An apolitical politician? Founded Sept. 15, 2009, at Noblesville, IN Vol. III, No. 4 Copyright 2011. Current Publishing, LLC All Rights Reserved. 1 South Range Line Road, Suite 220 Carmel, IN 46032


Managing Editor – Robert Herrington / 489.4444 ext. 204 Associate Editor – Terry Anker Copy Editor – Lindsay Eckert Art Director – Zachary Ross / 489.4444


It doesn’t seem possible, does it? A politician that isn’t all that political? We have one in our midst, and perhaps Hamilton County could learn something by watching (and listening to) Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. This man, who is seeking his second term in next month’s general election, is the antithesis of what many expect to see and hear in a campaigning official. His low-key, easy-going and city-centric demeanor (get this!) actually nearly cost him the primary election back in May. He wouldn’t “stoop,” as he put it, to playing his opponent’s “down-and-dirty” political games on the campaign trail. Come election night nearly six months ago, the race he was running proved to be a nail-biter. He said, as he accepted his victory, that he never has been political and never wants to be. All Cook wants to do is serve his city – and win re-election, naturally. There are several candidates, present and past, that could tear a page out of his playbook and comport themselves and their campaigns in similar fashion. We’re not so naïve as to believe that ever will roundly happen, and so, for the meantime, Cook is something of a lone wolf in that regard. And it is our position that his is the proper stance.

Fall for all

It is our position that fall is a time for family, football and franks. Whether you’re leaping into a pile of leaves with your kids, keeping your fingers crossed for the Colts or sipping hot (or cold) cider by a tailgate the crisp season is one that’s activities vary as much as the season’s colorful and changing landscape. Hamilton County is at its picturesque peak in the weeks of October and we believe Current readers should celebrate more than Halloween, one of our favorite holidays, by the way. Challenge yourself to take on the fall activities before winter rakes up the season. We encourage you to get lost in a corn maze, face your fears at one of the many haunted-house tours and put those trick-or-treat bags through a practice run by filling them with fresh produce from farmers markets in Hamilton County. Fill the fall air with the aroma of bonfires and fired-up grills, and pocket your smartphones for a few hours to take a drive on some of Hamilton County’s tree-lined roads for nature’s most colorful show.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Tucker wins Hare’s initial teacher contest Our first Teacher of the Month contest, sponsored by Hare Chevrolet, elicited worthy candidates, most of all Ken Tucker, a sixthgrade teacher at Noblesville Intermediate School. We congratulate Tucker – and Hare for its similar commitment to education in our city – on his award. The letter of nomination from Joel and Michelle Goudy, parents of Mark Goudy, cited Tucker for establishing a family-like environment in his classroom and for celebrating the uniqueness of each of his students. “His excitement for learning and life is contagious to his students,” the Goudys wrote in their letter. We encourage students and parents throughout Noblesville to carefully consider the opportunity to honor their favorite educators each month and ask that submissions be sent to ••• It was a turn-away event – for the latecoming companies that tried to become exhibitors at last week’s Hamilton County Job Fair. More than 80 firms, each required to have at least five positions that had to be filled “now,” were on hand to fill the show. It was a stunning achievement by the Noblesville Economic Development Dept., the staging of this event, which was its second. Running out of space is a good problem to have.

Capital flowing back into the market? I certainly approve

COMMENTARY By Jordan Fischer We’re seeing mixed feelings coming out of September’s “Small Business Optimism Index,” published regularly by the National Federation of Independent Business. While the report shows a drop in small business confidence in the future of the economy to 88.1 percent, it also shows a two-point increase in reported capital outlays over the past six months, and a one-point increase in planned capital outlays over the next three to six months. We especially like to see those latter two numbers increasing. Small business is the engine to our economy, and the one thing all sides can agree upon is that prospective entrepreneurs need access to capital to get that engine going. Increases in capital outlays show that access beginning to increase again as banks begin approving more small business loans. Speaking of banks – not everyone’s favorite subject over the last several years – we applaud a recent decision by KeyBank to open up $5 billion in capital to small business owners over the next three years. One of the bank’s executives said she’s seen “cautious optimism” among small business own-

ers. We’re glad to hear it. Being a small business publication, new businesses entering the market means more readers, and more stories, for us. We also think cautious optimism is just what banks should be looking for in loan applicants. KeyBank reports its new lending program will come hand-in-hand with in-person financial review, workshops, and new “business intensive” branches. While we don’t think there should be too many obstacles between an entrepreneur and starting his or her dream business, in light of the market crash, which was caused in large part by approval of unqualified loan applications, we are glad to see some additional scrutiny, and particularly support, be offered to entrepreneurs prior to their grand opening. That being said, we’re looking forward to capital flowing back into small business. We recently moved into a new office across the street, and we’d love to see our old space filled with new neighbors.

