Fishers Town Council – Feb. 4

Food truck ordinance serves up debate

What happened: A request to establish a Parks and Recreation Foundation was approved in the consent agenda. What it means: With the agenda’s approval, the town staff will request the IRS to grant the foundation 501(c)3, or nonprofit, status. This process stretches back to council meetings last May. According to a council action form from Barry Russell, director of Parks and Recreation, the Parks Advisory Committee will serve as its board of directors.

What’s next: The staff will make the request to the IRS.

What happened: Two requests relating to the 106th Street and I-69 Interchange project were approved in the consent agenda. What it means: Two other consent agenda items dealt with the planned projects for 106th Street. First, a contract amendment with A&F Engineering was approved for the design of a roundabout at 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard, which costs $48,650. The council action form from Jeff Hill, director of engineering, states: “The proposed amendment will allow the completion of final design for the intersection project so the plans can be ready to build the project at any time. It could be combined with the interchange project, or could be built as a standalone project.” Second, the first payment for the 106th Street and I-69 Interchange was approved. The multimillion dollar project requires $8 million of funding from the Town of Fishers. This first payment was for $1 million.

What’s next: The roundabout design will be completed. An invoice and claim for the payment on the 106th Street and I-69 Interchange will be put on the accounts payable register at Monday’s council meeting.

What happened: Second reading for Ord120312, a text amendment for the Pet Palace planned urban development, was held. What it means: The petitioner, Andrew Pierson of Pierson Bark Park, is looking for a change in zoning. The amendment would shift the size of two of the parcels on the land, as well permit a kennel on one of the parcels and deny it on another. Currently, a kennel is a permitted use on parcel B, but not on parcel A, where a house would be converted to the kennel. One remonstrator, Kevin DeTrude of Beverly’s Precious Pets LLC, addressed the council. DeTrude’s original letter of remonstrance asks that the rezone hold the Pierson Bark Park to the “same development and architectural standards.” One neighbor addressed the council in Pierson’s support.

What’s next: The text amendment will return to the council for third and final reading at Monday’s council meeting.

By Dan Domsic • Food truck operators and other community members made their voices heard at last week’s Fishers Town Council meeting, campaigning for mobile concessions in town. An ordinance that would allow food trucks to operate in Fishers after buying a permit is up for approval by the Fishers Town Council. The ordinance would call for “mobile concessions” to register and purchase a $200 permit from the Fishers Parks and Recreation Dept. or agree to a memorandum of understanding to sell their wares in the Town of Fishers. A list of excluded events or locations requires the mobile businesses to enter into an MOU, including the Fishers’ Concert Series and Fishers Movies in the Park – otherwise food trucks and mobile concessions will be able to operate freely in Fishers with the consent of owners if the mobile businesses park on private property. For S.P.O.R.T.S. events, the cash made by the department will be given to the athletic program. The ordinance was given a second reading at the Feb. 4 council meeting, and it will return to the council one more time for a vote on Monday at 7 p.m.. Scott Faultless, Fishers Town Council member, opposes the ordinance. “We have a lot of families and small businesses who have invested their entire life sav-

ings into opening up businesses,” he said. Faultless went on to say that families make big investments to make businesses in Fishers possible, while contributing to the revenue the town receives via property taxes and impact fees, as well as to the schools and other public institutions. “The food trucks threaten the existing local businesses and family restaurants, and especially shops, and if they can go anywhere in town, that’s a threat to those business, and I don’t agree with that.” Faultless later said he was supportive of expanding businesses in Fishers, but not to the extent of creating an environment he believes would hurt local businesses. Pete Peterson, Fishers Town Council vice president, disagreed with him. “It is my opinion that the free market enterprise system works best when governed least,” he said. “I believe competition is good. It makes businesses better.” Food truck owner made their case, as well. “It’s a great entry point for anybody looking to start a business,” Shelby Malaterre, Caveman Truck founder, said. Bob Pollock of Nickel Plate Bar and Grill welcomes the competition but doesn’t agree with the whole ordinance. “I disagree with allowing food trucks on public property that I have paid my taxes on for over 20 years,” he said.

