Super Bowl Founded Jan. 25, 2011, at Fishers, IN Vol. II, No. 1 Copyright 2011. Current Publishing, LLC All Rights Reserved. 1 South Range Line Road, Suite 220 Carmel, IN 46032

317.489.4444 Managing Editor – Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com / 489.4444 ext. 204 Associate Editor – Terry Anker terry@currentincarmel.com Art Director – Zachary Ross zach@youarecurrent.com / 489.4444 Associate Artist – Andrea Nickas andrea@youarecurrent.com / 489.4444

OUR VIEWS

It is our position as the Super Bowl comes to town, so do a great number of people who are not used to our roundabout system. Expect a week full of cars stopped at the entrances and in the middle of our roundabouts. While we can’t know now what the week leading up to the big game will be like, we can guess, based on other cities’ experiences, everything is going to be hectic. This most likely will include the roads, and specifically, the roundabouts. We love the efficiency and safety of our roundabouts, but there is the problem they are foreign to many outside of Hamilton County and can cause confusion. Our best advice is to be patient and be ready for the unexpected when it comes to entering a roundabout. As Feb. 5 nears, Hamilton County is going to get a little chaotic with out-of-towners looking to enjoy all the different events our community will offer. We’ve been working for years in preparation of the crowds staying in Hamilton County hotels and eating in our restaurants. Now it’s time for Hamilton County to charm our visitors. Step one includes making sure they feel safe in our roundabouts.

Political negatives

It is our position the “buyer-beware” tactic has taken over when it comes to negative political advertising. There is an oncoming tsunami of political attack ads this presidential election year. A survey commissioned by the Project on Campaign Conduct found voters dislike negative advertising. Why, then, is it increasingly used in political campaigns? The short answer is, though voters dislike them, they work. In comparative commercial advertising, the message must be true. The standards are much looser in political advertising. The truth is often skewed or distorted to achieve desired results. Perhaps, the best tactic is to not believe everything you hear. Web sites, such as FactCheck.org and Project VoteSmart.com, allow voters to sift through the spin and provide information regarding candidate’s voting records, issue positions, biographies, public statements, etc. Daily political media slugfests suppress voter turnout. Instead of staying home on Election Day, perhaps a better response would be to utilize the power of the vote. Vote for the candidate who runs a positive campaign and doesn’t try to mislead the voter.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Hungry for news? The feed will become endless This newspaper thing is a lot of fun for us, and we have been at it for nearly a combined 68 years. On paper, we get 52 chances a year to give you the news and information you desire. It’s an opportunity and a responsibility we take seriously. But the days of copy paper and carbon paper on the barrels of manual typewriters long ago gave way to computers. For years, it has been all about technology. (Stay with us; there’ll be a point made soon.) The Internet – thank you, Al Gore – presents us with chances to give you what you need NOW. To that end, the Center for the Performing Arts quietly posted its financial audit and internal review last week, and Christian Sorrell, our new online/social media coordinator, went into “Tasmanian Devil” mode. In no time at all, he had the Center’s reports posted to our Web sites, Facebook accounts and Twitter sites. Traffic increased again, as it has since Christian came aboard the week before last. We got the news out well in advance of all other Central Indiana media outlets. That’s a special moment in our business, being first. Until the two of us began to take this whole Internet thing ultra-seriously, it was standard

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg operating procedure to simply wait for the next edition. The late, great Vince Lombardi, he of Green Bay Packers coaching fame, once said, “To do the same thing repeatedly and expect a different result is the definition of insanity.” Were it not for our decision to bring Christian aboard, we were closing in on a rubber room for two. Old dogs learning new tricks, the two of us. See? It can be done, and sometimes in the nick of time. So, as Christian would tell you, watch our Web, Facebook and Twitter sites (each paper has its own; start at www.youarecurrent.com), because we aim to feed. Early and often.

A year gone by already By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com I can’t believe it’s been a year already but, indeed, Current in Fishers turns one year old tomorrow. Truly the time has flown by. When we launched the paper Jan. 25, 2011, we had all the giddy, nauseating nervousness of the first day at a new school. Would people read us? Did Fishers want a local newspaper? Would we get a seat at the cool kids’ lunch table, or be relegated to the one in back with the wobbly seats? It was all very nerve-racking. From day one, however, we’ve had no shortage of things to report. Fishers is as vibrant and active a community as anyone could hope to write about. In fact, I’m practically slamming the suitcase shut every week to try to get everything in – figuratively, of course. We’re not luggage. We’re a newspaper. Current in Fishers: Year One was all about getting to know the community, taking in a bird’s-eye view of the issues facing Fishers and an editor’s column prone to philosophizing about geese. Current in Fishers: Year Two promises to be a

