By Robert Herrington • Hamilton County Kids Sale organizers said this year’s three-day event will be “more than just a sale.” Owner Lori Chandler coming soon estimates 2,500 shoppers will attend this year’s Hamilton County Kids Sale on Sept. 12 through 14 at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds, 2003 E. Pleasant St., Noblesville. Chandler said the sale began in 2005 with 15 consigners in the front yard of a Carmel home. After years of a steady increase of sellers, the event now combines about 300 consigners. “The last couple of years we’ve capped it. Once we hit 300 we close registration,” she said. “I enjoy knowing my sellers.” Chandler said the sale includes “anything you would need for kids,” including clothes for newborns to teens, maternity wear for expecting mothers, toys and equipment like strollers, high chairs and bounce seats. “Items began at $1 and go to anything. Clothes are typically $2 to $6,” she said. “You can really shop and see 75 to 90 percent off retail prices.” More than 50,000 items will be jammed in the 16,000 square feet of exhibition hall space at the 4-H Fairgrounds. Chandler said instead of visiting booth after booth, sellers bring their items, use the online tagging system and put a price on each item. Workers then organizer all items by size and gender for clothes or genre for toys and equipment. “It’s so much easier. You don’t have to rifle through everything like at a garage sale,” Chandler said. “It’s the only place I buy my kids’ stuff.” Before items are placed in its particular section, they are checked by workers. “Are clothes in good quality or current style? If it requires batteries, are batteries in them? Everything

is screened by us to make sure it is in good quality,” Chandler said. Chandler said this year will incorporate new events like car seat checks, giveaways and character visits from Mickey, Minnie and Elmo on Sept. 12 and 13 to entertain children accompanying adults. On Sept. 14, the sale is partnering with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office touch-a-truck event to raise money for Project Lifesaver, an organization that helps protect children and adults with Down Syndrome, Autism, and Alzheimer’s/dementia and/or other cognitive conditions. “We’re real excited about the new events,” Chandler said. The sale is 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 12, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 13 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 14.Those who bring diapers or diaper wipes to donate to Good Samaritan Network will be allowed to enter half an hour before the event opens to the public on Sept. 12. The event does not charge an admission fee. Chandler said items can be purchased with cash, MasterCard or Visa.

Vote stalemate – The Hamilton County Council had to continue a motion to approve funding for Ivy Tech after a 3-3 vote on Sept. 4. Council member Steve Schwartz of Noblesville, who previously voted in favor of all Ivy Tech matters before the council, was absent from the meeting. Council members Brad Beaver, Jim Belden and Meredith Carter voted in favor of the interlocal agreement for an Ivy Tech campus in Hamilton County. Council members Paul Ayers, Amy Massillamany and Rick McKinney voted against it. The agreement requires a $11.9 million bond over 20 years by the county and a $3 million payment by the City of Noblesville. Attorney Michael Howard said the county plans to close on the building with Noblesville Schools by the end of the year. He said the district would then lease back the building for the remaining 2013-2014 school year at the interest costs. Ivy Tech would then take over the building next summer. The decision on the bond will be tabled to the council’s next meeting at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 11.



DISPATCHES Migration station – Stroll the White River Greenway Trail at Potter’s Bridge Park, 19401 N. Allisonville Rd., while looking for birds at 4 p.m. Sept. 14. Water attracts birds all year, but fall migration is an especially great time to be along the river looking for birds. Binoculars will be helpful, but if you don’t have them the Hamilton County Parks Dept. will have some to borrow. If the birding is slow, park officials will talk about native plants that birds depend on. Bird watchers will meet in front of Potter’s Bridge. Going… going… gone – The City of Noblesville will be holding an auction of surplus items on Sept. 14 at the street department, 1575 Pleasant St. Doors will open at 8 a.m. and the auction will begin at 9 a.m. This auction is cash only and all items are sold as is.