The most common type is obstructive sleep apnea in which weight on the upper chest and neck contributes to blocking the flow of air.

Cardiologist Christopher Hollon, MD, with St.Vincent Medical Group will be the first to tell you that excessive snoring can be a sign of serious health conditions, including high blood pressure and heart disease. “Snoring is a sign of sleep apnea, which can cause hypertension,”said Hollon. “When your airway relaxes and restricts

Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with obesity, which is also a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, with stroke being the fourth highest cause of death, as well as being a leading cause of disability. Snoring should never be taken lightly. If you or your partner has a snoring problem, consider consulting a physician.

Academy is looking for leaders

By Dan Domsic •

The Town of Fishers is offering its Town Government Academy for the spring semester. Citizens that sign up for the program get a chance to learn the ins and outs of the governmental process, speaking with department heads during the free, nine-week program. Participants meet on Tuesdays from 6 to 8:30 p.m., visiting with various officials throughout the process. Registration is required by March 5, and the program begins on March 6. Tony Elliot, assistant to the town manager, will lead the course. He said the course gives residents the opportunity to get a unique or intimate look at what local government does every day. “A lot of the questions like ‘why’ and ‘how’ sort of get answered through the program,” he said. Residents get the opportunity to contribute to efforts going on in town while they complete the program. During the Fall semester of the academy, citizens had the chance to weigh in on downtown redevelopment plans, serving as a public forum, according to Elliot. How much the citizens get to participate in current happenings is up to the discretion of individual department heads, who Elliot describes as the “professors” of the program. The students have the chance to learn from all corners of government, from the Fishers Police Dept. crime lab to the wastewater treatment plant.

Hire Us Before Your Spouse Does

Elliot said the program was good for transparency and allows town employees to share their professions with people. “We also see value in it as identifying leaders in the community for the future,” he said. One community leader began a lasting relationship through the program that would later lead to a big opportunity. John Wechsler, founder of coworking space and start-up incubator Launch Fishers, got involved in the academy after completing the Citizen’s Police Academy. There, he met now Town Manager Scott Fadness. At one point, Wechsler was pursuing opening a privately-run business incubator in town. Now Launch Fishers is a reality in downtown Fishers, backed by the council, Fadness and more. When asked whether getting to know Fadness through the academy eased the process, Wechsler said it “unquestionably” did. The academy is the first step toward getting involved in the community, Wechsler said. “If you trace our relationship – Scott and mine – starting there and fast forward and now we’re in the middle of Launch Fishers, I don’t see a better exhibit or case study on why citizens should get involved on this level of their local government,” Wechsler said. “Great things can truly happen when people get involved and understand how their tax dollars are spent and how their government operates.” For more information on the program, visit

MOMS Club event to benefit library – The Hamilton East Public Library, the library in Fishers, is offering up a bevy of programs this month.

New commissioner ready to make his mark By Robert Herrington • For the next four years, Westfield’s Mark Heirbrandt will serve as Hamilton County Commissioner in District 3. While his name never appeared on a voting machine or before the public voters, Heirbrandt was elected during a caucus of Republican Precinct Committeemen from all over Hamilton County on Jan. 26. “I knew I had an uphill battle. A lot of people in Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville didn’t know who I was,” he said. “It was important that I got out and met people that were going to vote. For two weeks my wife and kids hardly saw me.” Heirbrandt will serve the remainder of Doug Carter’s four-year term after Carter resigned in early January when he was selected by newly elected Gov. Mike Pence to be the Indiana State Police Supt. Heirbrandt has known Carter for 40 years, but the two became friends during Hamilton County Sheriff Mark Bowen’s campaign. “At a golf outing, we were paired together and just hit it off,” he said. “The past two years, I’ve gotten pretty close to Doug. We went to a lot of the same conferences and drove together to events… He’s very ethical. He’s kind of a model for me. I have the utmost respect for him.” Heirbrandt and his wife, Gina, have lived in Hamilton County for 20 years. While they currently live in Westfield, the couple have also

