OUR VIEWS

It is our position that Hamilton County students are fortunate to have talented, dedicated, enthusiastic and, above all, effective teachers influencing them on a daily basis. We also find the amount of support and cooperation the teachers get from most parents to be impressive. We believe that cooperation from both parents and teachers is essential in the proper upbringing of our children. They need structure at all times of the day and that can only be achieved by a united effort between the two parties. The teachers we have in Hamilton County are some of the best and most dedicated in the state. Some even spend their well-earned free time working on lessons that will help our students remember the material more effectively. While the students may enjoy the lessons and learn a lot in the classroom, it is the parents who are vital in helping retain that information when they take an active role in helping with homework. We understand that it can be tough to come home after a long day of work and sit at the kitchen table solving math problems, but without that help, our teachers would be facing a tougher challenge than what is already posed.

Coaches training

It is our position that those volunteering to coach should be highly praised for their willingness to spend their free time helping our kids with their respective sports. We also believe that these coaches should go through training when it comes to dealing with our athletes, no matter the age of the player. All stages of childhood have their separate problems and these athletes, hopefully, see their coaches as role models with whom they can talk. We need to be sure that these coaches are trained to deal with problems because giving the wrong information can be disastrous. Not only do the coaches need to know how to deal with their players, but parents also can cause problems that need to be dealt with. While we understand that the time requirements of coaching are great, we believe that whether they like the idea, they could be put into a sensitive situation and need to know how to effectively deal with the problem. And while we appreciate the time and effort that coaches put in with our players, we believe they should receive the proper training so they can be ready for issues both on and off the field.

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg man at Indiana University. That is a lofty attainment, and we’re thrilled for Lauren and her family. She will excel, no doubt, as a rare breed with ink in her blood. We wish her the best and hope you haven’t read the last of her in these pages. Lauren, the door is always open! ••• Nobody likes to talk about obituaries, except for some media outlets in our midst. Those death notices represent revenue centers for some of our counterparts. Not here at Current Publishing, though. We will publish those at no cost, because there is no joy in capitalizing on others’ grief. Please e-mail obituaries and photographs to managing editor Kevin Kane (kevin@youarecurrent.com).

Kelli Huntley got it all wrong in her letter to the editor published Aug. 16. It goes against the grain to yield to bikers, joggers, and walkers on the Monon Trail. Pedestrians never have the right of way when crossing a street (unless prompted by a walk sign), so why should they have the right of way simply because they’re using the Monon? When cars in traffic stop to allow Monon users to cross the street, they bring traffic to a quick halt. I have witnessed several

situations that could have resulted in serious accidents if drivers had not been paying careful attention.  In this age of constant cell phone usage by drivers, there is all the more reason to not stop for Monon users.  Please drivers, if Monon users (particularly bicyclers) have come to a complete stop to allow you to drive through, then drive through!

It is almost a daily occurrence that I see motorists and bicyclists either ignoring signs and rules of the road or not paying enough attention to what they are doing, creating the potential for an unfortunate or even tragic incident. I am sure people of that mindset will be using the Monon as well. It’s aggravating to have to accommodate those folks, but it creates even more concern for their safety, and the safety of others.  It’s time for bicyclists, roller bladers, skateboarders, runners and walkers to take responsibility for their own safety.  Whether on the Monon or elsewhere, everyone else should know that as well. It’s a simple concept.  Steve Foster 46032

Stopping goes against grain

AAA Way

Reading list

I read with interest your recent article in the Aug. 30 edition regarding “to stop, or not to stop” at various Monon Trail intersections. I agree that traffic should keep flowing and that cars should not be stopping for people on the Monon. At the same time, car versus person is no contest.  I do not personally use the trail, so I am not familiar with what, if any, signage is at these intersections. Without doubt, however, there should be signs at each intersection warning users of the trail to watch out for themselves as oncoming traffic will not be stopping; that oncoming traffic has the right of way. It should not simply be a yield sign, but a detailed explanation that leaves no doubt that users of the Monon must look out for their own safety.

We are proud to tell you Current Publishing is the main-stage sponsor for Civic Theatre’s 2011-12 season at The Tarkington. It is our hope that the state-of-the-art facility, which seats 500, will be sold out for every show. The season gets under way Friday, when the curtain goes up on The Drowsy Chaperone one night after the inaugural gala. The Civic now calls Carmel home, and we’re enthused about what it offers Central Indiana arts lovers. It’s important to note that under the leadership of Cheri Lynn Dick, Civic is entering its 97th season and continues to work to raise funds for the organization that has been, and continues to be, a vital part of the Central Indiana’s cultural landscape. Please do your part to help this treasure continue for (at least) another 97 years. To learn how, or to purchase tickets, please e-mail civic@civictheatre.org. Other shows on the schedule include Brian’s favorite, Amadeus; Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka; Lend Me a Tenor; and Steve’s favorite, Guys and Dolls. We view it all as can’t-miss theatre. ••• Speaking of proud, how about this: Lauren Burdick, who interned for us while a Carmel High School student, has graduated and now is an Ernie Pyle Scholar as a fresh-

