Nobody LOVES Helping You Save Money Like We Do!

By Taylor Dixon taylor@youarecurrent.com The Woofstock Survivor 5K and dog walk, presented by the Humane Society for Hamilton County, is set for 8 FUNDRAISER a.m. Aug. 13 at Four Day Ray Brewing, 11671 Lantern Rd., Fishers. Registration and check-in is from 6 to 7:30 a.m. The race is open to all members of the family, including dogs if they are on a leash or in a stroller. The race is a fundraiser for the Humane Society’s Survivor Program that provides lifesaving medical care for animals in need. The goal is to raise $45,000, which will provide care for 167 animals. “The number of animals needing our help through the Survivor Program is growing every year,” said Megan Davis, director of Training and Communications for the Humane Society of Hamilton County. “Our transfers and rescues from euthanasia from last year to this year has doubled. So, lifesaving work is really what the bottom line is for this event.” Online registration is open until the week

of the event. The fee is $45 through July 21, after which it increases to $55 until the morning of the race. All participants will receive a finishing medal and shirt. A virtual option is also available. For virtual participants, shirts and medals will be mailed or can be picked up at the Humane Society for Hamilton County. Prizes will be awarded to the top donators. If a company or organization raises more than $500, it will be promoted on social media by the Humane Society. The person who raises the most overall will have the opportunity for their dog to become the face of next year’s Woofstock.

She enjoyed seeing her daughters thrive in the championship. “I know that they were under a lot of pressure, and it was great to see how they didn’t get rattled, even though there’s cameras and lights and (a) big crowd,” she said. “It was thrilling to see when they had big success. They’re just so cohesive that no matter what was the buzz going on around them, they had their goal in mind and it was neat to see them actually follow through and be able to accomplish that.”

Fishers resident co-launches business to help people with Alzheimer’s, dementia By Taylor Dixon taylor@youarecurrent.com What started out as a school project has become a business helping people living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Fishers resident Luke Gilligan worked in nursing homes and care facilities throughout high school, so he saw the impact Alzheimer’s and dementia had on patients and their caregivers. That is why when given the opportunity in an entrepreneurship class, Gilligan, an entrepreneurship major at Grove City College in Pennsylvania, wanted to create something that would help to those with the disease. Gilligan said it broke his heart to often see patients with dementia neglected or “treated like children” in care facilities. So, he and a class partner created a business, Resense, that assembles memory boxes for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia. “Because these individuals, they’re our grandparents, they are our parents and they are our friends and they taught us everything we know,” Gilligan said. “And so, we need to give that support and love right back to them and so I feel like this box is the perfect way to do that.” The class is also where he met his now business partner Ethan David, an entrepreneurship and religious studies major from Mars, Penn. The pair, with the help of the Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Grove City College, launched their brand Resense. Gilligan and David’s mission was to make memory boxes intended to help with brain health. The memory boxes have four different tools to stimulate senses that help with memory recall.

The boxes include a pop-it rubber fidget toy, Sudoku puzzles, adult coloring pages, word searches, a deck of cards, a tube of lotion and a card with links to Spotify and YouTube playlists with hits from the ’50s through the ’80s, so every patient can find music they grew up with. While creating the boxes, Gilligan and David conducted 70 interviews with professionals in the field to determine what they should put in their boxes. The puzzles and fidget toy allows patients to activate their tactile senses and abilities. The word searches, Sudoku and coloring pages keep their brains active, and the lotion is for aroma therapy and provides a way for caretakers to connect with patients. “Another one of our avenues for this is that we want to provide a toolkit for the caregivers, for the activities directors, for the executive directors of communities, to use as a way of engaging with their residents and giving them something that is an engaging activity but also helpful to their brain health and giving them something that they enjoy,” David said. Gilligan said the boxes provide an outlet for caregivers to easily connect with patients. “Why I really think it’s a necessary item is, it’s a way to

