Fishers Rotary Club presents charity ball By Nancy Edwards firstname.lastname@example.org The Rotary Club of Fishers is presenting the first WaterIsLife Charity Ball to benefit those in Sierra Leone, Africa, who are living without access to clean drinking water. The Rotary Club has been supporting a project, WaterIsLife, since 2008. Since then, water wells have been built for 100,000 people living in Sierra Leone. Before the wells were installed, about 5 to 10 percent of the population died each year as a result of waterborne illnesses, according to Tom Branum, Jr., member of Fishers Rotary Club and chairman of WaterIsLife Charity Ball. “There is no electricity and the water is hand-pumped,” he said. “It’s not uncommon for girls living in Sierra Leone to have to travel six hours to get to a well.” After new clean and disease-free wells were installed, the average time to travel to a well is now about an hour, which allows the residents to continue with the basic necessities of life, including food preparation. WaterIsLife is now working on phase II of the project: to serve an additional 100,000 people with the installation of new wells and to revisit the villages of phase I with additional humanitarian support. Branum had been thinking of ways to support phase II as he strolled around Allisonville Nursery in Fishers and talked with Nancy Gatewood, owner of Allison-

ville Nursery. “When I heard what (the project) was about, I thought of how to use the facility to help,” Gatewood said. “Our gift was space.” Allisonville Nursery is one of six local businesses housing 12 Christmas trees for the public to preview before being auctioned at the charity ball during a live and
silent auction. The trees were decorated by designers, who provided free labor for the event. The Christmas Tree Trail includes seven trees at Allisonville Nursery, followed by one tree per business at the following Fishers establishments: Bella Vita Restaurant, Scotty’s Lake House Restaurant, Gallery 116, and E.F. Marburger. J Baker Interiors of Carmel is also housing a tree. Trees are available to view through Nov. 29. The public may bid online for any of the trees or attend the charity ball and live auction for bidding. The WaterIsLife Charity Ball is being held on Dec. 1 at FORUM Conference Center located at 11313 USA Parkway, Fishers. A VIP reception will be held from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by live entertainment by The Stardusters Jazz/Swing Orchestra and a silent and live auction from 7 to 11 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase at $100 per person for the black-tie-optional event. Sponsoring a table for eight may be purchased for $1,000. Limited seating is available and tickets must be purchased by Nov. 27. For pre-bidding online, purchasing tickets, sponsorship, donations and more information about the WaterIsLife Charity Ball or the project, please go to CharityBall@FishersRotary.com or call 572-7150. Trees purchased by the highest bidder will be delivered on Dec. 2 to the donated local area of your choice: your church, office, a family or charity.

Around Town Fishers resident writes book to help others suffering thyroid disease COMMUNITY
By Dan Domsic • email@example.com One Fishers resident looks to raise awareness of thyroid disease by writing about her experiences and investigating an infamous incident in Hoosier history. Carol Gray, the author of “Wow, Your Mom Really is Crazy: A Complete Guide to Coping with Thyroid Disease: Stress, Weight Loss Tips, and More,” was diagnosed with thyroid disease seven years ago. She characterizes the disease as one that clouds the mind and as one that people don’t realize greatly impacts mental health. “Your brain is not functioning well,” she said. After receiving treatment, Gray turned to social media to see how others cope with the same things she was going through. She said many people feel like they’re crazy and doctors don’t always talk about other symptoms besides weight gain. Gray started blogging about the issue to get her mind off of the loss of her dad and eventually set out to write a book about coping with thyroid and autoimmune disease that delivered tips without being dry or boring after finding out about the people in the community. “I want people to understand, again, there are mental symptoms that accompany thyroid disease,” she said. She said that depression, a symptom of thyroid disease, isn’t talked about because of the stigma attached to it. “Once you get treated those symptoms subside,” she said. Her research led her to an article about Judy Kirby – a Hoosier who was sentenced to 215 years in prison after going down the wrong side of the highway. The resulting car wreck killed seven people. The article begged the question: Can you blame thyroid disease for killing someone? Gray continued researching and said the defense for Kirby did indeed use mismanaged thyroid disease as an argument. Over time, Gray developed a friendship
Gray with Kirby while working with her and asking questions about coping with thyroid disease in prison. She even visited the site where the accident occurred. Her experiences warranted her to write a second book that tells Kirby’s story. Gray said Kirby even gave her access to her transcripts. “Wow, Your Mom Really is Crazy: A Complete Guide to Coping with Thyroid Disease: Stress, Weight Loss Tips, and More” is available on Amazon.com in paperback and on Kindle. For more on Gray and her experiences, visit her blog, crazythyroidlady.blogspot.com.

