Sound decisions: It’s all in the mix

By Katy Frantz • news@currentincarmel.com

The clink of ice against a glass, the tap of heels on pavement, and even the rustle of a shifting backpack are all sounds that Dick Hansen either enhances or mutes in his work as a sound producer music in filmmaking. “Good sound can make a slightly outof-focus shot go unnoticed,” he said. “But bad sound can really hurt a movie.” Having worked with sound for 40 years, Hansen, a resident of Carmel, has a finely tuned ear to notice even the smallest of sounds. “I record all the audio from when we are filming a scene,” he said. The dialogue is usually the most important part, but even scenes where there is no dialogue he still records sound to capture a cup being set on a table or a gun being cocked. Hansen doesn’t work from home, since all his work is done on the movie set, but his travel to the filming locations has at times included his family. When Hansen worked with the TV series “Lost,” his wife, Donna, and two children flew out to Hawaii. They also joined him for film productions in New Orleans and Atlanta. A typical day at work ranges from 12 to 14 hours. Hansen will arrive early to set up sound and prepare microphones. The work is challenging and can be dangerous at times, but Hansen says the food is always very good. Hansen says he “fell into the music business,” working with well-known bands like Aerosmith until he transferred over to a more stable job of doing sound production for film. From the time he began his work with sound in 1974 up to now, Hansen has seen a multitude of changes in how sound is mixed. In the past, sound mixers used a mono- or single-track system, where all sounds shared the same track. That meant they had to get the sound right the first time, or ask for a retake. Today every individual microphone is on a separate track, making changes easily managed. Though he considers himself a freelancer in the sound industry, Hansen never has been short on work. The films that he most enjoys working on are those that have a great story line that will last. That is why he applauds the completion of a recent film he worked on, “Dallas Buyers Club.” The feature details the true story of Ron Woodruff, an AIDS activist

Dick Hansen, a resident of Carmel, has 40 years of experience sound mixing in the music and film industry. His most recently completed film, “Dallas Buyers Club,” will be released on Nov. 1.

of the early 1990s. He considers the sound on “Dallas Buyers Club” a wonderful success, considering most of the sound came from improvised scenes and contained only about 15 minutes of music, mostly from jukeboxes in the background. “Dallas Buyers Club,” as with many of the films Hansen chooses to work on, is an independent film. Hansen sees the music and film industries changing to be more about the money than telling a good story. “It used to be more about filmmaking and now it’s a lot more about business,” Hansen said. He prefers to work with independent films, where it feels more like a team collaboration rather than a business-like setting. To Hansen, sound production is not a business. “It’s being a part of something that is going to last,” he said. “It may change people’s lives, change how they think about people and situations, or just have them laugh and have a good time.” Get To Know Dick Hansen Dick Hansen has been married 22 years to his wife, Donna. They have two children: Audrey, 14, a freshman at Carmel High School. Lars, 11, a sixth-grader at Creekside Middle School. • Favorite movie (that he didn’t work on): ”Harold and Maude” • Upcoming films: “Dallas Buyers Club” with Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto and “Wild” with Reese Witherspoon • Favorite director to work with: Clint Eastwood

Telephone scam – Sheriff Mark Bowen is warning residents of another possible scam currently in progress in Hamilton County. In the course of two days, a Fishers resident was called by different people claiming to work for the IRS and was told he had filed his taxes incorrectly for the past 10 years and if he did not pay a penalty, a warrant would be issued for his arrest. The complainant was asked to go to a grocery store and get a tax voucher to send money to the IRS for the penalty. If he did not comply a warrant would be issued for his arrest.

Spirituality Bob Walters ponders if God pulled a switcheroo. The Old Testament covenant of laws teaches important truths about both God and humans alike, such as God is good, creative, righteous and demands glory. What’s changed in the New Testament isn’t God; it is God’s new covenant of faith in Jesus Christ providing loving, flowing grace in the face of man’s many failures. Read more at currentincarmel.com.

City Council recap

Compiled by Karen Kennedy

What happened: Councilor Ron Carter announced that a revised version of Ordinance D-2137-13 (Multi-use path laws) has been adopted by the Parks, Recreation and Arts Committee and will be presented at the next council meeting. What it means: This ordinance has been in limbo as Judge Brian Poindexter and City Attorney Doug Haney could not come to terms on certain points in the ordinance. Poindexter was lobbying for allowing horses on the Monon Trail and doing away with the speed limit. Both Haney and Carter refused to consider any version of the ordinance which contained either of those two points.

What’s next: An equine-free version will have its first reading at the Nov. 4 council meeting.

What happened: Salaries for 2014 were approved for the Clerk Treasurer’s office, the city court, the city council, and all city employees. What it means: All salaries were increased by a standard 1.8 percent.

What’s next: This is the first increase the council has taken for itself in six years.

What happened: The following ordinances: The Support for the Arts Fund, Storm Water Utility, Extension of the Sunset Provision of the Range Line Road Overlay, Atapco PUD, Amendment of the C3 City Comprehensive Plan, and Illinois Street bonding were all read. What it means: All remain in their various committees.

What’s next: They will be considered again at the Nov. 4 council meeting.

What happened: Resolution CC-10-21-13-01: To set taxes payable in 2014 was passed. What it means: This sets the city’s tax rate with the state.

What’s next: Citizens are assured a level tax rate for 2014. No tax increase will occur.

Decorator showcase to benefit ATI By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

Vicky and Michael Earley of Artichoke Designs will be holding a showcase open house of their newly redesigned space at diversion 240 W. Main St. from 1 to 7 p.m. November 1 through 3. Proceeds will benefit Actor’s Theatre of Indiana. The Earleys have converted the space, which previously was their design studio, into a living space for themselves. “The theme of the show is ‘Living Large in a Small Space,’” said Vicky. “And because both visual and performance art are important to us and we are neighbors of ATI with our warehouse space, we thought it would be appropriate for this showcase to benefit them.” Members of ATI plan to be on hand to entertain periodically throughout the hours of the showcase, and designers will also be on hand to answer questions about the décor. The admission donation is $5.

One of the rooms in the new space is a “jazz lounge” which features indigo blue walls and Earley’s grand piano. (Photo by Karen Kennedy)

Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard has confirmed that both Les Olds, the former executive director of the Carmel RedevelopGovernment ment Commission, and CRC Operations Manager Matt Worthley have resigned effective Oct. 17. The resignations leave the CRC with no employees to manage its operations, developments or TIF revenues. The only remaining employee is Marketing and Promotions Manager Megan McVicker. “We should thank Les Olds for his many contributions to the planning and beautiful architecture in the Arts and Design District and City Center,” Brainard said. The city council did not renew Olds’ contract in August, citing inconsistent record keeping. However, Olds continued to attend meetings and was serving as an unpaid consultant. At its September meeting, the Carmel City Center Community Development Corp. could have approved a contract to hire Olds and loan him back to the CRC. City councilor and 4CDC board member Ron Carter recommended postponing the contract pending advice from an attorney. “I think it’s best that Les is not a department

head,” said City Councilor Luci Snyder, citing the findings of a recent audit report on the CRC that was conducted by the State Board of Accounts. “But I think he might have been valuable as an architectural consultant,” she said. Snyder had praise for Worthley. “He did the absolute best job he could, under the circumstances. He was quick to respond to requests for information and was very helpful in the transition process,” she said. Olds declined to comment for this story. Worthley stated that he “plans to pursue other opportunities,” but declined to elaborate on his future plans or the reasons behind his departure. 4CDC board president resigns Jessica Kruse, the newly appointed Olds president of the 4CDC, resigned Oct. 18 in an unrelated turn of events. Carter emphasized that Kruse’s resignation wasn’t tied to those at the CRC. “It was more work for her than she was prepared to take on,” he said, noting that Kruse had indicated to him that she planned to resign about four weeks ago. “She found that the workload associated with the 4CDC was greater than expected, and it was interfering with her performance at her full-time job,” city spokeswoman Nancy Heck stated.

