Education Board approves calendar; Some leave disappointed
By Robert Herrington • email@example.com The Noblesville Board of School Trustees unanimously approved a balanced calendar for the 2013-14 school year following a failed motion to table the decision after a group of parents asked to the board to reconsider. Noblesville is now the only district not using a traditional calendar in Hamilton County. Next school year will begin on Aug. 1 and end May 30. It includes two-week breaks in the fall, winter and spring, and any flex days needed would be scheduled for the week of June 2. Prior to the vote, school board member Chris Hamm said parents had made interesting points and suggested the board better inform the community and table the motion for 30 days. “I’m a little bit concerned of a public forum on a Monday and a vote a week later,” he said. “Parents have concerns or questions not addressed to their satisfaction. It’s a big decision for the corporation. . . What’s the harm in continuing this for 30 days?” School board member Julia Kozicki, who made the motion seconded by Pat Berghoff, said two-thirds of the 3,686 survey participants supported the move. Supt. Libbie Conner said the biggest impact of postponing the vote would be vacation planning. “We usually have a calendar a year in advance – way before now,” she said. “We’re cutting it

At the beginning of the meeting, parents such as Norman Williams addressed the board. Williams, a father of four and school board candidate, said the board should provide additional time for the community to do more research about the balanced calendar. “The message to parents is, You’re not listening,” he said. “Give them time to think or do their own research.” “It’s a little hasty,” added Amy Osgood. “I’m not able to voice my opinion as a parent or member of the community.” Assistant Supt. Steven Stephanoff headed the 20-member study committee comprised of parents, teachers, school administrators and a high school student, which was formed after a 2010 community survey found support for investigating a move to a balanced calendar. The commit-
tee made a presentation to the school board in June. A community survey was done online for one week and a public forum was held on Oct. 15 – eight days before the school board meeting – at which time the survey results were released. “Four thousand respondents is not a good cross section,” said Williams. “It seems rushed. . . What’s the hurry? Get it right.” Laura Paris also expressed her displeasure with the district’s timetable. “I’m also concerned with the urgency of the vote. There’s no need to rush,” Paris said. During her research, Paris said balanced calendars do not impact middle-class families that provide enrichments and non-traditional educational opportunities during the summer break. Instead, the data shows “low-income, highcrime and English as a second language in high population cities” are impacted academically by shorter summer breaks. “There’s no academic benefit for balanced calendar,” she said. Another concern raised by parents was childcare during the extended fall and spring breaks. “There were no concrete answers for single parents or two-income families and what to do with child-care and how they’re going to be able to pay for child-care,” Paris said.

Free college tuition program jumps 36 percent in Hamilton County firstname.lastname@example.org Legacy Fund President Terry Anker said the number of eligible students in Hamilton County enrolled in Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars program, which offers free college tuition to eligible students who observe a pledge to earn good grades and stay out of trouble, jumped by 36 percent. The 21st Century Scholars Enrollment Challenge is a part of Central Indiana Community Foundation’s College Readiness Initiative, which was created to increase educational attainment throughout Central Anker Indiana. Originally launched in 2010 in Marion County, the Enrollment Challenge awards school counselors with gift cards for enrolling 75 percent or more of eligible students – students who participate in a public school free- and reducedlunch program – into the state’s 21st Century Scholars Program. Legacy Fund, an affiliate of CICF, introduced the challenge to Hamilton County in May. According to community school corporation records, Hamilton County had approximately 8,500 free-and-reduced lunch students in the public school system in the 2012 school year; 32 percent of those eligible seventh- and eighth-graders were enrolled in the 21st Century Scholars Program (a total of 388 students) and 40 percent of eligible eighth-graders (a total of 247 students) were enrolled. Following the Enrollment Challenge, which ended on June 30, enrollment in the program by eligible students in Hamilton County had increased by 139 students – an increase of 36percent. Eighth grade enrollment jumped to 53 percent according to Regional Site Director Amy Parraga. “For first time in the 21st Century Scholar program’s history, more than half of all eligible 8th graders in Hamilton County are enrolled in the program,” said Anker. “As a result of the Enrollment Challenge, and school counselors who worked hard to get them into the program, these students are more likely to enroll in post-secondary opportunities following high school graduation. This is an important opportunity for them, as well as their families and our community.” Parraga also announced upcoming changes to the program. All students in the program must now begin using the scholarship within one year of high school graduation and have eight years of eligibility. Starting with the class of 2015, students must graduate high school with a minimum 2.5 GPA to receive the scholarship. Finally, students enrolled in the program on or before June 30, 2011 will not be required to have their family income reevaluated during their senior year. Students enrolled after that date will be required to participate in an income means test. All 21st Century Scholar eligibility information can be viewed at www.scholars.in.gov.