Missing babies

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson When my husband underwent a vasectomy almost eight years ago, there was no question in our minds that choosing permanent birth control was the right choice. I did, however, take our newborn daughter to the appointment, afraid one of us might need the not-so-gentle reminder of a screaming infant to hold us steadfast to our decision. Having just hit the big 4-0 last week, I’ve begun to feel a few twinges of regret. Not surprising, I suppose. I’m nearing the end of my child-bearing years and probably only have a few good eggs left. After those are gone, there’ll be no chance of me ever reproducing again. I must confess, accepting the fact that I’ll soon be too old to have babies is more difficult than I anticipated. And making my graceful embrace of perimenopause even harder is the fact that close friends of ours just had a baby. (Close friends who, I must note, are only a year younger than we.) While visiting them in the hospital, I actually found myself calculating the odds of my whisking the infant away before the alarms could rouse a taser-armed security guard. The odds were not overwhelming, so I took a moment to simply enjoy rocking her in my arms and to briefly contemplate doing it all again.

I think a part of me was envious. I miss the excitement that comes along with a new life. I miss the possibilities a new life presents. I miss the pure joy of creating a miracle. And, if I’m totally honest with myself, I miss the attention that expecting and new moms receive. Admittedly petty, but true. Thank God I have a sister who is pregnant with identical twins. She reminds me on a daily basis why I’m thrilled to be in the next stage of my life. Her first trimester, all-day sickness has given way to severe varicose veins, emotional distress over high-risk multiples and the frightening realization she still has four more months of weight gain, stretch marks and hernias. Then, it’s years of sleepless nights, breastfeeding horrors and diaper debacles. No. Thank. You. Not at 40. So I guess the lesson learned here is this: We make the best decisions we can based on where we are in life; second guessing yourself only leads to possible incarceration. Yes, I’m growing older, but I’m also growing wiser and more confident. Besides, I like the idea of grandbabies I can return to parents. Peace out.

BBC taps Orusa to talk about cruise disaster By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com Fishers Fire Chief Steven Orusa was asked by BBC London and Fox News this week to offer his expertise as a rescue diver on the Costa Concordia cruise ship wreck. Orusa Orusa is the director of the International Association of Dive Rescue Specialists Response Team, and a published author on the subject of emergency water rescue, including the book “Dive Rescue Specialist: Operational Training for Public Safety Divers” (2007). On Jan. 13, the $570 million Costa Concordia cruise ship ran aground and partially sank off the western coast of Italy. As of Jan. 17, the Italian Coast Guard reported casualties at six dead and 29 missing of the more than 4,200 passengers and crew onboard, as reported by CNN International. The ship is owned by a British-American subsidiary of Carnival Cruise Lines. “There are so many challenges for divers,” Orusa said, “entanglements, contamination in the water, weather … zero visibility. People think the water is dark. It’s not dark. It’s dirty.

You’ve got brackish water, debris, fuel … everything that was in that ship is in the water.” Orusa has been a diver for the IADRS since 1990, and response team director since 2006. “The mission of the response team is … if a family or a port authority has exhausted all of their resources to recover a victim lost in a water accident, we help them,” Orusa said. “We bring a level of expertise that many organizations don’t have.” The IADRS is a non-profit organization funded by donations and private partnerships, which allow rescuers to operate all around the world. Orusa has been part of dive operations ranging from Ecuador to Afghanistan to Alaska, he said. With danger from weather and the instability of the Costa Concordia in its current position – aground only for now atop rocks in shallow water – Orusa said the unfortunate truth is the bodies of many passengers may not be recovered until the cruise ship is freed. “There are two distinct modes of operation,” he said. “There’s rescue mode, where you’re willing to risk the life of a diver to save a life. That’s usually the first 60-80 minutes. Then there’s recovery mode. The risks you’re willing to take then are different.”

