OUR VIEWS

It is our position as the Super Bowl comes to town, so do a great number of people who are not used to our roundabout system. Expect a week full of cars stopped at the entrances and in the middle of our roundabouts. While we can’t know now what the week leading up to the big game will be like, we can guess, based on other cities’ experiences, everything is going to be hectic. This most likely will include the roads, and specifically, the roundabouts. We love the efficiency and safety of our roundabouts, but there is the problem they are foreign to many outside of Hamilton County and can cause confusion. Our best advice is to be patient and be ready for the unexpected when it comes to entering a roundabout. As Feb. 5 nears, Hamilton County is going to get a little chaotic with out-of-towners looking to enjoy all the different events our community will offer. We’ve been working for years in preparation of the crowds staying in Hamilton County hotels and eating in our restaurants. Now it’s time for Hamilton County to charm our visitors. Step one includes making sure they feel safe in our roundabouts.

Political negatives

It is our position the “buyer-beware” tactic has taken over when it comes to negative political advertising. There is an oncoming tsunami of political attack ads this presidential election year. A survey commissioned by the Project on Campaign Conduct found voters dislike negative advertising. Why, then, is it increasingly used in political campaigns? The short answer is, though voters dislike them, they work. In comparative commercial advertising, the message must be true. The standards are much looser in political advertising. The truth is often skewed or distorted to achieve desired results. Perhaps, the best tactic is to not believe everything you hear. Web sites, such as FactCheck.org and Project VoteSmart.com, allow voters to sift through the spin and provide information regarding candidate’s voting records, issue positions, biographies, public statements, etc. Daily political media slugfests suppress voter turnout. Instead of staying home on Election Day, perhaps a better response would be to utilize the power of the vote. Vote for the candidate who runs a positive campaign and doesn’t try to mislead the voter.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Hungry for news? The feed will become endless This newspaper thing is a lot of fun for us, and we have been at it for nearly a combined 68 years. On paper, we get 52 chances a year to give you the news and information you desire. It’s an opportunity and a responsibility we take seriously. But the days of copy paper and carbon paper on the barrels of manual typewriters long ago gave way to computers. For years, it has been all about technology. (Stay with us; there’ll be a point made soon.) The Internet – thank you, Al Gore – presents us with chances to give you what you need NOW. To that end, the Center for the Performing Arts quietly posted its financial audit and internal review last week, and Christian Sorrell, our new online/social media coordinator, went into “Tasmanian Devil” mode. In no time at all, he had the Center’s reports posted to our Web sites, Facebook accounts and Twitter sites. Traffic increased again, as it has since Christian came aboard the week before last. We got the news out well in advance of all other Central Indiana media outlets. That’s a special moment in our business, being first. Until the two of us began to take this whole Internet thing ultra-seriously, it was standard

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg operating procedure to simply wait for the next edition. The late, great Vince Lombardi, he of Green Bay Packers coaching fame, once said, “To do the same thing repeatedly and expect a different result is the definition of insanity.” Were it not for our decision to bring Christian aboard, we were closing in on a rubber room for two. Old dogs learning new tricks, the two of us. See? It can be done, and sometimes in the nick of time. So, as Christian would tell you, watch our Web, Facebook and Twitter sites (each paper has its own; start at www.youarecurrent.com), because we aim to feed. Early and often.

Summer breakdown COMMENTARY By Terry Anker Recently, much has been said about tuition and schedule alternatives to the traditional fouryear college degree. Many institutions, including Ball State and Purdue, have recently announced initiatives to make it easier (and in some cases cheaper) for kids to pursue a diploma without spending as many years on campus. Advocates for the plans point to savings, sometimes significant, to young people and their families if the matriculation comes earlier and full-time employment starts quicker. While the math holds up, many claim intangibles like the maturity and perspective gained during the fourth (or more) years on campus can’t be offset by a year of saved expenses and earning capacity. Still, others defend the existing system citing the expectations of teachers, students and parents to have summer, fall, winter and spring breaks. But there are other considerations as well. If this paper, for example, were to add 25 percent to its page count, wouldn’t that necessarily allow for more content and more advertising? If a uni-

versity can graduate kids in three years instead of four, doesn’t that mean 25 percent more young people can access the opportunity to attend the college? Some would rightly argue a surplus of seats in a class would lead to lower admission standards. In other words, some kid would get into the class that wouldn’t have otherwise, had there been fewer seats. But if education is the key to a solid future, how can we tell Jane she has no hope because we arbitrarily decided the academic calendar should not exceed 30 weeks in any given year? Big money, adolescent maturity, access to education and the conviction to established patterns are all at play in what is coming together as a colossal power struggle. But in a globallycompetitive world, isn’t it good to challenge the status quo?

