OUR VIEWS

It is our position as the Super Bowl comes to town, so do a great number of people who are not used to our roundabout system. Expect a week full of cars stopped at the entrances and in the middle of our roundabouts. While we can’t know now what the week leading up to the big game will be like, we can guess, based on other cities’ experiences, everything is going to be hectic. This most likely will include the roads, and specifically, the roundabouts. We love the efficiency and safety of our roundabouts, but there is the problem they are foreign to many outside of Hamilton County and can cause confusion. Our best advice is to be patient and be ready for the unexpected when it comes to entering a roundabout. As Feb. 5 nears, Hamilton County is going to get a little chaotic with out-of-towners looking to enjoy all the different events our community will offer. We’ve been working for years in preparation of the crowds staying in Hamilton County hotels and eating in our restaurants. Now it’s time for Hamilton County to charm our visitors. Step one includes making sure they feel safe in our roundabouts.

Political negatives

It is our position the “buyer-beware” tactic has taken over when it comes to negative political advertising. There is an oncoming tsunami of political attack ads this presidential election year. A survey commissioned by the Project on Campaign Conduct found voters dislike negative advertising. Why, then, is it increasingly used in political campaigns? The short answer is, though voters dislike them, they work. In comparative commercial advertising, the message must be true. The standards are much looser in political advertising. The truth is often skewed or distorted to achieve desired results. Perhaps, the best tactic is to not believe everything you hear. Web sites, such as FactCheck.org and Project VoteSmart.com, allow voters to sift through the spin and provide information regarding candidate’s voting records, issue positions, biographies, public statements, etc. Daily political media slugfests suppress voter turnout. Instead of staying home on Election Day, perhaps a better response would be to utilize the power of the vote. Vote for the candidate who runs a positive campaign and doesn’t try to mislead the voter.

How to not catch a raccoon

FROM THE BACKSHOP Hungry for news? The feed will become endless This newspaper thing is a lot of fun for us, and we have been at it for nearly a combined 68 years. On paper, we get 52 chances a year to give you the news and information you desire. It’s an opportunity and a responsibility we take seriously. But the days of copy paper and carbon paper on the barrels of manual typewriters long ago gave way to computers. For years, it has been all about technology. (Stay with us; there’ll be a point made soon.) The Internet – thank you, Al Gore – presents us with chances to give you what you need NOW. To that end, the Center for the Performing Arts quietly posted its financial audit and internal review last week, and Christian Sorrell, our new online/social media coordinator, went into “Tasmanian Devil” mode. In no time at all, he had the Center’s reports posted to our Web sites, Facebook accounts and Twitter sites. Traffic increased again, as it has since Christian came aboard the week before last. We got the news out well in advance of all other Central Indiana media outlets. That’s a special moment in our business, being first. Until the two of us began to take this whole Internet thing ultra-seriously, it was standard

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg operating procedure to simply wait for the next edition. The late, great Vince Lombardi, he of Green Bay Packers coaching fame, once said, “To do the same thing repeatedly and expect a different result is the definition of insanity.” Were it not for our decision to bring Christian aboard, we were closing in on a rubber room for two. Old dogs learning new tricks, the two of us. See? It can be done, and sometimes in the nick of time. So, as Christian would tell you, watch our Web, Facebook and Twitter sites (each paper has its own; start at www.youarecurrent.com), because we aim to feed. Early and often.

Summer breakdown COMMENTARY By Terry Anker Recently, much has been said about tuition and schedule alternatives to the traditional fouryear college degree. Many institutions, including Ball State and Purdue, have recently announced initiatives to make it easier (and in some cases cheaper) for kids to pursue a diploma without spending as many years on campus. Advocates for the plans point to savings, sometimes significant, to young people and their families if the matriculation comes earlier and full-time employment starts quicker. While the math holds up, many claim intangibles like the maturity and perspective gained during the fourth (or more) years on campus can’t be offset by a year of saved expenses and earning capacity. Still, others defend the existing system citing the expectations of teachers, students and parents to have summer, fall, winter and spring breaks. But there are other considerations as well. If this paper, for example, were to add 25 percent to its page count, wouldn’t that necessarily allow for more content and more advertising? If a uni-

versity can graduate kids in three years instead of four, doesn’t that mean 25 percent more young people can access the opportunity to attend the college? Some would rightly argue a surplus of seats in a class would lead to lower admission standards. In other words, some kid would get into the class that wouldn’t have otherwise, had there been fewer seats. But if education is the key to a solid future, how can we tell Jane she has no hope because we arbitrarily decided the academic calendar should not exceed 30 weeks in any given year? Big money, adolescent maturity, access to education and the conviction to established patterns are all at play in what is coming together as a colossal power struggle. But in a globallycompetitive world, isn’t it good to challenge the status quo? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

COMMENTARY By Lindsay Eckert For the past year, a family of raccoons has called my pap’s barn “home.” The night-loving creatures hide away during the day and sneak away at night to unseen land. (I bet they’re sitting around a bonfire planning their next destruction.) Every morning, we find evidence of their efforts and it heats my pap’s blood to a boil. We tried countless coon-catching methods. But, the closest we ever got to catching one was when my even-tempered, always lady-like mother went chasing after one with a pitch fork. Last week, we had a family weekend at my grandparents’ and the tale of the taunting raccoons snarled through every conversation after we asked my pap why a shotgun was sitting at the front door. Then, my cousin’s wife came back from the store. Putting raw bacon, peanut butter and honey buns on the counter, she said, “Here’s the ingredients for your ridiculous coon hunt.” Although my cousin is an articulate and educated orthodontist, dental school didn’t include tips for coon catching. Ironically, a toothless “TV star” who calls himself the Turtle Man and yells “live action” every five minutes had all of our answers. His “team” is three toothless men dressed in T-shirts emblazoned with “Snapperlicous.”

