“Specialists in Senior Services” TURNING 65 - ALREADY 65

Three injured in late-night By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com One person was arrested after three people were injured during an attack on Dec. 10. Police were called to 530 Pleasant St. just after 11 p.m. in response to a report of a disturbance. Noblesville Police Dept. Spokesman Lt. Bruce Barnes said when officers arrived they found three men in two different locations all suffering from various injuries, including stab wounds and cuts. All three men were taken to Riverview Smith Hospital for treatment that night and released the following morning. Corey Smith, 24, of Noblesville was arrested on Dec. 11 on a preliminary charge of battery with a deadly weapon, a Class C felony. The arrest came after investigators were able to get a search warrant for a small apartment house in the 500 block of Pleasant Street. “Investigators interviewed the three individuals believed to be involved in the incident and a subsequent arrest was made,” Barnes said. Barnes said the injured men told him they had no idea why Smith allegedly attacked them. Smith is being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond. Since his arrest, the Hamilton County Prosecutors Office has added charges of criminal confinement, intimidation and attempted murder. Barnes said the other two men, a 38-yearold man from Westfield and a 42-year-old man from Noblesville, were identified by police as victims.

A hole in the parachute It is our position that the elimination of tax deductions by those who itemize charitable donations as a solution to avoiding the fiscal cliff would be devastating to philanthropic organizations and to the millions who benefit. Charitable giving plays an important role in our society and enriches the lives of Americans in countless ways. According to Giving USA, 30 percent of Americans who itemized their deductions provided $170 billion, 79 percent of the money that individuals donated to nonprofit organizations. It would appear this golden parachutelike solution to easing the national debt has some major holes. If people who itemize deductions reduce their giving by just 20 percent, it would mean a $34 billion drop in charitable giving - by far the largest decrease since the Great Depression. Ironically, 100 years ago, the federal government devised the charitable deduction to incentivize the wealthy to give at home while national funds were diverted to pay for World War I. Now, the government has taken on the responsibility of funding both; however, can and should it? Not to mention the collateral damage in the form of jobs lost in the nonprofit sector creating a rise in already high national unemployment. Contact your congressperson to preserve the itemized charitable deduction.

Salute Holt for work with county, others

Speaking of the signs

Commentary by Terry Anker

Many years ago, our youngest reached his third birthday without speaking a word. Experts weighed in and medical assessments were done. The prognoses ranged from the concerning to the breathtakingly frightening. After much failed effort to help him find his voice, a young, creative speech pathologist suggested that we attempt to teach him sign language. Almost immediately, our other son, who is four-and-a-half years older than his brother and who deeply desired to “speak” with him, went to the family computer. In the huntand-peck style that is a hallmark of a 7-yearold, he prodded the device into displaying a modicum of simple gestures that we could, in a sincere if amateurish way, attempt to share with the fledgling communicator. To our great delight, the toddler took to signing, well, like a duck takes to water. He immediately learned word and symbol after word and symbol. Also immediately he found that humor and goodwill lived in his tiny fingers and that his Dad generated delight with

mistaken gestures, often urging him to “play with his food and eat all of his toys.” Each day brought new understanding of the power of language to communicate, entertain and connect. With his brother at his side, they would roll with laughter over an intentionally misdirected sign. As parents, we were overjoyed that our little boy’s limitation proved mechanical and not cognitive; and we committed to live our lives exactly the same only slightly differently. With continued work and the passage of time, the youngster eventually started forming simple sounds to pair with his signs. Ultimately, his brain forged a path to his mouth and the spoken words came. No one knows why, and now I’m not sure I care. But I did learn to listen to my kids. What they say matters. It connects us. And, I cherish it.

