New park coming to Fishers

The Fishers Parks Dept. is springing back from winter with a new set of plans and slopes. A new park is under condevelopment struction at 101st Street and Cyntheanne Road. Having 15 parks, all with specific themes, Tony Elliott, Fishers Parks and Recreation director, described the new park as “a place to enjoy and experience the outdoors in a much more adventurous way.” The nature-oriented park is estimated to be open to the public in the fall. Plans for the park include a 50- to 60-foot sledding hill, mountain bike trials, fishing ponds and tree houses. In addition to the outdoor attractions, Elliott plans to add paved pathways and a boardwalk to make the park accessible to those with different disabilities. “A child in a wheelchair will have access, like all the other kids, to get into the tree house and have that experience,” Elliott said.

Following the parks pattern of themes, the new land will be one of the few not to focus on athletics accompanying such parks as Pocket Park and Ritchey Woods. Moving earth and adding hills to the land is part of the first phase of construction. Saving taxpayer dollars and being efficient is how Director of Public Relations Autumn Gasior described the dirt already piled at the site. “We worked with partners in town so that anytime earth needed to be moved, we actually took it to the park, even though construction hasn’t really started.” Gasoir said. The dirt sitting on the site will become the sledding hill. A date for a groundbreaking ceremony has not been set, although both Elliott and Gasior believe one will take place in late April. In the future, the Fishers Parks Dept. hopes to connect all its parks through trails that will allow safe transportation. For more information on all the parks, visit the Fishers Parks Dept.’s website at

Students create posters for festival By Nancy Edwards • More than 2,700 students in grades Kindergarten through eighth that attend schools in the Hamilton Southeastern district created art that reflects this year’s theme of the Art 26th annual Fishers Freedom Festival: Keep Fishers Beautiful. The art, displayed in Fishers Town Hall through March 31, showcases the top 100 designs chosen by a panel from the Fishers Arts Council and the Fishers Freedom Festival Committee. Awards were given for nine honorable mentions, second place and first place. McCord Emma McCord, 14, an eighth-grader at Riverside Junior High School, was the winner of this year’s contest. Her design, to be on T-shirts for the festival, features a tree, flowers and a symbol for the environment. McCord will also receive a free T-shirt bearing her design, a trophy, and will be featured in the Festival Guide and appear in the main parade. Designs will also be posted on the Fishers Arts Council Facebook and the Fishers Freedom Festival website (www. The students’ name, grade and school will be posted with the T-Shirt designs at the Fishers Town Hall. The final T-Shirt will be available for purchase in the Fishers Freedom Festival Office, 8591 East 116th St., for $10 each, at the Fishers Freedom Festival and off the Festival’s web site. Proceeds benefit future Fishers Freedom Festivals. Fall Creek Intermediate School’s art department received $500 for submitting the most designs. The prize money is

sponsored by the Fishers Arts Council and the Fishers Freedom Festival. “I feel we should participate in the Fishers Freedom Festival contest each year to celebrate our great town/city of Fishers that offers so many opportunities for our youth,” said Frank Sergi, art teacher for Fall Creek Intermediate School. Nicole Boram, an eighth-grade teacher at Riverside Junior High, said she incorporates the Fishers Freedom T-shirt contest into her curriculum because “it is a great way to cover one of our visual art standards: Understanding art in relation to history and past and contemporary culture, exploring ways to support the arts and utilize resources within the community.” Keep Fishers Beautiful is an initiative by the Town of Fishers that encourages residents to assist in the beautification of their community and will be incorporated as part of the Spring Into Action Service Day May 3 in the subdivision community of Sunblest Countryview. Volunteer opportunities include light landscaping, trash removal and other low-intensity projects. All ages and physical abilities are welcome during Spring Into Action Service Day. “We’re hoping residences and neighborhoods help each other and get out in the community and band together,” said Dan Domsic, community engagement coordinator with the Town of Fishers. Those interested in volunteering may contact Dan Domsic at


Easter egg hunt relies on volunteers

The 33rd Annual Fishers Station Kiwanis Club Easter Egg hunt will take place April 19 at Holland Park. The hunt is for all children in the second grade and younger. The event will begin promptly at 1:15 Event p.m., when the children take off to find the fifteen thousand scattered eggs hidden in the park. Rick Fain, Fishers Station Kiwanis Club president, is overseeing the event and encourages all attending to be on time. “Especially for the older kids, it only lasts about five minutes, you want to get there early,” he said. Prior to the hunt, pictures with the Easter Bunny will begin at noon; parents and hunters are expected to bring their own cameras if they wish to take a picture with the bunny. Fain and his team expect roughly two thousand people to attend this year. The event relies heavily on volunteers, which include the Key Clubs of Hamilton Southeastern and Fishers High School, along with 4-H members of Hamilton County. In preparation the volunteers will meet two times to stuff all the eggs before the big day when the students will hide the eggs and corral the hunters to their specific age groups. In addition to the Easter Bunny and the hunt, the Kiwanis Club will be conducting a food drive as they have done in the past. “I’d like for it to be more. We have a great big bin,” Fain said. “I’d like for people to start making this an opportunity to donate to the local food pantries.” The Kiwanis Club is happy to be back at Holland Park. Last year the hunt was relocated to Billericay Park due to construction. “Being that it is late in the season there is a chance it will be warmer,” Fain said. The Kiwanis Club will award special prizes to the winners of each age group at the end of the Easter Egg hunt. For more information on the event, or the Fishers Station Kiwanis Club. you can email Fain at Rick_J_F@yahoo. com or visit the Club’s website at

