Web upgrades create efficiencies

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com As technology changes and becomes a more vital role in the daily lives of residents, Planning Director Christy Langley is adapting her planning department to be cutting edge. Langley said a new permit management database is an overhaul to how people interact with the planning department. “People can apply and pay online and check on it,” she said. “We realize the world has changed on how they know use technology.” Langley said the database will go live at the end of June. “People can still come in. We’ll have work stations and staff will be happy to assist them,” she said. The overhaul will provide more efficiency for the planning staff and consumer. “It assists us in the field. Inspectors can access the system in the field. Now everything is going to be in real time,” Langley said. “No longer input by hand. With automatic field population takes out a lot of human error.” The planning department also is working on a

scanning initiative. Langley said 470 file boxes from 1974 to today are housed in the basement of City Hall. The files have been scanned and saved by permit number, subdivision and lot number. “They are all completely digital now,” Langley said. “When a person comes in asking about their house that was built in 1978, we don’t have to go to the basement and pull it.” Langley said the files will be available to other departments like engineering and economic development. “We’re excited about that because it adds a new efficiency component,” she said. “The city is more versatile.” Another file going online is the Unified Development Ordinance, where the public can access all PDFs. “There are 17 articles and it is very difficult to search. It’s kind of confusing. The city code is in there with intelligent search for words and phrases,” Langley said. “A static PDF is very difficult to navigate period. This is more friendly and searchable.” The planning department also intends to create info graphics with nuts and bolts of common procedures in March and April.

DVD Review “The Act of Killing” is one of the best documentary films columnist Christopher Lloyd has seen in a while, even though it diverges quite a bit from the standard format of journalistic exploration. By eschewing the modus operandi of the documentary film, “The Act of Killing” provides a unique and unforgettable lesson in the loss of humanity. Read more at currentnightandday.com

Interior design is about the big picture and the big picture works when it is the result of a carefully planned compilation of elements and principles. Good taste, on the other hand, is the sum of one’s life experience and one’s exposure. A person can be born with a sense of design, while the quality of good taste is gleaned, collected and polished.

Forum addresses safe gun use

By Holly Kline • news@currentinwestfield.com

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office issued 450 gun permits during the last two years. As a result, Sheriff 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 for information on gun safety,” said Deputy Bryant Orem. “In response to the recent increase in firearms purchases and given the recent tragic Orem loss of two Hamilton County residents through misuse of firearms, Sheriff 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-

Back in the day

rience, should come away from the meeting with information and an appreciation for the importance of properly handling and securing a weapon.” According to Deputy 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 said 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. Built in 1950, the Duke Energy Noblesville Station was originally a coal-fired plant with two steam turbines that generated approximately 90 megawatts of electricity. Cinergy/PSI decommissioned the coalburning portion of the plant and installed three new combustion turbines that run on natural gas. The old turbines were retained, but to increase the plant’s efficiency, they now run on steam supplied from the new turbines. Such exhaust heat is usually wasted, but capturing it with “heat recovery steam generators” to repower the old turbines makes the plant very efficient. In fact, the converted plant will be 40 percent more efficient in converting energy to electricity than the existing units. The total electric generating capacity of the modified station is approximately 300 megawatts. (Submitted photo)

Local high school students got a behind-thescenes look at state government during the 17th Luke Kenley Leadership Education Conference held at the Indiana Statehouse on Dec. 6. State Sen. Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) annually invites high school junior and senior leaders hand-picked by their principals to his Indianapolis convention. This year, seniors from 10 area high schools were chosen to attend. “I always look forward to hosting our community’s bright young leaders at the statehouse,” Kenley stated. “This annual event gives them the opportunity to talk to state officials who share their insight on scholarship, leadership and fellowship. It’s my hope participating students will

be motivated by the stories they hear and bring what they learn from the conference to their schools and beyond.” Students interacted with Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann and State Sens. Jean Breaux (D-Indianapolis), Mike Delph (R-Carmel) and Jim Merritt (R-Indianapolis). The state officials encouraged students to get involved in their local communities and answered questions about the role of public service. Students also participated in a breakout session at the conference where they discussed what they believe are the most important issues facing the state of Indiana. The list included the cost of higher education, same-sex marriage, Common Core State Standards, mass transit in Central Indiana and attracting young professionals to the state.

