In for the long run

From the runner to trainer to the dietician, Noblesville gearing up for the Mini By Mary Milz Current in Noblesville Even if you don’t plan to do it, you probably know someone who will – participate in the OneAmerica 500 Festival MiniMarathon. Capped at 35,000 entrants, the 13.1-mile race from

THE RUNNER Christy Dempster had never run a mile before.  Last month she ran 3. She soon plans to run/walk 13.1.  Dempster is among the 35,000, including more than 800 from Noblesville, registered for Mini Marathon May 8 in Indianapolis. She made that commitment Dec. 31, and it wasn’t a New Year’s resolution. She

Downtown Indianapolis to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, it ranks as the largest half marathon in the United States. And with 826 Noblesville residents (an increase from 749 last year and 705 in 2007) signed up as of last count, there’s a good chance one of your neighbors is involved.

said it was a “lifestyle change.” “I found a gray hair and it was a call to action,” and the Mini was “one of those things I always wanted to do,” said the 36-year-old.  She hired Noblesville trainer Ben Lavallier to keep her on track.  They meet at Anytime Fitness several times a week for cardio and strength training.  “If I didn’t know there was someone

With less than two months to go before the long run – or walk – on May 8, participants are starting to pick up the pace.  Here’s a look at some Noblesville residents keeping track of race day.

waiting for me, it would be easy to hit the snooze button at 6 a.m.,” she said. Since beginning her workouts two months ago, Dempster has lost 13 pounds. “I feel better. My clothes fit better. I have more energy,” she said. Her goal?  “I just want to finish.  I’ll look for a better time next year.” Dempster

THE TRAINER Ben Lavallier won’t run the Mini this year, but you might find the personal trainer and general manager of Anytime Fitness cheering from the sideline. Fifteen of his 30 clients plan to do run Being prepared “is 100 per cent key to a good experience,” said the Noblesville resident. That means training at least

three-to-four times a week for three months. Lavallier’s regiment combines cardio with strength training. “If you don’t have core strength, you’re prone to injury and you’re less efficient,” he said. The Mini also requires mental toughness. 

“There are times you work out and you want to quit,” he said.  “You must train yourself to (keep going).” Lavallier said though he’s not a distance runner, he’s committed to helping people in the long run. "My real job is to keep people motivated and see them hold on to it through the Mini,” and he hopes well beyond.

THE DIETICIAN Laura Kenny ran her first Mini when she was a freshman in high school. “My only goal was to beat my dad,” she recalls. But he didn’t run, and she had a bad experience. “I didn’t eat breakfast and I drank a lot of Gatorade, to the point where it made me sick to my stomach,” she said.

She knows better now. A dozen years later, the 26-year-old is a registered dietician at Riverview Bariatric.  She’s learned what you eat and drink helps determine how well you run or walk.  “Carbs are your best friend,” Kenny said.  “They’re your number one source of fuel.” Eat plenty of fruits, veggies and grains

and stay hydrated.  Kenny recommends 6-to-12 ounces of water every 20 minutes if you’re walking or a sports drink if you’re running, and lap it up when you cross the finish line. Lastly, eat breakfast.  Kenny did before her next six Mini’s and got off to a much better start. Kenny

THE EQUIPMENT

Business always picks up at Noblesville MC Sports in the months prior to the Mini, says store manager Jen Sollars. First-timers are eager for advice.  Rule No. 1: don’t buy new shoes the day before the race.

said, Solars. “Comfort is foremost.  If you’re not comfortable, you won’t run.” Rule No. 2: don’t skimp on shoes. Expect to pay $70-$100 for a decent pair, an investment worth it in the long run. “If your shoes are broken down,” Sollars said, “it affects your knees,

your back, your shoulders, every part of your body." And when it comes to socks and shirts, forget cotton.  It doesn’t breathe. Go high-tech, Sollars advises.  It wicks away moisture and keeps blisters at bay, which goes back to the better you feel, the farther you’ll go.

OUR VIEWS

It is our position that the longer days and sprouting flowers can only mean one thing – spring is upon us. While we are eager to welcome the return of blue skies and green grass to displace the dingy gray that follows Indiana winter, we are also reminded that higher temperatures and March Madness likewise serve to indicate that we must be vigilant for kids darting out into the streets and lanes of our fine community. Cooped up for many long months -- we’re talking about the parents and kids alike -- many youngsters are breaking out the bicycles even before all of the snow is gone. Spring Break is just around the corner and yard sale signs are again dotting the landscape. And yet, as we send our kids out to burn off some winter-stored calories, many of these children have forgotten the basics of traffic safety. Parents, now is the time for a refresher course on the outdoor rules. It is amazing how quickly we forget them. And also, please remember to watch out for those children that are all too rushed to see the sun. With a little attention, we should all make the happy transition without incident.

Mail it in

It is our position that a recent request by the U.S. Postal Service to eliminate Saturday delivery and dramatically change the way in which it interacts with its customers is worthy of consideration. While letter delivery is sacred to many, we believe that the onslaught of other more efficient and often effective methods of the distribution of commerce and communication have proven themselves sufficiently capable to justify a serious assessment of the cost and benefit associated with the convenience and service provided by six-day delivery and hours of post office operation. We are pleased that this quasi-governmental business is looking at all possibilities in addition to price increases to provide its services. We urge those in leadership at USPS to continue to expand their thinking into all areas of the massive organization while looking for appropriate ways to contain costs. Are labor and management costs in line with the earnings of the operation? In these economic times, many of us are looking for solutions that do not involve pushing our costs to the customers. Decisions to prepay retirement health benefits will grab a staggering $5.5 billion from the coffers this year along. Is it necessary? USPS must consider all alternatives before cutting service and hiking rates.

