New Jack in the Box brings West Coast competition to Fishers By Dan Domsic firstname.lastname@example.org On June 11, a new Jack in the Box restaurant opened on the corner of 116th Street and Allisonville Road. The fast food restaurant that boasts a 24-hour breakfast menu is a corporately owned venture, general manager Joe Benedict said. Approximately 100 employees staff the restaurant. Benedict said he struggled to find enough people in Fishers to hire, so he had to recruit in the surrounding communities, including
Noblesville and Indianapolis. Benedict is one of five general managers that were hired when Jack in the Box started opening stores in the area about one year ago. He said there have been crowds at the restaurant, and the location sees consistently busy lunch and dinner hours.
Fashion accessory company BootSkirt keeps it local By Dan Domsic email@example.com BootSkirt, a new online company in Fishers, aims to provide a new, locally made fashion accessory. BootSkirt, founded by Fishers resident Barbara Stenacker and her partner Apryl Turner, makes and sells fabric “skirts” that are designed to accent and alter women’s boots. The wearer puts the fabric ring on each leg, and the outer, patterned part of the item blouses over the top of the boot. Gallery 116, Goodman Shoes and bootskirt.com are the only places to find the new product. Each unit costs $40 plus tax, whether purchased online or in store. Stenacker, a retired registered nurse, said she got the idea when Turner showed her a new pair of over-theknee boots. The accessory comes in several varieties – black faux fur, white faux fur, blue denim, brown with sparkles, camouflage – and some even have a zipper for storing IDs, credit cards, etc. After the idea came to her, Stenacker had to figure out how to make the
product come to fruition. She worked with Turner and local seamstresses to make it possible. When she didn’t know what steps to take, Stenacker said there were people willing to step in and help make the product. Stenacker said she hopes the product becomes a trend that is recognizable in the greater-Indianapolis area. Her aspirations for BootSkirt are grounded in wanting to be a local business. She said she’s been told that her product could be big enough to mass produce in a foreign country. Given that opportunity, Stenacker would pass it up in favor of maintaining local employees. BootSkirt is approaching its first full retail season, but before the new business was ready to take off, safety measures were put in place. Stenacker had a lawyer incorporate a limited liability corporation to protect her and her partners, trademarked the product and submitted it for a patent. For more information on the company and its products, e-mail Stenacker at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NEW HOPE FOR CHILDREN with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD and ADHD
Highly Trained Medical Staff • Advanced Individualized Treatment Options • Most Major Medical Insurance Plans Accepted Genetic Consultation • Review of Medical records • Laboratory testing “While early intervention is critical, ASD Treatment Clinic taught us it is never too late with children on the Autism Spectrum. We have three teenage children on the spectrum with varying ranges of disabilities. With Genetic Consultants of Indiana, ASD Treatment Clinic we learned what was happening to our children from the inside out. I call it our roadmap. We found out what our children needed without guessing or trying experimental treatments. Plus we loved that our major medical insurance was accepted.” - Bob & Sharon Smith, IN
“A child sneaks out of the house, runs away, is hyper, has minimal focus and can’t socialize with friends for more than a minute. That used to be our son, Jack.
• SOCIALIZATION: Why is my child having difficulty making friends? • IMPULSIVENESS: Why doesn’t my child understand consequences of his/her actions? • FOCUSING: Why does my child have problems paying attention in school and at home? • HYPERACTIVITY: Why can’t my child sit still, and has trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep? • ANGER: Why does my child display such anger and gets out of control with his/her emotions? If you can relate to any of these questions there is help.
People think the answer to autism and ADHD are psychiatric medicines, but we knew that was only going to cover up his real symptoms. Despite this, we tried several mainstream treatments that produced little to no results. In the six months that Jack has been on the protocol through ASD Treatment Clinics, he has experienced much improvement with his focus, learning ability, behavior and overall wellbeing. Early intervention is very important for children on the autism spectrum and we thank God that we were led to the ASD Treatment Clinic. Jack now has a treatment that we can trust will improve not only his life but the lives of our entire family.” - Renee and Ted Zlotopolski, Arnold, MO

