It is our position Hamilton County will be wellserved by the re-election of Mayors Jim Brainard in Carmel, John Distlear in Noblesville and Andy Cook in Westfield. After a robust discussion over the past few months, we voters ultimately made our choice last week stating emphatically existing leadership (at least for the largest majority) was on-target. We concur. Hamilton County continues to be a beacon of economic growth and distinction the categories of quality of life, education and stability. These men can take their share of the credit. All have made bold steps to position our communities to take advantage of a growing trend in population and wealth distribution. However, this election cycle did not pass without raising several important questions to be considered and resolved during the coming four years. Will there be a taxpayer reckoning for the spending required to realize the ambitious dreams of these leaders? Will, as the saying goes, they come if we build it? The world is a rapidly changing and evolving place – perhaps now more than ever. Therefore, we intend to continue to expect real answers to hard questions, we believe we have the right leadership for the job.

Training facility

It is our position the potential for the construction of a single law enforcement and fire personnel training facility by the neighboring communities of Hamilton County is welcome. Ongoing training for all of the law and fire personnel is imperative to allow them to keep up with new technology and equipment. The lack of a local facility requires the personnel to obtain instruction at other locations, and may involve payment by the cities to other entities for training.  The development is unique because it is apparent a genuine effort is being pursued to accomplish something uniformly beneficial to the communities, without the frequent tug-of-war which has resulted in duplication of efforts and diluting of the effects of actions in each city. A single facility can jointly use the contribution of funding and personnel from the participating cities, and all personnel will have access to the best instructors from all of the units. The completed center should be able to include more equipment to enhance the experience of the personnel because of the cooperation. We strongly support this budding effort, and hope the communities will throw their visible support behind the project as it matures.

Retirement not currently in Basile’s vocabulary

Salutes Our Veterans

This is some “retirement” Frank Basile is enjoying. The former senior vice president of the Gene B. Glick Co., as you might know, has been the acting president and chief executive officer for The Center for the Performing Arts since late July. Basile is a man of many passions, chief among them travel, dining, authorship and, now, seeing to it that the Center rises to the all-important next level. It strikes us that the native Louisianan actually is happily un-retired, if you will. He has the staying power – and the blessings of his wife, Katrina, a Realtor - to work consecutive 14-hour days. Too, together they funded an eponymous gift shop, which opens Saturday in the Center; that underscores an even heavier commitment to the facility. In his workweek, when it’s time to grab dinner, Katrina picks him up and they roll away to sample the ample gastronomic fare in the area – and then it’s back to the office. He could be off on another “adventure of a lifetime” in a remote outpost on the other side of the world, yet he has no complaints. There will be time for that. In the interim, it’s strictly about making the Center all that it can be, and our community should be grateful to Basile for stepping up and engineering the mission.

At Riverwalk Commons we salute you and thank you for your service.

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg ••• We’re confused about the Occupy Wall Street movement, and here’s why: We’re sure you’re well aware of the whole Solyndra scandal, which ultimately will cost taxpayers $535 million. Back in February, the Energy Department agreed to restructure Solyndra’s loan that allowed $75 million from a fund controlled by a major Barack Obama supporter to be ranked ahead of the government (Read: taxpayers) in the event of bankruptcy. Isn’t this the ultimate in cronyism? So, why aren’t the occupiers protesting outside the White House?

This November, we are proud to offer veterans and their surviving spouses special benefits. Veterans who sign a lease with our community in November, 2011 will receive*: • 5% price reduction for the life of the lease and we will waive the move-in fee • Assistance applying for Veterans Aid & Attendance Program • The Five Star Senior Living lifestyle you deserve

*Does not include levels of care services. Normal yearly rent increases will apply. Must take financial possession of your apartment home by November 30th.

