An apolitical politician? Founded Jan. 25, 2011, at Fishers, IN Vol. I, No. 36 Copyright 2011. Current Publishing, LLC All Rights Reserved. 1 South Range Line Road, Suite 220 Carmel, IN 46032

317.489.4444 Managing Editor – Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com / 489.4444 ext. 204 Associate Editor – Terry Anker terry@currentincarmel.com Copy Editor – Lindsay Eckert lindsay@youarecurrent.com Art Director – Zachary Ross zach@youarecurrent.com / 489.4444

OUR VIEWS

It doesn’t seem possible, does it? A politician that isn’t all that political? We have one in our midst, and perhaps Hamilton County could learn something by watching (and listening to) Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. This man, who is seeking his second term in next month’s general election, is the antithesis of what many expect to see and hear in a campaigning official. His low-key, easy-going and city-centric demeanor (get this!) actually nearly cost him the primary election back in May. He wouldn’t “stoop,” as he put it, to playing his opponent’s “down-and-dirty” political games on the campaign trail. Come election night nearly six months ago, the race he was running proved to be a nail-biter. He said, as he accepted his victory, that he never has been political and never wants to be. All Cook wants to do is serve his city – and win re-election, naturally. There are several candidates, present and past, that could tear a page out of his playbook and comport themselves and their campaigns in similar fashion. We’re not so naïve as to believe that ever will roundly happen, and so, for the meantime, Cook is something of a lone wolf in that regard. And it is our position that his is the proper stance.

Fall for all

It is our position that fall is a time for family, football and franks. Whether you’re leaping into a pile of leaves with your kids, keeping your fingers crossed for the Colts or sipping hot (or cold) cider by a tailgate the crisp season is one that’s activities vary as much as the season’s colorful and changing landscape. Hamilton County is at its picturesque peak in the weeks of October and we believe Current readers should celebrate more than Halloween, one of our favorite holidays, by the way. Challenge yourself to take on the fall activities before winter rakes up the season. We encourage you to get lost in a corn maze, face your fears at one of the many haunted-house tours and put those trick-or-treat bags through a practice run by filling them with fresh produce from farmers markets in Hamilton County. Fill the fall air with the aroma of bonfires and fired-up grills, and pocket your smartphones for a few hours to take a drive on some of Hamilton County’s tree-lined roads for nature’s most colorful show.

FROM THE BACKSHOP St.V Fishers Hospital: Countdown is on Town officials on Monday helped St.Vincent Health turn the first spades of dirt on what will become St.Vincent Fishers Hospital. It’s an exciting time for health care in our town with this planned 110,000-square foot expansion. The key here is that it answers residents’ requirements in a burgeoning medical marketplace. The existing Medical Center Northeast, the first free-standing emergency department in Indiana, will be expanded to include a 40-bed impatient facility. While the organization will zero in on wellness for women and families, the expansion will have medical/surgical beds, as well as labor-delivery-postpartum room and high-end amenities, including indoor and outdoor dining and round-theclock room service for patients. The icing on the cake is that this project, scheduled for completion by 2013, is expected to create 200 additional jobs for our town. All told, it’s a laudable, if not hefty, investment in the community’s wellbeing. ••• It was a turn-away event – for the latecoming companies that tried to become exhibitors at last week’s Hamilton County Job Fair. More than 80 firms, each required to have at least five positions that had to be filled “now,” were on hand to fill the show. The commitment to swell the workforce of

Capital flowing back into the market? I certainly approve

COMMENTARY By Jordan Fischer We’re seeing mixed feelings coming out of September’s “Small Business Optimism Index,” published regularly by the National Federation of Independent Business. While the report shows a drop in small business confidence in the future of the economy to 88.1 percent, it also shows a two-point increase in reported capital outlays over the past six months, and a one-point increase in planned capital outlays over the next three to six months. We especially like to see those latter two numbers increasing. Small business is the engine to our economy, and the one thing all sides can agree upon is that prospective entrepreneurs need access to capital to get that engine going. Increases in capital outlays show that access beginning to increase again as banks begin approving more small business loans. Speaking of banks – not everyone’s favorite subject over the last several years – we applaud a recent decision by KeyBank to open up $5 billion in capital to small business owners over the next three years. One of the bank’s executives said she’s seen “cautious optimism” among small business own-

ers. We’re glad to hear it. Being a small business publication, new businesses entering the market means more readers, and more stories, for us. We also think cautious optimism is just what banks should be looking for in loan applicants. KeyBank reports its new lending program will come hand-in-hand with in-person financial review, workshops, and new “business intensive” branches. While we don’t think there should be too many obstacles between an entrepreneur and starting his or her dream business, in light of the market crash, which was caused in large part by approval of unqualified loan applications, we are glad to see some additional scrutiny, and particularly support, be offered to entrepreneurs prior to their grand opening. That being said, we’re looking forward to capital flowing back into small business. We recently moved into a new office across the street, and we’d love to see our old space filled with new neighbors.