automatically have a relationship with a stranger or your client because you can just bring this box and sit down and say, Hey, let’s start playing with these items,’” Gilligan said. David and Gilligan have entered their business in a couple of competitions across the U.S. At e-Fest 2022 at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minn., the entrepreneurs came in fifth, winning $10,000 to advance their business. While Resense has gotten business locally and across the U.S., Gilligan and David are looking to expand globally, specifically to Ukraine, where they hope to help people with Alzheimer’s and dementia and their caregivers. Gilligan and David are partnering with The Marshal Fund Ministries, a company that is helping elderly people in Ukraine, to help kickstart their new Memory Box 2.0 and get it sent out to people in need in Ukraine. They also have commissioned Ukrainian artists to design the new coloring pages in the box and design T-shirts. For every two shirts sold, a box will be donated to someone in Ukraine living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

ESSAY

HUMOR

The last dance

Commentary by Terry Anker

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Nostalgia leads us to seek out occasions to reconnect with our past. Once great and vibrant rock stars roll out a “final” tour, likely designed to pay for their most recent divorce. The 74-year-old bad boy singer is greeted with cheers from his balding and Rubenesque audience, mixed with a few hipsters hoping to score a T-shirt to wear ironically while working as a barista and finishing their degree in somethingwe’ve-never-heard-of studies. The crowd is appreciative but cannot focus on the performance, instead noting “how good he looks for his age” with every new song. The youngsters in the crowd find themselves singing along to tunes they recognize from recent auto commercials, thinking that they were simple jingles rather than once-groundbreaking hit songs. It is all good fun, and it makes us feel like we are a part of some collective history. Locals of a certain age are quick to retell the story of the “last” show of the great Elvis Presley. Although it took place almost 45 years ago to the day, there is a bit of shared infamy in having attended in person. Still, if we are always looking back, are we missing something in the future? Vampires and rock stars indulge in any number of troublesome acts to hang onto youth. But should they? If given the chance, would we exchange our past for someone else’s future? If we imagine that we could improve on the likely trajectory of the future, we might assume perhaps. If we knew that we’d lose our own accumulated joy and sorrow and be doomed to live the likely pedestrian life of another, perhaps not. Are we defined more by our history or by our future? If the latter, how much time are we dedicating to thinking about where we are going?

Friends, it’s done. My life as a dance mom has finally ended, and I think it was only fitting that I said my goodbyes in Galveston, Texas. Galveston, for those of you not familiar, is a barrier island down the road from Houston. It’s a beach town that feels like it’s seen better days, with a graffitied sea wall that abuts a fairly busy five-lane highway. Bottle caps and plastic detritus wash up along the shore with the expected seaweed, dead fish and broken shells. Summer ambient temperatures consistently run in the triple digits. Despite its rundown appearance, though, Galveston has a lot to offer. It has beautiful sunrises and bountiful waterfowl, some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet and an impressive array of delicious Mexican and barbecue eateries. Can y’all say, “smoked brisket taco?” Turns out, the competitive dance world is actually a lot like Galveston — a bit gritty on the surface but absolutely worth a visit. In the last nine years, my daughter has experienced hip injuries and girl drama and body image issues and studio “politics,” set amid a backdrop of screaming mothers, skimpy costumes and exorbitant entry fees. Despite all that, or maybe because of it, she has made friends for life, developed resilience and confidence, and created the type of memories that can only come from spending 20 bucks on a Galveston ghost tour with — surprise, surprise — no ghosts. I, of course, have lived vicariously through her, which makes this final dance trip such a bittersweet moment. My jazz-handing, piqué-turning baby is done, and so is my time as a dance mom. Peace out.