New exhibit opens at Conner Prairie By Holly Kline • Conner Prairie Interactive History Park in Fishers will open its new Create.Connect experience on March 27. Create.Connect Diversion is an indoor exhibit that has existed in various forms. The final version is an interactive space that focuses on science, technology, engineering and math through various exhibits and activities that also purposely include persons and stories with Indiana ties. “We’re melding history and science,” said Brian Mancuso, Director of Exhibits for Conner Prairie. “We’re doing what Conner Prairie does well, which is to have the first person characters (like those in Prairie town) and the folks in blue shirts who are themselves. In Create.Connect we have a mix of first person and blue shirts,” he continued. New Create.Connect exhibits and activities include an early aviation area and a 1950s-era patent office. The early aviation section showcases early Indiana flight activities that took place right before and right after The Wright Brothers, including efforts by the Terre Haute-based Johnson brothers. “We have a really great glider plane activity,” stated Mancuso, “and artifacts are there for kids and adults to explore together and have meaningful conversations about what they see.” The patent office within Create.Connect is another great space. “There is a really fun inven-

tion activity there,” Mancuso explained. “Kids can creatively make their own invention. We’re also introducing an activity where kids can get a request for an invention and they can make it.” Conner Prairie built Create.Connect with grants from the National Science Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, as well as support from Duke Energy. “The funding allowed us to partner with Science Museum of Minnesota and we had a really great year of prototyping Create.Connect,” Mancuso said. “They really helped us test it. Our early results indicate that we are communicating science to both genders really well and people are getting it.” Conner Prairie plans to make the new version of Create.Connect a long term exhibit. “One thing I want people to know is that if they have already come to Conner Prairie to see Create.Connect, the exhibit has really changed,” Mancuso stated. “If they’ve seen it before, come back again, because now it’s a really different experience.”



At Conner Prairie, we’re inspiring kids to ask new questions about the world around them through 11 incredible experience areas — open March 27! Come out and explore acres and acres of interactive awesomeness, including our Animal Encounters Barn where you can meet the cutest, and most lovable, babies born on the Prairie this spring. It’s more than you remember. And an experience they’ll never forget!

Smoothing the flow

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon •

How many times a week does this happen to you: You stop at a red light on 96th or 116th streets. You then get the green and move to the next light only to have it turn Traffic red and you have to stop again? That situation creates bad traffic flow, not to mention annoyance for drivers, and it happens so often that the town of Fishers is undertaking a major project to get the lights synchronized. DriveFishers has announced the installation of state-of-the-art equipment on the three major corridors in Fishers. Those corridors are 96th Street, 116th Street. and Allisonville Road. According to Jeff Hill, the director of engineering for the Town of Fishers, the “smart signal” program takes existing signals on those three corridors and adds detection equipment that will count vehicles to assess where they are and reports that information to a processor or controller off to the side of the intersection. It will then make real-time changes to signal timing to better the flow.

“It’s essentially a system that allows intersections to talk to each other and overall it makes timing changes to the signals to improve flow, to reduce congestion, to reduce your overall travel time in those main corridors, and just synchronize the signals that are there today,” said Hill. The new equipment, which Hill believes is the first of its kind in Indiana, will build a “green-tunnel”. If you start at 116th and Allisonville corridor, headed toward I-69, you should get good queuing and green-time to improve your overall travel. “I never tell anyone that they won’t see a red light, but we’re improving the average overall flow and travel time for the majority of the corridor,” said Hill. The work has begun on 116th Street, with 39 intersection upgrades. The project is funded by a combination of $2.5 million in federal grant money, with Fishers kicking in about $600,000. Hill said this is a way to bring improvements to many intersections for a price that normally would be spent on widening one or two intersections, or roundabout construction. The project will end by summer.

Pothole help is on the way

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon •

Now that the snow and ice are finally off our roads, the damage they have left has become painfully evident. Streets There are hundreds of potholes all over Fishers that now have to be fixed. Autumn Gasior, public relations director for the Town of Fishers, said up to this point DPW has been putting Band-Aids on the problem, using a cold-mix until asphalt plants open in the spring. However, March 17, at its regular meeting, the Town Council approved a resolution authorizing the town to move forward with outside contractors, in addition to DPW crews, to repair potholes. That means, Gasior said, that the town will begin an aggressive plan to get the potholes under control. Beginning March 24, two dedicated DPW crews and three outside contractors will begin repairing potholes with hot-mix. These will only be day crews unless plants agree to stay open throughout the night. Then, DPW crews will work

night shifts as well, and according to Gasior. DPW has used approximately 135 tons of cold mix to repair 600 potholes so far this year. Gasior said the town would send out pothole messaging on social media starting March 24. Messaging will driving tips and DPW worksites, as well as how to report a pothole. If you spot a pothole, you can report it at: or by clicking the “report it” button on the Town of Fishers’ home page.