Tourism is becoming big business and Noblesville is creating new opportunities to capitalize on it By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com If you are attending local attractions or special events, you may have noticed a lot of unfamiliar faces. Part of that can be contributed to the city’s population growth; the cover story other part is due to the county’s popularity and enhanced perception as a place to visit. Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Brenda Myers said tourism is the third largest industry in Hamilton County with 11.4 percent of employment. It falls behind healthcare (15.4 percent) and retail/trade (11.8 percent). Finance and insurance was a close fourth with 11 percent. “It also has the second fastest growing rate of tourism spending among Indiana counties Myers with the highest tourism spending,” Myers said. “In 2013, hospitals dropped 7.2 percent, retail continues to grow at a 1.2 percent increase and tourism had a 7.1 percent increase. The three are so close, they could all change places.” The numbers come from a recent economic impact study that provides the HCCVB a benchmark before the opening of Grand Park, a 360-acre sports campus in Westfield that will feature a full range of championship-level outdoor facilities for baseball, softball and field sports including soccer, football, rugby, field hockey and lacrosse. “We’re already seeing full weekends on the calendar and navigating that is exciting,” Myers said. “We have weeks in 2014 where

every hotel (in Hamilton County) is booked. We’re suggesting people look into Kokomo, Lafayette and Indianapolis.” Myers credits a portion of that to Grand Park’s scheduled events, which are set to begin in March. “The tournaments are so large with 40 to 80 teams – it’s just huge,” she said, adding Hamilton County has more than 3,000 hotel rooms with 65 percent occupancy already for 2014.

Opportunities

Myers said Hamilton County has a unique touring product with “wonderful downtowns in Noblesville and the Arts & Design District in Carmel, the Nickel Plate district in Fishers and Grand Junction in Westfield.” “One community has four cultural districts. All four are beautiful and unique and offer something different,” she said. “There also are anchor alternatives like the Indiana Transportation Museum, Klipsch Music Center, the Palladium and sports not just at the Grand Park Sports Complex.” Each also offers different experiences at different times of the year. “There are so many assets. They keep coming back because there is something to do,” Myers said, adding that communities are being proactive about tourism. “They are looking for opportunities and ways to make it better.”

Economic impact

Why is tourism such a lucrative business? Hamilton County is ranked third for attracting the largest amount of tourist dollars in the state and is ranked second for expected growth. Myers said for every travel dollar spent, 92 cents stays in the county. “Day and overnight visitors spend $375 million resulting in a total economic impact of $611 million and an overall savings of $888 in taxes annually for every Hamilton County household,” she said, adding a total of $159.6 million in taxes were generated by the county’s tourism industry in 2012. Johnson Noblesville Economic Director Judi Johnson said the city is economically impacted by tourism in many ways. “Wealth is dispersed locally due to the vast availability of food

and beverage establishments which consistently continue to appear throughout the Noblesville landscape, and through varied shopping choices. Noblesville offers three large retail nodes – Hamilton Town Center, the Ind. 37 corridor and the downtown locally owned and operated establishments,” she said.

A place to stay

Noblesville has 313 rooms available at its four hotels: Cambria Suites, 13500 Tegler Dr. (132 rooms); Fairfield Inn & Suites, 17960 Foundation Dr. (59 rooms); Quality Inn and Suites, 16025 Prosperity Dr. (64 rooms); and Super 8, 17070 Dragonfly Lane 58 rooms). All are located off Ind. 37 with the exception of Cambria Suites, which is across from Hamilton Towne Center and I-69. Currently under construction is a Courtyard Marriott at 17863 Foundation Dr. The 92-room hotel will feature deluxe guestrooms, underground parking, a bistro and much more. Courtyard also has the first meeting and banquet space on Ind. 37 in Noblesville. “The impact of wedding ceremony and reception tourism is abundant in Noblesville due to our unique and expressive venue choice,” Johnson said. “Couples choose Noblesville due to its true historic and cultural vibe.”

