Orchard Park site to become park amenity By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com The Carmel Clay Schools board of trustees approved a resolution June 14 to partner with Carmel Clay Parks & RecrePARKS ation to transform the Orchard Park Elementary property into a park amenity. It’s too early to know what the end result might look like or when it would open to the public, but the resolution formalized the partnership and allows both entities to officially begin exploring the possibilities. Orchard Park Elementary closed for good at the conclusion of the school year in May. CCS officials had been researching uses for the property since the school board voted in 2018 to close the aging building and open a new school — Clay Center Elementary — 5 miles to the northwest. Other options proposed for the site included using it for college-level education classes, an incubator for new businesses or as a community center. “We are thrilled to partner with the Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation in turning the Orchard Park Elementary School property into a park with a structure that can be utilized by the community and the schools,” CCS Supt. Michael Beresford said. “This was a top pick in our conversations with community members. We are excited about working on next steps with the CCPR team.” CCS will likely continue to own the property, which would be managed by CCPR, according to CCPR Director Michael Klitzing.

Both entities could use the property for programming and events. In part because the school is only a mile from the Monon Community Center, it’s unlikely the entire building will remain standing, Klitzing said. “I’m not sure there’s enough identified need within parks, unless there are other partners that come to the table, for a roughly 92,000-square-foot facility. Is there potential for portions of the building to remain? That is definitely being explored,” he said. “We’ll want to do a feasibility study to best assess if the structure or components of it are the best use or if there are more cost-effective (options) if we were to demolish and build something new. I don’t have any preconceived notions as to which is the best route to go.” After conducting the feasibility study, CCPR expects to develop a master plan for
the property as it does for other parks. Klitzing said CCPR will work with Clay Township and the City of Carmel to identify possible funding sources for future improvements. The parks board has yet to take action on managing the property, but Klitzing said he expects agreement with the CCS resolution. “This is probably the most logical and beneficial partnership to pursue for both (CCPR and CCS),” he said. “It’s something I know I fully support, and there is strong interest from the park board.” CCS plans to hold a tribute event for former Orchard Park students, teachers and families on Sept. 19. District officials are working with the Carmel Clay Historical Society to develop a monument to memorialize the years Orchard Park Elementary served the community.

Beresford said CCS hasn’t received guidance from the ISDH on how to track student vaccinations, which means the district will likely have to use the honor system. CCS officials are expected to update their COVID-19 safety plan this week and throughout the summer as needed. Beresford said the information will be posted to the district’s website, and that feedback from parents is welcome. Beresford expects to have the updated safety plan ready to present to the school board by the July 24 meeting. “We’re optimistic based on what’s happening around us,” Beresford said. “We aren’t medical professionals, we’re educators, and we’ll make the best decisions we can.”

Local athletes heading to Olympics By Jonathan Matthes and Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com At least three Hamilton County athletes are heading to Tokyo for the Olympic games. Fishers teen Tyler ACHIEVEMENT Downs won the 3-meter springboard competition June 13 at the U.S. Olympic Diving Trials at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis. Carmel High School graduate Drew Kibler finished third June 15 in the men’s 200-meter freestyle to earn a spot on the 800-meter relay team, and another CHS grad, Jake Kibler Mitchell, swam the 400-meter freestyle fast enough in a time trial that same night to make the team in that event. The swimming triels were in Omaha, Neb. Downs, 17, defeated a pair of former Olympians, David Boudia of Noblesville and Michael Hixon, to secure one of the two spots on the men’s Olympic diving team. Andrew Capobianco of Indiana University finished second to earn the other spot.

Downs scored 1333.75 points, 14.35 points higher than Capobianco and 18.8 than Boudia, a three-time Olympian. The Olympic Games begin July 23 and conclude Aug. 8. “I had no expectations going into this competition — just to have fun and that’s what I did. I dove my best and made it onto the Olympic team,” Downs said on NBC after securing his spot on Team USA. Downs, originally from St. Louis, moved to Fishers for training purposes. He will continue his diving career at Purdue University, where Boudia will be one of his coaches. Kibler, 21, swam the 400-meter freestyle in 1:45.66 to finish behind Mitchell Kieran Smith and Townley Haas. The top four finishers automatically make the relay team. Mitchell, 19, finished second in the 400-meter freestyle June 13, a finishing position that would have automatically put him on the team, but his time of 3:48.17 was not fast enough to qualify. On June 15, he swam alone and finished with a time of 3:45.86 to earn a spot.

