Infamous enjoying success

By Dan Domsic •

Local metal band Infamous continues to take the stage and hits the road for a 150-band show this summer. business Comprised of Jon Iosue, Drew Johnson, Jack Rainbolt and Adam Anderson, the band will play Rockapalooza this June in Jackson, Mich. “It’ll be our biggest show to date,” Iosue said. The 14-stage festival features national acts Candlebox, Taproot, Adam Gontier, Mushroomhead and Saliva. “We’re more excited than we are nervous,” Iosue said. He said he thinks the band will be prepared for the show by the time the festival hits this summer. Iosue said the band’s growth since speaking with Current in October 2012 has been larger than expected. “It’s been bigger than a lot of us have expected in this short amount of time,” he said.

Infamous played the Murat Theater Deluxe Room in December as part of the Riley Children’s Hospital Benefit and has played in Terre Haute and Bloomington this year. Iosue said taking the act to new cities was an eye-opening experience, as the band had a chance to see concertgoers start getting into their tunes. They plan to travel to Muncie and Chicago this summer, as well. With more shows and bigger crowds, more fans and more mouths are talking about the band. Iosue said it’s been a mix of positive and negative feedback. As the band gets more shows, it’s adding more to its repertoire, aiming at possibly recording a new EP in the fall. They’re working on original songs now, and recently performed a cover of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” To learn more about Infamous and be directed to their music, visit InFamousTheBand.

Gardening spots are growing

Many hands were at work at the Fishes Community Garden last year, and starting Saturday, gardeners will have the opportunity to work with even more space. At the Holy Family Episcopal Nature Church, 11445 Fishers Pointe Blvd., the garden will have 30 5-foot by 22-foot plots for anyone in the community to plant on at $20 per plot. “If someone is more inexperienced and would rather garden a smaller area, we can do that for them as well,” Joel Bruns, a member of the Fishers Community Garden, said. Excess produce is donated to the “Come-ToMe” Food Pantry at Fishers United Methodist Church, according to garden member Beth Murphy. Bruns said 600 pounds of produce was donated to the food pantry, and the Fishers Community Garden’s goal for this year is 1,000 pounds. “It’s very gratifying to me also, I guess, that I knew that what I could not eat or share with anybody else was going to a food pantry,” Murphy said. “That was really my absolute selling point of putting that garden in, that I knew that there wasn’t going to be waste.” Murphy said individuals and groups, such as a local Boy Scout troop, tend the plots. “I think it gives people the opportunity to know exactly where their food is coming from, to under-

stand what goes into growing food,” Murphy said. “It’s a great educational opportunity. It’s a great opportunity to have great, fresh produce.” She said a variety of foods get planted, and everyone’s personalities shine through the gardening. When some gardeners finish up with their plots for the day, they’ll lend a hand to others that might be struggling, giving everyone a chance to meet and get to know others from all walks of life, Murphy said. This Saturday is Fishers Community Garden’s kick-off. Future gardeners can expect a presentation from a future master gardener, James Keith, on how to prepare a garden, sign-up for plots and get help getting started from volunteers. It starts at 10 a.m.

Five years go by quickly

Commentary by Heather Kestian

“Keep it together, Heather. Keep it, together.” This was my mantra as I walked into our local elementary school family to pick up the enrollment packet for our first child to go to school. I realize the absurdity of having to tell myself to keep it together for an enrollment packet. I realize he is not going to school next week, however, in my mind, this is a major moment. More than five years ago, we welcomed our first bundle of joy into the world. After 40 hours of labor, he sprang into the world with about as much force as the blizzard that was raging outside of the hospital. As a baby, he had a similar temperament as the weather from the day of his birth. He has come a long way from the screamer he used to be and has developed into a fairly mild-mannered not-so-little boy. Fast forward five years and lots of life lessons, and here we are. Here, walking into an elementary school telling myself to keep it together. I calmly walked into the school office, which was quite a pleasant stroll. The administrative assistant at the desk was very nice and explained the paperwork in detail. We went over the paperwork I brought in so that I could pick

up the packet. She told me all about the various forms, including the school supply list. I was nodding my head and thought, “I got all worked up for nothing.” Then, she explained that I needed to go online to complete the enrollment survey, and at that point, we would be done. Then, I almost lost it. I had to remind myself: “Focus, crazy lady, focus! It is only kindergarten!” I pulled it together and listened to the excitement planned for the Kindergarten Round Up. The kids will get to meet the teachers, ride the bus around the parking lot, and walk through the classrooms. I sure hope they have lots of Kleenex on hand – for springtime allergies, of course. Where did five years go? I firmly believe I am going to wake up in what will feel like 24 hours and I will be packing him to go to college. If picking up the packet was this difficult, I should probably request the entire first day of school off from work. I think there is a good chance I will be a mess. Heather Kestian is a Fishers resident and mother. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism, as well as a master’s degree in education. Her family moved to Fishers in 2010.

