Fishers Town Council update What happened: The council approved an ordinance regarding the municipality’s parking schedule.

Hill

What it means: This ordinance amendment tidies up parking rules on Conner Creek Drive, a road that connects to Allisonville Road and 116th Street. It clarifies that there is no parking on one side of the street and is “clearly enforceable,” according to Jeff Hill, Director of Engineering.

What’s next: The ordinance amendment had first, second and third readings at the meeting and was approved, so it will not be coming back for further consideration.

What happened: The council approved a request that awarded a construction contract for road resurfacing. What it means: Five bids came in for a Road Resurface Contract for several thoroughfares in Fishers. Some of those roads include Mollenkopf Road between 96th Street and 106th Street, a piece of 96th Street and the section of 113th Street between Olio Road and Florida Road, according to a council action form. Cash for the project comes from the Cumulative Capital Development fund. The project will cost $463,500, which is under budget.

What’s next: Work is slated for completion before or in mid November.

What happened: The council approved a construction contract for the 2013 Intersection Reconstruction Program. What it means: Two new roundabouts on 106th Street were up for approval through the contract. According to a council action form, one is planned at 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard, while a second is at 106th Street and Geist Road. The projected expenditure for the projects is $2,528,954.72. Two different bonds will pay for each roundabout individually.

What’s next: Even with the contract awarded to Rieth-Riley, construction is not planned to start until spring 2014.

What happened: The 2014 budget was discussed in the work session. What it means: Town Manager Scott Fadness briefed the council members on next year’s proposed budget. Fadness told the council that the overall budget is slated to see a 12 percent increase. The 911 budget was also a talking point, as well as new or additional staff members that may be added.

What’s next: Briefings on the budget will continue before it officially goes before the council.

Bouwkamp cuts competition

By Amy Moshier • news@currentinfishers.com

Although fencing is an individual sport, Cat Bouwkamp, 17, loves the team aspect of it just as much. She people in the news is ranked 6th in the world for IWAS Category A Women’s Saber Wheelchair fencing. Bouwkamp won the bronze medal in the Women’s Category A saber fencing competition at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary on Aug. 9. “It was the best result I’ve ever achieved at a World Championship. I was there with my whole team so it was a great team building experience. I loved it,” Bouwkamp, a junior at Fishers High School, said. “Even though it’s an individual sport, you still grow together as a team,” she said. The US Wheelchair Fencing team is made up of three girls and six boys. Her dedication to this unique sport is obvious. Bouwkamp has been competing on a national level since age 10 and an international level since age 13. Her parents love to watch her compete, but even after all of these years, they still get nervous for their daughter. “There is a familiar feeling to watching the competitions even at high level competitions,” Alan Bouwkamp, her father, said. “On the other hand, each bout is nerve – wracking and hard to watch. I try to not to be a distraction, but at the

Luke Bielawski teed off across the nation to help students, and his journey isn’t over By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com Fishers resident Luke Bielawski crushed the ball across a course that offered hazards seasoned golfers seldom face, and he did it for charity. Bielawski set out on a 96-day trip, dubbed From Tee to Shining Tee, across the American countryside to raise scholarship money for students at Providence Cristo Rey High School, a college-preparatory high school in Indianapolis. His journey teed off at Ventura Beach in California and closed with a biodegradable ball launched into the Atlantic Ocean from the Ocean Course at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina. In between, the golfer and law student sent the ball flying through the Mojave Desert, along a road commonly used by cartel drug runners called Smuggler’s Lane and across the Mississippi River. Amidst the challenges of the 2,947-mile quest to raise $100,000 for the local school, his beliefs in the kindness of people were reaffirmed, making life-long friends along the way and chatting with a former president of the United States.

