Fishers’ Dresser and Kah to perform in ‘Behold the Lamb’ By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Just in time for Easter, Harbour Shores Church presents its stirring musical drama, “Behold the Lamb,” for the 22nd year. The production will take guests through the Old Testament to Passover week in the New Testament, and ends with a spectacular heaven finale. One of, if not the largest cast for a Hamilton County production, “Behold the Lamb” involves more than 500 individuals with 300 costumed actors and musicians – including soloists Stephanie Dresser and Audrey Kah of Fishers. Director Lisa Jennings said all involved are members or regularly attend Harbour Shores, 8011 E. 216th St., Cicero – just north of the Noblesville city limits border. “It brings us together – one heart, one mind, one focus,” said Jennings. “I never cease to be amazed at what God has done and continues to do in this church.” Approximately 98 percent of the church congregation is involved every year. “It is an opportunity for entire families to serve together, from birth through grandparents. Several church members take a week of vacation to be available during BTL week,” said Jennings. “No one gets paid, yet thousands of hours are invested sewing costumes, building and painting sets and props, rehearsing, blocking, baking for the reception and, most importantly, praying!” BTL is a two-hour, original production with scenes from the Old and New Testaments. The first performance, a more traditional Easter cantata, was held in 1991. “Because of community demand, it was repeated in 1992. At that time, people in the community suggested we move the production to a larger facility to accommodate the crowds,” she explained. “It was never our intention to have a ‘mega-drama ministry,’ but God’s leading was clear.” In 1993, the church took a step of faith and rented Noblesville High School, 18111 Cumberland Rd., where the annual play has been staged the past 20 years. Jennings said people came from all

parts of Indiana and many surrounding states. In 1995, the name was changed to “Behold the Lamb.” “The name comes straight from scripture, John 1:29. We have added performances through the years to accommodate ticket demand, yet we still turn away thousands of ticket requests,” said Jennings. “If we could add more shows, absolutely we’d do it. We could add two full weeks and still not accommodate all of the ticket requests.” This year, Jennings estimates approximately 20,000 ticket requests have been turned down. When the ticket office opened at 9 a.m. March 5, Jennings said the church averaged 2,460 calls per minute the first two hours. In fact, the volume of calls shut down the server, causing phone lines to be down for more than two hours. “I’m thankful when the phone rings one time,” said Jennings. “People from Kokomo and Fairmount drove here to get tickets when they couldn’t get through on the phone … It’s moving and it’s humbling.” For additional information or to join the mailing list for 2013 ticket notification, visit www.beholdthelamb.com.

Supreme Court rules ‘hybrid city’ legal By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com The Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a plan of reorganization proposed by the Town of Fishers, which would see it turn into a “hybrid city,” is legal. That plan, approved in December 2010 by a joint vote of the Fishers Town Council and the Fall Creek Township Advisory Board, would, if approved by voters in a November referendum, reorganize Fishers into a city with a council elected entirely atlarge, and a mayor appointed by that council. Citing the 1971 Indiana Powers of Cities Act and 1980 Indiana Home Rule Act, Indiana Chief Justice Randall Shepard wrote in the majority opinion that, while plaintiffs’ contentions that the reorganization will deny constitutional voting rights are plausible, they are “best characterized as inference.”

“The General Assembly has given us a guiding principle for resolving such subtleties,” Shepard wrote. “It has declared we should liberally construe the Modernization Act to effect its purposes. The Act gives to all local government what it calls ‘full and complete authority’ to reorganize, exercise governmental functions under a cooperative agreement and transfer responsibilities between offices and officers.” The decision will now go to Fishers voters to decide in a referendum in November’s general election. At press time, it was unclear what effect, if any, a late-2011 resolution by the former Fall Creek Advisory Board to remove itself from the plan of reorganization would have on the referendum.

Relationships/Spirituality

How valuable is a win? Commentary by Doug Jeschke

“I’ve given and given and given. I’m just not giving up any more.” I hear this kind of objection in nearly every mediation I do. After hours of hard work, give and take and compromise, the entire settlement comes down to one final issue. It rarely matters the consequential matters – the things really important – were settled long ago. The last issue is often the hardest to find compromise for. The importance of this issue comes from its place in time, not the real value of what is at stake. If I give on this final issue, there is no next issue to regain my losses. Giving in on this final issue would make the whole agreement feel like a loss. And no one wants to walk away a loser. This same need to walk away from a conflict feeling like a winner shows up on everyday conflicts and relationship issues even more often. If my wife criticizes me about how messy I leave her desk when I borrow it, I feel the need to remind her she often leaves the same area less than tidy, and this is where we agreed I would meet with clients at home. If I simply accept the criticism and walk away, I have a net loss in the relationship balance sheet, right? I have committed a fault, but her

(more serious fault, I might add) goes unsaid. Just like in the complex negotiation, the giving and generosity from my wife I’ve received in the past seems a wash at the time of this present (albeit trivial) issue. After all, I’ve given in plenty over the years, too. The only way I can feel like I have “won” after this new conflict is to make sure my complaint about her behavior is even more serious than my fault. No matter the circumstances, we have a drive to leave every conflict feeling like we came out on top. The problem is: Relationships can’t be won. Unlike the legal negotiation, winning a conflict in a personal relationship is not a matter of gaining an advantage on the subject of the conflict. The subject of the argument rarely matters much. In a relationship, winning is all about learning in the relationship: Learning about the other person’s desires and needs. Learning about better ways to communicate concerns. Learning about ourselves. That is a real win. Doug Jeschke is an attorney and mediator, providing divorce and other family mediation with Providence Mediation.