Students serve as Senate pages Several students from Hamilton County had the chance to serve as Senate Pages in the statehouse during March and April. government Sen. Luke Kenley welcomed Fishers residents Briana Rooke and Peter Werling, among others, during the program. “I had the good fortune of seeing many students from our district this session,” Kenley stated in a news release. “We had a good showing, to say the least. Seeing so many young people at the Senate is inspiring. I hope they gained a lot from their experience, and I hope to see them back soon.” Students that take advantage of the program have an opportunity to tour the Statehouse, interact with their senators and see debates unfold from the chamber floor.

Peter Werling of Fishes acted as a Senate Page.

"Nobody, but nooooobody pays more!"

A new Fishers fitness club provides a solution for busy professionals with families that don’t have enough time in their day Now Open to exercise. Koko FitClub, which opened its doors in March, includes exercise equipment to give members the benefits of a 90-minute workout in just 30 minutes. The idea for the franchise began in 2008, when Mary Obana, president and co-founder of Koko, began to start a family with her husband, Mike Lannon. Obana and Lannon were time-crunched executives looking for a way to continue exercising after the added responsibility of having children.

Teacher by day, Jamie Follis builds heroes and villains by night By Dan Domsic • Just like a superhero out of a comic book, Jamie Follis lives a double life. By day, Follis teaches history classes at Hamilton Southeastern High School. By night, he creates custom action figures inspired by pop culture icons that shape the stories playing out on today’s big screen. Minutes at a time for the past 14 years, Follis has built custom figurines inspired by sci-fi epic and cornerstone “Star Wars” and comic book heroes and villains across the spectrum – from Batman to Hellboy. Along with the customs, Follis cultivated a fan base that fights amongst itself to own his art on eBay, as well as relationships with unforeseeable consequences. Actor and comedian Patton Oswalt (“Young Adult,” “The King of Queens”) recently unveiled a line of action figures that merge “Star Wars” with the styling of exploitation filmmaker Russ Meyer which he commissioned Follis to craft, and another line with a different theme is on the way. Follis and Oswalt connected after a friend pointed out that Oswalt was tweeting about Follis’ repertoire of customs. They chatted back and forth, and before asking Follis to build the “Faster Empire, Strike! Strike!” exploitation line of customized action figures, Oswalt decided he wanted his character, Matt Freehauf, in Diablo Cody’s 2011 film, “Young Adult,” to have the same hobby as Follis. Oswalt said in a blog post that he sent Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody links to Follis’s work. “It struck me as tragic and optimistic that a character as physically broken as Matt Freehauf would have, as a hobby, the customizing of action figures,” Oswalt said in the post. “A better set of legs here, a stronger torso there. Why can’t God do that for him?” “I just thought it was awesome. He’s in a meeting with Cameron Diaz and Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman showing them my web site,” Follis said. “I wish that he would have had me make the figures for him in the movie, but he wanted

them to be not very good, like his character does it for fun.” Follis makes the figures out of a need to create and build. There is no blueprint. There is no drawing – just an idea as a starting point. From there, Follis sculpts the character, sometimes making something from scratch, and sometimes taking parts from 30 to 40 other action figures to create an entirely new figure. “I kind of like to take these discarded toys, break them down and make something new out

of them,” he said. Each character gets a three- to five-page back-story to fully flesh him or her out, Follis said. His ability to create the figures not only garnered the attention of Oswalt, it put Follis on panels at last year’s Star Wars Celebration (which also included an opportunity to meet George Lucas), a commissioned line of figures for a TV pilot in the vein of Cartoon Network’s slapstick action-figure show “Robot Chicken” and deals to create small runs of figures for movies. For such an involved hobby that’s gained him high-profile fans, it really is a second-life he quietly conducts. Follis said he works on a handful of figures assembly-line style for a few minutes at a time

when his daughter, Katie, and wife, Tammie, head to bed. Going by his online handle, Sillof, he said very few realized he was the craftsman behind the figures. He said the hobby never really crosses into the teaching realm, outside of conventions, with the exception of sometimes mentioning he likes “Star Wars” or a student unknowingly stumbling upon his work. But even with the quiet, spare-time approach, family still plays a role in the hobby. During his youth, Follis’s mom was supportive, and he and his father, a machinist, built replicas of “Star Wars” lightsabers to bond. Now, a small chair sits on one side of his work station for his daughter to join him primarily during summer breaks. She paints statues, and they build Disney prop replicas together. “I feel this need to be always doing something, whether it’s making models with my daughter or making the props,” he said.

