Chaucie’s Place prevention program – Duke Energy Foundation recently granted Chaucie’s Place $5,000 in support of the nonprofit organization’s Body Safety Prevention and Education Program. “Duke Energy supports Chaucie’s Place mission to empower children to protect themselves and break the cycle of abuse,” said Mark LaBarr, Duke Energy Indiana north central district manager. “Through our Duke Energy Foundation, we provide the communities we serve with the resources and support they need to help them thrive.” Through its Body Safety program, Chaucie’s Place staff and volunteers teach elementary school-aged children that their bodies belong to them, they have the right to say no to any unwanted touches, and they should tell a trusted adult about any touches that make them uncomfortable. In the 2011-2012 school year, Chaucie’s Place reached more than 9,200 students in and around Hamilton County with these important messages.

YAR to host workshops editorial@youarecurrent.com

The Ambassadors Show Choir (Submitted phoot)

Ambassadors host Cabaret and Silent Auction fundraiser By Bryan Gilmer editorial@youarecurrent.com On Oct. 14 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Ritz Charles, 12156 N. Meridian, the Carmel High School Ambassadors Show Choir will be hosting its first Cabaret Show and Silent Auction to raise funds for the school choir. This year, the Cabaret Show and Silent Auction replace the “Bowling with the Ambassadors” event. Cheryl Camp, an Ambassador parent, said that the change allows the kids to “showcase their talent” and gives more people more opportunities to hear them sing. Elizabeth Palmer, a senior at Carmel High School and an Ambassador, said that the Cabaret show will be a “night filled with fun and excitement.”

Members of the choir will be singing as a whole group as well as several solos and duets. Moreover, the Silent Auction contains items from Cappuccino machines to services provided by the Ambassador students. Camp hopes that the event will become a tradition that helps the community grow as a whole. Camp went on to say that the funds raised from the night will go to helping the Ambassadors put on more shows, such as charity events for Kids Against Hunger. The cost to attend the night is $25 per ticket, which includes food. Tickets can be reserved by sending a check made out to “The Ambassador Club” to Olga Keegan, 193 Twin Springs Ct., Carmel, IN 46033. The show will be a black tie and evening gown affair; however, those going are recommended to dress in business casual attire.

Youth as Resources, a program of United Way of Central Indiana, will host three workshops for Hamilton County youth interested in applying for Youth as Resources grants. YAR makes small grants to youth who identify community needs and design projects that use their skills, creativity and energy to help others. Groups may apply for up to $1,000 to cover project expenses, materials, transportation and youth recognition. Youth groups must have an adult advisor and a nonprofit sponsor, which may be a school, church, youth-serving or community agency. January 25, 2013 is the Hamilton County grant deadline. Youth groups and adult leaders who are interested in developing a community service project and applying for a grant must attend one of the following workshops in Hamilton County. Register online at uwci.org/yar. An online grant application process is being used. Login information and how to apply will be given at the following workshops: • Nov. 6 – 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at University High School, Carmel • Nov. 20 – 7 to 8 p.m. at Fishers Public Library, Fishers • Nov. 29 – 7 to 8 p.m. at Noblesville Public Library, Noblesville For more information, please contact Jill Troha, coordinator, at 566-6721 or jill.troha@uwci.org.

Volunteerism

Bringing a saint to life Commentary by Jeff Worrell During the last two years since the very first performance at the Palladium, the stage has welcomed the famous and talented. But never before has the Palladium stage featured a Saint. That will all change on the evening of Oct. 11. On that night, The Little Sisters of the Poor will throw open the doors of the Palladium and welcome anyone who would help them celebrate the third anniversary of the canonization by Pope John Paul II of their Foundress, St. Jeanne Jugan. The Little Sisters of the Poor have been humbly serving Indianapolis since 1873. They operate St. Augustine's Home for the Aged on West 86th Street with a population of 100 residents. Mother Mary Vincent, along with a tireless group of dedicated, humble and holy Sisters, provide a dignified home to the elderly poor. If you have not yet experienced the love and compassion found within the walls of St. Augustine, you should make an effort to schedule a visit soon. There you will see a nursing home facility unlike any other. It is like “heaven before heaven.” The special evening of the 11th kicks off at 7 p.m. and will bring the humble saint to life. St. Jean Jugan, a modest 19th century peasant woman

who lived in France is known for sharing what little she had with others. Her story includes a deep desire to provide joy and comfort to the forgotten ones existing in her midst at the time. The order she founded operates pristine homes around the world for aging individuals who have nowhere else to turn. St. Jugan’s life will be told through spoken word and music. Rex Rund will lead the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Choir performing original works. The featured speaker for the evening will be Dr. Edward Gatz from Nebraska. He will share his story of miraculous healing from cancer through the intercession of St. Jeanne Jugan. Entry to the Palladium will not require a ticket, but a free will offering will be taken. The Little Sisters of the Poor are excited to share its story and honor a giant of a lady whose good works of charity continue to provide food and shelter centuries later right here in Indianapolis.

Applefest just around the corner By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com Carmel, get ready to start dipping into the caramel. Applefest, an inaugural event created by The Arts and Design District Business Association of Carmel, is slated for Oct. 13. The one-day festival will take place in the PNC Bank lot on the northeast corner of Main Street and Rangeline Road from 1 to 5 p.m. While Applefest will live up to its namesake – apples will certainly be available, as will other food – the afternoon will also have a charitable angle. “ADDBAC members wanted to create a free community event as our way of giving back to the community and showing our support for art and education,” said Jill Zaniker, ADDBAC member and owner of event sponsor Simply Sweet Shop. “This is why we established the ADDBAC scholarship for college-bound high school students. All the money we raise from Applefest will go to the scholarship – that is what this event revolves around.” Live music, kids’ games and vendors are just some of the activities that Applefest will boast, but an art contest is arguably the centerpiece. The competition, open to students throughout Hamilton County, rewards the winner with the ADDBAC scholarship to be used toward college tuition. The entries will be judged that day. Also sweetening the scholarship pot is a decorated bushel basket raffle. The baskets will be decorated by ADDBAC members and will be raffled off at the event, and that money will go to fund the scholarship. The afternoon will also see the launch of Club Applesauce, a new quarterly newspaper dedicated solely to kids’ arts. Other activities include Face-in-Hole, face painters and caricaturists.

