Parks

Parks department prepares for changes, new school calendar By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Residents should mark March 23 down on their calendar. While programs run year-round, that date is special to the Noblesville Parks Dept. “The Easter Egg Hunt unofficially kicks off our outdoor events,” Parks director Don Seal said. This year will be one filled with changes for the department. One of the biggest chalSeal lenges facing the parks department is the school calendar change and what various organizations are doing to work with students during breaks. “We’re trying to prepare for the balanced calendar and how we fit in during the two-week breaks in the fall and spring. The two-week break at Christmas is pretty standard,” he said. “We’re all scrambling – us, the Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, AYS. What can we do with activities that are enhancing the school year?” The school calendar change also is impacting the summer programming and staff. Seal said instead of offering eight weeks of programming, this summer the parks department would only offer six. “Which in turn impacts staffing,” he said. “So we have to get creative.” There also are physical changes coming to Forest Park. Construction is currently going on to replace shelters No. 2 and No. 4. Seal said a grant was helping to pay for half of one shelter, which needed to be replaced. The other shelter was removed when The Lodge was built years ago. Reservations for the shelters are in high demand and the two will be completed before the rush begins for the space. “We have very few by May. Very few weekends we don’t have all five shelters booked,” Seal said. “This will help a lot getting the other one back.” Other changes include Fox Prairie Golf Course getting 60 new golf carts and a new maintenance barn. The city-owned course is also getting more requests to host outings and fundraisers. Assistant director Brandon Bennett said the exposure would hopefully turn an event guest into a regular player after visiting.

Important dates • March 23 – Community Easter Egg Hunt at Forest Park • May 18 – Forest Park Aquatic Center opens • June 7-9 – Nickel Plate Arts Weekend • June 16 – Fathers Day Car Show • July 4 – Fourth of July Festival and Parade • July 12-14 – Enchanted Forest • July 13 – Street Dance • Aug. 24 – Race Across Hamilton County • Oct. 25 – Community Halloween Party Construction work is being done to Shelter No. 2 at Forest Park. (Photo by Robert Herrington)

Seal said last summer’s drought and heat did not affect the parks department except in attendance at a few outdoor events – including the summer concert series and gold course (which saw record highs during the unseasonably warm winter.) Thanks to the numerous trees in Forest Park, the shade helped from deterring guests. “We’re in pretty good shape,” he said. “We weathered it pretty well. The September weather was wet and things came back. The golf courses are in great shape because they were irrigated.”

Finally, Seal said the parks department also was working with economic development and the planning departments on Midland Trail, which will link Noblesville to Westfield and the Monon Trail. “It’s a big project for the whole city,” he said. “I think they’ll get to the point where they’ll get some black (asphalt) down this year.”

Education

Strategic plan setting district’s outlook for 2013 and beyond Commentary by Libbie Conner Before looking ahead, it’s important to look back at the last couple years within the Noblesville Schools district. It’s been almost three years since a public referendum was approved that put into place our last strategic plan, our vision for efficient use of facilities to support quality educational programming. Thanks to our community, we have been able to expand most of our schools and build Promise Road Elementary School. Our elementary schools now house kindergarten through grade five and two middle schools serve students in grades six through eighth. Many of you asked at the time: What about the high school? Are we going to expand the current high school or will we build a second one? Last spring, we polled the community and you told us that you want one high school. Many who preferred two schools said they didn’t want to fund the estimated $120 million it would take to build a new high school. The community’s preference for one high school creates the base of the school board’s strategic plan for 2012-2020, a plan that was adopted by the school board in September. The priority items are expanding NHS to accommodate a return of the freshman class and retrofitting the current freshman campus to become Noblesville East Middle School. What would happen to the current Noblesville East Middle School building? We are working with entities interested in purchasing the building. We could see college classes offered there as early as the fall of 2014. The goals: High school – Provide facility space to promote academic programs in grades nine through 12 and accommodate enrollment growth. The big piece for the high school is to move the freshmen back to the main campus and have grades nine through 12 under one roof so that freshmen have equal access to elective courses. The high school currently enrolls 2,612 stu-