Center Stage Vintage Guitars’ Kevin Heffernan repairs, sells and builds unique stringed instruments By Robert Herrington • As with every musician, Kevin Heffernan still can recall that moment when a song changed his life. For him it was Ten Years After’s “I’m Going Home” from Woodstock. cover story “That’s when I learned to play the guitar. Alvin Lee is unbelievable,” he said, adding he started playing the guitar at age 14. “I loved it and never stopped.” Heffernan’s love of music started at an earlier age. When he was 5 years old, he enjoyed visiting his aunt and uncle’s home and playing their piano. “My eyes were level with the keys,” he said. “I learned to Heffernan play by ear and thought ‘there’s something to this.’” Heffernan has played in bands that perform blues, rockabilly, bluegrass and even Texas Swing. He can play the guitar, mandolin, banjo, upright bass and lap steel. “I get bored with one particular instrument. I’m not ‘killing it’ on any of them but I can play them all,” he said. Heffernan’s love of music led to a successful career of restoring and building custom guitars. Like Noblesville native Steve Wariner, Heffernan has roots that lead to Nashville – his just started with a chance meeting following a vacation in Florida. After touring Gruhns Guitar Store in Nashville, Heffernan asked where the best guitar players perform and then headed to Robert’s where he met Don Kelley, front man of one of the longest running bands in Music City. “I walked in and was blown away,” he said. Two months later Heffernan returned to Nashville with three custom-built guitars. “I went down and knocked on doors and made some really, really good friends,” he said. “If they like you down there they’ll do anything for you. If they don’t like you, they’ll slam the door in your face. They’re very humble – great, great people.” Once he got connected to the music scene, his business started to climb. Heffernan has built instruments for guitar players with Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, Earl Scruggs, Wariner, John Michael Montgomery, Carrie Underwood, Brenda Lee, Garth Brooks, Patty Loveless, Lyle Lovette, Dixie Chicks, Sarah Bareillis, Saturday Night Live band and A Prairie Home Companion. “I don’t listen to country music at all,” Heffernan said, “which is good because you’re not star

Center Stage Vintage Guitars is at 998 S. 10th St. It is open noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and is closed Sunday.

struck. If you don’t know who they are, it doesn’t matter who they are.” When he’s not assisting Heffernan in the store, Seth Catron, 30, of Indianapolis plays with his custom-built guitar in The Twin Cats with his twin brother and drummer, Adam. “It’s always neat to hear the stories that go with the instruments,” Catron, who is engaged to Heffernan’s daughter, Shannon, said. “We’re taking people’s babies. They put a lot of trust into you.” Catron said he enjoys seeing what comes into the store, what they work on and especially how it was made. “Building techniques have changed a lot the last 100 years.

That’s what’s cool about guitars; they are all unique.” Heffernan opened Center Stage Vintage Guitars, 998 S. 10th St., on June 8.

Minimum wager It is our position that fast food workers striking in favor of wage increases should take an Economics 101 class. According to a Ball State University study released in April, Indiana’s average personal income lags more than a decade behind the income levels enjoyed by the nation as a whole. So why shouldn’t minimum wage workers protest for higher wages? Protesting is certainly within their first amendment rights. Is it within their right to request a $15 an hour wage for cashier and fry cook positions once considered feeder jobs into the world of paid employment for teenagers and those who chose not to pursue higher education? Granted, dealing with the public requires a great deal of patience and keeping up with the quick pace of restaurant life can be exhausting. However, the very virtues such as low cost meals that motivate the hurried, hungry public to take a spin through the drive-thru on their way home from work would soon disappear if employers nearly doubled the wages of its restaurant staff. Perhaps the protesters are waging their own plight for higher wages on behalf of all underpaid hourly workers regardless if the task is flipping burgers or emptying bedpans. Someone deserves a break – the question is, just who?

Where books really count Commentary by Terry Anker A week from today, the Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation will host a roundtable discussion moderated by Inside Indiana Business host and founder, Gerry Dick, on the matter of the role of libraries in entrepreneurship and business success. Along with Matt Frey, owner of Bub’s Burgers & Ice Cream and Bub’s Café, Mickey Maurer, chairman of IBJ Media Corp., IBJ columnist, and author of “10 Essential Principles of Entrepreneurship You Never Learned in School,” and Mo Merhoff, Carmel Chamber of Commerce president, I will answer questions and posit thoughts on the role of a library in modern times. It is likely to come as no surprise that I am counted among the believers in the role of the humanities to help us understand and cling to one another in spite (or perhaps because) of the dehumanizing tumult that surrounds us almost everywhere in almost every way. There is nothing that brings us closer to empathy for the life of another more than literature. In the fear

of Anne Frank, the adventure of Jack London’s Buck and the tragedy of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, we are able to find new perspective. But libraries do far more. They provide access to thinking – and to thinkers. In a world wide web, they are a crucial entrée, at once rousing a thirst for knowledge and quenching it. Once imagined to be piles of dusty old books, modern libraries, through a myriad of programs, are intended to inspire, inform and initiate. Join us from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Sept. 17 in the Program Room at the Carmel Clay Public Library, 4th Ave. SE, Carmel. Call the Foundation Office at 8143905 for more info. Registration is not required for the free event. Besides, they provide the bagels and coffee and how can that not be a good thing?! Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

