Ricker’s likely to get go-ahead

By Karen Kennedy •

The next step in the process for the proposed Ricker’s gas station and convenience store at 146th Street and River Road Development will take place today, Aug. 6, in the Carmel Plan Commission’s special studies committee meeting at 6 p.m. Ricker Realty and Development, LLC, will be seeking a zoning waiver (to allow the building to be set back more than 15 feet from the street) and site plan and design approval for building and canopy elevations, signage, landscaping and the lighting photometric plan. As the plan progresses, however, questions about the safety of the location in terms of its proximity to a Wellhead Protection Area continue to be raised by various county and city agencies, as well as public utilities. Under the docket number 13050012 on Laser Fiche, the City of Carmel’s searchable public records database, letters of opposition to this proposed location (dated June 13 through July 15) are on file from the following agencies: Citizen’s Energy Group, Hamilton County Emergency Management Agency, City of Noblesville, Citizens Water Technical Advisory Group, Hamilton County Drainage Board, Town of Fishers, Hamilton County Surveyor’s Office, Indiana American Water, City of Westfield and the Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources. This letter-writing campaign, however, is coming too late and is directed at the wrong parties. The letters are addressed to council members as well as the Carmel Plan Commission, the Carmel Dept. of Community Services and the mayor’s office. None of those parties has a say in how the land is used. All the letters have a common theme – that the proposed gas station will sit within a Wellhead Protection Area and that the quality of the soil at the proposed location is very porous, creating the potential for spilled fuels to leach into the underlying aquifer. The letters are too late because both state and federal legislation have, as far back as 1999, already established the regulations under which such uses are permitted in Wellhead Protection Areas, and because, on a city-government level, the land was already zoned for uses that included a gas station in a planned unit development in 2007. In other words, it

would be against the law for the city council or any other body to intervene, as long as Ricker’s is abiding by state, federal and local regulations. When the PUD was written in 2007, the existence of the aquifers was known, but the wells were not yet drilled, according to council President Rick Sharp. “They (the utilities) created their own problem by drilling in a place that they knew was zoned for commercial use,” Sharp said. City Councilman Ron Carter, who served on the planning committee that created the PUD, disagrees. “I think we made a mistake. We knew it was a well field, and we missed the connection between the possibility of a gas station so close to a water source,” he said. Regardless, given the fact that the legislation governing the issue is already in place, even if concerned parties mounted a campaign on a federal, state or local level to prevent gas stations from being built in or near wellhead protection areas, the Ricker’s station would be grandfathered under the current legislation. “The idea that fuel run-off from an unattended pump could end up in the water supply is not plausible,” said attorney Joseph Scimia of Faegre Baker Daniels, who represents Ricker’s. “The area will obviously be paved. Any fuel that lands on the pavement will go to a storm water run-off, which leads to a treatment system, which leads to a holding area with a 10,000-gallon capacity.” When presented with that information, Dan Considine, spokesperson for Citizen’s Energy Group (which owns several of the wells in the area) simply said, “We disagree.” When asked for a response to Sharp’s statement that the wells were drilled after the PUD was completed, Considine said, “I can’t comment on when the wells were drilled. I don’t know all the details of the zoning. I can only say that we perceive a threat to the water supply and we oppose this.” “The time for debating use of this land has passed,” said council member Kevin “Woody” Rider, who also serves on the Special Studies Committee of the Carmel Plan Commission. “We will discuss safety, but we cannot discuss use, because the question of use is not before us. We have to trust our city utilities managers, and our city utilities managers believe this is safe.”

Forest Dale Elementary School was recently home to the Carmel Fire Dept.’s very first Firefighter for a day camp for diversions children ages 7 to 13. With six different stations, both fun and educational, children were able to take part in the multiple activities to make them feel as if they themselves were a firefighter during the two-day event July 23 and 24. Some of the department’s own children even attended the camp, including Chief Matt Hoffman’s son and Chief of Finance and Adminstration David Habouch’s daughter. The Carmel firefighters led the camp with the help of Liberty Mutual workers. Chick-Fil-A and McAllisters Deli provided lunch for the children both days.

To make the children feel as if they were firefighter, the real firefighters of Carmel came up with six different activities for the children to partake in: fun relay races, washing a fire truck, saving a baby doll from a kiddie pool, learning the importance of smoke detectors in a safety house, and learning how to call 911 in an emergency. “There are stations for having fun and stations for learning,” Keith Freer, the department’s public education officer, said. Earlier this summer, the fire department advertised Firefighter for a Day through posters and flyers at CarmelFest. However, most parents found out about the camp by word of mouth. With almost 250 children attending the first camp, the fire department plans on making the event an annual one and also hopes to expand the number of children involved next year.

Clay Middle and Woodbrook Elementary schools are mourning the sudden loss of instructional assistant Tonya tragedy Weindorf. On July 27, Weindorf was a passenger in a Colonial Hills Baptist Church bus on a return trip from Prudenville Mich.’s CoBeAc church camp. One mile short of the church, witnesses say the bus overturned in the median as it exited I-465 toward southbound Keystone Avenue. Weindorf, who was a mother of five and wife to Charles Weindorf, was the mother of two Clay Middle School students and a daughter, Emily, who graduated from Carmel High School in May. CMS and Woodbrook staff offered grief counseling in the Clay Middle School Large Group Instruction Room July 31 from 5 to 7 p.m. Parents are encouraged to contact the counseling department at 844-7251 for additional resources on coping with loss. Church deacon Jeff Leffew told the Associated Press, “Tonya was at camp because she has a special-needs child who wanted to go, and she wanted to go and make it a good week, and according to her husband, it was a great week, and that’s who Tonya was.” Weindorf’s son was one of dozens of teens hospitalized with injuries after the accident, but

he since has been released. The accident also claimed the lives of the pastor’s son, youth pastor Chad Phelps and his eight-month pregnant wife, Courtney. The Phelps, two-year-old son, Chase, survived. The Associated Press reported Dennis Maurer, the 68-year-old church member and bus driver, told Indianapolis police the brakes on the bus failed. An investigation is under way. Weindorf’s daughter Gretta, a Maranatha Bible College student, shared on Facebook, “I appreciate the incredible support my family has received through the prayers, words, gifts, and love shown to us by our relatives, friends, church, neighbors, and the community.” The church will distribute donated funds on behalf of the accident victims and their families. Contact Leffew at or visit the church website at www.colonialindy. org. (See Obituary on Page 7.)

