OUR VIEWS

It is our position that Conner Prairie Interactive History Park should be commended on the commitment it makes to Hamilton County and Indiana. Bringing both entertainment and learning to people of all ages, Conner Prairie continues to seek new and exciting ways to grow. The park, which provides 80 full-time and more than 250 part-time and/or seasonal jobs, has increased attendance by 9 percent this year alone. No doubt thanks to innovative programming that put us in the shoes, homes, and lives of individuals from that important time period in Indiana history. This fall, Conner Prairie brings us the Headless Horseman, which annually brings visitors to Prairie town hearing ghost stories and rumors of the Hessian soldier, who still stalks the town looking for his head! Other programs include Marsh Symphony on the Prairie, which this year hosted a record attendance of more than 112,000 people coming out to enjoy the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s performances at the outdoor shell. Conner Prairie boasts opportunities for residents of all ages, whether for education or plain fun (or both); and, we should all go and enjoy them at 13400 Allisonville Road in Fishers.

A third alternative

It is our position that organized government is essential to a civilized existence. The difficult part is determining how much government is simply too much. We believe that the current level of government may be pushing those boundaries. With many of us suffering from the worst economic conditions since the stock market crash in 1929, we are concerned with the largess of many elected officials. As both major political parties seem addicted to following polls and chasing fringe voters, it becomes increasingly difficult to determine which entity supports thoughtful taxation and only necessary regulation on business from that which chooses a path of attempting to deficit spend all the way to prosperity. We consider that the long-term solution to the current a self-perpetuating and ever-expanding government is a system that allows, even encourages, alternative parties. For this to happen it is necessary to get “money” (code for special interests) out of politics. With the Internet and other methods of communications available today, it is increasingly easy for candidates to work to get their positions to voters. Just give us the facts and let us decide which candidate has the best approach. Then, maybe union and corporate dollars can stay home.

From the backshop OK, this time we REALLY mean it Today is a special day at Current Publishing. As you read this prose, our wonderfully revised Web sites for all our publications, which may be accessed at www.youarecurrent.com, have been redeployed and are ready for you to use. The truth of the matter is – and with all due respect and apologies to our former Web site developers – we publish newspapers. We didn’t really “get” Web sites … until our new developer, Fat Atom, gave us a figurative slap right between the eyes. Truly – and rightfully - it was a slap at us, not at those who preceded Fat Atom as our Web specialists. We deserved it. So we got current, so to speak, and took a few lessons – enough to be semi-dangerous at this virtual stuff – and we made getting it correct for YOU a priority. So, starting today, our sites are going to be more navigable, more interactive and more immediate, and you’ll notice a different look and feel. In addition, we now have a smart-phone app that makes it possible for you to read Current wherever you are and whenever you want. (Elsewhere in these pages, there are instructions about that and how to navigate the site.) We invite you to use it all and make it work for you. Please

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg also feel free to present us with submissions directly from the site you choose to use. In all seriousness, though, just as our 100-percent penetration newspapers have evolved over time, so, too, has our online presence. Did it take us too long to get to this point? It certainly did. But, in our case, this is “better late than never.” Ten years after the fact, we’ve been dragged into the 21st century. Now, if we can figure how they get those rolls of newsprint into everyone’s computer, we’ll have this technology thing licked!

Killing me softly

Commentary By Terry Anker Mickey’s Camp is a long-running retreat for civic leaders and business people sponsored by local philanthropist and businessman, Mickey Mauer. One of the many reasons to attend Mickey’s Camp is an opportunity to participate in a Police Training Exercise. Essentially an elaborate videogame, the exercise puts a person in front of a 12 foot video screen with a firearm, which has been rigged electronically to interact with activities on the display. An operator of the device then selects from an array of computergenerated circumstances that posit actors portraying scenes. For example, a student might find themselves as an off-duty police officer in a bank lobby when an armed robbery commences. Based upon one’s actions, both verbal and physical, the operator of the device directs preprogrammed video responses back to the learner. The intent is to teach you how to react quickly and under pressure. Finding yourself in a darkened room, holding a handgun, while reacting to the situation play-

ing out on the screen raises scores of ‘what-if ’ questions. Could I kill another person? Could I kill them if I believed myself or another to be in danger? If I chose to fire, what if I killed a bystander? What if I chose not to shoot and the bad guy kills me or others? Experiencing the exercise, and watching many others participate, I’ve learned that seemingly similar individuals react in entirely different ways. Some may refuse to fire and are shot by the video game criminal. Others act too quickly, perhaps killing someone who would otherwise have surrendered or striking innocent bystanders. Some fire a single bullet while others empty a clip. Ultimately one learns a lesson of balance, restraint and a willingness to act. It’s not as easy as it looks.

Feeling lucky and stupid in Downtown Noblesville Commentary By Zach Dunkin A friend of mine recently parked outside a Chinese restaurant at a busy, well-lit intersection of Georgetown and Lafayette roads near where I live in Indy. Inside the store for less than 5 minutes for a pickup, he returned to his locked car to discover that someone had broken a window and stolen his laptop, cell phone and two kids’ backpacks. So, what does this have to do with Noblesville? Stay with me here. Last week I was downtown and parked my white pickup a half block off the Square to interview someone in Noble Coffee, where I conduct most of my business. (Who doesn’t, right?) After a good talk session over a tall mug of Noble’s famous hot chocolate, I returned to my truck to discover… ….no, not that someone had broken in and stolen my highly visible laptop and a Canon SLR camera, but that they would not have had to bash in my windows because I left both doors unlocked. I really didn’t deserve that good fortune for being so careless, but I think it says a lot about downtown Noblesville. Feeling I needed to commend somebody at

the Noblesville Police for this, I called Lt. Bruce Barnes to let him know how safe I felt here, and that his department deserved some props for making it happen. Barnes thanked me for my call, but instead of boasting about department’s influence on the city’s low crime rate, he basically said I was darn lucky, and that it doesn’t always turn out that way. “As much as we try to prevent break-ins and thefts, we can’t be everywhere, and unfortunately it happens, and some people never get their items back,” confessed Barnes. So, we both decided to take this opportunity to tell everyone about Operation Identification, which can track down stolen items such as laptops, GPS devices and cameras should you not be as fortunate as I was. But it works, only if you etch your driver’s license number on the items.

