Many school board policy changes were proposed at the June 9 school board meeting, the most striking of which was a change to the district’s weapons policy. schools The policy prohibits students, staff and teachers from carrying guns on school grounds, but it will now allow them to keep weapons secure in vehicle trunks and glove boxes on school property as long Phillips as the weapon is out of sight. Federal law has sought to prohibit guns on or around school property since the 1990s when the Gun-Free School Zones Act was passed. But the district’s proposed policy change would bring the district in line with a new state law that was passed this year and which will go into effect July 1. Gun advocates have said the law will remove the prospect of committing a felony for parents who have legal gun permits and have a weapon in their vehicle while they are picking up their children. School Board Member Greg Phillips said, “We have no choice but to implement a mistake.” The other school board members and Supt. Nicholas Wahl did not disagree. In fact, board president Layla Spanenberg said, “We would prefer not to have any weapons on school property.” But she said she was informed by the district’s lawyers that the board is prohibited by state law

from enacting a policy that would ban weapons in all circumstances. Most of Carmel’s Republican legislative officials (Rep. Steve Braun, Rep. Jerry Torr, Sen. Mike Delph and Sen. Scott Schneider) voted to approve the new state law with the exception of Republican State Sen. Luke Kenley. “Gov. Mike Pence believes in the right to keep and bear arms and that this is a common sense reform of the law that accomplishes the goal of keeping parents and law-abiding citizens from being Spanenburg charged with a felony when they pick their kids up at school or go to cheer on the local basketball team,” the governor’s office said in a statement at the time of the bill’s signing. However, the school board still needs to vote on the policy change at its next meeting on June 23. Other policy change recommendations that the board will consider at that time include the following policies: parent involvement, college and university programs, educational options, guidance and counseling, home-bound instructional programs, reproductive health and family planning, restraint and seclusion, and wellness. The policy change regarding teaching reproductive health and family planning garnered the most discussion at the June 9 meeting, but Spanenberg said it was needed to eliminate a redundancy between two existing policies. Philips said that while he personally had concerns it could lead to abstinence-only education, that no one had suggested implementing such a change.

Former daycare worker convicted The second of two daycare workers charged in the 2013 death of a 5-month-old child at an unlicensed Carmel daycare was found guilty on June 5. Kirsten Phillips, 23, was found guilty on felony counts of reckless homicide and involuntary manslaughter. A felony charge of neglect of a dependent had been previously dismissed. Phillips’s mother, Stacey Cox, 43, Phillips was sentenced to 425 days in prison in November after being convicted by a jury of involuntary manslaughter and two misdemeanor charges for deception and operation of a child care home without a license. Cox and Phillips, both Carmel residents at the time, were arrested as a result of the Jan. 24, 2013 death of Conor Tilson at an in-home daycare that Cox operated at 421 W.

There are still analog TVs?

Monon repaving schedule

Yes, and people in Carmel still use them to access local schools and government television channels. But that will come to an end as Bright House has announced that it will phase out its analog signal by mid-August. So what do you need to do to get ready for the digital conversion? Read more at www.currentincarmel.com.

It appears the plan to repave a portion of the Monon Trail won’t begin until 2015. The project would involve raising some manhole covers and the parks department would like MCI to pay for it. It will also give the city and parks department time to plan detour routes. Read more at www.currentincarmel.com.

After sitting in committee for almost two years, changes to Carmel’s Comprehensive Plan likely will be put in front of the council very soon. Although the Land Use government Committee still needs an official vote for a positive recommendation for the full Carmel City Council, members hashed out all of the changes June 9 and reached agreements on almost every issue. A brief meeting will be scheduled for early July to allow time to review the changes. Recently, some residents were concerned that the city would eliminate the potential for bike lanes throughout the city plans, opting for multiuse paths instead. These critics felt this would discourage cycling and that multi-use paths are not useful because serious cyclists traveling 20 miles an hour or more would share the paths with parents pushing strollers. Other residents feared that if bike lanes were expanded throughout the city that would mean tearing up people’s lawns and using eminent domain to seize private property. In the end, the council tried to make both sides happy. Originally, former committee members opted to remove bike lane recommendations and narrow city right-of-ways in their changes to the 2009 land-use guidelines. But on Monday, councilors decided to keep bike lanes in the document

yard sizes affected by widening for bike lanes because these changes would be made when new homes are built. Still, it is possible that the city could install new lanes and widen streets when they regularly resurface existing roads or while installing new utilities or drainage. Councilors discussed several issues, such as emphasizing a need for more “empty-nester” homes in the city, encouraging public art without mandating any new projects, and whether one bike lane or two is better. In each instance, the council leaned toward leaving room in the language so issues can be handled on a case-bycase basis.

Miracle restaurant worth the wait Commentary by Pete Smith With the opening of Miracle Sushi and Modern Asian Cuisine restaurant at the Shops at Providence on Old Meridian Street across the street from Meijer, the city finally has NOW OPEN a restaurant it’s been searching for. Equal parts urban cool and uniquely Carmel, Miracle has combined the freshest sushi available with a distinctive menu of modern Asian entrees to create a one-of-a-kind restaurant that only a local owner could. And its location on Old Meridian Street provides ample parking without losing the feel of being a big-city destination. When the Hwang family, owners of the Fishers Korean restaurant E. Miracle, announced they were closing their restaurant on Allisonville Road, they said they hoped to have a new Carmel restaurant open in early 2014. “So many of our customers drove over here from Carmel,” said Sean Hwang at the time. “We just thought we would bring our restaurant to them.” It took a little bit longer to build out, but it was worth the wait. Decorated with a tasteful blue-gray and black décor, the restaurant features a full bar highlighted by a varied wine and sake selection and a series of custom martinis – but it’s the sushi bar that has early customers raving. That’s because Miracle’s fish is sashimi-grade and never frozen. It’s flown in several times a week and packed in dry ice to make sure it’s of the highest quality. “I can go to the sushi bar or go in the kitchen and eat the fish right there – that’s how fresh it is,” Hwang said. Miracle alternates menus between lunch and dinner, with lunch costing between $10-$20 and dinner averaging $20-$30 per person, Hwang estimated. But it’s the uniqueness of the menu that really stands out. And when considering the alternating specials, it’s possible to eat here for months and never try the same meal twice. Where else would you find mung bean kimchi pancakes, crispy roasted quail or handmade

dumplings that combine jasmine rice, sausage, chive yogurt sauce and golden raisin chutney all on one menu? And who could resist a banana spring roll, ginger chocolate ganache and red chili mango sorbet on streusel for desert. “I wanted to bring the food to the next level,” said the 29-year-old Hwang, who said he wants his restaurant to define what modern Asian cuisine means. “We tried to offer something that no one has ever done before but that won’t scare people away.” With that in mind, Miracle also offers burgers, ribs and salads that can appeal to people more suited to American fare. “Our whole menu has been designed by a chef. Everything is great,” Hwang said. “It just depends on what people like to eat.” And even the music stands out and creates a perfect ambiance. It’s never stale because a host at the restaurant updates it nightly. “His dream is to be a producer,” Hwang said with a smile. He and his family clearly put a lot of time into the restaurant – it’s no miracle. So why the name? “Because that’s the way the food tastes,” Sean Hwang said.