Future

With the increase in tourism opportunities, the HCCVB is talking with Ivy Tech about offering hospitality and art classes at the upcoming Noblesville campus, which opens in August. “There’s a lot that hotel services and culinary arts do for us in the county,” Myers said. Upcoming events and initiatives include a countywide gardens promotion in June, doing a better job of packaging outdoor recreational opportunities and tying music packages together. 2014 also is the “Year of Arts” at Conner Prairie. “We’re reshaping how we do tourism,” Myers said. Johnson said the city works in partnership with many cultural organizations and hopes to increase its ability to attract even more tourists through future cultural emergence initiatives. “Let’s not forget that tourism and quality of life draw the type of workforce talent every community wants to attract and sustain,” Johnson said. “Young talent lifestyle choice is dependent upon cultural amenities and their desired location to live is based on ‘Live first, Work second.’ Economic development sustainability within any community is dependent on where talent lives and the choice they make ultimately drives the location of business.”

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP This legislation needs more teeth Sometimes news, after a time, fades so far into the background of day-to-day life that we tend to forget about it. It’s natural. We’re all going in different directions as we manage our work, home and social existences. Some news elements, though, bear refreshment for all of us. As we were headed toward New Year’s Eve, state Sen. Jim Merritt (R-Indianapolis), he of the overly important Lifeline Law about which we wrote much a little more than a year ago, has promised to introduce legislation when the General Assembly convenes. We like the way he’s thinking, when he says the state’s sentencing protocol needs to be more stringent for those found guilty of commission of a violent crime when using a firearm. “We can no longer tolerate home invasions, violent crimes, senseless shootings and murders in our communities,” Merritt astutely said late last month. “I believe we need to strengthen penalties against violent offenders throughout Indiana to keep them off our streets.” Prevailing law limits prosecutors and judges to issue an additional five years of imprisonment for violent offenders using a firearm during a crime. Merritt wants to make stronger the existing statute by adding language that makes sentence enhancement mandatory for violent offenders committing crimes using a firearm and increasing the additional fixed term of imprisonment to 20 years minimum. We urge all our elected officials, as well as chiefs of police and county sheriffs, to get behind Merritt’s proposal. And as for the Legislature, enacting the measure should be one of the first orders of business and a real no-brainer. In the end, we hopefully will have more of a deterrent to such violence, which, in and of itself, is senseless.

Act your age Commentary by Terry Anker Routinely we demand of our children – “Act your age.” In common parlance, it is intended to send the message that the youngster is somehow falling short of the adult expectation for development of a child of a certain age. In our house, we aspire that our boys have attained sufficient chronological maturity to expect that they restrict the practice of their ultimate Frisbee moves to locations outside of the house! Certainly, the damage inflicted by a 180 pound six foot tall 17 year-old is far more daunting than that which might be perpetrated by a 3½ foot tall 3 year-old. But is our expectation honestly connected to fear that the Frisbee match might lead to a knocked over Christmas tree or some innate expectation of emotional development tied to the progression of the calendar? Knowing of my own impending birth anniversary, a longtime friend forwarded a link to an online test claiming the ability, after one offers earnest answers to a retinue of interrogatories to accurately

predict one’s emotional age. In order for the outcome to best approximate correctness, the taker is admonished, one must answer all questions without filter. It is harder to do than one would presume. Questions that might point us towards a younger rating stand out and the temptation is to direct ourselves into the junior category. This impulse is so strikingly contrasted against our own young sons who work to appear emotionally older. After completing the assessment, the software returned a verdict. I am playing at slightly less than 70% of my age. Initially, I reacted by strutting around a little. How does one post this to Facebook? But before I could make the technology do my bidding, I wondered – is it good to register younger than our biological age? Maybe, it is time to grow-up!

