It is our position that all Hamilton County schools should pursue participation in an online pilot tutoring program offered by the Indiana Department of Education. Based on best cognitive instructional practices research, Apangea Math, provides “one-student-to-one teacher” individualized instruction using “tutoring technology and live, online certified teachers”. Apangea employs flexible teaching techniques with an emphasis on problem solving skills for middle school and high school students. Participating students receive instructional feedback with access to live teachers in conjunction with continuous assessment and reporting. All Indiana schools were invited to participate in the program in late June. Participation was based on a first come, first serve basis, including Fishers, Hamilton Heights, and Hamilton Southeastern school districts. Students, struggling to maintain proficient math skills, could benefit from the extra support tutoring provides. Apangea promises to catch those students who might, otherwise, “fall through the cracks” of our educational system and would be well worth the implementation.
It is our position that the recent technology additions to airport security, while inconvenient, are necessary. Many have complained about how the new full-body scanners may reveal a bit more than many believe to be modest. Likewise, we are attentive to the sensitivity required to administer such a scan, but we believe it is appropriate when the alternative inadequate precautions to protect people are considered. Even as our nation has just now remembered the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, we have all adjusted our lives to accommodate a new reality. Without these and other developing technologies, would other attacks have been possible? Airport security experts are working hard to create new safety measures designed to stymie the different avenues of terrorist attack. While we understand that many of us are sensitive about our bodies, we believe that this is one case where enhanced security justifies the price. Airport employees must take extra care to act as professionals focused on the task at hand, and sophomoric or lurid behavior must be severely punished. But most of all, we must all undertake to cooperate ensuring the safest and enjoyable travel experience for all.

From the backshop Painful, but county leaders did it correctly We are compelled to congratulate the Hamilton County Council and the Hamilton County Commissioners for a tough but necessary decision to shave part of $1.7 million from the 2011 budget by planning to furlough 20 employees and leave 10 vacant positions unfilled. Nobody likes to see folks out of work, but the realities are what they are. In a bold move, government has responded to tough (some may call them sickening) economic conditions the way the private sector does. Sad but true, a balanced budget hangs in the balance. While we are impressed by the county officials’ move to slash $6.2 million from next year’s budget, we wonder whether it was fully necessary to draw from a $1 million special sheriff’s fund to help achieve the goal. We anticipate Maj. Mark Bowen will win election Nov. 2, and because of who and what he is, we are confident the CEO nature of his being will lead him, if indeed elected, to patch where necessary in order to maintain order and public safety; it is our position that Bowen will take what Doug Carter has improved and only improve it more – even while being somewhat financially shackled. In the end, such a massive overall reduction might not have been neces-

COMMENTARY By Terry Anker In one of the lesser moments of my week, my computer forgot my calendar from 1996 through mid-2009. Like many others, the nature of my business makes the maintenance of records like email and calendar entries important, and this was a crisis. My IT expert got a call on Sunday. After hours of effort came the verdict that the files were not to be found. Monday morning at the office, the forensic IT pros descended, scanning servers, back-ups and laptops seeking the elusive data. Errors were found and hopes elevated only to be dashed over and again. But isn’t it conventional wisdom that files are never truly deleted? I recall stories of nefarious and otherwise disreputable bad guys brought to justice because of a failed “delete.” Couldn’t we find my calendar that way? As hours turned into days, an attentive associate of mine, who’d inherited my former laptop, overheard the crisis and through a little forensic

Council members disagree on CRC’s financial outlook By Kevin Kane Current in Carmel A presentation was made to the City Council last week regarding the Carmel Redevelopment Commission’s ability to repay its debt, but two council members have differing opinions about the situation. After first reporting on the CRC’s finances in June, financial consultant Umbaugh and Associates presented updated information to the council last Monday and stated that, after an additional $10 million loan was added since the initial report, the CRC still should be able to repay all of its debts, with interest, without using residential property taxes. The report predicts the CRC will cover its obligations using tax increment financing (TIF) revenue but will have as little as three percent remaining. City Council President Rick Sharp, however, said this slim margin can only be maintained if all future developments are completed as planned, interest rates are not raised significantly and if $3.5 million of borrowed money is kept in the bank and not used for other projects. If TIF revenue, backed up by county option income tax money, cannot pay back the $80 million bond for the under-construction Center for the Performing Arts, the terms of the bond
require that a one-time residential property tax be levied every year as needed to pay the balance. Sharp said he’s concerned Carmel residents could be facing this tax as a result of what he called “mind boggling” financial management by the CRC. “Last night it became clear that the Redevelopment Commission is flirting with financial disaster,” Sharp said Tuesday. City Councilman and CRC President Ron Carter said Sharp’s remarks are completely motivated by politics. He added that, by controlling the gavel, Sharp was able to control which information was and was not presented at last week’s meeting. Carter said that, as a result, Umbaugh’s representatives were not able to show “the whole picture.” “It lacked the clarity that would have been helpful for the citizens of Carmel,” he said. Asked if he agreed that residential taxpayers were at risk of repaying the CRC’s debts, Carter said “absolutely not” and claimed Sharp, Councilwoman Luci Snyder and Councilman John Accetturo had “found” a problem that doesn’t exist. “I think we have a group of council members who like to start fires so they can be seen by the community as people who rush to put them out,” Carter said.