Helpful tips for the mother

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson This summer was a bit crazy for the Wilson clan. We sold our home of nine years and lived with the in-laws for three months, then moved into a new house the week before I went back to work fulltime. I did the best I could, but I think it’s safe to say I won’t be winning Mother of the Year. Despite the madness and noticeable absence of home cooked meals though, I did manage a few small mommy successes. Here they are. 1. Removing Gak: The Easter Bunny inconsiderately brought my kids Gak, a gooey substance made from what I’m sure is radioactive slime. When the stuff comes in contact with cloth, it sticks like tar on feathers. Washing failed, hand-picking failed, even peanut butter was a no-go. Guess what finally worked. Vinegar! If you set the contaminated article in a bowl of vinegar, the Gak scrapes out easily. Woo-hoo! 2. Soccer Smelliness: Our mud room use to stink like an NFL jock hamper thanks to a

constant influx of sweaty shin guards and cleats. No longer, because a fellow mom turned me on to the use of deodorant. Now our kids spray their equipment after each use with Right Guard, and we enjoy a clean, powder-fresh scent year round. 3. Cold Lunches: I use to buy the refreezable ice packs to refrigerate my kids’ lunches, but my so called Honor Roll students would inevitably toss them in the garbage can with their used straws and trash. Now I simply freeze their juice boxes! They stay cold long enough to keep the yogurt from spoiling but are (mostly) defrosted by meal time. Yes, thank you, I am brilliant. 4. Kitty Stench: We have one cat, amazingly a still alive cat, whose litter box would begin smelling after only a day or two. About a month ago, I accidently purchased multi-cat litter. It was a good five days before the odor became unbearable. Sold! Now I actually have the time to revel in the drastic reduction of my kitty poop scooping duties.

5. Fruit Flies: We recently suffered a major infestation of these annoyingly prolific beasts. I tried every possible method of destruction known to the Internet and actually found one that works! Place some fruit in a bowl, cover with Saran Wrap, and poke holes in the top with a fork. The flies, drawn to the smell of the rotting fruit, wiggle their ways under the wrap, but can’t get back out. Suckers! If you empty your trap and replace the piece of decaying peach or apple nightly, and, of course, remove the original source of the flies (read: start doing your dishes on a regular basis), you’ll be bug-free in no time. Here’s hoping my new-found knowledge (though gleaned through a half-butt attempt at efficiency this summer) will make your mommy-life a bit easier. Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at danielle@ currentincarmel.com.

Controversy and conflicting reports swirl around autism, but it’s likely you know someone dealing with it.

City survey now available online Current in Noblesville In late August, the City of Noblesville mailed out an anonymous survey to 1,200 randomly selected Noblesville household to learn what residents think of the community. Those who did not receive a survey but still wish to participate can now do so online at the City of Noblesville website (www.cityofnoblesville.org) until Oct. 30.  For those who do not have access to the Internet, the Hamilton East Public Library offers patrons free access to computers.  Also, people

are welcome to visit tbe Planning Department at City Hall (16 S. 10th St.) 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and use one of the department’s computers to fill out the online survey. The Citizen Survey was initiated by the Noblesville Community Vision for Excellence Steering Committee to provide city leaders with the opportunity to learn what residents believe are the strengths and weaknesses of the community and of local government and will assist city officials with long-term planning.

Hoping to keep feet warm this winter, the office does not accept donations of flip-flops, and prefers closed-toed shoes. Individual footwear and sock donations may be dropped off at Noblesville Foot Clinic, 475 Sheridan Road in Noblesville during weekday business hours. “Churches and other organizations often participate, collecting shoes and bringing them to the office as well,” commented Flaumenhaft. “Two years ago we gathered over 400 pairs and hope to break that record this year. “Every pair of shoes and socks donated is given out. It’s our way of giving back.” For more information contact Noblesville Foot Clinic at 317.776.0077.

By Darla Kinney Scoles Current in Noblesville Noblesville podiatrist Dr. Gad Flaumenhaft cares for feet all day long. He also cares that the feet of Hamilton County have the shoes they need for the coming winter. That’s why Flaumenhaft organizes a shoe drive each fall to collect new and gently-used footwear for those in need . With donations accepted at his office during the months of October and November, Flaumenhaft partners with Good Samaritan Network to distribute the shoes within Hamilton County at Thanksgiving time as well as the Christmas holiday season. “There is a need for shoes of all sizes,” said Flaumenhaft. “Baby shoes, children and adult. We also accept new socks.”

To find out what materials are available and what hours the library is open, you can go online to www.nsfollett.nobl.k12.in.us The library opens on the heels of Noblesville Schools’ Autism House, a collaboration between Noblesville Schools and HamiltonBoone-Madison Special Services. Located at Hinkle Creek Elementary, Autism House is a model classroom that helps teachers and staff members better understand strategies in working with students with autism and other developmental disorders. The specially-equipped classroom demonstrates methods that teachers can use to make students feel more relaxed and secure, which goes a long way in helping students participate in a classroom alongside their peers.

Commentary By Leslie Webber In the 1970’s few people had heard of autism. The diagnosis rate was 1 in 10,000 children. Today, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates the disorder affects 1 child in 110. Noblesville Schools saw an increase in their population of students on the autism spectrum of nearly 22 percent in a two-year span. Controversy and conflicting reports swirl around autism, but it’s likely you know someone dealing with it. One thing people seem to agree on is early and frequent intervention is helpful to the majority of children with autism. Information can make all the difference. Thanks to a grant from Autism Advocates of Indiana, Inc. Noblesville Schools has opened the Noblesville Autism Resource Library. Located within the media center at Noblesville High School, (1811 Cumberland Road) the library has material resources that cover a wide range of topics related to autism. The materials are available to anyone in the community. To access the materials, you don’t even have to make a trip to NHS; materials may be re-

between tending our creative fires or having a clean house, we go with the fire tending. Should we feel guilty? Nah. Later I was re-reading a passage in one of my very favorite books of all time, Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ Women Who Run With the Wolves, and I read this: “I’ve seen women insist on cleaning everything in the house before they could sit down to write…and you know it’s a funny thing about house cleaning…it never comes to an end. Perfect way to stop a woman.” Estes talks about the wild creative force flowing into each of us like a river, and will we pollute it or keep the waters clear? Our creative ability is our most valuable asset. I love that.

