OUR VIEWS

It is our position a societal change in attitude is necessary to manage distractions while driving to ensure safety on the road. The National Transportation Safety Board recently called for a first-ever complete nationwide ban on driver use of cell phones and portable electronic devices. Distracted driving is the new DUI. Somehow, common sense eludes many drivers as they are behind the wheel of a 3,000-pound piece of metal when their cell phone rings or they hear a ding indicating a new text message. The current antitexting/e-mail-while-driving law in Indiana is difficult to enforce. If the onus is placed on the government to save us from ourselves and others who are driving while distracted, what does that say about our society? Should drivers be mandated to use a mobile application that automatically turns off cell phone capabilities while driving, or are they capable of using the “off“ button? Music, reading, grooming, eating and noise of passengers always have been frequent distractions for drivers – and now, PEDs. It is unrealistic to rely soley on the government to legislate drivers from being distracted. The hope is for a change in drivers’ attitudes to safely manage the distractions.

Penn State

It is our position the scandal at Penn State last year was, if not the darkest, one of the darkest moments in sports. We also believe Penn State made the correct decision in not allowing Joe Paterno to finish the season as head coach of its football team. The scandal, which involved allegations of former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abusing young children who were involved in his charity, Second Mile was known to Paterno for at least part of the reported 15 years these actions occurred. Original reports claimed Paterno would finish the season and retire. We believe Penn State’s board of trustees made the correct decision in firing him on the spot. Paterno was put into a position that carried great prominence not only for the football team, but the university and surrounding area as well. He proved he was not up to the responsibility that came with being a community leader. No matter how great your football knowledge, not reporting Sandusky’s alleged actions proved Paterno was not a role model. We hope everyone has learned from Paterno’s transgression and takes the appropriate actions if found in the same situation.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Manilow one honoree for June 16 gala Barry Manilow, the award-winning songwriter and vocalist, is to be among the honorees at the June 16 gala at The Palladium at The Center for the Performing Arts, we have learned. Manilow and others to be named next month will be inductees to the Great American Songbook Hall of Fame at the Center. The Center has soft-launched table sales for the formal event on a one-onone basis, and they are said to be priced at $7,500 for corporate tables and $5,000 for others. Each table is to seat 10 persons. John Hughey, director of external relations for the Center, said Michael Feinstein, the Center’s artistic director, will launch the public phase of table sales on Feb. 15, when he will announce all the Hall of Fame inductees along with specific gala details. The Hall of Fame will induct new artists each year, recognizing their contributions to the Songbook. This is the second gala for The Palladium; the initial gala Jan. 25, 2011, was a sellout, and its tickets were the most sought-after Hamilton County has ever seen. Krieg DeVault is sponsoring the June event. To be clear, the June gala is not a Manilow concert; he will attend and perform, but that represents only a portion of the evening. Manilow, who you may not know is also a jingle writer of strong

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg repute, is a highly-decorated performer. Among his many honors: 1978-1980 American Music Awards Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, 2006 Emmy for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program for Barry Manilow: Music and Passion, 1977 Emmy for Outstanding Special - Comedy-Variety or Music for The Barry Manilow Special, 1979 Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for Copacabana and a 2002 induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. As for his jingles, beneficiaries of his handiwork include McDonald’s, KFC, Band-Aid, State Farm, Pepsi, Stridex and Dr. Pepper. We can’t wait to learn of the rest of the lineup for June.

A lucky streak indeed COMMENTARY By Jordan Fischer The past year proved an improbable achievement for me in that I, unlike so many of my cohorts and ambitions, could reasonably claim to have made my living as a writer. What an unlikely occupation for a 24-year-old, Midwestern boy hailing from a small town known mostly for the shrubbery inexplicably misplaced onto the courthouse roof. Yet, without much argument, I get to be a writer, when by all rights I should be clinging to that title by some far more tenuous strand – much in the way I fancy myself an “intellectual” by virtue of all the documentaries on my Netflix queue. Or how I tell people I was a “varsity athlete,” conveniently leaving out that our swim team was just large enough to float a four-man relay squad. It’s a spectacular way to pay for my caffeine addiction, writing. And because journalists’ brand of penmanship exists in some murky realm between the artistic and the professional, I get all the perks of being a quirky “creative” type while still having those oh-so-legitimizing trappings of the working-stiff: business cards, my very own desk and, you know, an income. That last part certainly satisfies an itch for stability that a stack of rejection letters and self-righteous indignation just can’t quite scratch (although, by God, I’ll get one of those haikus published

