Philanthropy Duo helping sick youth with fundraiser on Friday COMMUNITY By Robert Herrington email@example.com
Two Hamilton County girls are working hard to impact the lives of two ailing local girls. Olivia Johnson, 10, and Peighton Isley, 9, of Westfield are hosting a fundraiser called the H&M Event to benefit Henley Romine of Westfield, 3, and Morgan Oisten of Noblesville, 4. For the last two summers, Olivia and Peighton have had a lemonade stand in the neighborhood and have donated the money to Morgan and Henley. “They wanted to do something bigger and reach more people,” said Emily Johnson, Olivia’s mother. Olivia and Peighton said as these two little girls are fighting to improve their health, they are having this fundraiser to help their families with the medical costs and to raise awareness for their illnesses. On Friday, the H&M event will feature a scavenger hunt around the Oak Manor neighborhood in Westfield along with a 1-mile walk and a 2-mile run on the trail. The event, stationed at the Oak Manor Clubhouse and Pool parking lot, kicks off at 5 p.m. with the scavenger hunt checkin, the race will begin at 5:15 p.m. The run/walk check-in begins at 5:45 p.m. followed by the start at 6 p.m. Costs are $5 per person or $10 a family for the scavenger hunt or run/walk with all proceeds donated to NOMID Alliance and the family of Henley Hazel Romine. A barbecue pork sandwich dinner will be provided to all participants by Stuart’s Steakhouse. The girls’ famous lemonade stand and a craft table will be available as well.
Morgan “It takes one or two people like them to make a difference,” said Peighton’s mother, Kelly Isley. “They’ve found their passion. They’ve got big hearts.” Morgan has Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease, a rare disease that only occurs in one in a million people. She was diagnosed at 8 months old (second youngest ever) and started an injection of Kineret at 10 months to help with the increased spinal fluid and many other things going on inside her body. Mike Oisten said there is only one other person in Indiana who also has the same disease as his daughter. NOMID can cause many horrible side effects or even death if not treated properly. “We go to the National Institutes of Health for research and development twice a year as the discovery of the disease is not
Henley very old and they are still pecking away as to what/where/why and how this happens,” he said. Henley was diagnosed with stage IV high risk Neuroblastoma in August 2010. “She was 18 months old at the time. She had a very small percentage chance of survival. She is now three and a half and has had intensive treatments,” said Grant Romine, Henley’s father. “We have had three relapses, spent over a year traveling (nearly living) to New York and are currently treating brain tumors through a trial in Grand Rapids, Mich. We aren’t sure what tomorrow will bring so that’s why we take it one day at a time, trusting God and bee-lieving in Henley.” For more information, contact Kelly Isley at 523-5634 or Emily Johnson at 376-9035.

Around Town Guerin Catholic recognized as top-50 high school COMMUNITY
By Robert Herrington • email@example.com St. Theodore Guerin High School was again recognized by The Cardinal Newman Society as a winner of the 2012-2013 Catholic High School Honor Roll competition. The top 50 schools are recognized for overall excellence in all three Honor Roll categories, and other schools receive special recognition in particular categories. “This recognition affirms that we have done what we are called to do as a Catholic school,” said Guerin Catholic Principal Rick Wagner. “The Catholic faith permeates every aspect of our school. We instruct in the faith; we celebrate our Wagner faith in daily Mass and all-school liturgies; and we pray together. The seeds of faith planted at Guerin Catholic will produce fruit for years to come. We know that tuition costs are a sacrifice, but there is real value in an education rooted in our faith.” This is the fourth consecutive time the Noblesville private school was been named a top 50 school. “Since competition began in 2004, the Honor Roll has been a helpful tool for administrators, families, and benefactors in recognizing the quality of a Catholic high school,” said Patrick J. Reilly, president of The Cardinal Newman Society. “The Honor Roll schools are a reminder that Catholic education is getting better every day—not only academically, but in the renewal of Catholic identity—and we are delighted to see the increased level of competition among the schools that participated in the program this year.” The top 50 schools are located in 21 states, with Pennsylvania having the highest number of honorees with seven schools, followed by Texas with six and Michigan with five. St. Theodore Guerin and St. Joseph’s (South Bend) were Indiana’s only schools to make the list. The Catholic High School Honor Roll was created by The Acton Institute in 2004. The Cardinal Newman Society assumed the program this year, consistent with its mission of helping Catholic families and promoting faithful Catholic education.