The evolution of desire Commentary by Mike Colaw

I remember sitting in my seventh grade science class learning about Lucy, the famous extinct hominid (Australopithecus afarensis), scientists believed lived between 3.9 and 2.9 million years ago. Though the specifics are still debated today, this raised an interesting question in my young mind – what makes someone human? Years later, while teaching in Dallas, a young lady who was finishing up her education in anthropology began to engage in my classes. This was a time for me where I began to again ask the question that plagued me as a child, but this time, from more of a scientific perspective, rather than a philosophical one.  Even in the last few months, while watching yet another Discovery Channel special, I realized every culture seems to have some form of spirituality. They (cultures) all long for something greater than themselves. So I tracked down my anthropologist friend to ask this question: Has there ever been any tribe, nation or group that had absolutely no awareness or desire for spiritual things? She wrote back and said, “No, none whatsoever.” She also said, “As a matter of fact, anthropologists use ‘ceremonial/ritual behavior’ as one of the identifiers of human behavior and cognition in the archaeological record.”  Interesting … www.currentinfishers.com

So, let’s take a meta-narrative view of life from an evolutionary perspective. Every desire we have has developed to meet a real tangible need. Hunger draws us to food, sensual desires lead us to procreate and fear develops to protect us from harm; even loneliness moves us to gather together in social groups for our greater well-being. So why does every tribe, tongue and nation worship something divine? How cruel of evolution to develop a longing in us that doesn’t exist? In fact, how did this happen? The brilliant scholar C.S. Lewis has an interesting answer: “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is we were made for another world.” It is built into us to long for meaning beyond what this world can offer. It’s a desire every group has dealt with. Even if we do discover some remote tribe that has absolutely no ceremonial or ritualistic behavior, why was this written into the hearts of the billions who have lived over the centuries, and still is today? “... not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”  (2 Corinthians 3:3b English Standard Version)

Girl Scouts supporters fill the Exhibition Hall of the Hamilton County 4-H Grounds.

Girl Scouts celebrate 100 years By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Girl Scouts, hundreds of Noblesville and Hamilton County leaders, business professionals and citizens joined area scouts, volunteers and leaders for the annual Hamilton County Leadership Luncheon at the Hamilton County 4-H Grounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville. Among the luncheon’s speakers were Maeve Van Hoorde, Georgie Perkins and Deirdre Gengenbach – a family of former Girl Scouts and volunteers with roots in Hamilton County. “The unifying bond in my family for decades was Girl Scouts,” said Van Hoorde. “I have been raised wearing green.” As a Girl Scout, Van Hoorde earned the Gold Award – Girl Scout’s highest award, equivalent to the Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts. “When I got married, I had two boys and thought my green clothes were going to collect dust,” she joked, adding she later had two daughters who now participate in Girl Scouts. Since its founding in Savannah, Ga., in 1912, Girl Scouts have helped young women around the world develop life skills – the most essential being leadership. “Girl Scouts helps girls discover the leader they can be,” said Gengenbach. “This generation of girls deserves to lead the boardrooms and courthouses.” In addition to celebrating its centennial, Girl Scouts has launched the boldest cause campaign dedicated to girls’ leadership issues in the nation’s history. Officials said the campaign, ToGetHerThere, will help break down

societal barriers that hinder girls from leading and achieving the highest ranks in all fields and industries, from science and technology to business and government. As it launches this cause, Girl Scouts is asking all members of society to help girls achieve their full leadership potential. Girl Scouts of Central Indiana Board Chairwoman Crystal Livers-Powers said one in five girls doesn’t believe she has what it takes to lead, and 61 percent of girls are either deeply ambivalent about leadership or say it’s not important to them at all. “If this continues unchecked, millions of our girls may not reach their full potential as leaders in our society,” she said. “Our cause will seek to alter this pattern.” The luncheon also served as a fundraiser for the organization. The annual cost to provide the Girl Scout program for one girl for one year is $223. “(A large amount) $1.2 million is needed so every girl has the opportunity to experience the Girl Scout activities in Hamilton County,” said Perkins. “Many of the skills and beliefs we (as women) can do started in Girl Scouts.” “I really know it takes a community like this of caring adults to make the world a better place,” added Deborah Hearn Smith, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana CEO. Luncheon co-coordinator Mary Burns said there are 5,556 Girl Scouts in Hamilton County this year, and 4,132 registered adult volunteers. “Aside from Marion County, we are the largest girl membership in our council of 47 counties in Indiana,” she said. “Hamilton County is divided into seven Service Units – Carmel Central, Carmel East, Carmel West, Hamilton Southeastern, Fishers, Jo-She-We and Manuka.”

