The major differences between the possible future vision in the town’s master plan and downtown today are in some of the thoroughfares. New east/ west arteries include South Street, which at one time actually crossed the tracks. Lantern Road could be straightened for synergy with other road plans, according to Tom Dickey, director of community development. Another concern for the roadways in that corner of downtown is accessibility to tech businesses near the railroad tracks. The master plan also accounts for large storefronts if a developer proposes a large project.

Rotary Club prepares for second Fishers On Tap brew event By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com The Rotary Club of Fishers and Hoosier brewers are teaming up this February to pour craft beers for a cause. Fishers On Tap returns on Feb. 23 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the FORUM Conference & Events Center. The Rotarians plan to have a total of eight craft breweries available to sling samples of their brews including past participants Sun King Brewing Co., Upland Brewing Co., Bier Brewery, Flat12 Bierwerks and Barley Island Brewing Co. General admission tickets cost $40, and tickets for designated drivers are $20. Tickets can be purchased at www.fishersontap.com now and participating breweries. Money raised at the event will go toward Rotary International’s Foundation, which the Fishers club can access in the form of matching grants down the road. “We think that’s an incentive for folks – where else can I double my help and my contribution to somebody for nothing and go (to) get some good beer tasting,” Bill Jerrow, event co-chair and Fishers Rotary Club Deputy Governor, said. The club expects 350 guests to come out for the event, a 100-person increase from the inau-

According to Jerrow, the club was finalizing the list of breweries last week and pursuing opportunities to bring home-brewing retailers to the event. Also returning to Fishers On Tap is blues/ swing/jazz/funk band Abby and the Bad Advice, as well as food from MBP Catering and Sweet

Government

WHAT HAPPENED: Officer elections were held. What it means: The council held elections for the president and vice president. Councilor Scott Faultless nominated John Weingardt for president, and Pete Peterson was nominated by Councilor Michael Colby. After the vote, Weingardt took the center position at the council’s bench and presided over the meeting. Weingardt said he had heard and read others say now was a time to go into “cruise control” and wait until city government becomes a reality. That perspective bores him, he said.

What’s next: Weingardt and Peterson will hold the position for the year. The councilors are now rotating through the position until Fishers becomes a city.

WHAT HAPPENED: Items of the consent agenda were approved after item ‘f’ was stricken. What it means: The first five items were approved in the consent agenda, including resolutions declaring town property as surplus (and transferring and disposing of property) and approving a Memorandum of Understanding with IU Health Saxony. IU Health Saxony will be the title sponsor of the Summer Concert Series from summer 2013 through summer 2015 and provided the full amount of funding, $45,000, up front, according to a council action form.

10650 N Michigan Rd., Zionsville, IN 46077 | (888) 478-1917 | myindyford.com

What’s next: Each meeting has a consent agenda, and it changes every week.

WHAT HAPPENED: Item ‘f’ was stricken from the consent agenda. What it means: The item was discussed at the end of the council meeting. Item ‘f’ regards contract change orders for various projects, but Councilor Stuart Easley took issue with one specific change order. The order is for the 96th Street and Allisonville Road intersection project and increases the original contract amount from $531,530 to $656,282, an increase of $124,752, to carry American Structurepoint’s inspection and oversight services through the project, which now ends in May. Jeff Hill, director of engineering, addressed issues with the reasons for the contract change. The additional fee will keep American Structurepoint on through the completion, not account for an inspector the town did not provide to supplement the company’s efforts, which was the reasoning for the contract change in the paperwork, he said. Multiple councilors wanted American Structurepoint to address the council directly, tabling that one change for a future meeting. All other change orders were approved.

What’s next: The council will revisit the single change order in a future meeting. Town staff will find a date for American Structurepoint to come in.

