“I had severe tailbone pain, and failed to improve after seven other specialists’ consult. I am just amazed, I received pain relief from just one treatment at Advanced Interventional Pain Center!”.....James simpson.

“ Over three years I have suffered from terrible headaches, I also had low back pain. I was told there was no hope for my pain condition and was put on addictive medications that affected my everyday functioning. I am simply delighted that I am pain free after 3 treatments by Dr. Srini who explained the science behind my pain condition. He has proven that my incurable pain condition was indeed curable! ”….. Edwina Foust after receiving permanent pain relief from headaches.

“I had severe low back pain for seven long years and failed surgical treatments. I could not believe that I am pain free after just three treatments from Advanced Interventional Pain Center!”.....Roberta Marlott. “I have had pain all my life as far as I can remember. I had failed back surgery and failed spinal cord stimulator. After just three treatments my back and leg pain have completely vanished!”..... Billy Hughes. “I had thirty years of back pain, all vanished with just three treatments at Advanced Interventional Pain Center”.....Ladonna Bullock

My name is Vicki Hinkle. I have struggled with foot pain for many, many years. I have had treatment and surgery from several very experienced, sympathetic doctors over the years with some results. As time went on the foot pain increased to the point to cause life style changes. I enjoyed outdoor hiking, long walks with loved ones and occasionally a day of shopping with friends. I had accepted with sadness; the reality those days were gone. A family member had gone to Dr. Srinivasan for back pain and had experienced wonderful results. I was encouraged to inquire about possible help with my foot pain. I had wonderful results in less than a week after my treatment by Dr. Srinivasan. It has now been several months; I am still pain free. I am able to exercise, accomplished weight loss and enjoy outdoor activities once again. I encourage anyone dealing with pain of any kind to schedule a consultation with Dr. Srinivasan and decide for yourself. The options available to you may give you some of your life back too!

“I am happy as can be! It is wonderful to have no back pain after the Laser Treatments from Dr. Srini”……… Robert Russell who is still back pain free at 8 months after treatment, is the world’s first patient to receive the minimally invasive Deep Tissue Low Intensity Laser Therapy (DT-LILT™) for failed back surgery syndrome. DT-LILT™ involves a new contact laser device for selectively destroying the C pain fibers while leaving the healthy tissues intact. DT-LILT™ is invented by Dr. Srini and is first of its kind in the world. DT-LILT™ is NOT FDA approved and is available only at Advanced Interventional Pain Center.

“I had foot pain from a sports injury for 6 months which vanished with just one treatment at Advanced Interventional Pain Center!”.....John Linder

“ I had severe tail bone pain and sciatica after falling on a hard object. For five years I had suffered in severe pain visited many treatment facilities and have spent over $ 60,000 in treatments without any pain relief. I am simply delighted that after just one treatment I am pain free”….. Barbara Wolfe, one year after treatment.

“ I would say the future of pain care is here. With terrible leg pain I had hardly played any golf for the last 2 years. After getting just one treatment from Dr. Srini, I cannot believe that I completed the entire 18 holes with absolutely no pain ”….. Otis Oliver, after permanent pain relief from peripheral vascular pain. He does not require surgery.

OUR VIEWS

It is our position we need to keep a close eye on our pets after a string of dog-nappings has occurred. The story is thieves have turned to kidnapping our pets and turning around and selling them for a profit, or in some cases keeping the pets themselves. Dogs are most commonly the pet of choice for these burglars. We understand it can be difficult to constantly make sure your pets stay out of trouble. For this reason, we highly recommend getting a microchip put on your pet. The chips are normally placed just below the skin between the animals shoulder blades. It’s also relatively cheap. If you get a pet at the Hamilton County Humane Society, all pets will get a chip implanted. If you purchased a pet from somewhere else, the Hamilton County Humane Society sells the chips for $30. The fee includes registration and implementation. We believe this is better than putting tags or other markers on your pet as the chips cannot be removed. It is unfortunate we have to go to such precautions to ensure the safety of our pets, but we believe the price is well worth it.

Civic virtue

It is our position civility is lacking within our communities. Town hall meetings are getting downright brutal. Sidelines at sporting events are filled with ultra-demanding parents and coaches. Fan violence is on the rise at professional football games. Smart phones have become the uninvited dinner guest. All in all, it seems more people are just downright rude. The current state of the economy, sustained unemployment and rising cost of living - along with a divisive government at the helm - seems to be getting the best of us. History reveals without civic virtue, barbarians would have ruled the world. Maybe it’s just nostalgia making us yearn for a less opinionated, more polite society. Listening is the backbone of communication. The use of self-control, moderation, persuasion and compromise in conversation is a more effective way to engage the listener rather than the use of coercion, manipulation and name calling to make a statement. Civility as it is applied to Freedom of Speech is being tested beyond its limits with the wide use of social media platforms such as blogs, Twitter and Facebook, begging the question, “Does one’s passion grant a license to be rude?” We think not.

