Open during construction – The Goodwill store at 1617 E. 151st St., Westfield, is open for shopping and donating during the construction on U.S. 31, which started on May 20.

Stars didn’t align for market By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Officials said a couple of obstacles have caused the decision to cancel the 2013 season of the Westfield Farmers Market. closed The Westfield Downtown Association said a decline in vendor numbers and the construction taking place along U.S. 31 and in downtown Westfield were the primary causes for the cancelation of the sixth year of the farmers market. “The stars were not aligning for the market this year,” said city spokeswoman Carrie Cason. “There’s a downward trend in the number of vendors.” Cason said the market had 50 to 60 vendors last year, but this year’s numbers were down to 35. “We knew the attendance would be down because of construction,” she said. “Vendors want to have attendance, or they won’t come back.” Planned demolition and construction along Ind. 32 is expected to travel as far east as Mill Street. “It’s going to affect downtown Westfield immensely,” Cason said. “We’re putting ourselves at risk for having a bad market.”

ON THE WEB

Since the announcement was made, Cason said she has heard the gamete of responses from citizens about the cancelation of the Friday-evening tradition. “It’s better all around for the community to not risk a poor market and get a reputation with vendors,” she said. To avoid competing with bigger morning markets surrounding the cities of Carmel and Noblesville, the Westfield market was held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday nights in June through the end of August. “(Last year) it was sweltering hot at 4:30 p.m.,” Cason said, adding the heat caused lower than normal attendance most weeks. Cason said the decision may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. The time off will allow organizers to determine whether to keep the market next to city hall or locate to a larger location. Cason said the new Grand Park may be an option for the 2014 season. “The goal is to have Grand Junction Plaza done in 2005 and to have it there eventually,” she said. “There’s a lot going into that decision. We have the downtime to get organized and come back bigger and better.”

Shooting believed drug-related

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Westfield Police officers were still investigating a shooting at press time that happened in the early morning hours of May 22. Crime There were no injuries reported and Cpt. Charles E. Hollowell said police believed the incident was drug related. At 6:30 a.m., Westfield Police officers were called to the North Union Apartments at 530 N. Union St. to investigate a report of shots being fired. Hollowell said when officers arrived, they were told that at least two unknown people had entered an apartment that was occupied by one adult male resident.

“The resident was awoken (at gunpoint) by the unknown persons. However, the occupant was not injured during the incident, and it is unknown why the persons entered the residence,” Hollowell said. “The unknown persons fled the scene firing several shots back at the apartment. A vehicle was seen speeding away from the complex.” Hollowell was unable to discuss any further details. Anyone with information related to this incident are asked to contact the Westfield Police Dept.’s Criminal Investigations Division at 8043200 or Crime Stoppers at 262-8477. Visit www.currentinwestfield.com for updates to this story. Bark for your park – The Friends of Westfield Bark Park, in partnership with the City of Westfield’s Parks & Recreation Dept., have once again nominated Westfield in the PetSafe “Bark for Your Park” contest. Westfield has been a finalist in each of the past two years and wants to improve on that this year, but it needs help from the community. The grand prize is $100,000 that would go towards the development of Osborne Park (169th Street and Ditch Road, just south of Maple Glen Elementary School). There are also percapita prizes of $25,000. The first round of voting is taking place now through May 31. Anyone (not just Westfield residents) can support this effort by voting twice each day – once at www. petsafe.net/barkforyourpark/city/5090/ westfield-in/ and once at www.facebook.com/ petsafebrand.

U.S. 31 closing – INDOT has closed 156th Street west of U.S. 31. The intersection of U.S. 31 and 156th Street has been restricted to right-in, right-out access since both directions of traffic on U.S. 31 were shifted to share the northbound side of the highway. As construction of the new souththe commute bound U.S. 31 overpass continues, INDOT and contractors anticipate the overpass wall on the north side of 156th Street will encroach on a safe line of sight for traffic on eastbound 156th Street turning onto southbound U.S. 31. Therefore, for the safety of motorists, this intersection is being closed. Access to private driveways will be maintained on the closed section of 156th Street. Through traffic on 156th Street will be restored after U.S. 31 traffic is shifted to newly-constructed southbound lanes later this summer. Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route during the closure.

Mother’s Day crafts a hit

By Anna Skinner • news@currentinwestfield.com In preparation for Mother’s Day, the Westfield Washington Public Library held a gift making workshop for kids ages 3 and up library on May 11. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., children dropped by to enjoy making handmade crafts for their moms. Children’s Librarian Georgianne Parshall and her eighth-grade son, Evan, helped set up the program by cutting out tags for the gift wrapping and arranging the different crafts. With options like painting ceramic picture frames, sun catchers, foam crafts with stickers, coloring crafts, and Perler beads, the children

could make a variety of gifts for Mom. Among the first few participants to filter through the craft room doors were 4-year-old Elli Howard and her father, Andrew. Elli immediately went to the table with the Perler beads and started constructing a dragonfly. Her father picked out a Perler beads design to do with his daughter as well. “We really like events like this that the library puts on,” Howard said. “It’s something fun for my daughter and me to do together. It also makes Mother’s Day gifts easy and convenient.” The gifts cost just one dollar each to make. The children could then place their gift in a paper bag and tie a ribbon around it, and the gift was ready to take home to mom.