New knees please

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

All I want for Christmas is two new knees. I’m not kidding. I recently participated in a holiday basketball game for charity (which, for those of you who still think of me as an antiPTO mom who never volunteers, does count as using my free time for good instead of evil!) and two days later, I can barely move without hearing the pops and crackling of bone-on-bone action from my aforementioned leg joints. I may be 40, but I’m way too young to go bionic (“We can rebuild her!”) The funniest part of my pain is that, heading into the big game, I harbored some crazy notion that I was still pretty good. Like I ever was! When I played in high school (many, many years ago) the only positive comment the coach could come up with was “she’s strong defensively.” I never controlled the ball particularly well, and preferred to pass rather than shoot, even when given a wide-open opportunity. On the rare occasion that I did find myself under the basket with nary an opponent in sight, I’d become so excited about my impending goal that I’d end up chucking the ball up over the backboard. I could play all positions though, and even started at center a few times. The point is, in my mind, I was confident I would impress a few coworkers. I was also fairly

certain that despite my advanced age, I could easily run up and down the court. Fast-forward to the second quarter. I subbed in, the only female in the game, and quickly swapped out my goal of “high-scorer” for “sole survivor.” In just five minutes, I quite literally considered vomiting, having a heart attack, and stroking out. I couldn’t catch my breath, my stomach felt like I’d been punched, and my leg muscles seized up as soon as I took the bench at the half. And yet, come fourth quarter, I headed back in to the fray! God help me, I don’t know how I managed to stay upright. With Doo and the kids looking on though, I hobbled off that court with dignity and headed straight for the nearest bottle of Advil. My stats totaled one rebound and one turnover. I’m still downing Motrin like candy. I’ve had to wear flats all this week because I can’t safely walk in heels and forget about taking the stairs. So, Santa, since I already received the gift of humility, could I please just have some new knees? Peace out.

Stance against Buffett is wrong

Editor, The owners of Current are wrong about Warren Buffett (From the Backshop, Current, Dec. 11.) He’s 82 years old. So, let’s say he started in business at age 22, right out of college. This means he began his business career in 1952. Back then, the top marginal individual tax rate was 90 percent. Lyndon Johnson dropped that rate to just 70 percent in 1964. Ronald Reagan lowered the top marginal tax rate to 50 percent in 1982 and eventually to 28 percent in 1988. It slowly increased to 39.6 percent at the end of the Clinton administration (coincidentally,

the last time the U.S. had a balanced budget). George W. Bush reduced it to 35 percent for the period 2003 through 2012 (ironically, while waging two wars). Now, President Barack Obama (and Warren Buffett) advocates raising this rate back to the 39.6 percent of the late Clinton years. So don’t tell me Buffett built his fortune when taxes on the rich were low, and now that he’s made his billions, he wants to raise them. He wants to raise them to help balance the budget, but he made his money when tax rates were much higher. Andy Ray, 46032

Community leaders come together to brighten holidays Editor, In the spirit of Thanksgiving, several dedicated members of the Hamilton County community gathered recently to raise money and help victims of crime and abuse. On behalf of Prevail, I would like to express our thanks for the recent fundraiser held at 3Ds’ Pub & Café in Carmel. U.S. Foods donated the provisions, Barometer Soup performed, Glazer’s, Pearl Vodka and Triton Brewing donated libations, numerous individuals and businesses donated goods and services, and bringing it all together was Erin Heller of 3Ds’ Pub & Café and Brian Kelly and Steve Greenberg, owners of Current Publishing. What fantastic assets Erin, Brian and Steve are to our communities. www.currentnoblesville.com

Most special to me was, on the eve of the day we gathered with families as thankful and grateful Americans, patrons of 3Ds’ joined invited guests and gave generously by buying items at the auction and graciously donated to help victims of verbal, physical and sexual abuse. Please visit www.Prevailinc.com or call Prevail to learn how Prevail helps break the cycle of abuse. Be prepared to be shocked at how often violence toward children and women happens right here in Hamilton County. Please consider this 25year, local not-for-profit in your year-end giving. May you and your family peacefully enjoy the holidays and remember those who won’t. Darren Peck, 46062

Wait, Christmas is just a week away?

