America’s Got Talent — in Fishers

By Nancy Edwards • nancy@youarecurrent.com

A local musical duo has performed for the Super Bowl, appeared on “Parks and Recreation” and played during a concert with Christian Music artist Michael W. Smith. One of the band members may have a chance to be seen on TV again, this time on “America’s Got Talent.” Travis Frank, 19, is half of a Fishers Christian rock/ pop band, KandTFrank. The K in the band’s name stands for his dad, Kelly, 44. Kelly, a broker/owner for Creative Approach Realty by day, enjoys his creative outlet of “’80s hair band meets evangelical” on evenings and weekends. Father and son may have different opinions — Travis plays acoustic, electronic dance and a bit of hiphop — but they both incorporate positive messages in their songs. A few years ago, they created a 10-track CD titled “Come Close to Me,” “a mash of his songs and my songs,” according to Kelly, for those who either can’t get enough of the sounds of Van Halen or prefer

hip-hop. Kelly started a Christian rock band in the ‘90s. It didn’t take long for Travis to take interest. “Travis was carrying cords around at age 1,” Kelly said. “He was always with us around the music.” “Music is a big part of our family,” Travis said. “I started writing songs at 13 but didn’t get serious (about music) until I was 14 or 15. I released my first video at 14.” Travis has had plenty of practice with his dad; the two typically perform at venues such as Fox & Hound in Carmel and Cheeseburger in Paradise in Fishers. The teenager also is studying music production and wants to learn as much as he can about the industry. Later this month, Travis will be auditioning on “America’s Got Talent.” He is determined to reach his goals — with help from a lifelong inspiration, his dad. “I think he’s young enough and has the ambition to succeed,” Kelly said. “Until then, I’ll jam with him as much as I can.” For more information on Kelly and Travis, go to www.kellyandtravisfrank.com.

Decorating DVD Review James Gandolfini may not have been most people’s idea of a romantic lead, with looks like an ex-jock gone to pot and wallowing in anger. But the late actor showed just how much charisma he harbored in his balding, paunchy body in “Enough Said,” an affecting romantic drama from writer/director Nicole Holofcener.

If your windows endured the subzero nights without the benefit of a covering, the energy lost will probably be visible when the next gas bill arrives – regardless of how energy efficient your windows might be. Any type of covering over a window in the dead of winter is better than nothing. Even a quilt tacked to keep the cold in its place is better than exposed glass when the thermostat dips.

Nickel Plate: Speakers on films

By Nancy Edwards • nancy@youarecurrent.com Nickel Plate District is alive this winter with a new program designed for classic movie buffs and those who enjoy film series learning. The Nickel Plate Theatre Film Speaker Series will debut on Jan. 17 at Fishers Public Library, 5 Municipal Drive. “What we’re doing is showing pop culture classics paired up with a community member and a presentation,” said Dan Domsic, community engagement and volunteer coordinator for Fishers Parks and Recreation. “The idea of the series is to really bring together different community members and partners. This is something informative and enlightening and entertaining. Keeping Nickel Plate alive during the winter is something we’re really excited about.” The free event kicks off with the movie, “Rocky,” a 1976 film starring Sylvester Stallone about a boxer, along with a demonstration from local fitness club, Title Boxing Club. The second event, on Feb. 7, features “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” with local attorney Mark Cannon discussing his experience going to Washington, D.C. and to the State Capital to advocate for cancer issues on behalf of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. “My goal is to convince people that engaging in the political process is important and that anyone can participate,” Cannon said.

If you go: Guests are welcome to bring their favorite movie snacks and drinks. For more information, contact, Fishers Public Library at 579-0300 or Dan Domsic at domsicd@fishers.in.us.

The third event, scheduled for March 14, features local Holocaust survivor Frank Grunwald and Kelly Watson, a Fishers Junior High teacher who has taught about the Holocaust. Their round-table discussion will be paired with the movie, “Misa’s Fuge.” Domsic said these films will appeal to a wide audience, because guests will see the value in every film. The event is family friendly, however it is recommended for audiences ages 12 and older. To register for the film speaker series, please go to www.help.lib.in.us, click on the calendar of events, click on the month, then click on event registration.

Two economic developments approved news@currentinfishers.com The Fishers Town Council approved two resolutions Jan. 8: one that paves the way for Colorado-based bioluminescent government technology company Vox Lumen to relocate its headquarters to Fishers, and another that solidifies a five-year lease extension with OfficeWorks. Spearheaded by the Fishers Advantage initiative, together the two agreements bring more than $12.5 million in investment to Fishers. “The Vox Lumen and OfficeWorks agreements highlight the overarching appeal of Fishers — no matter the industry,” said Fishers Town Council President John Weingardt. “Diversification is very important to the long-term sustainability of our economy. Our quality of life, stellar workforce and low cost of doing business will continue to draw innovative businesses of all kinds to Fishers.” Vox Lumen intends to relocate its global headquarters from Littleton, Colorado to Fishers, investing $12 million and adding 87 jobs in January 2014 with plans for an additional 83 new jobs

