Breakfast raises money for scouting By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com

The Boy Scouts of America Crossroads of America Council held its ninth-annual Town of Fishers Breakfast for Scouting on March 26 at the Hawthorns Golf fundraising and Country Club. Breakfast Chair Pete Peterson said the goal of the breakfast is to raise money for underprivileged kids. “Scouting provides an area for kids to really get involved in the community and teach them the goals, values and character that we want to see in them. And to keep boys out of trouble, too. The problem we run into is that some youth can’t afford to do that. These breakfasts help that. They drive kids that couldn’t ordinarily come into scouting because of their backgrounds or whatever the case may be, and allows them a scouting presence,” he said. Scouting is alive and well in Fishers with 13 Cub Scout packs, seven Boy Scout troops and one Venturing Crew. There are 930 youth members and 230 adult volunteers involved. The breakfast raised approximately $24,000, $3,000 more than last year. Peterson said people in Fishers turned out for the breakfast and scouting. “A wide variety of folks came to support this. Scouting is an easy thing to support, especially in this community because it does such great things for young people,” he said.

Lawmakers reviews session

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com

State legislators representing Hamilton County recently participated in an all-county legislative breakfast sponsored by the Hamilton County chambers of commerce, legislature including Fishers. They discussed the recently ended short legislative session and talked about the things that were accomplished that will benefit Hamilton County. Among the legislation mentioned were bills providing for a referendum on mass transit in Central Indiana, tax reform that includes giving local government units three new options for cutting the business personal property tax, and a revision of the criminal code. One of the participants was Sen. Jim Merritt, who represents Fishers and has been a state senator for 24 years. Merritt, who lives in Fishers, said one of his proudest achievements was the expanded Lifeline law. “I’ve visited both high schools. I mainly talk about alcohol and drugs, but specifically bath salts. There wasn’t legislation surrounding that before the expanded Lifeline Law. If someone was a victim of a sexual assault and they were inebriated, prior to this they couldn’t call and have immunity on their own behavior. Now, if you’re a victim of a sexual assault or a victim of a crime, or if you witness a crime and you are under 21 and you have a situation such as being intoxicated, you can call 911 and have immunity.” Merritt says that what he tries to do with a piece of legislation is to create a gray area. “The law has to be flexible and we have to understand that kids make mistakes. So the LifeLine

law is expanded this time to include someone who is in need of medical attention,” he said. The issue of school funding was raised, especially in light of the budget shortfall that Hamilton Southeastern Schools is experiencing. Merritt said it is a work in progress. “We need to continue to press that funding follows the student. It’s like turning a cruise ship around in a creek. We won’t lick it in just a few sessions. It will happen over time, because we can’t bankrupt Gary or IPS. Education is the backbone of all public policy. It is the source of economic development. People will not move to a state where education fails.” Merritt said making more changes to business property tax laws and outlawing synthetic drugs will be issues that he will work on in future legislative sessions. Merritt also has a downloadable app that provides a list of companies with job openings.

By Mackenzie Klahr • news@currentinfishers.com Fishers received the 2014 Hoosier Planning Award in the Outstanding Plan division for its work on the Fishers Comachievement munity Art Master Plan. The award was given by the Indiana American Planning Association Chapter who defined the Master Plan as “a project that will sustain public art in the long term through a contribution of time and ideas.” Chair of the awards committee, Joshua Desmond, helped to choose the winners. The team took time to look at each category and then named the best qualified of the group. Desmond saw Fishers’ plan as thought out. “It was well done and geographically looked organized,” he said. “They took a unique approach for putting a formal plan together.” Chalkboards put up in the Pocket Park and the 360-square-foot mural on 116th Street are two projects already completed through the plan. Rachel Johnson, the assistant director of planning for Fishers Community Development, worked to develop the visual arts and culture of downtown Fishers. “When you design a downtown you’re creating buildings and streets, but you are also creating an atmosphere and that has a lot to do with it,” she said. Future goals for the plan include maintaining a framework that allows the community to submit

Mass transit in Fishers

Commentary by Larry Lannan

Believers in mass transit have waited a long time for the Indiana General Assembly to act. Now that a law has finally perspective passed both houses of the state legislature, we ask the question: What does the new law mean for the future of mass transit in Fishers? The answer is not simple or easy because the law passed by state lawmakers is anything but simple and easy. Anytime a compromise must be reached between very different House and Senate versions, the final language can be difficult to sort out. At the March 17 Fishers Town Council Work session, Sean Northrup, assistant executive director of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization, briefed council members on the new law. The good news is we finally have a Central Indiana mass transit law. The bad news is there are many unanswered questions. Once the law is officially enacted, legal guidance will be issued on how the statute will be interpreted and administered. One item the law does not address is the establishment of a regional transit authority. No one knows how local governments will be able to work with each other in order to establish mass transit service in several different cities, towns and counties.