ARE YOUR KIDS GETTING WHAT THEY NEED IN SCHOOL? As a parent, you are your child's first and most important teacher. You know your child best, and your input should be considered by the school at every opportunity. Parents frequently do not know what their children's rights are in terms of the education and services offered by the schools, and they often can feel intimidated by school staffs. Your child has the right to a free appropriate public education under federal law. If you suspect that your child may have a disability, let your child’s school know. Parents have the right to be involved with every decision regarding their child’s education, including whether your child may need special education services. If your child is struggling behaviorally or academically, his school may be required to do an evaluation to see if he qualifies for special services. Trust your instincts: you know your child best. The worst thing to do is nothing. If you wait to seek help for your child, his frustration and sense of failure could continue to break down his self-esteem, while the window of time for meaningful intervention narrows. Each child qualifying for services are required by federal law to receive an Individualized Education Program, or IEP. IEPs are put together by a team of school staff and schools are required by law to include parents in this process. However, parents often feel as though they have little input to their child’s IEP because they are unaware of what their child’s rights are. This can have a serious impact and their child's progress can be impaired by a lack of knowledge. "What we have is what you get" is not what the federal and state laws provide. Schools receiving federal funding are required, by law, to devise an IEP for each child qualified for services based on that child's individual needs (not on the school's staffing or budget problems) that is reasonably calculated to confer a meaningful educational benefit.

Anything less than that does not comply with the federal law, and is actionable through a due process proceeding. Examples of how schools commit violations: 1. Failure to find a child eligible for services despite evidence that the child was struggling academically or behaviorally. 2. Failure to develop an appropriate IEP based on the child's individual needs. 3. Failure to implement the IEP as written. 4. Failure to involve parents to meaningfully participate in the IEP development process. 5. Failure to prevent punishment of the child for actions or inactions that are manifestations of the child's disability (caused by the child's disability). 6. Failure to train staff and aides in the child's areas of disability. 7. Predetermining placement and services before the case conference committee meeting. 8. Failure to conduct necessary evaluations of the child. 9. Failure to provide education and services in the least restrictive environment. 10. Failure to offer extended school year services to the child. 11. Failure to allow a child with special needs to participate in extracurricular activities to the same extent as his non-disabled peers. At Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., our team has the experience, the understanding, and the compassion to assist with your family law needs. If you have questions or concerns regarding divorce, mediation, collaborative law or any other family law concerns, please contact our firm at 317.DIVORCE or visit our website at www.hzlegal.com.

Pedal power

Journey of Hope designed to enlighten its riders By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

This summer, Westfield’s Sam Newblom will see America from the seat of his bike. Beginning June 5 in Seattle, Newblom cover story will spend 68 days traveling through three time zones and approximately 4,000 miles to Washington, D.C., as part of the Pi Kappa Phi Journey of Hope. “That’s something I wanted to do – a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” he said. “I’ve been told by others that it is the greatest summer of your life.” Push America is a nonprofit organization that serves people with disabilities. It was founded in 1977 as the national philanthropy of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity with the purpose of instilling lifelong service in its members and enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities. Cycling was introduced 10 years ago with the cross-country Journey of Hope event. “Everyone that’s done the journey says the group becomes 20 of your best friends. You have those days each person has to push each other. I know someone will be there to push me,” Newblom said. Newblom rushed Pi Kappa Phi in the spring semester of his sophomore year at Purdue University. “I wasn’t going Greek, not interested at all,” said the senior Boilermaker. “I found out about Push America and thought this is not your normal fraternity.” The Journey of Hope has three routes starting on the west coast (Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles), which all meet in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 10. “It’s going to be exciting meeting them in the nation’s capital,” he said. Newblom will be joined by six of his chapter brothers, including four on the same route. “There are 100 people from across the country with 20 riders on the TransAmerica route and seven crew members in vans,” he said. “The best part is getting to know 20 new guys and getting to see the country.” Newblom said his biggest concern about the trip is traveling through the mountains. “Not only going up, but going down too. Going 40-plus miles per hour on a bike with half-inch size wheels,” he said. Previous cyclists have warned Newblom to watch out for dogs and prepare for the lack of landscape of the Great Plains. “I grew up in Nebraska and it’s going to get a little boring. I heard the guys played a game of ‘who can find a tree?’ A person found one and won,” he joked. Newblom said on normal days, cyclists wake up by 6 a.m. and