Commentary By Krista Bocko I was standing in my kitchen a few weeks ago talking to my friend that just moved here. As she stood in the chaos that comprised my kitchen that afternoon, she remarked how she wouldn’t feel apologetic to have me over to her house for the first time – after having seen mine. I laughed. But that’s good because I want people to be comfortable in my house. And while I do prefer clean and clutter-free to messy, that’s not my reality most of the time. I can’t stress out about it too much, or I’ll miss out on what’s most important to me, which are people and relationships and following my path of what I think makes this world a better place. My friend and I stood there in my messy kitchen and talked about how we fiercely hold on to what we’re passionate about, and we make space for our creative fires to burn hot and bright, even though that often means letting go of other things, because when it comes down to choosing

If they can make guilt-free candy, why not guilt-free cards? Commentary By Brenda Alexander Hallmark does not have a monopoly on guilt, but the FTC could do worse than investigate them. At the very least, some insider trading (of their cards) is likely to produce as many victims as it will winners in the ongoing politeness war. Not being aware of this war will not protect you. If you ever received a thank you card that was so thoughtfully written you felt you needed to respond with another thank you card, you are a victim. These cards are two-edged swords, used expertly as both paeans to politeness and goads to guilt. Even worse than Hallmark are those hand-crafted cards that smack of sincerity, making attempts at guilt-by-politeness a certainty. In the field, handmade cards have a 100 percent kill rate. They work because you know your overture to host a play date was not sufficient to warrant such a gorgeous card. Receiving one can only be seen as an escalation of host-ilities. So you display the card on your counter and conscientiously stand it up after each homework

session. But eventually, it falls and instead of propping it up, you put it in The Box. Which raises the question of when, if ever, you can trash a greeting card? Most cards in The Box date from merely the past two decades, but some are actually congratulation cards on my mom’s new baby… me! I think there should be a place like Yucca Mountain in Nevada where spent greeting cards can be transported to live out their half lives in a safe, humidity free, acid neutral environment. They cannot simply be disposed of with your household trash. The guilt would go nuclear. I’d up the ante and make outrageously expensive overtures to the senders, but alas, mine is an unfunded war. It seems I’m just going to have to do the polite thing. And I’m going to need a bigger box. Brenda Alexander is a freelance writer and resident of Noblesville.

Historic homes of Noblesville

Location: 1336 Conner Street Owners: Vernon and Dottie Young, since 1987 Style and history: Queen Anne vernacular cottage, circa 1880, built by Marion and Mary Essington. This 1 ½ story home features a large bay window overlooking Conner Street and a large front porch. Marion was a Civil War veteran and died as a result of lingering effects of a Civil War wound. Mary finished the home and lived here with her daughter Clara until her death in the early 1920’s. The most notorious owner was Citizens National bank president Harry Craig who embezzled money from the bank in the 1930’s. What work have you done on your house? “We’re wallpapering the kitchen and putting a new shower in the downstairs bath. We’ve had the chimneys restored, turned an upstairs half- bath into a full bath, put in new wiring, plumbing, furnace, roof, taken out carpet, you

name it. We wonder what people in new homes do for fun.” What are your favorite features? “We love the walls that are three bricks thick, the bay windows, the coffered ceiling on the front porch and the limestone window sills. Inside I love the bay window and original fireplace and our large kitchen.” What do you like about this area/neighborhood? “Our neighborhood and our neighbors. We love being able to walk downtown to shop and have lunch or dinner with friends and being able to walk to Forest Park or Seminary Park. Noblesville’s Old Town is still a small town.” Carol Ann Schweikert contributed the home research.

Young Life of Noblesville strives to build relationships with NHS students

City Codes

By Angela Daugherty Current in Noblesville If you have a student at the Noblesville High School, they might have mentioned a new face they have noticed at the football game or in the school lunch room. The new face is Michael Redding, director of Young Life of Noblesville, which launched a group in the community Aug. 1. Young Life is an interRedding national, non-denominational organization with groups around the world. Members Young Life of Noblesville will be tailgating at the next NHS football game on Oct. 8. “Young Life is about going where kids are, showing up in their lives, forming relationships with them, showing them we care, in the hope of sharing the gospel with them later down the road,” explains Redding of the organization designed to meet the needs of students in Grades 9-12. Young Life representatives go to schools, games and practices and band concerts and might even volunteer to chaperone a dance. Young Life considers itself a ministry about relationships and follows the model of the three “C’s”– club, campaigners, contact. • Club meetings are once each week and might include games, food and skits. • Campaigners are weekly Bible study groups

that help students go a little deeper in their relationship with God. • Contact is the relationship building that happens when Young Life leaders go to the schools and events where teens are involved with. Young Life of Noblesville has several leaders who are students from Anderson University and other adults from the community. A committee of adults offers assistance with events and fundraising efforts throughout the year. The group’s biggest need is for more committee members and adult leaders to support their efforts. For more information, contact Michael Redding at http://noblesville.younglife.org or look for the organization on Facebook at Noblesville Young Life.

‘Night with the Stars’ event rolls back time to support Janus By Angela Daugherty Current in Noblesville It’s time to get out your finest clothes and put on your dancing shoes – all for a good cause. Janus Developmental Services will host its annual fundraising event, “A Night with the Stars,” Oct. 23 at the Oak Hill Mansion, 5801 E. 116th St., Carmel. The fundraiser helps with the many programs offered by Noblesville-based Janus (pronounced JAY-nus). The organization provides assistance to adults and children with disabilities allowing them to participate and contribute to the community. Janus offers opportunities for education, employment training, independent living and information to individuals and their families. Janus’ Work Experience program offers individuals with developmental, physical and intellectual disabilities the opportunity to learn basic employment skills such as completing assignments, working with co-workers, and arriving to work on time. Businesses within the community provide work ranging from labeling mailings to assembling lighting brackets. Other examples of work provided by community partners include assembly of diabetes

testing equipment, collating and folding product brochures, community businesses play an integral role in the employment training process of the individual’s we serve. As a program partner, businesses benefit from a competitive and affordable labor force.

Rosie’s Place

Where: 68 N. 9th St., Noblesville Phone: 317.770.3322 Website: www.rosiesplace.net Hours: Monday through Friday 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Look who’s back in the kitchen Owner-chef sharing old family recipes and expertise in new Rosie’s Place on the Square

By Zach Dunkin Current in Noblesville The timing was right. Her three girls had grown into teen-agers. Her husband had a good job. And after moving from St. Louis to the Boston area, the Borgerais family was comfortably settled in Hamilton County. All Debbie Borgerais needed now to return to what she was born and reared to do was the right “space.” Then one day, “it all fell into place,” as she described it. “In formulating what Rosie’s Place should be, it wasn’t until we walked into this space and saw it, that it was like, ‘OK, now I have everything I am comfortable with and the recipes I love to make … it fits here better than anywhere else,’ ” said the 45-year-old chef of her search for the perfect restaurant site. “There hasn’t been a minute since then that I felt this isn’t what we’re supposed to be doing.” The correct space happened to be 68 N. 9th St. on the Courthouse Square, most recently the home of the short-lived Trader’s Café and The Artist’s Vineyard before that. Now it’s Rosie’s Place, a breakfast-lunch-pastry cafe serving made-from-scratch dishes seven days a week from family recipes going back three generations. Though new to the restaurant industry here, Debbie’s family is well-known in St. Louis, where her father, Ron Amann, established a trio of family run-and-owned cafeterias. Like their father, all the Amann children went to culinary school and combined that knowledge with time-tested family recipes for a business that remains today, the iconic Miss

www.youarecurrent.com

Sheri’s Cafeteria, named for one of the Amann daughters. When Debbie’s husband, Michael, was offered a job with the Gateway computer company in Boston, Debbie left the family business for the first time. “This opportunity came along and Michael said, ‘Well, this way you can’t work the business because you’ll be too far from it.’ There was no way I could get up and go into work,” she said. Living in the Boston suburb of Franklin for the next eight years, Debbie dabbled in teaching cooking classes and catering but spent most of her time mothering her three daughters, Maddi, Ali and Katie. “Noblesville reminds me a lot of out East, where all the towns have a town commons, all the shops are locally owned, and that’s where you look first before you go to the chains or big box stores,” she said. “Everybody took care of each other. “Noblesville seems to have been able to hold onto that, and that’s what I love about it.” Concerned about the future of Gateway computers, Michael left the company in 2001

A new kitchen awaits made-from-scratch dishes from old family recipes.

