» What is sexual violence? Any act sexual in nature, whether verbal or physical, that breaks a person’s trust, violates their safety, or impedes upon their sexual autonomy. Sexual violence includes and is not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape. – PAVE
» The facts about rape and sexual assault • Every two and a half minutes, somewhere in America, someone has chosen to sexually assault someone else. • About 50 percent of rape victims are under 18 years of age when they are victimized. • Youths 12-17 are two to three times more likely to be sexually assaulted than adults. • 78 percent of teenage victims do not tell their parents about the incident, while 71 percent tell a friend. • 73 percent of sexual assaults were perpetrated by a non-stranger with 38 percent of those being a friend or acquaintance of the victim • 75 percent of acquaintance rapes involve alcohol. • The risk of rape is four times higher for women aged 16-24 than for any other age group. • 1 in 4 college women surveyed are victims of rape or attempted rape. • Stats from the National Institute of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that approximately 15 percent of women are raped at some point in their lives. Of these victims, approximately 85 percent do not report the crime to police. Source: Prevail, Inc.
Find cancer early. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 48,010 people will be diagnosed with head and neck cancer this year. Many of those are related to tobacco use, while others may have a relationship to viral causes such as HPV and Epstein-Barr virus. When irregularities are found very early through a quick and painless physical examination of the mouth, facial area and neck, these cancers can be more easily treated without significant complications.

It is our position that we Americans should remember to make the display of our national flag an important part of our summer ritual. As Butler Bulldogs signage is still hanging in shop windows around town, we are reminded that Old Glory is all too often neglected in our collective “brand identity.” Shouldn’t we all include an American Flag as a part if the plan for our offices and homes? Yet many of us, even when we are happy to hoist a banner for a local sports team, neglect the colors of our country. Certainly, the lack of a flag prominently displayed does not necessarily correspond with a failure of patriotism. But it does imply a lack of attention to the matter. When national holiday’s looms or an international crisis brews, we remember the home team. But this year, we should work to make flag display and presentation a part of our spring cleaning and preparation. Reminders of America cannot be confined to date-specific retail holidays. Consider a flag pole and appropriate lighting when working on a landscape plan. Consider the Stars & Stripes when decorating an office. It is always in good taste. And it is always the right thing to do.
Stand and be counted
It is our position that, in the words of a famed Hoosier poet and singer, you’ve got to stand for something or you will fall for anything. Many credit Seymour, Indiana native John “Cougar” Mellencamp for bringing that truism into pithy light. Others debate the specific origins of the phrase. We like Peter Marshall, the World War II U.S. Senate Chaplain, for praying, “Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for -because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.” Today, we are locked in debate between often conflicting desires to protect liberty and to provide for the weak. The important message whether from an 80’s rocker or 40’s bureaucrat is that we must express our view. Routinely, we decide our own unworthiness to cast a vote. Driven by a lack of data or understanding, we simply “give” our vote to those who have bothered to become informed. Well, now is our chance. The spring election remains weeks away. Read about candidates. Check out their Web sites. Call them if you have time. But we must become informed and vote.

From the backshop Government’s nose in the kids’ business Truth: We offer paid and unpaid internships to a select number of college students each year, because we want them to experience the editorial model by which we produce these newspapers. We’re trying to shape the future of community journalism, one intern at a time. Unemployment among those in the internship-age pool is at 16 percent. If we can do anything to help those get into the industry on solid footing, we certainly will do so. The U.S. Labor Department couldn’t possibly care less that we still consider ourselves a startup. It wants to force us, and the rest of the domestic business arena, to pay the unpaid as we do the others. We can’t do that on our budget – and unlike the federal government, we stick to the conventions of our financial plan. We actually believed the feds would appreciate us trying to help the unpaid interns at least get a leg up as they prepare to enter the job market. How Labor’s message actually helps youthful journalists hone marketable employment attributes is a stunning puzzle. The ones who work for Current Publishing are gathering experience and samples for their portfolios they might not otherwise would have been able to attain.
Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg ••• It’s time for a change in service of Indiana’s fifth Congressional district. Dan Burton – again - is the incumbent in this race, and we believe he has served far longer than reasonable. Holding that seat is not a right, it’s a privilege, and we need new blood to show that. Sadly, it could come down to campaign financing, and Burton has a stash. One of the challengers, we hope, will have enough firepower and gas money to get around Hamilton County and convince voters that it is, indeed, time for a freshman representative from our district. Our county’s voters CAN make a difference. We hope they do.
Traveling together, growing together COMMENTARY By Terry Anker Each time we travel together on a family vacation, we learn something about each other. That, perhaps, more than any other reason, is why we continue to make the effort to take them. It is certainly not without difficulty to travel with generations ranging from grade school to Grandma. Let’s see, do we shop at outlets or go race go-carts?. But with some effort and empathy we manage to find middle-ground. Maybe it is precisely the time that passes between them that makes the trips magical. Each year, so much has changed. Children mature, and adults transform at a rate seldom noticed on an hourly interval. But when measured in months, the differences are brought into high contrast. Among the many wonderful things that came to light in this family jaunt was the budding compassion of our eldest. Long suffering from a stomach prone to reaction brought on by strong odors and all things “gross,” he barely survived the diaper stage for his younger
brother. But on this trip, he was seated in the far rear seat of the family truckster enroute to a far-away beach destination. His only company was our crated five-month-old puppy, Rex. Much to the consternation of both dog and owner, the trip was not proceeding well. Our vet is fond of saying that dogs express stress through their gastro-intestinal systems. Suffice it to say, this outing convinced us of that fact. But on this trip, in spite of considerable agitation, our eldest calmly and without fanfare worked to clean what was undoubtedly a dirty carrier and dog – several times – and putting aside his own discomfort tried to calm the pet. It led to a good conversation about the care and feeding of human babies. Without hours together, we would have missed it, and that made the drive worthwhile.

