Syed Nabi, an attendee of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Independence Day celebration, captured the overall sentiment of the event diversity when he said, “One fish shouldn’t make the whole water dirty.” Marking a departure from previous years, this year, the Ahmadiyya Indiana chapter shared its patriotism toward the United States with Carmel during a community-wide celebration held July 4 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at Lawrence Inlow Park. The president of the Indiana Ahmadiyya chapter, Imran Malik, decided to host a public celebration rather than the more traditional private celebration, because he is worried that the events that have occurred since Sept. 11, 2001, have been projecting a negative and incorrect image of Islam to some Americans. He hopes that public displays of unity and understanding, such as the event held in the park, can help correct that image. It does not matter whether the government of the country you live in is Islamic or non-Islamic, he said. It is the duty of each citizen to show patriotism and obey the laws of the country. “The main purpose (of the celebration) is to share with our fellow citizens that we are a part of a peaceful religion that teaches us to be loyal to the country we live in,” Malik said. Rabia Ummad, a member of Ahmadiyya, explained how fortunate Americans are to have the endless amounts of freedom in comparison to many other

countries. “I think a lot of people have this perception that we don’t love America just because we migrated here,” she said. “But this is the place that gives us freedom!” Not only were there members of the Ahmadiyya and the Carmel community present, but also Mayor Jim Brainard, Chief of Fire Prevention for the Carmel Fire Dept. Bruce Knott, and Police Chief Tim Green spoke about their roles in the community and the importance of Independence Day to the nation. Brainard spoke about how exciting it was to see people from all different religions and cultures come together to celebrate a day that was marked in history 237 years ago. “Sometimes we see tremendous patriotism from newer immigrants, and that’s what we’re seeing here today,” Brainard said. Green appreciated being at the event because it gives police a chance to learn about different groups and cultures, which ultimately helps officers when it comes to the community’s safety, he said. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of the United States of America is only about 125 years old, with more than 15,000 members and 70 chapters in the U.S. The group that strives to deliver the peaceful message of Islam celebrated the 4th of July with fellow Americans on a national level. “To be out in public and have our civil service present here today gives us an opportunity to show our fellow Americans that we celebrate as well,” Malik said.

Record breaker – CarmelFest Chairman Jeff Worrell is expecting to raise a record amount of money from this year’s Spark Button sales. More than 3,400 buttons were sold, and Worrell said many people told him “to keep the change, so I am still counting the profits.” Worrell and Spark Button Committee Chairman Jack Badger, whom Worrell described as the “secret weapon” behind this year’s successful campaign, had hoped to sell 3,000 of the buttons, which debuted in 1994 to help pay for the city’s fireworks display. In their debut year, only 27 buttons were sold. Clinic – National Flag Football is offering a free flag football clinic for boys and girls ages 4 to 10 years old this summer in Noblesville. This is a great opportunity for kids and their families to experience what National Flag Football has to offer. National Flag Football runs the nation’s largest flag football league with locations throughout Indiana, Michigan and Kentucky with a local league in Noblesville which plays on Sundays at Dillon Park. The clinic includes a National Flag Football T-shirt, warm up, drills and a scrimmage. The clinic will be July 20 from noon to 2 p.m. at Dillon Park. Participants must register in advance and can do so online at www. or by calling 759-2691. Extended – Due to an overwhelming response to the cover story in the July 2 edition of the Current about Mark Sutton’s antique flag collection that is now for sale at the Carmel Old Town Antique Mall, Roman Chang, COTAM owner, has decided to leave the collection up through July 15 to give more people an opportunity to view the display, which is valued at more than $70,000. Back next week – Because CarmelFest Chairman Jeff Worrell had has hands more than full last week with all of the festivities, Current forgave him his columnist duties and let him have a week off. Look for his return next week, however, when he will again highlight those deserving volunteers in our community.

Utilities moving to Lurie building

By Karen Kennedy •

In a cost-saving effort proposed by City Council member Luci Snyder, Carmel City Utilities will move its offices and 12 government employees from its current Pedcor-owned space at 760 3rd Ave. SW and will begin sharing office space with the Carmel Redevelopment Commission on the second floor of the Lurie building. The lease on the space, which Carmel Utilities occupies, expired on June 25, and it has been renting on a month-to-month extension. The new four-year lease in the Lurie building at 30 W. Main St., has not been signed yet, but John Duffy of Carmel City Utilities anticipates that it will be signed at the Board of Works meeting on July 17 and that the move will occur in September. Carmel City Utilities will lease directly from Evan Lurie and will sublease to the CRC. Under the new Lurie lease, the total monthly rent will

be $10,997 and the proposed sublease amount to the CRC will be $2,855. This will reduce Carmel Utilities rent from $16,850 to $8,142 per month. It will also reduce the CRC’s rent from $8,891 to $2,855. Overall, the move will save the two city departments $14,745 per month – a total annual savings of $176,940. The cost per square foot for both Carmel Utilities and the CRC will be $20.71. According to realtor John Pacilio, fair market value for second floor office space in downtown Carmel would be anything in the area of $20 per square foot. “Given that the staff of the CRC has been recently reduced and that Carmel Utilities was currently occupying more space than they actually needed, this seemed like a win-win situation,” Synder said. Carmel Utilities and the CRC also will share common area maintenance fee and utility costs, with Carmel Utilities paying 74 percent and the CRC paying 26 percent.

Anti-reckless, not anti-business Commentary by Rick Sharp

It seems as regular as clockwork; whenever rational, factually based argument is in short supply in the world of politics they turn to rhetoric and spin. That time is city council apparently upon us now. The new label being thrown about, probably to see if it will stick, is that the current Carmel City Council is anti-business. It has been tossed before the media by the mayor and his several “average” citizens. What is the source of this displeasure? The council’s recent decision to deny authorizing the mayor to seek an Industrial recovery tax credit for several properties owned by Pedcor, a major player in the redevelopment district in Carmel. The Industrial Recovery Tax Credit is intended to assist blighted industrial areas to recover purpose for abandoned industrial sites and re-establish jobs. I, among others, did not see the razing of the Woods Wire structure and replacing it with, well no one was quite clear on what they might do with the site. No one was clear on the use or whether or not they would require subsidy from the city to build. In fact, neither Pedcor nor the mayor were clear about anything. I certainly have learned that without all the details, we are certain to have unpleasant surprises down the road. The bailout of $184 million in Carmel Redevelopment Commission debt is one sobering example. Now you will and

have been told it was a simple refinance to take advantage of low rates. However, the numbers and the testimony at the time paint a starkly different picture. Now let us examine the business stance of this council. We have never turned away a legitimate economic opportunity. We have not rejected a single tax abatement proposal, whether real estate taxes or personal property, that was proposed to attract or retain an employer. We even agreed to a $2-million subsidy to Pedcor to advance the start of another phase of City Center, which we have named a high priority for completion. We have approved nearly every initiative championed by the Chamber of Commerce, the representatives of the business community. This council is all about smart investment of Carmel taxpayer money for business growth in Carmel. However, we are not about to buy a pig in a poke. I invite the Pedcor organization to come back to the council anytime they would like, but bring the A game and show us just what and how and when you expect to develop, and then we can tell you what we think of your concrete proposal. Anti-business, hardly, but anti reckless… you bet!

