Taylor honored for 30 years of business By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear presented a proclamation naming June 1 as “Bill Taylor Day” to Bill Taylor of Taylored Systems in recognition of the anniversary of his business’ 30th year in Noblesville. Bill Taylor was born in Kokomo in 1951. He grew up in a farming family and, after attending Vincennes University, worked in the grain handling industry for 10 years. In 1981, Taylor decided to seek steadier, non-seasonal employment. Always interested in electricity and electronics, he approached a friend who built computers for Delco. Through this acquaintance, he was introduced to a vendor who had just landed a contract with Indianapolis Public Schools for alarms in conjunction with phone systems. In 1982, Taylor formed Taylored Systems Inc., 14701 Cumberland Rd., Suite 100, Noblesville, when he was hired as a contractor for the IPS job. He was still working on the farm as well, but was hired to supervise employees working on the IPS project. After the project was complete, Taylor contracted with Datatronics, an inter-connect in Anderson. In the mid-’80s, he then purchased a call center. Through these two companies, he made contact with Indiana Bell and helped Datatronics become a Centrex Agency, the fourth in the state. 4 | June 12, 2012

Since its founding in 1982, the company has steadily built a reputation for combining leading edge technology with unparalleled customer support. By providing customized solutions and building long-term relationships, it’s grown to currently serve more than 2,500 customers throughout Indiana. Taylor is involved in many organizations in the community, most notably as vice president of the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Club of Noblesville. He is also involved in the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation, Hamilton County Progress Committee, Hamilton County Alliance, Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis Club. Current in Noblesville

YoungLife repeats as Bed Race champion By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

It wasn’t the normal traffic that tied up Logan Street the morning of June 2, as all types of beds raced up and down the Downtown Noblesville road between Eighth and Ninth streets. After the final checkered flag flew, the bed and racers from YoungLife claimed their second Bed Race title. “It feels awesome,” said YoungLife Captain Mike Redding, whose team placed first last year, too. “We wanted to keep the record alive. There was tough competition this year. It’s getting better and better.” Last year, adult volunteers participated as YoungLife’s team, but this year’s racers comprised students, including five from Noblesville High School. “We wanted to let the kids race this year,” said Redding, who was joined by Tyler Sparks, Braden Gillian, Gunnar Bowles, Stuart Alvey, Zac Ediza and Sam Hardwick. “It’s so fun to see their faces; they’re so excited about winning it brought joy to my heart. This is something we can share together – we can laugh and talk about it for years.” Redding said the team entered as a way to get the organization’s name out in the community and provide a fun experience for its high school students. “Our organization in Noblesville started in August two years ago. The YoungLife Club

meets once a week and is a Christian outreach for high school students,” he said. “We’re having an impact so far.” In the championship race, YoungLife defeated Team Olympia, comprised of Joe Concannon, Jake Taylor, John Gangnon, Bryce Cambell and Katie Souders. Taylor, the team’s captain, said the group decided to go with the Greek Gods theme this year after being pirates with a boatshaped bed last year. “It’s a lot of fun. We built our bed and made our costumes with a lot of teamwork – everyone’s happy,” he said. “Being right here in downtown Noblesville, we definitely got to show off a little.” The Bed Race is organized by the Boys and

Girls Club of Noblesville and the Noblesville Parks and Recreation Dept. To increase the event’s exposure, the race was held the same morning as the Noblesville Lions Club Pancake Breakfast, Old Mill Festival and Nickel Plate Arts Weekend events. “It was absolutely phenomenal and team spirit was awesome,” said Asst. Director for Noblesville Parks and Recreation Brandon Bennett. “Everything going on in Noblesville – this is why I love my hometown! We really hope to grow it a lot next year.” Boys and Girls Club Unit Director Abby Stutesman was also ecstatic about the event’s second year. “It’s 100 times better (than last year). It’s nice to be alongside other great organizations. I just think it was perfect,” she said. “I think it helps people understand what a bed race is. It’s great to be right here in front of the courthouse.” Proceeds from the event will be used to support youth summer camp scholarships for both the Boys and Girls Club and Parks and Recreation Dept. Stutesman and Bennett said the event raised $1,000 for scholarships. “We get more and more requests for summer camp scholarships every year,” said Bennett. “We never want to turn anyone away because they can’t afford camp. This is what being a kid is all about, experiencing everything they can experience.”