From the backshop Dems heading for a fall in the fall? A report in left-handed The New York Times, no less, summarized ObamaCare thusly: The White House privately believes it only has a 51 percent chance to ram this bill down the throats of the American people. “That 49 percent chance of failure could devastate (Barack) Obama’s presidency, weaken Democrats heading into the fall midterm elections and trigger an even fiercer, more debilitating round of finger-pointing inside the administration,” the report said. … On a semirelated front, we’re wondering if you still are laughing at Obama’s executive order for setting up an 18-member, bipartisan commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform? We’ll save him the trouble and solve it right here, right now: IT’S THE SPENDING, STUPID! ••• We were incredibly proud to help sponsor Ben Vereen’s recent appearance at Carmel High School on behalf of Carmel Community Players, but we thought there might have been a larger crowd to see the legendary stage, screen and TV actor and vocalist. The chance to see Vereen brought back memories and also created new ones for those in attendance. CCP did a wonderful job of acquiring the

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg Brooklyn-born and terrifically funny Vereen for the evening, and we hope the fundraiser was a big success. Vereen won’t be the last big-name entertainer to come through these parts, by any stretch, but if Hamilton County is going to be the “Arts Capital of Indiana” – as so often is discussed - we all need to commit to participating whenever possible. The Oscars telecast could have been a drain on attendance, but there is a bigger picture. This was a perfect opportunity for parents to expose their children to wholesome and awesome talent at a modest price. Either we, as a community, support the arts as best we can, or we sit at home and wait for the next nailbiting installment of American Idol to begin.

Here we grow again; four new faces grace our pages COMMENTARY By Zach Dunkin Celebrating our six-month anniversary this week, a stellar writing staff that hopefully has provided you with lots of entertaining and insight stuff, is getting bigger and better. Today, we add four new columnists to the team we blithely call The CIN-ners (Current In Noblesville, get it?). Three of the features will be new as we introduce coverage for pets, travel and religion. The fourth beat, fitness, will now be shared by two trainers. April Conard, an NETA-certified trainer and 13-year Group Fitness Director at the Noblesville Athletic Club, will join our other certified trainer, John Bellmore. Conard wants her readers to “see how fitness is for everyone and not just the athletic types.” “The perspective I would like to have is to not take fitness or yourself too seriously,” said the former Colts cheerleader. “Have fun and laugh at yourself sometimes.” The weekly Get Outta Town travel featurette will be replaced by a much more informative column written by Tracy Line, travel agent for Family Vacations in Noblesville.

Counseling the arts

COMMENTARY By Terry Anker As is the nature of being a good citizen, we should all find ourselves routinely in the company of our fellow would-be philanthropists. I have spent time in equal measure with the charities necessitated by bringing children into the world (school, scouts, sports), those most affiliated with my personal interests (the underprivileged, neighborhood boards), and those that support the arts and culture of our community (museums, music). At a recent benefit for a number of small local arts groups, it was clear from demeanor and word that political statement was on the agenda next to pleas for cash. Attacking tradition and pushing others to think is admirable, certainly tolerable. But singling out those with differing views to ridicule and humiliate is not. From the hall one could hear, “If anyone in this room liked Sarah Palin, they are in the wrong expletive place.” I’m not sure I’m a fan of Ms. Palin, but I am certain that all willing

to assist these struggling arts groups should be welcomed. Sadly, many chose to substitute profanity and ridicule for open-mindedness. Too many of us have allowed ourselves to become expensively educated and thoughtlessly liberal folk whose minds are so open that they have become closed again. Shunning intellect, we imagine ourselves above reproach but in fact are dangerously close to becoming little more than rude hipsters dressed in the costume of the self-offended children of the wealthy. Or are we errant intellectuals whose lives have not turned out as we expected – therefore it must be the fault of the establishment! As we preach tolerance, are we really tolerant?

Readers' views Adding illumination Editor In response to an excellent commentary by Vicky Earley on March 2, I doubt that Mr. Edison really cares that the U.S. Congress in their wisdom (?) has made some varieties of the ubiquitous incandescent lamps illegal. The reason for this law is a somewhat misguided attempt to save energy in an effort to force people to buy Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL). An average American home spends $1,000 to $1,200 dollars each year on electric power. The average home spends only $70 to $100 per year on lighting costs. As you can see, the amount of money that could be saved by

turning off every light in your house all of the year isn’t that large. Consider that ten CFL lamps would cost roughly $50 you have blown half of your yearly lighting energy costs in buying a few new CFL lamps. Yes, of course, the incandescent lamp is inefficient. However, consider this: the excess energy is heat. In Indiana, that means that about eight or nine months or so every year, that energy goes to help heat your home. Therefore, that energy is not wasted. I hope that I added some illumination to the subject. (Pun intended here.) Terry Hoff Noblesville, 46062

We’re good and a lot cheaper Editor I wanted to comment on an article in your (Panache) dispatches from Men’s Health.com from a guy who was a stylist for the “West Wing” TV show on barbers and stylist and who is better at shear work and working with the customer on what looks best. I am a barber for nine years and come from a family of barbers. Not only do we do shear work and work with our customers for their best look with their face structure, we learn everything a stylist does such as perms, color, bond structure of hair, blending

Current in Noblesville

or tapering of the hair, straight razor work, chemicals, skin diseases, blending in to wigs and hair pieces etc. We start on a mannequin head with shears and cut different styles in till you end with a flat top and no clipper work. The only difference I can find between barbers and stylists is that barbers are cheaper around $10 to $20 bucks depending on where you go and stylist charge $20 to over a hundred bucks for a style.