over the next five years. The Town of Fishers’ assistance includes $800,000 to purchase manufacturing equipment and is expected to be repaid by the personal property tax paid by Vox Lumen. The company plans to lease 117,000 square feet at 11899 Exit Five Parkway.   OfficeWorks has agreed to a five-year lease extension in its current building at 12000 Exit Five Parkway. Currently, the company has 55 employees and plans to add seven positions over the next five years. OfficeWorks and its landlord plan to invest a total of $700,000 in building improvements and equipment with $150,000 in assistance from the Town of Fishers.   In addition to approval by the Council, the Fishers Advantage deals must also be approved by the Town’s Redevelopment Commission and Economic Development Commission at future meetings in January. The Fishers Advantage, Fishers’ aggressive economic development initiative, has recruited over 1,250 jobs and retained nearly 400 jobs over the past 30 months by highlighting the excellent business climate, quality of life and talented workforce in Fishers.

Peterson seeks council re-election news@currentinfishers.com Pete Peterson filed for re-election to the Fishers City Council Dec. 8. As vice president of the Council, Peterson said he Election has worked to provide structure to one of Indiana’s fastest growing communities by advocating for a safe and friendly community. Peterson represents the Southeast District. “I am truly humbled to have been able to serve Fishers the past few years, and I look forward to continuing what we have started,” he stated. “I am proud of the work I have accomplished for my district as well as the City of Fishers. I have advocated for lower taxes and fiscal responsibility, making Fishers one of the most attractive places for businesses and families in the United States. I’m proud to call Fishers home and look forward to continuing to serve the people of the Southeast District.” Peterson has helped Fishers grow through several projects including the completion and opening of the Amphitheater and Nickel Plate District. Peterson also voted to approve the new intersection at I-69 and 106th Street on which construction will begin next year, making way for more than 300 acres of business development. He worked hard to approve a study for Geist Reservoir that will look at whih actions need to be taken in order

to preserve and treat one of Fishers’ most precious resources. Peterson has made infrastructure for Fishers a priority as he voted for several road improvement projects, including additional roundabouts at Geist Road and 106th Street and 106th Street and Cumberland Road. His financial background is an invaluable asset to the Fishers City Council. Peterson said he understands budgets and how to manage money in a way that has helped keep taxes low in Fishers. This philosophy is conducive for businesses and friendly for residents, allowing positive growth to occur, he said. Peterson has been a resident of Fishers since 2002.

I.W.I.N. helps breast-cancer patients By Holly Kline • news@currentinfishers.com

Indiana Women in Need is a local organization dedicated to assisting breast cancer patients with their everyday needs while health they endure various treatments. Nancy Shepard is a registered nurse and the founder of the I.W.I.N. foundation. “We provide things like housekeeping and lawn maintenance,” Shepard said. “Our most popular need is for the gas and/or transportation to a patient’s treatments. Our next most popular need is meal preparation or assisting with the cost of groceries, and we also do wellness services like massage and exercise classes.” I.W.I.N. started in 2000 and is a 501(c)(3) organization that relies solely on donations and private grants; the foundation serves patients throughout the state of Indiana. “I got started in the cause with the intention of raising funds to give to another organization,” Shepard said. “Other survivors said that it was good to support organizations that are trying to find a cure, but that there weren’t any services available to help patients with everyday tasks while going through surgery and/or treatments.” Patients learn about I.W.I.N. in a variety of ways. “They hear about us from social workers and nurses and especially in rural areas, we’ve seen increased awareness through word of mouth,” Shepard said. Both women and men are eligible for I.W.I.N.’s services; patients start the process by filling out an application found at www.iwinfoundation.org.

In July, I.W.I.N. celebrated providing $1 million in services and hopes to keep going. “I am the founder but I’m not a paid CEO,” Shepard said. “We’ve operated as a true volunteer grassroots organization and we’re looking for Indiana-based businesses to partner with.” Visit www.iwinfoundation.org to learn more about I.W.I.N.’s accomplishments and needs; third-party fundraiser ideas are always welcome.

A secret destroying our country Commentary by Mike Colaw

It hit me about five years ago while teaching a class of young adults. Many were graduate students who were brilliant … spirituality and they knew it. Thanks to smart phones, they could fact-check me on the spot! Was my quote accurate and in context? They could find out in seconds. They were quick to “well, actually…” me. Have you ever met someone like that? We are raising an army of them, so if you haven’t yet, you will. While I believe strongly in the value of education, something is missing. In a sea of prolific, young, know-it-all Googlers taking the world by storm, something is truly missing.  While I was teaching a class with the aforementioned young adults, it hit me how lost they were. Not lost like I don’t know WHAT the answer is or WHERE I am; lost like I don’t know WHO I am. That’s when I realized my technical school-educated, South Dakota-born, Harley-riding Grandpa had something these young adults are sailing further and further away from. Grandpa spent a lifetime honing who he was, yet we obsess over what we know. It appears a little knowledge used wisely is BETTER than a lot of knowledge that just puffs up. A marksman with a bow is BETTER than a toddler with a machine gun. Here is what bothers me. We are raising a generation of people who have access to a lot of