dents with 669 at the freshman campus and 1,943 at the main campus (677 sophomores, 655 juniors, and 611 seniors). An expansion would increase capacity to 3,200 and would provide space for the upcoming classes that range in size from 719 to 823. Currently, 3,045 students comprise the four grades from fifth through eighth and 3,117 are in grades one through four. Middle Level – Provide appropriate, equitable space for the middle schools to support the academic and athletic programs. We have considerable inequity between Noblesville East and Noblesville West middle schools. We can improve upon that by relocating the current east middle school to the freshman campus and expanding that building to accommodate 1,200 students. Now, its capacity is 800-900. Elementary – Provide sufficient space to accommodate growing enrollment and continue to improve equity among buildings. Our district’s enrollment growth this year was in the elementary grades. We need to monitor growth and plan for the eighth elementary school to accommodate 730 students and begin the process of acquiring land. Corporation – Provide space for support services and ensure proper short and long-term maintenance of all facilities. We have purchased an office building on River Road that will be remodeled for use as an educational services center. We are looking to relocate and enlarge our transportation center and relocate the maintenance center. We will provide information to the community as our school board takes the next steps toward implementation of the strategic plan.

Cover Story

Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear on the roof of HMC Screen Printing, 954 Conner St.

Mayor John Ditslear explains what the city is working on in 2013 and beyond By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com As Noblesville continues to be “one of the best places to live and raise a family,” mayor John Distlear also is working to attract new businesses and improve the quality of life in the year ahead. One of the biggest announcements this year could come shortly. While no agreement is in place yet, Ditslear said the city was actively pursuing an Ivy Tech Campus in Noblesville. “Ivy Tech is very interested,” he said. An Ivy Tech campus is coveted by several municipalities in Hamilton County, including Carmel and Fishers, but being in the county seat, which also is a growing community, is preferred. Ditslear said Noblesville would provide a full campus, not a satellite location. The school would help to retrain employees and provide muchneeded skills to others. Ditslear said the campus would not only provide better jobs to residents, but a more skilled labor force that would makes it easier for the city to attract businesses. “We get asked about our workforce a lot,” Ditslear said. “That

is important.” Noblesville is receiving assistance from the state. Gov. Mike Pence is pushing for better skilled labor and local state leaders are also working on grants and financing ways to assist both sides. “It’s very exciting. We are working on financing,” Ditslear said. “Sen. Luke Kenley is very helpful and enthusiastic.” Ditslear said Ivy Tech would provide opportunities to several groups – high school students, graduates and adults, adding that the campus also would allow high school students to earn dual credits, which should transfer to all other state colleges. It also allows college students the opportunity to live and work in Noblesville while earning credits, degrees and job certifications. The Ivy Tech Campus would be at Noblesville East Middle School, 300 N. 17th St. The building used to teach high school students and includes plenty of classroom space, offices, a gymnasium, auditorium and labs, and the old industrial wing is still intact and could house Ivy Tech's Snap-on Tool program. “All those things could work together,” Ditslear said. “It’s ideal for Ivy Tech.” If an agreement is made with Ivy Tech, it would remove one facility from Noblesville Schools. Looking ahead, the plan for the district is to move freshmen back into the high school (which would require an addition) and transforming the freshman cam-

pus back into a middle school. Ditslear said the football stadium and Hare Chevrolet Field would remain as school property and the parking lot would be used for events and the Boys & Girls Club. After a year full of paving and ribbon cuttings, Ditslear said there were no major road construction projects planned for this year. One project completed in 2012 was the final phase of Union Chapel Road, which now provides the city an opportunity to bring more businesses to a location previously unaccessible. “Union Chapel to Ind. 32 was so successful,” Ditslear said. “I’d love to have development fill in there. It’s planned or developed for businesses to have outside storage like Gaylor Electric and the Indiana Blood Center’s Bloodmobile.” The Corporate Campus is also a focus of new construction. Because of work done ahead of time, Ditslear said the area was “shovel ready” and provided the city an opportunity to grow, attract businesses and jobs, and increase Noblesville’s assessed value. “Success breeds success,” he said. “We’ve got some projects, people we are talking to. Its good things. We are starting to get interest particularly in Corporate Campus ... We’re really talking to little folks and some big folks.” For a list of 2012 highlights, visit www.currentnoblesville.com.

