OUR VIEWS

It is our position while the Indiana Department of Education no longer requires cursive handwriting to be included in elementary school curriculum, good penmanship and knowledge of cursive is still a valued lesson. Indiana is among 46 states following the recommendations of a national Common Core Curriculum that is placing emphasis on teaching proficient keyboarding in the classroom over perfecting handwriting. While typing is an important life skill in the information age, it should not be the sole method of communicating. The most obvious question is, how will future generations sign their names? Didn’t an “X” carved in stone die with the cavemen? What a shame a handwritten note from a grandparent, a person from another country or even our nation’s own Declaration of Independence won’t be able to be read by future generations. Handwriting is much more than a communications tool. It is part of one’s personality and artistic expression - a personal signature, if you will. Ironically, even though we are living in an era of technological advancement that enables more personalization than ever before, a dichotomy of desensitization is also being created by muffling the human voice, and now, eliminating handwritten expression.

Raise my taxes

It is our position to find additional sources of revenue necessary to eliminate the national debt. Some of that additional revenue should come from the elimination of corporate giveaways and some of that additional revenue should come from the most fortunate among us, including some of us here in Hamilton County. The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform says the national debt crisis is the most predictable crisis we have ever faced. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, testified in front of Congress that the national debt is the greatest threat to national security our country currently faces. We must immediately put our country on a path towards the elimination of the national debt and increasing revenue is a necessary piece of that path. If the reduced spending currently being discussed eliminates $2 trillion of our national debt over the next ten years, where will the remaining $12 trillion come from? Certainly, all fonts should be considered, but reasonable policy must include the highest earners in addition to the much broader base of Americans. Entitlement reform and restricted revenue must walk together. With significant reductions in debt interest expense, permanent tax elimination and reform becomes more likely.

STORIES OF HOPE

Mayor Jim Brainard has commissioned a study on the establishment of a limited-hours health clinic for city employees. When we first heard of it, it seemed like a fine idea, considering the overly successful wellness programs already in place for employees and the possibility that it would make the workers even healthier. However, after reflection, it’s not. Consider the benefits already provided to full-time workers (they far exceed those most of us have), and then apply an automotive parallel, like this: You drive a Bentley and you end up trading it in on a Ferrari. What’s the point? How much better can great get? How much more should the taxpayers shoulder? We’re all for wellness and detection in every sector of this city. We’re also overwhelmingly in favor of city employees being benefitted the same way the private sector is, or put another way, given a measured dose of reality. We believe the mayor’s heart is in the right place on this, but it might be beating a bit too fast. ••• Answer: No. Question: Should Carmel City Council members be entitled to taxpayersupported health insurance?

Stress tests and reality checks

Chaucie’s Place looking to top last year’s record fundraiser

a room when I’m joined by two women, one an RN who will monitor my BP and EKG, and the other a technician who will run the ultrasound equipment. She proceeds to attach a dozen wires to my naked chest with an adhesive that stings so badly I initially think I am being electrocuted. After some baseline readings, I hop on the treadmill and begin. My nurse tells me she will slowly, but consistently increase both the speed and incline until I reach my target heart rate of 180. If I get too tired (or collapse) before that, I am to stop immediately. Naively, I estimate 30 to 40 minutes before I get there. Ha. 12 minutes later, clutching the handrail for dear life, I surrender with a max heart rate of only 165. I quickly lie down and attempt to hold my breath so the tech can perform a post-test ultrasound. As I fight hyperventilation, I cannot believe I only made it twelve stinkin’ minutes! Is there something wrong? Or is it just I’m a bit plusher than I thought? I drive home pondering worst-case scenarios. But nay, this is not my time. The stress test came back negative, and my EKG’s were normal. Apparently, it’s just my ego that’s a little on the unhealthy side. Peace out.

Current in Carmel A local child advocacy center is wishing for some big waves in fundraising success this year. Chaucie’s Place is building off of last year’s record fundraising amounts and bringing some tropical flavor to the effort. The Carmel child advocacy center provides a single location where forensic interviewers and law enforcement officers can interview child abuse victims. The center is celebrating its tenth year of protecting children in Hamilton County. Last year the center earned its highest amount of fundraising dollars with record amounts being raised during its largest two annual events. This year, Chaucie’s Place hopes to see continued support from the community. Treasure Our Children is the CAC’s biggest annual fundraiser, it raised a record $28,000 in 2010. 225 people attended the sold out event. This year’s Treasure Our Children, sponsored in part by Current Publishing, will be held October 13, 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Ritz Charles in Carmel, 12156 N. Meridian St. The event will be beach themed, with casual beach attire encouraged. Live and silent auctions will be held. Tickets are $60 per person or $550 for a table of eight. Each ticket comes with a complimentary drink ticket. For tickets or more details, e-mail rsvp@ chauciesplace.org.

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson Guess who got to take a cardiac stress test? Yours truly, that’s who. Some background first: I’ve been having these weird heart palpitations for about a year now. When I first noticed them, I was living with my in-laws, interviewing for jobs and trying to buy a house. Naturally, I assumed they were stress-related. By the fall, life had started to settle, but I continued to experience, what felt like, missed heartbeats periodically. My next thought was my thyroid, so I scheduled an appointment with my endocrinologist. Everything was fine on that end, but she did suggest I cut back on caffeine. I took her advice, but no dice. Teaching, lounging, driving, it didn’t seem to matter; I would occasionally experience a noticeable pause in my heartbeat. So I finally decided to call in the big dogs. “There are about 50 things that could be causing these palpations,” the cardiologist said, “and about 10 of them could kill you. Let’s rule those out first.” Yes. Let’s. Back to live action: I show up for my stress test in “comfortable clothing,” confident I will make someone’s day with an outstanding performance. But I have to climb three sets of stairs due to malfunctioning elevators, and I am already breathing hard when I check in. No worries. Just treat it like a warm-up, I think. I receive a hospital wrist band then ushered to

Firefighters take on the world in global games COMMENTARY By Jeff Worrell They fully intend to bring home the Gold. But no matter the outcome, they want to be in New York City for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 to honor their fellow firefighters who gave their lives. Captain Jim Spelbring of the Carmel Fire Department is leading a team which will compete in the World Police and Fire Games. The semiannual event is the equivalent to the Olympics for men and women safety professionals across the globe. Carmel Indiana will be well represented for the first time since the 2001 games were held in Indianapolis. Accompanying Captain Spelbring to NYC as team members are Greg Webb, Rick Martin and Steve Baskerville. The Firefighters From Carmel are competing in the bowling competition. They have set their sights high, but also understand and appreciate the opportunity to interact with thousands of other firefighters from faraway places speaking languages of which they will not understand, but share a common bond. Spelbring said, “Firefighters are part of a brother and sisterhood that is hard to explain but easy to

experience. I am looking forward to competing and more importantly, making new friends.” He also said, “On the 10th anniversary, I had to be there.” The foursome is making the trip to New York paying their own expenses and using vacation time to be away from work. Technically not sponsored or sanctioned by the Carmel Fire Department, their custom T-Shirts donated by a local company will leave no doubt the best bowling team is from Carmel. Captain Spelbring is looking for sponsors to help defray travel and lodging costs for the team. Should you be so inclined, contact Jim at 317-5712600 or JSpelbring@carmel.in.gov. The Carmel Firefighter Bowling Team will return to Carmel on Spetember 4. Whether they arrive home with or without gold, silver or bronze in hand, we know they gave it their best and proudly represented all of the public safety personnel working in Carmel.

