Town of Fishers answers questions about redevelopment plans By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com

MUNICIPAL DRIVE

The Town of Fishers held a redevelopment open house focused on the downtown planning and redevelopment master plan, Downtown Fishers 2030, last month. Representatives from the town, including Tom Dickey, director of community development, and Rachel Johnson, assistant director of planning, gave a presentation followed up by questions from community members in attendance. Below are a handful of questions and answers between residents and the town’s representatives summarized for brevity and space constraints. Q: If we get light rail, where will parking be for a decent cost? A: Dickey said the town would have to “plug and play” if it gets light rail. He said the town had been working with the Metropolitan Planning Organization on various aspects of light rail. There’s an idea that if Fishers has light rail, one stop would be in downtown, while another could be located in the area currently held by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport or another location on the north side of Fishers. Dickey also said a parking structure with as many as 800 spots could be a possible solution to parking. Town A possible layout of the future downtown Fishers.

Maintaining Excellence starts quest for senior academies By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com The race to a May 7 vote that will determine the fate of the Hamilton Southeastern School District’s planned senior academies has started. Last week, Maintaining Excellence, a political action committee that will inform about and promote the projects, held an informational meeting at the Fall Creek Township Office that included a presentation on the academies by Supt. Dr. Brian Smith and CFO Mike Reuter. “I think our schools are the biggest thing we have to support our community right now,” Kevin Clasen, Maintaining Excellence chairperson, said. The proposed $95-million project will provide space at Hamilton Southeastern High School and Fishers High School for a large crop of students working their way through the school system now, according to Smith and Reuter. “This is not about doing something glitzy or something that we don’t really need to do, this is about capacity,” Smith said. “It’s that simple.” The new classrooms will feature a set up and furniture tailored toward project-based learning and are described as “learning hubs.” Each academy will have a living-learning center with soft and hard seating – in other words, a less formal atmosphere – that will be open to all students in the evening, according to Smith.

In addition to the new facilities, students will have the opportunity to pursue any one of approximately 22 career pathways, earning college credit along the way. Smith said teachers at the schools were getting certified as adjunct professors, and steps were being taken so credits students earn could be applied to Purdue, Ball State and Indiana universities. For certain classes, students will learn via high definition interactive video with professors, but traditional classes will still be off-site. Clasen said the financial goal of the PAC was to raise about $15,000, with the hope of leaving some capital in the coffers for future referendums. A website and social media accounts are in the works. The group currently has $2,800, and Jason Meyer will serve as the organization’s treasurer. Meyer, a Fishers resident of 16 years, has kids that went through the school system, and he considers his PAC participation his way of repaying the schools. If the referendum fails, Smith said the school district’s other option was to bring in portable classrooms, along with other portable needs like restrooms and cafeterias. For opportunities and inquiries concerning Maintaining Excellence, e-mail Clasen at caash35@yahoo.com.

What happened: The district was asked, by consensus from the board, to continue with the design process for a cafeteria expansion project at Fall Creek Elementary. What it means: Stuart Godfrey of krM Architects presented a feasibility study on expanding Fall Creek Elementary School’s cafeteria. Godfrey touched on different plans that were under consideration. One of the plans builds a 2,500- to 3,000-square-foot addition in an existing courtyard at the school. That addition will include a teacher’s lounge and an art classroom including storage, according to provided materials. A hallway that already exists would be relocated to expand the cafeteria, making it possible to add about 11 more cafeteria tables. The plan also includes restroom renovations and office renovations for security. The overall bill is estimated from $1,075,000 to $1,375,000.