Other items Ditslear identified included: • Construction of Phase Two of the Riverwalk project along the White River will be finished shortly. This phase has consisted of connecting the Conner Street underpass across the back of the Judicial Center, underneath the Logan Street bridge, and up again where it connects with the pedestrian bridge to Forest Park. • For the street department, Ditslear said a new brine tank was purchased. The tank will make and store more of the brine/ salt mixture. “For snow (less than) two inches, it’s the answer,” he said. “It provides cost savings and is more efficient.” • The planning department is currently conducting an audit of the city’s unified development ordinance and working on the comprehensive master plan. Ditslear said the www.currentnoblesville.com

UDO was created to help establish the rules and regulations for development in Noblesville as well as provide for the administration and enforcement of those rules and regulations. • The city is working on a joint department project to create the new Midland Trail. The goal of the project is to develop the old Midland Trace railway line into a trail from Hazel Dell Road west to Gray Road. The city has an agreement with Noblesville Schools to use a small amount of land behind Hazel Dell Elementary for the trail. “Work on Midland should start in 2013 in one way or another,” Ditslear said. “There is an emphasis on starting Midland.” • The number of city employees is down 28 during the Current in Noblesville

course of many years. Ditslear said the decrease was due to attrition and a hiring freeze, which has caused departments to be lean and efficient while providing the same services residents expect. “We’re finding better ways to be more efficient,” he said. “We’re looking to improve on that with co-ops with Riverview Hospital, Hamilton County and Noblesville Schools – ways to improve purchases and cost-savings.” • While the city’s deal with Positron did not pan out, Ditslear said it provided the city with a “very valuable experience.” “The concept was great,” he said. “We really did everything we could do to attract them. What we did we’ll make us better.” January 1, 2013 | 9

Opinion

A toast!

It is our position that 2012 will long be remembered as a significant year in the life of our community. We have seen the completion or advancement of dozens of actions, large and small, with impact unlikely to be fully realized until generations to come. US 31 construction began in earnest – after years of false-starts and empty promises, we are seeing signs that one of our most important arteries will lurch forward in a more efficient and safe way. Grand Park is rising and forming a new heart where only corn once grew. While still much is to be done, the Palladium has matured from start-up to institution. The full effect of the opening of 146th Street has blazed a route across the land bringing retail and family to Carmel, Noblesville, Fishers and Westfield – soon to Zionsville. And, Current has grown too. With a simple desire to make the communities we serve healthier, wealthier and wiser, this upstart hometown edition has managed to compete against giant corporations from far-away places. Maybe it is because while we don’t think it is perfect, we believe in our hometown. And, we are proud of the progress we’ve made. Cheers to a prosperous 2013!

Fiscal cliff: More blame on GOP

Extreme balance

Commentary by Terry Anker

Instinct naturally tells us that more is better. If we have one dollar, wouldn’t two be better? If we can help one person in need, shouldn’t we push the limit to extend to supporting two, or three, or more? Even as many of us are feeling the hangover brought on by holiday spending, eating and revelry, we can’t shake the instinct that there is never too much. We transition from newscasters telling us how to prepare boundless, calorie-laden repast to those same folks admonishing us to get in shape and “lose those holiday pounds.” The sale of extreme workout DVD’s will skyrocket in the coming weeks. Certainly, we live a life of conflicting priorities. It is wonderful, even necessary, to gather with family and enjoy abundance by the hearth. And, it is wonderful, even necessary, to maintain an ideal weight to preserve and strengthen our bodies. But how do we find the balance between the two? Is moderation lost in a world of competitive priorities? Imagine this example. The cost of college edu-

cation, especially if on-going or extended, often drives graduates out of the market place rather than into it. Because universities have not kept costs in line with inflation, are kids “overbuilding” their skills for the market? If the market demand for traditional degrees is far exceeded by the quantity of new grads, is the effect a reduction in value (even as tuition and debt to the student and her family is ballooning)?  Certainly education is critically important, like housing, food and family. But isn’t creating a standard of university degree production that attempts to build an absolute egalitarian distribution where everyone pursues the same kind of training simply trapping kids, their families and our government into a thoughtless and costly spiral? If something is good, doesn’t it deserve to be unconstrained? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

By the time you read this, we all could be careening off the fiscal cliff, which would be a shame. The inability of President Barack Obama and U.S. Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), the speaker of the House of Representatives, to get together on a smart resolution (unless it happened after we went off to an early press run as a result of the holiday) is pathetic. While there had been some give and take from both sides, we view the Republican Party as the more dominant culprit here. A majority in the House guarantees absolutely nothing for the GOP and its Tea Party members. We view their actions as divisive and obstructionist. Our take: This hasn’t been about true negotiating – which should have been the case all along – but more about digging in heels and casting blame. It’s really quite sad that the two sides couldn’t come up with a solution that makes sense. In the end, the real and appropriate blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the American voters, for they are the ones who put these intractable, so-called leaders in the position to drive all of us over the edge. When will the voting public learn? ••• As your tax dollars are at stake every time a buying decision is made by the many boards and councils that help to govern our municipalities, how often do you wince at choices that are made? Are your thoughts heard? We believe they should be, and so we urge you to gain knowledge of those panels and the people that serve on them. Hold feet to the fire where necessary and make sure every expense is an indispensible outlay.