All-America City honor would be the best one yet COMMENTARY By Zach Dunkin First, Noblesville was named the 10th best community in America in Bert Sperling’s book, “Best Places to Raise your Family.” Then, came Family Circle magazine’s pick as one of the 10 best towns in the U.S. for families. Those are just two noteworthy honors bestowed upon Noblesville of late. But now, for the first time, Noblesville finds itself in the running for its biggest honor yet – the title of All-America City. The town is on National Civic League’s short list of 26 finalists for 2010. The NCL annually selects 10 cities for the country’s oldest and most prestigious civic recognition award. The winners will be announced June 18. Noblesville was the only Hoosier finalist. Hopefully, the fact that two Indiana cities, Fort Wayne, a three-time winner, and Richmond, were named All-America Cities last year, won’t hurt its chances. In 1958, Bloomington was the first Hoosier town to receive the honor, Others include: Michigan City (1965), South Bend (1967), New Albany (1968), Indianapolis (1970), Anderson (1976), Vincennes (1978), Greencastle (1991), Columbus (1994), Lafayette (1995) and Evansville (2004). Of course, Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear was ecstatic about the news and explained what it could mean to Noblesville.
“If a company’s site selection committee is considering multiple communities in which to locate or relocate their business, then being a recipient of this award would help us to stand out from the competition,” he said. To qualify, each community submitted an application documenting three projects that addressed their most pressing challenges. Noblesville presented: • How the Corporate Campus and Downtown Strategic Development Plan were designed to help maintain a strong sense of community despite Noblesville’s large growth of population • How money for roads and infrastructure projects have helped the city keep up with the extraordinary growth • How the Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department’s programs and services have been greatly expanded to meet the needs of the community’s children and adults. In a press release from the NCL, president Gloria Rubio-Cortes said towns like Noblesville “give us hope and inspiration and teach us important lessons about leveraging the civic energy of ordinary people to address difficult challenges during some very tough economic times.” Zach Dunkin is the managing editor for Current in Noblesville.

Readers' views Read it twice, but no more Editor After twice having read the article, “Is the Hummer Dead (yet)?” (March 23) by Krista Bocko, I will never read another article written by her. How do you equate driving a Hummer with “seeming (sic) narcissism?” Do you want this kind of judgmental diatribe associated with Current in Noblesville? This article is categorized as commentary, not intended to be used as a bully pulpit. Or is it? Have we moved from the
purpose of a news publication to inform and bring new information? Backed by facts, maybe the personal opinions of Ms. Bocko would deserve literary respect. I find her use of the opportunity to speak via the Current not only narcissistic, but poorly deserving. Thank you for the opportunity to bully back. Thank God, this is still America for a while longer. Barbara Purvis 46062
Pit bull critic was out of line Editor In response to “Pit bulls need to be eliminated” (March 30), as far as saying “Were the testers drunken psychos, morally corrupt, drugaddicted or insane?” was way out of line. Were they there when the tests were being done? You can be bitten and even killed by any dog. To single out one certain breed is ridiculous in my opinion. Most people’s opinions have probably been formed by the way the media portrays it

Commentary By Danielle Wilson You know what absolutely drives me crazy? When my kids complain about how their siblings or friends aren’t playing nice: “My brother called me stupid!” “My sister hit me!” “My best friend is being mean!” It’s become so common around our house that, barring blood or the use of the “F” word, my husband and I have declared a moratorium on parental intervention. “Don’t be a victim!” we cry. In other words, stick up for yourself and don’t let others take advantage of you. And for the love of Diet Coke, stop expecting Mommy and Daddy to fight your battles! The first time we took this approach was when our oldest was around five. His BFF was a little older and a bit bigger. Our son used to come home in tears after being bullied. We were certain his friend wasn’t intending to hurt him, but just didn’t know his own strength or our son’s sensitive nature. He was five also, for goodness’ sake. So we told our son the next time his friend hit him to punch him back as hard as he could. And guess what? They’ve been best friends ever since and we’ve never had another incident. It seems that as soon as his friend realized he couldn’t push our son around without getting himself hurt, bullying wasn’t worth it. Both our boys have done pretty well with the “Don’t be a victim” approach, but we haven’t had as much luck with our daughters – could be the natural tendencies of girls and boys, or maybe just their personalities. Regardless, our girls continue to run to us for a ruling and sentencing rather than handle it on their own. But now when my youngest comes crying about how her butthole sister just hijacked her favorite skirt, we listen politely and then say, “Don’t be a victim, Maddie! Go get that skirt back!” And she does.
I think my older daughter is struggling because she’s receiving mixed messages. Her elementary school has been drilling students with the “no fighting” rule pretty hard over the last few months. Contrary to what we say, she’s supposed to find an adult if she gets hit or called a name. And I do agree with this rule in most circumstances. But if a teacher or a parent isn’t around, I believe she has the right to defend herself. If somebody pushes her down, I expect her to fight back. If someone calls her a name, I hope she returns a zinger. Basically, I want my daughter to have the confidence of knowing she can handle situations on her own and that she’s strong enough, emotionally and physically, to stand up to bullies. Because the reality is, there won’t always be someone to save her. Since our Don’t Be a Victim campaign commenced, we’ve noticed a few unexpected results. For one, our kids have begun accepting responsibility for their own roles in confrontations. Without Mom and Dad around, they’re forced to consider how their actions contributed to that retaliatory slap or name-calling and they think twice before prolonging the conflict. Our kids are also figuring out that fighting back proves more of a deterrent than tattle-tailing, and that working it out amongst themselves is more beneficial to everyone in the long run. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” If we can get our kids to believe that, to know that they don’t have to be victims, then I think we’ll have done a good job as parents. Peace out.