Commentary by Robert Herrington

Christmas is one week away, are you ready? You know the basic fall back items – books, clothes (please know correct sizes), scarfs, jewelry and even fruitcake. You still have plenty of time to buy and ship presents so gift cards, downloadable gifts and online subscriptions aren’t the only options. Here are a few suggestions if you’re stuck: Handmade – Time may not be on your side, but nothing says you care about someone as much as a homemade gift and there are tons of options – food, ornaments, cocoa/dessert mixes in a jar or bag, even coupons. This gift is really as fun and imaginative as you let yourself

Sending Gifts

Did you find that perfect gift and want to make sure it makes it there in time for Christmas? The most important date to remember is Saturday. That is your absolute last day to ship in time for Christmas; although you’ll have to send it express mail to guarantee Christmas Eve delivery. If you don’t want to pay the extra shipping costs, just make sure it’s dropped off by Thursday to ship regular first class.

be. To spruce it up, use high-gloss paper and some of your photos. Take in a show – With the variety of theaters and music venues around us, why not buy tickets to an upcoming show (or a gift certificate if nothing strikes your fancy.) Most venues provide online ticket purchase, so pick out some seats and then wrap up a copy of the show’s CD with a print out of the tickets. If you can’t find the show’s CD, most are available from iTunes. Movie night – Instead of battling the crowds and packed malls, create a fun night in with a huge bucket of microwave-ready popcorn, soda bottles, large boxes of candy and a movie. If you aren’t sure of what DVD or Blu Ray they might like, give them a subscription to Netflix or another online movie subscription. A bottle of wine can also replace the soda for adult recipients. Coffee bar – Have a friend addicted to java? Help them out by giving them a coffee bar at home. Start by picking up some different flavors of coffee beans at any of the local stores. Then pick up some different flavors of sugars. Top it off by picking up some flavored syrups from a coffee shop or grocery store. Let your friends have their own coffee shop in their own kitchens. Week of restaurants – Forget the “12 Days of Christmas” and try a week of new restaurants. We all get stuck in a rut and become too comfortable with the same restaurants and

Joseph's 11 brothers travel through Egypt Photos courtesy of the Booth Tarkingotn Civic Theatre

‘Joseph’ set to light up Civic Theatre stage By Mark Johnson • mark@youarecurrent.com This holiday season, bright colors, music, songs, and entertainment will be on full display in malls, groceries, offices, and homes. Yet, the most dazzling and dynamic of all holiday spectacles may well take place at Carmel’s Center for the Performing Arts. It is there that the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre will introduce its production of “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” the Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice musical which is based on the Biblical story of Joseph, his family, and, of course, his striking “coat of many colors.” The musical extravaganza will run now through Jan. 5, 2013, with both evening and afternoon performances. The production has generated a great deal of buzz and excitement throughout the local arts community as this will be the first ever presentation of the musical at the Center for the Performing Arts. “Joseph” is a high-energy, electrifying feast for the eyes and ears, and a modern family classic. Last Wednesday’s spirited and enthusiastic dress rehearsal itself proved worthy of praise and anticipation. Shortly before the rehearsal, Civic Producing Director Michael Lasley and “Joseph” star Patrick Clements sat down for a conversation regarding the production and their involvement. “We’re definitely ready for an audience. We have been through eight-and-a-half weeks of rehearsal and it looks good, ready to go,” Lasley said laughing. “We have a cast of 26 performers, three different children’s choirs, plus a 10-piece orchestra. It’s a bit of a monster, but it’s gone very well. There’s been a lot of planning this time around. We have a wonderful choreographer, Nicole Beck, who has choreo18 | December 18, 2012

