Showmanship runs in the family

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com July 22 was a day of pure excitement and relief in the Russell home as siblings Brad and Sammy Russell both captured show4-H fair manship titles. The Noblesville residents were each competing in their respective contest for the second time – Sammy in Royal Showmanship and Brad in Supreme Showmanship. “I felt relieved. I was more nervous, it was heavier on my shoulders because I got reserve champion last year and everyone was expecting grand champion,” Sammy, a junior at Hamilton Southeastern High School, said. “It gave me an idea of what all the judges were looking for.” “It felt good just getting into it,” Brad said. “It was a lot easier this time around. I had no idea how to show beef or dairy cows and horse was a disaster (in 2011).” Royal Showmanship winners from rabbits, poultry, cats, llamas, dogs and Pygmy goat projects compete to master the showmanship techniques not only of their own animal, but of all six species. Supreme Showmanship includes senior showmen from meat goats, dairy goats, beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, sheep and horses. A qualified judge from each species puts the contestants through their paces with each animal – never knowing for certain which

4-H’ers won which species. Judges score the participants based on their handling of the animal and rank them accordingly. Brad previously competed in Supreme Showmanship in 2011. He tied Megan Pickering and LJ Young as this year’s winners. “It’s a great way to end my 10 years,” Brad, who recently graduated from HSE, said. Each was on hand to watch the other and was just as happy for their sibling as they were on their own win. “I jumped out of my seat and hollered,” Brad said. “I was excited. She was there to win it, and I knew she’d do well.” “I was still nervous, just as much as when I competed in Royal. I told him, ‘No pressure but I won so you have to now,’” Sammy said. “When I heard his name, I was so surprised and happy for him. He went in trying to be relaxed – whatever happens, happens. He just wanted to get in it.” Both Russell siblings show Pygmy goats, meat goats and poultry. Brad also shows swine and dairy goats. The siblings said the other has been there to support them. “We showed the same animals, sometimes in the same class. I would do what he’s doing. He was always giving me tips,” Sammy said. “It’s just fun to work with somebody else raising the animals – to have a great relationship,” Brad said.

Consecutive victories at Lincoln Park Speedway and Bloomington Speedway pushed Clauson into the points lead in the series after Kevin Thomas Jr., who won three consecutive races in the series, struggled at Bloomington.

Eddie’s to close Wednesday

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com One of Noblesville’s popular downtown restaurants will be closing its doors on July 31. Well-known for his personality and generosity, Eddie Mode opened his business restaurant, Eddie’s Corner Café, 17 years ago. “My dad’s 87, so this may be a blessing in disguise,” Sandy Ehrgott, Mode’s daughter, said. “He’s pretty sad about it. The community has been wonderful. Being a part of downtown has been a joy in our lives.” The restaurant is on its seventh page of customer’s contact information to inform them of the businesses’ future plans. Ehrgott said a new location is a possibility, but unlikely. “There’s always an ending, there’s always a beginning,” she said. “I don’t know if it’s going to happen. It’s not looking like it is.” Ehrgott said the owner of the building at 101 N. Tenth St. gave notice to Mode two weeks ago that his lease was not being renewed. “They wanted to do something else with the building,” she said. “We’re not bitter; they are wonderful people. People have the right to do whatever they want with their property. We wish them well.” The building is owned by Nova 29 Property Management, which purchased it in January. "We at Nova 29 Property Management appreciate what Eddie's Corner Cafe has meant and provided to the City of Noblesville,” Craig Crosser with Nova 29 said. “We unfortunately were unable to renew the lease due to an inability to agree upon lease terms with Eddie's Corner Cafe. We at Nova 29 wish them well in the future." As of print time, Mode was out of town on a mission trip to Nicaragua and was not available for comment. Since 1997, he has made a number of trips to Nicaragua where he works at an orphanage. Mode has helped build two schools and a number of single-family homes for residents there. In an Aug. 2, 2011, Current in Noblesville story, Mode said helping children in Nicaragua is “the best thing I’ve ever did in my life.” “Eddie’s a personal friend with whom I have much respect for his support of the community. He’s frequently asked to sponsor and be involved

in many worthy causes and to the best of my knowledge, he’s always said yes, because that’s the kind of guy he is,” Sharon McMahon, Noblesville Chamber of Commerce president, said. Mode, a veteran of World War II and Korean War, is a life member of Navy Club USA Hamilton County Ship No. 29. Ship Commander Ron Wilson said Mode signed on the first time he was asked to join the club and insisted they meet in his restaurant. “He gives of his time and energy to our club and makes it a point to make sure when we have special events to give a helping hand each and every time,” Wilson said. “What an honor it’s been for all our members and officers to get to know Eddie and to have the opportunity to work with him and his family. All the members of Ship No. 29 want to give a special ‘Thank you!’ to Eddie and we wish him fair winds for the rest of his voyage.” To reward customers, Eddie’s Corner Cafe will be offering a free lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, the final day of business. “We’re not celebrating a closing; we’re celebrating 17 years of friendship and food,” Ehrgott said.

