Relationships Communicating in kindness LEG PAIN, FOOT PAIN, OR NUMBNESS? COMMUNITY

Relationships by Doug Jeschke

A group of our friends were talking recently about how to make communication with others respectful and meaningful. That is, how do we speak to one another in a way that is more than just pleasantries, but to actually talk about issues that might help our relationships progress? It’s so easy to fall into a pattern of simply saying whatever comes to mind – and if they take it the wrong way, that’s their problem. Of course, the opposite strategy can occur as well – don’t say much of anything and no one will get offended. So in our conversation with our friends, one couple shared their approach to deciding when to share and when to be quiet. Their analysis consists of three questions: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? Most people limit their comments to things that are truthful. This is pretty straightforward. Whether it is necessary to say what is on your mind is a bit more complicated. It gets into questions of whether the benefit to be gained by airing out the issue outweighs the disruption that saying it might cause. But what I thought was the most interesting concept of this approach is the question of when does saying something, possibly hard to hear, qualify as kind? Does being a kind and loving person mean you should never say a word critical of another? I don’t think so. Certainly your approach can be kind and considerate when you are telling somebody you don’t care for something they did, or the way he or she approached an issue. Kindness also takes into consideration the history of the relationship – if I have a proven track record of being a true friend, I have a better chance of having what I need to say heard in a spirit of caring. But even beyond the atmosphere of how or when a critical but true and necessary comment is to be said, kindness to others flat out requires us to say the hard truths. Even if those truths are going to cause upset. If my wife is doing something that causes me grief, it would be unkind to keep it to myself – it makes our relationship suffer. If my friend is making poor choices, the kind thing is to address my concerns – even if doing so threatens to make our relationship rocky in the short term. I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes by Maggie Kuhn. She says, “Speak your mind. Even if your voice shakes.” Doug Jeschke is an attorney and mediator, providing divorce and other family mediation with Providence Mediation.

Cover Story

FISHERS IN NUMBERS $63,283,563 Town of Fishers’ budget for fiscal year 2012.

Traffic takes forefront in Fishers' 2012 agenda By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com Traffic is the target for 2012, said Fishers Town Council President Scott Faultless in his annual State of the Town event Feb. 15. Along with the completion of a $25 million improvement to 126th Street, this year will see work begin on a redevelopment to the Allisonville Road and 96th Street intersection, the first steps toward a corridor improvement at 135th Street and Ind 37 and installation of the state’s first Real-Time Signal System. The latter will be implemented between April and May, and is expected to result in a 10-17 percent drive-time reduction along 116th and 96th Streets and Allisonville Road, according to Faultless. The town is lobbying the state to allow it to install the system as far south as I-465, saying easing congestion at the interstate is critical to its overall traffic plans. The town will also petition INDOT for a new interchange along I-69 at 106th Street, Faultless said. The town hopes the interchange will alleviate traffic issues –more than 108,000 cars travel daily along that stretch of I-69 – and “unlock a huge area of commercial development that’s been stymied by lack of good access to I-69,” Faultless said.

Getting smart about traffic Fishers will invest $2.4 million – $2 million of it from an INDOT grant – into a first-in-the-state real-time traffic signal system. Officials estimate it could result in as much as a 10-17 percent reduction in drive times along Fishers’ busiest roads. Sensors in the pavement at intersections and “smart” cameras will monitor traffic into and out of chokepoints and augment signal change patterns to optimize vehicle flow.

Jerry Throgmartin It is our position our community lost a great leader recently with the passing of Mr. Jerry Throgmartin. The longtime hhgregg executive and Hamilton County resident was involved in a great number of boards and charities outside his own professional responsibilities. The time and resources Throgmartin provided to various causes has positively influenced many in our community. Aside from his successful time running hhgregg, Throgmartin was known for his work as chairman of the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center Development Board, a regular donator to the Shepherd Community Center and a board member of his alma mater, the University of Indianapolis. An avid horse enthusiast, Throgmartin and his wife purchased the Vista Verde Ranch in Steamboat Springs, Colo. Also a devoted family man, Throgmartin is survived by his wife, Peggy, a son and twin daughters, as well as two granddaughters. There is little doubt Throgmartin’s influence in our community stretched far, and he positively influenced a great number of individuals. His legacy will be felt for generations to come.

