Westfield firefighters learn to survive By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Westfield firefighters have been hard at work the past two months learning how to survive if the unthinkable happens. The 25-hour fire ground survival program, developed by the International Association of Fire Fighters, teaches firefighters how to escape if they get lost or trapped in life threatening fires. “This is the direct result of firefighter fatalities across the United States and Canada,” Westfield Fire Dept. Division Chief John Barrett said. Barrett said training examples included exiting a window without burning yourself, getting through small walls and spaces and exiting areas with downed electrical wires. “It’s so important to firefighter’s survival. We train and plan

for the worst and hope for the best,” he said. “This training gives them confidence so when they come into a situation they’re not used to, they are collected and cool to deal with under pressure.” The training includes five sessions in the classroom where firefighters learn prevention and survival skills and two full days of hands-on training. Barrett said the department had four certified trainers teaching. “We practice it over and over again so they gain confidence,” he said, adding that a final course tests all the weeks of training in one burning building scenario. Barrett said the entire department completed the training, and this style of training will continue for the 70 firefighters on staff. “We train year-round, our guys are always being trained,” Barrett said. “This will be implemented into routine training every 12 weeks.”

Parks

Washington Township expands MacGregor Park By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com MacGregor Park is now complete thanks to the purchase of the remaining 40 acres of land from the Shelia Beals Limited Partnership, Washington Township Trustee David D. Gill announced recently. The park began in 2001 with a gift of 41 acres from Shelia Beals MacGregor, who intended it to be a nature park much as it was when the first settlers arrived. “The new land will fit seamlessly in the existing park and carry the same conservation easement agreement between the Washington Township Parks and Recreation and the State

Dept. of Natural Resources,” Gill said. “This will enable WTPR to protect and preserve almost 100 acres of natural forest in its original state forever.” The purchase was greatly aided by an award from the State’s Bicentennial Nature Trust Fund specifically designed to acquire park land throughout the state. Gill praised the cooperation between his staff and the DNR. “With the growth in Westfield along the U.S. 31 corridor and the Grand Park Project, a significant plot of natural land in its midst has been protected for the county for generations to come,” Gill said.

Ameriana Bank thanked for honoring city employees

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Mayor Andy Cook recently thanked Rob Garrett and Ameriana Bank for sponsoring the city’s Going the Extra Mile award. The city began the program as a way of recognizing employees for going above and beyond in helping within the community or within their departments or fellow employees. All city employees are eligible and nominated for this award by their peers. The GEM committee then selects who they feel best deserves the award each month. “I was approached in late 2010 by a former city employee, Eric Becker, who has since passed away. He approached Ameriana because of our continued involvement around the city and told me about this award and asked if we would consider being the sponsor,” Garrett said. “I believe we began the sponsorship in January 2011 and have continued ever since.” Each month, Stephanie Baumann sends Garrett the name of the winner and Ameriana Bank has a certificate printed and presents it to the recipient along with a $25 Visa gift card at monthly meetings attended by many city employees. “There is also a plaque that hangs in the West-

Cover Story

At age 20, Eriq Zavaleta is pursuing his dream of playing Major League Soccer for the Seattle Sounders FC By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Eriq Zavaleta has been a soccer player his whole life. “Ever since I can remember, there was a soccer ball at my feet. I dribbled it around the house until my mom told me to put it away,” Zavaleta said. “I loved the game so much and still love it today.” As a Westfield High School freshman, Zavaleta made a life changing decision that dramatically altered his soccer career. He decided to leave high school and go to Bradenton, Fla., to train in the U.S. Soccer U-17 national team residency program. “Locally, there’s great talent around town, but this was an experience unmatched by any,” he said. “It was a really tough decision to leave home, but I had to risk it and see what it was all about.” His residency program team took Zavaleta to more than a dozen countries to play soccer and brought a position change – from forward to defender. Zavaleta said it was a tough transition to be away from his family, but the time spent training helped form the player he is today. “Ultimately, my success began there,” he said. “Sacrifices really make your career.” Zavaleta’s cycle with the national team ended before his senior season. After two years away from home, he returned to Westfield. “I wanted to give my friends and family the opportunity to see me play,” Zavaleta said. “It was a really great experience to play for the school and represent Westfield.” Following graduation, Zavaleta went to Indiana University, where he started every game his freshman and sophomore years and played a key part in the Hoosiers' eighth national championship win in December. “I went to Indiana to reinstall the tradition of soccer,” he said. “We had a good group of players. We had a really fun run in the NCAA tournament – very few people expected us to win.”

