Company creates give back program By Holly Kline • firstname.lastname@example.org Fishers-based Piro Shoes recently created a charitable program that donates shoes to those in need. Philanthropy Piro’s give-back program is PIRO HAS (Hearts, Arts & Soles) and the goal is to donate 10,000 pairs of shoes by the end of this year. PIRO CEO and President Peter Asquini explained that the plan for PIRO HAS is to request artistic designs from well-known artists, athletes or celebrities. Those designs will be made into a high-quality shirt available for sale at pirohas. com. Each sale results in one pair of donated shoes. This is the first year for the PIRO HAS program and the donated shoes will be distributed to Americans in need via the Tennessee-based Soles 4 Souls charity organization. The first PIRO HAS artist is Nekoda Witsken, a Fishers native who painted the initial Fishers public art mural for the 116th & Jaycee streets. pocket park. Witsken donated a vibrant and colorful design to PIRO HAS, “Love Does Not See in Black and White,” which became a unique piece of wearable art. “To work for a donation program is to work towards everything I want my art to represent,” Witsken said. “The fact that we are translating paint strokes into shoes for needy American kids really highlights the power of art in a community setting.” Asquini is thrilled to work with Witsken. “Neko-

da is the first artist we went into production with. She has the same sort of philosophy about giving back so it’s a good partnership.” Next, Asquini hopes to expand the number of products available through PIRO HAS. “Now that I have rolled it out and we worked out the process, the logistics and all of that, we’re ready to start being able to implement more well-known celebrities,” he said. “We would like to be able to get someone from a sports team to donate for us and Rapper Bow Wow has expressed an interest,” said Asquini. “Piro Shoes has been in business since January 2009,” Asquini said. “Right now we design and manufacture higher-end shoes that are handmade in Italy.” Asquini wants his company to be one that give back and set up PIRO HAS to fulfill that philosophy.

Listening to His words
Commentary by Heather Kestian
“If you don’t go to church, you don’t love God.” Good one, God. Yes, I am listening. This was my child’s report Plain talk after school one day. A friend of his gave him this little nugget of knowledge. He further hypothesized, “Mama, you don’t go to church, is it true you don’t love God?” My reply, “Is that true for you?” “No!” he snapped back. Well, it isn’t for me either, so let’s talk about this.” It has been quite a spiritual and religious journey for me over the years. I am, by my very nature, a wonderer. I was raised Methodist, and while in college, found a spiritual home in Catholicism. Though, since college graduation, I have once again found myself wondering. I must admit, I just have not found my place in a church. I am fairly liberal in my world views. I have this crazy notion that we are all equal in the eyes of God. I also like to think that “love thy neighbor” means all my neighbors, not simply the ones who look, act, or think like me. I also like to think that God speaks to all of us,
if we are willing to listen. And I listen. I listen intently to His words as they come to me through my children’s voices, through my husband’s words, and through the world around me. I share these messages and words with my children. You could say I haven’t quite found my way— and I think that is OK. I often have more questions than answers. Does the act of going to church mean you love God more than if you don’t attend church? Is this really the question we should be asking? I have to believe that at the heart of religion or spirituality are some very simple truths. Be kind and loving to others, listen, give freely of yourself, be gentle and fair, forgive others and learn from your mistakes. I believe if I can do these things everyday, with or without church attendance, that at the end of my life, God will be waiting with open arms and we will have a great chat. 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.

3 Democrats seek seat in Congress By Adam Aasen • firstname.lastname@example.org Two years ago, U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks took over the seat of longtime Republican congressman Dan Burton, who had served 30 years in that office. This year, three government Democratic candidates are vying for a chance to try and flip the seat across the political aisle. Brooks, who represents Indiana’s 5th Congressional District, defeated Scott Reske with 58 percent of the vote in 2012. If she wins her Republican primary, she will face one of three Democratic opponents, which includes an engineer, an educator and a veteran. The primary date is May 6. None of the Democratic applicants have previously held elected office. Allen Ray Davidson Throughout his career as an engineer, Allen Ray Davidson said he’s made it his mission to reduce waste and increase efficiency in government. The 45-year-old Fishers resident said he has the technical skills necessary to fix the problems in government. He points to his experience as a pavement design engineer Davidson for the Indiana Department of Transportation. “I have served the state of Indiana well in my career, to the benefit of all Hoosiers,” Davidson said. “However, I feel that my skills can be better utilized in Washington D.C., for the benefit of all Americans.” Davidson said he’s also familiar with environmental law due to his work with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. Davidson has a daughter, 9-year-old Tanisha, and a son, 4-year-old Ruhan. He has a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from Texas Tech University. Shawn Denney Some politicians talk about the tough economy, but Shawn Denney said he’s seen it firsthand. The 41-year-old Lawrence Township resident said he had a stable, well-paying job in the insurance and investments industry, but, “in the blink
of an eye I found myself on the unemployment line.” “Like me, many people have to find other job opportunities, learn new trades and develop second careers,” he said. “I want to be that voice in Washington that speaks up and advocates for America’s middle and working class.” That year, Denney took on a Denney new role as educator, teaching young minds about U.S. and world history. He said that gives him insight into what’s good and bad about the state’s education system, one of his top focuses if he is elected. Denney has three children, Perrin, 15, Charles Kalvin, seven, and Liam, 18 months. He is engaged to Amber Stearns. He holds a master’s degree from the University of Indianapolis. David Ford The youngest of the three potential candidates, David Ford doesn’t turn 30 until the day before the general election. But Ford said that doesn’t mean he’s inexperienced. He has served eight years in the U.S. Air Force, including stays at Fort Carson in Colorado and Osan Air Base in South Korea. Since he was honorably discharged in September 2013, he said he’s been focused on his political career. Ford said he’s concerned about the lawmakers representing Indiana. He notes that the number of members of Congress who have served in the armed forces is at an alltime low. He believes elected officials should see their job as a selfless duty, not a perk. “Washington politicians are out of touch. They are so busy high-fiving each other and patting each other on the Ford back that they have forgotten that they serve at the pleasure of the people,” he said. “Too often, they return to their districts only to fundraise so they can go back to Washington. They believe that the people serve the establishment.” Ford lives in Westfield with his wife, Marcella, and their 6-month-old son Ethan.

