Workshop helps Shepherd Community Local entrepreneur CJ McClanahan recently hosted ThriveMap, a 2014 planning workshop designed to help local professionals make personal connections with their goals. This is fourth time he has hosted this event. “Everyone has been through a goal-setting exercise,” stated McClanahan. “Unfortunately, for most people, this is a hallow exercise that rarely results in a change in behavior. Developing an emotional connection is the key to change.” This year, all of the proceeds from ticket sales went directly to support the mission of Shepherd Community Center, a Near Eastside nonprofit that is committed to “breaking the cycle of poverty.” The event raised nearly $30,000. McClanahan has been a longtime supporter of Shepherd Community and said he believed that this event provided a great opportunity to “get focused for 2014 and make a significant difference in our community.” For more information visit (Submitted photo)

“Gone” and “went” are both past tense forms of the verb “go.” While both “went” and “gone” are used in the past tense, you’ll notice that “gone” is paired with an auxiliary verb – “have” – while “went” is alone. Jordan Fischer explains the two reasons for this. Read more at

Divorce What To Expect: Holiday Parenting Time In Indiana, a majority of parents with existing Court ordered custody and parenting time arrangements stipulate and agree to abide by the terms of the holiday parenting time schedule as put forth in the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines, (“IPTG”). In any family law matter, however, the parties need not staunchly follow the IPTG holiday schedule and can agree to a schedule that best suits their family’s needs. That individualized schedule can be incorporated into the Court’s Order. For example, if there are longstanding holiday traditions that the parties wish to keep intact for the children subsequent to their separation, parents will often agree to such specific provisions and/or request the same from the Court when litigating the issue. The holiday parenting time schedule provided for in the IPTG “equalizes” the holiday parenting time for Mom and Dad over a two year period by alternating half of the holidays each year. The IPTG were recently amended. One specific amendment was to the implementation of holiday parenting time. Under the former IPTG, holiday parenting time took precedence over the regular parenting time schedule. This often resulted in one parent forfeiting weekend parenting time as it was the other party’s holiday parenting time. In such instances, the former IPTG required that the parties modify the annual schedule to ensure that due to that holiday time, no party received three consecutive weekends of parenting time.

Under the amended IPTG, holiday parenting time continues to take precedence over regular parenting time, however, parties are no longer required to modify the regular schedule for the remainder of the year should either party receive three consecutive weekends of parenting time. Instead, one party may now receive three consecutive weekends. The purpose of this modification was to avoid additional modifications throughout the year and recognizing that over time, the time would equalize. Be aware, however, that if you have a current order for parenting time, the IPTG that was in effect at the time of the order is still in force. The changes do not automatically apply to orders or agreements that were entered beforehand, so which version applies to your situation is important to recognize. Included in the holiday schedule are “Special Days” such as parents birthdays, children’s birthday, Mother’s and Father’s day. At Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., our team has the experience, the understanding, and the compassion to assist with your family law needs.

Forum addresses safe gun use

By Holly Kline •

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office issued 450 gun permits during the last two years. As a result, Deputy Mark Bowen wants Safety gun owners to know about firearm safety. Residents are invited to a free Firearms Safety public education forum from 7 to 8 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds. “The Sheriff’s Office has received numerous requests Orem for information on gun safety,” said Deputy Bryant Orem. “In response to the recent increase in firearms purchases and given the recent tragic loss of two Hamilton County residents through misuse of firearms, Bowen decided it was important to take the lead in educating the public on gun safety issues.” The firearms safety forum is open to all residents and is designed for junior high-age kids through adults. “This is the first time we have had an event focused solely on firearms safety,” Orem said. “All firearms owners, regardless of age or level of expe-

rience, should come away from the meeting with information and an appreciation for the importance of properly handling and securing a weapon.” According to Orem, there are four cardinal rules that gun owners can follow that will help prevent unintended firearm discharges. The rules are: 1. Treat every gun as if it is always loaded. 2. Never let the muzzle of a gun cover anything you are not willing to destroy. 3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. 4. Always be sure of your target and what is beyond the target. Orem also stressed that guns should be stored unloaded and out of reach of children. “Teach kids not to handle firearms without permission, never to play with firearms, not to go looking for firearms, and if they find a firearm not to touch it but to tell an adult,” he said. There is no charge to attend the Firearms Safety forum and no registration is required. Free childcare will be provided for pre-school and elementary-school age children. Free gun locks will be available while supplies last and gun safety vendors will be on-site. Firearms should not be brought to the meeting.