Noblesville parents of child with Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease encourage community awareness By Katy Frantz • email@example.com As a nurse, Shannon Oisten had promised herself that she would never be a mom who took her child to the pediatrician for every cold and ear infection. But having a child diagnosed with Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease, Shannon and her husband, Mike, have to keep a close eye on their daughter for a manifestation of the disease with either the onset of a rash or fever. The first indication that all wasn’t well for little Morgan Oisten was the immense pain a simple thing, like changing a diaper, caused her. Mike said she shrieked in pain. Then a rash appeared all over her small body. The Oistens took her to their pediatrician who transferred them to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis. Once there, 3-week-old Morgan was diagnosed with omphalitis, a serious infection of the umbilical cord that attacks all the internal organs. Only half a percent of children get omphalitis, and the disease has a 50 percent mortality rate. Without any hesitation the doctor ordered she be sent into surgery within the hour. “I was thinking, ‘We were just in a doctor’s appointment an hour ago, and now you’re telling me my daughter is going to die?’” Mike remembered. While spending 12 days in the hospital, the doctors were looking into the rash that had developed all over Morgan’s small body. Even after tests, the doctors couldn’t pinpoint the cause. Experts at Riley hospital connected with the National Institute of Health in Maryland. By the time Morgan was 8 months old she was diagnosed with NOMID. Two months later, NIH began treating the disease with Kineret, a daily injection that staves off the genetic inflammation of the spinal fluid. Once Morgan began receiving treatments, the rash disappeared. what is it?
NOMID is a rare disease. Only one in a million people have been diagnosed with it. Mike said there is one other girl in Indiana who has the same disease. Without the treatment, NOMID can cause mental retardation, loss of sight and hearing, and an also affect the growth of one's legs. Morgan was spared any serious repercussions usually caused by NOMID because of the early detection. As more doctors understand the symptoms, the better they can diagnose it sooner and the disease can be kept in check. “The doctors said [Morgan’s] legs were never going to be straight,” Mike said of his 4-year-old daughter who is walking. “Inside that shell is a wreck, but she’s doing fine.” Don’t let the devastating possibilities of the disease create the assumption that Morgan is a mild child. At her last appointment she met a new doctor. After reading Morgan’s history, Shannon said the doctor had expected to see a frail little girl. But there was Morgan ready to sit in the doctor’s lap and talk. Morgan also cares about those who are hurting or suffering from diseases. Mike recalled a moment when Morgan approached a girl with a deformed leg. Without hesitation she placed her hand on the girl’s leg and asked, “What’s wrong with your leg? Are you going to be OK?” As a result of NOMID Morgan is built much smaller than her peers, but otherwise she looks like any other child. According to her charts, she falls probably a year behind other 4-year-olds. “Her bone density is equal to that of a two and a half or 12 | October 30, 2012
What was the H&M Event? When: Oct. 19 Who: Peighton Isley, 9, and Olivia Johnson, 10, planned the event on their own initiative. They started planning the event in late spring and rallied family and friends to make the event happen. Where: Oak Manor Clubhouse in Westfield Why: The event honored two younger girls that are fighting equally rare diseases. The “H” stood for Henley Romine of Carmel who was diagnosed with stage IV High Risk Neuroblastoma in August 2010. The “M” was for 4-year-old Morgan Oisten of Noblesville. Diagnosed at 8 months with Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease, Morgan is one of two Hoosiers fighting the disease. The Oisten family attended the H&M fundraiser on Oct. 19, 2012. The proceeds will benefit their daughter by going to the NOMID Alliance, a nonprofit fueling research on autoimmune diseases.

3-year-old,” said Mike. “She’s a little more wobbly than others, but she can still climb ladders and do other things.” In spite of limiting physical capabilities, she is in a tumbling class given by the Noblesville Parks Dept. Her favorite activity she calls “climbing the rock wall” is an activity similar to a wall handstand. “Because she’s doing so well I don’t have fears like I did that something is going to go wrong,” said Shannon. “I just have such a great faith that the medicine is awesome and that she is going to do well with it.” Community support
While the Oistens appreciate the support of friends and coworkers in the community, there is very little awareness of the disease. Their hope is that a recent fundraiser for Morgan and another little girl, Henley Romine of Carmel, put on by two Westfield girls, Peighton Isley, 9, and Olivia Johnson, 10, would spread the word about NOMID even more. The money received from the fundraiser will be donated to Current in Noblesville
the NOMID Alliance, a nonprofit that funds research for autoimmune diseases. As a result of possible funding cuts to federal agencies, NIH could face a loss in grants that fund research. As the family has visited NIH during the past few years, it has been involved in NOMID research studies. A diary is a normal part of being in a study. Shannon takes the daily chore, recording temperature, headaches, ear infections and other details. Having just returned from a trip to NIH earlier this month, Morgan was involved in a study to test a drug that could potentially stave off NOMID. If the FDA approves the drug, then the Oistens will not have to return for a year, but if the drug is not approved, they will return after six months. Results will be known by the end of the year. “There’s still a lot that I don’t understand completely, but everyone at the NIH is really great about explaining things to us,” said Shannon. “We really have easy access to the doctors.” Donations to NOMID Alliance can be made online by visiting www.nomidalliance.org/support.php. www.currentnoblesville.com

Life lines It is our position that eliminating one’s land phone line may not be in our best interests. Although this is a growing trend, one element of not having a land line is how it affects calls to emergency services. Calls from cell phones are automatically directed to the nearest cell tower geographically. A call from a suburban or rural area conceivably could be directed to a tower in a neighboring county. Since first responders have designated areas to cover, a responder in southern Madison County could not respond to a call from northern Hamilton County. The time that it takes to redirect the call to the appropriate personnel could be the difference between life and death. Additionally, those who have moved and decided to retain cell numbers may want to reconsider that decision as well. Not only could an emergency call be directed to the wrong tower, but the old, likely out-of-area code number will not provide the agency with good information on the location of the emergency. Land lines may be old-fashioned, but they do automatically go to the appropriate emergency service agency.

