Hare named GM Dealer of the Year By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Hare Chevrolet has been one of the top car dealerships in the state for years, and now the Noblesville business is receiving national attention as it was recently honored by General Motors as one of GM’s Dealers of the Year. “We are proud that our hard work and dedication to the customer has allowed us to be recognized as one of General Motors’ Dealers of the Year,” said Monica Peck, co-owner of Hare Chevrolet. “Our No. 1 priority is providing the best customer experience, and we look forward to building on this in 2012.” This is Hare Chevrolet’s first time being recognized with this honor by GM. The designation is given to only 2 percent of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers in the north central region. “A big thanks to the community, customers and employees. All that added together makes for a great run so far,” said Courtney Cole, co-owner of Hare Chevrolet. Hare Chevrolet started in 1847 with 19-year-old Wesley Hare. Hare opened a wagon shop in Noblesville, and from a very small beginning, it gradually grew to one of the largest carriage and wagon making companies of the Midwest. One hundred and sixty-five years and two location moves later, the dealership off Ind. 37 is run by Cole and Peck, sixth generation descendants of Wesley Hare. Cole said Hare Chevrolet has 650 new and 250 used vehicles available and also offers 35 rental cars. It also offers a parts store, body shop and shuttle service. “We’ve grown a lot the last two years,” said Cole. “We’re real fortunate where we are located.” GM has recognized dealerships in the U.S. with the Dealer of the Year recognition since 2000 – with a two-year hiatus in 2009 and 2010. To receive the honor, dealerships must be a top performer in sales and customer service. “It’s a huge honor. Our employees make the place happen … We’re getting first rate people,” said Cole. “We’ve elevated our-

selves from different seminars to sell more vehicles to the general public.” Dealers also need to show a commitment to customer service on a long-term basis by retaining customers and providing customers with exceptional service using Genuine GM Parts. Cole said the company’s goal is to encourage customers to return and refer. “It’s what we strive for,” she said. “We’re fortunate to have such a great customer database.” The Hare Chevrolet (2001 Stony Creek Rd.) sales deptartment is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Spirituality

Wisdom in the words of Rumi Commentary by Krista Bocko “Whatever purifies you, is the correct road, I will try not to define it.” – Rumi Ah, Rumi, you touch my heart. I only recently heard of Rumi in the past couple of years, when I found a quote that suited me and my love of hoop dance so well that I put it on my business cards: “We came spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars . . . The stars form a circle, and in the center we dance.” Where had I been? How had I missed Rumi? Was Rumi a man or a woman? A woman was my guess. I don’t think I’m all that well read, honestly, but I should’ve at least heard of her/him, right? I bought “The Essential Rumi,” a thick book full of Rumi’s poems on topics of human emotions, of life, death, love, of the Divine, and I pick it up and read it now and then. And it turns out that Rumi, a 13th-century Persian mystic, was actually a man (I was wrong). Still, I hadn’t discovered the quote that started this column

until the other night when I was on Facebook. Ah, Facebook, I’ve learned so much from your site and your faithful users! Sometimes people put their favorite quotes in their profile, and I love to read those. This one popped out at me from someone’s page, and it’s so appropriate. One of my friends recently mentioned that the older she gets, the less she cares about what other people think. Right on, sister! That’s what this quote so perfectly embodies to me. Whatever speaks to my soul, whatever road purifies me, that is where I want to go. Doesn’t matter what other people may think, they should not and will not be the ones defining my path. And conversely, neither should I be the one defining the paths of others. To me, it’s also a lesson in letting go of judgment and, in the process, being free.

Philanthropy Organizers prepare for 2nd Bed Race COMMUNITY

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

The greatest spectacle in racing will occur in Indianapolis on May 27. The greatest race in Noblesville will take place six days later on the downtown square at 9:30 a.m. June 2. The second Bed Race, sponsored by the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville and NoBennett blesville Parks and Recreation Dept., involves racing custom-designed beds on wheels along Logan Street. Teams are made of five people – four runners/ pushers and one rider. Teams are allowed to have an alternate in case of an injury; however, the alternate can’t be used to relieve another team member. Participation is open to all Hamilton County residents ages 16 and older. Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville Unit Director Abigail Stutesman said she hopes to have 24 teams participate in the race. Beds can be custom made, or Community Hospital has provided “vehicles,” which require a higher entrance fee. “It’s challenging and fun,” Stutesman said. Participants will help provide youth summer camp scholarships for both the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville and Noblesville Parks and Recreation. All of the proceeds from this event go directly to scholarships for both programs, which split the funds evenly. “It seems like every year it (scholarship needs)

