HeartScan Screening Test

Brenda Rumler assists Maggie Kelly as she gets ready for her HeartScan at St. Vincent Heart Center of Indiana

Risk Evaluation … $75; HeartScan … $200; Peace of Mind …. Priceless.

Story by Maggie Kelly

hat little inner voice can be hard to ignore. It intrudes in all aspects of our life – including the state of our heart health. No matter how hard we try to suppress that nagging voice, there is always the reality … “What I don’t know can hurt me.” We are bombarded with messages about the importance of knowing our heart risk score. The messages are everywhere … media, physicians, family, friends … even that little inner voice. What’s your family’s heart history, your cholesterol numbers, your blood pressure, what do you eat, do you exercise, etc.? The list of things that impact our heart continues to grow … talk about stress! Who has time to keep up with the ever changing things that are good or bad for our heart? Who has time to do everything recommended for heart health? As a baby boomer, I have two more negative influences on my heart score … aging and the fact that I’m a female. And my family history is no help. Heart disease doesn’t run in my family, it gallops. And as my family members age, they further prove that warm hearts aren’t necessarily strong hearts. Fortunately, I like to face problems ... despite fear of what I might find. And health screening tests are normal for me. Despite being blessed with a cancer-free family health history, I have annual mammograms and pap smears. After learning that St. Vincent Heart Center of Indiana recently lowered the price of its

HeartScan screening test, I didn’t let my fear of “what might be found” stop me from finding what I might find. Given my family health history, how could I possibly run, or should I say gallop, from a heart screen. And, being the loving wife that I am, how could I possibly not drag my husband along. After all, his family has had its share of heart disease. And he’s not getting any younger either. Appointments were simple, since the HeartScan test can be self- or doctor-referred. We also opted to take the Heart Center’s Risk Evaluation test, which evaluates your risk for future heart disease. For an additional $75 each, we received a cholesterol test and a personal consultation to help us understand how we can improve our risk factors. We arrived at the Heart Center, checked in and provided our medical histories. This included such risk factors as lifestyle, family history, eating habits, smoking habits, etc. It proved to be another reminder that living life is increasing my cardiovascular risks! The HeartScan test was quick, painless and somewhat relaxing. It was over in minutes. I

didn’t have to disrobe; I simply lay down on a moving bed that positioned my chest under a large, doughnut-like CT scanner. According to Brenda Rumler, our friendly, informative technologist, this CT scanner is the best in the state because it provides a more detailed image. The cholesterol test proved to be the least pleasant experience. First, we had to fast. And who enjoys having their finger pricked with a sharp object? We both found the staff members to be pleasant and prepared to address all of our questions and concerns. Those of you who have undergone medical tests realize waiting for the results can be worse than the test itself. Our wait was a short one. They informed us that our HeartScans revealed no problems. Since we were husband and wife, they gave us a joint consultation to discuss the results in detail. Our consultant, Betsy Rabold, treated

Physician referral not required. us like we were the only people she had to deal with all day. She walked us through our HeartScan results and discussed our Risk Evaluation results in great detail. Rabold suggested lifestyle changes, with the understanding that our test results would be shared with our physician, and we should discuss suggested changes with them before taking action. We now have a clear understanding of our current heart health and a better understanding of things we can do to improve the risk factors. As we left the Heart Center, we congratulated ourselves for having the courage to face our fear and gave thanks for our great test results. We celebrated with lunch at the Library. I passed on the Brie cheese in my sandwich. Brian enjoyed the cheese in his … and we both savored the chips. What can we say; lifestyle changes are best when taken in baby steps!!!!

HEART SCREENING CAN HELP ASSESS RISKS Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women in the United States, according to Dr. Woodrow Corey, medical director of cardiovascular services at Clarian North Medical Center. Atherosclerosis is a disease that affects the arterial blood vessels, three of which lead to the heart. It occurs when the normally smooth linings of our arteries get rough, and begin to build up plaque, Dr. Cory said. The five risk factors for plaque are smoking, genetics, high cholesterol, diabetes and high blood pressure. We can do something about four of those risk factors through diet,

exercise and medication, Dr. Corey said. Unfortunately, that doesn’t work for genetics. Also, “as you age your risk of coronary disease goes up,” he said. Clarian Health’s Web site has is a link to a Heart Aware test that anyone can take to determine their risk for heart disease: aspx. It also offers nine steps to improve cardiovascular health. Why is it important to assess your risk? “You want to catch it early so you can slow down the natural progression,” Dr. Corey said.