Magical trip to the kingdom

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson M-I-C. K-E-Y. M-O-you know what? I am exhausted. Although I just arrived home from a girls-only weekend at Disney World, I have recovered enough to share my experiences. I say “recovered” because the Orlando-based world of Disney is far from relaxing. Regardless, I will never forget my 72-hour magical adventure. Here are some of the highlights: Going all mommy dearest at Space Mountain. I channeled Joan Crawford and forced my 7-year-old to ride the scary indoor roller coaster. She usually loves thrill rides, and I was certain once she got going she would rank it as an alltime favorite. I was wrong. She screamed the entire four minutes, prompting the gentleman in front of me to double check I was not shaving her skin off with a potato peeler. Dining with the princesses. Yes, this is expensive. Yes, it’s a bit cheesy. But I got to meet Belle, Snow White and Ariel. I mean, they actually talked to me! “Well, hello, your highness,” lilted Cinderella. “How are you enjoying your stay in my castle?” Hee hee hee. Your highness. Taking one for the team at the Mad Tea Party teacups. My youngest niece turned out to be too short to ride the puke-inducing torture bowls, and her mom worried she’d get a migraine. So I sucked it up and volunteered my chaperone services, knowing this could be a game-ender for me. I can get motion sick in bed,

so imagine me spinning in several different directions in high humidity on an empty stomach. I swayed like a drunk for several minutes after exiting that hideous ride. Bibbity-bobbity-blek! Flying high on Soaring. Our flight home was bumped up two hours, which meant we only had about an hour to spend at Epcot. The strategy? Arrive when the gates open and sprint for Soaring, a simulated hang-gliding attraction with hour-long waits. Listening to my two girls giggle with delight as we virtually flew over farmlands, ocean and glaciers was the best moment of the trip for me. Witnessing a miracle. A woman collapsed not far from where we were observing young padawans duel Darth Vader that’s when another woman rushed to help. She began vigorous CPR and after several minutes, was able to bring the heart attack victim back to consciousness. The passerby is a trauma nurse. She literally saved this woman’s life, right in front of us. Now, that’s magic. We walked miles in the 90-degree temperatures, fought crowds, and suffered our fair share of tantrums and diarrhea, but it was still an amazing and memorable trip. P-E-A. C-EOUT. M-O-U-S-E.

Senior housing, 2012 budget on council agenda

GET YOUR FACE IN HERE!

2012 municipal budget expected to top $63 million By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com The Fishers Town Council received a formal presentation from Town Manager Scott Fadness last Monday on the proposed 2012 municipal budget. Fadness focused on the town’s ability to maintain and increase cash reserves through the past several years of a slow economy. “It’s important to note that although we’re continuing to face tough economy times, Fishers is well-positioned to continue moving forward in the future,” Fadness said. The presentation also laid out new expenditures in the estimated $63.2 million budget, among them the construction of the new Fire Station 96, a new park in the Geist Annexation area (a bond issuance for which was also approved Monday night), the reinstatement of the STEPS program for town employees, and an estimated $700,000 for county emergency dispatch services in preparation for expected changes to the number of county dispatches and how costs will be allocated among municipalities. The final adoption of the 2012 Municipal Budget will be held at next Monday’s town council meeting. The budget is subject to change until that point. Also on the council’s agenda were two proposed senior living communities. The first, brought to the council by the Lenity Group on behalf of Hawthorn Retirement Group, would see construction of an independent living retirement center at the southwest corner of 146th Street and Allisonville Road. That petition was given a first reading and sent to committee. On second reading was a request for an amendment to the Parkside PUD Ordinance, brought before the council by Mann Properties. The amendment would allow for the construction of up to 150 units of senior housing at 12801 Parkside Dr., near the intersection of 126th Street and Ind. 37. The council expressed concerns at allowing a residential development in what is zoned as a commercial area. “We have a defined amount of commercial space that’s really attractive,” said Scott Faultless, town council president. “Right along those main thoroughfares is where it’s really attractive.” The petition will receive a third reading at next Monday’s meeting of the town council.