FROM THE BACKSHOP What do you make of this schools-teachers mess? If, indeed, the law is the law, then we might be compelled to throw thumbs-down on the Noblesville Teachers Forum – more commonly known as the teachers’ union – for filing a lawsuit against Noblesville Schools for not giving salary increases to “certain” teachers. We don’t know what constitutes “certain” teachers, but that doesn’t really matter at the moment. What is of concern to us right now is that the General Assembly this year enacted new legislation for collective bargaining. Our understanding is that the schools cannot grant increases while negotiations are under way, and that certainly is the case in Noblesville, where the collective bargaining agreement between the school and the union expired July 1. This is not, in its entirety, a “bad-will” situation, for the sides have been negotiating to, at a minimum, cover the current academic year. Now? We simply don’t know, but we would be shocked if the union drew a favorable response from Hamilton County Superior Court on its lawsuit. As for the administration, it was attempting to negotiate more aggressive beginning salaries as well as pay hikes for all teachers. Let’s all watch closely and not jump to conclusions. Perhaps it could be as simple as not having a clear un-

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg derstanding of the law - and given the nature of just about anything coming out of the Statehouse, we wouldn’t blame either side if it comes down to confusion. Still, the residual effects in a “guilty” finding would impact the schools’ budget, which is proposed to be approximately $90 million for 2012. Any punitive payment due the union would come out of the $51 million general fund, or money from the state based on enrollment. The remaining $39 million comes right out of your property taxes. If the court rules for the union and awards monetary damages – which would be paid from the general fund - we believe the schools’ remaining flexibility in negotiating will all but disappear.

I never heard

COMMENTARY By Terry Anker Perhaps John Banner said it best in his famous character, Sargent Schultz, from the popular 1960s television program “Hogan’s Heros,” “I know nothing.” As the beleaguered guard overseeing a crew of rebellious American and British prisoners of war in a German camp during World II, Banner has come to exemplify the often undervalued approach that discretion is the better part of valor. Although the comedy would put Schultz in ridiculous circumstances sometimes aimed directly at making fun of Germans (especially soldiers), in these years of recovery when most WWII veterans were at home watching TV with their families, he always managed to show the humanity in electing to keeps one’s mouth shut. This millennium has been touted as the information age. Some believe we will trade in information and thought more than any generation who has come before us. Money will flow from ideas and not goods. To reference another televi-

sion program of the same era, Gene Rodenberry’s “Star Trek” provides a shining example. We may become people of high-mindedness and pure interest in science. I hope so. But can we trade only in thinking without also running the risk of making thought into a precious metal meant to be guarded under lockdown? If I know how to stop bleeding or prevent war, should I charge a fee to do so? In the financial world, some can look at numbers on a page and see opportunity where others only see figures. How much is it worth for them to provide the key? If we know something could cause harm (like Schultz discovering yet another tunnel) should we offer to sell the information – or be paid to withhold it? For me, whatever I hear, I never heard. It just seems simpler.

Some believe we will trade in information and thought more than any generation who has come before us.

A big ‘ole mess

COMMENTARY By Danielle WIlson I’m a mess right now, but luckily for your reading pleasure, I don’t mind sharing my rather embarrassing state of self. My demise began a couple of days ago with a hemorrhoid the size of a toaster. Yah, I said it; the real “H” word. If you’re uncomfortable now, you’d better quit reading. It’s only going to get worse. I ignored it as best I could, but by nightfall I was poppin’ ibuprofen like jelly beans and cursing myself for throwing away all the good netherworld ointments from my pregnancy days. I arose early the next morning so I could hit Meijers before the pain got too bad. Honestly I wanted to buy my Preparation H and Tucks before the busy hours, so I wouldn’t be purchasing those products in front of beautifully-coiffed supermoms and disgustingly-fit bachelors. Unfortunately, these products are not easily found, and I ended up combing the pharmacy aisles for several minutes. After four round-trips, misdirecting any observers by grabbing calcium and Band-Aids, I finally located the goods in the lower shelf of an unmarked section down from deodorant. Despite my new meds, working from home and soaking in several requisite baths yesterday, my situation did not improve. So this morning, I repeated the treatment process. At noon, having cleverly smuggled my meds into the student-shared bathroom through my lunchbox, I

received another very unpleasant surprise. Aunt Flo had decided to visit early, and she was not in a good mood at all. Somehow I muddled through the afternoon without bleeding out, and as I drove home. I focused on the last hurdle of the day before blissful full supination: Retrieve youngest from a play-date with a family I’d never met. I arrived at the correct house and chatted briefly with the mom while my daughter collected her things. Then, just as we were leaving, I caught the heel of my boot on the top step of their expansive porch and tumbled all the way down to the sidewalk. I landed hard on all fours, but immediately jumped up, laughed and assured this woman I was perfectly fine- even though I was suffering mortal embarrassment and ungodly pain in equal measure. I limped to the van as quickly as I could. And now, here I lie with skinned knees and hands, a shin with a massive goose egg, stomach and lower back cramps and a damn appliance hanging out of my butt. Yes, I am a big mess right now, but hopefully you can have a laugh at my expense. Peace out.