Police shoot suicidal suspect

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Noblesville Police Officers are highly trained in dealing with emotionally disturbed people, and it seems those crime skills are being called into play more and more. On July 20, after less drastic means were unsuccessful, Noblesville police officers shot and wounded an apparent Bell suicidal man near Riverview Hospital, at 395 Westfield Rd. At press time, the suspect, Taylor Bell, 27, remained in critical condition in Methodist Hospital where he was taken after the shooting. According to Sheriff Deputy Bryant Orem, the Hamilton County Communications Center received a call at 9:36 p.m. from Bell who was claiming he had a gun and was going to set himself up to be killed by the police by pointing the gun at officers. At 9:56 p.m., officers located Bell, and an NPD negotiator started communications with him. “During the negotiations, Mr. Bell produced a pistol from his waistline and was waving it at the ground,” Orem said. “Noblesville Police Dept. officers initially deployed less than lethal bean bag rounds in an attempt to control Mr. Bell.” Around 10:33 p.m., Bell attempted to flee and two officers deployed tasers which were ineffective. Bell then raised his weapon and pointed it in

the direction of three nearby NPD officers. “The three officers each fired one round from their patrol rifles striking Mr. Bell twice. Officers administered first aid to Mr. Bell until medics arrived on the scene,” Orem said. As is often the practice with police action shootings, Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt requested a different agency investigate the incident and turned control over to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. While it is becoming a national phenomenon, Jowitt said this was the first incident of a person attempting “suicide by police” in recent memory. “Our officers get a pretty significant amount of training on various aspects of emotionally disturbed people,” Jowitt said, adding that the disappearance of state mental health facilities means law enforcement is dealing with more mental and emotionally disturbed people. “Suicidal and attempting suicide calls are not as infrequent. We’ve

had far more situations with mentally or emotionally disrupted people than we used to.” Jowitt could not comment on the current investigation but said NPD officers are trained to deal with unsettled suspects. “We always try to resolve any situation without having to resort to force. When we do, we use the minimal amount of force. All officers have multiple options other than firearms,” he said. With any horrific event officers are involved with, Jowitt said the department’s criticalincident team immediately comes out and talks to officers. With police action shootings, the critical-incident team is debriefed and officers are required to visit with a psychologist. He added that officer’s spouses also are provided with a counselor if needed. Bell’s weapon recovered at the scene was a Beretta air soft gun. Jowitt said these look-alike weapons are “virtually not distinguishable” as fakes from a distance. “You’re not able to tell they are not real. It looks like a compact Beretta,” he said. “There’s nothing about that weapon you couldn’t tell without a close exam what it was.” Jowitt said the popularity of air soft and pellet guns are the cause for more phone calls from concerned residents about weapons being out in the public. “It happens more than a little bit,” he said. “Officers have to assume it is a firearm until proven otherwise.”

Mini but mighty By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

The 1/16th model tractor pull is an engineering and design project which 4-H’ers start with a metal 1/16th scale toy tractor and add a motor, gearbox and rubber tires to create a scale size pulling tractor. “You make the models all from scratch,” Heartland 4-H’ers’ Diana Rulon said. All members must complete at least one year in the beginner (electric) and one year in the intermediate (fuel) Pro-Stock class before being able to exhibit in the advanced division regardless of their grade in school. Rulon said the Super-Stock class includes a handheld throttle. Because of the expense and complexity of converting to the fuel powered classes, advancement to fuel power will be at the discretion of the member. “It’s a very well rounded project,” Rulon said. “You learn some skill sets and combine them together.” “The right dimensions, diameters for gears… it’s complicated, but we get it done,” 4-H’er Craig Dalzell said. Dalzell said the motors are similar to model airplanes and use nitro methane fuel. He said his tractor runs at 2,200 rpms and can pull hundreds of pounds. “I like the pulling,” Heartland 4-H’ers’ Craig Dalzell said. “Just to hear the motor’s sound – the adrenaline rush; I shake every time.”

She has been involved in the sewing project for seven years and credits her mother for teaching her the skills of the trade. “I would wear the jacket,” she said. “I went for more in style with braided trim and a popped up collar.” For her project, Boram created a brown leather coat, teal shirt and black dress pants. “I always wanted to make a leather coat. We bought a hide of leather. It was huge; we could make another jacket,” she said. “Black and brown go well together and teal really pulls it all together.”

Hoppin’ through 4-H

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

is a difficult task. “It takes a lot of time and work to take care of rabbits. I change their cage very often. Depending on the breeds it could be every two days,” she said. One interesting fact about rabbits is they “can’t eat spinach,” according to Dailey. Pet rabbits typically feed on pellets and hay.

Harey Hoppers is a specialty 4-H club for youth interested in rabbits. The club’s membership is full of families and friends. “My best friend did 4-H rab4-H fair bits and someday I wanted a rabbit,” Megan Dailey said of her start. “My sister had rabbits. She won Best in Show, and we got hooked,” Noblesville’s Grant Beechboard said. “My cousin was showing for quite awhile, so I did rabbits. I always liked seeing the rabbit show,” Noblesville’s Jackson VonBlon said.

