OUR TAKES Is our position that the Indiana Supreme Court acted wisely, consistently with Indiana law, and in the best public interest in overturning the decision of Judge William Hughes in the annexation case between the City of Carmel and residents of West Clay Township. Since time immemorial, fiefdoms have attempted to remain independent from the larger political structure. Eventually families become tribes. Tribes become villages and so on. In the 1870s, a visionary created a community known as Central Indiana’s first suburb — Woodruff Place. For decades, that tiny community of wealthy and powerful families resisted annexation by the City of Indianapolis.

As political, social and economic changes affected our region, many of the spectacular homes had become blighted. Many residents were eager for annexation. Did these residents fight annexation because of taxation, civic pride or just plain obstinance? It is virtually impossible for newly urbanizing areas to operate successfully over the long-term without the sustaining force of a local municipal authority. While we’re empathetic with the desire to be self-determining, we are pragmatic in our assessment that such a desire for independence is not realistic and probably never has been.

Carmel Redevelopment Commission. It is our position that this community is well served by the Carmel Redevelopment Commission (CRC). At our border, Indianapolis has been supported by the Capital Improvement Board (CIB). That board was responsible for much of the rejuvenation that has occurred over the last 35 years. Through the tireless efforts of countless community and government leaders, the CIB has been involved in most major redevelopment projects — of late, noted projects have included partnerships with Simon to build Circle Centre mall and with state government to build Lucas Oil stadium. Absent this quasi-governmental group, many

of the projects that citizens of Central Indiana now take for granted would not have occurred. In our fine town, the CRC is redeveloping Old Town with its sights set on keeping Carmel strong for the next 100 years. We all have responsibility to ensure that these groups act as good stewards of taxpayer’s money, but also to support initiatives to improve and build our community. Redevelopment commissions often fill the gap between desired redevelopment projects and conservative private investment. While it is perhaps unfortunate that there is a gap, we are pleased that our community is served by an organization so adept at accomplishing this mission.

ver these many months of communicating through this column with our fine city, the response from our friends and neighbors has been most interesting. Someone once mentioned in an e-mail that they were reconsidering their loathing of cellular phone use in automobiles when I talked about dispensing with return business calls so that I could hit the basketball court with my young sons as soon as I got home. Others have commented about their personal joys and tribulations with neighborhood associations. My favorites were the ones that found commonality in the things printed here about family and children and life. Terry But recently, I was contacted by a reader who was applauding my desire to reiterate the value of being a gracious winner; but they emphasized that sometimes the “lack of class” award goes to the loser. And, I think she was right. While I have a tendency to give the loser a break, it seems in today’s world of limitless court appeals, and angry divorce settlements that some people are just plain sore losers. In my estimation, they fall into a few clear types. There is a sore loser that operates under the mantra that if “if I’m losing you must be cheating.” The Paranoid operates under the delusion that their failures are best attributed to some nefarious action on the part of the winning team. They rant about grand conspiracies and secret societies. They value themselves so highly as to believe that the world regularly meets to intercede against them. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the time. The Victim is second on my list. The Victims often lose before they start. They believe that they were preordained by God — or by

circumstance — or by nationality — or by poverty — or by any other number of things — to fail. They convince themselves not to enter the race because “there is no chance that they can be successful.” The playing field is not level. It’s tragic really, because many of these types of sore losers engender that same mindset in their progeny and create a belief that if “I am not advantaged by the system, I am disadvantaged.” Third and finally is the Angryman sore loser. This guy is at the sixth-grade softball game yelling and screaming at other parents, at coaches and, most embarrassingly, at his own deeply embarrassed and probably traumatized child. Angry-man is frustrated by his own failures. Perhaps that job in Anker middle management has broken his spirit. Perhaps he is living with his own personal letdowns — a bad decision — an unfortunate circumstance — a long-passed slight on Christmas in 1963. For whatever reason, Angry-man couldn’t (or wouldn’t) move on. And he carries this baggage with him to everyone whom he touches. Wouldn’t it be interesting if we carried our emotional baggage in a more tangible way? I wonder if we wouldn’t better learn how to drop our longtime feud with that irritating sibling to whom everything just seemed to come easy if we had to carry a brick-filled knapsack instead of a grudge. What if our blame for our spouse’s final job-demanded move that separated us from our best friends and family was instead a 40-pound iron weight? I’d bet that Paranoid, Victim and Angry-man would all find a way to get over it. Or at least, they’d lose a little weight. Terry Anker is a Carmel resident and business man.

