Autistic boy receives unforgettable visit By Nancy Edwards • nancy@youarecurrent.com Most people take for granted that neighborhood streets are clean. A 12-year-old local boy with autism recently took time to thank the thank you Fishers Department of Public Works for all it does — yet never expecting that he would receive the gratitude he expressed tenfold. Dominic DeWald, who was born with fetal alcohol syndrome, received a visit from DPW employees just before Christmas — along with gifts and 40 cards from DPW employees humbled by Dominic’s selfless gesture. “When you consider the challenges that Dominic is faced with in life it was really touching for him to take time to let us know how much he appreciates the Department of Public Works and the work we perform around the community,” said Eric Pethtel, director of the Department of Public Works. “Dominic stated in his letter he wanted to hear back from us and there was no way we were going to ignore that request.” According to Rachel DeWald, Dominic’s mother, the

letter he wrote to the DPW is just one of many kind gestures that Dominic does every day. “He has the most amazing gift to love everyone,” Rachel said. “He just doesn’t even know how to hate anyone.” Rachel said that Dominic “touches people’s lives. He’s never not greeted someone who walks past. He has to say ‘Hi’ to every single person.” When employees from DPW showed up at Dominic’s home, he was overjoyed to discover the employees also brought 13 trucks for him to see. “I thought, There’s so many trucks! I liked the vacuum hose on the one that sucks up the sewage,” he said. Dominic also received a personalized street sign with his name on it, in addition to a job offer with the DPW when he graduates. “Dominic was overwhelmed with emotion,” Rachel said. “It wasn’t until he came in (the house) that he said, ‘I feel like crying. Can you cry because you’re happy?’” “I felt like my heart was going to burst,” Dominic said of the DPW visit. “I feel so happy that they did this for me.”

New scam Last year, con artists attempted to scam Hamilton County residents by calling and threatening arrest, claiming victims were delinquent in paying taxes. A new variation of this scam has popped up in Hamilton County with thieves now calling and threatening arrest because victims did not appear for jury duty. In an even more interesting twist, the callers may be using names of courthouse employees to lend credence to their calls. Read more at currentinfishers.com.

New Walmart aims to please public

By Nancy Edwards • nancy@youarecurrent.com Local consumers now have another option when choosing a place to shop 24 hours a day. The Walmart Neighbornow open hood Market in Fishers recently opened its doors to the public. The approximately 41,000 squarefoot store, 9354 Ambleside Drive, includes a full line of groceries and an assortment of general merchandise. In addition, the Walmart has a full pharmacy with a drive-up window. “We’re excited,” said Mekey McAllen, store manager. “I’m excited about the location. We’ve had lots and lots of great turnout and the customer feedback has been fantastic.” McAllen said her goal for Walmart is “to be a store of the community.” During the day, McAllen talks with the customers and attempts to find out what type of merchandise the public wants if the store does not carry it and orders what the customers requests. “It’s about making this a true store to the community; I’m listening to what (the customers) want on an item-to-item basis,” she said. “I’m open to all suggestions. We’re getting Morton Salt and more motorized wheelchairs. I want us to be that local spot that people want to shop.” The creation of local jobs is another advantage of having a Walmart nearby. So far 95 as-

sociates have been hired, and McAllen said the store is always accepting applications. “Being able to bring jobs to Fishers and have that availability has been rewarding,” McAllen said. “I love to hire and train associates to help customers with things that they need.” In addition to providing jobs, Walmart also is a store that gives back to its community. In 2012, the total cash and in-kind donations from stores, clubs and the Walmart Foundation in Indiana was $31.7 million, which was given to local organizations. “I love that our foundation gives us money to give back,” McAllen said.

Fishers becomes diverse

Commentary by Larry Lannan

When I moved to Fishers in 1991, it was my impression that the community’s population was not diverse. That began to government change dramatically around 2005. In 2014, Fishers is a much more diverse community that it once was. The Hamilton Southeastern School Corp. has reacted to this change by training a diversity coach for each school building. These coaches receive training from Ball State University and use that knowledge to train staff members in their own school buildings. Hamilton Southeastern School Board members received the same training given to the diversity coaches at the Jan. 23 board work session. Ball State Professors Patricia Clark and Eva Zygmunt started the process by separating board members and administrators into three groups: oldest child in the family, youngest child and middle children. Each group brainstormed how another group viewed the other. This exercise pointed out how we think we understand people who are not like us and shows how little we often know about each other. The professors pointed out academic research showing how stereotypes can affect expectations. For example, if the stereotype says boys are better at math and science, teachers may encourage boys more than girls to move into more advanced math and science classes.