Hearing for 96th and Mollenkopf By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • If you’re concerned about the fate of the northeast corner of 96th Street and Mollenkopf Road you might want Development to mark April 15 on your calendar. That’s when Aerial Map the Fishers Plan Commission will again consider a petition to rezonePrinted: that corner for10, commercial Feb 2014 use. The original petition, filed in 2012, included nine properties, but was withdrawn following a hearing before the Town Council in which a large number of residents showed up to oppose it. Another petition was at filed with an additional two properties for a total of 11, all in the Bucks Creek Subdivision area. In their petition, the residents requesting the rezoning stated that they “now believe that the property is not well suited for residential use due to the lost frontage of our properties as well as the increased traffic volume. In addition, all of Bucks Creek is situated on well and septic systems that are starting to fail. There are drainage issues, e coli problems as well as properties not being well maintained.” The petition goes on to say that two national retailers are interested in developing the property if rezoned. The plan commission postponed a hearing set

for March 11 because of a lack of proper public notification. There is now a sign at the corner of 96th and Mollenkopf that directs people to a phone number to call for information about the upcoming public hearing. The Plan Commission staff filed a report for the March 11 hearing recommending that the rezoning be denied, but according to community development planner Adam Zaklikowski, the staff report will be revised for the meeting on the 15th. That report said, in part, “this rezone would not be in conformance with the Comprehensive Plan, does not take into account the residential character of the area, and may lower adjacent property values. Additionally, as the surrounding area is already built out, there would not be any new subdivisions in the vicinity to warrant a need for additional commercial uses in this area. Staff is also aware of the opposition to this project and feels that a rezoning may negatively impact these property owners. Jennifer Bennett and her husband, Daniel, are just two of many homeowners that would be affected by the rezoning. We will continue to fight the rezone, we are not giving up this fight”, she said. Ultimately it’s the town council that makes the decision as to what happens to that corner. The final decision could come by May.

New youth assistance program

A new organization called the Fishers Youth Assistance Program has been established and will be headquartered at the Fall youth Creek Township Office. The Youth Assistance Program strives to build a healthy community for tomorrow by extending a helping hand to the youth of today through family assistance, tutoring and mentoring. The programs are available to qualified children needing assistance located in the Fishers area. “We are pleased to offer office space to this new program that will greatly benefit our community and especially our client base,” said Jeff Hern, Fall Creek Township Trustee. “I fully support the vision of this program to help children that may be at-risk with services that will allow them to reach their full potential and eventually become productive adults.” Using money from the General Fund, at the request of the Trustee, the Fall Creek Township Board voted at the March 6 meeting to appro-

priate funds to remodel existing space; adding three small offices for the program staff. The Town of Fishers has given the program $15,000 for operation expenses. The space will be ready in early May. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring this program to Fishers,” said Tricia Akers, Hamilton County Youth Assistance Program director. “We have had such positive results in other areas. Connecting families with resources is crucial in avoiding at-risk children becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.” Children are referred to the voluntary program by parents, police, citizens and school counselors. Almost 400 families have been assisted through the program since it was piloted in Westfield in 2009. The program was implemented in Noblesville in 2013. The hope is to continue expanding the program into areas throughout Hamilton County. To find out more about the program or to get involved, visit their website at

Clothes Mentor, the 99th in the now open nation, opened March 10 at 11670 Commercial Dr., across from Super Target, making it the only one in the Central Indiana. Clothes Mentor brings a novel approach to consignment shops. Instead of taking clothing in and being paid a percentage when they sell, Clothes Mentor buys the used clothing and pays cash on the spot. Clothes Mentor buys and resells better brand name, gently used, items that are still in style. The amount they pay is based on the brand name, the condition, the style, and the current demand for that particular item. They are looking for all types of clothing, including maternity wear, purses, shoes, and jewelry from such brands as Tommy Hilfiger, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Coldwater Creek and many others in sizes 0 to 26. Fishers’ franchisee Mark Canada said his store was empty when they started purchasing clothing on Jan. 23. By the grand opening, less than six weeks later, the store was jammed with $78,000 worth of merchandise, all purchased locally from

women ready to sell clothes they no longer wanted. He said they continue to buy because without new products the concept doesn’t work. “Every time she comes in, it’s a brand new shopping experience,” said Canada. Women in Fishers are excited about the store. “Women are responding. It has been bedlam here today,” he said on the first day of business. “Women had been coming in the store for weeks before it opened, wanting to start shopping. On the first day, they were lined up outside for an hour before the store was schedule to open.” As an example of the savings, Canada pointed out the Coach-brand purses that sell for hundreds of dollars new. In his store, they sell for just $40. Canada said he chose Fishers for the location of the first Clothes Mentor store in Central Indiana because he just sensed that that is where it belonged.

Mayoral forum gives peek at candidates

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon •

The areas in which there was disagreement among the candidates included the type of growth Fishers is experiencing and the use of tax dollars to lure businesses to the community.

The public will get a chance to hear the candidates debate the issues on April 16 at 7pm in the Town Hall Auditorium sponsored by the Fishers Arts Council.

