DVD Review “The Act of Killing” is one of the best documentary films columnist Christopher Lloyd has seen in a while, even though it diverges quite a bit from the standard format of journalistic exploration.

Interior design is about the big picture and the big picture works when it is the result of a carefully planned compilation of elements and principles. Good taste, on the other hand, is the sum of one’s life experience and one’s exposure. A person can be born with a sense of design, while the quality of good taste is gleaned, collected and polished.

“St.Vincent offers a level of care that is unmatched,” said Dinah. “They’re compassionate and professional in everything they do. Anybody who does their research will find that the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence is a stellar facility with a wonderful staff.”

Dinah: A Bariatric Success Story. Most people who are good candidates for bariatric surgery have a lot of questions about the surgical and recovery process before deciding to undergo the procedure. Dinah — a previous patient at our Bariatric Center of Excellence — was no different. Dinah had tried countless diet and exercise programs before she started researching bariatric surgery. After evaluating her options, she decided to get in touch with the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence.

H E A L T H

Dinah prepared for her bariatric surgery by attending presurgical consultations and talking with an St.Vincent dietician. She also attended bariatric support groups at St.Vincent. Both of these experiences provided her answers to many of the questions and concerns she had about the procedure. “The pre-op consultation was really helpful for me,” she said. “All of my doctors and specialists made me feel comfortable, and helped me understand everything I wanted to know about my procedure.” Since undergoing surgery, Dinah has lost more than146 pounds and gone down 24 dress sizes. The experience has given her a newfound enthusiasm for life, allowing her to enjoy activities without feeling self-conscious about her weight. “The greatest thing about my surgery is how I feel,” she said. “I’m more active, self-confident and outgoing than ever. It’s been a huge change — for the better.” To find out more about the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence, visit MyBrandNewLife.com or call 877-831-1582.

Forum addresses safe gun use

By Holly Kline • news@currentinwestfield.com

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office issued 450 gun permits during the last two years. As a result, Deputy Mark Bowen wants safety gun owners to know about firearm safety. Residents are invited to a free Firearms Safety public education forum from 7 to 8 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds. “The Sheriff’s Office has received numerous requests for information on gun safety,” said Deputy Bryant Orem. “In response to the recent increase in firearms purchases and given the recent tragic Orem loss of two Hamilton County residents through misuse of firearms, Sheriff Bowen decided it was important to take the lead in educating the public on gun safety issues.” The Firearms Safety forum is open to all residents and is designed for junior high-age kids through adults. “This is the first time we have had an event focused solely on firearms safety,” Orem said. “All firearms owners, regardless of age or level of expe-

rience, should come away from the meeting with information and an appreciation for the importance of properly handling and securing a weapon.” According to Deputy Orem, there are four cardinal rules that gun owners can follow that will help prevent unintended firearm discharges. The rules are: 1. Treat every gun as if it is always loaded. 2. Never let the muzzle of a gun cover anything you are not willing to destroy. 3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. 4. Always be sure of your target and what is beyond the target. Orem also said guns should be stored unloaded and out of reach of children. “Teach kids not to handle firearms without permission, never to play with firearms, not to go looking for firearms, and if they find a firearm not to touch it but to tell an adult,” he said. There is no charge to attend the Firearms Safety forum and no registration is required. Free childcare will be provided for pre-school and elementary-school age children. Free gun locks will be available while supplies last and gun safety vendors will be on-site. Firearms should not be brought to the meeting.

Local play auditions – The Carmel Theatre Company will conduct auditions for “Next of Kin” from 5 to 7 p.m. Jan. 7. The theatre company would like to have as many relatives performing as possible: fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, sisters, etc. Auditions also will be held for “The Dining Room” from 7 to 9 p.m. Jan 7 at Studio 15, First Ave. N.E. in Carmel.