lived in Carmel and Noblesville. “I have a good understanding of what the different needs are because I’ve lived in different communities,” Heirbrandt said. Heirbrandt works in the energy engineering and water treatment service industry. His focus is on local governments within the state of Indiana so he works with councils and elected officials every day. “I go in and assess the facilities and operations, look for cost-saving opportunities and creative ways to save them money. I uncover

inefficiencies and work to offset costs with grants, state incentives or creative funding,” said Heirbrandt, who also served six years on the Westfield Board of Public Works and Safety. “The past 14 years, I’ve been involved in local government. I know what worked and what didn’t work.” In his first month as a Hamilton County Commissioner, Heirbrandt wants to get out and meet the people in Hamilton County. He also is looking to learn from fellow Hamilton County Commissioners Christine Altman and Steve Dillinger. “They’ve got a lot of experience. I was encouraged because I really want to learn a lot from both of them,” he said. “I think I’m going to bring some energy and a new perspective. I want to continue to make Hamilton County a great place to live and raise a family.” Altman said Heirbrandt had been devoted to his new role. “I was very impressed with his first meeting,” she said. “He knows how to work with people and get jobs done.” Altman said Heirbrandt’s infrastructure background was a welcomed addition to the commissioners. “That’s a lot of what commissioners do. That’s a huge plus for us,” she said. “We have good people working for us, but it’ll be nice having that experience on the board.”

Jeff Coffin plays alongside the Fishers High School Jazz Ensemble. (Photos by Robert Herrington)

Fishers High School musicians are treated to a priceless lesson from professional saxaphonist Jeff Coffin and his band, the Mu’tet By Dan Domsic • Jeff Coffin shares the stage with the Dave Matthews Band and has loaned his talents with a saxophone to Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. He has three Grammy awards to show for it. But last week, Coffin shared the stage with the Fishers High School Jazz Ensemble. His group, Jeff Coffin & the Mu’tet, put on a clinic for FHS and Noblesville High School students last Tuesday. The Mu’tet is a five piece band, with Felix Pastorius on electric bass, Bill Fanning on trumpet and space trumpet, Chris ‘the Pianimator’ Walters on keys and Grammy-winner Roy “Futureman” Wooten on drums. “People all over the world know these guys,” Charlie Kunz, FHS director of bands, said. “They have so much experience and they have so much knowledge, for the kids to be able to hear that is great because there’s stuff I can’t explain to them until they hear it.” They jammed for the students and teachers in the audience, with Coffin wailing on the saxophone, his face changing hue as his fingers keyed one solo after another. It started as a jam session, with Coffin and the band mates playing a few tunes like “Albert’s Blues” and later jumping into one of their own tunes, “Low Spark,” a jam that has a level of Arabic influence and an active accordion part. Seemingly comfortable in his blue jeans, Coffin said when he first learned he wanted to go 14 | February 12, 2013

Know More Jeff Coffin and the Mu’tet is a five piece band, with Felix Pastorius on electric bass, Bill Fanning on trumpet and Jeff Coffin on tour with the space trumpet, Dave Matthews Band Chris ‘the Pianimator’ Walters on keys and Grammywinner Roy “Futureman” Wooten on the drums. The group released “Into the Air” last year. Coffin will return to the Dave Matthews Band during its upcoming tour.

Akshay Athawale, an FHS senior and saxophonist, was excited to be part of Coffin’s clinic. What he didn’t know was that after asking a question about musical improvisation, Coffin would confront him about who his favorite saxophonists were. Then Coffin invited him on stage, and the two dueled back and forth, making up music and notes along the way. Athawale said it was a terrifying and great experience.