Six candidates who want to be the first mayor of Fishers gathered March 19 onstage at the Forum Conference Center during a forum held by the Fishers Chamber of politics Commerce. They shared their qualifications to be mayor and their vision for the soon-to-be city with chamber members. The six candidates are Fishers town council member Renee Cox, Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness, transportation industry consultant Maurice Heitzman, former Fishers Town council President Walt Kelly, Butler University professor Marvin Scott and community activist Elaine Viscant. They were each asked six questions that had been prepared by the Fishers Chamber Advocacy Council and given 90 seconds to respond to each. The questions ranged from the candidates’ experience that qualifies them to become the first mayor to their long-term vision for the new City of Fishers. There were several issues that most of the candidates agreed on, including that property tax caps are one of the biggest challenges facing the city as it continues to grow. Education also was mentioned as a priority, particularly with Hamilton Southeastern Schools facing budget tightening as a result of the funding formula passed by the Indiana General Assembly and a possible $9 million dollar budget deficit by 2016.

Kristi O’Brien’s Big Break Win or lose, Fishers resident’s rise came long before Golf Channel fame

By John Cinnamon •

Think of it as Survivor with golf clubs. Twelve contestants are brought together - usually in a tropical locale - and are put through a series of challenges testing their physical cover story skills and mental toughness. But instead of bamboo and coconuts, their tools are 9-irons and golf balls. That’s a (very) rough approximation of what you get with Golf Channel’s Big Break, now in its 21st season. And one of the contestants on this season’s edition - Big Break: Florida - is 23-year-old Fishers resident and professional golfer Kristi O’Brien. Like most accomplished golfers, O’Brien was introduced to the game early in life. “My dad got me into golf when I was 5,” she said. “I have three older brothers and I grew up watching them play in high school.” Even as a 3-year-old, the Ft. Wayne native would spend time at the driving range with her mother watching Kristi’s father and brothers hit balls. A natural left-hander, O’Brien learned to play golf right-handed, mainly because it was easier for her father to teach her that way, and because children’s right-handed clubs were more readily available at the time. But golf wasn’t her only physical outlet. “Actually, my first love was basketball,” she admits. “I played AAU basketball all through middle school and played golf in the summer.” It wasn’t until her sophomore year in high school that she realized she was better at golf than basketball and turned exclusively to golf, ultimately earning a scholarship to play at Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis in 2008. Her successful college career at IUPUI was highlighted by winning the 2011 Indiana Women’s Amateur Championship and being named the 2011 Indiana Women’s Golf Association Player of the Year. With the dream of playing on the LPGA Tour, O’Brien turned pro in 2013. Just a few months later, she auditioned and was chosen to compete on Big Break: Florida, vying for a top prize of $50,000 and an exemption into an LPGA event. All of that would go a long way to making her dream come true. But perhaps her biggest

“Kristi O’Brien (center) poses with golf Hall of Famer Nick Faldo, Golf Channel host Kelly Tilghman (far left) and other contestants from Big Break: Florida.” (Submitted photo)

break came five years ago on I-69 just north of Fishers. It was a rainy Sunday morning in June of 2009 and O’Brien was driving back to IUPUI after spending the weekend with her family in Ft. Wayne. With her golf clubs in the trunk, her duffel bag and Mom’s homemade soup in the car, she noticed a car coming up fast from behind. “I went to get over, but there was a car in my blind spot,” she explained. “So I overcorrected right, then back to the left and that’s when I started losing control of my car.” O’Brien’s car went into a spin before rolling three times, eventually coming to rest right side up. “I remember everything in the car,” she said. “I remember the grass scraping my face. Glass was everywhere, and I remember thinking, ‘When am I going to get knocked out?’ or ‘When am I gonna die?’” O’Brien never lost consciousness and was able to get out of the car through the window. Still in shock, she started walking nowhere in particular. “I looked back about 100 yards and there was all my stuff. My duffel bag, the soup Mom made me, it was just everywhere,” she said. Incredibly, she escaped the accident with

nothing more than cuts and scratches, as well as a sore right leg that hampered her walking for a time and required her to make a change in her golf swing. The real change, however, came in her outlook on life. “You know, you’re 19 and you think you’re invincible and you never really realize you only have one life to live. I was very, very blessed to walk away with no long-term injuries.” Raised a devout Catholic, O’Brien admits that as a freshman in college living on her own, she got out of the habit of going to church every Sunday. But surviving such a potentially devastating crash has renewed her faith. “There’s a reason why I’m still here,” she said. “God has a plan for me. Golf is just a game. But if I could really show somebody what hard work and dedication is, I think that’s the role that I’m supposed to be playing.” She’s putting that hard work and dedication on display in Big Break: Florida (Monday nights, 9 p.m. on Golf Channel). Even with hundreds of rounds of competitive golf under her belt, O’Brien said, “The contests on Big Break are 100 percent more stressful than tournament golf. You’re putting an entire 72-hole golf tournament into one golf shot. I’ve never had that amount of pressure.” The unique ‘sudden death’ made-for-TV event, was filmed during a two and a half week period last October at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort near Jacksonville, Fla.. Each week, one of the contestants is eliminated through a series of golf-related challenges. Like most reality shows, Big Break builds tension and conflict through real - or perceived - rivalries and animosities between players. O’Brien said despite what the show may portray, most of the women remained friends. “There are girls that didn’t get along, but I got along with everybody. I don’t like to have controversy or anything. We’re actually pretty close,” she said. Through the first four episodes, she’s still in the hunt. But no matter what happens on Big Break: Florida, that moment five years ago on a wet stretch of Indiana highway is never far from Kristi O’Brien’s thoughts. “I’m actually happy that it happened to me because I really do appreciate life so much more. I’m thankful everyday to be here.”