3 growing companies seek tax breaks By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com The Noblesville Common Council will host public hearings on the requests from three growing Noblesville companies seeking property tax phase-in increases at its meeting tonight. The companies plan to invest more than $7.12 million and add 38 new jobs to the city. SMC Corp. of America, IDI Fabricating Inc. and its partner DAG Properties LLC have submitted requests to the council to have their properties designated as economic revitalization areas. If approved, the companies would have increases in property taxes resulting from the increase in assessed value of their properties because of the new investment phased in over a number of years. SMC is looking for a 10-year property tax phase-in as it plans to invest more than $5.5 million in equipment to increase production at its North American corporate headquarters. The equipment will also add 28 new jobs with an average salary of $48,246 (excluding benefits). SMC provides a broad range of pneumatic and electric automation equipment to various industry segments and is recognized as a global

Family Owned

leader in the automation industry. The company was recently ranked by Forbes Magazine as the 49th Most Innovative Company in the world. “This is an industry that doesn’t typically see growth right now,” Assistant Economic Development Director Christy Langley said. IDI will invest $905,500 in new equipment to expand its production and distribution capabilities. The company plans to relocate a substantial portion of its production from its current facility on Eighth Street to a larger facility at 14444 Herriman Blvd. The move will create 10 new jobs with an average salary of $52,000 (including benefits). The company manufactures electrical, thermal and dielectric insulation materials and components for the automotive, appliance and electromechanical equipment markets. In addition, DAG Properties, which owns the building IDI will move to, will invest $716,000 to make improvements to the facility to develop the site into a high quality fabrication and manufacturing corporate headquarters. IDI and DAG are both seeking a six-year property tax increase phase-in.

The new laws went into effect on July 1. School officials said they hoped these negotiations would result to raise the base salary because we are not as competitive as surrounding districts and similar-sized districts in the state.” in an agreement that would allow it to offer more competitive Conner said state law states that collecting bargaining could starting salaries and to grant increases to all teachers, including teachers with higher levels of seniority (19 or more years teaching not begin until Aug. 1 and must be complete by Dec. 31. “We’re on a very tight timeline,” she said, adding there are no experience) who have not had a raise in four years. more talks between the two sides scheduled until Oct. 5. “They’re fighting for every last piece they have left.

When Noblesville Schools would not give in to this discussion. School officials refute this allegation and claim they made several attempts to schedule a discussion session, which demand, based on its understanding of the new laws, the union filed the lawsuit and asked the court to order Noblesville Schools to were declined by the forum.

“You’re darned if you do, darned if you don’t,” said Day. “I don’t have a good solution for you with this.” Day said the possible result if the district lost would be that it would be required to meet with the forum for a discussion – which administrators say has been done – and a reprimand to not repeat the mistake. “This seems like a scenario where only the lawyers make out,” Hamm said. Assistant Superintendent Steven Stephanoff said he met with teachers the night before the school board meeting. He said the handbook given by the district to teachers is basically the same information found in the teachers’ contracts without salary and benefit information. “Over 90 percent of it was cut and paste,” Stephanoff said. As a result of both of these actions, Noblesville Schools is forced to defend against the allegations and expend additional funds to cover court costs and legal fees. “It could possibly be tens of thousands of dollars,” said Conner. “If it’s triple increment it’d be over a million with attorney fees.” Members of the teachers forum negotiating team were not in attendance at the school board and declined to talk about the situation. “I have no comments about the lawsuit and unfair labor practice at this time,” Teachers Forum President Duska Landry said. Attempts to contact the Indiana State Teachers Association Unified Service Director Rich Frankhouser who is working with the forum were unsuccessful prior to publication time. The teachers forum and district had a fairly public negotiation last summer as the two sides spent several months discussing experience-based salary schedule increments. A mediator was brought in as the sides could not come together. The 2010-2011 master teachers contract was ratified by both sides on Sept. 7, 2010 – more than three months after that school year had ended.

City receives funding for Hague Road roundabout Current in Noblesville The city of Noblesville has received notice from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization that it has approved $740,000 in grant money to help construct a roundabout at the intersection of 196th Street and Hague Road. The intersection is currently a four way stop sign intersection and is located approximately a quarter mile south of Noblesville Intermediate School. Officials said during the school day, there are many times traffic backs up at the intersection. The roundabout will allow for more efficient and safer flow of traffic. As part of this project, a trail will also be constructed from the intersection north to the Intermediate School. The timeline for the project calls for design work and right of way acquisition to begin this fall. The construction schedule will be established around both the school schedule as well as the timeline for plan approvals by the Indiana Department of Transportation. “This intersection will benefit greatly from a roundabout in terms of improved efficiency and safety,” said Mayor John Ditslear. “Also, the funding will help us advance the goal we have of further connecting trails in Noblesville. We’re grateful to the IMPO for the funding assistance for this project.” Ditslear and City Engineer John Beery serve on the Indianapolis Regional Transportation Council to represent and promote Noblesville’s transportation issues. IRTC works in partnership with the IMPO to develop and implement transportation plans for the Central Indiana region.

the great american backstage musical Who: The cast includes Rebecca Shaffer, Mark Tumey, Ryan Shelton, Sara Baron, Shannon Rehmel and Thomas Root. It is being directed by David Burch. When: 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Oct. 7 and 8; and 2 p.m. Sunday and Oct. 9 Where: The Belfry Theatre, 10690 Greenfield Ave., Noblesville Cost: $17 for adults, $12 for children ages 12 and under Details: Visit www.thebelfrytheatre.com or call 773-1085.

