Stony Creek beats fundraising goal By Robert Herrington • After surviving eye cancer, Vescelus Matthias, an early childhood student at Stony Creek Elementary School, is one of five ambassadors for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. To raise awareness of childhood cancers, Stony Creek Principal Heidi Karst said the school set a goal to raise $1,000. After two weeks of collecting donations, the Mustangs raised $2,421.25. “I’m impressed with this school. You guys raised a lot of money,” Katie Vescelus, Matthias’ mother, said. “Nothing is cooler

than kids helping other kids. You guys did a great job.” During a school-wide assembly announcing the total amount, students also received another treat as Noblesville School Board member Pat Berghoff allowed three students to shave his head. “I’ve never had my head shaved before,” he said. “Hair grows back and doesn’t change who you are.” “I’ve never seen his hair that short,” Berghoff’s wife, Cathy, said. Berghoff, a vice president at First Merchants Bank, also presented St. Baldrick’s with a $1,160 check from First Merchants employees and a $3,000 donation from the bank. “It’s amazing how much you were able to accomplish,” he told the students. “A little effect goes a long way.”

Bill sidetracked – The Senate has voted to move a bill that would have expanded mass transit in Central Indiana into a summer study committee. The bill would have allowed area residents to vote on higher income taxes to pay for the proposed 10-year, $1.3-billion project. The expansion proposal would expand mass transit options from Noblesville to downtown Indianapolis with bus service and rail lines. The bill passed the House but encountered Republican opposition in the Senate. Republican Appropriations Committee Chairman Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) dropped his sponsorship of the bill in March.

“We asked families in this community what they wanted in a hospital, and we’re excited to show the results.” GAry FAmmArtino Administrator St.Vincent Fishers Hospital

St.Vincent has been providing the people of Indiana with compassionate care for more than 130 years. And now the tradition continues in Hamilton County with St.Vincent Fishers Hospital. The new hospital is focused on wellness and prevention, and provides the people of the surrounding communities with access to the latest treatment options.

Refund returns millions to Hoosiers Commentary by State Rep. Kathy Richardson In 2011, the General Assembly wanted to keep government spending in check and ensure, once government collections were at a prudent and sustainable level, that the remainder would be returned to taxpayers. This year’s tax filing is the first time this money has been available, providing some tax relief for Hoosiers in the amount of $111 for single filers and $222 for joint filers. As of last week, more than 1.5 million taxpayers had already taken advantage of Indiana’s Automatic Taxpayer Refund credit with $171 million being returned. The state projects that approximately $361 million will be returned to taxpayers this tax season, a nice way to start off the spring season. Funded entirely out of excess reserves at the close of fiscal year 2012, the ATR also allocated an equal share to shoring up state pensions: Judges Pension Fund ($90.2 million); Conservation, Gaming, and Excise Officers’ Pension Fund ($14.6 million); Prosecutors’ Pension Fund ($17.4 million); State Police Pension Fund ($31.7 million); and Pre-1996 Teachers’ Retirement Fund ($206.8 million). Indiana is in a rare position, in comparison to many other states, where its pensions are in a strong position because of the fiscal conservatism demonstrated by the General Assembly.

Many other states are struggling to make pension payments and have allowed their pensions system to sink deeper into the red, i.e. our neighbor to the west, Illinois. But, in Indiana, the Hoosier way of balancing a check book and paying for what is owed is the heart and soul of our state’s budget. This year’s budget has passed the House with these same principles. It is currently being discussed and debated in the Senate, and I look forward to their constructive ideas to move Indiana forward. Having the ability to provide tax relief is something Hoosiers can be proud of in their state government as other states weigh tax increases and bigger government. Our focus will continue to be on strengthening Indiana by prioritizing private sector job growth, providing a first class education system and limiting the tax burden facing Hoosiers. For more information on the ATR credit, visit, or if you have any questions specific to your return, contact the Dept. of Revenue at 232-2240 or contact them online at Kathy Richardson (R-Noblesville) is the state representative for District 29. She can be reached at h29@