Et cetera Love local food, want more options COMMUNITY

Commentary by Krista Bocko

Last week I was on vacation in Vermont – again – and I was again struck by what they’ve got going on that I want so badly to see take root here in Noblesville. There are multitudes of village stores where you can buy local food, there are recycling bins all over the place and there are community bulletin boards for everything from local events to job postings to forsale listings, not to mention the tidy community gardens dotting the landscape. Sometimes, all of these amenities are located within the very same block. It’s so lovely and magical, and I sigh and wonder, ‘Why can’t we have that, too?’ I’ve been talking about starting up a small farmers market on the square for, oh, a couple years now. My vision is simple: to have another venue for farmers to share their hard work and another venue for consumers to come buy food that’s fresh and local. Yes, I know we have farmers markets already, but the problem as I see it is

this summer, stop hiding your legs!

that is they are all on the same day and all at the same time. Four hours per week in the busy summertime doesn’t leave much room for error in shopping local for food. And if you can’t make it Saturday morning? Well, you’re out of luck. I want to see a small market within walking distance of downtown on a weeknight, with only local food and a charm and ambience you can only find in those tiny markets – just like they have in Vermont. So my problem – again – is lack of time. I have people willing to help, but none of us can head it up. Shoot me a message if you’re feeling compelled to help bring a weekday farmers market to downtown Noblesville, and let’s see what magic we can make happen.

Show based on Carol Burnett’s memoir concludes Belfry’s 2011-12 season By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

The personal details of Carol Burnett’s upbringing and early career are the basis for the final adult production of the 2011-12 season at the Belfry Theatre, 10690 Greenfield Ave., Noblesville. “Hollywood Arms” was adapted from Burnett’s best-selling memoir, “One More Time.” Written by Burnett and her daughter, Carrie Hamilton, the dramedy is set in Hollywood, Calif., in 1941 and 1951, and centers on the heartbreak and laughter shared by three generations of women living on welfare in a dingy apartment house. “Upon my first reading, this play grabbed my attention and held it to the end. The humor and heartbreak is based on the memoir of one of the funniest women in American entertainWagner ment history – Carol Burnett,” said director Elaine Wagner. “Its theme of pursuing dreams is universal, but to see all that she had to overcome – the poverty, the abuse, her parents’ alcoholism and illness – and to see her come out of all that with talent, drive, humor and a generous spirit is truly inspirational.” The cast of characters, based on Burnett and her real-life relatives, includes no-nonsense grandmother Nanny; Louise, a beautiful, alcoholic mother determined to be a writer for movie magazines; Jody, an absent father who 10 | June 12, 2012

is struggling with his own demons; and Helen (Burnett), a young girl whose only escape is the rooftop of their run-down building, where she creates her own magical world and dreams of a successful show-business career. “She overcame so many obstacles growing up and you see that in this show,” Wagner explained. The show stars two Helens – as a child and 10 years later before she became a successful entertainer. Elissa Maudlin, who recently completed fifth grade at Noblesville Intermediate School, is making her second appearance on the Belfry stage as the younger version of Burnett. Maudlin “I’ve only done kid plays like ‘Aladdin.’ This was a good thing for my acting to try this,” she said. “The play is pretty emotional, complex and dramatic.” “She’s doing very well. She knew her lines before everybody else,” Wagner said about Maudlin. “She sings a little bit and she has a very pretty voice.” The play also provided Maudlin with another first – dying her hair to better match Burnett’s famous red locks. “I was a little upset at first because I didn’t think it would go back,” she said. “I like this a little better than my brown hair.” Maudlin said she enjoys acting and hopes it leads to a profession later in life.