Rotary’s role in creating the amphitheater VOLUNTEERS By Jeff Worrell Since January, ribbon cuttings and gala celebrations have taken place on a fairly regular basis, as each of the performance venues at The Center for the Performing Arts open its doors. The Palladium, the anchor and crown jewel of the complex was first to open, soon followed by the Studio Theater. Then the Tarkington Theater had its big to-do last month. All grand openings received extensive press coverage and audiences enjoyed exceptional performances by big-name celebrities. A great time was had by all and The Center for the Performing Arts is boasting record crowds in its first season. But wait, a fourth venue opened to the public this summer without much fanfare. There was no black-tie event and you cannot find any pictures of celebs pulling up curbside in limos. No, the Rotary Centennial Amphitheater is an outdoor performance area paid for solely with funds raised by the Rotary Club of Carmel. At the east end of the Center Green area a beautiful stage with grassy seating was dreamed about and is now a reality. No small feat though accomplished behind the scenes and without great hoopla, the Rotary Club of Carmel paid for the Amphitheater with a $100,000 donation. Please read the number again: $100,000 cash. Current Rotary Club President Rich Taylor presided over a simple ribbon cutting with

club members and guests in attendance. The completed project, some eight years in the making, commemorates the Rotary Club’s 100-year anniversary. In 2002, Club President Nancy Cooper first challenged the club to take on the project and raise $1,000 dollars for every year Rotary has been serving mankind through the eradication of Polio worldwide and local community service projects. The actual anniversary year for Rotary was 2005 and President Craig Sherman publicly announced Rotary Club of Carmel would build the amphitheater. Project committee chairman Jack Stafford kept the project going and both were on hand to cut the ribbon and turn over one of those big billboard size checks to Mayor Brainard on behalf of the citizens of Carmel. Without doors or walls, the Centennial Amphitheater is an appropriate gift to the community. You can enjoy a peaceful moment reading a book all by yourself practically anytime you want, or join neighbors and friends for a scheduled three-piece folk music concert. Although Rotary has not asked for it, many thanks are in order. Jeff Worrell is a local businessman. He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on cable channel 16.

September 11 remembrance ceremony

1,000 flags memorialize, honor members of armed forces By Kevin Kane kevin@youarecurrent.com A local business is inviting the public to join in remembering Sept. 11 in a unique way. Indianapolis-based Buchanan Group will create what it’s calling the “Field of Flags” on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks at the Oaklawn Memorial Gardens in Fishers. The event will include the placing of 1,000 flags to honor those who lost their lives in the attacks as well as to pay tribute to the men and women currently serving in the armed forces. “We have put up flags every year in the past since the attacks occurred, but this year we’re going to do a program, too,” said Maureen Lindley, who is coordinating the event for Buchanan Group. The program will begin at 8:30 a.m., and Lindley said it will follow a timeline that mirrors that of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. In addition to the 100 Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts’ placing the 1,000 flags by hand, the program

will include remarks from keynote speaker, Indiana’s Adjutant General, Major Martin Umbarger of the National Guard as well as Josh Bleill of the Indianapolis Colts. Bleill lost both of his legs to a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq in 2006. He now works in community relations for the Colts. The public is invited to the free event, but flags will be sold for $50 each. The “Field of Flags” will remain in place for about one week after Sept. 11, Lindley said. After that, those who purchased flags at the event will be able to take them home. There also will be a silent auction at the event, featuring items donated by more than 20 corporate sponsors and individuals. All profits, Lindley said, will be donated to the National Guard Relief Fund, which assists the families of deployed soldiers. “It is a family event,” Lindley said. “We want to encourage people to bring their families out.”

