Students eagerly anticipate prom By Anna Skinner • news@currentinwestfield.com As the end of the year fast approaches, there is an abundance of activities that Westfield High School students have to look Education forward to. For one, graduation is less than two months away. But another exciting event looms even nearer than that. The Indiana State Museum will be hosting Westfield’s prom on Saturday. Seniors, juniors and even a few lucky underclassmen can’t wait for the dance. The junior class plans the annual event, location and theme. “We posted options on Twitter and Instagram and asked classes their opinions of themes for prom. Masquerade Ball was chosen for this year because it was wanted by many and easy to decorate within our budget,” junior class officer Amy Bennett said. “The location is the same as last year and will be the same for a few more years because of a deal our school made with the Indiana State Museum.” To budget for the prom, the junior officers receive some money left from the previous year and the teachers who sponsor the junior class tell them how much money they can spend. The junior officers aren’t the only ones budgeting for prom though. Various other students must find ways to pay for dresses and tuxes to go with the masquerade theme, and they are planning ways to budget their night to include

dinner and after prom. “I’m just hoping I can find a dress with only a week before prom,” senior Cari Smith said. “Honestly, I doubt I’ll be participating in the masquerade theme, but it will be fun to see what other people wear!” The dance runs from 8 to 11 p.m. and an afterprom party will take place at the high school for a few hours longer. “With graduation and prom coming up, I’m just excited for all of it. It definitely makes it a different experience since all the friends I’m going with will be heading off on their separate ways in a few more months, so it’s exciting to make a special memory with them before going off to college,” Smith said. Smith’s date, fellow senior Chris Carlton, created a unique way of asking her to prom. “I customized a giant fortune cookie to have a fortune inside that read ‘Will you go to prom with me?’ and put it on her desk,” he said. “As for budgeting for prom, I think we’re all going to eat at someone’s house so that will definitely help save money.” Many seniors are excited for prom since it’s a fun night that marks the end of the year, but younger students are eager as well. “I’m really excited because it’s my first year going, and I think it will be a lot of fun to go with my friends since we all have dates,” junior Jessica Beal said.

Shamrock Survey How much do you expect to spend on prom and what are some ways you are saving for it? “I don’t really expect to pay anything because my date is buying tickets and dinner. Although I am buying a dress, and I’m going to pick up some extra shifts at work and not spend a lot of money until I buy my dress,” Alexa Reeh, senior “We’re eating at my girlfriend’s house, and she’s using her sister’s dress, so I just have to rent a tux and buy tickets,” Levi Hiatt, senior

“I bought my dress online earlier during the year because it was cheaper, and my aunt is hemming it so that’s how I saved money, and my boyfriend is buying everything else,”

“I’ll just be buying tickets, but I’m going to ask my parents if they can lend me some money,” Joey Abernathy, senior

Alli Evoy, senior

“Probably a couple hundred for my dress, hair, and nails. I’m planning on being really nice to my dad so he helps me pay for it,” Cari Smith, senior

WWS tops $800K in energy savings news@currentinwestfield.com

Westfield Washington Schools is only a year and a half into its energy reduction efforts and has already tallied a savings of schools more than $800,000. In recognition of this success, the United States Environmental Protection Agency has identified WWS as an EnergyStar Leader, by reducing energy use more than 20 percent across the corporation. Since the summer of 2011, the program’s focus has been on ensuring more public funds are going into the classroom, as opposed to paying for utility costs. “Conservation of energy and financial savings are the result of each member of the Westfield Washington Schools family ensuring that energy not necessary to our academic mission is

reduced or not used at all,” said Matt Kettlebar, energy education specialist. “These practices ensure there is no impact on the learning environment for our students. Our energy reduction efforts focus primarily upon unoccupied times such as evenings, vacations, and breaks from school.” Throughout 2013, members of the WWS faculty and staff will be working to make energy reduction even more effective. Future efforts will focus on further consolidation of building use during summer vacation to reduce energy consumption. The energy efficiency of school buildings has increased at such a rate that several buildings on the WWS campus will be pursuing EnergyStar Certification during 2013. This certification identifies buildings as being among the most energy efficient in the United States, a very prestigious recognition.