Students whipped out their phones to take notes while Coffin and his fellow musicians rattled off the greats that have graced the stage before them. “I think that because I’m in a band that’s well known, it gives me a particular kind of credibility to the students, but really it’s irrelevant in my opinion,” Coffin said. “There are many people that don’t have that notoriety or that visibility that are every bit as qualified to give this information. But because someone comes in that they know who it is, it’s sort of like, ‘Wow it’s an alien.’ And you get to come in; you get to be an alien.” After having a question and answer session with the students, Coffin jumped in to join the

Jazz Ensemble, throwing down solos and taking breaks to get the band in the zone while working with Kunz, ultimately practicing for a show they would play together later that evening. While they practiced, Futureman and Walters took a little time to chat with some of the young musicians when they could. Kunz was Coffin's classmate at then North Texas State, now University of North Texas. So, when Coffin and the band come through the area, they know who to call. Coffin played at Fishers about five or six years ago. “Some of the things he can do with a saxophone, I didn’t know you could do. I was blown away,” Levi Reece, a Noblesville High School sophomore, said. “He showed me there was no limit to what the sax can do.” The Fishers Jazz Ensemble will perform again later this month and early in March.

Food truck debate: Wheel ’em in here

Pink ink

It is our position that the current trend of tattoo body art is more than a fashion statement. Move over Popeye the Sailor Man because Olive Oyl has taken over your seat at the local tattoo parlor. The percentage of women has surpassed the percentage of men sporting body art, encompassing nearly one quarter of the population in the United States. Stars, flowers, vines, butterflies and fairies have replaced anchors and barbed wire armbands among the most popular tattoos. It’s conceivable that the rise in women being tattooed is due to a greater acceptance among the general public, caused by celebrity influence or gender equality. More than likely, the texting generation sees body art as another form of nonverbal communication in the expression of power, love, confidence, immortality and religion. Dressing for success is now literally skin deep. Though, the question must be asked, “Is this newly vogue form of self-expression a help or a hindrance to social acceptance?” How will the body art wear as skin starts to age? Will there be a huge market for tattoo removal in the future? After all, flowers do wilt, and stars fall from the sky. Perhaps it’s all a deliberate part of one’s pictorial life story.

How many details matter

Commentary by Terry Anker

Efficiently exchanging information helps to make us humans the top of the food chain. It gives us the ability to work closely together and express complex thought through a variety of different formats – spoken and written being the most commonly employed. But in a world awash with information, how much detail do we need to get our points across? A recent study shows that the average office worker spends about 25 percent of their time responding to or composing e-mail messages. That amounts to around a 167-page novel written each year by each one of us. Coupled with the proliferation of text messaging, the ubiquitous voicemail and, yes, even good-oldfashioned post, most of us struggle to keep up. But, the communication matters. It keeps communities connected, families on track and businesses humming. So how do we keep the lines open without overloading our circuits? As we go through the end-of-day rundown in our house, I’ve been known to accuse my

bride of telling of her day in real time. Even as she dutifully shares with me the particulars of the conversation she’d had with her mother, my attention wrongly begins to wane. And, I’ve been known to pare down too much. Imagine this exchange: The Smiths had a baby. What did they name it?I’m not sure. How big is it? I’m guessing that it is babysized. Well, do you even know what it is? I don’t know what kind of baby – I assume it is a boy or a girl. Over time, I’ve learned that gender, size, name and condition are important variables that need to be reported. So, until us meager humans are able to effectively deploy the Vulcan mind-meld so deftly administered by Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, we have to find our own way – clumsily but sincerely.