Avoiding the flu

Commentary by Danielle Wilson The flu has hit our house, and hit it hard. I left for work this morning with victims Two and Three moaning on the couch running temperatures of 102 and 103, feebly sipping juice boxes for comfort. Patient Zero has made a full recovery, but I'm certain our remaining daughter will succumb shortly, followed, inevitably, by my Husband, Doo. Will I get it too? After all, this is the first year in more than 10 that I did not get vaccinated. The only thing keeping the worry at bay is knowing that Doo has to deal with it all, not I! Is that bad? Is it wrong that I took a tiny bit of joy literally washing my hands clean of the whole germy affair? Are the fates ready to punish me with the flu-to-end-all-flus because I'd rather spend time at the office? Perhaps, but I like control. I need control. At work, everything is neat and orderly, and I'm only in charge of myself. This is so not the case at our house, especially when said house has become an infirmary. Any mom can attest to this fact: Staying at home with healthy kids is tough, but throw in worrisome coughing, running noses, and multiple wake-up calls throughout the night, and the days become downright torturous. Now that Doo works from home,

HCV thanks those that supported the organization

he's the one who must deal with the hell of flu season, though he has a much better sense of humor about it than I ever did. His latest email reads <Captain's Log: 2012> The infected are everywhere! I have attempted to barricade myself in my living quarters but my need for sustenance continually drives me to the commissary where I am forced to engage the zombie hordes. Eyes red and puffy, pale chalky skin, and a blank stare that haunts my dreams. A subtle but continuous moan escaping their lips ‘daaaaaadddd…. DAAADDDD.’ There is nowhere left to run … no one left to call … and they just keep coming! So yes, while I felt sorry for my sick kiddos this morning, I was elated that I didn't have to stay and care for them. While I do experience a twinge of guilt when my youngest cries out, delirious with fever, "You weren't here to hug me!", I can honestly say I'm a better mom now that I'm able to part with some of my motherhood duties. I'll gladly suffer the flu for that opportunity. Peace out.

Editor, The Hamilton County Veterans, a 501c notfor-profit organization, would like to thank all in the County that helped promote our programs during 2012 in support of all veterans and those on active duty. We were able to once again send care packages overseas and to deliver items needed by our brothers and sisters now in the VA Hospital. Our goal for 2013 is to raise enough money, before Memorial Day, to add two new memorial stones to the Hamilton County Veteran Memorial located in Noblesville’s Crown Land Cemetery. The stones will have the names of our heroes from Hamilton County that were killed in action during the current Persian Gulf War and those killed in World War I. Any service club, veteran organization or business, individual

or family wishing to make a donation should send their donation to HCV - Post office Box 503, Noblesville, IN 46061. All World War II veterans are urged to contact Wayne Long, Hamilton County Veteran Service Office and HCV treasurer, to get on our list for the upcoming honor flight to Washington, D.C. this April. This is a free one-day excursion to Washington to see their War Memorial, Arlington Cemetery and many other sites. Those interested should call 776-9610 to recieve an application. All honorably discharged veterans are welcome to join the HCV. Annual dues are $15 and we meet at 7 p.m. the forth Monday at the Noblesville East Public Library. Ron Wilson, HCV President

Regard for human life Editor, I would be curious to hear you elaborate on how “As a nation, we have lost all respect and regard for human life.” Our moral souls may be in decline, but blaming Hollywood is a cop-out. Parents should be gatekeepers to their children’s consumption of TV, the internet, video games, etc. All of this entertainment is not forced on anyone; parents choose to expose their children to inappropriate content because they either lack the courage to tell their children “no” or fear having their children think they aren’t cool. Michael Johnson, 46077

Wilson delivers entertaining column Editor, Finally, after a few years of skimming the Danielle Wilson column for common-sensical, values-centric statements, I’m pleased to report that in the Dec. 25 issue of the Current in Westfield, Ms. Wilson has finally delivered an article worthy of the time to read it. I hope Doo’s surgery went well and thank you, Ms. Wilson, for the heartfelt, family-values commentary. Ron Brumbarger, 46074