Council approves trash ordinance Current in Carmel After months of discussions and numerous amendments, citywide trash and recycling services will soon be coming to Carmel. The City Council last week approved a revised Sharp version of an ordinance allowing the city to select one service provider for all residents. The purpose of the ordinance was to provide residents with both trash and recycling services for about 50 percent less than many are spending on trash services alone when selecting their own providers. Republic will begin providing citywide trash and recycling services beginning Jan. 1, 2012, and these services will cost residents $8.82 per household, per month before increasing every year in the next four years. The city will keep $.25 per household per month to cover service calls, billing and other customer service operations. However, in an effort to accommodate those who are not in favor of the change, the council approved an amended version of the ordinance that, among many other revisions, included an opt-out clause. “It became clear quickly that this rubbish

6 | July 26, 2011

ordinance was headed for the rubbish if there was not an opt-out option available across the board,” said Councilman Rick Sharp. Residents will have an opportunity later this year to opt out of this plan if they wish to use a third party service provider. While the council originally discussed an opt-out window occurring in December, Council President Eric Seidensticker said the window likely will be sooner than the last month of the year. The exact month will be determined at the next council meeting, he said, adding that it could begin as many as 90 days before the new year and the beginning of the citywide trash services. Opting out only applies to the following calendar year. For example, residents who opt out for 2012 in the coming months also would need to opt out one year later for 2013. Residents who opt out of the plan and change their minds may opt back in at any time; however, residents wanting to opt out only can do so during the 30-day window. As the deal on which it bid has changed, Republic has the right to get out of the deal itself and rebid if the number of participating households drops below 20,000. If Republic does not get out of the deal, the current contract will last for five years.

Trash: The final frontier COMMENTARY By Luci Snyder The long saga of the trash ordinance has come to an end. Proposed by the administration at the behest of people interested in recycling, researched by the Utilities Department and ending up, as most things eventually do, at the City Council for a final vote up or down…it has been a bumpy ride. The issues were varied and everyone had an opinion because we all have trash, we know what we pay and we think it’s easy to understand - unless you are the ones charged with making the decision that contractually binds every household in this city for five years. Woe to you, City Council, if people are unhappy. Mindful of Carmel’s infinite variety, the council chose a careful path and, after making sure we understood all the nuances, made sure that everyone in the city understood them as well. We complied and sent out a flyer in the one thing that we knew people would open: their water bill. It was a last-ditch effort to ensure that no one could say they didn’t know about it. We found out, despite a flawed survey, that a sizeable percentage (but not a majority) did not want government to make any decisions for them that they could make themselves and that one size most assuredly did not fit all. How to solve the dilemma of freedom of choice versus a government contract that covers everyone? There appears to be no middle

ground here, but there is. We decided that we would alter the contract of the winning bidder to allow people to “opt out” and allowing the others to enjoy what they perceive as the benefits of economies of scale. Those who have special requirements or resist government making their decisions are free to choose. Those for whom price and recycling are paramount also will win. Republic has only to agree to this decision. And why wouldn’t they, with what appears to be the majority of households wanting to be under this contract? For those who say that’s not enough recycling, the council will pass a follow-up ordinance requiring that all haulers who service Carmel offer recycling in their base package. And to safeguard our residents who were worried about poor service with a single provider, at the end of each year, there will be a window for citizens to opt out if they are not satisfied with the service, thus giving the hauler an incentive for top performance. The City Council has attempted to inform, listen and satisfy as many citizens as we can and if this process took a bit longer than some advocates would have liked, well, that’s what representative government is all about.

Current asks what the public’s role will be in supporting The Center for the Performing Arts in its upcoming season By Marc Allan & Jordan Fischer Current in Carmel Steve Gerardi saw the stories about Carmel’s Center for the Performing Arts possibly requesting a subsidy of as much as $4 million next year and had a one-word reaction: “Why?” “Concerts are supposed to at least break even – and hopefully make a profit,” said Gerardi, who’s worked in concert promotions locally for more than 25 years, mostly with Sunshine Promotions and, more recently, on his own. “They shouldn’t need $4 million – or anywhere close to that – especially when they’re saying they’ve sold 93 to 96 percent of their tickets.” But the 2010-2011 concert series at the Palladium did make a profit from its 24 performances – a little more than $370,000. In fact, the partial season on a whole reported slightly under a $50,000 surplus in a preliminary, unaudited report presented to the Carmel City Council on July 18. Steven Libman, president and CEO of the Center for the Performing Arts, said an apples-to-apples comparison between the non-profit center and for-profit concert venues like Noblesville’s Verizon Wireless Music Center overlooks the large number of additional services performing arts centers traditionally offer. In addition to 81 performances scheduled for the upcoming 20112012 season, Carmel’s Center for the Performing Arts will house artistic director Michael Feinstein’s “Great American Songbook” collection, fund a full educational outreach program, and house seven resident companies, among them the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre, the largest community theatre in Indiana and one of the 10 largest in the United States. “Venues like a Verizon Wireless exist solely to make money,” Libman said. “We exist to serve the entire community.” Libman said the $4 million figure widely reported in local media as his 2011-2012 grant request from the City of Carmel is “speculative.” He did acknowledge, however, that the amount requested for the upcoming season – which has a projected budget of $13.5 million – would not be lower than the $2 million provided by the city in the previous season. “There is no Center for the Performing Arts without funding from the city,” Libman said.

Apples to apples

Performing arts complexes typically do get some public subsidy. That amount can vary significantly based on several factors, among them the age of the facility, size of endowment, and, perhaps most importantly, whether the center was created by public entity like the City of Carmel, or a private arts organization. The 19-year-old North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center receives $918,000 -- $168,000 from the City of Charlotte and $750,000 from the county. Those government reimbursements are used to maintain the buildings, which are owned by the city and county, a spokesman said. In Tampa, Florida, the publicly-owned Straz Center for the Performing Arts, which opened 24 years ago and bills itself as the largest performing arts center south of the Kennedy Center, receives a $450,000 operating subsidy from the city. The Straz has a $35 million annual operating budget.

“I would have to charge an average of $200, and sell out every show, for it to cover the total cost of the center.” -Steven Libman After 32 years in operation, the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines (Iowa) receives $300,000, largely from hotel-motel taxes, toward an annual budget of $15 million, said Director of Development Todd Fogdall. Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center, owned by Miami-Dade County, opened in 2006 with an initial $3.75 million subsidy from the county, but required an additional $4.1 million bailout of county funds. Its 2010-2011 season reported an operating budget of $22 million, with a $7 million public subsidy. The Mesa Arts Center in Arizona, opened in 2005, is wholly owned and operated by the City of Mesa, which funds $6 million of the center’s $10 million operating budget. According to Executive Director Cindy Ornstein, the city has seen dividends returned on its investment in the center. “We brought in 330,000 visitors last year right into the heart of downtown Mesa,” Ornstein said. “That’s beneficial; both in

the money people spend, and people seeing we have a charming downtown. I believe that one of the biggest impacts the art center has had is in reinforcing to people that Mesa is a place committed to the arts and education, and it’s a place they should want to place down roots.” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard has said he expects the Center for the Performing Arts to need a subsidy for the foreseeable future. He considers the center to be an investment that will pay the city back in new businesses, jobs and the tax revenues they generate. Other performing arts centers echo that view. The Blumenthal Center boasts that it infuses $52 million annually into Charlotte’s economy. “We use the economic data supplied by the Broadway League which has studied this nationally, including Charlotte,” public relations coordinator Danny Knaub said. “The multiplier is $2.50 of economic impact for every one dollar of ticket value. So, if we have $20 million in ticket sales, then the economic impact is estimated at $50 million.” According to Libman and John Hughey, public relations manager for Carmel’s Center for the Performing Arts, the center estimates its local economic impact for the upcoming season at $7.5 million.