My new twist on an old ritual: the New Year’s resolution COMMENTARY By Joan Isaac Every year, my family adopts a family through United Way’s United Christmas Service. This year in particular, that experience had a profound impact on me. We were matched with Michelle*, a single mom of three kids. The family lives in Strawtown, 13 miles north of Fishers, in a dilapidated 600-square-foot trailer.  At first, my conversation with Michelle was awkward. However, as we continued chatting, I felt a connection with her. We are both moms trying to do our best to raise our kids. Michelle had her first child when she was 18, and she is now studying at night to complete her degree. It is clear Michelle puts her kids before herself. She cleans homes for a living, and she had just two items on her wish list: a pair of tennis shoes and onesies for her grandson. Michelle’s oldest daughter just had a baby, dropped out of school and, unfortunately, appears to be following Michelle’s path, with little education and limited prospects for earning a living wage. I walked out the door wondering how else we could help. Telling my husband, Derek, of my experience with Michelle, I suggested we invite Michelle and her children to our Christmas dinner.

“Joan, you can’t save everyone,” responded my husband. I had to admit, he was right. So what could I do? Typically, we focus our resolutions to make ourselves healthier, wealthier and wiser. What if my resolution were to take a slight twist and focus on helping a neighbor instead?  United Way of Central Indiana just launched the “Read. Tutor. Mentor.” program to engage 5,000 new volunteers through a local coalition of partners focused on education. It is part of a national challenge by United Way Worldwide to mobilize one million caring adults to be education volunteers over the next three years, and cut in half the number of high school dropouts by 2018.    My New Year’s resolution is to commit to “Read. Tutor. Mentor.” to prevent situations like Michelle’s from repeating from one generation to the next. If you haven’t settled on your own New Year’s resolutions yet, please join me to help a neighbor become healthier, wealthier and wiser by volunteering for “Read. Tutor. Mentor.” For more information, please visit: www. uwci.org/million or call 925-7323. * The family’s name has been changed to protect their privacy.

Lifetone fire alarms still available from FFD By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com The Fishers Fire Dept. still has a limited number of Lifetone HL bedside fire alarms available for Fishers residents who are hard of hearing. These devices “listen” for the sound of a normal smoke alarm. When they “hear” a smoke alarm sounding, they activate a bed shaker and a loud, low-pitched audible alarm. These units give an added layer of protection for people who are deaf or have hearing loss.

In June, the FFD received a $5,100 grant from the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company to purchase 75 smoke alarms, to be presented to needy residents at no cost. The grant is part of a nationwide philanthropic program funded by the company. As part of the program, Fireman’s Fund employees were able to nominate a fire department for a grant. The FFD was nominated by Fishers resident Jim Bradley. For more information about the program, or to apply to receive a Lifetone HL bedside fire alarm, visit www.fishers.in.us/fire or call 595-3200.

St.Vincent Health named one of 15 best in nation By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com Indianapolis-based St.Vincent Health was named Tuesday as one of the 15 best health systems in the nation by the Thomson Reuters 15 Top Health Systems study. The study aggregates individual hospital performance into system-level date, using key performance measures including patient mortality and complications, patient safety errors and adherence to industry-recommended standards of care. St.Vincent Health was the only Indiana hospital system recognized in the “large health system” group, and one of two in total along with Mishawaka-based Saint Joseph Regional Health System. The 20-hospital system holds more than 16,000 associates in 47 counties in central and southern Indiana, including three Hamilton County locations: St.Vincent Carmel, St. Vincent Heart Center of Indiana and St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast in Fishers.

revisits some of the biggest and most interesting stories of our first year By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com

Our Future: City or Town? – Jan. 25

The very first edition of the Current in Fishers asked a simple question: Will Fishers remain a town, or become a city? A year later, the question remains unanswered, and will likely be the most important one the town poses to itself in 2012, with a referendum scheduled for November’s general election to do just that. Residents will have three options. First, Fishers could simply remain a town, to be governed as it is now with an elected town council, clerk-treasurer and an appointed town manager. Second, Fishers could become a first- or second-class city like neighbors Carmel and Noblesville. Fishers would then operate as a standard Indiana city: a city council, clerk-treasurer and mayor elected independently of one another. The third option for residents is to adopt a plan of reorganization adopted by the town council and Fall Creek Township Advisory Board in December 2010. That plan would create a “hybrid city,” governed by a city council elected at-large and a mayor appointed from the council. The fate of that option is in question, however, as the Fall Creek Township Advisory Board voted in late July 2011 to rescind its portion of the merger agreement in a 2-1 decision pitting board members Doug Allman and Renee Cox (now a member of the Fishers Town Council) against Dan Rieke, who maintained his support for the merger, which he voted for as part of the board in 2010. The Indiana Supreme Court has also agreed to hear a certified question on the matter stemming from a lawsuit filed in late 2010 by Fishers residents Joe Weingarten, Mike Kole and Glenn Brown. The lawsuit alleges the Fishers Town Council is violating voters’ constitutional rights to representation by a directly-elected mayor. Arguments on the issue will be presented at 9 a.m. Thursday before the Indiana Supreme Court at the Indiana Statehouse, 200 W. Washington St.