Season opens with killer comedy By Patricia Rettig • news@currentnoblesville.com

Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre opens its 2013 season with the famous killer comedy, “Arsenic & OldLace.” The classic comedy kicks off the theatre’s year-long 40th Anniversary celebration, and is on stage now through Feb. 3. Brewster sisters Martha andAbby are charming and innocent ladies who have taken it upon themselves to help lonely men. With a little arsenic, strychnine and just a pinch of cyanide in a glass of homemade elderberry wine, their guests are unburdened of their unhappy lives. Quietly the bodies of these socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers begin to populate their cellar, with the unwitting assistance of their loony brother Teddy, who thinks he is Theodore Roosevelt digging locks for the Panama Canal. Their charity continues smoothly until being discovered by their nephew, Mortimer. A theatre critic who is preparing to marry, Mortimer is shocked to learn the truth – and he only becomes more frantic when his maniacal uncle Jonathan makes a surprise visit! Made popular by the 1941 Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, “Arsenic & OldLace” proves things are not always what they seem. David Schmittou, last seen at Beef & Boards as Cornelius Hackl in “Hello, Dolly!,” returns in the role of Mortimer. Karen Pappas, popular with Beef & Boards audiences from her portrayal of the hilarious Mavis in the Church Basement Ladies series, plays Abby Brewster, while newcomer Gerri Weagraff plays her sister, Martha. Several more Beef & Boards favorites round out the cast with Douglas E. Stark in the role of loony Teddy Brewster, Jeff Stockberger as the sinister Jonathan Brewster andEddie Curry as Jonathan’s sidekick, Dr. Einstein. Another newcomer, Lisa Ermel plays the role of Mortimer’s fiancée, Elaine Harper. There are 37 performances of “Arsenic & OldLace” scheduled in the intimate setting provided by Beef & Boards. Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, fruit and salad bar, and select drinks. Discounts are available for children and groups of 20 or more. Parking is free. For reservations, call the box office at 872-

‘Looper’ • R, 119 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd Ambitious but not entirely successful, “Looper” is much more than your standard science fiction action flick. Writer/director Rian Johnson (“Brick”) has crafted a film that’s less concerned with the mechanics of time travel than with the ramifications it has on its characters. It also has one of the boldest casting movies of the year, with Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the same man separated by 30 years in age. Joe is an assassin, or “looper,” living in Kansas City circa 2044. The loopers kill victims sent back in time by a crime syndicate that runs everything in the future. Their careers are prosperous but brief – retirement comes when the victim who shows up to be assassinated is actually

themselves, three decades into the future. Unfortunately for young Joe, old Joe has apparently been preparing carefully for this day and manages to escape. This sets off a nasty temporal snafu, as well as pitting the two of them against each other and the entire looper operation. “Looper” is bursting with originality, but the movie seems to spin sidewise from itself and lose focus. Eventually it all gets tied up in a satisfying way, even if the journey there isn’t always a smooth one.

Business Planning to succeed this year DOUGH

Commentary by David Cain

Let’s say you want to build a new house. What’s your first step? Dig a hole? Before you send out a backhoe and start digging a hole, the first step is creating a plan or blueprint. Developing a plan defines what you want to build. If you didn’t set out a plan, how do you think the finished house would look? Like a shack or worse yet, something you couldn’t afford to finish? Regardless, it’s unlikely it would fulfill your needs or your vision. Like a poorly planned house, many organizations have good intentions but no plan and, worse yet, no planning. The result is a bunch of projects that don’t necessarily work together. They are fragmented. It’s the equivalent of people in a company that collectively do their jobs but don’t have a firm grasp of the direction of the company. They might do great work, but they are less effective than if they understood the vision and goals more fully. Solos in businesses and families cripple effectiveness. If you are looking to gain some speed in 2013, take a look at your planning process. While developing a plan might not be at the top of your priority list, there is real value in the planning process; the process of talking through what makes sense and how it will be accomplished, assigning that responsibility to people and revisiting and refining it throughout the year. In the words of Dwight Eisenhower, “Plans are nothing. Planning is everything.”