Confident, concerned

While Libman maintains that no formal request for funds has been made, and declined to speculate on what that number might eventually be, city council members say with the operating budget increasing from $7.6 million to $13.5 million in the 2011-2012 season, it’s only reasonable to expect the center’s grant request to increase proportionally. “The assumption was, he’s doubling the budget, he’s going to double the amount he’ll be asking for,” said Council President Seidensticker Eric Seidensticker. He added that, with the center’s budget increasing by about 50 percent, a “reasonable guesstimate” might be that the center will request $3 million.

Unaudited numbers as of July 18. Center for the Performing Arts projected season numbers.

Continued from page 9 Seidensticker said while he’s sure the center will receive some amount of funding from the city, anything above the $2 million given last year “will be a struggle.” “You have to be pragmatic in your approach about funding,” Seidensticker said. “You can’t give them everything, because we should not be in the business of subsidizing anything other than those items that government was built for, and that is to provide health, safety and welfare. A facility like this steps well outside of that. But it’s built. It’s there.” Seidensticker and fellow council member Rick Sharp said they believe more effort should be put into looking for alternative funding sources. Sharp also said that he’d like to see efforts to create a planned $50 million endowment pick up. Sharp “The bottom line to all of this is, the fundraising that was supposed to be raised from the private sector never materialized,” Sharp said. “The crystal point, from my thinking is, what you need to open and operate the facility is cash, and there was no cash raised. So that’s what put us in the point of having to help subsidize the hall.” Despite his concerns, Sharp said he has an “enormous faith” in Libman’s ability to do the job. “I absolutely think he’s the right man for the job,” Sharp said. Libman said he hopes by the center’s sixth year of operation to begin reducing its dependence upon the city through private donations and other revenue sources. “I’d love to see that timeframe move faster, but I think that sounds like a relatively realistic approach,” Sharp said. “I don’t want to be sold pie in the sky.” While Sharp and Seidensticker both accept the reality that the city will likely be providing some funding to the center in perpetuity, they stressed that the city’s resources are not unlimited. “I understand that we can’t allow it to fail this early,” Seidensticker said. “But, if in five to 10 years we’re still contributing at this level, we have a major problem.”

10 | July 26, 2011

“There’s only a certain amount of money the city has access to,” he continued. “If the money’s not there, the center isn’t going to get it. We’re not going to take away the health and safety obligations to the taxpayer simply to fund a performing arts center.” Sharp agreed, saying the city’s liability in the case of a default on an $80 million bond issued to construct the Palladium does not mean a blank check for the center. “The bottom line is: Those are not obligations of the City of Carmel,” Sharp said. “If some disaster that we can’t foresee today occurred in our budget process, and we had to go to the foundation and say we’re terribly sorry but we can only give you $300,000 this year… my obligation to keep the bond from being supported by a tax increase is not an open-ended obligation. I’m not going to bankrupt the city to avoid a tax increase.” All parties involved point to private funding, and the creation of an endowment, as the long term solution. According to Mesa’s Ornstein, whose center boasts corporate sponsorships from Target, Boeing, American Express and Blue Cross Blue Shield, the biggest factor in increasing those donations is a successful track record. “It’s about the community making a long term investment,” Ornstein said. “The thing is about endowment, is an endowment gift is a statement about an individual or company’s belief in the importance of the sustainability in perpetuity of that organization,” she said. “That kind of affinity, that kind of strong sense of ownership, is developed through experience. It’s in seeing that organization’s impact in the community which inspires that individual or organization to contribute. So it’s hard for a new organization to develop an endowment as it just comes on the scene.” Ornstein stressed the importance of people taking the “long view” when it comes to performing arts centers. “Nothing happens overnight,” she said. “But, cumulatively, a gem of a facility with a quality program is going to be a definite boon to the economic development of the city, and of the region.” For his part, Libman agrees. “We have to ask, what would life be like without the Center for the Performing Arts?” Libman said. “I think boring.”

Italian Pork Chops Ingredients • 4 (1 inch thick) boneless pork chops • Kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste • 4 slices capocollo ham • 4 slices fresh Indiana tomato • 4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil • Chopped fresh oregano to taste • Paprika to taste Directions 1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium direct heat, and lightly oil the grate. 2. Rub olive oil on chops and sprinkle with salt and black pepper, and grill until the chops are browned, and show good grill marks. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read 140 to 145 degrees F. 3. Place capocollo ham, tomato, and fresh mozzarella cheese slices on each pork chop, and sprinkle with oregano and paprika; cook until the cheese has melted, about 2 more minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Remember, dry pork

chops come from overcooking and pork chops finished correctly are more juicy and tender. Throw out the “no pink pork” rule and substitute it with a “slightly pink is OK” attitude!

“It is as good as anything I have seen on Broadway. I am so happy you have found Carmel, or perhaps I should say, Carmel found you, to share your talents for all who appreciate good entertainment. I may see it again.”

Devised by Benny Green and Alan Strachan

In this long running Off-Broadway hit musical revue, Forbidden Broadway pokes, prods, teases and lampoons anything Broadway has to offer- but always with love. This cannon of witty and oftentimes brilliant parodies is a time capsule of the American Theatre. Journey through more than 20 Broadway shows and spend the evening with Carol Channing, Julie Andrews, Ethel Merman, not to mention the casts of The Lion King, Wicked, Mamma Mia, Hairspray and so many more in this entertaining tribute to some of Broadway’s greatest shows and stars!

This sophisticated musical about Indiana’s favorite son, Cole Porter, cleverly crafts song and dance, while intertwining narration to tell the story of Porter’s life. Beginning in Peru, Indiana to Paris, to the bright lights of Broadway, to Hollywood, the show includes such Cole Porter hits as “I Love Paris”, “Anything Goes”, “Night & Day”, “ I Get A Kick Out of You”....

“A great show-lots of laugh out loud scenes- a great evening outand there are no bad seats!! Go and enjoy!” -Joy Stafford Carmel, IN

This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as ‘the relationship.’ Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, ‘Say, what are you doing Saturday night?’

FEBRUARY 10-26, 2012 Written by Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak

Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, “Godspell” boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day By Day.” As the cast performs “Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All For The Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side,” the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life.