Magical trip to the kingdom

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson M-I-C. K-E-Y. M-O-you know what? I am exhausted. Although I just arrived home from a girls-only weekend at Disney World, I have recovered enough to share my experiences. I say “recovered” because the Orlando-based world of Disney is far from relaxing. Regardless, I will never forget my 72-hour magical adventure. Here are some of the highlights: Going all mommy dearest at Space Mountain. I channeled Joan Crawford and forced my 7-year-old to ride the scary indoor roller coaster. She usually loves thrill rides, and I was certain once she got going she would rank it as an alltime favorite. I was wrong. She screamed the entire four minutes, prompting the gentleman in front of me to double check I was not shaving her skin off with a potato peeler. Dining with the princesses. Yes, this is expensive. Yes, it’s a bit cheesy. But I got to meet Belle, Snow White and Ariel. I mean, they actually talked to me! “Well, hello, your highness,” lilted Cinderella. “How are you enjoying your stay in my castle?” Hee hee hee. Your highness. Taking one for the team at the Mad Tea Party teacups. My youngest niece turned out to be too short to ride the puke-inducing torture bowls, and her mom worried she’d get a migraine. So I sucked it up and volunteered my chaperone services, knowing this could be a game-ender for me. I can get motion sick in bed,

so imagine me spinning in several different directions in high humidity on an empty stomach. I swayed like a drunk for several minutes after exiting that hideous ride. Bibbity-bobbity-blek! Flying high on Soaring. Our flight home was bumped up two hours, which meant we only had about an hour to spend at Epcot. The strategy? Arrive when the gates open and sprint for Soaring, a simulated hang-gliding attraction with hour-long waits. Listening to my two girls giggle with delight as we virtually flew over farmlands, ocean and glaciers was the best moment of the trip for me. Witnessing a miracle. A woman collapsed not far from where we were observing young padawans duel Darth Vader that’s when another woman rushed to help. She began vigorous CPR and after several minutes, was able to bring the heart attack victim back to consciousness. The passerby is a trauma nurse. She literally saved this woman’s life, right in front of us. Now, that’s magic. We walked miles in the 90-degree temperatures, fought crowds, and suffered our fair share of tantrums and diarrhea, but it was still an amazing and memorable trip. P-E-A. C-EOUT. M-O-U-S-E.

Photo by Robert Herrington

St.Vincent breaks ground on Fishers hospital expansion By Robert Herrington St.Vincent Health, along with Fishers, Noblesville and Hamilton County officials, broke ground Monday on an 110,000-square foot expansion of St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast and unveiled the facility’s new name – St.Vincent Fishers Hospital. The expansion will convert the facility to a 40-bed inpatient hospital. St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast, 13914 Southeastern Parkway, will focus on wellness – women’s health and family health – for patients and families of Fishers, Noblesville and Carmel communities. The hospital is located just across I-69 from Noblesville’s Hamilton Town Center. “It’s an attraction – an additional attraction to the Corporate Campus,” said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. “We’re all one large community in Hamilton County. Being where we are with the demographics of all of Hamilton County cities, healthcare is important.” St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital president Kyle DeFur said the expansion will “meet a growing patient demand.” He said the facility will provide more “close to home” healthcare options to Hamilton County residents. “We’re proud to celebrate the move with our neighbors and friends,” DeFur said. DeFur said the inpatient expansion will encompass 30 medical/surgical beds, 10 medical observation beds and 10 labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum rooms. Development plans also include spa-like amenities, indoor and outdoor dining, and

convenient 24-hour room service for patients. “Since the opening of St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast, we have responded to the healthcare needs of the community by delivering convenient, quality care and extraordinary patient experiences,” said Kevin Speer, system vice president and chief strategy officer of St.Vincent Health. “The expansion of the medical center to include inpatient services will ensure our focus on women’s health and family health as the market continues to grow. We have listened to the community, so it is imperative that we grow by expanding our services and partnerships for the community.” In 2008, the faith-based health system opened St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast – Indiana’s first freestanding emergency department. The 120,000-square-foot facility has an ambulatory surgery center, all-digital imaging center, and a medical office building including primary care offices, a pediatric and adult sleep disorders center, rehabilitation, laboratory and mental health services. “For 25 years, St.Vincent Health has had a strong healthcare presence in Hamilton County. St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast is one of 20 healthcare facilities,” said Speer. “We are strategically positioned to provide healthcare needs for surrounding communities.” The expansion is projected to create more than 200 new jobs with the opportunity for more as the hospital continues to grow. Construction is expected to be complete by 2013.