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption announced last week the sixth annual list of the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces in the government industry. Carmel and the Commonwealth of Kentucky tied for the No. 1 spot. “Carmel is honored to be considered amongst the 2012 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption,” said Mayor Jim Brainard. “Families today are created in diverse ways and given Carmel’s dedication to ensuring our city remains a great place to raise a family, we have adjusted our benefits policy to better align with the varied needs of City employees.” Carmel and Commonwealth of Kentucky provide their employees with up to $5,000 per adoption. “Knowing that the City of Carmel has adoption benefits makes you feel privileged and honored,” said Jeff Cooper, maintenance foreman for the City of Carmel. “They will back you and support your decision to offer children a loving home and stability in life.” “The formation of a family comes with both joys and challenges,” said Rita Soronen, president and CEO of the Foundation. “It is critical for parent and child to have the opportunity to adjust when a child joins his or her adoptive home. We’d like to say thank you to the employers who provide family-friendly work environments and offer benefits to make adoption more affordable for families who open their hearts and homes to a child.”s

Runners react to Race 4 More's starting gun. (Submitted photo)

Race 4 More a success By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com The first-ever Race 4 More, held in Carmel on Sept. 22, brought out supporters from around Central Indiana and raised more than $140,000 for Carmel-based Love at Work Ministries. Love at Work co-founder Larry Prible thanked everyone who was part of the Race 4 More effort. “It was a huge success,” he said. “(More than) $95,000 was raised for a new feeding center, and overall $140,000, with donations still coming in.” Love at Work provides food, housing and education to the poorest of the poor living in the slums of Costa Rica. More than 220 runners, walkers and their families participated in the race that started and ended at Northview Church, 12900 Hazel Dell Pkwy. Participants chose between a fourmile option weaving through the city streets and a one-mile course on the church grounds.

Sponsors like Zeko Shoes, Current Publishing, Kroger, WGNR 97.9FM and others all helped make the day a celebration. Part of the race proceeds were given to DREAM Alive Foundation, an organization founded by former Indianapolis Colt Tarik Glenn and committed to fostering character and leadership in Indy teens. “Everyone who came out in support of the Race 4 More is a winner,” Prible continued. “But the biggest winners are those we serve who are struggling each day to survive. The funds raised in this race mean better nutrition, better education and better housing for people living in desperation. We cannot thank our partners, volunteers and donors enough.” Love at Work will use the majority of what was raised to help construct a new three level feeding center outside San Jose, Costa Rica. The center will provide a place for hungry kids to be fed, as well as job training and daycare for mothers seeking to support their families.

Traffic snarls and businesses in the red not the norm during U.S. 31 construction

U.S. 31 south of 146th St. (Photo by Derek Fisher)

By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com It was going to be Trafficgeddon. It was billed to be the biggest traffic nightmare Hamilton County had ever seen, the ruination of so many morning and afternoon commutes and a knockout blow to nearby businesses. There were to be detours on top of detours, backhoes where smooth asphalt had been, no way to get “there” from “here,” no matter how close “there” may have been. In reality, so far? It hasn’t been nearly so apocalyptic. The Indiana Department of Transportation continues work on the Major Moves project, a 10-year, $2.6 billion undertaking launched in 2005 by Gov. Mitch Daniels to improve and expand Indiana’s highway infrastructure. At present, U.S. 31 in Carmel sits directly in the effort’s crosshairs. Work began last year some six miles north of the city at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Ind. 38, and while final touches are being added to an interchange there, the focus has shifted to the addition of exit lanes and on-ramps at Keystone Parkway and 146th Street. It is there the rumored quagmire was to occur, but according to local merchants, business has remained largely unaffected. “I’ve got to be honest, to date I can’t tell that it’s had any effect,” said Dan Moyer, proprietor of Moyer Fine Jewelers, 14727 N. Meridian St. “I drive it every day and I really don’t find that my drive is any longer than it was prior to that. It’s always been bad around 5 o’clock, but that’s part of what Moyer they’re changing.” Moyer allowed that the nature of his business might have granted it some immunity from the issues other merchants might face. “I can’t speak for the other guys, because I’m a destination location,” he said. “The restaurants www.currentincarmel.com

are more of a spontaneous thing. If a guy’s getting engaged, he’s going to find a way to get across 146th Street.” What’s the worst part, if any, Moyer has seen thus far? “The media saying there’s a lot of construction going on,” Moyer stated bluntly. “The Indianapolis media kept saying prepare for big problems, and honestly I haven’t seen them.” Southwest across the stacks of rebar, piles of gravel and heavy machinery from Moyer’s edifice sits Clay Terrace. Restaurateurs there seem to have noticed more of a downtick in business than does Moyer. “I think initially, it slowed Thomas some traffic down,” Kona Grill

general manager Chris Thomas said of the construction. “Mostly from the south entrance. But it’ll be great once it’s completed.” “We have seen a change in business,” offered Mark Schaefer, Thomas’ counterpart at Kincaid’s Restaurant, 14159 Clay Terrace Blvd. “It has been hectic over the summer time, mainly due to the different detours, lack of visibility of the restaurant and different Schaefer roadblocks. It has not affected our occasions dining – a birthday, an anniversary. Because when people really want to go somewhere, they are going to find a way to get there.” Thomas concurs with that assessment. “As long as you’re delivering on the experience, people are going to come,” he said.