International piano competition takes center stage in Carmel By Dawn Pearson • news@currentincarmel.com More than 90 young pianists, ranging in age from 5 to 19 and representing five nations, will be tickling the ivories in the Carmel music Debut International Piano Competition from June 19 through June 21. The event will be hosted by the International Talent Academy, a nonprofit performing arts school. Young contestants will gather at the Tarkington Theatre in the Center for the Performing Arts as musical representatives from Kyrgyzstan, Israel, Japan and South Korea, along with U.S. musicians from Komarova seven states compete against each other for scholarship prizes. This multi-cultural competition is a reverie for ITA’s executive director Tatyana Komarova. “It was my big dream from the very beginning to run a competition of this caliber,” she said. “One of the goals of our academy is to raise the level of performing arts to world-class standards by giving opportunities to young children to enter a challenging world of performance, helping them discover their talents and reaching their fullest potential.” But Komarova couldn’t do this by herself. When her colleague, Irina Gorin, came to her with the idea to organize their own International

Carmel High School senior Ari Brown, 17, said he thinks competition brings his playing to a higher level. (Submitted photo)

Piano Competition, Komarova was excited and thrilled for the opportunity and the challenge. “I hope this competition, in addition to all the excitement and prizes, will be a great learning experience for all participants,” she said. Carmel High School senior Ari Brown, 17, has been playing piano for more than eight years, and during that time he has developed a real passion and love of competition. He said he’s excited because now he can compete with international superstars right in his own backyard. “I love piano because I love music as a creative outlet. I also love piano because it is naturally a solo instrument and can create both harmony and melody,” Brown said. “Competition motivates me to work very hard on my pieces

and as a result I rapidly progress to new levels of music making.” Brown’s favorite piece to play is the “Ondine” part of “Gaspard de la Nuit” by Maurice Ravel, but listeners will have to wait to see if he performs this in the competition. Twelve-year-old music prodigy Chendi Liu will start seventh grade this fall, but she said she ready for the competition. “I think my favorite aspect of this piano competition will be playing two pieces that I love and have a chance to perform them twice,” Liu said. “I think that the Tarkington Stage is beautiful, and it will be such a cool experience to play there.” Liu began playing piano seven years ago when she was just 5 years old, and she knows that success has to be earned.

“My favorite thing about playing piano is when I perform a piece, because that is when all the hard work pays off,” she said. “It is a motivation to keep on playing even when things are rough.” Her favorite piece to play is Chopin’s Nocturne No. 20 in C-sharp minor. On the final day of the contest, 36 finalists will compete for placement within six age categories. A scholarship award ceremony and a Winners Concert with the prodigies will conclude the event. All aspects of the competition, including the scholarships, have been sponsored by local businesses and generous patrons of the arts. “The Carmel Debut International Piano Competition is poised to become a significant source of musical education, while promoting and expanding the arts in central Indiana,” Komarova said. “We would like to thank all of our supporters for their help and donations. Many families, community people, businessmen brought donations in the first month of the fundraising.” Their main sponsors are the City of Carmel, Piano Solutions, Andy Miller, IndyAutoMan, Pioneer Realty and the Glick Foundation. Tickets for the competition and the Winners Concert may be purchased at www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org. Tickets start at $15.

Businesses seek improved parking By Adam Aasen • adam@youarecurrent.com Warm summer days will bring flocks of people to the Carmel Arts & Design District, making it more difficult for people to find planning that ideal parking spot. But local business owners and politicians say there isn’t a lack of parking in Carmel’s historic downtown. It’s just that people aren’t aware of the options. “Something needs to be done,” said Jason Peek, owner of the Main Street Barber Shop. “I feel like people don’t know enough about it, and even though the city has put some stuff, people still ask me where they can park, and I say, ‘Well, there’s two hundred spots at this garage right here,’ and they say, ‘I had no idea.’ We probably need to get out to the public better.” This year, the Carmel Redevelopment Commission spent more than $300,000 to maintain the parking garage at Sofia Square, which is available to residents and the general public. The Arts & Design District Business Association of Carmel had a meeting to discuss a comprehensive parking plan for the area. Business owners suggested increased visible signage for parking and perhaps shortening Main Street’s two-hour parking limit to only a half hour, to help customers who want to run in and out for transactional business such as picking up a to-go order from a restaurant. Joe Lazzarra, owner of Joe’s Butcher Shop,

said people don’t always walk to park in the garage if they are just going to make a quick stop at a business. He said if more long-term parkers used the garage, it could free up spots along Main Street. Mayor Jim Brainard pointed out that it’s not just the Sofia Square parking garage that people need to be aware of, but there’s free parking at the Lions Club and the Children’s Gallery. City Councilor Ron Carter agrees that there is plenty of parking, pointing out that the garage at the Indiana Design Center is one of the city’s best kept secrets. “Of course, my wife told me, ‘Don’t be telling everyone about that. That’s our secret place to park,’” he said. On the web – Visit www.currentincarmel.com to view a map of all the available areas with free public parking in downtown Carmel.

‘We all felt like champions’ By Amanda Foust • news@currentincarmel.com Carmel Middle School eighth-grader Alekhya Ankaraju recently earned the right to represent Carmel schools at the Naeducation tional Spelling Bee during the final week of May. Her spelling skills brought her all the way to the fifth round of the spelling bee’s semifinals before being knocked out trying to spell the word “miniaceous.” “Going to (Washington) D.C. for the first time was a really neat experience. The moment we made it to the airport and hotel we thought it was so nice, organized and ran smoothly,” Alekhya said. “We all felt like champions.” Growing up, her love for reading and writing soon revealed the talent she had for spelling. “I realized (spelling) actually sticks in my head and maybe I can further expand this little skill,” Alekhya said. Her journey started out with participating in the local spelling bee, progressed to regionals, and then she then received the honor of going to Washington D.C. to compete in the national competition. But along the way she received lots of help and support in training from her father, Krishna Ankaraju, and Carmel teacher Mary Service, who was instrumental in helping her to prepare. “They gave us this huge 3- to 4-inch dictionary and told us to study out of that. They gave us

word lists, and I mastered those words,” Alekhya said. “I looked at past misspelled words in past spelling bees to try to aid me and also looked at spelling words in the event that I got a word I didn’t know so I would know how to approach it.” She said one thing she would do differently is to have prepared better for semifinals. She did not expect to make it as far as she did. “I think I would have widened my range so it could have prepared me better for the words they gave me in semifinals and maybe even finals,” Alekhya said. Overall, she had a memorable experience. And for anyone interested in pursuing the same goal, she would advise students to spend a lot of time studying, practicing and believing they can excel further than they imagined.