Coats for Kids enters ninth year

By Chris Bavender • news@currentincarmel.com From 400 coats given away its first year, to close to 4,000 expected to be handed out this year - its nineth - Hamphilanthropy ilton County Coats for Kids ensures every child who needs a warm winter coat can get one. According to the Good Samaritan Network, 18,000 people in Hamilton County live below the poverty level. Half of those are children. “People don’t think of that for Hamilton County,” said Linda Withrow, one of the co-founders of Coats for Kids. “In the southern part of the county you have the working poor. They have two jobs and work really hard but in the end the paycheck is not quite enough for luxuries like a new winter coat. That is what we see a lot of.” This year’s event is 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Nov. 2 at Carmel United Methodist Church, 621 S. Range Line Rd. “So far we have about 1,500 coats but that is not unusual at this time and we expect to get another 1,500 this last week,” Withrow said. “This year we are really focusing on looking at what coats we have and signing people up in advance so we get an idea of needs in sizes, etc. We may have to supplement with some money we have from grants.” A wide range of sizes will be available.

“Kids come in all sizes, from brand new babies to high school students who play football who need a 3X-size jacket winter coat,” Withrow said. “We also try to give coats to the entire family, not just the kids.” Recipients don’t have to live in Hamilton County. While pre-registration has closed, coats will be available after 11 a.m. for those without appointments, according to Withrow. It takes about 400 volunteers to man the event. “We have a lot of people who will stay all day, including some who are clients who will come and work and then go get a coat because they find it’s just a great way to give back,” Withrow said. “Plenty of people also bring the coats back that they received last year. I like to refer to it as a giant freecycle. If it’s still in good condition they wash it and donate it back.” Other winter items such as mittens, snow pants, boots and scarves are also needed. All items can be donated at any sponsor church: Carmel United Methodist Church, Grace Community Church, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church, Aroma United Methodist Church and St. Mark’s United Methodist Church.

Downtown sculptures inspire Martinsville student By Chris Bavender • news@currentincarmel.com

INDIANAPOLIS—October 16, 2013—Stephen J. Helmich, president, announces that Brother Ken Haders, C.S.C., has been named vice president for mission integration at Cathedral High School. As part of the leadership of the 95-year-old Indianapolis institution and a member of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Brother Haders will help reinforce and communicate Holy Cross values in the day-to-day life of the school. Cathedral High School was founded by the Brothers of Holy Cross in 1918, the religious order created by Blessed Father Basil Moreau. The Brothers of Holy Cross are the first order of teaching brothers to be established in the United States. In 1842, the Brothers began the University of Notre Dame, and have been teaching in schools across the country and across the world since that time. In 2011, Cathedral High School formally re-affiliated with the Brothers of Holy Cross. Cathedral is one of 16 Holy Cross high schools in the United States. For the 17 years prior to his coming to Cathedral, Brother Ken Haders was president of Archbishop Hoban High School in Akron, Ohio. He held the same position at Holy Trinity High School in Chicago. Brother Ken is a member of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Midwest Province of Brothers. He has been provincial counselor with the Congregation, chief financial officer, delegate to the general chapter in Rome, and moderator of the district chapter in Ghana. Brother Ken earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame in addition to a master’s in social administration from Case-Western Reserve University.

Ty Vinson may live miles from Carmel but that hasn’t stopped the high school student from finding inspiration among the city’s Art sculptures. This inspiration led to a winning entry in a hometown art contest. “My cousin Tammy lives in Carmel and has always liked the sculpture of the sailor kissing the nurse (Unconditional Surrender). So, one day we were passing by it and I was just fascinated by it,” the 14-year-old freshman said. “I knew the annual chalk contest in Martinsville was coming up and she gave me the idea to do that (the statue).” “Ty first gave me a black and white chalk piece, which of course has a place on my wall,” Tamra Ross said. “He added his own creativity and put several subjects in the background, too. Then, he used that piece for this year’s sidewalk chalk contest in Martinsville.” Vinson won first place in in People’s Choice category and second place in the Most Original category. “You can use any color chalk you want but the original picture was in black and white so I decided to stay with that theme because I thought it looked nicer,” Vinson said. Vinson has always had an artistic side. “As long as I can remember I have always liked art – pretty much ever since I was a baby. They told me I used to always draw and paint,” he

said. “I just like the beauty of it – what you can do with art. It is my creative outlet.” Vinson said inspiration is all around him, he said. “I like to go outside and get ideas or I will look things up online and then draw them,” Vinson said. “I draw probably every day and have gone through 10 sketch books already in the last two years. Even in school I find myself doodling on the side of homework papers.” He credits Ross for being his cheerleader. “It really helps. Like I said, I’ve liked art pretty much all my life but I probably wouldn’t be as big into it as I am if it weren’t for Tammy,” he said. Vinson hopes his next trip to Carmel will lead to inspiration for yet another work of art.

Haunted House Last Day This Thursday

A new chapter in the life of this storied Carmel building could begin soon.

New life for Lotus Garden building By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

Range Line Road could soon see a new tenant. Minda Balcius of North Hill Realty Group confirmed that his Development investment group has purchased the longlanguishing “Lotus Garden” building at 1045 N. Range Line Rd. Balcius plans to clean up the building, upgrade the fixtures, remove the distinctive ornamental red attachments on the roof and find a suitable tenant. “I met with the city last week to see what kind of business they would like to see there; what would be allowed and not allowed,” Balcius said. “They’re pretty excited to know that something will be done with the building. The

only thing they said could not go in there is a car dealer or automotive store.” According to Balcius, the brick building has 9,068 finished square feet on the main level with an additional 4,000 square-foot partial basement. It is structurally sound and boasts a parking lot that can accommodate up to 170 cars. “The entrance is a little cumbersome but the location is great,” Balcius said. “It needs to be a destination spot.” Although a restaurant or microbrewery is an obvious choice, Balcius said that the kitchen could be easily removed or modified to general usable space if they chose to rent the building for use as a daycare, church, health care facility or sports-related business. Balcius plans to have the space ready for potential tenants to view by mid-November.

For a child battling cancer, it’s difficult some days to find anything to smile about. Life is a continuous round of philanthropy doctor appointments, treatments, and, more often than not, long stays in the hospital. That’s where Butler University student Liz Niemiec, 20, and the Little Wish Foundation come in. Little Wish does just that - grants little wishes to children with cancer. “There are many families that are so strapped with medical bills that they can’t afford to grant their child’s little wish,” Niemiec said. “Obviously I can’t help their case but I can do something little, yet in a big way.” Niemiec started the nonprofit foundation four years ago after a teacher’s 7-year-old son, Max, died from Wilm’s tumor, a rare type of kidney cancer. All Max wanted before he died was to have his own puppy. “I was just really inspired by Max, that someone so young could be taken by cancer,” Niemiec said. “I wanted to do something for other kids like Max. I told my mom I wanted to start a foundation and eventually it all fell into place.” Wishes range from $300 to $1,000 for items such as iPads, spa days, event tickets and laptops. To date, the Little Wish Foundation has granted more than 201 little wishes and raised more than $200,000.

To help continue to grant little wishes, the foundation will host a beer/wine tasting and dinner at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Mansion at Oak Hill. Tickets are $60 per person or $100 per couple. “For the first hour we will have local breweries and wineries on hand for the tasting leading into the dinner,” Niemiec said. “I just want everyone to come and have a great time and help us grant more wishes.” For more information visit www.littlewishfoundation.org or call 219-809-7653.

When the mechanics finish working on one of United Airlines’ jets, Mike Green climbs into the cockpit and does his job - testing the airplane to make sure it’s safe. profile Green is one of United Airlines’ flight test pilots who ensure the airline’s “friendly skies” are also safe by checking maintenance and making sure it’s done correctly. The work is no small task, considering United flies 700 airplanes to 1,000 destinations in 170 countries on six continents. Green’s schedule varies. One day he’ll check planes in Houston, the next in San Francisco, and a week later he’ll be in Hong Kong or Beijing. His father was an Air Corps pilot during World War II and flew the C-47 transport, loved and nicknamed the Gooney Bird by military fliers the world over. So it was not a stretch for Green to join the Air Force in 1979. After receiving his wings, he spent four years as a flight instructor before following his father’s flight path into cargo planes, flying, among other jobs, medical evacuation missions. Such flights, often under combat conditions, are highly demanding. On one flight, Green and his crew flew a medical team from the U.S. into a remote airfield in El Salvador to pick up a wounded American, and then to San Antonio, Texas, where the man was transferred to the military hospital. “It was a very long day,” Green said.

