COMMUNITY Development

F E B R UA RY

The Towne West Development is 120 acres of retail (A) and high-density residential (B). The area will also include cottages homes (B1). (Submitted design)

Landscape to change dramatically By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

More development is coming to the west side of Westfield. Last month, the Westfield City Council approved the Harmony development, 710 singlefamily detached dwellings, 270 multi-family dwellings and 170,000 square feet of commercial space in 277 acres on the west side of Ditch Road, between 146th and 156th streets. On Feb. 12, the council approved the Towne West development, 120 acres of retail space and high-density residential at the northeast corner of 146th Street and Towne Road. The rural intersection of 146th and Towne sits amid farm fields, but the proposed plan for the area transforms it to a commercial development, which includes a grocery store, medical offices, assisted living facility and a gas station. If a new gas station opens, it will be the only one on 146th Street from the Boone County line to Ind. 37 in Fishers. The project’s vagueness caused council member Cindy Spoljaric to cast the lone vote against the project. “There’s too much to get my head around,” she said. “There are not a lot of details.” Attorney Matt Price said the development

was at the point that it needed approvals before it could receive commitments. He said the residential area might include multi-family housing consisting of either apartments, attached senior living garden homes, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing care or office uses. Apartments, which are not age-restricted, will be limited to a maximum of 480 units. Price said a separate residential area would include cottage homes. Officials said permitted stores in the retail area included: general and medical offices, dental facilities, banks/financial institutions, restaurants, drug stores, gasoline service stations (not more than one stand-alone), grocery stores, a hospital complex or hospital campus, which may include in-patient and out-patient facilities, skilled nursing care, and medical-related research facilities. Price said no big box stores were proposed or allowed at the site. “There are a lot of options,” council member Steve Hoover said. “The ordinance does protect the city and neighborhood.” The proposal is contingent on Hamilton County agreeing to one right-in, right-out off of 146th Street, similar to the Harmony development, which is also on 146th Street and was approved by the city council on Jan. 14.

Concert will celebrate the ’60s

Kids clutter no more. And savings galore.

By Anna Skinner • news@currentinwestfield.com “The times they are a-changin’,” Bob Dylan once famously sang, and change they did. The 1960s are considered to be one of the biggest cultural changes in music history with the transformation of The Beatles, a “new and improved” Elvis, and the first real appearance of electric music when Bob Dylan plugged in for “Maggie’s Farm.” Alongside the revolution of rock were the space race, President Kennedy’s assassination and equal/women’s rights. It was a busy decade. Westfield High School plans to reenact the 60s in a rock concert in the high school auditorium on May 9. The idea was inspired by the annual American Pie blowout concert put on by Columbus North’s history teacher Ed Niespodziani. WHS teachers Mark Ewing, Jennifer Hasler-Troutman and Kurt Frederick worked with Niespodziani to create Westfield’s own American Pie and mesh education and the history of rock and roll together. This year’s theme is “The Times They Are a-Changin’” and is focused on none other than the 1960s. “We truly are providing a living history lesson for the community,” Ewing said. “Those who lived it get to reminisce about the past, and for our students, it is an opportunity to learn and discover through music one of the most important and turbulent time periods in our country’s

history. American Pie provides the ultimate link between history and rock and roll.” At this distinctive rock concert, students will perform songs by famous rock stars of the time like Bob Dylan, The Who, The Beatles, Aretha Franklin and more. “American Pie gives people the opportunity to take notice of those songs and in some cases re-live the gripping nature and power of music on our minds, bodies and souls,” Frederick said. Anyone from the Westfield community who has any comments on the fads, politics, movies, etc., of the 60s or wants to share their own personal story of where they were in the decade are asked to send them to whsamericanpie@gmail. com.

McCarty wins transportation challenge news@currentinwestfield.com Huntington University student and native of Westfield, Victor McCarty, was a member of the second place winning team, BikeIndy, at the seventh annual I-69 Collegiate Innovation Challenge. McCarty is a sophomore at Huntington University and is majoring in broadcasting. BikeIndy’s mission was to institute a commuter friendly and sustainable mode of transportation in downtown Indianapolis by planting kiosks of quality GPS-capable bicycle stations throughout the city that can be share-rented among Indianapolis travelers. The Grant County Economic Growth Council held the challenge Feb. 8 through 10 with 25 new students from Anderson, Ball State, Huntington, Indiana Wesleyan and Taylor universities. The Challenge took place at the Wyndham Hotel in Warsaw. Students were awarded an iPad2 for first place, $100 certificate for second place and $50 for third place. McCarty’s team was one of five teams that competed. Each team was made up of one student representative from each of the participating universities. The students were placed into teams and collaborated for less than 24-hours on a for-profit business solution to a social problem selected by students. This year’s social problem was resource allocation and efficiency in Indiana public transportation.