Own your American Dream Commentary by Kathy Richardson
On Oct. 4, House Republicans announced our legislative plan for the upcoming session. The agenda, “Own your American Dream,” focuses on three main goals to help Hoosiers succeed for years to come by cultivating a prosperous economic environment now. It has always been a cornerstone of our agenda to structure a balanced budget. As Hoosiers across the state are tightening their belts, the state’s government must also do the same. By having a predictable fiscal climate, it incentivizes business to grow and relocate in Indiana, bringing needed jobs to our communities. With these jobs, we need an educated workforce. We will work to bridge the educational skills gap. The legislation passed over the last few years has helped construct an environment where business can thrive. However, 67 percent of manufacturers have reported that they are in need of individuals with the right training to fill many open job positions. We will work to fix this workforce gap by increasing dual credit programs through our high schools and universities by strengthening the partnership between industry leaders and higher education institutions. This partnership will help create the best and most applicable training programs for our students who would like to enter a career in manufacturing. Lastly, it is imperative that we continue to empower leaders in the classrooms so that students are led by example to be leaders in life. An emphasis will be placed on promoting early childhood education and expanding education opportunities for all Hoosier families. A workforce demand exists for individuals with an education in the science, technology, engineering and math fields (STEM) and creating a strong educational path for children at a young age will put them on track to fill those demands. Indiana has worked hard to become one of the most financially strong states in the nation, being one of only nine states that now has a triple-A credit rating from all three agencies. As Hoosiers move forward to shape the future of Indiana, we recognize that we are at a crucial point in our history. We have two options, confront and solve the challenges that face our state today, or pass them along to future generations, and the latter is simply not an option we as Hoosiers can live with.

Boudia to meet and greet fans Friday email@example.com David Boudia delivered gold for Team USA in London this summer as fans in his hometown of Noblesville cheered him to victory. To thank his supporters, Boudia will be at the Marsh store located at 14450 Mundy Dr. for a meetand-greet appearance sponsored by Coca-Cola. The event is open to the public and will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday. In addition, one lucky family will enjoy lunch with the Olympic champion. The winning family entered to win a weekend in Indianapolis, including lunch with Boudia, a Colts game and a trip to the Indianapolis Zoo. Marsh shoppers entered the contest earlier this summer. Boudia was one of eight athletes who joined forces to form the Coca-Cola “Eight-Pack” of Athletes for the London 2012 Olympic Games. In addition to their role as medal contenders for Team USA , the athletes served as Coca-Cola “Ambassadors of Active Living” to help encourage and inspire people to lead active, balanced lives.
Better Options. Healthier Legs.
Boudia is passionate about keeping today’s youth healthy and active, as well as making the world a better place by giving back to kids in need of a positive role model. He says the Olympic experience provided him with the opportunity to see a bigger picture of the Games. “It is all about the journey,” he said. “It is not about the success there, rather it is the journey that is used to help me grow as a person.”

Mormon temple groundbreaking By Robert Herrington • firstname.lastname@example.org The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints broke ground on the Indianapolis Temple on Sept. 29. The 90-minute ceremony took place under the direction of senior church leader Elder Donald L. Hallstrom of the Presidency of the Seventy, who was joined by local and state church and community leaders. “This is a very exciting time for the members of the church in Indiana. The groundbreaking draws us one step closer to the rich blessings www.currentnoblesville.com
that the temple will bring,” said Indianapolis West Stake President William G. Cowley. Around the world there are currently 138 Mormon temples, which are different from meetinghouses where regular Sunday worship services are held. Latter-day Saint temples are considered holy places where church members make formal commitments to God. The Indianapolis Temple, located at the southwest corner of 116th Street and Springmill Road in Carmel, will be the first one in the state and is expected to be completed in 2014.

Nickel Plate Arts new executive director Aili McGill looks to expand organization, public participation By Robert Herrington • email@example.com Aili McGill’s love for the arts began at a young age. As a middle school student, she recalled how her quirky fun family had a “Von Trapp” vibe. “My mom would regularly write plays. We toured around doing plays at garden clubs throughout the state,” said the 30-year-old. Besides providing a foundation for her performing arts career, the garden club circuit is the root for her career in developing plays and programs. “I was always a successful student but informal learning is always when I was the most passionate and had the most fun,” she said. Two week ago, McGill began her new job as executive director of Nickel Plates Arts, which is headquartered in Noblesville’s Judge Stone House but has locations in Fishers, Cicero, Arcadia and Atlanta. “I hope my enthusiasm and professional experience give the organization a stable foundation to grow and blossom,” she said. “I hope in the next three to five years, Nickel Plates Arts is hooking people up with amazing art experiences that are inspiring. . . The slogan is ‘Unplug & Create’ and we want to get as many people as possible to do that.” McGill has lived in Noblesville for the past six years, but she knows the area well because her father has worked in the city for the past 15 years.

“It’s incredibly exciting. We are finally embracing the fact that we are a cool place,” she said. “I was OK with the cultural opportunities here beforehand, but the fun stuff I did was in Marion County not Hamilton County. I’m so excited to be able to foster neat, quality fun things to do and stay in Hamilton County.” McGill, who does improv at ComedySportz Indianapolis, says she dabbles in art. Being a little modest, McGill has created two graphic