Lifetime stewardship Commentary By Terry Anker Time may heal all wounds, but it wreaks havoc on infrastructure. For many years, Carolyn and I lived in a house built in the 1930s. Taking shape during the depression, the home was built at a time when craftsman were, perhaps because of a lack of competition for their skills, able to focus on one project at a time. Plus given then economic conditions, folks expected things to last. By the time we took possession of the home it was a senior citizen and things were in need of repair. We tackled projects in order of significance in an ongoing and almost perpetual way. We completed infrastructure (think septic) with cosmetic (think interior paint) imagining every good meal includes nutrition and taste. Now, we are in a house built during a boom time – the late 1990s. Builders could barely keep up with demand. When we made the move, we needed a house ready to operate without failure. Our youngest was in diapers,

business was busy and my mom had just sold her condo and moved in with us. We were not ready for a home of monthly surprises. But now, again time is asserting itself; and I’ve learned. Lifetime shingles last about 12 years. Lifetime windows last about a decade (if one is lucky) and lifetime-manufactured siding lasts even less. We’ve learned the lesson of the fine print – and of folks not standing behind their products. But more than anything, I suppose we’ve learned there is not life without stewardship. Even as we hoped to avoid caretaking, we are reminded humans consume: Carpets wear out and refrigerators fail after too many ice cubes. But instead of consumers, should we think of ourselves as stewards?

In Business for Over 90 Years, We Know Flooring!


We’ve learned the lesson of the fine print – and of folks not standing behind their products. We’ve learned there is not life without stewardship.

The tales of twins COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson I had the pleasure of participating in a twins’ panel the other night, both as a twin myself and as a mother of twins. Most of the questions pertained to the unique circumstances of raising multiples, but there were a few relevant to parenting in general. So I thought I’d share my responses with you: 1. “Now you’re back to work, do you miss your kids?” No. Nor have I ever. Even when I went back eight weeks postpartum after my first born. I do experience guilt, almost on a daily basis. I occasionally have emotional breakdowns in my car over whether I’m a horrible mom for wanting to spend eight to hours away from short people, but I can’t honestly say I miss my kids. Bottom line? I’m a better mom when I don’t have to focus my attention on nutritional lunches, laundry apartheid, and choosing which day we’re going to contract pink eye from the Children’s Museum. 2. “With four kids, how do you balance all the activities and still have time for family?” We don’t. We try our best, but during soccer season, we rarely eat a meal together. We even limit them to one sport/ class per season, but the schedule still

is out of control. Having kids in all age groups where in multiple practices and games a week are the norm, we are chalking up serious mileage. But studies show busy, engaged kids are less likely to end up on drugs or pregnant, so we’re sticking with the crazy. 3. “Do you ever get to spend one-on-one time with your children?” Sometimes, yes. But generally, no. We dedicate the month of January to taking each child out for a special “afternoon” of their design, like Wendy’s goodness followed by Laser Tag madness. If I’m not already asleep by 8:30, I will occasionally crawl in bed with a kid and read for about 10 minutes. I’m not super proud of this lack of parental attention, but no one needs therapy yet, so they can’t be suffering too badly. There you have it. Enough “Danielle Wilson” fodder for you to make it through the week, whether you’re criticizing or commiserating. Peace out!

When it’s tough to be thankful 79711_4204_IUHSAX_10.375x2.75_4c_CIF_Increasing.indd 1

COMMENTARY By Susan Bryant With Thanksgiving approaching, our thoughts turn to what we are thankful for. If you have children, feeling grateful for the many joys they bring is easy this time of year. The trick is to be thankful for the challenges parenting provides as well. Here are some “opportunities” for gratitude you may not have thought of. Kids’ “obliviousness” You have to appreciate the fashion sense of little boys who routinely wear their clothes inside out, backward, torn or stained and couldn’t care less. We’d like them to look more presentable but thank goodness there is someone in our culture who isn’t concerned about “image.” Consider this time when kids don’t care their shoes are on the wrong feet golden. Sibling rivalry Fighting, from minor buttonpushing to hand-to-hand combat, drives parents nuts. From our perspective (and Rodney King’s) we say, “Can’t we all just get along?” For kids, they are learning the dynamics of conflict. Can I stand up for myself? Can I reel in my anger? Sibling arguments provide the first opportunity to learn how to fight fair, say you’re sorry and

