Merchant’s Square lands new tenant By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

An innovative and unique dining-and-entertainment venue has chosen Merchants’ Square in Carmel to be its third location nationwide. Texas-based Flix Brewhouse will open a coming soon 37,000-square-foot, all-in-one, full-service restaurant, first-sun movie theatre and microbrewery in the fall of 2014. Flix Brewhouse, which is the only concept of its kind in the U.S., will occupy the former Hobby Lobby site, which will receive a brick façade facelift and will be restructured with higher ceilings to accommodate the stadium-style seating. It will feature eight wallto-wall curved screen theatres with “dining rooms,” seating a total of 1,000 patrons. The tables will be on a gliding system so they can be pulled up to the seats, and each seat will have its own server call button. Patrons can order food before or during a movie. “We are so excited to be in Carmel,” Flix Brewhouse CEO Allan Reagan said in a phone interview. “I wish we could open tomorrow. We have a stateof-the-art facility planned, including one large format projection auditorium with Dolby Atmos(R) immersive sound. Really a premiere movie-going experience. “But we are a restaurant first. We will have a massive kitchen facility. I anticipate that we could be putting out as many as 800 meals in an hour at peak times. And we’ll have as many as a dozen of our own microbrews in addition to a selection of other locally popular craft beers.” Flix currently plans to offer only beer and wine, but has not entirely ruled out a three-way liquor license. In addition to the option of dining in one of the theaters, there also will be a lobby bar and eatery open seven days a week. The lobby area will have a full view of the microbrewery, and patrons can enjoy refreshments, such as a bottle of wine, while waiting for their movie to start and then carry it in with them. The original Flix Brewhouse opened in Round Rock, Texas, in 2011. The company plans to open another theater in Des Moines, Iowa, in 2014 as well as the Carmel location. However, the menus and exteriors will be adapted to each location. The Texas location offers weekend breakfast with a movie for families, and Reagan plans to offer the same here. “What would appeal to the folks in Texas is not necessarily going to appeal to the folks in Carmel or Des Moines,” Reagan said. “So, we’re working on

menus for each market. And I understand that Carmel has very high standards when it comes to design, so we’re going to make it look really nice, too.” Reagan anticipates that the new facility will add a total of 150 full- and part-time jobs to Carmel. Other Merchants’ Square tenants are excited about the news. “The more thriving businesses we have in Merchants’ Square, the better off we’ll all be,” said Danielle Ireland, general manager of the Woodhouse Day Spa. “Since we’re not visible from the street, it will be great to have increased traffic driving through the plaza.” Camille Walker, assistant manager of Teddy’s Burger Joint, which opened in March, said, “I think it will help Merchants’ Square come alive. They’ll have to build their clientele just like we did. I think it will be nice to be able to go over there when we’re off of work.” In addition to Teddy’s Burger Joint, Merchants’ Square recently has added other tenants including: Tuesday Morning, O’Reilly’s Auto Parts, Einstein Brothers Bagels, Play It Again Sports, the Goldfish Swim Academy and Salon Lofts. Merchants’ Square is owned and managed by Ramco-Gersheson Properties Trust, of Farmington Hills, Mich. According to a statement, it also is in negotiations with several other national retailers and restaurants, which it declined to name. Ramco-Gersheson will be presenting design plans soon to the Carmel Plan Commission, and Reagan said he hopes work will begin on the space before the end of the year.

Carmel City Council recap What happened: A Carmel Redevelopment Commission update was presented What it means: There was supposed to be a report on the status of the CRC from Dave Bowers, the council’s appointee to the commission. He was not there, and no one seemed to know whether there had been a miscommunication or if there was another reason for Bowers’ absence.

What’s next: The report was rescheduled to the next council meeting Sept 4.

What happened: The board discussed concerns about skateboarding What it means: Councilor Ron Carter brought up the fact that he feels that skateboarders are ruining the City Center green area as well as the amphitheatre; he estimated that the damage could run as high as $40,000. Mayor Jim Brainard mentioned an accident that involved a skateboarder at Main Street and the Monon during the weekend. It was suggested that skateboarding be banned from Main Street. Council President Rick Sharp concurred and also mentioned the continuing hazard of drivers who are confused as to whether or not they are supposed to stop at the Monon intersection.

What’s next: No conclusive suggestions or conclusions were reached; merely dialogue on the subject. The skateboarding issue would need to be brought forth in a proposed ordinance for consideration.

What happened: An amendment to the PUD was discussed: What it means: Chamber president Mo Merhoff again spoke against the proposed amendments to the Planned Urban Development regulations. (Which has been rejected once by the council in July and returned to the plan commission. It was returned again.) Council members and the plan commission cannot agree on revisions.

What’s next: It has been sent to the Land Use, Annexation and Economic Development committee for review.

What happened: Civic Theatre Funding was released What it means: The council voted to release $200,000 in funding to the Civic Theatre, on the condition that the Civic simultaneously release its $200,000 lease payment. Sharp said that this was a one-time solution to the issue and was only undertaken due to “widespread confusion amongst the general public about the council’s intent.”

What’s next: In future years, it will be handled as a bookkeeping transfer.