novels – one for pleasure and one while working at Conner Prairie. “It’s very fair to call me a performing artist,” she jokingly stated. “I love being around artistic people. They inspire me to keep developing my skills. I dabble in arts and want to support them.” Prior to coming to Nickel Plate Arts, McGill was the director of operations at Conner Prairie. “I love Conner Prairie dearly; I’ll always be a big supporter,” she said. McGill worked for Conner Prairie for 12 years and started as the "carpenter’s daughter." “It was a summer job in college, but they kept promoting me,” she joked, adding that part of the reason for the change was to strengthen her administrative skills. “The potential here is limitless. I can walk to work and recognized I would be as creative in this job as I could be. I can develop and shepherd any crazy idea to its conclusion.” Drawing from her time at Conner Prairie, McGill said guest satisfaction and enjoyment are important to the organization’s schedule for programming and classes. “We can’t just do art for the artists’ sake or projects that make us happy,” she said. This year served as a pilot season for Nickel Plate Arts. As construction and renovation was taking place for the new headquarters, programming was concentrating on classes – which ones had interest and what price the public was comfortable in paying. “In 2013 we’re taking a broader approach,” said McGill. “We’re still figuring out what we are and look like.” That approach includes having a larger pres-
Current in Noblesville
ence within the Nickel Plate Arts Trail communities by providing opportunities for all age groups to be successful in all arts. Other potential programming could include cooking classes, progressive dinners, murder mysteries, improv comedy and artists doing work in front of the public. “It’s my goal to see a poetry slam happen in Hamilton County,” said McGill. “We are planning an art lab where people can wonder through and experiment with different art mediums.” The Nickel Plate Arts Campus in downtown Noblesville comprises the Judge Stone and Stephenson houses. Renovated space in the two buildings will provide classrooms, areas for exhibitions and seven artist studios. “We had far more interest in studios than space to give them,” said McGill, adding the organization’s long-term goal is to provide affordable studio space for artists. Campus space will be used flexibly to emphasize all arts – fine, sculpting, craft and performing arts “It’s a wonderful thing,” added artist John Reynolds. “I could tell you how important it (art) is. With the city and county to reopen it and be behind it like they are is just great.” Reynolds, a Noblesville resident who lives a few minutes away and has one of the seven studio spaces, spent the past 20 years driving to Indianapolis to work on his art. “The drive got worse every year,” he said. “All the (natural) light and old atmosphere is kind of fun.”
Upcoming events at the Nickle Plate Arts Campus in Noblesville include • Nov. 2 – Stories & Sweets. After enjoying soup from Noblesville’s finest restaurants during the First Friday event, come • Nov. 25 – Holiday crafts. Bring the whole family to the campus from noon to 4 p.m. to make a holiday craft before or after the 31st annual Noblesville Christmas Parade, which begins at 2 p.m. and will run through downtown. • Dec. 7 – Home for the Holidays.

It is our position that classic films are an important piece of motion picture history that should be preserved, enjoyed and passed down to the next generation. The Center for the Performing Arts is rolling out the red carpet for the works of Judy Garland, Julie Andrews, Shirley Jones, Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly among other musical starlets of the fifties and sixties as part of The Great American Songbook Movie Series. The series, presented by Printing Partners, is a collaboration between Heartland Truly Moving Pictures and the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative. While 3D special effects and violence rule most commercial films of today, there’s something uplifting about watching a Technicolor classic musical on the big screen featuring songs from The Great American Songbook. Who can resist the pairing of Rosemary Clooney and Bing Crosby in White Christmas gazing into each other’s piercing blue eyes, singing Irving Berlin’s songs of with their smooth sultry voices? The breathtakingly beautiful costumes of classic musicals are also a feast for the eyes. Viewing the films in the gorgeous surroundings of The Palladium is reminiscent of the ornate movie houses of long-ago. Thanks to this musical festival, we’ll be counting our blessings instead of sheep.

We’re mixed on balanced calendar
Best and final
Commentary by Terry Anker
Among the dizzying array of “reality” television shows is a spate of programming documenting the sale of expensive real estate. As it turns out, our family is acquainted with a regular on the one such broadcast called Selling New York, so we routinely tune in and follow the travails of the merry band of brokers, buyers and sellers. Part “Business Week” and part “Architectural Digest,” the homes being considered rarely fall below the million dollar mark and routinely range in the eight figures. As corresponds with such rarified air, the parties to the transaction are, well, interesting. Often confirming that considerable wealth affords for eccentricity even as it likewise pays for Bulgari, these programs also illustrate important points about human nature. With negotiations underway, humans operate in a predictable and often emotional way. The valiant brokers scramble to assemble a deal where the seller – often already realizing millions in profit on the property – is offended by the buyer – often more concerned with
the cosmetic than the structural – as these two parties work to find common ground and mutual benefit. The able realtor works to point to the shared success of the transaction – one is selling a property that is no longer suited to his needs and the other is finding a new home which accomplishes many of his requirements. Yet an inability or unwillingness to see the perspective of the other often takes the arrangement to impasse. When negotiations have stalled, a party will declare this is my best and final offer. It functions as an ultimatum, a last word and a gauntlet. Sometimes the tactic pushes the deal to close. Often, the parties walk away without consummation. Is this a failure of the system or simply the market at work? Are we mistaken to seek compromise when we might pursue brinksmanship? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