Vanilla ice cream still a hit

A wash and a blow-dry, please

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

By Anna Skinner • news@currentnoblesville.com

In their first year competing in the Homemade Ice Cream contest in 1988, Dotty and Chuck McMillian weren’t sure of 4-H fair the rules. Instead of bringing their supplies ready to begin making ice cream, the Noblesville couple had all raw materials. “We brought the kitchen with us,” Dotty said. “We came ready to go. We got it done. We were really cranking.” Since then, the McMillians are a staple at the event, which is open to all Hamilton County residents. “When we started, there were three other people. Our granddaughter was a child, she’s 27 now,” Chuck said. One of the biggest changes in the contest is the number of participants. This year, there were 26 entries including eight first-time participants. “There’s a lot more variety, different makers,” Chuck said. “There’s more family members, too, because the family’s grown.” Taking an entire row of tables, the McMillian clan works on a variety of flavors including maple walnut, but Chuck says it all starts with his vanilla recipe. “I like the basic flavors of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. You use a good base vanilla recipe to make any variations,” he said. “We throw things in – a little something special every

Twelve-year-old Jesse Cold has competed in 4-H for four years with cattle and pigs, but he chose to compete with 4-H fair cattle this year. He worked with his cow for about a year to prepare it for the Hamilton County 4-H Fair. Since the judges look for muscle mass, bone mass and how much hair the animal has, Cold had to work hard during the past year to Dotty and Chuck McMillian compete in their 25th Homemade Ice Cream Contest at the Hamilton County 4-H Fair on July 19.

now and again.” Each team of two to four people have 40 minutes to make its favorite ice cream recipe. Prizes are awarded in three categories: all flavors – electric freezer, all flavors – crank freezer and youth (ages 19 and under). In the youth division, Kate and Taylor Gerardot of Fishers competed in the contest for the first time. “They love ice cream and cooking. It’s a good combination,” their mother, Amy, said. Team Yummy, as they called themselves, served peanut butter ice cream which won the youth division and overall grand champion. “We made it one time and decided we loved it,” Taylor said. “We put Reece’s cups in it and fudge on top.”

get his cow ready for the fair. “You have to feed them a lot and blow dry and rinse them because that helps the animal grow and helps it grow more hair,” he said. “The hardest part is getting them washed because you have to soak them a lot and rinse them.” Cold is excited to show off his black cow named Georgia to the judges. “My favorite part is getting in the arena and showing how good you’ve done,” he said.

Chicken feet and feathers matter By Anna Skinner • news@currentnoblesville.com It’s always fun to see the interesting breeds of chickens at the Hamilton County 4-H Fair, but there’s a lot more that goes 4-H fair into preparing a chicken than one might think. Fourteen-year-old Kylie Dugger of Noblesville explains the process to prepare Clanky, her white boiler chicken. “You have to wash them and check for feather loss,” she said. “The object is how fast and how big you can get your chickens to grow before 4-H. To make a chicken grow faster, you feed them well and care for them properly.” At the Poultry Showmanship, judges check the feathers, body and feet of the chicken. Dry

Construction will take place at Noblesville High School’s Main Campus and Freshman Campus as Noblesville Schools preEducation pares for the 2014-2015 school year. With the sale of Noblesville East Middle School, the district will transform the Freshman Campus to the new NEMS. Construction will take place during the school year, but it should not interfere with students in the classroom. Supt. Libbie Conner said Promise Road Elementary was built in 11 months and the most recent additions from the 2010 referendum were done during the school year. “The additions will all be outside so the only interference is parking and traffic flow,” she said. “Next summer will be huge in terms of finishing up without students around.” Performance Services, Inc. has been hired to handle the construction. They built the additions to the elementary schools in 2010 and the new

administration building this year. “We have had excellent results with the company,” Conner said. “They do what we need them to do and have done it well in a short period of time.” Jerry Rolfson of Performance Services said NHS will have additional classrooms for Project Lead the Way, performing arts and a larger band room. A two-story addition for freshman classrooms and new administration office will connect with a new front entrance. “We’ll carry through the image of the building, making it look like it’s always been there,” Rolfson said. The Freshman Campus will have a new dropoff location and its looping corridor system and will have dead ends removed. “Small rooms will be renovated and expanded. We’ll increase window sizes to give a contemporary feel to the building and more natural light into the classroom,” Rolfson said. The baseball diamond will have to be replaced but the tennis courts will remain.

We have three teenage children on the spectrum with varying ranges of disabilities. With Autism Clinic of Indiana, we learned what was happening to our children from the inside out.

Construction and changes in technology, schedule and security face district in 2013-2014

By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com

Noblesville High School students will be on the cutting edge of Cover Story technology starting this fall. As part of its 1:1 program, the district has purchased enough iPads for every student to use one throughout the school day and year. Each student in grades 10 through 12 will receive an iPad they can keep until the end of the year and potentially even through summer break. “Teachers are doing some very engaging things with the iPads,” NHS Principal Jeff Bryant said. “They are excited about it. They know the impact it will have on students.” Technology Instructional Coach Christy Steffen said teachers have been training with iPads since January “Teachers are looking at curriculum and focusing on 21st Century Skills. Technology is just a piece of that,” she said. “It’s an amazing opportunity for us. Our teachers are so excited and on board. They are looking at innovative ways to incorporate it into the classroom.” “I like them. It’s more advanced for our school,” senior Shannon Fairlie said. “Not all books are online and not everyone has internet at home.” Steffen said the school-issued iPads will be filtered through the high school’s internet “no matter where they are, even at home.” Students will be allowed to download apps, but ones rated for 13 and older will be blocked. While students can bring their own iPads in, only ones with the school profile can access the internet. “Students have access to information. They can navigate the world as it is now and not how it was,” Steffen said. “It opens up opportunities for teachers – more interaction textbooks,” sophomore Alyse Millikan said. “It prepares us more for what they do outside (of high school),” Benefits of the iPads include the reduction of paper, an increase in student engagement, flexibility with learning and credit recovery and the elimination of most computer labs, which saves the district $175,000 and will provide five additional classrooms of space. “They’re doing it to reduce your book load. I can’t forget my notes because it will be on my iPad, which will be a good thing,” sophomore John Kiser said.

