Fishers High school wins Pasta Bowl By Nancy Edwards • news@currentinfishers.com Students from Fishers High School have been awarded for their spirit of giving once again for donating the most amount of education pasta in a recent campaign to help Second Helpings, a nonprofit community kitchen based in Indianapolis. The mission for the center is to transform lives through the power of food. Representatives from FHS were recently given a trophy at a basketball game between FHS and HSEHS for helping to fight hunger. The school donated 1,600 pounds of elbow macaroni and spaghetti, which provides enough starch for several months, according to Betsy Whitmore, communications director for Second Helpings. “It was a lot of fun to stand at center court to say thank you and award a nice trophy to Fishers High School for doing so much work,” Whitmore said. HSEHS and FHS provided collection bins for fans to donate boxes of pasta at the annual Mudsock Game, a football game held in August.. “This is the largest pasta drive in the world involving high school students,” said John DeLucia, a member of the Hamilton Southeastern School Board. “It’s a lot of fun, the competition is good and healthy (between schools). “Of all the schools that have been involved, Fishers High School has been the one that ‘gets it’ the most,” he continued. “That starts with FHS Principal Jason Urban’s leadership and encouragement of their students to look beyond themselves. Mark Pierson (teacher at FHS) did an

incredible job as the point person this year. He really got the key students involved early.” Pierson attributed the success of Pasta Bowl to the students. “The students were given the freedom to create ways of collecting pasta and create ways of re-creating Mr. DeLucia’s passion to be accepted throughout the student body,” Pierson said. “They were empowered to do something significant and they ran with it. It was awesome to watch them work and come together as an organization for such a great cause.” Organizations involved included Trensy, Delaware Township Trustees Office, Fall Creek Township Trustees Office, Graham Rahal Foundation, Citizens State Bank, Come to Me Food Pantry, and Saint Louis de Monfort Sally Burton Food Pantry. Second Helpings also provides culinary job training for disadvantaged adults. For more information, visit http://www.secondhelpings.org/ about-us.

It is good to wonder Commentary by Heather Kestian My son, his best friend and I recently had the opportunity to visit the Indianapolis Children’s Museum to listen to Dr. David plain talk Wolf speak about his travels to space. It was an amazing time! Space and our universe fascinate my son. For Christmas, my oldest received a package of books about the planets, our sun, and solar system. Naturally, when I saw the notice that Dr. Wolf would be speaking, we immediately reserved our tickets to go. After arriving home from our adventure, we were watching the news when my son realized that we were on television. “Mama! Look, I’m on the news! Wait, Mama, that’s YOU! Mama, that’s my friend! That is us, together!” I wish I had a picture of him jumping up and down as he watched television because he was completely amazed at what he was seeing. Our trip to the Children’s Museum was a great time to reinforce some of our core beliefs for our family. First, our children can do and be anything they want if they are willing to put in the required work. Second, the people in our life are important. Some people may come and go, while others may stick around. If you want them to be

around for a long time, you have to show them that they matter. I have to believe that my kids can be anything they want to be—even an astronaut. Some people think I am crazy for saying that. They gently remind me that ‘not every kid can be an astronaut.’ That may be true; however, my kids will not hear that from me. It is my job to help them dream. We need dreamers. We need thinkers. It is our duty to cultivate our little people. I am incredibly thankful to have had my son’s best friend along for the trip. They both asked great questions of Dr. Wolf, like “How do you use the potty in space? How fast do you have to go to get to space?” You know, six-year old boys have serious questions, especially when you put them together to come up with a list of questions. The people in our lives, for better or worse, whether long term or temporary, are the best part of our existence. I hope they have many years of memory building ahead of them and more opportunities for good press. They are, after all, excellent material. Heather Kestian is a Fishers resident and mother. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism, as well as a master’s degree in education. Her family moved to Fishers in 2010.

Brewery bus tours locally

By Nancy Edwards • news@currentinfishers.com Those looking for a creative way to spend an evening with friends, celebrate a birthday or enjoy a bachelor party may want business to check out The BrewsLine. New to Hamilton County, The Brewsline is an educational, yet fun, guided bus tour that takes groups of up to eight people to several breweries in the area, including Barley Island, Bier Brewery, Triton Brewing Company, Carmel Upland Brewing Company, Union Brewing Company, and Brooks & Brews. Fishers resident Darryl Sopoci, 52, began this innovative idea after touring breweries as a hobby while traveling around the country. “I’ve been a fan of craft beer before it was fashionable,” he said. As Sopoci began to notice a growing interest in craft beer among Hamilton County residents, he decided that the area could use a touring bus so that people could have the convenience of touring local breweries locally as opposed to driving to downtown Indianapolis to hop a bus. “As I talk to people about the concept, they say ‘We’ve been waiting for this,’” Sopoci said. Tours begin as the bus picks up guests at a locally designated spot. Guests are dropped off and picked up at the breweries, where they sample three to four tastings of their current brews. While riding the bus, guests learn trivia about the brewing companies they tour. The event’s

purpose is education and enjoyment. At the end of the tour, guests are brought back to their pick-up location. Drinks purchased at breweries are allowed on the bus and may be stored in a cooler. Tickets, at $35 per person, may be purchased online at www.brewsline.com. It’s recommended to purchase tickets a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Private tours may be booked by calling 661-1334 or by email at brewsline@gmail.com. Sopocci said he welcomes feedback. So far, guests seem to be having a good time. “It’s always nice when patrons hug you at the end of the tour,” Sopoci said.