On May 31, the Indiana Democratic Party officially nominated candidates for the three statewide offices that will be up for politics election in November. In addition to Carmel resident Mike Claytor who is the Democratic candidate for Auditor, Fishers resident Mike Boland was selected to run State Treasurer. It’s a rare feat for two Democratic candidates to emerge from the Republican stronghold of Hamilton County. Boland moved from Illinois to Fishers in 2012 to be near his children and grandchildren after retirement, but has owned property in the area since 2007. He had a 30-year career in education and was also involved in politics in Illinois on many levels including serving 16 years in the Illinois House of Representatives. During that tenure he served as the chairman of several committees including the financial institutions committee during which he said he gained lots of knowledge that gives him the qualifications necessary to be State Treasurer. “I had been reading the paper and have been sort of astounded at a lot of the policies of Republicans here, so I agreed to do it,” Boland said. He cites the college savings program as one

area that needs more publicity and focus. He also believes that the state should link depositing state funds in state institutions to those institutions offering lower interest rates for students and entrepreneurs. I believe there’s some problems here in Indiana just as there are in any state. One is the problem of getting good paying jobs. Indiana now has become the number one state in growth of poverty level jobs and so I see using the power of the state treasurer’s office, we can actually make a dent in those problems,” he said.

When Carmel Tattoo Ink opened in the Arts & Design District about four years ago, some people said, “Can you believe now open Carmel has a tattoo shop in its downtown?” Now, a second tattoo shop has opened less than a mile away. Jay Schuler left his job as a tattoo artist at Carmel Tattoo Ink to open his own business with longtime friend Neil Foster. They each have more than 25 years of experience creating tattoos. Their shop is called Indiana Tattoo Company and it opened June 7 at 1077 S. Range Line Road in the Shoshone Place shopping center. Schuler was new to Carmel when he started at his former employer. But he said he came to love the area and that he decided to stay because he built up a strong clientele base. Once he saved enough money, he decided to pursue his dream of opening his own place. “It’s just time,” he said. “When you’ve been tattooing as long as me, you don’t need for work

Wind Symphony to play gazebo

By Jessica Fox • jessica@currentincarmel.com

Saturday, June 7th Blair Clark

Saturday, June 21st The Slammer Jazz Trio

Have you ever wanted to find a way to get your kids or grandkids interested in classical music? The Indiana Wind Symphony’s free outdoor concert June 20 at the Carmel City Hall music Gazebo might be the perfect chance. The Symphony will partner with guest soloist Ken Knowles to performed selections from Broadway’s popular “Wicked” musical, along with marches from John Philip Sousa and Karl King and a few new pieces as well. “It’s a wonderful summer evening concert. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic. You can even bring the dog,” said Charles Conrad, the Indiana Wind Symphony’s music director. Tenor soloist Ken Knowles will sing the classic “Danny Boy” and “Nessun Dorma” from the opera Turandot. “Anytime I get to sing ‘Nessun Dorma’ it’s a real treat, and ‘Danny Boy’ is so emotional … It’s a real crowd pleaser,” Knowles said. Knowles occasionally has been invited to perform solos with the symphony, but this is still a unique occasion that listeners won’t want to miss. “I love singing with the symphony. Charlie is a great conductor, and I’m honored to be on the program,” Knowles said. Recently retired Carmel High School choral director Ann Conrad had hoped to perform at the concert as well, but she had to back out because of medical reasons.

Knowles formerly taught at Carmel High School, too. But he taught English. Conrad did say that she believes there will be a little something for everyone at the event. “It’s an interesting place for kids even if they are not into it … It’s a great place to hear a variety of music – some former and some new,” Conrad said. The symphony is in its 14th season of performing as Indiana’s concert band. The 80-piece band includes professional musicians, music educators and musicians working in a variety of other jobs. Admission to this performance is free and listeners should feel free to bring their own food, blankets and chairs.

Legendary Carmel coach inducted into Indiana Football Hall of Fame By Gary Boskovich • news@currentincarmel.com

Since arriving at its current location in 1958, Carmel’s high school football team is typically ranked as one of the top programs in the state. And its ongoing success can sports be traced back to Dick Nyers, who coached that 1958 team to a 5-5 record. That squad consisted of a mere 29 players. Nyers would continue coaching at Carmel until 1967, compiling an overall record of 69–24–5. But his winning percentage might not be his most lasting accomplishment. That likely belongs to his work helping to found the Carmel Dads’ Club during the 1958–59 season. The Dad’s Club has grown to become one of the best feeder systems in the state - and not only for football, but for all Carmel sports. . For all those reasons and more Dick Nyers was inducted into the Indiana Football Hall of Fame June 12. Nyers attended Indiana Central College - now the University of Indianapolis - and participated in football, basketball and baseball all 4 years and track for 2 years. There he earned 14 letters in all – feat unequalled in the history of the university since that time. In addition, he was honored in 1954 for basketball being among the 10 best players in NCAA District 4 by Look Magazine. He joined the likes of other honorees which included Bevo Francis, Don Schlundt and Bobby “Slick” Leonard. After graduating from Indiana Central, Nyers was signed by the Baltimore Colts of the fledgling National Football League. “Playing with the Baltimore Colts for two years for a man my size is a great accomplishment,” he said. And there’s a little known fact that puts Nyers in the NFL history book - as a running back he caught the first touchdown pass ever thrown by legendary Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas. Once his playing days ended and when he was in need of work, Nyers turned to coaching. Carmel High School provided Nyers with his first coaching opportunity when he was just 23

years old. And he was quickly hooked. “I still follow Carmel in every sport that they play and still remain in touch with kids that played for me,” he said. One former player Nyers stays connected with is Kendrick “Tad” Sinnock who played quarterback for him the first two years he coached at Carmel. They golf together regularly during the summer and remain good friends. “He really upgraded the program tremendously and he brought the Baltimore Colts offense with him…really a step up (from) where we had been,” Sinnock said. Nyers not only coached football at Carmel, he taught there as well. And to demonstrate his popularity as a teacher, Sinnock recalls the story of what happened when Nyers announced his engagement. “All the girls in the junior class wore black the next day,” Sinnock said. “They were all sad he decided to marry somebody.” The mourning over his being taken “out of circulation” was widespread. Nyers said, “Beyond a doubt, Carmel was probably my greatest success, and it was one that I truly loved.”