What else is new

Noblesville Schools’ principals explain what will be different at their buildings this fall: Hazel Dell – Four new teachers: Colleen Jacobs, third grade; Ben Juffer, fifth; Shawn Davis, fourth; and Christine Van Dam, second. Hinkle Creek – A new Language Arts program called Journeys will be implemented in all grade levels and a new climbing wall in the East gym will be a part of the physical education curriculum. Noble Crossing – Third-grade teachers have received a grant from Vectren to purchase 30 iPadMinis to use in their classrooms. All classrooms have easier access to technology as mobile labs and iPad labs have been moved from the library out into the building. Each grade level has a mobile lab and iPad lab to share. North – The school welcomes William Fama who will be teaching fourth grade. Promise Road and Stony Creek – Project Fit America equipment is being installed and programming will begin this fall. This will be Noblesville’s third and fourth elementary schools to join the PFA

program. White River – 102 area kindergartners starting school NHS – 2,000 iPads will be in the hands of students in grades 10-12 and will be used for instructional purposes. NEWS and NWMS – The middle schools will begin offering Project Lead the Way’s “Gateway to Technology” pre-engineering program as a part of their nine-week rotation of classes. NEMS will pilot a 1:1 initiative with iPads in the seventhgrade social studies classes and NWMS will pilot the initiative in sixth-grade social studies classes. NEMS welcomes Jen Schott as seventhgrade counselor and eight new teachers; NWMS welcomes Ara Nelson Mercer as assistant principal and seven new teachers. Central office – The Noblesville Schools’ administrative and support staff moved into the new Educational Services Center at 18025 River Rd. just north of Marsh Supermarket. The center houses the superintendent’s office as well as offices for the district departments of curriculum, technology, student services, human resources, business, food services, community relations and operations. The district office phone number is unchanged (773-3171).

District begins balanced calendar

Noblesville Schools gauged the community and despite some objections, approved a balanced calendar starting with this school year in October 2012. While other school districts within Hamilton County begin two weeks later, Noblesville Schools starts Aug. 1. Officials said balanced calendar advantages include reductions in summer learning loss, less remediation, improved attendance, increased opportunities for student internships, reduction in the number of student referrals for behavior, student and staff rejuvenation, off-peak travel times for families, ease in scheduling medical appointments and no significant change in energy costs. Supt. Libbie Conner said having the two-week breaks are not the issue, rather it is the direct impact on achievement from them. “Students and staff coming back relaxed and refreshed is the bigger issue,” she said. Challenges of the change include difficulty adjusting to the new schedule in the first year; less time for major construction, renovation projects and custodial cleaning; and schedule adjustments for summer school and athletics.

Noblesville students said the schedule change will not affect them. “I like starting early, but wish I could go back on Monday (Aug. 5) because Band Day is on the second day of school,” senior Kendall Gatewood said. “The extra time off during the break will be good, but I don’t like the summer being cut short,” Sophomore John Kiser said. “It won’t bother me. I won’t notice it (starting early).” Important Dates Aug. 1 – Start of school Sept. 27 – Homecoming Oct. 14-25 – Fall Break Nov. 27-29 – Thanksgiving Break Dec. 23-Jan. 6 – Winter Break March 31-April 11 – Spring Break May 30 – Last day of school

Securing access to buildings

Noblesville Schools is taking measures to ensure its security is the best available at all of its buildings and is implementing a new security system this school year. The biggest change for parents and others visiting a school will be the fact that they will enter a secure vestibule before entering the school itself. In addition to securing vestibules, the district has installed video phone systems in all elementary and middle schools to allow communication between a guest and the school’s receptionist. Guests will be allowed into the office area only after their identity has been established and the reason for the visit verified by the school receptionist. “This way, we know it’s a person that should be here,” Student Services Director Mark Booth said. “Once inside the lobby, we will scan the back of a driver’s license or ID card and run a check on the national sex offender list before they are allowed entrance.” Identification information will be entered securely into a database and maintained for future visits. After identification information is established, all visitors will have their picture taken, receive a photo identification badge that is valid for one day, and then be allowed to continue to their destination. Booth said if a problem occurs, secretaries will have a panic button that sends text alerts to administration officials to report to the office. Like entrance into the office, a visitor must be buzzed through a secure door to enter the school’s hallway.