Conner Prairie hosts art exhibit By Holly Kline • news@currentinfishers.com Conner Prairie and the Fishers Arts Council have joined forces to present “Fishers Art in Town Hall Retrospective.” Works by art local artists will be on display in Conner Prairie’s second floor Atrium Gallery through the end of May. Conner Prairie is glad to collaborate with the Fishers Arts Council on this project that gives local artists who have previously exhibited at the Fishers Town Hall the opportunity to showcase their works in an additional venue. “All of the artists that are here have previously exhibited at the Art in Town Hall,” said Chris Petrelli, Director of Programs and Education at Conner Prairie. “Fishers Art Council really helped curate for the exhibit we have featured in our atrium.” Fishers artists Pamela Newell and Jerome Chambers are two of the artists who are featured at Conner Prairie. Newell is known for impressionistic style paintings while Chambers creates a wide variety of original paintings, photography and fine art prints. The Fishers Arts Council is honored to feature them in Conner Prairie’s exhibit. “Conner Prairie’s retrospective exhibit welcomes visitors to see a sampling of the artwork of some of these featured artists and celebrate their talent and diversity,” said Jocelyn Vare, President of the Fishers Arts Council. “The community benefits from this retrospective celebra-

tion because it reinforces the truth that public art is valued in Fishers.” Both Vare and Petrelli are quick to point out the community benefits from the collaboration between Conner Prairie and the Fishers Arts Council. “This collaboration between Conner Prairie and Fishers Arts Council is indicative of the collaborative approach that the entire Fishers community has in regards to local arts and programs,” Vare said. “Art provides the community and its residents something to be proud of and embrace.” “Part of Conner Prairie’s mission is to serve the community,” said Petrelli. “We are continually looking for ways to collaborate with local government, schools and organizations.” Conner Prairie plans to present more exhibits in the future. “This is a new exhibit space that throughout the years ahead will feature additional art,” said Petrelli. “We’ll not only showcase local art but art in general.”

Brooks speaks to Rotary

Launching ... again

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com On March 7, fifth district U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Ind.) paid a visit to the Fishers Rotary and talked about the problems politics facing our nation and our community, and updated the members on what kinds of things she has been involved in during her first year in Congress. Brooks serves on the Education and Workforce, Homeland Security and Ethics Committees and is the Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response and Communications. That subcommittee is concerned with the emergency preparedness level of our communities. She noted that Fishers Fire Chief Steve Orusa testified at a hearing of first responders. Brooks told the crowd of approximately 100 that the number one issue her office receives mail and phone calls about concerns the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. She said besides the rollout and website problems, another major issue is the deeming of 30 hours of work per week as full time. She says that is causing businesses to cut back on workers’ hours including school systems. “I’ve heard from the Hamilton county school superintendents that they cut teachers aids, school bus drivers, and coaches because these insurance premiums and healthcare costs were not counted on in their budgets in the past. They can’t afford it,” she said. Brooks is launching an initiative that connects

business sectors with the classroom. The first sector involves the agriculture business because, as she pointed out, there are so many ag-related businesses in her district, including Dow, Pioneer and Red Gold. Brooks also talked about restoring the nation’s fiscal standing and doing it in a way that doesn’t bring the nation to the brink of a government shutdown again, which she said was a low-point for Congress. “A Lot of people have lost faith in congress. We have about a 9% approval rating. We recognize that.” Jokingly, she said she didn’t know which was worse to introduce herself as; a Congresswoman or a lawyer. She also told the crowd that the Indiana delegation does a great job of working together in a bipartisan way and she meets with Democratic Rep. Andre Carson, with whom she shares a district, on a regular basis. “I do believe in reaching across the aisle and working with the other side,” she said.

Hamilton Southeastern School Board members in discussion on March 10. (Photo by Ann Craig-Cinnamon)

Board approves next phase of HSE 21 By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com On March 10, during its regular meeting, the Hamilton Southeastern School Board approved a bond issue to pay for the pureducation chase of iPads for the third phase of the HSE 21 initiative. The six- year program has a goal of getting iPads into the hands of all students in the school district. This phase is for fifth and sixth graders. The first phases involved equipping all teachers with iPads for professional development. Future phases will involve grades seven-12 and elementary school students. The school district buys iPads for students whose parents do not want to buy or supply one and then rents the devices to them, much like a textbook. The district surveyed parents and found that one-third already owned

iPads that they would allow their child to use in school, another one-third would buy one, and the final third would rather rent one. The board was also updated on the status of a new mobile website that will be rolled out sometime around spring break for all the schools. The mobile site will not be an app, but will be accessible through the browser of iPhones and Android smartphones. The goal is to make it easy for parents to get updates on happenings at their child’s school. Another issue discussed at the March 10 session was that of snow makeup days for noncertified school district employees. That refers to food service workers, bus drivers, custodial help, building secretaries and instructional assistants who will be offered extra workdays to make up for all the hours lost due to bad weather.