information, but we are neglecting to teach them what it means to be “good.” In fact, we avoid it because we don’t know what “good living” is anymore! Even our education system has pulled away from requiring students to actually “get” what they are learning. Think about it. We live in a world where someone can get a master’s degree in business administration and not actually have the capacity to lead at all, or even a crooked lawyer. How does this happen, you may ask? Because we are teaching our kids that all they have to do is remember facts for a test, and we neglect to develop WHO they are. So here is the dirty little secret that is killing us: A person can be factually correct, yet be a complete mess of a human, a “know-it-all” who has no wisdom, a toddler with a machine gun of facts (often unverified) doing more harm and creating infinite confusion.  Here is my prediction: if we don’t bring this “noble character” back, it doesn’t matter how much more information we discover or share … we are done.

How did Fishers manage last week’s snow, winds, ice and cold?

said. “Those are when we really see falls; everyone is back up and around and forgetting to use caution.”

On the mend

By Nancy Edwards • nancy@youarecurrent.com Last week’s winter storm that blanketed central Indiana with more than a foot of snow in some locations is arguably the worst weather seen here in decades. Snow began to fall Jan. 5 at the rate of 1 Cover story to 1 ½ inches per hour. Temperatures plunging well below zero froze efforts to revive the area for days. A travel warning was issued and visibility was reduced to ¼ to ½ mile. In Hamilton County, the number of those without power rose dramatically from 180 residents to 3,000 in less than a day.

Refuge from shelters

Those affected by power outages were offered temporary refuge at Carmel High School. When the number of residents without power grew by the thousands in Noblesville and Fishers, a second shelter was opened at Fall Creek Intermediate School. However, many residents who owned pets were reluctant to leave them behind. After the shelter at Fall Creek Intermediate closed its doors on the morning of Jan. 7, a shelter that welcomed residents with pets opened that afternoon at Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds. “It was a reality; people weren’t leaving because of their pets,” said Thomas Sivak, executive director of Hamilton County Emergency Management. “Those without power had gone more than 12 hours or longer. Temperatures could be as low as 23 degrees.” Rebecca Stevens, executive director of the Humane Society for Hamilton County, reiterated the importance of keeping pets inside. “With temperatures as frigid as they are, a dog house doesn’t matter. That’s not enough. Any bowl of water outside is going to freeze. If it’s too cold for you to be outside, it’s too cold for them,” she said.

Frigid temps and bodily harm

With temperatures plunging well below zero after the storm, frostbite was a concern as drivers slid off icy roads into snowdrifts, waiting for an ambulance to arrive, according to Bill Bean, emergency room physician for Riverview Hospital in Noblesville. “It’s certainly something we’re dealing with this week,” Bean said. “A lot of (drivers) are in unplanned exposures, getting stuck in

vehicles outside when that wasn’t their intention.” Some people also may be unaware that being outside for longer than 10 minutes without being fully protected can lead to frostbite, according to Catherine Michael, physician for St.Vincent Hospital in Fishers. “Respect the weather; be aware that the amount of time spent outside is limited,” she said. “It’s highly dependent on temperatures and extreme wind chills.” Michael also encourages residents anxious to start shoveling their driveway to take precautions, particularly if they are out of shape or older. “I saw one patient who had a heart attack from shoveling snow,” Michael said. “It’s a very common event.” In addition, Michael advised practicing safety measures when using electric devices such as snow blowers. “Someone stuck their hand in to relieve a clog,” she said of a recent patient. “Never do any troubleshooting without taking your hand out first.” As temperatures get warmer and people come out of hibernation, they should still use extreme caution when walking, according to Bean. “There are still slick points on the sidewalk and on the road,” he

Initially, some drivers were still on the roads the day the winter storm arrived, which caused difficulty with plowing the streets, according to Autumn Gaisor, director of public relations for the Town of Fishers. “We were ordering people to please stay off the streets,” she said. “That’s partly why travel warnings are in place, so we can effectively clear the roads.” However, just a few days later, the Town of Fishers Department of Public Works had removed snow from almost 100 percent of the roads, according to Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness. “DPW has been working around the clock and done a remarkable job,” Fadness stated. “The severity of the storm and extreme temperatures have proven challenging, but DPW continues to push forward and is close to completion.” From the beginning of the snowstorm through Jan. 8, Fishers had plowed 37,472 total miles of roads, delivered 2,045 tons of salt through snow trucks and dispersed 22 bags of salt on sidewalks, according to Gaisor. In addition, the wages for drivers working around the clock, including overtime, totaled $71,489. Although most local businesses and schools were ordered to close while the snow trucks were on the road, Dan Canan, president/CEO of the Fishers Chamber of Commerce, was optimistic that the weather did not hurt the economy. In fact, he said, there was an increase in business at certain locations. “Grocery stores have seen a surge in business; any auto repair, auto parts stores seem to be very busy on Monday,” Canan said. “For every one negative impact on a business there’s been a positive impact.” As a result of DPW’s success, area schools were expected to open Jan. 9. The Indiana DOE informed schools that no make-up days were required for Jan. 6 and 7 if they submit a waiver.