As early as Oct. 23, the board of Noblesville Schools could vote on a change to the academic calendar as we know it. The district, through last Friday, had sought community input on the possibility of moving from a traditional school year calendar to a balanced calendar. A balanced calendar still would include 180 school days, but summer break would be eight weeks instead of 10 weeks and longer, two-week breaks in the fall and spring would be planned. The district said it wants to end the first semester of school by winter break, regardless of which calendar is in place. Some schools on balanced calendars begin classes as early as late July and conclude the academic year in late May. The traditional calendar, or life as we know it, would continue to begin in mid-August and conclude in late May/early June. Typical traditional-calendar breaks here, according to the district, would be two school days for fall break, three school days for Thanksgiving break, two weeks for winter break, and six school days for spring break, plus occasional holidays. A public forum last night was to have included results of the public’s input. The results also are posted at www. noblesvilleschols.org. No other school district in Hamilton County has a balanced calendar. We’re mixed on the balanced-calendar idea. On one hand, it does provide for longer breaks, which could make for happier students. At the same time, parents would have to account for and/or plan their children’s whereabouts during those two-week breaks. Besides, not many families we know would be gung-ho for two twoweek vacations a year, and we aren’t even talking about affordability. Besides, how many folks can just take off four weeks of work, anyway? If the reasoning for this is purely educational, though, it might be worth a try.

My son's thumbs are killing my phone plan Commentary by Danielle Wilson We received our cell phone bill the other day and I almost stroked out. It wasn’t the cost that surprised me. We pay for three phones, unlimited calls and data, so that amount is fairly set each month. No, my friends, it was the number of texts our teenage son sent last month that had me frantically searching for aspirin. Before I reveal the total, know that I came in at the lowest, with a whopping 71 messages. (I know this sounds low, but remember I have giant sausage fingers and an ancient flip phone. So really, sending even one text is an impressive feat worthy of praise. [Insert praise] Why, thank you!) My husband, Doo, was in the middle with approximately 175. He actually enjoys conversing on a phone and often will just call a person rather than text. Reason No. 37 why I love him. When Doo asked me to estimate how many messages I thought our former Chez Wilson prison inmate had sent, I imagined a fairly high number and then doubled it, just to be on the safe side. “Two thousand,” I said. Doo snickered. I was way off, and not in the right direction. No, our dexterous heir texted . . . are you ready for this? . . . 10,982 times in one month. Ten thousand, nine hundred, and eight-flippin’-two! Almost 11,000 text messages! No wonder we had to ground him for poor grades. The kid is spending every waking hour, and then some, texting on his
stupid phone. And if your son knows my son, it means your child is, too! We did the math. Our beloved first-born is texting, on average, 366 times daily. Assuming he sleeps at least eight hours, attends school for another eight, and is otherwise engaged in sports or chores or on the rare occasion, homework, for another two, he is sending 61 messages an hour. That’s one text every minute. Seriously? And OK, I realize the average is less when you throw in weekends, but still. That’s a buttload of texting. Or is it? We’ve been secretly surveying other families with teenagers (and quietly judging them.) Turns out 10,000 is certainly on the high end but not all that uncommon. Kids these days don’t spend hours talking on the phone like we did; they just text. And as one astute mom pointed out, many of their messages are single words or letters. “Hi.” “No.” “K.” So maybe I over-reacted a tad when I saw the amount, but I can assure you we will be changing our discipline methods next time they’re called for. Goodbye weekend incarceration, hello cell phone confiscation. Peace out.

Commentary by Mike Redmond Lately I have been hanging out with my pal Bob Glaze, a name which probably does not ring a bell, until I throw in the extra added attraction: Bob Glaze, also known as Cowboy Bob, longtime host of Cowboy Bob’s Corral on WTTV, Channel 4. For a large segment of the Central Indiana population, Cowboy Bob was “The Man” in the ‘70s. Talk about Must-See TV: Get yourself a tray, have mom set it up with a PBJ and a glass of milk, warm up the Zenith and get set for big noontime kid fun. Bob, whether in his civilian guise or his Cowboy Bob persona, is a hoot. Then again, you should expect no less from a man who spent much of his career with a biscuit for a sidekick. OK, maybe you had to be there. Anyway, it’s nice to report he is essentially the same guy he was when he was telling the kids to take their naps after the show was over. What Bob and I invariably end up talking about is something I call “The Death of Local.” “The Death of Local” goes way further than just TV. During the Golden Age of Kidhood, the diet of a Central Indiana youngster likely revolved around Marhoefer wieners, Chesty

Afterward, if you behaved yourself, the family might get to go to the Tee Pee restaurant for dinner, although it had to be early because dad didn’t want to be there when all the teenagers started rolling in with their loud cars and their Ricky Nelson music. You get the picture. Local. It isn’t that the products and places I mention were better than what we have today, although in many cases that’s true. More important, they were ours. They gave us identity, a sense of place that you just can’t get from another chain pizza outlet or cheesecake assembly line just like the ones in Kansas City, Cleveland and Springfield. Maybe that’s why we get onto this subject so much – that by talking about it, we actually keep it alive in a small way. Although it’s no substitute for a bag of Chesty potato chips.