Flex some fun with mussels Cooking By Clint Smith Sometimes what hits the spot is neither a full meal nor a nibble, but something in between. Steamed mussels are fun because they’re communal. Imagine this: a casual evening with friends, maybe on the weekend, maybe lounging outside. A table loaded with finger foods with a variety of wines and beverages. Imagine the music whistling through the air and the sounds of laughter from your guests as they relax and eat your latest creation. Several local markets stock fresh mussels, but save yourself a dead-end investigation by calling ahead, ask about availability and perishability. Scrutinize the mussels. If the shells are slightly

Steamed mussels with homemade fries Serve 4 Ingredients • 3 pounds fresh mussels, scrubbed, debearded • 4 ounces unsalted butter • 1 shallot, minced • 1 cup dry white wine • 2-3 sprigs Italian parsley • To taste, kosher salt and cracked black pepper • 2 Idaho potatoes • As needed for frying, peanut oil

open, tap the top with a knife; if it snaps shut, you’re good to go. But if the shell remains open, pitch it in the garbage. Use a coarse brush to scrub the shells under cold running water. Immediately before cooking, use your fingers (or needle-nose pliers) to yank away the small cluster of threads running along the hinge, this is called “debearding.” Last tip: after eating a mussel, use the shells as impromptu tongs on the remaining mussels. Steamed mussels are an impressive culinary contribution to any dinner party, or an ideal way to recreate a bistro vibe at home.

Directions 1. For fries: peel potatoes, cut into long batons. Soak in cold water to prevent oxidization; leave in water for at least an hour before rinsing under cold water (to remove starch). In a highsided pot, heat peanut oil to around 275°F. Blanch the potatoes for several minutes until they become translucent; remove and scatter on a baking sheet; rest for 15 minutes. Increase the oil’s heat to 375°F.; drop fries back in and fry until crisp. Drain on paper towel. Place in a large bowl and toss with table salt. 2. Mussels: heat two ounces butter in large pot; sauté shallots. Add wine, bringing to a boil. Maintain heat. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in mussels in a place lid on pot. Cook for roughly 10 minutes or until mussels have all opened. Add parsley, replace lid and shake the pot. Add remaining two ounces of butter, shake pot again, and serve mussels immediately with broth.

Seniors reap rewards of aquatic therapy By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com For seniors looking to combat the aches and pains that come with growing older, aquatic therapy offers a low-impact approach as simple as taking bath. National health organizations like the Center for Disease Control and the Arthritis Foundation tout the benefits of aquatic therapy for adults suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, patients recovering from strokes, and adults who would otherwise be prevented from exercising. According to Sally Brindle, aquatic program coordinator at the Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center of Indianapolis, a decade of teaching aquatic therapy classes has only reaffirmed her belief Brindle in their value. “I fell in love with the program and what it did for people,” Brindle said. According to Brindle, two unique properties of water – buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure – are what make it perfect for many seniors. “People who can’t walk on land often can walk in water,” Brindle said. “Your buoyancy in

the water takes the pressure off of your joints, while also acting as a natural resistance. The hydrostatic pressure helps massage joints and muscles, and it’s very good for those with edema.” Brindle’s students rave about aquatic therapy as well. Bob Bernard, 72, said his work in the pool keeps him fit enough to continue his work on stage as a performer. “I have arthritis, but I’m also an entertainer,” Bernard said. “Part of my performance includes choreography. The water exercise helps keep me looser so that I can do the steps required of my dance act.” Five year class veteran Pat Pothast has joined Brindle within the last year as a certified instructor, and said her time as both student and teacher demonstrate the value of the therapy. “I have fibromyalgia,” Pothast said, “So my doctor recommended I take water classes. In the beginning, it was very hard, and I just felt lousy. But I just kept coming, and started feeling better.” Her time spent in the pool also sped up her

recovery after surgery, Pothast said. “I have to take a steroid to keep my blood pressure from bottoming out, but steroids destroy your bones,” she said. “So I had to have a

hip replacement. After that, though, I was out of bed and walking around within two days because my muscles were so strong from coming here.”

Straighten Up! COMMEntaRY By Marcia Wilson “Stand up straight!” These are words most kids have heard from our mothers. Slouching usually led to “the look” or a lecture on posture. Some children may have even been forced to practice walking with a book on your head. Well, mom does know best. Although Mom was likely concerned about etiquette and appearance, good posture has health benefits. So try this for just a moment: sit up straight, both feet on the floor, pelvis tilted. Tighten your stomach muscles and feel the slight arch in the back. Now, lift your shoulders up then push them back and down, neck straight and head up with the chin slightly tucked.  Hold that – hold it, hold it…and relax. Who knew core strengthening was so simple. You can practice sitting, standing, walking, even while watching TV – and it doesn’t take any extra time out of your day or special equipment.  Oh sure, roll your eyes. How can something so simple make a difference? Good posture helps breathing and oxygen is a good thing. Plus, it helps with circulation. Following mom’s advice, can help anti-aging and can even drop some pounds. Straightening up trims you down? When the shoulders droop an additional 20 pounds is tacked on- 10 pounds from your head. I’m sure mom is saying “told you so” right about now. It’s a myth our posture has to go the way of gravity as we age, but we have to straighten up if we want to continue to be able to straighten up! You don’t have to practice perfect posture every waking moment, but try incorporating a little into your daily routine. It’s an exercise you can do seven days a week, it costs no time or money, and the more you do it the easier it gets. Plus, Mom would be proud. So at the risk of sounding like your mother, straighten up! You might be surprised.  Turns out looking good really can make you feel good. Marcia Wilson holds an M.A. in gerontology and teaches Body Recall, an exercise class for older adults, in Fishers.  Wilson can be reached at wanderw@iquest.net

Are impulse buys killing your retirement? COMMEntaRY By Steve Orr As a registered investment advisor, Steve Orr is used to juggling millions, but he knows those millions started out as pennies.  President and owner of the Orr Financial Group is knows how to turn pennies into millions and juggling finances. “It’s the dollar here, two dollars there things we pick up every day that start to add up, Orr said. We only don’t see the dollars – plus the interest – we could be earning on them.” Orr said pension funds are being wiped out; companies are canceling matching contributions to employee 401(k) programs and decreasing Social Security. Orr who authored the book, The Noisemakers, (www.thenoisemakers.com), said everyday little impulse buys are robbing accounts of pennies today, but millions later. Orr demonstrated how everyday expenses – when eliminated – can turn into big bucks down

the road. The daily cup of specialty coffee is about $3.95. A daily sip of Joe for about 40 weeks out of the year, it would cost you about $27,650 over that 35 years. The formula looks like this: • Coffee or Latte – $3.95 X 5 = $19.75 X 40 = $790 X 35 = $27,650 • Energy shot – $3.99 X 5 = $19.95 X 40 = $798 X 35 = $27,930 • Muffin – $3 X 5 = $15 X 40 = $600 X 35 = $21,000 • Lunch – $8 X 5 = $40 X 40 = $1,600 X 35 = $56,000 “If the total amount of these items were put into a retirement investment vehicle for 35 years with a three percent interest you could have an extra $246, 560 in your retirement plan, Orr said.   Steve Orr is the President and Owner of Orr Financial Group, a full service Registered Investment Advisor located in Victoria, Texas. Steve has been in the financial industry since 1986 and has been independent since 1994.