A great adventure

Bielawski got the idea for the adventure that teed off on May 7 and closed Aug. 10 watching “Forrest Gump,” which many will remember featured scenes of the titular character running across the United States. The golfer combined the idea with his long-

present passion for service to others and admiration for Providence Cristo Rey, a school he heard about in the media and from local public servants like Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. So, four grown men sharing a camper – a film producer, cameraman, driver and Bielawski – took off across the country to whack a golf ball eastward. Trapped in that camper for more than three months, one of the biggest challenges for Bielawski was keeping the crew’s morale up as they moved across the American south. Monotony, discomfort in tight quarters and no escape became a reality until the last ball was hit into the Atlantic. “I kept telling them, and I kept telling myself, in a month we’ll be back,” he said. “So, embrace the challenge. Embrace the uncomfortableness. That’s why they call it an adventure, and that’s why few people do it.” But along the way, people and fortuitous situations broke up the monotony of the trip.

Los Angeles

California – Bielawski’s adventure teed off at Ventura Beach on May 7.

The NRH20 Water Park in the Dallas/Fort Worth area invited the From Tee to Shining Tee crew to enjoy the facility and shoot some promotional photos.

The landscape would change several times as Bielawski golfed from region to region, from rocky roads to lush areas in Texas. For more photos from Luke’s journey visit currentinfishers.com (Submitted photos)

Oh, the people you’ll meet

Stops on the trip raised some of the crew member’s spirits. Bielawski spoke to students at San Miguel High School, another Cristo Rey school, in Tucson, Ariz. Kevin Reem, a 57-year-old film producer from Burbank, Calif., was documenting the adventure and said that stop reminded them why they were going through the ordeal – it was for the kids. “It (thinking about the goal) keeps you going,” he said. “It gets you through.” He said southern, or southwestern, hospitality truly exists. When the crew had a tire blow out, a New Mexico family sheltered and fed them, and Bielawski said they’re now family friends. Farther down the golf trail, they met two men, who dubbed themselves the Christ Cowboys, preparing for their own cross country trip on horseback to spread the good word. They took a pit stop in Dallas to meet with President George W. Bush. Bielawski said Bush is a down-to-earth person who wants to know something about you and whose conversations always come back to family.

“They (George and Laura Bush) still have a deep passion to help other people,” he said. He said before he left he had experience with people in small towns and believed country folk were family oriented and hardworking. “It was something I always believed, but just sort of reaffirmed and solidified my belief that there are great people out in the country, and the United States in general,” Bielawski said. “People just want to help out.”

The next step

The crew surpassed the halfway mark in terms of fundraising. The Get On The Green Foundation, the nonprofit entity over From Tee to Shining Tee, is still accepting donations. Golfers can sign up or consider sponsorships for the 2013 Get On The Green Golf South Carolina – Scramble at Eagle Creek Bielawski sent a Golf Club Sept. 16 at www. biodegradable ball getonthegreen.org. into the Atlantic Ocean at the Ocean For more information on Course at Kiawah Providence Cristo Rey High Island Golf Resort.

FROM THE BACKSHOP This arts festival benefits our region

Minimum wager It is our position that fast food workers striking in favor of wage increases should take an Economics 101 class. According to a Ball State University study released in April, Indiana’s average personal income lags more than a decade behind the income levels enjoyed by the nation as a whole. So why shouldn’t minimum wage workers protest for higher wages? Protesting is certainly within their first amendment rights. Is it within their right to request a $15 an hour wage for cashier and fry cook positions once considered feeder jobs into the world of paid employment for teenagers and those who chose not to pursue higher education? Granted, dealing with the public requires a great deal of patience and keeping up with the quick pace of restaurant life can be exhausting. However, the very virtues such as low cost meals that motivate the hurried, hungry public to take a spin through the drive-thru on their way home from work would soon disappear if employers nearly doubled the wages of its restaurant staff. Perhaps the protesters are waging their own plight for higher wages on behalf of all underpaid hourly workers regardless if the task is flipping burgers or emptying bedpans. Someone deserves a break – the question is, just who?