It’s been a day I haven’t been looking forward to, but it finally came on Jan. 1. Amazon is now charging taxes for Indiana residents (Nevada and Tennessee also are joining the 16 states that already collect taxes too). I completely understand the reasoning behind it. Brick-and-mortar stores were losing business to online sites (especially big ones like Amazon) and while they were paying taxes and providing jobs in the state, online sites weren’t. Is it fair for online companies to offer prices for 7 percent lower than the local stores that charge state tax? No. Have I purchased items from Amazon that price matched local stores solely because they didn’t charge 7 percent and offered free shipping? Many times (but I’m a frugal buyer and always looking for the best deals – just ask my wife, I’ve already started Christmas shopping). In 2007, state officials agreed Indiana wouldn’t push for online sales tax collection with the Seattle-based Amazon when it opened its first warehouse in the state. Amazon now has five distribution centers in Indiana. But after lawsuits and lobbying from traditional retailers over the policy, former Gov. Mitch Daniels reached an agreement with Amazon to voluntarily start collecting state sales tax in 2014. It’s bad news for some consumers like me, but good for the state because the collection of sales taxes from online-only retailers is potentially lucrative for state government. According to the nonpartisan Legislative Services Agency, state officials project Indiana will see a $57 million per year boost in revenue just from Amazon sales. A study completed in 2012 by the Indiana Fiscal Policy Institute and Ball State University researchers estimates the state loses up to $114 million each year in uncollected sales taxes on internet purchases. Does the change mean I’ll see lower property taxes right away? I’m frugal, not naïve. I do hope that the increase in revenue will be used wisely and will eventually be impactful to me, but right now I think that item is out of stock.

Assessing the holidays

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

The holidays are over, and I finally have a moment to sit down and assess. What went well and what didn’t? What changes, humor if any, should we make for next year? What gift already is broken and should never have been purchased in the first place? I like to do this exercise, because not only does it cement memories into my rapidly aging brain, but it also forces me to appreciate family, however chaotic our time together was. And it was chaotic. Doo and I spent the weekend before Christmas with my parents, four sisters and four brothers-in-law (and 11 children) shopping, cooking, eating, gambling, movie-going and reveling. We were all holed up in two houses, conveniently located directly across the street from one another, and experienced what can only be described as “Camp Morris.” We stayed in the cabin and had to trek up the hill to the main lodge for coffee, food and fellowship. But when you put that many people in close proximity to one another for more than a day, things can turn dicey. Doo and I for example, got into it at our Christmas Eve Eve’s dinner, and didn’t speak to each other until the next morning. Even worse, a stomach bug ripped through the campgrounds a mere 12 hours after our departure. Good times, good times. We saw our own share of puke on Christmas Day at the Wilsons’ gathering, in addition to

vicariously reliving the woes of parenting small children hopped up on Santa’s visit, candy canes and sleep deprivation. Doo and I could sit comfortably while bedlam ensued (this side has 21 grandchildren, several of whom became armed with marshmallow-shooting guns at some point in the afternoon), commiserating with our suffering comrades and ensuring them that they just had to survive another four to six years for Christmas to be fun again. Throw in a heated tradition vs. change conversation, a couple of kids who didn’t get what they wanted, and the aforementioned vomiting toddler, and you’ve got a fairly standard holiday gathering. More good times, indeed. In the heat of the moment, it’s difficult to clearly determine how things went. But now that the tree is down (though I am still finding tinsel) and we’re all back into our normal routines, I can honestly rate the 2013 festivities as an A-. We’ll probably make a few slight changes to next year’s holiday schedule, but given that we successfully spent quality time with two large families without offing ourselves or a minion, I’d say it went pretty well. Hope yours did too. Peace out.

