Mitch,

Inspired effort leads to title By Mark Ambrogi • Shortly before the state team championship match, Carmel High School girls tennis coach Spencer Fields had seritennis ous doubts whether his No. 1 singles player could go. Cramping badly after her three-hour victory over defending state singles champion Maeve Koscielski of Cathedral in the semifinals, junior Lauren Lemonds was in an ambulance receiving IV fluids. “We were preparing subs,” Fields said. “We had a very bad feeling about whether she was going to play a second match.” Lemonds was more confident than Fields that she would play. “A lot of athletes would panic, but she seemed calm about it,” Fields said. Lemonds not only came back to play but she again rallied to top Providence’s Halli Trinkle in three sets in No. 1 Carmel’s 5-0 victory over No. 4 Providence June 3 at North Central High School. The Greyhounds had beaten No. 2 and defending state champion Cathedral 4-1 in the morning semifinals. Trailing a set and behind 4-1 in the second set, Lemonds beat Koscielski 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7-5).

“I had a bad headache and was cramping badly,” Lemonds said. “I was kind of worried because I only had two hours.” Fortunately, her father owns an ambulance company and got on the scene quickly. “I didn’t know I needed a doctor’s clearance, but I did,” Lemonds said. Lemonds said she felt better as the match went on as she rehydrated. Fields said doctors watched her closely and made sure she had food. The Greyhounds completed a perfect 19-0 season en route to their fourth state title in five years and ninth overall. Carmel tied its own record of seven IHSAA state team titles in a school year that it set in 2011-12.

County votes to censure Hern By Adam Aasen •

The Hamilton County Council voted 4-2 June 7 to censure councilor Jeff Hern after he accepted an agreement council in Hamilton County Superior Court May 24 on a charge of stealing a political opponent’s campaign signs during the 2016 primary campaign. Councilor Rick McKinney, who had his signs stolen, publicly stated he wanted Hern to resign from the council. Several members of the public at the meeting asked for the same. McKinney said it is posHern sible to remove a councilor with a two-thirds vote of the council, but that wasn’t proposed at the meeting. At the meeting, Hern said he never admitted guilt in the case. The signed agreement, obtained by Current states that prosecution would be withheld if Hern, “the defendant, admits the offense of criminal mischief, class A Misdemeanor.” The document also states that Hern must pay McKinney $892.49 for

the cost of the campaign signs and send him a letter of apology. If Hern complies with the signed agreement, then “prosecution of this matter will be withheld,” according to the document. At the meeting, Hern said, “there is no crime,” and that he only agreed to the deal because he said his attorney advised him it would cost $20,000 to proceed. “This is surprising to me that there’s been an ‘admission of guilt,’” Hern said. Hern’s cellphone was discovered at the scene where McKinney’s signs were stolen, but Hern said McKinney his cellphone and checkbook had been stolen from his car, a claim he reiterated at the meeting. “We fight to get the people we want in office and get out those we don’t,” Hern said. Hern ran against McKinney and four others in the Republican primary for three open seats on the Hamilton County Council. Hern, McKinney and Brad Beaver won the primary and general elections.

By Heather Collins Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation is the first park system in Indiana to install Mamava, a private monon center breastfeeding suite. The suite is inside the west building of the Monon Community Center. Lindsay Labas, CCPR marketing director, said center members brought up the idea, then CCPR Chief Operating Officer Michael Klitzing saw a Mamava lactation pod while at a conference. CCPR decided to install the suite as a solution for the community’s request. “It is our culture to be inclusive, and while we welcome breastfeeding everywhere, by installing a Mamava suite, we are now able to accomodate all new moms, some of which may not be comfortable breastfeeding/pumping in public,” Labas said. “We hope that by providing this amenity, new moms will get the best of both worlds by being able to breastfeed/pump when they need to and fit their workouts into their busy schedule.” The 4-foot by 8-foot pod is equipped with

2 CHS students in pageant By Mark Ambrogi • Shelby Kate Everitt has been dancing since she was 3 years old. “It’s something that Miss Indiana I’ve really shown my passion for in the Miss America organization,” Everitt said. Everitt wants as many children as possible to have the opportunity to share that love. As a candidate for Miss Indiana’s Outstanding Teen, Everitt’s platform is Kids Dance Outreach, a Everitt nonprofit organization. “It’s bringing dance to inner-city schools like IPS,” she said. Everitt, 17, will join fellow Carmel High School student Bella Harrison, 16, in the Miss Outstanding Teen competition. Both will be seniors this fall. Three nights of preliminary competition in the Miss Indiana and Miss Outstanding Teen competition will be held June 14, 15 and 16 with the Miss Indiana final set for 6 p.m. June 17 at the Zionsville Performing Arts Center. Everitt has been competing in pageants

since eighth grade. This is her fourth Miss Outstanding Teen contest. Everitt, who was the 2015 Indiana Miss Outstanding Teen runner-up, qualified by winning Miss Southern Heartland’s Outstanding Teen. Unlike Everitt, Harrison is a newcomer to the pageant world. She qualified in just her second pageant, Miss Heart of Indiana, earlier this spring. “I like the environment and community that’s there and the friendships with the girls in just the few hours you are there with them,” Harrison said. “You have a common goal Harrison but are all wanting the others to win at the same time. You’re not there as competitors, per se, all the time. You are there as friends who are trying to improve upon themselves.” Harrison’s platform is to end human trafficking. She held a fundraiser at Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt for Hope for Justice, a nonprofit devoted to the mission of helping human trafficking victims. Harrison, who is graduating in December, is a student athletic trainer for CHS sports and plans to pursue that in college.

