Around the county

Housing market inspires optimism By Jim Litten • The Central Indiana housing market continues to show improvement as we move further into the second quarter. Through the first five months of the year, 10,666 homes pended – an increase of 13.2 percent – compared to the same time period last year in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. In May 2012, pended home sales rose to 2,330 – an increase of 7 percent compared to May 2011. In Hamilton County, the housing market is gradually improving. • Through the first five months of the year, 2,236 pended in Hamilton County, which is an increase of 238 homes compared to the same time period last year. • In Carmel, 140 homes pended in May 2012 – a 2.2 percent increase from May 2011. • Bargain hunters and sellers are both faring well with competitive pricing. In Carmel,

the average sales price for a home in May 2012 was $317,027 – a modest increase of $3,278 compared to May 2011. • Inventory is tightening. In May 2012, there were 789 homes on the market, which is 66 fewer homes compared to May 2011. • The big picture in Carmel looks encouraging. Through the first five months of this year, 534 homes closed, which is an increase of 61 homes compared to the same time period last year. The average sales price of those closed homes rose to $304,472 – up $5,442 year-to-date. We remain cautiously optimistic as we enter the second half of the year. Interest rates remain at historic lows, and there are plenty of affordable houses on the market. Now is the time to buy for homeowners looking to make their dollars go further.

Carmel teen reports assault On June 12 at approximately 2:30 p.m. Carmel Police officers responded to a suspicious person call in the area of 4200 E. 126th Street. A 15-yearold girl stated that she was riding her bike across the bridge when an unknown male subject stopped her. According to the girl’s statement, the subject spoke with her briefly then placed his hand on her chest. The suspect left the area headed east. Police searched the surrounding area and spoke with several people. This is an ongoing investigation and the department has increased police patrols in the area. The subject was described as a white male, between 35-50 years old, wearing a blue baseball hat, blue Under Armour shirt and athletic style shorts. He was approximately 5’ 9” and had a muscular build. If you have any information on this incident please call the Carmel Police Department’s Investigations Division at 571-2536 or Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.

HAMILTON COUNTY LEADERSHIP ACADEMY – The HCLA is accepting applications for the 201213 class. The 10-month academy will begin in September and run through June 2013. Applications are due June 30 and can be found online at or by contacting Jill Doyle at jdoyle@ or 379-1879.

DIVORCE – WHAT TO EXPECT: Options to Resolve Your Case Prior to Trial In family law, a majority of cases settle outside of the courtroom. There are many reasons to attempt to reach a settlement, including uncertainty as to the judge’s decision, anxiety about testifying in court, the potential to increase animosity between the parties, and the attorney’s fees associated with attending a hearing. It is common for a party to never step foot inside of a courtroom because the parties reach an agreement on all terms without the requiring the court’s intervention. There are two primary methods to reach an out-of-court agreement: informal negotiations and mediation. Informal negotiations involve communication between the parties and/or their counsel concerning the terms of a final agreement. This process involves communication as to the terms of a final agreement without the assistance of a third party (a mediator or judge). In some instances, the parties may be able to reach an agreement on the general terms of an agreement and engage counsel to assist with the finalization of those terms to ensure approval by the court. In other cases, counsel for the parties will exchange proposals and draft agreements in an attempt to reach a resolution. In the event parties are unable to reach an agreement through informal negotiations, mediation is a common next step. Mediation may be agreed upon by the parties or ordered by the court. At mediation, the parties are typically placed in separate rooms with their counsel and the mediator serves as the neutral third party who exchanges proposals between the parties in intensive and focused settlement negotia-

tions. The mediator’s role is to assist the parties in their attempt to reach common ground by addressing certain considerations as to an anticipated reasonable outcome in court as well as other realistic and pragmatic concerns with any proposed settlement. There are instances where parties do not reach an agreement during mediation. In that case, a final hearing is the next step as the mediator does not have the authority to order the parties to comply with certain terms or reach a final agreement. A recent trend in family law is for the parties to engage in a collaborative divorce process. In  such instances, parties are focused on reaching a collaborative agreement and hire respective counsel trained to do so. The process is similar in many respects to informal negotiations and mediation, with the ultimate goal of reaching an agreeable settlement. One different aspect of the collaborative law process is that in the event parties are unable to reach a settlement, they must hire new counsel and begin the process anew. At Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., our team has the experience, the understanding, and the compassion to assist with your family law needs. If you have questions or concerns regarding divorce, mediation, collaborative law or any other family law concerns, please contact our firm at 317.DIVORCE or visit our website at Stay tuned for the next installment of “Divorce-What to Expect: Going to Court” by HOLLINGSWORTH & ZIVITZ, P.C.



Wednesday burglaries believed related By Jordan Fischer • Carmel Police say they believe two burglaries which occurred between morning and early afternoon Wednesday may be related. The burglaries come as the latest in a string of burglaries reported throughout Hamilton County, many originating from businesses and homes in Carmel and Fishers. As of press time, there was no suspected connection reported by police between the Carmel and Fishers robberies. On Wednesday at approximately 9:00 a.m. a burglary was reported in the 11500 block of Senie Lane in Carmel. The victim reported that an unknown male forced entry into her home while she was sleeping. The victim shouted at the suspect who fled the home. He was described as a black male, with an athletic build, approximately 28-34 years old, 5’8” and 160 pounds with short black hair. The suspect was wearing a blue t-

shirt, red shorts and a black “do-rag” at the time of the break in. The suspect was frightened off before any valuables were taken. Police searched the area with a K-9 but were unable to locate the suspect. At approximately 2:45 p.m. a second burglary was reported in the area of 9900 Hodges Road. A witness reported seeing a possible suspect and suspicious vehicle in the area of this burglary. The suspect was described as a black male, 5’8”, slender build, black hair, wearing a “do-rag.” The vehicle was a medium to dark gray, full-size truck with “4x4” printed on the tailgate and Texas plates. Detectives believe these two incidents are related. If you have any information that would assist with these investigations please call the Carmel Police Department at 571-2511 or Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.