Actor fighting with words of truth Editor, Seeing and hearing Matthew McConaughey’s impassioned address to the press in the White House briefing room, I began thinking about Hollywood actors who fought as heroes in World War II: Paul Newman, Audie Murphy, Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable among them. They fought with weapons aboard planes, ships and submarines. Audrey Hepburn and Josephine Baker served in the resistance in Europe. All these years later, we have an actor fighting with words of truth – against weapons. Patsy Bares, Carmel

Editor, I don’t usually comment about things that I read, but (Terry Anker’s June 21 essay) “False Alarms” commentary struck a chord. Your last sentence wondering if we will miss a genuine warning is one that I have asked myself and others repeatedly the last five to six years. Indeed, we have missed it. The alarm bells have been deafening, and sadly, those who may be in a position to respond to them instead have chosen to angrily shout at and demean those who don’t agree with their version of freedom and democracy. It’s all conspiracy, guns and personal freedom except for women’s choices, LGBT and immigrants. At 71 years old, never did I dream that I might live through the destruction of the country that my grandfather, father and uncle risked their lives to defend. We have teetered on the abyss of darkness, and even such a heinous act as shooting a third-grader in the face cannot unite us. We have gone over. America has gone to war with itself. The only question is, who will survive? Don Schriber, Noblesville

That was not the original plan, but turns out we were not invited to the cookout around the corner. Here is a statistic reported by the people who make propane tanks: In total, 69.3 percent of men versus 67 percent of women prefer gas grills over charcoal grills. What could possibly account for this vast taste variance of 2.3 percent between men and women? I have always accepted the statistical difference between the sexes when it comes to the love of shoes, the comic genius of “The Three Stooges” and professional wrestling. Those disparities were understandable, but the gender gap in the preference of gas versus charcoal grills is a mystery. Scientists at one of the many genome labs should take the time to see if there is, indeed, an actual gene to explain this. They have already found one each for selfishness, social skills and altruism, but not a single study has been dedicated to the charcoal/gas grills discrepancy. You laugh (I hope), but these are your tax dollars squandered by the government — your money up in smoke, especially if you prefer charcoal. I did some research on my own block to see if the results meshed with typical American neighborhoods. I knocked on the first door. “Hi, Mark, I’m taking a little survey. Do you prefer a charcoal or a gas grill?” “Well, that’s kind of a touchy question in

this house. I prefer gas, but Judy likes coals. I’d rather not go on the record with this. Our kids are still in school, and we belong to a very conservative church. Instead, it would be safer to tell you about our sex lives or how much debt we are in.” I tried another house. “Norman, I just dropped over to find out whether it makes any difference to you whether you fire up your grill with gas or charcoal.” “It mattered a lot to the first Mrs. Collingwood. That’s why there’s a second Mrs. Collingwood. Things were fine for several years, but then my new wife read something in Prevention magazine and started asking me a lot of health and safety questions about my chosen cooking method. I hate being grilled about grilling, so I purchased a brand-new Weber that meets my wife’s new barbequing preference. It’s cheaper than getting a third Mrs. Collingwood.” One final thing: According to most propane manufacturers, 36 percent of grillers don’t know they’re out of propane gas until they actually are. Sorry, I don’t have a clever ending to this column, but it doesn’t really matter. Only 26 percent of my readers know that my last line is supposed to be funny. That’s because 74 percent don’t get that far.

FFD receives grant from Indiana Dept. of Health By Will Riddell will@youarecurrent.com The Fishers Fire Dept. recently received a $250,000 grant from the Indiana Dept. of Health through its PUBLIC SAFETY Indiana Health Issues and Challenges Grant program. According to the IDH, grant recipients must use the funds to develop services to address issues such as tobacco use, food insecurity/obesity, lead exposure, hepatitis C, chronic disease such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma and cancer, and public health prevention programs. Funds from the grant will be used to hire a licensed clinical social worker who will work with the FFD’s We Care Community Paramedicine program and the Fishers Health Dept. to provide temporary counselling and mental health care. According to the FFD, the licensed clinical social worker will work with multiple groups and individuals across Fishers that

are involved in health care. These include community paramedics, public health nurses and a community risk reduction specialist. “The Fishers Health Department and Fire and Emergency Services partnership, through the support of this grant funding, will serve to fill a gap in care between emergency response and preventative care,” Fishers Public Health Director Monica Heltz stated. More than 145 organizations were granted funds this year. Priority was given to applicants that demonstrated high need and high impact in their grant proposals, according to the FFD. The FFD has served the community of Fishers since 1955 and employs more than 130 full-time personnel. More on the Health Issues and Challenges Grant can be found at in.gov/health/ grant-opportunities/healthissuesandchallengesgrant/.