McCarty The teams then presented its solution to a panel of five judges from Indiana Municipal Power, Ginovus, Vistage, Insight 2, and Elevate Ventures. Following the presentations, the judges selected the winning teams based on criteria that included innovation, profitability and market potential. The purpose of the I-69 Collegiate Innovation Challenge is to encourage entrepreneurship among students along the I-69 Indiana corridor, provide networking opportunities for students and judges, generate creative ideas and allow for collaboration between the five universities.

COMMUNITY Cover Story Meet Tony & Chuck ★ Who: Tony

Tony Laurenzana, left, and Chuck Barrick at their new shop location, 120 Camilla Ct. (Photos by Robert Herrington)

Two men fight fads, chains and development to keep their craft alive By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com For more than three decades, Tony Laurenzana and Chuck Barrick cut hair at 301 W. Main St., just three blocks west of downtown Westfield. Today their shop, Anthony’s Barber Shop, sits vacant as one of the many business casualties of the U.S. 31 expansion project. Unfortunately, that chapter in Laurenzana’s life is not over – not yet. The longtime Westfield resident and businessman technically still owns the property because the state has not signed paperwork or paid him for the land. “I’m paying a mortgage and insurance on an empty building as the state’s money sits in escrow. I’ve been paying for six months,” he said. Laurenzana selected his property along Ind. 32 all those years ago because in real estate, it’s all about “location, location, location.” “You buy it on a main thoroughfare and the state comes along and basically wants to steal your property,” he said. “The problem I am having, if there was no place to go, I’d still be over there fighting the state to the last second.” Anthony’s Barber Shop closed its doors on Sept. 1, 2012. For the past six months, Laurenzana and Barrick have been at their new location at 120 Camilla Ct. Now named Westfield Barber Shop, it was the first business to sign a lease at the city-owned strip mall. “In 1972, my cousin owned the laundry-mat at the end,” Laurenzana said. When the two learned about the state’s plan to purchase their land, Laurenzana began searching for a new location in Westfield or Noblesville, where most of his customers are from. “We looked at every mall from Spring Mill to Hazel Dell. What they wanted for rent was way out of our range,” he said. “If it wasn’t for the City of Westfield, we’d be gone.” At Anthony’s Barber Shop, Laurenzana owned the business and Barrick leased one of the two red vinyl barber’s chairs. When the store relocated, Barrick bought the business. “I don’t see any difference,” Barrick said as Laurenzana nodded www.currentinwestfield.com

in approval. From Oct. 30, 2011, to Sept. 1, 2012, Laurenzana had his customers sign their name and provide contact information so they could be informed of the impending move. His book contains more than 600 names. “We’ve got a good customer base,” he said. So far, Laurenzana and Barrick have been pleased that most of their customers have continued at the new site and actually like the expanded parking lot and not having to park along Ind. 32. “I’ve been surprised; we’ve gained 40 new heads. We rely on new faces coming in,” Laurenzana said. Noblesville’s Ed Teal has been getting his hair cut by Barrick and Laurenzana for 25 years. “My hair is a little hard to cut and get it to lay right,” he said. Current in Westfield

Laurenzana and Chuck Barrick ★ Age: Tony, 73; Chuck, 62 ★ Residence: Tony, Westfield; Chuck, Sheridan ★ Birthplace: Tony was born in Beech Grove. While Chuck was born in Lebanon, he has lived in Sheridan most of his life. ★ Education: Tony graduated from Cathedral High School and Chuck is a graduate of Sheridan High School. Both attended and graduated from Indiana Barber College and were classmates, although they didn’t officially meet until years later. ★ Hobbies: Tony calls himself a gamer and enjoys playing Xbox 360. Chuck likes fishing and chasing his grandkids. ★ Best part of the job: “I like working for myself,” Tony said. Chuck, who is called a “people person” by his wife, enjoys meeting with the customers. Laurenzana began his career as a barber in Westfield on Feb. 28, 1972, after leaving his job in the banking business. “My brother was a beautician and talked me into becoming a barber,” he said. “In the banking business, it’s all about who you know. I could see the writing on the wall.” Laurenzana and Barrick began working together in 1981. “It’s about like a wife and husband,” Barrick said. “I take it a day at a time, and it’s worked that way for 32 years.” “He’s like family. We can trust each other and that’s hard to do in today’s world – find someone you can trust,” Laurenzana said. The two disagree on who called whom in the beginning, but Laurenzana had been working by himself at Anthony’s Barber Shop 10 hours a day, six days a week for eight years. While talking with one of his customers, Laurenzana said he was looking at hiring a second barber. The customer knew Barrick and suggested the two get in contact. “I was driving 53 miles to Marion to cut hair for my uncle. After two years it was wearing on me working 12-hour days,” said Barrick, who comes from a family of barbers including his grandfather and his father, Bud, who has been cutting hair in Sheridan since 1952. As much as they enjoy their jobs, both said barbers were a dying breed. Laurenzana and Barrick have faced three adversities in their barber careers – losing their business location, the long hair fad of the late 60s and the boom of chain hair-cutting shops. “We retained enough customers to make a living,” Barrick said. “There was a time when we stood behind the chairs from when we opened to when we closed. When Great Clips opened, it knocked (business) down quite a bit.” “I used to put a sign out that said, ‘We fix $6.99 haircuts,’” Laurenzana joked.