What remains to be seen is how the fast-approaching holiday shopping season will be affected by the construction. According to Nathan Riggs, INDOT spokesman, the area between 151st Street and where Range Line Road meets U.S. 31 will largely escape any holiday madness. “Current construction, from just north of 146th Street to just south of Range Line Road, is expected to wrap up in November – before the shopping season,” Riggs said. “(2013) construction will concentrate on the area north of 146th Street to just south of 169th Street.” Generally more so than restaurants, shops in the area depend on holiday sales to pad their bottom lines. Two Clay Terrace-based boutiques look to be just fine, should the present flow of business continue; representatives from both Z Gallerie and locally-owned AH Collection said that things had remained steady and that pattern looks to continue. “I don’t have anything specific that says it’s really hurt business,” said AH Collection coowner Anne White. “It’s been pretty steady throughout the time. We market our store so much, and if things decline we would do some type of sale – but as a local business, we do that anyway. We’re content to White ride it out.” “I would say it’s affected us slightly, but weekends still tend to be on the busy side,” said Jeremy King, associate manager of Z Gallerie. “I think it’s been good because they handled the 146th Street area a little quicker than we expected. It hasn’t hindered things so much, and we’re getting into our busy holiday season.” Moyer seemed to summarize King the entire mood of the project well, saying, “I think they’ve done a great job, as a matter of fact, keeping things flowing. I give it high marks so far.” October 2, 2012 | 13

Opinion Some key questions for President Obama

War on Walley World It is our position that the war waged on super giant retailer Walmart, by Zionsville preservationists may be a lingering battle. Recently, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. filed revised plans to build a smaller, more attractive store along Michigan Road, north of 106th Street on the Hamilton-Boone county line. The Zionsville Plan Commission is set to consider the proposal at its Oct. 15 meeting. However, aspiring Walmart Greeters, don’t put on your bright red vests just yet.

The fight has been going on for six years now and has spawned two lawsuits, one by Walmart claiming that there is no valid reason a store should not be built in the area. While Zionsville is not immune to mega retailers with a host already doing business in the area, Village preservationists and local retailers have been dragging their feet for good reason. Perhaps the aberration is Walmart’s reputation for being a “small town killer,” putting smaller retailers out of business by using bulk purchasing to offer low prices on its goods and services. Regardless of which side wins the war, here’s hoping that the Village of Zionsville remains a peaceful respite from generic strip malls and the mega-store grind. Let originality reign.

A tailored fit

Commentary by Terry Anker

In visiting a new tailor recently to have a button repaired on a suit, the no doubt well-intentioned seamstress suggested ever-sopolitely that they offered a service that would narrow lapels and generally bring a “quality suit back into fashion.” It was one of those moments where one is both complimented and insulted. She has, albeit in a backhanded way, suggested that there must have been some good taste and desire for superior fabric and construction in me – even though it was hard to see behind lapels that one could only imagine must be reminiscent of Dumbo’s ears. A suspicious nature might lead one to conclude that the purveyor was simply looking to enhance the revenue from a modest repair to a complex alteration. But after a look in the ubiquitous mirrors lining the walls of the establishment, it was clear, even to an aging eye, that she was more sympathetic than rapacious. So after agreeing to the new cut, delivery

and some small talk, I returned to my day reminded that even as time marches on, the details of our lives – once finely honed and completely intentional – can begin to say something entirely different about us. From one perspective, there is a measure of success in that the suit still fits, that it was of such quality as to last for a span measured in decades and that the value based per wearing had exceeded all expectations. Yet from another’s take, it appeared tired, at best, quaint. The tailoring, while classic, seemed dated and nostalgic. Did it reflect the attitude of its wearer? Like so many passing moments if we stop to consider them fully, we realize that the meaning may be greater than imagined. Is it time to look at the cut of our lives and perhaps adjust a little?

“My expectation is that if you want to be president, you have to work for everyone, not just for some.” – President Barack Obama, during taping of “The Late Show” with David Letterman. That comment by the commander in chief came in response to Republican challenger Mitt Romney’s comments at a private fundraiser. We found the president’s comments quite interesting, if not begging of certain questions. Such as: • Was the president thinking of everyone when he bailed out General Motors to save union jobs (one of his most important sources of financial support) while crushing bond holders, which, in effect, broke American bankruptcy laws? • Was he thinking of everyone when he granted all the ObamaCare waivers to, among others, union members? (For a complete list of those abdications, go to: www.freerepublic.com/ focus/f-chat/2900475/posts.) In case you’re counting, the list now is up to 1,231 companies, give or take. According the Health and Human Services Dept., ObamaCare waivers excuse about 4 million people. • Was he thinking of all entrepreneurs when he gave more than half a billion dollars of taxpayer money to Solyndra? Remember Solyndra, the solar-panel company? When government picks winners and losers, we know for whom the loser’s bell tolls. It’s we taxpayers. The president was just lucky that the “journalist” involved in this exchange was David Letterman. But, let’s face it: Would the questioning have been any tougher had Andrea Mitchell of NBC had been the interviewer? ••• As Columbus Day is Monday, next week’s Current will be delivered to you this Saturday.

Personhood legislation is not pro-life Editor, I am the survivor of two ectopic pregnancies. In the years since, I have been a worker, a mom, a wife, a teacher and a volunteer. I have paid taxes, bought homes, supported my community and voted. I have gardened, created art, written poetry and published short stories. I have loved and have been loved. None of that would have been possible had the proposed Personhood Legislation been enacted. Had the Personhood legislation been enacted, I would have suffered an excruciating death from shock and infection. An ectopic (literally, “out of place”) pregnancy cannot result in a viable fetus. In fact, there is no true pregnancy as an embryo does not develop beyond erupting the fallopian tube it implanted in. To say that a pregnancy has been

