“I am happy as can be! It is wonderful to have no back pain after the Laser Treatments from Dr. Srini”……… Robert Russell who is still back pain free at 8 months after treatment, is the world’s first patient to receive the minimally invasive Deep Tissue Low Intensity Laser Therapy (DT-LILT™) for failed back surgery syndrome. DT-LILT™ involves a new contact laser device for selectively destroying the C pain fibers while leaving the healthy tissues intact. DTLILT™ is invented by Dr. Srini and is first of its kind in the world. DT-LILT™ is NOT FDA approved and is available only at Advanced Interventional Pain Center.

“ I would say the future of pain care is here. With terrible leg pain I had hardly played any golf for the last 2 years. After getting just one treatment from Dr. Srini, I cannot believe that I completed the entire 18 holes with absolutely no pain ”….. Otis Oliver, after permanent pain relief from peripheral vascular pain. He does not require surgery.

“ I had severe tail bone pain and sciatica after falling on a hard object. For five years I had suffered in severe pain visited many treatment facilities and have spent over $ 60,000 in treatments without any pain relief. I am simply delighted that after just one treatment I am pain free”….. Barbara Wolfe, one year after treatment.

“My knees are 100% pain free without surgery after Dr. Srini’s treatment and I feel 10 years younger!”......... Mary Flora (Kokomo, IN)

“ Over three years I have suffered from terrible headaches, I also had low back pain. I was told there was no hope for my pain condition and was put on addictive medications that affected my everyday functioning. I am simply delighted that I am pain free after 3 treatments by Dr. Srini who explained the science behind my pain condition. He has proven that my incurable pain condition was indeed curable! ”….. Edwina Foust after receiving permanent pain relief from headaches.

My name is Vicki Hinkle. I have struggled with foot pain for many, many years. I have had treatment and surgery from several very experienced, sympathetic doctors over the years with some results. As time went on the foot pain increased to the point to cause life style changes. I enjoyed outdoor hiking, long walks with loved ones and occasionally a day of shopping with friends. I had accepted with sadness; the reality those days were gone. A family member had gone to Dr. Srinivasan for back pain and had experienced wonderful results. I was encouraged to inquire about possible help with my foot pain. I had wonderful results in less than a week after my treatment by Dr. Srinivasan. It has now been several months; I am still pain free. I am able to exercise, accomplished weight loss and enjoy outdoor activities once again. I encourage anyone dealing with pain of any kind to schedule a consultation with Dr. Srinivasan and decide for yourself. The options available to you may give you some of your life back too!

OUR VIEWS

It is our position that Hamilton County deserves a standing ovation for ranking No. 1 in overall health out of Indiana’s 92 counties in the second-annual County Health Rankings survey conducted by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (countyhealthrankings.org). The survey factors in mortality, morbidity, health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, as well as physical environment. We are fortunate to live in a community where residents have the desire to take responsibility for their health as well as access to wonderful parks and recreation facilities. Grocery stores and restaurants with healthy food choices are abundant. We boast a good ratio of primary health care providers to residents and access to nationally ranked hospitals. We’re also taking responsibility for our health by engaging in preventative behaviors such as getting proper health screenings, and our county has low smoking and obesity rates. In these hard economic times, Hamilton County residents also enjoy a low unemployment rate. While we continue to squabble over how these valuable resources are developed, managed and funded, we should pat ourselves on the back and consider how lucky we really are to be Hamilton County residents.

Subplots

It is our opinion that the Butler Bulldogs recent success (and humility in failure) is the best story in basketball. This small school in Indianapolis, built with players the “top tier” programs have brushed aside, has done what no other Indiana school has been able to do in the history of college basketball: back-toback Final Four appearances. Watching these games has given us amazing thrills, and listening to the players and coaches have given us goose bumps. But there is so much more to this program than effective provision of entertainment. The Bulldogs shrugged off this criticism and found a way to win. Please consider the fact that one of the star players, Matt Howard, is just as much of a star in the classroom as on the hardwood and was named the overall Academic All-American for men’s college basketball. This player, along with the rest of the team, exemplifies what “college athlete” is supposed to mean. Pick any of the subplots or simply the main story, and it is what team sports is all about. Mid-major colleges aren’t supposed to get to the Final Four … but then again we would say Butler is no longer a mid major. Go Bulldogs!

FROM THE BACKSHOP

READERS’ VIEWS

This is getting really ugly, folks

Westfield’s lucky to have Cook

As if there were a single doubt, the election season is upon us full force in all its glory, or, perhaps we should state, ugliness. We had urged all the competitors and their loyalists in this great game of politics to mind their manners throughout. That, unfortunately and sadly, went out the window these last few weeks, when the Burma Road-style campaign signs of incumbent Mayor Andy Cook were taken from their perches and others touting his candidacy for re-election were removed or knocked down and replaced with signs asking residents to vote for challenger Russell Cameron. We’re not suggesting Cameron did any of the aforementioned deeds; it more likely was overzealous campaign workers (we’ve seen this before elsewhere, so no surprise there). Regardless, it was wrong. To amp up the stench of campaign season (this stuff often gets ugly; we’ve seen that elsewhere, too), Cameron’s camp filed a complaint with the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office, alleging Cook’s deputy mayor, Bruce Hauk, of improperly using his office and Westfield resources to help Cook campaign. Cameron alleges Hauk to be a city manager. He is not. Westfield does not have a city-manager form of government. Westfield is managed by Cook. Hauk assists

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg him in the same ways Steve Engelking assists Mayor Jim Brainard in Carmel. We cannot imagine Hauk, in our opinion as ethical and as spiritual a man as we’ve come across in government, to have used city time or resources to campaign for Cook. We suppose it’s possible – anything is possible - but we very highly doubt it. What we don’t doubt, however, is that what should have been a genteel run by all parties for May 3 votes has turned into a stinking, ugly mess. ••• Congrats to Carrie Cason, the city’s public information officer, for being appointed vice-president of the board of the Hamilton County Leadership Academy.

Historic alignment COMMENTARY By Terry Anker Surprisingly, kids are not that different from regular humans. While a compelling case might be made that teenagers are (during their transition from childhood, they sometime morph into something more animal-like), we all, young and old, operate within fairly defined parameters. Our tolerance for temperature, our need for food and water, and our regulation of bodily functions all fall within a comparatively narrow band of what sustains us. Said another way, we are far more alike as humans than we are different. It is in that mindset that we have arranged our annual Spring Break trips. The boys, like boys are likely to do, would be overjoyed if we were to make each trip an homage to them. Days would be filled with cotton candy, amusement parks and football games. Alternatively, their mother and I would park on a beach or in an urban high rise and avoid the crowds, lines and electronic interruptions that so define our workday worlds and enjoy sim-

ple companionship. But we, the kids and the adults, negotiated a compromise: Our family jaunts operate in a simple rotation – amusement park, then beach, then historic site. It has worked remarkably well. But the unexpected consequence of the whole scheme is that we all seem to enjoy the outings more. The kids endure a museum tour knowing that next year will bring rollercoasters. And we adults laugh alongside Sponge Bob Square Pants (if you don’t know who he is, you should look him up) secure in the understanding that we’re all in this together. Yet the most surprising turn is in how much the history tours have brought us together. We plan, study and explore for months each taking our own lessons. I guess learning side-by-side reminds us how human, how much the same, we really are. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Editor, What a jewel Westfield has for a mayor! He carefully listens to the input of the citizen’s open volunteer task groups, WeCAN (a network of officers from all HOAs) and the Advisory Plan Commission. He has surrounded himself with true pros who understand people management, the concept of public service, long and short range planning, municipal law and balanced civic financing. He believes in and practices the accountability of all civic employees. He is popular and respected by them. Morale is high after effectively trimming city staff by thirty. He responds to all citizen inquiries, makes all records available to the public, and keeps all meetings open (except those on certain legal matters as required by law). He is the first sign of real likable honest-togoodness leadership Westfield has seen. Because

of his style, class, honesty and patience through this rough economic cycle, his great stated VISION for Westfield has a magnificent future. Let’s keep Andy Cook. As one who was such a critic of Westfield government in the past, it is a pleasure for me to say; Westfield is a great place by having leadership on Mayor Cook’s level. Please, don’t make the mistake of taking this election for granted. The Mayor’s opponent is very clever with how he misleads voters. Here’s one of many examples I could give; “Andy has doubled tax rates in his time.” FACT: no one pays “tax RATES”. Andy has brought our city tax BILLS down and our budget is in balance. Please go to the polls Tuesday, May 3. Mic Mead Westfield