We watched Turtle Man cover raw bacon with peanut butter, rub honey buns on barn walls and tuck the concoction in the back of a “live action” trap. We headed for the barn with our ingredients and a new education in “coon catching” to catch these little devils, for the first and last time. My cousin and I followed Turtle Man’s every step, while our pap monitored from the house. We had full confidence in the honey buns’ ability to lure, because once we got back, the smell of the buns lured us to the pantry. Our plan to stay up all night vigilantly waiting for “live action” fell short. Pap fell asleep in his chair and my cousins and I started watching Saturday Night Live. We were having so much fun, we forgot about the pest. The next morning, we went to the barn to find our “coon catch.” The honey bun and bacon were untouched. Pap was worried we missed a crucial step, “Did the Turtle Man say we needed to cook the bacon first?” We’re going to stick to more “reliable” sources next time.

Missing babies

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson When my husband underwent a vasectomy almost eight years ago, there was no question in our minds that choosing permanent birth control was the right choice. I did, however, take our newborn daughter to the appointment, afraid one of us might need the not-so-gentle reminder of a screaming infant to hold us steadfast to our decision. Having just hit the big 4-0 last week, I’ve begun to feel a few twinges of regret. Not surprising, I suppose. I’m nearing the end of my child-bearing years and probably only have a few good eggs left. After those are gone, there’ll be no chance of me ever reproducing again. I must confess, accepting the fact that I’ll soon be too old to have babies is more difficult than I anticipated. And making my graceful embrace of perimenopause even harder is the fact that close friends of ours just had a baby. (Close friends who, I must note, are only a year younger than we.) While visiting them in the hospital, I actually found myself calculating the odds of my whisking the infant away before the alarms could rouse a taser-armed security guard. The odds were not overwhelming, so I took a moment to simply enjoy rocking her in my arms and to briefly contemplate doing it all again.

I think a part of me was envious. I miss the excitement that comes along with a new life. I miss the possibilities a new life presents. I miss the pure joy of creating a miracle. And, if I’m totally honest with myself, I miss the attention that expecting and new moms receive. Admittedly petty, but true. Thank God I have a sister who is pregnant with identical twins. She reminds me on a daily basis why I’m thrilled to be in the next stage of my life. Her first trimester, all-day sickness has given way to severe varicose veins, emotional distress over high-risk multiples and the frightening realization she still has four more months of weight gain, stretch marks and hernias. Then, it’s years of sleepless nights, breastfeeding horrors and diaper debacles. No. Thank. You. Not at 40. So I guess the lesson learned here is this: We make the best decisions we can based on where we are in life; second guessing yourself only leads to possible incarceration. Yes, I’m growing older, but I’m also growing wiser and more confident. Besides, I like the idea of grandbabies I can return to parents. Peace out.

New pub owner has her own ‘place’

IMMI loans executive for training facility

By Lindsay Eckert Lindsay@youarecurrent.com The building of the former Main Street Bar and Grill, 781 E. Main St., is now the home of C.J.’s Place Good Time Pub and Eatery, a bar for people to call home, according to new owner Cathy Bowman. Bowman, a first-time business owner, said the opportunity to open her own enterprise came in the form as a happy accident. “I used to have a small bar in my game room and I was looking at Craig’s List to find another and I found a for-sale listing for this bar,” Bowman said. “I decided to buy it and my friends said I should name it C.J.’s Place after my name, Cathy Jo.” Bowman, a Noblesville native, said she has spent 25 years working in the restaurant industry and had always wanted to have a business of her own, and the convenient location was the perfect place. “I love small towns, and Westfield has that

By Lindsay Eckert Lindsay@youarecurrent.com Indiana Mills and Manufacturing Inc., a Westfield-based company that designs, tests and manufactures advanced safety systems, is loaning Kurt Aikman as an IMMI executive in residence to develop a business plan for the construction of the Central Indiana Public Safety Training and Education Center. Aikman is working with IMMI Executive Board, Advisory Board and Steering panel to provide direction and growth with respect to marketing, budgets and operations for the $30 million facility. Part of IMMI’s business plan is designed to fund the project without reaching into taxpayers’ pockets, and Aikman says he’s overseeing the planning of the facility to speed up the project’s process. “We are currently developing a sustainability plan that will identify operational expenses and potential revenue streams, such as outside revenue from course fees, facility usage fees, etc.,” Aikman said. “We are exploring opportunities to collaborate with the private sector while educating individuals and organizations about the project to support the vision for the project and offset expenses.” Aikman said he has provided his services to the project to get the facility off the ground and continue the momentum already generated.

week night events Nightly events begin at: ** Tuesday: Open microphone and poker Wednesday: Game night- $ buckets of domestic beers for a free round of pool or darts. Thursday: Karaoke night

Cathy Bowman, owner of C.J.’s Place Good Time Pub and Eatery friendly-neighborhood feel,” Bowman said. “C.J.’s is a neighborhood gathering place with good food, good prices and friendly bartenders. It’s kind of like “Cheers” where everyone knows your name.” Bowman said weekly events are planned for the restaurant, and she plans to have live music on the restaurant’s patio during the summer. In addition, she wants to use the restaurant to contribute to the community. “I want to hold fundraisers for our local fire department in the summer,” Bowman said.