With her husband now working for software solutions firm Blue Horseshoe, daughter Maddi at Auburn University, and Katie, a sophomore and Ali, a senior at Carmel High School, Debbie decided the timing was right to return to the kitchen. “When we moved to Indiana, it was always in the back of my mind,” she said. “I knew I’d do it again.” Named for Debbie’s grandmother, Rosie’s Place has an old, home-style feel with most of the dishes, including Grandma’s biscuits, sausage gravy and corned beef hash, made with family recipes. They roast and slice all of their meats and make their own bread, soups and pies. “I had to relearn how to roll dumplings because I haven’t done that in awhile,” she said. While the breakfast menu includes everything

Current in Noblesville

from eggs, French toast and omelets to muffins, scones and biscotti, the lunch offerings include mostly sandwiches, soups and salads. And, of course, the family’s famous, made-from-scratch pies, to go with the café’s own blend of coffee (for less than $2 a cup, free refills). “We’ll keep our eyes and ears open to what the customers want,” Debbie said. “We know who we are and what our base is, but we have plenty of room to head in different directions. “My biggest hope is to be a part of this town, just like our business was when I was growing up in St. Louis. This is not about me. This is about Rosie’s Place, a place I hope people can say, ‘This is the place I go because they know who I am and what I like and they take care of me.’ ” Grandma Rosie would be proud.

all about rosie Rose Cadwell, for which Rosie’s Place is named, was a “good, ol’ redheaded spitfire,” said her granddaughter Debbie Borgerais. Many of her recipes are used in preparing the café’s dishes. “After my dad opened the business in St. Louis, Grandma could come and go as she pleased and cook and bake whatever she wanted or just walk around and talk to people. She never drove, so she’d just call and say, ‘Somebody come and get me.’ ” Around the family business well into her 70s, she died in 2007 at age 83. What does Debbie think her grandmother would say about opening a restaurant in her name? “She’s probably cracking up right now, saying, ‘What the heck are you thinking?’ ”

DISPATCHES » Team plan for building projects in place – Noblesville Schools is in the process of selecting its Design-Build teams for the two phases of the “Keeping Our Schools Strong” building projects that were approved in the May referendum. Design-Build is a new concept for Noblesville Schools. In the past, the school district has used the design-bidbuild process as its preferred project delivery system for its construction projects. While the design-bid-build process divides the design and construction contracts into two, Design-Build allows the project owner to work under one contract for both the design and construction services. The advantages are in cost savings, reduced risks for the school district, and higher quality projects. » Volunteers needed for redistricting committee – Noblesville Schools is seeking to serve on a redistricting committee that will recommend to the school board redistricting plans for the closing of Forest Hill Elementary School and the expansion of Hinkle Creek Elementary School for the 2011-2012 school year (Phase I) and the subsequent redistricting needed for the 2012-2013 school year (Phase II). Phase II changes planned for the fall of 2012-2013 include the opening of

When did MTV get good? A few snaps are in order Commentary By Jenna Larson I’d venture to say that a lot of teens these days religiously watch MTV. And what is MTV known for now? Well, trashy shows that set bad examples for the target age group, like Teen Mom and Jersey Shore, of course. I’ll admit it. I love them. But lately, I think MTV has been trying to class things up a bit. This past summer, a new series called If You Really Knew Me premiered. Captivated by the ads I saw, I tuned in. Boy, was I impressed. Snaps for MTV. In each episode, a group of mentors visits a high school with clique problems and hosts a Challenge Day. They bring the students together and have everyone share stories of their struggles, starting with, “If you really knew me…” Consequently, people start to understand each other. That kid doesn’t like bullying, but he’s had a hard life and doesn’t know what else to do. That girl hates herself even though she’s the prettiest and most popular girl in the senior class. By the end, everyone is crying and hugging each other. I don’t know how much of it is just because the cameras are rolling, but I’d like to

Current in Noblesville

believe that Challenge Day actually made such an impact on so many teenagers. A few weeks ago, the second season of another relatively new series premiered: The Buried Life. As an avid viewer, I can honestly say it’s my favorite show. The Buried Life follows Jonnie and Duncan Penn, Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood, and their purple bus Penelope. They go across the country asking people one question: “What do you want to do before you die?” Of course, they have their own list of 100 items, such as “59. Ask out the girl of your dreams” and “34. Pay for someone’s groceries.” But for every task they check off their list, they help a stranger accomplish a life goal as well. Both shows are incredible and inspiring, despite the channel on which they appear. Regardless, I applaud MTV for veering away from their stereotypical trash and showing something worthwhile.

You’d be surprised what preschoolers can do – and that’s a good thing PARENTING By Michele Grossman Moms and Dads, I’m going to let you in on a secret: Your preschoolers are capable of doing a lot more than they let on. It always amazes me to see one of my students outside the classroom in their family group; they look so little. And they often behave younger and less capable. But put them in a group of their peers, give them some responsibility, and they rise to the challenge. I have had a glass pitcher of water in my classroom for six years for the kids to help themselves to drinks. There have been some spills, most of it going on the tray under the pitcher, but no breakage. Many parents are nervous about their kids using markers or play dough at home, much less handling real glass on their own. Make the most of your little ones’ emerging abilities. It takes some patience and persistence to get them to put things where they belong, but it’s worth the effort in the long run. The biggest battle for most parents is toys. I heard a little boy tell a friend he couldn’t have him over to his house because “the playroom is too messy.” Sound familiar? If it is that messy, there are too many toys. Bag most of them up. (I believe in being upfront with kids, but in this case I would do this when the child is not watching.) Keep a few favorites at hand. Put the rest out of sight. Have your child put the toys away every eve-

ning. Let them know this is not a punishment; it is a way to manage the mess. Once they’ve made a real habit of tidying (without whining), you can add toys back to the selection. But consider keeping that number low; the sheer volume can be overwhelming to your child and may be too much to take care of. If you swap out toys occasionally, it feels like Christmas – a low-budget, stress-free Christmas! Michele Grossman is mother of three children who lives with her husband in Noblesville.