The experts explained to the board that teachers say they want all their students to succeed, but stereotypes can unwittingly get in the way of enabling all students to reach their full potential academically. Studies show unconscious biases can affect academic achievement. Examples showed teachers connecting with their students’ families and communities to better understand them. Simply shopping and attending religious services in different communities can help teachers to better understand their students. Professors Clark and Zygmunt illustrated for the school board how adapting to a more diverse population requires an ongoing effort to connect with students. The school staff will be a key component in this work. It has always been my experience that diversity strengthens a community. I feel Fishers is a better place now than when I first arrived, because we are a more diverse community. The Hamilton Southeastern school system realizes it has work to do to strengthen its approach to diversity in Fishers. I commend the school board and administration for partnering with Ball State University to take strides toward connecting with a diverse student body.

For those of you keeping score at home, over the past 19 months, I have lost 80 pounds by eating better and exercising. plain talk It was not always the easiest road because deciding to get out of bed at 5 a.m. to work out is not my forte, but I do it on occasion. I am more of a midday or evening workout kind of gal, as I really appreciate sleep. I have managed to keep the weight off, but at the end of the summer in 2013, things got stagnant. I had hit the dreaded weight loss plateau. I had no idea how to plow through this desert. That was until Groupon brought Barre Bee Fit into my life. I had no idea what barre classes were, but I was willing to try something new to get things moving again. At my first class, I thought two things. First, what does “strong that body!” mean? Second, during the first set of repetitions, these incredibly small movements are not that challenging. After approximately 11 minutes of the class, I could answer the first question. I could feel how weak I was. I could also feel that this workout had an excellent chance to build my strength. About a hot second after my epiphany, I realized I might not be able to walk, or crawl, for at least three days. I was hooked. I almost cried,

mostly due to pain, but also because I found something to push me through my fitness plateau. The mix of the ballet barre with awesome choreography and outstanding classroom instructors created results that I could see within weeks of beginning. In short, I have never been stronger. The Barre Bee Fit program combines small isometric and lightweight strength training, cardiovascular conditioning, and feel-good stretching techniques. My favorite class adds in a heated room, which makes my Saturday mornings super sweaty and amazing! I now consider myself a Bee because I have never felt better or stronger. If you are looking for something to get you through the cold winter days (be sure to try the hot classes — but “bee” ready — it is warm!) and push you past your limits, head over to the Barre. I have taken a few friends, or new-Bees, and they are hooked, too. You will be challenged and you may find a renewed, stronger you. Who needs New Year’s resolutions anyway? It is always a perfect time to be good to yourself! Heather Kestian is a Fishers resident and mother. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in journalism, as well as a master’s degree in education. Her family moved to Fishers in 2010.

Chance circumstances save life Local women recognized for their heroic efforts

By Nancy Edwards • nancy@youarecurrent.com Two local residents have been recognized for their quick-thinking actions in helping to save the life of a man who nearcover story ly drowned in November. Amber Ross and Melissa Philhower received Good Samaritan awards from the Fishers Fire & Emergency Services in a recognition ceremony spearheaded by the Fishers Police Dept. Jan. 21 at Fishers Town Hall for rescuing Ron Perry, 56, an Anderson man who suffered a heart attack and nearly drowned in a pond near 126th Street and Hawks Landing Drive. The circumstances connecting the three on the morning of Nov. 12 are more than purely coincidental. Ross, an accountant, was on her way to work, yet she was running late, which, according to her, “never happens.” She noticed a car on 126th Street veering off the road. At first, she assumed that the driver was a teenager carelessly texting while driving and kept an eye on the car, which suddenly swerved across four lines and broke through a fence. Meanwhile, Philhower, driving to school early for a meeting, was traveling eastbound on 126th Street to Fall Creek Elementary School, where she is a second-grade teacher. She saw a car driving erratically bump onto a curb and, after glancing into her rearview mirror she observed the car sliding into a retention pond. Ross and Philhower stopped their cars just east of Hawk’s Landing Drive and immediately sprinted to Perry’s car, which was sinking into the nearly frozen pond. Philhower called 911 and Ross jumped into the water, frantically attempting to unlock the car doors. Two anonymous men in separate work trucks arrived at the scene just as Ross was wondering how to break the windows to rescue Perry. One

Amber Ross used her training as a medic in the Army National Guard to know how to try to save Perry’s life.

Friends & Family CPR course: Steve Davison, division chief of Fishers Fire Dept. emergency medical services said, “There is a direct correlation between bystander CPR and survivability of a cardiac arrest event.” It is estimated that every minute effective CPR is not performed decreases survivability by one percent, which is why the Fishers Fire Dept. is holding a Friends and Family CPR course for those ages 16 and older from 9 to 11 a.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 11 at Delaware Township Community Center, 9094 E. 131st St., Fishers. The class is free to participants who bring one canned or non-perishable food item for a local food bank. Participants must register by contacting Barb Hathaway at 595.3225 by Feb. 4. of them had a hammer and they began breaking the glass until Perry was free. Ross and one of the other men dragged Perry’s body to the bank of the pond. Ross, who was a medic in the Army National Guard, knew exactly what do next. “The first thing I did was check (Perry’s) airways and pulse,” Ross said. “After that, I checked to see if he had a medical ID; was he diabetic? There was no medical ID. I started calling his name; he wasn’t breathing, there was no pulse. I performed CPR and compressions right away.” Meanwhile, Philhower remained on the phone

