Wambui Bahati took on the role of different people facing domestic violence. (Submitted photo)

Domestic violence must be admitted By Dan Domsic •

Last year, 1,765 calls were made to Hamilton County police departments to report domestic disturbances. Scott Fadness, town manager advocacy and Alternatives, Inc. board member, hosted an awareness event for the social organization that serves women and children that are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The Alternatives shelter is located in Anderson, but Hamilton County residents are the second highest group of people that use it, according to Fadness. The program was titled, “I Am Domestic Violence” after performer and speaker Wambui Bahati’s presentation, “I Am Domestic Violence.” “It doesn’t look like I’m going anywhere any time soon, because until you decide to talk about me, until you decide to take me out of the closet, until you decide that I really do exist, until you decide that I really am a problem, then fasten your seatbelts,” Bahati said as domestic violence personified. “It’s going to be a bumpy ride.” Bahati stressed domestic violence is a problem that won’t go away as long as people refrain from

talking about it – taking on various roles and characters to show the breadth of the issue and how it impacts everyone of all ages. One role even reflects on her battle with sexual assault and ensuing mental illness. Bahati said that for years she didn’t realize one of the characters she portrayed was actually her, the denial being both real and part of the act. “Whatever the trauma is, you gotta talk to somebody,” Bahati said. She said even if a person can’t find someone to trust in an immediate social circle, there are places like Alternatives that can help. “You just can’t keep that in,” she said. “It’s going to come out, and mine came out in mental illness.” Some of the other scenarios she covered included the ramifications of bullying, a young son abusing an elderly mother through theft and, eventually, violence, a daughter being paralyzed with fear of an abusive father and a man manipulating women with promises of marriage. The performance was followed by other stories and information about Alternatives. To learn more about the services Alternatives offers, visit

Gear up, ‘Star Wars’ fans

“ I’m excited xcited to provide e imaging services more to more patients.”

By Dan Domsic •

“Star Wars” fans have a chance to prove how strong they are with the force this Saturday at the Fishers Public Library. diversions For the first tim, the library is holding its “Star Wars” Family Festival, with activities for children throughout the day. Special features go into hyper-speed starting at 11 a.m. with a showing of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” From 1 to 3 p.m. fans can get their faces painted, and they are encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters. A costume contest will be judged at 2 p.m. There to make sure fans aren’t geared up to fight the Empire or Rebel Alliance on their own, members of the Bloodfin Garrison of the 501st Legion will be on hand to even the fight. The 501st Legion is a group of “Star Wars” fans committed to the epic science fiction series, dressing up as Storm Troopers and marquee characters at conventions and other events. They’ll be on hand from 2 to 4 p.m. At 3 p.m., “Star Wars” displays also will be judged. Fishers resident Jamie Follis, a recent Current cover-story subject and movie buff, is showing a film he created that shows the striking similarities between the original George Lucas film and the flicks that inspired it.

Park plans are finally under way By Dan Domsic •

One of the last pieces of the Geist Annexation Agreement is falling into place with the Town of Fishers pursuing a new park at Cynthenature anne Road and East 101st Street. The Fishers Town Council took action at its April 15 meeting on the park, approving a $217,000 contract with Rundell Ernstberger Associates, LLC for architectural services. Town Manager Scott Fadness said Rundell Ernstberger is responsible for the first phase of designing the park – defining the scope of the project. Council Vice President Pete Peterson said the project was outlined in the Geist Annexation Agreement’s financial plan when the area came into Fishers’ fold, along with the new fire station at 101st Street and Florida Road. Peterson said uses for the park were discussed by the Parks Advisory Committee and Parks and Recreation Dept. last year. Peterson said they came up with several ideas for the new park, which still does not have an official name, trying to avoid a new iteration of Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve or another ball park (a separate process was underway for another sports-related park).

“We wanted to look at it as a very usable park that wasn’t field sports specific,” Peterson, who was part of the PAC last year, said. Some of the ideas that were thrown out there included an area for remote controlled airplanes, as well as a nature trail that featured suspension bridges and look-out points, according to Peterson. Options are being considered for the park, but no concrete plans are set. With the battle over Geist’s annexation long over, why has it taken this long for steps to be taken on the park? Peterson and Fadness cite economic downturn and development slowing down in the park’s area. “When the annexation was completed, it really kind of hit at the heart of the recession,” Peterson said. With developers once again petitioning the council for zoning changes and other construction-related issues, Peterson said there is a resurgence in building, with much of the interest being in developing the east side of Fishers. According to a council action form, construction is slated to start in November this year, with planning and design deadlines, as well as a fourweek period of bidding a contract, scheduled throughout this spring, summer and fall.