Family turns tragedy into foundation to positively affect breast cancer patients


tournament in October and “A Night for Magical Moments” in May. May’s inaugural event raised $73,000. Even more than the funds collected, Luann was surprised by the more than 400 attendees that came. “We were thrilled. It’s an outpouring of love for her and what we’re doing,” she said. “Everything that’s donated goes to recipients. We aren’t paying anyone on the board.” Steve said he hopes that in four years the Megan The Ot t Family – Lauren S. Ott Foundation name , from lef t, Me gan , Kathe rine and Tom. comes immediately to forefront of people’s mind when talking about breast cancer in Hamilton and surrounding counties. “Hopefully, someday we are able to fund research and help get involved or volunteer can call 432-8950 or visit www.meganfind a cure,” he said.

Those looking to wants to help,” Luann said. Photo provided by Luann

By Robert Herrington On July 14, 2008, Megan Ott, 32, and 32 weeks pregnant and the mother of a 3-year-old daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer. Three weeks later, Lauren was born and the Ott family – Tom, Megan, Katherine and Lauren – began their journey through life as a young family fighting the devastating effects of the insidious disease. Knowing firsthand how horrific the emotional, physical, and mental anguish of this battle is for young women and their families, Megan and Tom founded the Megan S. Ott Foundation, Inc in March 2010 – a month before her death. “It’s extremely important that such good has come from it,” said Luann Snyder, Megan’s mother. “We know this is continuing her legacy. It helps keep us going without her.” “It’s not a feeling you want anyone to understand. As devastating bad as this is something good come from it,” added Megan’s father, Steve. “Hopefully, someday this will be a legacy her two girls can take over. The Susan G. Komen Foundation started the same way.” The philanthropic foundation’s initial charter is to provide women, men and their families who are suffering through the battle of breast cancer a source to bring critical assistance and sunshine to their lives. The foundation’s No. 1 priority is to bring as much joy, happiness and laughter into their lives as possible. “We tailor our grants to each individual’s needs, nothing is cookie cutter. We do whatever needs to be done for them,” said Steve. “Whether it’s getting the family year passes to the Indianapolis Zoo or paying the electric bill in the winter – whatever their needs are.” The foundation helps provide assistance – whether that need is economic or sunshine. Unfortunately, Luann said that the recession has caused most of the grants to be economic-based. She said funds have been used to help pay hospital, medical and utility bills, Christmas presents, vacations, mortgage payments, school supplies for children, weekend getaways and gift cards. “I’m very proud of the foundation. It gets to know recipients, their needs, and customizes something that helps their family live better,” said Tom. “Megan would be proud and thankful. Megan wanted to help people going through difficult situations like she went through.” Since the foundation began a year ago, it has helped 38 families. The Snyders said referrals come from Community Health Network and Riverview Hospital. “If we helped 38 this year hopefully next year we can help 70,” said Luann. “I’m more surprised we had the amount of money to do it. We’ve been very, very blessed on how much money we’ve already raised and how much we can give to recipients.” “What’s transpired in the last year has been incredible,” added Steve. “So many people are giving so many hours of volunteering to work within the foundation. . . A year ago we would not have envisioned we are as far along as we are with our recipients.” The foundation has 12 members on its board of directors and more than 80 volunteers. Corporate sponsors of the foundation include Farmers Bank and Community Health Network/Community Breast Care. “I’m very confident Megan is proud of what we’ve done, what we’ve accomplished and the people we’ve been able to help,” said Steve. “She’d be overwhelmed and thankful we’ve been able to do that.” The foundation hosts two fundraisers each year – the kickball