Know More Westfield Barber Shop is at 120 Camilla Ct., behind Tom Roush Budget Center on Ind. 32. The shop is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Wednesday and Sunday. Owner Chuck Barrick said the shop doesn’t take appointments. “We never have,” he said. Regular haircuts are $14, $12 for senior citizens and beard trims are $5. February 19, 2013 | 11


VIEWS Opinion

Civic show scores a foxy hole-in-one

Car talk

It is our position that the automobile seems to be taking a back seat as the primary form of transportation among the new generation. The August 2012 issue of Motor Trend magazine reported that young people are showing a remarkable decrease in the desire to own a car and even to drive a car. Based on a Frontier Group study, “Transportation and the New Generation” by Benjamin Davis and Tony Dutzik, the article notes that the share of 14-to 34-year olds without a driver’s license was 26% in 2010, up from 21% in 2000. . . The same age group walked to more destinations in ’09 than in ’01, and the distance they traveled by public transit increased 40 percent. While these statistics among the younger generation are interesting, is a decline in automobile use realistic among the sprawl of the suburbs? Access to the Monon Trail, an increased number of well-marked bike lanes and more sidewalks along main thoroughfares is a good start. More communities (i.e. Frankfort, IN) have adopted Complete Streets policies that promote integrated transportation planning for all modes of transportation; cars, transit, bikes, pedestrians, etc. Mass transit discussions are taking flight, however, can old dogs learn new tricks in their lifetimes by embracing walkable communities?

Put pedal to the metal for transit Commentary by Christine Altman

With a bill being considered in the Indiana General Assembly concerning mass transit, we’ve reached a milestone, but we can’t slow down. HB 1011 would let you vote in a referendum to decide whether transit is funded. It also would lay the groundwork for the process and organization needed to give Central Indiana the kind of public transit system it deserves. That’s a big step in a process, but it’s certainly not the final victory. We’ll need a majority of legislators to support HB 1011. And we need your help in making that happen. Certainly, the legislators have heard the arguments for improved transit. Residents from across the region have told them they want to get to work, the store, the doctor, the park and more without having to get into their cars. Employers and older residents could also get better access for different reasons. The good news is that a plan is in place so that work can begin as soon as the public

approves transit funding. Created by Indy Connect, a partnership of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization, the Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority and IndyGo, the plan would put more local buses on the streets – reducing wait times and extending hours of service – and add new rapid transit service throughout the region. Contact your legislators and let them know you want the opportunity to decide how transit will be funded. Sign a petition in support of transit by going to www.cirta.us and clicking on “Sign the petition.” In other words, put the pedal to the metal and help us get this effort across the finish line.

Civic Theatre has a regular laugh riot on its hands with current production “The Fox on the Fairway.” Written by Ken Ludwig and debuted in 2010, it is even more uproarious than his “Lend Me a Tenor,” which served as Civic’s first show last season at The Booth Tarkington Theatre. “Fox,” at times, will leave you belly-laughing, as the theatre company over-delivers on the hilarity of a fictional golf-tournament wager. We found the acting and the set superb, something we’ve come to expect from Civic performances; we’re officially spoiled and we’re officially sponsors/believers. The show runs through Feb. 23, and if “today” is Saturday (delivery day for Current this week because of the Presidents’ Day holiday), then you have five more opportunities to see the show. Do yourself a favor and go get a good, hearty laugh from a performance that is, without a doubt, the stage version of a hole-inone.