Local pilot, Mike Green, travels the world to test airplanes for United Airlines. (Submitted photo)

Green moved on from cargo pilot to test pilot, where he evaluated front line fighters and new cargo planes. After 16 years, Green left the Air Force with the rank of Major and accepted a job with Lockheed Martin in Marietta, Ga., where he met a young electrical engineer named Ann. The two were married in 1995 and moved to San Francisco where Green continued his flying career with United Airlines. One year later, Mike suffered an injury that would threaten his career. “An old neck injury flared up,” he said. “I began to lose strength in my arm, and I couldn’t move my fingers. I was frightened, out of work for three months and the doctors couldn’t figure out

what was wrong.” Desperate, Green, an active member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, turned to prayer. He found a specialist who diagnosed the problem and performed surgery to correct it. Green returned to work, but the experience made a lasting impact on him. “It was a miracle,” he says, “and now I try to surrender my life to God and pray that He will help me accept everything that happens.” Asked about close calls in the air, Green just smiles. “I’ve had to shut down an engine or two and make emergency landings,” he said. His favorite flying experience? “In test pilot school I got to fly an old C-47,” he said. “The plane my father flew.”

Local jeweler works with everything

St. Louis de Montfort Catholic School OPEN HOUSE

By Terri Spilman • news@currentincarmel.com The song tells us “diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” They also gave local jewelry artist Mark Grosser the ingenuity to live out his dream. The sign on Mark Grosser’s profile store reads “Jeweler,” however, a step inside reveals anything but a typical jewelry store. It’s more like an artist’s studio. The walls are filled with photos from 28 years as an official photographer for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and brightly colored abstract scenery from nightly walks in cities Grosser has visited while participating in art fairs. “I was a production jeweler at age 11 and didn’t even know it,” said Grosser. His neighbor worked in telecommunications and would give him copper wire to play with. He picked up an interest in twisting the wires together into different shapes, making jewelry that he handed out to friends at school. As a result of his interest in jewelry making, “I knew a little bit of nothing,” he said, adding he took a job as an apprentice with jewelry retailer Dave Downey. The job had a grueling travel schedule, putting him on the road for eight weeks at a time setting diamonds while the customer watched. There, he learned to make jewelry designs out of nothing. “I looked at jewels as a way to make money, to make a better living,” he said. “I always want-

Actors Theatre of Indiana to open its version of “The Odd Couple’ on Nov. 1

By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

What do an uptight, neurotic, clean freak newswriter and a carefree, worry-free, mess making sportswriter have in common? Other than the writing, apparently nothing. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find that cover story sometimes even polar opposites attract. We can all learn something from people who might not be our mirror image, but might be able to show us something about ourselves. “The Odd Couple” was written in 1965 by Neil Simon. The original Broadway production was directed by the legendary Mike Nichols and starred Walter Matthau as Oscar Madison and Art Carney as Felix Ungar. It garnered a Tony Award for Best Play and Best Direction of a Play as well as a Best Actor statue for Matthau. The role of the slovenly Madison has been played by such notables as Jack Klugman, Eugene Levy and Matthew Broderick, and the fastidious Ungar by Tony Randall, Martin Short, Nathan Lane and even Wheel of Fortune host, Pat Sajak. The enduring story has been made into both a movie (starring Matthau and Jack Lemmon) and a sitcom (starring Klugman and Randall). A short-lived female version of the show, starring Sally Struthers and Rita Moreno, appeared on Broadway in 1985. On Nov. 1, Actor’s Theatre of Indiana will bring the beloved characters of Oscar and Felix to life on the Studio Theater stage. The play is directed by Jeff Stockberger, sponsored

by Element212, and stars ATI artistic director Don Farrell as Oscar and Bradley Reynolds as Felix. Stockberger has been a staple on the Indianapolis-area theatre scene since returning to Indianapolis from New York City in 2002. A gifted character actor, he most recently played Franz in Beef & Board’s “The Sound of Music” and will portray Scrooge in their upcoming production of “A Christmas Carol.” He has appeared with ATI in “Forbidden Broadway” and “Gypsy.” “This is a faithful rendition of the original stage play,” Stockberger said. “I’m treating it as a period piece, and it takes place in 1965. We pay homage to the movie as well. I want people to feel as if they’re seeing it for the first time, again.” “‘The Odd Couple’ is the first of the mismatched roommate stories,” he continued. “And it happened during a time when divorce was really just starting to be acknowledged, and certainly that story had not yet been told from a male perspective. There is humor in the story, but it was hard for these guys.” Reynolds, an Indianapolis native, returns to Indiana from New York for his role in “The Odd Couple.” He acts and produces on Broadway and London. He produced Broadway’s “Title of Show” and the revival of “West Side Story,” and in 2010 he was nominated for both a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award for producing the revival of

“Ragtime.” “I love this show,” Reynolds said. “It’s the quintessential Neil Simon play. It’s funny, but the characters also learn from each other and grow by the end of the show. When Oscar says to Felix, ‘You’re my best friend,’ he really means it, and even though they can’t get along living together, they each make the other a better person.” “And interestingly, we’re going right out of this show and into rehearsals for “Frog and Toad,” which is another relationship piece, and our characters are actually kind of similar. That’s a show for the whole family, and it’s about appreciating each other’s differences,” Reynolds said. Farrell concurs. “Bradley and I have been friends in real life for so long, and we have each been each other’s Felix or Oscar over the years.” According to Reynolds, Farrell is ideally cast as the incorrigible Oscar, which brings a hearty laugh but no denial from Farrell. “Let’s just say that I do embrace my inner Oscar,” Farrell said. “You should see my house right now.” Other cast members include: Carrie Fedor and Katy Gentry as the British Pigeon sisters who live upstairs, and Adam Crowe, Jeremy Grimmer, Darrin Murell and Dave Ruark as the poker buddies. If You Go: The Odd Couple runs Thursday through Sunday, through November 17. Tickets are available at: 669-7983 or at www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.com.

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP There’s no one but ourselves to blame

Hold your horses It is our position that recreational horseback riding should not be allowed on the Monon Trail. On a daily basis, a combination of more than 4,000 runners, walkers, bicyclists and rollerbladers struggle to exist in harmony while navigating a mere 10 to 15 foot wide asphalt trail. The proposed addition of horseback riders to the mix will undoubtedly stir up nothing but trouble on the trail. As the cowboy saying goes, “If it has tires, testicles or hooves, you are going to have problems with it.” If a darting squirrel on the trail can cause a dog to flee, stroller to squeal and bike to skid, imagine the presence of a 1,000 pound animal in the middle of the bustling city who is happiest when running through a field and not confined to a slow gallop in a crowd. Recreational use of paved public trails is an outstanding benefit and an extremely enjoyable attribute of living in the community. It is not unreasonable to pass an ordinance clarifying reasonable speed limits, rules of the road and cleanliness for the safety of paved public trail users. It is unreasonable to complicate the issue by letting the horse out of the barn.

All in the family Commentary by Terry Anker As much as some people like to complain about our imperial city, Washington, D.C., I tend to find it, like the European capitals it is designed to emulate, much like the American ethos. It is at once aspiring to what is perhaps an unattainable, maybe even mythological, desire to live an egalitarian utopia; and, it envies the grandeur and power of monarchs represented by rows of imposing stone buildings and the grand palais of the ruling classes. The city itself is beautifully designed as a tourist attraction and a symbol of dominion. Work there can be challenging but the outsized salaries, luxurious benefits and abundant prestige more than offset the inconvenience of long commutes and extortionate cost of living. D.C.’s suburban communities in Maryland led to that state being named the wealthiest in America. But the mix of money and power, like chum in the water, tends to attract a certain kind of fish. Overhearing a conversation about government spending in a D.C. restaurant between me and a

longtime but politically opposite friend, another diner determined to participate in our polite exchange. The interloper, apparently charged by a disagreement with his much younger female companion and likely one whiskey too many, ultimately expressed his frustration by saying, “You business people are all alike - you all think that government should be run like a business.” “No,” I replied, “government should be run like we run our families.” Isn’t it possible to be fiscally responsible without lacking compassion? Isn’t it possible to match our desire to give with our ability to do so? Isn’t it as harmful to spoil as to starve? Can’t we share power with our spouse, find and even seek compromise knowing that ours is a shared course and that we are better served for traveling together?