Kickball Tournament Megan S. Ott’s legacy lives on with her husband, Tom; their children, Katherine, 6, and Lauren, 3; her family members; numerous friends and her foundation. Her legacy will expand Saturday as a bouncy red ball rolls across the artificial grass at the Bobby Mills’ Field of Dreams at Hazel Dell Elementary School, 3025 Westfield Road, Noblesville. In 2010, the community along with Ott’s family and friends shed tears of sorrow and joy as they came together for the inaugural fundraising event of the foundation she helped to establish before breast cancer claimed her life in April. The double-elimination tournament begins at noon with the opening ceremony, including Karen Hensel from WISH-TV, with the championship game at 5 p.m. Ott’s widower and daughters will roll the ceremonial first ball. The kickball tournament idea came from Hazel Dell Elementary School Counselor Lauri Waldner. While a teacher at Hazel Dell, Ott

thought it would be a great end-of-the-year activity to take her students out to the baseball diamond for a kickball game. “Bobby Mills, for whom the fields are now named, had just finished preparing the fields for the beginning of the baseball season. Megan saw no harm in her fun escapade; needless to say, Bobby didn’t share her view,” Waldner said. Waldner added that Hazel Dell staff members would tease Ott about her innocent quest for fun, knowing, however, that this was one of the many reasons she was so loved by her students. “She (Waldner) thought it would be a wonderful idea for the foundation,” said Luann Synder, Megan’s mother. “It has gotten a great response and we’re thrilled.” A dinner and silent auction will be held at 6 p.m. at Pebble Brook Golf Club in Noblesville. Those interested in attending can purchase tickets at the door. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children ages 8-12. The kickball tournament is being sponsored by Ray Skillman Northeast Mazda car dealership, and Sweet & Savory in Carmel is sponsoring the dinner.

Cops & Kids flag football game Oct. 18 By Robert Herrington It’s generally a bad idea to run from the police, but that’s the game plan Oct. 18 during the 7th Annual F.O.P. Cops & Kids (formerly called Clothe-A-Child) flag football game. The event will feature two games with 20-minute running clock halves and a five minute halftime. The first game will feature a “powder puff” matchup of Noblesville High School students taking on Hamilton Heights High School starting at 6:30 p.m. at Hare Chevrolet Field, 300 N. 17th St. That game will be followed by the next installment of the rivalry between the NHS juniors and seniors and a group of faculty and Noblesville Police Department officers. “A lot of students participate in the past and come up at the beginning of the school year to ask when the game is. They’re excited,” said NHS business teacher Dan Nicholson. “It creates a great atmosphere between students and faculty/cops. Not all the time is the interaction positive. This shows we are different when we aren’t teaching or in the school. It is a fun, competitive environment.” The idea for the event came from NPD Officer Matt Johnston, who also serves as a resource officer at the high school, as a way to incorporate the sports marketing class with the annual F.O.P. “Shop with a Cop” program. “It’s been very successful in raising funds to help that great cause out,” said NHS business

teacher Dan Nicholson. Admission is $3 and raffle tickets and concession stands will be open. All proceeds from sponsors, admission and concessions will go to fund holiday shopping trips with police officers and local children – the Noblesville FOP through NHS and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department through Hamilton Heights. The NPD “Shop with a Cop” program allows officers to shop with parents and children to ensure they have proper winter clothing and a special toy under the Christmas tree. “One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards the cops-and-kids program. Anything we raise will go back to local families in need in the county,” Nicholson said. In addition to raising funds, Nicholson said the game is a great opportunity for hands-on learning outside of the classroom environment. “Any hands-on project that supplements teaching in the classroom helps reinforce skills and abilities,” he said. “Our game is a great opportunity that combines classroom teaching with an actual event. It provides issues and problems that students could possibly face in a few years when they are out of school. It’s a great learning tool.” Any business or individual that would like to make a donation or provide a raffle prize for the flag football game may contact Dan Nicholson at Items may also be mailed to Noblesville High School Attn: Dan Nicholson, 18111 Cumberland Rd., Noblesville, 46060.

DISPATCHES » Risks of anesthesia – Children who received general anesthesia repeatedly before the age of two had a doubling of their risk for learning disabilities at school age, according to a new study released last week. In recent years, many animal studies have shown that the drugs hamper brain development when administered during sensitive growth periods, and a contentious human study published in 2009 – by many of the same researchers who conducted this new research – found an increased risk of learning disabilities for children who had anesthesia under the age of four. -The Wall Street Journal » Shop for good health? – New study: About 1,800 adults age 65 and older were asked how often they went shopping – with options ranging from “never” to “every day.” Researchers found that those who shopped every day had a 27 percent lower risk for death than those who shopped less frequently. Daily shopping was especially beneficial for men – their mortality reduction was 28 percent, compared with 23 percent for women. Theory: Shopping, even window shopping, allows you to get out of the house, socialize and be physically active – factors believed to extend life. -Bottom Line Health

Busting breast cancer with Vitamin D COMMENTARY By Angela LaSalle M.D.