Thoughts of a Democrat in Hamilton County Editor, Thank you for your “From the Backshop” column in Current (Oct. 2). It’s important to have your perspective, which likely represents the majority opinion of the readers in our communities, except maybe others, such as myself. Therefore, for balance, I would like to provide another perspective in response to your questions as a left-leaning independent in the midst of “Republican country.” On the subject of the General Motors “bailout,” I would suggest that the president was thinking of everyone when he “saved union jobs and crushed bond holders.” (Reminder, the money for this initiative was in the Troubled Asset Relief Fund, initially approved under the Bush administration.) First, by averting liquidations that would have caused catastrophic consequences across the U.S. auto industry and its suppliers at the height of the recession, he saved thousands of jobs, to say nothing of the cities and towns in states like Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, and the local businesses that would have also been impacted. Would they have avoided this loss if GM had been allowed to fail? Unlikely. On the subject of ObamaCare waivers, as you accurately state, the waivers covered 1,231 businesses and 4 million people, or about 3 percent of the working population, which have been exempted from the law’s restrictions on annual benefit caps. So your readers are clear, the law requires health plans to gradually raise their
benefit limits, and all annual limits will become illegal in 2014. That’s good for us, especially if we have a family member with a debilitating disease. Lastly, on the subject of the Solyndra investment, was the president thinking of all entrepreneurs when “he” made that commitment (the commitment was made by others in the federal government, as I recall)? I would argue he was thinking of all entrepreneurs who are interested in high-risk, high-reward basic research, where the federal government invests approximately $150 billion (yes, billion) every year. … So, for breakthroughs, most entrepreneurs likely value and appreciate the federal government’s support. Just remember this when a family member or friend develops a disease that requires an innovative new therapy to treat it effectively, and thank the federal government for some level of support in the basic research that made that drug possible. There seems to be a pattern by conservative media when discussing President Obama’s record (and him personally) that it’s fair to leave out important information when providing a point of view. I’ll leave it to the readers armed with more background and added perspective to assess if the president was considering “everyone” in these particular concerns.

The 47 percent
Editor, Your opinion piece on Romney’s derision of the 47 percent was disappointing. I thought you were off to a good start when you wrote you were glad his comments came to light, but then you lost me when you described your reason why. Since Romney’s comments came out, multiple organizations have corrected the record on who constitutes the 47 percent. The 47 percent don’t pay federal taxes because they’re poor, elderly, or in the military, not because they’re scamming the government. That thinking also
discounts the myriad fees, sales taxes and payroll taxes we all pay. I’m sure you would not suggest people on Social Security should pay more in taxes. The fact that Romney is not clear on why the 47 percent don’t pay federal taxes would make him unqualified to be Secretary of the Treasury. His tax dodging schemes and disdain for the 47 percent should make him unqualified to be president. Thanks, Ara Wade, 46074

Consider laser skin rejuvenation to combat damaged epidermis By Dr. Jodi Harper and Dr. Angela Corea As we age, the effects of our sun-loving-days begin to take their toll on our skin. Lines, wrinkles, dark spots and uneven texture are all signs of sun damage. How can we help reverse these signs? Laser skin rejuvenation is a great option to consider. The laser is used to remove layers of damaged skin so that new, smoother, more vibrant, youthful looking skin is revealed. Other lasers have been used for this problem for years, but there were many risks. Patients often had to endure post-procedure redness and wound healing for months. Other lasers can ablate the skin but are not much more effective than a chemical peel. Using cutting-edge technology, Cutera® created and perfected the first FDA-cleared laser using the 2790 wavelength for the treatment of wrinkles, known as the “PEARL”. The PEARL is the true balance of aggressive, effective ablation along with safety. The epidermis is treated with pulses of light eliminating the damaged skin, while simultaneously leaving a natural protective dressing. Collagen is stimulated in the deeper layers of the skin for long lasting results. This laser allows experienced technicians
to safely control the depth of the laser according to patient concerns. Wrinkles, fine lines, uneven texture, skin laxity, sun spots, large pores, and even scarring can all be addressed. Patients should expect about three to four days of ‘social’ downtime where they will experience a mild sunburned appearance without the pain. Discomfort due to a heat sensation can occur during the short procedure, but dissipates within 20-30min afterwards. It usually takes two treatments to get a dramatic effect, but great results can be seen with just one treatment. Benefits of laser skin resurfacing: • Take years off your face in less than one week with lasting results • Eliminate or diminish sunspots, wrinkles, large pores • Acne and surgical scarring can also be improved • Short procedure with minimal “downtime” • Minimal discomfort and easy post-procedure care Dr. Jodie R. Harper is boardcertified in internal medicine, geriatrics and wound care. Dr. Angela Corea is board certified in internal medicine. They are the medical directors at ClarityMD.