r i v a t e

Four people, including the victim, were treated for injuries after a June 29 carjacking ended at gunpoint in Carmel. crime Around 10:50 a.m., the Carmel Police Dept. responded to a report of a carjacking/auto theft in the area of 10025 Michigan Rd. The suspect, later identified as Joshua Allen Hill, a black male from Indianapolis, allegedly forcibly stole a 2001 Honda Accord from the victim who was identified as Ariana Ciglar from Zionsville. After a short pursuit by police, Hill crashed the stolen car into another vehicle near 116th Street and Hoover Road, slightly injuring the mother and daughter inside who were treated at the scene by the Carmel Fire Dept. Hill reportedly continued driving until he crashed again and then fled the scene on foot,

running into the Crooked Stick Neighborhood. Hill then entered a home in the 1600 block of Prestwick Lane where he battered the female homeowner, according to police reports. The female homeowner later was transported to IU North Hospital for medical treatment. Hill then stole a four-door Jeep Wrangler from the Prestwick residence and was later apprehended at gun point by Carmel Police Officers near the residence. He was taken to St.Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of injuries suffered in the vehicle crashes, according to police. Hill, who was in the Hamilton County Jail at publication time on a $95,000 bond, was charged with two counts of carjacking; two counts of robbery resulting in serious bodily injury; two counts of battery resulting in serious bodily injury; strangulation; resisting law enforcement; and failure to stop after an accident resulting in injury of a person.

Burglar lands in jail after fall – An Indianapolis man is facing 12 criminal charges after Carmel police caught him allegedly trying to rob a home in the 10800 block of Weston Drive. At publication time, Timothy L. Barnes was being held in the Hamilton County Jail on a $95,000 bond facing three counts of burglary; three counts of theft; three counts of criminal mischief; and one count each of resisting law enforcement, possession of a controlled substance and possession of a narcotic. Barnes, a 39-year-old white male, was arrested on July 1 after police responded to a burglary in progress call at the Weston Drive home. The homeowner’s son, a juvenile, told police he heard noises coming from the upstairs of the house. He called 911 and left the house with his sister before the police arrived. As police were searching the home, Barnes allegedly jumped from the second story window of the home. Barnes sustained minor injuries from the fall and was transported to IU North Hospital for treatment. Carmel police later found two other residences that also had been burglarized, another in the 10800 block of Weston Drive and one in the 3700 block of Cole Court. Police believe Barnes may have been connected to those burglaries as well.

Night out helps prevent crime

By Colleen Peregrin • Aug. 6 marks the date of the 30th annual National Night Out, an event designed to help teach people tactics to reduce their potential for crime. This year’s theme is Lights On safety Means Lights Out for Crime. “Crimes are sometimes opportunities,” said Carmel Police Lt. Joe Bickel. “So, if you lessen the opportunities by locking your car door, locking your house and turning on your lights at night, that helps prevent the opportunities for bad guys – or bad girls – to go and commit crimes.” This year, the National Night Out event will be at the Carmel Gazebo by Civic Square from 6 to 9 p.m. and will feature personnel from the Carmel Fire and Police departments. “In addition, we are trying to have a few other things from the police department, like our SWAT team, a few members and their truck as well as some of our traffic officers and their motorcycles at the event,” Bickel said. During prior National Night Out events, each of the 125 Carmel area neighborhoods that have an established Crime Watch program would organize an event. This year’s centrally-located event allows the police and firefighters to have more time to interact with the citizens, answering questions and providing useful tips for preventing crime. “In the past, we’ve been to all these different

neighborhoods, which really spreads out our resources,” Bickel said, reminiscing on the event in previous years. “I think last year I went to four different neighborhoods and that meant I could only spend so much time at each.” The event will be a pitch-in meal and the department asks that people bring their own tables and chairs and encourages bringing goodies to share with neighbors and friends.

The City of Carmel is again making headlines as it was highlighted in a new study by Ford Motors on the fastest growachievement ing trends of 2013. Ford found that, for the first time in this century, America’s cities are growing faster than their surrounding suburbs as potential home-buyers seek out more diversity, opportunity and culture. The report, entitled “Looking Further with Ford: 13 Trends for 2013,” mentions Carmel as follows:

“The mayor (of Carmel) has set out to design a city for ‘people first and automobiles second.’ At the heart of the city’s surge is the reconstruction of the one-mile ‘Old Town:’ an $800 million public/private partnership funded new streets, sidewalks and an arts district, drawing people from Indianapolis and beyond.” The study also found that of young professionals, “Generation Y-ers,” 88 percent want to be in an urban setting with pedestrian town squares for meeting neighbors and friends and multi-mixed mobility choices.

Brainard receives Riley Award

By Karen Kennedy • Mayor Jim Brainard has just returned from the 50th International Making Cities Livable Conference in Portland, Ore., achievement where he was awarded the first Joseph P. Riley Award by the International Making Cities Livable Council. According to Suzanne Lennard, director of the IMCL, Brainard was chosen for the award for his inspirational leadership in creating a vibrant, multi-functional heart for Carmel. “The beauty, harmony and diversity of the

compact urban fabric of City Center and the Arts District, town squares, parks and the Center for the Performing Arts demonstrate a clear understanding of true urbanity and a vision of Carmel as a great city,” Lennard said. Brainard spoke at the awards ceremony to a large group of mayors, council members, architects and city planners from around the world. The award, which will be bestowed annually, is named after Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr., who has served as the mayor of Charleston, S.C. since 1975. Riley is widely regarded as a passionate visionary in the field of true urbanism, and is the founder of the Mayor’s Institute on City Design. Art award winner – Artzy Girlz, Inc. CoFounder and Carmel resident Ariana Silver, 10, bestowes an Artzy Award on Mayor Jim Brainard to acknowledge all that he has done to support the cause of arts and culture in the Carmel area including helping to create the Arts & Design District to revitalize the downtown area.