Chamber functions to support Westfield Editor, As we celebrate our 30th year of existence, we at the Westfield Chamber of Commerce are proud of the role we play in the growth and cooperation that occurs among the city, schools, churches and various community organizations in Westfield. This type of cooperation is unique among communities in Indiana and is a source of pride for our more than 340 member businesses and organizations. Currently, the Chamber office is located at 130 Penn Street, where we lease space from the city of Westfield. We are a self-sustaining 501(c) 6 business organization. The Chamber exists to promote, and advocate for the economic well-being of the businesses and citizens of Westfield. We are excited about the growth that has occurred and encourage the con-

tinued growth of the community through projects such as the Grand Junction, Grand Park, US 31 upgrade, and the continued success of Westfield Washington Schools. We are also pleased to serve as a conduit for programs that are designed to enhance our community. As the May election nears, we as Chamber Board members encourage all political campaigns to address matters related to the continued success of Westfield. We ask all citizens to refrain from personal attacks on those who serve or those who wish to serve. May we all reflect the positive atmosphere and core values of the community we love. The Westfield Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee Tom Dooley, Board Vice President

Political mud slinging not the right campaign Editor, Campaign mud is typically slung when a candidate has nothing on which to hang her/his hat, and so, anyone and anything is fair game for slamming. In the most recent case, the target of the attack is Westfield Deputy Mayor, Bruce Hauk. It concerns us that this attack is directed at one who is just about as upstanding and full of integrity as a person can be. Bruce Hauk came to work for Westfield Public Works Department in 2002, and over the ensuing years, led the transformation of the department into an effective and efficiently run operation. Bruce brought his private sector business sense to bear on the local government operation of the department in its pursuit of serving the water, sewer, and street needs of a growing Westfield community. His integrity as a professional and as a dedicated public servant is above reproach. Anyone who knows Bruce knows this fact. Beyond its impact on Bruce the professional and public servant, this action was an attack on Bruce

Current in Westfield

the family man and person, for each is indistinguishable from the other. As the father of young children, Bruce is a positive and engaged influence on his children’s lives. His dedication to his family is without question to those who know and care about him. As an individual, Bruce is a shining example to all of us of the kind of person we should strive to be. He is a good friend, a dedicated and loving husband and father and a trustworthy community leader. Many in our community have come to trust his intelligent and reflective approach to City business and know that Westfield is in good hands, not only on a day-to-day basis, but from a longer-term perspective as well. Without a doubt, at the end of the day, Bruce can take home anything that he does at work and know that it will not have a negative influence on his young family. It is very concerning when those who seek voters’ support to lead our vibrant community take a path of trying to destroy it first. The Westfield Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee

Everyone is beautiful, even boys COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson A few weeks ago I went to have my hair cut, and the first thing my stylist said was, “Your last article got me in a ton of trouble!” She had a smile on her face, so I knew she was joking, but I could also see there was something more serious going on. Uh-oh, I thought. If I don’t play this right, I could walk out of here one eyebrow short and the words “Democrat hussy” shaved into my head. I tried to think back to any controversial columns of late, and came up completely blank. “Which one?” I asked, truly baffled. Stylist replied, “The column about how important it is to tell your children they’re beautiful.” As we walked back to her room, I breathed a sigh of relief. That was the article about my daughter who has so much self-confidence it’s staggering, even though she is usually in need of a hot shower and a wardrobe adjustment. My husband and I believe her high self-esteem is due to our telling her she is beautiful, even when she’s clearly at that awkward tween phase. But to my recollection, I hadn’t said anything offensive about politics, religion, or even homeschooling. Yay! I would not become the victim of an errant razor today! Still puzzled as to the cause of her distress though, I asked Stylist to explain. Apparently her son had been home from col-

lege and read my article. He became truly upset when he realized that mom had never called him beautiful.

He became truly upset when he realized that mom had never called him beautiful. “Are you serious?” I asked. “He’s a guy!” Stylist was dead serious, and went on to explain that though she had told him he was good-looking and handsome, she’d technically never called him “beautiful.” “So you’d better start saying that to your boys too,” she warned. “Or you’ll end up with an adult son who feels neglected.” I thought about her advice. We tell our girls they are beautiful because that’s what seems appropriate. Females are beautiful, males are handsome, bunnies are adorable. That’s the way it is. Wouldn’t our boys think it weird if I suddenly blurted out, “Hey, Geoffrey, you’re beautiful!” Of course they would, they’re boys. With only one way to find out, though, I decided to test my theory. That night, as I tucked in my 9-yearold, I added, “Andrew, you are beautiful.” To my complete and utter surprise, his eyes lit up,

a grin spread across his face, and a fist shot into the air. “Yah!” he yelled, clearly delighted. Huh?! The next morning, I tried out the same gig with my 12-year old son, anticipating a more “Stop! You’re embarrassing me, Mom!” reaction. No dice. He blushed slightly, smiled just a bit, and accepted the compliment without blowing me off. And then he actually thanked me! What the devil was happening? Could Stylist have stumbled upon a new way to build selfconfidence in young men? I decided to continue the experiment and tell my two sons they are beautiful whenever I could. And guess what? Each and every time I got the same reaction: a look of pure joy and a subtle, yet definite, puffing out of the chest. So we’ve started a “You’re beautiful” campaign in our house, and are attempting to spread the love. Andrew even belted it out to his teacher during class yesterday. The moral of the story is that even boys need to feel they are beautiful, and that just by telling them so, you can give a major boost to their self-confidence. So peace out, my Hoosier friend. You’re beautiful too! Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at danielle@ currentincarmel.com.

the city is inherently the same as the title city manager. “The intent and job description chief administrative office and city manager are one in the same,” said Cameron. “This is not a political play; it’s against the law.” Mayor Andy Cook said that while Hauk had volunteered for his campaign it was never during work hours, using city resources and Hauk was extremely careful about it. “For a political candidate to attack somebody with the integrity like Bruce Hauk is an all time low…I’m shocked and disappointed that a fellow Republican would stoop to these desperation tactics,” said Cook. “Races in Hamilton County always have maintained integrity, and I think that is what has helped make Hamilton County what it is today, and this campaign will continue to operate under those high ideals and ethics.” Cameron said he was “hesitant” to file the complaint but decided it was the right decision after he obtained the picture of Hauk. “It’s an incredibly tough process to step up and get involved and run against and incumbent,” Cameron said. “We need to recapture local ethical government.” er