Growing tolerance It is our position that the Anne Frank Center USA Sapling Project serves as an important reminder of the need for tolerance. One of 11 saplings from the 170-year-old white horse chestnut tree that was Anne Frank’s only connection to nature during the two years her family hid from the Nazis during the German occupation of the Netherlands, was recently planted in the Anne Frank Peace Garden at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The sapling is a living monument to Anne’s pursuit of peace and tolerance, and at the same time will serve as a powerful reminder of the horrors caused by hate and bigotry and the need for collective action when humanity fails. As Anne wrote in her diary, “April is glorious, not too hot and not too cold, with occasional light showers. Our chestnut tree is in leaf, and here and there you can already see a few small blossoms.” May tolerance grow in tandem with Anne’s beautiful chestnut tree. Visit the Anne Frank Peace Garden and enjoy the blossoms in honor of Anne and those like her. And like those who made the Sapling Project possible, there is more good in the world than evil.

Is collusion the real threat? Commentary by Terry Anker There are scores of expressions to describe the disposition of government officials to take our money and use it like a venture fund manager. The current nomenclature calls it government entrepreneurship. One wonders if it is an assistant, barrier or competitor with a healthy free-market. Entrepreneurs do great things and change the world, but they also take breathtaking financial risks and routinely fail. The natural government monopoly boasts a gaggle of advantages outpacing even the most competitive private company. In a world where rapacious private businesses are attracted to easy money and public guarantees, shouldn’t government “assistance” be limited to the broadest possible private entrepreneur participation? When speculating on who can claim credit for entrepreneurial success, some would openly assert that the individual entrepreneur “didn’t do that.” Even if one assumes veracity in this supposition, would it likewise be accurate to claim

that government “didn’t do that either?” Indiana is in the black. In fact, the current governor is locked in some James T. Kirk like battle with an alien Republican legislature about the return of some of those tax dollars to those who were overcharged for the services. A balanced budget amendment prevents official largess being unchecked. Yet, we still set aside dollars to spawn home-grown high-tech companies. We build and maintain infrastructure. And, we directly support countless stadiums and billionaire sport team owners. The pressure to undertake ever more expensive and elaborate schemes from entrepreneurial government officials is intense but no more so than the rent-seeking tendencies of entrepreneurs inside the private sector. Is collusion between these two forces the real threat? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

You’re noticing something different about Current today, aren’t you? You found the paper on which the news and ads are printed to be a little brighter, right? You also noticed that the pages are “stitched” by two staples on the fold, meaning no more loose sheets, correct? You also detected that the paper is ever-soslightly shorter and narrower, we’re guessing. It all is owed to a decision we made to move our printing efforts to a new location. Cox Media Group of Franklin, Ohio, effective with this edition, handles the printing, inserting and packaging tasks for all Current products and the Carmel Business Leader, as well as titles produced by our “sister” company, Times-Leader Publications (The Southside Times, Hendricks County ICON, Center Grove ICON, and the Southside Business Leader and the Hendricks County Business Leader). We’re excited about the change, because we believe it will provide a better reading experience. We’re still printing on paper that contains post-consumer content, and we’re still using low-rub, soy-based ink, which we believe to be important. Our art director, Zach Ross, has made subtle changes to the appearance of the news report, including new typefaces, story identifiers and different ways to package the news. By virtue of his moving ads to the “outside” edges of the paper, he has created something of a news well, which will accommodate a changing news presentation.

We live, breathe and eat violence Commentary by Dan Domsic

along with it are frustrating, if not bordering on the absurd. For weeks it’s been common place for me to log onto Facebook, and invariably, shake my head at least once at how far discourse has fallen. But then again, that might just be my social circle. And then I wonder whether the world’s been this bleak for quite a while, and the fact that at the push of the button I can tell someone in California how wrong he or she is without fear of much reprisal, and then I can dredge up a bunch of articles about all the grisly things that have happened makes it quite apparent that it has indeed always been filled with tragedy. We just have the ability to learn about it and to a greater detail in a timely fashion now. But with everything sad in life, there is a beautiful flip side. Because of how we can communicate, we can honor the people who do good for us and band together. Let’s band together. I’m now holding coffee hours at Hearthstone Coffee House & Pub on Mondays from 3 to 5 p.m.