Oh where, oh where is our indoor waterpark? COMMENTARY By Leslie Webber After visiting an indoor water park during spring break, our kids have a renewed interest in land development on State Road 37. For two years we’ve been telling them a giant indoor water park is going to open very close to home. We even pointed out the location just south of the Noblesville line. “Stop arguing and look out your window! That’s where the water park will be!” They no longer believe us. From what I’ve read, I’m not sure they should. The proposed hotel and entertainment complex with a 70,000 square foot indoor water park seems to have hit major snags. Not the least of which includes having a chunk of the developer’s land sold back to the bank during a sheriff’s fire sale last December. Things don’t look good for what might have been a fun spot for residents and visitors of Hamilton County. That’s a shame. The empty field, which was once home to a golf course, is in a prime location. I have no doubt an indoor water park would be popular.

The concept is appealing for winter visits, but the fact that sunscreen isn’t necessary makes it incredibly convenient for our fair-skinned family in the summer too. I could save a full two hours a day if I wasn’t constantly reapplying SPF 70 to tiny bodies. There are several hotels that boast massive indoor water parks within driving distance of Noblesville. There’s one in French Lick in Southern Indiana. The Chicagoland area has a handful. Cincinnati has a couple. There are too many to count in the Wisconsin Dells. The north-west side of Indianapolis has Caribbean Cove and judging from the packed parking lot, I would say an indoor water park is an hotelier’s dream. For now, the hope of an indoor water park in Hamilton County seems to have stalled, which means we’re going to have to find a new distraction for the people in the back seat.

Earth Day turns 40; it's a party for all ages
Commentary By Krista Bocko April 24 marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, a day I’ve celebrated for about 25 – wow – 25 years now. I remember my first awareness of Earth Day, how I celebrated it then and still do today. Back then, I volunteered to take over the trash collecting on the side of the road that my parents always did in the spring anyway. I would walk along both sides of the busy state road we lived on, garbage bag in hand, and pick up trash. I was always amazed at, one, that people would actually litter, since purposely throwing trash on the ground is such an obvious wrong and so environmentally disastrous, and, two, the staggering amount of trash that was collected from such a relatively small place. It really saddened me to realize that this disrespect was happening not just in my small corner of the world, but all over. The thing with picking up trash though is that it becomes addictive. Passing by litter will be about impossible, and something you may
ask yourself is: “when will it stop?” I heard someone say once: “No, when will it start?” Every year since I started celebrating Earth Day I have committed (and re-committed) to try to make a difference in my own small way. So this Earth Day, I will take my children on walks through our neighborhood, and we will pick up trash. I encourage you to take your children or your grandchildren and do the same. This is one way we show we care not only for the earth, but for our children. After all, the earth they will inherit is the earth that we leave for them, good or bad. For more information about Earth Day, visit www.earthday.net. Visit www.earthdayindiana. org for Indiana’s 20th Earth Day festival in Indianapolis.

You can GRAND OPENING start while you’re reading this COMMENTARY By April Conard Of all the body parts, I believe that the belly bulge is the one that a lot of us would like to improve upon. Fortunately, of all the muscles we can work, the abs are the easiest. Now, before you start your argument, let me explain. I said this because no special equipment is required to work your core and can be done anywhere, anytime. When teaching aerobics I am always reminding my students to contract their abdominals. There needs to be a clarification on this one, contracting your abs is NOT the same as “sucking it in.” When contracting your muscles you are actually engaging the core, while you continue to breathing and bring in oxygen to burn the fat. There are many fancy machines on TV right now trying to sell you on the ripped abs you will get with this oversized, overpriced product. Not necessary. You don’t even have to get down on the floor and do 500 crunches to work these
muscles. When sitting at a traffic light, try to contract until the light changes; when watching TV contract through the commercials. You can do it whenever, wherever, even while you’re reading this. No excuses. Something else to bear in mind when desiring a glorious washboard is that if you do not work the back muscles, all the sit ups in the world will not show your hard work. Working the opposing muscle group is just as important. Think about it, you wouldn’t just fix the front of your hair and let the back stay in bedhead mode, would you? The “skinny” is that you could be doing a lot more without actually doing more. So, are you contracting right now?

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate your child, that is the question COMMENTARY By Carol Rossetti, N.D. Since April is Autism Awareness month, it’s a good time for parents to get information about vaccinations to protect their babies. Whether or not you believe that vaccinations are a major contributor to autism, here are some facts: • Japan stopped vaccinating their children until after age 2 and the autism rates fell by 75%. • Autism rates have skyrocketed in the past few years. • Mercury (thimerisol) was, until very recently, in all childhood vaccines and is still in the flu shots. Mercury goes directly to the brain and central nervous system of the baby or the developing fetus. Infants’ livers are not mature enough to process these toxins. • The National Institute of Health apparently acknowledged a relationship between vaccines and autism because they created a vaccine injury hotline. • Medical health authorities are members of the allopathic fraternity that employ a number of strategies specifically designed to get parents to submit to vaccination guidelines.
Parents are expected to grant permission to inject their children’s pure and sacred little bodies with more than 30 blends of rare germs, bacteria, and other foul substances -- all before they enter school. Indiana has two exemptions available to parents: a doctor’s note and philosophical reasons. If you are going to vaccinate your babies, here are some things that you must do: • Permit only one vaccine at a time. • Read the vial looking for thimerisol. • They must fill the syringe in front of you and take the vial with you. If something happens, this is your only proof. • If none of this is agreeable with your doctor, find another doctor who is respectful. • You are their only voice and their best protector.