Where books really count Commentary by Terry Anker A week from today, the Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation will host a roundtable discussion moderated by Inside Indiana Business host and founder, Gerry Dick, on the matter of the role of libraries in entrepreneurship and business success. Along with Matt Frey, owner of Bub’s Burgers & Ice Cream and Bub’s Café, Mickey Maurer, chairman of IBJ Media Corp., IBJ columnist, and author of “10 Essential Principles of Entrepreneurship You Never Learned in School,” and Mo Merhoff, Carmel Chamber of Commerce president, I will answer questions and posit thoughts on the role of a library in modern times. It is likely to come as no surprise that I am counted among the believers in the role of the humanities to help us understand and cling to one another in spite (or perhaps because) of the dehumanizing tumult that surrounds us almost everywhere in almost every way. There is nothing that brings us closer to empathy for the life of another more than literature. In the fear

of Anne Frank, the adventure of Jack London’s Buck and the tragedy of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, we are able to find new perspective. But libraries do far more. They provide access to thinking – and to thinkers. In a world wide web, they are a crucial entrée, at once rousing a thirst for knowledge and quenching it. Once imagined to be piles of dusty old books, modern libraries, through a myriad of programs, are intended to inspire, inform and initiate. Join us from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Sept. 17 in the Program Room at the Carmel Clay Public Library, 4th Ave. SE, Carmel. Call the Foundation Office at 8143905 for more info. Registration is not required for the free event. Besides, they provide the bagels and coffee and how can that not be a good thing?! Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

It’s nearly that time of year again. The Carmel International Arts Festival, entering its 16th year, will run Sept. 28 and 29 in the Arts & Design District. This is an event for everyone, and dare we state here, well worth your time. Current is proud to be sponsoring it for the sixth year, and we’re eager, as many of you are, to see what Executive Director Rosemary Waters and her team of volunteers has cooked up for attendees. Long ago, this transitioned from a “just Carmel event” to one for the entire region - if not multiple states beyond. We know from our independent marketplace research that the arts – all of them – are of strong interest to our readership, and it is for that reason that we’re bringing the festival to your attention. There will be more than 125 juried artists displaying wares in watercolor, oil, 2D, jewelry, photography, 3D, wood, sculpture and pottery, among other mediums. It’s high-end work by scores of professionals – and, thankfully, you won’t find sand art or finger-painting works, although there will be activities for “young artists.” This festival has been and still is free to attend, and last year more than 30,000 folks partook of the exhibits, shopping and diverse entertainment. There is plenty of free parking, notably in the parking garage at the Indiana Design Center, one and a half blocks south of the festival on South Range Line Road, and at Carmel High School, from which a shuttle will operate. In addition, visitors may park at Old Town Shoppes, Main Street and Range Line Road, or at the Lions Club lot just east of Range Line Road on the south side of Main Street. Truly, this event has something for everybody. Please mark your calendars and plan to take in this phenomenal event. For more information, visit www.carmelartsfestival.org.

Crying over the Caravan

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

I may have an unhealthy relationship with my automobile. My husband called yesterday to tell me that he had run Mini-Van humor by Car Max, and that if they had offered him just a few hundred dollars more, he would have sold her on the spot. I almost started crying. Crying! Over a car. What’s the matter with me? She is, after all, a 2006 Dodge Caravan with no working A/C, side doors, or cup holders. She surpassed 100,000 miles this summer on a road trip that required a trip to Clark Tire to fix what we thought was a busted transmission, but turned out to be just a leaky water pump. She has a large dent on the driver’s side door courtesy of our stupid garage, which rudely attacked me two Octobers ago as I was pulling in. Perhaps you’ve seen me driving about town with a magnetic band-aid covering the “boo-boo”? The point is she’s a piece of crap, and I should be excited about getting rid of her rather than weepy at the thought of selling her off for death by dis-part-ment. But here’s the thing. We’ve been through a lot together, Mini-Van and I. I’ve driven her to two NCAA Final Fours, decorating her with enough red and black paint to embarrass my teenager and make seeing out the windows slightly challenging. She’s hauled my family all over the state of Indiana, to the Rocky Mountains and the Atlan-