It truly does help out,” Stutesman said. “We get a lot of scholarship requests,” added Brandon Bennett, Noblesville Parks and Recreation assistant director. “We don’t ever want anyone to not attend a camp because they can’t afford to.” Downtown Noblesville will be quite busy June 2 as the Bed Race will coincide with the Noblesville Lions Club Pancake Breakfast, Old Mill Festival, plein-air painters, National Trails Day and the opening of the Judge Stone House. “With it all in one location it should give it a whole new atmosphere,” said Bennett. “It’ll make it much more entertaining for racers as well as spectators. We’re going to have fun, bring that downtown feeling . . . Families can really make a nice day in downtown Noblesville.” Team registration is $50 for custom-made beds and $100 for provided beds. Registration forms can be found at and turned in to the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville, 1448 Conner St. For more information, contact Abigail Stutesman at 773-4372.

Cover story

Noblesville’s Woodward family explains the state of family farming in Hamilton County By Darla Kinney Scoles • editorial@youarecurrent.com As Rand Woodward exits his John Deere 8330 and walks across the field to greet a visitor, he picks up rocks as he goes. Hefty ones, modest ones – it doesn’t matter – they can all interfere with the planting of the soybean crop Woodward is putting in today. This much has not changed since Woodward started farming 700 acres in Hamilton County 36 years ago. Most everything else has. The tractor seat Woodward just left is a much more comfortable version than the one he started out in, especially sitting inside a climate-controlled cab with communication radios, computer display screen and push-button ease with which to work implements. Covering 26.7 acres in an hour at 5.5 mph, the machine, which Woodward will spend 300 hours in this season, steers itself via a GPS mapping system. It’s a far cry from 1962 when Woodward rode on his father’s horse-drawn, two-row planter, covering 10 acres per day, or even the open-seat tractor Woodward used in his early farming years – the noise from which has affected his hearing. “There were nice tractors and advanced technology out when I started farming in 1976 if you could afford it,” he recalls. “I could not. I planted with a six-row planter and had to go back and look to see what I had done. Today 32 rows go in at one time.” It still takes money to farm, however, as Woodward estimates his costs at $750 per acre for corn and $450 per acre to plant soybeans, factoring in all expenses. What cannot be factored in is the worry that goes along with every crop, which Woodward says is a greater weight on him today than in previous years. “I basically take $1 million and throw it in the dirt every spring,” declares Woodward, “and then I pray for timely rain and no bad weather. I’ve only had one perfect weather year in 36. Efficiency is up, but even so, last year yield was down due to weather.” Weather is indeed still the biggest unknown in farming despite advances in predicting and

As he works this day, rain is predicted for the late afternoon and Woodward has mixed feelings about that. “There are acres of newly planted corn needing that rain,” states Woodward, “and then these beans that need a little TLC. Too much rain initially can cause the muddy soil to seal the seeds underground and you have to go back and replant. Not enough rain delays crop emergence too.

“Our farm operation is out here to do go eat all land as though it was mine and treat landowners well. We love and respect the land and the relationships we’ve built over the years.” – Rand Woodward

“I don’t need to go to Vegas to gamble,” quips the father of two, “I take a chance every day. The ’80s and ’90s were terrible years. There was no money to be made and we lost a lot of farms. Now banks are happy to loan to farmers. It’s a good return.” Every member of the Woodward family has a stake in what happens in the fields each year. Rand still gets about 250 acres planted in a day’s time, often with the help of his son, Austin, whose agriculture studies at Purdue Uni-

versity focus on making farming more efficient and increasing productivity. Technological advancement, next to land development, has been the greatest factor influencing the family farm, as yield increase and cost savings are the result of constant upgrades in equipment and practices. “Being up-to-date can improve savings and being more efficient can save seed and make sure every seed comes up so that nothing is wasted,” said Austin. “More can also be done to use all of a crop’s products, not just the traditional ones.” Unable to physically join in, but watching from the side of the field every work day, is Rand’s father, Paul, whose own father and grandfather each tilled the soil as well. Now 86, Paul farmed at Whitcomb Ridge for 60 years. That area is now entirely developed. In fact, Woodward estimates that he, himself, has lost 7,000 farming acres to development since he began farming. Long before Austin joined the family, Rand’s wife Debbie worked alongside him and now plays a supporting role – as well as teaching health and wellness for Noblesville Schools. Daughter Ashley, a Purdue graduate, carries on the agricultural tradition as a marketing associate and show coordinator at Beck’s Hybrids in Atlanta, Ind. The family farm is a hard-working, sometimes rocky, but wonderful place to be, and the Woodwards plan to be there a long time to come. “Why would I retire?” said Rand. “I already get to do what I want to do every day. Isn’t that what retirement is? That’s what farming is, too.”