It’s nearly that time of year again. The Carmel International Arts Festival, entering its 16th year, will run Sept. 28 and 29 in the Arts & Design District. This is an event for everyone, and dare we state here, well worth your time. Current is proud to be sponsoring it for the sixth year, and we’re eager, as many of you are, to see what Executive Director Rosemary Waters and her team of volunteers has cooked up for attendees. Long ago, this transitioned from a “just Carmel event” to one for the entire region - if not multiple states beyond. We know from our independent marketplace research that the arts – all of them – are of strong interest to our readership, and it is for that reason that we’re bringing the festival to your attention. There will be more than 125 juried artists displaying wares in watercolor, oil, 2D, jewelry, photography, 3D, wood, sculpture and pottery, among other mediums. It’s high-end work by scores of professionals – and, thankfully, you won’t find sand art or finger-painting works, although there will be activities for “young artists.” This festival has been and still is free to attend, and last year more than 30,000 folks partook of the exhibits, shopping and diverse entertainment. There is plenty of free parking, notably in the parking garage at the Indiana Design Center, one and a half blocks south of the festival on South Range Line Road, and at Carmel High School, from which a shuttle will operate. In addition, visitors may park at Old Town Shoppes, Main Street and Range Line Road, or at the Lions Club lot just east of Range Line Road on the south side of Main Street. Truly, this event has something for everybody. Please mark your calendars and plan to take in this phenomenal event.

Crying over the Caravan

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

I may have an unhealthy relationship with my automobile. My husband called yesterday to tell me that he had run Mini-Van humor by Car Max, and that if they had offered him just a few hundred dollars more, he would have sold her on the spot. I almost started crying. Crying! Over a car. What’s the matter with me? She is, after all, a 2006 Dodge Caravan with no working A/C, side doors, or cup holders. She surpassed 100,000 miles this summer on a road trip that required a trip to Clark Tire to fix what we thought was a busted transmission, but turned out to be just a leaky water pump. She has a large dent on the driver’s side door courtesy of our stupid garage, which rudely attacked me two Octobers ago as I was pulling in. Perhaps you’ve seen me driving about town with a magnetic band-aid covering the “boo-boo”? The point is she’s a piece of crap, and I should be excited about getting rid of her rather than weepy at the thought of selling her off for death by dis-part-ment. But here’s the thing. We’ve been through a lot together, Mini-Van and I. I’ve driven her to two NCAA Final Fours, decorating her with enough red and black paint to embarrass my teenager and make seeing out the windows slightly challenging. She’s hauled my family all over the state of Indiana, to the Rocky Mountains and the Atlan-



Glow in the Park

tic Ocean, and enough times on the I-65 corridor from Chicago to Montgomery that we know exactly which gas stations to avoid for their unsanitary bathrooms. This is also the car that made one of the most memorable ER runs in Wilson family history [see Archives, May 12, 2009, for a thrilling account]. On a smaller scale, my kids have probably spent more time in this van than in any other vehicle apart from her predecessor, Big Red, may she rest in peace. Carpooling to soccer, swimming, volleyball, cross country, gymnastics, dance, tennis, track, hurling (not really, just wanted to see if you were paying attention) and basketball has filled a big portion of their day-to-day lives. Honestly, they’ve spilled more milk, soda and Gatorade in Mini-Van than they have at our kitchen table, attestable by the slight smell of rot that emanates from the cloth-interior on especially hot days. Mini-Van is not just our mode of transportation. She is our historian. Every stain, scratch and unidentifiable food glob tells a story of my family. So, yeah, when I finally have to part with her, I’m going to bawl like a little girl. Maybe it’s unhealthy, but it’s the way I feel. I love you, MiniVan! Peace out.