Councilor Faultless’ 12 years as president ends By Dan Domsic • dan@yoaurecurrent.com At the Jan. 7 Fishers Town Council meeting, the councilors elected a new president and vice president, ending Councilor Scott Faultless’ 12year streak in the leadership position. Faultless started serving on the council in 1996 and started serving as the president in 2001. He said, “I’m not looking back in the rearview mirror…” As the town moves forward and inches closer to a city form of government, the council is taking an approach that will put the leadership positions into a rotating format each year leading up to the big vote. Councilor John Weingardt will serve as the council’s president, and Councilor Pete Peterson

will take up the vice presidential mantle this year. Faultless said the councilors met in a caucus after the results of the town/reorganized city/second-class city questions came in last November. The councilors found that this format would diminish the rolls and responsibilities of the council president and vice president as the new form of government takes root, according to Faultless. Now serving as a councilor in a regular capacity, he will turn his focus toward major projects in Fishers as time presses on, he said. The big projects Faultless will focus on include downtown redevelopment and a possible deal for the Town of Fishers and Hamilton Southeastern School District to come together on an indoor athletic city.

Cover Story

As support grows, Hamilton County will be asked whether it approves of expansion of mass transit By Robert Herrington and Dan Domsic news@currentinfishers.com The community landscape is changing through new infrastructure, businesses, real estate and construction, but could mass transit further evolve Hamilton County? In the coming months, the discussion of a dramatic expansion of mass transit in Central Indiana will become more prevalent as community leaders and citizens support the idea. A town that has seen explosive growth in the recent past and continues to work on infrastructure, Fishers stands poised for a push by groups for such an expansion. “I’m supportive as long as the economics work in the sense that it’s not going to entirely pay for itself,” Fishers town councilor, David George George said. When considering mass transit, the “entire concept,” including resulting economic activity, has to be considered, he said. “We (the town council) just like to make sure that every dollar used is going to be a dollar that’s going to get a dollar in return,” George said. Through the Indy Connect Now campaign, members of the Indiana General Assembly are urged to authorize a referendum that would allow a vote by Marion and Hamilton counties' residents on whether to fund the enhanced mass transit system. ICN Executive Director Ron Gifford said an attempt to pass legislation did not succeed last year, but he said he was hopeful this General Assembly would be different. “Rep. Jerry Torr (R-Carmel) is committed to passing the bill with the support of a bipartisan group,” he said. “We expect several other folks will sponsor the bill in January.” George said local communities could approach the legislature and ask for the ability to have control over or debate various issues, including transit. “I think it’s always good for the locals to go with a strong

Phase I calls for five rapid transit lines from downtown Indianapolis to Carmel, Noblesville and Westfield, with modern transit vehicles creating faster connections along key routes, as well as six express bus routes to provide quick access between major commercial centers. These lines are expected to be installed between 2017 and 2020. In addition to more bus routes, the Indy Connect plan will help decrease wait times at transit stops from an average of 30 minutes to 10 minutes on all the major lines. One rail line from Union Station in downtown Indianapolis to Noblesville will be in service by 2021. A Bus Rapid Transit station is currently planned for Carmel. Indy Connect Now Executive Director Ron Gifford said these expanded transportation options would help retain and attract talented employees to Central Indiana. The Phase I project comes with a $1.3 billion price tag but Gifford said almost half of that would come from federal grants. “We think we are really well positioned there,” he said.

stance and say to the legislature, ‘we’re capable to tackle this issue, and we’d like tackle it through a referendum,’” George said. To fund the Indy Connect plan, a voter referendum is needed to approve local funding in both counties.

Indianapolis is the 12th largest city in the country with a bus system that ranks 89th in the nation. Hamilton County’s population in 2010. The projected population is 359,035 in 2020; 435,321 in 2030 and 498,139 in 2040.

take up the issue during the new legislative session. Indy Connect Now and other organizations have met with the Fishers Town Council in the past, discussing the road map to mass transit during at least one work session. Gifford said expansion of the transit system would begin in 2014, with completion of the plan expected by 2022. He said the benefits of mass transit included connecting people to new job opportunities and healthcare facilities, mitigating traffic congestion and improving the environment (i.e., air quality) with electric and hybrid electric vehicles. What forms of transit and where new stops are established could impact how Fishers zones different areas of the municipality, according to George. George said the big negative with the opportunity for mass transit was the sheer dollar amount it would take to make a mass transit plan possible. He affirmed that the council was unlikely to take a strong stance on mass transit before solid numbers were presented. But to make money, money has to be spent. After taking multiple trips to areas impacted by mass transit, including Charlotte, N.C., George likens a rail line to diverting a river irrigate land. It spills life back into areas that previously were wilting in the elements. In his example, areas occupied by dilapidated factories and other buildings started being revitalized around rail. According to Gifford, an investment in mass transit could lead to real estate development featuring new businesses, shops and apartments that open along the new rapid transit lines throughout the county. Within five years of building a new 10-mile light-rail line in Charlotte, new development brought in $1.5 billion for a city smaller than Indianapolis. George said it’s not possible for Fishers to put the issue on any ballot before the state legislature acts. “The general assembly should give voters the Faultless right to decide if they want this as an amenity,” Scott Faultless, town councilor, said.