Belfry Theatre kicks off its 20112012 season with ‘The Great American Backstage Musical’ By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com The Belfry Theatre in Noblesville hopes to kick off its 20112012 season with a bang, or at least a “Ba-Boom!” with its first show of the season – “The Great American Backstage Musical.” Cast members said the show is “a musical about people in a musical.” “We start out as a small group in a bar performing a musical review. Then as fate crosses our paths and we make new choices, we go different ways, out to London, over to Broadway, starring in Hollywood, out to the front lines performing for the troops, and then in the end we all are reunited again at the stage where it all began,” said Rebecca Shaffer who plays the female lead Kelly Moran. “This show is funny, startling, humorous, sad, silly, emotional, and happy, all rolled into one!” Ryan Shelton, who plays Banjo, described the show as a tribute look back at old musicals. “It pokes gently fun, while being funny and entertaining. It is the kind of show the Belfry audience will love,” he said. “It’s just a fun, feel-good show with a happy ending – one that has a bit of nostalgia and takes the audience back to a fun era,” added Mark Tumey, the male lead. “It has some great characters the audience will love and hopefully can relate with.” Tumey, who plays Johnny, is performing in his 10th show at the Belfry. He was interested in auditioning for the show after reading the script. “I really liked the story and the fact that it (as with all great musicals) all ends great for everyone,” he said. “There are several interesting and colorful characters in the show which also makes it fun for the actors and the audience. Plus there is so much variety in the musical numbers ranging from love ballads to a jitterbug number, to slap-stick.” The show includes 13 musical numbers and each performer has their favorites. “My favorite song to perform is ‘When the Money Comes In,’ but my favorite song to watch is ‘Ba-Boom!,’” said Shaffer. “I have actually enjoyed singing and listening to all of the music in the show. Every actor and actress, with the help of our fabulous musical director, has worked hard to make all of the music great.” “I have two favorite parts,” added Shelton. “One, which is the more obvious, is when Mark and I sing ‘Ba-Boom!’ It’s funny and we get to play to the audience. I also love toward the end of the show when Sara (Baron) sings ‘I’ll Wait for Joe.’ She does a fabulous job and I can’t stop singing the song afterward.” Of the show’s six actors, Tumey said this is the first time for three of them to be on the Belfry stage. “A mission of the Belfry is to provide quality entertainment to the community, promoting the appreciation of theatre, and developing local talent,” he said. “While we have many people who perform regularly on our stage, we are always looking for new people

to join our local theatre community. This show is an example.” While she has done several shows at Mainstage Theatre in Anderson Ind., this is Shaffer’s first show at the Belfry. She said the Belfry is much closer to her house and is much more convenient when working out childcare plans for the times she is involved in rehearsals and performances. “As for this particular show, I enjoy working with a small intimate cast, plus the script is fun, humorous, and full of music,” she said. “So far, this has been a great theater with a wonderful group of people to perform with. I look forward to doing many more shows here in the future!” Shelton said he likes auditioning for musicals because of the challenge. “It is something out of my comfort zone,” he said. “I wasn’t sure I still wanted to do a musical when I was auditioning, but I saw that a part said it was a Phil Silvers type. Phil Silver is the original Sgt. Bilko and quite funny. I thought it would be fun to take a crack at the part and luckily David cast me.” Shelton jokes he has stopped counting how many shows he’s done. When he is not acting on stage, Shelton can be found out in the audience as a supporter and a director. He will direct “Titanic: The Musical” at the Belfry in February. “Christy Clinton and I saw ‘Titanic: The Musical’ at Myers

Dinner Theatre. We loved the show, particularly the music. As we started talking about it, we realized it was an intimate show. Yes, the ship sings, but this musical is about the people; the real people,” he said. “As a director, I am looking for stories I can tell. I love this period in history and I like the challenge of telling such a big story in an intimate way.” Other shows for the 2011-12 season include “The Perfume Shop,” Nov. 25 to Dec. 10; “Titanic: The Musical,” Feb. 10 to 26; “Twelve Angry Men,” April 13 to 29; and “Hollywood Arms,” June 8 to 24. Tumey, who also serves as the president of the Hamilton County Theatre Guild which manages the Belfry, said these are all new shows for the Belfry. “I honestly believe this season has the potential to be stellar,” he said. “We just need to get our patrons back. The economy is not great and there is so much competition for entertainment dollars. We have five solid shows with three stand-outs as far as I am concerned.” “The Belfry Theatre is a way for the community to connect in an artistic way. It is an honor to perform for people and we have such a loyal audience,” added Shelton. “The Belfry is also about great friendships. It is a place where you can challenge yourself as a performer, but also find fun and entertainment. I am deeply grateful for all those who started this magnificent place.”