Not out of the woods yet

Thawing temperatures will bring relief to residents, but we’re not out of the woods just yet. The melting snow is likely to lead to flooding, a critical issue facing the county. “We’ll have to monitor (the forecast) as temperatures rise and snow melts,” said Hamilton County Sheriff Mark Bowen. “Highway department agencies are addressing those concerns with flooding.”

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP Working through the winter wallop “Weather happens.” It’s an age-old expression that has been emanating from newsrooms for as long as either of us can remember. Still, what happened to all of us last week was kind of otherworldly. It had been some time since these parts experienced anything like the wallop of ultra-frigid air that followed the foot of snow. It was the unrelenting (for a time, anyway) cold blast that had us drop our cavalier attitude and start to wonder just how safe the community was. As it turned out, we all escaped mostly unscathed. But along the way, our editors – working from their kitchen tables or elsewhere at home – went into overdrive with online and social-media postings. We actually closed our office the day after the storm, a first. We weren’t about to put our associates at risk. It wasn’t a noble gesture, just the correct thing to do. That was Monday. Then came Monday night, and we almost lost our chicken-noodle soup when we watched Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard on the idiot box, telling local businesses to stay closed on Tuesday. He wanted more time to plow again. Understandable, but by that time roads were passable. We noticed businesses in our midst opened as soon as possible. Snow or not, commerce is their life’s blood. So, what of Ballard’s request? It’s possible he cost Indy’s businesses combined millions that second day, and it didn’t have to happen. While not exactly heroic, we had this joint humming at three-quarters speed Tuesday on behalf of readers and advertisers, and business was pretty darned swell. We often wonder to ourselves what makes some folks toss in the towel on occasion. Why not do all you can, responsibly, in a given moment or situation to “do what you do?” Maybe it’s just how we’re wired. Oh, well; here comes the rain.

FR O M   T H E EDITOR The power of community

The killer bathtub Commentary by Terry Anker Conventional wisdom tells us that the most dangerous place is our own homes. Accidents, fires and domestic violence are attributed with bringing more injuries, and even deaths, there than we’d encounter almost anywhere else. If we’ve survived this far into life, we have figured out the big stuff. We pay attention when using a sharp knife. We pay attention when working over a hot stove. We pay attention when parking the car in the attached garage. But even with smoke detectors and public service announcements, we seem to be missing the warning signs at our peril. Falling in the bathtub, missing a stair, forgetting a lit candle – these are the mundane and undetected killers. One is reminded, as American poet Emily Elizabeth Dickenson correctly predicted over 100 years ago, that, “If you take care of the small things, the big things take care of themselves.” But many of us live lives of harried exasperation. We multi-task (I’m not sure I even know what this term now means – but I

am confident that it is not a good idea). We are so preoccupied with our media and connectivity that we can barely remember the basics. We allow our bodies to be polluted with excess and atrophy from lack of use. We fall because we try to carry too much on a single trip. Overloaded and overburdened, we negate many of the tremendous advances offered by modern developments in product creation and manufacturing, instead taking vast, if unknown, risks to extract more from our days. Winter brings with it snow shovels and icy walkways – both killers! Add to the list the ladder required to remove the last of the Christmas decorations, and we are living in a war zone. Well, maybe it is not quite a war zone; but there is real danger. Be careful! Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

Q U O T E   O F  T H E   W E E K

“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others throw at him.”

Sidney Greenberg

Last week’s efforts by the Fishers and Hamilton County working together to ensure residents were safe on the road and taken care of by offering emergency shelters for those without power (one shelter even welcomed pets), and Meals on Wheels making direct contact with the elderly so that no one would go hungry, prove that our local area cares about its citizens. No wonder Fishers has been named one of the best communities in which to live, and one of the friendliest as well. Just recently, a very special elderly neighbor, who lived next door, passed away. I will never forget her generosity, from spraying the wasp nest I hadn’t yet noticed above my front door to helping me struggle with raking the abundant leaves in my yard. Phyllis had cancer. I once asked if I could do anything for her; she told me her needs were being met. The last few times I spoke with her, she told me the chemo was working and she felt better. Then one day I didn’t see her any more. No sign of her outside walking her dogs or working in her yard. I tried assuring myself that she was not feeling well and was temporarily staying with relatives. A few weeks ago, I noticed a lady bent over in Phyllis’s yard, raking her leaves. I said “hello” hoping for a miracle, hoping it was Phyllis and that she was back and doing well. As soon as I saw the person was a different neighbor, my heart sank. My heart beat fast for the news I dreaded to hear: Phyllis had passed away several days ago. Each day I saw Phyllis when she had cancer, I kept thinking I wanted to do something to cheer her up; I just didn’t know what to do. Phyllis died with no reciprocation on my part. I regret that. I regret not making the effort to know my other neighbors. I regret not paying more attention to those in need. Making a positive difference in people’s lives does not have to mean sacrificing hours a day. It can mean making a meal for them, stopping by to chat if they’re lonely or taking them out to the movies. Small acts are remembered in great ways.