tic Ocean, and enough times on the I-65 corridor from Chicago to Montgomery that we know exactly which gas stations to avoid for their unsanitary bathrooms. This is also the car that made one of the most memorable ER runs in Wilson family history [see Archives, May 12, 2009, for a thrilling account]. On a smaller scale, my kids have probably spent more time in this van than in any other vehicle apart from her predecessor, Big Red, may she rest in peace. Carpooling to soccer, swimming, volleyball, cross country, gymnastics, dance, tennis, track, hurling (not really, just wanted to see if you were paying attention) and basketball has filled a big portion of their day-to-day lives. Honestly, they’ve spilled more milk, soda and Gatorade in Mini-Van than they have at our kitchen table, attestable by the slight smell of rot that emanates from the cloth-interior on especially hot days. Mini-Van is not just our mode of transportation. She is our historian. Every stain, scratch and unidentifiable food glob tells a story of my family. So, yeah, when I finally have to part with her, I’m going to bawl like a little girl. Maybe it’s unhealthy, but it’s the way I feel. I love you, MiniVan! Peace out.

Milestone musicals, shows delight B&B season

By Nancy Edwards • news@currentinfishers.com

Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre will mark its 41st season in 2014 with four acclaimed musicals celebrating milestone antheatre niversaries. The theatre will also introduce a new musical, the fourth in a hilarious series of mishaps by recurrent, endearing characters that audiences have grown to love. Based on the books “Growing Up Lutheran,” and “Those Lutheran Ladies,” the latest musical, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our Basement,” is part of the “Church Basement Ladies” series, which follows the lives of several unique women who cook dinner for special events in the basement of their rural church. Eddie Curry, artistic director, casting director and actor for Beef & Boards, explained that this musical series is so popular because audiences can relate to the characters that remind them of church members they already know. “Especially the older folks who went to rural churches,” Curry said. “They gathered in the church for potluck dinners and whatnot.” Curry, who plays Pastor Gunderson in the series, said that characters like Mavis, a church lady whose husband loses yet another finger from a farming accident, keep attendees coming back for the next sequel in the series because they want to know what happens next for the character. “A Mighty Fortress Is Our Basement” is a reminiscent tale about memories from the church, as the property is about to be sold. “A lot of the fourth (series) is about the same characters remembering church activities throughout the year. People are coming back to the church for a final service,” Curry said. Another warm musical being shown for the first time at Beef & Boards next year has actually been a family favorite for generations. “Mary Poppins,” the story of a delightful nanny with a lot of wisdom and a little magic who teaches a family how to value one another again. The musical is part of the featured family show for the 2014 Season, which means the show has a special $10 discount for tickets for youth ages 3-15, according to Patricia Rettig, director of marketing and media relations. “The discount makes it easier to enjoy an outing together as a family,” she said. Other beloved musicals returning to Beef & Boards include “Oklahoma!” the first collaboration of Rodgers & Hammerstein. “You don’t get any more of an all-American musical than Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! It has been the foundation for Beef & Boards’ continued success, as it was the first show presented by our owner, Doug Stark,

THIS WEEK Always Patsy Cline – The Actors Theatre of Indiana will present this true tale of friendship is told through the letters CARMEL of Louise Segar, a devoted fan who befriended Patsy Cline at a Texas honky-tonk, on Thursday through Sunday from Sept. 13 through 29 at The Center for the Performing Arts.

Cost is $40 for adults with discounts for groups, seniors and students. For more information, call 843-3800 or visit www.actorstheatreofindiana.org.

when he first purchased the theatre with his business partner in 1980. It established the Broadway musical format which we still have today,” Rettig said. Those musicals celebrating anniversaries from their very first debut on stage include, “Lend Me A Tenor” and “Cats” at 25 years, “Fiddler on the Roof” with 50 years under its belt, and one of the longest-running shows, “Anything Goes,” which premiered 80 years ago. “Beef & Boards is one of only seven professional, Equity, year-round dinner theatres in the country, and it’s still going strong after 40 years,” Rettig said. “That’s a testament to the support this area provides to the performing arts. We are grateful for that support, and hope to continue to entertain for many years to come.” Currently playing at Beef & Boards is “Father of the Bride,” which many will recognize from the Spencer Tracy and Steve Martin films. It runs through Sept. 29. Visit www.beefandboards.com/fatherofthebride/ for a calendar and show times.