Hilda Hadley has lived in Carmel since 1952. During her 65 years in the city, she has worked with her church, the CCHS Girl Scouts and local government. She’s gotten married and raised a family. And she has watched her city evolve and grow, just as she has. Now 90-years-old and living in a retirement community called Summer Trace, Hadley finally has a chance to tell her story. Hadley teamed up with the Carmel Clay Historical Society to craft a 20-minute video about Carmel’s history, from its rapid development to why it was included in the “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” book series. The video will premiere at a free screening at 6:30 p.m. June 14 at Summer Trace, 12999 N. Pennsylvania St. The video and screening are sponsored by Clay Township Trustee Doug Callahan. “I’m very excited,” Hadley said. “All my friends will be there, and I’m excited for everyone to hear these stories.”

But Carmel is no longer the old country town Hilda remembers from days gone by. Times have changed things, and Carmel is now a suburban city, no longer the community she said it once was. But Hadley said she wouldn’t go back in time. Change is good, she said, as long as it doesn’t happen too quickly. And Carmel is still Carmel at its core, she said. “The big farms, the churches, the community, it all makes it Carmel,” she said. See a trailer for the video at vimeo. com/219157706/001319c550.

CHS grad racks up honors By Mark Ambrogi • Alex Bourdeau went from not being aware there was a student employee award to winning four achievement of them. Bourdeau, a 2013 Carmel High School graduate, was recently named Ball State University’s Student Employee of the Year. At the same time, he learned he won student employee for the state and midwest region and nationally. Bourdeau, who worked at Ball State’s iStudio for the Dept. of Educational Psychology, had never heard of the honor until he learned he was nominated by his boss, Dr. Jerrell Cassady, for the Ball State honor. Bourdeau learned he won all four awards at once. “I went to go sit down after the first award and they told me to stay up there,” he said. “I guess I’m the first person ever to win all four awards. At least, that’s what I was told.” Bourdeau earned $1,000 for the national award, $175 for the regional, $150 for state and $100 for the university. He is the first Ball State student to win the national award. “My job tasks were data input and data

Luke Sartino is a typical college student in many ways. An rising senior at Marian University, where he’s a memkarate ber of the men’s soccer team, he spends his free time studying and practicing. But the 21-year-old also is preparing for another title: Olympic karate contender. Sartino recently participated in karate competitions in Malta, Spain, and Las Vegas in preparation for his ultimate life goal of winning an Olympic gold medal. He won first place in Malta and went undefeated in Las Vegas. “It’s important to get this experience fighting people from all over the world, because people from different parts of the world fight very differently,” Sartino said. Unlike many countries, the U.S. doesn’t fund its karate athletes, Sartino said, so he pays for trips out of his own pocket. And unlike other nation’s athletes who may receive funding to spend their days training, he has to juggle his schedule to build in time for training. “Being a college student, it’s definitely very hard to leave classes in the middle of the week to compete in Europe and then return and get right back into the swing of things,” Sartino said. “These events won’t qualify me for anything. However, they will help me continue to polish my image and become more well known in the karate world before the Olympics.” As team captain, Sartino provides team-

mates with tips and advice to help them in international competition. It’s a role he’s dreamed of since his first international trip when he was 10. “That can range from knowledge of the rules, how the tournament is organized or how to conduct themselves inside the tournament,” he said. “Occasionally, I also get the chance to assist in running the team training sessions while abroad.” It’s all in preparation for the 2020 Olympic Trials, which will take place a few months prior to the Summer Games. And competition will be tough. Only 80 athletes in karate, 40 men and 40 women, will make the team. “Of the 40 males there are four different divisions, which means there will only be 10 athletes in my weight category who will get the spot to compete in the Olympics,” Sartino said. “I definitely picture myself on the medal stand in 2020. If I didn’t picture myself on the medal stand, I would have a hard time keeping myself motivated to train every day.”

Brothers’ IceBr8kr app uses tech to create real-life connections By Ann Marie Shambaugh With so many social media outlets available at the touch of a button, one would think it would be easier cover story than ever to meet people and make friends. Neal and Jay Phalora are convinced the opposite is true. But they also believe it’s possible for technology to solve this problem, and they have set out to prove it. In March, the brothers launched IceBr8kr, an app that lets users find each other within a shared 100-yard radius with a simple digital “Hello” that can easily lead to a reallife meeting if both parties are interested. “Social media has put a divide in being social. People are looking down at their phones. People are sitting on their couch, not actually having any human interaction,” Jay said. “The most awkward part of meeting someone new is that first meeting, that first initial breaking of the ice with somebody new. We’ve come up with a way that can alleviate some of that awkwardness.” If two IceBr8kr users make contact through the app, they can send each other up to eight messages before being disconnected from each other for an hour. That’s enough time for them to decide if they want to meet in person, Jay said. IceBr8kr is not intended to be a messaging app. “It’s there to actually promote the actual human interaction of meeting someone and talking to somebody new,” he said.

