New amphitheater to be completed by September By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com

Construction on a new amphitheater behind Town Hall began at the end of May, and its completion is slated for Sept. 1. The project in the municipal district costs $822,500 of a $1-million budget. Myers Construction Management’s base bid was $774,000, but according to an action form from Tony Elliot, assistant to the town manager, the staff recommended consenting to an alternate plan that accelerates construction by one month. The Town of Fishers staff and town council received nine bids for the construction project – the most expensive being $1.08 million. Funding for the amphitheater came from Cumulative Capital Development fund, the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Impact Fee fund, according to a council action form. Scott Fadness, town manager, said the accelerated plan was accepted so the amphitheater could be ready to go for a full spring season of activities next year. The extra month allows for landscap-

ing and stabilizing the area after the sod and grass were torn up to redo drainage. Once completed, the new amphitheater will serve as a hub for a multitude of town functions and events, according to the action form. Fadness said the amphitheater is step one in a process to build a vibrant downtown. “At the end of the day we’re trying to provide a sense of place and identity,” Fadness said.

INDOT restricts I-69 lanes – Adding to the long list of road construction projects going on in Fishers, INDOT restricted traffic lanes on Interstate 69 overnight last Friday.

Traffic on northbound I-69 will be restricted to two lanes from Exit 5 to north of Ind. 37 until the fall.

Multiple cases of ‘suspicious activity’ involving minors reported in past month By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com

Fishers resident wins service award from Anderson Noon Rotary Club – Fishers resident Jill O’Malia was named the Elmo Funk Ideal of Service Award Winner for 20112012. The award from Anderson Noon Rotary Club is named in honor of the late Elmo Funk – a charter member of the 50-yearold club. O’Malia, a sales manager and marketing O'Malia director for WQME (98.7 FM) and Covenant Productions, is involved in several organizations, groups and projects, such as the Special Olympics, Anderson Symphony Orchestra, Mainstage Theatre, United Way of Madison County and the Anderson Center for the Arts – to name a few.

Three cases of “suspicious activity” involving juveniles were reported in Fishers during the past four weeks. According to press releases from the Fishers Police Dept., all three cases have different suspects. At the June 4 Fishers Town Council meeting, an FPD representative said no progress has been made with the cases. Officer Tom Weger said investigations are still ongoing and there is no evidence to indicate that the incidents are connected. On June 4, a black Toyota Camry approached a child at the intersection of Parkshore Drive and Brightwater Drive in the Plantana Subdivision. The juvenile’s mother told police that the driver yelled at the child, attempting to lure him toward the vehicle. The juvenile became scared and rode his bike back home. The suspect is described as a middle-aged, thinly built black male who was clean-shaven and wearing an orange T-shirt. On May 21, similar activity was reported at the 13000 block of United Drive – 136th Street and Brooks School Road. The suspect, who also drove a black Toyota Camry, approached an 8-year-old girl in her driveway and attempted to lure her to the car. Her

mother saw, brought her inside and dialed 911. The suspect is a 30- to 40-year-old white male. He was reported to have dirty-blond hair and light skin. Twelve days prior to the incident, suspicious activity was reported at The Olio Fields. An adult babysitter, who was watching a juvenile athlete, was approached by a 30- to 40-yearold white female. The female told the babysitter that the mother of the child contacted her and gave the babysitter permission to have the child go home with the suspicious person. The babysitter contacted the mother and confirmed that the woman was lying. The suspect is about 5 feet 5 inches tall and had a ponytail. “Summertime provides an opportunity for parents and children to relax and enjoy a well-deserved break from work and school,” George G. Kehl, chief of police, said in a press release. “However, it is imperative that residents do not relax their awareness of their surroundings.”

Fishers resident skates across Indiana for Charity – Fishers resident Steve Hill skateboarded across Indiana to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in Africa and programs run by Christian World Outreach that help people in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Part of the trip brought him through Fishers on Saturday. His endeavor was inspired by a trip he took to Haiti, where he saw the work the non-denominational, non profit ministry was doing, and by a documentary called “10 MPH,” in which a group of friends ride Segways across the United States.

Government

Fishers Town Council updates Action: The council approved a “Determination of Statement of Benefits 2012 Compliance” for four businesses.

What it means: At the June 4 meeting, the town council voted to name four businesses – Comcast of Willow Grove, Nexus Valve Inc., Hamilton Trace Property LLC and Clarke Engineering Services Inc. – fully compliant in promises made to the town in exchange for tax abatements. The staff and council found that the four businesses made good on pledges (or close enough to their original goals) to bring commerce, jobs and specific salaries to the town. Comcast of Willow Grove retains 377 jobs alone. Since approved, the companies can remain on the tax abatements. Action: The council did not approve the “Determination of Statement of Benefits 2012 Compliance” for one business. What it means: There were questions as to if one business, the Hagerman Group, met the expectations set when the company applied for the tax abatements. Because the council did not approve the business outright, a representative must attend the next meeting to explain more details to the council. It would be considered a public hearing. The consequences of not meeting expectations are to be determined. Action: A request to amend the River Place PUD was approved. What it means: The amendment rezoned 17.2 acres of R3 residential land to River Place PUD-M zoning, which is typically open to a variety of structures, including commercial buildings. The acreage will be considered part of the original vision of the River Place development, according to Scott Fadness, town manager. The amendment also sets standards for parking structures and signage. Fishers residents could see new development north of 96th Street and east of Allisonville Road. Action: Resolution R060412A was approved. What it means: The Town Council approved the transfer of capital from various funds to others – for a total transfer of roughly $80,000. When the town’s government decides to use funds set aside for contractual purposes and decides to use the money for a purchase, it is procedure to bring a resolution before the council. According to the council’s action form, the reasons for the funds transfers are three-fold: the purchase of iPads for the Town of Fishers staff, a budgeting error and information technology projects.