“As a provider of advanced protection for firefighters and EMS personnel, IMMI is always looking for ways to improve the safety of first responders. The training provided at this facility does just that,” Aikman said. “IMMI believes in research and is invested heavily in innovation. The potential activities that could take place at the training facility will put Westfield on the leading edge of training for first responders.” Mayor Andy Cook said the facility is beingbuilt as funds become available, and some of those funds have come from Hamilton County municipalities pooling the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Emergency Federal funding grants. “Westfield contributed its Emergency Federal Fund grant and Fishers included its FEMA grant to fund the first building,” Cook said. “We will also receive revenue from agencies that contract with the facility for space to practice field training and educational activities in the building’s classrooms.” According to John Barrett, Westfield Fire Dept. spokesman, the facility has opened one classroom and has some space to provide outdoor training. However, there isn’t a timeline for the project’s next step or completion date. Aikman said the process depends on commercial funding. If a business is interested in getting involved or would like to train at the facility, it may contact IMMI at 896-9531.

Kelties adds tunes to diners’ taste buds By Lindsay Eckert Lindsay@youarecurrent.com Kelties Restaurant, 110 S. Union St., is serving up gourmet dinners with a side of live music. The eight-year-old restaurant made its debut with the while-you-dine entertainment last Halloween and saw a major spike in sales. “Our alcohol sales increased by 75 percent Halloween night,” Stephen Greiner, Kelties restaurant manager, said. “We started offering live music once a month and alcohol sales on those nights were up by 40 to 50 percent.” So far, the restaurant, owned by Keltie Sullivan Domina, has entertained diners with bands that play jazz and big band music, but Greiner said the restaurant is open to all types of music as long as it’s family-friendly. “Music is a great way to add to people’s dining experience,” Greiner said. “The Saturday nights when we have live music, people are laughing and talking more, it’s what people want to do on a Saturday night.” However, if you’re looking for a quiet night out, Kelties also hosts diners in its back room,

away from the music. According to Greiner, Kelties has some big plans for the big Super Bowl. “We’re drawing from people visiting who want to eat local,” Greiner said. “We’re having live music and drink specials,” he added. Kelties’ concerts are monthly, but Greiner said they plan to expand the performances to a weekly schedule while also mixing some different types of entertainment into the pot. “We’re looking to partner with some theater companies to offer vignettes, short descriptive literary sketches, acted along to live music and we want to host events for art vendors to display or sell their art,” Greiner said. “We also plan to add beers from local breweries, Flat12 Bierwerks and The Upland Brewery Comp., to our beer menu and incorporate them into beer and wine nights where we serve foods paired with drinks.” Kelties also offers etiquette classes.

WFD boss ‘doubles up’ By Lindsay Eckert Lindsay@youarecurrent.com Westfield Fire Chief Todd Burtron added a second title to his business card when Mayor Andy Cook invited Burtron to contribute his “leadership abilities” as Cook’s chief of staff. The position opened a door to new opportunities for Burtron when Bruce Hauk, former Westfield deputy mayor, left to work for Indiana American Water Co. Burtron, 40, said his 16-year history as a Westfield firefighter motivated him to work hard and make a difference early in his career. In 2008, he was appointed by the then newly-elected Cook to fire chief. Last May, Burtron accepted the chief of staff position. Burtron said his persistence to do a job well helps him find a successful balance. “I hadn’t really thought of myself in that role [chief of staff]. When the Mayor asked me to step into the position, I proudly took on that role and I put my heart and soul into it.” Burtron said. “If you show up to work and do things right for the right reasons, people notice, and you want that kind of person on your team. It’s about modeling the way – setting an example as a leader” Cook said Burtron is a motivator and leader, and he knew immediately he’d go directly to Burtron for the position when Hauk resigned. “Todd built a well-oiled machine in the fire department and I really respected his leadership style,” Cook said. “Todd practices servant leadership and we wanted those principles, which Todd instilled so well in the fire department’s culture, to be spread throughout our entire city organization.” 

meet todd burtron Married to wife, Tami, of 20 years Two children-Weston, 13, and Anaka, 16 Member of the Sheridan School Board Hobby: Learning how to play the bass guitar Family fact: Weston was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in February 2011, and Burtron told his son he wouldn’t go through it alone. “I even dropped 80 pounds in five to six months because we’ve changed our eating habits together. I told my son if he couldn’t have it, I couldn’t have it.”

Burtron said he works 10-hour days and usually works through lunch to provide equal balance to both his positions. According to Burtron and his coworkers, Burtron’s ambition to expect more from the city and its employees instilled a substantial change in how government departments operate in Westfield. “Westfield citizens pay their taxes and they trust we’re going to do the right things with those dollars,” Burtron said. “They trust we’re going to be here every day trying to enhance their quality of life, infrastructure, community development and public safety. We are trying to redefine how local government is viewed and how it operates by our actions.”

more about burtron’s positions Although chief of staff and fire chief are separate positions, it doesn’t mean Burtron gets two separate salaries. Does Burtron have two salaries? No, Burtron’s total salary for working as Westfield fire chief and Westfield chief of staff is $115,000. Burtron’s base salary as Westfield fire chief is $87,000, and he receives a $25,000 stipend for the additional role as chief of staff.   How was Burtron’s salary determined? Like all employees, Burtron’s salary is determined and approved by his supervisor. He reports directly to Mayor Andy Cook. Cook, with approval from the City Council, determines Burtron’s

salary. Burton oversees the creation and management of the city budget along with the Council Finance Committee, a three-member committee made up of city councilors, Jim Ake, John Dippel and Bob Horkay. Did Westfield Fire Dept. get more money because of Burtron’s position? No, Westfield Fire Dept.’s budget decreased 2 percent for 2012, due to a 10-year pension plan being fulfilled and the reduction of operating costs Burtron has a strong role in creating the budget, but the Council Finance Committee reviews all of the departments’ budgets, including Westfield Fire Dept.