After winning the collegiate title, Zavaleta signed a Generation Adidas contract, which allows him to earn more than the MLS minimum and does not count against the roster limit. He could make as much as $100,000 per season. On Jan. 17, Zavaleta was selected 10th by the Seattle Sounders FC in the MLS draft at the Indiana Convention Center. The Sounders traded their 16th pick in the first round as well as allocation money to Toronto FC in exchange for the 10th overall selection. “I was nervous not knowing where you are going to go,” Zavaleta, who was projected to be picked in the top five, said. “Could it be 100 or 200 miles away to Columbus or Chicago? You don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m ecstatic to be a part of a good organization and coaching staff. I know I am put in a great situation.” Zavaleta is headed toward a soccer hot spot, albeit 2,000 miles away from Westfield (Seattle finished third last season in the Western Conference.). The Sounders’ average home-game attendance last season was 43,144 – nearly double that of the next-highest MLS team. “I’m looking forward to playing for such an incredible team and such an awesome fan base,” he said. “The fan base in Seattle is unmatched by any MLS club, and to be able to be a part of that is going to be an honor.” Another honor for Zavaleta is playing for coach Sigi Schmid, who previously coached Zavaleta’s uncle, Greg Vanney, at UCLA in Los Angeles, and played with and coached Zavaleta’s father, Carlos. “I really couldn’t have envisioned it to go any better. This is the most ideal situation I could have,” he said. “I thought that this dream couldn’t get any better, and it has.” Where Zavaleta plays is not as important as getting on the field. He has played forward in high school and college and defender with the national team. “I’ve been successful at any position,” he said. “Whatever position I’m put into, I’m learning from pros around me perfecting their craft.” Before turning pro, Zavaleta had already compiled an impressive resume. In addition to the national team program, he played with the Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA academies. He also played in the U-17 World Cup and is in the player pool for the

He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing video games and reading to keep his mind sharp. “I spend a lot of time watching TV and catching up on my favorite shows.” Awards: Zavaleta was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the year after scoring 18 goals in 2012, the third-most in the nation. He assisted on the game-winning goal in the College Cup final to help the Hoosiers win its eighth national championship in December. He started all 46 appearances in his two seasons at Indiana, scoring 28 career goals.

Zavaleta hopes to one day represent his nation in the World Cup. “The U-17 World Cup was just a taste of the professional tournament. Since I made the jump to the pros, I have a greater chance to get there,” he said. “There are so many great players working hard to play for the national team. There’s a lot of hard work ahead of me, but anything is possible. I’m eager to work hard.”

Eriq Zavaleta’s coaches express their thoughts on his recent selection in the MLS Superdraft: “We are excited for Eriq to be going to Seattle, which is a great club. They have an excellent tradition and some of the best fans to play in front of. It is a great city and a great staff. They have some positional needs and Eriq’s chance to play will come sooner rather than later. Seattle is near the top of the heap when it comes to MLS franchises.” - Todd Yeagley, Indiana University head coach www.currentinwestfield.com

Prairie praise It is our position that Conner Prairie Interactive History Park should be commended for maintaining a balanced budget for the seventh consecutive year. Most interestingly, Conner Prairie balanced its budget without taxpayer support. About 323,000 people attended Conner Prairie last year through visiting such events as Headless Horseman, 1859 Balloon Voyage, summer day camps, school programs, Symphony on the Prairie, Follow the North Star and Hearthside Suppers. Nearly 9 percent of these visitors – 22,000 people – came through a free or greatly reduced admission. In September, Conner Prairie was awarded a $2.3-million grant from the National Science Foundation to create and distribute a model for integrating informal science experiences into exhibits and programs at historic sites and museums across the country. This project is underway, and portions will be unveiled this year. To quote President and CEO Ellen M. Rosenthal, “The Conner Prairie of today proves that a museum can engage adults and children at the same time. It is a place that creatively offers a wide range of imaginative techniques to inspire learning about history. And it is still a place of great beauty, with a landscape that moves us with reverence and awe.” Well said, and well done.