Fishers residents are welcome to attend an upcoming public open house to learn specifics regarding the Fishers Train open house Station project and offer ideas for space usage. The enhanced train platform and pedestrian plaza will include ticket windows, public restrooms and improved ADA accessibility, in addition to plaza seating and bike racks. The platform will also accommodate future mass transit needs. “The Parks Department couldn’t be more excited about this plaza,” said Tony Elliot, Parks & Recreation director. “The opportunities to activate this space are endless, and residents can help us develop programming by telling us how they plan to use it.” The $28 million mixed-use project was passed last month in a 5-2 vote by Fishers Town Council, however, public reaction was met with strong opposition from residents. Some were concerned with the historical significance of the 18-year-old train station, while others worried about the potential for a traffic nightmare. Pete Peterson, vice president of Fishers Town Council, urged residents to attend the open house to learn the facts of the project. “I think there’s a bit of a misunderstanding (about project specifics) and some political motivation,” Peterson said. The event was originally to be held in the

Town Hall auditorium on March 25, but the location was changed to the Hamilton Southeastern High School varsity gym in order to accommodate what is expected to be a large crowd. Town officials, project developers and community organizations will be present to discuss the project, answer resident questions and collect feedback. The open house begins at 6:30. “The residents of Fishers have asked for a vibrant, walkable downtown and we have made great strides towards developing the Nickel Plate District,” said Scott Fadness, Fishers town manager. “The train station plaza is an important piece of the puzzle, and we look forward to hearing from the residents what they would like to see in the new space.” Construction of the 3 ½ acre site will begin this summer and finish next year.

Ads in school Commentary by Larry Lannan

We are all bombarded with advertising messages wherever we go. Technology has had a hand in this. perspective Most popular web sites are packed with ad messages. I was in a Washington DC taxi and there was a small screen in the back seat with a constant loop of video marketing messages. The ad agencies are always looking for new eyes and ears to receive their clients’ messages. There is a new marketing campaign that will soon begin in Fishers. The Hamilton Southeastern Schools will install charging stations for students to plug-in their electronic equipment, such as cell phones. The school system will sell ad space through a contractor at these charging stations. The ad revenue will pay for a new social media marketing campaign, allowing the school corporation to better-explain its views on issues, such as a school referendum and why they are now necessary with the state’s method of school funding. The program will also feature individual staff members at HSE schools working on important programs. I may be a bit old fashioned, but it troubles me that the school system must expose our local students to even more marketing messages than they are receiving now. HSE students, par-

ticularly at the high school and junior high levels, are prime targets for ad campaigns. Most studies show we all form our brand loyalties at a very young age. If you acquire a preference for one cola drink over another in your formative years, you are much more likely to stay with that cola brand as you emerge into adulthood. That’s what bothers me about the school system being forced to use advertising to fund their social media marketing campaign. I want to be very clear on one point. I do not blame the local school system It is my view the school system should be able to find the money within its own budget to finance a social media campaign if that’s the decision of our local school board. However, with the school corporation in the process of finding 5% savings in the budget over the next two school years, there is no money to fund such a program. So students will get bombarded with yet more ad campaigns, this time within their school building. If the Indiana lawmakers funded our public schools adequately, there would be no need for marketing campaigns in the schools.

Stronger every day New YMCA program helps cancer survivors gain strength and confidence By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com When you enter the Fishers YMCA on East 126th St., the first thing you notice is the sound of life. There’s a sense of hustle and bustle, a low din of noise of people moving cover story from one place to another with workouts in progress and physical stimulation. The other thing you notice is a big sign that reads, “YMCA Mission : ‘To put Christian principles into practice through programs that help healthy spirit, mind and body for all.’ It’s that mission that has led the YMCA to partner with the national LiveSTRONG organization and offer a unique, tailored program for cancer survivors. The new “LiveSTRONG at the Y” program is being offered in just 3 YMCA’s in the Indianapolis area and the Fishers Y is one of them. After first testing out a pilot program with eight cancer survivors, the Fishers Y began its first fullFishers YMCA fledged class of 9 survivors and 2 9012 E 126th St. caregivers in February. The class meets twice a week Fishers, IN 46038 for 90 minutes for 12 weeks. The Phone - 595-9622 participants in the current program range in age from 15 to 85 and are all at different stages of their diagnosis and treatment. Several are breast cancer survivors, one has a brain-related cancer and 3 of them have had stem cell transplants. They are referred to the program by organizations such as Cancer Support Community, a cancer support group, and area hospitals, particularly St. Vincent Hospital, which underwrites a large part of the cost. Marion Fowler, the Senior Sports and Family Director and the LiveStrong program coordinator says, for the survivors, the program is about reclaiming their bodies. “Most everyone who participates has lost confidence in what their body can do and in their body. We’ve got folks that have never worked out in their life, and we’ve got folks that used to run marathons and now they’re trying to see how far they can push their bodies. The program tries to meet them where they are”, says Fowler who adds, “It gives them a little bit of reclamation. They reclaim what they thought either was completely gone or they wished that they had but were so scared to get there. It gives them confidence.” That confidence is gained in several ways. There is the physical side of the program that is akin to physical therapy in that the participants are taught to use workout equipment in targeted and customized ways. But it is different from physical therapy in that it’s an independent system and the instructors are only there to lead the class. Another way confidence is gained is through the social interaction provided by the program which Fowler thinks is one of the most important components. “The social part is probably one of the hidden gems of the whole process. In this group, we’re finding that support group is not what they are seeking. But they are seeking similar companionship. So you’ll notice folks that have similar cancer basis gravitate together even in the workout room … like an informal workout program,” said Fowler. Grace Leon, the 15 year old member of this group, agrees that the interaction with other members of the program is very important to her. “Right now I’m doing online classes. I’m no longer in