FR O M   T H E EDITOR It’s spring!


Commentary by Terry Anker

One can certainly hope that spring is officially in the air. The warmer days are becoming more consistent and even the stubborn remainders of this year’s bitter winter fade. Yet in spite the debris exposed as the giant piles of accumulated snow dissolve taking with them our memories of the difficulty we have just recently collectively endured, spring is a time of forward-looking optimism. With the first delicate flowers pushing through the just-thawing earth, we are inspired to shake off our own sleepiness and embrace the vernal renewal. The arrival of longer days and the optimism that always seem accompany them brings with them a new energy to commit to the strategic plans and goals set during the customary winter planning. So many of us make use of the slower business days of January and February to collect with colleagues to consider vision and direction for the months and years ahead. Then as March and April finally arrive, we find the energy to take

the difficult steps to implement the opening salvos of our work. Perhaps it harkens to our agrarian past, but the difficult seems more attainable as we experience the annual resurrection of our landscape from its icy grip to abundant life. As the well-considered designs take form in the actions of the institutions, families and companies in which we count ourselves to be part, we are reminded of the steady hand that nature employs in its own work. Spring arrives not in an instant but through a process. Each step is implemented in its own time and with its own effort – all in concert and resistant to failure. Some elements, overwhelmed by the harsh season now passed or having completed their own life cycles, fail; yet others eagerly replace them. Now is the time, let’s go to work. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

Q U O T E   O F  T H E   W E E K When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.

- Deepak Chopra

Officially, spring finally has arrived. After this extremely long winter of our discontent, we can only hope that the weather might concur with the calendar. We have certainly earned some nice weather for a change. There are signs of spring everywhere: the big ugly piles of dirty snow are gone and people are slowly emerging into their yards again. Golf courses and garden centers are actually coming back to life. A sure sign of warmer weather is all the road crews that are out. They will, undoubtedly, have their work cut out for them. The snow and ice that we suffered through wreaked havoc on our streets, leaving behind craters large enough to lose a small car in. The Fishers DOT is fixing them, and we have an update for you in this week’s issue. Also, we’ll tell you where you can call to report one in your neighborhood. Speaking of streets, DriveFishers is reporting that work has begun on a state-of-the-art system that will synchronize the lights on the major thoroughfares in Fishers. It should make your drive a bit smoother, despite the potholes. As you head out to play golf on one of our several very nice courses in Fishers, keep your eye out for a professional golfer who is featured on a Golf Channel show. Kristi O’Brien lives in Fishers and is featured on a reality show that is sort of like “Survivor Goes Golfing”. Our cover story is about how O’Brien overcame a near tragedy to become an upand-coming golfer on the pro tour. We’ll soon be voting on our first mayor of Fishers. All the candidates appeared March 19 at a mayoral forum hosted by the Fishers Chamber of Commerce. We have a wrap up inside. We heard from Fishers residents concerning our cover story of March 11 about Fishers police Sgt. Troy Fettinger who was credited with saving the life of a 12-year-old basketball player at Fishers Jr. High. At least one person wanted to point out that it was a team effort with several people and coaches involved in saving the boy’s life. During our interview, Fettinger gave lots of credit to the other people at the game who came to the aid of that child. It was a combined effort but it does point out how important it is to learn CPR. Keep reading Current in Fishers for upcoming news about CPR training opportunities offered to the public. As always, we want to hear from you. Think happy spring thoughts!

New take on dance

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

I hereby rescind my earlier statements regarding competitive dance. No longer do I find it a wonderfully empowering, highhumor quality environment for young people, and I want to get the hell out. These moms are seriously insane. Now, when I say “these,” I’m not referring to the mothers of my daughter’s teammates. Honestly, most of them conduct themselves like normal people. They clap politely for other dancers, perhaps a little louder for their own kids, and recognize that the activity they have somehow found themselves hip-deep in, though expensive and drama ridden, is an opportunity for their girls to learn sportsmanship and self-confidence, and, ultimately, to have fun. No, when I say “these” I am talking about the women who are clearly living vicariously through their petite minis. And the younger the dancer, the crazier the mom. This past weekend, our studio shared a dressing room with three others, so I had front row seats to several stellar Mommy Dearest performances. One in particular had me riveted. This mom was so aggressively wiping foundation off her 4-year-old that her child was moved to tears. Out in the auditorium, the atmosphere was even worse, especially during the hour-long awards ceremony. I had to leave twice because the two mothers in front were so obnoxious,

you’d have thought their daughters had won Olympic gold, instead of participatory medals. Participatory! And that’s another thing, I’ve now been to three dance competitions, and all three had different award levels. First Place, Ultimate Elite, Platinum . . . What the hoo-ha? Why isn’t this standardized? Not that it really matters. From what I saw, technique wasn’t near as important as showmanship, and the more skin a toddler revealed the better. A 3-year-old took home a judge’s award after gyrating on stage in a bikiniturned-monkey costume. Sure, it was cute, but at the same time, pre-school stripper acts probably shouldn’t be spotlighted! Maybe I’m too old to tolerate the shenanigans, or maybe it was just this particular event, but whatever the reason, dance competitions have become my headache-inducing nemeses. And as much as I’ve complained about spending hours on a frozen soccer field or in a humid natatorium, I would gladly take those over the dance scene. If only my daughter didn’t love it so much. The silver lining (or diamond or bronze, depending) is that I’m sure to have plenty of solid crazy-mom for months to come! Peace out.