We’re absolutely thrilled to have at our disposal this state of the art facility. It also gives us an opportunity to freshen it up for our repeat audience.” For Clements, a 2012 graduate of Butler University, “keeping it fresh for the audience” is a crucial element of his work. “You can find something new in each performance,” he explained. “In this role, I have so many opportunities to react to things in the show, for on the spot reactions. Once the audience sees it, and you can hear them pick up on it that brings an energy. It creates an ebb and flow that keeps it fresh each night. That audience en-

ergy is what makes a live performance special.” When asked what they would like for the audience to take away from each performance, both Clements and Lasley offered their expectations. “I like for the audience to take away an experience that they would like to repeat, to see more of it,” Clements said. “When the audience walks out that door,” Lasley explained, gesturing toward the exit, “I want them to be happy! This is a show that has so much energy and that is so upbeat, I want to make sure that when they leave they feel entertained.” Brent Marty, director of music and education, is confident in the production. “This is Civic’s 12th production of the show, my seventh time, and it’s as good as it’s ever been. We have maestro Trevor Fanning conducting the orchestra, as well as some new cast members. The show is so appealing to adults and children. It has so many different styles of music, there really is something for everyone.” Marty also acknowledged the dedication of the cast. “It takes a lot of hard work to get to this point,” he said. “The music does not stop, so the cast gets a huge workout!”

Trouble with the Curve • PG-13, 111 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd Fair warning: I’m much higher on “Trouble with the Curve” than most film critics, and apparently hold a loftier opinion of it than audiences did. This drama starring Clint Eastwood as an aging baseball scout losing his eyesight only garnered modest interest at the box office, and only scored 52 percent on Rotten Tomatoes’ aggregation of critic opinions. But I found it one of the most emotionally satisfying journeys I experienced in 2012, even if the screenplay is a little shaky on the details. It’s perhaps Eastwood’s most sensitive performance, in which he shows real vulnerability and weakness. Gus Lobel may be ornery, but he loves the game like gospel and has the ability to

see things others can’t - at least he could before macular degeneration set in. His daughter Mickey (Amy Adams) agrees to follow him on a big scouting trip to act as his eyes, and they struggle to reconnect after years of estrangement. Meanwhile, a former pitching prospect named Johnny (Justin Timberlake) who blew his arm out and became a scout, tags along as a rival and a love interest. Despite some occasionally shaky storytelling, this film throws heat. Movie: B+ Read more of Chris Lloyd’s review of current films and DVDs at www. captaincritic.blogspot.com or www. thefilmyap.com.

Dinner Spanakopitas

Ingredients: 2 tbsp. olive oil; 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion; 2 green onions, white and green parts, chopped; 1 (10-ounces) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained; 2 eggs, lightly beaten; 2 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese; Plain dry bread crumbs; 1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg; 1 tsp. kosher salt; 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper; 1 cup small-crumbled feta cheese; 2 tbsp. toasted pine nuts, chopped; 12 sheets frozen phyllo dough, defrosted; 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted Directions: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a medium sauté pan, add the onion, and cook for 5 minutes over mediumlow heat. Add the green onions and cook for another 2 minutes until they are wilted but still green. Meanwhile, add the thawed and drained spinach to a large mixing bowl. When the onions are done, add them to the bowl. Mix in the eggs, Parmesan cheese, 1 1/2 tablespoons bread

crumbs, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Gently fold in the feta and the pine nuts. Place one sheet of phyllo dough flat on a work surface. Brush the dough lightly with butter. Working quickly, place another sheet of phyllo on top of the first, and brush it lightly with butter. Continue this process until you have a stack of 4 sheets of phyllo. Cut the stack of phyllo in half lengthwise (I found a pizza cutter useful for this step). Place 1/3 cup of the spinach filling on the shorter end and roll the phyllo up diagonally as if folding a flag. Then fold the triangle of phyllo over straight and then diagonally again. Continue folding the first diagonally and then straight until you reach the end of the sheet. The filling should be totally enclosed. Continue assembling phyllo layers and folding the filling until all of the filling is used. Place on a sheet pan, seam sides down. Brush the tops with melted butter, sprinkle with flaked salt (I used kosher) and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the phyllo is browned and crisp. Serve hot. - annie-eats.com