Divorce – What To Expect: College Expenses In Indiana in any Dissolution of Marriage, Post-Dissolution or Paternity action, the Court may enter a post-secondary educational expense order requiring that the parties, and/or the child(ren) be responsible for a determined portion of the child’s college expenses. In determining what is a reasonable educational expense order, the Court may consider the following factors: the child's aptitude and ability; the child's reasonable ability to contribute to educational expenses through: (i) work; (ii) obtaining loans; and (iii) obtaining other sources of financial aid reasonably available to the child and each parent; and the ability of each parent to meet these expenses. It is important to note that the child must petition for the Court to allocate these expenses. Often, this request is filed by one of the parties at or near the time the child will enter college. Typically, at the time when the parties separate, the child is young and the issue of payment of college expenses will be reserved until a later time as circumstances can change. If the request is not made in a timely fashion, however, the Court may find it waived and neither party ordered to contribute. Who pays these costs? In any matter where a court orders college expenses to be paid, the parties and the child at issue may be required to contribute to the payment of college expenses. Absent agreement, the Court will define what share each party and the child will pay as well as which expenses will be paid. It is not uncommon that the child’s share is comprised of or includes any scholarship, loans, or grants obtained. Further, it is common that any existing 529s at the time of the divorce are applied as the child’s portion of the college expenses. Courts vary on how the expenses are divided given that each family law case is so contextual; however, equal division between each parent and the child is not uncommon. Obviously, the capacity of each person to pay their portion will be considered.

What cost does this include? This is an issue of much current debate; the definition of “college expenses” is not established by statute, leaving the Court (or the parties in an agreement) to determine what this encompasses. Defining these is essential in any agreement or request that the Court do the same. A simple answer is whatever appears on the Bursar’s statement from the school, but the ancillary costs must be considered to ensure they are not excluded, leaving the child short against these costs unintentionally. It is also typical that the contributions be limited to four years, at a state-supported institution, and certain academic and full-time enrollment elements are met. At times, paying for automobile expenses and/or an allowance for the child is appropriate, but the argument can be made that these are not “necessary” reside with one parent while he or she is attending college, the parent housing the child may ask for “credit” for room and board, however, under current caselaw, he or she must show the actual expenses incurred to house the child to receive such credit. What if I can no longer afford to pay for college? Similar to child support, the educational expense order can be modified or terminated based upon a change of circumstance, for instance if a party loses his or her job, that could be a basis upon which to petition the Court to modify the college expense order. Further, the courts are to consider the financial resources of a party, so it is possible that one party not be obligated to pay toward any college expenses depending on the circumstances.

A memorial to a citizen

Commentary by Luci Snyder

Last week, an event took place at Brookshire Golf Course that I thought represented the best of Carmel. It was neither a new Honor project nor a new company, although they are both appreciated, but rather a gathering to honor one of us by friends, family and colleagues. Norman L. Rundle served two terms on Carmel City Council. He was solid and considered in his judgments and someone we all used as a sounding board. Additionally, Norm loved golf. He bought his home in Brookshire so that he and his wife, Lois, could play. On occasion, he might even admit that she was the better player. When he died, the city council considered flowers but soon realized that the most fitting tribute would be a bench, installed at the golf course he loved, donated by the people who knew him best. A purely private gift installed in a very public place. Why? For those who have not lived in Brookshire long or who love golf and play the courses in Carmel, there came a time several years ago when the council realized, to its horror, that every park and golf course in the city retained its underlying residential zoning. Which meant that if a golf course was failing, all the owners had to do was sell to a home developer. Golf course gone, no zoning approval required. Homeowners who had paid more for their lot

on the course or to be part of a golf community would lose that investment. Norm spearheaded an ordinance that rezoned parks and golf courses to a protected PARK zoning and the council approved it unanimously. So, if you play at Brookshire and see a wellplaced bench near the clubhouse, beautifully landscaped with a bronze plaque to Norm Rundle… husband-father- grandfather, sit down and enjoy the view that he helped protect for us all.

I would like to address the recent article called “Take another shot.” I have lived in true downtown crime Carmel since 1980 and have raised two wonderful children that went through the whole Carmel school system. I consider myself to be the average Joe next door kind of guy. Up until the last election, I never thought about getting a license to carry handgun permit in Indiana. Never even touched a gun! With my job, I travel around the whole state. With the recent violence in the Indianapolis area and the political climate the way it is, I firmly agree with the second amendment and my right to bear arms to protect myself and my family. While I believe Mayor Jim Brainard has done many wonderful things improving the standard of living in Carmel, I disagree with his current view on the proposed state-of-the-art Pointe Blank gun range business coming into Carmel. I’d like to know when the “heart of Carmel” became the 900 block of north Range Line Road? Besides the Dairy Queen and a few other businesses, there is also a hazardous waste facility and a cemetery. It’s not anywhere close to downtown Carmel or the high school! I am also sure the owner of the Dairy Queen has no clue how many people, armed like I usually am, have walked into their restaurant to spend their hard-earned money in their business.

If they don’t want “those kind of people” in their restaurant spending their money, I’m sure “those kind of people” would be happy to spend their cash in another business right around the corner from them! When I started the process of getting my LTCH right after last year’s election, I was told I had to meet with the Carmel Police Chief. He was so busy with LTCH permits that they finally told me to just go in and pay my fee and they would send the paperwork to the Indiana State Police for my verification process. With all these people getting permits don’t you think it would be great to have a local place to go and take lessons on how to use a handgun? After I received my LTCH permit, I took a 16hour safety hand gun course in Lebanon from Sheriff Ken Campbell. I consider it the most important thing I could do after getting my handgun. It was so informative, I plan on taking more lessons. I would gladly spend my money here in Carmel if such a facility were here. I’d also like to point out that this is a legitimate business with a state of the art facility, and they are not asking for one single dime from the tax payers. It’s refreshing to know they WANT to come to Carmel and provide a much needed service locally. I have seen the plans and it will look much nicer than any other business in that area, including the DQ that recently rebuilt! This will be a very well-built facility that architecturally matches Clay Terrace.

Cathedral announces capital campaign

ROOF MOLD? Cathedral High School has announced the launch of the public phase of its new Faith in the Future capital campaign fundraiser which will provide funds to keep Cathedral on the leading edge of academic excellence and technological innovation plus provide for additional tuition assistance and enhancement of facilities for arts and athletics. The public phase of the campaign was launched in front of more than 400 Cathedral alumni at the school’s first-ever Grand Reunion Weekend June 22 at Cathedral’s 40-acre campus. “This campaign has already been incredibly successful. To date, more than $7 million has been contributed by alumni, community leaders, faculty and staff and friends of Cathedral,” said Cathedral President Stephen J. Helmichm who introduced the initiative. “We are also proud to recognize the most recent gift to the campaign from Indiana University Health and Methodist Sports Medicine, which continues and extends our sports medicine partnership with the organization.” Part of the school’s unique mission is to offer its top-level academics to any deserving student, regardless of ability to pay. “About 40 percent of our students receive some sort of tuition assistance or academic scholarship award,” R. Duane Emery, vice president for enrollment management, said.

To make sure these opportunities will be available for coming generations, the Faith in the Future campaign will raise $1.5 million for endowed chairs and named academic programs and provide $1 million in competitive compensation and professional development for teachers. Three million will be raised to prefund current tuition needs and create a tuition-assistance endowment for the future. The Forever Fund will raise $1.75 million for new technologies as they become available. In addition, funds will be available to meet current technology requirements.