Wilson not to be taken literally Editor, I read with interest in the September 18 edition, an editorial comment addressed “‘Peace In’, Danielle.” Personally I enjoy reading Danielle’s column and don’t take her diatribes literally. It’s all in fun and no different from Mike Redmond or Dick Wolfsie’s off-thewall and exaggerated commentaries. Cyndi Bradshaw, 46032

ended when saving the life of the woman is a fallacy. Additionally, an embryo cannot be transplanted into a uterus once it has implanted in a fallopian tube. If legislators claim to be “prolife,” but reject treating a woman who has an ectopic pregnancy, they are essentially consigning her to a death sentence – which is not prolife. Indiana and national candidates have maintained they are pro-life and therefore in favor of Personhood legislation. This is unacceptable to women like me who have lived through ectopic pregnancies and gone on to have productive, fulfilled lives. It is the responsibility of legislators to become educated on the issues they stand behind, and that includes all aspects of what is being considered as Personhood legislation. Jody Kuchar, 46033

Danielle Wilson 'gets it' Editor, I have enjoyed Danielle Wilson since her debut in The Current. Her humor is irreverent, real and hilarious. I get another dose of laughter when I read the outrage of her critics. Long ago as a young mom I decided to quit playing the perfect game and just be honest. Consequently, I have been blessed with people who “get it.” I have found that laughter truly is the best medicine as long as you are not laughing at others. Danielle Wilson is merely laughing at herself as she navigates through a society that expects perfection. Diane Johnston, 46033

Opinion

Life-changing objects I've discovered Commentary by Danielle Wilson This has been a great year for me. Why? Three discoveries that have quite literally changed my life. And because I am a giving person, I’ll now share them with you, my fine friends. Sperry Topsiders Yes, they are a bit expensive ($70) and yes, they can make already big feet look gi-normous (think clown shoes), but God bless them, these shoes will change your life. When my dogs hurt, I get cranky, see, and when I get cranky, ain’t nobody happy. But I often want something a little dressier than my black and pink Sauconys. Enter the Sperry Intrepid. These leather and mesh topsiders are like baby kisses for your feet, with just enough support to make crisscrossing Kings Island or hiking a shale mountain perfectly enjoyable. Plus, they’re stylish. You’ll look like you just stepped off your yacht, even in Indiana. Get them wet, leave them on a beach, accidentally run over them in your van . . . no problem! They’ll beg for more and look good doing it. Simply amazing footwear. Wireless Headphones Admittedly, I have control issues, particularly when it comes to bedtime. I demand complete darkness, silence except for my sound machine, and a room temperature that would make polar bears shiver. My husband, Doo, as cruel Fate would have it, must watch television to fall asleep, breaking two of my carefully constructed sleep “requirements.” I can combat the light by wearing a

mask and burrowing under two pillows but can never completely drown out the sound. I can’t tell you how many fights this has caused. Until . . . wireless headphones! They have changed my life! Now Doo can watch whatever he wants for however long, and I can’t hear a stinking thing. I get to sleep and he gets to veg. It’s a win-win, and for $37, far cheaper than counseling. The Effect of ADHD in the Marriage Another miracle available for purchase and cheaper than a shrink is this book. Even if you or your spouse does not have ADHD, it will change your life. “The Effect of ADHD” is basically an inside look at how opposite personalities can create strong relationships but can also cause tons of problems. When my husband and I read through it this summer, we kept saying “That’s us!” or “That sounds exactly like your brother!” You will relate to almost every scenario and situation presented, if not in your own household, in those of your friends and family. And though the author doesn’t give answers, she offers techniques for resolving differences effectively and for celebrating even the most annoying habits (watching television in bed). Again, you’re welcome. Peace out.

Red all over: Observations on hair color Commentary by Dick Wolfsie Last week my wife and I watched a TV program highlighting the most popular television shows of all time. Mary Ellen was delighted when Barbara Walters announced that their poll revealed I Love Lucy was ranked No. 1. “Everyone loves a redhead,” my wife proclaimed. Mary Ellen is very fair and objective. It probably didn’t even dawn on her at that moment that she is a redhead. Out of sight, out of mind. Does everyone really love redheads? In my research, I discovered that just three weeks ago, there was the Red Head Convention in County Cork, Ireland, where almost a thousand natural redheads redgistered (yes, that’s how they spelled it) to be part of the festivities. Activities included carrot tossing and red pepper juggling. If you were not athletically inclined, you could bring home the MFPSI award: Most Freckles Per Square Inch. How do you train for that? The convention was not all fun and games. Redheads face some serious issues; experiments done at the University of Louisville a few years ago showed that it takes 20 percent more anesthesia to knock out a redhead in the dentist’s office. My wife is already a knock-out, so this doesn’t apply to her. Researchers hooked electrodes to brunettes and redheads so they could shock them with a gradually increasing intensity, at the same time upping the amount of anesthesia they requested to ease

the pain. This experiment, which I thought had been outlawed by some international treaty after WWII, apparently proved that redheads are either total wimps or are smart enough to quickly say: “Hey, knock it off, or I’ll remove these wires and wrap them around your neck.” I didn’t show my wife the article because I wanted to do a little independent study, myself. My friend’s wife is a brunette, so we both spent a few weeks doing extensive personal research and then compared notes. According to our observations, a man with a red-headed wife (that would be me)… 1. Requires a 100 percent more expensive restaurant to get out of the dog house. 2. Will tell 100 percent fewer jokes about people with freckles. 3. Will spend 100 percent more time saying to clerks at Christmas time: “My wife can’t wear that color.” 4. If he’s smart, is 100 percent less likely to use the word “fiery” in front of her when she gets angry. 5. Is 100 percent more likely to hear his wife say: “I think we’ve been out in the sun long enough.”