Little Star Center student gives a gift from the heart By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com

Hudson Miles is a 9-year-old boy from Fishers who recently read in his Scholastic Newsletter about a boy his age fundraiser who had donated stuffed animals to his local fire department because he had read that kids being transported by ambulance are often very afraid. The idea was that the stuffed animals would give them comfort. Hudson told his mom that he wanted to do that, too. So the family posted a notice on its Facebook page and spread the word that if people would just donate one dollar, they would go to the dollar store and buy a stuffed animal. The family was overwhelmed when the response to the plea was $160 in donations. Hudson and his family bought 160 stuffed animals and personally delivered them to the Fishers Fire Dept. on May 23. It’s a sweet story even if it ended there. But it doesn’t, because Hudson has Asperger Syndrome. This kind of thoughtful, concerned act, according to Hudson’s mother, Angie Miles, is not typical of a child with Asperger’s. “A hallmark of Asperger’s is that it is a social disease and it inhibits them from being able to consider other people’s feelings. That’s the number one marker of the condition,” she said. Hudson is considered moderately affected by the disorder, his mother said and adds, “It’s

Really for any child, it’s a big deal to be selfless and do selfless things, but for an Asperger’s child it’s just especially great,” she said. The Fishers Fire Dept. was so moved by the act that it sent out a press release to media outlets in the Indianapolis area saying “The Fishers Department of Fire and Emergency Services thinks this is an amazing boy with an amazing heart for others, and celebrates that Hudson 9-year-old Hudson Miles with the stuffed animals he donated to the was able to define Asperger’s Fishers Fire Department. rather than to be defined by it.

Artist Donna Carr will have a solo show at ArtSplash in July and will exhibit her Olympic artwork from Sochi. (Submitted photos)

ArtSplash painter traveled all the way to Sochi, Russia, to find motivational stories in the world of sports By Adam Aasen • adam@youarecurrent.com Every painting tells a story. Whether it’s a warrior heading into battle or a mother holding a child, people stare cover story for long periods of time, discussing what the tale might be behind those brushstrokes. The world of sports is one area full of stories. And Donna Carr, a local painter at ArtSplash Gallery, watches athletes and sees stories worthy of paintings. A desperate boxer – sweaty and bruised – stares down his enemy. A focused football player pushes his way through his opponent, eyes locked onto victory. There’s determination, victory, loss, pride, joy, majesty. Everything a painter needs to tell a story. “There is so much emotion,” she said. “I have to have a passion about an image and that’s when I do my best painting. When I see their passion and emotion, it makes me passionate.”

‘Football was kind of my passion’

Carr is working on a series of portraits depicting athletes in action. She recently returned from Russia where she took photographs of Winter Olympic athletes in Sochi. Now she’s turning her photos into watercolor and oil paintings. She said she plans to turn it into an exhibit at ArtSplash, but she’s already getting quite some demand for her sports paintings. One her paintings of Russian Olympic athlete Viktor Ahn is going to be on display at the new Hoosier

Salon gallery and will be published in a Russian sports magazine. Sports have always been a passion of Carr’s. Growing up in northern Ohio, her father was obsessed with football. “My father was a real avid football fan, and I remember he’d have a console TV with one football game and a portable TV with another game and other games on two different radios,” she said. “Football was kind of my passion growing up.”

Finding other subjects in Sochi

Her husband, Gary Roberts, is dean emeritus of the Robert H. McKinney School of Law at IUPUI and a longtime expert in sports law. He’s a former attorney for the NFL and was interviewed on CNN recently about the Donald Sterling NBA controversy. Roberts was invited to be part of the Court of Arbitration for Sport ad hoc Division, which settled all legal disputes related to the Olympics. So Carr traveled with her husband to Sochi where she found plenty of artistic inspiration. She took photos of the Russian skater and hockey players. She got some great shots of Lolo Jones and the bobsled team. She even took photos of Nick Goepper, the Olympic skier from Indiana. She also was emotionally moved by the stray dogs wandering the streets of Sochi, which might become a painting as well. One dog in particular she caught her fascination. He was nicknamed “Crow” because he would beg for food from strangers. He had a

scar on his face that might have been the result of a street fight with another dog. Carr said it’s another example of how you can find stories in just about anything.

‘I always make changes’

This isn’t her first foray into artwork about sports. She had a painting of former Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday on display during a special exhibit when Indianapolis hosted the Super Bowl. Parents of athletes have also commissioned her to do portraits of their kids, such as a teenage hockey player. And she has completed several paintings of race horses. With each project, she starts off with photography for inspiration, but she isn’t afraid to add her own artistic touch. “Even when I stay realistic in the portrait, I always make changes,” she said. “I change tones. I add shadows. I take out other body parts.” When she worked on the Jeff Saturday portrait, there were bodies lying on the ground and lots of background action that she felt, “took away from him,” so she made the changes. Carr is plugging away to finish her Olympic series, but with her hundreds of photographs to browse through, she said it might take her a while. She is hoping to perhaps mix some of her completed Olympic images with her existing sports portraits to create a fun display soon at the ArtSplash Gallery, located on West Main Street in the Carmel Arts & Design District.

More sense than dollars

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Dave Brat, the Tea Party challenger to Virginia GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, won the primary last Tuesday night in what irrefutably was a major upset. Brat took aim at Cantor’s support of immigration legislation that would give amnesty to those that entered the United States illegally. There are mixed reports out there, but Cantor spent well more than $1 million dollars on his campaign (and had more in reserve), while Brat spent in the neighborhood of just more than $100,000. This is the first time since 1899 that a sitting majority leader had lost an election  – and remember, this was the primary. Said Brat in a story posted on FoxNews. com: “If you go knocking door to door, you’ll know the American people think they’re in trouble. … It was a miracle.” Good to know there are some Republicans – and supporters – attempting to clean up the party. It’s also proof that a strong message means more than a brimming cache of cash. ••• The annual Encore Gala Weekend for our region’s Center for the Performing Arts is coming up June 20-21, and it should be quite an event for attendees. We’re helping to sponsor the two-night extravaganza, and, well, we’re extremely excited about it.

When encouragement is justified Commentary by Terry Anker The now defunct Indianapolis Athletic Club had a policy of posting the names of members who were unwilling or unable to pay their bills in a timely fashion in a prominent place on the wall of the clubhouse. Deadbeats or not, it would convince the errant fellows to pay up. And, it would offer some prurient thrill to the collected mass that would routinely peruse the list with each new month. Some names would be surprising and might indicate an unusual financial problem for them or their companies. Others were familiar in the fraternity of slow-payers. Either they traveled so much that their mail (and their attentions) were lagging far behind the expectation of the accounting department; or as was more often the case, they were habitual over-spenders, gladly charging today what they could not pay for tomorrow. It always struck me as a highly effective, if somewhat direct, way to keep receivables under control. There are many points on the sliding scale from failing to collect what we’re owed to

outright public humiliation of those who convert the property of others without fair payment. Some organizations send slow accounts to a collection agency promptly and without fanfare. Others, attempt to consider circumstance. Why is the payment late? Can we rely on eventual remuneration? But do we have a right to be indignant of folks who do not pay – at least not like we do? What right does the community at large have in keeping other people current? Should we be more compassionate or less? Can we judge the neighbor whose association dues are years behind yet still maintains a fleet of automotive toys? Can we criticize the unfulfilled pledge from the person in church with the Cadillac in the parking lot? When is a little public encouragement justified?