Losing mommy cool reason for concern COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson I almost called my son an a-hole to his face last night, in front of all of his siblings and one friend. That’s how frustrated I was with my kids in general, and particularly the said 11 year old a-hole. I caught myself and used butthole instead, but in my mind, he was experiencing a swear word smack down. And though he thoroughly deserved it, I felt terrible once I had located my inner calm. How could I have handled the situation differently? Why had I snapped over something that usually just sends me slightly over the edge? What kind of mother am I? My parenting analysis yielded several answers. One was that I might not be handling the stress of working full-time as well as I’d thought. Between the back to school rush and unpacking boxes from the move, I’ve been stretched like Saran Wrap over a bowl full of chaos that simply
player in the house. I had no patience for brother vs. sister warfare. So yes, I snapped. What to do? I think I’ve taken the first step to being a better mother by simply recognizing my weak areas. I’m a full-time working mom now and I’m going to have to cut myself and my kids some slack. Also, when Doo is gone, I need to make a conscious effort to reign in my perfectionist tendencies and allow the kids to work things out for themselves. Finally, if it’s late and I’m getting tired, I just need to go to bed. Even if my son was acting like an a-hole, I shouldn’t get that close to calling him one. Peace out.

is too big to be covered with one sheet. Is it any wonder that I ripped? The second possible reason that I totally lost my cool was that my husband is out of town, and has been more than usual since the start of August. So instead of being able to bail out and leave the parenting to him, I’ve had to handle more than my fair share of soccer runs, bedtimes, homework help, and discipline issues. I’ve said this before, if Doo ever dies on me, this family will be in deep, well, doo-doo. Lastly, I’ve concluded that the biggest determining factor in the verbal lashing I handed out was the fact that it was nighttime. I am a morning person to the first degree. And as bedtime approaches, most of my good Mommy instincts check out. The controversial a-hole incident occurred at approximately 9:15 p.m. I’d been awake and working hard for 16 hours straight, was trying to mediate a dispute over who could use the television with the Xbox and only DVD

Original phase of Keystone construction ending, further improvements to come By Lauren Burdick Current in Carmel For City Engineer Michael McBride, the Sept. 18 opening of the Carmel Drive and Keystone Parkway was one of the final steps in the Keystone Parkway Project. This ribbon-cutting, was not the complete end to the project. “It is the end of the original project, not the end of the city’s vision for the ultimate improvements to Keystone Parkway,” McBride said. Although the Keystone interchanges at both Carmel Drive and 116th Street are currently open, construction will continue on both areas as the Keystone Parkway Project nears completion. “Obviously the prime goal with a road that carries this kind of traffic volumes is getting it back up and running,” McBride said. According to McBride, the contractor will be working interchangeably on both 116th and Carmel Drive through Nov. 1. Once improvements are finalized on 116th Street and Carmel Drive, the initial phase of the Keystone Parkway Project will end, and McBride hopes to then turn the city’s attention to the intersection of 96th and Keystone Parkway, something he said hinges upon both I-465 construction and cooperation of multiple cities. “Over the past year, the state has been2:23 im- PM FluShot_Ad2.ai 1 9/7/10
proving the north side of I-465, and next year they will be reconstructing the ramps at I-465 and Keystone,” McBride said. This construction, according to McBride, will include interim improvements to the signal at 96th Street and Keystone Parkway. In addition to the I-465 construction, the intersection at 96th Street and Keystone sits on a jurisdictional boundary between Carmel and Indianapolis, as well as the Indiana Department of Transportation, which controls the south leg of 96th and Keystone. These two items, plus the need for funding, will dictate the timing of any construction at 96th Street. Additionally, the traffic signal at 98th Street and Keystone Parkway will remain intact until construction begins on 96th and Keystone. Although McBride said he understands the hassle the Keystone Parkway Project has put on Carmel’s citizens, the roadways are now much safer and conducive to large amounts of traffic. “We will definitely see a reduction in accidents; the roadway will be much more safe than before. The traffic on Keystone never conflicts with traffic on the cross streets,” McBride said. “The roundabouts offer an 80 percent decrease in injury accidents compared with traffic signals.”