OUR TAKES It is our position that our fine city continues to serve the state generally, and central Indiana specifically, by the continued maturation, funding, and the development of entrepreneurs of all shapes, sizes and ages. Undoubtedly, Carmel has a reputation throughout the Midwest and across the United States as a great place for business. Many companies correctly locate their corporate headquarters here to take advantage of the attractive tax, regulatory and quality-of-life rewards of our community. But we can also feel good about the significant number of entrepreneurs, regularly incubated by the climate available here. Carmel High School boasts one of the most active Decca chapters

in the U.S. Cathy Langlois and Jeff Burt at the Hamilton County Alliance host regular high school targeted business plan competitions, staffed by volunteer executives from our community. Efforts to nurture and develop entrepreneurs are regularly incorporated into educational activities, civic planning and infrastructure development. The net result is that Carmel is a great place not only to locate a business, but it is also a great place to start one. These businesses create jobs. They help people pay mortgages. And, they generally enrich the fabric of our community.

THE ARTS CAPITAL It is our position that the establishment of the Midwest Museum of Contemporary Art (MiCo) will be a welcome addition to the up-and-coming Arts & Design District. We are high advocates for high art. Many recent studies, including those by the Indiana Arts Council, support the contention that the arts generate a positive impact not only on quality of life, but also on economic development. Should the Carmel City Council elect to support the mayor’s request to provide $100,000 of funding for the new museum out of the city’s arts fund to support the fledgling museum? We say, resoundingly — yes! We believe the investment will be paid back several

fold through increased tax revenue and in the overall enhancement of our formerly sleepy burg. Additionally, it will bolster the synergies already at work in the Arts & Design District. MiCo’s move here exemplifies a growing acceptance of Carmel as a legitimate art venue. It also represents a significant personal investment and endorsement of a member of one of the most prominent families in central Indiana, Jeremy FEfroymson. Carmel’s decision to directly advocate the arts (not unlike Indianapolis’s decision to identify itself as the amateur sports capital some decades ago) is a bold move that has thus far proven itself wise.

magine that you are diagnosed with cancer. The cancer is treatable, but six months of chemotherapy is required. Because your employer no longer picks up half your health insurance, you must tap into your children’s college education funds just to pay the deductibles on the all bloodwork, tests, CT scans, doctor visits, follow-up visits, and the chemotherapy itself. Now imagine that you pay nothing for these medical services. Nothing out of pocket at all. You never receive a medical bill. Furthermore, you don’t need to tap into your children’s college education fund, because you won’t be paying for that either. And when your chemotherapy is complete, you won’t have to worry that your job has been given to someone else. You’ll still have your job, and if you need to take a little time off to regain strength, go ahead. You have a minimum of five weeks of vacation every year. Is this utopia? No, it’s France. The country we love to hate. One of the countries investigated in Michael Moore’s new documentary, “Sicko,” a scathing look at what’s wrong with our health care system. Why is it we expect our children’s secondary education to be free, but not their college education? Why do we expect the government to deliver our mail, but not provide our health care? The rest of the world’s civilized, or “first world,” countries provide health care and medication for their citizens, and unlike in our for-profit insurance industry, doctors are rewarded for providing preventative care, and extra “just-tomake-sure” tests. No health insurance companies send rejection letters, because there are no health insurance companies. And no, French doctors still make six-figure incomes and live very comfortably, just as they

do here. And no, the French, the British, and the Canadians are not taxed to death because of these extra government services. But their governments are not bankrupting their children’s future on “preventative warfare” either. What Moore fails to mention, and should, Andy Ray is that at the two-year point in the current Iraq war, our federal government had allotted enough funding for the president to wage war against Iraq to fully cover the health care, including all medications, of every man, woman, and child in America for six years. And that was after just two years of this fiasco. One of the primary measures of a great country is how well it supports the least of its citizens — those with the least means to care for themselves. I urge you to please see “Sicko,” and see for yourself how we stack up. On another note, I was a proud American on the Fourth of July when the CarmelFest Parade crowd stood and cheered for the USS Indianapolis survivors, who endured the worst naval disaster in US history, at the hands of the Japanese. Just a few minutes later, the Miami Indians’ parade entry passed by. Not only did no one stand and cheer for those whom we forcefully drove from their Indiana homeland, but no one cheered at all! Happy Fourth, Miami. Andy Ray is a manufacturer’s representative in Carmel. You can reach him at