The coolest backyard ever – Natural Light Patio Covers There’s nowhere anyone would rather be on a beautiful summer day than the backyard deck, in a comfortable chair, sipping a cool drink. And yet, this idyllic scenario can so easily be spoiled if the sun is too hot and too direct. There are dozens of solutions to block the sun, but nothing is as effective or rewarding as a Natural Light Patio Cover. Imbued with almost magical qualities, the covers block all U.V. rays and 75 per cent of infrared rays, while letting through most of the light. The result is a cool setting that is still filled with natural light. There isn’t a giant solid awning casting a shadow not only on the deck but on the room behind the adjacent windows. There isn’t a large umbrella that has to be folded down every time the wind picks up. And there isn’t a retractable sunshade that has to be cranked into position every time someone wants to sit outside. Natural Light Patio Covers use Acrylite panels to filter out heat and U.V. while letting the light shine through, to create the perfect patio atmosphere. They can be attached to homes to cover decks and patios, or built as stand-alone covers detached entirely from the house.

They are permanent structures, engineered specifically for the Indianapolis climate to take the wind and snow without buckling or showing signs of wear. The see-through panels do not discolour or show any effect from U.V. rays. In short, they are the perfect way to ensure your backyard experience is ideal all spring, summer and fall for many years to come. “We can even build enclosures to create three-season rooms,” says Cory Clapper, the Indianapolis sale consultant of the covers. “People have all sorts of uses for this technology,” he says. “We can build almost any kind of structure to fit in with a backyard plan.” The Acrylite comes in two-foot wide panels that can be as long as 24 feet. Glazing bars between them provide structural support and can be formed into a single slope or cathedralstyle ceiling. “When you look up through the panels, they are a sky blue colour,” Clapper says. “It’s like you’re looking at the sky.” The aluminum structure itself comes in four colours and all Patio Covers include eaves troughs just like the roof of a house.

“The manufacturer guarantees the engineering of the panels, which are made in Germany, for 30 years not to fade or discolour, and has a 10 year warranty against hail damage,” Clapper says. “So, people can expect their covers to last 30 years or more. It’s a quality product.” The structures are not inexpensive, but Clapper uses an integrity pricing system that keeps costs as low as possible. He provides free estimates and plans to run several open houses in London this summer, inviting interested homeowners to tour houses where he has installed a Patio Cover already.“When people see them and feel how cool they are standing there in the bright sunlight, they are amazed,” he says. The company’s website features several options and configurations and as well as testimonials from happy customers who are already enjoying their Natural Light Patio Cover this summer.

Milestone musicals, shows delight B&B season

By Nancy Edwards •

Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre will mark its 41st season in 2014 with four acclaimed musicals celebrating milestone antheatre niversaries. The theatre will also introduce a new musical, the fourth in a hilarious series of mishaps by recurrent, endearing characters that audiences have grown to love. Based on the books “Growing Up Lutheran,” and “Those Lutheran Ladies,” the latest musical, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our Basement,” is part of the “Church Basement Ladies” series, which follows the lives of several unique women who cook dinner for special events in the basement of their rural church. Eddie Curry, artistic director, casting director and actor for Beef & Boards, explained that this musical series is so popular because audiences can relate to the characters that remind them of church members they already know. “Especially the older folks who went to rural churches,” Curry said. “They gathered in the church for potluck dinners and whatnot.” Curry, who plays Pastor Gunderson in the series, said that characters like Mavis, a church lady whose husband loses yet another finger from a farming accident, keep attendees coming back for the next sequel in the series because they want to know what happens next for the character. “A Mighty Fortress Is Our Basement” is a reminiscent tale about memories from the church, as the property is about to be sold. “A lot of the fourth (series) is about the same characters remembering church activities throughout the year. People are coming back to the church for a final service,” Curry said. Another warm musical being shown for the first time at Beef & Boards next year has actually been a family favorite for generations. “Mary Poppins,” the story of a delightful nanny with a lot of wisdom and a little magic who teaches a family how to value one another again. The musical is part of the featured family show for the 2014 Season, which means the show has a special $10 discount for tickets for youth ages 3-15, according to Patricia Rettig, director of marketing and media relations. “The discount makes it easier to enjoy an outing together as a family,” she said. Other beloved musicals returning to Beef & Boards include “Oklahoma!” the first collaboration of Rodgers & Hammerstein. “You don’t get any more of an all-American musical than Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! It has been the foundation for Beef & Boards’ continued success, as it was the first show presented by our owner, Doug Stark,