Sometimes the production cycle at a weekly newspaper can be flat-out frustrating. For last week, I wrote editor’s take a column about people that are shining examples of goodness that can be achieved with strength, hard-work and soul. The point being, we sometimes need to look close to home for happy stories. Then, someone or some people, set off bombs at the Boston Marathon, and everyone, including myself, was reminded just how low, and awful, society can treat itself, and my point was sadly reinforced. Watching others react is fascinating and sad. Conspiracy theorists screamed about “false flag” operations, ordinary people were raised to heroic heights, and we were all thankful for the people that when danger strikes and everyone else runs away from it, they run straight into it. All I know is that a lot of people were hurt, and American lives were lost, and I hope by the time this in your mailbox, the perpetrator(s) will be closer to feeling the full might of justice. Is this how we are to live from now on? It just seems like all we do is live, breathe and eat violence. The conversation about guns and mental health continues to play out, and the fingerpointing, conjecture and talking points that go

Not sure I still want ‘it’

Commentary by Danielle Wilson


Despite being a happily married, over-40, ginger from Kentucky, I can apparently still attract the men. Of course, that’s not humor necessarily a good thing. One of my sisters and I decided to road trip to Atlanta for the NCAA basketball semi final game. You may recall my fateful trip to New Orleans last April which culminated in my screaming at Doo through tears, “I am not driving you home!” So this year we left husbands at home for some quality sister time. Louisville won the game, there was very little drama, and apart from never being able to locate the stupid ESPN Gameday set-up − where were you, Jay Bilas? − we had a marvelous time. What I didn’t anticipate, though, was how not having a man constantly at my side somehow equated to, “I’m single and looking for love.” And before you ask, yes, my wedding ring was on and no, I wasn’t dressed in brothel attire. Bachelor number one? A 50-something farmer from Wisconsin at the game. Sure he weighed a little more than 350 pounds and my seat kept catching his thigh fat every time I stood, but Jerry and I hit it off. Maybe too well, in fact. Even after I told him about my four children and brilliant husband, he continued to pay me compliments and insinuate that we should meet up. Luckily the thrill of the victory carried

me out of the arena before I had to address the issue. Sorry, Jerry! Next up, a college student from Michigan. As Sis and I exited the 100-level area of the dome, a very good-looking guy approached, flashed me a gorgeous smile, and said something about tickets. Huh? What? Yes! And when I handed it over, he went straight for the hug. I don’t even embrace friends, let alone strangers, and I know he just wanted my seat, but he had a dimple! No, wait. I have a son not much younger than him. Eeewwww. Mrs. Robinson? I don’t think so. Finally, a total dingbat who was only in town for the free concerts. When I went to the hotel bar later that night, El Ding launched into an abusive diatribe on how badly Michigan was going to beat Louisville in the championship. He obviously considered his little speech some kind of courtship ritual because as soon as my fries arrived and I turned to leave, he offered to buy me a drink. And not as an apology. No thanks, ya loser. I’d rather be with Jerry. So it seems I’ve still “got it.” Just not sure if I want it. Peace out.

Moose tracks in my lasagna Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Warning: There’s another case of food impropriety in the news. A popular frozen dinner option is being removed from ovens humor over in Scandinavia in another half-baked scandal. Families were waiting to feast on Moose Lasagna, but as the cheese was becoming bubbly and browned, food officials exposed that there was pork in some of these prepared selections. Everyone in Sweden is asking: What is pork doing in my lasagna? People in the U.S. are asking: What is moose doing in your lasagna? Jews in Sweden, all fourteen of them, were upset because the company revealed that the 17,000 portions sold contained 1-percent pork, which the company admitted meant the product was not 100-percent Kosher. Or as my rabbi would say, “Not Kosher.” The bottom line is that even though the manufacturer is pulling the pork-tainted casserole off the shelves, the entrée is still a favorite of many consumers. After all, who doesn’t like pulled pork? For the second time in two months, it’s the conglomerate IKEA that is responsible for this food fiasco. Wanting to be proactive in this debacle, the company set up an 800 number so customers could, in their words, “lodge a moose lasagna complaint.” Everyone thought this seemed like a good idea except the local Moose Lodge, where they got a lot of crank phone calls.