Schools/Philanthropy

HSE’s Wolf pioneers high-ability curriculum By Erin Leonhard • editorial@youarecurrent.com Because of a new Indiana law dictating that all schools provide high-ability programs for grades kindergarten through 12, the Hamilton Southeastern School District is beginning to discuss how to incorporate an “affective curriculum,” a strategy for developing the social and emotional skills of gifted and talented students, into the program. Beth Niedermeyer, assistant superintendent for HSE, will begin to facilitate conversations between teachers and administrators about how to incorNiedermeyer porate the affective curriculum this summer when they begin planning the new first- and second-grade highability programs. “All of the research points to the importance of having an affective curriculum imbedded in your high-ability program just to help those students be successful. I think the state and everyone else is very intent on focusing on what schools and teachers can do to serve all aspects of the students,” Niedermeyer said. No decisions have been made about the implementation of the program thus far, but an affective curriculum developed by Kelly Wolf, a third-grade REACH teacher at Geist Elementary, has been considered for use as a model, both in HSE schools and at the state level. This cur-

riculum assigns one lesson to each nine weeks from kindergarten through fifth grade to teach high-ability students skills they struggle with, like time management and how to make friends. “You have a teacher who is teaching you your subjects, but our students need a little bit more of the social and emotional piece, too,” Wolf said. “A lot of high-ability students have trouble making friends because they’re intellectually so much above their peers. Out at recess, you could see a teacher on duty and a student talking to her the whole time because he or she can’t find a friend to play with on the playground.” Affective curriculums focus on lessons dealing with topics like perfectionism, bullying, stress and leadership. Wolf ’s method specifically stresses guided reading and guided viewing as the teaching tools for these topics, where the teacher presents a story or video of a character exhibiting a trait, such as responsibility, and discusses the character’s actions with the class. Many teachers already use a type of affective curriculum in the classroom, but making these strategies part of the district-wide curriculum will build awareness of the necessity to cater to the social and emotional needs of students in addition to the intellectual aspect. “(The goal is) helping them negotiate between all these kinds of things that make them who they are, and helping them overcome some of them so they don’t become a stumbling block for their learning,” Niedermeyer said.

YMI, the only nonprofit involved based in Hamilton County, outperformed all of the others, receiving a total of $2,367 in donations to its organization during the first week. “People really identify with what we’re doing,” said Darren Heil, founder and president of YMI. “We’re here supporting schools.

development of each individual child and strive to provide each child with a positive adult role model that shares a common interest with the student. “We have kids who have just as many relational needs and are just as much in need of caring adults in their lives as any kid in any setting, so we want to shed light on the relational needs of kids who live in counties like Hamilton County,” Heil said. YMI will continue to advance through the tournament by receiving more donations than the organization in its bracket. After the third and final week, Bluefish Wireless Management will donate a grand prize of $5,000 to the last organization standing. “For us, yes, the money is great. We want to win that money and have people donate, but what we really want to do is have the opportunity to share our story: why we exist, why we do what we do in Hamilton County Schools and the importance of mentoring students, especially the way we mentor students,” Heil said. Donations to YMI can be made at the Brackets for Good Web site, bracketsforgood.org, through the end of the contest. The final winner will be announced at the end of the third round on Sunday.

Plain talk

It doesn’t take a raging feminist Grammar Lesson by Brandie Bohney When I was in college, my own grammar guru used a grammar test in all of her classes. You had to pass the test at some point during the semester, or you failed the class. The test was about a style manual she wrote, and the manual contained more than one hundred rules for various grammatical issues. Several of the issues were, in my collegeminded opinion, stupid. Why was she so hung up about the use of hopefully as anything other than an adverb? Who needed to know what an anacoluthon was, anyway? What was her problem with lady? During the years since my graduation from college, however, I’ve come to determine she was right about almost every one of those rules: they are important for various reasons. And the lady rule smacked me right in the face a few weeks ago. So in honor of Women’s History Month, here’s my little lesson about grammatical chauvinism. The rule was (and is) about using lady as an adjective to describe just about any type of profession or activity: lady doctor, lady lawyer, lady singer, Lady Panther (for a sports reference). By adding the adjective, it seems as though the writer or speaker is trying to differentiate between a lady doctor and a regular doctor. It’s as

if the lady doctor is not a real doctor, per se, but instead a female pretender. At the time I was in college, I thought, “OK, I get it. It does sort of seem that way. But surely, no one means it that way. What’s the big deal?” It turns out it is a pretty big deal. And I found out by being referred to as a lady teacher. Not a teacher. Not an English teacher. A lady teacher. And somehow, the argument took on new meaning. Would the person who referred to me as a lady teacher have ever referred to one of my male colleagues as a gentleman teacher? No. No way. Men who teach are teachers to this person. Women who teach are lady teachers. And that’s a problem because it differentiates the job we do only by our gender. So let me just remind you: Women who are doctors, lawyers, singers, teachers or Panthers are just that. You can say, “My doctor is a woman,” but it would be best to avoid saying, “I see a lady doctor.” The connotation is ugly, even if you don’t mean it that way. Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher. If you have a grammarrelated question, please email her at bbthegrammarguru@gmail.com.