Yoga for seniors – Seniors 50 and older are invited to participate in three yoga sessions offered by Hamilton Trace Exceptional Senior Living. No prior yoga experience is necessary. All sessions will be held at Roy G. Holland Memorial Park Building. Read more at

‘A busy and exciting year’ Elections of 1st mayor, downtown redevelopment and construction on school academies take place

By Nancy Edwards • This year, local residents have witnessed some major changes: cover story the announcement that the town will become a second-class city, a new outdoor amphitheater for concerts and other cultural events, breaking ground for downtown redevelopment and the announcement of new senior academies for Hamilton Southeastern and Fishers high schools. “2014 will bring a lot of exciting things; it’s going to be a busy year,” Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness, one of four mayoral candidates, said.

Advances in educational infrastructure Construction of two senior academies, one for Fishers High School, and the other for Hamilton Southeastern High School, began in November and will continue in 2014.

“HSE Schools will see some significant changes during 2014 with facilities as well as academics,” Marianna Richards, director of school and community relations for HSE Schools, said. Construction of two senior academies, one for Fishers High School, and the other for HSE High School, began in November and will continue to progress steadily in 2014. “Installation of the foundations will take place during the early months of the year, but progress will become more visible during early summer as walls of the first floor of the academies go up and late summer as

From town to city

Residents will be voting for their first mayor, city clerk, three-at-large council members and six district council members. These positions will take effect on Jan. 1, 2015. Responsibilities of a mayor that differ from a town manager include the ability to hire and terminate department heads, execute the budget and set public policy. City council members will appropriate money and pass ordinances. The day-to-day operations will be handled by the mayor instead of the council. Those running for mayor include Fadness, current town council member Renee Cox, former town council member Walt Kelly and Marvin Scott, a professor of sociology at Butler University. The primary election is May 6.

work begins on the second stories,” Richards said. The academies will add a 1,000-student capacity to each high school and are set to open August 2015. In January, the school board will review a proposal for a three-year roll-out plan for a one-to-one computer program. The plan would include a timeline for implementation at different grade levels and plans for continued professional training, curriculum development and communications. Developmental skills would include collaboration, problem solving, and critical-thinking skills.

Developments are taking place in the arts as a result of the Fishers Arts Council laying the foundation of success in 2013 with the arrival of Nickel Plate District Amphitheater, mural art in Pocket Park, and art projects in Town Hall. “Artists have come out of the woodwork,” Jocelyn Vare, president of the Fishers Arts Council, said of the rise in art and musicians at the amphitheater. The Fishers Community Art Master Plan, approved The Fishers Community Art Master Plan, approved recently just recently by Fishers Town Council, establishes the long-term vision to facilitate the thoughtby Fishers Town Council, “esful placement of public art in Fishers. tablishes the long-term vision to facilitate the thoughtful placement of public art in Fishers,” she said. Highlights of the plan include potential sites for public art, evaluation criteria for art proposals, funding, installation and maintenance. Short-term priorities for 2014 include networking and engaging with local artists, partnering with a variety of local organizations such as HSE Schools and Conner Prairie and continuing the success of art in Fishers Town Hall’s art gallery. The chalkboard art in Pocket Park also will continue this spring with the phrase, “Someday I will,” which gives visitors a chance to complete the sentence. Vare encourages the public to get involved with the arts, whether offering talent or suggesting ideas. “Anyone of any age or artistic talent can get involved,” she said. To connect with the Fishers Arts Council, visit

Road construction

Construction projects will include the addition of roundabouts at 106th Street and Crosspoint Road and 106th Street and Geist Road. Lantern Road and Technology Drive also will be redeveloped. “It’s been a problem intersection for many years,” Fadness said. Significant work will continue downtown for the impending arrival of the Depot at Nickel Plate, which will include 15,700 square feet of commercial space, 242 apartments and 430 parking spaces in a garage. Completion is scheduled for late 2014.