Process to become a city changes By Dan Domsic •

With a quick signature by Gov. Mike Pence, Senate Bill 343 will become law, making specific demands of political government subdivisions that plan to reorganize. In short – the political process the Town Of Fishers went through during last year’s reorganized city vs. second-class city vs. town referenda question will have different parameters for political entities looking to do the same in 2014 and beyond. It passed the house on April 2. According to, the bill nixes the need for a reorganization committee to draft a reorganization plan, instead shifting the responsibility of putting together a plan on

legislative bodies. Town Manager Scott Fadness said the town staff doesn’t have an overall opinion of the bill. He said with Fishers residents deciding to shift to a second-class city, the bill doesn’t pertain to the town. When asked whether the bill made the political merger process more or less difficult, he said, “I don’t think it’s the process so much. It’s really the conversation with your residents that’s probably the most difficult.” According to Openstates, the bill also prohibits people or organizations with formal or informal contracts with a subdivision looking to reorganize from spending money “to promote a position on the public question regarding reorganization.” Current in Fishers will continue to explore the issue.

Assistance League raises $94k – On April 13, the Assistance League of Indianapolis held a fundraising gala at the Ritz Charles. Guests were treated to an Italian-themed evening of bidding on items at the silent auction, dining and a presentation by emcee Beth Vaughan, morning anchor from RTV6 Good Morning Indiana. AAA Hoosier Motor Club was recognized by president Marcia Hoffbauer as a long standing in-kind and financial supporter of Assistance League of Indianapolis. Guests also entered into some friendly competition during a live auction while bidding on items including an apartment in the South of France, Colts suite tickets and dinner for eight by Chef Tony Hanslits. All of this generosity translated into raising about $94,000 to provide services for the socially and economically underserved in central Indiana.

Fishers considering tax increase By Dan Domsic •

The Fishers Town Council has until the end of the year to enact up to a 1-percent tax increase that may fund future economic development opportunities the town is government pursuing. House Bill 1070 gives Fishers council, as well as the Cloverdale town council, the ability to impose the food and beverage tax, according to Council has through Dec. 31 to make a move on the opportunity. If they choose to make the food and beverage tax a reality, it can be used against the town’s property tax levy or for economic development. Council President John Weingardt said the council likely will start making a move on its options this summer or fall. He said public input will be part of the process, but is not sure of exactly how that aspect of the process will look. Weingardt said the tax increase could mean as much as $1.4 million in extra income.

He said communities around Fishers implement the tax, and it could be yet another tool for making economic development deals happen. “We’ve been fiscally conservative throughout the years, and we’ll continue to be that way,” Weingardt said. “But this is another way to bring economic development to Fishers and another tool we can use to accomplish that.” Weingardt said he could not comment on any opportunities the town is pursuing in terms of those deals. “We’re looking at a number of opportunities for Fishers,” Weingardt said. “That’s the one thing about Fishers, there’s so much undeveloped property out there that we’ve got a blank canvas, and certainly we want to do our best to paint a masterpiece for a community as best we can from an economic developer’s perspective.” The food and beverage tax’s history reaches back to the funding of Lucas Oil Stadium. Local governments had the opportunity to opt for it then. Fishers passed on the opportunity, but is now getting a second chance.

Artist uses discarded cigarettes to take a stand By Dan Domsic • The most repeated element of Fishers resident Emma Benschop’s work on display this month at town hall is a cigarette butt. A Hamilton Southeastern High School senior, Benschop collected thousands of cover story cigarette butts throughout last summer (for four months total) to create a three-dimensional piece of art titled, “Smoke Free Indy.” Last summer, legislation that would ban smoking in many establishments, such as bars and restaurants, successfully made it through the various channels and became a reality for much of Central Indiana. “If you wanted to tag it in one line, it would be, ‘You are what you smoke,’” she said. Her original inspiration for the project was a friend telling her she should create a sculpture of lungs made completely out of cigarettes after their social circle started noticing the amount of cigarette remnants cluttering the outdoor lounge area at a local Starbucks before the ban cleared the air. She wanted to do something bigger than just lungs. “I thought this is more impactful,” she said. “It fills you up as you do it. The more you smoke, the more smoke you have inside of you.” Benschop, who will be studying art at New York University this fall, intends to make a statement with every piece of art she creates. “Any time that art can communicate and say something to an audience, I think it’s even more meaningful,” Bob Gabbert, an advanced placement art teacher at HSE, said. “We can always look at work and appreciate the talents and the subject matter that goes into it. When it has a message, it’s more meaningful.” Traveling to different spots around the area, including a WalMart for its cigarette disposal cones, Benschop slowly amassed enough spent cigarettes to build a statement. Weird looks and odd questions were a part of the experience, but Benschop said getting questions from by