My stomach isn't what it used to be Commentary by Mike Redmond One of the life lessons I am slow to process in these, my “experienced” years, is that I simply cannot eat the way I did when I was younger. Oh, I can still use a fork and knife and all that, but what I can use them on is another matter entirely. The cast-iron constitution of my youth, those heady days of foot-long hot dogs, giant pepperoni pizzas and peanut-butter-anddill-pickle sandwiches, has given way to a digestive system that has become – to use a word that has been applied to me a grand total of Oh, Never – delicate. And to add a word that has been applied to me a grand total of Too Many Times To Count, cranky. Let me give you an example. The other night, I ordered the evening meal at the drive up window of a certain “restaurant” with a name that evokes a place where kings and queens live. It rhymes with Slight Hassle. Yes. I bought a bag of sliders. Gut bombs. Depth charges. I was going to say I did this against my better judgment, but who are we kidding? I don’t have any better judgment. What the heck. It seemed like a fun thing to do. Soon I was sitting at the dining room table, my loyal dog Cookie at my side. And no, I did not share. While I usually give Cookie a taste of whatever I’m having, I know better than to

Photoshop for

let her have Whi – I mean, Slight Hassles. She’s a gassy dog to begin with. Sliders mixed with regular doggy air biscuits would be disastrous. Several hours later I was awakened from a sound sleep by a sensation that we can charitably describe as “uncomfortable.” Or maybe it would be more accurate to say “overinflated.” I felt like I’d swallowed the Hindenburg. I was sweaty and clammy, unsteady. My insides rumbled ominously. Oh, the humanity. I sat up, clicked on the light and looked around the room. There, staring at me over the end of the bed, was Cookie. She looked resentful. Well, you don’t have to be Einstein to figure it out. If something you eat – something that never used to bother you, gastrointestinally speaking – makes you so spectacularly windy that it chases the dog out of the room, you probably shouldn’t be eating it. Ever again. All right, so … lesson learned, just because a person is of a certain age doesn’t mean he can’t still learn, or that he can’t change in order to accommodate a new reality.

Stonycreek Farm celebrates 40th Pumpkin Harvest Festival By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com What began as a small pumpkin patch in 1972 has grown into a full-service nursery and landscaping business. Harvest season is now celebrated each year on the 1860’s Stonycreek Farm, 11366 Ind. 38 East, Noblesville. This year marks the 40th Annual Stonycreek Farm Pumpkin Harvest Festival which runs now to Oct. 31. “We now have third generation families picking their own pumpkins. We take great pride in seeing children find their first pumpkin in our fields,” says Loren Schmierer, owner of Stonycreek Farm. The 40th anniversary marks a first in Stonycreek history. Because of this summer’s drought, Stonycreek Farm has germinated pumpkins in greenhouses in preparation for the annual event. The seedlings were then planted in the field and maintained with a water truck. Thanks to a proactive germination program, the farm hopes to yield 50,000 pumpkins despite extreme drought conditions. Pumpkins aren’t the only attraction at the festival. Once again, the zip line is expected to be a crowd pleaser. The cost is $15 per person for anyone age 10 and up who weighs between 90 pounds and 250 pounds. In honor of the anniversary, those turning 40 years old during the month of September or October get a free zip line ride (with valid ID). The zip line sails across the Christmas tree field, over a pond and gives riders a spectacular view of the hayride wagons heading out to the field. The ride is approximately 400 feet long and is 40 feet high in some places. The festival includes entertainment for “kids” ages 8-80. Have you ever wondered what a grain grinder looks like? A new educational program will feature antique farm equipment where visitors can learn about the use of various vintage farm equipment. Other highlights include hayrides to the pumpkin patch, a haunted house, the gourd sling shot, corn cob cannon, Kiddiepillar (inflatable), candle making, farm animals, and more. Kids can take pony rides and talk with a blacksmith, as well as jump in a giant straw mound and play at the playground. Most activiwww.currentincarmel.com

‘All that jazz’ and more at Beef & Boards

The Children’s Museum Guild’s Haunted House

Commentary by Hope Baugh “Chicago” is perhaps a steamier show than Beef and Boards audiences are used to. The costumes are skimpier, the language more raw. However, the quality of dancing and singing is some of the best I’ve ever experienced there. And it is, after all, a show about murderesses fighting for the media spotlight during Prohibition. Deb Wims plays Roxie Hart, a bored housewife who kills her unfaithful lover in a jealous rage. Marisa Rivera plays Velma Kelly, a glamorous burlesque performer who catches her boyfriend in bed with her co-star sister and kills them both. Roxie and Velma meet in prison, where they fight over handsome, hot shot lawyer Billy Flynn (Curt Dale Clark.) He sings that all he “cares about is love” but really all he cares about is his $5,000 fee. If all this sounds tawdry, it is. You don’t go to this show to find role models. It is also sexy and scandalous. I grinned the whole time, though, because this show both titillates and pokes fun at titillation. I also grinned because even the “smaller” performances are treats. Alene Robertson as corrupt prison matron Momma Morton, M. J. Austin as flighty reporter Mary Sunshine, and Eddie Curry as cellophane husband Amos Hart, all make their famous roles their own in delightful ways. The ensemble of nine back-up singers-

Don't fear your sweet tooth

Almost everyone I know has a sweet tooth, but these same people want to eat a more healthy diet. For some people, the scariest part of starting off on a new, healthier way of eating is the idea of giving up their favorite sweet treats -- forever! So let’s rethink the idea that all candy is bad for you. Jean Lawrence writes on MedecineNet.com, “Don’t despair. Sweets can be part of a healthy, lifelong eating pattern. But for the least harm and -- don’t forget this -- the fullest enjoyment, they should be eaten in moderation. That means in small amounts or only a couple of times a week”. Since tailgating for football is generally only once a week, we can eat candy at our tailgate party. Now here’s even better news for chocolate lovers, Everyday Health’s Stephanie Sy tells us that a recent study finds that dark chocolate is actually good for your heart. So don’t be afraid to make everyone happy by serving them candy. Here’s a great candy treat for your next tailgate party, even if you aren’t from Ohio. Buckeyes

• 1 Tsp. vanilla • Melted Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips for coating Preparation: Mix peanut butter, margarine, vanilla and sugar until semi-dry and crumbly. Form mixture into small balls the size of “Buckeyes”. Slowly dip the balls into chocolate to coat leaving the top uncovered to resemble a buckeye. Place the buckeyes on waxed paper and refrigerate. Transport these candies to the game in your food cooler in a re-sealable plastic container that protects them. Joe Drozda is an author about sports and food.