The Booming North – April 12

The pace of development on Fishers’ north side hasn’t slowed since April, when Current reported on the intense attention the area was getting from town staff and officials. The Oct. 3 groundbreaking of an 110,000-square-foot expansion to St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast, to be renamed St.Vincent Fishers Hospital, proved to be the start for a booming season along the northern part of the I-69 corridor. IU Health officially opened the first stage of its Saxony medical campus Dec. 1, when the $269 million, 200,000-square-foot IU Health Saxony Hospital came online. The hospital celebrated its first baby of the new year, George Ellsworth Orion Meyer – born to parents Nathan and Catherine Meyer – on Jan. 3. Last week, the Fishers Town Council approved a plan for an

www.youarecurrent.com

ambitious, 1,100-acre “Medical Technology Corridor” along I-69 and 136th Street. More than two years in the making, the plan calls for a series of residential and high-density commercial zones to be developed in the area. Town Council member David George said he believes the plan is the first step in Fishers taking the lead in developing the area, saying the town will need to be “proactive” in attracting new businesses in what he characterized as a “soft” economy. Full details about the Medical Technology Corridor are available online through the development department portal of the town’s Web site, www.fishers.in.us.

On the Way to Full Day K? – May 31

In April 2011, Gov. Mitch Daniels announced plans to allocate $150 million of a projected $640 million increase in tax revenues during the next two years toward K-12 education. Chief on his to-do list was funding full-day kindergarten. The timing of Daniels’ announcement meant Hamilton Southeastern School District administrators, faculty and board members had just more than a month to decide whether to take advantage of the funding – a proposition which would require additional staff and space in an already-crowded district. Ultimately, the district decided to move forward with full-day kindergarten, opening up 660 spots filled through a lottery. HSE Supt. Dr. Brian Smith said he expects the number to increase even more in the 2012-2013 school year, as the district will no longer be limiting the number of students it will accept. “Last year, if we had accommodated everyone that applied, we’d have had 750 students,” Smith said, “so I’m looking for somewhere in the neighborhood of 800. Typically, data across the state has shown when it’s open to everyone, it’s not uncommon for 65-70 percent of eligible students to opt for full-day kindergarten.” Of the 12 elementary schools in the HSE district, eight had a waiting list for full-day kindergarten in 2011. To accommodate the extra students, Smith said the district will be adding two more portable classrooms. While the district won’t receive its first set of data on the program’s effectiveness until the kindergarten “roundup” in February, Smith said he expects it will prove to be a positive move. “I think when students are focused on academics all day, there certainly is more time to focus on standards and fundamentals,” Smith said. “The biggest question is, what are we going to see two to three years out from that? Is that going to level, or are those kids going to still be ahead of the kids who didn’t take full-day kindergarten?”

Pulling Back the Curtain – Aug. 16

The abrupt resignation of the Center for the Performing Arts’ CEO Steven Libman in July left many wondering about the fate of the $150 million center. A special report printed by Current in August illuminated some of the reasons for Libman’s departure, but questions about his stewardship of the center, and its financial position, remained. At least some of those questions were addressed last week following the release of an internal review and regular audit of the facility. The three-page review, signed by board chairman Rollin Dick, criticized a number of operations and reporting procedures

Current in Fishers

at the center – chiefly among them unexplained travel, unapproved expenses and overpaying for performers. The review details how an unnamed female employee traveled with the former CEO, yet “documentation to support the validity and/or appropriateness of that employee’s travel expenses” is not available. This information was typically provided for other employees who traveled with the CEO, the report says. The review also says a process requiring employees to support expenses charged to the Center was “inefficient and not always supported.” New policies require the CEO to approve every expense, Basile said, with the chair of the Center’s finance committee overseeing the CEO’s spending. Single expenditures of more than $50,000 now require the board’s approval, he said. A contract committing to spend about $700,000 for a nationally televised PBS program was finalized without the board’s approval, the review said, adding, “It now appears this project will result in a net loss to the Center of about $400,000.” Finally, under the former CEO, scheduling of performances and contract negotiations was done by one individual and were not subject to review, the report says. “Our review did not find evidence of appropriate consideration of the economic viability of performances,” the review says. “Our review of contracts with several performers indicated that losses were inevitable on their performances … There was also indication that the Center paid more for some performers than was necessary.” The full audit and internal review are available online at http:// www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