DISPATCHES » October gardening tips – 1. Apples keep well for about six months at temperatures between 32 and 45 degrees. 2. A Styrofoam chest or a double cardboard box in a cool mudroom or cellar can approximate root cellar conditions. Remember to give your apples an occasional change of air. Apple cider may be frozen after first pouring off a small amount to allow for expansion. 3. Store beans in a moisture-proof, airtight container. Beans will stale and toughen over time even when stored properly. -www.almanac.com » Civic’s capital campaign – Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre’s capital campaign, The Incredible Journey, has been raising funds since Jan. 1 and will continue until 2014.

Look for a brew without overpowering flavors, such as a lager or a less yeasty witbier, so the pizza’s fresh, subtle flavors can shine. Spicier pizzas, on the other hand, call for spicier beers. Go for an India Pale Ale. If you’re not a hop-head, the malty sweetness of brown ales works well with the sweeter elements on the pizza. -www.eatingwell.com » Wine dinner – Donatello’s Italian Restaurant, 9 W.

Local novelist wins Best Books of Indiana for fiction By Zach Dunkin Current in Noblesville The awards keep rolling in for Noblesville author Larry Sweazy. On the heels of being honored with the prestigious 2011 Will Rogers Medallion award for Western Fiction, Sweazy won the Best Books of Indiana literary competition in the fiction category on Sept. 6. Both awards were for his novel, “The Scorpion Trail,” published by Berkley Sweazy Books. The Best Books of Indiana contest was created to honor Indiana’s long and illustrious literary heritage and recognize Hoosier authors. The Indiana Center for the Books administers the Best Books of Indiana contest and annually accepts entries from Hoosier authors or books that have an Indiana theme or setting. “I’m grateful to the judges for choosing a western, especially a western set in Texas,” said Sweazy, a finalist in the same category last year. “It’s a great honor, and I’m humbled by the recognition from my home state.” The book will permanently join the works of great Hoosier authors such as James Whitcomb Riley, Kurt Vonnegut and Gene Stratton Porter,

NEFL wears purple to support Relay for Life By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com It wasn’t just about winning or losing as Noblesville Elementary Football League players donned purple wristbands, mouthpieces and ribbons on their helmets during the inaugural “Purple Game” on Sept. 17 – it was about raising awareness. The game helped to bring Noblesville’s Relay for Life event and the American Cancer Society, whose goal is to help treat and find cures for all cancers, to the forefront of everyone’s mind in attendance. “It gives them an idea of what cancer is,” said Jen Morris, who co-chairs the Noblesville Relay for Life event with LuAnn Harger. “It also teaches them how they can help by getting involved.” Morris and Harger said the inaugural “Purple Game” was particularly important because NEFL cofounder Dale Snelling passed away on July 18 after his battle with pancreatic cancer. To honor Snelling’s memory and those who have fought and are fighting all forms of cancer, 430 tackle and 225 flag football players and 120 cheerleaders wore purple. “It gives the kids a way to feel they are helping,” Morris said. Organizers said coaches were sharing personal stories with their players after handing out the purple equipment. “If grown-ups feel comfortable talking about it, they’ll feel comfortable talking about it also,”

said Harger. “It’s not something that’s far away – it’s close to home. . . It really opens the conversation up. Unfortunately, everyone is affected (by cancer).” “Kids are surprisingly well informed. By talking we can led them to a greater understanding,” added Morris. In addition to wearing purple, the NEFL will have a team participating in the 24-hour event next May. “It teaches these kids the connection between community and family,” Morris said. Noblesville will host its Relay for Life on May 12-13, 2012 at Forest Park.

Mums the word in a garden COMMENTARY By Mark Skipper I love fall! The colors arriving at our Garden Center have created a dramatic effect after the summer’s drought. When fall arrives, it’s hard not to regret the passing of all the summer blooms we love so much: pompon dahlias, Shasta daisies, African daisies, little zinnias, asters, coreopsis, and calendulas. But take heart, for the fall garden offers all these flower shapes from just one plant, the chrysanthemum. Hundreds of hardy cultivars provide an array of colors and bloom shapes, making mums the divas of the autumn garden. The blooms last for weeks, not days, and the sheer number of flowers per plant will convince anyone this flower really likes to show off. Because of their tight, mounded habit and stunning bloom cover, garden mums are perfect for mass plantings. To get the maximum effect from far away, stick to only one or two colors. Another possibility is to arrange a gradual transition of related colors. Look around your yard to see what colors would best complement the existing landscape. If you decorate for fall with pumpkins and gourds, choose orange, bronze, yellow and creamy white mums. If you have a lot of evergreen plants that provide a backdrop of varying shades of green foliage, try bright pinks, lavenders, pure whites, or reds. With such bold colors, a large grouping of mums can excite

even the most drab of fall landscapes. Garden mums also make great container plants. They’re just right for popping into a clay pot, lining up in a row in a window box, or placing in the center of a mixed container with trailing foliage plants all around. Many landscape plants can provide a backdrop for groupings of mums. For texture, choose ornamental grasses or the neon purple berries of the beautyberry shrub (Callicarpa). You also can pair mums with smoke tree (Cotinus), variegated sedum, the deciduous dwarf Fothergilla gardenii, or almost any conifer.

