Redevelopment site near CFD HQ may expand By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com More than two years after receiving lower than expected bids from developers for land near Carmel Fire Dept. headCITY NEWS quarters, the city is considering expanding the project area and trying again. This time, in addition to the 3.3-acre parking lot north of the CFD headquarters at 2 Civic Square, it also would include a strip of city-owned land to the west that fronts the Monon Trail. The Carmel City Council’s land use committee discussed the transfer of less than 1 acre to the Carmel Redevelopment Commission at an Oct. 2 meeting. The committee sent the matter back to the city council with a unanimous favorable recommendation. “The redevelopment commission would like to see what kind of tax-generating, neighborhood-creating project we can put on this site,” CRC Director Henry Mestetsky said. “We have lots of examples of for-sale products and residential products fronting the Monon. I think everyone generally agrees that only enhances a neighborhood and enhances the Monon itself.” CFD Chief David Haboush said he supports the land transfer. The site houses a shed used by the street department but little else. “The only concern that I personally have about neighborhoods being that close (to

the station) is that at 7 a.m. we have shift change,” he said. “Between 7 and 7:30 every morning, all of those trucks are checked out.” The parking lot north of the fire station previously appraised for $3.7 million, but the top bidder in 2017 offered only $300,000. The CRC director at the time said the bids possibly came in low because of infrastructure improvements needed to facilitate the project, such as drainage upgrades and relocating a street. “No developer came in with a project that

the redevelopment commission deemed acceptable,” Mestetsky said at the committee meeting. “We want to continue to see if we can find a development with a developer that works.” Since then, the city has opened the Veteran’s Way garage in nearby City Center, which is expected to provide parking for onduty firefighters once a project is under way. Haboush said he’s started parking there and has told firefighters that their usual lot isn’t expected to be available much longer. “We get it, a parking lot doesn’t produce an income,” Haboush said. “We know that the city is growing.” Councilor Kevin “Woody” Rider, who attended the meeting but is not on the committee, said he has concerns about the Veteran’s Way garage running out of available space. He said he doesn’t want city vehicles currently stored in the space designated for the project to be kept in the garage. “We keep promising that same garage to different things. Everything we want to build in that area, we keep telling them they can park at the City Center garage,” he said. “It was built to accommodate what is going to be built at City Center. A parking lot for our unused inventory is not part of that.” Mestetsky said the extra vehicles could possibly be stored at the Proscenium, a mixed-use development under construction on the northwest corner of Range Line Road and Carmel Drive. It is set to open in 2020.

Plans for Sherman Drive townhomes withdrawn By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com Developer AZR Haver has withdrawn plans for four townhomes on the southeast corner of Main Street and SherDEVELOPMENT man Drive. The Carmel Plan Commission’s residential committee was set to discuss the proposal at its Oct. 1 meeting, but the item was pulled from the agenda earlier in the day. Many residents of the adjacent Johnson Addition neighborhood had opposed the plan.

They told the commission at a meeting in August they were concerned about the project changing the character of the area and leading to subsequent proposals that could do the same. The two-story, mid-century modern townhomes were proposed on .43 acres, which is currently the site of a single-family dwelling. Developers must wait three months before submitting another proposal on the site. The committee also discussed an updated proposal from Lennar Homes to build townhomes on 6.8 acres between Rohrer Road and the Monon Trail. The plan for Monon Crossing

Townhomes requires a rezone of the site from residential to urban residential. Developers originally proposed 64 townhomes on the site but are now planning 60. Other changes include moving the townhomes further back from Rohrer Road and a revised color scheme on the back of the buildings. The three-story townhomes are expected to range from 1,700 to 2,400 square feet and cost between $275,000 and $350,000. The committee unanimously voted to send the proposal back to the full plan commission with a favorable recommendation.