“Farming gives you a view of a life others don’t see. The days and hours are long and sometimes you sleep in your tractor. I love it, though.” – Austin Woodward

“When you see a tractor on the road, pull over. It’s on its way out to a field to feed, clothe and enhance your life.”

Buy local – visit a farmers market  It is our position that farmers markets serve as a valuable community resource by providing an outlet for Indiana farmers and growers to earn a living by giving residents easy access to locally produced fresh food. The organic food industry has taken the nation by storm, sending a strong message by consumers that they want healthier food choices. Some of the best farmers markets in the state can be found in Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield and Zionsville. Farmers markets offer one-stop shopping for locally raised meats, seasonal fresh vegetables and fruits, honey, tea, pasta, bread, cheeses, pastries, flowers and much more. And, who can resist strolling around the farmers market with a bag of fresh, hot, sugary, salty kettle corn; a breakfast brat from the Kiwanis or freshly brewed ice tea?  Vendors range from local family farms and restaurants to church and civic organizations. The farmers markets also depend on hundreds of volunteers for setup, tear down, cleanup and crowd assistance. Outdoor farmers markets in Carmel and Noblesville begin Saturday, Fishers farmers markets begin May 26 and the farmers markets in Zionsville and Westfield begin in June. Support local food producers by visiting a farmers market this summer.

Uncommon request Commentary by Terry Anker

Why is it so often those who give the most require the least, even as those who rarely offer anything are abundant with needs? At a buddy’s birthday party, I caught up with a longtime friend that I’d not seen for ages. He’s the kind of human that falls into the selfless camp. He served us all in the first Gulf War and has continued to always work to make the world a better place. So, I was a little surprised when he asked me if I could take a meeting with him the coming week because of a favor he needed to solicit of me. Asked if all was well, he naturally demurred, positing that life had never been better. With the arrival of the appointed day, we met and he shared his mission: to raise a little money to help some Vietnam-era veterans bring The Vietnam Veterans Memorial “Moving Wall” to Fort Harrison on Indianapolis’ northeast side from May 17 to May 21, to recognize the 30th anniversary of the conflict.

He earnestly recounted that these men and women were no longer young kids from newsreels. In fact, for many of them, this might be their last chance to join locally like this to recognize the sacrifice of those fallen. He reminded me that great wealth and military service rarely go hand-in-hand. Then, my friend, the decorated hero looked sheepishly across the table and added, “I wouldn’t ask for me, but these guys need the help; and I can’t do enough by myself.” Of course – I thought – he wouldn’t ask for himself. And neither would most of these folks. Isn’t that reason enough to want to give? VVA 295, P.O. Box 269279, Lawrence, IN 46226 is the address. Donations are tax deductible.

Here’s a chance to start summer off on the right note or foot – or both! – before summer actually begins. The Center for the Performing Arts and its artistic director, Michael Feinstein, are at it again. An evening of elegance and history making is on the near horizon, and we’re excited to be able to support it. You may recall the Center’s January 2011 sold-out gala that thrilled everyone in attendance. Well, on June 16, the Center is throwing the party of parties for this summer, another black-tie gala from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. The highlights of the night will be many, and they include a performance by Barry Manilow as well as his induction into the Manilow Great American Songbook Hall of Fame, whose other inductees include Alan and Marilyn Bergman and Cole Porter. Feinstein and other special guests also will perform. Put it this way: When Michael’s in the house, you never know what can happen. One thing’s for certain – it’s going to be a terrifically entertaining (and filling, considering the outstanding food and drink) evening. You can help the Center celebrate its wildly successful second season by being in attendance. To reserve tables, please contact the Center at its Encore Celebration Gala office at 819-3521. Organizers would appreciate hearing from you by May 24.