MacGregor Park is one of the city’s unique escapes MacGregor Park was dedicated in 2008 and the passive nature park recently expanded 40 acres to provide more trails and forests.

1999

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Nestled at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Ind. 38 is one of Westfield’s unique treasures – MacGregor Park. Like the city, MacGregor Park cover story is rich with history. It began as a prehistoric hunting village and later became home to Crescent Hill Farms. The park was a conductor stop on the Underground Railroad and contains glacial rocks, which are 12,000 years old. Inside the newly purchased 40 acres is a historic Quaker-style house that was built in the mid-1800s. MacGregor Park started in 1999 when Sheila MacGregor donated her family’s land, which formed a doughnut around the internal 40 acres of woods the township purchased on Dec. 12, 2012. Washington Township Trustee David Gill formed the parks department shortly after the original donation, created a parks board and hired Melody Jones as parks director. “It was all woods except for the power lines,” Becky McCanna, who is project coordinator of MacGregor Park with Markine Sipes, said. In the past 18 months, McCanna said Washington Township Parks has received $560,000 in various grants – most of them matching – meaning $1.1 million has been spent to upgrade MacGregor Park. “The grants have been instrumental,” Sipes said. “Most of this would not have occurred without them.” The Dept. of Natural Resources awarded a grant to buy 230 trees for the park, which will be planted this year. Last May, the parks department received an Indiana Bicentennial Nature Trust grant, which was used to buy the internal 40 acres. McCanna said a land-and-water grant is awaiting federal approval after being accepted by the state. Once approved, the grant will be used to reforest 17 acres of cropland in the new section. “We’ll add 500 trees and an additional mile to mile and a half of trails,” she said. “The internal land is dependent solely on grants we receive.” The look of MacGregor Park will continue to change this summer. McCanna said plans call for an official sign at the main entrance off Ind. 38. Also around the main entrance, nine acres are under construction as plans call for a one-mile trail, outdoor learning center, two picnic

shelters, 22-car parking lot and the addition of 250 trees. The project is expected to be open by the fall. “We started the project in November and hoped to be finished by now,” McCanna said. “Nature has not been cooperative.” Future plans also include incorporating programming at the park. Currently, most programming is held at the Washington Township Trustee Office at 1549 E. Greyhound Pass, Carmel. Sipes said programming includes adult fitness and enrichment, summer camps and programs. “We’re totally full with programming from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. five days a week,” she said. MacGregor Park is almost 100 acres, making it a little larger than Cool Creek Park which is also located in

The park was once owned by Shelia Beals MacGregor, a small Scottish woman with a huge heart that came from England after World War II and finally settled in Hamilton County. MacGregor loved the solitude and beauty of this MacGregor 40-acre forest. She walked the perimeter of the land daily, enjoying every season while learning about the habits of the many species of wildlife and birds that inhabit or migrate through this pristine woodland. MacGregor’s only desire was that this area would forever be preserved so others could learn to love nature as she did.

Westfield. “It’s a lot for a small parks staff,” Sipes said. “It’s a passive nature reserve. The only other park of its kind is Ritchie Woods in Fishers.” Currently there are 2.2 miles of trails. By the end of next year, McCanna said almost five miles of trails will be available to the public. The trails inside MacGregor are flat and have rolling hills. Portions of it are in the sun while others are in the shade. “That’s what people say they love about the park,” McCanna said. “It’s very, very diverse. It’s unique in that it changes every five minutes.” The park is home to deer, owls, foxes, coyotes and migratory birds including a couple of endangered species. “I enjoy it for the natural setting and the quietness of it. It has always been filled with wildflowers and wildlife. I find it to be a really nice nature experience,” Sipes said. “It’s really just a treasure,” McCanna said. McCanna and Sipes estimate that MacGregor Park has 35,000 visitors annually. “It’s growing. More and more people are coming out,” McCanna said. “We want people to come out and use it.”

Seventeen acres was purchased on both sides of the bridge entering MacGregor Park.