school. So it’s helping me get out of the house. Although I’m the youngest person here, it’s easy to relate to everyone. So I think it’s kind of nice just having social interaction. And the last couple of months I haven’t been feeling as well as I normally would, so it’s kind of nice to have people who know what I’m going through, be-

cause most people my age haven’t had cancer and gone through treatments,” she said. Melanie Scott, 32, is one of the stem cell transplant patients and agrees that the LiveSTRONG at the Y program is making a huge difference for her. “This program has been an absolute blessing. I had, I guess they call it, muscle atrophy in medical terms. In my non medical terms I couldn’t walk, talk or move anymore. When you have a transplant, they literally kill you and then bring you back to life. I was in the hospital for 3 months. So the most I could do was walk with a walker to get to my porta potty. That wasn’t really using the walker, it was mostly holding on to my bed. So I needed a program like this because I was a very active person prior to all this happening. Their program is so unique that you can track your progress,” said Scott, whose transplant last July came from the donation of a living baby’s umbilical cord. There will be more classes rolled out soon and participants do not have to join the YMCA to take part in the program which only costs $25. Fowler says “LiveSTRONG at the Y” fits the mission of the YMCA which is why he is excited to be a part of it. “This has allowed me to experience that mission in full swing. Connecting with these folks has been the highlight of my time here at the Y. And I’ve been here nearly 10 years”.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Guess who has office hours now We have written a decent amount since founding this newspaper about Launch Fishers. It’s a sterling idea whose time had come when it was founded and it’s evermore so today. Which is why you’ll find Ann CraigCinnamon, our new Current in Fishers managing editor, holding down a desk there – when she’s not out in the community digging up stories or attending events. Please stop by and visit with her, share your ideas, tips, concerns and – Oh, why not? – compliments. The initiative was born as a collaborative effort between the Town of Fishers and entrepreneur John Wechsler, and it has grown dramatically in the last year-plus. Innovative startups live there. That’s the environment Ann wanted to be a part of, and so we and Launch made it happen. It just makes sense for a high-energy business (ours) to be associated with that ilk in day-to-day operations. Check Ann’s availability at ann@youarecurrent.com. ••• You might recall from previous tomes that we place a premium on research, and so it was with great interest that we read last week’s Wall Street Journal/NBC poll results. They pointed out that the overall electoral milieu for Democrats is worse than it was in 2010, when the Republicans had their best midterm performance since Harry S. Truman was president. President Barack Obama’s jobapproval rating is at an all-time low of 41 percent. While Western Europe is at risk, among other crisis issues, Obama was playing golf. Of course he was. One other point: The poll respondents were divided on Obamacare, with 49 percent saying (as we have) that it’s a bad idea, and 39 percent saying it was a good idea. The bottom line here: The Republicans will find a way to screw up the advantage. Bank on it. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC.

FROM THE EDITOR Fishers YMCA lives up to mission

An emotional rescue

Commentary by Terry Anker

As the discussion about public transportation continues in our fair communities, we are encouraged to think about our own habits and how we might make individual use of such amenities were they to become available. Would we ride busses? Would we ride trains? Would we ride monorails or planes? Kidding aside, the idea of having someone else do the driving can be very appealing. In some places around this planet, our fellow humans move collectively about quickly, affordably and in high comfort. Yet for reasons that we don’t fully understand, our desire to be entirely independent and unrestricted stymies our support for what, in many ways, would be a superior approach to personal locomotion. For many, air travel is the form of mass-transit most prevalent – there is little or no other service that corresponds with our homes or offices. It is an amazing feat that one can be transported in a few hours from one place to another safely and with minimal effort. Still, it

requires that we get out of our individual automobiles and share our space with strangers. And for many, this is a challenge – the release of control can be surprisingly emotional. But why is it so difficult? Most of us don’t know how to fly a jumbo jet and reason proves that the risk of peril in driving ourselves across country is far greater to our life and limb. Long lines, fights for overhead bin space, and cancelled flights are often blamed. But empirically compared to the alternatives, is our rational decision-making clouded an overwhelming desire to maintain perceived control? So how does a reasonable thinker seek balance in the discourse? Can we find our way to release some control to gain many other advantages? And even if we can, will we? Is there an emotional rescue?

If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.

- John Irving

I met an amazing group of people the other day at the Fishers YMCA. They are all cancer survivors enrolled in a program that helps them get their life back. It’s part of the national LiveStrong program that a lot of YMCA’s are participating in across the nation. Several of these survivors have had stem cell transplants, which is something I didn’t even know was being performed. I don’t pretend to understand the science or medicine involved, but the results are pretty astounding. It’s our cover story this week and it concerns not only an organization like the YMCA offering a program such as this, but also the courage and bravery it takes for people who faced death to fight their way back. By the way, the Fishers YMCA is a busy, vibrant community treasure. The plan to demolish the Fishers Train Station continues to stir up talk in the community. We have a guest columnist this week that is involved in the plan and has a perspective to present on it. You’ll get your chance to speak up about what you’d like to see in a new development at the site. There’s an open house coming up and we have a story about that, too. U.S Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN5) gave the Fishers Rotary an update on Congressional action (and inaction) this past week. We let you know what she thinks about the hot topics of our day. And Launch Fishers has been so successful that it’s going statewide. We tell you about that this week, too. In the meantime, if there’s something happening in Fishers that everyone would be interested in, let me know! Or if there is someone making a difference in our community, introduce them to me. Maybe you have an opinion about something we wrote. Let me know. I want to hear from you! Ann Craig-Cinnamon s is the managing editor of Current in Fishers. You may e-mail her at ann@youarecurrent.com

BELIEVE IT! Our nation has all sorts of arcane, nonsensical laws on the books. Each week, we’ll share one with you. In Blairstown, N.J., no street-side trees may be planted that “obscure the air”.