A rockin’ good time was had by all at the inaugural Rock the District event on July 6 and 7. And, yes, refreshments were served. No one can claim they had more fun than the merchants, whose cash registers ran seemingly non-stop – especially on Saturday. And that was the point. Jon McLaughlin and other musical acts, as well as the talented artisans, treated visitors to a great experience, and plans already are in the works for the 2008 version. We were proud to sponsor Rock the District, and we’ll be back for the next go ’round. Keep an eye on our revised Web site, which will be featuring photos of the McLaughlin concert.

Medical. Jeff topped the standing bid – his donation is top-secret and classified info – and the foundation is about to receive his check. Nice gesture, Jeff, and we certainly enjoyed your Main Street Strut with the cover.

*** Speaking of McLaughlin, Carmel’s Best Weekly Newspaper™ and Rock the District, we had an enlargement made of the cover of the March 24 issue – the one that featured the up-and-coming rock star. Then we had the idea to have him autograph it – which he graciously did – and then auction it off in order to benefit the Carmel Clay Library Foundation. You may know the library is about $800,000 upside down, and we wanted to help somehow. It was an uncoordinated effort on our part, tossed together at the last minute, but genuine nonetheless. The bid was stuck at $100 for quite a while, but we wanted more, so we wandered back and forth through the crowd looking for someone with more than beer money in his or her pocket. Well, we found someone, one Jeff Worrell, your favorite CarmelCan! columnist for this newspaper and owner of Advantage

The staff, in particular Tyler Gillaspie and Steve Greenberg, worked with us to create numerous ads that ran in the leadup to CarmelFest. The exposure we achieved by working with Current helped to make CarmelFest 2007 a roaring success. Thanks again for your support. Let’s do it again next year!

the right, you’ll be in for a real treat. Anyone “hazard” a guess? “An old PB&J?” “A moldy waffle?” “A mutilated Barbie?” All reasonable answers, but no. That, my friends, is an actual corn dog left over from the 2003 State Fair. If you were to remove the black hair and re-hydrate, you’d be able to see the teeth marks left by an artistic 5-year-old. Ah, the memories. They grow up so fast, don’t they? But I digress . . . At this time, I’d like to conclude our tour. Y’all have been one of the greatest groups I’ve ever worked with, really. Now, my boss doesn’t want me to tell you this, but you too could have your very own Soccer Mom van! Just add small children, fast food, several road trips, and one harried mother, and in less than 75,000 miles, voila! A family vehicle that no one will ever forget! And believe me, that smell doesn’t just wash out with one shampoo! Own a car like this for a few years, and you’ll remember it for a lifetime. Peace out, fellow Soccer Moms.

haron Bianchi had no warning that her evening would be any different than the evening before or the evening before that one. But when she looked out her window and saw the night sky glowing, the property manager at Mohawk Hills Apartments realized a disaster was in the making. As she witnessed 12 families lose everything they own to careless fire, she also didn’t know that she soon would be recounting stories of overwhelming generosity and unusual human kindness. Sharon and her staff put their previously unused emergency plan into motion. The clubhouse became a temporary shelter, and staff members started gathering beds. The Red Cross was contacted and arrived before the fire was even out. Exhausted and hopeless, the affected residents retreated to the clubhouse to finally lay their heads on a newly purchased bed. No one was looking forward to tomorrow. But then it happened.