State’s first lady addresses club By Anna Skinner firstname.lastname@example.org Indiana First Lady Janet Holcomb spoke about Gov. Eric Holcomb’s initiatives at the June 11 Rotary Club of ROTARY CLUB Carmel meeting, but she mostly shared about her experience as first lady. “This group wanted to know about being first lady, so I’m going to shift and share thoughts and stories and experiences I think you might enjoy,” Holcomb said. “One of the most obvious transitions since assuming office was moving to the governor’s residence. For me, the most jarring adjustment is the number of people who see me in my bathrobe or in sweaty clothes after working out or covered in dirt after working in the garden. That was very awkward and uncomfortable at first, but I’ve grown used to it.” Holcomb said as first lady, a long-standing tradition for each new administration is to pick out a china pattern. Holcomb used symbols of Indiana such as the cardinal, the peony, the tulip tree, “Back Home Again in Indiana” lyrics and the Say’s firefly in her design. Holcomb also shared stories about Henry, the family’s miniature Schnauzer. “He is an internet celebrity,” Holcomb said. “He is so popular he routinely receives wedding invitations. Nothing makes you more humble than when someone asks for a photo and then hands me their cellphone.” As governor and first lady, the Holcombs can make changes to the governor’s residence in Indianapolis. So far, the governor has added a basketball court on the north side of the property, and Holcomb built a chicken coop that can be converted to a garden shed. At the end of the presentation, Holcomb

Q: What are your responsibilities as to the involvement in the public? A: “The role of first lady is relatively undefined, and each first lady in the administration has found her niche. I’ve certainly done the same — just areas you want to be more involved in, help promote or organizations you want to spotlight and causes you want to bring attention to. It’s a wonderful ability and platform to be able to help bring recognition to people and things and places around the state.” Q: What role do you play when it comes to legislative matters and governor decisions? A: “We talk about a lot of things going on. Not every single bill, of course. There’s hundreds and thousands each session, but the major issues we talk about, and Eric values my opinion and asks for my feedback.”

Indoor playground planned By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com Indiana weather doesn’t always make it feasible for families to enjoy time at Carmel’s many playgrounds, so CarmPARKS el Clay Parks & Recreation officials want to create an indoor option at the Monon Community Center. The play structure is planned in what is now known as the multipurpose room west, which formerly housed a cafe. It is next to the KidZone, the MCC’s on-site child care service, which also is slated to receive upgrades. It would be open to MCC members and day-pass users. CCPR had been developing plans for the indoor playground before the COVID-19 pan-
demic, but the sharp decrease in use of the MCC put the project on hold. “As COVID came and disrupted everyone’s life, including our operations at the MCC, we mothballed (the idea), but we feel we’re in a position now where it makes sense to begin starting up those conversations again,” CCPR Director Michael Klitzing said. CCPR is working with Williams Architects, which designed the MCC, to plan the indoor playground. The structure would likely be a best fit for children ages 2 to 9, Klitzing said, but it will be designed to allow older siblings to play, too. Klitzing wants to have plans finalized for the project by the end of the year. He is working with the project team to develop an estimated cost.

Carmel FC U12 wins state title By Mark Ambrogi firstname.lastname@example.org The Carmel FC 2009 Girls Gold Club registered an impressive first earlier this month. The girls under-12 team won SOCCER the state title called the Presidents Cup, the top division, and became the first Carmel FC team of any gender and age group to win the top tier. Carmel FC beat Indy Premier 1-0 in overtime June 6. Bella Cueto got the winning goal. “They believe in themselves, and they were willing to put in the work and effort to get to their goals,” said Mark Flanders, who served as co-head coach with Nikki Nace. “Because COVID-19 canceled the spring season, we started our training earlier in the summer of 2020, and we did a threeday camp as a group to begin the process. One thing this group elected to do was write down on paper their individual goals and team goals. They came up with a team motto that they wanted to carry with them through the season.” The team motto was “One Team, One Dream.” The two goals the girls wrote down was

to win their division in the Indiana Soccer League, which they did, and the state title. The team finished with a 19-0-3 record. The team won its bracket to advance to the June 5 semifinals. Carmel FC beat Northwest Lions 3-1 in the semifinals. On the season, Carmel FC outscored its opponents 70 to 8. Cueto and Caroline Mosher were the team’s goalkeepers.