$70k in tourism development grants to support Hamilton County venues editorial@youarecurrent.com More than $70,000 in grants from the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau will support 14 nonprofit organizations and everything from a chili cook-off to a national vocal competition. In Westfield, the Parks and Recreation Dept. received $10,000. The grants, specifically earmarked for projects supporting tourism development and marketing, are part of an annual overall investment of almost $500,000 in tourism community development initiatives by the HCCVB in 2012. Other funds support the Nickel Plate Arts initiative and debt service on the Tourism Development Bond, an expansive community development initiative launched in 2011. “This is our first competitive grant program in two years,� said HCCVB Executive Director Brenda Myers. “We are delighted we can begin working again with our nonprofit organizations and festivals in helping raise their profile in the marketplace.� Awards by organization include: Actors The-

Plain talk

It could be worse

Commentary by Susan Bryant

I have a dog that routinely embarrasses me. Although I know golden retrievers have a reputation for being friendly, this description does not begin to convey my dog’s affection for every human. Upon meeting a girlfriend of mine, my unruly hound licked her face clean of all makeup in one split-second assault. She almost broke my uncle’s nose when he bent to pet her and she exploded with 80 pounds of force straight into his face to “kiss” him. I have spent the past seven years apologizing for my dog’s exuberance. Two attempts at obedience school have not made a dent in this problem. I’ve since learned that my canine suffers from “excessive greeting disorder.” (There is an actual support group for this.) I can make her sit. I can make her stay. I cannot curb her all-consuming need to smother the world with her brand of love. So, I look at it this way. There are worse problems than having the world’s friendliest dog. Aside from her overactive enthusiasm, she is also sweet, gentle and doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She is a giant furry pillow the kids can do anything to without complaint. She’s my shadow, silently following me room to room just to be near me. This dog approaches every man, woman and child

Get Beach-Confident & Bikini-Ready. Get Exilis.

with the expectation that they will be her next best friend. You have to admire that kind of optimism. Seeing her from this perspective helps temper her overbearing moments. It strikes me that successful parenting is also largely a matter of adjusting one’s perspective. Have a toddler that refuses to be potty-trained? Think “independent free thinker.” Awkward child who prefers his or her own company to the masses? Try “introspective nonconformist.” Kid who won’t stop talking and drives you crazy with incessant questions? “Inquisitive people-person.” Video game junkie with no ambition to leave the couch? Well … let me think about that one. One of my favorite quotes comes from my kids’ preschool days: “You get what you get and you don’t get upset.” I try to keep this philosophy in mind as I see another unwitting victim approach our yard to pet the big yellow dog with the goofy smile and the tail wagging 90 miles an hour. Yes, she’s “enthusiastic” – and I wouldn’t have her any other way.

There are worse problems than having the world’s friendliest dog.

Do you eat well, work out and still have a few trouble spots that don’t seem to respond? Are you getting back into shape after the birth of your baby? Has loose skin on your inner thighs or belly always bothered you? Exilis is an FDA-approved treatment that targets those trouble spots, reducing them and tightening the skin – without surgery, needles or downtime. We’re seeing great results everyday on people just like you. Give us a call – and be confident at the beach, in the pool and in front of the mirror again.

Red and white stripes run up and down the piano, and its bright blue top is adorned with a gargantuan white star. Goloversic’s piece is part of an art exhibit called “I am Piano. Play me.” He was one of six artists who painted pianos around Fishers as part of the project, which was facilitated by the Fishers Arts Council to bring approachable art to Fishers residents. Approachable art can mean pieces that a viewer can walk up to – in this case, anyone can walk up to the pianos and play Chopsticks, Rhapsody in Blue or anything else he or she wants. And when that happens, approachability takes on a whole new meaning. 

Striking a chord

This is the second year “I am Piano” goes on display. The exhibit came to fruition when a Fishers Arts Council member recommended the group look into being part of a similar project taking place in London. Doug Whisman, a Fishers Arts councilor, and his wife, Ji-Eun Lee, donated three pianos from their business, the Ji-Eun Lee Music Academy. Whisman After a discussion about costs to be part of the project, it was decided that all the council had to do was drop the pianos off and listen to the music.

Piano: Let Freedom Ring Location: Ambassador House and Heritage Gardens Artist: Liz Jenkins

Piano: The Face of a Hero Location: 116th Street and Lantern Road Artist: Lydia Burris

Four pianos were donated the first year and painted with a “four elements” theme. This year, the pianos trade fiery and cool blue paint schemes for the stars and stripes.

“Honoring our Military Heroes”

With the stars and stripes, the six pianos took a personal spin this year. The theme “Honoring our Military Heroes,” was suggested by Ben Blanco, one of the Fishers Arts councilors. Blanco’s brother currently serves in the U. S. military, so when the family donated a piano to the exhibit, Blanco wanted that one piano to be a tribute to his brother and what he’s doing for the country. Whisman said the idea was quickly adapted to be the entire theme. Six artists were given one theme. Six unique artworks now stand throughout Fishers. Goloversic’s “Captain America”-inspired piano is decked out as if the hero found a hobby besides hand-to-hand combat. Nekoda Witsken’s “Spirit & Pride” piano brightly depicts Native American heroes with the reminder that “We are all American.” Lydia Burris’ “The Face of a Hero” piano is a bright collage of men and women who put their lives on the line for the country, while Pam Fraizer’s piano recognizes heroines from multiple conflicts. Fraizer said, “Since so many women’s rights are currently in question, I thought it was important to feature women who had served in the armed forces.” The “Let Freedom Ring” piano is a patriotic homage from Liz Jenkins that is presented from a child’s perspective.

Piano: Captain America Location: Brooks School Road Park Artist: David Goloversic

Piano: Unsung Heroes Location: 131st Street and Saxony Blvd. Artist: Christi Ziebarth

“I love taking on projects that are different from what I usually do,” Jenkins said. “It’s fun to be challenged and have to think about your art in a different way.” Walk past Christi Ziebarth’s “Unsung Heroes” piano, and one question comes to mind – what does a black paint scheme with luminous swirls and neon dots have to do with military heroes? Ziebarth asked community members to submit appreciative words, honors or prayers for heroes who do not get recognized for their sacrifice. The appreciations would be painted on the piano. Not a single person stepped forward. “Instead of filling in the empty spaces myself, I decided to paint the design itself as much of a bold, patriotic and visual anthem as I could, so that the artwork itself ‘sang’ thanks to our military,” she said. While bringing approachable art to Fishers residents and honoring military heroes are primary goals, “I am Piano” serves another purpose.