Paige Henry and State Representative Jerry Torr

WHS student learns from lawmakers editorial@youarecurrent.com A Westfield High School student stood amongst state lawmakers during the 2012 session of the General Assembly as an Indiana House Page. The Indiana House of Representatives offers an opportunity for students between the ages of 13 and 18 to visit the Statehouse and experience a full day of legislative activity. Paige Henry and her fellow pages were able to see how the state legislature works in a behindthe-scenes tour. The selected group also works alongside legislators, legislative assistants and

interns. On session days, pages experience how a bill becomes a law as they watch legislators on the House floor debate issues. Students also have the chance to tour the Statehouse, see where the Governor works and observe floor sessions of the House, Senate and Supreme Court chambers. The Indiana House Page Program is an educationally-based learning opportunity for students to gain a better understanding of the lawmaking process by meeting their state representative and witnessing how laws are made.

geocaching 101 What is geocaching? Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game. Players search for hidden containers, called geocaches. Players use GPS-enabled devices and/or geocache applications downloaded to smartphones. How is the game played? Players can register for a free basic membership at geocaching.com. After completing the account players can visit the “hide and seek a cache” link on the page , www.geocaching.com/seek, where they enter the zip code of the area they’d like to geocache in. Players are then able to view a list of coordinates for that area. Players enter the coordinates in a handheld GPS device (GPSs designed for cars will not work) or a downloaded app for smartphones. What are the rules? Some “caches” are not regulated and can be placed on private property or unsafe locations; however, local government departments, including Westfield Parks and Recreation Dept., have been developing geocache policies to protect geocachers and residents. The process to get an official geocaching permit is simple: Visit www.westfield.in.gov to download a permit application. One can pick up and/or hand in the application with a photo of your cache. Approved caches will have a Westfield Parks and Recreation logo sticker.

DISPATCHES » More price hikes to come? – If you’ve been pondering plane tickets for a spring break or summer trip, it’s time to put those thoughts to action. Last week Delta Air Lines initiated a fare hike of $4 to $10 across the bulk of its U.S. route system. “This comes right on the heels of Delta initiating a $20 fare hike on long-haul flights and JetBlue doing a shorter-haul hike last week,” said FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney. “It looks like we’re tracking almost like last year, which was basically ‘Let’s get a bunch of fare hikes in early’.” -www.travelkit.msnbc.com » Tasty new blends – Winemakers used to blend two or more grapes so the strengths of one could make up for the weaknesses of the others. Now they do it to create new flavors. The Miami Herald “highly recommends” one such blend, the 2010 Big House Red from California-based Big House Winery. The wine is an out-ofcontrol blend of petite sirah, tempranillo, syrah, Grenache, malbec, mourvedre, nebbiolo, tannat, souzao, aglianico, barbera, zinfandel, petite verdot, cabernet franc, charbono, nero d’Avola, sangiovese, sagrantino and other esoteric reds, the paper says. It’s soft, dark and full of powerful dark berry flavors and spice. Priced at $10 a bottle or $22 per 3-liter box. -www.miamiherald.com » Asian garden pest – The Asian longhorned beetle has recently been attacking trees in the U.S. The larvae girdle tree stems and branches, which can lead to dieback in the crown, possibly even killing the tree. This import has long been killing hardwood trees in China. Here in the U.S., the beetle prefers box elder, Norway, red, silver, sugar and sycamore maples, among other trees. The only way to eliminate these beetles seems to be removal and burning of the infested trees. Infested areas must be quarantined. -www.almanac.com » Worst airport terminals – Travel site Frommers.com created this list of its picks for the 10 worst airport terminals in the world. 1.

Beyond the sunset By Leonid Plotkin The world is a treasure chest, and we all take from it according to our needs, our opportunities and our abilities. In the mountains of east Java, men manually extract sulfur from the crater of a smoking volcano. They commence work in the dark, in the last few hours before dawn. I walk with some of them on the steep, slippery ascent up the mountain. The miners proceed silently, slowly, deliberately. Two hours later, we stand on the crater rim of the Kawah Ijen volcano and start a precipitous descent down into the crater itself. It is a landscape that could have been wrought by the imagination of Jules Verne or Tolkien: Middle Earth. Inside a jagged, craggy depression, an eternal geyser of sulfur smoke gushes forth from the depths, and clouds of the noxious gas drift across a jade-green lake of sulfuric acid. Down in the crater, I watch them chisel blocks of yellow sulfur from the mountain side. The wind shifts and instead of rising into the atmosphere, the acrid smoke fills the crater and envelops us all. I can’t breathe. My lungs burn. My eyes sting. The miners continue working, protected by nothing more than a bandana tied across the nose and mouth. Their baskets full, they head back up to the rim of the crater; I follow. A miner’s pay depends on the weight of sulfur he brings down

the mountain, and wanting to earn as much as possible, the men push themselves to the limit. Many carry loads of nearly 200 pounds. They can barely take a few steps forward before they must pause for a moment to rest. Up on the crater rim, the miners sit for a cigarette. They chat, joke and laugh. Mining is a well-paid job in this part of Java. Happy and content, they set off down the mountain. I remain sitting, marveling at the incredible moun-

tain panorama spread all around me. Someone takes sulfur and is happy to have it, and someone else just takes in the views … grateful he doesn’t need sulfur. Leonid Plotkin left his career as a lawyer to travel the world, and if he had to identify somewhere as “home,” he said it would be Carmel. Reach him via email at i@ leonidfotos.com.