Meet Sam Newblom

• Age: 21 • Birthplace: Philadelphia • Residence: Westfield • Family: Parents, Bob and Jane Newblom; brother, Abe; and sister, Jessica. • Education: 2010 graduate of Westfield High School. Majoring in mechanical engineering at Purdue University (class of 2014) • Hobbies: Disc golf, weight lifting and staying active in intramural sportds at Purdue

are on the road by 6:30 a.m. After riding an average of 75 miles a day, you won’t find team members napping at local Boys & Girls Clubs or gymnasium floors to prepare for the next day’s ride. Instead, riders will be dancing at a friendship visit with a local group that supports people with disabilities, participating in a game of wheelchair basketball, performing puppet shows to educate children on the abilities of people with disabilities, or learning life lessons that will impact them for the rest of their lives. “This trip is also to teach myself about disabilities, abilities and how I can help. I want to better myself to help people around me,” he said. “It’s one of those things that will challenge me throughout this ride.” Because Journey of Hope is comprised of fraternity members, the majority of past team members have never done any serious cycling. To prepare, the Purdue chapter annually hosts the Pi Kappa 100, a 100 km (60-mile) ride from Zionsville to West Lafayette. “I bought my first bike for the ride and loved it,” he said. “I do not have a lot of experience at all.” During the winter, Newblom prepared by training in his room and has since moved outdoors with the nicer weather. “I’m in better shape than most but nowhere near Lance Armstrong. It’s going to be a push to get through 75 miles a day every day,” he said. Newblom’s fraternal family will not be the only ones supporting him on the trip. His parents, Bob and Jane Newblom, and aunt will see him off in Seattle and his brother, Abe, will visit when the trip stops in Denver, Colo. Newblom will be in Indianapolis at the end of July. “I’m definitely going to miss my family the most and friends around here,” Newblom said. “I worked at Klipsch Music Center the last two years, so missing this year’s season is a little bit sad.” Before Newblom can make that first push of his pedal, he had to raise $5,500. With less than a month before his trip, he still had $1,000 to raise. While he has since reached that mark, Newblom is short of his personal goal of $7,000.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Honors keep coming for Westfield schools

Remember the fallen

It is our position that the intention of Memorial Day should not be diluted by commercialization. It seems swimming pool openings and department store sales are overshadowing what was once a solemn day of remembrance for the tens of thousands of selfless men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives for our country. To most civilians, freedom is protected in a parallel universe as most go about their days without a second thought of the battle front. A son, daughter, parent or grandparent turns into a Troop. At its most tragic, the Troop turns into a number and another flag is lowered at halfmast, many times without fanfare or notice. According to icasualties.org, during the last dozen years alone, more than 8,000 men and women in the military have perished in either hostile or non-hostile circumstances in Afghanistan and Iraq. Nearly 200 Hoosiers are on the list, including Troops from Hamilton and Boone counties. War Memorials should be visited, remembrance services should be attended and American flags should be lowered until noon, raised thereafter, lowered before nightfall and stored properly. In the words of Ronald Reagan, “We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free.”

Cranky old men Commentary by Terry Anker As a kid growing up, it was still routinely possible to catch showings of “Dennis the Menace” or “The Little Rascals” on Saturday morning television. These were not the animated variety produced by the lot in some anime sweatshop in a faraway subcontinent. Instead, they were live action films (sometimes shorts) often pitting the folly of youth against the stodgy recalcitrance of middle age. Routinely, it would seem, Dennis would find his new baseball in the living room of the neighboring Wilson home. Dennis’ intense focus on retrieving the ball was seldom daunted by the fact that the path from his long line drive to the Wilson sofa came directly through the Wilson’s front room plate glass window. As an adolescent, I deeply felt the angst of young Mister Menace. He didn’t mean to break the window. In fact, it hadn’t even occurred to him that it might occur. Mr. Wilson, on the other hand, seemed inordinately bitter. Why would he keep the young kid’s ball? Did Wilson covet the

ball for his own? Did he dislike little boys or baseball? Fortunately, as with much of early television, Mrs. Wilson would intervene and negotiate a truce. Dennis would get his ball, Mr. Wilson would get a freshly-made glass of cold lemonade, and Mrs. Wilson would enjoy knowing that she was the generational peacekeeper. But today, I find Mr. Wilson looking back at me during the morning shave. Case-in-point: it is increasingly difficult not to scold teenagers on the streets near my own car not to text and drive. I want to honk the horn and shake my finger! Put that down! Don’t you know how dangerous your action is? Can Mrs. Wilson broker a deal, or have I simply come to know that Mr. Wilson was right all along?

We won’t grow tired of congratulating Westfield Washington Schools for being recognized nationally for excellence. A few weeks ago, we saluted Westfield High School for being named one of the most outstanding secondary schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report magazine. Last week, we learned the high school also was named one of America’s Best High Schools by Newsweek and The Daily Beast, which highlights the best 2,000 public high schools in the nation; the schools honored are those that have shown to be accomplished at graduating college-ready students. “This is a reflection of our staff’s philosophy to provide outstanding programs in preparing our students for the next level,” Principal Dr. Stacy McGuire stated. WHS is ranked 10th in the state among 28 Indiana schools and 1,183rd nationally. We’re told the list is based on six components: graduation rate (25 percent), college acceptance rate (25 percent), advanced tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average advanced-test scores (10 percent), and percent of students enrolled in at least one advanced course (5 percent). It’s quite an achievement. So, too, is the district being recognized by The Partnership for Excellence as one of 11 high-performing organizations receiving 2013 Awards for Excellence. WWS received a Silver Level – Commitment to Excellence Award, one of TPE’s highest honors for organizational performance through innovation, results and visionary leadership using the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. “As a district, we are pleased to be recognized for our continuous quality improvements and are extremely proud of our district’s success,” Supt. Dr. Mark Keen stated. The district’s organizational excellence comes through processes that are systematic and incremental and support student-learning goals of the WWS Strategic Plan, which focuses on preparing graduates for college and career readiness.