Carl Brizzi & Associates 698 Pro-Med Lane, Suite 230 Carmel, 46032 www.carlbrizzi.com

Carl Brizzi’s is making a second career out of managing others’ reputations By Kevin Kane kevin@youarecurrent.com Former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi likened his experience with starting his private practice to Jerry Maguire. “When I left the prosecutor’s office, I didn’t have a single client,” said Brizzi, who after two terms as prosecutor opened his Carmel firm in January. And like Tom Cruise’s character, Brizzi, a Fishers resident, is attracting new clients by offering personal service that goes beyond the scope of typical legal representation. Drawing from his own experiences, Brizzi offers help in reputation management for many of his clients. His clients often are “good people who have made a mistake in one form or another,” he said, adding that he works to soften the blow caused by these mistakes, both in and out of the courtroom. “Almost all of my cases have ramifications beyond the legal ones,” he said. “I don’t even know how to be a lawyer and not be this guy after everything I experienced as prosecutor for eight years and learning that bad things happen to good people.” Many of his clients are not well-known, public figures, and for them he often works to prevent a ripple effect, created by their legal issues, from impacting other aspects of his clients’ lives, such as employment. But in a few months he has landed some high-profile cases, too, including the representation of Secretary of State Charlie White. In these cases, he imparts the knowledge he gained while in office. This includes his handling of the unwanted media attention and scrutiny he received, in part, as a result of his ties to Tim Durham, a financier indicted for fraud earlier this year. “I draw on that experience,” he said. “Some lessons are harder to learn that others…Hopefully what I can do in my new role is help others who may be similarly situated.” Jim Parham, chief operating officer at Hirons & Co. Communications, has worked with Brizzi on number of cases in which clients were in need of public relations help and other reputation management services. Though he’s worked with many other attorneys on similar cases, Parham said Brizzi’s expertise in law, public policy and politics make him especially effective in these cases. “Carl’s been in the spotlight himself,” Parham said. “He has a lot of experience with the media and that really helps a lot…He’s got a lot of unique characteristics.” Brizzi said he hasn’t actively worked or followed a plan to

high profiles His new practice less than a year old, Carl Brizzi is involved in two of state’s highest-profile cases: He serves as lead defense attorney for Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White and represents Heather Goodrich, whose husband, Glenn, was killed in the Aug. 13 tragedy at the Indiana State Fair.

change or manage his own reputation. After more than eight years of experience dealing with the media and public perception, distinguishing the right moves from the wrong ones comes easily to him now. When he sees attorneys rush off their clients and avoid the media, for example, he envisions a different course of action. “You can’t be a mole and bury yourself underground,” he said, adding that in some cases the best way to reverse public perception is to publicly own one’s mistakes. “One thing you’ll never hear me say is, ‘No comment.’ I don’t know why attorneys say, ‘No comment.’” Brizzi said some things would have been done differently in White’s case, too, if he had been his original counsel. White hired Brizzi in August after firing his previous attorney. “Would I have told him to shut up in a room full of reporters? Absolutely not,” he said. His second career under way, Brizzi said he sees himself as much more than a lawyer, bringing to the table of variety of skills and experiences. His first handful of clients were friends and acquaintances, but now he receives several inquiries a week from new and faces seeking the same -Jim Parham names assistance he’s provided to previous and existing clients. No one has sought his help solely for reputation assistance, but he said this is part of nearly every case he takes. While the accused are presumed innocent in court, Brizzi said this is rarely the case in the court of public opinion. Regardless of the size of the case or the profiles of the persons involved, the public tends to assume guilt, with or without the necessary facts, Brizzi said. Making the wrong moves, he said, can have a devastating and lasting impact. “It’s not difficult for people to get the wrong idea about you,” he said. “People are very quick to judge. I know this because I experienced it first-hand.”

“Carl’s been in the spotlight himself. He has a lot of experience with the media and that really helps a lot, He’s got a lot of unique characteristics.”