Most of us are very good at making excuses. We can rationalize almost anything if we try hard enough. This is especially perspective true of voting. When I ask people whether they voted in the most recent election, I get a variety of answers. Some say they don’t have time. Others say they don’t have a candidate to support. Many tell me their single vote won’t make a difference. With Fishers’ first city election coming up three weeks from now, allow me to give you just a few facts. I went back to the Current in Fishers archives and found the results of our last municipal election. Voters went to the polls in May 2011 for the Republican primary election. Two town council contests caught my eye. In Council District 1, Pete Peterson won by just 12 votes. There were 3,840 votes cast in that district race. Peterson won by a percentage of .29 percent. In the race for Council District 3, Rene Cox won by a margin of only 25 votes. A total of 3,427 votes were tallied in that contest. Cox was a winner by a percentage margin of only .6 percent. Why are these facts important? Because it puts to rest the fallacy that your single vote
doesn’t count. In the two town council races I cited above, if 13 additional people had voted for one of Peterson’s opponents, we would have another council member in District 1. Only 26 votes for Cox’s opponent would have provided a different result. Here’s another important fact. In all of Hamilton County, in the 2011 primary election, fewer than 15 percent of the registered voters bothered to cast a ballot, according to the Hamilton County Elections Office. I do understand that we are busy people. We must find time for our jobs, families and other important activities. But what more important civic duty do we have than voting in an election? If you are a Republican and you are registered to vote, think carefully about this election. There are six candidates for mayor of Fishers. There are races for city clerk and city council. There is only one unopposed candidate, Pete Peterson in Council District 1 (Southeast). Take the time to find out about the candidates and their positions. Decide which candidates are in line with your vision of what the City of Fishers should be. Don’t make an excuse.

3 Republicans bid for Congress By Pete Smith • email@example.com When U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks took over the seat of longtime Republican congressman Dan Burton, who had served 30 years in that office, she had to stand out in a government crowded field. Brooks, who represents Indiana’s 5th Congressional District, defeated Scott Reske with 58 percent of the vote in 2012. This year, she appears to have a challenge from an upstart candidate who enjoys Tea Party support and another who lives outside the district. The 5th District contains the northern portion of Marion County and all of Indianapolis’ northern suburbs, and it stretches as far north as Marion. THE INCUMBENT Susan Brooks – Brooks said she is most proud of helping constituents resolve 76 percent of the issues they have brought to her office and the passage of the SKILLS Act in Congress in March 2013. The bill would help to alleviate the current skills gap in the workforce by modernizing federal job-training programs and Brooks removing roadblocks that prevent job-seekers from receiving the in-demand training needed for many modern careers. Brooks said her main goals over the next year are to pass legislation that repeals and replaces Obamacare with patient-centered reforms, and pass legislation that creates an environment for economic growth, business investment and job creation. She said those are in line with Republican goals to cut wasteful government spending, pay down the national debt, simplify the tax code, secure the border, confront terrorist threats and restore the balance of power created by the nation’s founders by assuring the executive branch respects and abides by the laws Congress passes. But she said she sees this primary as a chance for voters to choose who will best take on Obamacare and improve job prospects and job security in Indiana.
THE CHALLENGERS David Stockdale – David Stockdale said he decided to run for Congress because young folks like him, Tea Party folks and Libertarian-leaning Republicans, have become frustrated with the old guard in the party. Stockdale said he would represent the Constitution and his constituents – not just the party. He said the nation is at a turning point because many people see no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Stockdale The three central issues he sees being at stake in this primary are selecting a candidate who represents constituents and the Constitution, someone who will work for smaller government and less spending and someone who will work to uphold the Bill of Rights and not allow the NSA to continue infringing on citizens’ rights. With regard to the economy, he said he would support the Fair Tax as a means of tax reform, and that there’s a need for entitlement reform, regulatory reform and transferring authority back to the states. Stockdale said he would ask voters to realize that even though he hasn’t held elected office, he meets the Constitutional requirements to run for Congress. He said he thinks that the best candidates often are the ones who have successfully run their own business and that this election will provide a chance to stop the growth of government. Mike Campbell – Current in Carmel made numerous attempts to solicit answers from Campbell, but received none by press time. Campbell does not reside within the boundaries of the 5th District and maintains a home in Cambridge City, in the eastern portion of central Indiana. Curent is not aware of a campaign website, campaign manager or even a fundraiser for the candidate. Questions for Campbell can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. ••• Note: to read the full version of this story visit www.currentincarmel.com