Community Health Network, St.Vincent Health and six hospitals form alliance firstname.lastname@example.org Two of the largest healthcare systems in Indiana will partner with six area hospitals that are part of the Suburban Health Organization to launch an accountable care consortium focusing on innovative healthcare solutions for employers and commercial markets. In addition to Community and St.Vincent Health, the suburban hospitals that have joined the ACC include Riverview Hospital in Noblesville, Hancock Regional Hospital, Hendricks Regional Health, Henry County Hospital, Johnson Memorial Hospital and Witham Health Services “The ACC will commit to standardized measures and goals and creating an environment of shared innovation to achieve the best outcomes possible,” said SHO President Julie Carmichael. “Benefits of participation in the ACC include shared infrastructure costs, common performance measures and reporting, standardization of clinical protocols and customization of work flow changes as it pertains to a chronic medical condition.” The goal of the partnership is to improve the quality of patient care, while lowering the cost of healthcare delivery. The ACC will be a separate entity with its own board and CEO. It is not connected to a federal government initiative.
“As ACC partners, we remain separate organizations in a competitive healthcare environment,” said Community Health Network President and CEO Bryan Mills. “We recognize that everyone gains when we are able to deliver higher quality care, while controlling costs. Working collaboratively on our goals of reducing the cost of healthcare for defined populations, we believe we can achieve greater success together, than if we pursue these aims separately.” The yet-unnamed ACC is a collaboration where all partners have formed a joint venture and have equal ownership. While not a merger, the ACC partners will bring together more than 30 hospitals throughout central Indiana. Physicians are leading the efforts to develop and focus on best practices. In addition, each partner has committed to utilizing their respective IT infrastructures for collecting clinical data, while working together to allow the sharing of information between provider members. “Healthcare reform has required healthcare systems to think differently than in the past,” said Vincent Caponi, CEO of St.Vincent Health and Ascension Health Ministry Market Leader for Indiana and Wisconsin. “Through our ACC partnership, we share a vision of redesigning the healthcare model, and have similar approaches to the delivery of care for Indiana patients and families.”

Scared to act
Commentary by David Cain
Fear is the single greatest reason people act. What you are afraid of is more motivating than your dreams and desires. We all like to dream, but it’s our fears that usually create a faster reality. You are more likely to act to sidestep pain then you are to satisfy your desires. Every action, every decision is rooted in your fears. What keeps you up at night is more likely to get your attention; it’s not the things that please you. It’s not saying we are always reactive, but we do react quickly to pains and problems. I get my car fixed when it’s broken. I go to the doctor when I’m sick. I create a budget when sales are down. I answer my wife when she raises her voice. So what is your biggest pain? It’s usually a fear, a fear of failure. Failure is defined differently for everyone. It might be failure to live up to your parent’s expectations, or your boss’s, or your spouse’s, or it might be failure to provide for your family in a manner you see fit. Failure is subjective, based on your individual perspective. However, avoiding it – personally and professionally – is your

biggest call-to-action. Your brain is at work 24/7 making you do things to avoid the big failure, your big failure. It wants to protect you from what you fear the most. Finding a common failure that people have anxiety about is a rallying point for actions. You gently remind someone of things they fear and they feel closer to you. Lines like, “You are probably thinking (insert anxiety) and I would be to…” allow you to let him know you have a window into their problems. When you get someone to reveal their anxiety and fear, you have earned trust, you have listened, you care and you have a better shot at having them take action. You have made a legitimate connection with them and with that true connection actions will follow. Actions follow because you now can solve their problems because you understand them. You can be a real partner. Your customer’s pain can lead to your mutual gain.

Previously, the store had 3,000 sq. ft. of space, but the new location at the old Masonic building in downtown Westfield is only 700 sq. ft. “I focused on what I had and made it a boutique shop,” she said. “I have better brands, I’m focused more on style and not being a big warehouse of stuff.” Vaughner said her store carries American Eagle, Hollister, Abercrombie, etc. – all the big brands that children are wearing today at considerably lower prices. “People don’t want to pay $40 to $80 for a pair of jeans,” she said. “I’ve noticed that it’s not just the people who don’t have a lot of money – everyone is shopping wiser, it’s not looked down upon.” With the space change, Vaughner no longer has infant clothing and now carries toddler (3T) to teenager sizes. “I like having teens because nothing around here has teen clothing,” she said, “with prices mom and teens can deal with.” The Dotted Lime buys new and like new clothing – from casual wear to Sunday’s best and formal dresses, and sportswear like sports cleats and football pants. “I try to carry as much as I can. A lot of the stuff we get in is new because kids outgrow their

clothes before they can wear it,” Vaughner said. “We’re clean, organized and I am very picky on what we take. . . Anything I can get that I think is awesome, I will carry.” In addition to children’s clothing, The Dotted Lime sells purses, shoes, jewelry, Vera Bradley, books, games and DVDs. Isabella Smith assists her mother with the fashion. The Westfield Intermediate School student said she also gets all of her clothing from the store. “It’s cool because you don’t have to worry about how much prices are compared to what other stores are when you get the same thing,” Smith said. Vaughner has lived in the Westfield area for 45 years. Her father was a longtime preacher in the city and the family lived in Westfield before moving to Noblesville, where Vaughner graduated from Noblesville High School in 1985. The Dotted Lime Resale is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday; and noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday. The store is located at 230 E. Main St. in Westfield.

