Carmel couple finds secret to happiness in sailing away. By Christine Bavender Current in Carmel
Take a 38-foot sailboat, add a newly married couple and what do you get? How about an adventure that has spanned three years and numerous countries. For 33-year-old Amy Larson, of Carmel, and her 41year-old husband, Tom, what started as a honeymoon trip of sorts a month after their wedding has turned into nonstop fun on the high seas. “We didn’t intend to go as far as we have,” Amy said with a laugh. “Originally we just wanted to get down to Mexico and take a break. Tom is retired from the military (Coast Guard) so we just sold everything – our house and cars and furniture – and took off.” But once the couple got to Mexico, things changed. “I said, ‘Hey, look, let’s just keep going,’” Amy said. “So we made a right and crossed the Pacific.” It was something Tom didn’t think he’d have a shot at convincing his wife to do. “I’m not sure how I pulled that off,” he said. “Like she said, we didn’t plan to go this far – maybe the Caribbean – but we just headed out from Mexico. We had the biggest jump across the Pacific. The first landfall was 28 days non-stop away, roughly 3,800 miles, so it was a pretty big commitment.” One that meant no turning back. With the wind behind the Sandpiper, a 1976 Yorktown sloop, once the Larsons set sail from Mexico there was only one way to go. And what a trip it has been. Through the years, the couple, who spend time out at sea playing Scrabble, watching dolphins and sharks and snorkeling, has visited such places as Yemen, Egypt, the Sudan, Indonesia and the Maldives. Their families have been nothing but supportive. “I think they knew before we did that we would be out a lot longer than we said we would,” Amy said. “They know us both, they know we are all about traveling and they knew we were together and would be fine.” Now home in Carmel for the first time in three years, Amy said it has hit the family that the sailing couple has been gone for quite some time. And they realize the Larsons could be under sail for months to come.
TRACK THE SANDPIPER If you would like to track the Larsons’ journeys, visit their blog at http://www.sandpiper38. blogspot.com “We are kind of putting ourselves in check as far as what we want to do,” Amy explained. “The boat is in Turkey right now and we think we might stay there an extra year, maybe try and get work. This has been a good break for us. The past three years have just been about moving, moving, moving continuously.” “This, truthfully, has been the first time we have stopped this long,” Tom said. “On the boat there are only certain seasons we can travel and the last time we stopped for a bit was Australia, and we haven’t stopped very long since.” If the couple opts not to stay in Turkey and continues on home, it will be at least another year before they make landfall on the East Coast. “There are only certain routes you can take around the world and only certain months you can go because of the winds,” Tom said. “If we cross the Atlantic we know we have to be in the Straights of Gibraltar around December to make the jump across the Atlantic.” But whether they stay put or continue their adventure, the Larsons know it will be smooth sailing ahead – as long as they have each other.

OUR TAKES It is our position that corn-based ethanol fuel production has become the popular, but wrongly-identified scapegoat to blame for increasing food prices. It is difficult to miss television newscasts lamenting the impending need to choose whether or not to feed people or fuel SUV’s. The growing demand is partly responsible for the swelling cost of food for both humans and for the animals that ultimately end up becoming food for humans – corn, like the kind used for fuel production, soybeans and animal protein are each part of the chain. At its root, alternative energy demand is increasing directly because of the record high price of crude oil. With many oil pro-

Summer vacation keeps shrinking
ducing nations (Iran, Russia, Venezuela) not particularly supportive allies of the USA and with international demand increasing at a startling rate (China, India), home-grown and bio-friendly ethanol becomes an attractive alternative. There are other forces at work. The weak U.S. dollar makes American agricultural products seem less expensive to those buyers outside the United States. Hence their appetite grows and demand increases. Similarly, rapid economic growth in developing countries has made them hungrier to buy more food, particularly more animal protein. Stopping biofuel innovation is not the solution.
It is our position that August 12 is too early for kids to be back in school. Once unthinkable to begin school before Labor Day, the year has crept ever longer with July now the only “summer” month. Where are the lazy days of summer vacation without alarm clocks, stern bed times or school buses? Is the concept of the “summer job” about as relevant as an 8-track tape? The Indiana State Board of Education mandates that every school conduct 180 student instructional days (some of these “days” are only a couple of hours long) for all students from kindergarten through 12th-grade. Should a
school district fail to meet this minimum standard, a financial penalty is imposed upon the school corporation as well as failure to meet the legal standard for school accreditation. At the same time, the minimum hours per instructional day in grades 1-6 is only five hours, while for children in grades 7-12 the minimum is six hours. Schools across America are crying for increased funding to cover fuel costs. An eight-hour day would effectively shorten the school year by more than three months. Isn’t time to reconsider the logic of 180 all-too short school days?