In his own words – Nov. 1

The ongoing saga of embattled Secretary of State Charlie White has played out on two stages. The first is a very real criminal investigation charging the state’s top elections official with seven felony counts, among them voter fraud. The second is political, pitting Republicans – lead by calls from Gov. Mitch Daniels for White to resign – against Democrats in a battle to control White’s replacement should he be found ineligible for office. The Indiana Recount Commission, responding to a September 2010 complaint by Democrats alleging the White knowingly registered in the wrong precinct, voted unanimously in June to allow White to retain his position. In December, Marion Circuit Court Judge Louis Rosenberg overturned the commission’s decision, ruling White was ineligible for his office. A request for a stay on the ruling by Attorney General Greg Zoeller, who appealed the decision, was granted by Rosenberg. Zoeller has asked the Indiana Supreme Court to rule on White’s eligibility for office. There is no indication yet whether the court will hear Zoeller’s appeal. White would still lose his position as secretary of state if found guilty of any of the seven felony counts charged against him. In that case, his Democratic opponent, Vop Osili, would replace him. White’s trial is scheduled for Monday.

Yi and Uhrick honored as heroes By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com Ten-year-old Sarah Yi was honored for her bravery under fire last week with a “Hero Award,” presented by the Fishers Fire Dept. and Fishers Town Council. Yi was honored alongside Hamilton County dispatcher Larkin Uhrick, who lead Yi through one of the most trying situations of her young life as she took the phone and provided information to emergency personnel during a Dec. 19 family emergency. “She was very calm,” said FFD Capt. Ron Lipps. “Every firefighter who heard the call was impressed by her demeanor and how well she was able to provide literally life-saving care.”

Firefighters, police ensure safety of child passengers By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com Fishers resident Amy Hulse took advantage of the car seat installation program offered by the Fishers Fire and Police Depts. last week to ensure her child was properly fastened. Hulse, accompanied by parentsin-law Bill and Patty Hulse, went through a thorough training and installation lesson by Fishers firefighter Don Graber.

“Auto manufacturers don’t design cars with babies in mind,” said FFD Capt. Ron Lipps. “It’s kind of an afterthought.” The Child Passenger Safety Program is offered by certified members of both the Fishers Fire and Police Depts.

Bells will be ringing

EDUCATION By Freedom Kolb The jingle bells may have just been put away, but come the end of January, the Fishers community can expect to hear a different sort of ringing – telephones. Jan. 24 – Feb. 9 marks the 21st annual Dollars for Scholars campaign, one of the oldest and largest scholarship programs in the Hamilton Southeastern School district. Housed in the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation since 2003, Dollars for Scholars provides scholarships to 125 collegebound seniors at both Hamilton Southeastern and Fishers High Schools. The fundraiser, hosted in space donated by FORUM Credit Union, follows a telethon format with seniors calling upon area residents and businesses for support. In today’s economy, financial assistance to both individuals and schools is more important than ever. The collaboration between the Foundation and the Dollars for Scholars campaign has granted more than $928,000 in individual scholarships in the past two decades. The Foundation has also invested more than $255,000 in school and classroom grants during the past 10 years. However, according to past participants, the program offers much more than financial incentives. Michael Roederer, a 2011 Fishers High School graduate and Dollars for Scholars participant reflects, “This program gave me the

10 | January 24, 2012

chance to not only earn scholarship money, it allowed me to form life-long relationships with outstanding students, parents and leaders in our community. Put simply, it was a great way to get involved in the school district and community.” Roederer’s scholarship trailed with him to Indiana University where he is studying biology and actively involved in student government. Kevin Ephlin, HSSF board member and chair of the Dollars for Scholars committee, is also enthusiastic about the 2012 event. He comments, “It is always exciting to see the community rally together to support the education of our local students. This event has such an incredible legacy – the first recipients graduated in 1991 and now have their own children enrolled in HSE schools. What a great way to be part of that history while at the same time investing in the future of our seniors!” Please join HSSF in pledging your support for local seniors this New Year!