Teens ‘graduate’ police academy

By Nina Johnson •

The Carmel Police Dept. partnered with Carmel High School to host Teen Academy June 24 through 28 with a full roster of 32 cadets comprised of local 13 to Achievement 18-year-old students. “It’s a public relations program geared toward getting the youth involved and an understanding of what law enforcement involves,” said Det. Phil Hobson in a promotional video on the city’s website. Sgt. Nancy Zellers of Criminal Investigations pointed out the academy also “fosters good relationships with our city’s teenagers” and develops leadership skills. “We find about 50 percent of the students (in each session) are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement,” said Lt. Jeffrey Horner. Daily sessions included physical training designed to give students a feel for authentic recruit training. “Physical fitness is an important, and evolving, aspect of law enforcement,” Hobson said. Students learned formation drills and how to march in cadence. “Almost everyone enjoyed the group activities and games,” Horner said. “However, a surprising number enjoyed the drills and marching.” Emergency response team members displayed equipment such as ghillie suits, ballistic shields and forcible entry tools. Students learned defen-

sive tactics and applied them in simulated building searches and traffic stops. Because students requested more information about K-9 units, sessions now include live demonstrations of police dog training. Another activity involved students wearing “Fatal Vision” goggles while attempting to tricycle through an obstacle course. “We try to give them a simulation of the effects of alcohol on the body,” Hobson said. Chief Michael Fogarty commended the academy for “building character, teamwork and camaraderie” among students. The final day included a graduation ceremony and Abuelo’s-catered dinner attended by family members. Students received completion certificates and some were recognized with leadership awards.

The coolest backyard ever – Natural Light Patio Covers There’s nowhere anyone would rather be on a beautiful summer day than the backyard deck, in a comfortable chair, sipping a cool drink. And yet, this idyllic scenario can so easily be spoiled if the sun is too hot and too direct. There are dozens of solutions to block the sun, but nothing is as effective or rewarding as a Natural Light Patio Cover. Imbued with almost magical qualities, the covers block all U.V. rays and 75 per cent of infrared rays, while letting through most of the light. The result is a cool setting that is still filled with natural light. There isn’t a giant solid awning casting a shadow not only on the deck but on the room behind the adjacent windows. There isn’t a large umbrella that has to be folded down every time the wind picks up. And there isn’t a retractable sunshade that has to be cranked into position every time someone wants to sit outside. Natural Light Patio Covers use Acrylite panels to filter out heat and U.V. while letting the light shine through, to create the perfect patio atmosphere. They can be attached to homes to cover decks and patios, or built as stand-alone covers detached entirely from the house.

They are permanent structures, engineered specifically for the Indianapolis climate to take the wind and snow without buckling or showing signs of wear. The see-through panels do not discolour or show any effect from U.V. rays. In short, they are the perfect way to ensure your backyard experience is ideal all spring, summer and fall for many years to come. “We can even build enclosures to create three-season rooms,” says Cory Clapper, the Indianapolis sale consultant of the covers. “People have all sorts of uses for this technology,” he says. “We can build almost any kind of structure to fit in with a backyard plan.” The Acrylite comes in two-foot wide panels that can be as long as 24 feet. Glazing bars between them provide structural support and can be formed into a single slope or cathedralstyle ceiling. “When you look up through the panels, they are a sky blue colour,” Clapper says. “It’s like you’re looking at the sky.” The aluminum structure itself comes in four colours and all Patio Covers include eaves troughs just like the roof of a house.

“The manufacturer guarantees the engineering of the panels, which are made in Germany, for 30 years not to fade or discolour, and has a 10 year warranty against hail damage,” Clapper says. “So, people can expect their covers to last 30 years or more. It’s a quality product.” The structures are not inexpensive, but Clapper uses an integrity pricing system that keeps costs as low as possible. He provides free estimates and plans to run several open houses in London this summer, inviting interested homeowners to tour houses where he has installed a Patio Cover already.“When people see them and feel how cool they are standing there in the bright sunlight, they are amazed,” he says. The company’s website features several options and configurations and as well as testimonials from happy customers who are already enjoying their Natural Light Patio Cover this summer.

CHS junior heads for international ‘chem’ competition By Nina Johnson • The American Chemical Society has selected Carmel High School junior David Liang for the four-student U.S. cover story team heading for the International Chemistry Olympiad in Moscow July 15-24. Liang attended a two-week study camp at Colorado’s U.S. Air Force Academy where he competed as one of the nation’s top 20 students to earn this team position. In 2012, Liang competed with nearly 12,000 U.S. students during local and regional exams where his scores earned him a nomination to compete in the three-part, four-and-a-half hour national exam. He ranked in the nation’s top 20 and, though he competed at camp, did not make the 2012 team. Earning his way into last year’s camp qualified Liang to skip regionals and take the lengthy national exam again this year. He decided to take the regional exam “to gauge (his) weak points.” At April’s national exam, he competed against 900 students and qualified for this year’s study camp and another chance at the Olympiad team. “When I heard that I was chosen for the (2013) camp, I felt a bit of disbelief that I had actually made it this far to be able to represent the U.S.,” Liang said. At camp, days began at 6 a.m. with breakfast in the dining hall followed by four hours of lectures. “A fairly good indicator of expertise is how involved (a student) is in the lectures, especially the organic lectures,” Liang said. He enjoyed the graduate-level lectures. “I learned something new from every one of them,” he said. Frequent assessment exams weighed heavily in determining who made the team. Liang said students remained uncertain of their progress because “the scores are never explicitly revealed.” Four hours of lab work filled every afternoon. “It’s difficult to gauge the lab abilities of others because you’re usually busy with your own lab work,” Liang said. In the evenings, students studied in the dormitory or took a moment to socialize. For a rare break from the classroom, Liang and fellow chemistry campers climbed the red rock formations at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. The American Chemical Society announced

Many house spent both in the lab and in the lecture hall helped land David Liang on the 2013 international Chemistry Olympiad team heading to Moscow, Russia July 15.