Center could receive $840k more from city this year By Jordan Fischer • The Carmel Common Council held first reading an ordinance last Monday night which, if approved, would send $1.6 million to arts organizations in the city, including $840,000 for the Center for the Performing Arts. The subsidy would be the second major funding infusion into the arts organization in the last year – the Center received $5.5 million from the Carmel City Center Community Development Corp. (4CDC) last fall, which is projected to run out by June 30. Speaking to the council prior to the ordinance’s hearing, interim Center CEO Frank Basile stressed the Center’s commitment to reducing its dependency on city funding. “To reduce city contributions, we are focusing on increasing contributed income,” Basile said, adding that ticket sales for the 2012-13 season already amount to $1.1 million. “We do not believe there is much potential for cutting expenses. Out of necessity, when I became the interim CEO we did cut the budget by around $1.5 million, reduced staffing by 13 and realigned four departments, among other things. We are operating efficiently on a relatively small staff for this size organization.” The grant would be a substantial increase from the city’s previous arts funding budget of $270,000, a level set two years ago following

concerns from some council members as to how deficits at the Center would be paid for. In presenting the funding ordinance, Mayor Jim Brainard attempted to alleviate some apparent concerns of the council. “If you take out our city-owned facilities – the Tarkington, the Studio Theatre, the Palladium – what I’m proposing is still only about 1 percent of the general budget,” he said. “I’ve worked this into our multi-year fiscal plan. It still fits within the plan. And I think that … our arts initiatives are having (an impact) on economic development, not only from patrons going to restaurants, but also in terms of our ability to attract companies from other places to Carmel to be permanent property tax payers, to be permanent employers.” In addition to funding for the Center, the ordinance would provide additional monies to 16 other arts organizations in the city, among them the Actors Theatre of Indiana ($55,000), the Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre ($30,000) and the Carmel Symphony Orchestra ($200,000), all resident companies of the Center. A motion to have first reading on the ordinance was unanimously approved. It will now go to the Finance, Administration and Rules Committee before returning to the council for a second reading.

Duty. Honor. Cleanliness. Three simple words guide a new breed of men and women called to serve. It takes a special personality, a unique individual willing to step forward and protect a grateful community. The CarmelFest Trash Trooper is truly a hero and today, I pay homage to this highly trained Special Forces unit who will fight through exhaustion to keep CarmelFest Disney-clean. Squads of Trash Troopers stand united; ready at a moment’s notice to spring into action. Without hesitation, they fight the never-ending battle to make sure an innocent child does not accidentally step on a half-eaten, ant-infested elephant ear. Or that young naive Carmel family enjoying the sounds of the Wright Brothers on stage does not even know, within just feet, carelessly discarded Pepsi cups and filthy hot dog wrappers have been expertly removed for their personal safety. The Trash Trooper, usually unseen, is privately proud of the knowledge that he or she is making the world a better place. Across this great city, teachers, bankers, shopkeepers and homemakers leave their families for a two-hour shift. They proudly don their fatigues and knowingly enter a sweaty, dirty battle zone. Why do they do it? Only God knows what is in their heart. But our beloved CarmelF-

est is the victor. Sadly, there are never enough. In short supply and great demand, Trash Troopers want you! Leading his small but mighty force is Trash Trooper Commander and Head Recruiter Gary Frey. Highly decorated from previous CarmelFest battles, he says, “We have a few key positions left to fill, but let me assure you ... We are ready! There is still plenty of time to train new Trash Troopers.” Frey believes some people are just born with the instincts necessary to become a decorated Trash Trooper. “I can spot a good bend-overand-grab technique a mile away. If they have that, the rest is easy.” So, this July 3rd and 4th, defending every inch of Carmel Civic Square will be a band of loyal and dedicated freedom fighters. They have taken an oath to eliminate the ickyness from our festival. When you see them in their special uniform: salute, appreciate and wish them well. But, I strongly recommend you NOT shake their hand. God bless our Trash Troopers. To join the Trash Troopers contact Commander Gary Frey at (317) 513-8559.

The music makers

2012 Great American Songbook Hall of Fame Inductees

Cole Porter

Birthplace: Peru, Indiana Born: June 9, 1891 Died: October 15, 1964 (age 73) Famous works: “Kiss Me, Kate,” “Can-Can,”“I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” and “Let’s Do It, Let’s Fall in Love” Bio: The only Indiana native to be inducted in the first class of the Great American Songbook Hall of Fame, Cole Porter was a prolific Broadway composer. The only child of a wealthy Baptist family, Porter’s choice of music as a profession was frowned upon by his family. He wrote his first operetta at 10 years old, and his first stage musical, “See America First,” was performed in 1916. Porter is buried in Peru next to his wife, Linda Lee Thomas.

Marilyn and Alan Bergman

Birthplace: Brooklyn (both) Born: September 11, 1925 (Alan) and November 10, 1929 (Marilyn) Famous works: “How Do You Keep the Music Playing," “It Might Be You," “The Way We Were” and “The Last Time I Felt Like This” Bio: Alan and Marilyn Bergman were married in 1958 after meeting in L.A. In 1975, the couple won a Grammy Award for Song of the Year for “The Way We Were." They became the first songwriters to write three of the five songs nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song in 1983. Other accolades include an Academy Award in 1973 for “The Way We Were,” and a Golden Globe Award in 1968 for “The Windmills of Your Mind.”

The Great American Songbook inducts its first class into the hall of fame By Jordan Fischer • The Great American Songbook Hall of Fame celebrated its first four inductees last week at the Center for the Performing Arts’ 2011-12 Encore Celebration Gala, held at the Palladium. The gala was attended by several national performing artists, including Clay Aiken, Lari White and Andrea McArdie, who was the original Annie in the Broadway musical of the same name. The evening also saw a performance by Barry Manilow who, along with composers Cole Porter and Alan and Marilyn Bergman, was inducted into the first class of the Great American Song Book Hall of Fame. “It is the endurance of the song which makes it classic,” said Michael Feinstein, artistic director for the Nick Ziobro Center and founder of the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative, which seeks to preserve the works of the Great American Songbook – works identified as the best American songs of the 20th century, many of which come from Broadway and Hollywood musicals. “(Our inductees) have all made both music and history.” The gala additionally served as the culmination of the 2012 Great American Songbook High School Vocal Academy and Competition, the winner of which was 15-year-old Nick Ziobro, of Manlius, New York. Ziobro received $3,000 and will be performing with Michael Feinstein at his club, Feinstein's at the Loew's Regency. He will also serve as the youth ambassador for the Great American Songbook.