Know thyself, first Commentary by Terry Anker Several years ago, my body decided that it was no longer equipped to process the boundless array of empty calories that my brain seemed to enjoy so much. While Cheetos probably aren’t an appropriate food for a 35-year-old man anyway, I did enjoy them. And for much of my life, the pounds that they might have added were dispersed through the activities of my daily life. I played competitive adult basketball, ran to and fro, and lived what might be known in the current lexicon as the active lifestyle. Yet almost by stealth attack, the bulge continues to expand. Once I resigned myself to the fact that no amount of willpower could force my metabolism to return to its former pace, I began to look for other mechanisms to tame the ever advancing fat. Chief among them was a simple habit of weighing myself each and every morning before taking a shower. Seeing a daily number appear helped me associate a connection between my

actions and my weight. While it may not be for everyone, it did help me remain aware and therefore motivated. And, it has remained a useful tool even as I slide further into middle-age. In a conversation with a younger friend recently, he was asking for tactics to begin his own path to age-appropriate fitness, but his ego dreaded the experience of knowing his starting number. I asked, “If you don’t know where you are, how can you ever hope to know how to get to where you want to be?” Why do we so mightily resist understanding where we are in our relationships, in our jobs, and with our health? If it is true that ignorance is bliss, why is it so often that the ignorant are the first victims of their own disinterest? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

You might have read last week that the United States Postal Service could be in for a major overhaul by 2022. U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said the move could make for a “21st-century postal service.” That’s fine, but shouldn’t the USPS become a 20th-century organization beforehand? The headlines: Door-to-door service for homes and businesses, as well as all Saturday deliveries (except for medicines) would be eliminated. Curbside and cluster-box deliveries, such as those most Current readers already have, would become the norm. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee (yes, we are laughing about that panel’s title; laugh with us) said the makeover would save $6.5 billion annually; that’s $4.5 billion for doorto-door and $2 billion for Saturday delivery. Actually, it’s a decent move if it means taxpayers won’t be on the hook for a massive bailout, but, as we all know, that remains to be seen. It makes good business sense to downsize, or “right-size,” the operation. After all, it’s a Titanic-like disaster now, and we all know it took only one captain to plink the iceberg and send that grand dame down. The wailing and gnashing of teeth you’re hearing, though, predictably is from the National Association of Letter Carriers (read: union), which claims such a reorganization would be tremendously harmful to small businesses, the elderly and folks living in regions with extreme weather. That’s a bunch of bunk. We’ll adapt, because there’ll be no other choice. Look, we’ve adapted to the decay of the postal service thus far, so shifting to following a streamlined version that doesn’t soak us for the tab shouldn’t be much of a problem. As much as we hate to admit it, the whole thing just makes too much sense. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC.

Lose ‘Lost’ and join the ‘Thrones’ Commentary by Danielle WIlson

My husband and I don’t watch much television. Apart from “Glee,” “Sports Center” and the occasional “30 Rock” rerun, humor we’re mostly too busy shuttling kids to and from their various practices, meetings and games. We also don’t subscribe to the movie channels, so aren’t able to catch the R-rated stuff like “Mad Men.” But this summer, we decided to plug in to pop culture, albeit a few years late, and download both the entire series of ABC’s “Lost” and the last three seasons of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Doo stayed up late for literally a week straight and finished the latter before I could even see the pilot. I got so angry with him that I made him wait to start “Lost” until we both had the time. We are now six episodes in to “Lost,” but frankly, I’m not “getting it.” I like looking at Matthew Fox and that Sawyer fellow, and the scenery is beautiful, but honestly, what’s the big deal? I’ve been told to hold out a few more episodes, that the plot thickens very shortly, but honestly, “Lost” pretty much sucks now that I’ve begun “Thrones.” Sweet. Mercy. Baby dragons, arctic zombies and creepy old warlocks. Gratuitous violence, full frontal nudity, and British-accented foul language. Is it any wonder that I am now completely addicted to this medieval fantasy epic? No kidding, I forgot to feed my children yester-

day. And the best part is that you never know who they’re going to kill off. Could be a character they’ve just introduced, could be the lead you’ve known since the beginning. It’s both horrible and awesome at the same time. I also appreciate how “Throne’s” writers (or possibly the author of the book it’s based on; I’m not sure how closely the series follows George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Fire and Ice”) have made the women the real powerhouses. Behind every king wannabe and knight in bloodied armor is a female mastermind, using her seductive wiles to manipulate, plot, and ultimately control the playing field. Sure the ladies are usually naked, but any smart viewer can recognize who’s ultimately in control. (You go, Khaleesi!) Plus, there is no shortage of amazing redheaded characters, saving the world per our usual M.O. and making it look good in the process. If you don’t watch “Game of Thrones,” I highly recommend downloading the first few episodes. You’ll probably be offended, disgusted and embarrassed, but if you are anything like me and appreciate stay-cations through television, you’ll also be incredibly entertained. Peace out.

Fur bearing thieves beware

Commentary by Mike Redmond

I grow a pretty good vegetable garden, if I do say so myself, and like any good gardener I am always happy to share humor the bounty. I always plant too much anyway, so it only makes sense that I offer what I have to friends and neighbors. Especially zucchini. I always plant too much zucchini. There is one group, however, with which I do not willingly share even so much as a green tomato. The members of this group are rude, demanding and annoying, and frequently just help themselves to whatever they want, to the fruits of my labor, without so much as a by-your-leave. I speak, of course, of squirrels. Those pushy little bushy-tailed rats are the bane of the urban gardener’s existence. Right now, they seem to be exceedingly fond of cucumbers. I planted a small plot this year, just enough for fresh cukes on the table and maybe a few bowls of quick pickles. Well, the squirrels are putting my cucumber plans asunder. If I leave cukes on the vine to get a little size, eight inches or so, they wind up with big holes gnawed in them. And occasionally the smaller ones, the three or four-inch ones, wind up on Mister Squirrel’s salad plate as well. You’d think they had little bottles of ranch dressing up in the trees. It’s not that I can’t tolerate a little loss. Any gardener worth his fertilizer knows that you’re