Missing babies

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson When my husband underwent a vasectomy almost eight years ago, there was no question in our minds that choosing permanent birth control was the right choice. I did, however, take our newborn daughter to the appointment, afraid one of us might need the not-so-gentle reminder of a screaming infant to hold us steadfast to our decision. Having just hit the big 4-0 last week, I’ve begun to feel a few twinges of regret. Not surprising, I suppose. I’m nearing the end of my child-bearing years and probably only have a few good eggs left. After those are gone, there’ll be no chance of me ever reproducing again. I must confess, accepting the fact that I’ll soon be too old to have babies is more difficult than I anticipated. And making my graceful embrace of perimenopause even harder is the fact that close friends of ours just had a baby. (Close friends who, I must note, are only a year younger than we.) While visiting them in the hospital, I actually found myself calculating the odds of my whisking the infant away before the alarms could rouse a taser-armed security guard. The odds were not overwhelming, so I took a moment to simply enjoy rocking her in my arms and to briefly contemplate doing it all again.

I think a part of me was envious. I miss the excitement that comes along with a new life. I miss the possibilities a new life presents. I miss the pure joy of creating a miracle. And, if I’m totally honest with myself, I miss the attention that expecting and new moms receive. Admittedly petty, but true. Thank God I have a sister who is pregnant with identical twins. She reminds me on a daily basis why I’m thrilled to be in the next stage of my life. Her first trimester, all-day sickness has given way to severe varicose veins, emotional distress over high-risk multiples and the frightening realization she still has four more months of weight gain, stretch marks and hernias. Then, it’s years of sleepless nights, breastfeeding horrors and diaper debacles. No. Thank. You. Not at 40. So I guess the lesson learned here is this: We make the best decisions we can based on where we are in life; second guessing yourself only leads to possible incarceration. Yes, I’m growing older, but I’m also growing wiser and more confident. Besides, I like the idea of grandbabies I can return to parents. Peace out.

O’Connor selected to lead council By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com Greg O’Connor has been selected to serve his second presidential term on the Noblesville Common Council this year. O’Connor, who was recently re-elected for his second term in November, previously served as council president in 2009 – a year after being elected. “Mark did an extraordinary job. I’m grateful for his leadership,” O’Connor said of replacing Boice as president. As a previous president, O’Connor said he has the experience and leadership of running council meetings. “It helps to be able to see some things coming down the road we might not anticipate otherwise,” he said. The council will look a little different in 2012, with the addition of Jeff Zeckel, and Rick Taylor beginning his first full-term. “We’ve got a good group and I look forward to interacting with our two newer members,” said O’Connor. “I’ll bring some enthusiasm to our job of trying to make Noblesville a better place and improve on what we’ve got.” O’Connor said the council will continue to look at ideas and work with administration to improve quality of life. One specific project he plans to look more in-depth at is the traffic situation in the city, and said he wants to make that a higher priority on the council’s list. He is also

looking for feedback from citizens and encourages them to be a part of the council’s decision making. Also key to O’Connor is communicating with the public and explaining, “What we are doing and why we are doing it.” O’Connor said the budget will remain the biggest obstacle facing the council this year, adding the councilmen need to continue to be good stewards of taxpayers’ dollars, and look at timelines to determine when projects are slotted to take place. “I’m going to work with the mayor so we have a unified front,” he said. “Economy is still challenging. It’s starting to head in the right direction, but it’s not going to change overnight. We need to take longer term views of things.”