The time of their lives COMMENTARY By Becky Kapsalis Back in my day we learned shorthand to expedite the letters our bosses needed to get the word of their businesses out to the public. The words used were fully said, but the transcription was written in shorthand. Thoughts were captured and exacted fully. Today, it appears, everyone speaks and transcribes thoughts in quick-time, especially our kids. Even the political climate coerces us into shorthand conclusions, with little opportunity to look at the whole picture before coming to thought inducing decisions. Are you a shorthand parent? Do you speak to your kids expecting instant cooperation and results? Do you respond to your kids in shorthand? With our modern technology, as innovative as it is, are we shortchanging the lives of our kids in order to accommodate quick time lifestyles? There's a line in the book “The Secret Life of Bees” which reminds me of this. “The hardest thing to do is to choose what matters.” We need to think about this each and every time we respond to our children's needs. What matters more to our children? That the house

be spotless or they live with spotless values? That we spend long hours working to make more money or that we spend long hours working to make them better people? That we tell them how to behave or that we role-model the behavior we want them to learn? If you've chosen the latter of what matters in each of the above sentences, then you know this cannot be done in shorthand. Children are whole beings. They cannot be truncated or abbreviated. It takes years to develop a child into becoming a respectable and respected adult. This modern age technology is stealing our thought provoking time from our kids. Shorthand disciplines result in short-term solutions causing long-term consequences, consequences that will prevent our kids from being able to choose what matters. What matters here, in treating the whole child, is to choose to give our children the time of their lives. Hugs!

It takes years to develop a child into becoming a respectable and respected adult.

Intention versus expression GRAMMAR LESSON By Brandie Bohney I’m not a fan, in general, of intensifiers such as quite, really, or rather. In written work, they almost always function in the opposite way: rather than intensifying the adjective, they diminish it. For example, quite gorgeous is a phrase recently used by mother. The problem is that gorgeous is a strong adjective by itself. Consider it compared to several synonyms: pretty, lovely, beautiful, attractive. Which one would a woman most like to be described? By itself gorgeous, is a solid, specific, weighty description. But when you add a modifier such as quite, it takes a bit of the oomph out of the word you’re modifying with it. It’s an adverb sucker-punch. Think about how the meaning of gorgeous changes in the following contractions: rather gorgeous (not gorgeous, but just sort of that way), really gorgeous (it sounds like the writer or speaker is trying too hard to make you believe something), pretty gorgeous (the double definition of pretty makes this one laughable). When used to accentuate weaker words the change in meaning is much more subtle and therefore less offensive. Had Mom described the

12 | October 5, 2010

woman as quite lovely, I probably wouldn’t have even noticed. It doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily a great idea to use such adverbs with weaker adjectives; it’s just less noticeable than with the stronger adjectives. Bottom line: quite, really, rather, pretty, and their cohorts are nonspecific, and they take the specificity out of the adverbs they modify. They make the reference more vague, and in most cases, weaker. It’s better to choose a stronger word to begin with and leave the so-called intensifiers out of the mix. One strong word is almost always better than a string of weaker words trying to morph into something stronger. It is important to remember that quite can be used to mean two different things as an adverb: it can mean rather, and it can mean completely. When used to mean completely, its use is generally not disputed as weakening to whatever word it modifies: “She says she is ugly, but she is quite wrong.” Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher.

Luke Broyle Photo by j.frey photography

By Tia Nielsen Current in Noblesville Desiring to enter a short documentary in the inaugural Heartland High School Film Competition, Luke Broyles had a problem. Although the West Clay Elementary fifth grader has already held three premieres, with corporate sponsors, for his film trilogy “Swords & Shields,” the conundrum for the Heartland contest was age. Programming Coordinator Ray Mills noted that each entry had to have an adult sponsor. Broyles’ film “Michael,” about his special needs friend Michael McCauley, was submitted by his parents. Chuckling, Mills explained that when the Heartland team saw the submission, they said, “Wait. We know Luke.” “He didn’t qualify for the competition (not in high school),” added Mills, ”but we were very impressed with the film and decided to include him as an official selection during the High School Film Competition program as a look at a future filmmaker.”

Jeff Sparks, Heartland Film Festival founder, confirmed that Luke will become the youngest filmmaker to have ever screened at Heartland. The film will be shown four times during the 2010 Heartland Film Festival: Oct. 15 – 5:45 p.m., AMC Castleton Square Oct. 17 – 5:15 p.m., AMC Showplace Oct. 20 – 6 p.m., AMC Castleton Square Oct. 22 – 7:30 p.m., AMC Showplace 17 The documentary will be part of a package of short films run as a set during the 19th Heartland Film Festival, the flagship event of Indianapolis-based Heartland Truly Moving Pictures. The 10-day festival opens Oct. 15 and continues with screenings at the AMC Casteton Square 14 and AMC Showplace Indianapolis 17 through Oct. 23. The event’s awards ceremony is Oct. 16.

RECIPES By Molly Herner Many people think that potato soup should be “loaded” with things like cheese, sour cream, bacon and chives. I disagree. A good potato soup, if made right, stands on its own deliciously with just a hunk of buttered French bread.

Jackie Chan as “Mr. Han” and Jaden Smith as “Dre Parker” in Columbia Pictures’ “The Karate Kid.

DVDs By Chris Lloyd First of all, the style of fighting depicted in the remake of “The Karate Kid” is explicitly stated to be kung fu, not karate. At one point American expatriate Dre (Jaden Smith) even corrects his mother, who has brought them to China for her job, when she calls it karate. And the Mr. Miyagi role from the original film has shifted from Japanese to Chinese, with Jackie Chan playing Mr. Han, the local handyman hiding a bowl of whoop-tush behind his sad, enigmatic facade. In fact, in everywhere but America, this movie was titled, “The Kung Fu Kid.” Directed by Dutch filmmaker Harald Zwart from a script by rookie screenwriter Christopher Murphey, the reboot does a good job of updating the story while keeping the bones of the conflict intact.

Smith, who seems to be channeling the hipyet-unthreatening mannerisms of superstar dad Will, is a likeable presence as Dre, target of the local bullies. After he begins instruction under Mr. Han, the film builds to a big showdown with his tormenter at a kung fu competition that’s a virtual copy of the first film – right down to the sadistic opposing teacher instructing one of his thugs to cripple Dre’s knee, requiring him to pull off a fantastic one-legged maneuver. It’s feel-good pap, but well-done and entertaining. Grade: B Read more of Chris Lloyd’s review of current films and DVD’s at www.captaincritic.blogspot.com or www.TheFilmYap.com.

Do I reupholster?