someday). Whether I deserve any of the stroke of good luck I seem to have slipped into is a fair question, especially considering the tacit (and sometimes less-than-tacit) agreement between the public and the penman that provides journalists the opportunity to ply our trade. I imagine this must be how Justin Bieber feels as he lays awake at night, pondering what level of success and stardom his YouTube fans really hoped to propel him to, and what price he must pay in disconnection from them to reach those peaks (It’s worth noting that in my head, Justin Bieber is a resolute existentialist). I’m not much one for New Year’s resolutions, mostly because they require effort to think up and that sounds difficult. On the flip side, with a new year ahead of me, I find gratitude in no short supply. The greater portion of that must go to you, dear reader, for allowing me, and Current as a whole, to be a part of your community. And of course, at least some gratitude must go to my bosses who, by the way, actually paid me to write this column. Now, how improbable is that?

Stop e-nnoying us COMMENTARY By Terry Anker Most of us know something nefarious can lurk in the unsolicited e-mail from a purported lost relative in central Africa who needs cash wired so “they can get transportation home.” These messages and the dozens of others glutting our e-mail inboxes are outright scams. Unlike the trusty mailbox at the end of the lane, the one on our desk (inside of our locked and secure personal domiciles) is far more dangerous. Certainly, folks have used the post office to cheat and steal since the early days of post. But the Internet has accelerated crime right along with its many blessings. How do we tell the difference between a legitimate offer and one cleverly concealing a computer virus ready to steal our personal information and hijack our friends list? But not all of this SPAM (defined not the tasty, guilty-pleasure, meat product but as junk mail) is treachery. Some of the messages are invitations to attend events for causes to which we have no interest, solicitations to sample pharmaceuticals and other cures for problems with which we are not afflicted, updates on all manner of topics which require little appraisal, or the retelling of another crude joke from a distant acquaintance that is sure the urban legend must be passed to “10 friends or something

www.youarecurrent.com

bad will happen.” This mix is largely harmless enough. One doesn’t need to do more than press the delete key. Yet, what is the difference between connecting with others and e-noying them? How much information – even transferred in the most passive way – is simply too much information? And even more importantly, how do we help folks understand they are sharing too little too often? Don’t we all want to be connected and informed – yet how much can we really consume? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

Mammogram missing masseuse and mimosa COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson I must say I’m rather disappointed. I waited to write this column until after my appointment, confident I’d be bursting with hilarious anecdotes and entertaining mishaps. But alas, here I sit with nary a tale and a sense of anticlimactic restlessness. The Mighty Mammogram turned out to be not so mighty after all! Because I turn 40 painfully soon, my doctor encouraged me to schedule a baseline mammogram. Luckily, I have no family history of breast cancer or any other risk factors, so I’ve been able to delay the exam until now. And I have wanted to delay it. The thought of some technician with carny hands shoving my girls between ice-cold metal plates recalled long-suppressed nightmares of breastfeeding twins, when I was nothing more than a strung-out milcher working overtime. Nevertheless, I made the stupid appointment and figured at the very least, the experience would make for a good story. But nooooooo. For starters, the breast center was more like a spa than a doctor’s office, with soft ambient lighting, faux-mahogany lockers and friendly, welcoming women. If I’d had a mimosa and a masseuse named Paulo, I would have gladly relaxed all day! I was actually disappointed my wait was so short, as I’d discovered a missed edition of People Magazine and was thoroughly enjoying a quiet moment. My nurse did not in fact have

carny hands, and explained every step of the procedure to dissuade my lingering anxiety. The worst part was the slight embarrassment I suffered at having so little to work with, if you catch my drift. Yes, I was squeezed a bit, and yes, for a second I vowed to create the first ever scrotal-gram machine to see how men liked having their giblets flattened like a crepe, but honestly, it was no big deal. I’d definitely take a mammogram over a pap smear any day! So since nothing traumatic happened, allow me to plug an opportunity to contribute to breast cancer research: In conjunction with the Super Bowl and Indy’s Super Cure Initiative, the Komen Tissue Bank in Indianapolis is hosting a breast tissue collection event Jan. 28-29. Researchers recently learned their center is the only one in the world to have both healthy and cancerous tissue samples from two separate women, a major development in breast cancer research. Their goal is 700 samples, with half coming from women of diverse ages, ethnicities and geographic backgrounds. To register, visit http://komentissuebank.iu.edu. Peace out.