By Margaret Sutherlin Current in Westfield Primary mayoral candidate Russell Cameron filed a formal complaint last Monday, with the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s office against Deputy Mayor of Westfield Bruce Hauk citing campaign violations for Mayor Andy Cook and two city council candidates. The complaint was forwarded by the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office to the Indiana State Police for investigation. Cameron cited a state law prohibiting city managers from participating in campaigning for any city legislative body. Cameron said it was only recently he learned Hauk was involved in the campaigns through a third party, and said that he had not himself witnessed Hauk campaigning for Cook, but had noticed a picture online where Hauk was wearing a Cook campaign shirt. It was after seeing the picture Cameron filed the complaint. The state law in question specifically addresses the title city manager however. Hauk’s title with the city then offers an important question for investigators, as Hauk’s title in Westfield is as deputy mayor, and the law cited by Cameron references the position as city manager. Cameron said the title chief administrative officer for

Hamilton County hospitality outshines Chicago’s COMMENTARY By Ken Kingshill While in Chicago over Spring Break we made a quick trip to Costco. Aside from realizing that not all Costco stores have the same internal layout, I was reminded that we were not in Kansas anymore. I was only there to pick up one item (well, twelve units of the same item) and so when it came time to check out I scanned the checkout lanes to find the shortest one. I always look for the least number of transactions ahead of me, not necessarily people with the least amount of products in their carts. The way I figure it, it’s the actual financial transaction that takes the most amount of time during checkout, not the scanning of merchandise. Anyway, it quickly became apparent that there was a transaction malfunction going on at the head of the line, so I quietly slipped into the adjacent lane. My new lane was proceeding at a much less deliberate pace. As the three customers ahead of me completed their transactions, I couldn’t help but notice the growing commotion going on immediately behind me. The cause of the brouhaha was a customer who was unfamiliar with Costco’s payment policy. Horror of horrors: she was trying to pay with a credit card. This blatant breach of wholesale warehouse etiquette had shut down the operation of the queue

Local artist installs new public art Current in Westfield Local artist Steve Wooldridge installed his sculpture “Dragonfly” early Wednesday morning in the roundabout at 151st and Carey Road. Wooldridge studied art at the Dayton Art Institute in Dayton, Ohio and at the Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis. His sculptures are typically metal.

while the offending customer tried to figure out how to produce cash from her credit card. The two hapless members immediately behind the offender already had loaded their merchandise onto the conveyer belt and were in no position to jump lines as I had so wisely done just moments before. Fuming, the first victim began complaining in a loud Chicago voice about her predicament and declaring that her time was much too valuable to be spent waiting for the offender and the cashier to figure out what to do. I couldn’t help but wonder how valuable her time truly was, given the spandex she was wearing. As I was breezing through my transaction, I couldn’t resist thinking that this scene would have played out very differently in Indianapolis. A good Hamilton County Hoosier would have taken the situation in stride. Although she would have thought the nasty thoughts, she probably wouldn’t have said a word.

146th Street bridge In addition to flowers and spring sunshine in Indiana, so come orange traffic cones and the first lane closures of the Major Moves project in Hamilton County. The first phase of the project announced was the expansion of the 146th Street bridge and the interchange at U.S. 31 and S.R. 32. The expansion and reconstruction of U.S. 31 in the county will take nearly seven years to finish, turning the highway into a limited access road to improve congestion, traffic flow and safety and allow for a more direct route on the highway that eventually connects to South Bend. As the 146th Street bridge gets going, residents and businesses in Carmel and Westfield will have to deal with lane closures and delays through one of the main arteries in the area. Will Wingfield of the Indiana Department of Transportation said construction is anticipated to be over by the holidays of 2011, and that in the meantime shoppers and residents could receive updates online or sign up for the Major Moves newsletter. The bridge expansion is the first part of the Major Moves project to help manage traffic flow during future interchange construction on U.S. 31. “We want drivers to be safe for the benefit of other motorists and also highway workers,” Wingfield said. “It’s not uncommon to get a lot of rear-end accidents in this kind of construction, so we want people to be safe.”

www.youarecurrent.com

The construction will happen in two phases: first on the north side of the bridge, then the south. Lane restrictions will close the north side of the bridge first, reducing lanes to one way each direction with adjusted turn lanes for entry to Clay Terrace and Village Park Plaza. Additionally underneath the bridge there are also many nightly lane closures, so drivers are urged to be especially alert in the area and obey any reduced speed limits. Barbara Schick, general manager of Clay Terrace, said the shopping center had several events planned to encourage people to come to the mall, and said checking the Twitter and Facebook pages for updates would be a good way for customers to find out about any changes at the mall. “Clay Terrace is working closely with our retailers to ensure our customers have a great experience at our center,” Schick said. “Starting with Mom’s Nite Out in May, we have a summer event schedule full of great events, in addition to the diverse retailer mix that already offers a great shopping experience.” It’s not all bad, however, as Clay Terrace will have two turn lanes from the bridge to the center at the end of the project, and the expansion is anticipated to help move traffic through the area much more easily, especially during U.S. 31 construction.

U.S. 31 and S.R. 38 interchange With the contract for the interchange recently announced, this first step of the U.S. 31 project is expected to be well underway by summer. Milestone Contractors will lead the nearly two-year project: The goal is to have the project completed by the end of 2012. “The project is a Before little unique in that we had to design around the McCormick Park at the northeast corner of the interchange,” Wingfield said. “Parks are protected property, and we focused on a design that would minimize the impact.” As a result, the ramp system appears folded to avoid disrupting the protected land. During the construction process, U.S. 31 will be restricted, and travelers should anticipate detours around S.R. 38 and lane closures at various phases. Traffic will shift entirely off one side of U.S. 31, crossing the median to clear one direction of the highway for the construction of one of the two bridges. Once one bridge is complete, traffic will cross over to the other side of U.S. 31 to allow for the other part of the bridge to be built.

In addition to supporting improvements to parks and trails and infrastructure around the city, he helped design and support the WeCan, something Smith said was probably one of the most valuable resources for the city and citizens to keep open lines of communication. Both Ake and Smith are endorsed by Mayor Andy Cook. Cindy Spoljaric, like Ake and Smith, is also very conscious of the growth and potential in Westfield. Spoljaric said that the primary focus for her campaign, and decision to run, was to encourage responsible growth and quality development in Westfield. “I care about and know a lot about this community,” said Spoljaric. “I heard some concerns while working on the comprehensive plan, and my background can help address the concerns and challenges associated with planning and growth. We need to look at the private side and public side and figure out actual costs of how much we are actually spending on some of these projects.” Establishing a single methodology to evaluate developments and fiscal decisions, finding a transparent way of evaluating expenses in a fiscal impact study, and encouraging the highest possible quality in developments in the city were all her priorities.