Plastic bags (and polystyrene) can stuff it, Part Two COMMENTARY By Krista Bocko I’ve written about these two topics before, but it’s been awhile and it’s worth repeating. And I’m a recycler, including of topics. Plastic bags and polystyrene, the stuff of plates, fast-food cups and packing peanuts, makes me cringe. At a recent dinner, I ranted a little about how much we consume and how I get tired sometimes about stressing over each of my actions. I wonder if it even matters I spend time and energy putting my words and hopes out here for a healthier, conscious world. Someone wisely said, “It may not always be easy, but it should be simple.” We should be proactive about reducing consumption, like those insidious plastic bags at stores pushed at every turn. Bring your own bags. Make it a habit. It’s simple. “But dang it,” I said, ‘Stores also need to train their employees to use less plastic.” Last week, in a store that kind of rhymes with “Margret,” I saw a cashier place one (foam) carton of eggs in a plastic bag and hand it to the customer ahead of me. Why did those eggs need their own bag? In a store that rhymes with “plier,” I was buying two half-gallons of ice cream for a birthday last year and I handed the cashier my cloth bag,

www.youarecurrent.com

who then put each carton in its own plastic bag and into my cloth bag before I could speak up – more unnecessary plastic in my hands. Last week, not wanting to cook, I ordered takeout for the family from a favorite restaurant downtown. The food was phenomenal, but opening up the EIGHT foam containers wasn’t. I felt so guilty. My life would be easier if stuff was streamlined and compact, not bundled loosely in bags and foam that are terrible for the earth and that I have to deal with. Because you know I’m going to store all this … stuff … in my basement and garage until I can take it to the only place in Indy where it will actually be recycled. Most recycling services, including the one servicing Noblesville, can’t take polystyrene. Most recently, my friend Stacy said I’d be proud of her. Her recycling bin was stuffed and when she peered into her garbage bin and saw it had one small bag of garbage, she thought of me. Aww! Recycle on!

Local pastor leads Legislature in prayer editorial@youarecurrent.com Rep. Kathy Richardson (R-Noblesville) was honored her pastor, John Davis of The First Christian Church of Noblesville, led the Indiana House of Representatives in prayer on the first day of the 2012 legislative session. “I am honored Pastor John and his wife Stacey came to lead us in prayer. It is always such a special day for me when they come to the Statehouse,” said Richardson. “He gave a beautiful prayer, as he does every year, and it set a lovely tone for how session should operate.”

As caucus chairperson, one of Richardson’s duties is to manage the Minister of the Day program. Before the opening of session each day, members of the House of Representatives have the opportunity to invite religious leaders from their communities to lead the House in prayer. “I feel it is so important to start session each day with prayer. It gives us all a chance to reflect on what truly matters,” she said. “Times are very tough for many and I appreciate the opportunity each day to say a prayer for those that are in need and to ask for guidance.”

How we got here June 13, 2011 – The last time Dorothy Heard is seen or heard by any family members is 8 a.m. Heard’s nephew, Donald Burns, 47, of Elwood, sells a wedding ring matching Heard’s at 5:23 p.m. in a Marion pawn shop. Burns’ right thumb imprint and photo ID were used at the EZ Pawn Store to sell the merchandise. Surveillance video shows a man matching Burns’ description buying jewelry worth $378.78 from the Wal-Mart at 5:40 p.m. About 15 minutes later, another $698 transaction was denied from Heard’s credit card company.

After seven months, police are still investigating the disappearance of Dorothy Heard

June 14, 2011 – Family members report Heard as missing around 2:42 p.m.; NPD begins investigation. Burns is arrested around 5 p.m. by Elwood Police after fleeing from officers and causing a chase. Elwood Police went to contact Burns on behalf of the NPD. By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com For the past seven months, officers from the Noblesville Police Dept. have been working inHeard tensely to find missing Noblesville woman Dorothy Heard. NPD Spokesperson Lt. Bruce Barnes said the investigation into Heard’s June 13, 2011, disappearance is still under way and police still are pursuing tips. “Every single day it comes up,” he said. “The day starts with us asking, ‘Have we heard anything new?’” Barnes Barnes estimates thousands of hours have been spent looking for Heard, and the investigation is an agency-wide effort. “Our No. 1 priority is to find her and get her back to her family,” he said. “Our No. 2 priority is to criminally prosecute those responsible for this.” Barnes, who has been the department’s liaison with Heard’s family, said these cases are difficult because the NPD hasn’t had very many missing person cases; Heard is the only Noblesville resident currently reported as missing in the city. “What makes this case different is we don’t have much information to give them. We always let them know before anybody else finds out about it,” he said. “The family wants closure and we want that for them. It’s not the long hours, the pay or being tired – we want to make the family as right as they can be moving forward. We deal with them on a daily basis and will continue to deal with them until we find her.” NPD investigators have submitted pieces of evidence to the state lab for DNA analysis. Barnes said a maximum of 20 items are allowed in one submission. While analyzing, if the lab dismisses any item, the submitting organization can replace it with another item. Once the maximum number of items is analyzed, a law enforcement agency may submit more, but are placed at the end of the line.