“the group of six” on the final Saturday. This select group of finalists remained at camp for three more days of lessons and assessments. On the last day, the new 2013 Olympiad team and two alternates are named. “There was a surreal aura to the whole experience,” Liang said. “There was actually talk among the team about having to wait for the fact that we made the team to really sink in.” Liang will maintain online contact with team members to prepare for the international competition. “The closest (teammate) to me lives about four hours away.” “I am first brushing up on my organic chemistry,” Liang said. “It was not my forte at camp.” He also will practice exercises and pretests based on problems expected at the International Olympiad. Chemistry skills will be tested during a 10hour exam: five hours of laboratory exercises plus a five-hour written theoretical examination. Participants will compete for Olympiad medals. Moscow State University will welcome student teams from 75 countries for this July’s 45th international competition. This is Moscow’s third time hosting the event and plans include opening with a remarkable fireworks show. On the event’s website, Valery Lunin, Dean of the Moscow State University’s Chemistry Dept., explained the competition will take up two days while the remaining nine remain open for professional networking. “Hospitality is a true Russian feature,” Lunin wrote. Participants are encouraged to build contacts with students from around the world and professionals in the chemistry field. Students also experience local culture through organized field trips and social events. Liang is looking forward to the trip and said, “I am very grateful for my teachers, for local ACS coordinators, and for mentors, and camp organizers and instructors for all their help.” He noted his journey began his 2011 freshman year when his national score ranked him in the top 150 but offered no camp opportunity. “I haven’t really settled on a specific career and am open to a lot of paths,” Liang said. “I will probably choose an area related to science or math, since those are what interest me.”

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP Is liberty giving way to tyranny? “When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.” - Thomas Jefferson

Real life heroes It is our position that individuals who dedicate their life to public safety are the real community heroes. The tragic deaths of 19 elite firefighters who were killed while fighting the Yarnell Hill wildfire in Prescott, Ariz., serve as a reminder of the bravery and sacrifices emergency personnel make for total strangers in their communities every day. Yet, it seems professional athletes and entertainers steel most of the spotlight, and unfortunately, the headlines. Imagine a community where firefighter shirts replaced football jerseys for leisure wear. Posters of pop-stars and baseball trading cards are forsaken for the names and faces of police officers, doctors and nurses. Not to mention the enormous disparity in income. Credit must also be given to the brave parents, spouses and children who selflessly share their loved ones with the entire community. As A.W. Smokey Linn wrote in his fireman’s prayer, “I want to fill my calling, and give the best in me, to guard my neighbor and protect his property. And if according to your will, I have to lose my life, please bless with your protecting hand, my children and my wife.” Thank you to all the real life heroes who keep our community safe.

Getting the butts out Commentary by Terry Anker What is the difference between a neighborhood in decline and one that is great or becoming so? Europe is filled with spectacular places – old cities, public art and centuries of accumulated cool stuff. But each grand bridge, charming street and quaint facade comes with its own progressive price tag. Like the human kind, architectural aging comes at a high cost. Weather, war and watchlessness each takes its toll. Yet, the supposed inevitability of the decay is highly disproportionate in its impact. Some streets, filled with ancient buildings, appear fresh and solid. Others, even with much newer edifices, appear ready for collapse. What makes the difference? Certainly, there are some innate qualities that support longevity. Wind and water, especially of the saline variety, pushes the genetic makeup to the limits. But so much, even the single most important, lies in maintenance. Of course, a leaking roof quickly becomes an all-in collapse if ignored for even moments. But the big problems are usually the ones

that are ignored – the small ones, especially in the aggregate, can be even more dangerous. Communities large and small struggle with graffiti and garbage – as they have for centuries. Money, building materials and loads of elements lead to their management. Good leadership and ethical institutions are crucial to be sure, but the role of the individual cannot be discounted. Just this week, I watched as a man stood in front of an aging storefront in our fine community and used the car key from his pocket to fish cigarette butts from the cracks in the sidewalk in front of his shop. Why did he take this initiative? Let along, what made him take notice? How much in our lives could be fixed with simple effort and not grand gesture? I want to shop in that store – the guy seemed to care. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

Read that again, please. We trust you celebrated the Fourth of July in fine fashion and took stock of exactly what Independence Day ultimately means. As we all get back to work, the memories of festivals and fireworks fading somewhat, we believe it’s the perfect time to remind ourselves of the need to fully examine what Thomas Jefferson said. Actually, if not frighteningly, it has an extreme modern-day application. So, let us ask: Do you fear government at any level, but especially in Washington? Do the recent scandals involving the IRS’ unwarranted investigation into conservative political groups and the NSA’s surveillance scandal – and let’s not forget the retroactive amnesia associated with the terrifying events in Benghazi - give you reason to feel apprehensive about government’s intentions? Do we really understand what liberty means? Do we really understand what the Fourth of July means, aside from sparklers, parades and blueberry cobbler? It’s never to late to grasp and embrace. If you have children, do they know? Do we all really value being reared in a free society that, despite its warts, is the best on Earth? Is it possible to understand liberty’s true meaning if you’ve never experienced any of the variety of alternatives? Are we at that point, though? Does the national holiday we celebrated just last week have a different feel to it than it did, say, 10 years ago? We believe that if everyone is being honest, the answer to that would be a resounding “yes.” Maybe Jefferson should have said that in order to gain liberty, government needs to respect the people. Sadly, that never will happen. That’s our take, but we want yours.

Listen up, people. Passing gas in bed is not something to be proud of. Despite my husband’s arguments to the contrary, it is humor harmful to others and can destroy relationships. And I, for one, am no longer going to stand aside and pretend that this presumably natural body function is acceptable between the sheets. This ends here and now. Granted, I’m a bit crazed this morning. Between my family’s dog suddenly deciding she needs to have a potty break at 4 a.m. (and whose incessant whining only seems to wake me up), jet lag (I’m only four days back in country from my North Africa/ Middle East adventure, which I survived with minimal incidents, thank you very much!) and Doo’s early morning gaseous antics, I am not thinking altogether clearly. So I’ve decided to concentrate my sleep-deprived efforts on saving the world from oh-dark-thirty “bomb” attacks. What galls me the most is how funny Doo thinks he is. When I told him about his consecutive cacophonous pre-dawn assult, and that the result was a nightmare where he stole my food and then abandoned me in a medieval Koranic school somewhere in Morocco (the stress of my trip is still lingering), Doo howled with laughter. No “I’m sorry I kept you awake” or “I feel terrible for what I subjected you to” or even the slightest hint of embarrassment. Truth be told, my accusations somehow made him feel more manly, more

macho, MORE hilarious. Come on! I understand if you’re alone and the urge strikes . . . go for it. They’re your nostrils you’re searing. But when your partner is within the blast zone with no opportunity to escape or even protect herself, honking your butt horn is rude, and frankly, immature. What grade are we in? And OK, I’ll admit to sometimes finding the situation extremely funny, too, but that’s when I’m fully awake and coherent, and I know he’s just trying to lighten the mood. True – I suppose every so often breaking wind occurs mid-REM. Like sleepwalking, the person is not aware of his toxic actions. But the noise my husband was generating this morning and the consistent spacing and sheer forcefulness of the sounds left no doubt in my mind that he was in full control of his emissions system. Uncool, Doo. Uncool. If you or someone you love is suffering a similar situation, join me in spreading this important message: Cheese cutting should take place in a well-ventilated area, not the bedroom, and if possible, with an ample, clearly a communicated warning. For the sake of relationships everywhere! Peace out.