Government Fishers to become a second class city COMMUNITY
By Dan Domsic • firstname.lastname@example.org
After years of battling inside and outside courts, City Yes clinched victory last week with the support 20,051 Fishers residents that voted yes on Question Two. A total of 23,483 voters said no to the reorganization question. “I’m really happy for the community of Fishers,” City Yes Chairman Doug Allman said. “I’m happy that we have an intelligent group that deciphered a very complicated issue and made the decision intelligently.” “That’s what the voters decided, and I respect that decision,” Fishers Town Council President Scott Faultless said. City officials will be elected in 2015 and will take office in 2016, according to Faultless. City Yes member Greg Purvis said it’s possible to have city officials voted on in the 2014 general election. “My first reaction was (I was) a bit surprised, but it is what it is,” Citizens to Reorganize Fishers Chairman Wayne M. Crane said. “I have to respect the process.” As the election results came in last Tuesday night, Allman and Crane would not or could not cast a prediction of who might be the first elected mayor of Fishers. “It feels surreal,” Allman said. Crane said he sees several individuals on and off of town council as good candidates, and in general isn’t sure of what he wants to do in
terms of public service. “I have to do some soul searching,” he said. “I have no idea what my next move is at this point in time. I would like to serve, but I have to evaluate and make sure that I feel the benefits will outweigh the costs.” He had strong words for the campaigning done and personal attacks. “I think the personal attacks on my integrity and credibility have been in error,” Crane said, “and they’ve been offensive and hurtful. But I do respect the process.” Faultless said that thoughts on who the mayor might be hadn’t occurred to him. “The transition is in the hands of the town council,” Purvis said, “and I would like to work with them to make sure it goes smoothly.” The future holds an election that will result in an elected mayor, but the question of unincorporated Fall Creek Township’s annexation hangs in the air. Allman said he doesn’t believe it will happen in the near future, but he does believe if a winwin scenario is presented to both sides, annexation could be possible. Crane said he feels bad for unincorporated voters because some of their property rights would have been preserved in reorganization, while an annexation would put them under the city’s laws. “Annexation will happen soon,” he said. Purvis said, “I hope we can all pull together in the transition and be effective in the future.”