Government Some destroyed trees to be replaced COMMUNITY

By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com The Fishers Dept. of Public Works plans to replace 21 of the 34 ash trees on 116th Street that were infected by emerald ash borer beetles. Of the 34, 26 were recently removed, according to a post from the Town of Fishers. Not all of them will be replaced due to “nearby utility pipes,” the post goes on to explain. “For safety reasons, the Fishers Dept. of Public Works is in the process of removing more ash trees (that are either dead or dying from emerald ash borers) from the right-of-way locations throughout town and in some parks,” Maura Leon-Barber, Town of Fishers director of communications, said via email. Leon-Barber said that it would cost the town approximately $39,000 to replace the trees, which will be bought from Premier Trees in Fishers. She said DPW was assisting the nursery with hauling out the old stumps, as well as assisting with lane and road closures. The trees are located on the stretch of 116th

BestHeartCare.com

Street between Holland Drive and Conner Creek Parkway. According to Leon-Barber, the expense was budgeted this year under median landscape renovations. Each replacement tree weighs 10,000 pounds and will be installed “as soon as the weather cooperates.” “Due to the growing environment of a major road median, we felt that replacing the dead ash with large maples increases the odds of survival,” Leon-Barber said. “Three-inch caliper trees were originally installed – this isn’t a new practice. She said the trees were discovered to be infected in 2010. A follow-up treatment was planned last year, but the bug that was discovered in the state in 2004 (according to the DNR), was found in Fishers, so the follow-up treatment was cancelled. Hamilton County is under quarantine because of the emerald ash borer, according to the town. That means pieces of ash trees only smaller than 1 inch can leave the county, Leon-Barber said.

County now offering electronic tax-bill delivery By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

The Hamilton County Treasurer began offering electronic delivery of tax bills this past spring to all property owners in the county. The treasurer sends out more than 125,000 tax bills every spring. That mailing uses more than two tons of paper and costs more than $43,000 in postage alone. “We offered this service back in the spring of 2011 initially to every property owner whose taxes are paid through their lender. Then, with our mailing for spring 2012 taxes, this service was opened to any property owner who wasn’t registered yet. This is a great opportunity to save tax dollars and streamline the delivery of our tax bills,” County Treasurer Jennifer Templeton said. Hamilton County homeowner Bernie Huber already pays her property tax bills online. “It's 46 cents plus the check or $1 to hit send,” she said of electronic payment. “(Electronic bills) are a good idea to save paper and postage.”

Huber and her husband own their home in Arcadia. Since they no longer pay a mortgage, Huber said they only received one reminder a year to pay taxes. “If there were two reminders I wouldn’t mind getting it electronically,” she said. “It’s tough to remember to pay at the end of each year.” Westfield resident Cindy Olson also is in favor of the county’s greener opportunity. “Would I be the first in line to sign up? I’m still a hard copy person, but with time I suppose one would have to,” she said. To register for this service, go to www. hamiltoncounty.in.gov and click Sign Up For Property Tax eBilling under In the Spotlight. Those looking to register will need their April 2012 property tax statement from the Hamilton County Treasurer and the property access code number listed under the New Service Announcement section of that statement. If you have additional questions, contact the treasurer’s office at 776-9620.

Development Have a Better Spring.

A concept of the development provided by Town of Fishers

Dickey details public investment for mixed-use project By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com The potential mixed-use development in front of town hall, Fishers Station, was formally presented to the Fishers Town Council on Jan. 22, marking the beginning of the public input portion of the approximately $34-million project. Tom Dickey, director of community development at the Town of Fishers, said the project could not happen without public investment, which totals $10.75 million. Current in Fishers spoke with Dickey to get a better understanding of how the investment would occur. To bank roll the town’s investment, a $13-million bond (which will fluctuate because of interest rates, Dickey said) will be issued. That bond will be backed by county option income tax, a form of local income tax. According to Dickey, the portion of COIT received from Hamilton County is used to pay debt services for projects and help fund operations. Dickey said that projected through 2036, the town had six to 16 times the amount of revenue

coming in than what it had to pay down with COIT. But, the town does not intend to pay the bond with COIT. Instead, the bond will be paid with tax increment funding dollars captured from existing TIF districts and this project’s. “The bonds are more marketable with COIT,” he said. The bond market, or those that buy bonds, see COIT as a “defined revenue source,” he said. To accomplish a $900,000 annual debt service, the developer, Flaherty & Collins Properties, agreed to pay a defined amount from the project’s TIF dollars, with the town responsible for the remainder. According to Dickey’s presentation to the council, the project itself is projected to garner $532,000 TIF dollars annually. The town’s largest TIF district is the I-69 Downtown TIF area, which runs much of the length of I-69. Dickey said in 2013 the town would receive $808,000 from that district alone, provided taxpayers file and do not appeal those taxes.