I need a 27-hour day, please Commentary by Danielle Wilson There just aren’t enough hours in the day. I’ve been so overwhelmed, in fact, that I am just now sitting down to pen this column, less than 20 hours before my deadline. Even my yoga class couldn’t settle me entirely. If you have kids, I’m sure you’ll relate. For starters, I’m trying to manage four children in four different athletic programs. Not surprisingly, none of them wanted to do the same thing, darn it, so my husband and I must hold morning briefings over who has to be where and when. It’s become sort of a sick logic problem: If Geoffrey has to be in Noblesville for indoor soccer practice and Andrew has a swim meet at Purdue, how will Corinne get to her volleyball game in Lawrence by five so that Maddie isn’t late for basketball in Carmel? And of course, when our kids decide they’d also like to try art club, French club, the Green Team environment club, winter track prep, saxophone and dance (“If I’m going to be on Broadway, mother, I simply must take ballet, tap and jazz!”), what do we do? Well, just what you’d expect from parents who clearly have issues saying “no.” We sign the permission slip, pay the fees, and add six more events to the calendar. If simultaneous on-time arrival at various parts of the state wasn’t challenging enough, I’ve thrown in my own ball of crazy. In addition to the afore-

mentioned yoga and my day job, I thought it’d be fun to coach, volunteer at a food pantry and make some extra cash by tutoring. (The book sales just aren’t cutting it, and I still have my heart set on these fabulous black riding boots!) And Doo has his own hands full with work, the house, and our new puppy. He also thought now to be the perfect time to quit smoking. I know, I know. We made our king-sized bed, now we must lie in it. It’s just that sometimes I wonder if I really am going to lose my mind. That or develop severe lower back issues from the amount of time spent in my dilapidated minivan. Even my phone has decided to throw in the towel, having determined yesterday that desperate texting to organize last-minute carpooling was just too much trouble, thank you very much. At least I can wallow in self-pity and know that some of you will empathize, even while judging me. Parenting is tough, and schlepping kids around town is exhausting, but I’m certain we’d regret not helping our children explore their interests when possible. So we’ll suck it up, invest in Doan’s, and pray that three hours miraculously get added to each day. Peace out.

I know why beagles run away Commentary by Dick Wolfsie A couple of weeks ago, I threatened to throw out my wife’s copy of Emily Post’s “Etiquette,” a compilation of advice on proper comportment, updated periodically by the descendants of the late manners icon. I have now decided the book may be a valuable addition to our library, not because I have any intention of changing my boorish ways, but because the volume is a gold mine of potential columns. Proper humor protocol requires that you take advantage of an opportunity like this. One of the chapters is about appropriate demeanor when visiting a home with servants. The authors observe that many people have questions in this area. Yes, I have a question: How come I don’t know a single person who has servants? I skipped those 10 pages. In this edition of the book, the writers claim that the basic rules covering a weeklong visit to a friend’s home have never changed. “Easy or not, you must conform to the habits of your host family… have meals at their hours, eat what is put before you and go to bed according to their schedule.” This is similar to the advice found in The Idiot’s Guide to Joining a Cult and is likely why so many beagles run away from home. On some of the issues Mary Ellen takes a

different point of view. The authors say, for example, that even if your hostess has not begun to eat, once several people have been served at the table, it is OK to pick up your fork and begin. I tried that once and my wife also picked up her fork… and stuck it in my thigh. Punctuality is important when it comes to dinner parties. To prevent guests from showing up late, it is suggested that the host “ask invitees to come about a half hour before you expect them to arrive.” I read that six times, and I’m still not totally sure what it means. If you try this idea and your friends start ringing the doorbell while you are still in your underwear, you may need to rethink the concept. The chapter ends with a cautionary note. “Overnight visits absolutely require written thank-you notes.” I couldn’t agree more. I spent a weekend at my sister’s house in New York recently and despite what an awesome houseguest I was, not a word of gratitude from her in almost a month. I thought our mother taught us better.

Commentary by Mike Redmond I admit it. I buy things on impulse. I seldom go through a grocery checkout without picking up a Kit Kat bar or a pack of Doublemint, and I once came home from a quick errand with milk, bread, and a new Pontiac. Anyway, while it occasionally has led me to some silly purchases (the Pontiac was a lemon), I can’t call impulse buying it a fault. Especially not today, because I (impulsively) just bought … A tractor. I suppose this would be as good a time as any to point out that I live in the city, in a very urban neighborhood full of very urban Victorian houses with very urban small yards. It is not what you would call a tractor-friendly environment. So on the surface, this was an extremely stupid thing for me to do. But this is no ordinary tractor. This was my grandfather’s Oliver Row Crop 60. This little Oliver, built in the 1940s, represents Grandpa McKenzie’s giant step away from horse-drawn agriculture, and that makes it enormous in my eyes. Just seeing pictures of it reminds me of my early kidhood, when going to visit Grandma and Grandpa on the farm – the farm! – was something you looked forward to all year long. Grandpa didn’t mind kids crawling onto the