hopefully grow closer. Friendships can be fickle at this age. Blow it with a friend and they may leave. With siblings, there are lots of chances for “do-overs.” Hearing your kids finally work through a conflict peacefully on their own is a major parental accomplishment. Personality differences If you have a child with a personality very different from your own, understanding or connecting with them can be difficult. Their interests, abilities or even approach to life can make it seem like they were switched at birth. But when you come to appreciate your child for who they are, you open the door to feeling empathetic to a larger part of the world. Accepting differences in others is easier when you see those characteristics in your own child. An “empty nest” Congratulations! You have just successfully completed the monumental task of raising a child to adulthood! You’ve invested a lot in your child and, of course, you will miss them when they’re gone. Now you can give up the day-to-day operations of child rearing and watch them thrive on their own. Susan Bryant is a freelance writer and mother of two in Fishers. You can reach her at

Fishers gets visit from City of Westerville, Ohio By Jordan Fischer The Town of Fishers got the chance to strut its stuff at a community exchange event Nov. 4 with officials from the City of Westerville, Ohio. The event was an opportunity for each municipality’s counterparts to discuss job challenges and successes. Westerville is a suburb on the northeast side of Columbus, Ohio, with a population of around 38,000. Money magazine ranked it as the 15th Best Place to Live in 2009. Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness and Parks Superintendent Sean O’Grady gave a brief presentation on the town’s employee health clinic and a series of public works reorganizations which Fadness said generate $400-$700,000 in annual revenue for the Town. “The clinic was very impressive,” said Westerville City Manager David Collinsworth. “We’re struggling with the same issue: Double digit growth and rising employee healthcare costs.”

10/26/11 12:32 PM

Fishers Town Councilman Ed Offerman, Westerville Mayor Kathy Cocuzzi, Westerville City Manager David Collinsworth and Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness.

Both Westerville and Fishers officials said they plan for a reciprocal visit in the near future. Christa Dickey, director of community affairs for Westerville, said she hopes Westerville will be able to be of help to Fishers, particularly in some of the Town’s redevelopment efforts. “One of the things we have in Westerville is a very developed ‘Uptown’ area,” she said. “It’s a good mix of retail, government, and parks, and it’s along our main thoroughfare.”

Sand Creek fourth grader’s art to support cancer research By Jordan Fischer A Sand Creek Elementary fourth-grader was one of six student artists nationwide selected recently by the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation to be featured on the non-profit’s fundraising holiday greeting cards. Nine-year-old Seth Hutchinson, a student in Stephanie Seger’s fourth grade class, received a visit from Mark Neidig, the foundation’s executive director, who flew in to announce Hutchinson’s winning entry in front of his class and family. Hutchinson was one of 16 students in Seger’s class to participate in the foundation’s card design contest. “We’ve been hit by a lot of cancer over the past few years, so we got involved with (Kanzius),” said Seger, whose father and parentsin-law all died from different types of cancer. “We’ve been excited about what they have going on, and we thought it would be a good opportunity to get the kids involved.” The foundation supports ongoing research for the Kanzius Non-invasive Radio Wave Treatment Project, which seeks to target and destroy cancerous cells without the residual damage of chemotherapy or radiation. “I’ve seen how horrible the side-effects can be

Hutchinson’s design was of a little boy sneaking down the steps on Christmas Eve to peek at the Christmas tree and see if Santa had come yet, Seger said. The card is captioned: “Santa knows when we are awake... sleeping... good... bad... but some things can’t wait! Have a Merry Christmas!” For more information about the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation, or to order a holiday card, visit