Birds of a feather flock together Commentary by Joe Drozda with Bob Bley It’s often said that birds of a feather flock together. This statement, credited to William Turner, a 16th century English naturalist, has become more than a mere observation. If redefined for tailgaters, means that people are more comfortable tailgating with others of similar socio-economic characteristics. Just look at a typical college stadium parking lot before a football game and you’ll see the natural groupings of tailgaters. Students will be obvious in certain areas, the alumni who donate to the school in other areas and the general public, who also appear to seek out friends to park besides. All will work well for tailgaters if Turner’s proverb is understood and its wisdom followed. Some tailgaters like to sit together quietly, drink in hand, and converse about what’s happened since they last met. Some gourmands feel the necessity to prepare huge quantities of food to amaze guests, neighbors, and the inevitable onlookers wandering through the festivities. Some people are not happy unless they have huge, ear-pounding, speakers blasting out music that appeals to no one but themselves. The ironic thing is that each group creates its own ambi-

ance and as long as they “flock together, no one ruffles a feather.” Here’s a great recipe submitted by Purdue University graduate Mary Ellen C. Van Buskirk. DEVILED EGGS Ingredients: one dozen large eggs, mayonnaise, horseradish mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt/pepper, black olives Preparation: Boil, cool, and peel the eggs. (Be advised that there are different schools of thought on how to hard boil eggs for the perfect deviled egg.) Cut the eggs in half lengthways and remove the yolks to a bowl. Place the whites on a tray and cool. Mash the yolks with a fork, adding mayo, mustard, and Worcestershire till the mixture gets soft like icing. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can add more horseradish, mustard, or Worcestershire sauce to suite your taste. Use a pastry tube to fill the whites with your mixture. For an accent, you can garnish each egg with a slice of black olive. (Get it? Black and Gold)

Men get varicose veins, too

Commentary by Jeffery Schoonover

As many as 45 percent of all men will experience varicose veins at some point in their lives. The number one cause of aesthetics varicose veins in both men and women is family history. If your mom or grandmother had varicose veins, you are more likely to have them. Lifestyle factors play a significant role as well. If your job requires you to stand for long periods, such as medical professionals, factory workers, sales or restaurant occupations, you are more likely to get varicose veins. If you travel and spend long hours flying or driving, or if you sit at a desk for several hours at a time, you are at risk as well. Varicose veins can even be the result of previous leg trauma. Varicose veins can affect men of all ages but the risk increases with age because of the loss of tissue tone and muscle mass, as well as a weakening of the venous walls. If restless legs keep you awake at night, this could be a sign that you have varicose veins. If you don’t enjoy taking a walk with your wife or playing with the kids or grandkids like you used to because of leg pain, that could be another sign. Generally men have the same symptoms as women: pain, leg heaviness, tiredness, muscle cramps and swelling. But, as men, we are less likely to seek medical treatment. It is important that you seek consultation if you are experienc-

ing any of these symptoms. Like any chronic medical condition, varicose veins will progress without treatment. Because varicose veins are often painful, it is important to treat them in order to maintain an active lifestyle. Treatments such as medical grade compression stockings and changes in work habits can improve your symptoms but will not address the underlying cause. Severe varicose veins can lead to serious complications such as skin breakdown and even blood clots. The treatments available for men as exactly the same as for women and just as effective. Men can undergo ultrasound guided endovenous laser treatment , or EVLT. This cutting-edge laser procedure involves inserting a small laser fiber through the skin into the varicosed vein. Laser energy is delivered inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. Once that vein is closed, the blood reroutes to other healthy veins. Some men may need sclerotherapy following EVLT. The good news is that most patients are able to return to work almost immediately following treatment and eventually can resume those activities you have been avoiding.