Call a Mother’s Day do-over

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Were you one of the hundreds, dare I say, thousands, of women who experienced a less-than-perfect Mother’s humor Day? Then, call a do-over! I am hereby giving you permission to reschedule Mother’s Day on a day that actually works into your schedule, where no children are sick, and when you aren’t hosting an elaborate brunch for your mother-inlaw. Because that’s just bull. You get one shot all year to enjoy yourself, to feel special, to perhaps take a break from the daily grind of parenting, and you end up with a soccer game and a head cold? No dice. Or, like my infamous MD of 2003, your husband ditches you with vomiting toddler twins so he can attend his siblings’ graduation ceremonies? Capital B. Capital S. My favorite is when you’re stuck having everyone over to your house (which translates into an exhaustive weekend of cleaning and cooking) to celebrate someone else’s Mother’s Day. Double bullship. That’s why I began several years ago calling do-overs. Sometimes I have to wait until after the fact, once I’ve assessed the damage. Other times, I preemptively move MD to a more convenient day. Take this year, for example. I knew I would be returning from a birthday party in Ohio and as such, stuck in

a dilapidated mini-van with no A/C and two tweenage girls suffering from sleep deprivation and sugar withdrawal. I also knew I’d have to attend at least one sporting event, probably two. None of this fit into my supposed day of leisure and relaxation, and unfortunately, there was little I could do to change the situation. So I moved MD to the following Saturday, when I had relatively nothing on the books and Doo at home to cover. On a side note, Saturdays are superior anyway because shops have longer hours, there’s no church-skipping to feel guilt over, and all nail salons are open. Why Mother’s Day is on a Sunday, I’ll never understand. Probably a man’s decision. But back to my point, there’s no need to feel bitter about a Mother’s Day that sucks or has the potential to. Just redo it. As much as we’d like to and as hard as we try, we can’t always control what goes down on the second Sunday in May. No need to panic. Just call the audible and move on. And if your husband whines, remind him he can do the same for Father’s Day. Control your destiny, ladies, and take no bull! Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a contributing columnist.

Tribute to Sinatra brings cool warmth to theatre

By Mark Johnson • mark@youarecurrent.com

At the heart of “My Way,” lies a cool warmth. The “Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra” offers an intimate setting for fans of showtime! the iconic and legendary performer whose influence and popularity spanned generations and has become part of the fabric of our culture. Presented by the Actors Theatre of Indiana, it is a tribute to the man who some have called the greatest entertainer who ever lived: an unequaled combination of style, class, and voice. “It’s definitely about the style and class,” said Don Farrell, the show’s director and cast member. The show, which opened on May 10 and runs through June 9, is featured at the Studio Theatre in Carmel’s Center for the Performing Arts. During a sit-down chat, Farrell, seated next to fellow cast member Mary Jayne Waddell, explained the charm and nostalgia the intimate surroundings offer the audience. “The intimacy evokes strong memories,” he said enthusiastically. “Frank Sinatra sang the songs to the generations of so many lives. His songs touched so many. Sometimes, we, the performers, have to get out of the way and let the audience bask in their nostalgia.” “For me, in this space, it is so intimate that

the audience reacts,” Waddell said. “Each song stirs a memory. You can hear a sigh from the audience, and it can happen during any part of the show. It can happen during the intro to one of the songs.” Conceived by David Grapes and Todd Olson, “My Way,” is performed in a lounge-style setting which places the audience in the middle of the action. The show is divided into two acts and features Sinatra classics such as “Strangers in the Night,” “I Get a Kick out of You,” and “Fly Me to the Moon.” A total of 56 songs are heard, some of them in a medley by Farrell, Waddell, Cynthia Collins and Michael Dotson. “The first act features what are considered the torch songs, whereas the second act features more of the storytelling songs,” Farrell said. Yet, Farrell makes it clear there are no actors playing the role of Sinatra. “This is about the music of Sinatra,” he said. “No one is playing Sinatra, because no one can be Frank. There is only one Sinatra.” So, what is it that continues to draw new legions of fans to Sinatra and what is the fascination that he holds for generation after generation? “He was good to the core,” Waddell said. “Reading Sammy Davis, Jr.’s biography offers a lot of insight into what a great friend Frank