Purdue Glee Club member Roy Johnson, Jr., returns to NHS to perform Sunday By Robert Herrington • During his senior year of high school, Roy Johnson, Jr. spent a lot of time on the Noblesville High School auditorium stage. He was a member of the NHS Singers with whom he sang and danced in public shows and competitions and was the male lead in the school musical. On Sunday, Johnson will return to the auditorium stage as a college senior and member of the Purdue University Glee Club. “It’s a tradition for a lot of guys during their senior year. It’s special to them because they get to show off what they’ve been doing in college,” he said. The Purdue Varsity Glee Club will perform at 4 p.m. Sunday in the auditorium, 18111 Cumberland Rd. The show will be a fundraiser for the NHS music department, which also will perform on stage with the Glee Club. “It’s a cool experience for both sides,” Johnson said. “I’m really looking forward to the show and seeing a lot of people there.” Johnson began singing at church and his elementary school before becoming more involved with Noblesville Schools’ choirs in fourth through 12th grades. Following graduation, Johnson said he thought he would not be involved with music at college at all and would focus on his schoolwork instead. “I was in the shooting club, fencing club but nothing was purely what I enjoyed and loved doing. I remembered how much I really enjoyed singing and performing,” he said. “My grandpa said he wanted me to join the glee club. I really missed performing.” While rooming with some of his friends from Noblesville his sophomore year, Johnson participated in the Residence Halls Got Talent show, where his group placed third. One of the judges was a Purdue Music Organizations director who suggested Johnson try out for the glee club, which he auditioned for later that year and became a member of his junior year. “I never thought about it. I turned a blind eye and forgot about it,” he said. “It’s a huge time commitment, but it becomes a part of you and a great part of your life. There are a lot of great experiences that come from it.” In addition to the glee club, Johnson is part of a four-member special group – Ba Na Na, which sings ’50s and ’60s rock and roll. “We perform during the halftime part of every show,” he said. Johnson auditioned for the group during his second year in the

glee club as a way to become more involved. “I love that music. I grew up with it and my dad singing it,” he said. “My favorite song we sing is ‘Jump, Jive & Wail.’ It’s a lot of fun and really high energy.” Johnson will graduate from Purdue in May. He plans to attend law school in the fall and hopes to pursue civil liberties or civil rights law. “I haven’t decided what aspect of law. I’ve looked at international business to patent law,” he said. One of the perks that come with the glee club is the extensive traveling it does. During spring break, the members had traveled to Tennessee, Florida and Washington, D.C., to perform. The group also has performed locally at professional sporting events in Indianapolis including Super Bowl Village last year. “We’re heading to Europe for 14 days a few days after graduation,” Johnson said. “The glee club will be performing at Sunday Mass at the Notre Dame Cathedral. That’s something I couldn’t dream of before this.” Current in Noblesville