Hundred-year hunger D.O. Taylor and his wife, Eleanor

Taylor’s Bakery to celebrate centennial this month By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com

It’s an all-out attack on the senses. Open the door to Taylor’s Bakery, and the sweetness of glazed donuts and baking cake hits the nose, and row after row after row of pastries snare the eyes. And it’s been that way for 100 years. Drew and Matt Allen, are the fourth generation to take over the grocery-turned-bakery that makes its home in Indianapolis with its second location on 116th Street. Long before the family moved and brought sugary confections to downtown Fishers, D.O. (Dennis Orville) Taylor founded the original Taylor’s Grocery and Bakery at 38th and Illinois streets 100 years ago next Wednesday. He passed the business down to his daughter, Virginia, who married James Allen, a Butler University track star. A now-yellowed piece of paperwork notes that in 1945, it cost a shopper at the store 58 cents to pick up six pork chops. The times continued to change. The 1950s and 1960s also marked the transition from a grocery to just a bakery. John Allen, the next generation, opened the company’s main location at 62nd Street and Allisonville Road in 1968, where all the goods for the Fishers location get baked today in the 15,000-square-foot facility. The Fishers location, opened by his sons, Matt and Drew, turns 10 this September. Drew said the family moved north as business grew, and he recognizes the growth happening in the town itself. “We moved out to Fishers in ’82 when it was five or six thousand people, so we’ve seen the growth firsthand,” he said. “Picking Fishers, the answer was obvious to us,” Matt said. Both Drew and Matt studied business at In10 | February 5, 2013

diana University and then took the helm. Drew said the brothers always had been attached to the business, which served as a “catalyst” for their own growth. Matt said he spent holidays and summers learning the ins and the outs of the business, including the recipes. Today, they pride themselves on the consistency they offer customers. A Taylor’s angel food cake made this year should be identical to one served in 1963. “Same pans, you know,” Matt said. “It goes in the same box. It’s tied the same way. Everything is identical about it.” However, new products do indeed line the walls, standing alongside the tried-and-true glazed yeast donuts, tiered cakes and other treats that have been getting the Taylor’s treatment for the past century. Bags of popcorn are stacked on shelves. Some are the Chicago blend of caramel and cheese corn, while others appear to be colored with the

rainbow and taste like Fruity Pebbles cereal. The second recently added product, in terms of the business’s overall history, is a variety of candies. “Yes, we’ve added two products, and they do very well,” Matt said. As people continue to order cakes for birthdays and weddings, the duo has its eyes on

Further expansion of the centuryold business could come in three to five years, according to Drew. “With two stores already, to remain consistent, to put a really quality product (out), we’re afraid if we expand too fast we’ll lose that,” he said. “We don’t really go chasing the quick dollar. We’re more about long-term (gains).” As part of a business intertwined with people’s happy moments – birthdays, weddings and more – one of Matt’s favorite parts of running the bakeries is being part of the fun. But a legacy is to be maintained. They’re not just continuing an angel food cake recipe passed down throughout the years – the brothers are holding onto a family run institution. Drew said he sensed a feeling of gratitude from what he did: working to provide for future generations. “Every day you go to work, you’re literally fighting for your entire family,” he said. www.currentinfishers.com

Opinion ‘Synth drugs’ need to be made illegal

Prairie praise It is our position that Conner Prairie Interactive History Park should be commended for maintaining a balanced budget for the seventh consecutive year. Most interestingly, Conner Prairie balanced its budget without taxpayer support. About 323,000 people attended Conner Prairie last year through visiting such events as Headless Horseman, 1859 Balloon Voyage, summer day camps, school programs, Symphony on the Prairie, Follow the North Star and Hearthside Suppers. Nearly 9 percent of these visitors – 22,000 people – came through a free or greatly reduced admission. In September, Conner Prairie was awarded a $2.3-million grant from the National Science Foundation to create and distribute a model for integrating informal science experiences into exhibits and programs at historic sites and museums across the country. This project is underway, and portions will be unveiled this year. To quote President and CEO Ellen M. Rosenthal, “The Conner Prairie of today proves that a museum can engage adults and children at the same time. It is a place that creatively offers a wide range of imaginative techniques to inspire learning about history. And it is still a place of great beauty, with a landscape that moves us with reverence and awe.” Well said, and well done.