Good Samaritan Network embarks on mission to help more than 18,000 people, families this holiday season By Dan Domsic • firstname.lastname@example.org This holiday season one charitable group is embarking on a herculean task: helping more than 18,000 Hamilton County residents and their families in need have a holiday experience. Good Samaritan Network isn’t new to Hamilton County. Nancy Chance, the group’s executive director, started assisting families with their holiday needs in 1980. She said in that first year that 397 families were helped during holiday assistance programs. According to Chance, food pantries have seen increased numbers of middle-class families using their services, which will likely put the number of those participating in Good Samaritan’s programs closer to 20,000. The organization started ramping up its efforts with the holiday-assistance programs this week and plans to distribute baskets, as well as extra items from Gleaners Food Bank, on Nov. 17. This month and the next, Good Samaritan will provide families with baskets, free Thanksgiving dinners and a major program in December that Chance said people in Hamilton County will camp out for.
What Good Samaritan needs this holiday season: • New clothes for older kids (up to age 15) • Traditional kids’ toys • Volunteers • Cash donations
Addressing a need Troy Halsell, executive director of the Noblesville Housing Authority, knows how staggering the number of people Good Samaritan helps is and emphasizes the importance of family time. “…Having meals together is a key component,” he said. “Good Samaritan is there to help them with that.” The authority distributes applications to its clients for the assistance programs, which is how the network tracks and registers the families it helps thduring this season. Halsell could not give an estimation of how many people the authority refers to Good Samaritan, but he said it happens on a weekly basis. The folks at Fishers Freedom Festival contribute to and work with Good Samaritan on different programs. Food collected at drives at Oktoberfest and Christmas in October was donated to the network. “I don’t know how she (Chance) can work her full-time job at (Riverview Hospital) and do all she does for the county,” said Jennifer Kehl, executive director of Fishers Freedom Festival. Kehl said she encourages those who cannot donate items or money to donate their time to Good Samaritan. Chance said families are welcome to volunteer with Good Samaritan, even the young ones.
Logistics and needs Of the families that sign up with Good Samaritan, Chance said not one will be turned away. “Logistics is huge,” she said. “You have no idea.” In the past, the Thanksgiving dinner events cost the nonprofit between $10,000 and $12,000. Because the event is expanding to Sheridan Elementary School, Chance believes the bill is going to look like $16,000. That’s just Thanksgiving dinner, which is also delivered by www.currentinfishers.com
Chance works out of her Good Samaritan office. sponsor families to those who can’t get out of the house. Chance sees the “gut-wrenching” reality of what some families go through in Hamilton County on Dec. 8. She said families camp out the night before to ensure that they won’t miss out on one of the only opportunities they have to give their kids a Christmas. Those who were referred to the program receive food, clothes and toys at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds. Chance said the phenomenon caught on in the past four or five years, pointing to the ailing economy. She even tries convincing campers, huddled under blankets or with portable heaters, to go home. They refuse. “They’re afraid they’re going to miss the only opportunity they have to give Christmas to their kids,” she said, “and it’s real. I mean, you can see it on their faces.” Good Samaritan will continue helping people through Dec. 24, and sometimes even on Christmas day. Chance said no one gets turned away. To pull it off, 3,000 volunteers will have donated their time by the end of the year, with 2,000 working on Christmas distribution alone. There’s some overlap between the numbers, Chance admits, but she said that’s how many physical bodies are needed to make it happen. “If it wasn’t for the good people in the community and donors, we wouldn’t be able to make it happen,” Chance said. “We struggle every day to meet the needs.” Visit gsnlive.org to sign up to volunteer or to make donations.

Beyond black and white It is our position that community diversity is more than a black and white issue. While the numbers as a whole may pale in comparison to Caucasians inhabiting the area, our community is slowly but surely becoming more diverse than ever before welcoming dozens of nationalities. Hamilton County is now home to one of the largest populations of Indian and Asian Americans in the state. In addition to simply interacting with one another, exhibits such as the upcoming, Beyond Bollywood, also help to gain an understanding of one another’s heritage and values. Beyond Bollywood – Indian Americans Shape the Nation is a groundbreaking exhibit exploring the vibrant heritage, daily experience, and diverse political, professional and cultural contributions of Indian immigrants and their descendants to shaping the United States. The exhibit is being organized by the Indian American Heritage Project of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program. The organizers are searching for Indian Americans to be a part of the collective storytelling by sharing photos and stories. The exhibit opens in late 2013 at the National Museum of Natural History. To learn more about this project, visit www.apa.si.edu.

Perhaps there’s a silver lining out there
The tough questions
Commentary by Terry Anker
“Daddy, what’s rape?” queried the little girl. This kind of interrogatory sends chills down a parent’s spine. Not only is one concerned about what might have precipitated the attention of the child but one is also maddened by the reality of a world where someone so tender is exposed to something so brutal. No doubt in a world of instant communication, few are spared the spillover effect from a constant and uncensored stream of information. We can rage against media which brings this into our homes without concern for context. A parent with less than stellar remote control skills, even if attentive, might let some nastiness slip through. Most recently the point was illustrated by a colossally ineloquent pro-life expression from a candidate for high office. Likely referring to the life that comes as a consequence of the rape, the hapless soul actually said “it is something that God intended to happen.” Does anyone, including the speaker, really believe that God intends rape? I
certainly hope not. With my own somewhat older kids (middle and high school), we were able to discuss whether a friend of theirs who may have been originally conceived through the violent act is inferior to a person begat in love. In our own family straw poll, we unanimously believed that each was valued the same in the eyes of God. On the more thorny issue, our youngest wondered how such a violent act was even possible. His innocence contrasted the searing reality of anger and dominance. Some people, I suggested to him, have the need to intimidate and control others. It makes them feel powerful, I continued. While words failed me to further explain, he rescued me by observing – those people who do that are just dumb. Perhaps, I thought, but they are certainly broken.

"Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it." - Georger Orwell Current in Fishers
The re-election of President Barack Obama should not be confused with a mandate. His 2.2-percent (as of press time) margin of victory tells us that the majority of voters missed the point: The guy can’t lead. Were he a leader, he would have righted the ship in his first term. Instead, he made matters left for him by George Bush only worse. Back in 2008, Obama became our “accidental president.” We were a nation gripped with fear after eight years of Bush. It’s proof that success in life, and especially in politics, is all about timing. With all his missteps on many matters domestic and foreign, it stunned us to see him be granted four more years. Back in ’08, there was the financial free-fall and a destroyed Republican brand, among other ills. Right place, right time. Now, we’ve seen his socalled plan, which he executed his first two years and much to the detriment of the nation. We know the path down which he is trying to lead us. It’s a dangerous one, we believe. We don’t see Obama accomplishing what he wants to, because he has shown he cannot inspire or unite, and that’s what true leadership demands. It also demands full disclosure and transparency. The Bengahzi horror is, in our opinion, as unforgiveable as the shroud of secrecy the White House tried to cast over it. That’s leadership? With the coming gridlock in Congress, we expect not much of anything to improve. Our hope, because of that, is that his vision for America will be curtailed. That is the best for which we can hope at this point. So, in the end, Obama’s leadership deficit now perhaps becomes our ally. ••• Actors Theatre of Indiana has a gem of a show in “Route 66” – and we urge you to go see it.

Opinion It’s beginning to look a lot like hectic VIEWS
Commentary by Dan Domsic
I’m looking forward to the holiday season. And unlike the retail stores, I plan to fully celebrate all of the holidays. That means I don’t skip Thanksgiving. Since it’s holiday season, I, as well as the rest of the Current team, have entered the land of special sections and early deadlines. We know it’s going to be tough and have a lot of names to call it, and “busy season” is probably most appropriate. Probably “the ninth circle of hell,” too, but that’s subjective and dependent on whom you talk to. However, it’s all mitigated by big payoffs. It isn’t easy to describe the rush that is beating a deadline. The feeling is somewhere between finding a $5 bill in that pair of jeans you haven’t worn in a while and the last day of school. You either find time you didn’t realize you had or can take a deep breath of relief before the whole process starts over again. It’s similar for the most part to that whole last-day-of-school feeling, except there’s a lot more responsibility, and a lot less time to complain about minutiae. Don’t get me wrong, there’s complaining – just not time for it. I’m excited to see Fishers transform during the holidays. I’ve only known Region winters and the isolation of the Butler Bubble. That’s
given me experience with the following: bad roads, people forgetting how to drive, people believing four-wheel drive makes their F-150 as tough as an M1A1 Abrams tank, feeling sorry for those people when they realize how wrong they are, beautiful Christmas lights, icepocalypses, blizzards, cancelled classes, the importance of salt trucks and snow plows and the true value of a good hat and decent pair of gloves. I feel like downtown Fishers is going to look pretty picturesque with snow on the ground, and it’ll be something I’ll enjoy. I’m also looking forward to heading back to the Region for family gatherings. I’ll probably curse myself for saying all of this the first time I’m in a rush and forget that I have to de-ice my car in the morning. Stay warm out there. A few brief updates: Thank you to everyone who applied for the slice-of-life column. I’ll be contacting the newest columnist soon. Apologies for how long it’s taken, but that whole referenda thing got in the way.