Babbs serving India orphanage – Jeff Babbs of Westfield will serve at the Home of Love in Chennai, India, in January during Huntington University’s third trip to serve at this all-girl orphanage. Babbs is a junior recreation and sports ministry major. The trip, led by philosophy professor David Alexander and his wife, Gen, has been one of the most successful service trips in Huntington’s history, and the demand to attend the trip has students returning again for J-Term. Home of Love, an orphanage for Indian girls at risk of living on the streets or getting involved in prostitution, is now bonded with Huntington. Students have raised thousands of dollars for the orphanage in past years in addition to leading Bible studies and performing on-site construction.

Why did you become a teacher? I loved my social studies teacher, Mr. Catt, in high school because he made the story come alive. I also find that the education of society and human relations makes for better citizens. What goals do you have for your students? My goals for my students are that they become thoughtful and thorough thinkers and doers. I want them to be technically and emotionally prepared to take a stand on an issue and defend it with credible evidence. What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? Middle school kids often say that school was “fine.” Don’t leave it at that. Ask them with specific questions, like, “What was the first

thing you did after lunch?” Even if they don’t talk about what they learned in a class, at least are practicing their communication skills. Also, be the four-year-old in their life: always ask “Why? Why? Why?” This gives them an opportunity to explain their reasoning and thought processes, which is essential to academic research and writing. What is your favorite movie? I watched “Cloud Atlas” this summer, and it was a movie that really made me think. I like to analyze my entertainment. But my favorite of all time is probably “Shawshank Redemption.” Who is your favorite musician or band? Not a band imparticular, but I love Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” because it’s three songs in one. What’s something your students might not know about you? I graduated high school a semester early with an Academic Honors diploma.

With Grand Park’s impending opening, Westfield prepares for tourism impact By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com With the Grand Park Sports Complex opening in a couple months, Westfield will officially create a new industry. “It’s more than just a cover story sports experience; it’s a tourist experience,” Mayor Andy Cook said. “There’s still a lot to do – indoor soccer and baseball facilities.” Tourism will become a vital role in the financial makeup of the city. Cook said the tourism opportunity for the city will be evident once Cook Grand Park guests begin arriving. “We already have 800,000 visitors expected for this year,” he said, adding projections increase to 1.5 million visitors for future years. As the city works on Grand Junction, development is also taking place directly south of the sports complex at Grand Park Village. The Henke Development Group recently unveiled its first retail building, two two-story buildings with a three-story clock tower, which will be at 168th Street and Grand Park Boulevard. (Pictured above)

Don’t forget marketing The U.S. 31 hotels will get a marketing boost with the opening of Grand Park. That’s because they pay the lions’ share of the innkeepers tax which funds the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau. The $1.66 million Carmel hotels paid dwarfs the agency’s projected 2014 advertising budget of $1.13 million

“It sets the quality of the architecture out there. It will be very well done,” Cook said. “We’re ready to start building in the spring.” Cook said there is a lot of interest in private development going on but there are many unsigned deals. One obstacle facing the economic growth in Westfield is the U.S. 31 project, which will not be completed until 2015. “Next year, depending on the economy, I would predict we’ll see a lot of development, actually probably later in the year,” Cook said. “In 2014-2018 we’ll see a sizeable amount of economic development taking shape and coming out of the ground.”

Hospitality initiative

To help the city prepare for a new industry, Cook has charged Erin Verplank, communications director, and the public relations department with implementing a new hospitality initiative. “This initiative to provide tools and training on hospitality extends to everyone associated with Grand Park – from volunteers, to umpires, to referees, to the park staff and even to the restaurants. We are looking at ‘super services,’ the project that was implemented with the help of IUPUI and Visit Indy, where 17,000 people were trained (prior to the Super Bowl),” Verplank said. “They have programs ongoing that we will utilize to train our people. We want all our trained volunteers to be engaging, friendly and knowledgeable.” The initiative focuses on three major groups: 1) “Existing businesses need to understand, yes, there will be a lot of new competition, but there will be a million new potential customers beyond what has been here,” Cook said. “We want to help them best take advantage of that. They can succeed and as a city we are there to help them.” 2) All of the hospitality businesses – old and new as a group. “They’re influential through how people return here. People remember the Super Bowl emphasis on downtown Indianapolis, this is what we have to do on a full-time basis, not one week,” Cook said. “Year-round, as a city we have to make people feel welcomed 24/7, 365.” 3) “We need to develop our citizenry into being good citizens in dealing with our visitors. They share in the industry also,” Cook said. “It’s an attitude.” That welcoming attitude is something many business people have adopted, like Nancy Nearon, owner of The Black Plum Café, 303 E. Main St.