Neal said he’s always had a creative side. He remembers coming up with inventions as a kid and building things with his father. But after attending Anderson University, his career path took him into business development for biotech companies. In late 2016 he decided to leave that field and focus on IceBr8kr and his other business,

A father’s influence

The Phaloras grew up in Anderson, where their father, Dr. Onkar S. Phalora, taught at Anderson University for 32 years. Onkar now resides in Noblesville, but he grew up in India at the base of the Himalayas. He came to the U.S. in 1961 to get a college education. Neal and Jay credit their father with instilling a strong work ethic in them, as neither had much of a background in tech when they decided to create an app. “It was a huge, huge learning curve,” said Jay, adding that he often spent six to eight hours a day trying to debug IceBr8kr. “We will sit with a problem longer than most people, and that’s something our dad has drilled in us.”

DocRx Now, full time. He is also a public speaker and life coach. Neal and his wife live in Carmel with their 2-year-old twins. He said they were “totally naïve” when they bought their home but couldn’t have ended up in a better place. “We live right off the Monon,” he said. “We discovered after the fact The Palladium and the events that are going on every weekend.” Jay studied economics at Anderson University and earned a law degree at Valparaiso University. He lives in Valparaiso, where he started a mortgage and financial company that he still runs. He and his wife are expecting their first child this fall. The brothers relied on Carmel-based Swan Software to help code the app, but they did most of the debugging to make sure IceBr8kr worked exactly as envisioned. “Neither of us are programmers, so Jay and I spent a lot of time looking on (online) threads because of our upbringing and our dad’s demand on us in some ways to push us to say that we can find the answers, because that’s how he raised us,” Neal said. “This project looks simple, but it was a lot more complex than any of us saw when we initially got into this.”

Test run

The Phaloras decided run one of the first large-scale IceBr8kr tests in a familiar

place: Anderson University. They felt a college campus would be an ideal spot to use IceBr8kr, and it turns out they were right. Victor Mweu was among the students who helped test the app at Anderson. “I truly believe IceBr8kr is an app of the future,” he said. “It addresses such an important aspect of life: meeting new people. By bridging the gap of introduction through technology, in any setting, IceBr8kr has no competition in the app stores.” But the app isn’t just for students. Neal said it could help people in any community get to know each other better, especially if certain places, such as cafés or restaurants, become known as IceBr8kr hotspots. He also sees it as a good fit for the business community, helping to simplify networking at events and conventions. Wherever it’s used, the Phaloras hope their technology will result in friendships that go beyond a screen. “If you feel like you want to break the ice with somebody after a few conversations, you can just walk over and meet them face-to-face,” Jay said. “It’s a very real-time situation.” Learn more at

a big collision Not long after launching, IceBr8kr caught the attention of some big names in the tech industry. The brothers were accepted into the Alpha Mentorship program at Collision, a tech conference in New Orleans that draws 20,000 people from 50 countries. Only 10 percent of companies that apply for the Alpha program are accepted. Alpha participants exhibit their ideas on the conference floor, have special networking opportunities, mentorship from venture capitalists and receive other perks. “We felt very validated by all the attention and turnout,” Neal said. “Being novice at this convention, we felt a sense of accomplishment as our app was well-received and much further along than many of the prototypes that were exhibiting.” The Phaloras hope to return to the Collision conference in 2018.

A survivor’s tale

Outdoor cooking

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Commentary by Terry Anker It must be summer because we are cooking outside! What is it about longer, warmer days that urges us to move from the comfortable confines of our cozy kitchens to brave the complexities of charcoal and imprecise temperature control? From the earliest times, we humans have maintained our precious fires inside, first in the cave, then in the hut. We understand that control over the resource is part-and-parcel to dominion on this planet. Modern ranges, heating and cooling units and other devices all reflect efforts to perfect management of our environment. With reduced threat from wildlife and other human enemies, we came to recognize that an outdoor kitchen was both safer and cooler, especially in the heat of the summer months. Technology allowed us to conjure fires more easily and organized society begat rule-of-law and professional enforcement. Perhaps our Weber Grills reflect this move of the hearth from the cave to the lawn. Even as improved security has allowed us to live outside without fear, upgraded technology makes staying indoors cool and comfortable. So, are we cooking out because we always have or for other reasons? Is a big fire under a big sky just a part of our DNA? Or, do we have a panoply of new justifications? What other rituals in our daily lives are an echo of some earlier, and justifiable, behavior that we continue to do nowadays more from habit than from necessity? Cooking outdoors is fun, disrupts the routine and rustles up some unusual flavors. The tradition’s modern iteration seems worthy of retention. Can we say the same for all the habits we keep?