was, and he was very helpful in the fight to end segregation. He stood up for what he believed.” “Guys looked up to him,” Farrell said, “they wanted to be like him or be him, and women fawned over him. He never went out of style, because he was constantly reinventing himself. He made it cool to be a performer. Even now, many younger artists are finding that and discovering him. They admire the way that he was able to craft a song, his phrasing.” As for the production, Farrell feels that part of the appeal of the show lies within the connection between the cast members. “I have been looking forward to this production,” he said. “There are four friends coming together to present this tribute. There is so much camaraderie and so much chemistry between the four of us and the material is awesome. It is amazing!” Waddell agreed, noting that the enthusiasm from the audience energizes the performers. “Even backstage, you can feel the energy and the excitement,” she said. “When you are a performer, you can forget your day when you are on stage. That’s what we want the audience to be able to do – to forget their day, to be taken away for a couple of hours!” For more information or tickets, visit www. actorstheatreofindiana.org or call 843-3800.

Salads to ignite any celebration Commentary by Claudia Pierson Two unique and wonderful summer salads to bring to your summer gathget cooking erings or enjoy at home.

presents CELEBRATE HARMONY

Sweet Potato Salad

serves 6-8 Ingredients 4 large sweet potatoes - cut into large bite-sized cubes, 2 medium red peppers sliced thinly, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, Salt and pepper, 4 tablespoons mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoon Colemans dry mustard, 1 cup chopped celery, 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple, drained well on paper towels, 3-4 diced scallions Directions: Place sweet potatoes and red peppers in large bowl and mix with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring once, until tender and slightly browned. Cool. Whisk mayonnaise and both mustards in a bowl. When potatoes and pep-

pers are cooled to room temperature, blend all ingredients together and chill before serving. Chopped pecans add a nice texture and taste.

Cooking tip: An easy tip for removing the odor of the scallions/onions is to wash your hands thoroughly and then rub a stainless steel spoon on your fingertips.

Couscous Salad

serves 8 Ingredients: Prepare couscous as directed: 2 cups couscous / 2 cups water / 1 teaspoon olive oil. Bring water and olive oil to a boil. Turn off heat, stir in the couscous and cover. 1 cup dried cranberries 1 cup dried and diced apricots, 1 cup of caramelized thinly sliced almonds: 1 tablespoon butter melted/add 1 cup almonds/1 tsp. brown sugar 4 scallions diced Vinaigrette: 1 cup canola oil, 1/2 cup white balsamic, 1/2 cup fresh orange juice, 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, Salt an pepper Directions: When couscous has cooled, flake apart in a large bowl to avoid any lumps. Add dry ingredients and gently mix. Add vinaigrette. I usually save a small portion aside to

“refresh” the couscous after it has rested for a bit.

JUNE 14 - 15 | 12pm - 10am | Lions Park

Commentary by Dr. Barry Epply

Q: I am having a facelift soon and want things to go as well as they can. I have read about taking arnica and bromelain supplements to speed healing aesthetics and make my recovery quicker. Would these be good to take before surgery? A: These are common non-pharmaceutical supplements for healing that some plastic surgeons endorse and prescribe for surgery including facelifts. Arnica is a well-known extract of the mountain lily flower that has been used for decades to prevent or clear bruising related to any form of trauma. Taken one week before and one week after surgery, it helps prevent some of the bruising that will occur as well as speeds its resolution after surgery. Arnica is most commonly used as an oral tablet but can also be applied directly to the bruised site as a topical ointment. Bromelain is an extract in oral or liquid form from the pineapple fruit that has anti-inflammatory properties. It is commonly used for sports injury, trauma and surgery to decrease swelling. Contrary to popular belief, eating pineapple will not increase your levels of bromelain as it exists mainly in the stem of the fruit. My feeling on both supplements is that they do no harm, are relatively inexpensive, and may provide some recovery benefit, so I do advise my patients to take them particularly for any facial surgery. Q: I was wondering when I got a breast

The retreat includes a stay at a luxury resort with plenty of time for relaxation. Seminar presenters are Cynthia Husted and Amy Banter. Husted is a medical researcher with backgrounds in chemistry, physics, neuroscience and integrative medicine, and early in her career was an intensive care nurse. She will share with us her insights on transforming and healing the body, mind and spirit. Come celebrate the web of life in retreat.

lift plus augmentation whether I can get the scar around only the areola. Who is the best candidate for it? I have double DD breast size and a lot of sagging since having my son who is almost a year. A: Having DD size breasts suggests that you definitely do not need an implant but a significant breast lift. A periareolar type breast lift only provides a very limited lifting effect and is almost used exclusively in the small sagging breast when the effect of the implants helps considerably in filling out the loose breast skin and providing a lifting effect of its own. As a stand alone procedure, a periareolar breast lift, also known as a donut mastopexy, does not create a significant breast lift. By your description you are in need of a full breast lift that involves a horizontal and vertical tightening and creates the classic anchor scar pattern. While every woman would like a breast lift with limited scarring, that does not appear to be an option in your case. There are always two misconceptions that many patients have about breast reshaping surgery – breast implants can lift up a sagging breast and small scar breast lifts can create a significant lifting effect. Both are rarely true.