Editor, I wanted to let you know how disappointing your March 11th Current magazine article on Division 1 athletes was. I, along with my husband, were Division 1 athletes at Indiana University in Bloomington. Never once did we come across any kind of misdoings as Gabou mentioned in her article. We had top notch athletes, coaches, & trainers. While participating in our respected sports, we never heard of anyone getting pregnant, STD’s, improper coach relationships, eating disorders or playing while teammates were hung over. I am not sure what college Gabour attended or what kind of people she surrounded

It’s time for my quarterly New Year’s Resolutions check-in, people, where I evaluate my progress towards fulfilling my humor goals for 2014. You may recall I am attempting to become HungerGames worthy. I want to achieve ripped arms and crock-pot expertise, in addition to learning how to hunt, shoot and power whistle. Unfortunately, I’m not progressing as quickly as I’d hoped. For instance, every time I practice obnoxious catcalling, I nearly pass out. This does not play well while I’m navigating the construction on 31 in my minivan. So I’ve had to limit my sessions to those rare moments when I am not driving to dance, tumbling, soccer, track, tae kwon do, jazz band or volleyball. Given that whistling lies on one of the lowest rungs of my daily to-do ladder (somewhere between scrubbing toilets and shop-vacing air vents), I’d estimate I devote about thirty seconds every three weeks to mastering this annoyingly-difficult trick. Cooking my way through “Crock-Pots & You” has also proved challenging. For one thing, most of the dishes take only four hours. If I throw all the ingredients in before I leave for work in the morning, by five o’clock that evening, the meal though savory - is essentially mush. This is fine if I’m trying for soup, but not so good if I want a Parmesan Crusted Chicken. Nevertheless, as my

commitment to cutting Box Tops approaches fullon addiction (I love finding them on every highsodium, preservative-laden box of food I serve), I’ve decided to keep the crock-potting. Next up, Meatball Madness! Hunting is on hold until the fall when it becomes legal again to fire weapons at deer. So technically I’m still on course to meet that goal. I’d like to say the same for the handgun, but my only excuse for not learning to shoot is pure laziness. I’ve located a range that offers classes, and I’ve even convinced my mother-in-law to come along for the ride, but I have yet to . . . well . . . pull the trigger. Damn, I’m funny! (Cussing less is not one of my promises.) As for doing 20 “real” push-ups, I’m feeling confident. In fact, I could probably drop and give you eleven right now if I weren’t so light-headed from some recent whistling practice. With warm weather approaching, however, I’m highly motivated to meet this declaration. At least more motivated than I am to slow-cook Knockwurst Surprise. Hope your New Year’s resolutions are going better than mine are! Peace out.

Joe Cashore fills his shows with a variety of stories, each told using different hand-made marionettes. (Submitted photos)

Marionette master brings magic to stage

By Pete Smith • pete@youarecurrent.com

Since the theatres of the Center for Performing Arts first opened to the public, a wide variety of shows and performTheatre ers have wowed audiences. But audiences are in for a rare treat the weekend of March 22 when artist Joe Cashore brings his marionette show to the Tarkington stage. Cashore has dedicated most of his career to perfecting the ancient artform, even building his own creations and manipulating them with a system only he knows how to use – all in the hope of giving an audience a taste of real magic. It wasn’t without reason that Disney chose the story of Pinocchio, the puppet who wanted to become a real boy, when it wanted to create some movie magic in one of its earliest animated movies. But in an age of digital visual effects, it’s easy to forget what made things magical in the first place. But watching an inanimate object suddenly spring to life with perfect human movements can certainly have that effect. Cashore’s performances feature a series of short pieces, each with its own theme. “Some of them are serious, some are humorous, some are emotionally challenging,” he said. The full-length performance on March 22 is recommended for adults and children older than eight; the matinee the following day contains pieces that were performed the day before, but the show is shorter and suitable for adults and children six and older.

That’s because there’s very little dialogue during the performance, and music is necessary to convey the mood and emotions – but it also requires a quiet audience to make the illusion real. “Sometimes it takes a long time to find the right music,” Cashore said. He often uses classical music in his performances, but he also has built pieces around an existing work of music or even commissioned compositions to match a particular idea for a show. Cashore said the combination of the music and the expressiveness of his marionettes has a unique quality. His favorite compliment that he ever received was: “A guy came up after a show and said, ‘You know, looking at this opened a part of my brain