Commentary by Terry Anker

The never-ending “update” meeting has become the scourge of the modern reality. In a time where we are constantly notified, informed, educated and advised about the minutia of the daily routine of our family, coworkers and distant acquaintances, the once all-important get-together to put all of the players on the same page is becoming less enlightenment and more exasperation. So how do we keep our weekly routines from being administered by the Redundancy Dept. of Redundancy? Isn’t the key with keeping our routine meetings dynamic, as with many things, driven by preparation? Show up ready to do business. Work to bring greater depth to reports already shared and avoid simply restating what we’ve already expressed. Don’t we owe it to our fellow meeting-mates to keep the sessions lively?

darkened by a planned lengthy overhead presentation, even the most attentive listener can drift into naptime. We bob our heads. The almost uncontrollable need to doze reminds me of long family car trips as a kid. I’d get in the backseat – blanket in hand – ready to spend the time reading a good book or listening to Mom and Dad up front. But in moments, my eyes would lose focus and my mind would wonder. It was auto-induced narcolepsy, carpolepsy, I suppose. Perhaps waning attentions are a natural part of the modern meeting regimen. But, don’t we have an obligation to try to keep things moving?

Mr. Mom saves the day Commentary by Danielle Wilson

If you have the means to hire a manservant, I highly recommend it. In the words of Ferris Bueller, “It is so choice.” See, my husband recently switched jobs and now works from home, enabling him to take on many of my former stay-at-home mom responsibilities. For all intents and purposes, Doo is now Mr. Mom. At first, I thought his enthusiasm for laundry and dishes and other tedious chores would diminish after a few weeks. Sure he was happily sorting the whites and the darks initially, but I figured he’d have had his fill by the seventh or eighth load and I’d soon be finding mismatched pink athletic socks scattered like bomb debris on the living room floor. But to my surprise, almost two months later, he’s not only hanging in there, he’s actually doing a really good job. He’s had to call kids in sick, take them to orthodontist appointments, even nurse a child through an oral surgery which claimed seven teeth (and coordinate runs to CVS for the pain meds and Wendy’s for the prescribed post-op Frosty). He’s taken over the after-school carpool for our twins’ music practice, the tedium of bill paying and the mundane decision-making of helping four children get ready for school. As a working mom, I can’t tell you how

much stress and guilt having my husband at home has removed from my daily routine. I can leave in the morning knowing he will be there to handle the preschool chaos, and I can return knowing anything of major importance will have been dealt with. He does disappear into his office for a few hours each night, and I’m still the go-to parent for lunches, scheduling and parties, but the bulk of the homework and dinnertime crapola is now in the surprisingly capable hands of Doo. And so no one starts feeling sorry for the put-upon man slave, let it be known Doo is enjoying the new setup immensely. He’s using the time previously wasted in frustrating traffic and inane meetings to work out, tackle homeimprovement projects and improve his cooking skills. The whole arrangement truly has been a win-win situation for everyone. Which brings me back to my initial point, which is a manservant can solve all your problems. And if said manservant happens to be free and legally bound to you and your heirs, all the better. Peace out!

There are two aspects to child custody. The first is legal. Legal custody refers to the ability to have input on medical, educational, and religious issues pertaining to a child’s upbringing. Joint legal custody is appropriate in most cases unless there is a significant breakdown in communication between the parties. Generally, as long as the parents are able to communicate and cooperate with one another on decisions involving the child(ren) without a high level of conflict, joint legal custody will be ordered and the parents are required to consult one another before making any of these “major decisions.” The second aspect of custody is physical custody, which is much more often the subject of dispute. Simply stated, physical custody refers to where the children spend their time. As an initial matter, parents may create a unique schedule which satisfies the needs of their children and each other. Often, however, developing a parenting time schedule can be very challenging. When parties are unable to agree, the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines provide a parenting time schedule that gradually increases as the children age, provides for a division of holidays, and time with the children should one parent live a significant distance from the children’s primary residence. It should be noted, though, that the Guidelines represent a minimum amount of reasonable parenting time to be afforded to the non-custodial parent. Many Indiana Courts commonly award an involved, non-custodial parent parenting time in excess of the schedule provided in the Guidelines. People often feel the need to “have their day in court,” believing that if the judge hears “their side of the story” the custody order will be in their favor. However, in