Is Christianity dying?

Commentary by Mike Colaw

Three ways the church could die in America. History can be a frightening mistress.  In seminary, we had a class called faith Global Christian History. As we peered through the pages of time we could see why Christianity collapsed in certain areas of the world. It’s eerie. The historical church died because …. Warfare among different variations of Christianity. Africa experienced devastating divisions that greatly diluted the movement and caused lateral warfare instead of a unified front within Christianity. Sound familiar? Our best and brightest are busy fighting each other instead of creating a unified movement to engage culture. I would love to name drop here, but I will refrain! Refusal to go indigenous. As cities grew more difficult for Christians to live in, they would embrace variations of monastic (monastery) living. Instead of trying to engage the rapidly changing culture, they ran from it by creating their own types of communities separate from the “dirty” world. They created their own schools, and instead of training the next generation on how to engage the world, they ended up focusing primarily on separation. As a whole, they didn’t save cities—they abandoned them. Eventually they became irrelevant and died off. I fully believe in Christian education. However, we

must remember the purpose is to prepare them to run into society not from it. Centralized religious institutions and the removal of Christ from the center of Christianity. Sound far-fetched? Think again! You may do this and not realize it. We are always trying to make men into God and God into a man. The historical church is notorious for trying to reconstruct Christianity with a new teacher or fresh perspective. It is imperative that the church keeps Jesus at the center. When Jesus is minimized and a new teacher is elevated, trouble is right around the corner! In addition, when the inevitable ethical failure happens, it confuses thousands of churches and possibly millions of people. John Wesley is a hero to me. The other day I caught myself justifying his actions that were less then holy. I stopped myself. Wesley wasn’t perfect and that’s okay. I can enjoy Wesley’s work, but I refuse to deify him. Jesus stays at the center! So let me ask you.  Do you think Western Christians struggle with these? What do you think is the answer?  Mike Colaw is the director of ministries at Trinity Church.

Belfry to show Midwest premiere of Dudzick play

By Robert Herrington • Noblesville’s Belfry Theatre is making history – again – with another production from New York playwright Tom Dudzick. theatre Beginning March 28, the Belfry will perform the Midwest premiere of “Miracle of South Division Street” for eight performances. “I tend to be a fan of dramaties (dramatic comedies) – there’s truth, crying and a lot of comedy. In the end you feel good walking out the door,” Director Christy Clinton said. “I like plays with good characters and great lines that make me laugh when I’m reading it.” In 1943, Ruth Nowak’s grandfather proclaimed his vision of the Blessed Mother and had a statue built to honor her in their Buffalo neighborhood. Nearly 60 years later, “Our Lady of South Division” remains, and the story of “The Miracle” has been passed down and recited by daughter, Clara Nowak, and her three children. Now, it seems that there might be more to the story, and Ruth wants to tell the world in a onewoman show. First, she knows she must tell her family, and hopefully get their blessings. “This show is one that will draw the audience in. People can relate to it and more importantly,

this show has deep-rooted thoughts. It’s important to have a show with meaning and this is one,” said Becca Wenning, who plays Ruth. Kelly BeDell, who plays Beverly, said the story is one that any family can appreciate. “The very first time I read the script I was rolling on the floor laughing because it’s a comedy about a family. I could see my family coming across in something like this. I could see their reactions,” she said. The Belfry is the second community theater to perform “Miracle on South Division Street” – the first being a playhouse in California. The play opened in May 2009 in Stony Point, N.Y., and the closest professional performance was in Pennsylvania. For the actors, the premiere gives them the chance to put their stamp on the characters. “It’s very easy because it is an open door. You are the first. Your interpretation is the first one the audience will see. You get to bring it to life for the first time. It’s exciting but a little bit of pressure,” BeDell said. “It’s your creation from the beginning. There are no preconceptions about the part. You discover the part on your own and as an actor that is always fun,” said Diann Ryan, who plays the family matriarch Clara. Clinton has communicated with Dudzick for his

insights to assist her and the actors with the play. “There’s been a couple of parts I didn’t understand the choices he made. I get the flow from his vision as we rehearse. It’s great having that support. It’s an added dimension you don’t get otherwise,” she said. “It’s been unique. With playwrights like Shakespeare you obviously can’t do this; this play is modern. He’s available and it’s really neat to ask the playwright, ‘What were you thinking about when you wrote this?’ He has the whole thing engraved in his brain. It’s interesting to have this process,” BeDell said. The show will actually be unique as Dudzick sent a couple script changes to incorporate in Noblesville’s production. “It’s fun to know we’re not just following the crowd. We’re bringing new things to the community,” Dudzick said. “You have to come here to see this. When people see it, they’ll want to do it because it’s good.” “Miracle on South Division Street” by Tom Dudzick • Belfry Theatre • 10690 Greenfield Ave • 8 p.m. March 28 and 29 and April 4,5, 11 and 12 and 2 p.m. April 6 and 13 • $15 for adults, $12 for children 12 and younger • 773-1085 • www.