Another date with the dentist Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Oh. My. Lord. I cannot believe I had to go back to the dentist! You may recall from an earlier column that I have an irrational fear of dentistry, rooted in childhood trauma and a general lack of narcotics, and was trying desperately to postpone an appointment to have two cavities filled. Inspired by the bravery of my 10-year-old son, I eventually overcame my anxiety and managed to survive the unsettling procedure. One of the teeth I had fixed continued to bother me, even after a few days of expected tenderness. Naturally I ignored it and assumed I was just taking longer than usual to adjust to the ceramic material in the filling. A week passed, however, and the discomfort worsened. I began altering my diet to avoid aggravating the tooth further, cutting out sugary foods, crunchy treats and all taffy-like substances. Nothing helped. Subconsciously, I knew something was wrong, but I just couldn’t bear the thought of having to return to the dentist. I felt certain he would discover a missing filling or a cracked tooth or some sickening gum disease. In my denial, I preferred to suffer through a little toothache rather than learn the truth behind my pain. But as the days wore on and my entire jaw began to throb, I reluctantly realized I’d rather face the drill again a continue to eat only on my

left side and down Advil like jelly beans. (It was similar to my weighing the pros and cons of an epidural. For the first few hours of labor I found the contractions tolerable given my alternative was a needle to the spine. But when the real poo hit the fan, I would have let that doctor stab me in the eyeball if it made the pain disappear!) So I called the office and asked to be seen again, whenever they had an opening, preferably later in the week, next month would be fine. Wouldn’t you know they could take me that very afternoon? Frick! But no, I had to do it. As I drove to the appointment, I purposely chewed Hubba Bubba on the sore side to prevent myself from hightailing it straight to Starbucks – do not pass go, do not collect $200. I was hurting so bad once I got in the chair that I didn’t even have time to be nervous. Luckily, the problem was easily corrected without the need for topical anesthetics or arm restraints. Apparently my filling had not been smoothed down enough, throwing my entire bite out of whack. I basically freaked out over nothing. Ah, well, I lived to tell the tale, and that’s all that matters. Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at danielle@ currentincarmel.com.

When dentists make the news Laugh by Mike Redmond

tually, the lawsuit doesn’t even specify what the dentist was doing in there with a screwdriver. Anyway, she alleges that the thing went down her gullet into her stomach, causing intense abdominal pain, which makes sense. Who among us who has swallowed a hand tool didn’t complain of intense abdominal pain? Her suit says the doctor sent her to the emergency room for X-rays and told her to try to bring the thing back up or to eat a lot of fiber, which raises the question: How many bowls of Raisin Bran would it take to move a screwdriver down the old alimentary canal? Wow. If I take anything away from these stories, it is relief – relief that these people are not my dentist, for starters, but also relief that the guy who does my dental work is competent, sure-fingered and not mad at me. He has his quirks – he’s big on making you laugh when your mouth is full of cotton, dental tools and fingers – but thanks to him, I still have most of the teeth I started with. It isn’t newsworthy. And that’s just the way I like it.

And now, hold on to your hats because it’s time for … Dentists In The News! That might be the only time in history those four words have appeared together, in that order. Dentists tend not to make a lot of news. As a rule, they seem to be a fairly sedate group of professionals, at least compared to legislators, athletes and those wild-and-crazy middle school science teachers. When dentists DO make news, it’s big, like when these two made headlines recently: First was a dentist in London – England, not Ohio – who got revenge on her ex-boyfriend as only a dentist could. The ex, one Marek Olszewski, 45, scheduled an appointment with his former girlfriend, dentist Anna Mackowiak, for treatment of a toothache. She put him under and extracted the tooth. Then she extracted all his other teeth for good measure. Mackowiak is facing jail time and loss of her license for malpractice. Which, if you know anything of dental work in the United Kingdom, is more or less Wayne the standard anyway. Brush Script Medium Keep the stroke’s scale when enlarging or shrinking. OK, rinse and spit. Mike Redmond is an author, Stateside, Lena David of Louisville is suing journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ her dentist, Dr. W.B. Galbreath, for allegedly mikeredmondonline.com or P.O. Box dropping a small screwdriver down her throat. I 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244. don’t know if it was a flat blade or Phillips. Ac-

Morning Meals Digging in to the best breakfast joints in your neighborhood

By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com We always hear people say, “There just aren’t any good places to go get breakfast.” While there certainly are fewer local restaurants specializing in breakfast than there are specializing in lunch and dinner, there are still tons of great options here in our communities. One favorite of many earlybirds in Carmel is Bub’s Café located just south of Bub’s Burgers & Ice Cream along the Monon Trail. Bub’s Café features an extremely inviting and cheery interior that matches the quality of its food. While the café prides itself on its Big Stack (12 pancakes), the menu also features a number of re-imagined breakfast staples including a favorite, the Bub’s Breakfast Bread Bowl (bread

bowl filled with fried potatoes, choice of meat, sausage gravy, two eggs and cheese). The Roost at Sahm’s in Fishers offers a wide variety of breakfast staples including a number of great omelets featuring ingredients like chorizo, red onion jam and Feta cheese. Although the Roost opens as early as 6:30 a.m. during the week, breakfast is served all day. Noblesville’s Best Bet Breakfast and Lunch is an interesting eatery with a casino motif. Featuring entrees like The Big Deal (three tacos filled with eggs and Spanish sausage) and The All In (a double order of fried potatoes mixed with three eggs, ham, sausage and more), Best Bet may have a smaller menu than other restaurants in the area but it sets itself apart with its unique offerings.