DISPATCHES » More price hikes to come? – If you’ve been pondering plane tickets for a spring break or summer trip, it’s time to put those thoughts to action. Last week Delta Air Lines initiated a fare hike of $4 to $10 across the bulk of its U.S. route system. “This comes right on the heels of Delta initiating a $20 fare hike on long-haul flights and JetBlue doing a shorter-haul hike last week,” said FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney. “It looks like we’re tracking almost like last year, which was basically ‘Let’s get a bunch of fare hikes in early’.” -www.travelkit.msnbc.com » Asian garden pest – The Asian longhorned beetle has recently been attacking trees in the U.S. The larvae girdle tree stems and branches, which can lead to dieback in the crown, possibly even killing the tree. This import has long been killing hardwood trees in China. Here in the U.S., the beetle prefers box elder, Norway, red, silver, sugar and sycamore maples, among other trees. The only way to eliminate these beetles seems to be removal and burning of the infested trees. Infested areas must be quarantined. -www.almanac.com

Now they do it to create new flavors. The Miami Herald “highly recommends” one such blend, the 2010 Big House Red from California-based Big House Winery. The wine is an out-of-control blend of petite sirah, tempranillo, syrah, Grenache, malbec, mourvedre, nebbiolo, tannat, souzao, aglianico, barbera, zinfandel, petite verdot, cabernet franc, charbono, nero d’Avola, sangiovese, sagrantino and other esoteric reds, the paper says.

DISPATCHES » Satisfaction not guaranteed – Only 21 percent of customers who bring complaints to customer service end up satisfied, according to a recent study by Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Another study, by consulting firm Accenture, found customer satisfaction with service has declined across the board, from the amount of time it takes to resolve a problem to the politeness of reps. That’s because customer service is often designed as “a kind of firewall against the customer,” says Emily Yellin, author of “Your Call Is (Not That) Important to Us.” -www.smartmoney.com » Burger King to your door? – Burger King, trying to regain its place as the nation’s second largest fast-food chain, is trying out home delivery in an effort to boost sales. This fall the Miami-based chain started testing delivery at four restaurants in the Washington, D.C., area. The company says it will expand the test to 16 more locations by this week before deciding whether to make it a large-scale effort. According to the company Web site, deliveries cost $2, and there is a minimum order of $8 to $10, depending on the market. -www.cbsnews.com

» Overlooked tax deduction – Generally, you can only deduct mortgage or studentloan interest if you are legally required to repay the debt. But if parents pay back a child’s student loan, the IRS treats it as though the money was given to the child, who then paid the debt. So, a child who’s not claimed as a dependent can qualify to deduct up to $2,500 of student-loan interest paid by Mom and Dad. And he or she doesn’t have to itemize to use this deduction. The parents can’t claim the interest deduction, even though they actually foot the bill. -www.dailyfinance.com » IRS ups audits of millionaires – New IRS figures show 12 percent of millionaire earners were audited last year. That’s up from 8 percent in 2010 and 6 percent in 2009. For those making less than $200,000, the rate has stayed steady at approximately 1 percent in recent years. IRS officials said the growing audit rate for high earners is aimed at demonstrating that the tax code is being enforced fairly and is unrelated to President Barack Obama’s recent proposals to boost taxes on the rich. The White House and congressional Democrats are expected to continue taking similar populist stances with the approach of this November’s presidential and congressional elections. -Associated Press

Move the needle: The little things BUSINESS By CJ McClanahan I recently spent nearly 45 minutes one weekend at a local hobby store trying to convince my son that building a Pinewood Derby car would be fun. Along with a handful of other fathers, I wandered around the store aimlessly, desperately trying to find the right accessories for the car. The staff did everything possible to avoid us, ducking in and out of empty aisles. When I finally got someone’s attention, he was clearly irritated I interrupted his day. That weekend, my wife and I had dinner with some close friends. It was a unique restaurant where we ordered multiple courses. Every time we asked the waiter for help, he acted as though he had 10 tables too many and would get to us when he got the chance. It’s unlikely I will visit either of these places again. Do you remember the days when the cable and phone companies had no competition? You would wait on the phone forever to talk to a rude customer service representative. If a service visit was required, you were then given a six-toeight-hour time frame when they might be able to get to your home. As just about everything becomes a commodity, customer service is more important than ever. So, what makes great customer service? While it’s a little different for everyone, there are some basic fundamentals you should consider as you prepare to engage with your market. It always begins with the first impression.

www.youarecurrent.com

Some research suggests an individual makes this impression in less than two seconds, and once it’s made, it’s extremely difficult to change. When you engage with a prospect, make sure you smile (even over the phone – they can tell), thank them for the opportunity (gratitude goes a long way) and get clear about exactly what they expect (without being too pushy). If your customer has any issue with your product or service, always start with an apology. Over the holiday season, I was on the phone with a variety of service providers with a problem and only one provider (Verizon) started the conversation by apologizing for the fact I had to make the call. When the transaction is complete, deliver a genuine “Thank you for choosing us.” This is different from the canned “We know you have a choice in air transportation” you receive every time you land at your destination. This is heartfelt, and if appropriate, is even followed up with a handwritten note. As with most things in life, intellectually speaking, this is easy. All you need to do is choose to execute. Choose wisely.