Childhood What’s good about bad role models
Commentary by Susan Bryant If your kids’ childhood is anything like my kids’, it’s pretty nice. Nice schools, nice neighbors, nice friends, nice family . . . their world has been carefully designed and monitored by me and my husband to be as good as possible (as it should be.) But now and again, a rogue influence arrives in an unexpected package – a bad adult role model. I’m not talking about something as horrible as a child abuser or predator here, just your garden variety bad example for being a grown-up. It can be quite a shock when your child has his or her first experience with one. After all, as good parents, we try to manipulate our children’s world to include as many good role models as we can. The vast majority of adults my kids have come in contact with in our area (at school, in camps, in stores, pretty much everywhere) have been so consistently pleasant, friendly and helpful to children as to be an invisible (but expected) backdrop in their lives. Sure, kids deal with other kids who are not always nice, but when they unexpectedly experience an adult who is thoughtless, rude, selfish or mean, their universe gets a little rocked. Our first instinct is to remove this particular offender from our child’s life, which is often the best reaction. But with some issues, and when children reach a certain maturity level,
the example a bad role model provides can be quite educational. How do people react to this person? How are they regarded? What effect might this have on their daily life? We can talk about these life lessons hypothetically until we’re blue in the face, but to see a living, breathing example of what not to do can be much more powerful. Of course, we want to teach compassion and tolerance for difficult people. We can’t always know why anyone acts the way they do. The reality, however, is that not all adults turn out well. Those who routinely act poorly don’t deserve a free pass just because of their grown-up status. If we make excuses for their bad behavior because it’s uncomfortable to address or easier to gloss over, we tell our kids that what we consider important now – kindness, fairness, patience, etc. – can be considered negotiable when they’re older. Bus drivers, teachers, coaches, relatives – lots of adults float in and out of our kids’ lives, and not all of them are great. But bad role models can serve a purpose, too. They’re part of the “real world” that we’re sending our kids into, and they can provide valuable vicarious lessons if we let them. Susan Bryant is a freelance writer and mother of two in Fishers.

DIVORCE – WHAT TO EXPECT: Options to Resolve Your Case Prior to Trial In family law, a majority of cases settle outside of the courtroom. There are many reasons to attempt to reach a settlement, including uncertainty as to the judge’s decision, anxiety about testifying in court, the potential to increase animosity between the parties, and the attorney’s fees associated with attending a hearing. It is common for a party to never step foot inside of a courtroom because the parties reach an agreement on all terms without the requiring the court’s intervention. There are two primary methods to reach an out-of-court agreement: informal negotiations and mediation. Informal negotiations involve communication between the parties and/or their counsel concerning the terms of a final agreement. This process involves communication as to the terms of a final agreement without the assistance of a third party (a mediator or judge). In some instances, the parties may be able to reach an agreement on the general terms of an agreement and engage counsel to assist with the finalization of those terms to ensure approval by the court. In other cases, counsel for the parties will exchange proposals and draft agreements in an attempt to reach a resolution. In the event parties are unable to reach an agreement through informal negotiations, mediation is a common next step. Mediation may be agreed upon by the parties or ordered by the court. At mediation, the parties are typically placed in separate rooms with their counsel and the mediator serves as the neutral third party who exchanges proposals between the parties in intensive and focused settlement negotia-

tions. The mediator’s role is to assist the parties in their attempt to reach common ground by addressing certain considerations as to an anticipated reasonable outcome in court as well as other realistic and pragmatic concerns with any proposed settlement. There are instances where parties do not reach an agreement during mediation. In that case, a final hearing is the next step as the mediator does not have the authority to order the parties to comply with certain terms or reach a final agreement. A recent trend in family law is for the parties to engage in a collaborative divorce process. In such instances, parties are focused on reaching a collaborative agreement and hire respective counsel trained to do so. The process is similar in many respects to informal negotiations and mediation, with the ultimate goal of reaching an agreeable settlement. One different aspect of the collaborative law process is that in the event parties are unable to reach a settlement, they must hire new counsel and begin the process anew. At Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., our team has the experience, the understanding, and the compassion to assist with your family law needs. If you have questions or concerns regarding divorce, mediation, collaborative law or any other family law concerns, please contact our firm at 317.DIVORCE or visit our website at www.hzlegal.com.

The decay of perfection Commentary by Mike Colaw The other day we were sitting together as a family, and my younger two kids were talking about how great Dad is. My oldest said something like this, “Dad isn’t great, I heard him say a bad word.” Well, there it was, that moment when I realized I wasn’t “the best” anymore to my son. Honestly, I don’t remember what I said or when I said it. Don’t worry, it probably wasn’t that bad of a word. I thought about defending myself, asking what it was specifically so I could tell him that it isn’t a great word, but it really isn’t a “bad” word. Instead of trying to prove my perfection, I sat him down and admitted my faults. I told him he was right, I'm not perfect, and I do make mistakes. I asked for his forgiveness and told him I also want to show him how to respond when he makes mistakes. Even in my failures I can demonstrate right actions. The guidelines for life in the Bible are clear, yet no one is perfect, so I guess a great parent should not only strive to do right, but strive also to demonstrate how to make corrections when the mistakes inevitably come. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:23-24 ESV)
Somewhere in the intersection of perfection and humble correction, I can demonstrate what it means to be a Godly parent. So as my children, one by one, realize my faults and my weaknesses, they will realize I am not the strongest dad, nor the smartest, honestly I am not even sure I am a good dad sometimes! So as they grow and their perception of my life puts me smack dab in the middle of mediocre, I pray they will see what a great dad should look like – someone who is willing to be corrected. So what will you do? I challenge you not to perfection, but to make mid-stream corrections and teach them how to do the same. Say sorry, admit when you’re wrong, ask for forgiveness, man up and show your kids how they truly should walk through life. Now that’s a good dad. Acts 2:38, “And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’” Mike Colaw is the director of ministries at Trinity Church.