Cover Story

Three Fishers neighbors are betting big on their own board game, Expedite By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com I landed in Sydney after multiple layovers along the southern coasts of the world – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Cape Town, Africa – a total of 15,436 miles from my starting point in New York City. I checked my card: 25 points. One more route and I’d win the game. The setting was Brent and Anna Douthit’s Fishers home. The occasion was a beta test of a new board game, created by Douthit and friends Travis Koldus and Vaughn Paxton, and dubbed “Expedite.” Created by the three men during Fourth of July weekend, Expedite is a game that takes its visual cues from Risk, but plays like something more European; think Carcassonne or The Settlers of Catan, Douthit said. “We played the other games so much we were looking for something new or different,” said Koldus. Douthit, Koldus and Paxton were neighbors, all living along Turnham Court in Fishers (thus the name of their fledgling company: Turnham Games LLC) who were brought together by a common love of board games and mutual time to kill. All three worked from home, they said, and so would meet to play Monopoly or Risk during their free time. Eventually, they decided it was time to make something of their own. “Risk or Monopoly could drag on forever,” Koldus said. “We wanted a game you could play in 30 minutes.”

Designed to play

ers will confuse their game with others. Part of their confidence comes from the colorful designs of graphic designer Amber Simmons, of Fishers, brought on board to craft the look of everything from the board to the game cards. “(The board) is their vision,” Simmons said. “I didn’t want it to look like any other board game.” The project is a first for the Herron School of Art and Design graduate. “I’d never made a game before, so it was exciting,” she said.

Betting on board games Douthit, Koldus and Paxton have invested more than just their time into this project: They’re also invested financially into the game’s success. With a 9-year-old daughter, J.C., and an 8-year-old son, Jack, no one would question skepticism about endeavor from Anna Douthit. But she’s not worried, she said. “They played the game long enough themselves I knew … I really do believe in this,” she said. “I am that wife that stands by her man. I think it’s a great product, and I think there’s a great

The basic game play of Expedite is simple. Each player holds three route cards in their hand at all times. A route might say, for example, to connect Mexico City and Rome. Connections are made by players “buying” the city, which is the end point of the route, and as many along the way as possible. Connecting routes generates points – more for longer routes, less for shorter routes. “Other games are based around destroying or defeating your opponents, rather than winning yourself,” Douthit said. The challenge of the game comes in the strategies employed by the players, Douthit said. “Some of us are notorious for holding cards or playing back,” added Koldus. It’s also very fast-paced. A single game could take as few as 15-20 minutes. “One thing about this game: It’s always your turn,” Douthit said. At first glance, the board might look like a cousin of Risk. They are, after all, both based around the globe. From left, Brent Douthit, Vaughn Paxton and Travis Koldus But Douthit and the others say they don’t think play-

market for it. I think it will pay for my kids’ college.” Anna herself has played the game quite a bit, but said at times, she’s too “singular-minded” for it. “Nothing makes me more frustrated than when I play and lose it,” she said. To fund Expedite, its creators are looking to the Web. Specifically, this month they plan to launch an account on Kickstarter (www.kickstarter.com) – a Web site which allows organizations and individuals to fund creative projects through “crowdfunding,” or generating a large number of small donations from individual donors. The men are hoping to raise $10-$15,000, which they project will be enough to produce 300 to 400 copies of the game. A special edition will be available for Kickstarter donors, Douthit said. As of press time, the Kickstarter had not launched, though information will be posted about it and the game online at www.turnhamgames.com once it’s available. The men said the game, already being play tested in Boston, Nashville, San Francisco and by students at St. Roch’s Catholic School on Indy’s southside, will optimistically be available to play by the end of summer. In the meantime, they’re working on funding and preparing to contact 300 game stores to build up interest. “It’s been an idea for so long,” Douthit said. “It’s nerve-wracking it might go out and be huge, and it might not. We three guys from Turnham Court took nothing and made something awesome. Now, if we can just get the rest of the world to see that.” More information about Expedite and Turnham Games LLC can be found online at www.turnhamgames.com, or by searching for the company on Facebook.