FROM THE BACKSHOP An improved Current designed just for you

Growing tolerance It is our position that the Anne Frank Center USA Sapling Project serves as an important reminder of the need for tolerance. One of 11 saplings from the 170-year-old white horse chestnut tree that was Anne Frank’s only connection to nature during the two years her family hid from the Nazis during the German occupation of the Netherlands, was recently planted in the Anne Frank Peace Garden at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The sapling is a living monument to Anne’s pursuit of peace and tolerance, and at the same time will serve as a powerful reminder of the horrors caused by hate and bigotry and the need for collective action when humanity fails. As Anne wrote in her diary, “April is glorious, not too hot and not too cold, with occasional light showers. Our chestnut tree is in leaf, and here and there you can already see a few small blossoms.” May tolerance grow in tandem with Anne’s beautiful chestnut tree. Visit the Anne Frank Peace Garden and enjoy the blossoms in honor of Anne and those like her. And like those who made the Sapling Project possible, there is more good in the world than evil. For more information on the Sapling Project, go to www.childrensmuseum. org.

Is collusion the real threat? Commentary by Terry Anker There are scores of expressions to describe the disposition of government officials to take our money and use it like a venture fund manager. The current nomenclature calls it government entrepreneurship. One wonders if it is an assistant, barrier or competitor with a healthy free-market. Entrepreneurs do great things and change the world, but they also take breathtaking financial risks and routinely fail. The natural government monopoly boasts a gaggle of advantages outpacing even the most competitive private company. In a world where rapacious private businesses are attracted to easy money and public guarantees, shouldn’t government “assistance” be limited to the broadest possible private entrepreneur participation? When speculating on who can claim credit for entrepreneurial success, some would openly assert that the individual entrepreneur “didn’t do that.” Even if one assumes veracity in this supposition, would it likewise be accurate to claim

that government “didn’t do that either?” Indiana is in the black. In fact, the current governor is locked in some James T. Kirk like battle with an alien Republican legislature about the return of some of those tax dollars to those who were overcharged for the services. A balanced budget amendment prevents official largess being unchecked. Yet, we still set aside dollars to spawn home-grown high-tech companies. We build and maintain infrastructure. And, we directly support countless stadiums and billionaire sport team owners. The pressure to undertake ever more expensive and elaborate schemes from entrepreneurial government officials is intense but no more so than the rent-seeking tendencies of entrepreneurs inside the private sector. Is collusion between these two forces the real threat? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

You’re noticing something different about Current today, aren’t you? You found the paper on which the news and ads are printed to be a little brighter, right? You also noticed that the pages are “stitched” by two staples on the fold, meaning no more loose sheets, correct? You also detected that the paper is ever-soslightly shorter and narrower, we’re guessing. It all is owed to a decision we made to move our printing efforts to a new location. Cox Media Group of Franklin, Ohio, effective with this edition, handles the printing, inserting and packaging tasks for all Current products and the Carmel Business Leader, as well as titles produced by our “sister” company, Times-Leader Publications (The Southside Times, Hendricks County ICON, Center Grove ICON, and the Southside Business Leader and the Hendricks County Business Leader). We’re excited about the change, because we believe it will provide a better reading experience. We’re still printing on paper that contains post-consumer content, and we’re still using low-rub, soy-based ink, which we believe to be important. Our art director, Zach Ross, has made subtle changes to the appearance of the news report, including new typefaces, story identifiers and different ways to package the news. By virtue of his moving ads to the “outside” edges of the paper, he has created something of a news well, which will accommodate a changing news presentation. We hope you enjoy the improvements, and we invite your comments at info@youarecurrent. com. ••• We bade a sad farewell last week to our friend and landscape-business owner, Cliff Bivins, who died all too soon at age 44 on April 14 of respiratory complications.