“I aspire to someday be on Broadway and live to be on the stage,” she said. Maudlin stars in the first act and sets the stage for Jennifer Nicholson, music teacher at Noble Crossing Elementary School, as the older Helen in the second act. “It’s fun to watch her – she has lots of energy,” Nicholson said of Maudlin. “She’s precocious and her spirit helped to form Carol Burnett as an adult.” Nicholson When things got too serious, Burnett would make a joke – similar to Nicholson. “She’s a fan of Carol Burnett,” said Wagner. “She gets in that mode when she acts as Carol.” Nicholson has acted in 12 to 15 Belfry shows and numerous Shakespeare in the Park productions. Although she hasn’t performed on the Belfry stage for a while, Nicholson was not going to pass on “Hollywood Arms.” “This is [a show for which] I will set other things aside, because she was one of my childhood idols. It’s truly an honor to portray her,” she said. “It’s wonderful but very humbling as well. She’s been one of my idols since I first started watching her.” Nicholson said Burnett’s story is full of life lessons and inspiration, despite the hardships she faced. “It all shaped who she ended up being. You never would have known she rose above it,” she

Opinion

Super-size government It is our position that dictating what Americans eat and drink should not be within the realm of government. Apparently, the ongoing issues of education, unemployment, health care reform, homelessness and crime aren’t enough to keep lawmakers busy. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks super-size sugary sodas are putting the “big” in residents of The Big Apple and has introduced a resolution to ban them from being sold in certain restaurants and entertainment venues. Ironically, it was Bloomberg who campaigned to get an amendment passed in 2008 to super size his term in office. While the First Lady’s Healthy Food Initiative is positive in that it has reintroduced gardening as a hobby and as a low-cost source of healthy food, it has put the kibosh on super-size candy bars and served as the catalyst for federal regulations banning soda from being sold in schools during the lunch hour. A school in Utah was recently fined $15,000 for a violation. Unfortunately, schools have to use a lot of processed food because of regulations, budget and liability issues. If government can pave the way for old school lunch ladies to truly cook again, more power to them. Super-size government should super size the real priorities in this country, super quick.

Keystone/96th revision: Our region needs it

Misplaced loyalty

Commentary by Terry Anker

Why does it seem that most elected officials don’t retire naturally? They run until they are forced resentfully from office. Some voters accuse the politicians of an egomaniacal power-grab while others believe these mature statesmen have the most to offer and must continue to serve. Whatever the perspective, most of us count ourselves as loyal. We love our friends, our team mascot and our national flag. In fact, studies show that once we settle on a beer brand we almost never change it. Even dogs are lauded for their faithfulness. Could politicians continue to campaign out of some sense of misplaced loyalty to those in their employ? When a fresh-faced member of our U.S. Congress goes to D.C., they are first challenged with building a staff. In addition to hiring from the pool of professional bureaucrats lurking in the shadow of Capital Hill, they bring with them a handful of devoted kids from their district back home. Together they march to Washington, ready to make a

difference. Then life happens. In the subsequent years, these “kids” grow up living in the beltway. They meet and marry in Virginia (not their home states). Their children are born residents of the Imperial City, not the small town from which their roots sprang. By the time a U.S. Senator, for example, has served a few terms, her close-knit staff is no longer representative of the folks, well, represented. Considering reelection, are those most proximate to the senator entirely selfinterested? They say: you have more to do to serve our country. They mean: one more term and my kid will be out of school (“he is your Godson, senator”). They say: your state needs you. They imagine: what will I do without the job your office provides to me? Compared to personal interest, does the state always lose?

With all due respect to business owners in the Keystone Parkway/96th Street area, the recent news of the state’s decision to not pursue a roundabout now will have ramifications for our region. For drivers from Zionsville on the west to Fishers on the east, and multiple points in between, the intersection has proved nothing short of a traffic-management disaster. We know of several people that go out of their way to avoid that intersection and its miserable snarl of traffic. We do hear and understand the fears of merchants in that area; they justifiably worry about what yet another round of road construction would do to their businesses. In our opinion, a roundabout would pay dividends into the future for those that drive through or to that area and the businesses that would be reached with relative ease by comparison. The project still is on the books, but the two thoroughfares will be “war zones” once U.S. 31 shuts down for its hyperfix. It’s easy to write what should happen, because our business is not situated in that area of the marketplace. That stated, we’d consider it a noble and defining act if Gov. Mitch Daniels and his team found a way to step up and let everyone have his or her cake and eat it, too. It can happen. More than that, it needs to happen. We can’t have that intersection be a wrench in the motoring-andcommerce works any longer than it has to be. ••• Mark your calendars and buy tickets to this: The final performance of the Great American Songbook Vocal Academy and Competition is at 7 p.m. Friday at The Center for the Performing Arts.