- Eleanor Roosevelt

Further proof that our government is way too big and incredibly out of control: What Were We Thinking? (Part I): No huge surprise to us, but members of Congress are routinely using campaign coffers as personal “slush funds,” according to “60 Minutes.” They’re called “Leadership PACs” to fund trips to high-roller golf courses, NFL games and other destinations – and are even personally making money off the PACs by lending to them and charging steep interest. Perhaps we shouldn’t complain about it; we’re all guilty of putting these people in office. Don’t vote for any incumbent in the coming congressional elections. Wipe Congress clean on both sides of the aisle. Maybe a fresh start will bring a fresh approach. And maybe Santa will bring us everything on our list, too? We can always hope. ••• What Were We Thinking? (Part II): Yet another strike by unionized transit workers, this time in the Bay Area of California. BART workers struck recently for the second time this year. This is what certain leaders want to bring to Indiana? If government is behind it, this is exactly what we’ll get. Vote down government-backed mass transit at your first opportunity. The private sector needs to own and operate it. ••• What Were We Thinking? (Part III): We ran into a local resident at a gathering recently, and he related to us the story of his visit, as a resident, to London’s finest hospital, which he described as high end. “Their best X-ray equipment is at least 30 years older than anything in the U.S. That’s their best. This is what socialized medicine is going to mean to us eventually.” ••• What Were We Thinking? (Part IV): Based on latest U.S. Census data, 49.2 percent of Americans benefit from at least one form of entitlement. Change!

I’m in a scary mood these days Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Two days before Halloween, and what’s the scariest thing at our house? My bad mood. I am currently struggling through my humor sixth lousy day in a row thanks to sleep deprivation, hormones and a bit of anxiety thrown in for funsies. Sunday morning was typical of the last week: I yelled at my kids on the way to church, at church, and after church, despite my numerous Hail Mary’s for patience, and then lit into to my husband for raking leaves without consulting me. Did someone just drop a house on my sister? My biggest issue is the not sleeping. I chalk this up to my “advanced maternal age” and perhaps a reduction in my thyroid meds. Stress is also contributing to my vampire-like nights, as work and chauffeur duties have become overwhelming. I wake up at 3 a.m. and can’t stop worrying about the logistics of life as a working mom. Between teaching 10 hours a day and driving four kids all of over the city every evening, I barely remember to shower. Forget about good parenting. I’ve been so exhausted by 8 p.m. that I am incapable of helping with homework or bedtime. Truly frightening. Yesterday my youngest laid this one on me: “I forgot my school folder because you weren’t here to remind me! All the other kids have mom-

mies who stay at home!” She even squeezed out a tear, the little devil. I’ve been back to work for three years now, so I can’t totally blame my job for recent grouchiness. I actually enjoy going to school every day, even if it’s just to have a space to myself that actually stays clean after I leave. However, working with 175 teenagers is exhausting; lately I’ve had little left for my own kids. Talk about the walking dead. Honestly, I’ve even reconsidered pharmaceutical assistance. A few years ago I tried Prozac to combat the moodiness, but I didn’t like the flat feeling. I wasn’t depressed, but I can’t say I was happy either. But maybe flat is better than evil. The good part is that like a werewolf, my transformation is temporary. By next week, I’ll be back to myself again. The hormones will chill, I’ll be able to catch some z’s, and life will look brighter. I just have to figure out how to survive until then without my children or Doo shipping me off to the asylum. Although, after six days of acting like the Wicked Witch of The Neighborhood, a “facility” might be the perfect place to enjoy Halloween. Peace out.

Shop Talk

Pink sign: Here comes Armageddon! Commentary by Jason Peek Government’s shutdown, Russian meteors, wars, human trafficking, chemical weapons, crooked politicians, rising debt limit, school shootings, murders every night, stolen children put in basements, scandal after scandal… and then it all explodes! That’s right. We have a business in Carmel’s Arts & Design District with a pink sign. A PINK SIGN! What are we to do? It doesn’t even go with our color scheme here. Wow. What’s next? Cats and dogs living together? Mass hysteria? Anarchy! Surely you’ve heard all about it. Carmel City Councilman Ron Carter, “Decorator of the Year,” I guess is upset that the new business, Carmel Couture, is not going along with his vision of how this city should look. After the 20 of us in the Main St. Barber Shop got done wiping away the tears of laughter, we focused on this issue but unfortunately I can’t write down most of what was said, this being a family newspaper and all, but it seemed the guests in the shop were not worried about this deep issue but more of filling empty spaces, Carmel Redevelopment Commission debt and road construction. To see our city in the news for this joke of an issue is embarrassing and a waste of time.

Most thought the pink sign stood out and were glad to see a new business come to the district town instead of one leaving. Maybe we can harass all the new businesses that come in and make them feel welcome. Maybe we can start telling people to not put vinyl siding on their houses and have it look the way the city wants it. Heck, we should just tell Detour to not have live music on the weekends because three people are upset… and you know who you are. Oh, wait; we already do that. Let’s focus on important stuff, not personal taste. This is just rude to our new neighbors and to top it off its Breast Cancer Awareness month, when pink means something. Hope everyone doesn’t come unglued when I put camo ground blind material in my windows to celebrate hunting season. Jason Peek is the owner of the Main Street Barber Shop.

Imagine finding yourself stranded in the forest with no food or water. Or caught in an avalanche, freezing to death behumor neath a mountain of snow. Sounds scary, doesn’t it? You would have absolutely nothing to worry about if you were wearing your Paracord Survival Bracelet. (Also required: a cell phone, your GPS, warm blankets, a week’s supply of food and a Coleman stove.) Yes, this is the hottest thing in survival gear since the lit match. The bracelet is made of 90 feet of intricately woven thread crafted into a nifty piece of rope jewelry. The material was first used in World War II by paratroopers. The manufacturer describes it as having a “32-strand woven nylon outer sheath with an inner core of seven 2-ply yarns.” I know, I know, it sounds a lot like Charmin. Here are three uses suggested by the manufacturer: 1. Replace a broken zipper pull: Nothing would be more embarrassing than being rescued after 12 days on a deserted island and being caught with your fly open. 2. Detain a person: When you are shipwrecked in the middle of nowhere and help finally comes, isn’t that the first thing you’d think about? Who do I need to tie up? 3. Fishing Line: “Our white cord will rarely catch fish in clear water,” admits the bracelet company, “but you may have a

chance in murky water if you have stink bait and a hook.” Not a problem. A lot of hikers who forgot to bring even one protein bar have a jar of chicken guts and beef liver in their backpack. The manufacturer is concerned that people will not want to use the rope in an emergency because making it back into a bracelet is harder than solving the Rubik’s Cube with your feet. The makers of the Paracord Survival Bracelet will give you a free one if you use their product in a legitimate emergency. Simply send them the story of how you used the rope along with a photograph demonstrating the life-threatening predicament you were in. Dear Survival Bracelet Maker, My wife and I were recently cleaning the gutters on our roof when the ladder tipped over. As I helped her repel down the side of our house using your nifty piece of jewelry, I tried to get my cell phone out of my pocket to send a picture, thus qualifying for a free replacement. I was too slow but I am attaching a photo of her on the ground with two broken legs. Personally, I think this bracelet is a waste of money at $39.95. Better not safe, than sorry.