The hyphen makes a difference GRAMMAR LESSON By Brandie Bohney The UPS Store, in an effort to connect basketball fans to its printing services, instituted “print madness.” The campaign, which ends Friday, is marked by a deal on color prints. There’s only one problem: The deal is vague. I don’t mean vague in the sense that they don’t tell you anything (“Come in, and we’ll give you a deal. Trust us …”). But what they do tell you in the commercial is nearly as vague as nothing: “Four color prints for a buck.” OK, OK. I realize you’re looking at that, thinking, “What’s wrong with her? That’s completely logical and clear.” And it is, as written. Unfortunately for the UPS Store, until the last two weeks of the campaign, the deal wasn’t written out. It was only spoken. So it was impossible, at least when the ads first aired, to know whether the deal was four color prints for a buck (25 cents each) or four-color prints for a buck (prints with four colors for $1 each). You see, when two or more words work together as a single adjective directly preceding the noun they modify, they need to be hyphenated: much-needed discipline, fast-paced game, bluehaired grannies. The hyphen serves to indicate that the words are working together rather than separately. Take fast-paced game as an example. Without the hyphen, fast and paced would be equals, each modifying game. But their independent meanings are significantly different. Add-

ing the hyphen forces them to work together. The grand exception to the hyphenating rule is with adverbs ending in –ly. Those don’t get hyphens: strangely worded text, massively muscled monster, candidly honest answers. The UPS Store commercial is a classic example of how a simple punctuation mark can significantly alter the meaning of a sentence. Each time my husband and I saw the commercial in question, we’d chuckle at the company for not realizing the ambiguous nature of the wording. And then, two or three weeks after we’d seen the ad for the first time, the spoken portion of the commercial was followed quickly by a screen noting the correct spelling for the promotion: “Four color prints for $1.” And suddenly, the humor was gone. In its place, clarity. And the commercial was back to being only mildly humorous for reasons intended by the marketing team for the UPS Store. If you’d like to learn more about writing with clarity and precision, come to Grammar Therapy this Thursday night at Carmel Lutheran Church, room 101A. We’ll even painlessly remove your dangling modifiers without sedation. Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher.

Family fun with ‘Fools’

By Brandie Bohney Current in Westfield Ryan Shelton got started in theater as a college student, and a few experiences onstage at The Belfry got him hooked. A fifth-grade teacher at Noblesville Intermediate School, Shelton has also done considerable work with Stone Soup Children’s Theatre programs and also has assisted in directing several shows. When it came time for his directorial debut at The Belfry, Shelton chose a comedy with a manageable cast size: Neil Simon’s “Fools.” He notes that an outstanding cast and crew have made the experience a very good one. “These actors are really good,” he said. “They want to show off this work, and we know people will enjoy it.” The play itself is fun, Shelton said. “Fools” is a light-hearted romantic comedy. Shelton explains that the play is not a typical Neil Simon script. “This is a little different for Neil Simon,” he said. “The characters believe they are fools. They believe they are cursed and they’re stupid.” A teacher comes to the village and decides to try to break the curse, a decision that leads to a windfall of strange and hilarious circumstances. And while the plot includes a love story, the play isn’t just for grown-ups. Shelton notes that children as young as eight or nine will enjoy the

run for three weekends on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and matinee shows will be held on April 24 and May 1 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 each for adults, and $12 each for children 12 and under. Reservations are strongly recommended: www.thebelfrytheatre.com/reservations/ or 773-1085.

Easy as A, B, sea bass COOKING By Clint Smith The headliner of this dish is the fish, of course, but our two accompanying components are far from perfunctory. This trio – delicate sea bass, spicy arugula and beet vinaigrette – although ostensibly simple, produces an intriguingly complicated flavor combination. When cooking in a sauté pan, it’s a common urge for novice cooks to fidget with the fish. But please (even if using Teflon) resist this impulse, particularly during the initial stage of the cooking process. Sear your sea bass in an oven-safe sauté pan (read: no rubber handles), something you can

slip into the oven to finish the fish. To check doneness, press the sides or top of the fish; if the flesh feels firm and gives some resistance, you’re good to go. Sea bass has a flaky texture, and the skin crisps up to a briny crunch, while the arugula (also known as “rocket”) acts as a peppery response to the sweet-and-sour sauce. With all three sharing the stage, the finished product is a scene-stealer. Clint Smith is an honors graduate of The Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago, Le Cordon Bleu, and is currently a culinary arts instructor at Central Nine Career Center in Greenwood. To read more about techniques and recipes, visit www.cookingwithclint.com.

Pan-seared sea bass with wilted arugula Serves two Ingredients • 2 medium, skin-on sea bass steaks (or one large, cut in half) • As needed, canola oil

• 1/2 shallot, thin slice • 1/4 tbsp. unsalted butter • 7 – 8 oz. fresh arugula

• 1/4 cup white wine • To taste, kosher salt and cracked black pepper Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On range, heat sauté pan to medium-high; add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of sea bass. Once oil is hot, place fish in pan skin-side down. Tilt pan so that the oil surrounds the fish; sear for several minutes. Using an offset spatula or tongs, flip fish. Cook for a few moments before placing in 350-degree F oven. Cook through for 5 – 7 minutes.

2. Remove fish from oven and reserve, covered, on a plate. Return sauté pan to medium heat; add butter, and allow to melt before sautéing shallots, cooking until translucent. Pour in white wine and reduce. Add in arugula – cook until just wilted. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Place sea bass on top of arugula, and serve with beet vinaigrette.

Rejuvenate

R1

April 12, 2011

Designing for the seasons of Indiana living By Sue Faulstich Current Publishing Living in Indiana, we Hoosiers have a clear understanding of crazy weather.  We tolerate those long, brutal winter months because we know that just around the corner is the annual season of rejuvenation of mind, body and spirit; and for some, rejuvenation of our living spaces.  We all know that the arrival of spring is in the hands of Mother Nature, but she can’t prevent you from reinvigorating the interior of your home and starting your spring season off on a positive note. After the spring cleaning is done, the windows are washed, the dust is gone, and the winter themed accessories are put back into storage it is time to start thinking about how you can get your home’s interior to match your refreshed attitude.  Springtime, when it finally arrives, lends itself to things like lightening up, adding color, and simplifying spaces in your home.  Clear the way... Getting organized and prepared is a good way to start any project.  When a space is clutter free it is easier to focus on ways to usher in a new look.  A fresh, new season brings a fresh, new attitude for getting projects accomplished.  Whatever the scope of your springtime interior refresher, let it begin with a clean palette.   

Color is a springtime essential... One of the most popular ways of refreshing an interior space is to change the color scheme.  With each spring season a new collection of bright colors is showcased.  Whether your style is traditional, transitional, or ultra modern, a change of color for your living space will easily make that long winter a distant memory.  Traditional decor will be revived with a new set of accent colors.  Heavily saturated, bright

www.youarecurrent.com

color can be used in a way which complements the understated, classic elements of traditional design. If a more transitional or modern style is what you enjoy in your home, you have the perfect opportunity to explore more whimsy in the color combinations you select.  With color, any style of home decor can be refreshed with an energized and creative notion.    But don’t forget about white... Just like adding color to a fresh, new look, the use of white as either a background or an accent is equally important this time of year.  It is no coincidence that every time spring rolls around white decorative accessory items are prominently displayed in stores and catalogs.  Whatever the design craze or color trend for any given spring season, it is most likely going to be complimented by white.  Other ways to incorporate white into your design scheme is by simply replacing your old lamp shades and repainting trim.  Putting a new, white shade on your existing lamps will brighten your space as well as give you a refreshing visual.  A fresh coat of white paint on wood trim is a way to give a home a clean, fresh appearance.        April showers bring May flowers... You have already patiently waited for spring.  Bring fresh flower bouquets into your home early and often.  The idea of bringing nature into your home is not a new idea.  In the way of trees and decorative greenery this has been a common element in interior design.  Springtime provides the opportunity to include floral patterns and arrangements in the mix.  Fresh floral arrangements can lift spirits as well as provide visual charm.  The bold floral prints introduced for this new season are another way of displaying this element of nature.  Sprinkling a few botanical patterns into your design scheme provides a breath of fresh air to a space. A big change can be achieved with small details such as accent pillows, throw rugs or even picture frames.  Simply a good idea... Spring is all about simplicity.  This is the time of year to think big without acting on a grand scale.  Utilize bright colors, dramatic accents and large, yet uncomplicated accessories and patterns.  And remember—simple does not have to be boring.