Age: 23 Hometown: Noblesville Birthplace: Indianapolis Education: Graduated from Noblesville High School in 2008 and will graduate from Purdue University with a degree in political science in May. He plans to attend law school in the fall. Hobbies: Singing, playing video games, hanging out with friends, movies, reading and shooting sports. Favorite high school memory: The friendships made in choir and the songs they sang. Johnson said his last MayDay concert was particularly memorable since the guys in choir created a medley of songs using the names of the female choir members. Favorite music artist: Muse Personal motto: “The man who thinks he can” is our family poem. Johnson said the most memorable trip was to Washington, D.C., last year when the club sang “It is Well With My Soul” at the Lincoln Memorial. “It was an extremely emotional time for all of us,” he said. “It was the perfect place for it and a great memory.” Johnson credits his parents with his love of music and vocal gifts. For 20 years, Roy Johnson, Sr., performed and toured in “The Johnsons,” a group he created with his brother, Gary, and sister, Jean. “The Johnsons” began as a trio and grew into a sevenpiece show band traveling across the nation and performing on USO tours. “The band started in college and went 17 years out of school. We were doing something you totally love to do and it’s neat seeing him enjoying that same enjoyment,” the elder Johnson said. “His mother (Judi) and I are both really, really proud of him and what he’s accomplished.” It was the senior Johnson who approached NHS Music Director Angie Resler about doing the show as a fundraiser. “These kids have sold flowers, plants and just about everything under the sun,” he said. “We thought, ‘Why not have a concert as the primary fundraiser?’ We put together a marketing plan and the sponsors are helping make this possible and a success. Instead of $25 to $50 tickets each, we’re selling them for $10 so everyone can come watch them.” Know more – The Purdue Varsity Glee Club will perform at 4 p.m. Sunday in the Noblesville High School auditorium, 18111 Cumberland Rd. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. The show will be a fundraiser for the NHS competition choirs, which also will perform on stage with the Glee Club. Purdue senior and NHS graduate Roy Johnson, Jr. will be featured in the show. Tickets are $10. For more information, call 773-4146. April 9, 2013 | 11

VIEWS Opinion

NPD shows heart, aims to save lives

Child's play

It is our position that overly restrictive homeowners associations can quickly become perversions of the freedoms they are meant to provide. HOA’s continue to be a power force in self-government. Unsatisfied with services provided by the local municipalities or desirous of even more selfconstraint, these groups have become ubiquitous in residential development in the US. While designed to maintain property values by requiring minimum standards of care, they are too often used to constrain even the most innocuous of individual liberties. Much attention has been given to those groups that have prevented the display of the American flag, claiming that flags, regardless of their nationality, are garish distractions from the bucolic nature of the subdivision. This week it was reported that another zealous Florida HOA has voted to restrict children’s outdoor play. Bicycles and ball play are among the many forms specifically listed for prohibition. The HOA authorities claim the rules are intended to “keep the kids safe” and free from threat. Perhaps, but we are inclined to believe it is another example of small minds with unrestrained power. While we defend the right of associations, we abhor retroactive moves on legitimate property rights.

Wanting to have to…

Commentary by Terry Anker

What defines the best in human relationships? Is it the setting and pursuing of shared goals? Is it in defining roles and specializing in optimal outcomes? Or, is it simply in being supportive – in carrying the burden when one’s partner cannot? Perhaps, depending on the relationship and the circumstance, they are all true to some degree. But aren’t the superlative relationships about bolstering, even challenging, the other person to be the very best that they can be? As it relates to my colleagues and teammates, the best help me strengthen my weaknesses and fully use my best attributes. With my children, they push me to be a better parent with each new phase and difficult question, just as I urge them to become fully independent and functioning humans. With my spouse, the relationship continues to evolve, even as we mature further into adulthood. Boundaries are established, challenged and redefined. And, it is good. While in each of

these associations, respect, support and even love, are required, isn’t a reasonable performance expectation also necessary? While vacationing a few years ago, I was planted at my laptop with a phone to my ear. My family was dressed and ready to head-out for a day of roller coasters. Feeling the pressure to depart, I exclaimed that I “had” to work longer. Calmly, my wife took me aside and reminded me that while I could work if I chose, it was not required. She was right. I like to work. I’d do it all the time if I could. But doesn’t my bargain with those around me require that I invest in them too? Wasn’t claiming that I had no choice simply giving me a pass to do what I wanted? It was time to stop working and go visit a giant mouse.