COMMENTARY By Keltie Domina January is a great time to set new and exciting goals for ourselves; however, increasing awareness of your manners is a timeless and beautiful goal. Is that on your list this year? Quite simply; treating others with respect, compassionate and kindness would make this world a far better place to be in. How many times did you say “May I” today, instead of “give me”? Did you answer your cell phone when you were already talking with someone else? These and other etiquette topics will hopefully make you laugh, encourage you to say a simple please and thank you and bridge that gap to a more polished you. Plus, a cooking tip or two! I look forward to your comments and questions. Now that I’ve introduced myself, let’s talk etiquette for introductions. Introductions may be simple, but they can provoke some of the most awkward moments if you forget your manners. As you make your way in the social or business world always remember to introduce yourself and your company to others. There is usually that awkward time when you are standing with a friend waiting for them to introduce you. After about 30 seconds, your friend or colleague has either forgotten their name, so they are embarrassed to introduce you, or they just do not know it is polite to introduce others who may not know you. Just smile and extend your hand and say, “Hello,

I am Susan.” This way you have taken care of the business of introduction, you feel better and now you are included in the conversation. There are many steps to a proper introduction.  Dignitaries and lay people first; ladies before men; the most important person’s name first. But, baring all those specialty rule, just make the introduction. Making people feel included and a part of any conversation is key to great communication. What do you do if you cannot remember someone’s name?  Just be honest. “I am so sorry, I know we met last week, but I am having a hard time remembering your name… I am Susan.”  And then you can share a laugh, shake hands and go on… Now to introduce two tastes that are never awkward: If you love a good basic pairing for wine and food it doesn’t get much better than sea bass with Sauvignon Blanc, duck breast with burgundy or a classic juicy steak with a bold Cabernet Sauvignon. These are just a few to get you started, but I did learn one important aspect of wine pairing when I was in culinary school. Go with what you like. So be adventurous  and enjoy the journey.  Keltie Sullivan Domina is an etiquette consultant and the owner and executive chef of Kelties Restaurant and Catering in Westfield.

DISPATCHES » St.V among top 15 – St.Vincent Health was identified in the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals: 15 Top Health Systems study as one of 15 best health systems in the nation. The faith-based health system is the only one in Indiana and the Midwest to be honored in the large health system group. The annual, quantitative study uses objective, independent research and public data sources and aggregates individual hospital performance into system-level data. » CDC: Binge drinking, STDs up – Binge drinking may be a bigger problem in the U.S. than previously thought and may contribute to a high prevalence of positive STD tests, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The report states that about 38 million American adults (or about one-sixth) binge drinks about four times each month. Binge drinking was defined as consuming four or more drinks for females and five or more for males within a short period of time. Aside from the more obvious consequences of binge drinking, the report points out that it has also been linked to a higher prevalence of positive STD tests. -www.privatemdlabs.com

» IU Health first to use 3-D – IU Health Saxony Hospital is the first hospital in central Indiana and one of the first in the U.S. to offer 3-D breast tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening. Patients benefit from the system’s exceptionally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient comfort and a groundbreaking 3-D tomosynthesis platform designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance. » Mental decline could begin in 40s – A new study suggests that age-related cognitive changes—which may in some cases herald Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia—are under way as early as our mid-to-late 40s. Researchers in Europe tracked the mental function of more than 7,000 British civil servants for a decade, and they found even the youngest participants, who were between the ages of 45 and 49 at the outset, generally displayed slight yet measurable declines in short-term memory, mental reasoning and verbal facility over the course of the study. The declines were too small to be noticeable in everyday life, and were detected only through a battery of tests the researchers gave the participants every three to four years. -www.health.com

Facial aging and tummy tucks ANTI-AGING By Barry Eppley Q: Is the Lifestyle Lift effective and how long will it last? A: The Lifestyle Lift is just a franchise term for a limited facelift or a jowl tuck-up procedure. It is a scaled-down version of a more complete facelift or a neck-jowl lift. The more relevant question, however, is whether this type of facelift approach is right for you. The vast majority of unhappiness with Lifestyle Lifts, QuickLifts or any other form of “minifacelift” was because the patient wasn’t a good candidate. Their facial aging issues were more advanced and they should have had a fuller facelift to get the kind of result they were expecting. Understandably, patients are tempted to choose a facelift operation based on how it would be done (local or IV sedation), a short recovery and/or a low cost, rather than choosing a facelift operation that better fits their actual needs. This is the real issue you should be thinking about. Q: I am a 32-year-old woman who is in serious need of a tummy tuck. I have had three children, the last two by cesarean section. I have a large amount of lower stomach skin with a lot of stretch marks. It makes my belly button look odd and almost buried with the loose skin around it. If I get a tummy tuck, will the doctor be able use my C-section

scar? I need a tummy tuck so bad that if I had to have a new scar above the C-section scar, I could live with it. But I would like, if possible, to keep it low and just have a longer C-section scar. A: This is a common question and concern, one I think about when doing a tummy tuck in every woman with a C-section scar. I always want to use the C-section scar whenever possible for two reasons. The first is the one which concerns you, and that unsavory cosmetic issue of adding another scar to the one you already have. But a more important consideration, and the one I am most concerned with, is the survival of the skin between the two scars if the C-section scar could not be used as part of the tummy tuck. The intervening skin between these two scars may not have a good blood supply, and could either not heal well or actually die … which would obviously create a significant after-surgery complication. For this reason, every effort is made to use a C-section scar in a tummy tuck, and if you have as much loose skin as you describe, this would not be a problem to do so.