The skinny on salt

Current sits down with Hamilton County school officials to find out what has changed in the lunchroom By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com Gone are the days when a student could look forward to a lunch of a heaping plate of French fries and greasy pizza, says Andria Ray, director of nutrition and food services for Hamilton Southeastern school district. “What anybody thinks about is the old way,” Ray said. “Fatty meats, mashed potatoes and gravy with meatloaf… greasy pizza. Now in school food services, we’ve taken a lot of steps in reducing fats, using lean meats. We’ve taken out all fryers in our elementary schools. Fries are only available at the high school level, and only twice a week.” Today’s school lunchroom walls are lined with posters about portion sizes, varied diet and nutrition. The dessert table now holds fresh fruit and vegetable trays – and the dip is more likely to be hummus than ranch. The new cafeteria lineup “The biggest push was probably five years ago,” said Sue Dunn, who has been the food service coordinator for the Noblesville Schools District for 12 years. “All of our milk offerings are now skim or 1 percent. Eighty percent or more of our breads are whole grain or whole wheat, and that would include chicken nuggets and chicken patties. Pizzas have a whole grain crust.” Noblesville Schools, which will serve lunch to an estimated 6568 percent of its 9,500 students this year, added a dietician to its staff this year and has phased deep fryers almost entirely out of the district. “When I first started, frying was very common,” Dunn said. “Fries were a big, big item. We gradually took them off the line, and off the menus, and I think the kids are pretty used to it now.” The Carmel Clay Schools District has taken a similar, gradual approach to lunchroom changes, according to Amy Anderson, director of food services for CCS. “People are much more accepting of slow changes,” Anderson said. “You’re not going to take something and remove all of the flavor from it and expect them to eat it.” Catch-22 in the lunchroom According to Anderson, school food services have to strike a delicate balance between making food healthier and educating students about what it is they’re actually eating. “Our hamburgers have cherries in them, because it’s healthier,” Anderson said. “But do you tell kids that, and risk them not eating them anymore? You almost have to write one menu for the kids and another for the parents so they know what they’re actually eating.” And, according to Nick Verhoff, executive director of business and operations for Westfield Washington Schools, cost is always a factor. “I get asked by parents all the time, who say they could pack a lunch for cheaper than their students get at school,” Verhoff said. “Well, yes, you could, because you’re not paying labor, and benefits, and utilities. And that’s in addition to the food costs.” Lunch for an intermediate student in the WWS district is $2.50. At Carmel, it’s $2.25. Hamilton Southeastern charges $2.05 for K-6 students, and a K-6 lunch at Noblesville costs $1.75. But lunches packed by parents can often be a worse option, ac-

cording to Rachel Miller, a dietician for CCS. “I’ve seen students come in with lunches packed with a slice of pizza, a fruit pie from McDonald’s and a can of soda,” Miller said. HSE’s Ray said her district has ramped up efforts to educate students about food nutrition, and has seen positive results so far. “I think a lot of times kids don’t realize how their food has been modified to make it healthy,” Ray said. “But now, it’s too important for kids to understand how critical it is they eat healthy and the benefits to them.” The great soft drink debate With 17 percent of children in the U.S., roughly 12.5 million, classified as obese, some schools have received heavy criticism for vending machine and soft drink sales. Although all four major school districts in Hamilton County do have contracts with Coca-Cola, school officials across the board say the machines are turned off during the day, including lunch time, and some like Hamilton Southeastern have even gone so far as to remove non-soda products such as Powerade from lunch time offerings as well. “It’s too much sugar and electrolytes for students during lunch time,” said HSE’s Ray “I don’t see students doing workouts in the lunch room.” Hamilton Southeastern recently signed a new contract with Coca-Cola that would bring $130,000 to the district. Although the contract was eventually unanimously approved, board member Sylvia Shepler and others voiced concerns about continuing to provide soda access in the schools. “I have a philosophical problem with this,” Shepler said. “We’re making money off of our kids’ health.” Monies received from school soft drink contracts go toward supplementing athletic, support and building funding for districts, said Nick Verhoff, executive director of business and operations for Westfield Washington Schools. “It’s not the lifeblood of any program,” Verhoff said, “but obviously every bit helps.” While some states have banned soft drink sales in schools completely, California being the first in 2003, a 2008 study published in the September issue of the “Journal of the American Dietetic Association” questioned a conclusive link between school soft drink sales and childhood obesity. According to the study, authored by Meenakshi Fernandes, then a doctoral fellow at the RAND Corporation, students who attended schools without soft drink sales consumed only 4 percent fewer soft drinks than other students. “We need to take a more comprehensive look at environments around schools, what (students) are doing at home and after school,” Fernandes said in an interview with U.S. News and World Report. “Perhaps we can have a greater impact through interventions this way.” CCS’s Anderson agreed. “A child consumes five lunches a week with us,” she said. “The average kid eats three meals and a snack every day, so that’s 28 meals a week. That’s 18 percent of meals a week they’re eating with us.” “We can influence that 18 percent of what they eat,” Anderson said. “I cannot influence the other 82 percent.”

Proposed USDA guidelines for 2012 could have major impacts on school food. One of the biggest items in the USDA’s crosshairs? Sodium. We interact with sodium most commonly as table salt, which is used by food providers as a preservative and flavor enhancer, especially in frozen and canned foods. A USDA food study reported that the typical school lunch can contain anywhere from 1,000 – 1500 mg of sodium, or from 40 - 60 percent of a student’s daily recommended sodium intake of 2,300 mg. The proposed guidelines would look to decrease sodium levels below 800 mg for a school lunch, with further reductions built in gradually over a 10 year period. Excess sodium intake is linked to high blood pressure, a major factor in stroke, kidney and heart disease. In Hamilton County, school dieticians report proactive measures already underway, among them: no-salt seasonings, rinsing canned fruits and vegetables to remove excess salt, and removing salt shakers from the lunchroom altogether. It’s important to note that a healthy amount of natural sodium is critical to regulate blood pressure and volume, and for muscle and nerve function.