What’s next for the Songbook?

This year, the Songbook vocal academy competition drew in competitors from 11 states. By 2015, organizers hope to reach all 50, according to Karen Kelsey, interim director of the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative. “We’re going to step back after the success of this year and regroup and look where it makes sense to expand,” Kelsey said. The initiative will also continue archiving and adding to its collection. According to archivist Lisa Lobdell, the initiative’s collection includes more than 300 books, 5,000 recordings and 37,000 pieces of sheet music. It resides in two rooms on the top floor of the Palladium, totaling roughly 1,400 cubic feet, according to Lobdell. And, Lobdell said, the archives are available for viewing to anyone doing research on the Photo by Alan Petersime Songbook. “Michael has been in this business for a long time, and so people will contact him (about donations),” Kelsey said. “We have not started actively pursuing individuals yet, but we are working toward that.” Among the most recent donations is a piano which belonged to songwriter Johnny Mercer, coming on loan to the Palladium within the next few weeks. “It’s an ongoing initiative,” Kelsey said. “As people hear about us and want to donate, we accept them.” For more information about the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative, visit Great-American-Songbook-Inititative.aspx.

Barry Manilow

Current in Carmel

Born: June 17, 1943 Birthplace: Brooklyn Famous works: “Could It Be Magic,”“Mandy,”“Can’t Smile Without You" and "Copacabana" Bio: Born Barry Alan Pincus in Brooklyn in 1943, Manilow has released 29 studio albums, four live albums and 57 singles over his career. He was named Radio & Records number one adult contemporary artist, and has sold more than 80 million records worldwide. He won his first Emmy Award in 1977, and went on to win three consecutive American Music Awards for Best Pop/Rock Male Artist from 1978-1980.

Opinion Mitch would be best handling U.S. budget

Firework safety

It is our position that while fireworks are fun to both set off and watch, they are also explosives and can cause serious injury if not handled with the proper respect. As the Fourth of July approaches, we will begin to see temporary signs titled “Fireworks” occupy empty shops all over the county. We urge the patronage of these shops and the use of their products. We do, however, insist on safety being taken seriously. We understand that when it comes to fireworks, accidents happen, even when safety measures are being taken. This gives us even more reason to conduct the seemingly simple task of lighting a firework with caution and focus. Whether it is a defective fuse, misfired bottle rocket or a mortar stuck in the tube, anything can happen (especially when an adult beverage is added into the mix), as any emergency room worker can attest. We hope that everyone has a fun and safe Independence Day. If lighting fireworks, please be sure to drink responsibly (and only if of legal age) and do not be the one in your neighborhood who has the fire department join your celebration.

In short supply

Commentary by Terry Anker

The Greeks have decided to stay in the Eurozone and have agreed to continuing negotiations with their creditors to remain fiscally afloat. In elections last week, voters on the historic and blue-watered nation elected, albeit by a narrow margin, political figures who have asserted, albeit in the most tentative of ways, that they are committed to keeping Greece on the path to greater financial responsibility and reducing spending. Good news. The world’s economy has become so intertwined that the failure of one errant nation affects all the rest. Whether these newest office-holders are more successful at keeping spending in line with revenue remains to be seen. But for now, Europe, along with the U.S. markets, is resting a little easier. Would it be particularly pessimistic to believe that the Greeks politicians, like those domiciled here on our own shores, are unlikely to persevere? A recent City-County Council move by our neighbors to the south makes the point. Arguing that an array of city-funded

benefits should be expanded to a new group of employees, no discussion addressed the reality that sharing a pie with more folks means that one needs a bigger pie or will have to serve smaller pieces to each. While we can, and perhaps should, discuss who should have pie – and we can, and perhaps should, determine how much pie each should get – it is patently irresponsible to offer pie to more without in some form acknowledging that there are consequences. The Greeks, like our own humble state, must conform to the basic laws of arithmetic. If we all work less, there is less excess to share. If we all consume more, there is less excess to share. Innovation, creativity and risk can build a bigger pie – but don’t we still have to conform to the rules of supply?

With all due respect to our fine governor, Mitch Daniels, and his outstanding track record, we’re saddened to see him become the president of Purdue University. Why? It’s not because he can’t or wouldn’t make quantum fiscal leaps up in West Lafayette – that puckering sound you just heard was the faculty contemplating budget revisions – but, come on, he is exactly the man for the job in Washington, the one where he puts a stop to government taking on nonsensical debt. His blunt approach can hurt – ask anyone connected to higher education in this state – but the pain is “inflicted” for the right reasons. We hope, one day, after his stint in academia, he will pursue a post in Washington. It doesn’t seem likely, but we can hope, right? ••• And so they had a turn-away weekend earlier this month at our region’s Center for the Performing Arts. From the gala – orchestrated by Jim Austin and the centerpiece of which was the induction of Barry Manilow, Alan and Marilyn Bergman and Cole Porter into the Great American Songbook Hall of Fame as the inaugural class – to the stunning performances that night, we were perhaps more impressed with the quality of the 10 finalists at The Great American Songbook High School Competition. Each gave his or her best shot, and, ultimately, 15-year-old Nick Ziobro of Manilus, N.Y., blew away the field (and the judges) to take home first place. Kudos to the Michael Feinstein Initiative (the man, himself, along with staffers Chris Lewis and Karen Kelsey) for putting together an incredibly memorable evening.