DISPATCHES » Satisfaction not guaranteed – Only 21 percent of customers who bring complaints to customer service end up satisfied, according to a recent study by Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Another study, by consulting firm Accenture, found customer satisfaction with service has declined across the board, from the amount of time it takes to resolve a problem to the politeness of reps. That’s because customer service is often designed as “a kind of firewall against the customer,” says Emily Yellin, author of “Your Call Is (Not That) Important to Us.” -www.smartmoney.com » Burger King to your door? – Burger King, trying to regain its place as the nation’s second-largest fast-food chain, is trying out home delivery in an effort to boost sales. This fall, the Miami-based chain started testing delivery at four restaurants in the Washington, D.C., area. The company says it will expand the test to 16 more locations by this week before deciding whether to make it a large-scale effort. According to the company Web site, deliveries cost $2, and there is a minimum order of $8 to $10, depending on the market. -www.cbsnews.com

» IRS ups audits of millionaires – New IRS figures show 12 percent of millionaire earners were audited last year. That’s an increase from 8 percent in 2010 and 6 percent in 2009. For those making less than $200,000, the rate has stayed steady at around 1 percent in recent years. IRS officials said the growing audit rate for high earners is aimed at demonstrating that the tax code is being enforced fairly and is unrelated to President Barack Obama’s recent proposals to boost taxes on the rich. The White House and congressional Democrats are expected to continue taking similar populist stances with the approach of this November’s presidential and congressional elections. -Associated Press » Overlooked tax deduction – Generally, you can only deduct mortgage or student-loan interest if you are legally required to repay the debt. But if parents pay back a child’s student loan, the IRS treats it as though the money was given to the child, who then paid the debt. So, a child who’s not claimed as a dependent can qualify to deduct up to $2,500 of student-loan interest paid by Mom and Dad. And he or she doesn’t have to itemize to use this deduction. The parents can’t claim the interest deduction even though they actually foot the bill. -www.dailyfinance.com

Controlling the conversation, in a good way BUSINESS By David Cain Today I’m going to let you in on a secret. It’s the secret to how you can control a conversation and keep people listening or reading. It’s a communication secret that dates back to the beginning of time. Let’s start with writing. If you want people to read it, it’s simple. All it takes is this little nugget of knowledge. Here goes. When you write something, make sure every sentence makes you want to read the next sentence. Guess what? The same thing works for when you talk. Make sure every sentence spoken makes your listener want to hear the next sentence. But that’s only part of the secret. The other part, and just as important, is how you accomplish this monster task. How do you make sure every sentence makes you want to read or hear the next sentence? Here is the second part of the secret – you have to know your audience and only talk about them. Talk about their problems, their fears, their interests and their lives. Talk about yourself and they won’t care about the next sentence or,

www.youarecurrent.com

for that matter, they won’t care about your current sentence. The currency of communication (and marketing) is valuable, relevant content. What’s valuable and relevant is in the eyes (and ears) of the recipient. Whether it’s your kids or a business prospect, talk about yourself and you are tuned out. Talk about them and you are fascinating. Talk about them and you’ll be greeted by nods and agreement. Remember, whether you are talking or writing, your opening statement or headline is just to get the first words heard or the first sentence read. From there, each sentence should draw you to the next sentence. Each sentence should make your audience want to hear the next. And the best way to accomplish that is to practice a “you” mentality, with “you” being the reader. David Cain works at MediaSauce, a digital media and online marketing company in Carmel.

Fighting SOPA and PIPA TECHNOLOGY By Ken Colburn What’s the latest with the Internet censorship bills in Congress and what can we do to help defeat them? - Joseph There are two bills in Congress that should concern everyone who values an open and uncensored Internet; SOPA (H.R. 3261) which stands for the Stop Online Piracy Act in the House and the Protect IP Act (S. 968) in the Senate. When you dig into the details, it’s just another example of what is causing so much dissent in our political process – powerful lobbies pushing for legislation clearly not in the best interest of the average citizen, through legislators that have no clue about technological issues. The Motion Picture Association of America, along with most of the power brokers in the TV and entertainment industry, are the instigators of this overbearing legislation and there seems to be total disregard (or ignorance) for the obvious collateral damage they would cause. There are plenty of laws on the books already that allow copyright holders to force sites to take down individual postings that infringe on their content, but the powerful entertainment industry wants a bigger hammer. When a Web site has been identified as one in violation, the law would mandate it get added to a Domain Name System blacklist that would no longer allow users in the U.S. to access it,

and for credit card processors and advertising systems to cut all ties with the site. DNS translates your alpha Web site requests into the actual numeric equivalent known as the Internet Protocol address. For instance, piratebay.org is one of the targets of this legislation because of its notoriety for hosting just about any content you don’t want to pay for. If this legislation passes and the Web site is blacklisted, then typing piratebay.org into your web browser will render a censorship notification, but if you type 194.71.107.15, you would still be able to get to the site. The pirating community has already created huge lists of the IP addresses for all the Web sites they presume will be the target of this legislation, rendering it completely useless for those that don’t and will never pay any attention to our laws. Fighting piracy is critically important, but the unintended consequences of poorly-crafted legislation could have a huge impact on the future of the Internet. I urge anyone reading this to contact their representatives at http://americancensorship.org to voice their opposition immediately, as both of these bills come up for a vote on Jan. 24 and Jan. 25.