Chilly weather is perfect for chili Commentary by Mike Redmond

The recent change in the weather (it turned into autumn somehow) means it is time to once again discuss all things seasonal, starting with food. By that I mean chili. I am what is politely (or perhaps humor non-politely) known as a chili-head. This is another way to say I am extremely fond of chili and would eat it five nights a week if possible, saving the other two nights for ham and beans or chicken and noodles. Why? Because chili is amazing. It takes a little from each of the major food groups - the meat group, the vegetable group, the hot sauce group and the grease group. For some, it also draws from the legume group and even (gack) the macaroni group. More about those mistakes in a minute. First, let us concede that chili is very close to being the perfect food, especially at this time of year. It tastes good in almost every incarnation from mild to blazing hot. It warms you body and soul, as only comfort foods can. If you are the kind of person whose personal digestive plumbing has a limited capacity to handle chili’s ingredients, it can offer hours of evening entertainment until the rest of the family asks you to please step outside if you’re going to keep doing that. You can always blame the beans, which are a fixture in Midwestern chili. I used to think chili was incomplete without them until I went to Texas and had chili there.

It was a revelation. I had been used to a tomato-y concoction with plenty of beans (kidney, mostly) and now I was being presented with a bowl of red meat and peppers with just enough liquid to qualify as a stew. It was fabulous. I became an instant convert and for years preached fiery sermons in which I railed about imposter Midwestern chili and urged everyone to try the real thing, Texas style, sans beans. I’ve modified my viewpoint somewhat and come back to an appreciation for Midwestern chili. I’ll actually go either way on chili now. I like to think of myself as coming down on the side of chili diversity. I do have to draw the line at throwing in macaroni. It’s very common in Indiana. I think it probably began as a way to stretch a pot of chili to feed more people or was supposed to bear a strong resemblance to Midwestern goulash, which is nothing more than bland chili with even more macaroni in it. As the leaves turn and the air takes on a new coolness, give me what Will Rogers called “the bowl of blessedness,” a bowl of honest red chili, with a fistful of saltines on the side. Ah, chili on an autumn afternoon. It is blessedness indeed. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline. com or P.O.

“Who was it?”

By Nate Albin

One stormy fall evening just before Halloween, Nate, J.T, and Colin were having a sleep over at Nate’s house. After playing outside, they started to watch the Arizona State – Oregon game. As they got comfy, a large boom was at the window! They ran quickly to Nate’s dad, pushing each other out of the way. “Dad! Dad! We heard a huge noise outside!” “Maybe it was the Headless Horseman,” Nate’s dad said with a deep smile. “Turn around. Go back to bed. It’s all good.” A little less rattled, the boys turned around and walked slowly back to bed. Lights out. Comfy. Asleep. CRACK! BOOM! SMASH! Awake suddenly, they ran quickly, again, to Nate’s dad, pushing each other, again, out of the way. This time, Nate’s dad wasn’t there.

“The Horror” By S. Robert Darbro “There are monsters everywhere!” gasped Linda French, her timid left hand trembling at her throat as she peered out the living room window. “Please don’t talk of the neighbors like that, sweetest,” offered her husband Edgar from behind his hunting catalog. A horrifying realization emerged slowly. “Wait,” he yelped snapping his head to glance at the wall clock. The hands of the timepiece were clawing downward like a gravedigger’s spade unearthing an unholy terror. “Oh no! It’s 5:30 p.m.! I never made it to the store to buy the candy!” Hyperventilating, he glared at the catalog, silently blaming it for his dalliance. He leaped from his chair and dashed for his coat. “Perhaps if I hurry I can return before the -” Edgar’s shallow hopes were murdered by the cold fright of the doorbell. “It’s too late! We are surrounded!” Linda shrieked. She hid her petri-

“We must go see what that is!” Nate said. “But it’s unsafe!” Colin said. “We might have this chance only once. I say we go for it!” J.T. said. They got three flashlights. And when they got outside they felt the gusts of wind push them backward. The rain was so strong it was hard to see. Luckily it was just howling wind and pounding rain. No thunder. No lightning. But if there was no thunder and no lightning, where did the ‘crack, boom and smash’ come from? The boys shined their flashlights into each other’s faces, and without saying a word, they turned and went down the muddy, slippery, steep hill into the woods. Clonk-idy. Clonk-idy. CLONK! “That might be a good sign,” Nate said very, very quietly. “Let’s keep walking!” whispered Colin. “Its 11:45!” said J.T., and the three of them turned around and started walking back up the fied eyes behind her elbow, refusing to look at the dreadfulness gathering out the window on their front step. Beyond the painted glass of the front door, ominous half-sized silhouettes swayed impatiently. Edgar knew he could never make it to the store before this motley group would cast judgment. He momentarily considered abandoning Linda and fleeing to the neighbor’s backyard tree fort. The doorbell chimed a second time, a grim toll foretelling of the coming nightmare that would soon befall their yard. Outside the door, the silhouettes had doubled. A miniature fist rapped at the glass. “Trick-or-treat, Mr. and Mrs. French. We know you are in there,” called out a disembodied and sinister pre-pubescent voice. “They know we are here!” whispered Linda hoarsely. She fell to her knees weeping. “The yolk never washes off!” Edgar made for the pantry in a hysterical gal-

muddy, slippery and very steep hill. Swoosh! Swoosh! SPLICE! The sword of the Headless Horseman brushed right past the tops of their heads. Yikes! For the minute that they had to think, they needed to remember what they’d heard about the Headless Horsemen. Think … think… think… “Hey, guys! Remember the old Disney version?” “Quick, tell us! We can’t maneuver much more!” Colin exclaimed. “We have to cross the bridge!” “The bridge is very, very, very far away. We can’t possibly make it in time!” J.T. screeched. “We will make it if we go … now! Go now!” Nate screamed. After a trip back home, they went straight to sleep. When they woke up, they found Nate’s dad in the kitchen, “Ok, Dad, we know you dressed up.” “What are you boys talking about?” lop, falling over the end table and Linda’s crocheting basket. “Don’t quit on me now, woman!” screeched Edgar in an eruption of spittle. In the pantry he tore edibles from the shelf in madness. The doorbell rang for a third time. Time was running out. At length, his sweaty hands found a grotesquely enormous tub of peanut butter that Linda had insisted on buying at the wholesale grocery mart. He wrapped his arms tightly around it, clinging to it like a life preserver. ‘Ants on a Log’ would be his salvation. Linda was in fetal position shaking from fright on the living room floor. “Get up and start cutting celery! Where’s the raisins?!?” screamed Edgar but it was already too late. As morning broke on November first, the horror of ghostly toilet paper floated like phantom death shrouds among the terrible gore of grotesquely smashed eggs upon the edifice of the French’s house and their premature Christmas decorations.

LuPone to perform at Palladium

By Dawn Pearson • news@currentzionsville.com

From her first acting memory of her “trouping her out,” imitating Marilyn Monroe for guests she was 3 or 4 years old, concert two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone has portrayed some of Broadway’s most memorable leading ladies, including Mama Rose in “Gypsy,” Mrs. Lovett in “Sweeney Todd,” Eva Perón in “Evita,” and Fantine in the original London cast of “Les Miserables.” LuPone spoke about her life and career and about her upcoming performance in Carmel over the phone. “I vividly remember my first performance as Marilyn Monroe, I would be very coy, have something drop off my shoulder and duck out my lips,” LuPone said. Her biography is filled with roles she’s played, but surprisingly enough she doesn’t have a favorite. “I have a favorite nothing, there’s too much to see and I don’t want to limit myself. There’s just too much to experience,” she said. Though LuPone has never been to Carmel, she does have a very close Hoosier connection. Her husband Matt Johnstom hails from Kokomo, Ind. LuPone was thrilled with the chance to perform at the Palladium. Her following performance is at Carnegie Hall, so performing in Carmel will be “giving us the oppor-

tunity to put the whole thing together with staging, lighting and costumes. Carmel will be our testing ground,” she said. LuPone said it’s exciting and nerve wracking too. “Our performance in Indiana is the maiden voyage for the second act of “Far Away Places.” “I’m in the right profession for this show. It’s not just about geography but about time. The songs will reflect the places I’ve been to and want to go,” she said. “The music is a combination of very eclectic and interesting music. It’s very beautiful music.” LuPone added that she is grateful to the bookers for bringing the show to Carmel, and promises it’s worth the excitement. LuPone is also staring in the third season of the popular FX series “American Horror Story: Coven.” The series focuses on rivaling groups of witches and LuPone portrays Joan Ramsey, a religious next-door neighbor, going up again Jessica Lange’s character, Fiona, who is the lead witch. While she’s batting down witches, LuPone will take the Palladium stage for a special performance of “Far Away Places,” a travelogue of styles and stories that explores the actress’s insatiable wanderlust and includes songs by Kurt Weill, Cole Porter and Edith Piaf. The performance is 7p.m. Nov. 3. To purchase tickets visit www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