onlookers was rare. She said one person at Starbucks inquired if she had a collection going, but that was the extent of questioning. Utilizing a ton of tape and an Exacto knife, Benschop created a cast of herself one extremity at a time, with her sister helping out with parts such as the arms. The final product is a character sitting atop a seat lined with cigarette cartons while smoking a cigarette. Gabbert had a chance to see the piece up close and personal when Benschop finished it last year. “She brought it in to finish it, and of course, the room just stunk,” he said. Gabbert said as an AP student, Benschop had to complete three projects during the summer leading up to her senior year. “Smoke Free Indy” was her fourth piece for the summer. “The process was part of the art, too,” Gabbert said. “The actions that she did and communicating with people about what she was doing, I think that was a beneficial experience of its own.” The statement on smoking and its impact on the surrounding area is just one piece of a recurring theme Benschop worked on during the past year. Benschop said her concentration was on consumer culture’s waste, with other pieces being made out of other widely discarded items like pen caps and burnt-out matches. “I try to use materials that people generally just throw away when they’re done with just to show you how much we waste, because if I use a lot of one specific item, then you can see the volume of things that people just forget about and throw away,” Benschop said.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Suddenly, the skies are not too friendly

Stop child abuse It is our position that immediate action should be taken if a child is suspected of being abused or neglected. Today ends National Child Abuse Prevention Month, though the community should remain under constant vigil. In just a year, 40 Hoosier children died from abuse and neglect, according to a recent report by the state Dept. of Child Services. The report indicated that unemployment, low income, substance abuse and domestic violence are factors in many child-abuse deaths. The report also found a pattern of child deaths at the hands of parents’ intimate partners, which is a trend that has continued year to year. DCS says it is asking parents to think carefully about with whom they leave their children. “When you have a child, and particularly a small child, left in the care of someone with no emotional bond with the child, with low to no parenting skills, and managing multiple stressors, tragedy can happen in an instant,” said John Ryan, DCS chief of staff. The department is asking that everyone do their part to help protect kids. Pay attention and reach out if you need help or know someone who might. To report abuse, call the Indiana state hotline at 800-800-5556. Parents, if you need help, call 1-800-CHILDREN.

A matter of perspective Commentary by Terry Anker In conversation today with a local businessman who is preparing to celebrate his 47th wedding anniversary, our attention turned to his advice in maintaining long-term relationships. As he smiled, he said it was by making the right choice at the beginning. In his firmly Hoosier selfdeprecating way, he went on to credit much of the success of their longevity to his bride. “What a good guy,” I thought. But as my sympathetic interrogatory continued, his detailed answers pointed to something else. Certainly, he had entered a relationship with someone who is committed to relationships. Such a move is always a good thing. But more, he carried into the relationship a strong understanding of the importance of perspective in human interaction. Even as we peer down from our vantage point, it is easy to forget that there are countless other outlooks from which to gaze. Imagine the scores of interpersonal interactions that take place every day – at the office, at the coffee

counter, with our families. During the course of the many petty irritations and follies that seem to fill our daily routines, it is striking to consider that there are innumerable other lives filled each with its own peccadilloes and interests. How do people perceive us? Do they even notice that we exist? Is our imagined slight an entirely unintended consequence? Or, are the nefarious perpetrating their own agendas against us? Can we find comfort in the knowledge that no one can fully understand our point-of-view or invite us into theirs? Or, is this solitary personal isolation frightening? Maybe it’s a matter of perspective. Regardless, learning to get out of our own heads and imagine the view from across the table can only make us better for it.