It’s not vacant, it’s unoccupied Commentary by Jamie Ianigro

Question from Jessica W. from Westfield: Labor Day has passed and that means we’re starting to think about closing our lake house for the winter. What kind of Insurance insurance concerns should we be thinking about? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Sorry to hear that news. I’m sure your independent insurance agent would love to come down the next couple of weekends to help you out… A couple of factors come in play when we talk about unoccupied homes and insurance. Notice I didn’t say vacant homes. Let’s start with the difference between vacant and unoccupied. Figuring out the difference between a vacant home and an unoccupied home is as easy as walking in the front door. Unoccupied homes might be a little chilly or a little warm, but people are obviously still living there. It will look like someone could have just left or might be home shortly. A vacant home is going to be pretty much empty and it will be obvious that people are not living there. The fridge will be empty, most of the furniture will be gone, etc. Insurance carriers will not insure an unoccupied home and a vacant home at the same price or coverage levels. A vacant dwelling requires

a special policy and is much more costly than a common homeowner’s policy. Your independent insurance agent can help you find a vacant home policy or elaborate further if you think your home might be vacant. Each insurance carrier is different, but you can start to lose coverage’s if your home is unoccupied for a certain period of time. The big two that usually drop off would be coverage for vandalism and coverage for losses caused by a plumbing failure like freezing pipes. These claims can each be costly, so it is very important to know and understand your policy provisions. Dropping by in January to find a ruined house can be made a lot worse by finding out your insurance carrier is denying all or major parts of your claim. The important takeaway here is to make sure you understand your insurance policy before you lock the doors and winterize the boat. Your independent insurance agent will be glad to go over it with you and clear up any confusion you may have.

Create your moment Commentary by Randy Sorrell “Creating moments” is the new buzz in the green industry as the satisfaction of outdoor living gains momentum. Inspired families are learning to outdoors spend more time laughing/ dining/talking around the delicious patio than tethered to the television. These abbreviated moments are loosely defined and evoke all sorts of imagery of solitude and romance. Something most of us could use more of. Perhaps it’s a cache of heirloom perennials blasting color and fragrance on a forgotten path, or carved in the edge of an original travertine patio. It could be an iron bench overlooking a hedge of double knock out roses or tastefully placed under a maturing dogwood canopy. Larger moments happen when spaces are arranged with an end product in mind…”I want all the kids to hang out at our place after the musical or football game around the boulder fire pit”. Or…“Our generous patio needs to flow well for the neighbors to gather around our grill counter, smoke cigars and drink a bottle of wine”. CONVERSATIONS. EMOTION. Those are the conversations needed to create the spaces that make these sought after moments happen. Without that, the space may look great, but feel benign. There are several relevant strategies to intentionally draw out the emotion of a gravel path,

Quality furniture with dramatic cushions and a textured elegant rug can elevate any space and prompt a sterile concrete slab into a provocative living area.

BEAUTY BY NUTRITION Preparing your snacks ahead of time is one of the best ways to prevent unwanted weight gain. Our on-staff Registered Dietician has given us her tried and true combos to help keep you full and keep you away from the chips and candy. Planning ahead will keep you from going overboard between meals! Grapes & Grahams: Take one graham cracker and split it into two squares. Spread each square with a light layer of cream cheese. Then sprinkle eight halved grapes over the top. It may sound strange, but it’s so delicious! Pear/Apple & String Cheese: To curb your sugar cravings, have a piece of fruit with a side of cheesy protein. Cheese is packed with calcium, calcium can help adjust your body’s fat-burning machinery. Greek Yogurt: Have a cup of Greek yogurt. If it’s plain, drizzle a little agave nectar over it and top it off with a few berries or slivered almonds. Greek yogurt is packed with protein, which will keep you feeling full. Plus it has a lot of calcium too! Hummus & Veggies: The hummus is made from chickpeas, which is rich in protein and fiber. It’s low fat and filling! READY YOUR FALL WARDOBE IN 7 EASY STEPS Pretty soon we'll be trading our iced coffees for a warm pumpkin spice latte; likewise, we will be making adjustments in our closets, trading sundresses for cozier fare. Because the change of seasons is a much more subtle transition (not like flipping a switch), we're creating a few of our favorite ways to ready for the weather with ease - the pieces you'll need right now to transform your summery staples for the Fall season ahead. • Start simple - a cardigan may just be the best lightweight layer to begin the transition. Invest in soft cashmere versions and longer-length varieties that will wear just as well over your favorite Summer dresses now, as they will with skinny pants and denim later on in the season. • Your footwear is the easiest way to hint at the change of seasons. Start swapping your sandals and wedges for loafers and ankle boots that feel inherently like Fall. You don't have to commit to a head-to-toe Fall style, but changing your favorite gladiator sandals for a pair of loafers with your jeans shows you're on top of the seasonal shift.