First the movers separated our three-part wall unit, transferring the middle tower to our son’s former bedroom upstairs. As humor a result, the extra bed in his room had to be stored in the basement. The easy chair had to be moved to the other side of the living room, which meant the sections of our couch had to be reconfigured, but now the coffee table was the wrong shape and had to be replaced. And now you know why it took us eight years to finally decide to buy a big screen TV. No furniture adjustment was required in our house when we purchased our cell phones, video cameras or even computers. With all the research and design that companies like Samsung invest in, I ask you: Why can’t they make big screen TVs smaller? Our cable provider came and hooked everything up. When he left, we stared at the behemoth that was already beginning to seem like an intruder in our home. “I feel like a space ship has landed in our living room,” said Mary Ellen. “It’s way too big and high tech.” “I know. It looks weird next to the shelf with a set of 1989 World Book Encyclopedias.” We watched a new episode of “The Killing” on AMC. We stared at the TV silently until finally I had the nerve to say it. “Mary Ellen, I don’t like the picture. It’s almost too sharp. Do you know

what I mean?” “Yes, I was just thinking that I feel like I’m watching an episode of All My Children. I don’t think real life is that crisp and clear.” We viewed the entire show, convinced that Susan Lucci would eventually make a cameo appearance. I told Mary Ellen that we must never speak of this issue again, not if we had any hopes of ever making new friends with people under the age of 90. We wanted our old TV back, but requesting a return from Goodwill creates a lot of bad will, so we decided to just deal with it. I went online and discovered hundreds of people posting about what they called SOE (the soap opera effect), a term I had coined in my living room the previous night but was given absolutely no credit for in the blogosphere. I called the store and the sales associate said this was indeed a common complaint but it was easily remedied. He told me to get my remote and then go to the sub menu. The only sub menu I know how to find gets me a sixinch teriyaki chicken on whole wheat and a drink for $5.95.

This year’s Sheridan BlueGrass Fever festival is expected to draw an even larger crowd than the one shown here at last year’s festival. (Submitted photo)

Sheridan BlueGrass Fever is mid-summer highlight By Mark Johnson • As the summer reaches its midpoint, local fans of bluegrass music will have much to celebrate. On Friday and Saturday, the Sheridan Historical Society will roll out its MUSIC annual Sheridan BlueGrass Fever. The festival, which is in its sixth year, will feature two days of food, workshops, and, of course, lots of bluegrass music. This year’s festival will be held on the hillside lawn terrace on Sheridan Veterans Park, at First and Main streets. Featured acts on the bill include Circle City Bluegrass Band, The Little Roy and Lizzie Show, Jeremy Morris and the Harvest Road Band, Blue Mafia, Cumberland Gap, and Karl Shiflett & the Big Country Show. The Sheridan BlueGrass Fever is part of the Sheridan Historical Society’s community outreach mission. The society’s goal is to preserve the history of Sheridan through family histories, museum collections, and pioneer artifacts. As festival chairperson Brenda Bush explained, Sheridan BlueGrass Fever is an outgrowth of that community building. “It started out as a pilot in 2008,” she said. “We started testing events that were centered around the George Boxley Cabin. We wanted events that would celebrate culture and history.” Boxley Cabin, as it is known today, is itself rich in history. It was constructed in 1828 by Virginia native George Boxley, a fugitive abolitionist who would later establish the first school in what was then known as Adams Township. Boxley spent the remainder of his life an educator, and continued to aid runaway slaves. “Boxley Cabin is a big part of our history and our culture. This is a multi-community event,

and we are constantly growing,” Bush said. “In 2009, we had 400 people. In 2010, we celebrated the Sheridan centennial and drew a crowd of 1,200. In 2011, we gated the event for the very first time. Our budget for this year’s festival was $17,000. We also received a grant from the Hamilton County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.” Of course, the accent during the festival will be on the one element that is known for bringing people together, the music. On opening night, the Circle City Bluegrass Band will start the show, and their appearance has become a staple of the festival. The CCBB, as they are known, was the first act to perform at the inaugural festival.

If you go Friday 6 p.m. – Jeremy Morris and the Harvest Road Band 7 p.m. – Cumberland Gap 8 p.m. – Circle City Bluegrass Band Saturday 2 p.m. – Blue Mafia 3 p.m. – Karl Shiflett and the Big Country Show 4 p.m. – The Little Roy and Lizzie Show 5 p.m. – Blue Mafia 6 p.m. – Hickory Hollow Bluegrass Band 7 p.m. – Jeremy Morris and the Harvest Road Band 8 p.m. – Karl Shiflett & the Big Country Show 9 p.m. – The Little Roy and Lizzie Show Tickets are $20 for both days; $10 for Friday and $15 for Saturday. Children 12 and younger are not charged admission. For more information, visit

“The guys in CCBB all love playing bluegrass music so we enjoy it anywhere we get to play. But Sheridan has been pretty special for us,” CCBB bass player and emcee Dean Metcalf said. “From our very first show, we’ve always felt warmly welcomed by the audience and the event organizers. The park, cabin, and gazebo make a beautiful setting for outdoor concerts and we seem to have wonderful weather every year. It makes me proud to be a Hoosier sharing a perfect Indiana evening with other Hoosiers.” Both Bush and Metcalf agree that one of the many high points of the festival will be an appearance by teenage banjo wunderkind Jeremy Morris and the Harvest Road Band. “We are thrilled to have Jeremy Morris back this year,” Bush said. “He’s 16 now, but he started playing at the age of 6!” “We met Jeremy Morris the first time we played in Sheridan, when he was just this little kid playing a few songs on a banjo. It’s been amazing watching him grow into a professional musician and bandleader,” Metcalf said. For festival organizers and performers, it would seem that the excitement, the venue, and, most importantly, the audience are more than enough to keep the festival alive and vibrant for years to come.