Commentary By Danielle Wilson I was sitting in church the other day when the priest said something I completely disagreed with. As his homily continued, I became more and more irritated. I felt the sudden urge to stand up in the middle of the congregation and challenge his argument, like Amy Madigan did in “Field of Dreams” (“At least he’s not a book burner, you Nazi cow!”) I quickly realized, though, that it was neither the time nor the place to channel my radical ‘60s vibe, so I remained seated and silent. But I did strongly consider walking out. Problem was, I had three of my kids with me. Marching the four of us straight out the back door would have been emotionally satisfying, for certain, but also incredibly rude, especially because we were near the front. As I sat in the pew fidgeting and frowning, letting my anger simmer but not boil over, I glanced over at my little Catholics. It was hard to tell if they were paying attention at all. One most certainly wasn’t, as her concentration was completely centered on the small hole in her leggings. The oldest might have been, and he was the one I was most concerned about. I didn’t want him thinking I agreed with the sermon, but I also didn’t want to call attention to the topic if my son wasn’t listening in the first place. I wondered whether I should say something later or simply pray he was spacing out. Then I remembered a similar experience I’d had a few years back – on Mother’s Day, actually. A different priest had gone on a rant about how Muslims were taking over the world and if we weren’t careful, there’d be a mosque on every corner by 2012. The entire speech was all very hellfire and brimstone-ish, and it totally disgusted me. I was alone then, and did walk out, though unfortunately I was already toward the back, so my exit didn’t quite

have the dramatic effect I’d hoped for. But that was OK. I had a clear conscience afterward and felt like I’d done my part to stem intolerance. This time around, though, I decided to do nothing. I continued to listen and try and understand what the priest was trying to teach me, but concluded he was being a hypocrite, at least on this particular topic. I’m 95 percent certain none of my children heard anything he said, and if they did, they probably didn’t understand it anyway. I’m not proud of my complacency, and I still may e-mail my priest to see if he can enlighten me, but given the circumstances, I think I did the right thing. And don’t get me wrong. I like being Catholic. It’s just that I want to be a tolerant Catholic and be respectful of different faiths and lifestyles, even if that goes against the Church’s teachings. More importantly, I want my kids to be the same. Walking out wouldn’t have accomplished anything but making me look like an ass, and that’s assuming people would have understood I was protesting. Most would have just thought that we were taking a family trip to the restroom! But now that I’ve had some time to mull it over, I think that the next time I disagree with the homily, I will encourage my children to really listen and then take the opportunity to discuss it afterwards. Or we’ll leave in a huff. Defying the establishment is extremely satisfying! Especially if you can legitimately call someone a Nazi cow. Peace out.

SOLD signs are GOOD signs for our town and the economy COMMENTARY By Leslie Webber Like everyone else, I am very ready for spring. I opened the sunroof in my car the first sunny day we had. Never mind that it was a balmy 48 degrees. I needed some fresh air. It seems cliché to talk about the sense of renewal spring brings, but it does. After a year of economic upheaval, earthquakes, health care reform debates, and budget cuts in schools, we’re all in need of the hope blooming tulips seem to bring. As I pulled onto our street a few days ago, I noticed something even more exciting than green grass. Something that signaled another form of recovery. A house that had only been on the market for about a month had a big, bold SOLD sign standing on the front lawn! At the other end of our street, stood an excavator at the ready. Someone was digging a basement! In between these two homes stands another house that was on the market for the past two years. Not anymore. It sold, too!

I’m not just excited about the prospect of new neighbors; which I admit is always thrilling for me – if there was a Welcome Wagon in town, I’d drive it – I’m encouraged to see signs that the real estate market might be starting to rebound. That’s welcomed news for property values and continued growth in Noblesville, but it also means something bigger. If folks are buying and building homes, it must mean things are starting to look up. Most people don’t buy homes if they don’t feel financially secure. After hearing about job loss and deep pay cuts, a rise in home sale might indicate an economic turnaround. I’m not an economist by any stretch of the imagination, but after a long winter I’ll take any glimmer of hope or renewal I can get. Leslie Webber is a Noblesville resident, wife, mother of two very young children and a professional photographer. Visit her Web site at www.lesliewebber.com.

Is the Hummer dead (yet)? Bring on the ‘grease car’ Commentary By Krista Bocko I admit that I roll my eyes – hard! – when I spot a Hummer on the road, as I did last week. I wonder what the owners of those things think when they pull up behind me and gaze out at my “Love Mother Earth” bumper sticker as they chug through a gallon of gas just driving across town and back. Or maybe they can’t even spot it, since they’re so high up. So, upon hearing recently that the Hummer/China deal fell through, I feel hopeful to be finally closing the books on this particular chapter of conspicuous consumption and seeming narcissism, and moving toward more awareness of sustainability and eco-consciousness. With that in mind I am cultivating my “drive as little as possible” mindset. You’ve heard it before – walk or bike when and where you can, combine errands to cut down on mileage, and take steps to improve your cars efficiency. (I know Noblesville isn’t very walker- or biker-friendly, but, hopefully, change via more walk and bike paths is coming though.

What I would really like is a car run on waste vegetable oil (www.greasecar.com). I wonder if anyone around here has one? Back to the Hummer. I’ve been vaguely aware of the former Fishers Hummer dealer Quonset hut-like showroom that was built within the last five years and has now been sitting empty for quite some time. What will become of it? My thought was that it would be awesome to repurpose it as a garden center with the Quonset hut part being a greenhouse … except for the fact that, being built like a Quonset hut, the south side is shaded. Darn! One thing is for sure, there are many like me that will be happy to see fewer Hummers out on these flat, paved Hamilton County roads.

COMMENTARY By April Conard Push ups, wall sits, line drills … all the things you haven’t done since freshman year of high school during P.E. You probably did not enjoy it then because it might mess up your hair before Algebra class, but now, it is a different story. Who cares what your hair looks like after a workout? It’s your body that you want to see change. Now, you look forward to a well-deserved sweat. If this sounds like you, consider joining the ranks of boot camp class enthusiasts. Attending a boot camp fitness class is a great way to get fit, lose weight and have fun. Why the popularity surge? Because it focuses on full-body conditioning and addresses all areas of fitness including: • Cardio and muscular endurance • Fat and weight loss • Balance • Flexibility Unwanted pounds will melt away (along with gallons of sweat) while you gain strength and stamina.