Dos and don'ts on your big day Laughs by Danielle Wilson I’m a bossy person by nature; always have been. Some people are just born to lead or at least to tell others what to do. So, in this vein, and inspired by the wedding Doo and I recently attended, here are my dos and don’ts for the Big Day. Do put someone in charge. You don’t have to hire a wedding coordinator, but at least round up a control-freak aunt who isn’t afraid to order people around or have groomsmen hate her. The timing and details make or break a wedding; a BOS (%itch on Site) can ensure everything flows smoothly. Don’t chew gum at the altar, period. Spit. It. Out. Don’t make your attendants stand throughout the ceremony if it’s over 15 minutes. And for God’s sake, make sure they snack beforehand and know not to lock their knees. “Bridesmaid down! Bridesmaid down!” Do consider parking. The reception venue was in a downtown location, with no attached garage. We either had to drive around and wait for a street spot to open or park in a scary pay lot two blocks away under the expressway. Had I known this was an urban safari, I’d have swapped stilettos for hiking boots. Don’t make your guests wait to eat, especially if you have an evening wedding. This past weekend, the only sustenance served between

the end of the ceremony at 7:00 and the opening of the buffet at 9:15 were alcohol and lemonade. When the bride and groom finally went through the line, the rush to eat conjured images of the Titanic life-boat stampede: “Women and children first!” They should have been passing hors d’oeuvres or set up a cheese table. Better yet, they should have let us eat dinner as soon as we arrived; then no one gets wasted on cheap vodka or devours an entire eight-top’s praline favors. Do keep in mind your cleavage. If your dream dress is strapless, please make sure it comes up high enough to cover the girls. The fact that the bride did not experience a wardrobe malfunction is truly remarkable. For the comfort level of your guests, particularly those with heart conditions, consider adding straps for at least the dancing portion of the evening. They’ll make for a much less stressful evening for all! Do make it personal. The bride and groom, both physicians, choose Robert Palmer’s “Doctor, Doctor” for their first dance. Far more unique than “I Will Always Love You”! I’m sure your wedding will be beautiful, but it’ll be better if you listen to me. Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a contributing columnist.

Saying goodbye to my gallbladder Laughs by Mike Redmond I’m going through a divorce. After 57 years of peace and harmony, my gall bladder and I have decided to part ways. Well, the decision to part was all mine. I’m sure the gallbladder would have been quite content to keep going as we were, with it producing stones and churning up spasms, and me doubling over in pain every time I ate a French fry. Well, enough is enough. We aren’t getting along and somebody had to make the first move, so I called a lawyer. I mean surgeon. Well, that’s not exactly true, either. The call was really made by the emergency room, where I spent most of a recent Sunday thanks to Magnitude 5 gall bladder attack. I passed the ER time lying on my back watching basic cable television while a succession of alarmingly young doctors poked me and said “hmm.” I think I was part of a medical school field trip. I kind of had an idea of what was going to happen, though, thanks to the nurse who examined me when I first got there. “Still got your gall bladder?” she asked. “Yes,” I said. “You won’t miss it,” she said. Then the morphine kicked in and suddenly I was back in college. The ultrasound man (sounds like a superhero, doesn’t it?) was especially illuminating. After I

told him that I didn’t want to know if it was a boy or a girl, he applied his magic wand to my belly and said a word I honestly never expected to hear regarding my insides: “Sludge.” “Is that the official medical term?” I asked, attempting to joke my way out of it. “Actually, it is,” he said. “Oh, look. There’s a stone!” I guess he thought I should be happy with the discovery. So now I am off to the surgeon to see about getting my sludgy little gall bladder taken out. This seems like a better idea than (a.) just living with it or (b.) calling Roto-Rooter. Friends who have been down this path have been most encouraging. They all tell me I’ll feel better the instant the gall bladder comes out, which is exactly what I want to hear. But like any separation, this one will have its consequences. I’ll always have a hole inside that could only be filled by my gall bladder. Or should I say by the traitorous gizzard that lived with me for 57 years and then betrayed me, a sludge-producing little turncoat, the Benedict Arnold of internal organs. I just hope our divorce doesn’t affect the kids. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ or P.O. Box 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244.

Finely aged whine

Laughs by Dick Wolfsie

Mary Ellen and I have been going through some 1,600 photos we took on a recent vacation. We tried to identify as many of the people we met on the trip as we could. One gentleman we were sitting next to really stumped us. He looked familiar and was very distinctively dressed, but we couldn’t remember his name or where we took the picture. It turned out to be King Wencenslas, and we were at a wax museum in Czechoslovakia. Looking at that photo, I couldn’t help but comment to Mary Ellen that I thought I looked pretty good for my age, maybe 10 years younger than my actual 65 years. My wife agreed completely, and then she skipped to the next photo. “Who’s the old man gobbling down that giant German sausage?” I asked. “That old man would be you.” “That can’t be. That guy looks 85.” “You just didn’t take a very good picture that day.” “For the record, you took the picture. And you’re saying that between Prague and Budapest, I went from looking like we were recently wed, to looking like I was nearly dead? In the Prague photos I have hair. In the Budapest pics I have hairs." “First of all, always be aware of what else is in the photo. When you were next to that attractive young waiter in Vienna, that made you look old in comparison.” “I see, Mary Ellen. So is that why you always 14 | June 26, 2012

stood in front of 600-year-old castles?” “It’s also about lighting, camera angle and the colors you are wearing. And, of course, the number of pixels – whatever that means. For example, in our house you look much younger and more attractive in the kitchen lighting than the bedroom lighting – sorry, that was an unfortunate example.” One thing I’ve noticed is that I appear a lot younger when I look in my bathroom mirror. I asked Ellen why. “Simple,” she said. “In your bathroom, two of the bulbs are usually burned out and the mirror is always foggy. Peering at yourself through those conditions covers a multitude of sins.” “So which one is the actual me? What do I truly look like?” “I would say, Dick, that when you first get out of bed in the morning, walk under the skylight, and stagger to the bathroom, that’s what you really look like.” “And the same for you, correct?” “Heavens, no. The real me is: AFBL.” “AFBL?” “Yes: After Foundation, Blush and Lipstick.” As we took our evening walk the other night, a neighbor remarked that I looked tired and asked if I was under the weather. “No, he’s fine,” said Mary Ellen. “He’s just under a streetlamp.” Dick Wolfsie is an author, columnist, and speaker.