It was a mighty ascent, one fueled by equal parts passion, stupidity, fear and drive. We once viewed the summit as something unattainable. But we summoned the inner fire and made a commitment that we would never — NEVER — back down. When we reached the apex, we planted our little flag, did our little celebration dance, and then we got back to work. We had conquered our Everest. What we’re talking about, of course, is being dragged into the 21st century. That means we have a new Web site, one which we’re tremendously proud to share with the community and also one for which we took our combined knowledge of such tools and the technology attendant to them and did the only logical thing. We screamed, “Hellllllllllp!” Out of the darkness ventured David Cain and his fine crew at Media Sauce up at Guilford and Main. “Relax,” they told us. “We do this for a living.” Do they ever! The site —, in case you couldn’t guess — is far more interactive than our previous, stand-in site. It gives you a better gateway to us on many fronts. And you know what? The best thing about it that the Media Sauce folks followed our lone worthwhile suggestion: Don’t make this look like a newspaper Web site. So, they didn’t. They also (cough) politely excused us from project direction on this one, understanding that we had more important — VERY important — and worldly pursuits on the platter, such as trouble-shooting why Brian’s printer wasn’t working (we added paper, so it’s just fine now, thank you). Seriously, take a cruise around it and see

Editor: I couldn’t agree more with Michelle Stone on the subject of Danielle Wilson’s “frou-frou” chatter. What we don’t need is validation of the image of Carmel women as pampered princesses, flitting around in their Escalades from soccer game to tanning salon. However, the column does fit into the format of Current in Carmel. I’m also on the verge of tossing it (into the recycle box, of course).

Editor: I am a mom of four young children, and it’s very rare that I get to enjoy a good read. So imagine my disappointment when I received this week’s edition – and my very favorite read was absent – boo hiss! It always makes my Tuesday when I get to have a good laugh – so please, do me a huge favor – and keep Danielle Wilson’s articles coming!

I’m not happy with the body God gave me, darn it, and I don’t see anything wrong with utilizing the techniques and talents that God gave plastic surgeons. So I consulted two separate local physicians and, in addition to being mortally embarrassed during the “photograph your deformities” sessions, found out all there is to know about breast augmentation and abdominoplasty. Both docs were confident that they could remove all of the extra skin and most of the stretch marks, and tighten my abdominal wall enough so that I could wear a bikini. They also both agreed that my body type and proportions would look good with full-B to small-C size breasts. For the tummy tuck, both emphasized the importance of allowing four to six weeks recovery time with no heavy lifting or vigorous exercise. Sounds like fun, huh? So much, in fact, that I have yet to take the plunge, partly because I don’t have an extra 10 grand lying around and partly because I can’t find the time to take off from being a mom of small children. I’m also afraid I might die on the table, and how stupid would I feel if I kicked it because of a surgery I didn’t need? But after having seen my sister’s lovely new breasts again this past weekend, I can say with the utmost certainty that I will be buying that skimpy bikini some day very soon. You know I’ll keep you posted! Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at Danielle@