Not sure I still want ‘it’

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Despite being a happily married, over-40, ginger from Kentucky, I can apparently still attract the men. Of course, that’s not humor necessarily a good thing. One of my sisters and I decided to road trip to Atlanta for the NCAA basketball semi final game. You may recall my fateful trip to New Orleans last April which culminated in my screaming at Doo through tears, “I am not driving you home!” So this year we left husbands at home for some quality sister time. Louisville won the game, there was very little drama, and apart from never being able to locate the stupid ESPN Gameday set-up − where were you, Jay Bilas? − we had a marvelous time. What I didn’t anticipate, though, was how not having a man constantly at my side somehow equated to, “I’m single and looking for love.” And before you ask, yes, my wedding ring was on and no, I wasn’t dressed in brothel attire. Bachelor number one? A 50-something farmer from Wisconsin at the game. Sure he weighed a little more than 350 pounds and my seat kept catching his thigh fat every time I stood, but Jerry and I hit it off. Maybe too well, in fact. Even after I told him about my four children and brilliant husband, he continued to pay me compliments and insinuate that we should meet up. Luckily the thrill of the victory carried

me out of the arena before I had to address the issue. Sorry, Jerry! Next up, a college student from Michigan. As Sis and I exited the 100-level area of the dome, a very good-looking guy approached, flashed me a gorgeous smile, and said something about tickets. Huh? What? Yes! And when I handed it over, he went straight for the hug. I don’t even embrace friends, let alone strangers, and I know he just wanted my seat, but he had a dimple! No, wait. I have a son not much younger than him. Eeewwww. Mrs. Robinson? I don’t think so. Finally, a total dingbat who was only in town for the free concerts. When I went to the hotel bar later that night, El Ding launched into an abusive diatribe on how badly Michigan was going to beat Louisville in the championship. He obviously considered his little speech some kind of courtship ritual because as soon as my fries arrived and I turned to leave, he offered to buy me a drink. And not as an apology. No thanks, ya loser. I’d rather be with Jerry. So it seems I’ve still “got it.” Just not sure if I want it. Peace out.

Moose tracks in my lasagna Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Warning: There’s another case of food impropriety in the news. A popular frozen dinner option is being removed from ovens humor over in Scandinavia in another half-baked scandal. Families were waiting to feast on Moose Lasagna, but as the cheese was becoming bubbly and browned, food officials exposed that there was pork in some of these prepared selections. Everyone in Sweden is asking: What is pork doing in my lasagna? People in the U.S. are asking: What is moose doing in your lasagna? Jews in Sweden, all fourteen of them, were upset because the company revealed that the 17,000 portions sold contained 1-percent pork, which the company admitted meant the product was not 100-percent Kosher. Or as my rabbi would say, “Not Kosher.” The bottom line is that even though the manufacturer is pulling the pork-tainted casserole off the shelves, the entrée is still a favorite of many consumers. After all, who doesn’t like pulled pork? For the second time in two months, it’s the conglomerate IKEA that is responsible for this food fiasco. Wanting to be proactive in this debacle, the company set up an 800 number so customers could, in their words, “lodge a moose lasagna complaint.” Everyone thought this seemed like a good idea except the local Moose Lodge, where they got a lot of crank phone calls.

IKEA is basically a furniture company that also sells frozen food, a technique to expand sales like the U.S. Postal Service decision to sell safari hats and dorky shorts so you can look like your letter carrier. IKEA has had a history of mislabeling products, once advertising futons as beds, a ruse that almost worked until people got them home and tried to sleep on them. The details of the porcine-laced lasagna were first revealed by the Swedish newspaper Dagbkadet. Coincidentally, dagbkadet is exactly what a Kentucky farmer says if he finds not moose, but a mouse, in his lasagna. One French newspaper scared the beejeebers out of their readers when they inadvertently mistranslated the story and Parisian diners thought there was meat in their mousse. Even hairstylists got the facts wrong and thought there was pork in their styling products. IKEA is not sure how to win back its customers after so many have suffered this unjust ingestion. PR experts found a snappy slogan they will use to promote the product to ensure people know the issue has been addressed. “You’ve got game!”