T H I S  W E E K Always Patsy Cline – The Actors Theatre of Indiana will present this true tale of friendship is told through the letters CARMEL of Louise Segar, a devoted fan who befriended Patsy Cline at a Texas honky-tonk, on Thursday through Sunday from Sept. 13 through 29 at The Center for the Performing Arts.

when he first purchased the theatre with his business partner in 1980. It established the Broadway musical format which we still have today,” Rettig said. Those musicals celebrating anniversaries from their very first debut on stage include, “Lend Me A Tenor” and “Cats” at 25 years, “Fiddler on the Roof” with 50 years under its belt, and one of the longest-running shows, “Anything Goes,” which premiered 80 years ago. “Beef & Boards is one of only seven professional, Equity, year-round dinner theatres in the country, and it’s still going strong after 40 years,” Rettig said. “That’s a testament to the support this area provides to the performing arts. We are grateful for that support, and hope to continue to entertain for many years to come.” Currently playing at Beef & Boards is “Father of the Bride,” which many will recognize from the Spencer Tracy and Steve Martin films. It runs through Sept. 29. Visit for a calendar and show times. For questions or more information, please contact Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre at 872-9644 or www.

Birds of a feather flock together Commentary by Joe Drozda with Bob Bley It’s often said that birds of a feather flock together. This statement, credited to William Turner, a 16th century English naturalist, has become more than a mere observation. If redefined for tailgaters, means that people are more comfortable tailgating with others of similar socio-economic characteristics. Just look at a typical college stadium parking lot before a football game and you’ll see the natural groupings of tailgaters. Students will be obvious in certain areas, the alumni who donate to the school in other areas and the general public, who also appear to seek out friends to park besides. All will work well for tailgaters if Turner’s proverb is understood and its wisdom followed. Some tailgaters like to sit together quietly, drink in hand, and converse about what’s happened since they last met. Some gourmands feel the necessity to prepare huge quantities of food to amaze guests, neighbors, and the inevitable onlookers wandering through the festivities. Some people are not happy unless they have huge, ear-pounding, speakers blasting out music that appeals to no one but themselves. The ironic thing is that each group creates its own ambi-

ance and as long as they “flock together, no one ruffles a feather.” Here’s a great recipe submitted by Purdue University graduate Mary Ellen C. Van Buskirk. DEVILED EGGS Ingredients: one dozen large eggs, mayonnaise, horseradish mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt/pepper, black olives Preparation: Boil, cool, and peel the eggs. (Be advised that there are different schools of thought on how to hard boil eggs for the perfect deviled egg.) Cut the eggs in half lengthways and remove the yolks to a bowl. Place the whites on a tray and cool. Mash the yolks with a fork, adding mayo, mustard, and Worcestershire till the mixture gets soft like icing. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can add more horseradish, mustard, or Worcestershire sauce to suite your taste. Use a pastry tube to fill the whites with your mixture. For an accent, you can garnish each egg with a slice of black olive. (Get it? Black and Gold)

Men get varicose veins, too

Commentary by Jeffery Schoonover

As many as 45 percent of all men will experience varicose veins at some point in their lives. The number one cause of aesthetics varicose veins in both men and women is family history. If your mom or grandmother had varicose veins, you are more likely to have them. Lifestyle factors play a significant role as well. If your job requires you to stand for long periods, such as medical professionals, factory workers, sales or restaurant occupations, you are more likely to get varicose veins. If you travel and spend long hours flying or driving, or if you sit at a desk for several hours at a time, you are at risk as well. Varicose veins can even be the result of previous leg trauma. Varicose veins can affect men of all ages but the risk increases with age because of the loss of tissue tone and muscle mass, as well as a weakening of the venous walls. If restless legs keep you awake at night, this could be a sign that you have varicose veins. If you don’t enjoy taking a walk with your wife or playing with the kids or grandkids like you used to because of leg pain, that could be another sign. Generally men have the same symptoms as women: pain, leg heaviness, tiredness, muscle cramps and swelling. But, as men, we are less likely to seek medical treatment. It is important that you seek consultation if you are experienc-