Maybe you don’t like to brag, but if you have one of those wide-striped bowling shirts with Lucky’s Grill emPhilanthropy blazoned on the back and your first name embroidered on the front; we need to talk. If you carry a disco-colored opaque bowling ball complete with a multi-compartment zippered bag, I know that means you take the knock-em-down set-em-back-up game seriously. We really must talk. But wait. You don’t need any of that fancy stuff to come on out and support Meals On Wheels of Hamilton County for its 13th annual Strike Out Hunger Bowl-A-Thon. The event is designed to benefit seniors who cannot pay for a daily hot meal. They are looking for six more teams to push the fundraising goal over the top and attain its goal of $22,000. Join me for a fun Sunday afternoon helping raise money for this worthy cause. Michael Rothenberger is a board member for Wheels and is focused on doing everything he can to make sure the event is successful. He said, “This is going to be a great event. Everyone always has a great time, and I know this year will meet every expectation.” On Aug. 18 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at Coopers Stardust Bowl in Noblesville at 845 Westfield Rd., bowlers will not just compete for bragging

rights, but there will be lots of raffle and door prizes given away. To enter a team for just $250, go to Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that provides meal delivery to elderly, disabled and homebound residents, regardless of age or income. Their primary goal is to help clients live independently for as long as possible. What began as a community service project that delivered one meal to one person is now serving more than 180 clients each month on 17 routes. Volunteers compassionately deliver more than 55,000 meals each year to clients in all eight communities of Hamilton County. Nutritious meals are delivered on a short or long-term basis five days a week. Although 60 percent of the people receiving meals in Hamilton County can contribute something toward this valuable service, there are 40 percent who cannot. In addition, volunteers like Rothenberger know there are more people who need the service. Rothenberger said, “We are always trying to expand our capabilities in order to fill the need to serve more people.” Grab your bowling shoes and help him.

F R O M  T H E BACKSHOP Sadness in wake of 465 bus crash

Morally straight It is our position that religious institutions are within their right to disaffiliate themselves with programs they deem to be in conflict with their beliefs. Recently, several churches made the decision to cut ties with the Boy Scouts of America due to BSA’s decision to open their membership to youth who are openly gay. With the largest majority of BSA’s sponsors being religiously affiliated organizations, the decision has spawned mixed emotions. Conversely, for each troop that has been dropped, other organizations have picked up the sponsorship with open-minded churches among those on the list and even backing the decision. A ban on gay scout leaders is still in effect. Placing sexual orientation in the spotlight of Boy Scouts of America has left many parents with the dilemma of answering tough and often times age inappropriate questions explaining inclusion or exclusion in the organization. Sexual activity is prohibited as part of the boy scout promise of being “morally straight” so why should one’s sexuality matter? Willingness to participate by developing character, citizenship and personal fitness alone should be criteria for earning the good person of earth badge. Earning a badge in political correctness should not be the priority.

Learning from parlor games Commentary by Terry Anker A friend prone to preparing well-planned questions to inspire conversation during her dinner parties routinely demands that each person around the table turn, identify something positive and interesting about the person seated next to them and say it aloud – which leads to both hilarity and self-consciousness, especially among those meeting for the first time. Even more, like a junior Barbara Walters, she poses interrogatories in a way that requires us to imagine the familiar from a different perspective. Once, she asked of the famed three ghosts from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” which apparition best reflects each of our own personalities and why. We expected questions about Scrooge and Marley, perhaps even about the beleaguered Bob Cratchit himself, but as simple as it seems, to become a decent ghost requires thoughtful introspection in addition to a robust knowledge of literature. Most of those gathered showed a nostalgic streak in choosing Christmas Past, alive with the smells and sounds of a lost time, but the

vigorous and hearty nature of Christmas Present, even while holding close the simmering difficulties of ignorance and want only temporarily in abeyance, appealed most to me. At our table, only one imagined the gloom and doom prognosticated by Christmas Future with his bony finger pointing the way toward the eternal choice between salvation and damnation. Like most of us, we can easily say that we have found ourselves playing the role of each of these familiar figures at some point during our lifetimes. Yet undoubtedly, one matches us better than the others. For me, it remains Christmas Present. The duality presented by abundance and poverty – by joy and sorrow – continues to flummox even the most intentional of human beings. Past, Present or Future, these ghosts are here to show us the way if only we dare to follow. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK You have to be willing to get happy about nothing

- Andy Warhol

Late on the evening of July 27, one of us rolled back into town, exiting I-465 onto northbound Keystone Parkway. We noticed a grisly scene. It was a bus on its side on top of a concrete divider on the opposite exit ramp. Later we learned of three fatalities, among them Tonya Weindorf, 51, a Carmel Clay Schools instructional assistant. She leaves behind five children and her husband, Charles. CCS appropriately has provided grief counseling and still is making it available by calling 844.7251. That her death was the result of an apparent accident does nothing to mitigate our sadness for her family, those she knew and those she served in the schools. Colonial Hills Baptist Church is accepting donations to help Weindorf’s family and the families of two others who were killed in the incident. Whatever you are able to give, it will count.

Good job, Jeff Worrell



17083 Huntley Place, Westfield, IN (169th & Springmill Road) 317-797-3804 | 317-431-1659 |

Editor, My husband and I want to acknowledge and recognize Jeff Worrell and all of the many, many volunteers that make CarmelFest a very successful event each year. It involves more work and planning than any of us could ever imagine. Jeff is always there, at every venue, selling the Spark buttons and promoting CarmelFest and, all of Carmel. He is an awesome person, has the best personality, tons of energy and has

to devote thousands of hours to everything he gets involved in. If we could clone Jeff and his “helpers,” Carmel would definitely be voted “Better than the No. 1 City to Live In.” We are both from the East Coast, and have loved living here since 2003. Thank you, so very much, to Jeff and all of the volunteers, and to other businesses and city departments and officials that make Carmel a great place to live. Bev and Frank Bertoni 46032

What’s in the water? Editor, Could you please investigate what the City of Carmel has done to the water supply it’s providing this summer? I know last summer it suspended the use of it’s softening ingredients due to the long hot dry spell (even though Carmel has no water shortage at all due to the natural aquifers we reside over), but this summer hasn’t been even close to the dryness of 2012. The water already has destroyed my ice

maker and severely contaminated my coffee maker’s reservoir, not to mention the dishes/ glasses that come out of our dishwasher necessitate a hand washing/drying never necessary before. Will we be getting a rebate for the lack of quality delivered this year? I would believe most all of your readership concurs and would like an answer. Christopher D. Kelly 46033

Editor, America is being degraded so frequently by its leaders that the events seem to be a continuous stream. Now, you have contributed to our degradation by publicizing the reprehensible behavior of a former New York State elected official. Your cartoon isn’t funny, it’s rather a comment on how poor a job the guardians of our society are doing. You have the ear of much of the public. For instance, the children on page 10 of the same issue. Did you intend to corrupt their minds with thoughts of the behavior of Anthony Weiner? Do you really want them to lightly consider the dereliction of Mr. Weiner?