Build your brand; don’t be a ‘me too’ company COMMENTARY By David Cain What does your company stand for? What’s your organization’s unique ability? What makes it different? How does your company stand out from the masses? What makes you the “green apple” in a heaping pile of red apples? Most organizations believe their organization is undeniably linked to certain values or claims that make them distinct. Whether those claims are in reference to exceptional customer service or more focused on high product quality, at the end of the day most companies have something they think they stand for. Volvo, for example, stands for safety, whereas BMW stands for high performance, and Ford focuses its messaging on “built tough.” These companies spend millions to impress upon consumers what their brand stands for, or at least what they want you to think it stands for. It’s important to know who you are and to have an identity in the marketplace If you’ve already determined what your claim to fame is, try running that by a search engine. In today’s world, the marketplace can easily be tested with a simple Google or Bing search. If you think
your company is the best at “telephone skills training in central Indiana,” then search that phrase and see what comes up first. If it’s not you, then you might not be the most notable. It’s a search engine economy, and keywords can reveal a lot about where your company ranks. Everyone has to have a unique ability or value proposition. Distill it to a couple of words so people can understand what you do and what you stand for. Add this new message to your Web site. Include it in your content and keywords. Start using your unique value statement in your marketing materials, and soon you’ll start ranking higher and higher. Once you make it to the top, it’ll be easier for people to find you and easier for them to understand what you do. Too often, the couple of words a company stands for are “me too,” because it has taken ownership of nothing unique.

MONEY MATTERS How often do you spend money on nonessential items like concert tickets, magazine subscriptions, and new clothes? “Pretty much never, because I never have money due to a lack of a job. But, when I do get money for birthdays or Christmas or whatever, it almost always goes to new clothes or movie tickets or meal outings with friends.” Abby Kim Noblesville
“Concretely, I’d say twice a week.” Chris Cashel-Cordo Noblesville
“Not very often. Just occasionally. I only buy new clothes when I need them.”

Don’t be fooled by the old sign hanging above the storefront that still says Gustavo’s Pizza. Inside it’s all Harold’s Pizza. Actually, it’s Fred Marrugo, a pastor in Westfield, who recently bought the shop and appointed Alex Ortiz, a member of his church, as general manager. Ortiz and his father are already established businessmen in Hamilton County, sharing ownership of the successful Delicious Bakery in Westfield. Father and son open the bakery and cafe every morning and then leave at 10 a.m. to open the pizza store. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Harold’s serves a lunchtime buffet of pizza, salad bar and drink for $5.99. Customers can also buy pizza by the slice, calzones, spaghetti, lasagna and ravioli. “We are improving everyday with new kinds of pizza and new items for the salad bar,” said Alex Ortiz. “We want to serve a good quality buffet. Sometimes you go to a buffet, and it’s not the way you like a buffet.

Noblesville native has a special link to 'Follow the North Star' By Zach Dunkin Current in Noblesville The real-life 21st Century citizens who portray the make-believe, costumed inhabitants of 1836 Prairietown are renowned for demonstrating the lifestyle of the day without ever breaking character. Few of them carry the bloodline of Southern slaves to Hamilton County as Larry Duvall does. The computer analyst from Noblesville, who plays a fugitive slave in Conner Prairie’s award-winning “Follow the North Star” program, is a direct descendent of the area’s Roberts Settlement. “My family moved here in the 1830’s, before the time Conner Prairie occurs (1836),” said Duvall. “What’s happening here in the ‘North Star’ program is current with my ancestors.” “Follow the North Star” immerses participants in the life of a fugitive slave, seeking the shelter and passage along the Underground Railroad. The Roberts settlement of Hamilton County was a place where black families could live free. “Back then, there was this migration from North Carolina -- not just the Roberts but Quakers and other families,” explained Duvall. “On the way, some settled in Ohio, others in Rush County in Indiana, while some made it all the way here. “My mother (Jeanetta Duvall) was very involved in the history of the settlement and the people in the area. She grew up with other