Carmel committee works to refine skateboard ban By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com The Carmel City Council’s land use committee wrestled with finding the right words CITY NEWS to update its ordinance banning skateboards and other toy vehicles from certain parts of town at its Oct. 2 meeting. Councilors said their Worrell main goals are to prevent damage to city property from skateboarding tricks and ban wheeled toy vehicles in parking garages. “It’s really about doing damage,” council President Jeff Worrell said. “I don’t care if they roll from Point A to Point B.” The proposed amendments add Carmel Midtown, the Arts & Design District and all parking garages as places where skateboards and scooters are not allowed. It also proposes banning them in Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation parks except on greenways, trails, multi-use paths and designated skate parks. Bicycles are not included in the ban. Jon Oberlander, City of Carmel assistant corporation counsel, said prohibiting the vehicles in broad areas such as Midtown and

the Arts & Design District does not mean they wouldn’t be allowed on the rights of way, such as sidewalks and streets. Rather, the ban would apply to property owned by the city in those areas and include language covering statues and benches. He said he would prepare a map showing those locations before the committee’s next meeting. Some councilors thought the proposed wording was too broad, but a consensus Klitzing was not reached on how to refine it. The committee decided to continue studying the issue. It plans to meet again at 5 p.m. Oct. 15 at City Hall. Worrell asked if a skate spot, which would include benches and other items installed for skateboard tricks, could be included in the next phase of redeveloping the Monon Trail. Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation Director Michael Klitzing said he would support that. “If we were able to, in the appropriate places, find some linear opportunities on or near the Monon that incorporates the input from skateboarders, we could create a place where they are welcomed,” he said. Klitzing also said that the 12-year-old skate park at the Monon Community Center is due for upgrades.

Mohawk Trails earns blue ribbon honor By Sadie Hunter sadie@youarecurrent.com A Carmel school is among 362 nationally to be named a National Blue Ribbon School. Presented annually to EDUCATION public and private schools across the United States, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recently recognized Mohawk Trails Elementary among 12 other schools in Indiana on the list. Carmel Clay Schools has received Blue Ribbon designation 11 other times, most recently in 2017 at College Wood Elementary. This is the first time Mohawk Trails has been recognized as a Blue Ribbon School. “Our students, they come prepared every day, ready to learn, and I know that our teachers work so diligently to prepare and to meet each child where they are, academically and socially,” said Jennifer Greene, principal at Mohawk Trails Elementary. “They’re the reason we earned this award. Our parents also obviously send the best they have every day, so our parents are a huge piece of it as well. It’s a partnership between the school and the families. All of us work together to make sure that our students get the best education they possibly can, and this award recognizes that.” Each year since 1982, the U.S. Dept. of Education has presented schools with Blue Ribbon Awards for high achievement. Two categories of recognition make up the Blue Ribbon program: Exemplary high performing and exemplary achievementgap closing. High-performing schools were designated as being in the top 15 percent in the state for standardized test English and math scores. Achievement-gap closing schools also recognized schools in the top 15 percent of standardized testing results by state but more specifically looked at closing gaps in achievement in English and math in the past five years. Mohawk Trails was recognized in both categories. In the past decade, Mohawk Trails has received a consistent A rating from the Indiana Dept. of Education. IREAD testing scores for the school also saw a slight increase from 2016 to 2018, from a 93.94 to 94.1 pass percentage, respectively. Greene and Assistant Principal Sara Agee will attend the two-day awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., in November.

Don’t waste a child’s education Commentary by Lorene Burkhart According to my dictionary, the meaning of education is the knowledge gained from systematic instruction. It also includes the development of character PLAIN TALK or mental powers. As we become concerned about test scores of school children, we need to think about how children learn. Schools that have replaced textbooks with computers have not shown superior learning experiences happening in the classroom. Finland is known worldwide as being No. 1 in childhood education. Their educators focus on equity, happiness, well-being and joy in learning. They let children be children, believing that the work of a child is to play. Each hour in school has 15 minutes of play. The children learn to take responsibility and manage risks at an early age. When the Finnish educator who wrote this article for Fortune magazine moved to the U.S., he was dumbfounded that his 3-year-old child was expected to be evaluated to enter preschool. Being a Purdue graduate with a degree in education, I closely follow Purdue’s progress in managing the changing environment

of teaching and learning to accommodate the changes in the world and its resources. Vocabularies in the business world use words that are unfamiliar to me; company names in business magazines that are listed as best work places for millennials are a mystery to me. How does a university prepare its students for this rapidly changing world? Purdue created a roadmap, working with students and faculty, to determine the most important outcomes of a Purdue undergraduate degree. They are: communication, ways of thinking, interpersonal skills and cultural knowledge. A fourth was added later: intrapersonal awareness and development. Quality education was then described as a blend of academic preparation and professional skill development through curricular and co-curricular learning experiences. Children have a short time in their lives to learn and be prepared for the long time they have to be adults. Let’s not waste it.