(Above left) Blueberry-glazed barbecue ribs feature an interesting twist on a classic summer entree. (Above right) Grilled nectarines can make an excellent appetizer or exciting dessert. (Submitted photos)

With the heat in full swing, it is time to get out the grill and start cooking By Christian Sorrell • The warm middle months of the year mean different things to different people: outdoor sports, concerts, farmers markets and festivals all across Indiana. For most of us out there, it also means grilling, especially with America’s unofficial cookout holiday of the year, July 4, quickly approaching. We have assembled two unique recipes that will help integrate the fruitiness of summer into your grilling repertoire and keep you from boring your friends and family with dreary hamburgers and lackluster hot dogs. Grilled Nectarines with Mascarpone Cream Ingredients: 1/3 cup mascarpone cheese, 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt, 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon, 4 nectarines, 1 tablespoon canola oil, 8 teaspoons balsamic glaze or honey, 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted

Directions: Preheat grill to medium-high. Combine mascarpone, yogurt, sugar and 1 teaspoon tarragon in a medium bowl. Refrigerate. Cut nectarines in half and scoop out the pits. Brush cut sides with oil. Oil grill rack. Grill nectarines cutside down until softened and beginning to brown. Divide nectarines among eight plates. Fill each half with 1 tablespoon of mascarpone mixture and drizzle with 1 teaspoon balsamic glaze or honey. Top with almonds and chopped tarragon. Tips: When grilling fragile foods that you don’t want to stick, oiling the grill rack is essential. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. Remember to never use cooking spray on a hot grill! Blueberry-glazed Barbecue Ribs Ingredients: 4 cups water, 4 pounds countrystyle pork ribs, 2 pints fresh blueberries, 1 medium onion, thinly sliced, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger root, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/2 tea-

spoon coarsely ground pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt Directions: Bring water to full boil in 6-quart saucepan. Add ribs. Cook over medium-high heat until ribs are fork tender (about 20 to 25 minutes). Meanwhile, heat gas grill on medium. Place all remaining ingredients in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until flavors are blended (about 12 to 15 minutes). Place ribs on grill. Baste with blueberry sauce. Grill, basting and turning occasionally, until ribs are fork tender (about 20 to 25 minutes). Cook remaining blueberry sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Serve sauce over ribs.

For more great recipes for both the grill and the kitchen, be sure to visit recipes and keep reading Night & Day throughout the summer for one new recipe each and every week!

Yellow Brick Road leads to Beef & Boards for local ‘munchkins’


Indiana Child Support Statute Changes

By Patricia Rettig • Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre’s current production of “The Wizard of Oz” offers four local young thespians a rare opportunity to make Munchkinland a reality. They were chosen from more than 100 central Indiana children who auditioned for the limited number of roles. “I have loved the movie and the music since I was little,” remarked Madison Moll, who will attend Hamilton Southeastern Junior High this fall. This is the 11th production for 11-year-old Madison. “I like being able to play a character and be someone different than who I am,” she said. For 10-year-old Sydney Grace Johnson of Fishers, performing doesn’t require a stage. “I love choreographing performances for the neighborhood with my friends,” the Sand Creek Intermediate student said. And Sydney has no plans to stop. “(I want to) obtain a theater/ dance degree at IU – and be famous!” Sharing her fellow Munchkins’ love of performing is Kendall Greene, 10, a student at College Wood Elementary. “I love being in front of people and being on stage,” she said. When not on stage, she’s a dance student at Performer’s Edge in Carmel, and a competitive gymnast at Deveau’s in Fishers. Sydney Greene, a student at Carmel Middle School who also takes dance at Performer’s Edge, would like to become a professional

Are you aware of the upcoming changes in Indiana child support statutes that may affect child support payments and your child’s eligibility for educational support? Effective July 1, 2012, Public Law 111-2012 will change a child’s presumptive age for termination of child support from twenty-one to nineteen. The law also amends the time frame in which a child may seek educational support, affecting children in the 18-21 age range who may need educational support or may soon lose their eligibility for support. Parents with previous support orders may want to revisit the issue if the order does not explicitly refer to “educational support.”

Performing as Munchkins in “The Wizard of Oz” are Kendall Greene (front), Carmel; (back row, from left) Sydney Johnson, Fishers; Sydney Greene, Carmel; and Madison Moll, Fishers. singer or actor. Excited to perform in her first theatrical production, Sydney said she loved the movie, “The Wizard of Oz” and its lesson: There’s no place like home. On stage at Beef & Boards through July 15, “The Wizard of Oz” offers a $10 discount on tickets for kids ages 3 to 15. Tickets range from $37 to $60 and include a familyfriendly buffet. For reservations, call the box office at 872-9664. For more information, visit

All parents should consider seeking legal advice prior to terminating their support obligations when their child turns nineteen. Although many parents’ duties to pay child support will end when their child turns nineteen, a parent who fails to pay support that is owed risks a finding of contempt and possible criminal sanctions. Also, if you have additional children subject to a child support order, you will likely need to modify your child support obligation upon the emancipation of your nineteen year old. Our firm is committed to providing clients with personalized service and updating parents on changes in Indiana law that may affect their interests and their children. We encourage parents who believe that their child may be affected to contact counsel and assess whether action is necessary before Public Law 111-2012 becomes effective July 1, 2012. Please contact Harden Jackson Law at 317-569-0770 or for more information about the changes in Indiana's Parenting Guidelines. The above is for informational purposes only should not be considered legal advice. Each case is unique and you should consult an attorney for advice regarding your particular situation.