DISPATCHES » St.V among top 15 – St.Vincent Health was identified in the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals: 15 Top Health Systems study as one of 15 best health systems in the nation. The faith-based health system is the only one in Indiana and the Midwest to be honored in the large health system group. The annual, quantitative study uses objective, independent research and public data sources and aggregates individual hospital performance into system-level data. » CDC: Binge drinking, STDs up – Binge drinking may be a bigger problem in the U.S. than previously thought and may contribute to a high prevalence of positive STD tests, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The report states that about 38 million American adults (or about one-sixth) binge drinks about four times each month. Binge drinking was defined as consuming four or more drinks for females and five or more for males within a short period of time. Aside from the more obvious consequences of binge drinking, the report points out that it has also been linked to a higher prevalence of positive STD tests. -www.privatemdlabs.com

» IU Health first to use 3-D –  IU Health Saxony Hospital is the first hospital in central Indiana and one of the first in the U.S. to offer 3-D breast tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening. Patients benefit from the system’s exceptionally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient comfort and a groundbreaking 3-D tomosynthesis platform designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance. » Mental decline could begin in 40s – A new study suggests that age-related cognitive changes—which may in some cases herald Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia—are under way as early as our mid-to-late 40s. Researchers in Europe tracked the mental function of more than 7,000 British civil servants for a decade, and they found even the youngest participants, who were between the ages of 45 and 49 at the outset, generally displayed slight yet measurable declines in short-term memory, mental reasoning and verbal facility over the course of the study. The declines were too small to be noticeable in everyday life, and were detected only through a battery of tests the researchers gave the participants every three to four years. -www.health.com

Facial aging and tummy tucks ANTI-AGING By Barry Eppley Q: Is the Lifestyle Lift effective and how long will it last? A: The Lifestyle Lift is just a franchise term for a limited facelift or a jowl tuck-up procedure. It is a scaled-down version of a more complete facelift or a neck-jowl lift. The more relevant question, however, is whether this type of facelift approach is right for you. The vast majority of unhappiness with Lifestyle Lifts, QuickLifts or any other form of “minifacelift” was because the patient wasn’t a good candidate. Their facial aging issues were more advanced and they should have had a fuller facelift to get the kind of result they were expecting. Understandably, patients are tempted to choose a facelift operation based on how it would be done (local or IV sedation), a short recovery and/or a low cost, rather than choosing a facelift operation that better fits their actual needs. This is the real issue you should be thinking about. Q: I am a 32-year-old woman who is in serious need of a tummy tuck. I have had three children, the last two by cesarean section. I have a large amount of lower stomach skin with a lot of stretch marks. It makes my belly button look odd and almost buried with the loose skin around it. If I get a tummy tuck, will the doctor be able use my C-section

scar? I need a tummy tuck so bad that if I had to have a new scar above the C-section scar, I could live with it. But I would like, if possible, to keep it low and just have a longer C-section scar. A: This is a common question and concern, one I think about when doing a tummy tuck in every woman with a C-section scar. I always want to use the C-section scar whenever possible for two reasons. The first is the one which concerns you, and that unsavory cosmetic issue of adding another scar to the one you already have. But a more important consideration, and the one I am most concerned with, is the survival of the skin between the two scars if the C-section scar could not be used as part of the tummy tuck. The intervening skin between these two scars may not have a good blood supply, and could either not heal well or actually die … which would obviously create a significant after-surgery complication. For this reason, every effort is made to use a C-section scar in a tummy tuck, and if you have as much loose skin as you describe, this would not be a problem to do so.

Room addition creates expanded laundry room REMODELING By Larry Greene Original laundry room: This home was built in 2006 in the Village of West Clay subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The current owners are the original owners and went through the new building process in 2006. Unfortunately, they were never happy with the laundry room, which was small and lacked functional space. Blending in with original home: The designer determined the best solution was to relocate the existing exterior heating, ventilating and air conditioning compressor unit to the opposite side of the house. This allowed free space for the new room addition. The design team created a room addition onto the side of the house, which added a modest amount of square footage and added tremendous functionality. According to the homeowner, “The designer listened to what we wanted and came up with a design that allowed for a lot of usable space. You would never know it was an addition, inside or outside. The space looks like it was built with the original house.”