Strawberry Cheesecake

Ingredients: 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs; 1/4 cup white sugar; 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon; 1/3 cup butter, melted; 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed and drained; 1 tablespoon cornstarch; 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened; 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk; 1/4 cup lemon juice; 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract; 3 eggs; 1 tablespoon water (optional) Directions: Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl. Press onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Place strawberries and cornstarch into a blender. Cover and puree until smooth. Pour strawberry sauce into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil and stir until sauce is thick and shiny, about 2 minutes. Set aside 1/3 cup strawberry sauce; cool. Cover and refrigerate remaining sauce for serving. Beat cream cheese in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; gradually beat in condensed milk. Mix in lemon juice and vanilla extract, then beat in eggs on low speed until just combined. Pour half of cream cheese mixture over crust; drop half of

reserved strawberry sauce by 1/2 teaspoonfuls on cream cheese layer. Carefully spoon remaining cream cheese mixture over sauce; drop remaining strawberry sauce by 1/2 teaspoonfuls on top. Cut through top layer only with a knife to swirl strawberry sauce. Bake in preheated oven until center is almost set, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. Serve reserved strawberry sauce with cheesecake. If the sauce it too thick, stir in water.

On the evening of June 29, Michael Feinstein opened the second annual Great American Songbook Hall of Fame induction CFTPA ceremony with a quote from Irving Berlin, “Songs make history, and history makes songs.” The quote was both appropriate and timely for a history-making night at Carmel’s Center for the Performing Arts. Feinstein, artistic director for the Center and founder of the Great American Songbook Initiative, served as the night’s host. By turns brilliant, gracious, humble and dynamic, Feinstein kept the ceremony lively and amusing. It was a night like no other at the Palladium: a night filled with magic, music, and tributes. This was the night to honor four legends of music for their immeasurable contributions to the Great American Songbook. Liza Minnelli, Rita Moreno and Jimmy Webb were all on hand to accept their awards, while Frank Sinatra received the posthumous Legend Award. Following welcome comments by Center for the Performing Arts president and CEO Tania Castroverde Moskalenko, Feinstein introduced singer and Broadway star Tom Wopat, best known for his role on television’s “Dukes of Hazzard.” Wopat would induct award winning singer and composer Jimmy Webb. Webb is the songwriter responsible for such classics as “Wichita Lineman,” “Up, Up

and Away,” and “By the Time I Get to Phoenix.” During a brief interview before the show, Wopat explained his admiration for Webb. “I’ve been a Jimmy Webb fan for a long time,” he said. “Jimmy has the unique ability to write a song with timeless appeal, and a song that touches people.” Wopat also has recorded several of Webb’s songs. Next, television, screen, and stage actor Jimmy Smits took to the podium to induct multi-award winning singer, dancer, and actress Rita Moreno. Smits proclaimed Moreno a “goddess” who had profoundly influenced his art and his life. Smits then introduced singer, composer, and guitarist

Jose Feliciano who paid tribute to Moreno with an elegant rendition of “Strangers in the Night.” In a stunningly novel tribute, Jill Godwin of Dance Kaliedoscope honored the legendary and iconic Sinatra with a smoldering dance interpretation of the Sinatra classic “That’s Life.” One of the most striking performances of the night came from 16-year-old singer Nick Ziobro who performed in honor of Sinatra. Ziobro is the winner of the 2012 Great American Songbook High School Vocal Academy and Competition and serves as Youth Ambassador of the Great American Songbook. Ziobro already shows the poise and charm of a consummate entertainer. Finally, as the ceremony drew to a close each of the three Hall of Fame honorees took their turns on stage to accept their awards. Webb was gracious, and low-key as he thanked God for his long and prolific career. The 81-year old Moreno wowed the crowd with her vibrancy and grace as she glided flamboyantly to the podium. She humbly thanked Feinstein and spoke of the significance of receiving her award in the nation’s Heartland. Yet, nothing could have prepared the audience for the finale. Following a short but sincere acceptance speech, Minnelli launched into an amazing, show-stopping rendition of “New York, New York.” Minnelli’s strong and lively performance brought the surprised and cheering crowd to its feet with a lengthy standing ovation. An evening of magic, indeed.

Vacation increases DVT risk

Commentary by Dr. Jeffery Schoonover

Deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, is the formation of a blood clot inside a vein deep in the body, especially in the legs. DVT may not have any symptoms but can cause pain, swelling veins and warmth in the leg. If untreated, people with DVT are at risk for developing a pulmonary embolism in which the blood clot breaks away and travels to the lung, which can be fatal. Approximately 600,000 people in the United States have a pulmonary embolism each year, and more than 10 percent of them die from it. Pulmonary embolism occurs equally in men and women and doubles for each 10 years after age 60. Vacations are a particularly dangerous time for DVT because extended travel on an airplane, car or train can increase your risk. This is especially important if you have recently had surgery, are pregnant, overweight, smoke or have a history of blood clots. Risk of DVT should not keep you from traveling this summer if you take these simple steps. • Studies have shown that wearing compression stockings during a trip can significantly reduce your risk for DVT. These stockings help increase circulation in your legs. Make sure to purchase medical grade stockings,

fitted by a trained professional. • Stay hydrated. Drink lots of water and avoid caffeine or alcohol because both are dehydrating. • Wear loose, comfortable clothes. • Get out of your seat every hour or two. Walk up and down the aisle. In an airplane, it is helpful to request an aisle seat so it is easier to stretch out and move around. In a car, stop at a gas station or rest area and walk around for a few minutes. When you walk, the muscles of the legs squeeze the veins and move blood to the heart. • Move every half hour or so while you are seated. Rotate your ankles, draw circles on the ground with your toes, flex your feet and toes and raise your legs slightly and hold them in the air for a few seconds. • Avoid crossing your legs while you are seated because it prevents circulation and can cause blood to pool in the veins. Taking these steps will decrease your risk for DVT and give you a happier, healthier vacation. Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D., FAAFP, RVT, RPVI, practices with the Indiana Vein Specialists, 11876 Olio Road, Suite 700, Fishers. He can be reached at 348-3023. For more information, visit