Wellness Stay active, lose weight with BodyFit HEALTH

Commentary by April Conard Have you ever thought that if you had the money to spend on a personal trainer, you would be in the best shape of your life? Someone else to hold you accountable and push you more than you would push yourself? Well, I don’t have someone, but I have something. It is called the BodyFit Media System, and it is a program designed to keep accurate daily records of calories consumed versus burned making it easier to stay informed, make decisions and more effectively manage your weight. The reason it is so accurate is that you wear it all the time. These types of systems give you highly accurate information on calories burned, and you would be amazed at how much you can burn simply doing laundry. You might also be amazed at how little you burned during your work out (you probably need to amp it up). It also measures your steps, which can get you off the couch because nothing motivates like meeting a goal. Calories out is only a piece of the puzzle - calories in is just as important. With this system, you log in your food consumption, and it tallies up your nutrient levels. It will even give you

messages to keep you in line. If your fat intake is above the daily amount, it will let you know and give you food suggestions. Many foods are already in the system, but you can also create and save recipes, saving you even more time, perhaps for more exercise! The third component is the most neglected of the health trifecta, and that is sleep. This tracking device will not only measure the intensity of your workouts and count your calories, it will monitor your quality of sleep, which is an important factor in weight loss. The system will also give suggestions on ways to reach your caloric burn for that day if you’re off track, and the activity manager also keeps track of your personal bests and will give you motivating words of encouragement. ’Tis the season for gift giving and receiving and this would be a great one! So if for you or someone you love, this is a very effective way to have a healthy start to a new year.

Adding teens to insurance policies Duke Energy donates $20,000 to Good Samaritan Network Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Michael M. from West Clay: My son will be getting his license in less than a month. How do I add him to my policy, and what can I do to make sure I don’t have to get a second job to afford it? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Adding a teen to your insurance policy is not the thing to do if you’re looking to keep your insurance costs down. A couple of things can be done to make sure you are getting the best price. First, make sure your teen keeps his grades up. A good majority of carriers offer discounts for teens that maintain a “B” average or higher. Next, make sure your teen completes a Driver’s Ed class. Finally, make sure you pay attention to our claim prevention ideas and follow all of the current laws and regulations. Adding a new driver to your policy is as easy as giving your independent the new driver’s license number, name and the vehicle that they will be driving. If you’re adding a new vehicle, we will also need the VIN (vehicle identification number) for the new auto. The type of vehicle your teen drives is a major driver of the cost of coverage. It’s a pretty simple concept. The car you want them to drive (a four-door sedan) is going to cost a lot less to insure when compared to the car they want to drive (a sports car.) The leading cause of death for U.S. teens is motor vehicle crashes. Teens are at risk because they are more likely to drive aggressively, to not wear seatbelts and to underestimate the dangers associated with hazardous driving situations.  When we talk about claim prevention, we’re talking about minimizing the risk of those three things. The most straight forward approach to prevention is to just put it all down on paper and create a Teen-Parent Driving Contract. The contract will spell out your expectations on anything you feel like addressing along with the punishment for breaking the contract. The contract should address: • Make sure every person in the vehicle is wearing a seatbelt. • Never use a cell phone while driving. • Limit the number of passengers in the vehicle. • Make sure you are familiar with our current Graduated Drivers License laws (current laws and regulations can be viewed at www.iihs.org).

Duke Energy donated $20,000 to Hamilton County’s Good Samaritan Network to help county residents in need. “Good Samaritan provides lifechanging help in our community,” Duke Energy District Manager Mark LaBarr said. “It’s a strong, supportive network that assisted nearly 19,000 Hamilton County families last year.”