Key change

Whisman said another goal of the project is to drive commerce to Fishers, and ultimately, alter the fabric of the community. At least one musician has considered which of the six pianos is in the best condition and could draw the best crowd, and two offers have already been made to purchase the pianos. The pianos’ fates are uncertain, according to Whisman, but what is certain is what it takes to make such a project happen – besides volunteerism and sponsorship. “I have a passion to see people view creativity as a life skill, not merely a categorized accessory of the art world,” Ziebarth said. “Being creative is an affinity toward beauty and a bent to embrace innovation and problem solving.”

Opinion

Super-size government It is our position that dictating what Americans eat and drink should not be within the realm of government. Apparently, the ongoing issues of education, unemployment, health care reform, homelessness and crime aren’t enough to keep lawmakers busy. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks super-size sugary sodas are putting the “big” in residents of The Big Apple and has introduced a resolution to ban them from being sold in certain restaurants and entertainment venues. Ironically, it was Bloomberg who campaigned to get an amendment passed in 2008 to super size his term in office. While the First Lady’s Healthy Food Initiative is positive in that it has reintroduced gardening as a hobby and as a low-cost source of healthy food, it has put the kibosh on super-size candy bars and served as the catalyst for federal regulations banning soda from being sold in schools during the lunch hour. A school in Utah was recently fined $15,000 for a violation. Unfortunately, schools have to use a lot of processed food because of regulations, budget and liability issues. If government can pave the way for old school lunch ladies to truly cook again, more power to them. Super-size government should super size the real priorities in this country, super quick.

Keystone/96th revision: Our region needs it

Misplaced loyalty

Commentary by Terry Anker

Why does it seem that most elected officials don’t retire naturally? They run until they are forced resentfully from office. Some voters accuse the politicians of an egomaniacal power-grab while others believe these mature statesmen have the most to offer and must continue to serve. Whatever the perspective, most of us count ourselves as loyal. We love our friends, our team mascot and our national flag. In fact, studies show that once we settle on a beer brand we almost never change it. Even dogs are lauded for their faithfulness. Could politicians continue to campaign out of some sense of misplaced loyalty to those in their employ? When a fresh-faced member of our U.S. Congress goes to D.C., they are first challenged with building a staff. In addition to hiring from the pool of professional bureaucrats lurking in the shadow of Capital Hill, they bring with them a handful of devoted kids from their district back home. Together they march to Washington, ready to make a

difference. Then life happens. In the subsequent years, these “kids” grow up living in the beltway. They meet and marry in Virginia (not their home states). Their children are born residents of the Imperial City, not the small town from which their roots sprang. By the time a U.S. Senator, for example, has served a few terms, her close-knit staff is no longer representative of the folks, well, represented. Considering reelection, are those most proximate to the senator entirely selfinterested? They say: you have more to do to serve our country. They mean: one more term and my kid will be out of school (“he is your Godson, senator”). They say: your state needs you. They imagine: what will I do without the job your office provides to me? Compared to personal interest, does the state always lose?

With all due respect to business owners in the Keystone Parkway/96th Street area, the recent news of the state’s decision to not pursue a roundabout now will have ramifications for our region. For drivers from Zionsville on the west to Fishers on the east, and multiple points in between, the intersection has proved nothing short of a traffic-management disaster. We know of several people that go out of their way to avoid that intersection and its miserable snarl of traffic. We do hear and understand the fears of merchants in that area; they justifiably worry about what yet another round of road construction would do to their businesses. In our opinion, a roundabout would pay dividends into the future for those that drive through or to that area and the businesses that would be reached with relative ease by comparison. The project still is on the books, but the two thoroughfares will be “war zones” once U.S. 31 shuts down for its hyperfix. It’s easy to write what should happen, because our business is not situated in that area of the marketplace. That stated, we’d consider it a noble and defining act if Gov. Mitch Daniels and his team found a way to step up and let everyone have his or her cake and eat it, too. It can happen. More than that, it needs to happen. We can’t have that intersection be a wrench in the motoring-andcommerce works any longer than it has to be. ••• Mark your calendars and buy tickets to this: The final performance of the Great American Songbook Vocal Academy and Competition is at 7 p.m. Friday at The Center for the Performing Arts.

Summer family blockbusters Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Summer is here, my friends, and for me, it means two things: multiple opportunities for buttered corn at the movies and freedom from the daily grind of homework, bus stops and brown bag lunches. But these perks come with a cost – namely weight gain and delinquent children. So taking my cue from Rotten Tomatoes, here are some certified “fresh picks” for surviving the longest of the long school vacations: Amish Day: Horror. At least for my kids. The idea of surviving even one afternoon without their beloved Xbox or Kindle or iPod is enough to throw them into hysterics. But my husband and I both agree that they will not waste the beautiful weather hunkered down in the basement sniping Nazi zombies. So one day per week shall henceforth be designated Amish Day. Bedtimes on Elm Street: Legal Thriller. John Grisham could learn a few things about courtroom drama from our offspring at bedtime. They argue, mediate, bribe and stall just like real lawyers. But setting and enforcing consistent bedtimes is a must if our children are to get the rest they need, so as justices, Doo and I bring the gavel down on their antics. We simply can’t handle the truth of too few Z’s. Fun After Reading: BBC Documentary. Important yet oh-so-boring, we are once again requiring our precious little angels to participate

Hire Us Before Your Spouse Does

in the library summer reading program. They’ll resist, right up until they discover there are actually good books out there. Revenge of the Chores, Part 2: Foreign. Our kids have household responsibilities throughout the school year, but for some reason they think June marks the beginning of some kind of chore sabbatical. So getting them to continue with laundry, dishes, lawn mowing and cat care is like watching a Spanish soap opera – over-thetop drama with unrelenting eye rolling and cleavage-clutching gasps. A chore chart will continue to dominate our Frigidaire, muchas gracias. The Family Wilson: Comedy/Drama. Last year we instituted a game night, but this year we’ve switched things up and are starting a weekly Wilson movie night. Each of us will get the chance to select a film that the whole family must watch. This could go one of two ways, hence the double genre label. Hopefully, we will have tons of fun critiquing each other’s picks, but as in all families, chances are high that someone’s feelings will get hurt. Let the games begin…. Peace out.