Don’t put off preparation COMMEntaRY By Susan Jenkins I have worked in the health care industry for 21 years and currently serve as the community relations coordinator and admissions nurse for Riverview Hospital’s Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation program. One thing that I have learned during this time is that more people are in need of better information about health care and preparing to take care of their parents. If you think that you can put this off and figure it out after some life-changing event occurs, think about this: Someone that you love dearly has just experienced a life-altering event. They are terrified and need you there with them for support and encouragement. Now, you have to educate yourself on what their needs will be. Will they need any equipment, or rehabilitation? Who will take care of their bills? Will you choose rehab, assisted living, or nursing facility? Can you get someone to stay with them so they can go home, and where do you find those types of people? How much is that expense? And don’t forget that you still have your own life to manage along with all this. Remember that knowledge is power. At this time in your life, you need as much power as

you can find. I’m here to help. The first thing you need to look at is what type of support system you can put together. Call a meeting of family, friends, church members, neighbors, or anyone else your parents trust. Is there anyone with a medical background or financial expertise? Is there someone that could come in and sit with your loved one to offer supervision and friendly support? Does someone in your group have legal experience that could manage the wills or power of attorney issues? Once you have inventoried your group for skills, make a list so you know where you still need help. This is your support team, and it is so much easier to figure everything out when you are not stressed out so that you can control this situation and not get overwhelmed. This is only the first of many steps in this type of planning. Take this and future articles of mine on this topic as your learning tool and start preparing your family so you can better help your family members whenever they might need you.

exercise interventions improve longevity and quality of life COMMEntaRY By Katie Huffstetler While you’re sweating at the gym to lose those extra five pounds and fit into your “skinny jeans,” you may not realize that your propensity for maintaining a regular exercise schedule as you age is directly related to how independent of a life you could live as an older adult. Research suggests that older adults who exercise regularly live longer, more independent lives and enjoy better long-term brain health than their non-exercising counterparts. The definition of effective exercise changes as people age, and knowing which exercises can help you prevent common problems associated with the aging process helps you get the most value out of your exercise program. C.L.I.M.B. (Confidence, Longevity, Independence, Mobility and Balance), a national wellness program for the aging population, focuses on improving lower-body strength to impact an individual’s capacity to live independently for longer.  The program was recently awarded one of eight national “Best of the Best” awards by the Assisted Living Federation of America for its impact on older adults. Gordon Benfield, director of member services at the Stratford in Carmel, says it is important for older adults to focus on their lower-body strength as they age, since that will also reduce their risk of falling in the future. The Stratford Recently implemented the C.L.I.M.B. program

as part of its wellness offerings. “Simple exercises such as chair stands and step-ups make a big difference in a short period of time,” Benfield said.  “Better yet, you can do these exercises in the comfort of your home while using basic household items such as chairs and canned goods.” Benfield recommends the following exercises for older adults: Work up to three sets of 10 for each, with 30 seconds of rest between each exercise. Step-Ups – Using a step in your house, step up with right foot, up with left foot, down with right foot, down with left foot.  Repeat. Chair Stands – Using a chair in your house, cross your arms over your chest and rise to a standing position from a seated position, then back to a seated position. Repeat. Seated Leg Extensions – From a seated position with your legs bent, extend one leg out until your knee is straight, then bend and place back on the floor.  Do the same with your other leg to complete one set. Repeat. After mastering these exercises, you can carry canned goods in each hand to increase the weight resistance during the step-up and chair stand exercises. For more information about exercises for older adults or to learn more about the wellness offerings at The Stratford, please contact Gordon Benfield at GBenfield@Stratford-Living. com or by phone at 317-733-9560.

Are you at risk for shingles?

Don Burrell (far right) is on the six instructors at Lambert’s Lowery Organ Center.

Seniors learn music, meet friends at Lambert’s By Kevin Kane kevin@youracurrent.com At Lambert’s Lowery Organ Center in Noblesville, an increasing number of local seniors are finding that learning a new instrument at this point in their lives is easier and more enjoyable than they might have imagined. Lambert’s offers hour-long classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays to anyone – regardless of age, skill level or prior experience – who would like to learn to play the organ, or virtual orchestra, as they are commonly called today. But seniors have especially been drawn to the classes’ low cost and friendly environment. Judy Lambert, who owns the store with her husband, said participants pay $20 for six weeks of classes and during that time are provided with an instrument to be kept in their home for practice at no additional charge. The virtual orchestras even include features that allow novices to play complete songs during their first lesson. “It’s the easiest instrument to learn to play,” Lambert said. “And when you take the pressure out of learning, it makes it a lot more enjoyable…If they play the wrong note, who cares? They’re having fun.”

And that fun comes from more than playing music. Lambert said each class is more like a social gathering, with many of the attendees developing friendships along the way. “It’s a great society to be in for the elderly,” said Katheryn Thompson, 94, of Noblesville. Thompson said she joined the class because she “wanted to live again” and has been very happy with that decision. “The friendships that you make here are invaluable.” Sometimes the participants choose to take their class work outside the walls of the music store. Some of the more experienced students choose to play at nursing homes, Riverview Hospital and other places in the community. “They get out there and entertain,” Lambert said. Lambert said she will continue to add more classes in the near future because, not only are more seniors expressing an interest in learning the instrument, but many of the students have remained in the class long past the initial six weeks. “It opens up a whole new world for you,” said Frances King of Noblesville, one of the class’ original students. To learn more, call 773-2002.

If you want to have FUN, learn to play a musical instrument, attend Great Social Events, and Eat Great Food!

COMMEntaRY By Dr. Jugnoo Husain A recent Food and Drug Administration ruling has approved the shingles vaccine, Zostavax, for people aged 50 to 59 years. The vaccine was already approved for ages 60 and above, but a multicenter study showed it was also effective for a younger age group. Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a viral infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which also causes chickenpox. Although varicella-zoster is part of a group of the herpes viruses, it is not the same virus that causes cold sores or genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease. Anyone who’s ever had chickenpox is at risk for developing shingles. After a person has recovered from chickenpox, the virus is never fully cleared from the body. Instead, it lies inactive in certain nerve cells, and can reappear as shingles years later. The cause for this reemergence remains unknown; however, a weakened immune system (e.g., emotional stress, other illness, certain medications, cancer, AIDS) is thought to cause the virus to reactivate and move along nerve fibers to the skin. A person must already have had chickenpox in the past in order to develop shingles. Shingles cannot be transmitted from one

person to another, and contact with someone who has chickenpox will not trigger shingles. However, a person with shingles can pass the virus to anyone who hasn’t had chickenpox (or the chickenpox vaccine); especially if there has been direct contact shingle’s the open sores. In other words, the infected person will develop chickenpox, not shingles. Shingles can be a debilitating condition, characterized by a painful rash that often appears in a band-like distribution on one side of the face or body. Although the rash generally heals within a month, severe pain and extreme sensitivity to touch persist in some cases. This complication, known as post-herpetic neuralgia, may last for several months or even years. Additionally, shingles in or around the eye can lead to vision loss, so this problem requires prompt medical attention. Antiviral medications can help decrease its duration and the risk of complications. Clinical trials have shown Zostavax to reduce the risk of developing shingles by more than half in people over 60, and by 70 percent in those aged 50 to 59. Moreover, those who develop shingles despite the vaccine tend to have milder disease. Millions of Americans have had chickenpox as children meaning they are at risk for shingles; thus, should consult their doctors about getting vaccinated.