Field of Dreams Current in Fishers
An early Fishers resident’s dream of building a golf course comes true two generations later
View of the first hole of Balmoral Golf Club.
By John Cinnamon • email@example.com Imagine Fishers in 1935. It was little more than a stop along the railroad with a population you could practically count on your fingers and toes and still leave one shoe on. It was during that era that an Indianapolis COVER STORY entrepreneur by the name of John William Speicher acquired 80 acres at the northeast corner of 96th Street and Allisonville Road. By 1949, roughly the southern half of Speicher’s land was plotted for development. J.W. – as he was known – chose a small spot toward the north end of the other half and built a house there for him and his wife, leaving much of the remaining acreage for farming. After a few years in the home, he also built something else on his little parcel of land, a golf hole. There was no tee, no fairway, no bunkers; just a closely mown area of grass with a hole. J.W. enjoyed golf, but from all indications, his foray into golf course design in the mid-1950s was a bust. He mowed his makeshift green a couple of times, but it was never really playable and J.W. eventually allowed it to be consumed by the rest of his yard. But 45 years later, J.W. Speicher’s dream of backyard golf was realized when his grandsons, Rick and Lyman Eaton designed, built, and opened Balmoral Golf Club in 1999. Dr. Rick and Diane Eaton are now the owners of Balmoral and have a home next to the No. 1 tee. “I always tell people it was a big backyard project,” said Diane. Some people plant flower Diane Eaton beds or build a patio. The Eatons built a ninehole golf course. The land J.W. Speicher acquired back in the mid30s remains in the family to this day, passing through four generations. The Eatons built their house there in 1986. Rick’s brother, Lyman, and his wife also built a house on the property a short
time later. Speicher’s love of golf also was passed down. Not long after building their home, Rick and Diane decided to build a golf hole in the yard for their personal use. Unlike J.W.’s, this one was actually playable. It was a 150-yard par 3 with the tee box next to the original windmill from when the land was a farm. Lyman followed suit with a golf hole of his own and that was the extent of their golf course design … for a while. Then came the 96th Street widening project in the late 1990s. Having acquired large amounts Rick Eaton of dirt from local construction companies for various projects before, the Eatons were approached to see if they would be interested in 1,500 truckloads of dirt that would need to be hauled from the road construction site. Rick saw this as an opportunity to add seven more holes to the land that had recently stopped being farmed. “There’s not a single person who’s played golf for any length of time who doesn’t look at a piece of ground and say, ‘I can design a golf course’,” said Rick, an orthopedic surgeon at Community Hospital and Hancock Regional Hospital. “The only difference with us is that it came true.” Rick and Lyman set about designing the course themselves, sketching out holes with design characteristics that fit their particular playing abilities. The construction company delivering the dirt agreed to build three ponds and do the rough grading for the golf course. The Eatons acted as general contractors for the project, subcontracting for the final grading, seeding, irrigation, and getting their own hands dirty. “We planted all the flowers and trees,” said Diane. Rick even tried his hand at bulldozing, with less than successful results. By 1999, the course was ready for play, but only for family and friends. However, the lack of a clubhouse, combined with the
Eaton’s Revenge Balmoral Golf Club bills itself as a “stunning 9-hole design.” But there’s actually a 10th hole. Used mainly for short-game practice and instruction, the 130-yarder with three holes cut in the green is also where friendly on-course wagers are settled. The game most commonly played on the hole has come to be known as “Eaton’s Revenge.” A player hits their tee shot, and only then – while the ball is still in the air – do they call out which of the three pins they’re playing to.
proximity of the Eaton’s home to the first tee and the course clearly visible from Willow View Road, led to strangers knocking on Rick and Diane’s door asking about the course. “We would have people driving up the driveway, stopping all the time and asking if they could be members,” recalls Diane, a member of the Hamilton Southeastern School Board and busy community volunteer. That changed in 2003 with the addition of a clubhouse. Still, maintaining a USGA-rated nine-hole golf course is no inexpensive venture, even if it’s only for a handful of golfers. “At a point, it did become a business,” said Rick. “It had gone from being purely the backyard to being something that was financially draining. If it was going to continue to exist it needed to have some way of at least trying to break even.”
(Above) Willow View Road as a dirt road circa 1950, and today.
In 2007, the decision was made to open the club to limited membership. Balmoral’s growth continued in 2013 with the addition of its first and only Director of Golf, Sam Foley. “The idea is to introduce the course to more people,” said Foley, a golf pro and owner of Golf365, a high-tech indoor golf facility in Noblesville. “Every person that plays or steps on the property probably will fall in love with it, like everybody tends to do.” Foley also brought his Sam Foley Golf Academy to Balmoral, offering professional instruction and playing lessons. Balmoral Golf Club, 10101 Hamilton Hills Ln, will host open houses the final two Saturdays this month, including a “Big Break: Balmoral” event April 26, featuring Fishers resident and pro golfer Kristi O’Brien, a contestant on Golf Channel’s “Big Break: Florida”. Membership information is available at www.balmoralgolfclub.com. J.W. Speicher’s original golf hole may be long gone, but his modest ranch home remains. And the golf course that surrounds it