Wellness Younger adults seeking new answers for joint pain

HEALTH

Commentary by R. Michael Meneghini, MD Hip and knee replacement surgery has traditionally been associated with older adults – those beyond age 65. Today, however, people in their 50s and even 40s are considering joint replacement surgery to relieve pain so they can stay active, continue their favorite activities and maintain their quality of life. To serve this emerging younger population, extensive research is ongoing to design cuttingedge orthopedic implants that are durable, have improved bearing services and that will minimize risks and side effects. On the surgical side, techniques such as navigation technology, which monitors the position and alignment of the implant in relation to the patient’s anatomy, achieve improved mobility and range of motion for patients. Today, some 90 percent of knee replacements are expected to last 20 years or more. And, although hip and knee replacements are arguably two of the most successful surgeries in medicine, they are still invasive procedures accompanied by risks. For people of all ages, the best ways to prevent degenerative joint disease and the need for joint replacement surgery is to stay physically fit and to maintain a healthy weight. Excessive weight puts undue pressure on the joints,

causing degeneration. However, if joint pain and discomfort are already an issue, seek out a reputable orthopedic surgeon and schedule a consultation. (I discourage patients from using the internet as a resource, as it contains a lot of inaccurate and misleading information. Consult with a qualified and experienced orthopedic specialist instead.) After taking a complete medical history, the surgeon will perform an exam and order x-rays of the affected joints for evaluation. The x-rays will show the extent of cartilage loss and help determine whether joint replacement surgery is an immediate remedy or an option that should be considered down the road. The surgeon will also discuss how the joint pain impacts quality of life. In nearly all cases, orthopedic specialists will try non-operative treatments first – medication, injections and/or physical therapy. When warranted, hip and knee replacement surgery helps patients return to the activities and lifestyles they enjoy. R. Michael Meneghini, MD, specializes in orthopedic surgery. He is a guest columnist located at IU Health Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine – Saxony, 13100 E. 136th St., Ste. 2000, in Fishers. He can be reached by calling the office at 688-5980.

DOUGH

Business

Season's greetings

Commentary by David Cain

Does your business have a season? Do you need one? I was at the bus stop last month when a neighbor was talking about her husband’s racing team being a contender for the series championship in the race that weekend. She was excited. She was supportive. She had a stake in the outcome. His team won the series that weekend. He returned to the bus stop the next week with a renewed sense of job satisfaction. “It’s nice to win.” Anybody who has ever walked out the door and headed to a job or school knows it’s nice to win. The trouble with most jobs (not school, they grade you) is that it’s hard to know if you are winning. Every day looks the same. Every project feels the same. Everything blends together and becomes gray. Being able to hoist a trophy at the end of a season turns all the shades of gray into vivid colors. Like a crisp golden sunset, you see the ending and anticipate the sunrise. A common reason people leave their jobs is because it is uninspiring – a bad boss, a lame vision, disorganization, unclear goals, and other lackluster, uninspiring junk that clutters your head. What if

all businesses had their own ‘season’ where they either won or lost? What if there was a bit of an offseason and there was certainly a post-season campaign (playoffs)? What if every business had something to rally around and had to perform as a synchronized team to accomplish the known goals that constituted a win? What if, right? If you are running a business that’s not in the business of professional sports, maybe you need a season? Maybe at the very least you need a clean, clear set of goals and clear responsibilities for how the team accomplishes those goals. Maybe you need a season where your position is declared with celebration and planning for next season following closely? Fundamental to every person’s satisfaction is being valued. Do the people you work with feel valued? Do the people you live with feel valued? Are you valued at work and at home? A season might not be the answer but it certainly provides me with a valued perspective.

The Gospel makes no sense Commentary by Bob Walters

Logic and reason may be the twin towers of worldly intellectual life, but faith and freedom are required to experience and apply the wisdom of God. We can thank the ancient Greeks for modern mankind’s obsession with physical evidence. “Truth” credited to Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, and championed by philosophers through the ages, grips both the highest reaches of contemporary academia and mankind’s simplest common sense. That “truth” in a nutshell? Things are only true if one can explain them. It is among Satan’s cleverest deceptions, convincing humans that ultimate truth a) resides inside each of us and b) is limited to what we can prove to others. God, desiring love and faith above all, bestows intellectual freedom on us to discover His truth. Some people do find God through Christ, but many find only themselves or the world’s pleasures, or despair, or confusion. Absent faith in the ultimate goodness of God, the truth of Jesus Christ, and the comfort of the Holy Spirit, countless thinkers have busied themselves trying to make sense of the world by worshipping explanations or devising systems. They attempt to explain that which is unexplainable without faith in God; we mistakenly think ultimate truth will include a clear explanation. In the world’s realm of evidence, power and

self-examination, the Gospel of Jesus Christ doesn’t make sense. God became human? Almighty God, in the person of His own sinless son Jesus the Prince of Peace, died a violent sinner’s death on the cross to … free mankind from sin? Be serious. Christ’s resurrection assures believers eternal life? God did all this to save the weak? Historical ironies abound. Greek philosophy flowered in the intertestamental years between the writing of the last book of the Old Testament, Malachi (circa 500 B.C.) and the birth of the ultimate authoritative teacher, Jesus. From then until the 18th century A.D., academic and intellectual investigation was overwhelmingly devoted to discovery through the infinite lens of Christ’s wisdom. Today, the academy satisfies itself – restricts itself, actually – with the pocket magnifying glass of man’s knowledge. In Greek-educated Paul’s 1 Corinthians 1:18-31, esp. v19, “the learning of the learned I will confound,” God declares the folly of intellectually “going it alone.” Of course, we are free to think differently. But it’s not wise.