Table talk Commentary by Terry Anker We routinely share family meals. As an important component of this communion, each of us is expected to distill the events of the day into an update for those gathered. With both of our children, there was a noted progression as they came to understand the mechanics of how to communicate and why it is so very important in human relationships. As Carolyn and I would share the day’s travails, we would routinely turn to the growing boys seated with us and look to them to contribute their own comments to the conversation. Amusingly, they failed to fully comprehend that we were speaking of events that had actually occurred during the day and that we were not making up bed-time stories. Our eldest would tell wild stories replete with sound effects and animated countenance of his adventures with dragons. When the younger son grew to the same age, he made use of a similar storytelling technique, but his tales were based in near-fact.

He imagined things that might have, but didn’t, happen which led to all sorts of fun – and some household confusion. With the passage of time, they came to understand that the goal was to share actual information and not to entertain with a yarn; and while we have missed the news of pterodactyl attacks, we have settled into a solid pattern of give-and-take. “How was your day?” is more than a polite exchange. We are each, to the best of our ability, responsible for communicating. As the kids grew old enough to invite friends to join us for a family meal, their unsuspecting compadres were, in their turn, expected to share their own news. Some initially struggled. Eventually, all came to appreciate the attention – and interest – of the adults at the table. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Officers of the law, as well as lawmakers, last week got a boost in their efforts to quell the continued uprising of sales and use of synthetic drugs. A proposal by State Sen. Jim Merritt (RIndianapolis) to give police officers and prosecutors new tools to crack down on dangerous dope passed the Senate Committee on Corrections and Criminal Law by a 6-3 vote. According to the bill, synthetic drugs include a substance a reasonable person would believe is a synthetic drug; a substance a reasonable person would believe is being sold or purchased as a synthetic drug; and/or a substance that a person knows or should have known is intended to be consumed and that consumption is intended to cause intoxication. Merritt, the author of the previously enacted state Lifeline Law, now has put forth an idea that also would modify the existing definition of “intoxication” under Indiana Code to include impairment by any substance, excluding food and food ingredients, tobacco or a dietary supplement. Indiana’s current definition for intoxication only includes impairment by certain substances, such as alcohol and controlled drugs. We support his bulldogged approach. The senator said he believes the new definitions would give cops and prosecutors the tools necessary to arraign synthetic drug manufacturers and dealers who are slightly changing the chemical makeup of individual substances. It also will help get more impaired drives off our thoroughfare, which, at times, are dangerous enough. Merritt aims to send a sledgehammer of a message to dangerous motorists and those making, selling and using the artificial drugs. It’s a laudable effort, and we hope the measure sails through the Senate and House without delay, then is signed into law by Gov. Mike Pence. The Legislature last year made Spice, or artificial marijuana, illegal, and now it’s time to make the rest of the synthetic garbage illegal.

OK, I’ve decided to give her a try Commentary by Danielle Wilson I’ve reached a decision, people, and no, it has nothing to do with plastic surgery. I will, from this point on, unto death do us part, pretend to love our dog, Libby. Because in reality, unless I want to get creative with a shovel and some lime, she’s here to stay (I’m kidding of course! I would never use lime). And if I don’t make peace with that, I’m going to endure a miserable 11 to 13 years. Here’s my line of thinking: She’s family. Whether I like it or not (and I really don’t), my children and my husband love her. And since I love them, the transitive property of canine ownership says I must in turn love the dog. Therefore, I shall accept my role as one of the primary caregivers and start pulling my weight when it comes to feeding, walking, and yes, even playing with Libby. To that end, I have begun taking her out for trips around the neighborhood. I get some exercise, she gets some “Danielle� time, and my kids think I’m awesome because they didn’t have to go outside in freezing temperatures. Fortunately for you, my avid fans, loving the dog doesn’t mean I can’t continue to complain about her. You only have to read my previous 300 columns to see that the people I love most provide the best venting fodder. So don’t worry,

you can expect many more sordid tales of Labrador retrievers gone awry. Hopefully what you won’t be hearing are stories about how I blame Doo for carpet stains, midnight awakenings and weaponized dog hair clogging the air vents. He was a pretty good husband in the early years with kids, putting in his fair share of diaper changes, Spagettios clean-ups, and pacifier retrievals; I can do the same for him now that he has the baby. So I’m adding to my New Year’s resolutions list “Pretend to love Libby until I actually do.� And I will eventually. I’m not so cold that I can’t look into those big brown eyes and feel nothing; it’s just that I’ve resisted because once I admit that I like her, I’m all in. I’ll have to cry when she’s hurt and mourn when she eventually leaves us. I bawled like a baby when my son’s gecko of four years died. A gecko! Imagine how I’ll be when my children’s eighty-pound dog passes! Look, I’m not promising to become a dog person, but I am promising to try loving Libby. Peace out.