“A missing person case or otherwise, it takes no precedence,” Barnes explained. Barnes said the NPD has received some information back from the lab, but would not comment on it, saying it was part of the ongoing investigation. “We don’t have a clear path, every little thing matters to us,” he said. “It’s like a puzzle and we have an assortment of pieces – if and how they do fit.” Since the investigation into Heard’s disappearance began on June 14, police have searched for her in Hamilton, Tipton, Madison, Grant and Wabash counties. One location of particular interest, the Mississinewa Reservoir in Grant County, includes 15,000 acres. “We are considering every place in terms of location,” said Barnes. “The area presents some possibilities because there are so many small, one-lane roads. We’ve spent hundreds of hours up there working with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Natural Resources.” Heard’s nephew is still a “person of interest” in her disappearance. Donald Burns, 47, of Elwood, was caught on surveillance video footage using Heard’s credit card to purchase hundreds of dollars in jewelry at a WalMart store in Marion, just Burns hours after she was last seen by other family members. Barnes said Burns also tried to pawn Heard’s

However, Burns has not been charged in Heard’s disappearance. “She would not have given him the ring and credit card willingly,” said Lou Ann Sylvester, Heard’s daughter. “I would like to know how he got them.” Police officers wanted to ask Burns questions about Heard’s disappearance, but were unable to because he refuses to cooperate in the investigation. Barnes said police believe Burns might have been one of the few people to have last seen Heard. Heard is described as a 74- year-old white woman with gray hair and blue eyes. She is 5 feet 2 inches tall, and weighs 137 pounds. Those who may have tips on Heard’s disappearance are encouraged to contact NPD investigators at 776-6370 or may make an anonymous tip online at the department’s Web site, www.cityofnoblesville.org/ department/?fDD=11-0, or by e-mailing dorothyheardcase@noblesville.in.us. “We haven’t had anything that has been significant. Unless someone provides us with info, we’ve exhausted most of our leads in the case,” said Barnes. “At this point we’ll take anything that a person tells us,” he said. “Quite a few phone tips.

Lou Ann said Heard loved to play games – especially Yahtzee – with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. CONITINUED ON PAGE 9

It’s just like she’s disappeared,” said Lou Ann. “She had to feel like she was helping – needed to be needed. She’s done a lot for a lot of people.

DISPATCHES » More price hikes to come? – If you’ve been pondering plane tickets for a spring break or summer trip, it’s time to put those thoughts to action. Last week Delta Air Lines initiated a fare hike of $4 to $10 across the bulk of its U.S. route system. “This comes right on the heels of Delta initiating a $20 fare hike on long-haul flights and JetBlue doing a shorter-haul hike last week,” said FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney. “It looks like we’re tracking almost like last year, which was basically ‘Let’s get a bunch of fare hikes in early’.” -www.travelkit.msnbc.com » Tasty new blends – Winemakers used to blend two or more grapes so the strengths of one could make up for the weaknesses of the others. Now they do it to create new flavors. The Miami Herald “highly recommends” one such blend, the 2010 Big House Red from California-based Big House Winery. The wine is an out-ofcontrol blend of petite sirah, tempranillo, syrah, Grenache, malbec, mourvedre, nebbiolo, tannat, souzao, aglianico, barbera, zinfandel, petite verdot, cabernet franc, charbono, nero d’Avola, sangiovese, sagrantino and other esoteric reds, the paper says. It’s soft, dark and full of powerful dark berry flavors and spice.

This import has long been killing hardwood trees in China. Here in the U.S., the beetle prefers box elder, Norway, red, silver, sugar and sycamore maples, among other trees. The only way to eliminate these beetles seems to be removal and burning of the infested trees. Infested areas must be quarantined. -www.almanac.com » Worst airport terminals – Travel site Frommers.com created this list of its picks for the 10 worst airport terminals in the world. 1.