- Mark Twain

There has been a slew of reports in national media – print, electronic and social – in recent days about the politicization of budget cuts coming out of Washington. One in particular caught our attention, and that dealt with flight delays (departures and arrivals, naturally) as a result of the furloughing of air traffic controllers. It should be noted that while travelers were cooling their heels - and presumably trying to stifle their rising tempers on long layovers in overcrowded departure lounges - at many major airports, the U.S. Dept. of Transportation announced a $474-million grant program that promises to “make communities more livable and sustainable.” That’s. Just. Dandy. We can cut highly trained and supervised staff, whose responsibility it is to keep the friendly skies all the more friendly, and foist upon the remaining personnel and supervisors an increased burden of undertaking even a larger part of one of the most stressful jobs known to man. But, hey, when there’s a chance to dump hundreds of millions of dollars into “sustainability,” well, that seems to be a no-brainer - for the brainless in Washington. It seriously continues to amaze us that not too many have vigorously spoken out about the furloughs. Think of it this way: Would you want yourself or your loved one strapped into a jetliner traveling at 400-plus miles per hour under the “watchful” eyes of an overstressed, exhausted ATC employee? We know the answer, but we had to ask. To us, it’s really frightening. Until the staffing levels have been brought back to realistic levels – sorry, airlines – we’re not going to travel by air; it’s all road trips until then. By the way, did anyone on Capitol Hill or in the White House administration even suggest cutting President Barack Obama’s golf fees from the budget? Didn’t think so.

Please return my money

Editor, I was at the Carmel/Westfield Marsh store on Sunday, and I requested $50 back on my debit card. It had been a long Reader’s view day, and I forgot to take the money. I called Marsh about 10 minutes later and spoke to a very accommodating manager. He watched the video and a person who came in after me took the money, knowing that it belonged to someone else who would come looking for it. I have called the police and, with the help of

the picture, this person will be caught. To prevent this person from being embarrassed and getting into trouble, I am hoping that the money will be left at the customer service counter in an envelope with my name on it. No questions asked, and I will truly appreciate the honesty. It is extremely upsetting, but, as I have a very forgiving nature, I will chalk this up to someone who was having a bad day and decided to make it better at the expense of someone else. I am hoping that this person did not think this through. S. Strange, 46033

Schools matter, not mass transit Editor, Recently, I received yet another request from the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors for my support of mass Reader’s view transit. MIBOR has never reached out to ask my opinion of mass transit, just instructed me to follow the company line.  I will not support mass transit, or support raising taxes for mass transit. I have the privilege of living in Hamilton County, where the schools have had a very positive effect on our property values. Proof enough for me to believe in the power of good schools. Good schools help increase property values and decrease crime rates. For that reason, I’m

struggling to understand why MIBOR is so bent on supporting mass transit. It will absolutely raise property taxes, won’t improve schools, increase property values or reduce crime, all the things a Realtor should be concerned about. Improving the IPS Schools would have a direct impact on the value of homes and the lives of the families we serve. Indianapolis Schools rank 287 out of 313 school districts in Indiana. Why doesn’t MIBOR take up the cause of better schools?  According to MIBOR statistics, 25 percent of buyers ranked the quality of a school district as most important while only 6 percent ranked the convenience of public transportation as important.

I hate it, but I have to

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Recently I’ve noticed a strange occurrence. My stomach will begin to hurt after I’ve been sitting for any length of time. At first, I humor thought it was too-tight jeans, but then I realized the pain would arrive with any number of pants or skirts that fastened at the waist. Conclusion: my clothes are shrinking! I suppose there is another explanation for this disturbing phenomenon: I might possibly, perhaps, be gaining an ever-so-slight bit of weight; which would make sense because I basically stopped all forms of exercising after I survived the mini-marathon last May. True, I do attend weekly geriatric yoga and occasionally walk the dog around our basketball goal, but for my body type, the lack of aerobic activity is finally starting to show. And what really ticks me off is that the pounds aren’t going where I need them most. My face and chest could actually stand to be a little plumper, while my thighs and behind are already plenty large. But nooooo, become a couch potato and the new fat immediately heads for his friends. The only solution (besides giving up my nightly cherry pop tart and glass of milk, and that ain’t gonna happen) is to start an exercise program, but I’m seriously lacking the motivation. I already ran the marathon and took on P90X. And my