Salute to senior service Noblesville woman honored as Indiana’s top senior volunteer By Jordan Fischer • Noblesville resident Patricia Rew was honored this month as Indiana’s most outstanding senior volunteer by Home Instead Senior Care. The 70-year-old volunteer was selected to receive the Salute to Senior Service award for her “dedicated community service,” including her work at Agapé Therapeutic Riding Resources, Inc., located in Cicero. “Patricia is a valued member of the community and a senior hero to many,” said Jeff Huber, president and chief operating officer of Home Instead, Inc. “She has shown that volunteer opportunities for older adults should not diminish because of age. Seniors such as Patricia are making important contributions to their communities through charities, nonprofit organizations and faith communities.” Agapé provides horses, equipment, facilities and helpers for more than 800 riders with physical, mental or emotional challenges and also at-risk youth. Rew’s duties include assisting each rider and helping to guide the horse around the indoor arena and on wooded trails. She also provides expertise in event coordination, fundraising and artistic abilities. Volunteerism has been a constant for Rew since her teen years. Her service extends into the Agapé Literacy Program; The Cowgirls of Agapé; Helping Hands of Agapé; Breakfast for the Barn; Par for the Horse Golf Outing; volunteer fairs at local high schools and churches; and Agapé’s Miniature Horse Program.

Rew, right, receives her award.

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 Vol. 2, No. 1 with our special needs riders, able to make each one feel loved and appreciated for their individuality. She helps them enjoy a great experience while they are here, they have fun and at the same time learn and improve their capabilities. It is not always easy volunteering with horses and a special needs population – there are the physical challenges, hot weather, mosquitoes, cold weather, the occasional horse hoof stepping on a foot, a rider grabbing or pinching a volunteer. It never phases Pat, she keeps coming back and she keeps smiling through it all, and then asks, ‘Is there anything else I can do?’” As a state winner, Rew was considered for the national Salute to Senior Service award. The national award was presented to Clark Paradise of Lakewood, NJ, who was honored for his work with Your Grandmother’s Cupboard, a nonprofit organization he and his wife founded to meet the needs of the thousands of homeless families throughout New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania. For more information about Rew or the Salute to Senior Service award, visit

“There are no words to describe the dedication Pat has for Agapé,” wrote Katrina Brown, a therapeutic riding and horsemanship instructor at Agapé, on Rew’s nominee profile (which can be found online at www.salutetoseniorservice. com). “Pat is a ‘go to’ woman in our organization. She is always willing to stay late to get the job done and does so with such joy in her heart! She is wonderful with the students, families, and volunteers/staff. She is constantly honing her skills and broadening her education to give more at Agapé. I am so proud to work with Pat and watch her touch so many lives!” According to Chris Sorenson, program coordinator for Agapé, it’s “a pleasure to work with Pat Rew! She comes here with a radiant smile and a heart of gold. She has a gift of working

Body Beauty

Botox for headaches? Commentary by Dr. Barry Eppley Q: I have had frontal headaches for about 10 years. A low-dose Botox injection cut the pain of my headache from a nine to about a five for seven weeks. Then last week, I was back to a nine again. Is there a procedure for more permanent relief? If so, do you think insurance will cover it? A: You might have had more significant migraine relief with a higher dose of Botox. Three months or so is a fairly standard period of time for the duration of Botox’s effects. If Botox is effective in the supraorbital area for migraine reduction, then surgical decompression of the supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves should provide similar (and hopefully greater) and more sustained relief than the injections. This is done through an endoscopic technique from small incisions in the scalp behind the hairline. Generally, 70 percent of patients will have a noticeable and sustained reduction in the frequency and severity of their headaches with surgical nerve decompression. The remaining 30 percent is a mixture between those who are “cured” and those who saw limited to no benefit. Insurance is very strict about not covering migraine decompression surgery. They have a hard-line stance that it is still “experimental.” There is a lot of published information from studies on the effectiveness of migraine surgery, but this has not swayed their stance.

Q: I have had three c-sections, bowel obstruction surgery, hernia surgery and a hysterectomy. I’m wondering if getting a tummy tuck would be possible for me. Also, would I be a viable candidate for the insurance to cover this procedure? A: It would be impossible for me to say whether you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck based on your complex abdominal surgical history alone. However, I have seen many patients with similar histories, and they all were perfectly good candidates for tummy tuck surgery. So based on your information alone, I would assume that you would be a reasonable candidate. One of the very good benefits of a tummy tuck in patients with complex abdominal surgeries is that many of the abdominal scars as well as the loose skin and fat can be removed and traded for one single horizontal scar placed low on the abdomen. Often, one gets a simultaneous pubic lift as well. Insurance does not cover this, nor do we attempt to process it for elective cosmetic tummy tucks. While you have a complex abdominal history and likely numerous contour deformities from them, these are still cosmetic and not functional issues.

Four years of confidence Commentary by David Cain

sion and generally defer things. So when you see people that know what they want and create a path to it, it is intoxicating. They attract others, they become leaders and they find success. I thought about this during a client meeting, too. It seems in a service business each relationship is different and requires a unique and custom approach. However, having a basic system or process for that unique approach creates confidence – confidence from you and confidence in you for your customer. If you don’t have a basic process for your custom approach, you meander around with indecision and eventually their belief in your ability wanes. Confidence, after all, isn’t about knowing all the answers; it’s knowing how to answer all the questions.

My youngest daughter at only 4 years old has developed quite an imagination. At least that’s what most people would say. I’d say she’s confident. She makes decisions and offers opinions without hesitation. She reviews a picture in a book, ignores the text beneath and tells a story of exactly what she believes the characters are doing. She always has a decision, a direction and an opinion of what everyone should do or not do. And, at only 4 years old, I can see her starting to lead the entire family. She’s reminding me how important confidence can be, how persuasive it can be and how intoxicating it is. I should have learned all this from dating. I remember being young and picking up my date. The first couple of dates I always had a plan of what we were doing. After you get comfortable, it began the dance of “What do you want to do?” answered with “I don’t care, what do you want to do?” and the decisions lumbered along. It happens all the time; people create indeci-