Adventures in Italy DIVERSIONS By Tracy Line I’m the first to tell you a well-thought-out trip leads to a better vacation. But sometimes it’s fun to fly by the seat of your pants. It’s precisely how I landed in an Italian winery in the hills of Tuscany last November. We’d planned the trip to Italy with our dear friends, to help them celebrate their wedding anniversary. For this trip of a lifetime, we’d decided to spend a day roaming the tiny towns of Italy’s wine country. A last-minute decision was made to hire a driver to take us there; it was serendipity.

Tuscany, Italy On a brilliantly bright Wednesday morning, Franco, our driver, lead us on our merry chase. We roamed the likes of Pisa, Siena and other small towns within the Chianti region. At midday, upon our request for a wine tasting, Franco called in a favor with an old friend. In five minutes, he’d arranged for our lunch and tasting at Tenuta Torciano, a 17th century winery on the outskirts of San Gimignano. We stepped out of the car and into a scene from “Under the Tuscan Sun.” Luigi, a 13thgeneration vintner, took us under his wing, captivating us with his thick Italian accent and stories of his great, great, great grandfather’s 11 children. Our to-die-for lunch was served by cousin Giacomo. Giacomo doesn’t just serve, he taunts; his descriptions of delicate flavors and wine pairings mesmerize me. Maybe it’s the accent. The three-course meal, the wine, the atmosphere – it was more than I could ask for. For this ordinary working mom of three, who is normally chauffeuring children and making mortgage payments, it felt like a dream. So yes, plan your vacations wisely, but always leave a little room for chance. Chances are your unplanned adventure will be the most memorable part of your trip.

Capt. Critic’s DVD pick

Real Steel PG-13, 127 minutes

Rock ’em Sock ’em ‘Rocky’ DVDs By Chris Lloyd Every year spawns a few movies that fall into the “love-it-or-hate-it” category, or in the case of “Real Steel,” the “like-it-or-hate-it” flick of 2011. I found it to be an amusing, overly sappy father/son redemption story with impressively cool robots – “The Champ” with Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots. Actually, since the movie came I finally figured out why the boxing robots in the movie are so evocative: they bear a startling resemblance to the iron football goon used in promotional bits for NFL games on Fox. People who might abhor the visceral thrill of boxing and other human-blood sports can safely revel in watching two automatons turn each other into scrap metal. Hugh Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a former contender in the ring who became a

manager of robots when human boxing was outlawed. (The story is set in the near future.) Through a series of unlikely circumstances, Charlie is forced to take Max (Dakota Goya), the son he never met, on the road with him, where they bond through a sequence of misadventures. Their fortunes take a turn for the better when they uncover a mysterious robot fighter buried in a junkyard, dub him Atom and before long they’re headed to the championship bout. “Real Steel” may be overly maudlin, but as lightweight entertainment with a little heart, it’s the real deal.

The declines were too small to be noticeable in everyday life, and were detected only through a battery of tests the researchers gave the participants every three to four years. -www.health.com

Facial aging and tummy tucks ANTI-AGING By Barry Eppley Q: Is the Lifestyle Lift effective and how long will it last? A: The Lifestyle Lift is just a franchise term for a limited facelift or a jowl tuck-up procedure. It is a scaled-down version of a more complete facelift or a neck-jowl lift. The more relevant question, however, is whether this type of facelift approach is right for you. The vast majority of unhappiness with Lifestyle Lifts, QuickLifts or any other form of “minifacelift” was because the patient wasn’t a good candidate. Their facial aging issues were more advanced and they should have had a fuller facelift to get the kind of result they were expecting. Understandably, patients are tempted to choose a facelift operation based on how it would be done (local or IV sedation), a short recovery and/or a low cost, rather than choosing a facelift operation that better fits their actual needs. This is the real issue you should be thinking about. Q: I am a 32-year-old woman who is in serious need of a tummy tuck. I have had three children, the last two by cesarean section. I have a large amount of lower stomach skin with a lot of stretch marks. It makes my belly button look odd and almost buried with the loose skin around it. If I get a tummy tuck, will the doctor be able use my C-section

scar? I need a tummy tuck so bad that if I had to have a new scar above the C-section scar, I could live with it. But I would like, if possible, to keep it low and just have a longer C-section scar. A: This is a common question and concern, one I think about when doing a tummy tuck in every woman with a C-section scar. I always want to use the C-section scar whenever possible for two reasons. The first is the one which concerns you, and that unsavory cosmetic issue of adding another scar to the one you already have. But a more important consideration, and the one I am most concerned with, is the survival of the skin between the two scars if the C-section scar could not be used as part of the tummy tuck. The intervening skin between these two scars may not have a good blood supply, and could either not heal well or actually die … which would obviously create a significant after-surgery complication. For this reason, every effort is made to use a C-section scar in a tummy tuck, and if you have as much loose skin as you describe, this would not be a problem to do so.