Is Vitamin D an emerging tool in the fight against breast cancer? In a recent study at the State University of New York, human breast cancer cells were treated with Vitamin D resulting in shrinkage and death of the abnormal cells. Vitamin D levels may also be predictive of more aggressive cancers with one study showing women with more aggressive cancer types being three times more likely to have low Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D does more than protect the breasts. Recently, a randomized controlled trial with 1100 IU/day Vitamin D3 plus 1450 mg/day calcium found a 77 percent reduction in all-cancer incidence. One possible mechanism may be the VDR, or Vitamin D Receptor. The VDR is one of the regulators of gene transcription, and may work to turn on and off critical genes involved in the growth of tumor cells. Detoxification pathways also require Vitamin D and affect the breakdown of hormones, toxins and the production of neurotransmitters and fights inflammation. Vitamin D also is protective against cancer recurrence. A study published in the Aug 2010 issue of Journal of Clinical On-

Imagine…Using Your Own Cells to Improve Lines and Wrinkles on Your Face What was once science fiction is now reality. The ability to use your own cells to generate new collagen and restore youthful skin is finally here. It’s called laViv. LaViv is the first and only FDA-approved personalized cell therapy used to treat smile lines, the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The personalized cell therapy works by extracting and multiplying a person’s own skin cells called fibroblasts, to create laViv, which is then injected into the patient to improve the appearance of lines. Fibroblast cells play a critical role producing collagen and as people age, their fibroblasts and collagen break down, resulting in wrinkles and lost skin tone. LaViv produces rejuvenated cellular fibroblasts, which are responsible for making collagen improving skin tone, structure, and quality. LaViv therapy provides a smooth, even appearance with gradual, natural looking results in 3-6 months. The treatment is

cology showed that women with deficient Vitamin D levels were 94 percent more likely to have distant recurrence and 73 percent more likely to die from the disease. Lack of sun exposure isn’t the only cause for low Vitamin D. Researchers have identified genetic variations in the Vitamin D receptors that can increase risk for breast, prostate, melanoma, bladder and colon cancers as well as other ailments such as diabetes, depression and auto-immune disease. Nutrition and sun exposure are important variables as is skin tone with darker skinned individuals having lower Vitamin D levels. How do you know if you need more Vitamin D? The best way is for your doctor to order a blood test to check Vitamin D levels. Though the laboratory range for a normal level is between 30 and 100, most experts suggest that a more optimal level is between 50-80 ng/ml to achieve the best cancer protective effect.

effective and safe because the fibroblast cells are recognized by your body’s immune system and do not trigger an immune response. As a result of participating in laViv clinical trials, I am the first and only physician in Indiana to offer laViv therapy. I have over 10-years of experience with laViv therapy, and have perfected the injection technique required to optimize cellular growth. The procedure is completed in our office and involves taking a sample of fibroblast skin cells from behind the ear. The location is chosen due to limited exposure to the sun and to avoid creating a visible scar. Once the biopsy is complete, the cells are sent to a lab, where the fibroblasts are grown and multiplied. The growth process takes approximately 90- days, and when complete, the cells are sent back to our office for injection. Your fibroblast cells are stored, will remain frozen, and can be used for future injections. Introductory pricing is available for a limited time.

Growing with Fishers and Nearby Communities St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast has been serving the Town of Fishers and its surrounding communities since 2008. With each passing year, more and more people in our rapidly growing community depend on us for care. In 2010 alone, we served more than 40,000 community members with our outpatient services. In this rapidly developing community and increased volumes in our facility we are excited to announce our expansion in services. In 2013, St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast will become St.Vincent Fishers Hospital — a full-service hospital with an additional 40 inpatient beds among other amenities. Which means we can continue to serve Fishers’ growing healthcare needs with state-of-the-art facilities, additional services and added convenience for our patients. With this growth, we’ll also become a gateway for the Fishers Medical Technology Corridor — an initiative developed by the Fishers Department of Development. 1,132 acres will be set aside for a medical,

technology, research and educational corridor aimed at enhancing career opportunities and supporting collaboration among industries. Our expansion at St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast is scheduled to begin in October 2011 and completed in February 2013. It will be the start of an exciting time not just for us, but also the entire community. We look forward to growing with you. Yours in The Spirit of Caring,

St.Vincent Fishers Hospital Growing services. Growing space. Growing spirit.

For a successful healthcare organization, outgrowing its workspace is inevitable. And St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast has been growing right along with Fishers and the surrounding community since 2008. To continue meeting the increasing healthcare needs of our current and future patients, St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast will expand to become St.Vincent Fishers Hospital — a full-service hospital and the gateway to the upcoming Fishers Medical Technology Corridor.