tractors and pretending to drive. Unless, of course, he was using them at the time which, in a sense, is how one of his tractors carried me into family legend. It was a summer morning, and for some reason a whole bunch of McKenzies were at the farm. Somehow, I managed to be alone when Grandpa came chugging in from the field on his “big” tractor, an Oliver Row Crop 77. He gestured for me to join him and ride along. After a spin around the barn, he stopped and let me off. “Now, don’t tell the others,” he said, “or I’ll be giving rides all day.” I promised. And then thirty seconds later went running up to my cousins, shouting “Grandpa gave me a ride on the tractor!” All of which explains, to me anyway, why I had to buy this tractor when it became available. I didn’t want it to pass out of the family, and maybe by restoring it I could make things up to Grandpa a little bit, and of course be the envy of my neighborhood. So it’s an impulse buy. So what? It has meaning. Although I still don’t know where I’m going to keep it. Or what I am going to do with this nagging notion that I’d also like a 77.

Curtain’s up on the classics at Wafford Theater

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com “Field of Dreams” taught us, “If you build it they will come.” Noblesville businessman Jim Wafford has built a 30 seat intimate theater in a vacant building that connects to his other businesses, Logan Street Signs & Banners and Noblesville Trophies, at 1744 S. 10th St. “I always had a dream to have a little theater where people can come and enjoy themselves,” Wafford said. “At the park, people would tell me they wish there was a place they could go and see old movies all the time.” Wafford said the purpose of the theater was to raise funds for the Free Classic Movies in the Park series he puts on for the community. This will be the third summer Wafford is presenting the classic movie series, which began during a conversation with Noblesville Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Brandon Bennett. During the discussion, Bennett told Wafford that the parks department budget had been cut and they would be showing fewer movies the next year.

The Basics Wafford Theater, 1744 S. 10th St., will show classic movies at 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Cost is $3 with most concession items for $1. “We’re trying to keep concessions low and people’s spirits high,” owner Jim Wafford said. www.currentinwestfield.com

“I saw a need for free family entertainment, and no one else is doing it,” said Wafford, who also shows films at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds during the winter. “I love classic movies. I’m kind of romantic. I just like the older dress. I wouldn’t mind living back there. There’s a lot of class.” Before screening a film, Wafford must contact his representative to get licensing rights. Movies cost Wafford $200 to $400 each screening. To air “Casablanca” to 113 people in 2011, it cost Wafford $405. “The more awards it won, the more expensive the movie is,” he explained. “Most people don’t realize you have to pay for movies.” To pay for the licensing agreement, Wafford rearranged his advertising budget and has sought help from businesses to sponsor the film series. To lessen the amount coming out of his pocket, Wafford is using his theater to raise funds to support his free movie programs. Another way Wafford is trying to raise money is with a DVD recycling program. He is accepting donations of movies that he is reselling for $5 to $10. “One hundred percent goes to support Movies in the Park,” he said. Besides being a theater, the multi-use room is available to rent for meetings or clubs. The theater’s chairs and risers can be removed or replaced with table and chairs depending on needs. Elizabeth Boase, a member of the Central Indiana Real Estate Investors Association, has already used the room for a meeting.

“A PowerPoint looks great up there,” she said of the theater’s giant screen. “It’s really good for teaching a small class.” Wafford said hardcore gamers also can connect their preferred platform and play their favorite videos on the 14-foot by 7-foot screen. The theater also has two 46-inch televisions mounted on the sides of the screen. “I hope to raise half of our funds by renting it out,” he said. “I can’t wait to sit down and watch a good movie on it,” Gary Bartunek said. Wafford Theater will show classic movies at 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. “We will offer more showings if the crowds come,” he said.

Upcoming Schedule ★ Tuesday – Two Movie Tuesday with

“Captain Scarface” (1953) and “The Racketeer” (1929) ★ Wednesday – Western Wednesday with “My Pal Trigger” (1946) ★ Thursday – “Cheers for Miss Bishop” (1941) ★ Friday – “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” (1952) ★ Feb. 23 – Sinisterly Bad Theater Saturday with “Cat Women of the Moon” (1953) and “The Atomic Brain” (1963) For more information and movie schedule, visit www.waffordtheater.com.