The data tells a story

Commentary by CJ McClanahan

One of my first clients sold farm equipment throughout central Indiana. During one of our first meetings, I asked him where he made the most money. He was 100 percent certain that almost all of his profit came from selling the big machines. This business had focused on the sale of these machines for 40-plus years and won many national sales contests. After reviewing his financial results for a three-year period, I soon realized that nearly all of his profit came from servicing equipment. He made very little profit from machine sales. The data always tells a compelling story if you pay attention. Unfortunately, very few people have the patience to analyze the data and would rather rely on their “gut,” which delivers a quicker response. The problem is that this response is driven by emotion and is often incorrect. Trusting your immediate emotionally driven instincts is acceptable, in fact even preferable, if you are being chased by a bear in the wilderness or getting your family in the basement if a tornado is coming down your street. However, in business, I’d advise you to start paying close attention to the data. If you don’t, you may get lucky every now and then and hit a home run, but I promise you won’t make it to the World Series. Seri-

ous, sustained business success is built on a foundation of sound information. If you doubt me, you probably just landed a big deal because your neighbor was related to the CFO of a great prospect. I wouldn’t recommend building a business model around the relatives of the people in your cul-de-sac. Instead, you need to pay attention to a handful of key performance indicators (KPIs) that drive every business in the world. Let’s start with marketing, which I define as anything you do to get a prospect interested in your product/service. You can measure the success of your marketing by tracking a handful of KPIs. First, how many prospects did you attract? Second, how many of those prospects were a good fit for your product/ service? Lastly, how much did it cost to generate each qualified prospect? Track your marketing, sales, service and financial KPIs on a monthly basis, and you will instantly understand the health of your business. As with most things, the solution is simple. All you need is execute.

Balancing the Gospel Commentary by Bob Walters A few years ago I had a short-term business acquaintance who had grown up in the evangelical church, had experienced both financial success and failure in secular endeavors and was a confessing believer in Christ. As we were parting company – our business models plainly not matching up – he assured me that I was too serious about my faith; that my life needed “balance.” My heart was buoyed as I went out the door realizing “He could tell. I am serious about it.” People who know me well know I am not the in-your-face, street-corner shouting, judgment spouting, Holy-Roller type. But people who know me really, really well know that I no longer try to balance my life between God and Caesar. I try to balance my life in the Gospel, which is challenge enough. Everyone knows of the brilliant but vexing answer Jesus gave to the Pharisees who were trying to trick Him into committing blasphemy or treason regarding Roman tax: “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s” (Matthew 22:21). Jesus isn’t telling the Pharisees, or us, to balance life between the Gospel truth and secular expediency; He’s saying it is critical to know the difference. God’s spoken commission to Jesus was “all things” (Matthew 11:27, Luke 10:22), not

“some things.” The Gospel is the totality of God’s truth, not the balance of man’s opinions. A faithful life in Christ cannot be a fraction or a ratio; it must be a whole. Pastor Matt Chandler in his recent book “The Explicit Gospel” makes point after excellent point about the existence of both completeness and balance within the Gospel. Too often, he charges, preachers preach an imbalanced Gospel of all works, all missions, all study or all whatever. Chandler says that approach is all wrong. The Gospel is something at once totally personal and totally universal. That’s what must be balanced. Chandler crafts a clever, clear, coherent and compelling – what we call in church, convicting – case for learning and living the whole Gospel. What is the Gospel? Well, if you look closely, it’s the entire Bible and the complex truth of God’s love. It is the unique person of Jesus Christ, divine and human, who authors and restores our eternal relationship with God the Father. It is the Holy Spirit, who lights our path to God with mercy, knowledge, comfort and peace. On balance, the Gospel is the most important thing we can know. Bob Walters (, who publishes an old column free every Friday at www.commonchristianity., muses: When faith feels like a high-wire act, we’re balancing the wrong things.

Commentary • By Don Knebel

Saving Grace

I am hard pressed to imagine a less likely place to find an image of the state flag of Indiana than in the stained glass windows behind the High Altar of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. But there it is, along with other states’, reflecting the great affection the English have for Americans. On a recent trip to London, I made the obligatory trip to St. Paul’s, the masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren designed in the late 1600s. As every English school child knows, as the city burned during the bombing of December 1940, ordinary people saved the cathedral by going to the roof, dousing fires and throwing incendiary devices to the ground. Unlike most visitors to St. Paul’s, who stop in front of the High Altar to admire the magnificent stained glass windows behind it, I was taken behind the altar, where large lettering on the floor following the curve of the east apse says: “To the American dead of the Second World War from the People of Britain.” When the British people rebuilt the bomb-damaged altar area, they created the “American War Chapel” to show their gratitude for American sacrifice during the war. On the altar windows, arranged around images reflecting the sacrifice of Jesus, are dozens of symbols of the land and the people of the United States. A 500-page book near the altar contains, in alphabetical order,

the names of the 28,000 Americans killed while stationed in Britain or traveling to it. Each day, the glass-covered book is turned to a different page. While visiting London, it is easy for most Americans to recognize how much of the best of their culture and values the British people passed on to us. From time to time, it is worth thinking

about that gift and being grateful for it.

Securely deleting flash media Commentary by Ken Colburn

How can I securely erase the data from a flash drive or camera card? - Morris Erasing electronically stored data in a manner that makes it unrecoverable requires much more than simply using the delete function on your computer. Most folks understand that moving files to the Recycle Bin or Trash simply moves the file, but does not delete it. What most folks don’t understand is that when you delete the files from the Recycle Bin or Trash, they still exist. The delete function on most operating systems simply removes the ‘file pointer’ and marks the file as ‘OK to overwrite’ but leaves the actual file intact. Think of it as erasing the entry in the table of contents of a book but not actually tearing the page out; the reference to the info is gone, but not the actual info. This quick and dirty process of ‘deleting’ is incorporated for performance reasons. If the computer actually removed the file and scrubbed the area clean, it would take far too long.