Commentary by Terry Anker
Who do we trust? Do we trust our spouses? Our kids? Our parents? Ourselves? Or, do we trust strangers? Experts? Journalists? Government? This simple question has vexed human kind since we could first consider our own existence. Perhaps it harkens back to time in the cave when we most had to rely upon one another. If we chose a weak or irresponsible member to our clan, we’d likely not survive very long in the harsh reality of a sabertoothed world. So, we developed mechanisms to measure the veracity and reliability of the promised commitment of others. The most successful of us became acutely aware of deceit and chose to align with those more worthy of our confidence. The trust in us of others became crucial to our flourishing. Even now, centuries later, political candidates vie to convince us of their genuineness in a desire to advance their own agenda. But trust affects not only the trusted but also the beneficiary of that bond. Isn’t one
who expects, demands or even profits from the trust of another in turn responsible to be trustworthy themselves? For example, isn’t one who expects honesty and integrity from their own children creating a compact whereby they are held to exhibit that same honesty and integrity themselves? Of course, one can only be held to account for our own actions – we are not our brother’s keepers. Yet if we are honorable, can’t we expect honor from others. And if we choose to prevaricate, shouldn’t we expect others to practice treachery? Even then, we are never sure of another’s uprightness. Perhaps this reality roots the maxim, “in God we trust, all other must pay cash.” People are flawed and truth requires difficult choices. But even in a realm lacking a carnivorous threat, can we hope to survive without trust? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

While we're feeling just a bit more confident about the outcome of the presidential election on Nov. 6, we still strongly believe Republican challenger Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, has squandered an opportunity to blow up incumbent President Obama's oftrepeated stump speech that goes like this: “We can't go back to the failed policies of the past.” Actually, we agree wholeheartedly with that, but not in the way of which Obama would approve. You see, we believe our president has become the new George W. Bush, doubling down on failed policies that simply don't work. In other words, we fervently believe Romney should say that he agrees with the president in that we should not go back to the failed policies of the past. Those would be Obama's own policies, if you were wondering. ••• Musings from the third presidential debate: Did it strike anyone else that Obama seemed edgy and highly agitated, while Romney seemed more “presidential?” … Debate go-between Bob Schieffer of CBS News was the best of the three moderators in this series. And he stayed awake! Our opinion: Candy Crowley need not apply again. Jim Lehrer did a mostly credible job. Meanwhile, we’d vote for Ann Coulter, but the debate commission wouldn’t like her. At all.

Childcare missed in calendar talk We meet every customer by accident.
Editor, Regarding your article on Noblesville schools exploring a balanced calendar, I am disappointed that in the midst of evaluating all the factors that a balanced calendar would impact that there has been no mention of childcare. In general discussions on the subject, as well as your article and social media posts, much of the focus seems to be on vacations. As a working Noblesville parent, I am far less concerned with my vacation plans than with my day-to-day juggling of before school, after school, school break and summer childcare. The complexity of shuffling my children
from schedule to schedule and setting to setting throughout the year is already challenging, and frankly a balanced calendar – with more variation for longer periods – would increase that challenge. Not to mention that childcare options that are available to cover mid-year school breaks are less enriching compared to programs offered over the summer. I realize the balanced calendar measure is popular and likely to be implemented, but I think it’s a shame that the issue of childcare does not appear to have been raised in the discussions.

Pay increase demand shows principles Editor, Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear says his pay raise request is based on principle. I say his request tells me all I need to know about the mayor’s principles. In case you missed it, the Common Council gave the mayor a 5 percent pay raise for 2013 at Tuesday’s Council meeting. That was after he requested a 10 percent pay raise for himself in his budget. That’s right, while the recession lingers on, unemployment hovers near 6 percent in Noblesville (still the highest in the county), nonprofits continue to cut services because donations are down, businesses struggle to keep their doors open, most of us are just grateful to have jobs, and city employees are being awarded 2.5 percent raises, the mayor thinks he deserves 10 percent. Addressing the council before the vote, the mayor quoted New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and said it’s much easier to make popular decisions than to make tough ones. He says he prefers to be respected than loved, so we can presume a 10 percent raise is what he needs to be respected. In this case, the tough decision was the one that would add $10,000 to his personal bank account next year. The argument here is the same one made by overpaid CEO’s to their boards of directors. If
you don’t pay more money, the argument goes, you can’t attract the really talented people. Well, somehow, $100,000 (plus a car and health benefits) was enough to attract the mayor last year when he was running for office, but this year it’s about $10,000 short of what he thinks he deserves. What happens if he doesn’t get the raise? Is he going to quit? Find another mayor job? It’s a silly argument. There are plenty of talented people who would do the job for $100,000. The governor is paid less to run the entire state. As it turned, out the council sent the mayor a message by cutting the raise in half. Council President Greg O’Conner suggested 5 percent for the mayor, 7.5 percent for the clerk treasurer, and cut the council’s raise completely. O’Conner hit the target when he said the council doesn’t do this for the money and didn’t require a raise. Now there’s some leadership in tough times. The mayor bristled at the implication that he does do it for the money. He was right when he said it isn’t about the money because it truly isn’t. It’s about character. It’s about principle. And expecting that kind of increase in times like this gives more insight into the man’s principles than anything else he’s done in the past year. Mike Corbett, 46060