» Overlooked tax deduction – Generally, you can only deduct mortgage or studentloan interest if you are legally required to repay the debt. But if parents pay back a child’s student loan, the IRS treats it as though the money was given to the child, who then paid the debt. So, a child who’s not claimed as a dependent can qualify to deduct up to $2,500 of student-loan interest paid by Mom and Dad. And he or she doesn’t have to itemize to use this deduction. The parents can’t claim the interest deduction, even though they actually foot the bill. -www.dailyfinance.com

Move the needle: the little things BUSINESS By CJ McClanahan I recently spent nearly 45 minutes one weekend at a local hobby store trying to convince my son that building a Pinewood Derby car would be fun. Along with a handful of other fathers, I wandered around the store aimlessly, desperately trying to find the right accessories for the car. The staff did everything possible to avoid us, ducking in and out of empty aisles. When I finally got someone’s attention, he was clearly irritated I interrupted his day. That weekend, my wife and I had dinner with some close friends. It was a unique restaurant where we ordered multiple courses. Every time we asked the waiter for help, he acted as though he had 10 tables too many and would get to us when he got the chance. It’s unlikely I will visit either of these places again. Do you remember the days when the cable and phone companies had no competition? You would wait on the phone forever to talk to a rude customer service representative. If a service visit was required, you were then given a six-toeight-hour time frame when they might be able to get to your home. As just about everything becomes a commodity, customer service is more important than ever. So, what makes great customer service? While it’s a little different for everyone, there are some basic fundamentals you should consider as you prepare to engage with your market. It always begins with the first impression.

Some research suggests an individual makes this impression in less than two seconds, and once it’s made, it’s extremely difficult to change. When you engage with a prospect, make sure you smile (even over the phone – they can tell), thank them for the opportunity (gratitude goes a long way) and get clear about exactly what they expect (without being too pushy). If your customer has any issue with your product or service, always start with an apology. Over the holiday season, I was on the phone with a variety of service providers with a problem and only one provider (Verizon) started the conversation by apologizing for the fact I had to make the call. When the transaction is complete, deliver a genuine “Thank you for choosing us.” This is different from the canned “We know you have a choice in air transportation” you receive every time you land at your destination. This is heartfelt, and if appropriate, is even followed up with a handwritten note. As with most things in life, intellectually speaking, this is easy. All you need to do is choose to execute. Choose wisely.

Fake a Gorgeous Glow Just in time for Spring

Break!

• Start with a clean slate: Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate! Make sure to focus on areas where dry skin is common. Knees, elbows, feet, and ankles are prime areas that soak up extra product. • Pick a self-tanner that works with your skin tone: Self tanners come in green base and orange base tones. Come into Salon 01 and ask one of our trained estheticians what sunless tanning product is best for you. From sprays to creams, we carry it all! • Use a friend: You may not be able to see your back, but everyone else can. Enlist the help of a friend who can easily apply the product where you can’t reach. Rather not recruit help? Opt for a spray applicator such as Quick Tan sold at Salon 01. The spray will easily reach areas that a lotion wouldn’t. • Be patient: It’s best to allow the product to sit on the skin for at least 15 minutes before dressing. Showering or extensive sweating should be avoided for at least 48 hours after an application.

Enjoy!

Room addition creates expanded laundry room REMODELING By Larry Greene Original laundry room: This home was built in 2006 in the Village of West Clay subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The current owners are the original owners and went through the new building process in 2006. Unfortunately, they were never happy with the laundry room, which was small and lacked functional space. Blending in with original home: The designer determined the best solution was to relocate the existing exterior heating, ventilating and air conditioning compressor unit to the opposite side of the house. This allowed free space for the new room addition. The design team created a room addition onto the side of the house, which added a modest amount of square footage and added tremendous functionality. According to the homeowner, “The designer listened to what we wanted and came up with a design that allowed for a lot of usable space. You would never know it was an addition, inside or outside. The space looks like it was built with the original house.” Salvaging cabinets: The design team was able to salvage the existing cherry cabinets in the former laundry room. These salvaged cabinets were then combined with a few new cabinets to create a new expanded laundry room. New bathroom: The design also created a