Editorial

Using Web site, social media to better coverage Commentary by Robert Herrington Journalism has changed in two major ways since I began working for Indiana State University’s student-run newspaper my freshman year of college in 1999. When I started as a photojournalist, everything was shot with black and white film and developed in the dark room. Half an hour later, we were at the lightbox with a magnifying glass circling photos that needed to be scanned in. Add a few more minutes to complete that process and we were finally editing a picture using an early version of Photoshop. While I occasionally miss the chemical smell or solitude of developing film, the creation of digital cameras drastically improved the lives of photographers. Now we can instantly see what we take photos of to ensure we get “the shot” and complete assignments can be downloaded, edited and have captions written in the time it used to take to develop film and scan a photo. The other major change has been the importance of presenting news online and through social media. Now, I’m not old enough to say we didn’t have the Internet when I started as a journalist, but there was no Facebook, Twitter or MySpace. We had AOL and MSN instant messenger and that was all. Heck, texting wasn’t popular until later in college. As managing editor, I try to place as much news – and faces – in each edition as possible. However, sometimes the amount of news out-

weighs the amount of space available. Luckily, the space online is unlimited, so I’m using that to place more stories, photos and news. If you have a Facebook account, I encourage you to “like” us or at least check out our page at currentinnoblesville. I’ve started to boast our online photo galleries, so there are tons of pictures online that didn’t have space to appear in the newspaper – maybe even one of you! It’s new to me, but I’ve been trying to use Twitter to the best of my ability. Now I promise you won’t read that I’m grabbing food at a certain restaurant or chilling at so-and-so (I hate reading those because no one cares), but I will make community updates, like when the first summer concert was rained out. You can follow me at @CI_Noblesville. Photos and breaking news can also be found at www.currentinnoblesville.com. There you can find the current and archive editions of the paper, photo galleries and stories and vote on the online poll. So there are three options to keep in touch with our community news, and as always, I encourage readers to let me know of news and events to include in print – and online.

Summer family blockbusters Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Summer is here, my friends, and for me, it means two things: multiple opportunities for buttered corn at the movies and freedom from the daily grind of homework, bus stops and brown bag lunches. But these perks come with a cost – namely weight gain and delinquent children. So taking my cue from Rotten Tomatoes, here are some certified “fresh picks” for surviving the longest of the long school vacations: Amish Day: Horror. At least for my kids. The idea of surviving even one afternoon without their beloved Xbox or Kindle or iPod is enough to throw them into hysterics. But my husband and I both agree that they will not waste the beautiful weather hunkered down in the basement sniping Nazi zombies. So one day per week shall henceforth be designated Amish Day. Bedtimes on Elm Street: Legal Thriller. John Grisham could learn a few things about courtroom drama from our offspring at bedtime. They argue, mediate, bribe and stall just like real lawyers. But setting and enforcing consistent bedtimes is a must if our children are to get the rest they need, so as justices, Doo and I bring the gavel down on their antics. We simply can’t handle the truth of too few Z’s. Fun After Reading: BBC Documentary. Important yet oh-so-boring, we are once again requiring our precious little angels to participate

in the library summer reading program. They’ll resist, right up until they discover there are actually good books out there. Revenge of the Chores, Part 2: Foreign. Our kids have household responsibilities throughout the school year, but for some reason they think June marks the beginning of some kind of chore sabbatical. So getting them to continue with laundry, dishes, lawn mowing and cat care is like watching a Spanish soap opera – over-thetop drama with unrelenting eye rolling and cleavage-clutching gasps. A chore chart will continue to dominate our Frigidaire, muchas gracias. The Family Wilson: Comedy/Drama. Last year we instituted a game night, but this year we’ve switched things up and are starting a weekly Wilson movie night. Each of us will get the chance to select a film that the whole family must watch. This could go one of two ways, hence the double genre label. Hopefully, we will have tons of fun critiquing each other’s picks, but as in all families, chances are high that someone’s feelings will get hurt. Let the games begin… Peace out.

