Cops keeping kids warm, smiling

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

As temperatures continue to drop, the importance of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 198’s Shop with a Cop program conpublic service tinues to rise. On Dec. 7, 75 area children participated in the program at Noblesville’s Meijer store, 17000 Mercantile Blvd., and picked out warm winter clothes to protect them from the elements. “It’s an opportunity to see in real time a positive impact in the community – even if it is just one or two children,” said Noblesville Police Officer Jon Williams, who has coordinated program very year since its beginning. “All of the officers have been called to negative situations. We like to think as police officers that in the larger scheme, we are making the world a better place. For this one to two hours timeframe you are making a difference that lasts a lot longer than this singular event.” Williams said the Shop with a Cop participants – infants to 16-year-olds – come from a holiday assistance list given to the Noblesville F.O.P. by Nancy Chance of Good Samaritan Network or from recommendations of police officers. “One officer is out shopping with the family he recommended,” Williams said. “He dealt with the

family, been in their home, seen the rough conditions and time they were going through.” Shop with a Cop participants walk around the store, and, with the help of adults, pick out winter clothes including coats, gloves, shirts, pants, boots and even underwear and pajamas. Once all the children have the proper clothes for the cold climates, they head over to the toy department to select a present. The Shop with a Cop program has expanded to a family affair. “Even our officers older children come and help out,” Williams said. “I let my wife pick out the clothes and I push the cart,” F.O.P. Lodge President Mike Sadler said. Officer Matt Johnston and his wife, Beth, have been volunteering together for 10 years. “It’s a more comfortable situation for the females,” Matt said. “I don’t know what they need. I don’t want them to feel uncomfortable talking to the officers.” “Spouses make a good team. We’re used to buying for our kids,” Beth said. ‘It’s something we look forward to because you know you are making it a Christmas for them.” Those interested in donating to next year’s fund can contact Williams at 770-5754 or mail the donation to: Noblesville F.O.P. Lodge No. 198, P.O. Box 1303, Noblesville, 46061.

Receiving seed catalogs before Christmas? To Mike Redmond that seems wrong. When they arrive at their customary time, after Christmas, in the dead of winter, seed catalogs speak of the coming spring, and the wonDVD review derfully optimistic act of planting a Columnist Chris Lloyd thinks most movies today are too long. “Pris- garden. If the seed catalogs really are oners” is not a short flick: just a hair over 150 minutes.

The City of Noblesville has brightened and heightened its holiday spirit downtown. It has also departed from its downtown Classic Christmas theme by purchasing new decorations for street poles – trees and snowflakes. “The opportunity to change presented itself,” said Alaina Shonkwiler, Noblesville economic development specialist. “We had the classic lights for so long, we’re hoping the trees have an impact.” Shonkwiler said the old swirl lights were 7 years old and had become brittle from being exposed to the harsh winter conditions year after year. After last Christmas, discussion began on replacing them with Winterland, the company that installs the decorations at Forest Park. “We looked at a lot of different options and Winterland pitched what would fit in downtown,” Shonkwiler said. Since there are no street trees downtown the tree displays give that illusion. “We don’t have the opportunity to decorate actual trees today,” Shonkwiler said. “The tree branch idea is similar to what Gatlinburg does.”

Shonkwiler said the tree displays are located on every other pole. At each corner of the Courthouse Square are four snowflake decorations. Shonkwiler said the lights extend one block off the square in each direction. On Conner Street, the decorations begin at 16th Street and run to just over the bridge, west of downtown. Logan Street lights extend to 10th Street because of residences. “With the green poles we liked the look of white garland and lights because it looks like snow,” Shonkwiler said. “I’ve seen so many families come and take their photos in front of the new decorations downtown.” In addition to the city, Hamilton County has increased its holiday display this year. To ensure the displays didn’t clash, Shonkwiler said the two government entities worked together. “We talked about combining forces,” she said. “The city does decorations on street poles. Hamilton County does decorations on the Courthouse Square lawn, fencing and its trees.”