Take Steps to benefit Crohn’s and Colitis – On June 8, the Indiana Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation will host its annual Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis walk to raise funds for research and support programs. This event is the organization’s primary tool for spreading awareness about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease. IBD affects 1 in 200 people, including more than 30,000 Hoosiers, many of whom live in extreme pain and silence. Due to the nature of these diseases and the symptoms that accompany them, IBD is often not discussed and leaves patients feeling isolated. CCFA is working to change this. With events like Take Steps, the Indiana Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation is working to educate Indiana and provide resources to all IBD patients, their families and caretakers. Take Steps will be at White River State Park in Indianapolis and will begin at 4 p.m. with festivities including games and activities for the kids, food, music and more.  At 5 p.m. a two mile walk through the park will begin. To register or learn more visit www.cctakesteps.org/indianapolis or call 259-8071

Marco’s opens in Westfield

By Anna Skinner • news@currentinwestfield.com

Opening their doors to prospective pizza lovers last month in the Westfield area, Marco’s Pizza offers a variety of delicious pizzas, subs and wings. The pizzeria at 14641 Gray Rd. now open got the word out about its new business by sending out mailers and putting up flyers. Because of those efforts, business has steadily increased. Owners Rick and Maria Knauer chose the Westfield location because they live in the area and wanted to pick something close to home and because they are familiar with this clientele. “Marco’s was quick and affordable with big portions,” customer Hailey Kristensen said. “Overall ,it was a very good experience.” Despite the abundance of pizzas that Marco’s makes, their most popular item is its cheesy bread. “Everyone loves it,” Marco’s manager Alan Paddock said. “It goes well as a side to the pizza. I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like it.”

Paddock said pizza-wise, the biggest seller is the “White Cheezy” pizza because instead of marinara they use garlic and parmesan cheeses. Other pizzas range from Garden to Chicken Fresco. With a relaxed atmosphere, Marco’s offers its customers more than just satisfactory food. “We try to keep it happy and friendly here and all of us have a good time,” Paddock said. “We’re here to work, but we try to make sure everyone has a fun time while they’re here.” Most of Marco’s delectable food is quite affordable, yet some of their specialty pizzas lean on the pricey side. “People are paying for quality pizza, so I don’t think the price is going to be an issue,” Paddock said. However, right now, everything is relatively cheaper with all of the grand opening specials. Marco’s offers online ordering, delivery, carryout and dine in options. The store is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, call 581-1200 or visit www.marcos.com.

Since its launch in 1973, the organization has changed names and locations, but its primary mission of helping kids in need has remained the same. In 1973 there were very few resources available for kids in trouble so a group of concerned volunteers banded together and bought its first group home in 1975 which was staffed by Mr. and Mrs. Gary Zion. Since that time, Promising Futures has evolved into a multi-faceted resource center that provides many options for troubled teens and their families.

It’s all well and good

Commentary by Jordan Fischer

n’ s

Question: “I hear people mixing up ‘well’ and ‘good’ on a constant basis. Can you explain how to use each of them grammar guy correctly?” Answer: Yes, I can. I’m afraid this one is often pretty ingrained into people’s heads the wrong way, however. “Well” and “good” can both serve as adjectives, adverbs and nouns. As an adjective, “well” means “in good health” or “free from illness,” while “good” means “of a favorable character or tendency.” “Good” can also mean “free from injury or disease” in its adjective form (we’ll touch on this later). As an adverb, “well” indicates that something was done in a satisfactory way, while “good” is a synonym for “well” typically used in conversational speech or as an intensive. Finally, as a noun, “good” means “that which is morally right” or “righteousness,” while “well” means a hole in the ground filled with water or oil and from which wishes may spring forth (if you believe in that sort of thing). If you’re selecting an adverb to follow an action verb, the choice is clear: Go with “well.” Jim writes well. Jane dances well. Tom cooks well. You get the idea. When “good” follows an action verb, it should typically be a reference to a beneficial work: charity, community service, etc. In these cases, one is “doing good.” Many verbs, however, can function as both

action and linking verbs. The easiest example would be sensory verbs: touch, taste, smell, feel, etc. If you’re wearing perfume, you might smell good. However, if you have a cold, you might not smell well. In the first case, “smell” is a linking verb. In the second, it is active. You must ask yourself whether the subject of the verb is performing or receiving the action. If the subject is performing the action, i.e. doing the smelling, then follow the action verb rule and go with “well.” If the subject is receiving the action, i.e. being smelled, you’ll need to ask yourself which word’s definition better fits what you’re trying to say, as both “well” and “good” can follow linking verbs as predicate adjectives. As a final note, many people wonder whether “I am good” is an acceptable response to the question “How are you?” As both words can follow verbs as predicate adjectives, most dictionaries would say that, yes, it is an acceptable reply. In this instance, think what you are being asked. If you are responding about your physical wellbeing, go with “well.” If you are talking about your mental state or general state of being, “good” is an acceptable, and often more accurate, choice. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com.

