It is our position that local youth sports offer great programs for kids to participate in healthy activities and provide an excellent opportunities for parents to get involved in coaching their kids. These groups are always in need of volunteers; so if time is available, please consider getting involved. If not, we must remember to be supportive of those who do. Most juvenile athletic associations do background checks on parents aspiring to coach before they are permitted to interact with the children. Good. Yet even as these safeguards are in place and the parent volunteers are well intentioned, it’s important we NOT allow (or require) our coaches to become babysitters (aside from the apparent danger of leaving one›s progeny in the care of a stranger). At a minimum, parents with children under the age of 13 should stay present for the entirety of all practices and games unless another parent has been prearranged for the caretaking of one›s child or children.  Burdened with any number of already assumed responsibilities, it is entirely inappropriate that our coaches should be challenged by what to do if one›s child encounters a complication requiring discipline, health care or worse. Youth sport does not eliminate parental responsibility.

Transparent mess

It is our position that local government units must conduct their business with a transparency that will allow us, its constituents, to be fully informed as to ALL matters in which our government is involved. There is no need or justification for secret activities at the local level. Openness allows we voters to bring an informed decision to the polls, where the choice to continue with the current leadership or change direction must be made.   Too often, the administration of local government entities, either out of intention or oversight, engages in obfuscation. The secrecy and resistance to transparency leads to a sense of general mistrust. Visibility, which brings the functions of the community into the public domain so that they may be known to we citizens, is an absolute. Certainly, local government is not alone in this foible. Anyone hoping to understand the tax code will at best find it unclear. Even as governments implement byzantine structures seeking optimal outcomes, citizens presume flaws hidden behind the elaborate maze of the edifice. This mistrust often leads to the creation of more unnecessary complications, as other elected officials attempt to ameliorate the suspected bad action of their fellow leaders.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Town council reps pressure for smart COIT use Town Council President Scott Faultless and council members Eileen Pritchard and Stuart Easley are onto something. They are spearheading a mass plea to the Legislature to review and change how County Option Income Taxes (1 percent) are distributed. Smartly, they have asked the General Assembly to deploy common sense, transparency and fairness. As taxpaying citizens of Hamilton County, we applaud their move, and their recruitment of legislators from our county, but we don’t hold much hope of the system being changed any time soon. Getting quick consensus from the Legislature is about as likely as a jumbo jet landing on a dime. ••• We happily commend President Barack Obama for having the guts to issue the order to take out Osama bin Laden last week. The precision with which the Navy SEALs carried out the mission – even after the mechanical failure of one of the Blackhawk helicopters – was the result of diligent training a lot of cooperation from various sectors. With what we assume to be intelligence data from bin Laden’s compound in hand, we’re hopeful that additional terrorist strikes on our homeland and interests at the very least will be diminished. •••

Change? You bet. Keep swelling the government on our backs (and wallets). That’s change. Allow us to repeat: There is nothing more pathetic than an American voter. We get exactly what we deserve.

Death of bin Laden may signal birth of new era COMMENTARY By Jordan Fischer In my six years of reporting, I’ve interviewed a number of servicemen and women, and their loved ones, both in joy at their return and in sorrow at their sacrifice. I didn’t know exactly how to start this week’s column, except to tip my hat to them. For 10 years Osama bin Laden has been the face of fear and violence, and America’s top military priority, period. Now that this part of the mission has been completed, they deserve at least a breath of relief and triumph before continuing their work. It occurred to me as I was watching President Obama deliver the news that bin Laden was dead, that my younger sister, now 17, may not even remember a time before the specter of al Qaeda appeared over our skies. That’s strange to think about, considering how forcefully bin Laden as a figurehead thrust terrorism, and the Middle East it seems so inextricably linked with, into American and international headlines. Between the end of the Gulf War (and I have only the vaguest recollections of this) and the terrorist attack of 9/11, what I remember of Middle East coverage stayed almost strictly within the conflict between U.S. ally Israel and Palestine.

Open House & B-B-Q!

Current in Fishers

In the wake of bin Laden’s death, there have already been calls to “bring our boys home.” And that should always be the goal. What we can’t overlook, however, is how transformative U.S. and international presence in the Middle East has been. Nothing points to this more than the recent wave of pro-democracy movements in the so-called “Arab Spring.” People of Egypt, Yemen, Syria, and across the region have found the courage to stand up to decades-old regimes of corruption and oppression. One can only assume that what has made this point in history different is that now, finally, the world is paying attention to what happens to them. What the U.S. presence in the Middle East will be in 10 years is hard to predict. That our presence still exists, however, is what matters. Without the eyes of the world on areas where tyranny and terrorism have previously thrived, it will be all to easy for them to slip back into the shadows that birthed a bin Laden.

Facing relationship conflicts head on COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson My husband and I rarely fight. I’m a pacifist by nature (the proud daughter of a 1960s Peace Corps volunteer!) and usually avoid all forms of confrontation. But last week we had a doozy, and it reminded me that sometimes a good oldfashioned argument is the only way to hash it out so that you can reconnect with your spouse. Doo had been away on business for a couple of days. He’d returned just late enough on Wednesday that I couldn’t really catch up with him before bed, and then I didn’t see him again until after work on Thursday. Once kids were home from soccer, we finally had a chance to sit down on the couch and say hello. And by “say hello” I mean pretend we were teenagers and make-out. Nothing R-rated, of course, as all of our kids were in various other rooms of the house. In fact, after maybe two minutes, our 12year old effectively ended our party with “Moom! I’m standing right here! And you told me you would help me with math.” Boo! A nonverbal agreement to recommence said interrupted activities transpired between Doo and I as I got up to fulfill my homework duties. I spent about 10 minutes going over combinations and other confusing probability problems with my son, then nodded to Doo that we were about finished. But just as I stood, our firstgrader appeared and asked for help with read-

ing. She had only 20 minutes until her bedtime, so naturally, I sat right back down and started in with “Lizzie’s Stage Fright.” Doo appeared unhappy by this decision, but I ignored him. It was only going to take five minutes to work through the story and questions.