New years, how about a new date? Commentary by Mike Redmond New Year’s has never been high on my list of holidays. I know there are people out there who love nothing more than ringhumor ing out the old and ringing in the new, but I’m not among them. Maybe my ringer’s busted. Most years I’ve had my glass of celebratory ginger ale and made my way to bed long before the celebratory ball drops at Times Square and the celebratory gunfire begins in my neighborhood. I’m not exactly Mr.-Wild-And-Crazy-Kiss-AtMidnight-Party-Animal, is what I’m trying to say. I guess I just have too many issues, beginning with the fact that New Year’s had always seemed kind of arbitrary to me. Who decided Jan. 1 ought to commence the year? Did they take a vote? Why wasn’t I notified? Isn’t this unconstitutional? Didn’t the Founding Fathers have something to say about this? Like I said, issues. Given the chance, I would argue for a New Year’s that made more sense. For example, if it has to be this time of year, why not start it on the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year? You know, start small and work your way up to the rest of the year. Or how about the day after the winter solstice? Let the days dwindle down until the very last one when we’re only getting a few hours of daylight, and then presto! We turn the calendar and they start getting long again. Happy New Year.

Even better, why not start the year with the spring equinox? That would be a nice, fresh beginning. The old year dies with winter and then voila! The new year comes in all sweet and green and lovely. Now, of course, I realize my ideas wouldn’t work for the following reasons: 1. They don’t take into account the Southern Hemisphere. Our winter solstice is their summer solstice. We can’t very well have the two halves of the earth in different years, can we? It’s weird enough the way it is now, with all those Australian bathtub drains that swirl the wrong way, and all those different stars in the Brazilian sky. 2. We can’t start the year with spring in this state because this is Indiana, and we’re usually good for a blizzard or two well after the equinox. The whole idea with spring was to get New Year’s away from that kind of weather. Besides, our January New Year isn’t the only one on the calendar, not by a long shot. These new years are scattered all over the calendar but, through them all runs a common thread of reflection and renewal. And no matter when it happens, that is a good step, I think, toward making any New Year a happy one. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker.

THIS WEEK Hedwig and the Angry Inch – “Hedwig” is a rock musical about a fictional rock ’n’ roll glam band fronted by an East German CARMEL transgender singer. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970s glam rock era of David Bowie, as well as the work of John Lennon and rockers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. This is Footlite’s annual cabaret production. The musical has adult content, and it’s not recommended for people under 18. The opening performance is at 8 p.m. Jan. 10 at the Footlite Theatre, 1847 N. Alabama St., Indianapolis. Tickets start at $10. For more information, call 926-6630 or visit www.footlite.org.

New exhibit chronicles ’60s theatre changes By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com Boy meets girl and falls in love. Boy loses girl at the end of the first act, and we all head to the lobby for intermission. Boy theatre and girl resolve their differences at the end of the second act. Everyone lives happily ever after, and we all leave the theatre humming the title tune. This formula applied to nearly every Broadway musical written before the 1960s. But as a social revolution bubbled to the surface across the country, those changing times reflected back on us from the footlights of the Broadway stage. Suddenly, musical theatre was dealing with themes of oppression, discrimination, abortion, women’s rights, the draft and socialism. This paradigm shift is chronicled at the Michael Feinstein Initiative’s new exhibit, “A Change is Gonna Come; 1960s Broadway Musicals,” which opened Jan. 6, and will run through most of this year. “As we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of many of the musicals from this period, it’s a great time to look back,” said Lisa Lobdell, archivist for the Feinstein Initiative. “The ’60s ushered in a period where we were less afraid to tackle difficult topics in the theatre. It opened the door for modern-day musicals like ‘The Book of Mormon,’ in which we not only address, but poke fun at, our deeply held beliefs. Before the ’60s, every musical was tied to the Great American Songbook, and the songs from the hit shows of the time dominated the radio as well. It was during this era that Broadway found its own way, and the shows really started to have a social impact. It was a very important time.” The exhibit features floor to ceiling posters,