Table talk Commentary by Terry Anker We routinely share family meals. As an important component of this communion, each of us is expected to distill the events of the day into an update for those gathered. With both of our children, there was a noted progression as they came to understand the mechanics of how to communicate and why it is so very important in human relationships. As Carolyn and I would share the day’s travails, we would routinely turn to the growing boys seated with us and look to them to contribute their own comments to the conversation. Amusingly, they failed to fully comprehend that we were speaking of events that had actually occurred during the day and that we were not making up bed-time stories. Our eldest would tell wild stories replete with sound effects and animated countenance of his adventures with dragons. When the younger son grew to the same age, he made use of a similar storytelling technique, but his tales were based in near-fact.

He imagined things that might have, but didn’t, happen which led to all sorts of fun – and some household confusion. With the passage of time, they came to understand that the goal was to share actual information and not to entertain with a yarn; and while we have missed the news of pterodactyl attacks, we have settled into a solid pattern of give-and-take. “How was your day?” is more than a polite exchange. We are each, to the best of our ability, responsible for communicating. As the kids grew old enough to invite friends to join us for a family meal, their unsuspecting compadres were, in their turn, expected to share their own news. Some initially struggled. Eventually, all came to appreciate the attention – and interest – of the adults at the table. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable. - Francis Bacon

Current in Fishers

Officers of the law, as well as lawmakers, last week got a boost in their efforts to quell the continued uprising of sales and use of synthetic drugs. A proposal by State Sen. Jim Merritt (RIndianapolis) to give police officers and prosecutors new tools to crack down on dangerous dope passed the Senate Committee on Corrections and Criminal Law by a 6-3 vote. According to the bill, synthetic drugs include a substance a reasonable person would believe is a synthetic drug; a substance a reasonable person would believe is being sold or purchased as a synthetic drug; and/or a substance that a person knows or should have known is intended to be consumed and that consumption is intended to cause intoxication. Merritt, the author of the previously enacted state Lifeline Law, now has put forth an idea that also would modify the existing definition of “intoxication” under Indiana Code to include impairment by any substance, excluding food and food ingredients, tobacco or a dietary supplement. Indiana’s current definition for intoxication only includes impairment by certain substances, such as alcohol and controlled drugs. We support his bulldogged approach. The senator said he believes the new definitions would give cops and prosecutors the tools necessary to arraign synthetic drug manufacturers and dealers who are slightly changing the chemical makeup of individual substances. It also will help get more impaired drives off our thoroughfare, which, at times, are dangerous enough. Merritt aims to send a sledgehammer of a message to dangerous motorists and those making, selling and using the artificial drugs. It’s a laudable effort, and we hope the measure sails through the Senate and House without delay, then is signed into law by Gov. Mike Pence. The Legislature last year made Spice, or artificial marijuana, illegal, and now it’s time to make the rest of the synthetic garbage illegal.

Hitting the cold ones Commentary by Dan Domsic In one of my recent columns, I told the tale of how computer problems wracked my world during the holidays. Today, I want to tell a different tale from my experiences in journalism. In the closing days of my time at Butler University, I managed to pull off the unthinkable. I made a case to write about the craft beer industry in the Hoosier state. My task was to take the semester to research and write one article on the business that was spreading all over Indiana. My quest led me to fascinating locales around the state – and to fascinating, foamy conclusions. Once, I interviewed a head brewer that got a degree in criminal justice and got to where he was by home brewing. Another time, I was being walked around a distribution warehouse. I turned and looked out a window into the warehouse and was stunned by thousands of cases of libations. If going to breweries was akin to visiting a playground for a college senior, visiting this place was like a pilgrimage to Mecca. And the brewers were almost always fun to talk to. Some were more businesslike than others, and only one owner seemed to knock me off-kilter.