Parks volunteers give back, naturally By Darla Kinney Scoles editorial@youarecurrent.com Marilyn Craig of Noblesville, walking her dog Boo, passed through a sea of yellow Helping Hands t-shirts worn by hundreds of volunteers Sept. 17. Craig said she would have joined their ranks in trail clearing and pavilion painting had she known the project was happening that day. “I love this park,” shared Craig. “When I walk and see trash, I pick it up and appreciate that others do, too.” This day, designated a Day of Service to Hamilton County by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, brought church members from throughout the area to the park to help better their community through service. Their works, and those of all parks volunteers, help park staff keep up with needed projects – large and small – throughout the year. Susan Wilson, Hamilton County Parks and Recreation Department volunteer coordinator, said her database maintains about 250 to 300 volunteers from which she recruits on a regular basis when help is needed. In addition to the nearly 1,000 members of the LDS church, young Eagle Scout Alec Gorge of Carmel also was working to clear trails and remove invasive plants along the creek banks. “When you see things cleaned and repaired, you know someone cared,” Gorge said. Wilson logs all of the hours of unpaid help she receives each year.

“In 2009, we logged 7,000-plus hours; in 2010, 9,000-plus,” Wilson said. “I am anticipating easily exceeding 11,000 hours this year. That represents $60,000 in 2009, $76,000 in 2010 and an estimated $94,000-plus in 2011.” Parks volunteers serve throughout the year, but the need never ends for more hands to help. Their greatest volunteer need at the moment is continuing the invasive species plant removal projects at all their properties. Wilson also is looking for project leaders. Carla Hardy said seeing the yellow-clad volunteers reminded her of what it takes to maintain the park. “I never thought about it much,” she said. “But when we walked by a wheelbarrow of trash, I realized the park was clean because someone was volunteering to make it that way.” For more information, visit www.hamiltoncounty.in.gov/services or call 379-9552.

Public matters in public education COMMENTARY By Freedom Kolb Those who know me can attest I can be a little verbose. For the record, I’m sure they mean it in the best possible way. Yet as I sit at the computer poised to write about all things education, I find myself speechless. It isn’t that I can’t find a topic, it is where to begin. Swirling controversy about state run schools? Transitioning to full day kindergarten? Merits and drawbacks of voucher programs? As I reflect on the options, it occurs to me Hamilton Southeastern has remained remarkably steady amidst today’s stormy education climate. In fact, the district just earned a sixth straight exemplary rating. You might argue the district receives good raw material with many incoming students well-prepared and willing to learn. The talented and dedicated staff and faculty the district attracts can’t hurt either. Although both of these are certainly true, I think the root of the district’s long history of academic excellence lies deeper. The greater Fishers community seems to understand the public’s role in public education. Although many other districts transitioned to paid bussing and diminished programs, our community has passed two referendums in the last two years. PTO gatherings, athletic events and parent-teacher conferences are all well attended. Businesses and residents alike, even those without students in the district, understand a clear connection between strength of schools and robust property values, not to mention low crimes rates.

However, you might not realize Fishers is also home to a little known community gem: the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation. This year marks the 10th anniversary of this organization, the sole mission of which is to enhance the education experience for HSE students. During those ten years, the foundation has provided more than $662,445 in scholarships and $225,093 in classroom grants, while at the same time rewarding teacher innovation and bridging gaps in state funding. Although we should give ourselves a collective pat on the back, more importantly we need to keep up the good work. The foundation has two current initiatives for you to show your school pride: Thank an Educator and 10 for 10. Foundation director Lisa Allen explains, “If every family in the district would show their support by donating $10 for our 10th anniversary, our base of funds available for teacher grants and student scholarships would be solidly secured for the future.” Visit www.hsefoundation. org to learn more, and while you’re there, don’t forget to check out what grants your school has received in the past. And as always, let me know what education topics matter to you! Freedom Kolb is a community volunteer and board member with the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation.

» Fight jet lag? – In a study published in the Journal of Science in 2008, researchers suggested that fasting for about 16 hours before a long flight may actually help to fend off  jet lag. Normally it’s light that triggers an internal clock that controls when we eat and sleep. But according to the study, a second clock seems to override the first when the body senses that food is in short supply.

