Healing place nears completion

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Just seven and a half months after breaking ground, organizers for the Angel of Hope in Noblesville’s Forest Park will dedicate the memorial at construction 3 p.m. May 4. “This is the most exciting thing I’ve ever done in my life and the most fulfilling,” said Kirk Forbes, memorial organizer. Forbes said the memorial garden is “to help all parents in our community who have lost children.” The Hamilton County memorial will be the 123rd Angel of Hope in the nation. “I think it is an opportunity for closure for a lot of people in the community,” Forbes said. “She truly does represent hope for the whole community. Hope to get you through the grief of losing a child. Sometimes all you have is hope to hang your hat on.” The memorial centers on the Angel of Hope statue, which stands about 7 feet tall. It will be an octagon shape measuring 48 feet across with bricks engraved with children’s names and messages from families and friends radiating out from the angel. Three large flower pots will celebrate the children’s lives. Surrounding the brick memorial will be bushes and trees. The memorial will be illuminated by a lighting system. A 60-foot path will lead from the main-park walking path to the memorial. Forbes said the project was originally priced at $125,000 but the final cost dropped to almost half, courtesy of donations or discounts from a variety of vendors including Gaylor Electric, Daystar Boring and Beaver Materials. From 5 to 8 p.m. May 1, Culver’s in Noblesville will provide a portion of its proceeds to the memorial. “The community stepped forward and surprised us in a major way,” Forbes said. Other fundraising efforts included the purchase of several memorial pieces and memorial bricks, which are still being sold for $100. One brick purchased belongs to Jim and Brandi Bates who lost their son, Zander, to an umbilical cord complication during his birth on Aug. 20, 2010. “I go to the one (Angel of Hope) in Avon to break down sometimes. It’s a neat thing the city has allowed to come to the area. It will be very beneficial for the people of Noblesville and Indianapolis,” Brandi said. Brandi said infant and child death has been a taboo topic in the past and thinks the memorial will provide support for parents and family members. “It’s a wonderful place to provide solace and remembrance for parents who lost children,” Brandi said. “It’s a

Leader in Internet marketing By Kristen Yates • news@currentnoblesville.com

“It’s really a hands-on experience for both the clients and my employees,” Burzynski said, adding each project is assigned a project manager, designer and developer during the kick-off meeting. “The meeting allows the clients to meet who they are going to be working with.” Projects can last anywhere from 30 days to 12 months – the average being three to four months. The site is given a soft launch in the early stages of development through a private web address. Clients are able to access this address and watch the construction of their site from wire frames to finished product.

With the birth of the Internet, new and exciting opportunities opened themselves up to business owners everywhere, business not to mention job prospects. One small business owner, Steve Burzynski, teamed up with long-time business partner, Gerald Stanley, and took a leap of faith.

On April 22, Chuy’s Tex Mex Restaurant opened its second Indiana location at Hamilton Town Center, 14150 Town Center Blvd., with a ribbon cutting by Mayor John Ditslear. The Texas-based franchise restaurant is owned and run by local businessman Russell Burns. “The unbelievable flavors are unique to this restaurant and I can’t wait to bring them to all my friends and neighbors,” he said. Tex-Mex is an uncommon style of Mexican food with a Texas twist that is typically only found around the TexasMexico border. It combines the Mexican flavors with the southern style of cooking with an emphasis on always serving fresh food. Burns said the atmosphere of the restaurant matches the colorful food that is served. There are three separate dining rooms, each with its own wild theme. Chuy’s is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. (Submitted photo)

“Norell is a main part because he is such a big figure in Noblesville,” she said. “I have always had a love for fashion, and when this became known to Aili, she gave me the opportunity to organize my own exhibit centered around local fashion. It has been an awesome learning experience I never imagined I would get, especially during high school.” McGill said the internship provided Bowles with the practical side of arts and real-world experience. “She organized it from the start. We’ve given her leads and conceptually where we want it to go. She is incredibly responsible and talented,” she said. “The subject is fashion but the skills are exhibit design. She has a lot of natural instinct for all of it. She’s a really strong communicator.”