Not so bad after all
Commentary by Danielle Wilson
With all the chaos of Superstorm Sandy, I can’t help but think how glad I am to live in Indiana. And that’s saying something, as I am not a native Hoosier. In fact, 15 years ago I had a terrible fight with my husband for dragging me to this, and I quote, “Godforsaken hellhole.” (Turned out I was six weeks pregnant and raging with hormones. Oops. Sorry, Doo!) The point is, people, I have come to appreciate this fine state for many reasons, not the least of which is the absence of hurricane-blizzards. Indiana may be lacking my home state’s deliciously sinful trifecta of bourbon, horseracing and tobacco, but it’s still good for a few things. Like corn. I have never tasted more glorious corn than the freshly picked summer variety from Indiana’s farmland. Add copious amounts of butter and salt, and you have yourself a little slice of heaven. Sure we have one of the highest obesity rates in the country, but that’s not because of the sweet corn. No, that honor has root in another reason I’m starting to love Indiana. Three words: State. Fair. Food. I limited myself to a corn dog, elephant ear and large chocolate shake at this year’s festival, but I so didn’t want to. Turkey legs, fried Snicker bars, sausages on a stick . . . you can’t find that kind of high-fat flavor in just any state, ya know! www.currentinfishers.com
And how about sports? Sure, I’m not really in to IndyCar, and I could give a rat’s butt about hockey, but Indiana does have some pretty amazing professional teams and hosted a killer Super Bowl party last year. The college teams will always leave something to be desired (especially since the stupid IU men’s basketball team was ranked ahead of my Louisville Cardinals in preseason polls; whatever) but I suppose they’re adequate enough to give just about everybody someone to cheer for. “Boil up an Irish Hoosier!” Reason number nine for me liking Indiana (I’m skipping a few here, obviously, but I do have a word limit!) has only dawned on me in the last five years or so: We are within a day’s drive of most vacation destinations. This fact is especially significant when one has four children and a dilapidated mini-van with tenuous air conditioning. Plus, our more rural Midwest location will be perfect when the Zombie Apocalypse arrives. The living dead have to be easier to outrun in a cornfield than in a Manhattan street block, right? So even though the White River is more like a creek, and we are definitely in the wrong time zone, Indiana still is a great place to live. Peace out.

Keep on truckin’ Commentary by Mike Redmond
I once owned a house in Sturgis, Mich, which was extremely convenient since I happened to be living in Sturgis at the time. It was a nice place – three bedrooms, on a nice shady street, with the town’s only surviving elm tree in the backyard. And it had a heated garage that was massive – big enough for two cars, a motorcycle and various pieces of lawn equipment, with enough room left over for a big four-wheel drive diesel pickup truck with dual rear wheels. I bring up the truck because that’s what I’m looking to buy in the near future. And I bring up the house in Sturgis because its price was approximately half of what it’s going to cost me to buy the aforementioned truck. The question then becomes, “Are you sure you need all that pickup truck, Michael? Isn’t that showing off? Aren’t you really just fantasizing about making all your cousins envious when you pull up to the next family reunion in a 2012 heavy duty Manlyhauler?” Well, yes. Also, yes and yes. I need a lot more truck than I currently own because I’m doing a lot of hauling in one of my
Get fit, have fun, and enjoy your escape!
other jobs and my old truck is vastly underpowered. I need something with some oomph, and when I got my old truck no one was offering the Oomph Package. That was okay because I never really hauled anything heavier than garden supplies and the annual Christmas tree. Now I’m carrying actual freight and the truck isn’t happy about it, not in the least. In fact, it is currently expressing this unhappiness by not running. But I must admit the showoff in me likes the idea of tooling down the road in something massive with a big engine, clearance lights and dual rear wheels. You armchair psychologists can make of that what you will. I will only add that in my life I have also liked the idea of tooling around in a British sports car, so your size compensation jokes don’t work on me. But boy, is it going to be expensive. Two houses for a truck. That’s a lot. And I wonder if I can handle it without feeling incredibly guilty for being such a spendthrift.

Drop ‘til you shop Commentary by Dick Wolfsie When I read Consumer Reports, I simply want to know whether a certain camera takes a good photo, or whether a dishwasher will effectively clean the dishes even if I leave some of my wife’s baked lasagna on the plate. Instead, I get a great deal of unnecessary info that I really don’t care much about. Did you know that the camera strap on the Nikon D series is three millimeters thicker than the one on the Olympus TG-820? That the Amana dishwasher has only four rollers on the bottom rack but a Kenmore has six? The newest consumer monthly is called Shop Smart ;) and yes, that emoticon is part of the actual title. Honestly, I don’t want the cover of a publication winking at me. Playboy never winked at me and heaven knows it had good reason. It reminds me of a sign I saw in a supermarket window the other day: “Ground Beef.” Why is that in quotes? It’s really ground beef, isn’t it? Now imagine if the butcher handed the “meat” to you, told you how delish it was … and then he winked. My favorite article this month was “MoneyWasting Kitchen Gadgets.” This is a helpful Shop Smart; feature for anyone who has not yet bought a $19.95 pair of onion goggles but might consider them as a last-minute stocking
stuffer for Aunt Mildred. The magazine gives a poor rating to the Williams-Sonoma mango pitter but is strangely silent on the company’s avocado cuber, corn husker and strawberry huller. This month there was an interesting spread on the hazards of everyday products in your home. For example, aerosol hairspray can cause respiratory problems, although it helps if you don’t spray it in your nose. Also, cetylpyridinium chloride in your mouthwash (like Crest ProHealth) can turn your tongue brown. I’ve been using this product for years, so now every time I pass a mirror I check things out. My wife thinks I’m auditioning to be a guitarist with Kiss. Finally, I also discovered that cotton swabs can be dangerous. According to the otolaryngologist interviewed, these bathroom essentials can introduce bacteria in your ears. “Hello, Mr. Ear Canal, I’m a Q-tip and I’d like you to meet my friend Strep Tococcus.” I don’t think that really happens, but it would explain all the voices I keep hearing in my head.