No Spark Buttons this year By Mark Ambrogi email@example.com Jeff Worrell made the decision that Spark Buttons would go dark this year. “Spark Buttons is a CARMELFEST loved tradition and one that I’m not giving up on,” said Worrell, who started selling Spark Buttons to raise money to help pay for CarmelFest fireworks in 1994. However, Worrell said the decision came down to his own conscience when they were determining whether CarmelFest would be held this year. The Spark Buttons are sold for $5 in a plastic bag with $50 to $100 worth of coupons from businesses. Worrell would order 2,500 Spark Buttons each year. “A key component is asking our local business community to not only give a coupon of value but also print up 2,500 of those coupons, which is an expense,” Worrell said. “So, I personally did not feel it was appropriate for me to run around asking our local business community for a handout when they were all just recovering from the (COVID-19) pandemic.”
From left, the late Jack Badger and his wife, Ila Badger, and Jeff Worrell and his wife, Sheri Worrell, sell Spark Buttons. (Submitted photo)
Traditionally, Worrell said mom-and-pop businesses were the main source of the Spark Buttons, and many of those were the hardest hit by the pandemic. Worrell, a Carmel City Council member who oversees the fireworks as a longtime CarmelFest volunteer, said Spark Buttons sales would raise approximately $10,000 to $14,000, which would help cover the cost of fireworks, which cost $42,500 in 2019. The cost to hold fireworks at three sites over two night, July 4-5 is $75,000.

CHS students arrange Carmel Pride 2021 By Mark Ambrogi email@example.com While chatting over tacos in late May, Carmel High School students Aanchal Agarwal and Ethan Stoehr came up EVENT with the idea for a Carmel Pride event. Carmel Pride 2021 is set for 4 to 8 p.m. June 27 at the Carter Green lawn at the Center for the Performing Arts. “We have a great team working on this, which is why we’ve been able to pump it out so quickly,” Agarwal said. “We have a lot of people passionate about it. It’s been great we’ve been able to get it done so quickly.” Agarwal said some people have never been to a Pride event, and with COVID-19 restrictions loosening, it felt like a good time to celebrate. “I think there is great appetite for something like this,” Agarwal said. “A lot of people don’t think that Carmel is a city for things like this. You might consider Indi-
anapolis. Ethan and I were thinking from the beginning that is even more reason for Carmel to do this to come out and show the (LGBTQ) community that we do support them and make Carmel a more welcoming place.” Daniel Tanner is helping arrange the entertainment and outreach for the event. Tanner said there will be student bands and Indianapolis drag queen performers. Tanner said there will be live music by area performers, vendors, food trucks and speakers. Tanner said the Carmel Pride committee hopes to continue the event annually. Agarwal, Stoehr and Tanner will all be seniors in the fall. “We have a group of 30 to 40 students involved that are organizing different parts of the event,” Tanner said. “It’s grown in popularity quite quickly. We got a lot of following on the event on social media. A lot of the LGBTQ+ community were ready for a reason to celebrate after COVID (pandemic restrictions were eased).”

Recovering from cabin fever DRINK
INDIANA CITY BEER T R E AT YO U R S E L F T O T H E B E S T.
Commentary by Lorene Burkhart Despite its name, cabin fever is not a physical ailment but a popular expression describing our feelings of PLAIN TALK confinement after recent quarantines and isolation. This term was used by an author in the title of her book in 1918 and has continued through the years. Another favorite expression used to describe our feelings of frustration during this time is “stir crazy.” Growing up in southern Indiana, colloquialisms were frequently used in my community. Favorites at my house when it was raining was “it’s rainin’ cats and dogs.” Another favorite was “spittin’ image” to describe a child who looked like their parent. I remember my mother picking blackberries in the “holler.”
Different areas of the nation have their own unique descriptions and slang in addition to their dialects. It’s easy to identify Boston and Texas natives as well as the Deep South. Southern Indiana has its own way of speaking — Illinois became Illnoise and Indianapolis became Indanaplis. We always knew what was meant. As I became a broadcaster I had to “clean up my act” and learn how to talk Midwestern, which is the standard in broadcasting. Even Diane Sawyer, from Kentucky, got it right. So watch for the cats and dogs next time it rains!
Lorene Burkhart resides at The Stratford in West Clay. She is the author of seven books.