And to that end, the department recently landed a grant to buy another AED, courtesy of the National Heart Council. With this wonderful news, NPD moves one step closer to saving more lives. The AEDs are deployed in life-threatening cardiac episodes. The department says its personnel reach for an AED an average of three times a month and actually put it to use between one and three times a year. Of course, everyone hopes to not have to use the equipment, but putting the department in a position of being able to save a life is critical, we believe. States Jowitt: “When an emergency situation such as cardiac arrest occurs, police officers are often the first ones on the scene. The quicker a victim receives treatment, the greater the chances he or she will survive.” Keep applying for those grants, and congratulations to NPD on this latest victory. ••• This, too, is a good thing: The City of Noblesville Fund, a segment of Legacy Fund, and Duke Energy, awarded $14,700 in grants to Noblesville for permanent recycling bins in downtown Noblesville, answering a longstanding need downtown. “We are very excited to receive these grants to make the bins a reality,” Mayor John Ditslear stated. The bins will be in place by late spring and will be maintained by the Street Dept.

Chambers support mass transit

Editors, We respectfully disagree with Current’s From the Backshop on March 26, “Mass transit: ‘No’ to a tax increase,” and particularly take issue with the statement, “We get that mass transit could become an economic development engine … as long as it’s not on the taxpayers’ backs.” First, no transit systems operate at a profit. Our roads, bridges, pothole fixes and the fuel we put in our cars are not without taxpayer support. The investment in a transit system is an investment in economic development, quality of life and in ensuring our region remains a strong choice for business development and relocation. Second, the bill under consideration will provide citizens with a choice – the opportunity to vote for public transit via referendum. Why would we oppose the public’s right to choose? Finally, getting people to jobs is not “nonsense.” Not if you’re an employee trying to get

or keep a job and have no transportation available. And not if you’re a company with open jobs and people anxious to fill them if they could get to you. Whether we like it or not, any demographic study you choose will indicate that two large groups of people – both the baby boomers and those now entering the job market – no longer prefer their lives to be dictated by an automobile. The regions that respond to those needs will win new businesses and new residents and thrive. That’s why our chambers, as well as the Hamilton County Business Issues Committee, comprising all six chambers in the county, are supporting HB 1011.

The other side of the story

Dear Danielle Wilson, My daughter is one of the “bullies” and my husband is one of the “jerks” that annihilated your cookie-cake-eating basketball team ... by one point. Danielle, really, you don’t lose a game to a bunch of “tall,” “scary,” “extremely aggressive” bullies by one point if your team isn’t aggressive, too. Here’s the real story. The game began in dispute when your coaches insisted that colored wristbands were required to match up players. They also insisted that switching on defense was illegal, and pressured our referee, a teenaged girl, until she enforced both rules. Later, my husband, Coach “Jerk,” followed up with league officials, and learned that we had been duped on both counts – wristbands are not required, and switching is legal and encouraged by the league. Yet, you accused our coaches of cheating! Also, in the game which immediately followed, your team played another team, and they were NOT using wristbands. Hmmm ... who really cheated? Regarding the incident where our player “literally threw” your player to the ground, and was “screaming at the ref,” let’s not forget that our “fouler” and your player had BOTH been play-

ing an aggressive game. “Fouler” only shoved in retaliation for a smack in the face, which was not called. Coach “Jerk” (encouraging “an atmosphere of disrespect and bullying,” no doubt), fully supported the referee, and benched “fouler” for the remainder of the game. Prior to getting benched, “fouler” did scream at the ref, “she hit me first!” That’s when your coach walked onto the floor, grabbed our thirdgrade girl by the shoulders, and publicly reprimanded her! This is what prompted our other coach to come off of the bench and confront your coach. Never, never, never should a coach lay his hands on a player – particularly another team’s player! So, Danielle, be careful who you “shame!” Your own “good sport” coaches who duped us on the rules, bullied the referee and grabbed a thirdgrade girl are the ones who should apologize. Shame on you for publishing such a onesided story about Third. Grade. Girls. p.s. My “Jerk” DID shake hands with your team and coaches, and he’s NOT your fan, any more!