FROM THE BACKSHOP road rage hits home We were overcome with excitement about the resurfacing of East Main Street in the Arts & Design District ... until one of our, uh, corporate vehicle’s undercarriage took a severe blow. The pavement had been milled to the point where the road bed sections were of distinctly different elevations. There were no warning signs, no steel plates for a smooth transition. Just a bump that rendered “Current1” useless. (And, no it’s not a GM vehicle.) Something cracked, the rear wheels became squirrelly and the vehicle became unsafe to drive. Potentially, it could have been worse. Now, before you go accusing us of motoring too fast for conditions, this incident occurred in the usual heavy Carmel traffic. Look, we’re all for expediency in road repairs, but next time the city undertakes a project like this, some signage would be most helpful. If it’s not in the budget, maybe one of the mayoral portraits being done for City Hall gets dropped for however long it takes in order to afford the signs. Next time, maybe we should forward the bill to the city and its contractor. Meantime, our friends at Joe’s Auto Service will have the other half of our
Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg corporate fleet back in service quickly. ••• Sometimes we pile on. We can’t help it (shaddup!), but this really irked us. So, Elizabeth Edwards, we’re terribly sorry. We hope your dignity is regained. Soon. The guy’s a bum. You deserve far better. Here’s to your improved health, emotionally and physically. ••• (Insert whistle and hand-clap here.) That sound you just heard was the former youthful governor of the Great Hoosier Nation, Evan Bayh, being summoned for another lapdog audition with ... as Ann Coulter calls him ... B. Hussein Obama. We’ll be stunned (again, shaddup!) if anyone else gets to be Obama’s “trusted companion” heading into the November election.

(It’s also been known to make grown men cry, including my husband.) So though Disney has something for everyone, our family would be divided in half most of the time with one group hitting the thrill rides at Epcot and MGM and the other half frolicking with Snow White in Magic Kingdom. That’s another plus of starting out small at King’s Island: you can split up for an hour to do your own thing and then reconvene at the pizza parlor in Rivertown for a family ride on the log flume. Navigating the Disney parks requires GPS and a monorail. To summarize, if you aren’t sure you and the kids are ready for amusement park Mecca, then try King’s Island. You can see how your kids fare in long lines, high humidity and haunted houses at a closer, less expensive venue before investing the time and money into a Walt Disney World extravaganza. Peace out!

Estridge offers no payments on new homes until 2010 By Bryan Unruh Current in Carmel
No payments until 2010. That is what Carmel and Westfield builder Estridge is offering on its new homes. Buyers who close by the end of October are eligible for the program, which will cover all property taxes, mortgage payments, homeowners insurance fees and electric and gas bills through January 1, 2010. The catch? â€œThere isnâ€™t one,â€? said Michelle Cannava, director of inventory homes. â€œThatâ€™s the beauty of it. The rates arenâ€™t jacked up. There is no pre-payment penalty. Weâ€™re just making your payments for you.â€? David Martin, vice president of F.C. Tuckerâ€™s residential division, said the promotion raises some concerns because buyers can only obtain loans through Estridgeâ€™s partner, the First Internet Bank of Indiana. Similar arrangements accounted for much of the turmoil in the current housing market, he said, as lenders appraised homes at low rates and owners became overwhelmed when the rates returned to their normal level.

â€œI donâ€™t think they would put themselves in that position, though,â€? he said. â€œEstridge has a high level of integrity.â€? Cannava said the idea arose in response to the recent housing slump. The company was unwilling to sell discounted homes, fearing that would jeopardize the value of its existing homes and alienate previous buyers. With their competitorsâ€™ most common strategy off the table, she said, they had to get creative. â€œThe other builders are perpetuating the problem,â€? she said. â€œThis way, we can put $40,000 in somebodyâ€™s pocket without taking anything away from the value of the home.â€? So far, response to the program has been overwhelmingly positive, she said. The company has yet to announce the promotion on a large scale, informing only potential buyers and real estate agents. But it has spread rapidly via word-of-mouth, much to Cannavaâ€™s surprise. â€œI have never seen a response like this,â€? she said. â€œNot even when the market was booming. I canâ€™t even imagine the reaction after we do our full marketing releases.â€? Estridge homes are also available in Avon, Brownsburg, Fishers, Franklin and Zionsville.

Four Duds in the Stock Market - Jubak also has four stocks which he refers to as “fundamentally damaged.” Citigroup (C) tried too hard to become the one-stop-shop for customers’ needs beyond consumer banking, and in the process lost more than it gained. Boeing (BA) can’t get its new products out on time, and the delays are costly, especially when new products from other manufacturers are available now. Nvidia (NVDA), a graphics chip manufacturer, is facing increased competition from a variety of sources, including Intel. Finally, Valero Energy (VLO) will face problems due to squeezed profit margins as oil prices have escalated and competition from refineries being built in the Middle East.