original playbills, memorabilia and interactive touchscreens which showcase the seminal musicals of the ’60s. One of the major trends that define the period is the rise of shows written to star women - who may or may not have had or needed a man by the end of the show - such as “Mame,” “Hello, Dolly!,” “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” “Funny Girl” and “Cabaret.” The centerpiece of the exhibit is the handpainted and hand-beaded, black sequined Halston jacket that Liza Minelli wore in the original Broadway production of “Cabaret,” which touched on such taboo topics as abortion and Nazism. Other shows explored emerging themes of the changing times, such as oppression (“Man of La Mancha,”) free love and revolution (“Hair” and “Oh, Calcutta!”) discrimination (“Fiddler on the Roof,”) the generation gap (“The Fantasticks,”) divorce (“110 in the Shade,”) and hopes, dreams and talents quashed by the draft (“Bye Bye Birdie”).

Luck supports Riley Hospital

dispatch

news@currentnoblesville.com

Andrew Luck, quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, is deepening his commitment to Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University giving back Health by supporting the Riley at IU Health School Program, which ensures that young patients can stay on track academically while hospitalized. Luck’s initial relationship with Riley at IU Health began in April with the launch of the “Change the Play” program, an initiative he helped develop in partnership with Riley at IU Health designed to teach kids how to be the quarterback of their health and wellness. Staffed by seven licensed teachers, the program coordinates assignments with patients’ schools and provides tutoring opportunities to all inpatients in kindergarten through grade 12 throughout their hospital stay. Emily Hume, 12, of Seymour, has been hospitalized since July 4 due to a mysterious heart virus. Hume is tethered to the Berlin Heart device, a machine that allows her heart to regain its strength. To keep up with her studies, she works with a Riley at IU Health teacher each day - even Skyping at times with her hometown teachers and classmates. “If this program didn’t exist, I’d have weeks and weeks of homework to catch up on when I go home,” Hume stated. “It helps prevent me from having to repeat the seventh grade.” Despite being in the hospital, Hume recently achieved her goal of earning straight A’s, landing her a spot on the high honor roll. Luck will volunteer some of his free time to help

patients complete homework assignments, science experiments and other fun-filled educational activities at the hospital. In addition, Luck is donating personal funds to Riley Children’s Foundation to enrich the Riley at IU Health School Program. Two of his supporters, companies Chegg and Lenovo, are also providing free textbooks and tablets to patients and program staff. “Ensuring children have access to a good education and seamless learning is something I’m passionate about,” Luck stated. “Helping support the Riley School Program is incredibly important to me because no child should have his or her academic goals sidelined by illness or injury.” The Change the Play initiative emphasizes the importance of physical fitness and good nutrition, and teaches kids to take care of themselves holistically by exercising their minds, keeping stress in check, getting sufficient sleep and modeling positive health behaviors to peers and family members.

Long live your retirement

Commentary by Adam Cmejla

It used to be that living to 75 amounted to a nice long life and Social Security often was supplemented by a pension. How planning different things are today. The good news is that life expectancy for U.S. women – as measured by the Centers for Disease Control – is now 81.1 years. The Social Security administration estimates that the average 65-year-old woman today will live to be 86. Are you prepared for a 20-year retirement? How about a 30- or 40-year retirement? Don’t laugh, it could happen: the Social Security administration predicts that about 25 percent of today’s 65-year-olds will live past 90, with approximately 10 percent living to be older than 95. The following are some strategies to consider: Plan your investing Many people retire with a random collection of investments and no real strategy. Some are big on “chasing the return” – assuming risk they really shouldn’t in pursuit of a high return. Others are very risk-averse, so fearful of what stocks might do that they stay out of the market entirely. In the current low interest rate environment, that represents an easy way to fall behind and lose purchasing power to inflation. Find a middle ground When you are in your 50s, you have less time to make back any big investment losses than you once did. Protecting what you have is a