clothes do still fit, albeit a little more snuggly. Plus, I have to consider two significant physical defects: my crappy knees and reduced bladder control. No jumping jacks for this girl! Swimming is a great option, but laps in a pool are so high maintenance. Drying and de-frizzing my ginger hair alone can take a full 30 minutes! Who’s got the time for that? Speaking of time, a serious “lack thereof” is another one of my excuses. For me, working out has to occur in the morning, because once evening hits, my life revolves around kids and husband and wine. But I hate waking up early, especially to [gulp] exercise. Regardless, I must think of something. I’ve always been in good shape and like knowing that when the Zombie Apocalypse comes, I’ll be able to run for the hills (or cornfields). Right now, I’d barely reach the nearest round about before collapsing in a pile of stretch marks and hyperventilation. I suppose I could start with some hard-core walking; maybe throw in some light dumbbells to tighten the ol’ triceps. It’s not glamorous, but if it’ll help me outrun a dead person and keep clothing from cutting off my circulation, I’m in. Power walking, here I come! Peace out.

Backyard checks required

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

I have never aerated my lawn. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever written the word “aerated” before. If I did, I am sure I misspelled it. humor I think I accidentally went from liquefy to aerate while making a strawberry shake in our blender. That’s the extent of my experience. Despite many years as a homeowner, I first learned about lawn aeration the other day when my wife and I arrived home from a Sunday brunch and saw our neighbor, John, wrestling with what appeared to be a 200-horsepower lawn machine. The really strange part was that John was not aerating his own lawn, but rather Herb’s lawn– an apparent act of great selflessness, unless you saw he had simply lost control of the behemoth and was desperately trying to steer the machine back to his own front yard. Then Marty, watching John from his living room window, came outside to request that he be given a chance to aerate. Herb also wanted in. This scam was so ingenious that it made Tom Sawyer look like an amateur. John tried to explain to me why it’s important to aerate a lawn, but most of the explanation required that I actually listen. He did say something about golf greens that got my attention. And I kept hearing the word “plugs,” which made me mildly interested because I once had a hair

transplant. I watched Herb try to aerate. Herb, who can only claim 5-foot-8-inches in his wife’s high heels, was being whipped into unspeakable contortions and had to push the emergency button after he aerated Marty’s newly paved driveway. I’m opposed to deadly asphalt weapons, but John told me that the Second Amendment covers lethal lawn equipment, as well. After observing my neighbors gleefully involved in raising their testosterone levels, I agreed to try aeration myself. I declined doing my own lawn, having arranged several years ago for nine moles to do the job for me. I took hold of the handles, pressed the bar and was quickly propelled into action. I had never realized how exciting it would be to poke holes in a neighbor’s lawn. It was fun, but four seconds was long enough. John could see I was uncomfortable with an aerator in the neighborhood, but he put my mind at ease. “Aerators don’t poke holes in lawns. People poke holes in lawns,” he told me. That made in feel a little better. But I still think there should be backyard checks on people who want to own aerators.

No actual crickets are involved Commentary by Mike Redmond

Baseball season is here and so our thoughts turn to cricket, a game that is just like baseball except for the myriad ways in humor which it is not. Cricket jumps up, so to speak, because there is a movement underway (as opposed to underfoot) to make Indianapolis, a city familiar to most of us, the Cricket Capital Of The World. This would only add to the luster of a city already known as the Euchre and Pork Tenderloin Sandwich Capital. Of course, the 14 people in Indianapolis who understand and like cricket are thrilled. The rest of us are mystified, which seems the only reasonable reaction. To Americans raised on a sports diet of baseball, basketball, football and hockey, cricket is the sort of thing that causes headaches if you try to figure it out for yourself. Here are some things you need to know about cricket: 1. It is not baseball. We’ve covered this already. 2. The teams consist of 11 players on each side. Positions include the bowler, the catcher, wicket keeper, long stop, slips, right bower, left out, guy over here, guy over there, upper and lower squamish, and designated jiminy (American League only). 3. It is the only game named after a bug. It

chose this unusual name because all the good ones (horse racing, cards, Steve) were already taken. 4. To the untrained eye, a match looks as if one person throws the ball in a most peculiar galloping overhand motion, and a man wielding a fraternity paddle tries to hit it back at him, after which people clap politely. It also looks this way to the trained eye. 5. No actual crickets are involved. OK, time out, or whatever they say in cricket. Let me clear up a couple of things. I know there are more than 14 people in Central Indiana who like cricket. In fact, it’s a tribute to our growing international community that this Cricket Capital Of The World idea even took root. Great for us that we have such interesting people who have come to live among us, and I mean it. So here’s to you, Central Indiana cricket hopefuls. I hope your fast bowlers come through and your batsmen guide the good length balls to wherever they’re supposed to go and wickets are taken. Play ball, have at it, chirp, or whatever it is you crickets say. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ or P.O. Box 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244.