A referendum will determine whether voters in that locality will approve an increase in the local option income tax partially funding the new system. A referendum could be held in places like Fishers as early as 2016. It should be noted that the Fishers Town Council has taken no position on mass transit. This is largely because all seven council members have differing ideas on what a mass transit system would look like. In fairness to the council, no one system has ever been proposed where members could make a yes or no judgment on that plan. I don’t know whether Fishers and other localities will vote in favor of a tax increase to partially fund a regional mass transit system. But I do think it is fair to have that plebiscite and measure how much or how little support mass transit has in this area. We do not have a perfect law for mass transit in Central Indiana, but at least we have a law, and that is movement in the right direction. Voters in Fishers should start thinking about whether a new mass transit system is worth a tax increase.

A public open house was held at Hamilton Southeastern High School March 25 to encourage residents to give feeddevelopment back for the enhanced train station plaza. The event drew approximately 60 residents who had the opportunity to learn about project specifics. Plans for the train platform and pedestrian plaza include ticket windows, public restrooms and better Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility. As well, residents can expect plaza seating and bike racks, while the platform will accommodate future mass transit needs. The plan, which was passed by Fishers Town Council in February, is a $28.5 million project (with $9.5 million from Fishers) that includes a three-story, 33,000 square foot mixed-use office building, a 400-space parking garage wrapped with more than 100 luxury studios, one-and two-bedroom apartments and an enhanced train pedestrian plaza and platform. Although the current building will be demolished, raising concerns from residents about the 18-year-old train station’s historical significance, according to Fishers Town Council member Mike Colaw, the use of the current space is limited. “The space is not conducive for efficiency,” he said. The building has termites and is not ADA compliant.“The new station is going to be bigger with public amenities.” The redevelopment of the Nickel Plate district downtown will also create a walkable, more vibrant community, according to Town Manager

Scott Fadness. Colaw added that residents have said they would like to see an area developed that is unique. “People are saying they’re tired of strip malls,” he said. “We’re looking at something different.” Although some residents are looking forward to the next phase of downtown redevelopment without hesitation, others, including Annie Dennis, said they felt frustrated that the project moved forward without their input. “It’s sad that seven people are deciding the fate of the whole city,” Dennis said, referring to town council members.“They’re putting the cart before the horse.” Brenda Myers, executive director of Hamilton County Tourism, said she is excited about what the plan will bring to the community. “There is a lot of opportunity to see and do things,” she said. “I think it’s just a neat next phase.” Construction on the project is scheduled for this spring and should be completed by the end of next year.

It’s on to vacuum fun

Commetnary by Heather Kestian

I am old. I recently came to this realization when we got a new vacuum. Gone are the days of late night partying and Plain talk clubbing. Wait, what? The old vacuum was a wedding present, which I did not understand the value of said cleaner at the time some nine years ago. It had served more than its useful life and had caught fire. Thankfully, no one was injured, including the carpet, but it was time for a new one. I did something I do not normally do: I researched (read: Googled) “best pet vacuum”. Those search terms were a bit overwhelming. However, after hours of online reviews, we had our next vacuum chosen. In one short week, the new vacuum would arrive and my carpet would be clean again. As many of you know, we have a cat. We call her Callie, and she rarely answers to it. She is far too proud to be controlled by the likes of us. She has massive amounts of hair. And by extension, hairballs. The kids adore her and she does a good job of tolerating them. She loves them during naptime since she is anyone’s best friend if they are napping. Did I mention that the hubbs

is allergic to her? He must love me. I have reached a certain age. I shall call it, the Age of Enlightenment. It has a nice ring to it. How did I come to figure out my true age? When the package that housed our new vacuum cleaner arrived in the mail (I love Amazon), I opened it that evening and put the vacuum together. It was like being a kid again! When I turned the vacuum on for the first time, it was as if a small piece of heaven was here on earth. It is quiet, it does not make my arms and core hurt to push it around, and it sucks all the dirt and cat hair into the pretty chamber. And for some strange reason, I have to announce how disgusting the filled chamber is after I have finished vacuuming. It may sound something like: “Look at all that dirt and cat hair! So gross!” What has happened to my life? I may have a slight obsession with vacuuming. Everything gets moved when I vacuum the floors now. Why not? When you appreciate something this much, you do not mind doing it. Heather Kestian is a Fishers resident and mother. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism, as well as a master’s degree in education. Her family moved to Fishers in 2010.