We actually ‘prommed’ at prom Commentary by Mike Redmond

It is getting to be Prom Season, so naturally my mind turns to memories of my own prom, back during the Flintstonian Era, humor when the Lakeland High School gym was transformed into a magical wonderland and the evening lived up to its theme, “Disaster Under The Stars.” No, not really. I think the theme was “Moonlight and Magnolias” or something to do with the Antebellum Southern United States, which of course made absolutely no sense for kids living in Anabaptist Northern Indiana. I guess the prom committee had all seen “Gone With The Wind” before they voted. Good thing it wasn’t “Guadalcanal Diary.” Lakeland had been open something like eight years by the time my class’s prom came along, which means it was already mired in tradition, such as having the VersaTones, a three-piece band from Elkhart (drums, sax, accordion), back to provide the music, and some cheesy stage hypnotist to making certain of us crow like roosters or revert to our kindergarten selves. As you might have guessed, the faculty chose the entertainment because we students could not be trusted to come up with something tasteful. Of course they were right, but that’s beside the point. Another tradition was that we actually prommed. That is, at a certain point in the evening, a signal went out and we all lined up behind Mrs. Booth, the stern business teacher who chose the

band, and clomped a few laps around the gym floor while our parents looked on from the mezzanine. Most of our parents, I should say. My mother made it abundantly clear that she was not about to drive 12 miles into town to watch a bunch of kids walking in circles wearing rented clothes. Oh, yes, the clothes. This was the era of skyblue and Pepto-pink tuxedoes with lapels like car doors, Ricky Ricardo ruffled shirts, and bow ties the size of cecropia moths. Except for me. As befits a shy, conservative type such as myself, I chose a plain black formal suit. Compared to my pastel-hued classmates, I looked Amish. Wait. It was double-breasted. Make that Mennonite. The prom itself went along as they all did back then. Couples pulled up in gleaming washed and waxed family cars, walked through the same doors they walked through every school day, and made their way to the aforementioned gymnasium-slash-wonderland, a beauteous riot of crepe paper and balloons with only the faintest whiff of sweatsocks. There we waited in line while some sophomore announced each couple to a room full of people who couldn’t care less, all of us just having seen one another out in the hallway. Oh, the magic of it all.

Menopause: A celebration of ‘the change’

By Patricia Rettig • news@currentinwestfield.com

The 40th Anniversary Season heats up in a flash as “Menopause, The Musical” makes its debut at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Rd., Indianapolis. This hilarious and fun celebration of women and “the change” is live on stage now through May 12. Written by Jeanie Linders, “Menopause, The Musical” is set in a department store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. The all-female cast makes fun of their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between these diverse women in this uplifting production that includes parodies from the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s. It culminates with a salute to women who are experiencing “the change.” Beef & Boards’ production features Indianapolis residents Judy Bridgewater and Tiffanie Bridges. Bridgewater is a native Hoosier who owned the Young Artists Studio of Performing Arts for more than 30 years and currently teaches private voice lessons at Lawrence Central High School. Bridges has lived in Indianapolis for 14 years and has performed in productions of “Menopause, The Musical” for eight years in nearly 40 cities. Joining these ladies are Dee Etta Rowe (last seen at Beef & Boards in the 2008 production of “The Sound of Music”) and Rebecca Fisher, who is making her Beef & Boards debut.

Artists announced for open house By Dan Domsic • dan@youarecurrent.com

About 70 artists, six of them from Hamilton County, will open their Exhibition studios to visitors during the two-day, 20th annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House Friday and Saturday. Fishers residents Bruce Moore and Sally Moore will participate in the event, which is designed to give patrons the chance to see artwork in the setting where it’s created. The married duo shares a 900-square-foot studio (B-345) at the Stutz. They met when Sally was directing her own gallery on Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis, and Bruce inquired about whether she wanted to see his work. Bruce uses water colors or water media and creates his works on a 100-percent polypropylene material called Yupo. Sally is a trained jeweler who uses sterling and 14 ct. gold precious metals, as well as exotic stones, for her designs. She said some of the hand-picked gems never before shown will go on display at the show,