Vegetables can be the stars Commentary by Claudia Pierson When we think of grilling, we immediget cooking ately think of meats and fish it seems. Yet, there is a whole world of wonderful grill options for the other parts of the meal. Hope you will enjoy these unique recipes.

Grilled vegetable salad

serves 4-6 You may skewer the veggies or place directly on grill. Ingredients: 1 cup gorgonzola cheese, 1 yellow and 1 red pepper - sides cut and halved, 6 quartered Yukon gold potatoes, 1 sweet potato in large cubes, 1 leek quartered lengthwise, 1 bunch asparagus trimmed, 1 yellow squash cubed Marinade/dressing: 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup dry white wine, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon fresh diced tarragon, 1 tablespoon diced sage, 1 tablespoons diced rosemary, Salt and pepper Directions: Marinate vegetables for about 15 minutes in half of the mixture. Shake off excess dressing and grill until slightly charred – about 15 minutes. Place in large bowl and toss with remaining dressing and gorgonzola cheese. Serve immediately. Cooking tip: Close the lid on your grill when you are finished - it will make the clean up easier. Also, place any peppers you have on the grill and allow them to stay there as the grill cools for 1 ½ to 2 hours. They will be perfectly roasted and ready for the next meal.

Grilled Peaches with Honey Chevre

serves 8 Ingredients: 4 fresh peaches halved and pitted, 6 ounces chevre, 2 tablespoons milk, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla (you may also use brandy), 1 cup toasted almonds Directions: Combine chevre, milk and honey in a bowl - do not over stir. Grill peaches cut side down about 6 to 8 minutes or until they start to get grill marks and caramelize. Remove from grill, fill each peach half with about I tablespoons of the cheese mixture and top with almonds. Serve warm

Food + art = winning combination By Mark Johnson •

Food and art. An unusual duo? Perhaps, few people would consider those two items a noteworthy combination. Yet, for the Hamilton County Arts Association, food and culture art are adding up to a winning combination. On Friday, the HCAA will open its annual “Bon Appétit” Art Show and Noblesville Restaurant Art Demonstration. As artist Patty Mac Innis explained, this year’s show is a major step forward. “This is the first year that the restaurants will be involved,” she said. “All the restaurant owners have been great. They’ve put up miniaturized posters advertising the show, and they have really helped to promote it.” This year’s “Bon Appétit” opening is part of Noblesville Main Street’s lead off First Friday for the 2013 season. “Bon Appétit” showcases art that have food or food related themes. This year, 18 artists will participate in the show. Each artist will have painting demonstrations in or near 12 of Noblesville’s restaurants. An open house will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, with a free art shuttle bus providing transportation to two places on the square and the Judge Stone House parking lot. The shuttle will then return to the HCAA Birdie Gallery, 195 S. Fifth St. Artists will paint from 5 to 7:45 p.m. Patrons will be able to bid on the paintings in a silent auction at the Birdie Gallery. Bids will be

closed at 8:45 p.m. “There are three goals of the show,” Mac Innis said. “We want to promote the restaurants, educate people on the arts, and have a fundraiser for the HCAA.” Indeed, in a show of deep commitment to the arts and the artistic community, each artist will donate 50 percent of the sale of the painting back to the HCAA. “We are looking forward to a large, excellent show,” Mac Innis said.

All the snow has melted and the sun is trying to show it’s lovely rays. But, all you can think is; “Why didn’t I start working out in January?” Don’t let the fear of the coming warm fitness seasons have you retreating into a moo moo just yet. Don’t give up before you even start, there is still time! I know how to help you see results soon. I am referring to interval training. Interval training is an excellent way to burn more calories, build endurance quickly and add interest to your workouts. Interval training involves alternating high-intensity exercise with recovery periods. There are a variety of ways to set up interval workouts. One option is timed periods of work followed by timed periods of rest. An example would be one minute of high-intensity work (such as a sprint), followed by two minutes of low-intensity exercise (walking) and alternating that several times for 15 to 30 minutes. Another option is instead of using time for measurement, use objects. You might power walk or run to the stop sign and recover walk or jog to the mailbox. Interval training can be done with just about any exercise, not just running. If you are exercising on an Elliptical machine, raise the level of intensity for a short amount of time and then lower the intensity until you “recover” and repeat this process. Your recovery time should only be a few minutes. You should be able to breathe easily, however; if it takes you 10 minutes to speak, dial back the intensity. You are in charge of the intervals and how

