Before you pedal away from your house today, there are some new bicycle laws you should know about. After months of delays government due to disagreements on the particulars of the new rules, a satisfactory version was unanimously approved at the Nov. 4 Carmel City Council meeting and is effective immediately. Some of the policies are new and some are carried over from the previous rules. But whether you’re walking, biking or driving in Carmel, here are the rules to travel by: Bicyclists • Must yield the right-of-way to any person they approach from behind and give an audible signal before overtaking and passing. • Emerging from alleys or driveways must yield the right-of-way to both pedestrians and motor vehicles. • No more than two bicyclists may ride abreast on any multi-use path, and groups of cyclists may not stop traffic on a city street to cross against a traffic signal. • Must not exceed a speed limit of 20 mph on the Monon Trail, nor exceed a speed limit of 15 mph on the Monon between 111th and 136 streets. • May not pass motor vehicles on a roadway. Dog Walkers/Pedestrians • Dog walkers must continuously restrain their dogs with a leash no longer than 6 feet. (The previous ordinance prohibited retractable leashes; the new one does not.)

File photo

Drivers • Of a motor vehicle must exercise “due care” to avoid colliding with a cyclist and sound a warning horn beep. • May not open a car door on a city street without looking, or leave a car door open on the street unattended. • Who are making a right turn which takes them through a bike lane must yield to bikes in the lane. • May not turn right in front of a bicyclist (whether on a roadway or when crossing a multi-use path) and drivers must yield the right-of-way to oncoming cyclists when turning left. While some of the particulars of these policies seem like common sense, the ordinance’s sponsor, Councilor Ron Carter said, “It still has to be spelled out. It’s common sense that you can’t rob a bank, but we still have laws that say it’s illegal.” The ordinance does not address the issue of pedestrian right-of-way where multi-use paths cross city streets, because that is a matter of state law. “Citizens must remember that city ordinances can never trump state law,” said Councilor Luci Snyder. “In other states, pedestrians always have the rightof-way; that is not the case here. Indiana state law grants motor vehicles the right-of-way. Stopping and waving on bikes and pedestrians, while polite, is actually against the law and can cause accidents.” Any person or business cited for violations of these rules is subject to a fine of $100 plus costs for the first offense and not less than $200 for the second and all subsequent offenses.

Dunkin Donuts robbery

DVD review Rebooting a superhero franchise is a trickier business than it sounds. Hollywood attempted to bring back Superman a few years ago, and the results were just OK. Now they’ve tried again, and the results are similarly so-so. Read more at currentnightandday.com.

A man robbed the Range Line Road Dunkin Donuts on Nov. 4 and made off with an undisclosed amount of money from the safe. No surveillance images of the robber were captured at the store, and the police are seeking leads from the public to help apprehend the criminal. For more information visit www.currentincarmel. com.

Movie review

Where Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” was a two-hour joke of a film about a slave who conquered his plantation masters, “Twelve Years A Slave” takes slavery very seriously. There is no director grinning on the sidelines as we cheer on a rewriting of history. This is slavery exposed as the cruel, unforgiving, barbarism that it was.

Carmel named most family-friendly By Chris Bavender • news@currentincarmel.com When it comes to deciding where to buy a home and raise a family, good schools and affordable housing are at the top of award the list for many. Carmel has been ranked the No. 1 town in Indiana for young families by NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website. Conducted over the last two weeks, the study uses five factors to determine the best towns. They include: • Public school rating • Median home value • Ongoing cost of homeownership • Median income • Economic growth “In general, if you abstract out of those income, affordability and quality of schools, those are the three principal things a young family looks for in a community,” said Mike Anderson, the analyst who conducted the study. “If you Great Rank City Schools rating 1 Carmel 9 2 Fishers 9 3 Granger 9 4 Crown Point 8 5 Greenwood 8

have young kids you want good schools and affordable homes and a healthy job market so you can demand a high income.” In addition to the schools and affordable housing, Anderson said the significant economic growth of Carmel suggests the economy has done well and will continue to do well and is just a marker of stability. Rounding out the top five are Greenwood, Crown Point, Granger and Fishers. Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said he was pleased with the city’s top ranking. “The City of Carmel believes in encouraging a strong family environment by providing an outstanding quality of life for our citizens,” Brainard said. “Low tax payments and low overall cost of living make Carmel a good value for families. Carmel’s excellent school system, safe neighborhoods, its parks and trails, cultural options and focus on good city design all complement each other in creating a vibrant and thriving community.”

City Council recap

Compiled by Karen Kennedy

What happened: The proposed Atapco development was passed. What it means: Despite a prolonged remonstrance by a group of neighbors, the Council approved the development by a 4-3 vote with Councilors Ron Carter, Carol Schleif and Eric Seidensticker voting against it. Councilor Kevin “Woody” Rider reminded the remonstrators that a failure to pass the PUD would have resulted in the loss of landscaping and intersection improvements that came out of the negotiation process. Snyder added that the land was previously zoned for a manufacturing facility.

What’s next: Atapco is cleared to proceed with its development plans.

PRE-BLACK FRIDAY

CLOSEOUT!

What happened: The financing was approved to extend Illinois Street. What it means: The bonded amount of $7 million will allow the city to extend Illinois Street south from 116th Street prior to road construction on U.S. 31 that will limit access to West Carmel. The known project costs are $6.535 million and the remainder of the bond would either be used for cost overruns or sent back to the council for a new use at its discretion. A special-benefits tax was utilized to secure a lower interest rate for the bond, but Councilor Luci Snyder said the city would use TIF or rainy-day funds before allowing a tax increase.

What it means: This bond would be used to pay for infrastructure for the Legacy development area. According to Snyder, the city is not responsible for repayment of this bond. The developer is required to repay it, and its financing bank will be responsible if they do not.

fof r 6 22.9.9% or 600mo% monnths ths

What’s next: Construction will begin next year.