Making music change lives Carmel Symphony Orchestra celebrates 35th season, move to Palladium By Margaret Sutherlin Current in Carmel For 35 years, the Carmel Symphony Orchestra (CSO) has been making music all over Hamilton County, and after a decade of planning, are ready to make their move to their new home at the Center for the Performing Arts. “For years we were gypsies and beggars,” said CSO Artistic Director David Bowden. “We have had no real home of our own and now we get to move into a place that will really let us serve the community.” Though the move doesn’t officially occur until early 2011, the 35th season is planned and the musicians are ready to perform, starting next week. Intense practice, careful musical selections and unique collaborations always are a part the orchestra’s programs, said Bowden, but this year’s season promises to be something special and he is confident his orchestra will perform beyond anything they’ve done before. “We can’t wait to hear and perform, and for the audience to experience it,” said President of the CSO Alan Davis. “It’s been ten years we’ve been looking forward to making the music in a new space. We can’t wait and it will be just an amazing season.” Getting Ready One of the challenges for the CSO this season is to make sure their playing is as perfect as the acoustics in their new performance space. “I wanted to be certain we were playing at the higher level of excellence,” said Bowden. “We have been getting in good shape for the performance so the quality and artistry of playing is really there. We have planned these pieces earlier on in our repertoire, so we come back to them, we can perform them really well.” Selecting unique collaborations and rising stars in the classical world have always been strengths of the CSO according to Bowden, and this year promises to be no different. World renowned pianist Di Wu will perform with the orchestra in February, collaboration between Civic Theater and the orchestra will bring to life the stories from Ellis Island at the Dream of America concert. Artist in residence for the past three years, Cameron Carpenter is the kick off performance of the season. Carpenter, an organist, will perform several classical pieces, along with a newly created review of Cole Porter songs. “The administrators’ (Alan Davis and David Bowden) artistic talents greatly exceed their positions. Being with the CSO is great fun for me. I get to experiment and try things that more formal conducts wouldn’t Davis let me,” Carpenter said. “It’s such a collaborative process when I get there and it’s really a spontaneous creative process.” Making music for Carmel While the new space is important for the orchestra, the CSO is as committed to its foundations and unique values. One of the most important aspects of the orchestra is that it is made up of professional and volunteer musicians, making a different connection between musicians.

“There is a lot of freedom and possibility in the CSO,” said Carpenter. “Everyone wants to be there and seems more friendly and personal. It’s more like a family than a club, like professional orchestras can feel.” Programs that emphasize a variety of styles and composers to appeal to each audience member will continue and the CSO’s commitment to music education in schools and at concerts, and the ongoing open invitation for families will be just as important in the new space as the old. “We are going stay family friendly,” said Bowden. “We want to persuade children that they can play theses instruments and show them the power of great music. My musical motto is that ‘music changes lives’ and I don’t think any child should ever be denied the opportunity to make music.” As Carmel’s homegrown orchestra continues to stick by its

Doing a good turn daily By Lauren Burdick Current in Carmel Through Oct. 4, Brownie Troop 1300 from Towne Meadow Elementary School will collect both donations and supplies for the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana. The project, which is organized by the second graders in Troop 1300, is the first of what will be many years of service for the girls, according to troop leader Lisa Ellis. “We can do as many (service projects) as we want throughout the year. Service projects are something the girls will do every single year as long as they’re Girl Scouts,” Ellis said. Ellis said that while the current project may seem overwhelming for second graders, she sees the benefits of learning about community service firsthand. “I wanted our first one to be really big so they can see how they can help people in a really big way.” According to the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana website, the facility cares for families of sick and injured children of central Indiana, giving them basic supplies and a place to stay for $10 per night. This charity, from Ellis’s point of view, gives the girls in Troop 1300 a taste of what volunteering can accomplish for the community. “It’s important for them to see just how important volunteering is and to see that they can make a difference in someone’s life. Hopefully those are core values that stick with them,”
she said. The members of Troop 1300 created a cover letter asking for corporate donations and have placed a donation box in the lobby at Towne Meadow Elementary School. All checks should be made out to the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana. Items to donate on the Ronald McDonald House’s website wish list include food, cleaning supplies and toiletries. Questions regarding donations are to be diverted to Ellis at email@example.com.

Road to college has too many speed bumps COMMENTARY By Lauren Burdick College. Call it omnipresent, ubiquitous, or all-pervading, for high school seniors like me, it is the only thing on our minds. Upon meeting anyone, absolutely anyone, the first words out of their mouths are undoubtedly, “Where are you going to school? What are you studying? Are you going to grad school? In-state or out-of-state?” While my classmates and I might know the answers to all of these things and then some, it is the applications that are considerably more stressful. With the Common Application, regular applications, letters of recommendations, transcripts and essays, the collegiate experience begins more as a tangled web of forms and deadlines, rather than a smooth transition from high school to university. Mountains of paperwork, on top of requisite senior year duties and extracurricular activities, can worsen indecision and procrastination in teens like myself. For me, it is a lot easier to let the stress fester than tackle it head-on. While some may argue that the Common Application alleviates some of this confusion, it is the universities themselves that need to become
more streamlined. Most general applications are fairly mundane, but it is the “extras,” the letters of recommendation, essays, and resumes, that require the most time and pain-staking attention to detail. If colleges and universities were to come together and establish a set of materials needed for all applications, high school seniors might spend fewer nights awake, as deadlines creep up on them. It is the times when I find crying to be an easier solution to my collegiate pain than actual work that I remind myself of the ultimate goal: in less than a year, I will be gone. It may be to Bloomington, Greencastle or somewhere far away from here. Regardless, it is the light at the end of the tunnel for me and my classmates. Now, if we could only eliminate the speed bumps and road blocks from that tunnel, then we could really enjoy the beginning of the collegiate experience.