DISPATCHES Free cancer screenings – Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. It is also the most preventable and, if caught early, the most treatable. Yet 10,000 Americans die of skin cancer every year. To combat this trend, St.Vincent Cancer Care is offering free skin cancer screenings to men and women of all ages. Screenings will be available on May 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at 8414 Naab Rd., Suite 100, Indianapolis, and on May 22 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Trinity Free Clinic, 1045 W. 146th St., Suite B, Carmel. To register, call 338-CARE (2273). Screenings take about 30 minutes. Results of the screening are available immediately, and if necessary, patients will be referred for follow-up care.

hard you push. This method of training is more effective at inducing fat loss than simply training at a moderate intensity level for the same duration. This is due to the metabolism boosting effects of high-intensity intervals. The idea is to work harder than usual in your “work” sets and to fully recover during the low intensity intervals. Interval training is a great way to increase results and burn more calories. So, don’t throw in the beach towel just yet. Give interval training a try and not only be ready for summer but look forward to it!

Annual Lemonade Stand and Carnival – The Emily Yott Foundation was created in 2007 to support families of children with cancer.

People are nicer in person

Commentary by David Cain

I’m a terrible flyer and it seems to get worse every year, every flight. I clinch the seat in front of me and brace myself with the Advice seatbelt as tight as I can pull it. When the plane touches the ground, I feel a sweet release and my entire body uncoils. Every flight is the same. As soon as the wheels leave the ground, any calmness turns to clamminess. I have a strategy for flying, really for all emotions, that often works. The underlying concept is you are emotional when you aren’t being rational, so you have to be more rational. Emotions don’t involve thinking; they are feelings. When you think, you can generally dismantle feelings. When I get mad, I ask myself tough questions that make me think. When I’m sad, I pose hard questions to find the source. As I move from only feeling to thinking, I find greater calmness in my rational thoughts. That’s my strategy for flying: get thinking and curb the emotions. I disrupt a three-seat radius

dispatches Why you should go to that dreaded interview – There are three reasons why people should go on an interview, even if they don’t want to, according to an article on “The Daily Muse.” 1) You may find the company is a great fit after all. 2) Practice interviews make perfect interviews 3) To find out what hiring managers seek in a potential employee. –

until I find thoughtful conversation. I met a fellow on a recent flight. He runs a website for a news group. We started talking about how some people comment on news articles with crushing force, being mean and taking shots. It’s not everyone of course, but there are a lot of people that do. Is it the anonymity that drives it or is there really a bunch of mean people out there that mask it when you meet them in person? We settled on this; people are nicer to one another in person. There’s increased accountability and, after all, it’s harder to dislike people when you are face to face with them. It’s an easy thing to forget in business too, things go better when you meet with people face to face. I guess it’s all full circle as that’s what put me on the plane to begin with.

Southern-style restaurant opens

Another Broken Egg Café, a new southernstyle breakfast and lunch restaurant, is now open at 96th and Meridian now open streets along Carmel’s southern border. Last week, the restaurant kicked off with two days of family and friends meals for members of the community. “I’m amazed at how our staff has been doing,” said Susan Sapp, one of Another Broken Egg Café’s four owners and a Fishers resident. “Feedback has been really great so far. We have been getting a lot of comments not only on the food but on the décor as well,” said Peggy Cseresznyes, another of the restaurant’s four owners. Another Broken Egg Café is a full service, sitdown breakfast and lunch location featuring a full bar, something that Cseresznyes pointed out as being unique among restaurants of this type.

Question: “What are your thoughts about use of the (nonexistent) word ‘preventional’ on page 1 of Current in Carmel last GRAMMAR GUY week? It’s not in Webster’s app, at least not for iPhone.” (Becky Rainsberger, Carmel) Answer: Well Becky, to be honest I hadn’t had any thoughts about “preventional” prior to your question. Obviously, the word we’d expect there is “preventative,” or even “preventive.” I did find an entry for “preventional” in a 1913 edition of a dictionary … but since I found no others, we’ll just call it non-standard at best. Since I’m prone to tangents, your question got me interested in the reasoning behind why certain words receive certain suffixes as they transform from verbs to nouns or nouns to adjectives/adverbs. After all, while “prevention” gains an “-ative” or “-ive,” “convention” becomes “conventional,” while “attention” follows the former pattern and becomes “attentive.” It’s really more a question of etymology than grammar, but it’s my column, so you’re following me down the rabbit hole. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a consistent rule for selecting a suffix. Instead, I dug into the meanings of each suffix to attempt to extract a reasoning behind the apparent disparity above. When used with an adjective/adverb, as is the case above, the suffix “-al” signifies relation. For example, a tuba is a “music-al” instrument. The