Thirty-eighth annual Greek Fest to be held next weekend By Kevin Kane kevin@youarecurrent.com The Indianapolis Greek Fest is the second largest annual community event in Carmel behind CarmelFest, but organizers are still working to get the word out to city residents. “Most of our attendees are from the north side of Indianapolis,” said Greek Fest President Dean Antonopoulos. The annual two-day festival will be held for the 38th time Sept. 9 and 10, but it has only been in Carmel for three years. The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Indianapolis, which puts on the festival, moved from 48th Street in Indianapolis to its new location near 106th Street and Shelbourne Road in 2008. Though the church and festival moved, many of its longtime attendees followed. Most of the roughly 16,000 people who attend each year reside in the capital city, but Antonopoulos said the church is trying to attract more people from its local community in Carmel. The event, he said, provides an opportunity for the public to learn about Byzantine architecture and the origins of Christianity through the orthodox faith.

Greek Fest isn’t only educational, though. Antonopoulos described Greek Fest as “a tremendous food and drink experience” with “terrific Greek music played by live bands.” Bands Kosta and The Wave will perform at the festival this year. New to Greek Fest this year are small menu changes – such as the addition of ice cream and beer from Indianapolis brewing company Sun King – and more noticeable ones like a craft area for children and free parking. Attendees can park for free this year at the Riley Farm at 106th Street and Towne Road, Antonopoulos said. From there, a shuttle service will take guests to the festival. This year’s changes also include an offer for free admission. Those who contribute to the church’s canned food drive by bringing in three canned food items between noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday will be admitted to the festival for free. More information on tickets and the festival is available at www.IndyGreekFest.org. “We’ve noticed a tremendous spike in attendance since our first year here in 2009,” Antonopoulos said. Now the church is hoping the number of Carmel residents attending the event continues to grow, too.

Harden Jackson is pleased to announce that Laura M. Taylor has joined the firm's Family Law Practice Group, and will be representing clients in divorce and family law matters, including appeals.

Carmel resident’s film to air on TV Celebrate the auto in the Arts District editorial@youarecurrent.com The Carmel Arts & Design District promises to stimulate your senses by celebrating the art and design of the automobile next weekend. The fourth annual IU Health North Hospital Carmel Artomobilia on Sept. 10 will combine the beauty of classic, vintage, exotic and rare car collections with artists inspired by automotive design. From historic Ford Model As to late model Lamborghinis, Artomobilia guests will celebrate decades of engineering and craftsmanship. This year’s featured marquee car celebrates the 100-year history of Chevrolet with a special spotlight on the iconic 1963 Corvette. In addition to one-of-a-kind cars and art, guests are invited to stroll the district and enjoy a variety of refreshments, music, restaurants and art galleries. Admission to the event is free and goes on from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, call 571-2787.

editorial@youarecurrent.com Carmel resident Bryant Scott is celebrating a major milestone for his film company. Scott is the president of Tyscot Film and Entertainment, and for the past month the company’s first film has been airing multiple times per week on Showtime. Next Friday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m., the 2010 movie, Blessed and Cursed, will be shown on The Movie Channel. “We’re excited that our first movie and this new endeavor has experienced this level of success,” Scott said. “It’s unheard of to have an independent studio to be picked up by several broadcasters, including Showtime.” Blessed and Cursed depicts the biblical struggle of Saul and David with a modern-day twist.  Deitrick Haddon plays Dwight Hawkins, an

aspiring and gifted gospel singer who suddenly goes from humble novice to overnight sensation when he is hired as the minister of music at one of the Detroit’s most popular churches. What starts out as a dream come true soon quickly becomes a nightmare as Dwight’s ambitions are thwarted but an unlikely source.

Sculpture for 136th Street roundabout approved editorial@youarecurrent.com Work could begin in less than a month on a new sculpture to be built in the roundabout at Range Line Road and 136th Street. The Carmel Redevelopment Commission July 27 approved the $80,000 piece of artwork that will be 12 feet tall by nine feet wide. The sculpture will be 15 feet tall from its base. Los Angeles-based sculptor Brad

Howe will create the sculpture, the name of which won’t be announced until an unveiling ceremony later this year. Howe has created public art for various municipalities around the country.