DISPATCHES » Why does my cat bite me? – Many pet owners call this common behavior “Love biting,” but feline behaviorists have given it a more formal name: Petting-induced aggression—and it’s a poorly understood topic. It may be a manifestation of so-called statusinduced aggression, in which cats seek to control a situation. There may be some neurologically significant negative stimulus associated with being petted at length that affects these cats in particular. These cats may be especially subtle at letting humans know when they’re unhappy, so that their change in attitude appears more sudden than it truly is. The good news is that this behavior does not necessarily mean you can’t interact with your cat meaningfully. -www.vetstreet.com

Five things to do before you call the vet about your dog PETS By John Mikesell 1. Take your dog’s temperature. Purchase and keep an appropriately-sized rectal thermometer on hand. Have some Vaseline or K-Y Jelly to put on the thermometer. This makes insertion more comfortable for the dog. Digital models may be easier to read than the reliable glass and mercury models. Plus, they have the added benefit of a built-in timer. On the other hand, the glass models don’t have batteries that can die, rendering the thermometer useless. If you’ve never taken your dog’s temperature, ask your vet or your groomer to show you how. 2. Note the dog’s temperature. When your dog is not feeling well and you’re upset, you might not remember the temperature you just observed. Write it down along with the time. Keep in mind that “normal” temperatures for dogs vary a bit from approxi-

mately 100.5 F to about 102.5 F. It would be good to know your dog’s normal temperature, so take it when he or she is well and resting. 3. Check the color and wetness of the dog’s gums. Familiarize yourself with the color of your dog’s gums when he’s well so you know what’s “normal” for he or she. If, when it’s not feeling well, its gums appear abnormally pale or white, the dog may be in or nearing shock. Brick-red gums can indicate a fever or heat stroke. Yellowish gums may mean the dog is jaundiced. When a dog is healthy, its gums should be glossy and wet. If they are sticky and dry, the dog may be dehydrated. 4. Check his capillary refill time. Sounds technical, but it’s easy. Capillary time is how long it takes for the blood to rush back to a spot that you press on the gums. To check, press on a spot on the gums for about three

seconds; when you release pressure, the spot should be pale where you pressed the blood out of that tissue. The spot should quickly disappear from view as the tissue refills with blood – within about a second. If the spot remains pale for several seconds, your dog’s blood pressure may be dangerously low. 5. Make sure you are able to describe any deviations in your dog’s diet, elimination pattern and demeanor. Make sure you know the type and brand of food you have been feeding your dog. You should know how much your dog is usually fed and note any deviations. Also, you should be able to discuss his most recent bowel movement (when it happened and the quality of the stool, whether that was different than usual) and urination (what time, how much and color).

• Start with a clean slate: Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate! Make sure to focus on areas where dry skin is common. Knees, elbows, feet, and ankles are prime areas that soak up extra product. • Pick a self-tanner that works with your skin tone: Self tanners come in green base and orange base tones. Come into Salon 01 and ask one of our trained estheticians what sunless tanning product is best for you. From sprays to creams, we carry it all! • Use a friend: You may not be able to see your back, but everyone else can. Enlist the help of a friend who can easily apply the product where you can’t reach. Rather not recruit help? Opt for a spray applicator such as Quick Tan sold at Salon 01. The spray will easily reach areas that a lotion wouldn’t. • Be patient: It’s best to allow the product to sit on the skin for at least 15 minutes before dressing. Showering or extensive sweating should be avoided for at least 48 hours after an application.

Enjoy!

Room addition creates expanded laundry room REMODELING By Larry Greene Original laundry room: This home was built in 2006 in the Village of West Clay subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The current owners are the original owners and went through the new building process in 2006. Unfortunately, they were never happy with the laundry room, which was small and lacked functional space. Blending in with original home: The designer determined the best solution was to relocate the existing exterior heating, ventilating and air conditioning compressor unit to the opposite side of the house. This allowed free space for the new room addition. The design team created a room addition onto the side of the house, which added a modest amount of square footage and added tremendous functionality. According to the homeowner, “The designer listened to what we wanted and came up with a design that allowed for a lot of usable space. You would never know it was an addition, inside or outside. The space looks like it was built with the original house.”

Salvaging cabinets: The design team was able to salvage the existing cherry cabinets in the former laundry room. These salvaged cabinets were then combined with a few new cabinets to create a new expanded laundry room. New bathroom: The design also created a new half bathroom and kitchen pantry as part of the project. The new bathroom added a separate powder room for the rear part of the home. A new bank of tall pantry cabinets then provided much-needed storage off the kitchen.