ld Glory ... The Stars and Stripes. A sacred emblem of our nation. Throughout history, men and women have sacrificed blood and sorrow for this simple piece of cloth. But of course we all know it’s not just a simple piece of cloth; it’s a symbol, an enduring sign of our great nation and all that we stand for. To me, it represents the spirit I so often write about in this column. Many civic-minded clubs and organizations in Carmel start every meeting by saying the Pledge of Allegiance. It is not necessary to provide Jeff Worrell cards printed with CarmelCan! the words, or to post them at the front of the room for all to follow along. For the pledge is known by heart. Although we may not think about every word each time we

recite the pledge, it is embedded in our memory and if we really think about it, it is actually quite dear to us. It has long been a tradition in our country that boys and girls across our land join each morning at school and recite a pledge that promises loyalty to the United States. Maybe some of you have such memories of standing by your desk, facing the blackboard with the alphabet neatly arranged above, stretching from one end of the board to the other. In the corner of the room, up high, the American flag hangs majestically as if waiting for the next salute. My hope for the generation of children who dutifully pledge allegiance to our country is that they will grow to appreciate its deeper meaning and live it. That they will see the “can do” spirit of the generations that have come before them, and yearn to imitate it. That the children of our community will instinctively believe it is important to do for your country, rather than ask your country to do for you.

Our children do not have to look to far off places for examples of the “can do” American spirit. The college students who paint and landscape, and the business that donates the supplies for the home of a family stricken with cancer set an example that is clear to follow. The individuals that decide to start a free medical clinic, a food pantry, a shelter for the abused, or a home for unwed mothers shout “can do” by their actions. The hundreds of volunteers that walk or run or dance or read, to cure a disease point the way to a better society. Or the young men and women from our community protecting us overseas in our armed forces. Much has been endured by many over the years to keep the flag waving. Don’t block the breeze. Jeff Worrell is a local business owner. He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on Cable Channel 16. Contact him at jworrell@

An $800,000 shortfall in revenue since 2002 is causing the Carmel Clay Public Library to consider cutting back staff positions through attribution and buying fewer bestsellers. With the prices of books going up every year and extra amenities, such as access to the Internet and other media sources that many libraries don’t offer, the library is seeking sources for the money that is necessary to keep up a first-class library. “We have enough to offer a base level of service, but the amount of tax money we have coming in won’t suffice that for long,” Library Director Wendy Phillips said.

The Indiana Supreme Court last week ruled 5-0 in favor of the City of Carmel annexing the southwest portion of Clay Township. This ruling honors an agreement made on Sept. 6, 2005 between the No Ordinance for Annexation (NOAX) group and the City of Carmel. The ruling overturns a trial court’s ruling that Carmel’s original plan was “too vague.” “This is a landmark decision that can guide remonstrators with future annexations,” Mayor Jim Brainard said. The City of Carmel is allowing the residents to pay 25 percent of their municipal property tax for the first year and increased 25 percent every year until they are paying the full amount of their property tax. “A majority of the people in Clay Township voted in favor of this annexation,” Brainard said. According to Brainard, plans to annex the Home Place area will now be set in motion. Past attempts to annex the area were put on hold to wait for the Indiana Supreme Court’s decision concerning the southwest corner of Clay Township.

By Douglas Haney, Esq. ITEM: Protecting our citizen soldiers (Part II) BACKGROUND: Federal law provides many job protections to our citizen soldiers. However, it does not take into account the disruption deployment has on a servicemember’s family. A new Indiana law takes a step in that direction. NEW LAW: On July 1, 2007, the Indiana Military Family Leave Act (MFLA) took effect. Modeled after the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, the MFLA generally permits employees who are “family members” of servicemembers on active duty to annually take 10 total days of unpaid leave (1) within the 30-day period before a servicemember begins his/ her active duty; (2) while the service member is on active duty; and/or, (3) during the 30-day period following the servicemember’s return from active duty. This new law applies to employers that employ at least 50 employees and to employees who have been employed for at least 12 months and 1,500 hours during the 12-month period immediately preceding the

day their MFLA leave begins. “Family members” are defined as spouses, parents, grandparents and siblings of servicemembers. The MFLA also protects an employee’s job while he/she is on military leave. The employee can continue healthcare benefits (at his/her expense) while on military leave and, upon return to work, must, absent unique circumstances, be returned to the same job position or to one with equal seniority, pay, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment. Finally, the MFLA imposes obligations on employees desiring to use it. In general, they must give their employer written notice of a MFLA leave request at least 30 days prior to its starting date.