After being advised against marriage, Carmel couple prepares to celebrate 60th anniversary By Anna Skinner firstname.lastname@example.org Jim and Katie Kessler will be married for 60 years June 24, and in all that time, they don’t recall ever having a true fight. “One time, we were having a disagreement, and I said something, and she just ignored me, and I asked why, and she said, ‘It’s not worth fighting about,’” Jim said. “Nothing in a relationship with the person you love most in the world should cause you to fight with them or resort to name calling. In 60 years, I have never called her a nasty name. We are always upset when we are somewhere and hear the wife or husband saying something behind (the spouse’s) back. We hate that.” The couple, who moved to Carmel in 1973, met at Purdue University, where they both were studying pharmacy. Jim was part of the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity, and Katie was part of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. Katie said she’s not really sure when she actually met her future husband, since they were in classes together all the time, but they first spoke to each other at Kappa Delta Rho’s fraternity’s
neighborhood tea. “One day, when I was a sophomore, my fraternity house always had a neighborhood tea to pay the neighbors back for any offenses or any problems caused,” Jim said. “I was second vice president, so I was at the door greeting people, and Katie and one of her sorority sisters and the house mother showed up. We looked at each other and said almost at the same time, ‘I know you.’” The couple didn’t begin dating until the end of their junior year, when they went to the junior prom at Purdue together. Jim proposed in March 1961, but said he was “disengaged at least three times” before the couple finally married on June 24, 1961. Jim is a lifelong Catholic, and Katie is a lifelong Methodist, and neither were going to convert, so Katie worried it would be a point of tension in the relationship. “My Catholic faith taught me I can’t change, and she loved (being) Methodist, and she did not convert. She was never going to convert, and I was never going to change,” Jim said. “The priest who married us said, ‘Don’t do it, mixed marriages don’t work,’ but we went ahead and did it.” They were married in a Catholic

‘REMEMBER THE GOOD THINGS’ Sixty years of marriage for Jim and Katie Kessler has brought its share of challenges. The couple admits one of the biggest was Jim Kessler’s service in the Marine Corps. He served on an aircraft carrier during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Kesslers spent their first Thanksgiving as a married couple apart. Jim also ended up missing their first anniversary because he was attending Survival School for the Marines at the time. “His being in the service and away so much was a challenge, and he worked a lot,” Katie said. “And we had been married four years when his father died suddenly and left a widow and a teenage son at home, so we tried to support her, and then five months later, my
Jim and Katie Kessler were married in 1961.
Seton Catholic Church and Katie attends Carmel United Methodist Church. They both have participated in missions to Haiti with their churches. “The only reason we need two cars is so we can go to different churches every Sunday,” Jim said. But despite going to different churches, the couple prays together daily. Jim said the couple’s love for each other has only grown in the past 60 years. When asked if they love each other more now than when they were first married, Katie immediately responded, “Oh, yes, much more.” “So, love changes,” Jim said. “It does get better, but you have to work at it.” And 25 years after the couple married, the same priest who advised them not to marry performed the wedding ceremony for the couple’s daughter. “I told him, ‘You don’t remember, but 25 years ago, you told us not to marry, and I want you to know we have a happy, joyful marriage,’” Jim said. For their anniversary, the couple plans to enjoy lunch together.
dad suddenly died, and my 18-year-old brother came to live with us. So, we had a 2-year-old, a 4-year-old and an 18-yearold, and that was a challenging time. “You go through hard times, but as time goes on, we tend to remember the good things. We have never been people to dwell on the hard times.” The Kesslers said they’ve strengthened their love through the years by always treating each other politely and with kindness. Katie also encourages couples to find activities they enjoy doing together. The Kesslers were ballroom dancers for 25 years and even taught the skill for some time. They participate in Zoom yoga together, and they also like to read together.

I can’t hear you
Commentary by Terry Anker “What is wrong with people?” the widow exclaimed. “I am so disheartened right now.” A prequalified couple had agreed to purchase the home she’d shared with her departed husband but had entreated for a short-term lease to make the timing for their move a bit more convenient. The widow kindly agreed. The couple again asked for an extension of the closing date. This time, the reasons given seemed either too vague or entirely implausible. Still, the accommodating widow accommodated. Naturally, as the newest closing date approached, the couple said they needed still more time. With this, the widow pushed back, and the couple admitted that they had overshot their budget in the last few months and were now short about 20 percent of the capital needed. As the sob story unfolded, they asked the widow to let them pay her, over time, for the gap. Offended by her resistance, they felt entitled to remind her that she “must have” seen some insurance money. Since she, they assumed, had cash in her pocket, she had an ethical obligation to share some of it with them. This story is all too common. Today’s general lack of empathy, coupled with a loss of any fear of social constraint, inevitably leads to grotesque self-centeredness. Many of us are confronted with those who say, and believe, that we are obligated to make their lives easier by making ours more difficult. “Getting even is not only justified,” they might argue, “it is a moral duty.” The problem with the summary change of thousands of years of human experience is that much of the way we live is good — and that not all change is. The law, the social contract and basic common sense are mostly right. Are there inequities? Probably. Still, aren’t rules better than chaos?