Norman Norell’s work continues to influence aspiring designers By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com One of the first American designers whose name appeared on a label, Noblesville’s Norman Norell, was known for making clean, precisely tailored clothes with superb workmanship. Norell, who was born Norman David Levinson on April 20, 1900 in Noblesville, died Oct. 25, 1972 in New York City. His career spanned 50 years and Norell its impact on fashion and influence in the fashion world is still seen today, and an upcoming exhibit at Nickel Plate Arts highlights his career.

Impacting future designers

Norell’s rise in fashion Norell’s grandparents, N.D. and “Minnie” Levinson, emigrated to Noblesville in the 1850s from Germany. N.D. opened a clothing store in Downtown Noblesville where the Hamilton County Visitors Center is at today. “They were one of the first Jewish settlers in the area,” Hamilton County Historian David Heighway said. “N.D. Levinson was a tailor, his son Harry also got into clothing and it was just natural for Norman to get into the business, but he wanted a slightly higher level and went to New York for fashion school (Pratt Institute).” In 1922, Norell joined the New York studio of Paramount Pictures where he designed clothes for Gloria Swanson and other stars of silent movies. In 1928, he was hired by Hattie Carnegie and remained with her until 1941. “He worked with a couple other famous designers and then setup his own studio,” Heighway said. “Historically speaking, after World War II the European fashion schools were gone … He leapt right to the top. He was on the cover of Life magazine three times. He was considered the premiere post-war fashion designer. He made America count in fashion.”

Nickel Plate Arts exhibit From 6 to 9 p.m. May 2, Nickel Plate Arts will host the grand opening of its Mode Locale exhibit featuring Norell and other local fashion designers. The exhibit will have fashions from the early 1900s to modern times. Learn about costumes from Conner Prairie, Fishers Renaissance Faire and more. The free exhibit, which runs May 2 through 24, is the first fashion show at NPA. “It’s something we had been discussing for awhile,” NPA Executive Director Aili McGill said. “It’s a really good reminder that Noblesville has a rich arts heritage. We have a lot to be proud of. Norman Norell’s story is really cool. He had such a huge influence on the fashion world. We want people to see and learn from his story.” With her interest in fashion, the exhibit is Noblesville High School senior Claire Bowles internship culmination.

Bowles, 18, is working at NPA this school year as part of the career exploration internship program, but her interest in fashion began at a young age. “Like every little girl, I liked clothes and fashion at an early age. We had a huge thing to dress up clothes and my sister and I fought over who wore what,” she said. “At the start of high school I really got into it. To make something I can share with the world is crazy and I love it. It expresses who I am – clothes and fashion can do that.” In the fall, Bowles plans to study fashion merchandising at Ashland University in Ohio. She plans to intern in New York City her junior year of college. “I went there last summer and immediately fell in love with it. I ultimately want to become a buyer for any large company,” she said. “I like making my own clothing but the design side is so hard to break into. It’s such a dream of mine to pick out pieces that fit back into stores.” After studying Norell, Bowles said she felt inspired about the fashion industry. “When I first saw his work I said, ‘This is exactly what I like,’” she said. “Norell made me think, ‘I can do this. If he can do it, I can too’ … Even when I told my friends, they didn’t know

we had someone that cool that grew up in Noblesville.” What Bowles like most about Norell’s work is its timeless appeal. “It translates to today’s work. It can be rolled over in all the different periods,” she said. “Norell’s designs setup what American fashion came to be. The ideas are from Paris but American ready-to-wear. He transformed American fashion through today.”