Formula a savior in nursing situations Commentary by Danielle Wilson Every once in a while I feel the need to rant. This is one of those times. In the hotseat today– lactation consultants. And before you hang me out to dry, let me state that, of course, breast milk is awesome. Go breast milk! Not so awesome are the pushy, condescending, self-righteous women who make you feel like a crackhead mama when you choose to use formula. Case in point: my twin sister. She is a firsttime mom who lives away from family. Her newborn daughter was constantly fussing and would never sleep for more than an hour or so. She still wet her diapers but didn’t seem to be thriving like the books say a little one should. So she did what any conscientious parent would do and visited the pediatrician. The doctor was disappointed in my niece’s lack of weight gain and recommended that my sister supplement her nursing with formula. He also suggested that she rent a breast pump so that she could see exactly how much milk she was producing. Worrying that she had been starving her baby and with post-partum hormones raging, my sister drove 40minutes to a lactation company to obtain the pump. Was she met with compassion? Validation? Encouragement? No. With a crying baby in her arms, my sister was subjected to a lengthy lecture on the unique advantages of breast milk and the destructive repercussions of Similac. This woman flat out told her that she
should ignore the advice of a medical professional and “just try harder.” Are you kidding me? How dare she! How dare she cause my sister, a new mother, to feel inadequate! Listen up, ladies. Breast feeding doesn’t always work. It’s not always easy and I firmly believe it is NOT always the best option for moms. I tried it with my first baby, and after two weeks of crippling sleep deprivation, I finally decided to let my husband lend a hand by taking a night feeding. The supplementing literally saved my sanity and probably our marriage. Babies two through four began receiving at least one formula bottle a day from the get-go so that I could be a happier (and, consequently, better) parent. And guess what? All of our children met every milestone on time and have been extremely healthy thus far. (Of course, that could also be because we chose to have them immunized, but that’s a whole ’nother column.) I am just so tired of hearing women criticize other women because they choose to use formula. Enfamil does not contain arsenic, people! It’s simply a healthy alternative to breast milk and in many circumstances, a lifesaver. And that’s my rant. Peace out.

Commentary by Mike Redmond I’m sure coffee lovers everywhere are overjoyed to learn that the price is actually coming down on the world’s most expensive coffee bean, Kopi Luwak. That’s the stuff that is otherwise known as Cat Poop Coffee, a marketing designation even more memorable than Mountain Grown. Take that, Juan Valdez. Kopi Luwak is an Indonesian coffee that is processed, if you will, by the digestive processes of the civet, a small animal that some say looks like a cat. I think it looks more like a big rat, but if you think Cat Poop Coffee is a tough sell, imagine how difficult Rat Poop Coffee would be. Here’s how it works: The civet eats coffee cherries. It poops coffee beans. The coffee beans are collected and sold for something like $60 for four ounces, which according to the story I found on the Weird Wide Interweb Thingie, where everything is always 100 percent true, comes to about $10 a cup. Supposedly, a trip through a civet’s lower digestive tract removes a good deal of the coffee bean’s acidity. This, of course, is a lot of civet hooey. Everyone knows the big deal about Kopi Luwak has nothing to do with acidity and everything to do with the fact that (a.) it came out of an animal’s butt, (b.) it is insanely expensive and (c.) some people will do any-
thing in the name of hipness. It isn’t the taste. While there are those who say they love it, you have to figure that anytime a tragically hip person spends $240 a pound for coffee that tragically hip person is going to say he loves it, because to say otherwise would open him up to the altogether reasonable assertion that he is a First Class Moron. Let us instead consult a food critic for The Washington Post who said Kopi Luwak tasted like Folgers. Then he went on to describe it as “petrified dinosaur droppings steeped in bathtub water.” Personally, I think he went a little over the top there. Folgers isn’t THAT bad. I grew up on Farm Coffee, boiled in a stovetop percolator until it achieved the consistency of blackstrap molasses. It was taken black and was concentrated enough to keep you awake through both senior English AND economics. Just the memory of it makes me a little jittery. I don’t drink much coffee anymore. What coffee I do drink usually comes from Tim Horton’s, which I find to be a nice, smooth blend processed in the customary fashion, which is good. Tim Horton was a hockey player and I Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline.com or P.O. Box 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244.