‘The Fishers Advantage’ to connect Town, business community By Jordan Fischer The Town of Fishers will officially unveil tomorrow the newest tool in its economic development arsenal, “The Fishers Advantage,” a Web portal that will connect the Town with current, and prospective, business owners. The site,, comes in part from heated debates on economic development between candidates during the primary election cycle, which Town Manager Scott Fadness said he and his staff took to heart. “The council gave me a directive when I took the job to find a new economic development position that makes sense for Fishers moving forward,” Fadness said. Part of that new position, Fadness said, is a strengthened connection with the existing business community in Fishers. “We realized we need to be out and engaged in the business community more,” Fadness said. “If we can get our current business owners to be spokespeople for us, it will really strengthen our position.” To that end, The Fishers Advantage will feature statistics, demographics and case studies of successful businesses in the Town, including Nexus Valve and Clarke Engineering, and a

Medical Technology Corridor occupies town council By Jordan Fischer Landowners and residents from Barrington Estates voiced their concerns over the comprehensive plan for a proposed “Medical Technology Corridor” along Fishers’ north side last Wednesday. The Fishers Medical Technology District Plan, which proposes an ambitious, 1,101 acre commercial and mixed-used corridor along Interstate 69 and 136th Street, took up the bulk of the three-hour town council meeting between a presentation by Wes Bucher and Sue Harrison from the Town’s development department and public comments, most of them focused on the “Eastern Gateway” portion of the plan, which would be directly north of the Barrington Estates neighborhood. “We believe that no one has a park like this,” Bucher said, adding that the plan is the product of more than two years of work. Initial figures estimate the corridor would include 9.98 million sq. ft. of commercial space, 219 acres of residentially zoned properties, $122 million in road and bridge impact fees and $2.4 million in park impact fees – at an overall assessed value of $2 billion. “Sometimes it takes a dream to make reality,” Bucher said.

As part of a pre-annexation agreement between the Town and the Barrington Estates Neighborhood, residents were promised notification of any potential zoning changes. While the plan isn’t a rezone, residents expressed frustration at not being informed earlier that it would be presented to the council, although both Barrington representatives and Town officials noted they were active participants during the planning commission hearings. “Our intentions aren’t to slow things down by any means,” said Howard Goldstein, who spoke to the council on behalf of Barrington residents, “but just to get things right the first time.” In particular, residents were concerned that the border of the “Corporate Park” district came too close to their neighborhood, despite a previous movement of the district’s boundaries westward to accommodate these concerns. Bob Lehman, who owns the tract of land affected by the boundary change, countered Barrington residents’ complaints. “To reduce that land, which is high value commercial land, makes no sense,” Lehman said. “It reduces your corporate tax base.” The Fishers Medical Technology District Plan will return to the town council for public comment at the Dec. 5 meeting.

“Business Ambassador Program” which will connect prospective business owners with leaders from the local business community. Several candidates during the primary election debates criticized the Town for not doing enough to actively attract economic growth. In that regard, Fadness said the Town may have been a victim of its own success. “Fishers grew up relatively quickly and didn’t have to worry so much about recruiting economic growth as much as managing it during the boom years,” he said. “Now we’ve had to relearn what it means to attract and encourage growth.” Fadness said the website is one part of what he hopes will be a more dynamic approach to economic development. “We had nothing more than a few PDFs to give to people,” Fadness said. “We’ve really revamped our marketing. Looking at it from the end-user perspective, it doesn’t make sense for somebody to hand me a piece of paper. It makes sense to hand me videos and pictures, multimedia that can really help me get to know the community.” The Fishers Advantage will launch officially tomorrow. To view the site, visit

BeyoND SLeepINeSS:

How sleep disorders affect your health Sweet, sweet, restorative sleep — except it isn’t that way for everybody. You might miss out on a solid night or two of sleep and manage to rebound, but regularly disrupted sleep can take a serious toll on your health, and it might indicate a sleep disorder. The immediate effects of sleep deprivation are something all but a lucky few of us have encountered: trouble concentrating, irritability and daytime drowsiness. The health effects of missing out on your nightly ZZZ’s become more serious when a sleep disorder consistently impairs your sleep quality. Too little sleep, too often impairs your immune system and leads to memory problems and mood swings. Sleep deprivation can even become dangerous: Tests on driving simulators show that people who are tired perform as badly as or worse than those who are intoxicated. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration puts the number of accidents caused by driver drowsiness at 100,000 per year. One of the most common sleep disorders is obstructive sleep apnea, which means that your breathing is interrupted over and over while you sleep. (Other common sleep disorders are restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy and insomnia.)