get a fall risk assessment COMMEntaRY By Dr. David Sullivan Falls and fall-related injuries are the leading cause of injury deaths among older adults. Fallrelated hip fractures account for approximately 25 percent of injury deaths among those over age 65. Among adults 70 years and older in the United States, falls are the cause of 16 percent of all emergency department visits. Risk factors associated with falls include neuropathy, ankle instability, and weakness along with other specific acute and chronic diseases that can impact sensory and musculoskeletal systems. Other risks include: 1. Gait/ankle instability, weakness, unstable gait, osteoarthritis 2. Taking four or more medications 3. Foot problems or unsafe footwear 4. Blood pressure abnormalities 5. Visual impairments 6. Obstacles and hazards at home Research has shown that treating and correcting these specific risk factors reduces the rate of falling by more than 30 percent. Postural control is a modifiable factor in fall prevention. Postural control can be described as the ability of a person to maintain their center of gravity over their legs, ankles and feet. The ability to main-

tain a stable upright posture is an important factor involving our sensory system, not only in the initiation and the control of voluntary movement, but also in the prevention of injury. Decreased postural control or increased postural sway can occur because of ankle instability and when there is a loss of normal sensation, such as in diabetes and other causes of peripheral neuropathy, then the risk for falls increases. Fortunately, there are many devices that assist the fall-prone with walking. Other than canes and walkers, there is now a new brace, when worn on both lower extremities improves postural control and improves the time it takes these individuals in certain timed tests aimed at evaluating fall risk. Its design allows for the elderly to easily apply and remove it and fit it into shoes without difficulty.  It is custom made and cushioned for comfort, yet provides stability at the ankle joint and increased sensation by the patient which improves balance.  Get your fall risk assessment today.

keeping your loved ones’ houses their homes COMMEntaRY By John Mcnichols According to the National Aging in place Council, “an overwhelming majority of older Americans want to remain in their homes for as long as possible, but lack awareness of home and community-based services that make independent living possible.” The first area of consideration of modifications can increase independence and mobility. While multi-stage ramps are one solution, sloping walkways and raised surfaces are more aesthetic options. Inside, widening doorways, hallways and stairways may become necessary to allow adequate room for moving from one space to another. Perhaps moving the master bedroom to the main would enhance the ease of daily life. Handrails, grab rails and other permanent aides become essential to getting around independently. Stair lifts, chair lifts, and even elevators are now available and more economical for residential use. Kitchens and bathrooms are often two problem areas for the aging population. A little remodeling in these rooms can extend a person’s stay in their home. Installing low steps for rolling into showers with adequate seating and lower toilets can majorly improve independent mobility. Existing kitchens can be improved by providing places for food preparation and storage at a comfortable height. Subtle changes

in lighting and use of color can also help in making living space more pleasant and easier to navigate. Modern monitoring technology help protect loved ones from unattended operation, and alert loved caregivers of emergency or assistance when needed. Video communications with adult children and grandchildren can improve regular connectivity without leaving the residence’s comfort. In addition to home improvements, in-home community based services are making independent living more attainable. Every day new in-home services are being offered including nursing, companion care and doctors who make house calls. Even assistants to help with pet care and daily tasks. Whatever the situation, consider the value of making necessary changes to an existing home to maximize independence and enhance daily lifestyle for years to come.

The intelligence behind Smartlipo

DISPATCHES » Bedside manner affects patients? – Rudeness and incivility among doctors, in particular in the operating room, can actually lead to poorer health outcomes among patients. Doctors from Cedar Sinai and Johns Hopkins University collected data on previous studies of surgeons’ behavior in the operating room and the subsequent outcomes of the patients on whom they performed procedures. They found that when doctors were more courteous to operating room staff, their patients were more likely to survive and avoid complications than the patients of docs who were O.R. boors. -www.time.com » Romance novels bad for women? – Romance novels can be a bad influence on women and lead them to make poor health and relationship decisions, says a British psychologist. “They offer an idealized version of romance, which can make some women feel bad about themselves because their relationships aren’t perfect,” Susan Quilliam wrote in the July issue of the Journal of Family Planning and reproductive health. Quilliam also claims these novels can influence poor health decisions, including having unprotected sex – a scenario often portrayed in the novels. -www.myhealthnewsdaily.com

» Joint myth – Don’t believe the old wives’ tale that cracking your knuckles leads to arthritis. The cracking noise is simply the result of air bubbles popping in the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints. Motion can create these tiny bubbles, which make noise when popped. If other joints, such as your shoulder or knee, make noise when you simply move, and it’s accompanied by pain and/or swelling, it could be arthritis. But you won’t hurt yourself by cracking your knuckles. -Bottom Line Health » Study: No statin, cancer link – People on cholesterol-lowering statins appear to be no more likely to develop cancer than non-users, a new study concludes -- adding to evidence that contradicts a widely publicized report of raised cancer risk from the popular medications. Looking at medical records for nearly 92,000 Americans, the study found that just under 11.4 percent of statin users developed cancer, versus 11.1 percent of non-users. -Reuters

COMMENTARY By Barry Eppley When a product or manufacturer calls itself ‘smart’, there should be a good reason. Such is the case with the plastic surgery method known as Smartlipo. Highly touted as a better and more efficient method of liposuction, its name clearly suggests that it is an improvement over traditional or ‘dumb’ liposuction. Grandiose claims are made all over the internet by several doctors who use the liposuction technique. Smartlipo is a laser technique for melting fat, which makes it easier to extract. By first heating up the fat to a specific temperature, it is turned from a solid into a liquid. This is done by using a laser probe that is passed through the fat area until the right temperature is reached. Then a liposuction cannula is used to vacuum the oily liquid and any other fatty chunks in the area. What makes this form of liposuction so smart? Although it uses a laser, it’s just as invasive and requires a recovery period like traditional liposuction. The laser doesn’t zap the fat, it serves as a way to heat the fat like the burner on a stove. What makes Smartlipo better is its global melting effect, which removes more fat than suction alone. The heat damage increases the amount of fat lost post-sur-

gery. Fat continues to die for days to weeks later; therefore; the procedure’s results don’t take full effect for months. The heating technique accounts for the procedure’s skin tightening capability. Such an effect, however, is almost always overstated and over expected. Do not expect Smartlipo to replace what a tummy tuck or armlift can do. While Smartlipo is often associated with local anesthesia and little recovery, this is often not so. Since there is considerable heat generated during the procedure, local anesthesia may not be enough for a comfortable operative experience. One can only remove enough fat if the patient is comfortable. It is not a test of one’s tolerance. This is why I recommend a general anesthetic. This allows the best result to be obtained in the shortest operative time. Recovery from Smartlipo is not much different than traditional liposuction. Although more fat can be removed, this does not mean there is less recovery. The laser result in less pain and bruising but the amount of swelling is about the same. Dr. Eppley is an Indianapolis board-certified plastic surgeon. Comments can be sent to info@ eppleyplasticsurgery.com

“I offer services like Twitter, Facebook, and blogging to businesses that understand the importance of social media, but don’t have the time to do it themselves.”  Stephanie does her work behind the scenes, making her clients social media superstars.  “I spend a lot of time with my clients and really get to know their business and what they are trying to accomplish, it’s their voice. I just write it and send it out into the social media world.”  Confidentiality is extremely important to Stephanie, she wants her work to be authentic, and seamless for the companies she works with.  “It’s a lot of fun, seeing what my efforts can generate, I enjoy the challenges of being a business owner,” she said. “At the end of the day you have your own success in your hands. I have a very supportive husband that has encouraged and believed in me. My business, it’s a very special thing to me.” So why seppichdaily and not just Stephanie Daily?  “I started my business right after my father passed away, we had a very special relationship, I wanted to honor his last name (Eppich). Besides, it’s a pretty cool name!” So what is next for seppichdaily?  “More clients, expanding, I have a colleague

who is interested in the business, so we’ll see,” Eppich said. “One of my business goals this year is to grant a wish for a child through the Make A Wish Foundation of Indiana.” She said they are working out the details and the social media whiz is encouraging you to to check out her Facebook and Twitter account for the campaign’s launch. “I’ve been a Wish Granter for 10 years, but I think it is important for companies to give back, what better way than to help a child’s wish come true?” Stephanie said her success is partly from the tremendous amount of encouragement from friends and colleagues. When asked who her role model was, Stephanie laughed. “I don’t have one particular person I could name as being my role model. I have been so fortunate to have so many people around me that want me to succeed. My business coach, Deseri Garcia (Vida Adventura ) keeps me focused,” Eppich said. “I could never have imagined this wonderful thing happening to me without the support of so many individuals in Indiana and my family. Isn’t Indy great?”