What happened: Proposal to authorize the city to issue a $12 million bond for the Legacy development. What’s next: It will be heard again at the Nov. 18 council meeting.

What happened: A proposal to spend $70,000 for the purchase of the Brookshire Golf Course swimming pool. What it means: The pool is inseparable from the city-owned golf course’s clubhouse. The nonprofit Brookshire Swim Club owns the pool currently, and the group purchased the pool for $100,000, said Leo Dierckman, a member of Carmel’s Board of Zoning Appeals. “It’s totally inappropriate to have separate ownership,” he said.

What’s next: It will be heard again at the Nov. 18 council meeting.

What happened: New speed limits were established for Illinois Street. What it means: The council voted to suspend the rules and vote on the ordinance in the meeting after its first reading. The measure establishes a 40 mph speed limit on Illinois Street between 106th and 116th streets.

Utilities settles into new home

The common area maintenance fees of $898 per month also will be shared, with the utilities Although cardboard boxes line the hallways on department paying 74 percent ($665) and the the second floor of 30 W. Main St., Carmel Utilities CRC paying 26 percent ($233). Carmel City Utilities and the CRC are the only has officially relocated to city departments that are not housed in a citygovernment its new home above the owned building.

The utilities staff now shares the city to move the utilities departnewly remodeled offices with the staff ment into potential office space in the of the department of community relawater tower at West Main Street and tions and economic development and Shelbourne Road. However, that plan the Carmel Redevelopment Commission. never came to fruition. Given the recent resignations within “The water tower on the west side the CRC, Megan McVickers currently is in was built so offices could be placed in it the spacious and newly renovated office later if needed,” said Mayor Jim Brainard by herself.

4CDC board sees another defection

little l bblack Dress D sEason

By Pete Smith and Karen Kennedy news@currentincarmel.com Noted Carmel architect Tom Crowley has resigned his positions on the boards of both the Carmel City Center Comgovernment munity Development Corporation and the Carmel Redevelopment Commission. Clyde Lee, Crowley’s spokesman, said that he was resigning his public service positions due to the time constraints necessary with starting a new business. “I want to thank Tom for his work and understand the challenges of starting a new business,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said in a statement. This is the second resignation from the 4CDC board in the past month. Jessica Kruse, the newly appointed president of the 4CDC, also resigned Oct. 18. City Councilor Ron Carter is the sole remaining board member. Carter said that a new 4CDC president will be elected at a meeting Nov. 12. The 4CDC, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, collects rent from commercial tenants at the Center for the Performing Arts and is part of complex financing mechanisms involving the CRC, City Councilor Luci Snyder said. Crowley was the city council’s appointment to the 4CDC board, and Snyder said a replacement will likely be approved by the city council at an

upcoming council meeting. Crowley also leaves an absence on the board of the CRC, the entity tasked with managing income from the city’s TIF districts. “He did resign from the CRC. It should not impact the operations of the boards and over the next few weeks (I’ll) identify a replacement,” Brainard said in a statement. The board of the CRC has been without the guidance of any development staff members since executive director Les Olds and operations manager Matt Worthley resigned Oct. 17. To fill that void the city is likely to rely on the consulting services of Jim Higgins of London Witte and independent consultant Michael Lee, formerly of London Witte. Brainard also recently told the Indianapolis Business Journal that he and Steve Engelking, the city’s director of administration, would handle day-to-day affairs in the meantime. Given recent budget constraints, there likely is little to do at the CRC. “Based on our forecast (the CRC) will have an approximate balance of about $100,000 at the end of the 2013, which accounts for a December TIF distribution of $8.3M. of which $8.2 will be needed for debt service in Dec. 2013 and Jan. 2014,” Olds wrote in an email to Brainard, CRC staff and consultants on Oct. 8. But at the Oct. 21 city council meeting Brainard indicated that the CRC has numerous assets it is trying to liquidate to improve its position.

No answers for uncollected fees By Pete Smith and Karen Kennedy news@currentincarmel.com

Questions still remain unanswered following the release of the State Board of Accounts’ 2012 audit of the Carmel government Redevelopment Commission. The largest of which is: What happened to almost $800,000 in uncollected money owed to the CRC from its energy consumption agreements? According to Carmel City Council President Rick Sharp, when the Center for the Performing Arts was built, the engineers decided that it would be best, in terms of acoustics, structural issues and economics, to build a separate mechanical house for the electrical circuits and water heating and cooling mechanisms that would service all of the buildings at the Center for the Performing Arts campus - the Palladium, the Tarkington and the James Building – in addition to city facilities like the police station, the fire station and city hall. “The Energy Center has many benefits to the city,” said City Spokeswoman Nancy Heck in a statement. “It is creating a more cost-efficient way to heat and cool several buildings using one system rather than having separate systems for each structure and has allowed us to replace an aging system in older buildings.” It was determined that water lines would be run from the Energy Center to these buildings with water-cooled heat and air conditioning. According to Sharp, then-CRC Executive Director Les Olds sold this plan to the city council and called it a gift to the city, but later presented the city with a contract for energy services. The State Board of Accounts audit said that of the $1,343,697.60 in Energy Center fees due to the CRC in 2012, the actual amount collected was $555,822.90, leaving a deficit of $787,874.70. Addressing the issue, Heck said in a statement, “The CRC made payments to the lender in