The ‘staycation’ guide: Surprising state parks COMMENTARY By Jocelyn Vare You can always count on Indiana’s network of 25 state parks to provide an ideal setting for outdoor recreation activities. State parks offer wellmaintained hiking trails, camping sites and picnic shelters. Although state parks have unique qualities, Spring Mill State Park in Mitchell and Falls of the Ohio State Park in Clarksville go beyond the definition of a typical state park. Plan on two full days to enjoy the variety of family activities found at Spring Mill State Park. The centerpiece of the park is a pioneer village with multiple historic structures to tour. During a weekend visit, you can watch corn being ground into corn meal inside a two-story mill. At this state park, you can also explore under the surface on a guided boat tour through Twin Caves. For me, the most surprising of all Spring Mill State Park offering is an astronaut museum. Hometown hero, astronaut Virgil “Gus” Grissom, was the second man in space in 1961. Grissom’s space suit and one of the capsules he piloted are inside the newly-refurbished museum. Spring Mill State Park is in Mitchell, south of Bloomington at Ind. 37, about a 1-1/2 hour drive from Indianapolis. Consider spending the night at Spring Mill State Park Inn, inside the park. Indiana’s state park system is almost 100 years old but part of the Falls of the Ohio State Park is more than 390 million years old. The state park is in Clarksville, right on the banks of the Ohio River in southernmost Indiana, just north of Louisville. Accessible fossil beds are a surprising feature of

the park. Visitors can explore one of the largest exposed Devonian fossil beds in the world. At the spectacular interpretive center overlooking the fossil beds, I learned more than 300 types of fossils have been found in the Falls of the Ohio State Park, a former ancient sea bottom. More recent history can be experienced at the George Rogers Clark Home Site. A representation of General George Rogers Clark’s cabin is filled with items of the colonial era. Today, costumed interpreters greet visitors and exhibits tell the story of General Clark and the significance the cabin had in the Lewis & Clark expedition. The George Rogers Clark Home Site is open during weekends in October. The website www. fallsoftheohio.org offers good alternate routes to reach the state park since the Sherman Minton (I-64) Bridge is currently closed.

Helping to plan that ‘perfect day’ By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com Those looking to or currently planning a wedding found plenty of ideas and options during the free Hamilton County Fall Bridal Show last week at Conner Prairie. The four-hour event was sponsored by Aardvark’s Party Rentals. “It’s been very busy. We’re excited about that,” said Aardvark’s owner Steven Goss. Aardvark’s began hosting the bridal show in 2002 and added a spring show earlier this year. “We wanted to provide a low-cost market of vendors to connect with the public,” said Goss. “Local providers tend to be better providers than the chains.” The fall show had 28 vendors covering a broad spectrum of needs – travel, rental, disc jockeys, photographers, caterers, venues, invitation and program printers and clothing providers. It also included a drawing for an all-inclusive three-night, four-day stay at a Club Med location by Family Vacations travel agency of Noblesville. “They’re all wedding professionals in wedding-related businesses,” Goss said. Dan Yancey of Yancey’s Apparel in Noblesville said he usually gets six to seven new clients after attending bridal shows, but is hopeful this year’s show will provide even more. “It’s been very nice. The nicest part is that there are a lot of men with their brides-to-be. A lot of times it’s just brides,” he said. “More than

anything it gets my name out.” “The only way to break through and be successful in the wedding business is really (through) word of mouth,” added Rachel Hammack of Sheridan Florist. “Brides see your work here.” Hammack added typically at least one person at a wedding is engaged and planning their own celebration. “I like that there is not a lot of vendors. It’s not as overwhelming for brides,” she said. “It’s small and more personal,” added Rachel Spencer of Sheridan Florist. “Usually there are so many vendors. I like that we’re the only florists.” Susan Pierce’s daughter will be wed in May and she came to the event to find nearby vendors for the blessed day. “I heard all the vendors were local,” she said. “That’s important to me.”

DISPATCHES » Risks of anesthesia – Children who received general anesthesia repeatedly before the age of two had a doubling of their risk for learning disabilities at school age, according to a new study released last week. In recent years, many animal studies have shown that the drugs hamper brain development when administered during sensitive growth periods, and a contentious human study published in 2009 – by many of the same researchers who conducted this new research – found an increased risk of learning disabilities for children who had anesthesia under the age of four. -The Wall Street Journal » Shop for good health? – New study: About 1,800 adults age 65 and older were asked how often they went shopping – with options ranging from “never” to “every day.” Researchers found that those who shopped every day had a 27 percent lower risk for death than those who shopped less frequently. Daily shopping was especially beneficial for men – their mortality reduction was 28 percent, compared with 23 percent for women. Theory: Shopping, even window shopping, allows you to get out of the house, socialize and be physically active – factors believed to extend life. -Bottom Line Health

Busting breast cancer with Vitamin D COMMENTARY By Angela LaSalle M.D.