with the 911 operator and reported what Ross was doing to help Perry, until the paramedics arrived just six minutes after the 911 call. Ross resuscitated Perry, who was immediately rushed to IU Saxony Hospital in Fishers and placed into a medically induced coma. He had surgery Nov. 21 to place a cardioverter defibrillator in his heart. Perry was released from the hospital two days later and is now home recuperating. “I am thankful and blessed,” Perry said of being rescued. “God put everyone in place to get me through this. I had a chance at life again.” Perry’s wife, Jamie, added, “Everyone who had

- Ron Perry

a part in saving his life went above and beyond what was necessary. We do like to make sure they are thanked,” she said. Jamie also referred to Ross, who stopped by to visit Perry each day he was in the hospital, as a “second family.” Ross, who lost her own father to cancer, has spent a lot of time with Perry’s family. She said she would do anything to get her dad back, and was glad she took part in bringing Perry back to life to be with his own family. “Knowing what I did to contribute, to see his family happy was worth more to me than the award,” she said. Ross has also become friends with Philhower, whose class wrote cards to Perry in the hospital. Fall Creek Elementary School regularly teaches lessons in character, and Principal Amy Jackson delivered a message after Perry’s rescue about helping society. “I think the accident did bring awareness to quite a few people,” Philhower said. “We talked about it and how even little things you do can help people.” Although Philhower considers her act of calling 911 a small feat, John Melling, captain of Fire & Emergency Services for the Fishers Fire Dept., disagrees. “These heroes were a very important link in the survivability chain,” he said. “If the victim had not been pulled from the icy water, if no one knew CPR or if 911 had not been contacted, this scene likely would have had a different outcome. “The Fishers Fire Dept. recognizes the heroic acts these four individuals completed,” he continued. “They saved a life. They stepped into a situation and made it better because of their own personal acts. All aspects of the emergency system worked just the way it should and as a community, we applaud their accomplishment. Their personal choices that day made a difference.”

Melissa Philhower is a second-grade teacher at Fall Creek Elementary. Her class sent cards and pictures to Ron Perry while he was in the hospital.

Development? Bring it on!

Celebrate a Valentine’s Day variety

Development in Fishers is approaching center stage, and we’re thrilled for it. The vibrancy of downtown might have received a boost Feb. 3, if the Fishers Town Council approved a plan for a mixed-use building and adjacent parking garage. We went to press late last week, so www.currentinfishers, and our Facebook and Twitter feeds will fill you in. We were hopeful of passage, because we view the development as responsible. There is purpose in the project, and when that is the case it should prove only good things for the citizenry. With Mayer Najem construction firm late last year announcing its plans to relocate to downtown and the apartment-and-retail project coming to the town’s center, this latest project should be icing on the cake. Talk about a kick-starter. The three projects will further the progress downtown has enjoyed thus far and will be crucial in the evolution of the economics of a town on the verge of becoming a city. ••• Now that the ominously frigid temperatures apparently are gone with the wind, we’d like to issue a heartfelt “well done” to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Dept., which, via Nixle (www. nixle.com), kept us abreast of every-changing weather conditions. Mark Bowen’s crew does a magnificent job using this service, and we believe you should take a look at it and make use of it. We’re fond of saying, “Weather happens” – and not only in winter. We rely on the feeds from Bowen’s office throughout the year. It’s a tremendous resource for anyone wishing to pay heed with respect to inclement weather, travel, general safety and protection. As Deputy Bryant Orem of the Patrol Division stated last week, “The yellow Travel Advisory for Hamilton County has been lifted and is no longer in effect. There are currently no advisories in the county. Wow!” Quite a ride it was. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC.

Wanna write us a letter? You can do it a couple ways. E-mailing it to info@ currentinfishers.com is the quickest and easiest. The old-fashioned way is to snail mail it to Current in Fishers, 30 S.

A happy medium Commentary by Terry Anker Folks who don’t claim English as their native tongue, are often heard to express frustration when learning our language of the many words that claim many meanings. A word can be a verb, noun or adjective. It can be defined by context, by mood or by regional dialect. Perhaps even more confusing, it can be demarcated in several mutually exclusive ways. The word “medium,” for example, is known to be both a unit of measure, a material and a person. It can be the size of drink between a small and a large – although I must admit that one rarely sees a small option on the menu at any American restaurant. We tend to stick with large and EXTRA large. Also, the word medium may be used as an expression of the material used in the construction of art. A mixed-medium piece would be constituted of several different substances used collectively to make the whole. And, don’t forget that a medium might be a person (one who fills the space between the spirit world, if we believe in these