I went in search of Doo, ready to finally have some time alone, and found him in the laundry room putting on sneakers. “I’m going to Lowe’s” he sulked. “I’m not in the mood anymore.” When we were done (like a turkey), I went in search of Doo, ready to finally have some time alone, and found him in the laundry room putting on sneakers. “I’m going to Lowe’s” he sulked. “I’m not in the mood anymore.” Now, under normal circumstances, I would have fired back a “fine” and stomped off to our room to silently cuss him out and let him handle the bedtime routine by himself as punishment. Then I’d ignore Doo for about 18 hours and finally send him an apologetic email, accepting blame for the entire “incident,” even though I’d know it wasn’t entirely my fault. Anything to ensure harmony. But something

about his attitude this time just honked me off. And I told him so, in no uncertain terms. “You’re just mad because you feel like I chose the kids over you, and you’re overreacting because you didn’t get your way.” “Do you not know me at all?” he retaliated as he headed upstairs to get his fleece jacket. “I’m not going to have this fight with you again!” I followed him, determined not to let him steamroll me into guilt. We never yelled or screamed at each other, and no objects were thrown, but we had a seriously heated “discussion” over wants and needs and our nonexistent telepathic powers, and finally, the importance of accepting responsibility for each of our parts in contributing to tiffs that stem from miscommunication. Afterwards, I felt validated, and my husband felt loved. And the best part? Doo kind of digs it when I get all mad and sassy. So we were able to have our alone time after all! Turns out, conflict isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially when it’s handled in a healthy and respectful manner. You can clear the air and then enjoy making up. Peace out.

Fishers Marketplace changes get public hearing at council meeting ments, expressed concern that the requested changes would remove incentives for those sorts of tenants, leading to a further influx of family tenants who would bring more school-age children to an already crowded Hamilton Southeastern School District. Beth Liller, a resident of the nearby Auburn Springs neighborhood, said she understood the need for development on the site, which has sat largely untouched since the economic recession of 2008, but was concerned at what might eventually be built there. Town Councilman Art Levine voices his opposition. “If this project is approved, we Photo by Jordan Fischer just want some kind of guarantee possible development partner, and the overwhelm- that what goes in at least won’t be as much of ing response was that there was no interest whatso- an eyesore as the vacant land is now,” Liller said. ever in multi-family residential with a requirement “We want something family-oriented.

project, saying the primary determinant of how many children come from an apartment complex is number of bedrooms per unit, particularly three-bedroom units. Levine, however, disagreed with his fellow council members, saying that removing the requirement for commercial space would attract a “different renter.” “The decision we’ve made over and over again is, something is better than nothing,” he said. “We have a few valuable pieces of land left in the community, and I have to ask here if something really is better than nothing.” The Fishers Marketplace PUD amendments will return to the town council for a third and final reading at the Monday, May 16, meeting, held in the town hall assembly room.

By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers Proposed amendments to the Fishers Marketplace PUD dominated the bulk of the Fishers Town Council’s May 4 meeting, with representatives from land-owner Old National Bank and nearby residents voicing their concerns about the project. Also on the council’s docket were $30,000 grant to Connor Prairie and a roster of 2011 Neighborhood Matching Grants, totaling $35,000. Both items were approved. Steve Hardin, attorney representing Old National Bank (ONB), brought before the council a request to amend the PUD ordinance for a 17.5 acre plot known as the “Real Estate” in the Fishers Marketplace, located at the northeast corner of 131st St. and SR 37. The petitioner requested to have a requirement for first floor commercial space removed from the ordinance, which would allow developers to build multi-family residential units without retail space below them. Multi-family residential development is already allowed by the current ordinance. “Old National went out and talked to every

Hamilton County goes to the polls By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers The May 3 primary marked the de facto election for many races in predominately Republican Hamilton County. Of the 165,000 registered voters in the county, 24,173 came out to vote Tuesday – representing a 14.62% voter turnout for what are typically low-turnout municipal elections. For poll workers, however, the chance to give back to their communities and country was worth the long hours. “It’s a long day, but you see a lot of people, and I enjoy it,” said Rhonda Harper, a Fishers resident since 1971. Harper was working at the Delaware #20 precinct in the Fishers Train Station. Harper was joined by a team of other workers, included Joe Hillier, who has been working the polls for 18 years. Hillier was the Democrat judge for the precinct. “I enjoy the camaraderie,” he said, “and the opportunity to meet people I’ve known, or maybe haven’t met before.” At the Carmel Meadows precinct, located at the Carmel Clay Public Library, a group of workers manned the polls with a smile and carton of cookies, joking that many of them had been there since “voting was invented.” “I feel like I’m paying back for what other people did for me,” said Clella Lewis. Eloise Bowers, sitting right next to her, agreed. “It’s a privilege, and we have a lot of fun,” Bowers said.

Town of Fishers Primary Election recap By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers With all seven town council seats up for grabs, and the first ever town judgeship on the ballot, the May 3 primary was an election to watch. Here are the highlights: In Town Council District 1, a new district encompassing much of the Geist Annexation, Pete Peterson won the election with 1806 votes over council-backed Jason Meyer, who received 1794 votes. Peterson was an outspoken opponent of the Geist Annexation, and has said he doesn’t support the plan of reorganization adopted by the town council in December. Renee Cox, running against longtime town council member Eileen Pritchard in District 3, took home victory with a buzzer-beating 25 votes

After the polls closed at 6 p.m., candidates and officials converged upon the Hamilton County Government and Judicial Center in Noblesville to watch precinct results roll in.

as the final precinct’s results came in. Cox, who was backed by the firefighters union, attributed her victory to a “grassroots” door-to-door campaign. While Town Council President Scott Faultless claimed victory in District 7, his opponent, 21-year-old Parker Stancato, earned 42% of the vote. Stancato, currently a business student at Indiana University, ran heavily on a platform of greater government transparency. Dan Henke, currently a member of the town council, will be the first Fishers Town Judge, having earned 45.91% of the vote to beat his three opponents. The remaining contested council races went to incumbents Mike Colby and Stuart Easley. Also earning re-election was Fishers Town Clerk-Treasurer Gaye Cordell, who has held the position since 1981.

How the Hamilton County Metropolitan Child Exploitation Task Force stands between your kids and online predators By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers

What Can You Do To Minimize The Chances Of An On-line Exploiter Victimizing Your Child?


he face of child explotation may not have changed in the last two decades, but the advent of the Internet certainly has given predators a new level of access to their prey. That’s why the Hamilton County Metropolitan Child Exploitation Task Force was formed in 2007. The team is composed of detectives from the Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville police departments, as well as members of the Hamilton County Prosecutors Office.