Larry Duvall plays Jack Hunter, a fugitive slave hoping to buy back freedom for his wife and son.
descendants in areas 5-10 miles away, like in Arcadia. You knew people from miles around back then, which is a sharp contrast to today when a lot of us barely know our next-door neighbors.” Duvall admits he paid little attention to the history of his family as his mother did. But when she died three years ago a friend of his urged him to volunteer in the North Star program. “She said, ‘You have to do this’ or I probably would not have gotten involved. But once I did, I wanted to find out more about it.”
Duvall portrays Jack Hunter, a fugitive slave scheming with his brother to return to the South to buy freedom for his wife and son with the money the two brothers have saved. During the 90-minute program, small groups of participants take on the roles of fugitive slaves traveling along the Underground Railroad Participants encounter an illegal slave sale, along with a variety of characters including a slave hunter. They are treated as slaves, being told to keep their eyes down and not to speak unless spoken to. It can get pretty intense, said Duvall. “People can have very emotional reaction,” said Duvall. “And it doesn’t necessarily have to do with race as much as it has to do with feeling they are low-class or not part of the mainstream. “They come to Conner Prairie and they see the same thing of being mistreated, in this case a runaway slave, and they get really involved because they have lived it themselves. It’s not a process of watching; it’s actual involvement.”
Area authors, musicians come MINDS-In-Motion together for ‘Blue Stone’ benefit …a revolutionary way to help students achieve optimum potential
By Zach Dunkin Current in Noblesville Tradition is essential to Noblesville author Larry Sweazy, both as writer and a human being. His Josiah Wolfe, Texas Ranger novels are rooted in the past, steeped in tradition and values, yet still relevant today. The Blue Stone Folk School of Noblesville has the same goals. That’s why Sweazy and fellow western novelist Phil Dunlap of Carmel are hosting a fundraiser for the Bluestone Folk School from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. April 17 at Barnes & Noble in the Stony Creek Marketplace at 17090 Mercantile Blvd. Barnes & Noble will donate a portion of all proceeds of sales of the day to the school with a voucher available in-store and at www.larrydsweazy.com. Sweazy will donate 10 per cent of the cover price of both Josiah Wolfe novels, “The Rattlesnake Season” and his recent national release, “The Scorpion Trail.” Blue Stone Folk School, 1095 Conner Street, is an art school dedicated to preserving and creating Indiana’s great artistic traditions. The school offers classes from ukulele construction and lessons, fabric art, woodcarving, and other folk-related activities, including sponsoring local
concerts. “I began to notice the folk school a couple If…ayou could CHANGE revolutionary …a revolutionary way way to help to help years ago, and the message of preservation of your child’s LIFE in 4 WEEKS, students students achieve achieve optimum optimum potential potential tradition and culture caught my attention imwouldn’t you? mediately,” said Sweazy. “It’s an organization that needs my support. “Noblesville is very fortunate to have a If you If you could could CHANGE CHANGE www.mimlearning.com healthy community of artists, musicians, and your your child’s child’s LIFE LIFE in 4 inWEEKS, 4 WEEKS, writers, and I want to do everything I can to encourage that growth, and make the residents wouldn’t wouldn’t you? you? aware that we exist.” Some of that talent – both musical and artiswww.mimlearning.com www.mimlearning.com www.mimlearning.com tic -- will be “on display” throughout the day at the fundraiser.

A REVOLUTIONARY WAY TO HELP CHILDREN
Give tofu a chance; it's good for you Because it is a soy derivative, tofu is also incredibly good for you. If your doctor or dietitian has suggested you include soy in your diet, try tofu in addition to replacing your dairy with soy. Try this spinach salad topped with a caramelized onion and orange glaze, and tossed with sautéed tofu, fresh diced tomatoes and cucumbers. Enjoy this delish salad garnished with sliced avocados and a twist or two of black pepper!
By Molly Herner Current in Noblesville When some people read “tofu” as an ingredient on a menu, they immediately skip to the next item. Why? Tofu is a wonderfully versatile ingredient to add to your weekly meal plan. Technically speaking, tofu is a ground, filtered soy bean paste. It can be fermented for a sour, aged taste or simply drained, filtered and stored in water as a block. You can use tofu in this solid form in salads, Asian-inspired dishes, on the grill, in pasta sauces and even in your favorite soups. Tofu itself has very little flavor and will take on the flavor of whatever spice, sauce or marinade it is immersed in.
Molly Herner, is the baker/pastry chef at Matteo’s Ristorante Italiano. You may email her at odette05@ aol.com.
Spinach salad with tofu 4. Slice the onion thinly and add it into the hot sauté pan. Allow the onions to cook over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes. 5. In the meantime, chop up the tofu and salt it lightly. Add the tofu squares into the onion sauté and combine. The tofu will break up if stirred too vigorously. 6. Let this mixture heat through and then add a tablespoon of brown sugar and let it melt into the mixture. 7. Squeeze one whole orange into the sauté and let this simmer for about 2 minutes. 8. Immediately pour the caramelized sauce over the fresh salad so that the spinach wilts a bit.
Ingredients: • Tomatoes • One cucumber • Fresh spinach • One orange • Brown sugar • Half of a yellow onion • A block of tofu • Olive oil Directions: 1. Chop tomatoes and cucumber evenly. 2. Toss the chopped vegetables with the fresh spinach in a large bowl. 3. Coat the bottom of a large sautéed pan with olive oil and set over medium heat.

You can have ‘dog-going’ good time on the road COMMENTARY By Tracy Line Once upon a time, there was no such thing as a pet-friendly vacation. Trips were for people and pets were for kennels. Alas, times have changed. Now you and Fido can hit the road together for a vacation that will leave you both drooling. When traveling with your favorite fourlegged friend, you must think like a dog. Look for locations offering outdoor activities your pet can enjoy (think: run, bark, pant, sniff). Hiking, walking the beach, or running through an open field are joy-filled activities that give our pets the exercise they need. To get you moving in the right direction, check out www.BringFido.com. Here, among other things, you’ll find a list of dog-friendly attractions across the US. Topping the list for prime pet-destinations: Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Myrtle Beach State Park, Ft. De Soto Paw Playground & Beach in St. Petersburg, Fla., and Red Rock Canyon in
Las Vegas. Finding the perfect spot to let your sleeping dog lie couldn’t be any easier. Many chain hotels, including Marriott, Doubletree, Embassy Suites, La Quinta, Holiday Inn and even the Conrad are all pet-friendly. Keep in mind that not all locations within a chain allow pets. In addition, many hotels have weight restrictions and some require a deposit. Be sure to understand a specific hotel’s policies before booking your room. For even more fun with Fido, bring him along while you eat. Check out www.petfriendlytravel.com for a great list of pet-friendly restaurants in your vacation destination. Restaurants with outdoor seating may allow you to bring your leashed pet to the table, while others let you keep your pet up in a safe location while you dine. Wherever you go, keep your pet’s needs and safety a priority, and you’re both sure to have a doggone good time.