Now, it’s migraine madness Commentary by Danielle Wilson I’ve experienced a few migraines in my day, but I don’t consider myself a perennial sufferer. I’m hoping the headache I survived last weekend is not a sign of things to come. Here’s what happened. My husband, Doo, and I were out shopping at Fry’s. If you’ve never been, think Walmart meets Best Buy with a dash of Menards. I needed a new camera, as I abandoned my last one in the bottom of a beach bag. During the course of its exile, the salt and sand conspired to cement the lens shut. Anyhoo, we’d located a replacement and were browsing through the laptop sector when I started having vision issues. I thought it was due to all the flashing electronics but warned Doo, “If I go down, check for stroke.” We chuckled and continued on. Part of me thought I was imagining the floaters and blind spots – after all, my last migraine was in 2004 − so I kept trying to focus on the carpet and Doo’s shoes. By the time we had paid and made our way to the car though, I was fairly certain I was in trouble. Next up on our Saturday itinerary was Costco of all places, so I played the mind-overmatter card. You are fine. You will not develop a headache. We really needed toilet paper! But a mild pain began right in between my eyes as I

searched for a parking spot, and after reaching the frozen foods, a mere five minutes later, I was scouring the place for a restroom in case of an emergency heave. Doo stared at me and said, “Do we need to go?” I nodded, and sprinted for the exit. We hadn’t put one thing in our cart, and that’s saying something at Costco. With Doo at the wheel and me practicing Lamaze in the reclined passenger seat, we raced for home. The pain was unbearable, and I couldn’t clamp down on the nausea. Doo got me the Fry’s bag moments before the dry heaving hit. Once home, the real show started, along with short bursts of intense pain behind my left eye. Lying down in my dark, quiet bedroom did little to alleviate the migraine, as I prayed for sweet Jesus to just let me pass out. Eventually I did doze off, and woke an hour or so later with no headache. That’s the strangest part about migraines for me, how quickly they come and go. I just hope this was a once-in-a-decade thing. We still need toilet paper! Peace out.

Each only did five in each collection and entered in a drawing for a prize from district merchants. Singer and guitarist Matt Ruddick two artist proofs,” Lurie said. also will be playing live in the district. Lurie said Bennett, Leighton and Veasey were Jason Bennett – Bennett has always pursued photography as a process – one that deals inherently with the nature of time. To invent this work, he started with several hundred images, precisely collected during a period of days and relative distance. The fourth dimension, time is created through the combination of the depth and time axis. And thus left to right becomes past and future. The ability to trick the mind so completely is a window into perception and the interconnectedness of our senses.

Nick Veasey – Veasey worked in the advertising and design industries and pursued work in conventional still photography before making the serendipitous discovery of applying X-ray imaging to everyday objects and skeletons after being asked to X-ray a cola can for a television show. Veasey also X-rayed the shoes he was wearing on the day and upon showing the finished image to an art director, was galvanized by the response it provoked.

“We encourage people to bring kids. We want children to be exposed to art – it broadens the minds of our young people,” Lurie said. Galleries involved include ArtSplash, Coats Wright Art & Design, Evan Lurie Gallery, Eye on Art Gallery, French Bleu Gallery, Magdalena Gallery of Art, Mary Johnston Studio, Soori Gallery and Trilridge Fine Art. “We’re here to help people understand art,” Lurie said. “It’s a nice cultural experience and a great date night – go out and be involved in things educational and engaging. Do something you don’t get to do every day or see every day.” For the monthly walks, all galleries try to feature at least one artist at the event. “We help encourage people to get educated in art and discover what you like,” he said. “Art is a reflection of our society and cultural identity… Embrace your own taste, identity. Art is a reflection of our own inner soul.” If you want to buy a particular piece, Lurie said artwork in all galleries is for sale. “Art doesn’t have to be expensive to be good,” he said. For more information, visit Tom Leighton – Leighton’s new works reveal the poetic beauty that can result from painstaking digital manipulation. He has travelled through Europe, Asia and North America, building an impressive body of photographic images that he then combines to make fantastical landscapes. Leighton’s images abound with groups of buildings, people, objects – like in Golden Gate or Paris 1. For more biography information, visit