Good Samaritan is a far-reaching network of 32 Hamilton County food pantries and 64 social service agencies that work with township trustees to coordinate and deliver help to families and individuals. The network offers aid such as food donations, help with buying medication, emergency car repairs, and assistance with rent, mortgage and utility payments. Good Sa-

maritan also offers classes in life skills, such as parenting and nutrition. “During a troubled economy, private and corporate donors make it possible for us to help people during difficult periods of their lives,” Nancy Chance, executive director of Good Samaritan, said. “We thank Duke Energy for answering our call when funds were needed.”

Stock tip – Officesupply retailer Staples is struggling to grow sales right now. Tough competition against Office Depot and OfficeMax, as well as online sites such as Amazon is crimping financial results, and a past acquisition in Europe also isn’t helping. However, Staples. com is one of the most popular retail websites, and the company could see better prospects when the economy turns around. The P/E ratio of below 9 reflects this is a turnaround play, and the dividend yield of 3.8% can be collected until sales recover. – Ryan C. Fuhrmann, CFA, via finance.yahoo. com.

Grammar Guy

Season’s greetings, and other holiday tips Commentary by Jordan Fischer It’s nearing the end of the year again, and that means a unique set of grammar challenges: Christmas cards. Sure, they could be Hanukkah cards, or Kwanzaa cards, or Eid Mubarak cards, or New Year’s cards, or just simply holiday cards. Heck, they could even be “happy December” cards, for all I care. Good grammar still is good grammar, and I think we can all agree it’s already political enough as it is. I mean, I’m still getting passionate letters about my British versus American punctuation rules column. (I wish.) If you’re anything like my mother, your holiday cards went out weeks ago, were probably handmade and included a wonderful, personalized message for each recipient. If you’re anything like me, you’ve just realized Christmas is a week away. Guess it’s time to resort to holiday e-mails … So, here’s the question: Do you wish your friends “season’s greetings,” or “seasons greetings?” After all, the greetings don’t really belong to the season, right? Our dear friend Microsoft Word will point you toward “season’s greetings,” and it will be correct. I’m confident you’re dying to know why, though. Here we see the genitive case, which is used when a noun modifies another noun. As we said before, the greetings don’t

belong to the season; they belong to you as you give them out. However, the greetings are undeniably “of ” the season, so to speak. There are no season’s greetings without the season in question. The genitive case allows us to show this quasi-possessive relationship, and my mom gets a nice opening line for her Christmas cards. Staying in the holiday spirit, once you’ve gotten past your opening “merry Christmas” or “happy New Year,” should you capitalize those phrases in the middle of a sentence? For example, would you write, “We all wish you a Merry Christmas!” It’s tempting, I know. So often we see those phrases used as standalone sentences with both words capitalized. But “merry,” “happy,” “joyous,” whatever adjective you want to place before the holiday, they’re all just that: simple adjectives. Thus, we write, “Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.” And, in case you don’t read my ink again before 2013, please do have a pleasant trip into the New Year and a wonderful time celebrating whichever holidays you choose. Personally, I try to hit them all – as long as the food is good. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com.

Crafts Cranberry and Walnut Winter Bark LIFESTYLE

Commentary by Ashley Phipps

I have been on a huge cranberry kick recently! I have been making different kinds of cranberry sauces and relishes and stocking up on cranberries to freeze for later in the year when they are no longer in stores. We also have been eating a lot of salads with Craisens in them. They also are really tasty and even my kids love them. So, while I was doling out endless Costco-size bags worth of Craisens to my children the other day, it hit me. A yummy tasty chocolate bark with a few of my favorite ingredients in it - Cranberry and Walnut Winter Bark. Yum! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do: Ingredients: • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips • 12 ounces white chocolate chips • 1/2+ cups Craisens (can use more or less to preference) • 1/2+ cups chopped walnuts (can use more or less to preference) Directions: 1. Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips, be careful not to scorch.  (check out my blog for tips and tricks for melting chocolate) 2. Carefully pour and smooth out onto a piece of wax paper until even thickness of chocolate is acquired. 3. Cool in fridge until set.