Some might not be apparent after the winter and spring cultivating. -www.almanac.com

DISPATCHES » AHA’s Heart Walk – The 2011 Indianapolis Heart Walk and 5K Run, the American Heart Association’s signature fundraising event, will be held Sept. 17 at Celebration Plaza at White River State Park. AHA anticipates more than 8,000 participants to raise money to help save lives from the country’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers: heart disease and stroke. Shepherd Insurance of Carmel is one of many companies participating in the event, raising more than $3,400 thus far with three teams totaling 50 participants. For more information about the event, visit www.indyheartwalk.org. » Stick to plain soap? - The main compounds in antibiotic wipes, creams and soaps -- triclosan and triclocarban -- have been added to other products in an attempt to halt the spread of microbes. But studies show that these antibiotic chemicals are no more likely than regular soap to prevent gastrointestinal or respiratory illness. In fact, for chronically sick patients, antibiotic soaps were actually associated with increases in the frequencies of fevers, runny noses and coughs. Also, in one Pakistani study, people who washed their hands with plain soap were able to reduce the incidence of childhood diarrhea by 53 percent. Those who

used antibiotic soap containing 1.2 percent triclocarban actually experienced slightly higher incidence of illness. -www.mercola.com » Weight loss myth –Many dieters believe eating several small meals a day is a guaranteed way to quash hunger. But scientists have not turned up substantial evidence to support this. In fact, a 2009 study with more than 10,000 subjects reported that betweenmeal nibblers were 69 percent more likely to pack on pounds over five years.

Breast implants like cake and candy COMMENTARY By Barry Eppley Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular and successful body contouring procedures in plastic surgery. While it may seem hard to make the association of breast enhancement with confections and desserts, they are more closely related than one would think. This is because of two recent technological advances in the type of breast implants that are available and how they are implanted at the time of surgery. One important, but often overlooked, aspect of the surgical implantation of breast devices is placing into the breast pocket. When only saline implants were available this was never a concern as they were inflated after they were placed. This means very small incisions could be used for their introduction that were not even on the breast. Rolled up like a burrito, a saline implant is inserted through a one-inch incision and then inflated to the desired size. However, the reintroduction of silicone breast implants in 2006 required larger incisions for the pre-filled inserts. Plastic surgeons will frequently push and cram the breast implant through a small incision to prevent larger scars; a technique that weakens the implant’s shell and leads to premature rupture. However, a new and improved delivery method has had a positive impact. The new method uses a funnel, a tool that looks exactly like one used to decorate a cake.

The breast implant is now easily propelled into the implant pocket, all without ever touching the implant or squeezing it too hard in one place. Silicone gel is a better implant option than saline without risks for spontaneous deflations like a saline implant can (and eventually will). Although the health concerns from the early 1990s with have been dispelled, the concern about rupture and what happens to the material persist. Concerns lead to the development of advanced silicone materials that hold together more like a solid, resulting in what is known as the “gummy bear breast implant.” The “gummy bear breast implant” is more than just a cute nickname. It is a reflection how the silicone filling looks and feels, soft and spongy. Just like those cute little red, green and yellow bears, you can push, pull and even cut the material without losing its shape. The physical similarity between the new implant and the candy are striking. Breast augmentation continues to get better and more safe as the materials and techniques to deliver them improve. This gives women more options to choose what they feel best fits their bodies. Dr. Eppley is an Indianapolis board-certified plastic surgeon. Comments can be sent to info@ eppleyplasticsurgery.com

Minor kitchen remodel: ‘New cosmetic features make a big difference’ COMMENTARY By Larry Greene ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home is located in the Village of Mount Carmel neighborhood in Carmel was built in 1997.The kitchen was original and had been last decorated in the late 1990s. MOTIVATION TO REMODEL: The primary motivation for the remodel was to update.The kitchen hadn’t been updated since it was built. The homeowners had been thinking about remodeling their kitchen for a couple of years and finally decided to get serious. The old kitchen had white appliances, white accent hardware on cabinets and the original laminate countertops. NEW COSMETIC FEATURES: The homeowner loves the overall new look and said, “the whole look of the kitchen is more appealing to the eye. The look is very warm and inviting. It’s a joy to be in the kitchen.” CABINET MODIFICATIONS: A trim carpenter was able to make several changes to the cabinets including installing filler pieces to hide gaps near the appliances, adding new 1/8” rippled glass panels and adding new oak doors with arched frames. The homeowner said, “I love the glass in the cabinets, it gives them an extra

Before special look.” GRANITE & TILE BACKSPLASH: The new natural-stone tile backsplash includes 2”x4” Torreon Limestone installed in a staggered pattern with pencil molding and antique white grout. She updated her countertops with 3cm Delicatus granite with a demi bull nose edge. The new tops and backsplash are a more earthy tone and go well with the existing cabinets. The homeowner commented, “I love my new pull down faucet.” The new sink is a Bianco 32”x19” undermount sink in biscuit color while the faucet is a Moen Arbor model in oil rubbed bronze. NEW FINISH COLOR: The homeowner added, “The oil rubbed bronze accessories re-

After ally pull the entire kitchen look together. The kitchen really has a welcoming look and feel. I actually want to spend time there.” The family had a big party recently and is looking forward to having people over to show off their newlyremodeled kitchen.