“Obstructive sleep apnea has been linked with conditions such as high blood pressure, increased diabetes risk and even stroke and heart disease,” said Krista McNear, R.R.T., M.B.A., manager of the St.Vincent Sleep Disorders Center. “If you aren’t getting the right amount of sleep, it’s vital to get evaluated to ensure an underlying condition is not to blame.” You may be experiencing a sleep disorder if: • You often have difficulty concentrating. • People around you tell you that you look tired. • You need a large amount of caffeine to function. • You find yourself falling asleep while driving. • Staying awake during everyday activities, such as watching television, is difficult for you. A sleep disorder often accompanies other conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. If you think you could be suffering from a sleep disorder, seeking treatment for this condition can improve your all-around health. To schedule an appointment with a board-certified St.Vincent sleep specialist, call 317-338-2152 or 800-972-7869.

as a doctor of osteopathy, dr. sara Wine takes care of the whole family throughout their entire lives. and she does it by focusing on the entire body. “i do the same medical school training as my traditional counterparts,” she said. “But instead of looking at the human body in systems, i look at it as interfunctioning processes.” For example, if you come in for acid reflux, dr. Wine is more likely to take time to find the source — such as depression or anxiety — than to simply prescribe a medication. “medicine is starting to function more like this in general,” dr. Wine said. “osteopaths as well as mds are starting to realize that patients don’t just want the quick fix.” To schedule an appointment with Dr. Wine, call 317-415-6110. She is located at 11845 Allisonville Road in Fishers.

Coping with Vomiting

The Children’s Museum PlayFit

St.Vincent Sleep Disorders Center

at one time or another, every parent has to deal with a child who’s vomiting. most often, vomiting is not a serious issue but the body’s way of getting rid of something that irritated the intestinal tract. sometimes, though, vomiting indicates a problem, or can become one if your child becomes dehydrated. (offer your child sips of clear fluid often to prevent dehydration.) You need to get in touch with your health care provider or go to the emergency room if your child: • is vomiting blood or mostly green fluid • is listless or unresponsive • can’t keep down sips of fluid • complains of abdominal pain that moves from the center of his or her belly to the upper right side of their stomach, which can mean appendicitis Need answers to your kids’ health questions?

Sandwiches for football What do our favorite food, an English Earl, and the 50th state have in common? Here’s the story. The eighth Earl of Sandwich (John Montague 1718-1792) discovered the Sandwich Islands (now Hawaii). The Earl was a serious gambler who could stand for hours at the gambling tables. To

eat and not interrupt his betting, Montagu ordered a servant to put some meat between two pieces of bread, hence inventing the world’s first sandwich. Since that day in 1762, the sandwich has become the world’s favorite meal and is the staple of tailgating.

Ingredients: dijon mustard 2 tsp; balsamic vinegar 1 tsp; olive oil 4oz; warm water 2oz; salt and pepper - ground; large loaf of Italian, French or other rough bread; red, green and yellow peppers sliced and roasted mushrooms sliced and roasted; thin sliced polish ham or prosciutto 1 lb; very thin sliced turkey breast 1 lb; feta cheese 8 oz; fresh herbs like basil, parsley and or cilantro. To prepare: In a bowl, combine mustard and vinegar. Mix in olive oil and then warm water. Salt and pepper this mixture to taste and put aside for now. Slice the large loaf of bread length wise. Scoop out the bulk of the bread. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle feta cheese on sandwich Add sliced peppers and mushrooms, layers of ham and turkey and drizzle with a little of the vinegar mix. Place the top

crust on the sandwich and then wrap it in Fitness plastic Anytime wrap. Place a large iron skillet on top of the bread and press it for one hour. Place the sandwich into the fridge overnight. On game day, unwrap the sandwich and slice it with a sharp knife. Rewrap it and place it into your food cooler. At the game the sandwich can be placed on a wooden board and served with a pie spatula. In cold weather wrap each slice in aluminum foil and throw them individually on the grill before serving in foil.