White is making a comeback in home decorating Commentary By Vicky Early Just as it seemed the world of interior decorating was firmly ensconced in deep and vibrant colors, white is knocking at the front door. The white-on-white pallet, once reserved for summer homes and shabby chic décor, is stunning in bedrooms that demand a timeless, serene feel. White on white in living space offers a sleek glamour last visited in the days of old Hollywood. The secret to the beauty of white in these settings is layers. Layers of shades of white, combined with textures and contrasts, develop the architectural beauty of a room. Although true white falls in the realm of question when defining color theory, I am using it as a color in the decorating sense. In fact, there are countless versions of white created by the addition of a tiny amount of another tone, such as umber, black, red, yellow and blue. Because the goal is to create anything but a sterile environment, most whites will be dressed up with hints of tint. If the idea of your white being tainted by tint is concerning, keep in mind most designers actually consider white a tint, not a color, but for our purposes we’ll consider it a color and discuss the tints you can put into it. A white with a hint of blue can create a cold appearance. An antique white or one with a touch of yellow or brown provides a softer, warmer glow. Tints of gray give you a modern,
edgy feel that balances beautifully with stark white accessories or trim. If you are not comfortable with the concept of faint tints in white, visit a paint store and pick up a variety of white paint samples. Study the nuances and see if the you can begin to see the bare visible undertones of tints. The names provided by the paint manufacturer might give you a hint. Keep in mind that in layering your whites, the undertones will get stronger as the size of the piece increases. Umber undertones will flow with warm golden undertones, but pink-ish whites will scream if placed next to an antique that is yellow and umber. Just imagine what the more saturated versions of your tints would look like together, and work from there. While a total white-on-white room can be a masterpiece, decorating with white can be as simple as adding a few fresh white touches to your already finished room with the following suggestions.
White woodwork, trim, and wainscoting
look sparkly and new. If you want a real change, consider adding white crown molding for added eye appeal.
One of my most versatile pieces of furniture ever was a white upholstered sofa. When soil showed its dirty face, I would simply clean it with a mild solution of detergent and water. It probably looked good for about 6-7 years, and then it was relegated to a bedroom.
Accessories can be anything added to a space that provides interest and texture. My favorite is white is rich pottery, while iridescent white glass provides a luminous quality to a space. White is best used in collections – it is a bit too much of a contrast when placed with strong tones. White dinnerware can function in this way, as well, adding a classy richness to the décor. Could white be the new black? Probably not, but this serene color option is poised for a welcome comeback.
The popularity of white trim waxes and wanes with the years, but it’s still the freshest and cleanest look around. A quick touch-up every few years, and your woodwork will always

•Turquoise — This delicate and feminine blue evokes memories of tropical beaches and cool clear waters. •Violet — The color of heather and spring blooms, violet, a cross between lavender and purple is a romantic, feminine gentle hue with uplifting properties. •Aurora —A deep, yet soft yellow with a slightly greenish hue, Aurora, according to Pantone, represents the first glimpse of sunshine as it rises over the horizon. This is a more wearable yellow than brighter hues. •Tomato Puree — This is the season’s boldest color in a classic, clean pinky red. This uplifting tone works really well with all neutrals or can be teamed with turquoise for a retro look. •Pink Champagne — a wispy combination of ivory and beige provides a subtle hint of warm color and provides a sophisticated blank canvas for almost any shade.
to keep your body, including your skin, hydrated, however the outermost layer of skin does not absorb water since it is made up of dead skin cells. Moisture level of skin is not determined by internal factors, but rather external ones, such as cold or hot air, dry heat and by the number of oil-producing glands you have. So if you want to hydrate your skin, exfoliate it weekly with a sea-salt scrub or other exfoliating agent to remove dead skin, and then apply a rich moisturizer while your skin still is damp.

Missed holiday with the family not so bad
DISPATCHES » Two more public forums scheduled – Members of the Noblesville Board of School Trustees will meet the community to discuss the building projects and the need to replace operating funds lost to state budget cuts and to answer questions. The remaining forums will take place at 6:30 p.m. April 14 and April 28 at Noblesville City Hall. For an detail explanation of the plan visit www.noblesvilleschools.com.
COMMENTARY By Hannah Davis This year, for the first time ever, I missed a family holiday. I upped and left and abandoned them for Bloomington and the wonders of the IU campus. For the last week or so, I’ve felt a little guilty about it. Yes, I missed a holiday, but I’ve been reminding myself that I also missed the conversation about the Creation Museum in Louisville, and how my brother’s on-again, off-again fiancé is just dying to go. I missed the recurring “Look at how horrible my neighbors are!” comments. Instead, I watched movies. I ate pizza. I grilled hamburgers for a group of friends. I cleaned a dorm room (helped, anyway). There were no never-ending Easter egg hunts, no mustardy deviled eggs, no uncomfortable, out-of-season sun dresses. Easter was downright mundane. But there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. There is exactly one religious person in my family (and he hasn’t always been so devout) but we have a habit – like most families, I think – of celebrating religious holidays anyway, sans church services and prayers.
» Record breaking fundraiser for Legacy – The seventh annual Legacy Banquet at Legacy Christian School in Noblesville raised more than $60,000 to help operate the school. The evening, which included dinner, entertainment and a live and silent auction, brought together more than 200 community and business members. Legacy’s middle schoolers combined drama and artwork for a painting that was auctioned for $2,000 and then donated back to the school, to be hung in its new location for Fall 2010. » In the running for school board – Evan Elliott, candidate for the Noblesville School Board, will have a meet-and-greet hosted by Bill and Carol Reid, 104 Wilshire Court, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. April 18. Refreshments will be served.
There’s nothing wrong with that, of course; most holidays, church-related or not, have been so absorbed into the fiber of American culture that they’re an obligation, an assumed part of life. When religion’s tossed aside, families adopt the event as more of a gathering than a more literal “holy day.” (Please, draw some conclusions about the actual spelling of the word “holiday.”) Essentially, I missed not a holiday, but something that might as well be the equivalent of a trip to the movies. A dinner out. An excursion to an art gallery. Something along those lines. I suggest that these holidays be used as days for designated relaxation more often than obligatory celebration. Especially if there’s no religious attachment to the event. Take a trip instead. Forgo buying gifts. There will more gatherings in the future, and the earth won’t implode when you miss one.