ing any of these symptoms. Like any chronic medical condition, varicose veins will progress without treatment. Because varicose veins are often painful, it is important to treat them in order to maintain an active lifestyle. Treatments such as medical grade compression stockings and changes in work habits can improve your symptoms but will not address the underlying cause. Severe varicose veins can lead to serious complications such as skin breakdown and even blood clots. The treatments available for men as exactly the same as for women and just as effective. Men can undergo ultrasound guided endovenous laser treatment , or EVLT. This cutting-edge laser procedure involves inserting a small laser fiber through the skin into the varicosed vein. Laser energy is delivered inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. Once that vein is closed, the blood reroutes to other healthy veins. Some men may need sclerotherapy following EVLT. The good news is that most patients are able to return to work almost immediately following treatment and eventually can resume those activities you have been avoiding. Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D., FAAFP, RVT, RPVI, practices with the Indiana Vein Specialists, 11876 Olio Road, Suite 700, Fishers. He can be reached at 348-3023. For more information, visit

Riverview unveils new services

Everyone has heard that “time heals all wounds,” but evidence-based medicine indicates that without advanced interdisciplinary therapies, some wounds can take months or even years to heal. To help combat this issue, Riverview Hospital is expanding its Wound Care services to include innovative therapies that can help people with complex wounds heal faster. “By adding new technologies, we’re able to deliver more comprehensive wound care to our patients,” said Lisa Needler Young, Rvierview’s director of Wound Care services. “And now we can provide these services in an environment that’s much closer to home, making it easier and more convenient for people.” The expanded Wound Care program at Riverview Hospital, which opened Sept. 3, houses two chambers for hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This treatment works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen at higher-than-normal

atmospheric pressure. This increases the amount of oxygen in the patient’s blood, allowing red blood cells to pass more easily through the plasma to help heal a wound from the inside out. Patients can relax on a bed encased with a large, see-through plastic shell, and watch movies or talk with others through a speaker system. The only physical sensation is a slight pressure on the eardrum – such as that felt when an airplane lands – as the air chamber is pressurized. “Our advanced Wound Care program emphasizes our commitment to providing the community with high-quality and comprehensive healthcare,” said Shannon Smith, RN, CWOCN, clinical manager of Wound Care services. The new program is available by appointment only. Physicians may refer their patients for evaluation and treatment. Patients may also self-refer. Medicare, Medicaid, and most insurance are accepted. To make an appointment or referral, call 776-7407. For more information, visit

It’s not vacant, it’s unoccupied Commentary by Jamie Ianigro

Question from Jessica W. from Westfield: Labor Day has passed and that means we’re starting to think about closing our lake house for the winter. What kind of Insurance insurance concerns should we be thinking about? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Sorry to hear that news. I’m sure your independent insurance agent would love to come down the next couple of weekends to help you out… A couple of factors come in play when we talk about unoccupied homes and insurance. Notice I didn’t say vacant homes. Let’s start with the difference between vacant and unoccupied. Figuring out the difference between a vacant home and an unoccupied home is as easy as walking in the front door. Unoccupied homes might be a little chilly or a little warm, but people are obviously still living there. It will look like someone could have just left or might be home shortly. A vacant home is going to be pretty much empty and it will be obvious that people are not living there. The fridge will be empty, most of the furniture will be gone, etc. Insurance carriers will not insure an unoccupied home and a vacant home at the same price or coverage levels. A vacant dwelling requires

a special policy and is much more costly than a common homeowner’s policy. Your independent insurance agent can help you find a vacant home policy or elaborate further if you think your home might be vacant. Each insurance carrier is different, but you can start to lose coverage’s if your home is unoccupied for a certain period of time. The big two that usually drop off would be coverage for vandalism and coverage for losses caused by a plumbing failure like freezing pipes. These claims can each be costly, so it is very important to know and understand your policy provisions. Dropping by in January to find a ruined house can be made a lot worse by finding out your insurance carrier is denying all or major parts of your claim. The important takeaway here is to make sure you understand your insurance policy before you lock the doors and winterize the boat. Your independent insurance agent will be glad to go over it with you and clear up any confusion you may have. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services.