Interesting facts

• Norman Norell spent a short period at military school during World War I. • His uncle, Salmon Oliver Levinson, was the only Noblesville resident nominated for a Noble Peace Prize. He assisted in drafting the KelloggBriand Pact in 1928, which “outlawed” war in a legal sense. • Norell changed his name in 1922. “It’s a combination of Norman Levinson. He added an extra ‘L’ to make it look better,” NHS senior Claire Bowles said. • While the Levinson family has a prominent history in Noblesville, only Norell and his parents are buried in Crownland Cemetery. “Since we have no Jewsh burial ground, family members were shipped up to Chicago and buried there. They are the only ones buried here out of the family,” County Historian David Heighway said. • In 1943 Norell received the first of five Coty American Fashion Critics’ Awards. In 1956, the same year Parsons presented him its Medal for Distinguished Achievement, he was inducted into the Coty Hall of Fame. • Norell died the night before the opening of a retrospective of his work at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

READERS’ VIEWS Fields are more than open grass

Latest IRS gaffe is maddening mess We find last week’s news of the IRS complaints about tight budgets - even though the agency paid massive bonuses to misbehaved employees - to be curious and maddening as hell. This, of course, comes on the heels of us taking our annual shellacking on April 15. What it says to us is that we (and you) should have a thank-you note coming for the extra cash bestowed on these (cough) “high-performing” government workers. The awards totaling $2.8 million, to speak nothing of the approximately 27,000 hours in paid-time-off awards, really have us grinding our molars. This tells us, among other things, that an agency that once targeted conservative groups, and some of whose employees did not pay taxes but grabbed handfuls of reward cash without any resulting castigation (except for a boss losing a job), is appearing to be out of control. A report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration uncovered this whole new mess. The watchdog group determined that more than 2,800 employees either were previously disciplined for conduct issues or for failure to comply with federal tax requirements. Oh, and that money that was doled out? You guessed it; it’s yours. As you may recall, we have revulsion for much of the Republican Party and its leadership, but we believe that were a GOP member in the White House at present, this would be front-page, skewering news on a daily basis. But since the liberal, mainstream media is so enamored of the left, the story simply dies on the vine. Either there is universal dismay for this behavior with regard to the IRS (This has to bug you, right?), or America will have thrown in the towel. ••• The Noblesville Schools Board of Trustees has a tall order in replacing outgoing Supt.

Editor, It is probably stupid to get attached to a piece of land that has nothing more than the soccer goals, a barn in the corner, and half the grass that a soccer field needs. But after playing soccer at Habig for eight years, I’ll honestly miss it. I’ve met so many great people I’ll never forget, it’s crazy. And I made some of my best friends on those sidelines. It may not look gorgeous, but look a little deeper and you will see the memories I do. In the corner by the baseball fields there is a small stream surrounded by little trees that split into 3 tiny waterfalls. On those fields it didn’t matter what clothes we wore or who our friends were. We could just be ourselves and have fun. So, when soccer moves to Shamrock Springs Field this spring, I’ll honestly miss Habig more than I should, because those fields are a part of of who I am. And that will never change. Haley Phemister, 46074

Taking in the view

Commentary by Terry Anker

In recent years, I’ve moved my preference from the often more convenient aisle seat to one by the window. It had been my firm belief that being able to stand up quickly upon landing, and to expand my too-large-for-airplane-seat frame into the shared space of the passageway, made up for being assaulted by fellow passengers carrying handbags that could pass for suitcases hitting me in the head as they made their way past. In addition, I thought that having quick access to the bathroom was worth excusing the other travelers who needed to escape the row at some point. So now, I visit the men’s room before departing and squeeze myself in next to the curving fuselage of the craft. However, with these adjustments, one gains the world. From the window passing below are the sapphire waters of the Florida coast, the vast breadbasket of the plains, and the majesty of the snow-capped Rockies. Each had been unnoticed by me – in my own eagerness to maintain control over my

surroundings, I found that I was missing much of the beauty of the world around me. But the miles high perspective also brings consideration as it brings awe. Views of extensive urban sprawl and ever increasing density raise issues of land use. Views of the retreating water levels of Lake Mead, an important reservoir of fresh water for Las Vegas and much of the southwest, suggest questions of conservation and the immediate dependency that we humans exhibit for our own convenience. And, views of much of the Midwest makes one pause at the agricultural abundance produced by so few for so many. Deception is easy from 30,000 feet. Little is exactly as it appears. Yet from above the clouds, one is reminded that deception is also perpetrated at street level. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.