kinds of things, and our corporal existence); or a medium might be used to express the job or role of someone who might fill this space between ghost and ghost-seeker. One doesn’t wonder at the confusion. Even as someone who can claim English the mothertongue, I find myself flummoxed by each generation’s fascination with taking a well-established word or phrase and redefining it in new and unexpected ways. As a case-in-point, it could be expected that the much-discussed gay marriage debate has little to do with allowing or disallowing gayety, once commonly defined as meaning a sense of happiness or joyfulness, in the institution. Indeed, it might not be a bad idea for legislatures to attempt to pass a law requiring this sort of gay marriage. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Magic-mom touch saves birthday Commentary by Danielle Wilson I recently celebrated a birthday. My mom came up for the occasion and took my daughters and me out for a whirlwind shopping humor spree that ended with the mother lode of all sales ($60 to $90 coats marked down to $5. FIVE DOLLARS!). That evening, we ordered pizza and heard her stories of being pregnant in the ‘70s, learning she was carrying twins two weeks prior to delivering (thanks to an honest-to-God X-ray, which might explain quite a few things about me!) and deciding what boy names she’d chosen for each of her five daughters. (Your favorite columnist could have been Mark.) But the best part of the day came at an unexpected moment. I was shoving clothes into my teenage son’s dresser so my mom could at least find the bed she’d be sleeping in when I slammed the drawer closed on my finger. The pain was so intense I almost vomited when I got to the kitchen sink, but Mom was at my side immediately. As I ran cold water over my hand, she began rubbing my back, comforting me with her words and presence. She kept telling me I would be OK, that it didn’t look that bad. She gave me ibuprofen and then prepared an ice pack. She instructed me to sit down and elevate my hand, all while keeping my kids away and distracting me with comments about our house and the

weather and how a younger sister, much like I do, goes bat-poo crazy at her fourth-grader’s basketball games. I didn’t realize it until later, but the best part of my birthday was that hour on the couch with my mom. Sure, my wounded finger had throbbed like nobody’s business, but I had someone taking care of me. I was allowed to just be a hurting child again and not worry about all the parental duties and responsibilities I was neglecting. Normally if I am indisposed due to illness or traumatic injury, the kids show sympathy for about two minutes, only until they need help with homework or finding their lunch boxes or whatever. And my husband, though amazing, just isn’t used to being a caregiver. If I go down for the count, Doo responds either like a deer in headlights, paralyzed by panic, or like a typical man, somewhat short on empathy. But moms are special. They have that magical touch of knowing exactly what to say and do to “make it all better.” And guess what? They never lose that touch, even when their babies are 40ish. So despite my nearly lopping off my finger, I enjoyed a wonderful birthday, thanks to my mom (and the $5 coats!). Peace out.

Quite a snow job! Commentary by Dick Wolfsie I do not have a snow blower. And I refuse to buy one. All my neighbors have snow blowers and it looks like they are having so humor much fun that I don’t know why they don’t just plow on over to my house and enjoy themselves. The coffee is always on. After the last storm, snow mounted at our front door, drifting to over three feet deep. A huge pile of the white stuff blocked the driveway entrance, the result of a private company plowing our cul-de-sac. I was a man just primed to be taken advantage of by some savvy kid who knew I was a senior citizen with a decent job, back problems and a cardiologist on retainer. I walked outside and scanned the neighborhood. A few of my more fit neighbors were hard at work, if you call pushing that snow blower “work.” But teenagers, shoveling snow? Not a one. Where were those big, manly 17-year-olds whose parents have bumper stickers that say, “My son is a lineman for Warren Central”? I’ll tell you where they were, they checked the Internet to be sure schools were closed, then turned over and went back to sleep. Doesn’t anyone want my five bucks? (Oh, it’s $40 now? See how long it’s been since anyone has come by?) I’ve had kids lined up on my front step for the past 15 years looking for free handouts at Halloween. They used to come out on a blustery Oct.

31 dressed like devils and pirates for a lousy Kit Kat. Now, they’re old enough to make an honest buck. Where are they? When I was a kid in New York, as soon as school was cancelled due to heavy snowfall, my best friend Arthur and I got into our warm coats, armed ourselves with shovels and set out in the neighborhood by 8 a.m. to make a financial killing. I remember one day coming home with a wad of scrunched-up wet bills in my pocket. I showed my mom the stash of $52. “That’s more than your father made today!” she said. She wasn’t kidding. I yearn for those days when I had the muscle and the heart (and the heart muscle) to shovel a driveway after a snowstorm. Now, I depend on young men and women who don’t want to make an extra buck and who instead are holed up in their rooms with a video game.Of course, it is possible a small band of young entrepreneurs did come by our house while my wife and I were huddled inside awaiting assistance. They saw the snow piled up at our front door and on the driveway. Maybe, they thought, no one lives here anymore.