Salvaging cabinets: The design team was able to salvage the existing cherry cabinets in the former laundry room. These salvaged cabinets were then combined with a few new cabinets to create a new expanded laundry room. New bathroom: The design also created a new half bathroom and kitchen pantry as part of the project. The new bathroom added a separate powder room for the rear part of the home. A new bank of tall pantry cabinets then provided much-needed storage off the kitchen.

Final result: The homeowner commented, “For my wife, having another refrigerator and a pantry are the favorite parts of the addition. For me, it is the functionality and that the new design opens up for the back of the house.”

If walls could talk

DESIGN By Sue Faulstich This time of year, a lot of us look around the place we call home and wish that with the snap of our fingers, every holiday decoration would magically be packed away. Taking down Christmas wreaths and putting away Mr. and Mrs. Claus can sometimes leave a homeowner thinking about those much needed homeimprovement projects we never quite seem to find the time for. Before we know it, another 12 months have passed and those projects remain incomplete. Well, if one of your resolutions for 2012 is to refresh the colors of your home, fear not – I am here to help.   Since it is impossible to be clever while writing about paint, I hope to keep your attention by giving only the most pertinent information regarding this subject. All joking aside, as paint manufacturers keep adding more and more products to sort through, it will be beneficial to know the basic finishes when having a conversation with a paint store clerk. The success of every paint job hinges on knowledge, preparation and a fair share of elbow grease. The following facts and opinions refer to interior latex paint: • Matte – Often referred to as ‘flat,’ a matte paint finish does not reflect any light, but rather absorbs it. While this finish does make it easy to hide imperfections, in my

www.youarecurrent.com

opinion, it makes a wall seem dull and lifeless. These same qualities, however, make it the perfect choice for almost every ceiling. Eggshell – Literally named for its resemblance to the sheen of an eggshell, the slight shimmer of this finish is a good choice for imperfect walls. It will hide blemishes like a matte finish will, yet it is washable. Satin – Slightly more glossy than an eggshell finish, a satin finish is often advertised as being ‘scrubbable.’ Usually, the higher the gloss of a paint finish, the more durable it will be. Satin is a perfect choice for the walls of high-traffic areas in a home. Semi-gloss – This finish is my first choice for cabinets, doors and trim. Rarely would I recommend anything else for these interior items. Be aware, DIYers – the shinier the surface, the more evident a flaw in the surface will appear. High-gloss – Commonly used for furniture, this shiny finish takes on an almost reflective quality. High-gloss finishes have a very dramatic look and are popular in contemporary interior settings.

Frisky business for film LAUGHS By Dick Wolfsie Mary Ellen and I had our tickets and we were ready for a little rest and relaxation. After a busy holiday season, this couldn’t have come at a better time. We parked the car, made our way to the counter and confirmed our reservations. First, we endured the necessary security checks. An agent did a wand sweep to be sure there was nothing prohibited on us. I emptied my pockets and Mary Ellen’s purse was checked. We walked down the aisle and found our seats. An announcement was made for all cell phones to be turned off. “This is kind of weird, isn’t it?” Mary Ellen asked. “All this to see a movie premiere at the mall?” So what was the concern? We were attending an exclusive showing of “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” about 18 hours before the rest of the world would be able to view it, so the movie execs didn’t want patrons in the audience recording any portion of the film. As a result, all videotaping devices were prohibited, but grandma could tote her knitting needles, and Dad could bring his hacksaw. So what if Mom was packing a small handgun? A cannon was permitted that night, but not a Canon. Because of being frisked at the theater entrance, I had trouble concentrating during the film. The storyline spelled trouble for me from

the very beginning: disguises, flashbacks, flashforwards and a sprinkling of subtitles. Before we left the house that evening, I read a plot synopsis online, just to give me a head start. It didn’t help. The review said it was a mystery, wrapped in a mystery, inside a mystery, which would mean I would feel like a pretzel, tied up in a knot, inside a blender. From research, I knew what a tinker was. But there wasn’t one tinker in the entire movie. Come to think of it, not a tailor or a soldier, either, although spies were coming out of the woodwork. At the end of the picture, someone tries to kill Colin Firth. I had no idea why, unless maybe they saw him in “Mamma Mia!” As we were leaving, I decided it was OK to question one of the agents who patted me down earlier, though I hated to bother him behind the counter while he was serving the buttered popcorn. He reconfirmed the producer’s concern that someone might record a few scenes and post them online. But this movie has little chance of going viral on YouTube. Not only were there no tinkers, there were no adorable kittens, either.