Fishers pro represents U.S. By John Cinnamon • news@currentinfishers.com The name Witsken has been synonymous with professional tennis in central Indiana for nearly 30 years, dating to 1985 when SPorts the late Todd Witsken of Carmel turned pro. Now his younger brother Rick, who followed him into the pro ranks in 1991, continues to carry on the tradition by representing the United States in the 34th ITF Seniors World Team Championships, April 21-26 in Florida. A Fishers resident, 43-year-old Rick Witsken was chosen to team with three other players from the U.S. to compete for the Tony Trabert Cup in the Men’s 40 and Over division. “Representing our country is an incredible honor, and forming a bond with three other Americans for the week, in hopes of conquering other countries’ best competitors is truly remarkable,” said Witsken. “The camaraderie struck with players from other countries is also quite enjoyable. A sense of global peace surrounds the competition.” This will be Witsken’s second time playing for the U.S. in the Seniors World Team Championships. He was on the team in 2011 when the competition was held in New Zealand. Recalling that year’s event, he said, “It was a great experience, except for the fact we were there during a sizable earthquake.” The International Tennis Federation Seniors World Team Championships is the senior tennis

equivalent to the Davis Cup and will feature more than 1,000 players from 39 different countries. The event will be held at various clubs across the Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton, Florida area. Witsken is the founder and director of Team Witsken, a local organization that provides tennis lessons, clinics, and events in Fishers, in addition to locations around Indianapolis, Carmel, Zionsville, and Noblesville. He was inspired to create Team Witsken after his brother Todd died of brain cancer in 1998.

EASTER AT H E A R T L A N D C H U R C H

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com

According to HSE Schools Supt. Dr. Brian Smith, Hamilton Southeastern is the secondlowest funded school district education in the state of Indiana. The decreasing funding, coupled with increasing enrollment, has caused a projected multi-million dollar budget deficit over the next few years. This has led the school district to consider some creative ways to decrease the budget and raise more revenue. At its meeting on March 24, the school board heard recommendations drawn up by a committee of school officials that included members of the school board, principals, athletic directors, transportation department officials and others. HSE CFO Mike Reuter pointed out that the committee was formed to include all areas that would be affected by the budget reductions and that all ideas were put on the table. The goal was to find ways to reduce expenses by $5 million over the next two years while protecting classrooms and minimizing the impact of larger class sizes. The recommendations that were presented to the board represented nearly $3 million in savings identified so far. The biggest line reduction was in the area of health insurance. The recommendation calls for cutting $1.5 million from the amount HSE spends

on its health plan. It was pointed out that HSE has not increased its employee health plan contribution for four years and, if approved, this would be the first year that employees would lose some of their benefits. A recommended area that would raise revenue is to expand “pay to participate” fees for both athletic and non-athletic extra-curricular activities by up to as much as $225 for high school athletes. The plan raises money by charging for diplomas and selling graduation DVD’s. Smith said that there has been $13 million cut from the schools’ budget since 2008. “People have this misperception that because we have so many new school buildings, that we’re a wealthy district. The fact is, those buildings are new because of growth. The problem is that we can’t afford to put teachers into those buildings like we ought to be doing. This past year we had over 300 student growth and could afford to hire 3 more teachers. So, our class sizes are skyrocketing. These cuts were specifically aimed at staying away from classrooms because they’re already feeling the pain,” he said. “How our schools are funded needs to be looked at in longer terms. To just keep cutting every year, doesn’t make sense without addressing the fundamental issue about equity and the way dollars are distributed.” The school board will vote on the recommendations at its meeting on April 14.

Board recommendations for 2014/2015 budget Expand pay to participate fees (all non-athletic ECAs $25, JH athletics $100, HS athletics $225) $ 384,615 Sell graduation DVDs to help offset graduation expense $ 5,000 Charge students for diplomas and diploma covers $ 20,000 Eliminate the cost of Creating Positive Relationships for free/reduced students $ 7,200 Adjust facility charges to non-school groups using school facilities $ 30,000 Charge fees to cover the remainder of the costs to the district for Camp Tecumseh $ 10,000 Offer half-day kindergarten at one location with minimum class size-parents to provide their $ 10,000 own transportation Modify health plan benefits for all participants $ 1,500,000 Don’t fill three open Teacher Development Specialist positions $ 260,000 Don’t fill open central office secretarial position $ 40,000 Eliminate part-time treasurer position at HSE HS $ 14,839 Reduce all non-special ed IA days to 180 from 185 $ 20,541 Revise professional development schedule and delivery model to require less sub coverage $ 200,000 Move to an online ordering system for all supplies to standardize supplies, save paper and $ 5,500 postage costs Reduce supply budgets 50 percent $ 350,000 Stop providing food/meals at all meetings and beginning of the year $ 15,000 Reduce daily interschool mail to three days a week $ 2,080 Total Estimated Revenue/Cost Savings 14/15 $ 2,874,775

Fish fry reels in big crowd

MO’S IRISH PUB at HAMILTON TOWN CENTER

MIA STRONG 2014

There’s nothing that says spring and Easter are on the way quite like a good church fish fry. And the one in Holy Spirit Parish at Geist Catholic Church is a 20-year tradition. Men’s Club member Scott Springer has directed the fish fry since its inception and said they serve an average of 1,200 to 1,300 meals per night, which he believes is the largest in the area. “Talking to the food vendors who supply this church and other churches, they tell us that we are the king of fish fries,” said Springer. The church also offers a drive-thru, which Springer said gets as many as 400 cars on all six Friday nights. Besides the fish, there’s beer, wine and entertainment. Springer says there’s a reason that it’s so popular. “Honestly, the food’s good. They come once to support the parish and they come back because they enjoy the food,” he said.