‘Game of Thrones: Season 2’ • Not rated, 545 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd When it comes to cinematic adaptations of monstrously huge fantasy literary franchises like “Harry Potter” and “The Lord of the Rings,” there are two schools of thought. On the one hand are people who think they run too long and are self-indulgent – the sort of folks who joke about “LOTR” having five endings. Then there are those like myself who love to see every subplot and nuance of our beloved books captured onscreen with a slavish devotion to detail. For those, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is the nirvana of sword & sorcery fealty. Season 2 saw a considerable ramping up in the world war overtaking the land of Westeros, as the death of King Robert Baratheon left the

succession to the throne in dispute. The narrative generally circles around the competing claims of three clans: the rich and power-hungry Lannisters, the gruff but noble Stark northmen and the Baratheon brothers. The show does deviate from the book in ways both big and small, such as Robb Stark’s speedy romance and marriage. But the story takes on a grandiose, epic feel as it builds toward the huge battle of Blackwater.

What possessed me to do this?

How an elder law attorney decided to play hostess to 300 caregivers

Commentary by Carol Applegate Registered Nurse and Elder Law Attorney As an elder law attorney and registered nurse, I’m often in a position to provide my clients with a wide spectrum of advice and ideas. It’s a sometimes daunting task assisting families navigate the complex and confusing waters of Medicaid, Medicare and guardianship. But there are times when I get some great tips and ideas from clients. That happened earlier this year when the daughter of a client – mired in the task of caregiving – suggested I read, “A Bittersweet Season: Caring For Our Aging Parents – And Ourselves.” “You have to read this, Carol,” she said. “I just could not get through all this if I hadn’t read this book.” And so I did. I read Jane Gross’ best selling book that details her own journey as a caregiver as well as providing insight to and actual tactics on managing that process. As someone on the front lines of elder issues with family caregivers, it became immediately clear that this book was a wealth of knowledge presented in both a compassionate yet objective way. And, I wanted to share this message with as many people as I could. That was early last spring; six months later, we are in the final stages of preparing for our Voice of Aging Family Caregivers’ Conference scheduled for Feb. 26 where we anticipate 300 attendees. In addition to the keynote presentation by Jane Gross, we have put together four break-out sessions on topics ranging from The Hardest

ing for a loved one today or anticipate doing so in the future, this conference is intended to provide access to some of the best resources in Central Indiana, not to mention advice on coping from health and social service professionals. I am thrilled and excited to be able to present this program. I am confident that those facing the challenging and even consuming days of caregiving will come away with a wealth of knowledge and renewed vision of their very important role.

For more information and for a full roster of current sponsors, log on to www.thevoiceofaging.com or call Applegate Elder Law at 522-1325.

Conversation is the First One to Getting Your Life Back: A Mindful Approach to Your Caregiver Journey. We will also be gathering exhibitors representing some of the most respected service providers in Central Indiana. We are even assembling a toolkit that every attendee will take home with them that captures the information they’ve received and to which they can add their own information as time goes on. Until you’ve been in the role as a caregiver, it’s difficult to appreciate how overwhelming it can be to be responsible for the care of a loved one. Not only is the caregiver stressing daily over trying to make the best decisions possible for their loved ones, but they’re dealing with internal issues related to guilt and a lost sense of balance in their own personal lives. Whether you’re car-

DOUGH Business

The problem is in the ‘no’ Commentary by David Cain Songbirds sit on the limb and sing a sweet song, happy to be cute as their whistle brightens the sunshine to a crisp glow. The eagle cruises high in the sky like royalty, a powerful presence. The chicken pecks around the pen. The chicken, well, the chicken might become dinner. My kids always ask to do new things. “Can we…” is the start of a lot of sentences at our house and, unfortunately, “no” can become the easy answer. It’s easy because it allows you to move on quickly. It’s unfortunate because “no” also shuts down the possibility for a “yes” and that yes might be where the opportunity lies. The yes is where the learning happens. My failure as a parent lies in taking the easy route and saying “no.” If you say no

enough, people begin to stop asking. It’s the same at the office, too many negative answers stop the questions and more often than not, the opportunities lie with the questions. Questions challenge you; questions are the offense in your game. The questions knock you off center and create a closer look at what you are doing. The questions allow you to learn and grow. The questions are for the eagles. Songbirds, eagles and chickens are each a feathered fowl. But, the songbird only sings and the chicken gets eaten.

It’s easy because it allows you to move on quickly. It’s unfortunate because “no” also shuts down the possibility for a “yes” and that yes might be where the opportunity lies.