that I didn’t know I had.’” Cashore’s stories are all based on his observations of people. He begins by story-boarding an idea, and then he eliminates everything that doesn’t express the point of the piece. No movement is wasted. “If you keep it focused, it’s more powerful,” he said. Cashore has also built more than 150 marionettes, but he only works with his 15 best. He studied fine arts in school, worked for a while as a painter and carpenter, and then decided to pursue performance art as a fulltime career in the 1980s. So it wasn’t a technical ability he had to master, it was more that he had to overcome a sense of shyness. “It was hard to step out on stage at first. I felt like I was hiding behind the marionettes,” he said. “But I’ve done it so much it’s no longer a problem.” And his shows that focus on the richness of life and its possibilities have taken him to every state except the Dakotas, and all over Canada, Europe and Asia. But this performance will be his first in Carmel, and he hopes people will take the opportunity to come watch something different. “The show is fun,” he said. “People will enjoy it. They really will.” Cashore Marionettes • “Life in Motion” at 7 p.m. March 22 • “Simple Gifts” at 3 p.m. March 23 • The Tarkington Theatre at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel • Tickets start at $15 • For more information visit www.cashoremarionettes.com

lIvE MUSIC

IWS to feature folksongs By Chris Bavender • editorial@youarecurrent.com The music of composer Percy Granger will be featured as the Indiana Wind Symphony takes center stage with guest tenor Ken music Knowles on March 22 for “Folksong Fantasia.” “Usually the way I plan a concert is I decide on a couple of big works we want to do and then I think, OK, is there any connection that we can form a theme,” said symphony conductor Charles Conrad. “In this case, with the songs form the Catskills, there is based on folk songs. We’ve not done a concert with that theme.” That led Conrad to immediately contact Knowles. “Right away I wanted to get him involved because he is such a terrific singer of folk songs,” Conrad said. “He is such a Carmel fixture and has sung with us maybe a dozen times.” And the concert will feature an interesting twist – playing old recordings Granger compiled of folk singers when he put together a piece called “A Lincolnshire Posy.” “A lot of his music came from that treasure trove, and we have those songs and before we play the six we will play a bit of that (recordings) to give people an idea of the flavor of what it sounded like to Granger,” Conrad said. “I hope it will be exciting. It will be a little odd sounding because of the age of the technology but it will be interesting to hear the old recordings but

Singer David Phelps to play classics By Chris Bavender • editorial@youarecurrent.com

WHERE I DINE

Covering everything from Dolly Parton to Luciano Pavarotti, singer David Phelps is bringing his soulful tune to the Zionsville music Performing Arts Center on March 20. Hailing from Texas, Phelps studied classical music at Baylor University and now calls a farm in Nashville, Tenn., home. “My style is very eclectic,” Phelps said. “I’m a little hard to pin down.” Phelps said he doesn’t put his music under one genre, because he loves to sing Gospel, country, adult contemporary, and classical. He is currently on tour promoting his latest album, Classic, released in 2012. “Everything in the show is family oriented,” Phelps said. Celebrated as the tenor in the Grammy-awardwinning Gaither Vocal Band, Phelps said he is most well-known for his unique vocal style and ability to sing in high tessitura for a long time. Phelps’ Classic album allowed him the opportunity to work on his first solo project with close friend and mentor, Bill Gaither. The song selection for the album took more than a year, and brought Phelps immense joy. “It was a great confidence builder that Bill put so much trust in me,” Phelps said. With the accompaniment provided by a full band and background vocalists, the Classic in

Compression socks a tool for athletes Commentary by Dr. Jeffery Schoonover If you watched races or triathlons recently, you may have noticed many athletes wearing knee high compression socks fitness or calf sleeves. To understand why even amateur athletes are wearing these socks and sleeves, it’s helpful to review the circulatory system. Blood circulates through our bodies via a network of vein and arteries. It is a closed system so that blood pumped from the heart to the legs must be moved back up through the system to the heart. The calf muscle pumps venous blood against the force of gravity when we are walking or running. It’s well known that medical grade compression stockings improve blood flow by helping the calf muscle pump more effectively, which helps keep blood from pooling in the legs. These stockings have been used for years with patients after surgery, to treat leg swelling and for varicose and spider veins. Now, there is growing evidence that athletic compression stockings may reduce soreness after a race. Post-event muscle pain can occur for several reasons: lactic acid build-up, microtrauma at the muscle fiber level, electrolyte

depletion and a release of prostaglandins (inflammatory chemicals released during and after exercise). Compression is believed to reduce the muscle pain because the micro-trauma can be lessened and the calf muscle pump increased, which clears out lactic acid and prostaglandins more effectively. What is less clear is the benefit of wearing them during a race. There are no definitive studies that show the benefit of use during the event. We do advise athletes with varicose vein disease to wear compression stockings during events to increase the calf muscle pump function while reducing ankle swelling and venous pooling. For athletes without varicose vein disease, there may be a benefit to wearing athletic compression stockings after an event to help with recovery. Indiana Vein Specialists is a proud sponsor of the Carmel Marathon Weekend. Join us at the event’s Fitness Expo on April 11 at the Monon Center. Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D., FAAFP, RVT, RPVI, practices with the Indiana Vein Specialists, 11876 Olio Road, Suite 700, Fishers. He can be reached at 348-3023. For more information, visit www.indyveins.com