Robertson, Utnage win Halloween Writing Contest By Robert Herrington firstname.lastname@example.org
Lindsey Robertson and Ashley Utnage have been named the youth and adult division winners in the second Halloween Writing Contest sponsored by Current Publishing. Youth Division Winner – Ashley Utnage Ten-year-old Ashley, a Fishers resident, said creative costumes are her favorite thing about Halloween. “I make it or by accessories,” she said. “I’m going to be a cowgirl with one of my friends (this year).” Utnage Ashley’s topic center on proper etiquette when wearing costumes while out trick-or-treating.
“I was brainstorming one day and had a really cool idea,” she recalled. “This story has a lesson.” Ashley enjoys reading magical adventures and added her own interesting twist of Halloween night trick-or-treaters. “Adding a magical spell would be a cool twist to it,” she said. Ashley also has written her own book, Talent Trouble, about a kid who likes playing his musical instrument but isn’t any good and ends up winning the local talent show. “I really like writing stories,” said the St. Louis de Montfort fifth-grader. “All the kids in my class know I write the longest stories.” Adult Division Winner – Lindsey Robertson What a difference a year makes. Robertson came across the inaugural Halloween writing contest last year.

Priscilla’s Pumpkins By Lindsey Robertson
Priscilla was a serial gardener. The landscape around her home was the picture of perfection: manicured lawn, freshly mulched beds, trimmed hedges. A yard no weed dare take root in. A yard all the more impressive because she maintained it single handed. She had been widowed some years before and the neighbors said gardening was therapeutic for her. Priscilla’s horticultural pride was the vegetable patch behind the house, which contained the epitome of a pumpkin vine. The plant produced a single, perfectly proportioned pumpkin each year. Priscilla was as well known in the neighborhood for her annual pumpkin carving as for her gardening prowess. Her pumpkins never suffered the indecency 16 | October 30, 2012
of being hallowed; instead the pumpkin was left whole with intricate designs etched into the outer flesh. Sometimes the designs reflected events in Priscilla’s life, other times the spirit of the holiday. Several years ago there had been her late husband’s portrait, followed by a knife, a wrinkled human hand, then a raven, a cat, a trowel, and last year was her dachshund, Noodle. On Halloween, the un-carved pumpkin sat on Priscilla’s porch. She could not decide on what it should be. The first pumpkin had grown the year Jack died. No decision was needed that year as Jack’s face was already on the pumpkin when she picked it off the vine. The face had come as a shock— Jack’s body had never been found. Priscilla concluded the Jack pumpkin was a malicious prank and was relieved the next year when a plain pumpkin grew in. She’d cut the pumpkin off the vine and driven a knife in near the stem, intending to turn it into a proper Jack-o-Lantern.
“I wrote the story then but I didn’t have Internet and didn’t mail it before the deadline,” she said. When she saw this year’s notice, Robertson found her Robertson story, made a few changes and submitted it. While she has done creative writing in the past, this is the first writing contest the 29-year-old Noblesville has won. “I was aiming for something unique – not another haunted cemetery story,” she said. “I was trying to go for something a little different.” Decorations and pumpkin carving (the focus of her story) are what Robertson enjoys most about the October holiday. “I’m a grown adult that still decorates the house for Halloween,” she said.
warned you,” he said, hiding a grin. The old couple pulled into the driveway, and Robert hid behind a tree. He was scared they would get mad that everyone stole the candy. “Where did all of these pumpkins come from?” said the husband, clearly confused. The wife just smiled and said, “You’re tired. You need rest.” After the old man went inside, the woman walked over to Robert with the candy. He was frightened. “It wasn’t my fault. I tried to warn them.” “You did the right thing, so I am rewarding you. Thanks.” She handed over the gigantic candy basket with a warm smile on her face. Every Halloween, there’s someone who has a sign that says “Take one”. Every Halloween, there are kids who don’t make good decisions. But every year, there’s someone who does the right thing. Moral: Do what is asked and you shall be rewarded. The knife had vanished from her hand and the image of the blade appeared on the pumpkin’s surface. The following year she made the mistake of touching the top of the pumpkin. Angered by the loss of her hand, she had attempted to remove the plant, but it wouldn’t budge or succumb to any poison. Leaving a pumpkin on the vine was not an option, as some unfortunate animal wound up on the pumpkin’s flesh. Last year it had been Noodle. As evening approached, Priscilla made her way to the porch clutching a bowl of candy. She lost her footing on the uneven planks and the candy flew into the yard. Priscilla braced herself against the fall with her only hand. Her head came to a stop inches above the pumpkin. Then, with a sickening crack, her wrist gave way completely. While trick-or-treaters traipsed across Priscilla’s lawn in search of candy, their parents admired the pumpkin on the porch. The terrified expression on Priscilla’s self-portrait was alarmingly life-like.