Is Vitamin D an emerging tool in the fight against breast cancer? In a recent study at the State University of New York, human breast cancer cells were treated with Vitamin D resulting in shrinkage and death of the abnormal cells. Vitamin D levels may also be predictive of more aggressive cancers with one study showing women with more aggressive cancer types being three times more likely to have low Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D does more than protect the breasts. Recently, a randomized controlled trial with 1100 IU/day Vitamin D3 plus 1450 mg/day calcium found a 77 percent reduction in all-cancer incidence. One possible mechanism may be the VDR, or Vitamin D Receptor. The VDR is one of the regulators of gene transcription, and may work to turn on and off critical genes involved in the growth of tumor cells. Detoxification pathways also require Vitamin D and affect the breakdown of hormones, toxins and the production of neurotransmitters and fights inflammation. Vitamin D also is protective against cancer recurrence. A study published in the Aug 2010 issue of Journal of Clinical On-

Imagine…Using Your Own Cells to Improve Lines and Wrinkles on Your Face What was once science fiction is now reality. The ability to use your own cells to generate new collagen and restore youthful skin is finally here. It’s called laViv. LaViv is the first and only FDA-approved personalized cell therapy used to treat smile lines, the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The personalized cell therapy works by extracting and multiplying a person’s own skin cells called fibroblasts, to create laViv, which is then injected into the patient to improve the appearance of lines. Fibroblast cells play a critical role producing collagen and as people age, their fibroblasts and collagen break down, resulting in wrinkles and lost skin tone. LaViv produces rejuvenated cellular fibroblasts, which are responsible for making collagen improving skin tone, structure, and quality. LaViv therapy provides a smooth, even appearance with gradual, natural looking results in 3-6 months. The treatment is

cology showed that women with deficient Vitamin D levels were 94 percent more likely to have distant recurrence and 73 percent more likely to die from the disease. Lack of sun exposure isn’t the only cause for low Vitamin D. Researchers have identified genetic variations in the Vitamin D receptors that can increase risk for breast, prostate, melanoma, bladder and colon cancers as well as other ailments such as diabetes, depression and auto-immune disease. Nutrition and sun exposure are important variables as is skin tone with darker skinned individuals having lower Vitamin D levels. How do you know if you need more Vitamin D? The best way is for your doctor to order a blood test to check Vitamin D levels. Though the laboratory range for a normal level is between 30 and 100, most experts suggest that a more optimal level is between 50-80 ng/ml to achieve the best cancer protective effect.

effective and safe because the fibroblast cells are recognized by your body’s immune system and do not trigger an immune response. As a result of participating in laViv clinical trials, I am the first and only physician in Indiana to offer laViv therapy. I have over 10-years of experience with laViv therapy, and have perfected the injection technique required to optimize cellular growth. The procedure is completed in our office and involves taking a sample of fibroblast skin cells from behind the ear. The location is chosen due to limited exposure to the sun and to avoid creating a visible scar. Once the biopsy is complete, the cells are sent to a lab, where the fibroblasts are grown and multiplied. The growth process takes approximately 90- days, and when complete, the cells are sent back to our office for injection. Your fibroblast cells are stored, will remain frozen, and can be used for future injections. Introductory pricing is available for a limited time. For more information on laViv, come to an educational seminar on at our office located at 9002 N. Meridian Street, Suite 205. Wednesday October 19 at 6:30pm. Seating is limited. Please contact jill@drchernoff.com to R.S.V.P. If you cannot attend the seminar or would like a private consultation, contact our office to schedule your laViv consultation.

DISPATCHES » New debit card fees – Bank of America will start charging a $5 monthly fee to consumers who use their debit cards early next year, joining a series of banks reacting to new federal regulations by imposing new costs for customers. Wells Fargo, Chase, SunTrust and Regions Bank also are launching debit card fees, either in certain states or system wide, and many others have cut rewards. But if you’re willing to shift your accounts to an online bank, you can still get debit rewards. Ally Bank, for instance, pays both rewards and a decent interest rate on deposits. -www.bnet.com » Credit card myth – There’s a myth that carrying a balance on your credit cards will help your credit score. About 54 percent of Americans pay their balances in full every month, but this helps their credit score. Paying in full every cycle helps buoy your credit score and helps prevent adverse consequences later: higher interest rates, higher auto insurance premiums in some states, or not qualifying for credit at all. Your payment history counts for 35 percent of your credit score, according to MyFICO.com. -www.foxbusiness.com