INTERIORS By Vicky Early This question arrives at my door almost daily: “Should I reupholster my existing furniture or purchase new?” The answer is always a definitive, yes and no! The answer is a decisive yes when the piece in consideration is an antique in good condition or a family piece with sentimental qualities. The answer is an unequivocal no when the furnishing is from a chain store that excels in marketing a lifestyle but falls short of offering quality. The engineered wood and plastics used to fabricate such furniture doom it to a short life span. Everything else falls into the other category, it depends. Even when a piece of furniture is manufactured by a quality fabricator, there are still a multitude of variables to be considered. The style of the piece is the obvious factor. If a chair looks like an early American glider with a plaid fabric, it will still look like an early American glider in a new linen blend. The age of the piece is a critical factor. While a frame may be intact, foam that has broken down will add considerable cost to the final product. If all the factors about the piece are favorable, reupholstery offers you and your designer more control of the creative process.  Mixing fabrics and adding details such as fringe and

gimp for a truly custom look is far easier to manage if handled locally.  There is a wide world of fabrics appropriate for upholstery available that you will not find hanging in the upholstery area of most large furniture stores. When a client is looking to reupholster as the economical solution to furnishing a home, we encourage them to total all the cost factors.  Reupholstery for a sofa can run easily upwards of $1,200 for labor alone.  A good upholstery fabric can run $50 per yard. Multiply that by the 20 yards you’ll need! Repair materials such as replacement foam, batting, and new springs can cause the final bill to soar. When it is realized that a quality hardwood sofa in a medium grade fabric can be purchased for a comparable price, the decision scale begins to wobble.  The choice between reupholstering or a new purchase has a tipping point that must be addressed on an individual basis. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel. If you have an interior design question, please contact artichokedesigns@aol. com.

Ginger reduces inflammation and speeds healing of damaged tissues. Grapine is a powerful antioxidant and, taken over time, will reduce inflammation and ease chronic pain. If Relief is another favorite that contains both pain relief and healing components. Some topical favorites are Deep Relief, a combination essential oil, and Tei Fu Oil.

pain and carpal tunnel pain. How about foods? Anyone who is experiencing pain from inflammation and especially fibromyalgia should remove all aspects of wheat from their diet immediately. Wheat is very inflammatory and removing it will generally give some amount of immediate relief. That means white bread, whole grain breads, crackers, pasta, pastries made with wheat flour. Instead, opt for breads and pastas made from brown rice, spelt and quinoa. Make sure there is no wheat listed on the label. There are also many cereals that do not contain wheat. As a naturopath I want to help you with pain , and I am primarily concerned with the underlying cause. While eating wheat may not be the cause of your pain, it is definitely a contributing factor.

studies have been performed on the hoodia gordinii extract showing there is some evidence for its effect. One 28 day study looked at overweight participants taking a gram of hoodia gordonii a day. Participants were instructed to eat a balanced breakfast and take a multivitamin in addition to the hoodia, but keep other eating and exercise habits unchanged. Most of the participants reported their caloric intake dropped to less than half within a few days after starting hoodia, and they didn’t report side effects such as jitteriness or insomnia. They lost, on average, 3.3 percent of their body weight due, which amounted to a median loss of 10 pounds. Other studies have also shown daily caloric intake drops by about 1000 after two weeks. So if you are having trouble sticking to a diet, hoodia gordonii may just be the trick you need. It is a natural product with generations of use, but it is best to check with your physician before starting a new diet and taking a new supplement.

Hoodia may help curb your appetite NUTRITION By Laura Marenco The San Bushmen natives of South Africa have used a native succulent plant called Hoodia Gordonii for many generations to suppress appetite and control thirst during long hunting trips. So what’s the hype about hoodia now? It’s all about weight loss. Losing weight is dependent on one thing, calories in versus calories out. While the concept is simple, most people aren’t able to stick to a diet. This is what makes hoodia extracts so appealing. An independent study was performed at Brown University Medical School in Rhode Island that concluded hoodia gordonii affects nerve cells in the hypothalamus, which monitor blood glucose levels and helps regulate appetite. It is this affect on the hypothalamus that makes your brain think you’re full when not. When we don’t eat while dieting, the hypothalamus sends an appetite signal as our glucose levels fall. Hoodia is thought to work by releasing a chemical compound similar to glucose, but one that appears to be 100 times stronger. The brain receives this as a signal of being satiated and decreases our appetite. Further research into the effect of hoodia for weight loss to be more conclusive, but some

"Almost everyone knows a person whose life has been touched by breast cancer in one way or another. It is a prevalent disease that continues to thrive.

FITNESS By April Conard While watching TV I came across a commercial for these great pair of calves that turn into a great pair of thighs that turn into some great…um…glutes. I was thinking that I wish my buns looked like that. It was an advertisement for these new “toning” shoes that seem to be all the craze. Do they work? I’ve been tempted to try them – even though I believe this is another “gimmick” for those who don’t want to actually work out but want that body. This may not be right up there with the jogging suit made of aluminum foil to burn fat and the electric belt that tones abs, but is it legitimate? The company that makes this shoe will tell you about the studies done and the amazing results participants saw. It may even show you the before-and-after photo but we all know the tricks digital photography and Photoshopping these days. Naturally, I’m skeptical. Before there were Stairmasters and elliptical

machines, there was walking, the safe and universal way for anyone to improve their health. Who knows, adding these magic shoes may not improve your body and even could possibly harm it. Having good form when walking or doing any activity is crucial. Who’s to say that these shoes do not add to or create an injury? They have not been around long enough to see how they affect the body in the long run. If you do decide to invest in these shoes, I recommend you do not wear them during any physical activity other than walking. And as much as I would love to believe that model on TV looks like that because of a special shoe, deep down I know that only sweat and hard work can really give you results.

Benefits of acupressure

Massage By Sally Feldman Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. More than 5,000 years ago, the Chinese discovered that pressing certain points on the body relieved pain where it occurred, and benefited other parts of the body more remote from the pain and the pressure point. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force, sometimes called qi or chi, to aid in healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle, but firm pressure of hands and feet. Acupressure continues to be the most effective method for self-treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand. Acupressure can be effective in helping: • relieve headaches

22 | October 5, 2010

• eye strain • sinus problems • neck pain • backaches • arthritis • muscle aches • tension due to stress • ulcer pain • menstrual cramps • lower backaches • constipation In acupressure, local symptoms are considered an expression of the condition of the body as a whole. The healing touch of acupressure reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax deeply. Go! Fight! Win! Let the massages begin!