LIFESTYLE Grammar Guy / Travel

Conditional grammar isn’t unconditional Read the fine print of flash sales Commentary by Jordan Fischer A lot of people don’t know this about me, but I almost went to school for computer programming. This might not seem like it has to do with grammar, but trust me: with a little more than 350 words, I can tie anything together. One of the first pieces of computer syntax you learn in basic programming is “if-then” statements. In computer terms, if you press the “K” button on your keyboard, then a “K” will appear on your screen. If the computer’s internal clock reads 7 a.m., then it will conduct an automated virus scan. Like most aspects of programming, “if-then” statements are based on an element of grammar: conditional sentences. During my explanation last week of comma splices, I found myself using conditional sentences frequently, and so I thought it would be appropriate to examine them this week. Conditional sentences are used to express implied or hypothetical situations and their consequences. As with our computer, in a conditional sentence if one thing is true, then another thing will happen. For example: If I do not go to work, then I will lose my job. If I do not wash my clothes, then they will become dingy. If I do not watch Star Trek, then I will miss out on a lot of great television. (That last one is a subject of some debate.) There are three main types of conditional sentences in English: implicative, predictive (or hypothetical) and counterfactual (or unfulfilled hypothetical). So far we have only talked about implicative sentences: If

“A” happens, then “B” will happen. Implicative sentences are used for certainties. Hypothetical/predicative sentences are used for possibilities. For example: If there’s a zombie outbreak, civilization will collapse. Although it is a possible scenario, a zombie outbreak does not necessarily mean a collapse of civilization. Thus, the sentence is hypothetical. The last sort of conditional sentence, counterfactual/ unfulfilled hypothetical, is used for statements which are obviously false or unlikely. For example: If I were a betting man, I’d say this will be a mild winter. The understanding is that the speaker is not a betting man, and therefore does not wish to predict the season’s weather. This form is often used to state things which you aren’t going to do, or which aren’t going to happen. Before I leave you, I want to note that the conditional sentence is one occasion in which commas may be used without coordinating conjunctions. Because the first part of a conditional sentence is a dependent clause – “If ‘A’” – and not an independent clause, a conjunction is not needed to attach it to the main clause – “Then ‘B.’” Also, note that “if ” is not the only way to start a conditional sentence: “unless,” “should,” “were” “provided that” and “as long as” are also viable options.

During the last few years, flash sales, or time-limited offers with a high discount, have truly evolved. Websites like Living Social and Groupon have recently expanded to include travel discounts. The question is: Are the travel deals worth it? The answer: It depends on whom you ask. Ask someone who bought one, and they’ll say yes. Ask me, and I’ll say you get what you pay for. Flash deals are just another marketing tool. However, I tend to be skeptical. So in all fairness, I’ll say this: For those who scavenge carefully, yes, sometimes flash sales can be a deal. The devil is in the details. All offers come with strings attached. When it comes to travel deals, be aware of the following: Expiration dates. Companies offer flash sales for two reasons: to get rid of unsold inventory and because they realize a percentage of purchasers will never redeem the coupon. Know when your voucher expires and above all else, use it! Limited benefits. You may not receive the same amenities with a flash deal as you would when booking directly with a hotel. Some all-inclusive resorts offer flash deals but restrict the included meals to their buffet. Spa resorts that normally include treatments and classes may not include such services in a flash sale. Read the fine print and know what you’re getting. Restrictions. Your offer will be for a specific room category and dates. Don’t expect a room with a view for a holiday week. Even if the resort has rooms available, if they aren’t in your category (read: cheapest rooms), they are not obligated to give you an upgrade, and most likely won’t. If you can be flexible, and just want to get away on the cheap, a flash sale voucher may fit the bill. If you’re particular, or can only travel in prime season, skip it.

Consider the splurge's purpose Commentary by Vicky Early It happens to all of us. An innocent afternoon of browsing leads to the discovery of that one thing that turns our head, patters our heart and won’t leave our thoughts. Now, all that is coming between us and the coveted decorating item is a stealthy price tag. Can a thing whose purpose in this world is as elemental as decorating our home ever be worth the financial splurge? The answer is always, “It depends!� If the heart’s desire is the latest trend, close your purse, put your wallet away and bid the item farewell. Fads and trends translate to temporary and short lived and the high price tag is unnecessary. Fads can be color as well as style. If your accent color is orange, it is wiser to feature the tangerine hue in less expensive pillows than in custom window treatments. If it is a core piece of upholstered furniture, the splurge becomes an investment. Quality can’t be faked and is evident in upholstery through comfort and longevity. A cheap sofa might withstand the rigors Winter style on the cheap – It’s possible to look great this season without destroying your budget. Try plaid, a toasty, colorful option. Some jackets, like Forever21’s geo bomber jacket, can be found for less than $25. – www.living.msn.com

of 6-year-old twins waging war for a brief six months while a quality sofa will resist the fallout of sibling battles for six years or more. Often, it is art that speaks to our heart but carries the price tag that speaks to our conscience. Original art by its nature has intrinsic value and has the potential for gaining value throughout time. If it is a print under glass that carries the hefty price tag, hang it back up on the store wall and back away. Your bank account will thank you if you consider unknown artists who are just grateful to make a few dollars for their creative efforts. Your home will be grateful for the interest that comes with original art. Does the item that speaks to you fill an actual need? If you have an endless collection of vases but need lamps, another vase won’t help you reach the goal of a complete room. Unless money is not an issue, walk away.