Thursday – Woomblies Friday – Zanna Doo Saturday – Good Seed Three Ds’ Pub and Café – 13644 N. Meridian St., Carmel – www.threedspubandcafe.com

and Bruce will have two abstract series on display at the open house. Another of Bruce’s works went on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art on Sunday. “The open house has become one of the city’s rites of spring,” said Tom Potter, a photographer and co-chair of the 2013 open house. “This year, there’s an even more diverse mix of studios and art to see than ever.” Other Hamilton County artists displaying at the open house are Wendy Franklin and Laura LaForge, both of Carmel, Katie Clayton of Noblesville and Mallory Marty, also of Fishers. Artwork ranges from paintings, drawings and photography, to sculpture, jewelry and furniture. The event also offers a rare chance to see vintage cars on display in the historic Stutz car factory. The event is from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. Friday and 2 to 7 p.m. Saturday at 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis. Advance tickets can be purchased for $10 at Old National Bank branches and the Stutz Business Office, or for $14 at Eventbrite or $15 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.

Treating skin pigment problems Commentary by Brooke Tetrault Treating pigment-related skin conditions like sun spots can actually be one of the most dramatic improvements DERMATOLOGY in the overall tone and youthfulness of skin. Skin cells called melanocytes produce pigment called melanin, which is the source of skin’s color and a key component of defense against UV exposure. This pigment production can also be the result of exposure to heat and hormonal shifts. When melanocytes no longer respond to the normal rules of growth and melanin production, perhaps from repeated UV damage, they can result in malignancy. It is important to consult with a physician to rule out any suspicion for abnormal lesions, such as melanoma, before undergoing any cosmetic treatment. A yearly dermatologic skin check and proper sunscreen is always recommended. Always be careful if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. For benign, unwanted pigment concerns, one can be fairly aggressive with laser treatments. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), a flashlamp device, is probably the most popular procedure used for the treatment of pigment. It involves targeting and breaking down the melanin pigment in the

skin. Patients experience initial darkening of the pigment, which is then naturally exfoliated – or helped along greatly with medical-grade topical skin care during the course of the subsequent days. Medical-grade topical skin care can involve hydroquinone. Less effective treatments like soy-based and lower strength products overthe-counter are mostly recommended for maintenance at best. Hydroquinone has more than 30 years of use in skin care. It can also be misleadingly known as “bleaching” cream, but only inhibits the production of extra melanin. It is a substance that directly inhibits the key enzyme responsible for the final step of melanin (pigment) production, unlike less effective overthe-counter products. In prescription strength, medical-grade quality, over a limited body surface area and under the care of a physician, it is safe. There are so many ways to help treat unwanted skin pigment, and it is always best to seek the recommendation of your skin care physician for dramatic results. Brooke Tetrault is director of operations at ClarityMD and can be reached at 571-8900 or info@ ClarityMD.com.

What brings you happiness? Commentary by Kristen Boice

What does happiness mean to you? Does it mean peace, loving and accepting yourself, stepping into your Relationships worth or something else? Stop and really think about the question. Figuring this out can be extremely powerful and life changing. Is happiness about achievements, stuff, money, beauty or how many likes you have on your Facebook status updates? Maybe it is about helping others, growing, learning, giving back, living out your purpose, feeling good about who you are, making a contribution and difference in the world by showing up and being you, or living with intention. We live in a society that encourages us to buy into materialism, beauty, wealth, fame, moving to the top and how many friends you have on Facebook. We think this is the way to happiness. We think this will bring us happiness, worth and importance. Ultimately, we end up in a black hole because it never is enough. We end up not feeling important, good enough or adequate. There are many people who appear to have it all, yet they are miserable. Here are a few suggestions when reflecting on the topic of happiness. 1. Explore your vision for happiness. What would happiness look like? Would it be more about self-acceptance, forgive-

ness, letting go and having more inner peace? Would it be living out your purpose? 2. Surround yourself with people that are encouraging. It is important that we have some cheerleaders in our lives that mirror back to us our worth for simply being who we are. When we look at a baby, they are pure souls with no layers. We are all inherently worthy. We just may not believe it based on our past. 3. Get vulnerable with safe people. It is essential to be able to stand in our power and speak our truth with love and grace. Connection comes from opening up and really sharing who we are with others. It is the heartbeat to joy. 4. Be a giver, not a taker. There are people that give from their heart and there are people that suck energy out of a room. Show up and give. It is a life changer. 5. Change your thoughts. If you feel like you are unworthy, notice what you are telling yourself. It probably comes from the past. When we work on changing how we see ourselves, we gain more selfacceptance and greater peace.