Well I just returned from my family’s annual pilgrimage to the best people-watching, and as it turns out, educational, amusehumor ment park in the Midwest, Kings Island. Luckily for your reading pleasure, it did not disappoint. We arrived about 30 minutes prior to the gates opening, leaving me more than enough time to apply sunscreen to my pasty-white ginger offspring and to count tattoos among fellow park-goers. Standing in one location, I easily identified 21 ink lovers in less than 60 seconds. We headed first to the Banshee, the new pipe coaster which claims to be the longest inverted one in the world. My youngest daughter sat out, not quite ready to submit her little body to blackout-inducing G-forces. Oh, how I wish I had volunteered to stay with her. Even with prophylactic naproxen coursing through my bloodstream, I got off the ride with a pounding headache, feeling dizzy and slightly nauseous. Assuming my mild concussion would eventually abate, I continued on to more brain-jarring rides until just after lunch, when I finally called it quits. Clearly too old for that nonsense, I transitioned to gentle log flumes and the ‘80s Flashback Show. Michael and Bruce on the same stage! The beauty of throwing in the towel that early of course is that I had hours to sit and judge fellow patrons while my family pressed on. The reoccurring themes? Obesity and immodest dress. Granted, Kings Island has a water park and the day was plenty hot, but if I never see a plus-size gal in a string bikini top riding the Racers again in my life, that’ll be one less traumatic moment to address in counseling. Even my 10-year-old asked why there were so many overweight people. As I sucked down a soft-serve cone, I explained about the Midwest weather and consequential lifestyle. Then over a pepperoni pizza, we discussed how you can be stuck indoors for six months but still be healthy. At Wendy’s on the way home, we decided we’d learned some valuable lessons about nutrition and ketchup. Our teenager’s cell phone lies somewhere underneath loop four of Diamondback, our older daughter left in tears because she just “wanted to ride one more ride,” our younger son is combating addiction after failing to win a life-size gorilla on the ring toss and I am suffering a mild wrist sprain from the Haunted House Shoot-Out. Overall, though, we can chalk up another successful Kings Island venture for the Wilson clan. Peace out.

From Rome to Fort Wayne Commentary by John Accetturo It was really strange going to Fort Wayne to attend the Republican State Convention after just spending several weeks in opinion Italy. The terrain was so flat on I-69 as my wife and I headed to Fort Wayne compared to the mountains and hillsides we experienced as we drove through Italy. This time I was an observer at the convention with my better half, Christine Accetturo, an elected delegate. There were 1,650 certified delegates at the convention but only 1,498 voted in the State Treasurer race that had three candidates – Wayne Seybold, Don Bates and Kelly Mitchell. You might be asking, “Well, what happened to the other 152 delegates?” They either did not show up or did not bother to vote. Unfortunately, some of the no-shows included elected officials from Carmel and Westfield. I won’t embarrass them by putting their names in this article, but they know who they are. The no-shows subverted others who were willing to serve. I really don’t know their reasons for not showing after being elected to attend, but shame on them. The convention’s two main actions included the approval of the Republican State Platform and the nomination of the candidate for State Treasurer, which was a contested race. Proposed changes to the platform to remove the sentence saying marriage is between and a man and woman were defeated by a significant majority.

The Treasurer’s race went three ballots with the underdog candidate getting the nomination on the third ballot. The breakdown was the Tea Party supported Don Bates, social conservatives supported Kelly Mitchell and party regulars wanted Wayne Seybold. In the end, the Tea Party joined in with the social conservatives in the third ballot to give Mitchell the nod after the low-vote-getter Don Bates had been dropped from the ballot. I believe the nomination of Mitchell shows the party establishment of the Indiana Republican Party is not as strong as it used to be. So it now looks like the Indiana Republican party has three factions: the Tea Party, social conservatives and the party establishment. From what I saw at the convention, party delegates have become more conservative than ever, so the mainstream party people will need to work with all sides to get Republican candidates elected. I see the same here in Hamilton County where there have been more challenges to party regulars than ever. I believe it is a bad idea to oppose candidates within the party just because of their affiliation in one segment or the other. Candidates need to be evaluated based on their qualifications, character and their beliefs, not which faction they fit into.

READERS’ VIEWS Stop sign needed at 126th Street intersection Editor, A few weeks ago I had the same thought about the 3-way stop at 126th Street and Auman Drive, but then I really started to think about it. If my recollection serves me right, the Keystone project’s main goal was to help the flow of traffic on Keystone while providing safe crossing at the intersections. They were not put in to turn every intersecting street into a residential expressway. Don’t forget, the original INDOT plan was to widen Keystone Parkway and add more turning lanes and traffic signals. Be happy that didn’t happen. Zero to 50+ (30 is the posted speed limit) from Auman Drive to the 126th Street and Keystone roundabout is not uncommon with the stop sign. If the stop sign were to be removed,

the unimpeded traffic would pose a much bigger safety concern – not only to people entering from Auman but also the cars trying to get out of the neighborhood on the north side of 126th Street. If cars are blocking the intersection of 126th Street and Range Line Road (which is illegal in most areas) then the Carmel Police Department needs to step up and hand out some tickets. To save fuel, fumes and frustration of a few motorists (who odds are just passing through at rush hour) is hardly worth the thought of a traffic signal in a residential area. I would rather have the stop sign stay and the frustrated rush hour drivers take a different route.   George Seat, 46033

Changes needed at 126th Street intersection Editor, Robert Auscherman (June 10, Current in Carmel) is correct about the huge waste of time every morning and afternoon at this location. A few months ago I was rightfully stopped for doing a “rolling stop” by a local police officer at this location. He was extremely courteous, and

I was grateful to get a warning instead of fine and points, but I have paid attention there since and almost no one but me comes to a full stop. Surely a pressure-triggered stop to allow the few cars joining 126th Street from Auman Drive is the correct way to handle this. Pat Lovett, 46033

THIS WEEK Dick Gregory on stage – Comedian Richard Claxton “Dick” Gregory has lived a life far from ordinary. He is listed on Comedy CARMEL Central’s Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All-Time, and in the 1960s helped bridge African-American comedy to Caucasian audiences with much success. Dick Gregory began performing comedy while in the U.S. Army in the mid 1950s. Through the use of irony and satire, he held up a lens to American society and its stereotypes, using comedy and social action to address injustice and discrimination in American society. A performance in 1961 at the Chicago Playboy Club launched his national reputation; within a year, he played to sold-out audiences in nightclubs and became a popular television comedian.