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie
Hypocrisy in the springtime
As you may know, President Barack Obama is once again leading from behind and is reaching for the same tired arguments of the past in hopes of Democrats gaining ground in the upcoming midterm elections. His latest dime-store strategy: The pay gap between men and women. Well, according to an Associated Press story, an analysis conducted by the conservative American Enterprise Institute, found Obama’s female aides were paid 88 cents for every dollar paid to men, about $65,000 to $73,729 annually. But here’s the really wonderful display of hypocrisy: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney argued the comparison is based on aggregate wages that include the lowest salaries at the White House, adding, “which may or may not be - depending on the institution - filled by more women than men.” OK, so let’s get this straight: It’s fine for government to use this excuse, but in the private sector, something untoward is taking place. Ah, yes, there is nothing quite like liberal hypocrisy in the springtime. ••• To those who are in line with us for the annual fleecing today, misery loves company, we suppose. Before we blink, Tax Liberation Day (not a real holiday) will be somewhere around Thanksgiving. Once and for all, reduce spending, cut government bloat and let’s have some meaningful leadership! ••• It’s going to be all right, folks. Stay with us on this. At about the time you awakened today, the Town of Fishers was to have closed the intersection of 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard/Lantern Road for the construction of a two-lane roundabout. It’s a $1.5-million, locally funded project and well worth the expenditure. Under the heading of “The Pleasure will be Worth the Pain,” this will significantly improve traffic flow when completed (in approximately 60 days). There will be streetlights and an asphalt path to the east, north and west, the latter of which is to connect with the Cheeney Creek Trail. For updates, visit www.fishers.in.us.

Commentary by Terry Anker
As much as we humans are the same (our tolerance for climate, days without water and isolation from each other fall into fairly narrow bands), we take a near excessive pride in our distinctions. Amused by this reality, one might suggest to the latest brand of hipster that the excessive goal of uniqueness only ensures that one is different in exactly the same way as all others who seek distinction in entirely the same way! We cannot entirely escape the subtle cues that expose our history and predict our potentials regardless of one’s facial hair or body art. Communities, too, find little safe-harbor from these indications. Each, in its own way, betrays the secrets of its past, tells the story of its present and unwittingly forecasts a projection of its future. Athens recalls a storied history with grand edifices perched at the Acropolis but its present-day empty store fronts and careless graffiti speak to its contemporary challenges to keep up with northern Europe. Present day London is bustling with commerce. The streets are
filled in the early morning with citizens navigating the many construction sites converting notable buildings into more modern configurations. One is immersed in wealth. Bentley’s wiz by transporting harried fund-managers to the first stop on the daily schedule. But even here, does the empire wane? Russian oligarchs are displacing the local aristocracy with brute force and sheer wealth. For either of these two examples, will the future carry decline or renaissance? And, what indicators can help them to influence that trajectory. In our own cities and towns, we can find the same watermarks. Are we brick streets, or performance halls, or sports fields, or town squares, or lakes, or green pastures? Are we robust or sickly? Most importantly, are we paying attention? Time alone will tell.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK There is nothing more dangerous than the moment you become a hostage to yesterday’s comfort zone.
- Rob Thompson
My wife and I went on a binge last week. If you think I’m talking about an eating binge, you’ve never seen how thin we humor both are. If you think I mean a shopping binge, you don’t know how cheap we are. And if you think it was cleaning binge, you’ve never been in our basement. The binge we did go on is a little embarrassing. I will admit that after this binge it would have been very inappropriate to drive. Oh, we weren’t drinking. But we were much too tired to get behind the wheel. We had just watched 12 episodes of the Netflix series, House of Cards, the political drama starring Kevin Spacey as the conniving congressman and then Vice President of the United States. Binge watching, as most of you know, is the act of viewing all of – or a good portion of - a particular TV series in one sitting. Generally, the term is restricted to contemporary critically acclaimed television shows, so if you once sat through 39 episodes of The Honeymooners or 112 of Andy of Mayberry, well that just doesn’t qualify (Although, you have impressed the heck out of me). On a Monday afternoon we started with Season 1, Episode 1. We watched for about six straight hours, until we realized that by being glued to the TV for this show, we were avoiding any contact with each other, so we switched to ABC and turned on Dancing with the Stars where we could disagree on which dancers were romantically involved with their partners. The next day we went back to House of Cards. Yes, I figured out how to make that switch. At least I thought so. We were soon totally shocked to see (SPOLIER ALERT) the Vice President push (SPOILER ALERT) the newspaper reporter in front of a (SPOILER ALERT) moving train. “Well I didn’t see that coming,” said my wife Neither did the reporter, by the way). “But I think this is a very exciting chapter 14.” “Wait a second,” I said, as the show ended and they previewed the next one. “That was Episode 16. Not 14. That’s why we were confused. We missed two episodes. Netflix was still running while we were watching Dancing with the Stars.” We watched 14, 15 and then 16 (again) and finished all the remaining episodes this season, but we’ll be glad when the series is finally over. My wife said she’s had enough of Kevin Spacey pandering to the public for votes, making illegal moves and destroying his competition. I didn’t have the heart to tell Mary Ellen that next year, Kevin Spacey will be doing exactly the same thing … on Dancing with the Stars.