any organizations have a person or team dedicated to creating and maintaining a positive public image. This public relations (PR) function includes promoting a company’s successes, managing crises, putting a positive spin on failures, generating press, and basically raising awareness of the company. Historically, the PR function was achieved through relationships with the press as this was the primary channel through which a company could “manageâ€? a story. In recent years, PR has gone online and there are new David Cain ways to generate that On Marketing positive public image for your business. It is estimated that more than 75 percent of journalists use search engines (like Google) to ďŹ nd resources for news stories.

meaning simply that journalists and readers alike are increasingly using online resources to ďŹ nd, generate and read news. It’s interactive because you can interact with the story — post a comment, leave feedback, blog about the story, or simply forward the story to someone else. In any case, the Internet has fundamentally changed how a company creates and maintains its public image. And think of this: Within minutes of any major failure of a company (any potential crisis) the news is already online. Interactive PR is deeper than just news stories being delivered online. If most journalists use the Internet to research stories, then it makes sense that most stories originate online. Imagine how companies could leverage the Internet to create their own stories. They could write their own stories about their successes and post them online — in blogs, on their Web site, anywhere.

The desirable lot on the end of a cul-de-sac has an open and sizable backyard. This is a very kid friendly neighborhood and is within walking distance to your local Starbucks and Marsh. There are three sections, so if you like the community and location, you are able to upgrade within the neighborhood. There is a

custom sound system throughout the home. Newer construction homes under the $200,000 price point are becoming increasingly more difficult to find in Carmel. • Challenges: There is no basement for storage, which becomes an issue as the family grows. There is no space for a main floor bedroom or den in this floorplan. Based upon my experience, these two facts are major reasons growing families decide to purchase another home. Although close to nearby shopping and dining, you do have some extra noise and a view of part of the nearby shopping center from the backyard.

aturally, things aren’t the same today as they were in grandpa’s day. But you can bet the farm that grandpa worked hard, toiled and gardened in his pesticide-free garden, did not consume fast food and didn’t suck down deep-fried Twinkies. His loved ones ate compassionately raised, content, vegetarian cattle that had not been chemically basted. How novel. Because our produce comes from 2,000 miles away it must be harvested before it has matured so it will make the trip without financial loss. Because of mono-crop farming, science reports we would have to eat about three times the produce today to get the same amount of vitamins we did from that same

amount 30 years ago. Pick produce early and it’s not nutritionally matured once it is separated from its source of essential nutrients. Patriotically speaking, I believe we should support our local family farmers during growing season. Why buy produce and meats from other countries? Linda Rosier has her master’s degree in earth literacy from St. Maryof-the-Woods College in Terre Haute. Rosier shares: “Throughout the growing season, local farmers have a wider variety of produce that can be found at the grocery, and we can feel good knowing our food wasn’t shipped from thousands of miles Wendell away. There is nothing more psychologically satisfying than sitting down to a mid-summer’s family meal, knowing the first names of everyone involved in the food on my plate. “During times when no local organic options are accessible, we can become more educated about the origin of ingredients in the non-regional foods and cleaning materials we purchase.