Riley Holiday Cards offer friends and family more than season’s greetings during the holidays. Designed by patients at Philanthropy Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, proceeds from the sale of the cards benefit Riley Children’s Foundation’s year-end giving campaign, The Gift of Hope Happens Here. The program, which has been ongoing at Riley Hospital for approximately 20 years, allows patients to apply their creative skills to design cards for the season of giving. One of the five artists is Lowees Hadad, 12, of Noblesville. Hadad was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma on Feb. 2. Since then, he has had 11 chemotherapy sessions with the support of a special Riley Hospital for Children nurse, Cathy Wilson. Lowees’ parents, Laoi and Amal, cannot speak highly enough of the care that has been given to their son. Amal has told Lowees’ physician, Holly Knoderer, to treat her son as if he were her own. “Riley has given us a second chance,” Amal said. Hadad is a seventh grader who loves to play Battlefield 4 on Xbox. A highlight for him has been the daily lunch visits from one of his physicians. The two of them play Xbox together – a time Hadad said he looks forward to every day. Hadad’s card has a Christmas Tree design. The other Riley Holiday Card artists include Isa-

Emerald Ash Borer infestation causes tree, budget problems By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com A small green insect, roughly the size of a quarter of a penny, is causing major environmental and budgetary issues for the City of Noblesville. cover story Noblesville Urban Forester Paul Lindeman said the Emerald Ash Borer will be responsible for the city losing thousands of street trees and may wipe out an entire species. “There are 5,000 ash street trees between the curb and sidewalks in Noblesville. After tree Lindeman removal there will probably be less than 1 percent, if that,” he said. Ash is the second tree species to be under attack from an insect – the first being Dutch Elm disease years ago. “The Emerald Ash Borer is a really pesky insect. They lay larva into the bark and deplete the water and nutrients inside the tree. The adults exit the tree and attack outside the tree,” he said.

The problem Lindeman said ash trees were selected as street trees because they are fast growing, single trunk and do not have a “litter problem.” “They are really good shade trees and native,” he said. Ash trees were primarily used as the sole street trees in subdivisions built 10 to 15 years ago. “There are a few that have hundreds of ash trees. They’re going to lose a couple hundred at a time,” Lindeman said. “Block after block of nothing left.” Federal rules prohibit the planting of ash trees since EAB was discovered and in the past five years the city has incorporated tree diversity in new developments. “Diversity is a real simple forestry principal. You have a better chance of having trees after infestation,” Lindeman said. “Diversifying 15 years ago would have helped on impact.” The city has already had two wholesale subdivision removals. River Run has three trees, only one mature, after 53 ash trees were removed and The Meadows Estates has only a handful of trees left in its subdivision after 73 trees were reduced to stumps. “Unfortunately that’s going to be a common thing in some other older subdivisions,” Lindeman said. Lindeman said the city is replacing ash with trees similar in growth and branching habits. He said possible species include

Japanese Tree Lilac, Green Vase Zelkova and Hybrid Elm.

Treatment The Legacy Tree Project has been treating trees for four years. Lindeman said treatments cost $99 per tree each year and treatment cycles are for five years. “You have to do it every year once you start,” Lindeman said. The treatments, which go into the roots and are carried up the tree, will prevent the bugs from damaging the trees. Lindeman said after the fifth and final year, the trees are safe if the insect has cycled out of the area. The Legacy program is treating 200 trees in Forest Park and across the city. “All are doing well,” Lindeman said. The biggest issue with EAB is detection. “We don’t know if the insect is there and it is doing damage on the inside of the tree for up to two years,” Lindeman said. Homeowners who are unsure if their trees are infected should look for signs, contact a professional to inspect the tree or remove it. “They should think about starting over with a different species,” Lindeman said. “Once they move into a tree in any form, it’s done.”

The plan In an effort to spread the cost over a longer period of time, the Noblesville Street Dept. has created a 10-year plan for tree removal and planting. “Unfortunately it comes down to being a financial burden that doesn’t fit into the budget,” Lindeman said. “We’re trying to stretch out costs for budgeting concerns. We have no budget for something this large.” The department plans to replace 400 trees a year for 10 years. Lindeman said it is not known if all the trees will be planted in the spring or divided in half with spring and fall plantings. “Winter, when we are not plowing snow, is the ideal time to do tree removal,” Street Dept. Director Patty Johnson said. Johnson The estimated cost to Noblesville for its Emerald Ash Borer problem is $1.1 million. For 2014, $110,000 will be used from the city’s COIT Fund to pay $100,000 for tree planting and $10,000 for removal. Lindeman estimates an additional $110,000 will be needed for the next nine years. “It’s more than what we normally do in a year,” he said. “We could be removing trees for two to four years.”