IU Health and Luck team up news@youarecurrent.com

Six Hamilton Southeastern schools are part of a statewide health, fitness and nutrition program called “Change the Play”. The wellness effort teams Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. In all, 30 schools around the state are involved in the initiative. Change the Play kicked off last April with an eight-week challenge that families could tackle at home. Now, it’s rolling out in select classrooms of schoolchildren ages 5 to 14. This pilot program is just the beginning: Change the Play will be made available to all Indiana schools this fall. For the next eight weeks, students will be encouraged to improve their own physical activity levels, while increasing their knowledge of nutrition and good health behaviors. Each weekly challenge is packed with motivational tips and insights from Riley at IU Health physicians, dietitians, sports performance coaches and Luck himself. Challenge topics range from teaching the importance of staying hydrated and building

strength to developing coping skills for dealing with everyday stress. “Our aim is to give kids a fun, motivating game plan for healthy living that they can build upon throughout their lives,” said Dr. Jeff Sperring, Riley at IU Health president and CEO. “Because health and education are so strongly linked, schools will be vital partners in this effort.” Upon completion of all eight weekly challenges, 20 students from each participating school district will be invited to Indianapolis for an action-packed Field Day celebration, hosted by Luck and Riley at IU Health. The April event will take place on the very field where Luck and his Colts teammates practice. Hundreds of kids are expected to attend. Change the Play, a minimum four-year partnership, will continue to advance its mission in 2014, through sports performance camps led by Luck and with fresh challenges in the fall. Hamilton Southeastern schools participating in the pilot program include Cumberland Road Elementary, Fall Creek Elementary, Fishers Junior High, Harrison Parkway Elementary, Hoosier road Elementary and Riverside Junior High.

The Individual Retirement Account is the Titanic of most peoples’ retirement plan — it typically tends to be their biggest asset finance at retirement. But there are a number of issues that can occur that are not advantageous to investors if proper planning and monitoring are not done. Let’s highlight five areas where we’ve seen mistakes occur: Not taking your required minimum distribution The IRS requires you to start taking out a portion of your IRA each year after you turn 70.5, even if you don’t need the money. During the year in which you turn 70.5, you have up until April 15th of the following year to make that distribution, but keep in mind that you will have to make two distributions that year: the one for the year in which you turned 70.5, and then another one before year’s end for that calendar year. If you forget, the penalty is pretty steep: the IRS will assess a 50 percent penalty on required distributions that were not taken. Incorrect beneficiaries Many people think that because they have a will in place that they do not need to name beneficiaries on their IRA’s. However, it’s important to remember that any beneficiary information that is on file with your IRA custodian will supersede any bequests you have listed in your will. This is especially important if you’ve had a death or change in marital status due to a divorce. Make sure all of your IRA accounts reflect your final wishes, including any charitable giving you want to make. A good estate attorney will help you direct how to properly title your retirement accounts to reflect your estate wishes. Not knowing how to ‘stretch’ an IRA Unless you are the spouse of someone that’s passed away, the IRS will require you to make required minimum distributions from an IRA that you’ve inherited. Depending on the age of the person when they passed away, you may be able to “stretch” those distributions over your lifetime, thus potentially preserving significantly longer the value of the assets in the account.

Forgetting about after-tax dollars in an IRA If you’ve made non-deductible contributions to an IRA in the past and therefore have basis in the account, it is important to track that basis. This is done by filing Form 8606 with your tax returns. Failing to file this form means the IRS views 100 percent of your IRA as deductible contributions, thus 100 percent of your distributions will be taxable. This, in its essence, is double taxation. Improper Roth conversions or recharacterizations of Roth IRAs If you’ve converted Traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs and it is deemed a “failed conversion,” the IRS generally views the failed conversion as a total distribution from the Traditional IRA, thus causing a taxable event in the year it was performed. Obviously this can have some major tax implications given the changes in the tax code. If you’ve properly converted a Roth IRA, need to “recharacterize” that conversion (for any number of reasons that won’t be discussed here), and that recharacterization is done improperly, you could also open yourself up to adverse tax consequences.

Beck’s Hybrids eyes expansion By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com The Hamilton County Council voted unanimously to endorse Beck’s Hybrids in a letter to the state, which would business help the company with a tax abatement. Sonny Beck, president of Atlanta-based seed company Beck’s Hybrids, Inc., told the council a 2007 and 2010 tax abatement helped his company added 74 employees in 2012 and 85 in 2013. He said Beck they employ over 400 today. “They’re not all in Hamilton County or Indiana,” he said. “We now serve eight states. We’ve added Tennessee and 25 percent of Missouri and Iowa.” Beck said they have “close to 1 million square feet under roof” at its Atlanta plant. “Most of our product is processed and bagged at the Hamilton County location,” he said. The company is looking at its future and the possibilities with expansion. Beck said they must decide between building a mega center in Atlanta or research costs at other Midwest locations. “We love being here. Expansion would include a research area with technology buildings, green houses and a new packaging plant,” Beck said.

DISPATCHES Horizon Bank to open Carmel location - Horizon Bancorp, the parent company of Horizon Bank, announced it has acquired 1st Mortgage of Indiana effective Feb. 28. As previously announced, 1st Mortgage of Indiana will operate under the name of Horizon Bank. Located in Indianapolis, 1st Mortgage of Indiana is a mortgage lender specializing in conventional, Jumbo, FHA and VA Mortgage loans. Founded in 1994, 1st Mortgage of Indiana offers mortgage services to the greater Indianapolis market area from their single location at 9292 N.

Have airline fees gone too far? – Some hidden fees to watch for: Checking in early when your hotel room is ready can cost up to $50. Buying a ticket on a few airlines’ websites can carry an “electronic reservation” fee of at least $10. Putting a small pet under an airline seat can cost $250 round trip. Checking an oversize, overweight suitcase is as much as $800 round trip. On May 1, Allegiant – an airline that utilizes flights from under-served airports to destinations like Las Vegas or Florida – will start charging $5 to print a boarding pass at the airport, and it charges a $10 electronicreservation fee per flight segment and at least $10 for carry-on bags that go in the overhead bin.