I’ll leave you with a thought of John Adams: “It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity, faculty, and virtue. If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives.” John Adams, Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, 1756 I hope you consider your next cartoon with broader regard for the responsibility you shoulder as part of the fourth estate.

Mooning the Islanders

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Have you ever sat down on a public toilet only to discover a gi-normous hole in your pants just below your back pocket? Me humor neither, until recently at Kings Island. Hmmm . . . how long had I been hoofing it through the park with my left cheek hanging out? Classy. No matter. After all, it’s memories I was after. The controversial ripped shorts incident (we never determined how or when said tear occurred) was fairly par for the course. Our day of supposed fun began with a 30-minute late arrival, thanks to the troopers on I-74 chaperoning an oversized truck for 10 excruciating miles during rush hour traffic. That’s what midnight to 3 a.m. is for, people! This delay meant I’d had to ignore my desperate need to urinate upon entering the park in favor of helping our youngest obtain her long-awaited orange wristband, signifying she was finally tall enough to ride the big daddies. Did my husband and two boys kindly wait for us? Heck to the no. They sprinted for the Diamondback coaster without even a glance in our direction. No sunscreen application, no safety review on meeting at the Eiffel Tower if you lose your buddy, and no distribution of the four cell phones among the three groups. Suffice it to say, I was livid and in extreme discomfort a mere 10 minutes into our annual thrill-seeking

adventure. I didn’t discover my “the hole” for another five hours, after being drenched on the white water rafting ride, so it was quite possible I had indeed bared my bum to a couple thousand Midwesterners in tanks and tats. Luckily, I had an extra pair of shorts and was able to spare these poor adrenaline junkies additional trauma. What really made this a most precious experience was that I’d been up all night with our lovely dog. So even though I knew to avoid rides with the word “spin,” “whirl,” or “delirium,” subjecting my body to the continuous unnatural G-forces of the coasters increased the sleepdeprived nausea I was feeling, despite copious amounts of Advil and Pepto. Of course, it could have been the bungee dealio I rode with Doo; I’m not sure how I kept my breakfast down after being launched 100 feet into the air while strapped inside a metal cage. Or maybe it was the heat. Below-average temps for most of the summer, but the Monday we pick, it’s 95 (degrees and percent humidity) in the shade. Ah well. My best memories are from when life doesn’t go as planned, holey pants included. Peace out.

Just a little more time

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Healthy, hip and homegrown.

Buy Local. Eat local!


He hadn’t eaten anything in two days. (With a beagle, you should worry about loss of appetite after two hours.) He was clearhumor ly in distress. Breathing heavily. Hadn’t budged in hours. I took him to the emergency veterinary clinic where they initially diagnosed it as a treatable infection, but Toby was not getting better. They did an ultrasound. The doctor came into the waiting room with the results. “Can I take him home now?” I asked the doctor. “If you really want to,” she said, explaining that the tumors they found on his liver were probably life threatening, and they might soon become painful. He was too old for any aggressive treatment. “I do want to take him home,” I said without hesitation. “I want some time with him to say good-bye.” I looked into his eyes; the sparkle was gone. I hoped that taking him back to the house was the right decision. Barney, who passed away 10 years ago this week, had accompanied me on 2,500 TV shows for WISH-TV. Rather than become my next TV sidekick, Toby became nothing more than my next best friend. And nothing was more important than that. I’ve had a hound by my side for 23 years. The transition from beagle to beagle was seamless. The two dogs looked alike, they acted

alike, they drove my wife crazy alike. When we got home from the vet, Toby curled up on his bed next to the TV. He didn’t move for 12 hours. No interest in water or food. I spent most of the next afternoon lying next to him, stroking his ears. When my wife got home, I remember saying, “I know this dog; he is dying.” Mary Ellen took issue with my prognosis. “I think he’s going to be fine,” she said, an observation that I took to be directed more at assuaging my anxiety than a legitimate medical assessment. Over the next few days, Toby began wandering around the house, soon barking to go outside to sit in the afternoon sun. His tail started wagging and by the end of the week, he had tipped over all the wastebaskets in the house and snatched a loaf of bread from the kitchen counter. I was ready to kick his butt. I wanted my wife to wipe that self-satisfied look off her face. This was three months ago. I could have easily made a different decision that night at the clinic, never knowing if I made the right one. This experience offers no life lessons. There is no moral here. It’s just a story, but so far, a story with a happy ending.

Walking the halls

New Carmel Clay Schools wellness program steps forward By Nina Johnson • At July’s school board meeting, the Carmel Clay Employee Wellness Center and partners from St.Vincent Health presented a detailed proposal for a three-year Pedometer health Program through Virgin Health, Inc. “Our members burned more than 20 billion calories in 2012,” boasts Virgin Health Miles’ website, “or 25.856 million burgers.” Roger McMichael, the schools’ assistant supt. of business affairs, expressed support for the program and emphasized it “will more than pay for itself by having a positive effect on medical claims expenses.” McMichael explained federal stimulus funds would pay for the estimated annual $62,510 cost. “These funds can only be applied to healthcare initiatives,” he said. He acknowledged the program could be “a tremendous morale booster” despite the district’s “struggling to keep up with inflation in terms of compensation and benefits.” “The expected return on investment for the program after the three-year (trial) is up to five times the cost of the program,” he said. “Plus, our people will be healthier.” St.Vincent Health Wellness Coordinator Stephanie Collins described an “innovative and interactive program” offering employees the opportunity to track their activity level with small, lightweight pedometers. She displayed a user-friendly website where colorful graphics provide exercise tips, personalized challenges and a visual overview of an employee’s “Health Miles Journey.” “This particular program has found 50 percent of participants escalated their activity level from sedentary to active lifestyles,” Collins said. Virgin Health confirms, “Fourteen percent of members reduced their level of body fat from high to healthy.”

Collins emphasized the measurable health gains of pedometer programs. “Increasing levels of physical activity,” she said, “decreases stress and anxiety, decreases cholesterol, blood pressure and body weight, and decreases risk of heart disease and diabetes.” Becky Cheatum, Wellness Committee Chairperson and Creekside science teacher, reminded members that a past pedometer program “didn’t work well because the big, chunky pedometers fell off too easily.” She shared the committee’s three-year efforts surveying district teachers and nurses about their wellness needs. “It was apparent that everyone wanted a better step program,” Cheatum said. “This new program’s pedometer is smaller and lightweight.” Employees who choose to participate would pay $5 per month for the pedometer, online goal tracking and inclusion in all incentive programs. School-to-school competitions and peer challenges could earn schools a traveling plaque. Proposed individual incentives include a free personal training or massage therapy session or $25 gift cards. “With points to earn, milestones to hit, and cash to earn, our programs have all the makings of a good game… of health,” states Virgin Health Miles webpage. Board member Greg Philips, also a business analyst with the National FFA Organization, offered some quick calculations indicating the program could outlast a three-year trial. “This program will almost certainly net a profitable gain,” he said. “My calculations show that, to break even, we’d only need to see a reduction of one-sixteenth of a tenth of the cost of the program.” Dr. Michael Busk, St.Vincent System Executive of the Health, Wellness and Preventative Care Institute, pointed out the program includes Purdue University Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering analysis. Dr. Busk explained the Center “applies engineering, management and science methods to conduct systems research to improve healthcare delivery.” “In three years,” he assured the board, “we will know definitively whether the program is working.”