evaluating whether to ask a judge to make a ruling on custody and parenting time, the parties would be well advised to keep in mind that time in court is limited, and it is difficult to present all of the information believed to be important. This is not to say that such conflicts which arise should not be litigated. However, once you proceed to court, the final decision is out of your hands. If parties are unable to reach an agreement, Indiana Courts will focus on the “best interest of the children” and in doing so will consider a number of factors in determining an appropriate custodial and parenting time arrangement. These factors include, but are not limited to, which parent has served as the primary caregiver; the child’s age and sex; the wishes of the child and the parties; the child’s relationship with each parent, siblings, and others; the child’s adjustment to their home, school, and community; and the mental and physical health of all involved. There are a number of benefits to reaching an out-of-court agreement, including but not limited to, allowance for non-traditional work schedules and flexibility for holidays. When parties are able to communicate and cooperate on these matters, it is a win-win for all involved.

‘To sleep, perchance to dream’ Commentary Dr. Roger Spahr This phrase, buried in the middle of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” finds its speaker in the middle of moral and mental anguish. Perhaps that, too, is you as you sprawl across your bed. Arms and legs akimbo with some parts buried in blankets, while other body parts peak out to prevent the “too hot” feelings that may engulf you at night. Researchers have learned poor sleep increases inflammation and can increase risks for depression, heart disease and cancer. Inflammation can cause fluid retention, weight gain, excessive cortisol and reduced immunity. So why do many people struggle with their sleep? These factors may be the answer. Don’t drink alcohol before bedtime. Although you may drift off, the processing in your liver of the alcohol occurs overnight. It interferes with the stages of sleep that help your body repair. Hence, you do not awaken refreshed. If you are a woman, it can compete with estrogen breakdown, and hot flashes may be what awaken you. Low blood sugars can result from alcohol and will surge your cortisols and adrenaline as you sleep. Stress before retiring. Newscasts might be informing, but they have been proven to start you thinking and you just can’t turn off. You stare worriedly at the ceiling. Bad news just got worse. Eating sugars and snacks that turn into sugar in the evening have a similar impact as alcohol, but without the other negative aspects of the alcohol. Chips and a soft drink, or pretzels and beer, are not the food of champions when it comes to sleep. A light protein snack works better.

Laura, Austin & Liam Walls

Room temperature between 65-72 degrees. Your body temperature drops at night. Taking a warm bath before retiring helps you drop you temperature naturally at night. If the room is too warm, you will awaken prematurely. Forced late nights. Whether you work swing shift or just have too many things to do, late nights disturb your rhythm. Your brain chemicals are confused with light from computer screens, big screen TVs and not to mention that last load of laundry that just HAS to be done. The problem is with multiples of these and other things, such as caffeine, we run our bodies and minds down, and then lose the ability to correct it ourselves. Don’t put up with sleep problems. Medication will only go so far. You have to identify the source, then the action plan to dream on. Dr. Roger Spahr is a board certified physician in family medicine who practices Functional Medicine with Ailanto Group. To reach Roger, write him at webmaster@ailanto.com.