Opinion Rotating presidency makes good sense

A life-saving donation It is our position that Designer Skin should be recognized for their thoughtfulness and giving to one of our county’s worthy organizations and its inhabitants. On Jan. 4, Designer Skin made a $10,000 donation to the Humane Society for Hamilton County. The donation will go a long way toward saving the lives of animal’s that have been discarded or mistreated by their owners. HSHC Executive Director Rebecca Stevens said donations like this and the $24,526 check from the Sam Zeckel family in November were used to support the survivor program. Because the shelter does everything possible to save the lives of all animals, Stevens said these donations to the survivor program provided emergency and life-saving care to animals brought to the shelter. Designer Skin said the donation was possible because of the support of local customers at tanning salons who bought its Charmed tanning lotion, knowing the proceeds from their purchase went to the local shelters.

Traditionally traditional Commentary by Terry Anker Reminded of the erstwhile George Bailey crying out that he’d lost Zuzu’s petals, I wonder if the traditions carefully crafted in our own family will endure or quietly disappear. Would, if asked, our progeny identify seasonal traditions that have come to have meaning to them? And if so, would those named correspond with those intended by we parents at inception? Would the long valued and treasured patterns from my own childhood be lost as merged with those of my spouse and still again those derived from our own marriage? Remembering the most direct path to a direct answer is a direct question, “So children,” I queried, “What if any do you believe to be our family holiday traditions?” Without hesitation and in near unity, they responded that they took great value in the routine, designed to keep them away from the tree on Christmas morning, of sleeping on the floor of my wife and my bedroom. They didn’t speak to Midnight services, copious decorations or

receiving gifts. The tradition they’d found most meaningful was one that we didn’t even consider a tradition! Surprised by the response – especially in the consistency and conviction of answer – I listened as the boys recalled memories from one holiday to the next, of nights in sleeping bags, surrounded by dogs and Cheetos. They were right, this silly little pattern had become a tradition. And, it had become one that mattered – not just to them, but to me too. So this year, when we put away the last of our midnight snacks and extinguished all the lights, our bedroom found a 16-year-old just now taller than me, his 12-year-old brother not far behind, a happy dog, and a very content Mom and Dad. It’s not a grand tradition, but it’s ours and we love it.

Town voters have the perfect opportunity to watch what ultimately could be key players in the race for mayor with the changing of the guard at the head of the Fishers Town Council. Councilors unanimously elected John Weingardt as council president last week. He succeeds Scott Faultless, who held the position for 12 years and was a driver behind much of the growth and development of the town that will become a city in 2016. With conversion to cityhood will come a mayoral form of government, which we favor for this dynamic, growing municipality. Weingardt’s presidency is for one year, and another council member, determined by a vote of fellow councilors, will supplant him. The process will repeat until residents elect a mayor. The same goes for the vice presidency, now occupied by Pete Peterson. We expect to see varying leadership styles, and we also expect one or more councilors to emerge as potential candidates for mayor. What we hope will not happen with the rotating presidency is campaigning on the job. If the goal is service to the citizenry and the betterment of the municipality, then each person’s record will speak for itself, and campaigning will be done on the trail, if you will. Still and all, it’s a great opportunity for the residents to observe how this future city could be led. ••• With the Rev.