‘Steel Magnolias’ – laughter through tears

By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com “I love you more than my luggage.” For a woman who has really good luggage, that’s saying a lot. But love is theatre what “Steel Magnolias” is all about. And when Clairee tells Ouiser that she loves her “more than her luggage,” what she’s really saying is that she would do anything in the world for a friend who is truly family to her. Many people remember “Steel Magnolias” as a marvelous, tear-jerking, heartwarming movie with a fabulous ensemble cast that included Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Shirley MacLaine and Daryl Hannah. But like many great movies it was based on a stage play, and the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre will present that play beginning Feb. 7. Robert Harling authored “Steel Magnolias” and based it on a very personal experience surrounding his sister’s death. The play opened in New York City in 1987 and was adapted for the screen in 1998. For those who have never seen the stage play (or spent an evening with a group of girlfriends crying into a bowl of popcorn), it centers on a

group of women in Louisiana: M’Lynn and her daughter, Shelby, who suffers from diabetes and a resulting chronic kidney condition; Truvy, who owns the hair salon where the women often spend their time; a grouchy widow named Ouiser; a cheery, well-to-do widow named Clairee; and a timid new employee named Annelle. The story takes the women through many of life’s landmark events, including weddings, divorces, births and, inevitably, death. But the crux of the play is the women’s steely resolve to pull each other through with love, laughter and optimism. Civic’s production stars Kathryn “Kat” Paton (Hendricks County) as M’Lynn and Emily Lantz (Noblesville) as her daughter, Shelby. June McCarty Clair (Carmel) plays Ouiser, Jean Childers Arnold (Indianapolis) plays Truvy, Pamela Kingsley (Westfield) plays Clairee and Casey Votaw (Indianapolis) plays Annelle. Civic audiences may recognize Lantz (as Shelby, the show’s tragic heroine) from ensemble roles in “Pippin,” “A Chorus Line” and “Guys and Dolls.” “I’m completely honored to have the opportunity to play this role,” Lantz said. “I remember watching the movie and really being moved by

Julia Roberts’ portrayal. Shelby goes through such a huge transformation in the show, from a girl who cares only about appearances to an amazing, strong woman who would literally give her life for her child.” “You know, plays come and go,” said Civic’s Artistic Director Bob Sorbera. “Of the 100,000 or more plays written over the years, so many of them have a shelf life. Cultures, styles and points of view change over the years. Just a handful of plays are truly timeless, and ‘Steel Magnolias’ is one of them. The characters are well-written, and the story - because it’s based on actual events - really rings true. I’ve had the pleasure of directing this play three times now, once before for Civic in 2003. It can be wildly hilarious and terribly sad, often in the same moment. It’s truly a beautiful play.” “Steel Magnolias” • Show times from Feb. 7 through Feb. 22 • Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre • The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel • Tickets start at $41.50; $31.50 for kids up to age 18 • For more information call 843-3800 or visit www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

Second City to deliver laughs

By Zach Manges • news@currentinfishers.com A belated winter gloom may be settling in, but luckily for residents, an opportunity for some good belly laughs to ease the woe is fast approaching. comedy Zionsville will play host to the nationally renowned comedy troupe The Second City at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 7, The comedy troop is making its fourth appearance in town on its new “Happily Ever Laughter” tour. “We definitely want to bring something fresh and new,” Cast Member Erin Lann said. “This running order specifically is fun because it has so much new material and some old favorites that haven’t been seen for a while. There will be lots of physical comedy that people can look forward to.” From its inception by Paul Sills, Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City has flouted the convention of stuffy theatre by appealing to all generations of viewers. The comedy group also sets itself apart from others of its kind through a format that includes a range of both scripted and improvisational sketches. Even the

prewritten sections of the show include some improvisation to keep the audience and the performers guessing. According to Lann, this benefits not only viewers, but the cast members as well. “The fact that we have improvisation in all our sketches is paramount. No one can anticipate or plan what will happen, so that’s a fun aspect to it,” Lann said. “It’s not like theatre plays where an actor just fills a role. Here it’s material they’ve created, so the chemistry is undeniable. Every actor has a poignant view and you just want to watch them (all).” “Improvisation keeps theatre extremely relevant and successful because you can see the show 20 nights in a row and each is still going to be unique,” Lann said. “You can’t explain what’s funny to someone. You just have to go see it for yourself.” Second City’s “Happily Ever Laughter” tour • 7:30 p.m. Feb. 7 • Zionsville Performing Arts Center • 1000 Mulberry St. in Zionsville • Tickets start at $17 • For more information call 873-3355 or visit pac.zcs.k12.in.us