Other News: Brainard honored school board president Layla Spanenberg for her heroic actions in aiding an injured hiker on a recent Scouts’ outing. Only five council members were present at the meeting. Both Carol Schleif and Eric Seidensticker were absent. The first council meeting in September will take place on Sept. 4 due to the Labor Day holiday. Compiled by Karen Kennedy

Turf proposed for practice fields

By Nina Johnson • news@currentincarmel.com Carmel Dads’ Club president Jack Beery and Carmel Clay Schools Asst. Supt. Roger McMichael have proposed a new capital education funding project that will provide artificial turf for two practice fields north of the Carmel High School stadium. School board discussions considering a partnership between CCS and Carmel Dads’ Club should produce a written proposal by the August meeting. “Over the last five years, we’ve improved our programming by improving our facilities,” Beery said. He explained Dads’ Club had “identified a need for (more) field turf” because sports programs extend into December while “natural fields get damaged by heavy rains and can’t be used.” Beery also pointed out artificial turf not only prolongs the playing season but prevents injuries. CHS Athletic Director Jim Inskeep confirmed installing artificial turf in the football stadium increased use by high school programs and the community. “The major benefits of expanding artificial turf projects involves the sheer number of students served in Clay township,” Inskeep said. Inskeep believes turfing the two practice fields would particularly benefit the Lacrosse program of Clay Township with the hopes lacrosse will “eventually be included at the high

school at varsity level.” Beery added Dads’ Club would “like to evaluate the practice fields for baseball and softball, too.” McMichael emphasized turfing the practice fields would benefit “not just athletic programs, but also physical education and performing arts such as the marching band.” “We don’t want to permanently stripe the fields,” McMichael said. “We’d like to use temporary stripes to allow for more activities.” Beery proposed Dads’ Club would provide “a strong financial investment in helping this happen.” Beery and McMichael agreed discussions included Dads’ Club providing the monetary equivalent of turf for one of the practice fields while the Capital Project Fund would pay for the second.

Grand Park will amp up tourism By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

The impending completion of Westfield’s Grand Park sports facility will have a huge impact on local, regional and state public service economies, as well as adding just one more reason why Hamilton County is one of the top places in the U.S. to live and raise a family. The Westfield mayor’s office estimates that, during a five-year period, the park will generate more than 17,000 jobs at an average annual salary of $43,000. They are also forecasting 400,000 visitors per year in the first year alone and estimate those visitors will stay in Hamilton County for two to four days per trip. This will add up to about 1.5 million daily visits per year, and will add an estimated $1.04 billion to the local economy. Carmel Chamber of Commerce members learned more details of the Westfield Grand Park Sports Development at a lunch on Aug. 14. Steve Henke and his son, Brad, of Henke Development Group, LLC, along with William Knox of the Hamilton County Sports Authority (a department of the Hamilton County Convention and VisiHenke tor’s Bureau) presented to a full house at the Bridgewater Clubhouse in Westfield. According to Henke, Grand Park will spread across 400 acres in Westfield, bordered on the north by 191st Street, the south by 186th Street and the west by Springmill Road with the eastern edge nearly bordering U.S. 31. Henke pointed out that when U.S. 31 work is complete and it becomes a freeway, there will be easy access to the park via two-laned roundabout interchanges. Scheduled to open in April 2014, the park will feature 26 baseball diamonds, 31 multi-purpose fields for soccer, lacrosse, football, rugby and field hockey and two multi-purpose indoor facilities. An elaborate drainage system along with a total of eight synthetic fields will greatly reduce the risk of weather-related tournament delays. The Monon Trail will eventually run through the park, which also will have nine lakes. “This will not just be a sports complex,” Steve Henke said. “It will be a destination park for all

of Hamilton County. There will be opportunities for kayaking, paddle boating, miniature golf, and also a large, outdoor projection screen for movie nights.” Another unique feature of the park is the 220acre, mixed-use facility called Grand Park Village, which will be a destination on its own. The village will surround the largest of the lakes, and will boast an Atlantic City-style boardwalk and a marina. Restaurants and retail stores will line the boardwalk. In a phone interview, Brad Henke said, “We currently have five full-service restaurants committed, including a large Indianapolis chain. We also have an ice cream shop and a national pizza chain. We are in the final stages of negotiation with a national hotel group that wants to build two properties; one just outside the park, near U.S. 31 and Ind. 32, and one inside the park, each with approximately 120 rooms. “Most everything in the park will have a Cape Cod feel,” he said, “including the two-story concession stands which will house offices above.” Grand Park will be home to the Indiana Soccer Association, which has a membership of 60,000 young athletes, as well as the Indiana Bulls. Upon its completion, Grand Park will be the largest mixed-use sports complex in the U.S.

Martha Dugan – the sweetest soul Commentary by Dave Dugan

Longtime Carmel resident Martha Dugan was born in Tuscola, Ill., on Oct 25, 1931. She married my dad, Jim, in 1954, (they were viewpoint inseparable for more than 59 years) and moved to Carmel’s Main Street in 1961 along with me and my sister, Debbie. No roundabouts back then, but we did have a classic movie theater and Toot’s Drive-in. Residents may remember seeing Martha running around town in her ‘64 T-Bird with her beautiful blue eyes, perennial tan and blindingwhite sneakers. Mom volunteered at our schools, played golf, bridge and bowled, but her main focus was maintaining a warm and loving home for our family. In the 60s and 70s, our family never missed a Greyhound basketball game and Martha was passionate about I.U. and Butler basketball, the Bears, Pacers and Colts. She had an infectious laugh and no problem laughing at herself. My greatest comedy influences were my parents. While doing standup at Crackers, I had a segment where I included my mom. Resistant to being “in the spotlight,” but ever-supportive, she mustered up her courage and joined me on stage. That was the kind of person Mom was – ALWAYS thinking of others first. Even in her last few months, no matter how bad she felt, she focused on how everyone else was doing. She was an incredible cook and a total “clean freak.” She could vacuum the entire house and not leave a footprint or track. Our friends were always welcome (as long as they took their shoes off)! Mom put her heart into every holiday. In addition to creating many special memories, mom collected Christmas houses, music boxes and guardian angels.