The Emerald Ash Borer

• What is it? A wood-boring beetle that kills North American ash trees. • When did it get here? The beetle first arrived from Asia in wooden shipping material. It was first detected in the Detroit/Windsor area in 2002. Since then it has spread north in Canada and south into Indiana and Ohio. According to the USDA, the insect has been detected in Georgia, New Hampshire and Colorado. • How is it spread? Naturally – On its own, EAB moves slowly through the landscape, only about half of a mile per year. Human-assisted – People greatly accelerate EAB’s expansion when they move infested ash firewood and logs to new areas. EAB infestations outside of the Detroit area are the result of people moving ash firewood, nursery stock and logs. • What does it do? Starves ash trees of nutrients and water by tunneling under bark. • Is it harmful to humans? No. EAB is a threat to one species of tree and unfortunately has no natural predator to control the problem. - Source: USDA

By the Numbers More than 25 million trees have been infected in the United States and Canada by the Emerald Ash Borer. “It’s spreading and going to keep going,” Noblesville Urban Forester Paul Lindeman said.

It costs $275 for labor and material to replace a tree.

1:1

Lindeman said trees will not be replanted for every ash tree removed due to overplanting. Most trees will be replaced but others will be spaced out in large areas.

1%

Noblesville will likely have less than 1 percent of its 5,000 ash street trees due to EAB.

Bailout of GM proves disaster

Santa’s little helper

Well, we – as in all of us – sadly (and badly) lost our shirts on this deal. See, you and we no longer own any slice of General Motors. Last week, the U.S. Treasury Dept. sold the remainder of its more than 31 million shares in the company. Originally, it had 500 million back in 2010. Net-net: Taxpayer loss on what once was called Government Motors is a stunning $10.5 billion. The UAW thanks you. But really, in the face of the rising national debt, it seems like a simple rounding error, although we would disagree with that. Treasury says it recouped $39 billion from selling its GM stake, but it had put $49.5 billion of taxpayer money directly into the GM bailout. Honestly, did you really believe the balance would be $0 at any time in the wake of this “relief initiative?” Let’s see: We have or have had this effort, Cash for Clunkers, ObamaCare and other “inventions” too numerous to print in this limited space. But remember, we were promised change, and the administration certainly has delivered on that assurance. ••• Since the first of 2010, Noblesville has grown in number of total households in ZIP codes 46060 and 46062 from 24,200 to 27,250. That 11.2-percent increase through four years, we believe, is a function of an improving local economy and the fact that many see Noblesville as a truly emerging municipality and a great place to call home, both of which we never would argue. Under Mayor John Ditslear’s leadership, the city is headed in the right direction, and we like what we see. ••• As Christmas and New Year’s are Wednesday holidays this year, your edition of Current will arrive, per usual, the day before.

Through the looking glass Commentary by Terry Anker Since its beginning in September 1905, The Indiana Society of Chicago has hosted an annual dinner bringing together Hoosiers and Indiana expatriates who reside in the Second City. The venerable institution lauds the values of education, commerce, philanthropy and fellowship. Moreover, it is a great time to get together with friends from across our own state and cousins now, in some case long, domiciled in the Windy City, for a good meal, quality entertainment (this year’s speakers included former Indiana University basketball coach, Bobby Knight, fittingly introduced by longtime rival and former Purdue University basketball coach, Gene Keady), and general good humor (Knight spoke of Keady’s notorious comb-over while Keady couldn’t pass recounting stories of Knight’s legendary temper). Chicago is, as the song recounts, “my kind of town - Chicago is.” My bride and I exchange the cool winter days of Central Indiana for the frigid winter days up north. We celebrate the weekend

by renting a room in some downtown hotel, shopping a little, seeing friends and visiting with family. With each trip I am reminded how much of a small town boy I can be and what a cultural exchange can come from a 175-mile trip. This time, our room was positioned on a high floor in a tall building directly across the street from an equally lofty residential building. The smooth glass front of the edifice looked like a Rubik’s Cube of humanity. Each window displayed a life; the residents seemed unaffected by their role in these dioramas. One was a family home. One appeared to be a storage unit. Another was a bachelor pad. One woman found Sunday morning at 11 a.m. the ideal time to clean her apartment while nude. Thanks to Indiana Society for its service to Hoosiers in Chicago. It is always memorable. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK “The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions”