The Four Freshmen show classic By Zach Manges •

Jazz fans are in for a musical journey back through time when famed vocal quartet The Four Freshmen makes its way concert to the Zionsville Performing Arts Center on March 27. Formed in 1948 by four Butler University students, the group has been serenading audiences worldwide with modern harmonies and jazzy tributes to The Great American Songbook. They have 70 top-selling singles and 50 albums to their name. The latest, Live at the Franklin Theatre, was released last month. The group also enjoys a loyal fan base in The Four Freshmen Society, which holds annual conventions to honor past and present generations of the long-running band. Crossing genres and providing fresh takes on old classics is business as usual for The Four Freshmen. The current lineup was formed just last year and is rounded out by Bob Ferreira, Brian Eichenberger, Stein Malvey, and Curtis Calderon. The group is carrying on the band’s tradition of dynamic camaraderie and magnetic stage presence. “The longevity is unique. You have a group where you don’t have the original members anymore, so it’s like a sports team. It’s an organization of people who love the sound and maintaining the legacy,” Ferreira said. The impact of The Four Freshmen on the

fabric of musical culture is perhaps best seen through its far-reaching influence on other groups throughout the decades. Musical acts ranging from The Lettermen and Kenny Rogers to Manhattan Transfer and The Beach Boys have all taken note when it comes to the unique style of this quartet. Even for those not already familiar with the work of The Four Freshmen, the upcoming concert should prove to be a treat for all ages. “People are going to recognize these songs, whether they were arranged in 1950 or whether they were arranged in 2012. Great music is great music,” Ferreira said. The Four Freshman will perform at 7 p.m. March 27 in the Zionsville Performing Arts Center. For ticketing information contact the ZPAC at 317) 733-4833 or visit and search The Four Freshman.

I am probably just like you, busy with work, busy with house chores, busy with social events and really busy with kid activities. fitness The question I hear a lot, “with all that going on, how am I supposed to find time to exercise?” As a wife and mother of 3, I get it! As a trainer and health coach, I want to suggest an alternative way of thinking. What if you stop trying to find time away from your family for activity but be active as a family together? As a parent, we are mentors to our children and we want the best for them. With this in mind, we need to remember that they will see how we prioritize our own health and that is what they will learn. Why not show your kids that mom and dad’s health is just as important as all the other responsibilities? A surefire way to teach your kids the importance of health is to be active together. Family time is not just the favorite TV show at the end of night or dinner out on Saturday. There are great ways right here in Fishers for the family to get some exercise together. Plus, if you are like me, you are ready to get outdoors after this long winter. Start scheduling a family walk weekly. Make it official, pick a day and time and put it into the calendar. Visit

aspx?NID=169 for a list of nature trails at local Fishers parks and distances for each. You can even get the kids involved by letting them pick the park trail that you are going to walk. Spring is coming, so grab your helmets and ride to your favorite park for some family playtime. There are bike racks at Brook School Park, Eller Park, Harrison Thompson Park, Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve and Roy G. Holland Memorial Park. If you love that Saturday evening dinner out, walk or bike to your destination. Even when our kids were smaller, we would load them up into the stroller and walk to the nearby Donatos Pizza or sub shop. I personally can’t wait to ride our bikes to Brook School Park, get some subs and enjoy the spring weather. So what is the take away message? Yes, we are busy but it doesn’t mean as parents our own health has to be lower on the priority list. Your activity doesn’t have to be after the kids go to bed or while they are at school. Start planning your active-family-time and teach your kids health is an important part of life for the whole family!

The Oprah Effect - Starbucks’ annual meeting seemed like an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” March 19 when Oprah appeared on stage to announce the chai tea drink she created. The Seattle-based coffee company said the Oprah Chai will be available starting April 29 at its cafes and the chain of Teavana stores it recently bought. Teavana had about 300 locations, including a location at Keystone at the Crossing in Indianapolis. With competition growing in the coffee market, Starbucks is looking to tea as a new area for growth. CEO Howard Schultz has noted he wants to make tea as popular as he’s helped make coffee in the United States. Proceeds from the sales of the Oprah Chai will go toward charities that help youth education.

Calculating your taxable gain should be easier than it once was: Brokerages and fund companies must now report your cost basis, essentially what you paid plus commissions, when you sell a stock, bond or fund. When the IRS first changed the reporting rules in 2011, investors saw a spate of botched forms.

Building permits show housing boom coming February permit reports indicate that in the central Indiana area, single-family building permits increased new homes 26 percent over January numbers. There were 379 new home permits issued in February compared to 300 in January – a 26 percent increase. In central Indiana, the permits issued through February 2014 have created a total economic impact of $121,597,902 in local in-

come, $27,604,737 in local taxes, and 2,029 local jobs, year-to-date. “The harsh weather remains a huge factor in our February permit numbers but the numbers remain strong,” said Steve Lains, CEO of the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis.  “Market analysts predict a steady increase in permit activity in 2014 and I suspect once we see a rise in temperatures, we’ll see the predicted uptick in our numbers, creating a substantial economic development impact in the greater Indianapolis area,” Lains said.