Five Bargain Stocks - Looking for a great investment? If you are following the long-term investor’s time-proven strategy of starting with a small position and then adding more each month by dollar-cost averaging, these five stocks may just be for you, according to Jim Jubak of MSN Money: General Cable (BGC), McDonald’s (MCD), Proctor and Gamble (PG), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM), and Toyota Motor (TM). In case you’re wondering, in dollar-cost averaging, you buy the same dollar amount of a stock each month. That means you buy fewer shares when the price per share is high and more when it’s low.

WHAT’S IT WORTH? MY OPINION:
By John Pacilio, RE/MAX Ability Plus
Type: Traditional Age: Built in 1988 Location: Near 106th Street and Gray Road Neighborhood: Kingswood is a custom-built neighborhood with sizable lots and mature trees. Square footage: 3715 plus an additional 724 in the unfinished basement Rooms: This four-bedroom home has an open floor plan, updated kitchen, large dining room open to a two-story great room, main floor master, main floor office, expansive upstairs bonus room with vaulted ceilings and skylights, and screened porch. Strengths: The attractive kitchen boasts granite counter tops, stainless appliances, tile back splash and hardwoods. In lieu of
a finished basement, the versatile upstairs bonus room is ideal for a game room or second great room. The partially wooded backyard has a screened porch, built in fire pit, rear fence and wood deck. Challenges: Many comparable homes in this price range offer a three-car garage which may deter some buyers.

— msnbc.msn.com Enzyme may cause endometriosis - Scientists in England have identified an enzyme that could be responsible for a condition called endometriosis, the most common cause of pelvic pain in women. They discovered that an enzyme, called telomerase, is released by cells in the inner lining of the womb during the latter stages of the menstrual cycle in women who are affected by endometriosis. The research will help scientists develop new techniques for diagnosing and treating the condition. — www.sciencedaily.com Sounds Olympic! - Try the Romanian deadlift to jump squat to develop explosive strength in your legs and lower back muscles.

arl Jung said, “Learn your theories as best you can. Then put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul.” Healing Touch Therapy (HT) is as close to touching the miracle of the living soul as medical practice generally gets. Using their hands in a trained and intentional way, Healing Touch Certified Practitioners support and facilitate healing. The technique is complimentary to traditional health care and was developed in 1989 by Holistic Nurse of the Year, Janet Mentgen, and is rooted in the idea that all healing has a significant spiritual component integrating body, mind and spirit. Its uses include facilitating wound healing; reducing pain; decreasing anxiety, depression, stress; and preparation for and recovery from medical treatments and surgeries and management of their side effects Locally, HT is available at Clarian North, St. Francis Hospital, and South Bend General. It is, however, also practiced worldwide and in over 30 U.S. hospitals. NYU Medical Center in New York finds that it is so beneficial to open heart surgery patients that the facility offers it to patients at no charge as a compliment to their traditional rehabilitation.

Approved Flu Vaccinations - U.S. health regulators have approved six versions of the influenza vaccine to help combat the virus during the 2008-2009 flu season. The vaccines include GlaxoSmithKline Plc’s Fluarix and FluLaval; Novartis AG’s Fluvirin; Sanofi Aventis SA’s Fluzone and CSL Ltd’s Afluria. The FDA also cleared the AstraZeneca’s FluMist nasal spray flu vaccine. Each vaccine contains the same three strains of the influenza virus, which experts choose every year.

Prevent infection - Throw away eye makeup 6 months after opening. The applicators used to apply mascara, liner, and shadow are repeatedly exposed to bacteria in the air and on your lashes; after 6 months of everyday use, they can overpower the products’ preservatives, says John Bailey, PhD. Liquid products that don’t touch the eyes, such as foundation, can be used for up to 2 years; dry face products like powder are generally formulated to last at least 3.

Therese Iknoian, author of Fitness Walking, says good form is the key to dropping pounds when fitness walking. The most common mistakes with corrections follow: Leaning too far forward. If your bottom is sticking out and your back hurts frequently after walking, youâ€™re leaning too far forward. While you donâ€™t have to be stick-straight up, a more upright position will not only alleviate your back pain, it will lead to better breathing, too. Sloppy strides. If your hat or ponytail is flopping when youâ€™re walking, your stride is probably too long. While many people think a longer stride means a faster walk, too long a stride actually slows you down. Try walking at several different stride length to find which is most comfortable â€“ and least bouncy â€“ for you. Arm flapping. Wringing arms in and out sends energy sideways, slowing you down. Make certain your arms are bent at 90 degree angles at the elbows and move them forward and backward (not in and out) only.