I eat processed foods, a lot. I also don’t buy organic, except by accident. And finally, dairy, especially milk, is my favorite source humor of protein. And do you know what? I am healthy and fit, and rarely get sick, despite working in a school and living in close proximity to four not-always-clean children. So please, spare me the lecture! Yes, I am feeling a bit defensive lately of my eating and grocery shopping habits. Three times over the holidays, different people read me the riot act over my food choices. One was family, one was a friend and one I didn’t really know at all. The first two I can accept as well-wishers who only want what’s best for me, but the third totally honked me off. So let me lay it all out for you, and then maybe before you judge and criticize someone else, you’ll keep your mouth shut. We eat a ton of processed foods at Chez Wilson. Applesauce, whole-grain white bread, CheezIts, Trix yogurt, Meijer granola bars, Waffle Crisp, fruit snacks, SpaghettiOs, deli meats, the list goes on and on. But when you are trying to pack five lunches at 6:30 a.m. or have only 10 minutes to feed a kid before soccer, prepackaged, highly preserved food sources are a lifesaver. Do we eat this stuff all the time? No. But am I opposed to a lunch of Kraft cheese slices on bologna with mayonnaise and a Diet Coke? Most certainly not.

I once tried to go organic. A neighbor had suggested that the reason my children’s feet stunk as badly as they did was the hormones in the milk I was buying. After three weeks with no improvement in the odor and a significant increase in our grocery bill, I called it quits. I understand the principles behind organic and would love to be able to shop exclusively at Whole Foods, but frankly, it’s just too expensive. For me, organic is a luxury, not a necessity. And lastly, I love milk. Ice-cold, cow-created, 1% generic milk. It’s low-fat and high in protein and calcium, and pairs perfectly with Kellogg’s cherry Pop-Tarts, which, by the way, are my ritual nighttime snack. Can we get the nutrients elsewhere? Of course! But for kids who think chicken is the spawn of Satan, knowing that they are getting at least a little protein at each meal is comforting. The same goes for yogurt, cheese and cookie-dough ice cream. Soy and almond milk are just poorly disguised impostors. Bottom line, I’m doing a decent job of raising healthy and happy kids. If they are addicted to Oreos, Red Baron and Goldfish, so be it. There are a lot worse things. Peace out.

Retiring minds want to know Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

We were out for dinner with some friends and the conversation turned to retirement. Some of us were fully retired, some were humor semi-retired. And we were all just plain tired, which is how most of us feel after a big meal. The issue of pensions came up and I explained that when I left teaching in 1978 in New York, I was just one year shy of when I would have been entitled to any retirement benefits. Mary Ellen suggested I call the Retired Teachers Association to be sure. The woman who answered the phone had that familiar New York inflection. I felt at ease because I knew I could say the words “garage” and “drawer” and “mother” without someone making fun of my accent. Sadly, I had no way of working those words into the conversation. I explained the situation, to the woman who answered the phone, and to move things along, I said, “I know I am not entitled to benefits, but my wife made me call … so you have a happy holiday.” “Hold on, sir. I have some good news for you. A law was passed a few years ago vesting teachers after only five years. It’s retroactive, so you should qualify for that pension.” “But the bad news is that you are no longer a member of the Retired Teachers Association because you have been inactive for 35 years.” “Well, I do hit the treadmill twice a week, but I

understand, so thanks for your time and have a Merry … .” “Wait, Mr. Wolfsie. Now I have some good news. You can rejoin the Retired Teachers Association if you want.” Now for the bad news. In order to be reinstated after all these years, you must teach one more day in the state of New York. That’s the law.” That night I e-mailed the current principal at my old school requesting that he hire me for one day, maybe as a substitute. I also told him that I would happily take a homeroom, lunchroom or study hall assignment, which I had experience with as a teacher. And, coincidentally, those were my strong suits when I attended that very same high school. The principal didn’t think there would be any problem making this happen, but to be sure, he referred my request to the head of human resources, who, in turn, is going to talk to the attorney for the Retired Teachers Association. Yes, my brief return to the classroom will require some preparation. I’ll just have to work the words “garage” and “drawer” and “mother” into my lesson plan.

Commentary by Mike Redmond

New Year’s resolutions are all well and good, but let’s face it: By this time most of us have already broken one or two and by humor the end of the month, they’re all likely to be shattered. They’re just not promises with a lot of structural integrity. Part of the problem, I think, is that we tend to set the bar too high: I’m going to give up chocolate, for example, or I’m going to hit the gym every day for at least an hour and a half with double shifts on weekends and holidays. These resolutions, or versions of them, are among the most popular. They are also among the more difficult to keep. Who can reasonably be expected to give up chocolate? That’s like giving up breathing. And as for hitting the gym every day, I suppose it’s possible, but it’s hardly practical. As a recovering gym rat I can tell you that the allure of long, punishing daily workouts tends to fade after about, oh, two days. Now, these resolutions aren’t completely bad. They just need some wiggle room. Luckily, I know where to find it. The one about giving up chocolate, for example – I think it depends on what brand you were thinking of when you made the resolution. Most likely, it was a Hershey bar because 99 times out of 100, an American thinking of chocolate has a Hershey bar in mind. I know I do. That being the case, you can wriggle around