Carmel celebrates first Rotarians Service Day COMMENTARY By Jeff Worrell What the governor wants, the governor gets, at least when it comes to service from hard working Rotarians. This is the first year that Governor Daniels has proclaimed a Rotarians Service Day, for Oct. 2. Probably no group of people has any busier lives or is more excited about the upcoming service day than members of the Rotarians in Carmel. The Rotary Club of Carmel has stepped up in a big way making a large time and resource commitment to several groups in our area. Working to make sure the governor sees plenty of community service on Rotarians Service Day is Richard Carriger and Sue Westermeier of the Carmel chapter. They hope to get their share of service from 7,700 statewide Rotarians working on projects to benefit local nonprofit organizations. Carmel Rotarians will help out four local charities all day long on Oct. 2. Painting, fixing, cleaning and repairing at Chaucie’s Place, Hamilton County Habitat for Humanity, O’Connor House and Carmel Dad’s Club. Each Rotarian will get dirty, tired and a little sore. But, the members of this organization thrive on the mess and hard work, because of the little lift in their spirit at the end of the job. And, when the sun sets, the tools are put away, and it appears to be time to head home, another opportunity opens up, which you

too are invited. A fundraiser at Herb and Sue Miller’s Carmel Ranch, Oktoberfest, designed to raise additional funds for Chaucie’s Place. Carmel Rotary President Ranjit Puthran said, “I am amazed by all of the work put into this effort so far and not one hammer has yet been raised. Knowing our members as I do, I am positive Oct. 2 is going to make a big difference in the lives of many people in our community.” President Elect Taylor went on to say, “I hope members of the community will join us at Oktoberfest as we celebrate the hard work of the day and support our non-profit groups in Carmel.” Rotarians will do the work and you can join the party. Sounds like a deal everyone should like. Jeff Worrell is a local business owner. He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on cable channel 16. Contact him at email@example.com

In review: The apostrophe GRAMMAR LESSON By Brandie Bohney I get regular e-mails about apostrophe use. Those letters flood my inbox for good reason: I could fill a year’s worth of column space with apostrophe related advice. For today, though, I’ll revisit just three issues: your versus you’re, its versus it’s, and apostrophes and plurality. Your and you’re In this case and the next one, the difference between the two words is one of possession and contraction. Your is a possessive pronoun, meaning that it shows that you own or possess something: your shoes, your mechanic, your cumquats. You’re, on the other hand, is a contraction for you are: you’re silly, you’re lost, you’re a genius. Its and it’s Again, its is a possessive pronoun. Imagine that it refers to a llama: its coat, its halter, its owner. It’s is a contraction for it is or it has. Going back to the same llama: it’s friendly, it’s smelly, it’s had enough. Possessive pronouns never have apostrophes.
Never ever. Think about possessive pronouns: his, her, hers, their, theirs, my, your, yours, its, our, ours, whose. Apostrophes? Nope. None. Contractions always have apostrophes. Always. The apostrophe is the indication that the writer is acknowledging the omission of characters and/or spaces. End of story. Apostrophes with plurals The “Cliff Notes” of this particular apostrophe problem is that if there is no possession to be shown in your plural, leave the apostrophe out. Just because you end a word in s doesn’t mean you need an apostrophe to accompany that s. I don’t want deep fried oreo’s, fresh tomato’s, or spicy salsa’s unless you’re telling me about the deep fried oreo’s fat, the fresh tomato’s firmness, or the spicy salsa’s jalapeno content. The exception to this rule is lowercase abbreviations. Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher. If you have a grammarrelated question, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Boys and girls, worlds apart We are worlds apart in the way we emotionally speak to our sons and daughters. There is a lot of research on these separate worlds. The reality is that boys and girls are, in fact, raised in two different emotional worlds. Emotions nurture very different skills between boys and girls. According to Goleman, girls become “adept at reading both verbal and nonverbal emotional signals, at expressing and communicating their feelings,” and boys become adept at “minimizing any emotions having to do with vulnerability, guilt, fear and hurt.” My take on this is that there isn’t any one right or wrong way of raising emotionally adept kids. What’s important is that we notice, appreciate, understand and parent our kids with what is in our heart. We may live in emotionally different worlds from the opposite gender but the heart does not discriminate and is our sole gender connection. Hugs!
PARENTING By Becky Kapsalis I know I’m not alone in my experiencing of raising boys versus girls differently from one another. Daniel Goleman confirms this in his book “Emotional Intelligence”. As a mother of four boys and one daughter, it was a foregone conclusion when we were raising our children that we talked to our sons in an authoritative way (mostly angry), going into detail about the causes and consequences of their behavior. When talking with our daughters, we were more willing to discuss emotions (with the exception of anger) in greater detail. For example if our sons were swinging a plastic bag filled with marbles in a room full of windows I would immediately go in to “cause and consequence” mode: Stop swinging those marbles. You’re liable to break a window and then you’ll really be in trouble. If our daughter were swinging that same bag of marbles in a room full of windows, I might go into emotional discussion mode: Do you realize that by swinging that bag of marbles you’re risking hurting yourself and others and that would be upsetting?