Teachers will be given the opportunity to track their steps. (File photo)

He emphasized the program’s power to improve employee health. “Walking works,” Busk said. “It’s my number-one pill. It’s all based on science.” He confirmed walking programs result in a “60-percent drop in diabetes and 40-percent drop in heart disease” for participants compared to the general public. Busk encouraged the Board’s support and recommended everyone interested in improved health watch the nine-minute online film 23-1/2 hours: What is the best thing we can do for our health? by Dr. Mike Evans. “Dr. Evans illustrates how walking improves quality of life,” Busk said. “Evidence shows that one-half hour a day of physical activity is one of the greatest preventative measures.” School board discussions about the proposal should result in a vote late August.

New principal has strong belief in community When the students of Carmel’s Prairie Trace Elementary School return to the classroom on Aug. 14, they will be greeted by a new principal. Jill Smith, a veteran educator and long-time resident of Carmel, will be on hand to meet both the students and the dawning of a new school year. With that dawning comes not only new faces, but new challenges as well. Smith, however, is confident in what she feels is the biggest asset of the school: the strength of the community. “This is what I looked for in a community,” Smith said, during a sit-down conversation at

advocate,” she said. “Our teachers here are extremely dedicated, and that’s what we want parents to know. We are here when the child is successful, and we are here when the child needs assistance. We work as a team, and figure out things together. That comes with knowing you have those strong relationships.” When asked about her vision for the school, Smith is thoughtful. “My vision for the school,” she concluded, with an enthusiastic smile, “is to keep building and to keep enriching that sense of community. My vision is to take that to the next level.”

Student wellness is the core focus of the new state-of-the-art fitness center at Carmel High School. Despite the school’s fitness record-setting 114 IHSAA state championship titles, wellness academic curriculum drove the design over extra-curricular athletic programs. “Early feedback is kids just love the new weight room,” said Kim TenBrink, Carmel High School Physical Education Dept. chair and Carmel Clay Schools wellness coach. “The criteria for designing the fitness center were very fitnessbased with an emphasis on lifetime fitness and ultimately, what’s best for the kids.” According to CHS Athletic Director, Jim Inskeep, the idea to add a fitness center to Carmel High School started nearly a decade ago in 2004. “The changing curriculum in physical education and growth of elective wellness programs created space constraints throughout the gymnasium and auxiliary areas of the building. Athletic teams also needed more space as numbers continue to grow (950 student athletes in the early 2000’s versus 1250 in 2012-2013). The scope of training for student-athletes has changed dramatically since the last major addition and renovation to the main portion of the building in the 1990s.”

The two-story fitness center features an expansive weight room with new equipment to fit the changing needs of student-athletes. Inskeep said the weight room more than doubles the old space which was the comparative size of most Class 1A and 2A schools in the state. The size of the new weight room is comparable to facilities at other larger schools like Warren Central, Ben Davis and Noblesville. A new cardio fitness room will be furnished with a variety of state-of-the-art interactive computer-operated equipment to help students stay actively involved with the workouts. The second floor of the fitness center houses a new auxiliary gym featuring two full-sized basketball/volleyball wood courts and an elevated, soft-surface running track. The scarcity of land on the high school campus meant it was an important opportunity to incorporate usable space with this particular construction project. The fitness center will be used by wellness classes during the school day and athletic teams before and after school, including intramurals. The Carmel Swim Club has access to the fitness center through a partnership with the high school. Staff members also are encouraged to use the facilities. Finishing touches to the fitness center are progressing in anticipation of student arrivals on Aug. 14.

Creating successful schools

Commentary by State Sen. Luke Kenley

In the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly approved many initiatives to encourage growth and development legislation in Hoosier schools. One of these laws takes that goal a step further by focusing on administrators and their impact on a school’s success. When you consider the various roles a principal plays, it’s no surprise that an effective one can make a major difference in a school’s ability to reach its students. A recent study by Harvard- and Stanford-based education journal Education Next found that an effective principal can improve student performance by the equivalent of two to seven extra months of schooling. If an administrator is significantly ineffective, however, he or she can negatively influence student achievement by a similar amount. This trend is especially important in high-poverty and low-performing schools where an effective principal can have the impact of an additional seven months of learning. But, when our school principals do not have the proper tools to become better leaders, they often aren’t aware of ways they can improve. And if a school district doesn’t have the means to get these resources, administrators are sometimes unable to find them on their own. To solve this problem, our legislature passed a new law that established the Indiana Principal

Leadership Institute through Indiana State University’s Bayh College of Education. At the Institute, participants learn from a wide-ranging curriculum that focuses on many features of school leadership. This includes developing personal goals, improving building-level dynamics and using action research. Additionally, the program facilitates support networks of mentoring administrators and participating principals, which will extend beyond the Institute itself. The Institute’s first class will accept 50 principals. Participants will be required to attend five seminars each year of the two-year program, and school corporations must contribute a onetime $1,000 fee to solidify the commitment of the principal and superintendent. School districts may nominate a principal if the superintendent and school board believe he or she has the potential to improve their school, are supportive of positive change in the school and will allow data collection to occur. It’s my belief that this program will better prepare principals to lead, which can only create higher performing schools. That means better results for our students, teachers, parents and the community as a whole. I look forward to seeing how the Indiana Principal Leadership Institute’s first class performs and the positive impact of their efforts. To learn more about the program and apply, visit

Interruptions didn’t impact score

In response to widespread problems associated with CTB McGraw-Hill’s administration of the high-stakes ISTEP+ this ISTEP+ spring, Indiana Supt. of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz hired Dr. Richard Hill of the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment to review the results. Among other things, the report shows the following: • Because of the efforts of Ritz

teachers, administrators, students and parents, as well as the swift and decisive actions taken by Ritz, the average negative statewide impact on scores was not measurable. However, this does not mitigate the effect the interruptions had on students, parents and teachers throughout Indiana. • At this time, the exact impact of interruptions at the individual, classroom and teacher level cannot be ascertained. “First, I want to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of Indiana students, parents, teachers, administrators and the employees of the Dept. of Education,” said Ritz, a Carmel resident. “Because of their dedication and hard work, the impact of these interruptions was limited. However, let me be clear, the problems with the ISTEP+ contractor were absolutely unacceptable. Every student deserves the opportunity to take a fair and uninterrupted assessment.” According to the report, Westfield Washington, Carmel Clay, Hamilton Southeastern and Zionsville Community schools students had 5 to 15 percent of its students experience computer interruptions during ISTEP testing in Spring 2013. Noblesville Schools reported 0 to 5 percent of its students were interrupted while taking the tests. “Although Dr. Hill’s report found that the statewide average score was not affected by the interruptions, there is no doubt that thousands of Hoosier students were affected,” Ritz said. “Because of this, I have given local schools the flexibility they need to minimize the effect these tests have on various matters, such as teacher evaluation and compensation. I have also instructed CTB McGraw-Hill to conduct enhanced stress and load testing to ensure that their servers are fully prepared for next year’s test and ensure that this never happens again.” The DOE is conducting an ongoing negotiation regarding settlement with CTB McGraw-Hill. Next steps for the department include processing student reports to be available online to parents and students, and calculating A-F accountability results.