Editorial Look at this train wreck in-the-works

Health Insurance

It is our position misplaced, overblown patriotic rhetoric smothers intelligent discussion. Sen. Dan Coats’ defense of the Respect for Conscience Amendment on religious freedom grounds is an excellent example. Search YouTube for “Coats says we must stand for religious freedom.” The Respect for Conscience Amendment, defeated by Democrats in the Senate on March 1, would have allowed any employer (not just faith-based organizations) that offers health insurance to refuse to cover any “specific item or service contrary to the (employer’s) religious beliefs or moral convictions.” This amendment is caught up in the brouhaha about health insurance for contraceptives – subject for another editorial. Our point is different. We object to Coats’ “religious freedom” rhetoric because it obscures permitting employers to deny insurance coverage for items contrary to the employer’s religious beliefs or moral convictions does nothing to protect the religious freedom of living, breathing human beings. Search as you might in Coats’ grandiloquent tribute to freedom of religion; you won’t find a single syllable explaining how the Respect for Conscience Amendment would enhance the religious freedom of actual, real-life people. We welcome thoughtful discussion about what treatments employer health care plans must cover. But Coats wrapping himself in the flag certainly doesn’t lead to such a discussion.

Robbing hood Commentary by Terry Anker Maid Marian may have found him dreamy, but is the story of Robin Hood one that makes sense today in the world of big government and, as some might say, the ubiquitous nanny state? Certainly, the need continues. Without regard to how much we collectively produce as a society, some of us will have more than others. Even in the most altruistic communist or utopian examples, certain ones stand above his or her peers. While most thinking folks can agree with this simple assessment, the cooperation ends there. Many believe with great passion those in our midst who have excelled are to be rewarded for their industrious nature, superior intellect and use of given talents and resources. Others, in describing the same set, would levy equally-fervent charges of robberbaronism. They might denounce those at the top of hierarchy of, at best, using undue force or position to elevate themselves over their peers, or, at worst, label them criminals to the end of ultimate persecution and prosecution.

Like most matters, the answer is unlikely found at the fringes of either argument. Some success is attributed to hard work, and some to luck or other advantage. But back to our friend and his merry band. Is it ever right to steal from or force disadvantage upon those about whom we have decided have taken unfair advantage? Robin Hood redistributed enough of the King’s money that various legitimate projects must have been affected. The French mobs beheaded enough aristocrats they must have ensnared an innocent or two. Even convicted tax-dodger Wesley Snipes failed to make a case our own government takes just too much. To certain among us, it is an alluring notion to knock down the rich and powerful. But when we take the power, does our solution become the problem? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

"Representation of the world, like the world itself, is the work of men; they describe it from their own point of view, which they confuse with the absolute truth."

Whoa, what a surprise! We hope you’re sitting down. The Congressional Budget Office, the independent arm of Congress, recently extended its cost estimates for President Barack Obama's health care law out to 2022, and, we’re shocked, SHOCKED, that the bill substantially is more expensive. Actually, twice as much as the original $900-billion price tag. Projected cost: $1.76 trillion. And this doesn’t even include implementation costs. So, in essence, the bill is going to cost nearly twice as much as projected and cover possibly 2 million fewer people. Fear not: the CBO goes on to say the law will actually reduce the deficit thanks to a projected $81 billion more in income than prior projections, courtesy of new taxes and penalties on individuals, employers and insurance companies. Just another government train wreck waiting to happen. ••• We’ve been watching the start of the U.S. 31 project these last few weeks, and while we are impressed with the dispatch by which the crews are operating, we’re less than thrilled our fellow motorists cannot seem to read signage. Just last Wednesday after work, we were on U.S. 31 North, where the speed limit decreases to 40 mph – owing to a shoulder-less thoroughfare – and one would have thought it was an invitation to run a grand prix course. We were just at the speed limit – and clearly were in jeopardy of being run off the road and into the concrete barriers. This is serious business, folks. Crews are doing their best to complete the prep work in an expedient fashion. Read the signs and believe them; the local officers of the law will teach you a very expensive lesson if you choose to do otherwise.

Five-year recap

Commentary by Danielle Wilson Well good day to you! March marks the fifth anniversary of my writing for this prestigious journal, and so I thought it time to take a moment and reflect on my experience. For starters, you should know I pen this column for fun, so don’t look to me for any hard-core journalism. See, I used to be a stayat-home mom of four and provide daycare for a nephew and two nieces, and I desperately needed a way to cope that didn’t include narcotics or cross-dressing. The mommy groups I attended were either too preachy or hoitey-toitey, and bitchin’ to my neighbors just wasn’t cutting it. So the good folks at Current agreed to give me a platform to share my thoughts on soccer mom issues like hemorrhoids, snoring husbands, potty training and the occasional run-ins with my nemeses, self-righteous Christians and breastfeeding Nazis. (Current also allows me a great deal of editorial latitude as evidenced by my frequent use of made-up words and swearing. Go freedom of speech!) Low and behold, it worked. This weekly column has literally saved me thousands in counseling and Maker’s Mark. Secondly, I am of the liberal persuasion and usually vote Democrat (unless I am under so much stress from living with my in-laws I accidentally vote Republican – true story.) This

often puts me at odds with the majority of Indianapolis suburbia, the uptight conservatives with perfect spouses and perfect houses and perfectly-perfect lives. I’m not bitter. It’s just in my world, manicures, sit-down dinners and bathed children are the things of fiction. My point is, I keep it real in my articles. This doesn’t mean I hate my kids or am heading for divorce. The truth is, most days I’m just hoping to keep my sh*# together long enough to enjoy a “30 Rock” rerun before bed. And my guess is, many of you can relate. Two more things: To protect the identity of my fabulous husband, I refer to him only as “Doo,” as in Loretta Lynn’s spouse. He inherited this nickname after a particularly disturbing yet hilarious affair involving a raccoon, a shotgun and a bathrobe-clad yours truly. Also, I close all of my articles with “Peace Out.” My sister-inlaw used to speak these words when she’d retrieve her kids from my “daycare” and I associate the phrase with a happy feeling of closure (and two fewer kids). So, thanks for your patronage, and peace out!