NIGHT & DAY Et cetera

‘Hyde Park on Hudson’ • R, 95 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd “Hyde Park on Hudson” exists in that nether realm floating somewhere between history, biography and legend. Its central characters are none other than Franklin D. Roosevelt, the King and Queen of England, and FDR’s contingent of relatives and retainers. But the film is not so much about the real people as our modern conception of them. It’s now well known that Roosevelt, despite being trapped in a body crippled by polio, was a serial philanderer. Bill Murray, hardly anybody’s first thought for the actor who should embody FDR, nonetheless creates a distinct and compelling character that, if he is not reflective of the actual president, at least makes us want the real person to resemble his portrait.

The movie’s central problem is that it’s not really about FDR or the monarchs, but about Daisy, Roosevelt’s sixth cousin played by Laura Linney, who acts as the audience’s eyes and ears. A desperately lonely spinster, Daisy is thrilled by an unexpected invitation to join Roosevelt at the familial estate, where she and the president form a queer relationship that navigates somewhere beyond friendship but does not quite make landfall with romance. The film is enjoyable in its parts, even if they don’t quite fit together satisfactorily. Movie: B-minus Read more of Chris Lloyd’s review of current films and DVDs at www. or www.

HEALTH Wellness

Is it a cold or an allergy? Commentary by Chintan Amin Springtime generally signals the beginning of allergy season. During this time of year, people with nasal congestion often wonder whether their symptoms are caused by allergies or the common cold. Because the symptoms of allergies and colds are similar, it’s often difficult to tell which condition is the culprit – especially in early spring when seasonal allergies are just starting to flare up. It’s important to understand the differences between colds and allergies. Colds can be caused by many different viruses, and the germs are contagious. Cold sufferers may experience a variety of symptoms, including stuffy nose, sore throat and cough. In many cases, our immune system fights off a cold within several days, but this can be affected by other health conditions you may have. Allergies are not caused by viruses. They are caused by an immune system response to an allergen, such as pollen or dust. The body responds to the allergen by releasing a chemical, histamine, which can cause a runny nose, cough, sneezing and swollen nasal passages. Also, allergy sufferers commonly complain of itchy, watery eyes, which is generally not a cold

symptom. Allergies are not contagious. To tell whether your symptoms are related to a cold or allergies, consider these factors. Colds typically last from three to 14 days, while allergy symptoms can continue for days or months, depending on how long you are exposed to the allergen. While some allergies are seasonal, an allergic reaction causing nasal congestion or other symptoms can happen at any time of the year, as long as the allergen is present. On the other hand, many colds occur during winter. Also, with a cold, symptoms take a few days to develop after infection with the virus, but with allergies, symptoms can begin right after exposure to the allergen. If you are uncertain whether you have a cold or allergies, and your symptoms persist for more than 14 days, schedule an appointment with your doctor (sooner, if symptoms worsen or you have other health conditions). There are many remedies for treating allergies, including nasal steroids to reduce swelling, and allergy shots. Chintan Amin, MD, specializes in internal medicine.

Make your pool claim-ready Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Susan Q. from Carmel: We’re starting to think warm thoughts, despite the never-ending winter, and that means opening up our pool in the next month or so. How do we make sure we have all of our bases covered when it comes to protecting ourselves? What are the big issues? Response from Jamie Ianigro: The most important thing to remember as a pool owner is to make sure that your insurance agent knows you have a pool. Failure to notify your agent can result in denied claims and the liability risk falling completely on you. This is very important to remember if you add a pool to your existing property. Not having the pool on your policy can expose you to some serious unwanted risks.  Carriers have varying requirements and pricing schemes when it comes to pools.  Independent insurance agencies have access to many carriers and will be able to find the best combination of price and coverages for your needs. We recommend at least $1 million in liability coverage for all of our clients that have a homeowner’s policy. I would also advise adding an additional $1 million of coverage by adding an