Ensure a successful year By Dr. Raymond J. and Eileen Huntington

As the most important “coaches” in our children’s race to achieve, there are three key steps we can take to prepare them for the journey ahead. Create a learning space tips Studying is hard work, even more so amid the myriad distractions of television, technology and other factors that may get your child off-track. Establishing a quiet, neat, well-lit space for studying will help your child focus on homework and significantly enhance their ability to retain material. The seating area should be moderately comfortable — with a straight-backed chair that will keep your child relaxed but alert as opposed to soft upholstery, which can encourage drowsiness. Establish a learning schedule Setting aside a designated period after school or in the early evening that is to be used only for schoolwork is a strategy that has been proven effective for countless students throughout the years. There are several factors that can influence the decision about which time is best. One of the most important relates to your child’s rising and falling energy levels. Some children, for example, may complete homework more successfully by beginning immediately after school, leaving the rest of the late afternoon and evening for other activities. Others may need time to “wind down” after being in school all day before they’re relaxed and focused enough to complete homework successfully. Another factor is your child’s schedule of extracurricular and athletic activities. Set the stage for effective parent-teacher communication Begin by either going to the school to introduce yourself, or calling or writing a note. Speak forthrightly about your child’s particular strengths and interests and areas in which he or she may need extra help. Make sure the teacher knows how to get in touch with you. Communication will be much easier if the teacher knows your name, has your phone number and e-mail address, and is aware of the best time to reach you during the day and evening.

Guiding freshmen toward success Commentary by Dr. Raymond J. Huntington

If your teen is about to begin high school, you may be concerned about the transition. High school, after all, brings higher advice academic expectations and is a significant time of change for most students as they grow into young adults. As a parent, how can you help your teen survive and thrive his or her first year of high school? Here are several tips: Get to know the support staff Establishing good advocacy relationships at the outset of high school will be important during the next four years. Encourage your teen to stop into the guidance counselor’s office early on. If he or she feels a connection with a teacher, seek that teacher’s advice and help. Your support will certainly be important throughout high school, but your teen should establish a team of individuals to whom he or she can turn throughout the high school years. Don’t wait for help High school isn’t easy for everyone - be sure your teen understands the long-term consequences of falling behind and poor grades, and knows that he or she can and should ask for help. While high school teachers expect students to be more independent, don’t let your teen wrongly assume he or she shouldn’t seek assistance during tough times. He or she should visit the teacher outside of class and get outside

tutoring help if needed. Let your teen know you are there to help when they feel overwhelmed by a difficult subject or issue. Get organized If your teen isn’t a naturally organized person, now is the time to improve those organizational skills. Help your teen set up a reliable system of keeping track of papers that come home. If they have a desk, teach them to keep it tidy and consistently put things in their proper place so that homework time is productive, not frazzled. Make sure your teen establishes a study routine and sticks to it. Work on time management Perhaps your teen has grown used to you helping manage his or her time, giving frequent reminders about outside commitments, homework and project due dates. Let your teen take the reins now. Teach him or her to make use of a planner or calendar to stay on top of homework assignments, upcoming tests and other obligations - and plan ahead properly. Guide him or her on this early in high school, but let him or her take responsibility quickly.

Filmmaker wants to tell good stories

By Mark Johnson •

Kate Chaplin is the real deal. During an interview, the topics run the gamut of what Chaplin refers to as geek silver screen culture: movies, sci-fi, cult TV shows, comic books. . .oh yeah, and filmmaking! However, what makes Chaplin the genuine article is her passion for telling good stories. That passion is summed up in Chaplin’s latest feature film, “Ingenue,” a science fiction story that touches on themes of humanity and, what Chaplin calls the “strength of family.” So, what was the impetus for Chaplin’s passion as a filmmaker? “I got interested in film when I was 10 years old,” she said, with a combination of humor and humility. “I was watching a marathon of Charlie Chaplin films on TV. There’s a part in the movie, ‘The Gold Rush’ where Charlie Chaplin eats his shoe! I knew he hadn’t really eaten his shoe, but I thought, ‘How did they do that?’ I wanted to know how they made it look so real!” Chaplin’s interest in film, preceded the rise of the internet and the age of instant information. “I did the only thing I could do at the time,” she said. “I went to the library and checked out some books. I’m a big fan of books. I learned more about filmmaking from books than any other medium. That’s where I learned how Charlie Chaplin ate his shoe. It was made of licorice!”

One of those days? Help is just around the corner.

Yet, there was also another television marathon that caught Chaplin’s attention: “The Twilight Zone.” “I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi,” she said. “I love ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Star Trek.’ What amazed me about the ‘Twilight Zone’ as I watched one the marathons was just how story-driven each episode was. Those stories were the inspiration for ‘Ingenue.’ That’s what I wanted to achieve, a solid story that would be a throwback to the old ‘Twilight Zone’ episodes.” When the conversation turns to the state of the filmmaking industry today, Chaplin believes

that independent films should lead the way. However, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy a good popcorn flick. “I think there needs to be that balance,” she said. “You have the movies when you just turn off your brain and enjoy it, then you have the movies when you say, ‘I want to think about what I just saw.’ A steady diet of just one of those is not healthy!” Chaplin endeavors to contribute to that balance through Karmic Courage Productions, the company which she owns and co-manages with Amy Pauszek. Does Chaplin have any advice for aspiring filmmakers? “Yes,” she said, enthusiastically. “I tell them to make a movie! There are so many resources at their disposal. That’s what is so cool! You can make movies on an iPhone now! I tell them to use all the resources they have, involve all the people they know. The more movies you make the more you learn.” As for Chaplin, her mission remains constant. “When people leave my movies, I want them to say ‘That was a good story!’ That is always my main goal.” For more information on Kate Chaplin, her films and her production company, visit www. Kate Chaplin’s first feature film, “Ingenue,” will screen at this year’s Gen-Con at 8 p.m. on Aug. 17 at the Westin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis.

Have you stopped dancing?

Commentary by Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D.