I thought I was perfecTly HealTHy. When Don’s family doctor recommended he have a heart scan at The Indiana Heart Hospital, he was surprised because up to that point, he had been told he was healthy.

And now he’s back to what he loves... going to the gym, playing golf and performing at his local theatre. The most comprehensive care and advanced surgical options on the North side. The Indiana Heart Hospital on the Community Hospital North campus specializes in the latest technology and treatment. And it’s the only nationally accredited chest pain emergency room in your area.

DISPATCHES » Are your shoes hurting you? – Many women think flats are a safer bet than heels, but shoes that are totally flat, with no cushioning or arch support, can pose problems as well. Not only do super-thin soles fail to absorb the shock of your feet hitting the ground, but a lack of arch support can lead to your feet rolling inward, stretching ligaments and tendons up to the knee. If you start to sag through your arch, your ankle is next, and with continued stress it could drive your knee out. “And your hip then has to respond,” a doctor told “The problems go right up your body.” » Stop grazing – A few years back, “grazing” came into vogue in dieting circles. But a study published in 2010 found that people who eat low-calorie diets feel more satisfied when they eat three times a day compared to six times a day, suggesting that mini meals aren’t beneficial for appetite control. Eating constantly throughout the day increases

salivary secretion and the production of digestive enzymes that stimulate the gut. Instead, divide your calories around three meals and one or two snacks, going at least three hours and up to four or five without eating. The goal is to eat when you’re hungry but not starving, which reduces the risk of overeating. » New allergy shots on horizon? – New methods of allergy immunotherapy were discussed at last week’s annual scientific meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Potential new techniques include: 1. Intralymphatic immunotherapy, which involves injecting allergens into a lymph node. Initial research shows that this approach provides a longer-lasting and more effective response, suggesting the dose and length of treatment could be shortened. 2. Epicutaneous immunotherapy, which involves lightly scraping a patient’s skin and then applying a patch that delivers the allergens through the bloodstream. Accelerated allergy immunotherapy and the cost benefits of immunotherapy were also discussed at the meeting. -HealthDay News

Merging philosophy and physiology SPIRITUALITY By Mike Colaw A number of years ago I sat in a classroom at the Cooper Institute in Dallas talking about how the body works. As one of my professors was discussing the complexity of the human body, I became very aware of how ordered everything was around me, from the solar system to the incredibly complex DNA making up every one of us. With this awareness, philosophical questions started bouncing around in my head. What was true? Do we have purpose? It sure looks like life wasn’t an accident. I grew up in a Christian home like many people, but always questioned the difference between truth and tradition. I am a classic overthinker who questions everything. I have great memories of going on youth trips as a kid, and I can give examples of when the church really let me down. I still struggle with the modern implementation of the church, but I’m trying my best to find and provide answers to life’s biggest questions. After becoming a certified personal trainer, I attended Oklahoma Wesleyan University and studied philosophy and religion. It ended

up being a great time in my life where I could take lofty ideas I discussed in class during the day to the general populous in the gym at night. I had unforgettable conversations with everyone from medical doctors to construction workers, stay-at-home moms and mentally-challenged athletes. I loved the classroom and I loved the unique opportunity to test textual ideas in the real world. Ideas matter. How we view our world and ourselves greatly affects everything. Humanity’s greatest accomplishments and darkest days started with an idea. A few months ago I started a blog discussing these ideas, check it out at I am amazed at how many people wrestle with purpose and meaning in life. I am excited to join the team of contributors to this paper, and in my little corner of the Current, discuss the deep aspects of truth and how they affect us every day.