Fishers Town Council
Action: Request to approve appointment(s) to Town Boards and Commissions passed What it means: According to a Council Action Form, the Town of Fishers had two vacant positions on the Redevelopment Commission. John Weingardt, council member, recommended the appointment of Fishers residents David Compton and Wayne Crane. The two residents are now part of the commission. Action: Request to approve the installation of a traffic signal at 126th Street and Promise Road passed What it means: More construction. Construction is ready to start and scheduled to be completed by Aug. 9. There was a budget of $146,700 for the project, and Morphey Construction Inc. was the low bidder at $135,981. Action: Request to approve settlement agreement for 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard right-of-way passed What it means: In 2010, the Town of Fishers began pursuing constructing a roundabout to replace the intersection at 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard. The town did not have right-of-way at three of the four corners â€“ which is now being purchased by the Town of Fishers from Crosspoint Seven LLC for $60,100. Construction is slated for 2013. Action: R061812B passed What it means: This resolution is a new policy that is mandated by the state. Two new statutes were enacted by the State of Indiana that directly tackle nepotism in municipalities. In order to be in compliance with the law by July 1, human resources at the Town of Fishers recommended the policy that prohibits the hiring of employees that would directly work for a relative. Action: Ord031912 passed What it means: There was a request to approve this ordinance, which is an amendment to the Sunbeam PUD. This was its third reading. The ordinance allows for the adoption of standards for a new residential development at the corner of 116th Street and Cumberland Road. The developer, Watermark Residential, already had the rights to build, but this seals the deal. However, town council members included amendment that would cede right-of-way to the town and allow for the construction of a dedicated right-hand-turn lane on 116th Street if needed.

CUTTING THROUGH THE COMPETITION

Fishers High School student Cat Bouwkamp to fence in London 2012 Paralympics
A deal is a deal Bouwkamp made huge strides in the wheelchair fencing community in the past five years, scooping up medals at various competitions. She even beat her dad, Alan, in one contest. Bouwkamp bet him that if she ever qualified for the Olympics she could get a tattoo. One gold medal at the Wheelchair Pan American Championships later, Bouwkamp sports a tattoo on her left ankle commemorating the milestone in her career.
By Dan Domsic • email@example.com In the world of Olympic sports, they say the only thing faster than a fencer’s blade is a bullet fired in shooting events. Cat Bouwkamp, a Fishers High School student, is taking that kind of speed to the wheelchair fencing competition at the London 2012 Paralympics this summer. The 16 year old is preparing to travel to the world’s most famous athletic competition. When her plane to Europe goes wheels up, she’ll be on her way to face opponents twice her age who train to slice and dice the competition like it’s a full-time job.
A new playing field
Bouwkamp sits in her wheelchair, fencing mask obscuring her face and sword at the ready. Her and her opponent’s chairs are locked into place in what is referred to as “the strip.” The fencers have enough space between them to parry and strike. Stationary fencing subtracts the ability to run from an opponent, and in doing so, adds another level of difficulty. Facing difficulty isn’t anything new for Bouwkamp. She originally chose to fence because after playing basketball, softball, tennis – every sport available that wasn’t football or hockey – it was a unique sport. “I saw a class at the YMCA and I kind of just wanted to try it,” Bouwkamp said. Picking up the sabre, Bouwkamp kept up with others in the beginning. But as the other athletes excelled, she couldn’t match their pace. She was born with fibular hemimelia and a club foot, and as a result, has one leg stronger than the other. She couldn’t keep up with the other students at the IndySabre Club – the group she practices with. At that point, a referee recommended www.currentinfishers.com
´ Foil, Epée, Sabre – Know the difference
Bouwkamp (left) fences on a global stage. (Photo submitted by Alan Bouwkamp) she enter the competitive realm of wheelchair fencing. She said she expected the transition to wheelchair fencing to be bittersweet, but after being a part of it, she became close with an entire community of athletes, as opposed to a handful in another.
Cutting through the competition
After eight years of practice and five years on the competitive circuit, Bouwkamp racked up a record. She has 15 medals under her belt, 11 of which are gold. Her win in the foil competition at the Wheelchair Pan American Championships last year qualified her for this year’s games. Bouwkamp said that the fencing community describes the sport as high-speed chess, combining strategy with lightning-fast movement. “It’s kind of cheesy, but you have to have a mental toughness,” she said. “You have to be OK with physically beating your opponent.” The focus and concentration that the sport takes are two of the biggest challenges on the road to success, according to Bouwkamp. “When you’re fencing you’re not only fencing for yourself, you’re fencing for the other person,” she said. “You have to place your move and predict what they’re going to do. “You have to have a large repertoire of skills, but you have to know when to use them.” Current in Fishers
Bouwkamp competes in three different types of wheelchair fencing – foil, épée and sabre. Each weapon has a different strike zone and attack style. Both the foil and epee are used to poke the opponent. The sabre, Bouwkamp’s original weapon of choice, utilizes a slashing motion.
Global perspective in Indiana
Preparation for the London Games is in full swing. During the school year, Bouwkamp practices about three times a week. She takes time to do normal teenager stuff – worrying about getting a driver’s license and going to FHS every day as a National Honor Society student. But with summer here, she has about five practices every week. Practices can last up to 40 minutes, but some of them focus on motivation since Bouwkamp’s coach, Val Kizik, won’t be in London to push her. Bouwkamp will be on her own when she faces athletes from around the globe. Having already met those athletes, she has built contacts from around the world. And she knows how they feel about going up against her. “The Russian team has always called me [in a European accent] ‘their little sister,” she said. Duels with stoic fencers might be a challenge, but Bouwkamp stills pushes to be the top wheelchair fencer. “This is something she has done with support,” her father, Alan Bouwkamp, said, “but she’s done it on her own.” He continued to say everything she’s done has been complemented by a good attitude.