Travel / Et cetera
Good to know before you go Commentary by Tracy Line There are a myriad of unusual and seemingly useless laws in our world. Some make us grin and aren’t really pertinent to our lives. But others are actually good for us to be aware of. Below is a list of unusual laws I’ve come across in my work. Read on for a good laugh, and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two that will keep you out of jail when you travel. • Visitors to Thailand must have underwear on at all times. No statutes on its cleanliness though… • Bear wrestling is illegal in Alabama, since 2006. I personally didn’t even know there were bears in Alabama. • In Florida, it is illegal for single women to parachute on Sundays. Is this discrimination? What about single men? • In London you can urinate anywhere in public, provided you are pregnant. Having been pregnant three times, I sort of understand this one. • In the same vein, one must check his watch before flushing a toilet in Switzerland; flushing after 10 p.m. in an apartment could land you in jail. • People with a DUI or DWI are not allowed entrance into Canada (border agents have access to U.S. criminal records). In addition, pit bulls are banned in Ontario; could
Buy new. Buy now. And you’ll save more. it be that a drunk U.S. citizen with a mean dog did something really, really bad in Ontario years back? • Spitting is against the law in Barcelona, Singapore, Vancouver and Dodge City, Kansas. Why isn’t it illegal everywhere? • It is illegal to photograph certain buildings in Vietnam. While you may not be thrown in jail for it, you will be shunned. Getting shunned in Vietnam sounds scary enough to me. • In Alabama it is a crime to be blindfolded while driving a vehicle. This one, I’m all for. I do wonder about the story behind it though.

Italicize Italian, look fancy Commentary by Jordan Fischer
Have you ever heard someone speaking in another language and just had a gut feeling that he or she was using poor grammar? I’m kidding, of course. I was, however, lucky enough to sample a veritable buffet of international languages recently while visiting San Francisco. In honor of my trip to the Bay City, I thought I’d talk this week about how to properly include a bit of foreign flair in your writing. Now, when you’re speaking and you want to throw in a foreign word, you just need to make sure you pronounce it correctly – or that no one nearby will know if you don’t. In writing, however, we have to worry about the presentation. Readers easily can become frustrated with words they don’t recognize unless we do something to let them know that we’ve dipped into our exotic lexicon. The way that we do that is with italics. One of my favorite passages from Mark Twain’s classic, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” involves a lively debate between Huck and his runaway slave companion Jim over the phrase “Parlez-vous français” Literally translated, it means, “Do you speak French?” While that’s neither here nor there, I thought I’d include it for the good of the order. What is important is that, before Huck offers Jim his condescending explanation of the phrase, it is presented in italics. This lets the reader know
we’re not in Kansas anymore, so to speak. The rule holds true for words from all languages. Common international loans into our lexicon include words like magna cum laude for exceptional college graduates, habeas corpus, which requires sufficient cause for the government to lock you, and one of Pepé Le Pew’s favorites, je ne sais quoi, or “I don’t know what.” The latter phrase is typically used to describe something indescribable. For certain words which have become very common in everyday usage, it’s alright to forgo the italics. While what constitutes “very common” is subjective, my list would include phrases like prima donna, faux pas, status quo and pro bono. This can be setting-specific, too: If you’re a law student, for example, there’s probably no need to italicize Latin words like de jure and a posteriori; and a musician would be pretty comfortable with non-italicized Italian phrases like andante, accelerando and da capo. As with all good writing, the key is to consider your audience. If they are unlikely to see the phrase on a regular basis, hit that italics key. As an added bonus, throwing in italicized words now and then makes you seem fancy. Jordan Fischer is an editor and investigative reporter for Current Publishing.