Olympics for the average Commentary by Mike Redmond

I read an article the other day about bringing back events that have disappeared from the Olympics – things like softball, dueling pistol target shooting, two-handed javelin and, my personal favorite, tug-of-war. I doubt the movement to return the tug-ofwar to Olympian heights is going to gain much traction. It has, however, given me an idea. We can’t all be the regular kind of Olympic athletes. Who has the time? All that work, the practice, the training … why, you’d have to miss an entire season of “The Bachelorette” and cut your pizza consumption by as much as a third. So I’m thinking, we already have an Olympics for the elite runners, jumpers, gymnasts, swimmers and such. Why not an Olympics for the rest of us, doing the sorts of things that are more within our skill sets? Tug-of-war is just the beginning. Think of the possibilities for events in the Regular People Olympics: Potato sack races. Egg toss. Red Rover. Dodge ball. Flashlight tag. Kickball. Beanbag toss. Yahtzee. Juggling. Slapjack. Beer pong. Of course, those are kiddie games, except maybe for the beer pong. That’s more of an arrested adolescent game. Perhaps we should include some modern adult competitions based on Real Life As We Know It in 2012: • Indoor two-handed electronic device manipulation (two divisions: TV remote and

smart phone). • Individual errands medley (grocery store, dry cleaners, pharmacy, post office, pick up kids from school). • Multi-tasking relay (the American working mom should be a gold-medal contender in this one). • Riding lawnmower slalom. • Individual, two-man and four-man barbeque. • Team drinking. • Cookie toss. (You could actually combine this one with team drinking for the Alcohol Biathlon.) • 20 kilometer dog walk. What do you think? No? I guess you’re right. It would never fly. The Olympics stand for something, and that something isn’t floating on your back in an inflatable pool. But while I admire Olympic athletes for what they do, I also believe this: Some days, most days, just getting up and living your life – your Real Life As You Know It In 2012 – is its own kind of tug-of-war, except you’re not pulling the rope. You’re pushing it. Life As You Know it is an Olympian challenge, you might say. And just getting through it wins the medal. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker.

Sigh of relief

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Have you ever been caught pandiculating in a public place? My wife gets annoyed when she catches me doing it anywhere. She thought once we were married, I’d quit. But we’ve been married a long time and I haven’t been able to stop. Pandiculation, as I’m sure you already knew, is the act of yawning. We don’t know how long people have been yawning, but we do know how long people yawn for: on average, about six seconds. Your yawn may vary. Whatever the cause, I’ve always found it embarrassing to be talking to someone and suddenly start yawning. That’s when some loser says, “I’m not boring you, am I?” Here’s my response: “Not at all. People yawn when the pressure in their ears differs from the outside pressure, or from the partial collapse of the air sacs in their lungs, prompting the brain to make them yawn, thus getting more oxygen into the lungs.” “Okay, Dick, now you’re boring me.” My dog and cat always yawn when they see me. Your pets do the same thing to you, don’t they? Please tell me they do. And when I get undressed with my dog in the room, first he takes a look, then he yawns. I try not to take it personally. My wife doesn’t yawn very much, which I thought was pretty good evidence of what a 14 | June 12, 2012

snappy conversationalist I am, but at times she does exhibit paralinguistic respiration – meaning she sighs audibly. Unlike most cinema reviewers who employ either the thumbs up or five-star criteria, Mary Ellen practices the sigh standard, exhibited most often when I drag her to a flick she really doesn’t want to see. For example: “Con Air” got six sighs while “The Avengers” earned eight sighs. And at the newly released “The Three Stooges,” she sighed so many times the man sitting next to us thought she was in cardiac arrest and called 911. Unlike a sigh, a yawn is involuntary. Mary Ellen and I were at a wedding and I desperately tried to suppress a yawn so as not to appear rude or uninterested in the ceremony. My face got all twisted and scrunched, but I did manage to successfully incorporate the words “I do” into my pandiculation. Even the minister was impressed. I hope you think this topic was worth writing about. Personally, I don’t think it’s anything to sternutate at. You can look that one up. But here’s a hint: Gesundheit!

The Great American Songbook Vocal Competition brings young performers and professional talent to Carmel By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com This Friday, The Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative will host The Great American Songbook Final High School Vocal Competition. This annual event showcases high school talent from the Midwest and now a large portion of the country while giving students a week of professional-quality education with several award-winning celebrity performers. “We originally saw (the competition) as our chance to expose youth to this great music,” said Chris Lewis, The Great American Songbook Initiative’s Director of Education, “but now, it goes Lewis beyond simply achieving our initial mission. Now there is a huge educational component as well.” The first competition was held in 2009 and included five states across the Midwest. Selected students took part in an initial competition within their state. From there, finalists were determined and performed in the final, which

included a monetary prize to the winner and runners-up. Last year, the competition went on a brief hiatus while waiting for the completion of the Palladium. Coming back from this break, Lewis took the opportunity to increase the scope of the competition as well as enhance the educational component. “Originally if 100 students entered, only about 10 would experience the academy,” said Lewis. This year, the competition has been expanded to four different regions, two of which include New York and California. Through expanded online registration, the competition received nearly 200 applicants from across the country. Finalists were then chosen in several regional competitions, each featuring one day of master classes and workshops. Now, 40 students get to experience the Academy, which was one of the Initiative’s primary goals. The finalists are attending the complete academy experience all this week in Indianapolis. A wide array of classes and workshops are being taught by industry veterans and celebrity professionals such as Michael Feinstein, Sandy Patti and Sylvia McNair. While the students’

personal experience levels may vary, the aim of the academy is to help them become as great a performer and a professional as possible. “We have seen 18 year olds that are already accepted to a program coming in really polished and then 14-year-old freshmen that are also really strong, so it’ll be interesting,” said Lewis. The final performance will feature several musical numbers including the competition’s finalists and group numbers featuring many of the celebrity judges such as Michael Feinstein and Sandi Patti. “It’s less American Idol and more … something that I can’t really describe,” said Lewis. “It’s going to be an incredible show.”