Mine ears have heard the coming of the horror of old age … Yes, I know those aren’t the exact lyrics, but I’m a bit whack-a-doodle, friends. Thanks to some impressive wax build-up and subsequent ear infection, I’ve lost all hearing on my left side and about 50 percent on my right. And because said wax is rock solid, I’m having to “soften” it for four days with peroxide drops before it can be scraped clear. So, basically, I’ve been stumbling around in my own quiet little bubble, head titled at an awkward angle, constantly yelling “What?” to anyone and everyone. My husband and relatively new hearing-aid wearer Doo finds this to be a hilarious moment of marital karma. “Now you know how it feels!” has become his annoying refrain. In my defense, I’ve always been sympathetic to Doo’s deafness, which he’s suffered since childhood. What frustrated me and why I teased him was that he refused to do anything about it, purely for vanity’s sake. But admittedly, until this week, I hadn’t fully understood how debilitating and alienating not being able to hear is. Bike rides, phone calls, watching TV and multiple-people conversations became real challenges that left me frustrated and overwhelmed. And the physical disorientation resulted in more stubbed toes and bruised thighs than when I was nine-months pregnant. With twins. The point is, I’ve had a glimpse into my geriatric future, and I don’t like it. I’ve come to terms with my deteriorating eyesight; I even look good with my 1.50 purple readers. But I’m not ready to yield mine ears to the horrors of old age. Do you hear me? Peace out.

A shell of my pet-loving self Commentary by Dick Wolfsie Several evenings a week, the neighbors on our cul-de-sac gather with their dogs in the driveway across the street HUMOR from us. There is Max, Pace, Gus, Louie, Ella, Dain and Lucy. These are the dogs’ names. I’m very bad with human names, but I know which dog belongs to whom. Occasionally, the group includes children and visiting grandchildren. Mary Ellen and I have no grandchildren and we no longer have a dog, but we do have a cat (Mary Ellen’s, really) who would not do well in these otherwise civilized gatherings. I needed a pet of my own. I called my friends Marty and John in New Palestine. Marty is a turtle whisperer who has been rehabbing turtles and enjoying them as pets for 20 years. Because she often relocates rescued turtles, Marty happily provided me with three red-eared sliders who would soon reside in the pond a few hundred yards from our house. I named them Stan, Ollie and Baby Huey. I carefully loaded them into the car and headed home. The neighbor kids met me at the water’s edge, giggling with delight (you can see a short video on my Facebook page). Once a day (sometimes twice) … OK, occasionally three times, I visit my turtles and spread joy (or whatever is in that can of food Marty gave me) across the pond. Redeared sliders don’t need to surface for air very often, which means that I sometimes
have to stand on the shore for 90 minutes scanning the water to confirm that all three of my adoptees are OK. I eagerly wait for each head to pop up, then toss more food in that direction. I whistle when I feed them, hoping they will connect my signal with their nourishment. The neighbors can probably see me from their deck, and I’m sure it appears to them like I am looking at my reflection in the water and then whistling at the image. Not true. I am retired from TV and am no longer that narcissistic. I’m excited about another new addition to my family. While driving home the other day, I saw in the road a turtle about the size of a dinner plate, and he was clearly in danger of being – DICK WOLFSIE squashed by the next oncoming vehicle. I swerved onto a side street, dashed from my car, scooped him up and deposited him on my front seat. I named him Buster, after my favorite silent star, Buster Keaton. I don’t think he’ll ever say much. Now, I have four new pets. Of course, turtles cannot join us for our evening puppy parties, but I know they are happy swimming in the pond behind our neighbors’ house. I forget our neighbors’ names, but their dog’s name is Chewy.
There is Max, Pace, Gus, Louie, Ella, Dain and Lucy. These are the dogs’ names. I’m very bad with human names, but I know which dog belongs to whom.

Garden Table coming to Carmel By Anna Skinner email@example.com The Garden Table co-owner Jessie Harden thought with the Monon Greenway adjacent, the Railyard buildRESTAURANT ing in Carmel would be an excellent site for the eatery’s third location, which is slated to open in early fall. “We are a fresh juicer and a local eatery, and we focus on ingredients from local farms as much as possible, especially in the spring and summer when they’re in season,” Harden said. “We cold press our own juice.” The Garden Table has eight juices coldpressed in-house. The juices are 100 percent raw and have a three-day shelf life because they have no additives. “It’s all fruits and vegetables and herbs,” Harden said. The Garden Table has two other locations. The Broad Ripple site opened in 2014 and the Mass Ave store in Indianapolis opened in 2017. The menus differ slightly, but Harden said the Carmel menu will be more comparable to the Mass Ave menu.