No disappointment with low bar

this resolution simply by avoiding Hershey bars, since that’s what you really meant. This serves the dual purpose of allowing you to keep your promise, sort of kind of, while indulging in all the other brands of chocolate out there. As for the resolution about the gym, it’s plainly apparent that all you are required to do is show up. Nowhere does it say anything about exercise. Therefore, all you have to do to keep your resolutions is go there and stand around for a while. No need to break a sweat since that wasn’t technically the premise of the promise. Wow. With truth-avoidance skills like mine, it’s amazing that I avoided a career in law or politics. If you are still going to make resolutions and, even worse, keep them, be sure to set the bar kind of low. I’m going to lose some weight is a good one. You’re not stuck trying to reach an unreachable goal – I’m going to lose 100 pounds by March 3 – and nowhere are you obligated keep the pounds off once lost. My personal favorite is I’m going to be a better person. This is really the gold standard in vague, easily-kept resolutions. All you have to do is think one less rotten thought and presto! You’re there.

Moscow Ballet’s ‘Swan Lake’ offers happy ending

By Jay Harvey • news@currentnoblesville.com  Opera and ballet history is strewn with initial failures — partial and complete — of works that later became durable ballet masterpieces. Such was the case with the ballet “Swan Lake,” which didn’t start on a path to immortality until the Russian master Marius Petipa revived the 1877 work in 1895. Tchaikovsky, the composer, went to his grave thinking his music was to blame for the disastrous premiere, but as an orchestral suite his score has been a staple in the concert hall as well. “Swan Lake” has never been out of the ballet repertoire since Petipa rescued it from the mishmash presented at the premiere, and it will come to the Center for the Performing Arts this week for three performances by an international touring company. The title refers to an enchanted lake populated by swans that briefly take on human form after the approach of Siegfried, a prince on a hunting trip who falls in love with Odette, their queen, as he learns of the spell the swans are under. He promises her eternal devotion; if the promise holds, the spell will be broken. The Moscow Festival Ballet uses the traditional four-act version devised by Petipa and

Lev Ivanov. “(It’s) the same as the original,” said assistant artistic director and ballet master Alexander Daev by email, “but our adaptation has a ‘happy ending.’” That means that the evil sorcerer who cast the spell is defeated in the end. “No power can stop a young man whose heart is so full of love,” the program note says idealistically. Founded in 1989 by Sergei Radchenko, then a principal dancer with the Bolshoi Ballet, the Moscow Festival Ballet is “a strictly touring company,” Daev said, except for occasional summer festivals in Moscow. Its current American tour finds it traveling with seven shows, the backdrops, props and costumes for which are packed into a 53-foot semi. Two large buses accommodate 40 dancers and three technical,

driving and management staff. The company has emphasized the classical repertoire from the start. There have been a few modern works, some of them commissioned, over the years. On the current tour, Daev said, only one ballet is not a restaging of the original choreography, but something all its own. That’s the company’s version of “Romeo and Juliet” (music by Prokofiev), choreographed by Elena Radchenko, the founder’s wife and MFB’s artistic director. The Russian National Orchestra makes all the recordings the company uses on tour, and sometimes accompanies the troupe in its Moscow performances. The dancers come mainly from Russia and Kazakhstan. Those dancing the principal roles on opening night here will be Olga Gudkova (Odette), Maria Sokolnikova (Odylle, the sorcerer’s daughter), Nurlan Kinerbaev (Prince) and Viacheslav Tapharov (Jester). “Swan Lake” • Moscow Festival Ballet production; choreography by Marius Petipa, Lev Ivanov and Yuri Grigorovich; music by P.

Jazz that brings people together

By Chris Bavender • news@currentnoblesville.com

A vibrant personality and musical pedigree make Jon Batiste and his band Stay Human a must-see for central Indiana music fans. “Here’s a young man from New music Orleans who grew up in a musical family, then lived in New Zealand, and has a fondness for Brazilian music. He’s only 26-years-old but has this incredible background from attending Julliard to musical collaborations with Wynton Marsalis, Lenny Kravitz, and Harry Connick Jr.,” said John Hughey, a spokeman for the Center for the Performing Arts. “His current album Social Music has depth and richness, reflecting all of those influences. And to top it off, his music is intended to bring people together.” And getting Batiste to come to Carmel has been in the works for some time. “Both the Center’s CEO, Tania Castroverde Moskalenko, and artistic director, Michael Feinstein, had Jon on their list for this season,” Hughey said. “Wynton Marsalis speaks so highly of him and his talent – it was a great fit for the Center’s lineup.” Batiste attended The Juilliard School where he trained in jazz and classical music. Stay Human band members – drummer Joe Saylor, Ibanda Ruhumbika on tuba and Eddie Barbash on alto sax - also attended the prestigious school. So, what can people expect from the show? “Think about how a street performer draws a

crowd in the middle of a city. That’s the energy that (Batiste) brings together using elements of jazz, funk, classical music and pop. You get to hear what you like, and what you are most familiar with from your own experience,” Hughey said. “The intent is to bring people together from all walks of life. That’s the basis of ‘social music.’ I would not be surprised to find the audience on their feet the entire evening, dancing and clapping.” Jon Batiste • The Tarkington Theatre at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel • 7:30 p.m. Jan. 15 • Tickets start at $15 • For more information call 843-3800 or visit www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org