4. Melt white chocolate chips. 5. Carefully pour and smooth out on top of cooled semi-sweet chocolate.  You will need to move quickly and try not to mess with it too much.  6. Sprinkle Craisens and chopped walnuts on top of white chocolate.  Press gently into white chocolate. 7. Cool in fridge until set. 8. Break apart or cut apart using a large sharp knife. Cranberry and Walnut Winter Bark has the right amount of sweet, crunchy and tangy! And it just tastes like winter! Yum!

The lively Fremont Street in Las Vegas at night. (Photo submitted)

What happens on Fremont Street Commentary by Tracy Line

Long before Las Vegas was the Strip, before it became Sin City, before the infamous ad campaign about keeping secrets, Las Vegas was simply a place to eat, drink and gamble. And in 1905 you did that at the corner of Fremont and Main. Now a hundred years later, Fremont Street plays second fiddle to the Strip and I’m not so sure it should. This quaint section of the city, in the heart of the downtown, has an appeal all its own. First of all, it is small. Small enough that you can walk around without getting lost or get blisters on your feet. And while the hotels and casinos on the strip tend to showcase opulence, Fremont Street hotels are a bit more ... old school. Think vintage Vegas: inexpensive allyou-can eat buffets with steak and shrimp, and less crowded casinos with cheaper tables and classic ambiance. But with this vintage comes modernity. Fremont Street offers nightly light shows on the

Viva Vision Screen, the world’s largest screen with 12 million lights and 550 watts of superior sound. The screen towers 90 feet above a pedestrian walkway housing the many shops, casinos, restaurants, bars and two performance stages. There are many free concerts and events giving the area a celebratory atmosphere. Once a month, the city offers a free strEATS festival bringing in food trucks, artists, DJs and all round fun. Many of the hotels are original and most have recently been renovated. In addition, there is a new zip-line (Flightlinez at Fremont Street) and a group of eclectic nightclubs and lounges in the Freemont East District. All in all, Las Vegas is a fun town with lots to see and do. But if you’ve been there, done that on the Strip, try staying on Fremont Street. You may find you like it even better.

Thinking big

Call for details!

Commentary by David Decker

Design trends are increasingly leaning toward “thinking big.” From overstuffed furnishings, to wide floorings and expansive wall art, oversized pieces have experienced a boom in popularity. So what’s the secret behind this craze? To put it simply, large pieces create an immediate impact in a room. They instantly draw attention and create a focal point. Contrary to what you might think, largescale pieces give the illusion of spaciousness and increased size. It’s true; large pieces can make rooms look bigger. Best of all, this design strategy can work in any type of space. Here are a few suggestions for items that can be supersized for maximum design impact. First, consider buying a piece of oversized furniture. A large ottoman or chair can create intimacy in a large room that has high ceilings or windows. These pieces can also look great in a room with limited space. Instead of buying multiple pieces of small furniture, consider arranging the room around one or two large pieces. It will make the limited space look more open and less cluttered. One large lighting fixture can light up an entire room and make an exciting design statement. Instead of small pendant lights, place an oversized chandelier in the dining area or the kitchen to create a sophisticated, yet contemporary look. In the past, most wallpaper was created with small, intricate prints. But today, large-print

wallpaper is an excellent, new alternative. Designers have created wallpapers that feature oversized art or photography. You could also choose to decorate the walls using oversized hanging art or mirrors. Large mirrors are very popular because they can reflect the light in the room, making it look larger and brighter. In terms of flooring, many homeowners are choosing hardwood flooring and tile designed with wider or larger pieces. Larger flooring pieces look more modern and sleek, while giving the illusion that the room is bigger. You could also choose an oversized area rug. If your style tastes change, simply swapping out a rug can change the entire look of a room. Oversized pieces will create a dramatic and spacious look. Be pragmatic and install only a limited number of pieces for maximum impact. Otherwise, it might look like your home belongs on the set of Alice in Wonderland!