Questions of faith examined By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com

YOUR

Carmel Interfaith Alliance will examine some age-old religious questions in its Meet Your Neighbor RELIGION series. Alliance President Jerry Zehr, who will serve as moderator, said panel participants will be from the interfaith alliance. This is the third year of the free public series but the first conducted by a panel. The first of three Meet Your Neighbor topics will be “Exploring Viewpoints on Free Will and Evil in the World” at 7 p.m. Oct 16. The other presentations will be “Exploring Perspectives on the Nature of God and the Purpose of Life” at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 and “Exploring Perceptions of Heaven and Hell” at 7 p.m. Oct. 30. All presentations will be in Carmel Clay Public Library’s program room. “There are some traditions who don’t believe in the devil,” said Zehr, pastor of Carmel Christian Church. “How do they understand evil? Is it from people? Where does evil come from? Does it come it come from God? Is it just people’s choices?”

respect,” Sasso said. “One of the problems is that in our society, we tend to think of ideas and truths in absolute matters. I’m right, you’re wrong. I’m good, you’re bad. What this type of conversation allows us to do is to look at truth from a different perspective, to understand that narratives, stories and religions may not be about the truth but the truths we hold dear and how we live by them and how we can share them with others with respect and not with antagonism.”

2-DAY FISHING WHITE RIVER EVENT STOPS IN CARMEL

Clint Kowalik, Go FishIN coordinator for Indiana Division of Fish & Wildlife, demonstrates the proper way to wet hands before grasping a fish to remove a hook.

Hazel Landing Park was one of 19 stops in a two-day Shoreline Fishing Down the White River program presented by the Indiana Division of Fish & Wildlife, part of the Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources. The 30-minute stop Sept. 20 in Carmel showcased recreational fishing opportunities at public sites around the White River watershed, their ease of access within local communities and the low initial cost of participation in the hobby.

Cameron Pritchard has completed his mission that started with his initial introduction to Boy Scouts ACHIEVEMENT 12 years ago. “I have wanted to be an Eagle Scout since my very first Cub Scout meeting,” he said. “I was a Cub Scout from first grade until crossing over into Boy Scouts in fifth grade. I have been working towards Eagle ever since becoming a Boy Scout. I lived in Switzerland in sixth through eighth grade, and I was in a Boy Scouts of America Troop there that was part of the Transatlantic Council.” The University High School senior and Fishers resident turned to Stacey SummitMann, University’s director of campus and community, to get ideas for projects that would help the Carmel-based school. “She gave me several ideas, and I picked building the picnic tables, so that full classes could be held in our outdoor classroom,” Pritchard said. Pritchard built two octagonal picnic tables for the outdoor classroom. The additional seating allows more students to have

a comfortable place to sit during classes. With the help of eight volunteers made up of family, fellow Scouts and troop adults, Pritchard finished the Eagle Scout project Sept. 22, 2018. The school began using the tables immediately. “I have since then finished up the final badges I needed, completed my Eagle handbook and had my board of review,” he said. Pritchard’s Court of Honor was scheduled for Sept. 29 at Holy Family Episcopal Church in Fishers, which is the home of his Troop 199.

sociated fee — dropped from 20.2 percent in 2016 to 15.5 percent in 2017 and 11.6 percent in 2018, even as its population grew. At the same time, Carmel’s percentage of calls increased as its call volume remained flat, rising from 28.6 percent of the total in 2016 to 31.3 percent in 2017 and 33.7 percent in 2018. Westfield officers still provide vacation checks and other proactive services, but the city no longer tracks them. According to data from Hamilton County, Westfield conducted 4,066 security checks in 2017 but only 74 in 2018. Its number of directed patrols, or officers sent to certain areas to prevent or reduce crime or other incidents, fell from 5,421 in 2017 to 112 the following year. “By no means would we make that change if we thought it would jeopardize an officer’s safety,” Jordan said. “(Customer service calls were) one of those things that a lot of communities don’t do or can’t do, but we wanted to provide it and share with our residents how many times we actually put eyes on their house. The vast, vast majority of the time there’s nothing out of the ordinary.” But that’s a risk that may not be worth taking, according to Horty. He said the chances of something dangerous happening in such situations is extremely low but the consequences could be devastating. “On the one hand, for officer safety you should mark out every single time, but in the real world someone might say not to mark out every single time you’re getting out of your car to make a dandelion check,” Horty said, referring to an obviously harmless situation. “The