Raising cigarette tax can save lives Editor, “When did you quit?” I ask. “Ten years ago,” she replies. “I wish I had never started. Quitting was the hardest thing I ever did, and it doesn’t undo the 30 years before.” I nod with understanding as I start her IV. The respiratory therapist has already been called to give her a breathing treatment. She is audibly wheezing, with a rattling cough. I will see many like her throughout my day. Most likely, you know someone who smokes. Indiana is ranked 44th worst in the nation, meaning 23 percent of Hoosiers smoke. Maybe you know someone who has developed a lung condition or has cancer that stems from smoking. It is legal, highly addictive and deadly: 11,100 Hoosiers die from smoking-related illnesses every year. Therefore, I support raising the cigarette tax and the legal smoking age. In Indiana, 4,100 teenagers start smoking

every year. It is believed that raising the legal age would reduce smoking by 12 percent. Indiana has the lowest cigarette tax compared to our other neighboring states, besides Kentucky. Those who oppose raising the cigarette tax are concerned that raising prices will hurt businesses that profit from cigarette sales. However, the increased tax will increase revenue for Indiana, and the hope is that it will lower the $6 billion spent in health care costs from smoking-related illnesses. As an emergency department nurse, I see the effects of smoking every day. Watching a loved one struggle to breathe is devastating. So I ask: Speak to your legislator about the need to raise the cigarette tax and the legal smoking age. If we can make it a little bit harder for someone to smoke and give them a little more cause to consider the risks they are taking, then we might just save a life. Ashley Estep, Carmel

I survived another Memorial Weekend with the in-law family, folks – 20 kids and 12 adults, all piled into humor a 100-year-old lake house in northern Indiana. I’m pleased to report that there were no shankings or “accidental” poisonings, and that all couples emerged still sound in their marriages. But Lady Drama managed to find our little reunion, as she is want to do when that many people are working out of one kitchen and no one is sleeping. I planned accordingly and arrived one day late, knowing that the Friday night in-processing is a hot mess. Cousins so excited to see one another they literally are bouncing off walls; brothers giddy to have a few days together to relax and catch up; and sisters-in-law eyeballing each other, trying to determine which of their bedtime routines will ultimately win out (there can be only one!). Actually, we all get along really well and have learned to express frustrations early and often. But by the last night, defenses are gone, fatigue has set in and wine is making a play for family membership. Enter two strung-out moms trying to get the youngest down for the night after a slight misunderstanding about the agreed-upon bedtime. Amid harsh words, jabby fingers and a lobbed F-bomb, Lady D easily claims her next victims. As a non-participant in the fun turn of events, I found the whole incident highly entertaining. Not that I enjoy seeing my sisters-in-law argue, but when both are so clearly exhausted from keeping their young kids alive in true chaos, it was only a matter of time before they’d detonate. Besides, per usual, apologies and hugs were given the next morning. Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a contributing columnist. You may email her at danielle@

READERS ’ V I EWS Headline was ‘clueless and offensive’ Editor, Co-opting the “Trail of Tears” headline for something other than the historic event of the near decimation of the Cherokee

seemed clueless and offensive. Editors need to step in and edit. Catherine Hughes, Carmel

Let’s hold elected officials accountable on health care Editor, We all reap the benefits of our Constitution when our elected leaders make decisions based on research and ethics. We lose out when self-interests or the interests of corporations lead the decisionmaking process. When it comes to something like health care, I want to know that decisions are made that serve all Americans – encouraging us to make healthy choices to prevent some ailments and providing financial and medical support in times of need. I don’t want to have a plethora of plans or have variability as far as health care provisions based on our residency. I want to live in a country where health care is provided for all — one plan that covers thoroughly and

definitively. I want this plan based on research as far as what is working for us and other nations as well as what we want to improve upon. I want to know every American has access to see a doctor when needed, has access to prescriptions when needed and receives outstanding medical care when needed. As Americans, we do have to evaluate our daily habits and work to stay healthy, but no one of us can predict a catastrophic medical condition that we or a loved one may face in the future. Let’s hold our elected officials accountable to do what is right in making sure every American has quality health care. Shelley Carey, Carmel

Children deserve more recess time Editor, I want to thank Sara Baldwin for bringing to light the recess issue in Carmel. If CCS wants to stay at the top, they need to start addressing these issues head-on instead of pushing the issue on to the teachers. Letting teachers “allot recess time if they feel

it is needed” seems like an abstract plan with no real solution. I hope Dr. (Nick) Wahl will take full responsibility for this issue and just require 15 extra minutes of recess a day. The children deserve so much more. Jazzy O’Brien, Noblesville

Indiana should protect its treasured documents Editor, The Tennessee State Legislature voted to appropriate $98 million for a new Tennessee State Archives. The Indiana House of Representatives, however, voted down a request for $27.5 million for a new Indiana State Archives building to replace the dangerous, leaking warehouse that currently houses our own archives. Indiana’s most treasured documents — records about Indiana’s first black Civil War regiment, photographs of the Beatles’ con-

cert at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, files from Gov. Mike Pence’s administration, and information about Mike Tyson and John Dillinger — have been in this abysmal “temporary” location for 16 years. I applaud our Tennessee neighbors for their good sense and planning for the future. The lack of vision and foresight shown in our own legislature is unfortunate. The General Assembly voted yes to a new building in 2015. Now they need to come through on their promise. Katherine Dill, Carmel

Jokes on you, brother Commentary by Dick Wolfsie “Are you sitting down?” my sister asked. “Our brother is about to do something a 66-year-old man seldom does humor at this point in his life.” I called out to my wife, “Start packing, Mary Ellen. We’re going to New York for my brother’s Bar Mitzvah!” “No,” Linda said, “it’s even a little stranger than that. He’s decided to get married.” “OK.” “You don’t seem very shocked.” “Not shocked, yet. Now, let’s see if he can find a wife.” The same day, I got this text from Peter, a lifelong bachelor and NYC cab driver: “Dick, I want you to give the first toast at my wedding. Please don’t mention sex, politics, my drinking, my gambling, my bad temper or any of my former girlfriends. My fiancée’s name is Ana. She is from Peru. That’s pretty much all I know about her. Thanks, Peter.” Here are some of the jokes I plan to tell on June 24. JOKE 1:  When Peter decided to ask Ana to marry him, they took a long romantic drive to the seashore, where he proposed.