As the sun came up and a new day appeared, so did you. Warm, caring, loving people showed up ease a stranger’s pain. The local churches, Carmel United Methodist, St. Mark Lutheran, New Hope Presbyterian and St. Peter’s, offered food, clothing and houseJeff Worrell hold appliances. CarmelCan! The business community showed up to help as well. Panera Bread brought in food, Ruth’s Chris donated dishes, glasses and silverware. Kroger and Buckingham Company gave everyone gift cards to purchase essential personal items. Individuals from all over central Indiana found their way to the office of Mohawk Hills bearing gifts of cash and other necessary


items. Usually they asked to remain anonymous. The fire department helped residents search for passports and other important documents in the rubble. One pair of very young roommates were so overwhelmed with donations that they shared TVs and other appliances with their fellow victims. It was hard for me to do much more than nod my head during my interview with Sharon as I kept fighting a lump in my throat. I tried to not let it show, but I was moved by the sheer number of good stories that rose from the ashes of that terrible evening. Hopefully the bad memories for those involved in the fire of July 2, 2007, will be erased by the embrace of a community that came to their rescue with the dawn of the next morning.

ette party (but that’s a whole ’nother story!). Soccer Dad calls them dents, but I prefer “accoutrements.” Can y’all say that with me? “A-cu-tramonts.” They really come in handy at Meijer when Soccer Mom’s trying to figure out which of the 17 red vans is hers. Ha ha! Moving on. As I manually slide open the two side doors (you may want to put those gas masks on now), please note the unique way this seat belt has become entangled with the locking mechanism. That’s a new feature, folks! In the front row (no bucket seats here, people) you will notice a car seat held securely in place by Hubba Bubba, melted crayons, and what has to be a booger. And on this window in 2004, a lovely Tommy Tooth sticker was adhered with a combination of spit and yogurt. Now that’s something you don’t see in Soccer Dad’s car. Under the back bench, please take notice of the large pile of wrappers, sucker sticks, discarded Kleenex, McDonald’s Happy Meals toys, and yes, it’s your lucky day, people, an honest-to-God sippy cup from 2006. Wow! Go ahead, you can take a picture of that one. We are now in the forward section of the minivan. In between the two front seats, you’ll see the typical collection of water bottles, pencils, half-eaten granola bars, pacifiers and reject Yu-Gi-Oh cards. But if you’ll peer just to

i, and welcome to the Department of Kids and Recreation official Minivan Tour. My name is Soccer Mom. “Excuse me, Soccer Mom, but what’s that odor . . .” I tell you what; let’s hold all questions to the end of the tour. “But, it’s like the zoo . . .” Thank you. Now this minivan was established in the year 1998 under the direction of Dodge and was dubbed “Grand Caravan” for its extra cargo space in the rear, which can easily hold a doublewide stroller, two Danielle folding chairs, four Wilson Size 3 soccer balls, and seven gallons of milk. Purchased in 2001, it had no dents or scratches, no stains or holes in the fabric, and it gave off a fresh pine sent upon entering. All air vents were coin-free and the cassette player worked properly at that time. Before we enter the van, I’d like to point out a few interesting spots on the exterior, beginning with this sine wave-like mark along the entire left-side. That’s no custom detailing! This unique decoration came about after a rather close encounter with a mailbox two months into ownership. Now, along the other side, you’ll notice a more subtle scratch, though no less handsome. This beauty was the result of poor navigation by a seemingly sober woman who was helping the actual sober driver back out of a bar parking lot at 2 a.m. after a bachelor-

boy SCOUT COLLECTS ITEMS FOR BOSNIAN ORPHANS Bosnian widows and orphans will benefit from an Eagle project by John Wyant, a 16-year-old Carmel Boy Scout working for his Eagle rank. He is collecting notebooks, markers, pens, glue, coloring books, soccer balls, basketballs, volleyballs, bed-sheets, blankets, and group games (chess, cards, monopoly, and simple electronic games). Bosnia has been in civil war with Croatia and Slovakia for more than 10 years. The affects of war drains the resources of a country and causes poverty. Bosnia has additional issues that have increased their poverty level, due to the loss of men and an unemployment rate of 60 percent to 80 percent in a desperate economy.

Wyant’s Eagle project will foster hope for their future, further the educational needs of Bosnian orphans, and benefit the households of widows. Wyant is shipping his collection of items along with those which Central Christian Church is collecting, as led by Lynn Asbury. Donations can be dropped off at the Carmel fire station across from Town Hall, the Central Christian Church at 136th Street west of Meridian, or at Ami Gallery at 240 E. Main St., Carmel. The deadline is July 28. Wyant is a member of Boy Scout Troop 131. His older brothers, Jacob and Josh, are already Eagle Scouts. His parents are Jim and Lois Wyant.