Carmel filmmaker breaks age record with new project By Tia Nielsen Cuttent in Carmel Luke Broyles stared intently at the sideby-side twin escalators. Transfixed, the young Carmel filmmaker studied first the one rising up toward his feet; then planted himself in front of the other escalator as it made its steady dash to the lower level of the IUPUI Campus Center. To his left were cameras and lights filming an interview with visiting Hollywood film editor Chris Witt. As a filmmaker himself, why was Broyles looking elsewhere? Donna Broyles explained that her son was mentally framing the images of the escalators while evaluating shot angles for film projects. He was not acting like an 11-year-old boy after all. But Broyles’ insatiable eye for a film story initiated surprising twists in his budding career. Desiring to enter a short documentary in the inaugural Heartland High School Film Competition, Broyles had a problem. Although this West Clay Elementary fifth grader has already held three premieres, with corporate sponsors, for his film trilogy “Swords & Shields,” the conundrum for the Heartland contest was age. Programming Coordinator Ray Mills noted that each entry had to have an adult sponsor. Broyles’ film “Michael,” about his special needs friend Michael McCauley, was submitted by his parents. Chuckling, Mills explained that when the

on Oct. 15,” Mills said in an e-mail. In addition to finishing the filming and editing of “Bird Brothers,” a true story written, Broyles is also creating the support video for a family raising funds to go to Kenya as missionaries. Last year Broyles produced a video on global water solutions as part of an annual Indiana “think tank” leadership event for seventh graders from around the state held at The Orchard School in Indianapolis. This year he is making an opening film for that same IMAGINE program. His documentary “Michael” will be part of a package of short films run as a set during the 19th Heartland Film Festival, the flagship event of Indianapolis-based Heartland Truly Moving Pictures. Happily, there is no age requirement to buy a ticket.
Heartland team saw the submission, they said, “Wait. We know Luke.” “He didn’t qualify for the competition (not in high school),” added Mills, ”but we were very impressed with the film and decided to include him as an official selection during the High School Film Competition program as a look at a future filmmaker.” Broyles’ film will be shown four times during the 2010 Heartland Film Festival. “Jeff [Sparks, Heartland Film Festival founder] confirmed that Luke will become the youngest filmmaker to have ever screened at Heartland

Arts council continues Stay HOME. BE MOVED. mission to help arts center By Kevin Kane Current in Carmel The Carmel Arts Council is looking to build on its recent success in raising money for The Center for the Performing Arts with its fourth annual fall fundraising event. To date, the arts council has raised $62,000 for the center and will add to that with its formal evening event, Prelude, to be held Oct. 30 at the Ritz Charles. Some changes have been made to enhance guests’ experience, but this year’s formal event has another purpose in addition to raising funds – as indicated by the name. “The whole purpose of Prelude is to get people excited for things to come,” said arts council Vice President Cherie Piebes. That idea of previewing the center is why the arts council reached out to the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre, which will soon move north from Marian University and call the arts center – and Carmel – home. Civic Executive Director Cheri Dick said the theater’s presence at the event will add to the event’s entertainment, as Civic will take the opportunity to again introduce itself to its future neighbors. “We will do some highlights of song and dance from Civic’s season,” she said, adding that more specific details of the theater’s perfor-
mances will remain a secret until the night of the event. In addition to Civic’s performers, Prelude will feature Carmel singer-songwriter Blair Clark who, following the evening’s theme, will perform nearly two hours of selections from the Great American Songbook. The Songbook is a collection of arguably the best American songs of the 20th century, and many of these items will move to the arts center with the Michael Feinstein Foundation after the center officially opens in January 2011. As with previous years, the evening will again feature both live and silent auctions including high-quality items, such as a piano, fur jacket and weekend packages at the Renaissance Indianapolis Hotel and Hilton Garden Inn, respectively. The proceeds from the event will be used to help the arts center as it nears its grand opening, which Executive Director Doreen Squire Ficara said is the duty of the council. “Our mission is to support the arts here in Carmel,” she said. For more information on Prelude or to make a reservation, see the event’s listing in this week’s Current or contact Doreen Squire Ficara at 8444989 or email@example.com.