of the evening, he took her home, and when they got to her driveway, he turned to her in the back seat and said: “That’ll be $135.” JOKE 2:  When I met Ana, I told Peter what a lovely woman she is. Then I said, “Funny, she doesn’t look Peru-ish.” JOKE 3:  Peter asked me not to mention gambling because he said that once he tied the knot he was never going to make a wager again. “What are the chances you can keep that promise?” I asked. “I’d say the odds are 20 to one.” JOKE 4:  My brother has had contentious relationships with women, always arguing with one, in particular. They both drank too much and sometimes went weeks without speaking. Unfortunately, that was our mother. I won’t really tell these jokes. I want people to remember me as the caring brother who made a heartfelt congratulatory speech. And just to be sure I sound sincere, I’ll ask Mary Ellen to write it for me.

HEALTH Dispatches Sweetener or pesticide? — The artificial sweetener used in Truvia can be used as a pesticide, according to a new study by Drexel University researchers. When the researchers fed flies erythritol, the sugar alcohol used in Truvia, not only did they find that the larvae were eliminated within three days but also that the flies barely produced any eggs (if at all). So is it still safe to consume? Although it has been recognized by the FDA as safe, further research still needs to be done.

Women’s Fund of Central Indiana announces mental health partnerships with cities, colleges — Women’s Fund of Central Indiana has convened community partners to join the national Campaign to Change Direction on mental health. Nine cities, 46 college campuses, plus hospitals, health departments, chambers, foundations and businesses have pledged to advocate for open, honest conversation about mental health in central Indiana.

Protect your eyes from the sun Commentary by Matthew Clark, OD As the warming weather begins to draw you toward your favorite pool chair, par 3, playground vision health or park this summer, don’t forget to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light. Short-term UV can cause uncomfortable sunburn on the surface of the eye, while long-term exposure can cause irreversible damage, including cataracts and macular degeneration. Here are a few protective measures to shield your eyes this summer. • The first is obvious. Sunglasses! Sunglasses protect your peepers by filtering out harmful UV rays. However, not all sunwear is created equal. Polarization is king, blocking 100 percent of damaging UV. Sunglasses without UV protection are particularly bad, as they cause your pupils to widen, allowing even more ultraviolet light into the eye. Wondering whether your current sunglasses are polarized? Take a look at your phone or a computer monitor and tilt your head side-to-side. If the colors

change, your sunglasses are good to go! Some non-polarized sunglasses may still offer UV protection via lens material or coatings. • If you’re a contact lens wearer and you spend a lot of time outside, tell your eye doctor you would like to try some contact lenses with built-in UV protection. Contact lenses will not protect your entire eye from the sun, but some brands filter up to 97% of UV light. Kids who play outdoor sports will especially benefit from this great technology. • If you wear glasses most days and don’t want to switch back and forth from glasses to sunglasses, put an anti-glare coating on your lenses with UV protection in them. It’s comparable to putting SPF 50 sunscreen on your eyes, but it’ll certainly sting less.

Jenny Sarno has a powerful emotional connection to Outrun the Sun. Sarno is one of the skin cancer founders of the nonprofit, which will hold its 13th Outrun the Sun Race Against Melanoma at 6 p.m. June 17 at the Lawton Loop Parade Grounds, with courses through Fort Benjamin State Park. The run raises money for medical research for melanoma. Sarno’s first husband, Gary Patton, died from melanoma in 2002 at the age of 40. Patton was a lifelong friend of Rob Day. Day’s wife, Anita, and her sister, Jonna MacDougall, lost their father, John Busse, to melanoma the same month. Along with another friend, Marci Reddick, they formed the Outrun the Sun nonprofit. “It’s in my heart all the time,” said Sarno, a 1982 Carmel High School graduate and Carmel resident. The same is true for her son, Will, who was just 3 1/2 years old when his dad died. “Outrun the Sun is very important to me,” said Will, who graduated from CHS last month. “It allows me to get involved and educate others of the risks of skin cancer.

Jenny Sarno and her son, Will Patton, are devoted to sun safety. (Submitted photo)

I do not want others to lose a family member like I did.” Sarno said her son, who is going to Indiana University, is always passing out sunscreen and talking to other kids about the issue. Sarno said Will wants to be a dermatologist. Sarno said her son has volunteered for the run through the years. “He’s there for me (on race day) because that is a very emotional day,” Sarno said. “It’s amazing to see all these people there for this one cause.” To register for the races (5-mile, 5K and 1-mile), visit

My Pretty Little Pretzel off to fast start By Adam Aasen • For years, friends have told Carmel resident Kate Wilson she should sell her homemade truffles and new biz chocolate-covered pretzels. Since 2008, she has made the treats for Christmas gifts or for her three kids’ events. After seeing people pitch similar businesses on shows like “Shark Tank,” friends told Wilson she should do it. But she shrugged it off. It wasn’t until she threw her back out and experienced extreme pain that Wilson realized it was time to finally “quit making excuses and just go for it,” she said. In November 2015, she had back surgery. The pain was so bad it limited her ability to perform certain tasks. “I experienced a pain that I didn’t really know existed in this world,” she said. “Electricity was shooting up my body.” When she recovered after four months of pain, Wilson knew it was time to pursue her passion. She felt fortunate to get out of bed and didn’t want to take anything for granted. “I know God didn’t take me this far in my life to leave me debilitated,” she said.