M.D. and N.D.: There is a difference and room for both COMMENTARY By Carol Rossetti, N.D. You may wonder what is naturopathy and what is the difference between a medical doctor and a naturopathic doctor? A naturopathic doctor – or naturopath - looks for underlying causes rather than treating every symptom, and we do not diagnose disease. Disease diagnosis is a way of giving a collection of symptoms a name, so a drug can be matched to it. A naturopath is never allowed to stick anyone with a needle or they are operating outside the limits of the law. There are few practitioners of naturopathy in Indiana. A naturopathic doctor has a diploma clearly stating he has earned the degree. To obtain that degree an aspiring naturopathic studies herbology, homeopathy, massage therapy, iridology, anatomy physiology, chemistry, pharmaceutical interactions, diseases, developing health programs, and nutrition since it is the cornerstone of naturopathic medicine. During your first visit to someone claiming to be an N.D. ask to see his or her diploma. If they are not willing to show one, leave immediately. A first visit with a naturopathic doctor includes:

8 | March 16, 2010

• One-hour appointment covering your health, lifestyle, nutrition, prescriptions, supplements, work life, family life, and exercise plan. • A discussion about your health – where it is and where you want it to be. • You will leave with a written plan covering what is necessary to help rebalance your body and help it heal – a supplement plan, nutrition plan, exercise plan, and a complete analysis of depleted nutrients if you are taking prescriptions. A medical diploma does not make me a naturopath, and a naturopathic diploma does not make me a medical doctor. There is a place for both the medical doctor and the naturopathic doctor. Hopefully, in the near future, there will be a coming together, as in many other countries, to help you heal. An honest and caring meeting of the minds. It is only then we can say, we provided you with the very best medical care in the world.

Value is all about preception COMMENTARY By David Cain What makes something have value? What makes one thing worth more than another? Why is one house worth more than another house? Is it the location? Is it the amenities? The answer is easy. It’s neither. Sure, the location and the amenities are critical. But the more correct answer is it’s the perception of the buyer. It’s what the collective buyers think it’s worth. Value is set by relevant buyers’ perception of what is offered and their ability to act on that perception (i.e., can they afford it?). There are no inherent values in sticks and stones; value is created and maintained by perception. Don’t believe it? Imagine a 4,000-square-foot house with an in-ground pool, five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a swanky basement and a four-car garage. What’s that package worth in Carmel? What’s it worth in Martinsville? What’s it worth in Boston, in San Francisco? The number will change drastically, but it’s the same house. Why the change? It’s what people believe the different locations are worth. It’s their perception of value. There are probably more buyers in Boston and San Francisco, so there is more demand, and with more demand comes a higher perception of value. The same is true of brands. What makes a

name brand worth more than an off-brand? Again, it’s the perception of what the most likely buyer thinks that product or brand is worth. What makes a Lexus sell for more than a Camry? Certain buyers think the Lexus is better. Those who don’t buy the Camry. You can argue about amenities, but the reality is value is set by what buyers are willing to pay. And amenities are only worth as much as the relevant buyers believe them to be worth. Like the house, a brand has value if buyers think it does. Brands don’t just sit on a shelf. Brands exist in the hearts and minds of people. A brand is the sum total of perceptions about your product or service in the heads of your relevant audience, more affectionately known as your buyers or your market. And, if your market doesn’t perceive value with your brand, you have a problem. To avoid being substituted for the generic equivalent, you have to create the perception of value. When people hear the name of your product or service, they must think value. Otherwise, you are just a commodity.

COMMENTARY By David Knall One of the major issues that makes this period so very unique for fixed-income investors is the “almost zero” level of interest rates. Bill Gross from PIMCO calculated it would take 6,932 years to double your money in a money market fund at 0.06 percent. The collateral damage of this zero-percent rate situation is that it invariably leads to a misallocation of resources and wild boom and bust cycles.  Zero rates distort investment decisions, causing investors to place funds in vehicles never contemplated when rates were higher (in the good old days).  Another consequence of “forcing” the public to stretch for yield (and take more risk) is that these desperate individuals may really feel it when, inevitably, their bonds go down in price from credit downgrades and/or interest rates going up.  The Federal Reserve has driven rates to levels where banks can earn a very nice interest margin, therefore “saving” them.  There is no question that we need a healthy banking system, thus, the steep yield curve. Unfortunately, the “responsible” individual who has saved their money for a rainy day is earning a horrible rate on those dollars.  Do we now change our stripes and buy lower-quality bonds with longer maturities for our clients?  Do we stretch for yield?  We don’t think so.  We view our bond accounts as “dry powder” for tomorrow’s opportunities, which enables us to sleep at night in years like 2008. We are not sure what we will do with this dry powder, but the point is that we will have options. When will rates go higher? When will stock prices give us better opportunity? That is the end of the story.

Capt. Critic’s DVD pick

The Twilight Saga: New Moon PG-13, 130 minutes

Photo by Kimberley French and courtesy of Summit Entertainment.

Taylor Lautner stars as Jacob Black in fantasy horror romance “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.”

“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” is soft-core romantic fantasy for tweens: An unremarkable girl is pursued by two intense, dreamy guys with super powers and a penchant for doffing their shirts, but who are content with holding hands and smooching. I remember at the screening for this movie, I was surrounded by hundreds of teen girls and their middle-aged mothers cooing appreciatively whenever 17-year-old Taylor Lautner’s frequently shirtless, chiseled torso appeared onscreen. I kept wanting to ask the moms how they’d feel if I started slobbering over their semi-nude, underage daughters.