Opinion Mitch would be best handling U.S. budget
It is our position that while fireworks are fun to both set off and watch, they are also explosives and can cause serious injury if not handled with the proper respect. As the Fourth of July approaches, we will begin to see temporary signs titled “Fireworks” occupy empty shops all over the county. We urge the patronage of these shops and the use of their products. We do, however, insist on safety being taken seriously. We understand that when it comes to fireworks, accidents happen, even when safety measures are being taken. This gives us even more reason to conduct the seemingly simple task of lighting a firework with caution and focus. Whether it is a defective fuse, misfired bottle rocket or a mortar stuck in the tube, anything can happen (especially when an adult beverage is added into the mix), as any emergency room worker can attest. We hope that everyone has a fun and safe Independence Day. If lighting fireworks, please be sure to drink responsibly (and only if of legal age) and do not be the one in your neighborhood who has the fire department join your celebration.

In short supply
Commentary by Terry Anker
The Greeks have decided to stay in the Eurozone and have agreed to continuing negotiations with their creditors to remain fiscally afloat. In elections last week, voters on the historic and blue-watered nation elected, albeit by a narrow margin, political figures who have asserted, albeit in the most tentative of ways, that they are committed to keeping Greece on the path to greater financial responsibility and reducing spending. Good news. The world’s economy has become so intertwined that the failure of one errant nation affects all the rest. Whether these newest office-holders are more successful at keeping spending in line with revenue remains to be seen. But for now, Europe, along with the U.S. markets, is resting a little easier. Would it be particularly pessimistic to believe that the Greek politicians, like those domiciled here on our own shores, are unlikely to persevere? A recent City-County Council move by our neighbors to the south makes the point. Arguing that an array of city-funded
benefits should be expanded to a new group of employee. No discussion addressed the reality that sharing a pie with more folks means that one needs a bigger pie or will have to serve smaller pieces to each. While we can, and perhaps should, discuss who should have pie – and we can, and perhaps should, determine how much pie each should get – it is patently irresponsible to offer pie to more without in some form acknowledging that there are consequences. The Greeks, like our own humble state, must conform to the basic laws of arithmetic. If we all work less, there is less excess to share. If we all consume more, there is less excess to share. Innovation, creativity and risk can build a bigger pie – but don’t we still have to conform to the rules of supply?

With all due respect to our fine governor, Mitch Daniels, and his outstanding track record, we’re saddened to see him become the president of Purdue University. Why? It’s not because he can’t or wouldn’t make quantum fiscal leaps up in West Lafayette – that puckering sound you just heard was the faculty contemplating budget revisions – but, come on, he is exactly the man for the job in Washington, the one where he puts a stop to government taking on nonsensical debt. His blunt approach can hurt – ask anyone connected to higher education in this state – but the pain is “inflicted” for the right reasons. We hope, one day, after his stint in academia, he will pursue a post in Washington. It doesn’t seem likely, but we can hope, right? ••• And so they had a turn-away weekend earlier this month at our region’s Center for the Performing Arts. From the gala – orchestrated by Jim Austin and the centerpiece of which was the induction of Barry Manilow, Alan and Marilyn Bergman and Cole Porter into the Great American Songbook Hall of Fame as the inaugural class – to the stunning performances that night, we were perhaps more impressed with the quality of the 10 finalists at The Great American Songbook High School Competition. Each gave his or her best shot, and, ultimately, 15-year-old Nick Ziobro of Manilus, N.Y., blew away the field (and the judges) to take home first place. Kudos to the Michael Feinstein Initiative (the man, himself, along with staffers Chris Lewis and Karen Kelsey) for putting together an incredibly memorable evening.