“I’ve enjoyed meeting new folks from out of state. From the affluent ‘engineers’ to the ‘hippies’ it’s been a joy to serve up a hot cup of tea and see their appreciation and humbleness to sit and enjoy the cozy ambience and to hear comments on how fond they are of our close knit city. It’s fun to learn what talents they possess as tourists and the places they visit the most,” she said.

Tourism impact

Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Brenda Myers said tourism is the third-largest industry in Hamilton County, with 11.4 percent of employment. It falls behind healthcare (15.4 percent) and retail/trade (11.8 percent). Finance and insurance was a close fourth with 11 percent. “In 2013, hospitals dropped 7.2 percent, retail continues to grow at a 1.2 percent increase and tourism had a 7.1 percent increase,” Myers said. “The three are so close, they could all change Myers places.” The numbers come from a recent economic impact study that provides the HCCVB a benchmark before Grand Park opens. “We’re already seeing full weekends on the calendar and navigating that is exciting,” Myers said. “We have weeks in 2014 where every hotel is booked. We’re suggesting people look into Kokomo, Lafayette and Indianapolis.” Myers credits a portion of that to Grand Park’s scheduled events. “The tournaments are so large with 40 to 80 teams – it’s just huge,” she said, adding Hamilton County has more than 3,000 hotel rooms with 65 percent occupancy already for 2014. Myers said Hamilton County has a unique touring product with “wonderful downtowns in Noblesville and the Arts & Design District in Carmel, the Nickel Plate district in Fishers and Grand Junction in Westfield.” “One community has four cultural districts. All four are beautiful and unique and offer something different,” she said. “There also are anchor alternatives like the Indiana Transportation Museum, Klipsch Music Center, the Palladium and sports not just at the Grand Park Sports Complex.” Each also offers different experiences at different times of the year. “There are so many assets,” Myers said, adding that communities are being proactive about tourism. “They are looking for opportunities and ways to make it better.”

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP This legislation needs more teeth Sometimes news, after a time, fades so far into the background of day-to-day life that we tend to forget about it. It’s natural. We’re all going in different directions as we manage our work, home and social existences. Some news elements, though, bear refreshment for all of us. As we were headed toward New Year’s Eve, state Sen. Jim Merritt (R-Indianapolis), he of the overly important Lifeline Law about which we wrote much a little more than a year ago, has promised to introduce legislation when the General Assembly convenes. We like the way he’s thinking, when he says the state’s sentencing protocol needs to be more stringent for those found guilty of commission of a violent crime when using a firearm. “We can no longer tolerate home invasions, violent crimes, senseless shootings and murders in our communities,” Merritt astutely said late last month. “I believe we need to strengthen penalties against violent offenders throughout Indiana to keep them off our streets.” Prevailing law limits prosecutors and judges to issue an additional five years of imprisonment for violent offenders using a firearm during a crime. Merritt wants to make stronger the existing statute by adding language that makes sentence enhancement mandatory for violent offenders committing crimes using a firearm and increasing the additional fixed term of imprisonment to 20 years minimum. We urge all our elected officials, as well as chiefs of police and county sheriffs, to get behind Merritt’s proposal. And as for the Legislature, enacting the measure should be one of the first orders of business and a real no-brainer. In the end, we hopefully will have more of a deterrent to such violence, which, in and of itself, is senseless.