Confrontation: Love it or hate it? COMMENTARY By Kristen Boice How do you feel about confronting others or maybe confronting your own issues? Do you tend to run away from confrontation and avoid conflict? If you do tend to shy away from conflict, what is your fear about it? How does it impact your relationships? It’s important to take a look and really dig deep on how you deal with difficult feelings and issues. The word “confrontation” brings up many different meanings, often people associate being “confrontational” as negative. I encourage you to look at it differently, and to look at it in terms of exploring how you face issues in your life. Do you tend to run away from, stuff or ignore them? Or, do you acknowledge and work through them? How do you deal with your feelings? Do you express or suppress them? Why is this important? If you don’t deal directly with issues, feelings or challenges in your life, they can manifest in different ways such as depression, anxiety, fear or physical illness. Sometimes people just feel stuck. Maybe it’s because there is something from the past or present to confront, deal with head on and, ultimately, move on. The payoff is you gain more peace about the situation and, most importantly, yourself. We are all human beings with feelings and experiences. There is no such thing as a perfect person or relationship. Everyone has something

that triggers or upsets them. In order to gain a sense of self, it’s important to begin dealing with your feelings and confront issues in your life. Below are a few ways to begin confronting yourself or someone else. 1. Acknowledge your feelings and possible areas for improvement. We can all grow, learn and become a better version of ourselves. In order to do this, we must take a look at what it is we want to confront and work to improve it. We don’t want to dwell, blame or get stuck in the past, but to explore it and create understanding and insight. 2. Take responsibility for your part. Look at the parts of the situation you can own. Is it all your issue or just certain parts? Don’t take on issues that don’t belong to you. It might be someone else’s issue and not yours to own. 3. Communicate how you feel. It’s so important we share how we feel by using “I” statements such as “I feel sad when you don’t return my calls for days.” Telling someone how you feel is not about them, it’s about you. Let go of the expectations of others and say what you need to say. It’s about your own healing.

Surname searching can be surprising COMMENTARY By Darla Kinney Scoles As newlyweds, my husband and I received an interesting offer in the mail. It was a notice from a publisher, informing us of the upcoming printing of a book about the Scoles family. The whole thing smelled of a scam (“One time offer!” Order now!”), but we decided it was inexpensive enough to be worth the risk, so we put our check in the mail. I’m happy to say that sometime later, we did indeed receive a hardback book titled “The Scoles Family in America.” And the book did indeed contain all the items listed in its advertisement – including the fact that the origin of the name “Scoles” meant “dweller at the shed.” What? What kind of name origin is that? Being that this was before the age of Internet searching, we really had no way to easily corroborate the demeaning definition. The book went shamefully on the shelf and I took comfort in the fact that my other name, Kinney, had a much nobler heritage, having been derived from my Scottish/Irish ancestor’s in the clan McKinnon – or so I’d been told. Now the Internet provides a plethora of Web sites offering to freely help families research their surname. As we have done so, we have found the book was indeed correct. “The name Scoles, with variant spellings

Schoales, Scholes, Scoles and Scoyles, derives from the Northern medieval English ‘scale’ or ‘sc(h)ole,’ ultimately from the Old Norse ‘skali,’ a hut or temporary shelter, and was originally given either as a topographical name to someone who lived by such a shed …” (I found the origin on www.surnamedb.com.) Obviously, there is no escaping that one. Kinney, on the other hand, has more than one possibility for origin, including this one, also found at www.surnamedb.com: “This most interesting surname is of Old Gaelic origin, found in Scotland and Ireland, and is the Anglicized form of the Gaelic ‘O Cionnaoith,’ composed of the Gaelic prefix ‘O,’ male descendant of, and the personal name ‘Coinneach,’ an Old Irish personal name borne by a sixth century monk and saint who gave his name to the town of Kilkenny, ‘Church of Coinneach.’” Yes, searching the origin of a surname can be surprising – and surprisingly fun. Give it a try. Darla Kinney Scoles is a freelance journalist living in Noblesville. Her most recent work involves the creation of “Stories”, an individualized writing service helping people get their personal histories down on paper. Contact her at darlakinneyscoles@gmail.com.