A vacation from motherhood Commentary by Danielle Wilson I think everyone would agree that this past winter was a tough one. Long, cold, and way too many school cancellations and humor delays. As a teacher, I desperately needed this Spring Break just to catch a breather. The stress of planning makeup lessons and quickening the pace had left me overwhelmed and frazzled. Unfortunately, my kids are in a different school system, and the calendars did not coincide this year. Not wanting to be stuck here though, Doo finagled a way for him and our kids to get to Florida through a one-way flight out of Kentucky, a rental mini-van in Tampa, and a long drive home up constructionridden I-65. I would remain here, since I’d be back to work by then. Actually, I was looking forward to both weeks. The first would give me seven hours each day to myself while my minions were at school. And I’d finally get to catch up on all those put-off house projects. I even scheduled a few fun things, like getting a spray-tan (No UVA rays for this ginger, but I still like to look alive), and going for my annual pap smear (nothing says vacation like “speculum!”). What I didn’t count on was the fact that the kids weren’t on break yet. So there was still dance, track, violin, tumbling, soccer, band, and orthodontics appointments to coordinate. I still had to get up at six every morning and organize lunches and pets. I still had to prep dinner and
help with homework. Restful? Relaxing? Not as much as I’d anticipated. Is it any wonder I was thoroughly disheartened and a tad bitter when I tromped back into school the following Monday, knowing my husband was sipping Mai Tais on a warm beach? Unexpectedly though, I actually enjoyed getting back to my students and daily routine. Turns out, teaching hadn’t been bogging me down as much as the demands of parenting had been. So that second week was heaven! Sure, I had to work, but when I came home, I had nothing to do. The house was still clean; I had no carpooling duties nor schedules to coordinate; I didn’t have to ground a teenager or even create a last minute life-size drawing of Eli Lilly for Famous Hoosier Day. I ate cereal for dinner, watched the entire second season of Downtown Abbey, and was able to turn off all the lights at 9 o’clock. No guilt, no marital friction, no kid drama. It was honestly a fantastic pseudo-Spring Break! What’s the moral of my tale? Sand and surf aren’t the only ways to recuperate from a nasty winter. A vacation from motherhood can work just as well. Peace out.