IT’S A MATCH For the Fall transition, we're excited to slip on a pair of matchstick pants to pair with your fresh crop of sweaters, silky boyfriend tops, and blazers. Cut close to the body and cropped right at the ankle, matchstick pants are universally flattering and add a slightly more formal touch to your everyday look. Designers are showing a wide array of saturated colors and textured fabrics that's sure to add an unexpected element of sleek splendor to any Fall look. Style them with suede ankle boots or a pair of pointed-toe pumps for a decidedly retro cool tilt on Fall dressing.

• While Summer is the season for breezy cotton, Fall is all about rich, luxe textures. Start introducing corduroy, leather and faux fur detailing when the chill really sets in. • A transition to Fall means adding to your jacket wardrobe. A denim jacket is perfect for everyday to throw over a printed dress, skirt, or tee; later, it will be a staple in your Fall wardrobe, alongside sophisticated skinnies and a snug sweater. • For work: style up your shift dress with a blazer and finish with pumps. • Embrace the shift with a darker palette. Adding jewel tones and deep browns, blacks, and grays to temper bold print and bright color can take even your most summery printed skirts and dresses into Autumn. • Do an accessory swap. Trade in raffia, woven, and lighter-weight satchels for leather and suede satchels or handbags with heavier hardware. Even toting a Fall-feeling purse can give your look a seasonally minded makeover in a snap.

Lighting your master bathroom Commentary by David Decker

ing on the computer or applying makeup at the vanity. And because task lighting is more direct, using more of these lights instead of ambient lighting can help you save on energy bills. Accent lighting refers to the top layer of our lighting system. This lighting helps enhance the room and create visual interest. You can use accent lighting to illuminate art or architectural elements. Accent lights usually are adjustable so they can be used to produce a variety of styles for the room. This layer doesn’t necessarily add functional light to the room; it’s mainly there to complete the look of the room. Make sure these lights are on the dim side so they don’t overpower the rest of your décor. Here’s a quick checklist provided by the American Lighting Association to help you determine whether you have an adequate lighting scheme for your master bedroom. You will want to be able to say yes to each of these questions. 1. Can I see well enough to get dressed? 2. Is there a light in the closet? 3. Are there individual reading lights on each side of the bed? 4. Is there an overhead light source?

Since it is one of the keystones of any home, chances are that you use your master bedroom space as more than just a place indoors to sleep at night. Functional, beautiful lighting can’t be created from a single light source. You’ll want different types of lighting that correspond with the different activities you do most. To achieve the best lighting design for your master bedroom, consider using layers to light the space. Layering lighting works by blending together multiple light sources to create a rich and ambient atmosphere. Let’s take a look at the specifics of this method and discover how layering can be implemented successfully in your bedroom. The bottom layer of our lighting pyramid is called the “overall” layer orDavid “ambient” layer. This is the foundation of the room’s lighting design. Chandeliers, ceiling fixtures and wall sconces fall into this category, and are intended to create soft illumination for everyday use. The ambient layer will determine the general brightness of the room. You may want to try installing dimmer switches or wiring different lights to David Decker is president of the turn on via different switches.