There’s serious fun going on next to Party Time Rental at 1212 S. Range Line Road. Big kids and little kids are enjoying the moon walks, wading pools, games, dunk tanks and music all day for the low entry fee of $5. But there’s a serious side to the temporary carnival, called Bounce City, according to organizer Scott Hester of Carmel. The event, which he planned with Joe Hartley and the help of Party Time and other sponsors, is raising money to help a 13-year-old Carmel girl with cancer, as well as the American Cancer Society and Ray Tolbert’s youth camps. Hester, who owns a landscaping business

called Scottland Yard in Carmel, saw a need “for a place for kids to smile, laugh and have fun.” And help others at the same time. Bounce City will remain open through July, Hester said. Hours are 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays, there is a teen dance under a tent from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Parking is available off Carmel Drive behind the Arby’s restaurant.

CARMEL HISTORY BOOK REISSUED WITH NEW FOREWORD BY MAYOR Residents of Carmel, as they watch the city’s growth, can take a look back at what Carmel has been. The 1987 book, “Carmel, A Second Discovery” has been reprinted. The book was written to celebrate Carmel’s Sesquicentennial and highlights landmarks and residents of the period when Carmel began to grow from a community of about 650 residents to a harbinger of its current growth. “We wanted to tell about Carmel, early a sleepy village, which came to life after World War II,” says author Dorothy S. Smith. The reprint features a 2007 foreword by Mayor Dorothy James Brainard. S. Smith Jeff Smith, son of the author, undertook to republish his mother’s book. “I found that there were people interested in the history of our city,” Smith said, “but they could not readily find this book.” The volume contains all the original photos and identifies leaders who changed Carmel throughout the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and into the 1980s. Also included is history of the founding of the town in 1837 and information about early settlers and landmarks. “We had vision in 1987 and felt we had provided a firm foundation upon which the city could build in the coming years,” said the author. “But Carmel is achieving growth beyond our greatest dreams back then,” Smith has priced the book at $14.85 and it is available at Carmel Friends of the Library book store.

LEGAL BRIEFS By Douglas Haney, Esq. ITEM: Charity Gaming One of the most enjoyable ways to fund civic projects is to hold a “Las Vegas Night,” host a raffle or award door prizes. However, they may run afoul of Indiana’s gaming laws. Requirements: 1. A permitted “gaming event” includes bingo, a charity game night, a raffle, a door prize give away, and the sale of pull tabs and punch boards. 2. A “qualified organization” includes most bona fide religious, educational, senior citizens, veterans and civic organizations that operate in Indiana as nonprofit, tax-exempt entities. 3. Qualified organizations seeking a gaming license must, with a few exceptions, submit an application to the Indiana Gaming Commission. There are separate application forms for annual and single events. This process may take up to two months and include a public hearing, so plan well in advance.

DISPATCHES CITY CENTER UPDATE: Construction continues on the site of the City Center, according to Melissa Averitt, director of marketing and sales for Pedcor. Work is still mostly at ground level, as foundations are still under construction. She said Pedcor has been discussing possible participation in the project by retailers and restaurants, but no concrete deals have been signed.


4. Once licensed, the group needs to stay within its stated prize limits and hold its event in the county where it is located. Its gaming staff must also meet certain criteria set out in the Indiana Administrative Code. All advertisements must include the organization’s name and gaming license number. After the festivities are over, reports must also be maintained and filed with the Gaming Commission.

Here are some of the road projects going on in Carmel. For full details, visit the city’s Web site at 116th Street, College Avenue to Range Line Road: More sod will be placed this week with the majority of the work occurring around the Monon Trail. No additional total closures are anticipated. 136th Street, (Ditch Road to Spring Mill Road): The closure from the west side of Spring Mill to Six Points Road remains in place at this time. This closure should be completed and open to traffic around mid-August.

A gaming event is a great way to earn money for your nonprofit organization. However, remember that gambling, even for charity, is highly regulated. A failure to follow the law could result in tax liability, fines or even jail time.

136th Street (Spring Mill Road to Oak Ridge Road): The road closure is in place and construction progresses from Oak Ridge Road to the east side of Spring Mill. The closure is for through traffic and access to destinations within the closure is being maintained.