“It was the push I needed to finally start my own business.” In summer 2016, she formed an LLC and created My Pretty Little Pretzel. She remodeled a room in her home to be compliant with the county health department to create her sweets. Her big break came with a large order from a corporate client. Word of mouth spread, and she began to expand. She hired some seasonal help and added more equipment. She’s already making room for more space. Her products are sold at Metazoa Brewery, Hotel Tango and Goose The Market. Brides-to-be can also find the products at The Wedding Studio, Mavris Arts and Events Center, The Sanctuary and Balmoral House. Wilson also is getting ready for a busy holiday season. She said she’s a little nervous because everything is growing so fast, which is a good thing. “It’s a little overwhelming, but it’s exciting,” she said.

Dieu Suki, Vicky Pham and John Nguyen prepare to cut the ribbon to celebrate the grand opening of Greyhound Nails. (Submitted photo)

Nail salon opens in Clay Terrace By Chris Bavender Last fall, Vicky Pham sold her nail salon businesses and planned to move out of state. But she opted to stay local and recently opened Greyhound new biz Nails in Clay Terrace. Finding the right location was easy, Pham said. “It is right in the middle of all my clients from past years,” she said. “And, hey, who wouldn’t want to be pampered prior to or after a little day out shopping?” Located between Whole Foods and Sprint, Pham said her goal is to “provide a clean, professional, friendly and enjoyable environment for all of our pampered guests.” “We offer a variety of services, including kids’ nails, artificial nails, manicures and pedicures, facials, body exfoliating, waxing, eye tint and massage treatments,”

Pham said. “Greyhound Nails also offers spa services for nursing homes and in-home private parties.” Pham chose the salon’s name to fit the local community. “I landed on the name Greyhound Nails from the location and the high school mascot and to help represent Carmel,” she said. Greyhound Nails employs four full-time and two part-time employees who have a combined experience of more than 60 years. The salon had its grand opening last month. “When I opened my other four stores I didn’t have a big bow to cut like I did here, which made it fun,” Pham said. “We had people and friends who came in and out all day long. The free Vietnamese food disappeared quickly as well. It was a long day, but God kept the rain away, thankfully.” For more, visit

Car show set for June 18 By Mark Ambrogi • Organizers have their own funny description for the Central Indiana Vintage Vehicles car show. “We laughingly call it a no-class car show because we don’t have any classes, it’s just an open show,” said Larry Grabb, a member of the CIVV board of directors and a car collector. “I have a 1969 AMC AMX, which is kind of my favorite because I bought it new after I came back home from overseas (serving in the military). It’s what I would call a poor man’s Corvette.” The 28th annual car show is set for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 18 in Forest Park in Noblesville. “We have four judged trophies we give,” Grabb said. “We have 25 other trophies we give. We figure everybody is a winner, so we draw for those other 25 trophies.” Grabb, a Noblesville resident, said most of the organization’s members are from Hamilton County. The four categories are best of show, best interior, best paint job and best engine.

The car show raises funds for the Elysian Foundation, which supports severely brain-damaged individuals. “The last few years we have maxed out at 300 cars,” Grabb said. “The (Noblesville) Parks Dept. estimates we have (had) nine to 10,000 the last couple of years.” There will be music from the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Grabb serves as the disc jockey. There will also be a 50-50 raffle drawing. Registration is from 8 a.m. to noon that day and costs $10. The awards are presented at 3 p.m. A 1936 Ford Street Rod is one of the cars that has been on display at a previous Central Indiana Vintage Vehicles car show. (Submitted photo)

Beyond the flame: Put a sizzle to your Father’s Day grilling

Submitted content and photos courtesy of Family Features.

Find tips to make your summer grilling great at 7 steps to great steak Achieve steakhouse-worthy results at home with these tips from Omaha Steaks Executive Chef Grant Hon. 1. Proper preparation. Clean and heat your grill to high. Make sure to oil grates after cleaning. 2. Prepare your steaks. Pat steaks dry and season food before grilling. Use sea salt and freshly cracked pepper or a complete steak seasoning or rub. 3. Searing. Sear steaks over high heat and avoid moving them before they’re fully seared on all sides to protect flavor and juiciness. 4. Handling steaks on the grill. Use tongs or a spatula to turn meat on

the grill; poking with a fork can damage the meat. 5. Controlling your cook. Close grill cover as much as possible while cooking to maintain a temperature around 450 F. This helps lock in flavor and prevent flare-ups. After determining the amount of time you’ll need to reach your desired doneness, use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill 60 percent on the first side then 40 percent after you turn the steak over for an even cook. 6. Juiciness. After grilling, allow steaks to rest tented with foil for 5 minutes between cooking and serving. This lets juices redistribute for the besttasting and juiciest steak. 7. Finish and enjoy. Garnish steak and serve with style. Add colors, textures and flavors to make perfectly grilled steak even more memorable.