cantly drop in recent years. The largest decrease occurred in Westfield. Data provided by Hamilton County show that Westfield police and fire calls peaked at 62,385 in 2016 but dropped to 45,290 in 2017 and 31,885 in 2018. This occurred as the city’s population grew by more than 10 percent. Westfield Police Dept. Asst. Chief Scott Jordan said WPD changed its policy regarding marking out in 2017 after it recorded the second-highest call volume in the county in 2016. At the time, Westfield had 11.9 percent of the county’s population but 20.2 percent of police calls to the dispatch center. Jordan said WPD’s proactive, comJordan munity-centered policy of reporting nearly every police action ended up making Westfield’s fee disproportionately high, so in mid-2017 officers were instructed not to mark out on “customer service-related” calls, such as vacation checks and foot patrols. Westfield’s portion of its dispatch center bill for police calls dropped by more than $285,000 in two years, a total Jordan attributes in large part — but not completely — to the internal change in policy. “That was too much money to ask our residents to pay to track non-police calls,” said Jordan, adding that a change in software used to track calls also contributed to the decrease. He doesn’t know if WPD will revert to its previous policy when the tax goes into effect. Westfield’s percentage of police calls — and its as-

By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com Hamilton County residents will soon be paying higher taxes to fund the 911 dispatch center, but some Carmel officials say the existing fee structure has led to other police departments putting their officers at risk. City and town councils representing more than half of the county’s population recently approved raising the local income tax from 1 to 1.1 percent to fund the dispatch center. The Carmel City Council is set to discuss the tax increase at its Oct. 7 meeting, although its vote will not change the outcome. The tax increase will go into effect Jan. 1, 2020. Currently, the county uses a formula that bases each city’s fee to use the 911 dispatch center on the number of police and fire calls it receives. The more calls generated, the more a city pays as a percentage of the whole. Some officials in Carmel say that system has led to other police departments instructing their officers to not alert dispatchers — a process known as marking out — when conducting certain proactive police activities, such as security checks and foot patrols. By not marking out on certain calls, a municipality lowers its call volume and thus its portion of the fee to use the 911 dispatch center. But it also means that dispatchers might not immediately know an officer’s status or location should something unexpected happen. “I believe that is a safety issue for the officer,” Carmel City Council President Jeff Worrell said. Tim Horty, a former police officer who is now executive director of the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, agrees. “I can think of very few occasions Worrell when a uniformed officer is better off by not marking out of service on an investigation,” Horty said. “The action typically would keep an officer safer and more efficient by having assistance close and keep the communication dispatcher informed.”

outlines when officers must mark out with dispatch. Weger said officers are given “some discretion” on marking out but that they are encouraged to do so on all calls for service, including security checks. “It’s an officer-safety issue,” Weger said. “Anytime you mark out or you get out on a detail, there’s a potential for you to have some kind of confrontation. Weger If you’re doing a vacation check to make sure there has not been a burglary, that means there is some potential there could be a burglary. If you just happen to walk up on a burglary in progress, that can be problematic.” In Carmel, the number of calls has remained steady the past three years at approximately 91,000 calls annually. Carmel Police Dept. Lt. James Semester said CPD’s communication policies have remained unchanged for many years. He said officers are required to Semester mark out on calls — including security checks and directed patrols — to alert other officers on duty of their whereabouts if they need assistance, to alert others when they are busy and to give supervisors a clear view of what each officer is doing in real time. “The Carmel Police Dept. believes that there is an inherent element of officer safety in marking out on calls,” Semester said. “Another reason we mark out on calls is because we pride ourselves on complete and accurate documentation. Having officers mark out on calls gives us a starting point for that documentation.”