Do you or someone you know suffer from:

In each and every pint that a Hoosier brewer sells, there’s huge profit for local business. At one brewery, it was revealed that a single pint might only cost a little more than a quarter to make if it was served off the draft line. And yet, people line up to pay $3 to $6 for a smooth Sun King Brewing Co. Sunlight Cream Ale or hoppy Three Floyds brew. I don’t know their overhead, but, of course, those folks are turning a profit. There’s a lot to be said about that situation. First, it must be a heck of a product. Second, consumers must have a certain loyalty and taste for the stuff if they’re willing to shell out that much when a six pack of Bud is super cheap. By the time I was finished with the project, I visited a brewery in Bloomington, returned to one of my favorite haunts back home, Three Floyds, and wrote a story about a business with historic roots (Indiana was awash in local beer before prohibition) flourishing. And I managed to get away with telling everyone I knew that I was doing homework when I grabbed a cold one.

OK, I’ve decided to give her a try Commentary by Danielle Wilson I’ve reached a decision, people, and no, it has nothing to do with plastic surgery. I will, from this point on, unto death do us part, pretend to love our dog, Libby. Because in reality, unless I want to get creative with a shovel and some lime, she’s here to stay (I’m kidding of course! I would never use lime). And if I don’t make peace with that, I’m going to endure a miserable 11 to 13 years. Here’s my line of thinking: She’s family. Whether I like it or not (and I really don’t), my children and my husband love her. And since I love them, the transitive property of canine ownership says I must in turn love the dog. Therefore, I shall accept my role as one of the primary caregivers and start pulling my weight when it comes to feeding, walking, and yes, even playing with Libby. To that end, I have begun taking her out for trips around the neighborhood. I get some exercise, she gets some “Danielle” time, and my kids think I’m awesome because they didn’t have to go outside in freezing temperatures. Fortunately for you, my avid fans, loving the dog doesn’t mean I can’t continue to complain about her. You only have to read my previous 300 columns to see that the people I love most provide the best venting fodder. So don’t worry,

Hire Us Before Your Spouse Does

you can expect many more sordid tales of Labrador retrievers gone awry. Hopefully what you won’t be hearing are stories about how I blame Doo for carpet stains, midnight awakenings and weaponized dog hair clogging the air vents. He was a pretty good husband in the early years with kids, putting in his fair share of diaper changes, Spagettios clean-ups, and pacifier retrievals; I can do the same for him now that he has the baby. So I’m adding to my New Year’s resolutions list “Pretend to love Libby until I actually do.” And I will eventually. I’m not so cold that I can’t look into those big brown eyes and feel nothing; it’s just that I’ve resisted because once I admit that I like her, I’m all in. I’ll have to cry when she’s hurt and mourn when she eventually leaves us. I bawled like a baby when my son’s gecko of four years died. A gecko! Imagine how I’ll be when my children’s eighty-pound dog passes! Look, I’m not promising to become a dog person, but I am promising to try loving Libby. Peace out.

Second City’s ‘Laughing Matters’ comes to Zionsville By Katie Franz • news@currentinwestfield.com

If you are looking for a good laugh this weekend, head over to The Second City performance, “Laughing Matters.” Zionsville Band and Orchestra Patrons, also known as ZBOP, partnering with Fanimation ceiling fans and Current Publishing, have organized the group’s return this Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Zionsville High School Performing Arts Center, 1000 Mulberry St. This will be the third year The Second City group has performed in Zionsville. The company’s website says the group aims to provide an escape from the “economic uncertainty, political gridlock, and dearth of Kardashians clogging up our televisions” through “much needed silliness and hilarious spontaneity.” The show will include both improvisational and scripted elements, and keeps the audience involved throughout. “There’s two to three improv games that we do throughout the show,” cast member, Eddie Mujica said. “The rest is scripted scenes but with moments that are improvised. We end every show with an improvised third act. That’s my favorite part of the night.” The Second City opened its doors in 1959 on the north side of Chicago and has since grown in reputation and location. The company has developed from a single stage to a multi-faceted enterprise of training centers, traveling troupes and resident performance groups in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. 14 | February 5, 2013