Dads, schedule ‘you’ time Commentary by Jon Quick Authorities are unsure who first said it, but the message is clear: “No man ever said on his deathbed ‘I wish I had spent more time in the office’.” It’s amazing how often I hear from clients, “I just don’t have time.” That’s fine, to a point. It creates business for me. It gets concerning, though, when it’s obvious someone is working so hard that the result is havoc with family, friends and their own physical health. Yet, it happens all the time. We schedule time for everyone else, but all too often not any time for ourselves or loved ones. First, we need to agree to a couple of principles: 1) Without a healthy “me,” there would be no business, and 2) Without the bonding of family and friends, life would pretty much be without meaning. We all know about people who have all the material things in the world but remain unhappy. So why not start now before you become another victim who faces his final days with regret? Schedule some time for yourself each and every day. Even if it’s just 15 minutes. Take some time to do some exercise. Step outside and breath some fresh air. Yes, stop and smell those roses. Personally, I prefer the lilacs. En-

joy a sunset with someone special. Toss the ball with the kids. Just sit alone and meditate. And, by all means, turn off your cellphone. The DepT. of Health and Human Services calls for adults between the ages of 18 and 64 to exercise moderately (such as brisk walking or water aerobics) for at least two hours and 30 minutes or vigorously (running, swimming, or cycling 10 mph or faster) for at least 1 hour and 15 minutes weekly. That’s weekly. Really not a whole lot of time out of that busy schedule of yours when figured per day. According to the DHHS, the longer, harder and more often you exercise, the greater the health benefits and the longer you live. While you’re at it, train yourself to have a positive outlook, adopt a glass is half-full approach, and stay away from people who can never see the joy in anything. We all know stress is one of the biggest killers of all. Start tomorrow. Schedule some ‘you’ time. You’ll thank yourself for it.

Dark Chocolate Avocado Mousse By Sara Baldwin Inspired by Adventures in Cooking Want to make dad a decadent dessert?

Ingredients: • 1/2 cup dark chocolate — I use Madécasse Madagascar Chocolate Discs • 3/4 cup canned full-fat coconut milk • 4 medium-sized ripe avocados • 1/2 cup agave • 1/2 cup cocoa or carob powder — I use 365 Organic Cocoa Powder from Fair Trade Cocoa Beans • 1 tablespoon raw sugar • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract • sea salt to taste (between a pinch and 1/2 teaspoon) Directions: Chop the chocolate discs

and melt over the stove using a double boiler. Peel avocados, remove pits, and slice. Add all ingredients to a blender, adding the melted chocolate last.

Cool eats: homemade gelato Commentary by Adam Aasen

There’s something romantic about sharing a cup of smooth gelato or ice cream with your loved one. Whether it’s for a birthday recipe or an anniversary, whether it’s hot outside or cold, nothing beats a fresh scoop of these icy treats. At my family’s business, Donatello’s Italian Restaurant, at 9 W. Main St. in Carmel, we make fresh gelato, ice cream, custard and sorbet every week. It’s something new we’ve been trying and it’s gone over great, especially our espresso, chocolate and butterscotch flavors. Here are some tips if you’d like to make your own ice cream or gelato at home. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ICE CREAM, GELATO AND CUSTARD? Gelato is lower in butterfat than traditional ice cream. Ice cream has about 14 to 25 percent fat while gelato has 4 to 9 percent. In your home machine, you’ll use different ratios of heavy whipping cream and milk if you’re making gelato or ice cream. Gelato also is denser, with less air churned into it. Gelato is served at a warmer temperature, usually 10 to 15 degrees warmer than American ice cream. Frozen custard is basically the same as ice cream except it contains egg yolk. WHAT KIND OF MACHINE DO I NEED? It doesn’t necessarily matter but certain models make it a lot easier. A removable bowl and paddle for easy clean-up is almost a must. The engine doesn’t need to be super strong, as long as it doesn’t start smoking while churning thick ice cream. Ice cream makers with built-in compressors will keep your ice cream cold and save time, but I’ve heard of people having OK results with a machine with a detachable canister that needs to be frozen overnight. HOW DO I MAKE IT SOFTER OR FIRMER? Milk freezes, but other ingredients don’t, such as sugar, fat, alcohol or any added ingredients such as gelatin powder. The higher the fat content is or higher the amount of sugar, then the softer you’re ice cream or gelato will be. BIGGEST MISTAKE? Serving it too soon. Gelato or ice cream

needs about six to 12 hours in the freezer before it’s firm enough to serve.

recipe Here’s how to make sweet cream gelato. With this base, you can add flavorings such as cinnamon, caramel syrup or vanilla extract to make your own homemade gelato. Ingredients: • 2 ounces milk powder • 6.35 ounces granulated sugar • 0.7 ounce tapioca starch • 6.75 ounces heavy cream • 24.15 ounces whole milk • 0.9 ounce light corn syrup Directions: Mix the milk powder, sugar and tapioca starch in a bowl. Add the cream and milk and whisk well to incorporate the ingredients. Whisk in corn syrup. Pour the mixture into a 2.5-quart saucepan and slowly heat on mediumheat. Do not turn up all of the way. Burning will ruin the flavor. Scrape the sides and whisk until it’s thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature and then put in the refrigerator until completely cool. This might take 2-to- 4 hours. Pour the mixture into the gelato machine and turn on. Let it spin until it’s rich and creamy but still soft enough to scoop. This might take 45 minutes. Remove from machine and freeze for at least six hours before serving.