Opinion

On a serious note Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

This week, I’m taking a break from my usual rantings, sometimes generously referred to as a humor column. Instead, here’s a little reflection on why one week in January gave me a lot to think about. It began on a Friday at the Indiana State Museum where I gazed in awe at originals of both the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment. Having just seen the movie Lincoln, the experience was even more meaningful. People around me were chatting about how old the documents were, but I didn’t have that sense. When I was about 6, one of my elementary school teachers invited an elderly man to speak to our class. He must have been close to 100-years-old because he told us that as a child, he heard President Abraham Lincoln speak in 1862. This story is not only evidence of how old I am, but also how young this country is. And the rest of my weekend was more proof of this. The night after my visit to the museum, my wife and I attended a performance at the IRT of “Jackie and Me.” In the play, a young boy goes back in time to 1947 (the year I was born) when Jackie Robinson became the first AfricanAmerican to play in Major League Baseball. Robinson was Rookie of the Year and won a Most Valuable Player award, but he couldn’t stay

in a hotel or eat at a restaurant with his fellow Dodgers because of his color. That was in my lifetime – maybe yours, as well. Lincoln might have expected a more tolerant America by the year 1947. After the play, a panel of baseball historians detailed more specifics of the bias that Robinson faced. Dodger great Carl Erskine, an Indiana resident and a close friend of the late Robinson, informed the audience of another life-changing event in his own life. At the end of Erskine’s professional baseball career, his wife, Betty, gave birth to Jimmy, who was born with Down Syndrome. In the ‘60s there was little understanding of the disorder – and no support or compassion for the child or his family. In Erskine’s new book, “The Parallel,” he writes that he is thankful for a major shift in attitudes toward youngsters like Jimmy. He compares Robinson’s plight with that of his son’s: “Jackie and Jimmy … have travelled a parallel journey far more alike than different … they were both striving for what was right. In the end what is right will always prevail.”

Weird old ladies

Commentary by Mike Redmond

My dog, Cookie, is 13-years-old, which moves her into the stage of life we call Senior Dogitude. Well, maybe that’s not the precise veterinary term. But it’s closer than the other phrase I am using for her current status: Weird Old Lady. She’s forgetful. Often she’ll stand at the back door, asking to go out and, upon getting her wish, do one of two things: Turn around and go back to her bed, or go out onto the back porch and stand there looking around until you remind her to do some business. Then she gets this, “Oh, yeah, now I remember,” look on her face, completes the mission and then finds a million things to distract her on the way back to the house. She’s possessive. Her water dish is her favorite thing in the world and she is not at all happy that the two cats, Charlie and Maynard, have decided Cookie’s water is the best in the house. Cookie has also decided that she loves catnip toys. It’s not uncommon to see her walking through the house with a catnip mouse hanging from her teeth. Weird. Or perhaps she’s just getting even over the water dish thing. She’s argumentative. If she comes up to you demanding the last bite of your pizza crust, and you tell her no, be ready to defend your position against a barrage of whines, growls, barks, grumbles, squeaks and mutters, not to mention the clackety14 | February 5, 2013

clack jaw action I like to call Dog Castanets. She’s gassy. Whoever coined the phrase “ripe old age” must have had a dog, because ripe is exactly the right word. No matter what she eats, whether the typical canine garbage diet or the super-premium Golden Age Formula dog food, it turns instantly to methane – lots and lots of it, too, and of the stinkiest variety. Remember a few days back when the temperature was down around 0 Fahrenheit? Cookie was in my office, sound asleep, floating dog biscuits. I had to open the windows. So, let’s add it up: Forgetful, possessive, argumentative, gassy. Good heavens. Cookie is behaving exactly like my mother. Well, maybe not exactly. As far as I know, Mom is not inclined to drink from the toilet when her water dish is empty, and neither is she known to snack on cat food. Other than that, though, the similarities are remarkable, except Cookie spends her days sleeping, while Mom watches basketball. They both, however, are fond of barking at passers-by.