‘I Love A Piano’ a tribute to Irving Berlin’s genius By Terri Spilman • email@example.com
In the spirit of preserving the Great American Songbook, The Actors Theatre of Indiana is closing out its 2013-14 season with a salute to one of America’s most beloved lyricists and songwriters. theatre “I Love A Piano” will showcase songwriter Irving Berlin’s music and life when it comes to the Studio Theatre stage April 25 in the Center for the Performing Arts. “I Love a Piano” is an all-singing, alldancing revue that includes more than 60 of Berlin’s
classic songs, such as “Blue Skies,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “Cheek to Cheek,” “Anything You Can Do,” “God Bless America,” and, the show’s namesake, “I Love a Piano,” interspersed with tidbits of information about Berlin’s life. Berlin’s history as a Jewish immigrant from Russia along with his innate hopeful romanticism will set the scene for simple stories about everyday American life set to beautiful melodies that have become a soundtrack of the 20th century. Berlin’s accomplishments are truly amazing considering he never studied music, let alone maintained the ability to read or write it. His career started out of necessity after the death of his father, so he became a singing waiter who composed his own music as it garnered bigger tips. “Some people who praise his work say that he Shepard was such a genius because of the simplicity of the language,” said Kenny Shepard, co-director and co-choreographer of ATI’s production. “It was just bare bones. These are the words, these are the simple melodies, and the marriage of the two touch your heart.” Both Indianapolis natives, Shepard and Carol Worcel, his business partner and Worcel co-director and co-choreographer, specialize in musical storytelling and use their many years of national touring experience. They plan to use their talents to exquisitely tell the story of Berlin’s music through song and dance complete with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers ballroom elegance, 1940’s dance hall swing and a showstopping tap extravaganza. The show also includes a Falling in Love section featuring Berlin’s famous love songs, a storyline focused on his movie music, a Fifth Avenue section complete with a mock Easter Parade and a small wedding as well as the show-stopper, “There’s No Business Like Show Business” from “Annie Get Your Gun.” Berlin, a World War I veteran was also very patriotic and wrote songs about his love for America, with the most famous being “God Bless America,” which was made famous by singer Kate Smith and gained a new significance following the Sept. 11 attacks. The cast features Cynthia Collins, Michael Dotson, Judy Fitzgerald, Don Farrell, Bradley Reynolds and Mary Jayne Waddell - all veteran actors who have appeared in numerous ATI shows. Michael Berkeley arranged the music and will be at the helm of the baby grand piano. “I think it’s a great opportunity for new audiences to get to know the resident company, and if they can walk away and feel like they know a little more about Irving Berlin and about our performers, then we have done our job,” Shepard said. At 2 p.m. May 4, ATI will also host a “Behind the Curtain” talk with the cast, designers and Chris Lewis, program director for the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative, immediately following the performance. “I Love A Piano” • April 25 though May 11 • Studio Theatre • The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel • Tickets start at $20 • For more information call 843-3800 or visit www. thecenterfortheperformingarts.org

Kids can watch Peeps experiments during the Easter Celebration at Conner Prairie in Fishers. (Submitted photo)
By Pete Smith • email@example.com Conner Prairie plans to have events for the whole family during its Easter Celebration on April 19. easter Kids will have the chance to collect candy and Easter eggs, compete in egg-and-spoon races and egg rolling, and other historical games. And older kids can watch the ubiquitous and nearly indestructible Peeps marshmallows as they fizz, freeze and inflate during a science demonstration. “Easter in Prairietown is fascinating,” said Jason Adams, Conner Prairie’s manager of science interpretation. “We’re making some fun crafts out there.” And of course the Easter Bunny will be there, too. But make sure to get to Conner Prairie early so kids can enjoy breakfast while they pose for pictures with the furry rodent. Breakfast settings are available at 8:30 and 11:30 a.m., but reservations are required. The Science of Peeps events start at 11 a.m. at the welcome center, and new presentations begin on the hour through 4 p.m. For the finale of each presentation, kids will see how the Peep responds to a high impact crash by shooting them out of a potato cannon. It’s all part of an increased focus on science at Conner Prairie, Adams said, noting that Conner Prairie was an experimental farm itself until the 1970s.
And his mind, the science experiments fall into that tradition. And when else would kids get to expose the indestructible common American Peep to radiation or extreme acidic conditions? “The candy activities will be really fun, too,” Adams conceded. The Egg-Stravaganza events take place at the Overlook Lawn starting at 2 p.m. The most important of which – for candy fans – is the egg drop, which is broken down by age group. And don’t forget to watch artist Laura Clack as she decorates eggs with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resistant (batik) method from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. And it wouldn’t be Conner Prairie without a fun way to learn about history. So in 1836 Prairietown kids can discover how the Zimmerman family dyes Easter eggs. The citizens of the town are preparing for spring and there’s a lot of planting to be done, flower arranging at the Campbell House, and “tussie-mussies” to make at the Gregory’s. People can also taste delicious maple gingerbread at the Campbell House starting at 1:30 p.m. until quantities run out. Easter Celebration • Conner Prairie • 13400 Allisonville Rd. in Fishers • 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 19 • Cost is $15 for adults, $10 for kids age 2 to 12 and free for children under 2 • For more information call 776-6006 or visit www.connerprairie.org

Open up most of your brokerage, IRA or 401(k) plan statements and you’ll most likely find a plethora of investment options Finance that you are currently invested in or have the option to allocate your funds. The typical diversified investment statement will have a general mix of domestic and international investments across both broad-equity (stock) and fixed-income (bond) asset classes. The goal of most of these portfolios is to accomplish what every client wants in their portfolio - to gain the most amount of return with the least amount of risk possible. What sometimes gets overlooked, though, is the next layer of allocation among those funds. Most of the time we observe a large portion of portfolios exposed to, “large cap growth” funds and a significant underweighting or complete lack of small cap funds. By definition, large cap refers to companies that have a market capitalization of greater than $10 billion and “small cap” stocks generally have a total market capitalization of between $300 million and $2 billion. However, re-evaluating a portfolio and looking at an investor’s exposure to “small cap” investments or funds is worth the time and effort if we compare the historical past performance of these investments. For this conversation, we’ll use the S&P 500 to evaluate “large cap” and the
Russell 2000 index to evaluate “small cap.” For the context of this article, let’s look back over the past 15 years (1998 – 2013) and keep in mind this includes two recessions. The S&P 500 had an average return of 7.41 percent, compared to the Russell 2000 having a return of 9.07 percent. That may not sound like much, you say – 1.66 percent across 10 years. But if we put that into dollar terms, a $100,000 invested into either portfolio at the beginning of the time period and, assuming all dividends are reinvested, would be worth very different values: $255,285 for the S&P 500 compared to $327,632 for the Russell 2000. So how much should you allocate to small caps? This is impossible to answer as there are no one-size-fits-all answers in investing. This is also not to suggest that investors should rush to reallocate their entire portfolio to small cap stocks — this would be very ill-advised and there is a slightly higher degree of risk that comes along with investing in small cap stocks that must be considered. The point to take away here is to make sure that you are taking the right amount of calculated risk for your portfolio given your goals.