2012 in the amount of $1,708,952.88. Various city departments, the Palladium, the Office Building and the Tarkington transferred payments totaling $555,822.90 to redevelopment, which went toward that $1.7 million payment.” “The CRC wanted other city departments to pay the full $1.7 million dollars annually. The SBOA relied, when making their audit comment, on a contract requiring other city departments to pay that amount; however that contract was not signed by the appropriate official and therefore was never valid. The amount that was actually paid by city departments for 2012 was the amount approved by the city council as part of the budget process. The procedures and the amount the various departments will pay in the future will be based on the amount previously approved by city council in the 2013 and 2014 budgets.” Sharp rejected this claim as untrue, saying that the council’s approval of a city-wide budget did not have any bearing on the CRC’s Energy Center agreements. Sharp went on to say that he didn’t believe the $787,874.70 detailed in the audit was missing, but that an accounting error likely is the culprit in the discrepancy. “I do not have evidence that funds are missing, because I have not been presented with books that substantiate that fact,” Sharp said The State Board of Accounts couldn’t comment further of the discrepancy either. Mike Bozymski, the deputy state examiner for the State Board of Accounts, said his department is exclusively a reporting agency and doesn’t have enforcement power. “We hope when we get in there next year to do another audit that the (uncollected) money will be accounted for,” he said. Bozymski said that this audit had not been forwarded to the Indiana State Police for further investigation, but he did say that the audit was forwarded to the Hamilton County Prosecutor on Nov. 4.

A high-profile location at the northwest corner of Main Street and Range Line Road in Carmel’s Arts & Design District has a new tenant – and it’s not an art gallery. real estate Edmonds International, USA, plans to open its North American headquarters at 2 W. Main St., said Dan Moriarty, a founding partner at Indianapolis’ CSO Architects and now with Edmonds. “It’s a little bit of a fresh start,” Moriarty said of his Moriarty plans to transition out of his ownership role with CSO after 27 years of service and begin again with Edmonds. “I’m just ready to slow down a bit.” Edmonds International currently has offices in Mexico City, New York and Vancouver and specializes in large office towers like the currentlyplanned Energy Tower in Midland, Texas. And the space won’t simply be a showcase for Edmonds’ renderings and models. Moriarty plans for the space to be a working office for up to 10 architects, six or seven of whom will join him from CSO. Moriarty, 54, has made a name for himself in Carmel already with his work on the Palladium, Evan Lurie Art Gallery and Sophia Square apartment building.

The building at the northwest corner of Main Street and Range Line Road in Carmel will house Edmonds International, USA on the first floor in addition to the existing law offices of Curtis Butcher on the second floor.

“I like being a part of the community and being a part of that area,” Moriarty said, noting the building’s proximity to his home and his daughter’s school. He also said he likes the historic nature of the building. The only changes he might make are to add window screens, interior planters for greenery and perhaps a modest library inside the first-floor bank vault that survives from a previous era.

More than 70 pieces will be featured art including a variety of pastels, oils, watercolors, acrylics and sculpture. “The membership exhibition reflects the breadth of styles and impressive depth of talent that are found in our state,” said April Willy, vice president Willy of the artists club. “It is unusual and wonderful to see such diversity of media and approaches within one organization, and the exhibition is truly a testament to the inclusive spirit of Indiana.” Willy also is one of the seven artists featured at the exhibition. A working “modern impressionist,” she said she uses bright and deeply saturated colors to create stylized interpretations of the Indiana landscape. “People describe my work as evoking a real peaceful feeling and are drawn to this unusual style,” she said. “My technique is to apply layer upon layer of thin circles and ringlets in oil. This creates a softedged effect with subtle gradations.” Willy said that her work is similar to highly-

Kids raise money to help peers Commentary by Jeff Worrell

“I am proud of my school for helping Riley because when we donate to Riley Hospital, we help find cures for sickness volunteers and make children happy,” Allison Burke said. Perceptive words from a wise-beyond-heryears student at Prairie Trace Elementary. Burke is one of a group of students who, on their own, have been seeking creative ways to raise money to benefit Riley. Fortunately for everyone, the kids are also students in LeAnne Matthews’ 2-3 gifted and talented class. Prairie Trace Principal Jill Smith said, “Mrs. Matthews saw what the kids were doing and decided it was a great learning opportunity. She was able to tie in real life experiences with the social studies community curriculum. When a teacher can do that, it is a win-win for everyone.” The self-taught, self-managed kids ran bake sales and lemonade stands to raise money. They also held events to collect toys and games for the patients at Riley. Even during their own birthday parties they asked for donations, looking for every opportunity to achieve their goal. When Matthews heard about what they were doing, she was happy to turn it into a learning opportunity, but firm that 100 percent of the credit go to her students.

“My role is to keep this process focused on the kids. It is all about them, their connection to their community and what they learn from that. What they have accomplished they have done on their own,” Matthews said. “We are raising money for kids, and it makes us feel good. I want kids to have long, happy lives and not have to suffer with sickness and diseases. My grandmother died with cancer, and I don’t want it to happen to kids around the world. I think the kids who died with sickness and went to heaven are watching us, and they are proud,” said student Meghna Iyer. The folks at Riley are proud of these kids as well, recently highlighting their generosity in a blog titled, “Kids These Days: Nine Big-Hearted Kids Who Give Us Hope.” The blog post pointed out the inspiration which comes from kids helping kids. Riley Reese captures the spirit which is alive and thriving with his pals at Prairie Trace. He said, “I want kids to all be equal, and I want to serve all kids in need. I want to help children by giving them happiness and love.” Jeff Worrell is a member of the Carmel Redevlopment Commission.He recognizes volunteers on “Connecting with Carmel” on cable channel 16.

Radio’s ripple effect On the 50th anniversary of the high school station, alumni recognize its impact on their lives By Terri Spilman • news@currentincarmel.com Wall-to-wall collages of album covers, vinyl records and “Rolling Stone” magazines send a reminder of the glory days of radio.

WHJE’s first engineer, Tom Hamblen, at the control panel, circa 1963.

WHJE’s first studio was in the former “Log Cabin” administration building next to the high school.