COMMENTARY By Jenn Kampmeier Chatting with Stephanie Eppich Daily about social media can leave your head spinning slightly. She enthusiastically explained the edge to her company seppichdaily (www.seppichdaily.com) and its pivotal role in the world of Social Media. Eppich was lost following her layoff after 13 years in the insurance business. “I knew I didn’t want to go back into insurance, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do,” Eppich said. “But, I knew I didn’t want to work for anyone else again.”  After holding a couple of different part time jobs, a conversation with a friend changed her life forever.  “It was a few months after my father passed away, I felt lost and defeated. Then Robby Slaughter (Slaughter Development) asked if I ever thought about working in social media for companies,” Eppich said “I laughed, and asked if people actually do that, he suggested we discuss it, Robby’s company was my first client.” Diving right in, Stephanie immediately started making connections, and signing up companies. She has several clients around Indianapolis and one in California, but she can’t tell us who they are because she’s a ghost.

DISPATCHES » Startups hurting the economy? – A new report from the Kauffman Foundation says that startups are opening their doors with fewer employees and, once they get going, are hiring fewer people, regardless of the economic climate. Kauffman says this problem actually began before the recession and continues to be one of the factors dragging down the economy. Startups in the 1990s launched with an average of 7.5 employees; today, that number is 4.9. -www.bnet.com » Cautious approach – Some investors have been adopting a cautious approach. John Toohey, vice president of equity investments at USAA Investment Management, said he’s favoring stocks in so-called defensive

sectors that are less sensitive to economic growth. Throughout the spring, health-care, consumer staples, telecommunications and utilities stocks were among the best performers. “These stocks are better positioned for this sort of slow-growth environment, and we would expect that to continue,” Toohey said. He added that many companies in these sectors are still attractively valued and have room to expand their profit margins by being more productive. -www.wsj.com » Pay bills with gift cards – ChargeSmart. com, which is partnered with the gift card site PlasticJungle.com, is gearing up to launch a new feature allowing customers to apply gift card balances, up to 92 percent of the value, toward bills, such as utilities. -www.dailyfinance.com

Crash and learn

COMMENTARY By David Cain When I was 16, I drove a truck into our house. My dad was eating a bowl of chili at the kitchen table and I put the grill of a truck through the wall within a few feet of his bowl. I remember the look he offered as I peeked through the broken wall; it was the look of defiance. Unwavering in the face of childhood mischief, he glared at the problem with no fear. It was a stick shift truck – four on the floor as they called them. I was in the garage jumpstarting the truck, a trait that has mostly become a lost art. It was connected to a battery charger and I was rapidly trying to make the truck start; so, I could be off to something important – as only could be defined by a teenager. I reached in the cab of the truck and turned the key. I never imagined a stick shift in first gear could lunge forward when it turned over; however, in hindsight it seems obvious. The truck jumped forward with a reckless force that could make a kid yell, “Hell yeah!” if his father wasn’t on the other side of the wall. This wasn’t my first experience crashing a car

in front of my dad. Before I had my license, he’d go for a walk and let me drive back and forth in the driveway. One snow covered winter, I drove his car too far up a trail, just as I felt it sliding, it tilted over a hill and wedged against a tree. I climbed through the window to escape the terror and a chance of it toppling with me behind the wheel. The one fear I did not have was my dad’s reaction. I knew he’d understand. After all, he’d given me the keys. Was there anything to learn about these car wrecks? Although these two events happened nearly 30 years ago, they still cross my mind more than I’d think. I recall the understanding of making those mistakes. I remember the latitude my dad gave me to explore and I respond to that kind of trust. I pass it along, I trust people, I let them explore and I try not to judge when they make a mistake. After all, it’s only a car.

Living life in the great outdoors COMMENTARY By Larry Greene ORIGINAL DECK/PATIO: This home, located in The Woods at Williams Creek neighborhood on the west side of Carmel, was built about eight years ago. The home sits facing a landscaped pond yet only had the original small elevated deck without a patio. The goal of the project was to create an environment where the homeowners could enjoy the outdoors more. DESIGN CHANGES: The project architect reviewed several potential designs with the homeowner. The goal was to create a seamless outdoor living space which connected the main level of the home, the elevated deck and the ground level patio sitting area. ELEVATED DECK CHANGES: The foot print of the existing deck was expanded and new 5/4x6 cedar decking was installed with concealed fasteners. The existing railing was replaced with 2x6 cedar handrail and black aluminum Vienna Belly balusters. New 6” x 6” decorative newel posts in a Victorian profile were installed with ball tops on corner newels only. New 10” diameter by 96” tall tapered smooth round columns were installed to support the deck. The column bases were faced with painted brick to match the existing home and topped with decorative cast stone caps. Finally, the cedar trim and deck railing was painted to match the existing house trim color and the new cedar decking was stained with a semi-transparent oil-based stain. UNDER DECKING: The homeowner wanted to enjoy the patio space under the elevated deck without worrying about rainwater dripping down; so, we installed a Dry space under-deck drainage system. Also, adding an associated gutter and downspout system above the covered patio space. The drainage system was covered with

August 5th Historical Night painted exterior grade bead board plywood. A new ceiling fan/light was centered above the covered patio space. NEW PATIO SITTING AREA: The project includes a new curved concrete paver patio including a path connecting the deck to the main patio area. The pavers were installed in a staggered herringbone pattern. Finally, the patio area was finished off with a new collection of outdoor wicker patio furniture.

DISPATCHES » Dry hair upside down – To build volume when you blow dry, work a palmful of mousse from your roots through to the ends, then flip your head over and dry your hair away from the scalp. Hair should be barely damp before you flip it back up and style it. -www.today.msnbc.com » Painless waxing? – Dr. Edna Ma, an anesthesiologist in Santa Monica, California, claims to have created a product that’s easy to use and eliminates the discomfort associated with hair removal by numbing the area beforehand. Her creation, BareEase & Cream is a kit featuring a Lidocaine-based cream infused with aloe and jojoba, to soothe and moisturize skin. Wear the cream underneath the enclosed latex underwear for 30 to 45 minutes to safeguard the cream from air and allow for maximum absorption.  Once the cream is removed, you’ll be numb for about 15 to 20 minutes, so you’ll need a quick and efficient aesthetician.