COMMENTARY By David Cain Once upon a time I subscribed to a magazine. I didn’t subscribe because I was interested but instead because the subscription deal was too good to pass up. Who would ever imagine that I could get a subscription to something that appeared interesting and would be delivered to my doorstep each month, in advance, for only $10 a year? It’s a monumental bargain. I remember checking boxes and ordering multiple subscriptions. After all, it’s only $10 a year and they bill you later. This webpage was like catnip for business cats. I took the bait and frolicked in this checkbox wonderland for just enough time to unknowingly obligate me for years to come. After that fateful, box-checking day I would periodically see a charge hit my credit card for $49. I’d be mad for as long as I could remember it. Like a gym membership that’s more than six months old, I was ready to quit. I didn’t know how they could continue to charge me even though my subscription was done. Yesterday, the answer arrived on the way to the trash. On what has become my monthly ritual of walking magazines to their landfill transportation, I noticed the cover was different. It was a non-glossy finish and had a different message. It said, “Important Advance Notice” on the front

and in the fine print it mentioned, “to our valued automatic renewal customers”. Finally, the code was cracked! I now knew how the billing worked. I didn’t need to wait for my credit card to expire to get out of this billing conundrum; I could simply log on and cancel at any time. What a breakthrough. I felt like I’d just discovered the cure for hair loss. I logged on to the most inconsiderate system ever created only to find that the cancel subscription feature wasn’t working. I’d need to call them. That inconvenient, non-functioning cancel button probably made this company millions. Now I had to call on principle. I get it; businesses are in business to make money. I am too. However, sometimes the logic of hoodwinking customers to get to the bottom line would seem a poor strategy. Instead of a confusing billing cycle, and endless hurdles to getting out of the arrangement, how about better the content and add value? Usually that’s the problem. If you provide value to the customer, you get continuing business. If you don’t, you lose it. David Cain works at MediaSauce, a digital media and online marketing company in Carmel.

Why go to the cemetery? For a class, of course GENEALOGY By Darla Kinney Scoles “A century ago,” writes historian David Heighway in a local magazine, “the town of Fishers was rocked by the involvement of some its citizens in a gruesome scandal. The perpetrators of a rash of grave thefts had been arrested, and although the person who attracted most of the media attention was a grave robber from Indianapolis, his confession had led to a local farmer and a respected doctor.  The body-snatching trials of 1902 and 1903 put the words “ghoul” and “grave robber” on everyone’s lips and filled the columns of the newspapers.  While the Indiana body snatchers have since been forgotten, they did enter into local folklore and profoundly changed the laws and procedures for medical schools in the state. “Grave-robbing, the subject of countless horror movies, was a real-life concern for late-19th century Hoosiers.  As in the movies, the object of the crime was not any valuable object that may have been in the grave, but rather the bodies themselves.  Also called body snatching or resurrection, this was often the only method for medical schools to obtain subjects for teaching

their students. It was finally ended only after lurid criminal trials forced the state government to take direct action.” Well, that’s one reason folks have gone to the cemetery, but here’s a better one. Hamilton East Public Library’s Nancy Massey will conduct a cemetery-related genealogy class Oct. 16 in the facility’s North Meeting Room. Reading markers and records, finding plots, and understanding cemetery types will be covered in the indoor portion of the event from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. At 2 p.m. the class will reconvene at Crownland Cemetery for a personal tour with Heighway himself. This class is ideal for any level, from the beginner to the more experienced researcher. Registration is required, so, visit www.hepl.lib. in.us/ and then watch a few body-snatcher movies to get in the mood! Darla Kinney Scoles is a freelance journalist living in Noblesville.

Master bath remodel: Creating new walk-in shower REMODELING By Larry Greene BACKGROUND: This home located in the Village of West Clay in Carmel was built about 10 years ago and included the original master bathroom with a small shower and cultured marble tub. The owners wanted a new large walk-in shower and were prepared to sacrifice the tub if needed. After going through the design phase, it was determined that indeed the tub area needed to be taken over to allow a new enlarged shower. WALK-IN-SHOWER: The new walk-in shower was enlarged to be approximately 4’ by 7’. This large size allowed a walk-in shower without a glass door. The shower floor includes new Nokomis Bone mosaic tile while the shower walls include 12”x18” light walnut honed tile with two soap/shampoo recesses and a angled foot rest. The shower walls are 60” and 84” high with a travertine cap on top of each wall. In order to let in more natural light to the shower, the 60” high wall was finished off with two fixed panels of 3/8” krystal glacier glass with brushed nickel glass clips. CREATING MORE SPACE: An existing dry walled linen closet was removed to create more floor space. In addition, the existing

toilet was moved to a new location to allow for a new privacy half wall. PLUMBING & ELECTRICAL CHANGES: New Grohe shower fixture upgrades include a rainfall shower head and new handheld shower head on a separate wall. Electrical upgrades include two new shower recessed can lights and a new exhaust fan. CLOSET CHANGES: The existing carpet was removed in the closet and the new floor tile was extended into the closet. The existing white painted shelving and rods were replaced with new cherry stained shelving and custom closet organizers. New painted crown molding was added in the closet and the existing double doors were removed to create a new wider cased opening. Finally, a new decorative hanging light fixture was installed in the center of the remodeled closet. Larry Greene is owner of Case Handyman & Remodeling.

Changing colors Transformation of the façade on the historic Uptown Café on the Courthouse Square in downtown Noblesville continues with the change in the former red and blue color scheme. The 127-year-old building, owned by local businessman Jay Merrell, is the beneficiary of the city’s façade improvement program. The changeover will include the removal of the awning and the addition of a new front door and windows. The popular café, owned and operated by chef Kristi Whitesell, will remain open on weekends only during the construction through the end of the month. Photo by Zach Dunkin.

Is your living room tired of you? Here are seven tips for new look HOME DECORATING By Sue Pelley If you’re tired of your living room – or your living room is tired of you, here are seven helpful steps you might want to consider in giving this often used room a brand new look. COLOR. The color of your new room should be harmonious – in pleasing proportion and selected with regard for your family likes and dislikes. COMFORT. Comfort is key to selecting sofas and chairs. If you want your room to be totally hospitable, be sure to select well-proportioned and comfortable seating. FURNITURE. Be sure to group your furniture to allow talk to flow easily. It’s also important that your furniture be adaptable to different situations. Be sure there is ample space for extra seating when you must accommodate an unusually large number of people. Arrange your furniture so that it’s pleasant from which to watch TV, listen to the radio, or even work on the computer if needed. Consider traffic lanes carefully so that there will be no awkwardness in moving around the room. Also, give some thought to coziness as well as the aesthetics of your furniture. A home without warmth, no matter how tasteful, can have an adverse effect on most people FABRICS. Be sure that your fabric selections are pleasing in texture as well as harmonious in color, with good wearing and maintenance qualities for the sake of you and your budget. LIGHTING. A lighting plan must be created