Many retirees in Carmel are downsizing - selling their large houses along with many of their possessions and moving into business independent living communities like the Barrington or many of the new apartments that are slated to be built in Carmel in the coming year. And one Carmel man has found a way to help seniors and their families make a profit by assisting with the sale of their gently-used automobiles with his year-old start-up business Senior Autos. “Many caregivers are out of town, and when they move mom or dad to a senior living center, they don’t know what to do with the automobile,” said Senior Autos owner and Purdue University graduate Greg Blachly. He said he got the idea for his business after moving his mother down from northwest Indiana into a senior living center. “I’m not a dealer,” he said. “I do not buy and sell cars, so I don’t have a lot.” Blachly serves as an intermediary, helping his clients bridge the gap between buyer and seller by assisting them price the vehicle based on current market value through the use of Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds, develop an online marketing strategy, negotiate a price and generate a bill of sale and transfer of title if requested. “The difference between going retail and going

wholesale can easily be a few thousand dollars, dependent upon the value,” Blachly said. He also does not work on commission. Instead Blachly said he charges a flat fee for his service. Blachly finds his clients through admissions staff and social workers in senior living centers, elder care law practices and personal referrals. Dementia care and Alzheimer care areas are also growing sources of referrals as these patients are forced to give up their driving privileges. “A lot of people don’t think about that until it happens to them,” he said.

American Express ordered to refund $60 million to customers - The CFPB, a federal agency that monitors how financial products and services work for consumers, said that American Express engaged in unfair billing tactics and deceptive marketing. More than 335,000 consumers were affected. American Express said it has started paying the remediation to customers, but wouldn’t say exactly how much it has paid back so far. According to the federal agency, American Express illegally marketed identity protection products and charged people without telling them that the services would be provided only after customers provided written consent.

SOURCE: MSN Money Report: Indiana power rates to rise by a third by 2023 - The state’s electricity rates will surge by nearly a third over the next 10 years, driven upward by new federal pollution restrictions on coal-fired power plants, the costs of new plants and other factors, a Purdue University research group predicts. That spike is expected to lead to an unprecedented flattening in demand for electricity in Indiana, with demand growing on average less than 1 percent — about 0.74 percent — each year over the next 20 years, according to the report. The reports shows that the projected surge in electricity rates will be sparked in part by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s first rules aimed at controlling mercury and other toxic air pollution from coal-fired power plants. Indiana gets nearly 80 percent of its electricity from such power plants. SOURCE: Yahoo Finance

Lose weight the right way

Commentary by Chintan Amin, MD

If you resolve to shed some extra pounds in 2014, it’s important to know the steps you should take – and those to avoid – to Wellness help improve your chances of not only losing weight, but maintaining a more ideal weight over time. Fundamentally, the most effective way to lose weight – and keep it off – involves modifying your lifestyle to include regular physical activity and healthier dietary choices. In an attempt to jump-start weight loss, some people turn to weight loss supplements, which are advertised prominently at this time of year. Product manufacturers usually claim these supplements increase metabolism, burn fat or block absorption of nutrients. If you’re thinking about taking a weight loss supplement, talk to your doctor first and consider the following: • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not regulate dietary supplements. They are not required to undergo the rigorous tests for safety and effectiveness that are customary for regulated drugs. • Most weight loss supplements have not been studied extensively, and only a very few are known to be minimally effective.

New Year baby - Proud parents Hal and Mallory Kolmerten welcomed their baby boy, Maximus Alexander Kolmerten, at 12:56 p.m. Jan. 2 – the first baby born in the new year at Riverview Hospital Maternity Center. Maximus, who his parents call Max, was delivered by Dennis Pippenger, M.D. Max weighed 9 pounds, 4 ounces and was 21 inches long at birth. He joins sister Emma, 6, who was also born at Riverview Hospital. (Submitted photo)

HEARING AIDS

When a supplement does work, it’s usually because the user has followed the manufacturer’s recommendations to exercise and eat a healthier diet while taking the supplement. • The ingredients in some weight loss supplements – even those that claim to be “all natural” – can interact with prescription medications you take. That’s why it’s important to talk with your healthcare provider before using any kind of dietary supplement. • Besides a very low-calorie diet, which is usually medically supervised, and weight loss surgery, no product, pill or diet has been proven to promote “fast” weight loss. In efforts to lose weight and keep it off, those who are most successful are the people who lose 1 to 2 pounds per week by combining a healthy, reduced-calorie diet with regular exercise. Crash diets and the empty promises associated with many of the weight loss supplements on the market today rarely help people achieve or maintain a healthy weight. Talk to your doctor about a healthy weight loss plan that’s right for you.

Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle (Photo by Don Knebel)

The Castle and the monster Commentary by Don Knebel

TALK TO A

LAWYER

DAY

Urquhart (pronounced “urkut”) Castle played a role in Scotland’s wars of independence and later battles between Presbyterians Travel and Episcopalians. But the castle’s ruins are one of Scotland’s most popular tourist destinations because they are associated with one of the world’s best-known monsters. What is left of Urquhart Castle lies on a point overlooking Loch Ness, 13 miles southwest of Inverness. The castle, once defended by a dry moat and a drawbridge, was begun sometime in the 13th century. Edward I of England captured it in 1296, beginning the wars of Scottish independence, which continued intermittently for about 60 years, with Scotland ultimately retaining its independence. The castle was the object of bloody battles seeking control of the Scottish Highlands, so it changed hands several times. In the late 16th century, the Grants, a powerful Episcopalian clan, restored the badly damaged castle for use as a private residence. In 1644, the “Covenanters,” Presbyterians seeking to establish religious dominance in Scotland, attacked the castle and robbed and expelled Lady Mary

Grant, who was staying there. The castle, owned by the Grant family until the early 20th century, was badly damaged and never again restored. St. Columba, an Irish missionary, brought Christianity to Scotland in the sixth century. He returned with a story of stopping by an unidentified fortress, converting its owner to Christianity and then encountering a “water beast” in the river flowing north from Loch Ness. According to the story, the beast, which had just killed a man, was repelled when Columba made the sign of the cross, giving lasting credibility to both the beast and Christianity. A sign outside Urquhart Castle suggests Columba visited an earlier fortress on the same site and equates his water beast with the Loch Ness Monster. Viewed from above the ruins of Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness is a beautiful lake, well worth the short trip from Inverness. If you get there, keep a lookout for the now-famous monster that helped Christianity take root in Scotland. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Beat the winter garden blues Commentary by Noah Herron

At this time of year, gardeners may begin missing their time outside and their green thumbs may turn another gardening color. Here are 10 ways to beat the winter garden blues: 1. Bring some houseplants into your home. Replace any unhealthy plants with new ones. Add a few houseplants to your collection. Ferns, peace lilies, and bamboo plants are all great for filtering indoor air. 2. You can still grow herbs indoors. Place a few pots in your kitchen window and sprinkle in some basil, cilantro and parsley. They are easy to grow and add some zest to your winter meals. 3. Force some flower bulbs. Amaryllis bulbs are easy to care for and come in a large variety of colors and sizes. Add a beautiful pot to compliment the bulbs. 4. Clean, sharpen and organize your gardening tools for the upcoming season. Doing this now will let you spend more time where it counts – the garden. 5. Order your garden catalogs for 2014. Most seed companies start shipping out their new catalogs in December. 6. Visit your local garden center. Walk around and get some ideas for your up-

coming garden season. Talk with some experts and get advice for any problems you had the previous season. 7. Sit down and plan your garden. Start a fire, grab a blanket and map out your garden plans. Try maximizing your garden space for high yields of fresh fruits and vegetables. 8. Create an elegant terrarium in a conservatory for yourself. These are not only fun to grow but make an interesting conversation piece. 9. Make a garden sign. Get some great ideas by visiting Pinterest. Type in “Garden Signs” and scroll through all the beautiful ideas people have already done. Either use their ideas or change it up a bit to be your own personal creation. 10. Get a jump start on Indiana weather. Grab a grow light and heat mat and set up a grow room. Late February or March is a great time to start tomatoes, peppers, herbs and flowers from seed. The light and smell of something growing will shake those winter blues. Noah Herron is owner of Urban Farmer Garden Center at 4105 W. Ind. 32 in Westfield. He can be reached by calling 600-2807.

DISPATCHES Got a leak? Try tightening the valve stem packing nut. The next time you see a suspicious puddle of water, look for a leaky valve before you call the plumber. Look at the valve to see if water is leaking out around the valve stem. If it is, try turning the packing nut clockwise about an eighth of a turn with a wrench. If tightening the nut doesn’t stop the leak, you’ll have to shut off the main water valve, remove the handle and nut, and add to or replace the packing material – still a pretty easy fix.

Feeding the birds – Winter is the season for giving, and there’s no reason to stop with friends and neighbors. It’s fun to decorate a tree in the yard with treats for hungry birds, too. Since their natural food supply of seeds, nuts and insects dwindles when the weather is cold, you’ll be doing more than sharing a few snacks. Leaving fruit, nuts and other treats can attract beautiful birds to your winter yard. Offer the food on an evergreen tree or shrub in your yard that has sturdy branches, or move your Christmas tree outside after the holidays and use it. You can keep the tree in its stand or insert it into a big bucket of wet, heavy sand. Put it in a protected location to make sure it stays upright. www.hgtv.com