The Great American Songbook Vocal Competition will be held this Friday at 7 p.m. at Palladium (1 Center Green, Carmel). Tickets are $25 to $50 general, $10 student and included in admission to Saturday’s Encore Celebration. Tickets are available online at thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

Heart disease: know the basics Commentary by Chintan Amin, MD, IU Health Physicians Internal Medicine

Affecting both men and women, “heart disease” refers to conditions that affect the function of the heart, such as coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. Coronary artery disease is a type of heart disease that begins when plaque builds up along the walls of arteries. This buildup narrows the arteries, restricting proper blood flow. If left unchecked, heart disease increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. Whether or not you have a family history of heart disease, it’s important to understand the risk factors for the condition, which include: • Smoking • Hypertension (high blood pressure) • Sedentary lifestyle • Obesity, especially excess fat in the central abdominal region • Elevated cholesterol • Diabetes mellitus (metabolic disorder resulting in elevated blood glucose) Practicing a healthy lifestyle, which includes good nutrition and exercise, is a good way to help prevent heart disease. Most people should engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. This helps control blood pressure and weight. Talk with your primary care doctor before beginning any exercise program. As for diet and nutrition, choosing the

Long-term care workshop Wednesday editorial@youarecurrent.com AAA Insurance will host a long-term care workshop at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the AAA Hoosier Motor Club Carmel office, 1130 AAA Way. Participants will learn about risks and costs associated with long-term care as well as what programs such as Medicare and Medicaid actually cover. Attendees will also learn about the types of insurance available to them and how to determine whether or not they can afford to self-insure. Long-term care encompasses a variety of services and offerings to help meet an individual’s health and/or personal care needs over an extended period of time. The majority of long-term care actually involves non-skilled personal care assistance for daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating and in-home mobility. Wednesday’s event is free to AAA members age 40 and older, but seating is limited and advance reservations are required. To register, visit www.aaa.com/ longtermcare or call 923-1500, ext. 370. www.currentinfishers.com

right foods, such as fruits, vegetables and lean proteins, and avoiding excessive amounts of caffeine, sugar and salt also are good ways to prevent heart disease. Additionally, adults should have periodic preventive health exams and testing so that fasting cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as blood pressure, can be checked and treated, if necessary. While there is no one symptom that signals the onset of heart disease, there are a number of warning signs. Some of the most common include: • Chest pain or pressure • Unexplained pain in the back, chest, neck or arm • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing • Palpitations or “fluttering” in the chest • Indigestion, heartburn – and sometimes even nausea or loss of appetite Although these symptoms can indicate heart disease, they also may be related to many other conditions. Generally, I recommend contacting your doctor if you have new or unusual symptoms to ensure you are properly evaluated. If your doctor suspects heart disease, he or she will likely refer you for further testing. Chintan Amin, MD, specializes in internal medicine. He is a guest columnist located at IU Health Physicians Internal Medicine – IU Health North Hospital, 11725 Illinois St., Suite 325, in Carmel. He can be reached by calling the office at 688-5800.

Spice it up – Not only are herbs full of flavor, but they can also replace salt, fat and cholesterol in foods. Rosemary, sage, oregano and thyme are excellent, antioxidant-rich choices to fight heart disease, high cholesterol and diabetes. – www.webmd.com Less red – Protein-packed food is the latest health trend, including whey-based protein powder and pasta-shaped soy. Health-conscious consumers are snatching up these items as they cut back on proteinrich red meat, prices increase and they become more concerned about their health. – abcnews.com Overkill – Loading up on SPF 100 for the kids? Many think that the higher SPF, the more coverage, but in reality, SPF 30 blocks 97% of UVB rays, anything higher is doing the same thing. – health.msn.com Tips – HDL cholesterol (the good kind) helps arteries clean themselves. Popping a milk pill, increasing fish intake and drinking beer moderately are ways to boost HDL. – menshealth.com Dessert – That sweet tooth may be doing you more good than you think. A recent Australian study showed people who ate one serving of dark chocolate a day for 10 years were more likely to avoid heart attacks and strokes. - www.healthnews.com

Business

Refocus your priorities Commentary by CJ McClanahan Go get a pen and a piece of paper. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Now, in the next 30 seconds I challenge you to make a list of the four most important things in your life. If you’re like most people, your list will look something like this: 1. Faith 2. Family 3. Friends 4. Health Next, tell me where you spend your time. If you’re honest, you’d probably admit that if you add up all the time you spend at church, the gym, with your friends and family it would equal less than a quarter of the total you spend at work. You know what’s worse? Compare the amount of time you spend on what’s really important in your life to the number of hours you spend each week watching TV and on Facebook. How did it get this way? I’m not a sociologist, but I’ve got a few ideas. The advancement of technology has created a society that demands to be entertained at every minute of the day. When is the last time you sat in your kitchen/living room/basement and you didn’t have the TV on or you weren’t on the Internet? If you’ve got kids, I’d be surprised if they can sit in the car for more than 30 seconds without playing a video game.