PRESENTS

‘Cats’ pounces onto the B&B stage By Patricia Rettig • news@currentinfishers.com The seven-time Tony-Award-winning “Cats” pounces onto the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre stage as the first musical in its theatre 2014 season. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s playful production is the second-longest running show in Broadway history and will be presented from Feb. 6 through March 30 at Beef & Boards. “Cats” brings audiences into the poetry of T.S. Eliot, whose “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” inspired the musical about frolicking felines gathering for the Jellicle Ball. One by one, they introduce themselves in hopes of being selected by their leader, Old Deuteronomy, to be reborn into a new life with a journey to the Heavyside Layer. Featuring spectacular dancing, amazing makeup and colorful costumes, “Cats” is an unforgettable experience in the intimate atmosphere of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre – where they are close enough to touch. Not just on stage,

the frolicking creatures are in the aisle and all around, even overhead. Kenny Shepard of Fishers reprises his role of the narrator, Munkustrap, who he has played in both of Beef & Boards’ previous productions of “Cats.” Performing for the first time at Beef & Boards are J.S. McLaughlin as Old Deuteronomy and Eileen Faxas as Grizabella, who sings the show’s famous “Memory.” Buddy Reeder, who played the role of Mungojerrie in Beef & Boards’ debut production of “Cats” in 2004, directs the show and restages Marc Robin’s original award-winning choreography. Musical director is Terry Woods, with set design by Michael Layton. “Cats” by Andrew Lloyd Webber • Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre • 8 p.m. Feb. 6 through March 30; additional matinee and Sundays shows at alternate times • 9301 Michigan Road, Indianapolis • Tickets start at $38.50 and include a dinner buffet • For more information call 872-9664 or visit www. beefandboards.com.

The Valentine’s dilemma: Obligation or opportunity?

Commentary by Julie Osborne

Fragrant flowers, sparkling gems, shiny cards with expressions of love, chocolate everywhere, hearts galore ... it’s that time of year again, my favorite time (not!). I don’t know when or where it started, but Valentine’s Day at some point became my least favorite holiday. Maybe it happened gradually as my years of singleness increased along with the hoopla, which became just one more in-my-face reminder of my lonely, partnerless state. More

annoying were the giddy, romantic couples who appeared to surround me at every turn and made me feel inferior since the love in the air was not what I was breathing. I can’t pinpoint exactly when, but I grew to dread February, and it had nothing to do with the weather. Until one day when I found myself listening to my own words as I talked about the Hallmark holidays with my kids. The words poured out without my thinking: “I know it feels like an obligation but why not look at it as an opportunity to express your appreciation and love for some-

one?” I asked. Where did THAT come from? Wow, that was pretty good! It was even after Mother’s Day so it couldn’t have been premediated or some passive-agressive planting of seeds. It just spewed out of nowhere. Since then I have decided to embrace, rather than complain about, Valentine’s Day and the other holidays set aside throughout the year for seemingly commercial purposes ($14 billion for Valentine’s Day alone, by the way). I’ve decided to use this time to express my love and gratitude to family and friends. And, with my Christmas

Martyrs and matchmaking: How Valentine’s Day started It actually started with a person, Valentine or Valentinus, but can also be linked to a pagan celebration, Lupercalia, which involved slapping straps of goat hide onto women to increase their chances of fertility, and then later matching them up by a random draw with potential suitors. The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints with the name Valentine, one of whom was martyred on February 14. One legend tells the story of a third-century Roman priest under the reign of Emperor Claudius II. He decided that single men made better soldiers on the battlefield than homesick married men who were missing their families. As a result, Claudius outlawed marriage for young men, but Valentine stepped up couragelously against him and continued to marry couples secretly. When he discovered this, Claudius ordered

that Valentine be put to death. The legend continues with Valentine falling in love with the jailer’s daughter (some more conservative versions of the story say “healing the daughter”) and, on the day of his death, leaving a note behind for her signed, “From your Valentine.” From that legend, the celebration spread and, in the Middle Ages, became romanticized. The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem the Duke of Orleans wrote to his wife in 1415 while imprisoned in the Tower of London. In the 1840s, Valentine’s cards became more well-known and widespread by the “Mother of Valentine,” Esther Howland, who began designing and mass producing valentines in America. According to the Greeting Card Association, today an estimated one billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest cardsending holiday of the year behind Christmas (2.6 billion cards).

cards still heaped in a stack on the corner of my kitchen counter, it’s a perfect time to send an “early” valentine. May you also come to see Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to show someone your love. And, of course, it doesn’t hurt to pick up a dozen roses, too!

Flourishing Flowers: How to get the most of your bouquet Commentary by Brian Davies With one of the busiest floral holidays just around the corner, here are some proven tips

and tricks that will extend the life of your cut flower arrangement. Quality floral arrangements should last four to seven days or longer, depending on the flowers used and the care they receive from you, your florist and the farmer who grew them. Many cut flowers travel halfway around the world before even arriving to your local florist, so a trusted local florist is key. Hydration is Life! Fresh, clean water should be added daily to the vase or floral foam. We recommend changing the water completely every three days or before if the flower food solution becomes cloudy. If possible, re-cut stems by removing 1 to 2 inches with a sharp knife. Be sure to use a sharp knife or clippers that will not crush the stems. Immediately place the stems into the solution. You should never use softened or well water for fresh-cut flowers. Salt in any form is not a friend to