The company has cultivated a number of comedic stars, including Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Bill Murray, and boasts the largest training centers for improvisation and acting in the nation. Although The Second City has visited Zionsville twice before, ZBOP Chair Ann Pagano assures that the audience will be fully entertained. “Every year, it is a different show. New skits and, of course, improv is improv,” Pagano said. “We are hosting Second City for the third year because they attract an interactive crowd to the Zionsville Performing Arts Center and to Zionsville.” In addition to the show, Second City will offer two, 90-minute comedy improv workshops for all ages at 4:15 p.m. on Friday at a cost of $15 per person. “The workshops are very hands-on, not a

lot of sitting down. We try to keep the whole group up and going,” Mujica, who will be teaching the beginner group, said. “We start out with some warm-up exercises and some scene work, but then we tailor it to the group we have with us.” Classes are grouped by level, either beginner or advanced. Customizable small group workshops are also available by request. “It’s a good time,” Mujica said. “I think laughing is something that’s essential in everybody’s life, and, for these two hours, you can come and forget about anything else and lose yourself in the show and laugh along with us. We definitely enjoy being up there and hope you do too.”

The overall experience is worthwhile, even though I often found myself having difficulty getting emotionally invested in what was going on. Denzel Washington plays “Whip” Whitaker, a veteran airline pilot with a substance abuse problem. He drinks like a fish, snorts cocaine and carouses with a flight attendant mere hours before climbing into the cockpit. Once he’s in the captain’s chair, though, Whip is all business – seasoned, cocksure and steady. In fact, when the plane suffers a serious mechanical failure, he performs a virtually impossible maneuver to land the plane, saving more than

He falls in with Nicole (Kelly Reilly), a heroin addict decades his junior, as they help shore up each other’s crumbling identities. Things slowly build to a big government hearing to assign blame for the crash. Will Whip be lauded or reviled? “Flight” is less about one man’s public journey from hero to reprobate than his descent into himself. Movie: B

Sweet ‘n’ Hot Glazed Salmon

Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups apricot nectar; 1/3 cup chopped dried apricots; 2 tablespoons honey; 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce; 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger; 2 cloves garlic, minced; 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper; 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon; 1 (3/4 pound) salmon filet without skin Directions: Preheat your oven’s broiler, and grease a broiling pan.

Liquor-Infused Chocolate Strawberries Ingredients: 16 large fresh strawberries with leaves, 1/2 cup brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®), 1 pound bittersweet chocolate, chopped, 2 tablespoons shortening, 2 tablespoons heavy cream, 1/4 cup brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®), 1 (1 ounce) square chopped white chocolate Directions: Rinse strawberries and dry thoroughly. Use a syringe or clean marinade injector to inject about 2 teaspoons of brandy into each berry. Place them on a baking sheet, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

apricots, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cayenne. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until reduced by about half. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Remove 1/4 cup of the glaze for basting, and set the remaining aside. Place the salmon filet on the greased broiling pan, and brush with glaze. Broil 3 inches from the heat for 8 to 12 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Gently turn over once during cooking, and baste frequently during the last 4 minutes. Serve with remaining glaze.

In a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, combine bittersweet chocolate and shortening. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth. Stir in heavy cream and 1/4 cup of brandy. Place white chocolate in a separate bowl, and when the dark chocolate has melted, place the bowl of white chocolate over the pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Be sure to remove from heat as soon as it is mostly melted, white chocolate can be sensitive. Dip strawberries into chocolate, and let the excess drip off into the bowl before placing on waxed paper to set. When the strawberries have all been dipped in chocolate, dip a fork into the white chocolate, and drizzle back and forth over berries to stripe.