New bakery opens in Noblesville By Anna Skinner anna@youarecurrent.com A family-owned bakery and café that recently opened is quickly becoming popular in the Noblesville community. NEW BIZ Debbie’s Daughters, on the ground floor of 12 Stars Media, 1236 Conner St., Noblesville, has sold homemade bakery items since 2020. The bakery recently opened its June 1 storefront and is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The bakery is named after Debbie Downs, who had 12 children — five daughters and seven sons. Jessica Walls, one of Downs’ daughters, began baking bread for people in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Everyone was calling us because they couldn’t find bread, and they said, ‘If you make us bread, we will pay you,’” Jessica said. “It started there but the dream was always to open a bakery and restaurant.” Jessica’s husband, Rocky Walls, who owns 12 Stars Media, said he bought the building knowing he and Jessica would someday open a bakery. 12 Stars Media launched in 2018. The Fishers couple began selling bakery

items from home in 2020. They opened a Debbie’s Daughters booth at the Noblesville Farmers Market in 2021. “The online ordering and farmers market was like, ‘Hey, Noblesville community, do you want this? Would you buy bread from us every week?’” Rocky said. The answer was yes. “It kind of shocked us,” Jessica said. “The first week we made some things and took them to the market, and by the end of the market, we had quadrupled what we took to the first market.” Menu items include coffee, cold brew, lemonade, espresso drinks such as lattes and Americanos and a bakery counter that rotates with fresh bakery items. Rocky said in the next few weeks, he wants to sell breakfast and lunch sandwiches as well. The bakery is in a 142-year-old building with wood tones and a fireplace. “It’s really important to us that people feel as cozy and welcome here as possible,” Rocky said. “It’s deliberate this is on the first floor of what used to be — a long, long time ago — a home. We try to keep as much of that feeling as possible.” For more, visit debbiesdaughters.com.

Indy Opera’s event features lobster bake By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Lobsta Bakes of Maine started 25 years ago with a love story when a Maine lobster fisherman met FUNDRAISER and married a vacationer from Cincinnati. That lobster fisherman, Kevin Smith, stayed in Cincinnati to start Lobsta Bakes. “We have been bringing in live lobster from Maine and steaming them on your doorstep ever since the wedding,” said Jim Radcliffe, catering sales manager for Lobsta Bakes. Lobsta Bakes will help bring an authentic New England lobster fest to Indianapolis Opera’s 12th annual fundraiser, Lobster Palooza. The event will return from 5 to 9 p.m. July 17 to Daniel’s Family Vineyard and Winery in McCordsville. “We bring it all and use our custom-built steam cookers on-site to prepare the freshest lobster, delivered to us the day after catch, and served up with corn, potatoes, coleslaw, mussels, breads and drawn butter,” Radcliffe said. “We have seafood appetizers that go well with the Lobsta Bakes that include crab cakes, shrimp cocktail, clam chowder and oysters on the half shell.” Radcliffe said staff will stay on-site this year and serve. In the past, a caterer handled the serving. “We will give lobster-picking demonstrations and go tableside to assist anyone that may want additional help,” he said. However, Radcliffe said the Lobster Palooza crowd typically doesn’t need much instruction. “We do about 50 to 70 Lobsta Bakes in a normal summer and typically travel within a 150-mile radius from the shop,” Radcliffe said. Smith sold the company to Phil and Emma Jones earlier this year. “Kevin is up in Maine with his wife Ann making sure we always have lobsters,” Radcliffe said. “He is back up working lobster boats. He’ll be making guest appearances (for Lobsta Bakes).” Ellinger Riggs Insurance, based in Noblesville, is in its fourth year as a sponsor