New musical a strike

By Nancy Edwards • nancy@youarecurrent.com

A new musical about bowling, relationships, tragedy and victory is certain to strike with attendees looking for a unique, knee-slapping good time. TEN PIN ALLI, written by awardtheatre winning playwright and Fishers resident Ashton Wolf, and Diana De Prez, a music director and vocal coach, will premiere at Carmel Community Players on Nov. 1. The show centers on a character named Alli, a gifted bowler whose boyfriend, bowler extraordinaire Bernie Bostock, has been killed in a motorcycle crash. Alli, whose nickname is “Ten Pin Alli,” in an ode to her exceptional bowling skills, is planning to replace Bernie on her team in the annual city-wide tournament. The problem? This tournament is for men only, and Alli must disguise herself as a man in order to roll on the team. Original songs reflect Alli’s journey in the musical, including “The Man in Me,” when she dresses up as a man; “Ghost,” when Bernie makes an appearance from the afterlife; and “Grandma’s Teeth,” (a bowling reference when gaps are left between pins). Bernie Hirsch, who plays Bernie in TEN PIN ALLI, recorded all the music for the production. He said he believes the musical will appeal to a wide range of audience members, not just bowling fans. “It’s not just a story about bowling, it’s about love, lust, and self-empowerment - especially for

women,” he said. “It’s a contemporary show, it’s timely and I think it’s going to be a great time for audiences who give it a shot.” Wolf added that viewers can look forward to some amazing cast performances as well, and credited De Prez and his wife, Sandy, a producer for the show. “I can’t tell you how fortunate I am to be working with such unbelievable talent,” he said. Wolf also gave thanks to Carmel Repertory Theater for donating space for rehearsals. Proceeds for the musical will go toward funding for Carmel Community Players. For more information, please visit www.tenpinalli.com.

If you go: TEN PIN ALLI will show Nov. 1 through 3 and Nov. 8 through 10 at Carmel Community Players, 14299 Clay Terrace Blvd., Suite 140, Carmel. Friday and Saturday performances will start at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday shows begin at 5 p.m. Tickets for adults are $15; students and senior tickets are $12.

PB & J with a side of Schricker

By Terri Spilman • news@currentincarmel.com

What do you get when you cross the catchy tunes of hipster Dan Zanes with the playful, insightful poetry of Shel Silverconcert stein? The answer is Indiana’s own storyteller, George Schricker, who will be entertaining families at the Palladium’s upcoming Peanut Butter & Jam Saturday morning music series at 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 2 in the Robert Adam Room. Schricker’s interactive performance is targeted to families with children ages 1 to 7. Though he doesn’t like to lock himself into anything, the audience will likely be treated to his classic doalong songs like “Oo oo Doodily Doo” and “Never Hurt Anyone” to “Archaeopteryx” – a fun song about dinosaurs based on his love of English music hall tunes - all from his popular album, “George’s Brother.” Raised with a deep tradition of storytelling, the Plymouth, Ind., native is the grandson of twotime Indiana Governor Henry S. Schricker and has performed at storytelling festivals and for museum audiences across the country. He also teaches a very popular storytelling workshop for children and adults called, “The Story Inside.” Schricker’s music and his storytelling workshops are fun and contemplative at the same time. According to Schricker, “Life isn’t about endless entertainment; it’s about learning to love ourselves and the gifts we’ve been given - even

in the midst of a thousand distractions.” “Don’t Let Them Take Your Brain Away” is a song about “the importance of spending time alone, by yourself, not with boatloads of distractions: TV, video games, parties, or too much planned anything.” The Peanut & Butter Jam music series covers nine musical genres over nine months and according to John Hughey, Director of External Relations at the Palladium, it’s life-changing to experience music together as a family. “Nothing compares to fostering the love of music – and especially live music. I love seeing parents dancing and singing with their children – so beautiful.” Attendance has grown at each Peanut Butter & Jam series event so families are encouraged to buy tickets early.

Girls on the Run Hamilton County will host its inaugural 5K run/walk at 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 16 at Saxony in Fishers. This event will fitness bring together girls, their families and the community to celebrate the end of the three-month long characterbuilding program. GOTR teaches life skills to girls in third through eighth grade with interactive lessons and running games. “Girls on the Run is not a running program, it’s an international program teaching confidence and self-esteem. Girls all come together and learn how to deal with all sorts of life issues, including peer pressure, learning to be confident and a whole host of life’s lessons,” Laura Musall, member of GTOR board of directors in Hamilton County said. “The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness,” said Hollie Nicholson, co-founder of GOTR Hamilton County and 5K run director. “That accomplishment comes in all flavors and everyone who participates - whether they run, walk, hop, skip or cartwheel across the finish line - is to be honored and congratulated.” GOTR Hamilton County is part of the international nonprofit program and began with 15 girls at one school. In four years it has expanded to

Smartphones can cause you pain Commentary by Dr. Joseph Stockwell

Expires 11/30/2013

We’re in an age of constant technology and our phones follow us wherever we go. Our laptops fill in the gaps, and even wellness the newer tablets and ereaders have their place in our constant need for connection. Most people applaud these new advances, keeping in step with creating “the world at your fingertips;” however, there’s a very downside to the constant use of these new technologies that most people never think about: the physical toll looking down at a screen or phone has on our body. We’re spending more time on our “smart” devices which means we’re spending more time in unnatural positions that are harmful to our overall health. Staring down at a screen for hours can lead to what I like to call “broken posture.” “Broken posture” occurs when your head leans forward from your body to make it easier to gaze into the screen of the device. Your spine is no longer straight, your neck is bent and your shoulders are pulled forward to compensate for the slouch in your back. Your head weighs the same as a bowling ball, around 10 to 15 lbs. When you look down at your device – thanks to the laws of physics – you’re increasing the weight of your head by around 30 lbs. That’s like wearing a necklace with three bowling balls attached to it every time you’re on

your device. This broken posture reduces your lung capacity which lowers the amount of oxygen you can bring into your body. This can lead to headaches, migraines, fatigue, irritability and overall decreased mental function. It’ll create tension in the back of your head, neck and shoulders, which can spread to your back and hips. It can also put added pressure onto your cardiovascular system creating symptoms such as numbness, tingling, fatigue and high blood pressure. How can we fix this problem besides tossing out the phones? Start becoming aware of the position you’re in at all times. The next time you use your device, think about your posture. Straighten your back, pull your shoulders back slightly, and lift your chin up as if you were talking to a real person. Another way is to adjust the height of your monitors or phones to make sure you’re looking straight on at the screens. If you’re already in pain, taking medicines can help, but usually positional pain like this needs to be corrected by a board certified chiropractor, who can reposition your neck into proper alignment. Dr. Joseph Stockwell is a chiropractic physician who is the owner and clinic director of Indy’s Atlas: Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Zionsville. He may be reached at drjosephdc@hotmail.com.

Crust: A taste of Napoli in Carmel KEITH ALBRECHT By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com

Giant, fragrant basil leaves fan out over oozing fresh mozzarella. The house-made sauce pops with flavor from just enough garlic and good quality tomatoes. This is pizza now open for grown-ups. And then there’s the crust. There’s a reason the place is named for it. The dough is made daily from the best quality flour available and it’s fired in a 700-degree stone oven before it’s whisked to your table. Everything on the menu is available for carryout, but food this fresh is best eaten right away. Crust Pizzeria Napoletana opened its doors in September. The 98-seat restaurant has an urban feel; the walls are covered with reclaimed barn wood and stone. Chef/Owner Mohey Osman has a wealth of experience in the restaurant business in Indianapolis and beyond. Of Egyptian descent, Osman moved to the U.S. in 1997 and opened a pizza place in Washington, D.C. After moving with his wife to Indianapolis, he opened the Egyptian Café and Hookah Bar in Broad Ripple. When the smoking ban was put in place Osman began looking for a new project. He fell in love with the Carmel location on the south end of the Shoppes on Old Meridian (previously Grinders) and began to renovate the space in 2012, doing much of the work himself. “I love to cook.