Phoenix’s ‘Avenue Q’ brings the laughs By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com

The Phoenix Theatre’s production of Robert Lopez’s and Jeff Marx’s “Avenue Q,” which finished up its run on Sunday, was an apt capturing of the puppeted satire keeping audience members rolling in laughter throughout. The musical has always held a special place in my heart not entirely undue to the similarities between its plot and my own experiences. Led by the idealistic Princeton (played by Ben Tebbe), a just-out-of-college puppet with a “useless degree” in English and a burning desire to find his purpose, “Avenue Q” tells the tale of a group of tenants in a New York apartment who’re all trying to figure out their purpose in life – with varying degrees of success. The Phoenix’s production featured a versatile performance from Claire Wilcher, playing both the lecherous-but-lovable Trekkie Monster and the lecherous-but-lustable Lucy the Slut. The latter puppet’s appearance strayed from the traditional buxom blonde into a more Kardashianesque figure with Day-Glo orange skin … and that might be more appropriate for today’s audiences. As ever, the Bad Idea Bears’ endearingly terrible advice kept audiences laughing. The puppets were played by Jason Gloye and Eric J. Olson, who doubled as Rod and Nicky, respectively, and each shared an unsettling resemblance to their puppets.

Emily Ristine as Kate Monster, left, with Ben Tebbe’s Princeton. (Submitted photo)

The real star of the production, however, was theater-veteran Emily Ristine’s Kate Monster, who brought a perfect mix of bookish naïveté and grab-life-by-the-horns enthusiasm to the character. Other notable performances included Diane Tsao Boehm’s dual role as Christmas Eve and Mrs. Thistletwat, Dakeisha Bryant’s downon-his-luck Gary Coleman, and Brian, played appropriately by R. Brian Noffke, who seemed not at all uncomfortable playing one of the few human characters on a stage of puppets. The Phoenix Theatre’s production of “Avenue Q” was directed by Bryan Fonseca and musical director Kevin D. Smith. The next show at the Phoenix will be “Forever Sung: A Celebration of Age in Song,” created by Bryan Fonseca and Tim Brickley. The show will run May 17-26.

Film /Music

‘The Avengers’ starts the summer off right Commentary by Christian Sorrell During the past four years and across five different films, Marvel has been building the universe for the first live-action film adaptation of “The Avengers,” a long-running comic series. The film is a moment in Hollywood history that has never been accomplished or even attempted. It is a film that acts as a sequel to five of the largest-scale action films of the past several years. Already, it is apparent that Marvel’s plan has paid off. “The Avengers” set the record for the largest domestic opening weekend with more than $207 million in ticket sales. In the film, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) join together in order to save the earth from an attacking demigod and his cosmic army. The film does a great job of weaving together all of the previous films by featuring the villain of “Thor” using the device from “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Seeing all of these characters (and actors) in one film is extremely exciting to behold. It reminds me of the type of fantasy films I would cook up in my brain as a child that never actually came to fruition. From beginning to end, the film is brimming with wonderful dialogue, incredible over-the-

Insurance

Renters insurance an important investment Commentary by Ryan Samuelson I’m getting ready to graduate and am fortunate to have found a job that is going to allow me to finally move out of my family home. Is renters insurance something that I really need?-Andy L. from Carmel Congratulations on the new job! Now it’s time to protect that paycheck with a renters insurance policy. People like to make a lot of excuses as to why they neglect to purchase a renters insurance policy: “I can't afford it,” “I don’t have enough stuff to insure,” “Nothing is going to happen to my stuff.” The liability protection alone is really enough reason to buy, but let’s break it down. The first thing you need to know about renters insurance is that it’s pretty affordable. A typical policy can cost less than $200 per year. That’s less than $4 per week. It’s worth the sacrifice. You are also in for a nice bonus if you already have car insurance. Many insurance carriers will give you a multi-policy discount if you package your auto and renters policy together with the same company. The second thing you need to know is that your stuff is much more valuable than you realize. How much would it cost you to start over if you had a total loss? Apartments burn down and get robbed just like houses do. Starting over after a loss like that is much easier when your