If you go:

• When: 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Fridays during Lent.

Autistic individuals and their families are invited to explore Conner Prairie Interactive History Park for free April 2 and April 12. In recognition neW program of Autism Awareness Month, Conner Prairie and Damar Services, which helps children and adults living with developmental and behavioral challenges, have partnered together to recommend museum activities for those with autism and sensory or developmental challenges. Conner Prairie will offer free admission from 9 to 10 a.m. both days. The early admission is designed to reduce the noise and sensory overload associated with public places, which can be overwhelming to those with sensory challenges, according to Catherine Hughes, director of interpretation at Conner Prairie. “We want to provide time for families to have a calm, private experience,” Hughes said. Visitors can enjoy full access to the park, which includes interacting with animals, a self-guided exploration of five outdoor historical areas, crafts and more.

Designated quiet spots, to be marked on the visitor map, will include weighted blankets and soft sensory toys. Interpreters will be available to guide guests to the areas they are interested in the most. “We focus on the individual, to create a unique experience and guided experience,” Hughes said. “I think Conner Prairie is especially suited to provide something everyone will enjoy.” Damar Services is providing training of staff members to help them to better understand, engage and assist visitors with autism, sensory or developmental challenges. Jill Whelan, an interpretation manager with Conner Prairie, said she appreciates that staff members know how to assist those with autism, including her son. “(My son) likes that people give him an explanation (of the activities) without forcing him into them,” she said. “They find things that work for him based on what he is interested in. Our staff is welltrained to the needs of the individual.” Hughes encourages families with autistic members who benefit from a quieter environment to visit the museum on Sunday mornings or Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons in May.

Group’s mission is to bring more live music and public concerts to Fishers By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com It was Sunday evening, and people were streaming into Christ the Savior Lutheran Church in Fishers. Cover story While it’s not unusual to attend church on Sundays, in this case, it was to hear the debut performance of the Fishers Chamber Orchestra. Yes, Fishers now has a chamber orchestra. It’s the latest music ensemble created by a group called Fishers Music Works that has organized five music ensembles in the last year. Fishers Music Works, founded in April 2013, is a locally based and locally funded group dedicated to enhancing culture and lifestyle in Fishers, by organizing live music performances that give Fishers a musical identity. To that end, within the past year, five distinct ensembles were created, and as many as 15 concerts have been presented. In addition to the March 23 premiere of the Fishers Chamber Orchestra, Nickel Plate Jazz Orchestra, a 20-piece big band/jazz ensemble, and Fishers Wind Symphony, a 45 to 50-piece concert band, each has presented four concerts. Also, the Indiana Heartland Brass Quintet played for the dedication of the Fishers Freedom Plaza Monument last July 7, and the Mudsock Jazz Combo has presented multiple concerts. Fishers Music Works co-founder, vice president and music director Dr. Keith Kunda said the mission of Fishers Music Works is to sponsor professional and semi-professional ensembles in Fishers and to provide educational opportunities that revolve around great music of the present and the past. “I believe that the time is right for Fishers to have its own adult instrumental ensembles,” said Kunda, who is a Fishers resident with a doctor of arts degree in orchestral conducting from Ball State University. “Fishers public schools do a superior job with all the performing arts: band, choir, orchestra, theater, and dance. But until a year ago there was nothing for adults. With over 80,000 residents, we are finding untapped performing talent as well as audience interest,” he said.   That untapped talent includes mostly professional musicians, according to FMW co-founder and Treasurer Doug Whisman, who said most have not been paid for their participation. He said the Nickel Plate Jazz Orchestra consists of musicians that are largely from Fishers and include many school band directors. The Fishers Wind Symphony and Chamber Orchestra musicians are

from Fishers and neighboring cities. Funding for any organization can be challenging and Whisman said most of the funding for the Fishers Music Works efforts come from private donations, tickets sales and the Fishers Arts Council. The Town of Fishers also pays for

several summer concerts that are presented for free at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater. Plans include several summer concerts this year with Fishers Parks and Recreation and probably a performance of the small jazz ensemble during Art in the Park May 31. But Whisman

said plans do not include the creation of any more ensembles. “With five ensembles and completing 15 concerts in the first year, we have no immediate plans for adding more performances or ensembles. The next major item on our agenda is partnering with Ji-Eun Lee Music Academy’s already established Piano and String Competition for students,” he said. As many as 150 people attended the debut performance of the chamber orchestra and Kunda said the outstanding response is very encouraging. “We are not trying to be the Indianapolis or Carmel Symphony orchestras. This is a smaller group (30 to 40 players), and we are focusing on performances of literature from the Baroque, Classical, and early Romantic periods. We are also working on partnering with singers (soloists or choirs), as well as finding ways to become a performing medium for concerto competition winners,” he said. Fishers Arts Council President Jocelyn Vare attended the Orchestra premiere and was very enthusiastic. “The debut of the Fishers Chamber Orchestra is meaningful to the Fishers community because it is a new opportunity for our local musicians to perform and a new opportunity for Fishers residents to support them. This ensemble is something special our community will take pride in and is marvelously entertaining, too!” The next concert will be of the Fishers Wind Symphony on April 27 at 7 p.m. at Christ the Savior Lutheran Church at 10500 E. 126th St., Fishers.