- Leonardo da Vinci

The Humane Society for Hamilton County has a special place in my heart. About a month after my wife and I were married we adopted a Boston terrier puppy from the Humane Society. It was a little unexpected but Executive Director Rebecca Stevens knew I wanted that breed and when a neglected little guy was brought in we couldn’t get him home fast enough. At this time every year, HSHC starts its annual Homeward Bound for the Holidays Adoption Campaign which features 20 shelter animals – 10 dogs and 10 cats. Unlike our pet, these are animals that have been waiting for homes the longest or are in the most urgent need of a home. To help these four-legged friends find a new family, each of the featured animals comes with an incentive package valued at nearly $1,000 to encourage potential adopters to consider one of these deserving animals. Adoption fees for the featured 20 are also reduced to just $20 through Dec. 31. If a new animal is not applicable for your situation, there are other ways to help. Volunteering is always an option or you could donation tax deductible items on the HSHC holiday wish list. Wish list items includes bleach, paper towels, canned cat and dog food, feral cat dens, poop bags, adoption folders, natural balance limited ingredient diet, gift cards for Tractor Supply, Walmart, Lowes, Staples, Meijer and gas cards, white copy paper, kongs and nylabones. When you’re checking off items on your holiday shopping list, please remember the Humane Society. ••• In addition to being an impending beat down of the Sacramento Kings, the Indianapolis Pacers Jan. 14 home game also is Noblesville Community Night. Noblesville Schools’ students will have their hand in a little bit of everything – from performing music in the concourse to taking center court. The deadline to order discounted tickets is Dec. 18 and orders can be made online at www.noblesvilleschools.org. Interested in the game but need more info?

All I want for Christmas

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

The big day approacheth, people, and honestly, all I want is a new front door. Our current one, if not dead-bolted, allows streams of humor cold air into the house, occasionally producing a slight whistle. This isn’t that big of a deal except that it now requires between seven and 51 attempts to unlock. But hey, nothing says “Merry Christmas” like home improvement. Am I right? Of course, this may just be me, so I’ve listed a few suggestions for the more normal lady in your life. If she has young children, go with a serenity theme. Think massages, babysitters, perhaps a date night. Forget clothes or jewelry. Assuming you correctly guessed her size and accessory preferences (and let’s face it, that would be a Christmas miracle), they’d only be ruined by spit up or thrown down a vent. And definitely no cooking or cleaning appliances. She is sacrificing her happiness for those soul-sucking cuties, and she does not need to spend her precious free time vacuuming or sautéing. If you can somehow manage to send her away for a long weekend to Sedona, Ariz., it will be a very happy New Year, indeed. What of the gal with ’tweens and teenagers? Three words: Noise. Canceling. Headphones. These puppies will drown out not only the hysterical screams of sisters fighting over the flat iron but also the incessant rat-tat-tat of Xbox

Battlefield, volume cranked to high heaven. Pair them with a case of Chardonnay and another of Febreeze, and you’ll brighten her usually foggy days more efficiently than Rudolph. Newly married with no kids? The wintery sky’s the limit, my man. Just about anything you buy should go over well so long as it doesn’t reflect an ulterior motive on your part. For example, when she unwraps that 50-inch flat screen and you say it’s for watching Downton Abby, she’s going to see right through your man-cave dream of hosting the boys for Monday Night Football. I’m not saying you can’t go for it, but trust me, if the ruse fails, the Grinch won’t have anything on your lovely bride. Better to go with a framed photo from your honeymoon. Desperate for a last-minute gift? Chocolate is always appropriate, as are Panera gift cards. Women generally like to eat their feelings, and we feel better about doing it with Russell Stover or at a zero-playscape establishment. Of course, you can always buy her a copy of my book (www.danielle-wilson.com). Good luck, and if you see Doo, please remind him all I want for Christmas is a new front door. Peace out.