Parks and recreation

A new park will be constructed at 101st Street and Cyntheanne Road. Cyntheanne South Park, a temporary name for the park, will offer “a massive sledding hill, mountain-bike and hiking trails, a fishing pond, and tree houses,” Tony Elliot, director of Fishers Parks and Recreation, said. In addition, Roy G. Holland Park, 1 Park Drive, will have a new playground and a splash park. “The current playground is very dated so we are excited to update the amenities and opportunities for safe, accessible play,” Elliot said. Riverside Junior High School’s baseball complex will receive a small makeover, with upgraded ball diamonds and the addition of a third diamond; the field will be updated by spring 2015. Ambria, a housing addition just north of 96th Street and Olio Road, will be connecting with M/I Homes to develop a trailhead and pocket park near the neighborhood’s entrance.

FR O M  T H E EDITOR Focus on smaller goals this year

Entertaining year ahead

Happy New Year, folks! We are hopeful, as we’re certain you are, that 2014 will mean good health and good fortune of varieties for everyone. The new year should prove exciting for our community, what with the various projects, leadership initiatives and development, among many other topics, coming our way. Current today takes a look ahead. What should you expect? What does it mean to or for you? Where will it build efficiencies into your dayto-day existence? We hope to successfully answer those questions. From our side of the fence, the new year will bring some modest but important changes to your product in the months ahead, not the least of which will be an even stronger emphasis on the visual presentation of our news content, a more emphatic web and social-media presence, and a more heightened focus on entertainment, entertaining and the things you do when you’re not asleep, at work, at your house of worship or checking things off your to-do list. With respect to entertainment, our special projects coordinator, Julie Osborne, is developing a plan to broaden and deepen that report, to speak nothing of the way we gather it. Entertainment and entertaining finished at the top of respondents’ ratings in our independent marketplace research, and so we owe you nothing less than more of what you want. It would be helpful to know from you how we can do better in that arena. We’re not so much looking for specific story ideas as we are a better definition of what you want to know and how far in advance you want to know it. So, if you would please, e-mail with your thoughts, and we will give them every consideration. Thanks for reading Current, and may yours be a very happy 2014.

The able parasite Commentary by Terry Anker It is a story as old as any. We put our leaders on pedestals only to promptly knock them off only to put them back again. You know how the rest goes. We invest in human nature, knowing its patterns, and then feign dismay as it plays out as expected. We alternatively love the best among us, then despise in them in manifesting the very qualities that we admire - bringing them in with palm fronds and carrying them out in a body bag. Is it the recovery that we seek? Is it their test of failure that reassures us in our own ambling attempts to find our way from outpost to outpost along the journey we travel? While the mere saying of it reeks of cynicism, we live in a culture where the weak ride upon the strong. We identify the best among us, attach ourselves to them as they move ever toward the top, ignoring our suspicions as we benefit from the view. Then as we surmount the very zenith, we summarily execute the

leader, the visionary who carried us past our own feeble limitations, and claim the summit for ourselves. In measure, it is part envy that drives us. And also, our own shame that we’d not overcome these self-imposed constraints to find our way without the insight and driving of the trailblazer. In our hubris, we assert victory. You didn’t do this (at very least, you didn’t do it without me). But deep down, we know that we did not reach success on our own. We lack the vision and perhaps the fortitude. So we scavenge, feeding on the hunt of others. Shouldn’t we instead admire and honor the leaders? And be inspired to lead ourselves? Is there honor in being an able parasite? Only in delusion.

Q U O T E   O F  T H E   W E E K “Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.”