Enzymes are good for more than digestion Commentary by John Mikesell Enzymes can be used for healing body tissues, not just for digestion. Enzymes given Pets with food are used for digestion, but certain enzymes (proteases, which break down proteins) can also help with inflammation, pain, recovery from injury and more when given apart from food. Systemic enzyme therapy, also called metabolic or proteolytic enzyme therapy, allows enzymes to enter the body where they can be used for healing rather than digestion. Examples of proteolytic enzymes include pancreatin, trypsin, and chymotrypsin (from the pancreas); bromelain (from pineapple); and papain (from papaya). Proteolytic enzymes work best for inflammation when given away from meals and combined with a bioflavonoid such as quercetin or rutin (rutosid). What are the benefits of such a regime? Systemic enzyme therapy is theorized to work by breaking down proteins in the blood that cause inflammation, and by removing fibrin, which prolongs inflammation. Proponents say that systemic enzyme therapy promotes health in every part of the body by

reducing pain and inflammation, speeding healing, supporting a healthy immune system, shrinking tumors and preventing metastasis from cancer. Enzyme therapy may also help to prevent soreness and injury during and after exercise when taken routinely. Studies in the U.S. are limited, but systemic enzyme therapy has been studied and used in Germany for decades. But there are cautions: Proteolytic enzymes can thin blood and increase the risk of bleeding, especially at higher doses. Do not give to dogs with clotting disorders, gastric ulcers or those receiving blood-thinning medications. If anemia or signs of bleeding develop, discontinue right away. High doses also may cause diarrhea. See your health professional for more information on these products.

A GIRL’S GUIDE TO PROM DRESSES Strapless This is a perfect style to choose if you’re looking to show off arms and shoulders. Add a simple clutch to maintain ladylike elegance. Short Show off some leg in a prom-perfect mini! Look for this style in a fun sequin fabric to really spice things up!

THE OVERSIZED TOP KNOT The top knot has gotten super-sized! Go for a big ballerina bun when you really want to make a statement. Start by creating a tight pony at the crown of your head, and back comb it into a wild mess. Then, tame it with a paddle brush as you work it into your desired shape. For the most dramatic look, make sure the height of the updo aligns with your chin.

One-Shoulder The one shoulder silhouette is a great alternative to strapless and it looks great with hair up or down. Pair it with a skinny belt and a simple bag and pumps. Open Back Choose an open back style for an unexpected dose of glamour. Pair this style with a simple up-do. Long Sleeves Long sleeves are a great way to balance out a short dress. This style looks great in a bold color. Full Skirt The classic look of a full skirt is definitely a great go-to for prom. Keep your hair and accessories simple and let the dress speak for itself.

Mother Nature gives us a break Commentary by Randy Sorrell Let these modest words be the inspiration you may require to finally get the “spring cleaning” accomplished in the landoutdoors scape beds. Fortunately Mother Nature has provided a little grace this year with cloudy, cooler temperatures and later bloom cycles. The ornamental grasses have yet to green up, which means we still have a little time to dirty our fingernails. First, I like to start with cleaning the gutters so resulting debris is removed before mulching. Then, go for any larger debris that has likely accumulated in the beds. Second, focus on severely pruning overgrown shrubs that need fit back into the landscape using heavy loppers or long blade pruners. Reblooming roses, spirea, viburnum, potentilla and forsythia are ideal candidates for this rejuvenation and often behave like vigorous new shrubs filled with enthusiasm. Cut ornamental grasses back to the ground with electrical or gas powered hedge trimmers and snip back last year’s

perennials with hand pruners. Third, it’s amazing what a freshly cut edge on landscape beds can do for crisp appearance. A sharp, straight edged spade is required for this heart-pounding task. Then complete a detailed cleaning of the beds. Finally, the fun begins. Carefully apply the appropriate fertilizer (all purpose 12.12.12 with a separate flowering shrub fertilizer on those jewels) and pre-emergent weed control. Mulch is the most important component of the process, and I get ridiculously choosy about the type of product. Ask for premium mulch with no fillers of ground up railroad ties, pallets or sand. If you have not tried the brown or black color enhanced mulch, give it a shot. It holds its color all year! This process will set you up for a low-maintenance season of healthy plants and sharp beds.