Second City’s ‘Laughing Matters’ comes to Zionsville By Katie Franz • news@currentinwestfield.com

If you are looking for a good laugh this weekend, head over to The Second City performance, “Laughing Matters.” Zionsville Band and Orchestra Patrons, also known as ZBOP, partnering with Fanimation ceiling fans and Current Publishing, have organized the group’s return this Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Zionsville High School Performing Arts Center, 1000 Mulberry St. This will be the third year The Second City group has performed in Zionsville. The company’s website says the group aims to provide an escape from the “economic uncertainty, political gridlock, and dearth of Kardashians clogging up our televisions” through “much needed silliness and hilarious spontaneity.” The show will include both improvisational and scripted elements, and keeps the audience involved throughout. “There’s two to three improv games that we do throughout the show,” cast member, Eddie Mujica said. “The rest is scripted scenes but with moments that are improvised. We end every show with an improvised third act. That’s my favorite part of the night.” The Second City opened its doors in 1959 on the north side of Chicago and has since grown in reputation and location. The company has developed from a single stage to a multi-faceted enterprise of training centers, traveling troupes and resident performance groups in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. www.currentinwestfield.com

The company has cultivated a number of comedic stars, including Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Bill Murray, and boasts the largest training centers for improvisation and acting in the nation. Although The Second City has visited Zionsville twice before, ZBOP Chair Ann Pagano assures that the audience will be fully entertained. “Every year, it is a different show. New skits and, of course, improv is improv,” Pagano said. “We are hosting Second City for the third year because they attract an interactive crowd to the Zionsville Performing Arts Center and to Zionsville.” In addition to the show, Second City will offer two, 90-minute comedy improv workshops for all ages at 4:15 p.m. on Friday at a cost of $15 per person. “The workshops are very hands-on, not a

lot of sitting down. We try to keep the whole group up and going,” Mujica, who will be teaching the beginner group, said. “We start out with some warm-up exercises and some scene work, but then we tailor it to the group we have with us.” Classes are grouped by level, either beginner or advanced. Customizable small group workshops are also available by request. “It’s a good time,” Mujica said. “I think laughing is something that’s essential in everybody’s life, and, for these two hours, you can come and forget about anything else and lose yourself in the show and laugh along with us. We definitely enjoy being up there and hope you do too.”

Flight • R, 138 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd “Flight” is one of those movies that keeps throwing you for loops. Some of the loops are satisfying, while others just leave you discombobulated. The overall experience is worthwhile, even though I often found myself having difficulty getting emotionally invested in what was going on. Denzel Washington plays “Whip” Whitaker, a veteran airline pilot with a substance abuse problem. He drinks like a fish, snorts cocaine and carouses with a flight attendant mere hours before climbing into the cockpit. Once he’s in the captain’s chair, though, Whip is all business – seasoned, cocksure and steady. In fact, when the plane suffers a serious mechanical failure, he performs a virtually impossible maneuver to land the plane, saving more than

100 lives. He’s lauded as a national hero. But when an investigation reveals that he was stoned at the time, Whip retreats into a cocoon of self-loathing. He falls in with Nicole (Kelly Reilly), a heroin addict decades his junior, as they help shore up each other’s crumbling identities. Things slowly build to a big government hearing to assign blame for the crash. Will Whip be lauded or reviled? “Flight” is less about one man’s public journey from hero to reprobate than his descent into himself.

apricots, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cayenne. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until reduced by about half. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Remove 1/4 cup of the glaze for basting, and set the remaining aside. Place the salmon filet on the greased broiling pan, and brush with glaze. Broil 3 inches from the heat for 8 to 12 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Gently turn over once during cooking, and baste frequently during the last 4 minutes. Serve with remaining glaze.

Place white chocolate in a separate bowl, and when the dark chocolate has melted, place the bowl of white chocolate over the pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Be sure to remove from heat as soon as it is mostly melted, white chocolate can be sensitive. Dip strawberries into chocolate, and let the excess drip off into the bowl before placing on waxed paper to set. When the strawberries have all been dipped in chocolate, dip a fork into the white chocolate, and drizzle back and forth over berries to stripe.