Martha touched a lot of lives. If everyone had her unselfish heart and her sweet soul, the world would surely be a better place. Mom passed away unexpectedly after complications from a simple surgical procedure, Aug. 18. A few days before, I brought Mom to our house, she sat on our porch and listened to her favorite songs … she didn’t feel well, but she kept smiling and said it was such a fun and wonderful day! Every moment with mom was golden. Ironically, much like her guardian angels were to her, mom is now our guardian angel, and the best angel heaven could ever have. Although I write this with tears in my eyes, we also are filled with joy that we had the most wonderful mother, wife and grandmother ever. We love you forever Martha/Mom/Grandma – Jim, Dave, Debbie, Heidi, Derek, Max and Riley.

Martha Jean Dugan, 81 of Carmel, died Aug. 18 from surgical complications. She was born Oct. 25, 1931, to Willard and Mary Price in Tuscola, Ill. Their family moved to Indianapolis, where Martha graduated from Shortridge High School and where she met the love of her life, Jim Dugan. They wed in 1954 and raised two children, Dave and Debbie, in a very loving and fun home. Martha was preceded in death by her sisters Marguerite, Ivy, Betty Jane and Faye. She is survived by her sister Judy Nuzum, Jim Dugan, Dave and Heidi Dugan and their children Max and Riley and Debbie Dugan Martz and her son, Derek.There will be no public services. Memorial contributions may be made in Martha’s memory to the American Cancer Society online at www.cancer.org/donate or by mail to P.O. Box 22718, Oklahoma City, OK 73123-1718.

BUILDERS AND WRECKERS I watched them tearing a building down, A gang of men in a busy town. Philanthropy With a ho, heave, ho and a lusty yell They swung a beam and a wall fell. I asked the foreman, “Are these men skilled? Like the men you’d hire if you had to build?” He laughed as he replied, “No, indeed Just common labor is all I need. I can easily wreck in a day or two What builders have taken years to do.” I asked myself as I went away Which of these roles have I tried to play? Am I a builder who works with care, Measuring life by rule and square? Or am I a wrecker who walks the town Content with the labor of tearing down? A good friend of mine shared this poem with me. Although the author is unknown, the powerful message should resonate with readers in varying degrees; sustained by perspective. Through this column, I regularly have the privilege of interacting with amazing leader volunteers who genuinely project a builder’s attitude. They are mentors to me, and I applaud them for their effort to assure Carmel is vibrant, compas-

sionate, growing and continues to be the best place to live in the country. But, wreckers are a fact of life. Although some people have the enviable skill to clearly see what could be, a vocal few cynics persuasively can only communicate despair. The beauty of our system is that we unmistakably have many more builders than wreckers; to use the poem’s terminology. I encourage and welcome constructive criticism and probing, but there is a right way and a wrong way to voice dissent. I see the adjective, constructive, disappearing from our local dust-ups. Do you ever wonder whether we are needlessly sacrificing decorum, respect, collaboration and basic decency in exchange for selfpromotion and front page headlines? Are ideas in Carmel vetted on merit or instead, judged solely on who will not get the credit? Today I challenge us to demand courtesy in our public forums. Stamp our condescension. Let the public square again assume a basic sense of civility and politeness. Don’t let the wreckers tear down the builders without the proper permit; good manners.

High schools throughout Hamilton and Boone counties have AP success stories.

46% Carmel High School student body participation

Because Carmel High School has had such success with its advanced placement program, it is looking into expanding the course to include an even broader scope that includes a research project and seminar. (File photos)

57% Zionsville Community High School student body participation

Carmel High School tops the charts in Advanced Placement participation By Nina Johnson • news@currentincarmel.com Carmel High School has reached a level that very few high schools do. CHS was recognized cover story at the Indiana Advanced Placement Recognition Reception for attaining 46 percent student-body participation in the National Advanced Placement program. Schools are recognized for reaching at least 25 percent of their student body taking and passing an advanced placement course. “Carmel High School is one of a very small number of schools that met this threshold all five years,” Interim Supt. Dr. Steve Tegarden said. “The National Advanced Placement staff noted the exemplary status that Indiana Tegarden as a state has in the program,” Tegarden said. “Per capita, Indiana is the number one state in the nation in terms of accessibility on advanced placement exams.” Daniel Altman, press secretary of the Indiana Dept. of Education, confirmed Indiana’s percentage of graduates who have taken at least one advanced placement exam leads the nation. “Indiana also ranks fourth nationally in the percentage of graduates earning scores of three or higher on an AP exam,” he said. Based on each state’s total number of students taking the exams, Indiana ranks 26th in exam performance.

Deputy Supt. of Public Instruction Danielle Shockey, Commissioner of Higher Education Teresa Lubbers and College Board’s Jill Jeppe presented awards at a ceremony in the Indiana Statehouse. Carmel representatives included Tegarden, Asst. Principal Karen McDaniel and CHS’s Advanced Placement geography teacher Justin Quick. David Liang attended as Carmel’s student representative. His extensive Advanced Placement coursework contributed to his recent appointment to the U.S. Chemistry Olympiad team with which he earned a gold medal. Other local high schools earned awards for successful advanced placement programs: Zionsville Community achieved 57 percent, Westfield 42 percent, Fishers 39 percent and Noblesville earned 28 percent. Carmel offers more than 30 Advanced Placement courses for high school students. These courses follow a college board-certified curriculum and students earn college credit after suc-

Graduation rate

In 2011, the U.S. Dept. of Education released an official list of graduation rates based on consistent national standards. • No. 1 – Iowa – 88 percent • No. 2 – Wisconsin and Vermont – 87 percent • No. 3 – Indiana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas – 86 percent

cessful scores on Advanced Placement exams. All Indiana accredited universities recognize these credits, so students gain a head start on university studies with considerable savings. An additional program soon may be an option for Carmel students. Tegarden expressed interest in a new Cambridge Capstone Program being tested in 17 high schools. Pilot programs are under way at schools in California, Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Tennessee, Texas and Washington. “I am pleased to know of Carmel’s continued interest in this program,” said Amy Marsh, Indiana’s coordinator for Advanced Placement. “I believe the district will be a perfect fit for this program, with a student population well prepared for this rigorous path.” The Cambridge program includes advanced placement courses with the addition of a research project and seminar. “Ideally, a student would self-select this rigorous course of study,” Marsh said. “The program would challenge students and be a fantastic preparation for college academic work.” “The new program aims to help students develop stronger backgrounds in independent research, collaborative teamwork and 21st-century knowledge and skills,” states the college board’s website. Focus on the Advanced Placement program increased during former Indiana Supt. of Public Instruction Tony Bennett’s term. In 2009, when Indiana exam pass rates lingered at 10.4 percent, the state board set the 25-percent goal.