Anyway. In a sequel to the hit vampire romance, Bella (Kristen Stewart) is abandoned by her bloodsucking boyfriend Edward (Robert Pattinson), who departs with his family out of fear they’ll be discovered by the humans. Local boy Jacob Black (Lautner) fills in the gap, despite dealing with the mother of all adolescent transformations -- in his case, into a huge, snarling wolf. “New Moon” is actually a bit of an improvement over the first “Twilight,” but it’s still often draggy and much too long. New director Chris Weitz (taking over for Catherine Hardwicke) has a better flair for the

Before you travel, know your travel style Commentary By Tracy Line When planning a trip, normal people pick a destination, hop online to research a resort or two, and book a place to stay. Done. Not me. I can spend hours delighting in (obsessing over?) where we might go. I read books, surf the web, call tourism bureaus and analyze the pros and cons of an entire trip. For me, travel is like a puzzle. The pieces must be put together and when everything finally fits, I feel triumphant. It works for me, and I’d like to share how it can work for you. Because frankly, a beautiful Web site does not make for a great vacation. And you deserve a great vacation. Start with the where, and get creative. Some of the most memorable trips are those leading us to new experiences. Think beyond the beach and consider what brings you joy. Do you love the solitude of a mountain cabin or relish the hustle and bustle of a busy city? Are you an ad-

venturer in awe of other cultures or does traveling abroad leave you anxious? Next, consider those you’re traveling with and where you’ll stay. A hotel may be great for a couple, but a tiny room with two beds, two adults and two small children doesn’t even sound like a vacation to me. Larger travel parties benefit from the space of a condo or cabin, keeping everyone happy and stress-free. And while it’s no fun to mention, consider your budget. Determine what you can afford, and then research, so you can get the most for your money. At www.tripbase.com you can enter in travel dates, preferred activities and the amount you want to spend. Tripbase cranks out vacation destinations. Tracy Line is a travel agent for Family Vacations in Noblesville, and also a travel writer.

Irish stew with a seafood twist perfect for St. Paddy’s Day By Molly Herner Current in Noblesville With St. Patrick’s Day upon us, it’s the perfect time to prepare an Irish stew to complement the Irish brew of your choice. Since the Irish raised primarily sheep and root crops for subsistence, traditional Irish stew was made with lamb or mutton. But the abundance of seafood – after all, the country is surrounded by water -- resulted in an option to this thick and tasty dish. Irish families were often large, so the seafood stew was a popular solution that was made with fresh ingredients and could feed the whole family and is still a common meal among many families. I feel that Americans, specifically, Midwesterners, have forgotten the age-old art of seafood soups. This soup is a beautiful combination of your favorite seafood, tomatoes, assorted

vegetables and lots of garlic. It’s low in calories and is a healthy substitute to the meat-based Irish stews. The variety of seafood gives high fiber content to the dish. I like to use shrimp, calamari, clams and a fresh white fish like mahi mahi or sea bass. Let this soup cook for hours and even days. The longer your stew simmers the more infused with seafood it will become. Serve it with a crusty bread or Irish soda bread and celebrate Ireland’s most famous patron saint. Molly Herner, is the baker/pastry chef at Matteo’s Ristorante Italiano. You may email her at odette05@ aol.com.

irish seafood stew Ingredients: • 3 pounds of your favorite seafood • 6 cloves garlic • 1 large Spanish onion • 5 carrots • 5 stalks of celery • 3 potatoes • A few ripe tomatoes • 1 head of cabbage • 4 cans of chicken stock or ¼ cup chicken soup base • Anchovies, two or three fillets packed in oil. • Olive oil • Salt and pepper • Red pepper flakes • White wine Directions: 1. Chop all of the vegetables very small, dice the potatoes, shred the cabbage and mince the garlic and onion. 2. Sautee the vegetables in a large soup pot with

olive oil and a dash of salt, pepper and about a 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. When vegetables are cooked through add about 2 or 3 anchovy fillets and allow to cook down into the vegetables. You can pour a bit of the anchovy oil in as well. Pour in 1 1/2 cups of white wine. Add your soup base here. If you are using chicken stock we will add it later. Roughly chop all of your seafood into bite sized pieces and sauté in a separate pan with olive oil until cooked through. Add the seafood into the soup pot. If you are using chicken stock, add it now with a few cups of water. If you used soup base add the appropriate amount of water. Let the soup come to a rolling boil and then turn it down to low to simmer for an hour or so. The longer your stew simmers the more infused with seafood it will become.

What began as its namesake’s post-college project has expanded outside of its humble Ball State roots, and is now bringing campus-style eats to the Hamilton County borderline. Scotty’s Brewhouse, begun in Muncie by owner Scott Wise in 1996, has a mongo menu, and deciding what to eat is no easy task. There are six pages of entrees and sandwiches alone. The health-conscious will find refuge in the salad section with the chop chop, heaps of crispy iceberg and romaine topped with tomatoes, onions, eggs, mushrooms, crumbles of bleu cheese and bacon. The less-concerned will find something he finger-lickin’ good bar-b-two, a half rack of ribs, a chicken breast, brew-homemade barbecue sauce, and melted cheddar cheese, may fit the bill, or the spicy big Brewhouse burrito with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, Cajun dirty rice, salsa, and beef, chicken, or black beans. Scotty’s also offers a never-ending list of desserts, and what is arguably the region’s largest selection of beers and mixed drinks.

DISPATCHES » Conner proposing budget cuts – Seeking to balance the budget of Noblesville Schools, Dr. Libbie Conner, superintendent of Noblesville Schools, will recommend a list of cost-saving measures totaling more than $3.4 million to the Noblesville Board of School Trustees March 16. The list includes reductions in staff and operational costs and program adjustments. All measures impact the district’s general fund. The recommendations come after intensive study by the district’s Budget Review Committee. That committee, formed in August 2008, is made up of teachers, classified staff, school and district administrators, and school board members. The public meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the Central Office Annex. (For more details of the proposed cuts, see a longer version of the story at www.currentnoblesville.com).