Grammar Guy

Look-alike syndrome Commentary by Jordan Fischer There are approximately 500,000 words in the Oxford English Dictionary, and the list of words which didn’t make the cut is easily that amount over again. It’s an abundance writers take advantage of, certainly. For example, if I want to say that I’m sweaty, I have some options: clammy, perspiring, sudoric, diaphoretic, soaked, damp, dripping, etc. With all those words to choose from, you’d think we’d have no problem steering words with similar meanings away from similar pronunciations and spellings … but no; that would be too easy. This week, in celebration of the pain this causes many editors (and I’m sure just about everyone trying to learn English as a second language), I present four word pairs that should just go their separate ways. Adverse and averse – These two are a pain. They’re both adjectives, and they both have a negative denotation. “Adverse” indicates an unfavorable condition, while “averse” (typically followed by the word “to”) indicates disliking or opposing something. The rule of thumb here is: If you’re talking about something you don’t like, you’re averse to it. If it’s something bad happening to you, it’s an adverse event. Compliment and complement – If you ever wondered in math class when you would use all the stuff you were learning, that day has come. “Complement” with two “Es” indicates some-

thing that improves, augments or adds to another thing. In geometry, which, incidentally, also has two “Es,” complementary angles are those which add up to 90 degrees. A “compliment” with an “I,” however, is simply an expression of praise. For example: “Compliments on your interdisciplinary explanation, Jordan.” Thanks, reader. Imminent and eminent – “Eminent” signifies prominence. A bishop is in an eminent position in his church. Many longtime residents are considered eminent members of their community. “Imminent” signifies that something is coming soon. There might be an imminent tornado warning, for example. In medicine, a transient ischemic attack, or mini-stroke, can be the warning sign of an imminent stroke. Intern and inter – In the interest of full disclosure, these two appear on this list out of personal experience (and not a small amount of chagrin). To “intern” somewhere is to act as an apprentice or student worker. To “inter” somewhere is to be buried. So, for example, when a rookie reporter who is assigned to the obituaries desk writes that someone was “interned” at the local cemetery, he is incorrect (Unless maybe he’s talking about a mortuary sciences student).

Fun facts about Tahiti Commentary by Tracy Line

For me, one of the best parts of being a travel agent is learning about various destinations. Recently I’ve been studying Tahiti and French Polynesia. Here are some fun facts about this South Pacific destination: Geography. The islands of French Polynesia are half way between Los Angeles, CA and Australia/New Zealand. There are 118 islands, spanning 1.5 million square miles. There are 5 island groups: the Society, Marquesas, Australs, Tuamotu and Gambier islands. The Society Islands are the most visited, and include Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora, Taha’a, Huahine and Raiatea. Climate. The average air temperature is 79 degrees and the water averages 80 degrees. The seasons are reversed, so summer runs from November to March, and winter is from April to October. Hurricanes are a rare occurrence. The island landscape is lush, with low-lying coral reefs and mountain peaks offering incredible ocean views. Details. Tahiti is the largest and most populated of the islands. US visitors typically fly into Pa-

peete, the island’s capitol, which is an 8-hr flight from LA. Hopper flights and ferries will take you to the other outlaying islands. The official languages are French and Tahitian, though English is widely spoken. Tahitian time is 2 hours behind PST (6 hrs behind Indiana’s current time). Unique offerings. French Polynesian is known for it’s beautiful black and white sand beaches and calm, electric blue water, perfect for snorkeling and diving. You can experience the Polynesian culture, which dates back to 300 AD, by exploring stone temples, observing Tamure (Tahitian dance) and tasting the local cuisine. Visiting the French Polynesian islands is definitely a treat, one that comes with a higher price tag. However for those seeking the ultimate getaway, perhaps in an over the water hut, these islands will not disappoint.

Jerky treats (and others) still making dogs ill Commentary by John Mikesell I thought it would be a good idea to give everyone some information on some of the jerky treats imported from China that are associated with the problem. They go by a number of names, including tender’s strips, chips, wraps, twists and more. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Veterinary Association (AVMA) first issued warnings about these treats in September 2007, saying that more than 70 complaints had been received, involving 95 dogs who experienced illnesses that owners suspected were linked to these treats. The FDA issued another warning in December 2008 and again in November 2011 after reports increased. By 2012, over 1,300 complaints had been received, including reports that dogs had died. The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association also began receiving reports of illness in 2011.

MSNBC reported in March 2012 that internal FDA documents it obtained showed the brands of chicken jerky most often cited in priority 1 cases (those the FDA considers most reliable) are Waggin’ Train, Canyon Creek Ranch and Milo’s Kitchen. Recently, other dried treats imported from China became suspect as well, including duck jerky and dehydrated sweet potato treats. All of these treats have been associated with a type of kidney failure in dogs called acquired Fanconi syndrome. Recovery can take up to six months, and some dogs have died or been left with chronic kidney disease. Affected dogs may show any or all of the following signs. • Decreased appetite • Lethargy • Vomiting and diarrhea, sometimes with blood • Increased drinking and urination • Blood tests may show increased creatinine and BUN (signs of kidney failure), low

potassium, mildly increased liver enzymes, and acidosis. • Glucose and granular cast may be found in urine. If your dog experiences any of these symptoms after eating treats imported from China, stop feeding it the treats immediately. If signs are severe or persist for more than 24 hours, take your dog to the vet for tests and treatment. Save the bag of treats in case they are needed for testing in the future. You and your vet should file a report with the FDA. According to the FDA Web site, “To date, scientists have not been able to determine a definitive cause for the reported illnesses” For More Information: www.fda.gov/Animal Veterinary/SafetyHealth/ProductSafetyinformation/ucm295445.htm John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at john.mikesell@att.net.