DISPATCHES » Does bulk really save? – According to research from Harvard Business School, paying a fee to shop leads people to think they are saving money even when they aren’t. The researchers acknowledge that membership stores do often sell products at a discount. But they suggest that shoppers are likely to buy more than they would otherwise when shopping at stores that charge a membership fee because they believe they are saving money. In some cases, the authors point out, products may be no cheaper than at a local discount store, where you can shop for free. -www.usnews.com » Stocking up on bulbs – Starting in January, the traditional 100-watt incandescent bulbs will become a hot commodity. New federal efficiency standards, passed as part of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, will make the production of these bulbs illegal then, followed by 75-, 60- and 40-watt bulbs in later years. As the new standards gain publicity, consumers and designers are stocking up on these bulbs. The new, more energy-efficient alternatives are considered by many to cast a harsh, overly bright glow or too weak of a light. -www.msnbc.com

» Fewer teens had jobs – Last summer, the percentage of Americans age 16 to 24 with a summer job dropped to 48.9 percent.

The number of closed sales in Hamilton County increased by 7.7 percent during May to July when compared to the same months in 2010. Additionally, closed sales increased 32 percent in the one-month comparison within the county. » RAI worth a look? - Reynolds American (RAI), a dividend stock with a 6.1 percent yield, is a holding company for the nation’s second-largest cigarette maker.

Positive versus traditional training methods COMMENTARY By John Mikesell How we know that training with lots of positive reinforcement-and without force or physical punishment –is best. What’s the difference? Today, in many areas of the country a dog is at least as likely to be enrolled in a class with a trainer who uses positive methods as one who still employs old fashioned choke chain or prong- collar coercion. As more dog owners and dog trainers see the light, clickers, treat bags, and positive reinforcement replace metal collars, shocks, and dominance theory. Many trainers who still fall back on compulsion tools will at the least start dog-friendlier methods, resorting to force and intimidation only when positive traning seems not to work for them. Dogs and humans alike are delighted to discover a kinder, gentler method that still gets results. Trainers, behaviorists, and dog owners are re-

Continue to click and treat each sit. After another half- dozen repetitions, say “Sit” without moving your hand to your chest, and click! /treat when he sits. Continue until he’ll sit without any hand movements. Karma, and Izzy before would sit without treats after the training, however it is important to continue to give praise to your dog. What you can do Renew your commitment to positive training with your dog, if necessary, as well as positive relationships with others who share your life. Advocate for positive training with those who may not be as aware of the benefits of positive reinforcement.

alizing that this is more than just a philosophical difference, or a conflict between an ethics that says we should be nice to animals versus a more utilitarian approach to training. While both methods can produce well-trained dogs, the end result is also significantly different. With positive training, the goal is to develop a dog that thinks and works cooperatively with his human part of a team, rather than a dog who simply obeys commands. An Example Sit+ Positive method Show your dog a yummy treat, and move it slowly over his head. Most dogs will sit (sooner or later) so they can continue to watch the treat; just wait. When your dog does sit, “mark” the desired behavior with the click! Of a clicker (or say a word such as “yes!” in a cheerful voice) and feed him the treat. Repeat this about six to 10 times, with a click! And treat each time he sits. When you know he’ll sit easily for the treat

Humane Society to open satellite center today By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com The Humane Society for Hamilton County is opening a new, satellite adoption center located at Hamilton Town Center Mall today. The grand opening of the center will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature shelter dogs and cats for adoption and raffle prizes from Three Dog Bakery. KJ from WZPL’s Smiley Morning Show will be on-site from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. “For anyone who has visited the shelter in the last few months, they know how full and overwhelmed we have been with a non-stop flow of animal intakes,” said HSHC Executive Director Rebecca Stevens. “That is why this satellite location is such a blessing to us in that we believe it will create many more adoption opportunities for our animals.” Stevens said the new adoption center will initially be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays with hopes of ramping up to Saturdays and Sundays in time for the holidays. The center will be fully equipped to do on-site adoptions and welcomes visitors to bring their dogs by to sniff and mingle with potential new siblings. A minimum of 10 dogs and cats will be featured each Saturday for adoption but will head back to the shelter at the end of each day if homes are not found. “We are incredibly grateful for the support we’ve received from Hamilton Town Center’s management team and Simon for making it possible for even more animals to find the for-

Find Us on Facebook Bigger is Better Try these simple steps to help achieve the voluminous, bombshell hair that can now be found on magazine covers and all along the red carpet: To begin, towel dry your hair and mist a leave-in conditioner (such as Biominoil Leave In Treatment) and a volumizer (try Brocato’s Volumizing Tonic). Then begin blow drying your roots while pulling them away from your scalp. When your hair is completely dry, wrap 1-inch sections in Velcro rollers. Once your hair is set, blow dry with a diffuser for another 10 minutes on the hot setting, then 10 minutes on the cool setting. Alternatively, you could use large hot rollers or a curling iron once your hair is completely dry.