Act your age Commentary by Terry Anker Routinely we demand of our children – “Act your age.” In common parlance, it is intended to send the message that the youngster is somehow falling short of the adult expectation for development of a child of a certain age. In our house, we aspire that our boys have attained sufficient chronological maturity to expect that they restrict the practice of their ultimate Frisbee moves to locations outside of the house! Certainly, the damage inflicted by a 180 pound six foot tall 17 year-old is far more daunting than that which might be perpetrated by a 3½ foot tall 3 year-old. But is our expectation honestly connected to fear that the Frisbee match might lead to a knocked over Christmas tree or some innate expectation of emotional development tied to the progression of the calendar? Knowing of my own impending birth anniversary, a longtime friend forwarded a link to an online test claiming the ability, after one offers earnest answers to a retinue of interrogatories to accurately

predict one’s emotional age. In order for the outcome to best approximate correctness, the taker is admonished, one must answer all questions without filter. It is harder to do than one would presume. Questions that might point us towards a younger rating stand out and the temptation is to direct ourselves into the junior category. This impulse is so strikingly contrasted against our own young sons who work to appear emotionally older. After completing the assessment, the software returned a verdict. I am playing at slightly less than 70% of my age. Initially, I reacted by strutting around a little. How does one post this to Facebook? But before I could make the technology do my bidding, I wondered – is it good to register younger than our biological age? Maybe, it is time to grow-up!

It’s been a day I haven’t been looking forward to, but it finally came on Jan. 1. Amazon is now charging taxes for Indiana residents (Nevada and Tennessee also are joining the 16 states that already collect taxes too). I completely understand the reasoning behind it. Brick-and-mortar stores were losing business to online sites (especially big ones like Amazon) and while they were paying taxes and providing jobs in the state, online sites weren’t. Is it fair for online companies to offer prices for 7 percent lower than the local stores that charge state tax? No. Have I purchased items from Amazon that price matched local stores solely because they didn’t charge 7 percent and offered free shipping? Many times (but I’m a frugal buyer and always looking for the best deals – just ask my wife, I’ve already started Christmas shopping). In 2007, state officials agreed Indiana wouldn’t push for online sales tax collection with the Seattle-based Amazon when it opened its first warehouse in the state. Amazon now has five distribution centers in Indiana. But after lawsuits and lobbying from traditional retailers over the policy, former Gov. Mitch Daniels reached an agreement with Amazon to voluntarily start collecting state sales tax in 2014. It’s bad news for some consumers like me, but good for the state because the collection of sales taxes from online-only retailers is potentially lucrative for state government. According to the nonpartisan Legislative Services Agency, state officials project Indiana will see a $57 million per year boost in revenue just from Amazon sales. A study completed in 2012 by the Indiana Fiscal Policy Institute and Ball State University researchers estimates the state loses up to $114 million each year in uncollected sales taxes on internet purchases. Does the change mean I’ll see lower property taxes right away? I’m frugal, not naïve. I do hope that the increase in revenue will be used wisely and will eventually be impactful to me, but right now I think that item is out of stock.

Assessing the holidays

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

The holidays are over, and I finally have a moment to sit down and assess. What went well and what didn’t? What changes, humor if any, should we make for next year? What gift already is broken and should never have been purchased in the first place? I like to do this exercise, because not only does it cement memories into my rapidly aging brain, but it also forces me to appreciate family, however chaotic our time together was. And it was chaotic. Doo and I spent the weekend before Christmas with my parents, four sisters and four brothers-in-law (and 11 children) shopping, cooking, eating, gambling, movie-going and reveling. We were all holed up in two houses, conveniently located directly across the street from one another, and experienced what can only be described as “Camp Morris.” We stayed in the cabin and had to trek up the hill to the main lodge for coffee, food and fellowship. But when you put that many people in close proximity to one another for more than a day, things can turn dicey. Doo and I for example, got into it at our Christmas Eve Eve’s dinner, and didn’t speak to each other until the next morning. Even worse, a stomach bug ripped through the campgrounds a mere 12 hours after our departure. Good times, good times. We saw our own share of puke on Christmas Day at the Wilsons’ gathering, in addition to