The Great Food Truck Debate rages on. An ordinance governing food trucks was on the Fishers Town Council docket for a second reading last week. Second readings typically invite public comment. One of the councilors, Scott Faultless, is not supportive of the ordinance for several reasons, but Pete Peterson took Faultless on via a prepared statement - invoking principles such as government not picking winners and losers, entrepreneurial spirit and others. Aware that Faultless was not supportive of food trucks, multiple food truck owners and operators spoke their cases. How great it was to have citizens actually participate in the democratic process. This may lead to the conclusion that business is indeed interested in investing in Fishers and making money. As for us, where’s that fish-taco truck? Bring it on! ••• The Hamilton County Council has given its support to an agreement to bring Ivy Tech to Noblesville, something that benefits the whole of the county. All that’s left for the addition of the school to become reality is a May 7 referendum and grabbing some state funding. With a mini-campus already in Carmel, this would give Ivy Tech a broader footprint in our county and would be a job generator on multiple levels. We’re in favor of it happening, especially for reasons of affordable education with traditional four-year colleges often missing the mark. An Ivy Tech in Noblesville would be utilized by all communities and paid for by all communities. It’s good for all of us. Too, there could be myriad partnerships with local school districts, which would be a wonderful move. ••• So, the U.S. Postal Service announces, in a move for fiscal responsibility, its intent to abandon Saturday delivery in August, and members of Congress already are putting up potential roadblocks.

Yoga, you have changed my life

It’s about more than space Commentary by Dan Domsic When I went through high school, a handful of enriched or advanced placement classes were available to help prepare students and maybe even allow them to earn a few college credits. There was an advanced English course that was available all four years, and, of course, I ate that up. I even tried my hand at AP biology, muddling through one of the toughest classes I’ve ever taken. And then there were all the enriched math classes I had the pleasure of taking. Yes, I’m being incredibly sarcastic about that last academic endeavor. A journalist that enjoys messing with numbers? Good luck finding one of those. I always thought it was unfair that peers who went to different schools had the opportunity to take a full course load of advanced classes. Yes, I was that nerdy. So, now, as information flows about the senior academies project, it’s evident that Fishers has a decision to make about high school education. HSE School District Supt. Dr. Brian Smith bills the new project as a necessity for space. He and CFO Mike Reuter say that if the academies don’t become a reality, more portable classrooms will. But, what they’re doing is so much more. The senior academies add space at HSEHS and

FHS, change how classrooms are set up and give students a chance to earn college credits – and as Smith sells it – maybe even knock a year off of their time in undergrad. The big question is whether parents will buy it and vote yes on a May 7 referendum and approve funding for the $95-million project. I’m trying to pay as much attention as I can to how this will impact taxpayers, and when I can, I will report on that. But for now, I’m curious to know whether there is anyone out there that doesn’t like the idea. Smith has said building a new high school altogether would cost $120 million. Unlike the recent town vs. city referendum, it seems there’s less history and defined sides – unless you count other school-related referendums Fishers has passed during the past few years. In the meantime, I’ll keep my eyes peeled. As always, visit me at my coffee hours at Hearthstone Coffee House & Pub from 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower • PG-13, 102 minutes The Sessions • R, 95 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd I’ve never attempted a double video review before, but the simultaneous release of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and “The Sessions” make for a perfect opportunity. Both are small, heartfelt, exquisitely acted dramas about people living on the margins of their community. And each film was virtually ignored in the Academy Award nominations. In “The Sessions,” John Hawkes plays Mark, a man in his late 30s who is paralyzed and lives inside an iron lung. Frustrated with his virginity, he retains sex therapist Cheryl (Helen Hunt) to help bring him into adulthood, as he puts it. “Perks” may just be the best high school movie of the last two decades. Writer/director

Stephen Chbosky, who adapted the film from his own novel, perfectly captures the moods and fears of the teenage soul. Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a smart, outcast underclassman who gets taken under the wing of Patrick (Ezra Miller) and Sam (Emma Watson), a pair of popular but misfit seniors. In a film year of highs and lows, these two stood head and shoulders above the crowd … despite Oscar’s snub.

Grant helps IRT further its mission The Indiana Repertory Theatre announced a $10,000 grant from The Sallie Mae Fund, a charitable organization sponsored by Sallie Mae. The grant makes The Sallie Mae Fund a Student Matinee and Artist in the Classroom sponsor for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which runs April 10 through May 12 on the IRT OneAmerica Stage. “We believe theater can be used as a primary tool to bring meaning into the lives of students, making the arts an invaluable component of their education,” said Steven Stolen, managing director at IRT. “This generous gift from The Sallie Mae Fund will allow more Indiana students the opportunity to engage in literature and history through theater. This is an exciting partnership for us as we continue to introduce live theater to Indiana students.”