That time of year

Laughs by Mike Redmond

It is spring cleaning time, and because I always follow the rules (sometimes) I have begun my annual ritual of trying to make things presentable around here, starting with the refrigerator. My refrigerator is more than just a place to store foodstuffs. It’s also a time capsule. The more you dig toward the back, the more you find evidence of a once-proud civilization that clung to those last remaining teaspoons of jam in the jar, the cups of orange Jell-O, the rinds that cradle a small crescent of Swiss cheese. Oh, and pickles. Lots and lots of pickles. For which I blame the McKenzie family pickle rule. The McKenzies, my mother’s family, are big on pickles. Well, actually, we’re big on everything, in the wide-load, hearty-eater, two-desserts sense of the word. But we really like pickles. Maybe it’s because we’re from LaGrange County, where just about every family tree – including ours – has an Amish or Mennonite branch. Anabaptists have some fine pickle traditions, although that business about each meal having seven sweets and seven sours is a myth. Sorry if that bursts your bubble. The McKenzie pickle rule says any time you have family over for a celebration dinner, you’re supposed to put pickles on the table. A lot of them. In several varieties.

It further states the pickles should be of the highest quality (as I said, we like pickles), meaning they should be from an unopened jar. Homemade are preferred, but there’s nothing wrong with good store pickles. OK, so this means every time people come over, I have to buy a lot of pickles. And that means I invariably have pickles left over, which go into the fridge, where somehow they migrate to the back where they can’t be seen. Then another holiday comes along. Which means time to buy new pickles. And I can’t use the leftover ones because that is against the rules. By the end of the year and all the dinners – Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, plus birthdays – you have an entire shelf of the refrigerator pretty much dedicated to quarter-full jars of pickles. Some of which have gone beyond mere picklehood and into that territory known as “laboratory experiment.” And so in spring, that season of renewal, I turn my attention to the task of cleaning out the fridge and giving the old pickles a decent send-off. I’ll deal with the olives in the fall. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline.com or P.O. Box 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244.

Stop! Thief in Minnesota Laughs by Dick Wolfsie

I recently discovered another newspaper columnist has been stealing my material and claiming it as his own work. Apparently this culprit has lifted the exact words from other writers, as well. But had this plagiarizer stolen from me? I picked a distinctive paragraph from a recent piece I wrote … “We’ve had critter problems before, but there’s a big difference between having a mouse in your kitchen and having a woodchuck in your backyard. A woodchuck is something you can mention at a cocktail party and someday those very same people will sit in your kitchen and gorge themselves on your homemade guacamole.” Bingo! My column popped up, nearly word for word, in a Blooming Prairie, Minn., newspaper. Except the byline wasn’t mine. The only change the writer made was he dumped the guacamole and served onion dip instead. I guess that was to add a little local flavor. The first thing I did when I learned of this literary pilfering was to tell Mary Ellen. Her response: “This is incredible, Dick. Are you telling me he could have stolen from any of hundreds of humor columnists in America and he picked you?” You’d have to know how Mary Ellen said the word “you” to understand why I lost an entire night’s sleep thinking about that. She had more

to say. “So people know about me in Blooming Prairie, Minn. How cool is that?” “I think you are missing the point here. I work very hard every week to write my column.” “Right, sure you do. So tell me, did he steal that adorable piece you wrote where I make fun of your bad habits like shaking your leg and leaving caps off jars in the fridge? And how about that hysterical column where you put on someone else’s underwear at the gym by mistake?” “Yes, but he also used the one where you have no idea how to use your cell phone, the column where I make fun of your relatives and the one where you pack and repack three or four times before going on a trip.” “The man must be stopped, Dick.” I agreed. This was inexcusable behavior. The Minnesota plagiarizer was confronted with the evidence and left the paper in disgrace. The publisher has apologized to all the writers, acknowledging how reprehensible this behavior was, but he added the column would not be missed, because some weeks it wasn’t that funny. That was another night of sleep I lost.