FREE CONSULTATION with a member of our Dream Team! ($50 value)
PIXIE CUT Fall has us itching for a change! We know you love your long, luscious locks? We do too… when they are healthy. But summer may have left you feeling like your ends are frayed and your locks have lost their luster. It’s time for a fresh cut! Take a note from Anne Hathaway and opt for a short ‘do that will make you feel nice and crisp, just as those leaves begin falling. Call and schedule your appointment at Salon01 and we will make this change scare-free.
TREAT YOUR TEEN Salon 01’s New Talent stylists are trained to specifically keep up-to-date with the ever-changing teen fashions. Send your son or daughter in to see one of our talented rising stars to perfect their look for a party, college interview, prom or graduation. The New Talent haircuts are only $27! SALON 01 RECOMMENDS: TOP 10 HAIR PRODUCTS! 1. The right shampoo. Have a professional recommend what is best for your hair type. Helpful Hint: More is not better. All you need is a nickelsized amount. Start at the scalp and work towards the ends. 2. Don’t forget to condition! Conditioners can help repair heat and chemical damage and can help protect your hair from future damage. 3. Find a good brush. A higher quality hairbrush with boar bristles will cause less damage than one with synthetic bristles. 4. Shine on by applying a small amount of shine gloss or balm to your hair right before you walk out the door. This helps create the polished look you receive when you visit your salon. Try Salon 01’s Shine and Define. 5. Dry shampoo is a must for every product wardrobe! This helps your hair stay clean and oil free without the need of jumping in the shower. Perfect for a touchup after the gym. 6. A quality blowdryer is a must! Never underestimate the difference a professional blowdryer can make. 7. Pick the proper styling aid! For fine hair, a volumizing mousse such as
Salon 01’s Root Boost gives the perfect pick-me-up for your hair. Got coarse hair? Choose a straightening balm to calm down the frizziness. 8. Looking for smoother hair? A silkening serum with natural almond and jojoba oil helps protect and smooth your hair, no matter the texture! Check out Aquage Silkening Oil. 9. Hot tools are in! Rollers, curling irons and flat irons are an easy way to get that polished or messy look you are going for. Remember: Choose a tool recommended by a professional stylists. Chances are their recommendation is made with ceramic which will help cut back on the damage caused by heat. 10. Finish off your ‘do with a good hairspray! Hairspray not only holds your style in place but protects it from humidity. Use a soft flexible hold to ensure you don’t end up with a “helmet head” effect. Salon 01’s Spray Me will do just the trick. Your Salon 01 stylist can recommend a customized product list perfect for your hair type and styling needs. Stop in for a product consultation today!

INSIDE & OUT
Plants that pleasantly survived harsh summer Commentary by Holly Lindzy Every year I like to review what worked well for me and what didn’t. This season was unprecedented regarding heat and precipitation so if something performs well, I’m unusually impressed. It’s times like these when true colors shine through. My first award of valiance goes to my clump Serviceberry. After five years in my landscape, it received no additional water. A risk, I know, but I like to test things. It’s a native so I let it show me what it’s made of and not once did it balk at the conditions. Now, as to whether or not it will give me some fall color is a whole different Oprah. Second, I think I’ve solidified the spot for favorite annual. Dragonwing begonia doled out the blooms all season long and yawned into a beautiful space in my container garden. Perfect green foliage accessorized with prolific bloom. I just can’t stop admiring it. Snapdragons were amazing at the start of the season, so I must add an honorable mention there. And the happiest of all the annuals this season had to have been annual vinca. . . hands down, a heat hoarding monster with effortless pizzazz. Perennial-wise, I’m a smidge disappointed. Even fuss free Rudbeckia sulked over the extended absence of moisture. If I had to choose Planting bulbs – It’s time to get those bulbs in the ground. Remember that quality plant bulbs do matter, don’t let October slip away before planting spring-blooming bulbs and dig the whole two to three times the height of the actual bulb. –bhg. com

Tucked away – With mowing season winding down, it will soon be time to store your yard equipment for the winter. If you use cold storage, don’t forget to drain the fluids from your mowers’ engines and give them a good cleaning prior to storing them. It also never hurts to get the blades sharpened now, when demand is less and a rapidly-growing yard isn’t breathing down your neck. - almanac.com Composting – With fall here, composting is viable. A few tips for maintaining your compost pile: don’t compost “diseased” foliage, don’t add weeds, do add vegetable waste, do cut up large additions so they break down faster and do mix it every week with a pitch fork. –goodhousekeeping.com

New front porch increases curb appeal
Commentary by Larry Greene
ORIGINAL EXTERIOR: This home is located in the Crooked Stick subdivision on the west side of Carmel and was built in the early 1980’s. The current owner has lived in the home for 17 years. REASONS FOR REMODELING: Why remodel? “When we originally bought the house it had a Tudor look to it, even though it was not a Tudor-style home. We removed the trim 5 years ago, but it looked too plain. We wanted to dress up the front of the house, and give it more curb appeal. I wanted people’s blood pressure to drop when they came up to the house!” ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS: The homeowner wanted to add elements of detail to the front façade. “My favorite part is the columns. The architectural details in the double columns and larger trim pieces gave the house the bit of wow I was looking for.” The existing vertical wood trim around the windows was removed and replaced with new painted cedar trim. STONE WALK WAY: The stone walkway is a favorite, too. New stone pavers were installed and flanked with 24” light posts wrapped in stone. The steps are topped with limestone and the face of the porch was covered with decorative stone to complement the existing brick. PORCH DETAILS: The existing porch, front door, steps and walkway were removed. A new enlarged porch foundation was built including a new shed roof with 8x8 cedar wood posts. The new porch includes rough-sawn cedar trim, beaded plywood ceiling and stone-wrapped columns with limestone caps. The new
After porch includes a cedar railing with 2x2 wood painted balusters. NEW ENTRY DOOR: The existing front door and sidelights were removed and new double doors were installed with ¾ glass. The owner commented, “The new doors not only help welcome our guests, but also add more light into the front hallway.” FAVORITE FEATURES: The owner commented on her favorite features. “The house is no longer plain and unwelcoming.”