» Open windows or use A/C? - According to the Ford Motor Company’s Driving Skills for Life program, drivers close car windows at speeds above 50 mph and use the air conditioning, as open windows at highway speeds increase aerodynamic drag and the engine works harder than if it were using the A/C. However, when the Discovery Channel’s TV series MythBusters tested this theory, they concluded the air conditioner should be avoided no matter the speed.  Consumerreports.org came to a similar conclusion. When it tested a Honda Accord, the effect of opening the windows at 65 mph was not measurable, whereas using the air conditioner did reduce gas mileage by more than 3 mpg. -www.budgettravel.com » Crooks can buy ATMs – Hop on over to eBay and Craigslist and type in “ATM.” Availability varies, but often you can find machines for sale that cost just a few hundred bucks.

Bison, it’s what’s for dinner By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com Those looking to try something new – or healthier – for dinner should consider visiting the newly opened Bison World for a variety of exotic meats which are grass fed and locally-raised. The store, which opened on Aug. 16, offers bison, beef, pork, venison, lamb and elk cuts. Johnson Farms has been raising buffalo since 1999 and its farm has included camels, zebras, highlanders and other exotic animals. Bison World owner Art Johnson said he used to give his bison meat away or provided it to golf outings and charities before going into business. In February, Bison World became the local distributor in Indiana for Green B.E.A.N. Foods. “We know where it comes from and how it’s been raised. We don’t add anything to our meats,” he said. “There is no processing on site. We use a USGA certified site.” Johnson said once people taste bison meat they tend to prefer it over beef. He added the meat also contains many health benefits including being the lowest meat in terms of fat, calories and cholesterol and is the highest in iron and second to salmon in Vitamin B12. When comparing similar sizes of bison and 95 percent lean beef, Johnson said the beef produces five tablespoons of grease when cooked to just half a teaspoon for the buffalo meat. “It’s the only meat that contains no known

allergens to man,” said Johnson. “It also has 33 percent more protein compared to beef so you eat less and are filled faster.” In addition to the various meats, Bison World offers unique bison-related items like robes, leather jackets, mounted heads and even stuffed animals. “Every part of the animal can be used. It’s an efficient creature,” Johnson said. In the near future, Johnson plans to add a smokehouse and produce stand to the store. “I hope we’re cooking meat and selling burgers next summer,” he said. Bison World is at 20100 Ind. 37 North, Noblesville. The building began as a golf cart store in 1974 but has been vacant since 2008, before Johnson purchased and redesigned the location. Bison World is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit www. bisonworld.org or call 214-1060.

We don’t even have to clean up after our parties because the amazing staff here does it for us. In short, while the rest of the area is digging out—we‘ll be living it up!

What if I work from home?

INSURANCE Q&A By Dena Shepherd Page Question from Rachel M. from Westfield: I work from home once or twice a week. Are there any insurance issues I need to worry about? Response from Dena Shepherd Page: If you have an ongoing arrangement to work at home in any capacity, you will be considered a telecommuter. The special privilege of reduced commuting also brings some special insurance considerations in play. Bringing your work home with you can have some unintended consequences. Most homeowner policies severely restrict or exclude coverage for business property. This is further complicated by the fact business property is usually pretty valuable. Business property could include anything your employer provides for you to work at home, including computers, printers, phone equipment and valuable paperwork. Liability issues can also arise when you’re working from home. A typical homeowner policy will completely exclude business-related losses. A social guest slipping and falling is a common claim your homeowners policy will cover. Switch it around and make the guest a business guest and you can have liability issues for you and for your employer. Liability claims are never fun, but they’re a lot less fun when your homeowner policy excludes them. Using your personal vehicle for job-related

activities, like making deliveries or client calls, can also cause some issues. Most personal auto policies exclude job-related use. Driving to and from work would not fall under job-related use. Some examples of job-related use would be: picking up a client at the airport, running to the store to restock the office vending machine, driving to and from client appointments. Now that you have a better idea of what you should be worried about, you should take a minute to document what you do so your employer and your independent insurance agent can make sure you’re covered properly. Make note of the following: • What routine job duties do you perform in your home? • Are any tasks hazardous? • Who visits your home because of your job? • Is a certain part of your home dedicated as a work area/office? • What equipment is used in your job? Who owns each piece of equipment? The answers to these questions will be a great start for you and your independent insurance agent to make sure you are adequately protected.