Finding the right spot to party Tailgaters generally park in the same spot, every game, next to the same people. They like it that way. Some universities, such as Penn State, encourage this by assigning every space a number so that strangers really don’t have a chance to park next to regular tailgaters. Some colleges, like Northwestern and Indiana, have lots where they separate the louder student tailgate parties far away from other fans. Even pro teams have private lots for big spenders. This way the ambiance of any given tailgate lot should remain constant for its regulars with no big surprises. Now imagine that a stranger shows up in your reserved parking lot with a huge, loud, industrial generator that has no muffler. As this person sets up huge speakers and begins to raise the noise level by playing rock music, his entourage gathers and starts to consume large quantities of beer. This could change the mood of everyone in that lot who were used to quiet upscale tailgating. This happened to us at a recent game. It wasn’t appreciated. Several people complained to the police. Tempers were raised. A word to the wise is to have consideration for others who are near you. If you find yourself in an area where the tailgaters frown on your idea of a party, it might be good for you to move to a
spot away from the crowd. Here’s a recipe for a quiet adult tailgate party to start off your day of socializing. It’s for a great salsa that is also heart healthy. It’s called Kiwi Salsa.
Ingredients: 2 Kiwis peeled and diced; 1 small red onion chopped; 1 chopped red bell pepper; 1 clove of garlic (crushed); 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped; 2 tablespoon lemon juice; 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes Preparation: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve on endive, baked chips or quartered pitas.

Safety Not Guaranteed • R, 85 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd In addition to being one of my favorite films 2012, “Safety Not Guaranteed” also nabs the title of Best Movie Nobody’s Seen. This tiny indie came and went from theaters quickly but inspired plenty of passion among the few who bought tickets. This quirky black comedy/drama is about a trio of journalists sent to check out a cryptic help-wanted ad for a companion to travel through time. “Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before,” it concludes. Aubrey Plaza, best known for TV’s “Parks and Recreation,” plays Darius, a cynical intern looking not so much for her big break as something to break the monotony. She finds it in Kenneth (Mark Duplass), the odd but oddly charming fellow behind the ad. Paranoid and defensive, he
slowly starts to let his guard down and a nascent romance begins to take form. Do people in this story really travel through time? I won’t tell you, not only to save the surprise but also because it’s not really germane to the success of this film. “Safety Not Guaranteed” does not dazzle us with sci-fi hocus-pocus, rather studies what effect the possibility of its existence has on a small group of sharply-drawn characters. What a daffy, dark, joyous ride. Movie: ARead more of Chris Lloyd’s review of current films and DVDs at www. captaincritic.blogspot.com or www. thefilmyap.com.

Serving up pizza, Cook’s Style By Mark Johnson • firstname.lastname@example.org Scott Cook knows pizza. After all, the new pizzeria at 14300 Mundy Dr., Noblesville proudly bears his family’s name. That pride is evident in the commitment to community, the commitment to quality, and above all, commitment to each customer. “I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business,” Cook said with an enthusiastic smile, “and that is the most rewarding part of it. Food is important. I like being able to provide good quality for a good price, and at the same time, help the community.” Cook’s Pizza has deep roots in the Noblesvillle community. Founded in 1971, Cook’s motto has remained consistent: “Hometown and Homemade.” With those words, a 40-year bond between the community and Cook’s Pizza was forged. “After college, I chose Noblesville because I like the small town feel. This is a perfect place for me and my family, and the perfect place to start my career. I love this area,” he said. Cook also knew exactly what he was looking for to begin his new career. “This is a great community, with a great school system and quite a few franchise pizza restaurants. A great place to start a business,” he said. In Cook’s view, however, that business must also help to serve the community. Through that commitment to community service ideals,

Cook’s Pizza partnered with the Fisher’s High School athletic department. “I chose athletics because I love sports,” Cook jokingly confessed. “But sports is good for the kids because it keeps them busy and gives them something to do, but it also teaches them responsibility.” Cook also utilizes the business to assist the community in another way: the hiring of local high school students. “It’s awesome to be able to help the students with their first job, to teach them different skills such as multi-tasking,” he said. “I try to remember all those things that I learned in high school and on my first job so that I can help the students the same way my boss, my teachers, my coaches helped me. Teachers are a tremendous influence on young people.” For more information on Cook’s Pizza, visit mycookspizza.com or call 776-9922.