Move the needle: Planning Commentary by CJ McClanahan
Do me a favor. Tell me what you did this past Monday. Tell me exactly what you accomplished from the moment you got into your office until the minute you left. If you’re like most professionals, your answer is something along the lines of, “When I got to the office I had 137 emails, 4 voice mails and I just dove into it.” Now, I want you to consider a similar question. If I asked you on a Friday afternoon what you got done during the week what would you say? Again, I typically hear something like, “It’s Friday already? I’ve been putting fires out all week!” Unfortunately, I can’t promise you that planning will eliminate all of the challenges you deal with each week. However, I can assure you that a few minutes of planning each day will dramatically increase your productivity over time. “But CJ,” you’ll cry, “I’m working hard every day! I don’t take lunch and can’t remember the last time I got home before 6:30.” The problem isn’t the amount of hours you’re working. The problem is that you’ve got a lot of activity and very little achievement. So, how do you change?
How is Child Support calculated in Indiana?
It’s really not all that difficult. First, get a piece of paper and break out your business into its basic components – sales, finance, operations, customer service, etc. Next, review each category and determine if there is a task/project/ etc that you want to achieve during the upcoming week. Keep this list near you at all times. Now that you know what needs to be done in order to have a successful week, make sure that you schedule time each day to work on something that was on your list. If it’s really that simple why isn’t everyone doing it? The reason is that planning for the future doesn’t provide us with the immediate response that we are so used to receiving. Unlike attending a meeting or responding to a customer service issue, thinking about your weekly goals five days in advance seems like a waste of time. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.
Often times when our clients first come to our office seeking divorce they are armed with loads of questions surrounding the divorce process. Child support is an important subject that tops that list of questions. Since 1989 Indiana courts have followed the Indiana Child Support Guidelines. The court uses a Child Support Worksheet to decide how much child support to order. The purpose of the Worksheet and Guidelines is to establish an appropriate child support amount based on the parent’s ability to pay and allow more efficiency in our courts. Typically, each parent completes a worksheet listing their income and other required information. Each worksheet must be signed by the parent. Income must be verified with documentation of past and current earning. What factors go in to determining child support? • The weekly gross-income of both parents • Costs of childcare • Costs of healthcare • Number of nights the non-custodial parent spends with the child(ren) There are also a few exceptions in which the child support amount can differ from the worksheet, such as extraordinary health or education expenses. Once Child Support has been established, there are situations in which it can be modified. However, there are certain minimum requirements for making such changes. There are two requirements that must be met in Indiana to petition for a modification: 1) At least 12 months have passed since the date of the last modification and 2) The reduced or increased child support obligation must reflect at least a 20% change (plus or minus). In order to be modified, the changes in circumstances must be "substantial and continuing". A job lay-off or job loss, for instance, is not considered "continuing" as the parent is expected to seek and obtain other employment or to return from lay-off. Child support can be a complicated computation. Remember, these suggestions are not meant to be legal advice. You should consult a family law attorney to discuss the specifics of your situation.