Football season is in full swing, and with it comes another excuse to throw a party — with fabulous food, of course! Impress your fellow fans with this tailgate-inspired dish. Ingredients • 1 cup(s) fresh orange juice (from about 2 oranges) • 2 tablespoon(s) grated orange zest (from about 3 oranges) • 6 cloves garlic, minced • 1/4 cup(s) soy sauce • 1 tablespoon(s) brown sugar • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt • 1/2 teaspoon(s) fresh-ground black pepper • 4 pound(s) chicken wings Preparation 1. Heat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine the orange juice with the orange zest, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken wings and toss to coat. 2. On two large baking sheets, arrange the wings in a single layer. Reserve 1/4 cup of the orange mixture and spoon the rest of the mixture over the wings. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the wings over and baste them with the reserved orange mixture. Cook until just done, about 10 minutes longer. 3. Menu Suggestion: Serve this finger food with a vegetable that you can also eat with your hands, such as strips of raw fennel or jicama. 4. Test-Kitchen Tip: When you grate the orange zest, remove only the orange layer of the skin, leaving the bitter white pith behind. 5. Wine Recommendation: Sweet, salty and hot, this dish really needs a wine with good acidity, moderate alcohol and just a touch of sweetness. Look for a low-alcohol German kabinett riesling or a semi-dry riesling from the Finger Lakes region of New York. -www.delish.com

Ruling Your World: Ancient Strategies for Modern Life By Sakyong Mipham Are you one of the many people who think that your life is out of control? Then this book may help bring peace and purpose back into your life. In a very simple format the author, Sakyong Mipham, explains ancient secrets for taking control of one’s life. The trick is to stop thinking about yourself all the time. Although it sounds much too easy, the author shows that if you can gain control of your mind, you will gain control over yourself and then you can rule your world. Mipham shows how the “self-centered” lifestyles of today can be exchanged for compassion and “doing for others” and that these small steps will make the world a better place to live. This book is short and easy to read yet informative and enlightening. The author is the one of the foremost Buddhist teachers in the world. He is fluent in English (he was raised in America) and he runs marathons to raise money for Tibet. Turning the Mind into an Ally was his first book.

It is all a balancing act
INTERIORS By Vicky Earley A room that lacks balance is not a room anyone wants to live in. If it’s top heavy you’ll feel overwhelmed, while bottom heavy rooms might result in a sinking feeling for your poor house! Avoid the problem with these tips and by following your instincts when designing: Creating a Balanced Room • Balance heavy furniture pieces with other large objects or groupings of smaller items. • Don’t place all furniture against walls. Instead, use the middle of the space to create depth and interest and to create functional areas, such as conversation or work spaces. • Look at the height of furniture pieces and try to create multi-levels within the space. If you have a shorter piece and need to add height, hang a larger piece of art on the wall above, elongating the space and allowing the eye to travel up. This will actually make the room feel taller! • Use color and patterns to your advantage. Strong, vibrant colors can make a room come alive but remember to not overuse a particular color or pattern. Spread each through-

out with pillows, window treatments, and art. • Just as with color, a variety of textures can add depth and interest. A variety of texture in pillows, rugs, drapes, and throws will also create interest. The use of marble, wood, and metal can provide grounding to a space. Glass is more open, and breezy fabrics or wicker create an airy feel to the room. Arranging a Room • Consider how traffic will flow through the room. Most passages require two feet of space. Flow that leads to personal space in a home, such as a bedroom, can be reduced. This provides a subtle message that the area beyond is closed to visitors. • Arrange furniture before hanging pictures or mirrors. • Arrange major pieces of furniture first, then smaller items such as end tables, chairs and floor lamps. Leave enough room for doors and drawers to be opened. • Think about lighting and how it will function in the room and place tables which will hold lighting accordingly. • If placing a television in a room, consider the distance required between the screen and the viewer. Most sofas should be at least eight feet away from a standard television screen but with rapid technology changes, this is not a hard and fast rule.

Resveratrol: A link to healthier aging?
NUTRITION By Laura Marceno Can resveratrol help one live a longer and more youthfully? Resveratrol is a natural antiaging compound found in red wine and has gotten a lot of news coverage in the last few years. Resveratrol, a polyphenolic phytoalexin present in red wine, is known to possess potent antioxidant properties, such as protecting the body against the kind of damage linked to increased risk for conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes, but other sources include peanuts and berries. One of the most important studies on resveratrol was conducted by researchers at Harvard Medical School. The researchers fed one group of mice a diet in which 60 percent of calories came from fat. Not surprisingly, these mice soon developed signs of impending diabetes and grossly enlarged livers compared to mice fed a standard diet. Another group of mice was fed the same high-fat diet but coupled with a daily dose of resveratrol. It did not prevent obesity from the high fat diet; the mice grew just as fat as the other mice. But, the resveratrol dose was shown
to avert the high levels of glucose and insulin in the bloodstream, and it kept the mice’s livers at normal size. Even more profound, resveratrol sharply extended the mice’s lifetimes. Those fed resveratrol along with the high fat diet died many months later than the mice on high fat alone. Further research is continuing on resveratrol. Well not a fountain of youth, there is growing evidence of benefits to resveratrol for improved health and longevity, and possibly even cancer prevention due to its antioxidant effects. It may be the link behind the French Paradox, the puzzling fact that people in France enjoy a high-fat diet yet suffer less heart disease than Americans. Always consult with a doctor, but no negative side effects are known to this natural compound. You can get the benefit of resveratrol by drinking red wine in moderation (1 to 2 glasses) or by taking a quality resveratrol supplement daily.