IKEA is basically a furniture company that also sells frozen food, a technique to expand sales like the U.S. Postal Service decision to sell safari hats and dorky shorts so you can look like your letter carrier. IKEA has had a history of mislabeling products, once advertising futons as beds, a ruse that almost worked until people got them home and tried to sleep on them. The details of the porcine-laced lasagna were first revealed by the Swedish newspaper Dagbkadet. Coincidentally, dagbkadet is exactly what a Kentucky farmer says if he finds not moose, but a mouse, in his lasagna. One French newspaper scared the beejeebers out of their readers when they inadvertently mistranslated the story and Parisian diners thought there was meat in their mousse. Even hairstylists got the facts wrong and thought there was pork in their styling products. IKEA is not sure how to win back its customers after so many have suffered this unjust ingestion. PR experts found a snappy slogan they will use to promote the product to ensure people know the issue has been addressed. “You’ve got game!”

We actually ‘prommed’ at prom Commentary by Mike Redmond

It is getting to be Prom Season, so naturally my mind turns to memories of my own prom, back during the Flintstonian Era, humor when the Lakeland High School gym was transformed into a magical wonderland and the evening lived up to its theme, “Disaster Under The Stars.” No, not really. I think the theme was “Moonlight and Magnolias” or something to do with the Antebellum Southern United States, which of course made absolutely no sense for kids living in Anabaptist Northern Indiana. I guess the prom committee had all seen “Gone With The Wind” before they voted. Good thing it wasn’t “Guadalcanal Diary.” Lakeland had been open something like eight years by the time my class’s prom came along, which means it was already mired in tradition, such as having the VersaTones, a three-piece band from Elkhart (drums, sax, accordion), back to provide the music, and some cheesy stage hypnotist to making certain of us crow like roosters or revert to our kindergarten selves. As you might have guessed, the faculty chose the entertainment because we students could not be trusted to come up with something tasteful. Of course they were right, but that’s beside the point. Another tradition was that we actually prommed. That is, at a certain point in the evening, a signal went out and we all lined up behind Mrs. Booth, the stern business teacher who chose the

band, and clomped a few laps around the gym floor while our parents looked on from the mezzanine. Most of our parents, I should say. My mother made it abundantly clear that she was not about to drive 12 miles into town to watch a bunch of kids walking in circles wearing rented clothes. Oh, yes, the clothes. This was the era of skyblue and Pepto-pink tuxedoes with lapels like car doors, Ricky Ricardo ruffled shirts, and bow ties the size of cecropia moths. Except for me. As befits a shy, conservative type such as myself, I chose a plain black formal suit. Compared to my pastel-hued classmates, I looked Amish. Wait. It was double-breasted. Make that Mennonite. The prom itself went along as they all did back then. Couples pulled up in gleaming washed and waxed family cars, walked through the same doors they walked through every school day, and made their way to the aforementioned gymnasium-slash-wonderland, a beauteous riot of crepe paper and balloons with only the faintest whiff of sweatsocks. There we waited in line while some sophomore announced each couple to a room full of people who couldn’t care less, all of us just having seen one another out in the hallway. Oh, the magic of it all.

Menopause: A celebration of ‘the change’

By Patricia Rettig •

The 40th Anniversary Season heats up in a flash as “Menopause, The Musical” makes its debut at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Rd., Indianapolis. This hilarious and fun celebration of women and “the change” is live on stage now through May 12. Written by Jeanie Linders, “Menopause, The Musical” is set in a department store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. The all-female cast makes fun of their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between these diverse women in this uplifting production that includes parodies from the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s. It culminates with a salute to women who are experiencing “the change.” Beef & Boards’ production features Indianapolis residents Judy Bridgewater and Tiffanie Bridges. Bridgewater is a native Hoosier who owned the Young Artists Studio of Performing Arts for more than 30 years and currently teaches private voice lessons at Lawrence Central High School. Bridges has lived in Indianapolis for 14 years and has performed in productions of “Menopause, The Musical” for eight years in nearly 40 cities. Joining these ladies are Dee Etta Rowe (last seen at Beef & Boards in the 2008 production of “The Sound of Music”) and Rebecca Fisher, who is making her Beef & Boards debut.