What genealogical 'grade' are you? Take the test and find out COMMENTARY By Darla Kinney Scoles “Want to be a better genealogist? Take the inventory below to identify a baby step you can take…” Well now, who could resist such a come-on? Not me. Armed with information from March’s Genealogy Roundtable at the Hamilton East Public Library, I visited the Web site flaunting said offering and was off to find out how to be “better.” First, it seemed, I had to find out where I was. The site, The Ancestry Insider (ancestryinsider. blogspot.com), asked me to begin by rating my genealogical maturity. While social maturity can be very subjective, genealogical maturity is quite quantifiable, it seems. One is either “entry,” “emerging,” “practicing,” “proficient” or “stellar.. Making my way through the survey, I selfgraded my use of sources, citations, information, evidence, conclusions, and conclusion trees. Conclusion trees? I was pretty sure I would end up in the “entry” category. Luckily, there is a ‘definition’ section below the survey. Completing the inventory, I scored as “emerg-
ing” I fell between 12-17 points - or emerging knowledge of how to do genealogy. “Don’t be discouraged if you aren’t a five, or a four, or even a full three,” said the paragraph to follow. “No level is good or bad.

Brace yourself for beetle-mania; they’ll have you screaming
Time to get your yard back into shape
COMMENTARY By Randy Sorrell What are those florescent pink flowering trees buried deep in the woods that are equally comfortable guarding the corners of suburban homes? Or the cheerful yellow wild flowering shrubs dominating woods’ edge? Ever wonder about the dainty pink or white flowering trees keeping those florescent guys company? This fantastic ornamental loves the protected northern and eastern sites of homes and has a marvelous biblical connection. E-mail me if you care to hear the story of the blood-stained petals and crown of thorns. (Answers: redbuds, forsthia, dogwoods). Pears, crabapples and serviceberry, my determined favorite, all explode this time of year and may have challenged your above responses.
I hate to be a downer, especially fresh off our bronzed Spring Break perspectives, but someone has to bring reality into perspective. You probably already have this on your “to do” list, but it’s time to cut last years spent perennials and ornamental grasses to the ground. Yep, all the way to the ground. Fear not. They will return clean and perky, just like you after last week’s respite.

the gutters, pick up the spent perennials and grasses you just cut back, prune shrub roses back to green stem growth, and then finish cleaning the beds of debris and leaves. To reduce maintenance, carefully spread a granular preemergent weed control and all-purpose fertilizer in the beds. Azaleas, roses, hydrangeas and rhododendrons appreciate plant-specific love, but it’s not critical. Phase two is tuff stuff if you have bloated bed lines. Nothing says perfection like a skillfully dug bed edge – think 4-6” deep at a 45-degree angle with smooth edges. Clumpy/jagged is tacky. Now for the icing on the cake, mulch. A total of 3-4” is plenty, including previous years accumulation. Much more invites problems, pests and some other “P” word that escapes me now. Don’t you love the smell of good mulch, especially if someone else has installed it? Spring into life! Spring into family and the out of doors, where healing begins and the magic of life really does come true.

COMMENTARY By Holly Funk Many gardeners know the serenity of gardening in May and June. Rain is sufficient, the air is just right and our gardens are full and lush. I am truly grateful for every minute because by the end of June, I’ll be in the throes of the inevitable Beetle Battle. I only have a couple of plants that Japanese beetles munch on. Being ever concerned for plants and their growth, I’ve learned that the beetles simply prefer some plants more than others, so keeping that in mind, I try not to plant those plants. I notice some plants every year, without fail, completely devoured by the beetles. Garden centers are packed with Purpleleafed Sandcherry this time of year. With light pink blooms and attractive foliage it seems like the perfect landscape plant and it is … until July, when it becomes an open smorgasbord for the Japanese beetles. What remains is a skeleton of a shrub … and beetle loathing ensues. Most types of plum are favored by beetles as well as cherry, apricot and peach, all of the same genus, prunus. We all know the roses suffer from beetle damage. The foliage and the flowers seem

to be devoured equally, making it especially dreadful. The Knockout rose seems to defy that standard. American linden (Tilia americana) is susceptible to heavy infestations as well as Japanese maple (Acer palmatum), pin oak (Quercus palustris) and many species of apple (Malus sp.). When considering plants for your landscape, you may want to avoid these if you are a beetle basher. The good news? There are as many plants resistant to beetle feeding as there are plants susceptible to it. For example, burning bushes (Euonymous alatus) rarely succumb to beetle damage. Dogwood (Cornus sp.), redbud (Cercis canadensis) and red maple (Acer rubrum) are tough cookies too. Several evergreens such as holly (Ilex sp.), boxwood (Buxus sp.), yew (Taxus sp.) and juniper (Juniperus sp.) are usually safe from the gluttons. I could write a whole piece on battle tactics should you be ambushed. More on that later, but for now, enjoy your days free of the iridescent intruders…as they are definitely numbered.