No excuse for chest pain HEALTH By Dr. Angela LaSalle We’ve all heard or read about the signs of a heart attack: chest pressure that may radiate down the arms or up the front of the neck to the jaw area, nausea, sweating and shortness of breath. However, the preceding signs may be much more subtle, and can be easily overlooked as being a part of the ordinary discomforts that we sometimes experience. It is important to understand that the body is wired in such a way that pain occurring in one of the internal organs can refer (move) and cause pain in another spot in the body. Heart pains can easily mimic indigestion causing a mild pressure in the upper stomach area that is often mistaken for gas or reflux, especially if it is accompanied by nausea. It may or may not also be felt between the shoulder blades which has resulted in many people rationalizing that it simply a pulled or tired muscle in the back or shoulder. It can also be felt in front of the neck or jaw area, without any chest symptoms. And the number one hallmark of cardiovascular disease: fatigue. Unexplained tiredness, inability to complete tasks due to feeling winded or heaviness in the body can also be the warning signs of a heart problem. In fact, fatigue is the number one symptom most commonly reported by women. Women are

much more likely to have atypical symptoms, which can result in a delay in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. The important point here is to pay attention to your body’s signals and to not rationalize your symptoms. Seek medical attention, and don’t be afraid to call 911 if you’re having chest, back or arm pain or shortness of breath. EMS teams are trained to begin assessing and dealing with the situation in route in order to provide the best outcomes.

Taking care of summer skin damage SKIN CARE By Brooke Tetrault Did the sun lure you in again this summer? Is your skin paying the price? Sun spots, dry skin, more fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and uneven tone: was it worth it? The good news is that you can be forgiven with a little education and initiative. The sun’s UVA and UVB rays cause damage to the skin cells’ DNA molecules including free radical formation, collagen breakdown, decreased immunity and repair functions, and mutations in DNA. This damage leads to cell death and uncontrolled cell growth. All of this causes wrinkles, dry skin, uneven tone, and even cancer. Collagen production slows down starting in our 30s, and sun damage further speeds up collagen degradation. So what can be done? There are several options to correct damage and turn back the clock. Skin care products, facials and peels, flashlamp, and laser treatments are all available. Firstly, use sunscreen with full UVA and UVB coverage. The types of products that use proper amounts of proven physical and/or chemical sunscreen ingredients are those you will find from your skin care physician and not over-thecounter at your local drug store. Products that resurface, stimulate collagen, and fade as well as prevent those sunspots are imperative to reverse sun damage. Safe chemical peels can be effective s
as well. You should seek advice from your skincare professional to address your chief concerns. You will have more dramatic correction of sun-damaged skin with laser and light-based procedures. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a very common light-based procedure that is quick, safe, and effective in fading sun spots and correcting uneven tone. Pearl resurfacing is the most effective in reversing the damaging effects of summer sun. It addresses not only pigment and uneven tone, but also wrinkles, pore size, skin laxity, and texture/ scarring. Also, since it is a laser with precision targeting, it stimulates collagen production for more improvement for months to follow. It removes the uppermost layers of damaged skin in one short procedure and reveals new, smooth, more vibrant, youthful looking skin in just a few days. Most importantly, the Pearl procedure provides an excellent safety profile and some of the most effective results of any laser on the market. The fall and winter seasons are the perfect time for these procedures. See a skin care professional soon to reverse the summer sun damage.

bedding Finding fear, surviving in business Gorgeous Ever made a BIG COMMENTARY By David Cain Would you believe that people do more to avoid pain then they do to seek out pleasure? Think about it. What were your last five decisions? What was the motivation? Did you do it for pleasure or to avoid some pain or potential pitfall? If you dig deep, you’ll find more often than not that you are motivated by what keeps you up at night and your anxieties, rather than your wildest dreams. After all, people are just animals. And animals act out of a need for survival. Decisions have more to do with what pain gets resolved than the pleasure it delivers. We have a need to survive. We make our decisions based on that survival mentality. Not too glamorous, but mostly true. I was driving back from lunch and, without thinking, turned the car around and headed to get coffee. I had a meeting in ten minutes, but I was sure I could make it back in time. What made me turn around? I was afraid that I wouldn’t have a good meeting without the caffeine. File that example under sad but true. I changed shirts this morning not because of vanity, but instead I was afraid I’d be made fun of because it was way too pink.

buy a new one. I make decisions at work based on what I think protects me from pain. I’m a survivor. Even though I like to think that my decisions are based on vision, forethought, and my dreams, I can trace every decision I make to a fear. At the root of every decision, there’s a fear or a pain being dissolved. The rest is just rationalization. After all, pleasure could be defined as life without pain, fear, or conflict. Find the fear and you’ll tap into the survival instincts of an animal. Find the fear and you’ll find how to truly influence decisions. What’s more, you’ll find the unintentional consequence of better understanding and communication with others. When someone believes you understand them, they are more willing to listen and act on your recommendations. Understanding their pain is understanding their perspective and that’s what creates influence. Try it out. Find the pain and you’ll find keys to influence. After all, like most animals, we’re all just trying to survive.