Dos and don'ts on your big day Laughs by Danielle Wilson I’m a bossy person by nature; always have been. Some people are just born to lead or at least to tell others what to do. So, in this vein, and inspired by the wedding Doo and I recently attended, here are my dos and don’ts for the Big Day. Do put someone in charge. You don’t have to hire a wedding coordinator, but at least round up a control-freak aunt who isn’t afraid to order people around or have groomsmen hate her. The timing and details make or break a wedding; a BOS (%itch on Site) can ensure everything flows smoothly. Don’t chew gum at the altar, period. Spit. It. Out. Don’t make your attendants stand throughout the ceremony if it’s over 15 minutes. And for God’s sake, make sure they snack beforehand and know not to lock their knees. “Bridesmaid down! Bridesmaid down!” Do consider parking. The reception venue was in a downtown location, with no attached garage. We either had to drive around and wait for a street spot to open or park in a scary pay lot two blocks away under the expressway. Had I known this was an urban safari, I’d have swapped stilettos for hiking boots. Don’t make your guests wait to eat, especially if you have an evening wedding. This past weekend, the only sustenance served between
the end of the ceremony at 7:00 and the opening of the buffet at 9:15 were alcohol and lemonade. When the bride and groom finally went through the line, the rush to eat conjured images of the Titanic life-boat stampede: “Women and children first!” They should have been passing hors d’oeuvres or set up a cheese table. Better yet, they should have let us eat dinner as soon as we arrived; then no one gets wasted on cheap vodka or devours an entire eight-top’s praline favors. Do keep in mind your cleavage. If your dream dress is strapless, please make sure it comes up high enough to cover the girls. The fact that the bride did not experience a wardrobe malfunction is truly remarkable. For the comfort level of your guests, particularly those with heart conditions, consider adding straps for at least the dancing portion of the evening. They’ll make for a much less stressful evening for all! Do make it personal. The bride and groom, both physicians, choose Robert Palmer’s “Doctor, Doctor” for their first dance. Far more unique than “I Will Always Love You”! I’m sure your wedding will be beautiful, but it’ll be better if you listen to me. Peace out.

Botox for headaches? Commentary by Dr. Barry Eppley Q: I have had frontal headaches for about 10 years. A low-dose Botox injection cut the pain of my headache from a nine to about a five for seven weeks. Then last week, I was back to a nine again. Is there a procedure for more permanent relief? If so, do you think insurance will cover it? A: You might have had more significant migraine relief with a higher dose of Botox. Three months or so is a fairly standard period of time for the duration of Botox’s effects. If Botox is effective in the supraorbital area for migraine reduction, then surgical decompression of the supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves should provide similar (and hopefully greater) and more sustained relief than the injections. This is done through an endoscopic technique from small incisions in the scalp behind the hairline. Generally, 70 percent of patients will have a noticeable and sustained reduction in the frequency and severity of their headaches with surgical nerve decompression. The remaining 30 percent is a mixture between those who are “cured” and those who saw limited to no benefit. Insurance is very strict about not covering migraine decompression surgery. They have a hard-line stance that it is still “experimental.” There is a lot of published information from studies on the effectiveness of migraine surgery, but this has not swayed their stance.
Q: I have had three c-sections, bowel obstruction surgery, hernia surgery and a hysterectomy. I’m wondering if getting a tummy tuck would be possible for me. Also, would I be a viable candidate for the insurance to cover this procedure? A: It would be impossible for me to say whether you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck based on your complex abdominal surgical history alone. However, I have seen many patients with similar histories, and they all were perfectly good candidates for tummy tuck surgery. So based on your information alone, I would assume that you would be a reasonable candidate. One of the very good benefits of a tummy tuck in patients with complex abdominal surgeries is that many of the abdominal scars as well as the loose skin and fat can be removed and traded for one single horizontal scar placed low on the abdomen. Often, one gets a simultaneous pubic lift as well. Insurance does not cover this, nor do we attempt to process it for elective cosmetic tummy tucks. While you have a complex abdominal history and likely numerous contour deformities from them, these are still cosmetic and not functional issues.