Cutting a new career path

By Patricia Griffin Mangan

Never underestimate the living that a hair stylist could earn if trained at an institution such as Kaye’s Beauty Everyday people College “where knowledge and talent meet” according to owner Jim Galloway. Kaye’s has been in business since l974 when Kaye Maxwell opened her shop on Conner Street in Noblesville. Sarah Colby, 2l, works in the Senior Program where she will complete 200 of the 1,500 hours required to graduate. Colby will apprentice at the upscale beauty salon, I.D. entity Hair Design, in Indianapolis. The Westfield resident is already working part time at a salon which could earn her big bucks despite dropping out of Indiana University. Uncertain about what she wanted to do in life, Colby said she was influenced by a beautician whom she knew and who worked out of her home. Galloway, director of admissions, does not guarantee job placement, but staff at Kaye’s does their very best to give references to salons. “Compared to other four-year colleges, we have a much better placement, less loan debt and provide more job opportunities for the 2,500 students since we have been in business,” Galloway said. “People do not realize all that is involved with obtaining a license.” Galloway said it takes 1,500 hours and almost two years to complete courses for cosmetology

and to prepare students to take state board exams to transition to a salon environment. In the Senior Studio, another 700 hours, which takes six to nine months to complete, prepares students with skills developed in final preparation for medical esthetics (facials) in advanced areas such as chemical peels and micro-dermabrasions. Kaye’s also has a men’s salon with separate accommodations and offers a program where high school students attend in the mornings and train to be stylists in the afternoons. Noblesville and Westfield high schools offer this program. For more information, call 773-6189.

BEAUTY BY NUTRITION Preparing your snacks ahead of time is one of the best ways to prevent unwanted weight gain. Our on-staff Registered Dietician has given us her tried and true combos to help keep you full and keep you away from the chips and candy. Planning ahead will keep you from going overboard between meals! Grapes & Grahams: Take one graham cracker and split it into two squares. Spread each square with a light layer of cream cheese. Then sprinkle eight halved grapes over the top. It may sound strange, but it’s so delicious! Pear/Apple & String Cheese: To curb your sugar cravings, have a piece of fruit with a side of cheesy protein. Cheese is packed with calcium, calcium can help adjust your body’s fat-burning machinery. Greek Yogurt: Have a cup of Greek yogurt. If it’s plain, drizzle a little agave nectar over it and top it off with a few berries or slivered almonds. Greek yogurt is packed with protein, which will keep you feeling full. Plus it has a lot of calcium too! Hummus & Veggies: The hummus is made from chickpeas, which is rich in protein and fiber. It’s low fat and filling! READY YOUR FALL WARDOBE IN 7 EASY STEPS Pretty soon we'll be trading our iced coffees for a warm pumpkin spice latte; likewise, we will be making adjustments in our closets, trading sundresses for cozier fare. Because the change of seasons is a much more subtle transition (not like flipping a switch), we're creating a few of our favorite ways to ready for the weather with ease - the pieces you'll need right now to transform your summery staples for the Fall season ahead. • Start simple - a cardigan may just be the best lightweight layer to begin the transition. Invest in soft cashmere versions and longer-length varieties that will wear just as well over your favorite Summer dresses now, as they will with skinny pants and denim later on in the season. • Your footwear is the easiest way to hint at the change of seasons. Start swapping your sandals and wedges for loafers and ankle boots that feel inherently like Fall. You don't have to commit to a head-to-toe Fall style, but changing your favorite gladiator sandals for a pair of loafers with your jeans shows you're on top of the seasonal shift.

IT’S A MATCH For the Fall transition, we're excited to slip on a pair of matchstick pants to pair with your fresh crop of sweaters, silky boyfriend tops, and blazers. Cut close to the body and cropped right at the ankle, matchstick pants are universally flattering and add a slightly more formal touch to your everyday look. Designers are showing a wide array of saturated colors and textured fabrics that's sure to add an unexpected element of sleek splendor to any Fall look. Style them with suede ankle boots or a pair of pointed-toe pumps for a decidedly retro cool tilt on Fall dressing.

• While Summer is the season for breezy cotton, Fall is all about rich, luxe textures. Start introducing corduroy, leather and faux fur detailing when the chill really sets in. • A transition to Fall means adding to your jacket wardrobe. A denim jacket is perfect for everyday to throw over a printed dress, skirt, or tee; later, it will be a staple in your Fall wardrobe, alongside sophisticated skinnies and a snug sweater. • For work: style up your shift dress with a blazer and finish with pumps. • Embrace the shift with a darker palette. Adding jewel tones and deep browns, blacks, and grays to temper bold print and bright color can take even your most summery printed skirts and dresses into Autumn. • Do an accessory swap. Trade in raffia, woven, and lighter-weight satchels for leather and suede satchels or handbags with heavier hardware. Even toting a Fall-feeling purse can give your look a seasonally minded makeover in a snap.