suffix “-ative” or “-ive” signifies that an object has the nature or quality of whatever the root word is. For example, glue is an “adhes-ive” – by its very nature it exhibits the quality of adhesion (i.e., it binds surfaces together and resists separation). While these two suffixes seem similar at first, we can observe why they are different. A tuba isn’t “musica-tive” for two reasons: First, “musicative” isn’t a word. Second, a tuba is not, by its nature, composed of music. It is composed of brass. You could say that an opera is “musicative” (if it were a word, that is) because an opera is, by its nature, music. An opera cannot be not musical; its nature would be fundamentally different. The same logic applies to “preventative.” Brushing your teeth is a preventative step to avoid cavities; the action is, by its nature, a hindrance or impediment to tooth decay (i.e., “prevention”). The list of English suffixes is enormous, and I don’t have the time or space to examine them all (although I did find out that “numisma” means “coin,” as in “numismatics:” the study or collection of currency). I encourage you to do a little studying on your own time, though (right after you clean out the garage and finally get around to sorting your record collection).

A gaze into the decorator’s future

Greetings from High Point, North Carolina, home of the largest home furnishings market in the world where an optimistic economic psyche is apparent. design For six marathon days, this sleepy town extends small-town hospitality to more than 80,000 home furnishing retailers and designers as they preview the trends for the next six months of the home interior industry. This semi annual event is the ultimate gaze into the crystal ball of home furnishing trends. A kaleidoscope of color has exploded and offers a much needed reprieve from the sullen grays of the past few years. Cleaner and more vibrant, these hues explode in room settings. Orange and lavender are the stars and are being paired with sapphire, teal and sunshine yellow. These unorthodox combinations might not be as appealing if we weren’t starving for an optimistic change. Leather, dyed in unexpected colors, continues to punctuate room vignettes. Large scale geometrics dominate the pattern

Details are now works of art with nail heads that create a pattern and broad tapes that provide the essential interest detail. Linen is still a contender as a fabric choice, but the color choices far exceed the generic natural of last year. Quality, in spite of pricing, outshines the cheaper stepsister pieces. When a pattern is lined up with precision, you know that the craftsmen is versed in how to do it right. While transitional style with sleek silhouettes reigns, it is more sophisticated with the inclusion of inlaid marquetry and rich wood finishes. The new richness allows a smooth transition into a traditional décor.

Kitchen remodel creates an open four-seasons space

Commentary by Larry Greene

ORIGINAL KITCHEN: Originally built in 1982, this home is located on the first lot sold on Geist Reservoir. The current owners are the original homeowners, and the husband is a retired local custom homebuilder. blueprint for WHY REMODEL? The original kitchen was improvement U-shaped and fit into a narrow space with a breakfast area. French doors led to a three-season porch overlooking the water. The homeowners felt it was time to remodel the space and to convert the porch into a four-season sunroom. “Floor plans have changed,” said the homeowner. “It used to be that there were more walls. Everything is more open now. Also, the original kitchen was nearing the end of its life, and we were tired of the oak cabinets. We also felt that we would get more use out of a sunroom than a porch.” NEW SUNROOM SPACE WITH BUMP OUT: The goal of the design was to create an open floor plan for the kitchen area. The plans called for removing the porch and building a sunroom addition fully open to the remodeled kitchen. Visual access to the water was a priority as well. The sunroom was cantilevered off the original foundation walls, as its footprint was larger than the original porch. All new framing was required, and large windows were installed. A wood beam spanned the new opening from the kitchen to the sunroom.


After FINAL RESULT: As a former custom homebuilder, the homeowner had an eye for the details. “We wanted cherry cabinets and a more traditional style. We really like the granite we chose, as it blends with the cabinets yet it is light. With all of the windows being on one side of the room, dark countertops would have been too dark. The tile design over the range works well too. Our favorite part of the remodel is the sunroom. We use it all the time, and we are enjoying our view more.”

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