• Communicate, and talk to your child about sexual victimization and potential on-line danger. • Spend time with your children on-line. Have them teach you about their favorite on-line destinations. • Keep the computer in a common room in the house, not in your child’s bedroom. • Utilize parental controls provided by your service provider and/or blocking software. • Always maintain access to your child’s on-line account and randomly check his/her e-mail. Be up front with your child about your access and reasons why.

The primary mission of the task force, according to FPD Cpt. Andy Dietz, is to identify, investigate, and prosecute those individuals who utilize computers, digital media and other electronic devices to prey on children for the purpose of sexual gratification or profit. Donning the mask

In order to find child predators and purveyors of child pornography, detectives pose as underage boys and girls in online chat rooms. At that point, according to FPD Sgt. Dave Kimm, they wait for the predators to come to them. “Oftentimes guys will go into a chat room like ‘Dads and Daughters,’ and in the course of the conversation they will divulge information on a link to where this sort of (pornographic) content is available,” Kimm said. Getting access to the larger, password protected sites, however, can be a more difficult process. “The guys that really hoard the mass amounts of child porn are hard to get to, just like drug kingpins,” Kimm said, “because the trust level has to be so high.”

Signs your child might be at risk online: • Your child spends large amounts of time online, especially at night. • Your child receives phone calls from men you don’t know, or is making calls, sometimes long distance, to numbers you don’t recognize. • Your child receives mail, gifts, or packages from someone you don’t know. • Your child turns the computer monitor off or quickly changes the screen on the monitor when you come into the room. • Your child becomes withdrawn from the family.

How aware are you of what your child is doing online? In March of 2010, the task force arrested Samuel Hasler, 50, an Anderson, attorney, on charges of two counts of distributing child pornography, and one count of possessing child pornography. Through the investigation, it was determined that viewing child pornography had grown to become his main pastime. “They determined that he was spending a minimum of six hours a day looking at or trading child pornography,” Kimm said. And, Kimm said, Hasler was not an unusual case for the task force. “We’ve had more clergymen than anyone,” Kimm said, “but we’ve had police officers, attorneys, truck drivers, ex-military men… really all walks of life.” Still, Kimm said, there is a typical profile for child predators. “I don’t think we’ve ever arrested someone who wasn’t a white male, usually 30 or older,” Kimm said. “In fact, usually over 50.” Closing the net

Some investigations with particularly guarded predators can take weeks, Kimm said. Others are willing to meet up with detectives posing as underage children after only 30 minutes of conversation. “Sometimes we’ve only been talking to the guy for 30 minutes beforehand, and the guy was local and agreed to come up immediately,” Kimm said. The task force arrested a man in just such an scenario on April 11, after Greenwood resident Satnam Singh Thind allegedly

agreed to meet a detective posing as a 14-year-old girl for sex in Fishers. In 2008, the task force arrested a Carmel man, Andrew McGrath, on 24 counts of sexual exploitation of children, or producing child pornography, after an investigation determined he had produced images of minor females engaged in sexually explicit conduct. McGrath received 370 years in federal prison. “When I was a kid,” Kimm said, “if you were a pedophile, you would drive around and find a kid you liked, talk them for a while, learn their habits, then eventually abduct them. Now, you can just sit in the safety of your own home and browse to your heart’s content.” “The Internet is a pedophile’s dream,” he added. Keeping your children safe

“The hardest thing in Hamilton County is getting people aware of these types of crimes,” Kimm said. Beyond that, both Kimm and Dietz stressed that parental awareness is key. “Just for parents to be aware of what their kids are doing is huge,” Kimm said. “Oftentimes we get cell phones with hundreds of naked pictures of the owner of that cell phone. And once you send that picture out, it’s like a bullet. You never know where it’s going to go.” The task force offers an outreach program to public schools, churches, and any group that can muster an audience of at least 15 people to raise awareness about child predators. “The thing people don’t realize is, once those children are victimized, they’re victimized for life,” Kimm said. “They can never get the image of that abuse out of their head.” Information about registered sex offenders in your area is available online at To report a suspected child sex crime, dial 911 to reach your local emergency operator, the Fishers Police Department anonymous tip line at 317-595-3305, or contact The Indiana Department of Child Services through its toll-free hotline at 1-800-800-5556.

CFI finds new identity as Youth Mentoring Initiative By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers Nearly 60 mentors, students and supporters of Community First Initiative came out Friday night to celebrate the organization’s third anniversary, and for the unveiling of its new name: Youth Mentoring Initiative. “We’ve been going through an identity crisis,” said Don Koonce, a member of the board of directors. “CFI didn’t really explain what we did. Now, we’re very excited to move forward with our new identity.” The newly-monikered Youth Mentoring Initiative is a non-profit organization which pairs adult mentors with school-aged children who may be “on the fringe,” according to president and founder Darren Heil. YMI currently operates in partnership with the Carmel and Noblesville Options Charter Schools, Noblesville High School and Fishers Junior High. Heil announced Friday the organization hopes to move into Fishers High School in fall of 2011, but is seeking more community support from individual and business donors to fund the program’s expansion. Dana Foster, a mentor for YMI, recalled his own experience in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. “I started out on the floor of my aunt’s foster

home, because my mom had to give me up,” Foster said. “There were plenty of opportunities to get in trouble out in the streets, but a mentor helped me get away from that.” Foster said that he went from the “floor of that foster home” to now holding an MBA. “The mentor program is truly important, and I’m standing here as a person who makes a positive contribution to society because of what mentors have done for me,” he said. Heil said he was extremely proud of the work YMI has been able to accomplish in its three years, and hopes to continue expanding programs throughout Hamilton County. “We’re saying to the schools, this is our responsibility too, and we’re going to help,” Heil said.