Spring rejuvenation, in every part of your life,

Refresh and rejuvenate with spring green interiors

is worth your time and effort. In this beautiful time of the year take a cue from Mother Nature, the ultimate diva of design and renewal, and let the brand new season compliment your interior design.  Current Publishing What would spring be without delightful shades of green? The color green is so full of energy. Not only does green symbolize life on earth, but it represents richness, growth, peace, healing and balance. If you love white and neutral colored interiors, green is a great contrasting color choice that will bring color and vibrant expression into a room. Some complementary colors that work well with varying shades of green are yellow, brown, beige, taupe and blue.   Green adds freshness to the room that can be rejuvenating for one’s spirit and mind. Try mixing some green into your interior design with plush pillows, floral arrangements, wall color and even simple decor items like candles. -www.marciamooredesign.com

Detox your diet this spring Current Publishing Spring is the ideal time to implement new changes in your diet. Our tastes naturally shift from heavy meals to lighter foods, and our bodies look forward to the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables that the new season brings. There are many things you can do to improve your diet and add more detoxing food into your life. Avoid ‘bad’ fats: Avoid trans fats and saturated fats and choose hearthealthy cold-pressed vegetable oils such as olive, hempseeds or flaxseed oils. Eat what’s in season: Now that the growing season is near, it’s the best time of all to eat more locally. Seasonal cooking is one of the best ways to eat fruits and vegetables at their peak freshness, which makes them not only more delicious, but also more nutritious. Eat more raw food: Raw food brings you vitamins, minerals and precious enzymes that could otherwise be destroyed by cooking. With nice weather ahead, our bodies are naturally more drawn to lighter meals such as fresh, crisp salads. Eating more raw fruits and vegetables also is a great way to detox naturally. Discover tender greens: Spring brings new bright green shoots. It’s the ideal time to get familiar with new delicious and alkalizing greens. Dark, leafy greens have a milder flavor when they are young. So it’s the ideal time to add baby spinach and other young field greens for a mineral-rich liver-cleansing diet. Bring in some dandelion: Dandelion is one of the best detox foods. It naturally cleanses the liver and supports all the organs involved in natural detoxification.  Spring is definitely dandelion season, when leaves are tender and juicy, without the bitterness that summer can bring. -www.lifewithnature.com

Rejuvenate that old grill with a few quick fixes Current Publishing Don’t replace your old grill just yet. Before you make a big purchase on a new one, first try a little cleaning and some new parts to squeeze another year or two of service out of your grill. In most cases, grill repairs are cheap and easy, and salvaging your existing grill can be up to 90 percent less expensive than buying a new one. Try this: A little cleaning can go a long way. Perhaps, the only thing your grill needs is cleaning off that buildup of black, greasy crud left by a summer’s worth grilled goodies. Strip the grill to its shell, and clean with warm, soapy water and rinse with the hose. Clean the burners and grates, making certain they are dry before reinstalling. Inspect the grill. In some instances, it might just be a single burner, but in other situations where rust has eaten through much of the interior components, you could be looking at burners, manifold, igniters, barriers and more. In that case, replacement parts might cost more than a new grill. Light the grill and see how the flame burns. When a gas grill is working properly, the flame is evenly distributed through the burners and the flame is blue with yellow tips. The greatest point of failure in a gas grill is the burner, which typically lasts about three years with low-end grills. It can be replaced for as little as $20.

Current in Westfield

Insects such as spiders love hid in the venturi tubes which connect the control valve to the burner and can their nests can block the mix of fuel and air that provides a flame. The best solution is to wrap the venturi tubes with an aluminum screen that will not block the airflow but will keep the critters out. Simple replacements are usually worth the money. Here’s how much you might be paying for some commonly replaced parts: fuel hose and regulator, $19$23; control valve, $19-$20; burner with venturi tube, $20-$25; igniter kit, $12-$20; high-heat paint, $7-$9.

A monthly guide to keeping your lawn green Current Publishing

April Seed your lawn if you haven’t done so already. Begin mowing as soon as your lawn greens up and starts growing. Mow at 3 inches in height through fall when needed, making sure to remove no more than a third of the leaf blade. If crabgrass has been a problem in the past, apply a crabgrass-preventer herbicide with little or no nitrogen prior to the initiation of weed seed germination. May Aerate and/or power-rake to help alleviate compaction and thatch. A power raking machine removes the dead debris and crust that builds up on a lawn over winter and is a gentler way to remove thatch without causing significant damage that dethatching can cause. In mid-May, apply 3/4 to 1 pound of a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer for every 1,000 square feet, but not if fertilizer was applied with a preventive herbicide in April. Spotspray flowering dandelions with a broadleaf herbicide, although it would be more efficient with broadleaf herbicide applications in October. Watch for grub activity. Use Dylox or Carbaryl if needed. Organic option: In late-May, apply a wellbalanced organic lawn food, such as manurebased Espomas. Add second application of Milky Spore grub control.

20 | April 12, 2011

June Water as needed, continuing through August. Water thoroughly, and then don’t water again until the first signs of drought stress are seen. Habig’s suggests 1 inch of water per week, preferably all at once, or 2 inches if drought occurs. Watch for red thread and dollar spot in slowgrowing lawns. If the outbreak is severe, apply 1/2 to 3/4 pounds of a nitrogen product per 1,000 square feet. If an unattractive amount of crabgrass develops, apply a post-emergence herbicide, but not if temperatures are above 80 degrees or if the turf is drought-stressed. July Water only as needed when the lawn first shows signs of water stress -- bluish-gray color of the grass and/or depressed footprints that remain visible after walking across the lawn. Treat with a 3/4 pound of a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer per 1,000 square feet, but only on watered lawns or during summers with above average rainfall. Check for grubs. If your lawn has a history of white grub damage, consider a persistent insecticide like Merit in early July. Organic option: Mid- to late July, do a second application of a balanced organic lawn food and water to activate. August Re-seed thin or bare areas starting in the middle of August. Optimum time is Aug. 15 to

Current in Westfield

Sept. 15 in Central Indiana. Continue scouting for white grubs. If you find any, or your lawn has a history of white grub damage, apply an insecticide like Dylox or Carbaryl in early August. September Fertilize with 1 pound of nitrogen product per 1,000 square feet. Aerate and/or power-rake if needed, and only when grass is growing vigorously. If grub damage is found, increase watering and apply the insecticide Dylox. Organic option: Apply Milky Spore grub control and corn gluten. October Remove leaves and other debris from lawn as they fall through November. Leaves can be mulched into the turf while mowing if the leaf fall is not heavy. Control dandelions and other broadleaf weeds as long as temps stay about 60 degrees. Spot sprays or blanket applications of broadleaf herbicides containing 2,4-D, dicamba and MCPP are most effective. November Apply 1 to 11/4 pounds of a fast-release nitrogen product, such as urea, after the final mowing in early November while the grass is still green. Apply fall and spring root builder for winter hardiness and density. - Purdue University Department of Agronomy