Sloth or the will to succeed Commentary by Terry Anker

One struggles with the concept of sloth. We enjoy a leisurely weekend on the sofa pretending to “catch-up” on vital recorded sit-coms all-thewhile sleeping soundly as our families cooperate with the fiction. But on Monday morning, we’re off again to confront the daily battles, of the working, first-world human. Yet one witnesses our progeny, arguably our closest genetic match, and we judge. Yes, we judge with reckless abandon. How dare they sleep until noon? How dare they eat seemingly endless calories without gaining the telltale weight that befalls those of us who have been blessed by “the good life?” But, now is their time. The sleep is precipitated by unregulated growth and surging hormones. While quarterly calculus finals amuse us compared to mortgage payments and angry in-laws, the stress of youth in present times is real and measurable. Without regard to our own challenges – often addressed as the two-way walk, uphill to school and back – it is true to

acknowledge that the modern world has delivered “modern” problems to even the youngest amongst our ranks. But if present day media has anything to say about it, humanity is doomed. The youth in our midst lack both the ability and the desire to carry their own weight. Could it be true? Are we nearing the end of our reign as the dominant species? Yet Roy and Katie Appleget from Burlington, Iowa, lived in a tent at a local campground for months on end accumulating the down-payment for their first home. While many took handouts, these working-class heroes decided to figure it out on their own. Does the will to succeed exceed our thirst for sloth; or is it simply that Roy and Katie have missed the virtue of Ferragamo or the latest iWhatever?

FR O M   T H E EDITOR A musical identity for Fishers There’s a group of people in our community that has been working for the past few years to bring professional and semi-professional musical ensembles to Fishers. The Nickel Plate Jazz Orchestra and the Fishers Wind Symphony are among the groups that have held several performances in the last year. Now, most recently, the Fishers Chamber Orchestra held its debut concert at Christ the Savior Lutheran Church and received a great reception. The organizing group, Fishers Music Works, believes it’s time that Fishers gets a musical identity to go along with all the other changes that the town is going through, such as becoming a city and electing the first mayor. We feature the group and the new Orchestra in this week’s cover story. One of the big changes coming to Fishers is downtown development. This past week the town held an open house and invited residents to come and express what they want to see at the proposed new train station. There was so much interest in the event on the part of the community that the town moved it from the Town Council auditorium to the Hamilton Southeastern High School gym. And there was a huge turnout. Read more inside. In anticipation of the growth and change Fishers is going through, the town along with the Fishers Arts Council created a Community Art Master Plan with the goal of planning and commissioning public art. That plan picked up an award recently at Ball State. Something that hasn’t changed in Fishers is the Holy Spirit at Geist fish fry. It’s been a tradition for 20 years now. We have more on that in this week’s issue, too. There are many good things happening in our community, from concerts to discussion about growth, to being recognized for planning our public art, to having the biggest fish fry in the whole area. All of it proves that Fishers is a great place to be. We want to hear from you. Thanks for reading Current in Fishers.

Time apart recharges the batteries Commentary by Danielle Wilson My husband has been getting on my nerves lately, which is why I was absolutely thrilled when he volunteered to take our humor oldest to Cincinnati for a soccer tournament. Sure, I had to suffer through a dance competition with more drama and hair spray than I’d experienced in 1987 at my all-girls high school, but the short break from spouse hood was sorely needed. Is that bad? Am I a terrible wife for wanting Doo out from under foot for a bit? It’s just that recently he’s totally been screwing with my highly sacred morning routine. See, I’m an introvert who spends all my waking hours either dealing with my own four children or 150 of other people’s. As such, I like to begin my day with as little stimulus as possible. Normally I come downstairs to a dark and sleepy main floor, make my coffee, feed the dog, finish lunches, and head out, having only spoken briefly to my oldest daughter. Last week, however, Doo beat me to the punch every morning! The TV was at full volume, every light was a-blazing, and my husband was rat-tat-tatting on his laptop, all by 5:30! And he wanted to talk. So my usual “me time” suddenly became “our time” and I was definitely not on board with it. Granted, I married Doo because he is an extrovert. I love that he thrives on sounds, lights, and lots of personal interaction. But normally said

extrovert is a night owl, which plays nicely into not only my morning requirements, but also my admittedly anal-bedtime environment. Black-hole darkness; vibrating sound machine, occasionally placed right underneath my noggin for ultimate chatter/television cancelling capability; argyle knee-sock-turned eye mask; and four not-too-hard, not-too-soft pillows. The name of the game is sensory deprivation, fans, so when Doo decides 9 o’clock is his time to crash, too, my carefully laid plans go to straight to hell. Obviously, my habits drive him bonkers just as much. He commented as he skipped out the door Saturday morning, “I can’t wait to sleep in a hotel tonight!” For both of us it seems, the time apart was lovely. We got to do our own things in the manner we like to do them without worrying about frustrating (or being frustrated by) each other’s preferences. And that made us both happier when he returned. I am a far better person when Doo’s around, and actually need his energy to get me through many a day. But the occasional solo weekend can definitely be a nice respite. Even if it involves some dance mania. Peace out.