Cave beneath Basilica of the Annunciation (Photo by Don Knebel)

Nazareth: Where was Gabriel? Commentary by Don Knebel

Every March 25, just after the vernal equinox and exactly nine months before Christmas, thousands of pilgrims come to Nazareth travel to remember the “Annunciation,” the time Christians believe the angel Gabriel revealed to Mary she would conceive the Son of God. Roman Catholics head for the Basilica of the Annunciation, the largest church in the Middle East. Greek Orthodox visitors go instead to the smaller Church of St. Gabriel. Each church claims to lie over the exact spot where Gabriel encountered Mary. Based on a writing unknown to most Christians, both churches may be right. The Greek Orthodox Church of St. Gabriel lies over an ancient spring, visible below the church, which first became a church site early in the fourth century. The original church was built by Roman Emperor Constantine, apparently at the urging of one Count Joseph, who claimed Gabriel had spoken to Mary at the spring. Less than half a mile away, the Franciscan Basilica of the Annunciation lies above a cave claimed to have been the childhood home of Mary when Gabriel came calling. The first church on this site was built sometime after 383, when a Spanish

nun, named Lady Egeria, visited Nazareth and returned saying that she had found the cave in which Mary lived. Today, that cave is a grotto under the church, with stairs leading to a room claimed to be Mary’s kitchen, and a column marking the traditional spot where Gabriel stood while making his momentous announcement. The Gospel of Luke, the only Biblical account of the Annunciation, says only that Gabriel came to Mary at “Nazareth, a town in Galilee.” The Infancy Gospel of James, a popular second century text elaborating on the Biblical narratives about Mary, reports that Gabriel first approached Mary as she was fetching water for her jar and then completed his revelation in Mary’s home, to which she had retreated, trembling with fear. Next year, maybe visitors to Nazareth will refer to their copies of the Infancy Gospel of James, now available online, and conclude they could appropriately celebrate the Annunciation in both churches. One can hope.

I’m proud to say I’m one of those “winter gardeners,” the type whose passion isn’t squelched by the dormancy of the outdoors season. I love bare branches, winter birds and the views unveiled by the absence of leaf cover. This year was no exception – until the first day of March. As February made its glorious retreat, I scrawled “good riddance” in red over that page of the calendar and revealed “March” in all its manic splendor. I know we’ll witness 79 degrees and an inch or two of snow in the span of 31 days … maybe even one week. Now I’m stockpiling seed packets and fogging up the windows ogling my landscape beds, praying for signs of life. I bought the first flat of pansies I saw and I have a new pair of gloves I’m dying to muddy up. My beds and pots are already cleared for a fresh start. I think this winter may have gotten the best of me, of all of us. C R O C O A T H P I T A N O R I A L I S L O O M B O T A A K A M L I O U N D A C N E P I E R B A R N




















I see it on our faces. We’ve all aged just a smidge. Not to mention, if you aren’t about to claw one eye from each of your housemates then you’re a better person than I am. We need dewy air and vibrant colors. Just watch how fluffy the days become when we can all step outside and draw in spring. This month will find me with my face in a big bag of potting mix, inhaling the aroma, then reveling in the joy of a pot of petals on the porch. There’s nowhere to go from here, but up. So, if you need me, I’ll be outside inspecting bark for winter damage and dusting off daffodil noses. I’m confident that Mother Nature will finally chase off that old man winter. Happy spring!

Space saving ideas for your kitchen

Commentary by David Decker

It’s no secret that the kitchen has to be a place for multitasking. Everything from meals, to entertaining, homework time indoors and house storage is often done in the kitchen. The big question is: Does your kitchen have enough space to accommodate all of these different functions? Implementing some space saving solutions into your kitchen can help you create a beautiful space that meets everyone in the family’s needs. Make it easy to navigate, and your cabinetry design can help you make the most of every square inch of kitchen storage space. Consider installing higher cabinets where you can store some of the more infrequently used items. Creating more built-in storage means your kitchen will appear more spacious, inviting and tidy. Within your cabinetry, try installing lazy-Susans, pullout shelves, or deep drawers to maximize the space. You can even install appliance garages to store toasters, mixers, juicers and more, so that they are out of sight when not in use. There are even cabinetry designs that feature built-in spice racks, trashcans or utensil organizers, so you can use every last inch of available space. For many homeowners, the functionality of a kitchen begins with a well-designed island. Because most islands require quite a bit of space, it’s important to strategically plan your design. You may want to select a moveable island in-

stead of a built-in, stationary one. Be sure to select an island size and style that won’t overwhelm your kitchen. You can also use a bit of visual trickery to make the kitchen look larger. Open and glass cabinet doors can make a room feel bright, airy and more spacious. A mirrored backsplash is an inventive way to make a space look larger. Additionally, if you choose a light paint color that matches your cabinetry or countertops, this can trick the eye into seeing more space. There are also some practical arrangements and strategies you can do to increase the amount of space in your kitchen. Use every inch of wall space for shelving, storage and hooks.

Organize your pots and pans using a pot rack, which can hang over the range. Use trays or storage containers to cut down on clutter. To make the kitchen table area easier to navigate, select a chair set that doesn’t have arms. The key to creating a space savvy kitchen is planning. Use every square inch effectively and you’ll be surprised at the transformation.