Humor

Keeping abreast of the busts Commentary by Danielle Wilson I’m not sure why, but for some reason bust size has been front and center in my recent conversations. Let’s explore further, shall we? It all started a few days ago when I learned a friend of a friend’s brother’s ex-roommate’s wife had successfully undergone breast augmentation. I have considered the surgery, so I’m always curious as to the cost and recovery and overall outcome of anyone who has actually had the nerve to go through with it. The gal in question had a wonderful experience; she had little to no down time (important when one has children and/or a job) and obviously saw immediate, big results. You go, girl! Several days later, I found myself not watching the Colts game but rather discussing the pros and cons of plastic surgery with the two women next to me. We focused mainly on the brazier region, though we tossed in tummy tucks for good measure. (And before you accuse me of hating on Pagano, know that any woman who has borne children has considered at least for a moment “fixing” the often-times disastrous physical aftermath of pregnancy and nursing, and when given a choice between “first and ten” and “liposuction,” she’s going to opt for the lipo.) Anyhoo, turns out both of them have also thought about some extra padding up top. Money is the biggest factor holding them back,

stvincent.org

especially when they think about all the better uses of a few extra grand. The boob trilogy ended with my annual mammogram yesterday, and for some reason, the procedure was much “twistier” and “tuggier” than I remember. My technician was lovely, but the squashing was far more pronounced this time. I had to wonder if my small size was the cause. Surely having more to work with would make the scanning easier? Of course, more surface area would mean more cold steel pressed up against me. Um, I’ll pass. Regardless, I was less tolerant of the screening and came home feeling slightly man-handled. At least buy a girl a drink first! So the chest area has been at the forefront of my life lately. Typically this only happens during swimsuit season when I see two of my sisters looking fabulous thanks to their own surgical C-cup plunges. What can it all mean? Is it just more acceptable and common to talk about plastic surgery these days, or is someone trying to tell me I should reconsider a little “enhancement” myself? I don’t know, but I’ll be sure to keep you abreast of the situation. (I’ve been trying to work that line in since this article began!) Peace out.

Comedy by Jeff Daniels hits Buck Creek stage news@currentinwestfield.com

Whether you are a fan of deer hunting or not, you’ll enjoy the Soady clan in Jeff Daniels’ “Escanaba in da Moonlight.” Opening Jan. 25 and running through Feb. 3 at Buck Creek Playhouse, 11150 Southeastern Ave., Indianapolis, you can join the fun and hilarity without the long drive up north. The story is narrated by Albert Soady, the patriarch, played by Ken Ganza. His two sons join him at the Soady Deer Camp, located “north of the Mackinaw Bridge and just south of heaven.” It’s just the guys here, doing what guys do at the start of hunting season. Beer, whiskey, cards ... the essentials. Albert’s oldest son, Rueben, played by Joe Siefker, is a dim hunter slouching into middle age, ostracized by the men in his family and the children of the town of Escanaba for his annual inability to bag a buck. Rueben joins his father, his brother Remnar, played by Stefan U.G. LeBlanc, and eccentric family friend Jimmer Negamany from Menominee, played by Tim Staggs, at the Soady deer camp for their yearly, alcohol-soaked ritual of tall tales and one-upmanship. Albert says of his younger son, “Remnar turned out to be pretty much what you’d expect from somebody who went by the name of Remnar.” Remnar is wildly enthusiastic about hunting season. “It’s like Christmas, with guns!” he proclaims. Jimmer was once abducted by aliens and spent a weekend in “shpashe.” Rueben has a bigger problem since he has never shot a buck, and is ridiculed by the entire population of the town of Escanaba. He hopes that this year he will break the curse and bring home a trophy buck with the help of his Ojibwa wife, Wolf Moon Dance, played by Cerissa Marsh. Otherworldly forces conspire to keep the Soady men from achieving their goals. However, soon after they set up camp, they’re plagued by blinding lights and hallucinogenic

visions, imparted to them – presumably – by UFOs. When Ranger Tom of the Dept. of Natural Resources (Dennis Karr) arrives on their doorstep, the Soadys know that their evening is about to become stranger still, and Rueben’s hopes of living down his reputation as “Da Buckless Yooper” are all but dashed. John D. Carver makes his return to direct for Buck Creek Players after last appearing on the stage as Nick in “A Little Christmas Spirit” in December. He also has previously directed “Bus Stop” for the playhouse in the fall of 2011. For more information or directions to the playhouse, visit www.buckcreekplayers.com.