Cathedral High School raises nearly half a million dollars for tuition assistance at annual gala ShamrAuction 2014 sets new fundraising records for school INDIANAPOLIS—March 12, 2014—Nicole Beasley, vice president for advancement at Cathedral High School, announces that the school’s annual fundraising gala, ShamrAuction, has raised $465,000 for tuition assistance and other vital student services. “This year’s effort set new records for attendance, sponsorship, donations, and dollars raised,” says Beasley. “We are humbled and blessed by the generosity of our Cathedral community.” “ShamrAuction is one of the oldest and biggest fundraising galas of its kind in the Midwest,” says Monica Pollom, Cathedral’s new director of events and corporate relations, “so the bar was set pretty high for success of this year’s event.” Tickets sold out several weeks prior to the February 22 event, marking a new attendance record of 820 in the event’s 37-year history. Sponsorships, too, reached a high-water mark in 2014 with 40 companies and individuals supporting tuition assistance through the ShamrAuction. “We are so pleased to have exceeded our fundraising goals by $30,000,” says Pollom. “Diversity is one of the core values here at Cathedral and supporting tuition assistance programs are one of the main ways the school maintains its geographic, religious, academic, economic, and racial diversity.” Cathedral High School currently draws students from more than 100 feeder schools and eight counties in central Indiana. The ShamrAuction depends heavily on parents, volunteers, and committees to create an event of this magnitude. “We have 360 volunteers involved,” says Mary Myers, assistant director of events and volunteer coordinator, “including committee members, parents, alumni, current faculty, administration, and staff along with the 210 Cathedral students who help make this night possible. Without them, the ShamrAuction wouldn’t exist.” This year’s co-chairs were Theresa Rhodes and Walter Niemczura both local business leaders and current Cathedral parents. Father Glenn O’Connor, pastor of St. Susanna Catholic Church, Tom Zupancic, Cathedral class of 1973, and Janelle Christie, Indianapolis Colts, served as the evening’s emcees and auctioneers.

A Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre ensemble cast dances during the entrance into Jerusalem in “Superhero: The Story of a Man Called Jesus.” (Submitted photo)

Passion of Christ told through dance By Terri Spilman editorial@youarecurrent.com The Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre’s original production of “Superhero: The Story of a Man Called Jesus” theatre has ascended as a not-tobe-missed Easter tradition running April 4 and 5 at the Tarkington Theatre at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. “I just felt like I wanted to do a danced version of the Passion,” said Artistic Director Gregory Hancock. “There have been many movies made of the Passion, I don’t think there’s been too many danced versions. It is such a compelling story and so interesting, with a lot of interesting characters so I decided to create my version of it.” This critically acclaimed, full-length modern ballet follows the last week of the life of Jesus as told through the perspective of Jesus and the women surrounding him, and his complicated relationships with Judas Iscariot. Even the cast is predominately female with only two males out of 60 cast members. “The piece kind of starts out with a rock concert feel, people are sometimes

just a little surprised or taken aback, but there is this evolution that happens and by the end it feels very classical and beautiful.” Hancock created the contemporary soundtrack from a variety of music sources that includes pop music from artists such as U2 and Rob Thomas as well as some music from film. Hancock uses bright colors and costume influences from many places in the world. “We are all kind of programmed that Jesus needs to be dressed in a white robe but I don’t know why. That’s the beauty of art. We can kind of add our feelings or our impressions of things to it. It’s a very personal piece for me as most of my work is.” Superhero features Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre veteran dancers Martin Casanova as Jesus, Heather Helene King as Mother Mary, Melanie Eakman as Mary Magdalene and guest artist Liang Fu as Judas.

“Superhero: The Story of a Man Called Jesus” is a critically acclaimed, full-length modern ballet that follows the last week of the life of Jesus told through the perspective of Jesus, the women surrounding him and his complicated relationship with Judas Iscariot.