Jennifer Riddle named ‘Teacher of the Month’ By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers Extraordinary teachers are the ones who are able to push their students beyond what they previously thought capable of themselves – or, at least, that’s what students and peers say about Fishers Junior High teacher Jennifer Riddle. Riddle, who lives in Fishers with husband Robert, was selected as the first Marco’s Pizza Teacher of the Month, and honored with a pizza party for her class by Brandon Gorin, owner of the Marco’s Pizza at 8235 E. 116th St. “I really got a sense that they believed she was a great teacher,” Gorin said. “And the nominations were coming not only from students, but her peers, and that means a lot.” “There was no question as to her dedication and passion for her students,” Gorin added. And Riddle’s students offered praise for their teacher too, citing her approachability, skill at explaining difficult subjects, and humor. “She really pushed me to work hard in school and try my best,” said eighth-grader Abby Dunagin. “She’s always there.” Riddle, who graduated from Indiana State University with a degree in special education, has been a resource teacher at Fishers Junior High for five years. “I was super excited,” Riddle said about hearing the news of the award. “You come in and do what you love to do, and expect your reward to be seeing your students happy and passing their classes. To be recognized for that was just the icing on the cake.” To nominate a teacher for the Marco’s Pizza Teacher of the Month award, send an email explaining why they deserve it to or The deadline for submissions for the last award of the semester is May 19.

HSE students can now “Text-A-Tip” to keep school safe By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers The Hamilton Southeastern School District is looking to harness the power of social technology with the launch of the new Text-A-Tip program. Officially kicked off May 3, Text-A-Tip will allow HSE students to confidentially provide information to their schools about suspicious or dangerous behavior. “For our schools to be secure, students have to be active participants,” Michael Beresford, student services director, said in a news release. “They are the eyes and ears of the buildings and have to report situations. This system gives them a new opportunity to be a voice in keeping ev-

eryone in their schools safe.” Text-A-Tip allows a school administrator or school resource officer to respond by text message to the originating cell phone or email without ever knowing the identity of the student who left the tip. The student’s information is always an alias and a unique ID before being sent. “This program utilizes students’ primary mode of communication and reaches out to them in their comfort zone,” said Beresford. “In addition, the school can communicate with the tipster and still maintain confidentiality, which will be a huge help in dealing with student issues.” A two-year grant from Duke Energy Foundation will fund the Text-A-Tip program initially. “You can’t put a price tag on school safety,”

said Dr. Brian Smith, HSE schools superintendent. “However, funds are very tight in this economy, and we really appreciate Duke Energy stepping up and not only funding the start up of the program, but for being willing to sustain it for over two years. Partnering with Duke will help keep our schools safe.” To send in a tip, students can text 847847 (TIPTIP). The message should begin with the keyword assigned to each school – for example, a student at Fishers High School would begin the text with @FHS. More information about the Text-A-Tip program can be found on the HSE schools Web site at, or by calling the administration office at 317-594-4100.

Horizon students receive gift of music By Jordan Fischer Current in Fishers The students of Horizon Christian School will be enjoying a new piano soon, courtesy of Rita K. Webster and Carmel-based Piano Solutions. Horizon is located just south of Geist Reservoir. It was selected to receive a free Brodmann professional studio piano after being nominated by Webster, who has three grandchildren currently attending the school. “I’m just really excited that this has come about, and that they will be able to have a new piano,” Webster, 70, said. “I hope it will bring a lot of pleasure and maybe excite some kids to want to play the piano.” Webster, an occasional pianist, and more ardent vocalist, herself, said music has played a big part in her life, and she hopes it does for her seven grandchildren as well. In fact, she came across the contest for a piano giveaway while looking for a piano for her granddaughters. Co-owner of Piano Solutions Greg Durthaler said he was excited at the opportunity to give

» May gardening tips – 1. Divide latesummer or autumn-flowering perennials. If necessary, go after phlox and artemisia with a sharp poppies spade or even an ax. If delphiniums need to be divided, remove and replant the new little plants growing around the outside of the clump. Discard the hard old heart. 2. Scatter crushed eggshells in a thick ring around roses to deter slugs. 3. Sow annual poppies and baby’s breath in borders for midsummer bloom by scattering them between the other plants, covering with fine soil, and tamping down gently. » Pairing wines and vegetables – Tomatoes, which are acidic, will taste better with a relatively acidic red, like a Sangiovese. Pair dark, leafy greens like spinach or chard with light reds such as Gamay; greens make full-bodied reds too astringent. Match mushrooms, lentils, miso and other earthy ingredients with an earthy red like Pinot Noir. Tannins intensify heat, so for dishes with hot chiles, pour soft, fruity reds like Zinfandel. Protein-rich vegetarian dishes (with cheese, for instance) often stand up to tannic reds like Syrah.

away a piano to a place where a younger generation might experience it. “We thought, rather than a typical giveaway, let’s add some goodwill to it and give to a music organization in need,” Durthaler said. “That way we reach a whole program that could change the lives of many students, rather than just one person.” “It tends to be much a more impactful and lasting way of reaching families with music,” he added.

Durthaler said the idea for the giveaway came from stories about schools cutting back on music funding during the financial crunch. “Of course, schools have to provide funding for their educators first,” Durthaler said, “so sometimes equipment gets put on the backburner.” The Brodmann piano was officially donated to Horizon Christian School May 3 on behalf of Piano Solutions and Rita K. Webster.

Healthy Times



Are you making the most of your exercise?

“Lose weight faster!” “The best program for maximum weight loss!” “Rock hard abs in 30 days!” You see them on TV, hear them on the radio, and read them in magazines. Weight loss and fitness messages are everywhere. With so many different claims flying around, it’s hard to know what to believe. Messages like these often leave people scratching their heads asking, “Why don’t I get these results?” It’s a big question, and the answer is different for everyone. But consider some of the following common exercise mistakes:

Quantity vs. Quality

How often you perform a certain exercise isn’t as important as how well you do it. Form means everything when it comes to an effective workout, and poorly executed exercises will not work the targeted muscle group efficiently. When your form begins to slip, stop and take a break.

Doing the Same Old Thing

Your muscles have a memory. It has been proven that your muscles can become “accustomed” to ongoing, identical workouts, which can lead to plateaus in performance.

Changing the order of your exercises, or using new machines that target the same muscle groups in different ways can go a long way. Try to change your routine every three weeks.

Too Much Too Soon

It’s in our nature to want things now. But the reality is that the results of exercise take time. It’s why patience and determination are so important to personal fitness. Just ask St.Vincent orthopedic surgeon and consulting physician for the USA Olympic Gymnastics Team, Dr. James Bicos. “An effective workout needs to be tailored to your needs, and it typically takes 90 days or so to start seeing solid results,” said Dr. Bicos. “Trying to cram six months of workouts into three weeks can lead to injuries.“ According to Dr. Bicos, the bottom line is that most people won’t build rock hard abs in 30 days, and their weight-loss won’t happen overnight. Because proper fitness takes time.