Heart disease: know the basics Commentary by Chintan Amin, MD, IU Health Physicians Internal Medicine

Affecting both men and women, “heart disease” refers to conditions that affect the function of the heart, such as coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. Coronary artery disease is a type of heart disease that begins when plaque builds up along the walls of arteries. This buildup narrows the arteries, restricting proper blood flow. If left unchecked, heart disease increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. Whether or not you have a family history of heart disease, it’s important to understand the risk factors for the condition, which include: • Smoking • Hypertension (high blood pressure) • Sedentary lifestyle • Obesity, especially excess fat in the central abdominal region • Elevated cholesterol • Diabetes mellitus (metabolic disorder resulting in elevated blood glucose) Practicing a healthy lifestyle, which includes good nutrition and exercise, is a good way to help prevent heart disease. Most people should engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. This helps control blood pressure and weight. Talk with your primary care doctor before beginning any exercise program. As for diet and nutrition, choosing the

right foods, such as fruits, vegetables and lean proteins, and avoiding excessive amounts of caffeine, sugar and salt also are good ways to prevent heart disease. Additionally, adults should have periodic preventive health exams and testing so that fasting cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as blood pressure, can be checked and treated, if necessary. While there is no one symptom that signals the onset of heart disease, there are a number of warning signs. Some of the most common include: • Chest pain or pressure • Unexplained pain in the back, chest, neck or arm • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing • Palpitations or “fluttering” in the chest • Indigestion, heartburn – and sometimes even nausea or loss of appetite Although these symptoms can indicate heart disease, they also may be related to many other conditions. Generally, I recommend contacting your doctor if you have new or unusual symptoms to ensure you are properly evaluated. If your doctor suspects heart disease, he or she will likely refer you for further testing. Chintan Amin, MD, specializes in internal medicine.

The Great American Songbook Vocal Competition brings young performers and professional talent to Carmel By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com This Friday, The Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative will host The Great American Songbook Final High School Vocal Competition. This annual event showcases high school talent from the Midwest and now a large portion of the country while giving students a week of professional-quality education with several award-winning celebrity performers. “We originally saw (the competition) as our chance to expose youth to this great music,” said Chris Lewis, The Great American Songbook Initiative’s Director of Education, “but now, it goes Lewis beyond simply achieving our initial mission. Now there is a huge educational component as well.” The first competition was held in 2009 and included five states across the Midwest. Selected students took part in an initial competition within their state. From there, finalists were determined and performed in the final, which

included a monetary prize to the winner and runners-up. Last year, the competition went on a brief hiatus while waiting for the completion of the Palladium. Coming back from this break, Lewis took the opportunity to increase the scope of the competition as well as enhance the educational component. “Originally if 100 students entered, only about 10 would experience the academy,” said Lewis. This year, the competition has been expanded to four different regions, two of which include New York and California. Through expanded online registration, the competition received nearly 200 applicants from across the country. Finalists were then chosen in several regional competitions, each featuring one day of master classes and workshops. Now, 40 students get to experience the Academy, which was one of the Initiative’s primary goals. The finalists are attending the complete academy experience all this week in Indianapolis. A wide array of classes and workshops are being taught by industry veterans and celebrity professionals such as Michael Feinstein, Sandy Patti and Sylvia McNair. While the students’

personal experience levels may vary, the aim of the academy is to help them become as great a performer and a professional as possible. “We have seen 18 year olds that are already accepted to a program coming in really polished and then 14-year-old freshmen that are also really strong, so it’ll be interesting,” said Lewis. The final performance will feature several musical numbers including the competition’s finalists and group numbers featuring many of the celebrity judges such as Michael Feinstein and Sandi Patti. “It’s less American Idol and more … something that I can’t really describe,” said Lewis. “It’s going to be an incredible show.”