Artists announced for open house By Dan Domsic •

About 70 artists, six of them from Hamilton County, will open their Exhibition studios to visitors during the two-day, 20th annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House Friday and Saturday. Fishers residents Bruce Moore and Sally Moore will participate in the event, which is designed to give patrons the chance to see artwork in the setting where it’s created. The married duo shares a 900-square-foot studio (B-345) at the Stutz. They met when Sally was directing her own gallery on Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis, and Bruce inquired about whether she wanted to see his work. Bruce uses water colors or water media and creates his works on a 100-percent polypropylene material called Yupo. Sally is a trained jeweler who uses sterling and 14 ct. gold precious metals, as well as exotic stones, for her designs. She said some of the hand-picked gems never before shown will go on display at the show,

and Bruce will have two abstract series on display at the open house. Another of Bruce’s works went on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art on Sunday. “The open house has become one of the city’s rites of spring,” said Tom Potter, a photographer and co-chair of the 2013 open house. “This year, there’s an even more diverse mix of studios and art to see than ever.” Other Hamilton County artists displaying at the open house are Wendy Franklin and Laura LaForge, both of Carmel, Katie Clayton of Noblesville and Mallory Marty, also of Fishers. Artwork ranges from paintings, drawings and photography, to sculpture, jewelry and furniture. The event also offers a rare chance to see vintage cars on display in the historic Stutz car factory. The event is from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. Friday and 2 to 7 p.m. Saturday at 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis. Advance tickets can be purchased for $10 at Old National Bank branches and the Stutz Business Office, or for $14 at Eventbrite or $15 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.

Treating skin pigment problems Commentary by Brooke Tetrault Treating pigment-related skin conditions like sun spots can actually be one of the most dramatic improvements DERMATOLOGY in the overall tone and youthfulness of skin. Skin cells called melanocytes produce pigment called melanin, which is the source of skin’s color and a key component of defense against UV exposure. This pigment production can also be the result of exposure to heat and hormonal shifts. When melanocytes no longer respond to the normal rules of growth and melanin production, perhaps from repeated UV damage, they can result in malignancy. It is important to consult with a physician to rule out any suspicion for abnormal lesions, such as melanoma, before undergoing any cosmetic treatment. A yearly dermatologic skin check and proper sunscreen is always recommended. Always be careful if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. For benign, unwanted pigment concerns, one can be fairly aggressive with laser treatments. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), a flashlamp device, is probably the most popular procedure used for the treatment of pigment. It involves targeting and breaking down the melanin pigment in the

skin. Patients experience initial darkening of the pigment, which is then naturally exfoliated – or helped along greatly with medical-grade topical skin care during the course of the subsequent days. Medical-grade topical skin care can involve hydroquinone. Less effective treatments like soy-based and lower strength products overthe-counter are mostly recommended for maintenance at best. Hydroquinone has more than 30 years of use in skin care. It can also be misleadingly known as “bleaching” cream, but only inhibits the production of extra melanin. It is a substance that directly inhibits the key enzyme responsible for the final step of melanin (pigment) production, unlike less effective overthe-counter products. In prescription strength, medical-grade quality, over a limited body surface area and under the care of a physician, it is safe. There are so many ways to help treat unwanted skin pigment, and it is always best to seek the recommendation of your skin care physician for dramatic results. Brooke Tetrault is director of operations at ClarityMD and can be reached at 571-8900 or info@

Sometimes boring is best

Commentary by CJ McClanahan

Easily my favorite passage in recent memory came from Patrick Lencioni’s “The Advantage.” “Many leaders fail move the needle to over communicate because they get bored saying the same thing over and over again. This is understandable. Intelligent people want to be challenged with new messages and new problems to solve, and they get tired of revisiting the same topics. But that doesn’t matter. The point of leadership is not to keep the leader entertained, but to mobilize people around what is important.” Type A leaders who innovate, create and get crap done all have the same flaw – they get bored easily. You can see it on their faces. The minute someone begins to talk about an issue that they feel has been addressed they check out. It’s rude, selfish and disrespectful. Unfortunately, most leaders think that it’s everyone else’s fault for moving too slow and insisting on reviewing mundane day-today tactics. Ten years ago, I thought just like most leaders. I was convinced that I was a lot smarter than everyone else and got frustrated with topics that didn’t interest me. Ten years and hundreds of clients later, I now realize that I was very wrong. The most successful executives I have

coached are not the smartest or those that come up with the most ideas. The professionals who build the most profitable companies share one simple trait – they are committed to practicing the fundamentals. In other words, they are boring. These leaders have regular weekly meetings where they follow the exact same agenda. They hold annual performance reviews with every employee. They analyze the sales pipeline religiously and never fail to ask the question, “What do you need to do to close more sales?” When I reinforce this concept to my clients, they often ask, “When does this routine activity cease to be so tedious?” It doesn’t.. If you are like most professionals and crave a new challenge every 45 minutes, this type of routine behavior will always bore you. So, how do you stay interested? Remain focused on your goals and carefully measure your progress. As soon as you gain some momentum and realize success you’ll find it a whole lot easier to repeat the behavior that got you there. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