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP Civic lineup has something for all

Stress eating, Hoosier style It is our position that the latest obesity study indicates that life in the Hoosier state may be a little too cushy for some Baby Boomers. In the annual “F as in Fat” report by the Trust for America’s Health and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Hoosiers ages 45 to 64 have a 37 percent obesity rate, ranking seventh worst in the nation. Indiana’s adult obesity rate is 31.4 percent, ranking eighth highest in the nation, the same ranking as last year. Some may say obese Hoosiers have reached a plateau, only it’s not the right kind of plateau attributed to weight loss coming to a standstill as the result of adhering to a weight loss plan. It appears that the Hoosier sandwich generation may be enjoying a few too many pork tenderloins and extra-large pieces of sugar cream pie. Let’s face it, for most, living a consistently healthy life-style is hard, especially for those that are under stress and have hurried schedules due to simultaneously raising children, holding down jobs and caring for aging parents. In reality, sedentary vocations, the frenetic pace and expectations of modern life and the skyrocketing cost of living are enough to drive anyone to the pantry.

Order your own Commentary by Terry Anker Each year, our boys and I scout the local merchants seeking just the right item for their mother’s and grandmother’s birthdays and Christmas. With the passage of time, we have seen thoughtful, almost obsessive, attention to the task – while other years required considerable effort on my part to remind them of the joy of giving. One year found us at an establishment that carried a stunning array of perfumed candles. Excited that we’d arrived at the point that our kids were taking notice of their mother’s interests (previous years they’d suggested that Mom might like toys – if she didn’t, they would happily play with them for her), we indulged in an hour sampling each scent from lavender to theater popcorn (the ultimate choices). Without missing a beat, these wise women rewarded the effort made by the fledgling gift-givers. The gift of time, and caring, was far more important than the meager present. While we may respect and admire the dedi-

cation of thoughtful givers, life has squeezed time to the point that we are most likely to stockpile a go-to present for dinner party hosts and business colleagues. It has to be something tasteful, to be sure. It should also represent the things that connect us – not those that divide. Ideally, this universal donor of gifts might remind the receiver time and again of the friend who shared it. I’ve found such a gift in the Indiana Humanities publication “Food for Thought: An Indiana Harvest.” It tells the story of individual people and their personal connection with food. It inspires those who read it to consider and share their own stories. How could a book do more? And if you invite me over for dinner you might get a copy! Easier still, order one of your own.

The curtain is about to go up on Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre’s season at The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts. And, as has been the case the previous two seasons since Civic relocated from Indianapolis, we’re thrilled to be a main-stage sponsor of the season. Founded in 1915, it now is under the proficient management of Executive Director Cheri Dick and Artistic Director Bob Sorbera. The principal resident company of the 500-seat theatre will produce “Pippin” (Sept. 6-21), “Schoolhouse Rock Live” (Sept. 2528), “1940s Radio Hour” (Oct. 25-Nov. 9), “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” (Dec. 13-Jan. 4), “Steel Magnolias” (Feb. 7-22) and “The Cat in the Hat” (Feb. 25-March 2). We’re certain it will be a season to remember, because that’s exactly what Civic always delivers. It’s not too soon to buy season or single-show tickets. You may do so at www.civictheatre. org or 843-3800. ••• As you may know by now, INDOT has opened the U.S. 31 interchange at 161st Street, and it has shown itself to be a wonderful harbinger of what the project holds for our city. Rieth-Riley Construction oversaw the replacement of the former intersection, which was closed in April to allow crews to construct a new bridge-and-ramp system with roundabouts. We’re big fans of the improvements – especially the roundabouts that keep traffic flowing - and believe we all can expect much the same innovation with the rest of the project in Westfield and points north and south.

Sprouting, not wilting

Editor, My wife and I are long-term residents and real estate investors in the Village of West Clay. I must say that I found your recent article titled “Wilting West Clay” to be inaccurate. As I drove through the Village recently, I counted over 20 homes under construction. Wilting? I think not. Count the hundreds of people enjoying one of the Village’s summer concerts on the green. Wilting? I think not. Every home that is built, sold and occupied, adds another household and disposable income to the Village market. There is no question that our retail district has had some real problems gaining footing. I would like to point out however, that the three anchor businesses that closed all had unusual circumstances relating to the owners that led to their failure. In my opinion, these unusual circumstances had a profound impact

on the businesses and severely diminished their chances of success. These failures were not the fault of the Village, its residents or its developers. Am I disappointed in the current situation of the retail/restaurant facilities in the Village? Of course. I am, however, also very optimistic that the Village will succeed in its quest to have the downtown environment as envisioned by its planners and developers. We are seeing signs of it already with the pending construction of a building that will house a new restaurant One of my favorite movies is “Field Of Dreams.” That famous line “If you build it, they will come” applies to the Village. It’s built, the residential numbers get better month by month. It’s only a matter of time, a short matter of time, before the retail and restaurant environment in The Village of West Clay sprouts, not wilts. Jim Winner, 46032