Home styles for the seasons Commentary By Sue Faulstich Each April and October, thousands of new home furnishing products are introduced to regular attendees at the furniture market in High Point, North Carolina. As our design business continues to receive custom furniture ordered for clients, it made me think this would be a great opportunity to give my readers some insight into the happenings of a furniture market. The largest and most well known furniture market to date, the High Point Market, is a collection of over 180 buildings, which make up over 10 million square feet of show space. Interior designers and retail buyers from all over the world are able to get the first look at new home furnishing products from more than 2000 exhibitors. For the interior designer, this is an opportunity to touch and try out many pieces of furniture we will later see pictured in manufacturer’s catalog updates. Most furniture manufacturers will have new introductions available in their showrooms during market for designers to sit in and get a feel for scale and comfort.  This is to my advantage when I present a project to a client through a series of photographs. No matter how well a piece of furniture is photographed, it will still be up to me to assure a client this is the proper piece for their project. I will be able to describe a detail such as a piece of antique mirror in the door of an armoire as more smoky silver than hazy grey. Designers must have the

ability to convey to a client what exactly they are purchasing in a piece of furniture. Even the details which are more technical are addressed and studied during market week.  Custom upholstery manufacturers want buyers to be attracted to the look of their brand, and have a clear understanding of their product’s quality. It will have several cushion options available to demonstrate the difference between such components as spring down and blend down cushion construction. Custom case goods manufacturers will have several pieces of furniture on display which showcase the new paint and stain finishes available for the new introductions. You would be surprised by how many shades of espresso actually exist. Having the opportunity to see these details in person will help me help a client visualize a completed project. Since the early 1900’s the High Point Market has been a steadily growing, biannual gathering of design industry professionals. Like many conventions, stories are swapped, sales are made and an occasional cocktail is enjoyed.  This formula, which has endured through two World Wars and a Great Depression, is what keeps the people coming back season after season.

Look Good Working Out

We all know that the best accessory for good style is the body underneath the clothes. With hectic schedules and limited time, it’s hard to always get to the gym. One great way to stay motivated is to dress the part. We don’t recommend spending more time getting ready than you actually spend working out, but here are a few quick ways to workout hard and look good doing it. Function Workout clothes should always be about function. They are meant to keep you dry, covered, and supported through high intensity sweat sessions. Our pick for best workout tops? Lululemon’s Scoop Neck Tank. Secure Going on a long run just to realize ten minutes in that your hair is flying around can lend itself to all sorts of excuses. Secure your hair back and keep it smooth with a strong hold hair spray. Here are some of the sprays we suggest: Brocato Maximum Hold Hair Spray Aquage Freezing Spray Salon 01 Commit Hair Spray

Tuck your top into the shorts to show off your waist while simultaneously knocking-out onlookers with your fabulous legs. We like black since the high waist is bold enough on its own without having to add a belt.

Hubble, humility, and man

Spirituality By Bob Walters Dramatic deep-space images from the Hubble satellite telescope have inspired worldwide awe the past couple of decades. On TV, in magazines and clogging our inbound email, we’ve seen the luminous light of exploding quasars and collapsing galaxies, thanks to Hubble’s above-earthly vantage point and mindboggling technology. The pictures are phenomenal: scientists marvel, artists are humbled and poets are left speechless. Atheists proclaim man’s insignificance. Believers see God’s magnificence. Some people just sit back and say, “Wow!” A recent network evening newscast noting the end of NASA’s space shuttle program aired a sidebar on the oft-repaired Hubble’s history, trials and triumphs. The reporter’s parting words grabbed my attention. Voicing over surreal intergalactic photography, he intoned (approximately), “Hubble’s images have made mankind think differently about how he views himself.” I just sat back and said, “Wow.” Here was a brilliantly crafted, politically correct, non-committal statement carefully and perfectly framing a truth with no conclusion. It didn’t cast light without heat, making a brick with no straw, and balancing a platitude squarely on a secular fence. The reporter left the sharp arrow in the quiver, the logical follow-up question: “Different … how?” That ponderance was left dangling with the audience. One could muse, simply, “Look

what man found!” For sure, many said, “Behold, the face of God!” The interview leading into that final statement was a scientist marveling at our “13-billion-year-old universe” – which I interpreted as an enthusiastic and institutional bon mot for Evolution and a purpose-pitch at the chin of Creationism. It seemed the reporter intended us viewers to gain further appreciation for our personal smallness against the big, meaningless, postmodern emptiness of everything else. In other words, “Those Hubble images sure put mankind in his rightful, small place.” I think not. In the Hubble images I see unequivocal, gigantic proof of a great God, and the shimmering, show-stopping, unimpeachable truth that God not only exists, but He builds utterly amazing stuff. I see overwhelming evidence of a God Whose glory I cannot adequately express. “What is mankind that you are mindful of him?” David asks God in Psalm 8:4. The Hubble images aren’t an adequate picture of God, because God is bigger than that. But in those images we see something the creation of which God considered worthwhile for His glory. And to think, He created us, too.

Stay home. Be moved.

Bob Walters (www.believerbob. blogspot.com, email rlwcom@aol. com) notes that the Bible gives us a more instructive view of God than any telescope. Psalm 8. Yeah.

Debunking some common pet frets

DISPATCHES

Truth: Dogs are not obligate carnivores and they sometimes enjoy a few blades of grass. Yes, grass can make dogs vomit. However, they generally don’t eat it because they are sick. Myth: My cat needs milk. Truth: Cats do not need milk. Yes, they may like to drink milk, but it can cause diarrhea. Myth: My dog has a fever because its nose is warm. Truth: A dog’s nose is influenced by activity and climate. A healthy dog can have a cold, wet nose or a warm dry, dry nose. If your dog’s nose is warm but it acts fine, it’s likely all is well. “So many pet parents hear health rumors or read things on the Internet that aren’t true. It’s important to work closely with your veterinarian to ensure you receive correct answers to your pet health questions,” Benson said.

PETS By John Mikesell Owners often assume the worst about their pets’ health, but they can find reassurance when they consult reliable sources. People love their four-legged friends, fretting over their health and wellness like any nervous parent over a child. Fido didn’t sleep well last night? He might have a gluten allergy. Fluffy’s meow sounds a bit off? It could be rabies. No one wants to diminish the concern people feel for their pets- but even the most compassionate veterinarian might have a chuckle at some owners’ outlandish conclusions. “When it comes to your pet’s health there’s no such thing as a stupid question, but be sure to seek out answers from a reliable source,” said Dr. Jules Benson , vice president of veterinary services for Petplan (Philadelphia). Here are a few of the most common pet health myths heard by Petplan veterinary staff members. Myth: If my dog is eating grass, it must be sick.

» Don’t skimp on pet food – Spending more up front saves money in the long-run: Cheaper brands have possibly harmful preservatives, such as BHT, and fillers, like corn, that may cause allergies. These can cause skin reactions and may require a vet visit and a prescription diet. The first two ingredients on the label should be animal proteins, not by-products, grains, or vegetables. The cost can run to $1 a pound, versus 50 cents a pound for lesser-quality food, but you’ll save in the end. -www.cbsnews.com » Home flea remedies – If you don’t want to use a flea collar with insecticides, active ingredients such as eucalyptus, cedar, lemongrass, rosemary and marigold won’t exterminate, but will deter fleas. Also, feed your pet a combination of brewer’s yeast and garlic once a day during flea season. The mixture will make your pet taste bad to fleas when they bite, while also conditioning your pet’s skin. -www.almanac.com