“It’s a bigger menu because there’s a bigger space and a bigger kitchen,” Harden said. “We will be serving our daytime menu, which is a brunch menu, and we will be serving dinner in Carmel.” The Garden Table served dinner at the Mass Ave location prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, but dinner operations have yet to resume. “We will have a patio facing the Monon and a patio on the south side that runs (along) the south side of the building so it will be a huge L,” Harden said.

Clay Terrace owner files for bankruptcy By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com The owner of Clay Terrace has filed for bankruptcy, an action caused in part by the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on RETAIL retailers, according to company officials. Washington Prime Group, which owns Clay Terrace and approximately 100 other shopping centers throughout the nation, filed for Chapter 11 protection June 13 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of Texas. The announcement wasn’t unexpected to many, as it followed a report in March that Washington Prime had missed an interest payment on its debt and was considering filing for bankruptcy. According to a press release, the bankruptcy will allow Washington Prime to implement a comprehensive and consensual financial restructuring of the company’s corporate-level debt that will allow it to substantially deleverage its balance sheet and strengthen its business and operations going forward, either through a full equitization of the company’s unsecured notes or

an alternative value-maximizing transaction that would repay, in full, in cash, all of the company’s corporate-level debt. Day-to-day operations at Washington Prime’s retail centers are not expected to be impacted by the bankruptcy filing. “The company’s financial restructuring will enable WPG to right size its balance sheet and position the company for success going forward,” stated Lou Conforti, CEO and director of Washington Prime. “During the financial restructuring, we will continue to work toward maximizing the value of our assets and our operating infrastructure. The company expects operations to continue in
the ordinary course for the benefit of our guests, tenants, vendors, stakeholders and colleagues.” A WPG spokesperson stated that guests should expect “business as usual” at Clay Terrace and that redevelopment efforts are proceeding. “We expect the process to have minimal impact on our operations, including active leasing and redevelopment efforts at Clay Terrace. WPG has secured access to debtor-in-possession financing and cash collateral, and a motion was approved by the court for approval to ensure sufficient liquidity during the Chapter 11 period to run our business without interruption,” the statement read. Washington Prime filed plans to redevelop a portion of Clay Terrace to include residential units, a hotel, parking garage and other improvements just as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold in early 2020. The pandemic initially delayed those plans, but several months later, a representative for Washington Prime stated in documents filed with the city that the pandemic brought more urgency to transform the shopping center to include a greater variety of uses.

As dog lovers, Carmel restaurant owners Richelle and Kevin RESTAURANT “Woody” Rider felt compelled to do something special for their furry, four-legged diners. “We had a lot more time during the shutdowns, and my wife came up with the idea,” Kevin said of the Bow Wow Menu. Richelle, a chef, designed a menu for dogs for divvy. Dogs are allowed on the patio of both divvy and Woody’s Library Restaurant, both owned by the Riders, but Woody’s doesn’t yet have a menu. Richelle is in charge of both kitchens. Proceeds from the sales go to the Humane Society for Hamilton County, with $1,000 already donated, Kevin said. The Bow Wow Menu items include Crunchers (matchstick carrots, cucumbers and apple slices); Barky Berries (fresh blueberries and strawberries); Protein Picks (grilled New York strip or shredded chicken); Sticky Spoon (filled with peanut butter); and Whippy Cream Cup (traditional milk or vegan