Create your moment Commentary by Randy Sorrell “Creating moments” is the new buzz in the green industry as the satisfaction of outdoor living gains momentum. Inspired families are learning to outdoors spend more time laughing/ dining/talking around the delicious patio than tethered to the television. These abbreviated moments are loosely defined and evoke all sorts of imagery of solitude and romance. Something most of us could use more of. Perhaps it’s a cache of heirloom perennials blasting color and fragrance on a forgotten path, or carved in the edge of an original travertine patio. It could be an iron bench overlooking a hedge of double knock out roses or tastefully placed under a maturing dogwood canopy. Larger moments happen when spaces are arranged with an end product in mind…”I want all the kids to hang out at our place after the musical or football game around the boulder fire pit”. Or…“Our generous patio needs to flow well for the neighbors to gather around our grill counter, smoke cigars and drink a bottle of wine”. CONVERSATIONS. EMOTION. Those are the conversations needed to create the spaces that make these sought after moments happen. Without that, the space may look great, but feel benign. There are several relevant strategies to intentionally draw out the emotion of a gravel path,

covered porch or patio space. Authentic materials and a forward design leads the cause, followed by coordinated color and texture. Quality furniture with dramatic cushions and a textured elegant rug can elevate any space and prompt a sterile concrete slab into a provocative living area. The pictured decomposed granite landing on the side of a historic carriage house is edged with Indiana limestone and protected with a historic iron fence and generous limestone columns. A moment is created. What sort of moments do you hope for? Randy Sorrell is president of SURROUNDINGS by NatureWorks+, a Carmel home improvement firm. He may be reached at 679-2565, or

Properly lighting your master bathroom

Commentary by David Decker

Since it is one of the keystones of any home, chances are that you use your master bedroom space as more than just a place indoors to sleep at night. Functional, beautiful lighting can’t be created from a single light source. You’ll want different types of lighting that correspond with the different activities you do most. To achieve the best lighting design for your master bedroom, consider using layers to light the space. Layering lighting works by blending together multiple light sources to create a rich and ambient atmosphere. Let’s take a look at the specifics of this method and discover how layering can be implemented successfully in your bedroom. The bottom layer of our lighting pyramid is called the “overall” layer orDavid “ambient” layer. This is the foundation of the room’s lighting ing on the computer or applying makeup at the design. Chandeliers, ceiling fixtures and wall vanity. And because task lighting is more direct, sconces fall into this category, and are intended using more of these lights instead of ambient to create soft illumination for everyday use. The lighting can help you save on energy bills. ambient layer will determine the general brightAccent lighting refers to the top layer of our ness of the room. You may want to try installing lighting system. This lighting helps enhance the dimmer switches or wiring different lights to turn on via different switches. That way, you can room and create visual interest. You can use adjust the brightness of the ambiance level up or accent lighting to illuminate art or architectural elements. Accent lights usually are adjustable so down based on the activity you are engaged in. they can be used to produce a variety of styles The next layer of lighting is the “task” lighting. This bright layer illuminates specific areas or sur- for the room. This layer doesn’t necessarily add BFTH_current_quarter_pg_ad_Layout 1 9/3/13 5:48 PM Page 1 functional light to the room; it’s mainly there to faces to help with activities like reading, work-

complete the look of the room. Make sure these lights are on the dim side so they don’t overpower the rest of your décor. Here’s a quick checklist provided by the American Lighting Association to help you determine whether you have an adequate lighting scheme for your master bedroom. You will want to be able to say yes to each of these questions. 1. Can I see well enough to get dressed? 2. Is there a light in the closet? 3. Are there individual reading lights on each side of the bed? 4. Is there an overhead light source? 5. Do I have enough light to determine the colors of clothing in my drawers? 6. Do I have a light source near the door? 7. Have I installed outlets in convenient locations while building/renovating my bedroom? 8. Can I fill dark corners with portable lighting sources? 9. Do I have a dimmer installed on the overhead light source? 10. Are there lights at the dressing table to help with makeup?