Former Carmel High School Principal Earl F. Lemme launched more than just the city’s first radio station, WHJE, 91.3 FM, in 1963. His ingenuity fostered an environment that cover story encouraged the personal growth of his students and catapulted many a career despite drastic transformations in the radio industry in the 50 years that followed. The call letters WHJE stand for high school, junior high and elementary. A look around the expansive state-of-the-art, computer-based studio reveals numerous awards, along with a plaque of station alumni that reads like an industry Who’s Who with such notable on-air personalities as NPR’s Steve Inskeep, WTTS’s Paul Mendenhall, WOWO’s Charly Butcher, ESPN’s Lance McAlister and comedian Dave Dugan just to name a few. Wall-to-wall collages of album covers, vinyl records and “Rolling Stone” magazines send a reminder of the glory days of radio. If only those walls could talk.

‘What a thrill’

Fishers resident Tom Hamblen was the first engineer at the original studio located in the “old log cabin” building on 4th Street when the station first went live. He said he remembers calling his parents to make sure the broadcast could be heard over the radio. “It may be difficult given the immediacy of technology today to imagine what a thrill it was to a kid in high school in the early 60s manning the technology of that day,” Hamblen said. The next two decades marked an era of growth at WHJE. Scott Gregg joined the school in 1970 to manage the station and design a radio curriculum. The FCC required students to maintain a license. “It was a big thing to pass the test and have your license at the time,” Gregg said. “The radio station was basically studentoperated. We were blessed to have tremendous students who cared about the radio station and cared about what went out over the air.”

‘Exciting for the kids’

The original telegram to Principal Earl Lemme announcing the approval of the FCC license for the station.

The programming was run like a commercial radio station in order to give the students practical industry experience according to Tom Schoeller, who was on-air staff as a student and later became an advisor. “The kids really had to study music, listen to all the new things that came out and predict the next hit,” Schoeller said. “It was exciting for the kids to meet their public by doing live remotes at local businesses such as Woodland Theater, Keystone Square Mall and Union State Bank as well as broadcasting community shows from McDonald’s.” Schoeller told his students, “If you can sit in a closet and hold a conversation with yourself, you’ll make it in radio.”

‘Turning point of my life’

This mantra held true for comedian Dave Dugan, who confessed, “This obsession started at the age of 11 when I created my own radio station in the closet beneath our basement stairs, broadcasting to anyone within a half mile radius who had a walkie-talkie, which I realize sounds like the plot of one of those bad afterschool specials. I think it would be called ‘The Kid Under The Stairs’ starring Robby Benson.” “It may sound overdramatic, but WHJE was the biggest single turning point of my life. Without it, I don’t know where I would be today,” Dugan said. “Probably still under the stairs.”

Preparing students for the future

Today, the curriculum surrounding WHJE has more of a broad communications focus and the station is grouped in the Greyhound Media Network along with CHTV, HiLite Newsmagazine and Pinnacle Yearbook according to current advisor, Brian Spilbeler. The studios are located in the middle of the communications department with broadcasts piped into the senior hall. The station broadcasts between 150-175 sporting events a year. The station programming consists of music reviews, in-depth reports, radio dramas and commentary Spilbeler on teen-based topics from the serious (such as rape culture and suicide) to the lighter side of daily school life. WTTS on-air personality Paul Mendenhall said, “WHJE meant everything to me in high school, it gave me a place to fit in and develop some rudimentary skills that were good enough to allow me to get started in commercial broadcasting.”

Fair dealing Commentary by Terry Anker LAX shooter Paul Ciancia, a 23-year-old Catholic school graduate and son of a well-regarded public safety official, believed that the Transportation Security Agency had abused its authority over the American public. Whether revolutionary or anti-social zealot, this young man is emblematic of a growing mood among many who realize the promise of opportunity in America is not guaranteed. Confidence in our leaders is at all-time low and the airwaves are filled with examples of abundant equivocation on the part of those in whom we have invested our trust. I have never been much of a revolutionary myself – when in college in student leadership we were much more likely to work with the administrators than to chain ourselves to the president’s office. And the question remains, can one ever justify terror whether a radical or not? But we always believed that those in power included the dissent in their consideration. It did not seem that their power was used to suppress our point of view.

Government is a good thing, creating the framework that enables civil society to operate. But those governed have to believe that this investiture of power is just. The accusation of illegal eavesdropping in the private sector has led to the immediate firing of the low-level staff involved, to extensive criminal investigations, to the closing of the 168-year-old newspaper where they worked, and to the public interrogation of the 80-year-old owner who ultimately managed the staff along with tens of thousands of other employees. Meanwhile, a federal agency (NSA) spied on millions of Americans, foreign leaders and, according to recent report, the ex-wives and in-laws of interested government employees, yet no one is being asked to account. Their boss, President Obama, has not been called to testify. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

Have you heard about the Humane Society for Hamilton County’s Survivor Program? If you haven’t, you should know it’s grossly underfunded. You should also know you can make a difference. Current, Kingston’s Music Showcase and 3Ds Pub & Café are teaming to benefit the Survivor Program with an evening of dining, dancing and donating. It all unfolds at 6 p.m. Nov. 27 at 3Ds, 13644 N. Meridian St., Carmel. Yes, it’s a chance to pay forward the night before Thanksgiving. Please consider joining the crowd as we all try to make a difference for the canines and felines that are very much in need. If you’re not headed out of town, we’d love to have you join us. If you have family or friends coming into town for the holiday weekend, please consider bringing them. Barometer Soup is donating the performance, and here’s why: Some of the animals arriving at the society are in need of immediate, emergency medical care, some of it lifesaving. It boils down to a second chance for the patients. There simply is not enough money to help every injured or sickly animal. If a dog is hit by a car, in order to save the pooch’s life it will take every bit of $2,500 or more, and so every dime raised at this event will go toward providing the medical care needed. While there is no cover charge for this fundraiser, donations gladly will be accepted at the door. Please help us help the Humane Society beef up the Survivor Program. By the way, we’re told some furry “celebrities” may make an appearance. If you need additional incentive, your donations are, indeed, tax-deductible. We’re strongly with the Humane Society on this: We believe the world is a much better place with these pets in it. For more information, please call the society at 773-4974.