going to incur some loss to weather and pests. But outright theft is another matter entirely. Last year, during the drought, I was a little more inclined to be charitable toward our furbearing neighbors. They were raiding the tomatoes then in a desperate search for water and, being a soft-hearted type, I was willing to go along with it. I didn’t even yell (much) when they all but denuded my one and only vine of Russian Krims, my favorite tomato. I figured I could always go to a farmer’s market to buy some heirlooms but squirrels don’t have that option. No pockets to carry money, you see. This year, though, when it rains every day for weeks, there is no drought and to my mind, no reason for them to plead thirst when raiding my vegetables. Thieves, that’s all they are – little fur-bearing thieves. Of course, it could be said that by planting a garden I have created what the lawyers call an attractive nuisance, which is the long way of saying I created my own problem, and the squirrels were unable to resist. I’m willing to consider that up to the point where the Russian Krims are involved. Then it’s nuisance, shmuisance, stay out of my tomatoes. And my cukes.

Indy Jazz Fest swings into Conner Prairie By Mark Johnson • mark@youarecurrent.com On Friday, Aug. 2 and Saturday, Aug. 3, the Indianapolis Symphony will feature a first for the Marsh Symconner praire phony on the Prairie series. Jazz will be the featured music when Indy Jazz Fest will present “A Salute to Indiana Composers” on the Conner Prairie Amphitheatre stage at 8 p.m. Some of the finest musicians and singers in the state will take to the stage to pay tribute to great composers of Indiana such as Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Michael Jackson, as well as jazz titans Freddie Hubbard and Wes Montgomery. This will mark the first time in the 32-year history of Symphony on the Prairie that jazz will be the headliner of the series. For a city that is as rich in jazz history as Indianapolis, it is hard to imagine that jazz has only now found its way onto that stage. So, why has it taken 32 years for the ISO to bring jazz to the series? ISO Director of Communications Jessica Di Santo had the same question in mind. “I wondered how we could have missed jazz,” she said. “For the last 32 years, we have had all genres of music, but not the tried and true genre of jazz. Jazz just seemed like such a natural fit. It’s a common language. Jazz is familiar, friendly, and open. Jazz can inspire. Seeing so many young people there, some of them experi-

encing jazz for the first time is truly amazing.” Di Santo also gave credit to Indy Jazz Fest Director David Allee for organizing the concert. Allee, himself an accomplished jazz trumpeter, is also the owner and operator of the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis. “He has been wonderful,” Di Santo said. “He has done so much as the creator and the producer of the event. He has really organized it for

us. We have a slate of the very best talent in this genre of music.” The gates to the amphitheater will open at 6 p.m. each evening. Tickets are priced at $23 in advance and $28 at the gate for adults, $12 for children ages 2-12 in advance and $14 at the gate. For more information on Symphony on the Prairie including ticket and parking pass information, visit www.indianapolissymphony.org.

The inaugural Noblesville Fit Fest is being presented by Gordon Insurance and staged by America Multi-Sport. “This unique festival and race event combination promises to be a boon to the entire Hamilton County community with the goals of encouraging our friends and neighbors to adopt a healthier lifestyle,” Fit Fest Coordinator Kym Flannery said. Fit Fest events, which are USAT sanctioned events, include a Sprint Triathlon (400 yard swim, 20.6K bike and 5K run), Sprint Duathlon (1K run, 20.6K bike and 5K run), Sprint Aquabike (400 meter swim and 20.5K bike), 5K Run/Walk (3.1 Miles), Kids Aquathon (ages 4-6, 7-11 and 12-14), and a Sprint Aquathon (400m swim and 5k run).

Flannery said the races have something no other Triathlon event she’s heard of offers: a “Kids Corral” featuring licensed teachers from the Goddard School of Noblesville providing age appropriate activities for children ages three and up. “Put one foot in front of the other and make a

difference,” Rebecca Gordon of Gordon Insurance said. Each event has a fee and Gordon said all proceeds will be donated to the Riverview Hospital Foundation. “We all live here and if we ever end up there, I want to know they have what they need,” Gordon said. “We’re so excited the Gordon family is dedicated to continuing to support and be philanthropic to Riverview,” Trish Oman, Riverview Hospital Foundation director, said. “Fit Fest ties in very nicely. The hospital is about wellness and keeping people healthy and fit.” When the athletes get to the finish line, they and their families can enjoy a family-friendly, fitness-oriented festival featuring a “Vendor Village.” In addition to the healthy food, beverage, product and service offerings, guests can check out the “How To” stage sponsored by Sparta where the curious can observe and try out all manner of fitness activities.

Question from John L. from Noblesville: I currently get health insurance for my family through my employer. I Insurance know changes are coming from health reform, but is there anything particular that I need to worry about? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Health reform has a lot of folks concerned and confused. The main piece of the legislation that will affect nearly everyone is the individual mandate that requires you to buy health insurance. If you like the insurance that your employer provides, you are considered covered and can stick with that program. You may also be able to switch to publicly available coverage eventually if you choose, but all that is still being figured out. Any employer health plan you currently have qualifies as minimum essential coverage. You don’t need to change to a publicly available plan to avoid the fee that uninsured people may have to pay in 2014. If you’d like to explore publicly available coverage options, you can, but there are several important things to consider. With most employer health insurance plans, your employer pays a portion of your premiums. Your employer does not need to make a contribu-

tion to your premiums if you switch away from their plan. You should consider this carefully before comparing your current plan to publicly available plans. If you decide to check out publicly available plans, be aware that you may not qualify for lower costs on your monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs, even if your income would qualify you otherwise. Whether you qualify for lower costs will depend on what kind of coverage your employer offers. If your job-based coverage is considered affordable and meets minimum value, you won’t be able to get lower costs on premiums or outof-pocket costs in the marketplace. This is true no matter your income and family size. Your employer can tell you whether the insurance plan it offers meets minimum value and help you determine whether the plan is considered affordable for you. You can also contact your independent insurance agent if you have further questions or if you lose your employer’s insurance plan and need to see what is available. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services. Have an insurance question you need answered? Send it to asktheadvisor@shepherdins.com.