Time to interview the parents Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Well, I’ve gone and done it now. I am bawling my eyes out after having finally watched a video of my paternal grandmother humor sharing her memories. I say finally because Nanny died in 2006, and I received the DVD the following Christmas. You’d think that after seven years I would be able to get through the thing without losing my fashizzite, but no dice thanks to the stupid melancholy background music with lyrics like “Where are you, Claire?” Yes, her name was Claire. Actually, I had forgotten I owned the thing until my daughter was looking for a lost Hello Kitty wallet (with a whole $11 in it, thank you very much!). She pulled out the case and asked “Who’s this old lady?” When I told her, she had to clarify “Is this Granny, Nanny or Mamaw Johmann?” [All three grandmas passed within a couple of years of each other, and she has vague recollections of each.] “Cool! Nanny was in a movie?” [I wish! She totally could have played a Hogwarts’ professor.] I explained how my aunt had hired a woman to interview her and record her life stories. So this morning, having been rudely awakened early by the cat, I decided to visit with my favorite British grandmother. She mostly told tales of wartime England, some I’d heard before but some that were new. Like the day she walked two miles uphill in the snow (both ways) to get to a hospital for a monkey bite to her shin.

Classic Nanny. I laughed through most of this portion, remembering her constant tea drinking (with lots of milk and sugar) and penchant for exaggeration. But seeing the old black and white photographs of her and my grandfather, some with my uncle and my father as young children, brought forth so many questions. How did my grandparents meet? Was my grandfather present at my dad’s birth? Where was the house where she was sheltered from German bombings in London? Now that Nanny’s gone, I may never know the answers. And that’s what upset me most. I may not have that much time left with my own parents, and yet I rarely take advantage of the fact that they still have much to tell. Why haven’t my sisters and I recorded their stories, too? I miss Nanny, but she led a long, mostly happy life. Still, I’d give anything for one more afternoon with her. So I’ll channel my tears into something productive, and make the time to “interview” mom and dad. I’m not sure they can compete with World War II monkey attacks, but at least their grandchildren will have something that they can always remember them by. Peace out.

Was that you or I?

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Custody Child Support Prenuptial Agreements Adoptions Education Law

I created quite a stir at the Unitarian Church last Sunday. Mary Ellen was embarrassed when she first heard it. The entire conhumor gregation was starting to look in my general direction. Noelle started elbowing her husband. She thought Dan was the instigator. Dan was almost 100 percent sure it wasn’t him. Spouses were poking each other and some of the kids were giggling. My wife thought I should excuse myself from the sanctuary. Was that my stomach growling? No one has this identification problem with other bodily eruptions. Everyone clearly knows who the originator is – although with one sound in particular (and its result) there is usually blame-shifting that unfairly maligns the family dog. But with things like sneezing, hiccupping, and coughing, it’s seldom an issue. I’ll admit that I do have loud internal plumbing. Each week, I record a version of this newspaper column for broadcast on the local public radio station. Scott Hoke, my producer, listens through his headset during the recording session to ensure the audio is top quality. “Let’s do that last line over again, Dick. I just heard WFYI’s sewer back up. Or was that your stomach?” The technical name for a grumbling stomach is borborygmi. The term comes from the Greek word borborugmos. The dictionary says this is an example of onomatopoeia, a word that imitates

the sound associated with something. Yes, just like the Anglo-Saxon term bowwow accurately mimics the noise your Rottweiler makes, the Greeks nailed it with boborgymi. Now, before you start googling (which is also medical jargon for what my stomach is doing), I have already looked up this symptom, and I am now aware that stomach rumbling is one indication of about 35 different illnesses, including uremia, mesenteric ischemia, aerophagia and functional dyspepsia – none of which I had ever heard of. When your insides churn noisily, your brain is sending a message to your gut to prepare for a meal. As one medical site notes, your belly is saying: “Hungry. No food here; must eat soon.” Why do stomachs sound like Tonto talking to the Lone Ranger? Apparently, your intestines are always growling, says another expert, but when you have eaten, you are less likely to hear them. I’ve been at my computer writing this column all afternoon and my wife just sent me an email saying she had a tough day and wants to go out for a quiet dinner. I hated to tell her, but that wasn’t going to happen. Not when I’m this hungry.

Forget the burgers: Clambake, anyone?

Commentary by Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

Labor Day reminds us that summer is coming to a close. It’s the symbolic last hurrah in the backyard – the time to relish the shade that the leaves on our trees can provide one more time, labor day because the next thing we know we’ll be wearing our fleeces and raking them. So why not throw a party? Maybe you’ve been meaning to have your neighbors over for a cookout all summer. But a Labor Day party doesn’t have to mean burgers on the grill, and it doesn’t have to mean buying all the red, white and blue decorations you can find at the party goods store. It could be a little more creative… Since Hamilton County is lovingly referred to as the “Hamptons of the Midwest,” why not bring the Hamptons to your backyard? Why not be the “Barefoot Contessa” of your neighborhood? Let’s import a little East Coast style this Labor Day. Here are some ideas: Menu: You’re probably not interested in digging a big hole in your backyard to do a proper clambake. But, you could create a menu that embodies the spirit of a clambake, such as: • Lobster or crab sliders with lemon aioli • Cioppino (Seafood stew) • Chunks of seasoned, oven-roasted sweet corn and red potatoes • Grilled crusty loaves of bread rubbed with olive oil and fresh garlic, sprinkled with sea salt And we’ve all had plenty of watermelon this summer, but it doesn’t have to just be cut in wedges. Consider a watermelon gazpacho or salad of watermelon, crumbled feta and mint finished with reduced balsamic vinegar. For dessert, there’s nothing better (or easier) than a fresh fruit crisp warm from the oven with a scoop of good quality gelato (home-made ice cream is even better if someone in your family is so inclined!) Hollowed and stuffed cherry tomatoes make a quick and festive appetizer (and one the kids can help do).