Council tackles senior living Resurrect or reinvent? proposal at first meeting By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent. com The third public hearing for a proposed senior living community at the southwest corner of 146th Street and Allisonville Road brought out a crowd last Tuesday, with remonstrators still holding firm in their opposition to the development. The first two public hearings were held at the November and December meetings of the Town of Fishers Plan Commission last year. Steve Hardin, of Baker & Daniels, brought the request before the council on behalf of Lenity Group, which is proposing to develop “The Residences at the Crossing” – a $12 million, 124-suite senior living facility on 5.5 acres of the 15-acre property. According to Hardin, the development would bring an estimated annual tax revenue of $240,000 to the town, in addition to $180,000 annually in local utility service contracts. “Because of the traffic, it pretty much screams commercial development,” said Hardin. A traffic study of the area reported 45,000 cars per day travel along that stretch of 146th Street, and 16,000 cars per day along Allisonville Road. “Residents have been vocal over the years about not wanting to see commercial development there,” Hardin said, “but at the same time, because of the traffic and noise, it is not appealing for traditional single-family residential.” Opponents, however, say traffic concerns are exactly why they don’t want to see this project materialize. “My major concern is how this is going to affect the already horrible traffic congestion of that intersection,” said nearby resident Kurt Rupenthal. “I think the traffic impact of this could be greater than the $240,000 in generated tax revenue.”

Other residents voiced concerns about a lift station that would be necessary on the property, the appropriateness of the project at an intersection deemed to be one of the major “entrance corridors” to Fishers, and the impact such a development would have on the town’s emergency services. To the latter, Fire Chief Steve Orusa said his department expects at least one call per year per bed for a senior living facility like the one proposed. “When you look at the pictures, it’s a beautiful project. But we know that a three-story apartment building looks very different than a two- or three-story house,” said Diana Lawrence, a resident of the area and member of the plan commission (Lawrence recused herself from voting on the proposal, which came to the town council with no recommendation from the commission). “That’s what we’ll have to see outside our windows. It’s intimidating. That’s not what our neighborhoods are about.” The council had a number of questions for Hardin as well, including concerns as to how vehicles would access the facility. The current plan calls for a curb cut to allow a right-turn lane into the facility on 146th Street. That road, however, is owned by Hamilton County, which has refused allowing such curb cuts on it in the past. As well, a bond ordinance held by the county on 146th Street would prevent Fishers from gaining control of it through annexation of the property. The council approved second reading of the ordinance, though it was sent back to Hardin and town staff with a substantial list of questions. In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the next meeting of the town council will be next Tuesday beginning at 7 p.m. in the town hall assembly room, 1 Municipal Dr.

COMMENTARY By Susan Bryant If you’re a mom who wants to re-enter the workforce after being at home raising children for a while, the hardest question you may have to answer for yourself is, “What do I want to do?” For some moms, the answer is clear. If you enjoyed the work you did prior to being at home, resurrecting that career makes sense. With experience and former contacts in the field, returning to something familiar makes for a smoother transition. But for other moms, what they did before is no longer appealing. Maybe it wasn’t that gratifying in the first place. Or, maybe in a different phase of life now, priorities have changed. A new interest may be blooming (or one that was always present but never pursued) and that possibility is intriguing. So instead of resurrecting an old self, a “reinvention” is called for. This is trickier. And requires bravery. Bravery because it means entertaining the possibility of a new, unfamiliar version of you – one that spouses, family and friends have come to know. It means being able to say, “I’m going to think about what I want,” which is uncomfortable territory for many women who are accustomed to making others’ needs top priority. It’s easier not to do really. Playing it safe has

its advantages. We might fail. And what about that degree we got, that resume we’ve been building, all that previous effort going down a certain professional path? What will people think? Well, in reality, they might think you’ve lost it. It’s possible you could be committing a major blunder! But without permission to try, we fail ourselves. It’s a risk to say, “I’m going to take part of myself and define it in a new way.” Others may even discourage you because it shines a spotlight on opportunities they let go. But at the end of the day, our perception of ourselves matters more than anyone else’s opinion. We answer to ourselves for the chances we didn’t take. We tell our children to believe in themselves. To try new things, stretch themselves and find out what they’re really capable of. We do that because we know that will ultimately make them happy – to find a path that gratifies them even if getting there was a little scary. Let them see you really believe those words. Get out of your own way. And when you do get discouraged, give yourself the same kindness and support you would extend to them. “You can do it” is a phrase meant for adults too.