WASHED SALAD NEEDS NO WASHING: According to Donald Schaffner, Ph.D., a professor of food science at Rutgers University, rewashing “ready to eat” or “triple washed” salads at home actually increases the risk of cross-contamination. In the factory where the greens are packaged, a limited number of foods are handled in a controlled environment. Chances are your kitchen contains more opportunities for cross-contamination, such as raw chicken or a child’s runny nose, making it more likely that bugs will end up in otherwise clean food. —

Local whole foods stores and a handful of grocery chains now offer convenient sections dedicated to healthy pantry items, paper towels, napkins, salt, herbs and alternative sweeteners like stevia, healthy junk food, organic produce alternatives, and canned goods without high fructose corn syrup, condiments, baking goods, pet food, and Earth friendly cleaning supplies.

The social networking phenomenon that has been popularized by has launched hundreds of alternatives for everything from children to musicians to various faith-based groups. (If you have a specific interest, try searching Google for “social networking sites” and you will find various listings of everything imaginable.) Any parent who spends more than two minutes on MySpace knows why you don’t want your child involved. (The current eligibility requirement that is posted at is 14 years of age or older, but I cringe at a 14 year old seeing many of the pictures and a lot of the language that fills the site.) Fortunately, enough attention has been generated that hundreds of sites have popped up (with more being launched every day) that are more socially redeeming than MySpace. com Take a look at sites like, which is specifically designed for users between the age of 8 and 14. It’s free to join, but in order to share, invite others or see other user’s content, a parent must use a credit card for verification. The credit card is not charged, it is simply used to verify that the child had a parent approve the use of the site. Instead of just posting policies and dealing

with problems after the fact, incorporates various safety mechanisms including parental tools that will allow monitoring of activity and viewing of posts, comments or exchanges with other users. A less conventional approach for younger children that uses a virtual world and “avatars” (an image that is chosen to represent a user in virtual interactions) is located at www. This site is more of a combination of games, educational material and basic interactions, such as chat in a highly graphical interface. There are also a host of religion-based social networking sites such as www.mypraize. com,, www.xianz. com, which are much less trafficked and less

likely to allow posts that include vulgar language or pictures, hate messages or derogatory information when reported to the administrator. Whether anything that is posted on any Internet site is really ever safe is questionable, so even sites that are designed for younger users require parents to make sure that personally identifiable information is not being submitted. Before you make any decision on which site you will allow your child to join, be sure to spend an evening looking at the site. See what limitations you can place on his or her page, how much control you have over who sees their page and what level of parental control/monitoring it provides. In addition, be sure to stay interested and involved in their online world so as things change you won’t have to try to catch up. If you want to further control the content viewed by your child anywhere on the Internet, consider adding in a good parental control program such as K9 Web Protection (, which is free.

switching the $20 sticky blue spot with a $1 sticky yellow spot, a feat less taxing than trying to steal the refrigerator by dragging it across the Wolfsie lawn and loading it onto a flatbed truck. Now for some tips: Remember that if you advertise your garage sale in the local paper, people will start banging on your door at 3 a.m., even if you clearly note that the sale doesn’t begin until 10. These people, of course, are not looking to buy anything for themselves; they are simply stocking up junk so they can sell the same stuff as antiques in a better neighborhood. I would also recommend witty signage in order to attract attention to your items. OLD BIKE — NEEDS WHEELS: Perfectly good ride; ready for re-tire-ment. HUGE BOX OF NAILS Never driven. Not even by a little old lady. REFRIGERATOR Runs well, but doesn’t cool anything. EXERCISE BIKE It works. It just didn’t work for me. GOLF CLUBS They must be good as new because I’m still shooting the same score as when I bought them. These kinds of snappy remarks will get people talking about how clever you are and not how cheap you are for not donating your useless belongings to Goodwill. Also, make sure to display all items on your driveway. Keep customers out of your garage. Otherwise, you’ll invite unwanted inquiries about things not for sale. For example, nailed to the wall in the back of our garage was a lifesize photo of me and Barney the Beagle that I used to take with me on personal appearances for WISH-TV. One woman, not realizing it was the Wolfsie household, commented to my wife, “You must be a big Dick Wolfsie fan.” “Oh, heavens no,” said Mary Ellen, “I’m married to him.” Dick Wolfsie is an author, columnist and speaker.