Drinks: Cape Codders are an obvious choice. Electric Blue Lemonades will match the décor. And the citrusy tang of frozen orange-bourbon slush is a perfect complement to seafood. Premix any of these and have them ready for self-serve as your guests arrive. Use aluminum tubs filled with ice for soft drinks and bottled water and white wine. Décor: First of all, forget the red, white and blue. We did that in July. What about just the cool simplicity of cobalt blue and white, set off by rustic aluminum? It fits the breezy, beachy feel, and it’s inexpensive, too. A nice blue background set off by repurposed large and small aluminum cans or mason jars filled with white daisies sets a gorgeous stage. Go to the fabric store and look for a cobalt blue and white print fabric; you’ll need three yards to cover a 6-foot banquet table. You can also use mason jars to hold utensils, napkins and candles, or use them to serve gazpacho, drinks or dessert. Scatter seashells or sand dollars on the buffet. White Christmas lights in the trees, around the deck or on your buffet table will complete your look, and create a warm feel when the sun goes down. If you have a fire pit, use it! Activity: Croquet is the perfect game to round out an East Coast evening, and it’s fun for grown-ups and kids alike. Enjoy! All of our menu items suggested here are easy to make ahead, so that when your guests arrive you can relax with them instead of spending your Labor Day laboring over a hot grill. Cheers. Visit our www.currentnightandday.com for the following recipes: • Electric Blue Lemonade • Orange Bourbon Slush • Watermelon Gazpacho • Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes • Cioppino

It feels like the season is changing, doesn’t it? Just lay back on your chaise lounge and look way up into the tree tops and you’ll notice an active, leaf-moving breeze that wasn’t there during those heavy, humid summer “dog days.” The nights and mornings are cooler, and it’s evident that fall is finally approaching to give us relief. The spent fields and brown roadsides have given us all they have for this year; now we can look forward to the change of season and the fall colors. These days, fall brings more than pretty leaves - it brings football and tailgating. There’s high school, college and our favorite pro football team that are starting their seasons and realizing a need to be more and more into their fans’ tailgating experience.

After all, tailgate parties are America’s chance to eat rich foods that add to the game night/day experience. They provide a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere to socialize with friends. We should add that they are relaxing and enjoyable if you follow a few simple food safety rules to keep your guests from experiencing problems.

Ingredients: 12 ounces sour cream cheese, softened; 1 (8 ounce) package shredded cheddar cheese; 1 tablespoon bacon bits; 12 ounces jalapeño peppers, seeded and halved; 1 cup milk; 1 cup all-purpose flour; 1 cup dry bread crumbs; 2 quarts oil for frying Directions: In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Spoon this mixture into the jalapeño pepper halves. Put the milk and flour into two separate small bowls. Dip the stuffed jalapeños first into the milk then into the flour, making sure they are well coated with each. Allow the coated jalapeños to dry for about 10 minutes. Dip the jalapeños in milk again and roll them through the breadcrumbs. Allow them to dry then repeat to ensure the entire surface of the jalapeño is coated. In a medium skillet, heat the oil to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). Deep fry the coated jalapeños 2 to 3 minutes each, until golden brown. Remove and let drain on a paper towel.

Q: I am a 63-year-old female who recently had a facelift. Because I am thin, I really had no fat just loose skin in aesthetics the neck and jowls. Now that I have gotten the skin tightened, how can I keep the facelift in place? I have read about a lot of things such as Thermage, Ultherapy and others and, while they sound good in theory, I have read that they don’t work for a lot of people. Some have said that the only really effective method of skin tightening is through collagen regeneration using a fully ablative CO2 laser. But laser resurfacing of the face can be associated with longterm pinkness of the skin. What do you recommend? A: The reality is that nothing can keep a facelift ‘in place’ forever as surgery does not stop the effects of time and gravity. But there are

certainly things to do to help slow down the process and make the results of a facelift last longer. Skin tightening and collagen rebuilding would be the correct approach after a facelift and, for many, should be considered maintenance therapies. There are numerous energybased devices for skin tightening and you have named a few of the most well known. I do think they have some benefit even if it is not the same for every patient. Light laser resurfacing also is a good choice and can be done with the other skin tightening treatments. And don’t forget such basic preventative measures for skin aging which include avoidance of excessive sun exposure, no smoking, a stable weight and a good daily skin treatment regimen.

Are umbrella policies worth it? Commentary by Jamie Ianigro

Question from John H. from Carmel: What’s the deal with umbrella policies? It just seems like an added cost, but my agent Insurance suggests I add one every year. Response from Jamie Ianigro: You are right to say that an umbrella policy is an added cost, but it is well-worth that cost for the additional protection it provides. I always encourage my clients to at least consider adding the extra layer of liability protection that an umbrella/catastrophe policy will add. An umbrella policy is really all about having the peace of mind in knowing that your family and assets are protected. There are many ways to end up with an umbrella claim but the most common umbrella claim is an auto accident involving multiple injuries and very costly medical bills. The other common claim is an incident on your property that results in injury. Medical and legal costs can eat up the underlying limits of your homeowner, auto, boat or motorcycle policy pretty quickly. Your umbrella policy or your personal assets cover these costs when your policy limits are exhausted. This is definitely a topic you should discuss with your independent insurance agent to make sure you are protected by a level of coverage

that you are comfortable with. Most people should be pretty comfortable with a coverage limit of $1 million, but limits more than $10 million are available if you are looking for more. I don’t want to say that umbrella claims are unpreventable because they are the type of claims that happen no matter how prepared you are. There are some things that make a claim more likely, such as having a pool, living on a lake, having a young driver or owning a boat/ATV/ snow mobile (basically anything fun).  A quick claim scenario… The son of a policy holder was driving his car on a short road trip with a friend, the claimant. The car drifted off the road and into a phone pole when the son fell asleep at the wheel. The passenger was hospitalized for more than a month with broken bones and internal injuries. The hospitalization was followed by some time in a wheelchair, but he was able to walk again after six months of physical therapy. This claim cost $800,000 with $300,000 coming from the auto limits and $500,000 coming from the umbrella limits.   Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services.