Is ‘alright’ all right?
Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question from Jeanne Flanders: I enjoy your commentaries. They bring memories of English classes during the 1950s with Mr. Eiler. Mr. Eiler had been my mother’s English teacher in the 1930s. Mr. Eiler had a list of words written on the black board that were not acceptable. If a student used one of his no-no words on any homework, that paper received an automatic goose egg. As the year progressed, the list of no-no words grew longer. At the top of his list was alright. Using alright was all wrong. Answer: I’ve received a couple of letters about the word “alright” recently. Some of them pointed out I’ve even slipped and used it myself a few times. Thankfully, my wonderful readers were on stand by to correct my error. I’m glad they did, as it highlights an important tenet of good grammar: Use of poor grammar should be pointed out and ridiculed as publicly and humiliatingly as possible, especially when the offender has the hubris to write a weekly column about it. Just kidding. But on to “alright,” which is, as you may have guessed by now, anything but all right. “Alright” is part of a growing list of colloquialisms which
has snuck its way into everyday usage. Other words on the list include “irregardless,” “anyways” and, shudder, “like” used as a conjunction. These words are so commonly (mis)used, in fact, that Microsoft Word includes them in its dictionary, save for “irregardless.” Now, as grammarians, we must leave room for the language to grow, and it should be noted that “alright” has its defenders. Those in its corner say it has gained a colloquial distinction from “all right.” “All right,” they argue, signifies that something is proper or agreeable, whereas “alright” signifies that something is average or simply acceptable. In that case, you might say a perfectly laid out table is all right in preparation for guests to arrive, but the lukewarm coffee you end up serving them is “alright.” I wouldn’t necessarily say that, mind you, but some might. At any rate, dear readers, please do not hesitate to nudge me back onto the path of proper grammar should you see me stray. It is only together that we achieve perfection, after all. Just be gentle about it, all right? Jordan Fischer is an editor and investigative reporter for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at projects@ youarecurrent.com.

Prevail receives funding for 2013 project firstname.lastname@example.org Prevail, Inc. of Noblesville has received funding through a grant from the Office for Victims of Crime, within the U.S. Department of Justice, to promote community awareness of crime victims’ rights and services during 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. The week of April 21–27, 2013, is National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This annual observance, first designated by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, seeks to increase general public awareness of, and knowledge about the wide range of rights and services available to people who have been victimized by crime. The theme for 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is “New Challenges. New Solutions.” Prevail was one of the 77 projects recommended by the National Association of VOCA Assistance Administrators and selected for funding by OVC for 2013 from the 169 applications that were submitted nationwide. OVC Acting Director Joye Frost said the community awareness project helps generate wide-
spread public awareness of crime victims’ rights and needs and the importance of engaging all Americans in victim assistance efforts. “Recent studies show that too many crime victims and survivors do not avail themselves of the many services in our communities that can help them through very devastating experiences,” she said. Hamilton County’s community awareness project will be a Criminal Justice “Odyssey” Open House Learning Activity held on April 25, 2013. The open house will be a collaboration with Alternatives, Inc. (an emergency domestic violence shelter located in Madison County) and many other agencies in Hamilton County that assist victims of crime. The event will focus on taking community members through each step of the experiences a victim would encounter when affected by a crime. For additional information about 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week activities or about victims’ rights and services in Hamilton County, contact Natasha Robinson at 773-6942 or visit www.prevailinc.com.

The power of family patterns Commentary by Kristen Boice Family patterns, both healthy and unhealthy, have a legacy and power for future generations. We are grateful for healthy patterns. The unhealthy patterns tend to be more difficult to confront. And, these can teach us the most when we are open to exploring them. How often do we stop and examine what we might be passing down to our children or those around us? Often, we are just doing what we know. It’s important to explore why we think, feel and act the way we do. Sometimes we are on auto-pilot and not awake to our daily actions and how they show up. Taking time to explore your unhealthy patterns will help stop the multi-generational transmission of issues. It is not about getting stuck or blaming our past. It’s about creating insight, becoming aware of what we want to do differently and then taking action to change it. Below are a few key areas to begin your journey of making a lasting change. 1. Explore the role of guilt and shame. Do you struggle with guilt or feeling bad? Do you use guilt to “get” your children to do what you want them to do? Was guilt or shame used in your family system as a form of control or manipulation? Write out how you use shame and guilt with others and yourself. Let go of the “should’s” and start accepting yourself for who you are. We are human beings who are imperfect. The key
is to grow and learn from our choices so we are more joyful, happy and at peace. 2. Look at boundaries. What were the boundaries in your family growing up? Were they rigid or did you not have any rules? We teach other people how to treat us. Did you learn to set healthy boundaries with others? Do you set them with your children? Write out what your boundaries are and start communicating what you will and won’t tolerate in a relationship. 3. Understand your feelings. Were you able to express your feelings or did you have to hold them in? Are you uncomfortable when others express how they feel? Some people neglect their own feelings and needs by taking care of others, even when others aren’t asking for it. This may lead to feeling resentment and neglected. You are not responsible for fixing or changing your whole family. You are responsible for you, your choices and making changes This is some of the most powerful and transformative work you can do. Be patient with yourself. It takes courage and a willingness to be accountable. It takes one person to change the pattern. So, start with you!