Implants, lasers and peels Commentary by Dr. Barry Eppley Q: I had a breast reduction done when I was a teenager (now age 30) and now, if you can believe it, I’m thinking about getting breast implants. I am a 34B and was thinking of getting 350cc silicone gel implants if this will not make me too big. My main concern is am I more likely to have something go wrong. Is it (augmentation) more difficult since I already had breast surgery? A: Surprisingly it is not rare that a former breast-reduction patient will one day later desire a breast augmentation. Teenage breast reduction has the potential for this to happen as the reduced breast will be exposed to pregnancies, which cause breast involution or breast-tissue shrinkage. When coupled with the prior breast reduction, a woman can eventually end up with almost no breast tissue at all. The desire for augmentation after reduction may also occur if the amount of breast tissue removed was excessive. Prior breast-reduction surgery has no negative influence on the subsequent placing of breast implants. Reduction surgery occurs above the muscle; implants are generally placed below the muscle. Q: I have a few wrinkles and extra skin on my lower eyelids I would like to get rid of. I have read about lasers and chemical

Bananas lower blood pressure – You probably know eating too much salt can raise blood pressure, but most people aren’t aware of the benefits of potassium, which counters sodium’s ill effects. According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, people with hypertension may especially benefit from upping the amount of potassium in their diet. Adults should get at least 4,700 milligrams a day. A few good sources: bananas (422 milligrams each), a baked potato with skin (738 milligrams), orange juice (496 milligrams per cup) and nonfat or low-fat yogurt (531 to 579 milligrams per 8 ounces). - www.health.com

peels. Which of these two lasts the longest? Which is the most natural looking result? Which is least likely to excessively tighten skin? I am curious as to why laser resurfacing is so popular over chemical peels. A: Both methods, laser versus trichloroacetic acid chemical peel, are commonly used and it is a matter of comfort and experience as to which method plastic surgeons use. It is likely you may also benefit by a pinch lower blepharoplasty with a TCA peel, but I would have to look at your lids to answer that question. This is a favorite method of mine for the lower eyelids because it works very well with a very small amount down time. It is also the most minimalist method to guarantee lower lid skin would be tightened to some degree. Lasers are more popular than peels today for a few reasons. First, they are more “hightech,” and with that comes the assumption they produce better results. In addition, their high cost and the need for the manufacturers to sell them drive a lot more visible marketing efforts.

Chocolate milk for jocks? – Chocolate milk has a new target audience: adult athletes in search of a better recovery drink. But is drinking chocolate milk after a workout really a good idea? At least one study (OK, an industry-funded one) has shown big improvements in follow-up workouts when subjects drink proteinrich chocolate milk instead of regular-old sports drinks like Gatorade after exercise. And Michael Phelps swore by the chocolaty stuff to aid him in the Athens and Beijing Olympics, then proceeded to win 14 gold medals. But it should be said: For the more casual weight lifters, joggers and stationary bike-riders among us, guzzling a carton of sugary chocolate milk is probably neither necessary nor advantageous to your overall fitness. - www.esquire.com

Study explains weird urge to jump from high places Ever felt an urge to jump from a ledge but have no desire to kill yourself? This feeling now has a name. In a research study published last month in the Journal of Affective Disorders, a team from Florida State University’s psychology department explored this freaky feeling and dubbed it high-place phenomenon. It could, researchers thought, shine light on one of Freud’s ideas, that some people have a “death wish,” and that some suicides are purely impulsive, absent any sign of depression or even sadness. They surveyed 431 college students, asking them about urges to jump from high places and thoughts of suicide. They also assessed the students’ levels of depression, and their sensitivity to anxiety. That doesn’t mean how anxious they are; it means how sensitive they are to the physical effects -- faster heart beat and shortness of breath -- that accompanies anxiety. Those physical sensations can themselves be interpreted as dangerous. About one-third of the sample said they’d felt the urge to jump at least once. People who had thought of suicide were more likely to say yes, but more than 50 percent of those who said they’d never considered suicide experienced the phenomenon, too. - www.bodyodd.msnbc.msn.com

Business Move the needle: Accountability DOUGH

Business by CJ McClanahan

His name is David and for the last three years, he has shown up to work 15 minutes late every single day. Her name is Sharon and she has neglected to learn how to use the new inventory software since it was first purchased in 2008. Their co-worker, Brian, refuses to turn in his weekly reports on time. If you have a leadership role in a company, you have undoubtedly run across a David, Sharon or Brian at some point. Are you ready for the worst news? It’s probably your fault. A certain portion of the workforce (about 20 percent) has an innate sense for what these people need to do to make themselves and their company more successful. Then, there’s everyone else. The majority of these people are honest, hardworking and do whatever it takes to meet expectations. They are an extremely important part of the workforce. Another interesting characteristic of the 80 percent is, for the most part, these people will do whatever is asked of them. If you ask them to follow up with all outstanding prospects, they will make the calls; they will strive to meet expectations. There are three reasons why many leaders complain to me it’s hard to find “good employ-

ees.” The first, and most often referred to as “the real reason,” is the 80 percent is lazy, doesn’t listen and is not bright enough to add value in today’s complex workforce. It’s my belief most people want to work hard and be successful. I also believe just about every task can be learned and base-level intelligence plays a lesser role than you might think. The next reason is most leaders do a terrible job of setting clear expectations for their staff. Finally, most people tend to continue missing expectations because they aren’t held accountable for their behavior. Interested in getting the most out of your staff? Here’s a simple plan anyone can implement. On Monday morning, sit down with your team and hand out a simple list of the key fundamentals you need them to complete during the week (for a sample, e-mail kellie@ goreachmore.com for a template). Next Monday, pull out this same sheet and see what was completed. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