Cellular Connection bringing jobs By Karen Kennedy •

The Cellular Connection, headquartered in Marion, is opening a new office in Carmel at 525 Congressional Blvd. and is planning to hire as many as 145 employees coming soon during the next three years. Renovations and additions are being made to a previously vacant space that once housed Firestone Tires. Moorehead Communications, owners of TCC, have purchased the land and the building. TCC operates nearly 900 locations across 28 states and employs nearly 500 Hoosiers. Positions being filled include accounting and finance, IT programming engineers, software programmers, legal staff, trainers, call center support, sales operations, graphic designers and marketing. The new 47,000-square-foot office will house TCC’s training department, including a fully functional mock store. There also will be a call center for customer service and technical support. TCC is the largest Verizon Premium Wireless Retailers in the U.S., and its revenues have

grown by 217 percent during the last three years. “We are thrilled to welcome Moorehead Communications to our community,” said Mayor Jim Brainard. “This is exactly the kind of economic development we are striving to attract and retain for the growth of our city.” TCC President and CEO Scott Moorehead said, “I am thrilled to be opening our second office in Carmel and to be creating 145 jobs for local residents. I have always attributed our success to our employees.” Construction is in progress, and Moorehead expects to have approximately 25 to 30 employees moved into the space by the third week in July. He anticipates the new office to be fully functional by September.

Instant Imprints opens in Carmel

By Mandi Cheesman • From a simple idea to a sketch on a napkin to a full-blown marketing plan, Todd Anderson’s new business, Instant Imprints, can turn them all into reality. now open Anderson’s new Carmel store at 20 Executive Dr. in the Centerpointe Retail Center opened July 1 and is the first Instant Imprints franchise in the state. There are more than 30 of the facilities in North America, and all of them help businesses promote their brand in whatever way the business owner needs. “Businesses now are probably using multiple companies to do what I can do for them here in one place,” Anderson said. “I have six different entities here to help.” Those entities include custom T shirts, signs and banners, business apparel, school and team wear, digital printing and promotional products. Anderson said the San Diego-based Instant Imprints was the first and still the only franchise to combine these businesses into one business. “I’m thrilled about the opportunity to provide local businesses, organizations, schools and everyone that has something to promote a trusted partner here in Carmel,” Anderson said. “This is a unique opportunity to run a business that allows local organizations to take care of all their marketing needs under one roof, from the ground up.” Anderson, who is a Westfield resident, said he chose to open in Carmel because it offered the ideal clientele. “I looked at 30 different locations before I selected this one,” Anderson said. “I feel this market has a lot of small businesses that I I want to partner with and that I can service the best.” After more than 20 years in management positions, Anderson said he is happy to have the opportunity to interact with business owners everyday

and help them create effective marketing initiatives. “My goal is to be out there everyday building relationships,” he said. And he hopes to build a strong reputation as being reliable. “One of the biggest complaints in this industry is missed deadlines, so I am going to promise to never miss a deadline,” he said. “I also will guarantee that it is right or it will be done over.” Anderson opened more than 60 dental practices throughout Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Western Ohio for a nationally branded dental practice management group during the past eight years before deciding to open his own business.

Question: “I hear people use ‘real’ and ‘really’ interchangeably all the time. For example: ‘Traffic is real bad out there right Grammar guy now.’ Is this correct? It just sounds wrong to me.” Answer: Reader, you’re right that this doesn’t pass the sniff test – or the sound test, as it were. What we have here is a case of mismatched adjectives and adverbs, and it’s a very common one, as you’ve pointed out. An adjective, such as “real,” serves to modify, augment or describe a noun. That’s just what they do. Adjectives turn cars into red cars, grass into long grass and books into good books. You get the idea, here. The word “real” modifies a noun to indicate that is not artificial; that it has “objective, independent existence.” Without getting into a philosophical debate, we’ll just say that “real” indicates something exists, unlike unicorns or, say, people who use their turn signals on Keystone Ave. Adverbs, like “really,” serve to modify everything that isn’t a noun: verbs, adjectives, other adverbs, etc. They just don’t modify nouns. With adverbs, you can arrive someplace quickly,

rather than just arriving. You could also arrive there slowly, but that’s rather rude. “Really,” like its adjective cousin “real,” indicates that an action actually occurred, or that a description is truthful. “Really” is also used as an intensifier to emphasize the truth of statements. Some examples: “You really messed up this time.” “It’s really pouring out there.” “You really should use your turn signals.” In our original sentence, we see that “real,” an adjective, is being used to modify “bad,” another adjective. Now that we know adjectives don’t work that way, we’ll need to make a correction: “Traffic is really bad out there right now.” “Bad,” the adjective, modifies the noun “traffic” by telling us its condition – in this case, not good. “Really,” the adverb, modifies the adjective “bad” by telling us, more or less, “how bad.” The rule here is simple: Adjectives only modify nouns. Adverbs modify everything else. With this knowledge, go forth and conquer, dear reader.

BLOWDRY IN LESS TIME! 1. Try Microfiber Instead of drying your hair with the blow dryer immediately after your shower, start by towel drying. When you towel dry, be sure to gently pat the towel on your hair instead of rubbing it on your head, which will just cause frizz. Try using a microfiber hair towel. This super absorbent towel will help soak up moisture faster than a standard bath towel. The microfiber will also help prevent frizz.

BEST BLUSH FOR YOUR SKIN Fair Skin For a pretty flush, stick to soft, pastel pinks. Avoid anything in the brown family, which can look like dirt on porcelain skin. Olive Skin Light pinks just disappear on you, and peaches and bronzes get oddly powdery-looking. Best: Medium to deep rose will warm up your cheeks. Medium Skin A shot of bolder color illuminates light brown or yellow tones, so go for a bright, true pink. And don't worry if it looks too bright in the palette—it will look more subtle on! Dark Skin Blush has to be visible to have an impact, but go too out-there and you may begin to resemble Bozo. Rich, browny reds create that perfect just-from-the-gym flush. Looking for more makeup tips and recommendations? Schedule a consultation with one of our trained Salon01 estheticians! 10 NATURAL REMEDIES FOR ACNE 1. Baking Soda - Baking soda helps eliminate breakouts and inflammation while exfoliating dead skin cells. It also works great to reduce visibility of old scars and acne marks. To use: take a few teaspoons of baking soda and mix it with warm water until it forms a paste. Apply the paste to your skin; leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes the first few time. You can gradually increase the time up to an hour or even leave it on overnight. After one use you should see a great difference in your skin. Remove gently with warm water and pat dry. 2. Apple Cider Vinegar- This pantry staple is amazing for skin, as it has both antibacterial and antifungal properties. The malic and lactic acids found in vinegar help to soften and exfoliate. To use, combine 1/2 cup vinegar with 1/2 cup water and combine in a sterile glass container. Apply to freshly cleansed skin with a cotton ball. 3. Coconut Oil - Coconut oil is also antibacterial and antifungal. Coconut oil’s moisturizing properties keeps skin healthy and hydrated. Apply the oil to your skin and massage in circular motions in place of your usual moisturizer. Reapply as needed. 4. Tea Tree Oil - Tea tree oil is an essential oil with incredible antibacterial properties. To apply, mix a small amount of tea tree with an equal amount of castor or olive oil. Dip a cotton ball into the mixture and apply it to your skin. 5. Egg Whites - Egg whites are powerful at reducing oil and minimizing the look of pores. To use, separate the egg white from the yolk. With a cotton ball, apply the egg white to your skin. Leave it on anywhere from 10 minutes to an