I believe all political sides are going to be surprised that I am calling for the Carmel City Council to vote Carmel a viewpoint second-class city. No, I am not doing this because Fishers will soon be a second-class city, but solely because I believe it is the best way to govern our city. The most important changes when we convert are that the clerk-treasurer position will be eliminated, the city council will expand from seven to nine members, and the mayor will no longer be the presiding officer at city council meetings. Second-class city status means better government for Carmel, and no way reflects in any direction on the current clerk-treasurer, mayor or city council members. Indiana statute requires cities who meet the population number to declare their status level, which in Carmel’s case will take action by the city council. Carmel is currently a third-class city, which was established for cities with population under 35,000 residents. Carmel’s population now exceeds 80,000 residents and our city’s 2014 budget is over $127 million. So why is Carmel still a third-class city? The issue with many of the more conservative councilors has been the checks and balances of having a separately elected official overseeing the money. There has also been concern that the only way to easily get copies of public documents was through the current clerk-treasurer’s office. The concerns have some merit; however, we must consider the opposite side - what we are sacrificing? The city council is the legislative branch of city

government and its fiscal body. The most important fiscal action of the Council is to approve the city’s budget. However, that function was abdicated recently under third-class city rules when the mayor was able to pass the 2014 city budget by voting for and breaking a 3-3 council tie. This situation provided for no separation of powers, and let the mayor vote for and approve his own budget without council oversight. Second-class city status would have prevented this and will insure checks and balances between the legislation and executive branches. Better representation of the people would be another benefit of changing status. As a secondclass city there would be more council districts resulting in a reduction in the number of households in each district. Districts would be more homogenous when it comes to their issues and needs in their geographical areas. More councilmen will facilitate more responsive representation to taxpayers. The city council, not the clerk-treasurer, provides the checks and balances to the executive branch. Currently the clerk-treasurer position pays almost $100,000, and the city spends hundreds of thousands more on an outside financial advisor. Yes there would still be an elected clerk; however financial operations would be unified under a controller reporting to the mayor. Let’s forget politics and who is in which elected position today. Make Carmel a second-class city so it can work better.

Last week you may recall reading about my younger son assaulting his brother half way between Louisville and Indianapolis humor and the subsequent improvement in their relationship. What I didn’t mention was another unforeseen positive consequence of what is now known as the “Fight of 2013.” After Andrew punched his teasing sibling in the temple, my husband and I grounded him for one week. No friends to play with, no leaving the house other than for school or practices, and most significantly, at least in his 12-year-old eyes, no electronics of any kind. We are cruel parents, indeed. Not surprisingly, this last bit of torture took its toll. Andrew complained, moped, nagged and proclaimed his innocence in a desperate attempt for amnesty and a rescinding of the Xbox ban. “You’re the one who’s always telling me to fight back, and now you’re punishing me for it? It’s not fair!”; “He’s always hitting me and you never do anything to him! It’s not fair!”; “Argh! I’m so booo-rrred! It’s not fair!” Tough cookies, Andrew. Life isn’t fair, get used to it. And guess what? He did. He broke out some clay and began creating amazing aliens and other creatures. He rode his bike and walked the dog. He, gulp, read a book. He even enlisted his twin sister and former-nemesis teenage brother to create a pillow-avalanche scenario in the

basement where they taught our Labrador to perform search and rescue missions. I know! What’s more, the rest of the kids followed suit. Whether in solidarity for their imprisoned comrade or simply because his activities looked like more fun, they too spent a lot less time engrossed in their computers, Kindles, and i-paraphernalia. It’s like they suddenly remembered they had imaginations and how to use them! Coincidentally, my brother-in-law informed me at taekwondo that he was experiencing a similar phenomenon at his house. They, too, had instituted “Amish Week” as a punishment for their 8-yearold, and were amazed to see him returning to “the good ol’ days” prior to mass electronics. So what did I learn as a parent through all of this? For starters, my children are addicts. Secondly, as adults, Doo and I can break the cycle if we choose. Well, little Wilsons, we choose. Yes, Andrew had to hit rock bottom for us to realize there was a major problem, but now the jig is up. I am pleased to report that we have already implemented steps (12 actually) to ensure all of our kids are on the road to video-game recovery. Don’t know how long it will last, but it’s a start. Peace out.

Not the end of the world

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

The big story this past month is not that one of our big stars (Miley Cyrus) is twerking, but that one of our medium-sized stars may humor someday stop working. I am talking about our sun, but Miley’s prospects for future employment might also be dimming. This end-of-the-world prediction comes courtesy of astro-biologist Andrew Rushby, a PhD candidate at the University of East Anglia in Great Britain, where life already ended unofficially for fellow students three weeks ago when the administration began prohibiting drinking Guinness in the college dorms. Rushby used what he calls “classic models” to help make his futuristic predictions. Here are a few examples of what those models suggested about the timing of the demise of the sun: • Kathy Ireland: 1.5 billion years • Claudia Schiffer: 2.3 billion years • Tyra Banks: 3.5 billion years Averaging it all, Rushby’s final conclusion is that earth will be uninhabitable somewhere between 1.75 billion years and 3.25 billion from now. At first, this prediction really scared me because I thought it said a million years. Whew! Rushby, who first trained as a meteorologist, is also saying that the final day the earth exists, whenever it is, will be cloudy with scattered showers and a really good chance of record heat. There is some good news. Rushby says that if we are good stewards of the earth we could