Most people who go to the Olympics as part of the USA Gymnastics team spend years in training for the uneven parallel bars or the balance beam — but Dr. James Bicos traveled with USA gymnasts because of his years of training in sports medicine as the team physician. And today, he continues to serve USA gymnasts as the Orthopedic Physician for USA Gymnastics. But Dr. Bicos doesn’t just focus on gymnasts. He serves the specialized needs of athletes of all types and ages. As one of the area’s leading shoulder experts, Dr. Bicos has helped athletes throughout the state. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Bicos at St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast, contact his office directly at 317-415-5885.

“You need to have realistic goals,” said Dr. Bicos. “Rome was not built in a day. And neither was your body!” Get your exercise program started! Call 317-338-CARE for a free pedometer.

HPV Vaccines: Protecting Girls from Cervical Cancer

Prevention: Falls at Any Age

Outpatient Occupational Therapy

Every day in the U.S., 30 women discover they have cervical cancer. But while most are passed genetically, cervical cancers are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Which means they may be preventable. HPV is a sexually transmitted disease with more than 40 different strains. It affects males and females, but many who contract it don’t realize they’ve been infected. Others may develop genital warts or discover the virus following a pap smear. HPV Type 16 and 18 are known to cause cervical cancer. Fortunately, there are two FDA approved vaccines that can prevent HPV infection. These vaccines are effective for boys and girls between the ages of nine and 26, and are best administered before an individual becomes sexually active. There is concern among many parents that vaccinating their child against a sexually transmitted disease may encourage sexual activity. But there is no evidence to support this. On the other hand, there is no question that HPV is both common and deadly.

Start with yourself to resolve conflicts COMMENTARY By Doug Jeschke You need to take responsibility for your own faults before calling another person out for theirs. This is a foundational principle in successfully resolving conflicts. I know this. I routinely tell this to couples that mediate family disputes with me. So why is it so hard to do this in my own conflicts? Intellectually, this approach makes sense. If I humbly reach out to the person I’m in conflict with, with a genuine recognition of my own faults and shortcomings, I’m less likely to be pushed away. I know it helps to break the struggling relationship out of the attack-defense-avoid mode conflicts usually follow. I know the willingness to admit my own missteps shows a genuine desire to make changes. I realize humbling myself enough to admit my faults shows I care about the other person and our relationship. But, when the sparks fly in my own life, it’s hard to take my own advice. Last night, my wife made a small comment that instantly put me on the defense. In response to a financial concern, Mikki asked me if I was planning on making a phone call the next day, to find out when some needed funds would be coming. But my insecure self heard, “You’re not doing enough to fix this problem,” and I exploded with all the reasons why doing

so would be foolhardy. Mikki jumped on me about my rude response to her simple question. In the moment, I could only focus on my need to prove to her that her question, really a suggestion of how she would proceed, was an attack on me. How dare she question me about the laissez faire way I handle our finances! It was not hard for me to see my overreaction had more to do with my own insecurity than with what she had said. I probably should take the uncomfortable action she suggested. Still, it was really hard for me to suppress my desire to prove myself right at any cost. Despite my hesitation, I did it. I apologized. It was harder than it should have been. I had to overlook that fact that she should have known me well enough to raise the issue differently. I can work on changing her later – but first, I need to manage my own behavior. I love my wife, so I should be able to act lovingly, even when she doesn’t act exactly the way I’d prefer. Hard as it is, we all need to start fixing conflicts where we have control: with ourselves. Doug Jeschke is an attorney and mediator, providing divorce and other family mediation with Providence Mediation. Email questions or concerns to doug@

Don’t let your heart be hardened RELATIONSHIP By Rachel Noble Have you ever met a person who constantly complains or brings up past hurts? It’s like their wounds never had a chance to heal. I’m sure we are all guilty of that to some degree. When a person can’t seem to move on in life, sabotaging relationships and constantly spewing negative words, you have to wonder if the root of this behavior – holding onto past wounds – is so familiar that it’s actually comfortable. There are people out there who have suffered devastation such as losing a child, missing a limb, etc. We’ve all seen people like this who have overcome great odds or fought feelings of failure somehow exuding a positive attitude. They seem to go through life maximizing every moment and seeing the good in all people and situations. Do you think this came naturally to them, or was happiness a choice? Personally, I believe it was a choice. And I also believe letting go of the past and softening our hearts is a choice. Friends, hanging onto our hurts or constantly churning out thoughts of how we wish we could get someone back for the wrongs they’ve caused will only keep us, well, right where we are: stuck in the muck of unhappiness and never moving forward. I believe a softened heart can lead to better relationships, a more successful career and a joy beyond measure, no matter what life throws at us.

Years ago, I heard a song by the 80’s Christian rock band Petra called, “Don’t Let Your Heart be Hardened.” Here are some of the inspiring lyrics from the song: Don’t let your heart be hardened – don’t let your love grow cold May it always stay so childlike – may it never grow too old May it always feel compassion – may it beat as one with God’s May it never be contrary – may it never be at odds May it always be forgiving – may it never know conceit May it always be encouraged – may it never know defeat Let His love rain down upon you Breaking up your fallow ground Let it loosen all the binding Till only tenderness is found Dear readers, may you make the daily choice to combat each and every feelings of defeat, past hurts, bitterness and a hardened heart. And may your softened heart find peace and experience love beyond comprehension!

Did anyone say cellulite? COMMENTARY By Laura Marenco OK ladies, we are all victims of it at some time: cellulite. In fact, I have been fighting it since I was a teenager. Luckily, after so many years, and after trying things like topical creams, I came to find out we do not need to spend thousands of dollars treating what some of us would consider “woman’s No. 1 enemy!” Here is what has worked for me, and I am sure if you are patient and consistent you can get rid of cellulite too! First of all, cellulite is not only seen on obese people. Skinny people may have it too, and nine out of 10 women will get cellulite, which in itself is lumpy fat just below the skin. According to research, this is what can contribute to this problem: little exercise, processed junk food with simple sugars, not enough water consumption, cigarettes, and even stress and hormone imbalance.

Supplements containing amino acids are terrific when it comes to battling cellulite.

Welcome Summer Design Extravaganza Friday, May 13, 2011 – 1:00 to 5:00 Saturday, May 14, 2011 – 10:00 to 1:00 Friend the KT FB page May 1-15 for a chance to win dinner for 2!