Bob Knight signing in Carmel By Kevin Kane kevin@youarecurrent.com Dominique Ball said Bob Knight is the biggest name in the history of Indiana sports, and that’s why he’s bringing Knight him to Carmel. Knight – a Hall of Fame basketball coach who won three national championships leading the Indiana Hoosiers - will come to Authentic Sports Collectibles at Carmel City Center Saturday. ASC opened Nov. 1 at 715 Hanover Place, and Ball said he has been working on bringing Knight to the store for more than a month. “I wanted to go big and who’s bigger than Bob Knight?” he said. The signing is open to members of the public who purchase one of the 500 tickets available. Tickets can be purchased at the store from now until the day of the event, but Ball said waiting until the 14th may leave some without a ticket, as he expects media coverage – including an appearance by Knight on The Bob and Tom Show scheduled for this week – to put the tickets in high demand.

Ball said ASC’s contract with Knight prohibits him from publicly disclosing the price of each ticket but added that, in his experience, attending autograph sessions offers the best prices on signed memorabilia. “To come witness the guy sign it, that’s the cheapest way to buy it,” he said. “It’s cheaper than buying it retail.” Attendees are allowed to bring one item per purchased ticket, and Ball said there are very few limitations on what can be presented to Knight to sign. Traditionally, Knight has politely refused to sign two editions of Sports Illustrated covering his firing at IU as well as copies of A Season on the Brink. Aside from that, Ball said, nearly anything is fair game. “He’ll even sign a chair if you want to bring that,” he said. Ball said he has many other signings planned for 2012, including appearances by “Mean Joe” Greene, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Gale Sayers, Mike Alstott and more. Ball said those seeking more information or to purchase tickets can call him directly at 554-9906.

Home invasion prompts police warning By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com A home invasion last week in nearby Lawrence has Fishers police warning residents not to lower their guards just because the holidays are over. Calling this time of year “harvest season” for criminals, FPD Sgt. Randy McFarland wrote in a press release, “Even the most ignorant criminal knows that homes will be laden with extra nice things this time of year.” According to the Lawrence police report, on Dec. 29, 2011, at 7:30 p.m., a homeowner in the 12000 block of East 65th Street in Lawrence reported having two subjects gain entry by knocking on the front door – forcing their way into the home after the homeowner answered their knock. Both subjects were armed with automatic pistols. The subjects took approximately $200 in cash, an iPod and two cellphones. When police arrived, the subjects fled out the

back door. No injuries were reported. The subjects were described as two black males, approximately 20 years old, wearing black hoodies. No vehicle was seen. The Town of Fishers prohibits any type of door-to-door soliciting after 6 p.m. this time of year. Police encourage residents not to open the door to speak with anyone they do not personally know. Police also advise some criminals will prey on people’s instinct to help others by asking homeowners for assistance, for example, saying their vehicle has broken down and requesting to come inside to use the phone. In such a case, police advise homeowners to tell the individuals through the door another person in the home has already called the police to come assist them. To place a non-emergency call to the Fishers Police Department, dial 595-3300, or 595-3305 for the anonymous tip line. More information can be found online at www.fishers.in.us/police.

White also faces a criminal trial in Hamilton County on Jan. 30 on seven felony charges related to accusations he lied on documents about where he lived during the 2010 primary so he could remain on the Fishers Town Council. A Hamilton County grand jury indicted White in March 2011, but White maintains his innocence on the theft and voter fraud charges. If White loses his job because of a conviction, Gov. Mitch Daniels would appoint his replacement – Democrats contend Osili should replace him.

Fishers’ newest class of elected officials is sworn in at the first town council meeting of 2012 By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com The men and women elected to chart the course for the Town of Fishers during the next four years officially were sworn in last Tuesday, beginning with the town’s first judge, Dan Henke. Henke was sworn in by Hamilton County Superior Court Judge Steven Nation, who, incidentally, gave Henke his first job as a deputy prosecutor fresh out of law school. “I knew he was a man that one day was going to be a judge, or somebody high in the legal profession,” Nation said, “because he came to me, probably within the first sixth months of being employed there … and I had this statue of the Lady of Justice, which has a scale in one hand and a sword in the other. Dan came to me and said, ‘I’m sorry, I was sword fighting and I broke your sword.’” “So I knew that there were great things to come after that,” Nation said. Before swearing in Henke, Nation offered a few words to the families of the incoming elected officials, many of whom were in attendance for the ceremony. “For the family members, it’s not over with,” Nation said. “You’re going to have a lot of hard decisions that have to be made. You have to be there with them. You have to keep them under your counsel.” For the officials themselves, Nation also spared a few words. “I often look back, and I often think to myself … we as a country, what would we do tomorrow if nobody would serve as a juror?” he said. “Ronald Reagan said that democracy is only but one generation away from extinction. And we could be there. But we have such good officials. We have such good people who step forward – not for the position, not to hold the office for themselves, but just to serve. And that’s the marvelous distinction in all my years of service; how I feel so privileged to be here in front of all these people,” Nation said. As his first official act as Fishers Town Judge, Henke then swore in the new members of the Fishers Town Council: Mike Colby, Renee Cox, Stuart Easley, Scott Faultless, Pete Peterson and John Weingardt. Henke also swore in Fishers Clerk-Treasurer Linda Gaye Cordell. Council member David George was not in attendance for the ceremony. Before beginning the regular meeting of the council, Town Council President Faultless offered a few final words for the officials’ family members. “It is a sacrifice,” he said. “There’s a lot of time taken away from the family to serve on town council, as clerk-treasurer and as judge.”