Boone remembers great artist, family By Michael Feinstein For Current in Westfield The art of popular singing is a tradition that is handed down from one generation to the next. Every singer is influenced by those who have come before them, whether they know it or not. It is truly an oral tradition and so much of what makes an artist unique and great simply cannot be taught. Bing Crosby was influenced by Al Jolson, Sinatra by Crosby, Diahann Carroll by Ethel Waters, Patti Austin by Dinah Washington, and so it goes. The April 15 Palladium concert is performed by the daughter-in-law of the subject to whom she is paying tribute. The combination and connection is most fitting. Debby is married to Rosemary’s son, Gabriel, and therefore knew Rosemary in an intimate way very few shared. Rosemary Clooney loved Debby Boone as an artist, a person and as a mother and was deeply proud of their relationship. That love grew in tandem with Debby’s own growth and transformation from that of a famous pop artist to a consummate performer of “standards,” and certainly her time spent watching and sharing with Rosemary had a great impact on that evolution. Debby’s whole family is musical, and her talent was borne out of exposure to music that started in womb. Perhaps it was inevitable that she would become a singer, but she always carried a unique sensibility that blessed her with a gorgeous natural tone plus flawless pitch any

singer would envy. Rosemary possessed these same attributes and sang as naturally as any singer ever could. Her backstage preparation the moment before she performed was simple: She would loudly give out with a single pitch to test her voice, matter-of-factly mutter “it’s there” and then stroll on stage with confidence and security in her gift. The other like-minded quality evident in both Rosemary and Debby is their shared sense of humor, not only in music, but in life. That humor creates an aliveness in their singing that gives the listener a heightened feeling of joy and appreciation. Upon her passing in 2002 Rosemary bequeathed all her arrangements and orchestrations to Debby. To understand the significance of this, consider that this music represented the culmination of a life’s work and symbolizes as well the passing of the torch, for Rosemary knew that Debby could do justice to her musical legacy. “Charts” like these are valuable and to be treasured, but they only have value if they are used and shared. What Debby continues to share is a flame of musical history that she simultaneously conjures and creates anew. Michael Feinstein is the artistic director at the Center for the Performing Arts, located in Carmel. For more information visit www. thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

Making Nutter Butter cookie balls COMMENTARY By Ashley Phipps I love baking. I love trying new recipes, and I also love creating my own concoctions. I’ll be honest, sometimes they don’t turn out as planned, but most of the time I discover a new, wonderful recipe to add to my growing collection. So, having been inspired by another yummy treat I recently had made, I decided to use Nutter Butter cookies to make a yummy peanut butter and chocolate cookie ball! Yum. If you like Nutter Butter cookies and chocolate, you will love these super simple treats that can be made using only three ingredients! Yes. I said you only need three ingredients! Here’s how to make Nutter Butter Cookie Balls:

Ingredients: • 1 package Nutter Butter cookies • 1 8 oz. block of cream cheese • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips Instructions: 1. Using a food processor or a blender, crush all the cookies until finely ground. 2. Place the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese in a stand mixer. (You can use a hand mixer or mix this together with your hands,

but it will take a bit more time). 3. Mix for several minutes until well-blended. 4. Form mixture into small balls and place on wax paper. 5. Place the cookie balls in the fridge or freezer until chilled. 6. Melt the chocolate chips in a double broiler on the stove or in the microwave for 15-30 second intervals at 50 percent power. Be very careful not to overheat the chocolate. You can add a little bit of vegetable oil to the chocolate if you are melting it in the microwave to help prevent it chocolate from drying out. 7. Dip the cookie balls into the melted chocolate.

8. Using a fork, remove the chocolate covered cookie ball from the chocolate. 9. Tap off the excess chocolate. 10. Let the chocolate covered cookie balls sit on wax paper or foil until set.

Happy baking! You can find this and other simple, fun craft, food and décor ideas at www.simplydesigning. blogspot.com and www.facebook.com/simplydesigning and at Twitter @SimplyDesigning.

Men’s Hair Musts

• Hair • Skin • Nails • Massage

You don’t need to have a ‘do like Troy Polamalu to pay attention to your hair. Whether you like your hair short, like a military cut, or longer, remember its important to follow these basic steps. 1. Cleanse. Use a shampoo for your hair and scalp needs. Our stylists’ or barber can recommend a moisturizing or thickening formula for your hair type. 2. Moisturize. Even if your hair is short, a light conditioner can do you good. 3. Use a little product. You don’t need to resemble grease lightning, but use a little gel or spray to keep your hair in place. 4. Get regular trims. For those of you who like the high and tight, this is a no-brainer. But even for a longer look, get your hair trimmed regularly to keep the dead ends off and to avoid looking like a mountain man.

Pay attention; this is important COMMENTARY By David Cain We live in a world of distractions. Everyone is interrupting. Even as I write this, I’m getting instant messages; they bounce up and down at the bottom of the screen, begging me to give in and read. Baiting me to stop what I’m doing and kill any momentum I have. This morning I estimated there is an additional 25 minutes associated with my kids getting out the door for school because of their cell phones. They both have iPhones and play games or music as they get ready for school. At three and five years old, they are definitely digital natives. Something I thought I’d never say to girls barely as tall as my knees: “Girls, put down your cell phones!” We even have a name for these distractions; we call it multitasking. I met a woman at a conference who worked for a company that developed pole wraps. Not a product you easily forget, they develop padding for poles – any type of poles including light poles, sign poles, utility poles. Evidently distracted people, usually texting or answering emails, walk into poles every day in congested cities. There are evidently a lot of injuries at-

tributed to distracted walking or multitasking. Now, this company sells more than pole wraps, but this is a new product for congested municipalities. Yesterday, I passed a semi-truck only to notice the big-rig driver with a phone on top of the steering wheel and both hands busy on the touch screen. A scary visual that will make you accelerate and pass them quickly. Distractions are everywhere. I was asked recently to judge a video submission contest focusing on texting and driving. You can participate here: http:// www.kurtsnyder.com/film-contest-form. It’s got me thinking about the obvious cost of distractions. Even in a meeting room, distractions take their toll on the bottom line. In a vehicle, distracted driving has been compared to driving under the influence. Both have an impact on all of us. And it’s still my opinion that it’s not technology’s fault.

Current Publishing Don’t file electronically – The IRS encourages electronic filing, and soon this may be required for all tax returns. Until then, however, you should file the old fashioned way if you’re worried about a potential audit. Why? Paper filing means it’s more work for the IRS to access all the information in your return. Your duty as a taxpayer is to be truthful and accurate, but you don’t have to make it easy for the IRS. Disclose just enough - You’d be surprised how many professionals and amateurs alike try to submit too much information. True, if your return is complex, you may need to add explanations or disclosures in footnotes. Be concise, truthful and accurate, but don’t provide copies of sales agreements, settlement agreements, bank statements, etc., unless you are later asked to by the IRS. Pay and move on - If you take reasonable tax positions, and complete your return accurately, checking your math, why should you pay a bill if the IRS sends you one? The answer is more practical than principled. It usually doesn’t pay to fight with the IRS, so if the tax bill is small, don’t get into the system and risk bigger problems for a few dollars. Just pay it and move on. Don’t ask for your money back - If you are entitled to a refund, consider applying it to your next year’s tax payments, rather than asking for the refund in cash. You’ll have a lower profile if you file a return applying a whopping refund to estimated tax payments for the current or future years. This logic applies to both initial returns and to amended ones. -www.forbes.com

Perfect God is no contradiction SPIRITUALITY By Bob Walters Some people are just not that into God because God seems to harbor so many contradictions. Is He the Old Testament’s good and mighty God of Creation? The exasperated God of the Great Flood? The unfair God who delivered Israel out of Egypt, made the Jews wander 40 years in the desert and ultimately denied His servant Moses entry into the Promised Land? The warlike God Who vanquished Israel’s unsuspecting foes from Canaan, but then banished disobedient Israel to Babylon? The abiding God of Psalms 51 and 91 who delivers us from all trouble? Or the absent God of Psalm 88, who leaves us despairing in the pit? In the New Testament, utterly humble baby Jesus grows into a friendly, gentle man who works miracles, picks fishermen and tax collectors for Apostles, ransacks the Temple, heals the lame, preaches never-before-heard truths and leaves cryptic but indisputable proof that He is Christ, the Son of God, the fully human and fully divine Second Person of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit Trinity. This glorious, eternal, innocent King of Kings is brutally murdered on the Cross – dead – then resurrected to life. These evident contradictions lead some people to reject God, the Bible, or religion, or to diminish Jesus’ mission with theologically suicidal rules of engagement; e.g., “Don’t worry about Jesus or