Conductor brings Handel’s ‘Messiah’ to Clowes Hall By Jay Harvey • editorial@youarecurrent.com

The conductor of one of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s recurring special events is certain he knows what symphony makes Handel’s “Messiah” so special to so many people. “There are very few pieces in music that have enjoyed such longevity, such fame, such renown,” James Feddeck said recently in a phone interview from New York. “It was written and conceived for the English-speaking world, and that’s something to celebrate.” Many masterworks with seasonal associations came from the European continent, with texts in French, German and Italian. The Germanborn Handel achieved his greatest fame in England, and invented the English sacred oratorio, a form that followed his eventually dwindling success as a composer of Italian operas and, with “Messiah” in particular, gave him permanent esteem in the United Kingdom. In its annual joining of forces with the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir to present “Messiah,” the ISO has engaged Feddeck, who recently completed four seasons as assistant conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra. Though the 1742 work is known mainly for its choruses (“Hallelujah” especially), solos that generally require professional singers carry much of the work’s message, conveyed in selections from the Old and New Testaments made for the composer by Charles Jennens. Soloists in the Dec. 21 Clowes Hall performance are soprano Jessica Beebe, mezzo-soprano Amanda Russo, tenor Benjamin

James Feddeck (Submitted photo)

Werley, and baritone Zachary Coates. Feddeck had had several phone conversations with Symphonic Choir director Eric Stark before the interview, and will meet with the soloists and choir once he arrives Dec. 18. “Working with such accomplished musicians, everybody shares the enthusiasm together, and the process is very uplifting,” said Feddeck, 30. He is a graduate of Ohio’s Oberlin Conservatory, which awarded him its first Outstanding Young Alumni Award in 2010. As popular as “Messiah” is, Feddeck is aware that it’s a challenge for contemporary attention spans.

“I keep the entire Christmas portion intact, but I do make significant cuts in the second and third parts,” he said, while trying to ensure that “the work still maintains the concept and the architecture of the story and the drama.” Traditionally performed at Christmas time in the U.S., most of the work is in fact centered on the biblical account of Christ’s Passion and Resurrection, with the Old Testament excerpts intended to show the traditional Christian interpretation of scripture as pointing toward the crucial events of Jesus’ life. “It can have both musical and sacred meanings,” Feddeck said, “depending on the listener. It’s a masterfully constructed musical composition. Whenever we are offered music with text, it can be both an advantage and a disadvantage. The text, while it helps us understand the piece, shouldn’t stop that process of what we would normally do when performing or listening: ‘What does this mean to me?’” His personal view? “What I want to convey with the work is that it’s a work of hope and of glory and of peace. They are all things that we need in our age. In terms of its message of peace, it is a work for our time, and offers something to everyone.” Handel’s “Messiah” • Performed by the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and soloists, conducted by James Feddeck. • 8 p.m. Dec.21 • Clowes Hall at Butler University in Indianapolis. • Tickets start at $36. • For more information visit www.indianapolissymphony.org.

A one-hour Christmas Carol

By Patricia Rettig • editorial@youarecurrent.com In time for the holidays and on select dates only, Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre presents its special one-hour production of theatre the classic Charles Dickens tale, “A Christmas Carol.” This timeless story is enhanced with music and live on stage through Dec. 20. The play centers on Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly businessman whose bitterness has increased with age. He cares little for the needs of his fellow man, preferring to keep money in his pocket rather than coal on the fire. His employee, Bob Cratchit, faithfully endures the ongoing chill from both his workplace and his boss. He keeps Scrooge in his prayers even though his own family is struggling to survive on the meager salary he earns. The health of Cratchit’s young son, Tiny Tim, is as poor as the family is financially, but Scrooge’s heart is unmoved and his coffers remain unopened. Scrooge is visited by three more spirits, and advises him to heed the messages they bring. The ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come then appear to Scrooge in succession – reminding him of what was, showing what is, and warning him what will be should he continue on his present path. Not only will his life be quickly forgotten, but those around him will face hardships that he could have easily prevented. Jeff Stockberger stars as Ebenezer Scrooge.