The Great American Songbook Vocal Competition will be held this Friday at 7 p.m. at Palladium (1 Center Green, Carmel). Tickets are $25 to $50 general, $10 student and included in admission to Saturday’s Encore Celebration. Tickets are available online at thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

DOUGH

Business

Using your big words Commentary by David Cain Business meetings are tough enough, but one sure way to turn off customers is using a lot of industry-specific jargon. Every industry has their own lexicon, including acronyms and shortcuts that only industry insiders understand. It’s a natural tendency for all of us to talk in terms we understand, even if we are discussing things with people outside of our industry circles. It’s the business equivalent of telling inside jokes that only someone who’s known you for years understands. It’s like telling secrets or talking in code. Even if you take the time to explain what your terms mean, often it is an afterthought or in response to your attendees’ inquiry. And, really, no one truly wants to learn your industry – they just want you to know it and explain it in a way that makes sense to them. In business meetings, just like any gathering, you’ll find your attendees will be more willing

to listen, believe and act on what you’re meeting about if you speak in a language that includes them. Even if you explain what your terms mean, you are better off avoiding industry-specific terms and talk in universal terms. Industry jargon will confuse your customer or client and, what’s worse, make them have to think – and thinking leads to indecision. Clean it up and leave the industry lexicon for the water cooler. Impress your prospects and clients by using simple terms and alternative descriptions and analogies for your industry language. What you’ll find is a greater understanding and an audience more willing to take action because they are included and feel just as smart and up-to-speed as you are.

Step into your greatness Commentary by Kristen Boice

Do you ever feel like you can’t get out of your head? Your mind is filled with the same thoughts that play over and over. Do you worry and have a lot of anxiety? Are you operating out of fear? Are these blocks to stepping into your worth? When we start waking up to our inner self, we can start changing it. Awareness is the first step toward making change. Below are some immediate steps you can take to begin shifting your selfworth and stepping into your greatness. 1. Change your thoughts. Your thoughts determine your feelings, and your feelings determine your behavior. It’s important we work on changing our thoughts. When you are fearful or anxious, focus on being grateful. It can be as simple as being thankful for the ability to see or hear or observing nature and noticing what you appreciate. An attitude of gratitude can instantly change your mood. Keep a gratitude journal and write in it to start and end your day. 2. Do something different. Have you heard the saying, “What you resist will persist”? Are you in resistance to something in your life, such as change, because you are afraid of pain, getting hurt or failing? If so, you are going to stay stuck

in the same pattern and way of thinking and being. If you do the same thing, you will get the same results. For example, when you feel angry or afraid, instead of yelling, screaming or withdrawing, take a walk and be intentional about it. 3. Try out different ways of being. If you want more joy in your life, try stepping into joyfulness. Walk around as if you are joyful. If you want to be more flexible, try being flexible in different situations. We are all born pure souls, and then we are layered with childhood stuff, trauma, society, peer pressure and so on. We want to get back to who we are at the core. 4. Develop a vision. We think in pictures. Picture the vision for your life and how you want to be or act. Having a vision can lead you to change your thoughts, feelings and to take action. You are here for a purpose! It’s never too late to get rid of the old negative tapes that started early in your life and be the person you were created to be.

Family history advice column a helpful find Commentary by Darla Kinney Scoles There is nothing new about advice columns, as the likes of Dear Abby and Ann Landers have been around for quite some time. Applying that forum to family history, however, is a somewhat more recent turn – and newer still, to me. Recently I discovered “Dear Myrtle,” a genealogy blog that takes reader questions and answers them publicly for the benefit of all. Tagged as “Your friend in genealogy since 1995,” “Dear Myrtle” has won all sorts of accolades for its service to searchers. I’m apparently behind in finding this gem only of late. But that’s OK – any family history junkie will concur that we find things just when we need them in this endeavor. Averaging 400 posts per year, the Q-and-A blog covers a lot of territory – from multiple marriage questions and military records of the sick and wounded, to British royal staff records. Most posts include photos, which can be quite helpful when trying to understand and translate information from another’s experience to one’s own. No stone is left unturned in delving into a question, either, as all possibilities are explored and examined for the best answer based on evidence in hand. Sometimes

the answer is simply that more evidence is needed still. The blog also includes lessons for those just starting out, organization tips for those buried in paperwork chaos, webinars, suggested books and even Tweets for those who like their genealogy on the go. All of this free advice comes from Pat Richley-Erickson, a frequent guest speaker at regional and national genealogy conferences, whose blog is consistently among the top five family history blogs internationally. Richley-Erickson is co-founder of the Genea-Quilters group on Facebook, and founder of www.GeneaWebinars.com, a centralized calendar and blog for all known genealogy webinar hosts and virtual presenters. Seek advice from “Dear Myrtle” at http:// blog.dearmyrtle.com/ Now that I’ve found the place with all the answers, which of my 5,637 questions should I ask Myrtle first?