What’s that ringing in my ears? Commentary by Marty Wood Do you have a ringing, humming, clicking or buzzing sound in your ears? You may have a condition known as Tinnitus (tinhearing uh-tus), which is a perception of sound that has no external source. Tinnitus is usually associated with hearing loss. Other common causes are exposure to loud noise, the natural aging process, a head injury or trauma, and a side effect from medications, including aspirin. Tinnitus can affect daily activities and lifestyle by impacting one’s ability to concentrate, socialize, perform well at work, and enjoy reading and recreational activity. Presently there is no cure for tinnitus, but there are several approaches to reducing its effects. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating properly and exercising is beneficial. This can also reduce stress and help improve concentration. If you are taking aspirin or other medications, discuss your tinnitus with your physician and hearing professional. Some people feel their tinnitus interferes with their ability to hear, however, if you have tinnitus

it is likely that you have a hearing loss as well. It is important to have your hearing tested and if necessary, address your loss with a hearing aid. Hearing aids improve your ability to communicate, reduce the stress associated with intensive listening and have shown the ability to mask the symptoms of tinnitus. When properly fit by a hearing professional, a digital programmable hearing aid may reduce, and in some cases eliminate the symptoms of tinnitus. While tinnitus is relatively common, for several people the effects can be severe enough that it becomes disabling. If you experience tinnitus, you should have your hearing tested and describe what you are hearing to your hearing health professional. Beware of exaggerated claims and advertisements that suggest a cure for tinnitus and always consult with your health and hearing professional first. Marty Wood is the owner of Zounds Hearing of Fishers, 11852 Allisonville Rd. He may be contacted at 608-1310.

The facts about antibiotics use Commentary by Andrew McLaren, MD We’ve read and heard about the serious healthcare issue of “antibiotic resistance” for years. What does it really wellness mean, and what do we need to remember about antibiotics the next time a cold or sore throat strikes? First, it’s important to know what antibiotics treat – and what they don’t. Antibiotics kill bacteria and are effective in treating bacterial infections. They don’t kill viruses, which typically cause many common ailments, such as cold, flu and other viral illnesses. If we continually take antibiotics for illnesses that won’t appropriately respond to them, these medicines may not work when we do need them because bacteria can develop resistance to them. It works like this. Every time we take antibiotics, there is a greater chance there will be some bacteria left behind that the medicine doesn’t kill. Over time, these bacteria become stronger and more antibiotic resistant. Thus, antibiotic overuse has the potential to create “super bugs” – illnesses we aren’t able to treat effectively with the antibiotics we have available. Additionally, antibiotics have side effects, so

using them wisely – and for the right reasons – is recommended. While many of the side effects are mild and don’t affect everyone, antibiotics can cause nausea and diarrhea and may make users more sensitive to sunlight. These medicines also kill most of the bacteria in the body that react to them – even the “good” bacteria that we need to maintain healthy systems. This can lead to complications, such as upset stomach, diarrhea and vaginal infections. Because the human body has tremendous capabilities to heal itself, many common viral illnesses will eventually resolve without medications, and you’ll feel better. This is true for the majority of sore throat cases and even most cases of bronchitis. As always, consult your primary care doctor if you have an illness that lasts longer than a couple of weeks. Understanding the facts about antibiotics and working in partnership with your doctor, you’ll be better able to make the best decisions about when medications are needed to treat illness. Andrew McLaren, MD, specializes in family medicine at IU Health Physicians Primary Care at IU Health North Hospital, 11725 N. Illinois St., Suite 595, Carmel. He may be contacted at 688-5522.

Tips on maximizing Social Security Commentary by Joel Haris Social Security often is one of the most overlooked aspects of proper retirement income planning. Here are some specific finance rules to keep in mind as you start factoring your Social Security benefits into your retirement planning. You contribute 6.2 percent of your income Workers pay 6.2 percent of their earnings into the Social Security system, up to $117,000 in 2014. Employers pay a matching 6.2 percent for each worker. Self-employed workers must contribute 12.4 percent of their income annually. How your benefit is calculated Social Security payments are calculated based on your 35 highest-earning years in the workforce, and are also adjusted for inflation. If you don’t have 35 years of earnings, zeros are averaged in for the years you didn’t pay into Social Security. Know your full retirement age You can collect the full amount of Social Security you have earned at what the Social Security Administration calls your full retirement age, which varies based on your birth year. It is very important to know when your full retirement age is because of earnings limit restrictions if you file early, potential spousal benefit strategies at or after full retirement age, and timing of benefits as part of your overall retirement income planning strategy. The current ages for full retirement benefits are 65 and 8 months for those born in 1941, 65 and 10 months if born in 1942, 66 for those born between 1943-1954, 66 and 2 months in 1955, 66 and 4 months in 1956, 66 and 6 months in 1957, 66 and 8 months in 1958, 66 and 10 months in 1959, and 67 for anyone born after 1960. Know the income limitation rule If you elect to take benefits before your full retirement age, please make sure you’re aware of the income limitation rule on earned income as it relates to benefits possibly being withheld. In 2014, $1 of benefits will be withheld for every $2 in earnings above $15,480. This rule is applicable every year until your reach full retirement age and can change each year. It is imperative to take this rule into consideration because the benefits you were expecting could be dramatically reduced.