Unfortunately, rarely does this desire to be entertained correlate to what’s important in our lives. Next, I believe that that the pace at which our lives work has made us extremely impatient. In other words, rarely do we engage in an activity that will not produce an immediate result. This is why the average American will read less than one non-fiction book per year but can easily tell you the status of all of their friends (via Facebook) or the final three contestants on “American Idol.” It’s tough, but you can make subtle changes that will get you back to what’s really important. First, take a minute to imagine we are at your funeral and a good friend is giving your eulogy. What do you want them to say about you as a spouse or a parent? Were you a good friend? This exercise will help provide a little clarity to your daily life and this clarity will help tweak your behavior. Next, take time to plan activities that refocus you on what’s really important. Write down what’s important and then plan activities that support this list. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Using your big words Commentary by David Cain Business meetings are tough enough, but one sure way to turn off customers is using a lot of industry-specific jargon. Every industry has their own lexicon, including acronyms and shortcuts that only industry insiders understand. It’s a natural tendency for all of us to talk in terms we understand, even if we are discussing things with people outside of our industry circles. It’s the business equivalent of telling inside jokes that only someone who’s known you for years understands. It’s like telling secrets or talking in code. Even if you take the time to explain what your terms mean, often it is an afterthought or in response to your attendees’ inquiry. And, really, no one truly wants to learn your industry – they just want you to know it and explain it in a way that makes sense to them. In business meetings, just like any gathering, you’ll find your attendees will be more willing

to listen, believe and act on what you’re meeting about if you speak in a language that includes them. Even if you explain what your terms mean, you are better off avoiding industry-specific terms and talk in universal terms. Industry jargon will confuse your customer or client and, what’s worse, make them have to think – and thinking leads to indecision. Clean it up and leave the industry lexicon for the water cooler. Impress your prospects and clients by using simple terms and alternative descriptions and analogies for your industry language. What you’ll find is a greater understanding and an audience more willing to take action because they are included and feel just as smart and up-to-speed as you are.

The end of Europe

Commentary by Don Knebel

To visitors, the name Istanbul connotes colorful bazaars, exotic tastes and perhaps a hint of the Arabian Nights. What probably does not come to mind is a modern European city with romantic river cruises, wide boulevards, smartly dressed young people and an active nightlife. But the European flavor of Istanbul today should not be surprising given its location and history. Most of this city of nearly 14 million people is at the eastern end of Europe, across the Bosporus River from Asia, and for almost 1,000 years was perhaps the world’s largest and wealthiest city. The city known today as Istanbul was founded as Constantinople in A.D. 330 by Emperor Constantine as the new capital of the Roman Empire. As Constantine and later emperors sought to resolve issues of Christian theology, they called church leaders to Constantinople and its environs, which became the location of early church councils announcing Christian orthodoxy. When so-called “barbarians,” who believed in Jesus but not his divinity, invaded Rome, the part of the Empire that did not fall continued to be governed from Constantinople. In 532, Emperor Justinian ordered the construction of the Church of Hagia Sophia or “Holy Wisdom,” featuring a unique selfsupporting dome. The Hagia Sophia was the

The Hagia Sophia largest cathedral in the world until 1453 when Constantinople was captured by the Ottoman Turks, who converted the church into a mosque by adding a minaret at each corner. The massive domes of later mosques in the city, including the famous Blue Mosque, were all inspired by the Hagia Sophia. Ataturk, the first president of Turkey, turned Turkey into a secular republic, where the wearing of headscarves by Turkey’s Muslim majority is restricted. To eliminate competing religious claims, the Hagia Sophia was turned into a museum in 1931. And Istanbul has turned into the tenth most popular tourist destination in the world.

It takes more than food to feed the poor

Commentary by Mike Colaw

A few years ago a friend noticed a man begging on the side of the road. Now, any of us who have watched specials on television know that most of these guys are faking it, looking for a free hand out, right? A good Samaritan might give him a few bucks just to show him generosity. My friend decided to do more – he picked him up and took him to eat. After a long conversation over a McDonald’s meal, he learned that the man’s destitute state was a reality. The problem was he had no desire to change. The conversation ended like this: “Thank you for the meal, I needed it. Honestly though, I just want money for liquor.” Well, how do you fix that? Sometimes I think it’s easy for us to believe that benevolence will change someone. I understand that people need basic needs met before they can wrestle through higher levels of thinking. Yet we must not forget the most important issue of the heart. Until there is a transformation of the will, any economic adjustment will be short lived.  What made Christ so different was his passion for people. He would meet their physical needs but quickly engage them at a much deeper level. He inspired divine ethics. I believe too often in our culture ethics and

The surf is up in Indiana!

morality are incorrectly used synonymously. Morality is how people are living, while ethics is how people ought to live. Christ didn’t just acknowledge people’s physical and moral state, he inspired a whole new way to approach life. He delivered divine ethics. I believe meeting physical needs is important. I also believe true transformation doesn’t happen in the stomach, it happens in the heart. If we are truly going to engage the poor and help a needy culture, we must do more than just meet their physical needs. If you really want to make a difference, join a church or missions organization that goes to the next level, one that mentors, engages and teaches people. In that intersection of heart development and meeting physical needs, deep transformation can truly take place.  “Jesus said to her, ‘Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’” John 4:13-14 Mike Colaw is the director of ministries at Trinity Church.

The dangerous Gospel of Jesus Commentary by Bob Walters If one clearly hears the facts of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, one’s heart will be changed by it – one will love it and want more, hate it and want it to go away or develop a conflicting mix of passion, awakening, curiosity, fear, courage, thankfulness, incredulousness, revulsion, anger, confusion and maybe faith … or maybe not. But there’s one thing guaranteed: ambivalence isn’t an option. So says Dallas preacher Matt Chandler in his recently published “The Explicit Gospel,” a book I’m very much enjoying. Chandler isn’t rewriting the Gospel message; he’s encouraging Christians to crave, pursue and know – and for preachers to preach – what the Gospels actually say and reveal about God, eternity and our relationship with the divine. Chandler wisely counsels us to de-emphasize what we want the Gospels to say or hear spurious preachers say. Instead we must focus on and exhort the totality of all that the Gospels really describe about our relationship with God. That can be a dangerous thing, Chandler notes, because upon hearing the Gospel a person’s soul will either soften or harden toward God’s grace. Softening leads toward heaven and the danger of being rejected by the world; hardening leads to24 | June 12, 2012