Lisbon’s Monument to Discovery (Photo by Don Knebel)

Lisbon and the age of exploration Commentary by Don Knebel

Lisbon and San Francisco lie at almost identical latitudes on the west coasts of their respective continents. Both occupy seven hills and maintain picturesque old travel streetcars. Both span their bays with orange suspension bridges, designed by the same engineer. And both are wonderful places to visit. However, Lisbon has one attraction its twin city can never match – a monument honoring the life and times of Henry the Navigator, a Portuguese prince who rearranged the world, and not always for the better. Henry the Navigator, the third son of Portuguese King John I, dreamed of gaining new converts to Christianity in lands unexplored by Europeans. Beginning in 1415 he planned and financed expeditions from Lisbon that sailed further and further down the western coast of Africa. By 1444, ships under Henry’s direction, reached what is now Mauritania and began carrying slaves back to Lisbon for conversion and sale. According to Henry’s biographer, Sir Peter Russell, “In Henryspeak, conversion and enslavement were interchangeable terms.” For the next 40 years, Portuguese explorers, sailing caravels whose design Henry had commis-

sioned, reached, on average, one degree further south each year, claiming lands for Portugal and bringing back more slaves. Bartolomeu Dias finally rounded the Cape of Good Hope in 1488, proving the feasibility of a sea route to Asia. When Vasco da Gama reached India from Lisbon in 1498, trade with India began replacing the slave trade as the mainstay of the Portuguese economy. Pedro Álvares Cabral, detouring west on his way to India, bumped into what is now Brazil in 1500, claiming it for Portugal. In 1522, an expedition led by Ferdinand Magellan of Portugal sailed west on behalf of Spain and circled the globe. In 1960, 500 years after Henry the Navigator’s death, Portugal’s Salazar regime erected Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Standard of Discovery) near where expeditions had left Lisbon for parts then unknown. The 171-feet-high monument evokes a caravel, with Henry, who rarely left port, standing tall on the bow. Lined up behind him are two ramps of people important to Portugal’s 100 year long Age of Exploration. No slaves are among them. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Question: “Hi Jordan, Can you comment on “off of?� [As in] “I jumped off of the rock.� This is another favorite phrase.� (From Caroline Rosewell) grammar guy Answer: Caroline: Happy to comment, and I appreciate the jumping off point. The “off of� construction is at best anachronistic, and at worst redundant. We’ll look at why below. To begin, both “off� and “of� are prepositions. Their meanings overlap when they are used to indicate the object of an action – as they are in the example sentence, “I jumped off of the rock.� They do not function equally in that role, however. Consider them individually: “I jumped off the rock.� “I jumped of the rock.� The former makes sense – the latter does not. You could argue, I suppose, that “off� functions as an adverb modifying the prepositional phrase “of the rock� – which is itself functioning as an adverbial phrase modifying “jumped� – but that seems to me to be the grammatical equivalent of taking a plane to Chicago so that you can catch a bus to Denver. Just take the plane straight there. What I think is actually happening here is that “off of� is being substituted where “from� should go, i.e. “I jumped from the rock.� The preposition

“from� is used specifically to indicate the starting point of a physical movement, and is probably the best choice in this scenario, with “off� being an acceptable second option and “off of� not even qualifying. In conclusion, when you feel an “off of� about to slip out of your mouth, just stop at “off.� Even better, consider using “from.� And if, for whatever reason, you find a better deal flying to Chicago and then taking a bus – by all means, go for it. Who am I to stand in the way of saving a buck? Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com.

A basement designed for entertaining family, friends

Commentary by Larry Greene

EXISTING BASEMENT: After cleaning up the aftermath of their flooded walkout basement, the owners of this Zionsville blueprint for home knew it was time improvement to transform their dated basement into a space worthy of entertaining friends and family. Making the space more functional was the main goal of the project. “There was a wall separating the kitchen and media room,” said the homeowner. “Removing the wall allowed for a much better flow to host our guests.” KITCHEN DETAILS: New semi-custom maple cabinets with a Java finish were installed giving the kitchen the contemporary look the homeowners were looking for. The Venetian Gold granite countertops and glass tile backsplash polished off the look of the space. Incorporating stainless steel appliances, under-cabinet LED lighting and a craft beer tap created the perfect ambiance to host guests. GUEST BATHROOM: The contemporary look was carried through into the details of the guest bathroom. The original flimsy shower unit received a major facelift with a tasteful blend of various vibrant tiles. Ivory tumbled stone tile was installed in the niche and on floor of the shower. The Venetian Gold granite used on the shower seat, niche shelf and door sill was the perfect match with the “Modern Dimensions” wall tile.

before & after

The accent tile used for the decorative trim and brushed nickel fixtures completed the look of this spa-like retreat. UPGRADED FIREPLACE: Stacked stone and a new wood mantel transformed the fireplace into a warm and cozy gathering spot just off the kitchen and bar.

RESULT: In the end, the contemporary design and improved functionality made a dramatic difference to the space. “The wet bar is my favorite part of the whole basement remodel. We love having our own adult space in a home that is predominately ruled by our children.” There is no doubt that this basement is destined to host great dinner parties for years to come.