Fishers resident mixes art with workshops, blogging By Jocelyn Vare editorial@youarecurrent.com Jill Metz has been a self-taught artist for the last seven years, and her specialty is mixed media. This type of visual art uses a combination of media (such as paint, ink and collage) to create a single piece of art. The Fishers resident began offering mixed meMetz dia workshops, writing a blog to share her artwork and encouraging others in self-expression and creativity. In partnership with the Fishers Parks and Recreation Dept., Metz is offering several public workshops in the art of mixed media and collage at the Fishers Train Station. Anyone interested in these workshops may contact Metz at www.truoriginal.com. Metz considers herself a “creative coach” since she guides individuals in the exploration of art and creativity. She also offers private home workshops that are like a fun girls’ night out. “I have met the most amazing women through my workshops and they inspire me more than I do them!” Metz said. Last year, Metz began blogging and her online journal has provided new connections in the art community. One of her dreams is to

expand her workshops and offer a mixed media art retreat in Fishers. Metz attributes her brave creative spirit to the teachings of her single mom, who encouraged her to be independent and take chances. As a self-taught artist, Metz has had the opportunity to take creative courses and workshops from amazing artists around the country. Her artistic style is carefree and youthful. Mixed media allows her the freedom to explore many techniques and a variety of media. Her work can be found and purchased throughout the area. She is a regular participant of Art in the Park, the popular art fair presented by the Fishers Arts Council each September. Recently, Metz received a new opportunity to have her gift items available for purchase at Twisted Sister, a local boutique located at 7002 Lake Plaza Dr., Avalon Crossing in Indianapolis. In addition, she has been invited to become a member of the Center for Creative Arts Gallery located at 47 S. Main St. in Zionsville. Metz is the owner of her own art business, TRU Original, located in Fishers. She has been married to the love of her life for 12 years and together they have two children and three dogs. She recently started working part time at her parish, St. John Vianney Catholic Church. “It is an awesome blessing to serve our parish this way!” Metz said. “St. John Vianney has been instrumental in supporting my family in

our journey of faith and we are so happy to be part of that community.” Contact Metz through her blog, www.truoriginal.blogspot.com, or website, www.truoriginal.com. Each month, Fishers Arts Council recognizes

a local artist or business. Local actors, dancers, musicians, painters, writers and artists are encouraged to apply for Artist of the Month. The online application form can be found at www. fishersartscouncil.org.

When the thought of black walls feels like a guarantee your room will move over to the dark side, consider the reverse … light walls and black trim and doors. Crown molding, doors, shoe molding, stair treads, railings, bookcases and cabinetry take on an air of importance when painted black. Here is where it gets complicated … black is not just black. Just like the “safer” creamy colors, there are undertones which can bring out unwanted undertones. The most common issue is the cold blue cast which comes from glossy, true black paint. To correct that, I look for warmer blacks. Fired Earth by Valspar is an excellent choice for a brown/black effect, while Black Fox by Sherwin Williams is a truer black. If spraying your molding or doors is not an option, use a dense foam roller. Brush marks will be more obvious with the gloss of your black paint.

E 116th St Hague Rd

PANACHE By Vicky Earley If you are a true interiordecorating aficionado, I am sure you have experienced this. It happens when you least expect it. You know the feeling … you walk into a room and let out an inaudible gasp. The room is incredible and you have to stop take it all in. I visited the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island, S.C., over the holidays and had just that experience. Strangely enough, it wasn’t the grand foyer that took my breath away. It wasn’t the dramatic staircase that stopped me in my tracks. It wasn’t the opulence this resort is known for that turned my head. These were all details that were beautiful but expected in a resort. Instead, it was the hall that leads to the shops and spa that caught me off guard. It was painted an unassuming pale blue and the thick molding around the windows, the crown molding and the doors were all painted a sophisticated black. Yes, black paired with an unassuming pale blue. The theory sounds awful but the execution was incredible. Black is the grounding color that flatters any hue which stands alongside it. Black is thought of as the sophisticated color, but for those who fear the dark, it’s often written off as too risky.