ESSAY

LETTER

Company of one

Referendum will ensure school safety

Commentary by Terry Anker In the 1932 movie “Grand Hotel,” smoldering film star Greta Garbo exclaims repeatedly, “I want to be alone.” As the plot progresses, reallife reclusive actress begins a romantic relationship with a stranger to whom she had earlier proclaimed the need for solitude, thus guaranteeing that she would assuredly no longer be alone. The fictional character finds happiness only when she admits a secret desire to be anything but lonesome. We good people often live the paradox. Certainly, those of us who are not blessed (or cursed) by a genetic predisposition to extroversion understand. While time engaged in the company of others is good, even necessary, the time we spend alone is restorative and, likewise, required for good health. The needed allotment is not consistent across all persons. Something in us drives a longing for our own fortress of solitude, just as the same internal voice demands that we seek shared space. In marriages, offices and crowded buses, we find ourselves pursuing intimacy while quietly hoping for independent identity. We alternate between striking up conversations and withdrawing, earbuds in place, into our own thoughts. How do we find the right balance? How do we give, and get, fully while still holding something back just for us? Is there a way to simultaneously be entirely engaged and fully autonomous? With differing personality needs, who decides the standard? It is another actress, Belgium-born Audrey Hepburn, who summed it up thusly: “I don’t want to be alone, I want to be left alone.” Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Who said ‘one’ is easy? Commentary by Danielle Wilson Stupid sick kids. They ruin everything! Or at least give me high blood pressure. When does parenting get easy? I thought with three away HUMOR at college, I’d be mostly home free. My 15-year-old is fairly self-reliant and usually so busy with school and dance that I don’t see much of her. But she caught a nasty bug this past week and sent everything into turmoil. For starters, the nurse practitioner declared her ickiness to be viral, which meant no quick antibiotic fix. I was pulling for strep when I dragged her to the Minute Clinic on the third day of 103-degree-plus temperatures, but no such luck. We left with instructions to treat symptoms and to prepare for potentially 10 more days of lethargy, body aches, fever and sore throat. Obviously, school was out, but I didn’t want to take off work to watch her. So, after maybe seven seconds of contemplation, I decided she’d

be fine on her own. What’s the worst that could happen? I mean, if its bubonic plague, there’s nothing I can do anyway. Good luck, little lady! Don’t you go dying on me! Yeah, Mom of the Year right here. And I was actually more stressed about the amount of classes she was missing. Five-days’ worth could seriously derail her quest to beat her siblings for highest GPA, not to mention send her into a whirlwind of anxiety about catching up — a true nightmare for me as a mother. It’s hard when your baby is sick and you can’t do a darn thing to make her better. I guess I just assumed once I was down to one, parenting would be easy. Friends, I was wrong. Peace out.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” — John Lennon

Editor, Although I’m the parent of four Carmel school children, in May 2018 we lived in Noblesville, where two middle school sons were involved in a school shooting. I can tell you that was the worst day, but it’s not just “one day.” We still experience the long-term effects of the terror of that day. We had already sold our home in Noblesville and moved five days after the shooting. We chose to move back to Carmel to take advantage of all the city has to offer, primarily the schools. If we can come together as a community, the (school safety) referendum will fund hiring SROs for each school, allow us to increase the current salaries of current school counselors and social workers (to be on par with surrounding areas), to hire additional licensed mental health professionals and provide ongoing safety training and professional development. I will be voting “yes” to Question 1, the referendum on the ballot this November. I never want to receive another call from my son telling me he’s running in a field from a school shooter. I never want to get another call from the teacher saying she is riding in the ambulance with my other son because he fell off of the door barricade.

As the stomach churns Commentary by Dick Wolfsie I created quite a stir during services last Sunday morning. Mary Ellen was embarrassed when she first heard it. HUMOR She thought I should excuse myself from the sanctuary. Was that my stomach growling? No one has this identification problem with other bodily eruptions. Everyone clearly knows who the originator is - although with one sound in particular (and its result), there is usually blame-shifting that unfairly maligns the family dog. But with things like sneezing, hiccupping and coughing, it’s seldom an issue. I’ll admit that I have loud internal plumbing. Each week, I record an audio tease for my television segments on WISH-TV. My producer said recently: “Let’s do that last line over again, Dick. I just heard the building’s sewer back up.” The technical name for a grumbling stomach comes from the Greek word borborygmos. The dictionary says this is an example of onomatopoeia, a word that imitates the sound associated with something. Now, before you start Googling (which also is medical jargon for what my stomach is do-