» Williams Comfort Air offering scholarships – Carmel-based Williams Comfort Air has launched a community recognition program, ExtraordinAIRy Treasures, created to honor individuals who showcase extraordinary qualities on a daily basis giving comfort, hope, inspiration, respect, service, and love to those around them. Last year Williams Comfort Air presented two ExtraordinAIRy Treasures scholarships. This year six ExtraordinAIRy Treasures scholarships will be awarded -- four $1,000 scholarships and two $500 scholarships. There is no GPA requirement, and the student can attend a four-year college, two-year college, vocational college, or a trade school. Students do not apply for these scholarships but are instead nominated with an essay written by a parent, teacher, counselor, neighbor or employer. The essay should include an overview of the nominee’s life skills in action such as integrity, kindness, and commitment to community, to name a few. Nominations will be accepted through April 13. To nominate someone, visit www. ExtraordinAIRyTreasures.com and complete the form.

Bored with the season? March through these possible cures COMMENTARY By Hannah Davis March is the pits. A lot of the month is a cold, mucky prelude to the joy of spring break, and if it weren’t for that week of relief in April, I doubt most of us would be able to get through March with a proper head on our shoulders. But not to fear! We only have a couple weeks left ‘til we can legitimately greet a new (and hopefully more entertaining) season. And to help us all along the way, I’m providing everyone with a handful of activities to get your mind off just how boring your life is right now. Here goes: 1. If you’re restless, get out of the freakin’ house. Do whatever it takes. Go on a road trip. Have lunch downtown. Go to a museum, if you must. The Indianapolis Museum of Art, for example, is, (1), free and, (2), rather helpful in developing your more sophisticated side. 2. If you’re not so restless, find a new book and actually read it. Find a comfy corner, throw a few blankets down. Don’t stop when you decide you have to check your Facebook, or when you start craving

Mickey D’s. I’ll acknowledge reading isn’t always the most titillating way to spend your time, but at least you’ll accomplish something. 3. Dip into your rainy day fund and buy a concert ticket. ‘Tis the season, you know. Pick up a Nuvo and find something that’s unique enough to be interesting, but not too weird. Concerts should be a source of entertainment, not nightmares. 4. If all else fails, host a movie marathon. Have a friend who doesn’t know that Darth Vader is Luke’s father? Drag her over to your house and make her watch the entire Star Wars series. And yes, there are people out there who don’t know that dear old Darth is Luke’s dad. In short, try your best to ignore all those little things you should probably be doing, and keep it on the straight and narrow. Mentally, at least.

DISPATCHES » Get framed – Thick-framed glasses are back.  If you’re thinking of buying a pair for yourself, here are a few beforeyou-buy tips: • We're talking about substantial plastic frames here, not wire-thin Donald Rumsfeld glasses. You will get noticed, and people will comment. So be prepared. • If you're buying your first pair of glasses, go for reasonably slim frames. Once you've established that yes, you wear glasses now, you can go the chunky Woody Allen route. • Even the smartest frames don't look great on every face. Only buy off the Internet if you've tried the glasses on first. - gq.com  

Rules were made to be followed COMMENTARY By Vicky Earley When the adage “rules were made to be broken” was first uttered, it was not by a designer. Yes, rules can be broken, but only with planning and vision will the room be a design success. Principles are the rules, formulas and evaluations about interior decorating that are the unchanging guides to good design. When the rules are ignored, you will most likely feel there is something amiss with a space. You might not be able to verbalize just what the problem is, but it is almost certain a rule has been broken. The basic design principles are balance, focus, harmony, proportion and rhythm. Balance: You will most likely feel if a room is unbalanced. Balance simply refers to the visual equilibrium of a room, which is achieved by the placement of objects within a room according to visual weight. Shape, color and texture all help to determine their visual weight, which is merely how much space objects takes up within a room. Try to distribute various objects throughout a room to maintain balance. Focus: This refers to the direction the eye

travels and remains as it first enters a space. A multitude of focal points in a room make it quite uncomfortable, as there is no place for the eye to rest. A room with a fireplace, television and large window featured on separate walls is an example of a collection of focal points. When colorful art, strong furnishings and complex patterns are added to the mix, it becomes a visual cacophony. Harmony: This is achieved when the elements of a room work together to form a visually pleasing cohesiveness with the proper balance of variety and unity. Harmony in design is similarity of components or objects looking like they belong together. This unity can be defined as a design thread that tells a story from one element to another. Color harmony may be achieved using complementary or analogous colors. Proportion: Ah, proportion and his best friend scale. This is something the real estate agent fails to mention when showing you a home with a two-story great room. Technically, proportion refers to how the elements within an object relate to the object as a whole, while scale relates to the size of an object compared to the space in which it is located. In other words, a sofa that appeared gargantuan in a family room

with eight-foot ceilings will look like it was custom made for the Lilliputians when moved to the large room with high ceilings. Rhythm: The rhythm of a room controls the visual flow around a room. Rhythm allows the eyes to move around from one object to another and creates a harmonious atmosphere in a room. It is created through repetition of line, form, texture and color. It can also be created by progression, which is simply a gradual increasing or decreasing in size, direction or color. Whether purchasing new home or planning a redo of an existing home, just being aware of the elements and principles of design will help to ensure a successful outcome. The elements within a room are not unlike the paints an artist uses in the creation of a breathtaking work of art: Each color and brushstroke plays off another color within the guidelines of design principle. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel. If you have an interior design question, please contact artichokedesigns@aol.com.