Enjoy delectable treats prepared by the Clark Appliance private chef (Friday only), sample the dessert bar, enter to win a variety of door prizes and network with design and product specialists.

Well I refused to be another statistic. I started consuming water more regularly, to the point of almost a gallon a day, cleaned up my diet from simple sugars (pastries, candy, sodas), decreased my consumption of alcohol, exercised at least five times a week, incorporated weight training four times a week to develop lean muscle, and did cardio sessions at least five times a week. In addition to a good quality multivitamin and pure fish oil, I introduced whey protein into my diet, which contains amino acids. Supplements containing amino acids are terrific when it comes to battling cellulite. Amino acids can help to rebuild collagen in the skin, thereby supporting the recovery of cellulite. Caffeine is not the enemy it was once perceived to be when it comes to body fat. It has the properties to dissolve fat cells that are helpful in the reduction of cellulite. In fact, when it comes to dealing with cellulite, consuming moderate amounts of caffeine can prove to be helpful. In considering supplements that are helpful in dealing with, you will want to keep in mind there are products that combine different ingredients that can work synergistically. These combination products can be particularly effective, such as a thermogenic, which will have a combination of caffeine sources and other herbs. Always consult with your physician before you start taking a new supplement. And good luck! Laura Marenco is a certified personal trainer and nutritional advisor for PointBlank Nutrition.

DISPATCHES » Peptides improve makeup – Among the most promising wrinkle fighters, say some dermatologists, are peptides. These small proteins are key actors in collagen synthesis, and they enhance the performance of antioxidants. These can also boost the performance of your makeup, acting like molecular garbage collectors, absorbing the toxic byproducts of skin’s ordinary functions that otherwise accumulate and damage cells. Try Mary Kay Timewise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation ($20, and Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Concealer ($9, drugstores), both with a blend of peptides and antioxidants. -Good Housekeeping » A haircut for balding men – When the recession at your temples meets in the middle and starts its march to the back of your head, you have few options. Because it’s contrasted by your bald scalp, the hair on the sides actually looks thicker and draws attention to your baldness. Ask your barber to blend from the thin spots to the corners, so there’s a smooth transition from scalp to hair. » Freshen laundry with alcohol – You can keep your clothes smelling fresher with vodka — really! Simply spritz your duds with the stuff, then hang to dry in a well-ventilated area. (Do a spot-test first to be safe.) Vodka kills odorcausing bacteria, but doesn’t leave a scent when dry.

Accessorizing your home COMMENTARY By Sue Faulstich In this day and age, people spend time and effort accessorizing everything from phones to cars. The satisfaction of making something feel finished is part of our human nature. Even the ritual of getting oneself ready for the day involves finishing your look with some sort of accessory item.  Accessorizing your home is an important part of the interior design process. It is the finishing element that will make your home feel complete. Advice on how to accessorize your home is easy to obtain from magazines and Web sites. I would like to touch on a few subjects that are written or talked about less frequently. First impressions are lasting We all know this is true in just about any given situation. Every person reading this article can immediately think of a scenario in which a first impression left an indelible memory in his or her mind – good or bad. When inviting someone into your home for the first time, making that guest feel welcome is important to most homeowners. Taking the time to make the interior of your home inviting will convey a sense of warmth to everyone who enters. From the front door to the back patio, use your imagination to map out a showcase of who you are.  The devil is in the details This is a well-known idiom reminding us that whatever one does should be done thoroughly. I’ve also heard this quote when

referring to the “very small, but ultimately important components of a larger task.” This translation seems fitting when talking about accessorizing an interior. Not one interior design project has ever been completed without adding an accessory or two. No matter how beautiful your furniture is, it will always look better surrounded by the appropriate accessories. Scale and proportion Scale refers to how items in a room relate to the size of the room. Proportion refers to how items in a room relate to each other. There is a good chance that when someone expresses a dislike for an interior space, it has little to do with the style and a lot to do with the scale and proportion of the selected accessory items. I am not one who feels that every manufactured rule of interior design always has to be followed, but this is one area that does need to be properly addressed for a successful outcome. Be conscious of pieces used together and how they relate to each other. Just like any creative process, finishing your home’s interior with accessories requires some thought, planning and hopefully a lot of enjoyment. The satisfaction of completing this last, but not least, phase of interior design is like putting your signature on a finished work of art.   

Taking the time to make the interior of your home inviting will convey a sense of warmth to everyone who enters.

DISPATCHES » Are you paying too much? – Auto insurance rates are constantly changing. In fact, in certain states and for certain policies, rates have actually dropped significantly in the past 12 months. And, if your record has improved, you may even be eligible for additional reductions. You can be sure, however, that your insurance company isn’t going to call you up and let you know their rates have dropped. » Revolutionary stock? – NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), which was part of Phillips for more than 50 but had an IPO in mid-2010, has several key ingredients of a revolutionary stock. It has clear technological advantage with near-field communication, which it helped to invent, and now markets its NFC chipsets to many bigname companies. NFC could easily change how people use mobile devices. Additionally, NXP has increased revenue shares by more than 25 percent over the past year. » Don’t buy tools – Studies have shown that the average power tool is used for only about half an hour in its lifetime. Renting (or borrowing) that specialized tool when you

need it can save you money, and free up space in your home or garage. Many home improvement stores have great selections for rental. Some Home Depot locations allow you to rent a miter saw for four hours for $30, which is better than buying one for around $150. » Free seminar – Joel Harris of Amicus Financial will host a free financial seminar on May 20, 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Monon Community Center in Carmel. The topic will be on financial planning at various stages of life. For more information, e-mail » Stick with the IRA – The appeal of the Roth IRA has always been that contributions, rather than withdrawals, are taxed. But in many cases, staying put in a traditional IRA will lead to bigger savings – especially for people five to 10 years away from when they plan to withdraw their money. Here’s why: It can take years of tax-free growth to make up the taxes incurred during the conversion. There’s also less time to pay taxes on this conversion now. Savers who converted from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA last year were able to spread the income from that conversion over 2011 and 2012. But now, all of the income from a conversion made in 2011 (and after) is taxable at once.