DISPATCHES » Go half and half – Commit to mixing treats, half and half, with something harmless or healthful. Examples? Mix regular soda with diet soda or, better, seltzer or club soda. Mix sweetened yogurt with plain yogurt. Mix any kind of fruit juice with plain water or seltzer, and so forth. After a few weeks of this – if you remain diligent – you will find that your tolerance for sweetness declines. Then cut down to three-quarters and one-quarter. Eventually, the things you used to love will taste cloyingly sweet. -www.dlife.com » More effective Prozac – A new study in mice reinforces recent findings that fluoxetine – or Prozac – by itself doesn’t give a strong benefit unless accompanied by cognitive “talk” therapy. In the study, researchers conditioned mice to be afraid of a noise by giving them a small shock when they heard it. After the fear conditioning, some of the mice were given what the researchers call “extinction therapy” — the researchers reduced the mice’s fear of the noise itself by making the noise but not giving the accompanying shock.

Mice that had been treated with fluoxetine and given the extinction therapy had different brain responses to the noise and were less likely to freeze when they heard it in the final stage of the experiment than mice given only one of the two treatments. -www.myhealthnewsdaily.com » Tighter abs, better back – Having strong core muscles (we’re talking abs here) can help protect your back from injury.

Exercise in 2012? Remember these tips ANTI-AGING By Bryan Mayol, MD Literally every system in our body is healthier with regular exercise. We should strive to get at least 30 to 60 minutes of vigorous exercise every day. Other than smoking or other substance abuse, leading a sedentary life is the unhealthiest thing you can do. To reduce healthcare costs, many employers are creating financial motivation for people to get active – hitting people in their wallets if they refuse to make exercise a priority. So, keep some things in mind as you begin to exercise routinely. To burn fat from around the midsection or hips, do NOT focus on exercises that “target” those particular areas … it doesn’t work that way. Working those muscles is good but they will still be covered up by the fat, so have realistic expectations. Fat is stored calories; get rid of it by doing ANY exercises that burn calories effectively. Perhaps the best exercise for the average person is not running, but instead the stair climber, especially taking two steps at a time. It combines an excellent cardiovascular workout while building leg muscle (by having to work against gravity) with very low impact and joint stress. Building muscle helps the body burn more fat 24 hours a

day and helps maintain strength, and therefore independence with aging. As adults, we are getting weaker every day unless we are actively working to build muscle. Running will burn calories, but it is hard on many joints and is more likely to break down muscle than build it. Focus on weight-bearing exercises with functional movements, promoting balance and helping prevent osteoporosis. Core strength is extremely important for all of us for many reasons. Emphasize the eccentric (muscle lengthening) phase of any type of weight lifting by taking about four to five times as long to lower the weight as to lift it. This gives even better results with using less weight, reducing injuries and actually stimulating tendon healing. Keep in mind stretching right before exercise has consistently shown NOT to prevent injuries. A gradual warm up is much more important, then stretch either during or after your workout, which is much more effective.

Nip, lift and tuck

ANTI-AGING By Dr. Barry Eppley Q: My breasts are slightly droopy and I want them to be perkier. I thought I needed a lift but one doctor I consulted with said I needed more volume in my breast instead of a lift. He said this could be done with an implant or fat injections. The length between my nipple to sternal notch is 22.5 centimeters. Should I have a breast lift or breast augmentation? If augmentation is best, which treatment is better? An implant or fat injections? A: The key to knowing whether a lift or the addition of volume can make the breast look better depends on the position of the nipples. If the nipple sits above the lower breast fold, then volume is the answer. While I do not know exactly what your breasts look like, knowing the distance from your nipples to the sternal notch is only 22 centimeters tells me your nipples are definitely above the inframammary folds. That is essentially a completely normal or ideal nipple position; the normal range is 18 to 22 centimeters depending on the length of one’s torso. The use of fat injections for augmentation of a variety of body areas has become very popular in plastic surgery recently. While it is widely accepted for volume augmentation of the face and buttocks, its use in the breast is controversial. This is because an augmentation method already exists that works well and is very reliable – an