vicariously reliving the woes of parenting small children hopped up on Santa’s visit, candy canes and sleep deprivation. Doo and I could sit comfortably while bedlam ensued (this side has 21 grandchildren, several of whom became armed with marshmallow-shooting guns at some point in the afternoon), commiserating with our suffering comrades and ensuring them that they just had to survive another four to six years for Christmas to be fun again. Throw in a heated tradition vs. change conversation, a couple of kids who didn’t get what they wanted, and the aforementioned vomiting toddler, and you’ve got a fairly standard holiday gathering. More good times, indeed. In the heat of the moment, it’s difficult to clearly determine how things went. But now that the tree is down (though I am still finding tinsel) and we’re all back into our normal routines, I can honestly rate the 2013 festivities as an A-. We’ll probably make a few slight changes to next year’s holiday schedule, but given that we successfully spent quality time with two large families without offing ourselves or a minion, I’d say it went pretty well. Hope yours did too. Peace out.

A year of laughter

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

This is the time of year when I acknowledge all the people who made my job as a humorist a little bit easier. Every column humor I write – there has never been an exception – is based on truth, something that really happened to me or someone I know, or a story in the news. So here’s a big thank you to a few of my sources.… The old “Emily Post Etiquette” book I found in my basement that contains some traditional tips on proper manners. Post advises to never shake your napkin when opening it, which has put a damper on my first magic trick each night. The European food conglomerate that “withdrew” one of their frozen appetizers from supermarket shelves because the meat allegedly came from retired thoroughbreds. In racing terminology, horses are not “withdrawn,” but no consumer wants to hear: “Effective immediately, we are scratching our Swedish meatballs.” The fashion design company lululemon. After discovering their yoga tights became translucent when stretched, they issued this unfortunate press release: “The company is pulling its pants down off the shelves.” The country of Iceland, where apparently too many intimate relationships are between distant cousins. The problem is that most of the Icelandic natives hail from the same ninthcentury Viking settlers whose descendants

never left the island. (Except those who went to Hollywood to make Capital One commercials.) My wife, who was bitten by our cat. The bite swelled while we were with some friends so we all went to the emergency room with Mary Ellen. The Wolfsies have good health insurance, making it a cheaper night out than a movie. The folks at Hammacher Schlemmer, whose early Christmas catalogue featured a Shark Bait sleeping bag for kids. It contained this endorsement: “It facilitates sleep, even while the child appears as though he is being digested.” Don’t buy one. In two weeks, they’ll be on Craigslist at a fraction of the price. Jamie Lee Curtis, whose commercial for Activia begins with, “I’m having an affair with my yogurt.” This is a great way to get a yeast infection. Or is it the best way to avoid one? I have no idea. I’m a guy. And finally, on a serious note, a thank you to myself for resisting the advice of a wellmeaning emergency care veterinarian who recommended seven months ago that I put my then-ailing beagle to sleep because he probably only had a few days to live. I have to go now. Toby wants to go for a walk.

T H I S   W EE K Hedwig and the Angry Inch – “Hedwig” is a rock musical about a fictional rock ’n’ roll glam band fronted by an East German CARMEL transgender singer. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970s glam rock era of David Bowie, as well as the work of John Lennon and rockers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. This is Footlite’s annual cabaret production. The musical has adult content, and it’s not recommended for people under 18. The opening performance is at 8 p.m. Jan. 10 at the Footlite Theatre, 1847 N. Alabama St., Indianapolis.

New exhibit chronicles ’60s theatre changes By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com Boy meets girl and falls in love. Boy loses girl at the end of the first act, and we all head to the lobby for intermission. Boy theatre and girl resolve their differences at the end of the second act. Everyone lives happily ever after, and we all leave the theatre humming the title tune. This formula applied to nearly every Broadway musical written before the 1960s. But as a social revolution bubbled to the surface across the country, those changing times reflected back on us from the footlights of the Broadway stage. Suddenly, musical theatre was dealing with themes of oppression, discrimination, abortion, women’s rights, the draft and socialism. This paradigm shift is chronicled at the Michael Feinstein Initiative’s new exhibit, “A Change is Gonna Come; 1960s Broadway Musicals,” which opened Jan. 6, and will run through most of this year. “As we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of many of the musicals from this period, it’s a great time to look back,” said Lisa Lobdell, archivist for the Feinstein Initiative. “The ’60s ushered in a period where we were less afraid to tackle difficult topics in the theatre. It opened the door for modern-day musicals like ‘The Book of Mormon,’ in which we not only address, but poke fun at, our deeply held beliefs. Before the ’60s, every musical was tied to the Great American Songbook, and the songs from the hit shows of the time dominated the radio as well. It was during this era that Broadway found its own way, and the shows really started to have a social impact. It was a very important time.” The exhibit features floor to ceiling posters,