Old Meridian Street, Pennsylvania Street to Guilford Road: Construction continues under traffic on the project. The intersection of Main Street and Old Meridian remains closed for roundabout construction; however, this intersection is anticipated to reopen to traffic this week.

Spirituality “Letting it all hang out” on earth isn’t what God has in mind for us; worshipping Him is how he wants us to “get real.” One critical thing to remember: God is a red-hot, jealous God. The Jews, His beloved and chosen people, found out time and again that God’s wrath is immense and perfect. As a Christian, never forgetting Jesus was a Jew, I know that God’s wrath is coming again one of these days, and reading those Old Testament prophecies makes me want to straighten up my act.

believe Satan is real and that he fights for our hearts, minds and souls right along with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Is it a fair fight? It sure seems Satan expends less effort getting our attention than God. Our desires of earthly life — wanting what’s pleasing, comfortable, safe — are exactly what Satan wants us to have, in exchange for eternal condemnation of our souls. It sounds bad, I know, but is “eternal condemnation” real? Should we worry about it?” Christ’s promise of “eternal salvation” sounds better, but we can’t see either one and “eternal” is such a long time. Someone will change their mind, so why not just let it all hang out while we can, look out for No. 1, be real and let me “get mine” while I’m here to get it? Helpful hint: “No. 1” isn’t me. It’s God … and He’s paying attention. The Bible gives us God’s complete outline for building our relationship

K, you’re a company that is ready to tell your story online and be transparent. But how do you combat others telling your story in a less than flattering way? It happens more frequently than you think, especially to children whose social lives are dominated by the Internet. In that context, it is sometimes referred to as “cyber bullying.” From the schoolyard to the Internet, cyber bullies post unflattering comments and often make false statements — it can even result in a threatening situation for kids. The same thing can happen to a business. A disgruntled customer David Cain or employee or even On Marketing a competitor can post unflattering comments and untrue statements online. Want a great example? How about the iPhone? It is receiving much press these days, some good and some bad. It is being blogged about all over the Internet. Again, some good comments and some very negative. I just read a blog post called “iPhone, iPass.”

How Apple and other businesses choose to combat this type of online criticism is the same type of strategy you would use in the offline world. They post information that counters this information. Business owners should always monitor press — online and offline — so they know what is being said about their businesses. If false statements and negative chatter arise, they should post the counter views on their own Web sites and blogs. If the comments are so outlandish that no one would believe them to be true, no response would be appropriate. So how do you monitor online activity? A simple, yet effective way is using an application like Google reader. This aggregator will allow you to set triggers that will deliver a message in your inbox if someone uses a certain term on the Internet. I set a trigger that delivers me a message anytime the name “MediaSauce” is used on the Internet — in a blog, on a Web site, in a press release. I can then follow the link to the full story and see what was said. Another way would be to use a search engine (e.g., Google, Yahoo) and check your business name to see what comes up. In today’s world, all businesses must be aware of what is being said about their company,


products, and culture online. You must understand your “digital profile” so you can be prepared to counter negative statements – it is the new world basic public relations. David Cain is president of MediaSauce, a digital marketing company in Carmel. David welcomes your comments at

WHAT’S IT WORTH? By John Pacilio, RE/MAX Ability Plus IN MY OPINION:

$240,000 • Type: Traditional Salt Box Style • Age: Built in 1976 • Location: North of Main Street and East of Carmel High School. • Neighborhood: Harrowgate has homes ranging from $180,000$245,000. • Square footage: 2,200 square feet with an additional 1,100 square feet in the finished walk-out basement. • Rooms: This home has four upstairs bedrooms, four total baths including a half bath on both the main floor and basement, and a first floor office. • Strengths: Unlike most homes in this price range, this home has a unique custom design. The sizable lot offers mature trees and great landscaping. Walk to Carmel High School, the public library and the popular Arts & Design District.

• Challenges: As with many 30year-old homes, the homeowners have recently put a lot of money into improving the home. In addition to installing a new roof, HVAC, and siding, they have replaced many windows and added an additional bathroom to bring the home up to today’s standards.