- Napoleon Hill

Many of us make a list of goals at the beginning of each year. These new year’s resolutions typically revolve around losing weight, saving money, going back to school, getting a better job, breaking a bad habit or volunteering. We mean well at the time. But most of us find that the goals don’t last very long. And let’s face it: the dreary, cold weather and lack of sun makes us hibernate. We may work long hours, have families, work two jobs, and find that our goals are not realistic. The problem is that we set our goals too high. I realized this while reading an article on losing weight. The story recommended that instead of setting a goal of losing 20 to 30 pounds, try to lose a pound a week. The article listed ways to achieve this goal: exercising 30 minutes a few days a week, and swapping out just one fatty food or drink for a healthier one. Wow, I thought, I can do that! I had just assumed all along that I must hit the gym five days a week for an hour at a time, and replace all my comfort foods for a diet of mostly boring vegetables. We set ourselves up for failure by expecting ourselves to sacrifice too much. Volunteering may be something we want to do but find that we just may not have that much time or energy. I volunteer for just two hours a week doing something I love. That makes a difference because I don’t actually feel like I’m volunteering for a job and it doesn’t take up much time. Another goal I sometimes miss is making the effort to get out and be with friends more or join a club. A one-hour coffee date is very reasonable. Try some “baby steps” this year. See if this helps with your motivation and if it may lead to other small goals. Happy New Year! Nancy Edwards is the managing editor of Current in Fishers. You may e-mail her at

It’s yellow, I hate it, but I have more important things to address. I’m tossing the unrealistic dreams of spending quality individual time at night with my children. There’s four of them and only one of me and my bedtime is before theirs. And I’m burying the “cuss-less” vow. Dropping the f-bomb is funny and liberating and I like it. So there! Nope, this year my one focus will be on transforming myself into a middle-aged Katniss Everdeen who can hold her own in any situation, from a zombie apocalypse to a dance mom meeting. To that end, here are my New Year Resolutions for 2014. As always, feel free to mock, mimic and/or judge. 1. Gain pistol certification. I learned how to fire a shotgun and a rifle in the fall, but I still need proficiency with a handgun. Sorry Katniss, but a bow just doesn’t seem practical. Arrows don’t seem appropriate for ballet recitals. 2. Do 20 push-ups. Not the baby, on-yourknees kind, but the honest-to-God GI

Jane style that will have my upper-body ripped and ready to both defend against a feral dog attack and/or break-up a teenage girl fight. 3. Skin a deer. It won’t do many any good to kill my food if I can’t access the meat. My plan is to sweet talk Doo into taking me along on one of his hunting trips to show me the ropes. As long as I don’t vomit at the sight of spilled intestines, I should do fine. 4. Explore the art of crock-pot cooking. Today’s dystopian hero, a.k.a. Supermom, must be able to work full-time and serve an occasional hot meal that doesn’t originate from Kraft. I hope to experiment my way through all 30 recipes in my new “Crockpots and You” book, and possibly invent a little venison number that’s, as my mom would say, “To die for!” 5. Learn to whistle with my fingers. Every bad ass should be able to summon her minions on demand. ‘Nough said. My quest to be 2014 Hunger Games worthy begins now. May the odds ever be in my favor, and yours as well! Peace out.

identity. Every town and city is unique. Art in Cicero is different than art in Noblesville or anywhere else.” Officials estimate that 3,000 people visited the main campus in 2013. “We’re really excited about what we’ve achieved and learned in 2013,” McGill said. “We’re building the community around the arts in 2014 and really hope people have started to feel our impact.” Combining cuisine with conversation In its second year, McGill said NPA has several new events planned, including Stone Soup Suppers where intimate dinners are held with a group of community leaders – from artists and filmmakers to local politicians. Local restaurants will provide the meal and guests will bring the stories. “We provide the host, space and food. Participants bring ideas and eagerness to talk on the subject,” McGill said. “It gives people the opportunity to have thoughtful open discussions about art and artistic endeavors during the winter.” Hosted in the Nickel Plate Arts Stephenson House, 107 S. Eighth St., Noblesville, these casual evenings are designed to resurrect the art of conversation in January through March. “If everyone brings something to the discussion, it’ll be really good,” McGill said. Confirmed speakers include Chef Wendell Fowler, local and state politicians, local film maker Kate Chaplin, local artists, writers from the Polk Street Review, and Jim Morris, president of Pacers Sports Entertainment and former director of the World Food Bank. Each attendee receives a commemorative, hand-made soup bowl created by VSA artists. Reservations are required for this arts fundraiser and cost $50 per person. Most of these dinners will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday nights. “If we get more interest we may add other dates other than Thursday nights,” McGill said.