2. Use Less Product Between heat protectant sprays, styling serums, shine creams and leave-in treatments, there are about a million hair products on the market. Remember: they are not all to be used at once. You can actually weigh your hair down when using too many products, which also slows down drying time. Once you’ve finished towel drying your hair, apply your products of choice, but remember to use sparingly. Consult with a trained stylist at Salon 01 to ensure you are using the proper combination and the proper amount of products for your hair type and texture. 3. Get an Ionic Dryer Consider investing in an ionic blow dryer. An ionic blow dryer releases negative ions that help to break down water molecules in your hair faster. The heat from the dryer is better able to penetrate the hair shaft, which results in silkier, smoother strands and a much faster blow dry than that of a typical blow dryer. hour. Rinse your face with warm water and a clean cloth. This treatment is fabulous for removing impurities. 6. Lemon Juice - Lemons have natural antibacterial and astringent properties for clearing skin. Apply lemon juice to freshly cleansed skin and leave on for 15 minutes to an hour. Rinse with warm water and moisturize as usual. 7. Garlic - Surprisingly, garlic is an incredible topical acne treatment. To use, take a clove of garlic and thinly slice it. Rub the slices on your skin, particularly any problem areas, making sure the juice of the garlic is applied. Leave on for 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and cleanse as usual. 8. Ice Cubes - Rub an ice cube on problem areas to help reduce inflammation. Not only, does the cold close your pores it also forces the bacteria out. You can also splash your face with cold water to achieve similar affects. 9. Cornstarch - Cornstarch is very soothing and gentle. This is a great natural remedy for acne when you have a lot of redness or irritation. You can apply the cornstarch to your individual breakouts or to your whole face. 10. Aloe - Aloe is very soothing and reduces inflammation and redness. To use, apply the gel to your skin with your fingers, you can apply it several times a day. If you have an aloe plant, it would be even better as you get the aloe fresh, without any added ingredients.

Good decorating doesn’t require a trust fund

Commentary by Vicky Earley

For printing your a quote next job. on CALL TODAY US

Interior decorating need not empty your bank account if done thoughtfully and with a plan. Just throwing items indoors from decorating discount stores won’t do the trick, ever. The following is a list of just a few changes that are guaranteed to improve any room and don’t require a trust fund. You’ve heard it a million times but it is worth mentioning again and again: The right color on your walls can make your room come together like nothing else. It surrounds the contents and provides a background for the elements. Requirements: Two to three gallons of a quality paint, brushes, rollers, nonstick tape and a painter if you don’t want to tackle it yourself. Remove stacks of magazines, remove shelf after shelf of family photos in assorted frames, and eliminate any “knick knacks” smaller than a shoe box and remove school art from refrigerator. Requirements: Enough emotional security to allow such items to be stored out of sight. Reposition your sofa away from the wall and cluster chairs for easy conversation. Define the space with an area rug.

Requirements: A willingness to embrace the unexpected and a strong back. Permanent silk plants are not forever so now is the time to prune.

Requirement: Fill the vertical void in height of a tired artificial tree with tall bamboo sticks in an urn Retire faded prints, circa 1985 that are framed under glass. There is nothing like original art to add richness and soul to a room, even if you have to be the artist. Using a large gallery wrapped frame, create

art with the same paint used for walls. Simply pour watered down paint on a flat canvas and paint to move freely. After one color is dry, use a second utilizing the same technique. More colors can be squiggled and swirled by applying paint with a squeeze bottle. Requirement: Confidence that your art is worthy of your home. Eliminate things that are looking tired and weary. Be honest with yourself when considering an item – keeping decorative items beyond their shelf life will only pull down everything else in the room. Keep in mind that I am referring to transient items like painted ducks, not items that truly are heirloom worthy. Requirement: Removal of all accessories from a room and consider the “bones.” Shop for a few fresh pieces with the bare room in mind. Carry your fabric swatches and paint chips with you. Before returning your old accessories, place the new ones, adding only the best of the old ones to the mix. Box up the rejects and donate them. I promise you won’t miss a bit of it and your space will have a fresh new face. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in Carmel.

Aging details built into bathroom’s remodel Commentary by Larry Greene

Existing bathroom: The location of this property near Geist Reservoir is what made the current homeowners build their house in 1987. “We moved nine times, so became adept at discovering valuable locations,” said one of the homeowners. “We enjoy sailing as well, so we like being on Geist.” Designed in the 1980’s, the Blueprint for original bathroom was very pink, with carpeting, a fiberglass improvement tub/shower unit and a pedestal sink. Not only was it time to update the space, the homeowners also wanted to make sure they had a workable bathroom on the first floor as they aged. Design issues: “We wanted a designer involved in the process because we had no idea what we wanted,” said one of the homeowners. “We thought we might want to take out the tub, but we are not good at visualizing what we want. It was helpful to work with a professional designer.” Working within the existing footprint, the final design called for replacing the tub/shower unit with a custom shower. Aging-in-place elements such as grab bars, a shower bench and a hand-held shower head were also included. Finally, a large vanity was added to give the room the storage it lacked previously. Final result: Attention to the details gave the homeowner the look they were going for. “I wanted something elegant, modern and unique,” one of the homeowners said. “The design on the shower wall is one I do not see everywhere, and it reminds me of a spa look.” The shower wall was laid with 7-inch by 20-inch porcelain tile in a horizontal, straight pattern, and accented with glass mosaic tile in the niche and banding. Twoinch by 2-inch tiles line the shower floor for visual interest. To add contrast to the light wall colors, Black Pearl granite was used for the shower bench, niche shelving, shower threshold and the vanity countertops. The frameless shower door adds to the sleek, modern look.

After, a newly designed first-floor bathroom considers the needs of its aging owners. (Submitted photo)