Carmel doctor has new procedure for dealing with varicose veins By Darla Kinney Scoles • editorial@youarecurrent.com Varicose veins. No one wants them, but the millions who suffer with them endure pain, swelling, leg heaviness and even skin changes, including ulcers. When Linda Garrett of Kokomo had her varicose veins “stripped” 10 years ago, the process was extremely painful. The post-procedure swelling and restrictions made her hesitant to get help when she developed a blood clot due to vein failure in her other leg last year. Luckily for Garrett, medical advancements have brought a new – and better – way to deal with the problem. Referred to Dr. William Finkelmeier at VeinSolutions in Carmel, Garrett said she was hesitant to undergo the new VNUS Closure procedure offered there, but knew she had to better her situation. “Going in, I was scared to death,” she said. “When I got done, however, I walked right out of the hospital the same day. It was incredible.” Finkelmeier, who participated in the research that led to the procedure, said most patients have been in so much pain prior to the radiofrequency-powered catheter operation, they feel only minor discomfort in comparison post-surgery. “Most patients require no pain medication,” Finkelmeier said. “And they say the difference is like night and day. They have few complaints, and many return to work the next day, walking, biking and taking the stairs.” An avid walker, Katie Bolinger traveled from the Richmond area to undergo VNUS Closure in an effort to relieve her constant leg pain. Repairing both legs, one week apart, Bolinger resumed normal walking quickly. “Really, it was not like I thought it would be. I would never have guessed it was going to be so painless,” Bolinger said. “I would never hesitate to do it again.”

How it works – The VNUS Closure procedure is an outpatient treatment performed in the outpatient department of the hospital. Local, regional or general anesthesia may be used during the procedure. A thin catheter is inserted into the vein through a small opening, using only a single needle stick. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut. Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over and empty blood from the legs. As normal return flow is reestablished, your symptoms should improve noticeably. Following the procedure, the catheter is removed.

Starting to think about retirement? Investment by Adam Cmejla

Although most of us recognize the importance of sound retirement planning, few of us embrace the nitty-gritty work involved. With thousands of investment possibilities, complex rules governing retirement plans and so on, most people don’t even know where to begin. Here are some suggestions to help you get started. First, set lifestyle goals for your retirement. At what age do you see yourself retiring, and what would you like to do during retirement? If you hope to retire at age 50 and travel extensively, you’ll require more planning than other people. You’ll also need to account for basic living expenses, from food to utilities to transportation. Most of these expenses don’t disappear when you retire. And don’t forget you may still be paying off your mortgage or funding a child’s education well into retirement. Finally, be realistic about how many years of retirement you’ll have to fund. With people living longer, your retirement could span 30 years or more. The longer your retirement, the more money you’ll need. Don’t forget about two of the biggest (but most silent) obstacles of retirement planning: taxes and inflation. Both are present in any retirement plan, no matter the income, and both will have an adverse effect on a retirement plan if not taken into consideration Next, project your annual retirement income and see if that income will be enough to meet

your expenses. Identify the sources of income you’ll have during retirement, and the yearly amount you can expect to receive from each source. Common sources of retirement income include Social Security benefits, pension payments, distributions from retirement plans (e.g., IRAs and 401(k)) and dividends and interest from investments. An important question to ask is how will you take income from your investments and how much is a safe amount to withdraw to avoid running out of money? If you find your retirement income will probably meet or exceed your retirement expenses, you’re in good shape. If not, you need to take steps to bridge the gap. Consider delaying retirement, saving more money, spending less in retirement or taking more investment risk. This is just a starting point. The further you are from retirement, the harder it is to project your future income and expenses. However, if you’re getting to the point of retirement and you’re ready for more detailed planning, consult a financial professional. Everybody will retire at some point in the future. Make sure it’s the retirement you want to live, not the retirement you’re forced to live. Adam Cmejla is the president of Integrated Planning & Wealth Management, LLC, in Carmel.

Studies: Everyday chores can extend your life editorial@youarecurrent.com If the treadmill’s not your thing, no problem. Two studies indicate even mundane activities, such as doing chores, can tack on years to your life. The first study, from the National Institute on Aging, followed 302 healthy seniors for six years. The most active burned 2,611 calories daily, compared with just 1,766 for the least active group--and the constant movers were 70 percent more likely to be alive at the study’s end. The researchers found that for every 287 ad-

ditional calories the seniors expended each day, their mortality risk decreased 30 percent. The energy difference came from everyday busywork like cleaning, gardening and climbing stairs. In the second study, scientists from the University of Heidelberg in Germany tracked 791 people from their 20s into their senior years and discovered those who became more active in their 40s cut their risk of heart disease by nearly the same amount as those who had maintained a lifetime of activity. -www.prevention.com