You can’t afford not to have renter’s insurance Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Christina A. from Carmel: I just graduated in December and am fortunate to have found a job that is going to allow me to move out of my family home. Is renter’s insurance something that I really need? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Congratulations on the new job! Now it’s time to protect that paycheck with a renter’s insurance policy. People like to make many excuses about why they neglect to purchase a renter’s insurance policy. “I cant’ afford it.” “I don’t have enough stuff to insure.” “Nothing is going to happen to my stuff.” The liability protection alone is really enough reason to buy, but let’s break it down. The first thing you need to know about renter’s insurance is that it’s pretty affordable. A typical policy can cost less than $200 per year. That’s less than $4 per week. It’s worth the sacrifice. You are also in for a nice bonus if you already have car insurance. Many insurance carriers will give you a multi-policy discount if you package your auto and renter’s policy together with the same company. The second thing you need to know is that your stuff is much more valuable than you realize. How much would it cost you to start over if you had a total loss? Apartments burn down and get robbed just like houses. Starting over after a loss like that is much easier when your independent insurance agent drops off a check to replace all of your things. The last thing you need to know is probably the most important. A renter’s policy protects your financial assets by providing liability coverage. Liability insurance covers you for injury you cause to others and for damage to property that belongs to others. There are many ways to trigger a liability claim, so I’ve got some examples for you. Claim scenario A: You decide to play in a recreational softball league. While batting, you hit a pitch back at the pitcher, hit him, and hospitalize him. The pitcher sues you, and your renter’s policy steps in to defend you and settle the suit. Claim scenario B: You have some friends over for dinner. Your floor is wet and one of the friends slips and falls and requires medical treatment. Your renter’s policy steps in to pay for the treatment. The risk of going without this simple insurance coverage is not worth the couple of dollars a week that you save by not having it. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services.

Play well with others – If you think you can sit in the cubicle all day and only concern yourself with your own work, think again.

Gather ‘round and gab

Hire Us Before Your Spouse Does

Commentary by Darla Kinney Scoles Recently, I heard about a uniquely wonderful way to celebrate a couple’s 50th anniversary – via the viewpoints of their offspring. With families set to gather over the next week or so, I thought it worthy of passing along so that the topic might be tossed around as relatives gather ‘round and gab. Each grown child of this golden couple has compiled the story of their childhood as they recall it, with some help and prompting from siblings along the way. The twist to part of their writings is that they are specifically including all those things they did and got away with – about which their parents never knew! Stating that “surely the statute of limitations has run out on that stuff,” the son I spoke with looked to his siblings for help with that task as well. He figured his brothers and sisters would probably remember what he got away with more than he would! So true. So, as this couple celebrates a long and loving marriage, laughter will no doubt be a large part of the occasion as they read about each child’s version of life in their household and all those clandestine things they never knew. What fun! There are so many ways to honor family life with words and remembrances as kith and kin reunite for the holidays. This one seemed especially sweet. Why not start that same conversa-

Should the attendees need prompting, simply do an Internet search of “family dinner table discussion questions” and find a long list of conversation starters. Who knows what might be revealed? Take advantage of these moments together to bond over times past and create a loving bridge to future years, with stories old and new. It’s not just blood that makes us family.

CARMEL TAILORING & ALTERATIONS “In addition to being a one-stop-shop for your tailoring and alterations needs, we make custom suiting from some of the finest fabrics in the world.” – KAY ZAIDI

Showing your home in its best light Commentary by David Decker Functional, beautiful lighting can’t be created from a single light source. To achieve optimum lighting for your home, consider using layers of light in each room. To help you visualize this, try thinking of each light source as a layer in a cake. Each layer brings a different flavor to the cake, but they come together to make a single delicious dessert. Layering lighting works in the same way, by blending together multiple light sources to create a rich and ambient atmosphere. The bottom layer of the lighting cake is called the “overall” layer or “ambient” layer. This is the foundation of the room’s lighting design. Chandeliers, ceiling fixtures and wall sconces fall into this category, and are intended to create soft illumination for everyday use. The ambient layer will determine the general brightness of the room. Choose to lower the lights in bedrooms and dining rooms to generate a romantic atmosphere. Or use brighter ones in the kitchen to make the room feel vibrant and energetic. The next layer of lighting is the “task” lighting. This bright layer illuminates specific areas or surfaces to help with activities like cooking or reading. Because task lighting is more direct, using more of these lights instead of ambient lighting can help you save on energy bills. Accent lighting refers to the top layer of your lighting system. This lighting helps enhance the 20 | January 1, 2013

room and create visual interest. You can use accent lighting to illuminate art or architectural elements. Accent lights are usually adjustable so they can be used to produce a variety of styles for the room. Put the icing on the cake by implementing decorative lights. This layer doesn’t necessarily add functional light to the room; it’s mainly there to complete the look of the room. Make sure these lights are on the dim side so they don’t overpower the rest of your décor. Light layering techniques are especially relevant now around the holidays. String lights and candles are the perfect third or fourth layer for your home lighting scheme. Dim the ambient lights to make your Christmas tree and decorations really shine. A fireplace can also act as a cozy lighting source. Have fun decorating and happy holidays to you all!