Hell. God saves all. Everyone goes to Heaven.” Theologians through the ages have worked exhaustively on that idea, known by the Greek term “apocatastasis.” It means “everyone is restored,” suggesting, bottom line, Christ’s work on the Cross was unnecessary because death and sin didn’t really need to be defeated. Now there’s a contradiction. God does nothing unnecessarily, and underestimating Jesus’ sacrifice is a human death sentence. So here’s the real deal. There is one unwavering, patient, faithful, good, loving and eternal God. He is Perfect, and God’s idea of “perfect” is the Bible’s point. Our fallen, self-interested, worldly, human idea of “perfect” is not. We pine for our “perfect.” Scripture reveals time and again, God insists on His. The Bible’s overarching proposition is this: Which is better? God giving sinful man the Law to attain righteousness, or God giving sinful man Jesus Christ whose righteousness removes our sins? The Bible, you see, reveals a New Covenant, not contradictions. It takes work to understand the Bible, faith to understand Jesus, and belief to go to Heaven. The contradictions reside in us, not God. Bob Walters (www.believerbob. blogspot.com, email rlwcom@aol. com), a sinner, is humbly thankful for God’s love and securely trusts the Bible’s truth. Amen.

Make a statement in your flowerbeds LANDSCAPING By Mark Skipper There are some unique and exciting plants this year that I am crazy about. Unloading these new plants at our garden center this week made me think my wife will shoot me if I don’t bring some of them home to plant. The following plants can add a “wow” statement to your landscaping beds. Bloomerang lilac: This new re-blooming lilac rocks the horticultural world and keeps coming back for more! You know how much you love the lilac fragrance and color in spring. Now you can enjoy the show throughout much of the summer. This repeat bloomer sports deep purple flower clusters that fade to pink. A magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds! Now you can enjoy your lilac beyond two weeks in the spring! Features … • Highly fragrant flowers that burst forth in spring and then again in mid-summer and continue right up unit frost • Compact, full-growth habit and small leaves that make the perfect shrub for smaller gardens • Mildew resistance • Stunning purple blooms

Tomato Soup-cone flower: This is the brightest red coneflower to date with its long-lasting 3/5” flowers. The strong, multibranched stems of this vigorous new red enchinacea make if the perfect addition to any cut flower arrangement. Coneflowers are a rugged species that thrive in sunny location in the flower garden where they like hot, dry conditions. Water this perennial during the first year of establishment to ensure success. Features … • Plants that quickly grow to produce large 30” mounds topped with numerous 3.5” vibrant red flowers • Strong spicy fragrance • Butterfly magnets with their large, fragrant flowers • The perfect companion to long-blooming KnockOut roses, drought-proof sedums, reblooming daylilies and ornamental grasses

Vanilla strawberry hydrangea: Like the original “endless summer” hydrangea, this relative of the classic PeeGee hydrangea produces stunning blooms starting in midsummer on both new and old stems. The enormous clusters of flowers begin creamy white but turn soft pink two weeks later and then become strawberry red as they mature, retaining that shade for about 3-4 weeks. Features … • New flower heads that continue opening into late summer • Blooms from June to first frost • Showy triple-color bloom progression • Blooms borne on red stems making a contrast against the green leaves If you are the gardener who likes to be “different,” look at these exciting new plants this year! You will not be disappointed. Mark Skipper is the president of Mustard Seed Landscapes & Garden Center and Weddings at the Metsker Plantation in Noblesville.

Grout: Digging out the facts REMODELING By David Decker Every homeowner with any tile flooring in the house at some point will deal with a grout issue, and it’s not always easy to know when grout needs to be replaced, sealed or maybe just cleaned. Reader Jennifer A., who recently moved into a 20-year-old house, eventually wants to replace upstairs bathroom carpet with tile, but that project is on hold because she had no luck getting the facts from a contractor she hired to replace the kitchen tile when she moved in. She asked, “Is it always necessary to seal tile and/or grout? My contractor who installed the new kitchen tile said he doesn’t do that kind of work. I called the grout maker and couldn’t get a straight answer. My friend had a contractor who tiled her kitchen and then sealed it all, saying some contractors are afraid their sealant will fog over the surface. Our new kitchen floor is top grade porcelain tile with ultrapremium grout. I don’t know whether to seal it or not. Can you help me?” She provided me with some specifics on what materials were involved, and my answer to her was that sealing depends on the type of grout used. Epoxy and urethane grouts do not need to be sealed. She used high-end sanded grout, which is the same one we offer. It does not need to be sealed initially because of its DropEffect (reduces surface absorption) technology proper-

ties. These properties will wear off eventually, and the grout will need to be sealed. To determine if the grout is still sealed, put a couple drops of water on the grout lines. If the water beads up, your grout is still good. If the water beads soak in, it’s time to reseal. Porcelain and ceramic tile do not need to be sealed. There are many types of grout, sealers, tiles and installation methods. This makes for endless combinations of maintenance concerns, and I think sometimes the best, first thing to know is a flooring expert who can advise you on your flooring choices.

The MGB COMMENTARY By Shawn Miller The MGB was a two-seat roadster launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA and manufactured until 1980 – originally by the British Motor Corporation and later by its successors. A coupe (the hatchbacked GT) version, with 2+2 seating, was introduced in 1965. The MGB featured a four-cylinder, and later, a derivative model, the MGC, featured a six-cylinder engine. Combined production volume of MGB and MGC was 523,836 cars, and the MGB was a relatively modern design at the time of its introduction. It utilized a monocoque structure that reduced weight and manufacturing costs as well as adding chassis strength. This was a considerable improvement in comparison to that of the traditional body on frame construction used on the earlier MGA and T Type models as well to the large number of cars produced, and a general increase in the size of as the MGB’s rival, the Triumph TR series. The design included windcars on the American road. A good MGB was easily had around $5,000 up windows and a comfortable driver’s compartment, with plenty of until recently. Chrome-bumper versions have now started topping legroom and a parcel shelf behind the seats. $15,000 – I saw one sell for $27,500 at the Gooding Scottsdale Auction, The MGB’s performance was brisk for the period, with a 0–60 mph but this should be considered an anachronism versus a trend. Generally time of just over 11 seconds, aided by the relatively light weight of speaking, chrome-bumpered cars trade in the $7-16,000 range, and rubthe car.