Need a job? Online company could help editorial@youarecurrent.com Jobs may be hard to find for some working people in the U.S., but there is a brand new opportunity for senior women. A new online company, rentagrandma.com, is selling listings in its directory where other people may hire you. Rentagrandma.com claims this is a “revolutionary concept for quality domestic staffing needs.” “Every grandma is a mature woman who is only the most professional, experienced staff and meets the standards customers will demand for their own grandmas,” the company says in a news release. The company said its goal is to sign up 5,000 grandma workers in the first two months of 2012. Women using the site can advertise their services as nannies, chefs, pet sitters, tutors, personal assistants and more. They can also sell

items such as baked goods. There is a listing fee of $25, which the company says does not guarantee employment. However, it claims the amount of publicity it has received is helping many senior women find work. For more information, visit www.rentagrandma.com. And if purchasing a listing, try entering the promo code “Grandma.”

Investing in fixed income – Wells Fargo advises those investing in fixed income to diversify income streams. Look for opportunities in emerging-market debt as well as corporate and high-yield bonds that may offer yield cushion and capitalize on growth. Yield premiums in the emerging markets may offer opportunities for U.S. investors seeking diversification and enhanced income. In the U.S., Wells Fargo expects both investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds to perform well in the current environment of slowly improving economic growth and improving credit fundamentals. - MoneyWatch No screening needed? - In October, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force concluded that routine PSA screening does not save lives. This conclusion was based on five major clinical studies. The two largest, conducted in the U.S. and Europe, found the death rates of men who got the test were virtually the same as those who didn’t. The panel also concluded the PSA test leads to more tests and treatments that needlessly cause pain, impotence and incontinence in many men because most of the cancers detected are very slow-growing and unlikely to ever pose a threat. What many patients and even doctors don’t understand is that the PSA test is not a specific test for cancer. It’s a very sensitive test that can detect abnormalities, but it’s not designed to identify a particular problem.

Tale of an outdated document – Forbes contributor and financial planner Michael Chamberlain recently wrote about a widow who came into his office with a story from which everyone can learn. “Her husband ‘John’ went to school, got married, built a successful company, had three kids, got divorced, remarried and later died. The problem is that his Transamerica life insurance policy and his 401(k) retirement plan at Merrill Lynch listed his first wife as the primary beneficiary, not his kids or current wife. Guess who got these assets upon his passing?” -www. forbes.com

Aging eyes cause problems - The gradual yellowing of the eye’s lens and the narrowing of the pupil that occur with age disturb the body’s circadian rhythm, contributing to a range of health problems, recent studies suggest. As the eyes age, less and less sunlight gets through the lens to reach key cells in the retina that regulate the body’s circadian rhythm, its internal clock. Circadian rhythms are the cyclical hormonal and physiological processes that rally the body in the morning to tackle the day’s demands and slow it down at night, allowing the body to rest and repair. This internal clock relies on light to function properly, and studies have found that people whose circadian rhythms are out of sync, like shift workers, are at greater risk for a number of ailments, including insomnia, heart disease and cancer. -www.nyt.com www.youarecurrent.com

About twothirds of men with an elevated PSA don’t have cancer. They could have an inflamed or infected prostate (prostatitis). They could have a prostate gland that’s larger than normal (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH). Also, PSA levels normally increase with age. -www.bottomlinepublications. com

Do you need a flood policy? Insurance Q&A by Dena Shepherd Page Question from Nick T. of Carmel: Spring is right around the corner and it’s got me thinking about rising water. I’ve only lived here for a couple of years, but I live about half a mile from the river. Do I need a flood policy? Response from Dena Shepherd Page: Most of Hamilton County sits in a moderate-to-low risk area when it comes to flood risk (you can check your risk at www.floodsmart.gov). Preferred rate policies are the lowest premiums available through the National Flood Insurance Program. This policy will protect your house and its contents starting as low as $129 per year. It takes 30 days after purchase for a flood policy to take effect, so don’t wait until the water starts rising. The first thing you need to know about flood insurance is what the policy covers. A flood insurance policy will protect your property from flooding accompanying hurricanes, heavy rains and melting snows. A standard homeowners policy specifically excludes coverage for all these things. Some insurance carriers will add flood coverage with an endorsement to your homeowners policy, but usually you will have to purchase a separate policy. The other thing you need to know about flood insurance is what it doesn’t cover. Flood insurance doesn’t cover water that rises up through your plumbing. This type of loss is protected by using