Do you have aching, painful or restless legs, heaviness, swollen ankles or muscle cramping? Have you stopped envein health joying dancing or other physical activities because of leg pain? If so, you may have varicose veins. More than half of all women and about 45 percent of men will suffer from varicose vein disease in their lifetime. A family history and aging increase one’s tendency to develop varicose veins. Other factors include a sedentary lifestyle, weight gain, prolonged standing and pregnancy. Phlebology is the specialized field of venous medicine, recognized by the American Medical Association, which deals with varicose vein disease and related conditions. Vein disorders are not always visible to the naked eye so the first step is to have an examination and diagnostic ultrasound to determine the cause and severity of your vein problems. The treatments to eliminate varicose veins and all vein abnormalities have improved dramatically in recent years. No longer do most patients need to endure painful surgical vein stripping. State-of-the-art corrective treatments include endovenous laser treatment, sclerotherapy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy. With these procedures, there is minimal downtime and no sedation so patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately.

EVLT eliminates the abnormal saphenous vein, which is the source of most varicose vein issues. Using ultrasound technology, a thin laser fiber is guided into the vein through a very small opening to deliver energy to the diseased vein wall, causing the vein to close and eliminating backward blood flow. Sclerotherapy is a treatment in which a tiny needle is used to inject veins with a medication that irritates the inner lining of the vein and causes it to close. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy uses ultrasound technology to locate the veins below the surface of the skin while the medication is injected. This procedure is often used in addition to EVLT. Microphlebectomy is a method of removal of varicose veins at the surface of the skin. Small micro-incisions are made next to the vein and sections of the vein are removed through these tiny nicks. This is performed in the doctor’s office using a local anesthetic. Results are immediate. There is no way to completely prevent varicose veins, but if you’d like to keep dancing, watch your weight, exercise regularly, eat a diet high in fiber and low in salt and wear compression stockings.

Yoga and Pilates studio coming

By Karen Kennedy •

Kite Realty has announced that a new yoga and Pilates studio will open in mid-September in the 4,053-squaredevelopment foot space above Panera Bread in the Range Line Crossing Shopping Center.

process of building out the space. Perez-Hayden discovered yoga in 2004 and became certified as an instructor in 2007. She later discovered Pilates and enjoys how the two complement each other. “Yoga, to me, is like the fountain of youth,” said Perez-Hayden in a phone interview. “And yoga combined with Pilates is like wine and cheese; they are very different, but perfect together.” Her husband Matt is an organic hog farmer specializing in Heritage breed hogs. Once the studio is up and running, he plans to turn his focus there.

Vendors include The Pauper’s Castle – all natural, water based, environmentally friendly paint; Barbeaux Formulair – allergy and gluten free body products; JBAM Candles – the sales of which benefit various charities; and AMOR Photography – featuring photos from around the world – all taken by Royse. “I was an educator in my previous life, and they are from tours I chaperoned. I love to travel and have been to more than 30 countries,” she said. Reaction has been positive. “Business has been great. I’d say we averaged 15 to 30 customers a day the first three weeks we were open and Royse probably 12 to 20 a day now,” Royse said. “People say they enjoy the mix of items, that the prices are reasonable, and I’ve had several tell me it’s their new favorite place. I’ve had a lot of repeat customers.”

At first glance you might mistake the charming house as someone’s home, but venture inside and you’ll soon now open find yourself enthralled with everything from refurbished furniture to pictures taken across the globe. Vintage Shoppes of Carmel opened June 17 and is the realized dream of owner Amy Royse who features some of her own work in the shop. “It started out just as a hobby – I had a small booth space at the antique mall in Greenfield, but I shop up here and spend most of my time here so it made more sense and was a better fit for what I was doing,” Royse said. “I do a lot of remodeling, I have my real estate license, and I flip houses so I was looking for an old home to buy and fix up for a store but there weren’t any at the time.” Knowing she wanted to be in the Arts & Design District, Royse stumbled across the house at 301 S. Range Line Rd. “I liked the feel of walking to the shops and restaurants and the Monon and it just felt like the right fit for me and the vendors,” she said.

Stay Home. Be Moved.

In other words, stop trying to be perfect. Your growth depends on the pain associated with failure. The key to your success is figuring the best way to deal with your errors. I have some simple strategies that will help you out. First (and this is the hardest), embrace the blunder and take 100 percent responsibility for whatever took place. Don’t even think about blaming someone else. Next, document the most important two to three lessons you learned. It’s not enough to recognize and discuss them with someone else. You need to write them down. Finally, forget about it. Once you’ve documented your lesson learned, there is absolutely ZERO value in dwelling on the error. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Every month, my firm hosts a workshop in Fishers that is attended by between 75 and 125 professionals. A few weeks move the needle before the July event, our sign-ups were down about 75 percent. We assumed that everyone was on vacation and decided to cancel the event. The morning of the canceled event, I began to receive messages from people who showed up to the facility wondering, “Why is no one here? Did you cancel the event?” Apparently, plenty of people had signed up, we just had a glitch in our system. Yikes! I felt absolutely terrible. We quickly went into damage control and held an impromptu meeting to figure out what happened and ensure that we fixed the issue. I hate mistakes. They are embarrassing, cost money and can damage your brand. But, they are absolutely necessary. In fact, I typically find that the more successful you are, the more mistakes you have made.

Setup or set up?

Commentary by Jordan Fischer

Question: “Jordan: Keep up the good work with your grammar column. If I don’t read anything else in Current, grammar guy I read your article. Comment on “setup” vs “set up.” I believe I know the difference, and I see it used (what I think is) incorrectly many times.” (Peter Fruehman) Answer: Thanks for writing in, Peter. The theme for the column lately seems to be noun versus verb forms, and this question fits right into that. “Setup,” as you probably know, is a noun. It has a lot of wordy definitions, the best being “the manner in which the elements or components of a machine, apparatus or system are arranged, designed or assembled.” More simply, “setup” is how things are put together: “The setup for prom looks great.” If you’re a fan of noir or mobster documentaries, you know that “setup” can also mean something done “by deceit or trickery in Enviro-fashion – Consumers have the opportunity to buy clothing that is made out of recycled materials. Environmental expert Christopher Gavigan recommends looking into, among others, a company called Loomstate. Recycled plastic makes up a large chunk of each of its T-shirts (50 percent), according to Esquire. – www.

order to compromise or frame someone.” In certain circumstances (computers come to mind) “setup” can also be used as an adjective: “Run the setup program.” “I lost my setup disk.” “Set up,” on the other hand, is a verb through and through. It means to “establish, cause, lay plans for or place in an upright position.” You can set up a lawn chair. You can set up your child with a college fund. Eating breakfast can set you up for a successful day. Etc. If “setup” is the way things are put together, “set up” is actually doing the putting together. “Set up,” like “setup,” can also mean “to put someone else into a compromising situation by deceit or trickery.” It’s simply the verb form. One last note: “Set-up” is not a word. So don’t use it. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at