In 2012, the IRT provided 105,472 live professional theater experiences for audiences. These experiences included 41,747 students and teachers from 57 of Indiana’s 92 counties, making the IRT one of the most youth-oriented professional theaters in the country. A staff of more than 100 seasonal and year-round employees creates eight productions exclusively for Indiana audiences. Actors, directors and designers are members of professional stage unions. “The Sallie Mae Fund is proud to support arts education programs that help students achieve academic goals and contribute to more vibrant communities,” said Jon Kroehler, senior vice president of Sallie Mae at the Fishers office. “With this curricula-linked program, the Indiana Repertory Theatre is building on a strong relationship with teachers and schools to offer a matinee that will resonate with student audiences and enrich their overall education.”

HEALTH Wellness

Everyday exercise tips for winter Commentary by Jessica Swenberg, MD If you find yourself slacking off on your New Year’s resolution to exercise, there are some great ways to stay fit indoors that don’t require an expensive gym membership. Even during the winter months when it’s harder to stay active, it’s important to keep moving. To stay healthy and fit, adults are strongly encouraged to engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise three to five times a week. With a little creativity, you can easily work fitness into your daily activities. At work, bypass the elevator and take the stairs. If you’re running errands, park your car at the far end of the parking lot and take advantage of a longer walk to the door. Household chores also provide fitness opportunities. Turn on some music and move more while you’re vacuuming. If your home has stairs, be deliberate about making multiple trips up and down them. Carrying a loaded laundry basket up the stairs can help tone arms and provide cardiovascular benefits. Do you watch TV at night? Do sit-ups, push-ups or other floor exercises while catching up on your favorite

shows. To increase fitness, there are also some worthwhile and affordable exercise and toning DVDs on the market. Try a new one – maybe explore yoga or Pilates – every few weeks if you get bored. Another way to exercise indoors is to jump rope in the garage or basement. Use the internet or consult your local newspaper to find inexpensive exercise classes. Many fitness centers offer low-cost classes with no monthly or long-term commitment. As we know, Indiana weather in February and March can be fickle – warm one day and cold the next. Even when temperatures are in the 20s and 30s, you can layer clothing and take a brisk walk outdoors. As long as there is no risk of falling due to ice or snow, walking in the winter is a beneficial way to get your recommended weekly exercise. Consider making walking or fitness dates with a friend; you’ll be less likely to skip out on exercise if you have a standing appointment. Jessica Swenberg, MD, specializes in family medicine. She is a guest columnist located at IU Health Physicians Family Medicine, 55 Brendon Way, Ste. 800, in Zionsville. She can be reached by at 777-6400.

DOUGH Insurance

Is umbrella coverage a necessity? Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Lindsey J. from Fishers: My insurance agent is always trying to sell me an umbrella policy. Is this something I should consider adding? It just seems like an extra cost. Answer from Jamie Ianigro: It sounds like you have a good agent. I always encourage my clients to at least consider adding the extra layer of liability protection that an umbrella/catastrophe policy will add. An umbrella policy is really all about having the peace of mind in knowing that your family and assets are protected. There are many ways to end up with an umbrella claim but the most common umbrella claim is an auto accident involving multiple injuries and very costly medical bills. The other common claim is an incident on your property that results in injury. Medical and legal costs can eat up the underlying limits of your homeowner, auto, boat or motorcycle policy pretty quickly. Your umbrella policy or your personal assets cover these costs when your policy limits are exhausted.  This is definitely a topic you should discuss with your independent insurance agent to make sure you are protected by a level of coverage that you are comfortable with. Most people should be pretty comfortable with a coverage limit of $1 million, but limits exceeding $10 million are available if you are looking for more.