HEALTH

Wellness

The next big training routine Commentary by April Conard I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor when Zumba was just starting. It is now one of the leading forms of group exercise. Well, I am pleased to say that I have now found the next big thing in fitness, and like Zumba, this one has staying power. It is called TRX suspension training. Basically, what that means is you are utilizing suspension straps from a single anchor point against your own body weight. The TRX’s single point attachment provides the ideal mix of support and mobility to train strength, endurance, balance, flexibility and core all at once. Since this program works a lot of muscles, it must be for only the elite athlete, right? Wrong. Suspension training is for all levels, all paces and all goals. Because you can instantly modify resistance by adjusting body position, suspension training workouts are safe and effective for people of all fitness levels. Sounds great, except that you do not know the first thing about what to do with this “contraption.” Well, that is where I come in. I, along with my fellow instructors, have just completed a course on group suspension training, which means we are instructing you the entire class. Added benefits to a class setting are that Riverview to celebrate cardio program Saturday – Riverview Hospital Foundation will host its Red Ball Saturday at Lucas Estate, 1142 W. 106th St., Carmel. The ball, with presenting sponsor BMO Harris Bank, will celebrate Riverview Hospital’s cardiovascular program. It will include “Heartfelt” remarks by five Riverview patients, dancing, tours of the Lucas Estate and fundraising for the Riverview Hospital Foundation, which has secured more than $4 million in donations for cardiology since its inception. A welcome reception will begin at 5:45 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m. Cost is $150 per person and $2,000 for a corporate table. For more information, contact Trish Oman at 7767317 or toman@riverview.org.

the instructor is there to immediately answer questions and guide your workout to what is safe for you. Besides, working out in a group is always more fun! Still not convinced? Let me ask you this, do you absolutely love your abdominals? Are you ready to show off your slim waist at a moments notice? All core, all the time - this is another one of the major benefits of TRX suspension training. Your center of gravity is located just above your hips. By changing your body positions you shift this center of gravity. Suspension training exercise techniques are designed to intentionally displace your center of gravity, which activates the core muscles during every exercise. Whether you are performing a row, lunge, or even a bicep curl, your entire core is engaged to stabilize and balance the body in a truly functional way. Adding TRX suspension training to your fitness regime is going to take your body to the next level. If you have hit the wall and the inches or pounds have started to stall, or you just want to see more definition, TRX is your answer. Noblesville resident April Conard is an NETA-certified trainer and Group Fitness Director at the Noblesville Athletic Club. You may contact her at nac@nacfitness.com

Believing the best

Commentary by David Cain

video of the person committing the crime, most people want to believe they didn’t do it. For products and services, a similar phenomenon exists. The first to the market, or the first to make the claim, generally grabs a share of the market that is challenging for an opposing view to overtake. The key, however, is to make sure the statement is bold and is the first. And, for longevity, it should be true! It’s hard to recover from bold lies and a purposeful deceit. Still, the lesson holds true: People believe people, and we all go against our instincts to believe the best in people. The best marketing is, therefore, arguably, people.

Lance Armstrong changed course and admitted to doping. After years of vigilant defense of his innocence, he drastically and dramatically changed course. After years, it looks like he was more of a LieStrong than a LiveStrong guy. Like O.J. Simpson, most people know on some level that with such firsthand evidence, he was probably guilty. However, within all of us there is a natural instinct to believe other people. It’s the underlying principle of ratings, reviews, word of mouth marketing and anything that leverages the people factor. It’s also a natural instinct to believe the first thing you hear. The O.J. Simpson trial started the same way as the Lance Armstrong saga – a firm and definitive statement of innocence followed by an unwavering commitment to that statement or claim. Once the statement is made, despite a Businesses gather to fight DOMA – The battle over the Defense of Marriage Act – which sets marriage as exclusively being between man and woman – is about to heat up. Marriott International Inc., Thomson Reuters, eBay and 10 other businesses are part of the Business Coalition for DOMA Repeal. – www.money.cnn.com

Alcohol and income – According to Arthur C. Brooks in the “Wall Street Journal,” a drink or two could mean a better pay grade. If you indulge in one or two drinks per day, you might make 10 to 25 percent more than those who don’t drink. - The Week presents Confidential Intelligence Briefing

Move the needle: Pareto principle Commentary by CJ McClanahan Imagine for a minute that you have a daughter who is selling Girl Scout cookies, and she is obsessed (or maybe it’s you who’s obsessed, but that’s another column) with outselling everyone else in her pack/troop/den/whatever it’s called. You have decided to spend four hours next weekend helping your daughter sell cookies. As you consider all the possible tactics for unloading Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos and Tagalongs, you brainstorm the following options; walk the neighborhood, drive to your relatives or get a table at the super busy Kroger in your neighborhood. Where should you spend the majority of your time? It’s likely that your neighbors and relatives will be an easier sell, but if you are truly committed to being the best you should tell your daughter to put on her biggest smile and spend the afternoon greeting thousands of shoppers at Kroger. In other words, 80 percent of your sales will probably come from 20 percent of your effort. The same is true in business. Over the years, I have asked hundreds of entrepreneurs an important question – “Do you feel that all of your customers are equally important?” Most professionals respond by telling me that every one of their customers gets the same great service. www.currentinwestfield.com

Tailored to a child/parent friendly environment.