Symphony on the Prairie returns with WWI medley

By Joseph Knoop • joseph@currentincarmel.com The annual patriotic program “keynote address” for Symphony on the Prairie will get an added musical boost this year from music songs of the First World War, which started 100 years ago. Something else special about the 2014 “StarSpangled Symphony” – the series’ most popular weekend – is that The World War I Medley, performed by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra under the baton of assistant conductor David Glover, will feature harmonica player Michael Runyan in his own arrangements of four doughboy favorites. Runyan’s performance also will be his last as a symphony employee. He’ll retire after 28 years of service in the orchestra’s library at the end of August. His interest in the harmonRunyan ica goes back decades, and wanting to exploit his ability as a professional soloist with the orchestra is part of his motivation for retiring at age 61. There’s another musical reason, too. “Over the years, I’ve been writing compositions and arrangements, and I haven’t had the time to put them into circulation in the wider markets,” Runyan said. “It just makes sense. It’s intellectual property that needs to be monetized, and I think it’s stuff people would love.”

A local example is no further away than the concerts of July 3-5, with longtime Symphony on the Prairie maestro Alfred Savia on the podium. The conductor and symphony artistic administrator Zack French strategized over a World War I medley, and, assisted by Runyan, came up with “Over There,” “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary,” “Keep the Home Fires Burning,” and “Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag.” Runyan’s kit bag consists of a variety of harmonicas, ranging from low to high, and they will be drawn upon in the program’s second half. That will include his role model Richard Hayman’s arrangement of “Home on the Range,” a Hayman-Runyan version of “Shenandoah,” and a new Runyan arrangement of Charlie McCoy’s “New River Gorge.” As the symphony’s head librarian, Runyan’s main responsibility has been to make sure he and his staff get the right music on the right stand at the right time. And advances in computer technology in the course of the past three decades have made his job somewhat easier when it comes to finding materials conductors want to perform. Still, physical copies of the music often have to be rented and performance rights always secured. “Over the years I’ve helped the professional orchestra world with databases to track their performances,” Runyan said, which has made orchestral libraries more efficient in generating information vital to their organizations’ history:

What was performed when, in what setting, in what edition? There are more burdensome chores, too. When orchestral parts are borrowed, how often have Runyan and his staff had to deal with messy parts, worn by handling and excessive, unerased markings? “From my first day to my last,” Runyan replied with a sigh. “It’s the nature of the beast. Sometimes it’s like borrowing a used handkerchief.” Being with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra from the inception in 1986 of its popular Yuletide Celebration spurred Runyan’s creativity. The later arrival of Jack Everly as principal pops conductor stretched the librarian-musician even further. “Jack’s approach is to make a musical event out of (a pops concert), make a dramatic arc to it,” Runyan said. “Timing, the era of the pieces, the works – it’s just entertaining all the way through. I think it’s a blessing that I was here to be a part of that. It’s really been an honor.” Symphony on the Prairie • Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra presents 11 weekends of concerts • Conner Prairie in Fishers • 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays (exceptions: “Star-Spangled Symphony” also on July 3; The Hit Men Aug. 28 instead of Aug. 30; Preservation Hall Jazz Band Aug. 31 instead of Aug. 29) • Tickets start at $24 for adults and $12 for children under 12 • For more information call 639-4300 or visit www.indianapolissymphony.org.

Glimpse of history at Carnegie Library 100th Anniversary Celebration On June 9 and 10, guests of the Carnegie Library 100th Anniversary Celebration heard history re-enactor, Jeffrey Smith, in the role of Andrew Carnegie, discuss how to become a millionaire. Smith portrayed Carnegie in a polished performance honed from 20 years of playing historical characters. He is a professor of geography and history at Lindenwood University in St. Louis, and he holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Akron. His portrayals of historical characters also include P.T. Barnum, William Clark and George Washington. The celebration was held at Woody’s Library Restaurant at 40 E. Main St., the former site of the Carmel Clay Library. Historical artifacts and period costumes were on view as barbershop quartet Coalition entertained. Because the library was built in 1914, Assistant Library Director Nancy Newport compiled a list of facts relating to that time period. The information was printed on paper fans and given to guests at the door. A few interesting local, national and worldwide historical facts about the state of the world in 1914 include: The library was built in 1914 at a cost of $11,000, equivalent to $23 million today. The population of Carmel was reported as 626 persons compared to more than 83,000 today. The average price of a house in 1914 was $6,156; the price of a car was $550. Average annual wages were $577. 1914 was a seminal year in history in many ways. Henry Ford introduced the assembly line for Model T Fords and changed the automotive world forever. World War I began when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. The Panama Canal opened and the U.S. Post Office used its first car to deliver mail. “Penrod,” by Indiana writer Booth Tarkington, and “The Inside of the Cup,” by Winston Churchill, were best-selling books. Among the top-10 songs were, “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary” and “By the Beautiful Sea.” Among the many attending, were Carmel residents Alison Brown, Peggy Rogers, Ginny Turpening, and June and John Clair. Library Foundation Director Ruth Nisenshal and Wendy Phillips, the director of Carmel Clay Public Library, greeted guests. Tonya Burton is the Current’s social scene columnist.

Main Street Productions of Westfield will be staging “The Diary of Anne Frank” for the next two weekends – but with a twist. In this gripping new adaptatheatre tion by Wendy Kesselman of the original stage play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank - as well as survivor accounts - are interwoven to create an impassioned story of the lives of people persecuted under Nazi rule. “We kept this version as pure as possible,” said director Kristin Wilson. “And everything is accurate to its time. There are pages and speeches from Anne’s diary that come directly from the book and are unedited.” The cast, which ranges from newcomers to seasoned veterans, has worked hard to maintain the historical accuracy and raw emotion of the original play. “I’ve read the diary several times, and it’s something I’ve always been fascinated by,” said Maggie Williams, who will star as Anne Frank. “It’s relatable because she is just an ordinary girl thrown into her situation.” Williams has been involved with theatre for 10 years. However, adapting to this role has been different from any of her previous roles. “This is the first time I’ve played someone who

isn’t a fictional character,” she said. “There is more pressure trying to do a real person justice, but it’s been a good challenge.” Much like Anne Frank’s family bonds throughout the play, the cast has developed a family-like atmosphere during rehearsals. “Whenever you put on a show in an intimate space and everyone is on stage, you tend to get close and it is a very good bonding experience,” Williams said. “The Diary of Anne Frank” • 7:30 p.m. June 20, 21, 27 and 28 and 2:30 p.m. June 22 and 29 • Westfield Playhouse, 1836 W.