DISPATCHES » HSHC adoption special – All feline and canine residents who have been waiting for homes 6 months or longer will have reduced adoption fees of just $50. And don't forget, those animals who were sponsored during the holidays STILL come with their amazing gift packages. You may just hit the double boogie bingo when you adopt a critter in April. » When to call, when to go – Breathing difficulties in your cat are always scary, but when are they just a phone call, and when do you go straight to the vet’s office? Reasons to bypass the phone and head straight to the office include a near drowning or bluish or white gums. But if your cat is merely having some difficulty breathing with either shallower or heavier breaths than usual, or if your cat is continuously coughing or sneezing, call the vet to find out what to do next. - www.peteducation.com
Animals depend on humans to speak up for protection COMMENTARY By Rebecca Stevens Since we recently lost a puppy named Bear as a result of serious abuse a timely topic to discuss is April’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. Unfortunately, the Humane Society for Hamilton County receives on a regular basis animals who have been victims of neglect or abuse. These situations aren’t always obvious. Here are some signs to look for: Physical signs • Collar so tight that it has caused a neck wound or has become embedded in the pet’s neck • Open wounds, signs of multiple healed wounds or an ongoing injury or illness that isn’t being treated • Untreated skin conditions that have caused loss of hair, scaly skin, bumps or rashes • Extreme thinness, or emaciation (bones may be visible under the flesh) • Infested with fleas, ticks or other parasites • Signs of inadequate grooming, such as extreme matting of fur and overgrown nails • Weakness, limping or the inability to stand or walk normally
• Heavy discharge from eyes or nose • An owner or individual(s) physically abusing an animal Environmental Signs • Pets tied up alone outside for long periods of time without adequate food or water • Pets kept outside in inclement weather without access to adequate shelter • Pets kept in an area littered with feces, garbage, broken glass or other harmful objects • Animals housed in kennels or cages (often crowded in with other animals) that are too small to allow them to stand, turn around and make normal movements Humans must speak for these innocent animals who are counting on us to keep them safe. If you suspect an animal is being abused or you witness an abusive act, please report it to the police immediately. You can also report abuse anonymously to the Humane Society by emailing concerns to hshc@ hamiltonhumane.com or calling 773-4974. 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 Violet is a 2-year-old female black American pit bull terrier mix. Violet is a sweet little girl who was brought to the shelter by a kind person who noticed her and her three puppies roaming alone and at risk of being hit by a car. She had been caring for her babies to the detriment of her own health; she was extremely emaciated. The shelter was able to find a foster home in which she could continue nursing the puppies and be out of the chaos of the kennel. Happily, all of Violet's puppies found their forever homes, but not Violet. Checkers is a 7-year-old male black and white DLH. Checkers arrived at the shelter a few days before Christmas cold, scared and very underweight. He went into a foster home for awhile and is now healthy and feeling better. Checkers is a bit independent, but he really does enjoy human interaction and would love to finally have a home to call his own. Checkers is neutered, litter box trained. For more information on these and other animals at the Humane Society, call 317-773-4974 or go to www.hamiltonhumane.com.

A meal lasts a lifetime – picture or no picture COMMENTARY By Mike Redmond Just back from vacation. As they used to say in my hometownpaper, The Hooterville World Guardian, a good time was had by all and refreshments were served. About those refreshments … I noticed something on this trip that puzzled me. Every time I sat down to eat, someone at a table nearby would produce a camera and start flashing away, paparazzi style. No, not at me. At their food. I’m not kidding. Every single meal – and I ate a lot of ‘em – someone would be aiming a camera – cell phone, point-and-shoot, single-lens reflex – at their plate. Didn’t matter what it was, either. From a hamburger and fries to a lobster dinner, they all got the “Say CHEESE” treatment. Including the cheese. Now, I have been a photographer, and I have done food photography for newspapers, but I’ve never photographed my own food. In fact, the whole idea seems just a little weird to me. And for a guy who knows weird as well as I do, that is saying something. Maybe it’s because I am half-McKenzie, which means my veins are coursing with the blood of a people who remember every meal they have ever eaten. I am not kidding. Come to one of our family reunions sometime. The top three conversational topics are What I Am Eating, What I Have Eaten, and What I Hope To Eat Someday. When do we have these conversations? While we’re eating, of course. Of course, we have our favorites – the classics, if you will: Grandma McKenzie’s fried and braised squirrel; fresh hams with their crispy crackling skin and rich, tender meat (generally preferred to roast beef, in part because hogs paid a lot of McKenzie mortgages); glorious new asparagus, unburdened by sauces; morel
mushrooms, one of the signs that truly we have a Benevolent Creator who wants us to be happy; and desserts of all descriptions. All are remembered fondly, recreated faithfully or anticipated hungrily. Usually when we’re standing in the buffet line. I also have keen memories of restaurant meals, some of them almost 50 years old, from simple hamburgers at a drive-in in Huntington to lobster ravioli at an Indianapolis restaurant that closed before I was able to go back and make sure I hadn’t imagined the entire thing, to boudin sausage eaten at a small chrome-legged table in a shack added onto a gas station near Lafayette, La.They are as alive in my memory as if I had eaten them yesterday. Which brings up an interesting point. Why is it that I can remember all these meals from long ago, but am not entirely certain about what I might have had for dinner last night? This points out the value of taking photos of your food, at least for those of us who have a few thousand miles on the odometer. Don’t remember what you ate? Look on your camera. I’ve talked to some people about their food photos, though, and I don’t think that’s exactly why they do it. I think they’re using the photos as more of a visual diary, which is actually kind of cool. And useful. No more arguments over whether the pizza was with pepperoni or sausage. Now you’ll have conclusive proof. Which gets me back to what I ate last night. I just remembered. Canned tuna. No photo necessary. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker.