Top-investor threats list expanded news@currentzionsville.com

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson has expanded the annual listing of nefarious financial products, practices finances and services that threaten to trap unsuspecting investors to include lurking dangers facing small business owners. “With the delayed rollout of rules required by the JOBS Act, investors and small business owners alike must be on heightened alert for questionable Lawson investment offers and services,” Lawson stated. Lawson said she is worried the recent lifting of an 80-year-old ban on the advertising of private offerings, mandated by the JOBS Act, will lead to greater abuse by unscrupulous promoters. The implementation of the JOBS Act also has created opportunities for unregulated third parties to provide ancillary services. “Whether you are using a crowd funding portal or an accredited investor aggregator, it is important to do your due diligence and to understand that use of an unregulated third party to provide such services does not change your obligations under federal and state securities laws,” Lawson stated. “Investors are not alone in their potential to be scammed. Using a fraudulent portal means both the business and the investor stand to lose.”

Know more – The 2013 list of the Top 10 financial products and practices that threaten to trap unwary investors and small business owners include: Persistent threats - private offerings, real estate investment schemes, high-yield investment and Ponzi schemes, affinity fraud, scam artists using self-directed IRAs to mask fraud, and risky oil and gas drilling programs; New investor threats – proxy trading accounts and digital currency; and New small business threats – capitalraising pitfalls and unregulated third-party service providers. Source: North American Securities Administrators Association Enforcement Section

Lawson reminded investors to independently verify any investment opportunity as well as the background of the person and company offering the investment. The Secretary of State’s Securities Division provides detailed background information about those who sell securities or give investment advice, and about the products being offered. “You wouldn’t trust your health to an unlicensed doctor, so why jeopardize your financial health by trusting your hard-earned money to an unlicensed broker or investment adviser?” Lawson stated.

Dig a little deeper

Commentary by Kristen Boice

Do you look outside of yourself to feel better and find worthiness? Do you think if I look better, make more money, have a bigger house, lose weight, drive a nicer car, relationships I would be happier and feel good enough? We live in a society that places value on appearance, material items, how much money we make and the cars we drive. We look outside of ourselves for worth and value. This truly is a black hole and a moving target. It ends up being an empty well that never gets filled up. Everyone wants to feel like we matter, we are loved and important. Worthiness does not come from outside of you. It is an inside job. It has to come from within. If we spent more time looking deeper within, we can start to explore the blocks preventing us from feeling worthy. Are you ready to dig deeper? Below are a few steps to begin feeling better about who you are: 1. Notice your pattern. What are you doing to gain worthiness? Are you placing a high value on external things or your image? Awareness is the first step to changing it. We can’t change what we don’t see. 2. Identify your negative beliefs. What are the beliefs you have about yourself? I am not good enough. I am stupid. I am ugly. I am a failure. These are statements that

keep you from believing you are worthy. They keep you stuck. When we identify them, we can begin to change them. 3. Change your self-talk. This truly does make a difference. Start telling yourself, “I am smart. I am beautiful. I am worthy. I matter.” No one else is going to do this for us. We are our own worst enemy sometimes. We treat ourselves poorly, which brings us down. We need to be lifting ourselves up. 4. Create meaningful connections. Research shows that when we have meaningful connections (even just one), then we feel more valued, loved and worthy. Step out of your comfort zone to reach out and make deeper conversations with others. Get curious about who they are and what they feel passionate about. 5. Ask for help and support. Many of us were taught growing up that it is weak to ask for help. It’s actually the opposite. It represents strength and courage. A support network is essential to healing and growth. It starts by reaching out. You are worth it.

Expert tricks, tips for costumes Commentary by Jodi Morgan

As the head of special effects makeup at Indy Scream Park, I turn regular people into creepy characters like zombies, Halloween clowns and even zombie clowns throughout the Halloween season. In my position, I tend to get a lot of questions from family and friends about how to ensure a victory at their next costume party. I thought I would share some tricks for fun costume and makeup ideas. Here are some of my most frequently asked questions: How did you learn how to do scary makeup? I took some stage makeup classes when I was at Purdue University and have taken a few special effects makeup classes, but you can learn a lot of fun makeup tricks on the Internet. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube. Where do you buy Halloween makeup? We use professional products at Indy Scream Park, but I also really like Party City. They have a huge range of reasonably priced products and makeup kits that are available year-round. You can also use regular street makeup in creative ways. There are lots of techniques that use random household products like Knox Gelatin and Elmer’s Glue. What kinds of makeup tools are best? We use a lot of brushes of all sizes for our makeup - from paint brushes to fine-tipped artist brushes - but we also use basic makeup wedges

and cotton swabs. Where is the best place to buy Halloween costumes? Again, Party City has a huge selection of ready-made costumes, but there are great ideas on the Internet. I love the website www.spoonful.com. They have lots of great costume ideas, including punny costumes. My favorite this year? Cover yourself with foliage from the dollar store, add a string of pearls and a name tag that says, “My Name is Barbara” and you have … wait for it … Barbara Bush. How long does it take to do Halloween makeup? It can take as long as you want or need. At Indy Scream Park, our team has to make up 150 actors in two and a half hours. We have three to five minutes on average for each person. Don’t be afraid to wipe it off and start over if you don’t like how it looks. Baby wipes are awesome for taking off makeup. As I always tell my makeup students, start with less. You can always add more but it is really hard to take makeup away after it is applied. I hope that I gave you some good ideas. Have a fun, safe, amazing Halloween! Jodi Morgan is head of special effects makeup at Indy Scream Park, 5211 S. New Columbus Rd., Anderson. For more information, visit www. indyscreampark.com.

C AR I NG • P ROTECTION • H E ALI NG

Step back into 19th Century in Cuba Commentary by Donald Knebel With the increased availability of authorized “people to people” travel to Cuba, Americans seeking picturesque villages can find them in this hemisphere. Trinidad, Cuba, a UNESCO World Heritage Site faTravel mous for its Old World charm, also provides an opportunity to observe the practices of a mysterious New World religion. Trinidad was founded on Dec. 23, 1514, more than 50 years before St. Augustine, the United States’ oldest city. Trinidad became rich trading in sugar and slaves needed on nearby plantations. A well-preserved central square surrounded by redtiled mansions reflects that golden age. With the abolition of slavery, the trade that had supported Trinidad ended and Trinidad clocks seem to have stopped in the nineteenth century. Pastel-colored homes have open windows with only metal bars separating the room inside from the street. Donkeys pull carts down narrow cobblestone streets, pigs roast on wooden spits turned by hand and guitar players sing more for themselves than for tourists. Slaves from western Africa carried with them the worship of gods (orishas) representing many aspects of their lives. Forced by Spanish masters to practice Roman Catholicism, they cleverly

merged their ancestral beliefs with those of Christianity. The resulting syncretic religion is called Santeria (saint worship) because practitioners worshipped the statues of saints, which they had re-identified as their orishas. Many Cubans still call themselves Catholics but practice Santeria at home, some with sacred African images painted on the backs of images of saints. Some of the practices of Santeria are closed to outsiders, but others are on display in Trinidad’s unique Casa Templo de Santeria Yemaya, a combination museum and house of worship. A blue and white altar pays homage to Yemaya, a goddess of the sea looking a lot like the Virgin Mary. A cigar-smoking Babalawo will, if properly motivated, explain the non-secret aspects of Santeria when not out back conducting services, including sacrifices, for believers. If you want to see a colorful hillside village where tourists are the primary reminder of the 21st century, you have many choices. If you want to experience Santeria, to the extent an outsider ever can, Trinidad may be the best choice. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