One of those days? Help is just around the corner.

Five things not to fuss with Commentary by Holly Lindzy

For printing your a quote next job. on CALL TODAY US

“Our mission includes recognizing opportunities to support the performing arts in our community.”

- Dr. Tammy Wittmann

There are things in nature that appear worse than they are, just as in life. And gardening is a haughty manipulation of nagardening ture where we only win part of the time. That being said, I thought I’d offer some comfort to help you begin this gardening season on a positive note. Buckle up – here are the top five things not to sweat this year, in no particular order. • Lichen on the trees is probably my favorite no-sweat plant issue. It can look like mold on the branches and trunk, when actually it’s part algae/part fungus, and it’s a good indicator that the environment is clean. Score! • Preventing crabgrass … it’s too late. Treat with herbicide or pull like the dickens and make a mental note to apply preemergent granules next March. • Sealing the pruning cuts you’ve made to your tree. Trees will recover from this naturally, assuming the pruning is done properly, and the tree is healthy. Anything you apply to the “wound” is

only going to impede healing and could potentially cause issues for you later. Skip it. • Mulching, if you are tight on money or don’t have the time. Your garden isn’t going to turn on you if you skip a year. Sure, it looks pretty and (I think) smells nice, but your soil can take a pass just once if it has to. Consider turning the existing over to refresh it, instead. • Spraying for “all the bugs!” The ingredient you spray to control the real pest is the same that will wipe out the bees and butterflies. If it’s a must, use a systemic insecticide that’s taken up through the roots into the plant for feeder pests to ingest and suffer from, rather than knocking off the innocent bystanders, too. I leave you with one last thought. Gardening is a hobby where you can get down and dirty with no shame. Take that and run with it. Happy gardening!

Jack-and-Jill can stop squabbles Commentary by David Decker

As anyone who grew up with siblings can attest, having multiple children share a bathroom can create a difficult situation. indoors Most mornings it seems like everyone needs to use the bathroom at the exact same time, leading to squabbles, hassles and running late. If you are looking for a new solution, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom may be the perfect addition to your home. “Jack-and-Jill” refers to a shared bathroom that is connected by two separate bedrooms. Sitcom fans may remember that all six Brady Bunch kids shared a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. If it worked for them, it can certainly work for your family. Let’s take a look at a few ways to design a Jack-and-Jill bathroom that your kids will love. Privacy is the main benefit of a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The best Jack-and-Jill designs feature a layout that separates the various areas of the bathroom, like the shower and sink areas. That way, one child can be taking a shower while another brushes his teeth without having to compromise any privacy. Jack-and-Jill bathrooms usually feature separated amenities that allow each child to have their own space in the bathroom. So, you may want to install two sinks, two mirrors, two linen closets and two cabinets if space allows. Doubling up helps cut down on crowding and makes it easier to share the space. Cabinet storage can

also help you keep things organized and running smoothly in a frequently used bathroom. Ample storage will cut down on clutter and ensure that each sibling knows where his or her toiletries are located. Kids have a knack for making watery messes in the bathroom. So you’ll probably want to select bathroom flooring that’s equipped to handle spills. Ceramic or porcelain tiles are always a good bet accompanied by a tile baseboard for easy clean up. Once you’ve decided on the layout and flooring, you can start planning the fun design aspects of the bathroom. For a kid’s bathroom, you’ll probably want to plan for versatility. Choose neutral, durable plumbing fixtures and cabinetry designs that can match any design scheme. From there, you can create a fun design backdrop that can be changed once the kids outgrow it. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring. They are based in Carmel (575-9540, www.the-affordablecompanies.com). E-mail home improvement questions to david.decker@the-affordablecompanies.com.