Try not to look ‘very forward’ Commentary by Jordan Fischer

Question: “My pet peeve is the misplacement of “very” in the heightening of the phrase ‘I am looking forward to it.’ As grammar guy far as I am concerned, the only way to make this stronger is to say, ‘I am looking forward to it very much,’ or, ‘I am very much looking forward to it.’ But some folks seem to think this is too ‘much of a muchness’ and say, “I am looking very forward to it,” (as opposed to looking backward to it?) or even, ‘I am very looking forward to it.’ The former comes up in my circle more often than the latter. The minute I hear ‘I am looking very forward to it,’ I stop looking forward to it at all.” (Alison Brown) Answer: I have to say, I agree with you, Alison. That is a very odd construction your friends have there. This is a perfect example of a grammar problem we talked about a few weeks ago: misplaced modifiers. When I hear the phrase “looking very forward,” I picture someone standing on their tiptoes, their upper body leaning forward, almost mimicking the classic stance of the hunter’s pointing dog. Or, maybe Wiley Coyote, overextended over the

cliff, moments before he realizes the Road Runner’s got his goat again. I suppose “looking very forward” could also mean dressing in a provocative manner … but I’m the last person who should be making fashion calls. Since “very forward” is at best a comical stance, and at worst deserving of a lecture from your grandma, and “very looking” just doesn’t make any sense (“Verily looking,” however, has a nice, Shakespearean vibe to it), we’re left to conclude that “very” is intended to intensify “much.” And, since we concluded just a few columns ago that modifiers should be placed as humanly close as possible to what they modify, so as to avoid any possible confusion, “very” and “much” should be stuck to one another like glue. So, good news this week, Alison: You’re right on the money with this one. Bad news: I’ve got no advice on how to get your friends off their wayward grammar path. Perhaps suggest their modifiers are a bit … disordered. Tell them the Grammar Guy said so. Verily. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing.

Trip to Karnak provides Biblical insight

Commentary by Don Knebel

Around 2000 B.C., an Egyptian pharaoh named Sesostris ordered construction of a new temple near Luxor, Egypt. For 1300 years, travel his successors kept building on the same site until the complex of temples, halls and obelisks now called Karnak had grown into the largest collection of religious structures in the world. Grateful pharaohs built and decorated walls at Karnak to thank the gods for enabling their military successes. One of those walls can date the reigns of Biblical kings David and Solomon. Amun was one of the most important of the gods worshipped at Karnak. An annotated wall drawing shows Amun delivering about 150 captured cities, each identified by hieroglyphs, to a pharaoh named Sheshonk (or Shoshenq). The translated names of the cities include Arad, Beth-Shean, Megiddo and other cities of ancient Israel. Scholars recognized that the Karnak wall memorializes an Egyptian campaign against “the fortified cities of Judah” the Bible says succeeded because King Rehoboam had abandoned the laws of Yahweh. The Bible identifies the conquering pharaoh as Shishak, which scholars say is another name for Sheshonk. So we have two records of the same military campaign, with only the god mandating the outcome differing between them. Using Greek and Egyptian records, scholars

have determined that Sheshonk ruled Egypt from about 943 to 922 B.C. Somewhat arbitrarily, they have dated his campaign against Judah to 925 B.C., three years before his reign ended. Since the Bible says the campaign occurred in Rehoboam’s fifth year, his father Solomon must have passed the throne to him in 930 or 931 B.C. Because Solomon reigned for 40 years, his father David died in about 970 B.C. Jerusalem is missing from Karnak’s long list of captured cities. The Biblical version of Sheshonk’s campaign (2 Chronicles 12) provides the reason. Sheshonk (or Shishak) spared Jerusalem (and Rehoboam) in exchange for “the trea-

surers of the temple of the Lord [Yahweh] and the treasurers of the royal palace.” For people curious about whether events described in the Bible really happened, a visit to Karnak can provide some insight. It also provides an opportunity to view some truly spectacular ancient structures. Don Knebel is a Zionsville resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY We use our muscles in everything we do. The act of standing still takes about 300 muscles alone, so imagine how many we put to use once our bodies are in motion. Just as we take measures to protect our heart health, our digestive health and even our skin, our muscles need protecting as well. Regular exercise along with proper stretching will go a long way in keeping our muscles active and healthy, but a massage by a trained and experienced massage therapist can give your muscular system a boost that you won’t find on any treadmill or weight bench. Salon 01’s licensed massage therapist, Anthony Leyden, has always been passionate about his work, and throughout his time in this industry, he has watched hundreds of clients reap the benefits of regular therapeutic massages. Anthony combines techniques from Swedish massage, reflexology and deep tissue depending on your specific needs. Call Salon 01 at 317-580-0101 to schedule your massage.

NEW ADVANCEMENT IN SKINCARE We have seen ads and commercials by all the leading drug store manufacturers for sonic facial cleansing brushes. This technology was actually created by a company called Clarisonic. The Clarisonic brand is not available in drugstores, though many imitation cleansing brush systems exist. Salon 01 carries the Clarisonic Pro for Face & Body. This facial brush cleanses 6x better then manual cleansing alone. The sonic micro-massage loosens and removes dirt, oil and makeup from pores. We have had excellent feedback from clients and staff alike who will never go a day again without using their Clarisonic. Don’t be fooled by copy cats that can actually irritate the skin over time! Stop in Salon 01 to learn more about this revolutionary skin cleansing and rejuvenating system today! MYTH BUSTERS We researched the following myths for you! Myth #1: A cold rinse adds shine and tames frizz. True. A blast of cold water at the end of your shower can make your hair appear shinier and smoother because it closes the cuticle. Myth #2: Hair can become immune to shampoo. False. Shampoo will always do its job. The trick is to get the right shampoo for your hair type and styling needs. Consult with a Salon 01 professional for a recommendation that is right for you. Myth #3: Brushing your hair often makes it healthier. False. Over-brushing your hair can actually dull it by destroying the cuticle as well as cause split ends and breakage.