Make it last: ‘Get outside and squeeze’

COMMENTARY By Randy Sorrell Have you noticed…people everywhere seem to be desperate? Desperate to squeeze every last moment of outside enjoyment into our narrowing schedules. Summers painfully hot / dry routine seems to have exaggerated this growing annual ritual and suddenly we are aware that in just a few short months it will be too cold and dark to relax on the cushy patio furniture. WALKABILITY The art of “cocooning” coupled with the increased “walkability” of our community has only served to fuel Americas’ fashionable love affair with outdoor living. Competing bike and hike trails

and the proliferation of parks of all sorts are a stark contrast to life a brief decade ago. Especially in Carmel. Not convinced? Next sunny Friday or Saturday afternoon, take a stroll in the Carmel Arts District, SoBro or Mass Ave in Indy. Of course other cities have caught the buzz too. Fishers, Westfield and Noblesville are all fans of this Jeff Speck inspired termination of suburban sprawl. PROLONG THE FUN Begging, pleading and praying won’t scare off the demise of autumn, however there are several useful strategies to manufacture extra backyard moments. Will it be as comfy as gorgeous October evenings? Sorry. But imagine how compelling your patio space could be with a cozy fire feature and inspiring night lighting system. From the simple to elaborate, these luxuries can create resort like gatherings. Often, a minor adjustment can cause a big impact…a tipping point of sorts. That’s what fire and light can do. And if that’s not enough (and the budget allows) let’s build a lanais. Yep, there’s still time. These roof structures are great at capturing the warmth and creating destination. This confident structure, married with fire and light, can buy another 4 weeks

of enjoyment on each side of winter. Throw in a few episodes of House and Glee and suddenly the January / February stretch doesn’t seem too painful. Remember, there is always prayer. Off with the TV. Get outside and squeeze. Open a book and a bottle of wine. Fire up the grill, walk a trail and hug every possible morsel of joy before it’s time to hibernate.

Laughable lawsuits

COMMENTARY By Dick Wolfsie Martin Kessman, a longtime fan of White Castle hamburgers, has sued the Columbus, Ohio–based chain for inadequate seating. After eating their food for 50 years, he is now too big to wedge himself into the booths in the dining area. This is shocking to me: I never knew White Castles had dining areas. Every morsel I have ever consumed from there was shoveled in my mouth after leaving the drive-thru. Can Kessman win this lawsuit? White Castle attorneys say “fat chance,” which I think is the same as slim chance, but that wouldn’t fit as well in this case. Recently, he slapped a lawsuit on the company that makes his Blackberry because he said his pudgy fingers prevented him from dialing his mother and instead he kept getting the local pizza chain. Hmmmm. Since filing the suit, Kessman has boycotted the fast food chain, telling reporters he has no recollection of setting foot in a White Castle in the past year. But he’s not totally sure; it’s been a while since he’s seen his feet. Kessman also affirms when he did finally shoehorn himself into a booth, he slammed his knee into a metal table leg and doubled over in pain. No one came to his assistance. After all, anyone who eats more than four belly bombers assumes a similar posture, so no one really noticed him. Goofy lawsuits are not entirely new. Remember Johnny Carson’s claim against a portable

toilet manufacturer that labeled their product “Here’s Johnny” in their commercial spots? The potty-mouthed attorneys claimed their client had never heard Carson’s iconic introduction by Ed McMahon, but the judge was not convinced, especially since the company’s slogan was: World’s Best Commodian. Vanna White once sued a cellular phone conglomerate after they ran a TV ad with a blond robot turning letters over on a game show set much like “Wheel of Fortune”. She won the suit and got a reported two million dollars. Allen Heckard gets my vote for the most outrageous attempt to use our judicial system to make a quick buck. The Oregon resident is apparently a dead ringer for basketball super-star Michael Jordan and has tired of the persistent attention he attracts when he is out in public, so he’s suing Jordan for 800 million dollars. Can you blame him? It must be hard on a single guy like Allen to get the best table in a restaurant, fend off gorgeous chicks and have every sports nut in Portland buy you a beer. If his lawsuit prevails I may have to consider a similar money-making scheme for myself. George Clooney better hope he has a very good lawyer.