Bledsoe, Carey shed the most weight email@example.com Riverview Hospital, through its corporate wellness program, Riverview HealthyWorks, recently completed the second “HamWellness ilton County Waist Reduction” weight loss challenge. Beginning on Jan. 6, employees from the City of Noblesville, City of Westfield, Hamilton County, Noblesville School Corp. and Riverview Hospital competed in the spirit of health and wellness. This eight-week program was developed to build a sense of community and to provide an incentive for the new year to make lifestyle changes through healthy eating, exercise and weight loss. Participants were challenged to lose weight, with the top prize – a Kindle Fire, provided by Riverview HealthyWorks – awarded to a male and female participant with the highest percentage of weight loss at the end of the program. This year’s male winner was Andrew Carey, an employee of Hamilton County. Carey achieved a 9.8 percent weight reduction.
“Hamilton County Waist Reduction gave me the motivation I needed to lose weight and get healthy,” he stated. “Since the program included several organizations within Hamilton County, I was able to complete the challenge with my wife who is an employee of Riverview Hospital.” The female winner was Lisa Bledsoe, MD, a physician at Riverview Hospital. Bledsoe achieved a 14.7 percent weight reduction. “After joining the program, I decided to make some healthy lifestyle modifications. This involved eating more fruits and vegetables and incorporating moderate exercise in my daily routine,” she stated. “My goal is to make this a more permanent change. I’ve lost the same 20 pounds over and over again. I want this to be the last time.” Program offerings included two weekly 50-minute exercise classes at Riverview Rehabilitation & Fitness in Noblesville. Exercise formats included Pilates, boot camp, yoga, kickboxing, aerobics, Zumba and PiYo. Riverview also offered two 30-minute wellness presentations Topics included “How to lose one pound per week” and “Making self-care a priority.”

A list of grammar peeves

Question: “Hi Jordan, I have a few pet peeves about frequent grammar errors I see and would love for you to clear them grammar guy up for either me or the rest of the world. Here they are. 1. An apostrophe “s” after a last name. Example:“The Smith’s are here. I don’t know what the Smiths own that are here, but the suspense is killing me. 2. A cents symbol after a price that has already been given the decimal point to symbolize cents. Example: .69c (instead of $.69). I don’t know how you divide a penny into 69/100ths but I’d be willing to round up to a full penny when purchasing that pack of gum. 3. When people talk about going “further” on their drive than me. I believe they went “farther.” Furthermore, I believe they used the wrong word. Thanks for making grammar so fun! I love reading your articles! (Marcy Vigren) Answer: Thanks for writing in, and for your kind words, Marcy. Normally I wouldn’t do three questions in one column, but all of these annoy me, too, so I think we can knock them out quickly. • Apostrophes do not make words plural (except when they do). I’ve written a previous column about this, but a refresher
is always useful. An apostrophe-“s” after a noun makes it possessive, not plural, in almost all circumstances. A notable exception is making lowercase letters plural (i.e. “Mind your p’s and q’s”). • Cents get a dollar sign and a decimal OR a cents sign. You could write $0.75, or 75¢, or even, I suppose, 75 cents, and all would be equally correct. But .75¢ would suggest you are talking about fractions of a cent, which is probably best left to bankers and gas station price boards. On the whole, I’d recommend sticking with the dollar sign, since most keyboards don’t even have a ¢-sign anymore. • Further and farther are complicated. I’ve dedicated a previous column to this, but the simple answer is that “farther” indicates physical distance and “further” indicates an addition or improvement. The complicated answer is that they’ve historically been used more or less interchangeably and the distinction between them is a fairly modern one. I’d refer you to my previous column for a more elaborative discussion. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing.