Overcoming kitchen shortcomings COMMENTARY By David Decker Last year, our client Brenda vowed it would be her last holiday season spent fighting the shortcomings of a 20-year-old kitchen. Since her family is raised and has moved away, holidays have become a special event for the kids, family and friends when they arrive for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She wanted the meal preparation to be equally happy. “We all learn to work in and around the inconveniences often built into our older kitchens, but it doesn’t mean we necessarily learn to like them,” said Joe Evans, a staff member who planned Brenda’s custom kitchen improvement. Many Hamilton County homes were built in 1980s and 1990s eras. Brenda and her family moved into the house six years ago, and dealt with existing inconveniences… An oven built into the island, exactly opposite the dishwasher so the doors banged into each other, the microwave sat on a counter, and the appliances (some original) all pre-dated Brenda’s family’s arrival. Nearly half the pantry’s storage space was wasted because the shelves were in the back, and items stored on the pantry floor were in the way. A built-in desk by the kitchen telephone was a handy idea in 1980, but any chair would block the walk-thru corridor. The desktop was too small, and a junk collector. Recessed ceiling lights left the island dark and

like Home.

While the rest of the Indianapolis area will be stuck inside and constrained by the various ice and snow storms coming this winter, we’ll be living it up at The Stratford! casted shadows on the counters. Removing the desktop, and installing modern pantry shelving led to more storage and more cabinets. The desktop’s removal allowed the oven and microwave to be moved into a wall unit. Under-cabinet lighting and pendant lights over the island brightened the room to solve the shadow problem. The kitchen improved even more after installing all-new cabinets and fixtures, exceptional quality appliances, and granite counters. Brenda has a whole new kitchen and a happy attitude toward cooking for the holidays.

At The Stratford we don’t have to go outside to get to our grand dining room for a delicious, hot meal. We don’t have to drive anywhere to pick out a good read from our library. No one has to hit the sidewalk to travel to the wellness center for some exercise (ours is just down the hall in the clubhouse). We don’t even have to clean up after our parties because the amazing staff here does it for us. In short, while the rest of the area is digging out—we‘ll be living it up! This could be you this winter, so call 317-733-9560 now and ask our Lifestyle Advisors about the benefits of living at The Stratford. By the first snow of this year—you’ll be glad you did!

DISPATCHES » Bone drug lowers cancer risk – A new study adds to evidence that bone drugs may play a role in suppressing cancer development, although there is still no proof that taking the medications would stave off malignancies. The drugs, called bisphosphonates, have been linked both to fewer cases of cancer and an increased risk of certain thigh fractures and serious jaw problems. -www.foxnews.com » Eat more cabbage – One cup of chopped cabbage has just 22 calories, and it’s loaded with valuable nutrients. At the top of the list is sulforaphane, a chemical that increases your body’s production of enzymes that disarm cell-damaging free radicals and reduce your risk of cancer. In fact, Stanford University scientists determined that sulforaphane boosts your levels of these cancer-fighting enzymes higher than any other plant chemical. How to eat it: Put cabbage on your burgers to add a satisfying crunch. Or, for an even better sandwich topping or side salad, try an Asian-style slaw. -Men’s Health » Lower cholesterol with fiber – Research suggests that increasing soluble fiber intake by 5 to 10 grams each day may result in a 5 percent drop in LDL cholesterol.

By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com The first Honor Flights took off in 2005, carrying 12 World War II veterans to the memorial in their honor in Washington, D.C. Six years later, the Honor Flight Network has transported more than 63,000 veterans of WWII, Korea and Vietnam to see their respective memorials in the nation’s capitol – all at no cost to the veterans themselves. For John Gagnon, who traveled with his father Jack as a “guardian” on an Honor Flight Sept. 14, the program represented an opportunity to pay respect to a generation that gave its all to America. “These guys, for the most part, all grew up during the Great Depression,” Gagnon said. “Then when they came of age, we had the war, and we shipped them off halfway around the world to fight. When they came back, we had our industrial revolution, and these guys were the ones who were rebuilding the country.” “So (Honor Flight) said, ‘The least we can do is give these guys a free trip to Washington, D.C., to see the memorial they were responsible for,’” Gagnon added. Saluting our heroes Honor Flight’s motto comes from cowboy-actor Will Rogers, who said, “We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by.” To that end, the Honor Flight Network aggressively seeks donations, and corporate partnerships with organizations such as Southwest Airlines, to fly as many veterans as possible to their memorial. In 2005, the first year of the program, 137 veterans were transported to Washington, D.C. Last year, more than 22,000 veterans were given the opportunity to visit the memorials honoring their service and sacrifice to this country. Priority is given to terminally ill veterans and veterans of WWII. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates say approximately 1,000 of the latter pass away every day. As the program continues, priority will continue to Korean War, Vietnam War, and other veterans on a chronological basis. The goal is to help every American veteran who is willing and able to visit their memorial.