an endorsement to your homeowners policy called sewer and drain backup. A loss from sewer and drain backup can be just as damaging as a flood loss. Sewer and drain backup coverage is a simple endorsement you may already have included on your homeowners policy right now. Standard coverage usually starts with limits of $5,000. If you have a finished basement, $5,000 is definitely not going to get you back to where you would like to be. We usually recommend upgrading coverage to $10,000 - $25,000 to make sure you are adequately covered. Higher limits are definitely available. The cost of this endorsement varies by carrier, but is usually a very low percentage of the total cost of your policy.  The steps you can take to prevent flood claims are pretty easy and you’re probably already doing them. First, make sure your sump pump is working and has an adequate battery-powered backup, in case it loses power. Next, make sure your gutters and downspouts are free and clear of debris and obstructions. Lastly, make sure your downspouts are getting water far enough away from the house that the water is not returning.

These stocks could collapse Netflix (NFLX) – Not long after Netflix brought back its DVD-only plan, Comcast (CMCSA) announced a streaming plan to take on Netflix. It didn’t take long for Netflix to lose more than $15 off the recent high. You could make the case the collapse has started already. We all know the issues with Netflix. Lack of profitability in 2012, billions in content obligations nobody is sure they can pay and an apparent lack of strategy from upper management. Netflix soared in early 2012, but with so many competitors expanding their reach or announcing new plans recently, it seems Netflix is doomed in the long run. We should know Netflix's fate in the next few quarters. Dendreon (DNDN) – Of course, you probably

could put any biotech on this list, as any disappointment will always sink the stock. But Dendreon is not just any biotech. It has been one of the most watched, traded and scrutinized biotech in recent years. So why is the company on my list? It is heavily reliant on Provenge. Dendreon reports earnings this week, and has three more reports coming during 2012. The company has widely missed earnings expectations in past quarters, and it’s unlikely to meet expectations four times out of four. Sales, earnings or Provenge will disappoint at some point. Dendreon will fall as a result. Dendreon has produced some lottery-ticket-like rewards in the past when things are good. - seekingalpha.com Carmel Arts & Design District

The home ‘Forever floors’ not a hard decision INSIDE & OUT

Remodling by David Decker Carpet may be the biggest overall seller in home flooring options, but hard surface floors are the favorite in trendy home improvements. Long-term wear, a fashionable look and dependable function lure homeowners to hard surface flooring. It is easier to clean, healthier in the house and easier to maintain than carpet or many of the popular, pliable and much more inexpensive linoleums. And while hard surface floors typically require a bit more cash up front, surfaces like wood, tile, stone, glass and laminates can be an ultimately economical “forever floor.” This flooring often pays for itself many times again. I’d be the first one to tell a customer trends should not govern a flooring decision. Utility, comfort, style preference and budget are the proper parameters. For example: Utility – Is the flooring for a high-traffic walkway area? Are there special needs in the home (wheel chairs, walkers, scooters, etc. … or asthma, allergies)? How much moisture (or spillage) will the floor need to endure? Comfort – Walking barefoot on soft bedroom carpeting is wonderful; walking barefoot on soggy bathroom carpeting is not. Are there noise or acoustic concerns from annoying echoes?

Style preference – Midwestern styles tend to lag a little bit behind big city trends, but I say, “So what?” The most important ingredient in making sure a customer is satisfied with a flooring decision is to provide professional flooring and design advice. Budget – Quite often, customers know they want new flooring before they know what it will cost, and that’s OK. Needs, wants, and affordability form a triangle that develop best when customers know their finances, and the home improvement professional knows flooring. It’s not hard to remember styles and trends come and go, but a good flooring decision can last (almost) forever. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring. They are based in Carmel (317-595-9540, www. the-affordablecompanies.com). Email home improvement questions to david.decker@ the-affordablecompanies.com.