umbrella liability policy to protect you and your family against catastrophic claims. Having adequate insurance in place protects your assets if an incident occurs, but it does nothing to prevent something from happening. Liability almost always falls on the pool owner and staying on top of your responsibility to keep your pool safe and secure is just as important as having the proper insurance in place. A safety pool cover protected by lock and key is probably the best place to start. A quality cover completely seals the pool and prevents accidental access to the water by unwanted visitors, children and pets. Making sure your pool is protected by a fence is also a good idea, but no fence is unconquerable. It’s also important to remember that claims can happen no matter what you do to prevent them. You buy insurance to protect yourself and your family. Facing a liability claim without an insurance company standing by your side can make an already unpleasant situation much worse.

Home sales continue to rise By Jim Litten • More than 2,000 homes pended in February, with all but one Central Indiana county reporting increased sales compared to the same time last year, according to statistics compiled by F.C. Tucker Co. Overall, February 2013 pended home sales rose 8.1 percent over February 2012, an increase of 152 homes sold in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. Real estate sales are off to a good start this year, and as the national economy has improved, we are seeing a spark in the local housing market as well. Hamilton County is one of the areas in Central Indiana seeing positive trends. • In Hamilton County last month, 392 homes pended which is an increase of 20 homes compared to February of last year. • Specifically in Noblesville, 69 homes pended in February 2013 – an increase of 9.5 percent compared to February 2012.

• Housing prices in Noblesville continue to make year-over-year gains. Last month, the average sales price climbed to $214,733, an increase of 33.7 percent compared to February of last year. • Of the pended home sales in Noblesville last month, one was priced $500,000 to $999,999; seven were priced $300,000 to $499,999; 11 were priced $200,000 to $299,999; 46 were priced $100,000 to $199,999; and four were priced at $99,999 or less. • Prospective home buyers in Noblesville are discovering the supply of available homes is getting smaller. Last month, 380 homes were on the market, down 12.2 percent compared to February 2012. With the national unemployment rate at its lowest level in four years and the stock market experiencing a rebound, we anticipate that confidence will grow here in Central Indiana and continue to fuel housing sales.

That or which? Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question: That was good stuff on the “that,” “who,” “whom” topic. How about a follow-up on the distinction between “that” and “which?” (Patti Hauck) Answer: Thanks for writing in, Patti. Happy to oblige. Much like the rule for choosing between “that” and “who/whom,” the “that/which” rule can be a simple one to master, once you get the hang of it. As a pronoun, “that” is used to introduce restrictive clauses. These are clauses which are essential to the meaning of the sentence. For example: “The car that hasn’t moved in a month finally got towed.” Without “that” and its restrictive clause, we wouldn’t know which car got towed. “Which,” as you may have guessed, is used to begin non-restrictive or parenthetical clauses. These are clauses which can be removed from the Social media faux pas – The rules of how to act on social media are changing all the time. Jessica French, social media coordinator at PLA Media, recommends not syncing music streaming program Spotify with your Facebook account. If you do, everyone will know you’re a Justin Bieber fan, or worse. –

sentence without dramatically altering its meaning. For example: “My guitar, which is acoustic, is my favorite possession.” If we removed “which is acoustic” from the sentence, it would still convey the same message: I like my guitar. Just to illustrate the distinction between “that” and “which, let’s look at the sentence another way. If I had said, “My guitar that is acoustic is my favorite possession,” there is the implication that I have other guitars which aren’t acoustic. So there we go: “That” and “which” in a nutshell. If the clause is necessary to the sentence, we’re going with “that.” If not, “which” is our pronoun. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing.