With the heat in full swing, it is time to get out the grill and start cooking
By Christian Sorrell • firstname.lastname@example.org The warm middle months of the year mean different things to different people: outdoor sports, concerts, farmers markets and festivals all across Indiana. For most of us out there, it also means grilling, especially with America’s unofficial cookout holiday of the year, July 4, quickly approaching. We have assembled two unique recipes that will help integrate the fruitiness of summer into your grilling repertoire and keep you from boring your friends and family with dreary hamburgers and lackluster hot dogs. Grilled Nectarines with Mascarpone Cream Ingredients: 1/3 cup mascarpone cheese, 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt, 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon, 4 nectarines, 1 tablespoon canola oil, 8 teaspoons balsamic glaze or honey, 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted
Directions: Preheat grill to medium-high. Combine mascarpone, yogurt, sugar and 1 teaspoon tarragon in a medium bowl. Refrigerate. Cut nectarines in half and scoop out the pits. Brush cut sides with oil. Oil grill rack. Grill nectarines cutside down until softened and beginning to brown. Divide nectarines among eight plates. Fill each half with 1 tablespoon of mascarpone mixture and drizzle with 1 teaspoon balsamic glaze or honey. Top with almonds and chopped tarragon. Tips: When grilling fragile foods that you don’t want to stick, oiling the grill rack is essential. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. Remember to never use cooking spray on a hot grill! Blueberry-glazed Barbecue Ribs Ingredients: 4 cups water, 4 pounds countrystyle pork ribs, 2 pints fresh blueberries, 1 medium onion, thinly sliced, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger root, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/2 tea-
spoon coarsely ground pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt Directions: Bring water to full boil in 6-quart saucepan. Add ribs. Cook over medium-high heat until ribs are fork tender (about 20 to 25 minutes). Meanwhile, heat gas grill on medium. Place all remaining ingredients in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until flavors are blended (about 12 to 15 minutes). Place ribs on grill. Baste with blueberry sauce. Grill, basting and turning occasionally, until ribs are fork tender (about 20 to 25 minutes). Cook remaining blueberry sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Serve sauce over ribs.

Yellow Brick Road leads to Beef & Boards for local ‘munchkins’ By Patricia Rettig • email@example.com Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre’s current production of “The Wizard of Oz” offers four local young thespians a rare opportunity to make Munchkinland a reality. They were chosen from more than 100 central Indiana children who auditioned for the limited number of roles. “I have loved the movie and the music since I was little,” remarked Madison Moll, who will attend Hamilton Southeastern Junior High this fall. This is the 11th production for 11-year-old Madison. “I like being able to play a character and be someone different than who I am,” she said. For 10-year-old Sydney Grace Johnson of Fishers, performing doesn’t require a stage. “I love choreographing performances for the neighborhood with my friends,” the Sand Creek Intermediate student said. And Sydney has no plans to stop. “(I want to) obtain a theater/ dance degree at IU – and be famous!” Sharing her fellow Munchkins’ love of performing is Kendall Greene, 10, a student at College Wood Elementary. “I love being in front of people and being on stage,” she said. When not on stage, she’s a dance student at Performer’s Edge in Carmel, and a competitive gymnast at Deveau’s in Fishers. Sydney Greene, a student at Carmel Middle School who also takes dance at Performer’s Edge, would like to become a professional

Indiana Child Support Statute Changes
Are you aware of the upcoming changes in Indiana child support statutes that may affect child support payments and your child’s eligibility for educational support? Effective July 1, 2012, Public Law 111-2012 will change a child’s presumptive age for termination of child support from twenty-one to nineteen. The law also amends the time frame in which a child may seek educational support, affecting children in the 18-21 age range who may need educational support or may soon lose their eligibility for support. Parents with previous support orders may want to revisit the issue if the order does not explicitly refer to “educational support.” All parents should consider seeking legal advice prior to terminating their support obligations when their child turns nineteen. Although many parents’ duties to pay child support will end when their child turns nineteen, a parent who fails to pay support that is owed risks a finding of contempt and possible criminal sanctions. Also, if you have additional children subject to a child support order, you will likely need to modify your child support obligation upon the emancipation of your nineteen year old. Our firm is committed to providing clients with personalized service and updating parents on changes in Indiana law that may affect their interests and their children. We encourage parents who believe that their child may be affected to contact counsel and assess whether action is necessary before Public Law 111-2012 becomes effective July 1, 2012. Please contact Harden Jackson Law at 317-569-0770 or www.hardenjacksonlaw.com for more information about the changes in Indiana's Parenting Guidelines. The above is for informational purposes only should not be considered legal advice. Each case is unique and you should consult an attorney for advice regarding your particular situation.