Saturday, May 19 10AM-5PM Free

independent insurance agent drops off a check to replace all of your stuff. The last thing you need to know is probably the most important. A renters policy protects your financial assets by providing liability coverage. Liability insurance covers you for injury you cause to others and for damage to property that belongs to others. There are many ways to trigger a liability claim, so I’ve got some examples for you. Claim scenario A: You decide to play in a recreational softball league. While batting you hit a pitch back at the pitcher, putting him in the hospital. The pitcher sues you, and your renters policy steps in to defend you and settle the suit. Claim scenario B: You have some friends over for dinner. Your floor is wet and one of the friends slips and falls and requires medical treatment. Your renters policy steps in to pay for the treatment. The risk of going without this simple insurance coverage is not worth the couple of dollars a week that you save by not having it. Call your independent insurance agent today and make sure you’re covered!

Travel

A destination wedding: is it right for you? Commentary By Tracy Line Statistics show and experience tells me that destination weddings are on the rise. It’s not hard to understand why: a wedding in a tropical locale with sun, water and lush green gardens is nothing less than pure romance. Is a destination wedding for you? Read these commonly asked questions and the answers to help you decide. Where can I get married? Just about anywhere. Popular spots for weddings include Florida, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Mexico and a variety of Caribbean islands. You can also get married on a cruise ship. A wedding outside of the U.S. will take a bit more planning (see below). Will my wedding be legal if I get married outside of the U.S.? Yes, but you’ll need to follow the legal procedures of the country where you will be married. You may need to register your marriage with the local government (usually for a fee). And, there may be additional requirements such as remaining on the island for a set number of days. How many people can I invite? Destination weddings can be as small as you and your fiance (with a resort-supplied witness), or upward of 100 people. The larger the group, the more you’ll want to plan. Many resorts have wedding coordinators available to help you (sometimes for a fee) and travel agents can also

assist in coordinating details. Are destination weddings less expensive than a traditional wedding? They can be. However, you need to consider travel expenses, and whether or not your guests can afford to come. Many resorts, Sandals included, offer a free wedding if there are a small number of guests. Free comes with a catch – you may have to book one or more rooms at the resort in return for the wedding. There also may be additional fees for items like flowers and photography.

Genealogy

Can’t get there? Send a camera! Commentary By Darla Kinney Scoles With the summer months comes a flurry of activity in the genealogical realm, just like most other elements of society. Find-a-Grave requests are coming in by the boatload, and family history buffs everywhere are planning visits to hometowns, historical sites and cemeteries. But what if you just can’t manage an actual trip to see the original family homestead or ancestor’s gravesite? Send a camera, instead! Whether it’s time, distance, funds or transportation that keeps you from visiting a familial landmark in person, chances are you can swing the price of a disposable camera, postage and a small fee in return for some second-hand photos of a place that holds a significant place in your family tree. An enterprising blogger, it seems, did just that – and then passed the idea on via his blog for the rest of us to follow suit. Unable to visit his ancestor’s home in a far-away state, this undaunted soul contacted a realtor in the ancestor’s community and asked if anyone in the office would be willing to take a disposable camera (supplied with return-postage envelope) and snap a photo or two of the home and then

send the camera back. It wasn’t hard to find a willing photographer, who took pictures not only of the house itself, but also surrounding homes, neighborhood and community landmarks. Being a realtor, the photographer was also able to provide some local literature and information on the community – all for a mere $25 and a hearty and heartfelt “thank you” from the far-away family. Who would’ve thought? There are creative ways to accomplish what you cannot do in person via another willing volunteer – especially, I would venture – in the world of family history where people share and help one another on a regular basis. So if getting there is not possible, ask someone who is already there if they can help you see it anyway. “It never hurts to ask” applies in genealogy too.

Basement wine bar functions for whole family Remodeling by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BASEMENT: This home, located in the Woods at Grey Eagle subdivision in Fishers, was built as a custom spec home in 2005, and the homeowners moved in during 2006. According to the owners, “Although the basement was fairly nicely finished, we still wanted it more customized to our family’s needs. It was an alternative to moving – we took what we had and made it our own.” OPENING UP WALL: The wall separating the existing wet bar from the other finished room was opened up to provide a unifying feeling. New stained paneling was added to the back wall including a new French door opening to the theater room.