ing), I already looked up this symptom and am aware that stomach rumbling is one indication of about 35 different illnesses, including uremia, acute mesenteric ischemia, aerophagia and functional dyspepsia - none of which I had ever heard of. That meant I needed to Google those particular disorders, as well, but more Googling would have turned my stomach - which was the last thing I needed. When your insides churn noisily, your brain is sending a message to your gut to prepare for a meal. As one medical site notes, your belly is saying: “Hungry. No food here; must eat soon.” Why do stomachs sound like Tonto talking to the Lone Ranger? I’ve been at my computer all afternoon and my wife just sent me an email saying she had a tough day and wants to go out for a quiet dinner. I hated to tell her, but that wasn’t going to happen. Not when I’m this hungry.

Riverview Health is establishing its first presence near the Boone County area with the groundbreaking of an GROWTH emergency room and urgent care facility at 10850 N. Michigan Rd. in west Carmel. It is the third of four planned similar facilities to break ground. The first broke ground in Fishers and is expected to open before the end of the year. The second is under construction in northeast Carmel at the southeast quadrant of 146th Street and Hazel Dell Parkway. The fourth will be in the Nora area of Indianapolis. A groundbreaking date has not been announced. Riverview Health CEO Seth Warren said the additions were made possible because of the success of the facility at Riverview Health Westfield Hospital, which also has an emergency room and urgent care. “We have gotten nothing but compli-

ments on the care (the combined services) provided there (at Westfield),” Warren said. The West Carmel/Zionsville location is expected to open by late summer 2020. Intuitive Health will partner with Riverview Health to provide management and operational assistance. Intuitive Health CEO Thom Herrmann spoke on the benefits of offering both services in one location. “They (Riverview Health) share this vision of providing access to health care in a way that’s more convenient and simplified for patients, and that’s really our mission,” Herrmann said. “So, if you think about some of the things that are driving health care costs right now, the decision between choosing urgent care or ER costs the health care system about $89 billion a year. Somewhere between 44 and 50 percent of patients who show up at a hospital’s emergency department could have been treated in a lower acuity setting, and when you think about the rise of high-deductible health plans, that can be an incredibly costly mistake.” For more, visit riverview.org.

Commentary by Anna Skinner anna@youarecurrent.com As temperatures cool and leaves begin to fall, there’s nothing better than cupping your hands around a BEVERAGES mug of warm coffee on a chilly morning, or at midday for a pick-me-up. Hamilton County brews up plenty of options, new and old, for those who love coffee. ROSE & LOIS Opening soon at 7249 E. 146th St., Suite 110, Carmel You can order coffee to-go, but have you ever heard of a coffee truck permanently on the go? Rose & Lois is a new business with plans to open its first brickand-mortar shop by 2020. Owner Rachel Priddy didn’t want to wait around until the shop was ready, so she and her family converted a trailer into a mobile coffee shop. Priddy sets up in the parking lot on 146th Street and Community Drive, where her new store will be built. Hours from 7 a.m. to noon on weekdays. She is serving lattes, nitro cold brew and hot coffee to folks on their way to work in what is called the “coffee desert” of Hamilton County by local coffee drinkers. I ordered the pistachio latte and sampled the Costa Rican drip coffee, both of which warmed me right up on an autumn morning. NOBLE COFFEE AND TEA 933 Logan St., Noblesville My favorite place to settle in and knock out my to-do list. The shop is big and has spacious seating with soft wood tones, the ultimate cozy atmosphere. You can sit by the window and watch people in downtown Noblesville hustle about, or cozy up in the corner to read a good book. I suggest an iced Americano or the Highlander Grogg blend, which has butterscotch, rum and caramel flavors.