of the event. Rob Ellinger, a Fishers resident, is the president of the agency. “We think supporting the arts is important,” Ellinger said. “We think it’s great for us to be involved in. This shows a different side of opera. A lot of people think of opera as a black-tie (event). This is a more casual event, and how often do we get fresh lobster in Indiana, right? It’s a fun event and a great atmosphere.” Other event sponsors include Daniel’s Vineyard, Current Publishing, National Bank of Indianapolis and Merrill: J.K. Blackburn & Associates/Searles Akers Wealth Management Group. This is the second year the event will be held at Daniel’s Vineyard. It was previously held outside of the Basile Opera Center in Indianapolis. “We love connecting with the beautiful

location of Daniel’s and the Geist (Reservoir) area,” said Indy Opera General Director David Starkey, who lives in McCordsville. “This uniqueness of having a lobster bake is not your typical thing you have in Indiana. It’s top shelf all the way. It’s a party. It’s bringing new and unique things together. The opera is all about bringing new and different things together.” A cocktail hour is set for 5 to 6 p.m., followed by the lobster dinner from 6 to 7 p.m. Besides Daniel’s wines, Taxman Brewery, Tito’s Vodka and Still Moon specialty drinks also will be available. From 7 to 9 p.m., the Drew Martini band will perform music for dancing. Tickets are $200. The deadline for ticket orders is July 8. For more, visit indyopera. org.

Un5gettable set for Feinstein’s By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Un5gettable started as five friends from Kokomo having fun performing. “We started 20 years ago in COMEDY our late teens and early 20s,” Carmel resident Joe Cameron said. “We were friends first. We decided to do a couple performances as a gag. We went our separate ways to live life.” In 2014, they decided to perform some original comedy songs. “We haven’t stopped writing, recording and performing since then,” Cameron said. “It’s been fun and unexpected to do this with my friends.” Actors Theatre of Indiana Live will present Un5gettable at 7:30 p.m. July 15 at Feinstein’s Cabaret at the Hotel Carmichael in Carmel. Cameron said the group will perform six shows at Indy Fringe later this summer. Two of the members live out of state, so they only do a few live performances a year. “We do video and music content,” said Cameron, who moved to Carmel from Chicago in 2021.

Cameron said he and Zach Harris do most of the writing. There have been times when four members have written together. Cameron said the five vocalists met through Civic Theatre or high school show choir. Brendan Hawkins lives in Fishers and Ryan Richards is in the process of moving from Kokomo to Carmel. Kyle Cothern lives in Chicago and Harris is in Los Angeles. “The show will be a 90-minute break from the real world where we are going to sing about ridiculous scenarios in an extremely serious manner,” Cameron said. The group released an album, “I Am Okay,” in May. For more, visit un5gettable.com.

What’s in a name? Commentary by Curtis Honeycutt Have you ever met a married couple who start to resemble each other over a period of time? Or how about someone who looks like their GRAMMAR GUY pet? While these pairings are visually fitting, have you ever met a person whose name suits them perfectly? An aptronym (or aptonym or euonym) is a name that fits the description or appearance of the person to which it belongs. This can be with a fictional character or a real-life person. For instance, let’s suppose I opened a ham-focused restaurant that shows off a special carving technique I perfected using a knife pre-soaked in a vat of hot honey. In this case, my name “Curtis Honeycutt” would be an aptronym. Here are a few real examples of people with aptronyms. The first person I think of whose name fits them perfectly is Usain Bolt. Perhaps the greatest sprinter of all time, Jamaican-born Bolt still holds the record for the fastest 100-meter dash, with a time of

9.58 seconds back in 2009. Do you play poker? One of the most successful players in the World Series of Poker series is Chris Moneymaker. He won the tournament in 2003, pocketing a prize of $2.5 million. A moneymaker, indeed. To round out some more real-life aptronym examples, consider meteorologist Amy Freeze, father and son pro baseball multitime all-stars Cecil and Prince Fielder, poet William Wordsworth, neurologist Russell Brain and master sommelier Emily Wines. The opposite of an aptronym is an inaptronym, a name that defies its owner’s character or career choice. My favorite inaptronym belongs to ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard. Although the band is known for their long beards, Beard is the only member of ZZ Top who doesn’t have a beard. What’s in a name? Sometimes, it’s everything.