With 1,643 home sales in November in central Indiana, overall year-to-date home sales are up 15.4 percent compared to Real estate this time period last year, according to statistics compiled by F.C. Tucker Company. On a monthly basis, November 2013 home sales declined 9.4 percent compared to November 2012, a decrease of 170 homes sold in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. In Hamilton County, home sales are on pace to end in positive territory this year despite a drop in sales last month. • Based on the past 11 months, home sales in Hamilton County have increased to 6,202 from 5,277 – a spike of 17.5 percent compared to the same time period in 2012. • In November 2013, 326 homes sold in Hamilton County – 50 homes fewer than in November 2012. • In Fishers, home sales dropped slightly. Last month, 28 homes sold, a decrease of

one home compared to November 2012. • As the market continues to stabilize in Fishers, year-to-date sales prices have increased 6.1 percent. In November 2013, the overall average sales price was $186,585 – up $10,680 from November 2012. • As inventory tightens, homes in Fishers aren’t staying on the market as long. Overall for the past eleven months, homes have remained on the market an average of 67 days, which is 18 fewer days than the same time last year. As the year comes to a close, home sales are poised to end in the positive territory on a yearto-year basis in central Indiana. We also expect the shrinking inventory to continue driving prices up, contributing to this seller’s market that we’ve been experiencing in recent months.

You, too, can be a banker - One of today’s hottest investments, peer-to-peer lending, involves making loans to strangers over the Internet and counting on them to pay you back with interest. The concept may be a bit wacky, but the returns reported by sites specializing in this transaction are nothing to scoff at. What risks you face: For the average-risk loan on Lending Club, returns recently averaged 8 to 9 percent, with a default rate of 3.5 to 4 percent. By contrast, junk bonds, which had a similar default rate this year, were yielding 6 percent. SOURCE: CNN Money

Believe in yourself Commentary by CJ McClanahan There’s a book that will help you achieve virtually anything you want. If you have any doubt, set this article move the needle down, visit Amazon. com and type in any topic you’d like to master. You’ll be amazed at the selection. We (the human race) have addressed virtually every challenge. Yet, as you know, we continue to struggle with problems that have already been solved. While there are many reasons for this situation, I think there’s one that is often overlooked. Most people have a problem with belief. At times we wonder if we have what it takes to address a difficult situation. I was reminded of this when I recently addressed a business development team within a large nonprofit. The group was struggling to hit their fundraising targets and asked for my help. When I asked them to list their challenges I heard the standard excuses: the economy is weak, the competition is strong and they don’t have enough time. Instead of addressing these concerns, I tried something different. I challenged the group to rate their abilities on a scale of one to 10, with one being incompetent and 10 equating to them believing they are absolutely the best in the business. No one in the room rated themselves higher than a seven and most selected a six. “How in the world,” I wondered aloud “can you convince a CEO to donate to our cause when you don’t even believe in yourself?” If you’re struggling to achieve a goal, put down that self-help book and check your beliefs. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. You just need to execute. CJ McClanahan is the founder and president of reachmore, a leadership training and consulting firm, and also the author of “Thrive.” To contact CJ, or to find out more about reachmore, go to

dispatches Taking another look at survivorship insurance The relatively obscure product, also known as “second-to die” insurance, insures two lives, usually spouses, with one policy. Like its name indicates, the product pays out the benefit after the death of the second insured. The policies are typically used by affluent couples to pay for any estate-tax liability they may incur if their assets exceed the estatetax exemption amount. If the policy is owned by an irrevocable trust and the trust is the beneficiary of the policy, the death benefit may not be includable in the insured’s estate and is exempt from income tax. A single survivorship policy is also generally cheaper than two individual life-insurance policies. SOURCE: Wall Street Journal