LEARN TO LOVE YOUR HOME AGAIN. Cemetery on Mount of Olives. (Photo by Don Knebel)
Awaiting the Messiah
Commentary by Don Knebel
Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives has been important to Christians since the first century. Jesus met with his disciples among its olive travel trees, prayed with them near its base at Gethsemane and ascended to heaven from its peak near Bethany, sites all now marked by churches. For even longer, the Mount of Olives has been important to many Jews, who still seek to be buried along its slope. The Mount of Olives lies across the Kidron Valley from the eastern wall of the Temple Mount. According to Jewish tradition, the Messiah will signal his arrival by coming down the Mount of Olives, crossing the Kidron Valley and entering the Temple through the eastern wall’s Golden Gate. When Jesus followed this path riding a donkey, he was welcomed as the Messiah by followers waving palm branches. Rabbi Irving Greenberg famously said in 1967 that the difference between Jews and Christians will finally be settled when the Messiah descends the Mount of Olives and announces whether it’s his first or second trip. To the left of the path that modern visitors take down to Mount of Olives is an ancient cem-
etery, containing about 70,000 tombs from the time of King Solomon’s Temple to the present. For thousands of years, Jews desiring a ringside seat for the Messiah’s arrival have been interred along the Mount of Olives’ western slope. They believe, like other Jews and Christians, that the Messiah’s appearance (first or second) will initiate the bodily resurrection of the dead. Consequently, they are buried with their feet to the east to be able to greet the Messiah face to face as they arise from their tombs. In the meantime, people pay their respects by placing small rocks on the stone tomb covers, reflecting their belief that the entombed souls are eternal. A single grave site on the Mount of Olives reportedly costs up to $85,000. For those who can’t afford to await the Messiah from there, there may be no reason to worry. An ancient legend says believers from around the world will be able to tunnel to the Mount of Olives when the Messiah arrives. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Now is the time to start your tomato seeds indoors. For a gardener, this is probably the most exciting time of the year. Gardening You get a fresh beginning to what is going to be a great season. Well at least we hope so. Most tomato varieties can be grown in our area so choose varieties that works best for your family. Beefsteak, Cherry, Sauce, Canning, etc. … once you have the seeds you’re ready to plant. Use a soilless mix to start your seedlings. The seed itself provides enough nutrients for the seedling during this period. Any extra nutrients will make the tomatoes grow too fast and get lengthy. After six weeks of growth, your tomato transplants will be ready for the outdoors. At this stage, your plants need a slow release, organic fertilizer (5-5-5). This will promote healthy foliage growth to help protect your fruit. Select a location with good drainage and full sun. Always make sure to weather any plants that have been growing indoors. Do this by slowly introducing them to the outdoor elements over a weeks’ time. Now that your tomatoes are outdoors, make sure your soil stays moist but allow for it to almost dry out before watering again. Over watering can introduce diseases and wilt. Under watering can put unwanted stress and crack your tomatoes. When fruit begins to set you’ll need to

add a side dressing of fertilizer (2-3-1) and then again at two weeks after first picking, and lastly at six weeks after first picking. Switching to a lower nitrogen fertilizer will help tomato growth and not foliage. This fertilizer is very important to promote large, healthy tomatoes! My favorite heirloom tomatoes are Cherokee Purple, Brandywine, Golden Jubilee, Marglobe Supreme, Roma, Black Krim and Mortgage Lifter. Noah Herron is owner of Urban Farmer Garden Center, 4105 W.

Dad’s advice: Whole-house remodel for ranch-style home
Commentary by Larry Greene
before & after
EXISTING HOME: This home in the 96th Street and College Avenue area was built in 1998 but had been unoccupied blueprint for for a few years. The improvement owner was able to purchase the home from a family member. “The whole house was severely outdated and I was skeptical about buying it. To ease my concerns, my dad recommended a complete house remodel. I trusted his judgment and decided to move ahead with the purchase.” DESIGN PHASE: Every single room in the dated one-story ranch needed a facelift. “I knew I wanted dark cabinetry and bamboo wood flooring throughout the house. While working through the design phase, the rest of the details fell into place.” KITCHEN DETAILS: The original kitchen was completely gutted and replaced with dark maple cabinets, granite countertops, a tiled backsplash and coordinating stainless steel appliances. To brighten up the kitchen and illuminate the dark cabinetry, new recessed light fixtures were strategically installed around the perimeter of the cabinets. Long plank bamboo flooring with a “baked natural” finish was installed not only in the kitchen, but throughout the entire house. GUEST BATH: Everything but the mirror was replaced in the guest bathroom. A dark maple vanity was installed with a coordinating “Autumn
Brown” granite countertop. The original tub and ceramic tile surround was replaced with a deep soaking tub and shower wall surround. MASTER BATH: The original master bath had old carpet, outdated fixtures and peeling wallpaper. Everything was gutted and prepped for a complete remodel. The same dark maple cabinetry and granite countertops were kept
RESULT: After all the planning and construction, the dated house was transformed into this first-time homeowner’s dream home. “The kitchen is by far my favorite room in the entire house. I like the way the colors all turned out with the dark cabinets and light-colored countertops and backsplash.”
consistent with the guest bathroom vanity. Replicating the look of natural travertine, porcelain tile called “Giotto Gris” was used for the floor and shower walls. The shower was finished with a new brushed nickel shower head and a semiframeless glass shower enclosure.