www.youarecurrent.com

implant. For overall breast augmentation, an implant works better, is a one-step procedure and will cost less. If there is just one area of the breast that needs filled in, then fat injections become the preferred treatment. Q: I am a 31-year-old female looking to improve the side profile of my face. I have a lot of fat under my chin and this causes an awful side profile. It also shows from the front. From what I’ve read about neck liposuction, this could be a good option. But I’ve also read that chin implants can be useful for improving one’s profile as well. Which one would be best for me or do I need both? A: Improving the profile of the neck and jawline must take into consideration whether excess fat and loose skin exists, and the amount of bony chin projection. The combination of neck liposuction and chin augmentation can be a very powerful changer of one’s profile, assuming one has a weaker chin to start. The best way to answer whether chin augmentation is beneficial is through computer imaging. See what your profile would look like with neck liposuction and with or without chin augmentation. Seeing is believing. Dr. Eppley is an Indianapolis board-certified plastic surgeon. Comments can be sent to info@ eppleyplasticsurgery.com

DISPATCHES » Groupon remorse? – In a new survey, approximately 400 businesses that have offered special discounts through Groupon, LivingSocial, and other daily deal sites in the past were asked if they had plans to run daily deals in the future. More than half (52 percent) said they wouldn’t offer a daily deal in the next six months, while 24 percent said they’d run just one deal in the half-year ahead. -www.moneyland.time.com » Small-business owners to hire? – The December edition of SurePayroll’s Small Business Scorecard, a nationally recognized economic indicator that tracks the health of the U.S. small business economy, was recently released. According to the report, hiring ended down 3.2 percent year-to-date nationwide and paycheck size also decreased 0.8 percent year-to-date. However, optimism

increased to 63 percent from 53 percent the past two months, rising from an all-time low of 33 percent in September. Additionally, 50 percent of small-business owners said they plan to hire in 2012 and 56 percent intend to raise wages for some or all employees. Only 2 percent indicated they would reduce wages. » Rich is $34,000? – It only takes $34,000 a year, after taxes, to be among the richest 1 percent in the world. That’s for each person living under the same roof, including children. (So a family of four, for example, needs to make $136,000.) About half of theses people – 29 million – live in the U. S., according to calculations by World Bank economist Branko Milanovic in his book “The Haves and the Have-Nots.” Another four million live in Germany. Statistically speaking, none live in Africa, China or India despite those being some of the most populous areas of the world. -www.money.com

Stock picks for 2012 Oneok Partners (OKS) – Nothing like being in the right place with the right pipeline capacity. Oneok’s system is a good match with the increasing volumes of natural-gas liquids (as opposed to natural-gas gases) being produced in the shale boom in the U.S. Into 2013, there will be a shortage of natural-gas liquid pipeline capacity in the region, which guarantees that Oneok’s system will be filled at solid prices. The company recently raised its estimate of distributable cash flow for 2011 to $850 million to $880 million from an earlier projection of $735 million to $760 million. That’s the kind of growth in payout an investor in a master limited partnership wants. Western Gas Partners (WES) – This MLP formed in 2008 with assets spun off by Anadarko, which remains a major investor. Beginning with six gathering systems and a transmission line in Texas, the Rockies and the Mid-Continent when it went public, the partnership has added

assets such as a gathering system in the Powder River Basin that have increased the system’s natural-gas liquids exposure. Almost all of Western Gas Partners’ revenue comes from long-term, fee-based and fixed-price contracts, so cash flow is extremely stable. The unit’s current yield is about 4.1 percent.

As the packed workout facilities will attest, we like to resolve to do new things at the start of a year. I get it. I do it, too. But, does positive change have to start at the beginning of a year and is it mentally healthy? Here’s my big-picture resolution – improve daily. You can create a new habit in 30 days. So if I think of something I want to improve every day and put it in action, in 30 days I will have created a new positive habit. I’m shifting the power of New Year’s to any time during the year. Why not empower every day with the ability to change the things you don’t like? Most resolutions are founded in self-improvement (or self-hatred) and rooted in dissatisfaction. You want to change the things you don’t like (or hate) about yourself – lose weight, drink less, quit gossiping, stop smoking and the like. Self-hatred is a dangerous thing. I’ve always remembered the saying, “Your subconscious can’t take a joke,” as a response to someone who made a self-deprecating comment. Think about it. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know how to joke, it’s practical and it has a good memory. Unmet resolutions or any goal founded in your dissatisfaction with yourself can eat away at your subconscious mind and empower your fears. Happy people are more successful. Happy

people are more attractive. Happy people, well, are happier. Create happiness for yourself and throw out the resolutions, replace them with realistic changes you want for yourself with timelines that fit. This year, instead of a list of resolutions, I’m making a list of things that make me happy. Here’s to your happiness this year! David Cain works at MediaSauce, a digital media and online marketing company in Carmel. David welcomes your questions or comments at David.Cain@MediaSauce.com.