fresh flowers or plants and the minerals in well water will clog flower stems and stop them from drinking. Flower stems can be visualized as millions of little straws wrapped together – if they begin to clog or are pinched, the flowers will stop drinking, thus shortening their life. Hydrangeas are notorious for wilting even when cared for properly – if this happens, use a sharp knife to make a fresh cut, removing about an inch of the old stem, and place it immediately into fresh water; watch it come back to life in less than an hour. If it continues to wilt, you can submerge the entire bloom head and stem in water, re-cut the stem under water and keep it submerged for about 20 minutes or until it has rehydrated. Many flowers can be saved with the same care. Location, location, location! Keep fresh flowers in a cool spot (65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents and not directly under ceiling fans or on top of televisions or radiators. Heat = dehydration. Most flowers last longer under cool conditions. Brian Davies owns Zionsville Flower Company and teaches floral design at IUPUI. He can be reached at Saleszfc@gmail.com.

The importance of asset location Commentary by Joel Harris

As we embark on setting our goals for 2014, it might be a good idea to take a closer look at the asset location of personal finance your investments. Many of us have heard about the benefits of asset allocation, a theory in which a person invests his or her money in several asset classes in an attempt to provide the greatest return potential over time. This is all based on the person’s level of risk tolerance, time horizon and investment objectives.  But what about asset location? The idea behind asset location is placing various investments in different types of accounts to help minimize taxes. One of the most often overlooked aspects of short- and long-term financial planning is minimizing taxation through careful asset location. In the new year we will be inundated with ads on TV, radio and the Internet about taxes. Yes, that dreaded word we all loathe ... taxes. Instead of going through the motions and rushing to the post office on April 15, I challenge you to take a really close look at where your investments are located. With the equity markets having an outstanding year in 2013, many commonly held investments will pass on short- and long-term capital gains to investors. These hidden tax bombs can really wreak havoc in a taxable brokerage account. When you do your asset location analysis, focus particularly on the turnover ratio of your investments. Some investments can have upwards of 200 percent turnover in a given year. That means the capital gains exposure could be quite significant.

Why is that important? More than likely, you will receive a 1099 in February from your brokerage custodian because the capital gains were passed on to you as the shareholder, even if you didn’t sell any shares that given year. Instead of owning investments with high turnover inside a taxable brokerage account, wouldn’t it be more tax advantageous to own passively managed exchange traded funds? It is certainly something to consider, and it should be closely examined with your financial professionals. Additionally, taking advantage of tax-deferred accounts should be a priority. Taxation on your investments is the closest thing to acid rain for your money. It is imperative to keep an umbrella over your investments through the use of tax-qualified accounts such as 401(k)s, traditional and Roth IRAs, SEP IRAs, and even tax-deferred annuities. The compounding effect of money in taxqualified accounts is profound, so take a close look at these accounts when you analyze your asset location. In 2014, you will be allowed to contribute up to $17,500 into your 401(k) accounts, plus an additional $5,500 if you’re over age 50. The 2014 contribution limits on traditional and Roth IRAs will be $5,500, plus an additional $1,000 if you’re over age 50.  Keep in mind that you still might qualify to contribute up to $5,500, plus an additional $1,000 if you’re over 50, into your IRAs for the 2013 tax year.

DISPATCH The Obamacare penalty applies only to those who get a tax refund - Starting this year, the Obamacare law imposes a penalty on individuals who fail to have so-called minimum essential health insurance coverage for any month. You are supposed to pay any penalty you owe with your Form 1040 for the year — starting with your 2014 return, which you will file sometime next year. However, the only enforcement mechanism is that the government can subtract any unpaid penalty from your federal income tax refunds. So if you’re not owed a refund for 2014 or a later year, you will never have any consequences for not paying the penalty. You won’t be subject to criminal prosecution, and the IRS cannot put a lien or levy on your income or assets. - Yahoo! Finance F. C. Tucker Company’s

December building permit reports indicate that the construction business will do well in 2014 in the central Indiana area. Single-family building construction permits increased 21 percent compared to November numbers and increased 19 percent over 2012 numbers. There were 4,959 new home permits issued in 2013 compared to 4,182 in 2012.

“This is a true indicator of a strong economy in central Indiana,” said Steve Lains, CEO of the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis. “We have continued to see permit numbers steadily increase and forecasters are predicting numbers to hold strong in 2014; proving that a growing housing market is critical to a stable economy.”  In central Indiana, the permits issued through December 2013 are poised to create a total economic impact of $888,076,580 in local income, $201,608,085 in local taxes, and 15,036 local jobs.