No place for ‘between you and I’ Commentary by Jordan Fischer

No obligation. Totally free. SEATING IS LIMITED. SIGN UP TODAY

Question: “Dear Jordan, I’m laughing again about your advice to ‘avoid the double is unless you’re writing dialogue for a show about organized crime.’ Grammar grammar guy Guy, please never leave us who are chronically dismayed by the language lightweights, nimwits or numskulls. Once upon a time, I thought the cure could be listening to a recording of correct grammar versus bad grammar. Recently, I heard a highly successful leader misuse ‘between you and me’ (he said “I’). Is there ever a proper usage for ‘between you and I?’ (Barbara Purvis, Noblesville) Answer: Barbara, thanks for writing in. I like the idea of listening to correctional grammar recordings. I have noticed – and perhaps you have too – that hearing or reading grammar used incorrectly seems to have much more “stickiness” in the brain than proper grammar. After years of editing, there are words I never had problems with before that I now constantly have to double check, just because I’ve seen them written incorrectly so many times. At any rate, what we have in the phrase “between you and I” is a simple subject-object pronoun mismatch, and it’s one that is always incorrect. The word “between” is a preposition,

and thus begins a prepositional phrase. We know that prepositional phrases require object pronouns like “him,” “us,” “them” or, in this case, “me.” The tendency for some people to misuse “I” and “me” is due to a lack of confidence about subject-object pronoun rules. For example, a person might say “Jimmy and me went to the park.” They then get corrected (“It’s ‘Jimmy and I!’”), but the correction isn’t accompanied by an explanation of when it is appropriate to use “me.” The idea that “me” is somehow improper grammar gets internalized and “I” starts popping up where an object pronoun is needed. Reflexive pronouns, as we talked about last week with “myself,” often experience a similar misperception as more “formal” pronoun choices. To help build up that confidence, remember this: Prepositional phrases need objects, and that means object pronouns. Throw “between you and I” in the refuse heap. While you are there, if you see any other grammar garbage lying around, shoot me an e-mail. I’m always hunting down column ideas. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing.

ONE STOP WEDDING SHOP At Salon 01 we pride ourselves on being a full service salon. We can fix the botched manicure you got down the street, turn your bed head into beautiful and give you a number of spa services that rival those at the top spas in the nation on any given day. So, imagine what we can do for you on your “big day.”

1-HOUR SWEDISH OR DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE WITH OUR NEWEST TEAM MEMBER ANTHONY! EXPIRES 10/31/13

We have a variety of services and packages that have been specifically tailored to brides and wedding parties, and while we’d love to have you in our salon, we can also pack up our tools and come to you for all of your wedding day desires.

COLORS OF FALL Normally your fall wardrobe may consist of conventional autumn hues, chocolate and steel gray, but why not spice it up this season?

Each of the stylists on our special occasion team are trained in the art of updo’s and styling. They attend classes in and out of the salon to stay on top of the latest trends in wedding hair and makeup.

According to fashiontribes.typepad.com, you should think of colors such as blue iris or royal lilac when adding pieces to your autumn wardrobe. Other colors that can add some punch are a deep oxblood red and green.

Additionally, Salon 01 is different than most other salons because we have enough members on our team to accommodate wedding parties of any size. Our stylists and estheticians know how important it is for everything to be flawless on your wedding day, so achieving the perfect look for you is not something we want to leave until the last minute. For this reason, every bride who chooses our salon for their wedding can receive both a hair and a makeup trial prior to their wedding day.

Make sure you are also updating your accessory wardrobe. Accessories are another great way to add color to your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Try incorporating bracelets or earrings in a bright turquoise blue. Copper and Gold are also always a sure bet.

Salon 01 does nearly 100 weddings per year, and from this experience, we have come to understand several things. For instance, an hour of peace on the massage table for the mother of the bride (AKA an hour without her daughter’s day-of demands for crisis control) really does make a difference. Also, you will realize that, yes, the groom’s hair will need a touch-up after he Also, the groom's hair may need a touchup after he tries to save some cash by going elsewhere for a really cheap haircut, but got what he paid for. This is the simple stuff that Salon 01 can take care of so you don’t have to.

WEAR IT: NUDE NAILS Nude colored nails are a great way to look polished without being overdone. We recommend finding a color that is slightly darker than your natural skin tone. Before you start, be sure that any leftover polish has been removed so you have a nice, clean slate. Prep the surrounding nail area with a cuticle cream to clear up unwanted hangnails, then swipe clean with a touch of nail polish remover. File nails in a “squoval” shape; meaning square with rounded corners. Be sure to use a base coat and top coat to get longer lasting wear. Rather not mess around with all the prep? Schedule your appointment for a manicure at Salon 01. Choose from our regular natural nail manicures or a Shellac manicure with gel polish that lasts up to 2 weeks with no chipping!

Schedule your consultation now, or contact our talented Bridal Director, Sarah, at bridal@salon01.com for more information.

Keep fresh this fall! And, of course, nothing enhances your wardrobe like a fresh haircut and dimensional color!

Confusing configurations stump even the seasoned Commentary by Vicky Earley What is a sofa buyer to do? The possible configurations are sure to send even seasoned sofa buyers home with a headache. Rather than lying on the decorating old sofa, feet elevated and a cold pack on that headache, trudge into that upholstered jungle prepared. These befuddling configurations can be broken down in just three basic options. First, and probably the most common, is the “Three Over Three” sofa. It is an easy choice for many because it offers three “sitters” the opportunity to have their own space without having to perch where the seats meet. I was reminded at a recent seminar that the average upholstery textile has a 27-inch or smaller pattern repeat. The three-seater works well when a pattern is being selected. The downside is that with three seats there are quite a few visual lines and breaks, making for a bit of a choppy look. As a designer, I embrace those lines and often make them part of the visual appeal by using a contrasting welt. This gives the sofa almost a pinstripe look. Some of the traditional three-seater frames have not been updated over the years so there is the risk of having a sofa delivered that is dated before it enters your front door. Second is what is called the “Two Over Two” –

two cushions and two back support cushions. C R Laine Furniture merchandiser Holly Blalock considers this a clean, quiet sofa style. It is a traditional silhouette that can offer updated features by the arm, leg and fabric selections. Blalock points out that with fewer seats and backs, there are fewer visual breaks. Thus, the sofa has the opportunity to assume a more metropolitan look. The negative side to this configuration is that although the length is the same as a three-seater, if seating three, someone must sit where the cushions join. The third configuration (and my personal favorite) is the bench seat. This is a sofa with one long cushion and no visual breaks. This removes the limit of how many can be seated if they don’t mind shoulders touching. The bench seat begs to be napped on, and Blalock pointed out that if the back cushions are removed, it can substitute for a daybed for guests. If a bench seat is selected, be prepared for a bit of maintenance. The long and often heavy cushion must be flipped periodically for the health of the sofa. The fabric will also pucker over time as the textile relaxes. Knowing in advance how a sofa will be used will help guide your selection.

Replacing kitchen peninsula with new island

Commentary by Larry Greene

Existing kitchen: This home is located in the College Park addition on the northwest side of Indianapolis. Their 1970’s kitchen lacked the functionality modern Blueprint for families are looking for improvement these days. After four and a half years of living with outdated appliances and poor flow, the owners were ready to remodel. “The kitchen was very outdated, and the peninsula cut things off,” stated the homeowner. “There was very little cabinetry storage.” Design phase: The design team was focused on functionality. The designer stated, “Center islands are preferred now over peninsulas, as they allow for movement throughout the space rather than pooling people into one area. Storage is also a large consideration. Filling available space with well-designed cabinetry easily increases storage capacity.” New island: The new island needed to compliment the footprint of the original long and narrow kitchen space. By curving the end of the island where the kitchen table was previously located, the homeowners were able to have both an eat-in kitchen and a large work area. Extending the island also added more base cabinetry for their storage needs. Perimeter cabinets: Salvaging the original perimeter cabinets required some creativity, as

Before the specifications for modern appliances have changed over the last 40 years. The trim carpenter modified the cabinet under the new cooktop to fit a 27-inch wall oven. The original cabinets were painted and updated hardware was installed. The desk area was replaced with the refrigerator and surrounding cabinetry. According to the homeowner, “The desk area trapped all of our mail and junk. I really like all of the new storage space.” Final fesult: New appliances, a striking glass tile backsplash, granite countertops and undercabinet lighting provide the finishing touches for this newly configured kitchen. Like many other