EAT THOSE KIDNEY BEANS: Kidney beans are the ultimate brain food. Their high levels of fiber lower cholesterol and foster a steady energy supply to the brain. The folate lowers artery-damaging homocysteine and boosts neurotransmitters to improve alertness, memory and mood. They also contain iron, which aids cognition by making enzymes essential for neurotransmitter function; thiamin (vitamin B1), an attention and memory aid; and tryptophan, a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin. — EXERCISE YOUR BACK: What’s the best exercise for a bad back? The lying chest raise. It’s great for preventing lower back pain and for rehabilitation after an injury — as long as your doctor has given you the go-ahead. Lie on your stomach, keeping your hips and pelvis flat. With your hands under your chin (or in a pushup position to assist in lifting, if necessary), contract your lower back muscles and lift your chest about 30 degrees off the floor. Hold, then slowly lower. Repeat five times. —

It’s hard to believe, but the time is rapidly approaching when college students have to start preparing to go back to college or maybe off to college for their first time. A large part of this preparation is to make sure that they have a good computer. It is practically impossible to manage college life without it. Whether it is the social scene with on-line chat groups, e-mail, and downloads, or they are actually using the computer to study, do research, and write papers, it is critical to have the right computer and software. If you’re looking to purchase a new computer you may have already heard all the issues with Microsoft’s new operating system called Windows Vista. It is difficult to find anyone selling new computers with XP on them unless you specifically request it or have the computer custom built. Although Vista has some bugs, it is still a good operating system. The problem with Vista (as it is with any new operating system when it is introduced) is that many of the peripherals that you connect to the computer will not work. The needed drivers have simply not been designed yet and depending on the device may never be designed. For example, printers that are more

than a year old, cell phones, PDAs, and digital cameras, are among many of the devices that will most likely not work with Vista yet. Another of our sons is going off to college this year, and we asked the college if it was Vista-ready. The answer was not yet. This means

that many of the services they provide to students will not be available on the computers with Vista. They are working on updating this but did not know how soon it could be done. So what options do you have? You can purchase a new computer with Vista and then deal with all the problems or you can have Vista replaced with Windows XP. All new computers with Vista installed are capable of running Windows XP and will actually be much faster when running XP. Almost all colleges offer software to their students at such a low cost that making this change is quite affordable. Just one thing you should remember. When you load the new operating system you will lose all of your data unless you have it backed up. You can bring it back after the installation. If all this sounds too confusing or more than you want to tackle, seek professional help to make the change. But don’t send your student off to college with a computer that will not work for them.

cattered throughout Carmel are several neighborhoods with pockets of ground moisture issues. Underground springs cause many, as do developmental issues, little boys’ outdoor peeing habits, improper grading and downspout placement. So, what’s a homeowner to do with a lawn that is a pain to mow and a party hangout for mosquitoes? “Don’t fight the site” and create a rain garden! Perennial rain gardens are a colorful solution and Randy Sorrell surprisingly simple to Outdoors install, unless you’re the one on the digging end of a shovel. After creating a two-foot to six-foot-deep, gradually sloping depression in the respectably sized moist area, simply plant a good mixture of native wetland and prairie wildflowers and grasses. Some of our favorites you’ve already admired in Carmel’s parks and grow freely along roadsides and streambeds. False dragons head, cardinal flower, wild blue

flag iris and sweet flag are consistent flowering natives that graced our land centuries ago. The grasses (river bulrush, soft-stemmed bulrush, torreys rush, fox sedge and bottle brush sedge) produce cool seed heads that generate winter interest and resemble some elegant grasses used in more formal landscape settings. Mulch lightly, don’t fertilize, add a few boulders for interest and a purple martin house if you are a “birder.” If you care to have more of a ponding affect, dig a little deeper and confirm that it retains water. If not, inexpensive liners are widely available, but will require that you plant around the edge. Make certain to not interrupt the lawn’s natural drainage flow. It’s best to install a four-inch drain tile for water to exit in heavy rains. Maintenance is simple, too. Keep wet for a few months (the naturally moist area should suffice) and mow it down every spring. Pull