The should haves and have nots Commentary by Jordan Fischer

I am not without my regrets. I mean, I’d be a millionaire many times over if I’d seen Bitcoin coming. And I probably grammar guy shouldn’t have gone to see “Prometheus.” (It’s just a thinly veiled remake of “Aliens.” Come on, Ridley!) Oh well … could of, should of, would of, right? Wrong. I see this error frequently. Folks incorrectly substitute “of” for “have” in phrases such as “I could have done better” or “I should have seen that coming.” It’s easy to understand where the confusion comes from. In speech, we often shorten “should have” and the like to “should’ve,” which sounds like “should of.” The misheard conjunction then makes its way back into writing, and we have ourselves a grammar error. Beyond just saying it’s wrong, though, let’s look at why it’s wrong. “Should,” “would” and “could” are auxiliary verbs, or helping verbs. Their function is to augment the main verb (i.e.,

to “help” it). They can be used to add a tense or aspect to a verb – as we’ve learned how to do recently with the perfect and progressive forms – or to change a verb’s modality into the conditional mood. We haven’t talked about moods in the grammatical sense yet, so we’ll leave it at that for now. When using an auxiliary verb, you need a main verb for it to augment – something like “go,” “be” or “have.” As a preposition, “of” doesn’t fit the bill. It leaves our helping verb with nothing to help and starts a prepositional phrase to nowhere. To wrap this rule up: Should you use “of” after an auxiliary verb? No. Would I recommend investing in Bitcoin? I advise against taking any investing advice from your grammar columnist. Could I forgive Ridley Scott for “Prometheus?” Yes … but only because he made “Blade Runner.” Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com.

Megiddo: The last battleground?

Commentary by Don Knebel

The excavated ruins of the ancient city of Megiddo overlook Israel’s Jezreel Valley. Based on a single ambiguous statement in travel the Bible, millions of people believe Megiddo and the Jezreel Valley will be the site of a climactic battle between good and evil. The Jezreel Valley, a triangular inland valley south of the Sea of Galilee, has been part of an important trade route between Egypt and southwest Asian empires for thousands of years. The Romans, who also used the route for military campaigns, called it the “way of the sea.” Competing empires trying to control intercontinental trade have fought at least 34 battles in the Jezreel Valley, the first one in the 15th century B.C. when Pharaoh Thutmose III fought the King of Kadesh. In the 20th century A.D., the allies fought the Ottoman Empire there. Since about 7,000 B.C., the city of Megiddo has controlled access to the Jezreel Valley. The Bible reports that King Solomon fortified Megiddo, along with the cities of Gezer and Hazor. Excavations at Megiddo have uncovered a 10th century B.C. chambered gate very similar to those found at Hazor and Gezer, lending support to that account. Archaeologists digging through 26 layers of ruins have also found evidence of administrative buildings and storehouses from Solomon’s time and a concealed tunnel built in the ninth

century B.C. that gave Megiddo residents access to their water supply during sieges. Megiddo was permanently abandoned after 586 B.C. when the Babylonians captured Jerusalem. The Book of Revelation reports that unnamed kings will be gathered together at Armageddon just before Jesus’ return, presumably to prepare for battle. The word “Armageddon” is a translation of the Hebrew “har megiddo,” or “mountain of Megiddo,” an apparent reference to the large earthen hill or “tel” that eventually formed over the abandoned Megiddo ruins. Relying on this

passage, Christians since the first century have predicted one final battle in the Jezreel Valley, almost always involving the most hated regimes of their eras, from the Romans to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. The wait goes on.

Upgrading a standard screened porch

Exisiting porch: This home in the Woods of Williams Creek addition on the west side of Carmel included a fairly blueprint for basic screened porch improvement installed by the original builder. The porch extended out to include an exterior deck landing and staircase. The goal of the project was to upgrade the screened porch, expand the deck footprint and upgrade the stairway down to the pool area. Porch upgrades: Most of the existing porch walls, trim and ceiling were removed. New piers were installed allowing the footprint of the porch and deck to be expanded out into the back yard. A new set of French patio doors were installed connecting the porch to the kitchen. New double screened doors were added to the other end of the porch allowing better access out to the deck. The ceiling received special detail with a beaded ceiling with coffers and trimmed out with crown molding. Deck details: The new deck and staircases were built using Trex Transcend composite decking in a Lava Rock color. Cable railing: A cable railing system, using powder coated newel posts and stainless steel cables, offered a more contemporary look and architectural interest to the structure. It also protected the view of the back yard from the up-

before & after

Final results: Good design transformed what could have been just an ordinary deck and staircase into a striking piece of architecture. Enhancing the already beautiful back yard, the new structure also offered the homeowners better views and increased functionality.

per porch. Cedar was used for the handrails and stained to match the new composite decking. Lighting: Lighting was of particular importance for safety, as well as aesthetics. LED accent lights were installed along the perimeter of the deck. Stair tread lighting was installed in a staggered pattern, allowing the steps to be lit using fewer fixtures.

Spring has sprung. How are you going to make the most of it?

2014

Planter boxes: To create a relaxing ambiance and privacy for the hot tub area, custom-built planter boxes were added to the tub decking. The boxes were framed in green treated wood, and wrapped with the Trex material to match the new structure.