Change is an inside job Commentary by Kristen Boice Where does your worth and value come from? We live in a society that looks outside of ourselves to feel good relationships about who we are. We compare ourselves to others and feel less than and not good enough. We will never feel enough because there is always someone better looking, richer, smarter, thinner, prettier, more successful, wealthier, has a bigger house, more fit and the list goes on. So, how do we change this? Change truly is an inside job. It takes self-work to start the process. We have to take responsibility for our own stories and begin to unpack who we really are. Over time, we will stop looking to others to tell us we are good enough or worthy. We have the ability to write our own ending by taking our power back. It begins with you. We continue doing the same things and behaviors even if it makes us feel bad about ourselves because it’s easier. Our brains like repetition and patterns. This does not mean they are healthy for us. There are some essential steps to begin the process of change. Ask yourself some key questions. Do you really want to change? Are you committed to whatever it takes to make the change? Are you ready to give up and let go of something that no longer serves you even if it makes you un-

comfortable? Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone? Are you willing to move through the fear to get to the other side? Own your own stuff. We can’t change anything unless we own it first. For example, if you want to create healthier relationships, then it’s important to take an inventory of how you have contributed to the issues. Maybe you need to improve your boundaries, how you communicate or your negativity. Growth happens when we are uncomfortable. Write down possible solutions. When you say, “I don’t know.” I challenge you to look deeper. I believe we don’t give ourselves enough credit, and we often have a gut feeling and talk ourselves out of it. Watch the self-talk. This can be the key killer to making change. The more negative self-talk, the more we won’t attempt to make a change. Write out the negative statement and then the opposite statement. We are not our thoughts. Inaction keeps you stuck. Not taking any steps, even if they are baby steps, will keep you stuck. Try doing things differently every day. Make an intention to focus on what you want. Keep trying. Never give up. You are worth it!

SWITCH IT UP! Everyone gets the impulse from time to time to change their appearance. Is now your time? All it takes is a simple hair cut or fresh color to make you feel like a new person! The short bob is one of the most popular haircuts again this year. This hair cut is perfect if you are looking for not only a trendy style but an elegant look that is practically timeless. Not looking to chop your length? Add bangs to any length of hair for an instant style update. Hair color can have a dramatic effect on an otherwise plain hair style. Rich natural brown colors are ultra-hot this year. Natural blondes and reds are big as well. Strategically placed highlights, lowlights, or panels can accentuate texture and add tons of character to your style.

LATHER UP! For most people, the act of shampooing is merely the routine of cleansing the hair of dirt and other contaminants. However, shampooing your hair is much more than that.

Always check with a Salon 01 hairstylist and get their opinion before making your final decision on what new trend works best on you. After all, they are professionals in this industry and their opinion can help you make the right decision! HOT HAIR IN A FLASH! Just because you are pressed for time doesn’t mean you can’t look sleek and stylish when stepping out! Here are a couple tricks to keep you looking stylish without spending a lot of time.

There is a wide range of specialty shampoos on the market and it is important to make sure you pick one that is right for your hair type. Your stylist understands your hair type and texture, so it is pertinent to get a professional recommendation for which shampoo works best for your hair needs. Whether it is color protecting, such as Salon 01 Concept’s True Hue Anti-Fading shampoo or Aquage’s Volumizing shampoo that you need, your stylist will be able to recommend the perfect bottle for you. Shampoos also can help prevent damage to your hair caused by chemicals or the elements. Healthy hair begins with the proper products and regimen for at-home maintenance.

First, a simple way to change your look is to merely flip your part. Try a low side part, or just parting on the opposite side, then smooth down the fly-aways with a drop of shine product (try Salon 01 Concept’s Shine and Define) to keep your look smooth and sleek. Furthermore, you can quickly give your ‘do some personality by adding a fun hair accessory. A flashy headband or silk scarf will make a glamorous statement without a lot of hassle. Stop in Salon 01 today to check out the latest selection of hair accessories!

‘I must have peonies’

Commentary by Holly Lindzy

May 2013…Garden decent, most things returning. However, bloom envy stalks through me. Every turn is photo-worthy gardening – tulips, crabapples… Right now, the lilacs are in full bloom. And, I don’t have a big, fragrant and terribly wonderful lilac. Yet, I must have blooms for my vases. So I have no choice. Tonight, I’m marauding lilac blooms. No lilac is safe from it, either, be it common, white or Sensation. I’ll take one of each, please. Well, maybe not the dwarf Korean. I don’t DISlike it, I just don’t prefer it. A few blooms from a huge, neglected roadside lilac will fill my house and family with joy. And, yes, I’m probably stealing (or whatever), but I’m not ashamed of it. As soon as people know what you’re doing, they’re like, “Hmmmm… I’m totally gonna do that, too.” Anyway, I only rob neglected lilacs, abandoned shrubs. It’s not like I steal from my friends or neighbors (unless they’re neglecting it). And I’m almost doing the lilacs a favor, since I’m obviously going to prune them correctly. Corrective