- Helen Keller

Unsubstanstiated claims Editor, I am writing to point out some of the claims made at the political forums recently. I have heard of a number of untruths. For instance one of the Coroner candidates claims he has worked for the past three coroners, but, when I think back I have worked closely with the coroner’s office for the past eight to 10 years and I do not ever recall this individual working for them. I am also very familiar with the training required and the continuing education required to maintain their certification. This individual has been out of the loop for over a decade. Mr. Conn claims to have done his training in Illinois, which is not recognized by Indiana, as a firefighter I cannot go to Illinois and get continuing education without approval or acceptance from the State of Indiana. When I checked with the Indiana State Coroners Board they state that he has never kept up his certification per the Indiana statutory requirements. Is this what we want in an elected official? Anyone can call them the number is (765) 479-1934. Steven Peachey, Cicero Fire Chief, 46034

BELIEVE IT! Our nation has all sorts of arcane, nonsensical laws on the books. Each week, we’ll share one with you. New Yorkers cannot dissolve a marriage for irreconcilable differences, unless they both agree to it.

Register your little hoopster for a fun camp this summer!

For once I’m going to talk about a positive family experience. So, to all you finger pointers who think my soul is dead inside, humor here’s proof that I can be an awesome mother. I’d been schlepping back and forth between our house and two different middle schools one morning accommodating both band and orchestra performances by my twins. Somewhere along the way, all communication broke down and I actually “lost” one of my seventh graders for 20 minutes. [She’d ridden a bus back to her school with a dead cell phone while I waited for her in the other school’s parking lot.] Suffice it to say, after hauling tail across town to get her home and then turning immediately around to retrieve her brother, I was a tad bit annoyed. Added to my frustration was that I had only 10 minutes to get him to Tae Kwon Do. A fairly standard Saturday morning, true, but nevertheless aggravating. So when my son hopped into the car and said, “Let’s skip TKD, and do something just the two of us,” my immediate reaction was, “No! We have to stick to the schedule!” Then he reminded me that for Christmas I’d given him a certificate for a “Day Out with Mom”, and I realized he had me. I called my husband to tell him I was taking the rest of the afternoon off, and then headed for the nearest bowling alley. “Hurricane” Andrew beat me

squarely in two rounds of pins, even though the first win was only because a glitch in the stupid computer scored him a strike on his 10th frame. (He found that hilarious, of course.) Then we enjoyed a wonderfully fatty meal at Steak-n-Shake while we colored the children’s menu and built a paper race car. Three solid hours of one-on-one time with my youngest son, a soon-to-be teenager. When will that ever happen again? I hope soon, actually. It’s amazing how different children are when they aren’t competing with siblings. Andrew was funny, sweet, engaging . . . attributes I don’t get to see very often amidst a busy household with an obnoxious 15-year-old and fourth-grade drama queen. He kept asking, “What do you want to do, Mom?” even though it was totally his day to plan. As we headed home, I made a mental note to keep “Day Out with Parent” as an annual stocking stuffer. The aforementioned obnoxious 15-year-old has yet to cash his certificate, and I’ve heard mention of “skeet shooting.” I say, bring it on. This awesome mom can’t wait. Peace out.