priority. At the same time, the possibility of a 15-, 20-, or even 30- or 40-year retirement means you have to keep a foot, if not both feet, in some kind of growth investing. Your initial retirement nest egg has to keep growing. Look at long-term care coverage Medicare is no substitute for long-term care insurance; it only pays for 100 days of nursing home care, and only if you get skilled care and enter a nursing home right after a hospital stay of three or more days. Long-term care coverage can provide a huge financial relief if and when the need arises. Claim Social Security carefully If your career and health permit, delaying Social Security is a wise move. If you wait until retirement age to claim your benefits, you could receive 30 to 40 percent larger social security payments as a result. Married women can look at spousal claiming strategies such as the “file and suspend” approach and claiming spousal benefits first. This may help to maximize the Social Security benefits you and your spouse received. Above all, retire with a plan and stick to that plan. Adam Cmejla is president of Integrated Planning and Wealth Management, a financial services firm in Carmel providing comprehensive retirement planning strategies to individuals near or in retirement.

IU Health to treat patients with UnitedHealthcare insurance as ‘in-network’ news@currentnoblesville.com

IU Health and UnitedHealthcare have been in negotiations to reach an agreement for 2014, but a new agreement was not Insurance finalized before the contract expiration date on Dec. 31, 2013. Discussions will continue in January. Therefore, as of Jan. 1, IU Health and IU Health Physician doctors and facilities will become out-of-network for most patients covered under UnitedHealthcare health insurance. But IU Health has made the decision to treat UnitedHealthcare patients and their portion of the bill as ‘in-network’ to help avoid disruption of care and help reduce the patient’s overall costs. “This decision is consistent with our commitment to ensuring patients have access to nationally recognized care,” said Dr. John C. Kohne, chief medical officer, Indiana University Health. “We know patients value the relationship with their physician and health care team, and we

want to help them maintain those relationships without unnecessary disruption.” This special in-network status means that UnitedHealthcare patients may continue to receive care from IU Health doctors and IU Health facilities, but are responsible for any innetwork deductible and co-pay fees. This special in-network status will apply to the portion of a patient’s bill that is based on the 2014 benefit levels. No immediate steps are required to receive this in-network status. Patients are encouraged to schedule appointments and visit care providers as they normally would. If a patient sees their IU Health provider and receives a statement that includes fees higher than anticipated (out of network fees, for example), they should call the number listed on the statement and the fees will be adjusted to in-network costs. In the meantime, IU Health continues to be committed to working toward an agreement with UnitedHealthCare.

Whole house remodel features new kitchen

Commentary by Larry Greene

Existing home: Located in the Village Farms neighborhood in Carmblueprint for el, this improvement 1990 home was too dark for the homeowner. “It was not to my taste,” the homeowner stated. “I bought the house for the floor plan. It suited my elderly father with the bedrooms all on the first floor. But the décor was not for me. I like light and bright and it was dark.” The goal of the design involved renovating the basement and the entire first floor of the home. Kitchen design: The kitchen design focused on adding functionality and considering aging-inplace standards. Recessed can lights on dimmer switches and new LED under-cabinet lighting was installed. Rather than have the worry of the damaging hardwood floors with spills, tile flooring was installed. The design took into account the elderly father who is hearing impaired. A custom cabinet was designed to hold a special lighted phone for the father. This area also doubled as an organizational spot for the home. Cabinetry changes: New white painted

before & after

maple cabinets were installed all the way to the ceiling to eliminate the need for dusting. “I was originally hoping to have transom cabinets with glass doors, but they didn’t fit into our budget,” said the homeowner. “Our designer suggested adding two cabinets with glass inserts as a compromise. These allow me to display my family heirlooms.” Kitchen details: Granite countertops in Blue Pearl are complimented by the backsplash done

Final Results: The homeowner was very sensitive to the needs of her elderly father and her future needs as she ages in the home. The color pallet of the kitchen was also important. She knew she wanted yellow, blue and white. Those elements were brought into the design.

in Carrera marble three- by six-inch tiles installed in a brick pattern. Medium blue walls connect the blue countertops to the rest of the space. Stainless steel appliances, antique pewter hardware, and brushed nickel lighting add to the bright feel of the new kitchen.