pruning, that’s what I’ll call it. Robbery, schmobbery. Some things are just worth it. I absolutely NEED to be up close and personal with flowers. Inhaling the fragrance and admiring the veining, feeling the petals and checking out the foliage. I realize this is not everyone’s idea of a rousing Saturday night, but enjoyable nonetheless. I guess that’s why some people plant things purposely to cut and enjoy in their home, such as Oriental lilies, zinnias and the like. You can throw together some great combos on the fly, although some flowers, like daffodils, won’t tolerate the company of other flowers. They ooze some gook that causes other flowers to wilt – another thing I kind of envy. Anyhow, by tomorrow my house will be filled with lilacs and the bloom envy will subside. Except the peonies are just about to bloom, and I don’t have any peonies. Must have peonies.

Leather can be a practical design foundation

Commentary by Vicky Earley

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

Leather furnishings are a constant in interior decorating. Whether you see yourself in a rich, traditional Ralph Laurendecorating type room or a So-Ho contemporary-type town home, leather can fit your décor. When selecting leather, remember moderation. It is a fabulous foundation but needs to be tempered with textiles. Avoid the sofa/loveseat combination at all costs. One of my favorite leather vendors, Coopers and Rogers, has introduced amazing leather colors from vibrant orange to sultry lilac. Every shade sets a mood and makes a statement. For a designer look, consider using the leather as welting on sofas, chairs and pillows. It’s an unexpected element that has the added advantage of durability. When making a leather selection, remember that all hides are not created equal. As always, do your due diligence before writing the check. The quality piece will still look great and improve with age while an inferior grade will reveal its true self in no time. Have fun with your leather choice by considering a vibrant color on a traditional frame for an unexpected twist. A traditional dye on a contemporary frame takes you to the edge of modern without pushing you off the cliff. Although leather is one of the easiest materi-

manufacturer’s instructions. A recent seminar from a Cooper’s and Rogers’s seminar revealed the following care instructions: Most leathers are protected by a clear top coat that seals the surface from moisture and soil. When your leather piece needs to be cleaned, start with clean, distilled water and a natural sponge or cotton cloth. Use a light touch on the affected area as you don’t want to soak the leather. Doing so will create another, larger stain. Rubbing the area will spread the stain and push it farther into the material so dab with a light touch. The goal is to transfer the stain from the furniture to the cloth rather than push it around. If a night of buttered popcorn ends up in an oily stain, it can usually be removed, but you need to act fast. Apply a small amount of cornstarch or talcum powder to the area and allow it time to absorb. Wipe the powder off with a dry cloth and repeat the process until all the oil has been absorbed. Leathers are forgiving when cared for properly but not all stains and scratches can be dealt with at home. Leather care experts can be your best friend when it comes to a long and lovely relationship with your leather furnishing.

New flooring, cabinetry, wall and ceiling finishes give the entire first floor an updated feel. (Submitted photo)

Whole-house remodel a success Commentary by Larry Greene

ORIGINAL HOME: Built in the late 1980s, this home in the Foster Ridge neighborhood on the east side of East Carmel, was indoors due for a remodel. The owners have lived there since 1993 and raised three kids in the home. “The home needed upgrading,” said the homeowner. “We knew we were going to stay in Indiana, and since we like the house and the neighborhood, we decided to remodel.” DESIGN PHASE: The design team was brought in to redesign the entire first floor as well as the master bathroom. “I wanted a different look, and every room needed attention. It was easier to do everything at once,” the homeowner said. A minimalistic, clean look led the style for the home, including painted white wood work and dark hardwood flooring. Removing walls to create a more open floor plan and repurposing unused rooms were the themes of the final design plan. “We were not using our dining room, so we turned it into an office. We also did not use the formal living room, so we turned that into what we call The Player’s Lounge for games.” KITCHEN DESIGN: “I wanted the kitchen to be more open and to have more cabinets,” the homeowner said. “The old cabinets seem to just gather dust, so we went for in-laid white cabinetry. We had the soffits removed, and we enlarged the island so it could accommodate both a cook top and a serving area. Removing the half-wall allowed us to bring in a much larger table. We now have new kitchen appliances which are very easy to clean.”

Saturday, June 15, 2013 10:30am - 3:00pm Every room needs attention.

LAUNDRY ROOM: Like many recent laundry room remodels, the focus was on organization. “Before the remodel, we had open shelving and clutter. We wanted to be able to organize everything into cabinets. We added a refrigerator, which took the place of a closet, so we added cabinetry to take its place.” MASTER BATHROOM: The project involved replacing a small shower and garden tub with a large shower area. “We have a tub on the same level, so we do not miss the one we had. Also, I wanted more cabinet space, but I really like the look of pedestal sinks. So, we added wall cabinetry to the bathroom.” Larry Greene is the owner of Case Design/Remodeling Indy, a fullservice design/build remodeling firm serving Boone, Hamilton, and Marion Counties.