Umbrella claims can happen no matter how prepared you are. Instead of talking about prevention this week, I want to show a couple of claim scenarios to illustrate how an umbrella policy will work.  Scenario #1: The insured’s son was driving his car on a short road trip with a friend, the claimant. The car drifted off the road and into a phone pole when the son fell asleep at the wheel. The passenger was hospitalized for more than a month with broken bones and internal injuries. The hospitalization was followed by some time in a wheelchair, but he was able to walk again after six months of physical therapy. This claim cost $800,000 with $300,000 coming from the auto limits and $500,000 coming from the umbrella limits.  Scenario #2: The insured is having a summer barbeque and one of the guests steps off the edge of a retaining wall resulting in a spinal cord injury. He required multiple surgeries, an extended hospital stay and physical therapy. This claim cost $1.8 million with $1 million coming from the homeowner’s limits and $800,000 coming from the umbrella limits.  Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services.

The problem is in the ‘no’ Commentary by David Cain Songbirds sit on the limb and sing a sweet song, happy to be cute as their whistle brightens the sunshine to a crisp glow. The eagle cruises high in the sky like royalty, a powerful presence. The chicken pecks around the pen. The chicken, well, the chicken might become dinner. My kids always ask to do new things. “Can we…” is the start of a lot of sentences at our house and, unfortunately, “no” can become the easy answer. It’s easy because it allows you to move on quickly. It’s unfortunate because “no” also shuts down the possibility for a “yes” and that yes might be where the opportunity lies. The yes is where the learning happens. My failure as a parent lies in taking the easy route and saying “no.” If you say no enough, people A lesson at half-time – How did the Super Bowl half-time shows get so big? According to Forbes’ Mike Ozanian, Fox’s Rupert Murdoch pulled off a coup during the 1992 half-time show. Fox’s comedy show “In Living Color” satirized the Super Bowl live and included a clock counting down to the beginning of the second half, wrecking the ratings of the second-half of the game and proving the networks needed the “young, hip audiences.” In the following year, Michael Jackson took the stage, and it’s been big-time since. –

begin to stop asking. It’s the same at the office, too many negative answers stop the questions and more often than not, the opportunities lie with the questions. Questions challenge you; questions are the offense in your game. The questions knock you off center and create a closer look at what you are doing. The questions allow you to learn and grow. The questions are for the eagles. Songbirds, eagles and chickens are each a feathered fowl. But, the songbird only sings and the chicken gets eaten.

Sales by the slice – We do love our pizza, but just how much? Domino’s Pizza was projecting a huge bump in sales volume in its pizza alone on Super Bowl Sunday. A total of 11 million slices of pizza would have set the company up for an 80 percent increase from any other Sunday out of the calendar year, but they’d still be behind Pizza Hut’s projected Super Bowl slam of about 16 million slices –

Black makes moulding pop

Is caring for an aging loved one weighing you down? Do you need support? Help? Answers? Join us ...

Commentary by Vicky Early If you are a true interior decorating aficionado, I am sure you have experienced this. It happens when you least expect it. You know the feeling … you walk into a room and let out a gasp. The room is incredible, and you have to stop and simply absorb it. This typically happens when risks are taken with skill. One of my favorite leaps out of the norm is an unexpected color of molding. I once saw a room painted an unassuming pale blue and the thick molding around the windows, the crown molding, and the doors were all painted a warm black. Yes, black molding paired with unassuming pale blue walls sounds horrible. The finished product was incredible. Black is that grounding color that flatters any hue that stands alongside it. Black is thought of as a sophisticated color, but for those who fear the dark, it’s often written off as too risky. Sophistication is defined by black, so light walls and black trim and doors are destined to be classic. Crown molding, doors, shoe molding, stair treads, railings, bookcases and cabinetry take on an air of importance when painted black. When black is too intimidating, consider a color for molding and doors while leaving the walls a color closer to white. Elevated style can be added to this combination by adding nail heads to the closet door. These techniques are most effective when the Easy Valentine’s Day decoration – So, you’re running out of time before the big day and don’t have a lot of cash for holiday decorations, right? A really easy way to add a handmade Valentine’s Day decoration to the living room is by simply using stencils or homemade letters and some fabric paint to spell out ‘love’ all loveydovey on a plain pillow. Done and done! –

Presented By:

remainder of the room is somewhat quiet and just a few focal points demand attention. The drama of the molding makes it a major focal point, and it must be regarded as such, or the room risks becoming kitschy. Technique is important for a professional finish. Spray painting your molding and doors is ideal, but if that is not an option, use a dense foam roller. Brush marks will be obvious with gloss trim paint.