Zionsville sisters share stage in ‘Sound of Music’ By Mark Ambrogi firstname.lastname@example.org Performing as one of the von Trapp children in “The Sound of Music” has a true family feel for Claire Kauffman. “One of my favorite things about this musical is THEATER getting to be a part of the von Trapp family,” Claire said. “Being one out of the seven siblings and getting to be in this with my sister, Cynthia, is not only fun on stage but also off stage. Playing Louisa is so different than any other role I have played, and her sneaky and upbeat personality is so fun to experiment with, too.” Cynthia Kauffman plays Liesl in the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre production of “The Sound of Music,” which will run from June 24 to Aug. 15. Cynthia graduated from Zionsville Community High School in 2019 and is majoring in music theater at Indiana University. Claire will be a ZCHS freshman in the fall. “This role will for sure be one that I will always look back on,” Claire said. “I’m not sure when I will get to be in another show with my sister. Playing Louisa in such a well-known show, with Cynthia and other friends in the cast, will be very memorable for me.” Claire said the main challenge of playing Louisa is being part of the big family. “The von Trapp children have different personalities, and finding those things that make Louisa stand out is a part of the whole acting process,” Claire said. “Along with making Louisa her own unique character, I take on different harmonies in multiple songs. One of the trickiest songs for me has been ‘The Sound of Music.’ Perfecting those harmonies will make the song sound as best as it can.” Claire’s favorite number is “The Lonely Goatherd.” “I love the fun, uptempo movements,” Claire said. “You really get a glimpse of how enjoyable it is to be on stage. Everything about the number is all about storytelling, and I
think that makes it exciting to perform and watch.” This is the first time either sister has appeared in the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. “This is a dream role, so getting to play Liesl has been such a joy so far,” Cynthia said. “What I love about ‘The Sound of Music’ is the fact that it is such a classic and fun for all ages. I love Liesl’s free spirit and her confidence as a young woman and getting to portray that on stage.” Cynthia said her favorite numbers are “Sixteen going on Seventeen” and “So Long, Farewell.” “I have loved being able to do some partner dancing but also dancing with the von Trapp children,” she said. “I also enjoy learning the choreography to these iconic numbers.” Cynthia said one challenge she faces playing Liesl is, although she is mature, she is still a child. “Being able to find small moments where her naive and adolescent instincts can shine through is important to the story,” Cynthia said. Cynthia has had a few opportunities to act since the COVID-19 pandemic caused a shutdown in March 2020. “Since I am a performance major in college, it is pretty much my life,” Cynthia said. “Over the last year, I have had small performing opportunities at school, but being back in a real theater and on a stage makes me happier than ever.” Clare got the opportunity to perform in a Zionsville Middle School play earlier this year. “Life feels pretty boring without live theater,” Claire said. “When something you usually do every day gets canceled, it makes you realize how important it is. I got back in the mode of performing back in March when I got to start rehearsals for my school musical, ‘Singin’ in the Rain.’ “Playing Lina Lamont was a great way to get back in the swing of things.” For more, visit beefandboards.com.

Red Barn shows ‘The Odd Couple’ By Mark Ambrogi firstname.lastname@example.org Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple” debuted on Broadway in 1965 with Art Carney as neat freak Felix Ungar and Walter THEATER Matthau as sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison. That was followed by the movie with Jack Lemmon (Felix) and Matthau reprising his role, then the TV show with Tony Randall (Felix) and Jack Klugman (Oscar). Since then, it’s had several variations, including females in the lead roles. Now, Red Barn Summer Theatre, 2120 E. County Line Rd., Frankfort, will take its turn presenting the classic comedy from June 23 to July 3. “I’m almost positive this is the first time we’ve done it at the Barn,” said Red Barn Artistic Director Michael Taylor, who will direct the show. The play tells the story of friends who bicker after Felix’s wife throws him out of the house and he moves in with Oscar. Luke McLaughlin is cast as Oscar, and Aaron Moon portrays Felix. “It’s one of those shows that kind of

went through a phase where everybody was doing it,” Taylor said. “Over the last few years, it’s dropped off. It’s sat dormant around this area, and this gave us the opportunity to finally do it. “The Odd Couple” features a cast of seven. “The cast is excited to do it because it’s a great work,” Taylor said. “Our first show this season is more slapstick comedy. (‘The Odd Couple’) has more of a realistic feel, so they like playing the more honest characters.” For more, visit redbarntheatre.net.

Big Hoffa’s Smokehouse
Commentary by Anna Skinner
CONCERT SERIES JUNE 3RD - AUGUST 5TH 7-9PM EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT
Address: 800 E. Main St., Westfield What to get: Full rack of ribs Price: $20.99 Anna’s take: If you haven’t visited Big Hoffa’s Smokehouse since it expanded into 8,000 square feet of space, you need to put it on your to-do list ASAP. I grew up in Westfield, and until recently, Big Hoffa’s occupied a small space on the south side of the property on Ind. 32. But owner Adam Hoffman recently expanded into the rest of the building, and now Big Hoffa’s space matches its taste — big. I sampled several items, and my favorite thing about Big Hoffa’s (other than the barbecue) is the incredibly large menu that offers more than just barbecue. I tried The Amendment ($9.99), which is beef brisket on a bed of jasmine rice with teriyaki glaze, homemade giardiniera (which has 37 ingredients!), cilantro, onions and spicy mayo. I also tried The Hoffinator ($9.79), one of
Clockwise, from top left, brisket, ribs, the Hoffinator, the Amendment and macaroni and cheese. These portions are sample sizes provided for the sake of this column. The actual sizes are larger. (Photo by Anna Skinner)
Big Hoffa’s biggest sellers, which are fries loaded with macaroni and cheese, baked beans, pulled pork, barbecue sauce and ranch. I tried two sandwiches — the Butcher’s Bill ($8.49) with chicken, buffalo and ranch sauce, macaroni and cheese and fries on a garlic butter bun — and the Buccaneer ($8.49), Hoffa’s flagship sandwich with pork, coleslaw, fries and ranch on a garlic butter bun. I also tried sides of fries and macaroni and cheese, brisket and ribs. My favorite item was probably the ribs. Even as someone who’s not much of a dry rub person (I prefer saucy wings and barbecue), I completely bypassed the barbecue sauce and ate the ribs with no toppings, they were that delicious. For a beverage, be sure to try the sassafras sweet tea, which has a mild root beer flavor.