GARDENING By Holly Lindzy There isn’t a living being on this earth that can survive without a little breathing room. Oxygen is vital to life and nothing proves that quite like the bald cypress tree (Taxodium distichum). Passing one recently, I marveled at its ability to survive. Primarily a swamp resident where the oxygen is virtually nil, the bald cypress’ roots send knobs (technically, knees) above the waterline to receive the oxygen missing below and rest of the roots take up the water that the plant needs to grow. Nifty! Bald cypress can grow just about anywhere, however, they will just do so without putting out the knobs and look much like any other tree. Sometimes mistaken for an evergreen, the bald cypress is actually a deciduous tree (it loses its leaves during the winter). So, it can look a bit like an evergreen that has died for much of the winter and then spring to life once winter has passed. But at the same time it is a conifer… which means it will bear cones. Huh? Even though it is extremely adaptable to our

www.youarecurrent.com

mucky, clay soils, I’ve seen it growing in the median of a four-lane road, and I’ll bet it will outgrow that space. They can be 70 feet tall with a spread of 25 feet or more, and with its pyramidal shape, that spread will be near the ground. Now that’s a big tree! Too bad more plants don’t have the ability to put out “knees” to take in oxygen. Then, maybe more would survive over-watering and standing water situations. But most plants need to take in some air around their roots, which is why it is crucial to watch water intake with your plants in and out of your home. Houseplants are infamous for dying from poor drainage in decorative pots. Always check the top inch of the soil for moisture before adding water. Just a helpful hint…since not every plant is as lucky as the bald cypress.

You are what you eat HUMOR By Mike Redmond No doubt you have been wondering why a fellow such as me, handsome, urbane, talented and most of all deluded, would choose to spend his Octobers bouncing around on a wagon full of straw, indulging my inner agriculturalist. Simple, it’s fun. This meets the priority I have set out for myself as I have gotten older and wiser: whatever I do must be fun. Life is just too short to waste doing things you don’t enjoy. Anyway, back to the farm. I spend my Octobers working at Waterman’s Farm Market leading tours at the Fall Harvest Festival. Now, I don’t want to turn this into a free ad for my place of employment, and I don’t want to insult any of the other good, sincere pumpkin providers in central Indiana. But I will tell you that this job meets another requirement I set for myself: doing things that are of some good for people. I’ve never been shy about doing what I wanted for my own selfish reasons, but now I want to do for others when I can, especially since the big green bean company cares about the green, and not mostly the bean. I grew up in the country, in LaGrange County. We knew what it meant to eat well, and the

source our good eating was about 50 feet out our back door. We knew the delights of freshpicked produce, all picked minutes before we sat down to eat. Typical story, I never really realized how good I had it until I left home and fell into the world of high sodium and fat contents, tonguetwisting preservatives and mysterious sources in the food I ate. In time, I became so disgusted with the quality of the food-like substances I was consuming that I sought out something that would take me back to the good, clean fresh food. In a long and roundabout way, that led to me to telling people where their food comes from and why it is best to eat local. It doesn’t have to be 50 feet out the back door, but in the area is just as good. I found lots of people who wanted to eat that way but didn’t know where to begin. And that is why I spend Octobers bouncing around in a wagon telling people about farming. Well, and because it’s fun.

Praise is meaningless unless God is in the center of it FAITH By Janna Lynas Like many families in Noblesville, you can find mine on the sidelines of a football or basketball game or even a swimming pool balcony this fall. Our kids are active in sports, and we find ourselves in the midst of a busy sports season. My children are young and even new to the sport in which they are involved, so they get lots of instruction with a heavy dose of encouragement to keep trying. Maybe I am over-thinking this one, but I sometimes worry I might be praising their efforts a little too much, maybe letting the idea form in their little minds that they really are great. I want them to be confident, but not over the top. I want them to know where the praise is due for anything they do well. My husband read Proverbs 27:2 this morning: “Let someone else praise you, not your own mouth - a stranger, not your own lips.” I chewed on this most of the day before reading a newsletter highlighting a high school that

honors students from opposing schools at their awards banquet. The coaches encourage their student-athletes to notice their opposition, not just for defensive or offensive measures, but to honor them for their sportsmanship at the end of the season, placing honor on their opponents and not themselves. That’s an awesome lesson in developing character in our children. So often we want to be recognized for what we’ve done, but the truth is without God, we can’t do anything of lasting value or worth. All of our deeds must have Him in the center to be good or pure. When we realize this, we are free to step back and give Him all the glory for what He does through us. The end result is a stunning example of humility and a reminder of our nothingness without our Father. Janna Lynas is a stay-at-home mom living in Noblesville with her minister husband Derek and three children. You may contact her at faith@currentnoblesville.com.

So often we want to be recognized for what we’ve done, but the truth is without God, we can’t do anything of lasting value or worth.

Sin and the world’s shortest book

SPIRITUALITY By Bob Walters What is the world’s shortest book? It’s not Jude, the Bible’s shortest book. The world’s shortest book is “Sins for Which Jesus Christ Did Not Die.” Jesus, you see, died for them all (2 Corinthians 5:15, 1 Peter 3:18). The human race is a motley lot. We seek Godly heights yet often stumble into the lowest of pits due to either our own sin or the fallenness of the world around us. To quote my worship minister friend Shockley Flick, “We are sinful, rebellious, willful, demanding, slow to learn, resistant to change, egocentric and sometimes just not very pleasant to be around. “Yet,” Flick said, “Jesus Christ, through His grace and love, reached out and lifted us up from our squalor to walk with Him.” As Christians we are taught that we must deal with our sin, but sometimes forget that Jesus Christ has already dealt with our sin, all of it. Every sinful thing we’ve done, are doing and will do is why Jesus died on the cross. For the sake of our eternal salvation, our sin was forgiven, taken away, removed and erased. The “debt” was cancelled on the cross. Despite this Biblical truth, non-believers scoff

at Christ and salvation. Even some Christians cling to their own sin, wallow in their guilt, and speak somberly of their – or accusingly of someone else’s “unresolved sin.” But that makes me want to ask, “What sins could anyone possibly have that Christ didn’t die for?” In God’s eyes, Jesus Christ already resolved our sin by His sacrifice on the cross. That forgiveness, that grace, is a gift for which humanity did not ask, but is a gift freely given to anyone who in faith believes and declares that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God and trusts Him as Lord and Savior. Faith is the key. Trying to resolve one’s own sin, with effort or works, is a fool’s errand, a canard, an oxymoron, an impossibility. We can’t resolve sin. Jesus can, and did. Sin is death in each of our lives until we declare our faith in Jesus Christ, confess our sin, and live our life dedicated to His Glory rather than our effort, happiness and comfort. That’s the long and short of it. Bob Walters (www.believerbob. blogspot.com, email rlwcom@aol. com) figured out years ago you can’t hide anything from Jesus. Confess, repent, worship, try to do better. Above all, have faith.