Sports journey – Some sports fans like to make a “pilgrimage” that takes them across the United States and into famed ball parks. AP writer Michael Liedtke is just one of many baseball fans that aims to visit all 30 MLB stadiums, and he points out that you can buy maps and other memorabilia to keep track of which ones you still need to see. Liedtke says he’s had many unexpected traveling experiences along the way, all because he made a point to see a baseball stadium. –

MESMERIZING EYES “Attraction between two people begins with a gaze,” says anthropologist David B. Givens, PhD. Your eyes are your most magnetic feature, they actually possess the ability to draw someone to you. Enhancing your peepers with makeup conveys confidence because it says that you want people to look at you. To ensure your eyes look their biggest, brightest and most captivating, make sure you pick the right shadow shade for your eye color. Green-eyed girls can make their eyes more piercing with plum or lavender shades, but be sure to avoid the true red shadows like brick or burgundy. To highlight the natural beauty of blue eyes, use a shadow that has hints of the opposite color family: orange. Earthy tones like chocolate, bronze and gold colors work great, as well as brighter tangerines. Brown-eyed girls look hot in a variety of shades. But to make your eyes really pop, try a blue-based color. A cobalt, navy or violet will really bring out your rich chocolate eye color!

EYELASH EXTENSIONS Celebrities are known for their impeccable looks, slim physiques, and the endless amount of help they have to achieve this ideal image. While we would all love to have a team getting us ready in the morning, an hour or two in the salon can be just the trick to minimizing your morning prep time and adding effortless glamour to your everyday style. Eyelash extensions are the newest way to get incredible style with minimal effort. Why try them? Extensions are semi-permanent, weightless, water-resistant, and last up to four weeks. The application is a painless, relaxing procedure that can take as little as a half hour from start to finish. You’ll notice increased length and thickness even without mascara. What are they? Salon 01 uses Xtreme Lashes that are composed of single strands of synthetic lashes curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied directly to the individual eyelashes, one at a time by our certified Xtreme Lash specialist, Kelly. Are they safe? Xtreme Lashes was developed by a team of scientists, physicians, and lash stylists under the direction of the founder Jo Mousselli, who is a registered nurse. Because such a diverse team was involved in creating the lashes, they are of the highest safety, quality, and performance standards. Call Salon 01 to book your consultation today! 317-580-0101.

HOT HAIR IN A FLASH Just because you are pressed for time doesn’t mean you can’t look sleek and stylish when stepping out!

Simple master-bedroom changes

Children’s Program Advocate – Prevail, Inc. Location: Noblesville, IN Type: Full Time Organization: Prevail, Inc.

Commentary by David Decker Does your master bedroom need a bit of makeover? Here’s the good news; a beautiful master bedroom doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag. All you need is a bit of spare time and a few simple decorative elements to completely reinvent the look of the room. Here are five quick and easy ways to update your master bedroom without breaking the bank. Lighting: Lighting is an essential decorative element, especially in the home. Proper lighting makes color more vibrant, while drastically affecting the energy of the room. Decide on the type of atmosphere you’d like to create in your master bedroom and formulate how the lighting can help you achieve this look. Softer lighting will create a more elegant feel while bright lighting will make the room cheerful and inviting. You could even install a dimmer switch to adjust the lighting depending on your activity or mood. Lighting Fixtures: And of course, lighting fixtures are an important decorative element. Replace your old table or floor lamps with new ones that feature a different style. Install a few sconces along the walls. You could also consider swapping your old ceiling fixture with a chandelier. New Hardware: You don’t need to order an entirely new bedroom suite to create a new

style. Try swapping out your existing hardware and drawer pulls for new ones. You’ll be amazed at the difference new hardware can make. Add a Mirror: Mirrors can instantly add polish and drama while creating the illusion of space. The reflective surface will also brighten the room. Plus, with all of the different styles, textures and shapes available, you’ll be sure to find one that compliments the atmosphere you’re trying to design.   New Décor: There’s no reason to make sweeping décor changes. If you are redesigning on a tight budget, focus on the small details. Update with a fresh coat of paint and a new color palette. Choose a new duvet cover, or simply change out your throw pillows. Changing out little details, such as table lamps, picture frames or potted plants can make a big difference.