The ‘good-to-great’ plan

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com In January, Victor Smith was appointed as Indiana Secretary of Commerce following a 17-year career of operations, sales chamber and executive positions, including chief executive officer of a precision manufacturing company with locations in the United States, United Kingdom and Asia. On July 24, Smith addressed the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce to discuss what he was doing at the state level to ensure the business climate remains well for the state and Hamilton County. “Gov. (Mike) Pence made my goal clear – to get more Hoosiers working than any other time in the history of our state,” Smith said. “The watermark is 2,609,000.” In his role, Smith is a member of Gov. Pence’s cabinet and leads the state’s domestic and international economic development agenda. In his first six months on the job, Smith said he’s been doing a lot of traveling, listening and thought processing. The strategy is going from good to great. “We had a good foundation. Gov. (Mitch) Daniels did a fabulous job with a responsible fiscal philosophy,” he said. “I’m really excited about what’s going to be happening in the next two years. It’s the largest tax reduction in the history of Indiana.” Smith said Indiana is growing traction and notoriety within the country.

“We were ranked No. 1 in the Midwest for doing business and No. 2 in one poll and No. 5 overall in another,” he said, adding the state is joined by Texas, Florida, North Carolina and Tennessee as the best business climates in the nation. Smith said 70 percent of new jobs in Indiana come from incumbent companies. The four pillars of Indiana economic development and jobs are manufacturing, agriculture, logistics and life sciences. “It starts out with the product we sell. The product we sell is Indiana. We’re keeping business costs to a minimum, have low operating costs, and businesses are confident taxes won’t creep up… It’s because of our fiscal discipline, we’re a right to work state and low taxes-pro business stance.”

SMC seeks tax breaks again

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com SMC Corp. is requesting a 10-year personal property tax phase-in from the Noblesville Common Council for the increase finance of assessed valuation resulting from the installation of new equipment into the existing facility at 10100 SMC Blvd. SMC is proposing to purchase and install approximately $3,100,768 worth of new equipment to expand its production and distribution capabilities. “With this equipment, not only will we be delivering products but designing more products for North American markets,” SMC’s Chad Bosler said. The terms of the tax phase-in allow SMC to gradually pay taxes on its new equipment. In the first year, no money is collected. The phase-in gradually increases from $5,210 in the second year to $25,120 in the 10th and final year. Noblesville will collect $130,812 during the 10-year phase-in. SMC will save $194,768 in property taxes with the phase-in. Hours upon hours – On average, how many hours does a worker in the United States work annually? 1,798. Workers in Mexico, on average, work 519 more hours annually. – www.money.cnn.com

Noblesville Economic Development Director Judi Johnson said SMC has not only made monetary investments in the city but community investments with internships for Noblesville High School students, public events, the interest from other companies to locate in Noblesville and the use of their testimonial for global marketing of the city. SMC, a global pneumatic technology developer and manufacturer, moved its headquarters to Noblesville in 2008. Since then, the company has made a capital investment of $67.4 million and expanded from 458 employees to 681. Johnson said the company expects to increase its employees to 773 by 2017. SMC completed its $19-million expansion last year in Noblesville and now has 1.329 million square feet of building space on its 195 acre campus. “SMC has been a staggering success for the City of Noblesville,” Council President Roy Johnson said. If approved at the Aug. 13 council meeting, it would be the fifth tax abatement SMC has received. Johnson said no other Noblesville business currently has more than two abatements.

The birthplace of Christianity? Commentary by Don Knebel

A small cave in the mountainside above the city of Antakya in southern Turkey may well be the oldest church in the world, Travel dating to the earliest days of Christianity. It was also in or near this cave that early Christians argued over a matter that proved crucial to the ultimate success of Christianity. In the first century, Antakya, then known as Antioch, was the third largest city in the world. According to the Bible, Paul and Barnabas spent a year in Antioch recruiting new followers of Jesus, where those followers were first called “Christians.� Exactly where in Antioch those early Christians may have met is impossible to determine, but a natural cave on the side of Mount Starius has long been thought to be that place. Not everything in the cave goes back to the time of Paul and Barnabas. But a watery hole in the cave floor long used for baptisms may have existed in the first century and a narrow passage to the outside might have been used by early Christians to escape the Romans. While in Antioch, Paul taught that circumcision was not necessary for Gentiles who wanted to

follow Jesus. James, the brother of Jesus and the leader of the church in Jerusalem, disagreed and sent a delegation to Antioch to try to convince Paul that he was wrong. Paul eventually won the argument. With the requirement of circumcision no longer an impediment to gaining non-Jewish followers, Paul set off from Antioch on the missionary journeys that eventually spread Christianity to the far reaches of the Roman Empire. Roman Catholics have identified Peter as the first bishop of Antioch, which became an important city in the early church. So the cave church in Antioch, although founded by Paul and Barnabas, is now named for Peter. Many sites traditionally associated with early events in Christian history are suspect at best. But the cave in Antakya has sufficient indicia of authenticity that it may legitimately be considered the place where Paul broke Christianity away from its Jewish moorings to become a religion of the Gentiles.