ward hell, and hell is as dangerous as it gets. But hell isn’t the point. Preaching the truth of Christ is the point, and that’s Chandler’s point. He presents a thorough, biblically buttressed dialectic of how the Bible itself supports the truth of the Gospel if only we read it entirely and preachers preach it explicitly. Chandler cites John chapter six as an example. Everyone loves the story of Jesus miraculously feeding the 5,000 (verses 1-15). But read on (verses 25-71) and discover that Jesus says He is the bread of life, and that for us to be truly fed God requires us “to believe in the One he has sent.” And Jesus really, really means it. You can’t preach the miraculous receiving if you won’t preach the serious believing. That is called “subtracting” from the Gospels and, sorry – half a loaf won’t get anyone into heaven. Our hearts and minds must be strong enough to hear the truth of the explicit Gospel (e.g. John 3:16-17; 14:6-7). Chandler is telling us to be sure to hear it all. Bob Walters (rlwcom@aol.com) appreciates that while our only true peace is in Christ, His Gospel truth can be horrifying to a hardened heart. Pray boldly to hear.

Windows 8: Going 'smarter' Commentary by Ken Colburn

I’m in the market for a new computer; when will Windows 8 be out and is it worth getting? - Stanley Windows 8 is Microsoft’s ambitious attempt to create a new operating system that would allow users to work the same on a PC as they would on a tablet or smartphone. Windows 8 will use a tiled dashboard as its home screen (called Metro) that looks very much like the touch interface on current Windows Phone 7 smartphones. Underneath this dashboard is the traditional Desktop minus some old familiar items like the Start button, which is disorienting at first. I’m predicting that a large number of users will scream, “I want my old Windows back” when they first begin navigating this semi-familiar portion of the operating system, but over time, the new interface will allow you quicker access to information and programs that you want. As of this writing, Windows 8 is still in a test version (currently called Release Preview) and should only be installed by IT pros and software What? – A vending machine at Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn has diluted the notion you need cash or coin. The Swap-O-Matic allows the user to swap and trade items rather than buy them. - whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com

developers that have a spare computer that can be sacrificed for testing purposes. Test or "beta" versions should never be installed on a computer that has any important data or on the only machine you own, as you are almost guaranteed to have problems. Microsoft hasn’t announced a release date as of yet, but the latest information we have suggests that computer manufacturers may start getting their "Release To Manufacturing" version so they can start their build process in late July. If the process follows previous releases, we might start seeing computers pre-installed with Windows 8 hit the market starting in October. Even then, unless you are an ‘early adopter’ that doesn’t mind dealing with being the first to discover a new problem, I’d suggest holding off on jumping into the Windows 8 pool. Letting a few million hardcore techies play with the public release version before you take on the challenge will generally save you a lot of grief. Lots of Web sites and YouTube videos (including ours) will publish all the do’s and don’ts for migrating to Windows 8 if you give

the tech community some time to compile the intelligence. Microsoft always offers special upgrades for those buying a computer with an older operating system close to the launch of a new OS. The Windows 8 upgrade will be available for those buying a new Windows 7 computer between June 2 and Jan. 31, 2013 and allows an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $14.99 (via a download). If you plan on upgrading an existing computer to Windows 8, you will definitely want to wait for a while after it’s released, as this scenario is traditionally the one that has the highest likelihood of issues. If you want to get a better understanding of how Windows 8 will work, you can view a handful of videos that Microsoft has posted here: http://goo.gl/tUFbw

Step into your greatness Commentary by Kristen Boice

Do you ever feel like you can’t get out of your head? Your mind is filled with the same thoughts that play over and over. Do you worry and have a lot of anxiety? Are you operating out of fear? Are these blocks to stepping into your worth? When we start waking up to our inner self, we can start changing it. Awareness is the first step toward making change. Below are some immediate steps you can take to begin shifting your selfworth and stepping into your greatness. 1. Change your thoughts. Your thoughts determine your feelings, and your feelings determine your behavior. It’s important we work on changing our thoughts. When you are fearful or anxious, focus on being grateful. It can be as simple as being thankful for the ability to see or hear or observing nature and noticing what you appreciate. An attitude of gratitude can instantly change your mood. Keep a gratitude journal and write in it to start and end your day. 2. Do something different. Have you heard the saying, “What you resist will persist”? Are you in resistance to something in your life, such as change, because you are afraid of pain, getting hurt or failing? If so, you are going to stay stuck

in the same pattern and way of thinking and being. If you do the same thing, you will get the same results. For example, when you feel angry or afraid, instead of yelling, screaming or withdrawing, take a walk and be intentional about it. 3. Try out different ways of being. If you want more joy in your life, try stepping into joyfulness. Walk around as if you are joyful. If you want to be more flexible, try being flexible in different situations. We are all born pure souls, and then we are layered with childhood stuff, trauma, society, peer pressure and so on. We want to get back to who we are at the core. 4. Develop a vision. We think in pictures. Picture the vision for your life and how you want to be or act. Having a vision can lead you to change your thoughts, feelings and to take action. You are here for a purpose! It’s never too late to get rid of the old negative tapes that started early in your life and be the person you were created to be.