“The goal isn’t just to deliver better care. It’s to deliver the best care by using resources more efficiently. And becoming LEED certified ensures that we’re sustainable for Fishers in the future.” — KIm NeALON — Administrator St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast

Fulfilling our role as a full-service hospital in Fishers means we must be able to provide new and innovative services to our patients and visitors. So as our facility expands, so too must our staff. As we become St.Vincent Fishers Hospital, we’ll hire approximately 200 new associates. Which means we’ll not only be welcoming new members to the St.Vincent family, but also providing new job opportunities to the community. When the hospital expansion is complete in February 2013, St.Vincent Fishers Hospital will include the latest healthcare amenities and innovations available. They include:

as comfortable for families and guests as it is for our patients. At St.Vincent Fishers Hospital, we’ll move away from the traditional concept of large, communal waiting rooms. Instead, alcoves with natural light and plush furnishings will invite visitors and families to congregate comfortably, privately and closer to loved ones.

A Focus On Wellness and Productivity While healing will always be a focus for us, St.Vincent Fishers Hospital will place great emphasis on wellness and prevention, with a proactive approach to personal health and productivity. This means encouraging wellness not just among our patients, but also among our staff with amenities such as a fitness center. Indoor and outdoor dining areas will also be available, offering healthy food choices to both associates and visitors. The future of St.Vincent Medical Center Northeast was inspired by the future of Fishers. It’s why we’ve chosen to build the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified hospital in Indiana. It means St.Vincent Fishers Hospital will

40 Inpatient Beds St.Vincent Fishers Hospital will be a full-service hospital with extended inpatient services. The 40-bed capacity at St.Vincent Fishers Hospital will include rooms for 30 surgical or medical beds and 10 observation beds. But these rooms are far from ordinary. To ensure that every room is designed for peak operational efficiency, designers sought the advice of our physicians and nurses to create spaces designed to provide efficient care for patients, allowing them to spend more time with each patient.

Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum in One Room With 10 labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum beds, patients can remain in the same room until it’s time to return home. These beautiful and versatile rooms transition seamlessly from labor to recovery, allowing mother and baby to remain together throughout their stay. Rooms will be designed with stylish décor and include amenities like Wi-Fi, 24-hour room service and a full-size bed for dad.

Intimate Gathering Spaces for Visitors We think visits from friends and loved ones are an important part of the healing process for our patients. And it’s why we want our hospital to be Comfortable and bright waiting rooms.

be built for efficiency, sustainability and low impact on the environment. We’ll be evaluated according to a strict set of LEED criteria, including energy savings, water efficiency, reduced CO2 emissions, improved indoor environmental quality and efficient resource management. Keeping the future of Fishers and its surrounding communities bright is what matters most. Whether it’s by becoming a gateway for the Town of Fishers’ Medical Technology Corridor, nurturing our ongoing relationship with the local fire department for events like Safety Day, or simply being more conscious of our environmental impact, we’ll always serve our neighbors in The Spirit of Caring.

DISPATCHES » Featured artist exhibition – Detrás de la Máscara/Behind the Mask by Salvador Jimenez Flores is on display at the Churchman Fehsenfeld Gallery and Frank M. Basile Exhibition Hall now through Nov. 27 at The Indianapolis Art Center. In this series of works, Salvador has chosen to pay tribute to several immigrants who died pursuing the dream of migrating to the U.S. for a better life. “Instead of a traditional altar, I have created each of their altars as a personalized portrait using the same basic mask outline,” he said.  » Fight jet lag? – In a study published in the Journal of Science in 2008, researchers suggested that fasting for about 16 hours before a long flight may actually help to fend off  jet lag. Normally it’s light that triggers an internal clock that controls when we eat and sleep. But according to the study, a second clock seems to override the first when the body senses that food is in short supply. In essence, if you make your body think it’s starving, you’ll be able to remain awake and alert until it’s dinner time in your new destination, resetting your body’s light clock in the process. » Reliable wine importers – If you’re in doubt about a wine, look for the importer’s name on the back label. These importers can always be trusted: 1. Kermit Lynch – Lynch has been finding stunning small-production French wines for more than 20 years. 2. Terry Theise -This importer specializes in Austrian and German wines as well as grower Champagnes like Pierre Peters’s NV Cuvée Reserve. 3. Louis/Dressner – Importer Joe Dressner and his wife, Denyse Louis, source natural wines from throughout Europe.