A group of WWII veterans posing before their memorial in Washington, D.C. According to Gagnon, Honor Flights goes above and beyond simply providing transportation to veterans in its mission to pay tribute to them. “The utmost respect was paid to them,” Gagnon said. “They didn’t have to go through the TSA at the airport. They let them go without being screened, and without the hassle of taking their shoes off. The TSA even lined up outside the airplane and gave them a full color-guard salute as the plane pulled away from the airport.” When they arrived, Gagnon said uniformed GIs were

there to greet them, and to shake each veteran’s hand. Gagnon’s father served in the infantry during WWII. While deployed in Manila, he was injured, and later awarded a Purple Heart for his service. Gagnon said his father was “absolutely overwhelmed” by the trip. The Honor Flight Network offers transportation to Washington, D.C., from “regional hubs,” of which two are located in Indiana – the Greater Lafayette Honor Flight and Honor Flight Northeast Indiana, in Huntertown. There is also a hub in Cincinnati. For more information about Honor Flight Network, or to find an application, visit www.honorflight.org, or call 937-521-2400.

Flu myths COMMENTARY By Dr. Jugnoo Husain According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), influenza (flu) season usually begins around October and can last up to May. Despite it being a common illness, misconceptions about influenza are widespread. So, here are some myths – and realities – about the flu: Myth 1: You can catch the flu from going out in cold weather without a coat or with wet hair. Wrong. The flu is by caused by the influenza virus, NOT by exposure to cold. Because flu season coincides with cold weather, the two are often mistakenly linked. People get sick more often in the winter because they tend to stay indoors and are more likely to spread germs to one another. Myth 2: Antibiotics can fight the flu. Antibiotics work against bacteria, but they’re absolutely useless against viruses like influenza. Moreover, taking unnecessary antibiotics increases development of resistant bacteria. Antibiotics are useful only if a secondary bacterial infection develops as a complication of the flu. Myth 3: The flu vaccine can give you the flu. No, the injectable flu vaccines only contain dead virus, so it is impossible for them to cause infection. The nasal spray vaccine does contain one type of live, but weakened, virus and it

causes few, if any, symptoms in healthy people. Some people do get sick after their flu shot, but they are either already incubating the virus, are exposed to a strain different from the viruses included in the vaccine, or have an illness due to an unrelated cold virus. The vaccine ends up getting blamed, erroneously. Myth 4: There’s no treatment for the flu. Antiviral medications can help reduce symptom severity and shorten the duration of disease communicability. However, antivirals are mostly helpful when taken within the first 48 hours of illness. Myth 5: Immunity may decline before the flu season ends if you get vaccinated in September; or by January it’s too late to get the vaccine. No and no. According to the CDC, immunity from vaccination lasts throughout the season. September through November are optimal flu-shot months, but late vaccination can still be beneficial as long as influenza is circulating. Because seasonal influenza often peaks in January and February, a late vaccination can still provide protection and prevent much misery.

Fitness expert to share strategies for combating aging process editorial@youarecurrent.com National fitness expert Kathy Smith will come to Carmel this week to share some of her secrets. On Wednesday Smith will host an on-site training session at The Stratford, an active retirement community in Carmel. She has been a leading force in the wellness industry since 1980, and her diverse capabilities cover all aspects of fitness. As she turned 60 this year, Smith launched a new agefighting workout Smith line called Ageless with Kathy Smith specifically targeted for the unique needs of the Baby Boomer generation and beyond. Nearly 30 years in the making, the Ageless series is a total-body workout designed to shape lean muscle while increasing bone density and stamina. The end result, Smith says, is a youthful, healthy body crafted from just 15-minute videos that work within the framework of Boomers’ busy lives. As adults age, their muscle mass has a tendency to wither away, making those individuals more susceptible to life-altering events such as fractures resulting from falls. Through a holistic approach to the aging process, Smith shows older adults how to maintain their physical health as they age. A mother of two daughters, Smith has sold more than $50 million in infomercial products featuring her motivational skills and more than 16 million workout videos worldwide (inducting her into the Video Hall of Fame). She also recently became spokesperson for ICAA (International Council on Active Aging), leading their mission to promote healthy, active living for adults ages 50-plus.  The training session will go from 1 to 4 p.m. The Stratford is at 2460 Glebe St., Carmel. For more information, call 733-9560.