That is just plain silly. Now, I do expect you to give all of your customers great service – but except for certain industries (health care, etc.), they should not all be treated the same. The truth is that some customers are far more important to your business than others, and until you figure this out, you will struggle to grow profitably. Most professionals and business owners have a handful of customers who buy a lot, never complain about the price and refer a lot of new business. These individuals are very different from the masses that tend to price shop your product/service, gripe about their experience and have yet to bring a friend to your business. The first group should receive the follow up phone call to make sure everything went OK. They should get a thank you card in the mail. They should get the best table in your restaurant. If you disagree with this advice, that is perfectly OK. Just recognize that you have a hobby and not a business. Identify your best customers and treat them like royalty. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Airline news for 2013 Commentary by Tracy Line Lately, all we’ve seen is change in the airline industry: higher airfares, mergers and fees, fees, fees. Experts agree that more changes are coming for 2013. Read on to find out what you can expect from the airline industry in the coming year. Smaller planes – 747s are so yesterday. Regional jets and turboprop planes are the new way to fly. Why? For the airlines, it’s a matter of economic sense. It’s cheaper to fly a small, full plane than it is a large, empty one. This trend has been going on for a while, and is here to stay. Fewer routes – Unless you live in a major city, getting where you want to go just keeps getting harder. According to the U.S. Dept. of Transportation, the airlines have slashed thousands of shorter flights (500 miles or less) in the past two years. This also means fewer nonstop flights. Rate hikes – I know you didn’t want to read this, but it’s true. Rick Seaney of FareCompare. com states airfare rates went up 7 times in 2012. Global Soap Project – There’s a group out there that takes used soap, makes sure said soap is reprocessed and then sent to areas around the world where people need it. It’s called the Global Soap Project, and it has more than 1,000 hotels taking part. – www.esquire.com/ blogs/mens-fashion/

He predicts rates will continue to rise unless oil goes down to and remains at $70 to $75 dollars a barrel. Fees for bags and other extras have also increased for 2013. But it’s not all bad… Cool new planes – Many airlines have added new planes to their fleets. And they’re considering customer needs while doing so. You’ll find larger overheads, roomier seats, and for those who can afford it, some very nice luxury options such as sleeping quarters, gourmet food and work desks. Financial stability – Profits are up in the friendly skies. And really, this is good news. If you have to fly, don’t you want to do so with a sound company that can afford to keep their planes running safely? Of course you do, it’s the only way to go!

A new style option – Out of tie options for the day? There are now two businesses out there, TieTry and FreshNeck, that rent out neckties like Netflix rents out movies, much like the joke from popular FX comedy “The League.” – www.esquire.com

Decorating When decorating goes to the dogs LIFESTYLE

Commentary by Vicky Earley Typically, it takes only one ring of the doorbell to realize that a new client has a dog. These prepackaged bundles of energy, unconditional love and unadulterated dirt are a mixed blessing when they live under the same roof as my clients. I am, however, a believer that you can live happily ever after with a pet – and have a lovely home, too. Knowing how the pooch lives in the home is fundamental. If the corner of the sofa is “his spot,” your designer needs to know. Preparing for the canine assault on furnishings goes far beyond a spray coat of stain repellant. Often, these applications are temporary and set Fluffy up for banishment to the floor. I often recommend indoor/outdoor textiles for upholstered furnishings in a pet-friendly home. They are sturdy enough to manage the rigors of muddy paws, slobber and any other puppy matter that is left behind. Tight weaves provide another defense. Before committing to a fabric, do your own version of a textile stress test. Scratch, poke and dig with a fingernail at a candidate fabric. If a fabric can withstand this endurance test, it is probable that it can stand up to the worst that Rocky can dish out. Silk and loose weave textiles are off limits unless your pup is trained to stay off the furniture and always does as he is told! Leather is an exceptional choice and works beautifully if