The next big training routine A REASON TO SMILE Commentary by April Conard I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor when Zumba was just starting. It is now one of the leading forms of group exercise. Well, I am pleased to say that I have now found the next big thing in fitness, and like Zumba, this one has staying power. It is called TRX suspension training. Basically, what that means is you are utilizing suspension straps from a single anchor point against your own body weight. The TRX’s single point attachment provides the ideal mix of support and mobility to train strength, endurance, balance, flexibility and core all at once. Since this program works a lot of muscles, it must be for only the elite athlete, right? Wrong. Suspension training is for all levels, all paces and all goals. Because you can instantly modify resistance by adjusting body position, suspension training workouts are safe and effective for people of all fitness levels. Sounds great, except that you do not know the first thing about what to do with this “contraption.” Well, that is where I come in. I, along with my fellow instructors, have just completed a course on group suspension training, which means we are instructing you the entire class. Added benefits to a class setting are that

20 | February 5, 2013

the instructor is there to immediately answer questions and guide your workout to what is safe for you. Besides, working out in a group is always more fun! Still not convinced? Let me ask you this, do you absolutely love your abdominals? Are you ready to show off your slim waist at a moments notice? All core, all the time - this is another one of the major benefits of TRX suspension training. Your center of gravity is located just above your hips. By changing your body positions you shift this center of gravity. Suspension training exercise techniques are designed to intentionally displace your center of gravity, which activates the core muscles during every exercise. Whether you are performing a row, lunge, or even a bicep curl, your entire core is engaged to stabilize and balance the body in a truly functional way. Adding TRX suspension training to your fitness regime is going to take your body to the next level. If you have hit the wall and the inches or pounds have started to stall, or you just want to see more definition, TRX is your answer.

Business Move the needle: Pareto principle

DOUGH

Commentary by CJ McClanahan Imagine for a minute that you have a daughter who is selling Girl Scout cookies, and she is obsessed (or maybe it’s you who’s obsessed, but that’s another column) with outselling everyone else in her pack/troop/den/whatever it’s called. You have decided to spend four hours next weekend helping your daughter sell cookies. As you consider all the possible tactics for unloading Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos and Tagalongs, you brainstorm the following options; walk the neighborhood, drive to your relatives or get a table at the super busy Kroger in your neighborhood. Where should you spend the majority of your time? It’s likely that your neighbors and relatives will be an easier sell, but if you are truly committed to being the best you should tell your daughter to put on her biggest smile and spend the afternoon greeting thousands of shoppers at Kroger. In other words, 80 percent of your sales will probably come from 20 percent of your effort. The same is true in business. Over the years, I have asked hundreds of entrepreneurs an important question – “Do you feel that all of your customers are equally important?” Most professionals respond by telling me that every one of their customers gets the same great service.

That is just plain silly. Now, I do expect you to give all of your customers great service – but except for certain industries (health care, etc.), they should not all be treated the same. The truth is that some customers are far more important to your business than others, and until you figure this out, you will struggle to grow profitably. Most professionals and business owners have a handful of customers who buy a lot, never complain about the price and refer a lot of new business. These individuals are very different from the masses that tend to price shop your product/service, gripe about their experience and have yet to bring a friend to your business. The first group should receive the follow up phone call to make sure everything went OK. They should get a thank you card in the mail. They should get the best table in your restaurant. If you disagree with this advice, that is perfectly OK. Just recognize that you have a hobby and not a business. Identify your best customers and treat them like royalty. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Love is a fight

Commentary by Mike Colaw

Because of my vocational role, my office can be an interesting place. I have a front and center view of marriages falling apart, addicts searching for hope and relief and parents pleading for help with a wayward child, all from my worn out old leather office chair. If you haven’t noticed, life can be really hard sometimes. This week, while doing an inductive study on Romans 12, I noticed something that you may already know. Love is often not at all like it is portrayed on television or in those cute little princess books I read to my daughter. Kids rebel, spouses are unfaithful ... there is obviously much evil in the world that brings people to the point of giving up hope on their marriage, their parental role or even their own life. Love isn’t always easy. In fact, it is often a fight. When we say, “I love you,” we often are referring to an emotional feeling. What if our statement of “I love you” meant something more? What if it meant I would fight – do whatever it takes – for you! Not a physical fight, but a relentless pursuit of faithfulness. In Romans 12:10-11 Paul states, “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.” In this abstract on love in action, he places this verse carefully. Devotion, honor, sincerity, joy, pa-

Is Adoption Right for you?