Her most recent work involves the creation of “Stories”, an individualized writing service helping people get their personal histories down on paper. Contact her at darlakinneyscoles@gmail.com.

Gardening is for the birds Commentary by Holly Lindzy

Each morning for the past month I’ve watched cardinals, robins and catbirds devouring my serviceberry fruit, less than 10 feet from my seat on the porch. It’s been my favorite part of the day. Not only that, but I’ve also noted the hummingbirds back at my fuchsia, catmint and agastache. What fun! And there are several bird species that gather and flit in the burning bush hedge across the street. We see the same families from day to day and how they’ve grown. I love it! I think that’s why I’ve decided gardening is for the birds . . . sincerely. Used to be, I’d spend my mornings filling and refilling birdfeeders. I enjoyed putting out quality seed like safflower and thistle and watching the birds flock and riot over who’d be next. Before long, all the ruckus over thieving squirrels and empty feeders had me worn out. Not to mention somewhat broke. That’s why in recent years, I’ve taken to planting things around my yard specifically for the Shapes – Creating an outdoor space, but find that it seems to be disconnected from the rest of your home? Try using architectural connectors like overhangs, colonnades, and pergolas. - goodhousekeeping.com

birds to feast on so I can observe them in a more natural environment – and it’s much more economical. For example, my Black-eyed Susan is in brilliant bloom right now, but by the end of the summer it will be mobbed by finches reaping the seed. And its bee balm companion? The hummingbirds will be stopping at it until the end of summer. Come fall, I hope to find a bird’s nest in my Rose of Sharon. If I’m lucky, it’s a hummingbird’s. Gardening is so much more than just flowers. As much as I loved shopping at the Feed and Seed, I find it more rewarding to see the birds enjoy things naturally, as it was meant to be – squirrels and all. And, it gives me an excuse to buy more plants. Holly Lindzy is an Indiana accredited horticulturalist and advanced master gardener residing in Noblesville.

UBER BOUTIQUE

New master bath gives spa-like experience Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BATHROOM: This home, located in the Carolina Commons subdivision on the east side of Carmel, was built in 1985, and the current homeowners purchased the home in 2000. According to the owners, “The bathroom was a typical ’80s style, with a large garden tub, dark wood, bulkheads, low sinks and a small shower. We were thinking about moving out of the neighborhood, but we like the area and our lot, so we decided to invest in the house. We started with a kitchen remodel and then moved to the master bath.” SPA-LIKE DESIGN: The owners worked with the design team to create the vision they wanted. “We travel to nice hotels and spas quite a bit, and brought ideas from those places into our bathroom design. We spend a lot of time in the master bath, and we wanted a spa feel in our home.” MASTER BATH DETAILS: The project included a new walk-in shower with pebble mosaic tiled floor, natural Gobi slate tile walls, LED lighting and Brizo Virage plumbing fixtures in oil-rubbed bronze. A new Kohler Archer dropin soaking tub includes a slate surround and matching cabinet panels on the front. The cabinetry is antique-white custom maple cabinetry with a brown glaze and center tower cabinet.

We are also proud to say they are made locally.” – ANNE BRANHAM jets, the pebble floor, the soft LED lighting and the slate walls with built-in niches. At first I was a little worried about how the pebbles would feel, but they feel like a little massage on your feet. The heated floors are nice, too. We enjoy having plenty of room in the shower.” A SPACE JUST FOR YOU: The homeowners noted, “When you spend time and money on a kitchen remodel, you are doing it for yourself and for others, like family and friends. When you do a master bath remodel, you are doing it for yourself only. It is nice to have a space that is all your own.” Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a full-service design/build firm serving Hamilton County.