Say no to negativity COMMENTARY By CJ McClanahan Years ago, before I started my firm, I worked in sales at a local business. You may not have ever heard of the company, but if you’ve ever read Dilbert®, you know a lot about the office atmosphere. By 9 every morning, a handful of us would gather at someone’s office and list reasons how our CEO was running the company into the ground. Most of the time, it was really funny – just like Dilbert®. A similar gathering took place about every 90 minutes throughout the day. By 5 p.m., we had badmouthed just about every leader in the company. Stephen Covey would not be proud. Six weeks after leaving the company, I came back to visit for a few hours. I made the rounds and engaged in much of the same conversations. We laughed hard at the same jokes about how inept the company was at meeting customer expectations. Although I had laughed at all the jokes, I was uncomfortable with the negative conversation. I even had a knot in my stomach and was glad to leave. I was amazed I allowed myself to work in a negative environment for more than three years. I had even allowed myself to become just as negative as the environment. The truth is we are all a product of our environment. Although our ability to resist its influence changes as we mature, the environment still heavily impacts the decisions we make and the results we generate. If youe life isn’t where

you’d like it to be, take a look around and see what needs to change. First, start with what you watch on TV. Do you watch the evening news, a 30-minute barrage of negative information focused on keeping your attention? Do you listen to talk shows slamming every celebrity, politician, or sports figure? In other words, have you become obsessed with Lindsay Lohan? Next, what about the people at your office? Do you tend to hang out with (or recruit) individuals who complain about your customers, prospects and the economy? Think of your brain as a software program. The inputs or lines of code are comprised of what you read, watch and listen to throughout the day. Are these inputs programming you to become a positive person focused on the endless opportunities we enjoy each day? Or, are you becoming cynical, expecting bad news every time you turn on the TV, open your e-mail or pick up the phone? As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is choose to execute. Choose wisely. If you need some help getting the ball moving check out

DISPATCHES » Business climate ranks sixth – For the fourth time in as many years, Indiana’s business climate ranked in the top 10 nationally in Site Selection magazine’s 2011 business climate rankings. Feedback from a survey of national real estate executives and a review of Indiana’s economic development record earned the state recognition as the sixth best place for business in the U.S., up two spots from in 2010. This comes a little more than a month after Area Development magazine rated Indiana’s business climate best in the Midwest and fifth overall in the U.S., according to a survey of national site selection consultants. » Tax strategy seminar – Somerset CPAs will host a seminar on year-end tax strategies for contractors Dec. 1, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Somerset Conference Center, 3925 River Crossing Parkway, Indianapolis. Price is $149 for individuals. For details or to register, visit

» Women becoming less ambitious? – A survey conducted by More magazine found that 40 percent of women said they’d take less money for more flexibility. And 43 percent of these women (ages 35 to 60) considered themselves less ambitious than they were a decade ago. “Valuing time over money may signal a shift in ambition, and the beginning of a more nuanced definition of success, one that takes into account the many facets of a woman’s life,” said Jennifer Braunschweiger, deputy editor of More. » Visit the mechanic – Replacing a clogged air filter for about $20 increases fuel efficiency by up to 10 percent, or about 37 cents per gallon at current gas prices. That means it would pay for itself after you’ve driven enough to burn about 54 gallons of gas. An engine tune-up can increase a car’s mileage by up to 4 percent, or about 15 cents a gallon. On a 2010 Ford Explorer with 4-wheel drive, that translates into savings of about $5 per fill-up.