After removing the rollers, combine a drop of shine serum (like Brocato’s Shine Drops) and a light hold gel (Salon 01 brand Flex Hold Gel) in the palms of your hands. Run your hands throughout your hair and move your voluminous locks into place. For added boost, gently tease your roots around the crown of your head. Finish off the process with a blast of moveable hold hairspray to keep your ‘do in place. Looking for more hairstyling tips? Check out our blog at www.salon01.com/blog/.

Time to call a pro COMMENTARY By Vicky Earley You want a certain look and assurance the investment will be a wise one. You know that this is not your area of expertise. This is the time to call in the services of an interior designer or decorator. If you have not used a designer before, it can be intimidating. The fear and mystery can be enough to send a homeowner on a solo spiral down the interior design hill. To make matters even more challenging, the best interior decorators are one part artist, one part business mind, and one part translator. In other words, it is not as easy in looking in the telephone book under “t” for “talented decorators.” While the most obvious trait to consider is artistic ability and a sense of style, the most important element is personality. A close bond develops during the design process so, the individual who is about to step into your home has to mesh with you. Just as important, this must be a person who asks questions and listens to the answers. A good decorator should constantly probe to solicit a vision for the final product. If pertinent questions are not being posed, it is a sign that you are not the focus. Before committing to a designer, ask yourself the following: Do I feel comfortable with this person? Remember, you will be spending time with this

www.youarecurrent.com

person so a level of rapport is essential. Does this person seem interested in my wishes? Avoid the cookie cutter decorator who does the same look over and over for ease. Is he or she clear about the costs involved? There should be a clear understanding of how fees will be charged in advance. Hopefully, this is the start of a long-term relationship with someone who will have access to personal parts of your life so these factors are imperative. Clients have to take the initiative and let the designer know how involved they want to be. Unless the designer selected is totally devoid of talent, the benefits will outweigh the cost. When interviewing a potential candidate for a project, expect to be quoted an hourly rate of $65 and up. In addition, some decorators will quote a flat fee based on a needs analysis. The ideal situation is to look for a decorator who is flexible to the needs of a client. Working with a decorator opens up sources generally closed to the public. Also, designers have a resource list of talented labor they can readily tap into as well as the ability to negotiate on behalf of a client. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel. If you have an interior design question, please contact artichokedesigns@aol.com.

The hour I first believed

Spirituality By Bob Walters T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear. And Grace, my fears relieved. How precious did that Grace appear The hour I first believed. – 2nd stanza, “Amazing Grace” “The hour I first believed” was 10 years ago this Labor Day weekend. Specifically it was Sept. 2, 2001, sitting in a Sunday church service for basically the first time in 30 years. Dave Faust, who later baptized me, and Russ Blowers, who taught me until his death in late 2007, were sharing the East 91st Street Christian Church pulpit that day, with Russ talking gently about Jesus, faith, hope and love. It was Russ’s 50th anniversary with his beloved congregation. Dave, a gifted preacher, moved on within a year to be a college president, where he continues to raise ensuing generations of Christian ministers at Cincinnati Christian University. I sat in the back row with mystifying tears rolling down my cheeks; tears that made no earthly sense, but tears that welled up from deep in my heart with the full cooperation of my mind. Before that, I didn’t know what I believed. Today “belief” doesn’t adequately cover the spiritual and intellectual enormity of a life in Christ. It – Christian life – is not what I expected. It’s not the limiting, rules-following, holier-thanthou, faith-groveling, meek, mind-numbing existence centered on a guilt fetish that I had

imagined. The Christian life is an inexplicable hybrid of empowerment and humility; of intellect and emotion; of binding love, and freedom to choose what binds us; of fear, and freedom from it. It is comfort in hard times, courage in harder times, and the excitement of knowing that every day is new when our steps point to Jesus Christ. I can’t explain my conversion. Jesus didn’t zap me where I sat. Nobody hit me over the head with a Bible. The Holy Spirit didn’t send me into convulsions and God didn’t rend a single curtain. I just knew that whatever awakened within deserved and required my full attention. That it was right. That it was important. That it was true. And that it was good. Not just any good, but God’s Good. The real deal. Humanity is bigger, life is better and eternity abounds when they are boldly defined in Christ. I am thankful beyond words for God’s faithfulness, the Holy Spirit’s presence, and the amazing grace of Jesus Christ. I truly needed it – we all do – and am happy to share it. Jesus is Lord. Amen.