Less is more in fitness Commentary By Marcia Wilson Last weekend my sister fell off her bike. Apparently it was pretty spectacular and she was scraped up from her shoulder to her toes. Did I mention she is sixty-something and was at the 59-mile mark of her ride? She wanted to finish the ride, but since her helmet sustained a pretty good dent her husband suggested she go to the emergency room and have her head examined! First the nurse brought her a couple of pills, but after she asked what they were, why she needed them and what the side effects might be she opted not to take them. Next they wanted to treat her abrasions, but she told them she’d prefer to just use soap and water at home. Then the doc wrote out a prescription for pain medication, which she did not fill. All she wanted was to make sure her brain was intact! The CT scan showed there was nothing there. We’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of that, but the reality is she is a great example of taking responsibility for her health. Think about it, she was exercising, building strong bones. Good thing! Okay, so she fell – it’s an occupational hazard of living. She was wearing a helmet but also knew the impact could cause damage, so she went to the ER. Then she practiced “less is more” in the ER, knowing that if she didn’t need the medications she didn’t want to risk the side effects.

Lately the research is leaning towards less is more. We’re finding that the bandwagon approach to healthcare isn’t a good thing since even some common tests and medications come with certain risks, particularly for older adults. Even the experts haven’t figured out the balance between a test that saves some lives but is useless or detrimental when recommended for the general population. So you’re hoping to hear less is more when it comes to exercise, right? Well, yes and no. “No pain, no gain” is a myth – there is much to be gained using slow, natural movement. However, sometimes more is more, because the more you move the more you gain strength, flexibility and stability. Try this: make a tight fist, then spread your fingers as far apart as possible. Continue opening and closing your hands as you raise your arms up in front of you, parallel to the floor, now spread your arms out to the side. Pretty simple and painless, but feel all the muscles that are working in your hands, arms, shoulders and back. Less strain, more gain. Marcia Wilson holds an M.A. in gerontology and teaches exercise courses for aging adults in Fishers. Wilson can be reached at wanderw@iquest.net.

For the coming year, analysts expect earnings of about $4.60 per share. At the current share price, the forward P/E is a ridiculously low 6.7. GM Stock price over 12 months

General Motors (GM) – Investors may not yet trust GM’s reinvention, but the sales and profits are already there. For the full year, analysts currently project sales growth in excess of 10 percent for total sales of nearly $150 billion. They expect earnings of $4.40 per share, which would represent growth of 52 percent from last year’s $2.89 per share. At the current share price, the stock trades at a rock-bottom P/E of about 5. With a stable economy, earnings could reach $6 per share or higher within three years. Petrobras (PBR) – Petrobras boasts 12.1 billion barrels of oil equivalent in reserves but it will require at least $224 billion in spending to build the rigs and drilling wells to extract. This astounding level of capital expenditure is nothing new to Petrobras. In the past decade, sales have risen from $24.5 billion to $120 billion, an average annual growth rate of 17 percent.

MET Stock price over 12 months

MetLife (MET) – Overseas exposure, especially in Asia, greatly boosts MetLife’s growth prospects. Analysts project full year total sales growth of 24 percent, to $66 billion. They expect earnings of $5.20 per share, or 73 percent above the $3 it reported in 2010. Management also has a goal to boost return on equity to 15 percent within five years. This works out to about $6.63, based off current book value (or equity) of $44 per share. Once again, the stock has the potential to double as earnings grow and the P/E expands back closer to 10, which is MetLife’s average multiple during the past decade.

The affordability and necessity of renter’s insurance INSURANCE By Ryan Samuelson Question from Matt P. from Fishers: After a long summer, I found a job. I will be moving out of my parents’ house, and they are bugging me about getting a renter’s insurance policy. Is this something I really need? Response from Ryan Samuelson: Congratulations on the new job! Now it’s time to protect your paycheck with a renter’s insurance policy. People like to make a lot of excuses for neglecting to purchase a policy. Excuses range from the policies’ affordability to lack of items to insure, and the assumption nothing bad will happen. The liability protection is a big enough reason to buy, but let’s break it down. The first thing you need to know is renter’s insurance is affordable. A typical policy can cost less than $200 per year, which is less than $4 per week. You are also in for a nice bonus if you already have car insurance. Many insurance carriers will give you a multi-policy discount if you package your auto and renter policies together with the same company.  The second thing you need to know is your stuff is more valuable than you realize. How much would it cost you to start over if you had a total loss? Apartments burn down and get robbed just like houses. Starting over is easier

when your independent insurance agent drops off a check to replace all of your stuff. The last thing you need to know is probably the most important. A renter’s policy protects your financial assets by providing liability coverage. Liability insurance covers injury caused to others and damage to your property. There are many ways to trigger a liability claim. Here are some examples. Claim Scenario A: You decide to play in a recreational softball league. You hit a pitch back, and put him in the hospital. The pitcher sues you, but your renter’s policy steps in to defend you and settle the suit. Claim Scenario B: You have some friends over for dinner.Your floor is wet and a friend slips and falls, requiring medical treatment. Your renter’s policy steps in to pay for the treatment. The risk of going without this simple insurance coverage is not worth the couple of dollars a week you save by not having it. Call your independent insurance agent today, and make sure you’re covered! Ryan Samuelson is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services. Have an insurance question you need answered? Send it to asktheadvisor@ shepherdins.com.