Three large cap stocks with fat dividends Annaly Capital Management (NLY) - This real estate investment trust has a $15.85 billion market cap and a forward P/E ratio of 6.52. The company offers a 14.67percent dividend yield and has an ultra low beta of just .30. One of NLY’s competitors is Host Hotels & Resorts (HST). In comparison, HST pays a 1.10 percent dividend yield and is actually estimated to go down in value over the next 12 months. NLY is currently trading at $16.36 a share, and is expected to hit $18.10 in the next year. Bill Miller’s Legg Mason Capital Management had more than $66 million in the company at the end of June. YPF SA (YPF) - This energy company based in Argentina is involved in the production and exploration of crude oil, natural gas and liquified petroleum gas (LPG). YPF has a $12.39 billion market cap and a forward P/E of 8.03. It pays a 10.10 percent dividend yield and has a beta of 0.79. Its closest competitor is Petrobas Argentina SA (PZE). PZE is smaller (its market cap is just $1.37 billion) and it pays a much

lower dividend yield at 3.27 percent. YPF is trading at $31.49 but analysts expect the stock will reach $50.89 a share within the next year.

Transforming a master bath from 1990 to contemporary COMMENTARY By Larry Greene ORIGINAL MASTER BATH: This home was built in 1990 in the Springmill Crossing Subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The master bath was the second bathroom of two to get remodeled. The homeowner noted “We decided to remodel the master bathroom mainly because it was old and outdated. We didn’t like the carpet in the bathroom. We needed a bigger shower. It just needed to be updated.” The homeowners weren’t fond of the large garden tub. “We had a large cultured-marble jetted tub in the master bath. When the kids were little, it was perfect. But our children are now 28 and 24.” FAVORITE FEATURES: When asked what they like most about their new bathroom, their reply was “Everything”. They added, “We like the big shower, the square-shaped vessel sinks, the tiled floor and the enlarged shower. We have heated floors, too. It’s such a change from what we had before. It feels like a spa in there now. The rain showerhead feels great. We have great

water pressure too.” TUB & SHOWER DETAILS: The old tub and shower areas were totally gutted and new framing for the new tub decking, shower and shower storage niches was installed. A new Kohler 60x32 Archer drop in air tub was installed with a Delta Vero brushed nickel tub filler. The new shower includes a combined stationary/handheld Delta faucet with a diverter and Delta brushed nickel ceilingmounted square rain head faucet. The shower area was finished off with a 3/8” heavy glass frameless

enclosure with brushed nickel hardware. FINAL RESULT: The homeowner commented, “Our kids came home to see the new remodeled bathroom and they think it looks like a hotel bathroom.” Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a fullservice design/build firm serving Hamilton County.

Clearing up a problem COMMENTARY By Dick Wolfsie A dermatologist in Southern California may avoid jail time by the skin of his teeth. He has been marketing a $1.99 app for smart phones that emits both a bluish and reddish light, which he claims will cure acne. Dr. Smith has sold about 20,000 of these. Now, ironically, he has a blotch on his once-unblemished medical record. Most of the experts agree the lights can’t hurt you, but if a kid is holding his Blackberry against his pimply nose while driving, he’s likely to back the car into a mailbox. No instructions are provided with the app, so one of the difficulties is knowing where to hold the device for treatment. Some of Dr. Smith’s accomplices, I mean associates, are thinking of adding a GPS, a Global Pimple Searcher, to zero in on facial imperfections. Doctors at Baylor University are upset about the apparent scam: “There should be more studies.” Doc, here’s one for you: Nine out of 10 adolescents with zits will believe anything you tell them if they think it will clear up their face. That is why I spent most of the ninth grade with lemon wedges and a heating pad on my fore-

head. Another researcher was equally concerned, noting: “I am worried about the teenager with open sores, because bacteria on the phone could lead to a minor skin infection.” Hey, I was just an American Lit major, but this is the last thing in the world a 14-year-old is worried about. The app emits 660 nanometers of light, which anyone with a post-doctoral degree in laser science knows can’t hold a candle to what a good glob of Clearasil can do. If you are one of those people who paid for this cyber rip-off, it still might not be a bad idea to rub the smart phone across your forehead. Maybe the smart part will rub off. Whether Dr. Smith can avoid prison is still in question, but he maintains he’ll take his punishment like a man. Whenever he’s asked by the media about doing time in the slammer, he’s directed by his PR people to say: “Breaking out is not an option.”