Salute to senior service Noblesville woman honored as Indiana’s top senior volunteer By Jordan Fischer • firstname.lastname@example.org Noblesville resident Patricia Rew was honored this month as Indiana’s most outstanding senior volunteer by Home Instead Senior Care. The 70-year-old volunteer was selected to receive the Salute to Senior Service award for her “dedicated community service,” including her work at Agapé Therapeutic Riding Resources, Inc., located in Cicero. “Patricia is a valued member of the community and a senior hero to many,” said Jeff Huber, president and chief operating officer of Home Instead, Inc. “She has shown that volunteer opportunities for older adults should not diminish because of age. Seniors such as Patricia are making important contributions to their communities through charities, nonprofit organizations and faith communities.” Agapé provides horses, equipment, facilities and helpers for more than 800 riders with physical, mental or emotional challenges and also at-risk youth. Rew’s duties include assisting each rider and helping to guide the horse around the indoor arena and on wooded trails. She also provides expertise in event coordination, fundraising and artistic abilities. Volunteerism has been a constant for Rew since her teen years. Her service extends into the Agapé Literacy Program; The Cowgirls of Agapé; Helping Hands of Agapé; Breakfast for the Barn; Par for the Horse Golf Outing; volunteer fairs at local high schools and churches; and Agapé’s Miniature Horse Program.
“There are no words to describe the dedication Pat has for Agapé,” wrote Katrina Brown, a therapeutic riding and horsemanship instructor at Agapé, on Rew’s nominee profile (which can be found online at www.salutetoseniorservice. com). “Pat is a ‘go to’ woman in our organization. She is always willing to stay late to get the job done and does so with such joy in her heart! She is wonderful with the students, families, and volunteers/staff. She is constantly honing her skills and broadening her education to give more at Agapé. I am so proud to work with Pat and watch her touch so many lives!” According to Chris Sorenson, program coordinator for Agapé, it’s “a pleasure to work with Pat Rew! She comes here with a radiant smile and a heart of gold. She has a gift of working

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 Vol. 2, No. 1 with our special needs riders, able to make each one feel loved and appreciated for their individuality. She helps them enjoy a great experience while they are here, they have fun and at the same time learn and improve their capabilities. It is not always easy volunteering with horses and a special needs population – there are the physical challenges, hot weather, mosquitoes, cold weather, the occasional horse hoof stepping on a foot, a rider grabbing or pinching a volunteer. It never phases Pat, she keeps coming back and she keeps smiling through it all, and then asks, ‘Is there anything else I can do?’” As a state winner, Rew was considered for the national Salute to Senior Service award. The national award was presented to Clark Paradise of Lakewood, NJ, who was honored for his work with Your Grandmother’s Cupboard, a nonprofit organization he and his wife founded to meet the needs of the thousands of homeless families throughout New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania.

Four years of confidence Commentary by David Cain
My youngest daughter at only 4 years old has developed quite an imagination. At least that’s what most people would say. I’d say she’s confident. She makes decisions and offers opinions without hesitation. She reviews a picture in a book, ignores the text beneath and tells a story of exactly what she believes the characters are doing. She always has a decision, a direction and an opinion of what everyone should do or not do. And, at only 4 years old, I can see her starting to lead the entire family. She’s reminding me how important confidence can be, how persuasive it can be and how intoxicating it is. I should have learned all this from dating. I remember being young and picking up my date. The first couple of dates I always had a plan of what we were doing. After you get comfortable, it began the dance of “What do you want to do?” answered with “I don’t care, what do you want to do?” and the decisions lumbered along. It happens all the time; people create indeciNot so fast – Initially, the week ending June 16 looked to be the lowest week of unemployment benefit applications in quite some time – until the Labor Department revised the figure. 389,000 Americans filed claims during the seven-day period.-cnn.money.com.
sion and generally defer things. So when you see people that know what they want and create a path to it, it is intoxicating. They attract others, they become leaders and they find success. I thought about this during a client meeting, too. It seems in a service business each relationship is different and requires a unique and custom approach. However, having a basic system or process for that unique approach creates confidence – confidence from you and confidence in you for your customer. If you don’t have a basic process for your custom approach, you meander around with indecision and eventually their belief in your ability wanes. Confidence, after all, isn’t about knowing all the answers; it’s knowing how to answer all the questions.

Central Indiana housing market shows improvement Commentary by Jim Litten The Central Indiana housing market continues to show improvement as we move further into the second quarter. Through the first five months of the year, 10,666 homes pended – an increase of 13.2 percent – compared to the same time period last year in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. In May 2012, pended home sales rose to 2,330 – an increase of 7 percent compared to May 2011. In Hamilton County, the housing market is gradually improving, but even within the same county, fluctuations do occur. • Through the first five months of the year, 2,236 pended in Hamilton County, which is an increase of 238 homes compared to the same time period last year. • Despite increases in home sales in surrounding cities, in Fishers, 48 homes pended in May 2012 – a decrease of eight homes compared to May 2011. • Bargain hunters and sellers are both faring well with competitive pricing. In Fishers, the average sales price for a home in May 2012 was $175,120 – a slight increase of $984 compared to May 2011. • Inventory is tightening. In May 2012,
there were 215 homes on the market, which is 17 fewer homes compared to May 2011. • The big picture in Fishers looks encouraging. Through the first five months of this year, 178 homes closed, which is an increase of 2.3 percent compared to the same time period last year. The average sales price of those closed homes rose to $172,613 – up $3,093 year-to-date. • We remain cautiously optimistic as we enter the second half of the year. Interest rates remain at historic lows, and there are plenty of affordable houses on the market. Now is the time to buy for homeowners looking to make their dollars go further.