B OTOX

LIPS

squeeze out an extra weekend or two, which may not seem like much, but for those on spring break that year, that’s really a huge difference. Assuming we have at least a couple hundred thousand years’ notice, Rushby has a few ideas “where earthlings might want to move.” Mars will probably be habitable longer than Earth, so before this world ends, we will have plenty of time to move to Mars. Then in a truly optimistic note he claims that the Red Planet would be a great place to watch the sun go through its final self-destruction. Remember, it’s never too soon to get tickets for these kinds of events. Rushby is also a big admirer of the exoplanet Gliese 581d as an alternative to Earth, and really, can you blame him? This life-sustaining globe is only 20 light years away (about 120 trillion miles), which, like the college you attended, is close enough to home in an emergency but far enough way to prevent your parents from bugging you. Rushby will officially get his doctorate in June 2014 and his professors say he is a brilliant student with a great future. Asked by some local journalists what his plans are after graduating, he admitted that he just isn’t sure. “It’s difficult,” he said, “to think that far ahead.”

Wind Symphony show utilizes revolutionary flair

By Jay Harvey • news@currentincarmel.com

One of the most notorious premieres in the history of classical music happened 100 years ago last spring. But the riot that acmusic companied the first performance of “The Rite of Spring” in Paris would be just a footnote if it weren’t for the fact that Igor Stravinsky’s music for the ballet has been hailed as a masterpiece ever since. Charles Conrad hopes his Indiana Wind Symphony can channel some of that opening-night excitement - without the violence - when the ensemble presents a transcription of the original orchestra score as the main attraction of its Nov. 16 concert at the Palladium. “It’s really kind of a unique piece,” the director said in a phone interview recently. “It’s so strange to think it was written one hundred years ago, and it’s still kind of revolutionary. I’ve done more thinking about this, and you just wonder what makes it still sound that way, so that it evokes some of those emotions (that it did in 1913).” Conrad knew that transcriptions for a large ensemble without strings had been made, but only last December, when he attended an annual convention of music directors in Chicago, was he persuaded that one published by Kjos of San Diego was worth adding to the symphony’s repertoire. “Pretty much it’s identical to the original version,” he said. “It was done by Terry Vosbein for

the U.S. Army Field Band several years ago. It was obviously a massive undertaking, and it’s never been published and distributed ’til this year - because of the 100th anniversary.” Conrad said that the ballet score’s solos, including the work’s famous opening in the bassoon’s highest register, are all in the places those familiar with the piece will expect them to be. Though wind instruments and percussion are prominent in the original, the contrast that string instruments offer required suitable replacements. “He uses the saxophone section a lot. The harp gets some of the first-violin melodies, and he uses mallet percussion - vibraphone, xylophone and marimba - to reinforce it,” Conrad said. He had to make sure his 75-member adult concert band would have adequate rehearsal time for the Stravinsky piece.

“It’s been particularly challenging for our group - the toughest thing we’ve ever done,” he said. “It’s pushing everybody.” The rest of the program follows a 1913 theme and didn’t move the ensemble so far out of its comfort zone. Two composers born in 1913 are featured: Morton Gould, by the well-known “American Salute,” and Norman Dello Joio, by “Scenes from the Louvre,” a suite drawn from his music for a TV documentary about the Louvre Museum. There are three marches written or published a century ago: John Philip Sousa’s “From Maine to Oregon,” Karl King’s “Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite,” and another circus march by Hoosier composer Fred Jewell, called “Quality Plus” (after a Texas clothing-store’s slogan spotted from a train in which the circus bandmaster was traveling). To cap the centennial focus of the program, Conrad decided to add a march from 2013; “1776,” a piece written for the Reno Philharmonic’s Fourth of July concerts by John O’Neill. The start of one revolution thus connects with the start of another kind of revolution, representing an artistic milestone in the 14-year history of the Indiana Wind Symphony. “Hope Springs Eternal – The Rite of Spring at 100” • Indiana Wind Symphony • 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 • The Palladium • Tickets are $20 to $40 • For more information call 843-3800 or visit www. thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

And he will bring his gorgeous troupe of ten dancers to the Center for the Performing Arts this weekend. In a special performance with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra under the baton of James Caraher, Rioult will present an exclusive program comprised entirely of Bach music which will include: “Brandenburg Concerto No. 7,” “Sonata for Violin and Harpsichord No. 6 in G Major” and “Art of Fugue.” Rioult came to the United States from France

Behny back home again in ‘Wicked’ By Dawn Pearson • news@currentinwestfield.com Long before Dorothy was clicking her heels three times and promising “there’s no place like home,” there were two witches in Oz. “Wicked,” the untold story of the theatre witches of Oz, is flying back on its broomstick in the Broadway Indianapolis Series. Performances will run Nov. 13 through Dec. 1 at the Old National Center in Indianapolis. Indiana native and Ball State graduate Emily Behny joined the second national tour of “Wicked” in September. She plays the role of Nessarose Thropp, the woman who becomes the Wicked Witch of the East. “I am so happy to be back home in Indiana. As an actor, I don’t get to spend much time at home, let alone for the holidays, so I’m so thankful for the extended visit,” Behny said. “There really is ‘no place like home.’ I can make anywhere homey, including hotel rooms, but nothing can compare to the safety and comfort of your childhood home and being able to spend quality time with friends and family.” The Silver Lake, Ind., native said her parents, in-laws and best friend still live in northern Indiana. Her sister and extended family live in the Indianapolis area. “I have many friends still there, so this truly will be a homecoming,” she said. “I have professors and friends from both my college, Ball State University, and high school, Warsaw High School, coming to support ‘Wicked.’ In fact, at one matinee alone, 17 family members and 30 high school theatre students will be in the audience.”