Local students face ‘13’ challenge By Mark Ambrogi • Actress Addison Stein doesn’t really relate to her character, Kendra, but that makes it all the more fun. Theater “It’s really different than most roles I go for because she’s really ditzy,” said Stein, who will be a senior at Carmel High School in August. “She doesn’t have much except her looks going for her, so it’s really fun to be able to be dumb. This role is more challenging, acting-wise, but it will definitely help me broaden my horizons, so I’m really excited.” Stein will perform in “13 the Musical” June 23 to July 2 at the Carmel Community Playhouse, 14299 Clay Terrace Blvd. Anya Burke, who will be a Westfield High School sophomore, plays Patrice. “She has a lot of high belting notes, and I’ve never done a high-belting voice, so that’s new,” said Burke, who has previously performed in school and Christian Youth Theater shows, along with some productions at the Belfry and Grace Church. Danny Staton, who will be CHS senior, plays Archie. “I love the fact that he’s such a snarky character,” Staton said. “He’s very sarcastic

sometimes. I can relate to that because I’m sarcastic sometimes.” Staton said it’s challenging because he will have to be on crutches during the performance because Archie has muscular dystrophy. Eli Robinson, a 2017 Center Grove High School graduate, has the role of Evan Goldman, who is forced to move from New York to a small Indiana town because of his parents’ divorce. “I like the fact it challenges me a lot,” Robinson said. “I’m a baritone and it’s a very tenor role. It’s fun to find that part of my voice and help that grow.” Carlo Nepomuceno is serving as the director. For more, visit

Ruins of Saturn’s Temple in Roman Forum. (Photo by Don Knebel)

A legacy of Saturn’s Temple? Commentary by Don Knebel The Roman Forum was at the very center of Western culture for hundreds of years. Some of the practices at its travel ancient temple may live on. In about 600 B.C., the fifth King of Rome drained a swampy valley between the Capitoline Hill and the Palatine Hill by diverting the water to the Tiber River in one of history’s first sewer systems. The reclaimed area became the site of the Forum, the center of Rome’s religious and political life. One of the most important buildings in the Forum was a temple dedicated to Saturn, the Roman god of prosperity and fertility. Erected in the fifth century B.C., the temple also served as the city’s treasury and a bank for wealthy Romans. Depositors made sacrifices at the temple in the hope that Saturn would increase their wealth. Inside the temple was a large wooden image of Saturn. His feet and legs were bound by woolen straps, removed each year at the time of the winter solstice. The unbinding, symbolizing liberation signaled

“I am 70 years old. I have been taking medication for blood pressure and cholesterol. Needless to say, I was worried if I could start an exercise program safely. John Karesh made it a nice, gradual transition and I am surprised what I can do now. I feel better now than when I was in my 50s.” -Janice H.

the beginning of a raucous celebration that began with sacrifices at Saturn’s temple. The celebration, called Saturnalia, continued with gift giving and a temporary suspension of laws governing social behavior. Slaves were given a week of freedom and the right to control their masters. At the beginning of Saturnalia, a man down on his luck was selected as Lord of Misrule to symbolize the turning of society upside down. It was a time of drunkenness and permissiveness. Saturn’s Temple was rebuilt in the fourth century after a devastating fire. All that remains from that temple are eight granite columns. But the spirit of the temple may survive in some of the traditions of Christmas, including gift giving, which many scholars believe were adopted from Saturnalia when Christianity became legal in the Roman Empire. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP. For the full column visit You may contact him at

Let’s STOP THE ABUSE, once and FOR ALL!


DEBUNKING MYTHS AROUND ELDER ABUSE TO BETTER PREVENT IT To celebrate World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (held annually on June 15), numerous organizations come together to denounce the widespread abuse inflicted on the elderly and inform the general public on ways to help put an end to this alarming problem. But first, in order to better recognize and prevent abusive behaviors committed against our seniors, we must debunk certain myths that unfortunately remain well rooted in popular belief. Here are four:


1. Abusive acts against the elderly are often committed by strangers. In reality, abusive behavior is more often committed by close relatives like family members, spouses, children or friends. 2. Victims of elder abuse often report violent incidents. The elderly are frequently torn between the affection they harbor for the abuser and the need to report cruel incidents that they experience. Sometimes, they may be dependent on the individual who is mistreating them, while other times they may simply be unaware that they’re the victims of abuse. 3. The elderly are incapable of making the right choices, especially informed financial decisions. The majority of seniors are more than capable of adequately managing their expenses and personal business. Their cognitive abilities don’t actually degrade as much as people may think, unless they have a specific illness. 4. Seniors who receive higher incomes are more at risk of experiencing abuse. Any elder can be the victim of abusive behavior, regardless of social status or financial standing. On June 15, wear your purple ribbon in solidarity!

WHERE WE STAND BrightStar Care vigorously opposes any and all forms of elder abuse. The elderly are our cherished links to the past, and they deserve to live their lives with honor, dignity and respect. That’s what we stand for, and from that we never will waver. We urge all others in our realm and beyond to join us in this effort. Since 2006, BrightStar Care has specialized with diligence in: • Companion care • Personal care • Skilled home care • Alzheimer's & dementia care • Child care • Additional care services • For a free in-home assessment call 317.706.0799