INSIDE & OUT Outdoors

A preview of 2013’s hot topics Commentary by Randy Sorrell Anticipation grows. Not just for spring, but for all things fueled by outdoor living. And, not just for any outdoor living, but luxury outdoor living. What are you anticipating this year when daylight grows and a walk in the park or a celebration on the patio is a visitor again? Here’s a stripped down glance of my anticipated trends and emerging topics for 2013 and beyond: • Appreciation of shade and the innovative mechanisms being created to protect ourselves continues to expand. You will be jazzed at what’s next. • Will the value of smart water use finally prompt a regional effort to manage our most valuable resource? Leadership is needed. • Everything good and healthy about outdoor living reaches a tipping point. Are we on the threshold of divorcing ourselves from our smart phones for more than a few minutes to appreciate nature? Want a happy family? Get outside! • Less is more and the appreciation of stylish simplicity gains momentum. Imagine the provocative implications for your backyard.

• Authentic new plant varieties that re-bloom with a color-riot, are massively fragrant, seldom need pruned or watered and make coffee in the morning. Natives or not. • The growth of getting real. Not every back yard should duplicate page 17 of your favorite paver catalog. Fresh design and real stone (travertine, limestone, bluestone) …”rocks.” Pun intended. • Interpreting reduced maintenance patios and landscapes. • More topics – weather extremes, crushed stone paths and patios, customization on the cheap, grill stations/alternatives and a twist on modern fire features. • And of course, what’s happening with the Kardashian’s. Follow me over the inspiring months ahead to explore several thrilling outdoor projects, detail the spirited trends of 2013 and anticipate the art, the value and the love of luxury outdoor living.

INSIDE & OUT Indoors

‘His and hers’ can create harmony Commentary by David Decker For couples, the idea of living together can seem exciting, romantic and adventurous. And it can be, unless you let everyday clutter get in the way. Arguments over space, messes and bad habits can sometimes get in the way of being able to enjoy each other’s company. Almost everyone has experienced these issues at one point, so I’m sure you all would agree that it’s no fun to argue about such nit-picky things. Since Valentine’s Day isn’t too far off, this might be the perfect time to start some home improvement projects intended to make your life as a couple happier. Even though you are sharing a home, no couple wants to share everything. That’s why the idea of “his and hers” comes in handy when organizing your home. Look for opportunities and design strategies that can separate your stuff from your partner’s. Let’s first take a look at strategies for the bathroom, a room that tends to get dirty quickly, be filled to the brim with products (ladies: I’m looking at you), and is overall a difficult place to share without occasionally butting heads. Here, I’d suggest installing a double sink unit complete with separate storage cabinets and drawers. These units can look luxurious while separating each person’s bathroom items. Storing toiletries in drawers will free up counter space, make the bathroom look more spacious and ensure that neither person feels crunched for storage. If your master bathroom is simply one large, open space, I’d also suggest installing some sort of privacy screen by the toilet, if you don’t have one already. Some men share a closet with their partner. Because of their convenience, his and her closets are becoming extremely popular in new homes. It’s possible to convert unused corner space into an extra closet, so this might be a weekend project you’d like to investigate. Another commonly shared room is the home office. If you feel that your office is too cluttered

or disorganized, it might be a good idea to invest in a few pieces of new furniture. Consider equipping the room with two small desks, instead of one. With two desks, you’ll have more storage possibilities and a separate workspace that’s all your own. Organize the odds and ends around using dual bookshelves or file cabinets. Bringing two separate lives together isn’t always easy. Luckily, smart home design can alleviate some of the most common squabbles.