Hassle free flights, anyone? “Hear” for the Holidays Commentary by Tracy Line
For me, the worst part about travel is dealing with flights. Long layovers, delays, constant gate changes; it can be a hassle. So when I recently read about Legacy Travel Club, a company wanting to provide nonstop flights out of Indianapolis, I had to find out more. Christopher Allen, president of Legacy and the man behind the idea, recently filled me in on his exciting plans. Allen, a former ATA Airlines employee has spent the last few years putting together his strategy for Legacy. The club will offer nonstop leisure flights from Indianapolis to destinations in the U.S. (think Florida and California), Canada and the Caribbean. Flights would come with amenities such as meals, cocktails and free Wi-Fi. Could anything be more exciting? Allen notes that in the past 10 years, Indianapolis has seen a steady decline in nonstop flights. In addition, as airlines struggle with the economy and higher fuel costs, fewer flight choices are available, making it difficult to get from point A to point B. Allen believes there is a need for more nonstop
flights and is determined to fill this need. Currently he is working to purchase a private jet. He recently reached an agreement with a Missouri based investment-banking firm that will work to raise over five million dollars for Legacy. In addition, Allen is selling lifetime memberships to assist with capitol. Memberships range from $1,000 to $5,000 and come with discounted and/or free flights each year for life. Once the club is up and running, lesser priced annual memberships will be offered. Does taking a nonstop, hassle-free flight to the Caribbean or San Francisco appeal to you? If so, visit www.legacytravelclub.com and follow the prompts to let Allen know you’re interested. The more market share he can show, the sooner we can all get where we want to go in a faster, easier fashion. Tracy Line is a travel writer and agent, and the owner of Noblesville Travel.

Book early, book often – Saving a seat on an airline could prove more troublesome than usual. Fewer seats are available for passengers because airlines are using smaller plans in order to cut down on overhead for expensive jet fuel. – miamiherald.com

Mass transit in Hamilton County could aid work Commentary by Joan Isaac Recently, I was leaving United Way’s downtown offices at 38th and Meridian when a coworker ran by to catch his bus home. We were both headed downtown, so I offered him a ride. My grateful coworker said it usually takes him an hour and 15 minutes and three different buses to get home. It took me just 15 minutes. My coworker is among the 78 percent of IndyGo riders who have no vehicle available, 65 percent who are employed, and 70 percent of whom earn less than $25,000 a year. In Hamilton County, if you don’t own a car the barriers to transportation and self sufficiency are also considerable. Here, public transportation availability is limited to Monday through Saturday, and requires 24 hours advance notice to arrange. What about people who live elsewhere, but want to come to our county to work? Along with other counties surrounding Marion, Hamilton County is where many job opportunities are developing in warehousing, large scale retail and health care. But getting to those jobs, while taking care of any other daily needs, is not easy. The absence of a regional transit system connecting workers to jobs means that personal transportation is a must. But as one caseworker at a United Way agency reports, while buying a car may be possible, maintaining and making monthly payments can be a budget buster. She
recalled the struggles of one client who returned his car to the dealer to avoid repossession, only to face daily frustrations with the bus system ranging from missed appointments and lost opportunities to concerns about how to take care of his 16-month old daughter. Transportation’s essential role in self sufficiency is why United Way of Central Indiana’s board of directors recently adopted a resolution supporting legislation to authorize voter referendums for funding the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of mass transit. Odds are, this is more personal than you may realize. You may know someone like my co-worker. Or, you may be an employer with jobs waiting to be filled. Either way, the lack of a viable public transit system is not just an inconvenience. It is a barrier to United Way’s very mission: helping people learn more, earn more and lead safe and healthy lives. To use YOUR voice, sign the Central Indiana Regional Transit Authority’s petition or have your organization adopt a resolution in support of mass transit funding.