New eyes treasure something old Commentary by Randy Sorrell

Capt. Arthur W. (Art) Hiatt 49, passed in his sleep Friday, August 16, 2013, in Los Angeles, California while traveling for work. Art was born on October 10, 1963, in Bluffton, Indiana, the son of Norma Jean Lawler and Arthur R. Hiatt. He graduated from Center Grove High School in 1982 and from Purdue University School of Aviation Technology in 1986. Following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Art achieved his lifelong dream of becoming a pilot. He flew for both private and commercial before spending the majority of his career with FedEx. As a captain of the MD11 aircraft, he flew internationally for nearly 18 years. Art married his best friend and love of his life, Janet Youngblood, on October 10, 1998. Together they shared a love of travel, appreciated gatherings with dear friends, and enjoyed spending time at their lake house. They were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Julia (12) and Audrey (9). Art cherished his children, and never missed an opportunity to be with them. Loved by all who met him, Art always had a smile on his face and the ability to make people laugh. He was a person of generous spirit, giving much time and energy to different children’s charities through FedEx and in the Indianapolis area. Art was an exceptional father, husband, son and pilot. He is survived by his adoring wife Janet, his daughters Julia and Audrey; mother, Norma Jean Lawler and sister Wendy Hiatt, of Indianapolis, IN; father Arthur (Carol) Hiatt of Punta Gorda, FL; aunt Peggy (Gene) Wellman of Glendale AZ; in-laws John and Judy Youngblood and sister-in-law Jennifer Youngblood, of Columbus IN. A celebration of Art’s life was held on Saturday August 24, 2013 at Coxhall Gardens in Carmel, Indiana. Contributions may be made to Chase Bank for the children’s college funds. More information can be found at Flanner and Buchanan-Carmel www.flannerbuchanan.com. Friends and family are welcome to sign Art’s guest book online.

Fresh eyes. Often, that’s what anxious homeowner’s hope for. An unbiased opinion. A creative perspective. And, thoughts on how to outdoors transform a stale backyard living space or add energy to a tired landscape. Or energy for how we live. It helps if an adviser’s perspective is not prejudiced by an area of specialty. A firm that just builds decks or pours concrete will likely guide its clients to do the obvious. The “fresh eyes” perspective will deliver a balanced approach that trends toward your likes and preferences. Rarely does a homeowner know precisely what they are looking for, it’s usually the opposite. Our responsibility is to guide. Smashed fingers. Diesel. Sweat. This site in the rolling hills near Turkey Run surrounded by God’s best creativity is a tasteful example. The previous deck was decayingly perched over a 30-foot dangerous slope that managed its way toward an updated pool. Another deck was the obvious solution and what we imagined. Yet, as we gratefully wandered the

wooded surroundings, massive boulder outcroppings with rich tones kept emerging. We wondered how we could marry these historic elements closer to the home and coordinate it with the grade changes required. After a handful of provocative designs, we landed with this blend of earthy flagstone patio spaces transitioned by more than 20 tons of rustic boulder walls merged with native greens. The massive back door stone steps were in 8 feet wide by 4 feet. It challenged our new skid steer. The men loved it. Sweat. Diesel fuel. Smashed fingers. “Fresh eyes” moved us from what would have worked quite well to something that spoke to the environment. Something that begs for interaction and hopes for engagement. Spaces that are both intimate in feel, yet generous enough to hold the distant family and friends as they descend on a magical retreat, found far off the road. Never get stale.

Plumbing fixtures are an important design element Commentary by David Decker

Faucets, shower heads and other types of plumbing can make a major impact on the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Between indoors selecting a style, finish and function, there’s a lot to decide on when it comes to picking out plumbing. Fortunately, the Affordable Companies has assembled a plumbing trends overview to help you make a decision. First, you will want to decide on the color and style of plumbing you’d like to install. It should complete the look of your kitchen or bathroom: not clash with it. In terms of color, faucets and plumbing are available in a variety of finishes including chrome, nickel, brass and gold. Select a finish and use it to coordinate with other accessories in the room (such as drawer hardware or towel holders). Let’s take a look at popular plumbing options for each room, beginning with the kitchen. Instead of a standard faucet, you should consider installing a pull-out model. These faucets are attached to a moveable cord so that water streams can be moved and directed whenever needed. The sink isn’t the only place in the kitchen were you may need a faucet.

Today, you can run plumbing and water throughout the kitchen in a variety of places. Install a faucet above the stove to fill pans with ease. Or, create a special vegetable peeling cabinet station complete with a garbage disposal. Now we can give a quick overview of bathroom plumbing options. It’s a good idea to coordinate all of your bathroom faucets with the bathtub and shower faucets for a cohesive design. You’ll also want to consider the functional features of each faucet in your bathroom. A hand shower can be useful for rinsing hair or showering young children. For a relaxing experience, the shower can be equipped with heads that jet water out of the walls or ceiling if you prefer. And if you are concerned about safety, faucets can be equipped with anti-scalding guards so that you don’t have to worry about a family member being burnt by hot water. Picking out plumbing and faucets can be a lot of fun, especially because you get the opportunity to check out new technologies and innovations. So try not to stress about the abundance of choices. Select pieces that work well for the activities you do most in your home.

Using different shower heads to customize your space can create a unique shower designed to not only clean but relax and pamper as well. (Submitted photo)