The Book of Mormon is coming to the Old National Centre June 17-22 and, while the show is almost sold out, you still have theatre a chance at tickets through a lottery. The musical – winner of nine Tony Awards – will make a limited number of tickets available with a pre-show lottery. Entries will be accepted at the box office starting two and a half hours before each performance. Names of winners will be drawn two hours before the show for the tickets – priced at $25. The Book of Mormon – which opened in 2011 – has been called one of the “filthiest” and “most offensive” shows on Broadway. Created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker – known for their animated TV show South Park – is the story of two young missionaries who go to Uganda to try to convert residents to the Mormon religion. “My love for musicals comes from Rogers and Hammerstein and all the classics on VHS and the local community theatre,” Parker said. “I wanted something happy and optimistic and structured in that way and just in the same way they would do it about people living in Oklahoma or Chinese Americans in San Francisco or people in the South Pacific. It was like, this is our theme and this was our group of people and it really was let’s try and make a cool, traditional musical first and then the Mormon thing was sort of this ‘Oh,

here’s the one – let’s do it about this.’” “That aesthetic and that choice the church makes to make that kind of their public image seems to just fit with musical theatre,” Stone said. “There’s just something about their attitude that just makes it look like they’re about to burst into song.” The Book of Mormon • June 17 through June 22 • Old National Centre • 502 N.

Commentary by Joel Harris

One of the most powerful estate planning tools is the “stretch IRA,” which is a Traditional IRA or Roth IRA designed to finance allow an account owner’s beneficiaries the ability to continue tax-deferred or tax-free growth during one or more generations after the death of the original account holder. Simply put, a stretch IRA can potentially have a profound effect for multiple family members if a huge wave of wealth is transferred during the coming years. The first step in building a sound wealth transfer strategy is to determine to whom you’d like to leave your IRA assets. Your beneficiaries might include your spouse, children, grandchildren, a trust, a friend or neighbor, a charity or a combination of all of these. It is imperative to do beneficiary reviews because your wishes might change. If your spouse is designated as the beneficiary of your Traditional IRA, they have a unique advantage in that they may choose to roll the remaining account balance over to his or her own Traditional IRA. This is powerful because the spouse has the ability to make additional contributions to the IRA, name his or her own beneficiaries; and most importantly, wait until he or she is 70½ before starting required minimum distributions. This allows a spouse the ability to take advantage of the tax-deferred growth and not immediately take distributions, which count as ordinary income. On the other hand, a non-spouse beneficiary of a Traditional IRA must begin taking RMDs (required minimum distributions) by Dec. 31 of the year following the death of the original account owner. This is where the “stretch” features really come into play for a non-spouse beneficiary. Instead of RMDs being calculated by the original account holder’s age, the RMDs will be based on the beneficiary’s life expectancy factor as defined by the IRS’s “single life expectancy” table. Here’s a simple example to illustrate how the stretch IRA strategy works for a non-spouse beneficiary of a Traditional IRA.

Harry is age 79, and has a Traditional IRA worth $400,000. Since Harry is older than 70½, he’s required to take RMDs based on his life expectancy. Based on his age, he will be required to withdraw at least $20,512 ($400,000 divided by 19.5), and it will be taxed as ordinary income. Then Harry dies and names Suzy, his daughter, the beneficiary of his Traditional IRA. Suzy opens an inherited IRA and transfers the assets into the account. Suzy is 47 years old when she inherits her father’s account. Instead of RMDs being calculated on Harry’s age, the new RMDs will be calculated based on Suzy’s age. Because Suzy must take an RMD by Dec. 31 of the year following her father’s death, she will need to start taking withdrawals at age 48. At age 48, the dividing factor in the single life table for inherited IRAs is 36, so Suzy’s RMD on a $400,000 inherited IRA is $11,111 the first year, which is far less than what her father would have been required to withdraw. It is important to note that this required distribution will be taxed as ordinary income for Suzy. The RMDs will grow for Suzy every year, but as you can see, this strategy allows her to keep more money deferred from taxes, which can potentially have a profound effect on the compounding effect of her inheritance during her lifetime. In this column, I only primarily focused on the inheritance of a Traditional IRA. If you’re the lucky beneficiary of a Roth IRA, some different rules apply. A stretch IRA can be one of the most powerful estate tools to leave a lasting legacy for future generations. Secondly, they can lessen the effect of ordinary income tax liability for beneficiaries because they can stretch the required distributions over a longer period of time. As 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day in this great country, educating yourself on the most efficient ways to preserve and transfer your hard earned money is vitally important.

Decorating under the sun - try to imagine space as a room without windows Commentary by Vicky Earley With the brutal winter just a bitter memory, the long, lazy days of summer are just a few calendar days away. This decorating means it is officially time to maneuver the outdoor furniture to its righteous position of importance and start basking in this well-deserved change of weather. Just the thought of spending time in the company of blue skies and the warmth of summer days provides the inspiration to plan an outdoor space that is a sensational extension of your home. I think my favorite approach is to take a space and treat it as if it were a room without walls. A tall hedge or fencing can create a backdrop to this inviting retreat while an outdoor sectional or sofa will anchor it. Fabrics for outdoor furnishings rival the couture fabrics once available only as interior fabric.

The outdoor room can now be a reflection of a sophisticated interior. If you have any interior tables that are on their way out anyway, consider mixing them into your exterior décor! They will endure at least one summer season. Outdoor lighting is now a focal feature and eons away from the simple brass fixture that has always hung next to the front door of a home. This element is probably the most exciting change in outdoor decor. Chandeliers are available for outdoor room use, in a variety of styles and finishes and just as beautiful as the indoor variety. If you have a covered porch or patio consider using one of these sophisticated options over your outdoor dining table. If that is not an option, consider taking an unwanted brass colored chandelier that is just languishing in storage and spray painting it a vibrant color. Remove the electrical components and use

candles instead of light bulbs. You now have oneof-a-kind lighting for your exterior room. For special occasions, consider colorful paper lanterns that are illuminated with strings of lights. This won’t last the season but an event will be that much more memorable with such a creative form of lighting. Repurposing interior items such as tea pots or decorative urn as planters creates an innovative exterior surrounding, as well. Outdoor space is the perfect place to relax with your favorite decorating magazine. By creating an outdoor room, it is certain that you will lose yourself in the ambiance that is a cooperative venture between you and Mother Nature.

Indiana Primetime Sports is getting back to the basics by offering a new program called Primetime Square 1. The curfundraiser riculum is designed specifically for young children to promote self-confidence over competition. “Primetime’s goal is development versus intense competition,” said director Stephanie Kleiner, whose background is in elementary education. Primetime Square 1 offers programs for kids 4 to 8 years old that focus on developing physical abilities, teamwork and personal growth in order to give them the confidence to try more than one sport. “Kids fall into a trap,” Kleiner said. “They may be really good at soccer and want to try softball but literally don’t know how to use their bodies to throw a ball or know what muscles are even used for that.” The program focuses on everything from sports vocabulary to foot-work to how to work with a partner. Kleiner said it’s important because most kids don’t know how to actually work together as a team at that young age. “(Children) are really set to be molded at young ages, so from an educator’s perspective and a coach’s perspective you want to hone in on the skills that you do see in each child and develop those skills.”