Helping to plan that ‘perfect day’ By Robert Herrington Those looking to or currently planning a wedding found plenty of ideas and options during the free Hamilton County Fall Bridal Show last week at Conner Prairie. The four-hour event was sponsored by Aardvark’s Party Rentals. “It’s been very busy. We’re excited about that,” said Aardvark owner Steven Goss. Aardvark’s began hosting the bridal show in 2002 and added a spring show earlier this year. “We wanted to provide a low-cost market of vendors to connect with the public,” said Goss. “Local providers tend to be better providers than the chains.” The fall show had 28 vendors covering a broad spectrum of needs – travel, rental, disc jockeys, photographers, caterers, venues, invitation and program printers and clothing providers. It also included a drawing for an all-inclusive three-night, four-day stay at a Club Med location by Family Vacations travel agency of Noblesville. “They’re all wedding professionals in wedding-related businesses,” Goss said. Dan Yancey of Yancey’s Apparel in Noblesville said he usually gets six to seven new clients after attending bridal shows, but is hopeful this year’s show will provide even more. “It’s been very nice. The nicest part is that there are a lot of men with their brides-to-be. A lot of times it’s just brides,” he said. “More than

anything it gets my name out.” “The only way to break through and be successful in the wedding business is really (through) word of mouth,” added Rachel Hammack of Sheridan Florist. “Brides see your work here.” Hammack added typically at least one person at a wedding is engaged and planning their own celebration. “I like that there is not a lot of vendors. It’s not as overwhelming for brides,” she said. “It’s small and more personal,” added Rachel Spencer of Sheridan Florist. “Usually there are so many vendors. I like that we’re the only florists.” Susan Pierce’s daughter will be wed in May and she came to the event to find nearby vendors for the blessed day. “I heard all the vendors were local,” she said. “That’s important to me.”

DISPATCHES » Crooks can buy ATMs – Hop on over to eBay and Craigslist and type in “ATM.” Availability varies, but often you can find machines for sale that cost just a few hundred bucks. Bad guys can buy these, get a computer programmer to rewrite the code and set them up just about anywhere to collect people’s card information and PINs. Sometimes the machines actually dispense some cash, but often they’re set up just to display an error message – after stealing your data. » New debit card fees – Bank of America will start charging a $5 monthly fee to consumers who use their debit cards early next year, joining a series of banks reacting to new federal regulations by imposing new costs for customers. Wells Fargo, Chase, SunTrust and Regions Bank also are launching debit card fees, either in certain states or system wide, and many others have cut rewards. But if you’re willing to shift your accounts to an online bank, you can still get debit rewards. Ally Bank, for instance, pays both rewards and a decent interest rate on deposits.

What if I work from home?

INSURANCE Q&A By Dena Shepherd Page Question from Rachel M. from Westfield: I work from home once or twice a week. Are there any insurance issues I need to worry about? Response from Dena Shepherd Page: If you have an ongoing arrangement which to work at home in any capacity, you will be considered a telecommuter. The special privilege of reduced commuting also brings some special insurance considerations in play. Bringing your work home with you can have some unintended consequences. Most homeowner policies severely restrict or exclude coverage for business property. This is further complicated by the fact business property is usually pretty valuable. Business property could include anything your employer provides for you to work at home, including computers, printers, phone equipment and valuable paperwork. Liability issues can also arise when you’re working from home. A typical homeowner policy will completely exclude business-related losses. A social guest slipping and falling is a common claim your homeowners policy will cover. Switch it around and make the guest a business guest and you can have liability issues for you and for your employer. Liability claims are never fun, but they’re a lot less fun when your homeowner policy excludes them. Using your personal vehicle for job-related

activities, like making deliveries or client calls, can also cause some issues. Most personal auto policies exclude job-related use. Driving to and from work would not fall under job-related use. Some examples of job-related use would be: picking up a client at the airport, running to the store to restock the office vending machine, driving to and from client appointments. Now that you have a better idea of what you should be worried about, you should take a minute to document what you do so your employer and your independent insurance agent can make sure you’re covered properly. Make note of the following: • What routine job duties do you perform in your home? • Are any tasks hazardous? • Who visits your home because of your job? • Is a certain part of your home dedicated as a work area/office? • What equipment is used in your job? Who owns each piece of equipment? The answers to these questions will be a great start for you and your independent insurance agent to make sure you are adequately protected.

Bring your gently used housewares to the Carmel United Methodist Church Mission House, 621 S. Rangeline Road, Carmel, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday. We’ll take them to previously homeless people who are getting a second start at independent living. You’ll get a tax deduction and the warm glow that comes from helping others.