In the wake of tragedy

Commentary by Mike Colaw

Sitting in my office recently, I was preparing to answer a question asked by Dr. Drury out of Wesley Seminary, “Who SPIRITUALITY is Jesus Christ for us today?” He was referencing Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s famous question he asked of the churches during the darkest days of the Nazi regime. While I was preparing to reflect on this, breaking news came up on the Internet, “At least 2 dead, more than a dozen hurt after two bombs explode at Boston Marathon.” (Fox News) This question is relevant right here, right now. My heart breaks for these people – the confusion, the chaos, and people asking why. Because of the recent atrocities, Bonheoffer’s question now echoes through my mind in a much more emotional way. Let me restate his quote just a bit in an attempt to communicate the question’s intent. How does our belief in Jesus practically affect how we engage this world? Here are four things that come to mind: Jesus teaches that we must take care of those who are hurting. In fact, this demonstrates our tangible love of God. Matthew 25:40, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Jesus teaches us to offer hope beyond this broken world. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Jesus teaches us to usher in his nature, or

“the fruit of the spirit.” Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Jesus teaches us to love sacrificially like Christ. We should care for those who are in need, even if it costs us personally. Serve those in need; don’t just give money to good organizations, get involved and help. John 13:34, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” So the next question is for those who call themselves Christian. Are you doing this with your life or are you just someone who agrees with the theological premise of Christ as Savior? Don’t just talk about Jesus – live like He did.

We should care for those who are in need, even if it costs us personally. Serve those in need; don’t just give money to good organizations, get involved and help.

A GIRL’S GUIDE TO PROM DRESSES Strapless This is a perfect style to choose if you’re looking to show off arms and shoulders. Add a simple clutch to maintain ladylike elegance. Short Show off some leg in a prom-perfect mini! Look for this style in a fun sequin fabric to really spice things up!

THE OVERSIZED TOP KNOT The top knot has gotten super-sized! Go for a big ballerina bun when you really want to make a statement. Start by creating a tight pony at the crown of your head, and back comb it into a wild mess. Then, tame it with a paddle brush as you work it into your desired shape. For the most dramatic look, make sure the height of the updo aligns with your chin.

One-Shoulder The one shoulder silhouette is a great alternative to strapless and it looks great with hair up or down. Pair it with a skinny belt and a simple bag and pumps. Open Back Choose an open back style for an unexpected dose of glamour. Pair this style with a simple up-do. Long Sleeves Long sleeves are a great way to balance out a short dress. This style looks great in a bold color. Full Skirt The classic look of a full skirt is definitely a great go-to for prom. Keep your hair and accessories simple and let the dress speak for itself.

Mother Nature gives us a break Commentary by Randy Sorrell Let these modest words be the inspiration you may require to finally get the “spring cleaning” accomplished in the landoutdoors scape beds. Fortunately Mother Nature has provided a little grace this year with cloudy, cooler temperatures and later bloom cycles. The ornamental grasses have yet to green up, which means we still have a little time to dirty our fingernails. First, I like to start with cleaning the gutters so resulting debris is removed before mulching. Then, go for any larger debris that has likely accumulated in the beds. Second, focus on severely pruning overgrown shrubs that need fit back into the landscape using heavy loppers or long blade pruners. Reblooming roses, spirea, viburnum, potentilla and forsythia are ideal candidates for this rejuvenation and often behave like vigorous new shrubs filled with enthusiasm. Cut ornamental grasses back to the ground with electrical or gas powered hedge trimmers and snip back last year’s

perennials with hand pruners. Third, it’s amazing what a freshly cut edge on landscape beds can do for crisp appearance. A sharp, straight edged spade is required for this heart-pounding task. Then complete a detailed cleaning of the beds. Finally, the fun begins. Carefully apply the appropriate fertilizer (all purpose 12.12.12 with a separate flowering shrub fertilizer on those jewels) and pre-emergent weed control. Mulch is the most important component of the process, and I get ridiculously choosy about the type of product. Ask for premium mulch with no fillers of ground up railroad ties, pallets or sand. If you have not tried the brown or black color enhanced mulch, give it a shot. It holds its color all year! This process will set you up for a low-maintenance season of healthy plants and sharp beds.