Classical singers, musicians combine forces By Jay Harvey • editorial@youarecurrent.com Being a little late in a good cause may be a trivial problem when the payoff is expected to be huge. That’s what Eric Stark, artistic director of the Indianapolis Symphonic concert Choir, is anticipating when he conducts more than 300 musicians at the Palladium on May 3. In 2013, international observances of the Benjamin Britten birth centennial were widespread. The British musician had made his mark in the 1930s, and by the time he died in 1976, was considered his country’s greatest composer of the 20th century’s middle decades. His “Ceremony of Carols” is frequently heard at Christmastime, and his opera “Peter Grimes” is one of the few modern operas to have a solid place in the repertoire. Stark planned to climax last season’s schedule with a concert devoted to “War Requiem,” Britten’s setting of the Latin Mass for the Dead and poetry by Wilfred Owen, who died in service to king and country mere weeks before the Armistice ended the First World War. The work was commissioned for the 1962 consecration of Coventry Cathedral, which had been damaged in World War II. But Stark wanted to lead up to the event with a tour of sites significant in Britten’s life beforehand, building anticipation and support among the choir’s donors and friends. Since those concerned with the Britten legacy in the United Kingdom were renovating one of those sites in 2012, the Symphonic Choir’s tour was delayed a year, until last June. In 2006, Stark had mounted a performance of “War Requiem,” which demands three adept vocal soloists, a large orchestra, and choirs including a boys’ (or children’s) choir, at St. Luke’s Methodist Church. Though he remains grateful for the church’s accommodating the massive concert, landing the Palladium for the 2014 centennial performance is especially exciting because “it’s the best option in the area,” he said. Six rows of 50 seats each will be occupied by choristers, comprising 150 Symphonic Choir members, the 40-voice Butler Chorale and 15-20 members of the Indianapolis Men’s “War Requiem” by Benjamin Britten • A performance featuring the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, Indianapolis Children’s Choir, members of the Butler Chorale and Indianapolis Men’s Chorus, three soloists, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, all conducted by Eric Stark • 8 p.m. May 3 • The Palladium in Carmel • Tickets start at $30 • For more information call 843-3800 or visit www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

THIS WEEK Spring pops concert – Take a musical trip to the movies during the annual St. Mark’s Orchestra Spring Pops Concert at CARMEL noon May 4.

Tickets, which are $5, are available at 839 Conner St. or at the event. For more information, visit www. noblesvillemainstreet.org.

Conductor Eric Stark will lead a performance of Benjamin Britten’s “War Reqiuem” on May 3.

Chorus. About 100 members of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir will be placed in the gallery at the rear of the hall. That leaves the stage for a 100-piece orchestra (the Indianapolis Symphony plus extras) and three soloists: soprano Sinead Mulhern, tenor Thomas Cooley, and baritone Christopheren Nomura. Stark, who was just named a Sagamore of the Wabash, is now in the midst of a week of rehearsals, culminating in two rehearsals for the massed forces on Thursday and Friday in the Palladium. “There’s a real through-line to this piece, with the full chorus singing the Latin text only, yet it’s still amazing how the Owen text seems to have been written just for this piece,” Stark said.

Britten was explicitly a pacifist, and this work goes beyond mourning the dead and their sacrifice in order to protest against war in general. “The poetry reflects the ghastly horror of trench warfare,” Stark said. “Any romanticized notion is rendered insincere and farcical. Whatever one’s political beliefs, we can rally around the thought that we should treat each other with compassion.” Related event – Half-hour “Words on Music” at 7:10 p.m. May 3 in the hall featuring ISC scholar-in-residence Dennis Shrock, a member of the choral faculty of Texas Christian University and former conductor of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale. It’s free to ticket-holders.

Grace & Glorie – The Westfield Playhouse, 1836 Ind. 32 West, will open its newest production, Grace & Glorie, at 7:30 p.m. WESTFIELD May 1 and 2. The show, which runs through May 18, stars Marty Essig and Kristen Wilson and is directed by Doug Davis. The play is about a feisty 90-yearold cancer patient who has returned to her beloved homestead cottage to die alone and her volunteer hospice worker. Tickets are $12 and $10 for seniors. For reservations, call 896-2707. March-A-Thon – Marching Eagle band members and the 2014 Zionsville Community High School incoming freshman marchers will perform from 2 to 4 p.m. May 3. The March-AzionsVILLE Thon is a fundraising event for the band, as well as a thank you concert for the residents in Zionsville who have continuously supported the music program. The band will be marching down Main Street and for three miles throughout the village. For more information, visit www.zboponline.org.