One of her favorite things about Indiana is the pace of life. “As much as I enjoy the hustle and bustle of (New York City) and the transient life of an actor, I miss being rooted in a community that takes their time,” she said. “I also miss the warm smiles and hellos from perfect strangers on the street.” “The best part of my job is traveling the country and getting paid to do what I love. I love traveling and learning about culture in other cities, and I Iove that my job brings me close to home,” she said. “I also love interacting with the fans of ‘Wicked,’ doing Q & As and workshops that further impact people for the better.” For more information, visit www.ticketmaster. com/wicked or call (800) 982-2787.

Madame Thénardier (Annie Edgerton), right, fusses over her spoiled daughter, Eponine (Kendall Green of Carmel) in Les Misérables.

Cosette (Anja Reese of Carmel) sings “Castle on a Cloud” in Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre’s production of Les Misérables.

Anja, 13, said. “I had to rest my voice and I wasn’t able to participate in musical theatre for a while, which wasn’t easy.” With the help of a vocal therapist, Anja is able to sing without the nodules, allowing her to make her debut at Beef & Boards in one of her favorite musicals. “From a very young age, I have always loved performing,” she said. “I also enjoyed seeing Broadway shows and listening to their soundtracks. It was truly magical to me.” Although this is her first show at Beef & Boards, Anja has been seen in several regional productions, and says it is a dream of hers to perform on Broadway. Returning to the Beef & Boards stage is Kendall Greene, 11, who was a munchkin in last season’s production of The Wizard of Oz. “I love

to entertain,” the Creekside Middle School student said. “I love to dance,” she added, noting she’s particularly proud of earning first place at two different dance competitions. Kendall is a member of the Edge Force Competition Team at Performer’s Edge Studio. It was her love of dance, in fact, that brought her to Beef & Boards. “My dance teacher suggested (I) audition,” Kendall said. Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, a fruit and salad bar and a drink. Discounts are available for children and groups of 20 or more. Parking is free.

Keep your resolutions going Commentary by April Conard

The holiday season is fast approaching, and with it comes the baking, the family feasts and the parties. Of course, that will fitness include New Years Eve. What is the first thing you think about when you think New Year … maybe resolutions? Most of us will make some kind of healthbased New Year’s resolution. It might be to give up a forbidden food, utilize that gym membership, or even join one. With these resolutions in the back of our minds, it makes it much easier to devour every holiday treat and skip your workout. You can do this with little or no guilt because in the New Year, you will get those eating habits in check. You will do cardio and strength training 5 days a week to make up for lost time. You can start over in the New Year, so why not let it all go for awhile, it’s the holidays! Call me crazy but here is a thought, how about making your new year’s resolution to continue your healthy lifestyle, not start it. To increase the cardio workouts you are already doing, to add more vegetables to your already good eating habits. Hear me out before you

start justifying your poor choice of food and your lack of time spent exercising. I don’t want you to rob yourself of this special time and that includes some yummy treats. It also includes more time with family and friends, which means a little less time at the gym. Your plan of action is moderation. Make choices; eat sensibly all day when your plans include a party. You may need to skip the gym to spend time with family but instead of sitting around eating leftovers, organize a football game. If you have to skip your aerobics class because your shopping list is long, park far from the mall entrance and return to your car after each purchase. Go into the holidays knowing you will not let your healthy habits fall by the wayside. Realize how much farther along you will be into your fitness journey without two months off. This might not be the time to shed the pounds but it doesn’t have to be the time to gain them.

Obamacare: an insurance viewpoint Commentary by Karl Ahlrichs Let’s agree that insurance is tough to understand. Start with the fact that people in general don’t like the subject, and Insurance when we add politics to the mix we have a perfect storm. Much of recent news coverage of Obamacare has been focused on election-year presidential promises that claimed everyone could keep their existing health insurance policy if they liked it. Clearly, that wasn’t 100 percent correct. President Barack Obama should have said “most” instead of “all.” But he didn’t. For a moment, please step outside the political echo chamber and into the health insurance strategy meetings that I am a part of. Let me share some of the larger picture that is guiding insurance policy. First, let’s look at the size of the problem. The particular issue of policy cancellation affects less than 4 percent of Americans - those who buy individual health insurance directly, rather than the 80 percent who get it from their jobs or government programs, or the 15 percent who have no health insurance at all. As an insurance professional, I know that some plans have always been risks – they’re cheap, but they offer poor coverage. People with this minimal insurance often think they are covered, then they go bankrupt when their medical bills start piling up. But not all the insurance plans being canceled are these minimal coverage plans. Some people really do like their plans, and they’re losing them because of new Obamacare rules. Why? The law standardizes health plans by mandating a basic set of minimum essential benefits

that some of today’s insurance products don’t cover. It also limits annual out-of-pocket expenses to $6,350 for a single person. Plans that do not reflect these changes are not allowed. What if you get dropped? Shop around. You may be able to get help paying for your insurance through Obamacare subsidies, which are available on a sliding scale through the federal marketplace to anyone who earns up to four times the federal poverty level or about $46,000 for a single person this year. Insurance companies have always been quick to discontinue unprofitable plans, cancel coverage for insureds with excessive claims, change benefits or raise prices. This is not very different. This disruption is happening despite Obama saying, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” We insurance advisors always knew that this promise could never be kept. We knew that with the law getting rid of insurance with lesser benefits and weaker financial protections, that there would be some disappointed consumers. While you may or may not agree with the changes, at their core the new rules follow basically sound risk management principles. Short term, it is uncomfortable for those who can’t get what they have always had. Long term, it may help. There is a storm blowing through our world of health insurance, and some people will pay more and some will pay less. We will all be sharing the risk, and in the world of risk management, less is more. Karl Ahlrichs is a Senior Consultant for Gregory and Appel. Karl is a national speaker and author, and is often quoted in the local and national media on health insurance reform issues.