Keep your marketing efforts in focus COMMENTARY By CJ McClanahan Last year, I was having breakfast with a colleague at a restaurant that is near my office. I bumped into a handful of current/past clients and a few great prospects. Afterwards, I realized that I had really enjoyed spending time with people who valued my time and expertise. Then, I went back to my office and looked at my calendar for the week. Unfortunately, I had too many appointments with individuals who were going to complain about their business, my fees and life in general. I asked myself the following types of questions – “Who would I rather spend time with? Who values my services the most? Who can I help get the best results? What type of client is the most profitable?” The answers to these questions helped me to see that over the past several years I had spent a portion of my efforts targeting the wrong market. I had lost sight of the type of customer that was the best fit for my services. The result was that my business hadn’t grown as quickly as I desired and my margins were being squeezed. If you’re like most small business owners you have on more than one occasion lost your way and spent too many resources trying to get the wrong person to buy from you. The reason you allowed this to happen is that you desperately want to be everything to everyone because you don’t want to miss out on any opportunities. The problem with this approach (selling to ev-

20 | May 10, 2011

eryone) is that you lose your focus on those customers that generate the most profit. Remember, you are in business not make a profit, not just to generate revenue. St Elmo’s could probably generate more revenue by reducing their prices and opening 10 stores throughout central Indiana, but what would that do to their profit? You need to ask yourself the same questions I did last year and a few others to determine the best target market for your products and services. Here you go - Who likes buying from you? Who do you enjoy doing business with? Who doesn’t question your prices every other order? Which customers generate the most profit? Which customers provide you with the best referrals? As soon as you have a crystal clear set of answers to these questions you then need to review your current marketing plan to see if you are targeting the right group of prospects. In addition, this exercise will probably reveal that you need to get rid of a handful of your current clients. There you go – a simple exercise for helping you refocus your marketing efforts. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is choose to execute. Choose wisely.

Courtney’s Kitchen officially reopened in its new downtown Noblesville location last Friday. The restaurant, which serves food made with its owners’ family recipes, previously operated in the American Legion at 1094 Conner Street and has only been in business for a few month. Now, however, Courtney’s Kitchen is in its own, larger space in the building formerly occupied by Dom DiCarlo’s, at 654 Logan Street. “It’s just an exciting opportunity that we couldn’t pass by,” co-owner Carrie Courtney said. “When Dom DiCarlo’s opened up, we thought that would be our first choice - ever….It’s right on the square and has everything we’re looking for.” Courtney co-owns and operates the family-owned restaurant with her brother, Cass, who serves as its chef. The home-style restaurant continued serving its patrons for weeks as it prepared for its upcoming move. Now, the Courtney’s Kitchen signage is up, the move is official and the building at the intersection of Logan Street and 8th Street is seeing its first activity since mid-February.

Have your phone call mine HUMOR By Dick Wolfsie My wife’s cell phone keeps calling me. She’s not calling me – just the phone. Here’s how it works. Or doesn’t work. I’m at home minding my own business, when suddenly I hear the William Tell Overture. I check the number and it’s my wife, I assume contacting me from work to remind me to take three tilapia filets out of the freezer and defrost them.  But as I said, it’s not Mary Ellen. Apparently her cell phone has been jostled in her purse and somehow redialed the last caller, which was my number. So I pick up and I hear my wife talking – not to me, but on her office phone. I really don’t want to spy, but for 30 years of our relationship she has accused me of not listening to her. I’m always looking to improve my marriage. My biggest disappointment was my wife’s professionalism. When she talked with her colleagues it was always strictly business, which is why when she gets home at night she tells me what a busy day she had. The people I’ve worked with over the years know how to slack off. They know if a third of their day isn’t spent on office gossip, leafing through People magazine, or playing solitaire on their cell phone, they’re headed for an early ulcer. This rare opportunity to eavesdrop had not afforded me any real dope to use against my wife.

Instead, maybe I could win some brownie points with the help of the cell phone. I went to get a haircut and called Mary Ellen. Just before she picked up, I stuffed the phone in my pocket so the muffled sound would make it appear as though my phone had also accidentally called her at work. “You know, Buddy, as I sit here having my hair cut I’m reflecting on how lucky I am. I have the most incredible woman: beautiful, intelligent, sensitive. Without her, my life would be lonely and without purpose ...” It was the perfect ruse, but I hadn’t planned on my barber being such a wise guy. “Yes, you are a lucky man to have such a woman, Dick. I just hope your wife doesn’t find out.” I fumbled for the phone in my pocket, but it was too late. Mary Ellen had hung up. I panicked. I tried calling her back to explain but she didn’t answer. She knew Buddy was a jokester. She’s seen my haircuts. Later that night I tried to talk to her... “Not now, Dick. I want to watch ‘Desperate Housewives.’ We’ll talk another time.” “When?” “I don’t know. Why don’t you have your phone call my phone?”

Superman headed to Iran? HUMOR By Mike Redmond I see by the Internets, which never tell a lie, that Superman is going to renounce his American citizenship so that people in other countries no longer think he is an instrument of Official American Policy (Superhero Division). This has created something of an uproar in that segment of the population known as “People Without Perspective.” “He should be a strong role model for that depicts the values of AMERICA,” said one Web page philosopher. “If you lived here, would you renounce your citizenship and go live in IRAN??? Or do you live there now???” Whoa. Perspective, people. Perspective. As a comic book devotee of long standing, and a Superman fan from way back, let me try to help. First, we would do well to remember that Superman, son of Jor-El and Lara of the doomed planet Krypton, sent to Earth where he was raised on Earth by Jonathan and Martha Kent, given the name Clark Kent while developing powers and abilities far beyond those of ordinary men, is made up. Not real. Fiction, fantasy, folly. Superman is a DRAWING. There is no such thing as Superman in the reality-based world, which some of my fellow comics readers might remember if they ever ventured out of their parents’ basements, but enough about my brother. People are investing a whole lot of signifi-

22 | May 10, 2011

cance to a being who exists, as the warning label should say, For Entertainment Purposes Only. Let us remember that whatever Superman does happens in Comics World, where the laws that govern the universe are frequently suspended if not dispensed with altogether. Death, for example. All the big heroes have been killed at one time or another, but some sort of Cosmic Comics Voodoo always seems to bring them back to life. Nobody seems to stay dead in Comics World. Including Superman. In most of our lifetimes, Superman has stood for Truth, Justice and the American Way. It was not always so. It was simply “Truth and Justice” until the Superman television show was created during the Red Scare of the 1950s, when “the American Way” was added to the creed – I guess to assure people the only thing red about him was his cape. So what happens now? Will Superman declare himself a true citizen of the world? Will he use his new status to bring understanding to all people? Will he remain in Metropolis and if so, will he have to get a green card? You’ll have to buy the comics to find out. Which, to add a little more perspective, is always the point in the reality-based world. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ or P.O.