Grammar Guy On grammar and style
Commentary by Jordan Fischer
Question from Victoria Pennamped, Noblesville: Your article in Current stated that the word president when referring to the president of the United States should not be capitalized. Hopefully, you can enlighten me as to when the following capitalization rule cited from Warriner’s English Grammar and Composition, published in 1965, changed. The rule: “Capitalize a title used alone or following a person’s name only if it refers to a high official or someone to whom you wish to show special respect.” The example: “The President spoke from the White House. [When it refers to the highest official of the United States, President is always capitalized.]”
Answer: Victoria, I’d be happy to take a swing at your question, but I must warn you, we’ve wandered into dangerous territory: style differentiation. As any student of multiple disciplines can tell you, navigating the often-complex differences between competing style guidelines can be a nightmare. While I was still in college, for example, I once took a semester which included a law class, a psychology course, an English seminar and a journalism research seminar. Each of those classes required formal research papers to be written, and each discipline had its own style guide dictating how items like quotations and citations should appear. It was a nightmare.
To demonstrate the variety of style options, I’ve pulled the entries for your question from two of the more well-known style guides used today: The Modern Language Association (MLA) and the Associated Press (AP). The AP Style Book (often referred to as the “journalist’s bible”) states that we should “Capitalize president only as a formal title before one or more names” and leave it “lowercase in all other uses.” Wonderfully enough, the MLA Style Guide seems to disagree, saying that we should “Capitalize titles, like doctor, professor, and judge, when they refer to a specific person.” The brief and fairly vague nature of this entry is the source of controversy. Some read it to mean that titles standing in place of a particular person should be capitalized (see, for example, “The Gregg Reference Manual”) while others do not. That being said, I can tell you there appears to be wide acceptance of a sort of “informal U.S. style” in regards to this particular case, whereby the word “president” when used as a direct reference to the president of the United States is often capitalized as an independent noun. When it comes to matters of style, it’s often less an issue of right or wrong than an issue of what you follow. Jordan Fischer is an editor and investigative reporter for Current Publishing.

Beauty under foot
Commentary by Vicky Earley
While area rugs can be art underfoot, much is expected of this form of flooring. At the same time it provides a focal point in the room, an area rug is expected to warm the floor, create cozy conversation areas, provide a splash of color and be the unifying element that ties colors together. The beauty of a quality area rug can last for many years with the help of proper maintenance. • When first taken out of the packaging and unrolled, a rug may present bulges that will prevent it from laying flat. This happens when a rug is tightly rolled for shipment. The lumps should disappear in a day or two. If the problem persists, simply place a heavy flat object on top of it overnight. • A quality rug pad will protect your floor and secure your rug in place. Rug pads not only improve the life of the rug, but they also work to prevent falls by keeping the rug in place and unwrinkled. • Initially, there will be some shedding of the
wool pile. This is a common occurrence with any wool product and does not reflect on the actual wearability of a rug. Rotate your rug by 180 degrees four times a year so that wear is even and fading from sunlight is minimized. Vacuum, vacuum and vacuum to reduce fiber wear. Vacuuming prevents dirt from being compressed deeper into the pile. The frequency of cleaning varies according to the traffic the rug receives. Caked on dirt is difficult to remove, so remove as much soil while still damp to prevent this from happening. Stains and spills are a fact of life. Never rub the stain, rather gently blot it. Rubbing only forces the stain to penetrate further into the rug If all else fails in cleaning your area rug and you are tempted to break out the chemical cleaner, consider your fiber before you even open the bottle. A wool rug will require different handling from a synthetic product or other natural fibers. Keep your manufacturer’s care information handy.

Removing walls to open up kitchen area Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home is in the Lantern Hills subdivision in Lawrence township on the northeast side of Indianapolis. The standard ranch style home was built in 1961 and included a separate small kitchen, living room and family room. WHY REMODEL: According to the owner, “I knew I wanted to remodel the kitchen and living room. It had a dark, north-facing kitchen and I wanted to open it up to the living room so we could see the backyard. We had a fairly crowded breakfast nook for dining, and we did not want a formal dining room. There was room to just open it all up into a big great room. We like ranches, and love the neighborhood, so we decided to stay put and remodel to our needs.” BACKSPLASH DETAILS: The owner chose a 1/4” back-painted glass for her backsplash. They originally chose a custom color for her backsplash, but they ended up being able to find a standard color, which reduced costs. One key to the beauty of her backsplash was the switch plates. They matched the glass, allowing for a seamless look on the wall. CREATING NEW FLOOR PLAN & CEILING:
A structural engineer was hired to design the beams needed in order to remove the interior walls between the kitchen and living room. The homeowner worked with the design team on the changes in the floor plan. “I feel happy when I wake up each morning and come out to the great room. We never used to use the space, and now that it is so light and bright, we are in there all the time.” Finally, the flat living room ceiling was removed and replaced with a new painted cathedral ceiling. FAVORITE FEATURES: The owner com-
mented on her favorite features. “The Kohler manual foot faucet is one of my favorite things about the new kitchen. It helps me keep everything sanitary while I am cooking. I also like the quartz counter tops and the white cabinets because they help bring light into the kitchen.”