original playbills, memorabilia and interactive touchscreens which showcase the seminal musicals of the ’60s. One of the major trends that define the period is the rise of shows written to star women - who may or may not have had or needed a man by the end of the show - such as “Mame,” “Hello, Dolly!,” “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” “Funny Girl” and “Cabaret.” The centerpiece of the exhibit is the handpainted and hand-beaded, black sequined Halston jacket that Liza Minelli wore in the original Broadway production of “Cabaret,” which touched on such taboo topics as abortion and Nazism. Other shows explored emerging themes of the changing times, such as oppression (“Man of La Mancha,”) free love and revolution (“Hair” and “Oh, Calcutta!”) discrimination (“Fiddler on the Roof,”) the generation gap (“The Fantasticks,”) divorce (“110 in the Shade,”) and hopes, dreams and talents quashed by the draft (“Bye Bye Birdie”).

Telling the other Lincoln story

By Terri Spilman • editorial@youarecurrent.com Playwright and Carmel resident MaryAnne Mathews believes that former first lady Mary Todd Lincoln deserves to tell her theatre own story in her own words. So she penned a one-woman play entitled, “Mrs. President: A Visit with Mary Todd Lincoln,” that is funny, poignant and at times heartbreaking, and she’ll stage a production at the Carmel Theatre Company’s Studio 15 starting Jan.10. As a history buff and retired social studies teacher, Mathews became interested in Mary Todd Lincoln’s life after she portrayed her in the 2012 production of “A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Story” at the Lincoln Amphitheater in Lincoln City, Ind. “I started researching her and I became really interested in all the different portrayals of her. Everything she did was construed in the most negative way,” Mathews said. “Mary Lincoln was very intelligent and had positive qualities. It’s unfair that all people know is that she had mental problems. So unfair. She had reasons for her actions. I wanted to focus on what it was like to be her from her perspective,” she said. “I started doing a lot of reading and research to portray her in more of a full way and not as just a one dimensional figure.” The play focuses on the end of her life in the early 1880s at the last place she lived - her sister Elizabeth’s house in Springfield, Ill. During the visit, Mary reminisces about her childhood, her meeting and courtship with Abraham Lincoln, her life as a young mother and life in the White House. Following a brief intermission, Mathews will perform as herself in “Remembering Gettysburg,” a 40-minute program of story and songs of the Civil War, commemorating the 150th Anniversary

of the Battle of Gettysburg and the dedication of the National Cemetery. The performance includes an original song written by Mathews, “Remembering Gettysburg.” There will be a question and answer session following the last performance for individuals interested in discussing the play or the process of writing and producing a play. “Mrs. President: A Visit with Mary Todd Lincoln” and “Remembering Gettysburg” • Carmel Theatre Company’s Studio 15 • 15 First Avenue N.E. in Carmel • 7 p.m. Jan. 10 and Jan. 11; 2 p.m. Jan. 12. • Tickets are $12. • For more information, call 688-8876 or visit www.carmeltheatrecompany.com.