“Heavy stubble” bubble – It sounds like men that have “heavy stubble” have one up on the rest of the guys who are walking around clean shaven, according to a study in a journal called Evolution and Human Behavior. The study says women think men with that style of facial hair are the most attractive, while other styles are at an even playing level. –

Commentary by Don Knebel

Visit our website: 317.844.0005 27 East Main St., Carmel, IN 46032

Bosra, an ancient city in southern Syria, contains the world’s first minaret, a basalt structure inspired by a Christian bell Travel tower. A monk from Bosra may also have been the inspiration for the religious views of Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Egyptian records from 1400 B.C. refer to Bosra, which eventually came under the control of the Nabateans, the people of Petra. The Romans, who captured the city in the second century, made Bosra the capital of their Arabia province and built a still functioning 15,000 seat theater. Lying along the Roman road from Damascus to the Red Sea, Bosra later became a major Christian city, with a large sixth century cathedral attesting to its importance. In 580 A.D., Muhammad, then about 10 years old, reportedly stopped in Bosra with his uncle, a Meccan caravan driver. While there, Muhammad met with a monk named Bahira, who taught him about Christianity from the Nestorian (or perhaps Arian) perspective. Nestorian and Arian Christians rejected the belief that Jesus had been born divine and that Mary was the “Mother of God,” arguing that the notion of God producing

offspring through a human mother had unmistakably pagan origins. As a result, they were considered heretics by orthodox Christians living further west. According to Islamic tradition, Bahira told the young Muhammad he was destined to correct the mistaken views of orthodox Christianity about the nature of Jesus. The Quran, which Muhammad said came to him from an angel, says, speaking of God, “Far be it from His glory to have a son.” So similar is this and comparable statements to the claims of Nestorians and Arians that some scholars believe the Quran builds on the tenets of non-orthodox Syrian Christianity Bahira taught Muhammad in Bosra, noting that Syrian Christians both then and now refer to God as “Allah.” Today, Bosra is a city of about 20,000 people, some living among the ancient ruins. Loud speakers atop the seventh century minaret still call the faithful to prayer. And most visitors leave unaware that the roots of Islam may lie in this once Christian city and its unorthodox monk.

Decorating layer by layer

Commentary by Vicky Earley

I have heard designers say that every beautiful room needs to start with a rug. I have read advice in decorating magazines stating Interiors that a palette is the beginning. I disagree with both schools of thought. I believe that the first item that the foundation should be is the one that sets the mood, evokes the strongest emotion, and says the most about the room. The first layer is a textile that takes your breath away. It is far easier to plan a color around a beloved fabric than to search through acres and acres of fabric books for a textile that will work with an arbitrary color. More often than not, that incredibly beautiful fabric that has stolen your heart will come packaged with a breathtaking price tag. Fear not. Remember that is just one fabulous fabric and when mixed judiciously with moderately priced fabrics, it elevates all the players in the room. When it comes to mixing, most homeowners are quite comfortable with pairing a pattern with a solid. Beyond that, the thought of adding more strikes the heart of design cowardice, and that is where an average room and an amazing room part ways. . This inspiration fabric should have at least three colors which can be blended with two or more additional fabrics. Vary the fabrics with contrast, texture, scale, sheen, and pattern. Leave your fear behind and experiment with different fabric samples until you find a combination that feels comfortable with the balance of color, scale and pattern. Once identified, move ahead bravely with a plan of where they will be used. Spread the fabrics around the room to create balance. For example, if you use your

The second fabric could be used as a duvet cover and for window shades and to upholster one chair. Your third fabric might be a luxurious solid linen that can be used to trim the window treatments, make shams or throw pillows for the bed and to cover a bench at the foot of the bed and the second chair.  Don’t forget that your walls and floor coverings are additional areas for color, pattern and scale. Consider those elements, as well as the style and scale of your furniture, when planning your perfectly layered room. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in Carmel.

FASHION POLICE We uncovered the 5 fashion rules you should NEVER break, according to InStyle magazine. 1. Never show visible panty lines (VPL). This is inexcusable! Opt for seamless underwear or a thong, and make sure your pants aren’t too snug. 2. Just because its trendy doesn’t mean you should wear it. Not everyone should wear every trend. Pick and choose what is best for your personality and body type.

SALON 01: THE ONE SALON FOR MEN & WOMEN Salon 01 is committed to excellence. We strive to exceed expectations with every service and every product for each guest every day. We believe in introducing you to many other team members in the salon, hoping that you will feel comfortable visiting any stylist or any technician based on appointment times that are most convenient for you.

3. Don’t bare your midriff unless you’re at the beach. Make sure your shirts aren’t too small so your midsection remains covered.

Salon 01 offers French Hair Cutting. We use this method because we believe that this system gives softer, more feminine layers that are complimentary to the face shape of the guest.

4. Never buy shoes that don’t fit. Suffering in the name of fashion is never a good idea! If they don’t fit in the store, chances are you will be miserable trying to wear them for an extended period of time.

WHAT’S YOUR CONDITION? As summer is winding down, and kids are about to head back school, have you considered how your hair fared over the summer? If you’re like us, your hair may have been damaged from too much sun, chlorine or saltwater. Here are some tips on how to turn things around for this fall:

5. Don’t pay attention to sizes. There are no international guidelines for sizing. No one can see the size that appears on the tag, so don’t stress! Depending on the store or brand you may have a range of numbers that appear in your closet.

1. Ask your stylist about in-salon hair conditioning treatments. Professional conditioning treatments can virtually reverse the ravages of summer-induced damage. Your stylist can recommend a regular regimen over the next several weeks to almost completely restore the integrity of your hair.

Find Us on Facebook

S a l o n

You will notice the difference of this technique from the beginning of the service. Salon 01 is an education based salon. We encourage our staff to share their educational experiences with you, and we encourage you to ask questions about what is happening at Salon 01 because there is always something new. We love the opportunity to educate our guests on our techniques, our products, the services we offer and our community involvement. Check out our website for additional information about Salon 01 at!

2. Get a good, healthy trim. It is time to start thinking about your new fall hair style anyway. While you are at it, get some of the damaged ends cut off. Your hair will again feel healthy and vibrant with just a nice trim. 3. Start using a leave in conditioner on a daily basis. Get in the habit now to help promote healthy, hydrated hair all year long! Remember, when all that fun in the sun starts to take its toll, it is important to take care of your tresses, after all it is the most important accessory you own! A stylist at Salon 01 would be happy to recommend an in-salon and take home conditioner that is right for you!

Existing kitchen: Built in 2006, this Westfield home in the LincolnBlueprint for shire improvement addition was just beginning to feel a bit dated to its homeowners. With a plan to relocate within the next few years, resale value was a major consideration in the design process. The goal was to bring the space into current times while keeping costs in line with the potential selling price. The focus for this project thus involved cosmetic changes only, working The outdated kitchen needed to be modernized without a large financial investment.