By Terri Spilman • editorial@youarecurrent.com The Carmel Community Players continue their “Season of Restoration” with the opening of Neil Simon’s award-winning theatre play “Lost in Yonkers” on May 1 through May 11. “The play is different than Simon’s other snappy one-liner plays in that it is more from the heart with deeper characters which makes it among his more poignant works,” said Director Jim LaMonte. “In short, the play is an actor’s dream, and Simon maintains a balance between poignancy and humor in this moving production.” Winner of the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, the “Lost in Yonkers” is set in the city of Yonkers, N.Y., during 1942 and focuses on the lives of two teenage brothers - Jay and Arty - who are dropped off at the house of their stern grandmother and mentally-challenged Aunt Bella by their father, Eddie, who took a job as a traveling salesman after the death of their mother. “The action is filtered through the eyes of 15-year-old Jay (Jude Binkley of Carmel) and his younger brother Arty (Christian Baltz of Carmel). I am so lucky to have these talented boys in the show. Their ability to deliver far exceeds their ages,” LaMonte said. “I think audiences are going to be charmed with them.” Other leading cast members are Nan Macy (Columbus, Ind.) as Grandma, and Jean Childers

Arnold (Carmel) as Bella, with supporting roles by Jeremy Tuterow (Indianapolis) as Eddie, Joe Aiello (Carmel) portrays gangster Uncle Louie, and Robin Contrell (Indianapolis) plays Aunt Gert. “Most of Simon’s work is centered on the comedy. Which is great. You go see it, you laugh and go home. With ‘Yonkers,’ there is a lot more to take with you when the curtain falls,” LaMonte said. “Lost in Yonkers” • 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays • May 1 through May 11 • Tickets are $15; seniors (62+) and students $12 • For more information visit www.carmelplayers.org.

Jewish Film Festival makes debut By Adam Aasen • adam@youarecurrent.com

The premiere of the Indianapolis Jewish Film Festival will feature nine thought-provoking movies as a part of a weeklong event, movies including a documentary shown at University High School in Carmel. The inaugural festival, which takes place from May 3 to 10, will showcase a variety of film styles, from historical documentaries to dramas to light-hearted comedies. Panel discussions will precede some of the films, including some controversial movies such as “Trembling Before G-D,” a film about Hasidic Jews confronting their homosexuality. Robert Epstein, an Indianapolis attorney and local Jewish community leader, organized the festival as a way to explore many aspects of Jewish life and history. He said a group of about 20 people, not all of A week of movies – All films cost $10 except the May 4 showing and gala which costs $30; the May 9 showing is which are Jewish, narrowed down free. about 200 films to the nine they are • “David,” 7 p.m. May 3 at the Central Library in Indianapolis showing.

PRESENTS

‘Six Days’ that changed the world Commentary by Christopher Lloyd Made 40 years after the war it documents, “Six Days in June” is a powerful lesson in history and human fallibility. Though it lasted less than a review week, the Six-Day War has had a more profound impact on global politics than just about any other conflict in the latter half of the 20th century. Fearing an imminent attack on all sides from mounting Arab forces, Israel launched a preemptive offensive that crushed their enemies’ armies and expansively redrew the boundaries of the still-young Jewish state. The result was a Jerusalem and Gaza Strip controlled by Israelis but rife with stateless Palestinians, and a Middle East defined by Arab/Muslim antipathy toward Israel. Essentially, everything that has happened since - from terrorist intifadas to broken peace talks - has arisen out of that brief and deceptively decisive military action. Director Ilan Ziv painstakingly paints a portrait of the geopolitical situation before, during and after the war. Relying not just on archival footage, he also conducts modern interviews with key figures, both Jews and Arabs, from the highest levels of the government to common foot soldiers, journalists and bystanders. We learn what the fighting was like on the ground - the quick annihilation of the Arab air forces, rendering their forces on the ground ef-