fur and dirt are the main concerns. Although it will scratch, leather is easy to clean and disinfect with a mild detergent. Regardless of material, pattern is a great disguise in the world of pet-friendly upholstery fabrics. If pet hair is an issue, select a fabric color that is close to the shade of Fuffy’s highlights. Flooring is the next element to consider. Wood and ceramic tiles are my first line of defense when pets are in the home. Regular cleaning and vacuuming takes care of nearly all the requirements. Of course, wood floors scratch but a few scratches can provide a warm, stately look in a room. Also, scratches are eliminated when wood is eventually refinished. Wool area rugs are excellent choices for their ability to hide dirt, repel moisture and handle the ongoing abuse of muddy paws. A pattern provides an additional layer of defense by concealing a multitude of doggy sins. For wall to wall carpet, a dense, cut pile rather than a loop carpet is best if Buddy has long nails. Keep these suggestions in mind when making design decisions, and your best friend will be out of the doghouse and sound asleep on his favorite chair!

Grammar Guy

Which is it: Either or neither? Commentary by Jordan Fischer I haven’t done a pet peeves column for a while, at least not one about my own annoyances, so I thought I would write a bit about the current grammatical mosquito, of sorts, which has been pestering me of late: the misuse of “either” and “neither.” I believe most readers already know the basics of using “either” and “neither. “Either” is used to signify that something is one or the other of two options. For example: “I will have either a sandwich or a salad for lunch.” “Either” can also be used to signify that something is both of two options: “You can find nice people on either side of the Mississippi.” “Neither” is used when something is, as my dictionary simply puts it, “not either” of two (or more) options. “Neither” is used in conjunction with “nor,” as in the famous (and unofficial) Postal Service Creed: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” To paraphrase simply: “Either” is used when something is at least one of the options presented, while “neither” is used when it is not. Where I hear people go astray, however, is using these words in response to negative statements. For example, Person A might say, “I don’t like driving in snow,” to which Person B would respond, “Me neither.” Except Person B often replies, “Me either,” cueing angst and gnashing of teeth on my part. It is a small difference, to be

sure, and certainly one that’s generally accepted in common speech (although I’ve heard wonderful tales that in England it isn’t). But grammar is nothing if not a cult of rules, and the rules here are clear: “either” is to be used when something is, “neither” is to be used when something is not. Since Person A has already stated that she is not a fan of driving in the snow, for Person B to agree, he would have to also make a negative statement. His options are “neither” or “not … either,” which is the meaning “neither” was developed to convey. Some examples: “I’m not going to the parade today, and Jon is not either,” could just as easily be written, “I’m not going to the parade today, and neither is Jon.” You’ll notice that “neither” almost always comes before a linking verb like “is,” and “either” will almost always be found after it. You will also notice, I hope, that saying, “I’m not going to the parade today, and Jon is either,” does not make much sense. Although there are occasions when “either” and “neither” can be used interchangeably, it’s important to remember that “either” shouldn’t be used in the negative without an attached “not.” It’s just not a negative adjective. That’s what “neither” is for. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com.

INSIDE & OUT

Indoors

Bath remodel considers owners’ long-term plans Commentary by Larry Greene

ORIGINAL BATHROOM: This home, located in the North Willow Farms subdivision on the north side of Indianapolis, was built in 1967. The current owners have lived there since 1972 and their reasons for updating their home were similar to many others: “There was nothing structurally wrong with the bathroom, but it was very dated. A few years ago, we decided we were going to stay in the house, so we began remodeling it. We started with the kitchen and then moved to the master bath.” DESIGN PHASE: The overall footprint of the space worked well already, therefore, the main goal of the remodel was to update. “The shower door was hazed over, the shower did not work well, and the grout was bad.” The designer was able to gain space from the toilet compartment to increase the size of the shower. SHOWER DETAILS: The new walk-in shower was tiled with a 12-inch by 18-inch stone tile in Grecia beige in a horizontal pattern. A storage wall niche was installed with a multicolored tile that matched the shower floor. The shower design included an arched doorway into the shower, which was tiled in 4-inch by

4-inch tumbled stone in a Sandlewood color. A frameless glass shower door also was installed. The new maple cabinetry in a cashmere finish with an auburn glaze was complimented with brushed bronze hardware. Venetian gold granite countertops were added, with rubbed bronze faucets. AGING-IN-PLACE: The owners plan to stay in their home for a long time and mobility and ease-of-use were a consideration in the design. A lower door threshold into the shower and a decorative yet functional grab bar were added to increase the usability of the space. FINAL RESULT: “Our favorite part of the new bathroom is the shower. Our designer knew our budget and helped us balance the materials and design costs so we could get the results we wanted.”