Course of action LAUGHS By Dick Wolfsie The brochure was suspiciously placed on top of the mail pile that Mary Ellen left on my desk. It was the annual Oasis catalog, full of courses seniors can take to enrich their lives. This was Mary Ellen’s subtle hint that golf, racquetball and bike riding were not enough to fill up my day and that without a couple of sessions of chair Pilates, water aerobics, or Zumba (whatever that is), I was just going to wither away. Many of these classes are held at a Flanner and Buchanan funeral home, which is just the cheeriest idea ever. You know what they say: location, location, location. The introductory notes to the various selections explain these seminars are for people 50 years old or better. I would have thought that “better” meant 40, or maybe even 35, which are far superior in my opinion, to being 50. Apparently, they think I’m better than ever at 64. By the way, I think 50 is too young to be considered a senior. If you can’t remember the moon landing, you shouldn’t be getting a discount at the optometrist. A few of the courses are worth a mention, like Till the End of Time, which is “a look at previous end-of-the-world predictions that were wrong.” There was no class listing for doomsday prophecies that were right. Also offered is a course on how to get your car started in the winter. The instructor’s name is Ben Stallings. Page 18, if you don’t believe me. This fall, you can take Protecting Your Assets, which is as close to a double entendre as the Oasis people are going to get. You might want to enroll in: Introduction to Computers. The description says “it will teach seniors how to cut, copy and paste.” Last year half the class showed

up with carbon paper, scissors and Elmer’s glue. Introduction to the Mouse seems less than rigorous. Not to brag, but the first time I ever had a mouse in my hand, everything just seemed to click. Another favorite is the course on line dancing. Do you really need lessons for that? Mary Ellen wants me to take it. She said at the last two weddings we attended, I got totally out of line. As I was making my selections, I thought about two additional programs they should offer, and I would like to teach them: NOW WHERE DID I PUT MY… This is a memory course to help you find your remote phone in the fridge, your keys in the dishwasher or your wallet in one of your shoes. Class discussion will include: How did it get there? Didn’t I look there three times? And: They have to be somewhere in house; no one loses a pair of pajamas. COMPLAINING: AN ART, NOT A SCIENCE How to avoid being labeled grouchy and unreasonable and still get what you want in life. Included are the finer points of sending a perfectly good restaurant meal back to the kitchen after you’ve eaten half of it; how to nitpick spots at Mike’s Carwash so they’ll run your Camry through the tunnel again; and, returning something to Walmart that you bought at Meijer. So am I going to take a course? Indeed, I am. On October 5 at the Benton House. I’ve enrolled in It’s Typewriter Time. This is a course

Apparently, they think I’m better than ever at 64.

Missing: Dessert curls LAUGHS By Mike Redmond I am a great admirer of Warren Buffett, and not just because he’s rich as Croesus and thinks he ought to pay more taxes (although I don’t notice him writing a huge check to the Treasury Department and saying, “Keep the change.”). No, I admire Warren Buffett because Warren Buffett founded Berkshire Hathaway, and Berkshire Hathaway owns Dairy Queen. Dairy Queen has been much on my mind lately for a few sort-of-but-notreally-connected reasons. The first reason is I stopped at the Dairy Queen closest to my house the other day and got a Dilly Bar that was way below the standard. The second is I’ve been goofing around on a Facebook page for people from LaGrange County, and the Dairy Queen of our collective kidhood figures large in some of the conversation. And third, I’ve always wanted to mention the Dairy Queen I like best, near the Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis, which is one of those great old walk-up DQs. That’s what the LaGrange DQ was when I first became aware of it. You stood on the sidewalk, ordered your cone and wandered over to the post office steps to sit and enjoy it. This is such a terrific memory for me that I still think the walk-up Dairy Queen is vastly superior to the kind with tables and a burger grill. Talk of the Dairy Queen in LaGrange invariably turned to “What was your favorite DQ treat?” My first answer was Ellie Woodworth, one of four Woodworth sisters to work there. Hubba hubba. My second was the dipped cone. Also hubba hubba. Our DQ was famous for the tight ship run by its owner, Mrs. Lemings – a dear woman who insisted on doing things the right way. For example, before every shift employees had to line

up and present their hands to Mrs. Lemings for inspection, and more than one got sent to the washroom for a do-over. Hospitals had nothing on Mrs. Lemings’ DQ for cleanliness. Doing things the right way gets me to Ellie’s older sister, Barb. Now, as we all know, the signature of the DQ frozen treat is the curl on top. Without that, it’s just ice cream. Well, Barb was the best DQ curl maker in the Seventh Federal Reserve District. No matter what she was making, from a baby cone to a banana split, the curls were perfect every time. For this reason, Barb was appointed the official Dilly Bar maker for the LaGrange DQ. You could always count on a Barb Woodworth Dilly Bar to have that perfect curl on the front side. Of course, a Dilly Bar fan then had to make a decision: Do I start eating from the top, as is customary with an EskimoPie style ice cream treat on a stick, or do I first bite off the curl? For me, it was a no-brainer. That curl was perfect and therefore irresistible. Besides, I heard once of a kid who bit off the curl and sucked out all the ice cream, leaving a perfect chocolate shell behind. It seemed like something I might like to do someday. Which gets me to my substandard Dilly Bar other day. It had no curl. It was just a flat disc. Just ice cream. Where’s Barb Woodworth when you need her? Mrs. Lemings would not have let than one out of the shop. I’d better write Warren Buffett. I think the boss should know about this. And pay a reward.

We all know, the signature of the DQ frozen treat is the curl on top. Without that, it’s just ice cream.