Ohio based Oberer’s Flowers is making the move to Carmel, Ind., with the hope of establishing themselves as a major player in the area floral business. Oberer’s looks to distinguish themselves from other area flower shops, especially in the atmosphere of their store and the quality of their product. While many flower shops often also carry décor and gifts, Oberer’s focus is on flowers. The store is designed to feel like a large floral district, especially with the large floral refrigerator that takes up about half of the store. Opportunities for do-it-yourself arrangements, easy wholesale purchasing, and assistance from floral designers if desired are all features of the new location. “Indiana felt like a natural place to be,” said Director of Operations in the Indianapolis area Rob Spikol. “It’s a major crossroads for our business. Carmel has a real hometown pride and community feel to it, which makes it the natural fit for us. When an arrangement arrives you can truly tell it’s Oberer’s from the quantity and quality of the flowers.” Oberer’s promises outstanding quality for low prices and plans to give away many arrangements on their opening day. Oberer’s is set to open Oct. 5, at their location at 12761 Old Meridian Street, Carmel, Ind. 12761 Old Meridian Street, Carmel, Indiana 46032 Phone: 317-575-1197 Web site: www.oberers.com

Do Smartphones get viruses? TECHNOLOGY By Gary Hubbard The amount of new malware that is being written to infect computers continues to grow at a fever pitch, and the most common target is unfortunately your identity. A recent study showed that searching for entertainment sites (music, video, games, software, etc.) and including the word “free” in the search, your chances of coming across a malicious website goes up exponentially, in some cases 300 percent! When it comes to your smartphone vulnerabilities, browserbased attacks on smartphones are early in development. Researchers are still working on finding theoretical possibilities, but nothing substantial exists in the wild. There is a new vulnerability that was recently discovered for Adobe’s Flash player, which runs on desktop operating systems like Windows, Mac and Linux, but the latest Android operating system (2.2) has some exposure to this exploit (the first of its kind, since most smartphones can’t run Flash). At this point in time, it’s actually safer to use your smartphone for accessing web content, especially the fringe content that is highly targeted for desktop computers, but that’s likely to change over time. With the popularity of smartphones on the rise, the real concern for users right now, are downloadable applications that can contain malware or silently access private information on your phone. Smartphone manufacturers do their best to police rogue applications in their various app delivery systems, but they have had some apps that sneak past the security tests and were only later pulled from their app stores. One of the benefits to only getting applications from the au-

thorized sources is that the vetting process (especially for Apple’s App Store) is pretty rigid and the likelihood of a malicious program getting onto your phone is very low. As the capabilities of what a smartphones, and tablets like the iPad, increase, so do likely the risks in using those features (the current Flash issue is a good example).

Today, it is all about me RELATIONSHIPS By Rachael Noble I was recently on a date with a guy who said something all too familiar to me. He said, â€œYou are absolutely nothing like I thought youâ€™d be. Iâ€™m really happy about that.â€? Because Iâ€™ve heard this before, I thought Iâ€™d ask him why he said this. Does it mean I give a bad first impression? He described how he thought from seeing my photo in the column and hearing about my career that I would be high maintenance, spoiled and stuck up. Ouch! He was glad to see I wasnâ€™t any of those. Anyway, considering I hear this perspective not all that infrequently, and the fact that I get a lot of emails asking where Iâ€™m from and more about myself, I thought Iâ€™d make these next few columns, well, all about me. If youâ€™ve been reading my column for a while I guess itâ€™s nice to know more about the gal whoâ€™s writing it, right? So hereâ€™s my story. I grew up in Anadarko, Oklahoma, a little town in the middle of nowhere, made up of more American Indians per capita than anywhere in the world. I am registered as a Choctaw Indian, and have just enough blood in me to receive government funded medical, dental and vision care (and food when I was in college) in Oklahoma.
I went to public school through until the second grade, a Christian school through fifth grade, and then I homeschooled through middle and high school. We lived far out on the prairie that overlooked a red canyon valley, which was all American Indian land and housing. We were a self sufficient family; we grew a large garden to can all the produce to keep in our cellar and feed us year round. We also kept chickens for eggs, had sheep, guineas (Dang those birds! Look them up because theyâ€™re horrifically ugly and attacked us every time we walked out the door!), rabbits and horses. On the subject of horses, I ride bareback. We could only afford one saddle, so every day when my sisters and I rode they always got dibs on the saddle, so I had to do without. I was the girliest tomboy youâ€™ve ever seen so when I was little: Iâ€™d ride in my fluffy dress and cowgirl boots, jumping on my horse without a saddle or bridle. I think Iâ€™d be afraid to ride like that these days! Rachael Noble is a single Carmel resident and contributing columnist. She can be reached at email@example.com.