COMMENTARY By Darla Kinney Scoles Our assignment – and we all accepted it – from week one of family history class was to fill a cardboard box. Specifically, the “homework” was worded such: “Get a cardboard box. Any kind of box will do. Put it someplace where it is in the way, anywhere where it cannot go unnoticed. Then, over a period of a few weeks, collect and put into the box every record of your life. Collect diplomas, all of the photographs, honors or awards, a diary if you have kept one, everything that you can find pertaining to your life; anything that is written, or registered, or recorded that testifies that you are alive and what you have done.” Also on the list of potential box contents were books of remembrance, family Bibles, letters, personal histories, newspaper clippings, obituaries, and birth, marriage and death certificates. Returning with our boxes after one week of gathering, the class members shared what they had found as well as why they were participating in the class. The reasons and contents varied widely, of course, yet each had a common

thread. Out of the “matter unorganized,” as one student worded it, will come a new world full of people, places and stories we wonder about but can’t accurately imagine without further research. “I feel like God,” said the aforementioned participant. “I’m going to take matter unorganized and make a new world.” I like that thought. Is anyone out there interested? What motivates you to read this column? Are you mildly curious about family history? Planning to start record-keeping? Already digging into the past? Why not take a box and organize some matter? Even if the world you will create won’t take shape for years to come, you’ll have all the ingredients you need on hand when the time is right.

A shining example of smart design – right in our back yard COMMENTARY By Randy Sorrell Smart design is always critical, but it is especially critical when real estate is at a premium. This curious 20’ x 32’ project squeezed behind our office on Range Line Road has fueled several redesigns. Balancing traffic flow and creating multiple living spaces were the primary objectives, while taking into consideration a considerable drainage issue.  Thoughtful privacy strategies were also necessary with neighbors in whispering distance. It resulted in an edgy outdoor living space we love and often use to entertain. A custom cedar privacy panel at the end of the drive not only helps with privacy, but also serves to stimulate intrigue and causes visitors to lean around, anticipating the space where they are greeted by a nicely textured, multi-stem riverbirch. The two subtle rough-sawn cedar pergolas offer additional privacy, dappled shade and planting opportunities. A creamy blue slate transparent stain stimulates a definite sense of an outdoor room. Stepping off the crushed stone drive and onto the rescued paver connection walk heightens the intrigue with textural differences. The curved

path leads to both a rectangular deck off of the back door and the primary brick patio living space. Our team installed Azek – a favorite virgin synthetic decking material – on the slightly elevated structure and crafted a wrap bench for space-saving seating. The contrasting color on the deck and bench face suggests a modern touch on this 1950s house and calls attention to the single riser step. Nice, simple, clean and very usable. My favorite part of the back yard is accessible through a functioning dry creek bed that accepts runoff during rains and empties into a sub-surface rain barrel we employ when it’s time to water the many cobalt-blue pots used for color and fragrance. The rippled brick patio easily houses a formal bench and a handful of tall bar stools. It’s enveloped by an 18” natural limestone wall that retains the higher elevation and provides additional informal, yet painful, seating.

The thrill of gardening is most definitely not gone COMMENTARY By Holly Funk Did you see it? That vaguely familiar, fiery ball in the sky? Could it be that spring is around the corner? This is one of the most exciting times of the year, and every year I worry just a bit that the thrill of gardening may have passed during the winter. After all, I’ve been known to overdose on something and then suddenly lose interest, like when I swore my life to tennis and that one time I was totally going to be a magician. All have since faded from interest. Luckily, that mom thing is sticking. So far. But I think I’m in the clear for this year. It’s barely March and I’ve already trudged through snow at the Indianapolis Museum of Art gardens in search of crocus or snowdrops. Seed packets are collecting, waiting to be sowed and guess what? I still love gardening. In fact, I’m thinking of picking up a flat of “Johnny jump ups” (Viola) that will bravely face the chill and last until at least the end of June. I’ve been eyeballing the garden centers, just waiting and the anticipation makes me all giddy

inside. And while I’m on a horticultural high, I think I’ll stick a few of those seeds in the ground this weekend, maybe Sweet Peas and larkspur. Both enjoy the cool season to grow and I’ll be giving them a great start since I won’t have to transplant them. While I’m out there, I’ll trim back all the brown foliage from the last year and make room for my daffodils that are nosing through the soil. But I’ll pass on trimming my hydrangea until all danger of frost is passed. Then I’ll thin out any stems that didn’t come back to life. What it boils down to is that yearning for flowers that I just can’t beat. So, luckily, gardening isn’t going the way of tennis any time soon. I’m far too enamored by the lure of a beautiful garden. Until it’s full of mosquitoes, that is. Holly Funk is an Indiana accredited horticulturist and advanced master gardener residing in Noblesville.

We all believe in something, live our lives accordingly Commentary By Janna Lynas In the coming weeks I will be writing about topics of spiritual significance. Be it a message that moved me, a community event or subject of interest, it will be very personal to me and I hope, to you as well. When I was approached about writing a commentary on faith, I was excited about the possibilities. My heart did a cartwheel. Actually, maybe it was a real cartwheel on my kitchen floor. I’ve dreamed of an opportunity to do this for a very long time. Now that reality has set in, I confess I’m a little intimidated. I am truly humbled to approach this highly relational and intimate portion of our lives. I say “our” because we all believe something about how we were created. About why we do the things we do, and about where we end up when we die. Let me say, first, I don’t have all the answers. But I will do my best to share with you what

I’m learning. Almost daily I am reminded that this life is messy and I need my Savior; I just can’t do this life without Him. The only qualification I bring to you is my life experience with Christ. I have followed Him for 32 years with many ups and downs. You need to know I believe the Bible is true from beginning to end. Pretending to understand it all would be foolish, although I am trying. Although we may not be in agreement on everything, we all do believe in something and live our lives accordingly. With that said, if you have something you’d like me to address, let me know about it. I pray you’ll find this spiritual space inspiring and full of hope.