Family history advice column a helpful find Commentary by Darla Kinney Scoles There is nothing new about advice columns, as the likes of Dear Abby and Ann Landers have been around for quite some time. Applying that forum to family history, however, is a somewhat more recent turn – and newer still, to me. Recently I discovered “Dear Myrtle,” a genealogy blog that takes reader questions and answers them publicly for the benefit of all. Tagged as “Your friend in genealogy since 1995,” “Dear Myrtle” has won all sorts of accolades for its service to searchers. I’m apparently behind in finding this gem only of late. But that’s OK – any family history junkie will concur that we find things just when we need them in this endeavor. Averaging 400 posts per year, the Q-and-A blog covers a lot of territory – from multiple marriage questions and military records of the sick and wounded, to British royal staff records. Most posts include photos, which can be quite helpful when trying to understand and translate information from another’s experience to one’s own. No stone is left unturned in delving into a question, either, as all possibilities are explored and examined for the best answer based on evidence in hand. Sometimes

the answer is simply that more evidence is needed still. The blog also includes lessons for those just starting out, organization tips for those buried in paperwork chaos, webinars, suggested books and even Tweets for those who like their genealogy on the go. All of this free advice comes from Pat Richley-Erickson, a frequent guest speaker at regional and national genealogy conferences, whose blog is consistently among the top five family history blogs internationally. Richley-Erickson is co-founder of the Genea-Quilters group on Facebook, and founder of www.GeneaWebinars.com, a centralized calendar and blog for all known genealogy webinar hosts and virtual presenters. Seek advice from “Dear Myrtle” at http:// blog.dearmyrtle.com/ Now that I’ve found the place with all the answers, which of my 5,637 questions should I ask Myrtle first?

Her most recent work involves the creation of “Stories”, an individualized writing service helping people get their personal histories down on paper. Contact her at darlakinneyscoles@gmail.com.

Gardening is for the birds Commentary by Holly Lindzy

Each morning for the past month I’ve watched cardinals, robins and catbirds devouring my serviceberry fruit, less than 10 feet from my seat on the porch. It’s been my favorite part of the day. Not only that, but I’ve also noted the hummingbirds back at my fuchsia, catmint and agastache. What fun! And there are several bird species that gather and flit in the burning bush hedge across the street. We see the same families from day to day and how they’ve grown. I love it! I think that’s why I’ve decided gardening is for the birds . . . sincerely. Used to be, I’d spend my mornings filling and refilling birdfeeders. I enjoyed putting out quality seed like safflower and thistle and watching the birds flock and riot over who’d be next. Before long, all the ruckus over thieving squirrels and empty feeders had me worn out. Not to mention somewhat broke. That’s why in recent years, I’ve taken to planting things around my yard specifically for the

birds to feast on so I can observe them in a more natural environment – and it’s much more economical. For example, my Black-eyed Susan is in brilliant bloom right now, but by the end of the summer it will be mobbed by finches reaping the seed. And its bee balm companion? The hummingbirds will be stopping at it until the end of summer. Come fall, I hope to find a bird’s nest in my Rose of Sharon. If I’m lucky, it’s a hummingbird’s. Gardening is so much more than just flowers. As much as I loved shopping at the Feed and Seed, I find it more rewarding to see the birds enjoy things naturally, as it was meant to be – squirrels and all. And, it gives me an excuse to buy more plants.

Composting 101

Commentary by Chris Arney

Compost is the number one soil amendment to add to the garden, potted plants and lawn. Composting is relatively easy, and Mother Nature does all the work! Basically, composting is the decomposition of plant material. Properly composted material will be weed- and disease-free as well as full of nutrients and organic matter. Compost can loosen soil, increase water-holding capacity and add fertility. The recipe for compost starts with two parts “green” material – grass clippings, weeds, spent flowers, manure, kitchen scraps, etc. Green materials provide a nitrogen source to feed the microbes that “digest” the pile. Add one part “brown” material – leaves, straw, pine needles, etc. Top off with a few shovels of soil, to inoculate the pile with microbes and bacteria. Mix in a little water to moisten, and pile up. The compost should be kept moist, as a dry pile will compost very slowly. The finer you can grind or chop debris for the pile, the faster www.currentinfishers.com

it will break down. As the microbe population grows and the feeding frenzy begins, the pile will begin to heat up. Some piles can heat up to 130 degrees. This heat will kill off weed seeds and help to sterilize the debris. After the pile cools down, thoroughly mix the pile with a pitchfork, add some water and let it heat up again. Repeat this process until all material has turned into rich compost. The best piles are three to four feet tall. Having this amount will help the pile heat up and compost faster. A simple pile will work, however you can use barrels, trashcans or store-bought compost bins. An online search will yield hundreds of different types of composting systems. There are many recipes for compost – choose the one that works for you and enjoy! Chris Arney is the director of landscaping operations at EA Outdoor Services.

UBER BOUTIQUE

New master bath gives spa-like experience Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BATHROOM: This home, located in the Carolina Commons subdivision on the east side of Carmel, was built in 1985, and the current homeowners purchased the home in 2000. According to the owners, “The bathroom was a typical ’80s style, with a large garden tub, dark wood, bulkheads, low sinks and a small shower. We were thinking about moving out of the neighborhood, but we like the area and our lot, so we decided to invest in the house. We started with a kitchen remodel and then moved to the master bath.” SPA-LIKE DESIGN: The owners worked with the design team to create the vision they wanted. “We travel to nice hotels and spas quite a bit, and brought ideas from those places into our bathroom design. We spend a lot of time in the master bath, and we wanted a spa feel in our home.” MASTER BATH DETAILS: The project included a new walk-in shower with pebble mosaic tiled floor, natural Gobi slate tile walls, LED lighting and Brizo Virage plumbing fixtures in oil-rubbed bronze. A new Kohler Archer dropin soaking tub includes a slate surround and matching cabinet panels on the front. The cabinetry is antique-white custom maple cabinetry with a brown glaze and center tower cabinet. The owner commented, “My favorite part of the new bathroom is the large shower, with multiple 28 | June 12, 2012

“Our customers love Linnea’s Lights because of their unique scents and how nicely they burn. We are also proud to say they are made locally.” – ANNE BRANHAM jets, the pebble floor, the soft LED lighting and the slate walls with built-in niches. At first I was a little worried about how the pebbles would feel, but they feel like a little massage on your feet. The heated floors are nice, too. We enjoy having plenty of room in the shower.” A SPACE JUST FOR YOU: The homeowners noted, “When you spend time and money on a kitchen remodel, you are doing it for yourself and for others, like family and friends. When you do a master bath remodel, you are doing it for yourself only. It is nice to have a space that is all your own.” Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a full-service design/build firm serving Hamilton County.