COLOR YOUR WORLD! Did you know that trained stylists, who have mastered the art of dimensional color, are able to strategically place highlights and lowlights that work with the shape of your haircut? Consulting with a professional, rather than trying to alter your hair color alone, will ensure that you achieve the look you are going for! Book an appointment at Salon 01 now and update your look for the new season!
CONCEALING YOUR BREAKOUT IN 5 EASY STEPS! 1. Treat: Using a salicylic acid treatment or a salicylic-glycolic acid combination. This will help dry out the pimple and assist in clearing the complexion. 2. Prep: Apply moisturizer and primer as usual, but avoid putting them directly on your pimple(s) in order to keep your impending makeup from slipping off. Tip: dab a clean cotton swab over the pimple to ensure it's free of product. 3. Apply foundation: After sweeping foundation on all over, use a nonlatex sponge on the area where there's a pimple to stipple/push the makeup into the skin. 4. Conceal: Take a fine-tipped concealer brush and use a little concealer that has salicylic acid built in. Lightly layer the medicated concealer right on top of the pimple, making sure the color completely matches your foundation. Remember: if you go too light, you're highlighting the area, if you go too dark you're creating a spot. 5. Powder: Finish with a light dusting of yellow-tinted powder. This will set the product onto the blemish, and also, that yellow tint will counteract any redness. KEEP YOUR EYES LOOKING BRIGHT WITH THESE EASY TIPS! 1. Curl your eyelashes and add a coat of mascara. The lift will help your eyes look more open and awake instantly. 2. Dab some concealer under your eyes to mask dark circles. Focus an orange-tinted concealer from the inner corner of your eye to the middle of your iris for the most natural coverage. 3. Line the inner rim of your eye with a white liner. This will make the whites of your eyes look larger, which will make you look more awake. 4. Pale skin is a giveaway of the sleep-deprived. Swipe bronzer along your hairline, from the tops of your ears to the bottom of your lips, and along your jawline. Finish with a dusting of blush on the apples of your cheeks.

The Atlantis, Bahamas IntroducingThe All-New 2013
Commentary by Tracy Line I get many inquiries about the Atlantis in the Bahamas. I recently stayed there, so I thought I’d share information about it. The Atlantis property is huge. We stayed four days and did not see everything. What’s filling this expansive acreage? A 50,000 square foot casino, 140-acre water park (Aquaventure), 11 pools, fitness center, spa, 6 areas of lodging, a dolphin experience center, shops galore and the world’s largest marine habitat. Oh, and over two dozen dining venues and nightclubs. All in all, outside of the beautiful beach with crystal clear blue water, I felt like I was in Las Vegas. The resort grounds are well kept, the amenities numerous, and the staff goes out of its way for guests. I also got lost several times (just like I do at the hotels in Vegas). Lodging options aren’t inexpensive. There are 3 main towers: Royal, Coral and Beach. Royal is in the center of the property and is the priciest tower. Coral is next to it, and the Beach Tower (least expensive) is next to it. Beach Tower is the oldest, and furthest from everything but offers a nice beach. You can live in the condos at the Reef and Harborside Resort has apartments by the marina. At the other end of the property is the Cove. This resort is elegant, peaceful Koi ponds, contemporary style and a private pool and beach. Top spot outside the U.S. – Looking for the top destination outside of the country for vacation? Look no further than Cancun, Mexico. The warm locale tops a list of 10 places Americans travel to, including Paris, France. – nbcnews.com Looking presidential – Esquire acknowledged a handful of U.S. politicians from around the country who take the oh-so political suit, turn it on its head or get rid of it. The list includes Vice President Joe Biden, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and many others. –esquire.com

Rumor has it the stars stay here. I can’t blame them. The resort is not all-inclusive but offers meal plans. They’re a good idea: food, drinks and extras can get expensive (there is even a charge for the fitness center). The Atlantis is a nice property for those who like action, activity and water fun. It offers great family adventure and is a nice getaway for couples wanting to enjoy the beach, a la Las Vegas. Tracy Line is a travel writer and agent, and the owner of Noblesville Travel.

INSIDE & OUT
Adding a wine cellar in the basement Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL BASEMENT: This home is located in the Laurelwood subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The current owner has lived in the home for 17 years and the house was built in 1991. While most of the basement was already finished, there was an unfinished area that provided room for the addition of a wine cellar. WHY BUILD A WINE CELLAR: The owner had been storing cases of wine in the corner of the unfinished utility room. “We have developed an interest in wine over the last 10 years. We visit Italy a lot and have begun buying wine over there. We had some rough racking in the basement, but it was not organized.” WINE STORAGE VS. TASTING TABLE: “At first we were going to have a tasting room built, but we realized that we would not be drinking wine in the basement so we made it into just a wine cellar.” ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS: The design called for the room to be framed out at roughly 10’ x 10’ and includes room for 1,100 bottles of wine. The room includes mahogany wine rack-
ing and trim with mahogany wood paneling on the walls. The door to the room includes 48” insulated mahogany double doors. The ceiling is covered with mahogany wood panels, trim and crown molding.
Before LIGHTING: The room includes new Xenon under cabinet accent lighting along with new recessed can lights on dimmer switches. DISPLAY CABINET: The back wall includes a base cabinet with a quartz countertop and backsplash featuring stacked mosaic stone tile under an arched valance. The floor tile is stone tile laid in a herringbone installation pattern.
After FAVORITE FEATURES: The owner commented on her favorite part. “The wine cellar is something we really wanted - it is so nice to have everything organized now. We can easily see what we have, and the area is much more functional and beautiful. It is the best room in the house!”