fectively impotent as Israeli tanks moved in. Ziv is careful to present the reasoning, emotions and miscalculations of those on both sides of the war. The film reaches two key conclusions. First, that Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, the regional strongman who whipped up pan-Arab opposition to Israeli, was a self-aggrandizing bluffer who didn’t really want to go to war - at least not until his side was militarily dominant. Second, that Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol was bullied by his generals into a first blow that won the day but set up decades of resentment and struggle. “Six Days in June” looks back on that fateful war with clear vision and sobering insight.

Riverview Health has received its third Chest Pain Center Accreditation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient achievement Care, an international not-for-profit organization that focuses on transforming cardiovascular care. “We first received the Chest Pain Center Accreditation in 2007 and, today, we’re proud to be the only full-service hospital in Hamilton County with open heart surgery capabilities that has this distinction,” stated Tammi Nash, director of Clinical Operations at Riverview Health. “More importantly, this accreditation is a reflection of our dedication to the people we serve and the high standards we have in place when it comes to treating patients with heart attack symptoms. The sooner a heart attack is treated, the less damage to the heart and the better the outcome

for the patient.” To become an Accredited Chest Pain Center, Riverview Health engaged in rigorous evaluation by SCPC for its ability to assess, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack. To the community served by Riverview Health this means that processes are in place that meet strict criteria aimed at: reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment; treating patients quicker during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved; and monitoring patients when it is not certain they are having a heart attack to ensure they are not sent home too early or needlessly admitted to the hospital. Riverview Health offers a spectrum of care for heart patients and includes such focal points as dispatch, an emergency medical system, emergency department, cutting-edge cath lab, quality assurance plan and a community outreach program.

Home prices begin to level off Commentary by Jim Litten

With average home prices reaching $161,191 in March 2014, home sales prices in central Indiana are up 6.1 percent compared Real estate to March 2013. Eight of the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks experienced slightly higher home sales prices in the first three months of 2014 compared to the same time period last year. Hamilton County is among the areas seeing strong year-to-date average sales prices, up 10.9 percent to $255,747. • In Noblesville, prices experienced a small decline. For the first three months of 2014, the average price of a home was $194,816, a 0.5 percent decrease compared to the same time period last year. • Of the home sales in Noblesville last month, one was priced $500,000 to $1 million; eight were priced $300,000 to $499,999; 28 were priced $200,000 to $299,999; 61 were priced $100,000 to $199,999; and eight were pried $99,999 or less.

• Home sales remain pent up from the slow winter months. In Noblesville, 106 homes sold in March, a decrease of 18 homes compared to March 2013. Similarly, sales in Hamilton County fell 31.1 percent to 462 homes. • The number of homes for sale in Noblesville fell. In March 2014, 331 homes were on the market, which is a decrease of 45 homes from March 2013. • For the first three months of this year, homes in Noblesville remained on the market an average of 89 days, three fewer days compared to the same time period last year. Now that harsh winter conditions have finally lifted, we expect warmer weather will attract more potential buyers to open houses. As we move into the second quarter, we believe home sales will increase and prices will remain strong. Jim Litten is the president of F.C. Tucker Company.

Building permits up 21 percent in past month editorial@youarecurrent.com  March building permit reports indicate that in central Indiana, single-family building permits increased 3 percent construction compared to March 2013 year-to-date and have increased 21 percent during the past month. Reports indicate there have been 1,138 new home permits issued so far this year compared to 1,104 in 2013. “We are excited to be seeing the month-to-

month and the year-to-year increases in permit numbers once again,” said Steve Lains, CEO of the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis.  “It is clear that housing creates jobs and is extremely influential in creating the strong economic viability we are beginning to see again here in central Indiana, and we expect to see those numbers continue to rise,” Lains said.      In central Indiana, the permits issued through March 2014 have created a total economic impact of $203,797,368 in local income, $46,265,376 in local taxes and 3,450 local jobs.