With the recent cold snap following another cold spell, it’s probably time to pack up for the season. After all, the high schools finished their football games weeks ago, and except for bowl games, the colleges have too. When packing up for the year a tailgater needs to consider several things. They first have to clean all their equipment. Then they have to solve the puzzle of where to store the stuff. Wouldn’t it make sense to make some notes as you pack up the tailgating gear? Here are some helpful thoughts: Make a map of where everything is stored. Evaluate every piece of gear to determine if it will last another season or it needs to be replaced. Make a list of gear you needed, but didn’t have this season. Take this list with you as sales appear during the off-season. Buy your equipment before the spring line comes out with its higher pricing. Most tailgaters watch football on TV this time of year, and they need a great snack for the game and the food commercials. This is our world famous Chili Con Queso: Ingredients: 2 pound box of Velveeta, 1

can diced tomatoes, 1 small can green chilies, chopped, 1 pound package hot Italian sausage Preparation: Cut the skin (casing) off of the sausage and brown it well in a frying pan. Chop it to little bits with a spatula. When it’s finished cooking, drain it onto paper towels and set it aside. Cube the Velveeta and place it in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cook it slowly in the microwave, one minute at a time, until it is just melted into a very thick liquid. Add in all the other ingredients and stir. Reheat and enjoy on corn chips or even buns.

Carmel theatre-goers will be in for a treat when Actor’s Theatre of Indiana presents an exclusive engagement of “The theatre Circus in Winter.” The musical is based on a novel by Indiana novelist Cathy Day and details the history of a traveling circus that wintered in Peru, Ind. The script was crafted by 14 students in theatre and dance professor Beth Turcotte’s immersive learning class at Ball State University. Based in the fictional 1930s town of “Lima” in the production, the story tells the tale of a community that came together to build the circus, the man who later purchases it and the tragedy he must overcome along the way, Turcotte said. “The music is the highlight of the experience,” she said. Set to original music and lyrics written by Indiana-native Ben Clark, fans of bluegrass, country and rock music are sure to come away impressed. But perhaps the most intriguing part of the Carmel performance will be the chance for the audience to give feedback to the actors, writers and producers following the show. “It’s going to be an exciting opportunity for people to possibly affect a show that could end up on Broadway,” said Actors Theater Artistic Director Don Farrell. Turcotte said it’s an opportunity to let the creators know what made sense, what didn’t and

just give honest feedback from an audience. “But there’s a lot of humanity in it as well,” Farrell said. That was the part Turcotte said her students enjoyed the most about writing the musical – the chance to do research with the circus people in Peru and meet the author, who is now a Ball State professor. “The Circus in Winter” • 8 p.m. Dec. 18 • The Studio Theatre • The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. • Tickets are $15. • For more information, call 843-3800 or visit www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

Covering children after college Commentary by Jamie Ianigro

Question from Rick G. from Carmel: My daughter is graduating this weekend and moving back home until she finds a Insurance job. What kind of insurance concerns should I have with this situation? Are you hiring?  Response from Jamie Ianigro: The down economy has hit everyone, but it’s really punished the folks graduating from college in the past couple of years. You do trigger some insurance issues anytime someone moves into your home. You could also be heading towards some health insurance issues depending on the age of your daughter. Let’s start with the property and liability issues though. Personal liability is the big issue that arises with grown kids. Everyone has a legal responsibility to handle the damage they cause to other people and their property. It can be anything from injuring someone accidently in a recreational sport to misjudging the wind and falling a tree into a neighbor’s house. The liability falls right back on your homeowners policy if you or your child does something like that. The problem that can arise is where your grown kid actually lives. Maybe all of their stuff is under your roof, but are they sleeping there every night?

I N D I A N A

You might consider getting a renter’s policy in her name. It has the benefit of property coverage, but the main benefit is that there will be no fight over liability coverage if a conflict arises. This is an important issue and verifying with your independent agent that you and your grown kids are protected is a quick and easy thing to do. Health insurance is the other major issue that affects grown children that not eligible for their own coverage. The Affordable Care Act extended the age limit that children can stay on a parent’s health plan to age 26. Many options at many price points are still available once someone passes the age restriction. Independent Insurance Agents are usually able to help you secure an individual health policy and help weigh your options. Going without coverage is an absolute last resort option. It is extremely risky and will make it very difficult to get quality coverage in the future. Lastly, we’re always looking for good people to join our team. We list current job openings on our website.

DISPATCHES Say goodbye to the incandescent light bulb - This year, manufacturers started phasing out 100-watt and 75-watt bulbs, and on Jan. 1, it will become illegal to import or manufacture traditional 60-watt and 40watt bulbs, too. Time to stock up? Not so fast. Early LED bulbs weren’t a good replacement, but a company called Cree finally cracked the nut on how to make LED bulbs that give off light almost indistinguishable from incandescent bulbs. Home Depot has been selling 60-watt and 40-watt Cree bulbs for about $10. That may seem like a lot for a light bulb, but when you consider that these bulbs use 80 percent less energy and will keep working literally for decades, the value proposition makes sense.