The data tells a story
Commentary by CJ McClanahan
One of my first clients sold farm equipment throughout central Indiana. During one of our first meetings, I asked him where he made the most money. He was 100 percent certain that almost all of his profit came from selling the big machines. This business had focused on the sale of these machines for 40-plus years and won many national sales contests. After reviewing his financial results for a three-year period, I soon realized that nearly all of his profit came from servicing equipment. He made very little profit from machine sales. The data always tells a compelling story if you pay attention. Unfortunately, very few people have the patience to analyze the data and would rather rely on their “gut,” which delivers a quicker response. The problem is that this response is driven by emotion and is often incorrect. Trusting your immediate emotionally driven instincts is acceptable, in fact even preferable, if you are being chased by a bear in the wilderness or getting your family in the basement if a tornado is coming down your street. However, in business, I’d advise you to start paying close attention to the data. If you don’t, you may get lucky every now and then and hit a home run, but I promise you won’t make it to the World Series. Serious, sustained busi-
ness success is built on a foundation of sound information. If you doubt me, you probably just landed a big deal because your neighbor was related to the CFO of a great prospect. I wouldn’t recommend building a business model around the relatives of the people in your cul-de-sac. Instead, you need to pay attention to a handful of key performance indicators (KPI’s) that drive every business in the world. Let’s start with marketing, which I define as anything you do to get a prospect interested in your product/service. You can measure the success of your marketing by tracking a handful of KPI’s. First, how many prospects did you attract? Second, how many of those prospects were a good fit for your product/service? Lastly, how much did it cost to generate each qualified prospect? Track your marketing, sales, service and financial KPI’s on a monthly basis, and you will instantly understand the health of your business. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Gardeners grow up with vines Commentary by Holly Lindzy
commonly planted hyacinth bean vine, which is stunning from flower to fruit – big leafy stems of purple flowers followed by shiny purple seed pods in the fall – it’s so great I almost hate to share my secret about it. I’ve also planted morning glories with moonflower to have flowers all hours of the day. They’re a cinch to grow and fun to watch bloom, as the huge white moonflower opens at the same time every evening. No place for a vine to climb? I doubt that! A simple trellis will suffice or bamboo stakes found in any garden center and some twine does the trick for a natural look. You can even grow your vines up tall sunflowers! No excuses! Have some fun with your challenging spaces and grow up this season. It’s not too late – there’s a long summer ahead of us. And maybe giggle like a kid doing it. Happy climbing!
Gardening can be a challenge regardless of your living situation. Farmers battle droughts, suburbanites combat rocky soils and apartment dwellers are space challenged. It can be frustrating, indeed but I have two words for you . . . grow up! Literally – I’m talking about growing vines! Living in an old house in town, I’m space challenged. Definitely the highlight of the house is the spacious front porch – a dream to sit on in the rain but no place to dig up a garden bed. Obviously. Luckily, I’ve always been fond of container gardening. The soil is just right, they’re easy to water and you can move them around to highlight something in particular. And I have railing and posts that scream for scrambling vines, so I stick a few seeds in the containers on my porch to cover them. It’s always a show stopper. They’re easy enough to grow but hard to find in the nurseries, so it just makes seed shopping all the more fun. My absolute favorite? The un-

New master bath with custom closet Commentary by Larry Greene Original bathroom: This home is located in the Woodacre subdivision on the west side of Indianapolis. The homeowners built the house in 1990 and now that they are empty nesters, they are slowly remodeling the whole house to get it ready for eventual sale. They had already remodeled the kitchen so the master bath was next. New skeek tub: The owners commented, "The bathroom had a huge garden tub, and I like the sleek look of the new one. After having a garden tub for years, I wanted something different. The glass block behind the tub was a last minute change. I was having trouble finding a window treatment that I liked, and my designer suggested the glass block. We did not choose the most popular style. We did not have to be too concerned with the amount of light the glass block let in because we also have a skylight. We were able to choose the glass style even though it did not let in as much light as other styles. We also found that replacing the windows and getting new window treatments was actually going to cost more than the glass block." Husband & wife decision making: The owners worked together with the design team on the selection of the materials. "My husband was in charge of the shower and I focused on the vanity areas. I wanted the vanity tops to be granite, but
I did not want them to look like a kitchen, so that led me to my color choice. The plumbing fixtures were chosen to be sleek and modern."
the weller life ®
begINS here. New closet space: The homeowners noted, "My favorite part of the remodel is the closet. The old one had a loft that felt very dark and closed. Now the closet is bright and new, and I can see everything. We have many more shelves and the space has been opened up. It helped me organize my things."