The bizarre reason you aren’t satisfied – People who are ambitious may achieve more success, but that trait doesn’t necessarily translate to living a happier life, says a recent study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology. Researchers tracked 717 people during a 70-year period. When they compared people who classified as ambitious (i.e. graduated from a prestigious school and went on to a high-paying job) against more laid-back subjects, they found the ambitious folks actually came out less satisfied. The problem: Ambitious people tend to escalate their goals based on attainments. -www.menshealth.com

Foreclosures flood market – Lenders in January took back nearly 91,100 distressed properties, which include foreclosures and short sales, an increase of 29 percent from the previous month. In the next few months, experts say those homes will make their way back to the market to join the already high percentage of distressed homes being snatched up by buyers. That addition of distressed properties will likely lead to further drops in home prices, says Tom Popik, research director at Campbell Surveys, a real estate research firm. Foreclosures and short sales accounted for approximately 35 percent of total existing home sales in January – an increase of 16 percent from June. During that period, the median home price decreased 8.5 percent to $154,700. “Prices are going to continue to go down for a long time,” says Popik. - www.smartmoney.com

Gardener psyched for another season Commentary by Holly Lindzy Having only JUST sprung forward, dare I say I think I’ve weathered the winter? I managed to eek out some amaryllis blooms, overwinter a Wandering Jew plant and acquire a gift ponytail palm during this less than inspirational winter we’ve had … but I’m starting to get cranky about seeing some more color around here. It won’t be long before someone comments that my driving passed the garden centers daily might be considered stalking, which doesn’t seem like healthy behavior, but when perusing seed selection or harvesting patches of moss from the side yard isn’t enough, what’s a girl to do? There was a time when I would pass my days tending to seedlings under grow lights and attending lectures about the newest varieties, but those times are on hold for now, with a preteen daughter (oof!) and a full-time job, it’s all I can do to go for a walk in the woods these days … and maybe a load of laundry peppered in. America’s most popular pastime, gardening, is

… pastime. What fun it would be to have time to pass? Instead, it seems I’m looking for it! And when I do find it, I try to relish the moment. A protective cardinal on the fence, a pair of squirrels in frantic courtship, blooms from common lawn “weeds” … all sights unseen once a good oppressive heat sets in during August. Finding a tiny baby sedum as I brush away last year’s debris is enough to fill the void of not nurturing baby plants in my windowsill. I do what I can do. And try not to end up with a restraining order from the garden center. So, let the season begin. Dust off the trowel and shake out the gardening gloves, it’s going to be a doozey. And please, e-mail your gardening woes and wisdom to me this season as you have in the past! Happy gardening! Holly Lindzy is an Indiana Accredited Horticulturist, Advanced Master Gardener and Community Tree Steward residing in Noblesville. Please e-mail your gardening woes and wisdom to hollylindzy@gmail.com.

March gardening tips – 1. Resist the temptation to uncover spring-flowering plants such as daffodils and tulips. Mulch may be loosened, but the shoots will still benefit from protection against cold, drying winds. 2. Be sure flats and pots used for starting seed are perfectly clean. You can sterilize with a solution of 10 percent bleach and 90 percent water. 3. Water newly-started seedlings carefully. A pitcher may let the water out too forcefully. A mist sprayer is gentle, but can take a long time. Try using a meat basting syringe, which will dispense the water effectively without causing too much soil disruption. - www.almanac.com

INSIDE & OUT

In the home

Mixing old and new: Updating 1980s kitchen Remodeling by Larry Greene Original kitchen: This home, located in the Brookshire addition in Carmel, was built in 1980 and the owners have lived in the home for 21 years. The owners are retired now and have completed a few remodels over the years. “There were a lot of little things that bugged us about the kitchen, and you tend to live so long with those things you begin to ignore them. Once we found the right design/build team, we were ready to make changes. We love our kitchen now.” Project goals: The homeowner decided against gutting the entire kitchen, but still wanted several functional and aesthetic upgrades. The goals for the remodel were to remove a large, outdated ceiling light box; make the refrigerator look built-in; remove the hanging cabinetry between the kitchen and dining area; update the built-in shelves in the pantry; and build in the microwave above the stove.

net door and drawer fronts were custom ordered to fit the space. According to the owner, “We had new cabinetry added to the old, and the carpenters were able to match the look. When people come into our kitchen, they cannot tell which cabinets are new.” Final results: The homeowners commented, “The old pantry had built-in shelving that could only store soup cans. The new roll-out shelving gives us much more storage. We had granite

installed a few years ago, but with the overhead cabinets, it got lost. Now the cabinets are gone and the new pendant lighting is up; the granite looks like a piece of art.” Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a full-service design/build firm serving Hamilton County.