Indiana Primetime Sports offers summer camps at University High School. (Submitted photo)

Kleiner said her staff have all taught in the classroom work with kids beyond athletic prowess to bring out their personal best. “Maybe they are a really great team player. Maybe they know how to help other people when they are down. Maybe they are somebody who is trying to focus on not necessarily every single thing you do on the field but how you relate to your teammates off the field as well that makes you part of the team,” she said. Primetime has about 30 kids training programs and leagues for a variety of sports including baseball, basketball, football and soccer. Travel sports are limited to local competition. Kleiner played softball at the collegiate level and on the Junior Olympics team. She will personally lead the new 8U softball program at Primetime which will begin this fall. Primetime is also accepting enrollment in several instructional camps this summer held at University High School. For more information visit www.indianaprimetimesports.com.

The Palace of Westminster (Photo by Don Knebel)

Westminster’s home of traditions Commentary by Don Knebel The Palace of Westminster, lying along the west bank of the River Thames, is the official name of the building housing England’s ParliaTravel ment. Although most of the eightacre complex was built in the 19th century, its traditions reflect a much longer history. The original Palace of Westminster, the London home of English kings before becoming the meeting place of Parliament, was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1834. Parliamentary committees rejected proposed classical designs they thought suggested the White House and U.S. Capitol, considered symbols of rebellion. They selected instead a style known as “perpendicular Gothic,” with three towers more than 300 feet tall. The building, completed in 1870, includes 1,100 rooms, 100 stairways, three miles of hallways and a shooting range. “Big Ben” is a bell, housed in the Elizabeth Clock Tower. The Chambers for the House of Commons were rebuilt after being bombed in World War II and intentionally has fewer seats than members. The building incorporates traditions from earlier eras. The Lord Speaker of the House of Lords sits on a red sack of wool reflecting the central

importance of wool to England’s medieval economy, a custom dating from the 14th century. A box of snuff near the entrance to the Commons Chamber has been kept full since at least the 17th century, when smoking was banned. Members of Parliament from opposing parties face each other on historic green-covered benches, with two red lines on the floor between them demarking an area where no one may stand. The lines are said to be two sword lengths apart to prevent dueling. MPs are expected to hang their swords on pink ribbons in the cloak room. The best time to visit the Palace of Westminster is on Wednesdays, when the Prime Minister fields questions from the Leader of the Opposition, accompanied by heckling and cat calls. The session has gotten less raucous since the questioning time was moved to before lunch, when MPs used to down a pint or two to get ready, but it is still entertaining. Seats in the now shielded Strangers’ Gallery are limited, so plan ahead. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP. For the full column visit donknebel. com.

Generating shade to relax, escape

Congratulations Randy & Laura!

Commentary by Randy Sorrell The featured project speaks to many luxury outdoor living trends from the need for shade to the love of employing natural OUTdoors materials. This hidden patio almost feels neglected from the rest of the property. It’s nestled off the side of the house, not necessarily easy to get to and is recessed into the grade by three substantial cut-limestone slab steps. And it’s perfect. Exactly what the homeowners wanted to experience when we planned this escape from reality for them. It’s there place to manage a little down time from the kids, read a book and enjoy a glass of wine. SHADE STRATEGIES How to generate appropriate shade is perhaps the most frequently asked question we respond to. Of course shade trees are very affective, but waiting several years for impact is typically not preferred. Umbrellas are fantastic, too, and we employ them often, but can get in the way. Often, it’s a combination of strategies that bring the hoped for shade and the structurally sound pergola is a preferred tool. A wellplanned pergola can echo architectural details from the interior of the home serving to blend the spaces together. It can formalize an area or naturalize it based upon construction details and paint palette. But mostly it simply creates a nice dappled shade area that travels with the

path of the sun. This pergola serves to create the sense of space that we often refer to. It offers a ceiling and boundary to the patio and provides a marvelous structure for a wisteria to spread itself on. Expect to see creative shade creating innovations from brilliant minds across the globe in the next few years. Sure, we love the sun and the happiness a few hours absorbing those nutrients provides. But we also love our skin and being healthy requires fewer sunburns and more dappled shade. Randy Sorrell is president of SURROUNDINGS by NatureWorks+, a Carmel home improvement firm.

Cool kitchen and bath ideas for a modern home Commentary by David Decker

We are always on the lookout for new trends, styles and updates that can transform your living spaces. Here, I’ve compiled a indoors list of cool ideas for kitchen and bathroom updates that may inspire you to jumpstart a few summer renovation projects. Take a look and start feeling creative. Kitchen • Floating shelves: Instead of storing their dishes away in cupboards and cabinetry, more homeowners are choosing to display them as part of the kitchen aesthetic. Floating shelves are designed to be installed on a wall without showing any hardware or stabilizing brackets.  • Brass, black and gold metals: In everything from faucets to cabinet fixtures, brass, black and brushed gold have become trendier trendy than traditional silver. • Colorful backsplashes: Looking for a way to put a pop of color into your neutral kitchen? Try using colored tiles to create a visually exciting backsplash. Tiles are so versatile that you can experiment with designs using solid colors, patterns or mosaics. • Corner sinks: Most kitchens don’t utilize the corner for anything more than a countertop or appliance. A corner sink can free up your countertop space while bring a unique and trendy look to the kitchen.

Because they take up less space than the traditional tiled-in-tub, many homeowners are choosing to install a freestanding tub. (Submitted photo)

• Outside kitchens: For the family who enjoys eating, cooking and entertaining in the sunny weather, an outside kitchen is the perfect set-up. Outside kitchens are growing in popularity around the country, because they are so impressive, glamorous and functional at the same time. Bathroom • Stand alone tubs: Because they take up less space than the traditional tiled-in-tub,

many homeowners are choosing to install a freestanding tub. This also frees up space to create a luxurious modern shower. Luxury showers: When it comes to relaxing and unwinding after a tough day, showers are becoming more popular than bathtubs. Look for spacious showers that don’t include a traditional bench seat. Innovative storage: Bathrooms always seem overcrowded with beauty products, shaving kits, soaps, electronics and more. Maximize your storage space by taking advantage of moveable storage, deep cabinet drawers and behind the door storage. Glamorous lighting: A great lighting scheme in the bathroom can help you start and end your day in the right mood. Ditch your traditional overhead, vanity lighting for some innovative LED backlighting or stylish wall sconces. Install an overhead light or chandelier for an extra touch of elegance. Smart electronics and appliances:  Technological advances like touch-less faucets, high efficiency toilets and showerheads that conserve water are in high demand.