THE WELL COFFEEHOUSE 8890 E. 116th St. Suite 120, Fishers This is another of my favorite places to work from. The Well recently expanded its menu and now offers lots of light, healthy options, which also happen to be delicious (curry chicken salad bowl, turkey pesto sandwich, etc.). The Well just rolled out its seasonal menu, with offerings like Somethin’ Pumpkin’ (pumpkin, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, ginger latte), Secret Garden (juniper, bergamot, lavender cold brew) and Black Cat (cinnamon, cayenne, charcoal mocha). If you want a taste of something you’ve never tried before, sample the Black Cat. It’s smooth, creamy

Winter market gets new mural By Renee Larr editorial@youarecurrent.com The Carmel Winter Farmers Market has a new look courtesy of a mural painted on the wall by artist Jules Muck. The marART ket is open Saturdays from Oct. 19 through March 28, 2020, at 610 3rd Ave. SW, in the old Woods Wire Building. Two small murals previously adorned the building. “The murals began to fade badly,” said Ron Carter, president of the Carmel Farmers Market. “Last spring, we determined one of the things we needed to do for this winter farmers market was to get the mural repainted or a new mural put in place.” That’s when fate intervened. Muck, a muralist and graffiti artist, was planning to be in Indianapolis working on commissioned pieces. “I had heard she was going to be in town, so I went to her website to contact her,” Carter said. “Within 45 minutes, she had gotten back to me saying she had time to complete the mural two days later. It all happened very quickly.” On Aug. 21, volunteers met with Muck to give feedback about the type of mural they

wanted to attract guests to the building. They watched while she worked. “They gave her some suggestions on where things might go and what colors might be best to use,” Carter said. “She came with an idea in mind. It was primarily her design but with our input to make sure it was right for the community.’ Muck finished the mural of rabbits and vegetables in one day.

Blueprint for Improvement: Basement has something for everyone Commentary by Larry Greene

After

Before

Background: Built in 2010, this home is in the Longridge Estates neighborhood on the west side of Carmel.

THE CHALLENGE The homeowners wanted to create a space that would be enjoyed by the whole family, including two kids who love to play video games and parents who enjoy entertaining and exercising at home. They also wanted to update the aesthetic of the basement to reflect the style of the rest of their home.

THE SOLUTION 1. The space was divided into a large entertainment area and a home gym. 2. The kids have their own space for playing multiplayer video games. It’s complete with two TV screens and cabinets for storage of consoles and games. 3. The barn doors that separate the living area from the exercise room feature innovative stops for soft-opening and soft-closing functionality. 4. Built-in shelves and cabinets display the homeowners’ collection of sports memorabilia; the glass barn doors below the TV are a fun tie-in to the fullsize doors in the room. 5. Custom wood planks behind the television were hand distressed on-site. To get started on your own remodeling project, visit us at caseindy.com or stop by one of our three locations.

Hit me with your pet shark Commentary by Curtis Honeycutt I’d love to be in a real band someday, if for no other reason but to come up with cool potential band GRAMMAR GUY names. Are you ready? Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Mondegreen! After a quick Google search, it appears as though both Mondegreen and The Mondegreens are already band names. All the good ones are taken. Because I don’t want to get in a legal battle with either band, I’ll just tell you about the term “mondegreen” instead. A mondegreen is a term for a misheard music lyric that you sing or hear instead of the correct lyrics. Writer Sylvia Wright coined the term in 1954 in an article for Harper’s Bazaar, in which she recounted a misunderstood song lyric from “The Bonny of Earl Murray.” Instead of the actual lyrics “...and layd him on the green,” Wright heard “and Lady Mondegreen.” I love mondegreens. Some notable mondegreens include lyrics from Jimi Hendrix’s song “Purple Haze.” “Excuse me while I kiss this guy” instead of “excuse

me while I kiss the sky” often is heard. Pretty much every line from Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” is easy to mishear. “Hold me close now Tiny Dancer” really does sound like “folding clothes with Tony Danza.” I’ve also heard people think this line said, “Happy birthday, private waxer” and “Hold me close, I’m tired of dancing.” Our brains hear these musical words and interpret them as whatever sounds make the most sense. That’s why, when we’re listening to a Pat Benetar hit, we’re prone to hearing “Hit me with your pet shark” instead of “Hit me with your best shot.” I think I like the “pet shark” line better. I could go on and on with examples of familiar mondegreens, but I want to take a moment to dub the already-knighted Elton John as the King of the Mondegreens. So, if you ever hear me going on about some guy named “Monty Green,” you may want to look up the lyrics to find out what I’m actually singing.