Knock-out rose comes with ‘wow’ factor GARDENING By Mark Skipper I remember my grandparents being so proud of their rose bushes – you know, the ones that had long, thick stems with the sharpest thorns known to man and needed constant attention because of diseases and pruning. It seemed like each year they had so much difficulty growing roses for all of the effort that went into these plants. But the times have changed, and so have the results! If you want to make a statement in your landscaping beds, you should consider the knock-out family of roses. Today the knock-out rose is the most widely sold rose in North America. The knock-out family of roses can either be a double-pedal or the traditional single-pedal rose. These beautiful roses have been highly requested at our garden center already this year. Supplies are plentiful, and so are the different color options! The knock-out rose is easy to grow and does not require special care. They are the most disease-resistant roses on the market. They have stunning flower power with a generous bloom cycle (about every 5-6 weeks) that will continue until the first hard frost. All of the knock-out roses are selfcleaning, so there is no need to deadhead. These roses are winter hardy and heat toler-


ant throughout the entire U.S. If unpruned, the knock-out family of roses can easily grow to be more than 3-4’ wide and 3-4’ high. Periodic trims will keep them maintained at a smaller size. A once-a-year cut (to about 12-18” above the ground) in early spring (after the last hard frost) is also recommended for maximum performance. The knock-out family of roses can fit into any landscape. Plant them individually among shrubs, annuals and perennials in mixed beds and borders. Plant them in large groups to create a colorful hedge. Plant them along a foundation to provide a bright border. The picture in this article is the bright bubblegum pink version of the DoubleKnock Out Rose that is very stable and also unfazed by the heat. Classic shaped flowers from early spring to the first frost. With superior drought tolerance once established, it has the toughness and resistance for which the family is known. A vibrant color that perks up any landscape and is so easy to care for.














Kinder, gentler bathroom design REMODELING By David Decker The serenity of a spa, the look and feel of natural materials, floods of outdoor light and a splash of fun colors all married to 21st century technology. No, that’s not Club Med; it’s a modern master bathroom. “Green” and “eco-friendly” are the definitive current trends in bathroom function and décor, and those words translate into “sanctuary” and diversity of style as never before in home bathroom design. We all know that large, airy showers are replacing tubs; that twin vanities and vessel sinks (bowls atop counters) are all the rage, ondemand hot water is a terrific energy saver, and tucking the toilet behind a wall – or even better, a door – is a long overdue and marvelous hat-tip to privacy. What’s truly new are stone and wood soaking tubs, which are lighter than cast-iron tubs, allow the water to retain heat longer, and are a serene alternative to noisy Jacuzzis. All-glass steam rooms are end-of-the-day stress-freeing havens. LED lighting design integrated with natural materials and artistic flourishes transforms a bathroom into a mood room, a mental getaway beyond basic home function. Larger windows and smarter storage further

modernize a bathroom with showers of sunlight and high-function organization. Rather than a cramped utilitarian cave, today’s bathroom is bathed in outdoor light that elicits the feel and freedom of openness and elbow room. Stunning fixture design – sinks, toilets, faucets, lights, mirrors, racks, shelving, heated floors and more – joining the latest high-function and energy smart technology builds a truly personal feel into this most private of home spaces. A spa-like master bathroom makeover presents many attractive options – so many, in fact, that the contributions and counsel of a professional bathroom designer will especially help make your home improvement as complete, compelling, inviting and personal as it is unique and peaceful.

Sly is a 4 year old male brindle and white Boxer.  Sly is a friendly boy who will gladly wag his nub of a tail when meeting someone new.  He is gentle when taking treats and enjoys going on a jog, but is happy to walk instead.  Sly is a big boy and very strong, so he would be best suited in a home with children old enough to handle his size and strength.  Like most Boxers, he can tend to be a little bossy at times so he will need a family who will remind him he is not in charge.  He doesn’t like to be left alone for long periods of time and has some food allergies, so a patient and understanding home is a must.

Binx is a 1 year old male orange and white tabby DSH.  Binx is a very social and outgoing boy who loves to be loved.  During his initial examination by the medical staff, all he did was purr making it clear he enjoyed attention.  Binx arrived at the shelter when his previous family lost their home and could no longer keep him.  He is grateful to be given the chance to find another loving family and he just hopes he wait will be over soon.  Binx is litter box trained and would do well in any home.

The Society of Indiana Pioneers

For applications/information, call 317-233-6588 The Society of Indiana Pioneers is seeking to identify early pioneers to recognize and honor for their efforts in building the State of Indiana. The Society of Indiana Pioneers was formed in 1916, when Indiana celebrated its 100th anniversary of statehood. In preparation for the 200th anniversary of Indiana statehood in 2016, the society seeks to honor special pioneers from each of Indiana’s 92 counties.

“To Honor the Memory and the Work of the Pioneers of Indiana”

“We want people from each county to nominate early pioneer founders that helped to carve a new life out of the wilderness and establish the settlements that grew into today’s Indiana cities, towns and farms,” said Co-Presidents Stanley Evans and Carolyn Rose. This process will enable contributors to nominate ancestors who helped establish the foundations of our state in the 1700s and early 1800s. The task of covering all 92 counties will be completed by 2016. Each year, 15 to 20 counties will be selected for honoring pioneers at each annual meeting. At the Society of Indiana Pioneers’ Centennial Celebration in 2016, all 92 county pioneers will be honored. Nominations are currently being sought for Hamilton County. Any interested party may submit nominations. Nomination forms are available at Pioneers selected will be honored at The Society of Indiana Pioneers November 5 , 2011 annual meeting. Nominations must be received by September 15, 2011. Phone inquiries are welcome at any of these numbers (317) 233-6588 or (317) 459-5460 or (765) 490-7202. Emails are welcome at Membership in The Society of Indiana Pioneers is open to anyone who has documentation proving descent from settlers who were living in Indiana by 1840. Associate memberships are available for anyone interested in Indiana history. Copies of the application form are available at the Indiana State Library or at www.indianapioneers. com.