Varicose veins and pregnancy

Center earns state distinction

Commentary by Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D.

Along with the joys of pregnancy can come not so joyful varicose veins. There are several causes of varicose veins aesthetics during pregnancy. Heredity is a major contributing factor. Hormone levels rise during pregnancy causing the walls of the veins to relax and result in increased risk. During pregnancy, the blood volume doubles to supply both the mother and her fetus. This increased volume can make the veins bulge. As the uterus grows, it puts pressure on a large vein (inferior vena cava) on the right side of the body, which increases pressure in the leg veins. Being overweight, carrying multiples and standing for long periods of time make it more likely to develop varicose veins. Unfortunately, varicose veins tend to get worse with each successive pregnancy and age. As a reminder, varicose veins develop when the valves that keep blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart become damaged. This can cause blood to pool in your legs, with bulging veins and pain. Associated symptoms include leg aching, swelling, itching, heaviness, restlessness and fatigue. Here are some things you can do to improve your leg health while pregnant: • Keep your weight within the recommended range for your stage of pregnancy. • Exercise daily, including walking.

• Elevate your feet and legs whenever possible. • Don’t sit or stand for long periods without taking a break. • Don’t wear clothing that is binding around the tops of your legs, waist or ankles. • Wear medical grade compression stockings. Varicose and spider veins that develop during pregnancy may improve within three to six months after the baby arrives. In some cases, untreated veins do not improve and remain after delivery. That is when it is time to consult with a physician that specializes in venous medicine. Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D., FAAFP, RVT, RPVI, practices with the Indiana Vein Specialists, 11876 Olio Road, Suite 700, Fishers. He can be reached at 348-3023. For more information, visit www.indyveins.com

FlashPoint Business Competition The Entrepreneurship Advancement Center (EAC) is holding a competition for new businesses or existing businesses with a new product or service.

Cleaning the kitchen pantry is a great winter project, especially around the holidays. When you are preparing to cook big meals, indoors a well-stocked and organized pantry can make cooking and entertaining much easier. Let’s take a look at a few ways you can create the perfect pantry that will fit your family’s needs. There are many items available on the market that will help you make the most of every square inch of pantry space. Try installing carousels, pullout shelves, or corner hangings to maximize the space. Or take advantage of cabinetry pieces to increase storage capacity. There are also ways to incorporate pieces like roll-out drawers, lazy-susans and other built-in organizational tools (like spice racks) that can help you organize and keep cooking supplies within easy reach. Lighting inside the pantry is hugely important. If you can’t see inside the pantry, how will you be able to find anything inside? Forms of natural light are preferable, but generally artificial light is the only option for pantry. Create a lighting design that won’t cast many shadows. LED or fluorescent lighting may be preferable because these forms won’t emit heat like incandescent lights do. You could even choose to backlight the shelving or use small touch lights inside the pantry. These targeted sources of light will result in brighter, more direct lighting than an overhead fixture alone. The extra lighting will also make it easier to read labels or locate specific items. Consider installing a motion-sensor lighting system inside the pantry to make things a bit more convenient when you are searching through the shelves. After you’ve got the proper organization and lighting systems in place, it’s time to reorganize the items inside the pantry. The best way to organize a pantry is systematically. Throw away any expired products and donate any foods you no longer want. Next, group items together by function so you can find them with ease. Put all spices in one place; all marinades and sauces in one place; and all perishable items like potatoes or onions in one place. You get the idea. Arrange the foods with the labels facing toward the front,

that way you can spot expired items and throw them away before they sit in the pantry for another month. Invest in a stepladder so you can make use of top shelf space, and place rarely used items, such as special kitchen appliances or infrequently used pots, on the top shelves. Moving items from a pantry to a cabinet could be a great idea, and you can organize it in many different ways depending on the space you have available. You could keep all of your spices, or all of your cooking oils and baking ingredients, in a separate cabinet. My advice would be to continue organizing by function so that your grouped items don’t get split up between the closet and pantry. Thanks to a well-organized pantry, you create delicious holiday meals with a bit more ease. Spend less time rummaging through the pantry and more time with family and friends.  David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring.