he Wolfsie garage sale is over. So is our relationship with the people who bought our 10year-old snow blower and our 8-pound boom box. Work on our garage sale began a few weeks ago. We originally had planned a state-of-theart approach to the business venture by carefully comparing current eBay prices with all our available merchandise, thus determining an appropriate value; then with an eye toward future sales, tracking each purchase by logging the ZIP codes of all our customers. After about an hour of trying to create this software program, we said the heck with it and just started placing little red, yellow and green stickies on all the stuff to indicate cost. The approach we ultimately used to determine the prices may seem a bit odd. We did not look at the Dick Wolfsie intrinsic value of the Humor item, but instead at how long it was sitting around our basement gathering dust. Our theory was that the longer it had been down there, the more valuable it must be, or why would we have hung on to it so long? After all, my wife and I are sane, logical, educated people. What other explanation could there be for an 8-track player’s survival? If it had been useless junk, we’d have trashed it. You may be beginning to see why our last garage sale was less than a stellar success. Prior to the April sale of ’98, we had predicted a windfall of $12,500 by 4 p.m. on Sunday. But instead we ended up with $268.15. Apparently, our philosophical approach to marketing had some flaws. Plus, around 2:25 in the afternoon we accidentally sold the metal box with all the money in it for two bucks. Another reason we lost money is a few of the less reputable buyers realized the ease of

CHECK, PLEASE: Created by East Indians, named by Indonesians, and popularized by the Dutch, gingham fabric is an international phenomenon. Since arriving stateside last winter, Uniqlo has quickly separated itself from the crowded fastfashion pack.

Even though I am still young, I feel that I have worked hard and deserve to put the money and attention toward our home to make it sophisticated and timeless. But what is most important to me is that our home always feel as comfortable as the old college home I spent all those years in — where everyone who visited felt welcome and comfortable and wanted to stay awhile.”

CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM GETS SET TO OPEN IN CARMEL The Midwest Museum of Contemporary Art, or MiCo, will open Sept. 14 on the second floor of the new building containing Evan Lurie Fine Art Gallery at 30 W. Main St. “We are definitely moving into that space,” the museum’s executive director, Jeremy Efroymson, told Current in Carmel on Wednesday. According to the museum’s Web site, “MiCo is dedicated to fostering appreciation of contemporary art. Mico’s 7,300-square-foot flexible space serves as a canvas for all forms of media from photography and painting to performance, video and the unexpected.”

The museum’s first exhibition, “Backyard: A Look at Suburban Backyard Living,” which runs from September through early December 2007, will be “a group show of conceptually light-hearted works by notable Midwestern artists” such as Indianapolis native Emily Kennerk. The museum’s second exhibition, “Focus: Midwest,” which runs from early December 2007 through January 2008, is planned as “a biennial show featuring new, compelling works by leading Midwestern artists.” A version of this story originally appeared Wednesday on

Tim Hedberg

General manager at Kona Grill, Clay Terrace. Where he eats: Bonefish

Instructions: In food processor or bowl, finely chop mint, parsley, garlic, lemon juice and salt. With machine running, pour in oil.

Why: I like how it’s upscale but still casual and inviting. You can carry on a conversation without feeling like you have to yell.


Beer of the week Beer name: Dragonfly IPA Brewery: Upland Brewing Co. Bloomington, Ind. Type: India Pale Ale

Bonefish 4501 E. 82nd St. Indianapolis, IN 46250 863.3474 Hours: 4 to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday, 4 to 10 p.m. Sunday

Here’s an Indiana product that Hoosiers can be proud of. Upon pouring, one obtains a fluffy white head. It recedes soon enough, but leaves behind an attractive lacing. The scent is floral, and the first taste is very bitter — a good thing! This highly hopped brew has a malty main note, with hints of citrus and lemongrass in the background. Delicious!