Know More – Jeff Daniels was born in Athens, Ga., but was raised in Chelsea, Mich., where his father Robert owns The Chelsea Lumber Co. He attended Central Michigan University, but became involved in acting and dropped out to pursue a career as an actor. Daniels made his feature film debut in Milos Forman’s “Ragtime” in 1981.

‘The Other Dream Team’ • Not Rated, 91 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd During a slow week for new video releases, you might want to take time to check out “The Other Dream Team,” a scrappy little documentary about the Lithuanian national basketball team. Playing in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, the Lithuanians did not prove much of an actual challenge to the better-known Dream Team, which consisted of American NBA stars like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. (The U.S. beat them 127-76.) But, the team from Lithuania, which had for decades been absorbed as part of the Soviet Union, made history playing again as a sovereign nation, winning the bronze medal in the process. Director Marius A. Markevicius keeps the pace zippy, mixing archival footage of basketball

games, news reels of Lithuanians marching for their independence as the Iron Curtain fell, plus contemporaneous interviews with the players and their opponents. Some are familiar faces – like Arvydas Sabonis and Sarunas Marciulionis, who both went on to productive NBA careers – while many others we’re meeting for the first time. It’s an often thrilling portrait of young men who were playing for their country at a time when it was shrugging off the shackles of totalitarianism. They were living the real dream.

Top tips for a healthy new year Commenraty by Steven Hill, MD If your New Year’s resolutions include improving your health, there are important habits you can adopt to help keep you on track. The top three healthy habits for everyone are: Exercise regularly – The American Heart Association recommends that adults engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise each week. Aerobic exercise is generally recommended, and adults are encouraged to add weight/resistance training and stretching to their program. Eat healthy – Be sure your diet includes plenty of fruits and vegetables. Avoid foods high in salt, sugar and fat. Watch portion sizes and avoid snacking. Get adequate sleep – Adults typically need between seven and nine hours of sleep nightly. Avoid meals and exercise close to bedtime. Staying healthy this year also begins with the right preventive care. General preventive health guidelines for women and men include: Women • Schedule an annual check-up with your primary care doctor. • Have your cholesterol checked if you are older than 20; be sure your doctor also screens for pre-diabetes/diabetes. • Schedule a colorectal cancer screening beginning at age 50; earlier if you have a family history of the disease.

• Practice breast self-exams; have a clinical breast exam at least every three years in your 20s and 30s; schedule yearly mammograms beginning at age 40. • Begin cervical cancer screenings at age 21 and continue every three years (if results are normal) until age 65. • Schedule HPV screenings every five years between ages 30 and 65. Men • Schedule an annual check-up with your primary care doctor. • Have your cholesterol checked if you are older than 20; be sure your doctor also screens for pre-diabetes/diabetes. • Schedule a colorectal cancer screening beginning at age 50; earlier if you have a family history of the disease. • Begin prostate cancer screening at age 50; earlier if you are African American or have a family history of the disease. • Talk with your doctor about vaccinations you may need (flu, tetanus boosters, varicella/chicken pox, pneumonia). Steven Hill, MD, specializes in internal medicine. He is a guest columnist located at Indiana University Health Saxony Hospital, 13100 E. 136th St., Fishers.

Business How do you file an accident claim?

DOUGH

Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Samuel B. from Carmel: I saw a minor fender-bender yesterday in a roundabout on my way to work, and I realized I have no idea what I’m supposed to do if I have to file an auto claim. What should I know? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Being in an automobile accident, no matter how minor, is a scary thing. Your independent insurance agent should be able to provide you with a card to keep in your glove box that outlines everything you need to do if you are in an accident. Here is what we recommend. 1. Take a deep breath and assess the situation. Get your vehicle and passengers out of further harm if the vehicle is still operable. 2. Make sure no one in your vehicle needs immediate medical attention. Next, check the occupants of any other vehicle involved. 3. Call the police. It doesn’t matter how minor the accident. Having a police report filed will make your claim process much smoother. 4. Exchange insurance information and record the details. Make sure the other driver’s insurance is not out of date. Get their phone number, address, license plate number and the make and model of their car. 5. Use your camera phone to take pictures of your car from every angle and of any

damage. 6. Obtain a copy of the police report and call your independent agent to file a claim. Driving without insurance coverage in Indiana is illegal and a great way to end up with a suspended license or serious financial problems. The starting point for insurance in Indiana is the required state minimum coverages. The minimums are $25,000 per injured person, $50,000 per accident and $10,000 for property damage. The current cost of medical expenses and auto repairs make it clear that those amounts are not going to get you very far when it comes time to settle a claim. They also provide you zero protection from motorists that drive around without insurance or with the inadequate state minimum insurance. I recommend limits of $250,000 per injured person, $500,000 per accident and $100,000 for property damage with an endorsement to protect you from uninsured and underinsured motorists. You can also get a discount by packaging these policies together with your homeowner’s policy. Let me know if you have any further questions about this and drive safely.