It used to be that living to 75 amounted to a nice long life and Social Security often was supplemented by a pension. How planning different things are today. The good news is that life expectancy for U.S. women – as measured by the Centers for Disease Control – is now 81.1 years. The Social Security administration estimates that the average 65-year-old woman today will live to be 86. Are you prepared for a 20-year retirement? How about a 30- or 40-year retirement? Don’t laugh, it could happen: the Social Security administration predicts that about 25 percent of today’s 65-year-olds will live past 90, with approximately 10 percent living to be older than 95. The following are some strategies to consider: Plan your investing Many people retire with a random collection of investments and no real strategy. Some are big on “chasing the return” – assuming risk they really shouldn’t in pursuit of a high return. Others are very risk-averse, so fearful of what stocks might do that they stay out of the market entirely. In the current low interest rate environment, that represents an easy way to fall behind and lose purchasing power to inflation. Find a middle ground When you are in your 50s, you have less time to make back any big investment losses than you once did. Protecting what you have is a

priority. At the same time, the possibility of a 15-, 20-, or even 30- or 40-year retirement means you have to keep a foot, if not both feet, in some kind of growth investing. Your initial retirement nest egg has to keep growing. Look at long-term care coverage Medicare is no substitute for long-term care insurance; it only pays for 100 days of nursing home care, and only if you get skilled care and enter a nursing home right after a hospital stay of three or more days. Long-term care coverage can provide a huge financial relief if and when the need arises. Claim Social Security carefully If your career and health permit, delaying Social Security is a wise move. If you wait until retirement age to claim your benefits, you could receive 30 to 40 percent larger social security payments as a result. Married women can look at spousal claiming strategies such as the “file and suspend” approach and claiming spousal benefits first. This may help to maximize the Social Security benefits you and your spouse received. Above all, retire with a plan and stick to that plan.

IU Health to treat patients with UnitedHealthcare insurance as ‘in-network’ news@currentinwestfield.com IU Health and UnitedHealthcare have been in negotiations to reach an agreement for 2014, but a new agreement was not Insurance finalized before the contract expiration date on Dec. 31, 2013. Discussions will continue in January. Therefore, as of Jan. 1, IU Health and IU Health Physician doctors and facilities will become out-of-network for most patients covered under UnitedHealthcare health insurance. But IU Health has made the decision to treat UnitedHealthcare patients and their portion of the bill as ‘in-network’ to help avoid disruption of care and help reduce the patient’s overall costs. “This decision is consistent with our commitment to ensuring patients have access to nationally recognized care,” said Dr. John C. Kohne, chief medical officer, Indiana University Health. “We know patients value the relationship with their physician and health care team, and we

want to help them maintain those relationships without unnecessary disruption.” This special in-network status means that UnitedHealthcare patients may continue to receive care from IU Health doctors and IU Health facilities, but are responsible for any innetwork deductible and co-pay fees. This special in-network status will apply to the portion of a patient’s bill that is based on the 2014 benefit levels. No immediate steps are required to receive this in-network status. Patients are encouraged to schedule appointments and visit care providers as they normally would. If a patient sees their IU Health provider and receives a statement that includes fees higher than anticipated (out of network fees, for example), they should call the number listed on the statement and the fees will be adjusted to in-network costs. In the meantime, IU Health continues to be committed to working toward an agreement with UnitedHealthCare.

Luck supports Riley Hospital news@currentinwestfield.com

Andrew Luck, quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, is deepening his commitment to Riley Hospital for Children at giving back Indiana University Health by supporting the Riley at IU Health School Program, which ensures that young patients can stay on track academically while hospitalized. Luck’s initial relationship with Riley at IU Health began in April with the launch of the “Change the Play” program, an initiative he helped develop in partnership with Riley at IU Health designed to teach kids how to be the quarterback of their health and wellness. Staffed by seven licensed teachers, the program coordinates assignments with patients’ schools and provides tutoring opportunities to all inpatients in kindergarten through grade 12 throughout their hospital stay. Emily Hume, 12, of Seymour, has been hospitalized since July 4 due to a mysterious heart virus. Hume is tethered to the Berlin Heart device, a machine that allows her heart to regain its strength. To keep up with her studies, she works with a Riley at IU Health teacher each day - even Skyping at times with her hometown teachers and classmates. “If this program didn’t exist, I’d have weeks and weeks of homework to catch up on when I go home,” Hume stated. “It helps prevent me from having to repeat the seventh grade.” Despite being in the hospital, Hume recently achieved her goal of earning straight A’s, landing her a spot on the high honor roll. Luck will volunteer some of his free time to help patients complete homework assignments, science experiments and other fun-filled educational activities at the hospital.