Commentary by Don Knebel

Before heading south to Jerusalem for the last time, Jesus led his little band of Jewish followers about 25 miles north of their base travel around the Sea of Galilee to the region of Caesarea Philippi, a thoroughly Roman city at the foot of Mount Hermon. As recorded in Greek in the Gospel of Matthew, while there Jesus said: “And I tell you that you are Peter (Petros) and on this rock (petra) I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” For hundreds of years, theologians who have never seen where this claim was made have debated its theological meaning. A visit to Caesarea Philippi suggests that Jesus’ words were much more literal than many people recognize. Caesarea Philippi was near an important pagan temple first established by the Greeks, who had built the city and called it “Paneas” in honor of their god, Pan. The temple, important to both Greeks and Romans, surrounded a large opening in a natural rock wall more than 500 feet long and 100 feet high. The Greeks and Romans believed that this opening led directly to the damp and shadowy home of the dead that the Greeks

called Hades. To appease the potentially angry gods who lived in these nether regions, worshippers made sacrifices before idols residing in niches carved into the rock face near the literal “gates of Hades.” Standing in front on the enormous rock wall near Caesarea Philippi, there is no mystery about either the rock or the gates of Hades that Jesus spoke about. The rock was the home of the pagan gods residing in the niches and the gates of Hades was the entrance to the dreaded realm of the dead. Within 30 years of Jesus’ bold claim in front of this rock, churches had been established in his name throughout the lands of the gods of the Roman Empire. One of keys to this rapid growth of Christianity was its promise to overcome the dreary pagan view of an afterlife in Hades. Jesus’ famous statement at Caesarea Philippi seems to have been more prophetic than theological. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Is ‘these ones’ OK?

Commentary by Jordan Fischer

Question: “I ran across an article that you had written in The Southside Times about grammar. Grammar was not grammar guy (and still is not) one of my strong points, but in today’s world I constantly hear people using the term ‘these ones’ instead of just ‘these.’ Is there any way this is correct grammar? It’s not really a major concern in the whole scheme of things, but it just rubs me the wrong way.” (Ed) Answer: Consider, if you will, a bakery counter full of donuts. The counter has four types of donuts – chocolate, glazed, raspberry and cream cheese – arranged in groups from left to right. The clerk behind the counter is ready to sell you as many donuts as you would like, and, being a good and decent person, you’re ready to oblige her. Let’s look at the ways this transaction could occur: • “I want one.” You haven’t provided the clerk with much information. You’re still getting a donut, but it could be any of the four types. • “I want this one.” Now, the clerk knows exactly which type of donut you would like and, in fact, exactly which donut out of that group you would like. “This” acts as a

determiner to the pronoun, “one,” signifying an individual item within a group. When a pronoun like “one” is paired with a determiner, it forms a pronominal – or a pronoun phrase, more or less. • “I want five of these ones.” Here, we still have a pronominal. But is it necessary? Does it function any better than “these” – acting as a pronoun – would alone? If we were to say, “I want five of these,” the clerk would have just as much information as the previous phrase. “These” and “these ones” both serve to indicate a subset of a group of donuts. And while “one” in the pronominal “this one” does double duty by indicating the quantity of donuts desired, it does not in “these ones,” instead acting as an indefinite pronoun. I was unable to find a hard-and-fast rule prohibiting the use of “these ones.” However, it seems to me a redundant and inelegant-sounding phrase, and that alone should be cause to avoid it. If you do come across a rule about this phrase in your travels, I’d love to read it, though. As for me … I’m suddenly craving donuts.

Therapy dogs help people and communities heal in times of tragedy Commentary by Lisa Beals

The tragedy in Newtown, Conn., is nearing its one-year anniversary on Dec. 14. No one can forget the innocence that was lost that day. Twenty young children and six adult staff canines members were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary and the perpetrator’s mother was killed at her home. Somehow, lives go on for the families and the community. Camp Bow Wow understood the need for ongoing healing in the Newtown community and immediately launched Scout’s Angels in response to the searing need to do something for the people of Newtown. As part of the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, Scout’s Angels’ purpose is to train therapy dogs to pair with human therapists to provide emotional assistance to people of all ages in the event of a tragedy. While crisis situations can result in isolation and communication issues, studies show that dogs have immense healing and calming capabilities after trauma. Simply petting a dog can result in physiological changes such as lowering blood pressure, regulating breathing and decreasing stress levels. Additionally, having a dog in the presence of a therapist can better facilitate conversation, ultimately helping to break isolation and open lines of communication.

In August, Camp Bow Wow sent five therapy dogs, their human partner therapists and Camp Bow Wow staff to Newtown. A two-week trip to the grieving community included activities such as reading at the local library and preschool, a visit to a senior citizens’ center and a private dinner for the Sandy Hook families and teachers. They also conducted informational sessions on the benefits of animal assisted therapy and how the Sandy Hook

Promise would continue to benefit the community in the years to come with the help of volunteers and the trained therapy dogs, Nutmeg (a Whippet mix) and Cashew (a Labrador Retriever), who were gifted to Newtown. “These lovable dogs and their therapist partners will spend time in the community with the families that lost loved ones in this tragedy. Our hope is that the healing power of dogs will help the entire community,” said Heidi Ganahl, CEO and founder of Camp Bow Wow. Scout’s Angels also wants to extend its reach by having trained therapy dogs near all of Camp Bow Wow’s 150 camps nationwide. These dogs could be mobilized quickly in the event of a local tragedy. If you are interested in having your dog be a local extension of Scout’s Angels in central Indiana, contact Camp Bow Wow Carmel at carmel@campbowwow.com. Learn more about Scout’s Angels at www.scoutsangels.org.