You get bigger checks if you delay claiming You can increase your Social Security checks by delaying when you sign up for Social Security. For example, people born in 1943 or later will get 8 percent larger payments for each year they delay claiming after their full retirement age, up to age 70. After age 70, there is no additional benefit to delaying claiming Social Security. Subsequently, your benefits could be reduced by as much as 25 percent if you elect to take them at 62 versus your full retirement age. Married couples have additional options Married couples are entitled to claim Social Security based on their own work record, or payments worth up to 50 percent of the higher earner’s benefit. And when one spouse dies, the surviving spouse will receive an amount equal to the higher earner’s benefit. Ex-spouses are also eligible for Social Security benefits if the marriage lasted at least 10 years. Couples who have reached their full retirement age can even claim spousal payments, and then later switch to payments based on their own work record, which will then be higher due to delayed claiming. Payments are adjusted for inflation Social Security payments are adjusted each year to keep up with inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index. These cost of living adjustments will vary from year to year, so please pay close attention to how inflation can potentially impact your future benefits. Social Security benefits may be taxed Unfortunately, there really isn’t a way to get completely away from paying taxes to Uncle Sam. Please work with a competent professional to help you understand if your Social Security payments will be taxed. View your Social Security statement online The Social Security Administration has stopped mailing paper Social Security statements to most workers due to budgetary restrictions. You’ll need to create a Social Security online account and log in to view your statement. You can do this by visiting www.ssa.gov. Joel Harris is a financial advisor with TFA. He may be reached at 507.-825.

In 1887, 300 French writers and artists signed a petition demanding that erection “of this useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower” travel be halted immediately. What the petitioners called “a giddy, ridiculous tower dominating Paris like a gigantic black smokestack” has become a beloved symbol of Paris, each year attracting almost seven million visitors, more than any other paid monument in the world. The Eiffel Tower is named for Gustave Eiffel, a French engineer who gained fame in 1880 for his innovative design for an iron truss skeleton for the Statue of Liberty, replacing the planned masonry core. Maurice Koechlin, a member of Eiffel’s firm who worked on that design, learned of a need for an entrance arch near the left bank of the Seine for a world’s fair commemorating the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. He and colleague Émile Nouguiera proposed an iron lattice arch extending into a tower 300 meters high, far taller than any man-made structure. Initially lukewarm, Eiffel eventually championed the idea of showing the capabilities of iron for very tall structures. His firm’s design, enhanced by architect Émile Nouguiera, was se-

lected in 1886. When the Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889, it nearly doubled the height of the Washington Monument, built entirely of stone. As originally approved, the Eiffel Tower was to be disassembled after 20 years and its 7,300 tons of iron and 2.5 million rivets sold as scrap. But Gustave Eiffel had other ideas. Soon after the tower’s opening, he began inviting scientists to use it for experiments requiring great heights. In 1919, as the permit was to expire, antennae atop the tower began sending radio signals throughout France and the Eiffel Tower earned a permanent place in the Parisian skyline. The Eiffel Tower remained the world’s tallest man-made structure until the Chrysler Building surpassed it in 1930, incorporating a steel skeleton pioneered by William Le Baron Jenney, an engineering classmate of Gustave Eiffel in Paris. Today, thanks to Eiffel and his classmate, no one would think of building a tall structure without the “hateful column of bolted sheet metal” disparaged by Eiffel’s nineteenth century critics.

Cosmetic kitchen upgrade lowers project budget

Commentary by Larry Greene

EXISTING KITCHEN: This home, in the Hamilton Proper development in Fishers, was built in 1994. For about two blueprint for years, the owners have improvement wanted to remodel their original kitchen. The existing cabinets were still in good shape – but the rest of the kitchen seemed outdated. The original white Corian countertops were showing their age and the appliances were outdated. The owners wanted to update without spending as much money as a full remodel requires. The existing layout of the kitchen worked well, so the focus became cosmetic upgrades. COUNTERTOP AND BACKSPLASH AREA: The rich colors of the Uba Tuba granite and the coordinating Baoding Creme Quartz Brick backsplash tile contrast nicely with the existing white cabinetry. Carrying the backsplash tile up to the ceiling behind the range hood added to the visual interest. CABINET MODIFICATIONS: The old appliances were replaced with new coordinating stainless steel appliances. Existing wall cabinets above the gas range had to be removed to make way for the new wall-mounted vent hood. The existing double oven cabinet opening was also modified to accept the new ovens. PLUMBING FIXTURES & HARDWARE: The existing plumbing fixtures were replaced in-

before & after

cluding new Kraus brand 33-inch double bowl undermount stainless steel sink with a new Kohler single handle faucet and matching soap dispenser. All new fixtures were done in brushed nickel. New brushed nickel cabinet knobs were installed to provide a cohesive look with the rest of the kitchen.

RESULT: In the end, the homeowners certainly achieved the modern look they had been dreaming of without making dramatic changes to the cabinetry or footprint of the kitchen. The upgraded granite countertops, warm colored tiled backsplash, coordinating plumbing fixtures and hardware came together to create a kitchen worthy of this beautiful home.