February is canine oral health month and the perfect time to discuss that good oral health is important to a pet’s overall wellness. Unfortunately, for many consumers, it often falls well below bone, joint and skin care on their priority list. However, studies have shown that between 75 and 80 percent of dogs have some periodontal diseases by the time they turn 2-years-old, leading to increased veterinary visits and, in many cases, costly treatments. If a pet’s teeth and gums are neglected, plaque and tarter can accumulate, which can cause more serious conditions that can affect the animal’s heart, liver or lungs. Dogs with teeth and gum issues may have chronic bad breath, or loss of interest in eating or chewing on their toys. Cats may drool excessively or neglect their grooming habits. Older pets are particularly prone to oral

problems, such as gingivitis, inflamed gums or loose or broken teeth. Early and often The key to maintaining good oral health during a pet’s lifetime is to start early and use various methods. Start brushing your puppy’s teeth when they are only a few weeks old. Put some toothpaste on your finger and put it in their mouths to get them familiar with having something in their mouth. There are many devices and products to help keep your dog’s teeth and gums in good shape. From paste to many chews, there are plenty of products available for your dog and cat. Beside being effective, the product should be palatable. If it is not appealing, the dog won’t eat it, and it will do no good. Check with your local pet retailer to find what is best for your dog. John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at john. mikesell@att.net.

She is very nervous here at the shelter and needs a very special person who will take their time with her so she can learn what it means to be loved. She is slow to warm up and will need a patient person to help her learn to trust humans. ZhuZhu would be best in a quiet home without children or other cats. She is pretty skinny and could stand to gain a little weight. She enjoys canned and dried food mixed together. She enjoys being petted and held, but she will let you know when she wants some alone-time.

For oily skin, you can use a product to exfoliate every day, as long as it is meant for daily use. If your skin is normal or dry, exfoliating two or three times per week is

Salon 01 estheticians are trained to recommend the proper products for use at home, as well as suggest a regular maintenance routine which could include weekly or monthly facials, and a series of microdermabrasions to keep your skin

Teens should skip an all over foundation. Cover blemishes with a blemish stick and then dab on powder in the oily T-zone, but avoid slathering on a heavy, liquid foundation. Makeup should also not be used to look older. This can result in an unnatural, harsh look. Keeping colors light and sheer will ensure the fresh, youthful glow still shines through. Trick of the Trade: To avoid drawing attention to braces, skip bright lip colors! Stick to a tinted lip balm or sheer gloss.

INSIDE & OUT Indoors

Guest suite remodel features old-world feel Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL SPACE: This West Carmel home was built in the 1980s, and the current homeowners have lived there for eight years. According to the homeowner, “The space was a kid’s playroom. They now have the basement to use, so we wanted to turn it into an extra bedroom suite for family and guests. We were picturing a grandmother’s suite.” DESIGN PHASE: The original footprint worked fairly well for the new design, though walls and plumbing had to be added to allow for a new bathroom. Adding the bathroom required that the double doors into the bedroom be moved as well. The slope of the ceiling was raised to 10 feet, stealing space from the attic, but not altering the exterior roof line. WOOD PLANK CEILING: To achieve the look the homeowner was going for, the ceiling was covered with engineered wood plank flooring from Castle Combe in a Worcester color. The floors were covered with the same material in a Cotswald color. New maple cabinetry in nutmeg with a black glaze and distressing was used for the window seat and the snack bar areas.

Before GUEST BATH DETAILS: For the bathroom, 4-inch by 16-inch Silver Disk marble floor tiles set in a chevron pattern were used. The wall tile consisted of a variety of uniquely shaped glass tiles, including a glass molding wainscoting. The shower was laid in Skyline Verona marble, using 1-inch by 1-inch tiles on the floor, 18inch by 18-inch tiles on the walls, and 12-inch by 12-inch tiles on the ceiling. Chrome Brizo faucets and a vanity from Restoration Hardware finished the space. FINAL RESULT: “I wanted an organic elegance style in the design, through texture and

“Our mission includes recognizing opportunities to support the performing arts in our community.”

After color,” the homeowner said. “My favorite part is the wood plank ceiling. Also, the dark brown, distressed flooring idea came from a ski lodge we stayed at in Utah. We liked the warmth and the old-world feel, so we wanted to have that in the guest suite.”