To securely erase a file requires that the space occupied by the file be overwritten multiple times. At the very least, it needs to be overwritten at some level so that a simple ‘undelete’ utility can’t bring it back to life with the click of a mouse. It’s also assumed that over time, regular use of the computer (adding programs, saving new files, defragmenting, etc.) will slowly cover the tracks of the files that were marked for deletion. The reality is this is a very random process; our data recovery and data forensics labs recover data every day that was thought to have been deleted long ago, so if it’s important, you need to do more. If you really want to make sure that no one can ever gain access to the files without an extraordinary effort, you will need to use a special utility designed to repeatedly overwrite the entire device. There are many utilities designed to do this for traditional magnetic hard drives, but most of them don’t work properly with flash media such as that found in USB drives, camera cards, hybrid or solid state drives. For those types of media you can use a free

utility from called Disk Wipe. WARNING: The results of using this utility are irreversible and will remove ALL data on a device. It should be used with extreme caution! Disk Wipe gives you the option to wipe the device and leave it blank or overwrite it with random data, and it allows you to choose how many passes you want to make. The more passes you make, the more secure the deletion. Department of Defense protocols often call for 100 passes, but you should be just fine with 20 to 30 (unless you are a double agent or international spy). This utility is for Windows only and does require you to be an administrator on the computer that you are running it on or you won’t be given access to the wipe anything. If you aren’t sure you are set up as an administrator, you can right-click on the diskwipe.exe file and tell Windows (Vista or 7) to ‘Run as administrator’. If you are asked for a password and your password doesn’t work, you will know that you don’t have administrator rights and need to contact whoever set up the computer.

The decay of perfection Commentary by Mike Colaw The other day we were sitting together as a family, and my younger two kids were talking about how great Dad is. My oldest said something like this, “Dad isn’t great, I heard him say a bad word.” Well, there it was, that moment when I realized I wasn’t “the best” anymore to my son. Honestly, I don’t remember what I said or when I said it. Don’t worry, it probably wasn’t that bad of a word. I thought about defending myself, asking what it was specifically so I could tell him that it isn’t a great word, but it really isn’t a “bad” word. Instead of trying to prove my perfection, I sat him down and admitted my faults. I told him he was right, I'm not perfect, and I do make mistakes. I asked for his forgiveness and told him I also want to show him how to respond when he makes mistakes. Even in my failures I can demonstrate right actions. The guidelines for life in the Bible are clear, yet no one is perfect, so I guess a great parent should not only strive to do right, but strive also to demonstrate how to make corrections when the mistakes inevitably come. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:23-24 ESV)

Somewhere in the intersection of perfection and humble correction, I can demonstrate what it means to be a Godly parent. So as my children, one by one, realize my faults and my weaknesses, they will realize I am not the strongest dad, nor the smartest, honestly I am not even sure I am a good dad sometimes! So as they grow and their perception of my life puts me smack dab in the middle of mediocre, I pray they will see what a great dad should look like – someone who is willing to be corrected. So what will you do? I challenge you not to perfection, but to make mid-stream corrections and teach them how to do the same. Say sorry, admit when you’re wrong, ask for forgiveness, man up and show your kids how they truly should walk through life.  Now that’s a good dad. Acts 2:38, “And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’” Mike Colaw is the director of ministries at Trinity Church.

Gardeners grow up with vines Commentary by Holly Lindzy

watch bloom, as the huge white moonflower opens at the same time every evening. No place for a vine to climb? I doubt that! A simple trellis will suffice or bamboo stakes found in any garden center and some twine does the trick for a natural look. You can even grow your vines up tall sunflowers! No excuses! Have some fun with your challenging spaces and grow up this season. It’s not too late – there’s a long summer ahead of us. And maybe giggle like a kid doing it. Happy climbing!

Gardening can be a challenge regardless of your living situation. Farmers battle droughts, suburbanites combat rocky soils and apartment dwellers are space challenged. It can be frustrating, indeed but I have two words for you . . . grow up! Literally – I’m talking about growing vines! Living in an old house in town, I’m space challenged. Definitely the highlight of the house is the spacious front porch – a dream to sit on in the rain but no place to dig up a garden bed. Obviously. Luckily, I’ve always been fond of container gardening. The soil is just right, they’re easy to water and you can move them around to highlight something in particular. And I have railing and posts that scream for scrambling vines, so I stick a few seeds in the containers on my porch to cover them. It’s always a show stopper. They’re easy enough to grow but hard to find in the nurseries, so it just makes seed shopping all the more fun. My absolute favorite? The uncommonly planted hyacinth bean vine, Container gardening can be a good solution for a variety of gardening woes. which is stunning from flower to fruit – big leafy stems of purple flowers followed by shiny purple seed pods in the fall – it’s so great I almost hate to share my secret Holly Lindzy is an Indiana accredited about it. horticulturalist and advanced master I’ve also planted morning glories with gardener residing in Noblesville. moonflower to have flowers all hours of Email your gardening woes (or wisdom) to the day.

New master bath with custom closet Commentary by Larry Greene

Original bathroom: This home is located in the Woodacre subdivision on the west side of Indianapolis. The homeowners built the house in 1990 and now that they are empty nesters, they are slowly remodeling the whole house to get it ready for eventual sale. They had already remodeled the kitchen so the master bath was next. New skeek tub: The owners commented, "The bathroom had a huge garden tub, and I like the sleek look of the new one. After having a garden tub for years, I wanted something different. The glass block behind the tub was a last minute change. I was having trouble finding a window treatment that I liked, and my designer suggested the glass block. We did not choose the most popular style. We did not have to be too concerned with the amount of light the glass block let in because we also have a skylight. We were able to choose the glass style even though it did not let in as much light as other styles. We also found that replacing the windows and get32 | June 26, 2012

ting new window treatments was actually going to cost more than the glass block." Husband & wife decision making: The owners worked together with the design team on the selection of the materials. "My husband was in charge of the shower and I focused on the vanity areas. I wanted the vanity tops to be granite, but I did not want them to look like a kitchen, so that led me to my color choice. The plumbing fixtures were chosen to be sleek and modern." New closet space: The homeowners noted, "My favorite part of the remodel is the closet. The old one had a loft that felt very dark and closed. Now the closet is bright and new, and I can see everything. We have many more shelves and the space has been opened up. It helped me organize my things." Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a full-service design/build firm serving Hamilton County. Contact him at lgreene@