Inside the Mezquita of Cordoba (Photo by Don Knebel)

Spain’s only surviving mosque Commentary by Don Knebel

Young Christian girls in Spain dream of marrying in the Mezquita, the Great Mosque of Cordoba. At the same time, Muslims travel are barred from praying in the building that illustrates the best of early Islamic architecture and manifests Spain’s turbulent religious history. During the early first millennium A.D., the Mezquita’s current location was the site of a temple to Janus, the Roman god of beginnings. In the 6th century, Cordoba was captured by the Visigoths, Germanic Christians deemed heretics by the established church became they refused to accept the divinity of Jesus. After their leader converted to orthodox Christianity in 589, the Visigoths razed the temple and built a church, whose mosaic floor can be seen through a cutout in the floor of the Mezquita. Muslims from North Africa conquered Cordoba in 711 and used part of the Visigoth church as their mosque. Later in the 8th century, Abd alRahman I, an exile from Syria, established an Islamic dynasty centered in Cordoba and reportedly purchased the site of the Visigoth church for a mosque modeled on the Great Mosque of Damascus. The mosque was expanded by al-

Rahman I’s successors until it covered almost six acres. A flat wooden roof, capable of shading 20,000 worshippers, was supported by 856 Roman columns from earlier buildings, their heights extended by novel double brick and stone arches suggesting palm trees. In 1236 Christians reconquered Cordoba, at the time one of the most important cities in the world. Instead of demolishing the Great Mosque, as they had other Spanish mosques, church leaders removed a large section of the roof and the columns supporting it and erected an ornate cathedral in the middle of the mosque. The cathedral, incorporating gothic, baroque and renaissance themes, remains surrounded by the original columns. When Holy Roman Emperor Charles V observed the mutilation of the mosque by the embedded church, he reportedly expressed regret at having authorized the construction. That decision nonetheless preserved most of the Mezquita, now Spain’s second most visited site. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Blending the old with the new in kitchen remodel Commentary by Larry Greene

EXISTING KITCHEN: This historic home located in downtown Noblesville was built in 1880. After living in the house 19 blueprint for years, the homeowners improvement realized it was time to update. “When the oven broke, I wanted to replace it with a new double oven but the space didn’t work. That’s when we decided to go ahead and remodel the entire kitchen as opposed to just replacing the oven.” MORE ISLAND SEATING: The original island did not accommodate enough seating for the entire family. The base of the island was reduced, giving the countertop the needed overhang for additional bar stools. Also, the cooktop was relocated to the perimeter making it safe for the entire family to dine at the island. UPDATING EXISTING CABINETS: “The original cabinets were dark with poor storage. However, they were still in great shape so we decided to keep them.” Existing cabinets were modified by a carpenter to make way for new stainless steel appliances. The base and perimeter cabinets were professionally painted with a beige color, making the kitchen appear larger. The island and pantry cabinets were painted in a contrasting gray. COUNTERTOP AREA: Solid surface countertops in a “Mocha Granit” color were chosen for the perimeter, including a beautiful stone backsplash tile called “California Gold”. “The backsplash is our

RESULT: The homeowner appreciated the careful blend of old and new elements in the remodel of this historic kitchen. “Not only do we love it, our friends and family love it, too. We are all so proud of it.”

favorite part of the remodel. We especially love the enhanced look of the backsplash tile. After the backsplash was installed, we couldn’t stop staring at it. It’s beautiful.” PLUMBING FIXTURES & HARDWARE: The existing plumbing fixtures were replaced with a double bowl under-mount stainless steel sink, a Delta pull down faucet and a matching filtered water faucet. The brushed nickel cabinet knobs were salvaged