The old standard, alkyd or oil-based paints are disappearing from the shelves of paint stores in states from California to New York. The air hazard from the VOC level (volatile organic compound), coupled with the contamination of landfills, has numbered the days of a product that has been the mainstay of most trim painters for decades. Paint companies such as Sherwin-Williams have developed products that offer maximum performance, long-term durability and have the highest indoor air quality ratings for low VOC and low odor. I first heard of this product several years ago when it was introduced as a paint that could be used in buildings that were occupied by those sensitive to paint fumes,

such as nursing home residents. Harmony Interior Latex is an environmentally preferred interior house paint that is designed with antimicrobial properties. This Latex paint offers a zero-VOC, low odor and silica-free coating that allows Vicky Earley occupancy of newly Decor painted spaces. The waterborne formula is available as a primer and a topcoat in eggshell, flat and semi-gloss finishes. Shaw flooring has answered the call to “green-up” with environmentally friendly flooring products, such as Evergreen Recycled nylon. The traditional approach to the manufacturing of synthetic products such as carpet requires that raw materials be taken from the earth, made into a specific product, and after consumption, sent to overflowing landfills. By converting the post-consumer nylon carpet back to the raw material and then the new fiber, the positive impact on the

landfill is substantial. Hardwood flooring has taken an envirofriendly turn, as well. The Epic line of hardwood by Shaw uses 50 percent less newly forested wood. The core is made of compressed wood fiber that would have, otherwise, been destined for the landfill. Looking ahead to advances on the horizon for environmentally friendly interiors, look for these products to arrive: • Within two years, look for lightemitting diodes to replace incandescent and florescent lighting. This is the oscillation of electrons in bundled semiconductors to produce light. Some LEDs already achieve the efficiency of compact fluorescents and are now well on their way to exceeding it. • Vacuum-insulated paneling is about 10 years away but it has the potential of R-30 insulation. Airtight panels with evacuated cores take advantage of the principle behind a Thermos bottle. Far more research is required to move these panels into home construction, but it could make fiberglass batt insulation and expanded polyurethane insulation obsolete.

Thanks to publicity surrounding the new Be Indypendent/Buy Indy Art campaign, artist Casey Roberts had a spectacular First Friday in July. The painter sold three of the six unfinished works on paper that were hanging in his Fountain Square studio that night. Several people made arrangements to return to consider the other framed and unframed landscapes and abstract paintings displayed in the Murphy Art Center space that Roberts shares with two other artists. “We definitely took this First Friday more seriously because of the additional press coverage,” Roberts said towards midnight, as the July 6 event was winding down. “We really got behind the new initiative, which puts out there the idea of people buying art from local artists.” Roberts noted that at least 15 people talked to him about the Buy Indy Art program,

and he thought the open studio drew a larger crowd than usual for a First Friday Art Tour because of the extra publicity. Through the Be Indypendent/Buy Indy Art program, launched on July 4, the Arts Council of Indianapolis is promoting the purchase of creative works by local artists such as Roberts. The initiative, a joint project of ACI and the Indianapolis Cultural Development Commission, encourages residents of central Indiana to purchase works of fine art created by Indianapolis-area artists.

Online resources include a Web site (www. with a beginner’s guide to buying art objects and a link to a database of more than 600 local artists. Consumers can check out listed artists’ background and upcoming shows before making purchases, as well as discover new artists whose work they might want to acquire. “High-quality work is being produced here in the Indianapolis area, and we’re out to showcase that,” said Shannon Linker, director of artist services, ACI. “This is Indy’s cultural version of the ‘buy local’ movement,” said Jenny Guimont, director of the Indianapolis Cultural Development Commission. The program launch included a First Friday after party at ALCHEMY art + aesthetics in Fountain Square, where ACI handed out promotional materials. Among the giveaways are square stickers by Hamilton County painter Gayla Hodson — one of just six local

artists singled out for special recognition. The black-and-white “Be Indypendent/Buy Indy Art” bumper stickers and colorful square stickers, along with a directory of Indianapolis and surrounding-area art galleries, are available at the Carmel Arts & Design District office at 111 W.

Silent in the Grave includes bold characters, an atmospheric setting and romantic suspense. Author Raybourn pairs her well-educated female sleuth with a dark, romantic hero who is part Sherlock Holmes and part Heathcliff. Raybourn richly describes the class system and social conditions of Victorian London. Silent in the Grave may appeal to readers who enjoy the Victorian mysteries of Anne Perry, the historical romance novels of Amanda Quick or Michel Faber’s doorstopper novel The Crimson Petal and the White.