Canmarc Real Estate Investment Trust (CANNF) – Canmarc owns a portfolio of 84 commercial and retail properties in Canada. Office vacancies in Canada are running at about half the rate in the U.S. So it’s not surprising Canmarc has attracted a takeover bid from Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust. Canmarc’s management has rejected the bid, and the market certainly thinks that a) Canmarc is now in play and b) it will attract a bid above the Canadian $15.30 that Cominar has offered. Analysts think Canmarc could attract a bid as high as Canadian $17.50. -www.money.msn.com

Removing walls and bulkheads makes a difference REMODELING By Larry Greene ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home was built in 1985 in the Thistlewood subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The homeowner has lived in the home since 2000. When asked why they remodeled, their response was, “It was time to update. We always hang out in the kitchen and we’ve been thinking about remodeling for a couple of years. We like the neighborhood and our neighbors and we wanted to stay put!” REMOVING WALL AND BULKHEADS: The structural engineer determined the wall separating the kitchen from the family room was nonload bearing. This made it economical to completely remove the wall and open up the two rooms. The existing carpet in the family room was removed and new prefinished hardwood flooring was installed. “We are so glad we had the wall taken down between the kitchen and the family room. What a dramatic difference it makes in opening up the entire house.” The existing bulkheads in the kitchen were removed and the drywall was patched and the lighting was relocated. This allowed the new wall cabinets to be extended completely to the ceiling including decorative two-piece crown molding.

Before NEW CABINETS AND MORE STORAGE: The new maple cabinets are painted in cashmere white with raised panel full-overlay doors and flat slab drawers, with dovetail drawer boxes and full-extension drawer glides. Other updates include a stone-tile backsplash, under cabinet lighting, pendants over the peninsula and dark granite countertops. The homeowner commented, “We’ve increased our storage capacity tremendously. We had the peninsula updated with some beautiful new pendant light fixtures.” FINAL RESULT: The homeowner commented,

ARE YOU STRESSED OUT BY YOUR BUSINESS?

After “Our newly remodeled kitchen area is warm and inviting. The designers were able to capture the reflection of our style. Our home seems more up-to-date and really brings our whole house together. We absolutely love it!”

The magnificent seven LAUGHS By Dick Wolfsie Is it too late to break … I mean make … some resolutions for 2012? I have compiled a list of several work goals I have set for the new year: Give each humor column a catchy intro. Last week I wrote this great first line for a future column: “I’m in pretty good health right now, and I hope that next year when I reach 65 years old, all my parts will be working – especially Medicare parts A, B and D. I will avoid puns. For example, in a column last year, I wrote about a report by the FDA warning trace amounts of peanuts were somehow getting into jams and jellies, a concern for people with certain food allergies. “This is Jensen down in security. There’s a suspicious looking character who wants entry into our processing plant.” “Well, who is it, Jensen?” “He says he’s a federally approved additive, but between you and me, I think he’s some kind of a nut.” I changed my mind. Scratch number two. I will try to avoid repetition of certain expressions. Last year I used “going to the slammer” in reference to people sentenced to jail. Next year, I’ll be sending people to the pokey, the crowbar hotel, the big house, the freezer and up the river. I will spend less time thinking up headlines for my features. Newspapers seldom use my suggestions, since they are not the same width as

Fishers, we want to hear from you! This is YOUR newspaper, so please send your story ideas, news tips, news releases, letters and photographs to our managing editor, Jordan Fischer, at jordan@youarecurrent.com

the column. Here are a couple examples: • Bra Vo (About spam mail I received selling intimate apparel) • Non Scents (About my losing my sense of smell) I will wrap up each essay with an unexpected conclusion. My wife already enjoys each finale. Here was my favorite last paragraph in a story about my decision to start a fitness program: “My macho neighbors helped me lug a huge barbell up to the second floor of our house. I hoped that after working out with lighter weights, I would be able to lift this new behemoth all by myself. Mary Ellen thought it looked ugly in our bedroom. So she took it down to the basement.” Well, it made my wife laugh. I promise to cut my wife a little slack … unless she annoys me or does something really silly, like what she did Christmas morning. I’ll tell you the whole story in next week’s column. Finally, I will endeavor to make my writing more concise. My columns are usually about 600 words, but last year, I honed a few of them to less than 580. Newspaper editors tell me the less I write, the better. Thank you. I think.