If walls could talk

DESIGN By Sue Faulstich This time of year, a lot of us look around the place we call home and wish that with the snap of our fingers, every holiday decoration would magically be packed away. Taking down Christmas wreaths and putting away Mr. and Mrs. Claus can sometimes leave a homeowner thinking about those much needed homeimprovement projects we never quite seem to find the time for. Before we know it, another 12 months have passed and those projects remain incomplete. Well, if one of your resolutions for 2012 is to refresh the colors of your home, fear not – I am here to help. Since it is impossible to be clever while writing about paint, I hope to keep your attention by giving only the most pertinent information regarding this subject. All joking aside, as paint manufacturers keep adding more and more products to sort through, it will be beneficial to know the basic finishes when having a conversation with a paint store clerk. The success of every paint job hinges on knowledge, preparation and a fair share of elbow grease. The following facts and opinions refer to interior latex paint: • Matte – Often referred to as ‘flat,’ a matte paint finish does not reflect any light, but rather absorbs it. While this finish does make it easy to hide imperfections, in my

www.youarecurrent.com

opinion, it makes a wall seem dull and lifeless. These same qualities, however, make it the perfect choice for almost every ceiling. Eggshell – Literally named for its resemblance to the sheen of an eggshell, the slight shimmer of this finish is a good choice for imperfect walls. It will hide blemishes like a matte finish will, yet it is washable. Satin – Slightly more glossy than an eggshell finish, a satin finish is often advertised as being ‘scrubbable.’ Usually, the higher the gloss of a paint finish, the more durable it will be. Satin is a perfect choice for the walls of high-traffic areas in a home. Semi-gloss – This finish is my first choice for cabinets, doors and trim. Rarely would I recommend anything else for these interior items. Be aware, DIYers – the shinier the surface, the more evident a flaw in the surface will appear. High-gloss – Commonly used for furniture, this shiny finish takes on an almost reflective quality. High-gloss finishes have a very dramatic look and are popular in contemporary interior settings.

Final result: The homeowner commented, “For my wife, having another refrigerator and a pantry are the favorite parts of the addition. For me, it is the functionality and that the new design opens up for the back of the house.”

Frisky business for film Scouting for cookies LAUGHS By Dick Wolfsie Mary Ellen and I had our tickets and we were ready for a little rest and relaxation. After a busy holiday season, this couldn’t have come at a better time. We parked the car, made our way to the counter and confirmed our reservations. First, we endured the necessary security checks. An agent did a wand sweep to be sure there was nothing prohibited on us. I emptied my pockets and Mary Ellen’s purse was checked. We walked down the aisle and found our seats. An announcement was made for all cell phones to be turned off. “This is kind of weird, isn’t it?” Mary Ellen asked. “All this to see a movie premiere at the mall?” So what was the concern? We were attending an exclusive showing of “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” about 18 hours before the rest of the world would be able to view it, so the movie execs didn’t want patrons in the audience recording any portion of the film. As a result, all videotaping devices were prohibited, but grandma could tote her knitting needles, and Dad could bring his hacksaw. So what if Mom was packing a small handgun? A cannon was permitted that night, but not a Canon. Because of being frisked at the theater entrance, I had trouble concentrating during the film. The storyline spelled trouble for me from

the very beginning: disguises, flashbacks, flashforwards and a sprinkling of subtitles. Before we left the house that evening, I read a plot synopsis online, just to give me a head start. It didn’t help. The review said it was a mystery, wrapped in a mystery, inside a mystery, which would mean I would feel like a pretzel, tied up in a knot, inside a blender. From research, I knew what a tinker was. But there wasn’t one tinker in the entire movie. Come to think of it, not a tailor or a soldier, either, although spies were coming out of the woodwork. At the end of the picture, someone tries to kill Colin Firth. I had no idea why, unless maybe they saw him in “Mamma Mia!” As we were leaving, I decided it was OK to question one of the agents who patted me down earlier, though I hated to bother him behind the counter while he was serving the buttered popcorn. He reconfirmed the producer’s concern that someone might record a few scenes and post them online. But this movie has little chance of going viral on YouTube. Not only were there no tinkers, there were no adorable kittens, either.

GETTING A HEADACHE FROM TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH ALL YOUR HR WORK?

LAUGHS By Mike Redmond It’s Girl Scout Cookie time. That’s the good news. The bad news is it’s Girl Scout Cookie time. Good: They’re cookies. Bad: They come up for sale right after your doctor has read you the riot act for overindulging in sweets during the holiday season, Oct. 31 to Jan. 6. Now, before we get too far into this adventure, let me state for the record I have nothing but admiration for the Girl Scouts of America. I think it’s a wonderful organization teaching young women to lead lives of service and meaning, and also of sitting near the exits of grocery stores with big, baby-seal eyes imploring you to buy two or three dozen boxes of cookies to go with the Fig Newtons and Oreos you just paid for. Really, as sales tools go, you don’t get much stronger than a cute kid in a scout uniform looking up at you from a card table with a hand-lettered sign decorated with glittery rainbows and stick-on unicorns. It is just about irresistible. I bring up the grocery store thing because it seems to be the only time you see actual Girl Scouts selling actual Girl Scout Cookies. The rest of the sales seem to take place in the work-

place and are conducted by parents – four, five, six at a time, lining up at your desk with sales forms and pens, apologetically mumbling something about helping their kid sell enough boxes to send the troop to Camp Swampenmucky and promising to buy something from your kid when his or her turn comes around – assuming someday you’ll have a kid. You shrug your shoulders, take the pen and buy, because work is difficult enough and who needs more friction over whether you bought a box of cookies, especially if the parent in question happens to be your boss? Of course, we have to ask ourselves whether the cookies are really THAT good, or if they just seem to be because they come around but once a year. Maybe it’s a little of each. Whatever the reason, it’s time to order. Good news for the scouts. Bad news for diets. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline.com.