In addition, Luck is donating personal funds to Riley Children’s Foundation to enrich the Riley at IU Health School Program. Two of his supporters, companies Chegg and Lenovo, are also providing free textbooks and tablets to patients and program staff. “Ensuring children have access to a good education and seamless learning is something I’m passionate about,” Luck stated. “Helping support the Riley School Program is incredibly important to me because no child should have his or her academic goals sidelined by illness or injury.” The Change the Play initiative emphasizes the importance of physical fitness and good nutrition, and teaches kids to take care of themselves holistically by exercising their minds, keeping stress in check, getting sufficient sleep and modeling positive health behaviors to peers and family members.

King Ludwig’s fairy tale castle Commentary by Don Knebel

If the castle in the picture looks familiar, but you have never been to Germany, the explanation is not a prior life as a Bavarian travel prince. The castle, built by an eccentric king deposed for claimed insanity, is the model for Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castles. Ludwig II became king of Bavaria in 1864 at age 18. Shy and aloof, Ludwig loved theatre and the operas of Richard Wagner, whose career he rescued. Ludwig particularly admired tales of medieval kings in fairy tale castles. So in 1869, relying on his personal fortune, he began building a refuge in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps to match his fantasies. Conceived by a set designer, the plans envisioned a 65,000-square-foot castle with Romanesque towers and 200 lavishly appointed rooms. By 1885, only about 15 rooms had been completed, including a throneless throne room inspired by Turkey’s Hagia Sophia. Because of Ludwig’s ever more grandiose ideas, construction costs were already double the original budget and Ludwig was deeply in debt. Some of the extra costs were incurred installing the latest technology, including electric bells to summon the staff.

After Ludwig had stayed in his unfinished castle about six months, his ministers had him declared insane. The evidence included little more than his obvious obsession with the castle. On June 12, 1886, Ludwig was deposed and the next day he was found dead in waist-deep water in Lake Starnberg. The death was labeled a suicide by drowning, but many suspect he was murdered. Ludwig’s body was interred in Munich’s St. Michael’s Church and his heart placed in an urn in a chapel in the Bavarian town of Altötting. After Ludwig’s death, his castle was named “Neuschwanstein” (New Swan Stone) and its few completed rooms, some decorated with frescoes representing Wagner’s operas, were opened to a paying public. Today, the king once derided as “Mad Ludwig” is beloved by Bavarians, in part because of the enormous popularity of his castle. Every day in the summer, about 6,000 visitors to Neuschwanstein pour money into Bavaria’s economy, helping make it the richest state in Germany. King Ludwig, take a bow. .

Whole house remodel features new kitchen

Commentary by Larry Greene

Existing home: Located in the Village Farms neighborhood in Carmblueprint for el, this improvement 1990 home was too dark for the homeowner. “It was not to my taste,” the homeowner stated. “I bought the house for the floor plan. It suited my elderly father with the bedrooms all on the first floor. But the décor was not for me. I like light and bright and it was dark.” The goal of the design involved renovating the basement and the entire first floor of the home. Kitchen design: The kitchen design focused on adding functionality and considering aging-inplace standards. Recessed can lights on dimmer switches and new LED under-cabinet lighting was installed. Rather than have the worry of the damaging hardwood floors with spills, tile flooring was installed. The design took into account the elderly father who is hearing impaired. A custom cabinet was designed to hold a special lighted phone for the father. This area also doubled as an organizational spot for the home. Cabinetry changes: New white painted

before & after

maple cabinets were installed all the way to the ceiling to eliminate the need for dusting. “I was originally hoping to have transom cabinets with glass doors, but they didn’t fit into our budget,” said the homeowner. “Our designer suggested adding two cabinets with glass inserts as a compromise. These allow me to display my family heirlooms.” Kitchen details: Granite countertops in Blue Pearl are complimented by the backsplash done

Final Results: The homeowner was very sensitive to the needs of her elderly father and her future needs as she ages in the home. The color pallet of the kitchen was also important. She knew she wanted yellow, blue and white. Those elements were brought into the design.