Grammar Guy

Relive the past in the historical present Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question: After the “myself” issue – how about “her and me” or “him and I?” And as another issue, why on earth do sportscasters refer to past events in the present tense? – Nancy Blackwell Answer: Since there are football games going on all around me as I try to write this column, I think I’ll tackle your second question today, Nancy. The rhetorical tense you’re referring to is called historical present, or dramatic present. It is used, as you’ve pointed out, to narrate events which have already happened as though they are ongoing. Journalists use this technique quite frequently when writing headlines: “House burns out of control” versus “House burned out of control.” The historical present tense gives the headline a greater sense of being immediate, “breaking” news, even though the event may have happened the day before. The historical present tense is used frequently in accounts of history in an attempt to place the reader or audience “in the action,” so to speak. Ken Burns’ fantastic documentary on the Civil War uses the historical present to wonderful effect. “If Robert E. Lee loses the siege of Petersburg,” Burns’ narrator might say, “the South has all but lost the war.” Although the events being described happened more than 150 years ago, the historical present tense allows Burns to

{ S E C O N D C I T Y. C O M }

maintain the sense of drama for his audience which actual observers of the conflict would have felt. Sportscasters, I imagine, use the historical present for much the same effect (Although I have heard speculation that they employ it out of laziness, as using past tense would often require a too-hefty mouthful of words.) Being a Butler grad, I’ll offer you an example from the university’s first try at the NCAA basketball championship against Duke University. As the clock ran down, Butler University sophomore Gordon Hayward took a half-court shot which would have won the game for his team. This is the clip ESPN plays during every Butler basketball game anymore. Here is what the sportscaster says: “If Hayward makes the shot, the Bulldogs win their first NCAA championship. If not, they go home to Indianapolis as runners-up.” Of course, the shot was off by some ridiculously minute degree – and we had to suffer another championship to Duke – but the historical present tense allows us to relive that heart-stopping moment as the ball pinged off the backboard over and over again. And over and over and over again, thanks to ESPN.

New year, newly organized space Commentary by David Decker

A new year has begun, and it’s the perfect time to start fresh and get rid of all the junk that’s cluttering up your life – and your home. Simplify your life by getting organized with the help of some well-designed products and innovative storage solutions. Take a look at a few of these creative ideas and little enhancements. Because it’s often the hub of a home, the kitchen is notorious for becoming messy and disorderly. The easiest way to keep unnecessary items from cluttering up your kitchen is to ensure that everything has a designated spot. Consider replacing some of the cabinet shelves with pull out drawers or trays. Drawers often have a larger surface area for storage, and you’ll also be able to reach items at the back of the cabinet with greater ease. For added organization, you can install the same rolling trays or drawers in the pantry. You can group similar foods in the pantry together for easy access. You can even designate each member of the family a shelf so everyone knows where their favorite foods are. If you aren’t looking to change your cabinets or pantry, there are also a number of small ways you can maximize kitchen organization. Store dishes, baking supplies or linens in a little armoire in the kitchen. A basic pegboard can be

room in the house: the bathroom. Keeping everything organized in the bathroom can be a difficult task. Well-designed built-in storage or shelving are great for storing towels, soaps and other products. Try to install storage in overlooked places such as walls, corners or the back of the door. If you are faced with limited space, you could use small baskets or hooks to organize toiletries instead of shelves. All you need is a little creative thinking to get around those pesky storage capacity problems. No matter which room you choose to tackle, getting organized is a great way to begin the year off on the right note. Take the opportunity to start fresh and enjoy the possibilities on the horizon. Happy 2013! Let’s make this year a great one.