MAKEUP FOR TEENS Most young women are obsessed with makeup but they often don’t have the knowledge or confidence to make it work. Teens love trying trendy colors and textures, but a fresh, young face should never be smothered in makeup. Teens should skip an all over foundation. Cover blemishes with a blemish stick and then dab on powder in the oily T-zone, but avoid slathering on a heavy, liquid foundation. Makeup should also not be used to look older. This can result in an unnatural, harsh look. Keeping colors light and sheer will ensure the fresh, youthful glow still shines through. Trick of the Trade: To avoid drawing attention to braces, skip bright lip colors! Stick to a tinted lip balm or sheer gloss.

Maybe you always wondered… Commentary by David Decker

Q. How often should I water my lawn? A. Generally, twice a week unless we are receiving regular rain. outdoors Overwatering promotes a weak, topical root system that can’t respond to prolonged droughts without wasteful daily watering. Q. Is there a secret to controlling weed growth in paver patios? A. No secret, but it can be very annoying. Polymeric sand in the joints of the patio material helps considerably. Beyond that, arm yourself with your favorite herbicide and spray upon first sight. The majority of weed growth is caused by weed seed blowing in from your neighbors lawn or happy birds dropping presents. Q. Should I seal my new patio to protect it? A. Concrete and stamped concrete need sealing immediately after installation. Most pavers and natural stone do not require sealing, although a satin finish sealer can prompt the colors to pop. Q. What’s the difference between a brick versus a paver patio? A. Spelling only. We use the brick/paver as generic terminology, although officially a brick refers to the material used to face a home, which is not suitable for a patio surface. Q. Is there a standard for design fees? A. I wish. We see design fees from complimentary to more than $100 per hour. As usual, the

dispatches Goodbye grubs – Grubs can be frustrating lawn pests, and there are a few simple tricks you can use to deter them from wrecking your yard. According to Chris Lemcke, technical director at Weed Man, sprinkle animal fur, hair or cayenne pepper throughout the yard to ward them, and other critters like raccoons and skunks, off. – www.living.msn.com

Midwest follows the lead of Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, etc. which have been confidently charging design fees for years, as our company does. Q. Any easy tips to transform my stale outdoor living space without ripping out everything? A. Retrofitting is a great strategy that encourages us to tweak your present patio material and upgrade the landscape. Adding dramatic flowering pots and updated colorful furniture is invaluable. Never underestimate the value of a new outdoor rug or colorful cantilever umbrella. Enjoy the summer!

Lawnmower be gone – Pushing around a lawnmower all day can get tiresome and boring. Opt for a clover or other grass blend for your lawn, and you won’t have to mow quite as often, because they don’t reach the same heights as regular grass. – www.goodhousekeeping.com In a pinch – So you forgot to pick up a new grill brush before your grilling extravaganza. Author and pro at the grill Elizabeth Karmel has an easy fix. Wad up a ball of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Make it so it’s about the size of navel orange and use locking chef tongs as handles to complete your homemade grill brush. – www.bhg.com

Granite and quartz are both good decorating options but for different reasons. (Submitted photo)

Going with granite and quartz Commentary by David Decker

One of the most frequently asked questions we get asked at the Affordable Companies is whether a homeowner indoors should choose granite or quartz for their home improvement project. So what is the difference between the two materials? Granite is a naturally occurring material that is mined from the earth in large pieces, but later broken down into slabs. These granite slabs are then treated to a fine polish using a polyurethane sealer or resin. Each piece of granite is 100-percent unique. The color, grain and overall look of the stone will vary from slab to slab, even if they have been mined from the same quarry. The key to granite’s enduring popularity is its durability. If you keep your granite properly cleaned and sealed, spills and stains should not be an issue. Quartz, on the other hand, is engineered from a combination of stone, composites and resins. Like granite, quartz is a naturally occurring stone element. But because quartz products are partially manufactured, they have the ability to look much more uniform than granite. One of the biggest benefits would be the low maintenance factor. Quartz is nonporous, which means it will not absorb water and microbes. Additionally, it will not require sealing/re-sealing, which will save you time and money.

So now, with all of this background information on the two different types of stones, how do you go about choosing one that’s right for your specific project? The ideal stone choice will vary depending on usage and environmental factors. Here are some things to keep in mind: • Granite is more heat resistant than quartz. So you may want to select granite for kitchen countertops, if you are planning on setting hot pans directly on the stone. • Because quartz does not need to be sealed and is nonporous, you may want to choose it for shower ledges, bathroom vanities or sink backsplashes. • Quartz is a bit more scratch resistant than granite. This makes it a better fit for bar ledges or other high traffic areas that may be prone to damage. • Because granite has natural variation, be careful to select material appropriately. All in all, both granite and quartz countertops are going to add value to your home. They will both bring a polished, natural and impressive look to any space. The decision comes down to your personal preference and the needs of your specific space.