One of those days? Help is just around the corner.

There are things in nature that appear worse than they are, just as in life. And gardening is a haughty manipulation of nagardening ture where we only win part of the time. That being said, I thought I’d offer some comfort to help you begin this gardening season on a positive note. Buckle up – here are the top five things not to sweat this year, in no particular order. • Lichen on the trees is probably my favorite no-sweat plant issue. It can look like mold on the branches and trunk, when actually it’s part algae/part fungus, and it’s a good indicator that the environment is clean. Score! • Preventing crabgrass … it’s too late. Treat with herbicide or pull like the dickens and make a mental note to apply preemergent granules next March. • Sealing the pruning cuts you’ve made to your tree. Trees will recover from this naturally, assuming the pruning is done properly, and the tree is healthy. Anything you apply to the “wound” is

DISPATCHES Containers clutch for gardening in tight spaces – If you want to grow some plants but don’t have the space for a traditional garden, just make sure the container you get for the plant is deep enough. Typically, vegetables need containers that are 14 to 18 inches deep, but vegetables that have root systems that run especially deep need a container with a minimum depth of 18 inches. –

only going to impede healing and could potentially cause issues for you later. Skip it. • Mulching, if you are tight on money or don’t have the time. Your garden isn’t going to turn on you if you skip a year. Sure, it looks pretty and (I think) smells nice, but your soil can take a pass just once if it has to. Consider turning the existing over to refresh it, instead. • Spraying for “all the bugs!” The ingredient you spray to control the real pest is the same that will wipe out the bees and butterflies. If it’s a must, use a systemic insecticide that’s taken up through the roots into the plant for feeder pests to ingest and suffer from, rather than knocking off the innocent bystanders, too. I leave you with one last thought. Gardening is a hobby where you can get down and dirty with no shame. Take that and run with it. Happy gardening!

Be prepared – Flare-ups on the grill can char your food and trick you into thinking it’s done when the insides aren’t completely cooked. A squirt bottle full of water at the ready to keep those flare-ups in check is handy for controlling the grill. – Key ingredients – Want to make a signature pizza at home with ingredients out of your own garden? Make sure you include rosemary, thyme and onions. Plant at least two varieties of tomatoes specifically for sauce. –

Patio planning – If you’re planning on building a new patio, keeping in mind how many people you plan to entertain is crucial. Mock up chairs and tables in the backyard so you have an idea of just how big your new patio needs to be. – Warmth on the move – With summer nights approaching, sitting by a night-time fire is a viable pastime. Small fire bowls or other small fire pits give you the ability to move things around in the backyard. –

Jack-and-Jill can stop squabbles Commentary by David Decker

As anyone who grew up with siblings can attest, having multiple children share a bathroom can create a difficult situation. indoors Most mornings it seems like everyone needs to use the bathroom at the exact same time, leading to squabbles, hassles and running late. If you are looking for a new solution, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom may be the perfect addition to your home. “Jack-and-Jill” refers to a shared bathroom that is connected by two separate bedrooms. Sitcom fans may remember that all six Brady Bunch kids shared a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. If it worked for them, it can certainly work for your family. Let’s take a look at a few ways to design a Jack-and-Jill bathroom that your kids will love. Privacy is the main benefit of a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The best Jack-and-Jill designs feature a layout that separates the various areas of the bathroom, like the shower and sink areas. That way, one child can be taking a shower while another brushes his teeth without having to compromise any privacy. Jack-and-Jill bathrooms usually feature separated amenities that allow each child to have their own space in the bathroom. So, you may want to install two sinks, two mirrors, two linen closets and two cabinets if space allows. Doubling up helps cut down on crowding and makes it easier to share the space. Cabinet storage can

also help you keep things organized and running smoothly in a frequently used bathroom. Ample storage will cut down on clutter and ensure that each sibling knows where his or her toiletries are located. Kids have a knack for making watery messes in the bathroom. So you’ll probably want to select bathroom flooring that’s equipped to handle spills. Ceramic or porcelain tiles are always a good bet accompanied by a tile baseboard for easy clean up. Once you’ve decided on the layout and flooring, you can start planning the fun design aspects of the bathroom. For a kid’s bathroom, you’ll probably want to plan for versatility. Choose neutral, durable plumbing fixtures and cabinetry designs that can match any design scheme. From there, you can create a fun design backdrop that can be changed once the kids outgrow it.