Bison, it’s what’s for dinner By Robert Herrington Those looking to try something new – or healthier – for dinner should consider visiting the newly opened Bison World for a variety of exotic meats, which are grass feed and locally-raised. The store, which opened on Aug. 16, offers bison, beef, pork, venison, lamb and elk cuts. Johnson Farms has been raising buffalo since 1999 and its farm has included camels, zebras, highlanders and other exotic animals. Bison World owner Art Johnson said he used to give his bison meat away or provided it to golf outings and charities before going into business. In February, Bison World became the local distributor in Indiana for Green B.E.A.N. Foods. “We know where it comes from and how it’s been raised. We don’t add anything to our meats,” he said. “There is no processing on site. We use a USGA certified site.” Johnson said once people taste bison meat they tend to prefer it over beef. He added the meat also contains many health benefits including being the lowest meat in terms of fat, calories and cholesterol and is the highest in iron and second to salmon in Vitamin B12. When comparing similar sizes of bison and 95 percent lean beef, Johnson said the beef produces five tablespoons of grease when cooked to just half a teaspoon for the buffalo meat. “It’s the only meat that contains no known

allergens to man,” said Johnson. “It also has 33 percent more protein compared to beef so you eat less and are filled faster.” In addition to the various meats, Bison World offers unique bison-related items like robes, leather jackets, mounted heads and even stuffed animals. “Every part of the animal can be used. It’s an efficient creature,” Johnson said. In the near future, Johnson plans to add a smokehouse and produce stand to the store. “I hope we’re cooking meat and selling burgers next summer,” he said. Bison World is at 20100 Ind. 37 North, Noblesville. The building began as a golf cart store in 1974 but has been vacant since 2008, before Johnson purchased and redesigned the location. Bison World is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit www. or call 214-1060.

Fall and autumn landscaping tips COMMENTARY By Mark Skipper Well it’s that time of year again. The kids are back in school and you are taking stock on what you did for the summer and wonder where the time went. You still have plenty of time to add value to your landscaping. We all know good things have to come to an end, but there are many ideas out and about to make that enjoyment last just a little bit longer. There are many plants available that can stand up to a little cold or even a little frost. The kinds of plants would be the more fibrous and woody plants. With all the variety of the tall grasses that have become available within the last few years, would make a great addition to your fall gardening experience. There is such a collection of colors, heights and plumage, it is hard to choose. The best thing about the grasses is they are maintenance free. Also in late summer there are a variety of mums that can be planted. These are one of the most hardy when dealing with the cold October weather. Kale is another great plant that can add a lot of color to your landscape. Another great idea for fall coloring is the trees

you plant in your yard. You can go from bright yellows to fiery red. Some of the best choices are sugar maples, birch, ash ginkgo, redbud, beech, butternut, honey locust and the tulip tree just to name a few out there. With all the gourds, pumpkins, cornstalks, hay bales and potted plants you could have a lot of fun decorating your yard for fall. You could make a straw or hay bale stack on both sides of the end of your driveway and set up an arrangement of the fall colors. Visit your small, local garden centers to see what is available. When we have the opportunity to make a good thing last, even if it’s for just a little bit, we should take advantage of that. We know eventually all good things must come to an end. But the great thing about landscaping is that we get to do it again next year and the next. See you in the spring my friends.

What’s in the past doesn’t matter – or does it? Genealogy By Darla Kinney Scoles A member of a genealogy group recently asked members what was the worst advice about being a family history enthusiast. Their responses included more discouraging words than advice. Statements included: “Who cares?” “They are all dead.” “What’s in the past doesn’t matter, you’re missing the present.” Not so, according to recent research. A master’s student at the University of Calgary (Alberta, Canada) went in search of what motivated people to adopt the family history pastime in spite of such negative reactions from those around them. Through interviews, Adrienne Horne questioned why people choose to learn about their families’ histories and what benefits they received from it. She found that many people get involved because when they were growing up they were never told stories about their families. Now they simply want to learn a bit of their heritage or even uncover the big family secret. “Others were told lots of stories as children,” Horne said, “and they want to find out if any of the stories were true.”

As for the benefits of genealogy, Horne found they are far reaching and include a social and educational element. “The simple act of researching and compiling information gives people a sense of accomplishment and independence, shared Horne.” Horne also found that tracing family heritage helps people see that they are part of a long line of relatives and that they are going to be able to leave this legacy for future generations. “As people get into this, they learn that family members had a part in history, and so it gives them a sense of worth,” she stated, adding “the participants feel the most important reward is a simple sense of belonging. “This gives people a place in the world, and connects them to a long chain of people in history, as well as the future, through their children.”