Love ‘em – We all love to eat, and this does not exclude our furry counterparts. Sometimes, however, one notices that their dog or cat has been eating excessively, and has a seemingly insatiable appetite. Overeating is sometimes caused by boredom or low-grade stress. With lots of running, jumping, and cuddling, your pet should be back on track and perfectly healthy. - www.goodhousekeeping.com Company – Day trips to the pool or long weekends at the lake are perfectly okay, as long as pets have visits from a pet sitter and plenty of food, water and outdoor excursions. Mostly pets just sleep, but to ease the separation anxiety for the few nervous pets, try taking him to a dog behavior specialist or enrolling him in doggie-day care. - www.goodhousekeeping.com

Your gorgeous girl will be doing all sorts of primping and pampering to look amazing on your big day. Guys should get out there and get pampered and cleaned up for the big day too. Here are our top three tips on what to do leading up to your big day, with enough time left to possibly still hit the links the morning of your vows: 1. Make sure your hair is trimmed and neat. Schedule your haircut 4-5 days before the big day. Ask your stylist for product recommendations and styling tips so you are sure to look your best. 2. Are your hands and feet in need of some serious attention? Even if you have never tried

BRIDE TO BE You have your dress…you have your jewelry…you have your shoes, but don’t forget about your most important accessory of all…your hair! This year, brides are opting for down and loose looks rather than the perfectly sculpted up-do. Show your carefree side by sporting a messy chignon, or long and loose curls. You will be sure to love these new and improved popular bridal styles! You can also glam up your “do” with hair accessories. Crystal brooches from your grandmother can serve as your “something old,” while a French twist accented with sparkling hair pins will look like you stepped right off the red carpet. If you are still unsure of the style you want for your big day, be sure to consult with your stylist. Trained stylists are able to take into account the feel of your wedding and your dress style and customize a look to complement the overall feel of the event. They are able to suggest the perfect “do” so you can say “I do.”

it, a manicure and pedicure may be in order. Schedule your manicure and pedicure 2-3 days before the wedding to be sure your nails are in photographic condition for the pics of your new ring. 3. And, even if you have avoided most of the wedding planning load, the approaching day can bring on some stress! Relax, and enjoy a nice massage the day before you walk down the aisle.

BANG, BANG! Watching the red carpets and flipping through fashion mags is a great way to find out what is in vogue. Over the past couple months, one of the main hair fashions seen on style icons is bangs. While bangs may be popular amongst celebs, how do you know if they are right for you? Bangs are high-maintenance, but can be a great asset to your style. Bangs are great for large foreheads. They also best suit faces with strong features. For delicate facial features, be sure not to get lost behind excessively thick bangs. If you have curly or thick hair, be careful that your bangs are not too short. They may have a tendency to stand on end if not cut to the right length. For your best bet, consult with a Salon 01 stylist who is trained in understanding facial shapes and hair texture. Remember: it is important to keep your bangs at an appropriate length. They need to be trimmed by a professional about every 2-4 weeks.

INSIDE & OUT

Indoors

Decorate with cozy

Commenatry by Vicky Earley

Did I really just hear the furnace kick on? This is far too early and far too soon. It is time for some serious “warming up” and “cozying up” of spaces! Cozy and warm are meant in both an emotional and physical sense. A home that is so inviting that people want to put their feet up on an ottoman and stay is a truly comfortable home. A room that is armed with interlined window treatments, rich throws, and a blazing fireplace IS warmer and cozier! Emotional comfort is experienced in a space that is the right combination of color, texture, lighting, furniture and furniture placement. While the feeling of cozy can be quite individual, there are some elements that seem to be universal. Clusters of furniture create a sense of togetherness, while furniture that is anchored to the walls engenders a feeling that the center of the room is just an open pit. Physical comfort plays a definite roll in “cozy.” Furniture that does not fit the body can break the feeling of safety and comfort. The height and size of a person and the dimensions of a chair or couch do make a difference. Lighting has an emotional impact on the

cozy factor, as well. Dimmers are the first step to warming up a space. Florescent and LED lighting tends to be cold so a bulb that offers warmer lighting is key. Lighting a room with fire in a fireplace is the definition of cozy. Even if you don’t have a fireplace in your cozy space, add candlelight! The flickering of candles reflects intimacy and warmth. Throws can’t be too thick or too plentiful. A rich, Merino wool is all the invitation I need for a toasty evening all curled up! Natural and rustic materials often evoke a sense of comfort, whether that means aromatic scents in the air, leather lamps or wood accessories on tabletops. Cozy and comfortable can be as simple as having upholstered or cushioned chairs in the dining room if you want people to linger after a meal. It can also be as simple as a chaise in a bedroom that is away from drafts, loud noises and the world. You know that a room has achieved “cozy” when you feel the urge to sit down, slip off your shoes, curl up and let the thermometer drop!

Removing wall opens up kitchen Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home is located in the South Harbour subdivision in Noblesville and was built in 1973. The current owner has lived there for 25 years and is the second owner. REASONS FOR REMODELING: Why remodel? “I always wanted a bigger kitchen. There was so much wasted space in the dining room, and the kitchen was smaller than those in most people’s apartments. It was a galley kitchen with little counter space and a huge pantry. There was no room for anything else. The builder must have felt that the large pantry meant there was no need for any other kitchen space! I had new cabinets, flooring and appliances installed in 2003 but it really did not help with the space issue. I decided I was going to stay here, as I like the neighborhood and the water, so it was time to expand the kitchen.” DESIGN PROCESS: The owner went through a detailed design phase looking at several design schemes over the course of 5 weeks. “The goal of the remodel was better use of space.” KITCHEN DETAILS: The expanded kitchen includes new painted maple cabinets in bisque and ebony capped with a two-piece crown along

Before with new Hi-Macs solid surface countertops in Aztec Quartz color and bullnose edge. The floor includes new 13” x 13” porcelain tile from Dal Tile in Delta Gray color. The lighting upgrades include recessed can lights, under-cabinet lights and decorative mini-pendants over the peninsula. The new white solid surface sink includes a Delta Palo stainless pull out faucet. FAVORITE FEATURES: The owner commented on her favorite features. “The peninsula and the wall of cabinets are my favorite parts of the remodel. The red pendants give me the