tience are all virtues that surround this verse. Zeal and fervor are to be central to all of these. It is a fight. Love is a fight and the opponent is often our will to continue. We must not quit fighting for love. Often people misunderstand the Bible in one of two ways. First, as muffins, rainbows, and hugs, painting Jesus as this hippie softhearted individual that blindly misses the actual state of the world. Or, they associate the Bible with genocide, believing that God is a horrible egotistic individual that just wants to be worshipped, missing completely the trajectory of Scripture. In both cases, I’ll often respond, “I don’t believe in that God either.” What I do see is Jesus, who was relentlessly faithful. He suffered for the ones he loves; he took emotional and physical abuse. He was betrayed and rejected, all in his zeal for faithful love. This amazes me. I want to keep my zeal, fervently hold to my commitments, fight for my family and for those hurting and in need. I desire to give hope to people who have none, proudly standing by an objective Truth that I believe holds the answers people need. I want to fight for love.

Attorney, Michele Jackson concentrates her law practice in adoption, surrogacy, and international family law. Jackson gives information below about the different ways to adopt and considerations for each type. The following is general information about adoption that may assist you making a decision regarding whether or not to pursue an adoption for your family. Domestic Agency Adoption: • Agency finds birth mother and matches you with her. • Agency assist in counseling and preparations for the adoption. • You will need an adoption attorney to assist you with the legal aspects of the adoption. • Generally you have a relationship prior to adoption and possibly post adoption with the birth mother/family and have good social and medical history on the child. • Birth mother can only consent to adoption post birth and her consent is vital for the success of the adoption. Foster-to-Adopt: • Child is a ward of the state and the state must qualify you to adopt and match you to child. • Child has been a victim of abuse or neglect. • There is typically some type of contact with biological family pre-adoption and possibly post-adoption. • Child may not be an infant. You generally have good social and medical history on the child. • Child may not qualify for adoption and be reunited with their birth family, depending upon when in the process you decide to be involved. Private Domestic Adoption: • You have found your own birth mother. • You need an adoption attorney to complete your adoption. • Contact with the birth family may happen pre-adoption and post-adoption. • You generally have good social and medical history on the child. International Adoption: • Your agency matches you with a child in another country. • You need an agency to complete your adoption (which includes legal services of an attorney). • You have little to no contact with birth family. • Country qualifications and requirements must be met for adoption to be completed. • You may know little to no information regarding social and medical history of the child. Remember, these suggestions are not meant to be legal advice. You should consult a family law attorney to discuss the specifics of your situation. 317-569-0770 . hardenjacksonlaw.com

Bath remodel considers owners’ long-term plans Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BATHROOM: This home, located in the North Willow Farms subdivision on the north side of Indianapolis, was built in 1967. The current owners have lived there since 1972 and their reasons for updating their home were similar to many others: “There was nothing structurally wrong with the bathroom, but it was very dated. A few years ago, we decided we were going to stay in the house, so we began remodeling it. We started with the kitchen and then moved to the master bath.” DESIGN PHASE: The overall footprint of the space worked well already, therefore, the main goal of the remodel was to update. “The shower door was hazed over, the shower did not work well, and the grout was bad.” The designer was able to gain space from the toilet compartment to increase the size of the shower. SHOWER DETAILS: The new walk-in shower was tiled with a 12-inch by 18-inch stone tile in Grecia beige in a horizontal pattern. A storage wall niche was installed with a multicolored tile that matched the shower floor. The shower de-

sign included an arched doorway into the shower, which was tiled in 4-inch by 4-inch tumbled stone in a Sandlewood color. A frameless glass shower door also was installed. The new maple cabinetry in a cashmere finish with an auburn glaze was complimented with brushed bronze hardware. Venetian gold granite countertops were added, with rubbed bronze faucets. AGING-IN-PLACE: The owners plan to stay in their home for a long time and mobility and ease-of-use were a consideration in the design. A lower door threshold into the shower and a decorative yet functional grab bar were added to increase the usability of the space. FINAL RESULT: “Our favorite part of the new bathroom is the shower. Our designer knew our budget and helped us balance the materials and design costs so we could get the results we wanted.” Larry Greene is the owner of Case Design/Remodeling Indy, a fullservice design/build remodeling firm serving Boone, Hamilton, and Marion Counties.