Keeping it clean and simple with elegantly simple designs Commentary by Bill Bernard One of the popular trends now is to use clean, crisp-lined fixtures and accessories. In the photo, you’ll notice REMODELING that not only is the vanity faucet elegantly designed and finished in black, but so is the frame of the mirror and the trim on the shower enclosure (seen in the reflection of the mirror). Product manufacturers have responded to this trend by producing every imaginable fixture and accessory with elegantly simple designs and finish options. Designing with these relatively simple elements presents two potential aesthetic directions. One direction highlights the clean, crisp lines and uses the surrounding material selections to reinforce the elegantly refined look. The other
direction is to allow these relatively simple elements to recess into the background of the design and placing them in conjunction with relatively strong design elements. The relatively strong elements could be vibrant artwork, plush floor coverings, unique furniture pieces or even boldly colored towels. In this particular project, we chose to allow the fixtures and black finishes to be the focal point of the design. Which design direction suits your lifestyle? Stay home, be moved.

Touring Madison’s historic Lanier Mansion Commentary by Don Knebel A visit to the Lanier Mansion in Madison, Ind., provides an opportunity both to see one of the nation’s finest Greek TRAVEL Revival homes and to learn about a Hoosier hero. In 1817, 17-year-old James Lanier moved with his family to Madison. Three years later, he opened a law office and soon became clerk of the Indiana General Assembly. By the 1830s, because of successful investments in Indiana’s first railroad, he was among Indiana’s wealthiest citizens. In 1840, Lanier engaged a Madison architect to design a house for him on a 10-acre site overlooking the Ohio River. When completed in 1844, the exterior of the brick house, encompassing about 13,500 square feet, featured a riverside portico with four fluted Corinthian columns and dentiled entablatures containing circular windows. The three-story interior included a curved wall, Ionic columns separating two first-floor parlors and a spiral staircase extending toward
the state $400,000 for that purpose, a sum equal to about $13 million today. James Lanier died in 1881, but his mansion stayed in the Lanier family until 1917, when his youngest son donated it to the Jefferson County Historical Society, which in turn gave it to the state of Indiana. Today, the Indiana State Museum operates the Lanier Mansion and the surrounding grounds. The appearance of the house and grounds reflects significant work in the 1990s to restore them to their original appearance and grandeur. The carpets and wallpaper are reproductions of those available in 1844. The formal gardens, added by James’ son Alexander, were restored based on an 1876 lithograph of the site.

Bombastic bloviating Commentary by Curtis Honeycutt Have you ever read a formal proclamation? Suppose the guy who has worked on trees for the city’s parks department retires after 25 years of serGRAMMAR GUY vice and the mayor wants to honor him for his service. Someone plants a puny-looking tree in a park, and they dedicate it to the outgoing arborist. But that’s not all. The mayor inevitably shows up with a formal proclamation. The flowery language is bound by a leather-clad piece of overblown cardboard bordered by some gold filagree on the certificate-worthy taupe-colored paper. The mayor declares that June 3 will hereby be known in the city as “Rick Philby Jr. Day.” Of course, the mayor’s office really went for it with the language for Rick’s proclamation. In fact, the words were so highfalutin and redundant that — not only was the tribute a perplexing way to say “attaboy,” but it ended up being longer than a CVS receipt. Yes, grandiloquence is a style of speaking or writing that includes large words but little meaning. Politicians excel at it to the point where I think the first thing they teach you in first-time politician classes is how to bloviate for an hour without ever saying anything of substance. Grandiloquence is formal but shallow. This type of speech is all sizzle and no steak. The identical twin of grandiloquence is “bombast.” Bombastic speech is fancy, puffed-up nonsense language disguised as importance. Poor ol’ Rick from the parks department probably would have preferred a nice watch or a modest Amazon gift card. In the 16th century, the term “bombast” emerged by way of Old French and Latin before it. It means “cotton padding,” or — quite literally — “fluff.” We get the term “grandiloquence” from the Latin word “grandiloquentia,” meaning “lofty speech or language.” Curtis Honeycutt is a national award-winning, syndicated humor writer.