The mouse that roared COMMENTARY By Dick Wolfsie There is a mouse living in the Wolfsie kitchen. At least one. The dog knows it; the cat knows it. And my wife knows it. We’re just trying to hide it from the neighbors. We’ve had critter problems before, but there’s a big difference between having mice in your kitchen and having, let’s say, a woodchuck in your backyard. Having a woodchuck is something you can mention at a cocktail party and someday those very same people will flock to your backyard for a cube-steak cookout. In fact, when news gets out you have woodchucks, people will call to chat about it. What you thought was a real problem will make you the talk of the neighborhood. “Say, did you hear Dick Wolfsie has woodchucks?” “No, is that right? Well, leave it to an east-coaster like Dick, a man of the arts, to do something big and dramatic.” This is not the same reaction you get when word leaks out you have mice. “Have you heard Dick Wolfsie has mice?” “You’re surprised? He’s from New York. And he’s in television. Who knows what else is going on under his sink?” Before I go any further, let me be honest and tell you I’m not sure we have mice. I am sure we have one mouse, but despite my wife’s insistence we are infested with the creatures, I

believe it is the same mouse every time. “Dick, I think it’s several different mice. The first one seems nervous and shy. The other one is aggressive and dominant. And there’s this one under the kitchen sink that just seems lost.” “Mary Ellen, please don’t do this. If you assign rodents a personality, it will make it that much more difficult to get rid of them.” “What do you mean by ‘get rid of them’? Look, Dick, I want you to get rid of the mice, but I don’t want you to ever tell me you got rid of them.” “You don’t want any specifics on how they died?” “Do NOT mention the word ‘die’ in this house. Go Google ‘mouse’ and see if there’s some catch-and-release program you can sign up for. And you be nice to Seymour, especially.” “Mary Ellen, please don’t give them names. This is just making it worse when I have to … well, you know …” “Too much information! Too much information!” So I took care of things. We no longer have any mice in our kitchen, and I am pleased to say that Mary Ellen chooses to see me as benevolent and kind. But the cat hasn’t spoken to me in a week.

Want to make some new friends? Wear a Butler shirt COMMENTARY By Mike Redmond The week before the NCAA Final Four, I spent a little time in Philadelphia, and I made all kinds of new friends. All I had to do was walk around the city wearing a Butler University sweatshirt. My first morning in town, I strolled into the hotel lobby and found myself surrounded by a concierge and three bellmen, all telling me how much they enjoyed watching the Butler basketball they had seen in the NCAA tourney. “I hope you guys go all the way,” one of them said, gripping my hand. “Me, too,” I said, not wanting to spoil the moment by pointing out that I was not affiliated with Butler and that my only real contribution to Butler’s success was at the campus bookstore cash register ($39.95 for the shirt and 75 cents for a pack of Dentyne.) “Butler? I love Butler,” said Robin the host at the restaurant where I went for my daily infusion of Philadelphia scrapple, a breakfast food made of pork, cornmeal and spices and for me one of the top three reasons to visit Philadelphia. Anyway, Robin the host was so effusive in his praise for the Bulldogs you would have thought he was an alumnus. They were a Cinderella no more, he said, “Now they’re the prince.” I would have said future king, but point made.

That was pretty much the same point made by the toothless man in front of the Franklin Institute, who tore himself away from an argument about the Phillies to yell at me, a good half-block away, about how much he liked Butler. Friendly fellow. And then there was the lady who was coming out of my hotel as I exited a cab one night. “Butler!” she cried, raising her arms to the skies and trotting toward me. Frankly, I was a little alarmed. I had forgotten I was wearing the shirt. “We LOVE Butler!” she yelled. And then she made the sign of the cross and asked if it was a Catholic university. I guess she thought the Bulldogs play Holy Roman defense or something. Anyway, I set her straight and she didn’t seem the least bit disappointed. So if you find yourself in need of some new friends in a major east-coast city, here’s my advice: Go to Philadelphia in a Butler shirt during tourney time. You’ll be richly rewarded. Now I think I’ll go to Butler in a Philadelphia shirt to see if that works as well. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline.com or P.O.

DISPATCHES » Wash dogs more often – Bathing your dog can be cumbersome, but it’s essential for his or her health. Veterinary dermatologists recommend bathing your dog once a week – not just when they are dirty – to get rid of spores, dust, dust mites and even MRSA, the highly resistant staph virus. Most of the time humans give MRSA to pets, and pets act as a reservoir and ping-pong it back and forth. A new study showed that bathing was more effective [for getting rid of it] than using antibiotic treatments. Plus, a clean coat makes for an even more huggable dog. -www.womensday.com » Don’t adopt too early – Kittens adopted too young bite and claw more than those corrected by Mom and siblings. They also may be fearful or less tolerant of other cats because they don’t understand proper feline etiquette. Cat babies should stay with siblings and Mom for at least 12 to 16 weeks. That’s not always possible, though, and if you find yourself in that situation, it means you must be “catmom” and teach Junior claw, potty and other manners. It can help enormously to adopt two kittens at once, so they teach each other bite limits and target each other in play instead of your ankles. -www.pawnation.com

Tapeworms – the greatest nuisance to your pets COMMENTARY By Greg Magnusson Tapeworms have been causing a lot of confusion among my clients (and fellow veterinarians) lately. Mostly, this is because two of the drugs that were available only to vets to treat tapeworms have gone off-patent in the last few years, and owners are now treating these nasties with OTC dewormers. So let’s get our facts straight here. First of all, there are several species of tapeworms, each with a unique life cycle. Tapeworm egg sacs look like crawling grains of rice on your pet’s poop or in their fur. The egg sacs themselves are harmless to people and pets, as are the eggs inside. What’s key is that the eggs need to develop further before they are infective to mammals. This additional development occurs within an “intermediate host” – again, different depending on the species of tapeworms. In the “common” tapeworm, dipylidium caninum, the intermediate host is a flea. Tiny little growing flea larvae eat tapeworm eggs, then by the time the flea larvae grow into flea adults, the tapeworms inside them are ready to infect your pet. Then there is the Taenia group of tapeworms, of which there are nine different types in North America. Taenia taeniaeformis uses mice as the intermediate host and affects cats that eat the mice, while Taenia pisiformis uses rabbits as the intermediate host and affects dogs that eat the

rabbits. Here’s the key. There’s this drug, praziquantel, which nukes ALL tapeworms. According to Bayer, who developed it in the 1970s, praziquantel removes the tapeworm’s ability to protect itself from being digested. Because of this, whole tapeworms killed with praziquantel are rarely passed in the stool. The majority are digested, and not found in the feces. Praziquantel is listed on the World Health Organization’s Model List of Essential Medicines. It’s good stuff. Then there’s fenbendazole. I have learned to hate this stuff. One reason is because it’s labeled to be effective against tapeworms, but oh by the way, only taenia species (in ultra-small print)

and not the much more common dipylidium species. Sadly, it’s now available over the coun-

ter to confuse a giant population of ordinary consumers who see “tapeworms” on the label and don’t read further. Long story short, parasitology is a very complicated science. Please seek veterinary advice if you think your pet has worms, and have them send a poop sample to the lab to confirm what parasite you’re dealing with before you start treating your pet. Dr. Magnusson, a practicing veterinarian for the last decade, is now the owner of Leo’s Pet Care, a new veterinary hospital located at 106th and College.

Pets of the week Tucker is a four-year-old male white and tan Jack Russell Terrier mix.  Tucker is an outgoing boy who loves to chase tennis balls and is quickly learning to play fetch.  He is actually a bit insecure and isn’t sure he can really trust people, so he is currently in a foster home where he is gaining confidence and learning he doesn’t need to protect his toys or food.  He does enjoy snuggling and curling up on the lap of people he does trust, so he is well on his way to becoming a well-balanced family pet.  Until his training is complete, he would be best suited in a home with children age 16 or older.   Dreidel is a four-year-old male tabby DSH.  Dreidel is a handsome and gentle boy who is very social who loves to meet new people.  He is good with people of all ages and he gets along well with other cats.  Dreidel arrived at the shelter nearly five months ago and while he enjoys the company of the staff at the humane society, he is ready to move on and find a home he can call his own.  His front claws have been removed and he is litter box trained and would do well in any home. For more information on these and other animals at the Humane Society, call 317-773-4974