Fact: pit bull terriers score well on temperament tests

DISPATCHES » Stop the shake – When bathing your dog, you probably get wet when he shakes the water from his fur. To stop him from shaking, watch his nose. When you see the nose start to shake, gently but quickly grab his nose to stop the shake. Also, dogs tend not to shake until their heads are wet, so wash and towel dry everything else first, then try to get the head and neck separately. -Household Magic  

COMMENTARY By Rebecca Stevens March is “Pit Bull Education Month” at the Humane Society for Hamilton County, so it’s a good time to share some thoughts, and the facts, on the most abused and misunderstood breed in the world. More than 3,000 pit bulls and pit bull mixes have passed through our doors in almost five years with the Humane Society. And although many of you will find this hard to believe, the truth is, the number pit bulls we identified as truly “human-aggressive” and, therefore, unadoptable for that particular reason, can be counted on less than two hands. We have found pit bulls to be no more or less aggressive than any other dog. This month is about educating the community to the history, characteristics, trials and tribulations of this breed. Pit bull terriers have been a part of American culture for more than 200 years and revered as one of the most loving and loyal family dogs. In fact, pit bull terriers consistently score better on temperament tests conducted by the American Temperament Testing Society (www. atts.org) than golden retrievers, border collies,

» Easy walk - Dogs who don't know how to walk nicely on leash end up not being walked at all -- and that can contribute to obesity and behavior problems. The same people who came up with the head halter have more recently come up with another product: the front-clip harness called the Easy Walk. There are a few different ones on the market now, and they all work on the same theory: When the leash is clipped to the front of the harness (as opposed to the top center of the back), a dog's own forward momentum is used to keep him from  pulling.  - veterinarypartner.com 

Parents are invited to attend an information coffee concerning

boxers, and German shepherds, to name a few. I’ve seen hundreds of pit bulls enter our doors over the years who have been neglected, used and abused. But of any breed of dog I have encountered, they also have the greatest propensity to love and forgive. Check out our Web site www.hamiltonhumane.com for the “Facts vs. Fiction” when it comes to the pit bull terrier. It will be eye-opening. Also, there will be a free pit bull education event at noon March 20 at the Humane Society, 1721 Pleasant Street. Chris Denari, announcer of the Indiana Pacers, and his adopted pit bull, Bailey, will be there to greet visitors. Owners of pit bulls, pit mixes and bully breed dogs are invited to join a parade around the 4-H county fairgrounds, beginning at 12:20 p.m. A free seminar begins at 2 p.m. RSVP to Mandy Maxwell at (317) 219-4630. Seating for the seminar is limited. Rebecca Stevens is executive director of the Humane Society for Hamilton County . You may contact her with questions, solutions and story suggestions at hamiltonhumane@ yahoo.com.

PETS OF THE WEEK Pacer is a 2-year-old male tri-color hound/ shepherd mix. Pacer is yet another dog that was surrendered to the shelter because his previous family could not afford to care for him. Pacer did nothing wrong: He got along well with other dogs and he got along well with the children. Pacer doesn't understand why he no longer has a home, why he no longer has a family or what is going to happen next. So it's not surprising that he was a bit protective of his food during his temperament test; however, he wasn't protective of toys. Pacer can learn not to protect his food. Larry is a 3-year-old gray and white male DSH. Larry arrived at the shelter with his brother Hendrix when their owner passed away and no family or friends could take them. They both miss their home, and Larry seems to be having a harder time with the situation. He isn’t comfortable in the shelter and is shy around strangers, so he will need a patient person to help adjust to a new home. For more information on these and other animals at the Humane Society, call 317-773-4974 or go to www.hamiltonhumane.com.

COMMENTARY By Mike Redmond I believe I just had my first Senior Moment. Could have sworn I was still a junior. It happened during a brief weekend jaunt down to Nashville – the one in Tennessee – for a brief spell of acting like I’m some kind of big shot. The big-shot thing I accomplished by taking lodgings in one of my favorite hotels on this planet, the 100-year-old Hermitage, a rather swanky joint across the street from the Tennessee state capitol. I love the place for its superior lodgings and the fact that once Gene Autry checked in and got a separate room for his horse, Champion. Really. They took out all the furniture, laid canvas over the floor and installed Champion with a room service lunch and a key to the honor bar. The Hermitage is one of those places where, if you’re me, you like to dress to match the atmosphere. I tend to choose old, fancy hotels whenever possible – you know, the kinds of places that look like sets from old Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movies. Gleaming marble floors, polished brass everywhere, a grand piano tinkling in the corner, members of the staff moving about with quiet efficiency – that’s the atmosphere I seek. And when I’m it, I like to look the part – suit, tie, shined shoes. Showing off? Maybe. But I also think it’s about respect for the building and its history. Not that everyone shares this belief. It’s always a little jarring to walk into that setting and see some guy who looks like Curly from “The Three Stooges,” only with a goatee and tattoos, standing at the urn loading up on free coffee. Now, I didn’t wear a suit to travel, although I sometimes do. I find if you dress nicely you get treated a little nicer than if you show up for

your flight in, say, cargo shorts, flip-flops and a tie-dyed Grateful Dead tank top. (Are you listening, Mom?) That meant I had to dress for dinner, and this is where we find my Senior Moment. I stepped out of my luxurious bathroom and began laying out my clothes – neatly pressed suit, starched shirt, tie, socks … and oops. I know what you’re thinking. I forgot the shoes, right? Wrong. I had shoes, all right, a left one and a right one. It’s just that the left one was brown, and the right one was black. Senior Moment. Big one. This is what happens when you keep your shoes in bags and just reach into the closet to grab a pair instead of actually checking to see you’re getting what you want. This, of course, presented a calamity. The only other shoes I had were tennis shoes. I called the concierge and he helpfully told me that all the stores near the hotel were closed, but that I could drive out to a mall. I started to tell him that was HIS job – hasn’t he seen any movies about swanky hotels? -- but instead, I made the trip and brought a pair of shoes for about $100 more than I had budgeted for “emergency expenses.” Which leaves me with a lesson I’d like to pass along to everyone. Save your money. Save as much as you can for your old age. Start now, when you’re still a freshman or sophomore. Those senior moments are expensive.
